Bannon Resurfaces – BAAD
I cannot tell you how upset I am today. I keep hoping that some of the more moderate Trump handlers will be able to rein him in, but they failed again. It’s only 4 months and look at the disasters he has caused. He is deliberately going after everything that President Obama achieved, trying to undo Obama’s accomplishments. But what Trump does not realize or care about is that he is hurting the planet, his country, his own supporters, and himself.
The whole world is alternately laughing at Trump, as in his last trip, or bemoaning his actions. First we laugh, and then we cry. First it was ‘covfefe’ and we quizzically laughed. As Chuck Todd said, “It’s a typo, who cares?” Why lie about that?
Today we cry, again. Backing out of our commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement confuses and scares the Western world. The only people smiling are Trump, Trump’s uneducated supporters, Trump’s boss – President Bannon, and of course Putin. Trump’s childish, racist, and dictator wannabe behavior is endangering the world. He is so insecure that he honors dictators because they throw out the red carpet and honor him. In the west though, the leaders of state don’t give him special privileges and he despises them for not bowing down to him. He pushes them aside so that he can be center stage.
Yesterday, it was reported by NBC that another meeting is being investigated. This one was during the campaign at the Mayflower Hotel in D.C. “Five current and former U.S. officials said they are aware of classified intelligence suggesting there was some sort of private encounter between Trump, and his aides and the Russian envoy, despite a heated denial from Sessions,” Kushner was also a part of that group according to these officials. Investigations from the FBI and Congress are looking into that meeting which was held on April 27, 2016 during a campaign event for Trump. The officials noted that the current evidence is not proof. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/did-trump-kushner-sessions-have-undisclosed-meeting-russian-n767096.
CNN reported that sources from the hill are also investigating the April 27 meeting where Donald Trump was giving a speech. They are trying to determine whether the meeting actually took place. “Prior to the speech, then-Sen. Sessions and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak attended a small VIP reception with organizers, diplomats and others.” http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/31/politics/congress-investigating-jeff-sessions-russian-ambassador-meeting/index.html. Is it likely that Trump, who was in the Mayflower, skipped that VIP reception?
How can he be stopped?
There is no simple answer of course. But we as ordinary citizens of the United States of America can take action when our representatives in Congress don’t. Tomorrow there will be marches all over the country. #MarchForTruth on Saturday, June 3rd. Please participate if it is at all possible for you. If not, please call your congressmen and congresswomen. Tell them you want an honest investigation of Trump and his connections to Russia.
Please hurry up Special Counsel Mueller!
Don’t give up now folks. Peaceful Resistance!
