LOL, You are a liar. That is absolutely absurd. I also am guessing you tried to join The Women's Swim Team, but you didn't have enough balls to compete, am I right Comrade Pinko?
Well you would know who the Comrades are, being that you’re in the GOP.

Puppetmaster = Putin
Puppet = Trump

I can dumb it down more for you if you want
You are the dumb one. Putin is pulling your strings. Why is Putin's good buddy, Quid Pro Joe making loopholes for Putin colluding with Russia in The Nukes for Oil deal with Iran which will allow Russia to launder money, oil, gas, and weapons through Iran, and also give Russia $10 Billion dollars and continue to allow them to help Iran build Nuclear Weapons, Comrade?

Sorry, I am just a Patriot and an Anti-Globalist who likes to expose lying pieces of filth like you as a hobby.

Weird of you to say you’re anti-globalist considering you support Russia and they are on the other side of the globe, but oh well.

I don't support Russia, nor do I support Ukraine. These two have been at each other since Obama took office and targeted Ukraine, Syria, Libya and Egypt for COUPs Obama financed and instigated.

Prior to Obama, Ukraine and Russia were at peace. Obama is a globalist, so are The Clintons and Biden, and to achieve globalism you have to destabilize otherwise stable countries, esepcially in The Middle East, North Africa region and in places like Ukraine, Greece. The countries Obama targeted and Biden continues to carry out that plan were resistant to globalism in their respective regions. There are more countries the Globalists will target and destabilize by war, famine, pestilence, fermenting political upheaval.....by any means necessary.

You are just too uneducated and unaware to understand what needs to take place to install a global government.

Maybe you should sit back and watch it unfold because you don't understand what you are seeing.

You are watching just another phase of a multifaceted plan unfold that will lead to the eventual total control of every aspect of human life under the oppressive thumb of globalism, only your stupid ass will call it Utopia.

Go ahead take another stoopid pill and continue to post propaganda for your globalist masters. It's amusing.

The left is too desperate to equate republicans with Russia.
Interesting that the Russian dossier was commissioned by the dems to use against Trump.
Interesting that the Biden family has very lucrative transactions with both Russia and Ukraine.
Interesting that Bernie Sanders spent his honeymoon in Russia.
Interesting that the CPUSA has urged its members to vote democrat for the last 30+ years.
Thou doth protest too much.

It is much simpler than that. The government and media got them all lathered up about covid and also conditioned to outrage and obedience. Liberals will now follow wherever they are led. If Biden started a war on Mexican cartels they'd be burning down Taco Bells as we speak. It's sadly that bad now.

In 1978, Afghanistan's president, Mohammad Daud Khan, was overthrown in a coup led by left-wing military officers. Power was shared by two Marxist-Leninist groups, the People's Party and the Banner party.

The unlawful new government formed strong ties with the Soviet Union, but the people of Afghanistan rose in rebellion. So in December1979, the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan on the pretense of rescuing the illegitimate Marxist government. The Soviets then installed the Banner Party's leader, Babrak Karmal as their puppet president.

With U.S. backing, the mujahideen were able to resist the invasion and the Soviets finally withdrew in February 1989 after suffering around 15,000 dead and many more injured (as compared to 2,401 US military deaths in Afghanistan later).


We saw the same pattern in Czechoslovakia in 1968. A hardcore Marxist-Leninist president was replaced by a reformer, and the Soviet Union invaded and installed a puppet.

Ahead of that invasion, Russia placed military forces under the pretense of "military exercises".





This is the playbook being used by KGB Putin.

In 2010, Viktor Fedorovych Yanukovych was elected president of Ukraine. In 2013, under intense economic pressure from Putin, Yanukovych rejected solicitations by the EU to enter into a political and economic agreement which was a preliminary step toward joining the EU. He chose instead to forge closer ties with Russia.

During this period, Paul Manafort was a consultant to Yanukovych and was raking in millions. Yanukovych's party was against joining NATO and "spouted anti-Western rhetoric that once helped fuel violence against American marines."

The people of Ukraine rose up in protest, and in February 2014, the Ukrainian parliament held an emergency session and unanimously voted the puppet out in a vote of 380-0.

Viktor Fedorovych Yanukovych is who KGB Putin intends to install as his puppet in Kyiv once again.

It was the ouster of Yanukovych which delayed Putin's takeover of the Ukraine.


With his puppet ousted, Putin invaded Crimea the same month of Yanukovych's downfall in a fit of anger.



With his cash cow out of office, Paul Manafort wandered aimlessly for the next year and a half. Most of his employees fell away with the exceptions of GRU-trained Konstantin Kilimnik. and Rick Gates.

When Trump announced his candidacy for president, Paul Manafort offered his services for free! He clearly had ulterior motives. No one who charges what Manafort charges for his services works for free unless he had an angle.

During Trump's campaign, Manafort had access to internal polling data which he then directed Rick Gates to pass to Russian operative Konstantin Kilimnik.

Kilimnik's name appears 156 times in the Mueller report. The Mueller report goes into excruciating detail about the level of Russian interference in the 2016 election. While I have always doubted Trump personally colluded with Russia, there is evidence members inside the Trump circle did. Manafort was obviously one, as was Rick Gates.

I am fairly certain Trump was aware of the collusion but maintained his distance for plausible deniability.

During the campaign, Trump was in business negotiations with Russia to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, and he intended to gift KGB Putin with the penthouse, valued at $50 million.

However, Trump denied, denied, and denied he had business relations with Russia all during the campaign. He flat out lied, and he had his man Michael Cohen lie to Congress about it.

1. July 26, 2016: "I mean, I have nothing to do with Russia. I don't have any jobs in Russia. I'm all over the world but we're not involved in Russia," Trump tells CBS4.

2. July 26, 2016: "For the record, I have ZERO investments in Russia," Trump tweets.

3. Oct. 6, 2016: During the second presidential debate, Hillary Clinton says Russia is trying to help elect Trump, "maybe because he wants to do business in Moscow." Trump calls this assessment "so ridiculous," adding, "I know nothing about Russia ... I don't deal there."

4. Oct. 24, 2016: "I have nothing to do with Russia folks, I'll give you a written statement," Trump says at a campaign rally.

5. Jan. 11, 2017: Trump tells reporters that he has "no deals that could happen in Russia because we've stayed away," adding that he could "make deals in Russia very easily" but "I just don't want to because I think that would be a conflict."

6. Jan. 11, 2017: "Russia has never tried to use leverage over me. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA - NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!," Trump tweets.

7. Feb. 7, 2017: Trump tweets, "I don't know Putin, have no deals in Russia, and the haters are going crazy."

8. May 11, 2017: Trump tells NBC News that he has "nothing to do with Russia," other than the fact that he "sold a house to a very wealthy Russian many years ago" and hosted the Miss Universe pageant there once.


Trump spit right into the faces of the rube herd and lied to them. That's how much contempt he has for them. But his contempt for the rubes rises to a whole new level when he is caught in a lie or disgracing himself in public.

Trump does not backpedal when caught in a lie or disgracing himself. He never backpedals.

In a scene right out of Orwell's 1984, Trump fabricates a completely new reality and feeds it to the rubes and they turn on a dime and swallow his fantastical new lies like sheep!

After Trump's lie about his business dealings with Russia were outed, this is the fantasy Trump fabricated:

"[a project] we were looking at in Moscow. Everybody knew about it. ...it was a well-known project. It was during the early part of '16"

And the rubes bought it. Just like when Trump disgraced himself by praising Putin for invading Ukraine, he invented a fantasy a day or so ago that he had told Putin when he was President that he would bomb Putin if he invaded Ukraine.

And once again, the rubes have swallowed that bullshit and are parroting it far and wide!

Amazing.


And then, while Paul Manafort was whispering in his ear for free, Donald Trump suddenly starts talking about breaking up NATO!

Donald Trump is dismissing NATO as 'obsolete' — and he might be playing right into Russia's hand


Donald Trump Tells Crowd He Would Be Fine if NATO Broke Up


Is it any wonder Putin put so much effort into getting Trump elected?

Putin Endorses Donald Trump For President




After invading Crimea, the U.S. and other nations inflicted economic sanctions on Russia. However, they were not painful enough to deter KGB Putin from keeping Crimea.

But he must have done the calculus of what it would cost in sanctions if he invaded the rest of Ukraine. And so he started building up his foreign reserves so he could withstand whatever sanctions followed such an action.

However, Putin miscalculated. He did not count on Biden and the West going after those reserves and locking him out of SWIFT.

Putin must have also assumed Trump was going to get re-elected.

There is no way the American people would have supported Trump if he pulled out of NATO before the 2020 election. And there is no way the American people would have tolerated Trump waving Putin into Ukraine before the 2020 election.

Everything had to wait until after Trump's re-election.

When Trump lost, Russia's propagandists went into full gear promoting the Big Lie that Trump had won. Putin must have been incredibly pissed.

But after all these years of planning, he wasn't going to let Trump's loss be his loss. And so, with his foreign reserves finally at a level he felt would withstand sanctions, Putin made his move.

And Traitor Trump and Comrade Carlson stood on the sidelines cheering him on.

All lacking is any proof. Just how many times must you idiots still going to harp on this? If you want to bitch about something try the 2020 election. It will be much easier to prove and you won't get your panties so bunched up and prevent a bad rash.
