      POTUS 45 is setting the table to unleash hell on those who would attempt to overthrow their own government. The Russians, much like everyone else in the world (nation states with any sophistication whatsoever in intelligence gathering), absolutely attempt to create turmoil / cause havoc / whatever with opposing governments. But, Putin can be a very effective ally against the international moooslim terrorist jihad. I bet Putin’s pretty piscced that he’s been so savagely attacked by the neocommunist progressive left, especially when he wanted the vile, Bestial Bride of Bubba in the White House, so he could continue getting maximum “flexibility” from a compromised president.

      President Trump sent Mr. Bolton to Moscow to soothe Vlad’s feathers a little bit, and assure him that the whole world is about to learn the truth. BRING IT!!!

        Bolton is pretty sharp but isn’t above getting educated in the Art of Trumpism. IMO he is enjoying the heck out of watching The Boss work his magic. He (Bolton) appears to be relaxed yet focused and confident.

      Don’t share that like at all. An evil ruthless corrupt greedy man who is incredibly sensitive to real or perceived slights. A vindictive bloodthirsty SOB who is responsible for a whole lot of death, mostly in Chechnya, but also elsewhere, including in the West. The world would be a much better place without him. However, he has kept the pot from boiling over in Russia, and has a common interest with us in that he knows fanatical Islam is a threat to civilization (more importantly, to HIM). A useful ally in that existential battle, but don’t trust him. Ever. He wants to recreate the Soviet Empire, and you know how wonderful the USSR was (sarc). Bolton knows very well that Putin is no friend to the USA, but he’s even less of a friend to the jihadists, and that is why Bolton went there. The fact that Bolton is in Moscow means that Trump feels confident enough about the ‘meh Russia’ situation to risk being pilloried for showing willingness to talk to Putin.

      Saddam had a WMD program.
      Where Bush screwed up (I don’t know if it was intentionally or just idiocy at its finest) was giving him a long heads up, which meant a lot of the components got shipped to other countries, like Syria.
      But he had a program and there is proof of that…remember the gassing of the Kurds BEFORE Gulf 1? And the evidence that some of the IEDs in Iraq showed evidence of sarin gas? You don’t get sarin to use for that unless…you have a poison gas (aka. wmd) program.
      He was also harboring terrorists, like al-Zarkawi and Abu Nidal, and paying off Palestinian ones. Kind of enough of a threat to take out, but that’s just mhao.

            There is where you are totally misinformed. The USSR was a communist country whereas Russia is a democracy, something that the USA 🇺🇸 is not, thank God, that is ruled by the strongest man who can get the greatest number of votes from a misinformed population.

            Russia 🇷🇺, like all ‘Democracies, is nothing but a country where the mob elects its rulers. As Joseph Stalin, I believe, said about ‘Democracy’ “It is not the people who cast their votes that count to the chosen leader but those that count those votes.

            The United States of America 🇺🇸 is a Republic made up of 50 States, each with their own quasi government where each State sends 2 Representatives to the Senate and the House is filled in a proportional representation of the number of citizens in each State. The President of the country is elected by an Electoral College that takes into consideration the number of voters in each State but eliminates the failings of a Pure Democracy by proportioning the Electoral College Votes in a way that the rule of the mob is eliminated.

            Americans must make sure that the Left never has the opportunity to remove the Electoral College as it is the only thing that stands in the way of a tyrant being elected into the Highest Office on Earth. If the Electoral College did not exist you would all be ruled over by Killary Rotten Clingon and the tyranny of the Left would be on full display.

            God speed you American Patriots, you will only keep your Republic if you never lose sight of the mob. As your Founding Fathers said in an eerily prophetic statement “We have given you a Republic for as long as you can keep it.” and never forget that the Tree of Liberty sometimes needs the watering of the blood of Patriots and Tyrants!

      Nancy,
      Bolton thoroughly enjoyed that press conference, and no doubt working with Putin and staff. I would bet that Bolton enjoys being on the super winning team… finally.

      If there was collusion between Russia and any American Presidential candidate it would have been Putin and Hillary. Putin would prefer to deal with someone he can buy for pennies for $1000. Heck, Hillary would sell Bill for a bottle of Vodka. (Huma is another matter). So, if Russia did interfere with our election it would have been to torpedo Trump.

      However, Putin has enemies that are also America’s enemies. Uniparty is not a friend to anyone other than roaches and vultures (Soros for example). Uniparty scours the battlefields of the world after every battle it supplies both sides for $$$ and initiates the engagements.

      Peace is in Russia’s and America’s interest, not Uniparty or the World Bankers.

    Russia is a large land mass with a small economy, smaller than Canada, smaller than California, and barely larger than New York and Texas. Russia is economically nearly irrelevant.

    Putin is a Russian nationalist with dreams of reconstituting the Soviet Empire. The trick is to disabuse him of his imperialist ambitions and redirect his energies to trade and building internal national wealth. Failing that, our goal would be to settle for just blocking his international adventurism short of a shooting war between US and Russia. That should not be that hard because Putin is no fool and must know the US would win that that war handily.
