Fired-Up Friday: Russia, Russia, Russia


You know what day it is; It’s fired-up Friday.  We are fire-up by what Jan Brady would call, Russia, Russia, Russia.

We have had enough already.

Donald Trump is not a Russian agent.  After months of a suspect and politically motivated investigation started by Clinton advocate and surrogate, Barack Obama, a sitting President, no agency has connect Trump or his campaign to the Russians.  That is to say, there is no evidence of any kind that Trump or his campaign coordinated with the Russians to help subvert the US election.

The allegation is an anti-American canard.

The allegation is designed to destabilize our country, and it is part of the #resistance, which is working with former Obama surrogates, the deep state, and the #altleft to effectively manufacture a coup in the United States.  That’s the reality.

Are the Russians interested in destabilizing America?  You bet.  Did they try to influence our election.  You bet.  Is bad Vlad bad?  You bet.  He’s a KGB thug and a murderer.

He was a thug and killer long before Mr. Trump was elected.

Russia invaded and annexed the Crimea.  He invaded the Ukraine, after the US convinced the Ukraine in the 90’s to give up it’s nuclear weapons.  Russia is propping up the Syrian butcher Assad, and they are working with Iran against America in the Middle-East.

All of that happened on Mr. Obama’s watch.

All of that happened after Mr. Obama gave the Russians a little more flexibility, as he promised he would if he were re-elected. Maybe we need an investigation into the 2012 re-election of Mr. Obama and his ties to the Russians?  It’s a more plausible theory of political conspiracy than the war on Trump.

Of one thing I am certain, Russiagate is a manufactured crisis. The Russians aren’t coming, at least not to the United States. They are, however, an aspiring superpower led by a dangerous, despotic, man.

It is time Mr. Trump let the world know that while America seeks no war with Russia, it gives it no quarter to continue it’s hegemonic ways.
