    Beware of extremism

    Yes but depending on how deep and how bad this all is and the rate of Trump decompensation that may just be an interesting historical document when and if it is ever released

    Here is what we are dealing with folks.

    I try to see how they are spinning things at FOX but I am no longer. I know they have split reality and that all it does is enrage me more as it is highly triggering. I am also curbing my continuous consumption of political commentary most of which is not really news. I am being triggered I know because I am hypervigilant and that is a sign of PTSD something I have experienced once in the past but which resolved spontaneously with time. I feel better today. Rough week.

    Me too how can I delete the post. It does seem a tad ALARMIST I need to take a deep breath and relax. Helsinki blew me away. I am snapping out of it but it has been a rough couple of years let alone weeks and the roller coaster continues.

    Beware of extremism

    Good point and I have made several posts such as this. Divison is Russia's goal and it has been sucesssfull. I am normally a fairly reasonable person. However when all you hold dear is being destroyed by a president that is likely illegitimate, has engaged in nothing short of a rein of terror on the entire country (except for the base) opposition party all probably scripted in Russia? The outrage is understandable. The feeling I got watching Trump in Helsinki was the same feeling I had watching on TV as the second plane flew into the twin towers. Same feeling of oh my god we have been attacked. Same sick feeling in my stomach. And from Putin's cockiness tossing a ball to Trump 'here the ball is in your court". Helsinki was the diplomatic equivalent of taking Trump (And the USA) be the hair and rubbing his face in crap and dragging him around the room. People should be concerned and alarmed even but should also try to keep an even keel. I think I have gotten my anxiety out of my system (and hopefully not infected others) but last Monday knocked the wind right out of my sails. I will carry on as if there is a remedy and vote. At some point this will all sort itself out the sooner the better. When I think about it I lived through a good chunk of the cold war and I was not brooding over nuclear annihilation daily so...why start now. Again great point and samizdat interesting never knew this Thanks!

    I would not want to be her right now. With both Trump and Putin possibly having a vested interest in keeping her silent.

    Yes there was a translator but it is unlikely she will be forced to disclose what she know through legal or political means. If her client was not the president of the USA she would be interrogated by intelligence as we speak. I do not think Putin would presume that the room was not bugged so likely what was discussed was in nuance and plausibly deniable.
  8. ? Trump is a malignant narcissist and can be played by his ego to a degree and it also makes him highly unstable and is driven by forces he cannot control and requires an audience. Putin is probably a psychopath but he is cool psychopath. Putin has beliefs and convictions, we may not agree with them and his tactics yes they are horrific, but he can stay on task and run a long con which he just pulled off with Trump. Trump has no convictions and there is nothing he is loyal to (as his base will discover when they cease to be useful) He is not even loyal to himself. Trumps look in Helsinki he did look defeated however I saw more and I could not place it till last evening. He looked ashamed and surprised, like he has just gotten played big time by Putin and expected one outcome, maybe a one time payback for the election help, only to learn that he is not off the hook and now must jump to Putin's tune indefinitely. Like the big tough guy who expected one thing but received quite another and it dawned on him there in Helsinki and he was still processing it there on stage in Helsinki. They are both bad. I think we can agree on that.
  9. I was just using that as as example of a situation that cannot stand. We nor NATO can just go about its business with the answer to this question in doubt in the slightest. https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/israeli-saudi-and-emirati-officials-privately-pushed-for-trump-to-strike-a-grand-bargain-with-putin https://washingtonmonthly.com/2018/07/16/a-terrifying-meeting-in-helsinki/
  10. Thank you for this. I have become unglued. This is by design. The daily assaults to the conscious over the past 2 years of Trumps occupation and the destruction of everything that I believe in has literally turned the world upside down and has taken a toll. I am losing my humanity. Which is how they win. You become as they are. I need time to reflect. I really am losing it. Why is everyone NOT losing it? So many are just tuned out. We may be on the brink of war, only Trump knows what he has agreed to with Putin. NATO is reading tea leaves with mealtime info and crafting a response. Silence from the government but then the government is the national emergency. I have to laugh. It is indeed a comedy of the absurd. You could not make it up. That was a really good question. Rhetorical I presume. Putin is saner than Trump. The second the rockets launch the the game is over. Deterrence has failed at that point. The whole ideal of the game was to not launch. MAD. The day one is launched both sides lose. I do not want war but that seems like a contingency we may be headed for. I made my argument above with what I feel is sound reasoning. We do not know how deep this conspiracy goes but it looks like the GOP is saturated. Something is going to give it has to. This cannot stand. The security of the free world is in jeopardy. If we are lucky Putin may just want to humiliate the USA rub our noses in it. But you cannot have a president that is beholden to a foreign enemy and if congress will not act the military must restore security. I do not see a political solution. Even an impeachment takes time. Time we do not have. The elections are under attack and we do not defend from it. Make you want to tune out. Whatever is going to happen will happen and there is nothing we can do except vote and pray for the best.
  11. Putin's propaganda machine has shattered reality. We are all in deep trouble folks. Putin, I fear, has won. We, as a nation. have lost. The Right feels Trump has their back. Soon he will turn his back on them for they where merely a political tool used by Putin and Trump to achieve power. Trump has no moral compass and the right will learn this although now it may be too late. Mostly they will be quite when the full scope of what has occurred comes out. The evangelical Christians and the NRA where tools. Their dreams of a white gun toting immigrant hating diplopia are going up in flames before their eyes. And it Trump is PROVEN (most already know and have seen enough) Trump not only colluded but then delivered the entire country to Putin? Trumps base will put away their MAGA hats in the garage at some point but even treason will not make them turn on Trump. Trump's hard core base will only see the manipulator for what he is when Trump turns on them. Then, much to all of our collective horror, is will too late.

    Reality Wars

    Trump has shattered reality. The quintessential narcissist Trump has done to the nation what a narcissist does to their victim. If we are fortunate the Helsinki unveiling of Trump the Russian Puppet (And that is what we saw) may shake a few more on the Right to conscious but I do not expect a torrent. Those under the spell, his rabid base, will never see what is going on and never snap out of it. We as a nation cannot wait for the GOP to 'come around' or 'do the right thing' because we do not know how deep the infiltration goes. Every second Trump remains at the helm we are in terrible DANGER! We re in the eye of the hurricane right now. We endured as a nation a political script likely written in Moscow and acted out by trump et el on the entire nation. Think about this. The hatred and division he fanned. We will soon be seeing the back end of the storm that hopefully sweeps all of these clowns out of office and into a Federal Penitentiary. If the summit was not a disaster in and of itself the FACT THAT NOBODY BUT THE RUSSIANS KNOW WHAT HAPPENED IN THE ROOM BETWEEN TRUMP AND PUTIN? That is terrifying. I would not turn my back on Trump if he was in a room with me let alone trust the safety and security of the FREE WORLD to this MADMAN AND TRAITOR. This current situation cannot stand. It cannot wait till the election that is under attack and undefended. The entire GOP are now complicit in Trump's treason. Trump is facing legal charges that will likely result in life in prison for him and many cronies. Dose all you know of Trumps personality lead you to believe he will go to prison before he runs to Putin for help in propping up his regime? The walls are closing in on Trump and sadly we are all in the box right along with him.
  13. We cannot afford to give Trump the benefit of the doubt. If Russia where to launch an attack on the USA right now we have NO assurance Trump would retaliate. To even have a wisp of a shadow of a doubt about that makes him a dire risk to national security. In fact this is the biggest national security FAILURE perhaps in in history. Trump or his fellow cronies had access to our secrets and could have done great damage. Everything else in this administration is blatantly up for sale surely we are badly compromised and I am sure the assessments are being made right now. NATO must be mobilizing right now because everyone knows Trump is in Putin's pocket Our allies are surely not giving Trump the benefit of the doubt. The GOP will not protect the country so the military is our only hope. I am reading the US nuclear posture (link below) that say NATO can mobilize for something such as this. Not explicitly for this contingency but it meets the criteria. This was an act of war and aggression especially if it leads to Trump being controlled by Putin. The co opting of power by a Russian subversion campaign of epic proportions of the US government. I am sure there are contingencies for many scenarios HOPEFULLY this one surely for smaller nation but maybe not for the US under the assumption that what has happened COULD NEVER HAPPEN. We are all at risk right now. This is worse than the Cuban missile crisis I am sure BOTH our military's must be on alert.....or not...the calm before the storm? Something is going to happen.I will not pretend to know what it will be but it is going to be BIG and NOT GOOD. I think We cannot wait for Mueller our security is at risk every second Trump remains in power. Trump has to be removed but he may possibly try to get Russia to assist and defend him. What about Monday night Russia was firing off missiles as if in victory and it was not just to celebrate the summit victory. Putin tossing trump a ball hey the ball is in your court now? That was a big Bad word YOU to the entire USA. Followed that night with missal tests? My read....WE (Russia) win. We have your flag (The Presidency). Come and do something about it. Any thoughts. I am really very upset about all this I suppose not everyone follows this stuff because most seem to be going about business as usual. https://media.defense.gov/2018/Feb/02/2001872886/-1/-1/1/2018-NUCLEAR-POSTURE-REVIEW-FINAL-REPORT.PDF https://www.nato.int/ We are all on our own to try to see where thing are headed.

    If Putin has something on Trump...

    Yes and we cannot give him the benefit of the doubt. If Russia where to launch an attack on the USA right now we have NO assurance Trump would retaliate. To even have a wisp of a shadow of a doubt about that makes him a dire risk to national security. In fact this is the biggest national security FAILURE in history. Just because Trump had access to that info does not mean he or his fellow cronies could get it all out but surely we are badly compromised and I am sure the assessments are being made right now. NATO must be mobilizing right now because everyone know Trump is in Putin's pocket because our allies are surely not giving Trump the benefit of the doubt.
