It’s been just announced that Donald Trump is planing to sign a controversial law that would restrict his ability to lift sanctions on Russia, which must result in a severe blow to his budding relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Against this backdrop, a number of statements that the White House would release in vain attempts to somehow save face have quite naturally fall flat.
Once Congress struck a deal to advance the measure last week, Trump angrily tweeted that “the phony Russian With Hunt continues,” calling it “very sad that Republicans, even some that were carried over the line on my back, do very little to protect their President.”
It’s been pointed out time and time again that this piece of legislation, should it be adopted, would be a flagrant violation of the US Constitution, which determines the prestige and independence of the position of the country’s president, but nobody seems to care. This is clearly putting Trump in a humiliating position, since he will be forced to abide the per-determined course in US foreign affairs no matter what comes next.
One just has to admit that “certain forces” in Washington are taking every possible step on the road to bringing the United States closer to some sort of civil war, since disloyalists have been plotting to bring Trump down, seeking ways to bring down the legitimate president as if his was running some sort of a banana republic. In particular, this topic has been carefully examined in a recent article published by the American Conservative.
It’s clear that political mutineers led by the Democrat core that failed to stomach Hillary Clinton’s defeat decided to unleash a “legislative revolution” that remains unprecedented in modern US history. The mutiny follows the scenario “color revolutions” that US intelligence agencies have mastered by countless repetition in various countries of the world.
The likes of George Soros, the rich and powerful oligarchs are not ashamed of their designs. No one is making a big secret out of the fact that the objective of this recent media hounding is to bring Trump down via a deep state coup. Few deny it.
To get the taste of what is about to come just take a look at “random” interceptions of conversation between Trump’s associates and unnamed Russian citizens. While the mutineers are yet to bring all of the so-called evidence, it been reported that there was an abnormal number of such conversations intercepted by US intelligence agencies. On orders higher up, the conversations were transcribed, and, contrary to law, the names of Trump associates unmasked. Then those transcripts, with names revealed, were spread to all 16 agencies of the intel community at the direction of Susan Rice, and with the possible knowledge of Barack Obama, assuring some would be leaked after Trump became president.
One would have a hard time trying to remember when there’s been so many leaks in modern history that were to be aimed at injuring a president from within his own government, and not just political leaks, but leaks of confidential, classified and secret documents. The leaks are coming out of the supposedly secure investigative and intelligence agencies of the US Government.
Russophobia has been in play in the world of US politics since the early days of McCarthyism, and recently it’s been only getting worse with a full-out anti-Russian hysteria being distrusted by every single American media source. While in the absence of any evidence Americans reject the idea of Moscow affecting the decisions of the White House in any way, the so-called Liberal forces have managed to completely paralyze bot hthe executive and legislative power in America. Under the influence of this Russophobic campaign, all liberal media sources demand to “bring Trump to justice,” although the factless and over-exaggerated topic of Russia’s alleged interference in US affairs has bored readers a while ago. According to the Fox News reports, polls show that the vast majority of Americans couldn’t care less about those allegations and they would like the media to pay attention to more pressing problems.
It is not hard to see that Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act deprives the US president of any actual power, effectively transforming him into a headless puppet that is bound to pursue foreign policy goals that were determined by those forces that were pushing for this law to be adopted.
Should American media sources stop telling horror stories about Russia, notes former Reagan’s aid, Ralph Benko in his articles for Forbes, everyone would be able to see that it may be a great friend. The author of the above mentioned piece argues that Trump didn’t fall victim of anti-Russian hysteria, and we should definitely follow his example.
