Opinion: Is Trump in Putin’s Pocket?

It might be possible that you didn’t believe he was the Manchurian Candidate, however after this Joint Conference in Helsinki, Finland this 16th July 2018, than you might believe it too. Who am I talking about, by all means Donald J. Trump, the United States President, he seems clearly compromised and looks like he is in the pocket of the Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. Since they can hold a secretive meeting for two hours and say whatever they like afterwards. There were no one else than two people translating between the parties and no one to monitor the event. Meaning, in the meeting they could be talking about their wives, their ex-girlfriends or even about the deals they have done in the past. Therefore, as the defensive President Trump was in the Joint Conference, it is hard to believe anything the liar says. However, he has always been apologetic over Putin and Russia. Today, it went to level of foolishness.

The key quotes of Trump foolishness is right here:

TRUMP: So let me just say that we have two thoughts. You have groups that are wondering why the FBI never took the server. Why haven’t they taken the server? Why was the FBI told to leave the office of the Democratic National Committee? I’ve been wondering that I’ve been asking that for months and months and I’ve been tweeting it out and calling it out on social media. Where is the server? I want to know where is the server and what is the server saying? With that being said, all I can do is ask the question. My people came to me Dan Coats came to me and some others they said they think it’s Russia. I have President Putin. He just said it’s not Russia. I will say this: I don’t see any reason why it would be. But I really do want to see the server but I have I have confidence in both parties. I really believe that this will probably go on for a while but I don’t think it can go on without finding out what happened to the server. What happened to the servers of the Pakistani gentleman that worked on the DNC? Where are those servers? They’re missing. Where are they? What happened to Hillary Clinton’s emails? 33000 emails gone, just gone. I think in Russia they wouldn’t be gone so easily. I think it’s a disgrace that we can’t get Hillary Clinton’s thirty three thousand e-mails. So I have great confidence in my intelligence people but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today and what he did is an incredible offer he offered to have the people working on the case come and work with their investigators, with respect to the 12 people. I think that’s an incredible offer. Thank you” (National Public Radio – ‘Transcript: Trump And Putin’s Joint Press Conference’ 16.07.2018, link: https://www.npr.org/2018/07/16/629462401/transcript-president-trump-and-russian-president-putins-joint-press-conference?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter ).

It is like he doesn’t trust the FBI, neither any other parts of his intelligence organizations, but if Putin says it isn’t so, it isn’t so. How blind or dumb is he? Trump is showing his ignorance and played ones. Thinking he can get away with this. Certainly, this should put people into fire in the United States. He shows how compromised he is. Not that I believe the Congress or Capitol Hill will do anything, because they have been helping this charade going for months. They have worked against the Russian Probe on the hill and also against the works of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Therefore, he might continue as he said nothing.

President Trump has really shown his golden nugget. I got Putin. Putin said so, therefore, I had to believe him. It is like he is oblivious about the transfers of information caught by the investigation, neither about the leaks and revelations that has been. The strong connections and the meeting between the Trump Campaign and Russians. Even the not secured meeting with former Ambassador Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. All of that should let the bell rings, still the Republican Party has done nothing or anything worth a damn.

Now that he speaks like this, the US should be shocked, but will they act upon it? I doubt it. Than they had done already. President Trump is the Manchurian Candidate and he trusts more the denial of Putin, than his intelligence organizations. You could wonder why?

Does Putin have the Pee Tape and the Golden Shower video from the Miss Universe days in Moscow?

Is that why Trump is accepting and is in the pocket of Putin?

Certainly, he has been to friendly and compromised, the US should be shocked of the way Trump has acted in public today. Peace.

Russian Probe: Mueller is unmasking Guccifer 2.0 & DC Leaks!

As the case is proceeding on the Russian interference, today is another day in the proof of conspirators from Russia who directly interfered in the United States Presidential Elections of 2016. This as 12 more Russians are indicted. This is explaining connections to the hacking from two major sites, which was even in the headlines as they leaked vital information from the inside of the Democratic Party to vandalize the affair. They clearly succeeded.

These was operations done through Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff (“GRU”) who ordered and fixed the operation, this planned hacking and release of stolen document was deliberate activity to undermine the democratic efforts in the United States. They stole e-mails and document in the April 2016 from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), they did also steal from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and finally the Clinton Campaign too.

After stealing it, they planned how to release it in June 2016 as the launch of Presidential Campaigns and also in the finalization of the long campaign season into the polls. These document was released through DC Leaks and Guccifer 2.0, these are two pages where the hacked documents was released. What these indictments show, is that they have not touched on the stolen E-Mails from campaign manager John Podesta and the Clinton Campaign, which was released in the months ahead of the polls in 2016.

Therefore, Robert Mueller is showing that he has evidence of conspiracy towards 12 more individuals, also the GRU connections, which shows that the Kremlin wanted to interfere and did it directly. This is shown in combination of the previous indictments of Russians and the Internet Research Agency and connected “businesses”. These two filings of documents shows how sophisticated the activity was. These activities are with a clear mission to show the dark side of the party organization in the United States.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has pumped up the ante. Now it is on. As well as the cases going with Paul Manafort and the coming cases on Michael Flynn, George Papadopolous, Alex Van Der Zwaan, Richard Gates, Michael Cohen and the rest. There are certainly enough documentation and leads to go anywhere. As all of them have done certain things and far from everything has come to the surface.

There are more information to come, but when it has been this much evidence and connections directly to Kremlin by the FBI. You know their will be revealed even more, when the trials are starting. As of now, the cards are hold tight by the State Prosecutors. There will be more and more people involved. Who knows where this goes, but this is far from final. Peace.

Trump Administration acts gangster-like towards the DPRK [and it is not working]

DON CORLEONE: Remember my new Consigliere, a lawyer with his briefcase can steal more than a hundred men with guns” (The Godfather, 1972).

In June 2018, President Trump and President Jong-Un signed a new agreement, which wasn’t particular special. There was no promise or change from the 1994 agreement. Therefore, the sudden rush of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to arrive in Pyongyang is showing, how misunderstood the Trump Administration has off it all. They have misunderstood the agreement and the diplomatic measures. Not that Trump has the wits to understand the trick the North Koreans has pulled-off. But they signed an agreement without technicalities and without measures securing denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. Because on the 12th June 2018, they signed to: “ the DPRK commits to work toward” and that is not stating when or how. That is a vague statement, that could mean starting tomorrow or next century. Therefore, the Trump Administration haven’t gotten anywhere closer, than they were in 1994. Even if the Administration and the President itself thinks so.

What is why Secretary Pompeo suddenly continued on the “progress” as he thought he could ambush the Party and the dictatorship. They have already a clear statement and also shown the world, they are not ready to played by Washington D.C. leadership at this point. That Pompeo thought he could play this one easily out, than the previous administrations would have done the same. However, that has not worked.

DPRK have answered to Pompeo:

The U.S. is fatally mistaken if it went to the extent of regarding that the DPRK would be compelled to accept, out of its patience, the demands reflecting its gangster-like mindset. A shorter way to denuclearization on the Korean peninsula is to remove deep-rooted mistrust and build up trust between the DPRK and the U.S. For this, both sides should be bold enough to be free from old ways which had only recorded failures and resolve the problem in a fresh manner which is never bound by the existing ways. A shortcut to it is also to take a step-by-step approach and follow the principle of simultaneous actions in resolving what is feasible one by one while giving priority to creating trust. But, if the U.S., being captivated in a fidget, tries to force upon us the old ways claimed by the previous administrations, this will get us nowhere” (KCNA: Foreign Ministry Spokesman on DPRK-U.S. High-level Talks, 07.07.2018).

If the Trump Administration thought this would be a straight forward easy game, than they are wrong. As the United States isn’t the most interesting partner for North Korea, that is China and South Korea. They are more cordial with diplomatic missions, but that is not the way of this United States. The erratic and unstable administration, who works on any whim of the President, instead of trying to figure the world out. They are blasting into the dry-wall and hoping nothing hits back.

The DPRK are not to be fooled and have calculated the efforts, all their efforts and thanks for the Singapore Summit in June, the President has gotten more respect is less lonesome in Pyongyang. He has more respect and more places to go than Beijing and Seoul. The North Korean leadership has more leverage and United States has given away theirs for a signature drive in Asia. What a waste of skin and possibility.

That is why “walking towards” can means a lot, but with no time-lines, not mechanisms or anything considering monitoring any level of progress, the North Koreans could do whatever, as the symbolic agreements is as worthless as the pen used by the Presidents.

Pompeo should have known this, but his attitude and arrogance, combined with the lack of tact, is the reason for the gangster-like ways. They are trying to ambush and change the ways of the DPRK without offering anything. That will not work, but than again, the US has lost their leverage and given way for the conference in June.

They just haven’t understood it yet. Because the Trump Administrations isn’t that educated or wise.

Ted: Say what you will, but it’s a law of nature.

Trump and his administration have been lawyered! Peace.

Fresh Senate ICA report states: “Russian preference for Trump”!

The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) have delivered a fresh Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) on the Russian Interference in the United States Presidential Election of 2016. This is the 3rd July 2018, that this still has put in fine print, says more about the muddy American Politics and the compromised Capitol Hill. Since, if they really was afraid of the interference and the foreign actors intervening in the elections. They would have acted upon more quickly and swiftly. Not letting this taking so long time. The Investigation from Robert Mueller and the FBI is different, as that would be by law and by procedure, the SSCI should have been able to follow leads and make sure there are provisions for law-officers to guide their actions by. However, that hasn’t been the case.

The investigation from Mueller are continuing, but what is being said to today in the report is damning. The reality of the matter is what the Russians did and the meetings, the involvement and their direct influence to sway the elections in favor of Trump. Nothing else than that should be fact by this point.

The report itself states: “The Committee finds the difference in confidence levels between the NSA and the CIA and FBI on the assessment that “Putin and the Russian Government aspired to help President-elect Trump’s election chances” appropriately represents analytic differences and was reached in a professional and transparent manner” (…) “The Committee concurs with intelligence and open-source assessments that this influence campaign was approved by President Putin” (…) “The ICA relies on public Russian leadership commentary, Russian state media reports, public examples of where Russian interests would have aligned with candidates’ policy statements, and a body of intelligence reporting to support the assessment that Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for Trump” (SSCI – ICA, 03.07.2018).

This is not really news anymore, this has been stated many times and in various reports. There been revelations after revelations, which has shown more and more people tied to Kremlin and Russia; Which have all happen to talk and have meetings with Trump Campaign staff and high-ranking officials. This is not happening on mere coincidence… that is happening deliberately.

That the SSCI is saying this now, is interesting timing, but still good. As the President is busy meeting the Russians and want to have secret meeting alone with Putin. If there ever was a Russian Manchurian candidate, that would be his wish. Just like when he had no press or other employees with him in the White House, talking to Russian Ambassador and Russian Foreign Minister. Because that is just weird and also suspect.

There are to many signs and to many meetings to not questioning it. Also, the act of hacking and steering the conversation in the media, which has been done by Russian use of Social Media. Clearly, Trump Campaign has gained a lot on that and the leaks of documents that was done on Clinton.

Therefore, this report is continuing the path of showing how damaged the American Democracy is, as the President is destroying it, piece by piece. As his own whims as in favor of Putin and not of the people.

This report is dropped as the meeting between Putin and Trump is happening. Where all stuff are showing such magnificent friendship, as the national security or the loyalty to own Republic doesn’t matter.

Well, the Republicans doesn’t care if they are sold the Kremlin, so why should the world care. Trump is a tard made by Putin. Pravda bitches! Peace.

Toyota explains the Trump Administration: How damaging the tariffs are on the Auto Industry!

Just as the letter is leaked from Stephen Ciccone, Group Vice President of Government Affairs within the Toyota Motor North America INC, who had written this leaked letter to the Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross. Who has defended the tariffs on steel and aluminum, which has been on the European Union and NAFTA trading partners.

The reason why this letter is interesting, is because what he reveals, that the Government and Trump Administration will not reveal. The cost of the tariffs will be in jobs in the United States and also for the consumers. The most popular car produced by Toyota, the Toyota Camry with 30 % Foreign Parts, will be costing $ 1,800 more. The company has translated the cost, if the companies put the cost and compensation on the consumers. It would be 25%, an estimated loss of sales because of it could be up 2 million units or 10 % annually. If these numbers are true, than the Trump Administration are not only destroying imports, but local production and car-sales in general. That all because of the tariffs on these set-fixated goods, which is used to produce cars.

Therefore, these tariffs made are directly as the Toyota Company in the United States through the whole chain from factory to the consumer are around 470,000 people hired through the chain. While the manufacturing piece alone is 137,000 in 10 factories (soon 11). They are in Kentucky, Indiana, Mississippi, Texas, California, Alabama, Missouri, Tennessee, Michigan and West Virginia. So it is not like this is just hitting the favorable blue-states, which the Republicans hate. This would hit in the middle of the rust-belts and heartland f the Trump Voter.

Toyota Motor has really put themselves strategically in the United States, as well as put themselves in the midst of ironic territory. As they are in the areas where the President got the most support and also has the strongest loyalty, even as they are not serving the principals of the trade. The cost will be taken by the same people who voted him in and the added cost will be on the voters themselves. Either in lose of jobs in manufacturing, if not in lack of sales as people cannot afford to buy as many cars as they could before. That is not weird as the wages in the United States has been stagnant for so long. Therefore, the rise of prices combined with lack of surging wages, they cannot manage to afford the luxury of new cars, even used ones.

Just imagine the sudden rise of 25% on each imported car and also close to 2 Grands more expensive Camry. That will be costly for plenty of people. That is not mere cents on the can of beans as Wilbur Ross did on TV after the tariffs was made public. This here is much more costly and actually affect as many as 470,000 people in the United States. That is only in Toyota, what about the all American General Motors or FORD? Who knows how they will be hurt or how much added cost this will have on the consumer? Even how many people in their production chain from manufacturing to the consumer will be hurt by these efforts made by the state?

If Toyota is sending this warning and show the real affects on the economy by doing so. In just one company, what will it do to the whole industry and also the possible outcome of the provisions made by the tariff. That should be striking, but wisdom is rare in this administration. They are not concern with other, than their own pride and deluded acts of ignorance. This is destroying industry, not creating or salvaging anything.

Toyota is sending a signal to the Trump Administration, but will they care? No they won’t, unless they are Russian Oligarchs or Putin’s henchmen in the US. Peace.
