DONALD TRUMP TAKING THE UNITED STATES, AND OUR BASIC DECENCY, DOWN DANGEROUS RABBIT HOLES
So what the hell is going on? Well, the answer appears to be: A Lot. Trump is clearly on his way to a fully realized Impeachment proceeding. The investigation is only just getting started, and things look really bad in terms of American pride and our basic understanding of the rule of law. But let’s be clear, here. If you only watch conservative media outlets like Fox News, you don’t know what’s really going on. So a nutshell? Donald Trump has led a group of senior American government officials in a major effort to slander Vice President Joe Biden and his son for supposed corruption in their international business dealings. So far we now know that Trump has already doubled down. How? He told media that both the Ukraine and China should investigate the Bidens. How’s that for a rabbit hole?
THESE RABBIT HOLES HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH REALITY, AND DON’T SERVE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
That’s a pretty serious rabbit hole to be taking the United States down on a tour. But even worse, we now know, for a certainty, that Trump withheld Congressionally approved defense money from Ukraine unless they investigated the Bidens. But even worse, Trump asked them to investigate the origins of the Mueller investigation itself. So why is that bad? Well, it calls into question a thorough investigation run by the United States government itself. But Trump and his surrogates have also made the same request in Australia as well as Italy. So gain, why is this bad? Because the very effort seeks to legitimize an insane set of conspiracy theories that have nothing to do with reality. But there’s even more there than that.
DONALD TRUMP REALLY DOES SEEM TO BE WORKING FOR VLADIMIR PUTIN, NOT HIS FELLOW AMERICANS
So what else could there be? Well, these conspiracy theories are all about two things, primarily. The supposed and ridiculous Deepstate conspiracy and Russia. But by Russia, we mean Vladimir Putin. Donald Trump seems to be doing everything he can to represent Vladimir Putin. But how? It’s actually pretty scary. Trump is trying to exonerate Russia for any interference in the 2016 Presidential Election. Instead, he’s trying to create a narrative where it was all done by…. the Ukraine, for the benefit of Hillary Clinton. No, that makes no sense at all. Well, not unless you only watch Fox News. And the Deepstate conspiracy theory supposedly involves multiple US government officials who want to bring Trump down. That’s little more than a campfire story, unless you watch Fox News.
TRUMP’S WORST RABBIT HOLE IS CLAIMING THIS LAW BREAKING IS ALL COMPLETELY NORMAL
But if Trump were able to pull this kabuki nonsense off, Russia gets a pass, it invalidates the Mueller Report and, last but not least, it gives Putin even more leverage to continue his illegal encroachment into the Ukraine. See? These are incredibly dangerous rabbit holes. So where are the United States interests, here? There are none. But this brazen effort does serve to help to get Trump re-elected, and to continue his work for his good friend, Vladimir Putin. And don’t take my word for it, use the Google. Just be sure not to depend exclusively on Fox News. Because if you do, you’ll simply be told all this is normal.
This. Is. Not. Normal. So pay attention.
