    Democrats don’t you worry one little bit the President will get the wall for us without your help. You al might as well just retire and let someone in that can help our nation rather than fight against our nation.

    Donald Trump is a man who has a hard time remembering the names of world leaders, but without prompting of any kind can regurgitate Russian propaganda. – NO COLLUSION!


    Moscow expresses worries over Montenegro joining NATO

    June 26, 2016 article in Radio Liberty (Radio Free Europe)

    Moscow has issued its strongest warning yet over the prospect of Montenegro becoming a full member of NATO. The Russian State Duma addressed a statement to the parliamentary assemblies of NATO and OSCE countries, as well as to the national parliaments of the Balkan states, warning of the possibility of "a new Cold War."


    Trump later supports the Moscow narrative

    July 19, 2018 article in the Gurdian

    Donald Trump has drawn fresh scorn for attacking Montenegro, whose people he described as “very aggressive”, suggesting the small nation could be the cause of a third world war.

    Donald Trump appeared to shove aside Dusko Markovic, the prime minister of Montenegro, at a Nato summit last year.


    Russia rewrites history

    December 4, 2018 article in the Washington Post

    It has been said that Russia is a country with an unpredictable past, as every new government tries to rewrite the historical narrative for its political advantage. In this, President Vladimir Putin’s regime has been particularly active, launching a wholesale rehabilitation of the Soviet period early on. (One of Putin’s first acts in office was restoring the Stalin-era national anthem.)

    Last month, Russian lawmakers took another big step in the same direction by approving a draft resolution that seeks to justify the Soviet Union’s war in Afghanistan from 1979 to 1989. The formal vote on the measure — proposed jointly by lawmakers from the United Russia and Communist parties — will be held before the 30th anniversary of the withdrawal of Soviet troops on Feb. 15. Hailing the decision, Communist lawmaker Nikolai Kharitonov called it a victory for “historical truth.”


    Donald Trump chimes in to support the Russian false narrative

    JAN 3, 2019 article in the Atlantic

    “Russia used to be the Soviet Union,” Trump said.

    Afghanistan made it Russia, because they went bankrupt fighting in Afghanistan. Russia … the reason Russia was in Afghanistan was because terrorists were going into Russia. They were right to be there. The problem is, it was a tough fight. And literally they went bankrupt; they went into being called Russia again, as opposed to the Soviet Union. You know, a lot of these places you’re reading about now are no longer part of Russia, because of Afghanistan.

    Not being able to work is indeed unfortunate. However, negotiations are a two-way street. Both the legislative branch (congress and senate) and the executive branch (the President) need to come to a mutual agreement. They are currently at an impasse, obviously. About two weeks ago our government decided to send 10 billion dollars to Mexico and Central America. Most of these countries (Mexico and many in Central America) are literally defined as 'narco-states', which mean they are states that have been completely corrupted and infiltrated by the drug trade and that their primary economic export to America is illegal drugs. Despite sending 10 billion to aid these countries for no reason other than to help out non-citizens residing in these foreign countries, we can't even get half of that (~5 billion) to build the border wall that will protect our own citizens. Keep in mind that thousands of people each day attempt to invade our country illegally through the southern border. Border security has never been a partisan issue in the US, and in fact is a non-partisan issue across the globe according to census data (often upwards of 80% people support strong border security and immigration laws). People want protection for their family and fellow citizens, plain and simple. Walls are how its done all around the world, including in the USA. Democrats could easily sign the bill for the border wall, but they won't in order to politically hurt Trump. Money is not the issue, obviously, as they just sent 10 billion to Mexico and Central America for aid, no strings attached, and for nothing directly in return. We need to show that same respect to our fellow tax-paying, law-abiding, hard-working citizens in America. Let's get to an agreement that both sides are happy with, and get government employees back to work with their normal pay-check. Democrats could also use this opportunity to negotiate for issues important to them like DACA and other support for illegal aliens currently residing in America, in exchange for the wall. God Bless America!

    trump don't give a damn…he thinks his shit don't stink!

  12. January 7, 2019 at 4:37 pm

    What a stupid idiot. I understand the border issue. But why shutdown the government at our expense. Many people including myself are without work. This affects contractors as well. How stupid can u be. This is ridiculous I hope u fools that voted for him are happy.

    Clearly air travel will not allow more than a few more days with the current sick outs. Some people are not wealthy like politicians and need their paychecks to get to and from work. If they weren't so out of touch they would know that

  14. January 7, 2019 at 4:37 pm

    What an idiot, 🤦 we need to start talking about asking Trump to RESIGN NOW if he refuses to represent the MAJORITY. No taxation without representation !

  15. January 7, 2019 at 4:37 pm

    Come on… That's not what the president means.
