Where Will They Draw the Line?

 

22 Veterans commit suicide everyday in the United States of America.

 

Why.

 

Is it a lack of leadership in the VA? Is it the political games played by elected officials with the FUNDS allocated for their care? Is it a lack of opportunity back here in the States when they’ve finished deployment? Is it an incompatibility between training received in the military and training required in the private sector?

While I believe all of these play some role, I believe it’s DEEPER than that. I believe pride in our mission objectives has been lost. When we see our soldiers ordered to abandon a key ally, abandoning families and communities… we see only a small piece of an even larger, camouflaged problem.

When it’s reported that FUNDING for military defense in Ukraine was being withheld until their government complied with demands made by OUR elected officials, remember… there’s MORE to that story. What’s NOT being reported? We are lucky that we have this SMALL glimpse of what is being done in our name. They stored transcripts of conversations in a highly classified server in the White House, specifically conversations they KNEW could put them in legal jeopardy…

 

What else is on that server?

 

The corruption suffered in our government now bleeds over into our military, forcing men and women of HONOR to do DIS-honorable things… because they know the dangerous place where we STAND today, and they want this nation to endure.

Blood AND treasure expended… and members of the Senate say, “The President did nothing wrong. I see no quid pro quo. Well OF COURSE I didn’t read the transcripts… even if I did they would show he did nothing wrong.”

 

 

… and we STILL fight in Afghanistan.

 

Would President Trump have asked Osama Bin Laden for dirt on his political opponents? Would the GOP find THAT acceptable? What IS “acceptable”? Is there NOTHING sacred to them anymore, other than retaining POLITICAL power?

What would it take… is there STILL a red line that no one should be allowed to cross?

 

Vindman

 

 

STAND UP AND SPEAK OUT!

 

Thank you to the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces for securing my right to STAND here today and do just that. FOR THEM… let us restore HONOR in our mission abroad and hold OURSELVES accountable, raising the bar for everyone else.

Official Campaign Announcement: I Am Resuming My Campaign.

… ding ding.

 

I am pleased to report that after 10 days of steroids and pain medication, Charlie has regained the use of his back legs! Though not 100%, he is responding well to the treatment… it might not be cancer after all!

His recovery will be slow it seems, and I will have to continue helping him more than usual, but I am confident I can resume my campaign and give it the level of attention it deserves. Unfortunately, Charlie will be focusing on his recovery and will not be returning to his role as my “campaign manager”, effectively cutting my staff in HALF.

 

ATTN: “NOW HIRING!”

 

“Jack Charbonneau 2020: Political Revolution” is now accepting resumes from candidates interested in the following position:

Presidential Campaign Manager

Hours are FLEXIBLE and the pay is… flexible, as well.

 

… but THAT does not matter right now, it’s NOT cancer!

My Paternal Grandmother died of bone cancer… after she had successfully survived THREE heart attacks! Grandpa Loren died of a heart attack just a year or so before her. My step-mother’s dad died of cancer caused by years of chewing tobacco. My Maternal Grandfather died of lung cancer. Back in the early 1980s, the cause was thought to be cigarettes. Twenty years later his son, my Uncle Ron, was diagnosed with Stage 4 prostate cancer. It had spread up his spine and throughout his body.

His doctor, recognizing the family history, told my mom, “Your son should start his yearly prostate exams when he turns 30.” And guess what… they found an “irregularity”. A nodule of some sort, that I must monitor yearly.

Cancer is vicious. It’s indiscriminate and it’s relentless. The incredible team that treated my uncle gave him an extra five years. Beyond all odds… it was quite a feat! But that is rarely the case.

Grandpa Loren died in January 1993 from a heart attack after shoveling snow. That summer, my parents insisted I stayed with Grandma to help her with the chores. By the end of that summer, she was starting her battle with bone cancer of the spine.

9 months later she was gone.

So many stories go that way, “Nine months later…” and the roller coaster stories that fill up those weeks, all the triumphs and setbacks. That time I spent with grandma left quite an impression. At 14, it was the first time the full picture had been painted for me. It’s the same lesson that everyone of us at some point in our lives HAS learned, or will eventually learn, as cancer rates are expected to CLIMB. It’s predicted that nearly 50% of us will be diagnosed with some form of cancer at some point in our lives.

… when is that “Moonshot” going to LAND?

If it were up to ME, I’d like to see it happen SOONER, rather than LATER.

 

 

As I’ve spent the last few days contemplating life or death decisions for my DOG, based on MONEY… it’s not that hard to consider the situation if it were ME. I am fairly new at being diabetic (T1D), but I was fully aware of how dependent I had become the FIRST time I filled my prescription for insulin and needles. Through no fault of my own, my body decided to attack my pancreas and shut down my ability to produce insulin.

 

If I cannot fill that prescription… I will die.

Those prescriptions cost $1000 per month out of pocket.

 

This Presidential Candidacy… 100% brought to you by Elli Lilly and Co, at whatever cost they decide to charge. For me, money has lost all value. Whatever the cost…

It is quite humbling. I’m not sure what happened to the strapping young lad who used to inhabit this body, but I can see WHY he left… this ol’ body’s not quite what it used to be!

 

Without the scientific and technical achievements that have emerged from within this FREE and OPEN society created by our Constitution, I would not be here. I owe my continued existence to this nation, and I am more than happy to do all that I can to ensure its continued existence as well.

So… now you know my “ulterior motive” for seeking the Presidency. The United States must continue to THRIVE and grow technologically to a point where EVERY type one diabetic can once again produce Beta Cells and create their own insulin. I believe someday it WILL happen, but only if the United States endures.

 

There are fights in this world that are STILL worth fighting. We must not forget- OURS is truly a BLESSED NATION! It is a GIFT with which we have been entrusted, to SHARE with all humanity…

 

I would not want to be derelict in THAT duty. 

 

JC

If I May Be So Bold…

 

What would you do IF? What COULD you do IF? Sometimes it takes a massive amount of WILL to make IF happen. Where would we BE if no one had TRIED to make IF happen?

… what if no one dared dream what IF could BE?

Sweet-dreams and lullabies are fine for some… if that’s your sort of thing. Sometimes the tales we best remember are born of struggle and misery. If joy was all we ever knew, would we appreciate it as much if we had never known the pain that comes from loss?

 

 

“… you’re going to be so sick and tired of WINNING!”

Once we fully understand what LOSING looks like, we can more fully appreciate what winning CAN be.

 

 

Of course, my sight is limited. If it were up to ME, the motivation behind the initiatives I would pursue would stem from my desire to make things better for the people I see in my life everyday. Speaking as a “housewife” from the suburbs of Kansas City… if it were up to ME? My goodness… things would look a whole lot DIFFERENT!

But right now… it’s not up to me. Right now, it’s not up to the MAJORITY of this nation. Right now it’s all up to ONE MAN, and his control over a handful of powerful legislators who remain loyal to HIM…

… and by PROXY, they give AID AND COMFORT to the man who put him into office.

 

It’s not about what I want. It’s about what SHOULD BE. We should have foreign diplomacy of the PEOPLE, but we are stuck with foreign diplomacy of the DOLLAR. If a private citizen were to KNOWINGLY undertake an action that caused the deaths of hundreds, if not THOUSANDS of lives, that citizen would no doubt face charges and be held accountable. Yet our President abandons a vital ally and a coalition of partners AS HE SEES FIT… consequences be damned.

Is THIS the best our nation can produce? Is this really the BEST WAY to choose the leader of our nation? Donald Trump is only a SYMPTOM of the greater problem within the BODY POLITIC. Don’t forget- there WAS interference in our democratic process in 2016.

Would we be in this situation IF Bernie Sanders was the 2016 Democratic nominee?

What gave RISE to Donald Trump?

 

“The President shall not be the shiniest of TWO TURDS.” -ERB, ‘Abe Lincoln’

 

 

It is my intention to appear on the ballot as an Independent candidate for President of the United States in ALL 50 States. IF I cannot appear on the ballot in ONE of them, I WILL NOT appear in ANY of them. I will not employ the “Home Field Advantage” strategy and run only in the State of Kansas… I have more RESPECT for the people of my State than to do something FOOLISH like that!

 

Ballot access for independent presidential candidates

Screenshot (84)

 

Some State laws require a cash payment to appear on the ballot, while some State laws require candidates to petition their citizens directly. States like California require candidates to collect a number of signatures equal to 1% of the total number of votes cast in the previous election. Kansas requires candidates to collect all petition signatures within a 90 day window. All 50 States have a filing deadline in or around JUNE 2020.

This means my candidacy has an “expiration date”… but then again, don’t we all?

We already know who will be on the ballot in 2020. Right now, as it stands, it will be:

 

Trump (or a supporter of HIS agenda and HIS party)

VS.

ONE of the Democratic Candidates…

 

That’s who our next President WILL BE.

 

In a “normal” time… sure. Generic Democrat all the way. But this is no NORMAL time. Ours is no normal day. We’ve been called upon to do something that will be seen by the eye of History, and judgements will be passed upon us by generations unborn. The path we follow now soon splits into TWO.

Do we continue down paths walked BEFORE? Well trodden by the likes of France, and Germany, and Rome… or do we RISE and dare follow the path that’s NEVER BEEN? By striving for equanimity within our government, we will re-affirm our commitment to Equal Justice Under Law.

What we see NOW is born of the decisions made before us, our thought processes and narratives derive from conversations old as TIME. Grudges held against OTHERS based on concepts and passions our Great-Grandparents once held. Continuing to fight ideological battles generation after generation brings us DOWN.

And now it’s being used AGAINST US by our adversaries in a Propaganda War.

 

 

Our nation was founded with a simple Declaration. Today, I propose we TAKE ACTION to secure this nation, by doing THE SAME:

 

We must END the Electoral College.

 

JC

Faith

Some might see it as a “lie”, or maybe just insincere. I’ve been open and honest about myself. Like I’ve said before, I’m part of an endangered species… I’m a Progressive Liberal from the State of Kansas. I know, it’s a bit shocking! But don’t worry,..

Our numbers are on the rise.

 

I’m a REGISTERED Democrat and have been since I turned 18. In the State of Kansas, only a registered Democrat can vote in Democratic Primary elections; just as only registered Republicans can vote in Republican Primary elections…

Independent voters are allowed to vote in BOTH. I’ve always found that to be dishonest.

When I started this campaign, I didn’t want to run as a party-affiliated candidate. I actually received an email from the chairman of the “Independent Party”©®™, telling me their party is the BEST because they’re “independent”, and they invited me to join…

NO. Thanks… but no.

I am a CANDIDATE running for office. I am NOT the representative of a financial organization or a business interest. I’m NOT advancing the agendas of generational political kingmakers, or a hereditary diplomatic dynasty.

I’m running as MYSELF, presenting ideas on policy that I would pursue if I were able to. Not as someone who is duty-bound to follow agendas crafted by special interests and political donors. Or campaign positions taken at the expense of the people, that I would be REQUIRED to support no matter how I felt about it personally… because I would be BEHOLDEN to a party for my political survival.

I don’t want my candidacy to be judged on my commitment or devotion to someone else’s ideals. If people agree with what I’m saying, then I hope they will encourage me with their support… in whatever form that happens to be. I am accepting resumes for pro-bono and volunteer campaign assistance and I am always grateful for any financial contribution.

 

RIGHT NOW questions need to be answered. Affirmations must be made. Is OURS merely WORDS printed on a faded piece of parchment… or are they INFINITE, worth MORE than the sum of what they convey? Worth more than the day they were WRITTEN. 200 years ago, young men fought and DIED for an IDEA, untried and newly born. Today, it is INSTINCTUAL for every American Citizen to consider service in defense of our Nation, to HONOR the spirit of DIVINE JUSTICE… judgements that extend beyond this mortal realm.

Do we believe in the BEDROCK principles upon which our modern society was founded? Do we STILL believe OURS is the BEST and MOST JUST form of governance? Or should we allow it to become merely WHITEWASH, covering a dark and corrupt decay hidden just below the surface.

Today, more so than almost any point in our Nation’s history, we have before us the ability to CHOOSE our collective destiny. In 2016, the American People spoke LOUD and CLEAR. Now, after almost 20 YEARS of thorough examination, we MUST conclude-

CHANGE IS IN ORDER. The current ORDER must CHANGE.

That change CANNOT be born of partisan passions or self-interested greed. If the Senate Majority Leader insists on packing our courts with judges that hold extremely conservative political views… even at the EXPENSE of our Constitutional norms that he swore an OATH to defend… then it seems only fit that the people send a PROGRESSIVE Legislature to Washington in 2020, prepared to present BOLD and COMPASSIONATE solutions to our problems. We have LOTS of work to do and conservative courts will ensure we stay within the law.

If we STILL believe Equal Justice Under Law is SUPERIOR to life-long “elected” leaders, or rule by Democratic Monarchy where CHILDREN are elevated to power without regard for the character of the child, then PARTY POLITICS and DARK MONEY INTERESTS should NOT decide our fate!

To STAND on this precipice now, where once MANY have STOOD before. As kingdoms have fallen and legislatures dissolved into our history’s written pages, they cry out to us HERE, wishing only to be SO FORTUNATE… because we have what they did not. We have the gift, given by BLOOD and by OATH…

We have the power to AMEND.

We have the ability to WRITE our own destiny. We have been given what THEY were not… we’ve been given a second chance. The Right to Redemption. A second chance that may NOT come again, BURNT BRIDGES are HARD TO REPAIR.

 

Party Politics be DAMNED! Competition brings out THE BEST, and if political parties are to survive, it will be because those parties give their endorsement to outstanding INDIVIDUALS. Leaders who stand INDEPENDENT of the influences we see at work in our government everyday.

The Parties should not be responsible for presenting to us the candidates from which we are allowed to choose. The candidates should run regardless of party endorsement. The candidates’ IDEAS should drive the debate. The Parties can endorse whomever they choose, just like EVERYONE ELSE.

Candidate driven, ideas-based discussions. An OPEN and HONEST presentation of FACTS, based in an intellectual arena SECURED by a system that cares for only ONE THING:

Preservation of the HONOR and SANCTITY of the Highest Office in this land.

 

There is no religious requirement to hold office in this land, but that does not mean we seek leaders who have NO FAITH. When we dig at the CORE of what makes up our National Identity, we find nothing SOLID… nothing to grab hold of and point to as “real”. Ours is an identity based on HOPE, shaped by our FAITH, and fully realized only when EQUALITY reigns supreme.

Our Constitution is based on a MORAL CODE older than any established religion practiced today- “Do unto OTHERS as you would have them do unto YOU.”

Our expectations of others comes from WITHIN ourselves. Our SHARED HISTORY guides us now. If we listen, we will find which way to go.

 

“… with liberty and justice for ALL.”

 

So may it be for 200 MORE.

The last couple weeks have been quite busy trying to get this video published, as well as many other things. I found it best to focus on my work as the thread unravels, focusing on what CAN BE… viewing all of this as a lesson on WHY we need this change.

I look forward to returning to a somewhat regular schedule in the next couple of days after some well deserved SLEEP.

We All Know What the Problem IS

MONEY. Spent by someone, in SUPPORT of a particular cause or a political candidate.

MONEY. Spent by someone, to work AGAINST an opposing political candidate or to support an opposing ideology.

MONEY. Spent by someone, in SUPPORT of a cause that stands antithetical to their OWN core ideals, simply because that group stands opposed to another candidate.

MONEY. Spent by someone, in support of BOTH CANDIDATES in order to establish influence with elected officials… no matter who wins an election.

Whether it’s in the SUNLIGHT or through DARK MONEY methods, the result is the SAME- legislators legislate based on MONEY, and the pursuit there of. Of course it would eventually lead to SELF-ENRICHMENT over the wellbeing of the NATION.

We are ALL BUT MEN, susceptible to fallacy and vice.

In a system based on HONOR, it was only a matter of TIME.

 

 

Without the financial support of the NRA, how many candidates over the course of the last 30 YEARS would NOT have been able to run for elected office? How many SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATES would have LOST without that support?

A generational POWERHOUSE like the NRA falls due to the same vice, the same corrupt motives seen countless times before. Now, the recklessness of individuals at the TOP of that organization have put our LIVES in jeopardy by prioritizing MONEY over SAFETY. In order to strengthen their position, they’ve worked to create a false equivalence between SAFETY and DISARMAMENT, between our Constitutional Right and financial support for a NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION.

 

Talk about effective marketing. How much MONEY did that cost?

 

 

 

MONEY shapes the conversation. MONEY decides who is INCLUDED IN that conversation. MONEY INFORMS you that there’s a conversation to be had on the subject in the FIRST PLACE…

MONEY is spent everyday to make sure you don’t realize that conversation even EXISTS.

Speaking on the issues of Equal Rights for Women in September 2010, Justice Scalia said: “Certainly the Constitution does not require discrimination on the basis of sex. The only issue is whether it prohibits it. It doesn’t.”

 

Maybe it was truly believed at some time in the past, that the protection of women should be SOLELY the responsibility of men and that women were better off NOT having to worry about taking care of themselves. One could… theoretically… construct a legal argument that would rationalize the SEPARATE STATUS of HALF of the population.

BUT… is there ANY DOUBT as to the question of EQUALITY? The only argument against Equal Rights for Women that passes as SUFFICIENT is, “They ALREADY have it.”

Well, it seems we’re ALL in agreement then… they SHOULD HAVE IT.

Yet they STILL do not.

 

WHY.

 

Imagine if HALF of the United States Senate was NOT given EQUAL STANDING. It might have been easier to pass the Affordable Care Act! It might have been easier to SHUT IT DOWN.

The effect of denying Equality to HALF of the population is- it allows the continuation of agendas that are not in the interest of THE PEOPLE, but they ARE in the interest of people and organizations that would stand to LOSE MONEY if the Constitution suddenly demanded Women must have EQUAL PAY.

MONEY should not define our Legislative Moral Agendas. MONEY should not be the deciding factor in whether someone is WORTHY of Equal Justice Under Law. From the HIGHEST COURT to the local Circuit Court. From CORRUPTION to POSSESSION…

 

… with LIBERTY and JUSTICE for ALL.

 

Not just for SOME or a SELECT FEW. If we BELIEVE it is SO, then we should MAKE IT SO!

If MONEY decides who can have ACCESS to POWER, then controlling who can have ACCESS to the MONEY makes it easier RETAIN POWER by RE-DEFINING the electorate. People who are able to make more MONEY will be able to live in… certain areas where property values are HIGHER. And those who cannot will live in… OTHER locations.

Some locations PRE-DETERMINED, in order to assist lower-income families. Locations that exist within or near ALREADY existing, lower-income neighborhoods. Now, add the ability possessed by legislators to RE-DRAW their OWN DISTRICT LINES every 10 YEARS, and we can see where the problem LIES.

 

Change the district, change the vote totals… change the representation.

Change the AGENDA.

Change the NARRATIVE, CONTROL the conversation.

 

When you consider the HUNDREDS of BILLIONS of dollars made by interests like the pharmaceutical industry or oil and gas companies, and compare that to the MINISCULE investment of TENS of MILLIONS of dollars in a handful of political races, there’s no FINANCIAL RATIONAL for these entities to support causes like Equal Rights for Women, or a $15 minimum wage, or mandating employers provide heath insurance coverage for their employees, or mandating prisons pay the added expense of providing feminine hygiene products to female prisoners.

For the de minimis price of a few campaign contributions, companies can continue to charge $1000 for insulin, while insurance companies are able to deny coverage due to the very pre-existing condition that created the need for that insulin in the first place.

I’m not saying anything NEW, we ALL have eyes to see… but all we have are “If’s and But’s”. We’ve been SOLD the idea that THIS is the way it MUST BE… by the SAME PEOPLE who run for office on our hopes for CHANGE, over, and over again every 2 to 4 years.

“THIS TIME will be different… Just send me BACK for another term!”

“… can we count on YOU for a CONTRIBUTION?”

 

We have MAJORITIES on many issues, and legislation DOES NOT MOVE.

WHY.

 

The MAJORITY of the MAJORITY decides the Legislative Agenda. It doesn’t matter the OVERALL number of Senators who support legislation, if a MAJORITY of leaders in the CONTROLLING PARTY do not approve, the legislation does NOT GET A VOTE.

THE MINORITY decides the agenda for the MAJORITY.

And those leaders are there because they are the BEST FUNDRAISERS, able to secure re-election over multiple terms, having raised HUNDREDS of MILLIONS of dollars for their political organization, and their POLITICAL PARTY. And, of course… it’s all TAX EXEMPT.

 

 

I’m not seeking the Presidency for recognition. I’m not doing this as a way to prove something. I’m doing this because… I found the ANSWER. I figured it out. I SOLVED the problem!

I decided to TRY, to answer the question that no one seems to have been able to properly address. And now, knowing that it CAN BE DONE… I see it as MY DUTY to do everything I can to bring it to the attention of every American Citizen.

To be SILENT at this moment would be nothing short of SURRENDER.

The problem within our rule of law is CLEAR to anyone who knows ANYTHING about our government- The problem is the CORRUPTION. Any system that allows the influence of MONEY to determine who will be allowed to legislate for the rest of us, will inevitably favor those with MONEY over those without.

The Framers were RIGHT… this IS an “experiment”. When our Nation’s existence is viewed in-total, as a set of FACTS and DATA, conclusions can be reached. Recommendations can be made.

Our strength and security is ensured when EVERY CITIZEN is guaranteed access to the ballot. Any system that LIMITS access or attempts to correct, distort, or interpret the WILL of the people, is inherently susceptible to corruption.

 

ONE CITIZEN=ONE VOTE. EVERY CITIZEN. EVERY ELECTION.

 

To remove the corruption from our system, we must have 100% TAX PAYER FUNDED Federal Elections. Remove the CORRUPTION, restore HONOR in governance.

Our intellectual debates are decided, not by VOTES, but by who can raise the most MONEY. Who can excite the DONORS? Then, LATER, re-brand or move toward the middle for the general election.

A 20th Century Strategy, employed within an 18th Century electoral system, now being manipulated by 21st Century technology… Where will it go from HERE?

 

“It is their Right, it is their DUTY, to throw off such government, and provide NEW GUARDS for their future Security.”

 

We celebrate our Constitution, not simply because it is OURS. We celebrate our Constitution because it is a document WORTHY of our CELEBRATION!

A document unlike any other that came before it, embodying a genius so profound it has become the STANDARD to which we compare ALL OTHERS that have followed it.

We now have what the Founders did NOT… we have the DATA. We must celebrate because the “Experiment” shows- they were right!

Today, we STAND as PROOF.

 

We must End the Electoral College.

The Case Against the President, Part 4: ‘The President’s Little Black Box’

Official transcript of the YouTube video.

 

Donald Trump began his initial attempt at building a Trump branded property in Moscow, NOT in 2015, but back in 2013. At the Miss USA Pageant in Las Vegas, he and members of his Organization met with the family of a Russian Oligarch. The SAME people that would eventually be tied up with another Trump Tower Meeting in June 2016.

A DECADES long dream would finally be realized- A Trump Tower in Moscow. It seemed that the proper paperwork was set to be greenlighted by the necessary Russian Officials… specifically, Vladimir Putin.

No one makes THAT amount of money in Russia without HIS SAY SO.

 

After the project details were agreed to in June 2013, the Trump Organization was well on its way. Mr. Trump was so excited at the prospect of a Luxury Hotel Property in Moscow, on June 18 he Tweeted: “… will (Putin) become my new best friend?”
Screenshot (69)

In October 2013, Mr. Trump went on “The Late Show with David Letterman”.

(See 14:40 mark in the video)

 

Three weeks later, on November 8, 2013, Mr. Trump would be in Russia for the Miss Universe Pageant. This would be the first time Trump’s Beauty Pageant would be held in Russia.

He stayed only one night, at the Ritz Carlton Moscow.

 

Three days later, on November 11, 2013, Trump Tweets to Aras Agalarov about the tower project in Moscow:

Screenshot (70)

Later that day, Aras’ son Emin Agalarov, who preformed for the crowd at the pageant, responded, showing his support for the project as well:

Screenshot (71)

Even though President Putin did not attend Trump’s pageant, he wanted to convey a message to Mr. Trump. Something private. Something personal.

In the days following the Pageant, Aras Agalarov instructed his daughter Sheila, to deliver a BLACK LACQUER RUSSIAN BOX to Mr. Trump in New York, at the Headquarters of the Miss Universe Pageant.

russian-lacquer-box

A little black box… just big enough to hold an envelope. Delivered by the daughter of a Russian Oligarch, from the hands of Vladimir Putin HIMSELF, to Donald J. Trump…

IN NOVEMBER 2013.

I wonder where he came up with the idea that President Putin would want to be his new best friend.

 

Shared adversity and COMMON GOALS help strengthen relationships, and this newly found friendship of theirs would be put to the test just a few months later, when President Putin invaded Ukraine and OCCUPIED CRIMEA.

After the ousting of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich in late February 2014, Putin used the chaos and unrest that followed as COVER and moved to seize Crimea, a clear violation of the law in the eyes of the International Community.

 

On March 6, 2014, President Barack Obama announced the United States would be placing SANCTIONS on Russia, including travel bans and the freezing of assets in the US, Effectively ENDING the Trump Tower Moscow project.

 

On March 17, 2014, President Obama announced ANOTHER round of sanctions, targeting banks, businesses, arms dealers, and oligarchs. This, plus a THIRD round of sanctions on March 30, 2014, would eventually cost the Russian Government, and Putin himself, BILLIONS of dollars in lost income.

It’s around this SAME TIME that Vladimir Putin initiated the Active Measures Interference Campaign in the 2016 US Elections.

One month later, on April 30, 2014, General Michael Flynn announced his resignation as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, effective August 7, 2014.

General Flynn claims he was forced out.

As President Putin said in Helsinki in 2018, “… we should be guided by FACTS.” Witnesses. Testimony. Was there communication between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin BEFORE the 2016 US Presidential Election?

According to President Putin and EVERY member of the Trump Transition Team, there was NO DIRECT COMMUNICATION between members of the campaign and the Russian Government.

It was just TWO INDEPENDENT ACTORS, working toward the SAME GOAL- defeating Hillary Clinton.

Trump was just at the RIGHT PLACE, at the RIGHT TIME, talking with the RIGHT PEOPLE. Working to further a COMMON NARRATIVE… coincidentally.

(See 8:14 mark in the video)

 

“… Putin sent me a beautiful present. With a beautiful note.”

 

It was SO OBVIOUS, every United States Intelligence Agency KNEW what was going on… and the LEADERSHIP in Congress of BOTH PARTIES was briefed at every step of the investigation.

Any suggestion that someone from the Trump Campaign colluded with Russia is absurd… it’s not like any of them could speak their language!

(See 4:30 mark in the video)

 

… STAND UP for the Rule of Law.

 

-End.
