#BREAKING*!* America has elected a TRAITOR as @POTUS.

When I was a young boy, my father gave me his Hallicrafters brand shortwave radio. When the tubes warmed up in the metal chassis, I could tune in numerous worldwide broadcasts in myriad languages. I also found the music from other nations equally enthralling.
Stations from the Netherlands, Swaziland, Australia, Rhodesia (now South Africa), England, Spain, China, Japan, India, Germany, Poland, and all points in between opened my mind and expanded my intellectual horizons. Many broadcasts were in the nation’s native language, though some broadcasts were in English, including some from Russia.
As I listened to Russian Pravda shortwave news broadcasts (which were in perfect, accent-free English), my father warned me that what they told were lies.
Even though what the Pravda news broadcasters said sounded “reasonable” and even “true,” Pravda, which was then the Communist government-owned propaganda agency, would tell “little” lies, or twist and pervert the truth and facts of the story, so that it made the entire story false. They never bothered to tell a “whopper” of a lie, just a few little changes here, and there, which when compiled, changed the entire story into a lie. Interestingly, the word Pravda in Russian means “truth.”
That is a distinctly and uniquely Russian technique, which hasn’t changed. We recently were subjected to it on an unparalleled level in our recent General Election with the abundant proliferation of Internet-based “Fake News” from impoverished former Communist-bloc nations which our nation’s Intelligence and Security Agencies later reported was used specifically to sway the vote for Donald Trump. Never in the history of our nation has external national influence ever been used to elect a Presidential Candidate.
The Russians and their evil government have long been our sworn enemies. And yet, we now – or, more accurately, the GOP – act as if everything is hunky dory.
It is not.
We saw Donald Trump repeat lies from the Russian propaganda agency Sputnik during his campaign. And we are now seeing the exact same Pravda-like propaganda techniques used by Donald Trump who now occupies our White House as President. He has promulgated and proliferated lies in abundance, ranging from the size of the number inaugural attendees, to the weather & climatic conditions on the day, including accusations that massive voter fraud in the opposition party resulted in his election (go figure), even though all 50 States’ Secretaries of State have said no such thing occurred in their states. Never before have the American people been so betrayed. The illegitimacy of Donald Trump’s presidency is unquestionable because Russian influence swayed voters who believed a lie.
A Russian lie.
Donald Trump is reckless and careless with National Security. He continues to use an unsecured mobile/cellular phone. He uses unsecured private email servers. He discusses National Security matters openly in public in the presence of dinner guests. He doesn’t secure or make any effort to conceal National Security documents on his desk in the Oval Office when photographs are made. He has made openly anti-American comments to members of the television press corps. He has made numerous sympathetic remarks about former KGB Director Vladimir Putin, who is now the Russian commissar. Donald Trump’s choice for National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn, admitted that he lied about covert contact with Russian government officials, and resigned in shame only 24 days later.
There is no question Russia is influencing our government.
Our people believe Russian lies.
“Phone records and intercepted calls show that members of Donald J. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and other Trump associates had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election, according to four current and former American officials.
“American law enforcement and intelligence agencies intercepted the communications around the same time that they were discovering evidence that Russia was trying to disrupt the presidential election by hacking into the Democratic National Committee, three of the officials said. The intelligence agencies then sought to learn whether the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians on the hacking or other efforts to influence the election.”
