Compared to Obama, Trump is trouble for Russia

In 2009, after shortly taking office, Obama terminated F-22 production at 184 units and implemented the defense sequester and made NASA focus on Muslim outreach and limited fracking on public lands. Being large and twin engined, F-22 is the only answer to Russia's upcoming PAK FA. In 2017, after shortly taking office, Trump lifted the defense sequester and pumped 54 billion into the US military and made NASA focus on putting a man on Mars and lifted limitation of fracking on public lands. Trump significantly increased US military intervention in Syria, deploying thousands more troops, Apache helicopters, marine artillery, air lift operations to take Raqqa.

If I were Putin, I would have wanted Hillary to win in 2016. Hillary stated she wanted to continue the policies of Obama. Trump on the other hand is trouble for Russia.

No that can't be true! We all know that the Trump administration colluded with Russia to win the election. /sarc

If Russia gave billions of dollars to Trump as a gift, this does not guarantee Trump will not be trouble for Russia. Trump is an American, not a Russian. Russia cannot directly control Trump unless they take Trump's family members as hostage at gunpoint.

Putin is no fool and neither is Trump despite his mouth at times. Putin was able to walk all over Obama as did any other world leader than Obama bowed down to. Putin and Trump are much the same so he will be very careful in his moves. He knows he has met a sincere rival. Nonetheless, perhaps since they understand each other, they can learn to get along.

Blackmail? Such as what? Trump is not a man who can be controlled by blackmail. He's a pervert who looks at naked teen girls and everyone knows that.

What I don't get with the whole "Russia" Narrative is that IF Putin had dirt on Hillary Clinton, surely he'd keep that dirt and use it to blackmail her with future policies and or removal of sanctions.

The idea that a state actor would freely hand out information to benefit the united states is absolutely ridiculous.

With all the recent tensions being caused by Democrats and certain Anti-Trump republicans then we might get into another cold war... and these crazy war loving people will get exactly what they wanted regardless of proof of Russia's guilt or innocence because Russia is being attacked daily by the US Media.

I understand America is the worlds biggest super-power and so does Putin, he's been weary of NATO Expansion for ages so tensions have always been high, then the US decides to accuse Russia of Cyber Hacking after Russia made attempts to say they'd work with the US.

I understand Russia is not the perfect society.. a lot of it's people are unhappy... and that's terrible.. maybe politicians and media should wait for evidence before they fire all guns blazing on western media.. it seems these guys think only Americans watch American news outlets.. no.. people all over the world watch Western News Outlets... yet these media outlets spout pure speculation as if it's fact...

I don't want the US to go to war with Russia over speculation... I wish they'd have kept their mouth shut even if they suspected Russian Collusion and investigated the matter fully before trying to rile up the public with Anti-Russia rhetoric.

If I'm wrong and it turns out Russia did try to influence the election by releasing all the dirt they had on Hillary Clinton then they're still in the wrong for putting tensions between the two countries unnecessarily, fair enough, respond, add more sanctions, impeach, do whatever it is you need to do.. but don't try start a war over hear-say.. have the facts to back it up.

I didn't know that!

But I do know that about all men will look at "naked teen girls," so I'll assume that Trumps is in the lot.
I think it has something to do with both the beauty of the female form and an animal sex drive that we picked up somewhere along the evolutionary pathway lined with its many pitfalls. You may have noticed that Western females seems to have picked up on these flaws in human nature and have learned quite nicely to use them to their advantage.

Such as.......the suggestion that Donald Trump got caught up, or entrapped, in a Russian money laundering scheme. Nobody really cares about Trump's Russian prostitute "pee pee" tapes.

Money laundering is public information. Any decent private investigator would find it within months with today's technology. If they haven't found it, it's because it isn't there.

What? No it isn't. A person's financial information isn't public. If it was, we'd have all of Donald Trump's full and complete tax returns!

Paul Manafort is being investigated for money laundering. That famous "Trump Dossier" suggests that Trump was also caught up, or entrapped, in a money laundering scheme.

Cyprus bank investigated Manafort for money laundering. Bank accounts are public information.

Nowhere in your link does it verify your false claim that personal banking records are a matter of public information. It takes a judge's order to look into a person's banking habits.

Try and go into one of your friend's or employer's banks and ask to see their records!

ETA: Trump and Co are no strangers to money laundering and paid a fine for their involvement.


Money laundering was an issue for Trump's Taj Mahal Casino in Atlantic City, which was fined $10 million in 2015 for failing to report suspicious transactions. Federal rules are designed to protect the U.S. financial system from being used as a safe haven for dirty money and transnational crimes, Jennifer Shasky Calvery, then-director of the U.S. Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCen), said at the time. It was the largest penalty the agency ever levied against a casino since reporting requirements began in 2003, according to The Wall Street Journal.

"The Trump Organization admitted that it failed to implement and maintain an effective (anti-money laundering) program; failed to report suspicious transactions; failed to properly file required currency transaction reports; and failed to keep appropriate records as required by (the Bank Secrecy Act)," FinCen said in a statement.
