Retaliates indeed. Not against Russia. Not against Trump. Against its own citizens.
Congress passes 419-3 for new sanctions against Russia and reinstates the cold war.
If you are not convinced now that there is a serious problem in the "establishment" . . . aka Congress, not sure you will ever be. But here I will try to make a compelling case.
First, there is zero evidence of any Russia meddling in our 2016 presidential election. None. All hearsay. All invented by the MSM to justify to their cult followers why the MSM lied for an entire year that Hillary would win. So they lie again. Lie upon lie upon lie. All lies. Congress passes these new sanctions, they say, in response to accusations of Russia meddling. More lies. They didn't pass the bill because of meddling. I'll get to that.
Does Congress actually believe Russia "meddled" in our elections? A few probably, but the majority do not believe any of it. Moreso, Congress has not justified, to the American people, that a new cold war is merited. All hearsay evidence and broadcast nonsense from the MSM. Congress uses this as an excuse.
Congress knew it had a fight coming with Trump. Trump wants to clean up the corruption. He has already begun to change the way Congress does business and wants more drastic changes. These changes, giving power back to the people, Trump must remove the power from the government. This is a very simple inverse relationship and this is the Big Rub in Congress.
"Don't you dare take our feed troughs or we are burning you down."
One would think that alone is the Congressional motive for voting Russian sanctions. It is not. It is very much this . . .
Raises gun and points it at American voter's heads . . .
Congress, "We will see about that".
This legislation was the PERFECT opportunity to wield this weapon against American voters. The perfect opportunity. And they know it.
"Now we will make you fear".
Welcome to America. The corrupted Republic. Only God knows where this ends. And everyone is at risk. Not just the American public. The only division of power now in the USA that has not been either wracked with controversy (President) or completely corrupt (Congress) is the Judicial branch. The American government is broken. And we may push the Great Bear into an economic corner where it may not have a choice but to strike back.
I hope we make the America PEOPLE great again. Free from this blatant government corruption. And great when power will be back in the arms of its people. I trust it is not too late.
