Putin is looking to meet up with his puppet in May.

Courtesy of BBC: 

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said he would like to meet US President Donald Trump at an Arctic nations summit in Finland in May. 

He again rejected allegations that Russia had interfered in the 2016 US presidential election. 

And he said sanctions against Russia were also hurting the US and Europe. 

Mr Trump had voiced hopes for improved relations with Moscow, but he has been dogged by claims of links between his election campaign and Russia. 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and both houses of the US Congress are investigating alleged Russian interference in the election.

I would suggest that Putin is really looking forward to getting a one on one with his puppet, because with the FBI and other intelligence agencies watching his every move that is the only way he can communicate what he wants from him shielded from prying eyes.

Or so he assumes.

However if I were working with the intelligence agencies I would be damn sure to be monitoring every move that Trump and Putin made while working on their bromance in Finland.

Now the question to ask is whether Donald Trump is dumb enough to meet Putin in person with this investigation still going on, or better yet, is Putin giving him any choice?

    It may be a great time to put a travel ban on mr don john trump along with his family of misfits. He is under extreme suspicion and investigation. He does not deserve a pass anymore than the average citizen banned from travel. A LAIR AND CHEAT is a liar and cheat no matter who he is. So deny travel to mr don john trump to meet with a enemy of the usa citizens. If charge mr don john trump with treason and espionage today and force him to resign today.

      Lol. Ok nutter butter. Are YOU going to impose the first travel ban on a US President? Because apparently travel bans can just be placed on Presidents lol? Keep drinking you are hilarious. The IQ level around here is fascinating.

      Yes fascinating indeed. Trump may be the first lousy acting president fraud to be ban to travel while investigations are uncovering his crimes and scams. Yep. He will be the first. The Justice Dept has already tapped his entire life. and it wont stop. He has zero privacy now. They are monitoring everything, even camaras in the shitter. LOL is right.

    Putin says "oooo my little pet, you owe me tons of money and you will pay one way or another. You and your dumb shit friends will lift the sanctions and send me money today or else" Yep old little putin owns don the con and if don pays visit to putin in finland he will drop to his knees and bend over. Dicktators love dominance over their prey and victims. And party animal senor pepe trumpstein the bad hombre will OBEY.

      How do you drop to your knees and bend over? Look, donnie is far too old and fat to pull of those moves.

  3. It seems they have a lot to discuss. Maybe they will be able to discuss in Russia...after Trump skips the country or is deported after HIS immunity.
    He could live out his days tending roses in a country dasha with 24 gilded bathrooms. Maybe fall from the fifth story...
    He is guilty as hell.

    His dishonor to our nation's presidency?
    There are no words.

      Once trust is lost... how will America recover?
      By getting rid of the puppet/traitor's cabal without making martyrs of them -- no witch hunt, just solid intel (not that the Trumpeters will believe it -- there is the biggest problem).

      But will America be able to avoid a civil war between Freedom/Libertarians & Progressives who believe in Equality (as stated in the Constitution I don't need to add, do I?). Both sides claim to be the true patriots.

      Right now, this is a biggest reality show on earth: and the fog is gradually -- soon quickly -- lifting...

      Can impeachment happen before some hideous distraction ploy, real or fabricated...

    " The exploitation is done by online trolls and bots, synchronized to spread messages and false stories that promote cultural tension."Watts told the committee that among the troll accounts monitored by his team, “The most common words found in English-speaking Twitter user profiles were God, military, Trump, family, country, conservative, Christian, America, and Constitution.” These social cues helped the trolls connect with Americans who might vote for Trump."Leftists can be played in similar ways. At the hearing, Rumer observed that Russia had exploited the Occupy Wall Street movement to feed class antagonism and discredit American democracy."

    Appearing on MSNBC’s AM Joy, an intelligence expert said that, in order to understand why Donald Trump never says anything bad about Russian President Vladimir Putin, it would be helpful to see Trump’s tax returns.

    Speaking with host Joy Reid, Malcolm Nance likened Trump’s relationship with Putin to a gambler and his bookie.

    “You know, Donald Trump doesn’t say anything negative about Vladimir Putin because, if he owes money to Vladimir Putin — someone who has a gambling debt never insults their bookie,” Nance explained.

    “Donald Trump, in that respect, that’s why we want to have a look at these tax returns,” he continued. “What is the source of his wealth? Where did that wealth come from? Was it financed by someone else? Do they hold him over a bag, so to speak?”

    “That will get you the motivation that will answer the wonderful question which has not been answered at all, which is why? Why does this White House do all of the Kremlin’s bidding.” Nance concluded.

      It's a bad analogy. Oftentimes, the bookie is murdered by someone who owes and doesn't want to pay up.

    "These are dangerous times. Never have so many people had so much access to so much knowledge and yet have been so resistant to learning anything. "risk throwing away centuries of accumulated knowledge and undermining the practices and habits that allow us to develop new knowledge."The death of expertise is not just a rejection of existing knowledge. It is fundamentally a rejection of science and dispassionate rationality, which are the foundations of modern civilization."
    "Participation in political, intellectual, and scientific life until the early 20th century was far more circumscribed, with debates about science, philosophy, and public policy all conducted by a small circle of educated males with pen and ink. Those were not exactly the
    Good Old Days, and they weren’t that long ago. The time when most people didn’t finish high school, when very few went to college, and when only a tiny fraction of the population entered professions is still within living memory of many Americans."

    Trump’s strange new tweet on the Russia probe reveals his own weakness

  12. Anonymous9:02 AM

    Heading into last year’s election, Republicans knew that this problem — the tea party predicament, the Freedom Caucus conundrum, the Boehner bog — had to be dealt with. The GOP needed a large and capable leader who could either unite the whole party (at least temporarily) with a bold, conservative vision, or peel off some centrist Democratic support with innovative policy. They needed an above-average president.

    What they got is unimaginably distant from any of these goals. They got a leader who is empty — devoid of even moderately detailed preferences and incapable of using policy details in the course of political persuasion.

    Republicans got a leader who is impatient and easily distracted — by cable news on the Russian scandal or by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s TV ratings. The content and consequences of his tweets are bad enough; worse is the disordered personality traits they reveal — vindictiveness, shallowness and lack of discipline. Trump spent a total of 18 days on his health-care bill before demanding a vote. And he made no speech to the nation to advance his ideas — as every other recent president would have done.

    Republicans got an administration that is incompetent. The White House policy process has been erratic and disorganized. It has failed to provide expert analysis or assistance to Congress and did little to effectively advocate the president’s policy in ways that could have united the party.

    Republicans got an administration that is morally small. Trump’s proposed budget would require massive cuts in disease research, global development and agricultural programs — just as a famine gathers a hideous strength. The proposed budget practices random acts of gratuitous cruelty.

    This is a pretty bad combination: empty, easily distracted, vindictive, shallow, impatient, incompetent and morally small. This is not the profile of a governing party.

    And Now, the Dreaded Trump Curse

    These days, the last thing you want is to be known as a Friend of Trump. He’s doing great — he’s president, for heaven’s sake. His kids are getting jobs, his hotels are getting promoted 24/7. He goes golfing more than your average Palm Beach retiree. Meanwhile, the people he hangs around with are watching their reputations crumble into smithereens.

    This has an impact on congressional politics. If you’re a swing vote in the House or the Senate, the idea of getting a hug in the Oval Office might seem more like a threat than an opportunity. Let’s consider some of the F.O.T.s who’ve already been undone:

    U.S. sweeping up Russian hackers in a broad global dragnet

    The arrests caught the Russian hackers totally by surprise. One was at a Finnish border crossing. Another was arriving at an airport in Spain. A third was dining at a restaurant in Prague. Still others were at luxury resorts in the Maldives and Thailand.

    Many have now turned up in U.S. courts. The long arm of U.S. law enforcement is spanning the globe like never before to bring criminal hackers to justice.

    And it may not be just about crime. The Justice Department cites fuzzy and overlapping boundaries between criminal hackers and Russian intelligence agencies, the same ones the U.S. accuses of coordinating the hacking and subsequent disclosure of emails from the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.

    President Donald Trump dismisses allegations that Russia meddled in the election as “fake news,” but the FBI and congressional committees have launched probes and the Obama administration ordered the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats in late December.

    How Russia and Putin Benefit From a Trump Presidency

    If anyone doubts Russia is benefiting from the Donald Trump presidency, they just haven’t thought about it enough. Russia benefits from the Trump presidency in any number of ways—at least 20 by my count.

    They would also unquestionably benefit even more if the hubbub caused by their interference with the American presidential election on Trump’s behalf hadn’t cast such a spotlight on the issue, which has produced continuing revelations about their connections to high-level Trump staffers, basically every few days, for the entire Trump presidency.

    Before getting into how Russia benefits, it’s important that we’re all aware of two established facts:

    The seventeen agencies of the U.S. Intelligence Community unanimously concluded with high confidence that Russia ran a significant operation to interfere with the U.S. presidential election.
    The FBI director recently confirmed under oath that Donald Trump and his campaign/administration are under active FBI investigation for possibly colluding with Russia in this plot to affect the election.

    Without further ado, here are 20 ways Russia benefits from the Trump presidency so far, and how they may in the future:

  17. Anonymous10:23 AM

    The man who headed Donald Trump’s presidential campaign last summer is in a squeeze.

    Paul Manafort is not only a key figure in the FBI investigation of whether Trump associates knew of or colluded in Russia’s cyber meddling in last year’s U.S. elections, but he also faces legal issues about his business and personal finances that could give investigators leverage to compel his cooperation.

    The FBI, Justice Department and Treasury Department are examining whether any of Manafort’s millions of dollars in consulting income from pro-Russian Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs were laundered from corrupt sources, whether he properly disclosed all his foreign bank accounts each year to the U.S. government and whether he paid taxes on all foreign income, two sources familiar with the inquiry said.

    Also at issue is whether Manafort needed to register as a foreign agent on behalf of Ukraine or Russia and failed to do so, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the sprawling inquiries are secret and ongoing.

    Financial experts at the FBI, Justice Department and Treasury Department are trying to reconstruct the globe-trotting political and business strategist’s trail of cash, the sources said. Over most of a decade beginning in 2005, Manafort and his firm had lucrative consulting contracts with Ukraine’s pro-Russian former president, Viktor Yanukovych, and at least two Ukrainian billionaires with ties to the Kremlin.

    I feel so sorry for the other countries involved in the Arctic: Norway, Sweden, Finland and Canada. None of this bodes well for them or for the Arctic itself. Trump and Putin will want to carve that massive, icy area up between them and pillage it of its minerals. No more sea ice. No more polar bears, seals, Arctic hares and other animals. No more nomadic peoples either. And the melting sea ice will be the beginning of the end of coastal places around the world. What do Trump or Putin care about the future of the planet. By the time they finish destroying it for personal gain, there will not be much to save. What gloomy thoughts anything connected with Trump inspires on such a sunny, cool but not cold Saturday afternoon.

    Senators question White House on security clearances to Flynn, Trump adviser Gorka

    Four Democratic senators have charged in a series of letters that the appointment of Michael Flynn as Donald Trump’s national security adviser “might have jeopardized national security” and demanded information on why seemingly obvious red flags were overlooked in his vetting for the position.

    The senators also questioned the granting of a top-secret security clearance to Sebastian Gorka, a former editor at the Breitbart website who’s now a Trump senior adviser. The senators accused Gorka of failing to note on his U.S. citizenship application that he’d belonged to a neo-Nazi organization in his native Hungary.
