The Destabilization of America - Putin's Revenge

Speaking last Sunday, Carl Bernstein stated: “America has been destabilized”. 

Carl Bernstein 
My Comments: There is much chaos around the world with military/religious regimes seldom taking into account the good of the people and supporting an agenda of their own making. In the past America has been an anchor of reason and a democratic model to the world.

Not since the uncivil war of 1860-1865 has America been so divided. What began three years ago as a protest against legislators who were putting special interest ahead of the people, has turned dangerous. Be careful what you wish.    

"Drain the swamp" struck a chord with many, however the results have deviated from the intent. Corruption is rampant. Disruption is occurring. Branches of the government are non-functional. The administration is threatening to circumvent the legislative process with contrived emergency situations.  

Watergate is the only parallel to what is happening today. At that time, the system worked to prevent a president from being above the law. The system today is broken with an ineffective legislature, a tainted and stacked court (Federal/Supreme) and a president with little desire to be responsible or reasonable.

A de-stabilized America only benefits our enemies. The *unwitted or **half-witted action of Trump has played directly into a planned attack on America and the undermining of America’s influence worldwide.  Note this from a Stephen Collinson analysis articleAnother good day for Putin as turmoil grips US and UK  

The Russian leader (Putin) has made disrupting liberal democracies a core principle of his near two-decade rule, as he seeks to avenge the fall of the Soviet empire, which he experienced as a heartbroken KGB agent in East Germany

What is left to be determined; Was this a plan by Trump (collusion) or unintentional. Either way, the results are the same; America has been destabilized. "And the deeper the dysfunction gets, the better it is for Putin." 


* Unwitted: (adjective): Inadvertent; unintentional; accidental; not knowing; unaware; ignorant; oblivious; unconscious. an unwitting person.

** Half-witted (adjective):  Foolish or stupid. a half-wit.  


  1. Rhonda -

    I find it amazing that so many people have been conned by this two-bit snake oil salesman who occupies the office of the President. They have given their allegiance to someone who has no loyalty to any principles, shows loyalty only to family, and exhibits a strong affinity to authoritarian regimes, only because they wish to follow a bully from his demonic pulpit.


  2. I will post any comment that wants to offers a counter point or defend Trump. Please speak up.
