Do you think tRump is the "bait"?

I know we must deal with him but Russia is attacking our democracy.
As long as we stay completely focused on him it no doubt draws the headlines away from the danger we are in.
He's a conman and has manipulated this attack into being all about him.

2. THIS

This report from many sources in May of 2018 made nary a ripple in the news as we obsess on 45.

Itís not just elections: Russia hacked the US electric grid
And it may be just the first phase of a bigger attack.

3. It's bad

 

And the cult of personality is dominating.

Not surprising.
Our superficiality is going to kill this country.
TV culture of mentally lazy Americans.

4. That was Rachel's message last night. 'The problem' is Russia is trying, [as usual],

to create chaos in our democracy. The basic, real problem is Russia, not trump.

trump is Russia's 'bait'.

barr is trump's 'bait'. [Rachel made a big point at end of her show, that barr knows that he will be the target for his Mueller report lies, - and that trump would benefit from barr taking some of the heat off of trump. Rachel then asked, again, why is barr doing this?].

5. Cyberwar is what we need to get...

recognized as a legitimate kind of war. Then when that is done...treason is kinda there. I think only the definition of war is keeping that from happening.

May be wrong...

8. Well, he is the two ton elephant

in the room. The Democrats in Congress cant go around him to enact legislation to fight Putin because of Trumpassís veto power. Heíll always be the focus until we are rid of him
