Nowhere to Run...

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Daytona Condo Realty, 386-405-4408

It is incredibly sad to watch America more and more resembling… Russia. For someone well familiar with Russia, seeing many of the things I ran away, is scary. Even worse is that so many Americans see nothing wrong here.

My Russian friends both here and back in Russia are laughing. Putin did what I was saying all along: that Putin would easily outsmart Trump.

I was warning of the dangers, but read what I was writing and see what actually happened outpaced even my craziest concerns. The progression of Trumpism is so much more than what I could ever imagine.

And we are fine.

No problem.

Even ridiculous amount of time spent on praising Trump personally North Korea style… It is beyond funny to watch creating a personality cult like this in America.

I am ashamed… aren’t you?

You would not hear this kind of praising of Putin… Painfully shameful to watch it, especially for a Russian guy, who came her as refugee.

Russia is coming. Not only by forging the election of our President, but by creating the political climate too closely resembling Russia. Russia has infiltrated the WH, our President is a very Russian-type moron with all the signs of Brezhnev’s Alzheimer era. I never thought that replacing our President by Putin could actually be better for the nation… A terrible thought, I know…

There is no other place to run to, so I am going to fight this creeping change to the very fabric of this nation. I have seen it, I know how it sounds, how it looks, and how it smells…

Today I changed my political affiliation from a republican to no affiliation.

I will not be a part of Trump party.

I refuse to fall this low and accept it as a norm.

I am watching TV, and the host is saying that of course, American people to see things and understand it.

I have yet to see it.

I'm far better off in my business than I was at any time in the last 8 years. However I do wish he'd loose his twitter account, that is so embarassing.

Jon, I have to disagree with you on Trump. We can still be friends and disagree.

Jon,  Trying to figure out what the dangers you are talking about. What has he actually done that frightens you?  I hear many people talk about what they think he is going to do but what bad things has he actually done?

Tammy Lankford, - people do well and not well under any regime. It does make the basic dishonesty any nicer.

I absolutely could financially do so much better in Russia.

Mike Frazier - I know. I am afraid we are seing the demise of republican party. But to tell you the truth they deserve it. Do not get in bed with a devil, and they did... Knowing perfectly well that it was for political expediency, not for the country.

Tim Maitski - the danger is that you do not even see it. It is creeping, but in small increments, and we get used to it.

A guy, who on the podium with other candidates could attack women the way he did. The guy, who proved to be the most ignorant of any presidents of the last several decades and by a huge margin, lied more than any candidate simply because of ignorance, how you managed to see nothing? Imagine if we offer Putin to lift sanction in exchange for a KGB dossier on Trump. Then you would know that they really have on him.

You do not see that he is a puppet of Putin? No problem with Crimea, which was the blow to the Post war accord? And the precedent for other powers to change the status quo? Throwing Ukraine under the bus? You are a smart man, when you listen to him, you do not see that he is a moron? Can you not see it?

Anything this man touches is a disaster. Voting in UN, 9 countries only supported US, even after unprecedented pressure by Nikki Haley. ""The United States will remember this day in which it was singled out for attack in this assembly," Haley said. "We will remember it when we are called upon to once again make the world's largest contribution" to the UN and when other member nations ask Washington "to pay even more and to use our influence for their benefit."

Leaving the Climate Change accord, diminishing US in every possible way... The list is longer than the road from Daytona to Washington, but the real danger is that you do not see the danger. This is a very clever and well run KGB operation. I have an antidot, and see and smell it way before many others. I lived through that, I know how it works, and I know that we are on a very clippery slope. The worst thing is that it really cab't be undone. If we are OK with a moron, how can you undo it? You are no longer ask for decency, for expertise, for anything.

When I was a kid, I learned one great lesson. Anytime someone brag how smart s/he is and how well educated they are, they are morons. No decent person would say that. That's how I know that he is a moron. And thousand of other reasons. Open your eyes. It is so blatant that people... donot see it. What a disaster.

Tim Maitski - just one example. Yesterday for a few minutes people around Trump were praised him. Of course, they know that he loves comliments. Probably, he told them to praise him, I do not know. But it shamefully resembled personality cult that anyone of my age, who lived in Russia, China, or North Korea would immediately recognize.

Well, what's the damage?

Huge. because this is a lie, and there is no such things as innocent political lies. That's how we get tyrants. Because when you keep praising someone, s/he starts believing in what they say.

But what's the problem? Remember Saddam? People around him were telling him not what they needed to say, but what he would like to listen. And he was absolutely confident that his army could beat US handily... he was not avoiding the conflict because he was sure that what his generals were telling him about coward americans, was true.

Was there any damage?

One huge difference in Trump and Putin is Trump will definitely be out of office in 7 more years if not 3 more. Putin is a dictator who can stay as long as he wants. As far as the demise of either party I hope both go away.

Jon,  I agree that he's an asshole and acts like a moron.  But it sounds like it's still a matter of the future tyranical acts and no current tyranical acts yet.

I don't know who's who in the Ukraine so I can't say much on that.

As far as the UN, what a joke they are.   That's where you see all of those tyrants get their way.  Robert Mugabe as a goodwill ambassador?  

Getting out of the climate accord was great.  Until China and India restrict their emissions, anything that the US does is insignificant.  It was just a entry way to a world government and world taxaion.  

All of the smart presidents of the past, Clinton, Bush and Obama were so smart that now we have to worry about getting nuked by the North Koreans.  How did that happen?  All of those talks with Iran are resulting in the same thing.  

Obama was a genius with the economy after adding 9 Trillion to the debt.

He's had a year to become a tyrant.  So far I haven't seen a thing he has done that is tyranical.  Yes, you don't like how he talks.  You don't like his personality.  You think he's a moron.  But that isn't a tyrant.

Tim Maitski - and if we do nothing, this future would come. The poroblem is we are creative the fertile grounds for this. And not really that we do not see it, otherwise we wouldn't see these regrets about his twitter. Twitter shows who he is pure and simple. So, instead of dealing with who the guy really is, we would rather hide this.

Our problem is not that sounds like a moron on Twitter, the problem is that he is a moron.

I wold not agree with you about him not being a tyrant. The guy who is considtently trying to supress free press, calling it fake news, creating cinicism and disregard for the news. We should not have the news to democrats and the news for republicans, and this is what would follow. Tyrants is a process, we have made a few powerful steps in this direction.

One is fighting the press, the other is lying about absolutely everythinbg. Would would make him Putin's brother? Not acknowledging anything. Trumo hasn't, of course, completed the process, but he is the first, who started it and we for the most part do not care.

Jon,  It's about time someone called out the BS that is served up as "news".  

One recent, ongoing example.  Trump says that he has no intention of firing Mueller.  So all week CNN has been running story after story about, "what if" Trump fires Mueller.  They discuss it ad nauseum with pundit after pundit.  They keep having that crazy Congress lady from California saying that he's going to do it December 22nd after everyone goes home.  Now when he doesn't fire him they will take credit for exposing it before he had a chance to do it.  

Do you really think that 80% of Americans were against the tax bill?  Most of those polls are fake and then they use them to run days of stories based on them.  

I think it's important to keep the media on its toes and make them know we don't automatically trust them.  I've just seen too much bias and distortion.

One other point that I thought about yesterday thinking about this tax bill.  If Trump is a tyrant, he sure is a wimpy, weak ineffective tyrant.  That tax bill was a shadow of what Trump had been promising. Why couldn't he squeeze and intimidate the lawmakers to give him exactly what he wanted?  Where's the postcard?  Where's the few brackets?  Where's the simplification?  Where's the no carry interest taken away from the hedge fund managers?  Where's the 15% corporate rate?  It looks like he did a lot of compromising.  I didn't think tyrants did much compromising.  They just demanded things and intimidated the opposition.  Now Trump has to live with them replaying all of those empty promises making him look weak and foolish.  Do tyrants allow that to happen?

Tim Maitski - what Trump says has absoluely no value. I have never seen any politician lying like Trump.

Of course, he is trying to find the way to fire Mueller. I can't believe you do not see it.

We may never know the full involvement of Trumop with Russians, because Putin and KGB will keep it secret, unless we offer to trade for sanctions. Then you will see that he is over his head in Russia, and it is treason at best. I can only imagine the KGB profile on Putin. These guys do excellent phsycological profiles on everyone of potential interest, and I had the pleasure to read one on Putin, you can imagine how well they analyze the weak points and how they could be exploited.

Trump is a textbook operation of KGB. And what he succeded best is that making you saying this about the media. Of course, the only reason he has not removed Mueleer yet is because of this threat from the people, that he would have worse times than what he has now.

How can you not see it is beyond me.

I guess when you live here, you do not cherish what you have. You do not believe things that are honest (and it is media, yes, it is media, and it is the best thing you so far still have in this country even after all this crap from Trump and Putin) and yo are sort of fine with obvious dishonesty simply because Trum and Co every day teaching us that it is new normal.

If you only knew what it means to be honest media in Russia... Trump envies Putin, because he cvan't do what Putin does, what Putin has. And these are two things: money and power. Trump is is pennyless compared to Putin, whose wealth is guessed to be at $200 Billion, and power. Tyrants do not get power. Tyrants become Presidents and start building what later makes them tyrants. Trump started doing it before he even became the President. And is doing it at incredible speed.

Tim, you are not a redneck. Do you seriously believe that cutting taxes at the times of excellent economy makes any sense? There is not a single serious economist who agrees with that. It is to make a political point in otherwise failed Presidency. Nothing done, and it is great as whatever he does is  disaster.

So if people are against the tax bill, good for them. It does not pass a smell test.

The House and Senate versions were a bit different, and they got together to work it out and then at the last moment this so called Corker provision, which was not in the House bill, not in the Senate bill makes it into the final bill... Where did it come from? Corker did not know about it... Who does it serve? Trump. How come you do not see that tyhis shallow man is a simple crook.

BTW, I was at Trump University. What he says that he did not know anything is BS, we watched a long video address to us, and the whole thing was a criminal operation.

We thought and got our money back. In our group of 30 people only 2 of us, brokers, were able to walk away. The rest of the guys lost their money. Of course, this is not why I think Trump is the worst that could happen to this country. It just popped inmy memory.

And another byu the way. Monday his press secretary confirmed that the President would not benefit from any provision of the tax bill, and even the opposite was true. And yesterday, when asked, she said the President is a citizen like everybody else, so what's wrong if he does. Check it. When you watch it, it is much stronger than what I am saying.

I am redidng a lot of Russian media and participate in Russian social media. I read about what would be coming and happening here long before it came and happened. It was like a dripping campaign. One word here, one word there. They were not making sense, they did not seem like having anything in common. And then these things were happening, and I could see and recognize that I read about it a year before... It is a coup. Of this moron aganst the nation. One day you will know it...Of course, unless Trum with the help of republicans would shut down the investigation.

Trump is saying he wold  not fire mueller only because he fire Comey, and it proved to be worse. Were you upset that he had a meeting in the ovel office with Russians, and did not let any american reporter there? Did you notice that he invited the ambassador to the Oval office, which is quite extraordinalry, as this is not the level of people who get to oval office. None of them had any business there.

Why did this meeting even happen? A few reasons. One was that Russians asked Trump to do it? And when Trump agreed, like no Obama or Bush or even Clintonb ever do, then Putin made it work for him. He showed that he could do this, what was a demonstration of powers. And it was used to calm the aspirations of Ukraine, Belorussia, Kazakhstan, Georgia... It showed to them that they can't expect protection from US... Oh, well...

Tim Maitski - why you think that Trump even knows that the final bill differes from the promises? I would be very surprised if he hs any idea of what actually is in the bill. All he needed was that it had to be the biggest (most massive) bill, which actually, it wasn't, but who cares yet about another lie from him

Tim Maitski - it seems like you have a well defined picture of a tyrant. I don''t. Putin negotiates, and he is by far not a democratic leader, but to me whoever attacks our democracy deserves exposure. So, I am all for his tweets. Let everybody see who the hell he really is.

Jon,  We are watching two different movies.  Eventually, we will see which movie is correct.  A few observations.

Who was involved in actually paying Russians for a fake dossier that was then used to influence an election?  That would be Hillary Clinton and the Democrats.

Who was involved in a deal that allowed the Russians to control 20% of US uranium?  That would be Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.

Who did Wikileaks say gave them the hacked Democrat emails?  They said it definitely wasn't the Russians and all but said it was Seth Rich.  Conveniently he got knocked off in a robbery where nothing was taken. Hmmmm.

Who  had written the verdict of the Hillary investigation several months before it was finished and before everyone was interviewed?   That would be James Comey.  

Who came out with a sourced story several days before Comey testified saying that Comey's statement was going to say that Comey never told Trump that he wasn't under investigation.  Who mocked and ridiculed Trump when he said that Comey told him three times that he wasn't under investigation?    Then Comey's statement was exactly as Trump had said.  And we should continue to trust those sources?  That news agency was CNN.  

Does a tyrant want the public to have as many guns as they like or does a tyrant look to control or confiscate guns from the public?

Tim Maitski - I never thought I would see political affiliation so defining the outlook. Until yesterday I was a registered repiblican. I was very upset with Obama, and thought that finally republicans can get it all right. And then I saw Trump on the posium. First it sounded interesting, sort of fresh... After 3 debates, I was done listening to the same crap again and again, repeating the stuff, that was explained as a lie, nothing discouraged him.

I do not understnd how you can even be comparig all this stuff. yo are looking at the moron, you are listening to a moron, and yet you aould be more pissed off with CNN, or smeone else. Oh well. And you keep me puzzling with the way you describe tyranny. Now there are guns...

Tim Maitski - I do not believe we really are watching two different videos. It is the same video. But you would not be startled by a shameful liar there. you would put him on the same level as someone from CNN, or something else.

I see the start of the show. Lying with unbelievable sort of impunity. I loe that sentence that it was not Russians who gave the emails to Wikileaks.

Things are not going to change, and we probably would be seeing them differently, no matter what.
