Russia is dangling the idea of an alliance between them and China in order to take down American democracy. As though such an alliance would be a big headache not just for the US but for NATO. If it sounds like a threat, looks like a threat, and resembles a threat, it is likely a threat, albeit a veiled one.
Russia will side with whomever is the winner. End of discussion.
Testing their toes in the ocean tide, Russia seems to be more of an antagonist than a fence hoarder. Russia’s global power has been vanquished. The US democrats and Progressives used Russia as their scapegoat for virtually – everything! And in instituting sanctions via Obama, they rightfully became somewhat defensive. Their economy was ripped when Obama hit the oil market. But that was Obama’s agenda – destroying the economy meant that Russia might more easily be – absorbed. AKA, Soros.
But that didn’t happen. And the rhetoric amped to the trillionth of decibels. Russia’s history in aiding the US, as being an ally, was scorched and scratched – the quash resulted in a propaganda demonization not seen in decades. And in every institution everywhere, whenever responsibility needed to be redirected, Russia became the defacto target. Pull the Trigger!
As a result, today, we really have no idea if Russia would sell us out, or if they are behind the scenes the ally to President Trump. IN a typical universe, the Art of War dictates that ; the enemy of my enemy is my friend. If God is the enemy of liberals – obviously, God is our friend. Simplistically.
But we do need to pay more attention – because the friends of my enemy are my enemy – also applies. And in this mantra, we seem to fall behind in recognizing its truth.
Who is the enemy?
Who are their allies?
Who do they routinely defile?
Answering these questions may change your mind – even a tad bit – if you allow the propaganda that has muddied and mandated your thoughts – to dissipate.
Because, in The Art of War, if you cannot identify your enemy you have surely lost. If you cannot identify your ally, then surely you will die. These basic tenants will determine virtually everything – in the end.
And it sounds so easy, and yet! It is likely the hardest, most difficult intellectual understanding you will ever find yourself debating.
I remember years ago asking my pastor, “How do you spot a wolfe? How do you know who is evil? They deceive, so how do you see past the deception?” At the time, it was perhaps one of my most grievous needs. “How can you spot them?”
I asked and asked.
The worst response: “You don’t find them – they find you.”
So. Who today is good? Who is evil? Why …?
TO me, it seems such a waste of time. We all know we have limited time on earth, why do some think that devastation and destruction is their ‘fun life’ and others think that actually contributing to society – is contributing? What makes them? How does one become so – just ‘ugly’?
I have liberal friends. But my rule, I refuse to say anything about politics – even if they do. And so we remain friends. Recently I sold a piece of furniture from my home to a couple. Apparently, my liberal friend thought an anti- face mask mandate would only be the result of only Trumpers, given they dared to come to my house maskless. Personally, it didn’t even occur to me! But she commented knowing she was talking to a Trumper. But she felt the need to make that connection. And in a derogatory way. Without concern or thought of how such a derision might make me feel.
This is where the Great Divide seems to come to a chasm and we will not succumb, but nonetheless, we are not without our own definition of pride and ego. And you need to back off. You want Portland! Go at it – she is yours! Live there, grow there, school there, do there. You want Minneapolis? Chicago? Seattle? Hey, be my guest! No one is stopping you from conquering a city and jetting it into the Dark Ages of Mad Max proportions!
Just leave the rest of us ALONE!
I don’t know if Russia is an ally or enemy right now, but I do know we have unraveled perhaps the largest Ponzi scammy, corruption, fraud, laundering, trafficking, mafia podium in one hundred years!
And people are being fed cotton candy.
Yes, there will be – an underground.
So Who Is Our Ally?
I would suggest our allies do not exist in ‘governments’ – at least not any longer – but I would suggest that there is a rising from the dredges of people who are sick and tired of being controlled into poverty! And they Believe! And it is exactly that sort of collectiveness, that destroys communism! It is why the US was considered the last country to be absorbed! Because WE THE PEOPLE ARE THE MOST RESILIENT and ingrained with Freedom!
And We Will Not Succumb.
