The Upcoming Declassified Document Dump: Fun Time For The GOP — Fox News — The Russians — And Trump

Anti democratic forces inside and outside of America are about to orchestrate a dozy of a campaign to demolish Trump’s opponents. Once again employing the most sophisticated psychology algorithms, Trump and his right wing propaganda machine, in conjunction with the super effective Russian intelligence services, will flood social media with twisted interpretations of, in some cases, critically sensitive classified documents.

Not only is this reckless release of classified documents on Trump’s order an outrageous use of sensitive material for political purposes, it is also a traitorous gift of secret info to our enemies that puts the lives of American intelligence personnel at risk.

By initiating this ruthless campaign, Trump will reaffirm that there are no limits to what he will not do to grab and retain power. Of course there are those airheads addicted to reality TV who think this is all great sport and entertainment — the work of a real tough guy leader.

Now it doesn’t require any legal definition of conspiracy for the crew in the White House, the “Freedom Caucus” in Congress, the folks at Fox News and the Russians to figure out how to effectively play off of each other in the world and national social media — easy pickings. Trump’s base will love it, and the undecided likely will become unnerved. After all, the enemy has a psychological profile of every voter in America. They know exactly how to push individual people’s buttons. So watch out the skids of freedom are greased for bad times.
