According to an article in today’s (7–21–18) Politico, Trump is not the only Republican kissing up to the Russians. It looks like (ever so ironically) that the one time super anti communist Republican hard right, especially the gun lobby, is happily in bed with America’s avoided foes.

No wonder the GOP ‘Freedom Caucus,” lead by Congressman Jim Jordan is fighting so hard to discredit the FBI and other front line Federal agencies whose job it is to protect us from threats foreign and domestic. Extreme right-wingers are up to their necks and other body parts with the sexy female Russian agent, Mariia Butina. who it is claimed throws her entire physique into here work.

“Butina’s alleged efforts to ingratiate herself with conservative movement organizations and the Republican Party shows that Russia’s interest in Trump is not an operation focused on one man. As explained in the Justice Department affidavit, in October 2016 Butina reported to her Russian mentor that Republicans “are for us” and Democrats “against.” This is not just about one seductive spy, or even one president; it’s about how intertwined Russia and the Republican Party are becoming, and whether the Republican Party is willing and able to disentangle itself.”

So here we are with a chunk of the American government and a significant portion of its supporters aiding and abetting the enemy. But of course a large quantity of the Trump/Republican grassroots supporters are totally unaware of what it is that they so innocently cheer for. Oh, God, help us from these mindless boobs that inadvertently support those that conspire with those who threaten our national interest and continued freedom.
