Real Treason: Trump administration refused to respond after learning Russia offered bounties to kill US troops

Mod: This is clearly called treason. Trump betrayed our troops to the enemy. There is no more serious crime than that.

Trump administration has refused to respond after learning Russia offered bounties for killing US troops (Raw Story link): President Donald Trump has refused to authorize any response after being briefed that Russia was offering bounties for the killing of U.S. troops, according to a bombshell new report in The New York Times.

American intelligence officials have concluded that a Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing coalition forces in Afghanistan — including targeting American troops — amid the peace talks to end the long-running war there,” the newspaper reported, citing “officials briefed on the matter.”

“The United States concluded months ago that the Russian unit, which has been linked to assassination attempts and other covert operations in Europe intended to destabilize the West or take revenge on turncoats, had covertly offered rewards for successful attacks last year,” The Times explained.

Islamist militants, or armed criminal elements closely associated with them, are believed to have collected some bounty money, the officials said. Twenty Americans were killed in combat in Afghanistan in 2019, but it was not clear which killings were under suspicion.”

Trump was offered options to respond, but has taken no action. “The intelligence finding was briefed to President Trump, and the White House’s National Security Council discussed the problem at an interagency meeting in late March, the officials said.

Officials developed a menu of potential options — starting with making a diplomatic complaint to Moscow and a demand that it stop, along with an escalating series of sanctions and other possible responses, but the White House has yet to authorize any step, the officials said,” the newspaper explained.

“Any involvement with the Taliban that resulted in the deaths of American troops would also be a huge escalation of Russia’s so-called hybrid war against the United States, a strategy of destabilizing adversaries through a combination of such tactics as cyberattacks, the spread of fake news and covert and deniable military operations.”

      No, no, no...unfortunately no US citizen is required to learn the US Constitution.
      Surprisingly there are even individuals who it would behoove to know the Constitution well enough, that actually very little knowledge about it.

      For example there certain people campaigning for High Office (maybe even a Presidential Candidate) who talk about the Constitution but seem to have no knowledge about what it is and how it functions. Hell, some elected officials like Judges, and Congressmen, and even State Governors appear to have no grasp of the US constitution. It seems like a widespread epidemic among civic-minded Americans. You would assume since US Law is an important part of their profession they would know the highest law of the land (the US Constitution), but no, they don't know much if anything about.

      The worst people are the ones who talk about the Constitution all the time and brazenly call themselves Constitutional Scholars without providing any discernible credentials. They use words like unconstitutional and amendments...yet they seem to have little knowledge about the Constitution.

      So when people ask why isn't our government better or more efficient, etc... Maybe you should ask, "Have you read the US Constitution? Do you know what it says?"

      I can't speak for what the US military does today, but when I served between 1984 and 1990 the unfortunate answer was no, we were not required, nor were we offered the opportunity, to learn the US Constitution.

      The real irony is that while you are swearing to defend the US Constitution you are arguably giving up some of your Constitutional protections because you are voluntarily swearing to obey the orders of the President and officers appointed over you "according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice."

      Below is the text of the current Oath of Enlistment:
      "I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."

    If the latest national and state polls are correct, President Trump’s bid for a second term faces serious headwinds in the four months until the election.

    Nineteen different polls of voters in swing states released this week show Trump trailing former Vice President Joe Biden, including in places Republicans are unaccustomed to losing in a general election.

    Polls released Thursday by the New York Times/Siena College showed Joe Biden leading Trump by 11 percentage points in Michigan and Wisconsin, by 10 points in Pennsylvania, 9 points in North Carolina, up 7 points in Arizona, and ahead by 6 in Florida.

  21. Trump Administration Freezes Funds Intended to Benefit Hong Kong Protesters

    The Trump Administration has frozen funding intended to help people in Hong Kong evade surveillance by the Chinese government, sources with knowledge of the matter tell TIME, just as Beijing prepares to impose a new national security law that protesters fear will erode civil liberties there.

    The funding freeze came on June 9, five days after Michael Pack, an ally of President Trump, was confirmed by the Senate to lead the U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM), which oversees federal funding of several Internet freedom and foreign news initiatives, including Voice of America and Radio Free Asia.

    Senior staff at the agency were informed in an email, obtained by TIME, that Pack had suspended funding on a range of activities at the agency. In the email, USAGM’s chief financial officer Grant Turner cited a request by Pack to immediately freeze “new contracts or extensions of any contract” from the agency’s federal operations and grantees, as well as on new hires and promotions.

    The freeze affected several contracts—estimated by two sources with knowledge of them to be worth around $2 million—that would have directly benefited the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong.

  22. Trump called out for insisting he was staying in DC to help maintain ‘LAW & ORDER’ — and going golfing instead

    With pandemic cases on the rise and more protests slated in Washington D.C. over police brutality against African-Americans, Donald Trump announced on Friday afternoon that he was forgoing his weekend trip to a New Jersey golf course because he was sticking close to the White House in the interest of maintaining “LAW & ORDER.”

    According to the president on Friday, “I was going to go to Bedminster, New Jersey, this weekend, but wanted to stay in Washington, D.C. to make sure LAW & ORDER is enforced. The arsonists, anarchists, looters, and agitators have been largely stopped … I am doing what is necessary to keep our communities safe — and these people will be brought to Justice!”

    However, as CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller tweeted, that was then and this is now and the president headed out to the links on Saturday at a course in Virginia where the weather appeared to be more conducive for a round of golf.
