We recently saw the return of baseball and witnessed several players kneeling during the national anthem. Our “very stable genius” tweeted that the players “… showed great disrespect for our Country and our Flag…” He has complained before about athletes kneeling, questioning their patriotism. Exercising ones’ First Amendment right to protest by kneeling, is patriotic to some. Conversely, that same constitutional right allows others to complain about the same event.

Lately it was reported that Russia tried to hack our web, looking for coronavirus vaccine information. Our government’s response to Russia seemed non-existent and the president was silent on this issue. Prior to the reporting on Russia, the FBI said China was doing the same thing, trying to steal vaccine research information on the coronavirus. Responding to China, two people have been charged and the U.S. ordered the consulate in Houston closed. So far there has not been any official response to Russia on the same issue.

On June 26 it was reported in the New York Times that Russia had a program to pay bounties on U.S. soldiers killed in Afghanistan. It was later reported that the White House was informed of this information in January. The president said he was never briefed on this information. His briefers did not like giving bad information on Russia, because it upset him. It is also well-known that he often does not read his briefs.

The White House has never refuted the information about the Russian bounties on American soldiers and there has never been any formal rebuke. Even if, and that is big if, the “very stable genius” was not briefed, he has known of its existence since June 26, and has been silent on this topic. Why does he not have trouble tweeting and complaining about kneeling being unpatriotic, complaining about China, but says nothing on a Russia program to pay bounties on American soldiers?

The writer seems to be obsessed with russia and a "report from an unknown source that Russia placed a bounty on the heads of US soldiers but failed to tell us that the report went on to say that "if true" that bounty may have been responsible for the death of 1 soldier....and I have to wonder why we never hear from the left about the $160 BILLION obama gave to Iran that has been used to Kill hundreds of US solders ...not a peep

Please document where the money turned over to Iran from their frozen accounts was used to kill hundreds of US soldiers. Any intelligence referring to that?

Keep spreading the lies and fear... https://apnews.com/f53aeebcb0f64b76a2e2a54b2b002dad

Well,, because it was their money Jersey. Obama cut a deal with them to stop their nuclear bomb ambitions in return for giving their money back to them... And then... up jumps Trump and, despite their near universal compliance with the deal, Trump blow's it all up with his falsetto power moves, lies and innuendos. The question here is jersey is how many Rubles are the Russians and Trump paying you to post your obvious treasonous unAmerican comments such as these???

The answer to your question,; because Donald Trump is a racist.

how silly, you never cease to amaze

Boh Knows Bounties? Apparently not, as the information from the NY Times anonymous source has been called into question, and thus far no proof it existed has been shown.

Blue.......Another proud, devoted Trump supporter who will proudly vote for him again. Me? I'm on the side of our troops serving overseas. I would rather err on the side of our troops, and discover what is going on if a threat is made to them.......rather than look the other way and distract as the aberrant, cowardly, and incompetant loser in the White House does. However, it does make you wonder. Head scratcher: What exactly has blue gotten out of his proud support of Trump over these last 3 and a half years?

FACT: it was in his PDB. Therefore it exists, QED.
