Of course, since the Democratic Party prior to Trump had a great love for Russia, what with the Hillary-Russia reset and the Hillary "dialing for dollars" uranium connection on behalf of the Clinton Foundation, why should it be a surprise? The Democrats have been noted for blaming others for the same things that they do routinely; it's just part of who they are and how they act. So it is a natural that they would try to turn the tables to throw everyone off track on what is really going on with Russia. And never forget President Obama's comments to Dmitri Medvedev when he thought he was off mike asking him to tell Vladimir he could be more flexible after his final election was assured.
Now news comes out in this weekend's Washington Times that the Russians have been funding through clandestine groups the protests against fracking, first in Europe and now likely even in the United States. In the case of America, they are using shell corporations based in Bermuda. And there is a perfect reason why they would want to do that and it is certainly not supportive of Trump. Gazprom, the Russian national gas company, has nearly a total monopoly on natural gas sales to Europe, since Europe is dependent on the Russian pipeline. And Trump, as recently as his just completed trip to Poland stated he wants to offer American natural gas to the Poles since the Russian supply could be cut off at any time.
I personally remember as a young Army officer in the 1970s when the pipeline deal was made, thinking how stupid it was to become captive by the one nation that could least be trusted. Of all the European continental countries, only France has some breathing room from any shut off threat due to its large nuclear capability. And if anyone thinks Europe, the United States or the world for that matter is ready now to make an immediate shift to all non-fossil fuels, well, the result will be a shutdown of the economy.
Now if you don't think the Washington Times is a reliable source, at least realize that the information came from a recently declassified document from the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) with its source the Russian news entity, Russia Today (RT). And since the mainstream media has loved to use that source as part of its non-stop war on Trump, maybe they should give a little equal time to events which can threaten our continued economic well being. No fuel, no business. No business, no jobs, no food and, in reality no anything.
Think about it. Russia is indeed a serious thorn in America's side and it's not because of Donald Trump. Russia is being Russia and in so doing they have duped the media hook, line and sinker.
