The following is an article I had published in my local paper, The Monroe Times, on June 5, 2017 in the “Letters to the Editor” column on page A4 titled “Russia Must Have an Open Media to Solve Its Problems” and I quote:
“We have Republican Donald Trump as president. He’s never run for political office before because he was a businessman. We’re trying to figure out if a former businessman, who went bankrupt six times, can be a successful president. President Trump really hasn’t done much in his first 100 days in getting his campaign promises into law, concerning how he’s going to make America great again.
Seems like his number one complaint is about the media, which he is trying to replace by using Twitter and his own undocumented comments, which have gotten him in trouble when he fired FBI Director James Comey, over the issue of how involved was President Trump with Russians during the election, involving WikiLeaks and Julian Assange. This mess confused both political parties that the Justice Department appointed a special prosecutor, Robert Mueller, to solve the problem if President Trump was colluding with the Russians and having private meetings with them in the Oval office without the press being allowed in.
This is something I don’t ever remember Democrat President Barack Obama doing. In fact, President Obama and Sec of State Hillary Clinton were critical of the way communist Russia was being run, particularly when they invaded Ukraine.
All of these problems started way back when World War II was ending and they had many conferences, with Yalta being the biggest, letting Russia control the countries of Eastern Europe that they conquered during the war. Since the communist system doesn’t have contested elections like Europe, a socialist continent and the United States, they are always going to have more turmoil than a democracy has.
Can you imagine Russia running something like C-Span, where all our important meetings are televised? And phone calls are being taken for three hours every morning rotating Republicans, Democrats and Independents. Communism has to improve if it is ever going to catch up to the United States or a Socialist country.
You’d come to that same conclusion if you read the book “THE MAN WITHOUT A FACE; The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin” by Masha Gessen. Communist Russia, just like North Korea, haven’t kept up with the demands of the people and a standard of living. I believe the big problem is that communists don’t let the farmers own the land creating food shortages.
They must have an open media if they are ever going to solve their problems.”
(REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP CAN KEEP TWEETING HIS FAKE NEWS ON TWITTER BUT THINGS ARE APT TO CHANGE IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS AFTER FORMER FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY TESTIFIES IN FRONT OF A CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE HOPEFULLY, PUBLICLY. WE’LL KNOW THEN HOPEFULLY, JUST HOW DEEP PRES TRUMP WAS INVOLVED WITH COMMUNIST RUSSIA, PARTICULARLY IN THE 2016 ELECTION WHERE THE VOTING MACHINES MIGHT HAVE EVEN BEEN TAMPERED WITH, ACCORDING TO REALITY WINNER AS REPORTED ON THE ABC EVENING NEWS ON JUNE 6, 2017 WITH PIERRE THOMAS REPORTING.
