US President Trump is helping Russia and gets away with it

It is not completely clear to me why there has to be proof of Trump helping Russia if everyone can see that he is. Let’s line up some facts.

Trump likes Putin. They’re buddies and talk without any American official overhearing. The US President repeatedly has a tête-à-tête with a former KGB agent who is now the Russian President. If he would have been caught doing so in secret, he would have been impeached. How come he’s allowed to do so for all to see?

A handful of Trump guys go to jail for lying to Congress. Now the heads of the US intelligence agencies have no choice but in their yearly presentation must speak the truth and tell the Senate intelligence committee that Trump is in fact totally in the dark about security. His victory laps about North Korea, Russia and ISIS he makes while the US is losing from them but he’s worked-up on Iran for nothing. Trump then disputed the last point, de facto agreeing with the rest. He also then claimed that the differences between the intelligence community and him are fake news – while the hearing was broadcasted life.

Trump lets Russia get ahead in the manufacturing new nuclear and ballistic weapons. He doesn’t protest. Rather, he happily grabs the reason to go for nuclear armament. We all knew he was going to do that when he recently greatly enlarged military expenditure and said: We hope to never have to use it but we need to be prepared. Besides that so far he’s never been caught saying the truth about anything, money is made by fighting wars, not by arming the military. (Often overlooked by the investors is that there are no profits and no losses after nuclear war since we would all be dead.) He’s laying the groundwork for a war with Russia. All absolute rulers like wars because via nationalistic sentiments, then the people unite behind the tyrant. Just his cup of tea.

Trump also doesn’t give Putin enough diplomatic opposition. Meanwhile, Russia manages to enlarges its influence on many fronts.

Trump even initiated an extraterrestrial army. Who needs this?

Does it really matter if he works together with or for Putin, is his poodle, his useful idiot, they have him over a barrel or some or all of the above?

How long will it take the US to get rid of him? How much money and how many lives will it take? Don’t blame Trump. Blame the people who let him.

 

About the Author
MM is a prolific and creative writer and thinker, an almost daily blog contributor to the Times of Israel, and previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. He often makes his readers laugh, mad, or assume he's nuts—close to perfect blogging. He's proud that his analytical short comments are removed both from left-wing and right-wing news sites. * As a frontier thinker, he sees things many don't yet. He's half a prophet. Half. Let's not exaggerate. He doesn't believe that people observe and think in a vacuum. He, therefore, wanted a broad bio that readers interested can track a bit about what (lack of) backgrounds, experiences, and education contribute to his visions. * To find less-recent posts on subject XXX among his over 1550 archived ones, go to the right-top corner of a Times of Israel page, click on the search icon and search "zuiden, XXX". One can find a second, wilder blog, to which one may subscribe, here: https://mmvanzuiden.wordpress.com/. * Like most of his readers, he believes in being friendly, respectful, and loyal. Yet, if you think those are his absolute top priorities, you might end up disappointed. His first loyalty is to the truth. He will try to stay within the limits of democratic and Jewish law, but he won't lie to support opinions or people who don't deserve that. He admits that he sometimes exaggerates to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quite a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * Sometimes he's misunderstood because his wide and diverse field of vision seldomly fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what some love about him. He has written a lot about Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (including basic statistics), Politics (Israel, the US, and the Netherlands, Activism), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, LGBTQIA+, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust, and Jewish Liberation), the Climate Crisis, Ecology and Veganism, Affairs from the news, or the Torah Portion of the Week, or new insights that suddenly befell him. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach, and, lehavdil bein chayim lechayim, Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff, and Rav Meir Lubin. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, and disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed. He aims to bring a fresh perspective rather than harp on the obvious and familiar. He loves to write encyclopedic overviews. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds should be disputed. In short, his main political positions are among others: anti-Trumpism, anti-elitism, anti-bigotry and supremacy, for Zionism, Intersectionality, and non-violence, anti those who abuse democratic liberties, anti the fake ME peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, pro-Science, pro-Free Will, anti-blaming-the-victim, and for down-to-earth, classical optimism, and happiness. * He is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (https://diethylstilbestrol.co.uk/studies/des-and-psychological-health/), born in 1953 to parents who were Dutch-Jewish Holocaust survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork. He grew up a humble listener. It took him decades to become a speaker too. Bullies and con artists almost instantaneously envy and hate him. * He holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam) – is half a doctor. He practices Re-evaluation Co-counseling since 1977, is not an official teacher anymore, and became a friendly, empowering therapist. He became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids non-violently. For a couple of years, he was active in hasbara to the Dutch-speaking public. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's being a strict vegan since 2008. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. He lives with his library in Jerusalem. Feel free to contact him. * His writing has been made possible by a (second-generation) Holocaust survivors' allowance from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. If you're a native English speaker and wonder why you should read from people whose English is only their second language, consider the advantage of having an original peek outside of your cultural bubble.
