By Hedrick Smith | The People vs. the Politicians – Guess Who Wins? | If you suspect that politicians are rigging American elections to keep themselves in power, take a close look at Ohio ... Or if you think gerrymandering doesn't matter, check the track record this decade, which shows that Republicans have been gaining at least 16 and up to 22 extra seats in the House of Representatives every election, by cleverly manipulating election district maps ... Democrats do it, too, but Republicans are better at it and they do it in more states ... ... It's The People vs the Politicians, and what's surprising – and encouraging – is seeing how a grass roots citizens movement mobilized people power to put the heat on politicians and make them swallow and adopt a reform that will help fix our broken democracy, at least in Ohio, and make it fairer, more transparent and more representative ... Reclaim the American dream. read more

None of which had anything to do with Trump being controlled by Putin, or Russia actually influencing our elections, which they didn't as the government just stated.


The Senate put out a bipartisan report that the Putin and Russians did influence the election ...


"The Committee concurs with intelligence and open-source assessments that this influence campaign was approved by President Putin," the senators wrote.

"Further, a body of reporting...showed that Moscow sought to denigrate Secretary Clinton."

That is as crystal clear as it can ever get.

Why are you saying otherwise?

CNN: Pompeo says Trump-Putin summit should proceed

"I am confident that President Trump's meeting with Vladimir Putin will put America in a better place," Pompeo said.

Trump plans to meet one-on-one with Putin at the start of their first formal summit talks in Helsinki, Finland, before allowing other aides to participate.

Senior Senate Democrats sent a letterSaturday to Trump urging him not to meet with Putin alone.

"Mr. Putin is a trained KGB intelligence veteran who will come to this meeting well-prepared," they wrote. "As the Kremlin said last week, a one-one-one meeting with you 'absolutely suits' him. There must be other Americans in the room."

Speaking to reporters in the United Kingdom on Friday before the indictments became public, Trump pledged to raise the 2016 election meddling issue during his sit-down with Putin.

But he has also seemed to suggest that there is not much he can do to push back against the Russian leader's denials.

"He (Putin) may deny it," Trump said Thursday during the NATO summit in Brussels, Belgium, adding, "So all I can do is say, 'Did you?' and 'Don't do it again.'"

But in a tweet Saturday morning, Trump did not criticize Putin or condemn Russia's actions.

"The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration," Trump wrote.

"Why didn't they do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the FBI in September, before the Election?"

Later Saturday, Trump continued what has become a familiar refrain from him, repeating his past assertions that former President Barack Obama soft-pedaled actions over Russia's interference in the 2016 election because he thought Hillary Clinton was on a path to winning and did not want to do anything to alter that seemingly likely outcome.

"These Russian individuals did their work during the Obama years," Trump wrote on Twitter.

"Why didn't Obama do something about it? Because he thought Crooked Hillary Clinton would win, that's why. Had nothing to do with the Trump Administration, but Fake News doesn't want to report the truth, as usual!"

Well, Orange Moron, blaming Obama does not mean Putin and the Russians have stopped with their attacks, or are worried about any repercussions for attacking us once again in the mid-terms ...

Trump is such an effing gawd awful douchebag for president -- sickening watching this moron drag America's reputation thru the gutter.

Trump waves to protesters as he plays golf in Scotland

Donald Trump encounters further protests as he plays golf at his golf resort in Ayrshire. He waves several times at the protesters and they continue to chant 'no Trump, no KKK, no racist USA' ... Thousands protest across Scotland as Trump plays golf.

The Orange Putz working on his puts instead of working ... as the Brits would say, "how quaint".
