In case you haven’t connected the news dots… Putin controls the largest oil company in Russia. He made a 500 Billion dollar deal with the CEO of Exxon Mobil. Obama put sanctions in place which stopped that deal. The CIA, FBI and DOJ all concluded that Russia then hacked into our government in order to get Trump elected. When the CIA told Congress this in September (James Comey was also in that meeting), Mitch McConnell refused to tell the American people, blackmailing Obama saying he would frame it as playing partisan politics during the election. Comey released the infamous no-information letter. Mitch McConnell’s wife was picked for Trump’s cabinet. The CEO of Exxon is now the Secretary of State. Wonder why our President has been so quick to dismiss the CIA’s findings?………it gets better..2/…Here are some facts : Decide for yourselves 1) Trump owes Blackstone/ Bayrock group $560 million dollars (one of his largest debtors and widely believed to be the primary reason he won’t reveal his tax returns)
2) Blackstone is owned wholly by Russian billionaires, who owe their position to Putin and have made billions from their work with the Russian government.
3) Other companies that have borrowed from Blackstone have claimed that owing money to them is like owing to the Russian mob and while you owe them, they own you for many favors.
4) The Russian economy is badly faltering under the weight of its over-dependence on raw materials which as you know have plummeted in the last 2 years leaving the Russian economy scrambling to pay its debts.
5) Russia has an impetus to influence our election to ensure the per barrel oil prices are above $65 ( they are currently hovering around $50)
6) Russia can’t affordably get at 80% of its oil reserves and reduce its per barrel cost to compete with America at $45 or Saudi Arabia at $39. With Iranian sanctions being lifted Russia will find another inexpensive competitor increasing production and pushing Russia further down the list of suppliers.
As for Iranian sanctions, the 6 countries lifting them allowing Iran to collect on the billions it is owed for pumping oil but not being paid for it. These billions Iran can only get if the Iranian nuclear deal is signed. Trump spoke of ending the deals which would cause oil sales sanctions to be reimposed, which would make Russian oil more competitive.
7) Rex Tillerson (Trump’s pick for Secretary of State) is the head of ExxonMobil, which is in possession of patented technology that could help Putin extract 45% more oil at a significant cost savings to Russia, helping Putin put money in the Russian coffers to help reconstitute its military and finally afford to mass produce the new and improved systems that it had invented before the Russian economy had slowed so much.
8) Putin cannot get access to these new cost saving technologies OR outside oil field development money, due to US sanctions on Russia, because of its involvement in Ukrainian civil war.
9) So if Trump ends sanctions on Russia and back out of the Iranian nuclear deal, that would help Russia rebuild its economy, strengthen Putin and make Tillerson and Trump even richer, thus allowing Trump to satisfy his creditors at Blackstone.
10) With Trump’s repeatedly stated hatred of NATO and the U.N., the Russian military reconstituted, the threat to the Baltic states would be real. Russia retaking their access to the Baltic Sea from Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia and threatening the shipping of millions of cubic feet of natural gas to lower Europe from Scandinavia, allowing Russia to make a good case for its oil and gas being piped into eastern Europe.

That’s not all of it. There is way more. Wilbur Ross and others have ties to Russia as well. I’ll lay it all out for you. In 1996 Trump started looking to Russia for Business opportunities. He also got involved with the Russian mob and others. Fast forward to 2012 when Rex Tillerson signed a 500 billion dollar deal between Exxon and Putin’s Rosneft. The next year Trump was in Russia for the Miss Universe pageant. Trump had already met Putin and had a relationship with him. In fact there is video of him stating that fact. He lied when he said he didn’t. He also is heavily in debt to Blackstone group which is run by Russian oligarchs. Another fact is that American banks will not lend to him. He has been regarded in financial circles as a liar and a thief. He is also heavily in debt to Germany’s Deutsch bank which just was busted in a money laundering with the Russians. Gen. Flynn was not the only one talking to the Russians while the campaign was on going. Trump just signed an executive order allowing oil companies to hide payments to foreign governements. Obama blocked that when he became president. This helped get the deal between Exxon and Putin back on track by lifting that law. Gen Flynn, who resigned, made numerous visits to Russia, he also violated the Hatch act and Logan act by going to the Russian embassy after Obama added more sanctions. They have him on video and 5 phone calls to the deputy ambassador. This is small potatoes compared to the documented that fact Trump compromised four intelligence assets including the head of Russia’s Moscow bureau of their FSB or new KGB. He was also the guy who helped write the Trump dossier and was found with three bullets in the back of his head. Trump also along with his regime set up his cabinet picks to destroy the very institutions they are to lead. The GOP already introduced legislation to eliminate the EPA and Education department. Trump jr just got back from doing speaking at a Russian think tank making 50k for doing so. Wilbur Ross our new Commerce Secretary also has well documented ties with Russia. So does Steven Bannon and others in the regime; including Carter Page, who met with the ambassador who is also one of Russia’s top spies and a recruiter for Russia. With Tillerson and the Exxon deal Trump will get 19.5% of Rosneft which is sitting in the Cayman Islands, as I type this. They are waiting to see who tries to collect. You will see a ton of new stories with Jeff Sessions, who lied, as there are more than two meetings with the ambassador. In fact, there is a paper trail that plainly shows Sessions used campaign money to go meet him. There is video that shows they hid the ambassador as media was watching and took the ambassador for a secret meeting at Trump Tower during the election. All high treason. Mnuchin, the Treasury Secretary also has well documented ties to Russia.
That is it in a nutshell. All of that is public information, easily verifiable and the CIA and FBI have mountains more of classified intel. In fact a senior Intelligence official said Trump is compromised and a traitor.
The reason Putin invaded Ukraine was really because after the pro-Russian government was toppled. The Ukrainians started taxing the natural gas going through the pipelines in their country to Eastern and Western Europe. They threw in the Russian speaking Ukrainians as a sideshow. Syria was also about pipelines. One being Syria from Iran to Europe. The other was from Saudi Arabia through Syria to Europe. And all the materials and workers. Wilbur Ross is also connected to banks in Cyprus which are Russian tax havens. He has also been connected to the Russian mob.
The FBI acutally has wiretaps in Trump tower because a server there is connected directly to a Russian bank Apha bank. It was connected through the campaign and election. Also Trump is building a tower in Azerbaijan with a family dubbed the Corleone’s of the Caspian Sea. They are directly linked to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.

Remember when he said that the Obamacare replacement would cover more people at lower cost? The AHCA that the GOP and 45 are now pushing; they now admit will cover fewer people at a higher cost.
These are facts. Not alternative facts – these are verifiable from multiple non partisan sources. Please check them out for yourself. These facts are just some of the horrors we are facing daily. They are irrefutable. No need to bring up anyone other than the current president – everyone else should be irrelevant because no one else is currently residing in the White House. Let’s deal with the current situation, shall we?
