    "Putin's Buddy Trump Is About To Get National Security Briefings. Intel Officers Are Worried."

    So reads a headline in the July 25 Huffington Post. The body of the article explains why the intelligence community might well be worried about Trump's having access to national security secrets that could very likely and substantially benefit the Russian dictator:

    "Trump has called for following Moscow's lead on various global issues and questioned whether it's necessary for the U.S. to always defend other members of NATO.,,His rhetoric about foreign policy nearly matches the message coming our of Moscow: that America has little need for its long time partners in Europe - particularly in NATO - or elsewhere, and that the US should have less influence internationally. Trump has extensive business and financial ties to Russia. The Washington Post has described is relationship with Putin as a "bromance".

    The Huffpost continues:

    "Trump's deep relationship with Russia has the intelignce community worried.

    'Never have we had a candidate tied to a foreign power, especially one that is so hostile to the US in so many ways., and one one that is actively messing with our election' said one former senior intelligence official. 'many [in the intelligence community] don't care about US politics and pride themselves on being nonpartisan, but the ties to Russia are deeply disturbing.'"


    Trump claims that he will put America first. But if he puts the interests of his friend Putin, one of the worlds' most powerful, odious and dangerous dictators, who, in the opinion of many, wants to destroy NATO, threaten Western Europe and who is prolonging the Syrian refugee crisis by propping up Assad, is that putting the interests of the American people first?

    Or is it putting America last?

    Is this going to be necessary in the United States too?

    The Government of France has released a free smartphone application, SAIP (Information Alert System for People), that will alert users to terrorist attacks, nuclear incidents, dam failures, or other exceptional events. The emergency system sends warnings directly to smartphones, and will include a brief description of what is happening and advice on how to react.

    Without doubt, America needs to take all reasonable and Constitutional means to protect our country and our people from terror attacks.

    We also need to make sure that our country is protected from installing someone as head of our government who makes statements such as the following, which Donald Trump was quoted as making on July 27.

    "I will tell you this, Russia: If you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing."

    Whether this statement is interpreted as an invitation to Russia to hack into Hillary Clinton's emails as Secretary of State, or as a hope that Russia had already done so, welcoming the possible or potential hacking by a foreign power of US government documents of any nature raises obvious questions about whether Trump's primary loyalty is to the United States, or, as so many of his other speeches and actions have indicated, to himself and his own interests.

    Making any statement that could possibly be interpreted as supporting interference by a foreign government, especially one headed by one of the world's most powerful and dangerous dictators, in our own electoral process, cannot help but raise questions, not only about Trump's loyalty to the United States, but about his mental stability.

    See my comment posted on July 28, 2016 for an analysis of how Trump's off the wall (but not "treasonous" - that kind of shouting coming from some people on the Democratic side is not worthy of anyone who takes democracy seriously - let us leave the lunatic accusations of "treason" to the Trump supporters who are making this charge against Hillary Clinton) comments about alleged Russian hacking into DNC emails may relate to Donald Trump's immigration proposals.

    I will not repeat them here.

    The first illegal immigrants to this country were called Pilgrims, and landed at Plymouth Rock in1620. Now, if illegal immigrants come and settle, do they have the right to determine who else is legal or not? And were there not people already here, and lots of them? Read 1491 to find the answer.

    We are a nation of immigrants. The world is a planet of migrating people. You cannot stop migration, not with laws, and not with walls.

    Tim Kaine went to a naturalization ceremony and thanked the people there for choosing America as their future home. What a different reaction than kicking them out and building a wall.

    You mark my words, gentlemen. Trump is almost there, because Obama is not listening, and so ISIL is progressing. While Democrat diplomats keep violating the law, keeping people's money for visas with discrimination and fraud, and banning Senior American citizens from entering the American, OUR, Embassy in Buenos Aires, the pressure keeps building up. You don’t fix an issue by hiding the garbage under the mat, ignoring it. It only makes it worse and worse…

    And, even if Trump doesn?t win, he will have a lot of power in the Congress.
