70 Republican ‘Turncoats’ Post Anti-Trump Letter To Nation. They Subvert Democracy

Turncoat: a person who deserts one party or cause in order to join an opposing one.

They call themselves 70 Republican former national security officials. I call them turncoats.

On Thursday, as former Vice President Joe Biden accepted the Democratic nomination for President these former senior national security officials – some whom I’ve interviewed in the past – posted their anti-President Donald Trump letter on a website touted as A Project For Defending Democracy.

We are former national security officials who served during the administrations of Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and/or Donald Trump, or as Republican Members of Congress. We are profoundly concerned about the course of our nation under the leadership of Donald Trump. Through his actions and his rhetoric, Trump has demonstrated that he lacks the character and competence to lead this nation and has engaged in corrupt behavior that renders him unfit to serve as President.

In no way are these alleged Republicans defending Democracy. I can prove it. They are only defending the establishment and a swamp in Washington D.C. that has given them power, connections and wealth.

They say they are Republicans but don’t be fooled or lied to. The 2016 election by the American people of President Trump took them all by surprise. Trump’s instinct not to be manipulated by these pompous turncoats’ elitist actions has infuriated them. They’ve been able to get away with manipulating the system for their own personal benefit for decades and now under Trump, they can no longer do it. Nor can they pretend to be any different than their Democratic colleagues.

At least the Democrats let Americans know exactly what they stand for but not these turncoats. They hide behind the camouflage of the Republican Party but they are nothing more than modern day Benedict Arnolds.

More importantly, the election of 2016 exposed the real faces behind these alleged Republicans. They, and many like them in Washington D.C., will say openly that they hate Trump because they care about the sanctity of Democracy.

Remember, again, this is a lie.

If they cared about Democracy and the sanctity of it they would have stood up against the actions of officials in the previous Obama administration to remove a duly elected president from office. They would have demanded justice when members of their own community, like former CIA Director John Brennan, fired FBI Director James Comey, former DNI James Clapper, along with their cohorts, weaponized the intelligence and federal law enforcement communities to remove the president and spy on American citizens.

Still, they call themselves patriots? Patriots aren’t afraid to stand up for the people, put their lives on the line and sacrifice everything to keep the values and principles of our nation’s sacred Constitution safe.

Those 70 so-called Republicans who signed the letter, to include former NSA and CIA Director Michael Hayden, helped propagate programs in our government that have in essence trampled on civil liberties and the freedoms guaranteed to all Americans in the Constitution.

They don’t care about Democracy and they do not care about you. These turncoats only care about themselves.

These former national security officials are also the same liars that have been in government for decades behind the scenes manipulating the system to line their pockets and give their families a status that most Americans will never be allowed to achieve.

It’s a private bureaucratic club with special membership and President Trump’s policies have stood in the way of their desired goals. His policies and decisions run against the grain of what’s been happening in this swamp for decades. Trump’s actions – his disruption of their games – has exposed the ‘turncoats.’

Trump isn’t willing to play ball with these globalist bureaucrats and businesses. That is why for the first time in modern political American history we are witnessing such vitriol hatred of a U.S. President and the willingness of government officials to violate all the principals we hold sacred.

Let’s look at one statement in their letter against Trump:

Donald Trump has gravely damaged America’s role as a world leader. Trump has disgraced America’s global reputation and undermined our nation’s moral and diplomatic influence. He has called NATO “obsolete,” branded Europe a “foe,” mocked the leaders of America’s closest friends, and threatened to terminate longstanding US alliances. Other global leaders, friends and foes alike, view him as unreliable, unstable, and unworthy of respect.

Trump’s staunch policy on NATO is exactly what America needed. His actions produced the most significant changes in forcing the rest of the world to do their part since the rise of the Soviet Union and the Cold War with the United States.

Trump pushed the European members of “NATO set to spend approximately $130 billion more on their own defense in 2020 than they did in 2016. That still leaves a majority of NATO nations spending less than 2 percent of their gross domestic product on defense—the figure that NATO members have pledged to allocate by 2024—but the achievement is still significant,” as stated in Foreign Policy magazine.

​Moreover, Trump has done more to hold China accountable than any president in the past 50 years. He has held the Chinese Communist Party’s feet to the fire and has demanded that they be held accountable for there unfair trade practices, intellectual property theft and overwhelming failure on human rights violations.

Where has Biden been on these issues? Where have these so-called Republican national security officials been on these issues? Crickets, nowhere.

In fact, Biden and his family, like many of these Republicans, have benefited from these corrupt foreign governments by lining their own pockets in deals that have taken jobs away from Americans, while making U.S. corporate leaders some wealthiest on the planet.

I will continue to address many of the other issues discussed in the turncoats letter in the upcoming days and weeks.

We cannot be fooled by these liars any longer. We have to stand up for our nation.

This is bigger than President Trump, it’s about you, the American people who put him in office. That’s what these turncoats are most angry about and that’s why they are working so hard to remove Trump from office.

They don’t want to teach Trump a lesson, they want to teach you a lesson. Don’t let them.

Unsilence yourselves and let them know that you are aware that they are nothing more than turncoats and that their bureaucratic malfeasance is ending.

Cuomo says he’ll ‘fully cooperate’ with NY AG’s review of sexual harassment claims

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said Wednesday that he will “fully cooperate” with the state attorney general’s independent review into sexual harassment allegations made against the currently scandal-ridden governor, saying, “I fully support a woman’s right to come forward.”

Last Wednesday, Lindsey Boylan, who served in his administration for over three years, accused Cuomo of suggesting to her on a 2017 flight that they play strip poker, inappropriate touching, and kissing her on the lips without her consent.

Following Boylan’s accusations, 25-year-old Charlotte Bennett alleged the governor indicated interest in having an affair with her while she was serving in his administration as a health policy adviser. In a Saturday New York Times report, Bennett told the newspaper that Cuomo asked her if she had “ever been with an older man,” adding that “age doesn’t matter” in relationships.

At Wednesday’s press briefing, the Empire State governor addressed the accusations leveled against him over the past seven days by three women and New York Attorney General Letitia James’ (D) independent review into those claims, which she announced on Monday was formally proceeding.

“As you probably know, the attorney general is doing an independent review, and I will fully cooperate with that review,” Cuomo said at the beginning of his statement. “Now, the lawyers say I shouldn’t say anything when you have a pending review until that review is over. I understand that, I’m a lawyer, too. But, I want New Yorkers to hear from me directly on this.”

“First, I fully support a woman’s right to come forward,” the governor began. “And I think it should be encouraged in every way. I now understand that I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable. It was unintentional and I truly and deeply apologize for it. I feel awful about it, and frankly I am embarrassed by it, and that’s not easy to say. But that’s the truth.”

This echoes what Cuomo said in a Sunday statement about the allegations, in which he stated he “may have been insensitive” during his tenure but charged his accusers of misinterpreting his actions, saying, “I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation… I am truly sorry about that.”

During his Wednesday remarks, Cuomo iterated “I never touched anyone inappropriately,” repeated that sentence, then said “I never knew at the time that I was making anyone feel uncomfortable” and repeated that one too.

“And I certainly never, ever meant to offend anyone or hurt anyone or cause anyone any pain. That is the last thing I would ever want to do,” he continued. “I ask the people of this state to wait for the facts from the attorney general’s report before forming an opinion. Get the facts, please, before forming an opinion.”

“I also want you to know that I have learned from what has been an incredibly difficult situation for me as well as other people, and I’ve learned an important lesson,” the governor said at the end of his statement. “I’m sorry. I’m sorry for whatever pain I caused anyone, I never intended it, and I will be the better for this experience.”

Amid Boylan and Bennett’s allegations, another report of Cuomo sexually harassing a woman has cropped up. On Monday, a woman named Anna Ruch accused the governor of placing his hands on her cheeks—without her consent—at a 2019 wedding reception and asking if he could kiss her. A photograph of the two together at the event has also been circulating on social media.

Asked at Wednesday’s briefing about the pictures that have resurfaced of him being touchy with people, particularly that of him and Ruch, the governor claimed that it is his way of greeting people.

“I understand the opinion of—and feelings of—Ms. Ruch,” Cuomo said. “You can find hundreds of pictures of me making the same gesture with hundreds of people—women, children, men, etc. You can go find hundreds of pictures of me kissing people. […] It is my usual and customary way of greeting.”

Moreover, the governor said that his father, former Gov. Mario Cuomo, would do the same thing.

“By the way, it was my father’s way of greeting people,” Cuomo said, explaining, “You’re the governor of the state, you want people to feel comfortable, you want to reach out to them.”

He also mentioned that he kisses and hugs legislators and noted that at an event in Queens the other day he hugged pastors and state assembly members.

Furthermore, the governor said that his intent “doesn’t matter,” saying, “What it matters is if anybody was offended by it.”

“But if they were offended by it, then it was wrong,” he added, going on to say that if they were offended or hurt by it, he apologizes.
