I predicted that the 2020 Dem will run on an Obamaesque platform of restoring relations with Russia.
After 2 years of screeching accusations of treason, cartoons of Trump as a Russian puppet, House Dems vows to undermine our national defense against Russia.
Democrats preparing to take over the House are aiming to roll back what they see as President Donald Trump's overly aggressive nuclear strategy.
Their goals include eliminating money for Trump’s planned expansion of the U.S. atomic arsenal, including a new long-range ballistic missile and development of a smaller, battlefield nuclear bomb that critics say is more likely to be used in combat than a traditional nuke.
They also want to stymie the administration's efforts to unravel arms control pacts with Russia.
Of course they will.
The Democrats were never opposed to Russia. They were and are against America.
The transparently fake news accusations of treason and collusion with Russia were a vehicle for undermining America. And once in power the Dems will once again collude with Russia to undermine America.
Meanwhile they're all rushing to unreel their spiel in front of the Iran Lobby.
Leading the charge is Rep. Adam Smith of Washington state, who is set to become the first progressive in decades to run the House Armed Services Committee, which is responsible for setting defense policy through the annual National Defense Authorization Act.
"The rationale for the triad I don't think exists anymore. The rationale for the numbers of nuclear weapons doesn't exist anymore," Smith told the Ploughshares Fund, a disarmament group, at a recent gathering of the Democratic Party's nuclear policy establishment.
Except for Iran, whose nukes Ploughshares backed.
"I have never seen a chairman give nuclear policy such a high priority, have such personal expertise in the area, and be so committed to dramatic change," said Joe Cirincione, president of Ploughshares Fund.
Cirincione served as a staffer to then-Rep. Les Aspin (D-Wis.), who chaired the panel during the fierce debates over nuclear weapons policies in the 1980s, which he sees as an instructive period for today.
Iran Firsters do good work undermining America.
“There’s no such thing as a low-yield nuclear war," said Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), one of the co-sponsors, who also gave his pitch at the Ploughshares Fund gathering this month. "Use of any nuclear weapon, regardless of its killing power, could be catastrophically destabilizing."
Ploughshares and the people behind it got the House. And that means the House now advocates for America's enemies while dismantling our national defense infrastructure. Also known as the Carter/Clinton/Obama policy.
