Well, this has certainly been an interesting 24 hours.

There is so much talk about this that I am not going to recount all the details here.  I just want to note that Michael Flynn is the third high level Trump associate to have to be disappeared because of ties to and payoffs from the Russians, the others being former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Carter Page.

I don't recall any President in history to have people in this position forced out because of ties to a hostile foreign government.  And Trump, only three weeks into his Presidency, now has three.  Is there anyone on earth naive enough to believe that Trump himself is not involved in this treasonous relationship with Russia?

Well, that's it.  The problem is that the American people have been so propagandized all of their lives to believe that our form of government is immune to corruption and betrayal on this level, that most Americans cannot emotionally process what is going on right in front of their eyes.  And with Congressional Republicans doing everything they can to misdirect attention from this abomination, who knows where this will end up?  Of course, the most cynical of us, I suspect (a category in which I include myself,) never imagined that the Trump administration could sink so far in just three weeks.  Who can say what our country will look like, even a month from now?
