Thieves, Knaves and Traitors

That just about covers the complete range of personality traits that occupy positions of leadership in the US government today. Seems every time you turn around some POS is cutting out off another slab of America and giving it away. There's no doubt about it; this is a pressure play to extort money from American businessmen only to see if they can out bid Russian bribes.
WASHINGTON — In the view of America’s spy services, the next potential threat from Russia may not come from a nefarious cyberweapon or secrets gleaned from the files of Edward J. Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor now in Moscow.

Instead, this menace may come in the form of a seemingly innocuous dome-topped antenna perched atop an electronics-packed building surrounded by a security fence somewhere in the United States.

In recent months, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Pentagon have been quietly waging a campaign to stop the State Department from allowing Roscosmos, the Russian space agency, to build about half a dozen of these structures, known as monitor stations, on United States soil, several American officials said.

[...] Russia’s efforts have also stirred concerns on Capitol Hill, where members of the intelligence and armed services committees view Moscow’s global positioning network — known as Glonass, for Global Navigation Satellite System — with deep suspicion and are demanding answers from the administration.

“I would like to understand why the United States would be interested in enabling a GPS competitor, like Russian Glonass, when the world’s reliance on GPS is a clear advantage to the United States on multiple levels,” said Representative Mike D. Rogers, Republican of Alabama, the chairman of a House Armed Services subcommittee.
That catsup chooming son of a traitorous bitch we have as SecState needs to have a GPS satellite shoved up his ass. Then we throw both his ass and his bullshit medals into prison.

Oh brother! The level of treasonous stupidity implicit in this is mind boggling.

No person in their right mind would believe the Russkis will limit their activities to GPS tracking. Look no further than the Cold War when Soviet "fishing trawlers" coincidentally cruised the waters off Rota, Spain, the Irish Sea and Guam. What did all three of these areas have in common? They were the departure points for our FBM submarines to go on deterrent patrols. Purely coincidental as I've already said. Gotta follow the fish.

The fact that those ships were equipped with the latest in sonar tracking technology was another "coincidental" fact, after all they needed it to do their job right? Right?

Yeah, they did their job and the more things change the more they stay the same.

Subvet - how about Russian trawlers using lasers to blind the crews of American surveillance aircraft that patrol our coasts? Happened several times off the coast of Alaska.

All of them would sell out America in its entirety for far too little.
Throw in a bunch of congress.

Sig94, I seem to recall that also. Stinking bastards. But at least the Russkis could claim they were doing it out of patriotism, the Americans aiding them were a lower form of life. Unlike their counterparts behind the Iron Curtain it became a truism that Americans who sold out to the Commies weren't motivated by ideology, just greed. John Anthony Walker (not to be confused with John Walker Lindh) was a prime example of that.

What is so aggravating is the acts of traitors used to be committed covertly, now they're so blatantly out in the open it's enough to make a man scream. Sooner or later the shit will hit the fan and when the dust clears either patriotic Christians or their secularist One World adversaries will be history. But no matter who wins the nation will be unalterably changed. Just MHO.

Subvet - I certainly feel the same way. We are heading for a showdown.
