CLEVELAND, OH – I’ve been in candidate debates where the moderator was doing their worst to suppress my performance like Bruce Martin did in East Cleveland in 2005 when I campaigned successfully for mayor. He even said my time was up “early” as he tried his best to cut off an answer that showed the unpreparedness of his candidate, Gladys Walcott.
I was in the same position as President Donald Trump,as someone who’d never held elected office, competing against someone who’d been in office for a dozen years. I thought of him and that debate when I observed Russian American moderator Chris Wallace; and agreed with Trump that the FOX News host was helping career politician Joe Biden. Like the audience in the room during my debate: everyone saw it. I shredded my opponents with 84 percent of the vote.
Trump made specific reference to the Logan Act and Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and his receipt of a bribe from the mayor of Moscow in comparison to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of Paul Manafort, Rick Gates and others. New York U.S. Attorney Dana Boente said last year the Logan Act and Espionage Act were tools the U.S. Department of Justice intended to keep in its prosecutorial toolbox; and the “memories” of the violators were on full display in the city where the initial investigation of Russian interference in our elections began in 2016 during the Republican National Convention.
Wallace didn’t touch the “Moscow” reference Trump made to the bribe Biden’s son took, or his reference to the Logan Act, as his July 16, 2018 interview with the President of the Russian Federation, and delivering him a “national defense secret,” is a prime example of the law being violated.
Wallace’s mother, father and their parents are all Russian immigrants or children and grandchildren of Russian immigrants. You know them as NBC journalist Mike Wallace or “Wallik” and NBC producer Norma Kaplan or Kaphan as the name her father, Ludvig Kaphan, used when he immigrated here at 5 in 1891.
Their presence may or may not be legal based on the Chinese Exclusion acts and Emergency Immigration Quota Acts that were enacted between 1892 and 1929. For some reason a conversation like this is not supposed to be “politically correct” when discussing who may or may not be selling out their fellow American citizens to violent foreign interests.
Like another son of a Russian immigrant who entered the nation under a fake name, Bernie (Gitman) Sanders, Wallace travelled to “Mother Russia” to meet with President Vladmir Putin in 2018 under the guise of conducting an “interview.” Journalists are not officials of the U.S. government authorized to meet with the officials of foreign governments or deliver them information under the Espionage Act codified as Title 18 of the United States Code under Chapter 37; sections 791 through 799 inclusively.
Wallace can claim the interaction with Putin and deliverance of national defense secrets was connected to his “occupation” at FOX, but this is the U.S. and not Israel; and Israel’s “Basic Laws” as a nation without a constitution that says its people can engage in any occupation anway they want does not apply here. Being a journalist doesn’t give any citizen “extra” rights to violate laws under the 1st Amendment or any section of the Bill of Rights.
In his FOX interview with Putin in 2018 for his Australian and Communist Chinese-connected employer, Wallace possessed a copy of the report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller; and gave the official document of the United States government, one of its national defense secrets, to the Communist government official.
Wallace asked him questions about the official U.S. government document and delivered his answer, as propaganda, to the citizens of the United States of America. The “communication” about the nation’s national defense secret and the Putin meeting violated the Logan Act. The unpatriotic FOX employee also violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act by not registering as a propaganda agent of the Russian government.
Wallace, additionally, committed an act of treason by delivering Putin the secrets Mueller identified in his special report about the elections his 12 military intelligence agents in the GRU or “General Staff” tampered with when they created the Internet Research Agency. The indictment of the 12 Russian agents, Putin’s government has not delivered for trial, accused several intelligence units of engaging “in cyber operations that involved the staged releases of documents stolen through computer intrusions.”
What’s particularly important is the identity of Wallace’s employer. FOX is owned by Australian Rupert Murdoch; a close Putin friend. Putin and Wendy Deng, a Communist Chinese woman, were alleged to have dated. Deng is Murdoch’s ex-wife. Murdoch was also in on the December 2016 $11.4 billion Rosneft sale after Trump won the presidency. Christopher Steele shared that the late Marc Rich’s Glencore handled the transaction. I met Rich’s widow, Denise, at a party in the Hampton’s.
Anyone who saw the first Communist Chinese Jackie Chan film “Rush Hour,” with Chris Tucker, will remember the the Asian influence on the Australian and Negro characters in the film shot in Hong Kong. China from Australia is the distance between New York and California. About 800 miles from Communist-influenced and purge-minded Indonesia. There are 26 million Australians compared to over 1 billion Communist Chinese within “fucking” range of each other like Murdoch and Deng. About 5 percent of Australians who are “white” are mixed with Chinese blood.
Agriculturally, Australia’s land is so unfertile they can’t eat without Communist China’s food. They’re also so outnumbered they’ve already been taken over by China’s purchase of millions of acres of its infrastructure. There’s nothing the outnumbered Australians can do about it as neighbors of Indonesia, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea.
The Logan Act of 1917 was enacted by Congress and signed by President Woodrow Wilson with the specific intent of making it a federal crime for “anyone” but an “authorized” official of the U.S. government to communicate with another nation’s government officials for any reason. It came during a time when Russian Bolshevik Communists were engaged in a series of violent “Red Summers” that tore up 40 U.S. cities and resulted in hundreds of U.S. deaths, assaults, vandalism and looting. Trump referenced 40 “hit” U.S. cities during the Red Summer II rerun of 2019-2020.
These Russian and Eastern European Bolshevik anarchists had plotted over 300 cowardly assassinations of politicians, industrialists and social commentators who opposed them as their plans were discovered by U.S. Attorney General Alexander Mitchell Palmer and FBI Special Agent John Edgar Hoover. 4500 illegal Russian and Eastern European immigrant anarchists were rounded up.
240 were deported aboard the USS Buford in 1919 and the immigration quota acts became constant limits on the legal immigration of Russians to the nation. The Ku Klux Klan organized large chapters in Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Indiana in the same manner as the “Proud Boys” to handle the local community containment of anarchist violence.
I heard Trump say two words in reference to Biden’s defense of his son’s bribe money from the Moscow mayor. “You’ll see.” If Wallace or Wallik, as his father’s real Russian surname identifies him, fully understood the conversation Trump was having in a “statutory” light; he’d have seen in the acts he identified in connection with the Biden’s as a pattern of criminal behavior.
He said Biden’s son, Hunter not Bo, was kicked out of the U.S. Navy after he tested positive for cocaine. All true. Crack to be specific. He looks like a fiend. Trump said Biden’s son didn’t have a job until his father became Barack Obama’s vice president. True again.
The Burisma claim is true. The Moscow bribe money is true. The baby with the stripper is true. Biden’s kids reflect the family values of a man who stole another man’s Russian wife for himself. Even Biden’s running mate’s husband is Russian; and her values appear to be the equivalent of his as she humiliated Willie Brown’s wife in public.
Even the selection of Cleveland, where Trump initially got in trouble over the Russian shit, was a strange choice for the debate; but for the fact it’s a shitty-run Democratic city he can use as an example of loser leaders for the rest of the campaign. It looks like a return to the scene of an international crime against him.
Barbara Snyder, as Case Western Reserve University’s outgoing president, welcomed the audience. The university’s foreign enrollment this year is a despicable 56 percent. The Soviet-controlled and influenced Cleveland Clinic hired a Croatian immigrant, Tomislav Mihaljevic, to serve as its chief executive officer.
The Egyptians accused that hospital’s staff of medically assassinating its former vice president and spy boss, Omar Suleiman, in June 2012 while he was in the nation for tests for amyliodosis. It makes me wonder if part of Trump’s presence here was to gather intelligence.
There’s Russian inteference in the U.S. elections both abroad and internally. There’s Chinese interference in the U.S. elections both aboard and internally. The secure election is one where voters go to the polls and neighbors can challenge who’s one of them and who’s not.
It’s one where “poll watchers” watch the pollworkers in Russian-controlled and influenced “local” precincts and elections boards across the nation; and where anarchists infiltrated inside the Democratic party’s poll working and precinct apparatus have the final say in some states whether the ballots are counted or tossed.
I know every criminal at the elections board here in Cuyahoga by unprosecuted deed. I know Basheer Jones doesn’t live in Cleveland, received $6000 in donations between Russian Americans Milton Maltz and Tim Wuliger; and none were prosecuted for the election law violation. Local “Russian” interference in an election comes in all ways beyond what’s in existence at the national level. It all starts at home.
Wallace was not only a lousy choice for a moderator: he was a conflicted choice as an Espionage and Logan Act violator for his interview with Putin.
Wallace opened the debate in Cleveland by saying he’d prepared the questions, without help, and none were shared with the candidates or their campaigns in advance. That didn’t happen with his Putin interview.
The thought he sought but failed to convey was the questions from his research were so pointedly -specific that the answers to them were not going to be leaked to give one side or the other an advantage.
What Wallace delivered in his “top secret” questions to Trump and Biden is nothing. Greenhouse gases? Paris accord? Race relations in the broadest sense, and Biden’s answer was anti-semitism is wrong, and I was like “oh give me a break. What’s up with all this we love Russians so much shit in the United States of America?” Oh. Joe’s wife’s Russian. I forgot. Of course she talked to him before the debate. Kamala Harris’ husband is also Russian and with an office in Moscow. Russian influence, internally, is a domestic problem.
The duties of the president’s job are found in the U.S. Constitution, United States Code and U.S. Code of Federal Regulations. All free and available online. The federal government is funded by tax dollars and comes with a budget. Annually the different agencies of the U.S. government are audited and reports are shared with Congress.
Trump in his official capacity as president, has a White House website full of his executive orders, speeches; and a PACER search will reveal the litigation his administration has filed or defended since his term in office. Biden’s records are in the National Archives.
Wallace’s questions appear to have come from FOX News headlines and his own personal interests. It might have been his gift to Putin as a “thank you” for the 2018 interview. Why anyone thinks it’s a good idea to let moderators who have never held an elected or appointed public office interview candidates for elected offices with duties defined by laws they haven’t read is a mystery. But here was Wallace debating with Trump instead of shutting up and letting him and Biden go at it during the first chance Americans got to see the two together in Cleveland.
As someone who has campaigned for and won an elected office, I’ve done the debate thing like Trump and Biden with “journalists” whose questions, like Wallace’s, have nothing to do with the job. I don’t remember the questions Rick Walker asked me on behalf of the City Club during my campaign for Cleveland mayor in 2017. I guarantee he did not study Cleveland’s charter, ordinances, Title 7 of the Revised Code of Ohio or read the city’s budget, state audits and state auditor’s management letters as his guide.
I have no expectation that the next debate’s moderators will prepare themselves better than Wallace did; and actually spend some time studying the job. I think all will have an “agenda” that is not designed to encourage patriotism and confidence in this nation’s elections.
The best question was one Wallace asked that got an answer from Trump I thought as an ex-mayor he should have further explored had he understood it.
The discussion of the California fires brought a Trump insight that the solution was in “forestry management.” All I could think of was Forest Hill Park in East Cleveland that John D. Rockefeller owned and lived in as he became the world’s first billionaire. I walked every inch of it and his answer about the amount of dead trees all over California’s parks was something I’d never heard a president ever say; but I knew he was right and his answer was brilliantly insightful.
When I took office on January 1, 2006, Rockefeller’s old 288 acre estate had not been maintained in years. The grass during the spring months had hit over 7 feet tall. Deer roamed the park and so did foxes, wild turkeys and other animals that were not normal to the area.
We’d relocated to the city in 1969, so I’d seen the park when it was pristine and then subsequently ravaged. An ex-mayor from Nigeria used it to dump dead trees the city removed from the streets. Independence Excavating dumped construction debris the DeGeronimo’s moved from University Circle construction sites in the early 2000’s.
The rotting trees and tall grass would catch on fire. The animals that weren’t natural to an area so densely-urban started killing off animals that were. The extra vegetation created extra ragweed that for some made the air, especially for asthmatics, difficult to breathe.
What it appears Trump was trying to explain to Wallace – in terms so clear he did could not understand them – was that even the greenhouse gas problem, like the California forest fire problem or East Cleveland’s park problem, could be corrected by “forestry management.”
It’s why Trump could ask Biden, as the ex-vice president spoke of problems that had existed during his time with Barack Obama and in the U.S. Congress, 47 years in all, “why didn’t you do something about it?” The fires in California occurred during all 47 years of Biden’s presence in Congress; and his answers to questions weren’t answers but a memorized stump speech.
Had Wallace not been operating on an agenda, he might have used his contacts with former presidents to ask them questions about the job that are so specific that only a person who has held it or been close to it would know. The “forestry management” answer could have come from any of the past presidents if they’ve been paying attention.
Questions like that would have generated a higher level of discussion between two experienced men both in business and government. Such questions would have elevated those of us who were forced to suffer the ridiculous ones born from Wallace’s over-inflated sense of knowledge he doesn’t possess about the job of President of the United States of America.
I’ve seen debates since President John F. Kennedy debated President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s vice president, Richard Nixon in 1960. I’ve never seen a moderator so uninformed and poorly-prepared.
Americans were robbed. All I saw was an idiot journalist who’d never even been elected to the job of a precinct committeeman looking stupid as he tried to argue with the President of the United States of America. I wouldn’t expect anything less than from a grandchild of Russian immigrants whose ancestral nation’s rulers are interfering “internally” in U.S. elections so that they’re in the position to take ours over from “within.”
Five Russian Americans just campaigned for U.S. President. 33 serve in the U.S. Congress. 12 in the U.S. Senate and 21 in the U.S. House of Representatives. Trump can forget me taking a vaccine created by the Russian leading Johnson & Johnson. He also leads the manufacture of fentanyl that’s been killing Americans all over the nation. They’re 1.6 percent of the U.S. population and not all legally.
Yes. There is “internal” Russian influence inside the U.S. that is intefering not only with this nation’s elections, but in every other area of American life. This is the “Communist agenda” the President of the United States of America “appears” to be fighting. Wallace’s presence appears to be disruptively-intentional and undermining.
