Letter for Tuesday, January 5, 2021

So who is the real Manchurian Candidate?

I assume Richard Morse of Kilauea is equally angry about Trump’s close relationship with Putin/Russia? At least that has firm evidence. Even Trump’s son said before his father was president: Most of our real estate investment money is Russian (American banks stopped lending money to Donald Trump because he usually declared bankruptcy to avoid repaying his loans). The close relationship between Putin and Trump is documented. Note Trump has failed to say anything about the extensive cyber-attack on our government.

Please, editor, try not to inflame with falsehoods, internet gossip, and reconsider whether you should put this kind of letter on the page. I am not in favor of censorship, but this long tirade of speculation/untruths was not good journalism in my humble opinion. Look at the buzzwords designed to stir anger and fear, a clear sign of fabrication.

Look at the timing: just before the predicted wild protests in Washington, DC, on Tuesday to protest the vote. Was that the author’s purpose, to get people to march with their guns on Kaua’i? Legitimate political differences with President Biden/Dems is a good debate, not this.

    Donald Trump is fighting for every thing he can get. The votes that count. Although they have concluded a winner in Joe Biden, Donald Trump still feels relentless to the end to get back his presidency seat. Even though he lost as president. I think that the U.S. relations to China is based on military. I don’t think free trade is in the works. Unless you are buying small items from China. I think it’s only right to point out who might be interested in Chinese relations. Chinese. To say that Chinese people want to move to America would be certainly not accurate. CCP and China holds a strong ties to their way of doing things. Communism. They get what they are paid for and only that portion. It is not like capitalism. Joe Biden’s relations to the Chinese government and the CCP is one of an esoteric measure. Joe Biden is just trying to strengthen U.S.A. to far eastern relations. It does good to humanity. Let us not blow each other up. So minimize the nuclear weapons and we are satisfied. And they having this summit every now and then helps to keep America in the game of shaking the enemies hands. They being communism and everything against God and evil doers so to speak. While America are the good guys. This stems from relations we had back in the 1960s, only it was with Vietnam. And Russia in the cold war. This continues.
