@RadioFreeTom  As a Soviet child of the 1970's raised on the periphery of nomenklatura (we were Jews but my grandfather was very high up in Army command) I cannot tell you how right you are. 100% accurate.

“Every single president who has come into office since the collapse of the Soviet Union has had this difficulty in trying to figure out ‘what do we do with Russia?’” Fiona Hill of @BrookingsInst  is @annemcelvoy ’s latest guest on “The Economist Asks”

In the Soviet Union, competent bureaucrats were eliminated if their truth-telling embarrassed the Leader. Trump is creating the same kind of dysfunctional loyalty cult in Washington, DC, right before our eyes. And no one is stopping him.

I can tell you all this for sure- whatever ridiculous propaganda we were fed in then Czechoslovakia, which was mandated by Soviet Union- pales next to the lies being told and repeated by trump and his ilk. I am not kidding… trump truly trumps the communists. And that’s not easy

I covered the Soviet Union and its face off with American democracy. To liken this impeachment inquiry to Soviet tactics is to make a mockery of all who stood up for justice, accountability and the rule of law during the Cold War - including many, many Republicans.

Bernie honeymooned in the Soviet Union during the Cold War and thinks people lining up in bread lines “is a good thing” about socialism. He literally wants the US to become the USSR. But Trump is the Russian agent. ???‍♂️

Bread lines...televised Cabinet flattery sessions...centrally-planned economic industrial policy: Under Republican leadership, the US is turning into Republicans’ scariest 30-year-old Soviet fever dreams.

That a president of the United States would characterize the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan as a positive is flat wrong and deeply troubling.

Narratives that just died: -- African Americans won't turn out -- Trump's formidable last minute entry will swing election -- Pro-choice stance doomed Jones -- Bannon's use of Nazi/Soviet propaganda techniques was fiendishly brilliant
