Democrats’ Sordid History of Helping Russia Infiltrate American Politics
The aftermath of president Trump meeting in Helsinki with Russian president Putin caused the “Deranged Dems” to make pathological accusations against him.
The left refers to the meeting as nothing short “treasonous.” Next, they claim that the meeting in and of itself is irrefutable proof that Trump colluded with the Russians and has undoubtedly sold our country out to them.
But would it be a shock to any American to learn that the Democrats have been smearing their Republican counterparts with the same insane accusations for decades?
Like when late Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy schemed against President Ronald Reagan.
Trending: Another Media Giant Bows to Leftism
This eye-opening KGB document on Ted Kennedy is dated May 14, 1983. It comes straight from the Central Committee archives of the former USSR.
Author Paul Kengor wrote extensively about the incident:
It was a May 14, 1983 letter from the head of the KGB, Viktor Chebrikov, to the head of the USSR, the odious Yuri Andropov, with the highest level of classification. Chebrikov relayed to Andropov an offer from Senator Ted Kennedy, presented by Kennedy’s old friend and law-school buddy, John Tunney, a former Democratic senator from California, to reach out to the Soviet leadership at the height of a very hot time in the Cold War. According to Chebrikov, Kennedy was deeply troubled by the deteriorating relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union, which he believed was bringing us perilously close to nuclear confrontation. Kennedy, according to Chebrikov, blamed this situation not on the Soviet leadership but on the American president—Ronald Reagan. Not only was the USSR not to blame, but, said Chebrikov, Kennedy was, quite the contrary, “very impressed” with Andropov.
The thrust of the letter is that Reagan had to be stopped, meaning his alleged aggressive defense policies, which then ranged from the Pershing IIs to the MX to SDI, and even his re-election bid, needed to be stopped. It was Ronald Reagan who was the hindrance to peace. That view of Reagan is consistent with things that Kennedy said and wrote at the time, including articles in sources like Rolling Stone (March 1984) and in a speeches like his March 24, 1983 remarks on the Senate floor the day after Reagan’s SDI speech, which he lambasted as “misleading Red-Scare tactics and reckless Star Wars schemes.”
Does any of this sound familiar to you?
Democrats are known for their retread of tactics. And the attack on President Trump by attempting to tie him to the mean Ruskies is little more than a “dust off” of the Kennedy gambit.
The story continues:
Even more interesting than Kennedy’s diagnosis was the prescription: According to Chebrikov, Kennedy suggested a number of PR moves to help the Soviets in terms of their public image with the American public. He reportedly believed that the Soviet problem was a communication problem, resulting from an inability to counter Reagan’s (not the USSR’s) “propaganda.” If only Americans could get through Reagan’s smokescreen and hear the Soviets’ peaceful intentions.
So, there was a plan, or at least a suggested plan, to hook up Andropov and other senior apparatchiks with the American media, where they could better present their message and make their case. Specifically, the names of Walter Cronkite and Barbara Walters are mentioned in the document. Also, Kennedy himself would travel to Moscow to meet with the dictator.
So, here we have evidence of a long-standing determination within the American Democratic Party to smear their opponents whose policies disrupt their side deals with Russia.
Democrats deceive our citizens with no consequences.
“Why is the American left so interested in helping Russia with the hostility they represent to the world?” Could it be that Russia has been allowed to get to this place of aggression because America’s left helped them get there?

Consider what about in March 2012 when Obama promised then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he would have more “flexibility” on missile defense after being reelected?

And there are many more examples where these came from. The Democrats are friends of the Kremlin and have been for many years. They always have been and always will be.
It is time for our nation to start calling them out for their deception!
