In 1968-69 in Vietnam, it was not uncommon for we soldiers to find enemy caches of weapons with the symbol of Communist Russia (then named the Soviet Union) stamped on the weapon cases. Russia was then, and is now, the enemy of the free world and democracy.

On Nov. 10, 2016, as reported in ALL the major news outlets Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Communist Russia indeed was in communication with the Trump presidential campaign.

“There were contacts,” Interfax cited Ryabkov as saying. “We are doing this and have been doing this during the election campaign.”

On Jan. 6, 2017, ALL the U.S. intelligence agencies said, “We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S. presidential election.

“Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency.

“We further assess Putin and the Russian government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump.”

For all those who thought the communists were going to show up in black helicopters – think again. The communists have invaded via telecommunications and have helped elect a president of the United States of America!

For all the rest of us that love our country and cherish our Democratic system of government, the fox has entered the hen house!
