Ronald Reagan’s Son: Democrats Conspired with Soviets in Attempts to Defeat My Father


Michael-and-Ronald-Reagan

When you consider the power that the president has, you'd have to be really naive to think that the elections are untainted by subterfuge or nefarious actions.  After all, the saying often attributed to Chicago, “Vote early and vote often,” undoubtedly has some basis in truth.  And some of the reviews of the balloting in the 2016 election found some ballots counted multiple times.  An accident?  Maybe.  Enough to change the vote?  Virtually impossible.

Let's go back to the era of Ronald Reagan for a look at what real manipulation of the vote by Russia in collusion with Democratic operatives in the US looks like.  Writes Michael Reagan,

When my father, Ronald Reagan, was president, Democrat politicians secretly connived with the Soviets in failed attempts to manipulate elections and defeat Ronald Reagan. Former intelligence officer Herbert Romerstein dug through the Soviet archives after the fall of the USSR and uncovered secret documents written by KGB agent Victor Chebrikov. The documents revealed that Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy had sent a friend, former Senator John Tunney of California, to contact the KGB. Tunney’s mission: undermine then-President Jimmy Carter.

On March 5, 1980, as Kennedy was challenging Carter in the primaries, Tunney met with the KGB and urged the Soviets to sabotage Carter’s foreign policy efforts. It’s amazing: Two high-ranking Democrats — a sitting U.S. senator and a former senator — sought Soviet help in undermining American foreign policy and manipulating an American election.

One 1980 document stated that Kennedy offered to condemn President Carter’s policy toward the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan in exchange for KGB help. News accounts of that period prove that Kennedy did, in fact, openly criticize Carter’s Afghanistan policy.

So what we see here was Democrats using Russian operatives to attack fellow Democrats.  Not a very honorable bunch, were they?  Even Jimmy Carter gave in to the urge to ask Russia for help in defeating Ronald Reagan.

Even more amazing: President Carter himself was also willing to jump into bed with the Soviets. In the closing days of the 1980 presidential campaign, while trailing Ronald Reagan in the polls, Jimmy Carter sent a political ally, industrialist Armand Hammer, to a secret meeting with Soviet ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin at the embassy in Washington. Hammer asked the Soviets to help Carter win votes in key states by allowing Jewish “refuseniks” to emigrate to Israel. The Soviets rejected Hammer’s request.

In January 1984, former President Carter approached Ambassador Dobrynin in person. Carter wanted to derail President Reagan’s defense buildup, and asked for help from the Evil Empire in unseating President Reagan. It’s not clear if the Soviets gave Carter what he wanted.

What we have today are unsubstantiated allegations that Russia may have hacked the DNC and RNC, using WikiLeaks to unload only the DNC dirt onto the American public.  Note what we do not have.  We do not have Donald Trump nor the RNC implicated in this theoretical event.  We do not have Donald Trump or the RNC being accused of enlisting Russian help with the election.  We do not have claims that the emails released by WikiLeaks were not true.

Note the very different behavior of Mr. Kennedy and Mr. Carter as documented in government records.

None of this is meant to be supportive of foreign entities meddling in our elections, nor of the US meddling in the elections of other nations. That said, this would be a great time for the Democrats to just shut up.
