Activist: ‘Russia-gate’ is a diversion

POULSBO — Paul Glumaz stood under an umbrella, trying to beat the heat while talking about topics that were even hotter — national politics — outside of the Poulsbo Post Office Aug. 9.

“We are trying to defeat the coup that is being run against the President,” he said.

Glumaz, a one-time Democratic Party candidates for Congress, said 2016 was the first presidential election in which he voted for a Republican candidate.

“It wasn’t so much that I love Trump,” he said. “But I was frightened by the things Hillary [Clinton] said, and her demeanor.”

Glumaz is an activist for the LaRouche movement founded by Lyndson LaRouche, the economic forecaster, political activist and eight-time candidate for the presidency (as a Labor Party and Democratic Party candidate).

“We are not the Republican Party,” Glumaz said, standing next to a sign that read, “Russia-gate Is a Fraud. Stop the Coup Against the Trump Presidency.”

“We believe the forces that want to remove Trump want to get into an extended war with Russia and China,” he said.

In addition, Great Britain is burying America under predatory economic politics.

“These are critical times,” he said. “The fate of our nation is being determined.”

Glumaz said he didn’t feel threatened by the president’s heated words to North Korea Aug. 7, but felt more threatened by “what he might do under certain circumstances.”

He believes the demonization of Trump is polarizing America, while “there’s a lot of pressure from the right wing to force Trump to do something about Korea.

“The situation cannot be cured over night or in a few days, but this is dangerous rhetoric.”
