The scum of the earth I believe? The bloody assassin of the workers I presume?
Putin just can not believe his luck can he? Look at the glee in his eyes as he meets this orange carnival of ignorance. I never thought I’d see the day when the President of the United States of America sided with the Russians?!?
Trump’s bewildering performance with Putin is only credible IF Trump…
a) Is utterly compromised by Putin
b) Utterly believes his own Military Industrial Complex and Deep State create the conflict around the world for corporate gain
…both of these things could be true.
Personally I think blaming Russia for ‘hacking’ the US Election is deeply counter productive.
Firstly, it’s just outrageous that the Americans who have committed coups, electoral fraud and mass deceptions on 81 other nations over the years are in any position to lecture or complain about interfering in other peoples elections.
Secondly, it allows the Democrats off the hook. Instead of acknowledging they ran a terrible candidate and fielded neoliberal policies that hurt the very workers they had simply assumed would vote for them, the Democrats can avoid scrutiny of their own rigged primary process, the manner in which Bernie Sanders was unfairly treated and their hollow policies by blaming it all on Russia.
Newsflash to the Democrats – Trump didn’t win because of Russia, he won because you failed to appreciate how your embrace of neoliberal globalisation hurt the very voters you needed the most.
One estimate puts the budget of Russian interference in the election via social media advertising at $250 000. With all due respect for American Democracy, if you can influence an election with a mere $250 000, you have way bigger problems than Putin.
Put into perspective as well that Putin’s aggression with Crimea and the Ukraine are counter moves by a Russia concerned with NATO encroachment.
Putin’s Russia is an authoritarian regime that brutally keeps in line its Oligarch Gangsters like a Mafia state while espousing some appalling homophobia that has become almost a national past time. I’m no fan of Putin, he is a cold calculating feudal lord, but I also don’t allow American propaganda make me believe he is the centre of all that is evil in the world.
I agree that the US and Russia need far better relations but that can’t occur if the President of the United States is compromised or just too stupid to appreciate the geopolitics at play.
Right now a large group of American Industrialists and Military Intelligence Chiefs will be in a dark room somewhere arguing the pros and cons of assassinating Trump.
