BREAKING NEWS – PUTIN ANNOUNCES HE SUPPORTS TRUMP
[Image: trump-putin-but-its-more-about-trump.png]


Donald Trump has said that as president he would get along with Vladimir Putin, and there's evidence that the Republican frontrunner's apparent fondness for the Russian strongman is being reciprocated.

Kremlin mouthpiece Konstantin Rykov said Wednesday in a Twitter post that Trump won the first Democratic presidential debate, held Tuesday in Las Vegas. In that tweet, Rykov linked to a Russian language, pro-Trump website with a Russian domain, http://www.Trump2016.ru, that he is likely behind. Until a few weeks ago, Rykov's Twitter home page featured Trump and his 2016 campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again."

Western sources who monitor Russian politics told the Washington Examiner that Rykov is a propagandist arm of the Putin government machine. "Rykov is considered to be one of the leading pro-Kremlin bloggers in Russia," said Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia under President Obama who is now a senior fellow at the conservative Hoover Institution think tank. "As you can see from his Twitter feed, he is very active. And he loves Trump."

Rykov is a media entrepreneur who has worked in Russian media and launched technology firms that are connected to the Kremlin. He has been closely associated with the Russian government under Putin and ex-president Dmitry Medvedev, and served briefly in Russia's parliament. Although his social media activities aren't strictly Kremlin-related, sources say he doesn't contradict Putin, and his online commentary on international politics serve as a reliable indicator of the Russian president's opinions and preferences.

Rykov has created a series of websites, similar to Trump2016.ru, or used his Twitter page to post opinions on international politics. He often promotes rightwing political figures; for instance, he has previous promoted the National Front, a French nationalist political party, and its leaders, Jean-Marie Le Pen, and his daughter, Marine Le Pen. Rykov also uses events to draw favorable comparisons to Kremlin policy, such as likening Scotland's independence movement to Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.

The international political figures that Rykov plays up, said the source, "tend to express views that are more friendly to the Kremlin," at least as far as Moscow is concerned. These figures also tend to be "supportive of engagement" with Russia, if not outright apologists for what others describe as Putin's aggressive foreign policy and repressive measures at home.

Putin has moved to thwart U.S. interests at every turn. His military intervention in Syria to prop up dictator Bashar al-Assad is just the latest example. Russian forces have targeted Syrian rebels aligned with the U.S. in the fight against the Islamic State, and have basically warned Washington not to intervene. Meanwhile, Putin is coordinating its moves with Iran, another regime at odds with the U.S. in the Middle East.

All of this has earned Putin the scorn of the Republicans (and Democrats) running to succeed Obama — except for Trump, who leads most GOP primary polls and ranks first in the Examiner's presidential power rankings.

The New York billionaire businessman and reality television star has tempered his criticism of Putin, who has a stranglehold over Russia's government and media. In various interviews, Trump has either resisted hitting Putin or offered mild critiques while predicting that he would establish a good working relationship with him if he's elected president. In the latest example, Trump declined to blame Russia for the downing of a passenger jetliner over Ukraine despite evidence of Moscow's involvement.

Asked by NBC News correspondent Katy Tur if he would hold Putin accountable if he were president, Trump dodged.

"Well, you know, they say it wasn't them. It may have been their weapon, but they didn't use it, they didn't fire it. They even said the other side fired it to blame them. I mean, to be honest with you, you'll probably never know for sure," he said. "It was probably Russia. It was probably people involved with — on the pro-Russia side. But I think we have to straighten our own problems out right now, Katy. We have some very big problems. And we can get involved in all of these — it's a horrible thing, all those people dying."

In a recent interview with CBS "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson, Trump had this to say about Putin:

"I think the biggest thing we have is that we were on '60 Minutes' together and we had fantastic ratings. One of your best-rated shows in a long time," he said, light-heartedly. "So that was good, right? So we were stable mates."

"I think that I would at the same time get along very well with him. He does not like Obama at all. He doesn't respect Obama at all. And I'm sure that Obama doesn't like him very much," Trump added. "But I think that I would probably get along with him very well. And I don't think you'd be having the kind of problems that you're having right now."

LOL

A smashing job from David M. Drucker of the Washington Examiner. Did he come with this argument himself?

Hopefully, at some point, it becomes safe for Mr. Drucker to reveal the 'sources' of all his speculation about this blogger's link to Putin, as we wouldn't want to be kept in the dark indefinitely.

In the meantime, here's my wild theory about why Russians might prefer Trump over the other candidates:

He doesn't waste every opportunity to speak of the 'need' to confront a nuclear powerhouse like Russia over its foreign policy and actually seems to want to 're-set' U.S. foreign policy in a way that doesn't involve engaging every 'enemy' (militarily or otherwise) that defies its will.

Trump also seems to not be a paid off prostitute of corporate and private campaign contributors, unlike every one of his presidential rivals, both Republican and Democrat.

I realize this is wild speculation on my part, and not the tight journalism of Mr. Drucker per his investigative report on Mr. Trump's link to Russian 'strongman' Vladimir Putin.

RE: BREAKING NEWS – PUTIN ANNOUNCES HE SUPPORTS TRUMP
He probably admires Trump for 'rubbing their faces in it.' while knowing he will never be POTUS, ever.

Tell you what. If Trump really becomes president of The United States in the 2016 elections, I will video myself eating a hat and will upload that video in this thread.

That is a promise I make to you, the American people, that will never come true!

That I promise, and promise it I do!

Cha Cha Cha

America, I will eat my hat to make it great again!

Not sure if I own a hat, but think I have a couple of caps, maybe up to nine of them.

Regardless, I will eat my own hat if Trump really goes for it and becomes POTUS next year. That's a promise!

RE: BREAKING NEWS – PUTIN ANNOUNCES HE SUPPORTS TRUMP
Trump should just buy Russia from Putin. I'm sure Putin would sell out. Who would want to be in charge of that country, after all? They have nothing there as far as I can tell, but Trump might be able to do something with that Godforsaken place….maybe tear down those ugly onion dome buildings in Moscow and build a new Trump golf course in their place. Maybe bring in McDonald's and some American black to work there…heh heh I'd love to see it!

Trump/Putin = win!

Yeltsin had tried that approach when the country was being ripped at the seams by the oligarch barron robbers supported by the U.S. establishment; unfortunately, this period didn't actually improve the lives of average Russians, and was eventually jettisoned in favour of the policies adopted under Putin's reign (that have seen the economic situation in Russia improve by leaps and bounds).

But admittedly, the change of course meant reducing access to the finer delicacies of American life, such as McDonalds Big Macs and large french fries (err, sorry...freedom fries).

Theiy're going to use Putin to go after Trump in a big way. The patridiotic sheeped up masses will eat that shit up.

Something devised by the dark side is going take Trump him down. I hope it's not going to be one of their 3 named wirelessly controlled problem fixers. They will never allow another president who turns out to his own man again. Never.

Yeah, trust me…I wasn't thinking of ways to improve the lives of Russians. I was thinking of ways to improve the lives of Americans. Russia is like an abandoned swimming pool full of leaves. LOL!

RE: BREAKING NEWS – PUTIN ANNOUNCES HE SUPPORTS TRUMP
Quick anecdotal story about Russians…


A few years ago, my wife and I decided to have a garage sale to clear out some of the junk in our attic. When we purchased this house back in 2000, the attic was filled with a bunch of old stuff from the previous owner and we requested that the real-estate people just leave it there and allow us to go through it all, ourselves. Most of the junk ended up being a shit-ton of old ladies' dresses (size 14) from like the 1970's.

So, we put up all the stuff for sale. I think we put a price of 25 CENTS per dress -thinking that maybe some little kids would want to play grown-up or maybe a high school drama class looking for props…or whatever. We had no great expectations on them. They were just filthy junk for fat old ladies as far as we were concerned.

Lo and behold, here comes a beat-to-shit Rambler pulling up and three old ladies and an old man get out and start perusing the stock dresses.

"How much?" one of the ladies asks in a very Russian accent.

"Twenty-five cents.", I answered.

"DIME!" the Russian lady responds.

I looked at my wife and we both started laughing.

"Okay. Sure…A dime is fine."

They looked like they had hit the lottery, man! I'm telling you!

I'm sure they made a big box and sent those dresses back to Russia -where I'm sure they went over as high fashion…LMFAO!

But seriously, I felt bad at the time because it made me realize how fucking bleak that place must still be -even after the collapse of one of their failed attempts at a political system -communism. The whole place just wreaks of failure and poverty and cold, empty desperation.

"DIME!"

LMFAO!!!!

RE: BREAKING NEWS – PUTIN ANNOUNCES HE SUPPORTS TRUMP
^ They don't have to assassinate him. That's outdated and a last resort type of thing. It would cause more problems than it fixes.

In any case it doesn't matter who votes how. What matters is who counts the votes.
