There’s currently a lot of talk of how the Russians want to sway the upcoming American elections. The White House, Democrat Party, and their Presidential Candidate, have blamed the Russians for hacking their servers and releasing their emails even though they have no proof. Its worthy to note that no one has denied that the emails are accurate. They only claim we should not accept Russian intervention. CNN even went so far as to call it the new “Russian Scare“. Yes, that term comes from the height of the Cold War.
The American Media is fascinated with how Vladimir Putin APPEARS to support Donald Trump. They blame the Russians for attempting to undermine US Democracy. Of course, they seemingly forget that they are part of Administration, that thought they could work with Russia. They were confronted with “The Russian Reset“, The Crimea Occupation (US/NATO Treaty to defend Ukraine be damned), and the “Russian support of the Syrian government”… ‘even after President Obama gave a Red Line. All of this is after the The Obama Administration withdrew plans to put Anti-Ballistic Missiles in Romania and Poland; in an attempt to foster peace with Russia.
All-in-all, America got punked; by which I mean, Obama got punked! Yes, Putin is a Bully. But, so is Obama… ‘and every weak, school boy knows, that bullies rarely fight each other! They only target those who are weaker than they.
And then, there’s Trump
Hillary Clinton and her talking heads are quick to point out that Putin likes Trump, after Putin responded in a Q & A session in Moscow that Trump “Is the absolute leader in the Presidential election“. They surmise that because of that, Trump must be a dictator as well. That they are two peas in a pod! Yes, it’s pretty ridiculous, but it’s all Hillary’s people have! It’s a Hail Mary that might have worked in the past, against a less confident, and less transparent (direct) candidate that fights back against those who attack him. But let’s, for the sake of argument, assume Putin was signaling that he might support a candidate Trump. Why would he do that? The answer is easy and is based upon tenants of Military Deception. Putin understands that all war, and by extension, politics, is Deception.
Putin MIGHT foist complements at Trump because the statements are true… or he may be suspecting that his words would be construed as support to Trump. Putin knows that his support may be unpopular because Putin is smarter and more strategically aware, and educated than Obama, or Hillary. He understands the ramifications of his “appearing” to support a US Candidate who would become his OPPOSITION. Putin, a trained Military Strategist, and former KGB Operative, would speak positively about his larger threat. He would praise Trump, thinking he might drive some votes away from Trump. If he wanted Hillary to win, he would either ignore her, say nothing, or say something negative. Currently, he’s ignoring her… Treating her as though she is garbage. Has he said anything positive about Secretary Of State Clinton? Kerry? ‘or Obama??? That’s because he has little respect for them.
A strong leader, which is what Putin is (like it or not), wants to deal with weak people. He’s picked who he wants to be the next US President. ‘And that is Hillary Clinton. If the Russian Reset has taught us anything, it is that Putin does not respect any of Americas current leaders.
He will not support Hillary because any support may weaken her odds of becoming President. ‘And he wants to deal with people who will NOT confront him, call him on his actions, and definitely not take actions, either overt, or covert against him. Do YOU believe Putin would be more likely to manipulate, and push around a President Hillary Clinton? Or a President Donald Trump?
