Why would (Ras) Putin target a sure loser like Trump?

By Michael Collins

Former CIA director Michael Morrell claims that Russian President Vladimir Putin controls Donald Trump’s mind.

The new McCarthyism was born when Wikileaks revealed the truth about the leaders of the Democratic Party. The leaked emails showed that the vile Democratic National Committee boss Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her crew of foul-mouthed punks perpetrated election fraud by rigging the Democratic primaries for Hillary Clinton.

What a way to kick off convention week. The next step in the story was the obvious question. Who was Debbie working for? We all know the answer. Debbie worked for Hillary. But that question was never asked in earnest and it was certainly not answered.

The ever-vigilant Clinton machine knew the score. If Hilary’s tied to Debbie, we’re completely screwed.  Those Sanders true believers will Kirk out nonstop for the rest of the convention.

Clinton campaign head Robby Mook rushed to the media with an outrageous claim that the Russians hacked the DNC email server to aid the Trump campaign.   This was a desperate attempt to divert public attention from the inevitable conclusion that Hillary Clinton is a total slime ball, Bill without the charm.

“What’s disturbing to us is that experts are telling us Russian state actors broke into the DNC, stole these emails, and other experts are now saying that the Russians are releasing these emails for the purpose of actually helping Donald Trump,” Mook said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Robby Mook from Politico, June 24

This is classic McCarthyism.   It’s not Robby Mook making this ridiculous claim. It’s “experts” telling him that the Russians (i.e., Putin) did it. He didn’t name any experts. The media didn’t interview any experts. Mook just leveled the charge.

Joseph McCarthy

In 1950, Senator Joseph McCarthy (R, WI)
claimed there were 205 known members of the Communist Party working for the U.S. State Department. He never produced the names. WikiCommons

One expert who should know, President Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, threw cold water on the story. On July 28, he said that his group wasn’t ready “yet to make a call on attribution.” His next remark was telling: “We don’t know enough about this to ascribe motivation regardless of who it might have been.” In other words, even if Clapper  finds out that the Russians hacked the emails, he won’t know why.

Clapper is obviously no Attorney General Loretta Lynch. He was burned once inventing stories for the White House. Not this time, it seems.

But, as we all know, there’s never a shortage of outrageous liars when McCarthyism moves into its high dudgeon. If the current intelligence masters won’t cooperate, let’s exhume a recent retiree.

In a New York Times OpEd endorsing Clinton for president, former CIA head Michael Morrell showed us how true McCarthyism works. He said: “In the intelligence business, we would say that Mr. Putin had recruited Mr. Trump as an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation.”

I’m simply breathless. These Clinton McCarthyites have no shame. They spout this garbage and expect us to believe it.

You don’t need to like Putin’s policies to recognize the man’s brilliance and intelligence. Given that, why would someone as intelligent as Putin want to take over the mind of Donald Trump when it’s been obvious from day one that Trump is going to lose the election? Put another way, if Putin is intelligent enough to enter and control the mind of a presidential candidate, isn’t he intelligent enough to do that to the mind of the obvious winner?

Since the charge of Russia meddling in the Clinton campaign and Trump’s consecutive epic fails (e.g., arguing with a baby), it appears that Clinton has or is close to a double-digit lead. This is the same Hillary Clinton with a 55% disapproval rating. Before Clinton and her bots channeled the spirit and tactics of the late Senator Joseph McCarthy, Clinton was only leading by a few points. Just as Trump did with his ethnic slurs, the Clinton campaign will do with Putin paranoia. She’s now up 10 or so points. The Democrats will flog this dead horse until Election Day.

It’s one thing to oppose Donald Trump for president. It’s entirely another to actively support a serial liar, warmonger, and likely crook as the alternative. Every single public figure from politics to Hollywood to corporate America that comes out for Hillary as the responsible choice and spouts this Putin paranoia should hope that there is no afterlife. The Deity is not amused.

    PRESIDENTS ARE SELECTED, NOT ELECTED (quote attributed to FDR).

    Mrs. Clinton has already been SELECTED to become the next president, you like it or not, and nothing will reverse such outcome.

    Reality-show entertainer Donald Trump has only been hired to keep distracted the ignorant and gullible masses in America, while maximizing the profits of Trump Enterprises via marketing, advertising and publishing (courtesy of meanstream media).

    Ordinary Americans have no say in the political system (their votes do NOT count); they are just lab rats destined to be tested in all possible ways in order to perfect the art of social engineering.

    • Exactly. They used to put on a real show, as though the “nation is split” and the hard core rightists just squeak in a bunch of close elections, thus justifying the neofascist oligarch welfare state as it exists today. It is so insulting that those in charge don’t even have enough respect/fear of the people to present a plausible storyline.

    Even so, the whole bullshit barrage seems to be losing its effectiveness. Maybe Toto pulled back the curtain and enough people saw who the Wizard really is and how he works and for who. But for whatever reason, even the “mainstreams” polls show that a majority of Americans are not so stupified and deluded as to be unable to realize that Hillary and Trump are both TOXIC SLIME.

    And THAT’S what American “democracy” comes down to, in 2016: a chose between two poisonous sleazebag slaves of the same oligarchy of the one-in-a-thousand that established its headquarters on Wall Street in the 1880s. Give us another century or two and maybe we’ll get rid of them. How long did it take the French to get around to Louis XVI?

      The Clinton-Trump numbers appear rigged, but Jill Stein’s (Green Party) numbers are up as are TPP Johnson’s (Libertarian). Stein will benefit from the convention attention boost, but no sign of her going viral.

      The Democratic/Republican party ruts are responsible for the ‘popularity’ of Clinton and Trump. Its far more damning that Jill Stein can’t top Gary TPP Johnson.

      • Thanks for the mention of Johnson’s TPP stance. Some Libertarian. Stein has no chance, Johnson’s is a vanity campaign, and we’re stuck with end of the world Hillary.

            If ever Carlin was needed in THIS world…

    • I agree with you word for word. The Toto analogy is very precise and apt. Just turn the wizard into a sadistic monster and it’s up to date.

      We’re in the trough of grand cycle, imho, that reached it’s pinnacle in the 1960’s with expansive and just domestic policy directions and, at the same time, began the undoing of everything with the for-profit Vietnam war. The inroads of meritocracy and decency were quickly eroded by nepotism and crony capitalism. There is an inverted pyramid of intelligence with the oligarchs and their mandarins, those at the top, are at the bottom of the intelligence scale. As you say, Clinton versus Trump is the ultimate expression of that slide.

      As for the French, good work on Louis XVI but how many years did it take to return to Louis XVIII. I’m reminded of that scene in True Detective where history is described as a wheel where we re-experience the same dreadful events over and over.

    Except, the polls are b.s. now. All the pollsters have to do is shift the methodology to squeeze out Trump support. Reuters modified a question,

    “As a result, Reuters/Ipsos is amending the wording of the choice and eliminating the word “Neither,” bringing the option in line with other polls.”

    … in line with other polls? Reuters/Ipsos was the last one to cave in to poll rigging?

    Its quite possible Trump has retained his lead and things are so desperate the neocons need to corrupt the polling agencies.

  • Michael Riley

    You are correct, I just find it odd you use the term McCarthyism., since it’s already been validated
    everything Mr McCarthy was fighting for has been confirmed true. I’m going to assume you’re already
    knowledgeable to the fact the same Zionist-Globalist Mr Carthy was fighting against are the same beast you refer to on this blog.

    • If you’re referring to Senator Eugene McCarthy, I wouldn’t disagree across the board but as for the drunk and slimy Senator from Wisconsin, Joseph R. McCarthy, I must say that the nightmare version of reality he presented, fueled by the Iago figure Roy Cohn, only comes true when the deviant oligarchs make it true.

    When Trump did that back-and-forth with the screaming baby, I wanted to scream, “For the love of God, Donald, just STOP. You’re making an ass of yourself and you’re not nearly as fast on your feet as you think you are.”

    • Trump’s utter lack of any form of discipline indicates that he will simply fade into oblivion, at least until the next WikiLeaks barrage hits Clinton. The guy can’t even control himself with a baby. It’s just pathetic. The irony is that after the election Trump will still be rich but we’re all screwed. Johnson’s for TPP, Stein can’t win, and we’re stuck with the madness of another Clinton.

  • Eddie

    This election reminds me of the SPAM routine from Monty Python back in the day. Do you want a Jewish Green Party President, a Jewish Socialist (“Democrat”), a deeply pro-Zionist neo-con with a sociopathic pedigree, or a crypto-Zionist faux-populist demagogue? What a choice: heads they win, tails we lose. Voting is for schmucks.

  • Lynn Walker

    You obviously missed the memo, because you’re not on anybody’s need-to-know list, but this is the Rep’s turn to win. Trump is the new President. Of course, you’re so distracted by your own ego that this won’t register either.

    Oh, and the oligarchs waste his ass after the election. I hope I didn’t spoil the ending for anyone.

    • I’ll look for that memo but the one I got said that the Koch brothers were sitting out the presidential election. Hillary is the candidate of Wall Street, pure and simple. They smell another crash coming and it takes a Democrat to do the bailout (kind of like it took Nixon to recognize China). This is not a good way to run a country or any other organization for that matter. We didn’t create it and we don’t deserve it.

        They are all Rockefeller CFR sock puppets, they use the Dems for their banking schemes and the Reps for their tax the middle class schemes. The Dems and Wilson hand over the Federal Reserve to the Rockefeller Rothschild central bankers……..the Reps and Nelson Aldrich introduce the 16th amendment and create the income tax which soaks the middle class while leaving their fortunes virtually untouched as they have locked them away in the Foundation system they created…….Nixon and Kissinger and the CFR open the door to China……Carter and Rockefeller’s Tri Laterals betray Taiwan…..Clinton (CFR) signs Nafta, repeals Glass Steagall and signs the CFMA creating the housing bubble and this massive ponzi scheme called the derivatives markets…….Bush passes the Patriot Act………Obama doubles down on the Patriot Act while eliminating all mention of Jihad and Islam from official guidelines thereby completing the bait and switch and this after all the incessant whining about said act from the Democrats…….Obama promotes TPP……..I mean on and on this stuff goes and it is all a game of using the alleged opposition party to create manufactured consent…..the people still believe the Dems are for the common man, against bankers and big business and they still believe that the Reps are for small government and low the middle class and low taxes and no matter how much evidence there is to the contrary they will go on believing this false narrative until they die.

        The CFR is the government not these marionettes in the WH and cabinet.

    This “Putin did it” nonsense is best explained to people with this little tale.

    My neighbor comes over in a distraught state as her home has been broken into and items were taken. She is beside herself with grief and anger and is looking for your sympathy and support. She states she believes it was the new latino family that moved into the neighborhood. No real proof mind you but you know, “latinos”
    She fails to mention that the thieves, whomever they may be, also stole the 400 pounds of cocaine she had stashed in her living room. This comes to light later on and when you even dare to mention or question this odd fact she blows up all over again with screams “Can’t you see I am the victim!!”.

    Life long democrat and not voting for Hillary Clinton.

    Better to vote for what you want and not get it than vote for what you don’t want and get it.

    If Putin is secretly picking sides in the American elections, he surely knows that a Clinton win will mean war with the West neocons. Vicky Nudelman and the Kagan Clan want scalps hanging from their tents because of the embarrassment of losing Crimea.
