I believe Putin

As reported by RT:

“They caused this [anti-Russian] hysteria with a sole goal to distract the public from the essence of what the hackers leaked,” Putin said at an economic forum in Moscow, referring to the hacking allegations.

“It’s basically a way of manipulating public opinion, but for some reason nobody discusses that. They only talk about who did it.”

Putin dismissed the notion that the leaks were in line with Russian goals. The Democrat camp claims that Moscow favors Donald Trump as the next US president and is using cyberwarfare to manipulate the outcome of the November vote.

“They say it was in Russia’s interest. There are no Russian interests involved,” he stated.

This is not to say that Putin should always be believed, but he’s no more of a liar than Obama or the Clintons.

For some reason, the Hillary campaign believes they can win votes by linking Trump to Russia, because they believe that blue-collar whites hate the Russians, and they will vote Hillary if they think Russia is somehow connected to Trump.

What a bunch of hypocrites and liars they are! Back in 2012, the liberals and the Democrats all had a big laugh when Obama told Romney during a debate that “the 1980s are now calling and they want their foreign policy back. Because the Cold War has been over for 20 years.” (Watch on YouTube.)

Anyway, if Russia has the capability to hack into the email accounts of VIPs, I don’t see how it benefits Russia by sending the info to WikiLeaks. It would benefit Russia to keep it secret so that the Americans don’t beef up their cybersecurity. Also, according to Hillary Clinton, Trump is dangerous and will start a nuclear war. All those nuclear missiles are pointed at Russia. If the Clinton campaign believed any of its own rhetoric, then notion that Putin would help to elect the candidate who might obliterate him off the map is absolutely ludicrous.

The idea that the hack is coming from the Russian government is too conveniently beneficial to the Clinton campaign to be believed.

  1. Hillary’s little server farm would be a high priority target to private as well as national interests. Anyone who mailed Hillary should assume that their conversation is indexed in multiple databases worldwide. So pointing the finger at Putin is just guesswork.

      If you assume the worst conspiracy theories about Trump’s relationship with Russia, he is still preferable to Hillary who sees nothing wrong with continuing Obama’s deliberate policy of allowing ISIS to take over Western Europe and the United States.

    • Actually I agree. Stupid as it seems, it maps to what happened.

      (1) Obama announces plans for a great reset with Putin and Russia
      (2) Obama and the Democrats mock Romney for worrying about Russia. (The 80s called. They want their foreign policy back! LOLOLOLOL)
      (3) Putin doesn’t dance to the LGBT agenda. In fact he pretty much goes in the opposite direction.
      (4) Putin is instantly the worst evar in the eyes of the left. Even him fighting ISIS doesn’t count now.

      Consider also that Hillary Clinton state department’s focus in relation to Africa was LGBT rights. Which is not in the top 100 of problems Africa faces. Ahead of LGBT stuff is tyranny, cannibalism, population bombs, civil war everywhere and so on. But nooo, LGBT was *the* objective for Africa.

      • “LGBT was *the* objective for Africa”

        Gay rights are also closely allied to feminism, which of course matters a lot to Hillary. The professions that make up the establishment–law, academia and media–which together form the nearest thing to the religious authorities in the West–are heavily female and gay friendly too. Anyone who has contact with feminists through work or social media, or, even as friends/family will know how much feminists love gays, for fairly explicable reasons.

        According to this article Trump would win if only men voted.

    • Holy shit! That’s an awesome theory!
      This just occurred to me: those who admire Putin should emulate him. He identifies the ancient enemy of his people — the West — and treats it as such. So our Putin-admirers should identify the ancient enemy of their (our) people — the vast horde of expressionless steppe-barbarians — and treat it as such. The more you admire Putin, the more you should regard him and his horde as the enemy.
      It pisses me off that Trumpites tend to cry out, in an alarmed tone, “she’s going to start a war with Putin!” Putin’s strutting around beating his chest — “Get out of my corner of the schoolyard.” Why should it be his corner? He’s just a barbarian warlord, like an Comanche chief. Screw him. We have the giant robots and plasma rays. We don’t? Well, let’s build them, then. It will be fun and educational.

      • Except Putin considers himself the defender of Western Civilization and Moscow the third and final capital of the Roman Empire. “The West” is his enemy only because the The West is trying to destroy The West. Putin is not our enemy. He is our only ally of any importance on the world stage.

      • You guys are giving Putin way too much credit for principle.

        Putin likes power. If Russia has more power, he has more power. He doesn’t give a f*** about the white man. He supports nationalist parties in Europe because they weaken the EU, a rival power. He thinks Trump is (a) dumb/callow and (b) pro-Russian, either due to bromance or business interests, so he will support Trump for president of his greatest rival. He supports Orthodox Christianity because it’s a buttress against (a) liberal secularism from Western Europe that threatens his power base and (b) Islam, because there are lots of Muslim countries bordering Russia that are a source of problems, and plenty of local Muslim populations that are a source of problems. He supports Assad because he’s a Russian ally, not because Assad is a threat to Israel (as some of the alt-right seems to think).

        I give him full credit for pursuing the interests of his nation as a leader should do. However, Russia is a rival power. In some respects if we meddled in the Middle East less, we’d waste less blood and treasure and improve our relations with Russia. Our interests don’t have to be opposed to Russia’s. But they often will be (oil prices come to mind).

      • Israel is the true defender of Western civilization:

        https://pragmaticallydistributed.wordpress.com/2016/10/12/warnings-against-an-israeli-airstrike-on-iran-are-hollow/

        When the subject of whether Israel should attack Iran’s nuclear program is raised, the ensuing discussion inevitably veers into what consequences to expect following an Israeli strike.

        While the question of what will be the aftermath to war is always legitimate, the dire scenarios painted by opponents of an Israeli attack are all hobbled with implausibility. The usual leftist and far-right predictions in the “against” camp center around, and are limited to, a vague threat that Iran will pursue a “wider war” against Israel.

      • Israel’s air force is and always has been primarily and offensive one. IDF doctrine was always that the IAF would project force behind enemy lines to give the outnumbered and reservist dependent IDF time to fully mobilize.

        Israel will never attack Iran because Israel is spiritually weak, but they certainly have the physical capability to attack.

      • “Holy shit! That’s an awesome theory!”

        Thanks. I first proposed the theory when the gaystream media turned virulently Russophobic many years ago and I could find no reason for this Russophobia — Russia was the same as ever, same president, same policies. Except…… President Putin lawfully suppresses public expression of heterophobia and sodomite pride [sic] while European and American governments officially pretend one man shoving his penis into another man’s lower GI tract is a beautiful alternative lifestyle choice.

        At that time, the Bathhouse Regime inflicted economic sanctions against individual Russians for “human rights violations.” These human rights violations all, without exception, consisted of publicly opposing the LGBTWTFLOLBBQ deathstyle.

        illary and the Democratic Party want to start World War III because President Putin doesn’t pretend sodomy is worth celebrating. You want to see and end to the sanctions and the bellicose Russophobic rhetoric? If President Putin led a sodomite pride [sic] parade, the gaystream media, Democratic Party, illary, and the EU would suddenly lurv Russia.

      • Most americans don’t see Russians (expressionless steppe barbarians huh? nice racism there) as the traditional enemy, and they certainly are not, because they share our values more than Ahmed and Pedro.

        Syria is to Russia like Panama is to the US. Its a strategic point and Russia has far more legitimate interests there from a geopolitical standpoint than the US does.

        I hope you realize that you are warmongering against a people which do the West no harm, and in the process helping muslim terrorists. I don’t know if this urge comes from your anti-Russian prejudice, or some other reason, but you sound nuts and nobody in America wants war with Russia, especially while we let in anybody and everybody and send our own jobs overseas. This is completely insane.

        Incorrect.

        They destroyed Saddam Hussein’s nuclear program in the 1980s with warplane and radar technology that is decades behind what they have today. If they could reach Iraq in the 1980s they can certainly reach Iranian nuclear sites.

    • The premise is that Russia has every interest in undermining the US and the West in General. And yes, that is a valid and substantive premise. Russia is a geo-political opponent of the United States, do brush up on your history and current events.

      Trump is an unstable narcissist, eager to lash out at whoever speaks against him. Any sane person can see that.

      You’re simply making up a strawman to make an argument.

      Trump unstable narcissist —-> Nuclear armageddon (No one specified Russia, only you)

      There are many reasons for Russia to want to Help Trump. The simplest one is that anything that hurts the Unites States and damages the idea of democratic government, anything that weakens the US benefits Russia. We are the sole remaining Superpower, Russia (under Putin) is eager to regain it’s lost status.

      And if you’re wondering (My vote is going to candidates that dont have an R next to their name)
