    There’s a clear pattern: Putin runs stealth efforts on behalf of politicians who rail against the European Union and want to push away from NATO. He’s been a patron of Golden Dawn in Greece, Ataka in Bulgaria, and Jobbik in Hungary. Joe Bidenwarned about this effort last year in a speech at the Brookings Institution: “President Putin sees such political forces as useful tools to be manipulated, to create cracks in the European body politic which he can then exploit.” Ruptures that will likely multiply after Brexit—a campaign Russia’s many propaganda organs bombastically promoted.

    The destruction of Europe is a grandiose objective; so is the weakening of the United States. Until recently, Putin has only focused glancing attention on American elections. Then along came the presumptive Republican nominee.

    Donald Trump is like the Kremlin’s favored candidates, only more so. He celebrated the United Kingdom’s exit from the EU. He denounces NATO with feeling. He is also a great admirer of Vladimir Putin. Trump’s devotion to the Russian president has been portrayed as buffoonish enthusiasm for a fellow macho strongman. But Trump’s statements of praise amount to something closer to slavish devotion. In 2007, he praised Putin for “rebuilding Russia.” A year later he added, “He does his work well. Much better than our Bush.” When Putin ripped American exceptionalism in a New York Times op-ed in 2013, Trump called it “a masterpiece.” Despite ample evidence, Trump denies that Putin has assassinated his opponents: “In all fairness to Putin, you’re saying he killed people. I haven’t seen that.” In the event that such killings have transpired, they can be forgiven: “At least he’s a leader.” And not just any old head of state: “I will tell you that, in terms of leadership, he’s getting an A.”

    Long read, but informative.

    Take an hour, read it, click the links and follow the money. I've been long suspicious of the unwavering support for Comrade Don online, now I know why: Russian click farms.

    The Russian propaganda machine is running hard and fast to get their candidate elected president.

    Let's pray it's successful.

    If Putin has miscalculated that badly which candidate would do the most to weaken America, he deserves to pay the price.

    Wrong thread, Comrade, but no, they probably weren't. Nice attempt at deflection, and congrats on your hacker comrades getting them out, though. Makes undecided (see: tards) voters look again at Putin's handpuppet.

    This weekend we once again got confirmation that any time the generic narrative spectacularly falls apart, and the "establishment" is caught with its pants down (or, in the case of the DNC, engaging in borderline election fraud leading to what the FT just described as "Democrats in turmoil") what does it do? Whyblame Putin of course, and more specifically his "useful idiots", and hope the whole thing blows over quickly.

    Not convinced? Here is the proof.

    Putin is a bigger egomaniac than Trump, and a bigger crook than Hillary. My choice would have been Bloomberg to run for President. He is truly his own man and tough enough to do the job. I didn't always agree with him but I think he did a good job as mayor of NY.
