Russian President Vladimir Putin announces readiness to fight terrorism along…
Name: Vladimir Putin
Type: Putin
Strength: If Chuck Norris was Russian
Donald Trump has a Yuge Man-Crush on Vladimir Putin. And it is not surprising given that Putin is the one person who can match Trump #Bigotry  for #Bigotry  whether #Racist#Homophobic  or #Misogynistic.

Should we be concerned with Trump's "fascination" with Putin? Professor Krugman explains the ramifications:

"But we’re talking about a ludicrous, outrageous candidate. And the Trump campaign’s recent behavior has quite a few foreign policy experts wondering just what kind of hold Mr. Putin has over the Republican nominee, and whether that influence will continue if he wins.

I’m not talking about merely admiring Mr. Putin’s performance — being impressed by the de facto dictator’s “strength,” and wanting to emulate his actions. I am, instead, talking about indications that Mr. Trump would, in office, actually follow a pro-Putin foreign policy, at the expense of America’s allies and her own self-interest."

More disturbingly Professor Krugman points out that a pro-Putin foreign policy could be a win-win for Trump. First he gets to help out the Dictator Demagogue that he clearly is fixated on, and Second, he might make a lot of money doing so:

"We do know that Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump’s campaign manager, has worked as a consultant for various dictators, and was for years on the payroll of Viktor Yanukovych, the former Ukrainian president and a Putin ally.

And there are reasons to wonder about Mr. Trump’s own financial interests. Remember, we know nothing about the true state of his business empire, and he has refused to release his taxes, which might tell us more. We do know that he has substantial if murky involvement with wealthy Russians and Russian businesses. You might say that these are private actors, not the government — but in Mr. Putin’s crony-capitalist paradise, this is a meaningless distinction."

If there are two people Donald Trump would place above the interests of America it is 1) Himself, and 2) Vladimir Putin. I think we can all agree with this #FACT.

Importantly Professor Krugman doesn't want to dwell on the origins or explanations for this strange Demagogue-to-Demagogue, Racist-to-Racist, Homophobic Bigot to Homophobic Bigot tête-à-tête between Trump and Putin; what matters are the implications and ramifications for America:

"At some level, Mr. Trump’s motives shouldn’t matter. We should be horrified at the spectacle of a major-party candidate casually suggesting that he might abandon American allies — just as we should be horrified when that same candidate suggests that he might welsh on American financial obligations. But there’s something very strange and disturbing going on here, and it should not be ignored."

Useful Idiot

"In political jargon, useful idiot is a term for people perceived as propagandists for a cause whose goals they are not fully aware of, and who are used cynically by the leaders of the cause."

It's a Cold War term of art so it doesn't precisely fit today's world which lacks a USSR. Plus, many of these agents know exactly what they are doing, even if others don't.

And yet the term 'useful idiot' is such an apt description of Donald Trump that I think we should revamp this term for modern day use.

In the following we can see the pattern, first played out in Europe (contributing most recently to the Brexit) that is being used in the current US election.

The collapse of the Soviet Union brought, painfully, capitalism to Russia. This only gave old players new tools. Call it capitalism and right wing politicians eat it up.

Now, the US tries to influence the world as well. No doubt. I'm not saying that we're pure and they're evil. What I am saying is, "Wake up."

Once upon a time, we had a vocabulary to describe organizations like the forum or the Institute for Democracy and Cooperation. During the Cold War, we spoke of “front organizations,” such as the World Federation of Trade Unions or even the American Communist Party, that were allegedly independent but secretly supported with Soviet money. Such groups were run by “agents of influence”—people who knowingly promoted the interests of the Soviet Union inside the West—or “useful idiots,” people who did the same thing, unconsciously, usually out of ideological naiveté.

But times have changed, and direct parallels cannot be drawn. Klaus, who is not an idiot, doesn’t hide his financial links to Moscow. The forum does not hide its links to Russia, either. Instead, they both seek openly to legitimize the anti-NATO, anti-European, anti-Western views of the Russian elite. In a bid for respectability, the forum’s website even displays the many logos of its distinguished “partner” organizations from around the world. Not all of these partnerships are real: A spokesman for the Council on Foreign Relations, whose logo appears on the site, told me that it does not support the forum at all. But if you were just glancing, you’d never know it.

Even harder to categorize are the actions of some genuinely legitimate politicians. For example, both Andrej Babis, the Czech finance minister, and Milos Zeman, the Czech president—once a regular at the forum—frequently echo or repeat Russian slogans, as occasionally does the Slovak prime minister, Robert Fico. In August and early September of 2014, all three argued against Western sanctions on Russia, using similar language. Zeman called them “ineffective,” Babis called them “nonsense,” and Fico called them “meaningless.” Later, they shifted their rhetoric and began to point to the refugee crisis and radical Islam as the “real” threats to Europe. “The refugee crisis threatens the Czech Republic more than Russia,” said Babis in September. “Islamist terrorism is a greater threat to Europe than Russia,” said Zeman in May.

Like Prime Minister Viktor Orbán in Budapest, all of these men have domestic political reasons for offering verbal support to Putin: They want to ride the anti–European Union, anti-“establishment” wave that has washed across all of Europe, and to capitalize on economic discontent. Since the EU began, politicians have long found it useful to blame “Brussels” for problems that they cannot fix. But there may be other motives, too. Zeman’s close adviser ran the office of Lukoil, the Russian oil company. Babis, who is also one of the Czech Republic’s richest men, owns companies which consume a good deal of Russian gas.

But I shouldn’t unfairly single out central Europeans, for there are many other Europeans who support Russian foreign policy with similarly mixed motives. Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi maintains both a political and a financial relationship with Putin. So does Gerhard Schröder, the former chancellor of Germany. These men aren’t idiots either—but neither are they secret agents, spies, or traitors. At the same time, they are working steadily, in their own ways, to undermine Western security and support the spread of Russian authoritarianism in Eastern Europe as well as the Middle East. So what do we call them? We need a new vocabulary for a new era.

Comment: Is Putin Helps Trump
In many countries, right-wing populists are becoming more influential. Among them - a potential presidential candidate Donald Trump. The Russian authorities are trying to use this process to come out of isolation. Do they succeed? According to Igor Eydman.
Donald Trump
Donald Trump
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in late April that Russia has committed itself to building a self-sustaining economy and in terms of sanctions will be hoping for their own force . Some commentators immediately noted the similarity of this approach with the Juche idea. However, unlike North Korea, Putin's Russia is unlikely to seriously ready for isolation. It's not even just the fact that Russia's economy is heavily dependent on the supply of Western techniques and technologies. Putin's elite for the most part live "in two houses." Almost every large Russian chief has real estate assets in the West account. There they rest, where their children study. "Krymnash" - this is for the population. But for the elite - "Londonnash", "Kurshevelnash", "Sardiniyanasha" finally "Panamanasha".
Igor Eydman
Igor Eydman
Isolation from the West, the tightening of sanctions - is a very serious threat to the Kremlin. However, to change its policy, he is not going. Same Lavrov said that Russia is not satisfied with the state of affairs when, in exchange for cooperation, "we" should "be the same as they" accept "Western attitude to human rights", because "it is contrary to the fundamentals of our culture." In a situation where the Russian authorities, on the one hand, fear of isolation, on the other hand, do not want to conform to accepted in the western world cultural and legal norms, they are left with only one way out - to change the West itself.
Last Putin rate?
The world situation is favorable for these intentions. Humanistic tolerant political culture in crisis. Pravopopulistskaya wave in Western countries have a lot in common with Putinism, including going beyond the liberal political tradition and demonstrative violation of the unwritten rules of political correctness. Until recently, such views could afford only politicians marginalized. Now they are preaching the real contenders for the highest public office of the Austrian Hofer to Trump American.
Russian authorities' policy promotes the growth of popularity of these forces. Violation of Russia in the Crimean and Donbass conflicts of international legal norms demonstrates Western voters that in the modern world, like a hundred years ago, might is right. So, it is necessary to vote for their "strong personalities" that can protect against threats from "outsiders". Kremlin shows a seductive example of the return to the "Hottentot" political morality (good - when I eat a neighbor, and badly - when a neighbor is eating me), to nationalism, warlordism, the cult of force in politics. In a world where there is President Putin, at Trump candidate a better chance of success.

Trump: Relations with Russia it is necessary to establish a position of strength
Republican Trump presented to the public their foreign policy views under the slogan "America first". If, as president, he will not be able to negotiate with Moscow, he "just leave the negotiating table." (4/28/2016)
Obama: Putin wants to undermine European unity
Investigation of Der Spiegel: How the German right-wing populists have become friends of the Kremlin
The Russian authorities are actively trying to use pravopopulistskuyu wave to change the world for themselves, for their criminal practices. To do this, they corrupt the Western political and business elite, buying media, intellectuals, publicists. The Kremlin seems to dream of a world where presidents Putin, Trump, Marine Le Pen and Chancellor Frauke Petry (Frauke Petry) would have agreed with the Chinese leaders on the division of the world into spheres of influence.
Look , who has come
Putin and Trump is no coincidence speak each other compliments. They are much closer together. And that, and other support people, who did not accept the ideas of humanism and tolerance, how long ago it seemed firmly entrenched in Western culture. A typical supporter Trump - a middle-aged white man without higher education with an average or slightly below average income. Such people are more likely to express dissatisfaction against racial minorities and immigrants.
Similar attitudes prevail among supporters of Putin. In Russia alone, they are spread throughout society. Half of Russians to some extent shared the thesis of "Russia for the Russian" , only a quarter believes that there should be restrictions on residence in Russia of any nation.
Many supporters of Putin and Trump, judging by their statements on social networks, mistrust towards representatives of other cultures and races; despised sexual minorities, is sexist relate to women; confident in their own racial, national, religious superiority. Psychologists call these people the authoritarian personality.
American "Putin" against Putin
But it is unlikely to help Trump Putin. The billionaire has said it will build a relationship with Russia with a position of strength, and even in the case that orders to shoot at Russian military aircraft , committing dangerous maneuvers near the US Air Force.
Liberal Obama is very far from such plans. But Trump, if he comes to power, just might do the most terrible dreams a reality of the Russian president. And, precisely because it has a lot in common with Putin. The owner of the Kremlin in the face Trump's face with the same ostentatious patriots, who are building themselves from the strong personality, like himself. From both presidents voters will wait brutal, tough decisions. Donald Trump is seriously start playing with Vladimir Putin in military-patriotic games, proving who is the real boss in the world. The finale of these games for Russia, with its weak economy and military potential, incomparable with the US, will inevitably be very sad.
