Trump and the Big Picture in ten easy steps:

1. Trump makes bad business deals and stiffs creditors in the 80s and 90s, loses credit from US investors/banks and can't get a loan.

2. Trump finds willing lenders in Russia, and Russia finds a future agent in Trump.

3. Russia entices Trump into making huge financial commitments through loans and investments with Russian oligarchs whom Putin controls.

4. In the Russian tradition, kompromat on Trump is accumulated over years of transactions designed to appeal to Trump's narcissism and grandiosity. He's an easy mark.

5. Putin, through his contacts, encourages Trump to take a political role on alternate, then mainstream media.

6. Through Russian contacts, Trump makes quid pro quo deals with Russian agents/businessmen, all directly connected to Putin. These are preliminary events that will lead to more substantial "compromises" that Trump must make due to his deep financial ties and obligations to Russian mafia/investment figures.

7. Putin manages a team of Russian agents who work on the periphery of Trump's inner circle to steer Trump in a direction of national political prominence, using tactics that sew doubt among his followers in US institutions. Putin's goal is to use Trump to weaken and bring down the US as a major player in world politics.

8. With the aid of Russian money, hundreds of millions, invested in the GOP leadership, Trump's push for the presidency, television and radio, and social media, the extreme right wing in the US is strengthened through the use of propaganda and election campaigns. "Bringing down the established order" becomes fashionable for the US extreme right wing. Russian figure Alexandre Dugin becomes the philosophical inspiration for race-based nationalism that's adopted by the hard right wing under Trump's direction. Trump sees the benefit in showing favor toward white supremacists as extensions of Russia's cultural and political imperialism.

9. With the money and propaganda emanating from Russia, Trump gets elected president and plans on ending Russian sanctions as part of his end of the deal to get Russian assistance in the 2016 campaign.

10. Trump's role as RUSSIAN AGENT in the White House, as directed by Putin, is to "dismantle the administrative state" (in Bannon's terms), and thereby to weaken the internal functioning of the US as a nation. Trump is actively pursuing the weakening of the US as an international leader, partner, and political participant. His intent AS A RUSSIAN AGENT is to remake the US in the likeness of Russia: a strong oligopoly with a diminished and impotent middle class, a severely impoverished working class, a powerful police force for social control, the elimination of worker unions, and the elimination of corporate regulations (freeing criminal enterprises to steal and launder money).


Make no mistake. Trump is a Russian agent. He's been in Russia's hip pocket for DECADES. This is not a recent conversion. Russia's leadership can now pressure Trump to do whatever it wants. Trump is entirely compromised and cannot separate himself from Russia's influence even if he wanted to. For as long as Trump is president, he'll continue to destroy the US from within. THAT'S HIS MISSION.

1. You should re-post this at least once. A month

Or maybe you already have. If so I thank you because I got to see it.

I'm deadly serious. A little editing for updates and you can post it again.

39. You can add your original post to your journal

The journal to add it to (yours) is listed on the bottom right of your posts with the green plus sign.

Then you can find it by going to your journals, copy it and create a new thread and paste it in there.

Or you can copy and paste it into word on your computer and save it. Then when you want to re-post it start a new thread and copy and paste it into the first post.

37. And we need everyone to view this piece by Yale professor Timothy Snyder as well

Donald Trump was a fictional character in the election,
our sovereignty was violated by hostile foreign agents.

29. Don the Con has

screwed up EVERYTHING he touches. He is a success at this latest Russian escapade, only because he is getting lots of help from the GOP traitors. They took Russian money, and now they are complicit. Not to mention that after all these years, they have NO IDEA how to govern, especially if it requires them to be honest.

4. Great post, and please keep reposting! But, Trump is not a rUSSRian agent. He is an unknowing puppet

Ruled by his basest instincts.
The KGB/FSB are known for picking easy targets and molding them as needed.

Perhaps abetted by psychotropic influences.

Definitely encouraged by the 'uglicans who hope to get camouflage from their own rape of decency and democracy.
Who are also complicitly involved with the KGB/FSM.

9. Russia cultivates unwitting dupes as agents/assets.

Often these assets do no know the whole story or big picture.
And do not know the extent to how they are being used.

11. We can't be expected to agree on everything.

Since Trump's contacts with Russia goes back decades, it's impossible to believe that NO ONE ever told him about Russia's extraordinary expertise in sucking unwitting people into their web of pressure, blackmail, and intimidation. Trump may not have known at the outset, but his increasing ties with Russian oligarchs and their agents through the years, along with direct orders for him to perform various tasks (i.e., a Russian agent who tweeted to him, the day before, to ask "Russia", on camera, to collect HRC's emails) that run counter to his life long demands to be in control, only point to Trump's adherence to his own authoritarian tendencies: a linear relationship between the top of the hierarchy and the bottom. Trump knows through threats of blackmail and financial ruin who his master is: Putin.

I know. It's difficult to believe that Trump knew for several years that he owes Russia big time, and he MUST produce results. We'd rather believe that Trump is a naive, bumbling idiot careening from one dangerous minefield to another, and that the solution to his reckless and destructive behavior is to treat him like some kind of doddering, drooling, senile shell of a man and lead his shuffling feet to a quiet and safe place where his only refuge is to talk to himself in a mirror. But, IMO, to believe that is to let him off the hook, to give him an option to play the incompetent hand and stay out of jail and disgrace, while still collecting millions in collaborative profiteering with the Russian mob. Good night to that notion.

20. The Tangeranus has proven pretty uncaring toward the blackmail aspect. (Stormy story)

But, it really seems (like many antisocial types) his fear of financial ruin is the main thread in this puppet.

23. Oh, someone, or even several someones, may have told him.

But what are the chances he would tacitly admit that he COULD be duped and follow the advice? He is MUCH too smart for that - just ask him.

Not that fine points like that matter, at this late date.

A great overall summation.

10. You should repost this elsewhere, too, where more will see it.

Daily Kos would be good, and the Hill would be better.

Trump is a traitor, a destroyer of all we hold dear. As long as he is president he and his treasonous minions will continue to destroy this nation from within.

18. And in 2013 when Trump was in Moscow for his Miss Universe Pageant Trump agreed to run for POTUS ...

.... w/Russian help and would in return help out Putin and Russian mobsters after he became POTUS.
Shortly there after or before Putin got his kompromat control over Trump with his pee pee tape.

Russia has been propping up Trump from the 1990s as all his businesses went bankrupt of failed.


BTW how many Russians attended the RNC and Trump's inauguration?

19. Putin's Revenge

I concur.

Did you watch this?

https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/putins-revenge/

FRONTLINE tells the inside story of how Vladimir Putin came to see the United States as an enemy and why he decided to target an American election.

35. nail - meet hammer head.

Perfectly stated. I've been saying this since before Trump won the party's nomination. People have been calling me a conspiracy theorist because there has been "no evidence". Yet the evidence abounds and has been around for may years, much as it was before our country was falsely led into the Iraq war. Russia has already taken over the controls. Who knows how many sleeper agents they have lying dormant here, not to mention the 3% of our population who owns 50% of guns (https://qz.com/1095899/gun-ownership-in-america-in-three-charts/) - who are those people?

45 being Russian asset, that's prostitution of the highest order. And, if you like, he was groomed all his life by his mafioso daddy. When I learned to regard his method of doing business as organized crime, it makes sense.
