The Support of Putin and his Friends for Donald Trump Should Concern all Americans

A series of radio and television advertisements have been running in Florida criticizing Donald Trump for many things. However, the most serious criticism is that Donald Trump admires Vladimir Putin. In fact, the admiration is mutual!

One of the strongest Russian supporters of dictator Putin is Aleksandr (Alexander) Gelyevich Dugin. He is known as “Putin’s Rasputin.” Dugin has endorsed Donald Trump for president. Why would a Russian fascist geopolitical writer, who hates the United States as much as Vladimir Putin, do such a strange thing? Certainly, Trump’s endorsement by Dugin, as well as Putin’s praised of Trump, should be a matter of great concern for all Americans. The fact that Putin and his friends want Donald Trump as our next president is in the national interest of Russia. National security experts have said that Russia is the worst and number one enemy nation of the United States.

Sadly, Trump’s supporters are ignoring his stated admiration for Russian gangster Putin as Obama’s supporters ignored the president’s ties to radical Islam and communists when he was running for the White House. Trump is not worried that this information or any other will hurt him. The New York magnate stated a few weeks ago that he could kill someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue in New York City and his followers would continue to support him. Does Trump think that his supporters are such a bunch of fanatics that they will always like him and it does not matter to them what his past has been, his unpredictable temperament, his many flip flops (often from one day to the other), his outrageous comments that comes out of his mouth, and the tirades of insults that they will always vote for him?

After his victories in Louisiana and Kentucky on March 5, 2016, Trump stated that “up to seven months ago I was part of the establishment but I am no longer part of it.” His supporters obviously did not pay attention or, if they did, did not care. Trump has always been part of the Democratic establishment supporting Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama up to 2009. The Republican establishment is opposed to his nomination because of Trump’s past support for the Democratic establishment and the concern that if Trump is the nominee, he will be defeated in a Democratic landslide and Republicans might even losing the Senate.

Alexander Dugin wrote an article on February 2, 2016 entitled “Trump is Real America” which was published in the Kremlin-backed and pro-Russian propaganda Katehon think tank and website. Dugin wants the American empire to be destroyed. He is a key theorist of the ideological underpinnings of “Putinism” and “Eurasianism” which is a very dangerous movement that seeks to provide a basis for uniting not only Russia, but all the world’s anti-freedom forces, under Moscow’s leadership against the United States and its allies in the West. (Alexander) Gelyevich Dugin is a long-time adviser to Putin. He is a Russian political scientist well known for his fascist views and who calls to hasten the “end of times” with all-out war. He has close ties with the Kremlin and the Russian military, having served as an advisor to State Duma speaker and key member of the ruling United Russia party Sergei Naryshkin. Dugin was the leading organizer of the National Bolshevik Party, National Bolshevik Front, and Eurasia Party. He is the author of more than 30 books, among them Foundations of Geopolitics and The Fourth Political Theory.

Dugin advocates on the restoration of the Russian Empire through the unification of Russian-speaking territories, which roughly corresponds to the former Soviet republics, such as Georgia and Ukraine, and unification with Russian-speaking territories, especially eastern Ukraine and Crimea. In the Kremlin, Dugin represents the “war party”, a division in the heart of the leadership concerning Ukraine, and is seen as the driving conceptual force behind Vladimir Putin’s initiative for the annexation of Crimea by Russia. According to his geopolitical views, he considers the war between Russia and Ukraine to be inevitable and has encouraged Putin’s military intervention in Crimea and eastern Ukraine.

Dugin, a friend and supporter of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, wrote that Trump is, no doubt, the sensation of the presidential elections. Trump is a real change from the usual display. He said that the New York City real estate billionaire is tough, rough, rude, emotional, says what he thinks, and, apparently, candid.

The Russian fascist stated the following regarding Trump: “The fact that he is a billionaire doesn’t matter. He is different. He is an extremely successful ordinary American. He is crude America, without gloss and the globalist elite. He is sometimes disgusting and violent, but he is what he is. It is true America. Most likely, Donald Trump is another designed product, a virtual figure. However, it is him who makes people feel fresh and hopeful. He is trustworthy: the black peacekeeper promised to change everything, but was unable to change anything, nothing at all, and Hilary Clinton, with a quickly aging poker face, doesn’t promise to change anything, maybe Trump will be able to get America’s natural borders back.”

“Maybe, that redhead rude Yankee from the saloon will get back to the problems inside the country and will leave humanity alone, which is tired of American hegemony and its destructive policy of chaos, bloody rivers and color revolutions? Trump is a leader… But we want to put trust in Donald Trump. Vote for Trump, and see what will happen.”

It is quite right that Russia is tired of American hegemony since Russia wants to impose its destructive Russian bloody hegemony of chaos as is doing effectively in Syria, Iran, and other nations in the Middle East. Putin massive attacks against the people of Syria have provoked tens of thousands to flee to Europe. This massive Russian intervention in Syria has created enormous chaos and disruption to the European nation’s allies of the United States. Obama’s erroneous and weak foreign policy and his unilateral disarmament have given the opportunity for Putin to become the strong man in the Middle East as well as his continuous military aggression of Ukraine.

Trump’s Views on Putin and Russia are dangerous to the security of the United States

Cliff Kincaid wrote an article called “Is Trump a Sleeper Agent for Moscow?” which was published on Accuracy in Media on February 29, 2016. The reporter explained that the media are covering the fact that former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke supports Donald Trump for president. But why does Duke like Trump in the first place? It really has nothing to do with appeals to white voters. The reason of Duke’s support for Trump consists of their similar views on Russia.

Donald Trump has spoken highly of Vladimir Putin, describing him as “a strong leader who defends Russian interests and who could be an ally of the United States, especially in the Middle East.” David Duke believes much the same thing, and has a personal relationship with Alexander Dugin, a long-time adviser to Putin, who has developed an anti-American “Eurasian” alliance that includes Iran in the Middle East.

Air Force General Philip M. Breedlove is the Supreme Allied Commander in Europe.

Kincaid pointed out that those politicians who have endorsed Trump have an obligation to understand how Trump’s deference to Russian aggression in the Middle East will only increase the flow of immigrants into Europe and the United States. Recently, at a hearing conducted by the House Armed Services Committee, Air Force General Philip M. Breedlove, the Supreme Allied Commander in Europe said, “Russia and the Assad regime are deliberately weaponizing migration from Syria in an attempt to overwhelm European structures and break European resolve.”

The term “weaponizing” means that the Russians are deliberately using the refugee crisis as a weapon against the West. General Breedlove stated the following: “Russia’s military intervention in Syria has bolstered the regime of Bashar al-Assad, targeted U.S.-supported opposition elements, and complicated U.S. and Coalition operations against ISIL. The Syrian crisis is destabilizing the entire region, and Russia’s military intervention changed the dynamics of the conflict, which may lead to new or greater threats to the U.S. and its Allies for years to come.” General Breedlove said that Russia’s so-called war against ISIS is a fraud, and that the military operations of the Islamic State have actually benefited from Russian intervention in Syria.

Kincaid explained that David Duke’s editorial about his support for Trump is very revealing in this regard. Duke said that Trump will “Ensure that the USA will not go to war with Russia and create Word War III.” This absurd claim seems to be entirely based on the Russian propaganda carried by Russia Today, the global propaganda channel financed by Moscow, and other official Russian sources. To the contrary, “it is Russia that is waging war in Ukraine and the Middle East and threatening America and its allies—especially NATO member Turkey, and Israel.”

Kincaid wrote that Duke, a former KKK leader, in recent years has operated as a propagandist for Russia and Iran. An article on the Duke website from a Russian writer says the following about Duke: “He is has been a major force here in eliminating the last traces of that Jewish invasion of Russia. David Duke has seen that a proud and free Russian people are a key to the survival of European mankind. He is as important to this new revolution for freedom and heritage here today as John Reed was for Bolshevik enslavement 87 years earlier.” The latter is part of the Russian propaganda that Soviet communism was somehow “imposed” on Russia by international bankers, code language for Jews. Duke talks about a book, The Secret Behind Communism, claiming Jews are the source of Russia’s problems. Interestingly, Putin has done much the same thing, blaming the Jews for the Soviet communism that he once served as a KGB officer.

Robert Zubrin wrote an article on March 1, 2016 entitled “‘Putin’s Rasputin’ Endorses Trump” which was published in the Weekly Standard. Zubrin wrote that according to Dugin what Russia needs is a “genuine, true, radically revolutionary and consistent, fascist fascism.” The reporter stated the following: “On the other hand, Liberalism is an absolute evil…Only a global crusade against the U.S., the West, globalization, and their political-ideological expression, liberalism, is capable of becoming an adequate response…The American empire should be should be destroyed.”

Russian dictator Vladimir Putin would like Trump to be elected president. Why?

Zubrin pointed out that Dugin’s endorsement of Trump is noteworthy since “he has been given the role or organizing Eurasianist fifth columns supporting the Putin regime in western countries.” The reporter explained that in May 2014, as Putin was conducting his war against Ukraine, “Dugin held a secret meeting in Vienna with leaders of most of the ultranationalist parties of continental Europe, ranging from small fringe groups to the powerful French National Front, to organize support for the invasion.”

Trump’s views and attitude towards Russia and Putin are not only alarming but very dangerous to our national security. This shows he is naive and misinformed and does not realize that Russia is a geopolitical enemy of the United States and dictator Putin is a gangster.

Zubrin said that Dugin’s subversive effort was successful evidenced by the fact, that on February 19, 2016 the Moscow Times reported that French National Front leader Marine Le Pen, who received $13 million from the Kremlin in 2014, is currently negotiating with Putin for another $30 million to finance future support.

Robert Zubrin concluded his article by stating the following: “Trump and Marine Le Pen offer similar political profiles, combining xenophobic demagoguery, anti-Atlanticism, socialistic and protectionist policies, and open admiration and apologetics for Vladimir Putin. The founder of the French National Front, Jean-Marie Le Pen, recently endorsed Trump. Marine Le Pen supported the Russian takeover of Crimea, and is being openly bankrolled out of Moscow. Trump supports Russia’s actions in Syria, and has reportedly had many questionable business dealings with elements of Russian organized crime. Trump has been praised by Putin, and rather than reject such praise, has returned it, calling the Russian dictator a real leader and dismissing his many murders of political opponents at home and abroad as unproven.”

Trump and his advisors are Pro-Russia and naive about Putin

Many people were surprised when Russia’s dictator Vladimir Putin endorsed Donald Trump for president. Later, in a television interview, Trump said Putin had not killed journalists, opponents, or defectors, showing his appalling ignorance or worse, his desire not to criticize Putin. Donald Trump’s attitude about Russia and its dictator Vladimir Putin shows he is naive and highly misinformed so his critics will argue that he is unfit to lead the United States.

Trump said that he “often speaks highly” of Putin because of his “intelligence and no-nonsense way” but the front-runner of the Republican Party has incredibly denied that Russian dictator ordered the assassination of journalists and intelligence officers who have defected to the West.

Journalist Anna Politkovskaya was poisoned, but after she survived, was later shot dead.

Cliff Kincaid pointed out that Putin certainly has a “no-nonsense” approach to his perceived political enemies. Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya was poisoned. After she miraculously survived, she was then later shot dead on October 7, 2006, which happened to be Putin’s birthday.

Kincaid explained the following: “Politkovskaya had been warning about the KGB’s return to power and was investigating the circumstances surrounding the kidnapping and murder of hundreds in the Beslan school massacre in southern Russia in 2004. This event, like the 1999 Moscow apartment bombings, was blamed on Islamists and gave Putin the opportunity, or pretext, to further consolidate his power over the military, the intelligence agencies, and the economy. He assumed virtual dictatorial powers.”

Kincaid wrote that the poisoning of Politkovskaya was a hallmark of the KGB’s “no-nonsense” way of doing business. Later that same year, dissident and former FSB (The Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation is the principal security agency of Russia and the main successor agency to the USSR’s Committee of State Security: KGB) officer, Alexander Litvinenko, was murdered by poisoning in London, to where he had fled. Litvinenko wrote the book, Blowing Up Moscow: The Secret Plot to Bring Back KGB Terror, that deals the FSB’s role in those 1999 Moscow apartment bombings. He had also named al-Qaeda’s number two man, Ayman al-Zawahiri, as having been trained by the KGB.

Former FSB agent, Alexander Litvinenko, who deserted to London, was murdered by poisoning in that city by the Federal Security Service of the Russia following orders from Putin.

In February 2016, a British court found that Putin had ordered the murder by Polonium poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko, a former FSB agent who revealed that the 1999 apartment buildings bombings in Moscow that Putin used to seize dictatorial power were the work of Putin’s FSB itself. Apparently, the billionaire real estate magnate has ignored this information.

Kincaid stated the following: “While Trump’s 2011 book denounced Obama’s pandering to the Russians in areas like sabotaging missile defense for our allies, he said Putin had a grand vision, the creation of a Eurasian Union to replace the USSR. He said Putin wanted to control oil supplies to all of Europe. This was an important insight into how Putin’s regime is not defensive, nor reacting to the U.S. and NATO, but is instead aggressive in foreign affairs and trying to dominate its neighbors. However, rather than explain what the Russians were up to with this grand vision, Trump went on to say Hats off to the Russians in getting their way with Obama. One can fully understand taking Obama to task for giving in to the Russians. But praising the Russians for taking advantage of Obama reflects a trait that is all too common with many conservatives. Their disgust with Obama has blinded them to the nature of our enemies, who exploit his foreign policy to their advantage. They somehow think Putin is acting in America’s interests when Obama is not. That’s ludicrous.”

Kincaid pointed out that in his latest book, Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again, Trump explained that Putin is “outmaneuvering” Obama in the Middle East. Trump called Putin a leader, in contrast to Obama. But what is Putin leading? Trump referred to Iran as “Russia’s best friend,” without explaining the significance of its alliance with Russia. Trump also said in his book that he does not understand “why Germany and other countries watched impassively as Putin marched into Ukraine.”

After the invasion of Ukraine and the shoot-down of the Malaysian plane by Russian-backed terrorists, Trump claimed, “I think I became much richer because I can understand people and read people and Putin is not finished. Putin has got a long way to go.” Again, we are left thinking that Trump understands the aggressive intentions of Vladimir Putin. Yet, when Donald Trump was asked about the nuclear balance with Russia during the most recent Republican presidential debate, “he displayed complete ignorance of the decaying nature of the U.S. nuclear triad, which constitutes our ability to deter and survive a Russian nuclear first strike.”

Kincaid concluded his article by pointing out the following: “It looks like Putin has outmaneuvered Obama and Trump. It is an opening for Trump’s opponents, especially Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Marco Rubio (R-FL). But do they have the courage to follow the money and hold Trump accountable for doing business with a criminal regime that threatens the survival of the United States? At the end of this money trail they may find an explanation of why Trump is so reluctant to hold Putin responsible for his crimes.”

The strange friendship of Donald Trump with Bill and Hillary Clinton

Well-known author Ed Klein wrote an article in his blog on August 9, 2015 that was widely shared entitled “Why Bill Clinton is behind Donald Trump’s Problems?” Political insiders have told Klein that “Bill Clinton—who Charlie Rose once called the best political animal that’s ever been in American politics— called Donald Trump several weeks ago and encouraged him to run for president.” Why would Bill Clinton do that?

Trump is close to both Hillary and Bill Clinton and has contributed money to them in the past. The Clintons came to his wedding as he said during the first Republican presidential debate.

Klein pointed out that in Bill Clinton encouraged his friend Trump to run knowing the billionaire businessman would create confusion in the GOP ranks. Klein wrote the following: “Bill Clinton is a master at reading other people’s weaknesses, and he predicted that Trump—who never lets a slight or insult go unpunished—would go ballistic under tough questioning by Fox News anchors during the first Republican president debate. Klein concluded his article by saying that “It’s not surprising, therefore, that Bill Clinton thinks he was the real winner of the first Republican presidential debate.”


The attitude and views of Donald Trump, the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, must be examined by conservatives in the media without fear of angering misguided Trump supporters. The national interest of the United States must be considered first and foremost. As Cliff Kincaid has pointed out that those politicians who have endorsed Trump have an obligation to understand how Trump’s deference to Russian aggression in the Middle East will only increase the flow of immigrants into Europe and the United States with disastrous consequences.

Trump’s views and attitude about Russia and its dictator Vladimir Putin are not only alarming but very dangerous to the security of the nation. By having these views and attitude, Trump shows he is naive and so misinformed that he is unfit to lead the United States.

The fact that Trump is indeed the Kremlin’s candidate should alarm all Americans and Trump’s supporters need to reassess their views on him. Donald Trump supported the election of Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama in 2008. He has written many checks to Hillary Clinton and donated money to many Democratic leaders in Congress

Trump met with his golf partner Bill Clinton prior to running for the Republican Party nomination. This should raise a great deal of suspicion as to his motives. He could be a Clinton plant as Republican Representative Carlos Curbelo from South Florida recently said.

In addition, Trump flip-flopped on the diplomatic relations with Cuba and the embargo. He is in agreement with the shameful and misguided Obama’s Cuba policy. So Trump is both wrong on Russia and on Cuba. Conservative Republicans need to wake up and reject Trump quickly before it is too late. Many Republican analysts and this writer believe that if Trump wins the nomination of the Republican Party, it will be a disaster since the Democratic candidate will win. There is simply too much baggage of Trump that the Democrats will bring up to destroy him in the eyes of voters.

Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Ted Cruz need to question Trump’s misguided views on Russia and Putin in future debates. It is very unfortunate that Trump and his advisors do not understand that Russia is our number one geopolitical enemy!
