"Edgar Hoover and James Jesus Angleton, where are you, now that we really need you?" - Is Trump The Manchurian Candidate, A Mole, Or The Kremlin’s “Useful Idiot”?

Image result for Donald Trump could be a mole

"Edgar Hoover and James Jesus Angleton, where are you, now that we really need you?
Hoover, the long-time FBI Director, and Angleton, the CIA’s legendary Director of Counterintelligence, were they alive today, might be digging at a furious pace to find out if GOP standard bearer Donald Trump could be a mole working in plain view for the Kremlin’s Vladimir Putin... 
So maybe we’re back to the mole angle. Have Americans fathomed how far the Republican Party – the party of national security, the party of duty, honor, country, the party of Joe McCarthy and anti-Kremlin rhetoric– has traveled in this election?"

Is Trump The Manchurian Candidate, A Mole, Or The Kremlin’s “Useful Idiot”?

Is Trump The Manchurian Candidate, A Mole, Or The Kremlin’s “Useful Idiot”?

1 Share
Edgar Hoover and James Jesus Angleton, where are you, now that we really need you?
Hoover, the long-time FBI Director, and Angleton, the CIA’s legendary Director of Counterintelligence, were they alive today, might be digging at a furious pace to find out if GOP standard bearer Donald Trump could be a mole working in plain view for the Kremlin’s Vladimir Putin.
Sound crazy? Not really.
In a plot twist that would cause fiction writers to scratch their heads, presidential candidate Donald Trump has embraced the Russian dictator, viewing him as a more effective leader than President Barack Obama. During the recent Commander-in-Chief forum, Trump pointed out that Putin has an 82% approval rating, much higher than the American president. Hmm. Is there a Gallup or Quinnipiac organization in that country which conducts statistically valid public opinion polling?
With unprecedented obstruction by a determined Republican opposition that has tested our democracy, compared to a Russian government as authoritarian as in Czarist times, what does the term strong leader mean when equating the performance of the heads of state in Washington and Moscow?
Putin certainly doesn’t have to deal with the likes of Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Trey Gowdy, or the extremists and Tea Party types in the congressional Freedom Caucus. He has shown that any individual who disagrees with him might get poisoned as a result of drinking tea in a London hotel, as the late Alexander Litvinenko did, or wind up being shot on a bridge in Moscow, the fate of Boris Nemtsov, the late former deputy prime minister.
Russians drink their tea with some added sugar or honey and are not known to add polonium to the hot beverage, nor are they likely to be met after dinner by two gunmen lurking in the dark.  Then there is the frightening story about the murders of dozens of journalists in Russia, but that’s a topic by itself.
It seems that the word late is the most common descriptor for those most unfortunate souls who, unlike Trump, were not members of the Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin Fan Club.
Yet after Russian invasions of Georgia and Ukraine, you’d think that such a strong or effective leader like Putin would be even more radioactive to the Republican candidate than a glass of tea with polonium and honey in a London hotel, especially after so many violent events have befallen his critics – and neighbors. But Trump, never to be confused with the facts, remains an ardent admirer of the Kremlin strongman, a former 16-year veteran KGB intelligence agent who is not familiar with or does not accept the concept of due process of law. On Trump’s infatuation with Putin and the Kremlin, even Marco Rubio got it right, saying of the Russian strongman that “He’s a thug. He’s a dangerous and bad guy.” And as a strongman, he’s certainly no democrat – small d, mind you.
But Trump also tells his audiences that he has “great judgment.” If he thinks that Putin is an OK guy, it won’t be the first time that we must question, um, his great judgment.
So maybe we’re back to the mole angle. Have Americans fathomed how far the Republican Party – the party of national security, the party of duty, honor, country, the party of Joe McCarthy and anti-Kremlin rhetoric– has traveled in this election?
The aberration known as the Trump campaign has metastasized so much that the New York Timeschimed in on The Donald’s Putin bromance:
“In a fashion that would have been unheard-of for a Republican during or immediately after the Cold War, Mr. Trump has made improved relations with the Kremlin a centerpiece of his candidacy. And Russia has been a subplot of the campaign that Tom Clancy and John le Carre together may have been unable to conjure, complete with the apparent Russian hack of one of America’s political parties, a threat that Russian backers may try to tamper with electronic voting machines, and Mr. Putin’s unsubtle preference for Mr. Trump over Mrs. Clinton.”
But maybe mole hunters Hoover and Angleton can rest easy in their graves. If you are operating as a Kremlin apologist and ally and positioned in clear view, then maybe you don’t fit the classic Cold War definition of a mole, though you would still be undermining our political system.
Nope, mole doesn’t fit. But the Soviets had a better term, useful idiot, to describe those observers who ignored the most brutal aspects of their new worker’s paradise.
That term fits perfectly. Trump has certainly been useful to the Kremlin; he looked the other way as the thuggish Kremlin leader invaded his neighbors and whacked political opponents in a style that Tony Soprano would admire. And anyone who remembers only a fraction of his pronouncements, including the fact that he knows more about ISIS than the generals, also understands statements like that qualify him as an idiot.
Previously, Plunderbund readers learned about Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager. Manafort was an advisor to pro-Russian Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. With Yanukovych’s overthrow in 2014, Putin invaded Eastern Ukraine, annexed Crimea back into the Russian state, and in the process interrupted some of Manafort’s consulting work.  But when many observers thought that Manafort’s recent departure as campaign manager would mean that there would be one less Kremlin-loving sycophant whispering into Trump’s ear, retired Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn stepped in to fill the breach.
Flynn, a former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, has been described as having “an odd affection for Russia and its authoritarian government.” Last year, for example, he attended a banquet in Moscow and was seated close to Putin. This former career military intelligence officer is a paid contributor to RT (Russia Today), a global news channel, and appears regularly on this Kremlin-sponsored network controlled by Putin, himself a former KGB intelligence officer. Incredibly, Trump himself appeared on RT, a state-owned outlet, to attack his own government, its policies and leadership.
When you realize that a candidate for President of the United States and the former director of American military intelligence are favored by the Kremlin, it makes you wonder if either or both of these individuals are modern-day versions of The Manchurian Candidate. Richard Condon, author of the classic book, said rather prophetically that “Paranoics make the great leaders. Resenters make their best instruments.” That statement alone might go a long way in describing the present Trump phenomenon as far as characterizing his audience, but Trump himself is a bit more complex, due to other prevailing idiosyncratic factors.
As we approach the home stretch in this election, an even more disturbing element in the Russian connection with Trump is the evidence that hackers have made attempts to penetrate state election databases in Arizona and Illinois. The incursions were so serious that Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, while visiting Europe last week, issued a clear warning when he said that “We will not ignore attempts to interfere with our democratic processes.”  News of the Russian exploration of voting systems followed earlier reports of Russian penetration of the Democratic National Committee website and of the Hillary Clinton campaign operation.
To add insult to these injuries, Trump earlier encouraged the Russians to help find some of Clinton’s emails.  “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” he said in July.
Since there have been no comparable reports of the Republican National Committee website being hacked, some might assume that since Putin has so much influence with the GOP campaign, with Russian apologist and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort being the best example, his hackers didn’t need to explore the RNC website.
What were we saying earlier about Tom Clancy and John LeCarre? Indeed, how about J. Edgar Hoover and James Jesus Angleton? Yes, spooks and spycraft beget the very ghosts that haunt us as we try to figure out Trump and the Kremlin Connection.
It is hard to imagine how far the Republican Party has traveled – so far, in fact, that the party of Joe McCarthy could at this moment be seen as, to use a McCarthy-era term, a fellow traveler in cahoots with the Russians. Worse yet, in addition to the zika vaccine that is desperately needed in this country, we may need another new vaccine to help Republicans deal with the challenges of the chronic fever they face, caused by a powerful mutation of the hypocrisy and amnesia virus, as it spreads through the legions of Trump true believers. Since everything seems so unbelievable right now, could it be that the hypocrisy and amnesia virus carried by the Trump legions is the 21st century mutation of the dreaded ….. Legionnaire’s disease?
When we examine the what ifs that have been placed before us with Trump, Manafort and Gen. Flynn, with their very favorable posture toward Russia and Putin, we’ve discounted the mole theory since all are operating in plain sight.  That still leaves two other possibilities.
The first:  is Donald Trump a resurrected Manchurian Candidate? We’ll need to do some more digging (moles, get out of the way) before there is additional information to report.
The second: is the Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin Fan Club member, Donald Trump, a useful idiot?
Bingo.

Philippines President Steers New Foreign Policy Path

1 Share
Political analysts and commentators in the Philippines say President Rodrigo Duterte is steering the country’s foreign policy towards a more nationalist narrative, marking a shift from recent Philippine leaders. Further evidence of Duterte's approach came in an address to civil servants Monday as the president called for U.S. military advisers to be withdrawn from Southern Mindanao where Philippine troops have been battling Muslim insurgents. U.S. special forces have been in the region to help with countererrorism operations since 2002. Duterte said as “long as we stay with America, we will never have peace in [Mindanao].  We might as well give up.” He said he has long wanted to review foreign policy, but he could not because he “did not want a rift with America.  But they have to go,” he said, warning if Americans are seen in the region they will be taken hostage or killed.  During the speech, Duterte held aloft photos and accounts of U.S. troops who in 1906 were accused of atrocities against Muslims during a rebellion against American rule. At the summit of Asian leaders last week in Laos, Duterte also referred to the killings during the colonial period, veering off his prepared speech focused on the South China Sea.   A scheduled meeting between U.S. President Barack Obama and Duerte at the ASEAN summit was canceled after Duterte referred to Obama as a "son of a bitch." The Duterte administration has sought to ease tensions with China through talks over the conflicted South China Sea.  Previous Philippine president Benigno Aquino’s administration had taken the dispute to international arbitration at The Hague. Military Agreement The Philippines and the United States have been strengthening military ties in recent years as regional tensions grew over the South China Sea.  In 2014, the two countries signed a new 10-year military agreement.  And in March, prior to Duterte’s election, the United States and the Philippines signed a pact clearing the way for a new permanent U.S. military presence, including a base in Mindanao, the center of the long running Muslim insurgency. The United States also joined other countries and the United Nations in criticizing Duterte's war on drugs policy that has left hundreds dead in extrajudicial killing. Carl Thayer, a defense analyst with the University of New South Wales, says U.S. Special Forces in the southern Philippines have been providing intelligence and some tactical training to the Philippine military, but had been low key. “The U.S. might be concerned that terrorism could revive, but there’s very little you could do, and when the president asks you to go, you’ve got to, because the U.S. has no other choice.  It would threaten the whole position in the Philippines,” Thayer said. So far there are no signs that Duterte is interested in scuttling the broader U.S.-Philippines defense agreement. Philippine Foreign Minister Perfecto Yasay and senior military leaders say Duterte’s comments were not a sign that agreements between the United States and the Philippines would be abrogated. On Monday, a U.S. State Department spokesman said he had seen news reports of Duterte's comments, but had received no official request to withdraw American forces from the counterterror operations. Meanwhile, U.S. officials say Washington remains committed to its long standing alliance with the Philippines, including the fight against terrorist organizations. But several Philippine-based commentators welcomed the “shift away from dependence and subservience to America,” according to The Manila Times.  “If the Philippines is closely aligned with the United States, it risks being dragged into the intensifying big-power rivalry, with potentially grave dangers for national interests and the Filipino people,” the Times commentary added. New Direction Political science professor at the Philippine's University, Dennis Quilala, says Duterte's stance marks a shift from past administrations. "It's quite different from how the Philippines treated the United States before.  What's clear now it that the United States is not the only option for the Philippines.  Other interests are going to be considered," Quilala told VOA, without specifying. Philippine presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella told local media Duterte’s latest comments reflected the government’s new direction towards a more independent foreign policy. Mark Thompson, director of the Southeast Asia Research Center (SEARC) at City University of Hong Kong, says Duterte is pursuing a “nationalist narrative” not evident in recent Filipino administrations.  Thompson says people have long been writing in the Manila papers pressing a nationalist narrative and opposition to the United States. “This nationalist narrative has always been there.  There are a lot of intellectuals and activists in the Philippines that have long believed this and now they have a president finally saying it,” Thompson said.  “Also [Duterte] is not a classical leftist, he’s not a communist, not even a classically social democrat really, but he uses this nationalist narrative,” he said.

Full Disclosure on Candidates’ Health

1 Share
As President Obama’s graying hair suggests, the American presidency is perhaps the most grueling and stressful political job there is. This year, both major party candidates for that job are past the nation’s customary retirement age. And while submitting health records is not a requirement for the job, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump would be doing American voters a great service by furnishing a much clearer picture of their physical health than the abbreviated and sunny reports provided so far.
What brings the health issue to mind, of course, is the video of a stumbling Mrs. Clinton being hustled away from the 9/11 memorial service in New York on Sunday. She reappeared some two hours later to say she felt great. Hours later, her doctor issued a statement saying Mrs. Clinton had been suffering from pneumonia — a diagnosis Mrs. Clinton had received two days earlier and which came as a surprise even to some members of her campaign team.
Mrs. Clinton had coughed her way through multiple appearances last week, insisting it was nothing more than “allergies,” while her campaign pushed back on reporters who noted her coughing, telling one to “get a life.”
Mrs. Clinton has released more information about her health than Mr. Trump has about his. Mr. Trump’s evaluation consists largely of a terse and bizarre report written by Dr. Harold Bornstein, his gastroenterologist, who, after a brief examination, said that if elected Mr. Trump, a self-professed fast-food addict, “will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.” Mrs. Clinton’srecord, consisting mainly of a letter written by her personal physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack, on July 28, 2015, is more than a year old and, while acknowledging her problem with blood clots, could use some updating.
In recent years, presidents and presidential candidates have been more forthcoming about their health than their predecessors. Franklin D. Roosevelt, a polio survivor, was seldom photographed in his wheelchair, and in his last re-election campaign concealed the cardiovascular disease that would kill him within a year. John F. Kennedy struggled with a debilitating back injury and denied he had Addison’s disease, a serious adrenal gland disorder.
By contrast, in 1985 Ronald Reagan openly discussed the colon cancer that required doctors to remove two feet of intestine. In 2008, John McCain gave reporters access to hundreds of pages of records that ended questions about health issues, including melanoma, linked to his Vietnam-era captivity. In 2014, President Obama volunteered that he’d had a persistent sore throat checked out, and the diagnosis was acid reflux. The issue was addressed before anyone asked about it.
Now Americans are deciding between Mr. Trump, who is 70, and Mrs. Clinton, who is 68. Whoever prevails will have to deal with round-the-clock demands, so it seems entirely relevant to inquire about their medical histories and current health.
On Monday, a spokesman for Mrs. Clinton said she would release additional health information in coming days. For his part, Mr. Trump said he would make public “very, very specific” records, a remarkable promise coming from someone who has resolutely stonewalled on his tax returns. Should both candidates honor these pledges, and provide plenty of detail, the winners will be the voters.
