Is Trump Putin’s Puppet? Not So Comical

Putin and Donald Trump in Soviet style

A Russian controlled puppet placed in the White house was the stuff of Cold war paranoia and pop culture

 

Joseph Stalin must be grinning in his grave.

Putin has done what the Soviets long dreamed of accomplishing.

Once the stuff of cold war paranoia, spy novels and movies, the Russians have infiltrated our democracy and put a puppet in the White House.

Trump as Putins Puppet

After today’s summit in Helsinki, Trump has made it clear  who is pulling his strings – Donald Trump belongs to Moscow. Not only has Trump divided the U.S. and Western Europe, the President of the United States sided with Russia against  his own intel agencies when it came to proof of Russia’s meddling in our elections and their attempts to undermine American democracy.

Donald Trump: “My people came to me, (DNI) Dan Coats came to me and some others, they said they think it’s Russia. I have President Putin; he just said it’s not Russia.

I will say this:  I don’t see any reason why it would be.”

The accusations of Russia’s interference in our presidential election has sent a big chill down my spine, as childhood memories of the Cold War are quickly defrosted. The terror of the Red Menace infiltrating our country is brought back and is chillingly familiar.

It is a familiar cold war doomsday scenario brought into the 21st century.

Red Menace

The fear of Russian intervention, not only militarily but politically was a common thread throughout my mid-century childhood. American’s were convinced hidden communists were lurking everywhere, secretly infiltrating our government, including our very own state department.

Like those two scheming cartoon villains Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale those no goodnick spies carrying out Fearless Leaders secret evil plots, Russians were sinister, sneaky plotters carrying out covert actions  just waiting to overthrow a government…including our own.

Russian Menace

Is This Tomorrow Comic Russia control

Now that evidence mounts that the  Russians stole the White House  for Donald Trump, the candidate handpicked by Comrade Putin, it is a scenario eerily straight out of the any number of post war cautionary tales.

Even the techniques they used, misinformation and manipulation of the press, creating divisiveness while pitting citizens against each other to weaken us,  are the exact same devices we were warned  were favored by  the Soviets  to undermine us:

“His aim is to make you hate your fellow-man and keep you blind to the important things in life. He wants to make you forget the importance of your right to vote as you please—to say what you please—to go where you please.”

 

Is This Tomorrow?

One famous 1947 comic book entitled “Is This Tomorrow – America Under Communism” was an over the top tale typical of the time  alerting us of the dangers of a Russian takeover. Over 48 colorful pages it illustrated   just how easy it would be for the Reds to take over the U.S.

File this under Truth is Stranger Than Comic Fiction Department.

It Can’t Happen Here:

The comic opens with a dire warning to the young reader:

Taking their orders directly from Moscow, the story revolves around a group of American Communists led by  a man named “Jones” and his propaganda advisor “Brown” a sinister Steve Bannon character who explains how they will manipulate the American media as a precursor to their Kremlin approved takeover of the U.S.

Destabilizing journalism as a check on the power of government is quickly implemented. Anyone critical is swiftly punished and unfavorable newspapers are denied newsprint until they agree with the party line. Telephone system and radio network are now nationalized.

INCREDIBLE?

“Did our story seem incredible? It is unbelievable—that such a small group could ever dream of enforcing its will upon the majority. But remember that a group for smaller than the number of Communists living and working in America today seized control of Russia in 1917.

No one can refuse to believe what he knows to be true. And we do know that every method shown in this presentation has been used by the Communists in their rise to power in other countries. Starvation, murder, slavery, force—those are the tools the Communists use to carry out the doctrine of Communism.

The Communists are preparing to seize control of America in any crisis. This crisis, real or contrived—will be there signal to move in… and make their bid for power.

This crisis might begin with a flood in Pennsylvania—a drought in the Middle West. Or it might begin with a general strike in some of our large industrial cities—New York—Detroit—Chicago—San Francisco.

It happened in Poland, Hungary, Yugoslavia, and country after country, the world over.

WHERE DO YOU COME IN?

You are the one with whom the Communist is struggling right now. His aim is to make you hate your fellow man and keep you blind to the important things in life. He wants to make you forget the importance of your right to vote as you please—to say what you please—to go where you please—to worship as you please. The Communist really wants you to forget all your rights to individual freedom and liberty.

But you cannot assume your individual rights without assuming individual responsibility.

If you want to keep on living, you must know who the Communists are—and their methods of working. You must recognize the Communist Party line in action and separate Communist propaganda from the factual news of the day.

You are on the defensive in this battle. You owe it to yourself to know all about the invader. He knows more about you than you suspect.

Laughable  for its inplausibility, it’s not quite so funny now.

Are the Russians coming? It look like they are already here.

  1. It is well-documented that Trump has been laundering money for the Russian mob since the 1980s, a role his father played for the Sicilian mafia in the 1940s and 50s. But Putin seems to have more of a hold on Trump than just an illegal business arrangement. Perhaps Trump committed a terrible crime that Putin has documented, but we’ll probably never know.

  2. I watched very carefully that joint press conference yesterday. Not once did I see Putin’s lips move when Trump was speaking, Putin must be one of the best ventriloquists ever – or maybe that extra-long private meeting gave them time for a rehearsal. In any event, Trump makes a far better puppet than President.

    • It’s quite startling. These were warnings that were popularly spread in in all forms of popular culture that in retrospect we laughed at all these years and have come home to haunt us

  6. You make me sad. You actually believe the propaganda from the Left! I have been studying Marxist-Communism and the Frankfurt School “disinformation” tactics. You are 100% wrong about Trump. Putin wanted Hillary Clinton to win! Trump is NOT a globalist, he is NOT a part of the New World Order – the Bilderbergs, the Rockefellers, et al. People like yourself are gullible to the Left’s propaganda; they are counting on you to be uninformed.

    The truth about communism’s New World Order has been hidden from Americans since the 1917 Bolshevik revolution. The NWO is explained in this great 1971 book by Gary Allen, “No One Dare Call It Conspiracy.”

    “Disinformation: the secret strategy to destroy the West” is a serious documentary film on YouTube that is eye-opening. Must watch it!

    KGB Defector Lecture on YouTube: “Yuri Bezmenov: Psychological Warfare Subversion & Control of Western Society.”

    “The Devil’s Pleasure Palace” by Michael Walsh. Book gives details of the damage done to Americans by the Frankfurt School.

    The recent censoring of conservative talk by YouTube is directly related to disinformation: you are not going to know what is really happening. You will remain dumb. How can you make decisions about our president based solely on body language and innuendo? I’m embarrassed for you!

    Thanks for reading. I’m a former Democrat and so is my husband.
