JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: A TRULY FASCINATING NEW BIT IN THE WHOLE TRUMP-AND-THE-RUSSIANS AMERICAN POLITICAL PAGEANT – RAZOR-SHARP QUESTION FROM MEGYN KELLY PUT TO PRESIDENT PUTIN SUGGESTS REAL POSSIBILITIES   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT

‘Kelly asked the Russian leader: “Anytime he [Trump] says anything about you, it is extremely deferential, never a harsh word for you, although if you look at the way he speaks about members of his own party, of his own staff, never mind other political leaders, he frequently, personally insults them. Why do you think he’s so nice to you?”’

A deep and interesting question.

If you glance at Alt-Right Internet sites, you will quickly see that Megyn Kelly is about as hated as Muslims or Mexican migrants or talk of gun control.

She is regularly pounded by abuse, truly nasty abuse.

Well, here’s why, she’s quite smart and can ask tough questions. And that crowd, while they would never say so openly, likes smart women about as much as it likes black players protesting at the NFL.

I had no idea because I do not watch television news anymore. I quit years ago.

And if I did watch it, I would avoid the networks she has worked for because I am familiar with their long history of dishonest journalism and propaganda – Fox, CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, you name it.

But, here and there, even in the most controlled environment, something of substance does slip through, and I think this is an instance.

It is a very interesting hypothesis because, while I always dismiss the tribal rants in the U.S. about Russia and Russian interference and Russian influence over Trump – each of those things having its own American fan club, so to speak – this could well prove a matter of substance.

And, of course, if true, it would go against the interests of the most vociferous Trump supporters, the Alt-Right, the people who daily pour scorn on the Democrats and on the Special Prosecutor for daring to question or suggest anything about Trump’s integrity.

American politics literally are a madhouse today. Americans all shout about Russians, but all for different reasons. None of them has any facts behind the shouts. The only entity to gain from it all has been America’s Deep State which hates Putin because he is such a superb and able opponent.

The Deep State itself may even be protecting Trump because it knows he is vulnerable, and it can extract anything it wants from him. Yes, the pretty obviously phony Trump dossier was much talked of, but that was a political document from the start, paid for by conniving politicians.

But, as I’ve said before, the best propaganda and disinformation contain some truth. Perhaps, just so here. And, interestingly, the ex-spy from Russia, Sergei Skripal, who is said to have worked with the British ex-spy and author of the phony dossier, Christopher Steele, has had a serious attempt on his life, using nerve agent which allows all the press to immediately point at Russia while ignoring so many possibilities

If Megyn Kelly’s suspicion is right, it only points again to the extraordinary ability of Putin to behave as a statesman, not play to the crowd of the moment and to think strategically about what is best for his country.

He’s simply extraordinary.

By the way, for those who might want to better understand Putin’s “new weapons” speech, here is something interesting:
