No Minister


I see the nice Mr Putin has described ex President Trump as a ‘extraordinary talented individual’. That should have all the ‘trumpists’ cheering in the aisles and the Democrats saying ‘told you so … they’re birds of a feather’.

At the same time he characterised President Biden as ‘a career (read hack) politician’. More cheering in the aisles from Republicans. On that observation I can but agree.

One suspects the Putin-Biden one-on-one at the G7 will be a little tense with a certain ritualistic posturing and not much more. .

  1. You might also consider how much this will spin up the NeverTrumpers.

    Which would be clever of Putin and possibly just part of his general approach.

    I’ve often speculated that the Russian sources for at least some of the nonsense peddled in the infamous Steele Dossier, were spun by the FSB (basically Russia’s CIA) as part of a quite standard and old-fashioned Russian tactic of dezinformatsiya.

    One of the key objectives of dezinformatsiya is to destabilise opponents by getting them to tear themselves apart. In 2016 what better way of doing that to the USA than to throw out some red meat to the losing team of the recent elections, with “Russian” sources providing tall tales of “Russian collusion” with the winners.

    And all done with plausible deniability, which every intelligence service loves. Just float a small butterfly and watch the Democrat Party and NeverTrumpers spin it up into a Cat-5 hurricane.

    Given Putin’s well known sense of dry, pointed humour he would also have enjoyed the ultimate irony of triggering the US political side that then spent two years screaming about Russian collusion.

    • The USA doesn’t need Russia to sow discord amongst its citizenry, the Americans are very good at doing that to themselves

      CRT for example is a homegrown pathology as are most examples of wokeness,

      Statue toppling is a provocative act no matter how you spin it

      What amazes me is how obsessed the media elites are with Donald Trump, he sure has shaken up the political/media establishment and God bless him for that
