For the last 70 years, through diplomacy, foreign aid, and subterfuge, America has propped up weak foreign leaders and rabble-rousers to destabilize gov'ts who were interfered with our foreign policy objectives.

The CIA practically wrote the handbook on sowing discord amongst our enemies by funding the opposition while trying to sabotage their enemies. We chose parties we could control, who we could bribe and cajole into being puppets for our own benefit. We provided them with the resources and backing to do more than they could do on their own, and in return, all we asked for was deference.

And here comes Donald Trump, with so many bankruptcies and underperforming projects that he's pretty much a pariah for Western banks; with a failing empire being propped up by a steady flow on Russian capital.

And here comes Donald Trump, singing the praises of Vladimir Putin and his style of leadership, while Putin sics his dogs on Trump's political enemies. Here comes Donald ready to break alliances and partnerships we've forged to contain his benefactor.

I never thought I'd see the day that America was the victim of a foreign propaganda campaign, but lo and behold, here we are. I guess it was only a matter of time before the tables were turned.

Hillary is the criminal with the deleted emails and an unsecured server.

From Twitter: Soliciting copies of e-mails that a politician deleted in order to escape prosecution is the literal definition of "treason." Look it up!

This is so wrong on so many levels. Morally wrong, ethically wrong and just plain shocking. Putin could be another Hitler easily. He's meddled in other elections in Europe, such as supporting the extremist right wingers in France. He would love the EU to break up so he could bully all of the countries--he's power crazed.

The fact that that the Russian dictator thug who has murdered opposition members and journalists among others can inject himself and possible influence the election of the US is, frankly horrifying. Being encouraged by Trump is equally horrifying.

If his buddy Trump was in office, we can probably kiss the entire world good-bye. Trump fits right in with Putin and Kim Jong Un. The dictator troika. They would destroy the entire world. The three of them would be worse than just Hitler and Mussolini.

The DNC wrote some really offensive emails. The leadership of the Democrat Party. On top of that, they sandbagged Bernie.

Wikileaks may have hacked Hill's basement server containing classified emails. That ain't Trump's fault.

I'm not saying it's Trump's fault that the DNC got hacked. I'm just pointing out that the game we've played with the domestic politics of many other countries over the years is being played again, but this time America is the board.

Forged to contain his benefactor? Yeah right. You mean like the way weakling Obama has stood up to Putin?
