Can Trump Save America Like Putin Saved Russia?

Can Trump Save America Like Putin Saved Russia? by The Saker

A crisis faces America:

Option one: Hillary wins.  That’s Obama on steroids, only worse.  Remember that Obama himself was Dubya, only worse.  Of course, Dubya was just Clinton, only worse.  Now the circle is closed.  Back to Clinton.  Except this time around, we have a woman who is deeply insecure, who failed at every single thing that she every tried to do, and who now has a 3 decades long record of disasters and failures.  Even when she had no authority to start a war, she started one (told Bill to bomb the Serbs).  Now she might have that authority.  And she had to stand there, in front of millions of people, and hear Trump tell her “Putin outsmarted you at every step of the way.” Did you see her frozen face when he said that?  Trump is right, Putin did outsmart her and Obama at every step.  The problem is that now, after having a President with an inferiority complex towards Putin (Obama) we will have a President with the very same inferiority complex and a morbid determination to impose a no-fly zone over Russian forces in Syria.  Looking at Hillary, with her ugly short hair and ridiculous pants, I thought to myself “this is a woman who is trying hard to prove that she is every bit as tough and any man” – except of course that she ain’t.  Her record also shows her as being weak, cowardly and with a sense of total impunity.  And now, that evil messianic lunatic (http://thesaker.is/the-messianic-lunatic-in-her-own-words/) with a deep-seated inferiority complex might become Commander in Chief?!  God help us all!

Option two: Trump wins.  Problem: he will be completely alone.  The Neocons have a total, repeat total, control of the Congress, the media, banking and finance, and the courts.  From Clinton to Clinton they have deeply infiltrated the Pentagon, Foggy Bottom, and the three letter agencies.  The Fed is their stronghold.  How in the world will Trump deal with these rabid “ crazies in the basement”?  http://www.opednews.com/articles/opedne_donald_a_080423_leo_strauss_and_the_.htm 

Consider the vicious hate campaign which all these “personalities” (from actors, to politicians to reporters) have unleashed against Trump – they have burned their bridges, they know that they will lose it all if Trump wins (and, if he proves to be an easy pushover his election will make no difference anyway).  The Neocons have nothing to lose and they will fight to the very last one.  What could Trump possibly do to get anything done if he is surrounded by Neocons and their agents of influence?  Bring in an entirely different team?  How is he going to vet them?  His first choice was to take Pence as a VP – a disaster (he is already sabotaging Trump on Syria and the elections outcome).  I *dread* to hear whom Trump will appoint as a White House Chief of Staff as I am afraid that just to appease the Neocons he will appoint some new version of the infamous Rahm Emanuel…  And should Trump prove that he has both principles and courage, the Neocons can always “Dallas” him and replace him with Pence.  Et voilà!

I see only one way out:

How Putin Rescued Russia
When Putin came to power he inherited a Kremlin every bit as corrupt and traitor-infested as the White House nowadays.  As for Russia, she was in pretty much the same sorry shape as the Independent Nazi-run Ukraine.  Russia was also run by bankers and AngloZionist puppets and most Russians led miserable lives.  The big difference is that, unlike what is happening with Trump, the Russian version of the US Neocons never saw the danger coming from Putin.  He was selected by the ruling elites as the representative of the security services to serve along a representative of the big corporate money, Medvedev.  This was a compromise solution between the only two parts of the Russian society which were still functioning, the security services and oil/gas money.  Putin looked like a petty bureaucrat in an ill fitting suit, a shy and somewhat awkward little guy who would present no threat to the powerful oligarchs of the the Seven Bankers running Russia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semibankirschina ).  Except that he turned out to be one of the most formidable rulers in Russia history.  Here is what Putin did as soon as he came to power:

First, he re-established the credibility of the Kremlin with the armed forces and security services by rapidly and effectively crushing the Wahabi insurgency in Chechnia.  This established his personal credibility with the people he would have to rely on to deal with the oligarchs.
