East To Russia


Former Republican who followed on-line extreme right-wing groups and "how these groups were organizing, preparing for, threatening and intending to engage in violence" warns:

I would not have believed the following quote were it not from a prominent historian


"What is extraordinarily important is this- who will count the vote" is awfully close to "Sometimes the vote counter is more important than the candidate." Even "to get a lot tougher and smarter" bears a relationship to "and how." 

There is a little controversy over whether Stalin actually uttered these words. But they have been attributed to him, and it's quite plausible that Trump would have learned of them.

Donald Trump reportedly kept "My New Order," a compilation of speeches of Adolph Hitler, by his bed.  If the former President is a student of those of the German president, it would be unsurprising were he to become somewhat of a student of the Russian premier's speeches.  It's a natural progression, regression, or lateral move.

The exact tactics Trump plans to employ are yet to be discerned. His inspiration is less of a mystery.
