ABC: Russian Media Backs Trump, Questions US Democracy

Russian state-owned media does little to hide its preferences in the U.S. presidential election.

News reports about the race for the White House on Russian television devote most of their time to elaborating on Donald Trump's allegations that Hillary Clinton is corrupt and the election is rigged.

"Clinton has a choice. Either she gets the presidency or she goes behind bars," pro-Kremlin journalist Dmitry Kiselyov said during his flagship Sunday program on the state-controlled Vesti channel. Unlike the anti-establishment Trump, he told viewers, Clinton has the full backing of the U.S. security services, "oligarchic" corporations and the media.
...
"My colleagues at these channels completely back Trump and show all the bad things about Clinton," said Aleksei Venediktov, the editor of liberal Russian radio station Ekho Moskvy.

2. So which part of the United States are you from?

And which local newspaper said something about Hillary wanting to shoot down Russian planes?

5. This is sort of like Trump saying he knows more than the generals.

Only it's Trump supporters telling me what they think the implications of something Hillary said are instead of what she actually said.

9. Done carefully with planning it could save lives and reduce refugee levels.

“I am well aware of the really legitimate concerns you have expressed from both the president and the general,” Clinton responded. “This would not be done just on the first day. This would take a lot of negotiation. It would also take making it clear to the Russians and the Syrians that our purpose here was to provide safe zones on the ground.”

10. You do understand

 

Syria is a sovereign country.
Russia is welcome there.
We are the invaders.
We started the war.
No parties will agree to a no fly zone...especially one enforced by the US.

The aim of our foreign policy is to start wars.

Now,
Do you realize the implications of Hillarys proposed no fly zone over Syria?

11. VIDEO: General Dunford 'No fly zone would require war with Syria and Russia'.

12. As I noted in the other response, she covered this.

No one is talking about a no-fly zone over all of Syria. Here's the quote from her below. Note that it says "safe zones" and says nothing about a no-fly zone over all of Syria as the General is discussing in your video. Two completely different things.

“I am well aware of the really legitimate concerns you have expressed from both the president and the general,” Clinton responded. “This would not be done just on the first day. This would take a lot of negotiation. It would also take making it clear to the Russians and the Syrians that our purpose here was to provide safe zones on the ground.”

13. Where I live has nothing to do with what I have said.

This isn't my local paper but it's lays out "her" prospective:

http://usofarn.com/2015/10/07/hillary-in-iowa-threaten-to-shoot-down-russian-jets-to-get-them-to-agree-to-syrian-no-fly-zone/

Hillary Clinton, said that the US and our coalition partners should threaten to shoot down Russian warplanes over Syria conducting bombing runs on behalf of the Assad regime in order to get Russian President Vladimir Putin to agree to a no-fly zone over Syria.

This she calls diplomacy.

"Yeah, if they thought they (Russians) were going to be left out and that their planes might get shot down if they continue to do Assad’s work,” Clinton said in an interview with the Quad-City Times after the RiverCenter event. “That’s diplomacy. That’s what you do. You raise the cost, you use the leverage. You force them to look at the alternatives.”

I've read a lot of your posts and OPs today....you have earned the adjective of "nasty" right along with Hillary.
I would never say what I just did but you stood out today in just putting out inflammatory verbage. Take a walk...get some fresh air.

14. I'm from Missouri

Not sure which state you are from, but our local paper here in St. Louis doesn't have anything like that in it. Which state are you from? It's ok if you don't want to say, of course, but I don't see why you wouldn't want to.

4. It's not about backing Trump, it's about exposing our sham of a government.

I think the Russians fully expect Hillary to win. Thats why they are exposing her corrupt behavior. With a glorified political wife/crook as President, we won't be able to take the moral high ground about the actions of other world leaders without looking like a huge fucking hypocrite.

6. If Hillary is elected, she's got the world on her side.

Putin becomes the cleptocratic dictator of a country only slightly better than North Korea. If Trump is elected, Putin is suddenly a bigger deal than he has been.

8. Every major country

 

On the planet is preparing for war and choosing sides.
It is not Trump or Russia they are worried about.
