Victory for Putin

Not a big surprise. The Russians have been through such staggering years of social upheaval in 20th century, if they found even a moderate form of stability I would expect them to hang onto it with their dear lives.

MOSCOW (AP) — Vladimir Putin rolled to a crushing re-election victory Sunday for six more years as Russia’s president, and he told cheering supporters in a triumphant but brief speech that “we are bound for success.”

There had been no doubt that Putin would win in his fourth electoral contest; he faced seven minor candidates and his most prominent foe was blocked from the ballot.
His only real challenge was to run up the tally so high that he could claim an indisputable mandate.

With ballots from 80 percent of Russia’s precincts counted by early Monday, Putin had amassed 76 percent of the vote. Observers and individual voters reported widespread violations including ballot-box stuffing and forced voting, but the claims are unlikely to dilute the power of Russia’s longest-serving leader since Josef Stalin.

As the embodiment of Russia’s resurgent power on the world stage, Putin commands immense loyalty among Russians. More than 30,000 crowded into Manezh Square adjacent to the Kremlin in temperatures of minus-10 degrees (15-degrees F) for a victory concert and to await his words.

Putin extolled them for their support — “I am a member of your team” — and he promised them that “we are bound for success.”

Then he left the stage after speaking for less than two minutes, a seemingly perfunctory appearance that encapsulated the election’s predictability.

Since he took the helm in Russia on New Year’s Eve 1999 after Boris Yeltsin’s surprise resignation, Putin’s electoral power has centered on stability, a quality cherished by Russians after the chaotic breakup of the Soviet Union and the “wild capitalism” of the Yeltsin years.

Notice how the mainstream media didn’t hesitate to compare Putin’s long standing position to Stalin’s and claim that forced voting took place? Ironic given that the mainstream media didn’t give a damn about Stalin’s reign of terror during his time in power and came back to the United States claiming communist Russia was a vision of a perfected future. And that they fail to take illegal voting in the United States seriously but apparently forced voting in Russia merits mentioning.

A tweet from Lana Lokteff of Red Ice TV reveals how stiff the competition was and what the opposition had to offer. Given her Slavic roots, I imagine she watched the Russian election with great interest.

Putin winning.

In 2nd, Jewish Communist Pavel Grudinin. Russia has had enough bloodshed & ruin by his fellow Bolsheviks!

In 3rd a ‘Russian nationalist’ who is Jewish.

If a commie won, the west would love Russia!

And where is the lie? Mainstream media journalists loved Russia when they thought communism could be applied here in the U.S. if they just subverted the nation a little more, rocking it to its core piece by piece and degrading everything that made the West superior. But let’s face it, the mainstream media doesn’t hate Putin or Russia because he’s a supposed tyrant. They hate him because he symbolizes the failure of communism. And Russia can never be forgiven for giving up on communism.

I will be the first to admit that I don’t keep up with Russian politics unless the mainstream wants to trash Putin. And why would I? My concerns are about the West. Let Putin take care of Russia and let the Russians decide what is best for Russia. And I guess that’s was really pisses off the mainstream media. The Russians did what they thought was best for their own country, which wasn’t going with another commie.

 

Putin Speaks on Trump Haters

It appears as though Putin is calling out the Dems on their Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Russian President Vladimir Putin says that Americans don’t show enough respect for President Trump.

“Mr. Trump was elected by the American people. And at least for this reason it is necessary to show respect for him, even if you do not agree with some of his positions,” Putin said at the Valdai International Discussion Club when asked what advice he could give his U.S. counterpart, according to state-run Tass Russian News Agency.
Putin said that “disrespect is shown for [Trump]” in the U.S., which he called “regrettable.”

“One can argue but one can’t show disrespect, even not for him personally but for those people who voted for him,” he said. “I believe that the president of the United States does not need any advice because one has to possess certain talent and go through this trial to be elected, even without having the experience of such big administrative work. He [Trump] has done this.”

Putin said that Mr. Trump “won honestly” in the 2016 presidential election.
In September, Putin said that Mr. Trump was “not my bride, and I’m not his groom.” Asked how Russia would feel if Mr. Trump were impeached, Putin said it would be “absolutely wrong” for Russia to discuss U.S. politics.

This comes as Special Counsel Robert Mueller continues the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between Russian officials and the Trump campaign to help Mr. Trump win. 

Have you ever gone onto YouTube and seen those videos of the Russians praising Putin when asked what they think of him? They love him. Nearly every person says so and that their quality of life is so much better than it used to be thanks to his efforts. Now to be fair, they’ve never known anyone else in recent years. So if things could be even better, they wouldn’t be aware of it. But then again… anything is better than what they’ve previously experienced. So if Putin says that Trump needs a little more respect, that says a lot given how his own people measure the quality of his performance.

Russia Paranoia Gets Real

Remember back when Roosevelt placed sanctions against Japan… that didn’t work out very well if I recall. It led to that whole “day of infamy” speech.

Russia will respond harshly to any US measures designed to hurt it, the foreign minister said, a day after Washington told Moscow to close its San Francisco consulate and two other facilities.

Moscow “will have a tough response to the things that come totally out of the blue to hurt us and are driven solely by the desire to spoil our relations with the United States”, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday.

The warning came as Russia said it was weighing a response to the US move that will force it to shutter its San Francisco consulate, as well as its trade missions in Washington, DC and New York City by Saturday.

The spat between the two nuclear-armed powers is another blow to US President Donald Trump’s pledge to try to improve relations with Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

The US ordered the closures in a retaliatory move after the Kremlin demanded Washington slash staff numbers at its Russian diplomatic missions to 455 personnel with a deadline that ran out on Friday.

Russia’s demand came after Congress overwhelmingly approved new sanctions against Russia in July.

“The United States has fully implemented the decision by the government of the Russian Federation to reduce the size of our mission in Russia,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert confirmed in a statement.

Washington said it hoped the two sides “can avoid further retaliatory actions” and improve ties but warned it was “prepared to take further action as necessary and as warranted.”

Russia’s Lavrov avoided blaming the Trump administration outright for the latest tensions and laid the guilt squarely at the door of Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama.

“We are open even now for constructive cooperation where it corresponds to Russian interests,” Lavrov also said on Friday.

“But it takes two to tango and so far our partner is, again and again, doing an individual break dance.”

The dispute began when former US President Barack Obama expelled 35 Russian diplomats in December over allegations of Russian interference in last year’s presidential election.

Lavrov is to meet his US counterpart Rex Tillerson this month in New York.

Meanwhile on Friday, Russia’s foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the FBI planned to search the San Francisco consulate on Saturday and accused US authorities of threatening the “security” of Russian citizens and violating diplomats’ immunity.

“We are talking about invasion into a consulate and the accommodations of diplomatic staff,” Zakharova said in a statement. “The demands of the US authorities create a direct threat to the security of Russian citizens.”

“We express a resolute protest over Washington’s actions that ignore international law,” Zakharova said, adding that: “We reserve the right to take retaliatory measures.”
The State Department has not commented specifically on whether officials plan to search the premises.

But it did say that as of Saturday, access to the consulate will only be granted with State Department permission.

You can talk to me about ISIS and North Korea all day long, but conflict with Russia scares me the most. Why? They’re not a real enemy. It’s fabricated. But if the neocons and dinosaur media keep up their game of trying to convince people that the Russians interfered in our elections all because they’re butthurt over the results (and denying that we do the same to other countries all the time) this is a nuclear power that I’m quite certain we’re not equipped to fight.

And remember, wars have been started over much less.

Russian Teacher Gets Base!

And people wonder why the Democrats hate the Russians…

Russian Teacher Tells Students ‘Liberalism Is Freedom for Subhumans’

It’s a trend in Russian schools that keeps growing. Teachers and lecturers take a break from the class curriculum to berate their students for supporting anti-corruption activist Alexei Navalny. Standing before a classroom, the room’s only adult tells a dozen or so teenagers that they’re ignorant, unpatriotic fools who don’t realize what horrors their civic activism will unleash upon the Russian Federation.

And then one of the students films the incident on a mobile phone, and uploads it to the Internet, where the world gets a glimpse at the reactionary hostility Russian schoolchildren have faced, since the country’s collective consciousness recently realized that young people might be fed up with almost two decades of the same political regime.

The latest footage comes from a high school in Tomsk — the same city where a local university professor recently criticized his students for attending last Sunday’s anti-corruption demonstrations.

Russian Teacher Tells Students ‘Liberalism Is Freedom for Subhumans’

The Tomsk high school teacher, whose identity isn’t being reported, delivered an angry diatribe against “liberalism,” calling his students “fascists,” “national traitors,” and “Anglo Saxon lackeys.”

“I’m older and higher status than you,”  the teacher told the classroom. “You people want freedom, is that it? [The liberals] gave freedom to all kinds of subhumans. Liberalism is freedom for the subhuman who exists at an animal stage of development; it’s when you say some scum is equal to a highly spiritual person. That’s the danger of liberalism! People aren’t equal in their level of development! And when you give equal rights to a five-year-old, a 14-year-old, and an 80-year-old, it is a crime. Liberalism leads humanity to hell.”

Well alrighty then. I think it’s safe to say why lefties in the states hate Russia. They gave up on communism and the toxic idea of equality. The older people (aka: the teacher) are old enough to remember to horrors of extreme liberalism. Apparently their youth need reminding.

Bill Maher goes full retard

When fake news loses their mind…

During an interview with author, “Stone Cold Truth” host, and Trump adviser Roger Stone Jr. on Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” host and comedian Bill Maher argued that it appears that President Donald Trump “and his crime family” were “installed” by the Russians “to loot and destroy” the United States of America.

Maher said, “It looks like Donald Trump and his crime family were installed by Russia to loot and destroy America.”

Maher also asked Stone if it bothered him that “we’re so in touch with the Evil Empire these days?”

How Bill Maher has maintained a highly rated TV show for so many years is beyond me. Trump and his family a crime family? Where do they come up with this nonsense? 

The point isn’t really to prove that Trump is a criminal or that his family desires to loot the wealth of the nation even though Trump has done more to create jobs in a few months than Obama ever did. The point is to spread the thought or idea that Trump isn’t a legitimate president. If this is accomplished, people will believe the best course of action is impeachment. Once again, it’s all about perception. Although, from my side of things, it’s all about Russiaphobia. 

‘Muh Russia’ is the CIA

Muh Russia falls apart.

WikiLeaks’ latest Vault 7 release contains a batch of documents, named ‘Marble’, which detail CIA hacking tactics and how they can misdirect forensic investigators from attributing viruses, trojans and hacking attacks to their agency by inserted code fragments in foreign languages.  The tool was in use as recently as 2016.  Per the WikiLeaks release:

“The source code shows that Marble has test examples not just in English but also in Chinese, Russian, Korean, Arabic and Farsi. This would permit a forensic attribution double game, for example by pretending that the spoken language of the malware creator was not American English, but Chinese, but then showing attempts to conceal the use of Chinese, drawing forensic investigators even more strongly to the wrong conclusion, — but there are other possibilities, such as hiding fake error messages.”

As the left’s Russia narrative disintegrates more and more and the majority of Americans grow weary of even hearing the word “Russia”, Wikileaks drops the ultimate bomb. Proof that CIA can easily change the origin language of coding to make it appear as though foreign nations engaged in a cyber attack against the U.S. for the purpose of swaying the election. As if telling illegals to go vote for HRC wasn’t a way of directly trying to sway the election. 

If anyone tries to throw “muh Russia” in your face, throw Marble from Vault 7 back in their’s. But then again, those who use “muh Russia” as an excuse for the democrat’s failure to get their below average candidate elected probably don’t consider the Wikileaks a huge news source, even though it’s one of the most reliable sources currently in existence. Now if only they would start organizing their email dumps. Fishing through that during the election cycle was tedious to say the least.

But muh Russia!

Muh Russia!! I mean me… but muh Russia!

Former DNC chairwoman and disgraced CNN commentator Donna Brazile has admitted that she relayed confidential questions to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in advance of last year’s primary debate.

Writing in Time magazine, Brazile said she would “forever regret” the decision, which was revealed after WikiLeaks published thousands of emails belonging to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

“When I was asked last July to step in temporarily as D.N.C. Chair,” Brazile explained, “I knew things were amiss. The D.N.C. had been hacked, and thousands of staff emails and documents were plastered on various websites. Staff were harassed, morale suffered, and we lost weeks of planning. Donors were harassed, and fundraising fell off.”

“Then in October, a subsequent release of emails revealed that among the many things I did in my role as a Democratic operative and D.N.C. Vice Chair prior to assuming the interim D.N.C. Chair position was to share potential town hall topics with the Clinton campaign,” Brazil added.

On October 14th, CNN accepted Brazile’s resignation as a network contributor. CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter said Brazile’s collusion with the Clinton campaign “embarrassed all of CNN.”

But in her Time letter, Brazile said “the media narrative” about her being in cahoots with the Clinton campaign “played out just as the Russians had hoped, leaving Sanders supporters understandably angry and sowing division in our ranks.”

The WikiLeaks hack, Brazile said, is evidence that there must be a continued investigation into Russia’s interference in the presidential election.

“Let me be clear,” Brazile wrote, “this is not just the price of politics. This is not normal. We cannot let this stand. Our democratic process itself was attacked and harmed, and all Americans should be concerned.”

Former Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has stated that he has seen no evidence — from the NSA, FBI, and CIA — proving “collusion between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians.”

Donna Brazile played along with the narrative of ‘muh Russia’ hacking into the God-Emperor’s victory in the election and their supposed involvement in the Wikileaks. And not to mention illegal activity. The fact that she deliberately played along with the idea of it being a Russian hack or lie when she knowingly gave HRC the debate questions showcases an act that at least in my mind, is equal to that of treason. The U.S. could never in a million years win at war with Russia. And provoking war with Russia by suggesting that they interfered in our election process puts all American lives in danger. Anyone who goes along with the narrative of ‘muh Russia’ is deliberately placing forth deadly propaganda.
