Fly’s recent posts on Russia have me thinking about things Putin has said in recent years, such as comporting oneself in a host country. But first, let’s get this out of the way – Vladimir Putin is a cutthroat ex-KGB agent who has probably killed lots of people using a number of methods and various implements. He’s risen to the top of Russian politics; hooking his homies up while crushing enemies via hydraulic airplane malfunctions and polonium pellets – acts not entirely unexpected of world leaders and their surrogates. Of course as should be the case with any ex-adversary, everything Putin says is subject to scrutiny for ulterior motives and ‘Murica-underminin’ communist tendencies – but can the left please stop with the extreme Russophobia? It’s embarrassing. Some of you sound like fucking retards with your Red Dawn fantasies. Seriously, lay out your scenario for how Putin and Trump getting along translates to invasion – I want to hear it.
And as the froth forms in the corners of your mouth – let’s not forget who has actual shady ties to Russia.
Between 2008 – 2010, Uranium One / UrAsia investors donated $8.65 to the Clinton Foundation.
June 2009, Russian State Nuclear Agency Rosatom (through a subsidiary) takes a 17% stake in Uranium One.
June 2010, Russian State Nuclear Agency Rosatom takes majority ownership of Uranium One, which Hillary Clinton’s State Department signed off on.
June 29th, 2010, Bill Clinton makes $500,000 for a speech in Moscow to a Russian Investment bank that assigned a “buy” rating to Uranium One stock.
January, 2013: Rosatom State Nuclear Agency now owns Uranium one and takes it private.
Moreover, John Podesta’s creepy ass pedo/cannibal art collecting brother Tony runs the Podesta group (founded by John), which made $180,000 lobbying for Uranium One. These donations were made over the same time period that the Clinton Foundation was receiving millions from UrAsia / U1 interests. Tony Podesta also sat on the board (along with senior Russian officials) of a small energy company called Joule. Two months after Podesta joined the board, Joule landed a sweet $35 Million contract from Vladimir Putin’s Rusnano investment fund – which Podesta failed to disclose as required by law. Oh, and before joining the Clinton Campaign, John Podesta transferred 75,000 shares of Joule to his daughter through a shell company with her address. Maybe the optics didn’t look good or something?
So the left can fuck right off with their irrational fears about Trump and Russia until they address all of that bullshit first.
ANYWAY – the whole reason for this post is to suggest that maybe we should consider listening to Putin’s suggestions for respecting the cultures one finds themselves in. In a nutshell: if you move to a country and your beliefs are offensive to the local population, don’t force your lifestyle and ideology on them. Respect where you are, and if you can’t then go back from whence you came.
Very short clip.
And what’s Putin’s answer for the refugee crisis?
The international community needs to rebuild their countries instead of re-homing displaced families in European and American suburbs. Refugees undoubtedly need compassionate support – but the way to fundamentally solve the problem is to restore and strengthen their native governments and institutions and provide assistance rebuilding. The madman.
Russophobes can say what they want, but I find Putin’s ideas preferable to the Neocon plan for more war and fast-tracking refugees into Western suburbs – many of whom are fine with dead Americans. Look, Putin just wants to direct the flow of energy into Europe, he’s not coming to get you. Here’s a leaked email between Colin Powell and top strategic advisor Harlan Ullman discussing the fact that Putin has no intention of moving West [Ullman’s comments highlighted, and source].
