Russians Take To The Streets In Nationwide Anti-Government Protests-

 

 

"...thousands of Russians took to the streets of Moscow and other cities in the biggest anti-government protests in years.

In Moscow, police arrested hundreds of demonstrators, including prominent Russian opposition leader and anti-corruption activist, Alexei Navalny, who orchestrated the uprising.

 

The crowds gathered to protest government corruption,....

 

we had 10,000 in St. Petersburg, the estimates here in Moscow are about 20,000,"...

 

Following criticism of the Trump administration's silence on Sunday's crack down, the State Department condemned the arrests by evening, calling the move "an affront to core democratic values."....

"Trump understands he’s in trouble on the Russia question and that despite what you may think at the moment, his counterattack was highly effective.

As we ought to have figured out by now, the president has zero command of facts and no ability for rational argument. What he does possess, like the Shadow — a radio-serial crimefighter Trump may recall from early childhood — is “the power to cloud men’s minds.” When he sees his enemies marshaling actual evidence against him, Trump has a remarkable ability to use rhetoric, imagination and lies to turn that evidence upside down or drain it of meaning and significance.....

This past election has brought to the attention of 1 phobia and created a new one.

 

Chaetophobia.... is a rare phobia which causes an irrational, abnormal and persistent fear of hair.

 

ccb08583ccf7bfa20d71ef704324be9c.jpg

 

 

 

New one....Russophobia.....Fear of anything Russian related, they are inside every net, domain, server.  A Russian hiding behind every bush, tree, shrub, building, etc.  Anyone simply talking to a Russian.

This might be inter related.

 

Arkoudaphobia.....The fear of bears or better медведь.

Trump has made a steady practise of deleting and destroying evidence in his various law suits throughout his entire career.  That has been well looked at.  Then he crucified Clinton for doing the same.

What I find curious is that as with most pathological liars whatever they crow about they are almost certainly more guilty of themselves.

Recall Trump's knee-jerk debate response to Hillary Clinton on the subject of Putin ..."Oh no, your'e the puppet, you're the puppet."  That response was so ridiculously untrue I believe it was an insight into Trump's real guilt.

Not to mention still hiding his income tax returns.

"staffers in the Trump Administration are racing to “purge their cellphones” of relevant information as the threat of a subpoena by one of the three investigations into the Trump team’s potentially treasonous collusion with the Russian Federation grows with each passing day....

 

These desperate acts are only plunging these staffers deeper into hot water, since the White House’s legal counsel [had] ordered all staff members to preserve “any materials that could be connected to Russian interference in the 2016 election and other related investigations,” as reported by the Associated Press. ...

 

...no less than six months after President Trump and his surrogates falsely accused Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for deleting emails off of her private email server to avoid scrutiny from the FBI...

 

http://occupydemocra...ussian-treason/

 

 

If any one who destroys any electronic evidence, or who knowingly fails to preserve evidence, may face 20 years in prison.  The federal criminal code at 18 U.S.C.A. 1873 defines the crime of Obstruction of Justice.  Its broadest relevant subsection, 18 U.S. Code § 1519, states the following in the broadest but starkest terms:  

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

18 U.S. Code § 1519 - Destruction, alteration, or falsification of records in Federal investigations and bankruptcy

Whoever knowingly alters, destroys, mutilates, conceals, covers up, falsifies, or makes a false entry in any record, document, or tangible object with the intent to impede, obstruct, or influence the investigation or proper administration of any matter within the jurisdiction of any department or agency of the United States or any case filed under title 11, or in relation to or contemplation of any such matter or case, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Got to thinking it be sad if someone got 20 years because they deleted something that may have not been illegal within itself.  People do stupid things when in Panic Mode..

"Yesterday, documents surfaced showing that former Trump Campaign Chair Paul Manafort had received at least $750,000 in illegal payments from former Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych, who is about to be tried for treason in absentia in Ukraine.

 

Today, Denis Voronenkov was shot to death in the streets of Kiev in broad daylight, just a few weeks after he said he would testify against Yanukovych and his cohorts — Manafort included.

 

This is only the latest in a list of Russian dissidents to be murdered or die under mysterious circumstances since the U.S. Election. The timing of Voronenkov’s murder in conjunction with the latest revelations about Manafort — a man he was likely to incriminate — makes this latest tragedy all the more suspect....

 

The assassin, who died in the hospital soon after, was a soldier in Russia’s National Guard and carried “a certificate proving his combatant status” — fueling speculation that the assassination order came from the highest reaches of the Russian government....

Numbskull Nunes has apologized to his committee and admitted that there is no evidence of wiretapping of Trump Tower. So, it boils down to they are furious with the amount of conversations that were picked up by Trump associates with nefarious foreign characters. The outrage!

Nunes is nothing but a Four Flushing Flunky. I wonder if Trump gave him money upon the receipt of that bogus information. He may not have gotten any money, but I bet he was expecting something in return.

For now he'll just have to settle for all that scrambled egg on his face.

"There, indeed, was an FBI wiretap involving Russians at Trump Tower.

 

But it was not placed at the behest of Barack Obama and the target was not the Trump campaign of 2016.

For two years ending in 2013, the FBI had a court-approved warrant to eavesdrop on a sophisticated Russian organized crime money laundering network that operated out of unit 63A in Trump Tower.....

 

Trump-branded developments catered to large numbers of Russian buyers, including several who had brushes with the law. Russian buyers were particularly drawn to Trump licensed condo towers in Hollywood and Sunny Isles, Florida.....

I think things are looking pretty bad for Comrade Trump.  I can't wait for his campaign event tonight and to hear the meltdown.

The republicans are doing their very best to make today's hearing all about leaks and nothing but.  They don't seem concerned one bit about Trump and the Russians.

The Berlin Wall was built post Stalin, but

I'm guessing he would have approved.

It is doubtful that anyone who ruled the Soviet Union was a true communist.  They were power hungry dictators.  The same is true for those that served them.  Just as most Republicans in the US are actually opposed to a "republican" form of government.

This would be especially true for the KGB and other types of secret police organizations.  They were not attracted to the jobs and successful in them because of a devotion to a political philosophy.  They were successful because the organizations capitalized on mean, evil and greedy personality traits.

 

As for why they want dominance over Eastern Europe, a barrier between them and Western Europe is part of it.  Two invasions by Germany and one by France still haunt them.  Based on American actions in the 50's and 60's, not a lot of trust of us either.

 

The earliest Russian Czars wanted more which is how Russia became as large as it did.  The Soviets merely continued this philosophy.  Think USA and Manifest Destiny and taking California and the West from Mexico.  Running Spain out of Florida and then later Puerto Rico, etc.  Pressuring England to sign over Northwest to US.  Not to mention the Native Americans.

 

Putin wants to restore Russia to the glory it had when it was its largest.  Remember, Russia today is much smaller than the Soviet Union for which Putin worked so diligently.

It is called Empire Building.  For Putin, step one is domination and step two is reincorporation into the Motherland.

Poland was once a part of Russia, as were a lot of other now independent nations.

 

The Berlin Wall was erected to keep people in the Soviet Block from escaping to West Berlin and then to Western Europe.  It was a wall in Berlin, but a fence or walls pretty along the entire border.

 

Don't ignore that "Nationalism" and threats from an enemy are two of the principles bad leaders use to distract the people from how bad things are in the country.  Also permits them to do many illegal or borderline illegal things to accomplish their personal goals and the goals of those who support them.
