Russia expels American diplomats and intelligence operatives

by Scott Humor In the last days of 2016, one couldn’t do enough to avoid announcements of 35 Russian diplomats being expelled from the US and Russian government-owned property being seized. Every five minutes on every channel, there was footage of people burdened with children and suitcases waiting on wet tarmac for a plane to pick them up, because they weren’t allowed to remain inside the airport building. Also, there

Russia’s Foreign Ministry’s statement on the U.S. counter-sanctions

№ 1420-28-07-2017 28.07.17 Foreign Ministry’s statement   On July 27, the US Congress passed a new bill on tougher anti-Russia sanctions. This measure is further proof of the Unites States’ extremely hostile foreign policy. Hiding behind its sense of superiority, the United States arrogantly ignores the stances and interests of other countries. It is common knowledge that the Russian Federation has been doing everything in its power to improve bilateral

Walmart Declares War on Amazon and other news

  In the U.S., Walmart declared an open war on Amazon by telling trucking companies that it will no longer do business with them if they continue moving goods for Amazon. Recently I had a lovely discussion about who should be called the new anti-Christ. First, anyone who attacks and kills Christians for their faith is an anti-Christ. Second, if  Christianity vanishes from earth, an anti-Christ would come as a messiah

by Scott Humor I find an argument that Putin rules America to be ridiculous. If it were true, the U.S. would have paid most of it sovereign debt while employing millions, and building high speed railroads, best rocket engines, mega bridges and churches; medical care and education would become free, mothers would be getting “maternal capital” to buy homes, and agents of foreign interests with corrupt government officials would be

How Russians would handle ethnic riots

I was recently asked how Russians would handle ethnic riots.  Normally, the regular police would be the first level of defense, but pretty soon the Mobile Special Militia Detachment (OMON) would be called in as they are the regular riot police.  I recently came across a video showing how special riot-suppression forces of the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) train for that kind of events.  Though the OMON deal typically with
