Is revolution in Russia by émigrés abroad possible?
27 April 2016 YEKATERINA SINELSCHIKOVA, RIR
Parliamentary elections are due in Russia in less than six months, prompting not just the Russian government but also its opponents to intensify their activities. Sitting in London, two multi-millionaires are openly supporting calls for a revolution in Russia. Instead of directly taking concrete action, however, they are waiting for the government to make mistakes.

The US

When I become overloaded with wit, wisdom, humor, and intelligence of people around the world, I read conservative American press. To unwind, relax, to have some pure, devote from any mental activities fun.

A conservative take on America. Americans about themselves… in their own words… using American language… Not from the Onion magazine, but REAL conservative source.

“Enjoy your transgender bathrooms. We just lost America”

  • While you were fighting over who should use what bathrooms at Target, we lost our country.
  • Don’t believe me? Then perhaps ALL is lost.
  • The screens around our house in the past couple of weeks stand in stark contrast to what’s in front of them.
  • filled with images of the attacks around the world. Day in and day out, we hear stories about “refugees” pouring into the United States.
  • This time, he talked about the end of times.
  • I’ve always felt great respect for my country and believed that if, God forbid, we ever faced World War III, America would once again triumph.
  • Perhaps my fear, and the anxiety of so many others, is that we were wrong.
  • I’m angered to see that we live in a country where we have gone soft.
  • we demand that the freedom now come in the form of a shelter from hearing words we don’t like.
  • We care more about protecting where someone can take a leak than we care about the safety of our children. OUR CHILDREN.
  • We give out trophies to kids who come in 8th place. Eighth freaking place.
  • We dig up the graves of people who have been dead for a hundred-plus years because they had something to do with the Confederate flag, and that offends someone NOW.
  • we elect a House and Senate full of Republicans who proceed to also place THEIR heads up their collective asses
  • hoping someone else will cover the cost of our skyrocketing and borderline pointless health insurance
  • We’re more worried about the tool than we are the person.
  • We cry out that police are our enemies … and then we beg them to protect us from the likes of ISIS.
  • We send billions of dollars overseas to help the homeless in impoverished and war-torn nations while we cut the funding for our own food banks and homeless programs.
  • but we sit quietly on the sidelines when our men and women protecting our country who make $11/hour aren’t getting paid because Congress is debating their funding.

At the end, this deeply conservative author makes a 180 degrees turn and becomes a socialist: “We’re terribly focused on what matters to us as individuals. We’re so worried about what matters to “me” that we forgot that in order for us to have a “me” … we have to first have an “us.” A safe “us.” A unified “us.”

CrossTalk: Universal Justice?
The American legal system is rapidly transforming itself with the expressed purpose of replacing much of international law. Be it within the realm of trade and banking, criminal prosecutions and even sports. The Americanization of law supplants the United Nations and the sovereignty of every state on the planet.

Origins of the Syrian War, Richard H. Black, Senator of Virginia

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has threatened that the Syrian president will either be removed through a political process or by force.

Jubeir says has said that time may be coming for a Plan B in Syria. He added that if President Bashar Assad does not abide by efforts to establish a truce across Syria, alternatives will need to be looked at. He threatened to intensify military support to militants in Syria. Jubeir made the remarks following another round of International Syria Support Group talks in Vienna. Saudi Arabia and several regional and western countries including the United States have been supporting anti-Damascus groups since the beginning of the crisis in 2011.

‘EU is in process of collapsing on itself’ – Marine Le Pen to RT (EXCLUSIVE)

 

There’s still some spirit in these NATO vassals

Hillary Clinton’s husband reminded to Poland and Hungary that they are “free”  from Soviet Russia thanks to the US fighting for their “freedom” in the Cold War. Now, everyone should be grateful that 30 years later the US keeps fighting this Cold War against Russia, to protect European freedom… from Russia and from its markets, and its natural gas and oil. Remember, Poland and Hungary, you are only truly free when your only trade partner is the US and the US European Command Center and NATO troops are deployed in your countries, and the US missile system are installed near your cities, so Russia could target you back and not the US cities, which are exceptional.

Democracy is Hillary! Hillary is the only true democracy!
