    (the Russian cuck )
    Embarrassing: This guy wants to run against Putin - 2018



    Alexei Navalny is a Western-media darling, raised in the halls of Yale University.
    In Russia Navalny famously stands against “Putin’s corruption” and often appears on channels such as the BBC and CNN,
    blaming Putin for oligarchs’ wealth, discrediting the Syria effort as “distraction from internal problems”,
    and generally following US State Department cue cards.

    Navalny himself owns million dollar property/ies in Europe, all thanks to the US taxpayer, unbeknownst to them.
    Western media portrays Navalny as Putin’s biggest threat today – however Mr. Navalny enjoys only 1-2% popular support according to polls.
    This is the guy to watch for major disruption leading up to the 2018 Presidential election in Russia.
    Ironically, his incompetency in the public sphere only plays in favour of Putin’s party.

    wish we still had Ron Paul in the house to expose this disgusting charade! Sanctions are an act of war and they have never worked.

    Such a wonderful display of bipartisan cooperation! It's great to see Congress work together. A war with Russia and Iran would unite us all and make America great again! Who's next? North Korea? China? Qatar? Someone call Bill Kristal so he can tell Congress what trick to do next. Good doggies!

    Trump is helping Rand pass his healthcare plan, if you think Trump actually supported RyanCare then you are foolish and you need to go read the threads where I addressed this topic. Rand was talking to Trump 2-3 times a week, and Rand told Trump straight up it wasn't going to pass, it didn't have the votes. Trump knew it wasn't going to pass, so he supported it to make sure it was all Paul Ryan's failure and none of it could be blamed on him. Trump hates Paul Ryan.

    Trump is going to help save Syria, with Russia's help.

    Trump made a good call as a politician. Libertarian souls can bitch all they want about principles and being conned. Trump is going to disappointed again. I have enough hairchest.

    New article by Vanessa Beeley

    21stcenturywire.com
    The Machiavellian Plot to Provoke Saudi Arabia and Qatar into a “Blood Border” War



    (this prob deserves its own thread. It's excellent.)

    Experts all across the world are trying to figure out what’s really fueling the Qatari-Saudi Cold War, but the answer is simple – the US. As it’s always prone to do, Washington is masterfully playing a game of divide and conquer in the Mideast, doing the same thing to its Gulf allies as it did to its North African ones during the theater-wide “Arab Spring” Color Revolutions, except this time pitting them against one another on a state-to-state level as opposed to an intra-state one between the government and some of its citizenry.

    The long-term purpose behind all of this is to usher in Ralph Peters’ 2006 “Blood Borders” blueprint for the “New Middle East”, wherein the Gulf eventually undergoes a geopolitical reengineering just like “Syraq”, Turkey, and the Balkans are slated to do as well. All in all, the fracturing of the region into a myriad of internationally recognized and de-facto statelets is expected to facilitate the prolongation of American hegemony....

    A Russian Homestead Act...

    Russia will give 100,000,000 citizenships

    Vladimir Putin has backed the idea of expanding a program that offers citizens a free hectare of land
    in Russia’s Far East to all of the country’s regions.
    The Russian president made the comment during one of his annual Q&A sessions on Thursday.
    When asked whether the free land program in Russia’s Far East could be expanded to other regions, Putin answered
    “there is enough land in Russia.
    Forty-three million hectares of farmland alone are not used for their intended purpose.
    These are huge, just huge land reserves.”
    God knows they have the real estate.

    In case there was any doubt,
    U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has just confirmed that official U.S. policy towards Iran includes regime change.

    ANTIMEDIA
    Sec. of State Tillerson Admits US Policy of Regime Change for Iran

    During a Wednesday hearing before the House Foreign Affairs Committee regarding the 2018 State Department budget,
    Tillerson was asked whether or not the U.S. supports regime change in Iran.
    He replied affirmatively, stating that U.S. policy is driven by relying on “elements inside of Iran”
    to bring about a “peaceful transition of that government.”
    Designating the Iranian Revolutionary Guard in its entirety as a terrorist organization
    (yunno... the ones liberating entire Christian villages in Syria and defending Lebanon/Christian President Michael Aoun)
    “We continually review the merits both from the standpoint of diplomatic
    but also international consequences of designating the Iranian Revolutionary Guard in its entirety as a terrorist organization.
    As you know, we have designated the Quds [Force].
    Our policy towards Iran is to push back on this hegemony,
    contain their ability to develop obviously nuclear weapons, a
    nd to work toward support of those elements inside of Iran that would lead to a peaceful transition of that government.
    Those elements are there, certainly as we know.”

    Not according to the gov page.

    https://www.senate.gov/legislative/L...n=1&vote=00144

    In Bernie's statement, he says he is supportive of Russian sanctions but not sanctions on Iran- a little fuzzy in what he was actually going to do.

    Very interesting because Lee stated that he did not vote for the sanctions bill & the SLT says that only Lee & Rand voted against it.
