Some might say that “myth” is a kind word.
No one said ole’ Vlad wasn’t an arse. (Though on occasion an entertaining one.)
It should also be noted that Mr. Putin is a crony of the absolute highest order. Russia is a crony state, perhaps only surpassed by Saudi Arabia and China.
We’ll see how this plays out. My bet is that it won’t the way many Dems and allies hope. Of course one can ALWAYS be wrong.
I have no doubt that Russia doesn’t like Clinton. Almost everyone knows this. Clinton wanted to prop up the Ukraine and to demonize Russia for reacquiring (invading) The Crimea. (After a vote by the people of The Crimea to rejoin Russia. Crimea only became part of The Ukraine during the Khrushchev years.
Sorry Dems. Probably time to start coming to terms with reality.
But who knows? Maybe the boogeyman connection exists. There’s always hope right? And reality is such a pain. Better to live in the fever dream.
McCain is out of line. Way out of line.
The point, Senator, is that we shouldn’t be expanding NATO. The Cold War, is in fact over. And that you would send our troops in theory to protect Montenegro (From what? A Russian backed Serbia we presume?), is insane.
There is absolutely no strategic advantage to bringing Montenegro into NATO. (For us.) What are we afraid of? That the Adriatic Sea is going to fall to the Russian Bear?
Ah, the Podesta brothers. Superlobbyists. Cocktail party swamp creatures of the first order.
We posted on this a while back. Good to see it’s getting renewed attention.
In the article linked above The Observer noted:
…John and Tony Podesta aren’t fooling anyone with this ruse. They are lobbyists for Vladimir Putin’s personal bank of choice, an arm of his Kremlin and its intelligence services. Since the brothers Podesta are presumably destined for very high-level White House jobs next January if the Democrats triumph in November at the polls,
This is a very good essay and it comes to us from the very “liberal” Young Turks outfit.
Seriously “liberal” readers, take a deep breath. Read this article and consider the wisdom within it. One can still be anti-Trump without going off the deep end.

Old school New York progressives like Chuck Schumer got denunciations of Joe McCarthy and “McCarthyism” along with their mother’s milk. It was the epitome of everything they claimed to detest. But that hasn’t stopped Schumer (and Nancy Pelosi) from duplicating McCarthy’s tactics now that it seems expedient to them to do so.
They had better be careful. Will future historians refer to anti-Russian hysteria and related political slander, not as McCarthyism, but as Schumerism or Pelosism?
This is an article that needs to be read.
I have serious issues with Warren Buffett but when he sold The Washington Post to Jeff Bezos I sensed that it was probably a good move for Buffett. Originally Buffett bought The Post because it was the chosen news source within the power circles of Washington DC. In addition to this important factor Washpo had a strong readership based in a wealthy city. Good for ad revenue. There was deep value in the publication. But, to Buffett’s credit he probably sensed the winds shifting (even if he did think Hillary was going to win) and sold The Post when he could before the real serious decline in value became too obvious and too expensive even for someone who wanted to revamp the newspaper for delivery on Kindle devices.
