John McCain: Rand Paul ‘Is Now Working for Vladimir Putin’

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?

Russia’s Largest Bank Confirms Hiring Podesta Group To Lobby For Ending Sanctions

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,

Chuck Schumer Picks Up The Fallen Flag of McCarthyism

Image: Gateway Pundit

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?

A declining Washington Post freaks out, whines, everyone who doesn’t agree with its heavily biased coverage is a Russian plant

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.

UPDATE: Russians, uranium, $130 million, and the Clinton Foundation

In a post dated April 24th 2015 we quoted The New York Times on the Uranium One uranium deal that was executed with the permission of the Department of State.

We quoted;

As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation.

Kremlin Gets Flashback of Soviet Collapse in Brexit Fallout

As we said in an earlier post, the guys running the show in Eastern Bloc countries weren’t happy when the Berlin Wall came down. Likewise the apparatchiks of various sorts deeply embedded in and often reliant on the European Union system have had heart attacks in the face of Brexit.

Brexit is not on par with the collapse of communism however. The end of the Cold War was more than surprising, or even mind blowing,

Head of Hungarian central bank “has funneled the equivalent of almost $1 billion to six foundations he set up”

$1 billion is a lot of money, even in the United States. In tiny Hungary it is however a massive sum. This, according to a report from Bloomberg is the amount the head of the Hungarian central bank has siphoned off for himself, friends, and allies in just 3 years. It appears to be a brazen and Putinesque (not a coincidence) act of crony capitalism. And Hungary is not the wealthiest country in Europe either.

Panama Papers Reveal Clinton’s Kremlin Connection

The Podestas revel in their insider super lobbyist image. They are the quintessential connected Washington big shots. That the Podesta group would lobby for Vladimir Putin’s favorite bank, which is partially owned by the central bank of Russia (it is the largest shareholder), and which operates as a de facto spy agency (according to the article) is a little bizarre.
