Spar Wars with Putin bringing America’s biggest clowns out on the world stage || By Judi McLeod

Proletariat to Vladimir Putin: Banning U.S. Senators and officials from visiting Russia, including Sen. ‘Little Dick’ Durbin is a colossal waste of time.  Obama bought-and-paid-for senators and officials are far too busy working feverishly to bring down the United States of America to bother visiting Russia.

If it’s a socialist state you dream of for America, Obama’s already doing the job.

Since 2008, U.S. senators and Obama officials have had their very own ‘Land of the Czars’,  and the state of its health is getting more worrisome by day.

Holding world attention enrapt,  the ‘Spar Wars’ between America and Russia is mostly garish window dressing.

Were it not for Obama’s metrosexual signature, we could write Spar Wars off as “Boys will be boys”.

Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin may have hit the nail on the head when he accused President Barack Obama of being a “prankster”.  “I think some prankster prepared the draft of this Act of the US president.” (Twitter)

Obama is freezing the non-existing American assets of 11 Russian and Ukrainian officials,  banning them from using U.S. banks and banning their travel to the U.S.

Christianity already being forced out in Russian-controlled Crimea || By Judi McLeod

Don’t let media pictures of the cross ever present on the bare chest of Vladimir Putin fool you that he’s really a Christian.   

Don’t allow Putin’s contention that “America is Godless and has turned away from Christian values,” to confuse.

“In his state of the Nation speech last month, Putin asserted that, “Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots including Christian values…Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan.” Russia has adopted new laws that ban homosexual propaganda and criminalizes the insulting of religious sensibilities.” (Breitbart, Jan. 29, 2014)

A bare two months later, ‘Christian’ Putin has returned the brutal heel of the Marxism-Leninism ideology which made atheism the official doctrine of the Soviet Union down on the people of Russia’s newly-acquired Crimea.

Throughout the 70-year history of the Soviet Union, Christianity was suppressed and persecuted uninterrupted until Pope John Paul 11, President Ronald Reagan and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher brought down the Iron Curtain and Soviet Communism.

“The state was committed to the destruction of religion, and destroyed churches, mosques and temples, ridiculed, harassed and executed religious leaders, flooded the schools and media with atheistic teachings, and generally promoted atheism as the truth that society should accept. The total number of Christian victims of Soviet state atheist policies, has been estimated to range between 12-20 millions.” (Wikipedia)

The Soviet Union didn’t change when it became plain Mother Russia.  The KGB tiger called Putin has never changed his stripes.

With yesterday’s cheers still resounding from the overwhelming 96.77 percent for Crimea to rejoin Russia and 2.51 percent against still resounding, the biggest victim of the referendum is Christianity—already being forced out.

“Earlier this month, Ukrainian Greek Catholic priests received oral and written threats warning them to leave Crimea.” (Vatican News)

Ukraine Conflict: Putin Strengthens His True Enemies || by Benjamin Bidder

The Russian invasion of Crimea has the potential to set off an explosive set of events within Ukraine.

Although Russia has espoused moral justifications for its invasion of Crimea, President Vladimir Putin’s move is all about geopolitics. His short-sighted logic, however, could bring Ukrainian nationalists to power — and create a whole new set of problems.

Whenever Russia pursues its own interest against the will of the international community, a dictum by Czar Alexander III springs to mind. Russia, he said, has only two allies: its army and its navy. If you can believe the Kremlin’s propagandists, however, a new, unexpected ally has come to Moscow’s defense: the Western press. According to the website “Sputnik and Pogrom,” the Western media have “begun to support the Russian Federation’s course of action in the Crimean crisis.”

 

The statement has little basis in reality, but it has nevertheless been shared thousands of times on Russian social media networks. European reporters, it is said, have finally figured out that hardboiled neo-fascists and not freedom fighters were behind the takeover of Independence Square.

This has been the Russian propaganda line for months — that the West is ignoring the hordes of neo-Nazis bullying valiant Ukrainian policemen. The role of the violent nationalists, however, has been widely covered in the international press, and it was police brutality — and Yanukovych’s attempts, supported by Moscow, to outlast the protests — that actually radicalized Independence Square. When students were beaten down on the night of November 30, they had neither helmets, nor batons, nor firearms.

Russia’s Ridiculous Justification

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine, Ukraine (AP) — Masked gunmen stormed the parliament of Ukraine’s strategic Crimea region as Russian fighter jets screamed above the border, while Ukraine’s newly formed government pledged to prevent a national breakup with the strong backing of the West – the stirrings of a potentially dangerous confrontation reminiscent of Cold War brinksmanship.

Moscow reportedly granted shelter to Ukraine’s fugitive president, Viktor Yanukovych, who was said to be holed up in a luxury government retreat and to have scheduled a news conference Friday near the Ukrainian border. As gunmen wearing unmarked camouflage uniforms erected a sign reading “Crimea is Russia” in the provincial capital, Ukraine’s interim prime minister declared that the Black Sea territory “has been and will be a part of Ukraine.”

The escalating conflict sent Ukraine’s finances plummeting further, prompting Western leaders to prepare an emergency financial package.

Yanukovych, whose approach to Moscow set off three months of pro-Europe protests, finally fled by helicopter last weekend as his allies deserted him. The humiliating exit was a severe blow to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who had been celebrating his signature Olympics even as Ukraine’s drama came to a head. The Russian leader has long dreamt of pulling Ukraine – a huge country of 46 million people considered the cradle of Russian civilization – closer into Moscow’s orbit.
