According to the news agency, Beitbart, "A shocking finding from a recent Gallup survey reveals that a staggering 75 percent of Americans say that "corruption is widespread throughout the government." Putin is becoming a cultural icon right here in the United States! In fact, many of us think of him as the "Chuck Norris" of International Politics!
Why does the US government and the US media despise President Putin so much? I thought that the "Cold War" ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union. However, recently President Obama (who won the Nobel Prize for Peace) has authorized the spending of one billion taxpayer dollars on the buildup of NATO weapons and troops in Europe
Ostensibly, liberals both in Russia and abroad tried to disseminate a Nemtsov portrait that was both quaint and quixotic. Their aim was to gain the people's sympathy. They got it wrong; the combined media manufactured imagery about this man did not approach reality; far from it.
Russia's Far East's dynamic growth is a long overdue and foregone conclusion. Despite this fact, the Bloombergs of the world would have us believe the Russians and the Chinese are in some kind of last ditch and frenzied game there. The western think thanks are all "thunk" out apparently
Until recently, the official page of Pravda.Ru on Facebook was developing actively with over 10,000 people joining us on a monthly basis. The page had the official status assigned by the social network. Yet, all is fair in war. Facebook has destroyed the official page of PRavda.Ru that had over 235,000 subscribers
Observing the US elections from the outside, it becomes clear that Hillary Clinton's campaign is starting to look lacklustre, desperate, out of steam, harangued, beleaguered and in short, a "weiner" short of a barbecue. The same adjectives could be applied to Senator Clinton herself. Let us examine her credentials for the position of POTUS.
Lamentably, when it came to some of the worst behavior of the Summer Games Americans took Gold. There was so much to be ashamed of and by such high profile participants that there is little wonder a trope of "the Ugly American" exists or that so much of the world has such low opinions of so many.
In a recent Pravda.Ru article, Banned in America (June 27, 2016), I discussed the Supreme Court's ruling in Utah vs. Strieff-a ruling that Justice Sotomayor accurately and passionately condemned as an unwarranted (and continuing) dilution of the Fourth Amendment's prohibition against "unreasonable searches and seizures"
So many would like this to happen - to see Turkey go, to leave NATO, to break its psychological, political and economic dependency on the West. Now that Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his allies are quarreling with the United States and the EU, there is suddenly great hope that Turkey may thoroughly re-think its position in the world...
Trump has the merit of being a very tough-minded man who has dealt for decades with powerful people to get what he wants, and he has made billions doing it. He is no mere respecter of title or position, but a man who judges by what you actually can do
Living in America as a sane person is becoming an increasingly difficult proposition. Every day seems to progressively become a stroll within the confines of controlled chaos which could erupt at any moment. With increasing frequency incidents occur whose official versions bear little resemblance to objective reality
As the fantasy of Vladimir Putin as "Vlad the Terrible" ratchets up in the US-UK-NATO driven new Cold War, the Independent runs a piece headed: "What lies behind the new Russian threat to Ukraine", the sub-heading is: "Vladimir Putin, his opponents repeatedly point out, has form on this. The war between Russia and Georgia took place in 2008 at the...
It is surprising that out of 300 million people, the United States of America presents Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as the two main candidates for the Presidential election in 2016. But that is a matter for the citizens of the United States of America. Where it becomes our business is in the area of foreign policy...here we have something to...
