Panem et circenses. The people want bread and circuses, to be entertained, they want an adrenalin rush, they want to see someone just like them fighting for their ideals, someone who understands them, someone who represents them.

The international relations of the United States of America is masterminded by three apes - one of which is blind, another deaf and the third, dumb.

Fact: The United States and NATO have placed Russia in their cross hairs. Fact: The US press and media continue to report fake news vilifying Russia and its President Vladimir Putin.
