Russia Protests Raise Pressure on Putin
Around 1,000 people were detained on Saturday in Moscow; the opposition plans more demonstrations next weekend


https://www.wsj.com/articles/hundreds-a ... 1564845734

“Putin fears the emergence of new leaders,” former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul wrote on Twitter. “That’s why he arrests them rather than allow them compete in elections and then serve in even the most marginal of offices.”

Andrei Kolesnikov, chair of the Russian Domestic Politics and Political Institutions Program at the Carnegie Moscow Center, said the authorities’ response to the protests are sign that the rallies are making the Kremlin nervous, even if they are not yet a challenge to Mr. Putin’s rule.

Authorities are acting rationally, using “repression in order to intimidate [opponents in Moscow] and to demoralize the opposition,” he said.

"It’s easy for us to place it all on Donald Trump’s shoulders... This is us. And if we’re going to get past this we can’t blame it on him. He's a manifestation of the ugliness that’s in us." @esglaude

We can 150% blame GOP politicians actually. And he knows it. And it's because they are OWNED by the NRA.

GOP Politicians Are Much More Resistant To Gun Control Than GOP Voters Are

Apparently Progressive Democrats like AOC agree with @esglaude. Dump the right wing dems! They are holding us down.

Sorry. Somehow I thought cktbreaker was referring to you can't blame Trump (and the GOP) on gun issues. But that wasn't about guns at all.

I think Adam Serwer of the Atlantic really summed up Dump and his MAGAts the best...

The Cruelty Is the Point
President Trump and his supporters find community by rejoicing in the suffering of those they hate and fear.


https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archi ... nt/572104/

Trump’s only true skill is the con; his only fundamental belief is that the United States is the birthright of straight, white, Christian men, and his only real, authentic pleasure is in cruelty. It is that cruelty, and the delight it brings them, that binds his most ardent supporters to him, in shared scorn for those they hate and fear: immigrants, black voters, feminists, and treasonous white men who empathize with any of those who would steal their birthright. The president’s ability to execute that cruelty through word and deed makes them euphoric. It makes them feel good, it makes them feel proud, it makes them feel happy, it makes them feel united. And as long as he makes them feel that way, they will let him get away with anything, no matter what it costs them.

Here's an idea....

Instead of drymounting around all over the world, causing death and suffering whilst trying to remove democratically elected leaders on the other side of the world in order to suit your corporations, why not focus on some Regime Change at home???

Your Empire is dying. These are death throes. Your plundering of resources is coming to an end.
For example:
The people of Venezuela and its military fought to overturn the coup against Chavez. Thus far they have stopped your fuckery against Madura, with Russia helping out.

In Syria, Russia stepped in against your proxy head chopper friends you now favour, preventing the overthrow.


The smart money says both Russia and China will protect your fuckery against Iran.

Note the oil involved in those three countries, yet the donkeys here ( gorkie?) swear it ain't about the oil, but about humanitarianism...ffs.

PUSHBACK.

Sanctions being slapped on countries that refuse to kowtow to US imperialism are now moving away from the US dollar to trade, using their own currencies instead.

Russia and China are closer now than ever before, due to US behaviour towards them. You've created an adversary that you never formally had...

So, if there's nothing for American Capitalism to plunder and steal, what then?

This is where you are heading.

Seen the gold price??!!!

Having powerful adversaries that prevent your stealing of other countries resources is going to drymount your country up, as Empire struggles to feed the beast.

Your Plunder Economics is no more...and with that an uncertain future.

Edit:
Bernie just finished on the JRE
