Putin 2012


This is really not a good week for American conservatives. Cliven Bundy has revealed himself as a seething racist and Vladimir Putin has taken steps to stifle the Russian internet. Yes, the Right's heroes are showing their inner core. 

I wonder if Vladimir Putin is all upset about Edward. (I should have known better to ask that question) Snowden's question about Russian monitoring communication for its citizens.  do you think he is angry? How about Putin shutting-down seriously restricting the Russian internet on a piece by piece basis?  


On a much more serous basis. Why did Germany Chancellor Merkel say to President Obama, Putin seemed 'in another world'


Why are Russian security operatives occupying territories outside the boarders of their motherland? Why can you imagine the mercenaries wear masks? 

Silencing dissent? Do you really think it is within the realm of sanity to think Putin will give-up the leadership of Russia when his term of office expires?  

Russia blocks internet sites of Putin critics
MOSCOW Thu Mar 13, 2014 4:04pm EDT

(Reuters) - Russia blocked access to the internet sites of prominent Kremlin foes Alexei Navalny and Garry Kasparov on Thursday under a new law critics say is designed to silence dissent in President Vladimir Putin's third term.

The prosecutor general's office ordered Russian internet providers to block Navalny's blog, chess champion and Putin critic Kasparov's internet newspaper and two other sites, grani.ru and ej.ru, state regulator Roskomnadzor said.


The move was the latest evidence of what government opponents see as a crackdown on independent media and particularly the internet, a platform for dissenting views in a nation where state channels dominate the airwaves.


Ej.ru editor Alexander Ryklin called it "monstrous" and a "direct violation of all the principles of freedom of speech," radio station Ekho Moskvy reported. He said he did not know why the site was blocked.

The blockages will increase concern that Putin is seeking to tighten control over Russian society as he faces off against the United States and European Union in a bitter dispute over the future of Ukraine.

Isn't it amazing American conservatives millions harbor feelings towards Putin the spans simply affinity through orgasmic longing.

Now, I must ask what is the real attraction from the American Right? While you contemplate the question you might want to checkout one who must feel he is a credible pundit: Rudy Giuliani on Putin as a leader.....

Yes, Putin the leader!
