Russia Bashing Redux
By Stephen Lendman
At issue is independent governance. Washington tolerates it nowhere. It wants all rivals eliminated. It wants unchallenged global dominance. 
It stops at nothing. It wages political, economic and hot wars achieve it. What America says goes. Washington rules apply. It demands all nations observe them. Outliers aren't tolerated. US aims are hard-wired.
It's back to the future. Putin's Russia is the new Evil Empire. He's public enemy number one. Beating up on him is relentless. He opposes America's imperial agenda. 
Political Washington rebukes him. It does so relentlessly. Media scoundrels regurgitate state propaganda. They do it disgracefully. They're at it again. More on that below.
Russian blogger/Putin critic Aleksey Navalny faced embezzlement charges. He's accused of stealing up 16 million rubles ($500,000) from state-owned Kirovles timber company.
On April 17, his trial began. Supporters called it politically motivated. Navalny's a self-serving opportunist. He's tied to Western monied interests. He's a US imperial tool. More on that below.
On July 18, a Kirov court convicted him. It sentenced him to five years in prison. He was fined about $15,000. Pending appeal, he and co-defendent Pyotr Ofitserov were conditionally freed. They agreed not to leave Moscow.
Navalny was a volunteer aide to Kirovsk Region's governor. Allegedly he was involved in a dubious Kirovles deal. Substantial losses followed. So did bankruptcy.
Wiretap and witness testimony linked him and Ofitserov to fraud and embezzlement. They rewrote Kivovles supply contracts. They arraigned them through shell company VLK. 
Perhaps if profits, not losses, resulted, charges wouldn't have followed. At the same time, evidence against both defendants is weak at best. Apparently enough to convict. Less than prosecutors wanted. 
Corruption in Russia's widespread. Huge amounts are involved. Navalny's smalltime. Megacrooks aren't charged. Why Navalny? Why target a minor political opportunist? Why give him added prominence?
At most, he enjoys 10% Muscovite support. He gets about 5% nationwide. He calls charges against him politically motivated - a "boring joke," he said.
"There is no motive. There is no gain. The stated damages are taken out of nowhere." 
"All most imported testimony against me has appeared to be false." 
"The witness who testified me himself appears to be a member of my criminal syndicate."
He claimed inconsistencies taint charges against him. Whether true or false remains for others to determine. He had his day in court. He'll get a second chance on appeal.
He's a Moscow mayoral candidate. He said if convicted, he'll stand down. Despite charges against him, he can run if he wishes.
September elections are scheduled. He's undecided whether or not to participate. He doesn't have enough support to win.
He's no democrat. He's no populist. He's ideologically driven. He's very much right wing. In 1999, he joined the Yabloko party. It supports free-wheeling capitalism. 
It supports neoliberal harshness. It benefits few at the expense of most others. In December 2011 elections, it fared poorly. It won few legislative seats. Since founded in 1993, it participated in six elections. Its best showing was 7.86% popular support. In 2011, it was 3.43%.
In 2005, Navalny participated in the Russian March. It's an annual neo-Nazi event. Yabloko expelled him. He's chauvinistic. He supports "Russia for the Russians." "Stop feeding the Caucasus."
In 2007, he began campaigning against corruption. Russian business broadsheet Nedomosti named him "Person of the Year 2009."
He attended Russia's Peoples' Friendship University, Finance University under the Government of the Russian Federation, and Yale.
He took part in Yale's "world fellows' program." It's for "emerging leaders." It aims to create a pro-Western global network.
He's a lawyer/smalltime politician/financial wheeler-dealer. He's a self-serving opportunist. He's a prominent Putin opponent.
He's a Russian Opposition Coordination Council member. He informally leads the unregistered People's Alliance party. He co-chairs RPR-PARNAS (Republican Party of Russia).
He's a Western media darling. Time magazine called him Russia's Erin Brockovich. He's no environmental activist/consumer advocate. 
In 2011, BBC said he's "arguably the only major opposition figure to emerge in Russia in the past five years."
In 2012, the Wall Street Journal called him "the man Vladimir Putin fears most." 
Former New York Times executive editor Bill Keller said he's a "potential political leader." He's "young, thoughtful, politically astute, crowd-pleasing, and apparently unafraid."
Last year, Time named him one of the world's 100 most influential figures. Hyperbole is standard scoundrel media practice. So is managed news misinformation rubbish.
At most, Navalny's smalltime. In spring 2011, polls showed only 4% Russian population recognition. His LiveJournal blog features political invective. 
He claims Russia's ruling United Russia party provides political cover for corrupt officials. Whether true or false, hyperbole substitutes for corroborating evidence.
Former President Medvedev declared war on corruption. It's dangerous for ordinary people to do it. It's disingenuous when politically motivated.
Navalny's a political opportunist. He's self-serving. He's involved for his own benefit. He's a Western stooge. So are Boris Nemtzov, Garry Kasparov, Vladimir Ryzhkov, and others like them. 
In 2009, Nemtzov and Kasparov met personally with Obama. They discussed anti-Putin tactics. They have other high-level US connections.
They all get State Department funding. Navalny admits it. It comes through the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). It wages war on democracy worldwide. It advances America's interests. 
It ruthlessly targets Putin. It finances political initiatives opposing him. It meddles in Russia's presidential and parliamentary elections.
It funds so-called independent NGO election monitor Golos. It's pro-Western. It's well paid to claim fraud. Western media scoundrels regurgitate false charges.
NED, its National Democratic Institute (NDI) arm, the International Republican Institute (IRI), and similar organizations are destabilizing US foreign policy tools.
In dozens of countries worldwide, they support pro-Western and/or regime change initiatives. They're CIA alter egos. They covertly fund opposition groups. They're actively anti-Putin.
Claiming it's a "private, nonprofit foundation dedicated to the growth and strengthening of democratic institutions around the world" masks NED's true agenda. 
It actively participated in US orchestrated "color revolutions." It did so in Georgia, Ukraine and elsewhere. It manipulated so-called "Arab Spring" rebellions. It helped create illusions of change.
It represents US imperial interests. Current board members include GlobalNet Partners John Bohn, notorious neocon Zalmay Khalizad, former right-wing congressman Vin Weber, former Bush II official/World Bank president Robert Zoellick, among others.
Earlier board members included Otto Reich, John Negroponte, Elliot Abrams, and General Wesley Clark.
Taking NED or other foreign funding violates Russian law. Baseless accusations are illegal. In America, prosecutions would result. 
Pro-Western groups operate freely in Russia. So do anti-government supporters. Navalny fell afoul of the law. What follows on appeal remains to be seen.
Whether or not guilty of fraud and corruption, he's no hero. US support isn't for democracy. 
Washington doesn't care if governments are democratic, despotic or anything in between. It's comfortable with secular and Islamofascist ones. They're OK if follow Washington rules.
Independent ones are targeted. Regime change is prioritized. Putin's Russia is deplored. He opposes US imperial rampaging. He's a thorn in America's side. He's independent. He doesn't roll over on demand.
According to Russia's Constitution, he's Russian Federation President, head of state, supreme commander-in-chief of defense as well as domestic and foreign policy.
He's outspoken against America encroaching to Russia's borders. US bases encircle the country. So-called missile defense/tracking radar systems are for offense.
US/Russian "reset" is more illusion than reality. It's been that way all along. Putin has vital Russian interests to protect. He won't sell out to Washington.
He's strengthening ties to China, India, Brazil, South Africa, and other fast-growing countries. They comprise a significant economic and political bloc.
American influence is waning. Russia's emerging. It's an important world player. It's rich in oil and gas. It's got growing clout. 
It'll take more than Navalny and other pro-Western stooges to derail its growing importance. It's advancing economically and politically. 
Putin's able to confront imperial America. He supports peace and stability. He's against America's imperial agenda.
At the same time, he wants good relations. He won't sacrifice independence getting them. He believes nation-state sovereignty is inviolable. 
With him involved, Russia's back proud and reassertive. He won't roll over for America. He's focused more on Eurasian ties. He and Obama clash on fundamental principles.
Given America's belligerence, they impact Russia's survival. Putin's foreign policy prioritizes peace, economic growth and cooperation. He's against confrontation. He's a thorn in America's side.
He's scorned for standing up to its bullying. He's taking heat for Navalny's conviction. White House spokesman Jay Carney called it "politically motivated." He said it's part of a "disturbing trend" in Russia.
State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said "(w)e are very disappointed by (his) conviction and sentencing."
US senators want him released. Senator Ben Cardin (D. MD) embarrassed himself. He did so shamelessly. He called Navalny "a man fighting to free the country he loves." (He) must be released free and unharmed."
Cardin, Harf, Carney et al ignore America's war on humanity, its advancing tyranny. They turn a blind eye to deplorable civil and human rights abuses. 
Countless thousands fill America's gulag. Indefinite detention uncharged/untried and torture reflect official policy. Don't expect them to explain.
Nor media scoundrels. They support the worst of Washington's crimes. They jumped on Navalny's conviction. They did so shamelessly. They didn't surprise.
New York Times editors headlined "Mr Putin Tries to Crush Another Rival." 
They called him a "strong man." They've called him worse. He "actually seems weak and insecure," they added.
Charging and convicting Navalny "were a transparent retaliation for Mr. Navalny's campaign against public corruption and Mr. Putin's United Russia political machine as a party of 'swindlers and thieves.' "
"The process was politically rigged."
"It has long been clear that Mr. Putin, who honed his bullying instincts as a KGB officer, cannot tolerate challenge or even political debate."
If Russians "listen to Navalny," they'll get "a more democratic and equitable country."
Wall Street Journal editors headlined "Free Alexei Navalny," saying: 
"(J)ailing your opponents can bring unforeseen consequences. Think Mandela" and others like him.
Navalny's no Mandela. Journal editors didn't explain. "Nearly all cases in Russia end in convictions," they said, "certainly all political cases."
Judges, prosecutors and police "behave like apparatchiks following orders."
"Western leaders can raise Mr. Navalny's case at every opportunity with the Kremlin leader. Russia doesn't belong in the G-8 as long Mr. Putin represses all opposition."
Journal editors urged Washington and Europe to intervene on his behalf. They did so disgracefully. 
They've been silent about Bradley Manning's witch-hunt trial. They want Edward Snowden's head. They support America's worst. They bash its best.
They endorse imperial lawlessness and neoliberal harshness. They're on the wrong side of history. They're not alone.
Russia's no model of governmental perfection. Compared to America, it almost looks that way. 
Media scoundrels point fingers the wrong way. They ignore the enormous harm Washington inflicts on humanity. 
It reflects rogue state lawlessness writ large. It's unprecedented in world history. It made today the most perilous time ever. Its war on humanity may destroy it. 
Compared to Obama, Putin almost looks saintly. Navalny's a side issue. He hardly matters in the greater scheme of things.
World peace, stability, and government of, by and for everyone equitably and just matter most. Don't expect scoundrel editors to explain.

Shut Up!
By Bob Rinear
I’m not supposed to be nasty, I write a financial newsletter that goes out to thousands of folks. When you are trying to express opinion and observation to thousands of people, the last thing you’re supposed to do is get nasty. Well, unless you’re a Hollywood snob or a rap artist. Otherwise PR people will tell you that you should be “pleasant”. 
At this moment, I don’t feel pleasant. Let me explain. 
We all know about the Martin/Zimmerman verdict. We all know that despite overwhelming evidence that this had nothing to do with racial profiling, a vast sum of folks are using the case to push that agenda. Then there’s another group using the case to further their agenda of pushing for more gun control.  I’m tired of both factions. 
On Friday, the President himself did more to divide the races from a political pulpit than any other standing official I can think of.  He gave examples of how racial profiling had even affected him in his life.  At one point he said the following…
There are very few African-American men in this country who haven’t had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store. That includes me. And there are very few African-American men who haven’t had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars. That happens to me, at least before I was a senator. There are very few African-Americans who haven’t had the experience of getting on an elevator and a woman clutching her purse nervously and holding her breath until she had a chance to get off. That happens often.
As he proceeded, he said that reasons for that were because of violent situations in the past.  And then there was this…. And so the fact that sometimes that’s unacknowledged adds to the frustration. And the fact that a lot of African-American boys are painted with a broad brush and the excuse is given, well, there are these statistics out there that show that African-American boys are more violent -- using that as an excuse to then see sons treated differently causes pain.
Did you catch the line.. “well, there are these statistics out there that show that African-American boys are more violent”?  Here’s where I get my panties in a bunch. I wanted the President to approach this whole racial problem from a different tact. But no, he went right along with the same story we’ve had to endure for years. Bad things happened a long long time ago, and the pain lingers. 
How about standing up and saying that ladies wouldn’t clutch their purse, and door locks wouldn’t click if African American boys didn’t express violence? How about saying that the reason Chinese, or Vietnamese boys aren’t feared in an elevator is because young Chinese boys are busy studying to be engineers, not leaning “gangsta rap?”  How about saying that is time to say “no more” to the old way. End the violence, and there will no longer be any reason for the different reactions from people. If more young black men were choir boys, engineers, doctors and professionals,  instead of wanna be gangsters, no one would fear them and they’d never raise an eyebrow. But no one, no one at all that has a voice will say that. 
That makes me sad and angry.  Do you know why? It is on purpose. The black community has been sold down the river by the very people that confess daily to trying to save them. It’s baloney.  
My son Eric’s best friend for over 12 years was a black kid named Joseph. They hung out, had sleep overs, and did what youngsters do. Joseph loved anything technology and put his mind to learning everything he could. I’m proud to say that Joseph is now an employee at Microsoft.  His parents didn’t let him fall into the “why me” camp. They didn’t blame anyone for their family’s success or failure. They explained that some shallow people might look at you differently, but just ignore them and act nice.  The message was simple, work hard and you’ll get ahead. He worked very hard, was a “good kid” and is now very ahead. Why isn’t that message preached from the pulpits of Jesse Jackson and al Sharpton? Because it puts them out of business.  It should. 
Now onto the gun control folks. 
Unless you’ve actually been intelligent enough to read all the transcripts of the case, and most haven’t… what most people are going on is what they get from the media. A cop wanna be selected a young black man, followed him and shot him down like a dog. It makes sensational press, gets folks all fired up, and pushes their agenda for the confiscation of guns down the road. Of course the fact that it was completely not true has nothing to do with it. 
In my town of Sarasota, there’s an all you can eat Chinese buffet a couple miles from the house. My parents ate there periodically in their 25+ years of living in town and we enjoy the occasional visit too. Not a month or two goes by where we don’t decide to stop in at the “Dynasty” and have a feast. Frankly I don’t know how they can stay in business. They put out over 60 dishes every day, the food is always crackin fresh, and you can eat all you want for 9 bucks. It is one of the few bargains left in life. 
Last Sunday, the manager of the place,  “Andrew”…who’s real name is Tian Tian, was running the dining room as usual. A more pleasant guy you couldn’t meet. He was always making sure your food was good, the glasses full and the d├ęcor spotless. He was basically just a “great guy”. 
A group of 3 guys described as “Hispanic” walked up to the register after eating. They tossed their checks on the counter and bolted out the door. Andrew quickly chased after them out the door.  After a short while the staff went out to find him. They found him in the next door parking lot unconscious. He’d been beaten badly, very badly. After 3 days in the hospital, Andrew died from his wounds. 
Despite living in Florida, where you can indeed carry a concealed weapon, Andrew didn’t carry. For less than a 30 dollar dinner bill, these 3 punks beat him to death. This could have been your son or daughter. This could have been your mother/father/brother/sister. Beaten to death by punks willing to kill you for 30 bucks. Yet the gun grabbers will tell you baloney about how he’d have probably shot innocent youths or even himself. Their logic is beyond infantile, it’s a mathematical notation of stupid not yet invented. 
Don’t let uninformed media idiots use the Zimmerman case to further their utopian fantasy. Had Andrew had the ability to draw a firearm, even if he didn’t hold anyone until the cops got there, he most certainly wouldn’t have been beaten to death.  Doesn’t he have that right? Luckily Florida says yes he does. It’s the gun grabbing idiots that don’t think personal protection is your right. 
So, while I wasn’t close friends with this man, going to the Dynasty for the buffet will never be the same. Life has changed for that business, his family, and all that knew him. That didn’t have to be, and I’m saddened by it. Yet again, so many want to take away the right to have that firearm, to defend yourself against feral punks. How sad is that? Very. 
Let me wrap this up. Our Country is going through some massive changes. Everything from the fundamentals of our economic system, to radically different views on government to social issues, is being poked, prodded and twisted. Our Government is spying on us like an Orwellian big brother, and every day flexes its muscles against normal every day folks that have done nothing.  The IRS admits it has singled out “conservatives”, our jobs are gone, and our future is blurry. 
The racial tensions in this country are at the highest level I can remember. Instead of getting better, they’re egged on by race baiters, and they’re taking the bait. It disgusts me to the core. The media is nothing short of the State Propaganda machine. Honest reporting of issues is as long past as Clark Kent. People that have never actually seen a real gun let alone handled or shot one are convinced they know what is best for everyone else. 
Why can’t people just leave other people alone? What is it in the American’s psyche that makes people want to impose their beliefs and agenda on other people? I just don’t get it. Most folks I know just want to be left alone, to enjoy their lives in peace, but every day that is harder to do, because someone else has an idea of how you should live, where you should live, what you should drive, when you should drive it and on and on and on. 
The grumbling gets louder. Almost every day if I keep my ears open, I’ll hear someone grumbling about what’s going on in the Country. I stop in the Wawa for Coffee and listen to the guys complaining about something.  In times past, folks would complain about the weather or working too hard or their boss or yard work. Now, a lot of it centers around Washington, Stupid laws, race division, taxes and Obamacare. Times are changing, attitudes changing. 
They say the one constant is change and I agree. But what I don’t agree with is that all change is good. It isn’t. Some things need to be left just as they were, such as “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”.  But with all this poking and prodding I fear that what is happening is that a lot of folks are hardening up. They’re going to push a lot of the edge dwellers over that edge. Meaning they don’t feel like they’re free to have their life liberty and pursuit of happiness. How they lash out over all that remains to be seen, but I think it’s time for a lot of folks to just shut up. The race baiters should shut up, the gun grabbers, the evil politicians, the crooked Wall Street banks, and a host of others. 
Gerald Celente says that when people have nothing left to lose, they lose it. Meaning they go off, they go nuts, they do things they normally wouldn’t do.  We’ve lost our jobs, we’ve lost our economy. We’ve lost our moral compass. They want our second amendment rights, and they want the very last of our privacy. A lot of people have nothing left to lose. That makes for desperate folks. I wish a lot of people would just shut up and leave everyone else alone. It won’t happen. Be careful.
