    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

Russian Sanctioned By White House Responds On Twitter To "Comrade Obama"

Tyler Durden's picture


Moments ago we listed the Russian Putin "advisors" impacted by the latest Obama executive order freezing those assets over which the US has access. Among them was deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin and Russia's ambassador to NATO. As a reminder, in 2011 Russian President Dmitry Medvedev appointed Dmitry Rogozin as a Special Representative on anti-missile defence and negotiations with NATO countries on this issue. On 23 December 2011 Dmitry Rogozin was appointed deputy premier of Russian Government in charge of defense and space industry. As responsible for the defense industry he leads the creation of the Russian Foundation for Advanced Research Projects in the Defense Industry (Russian DARPA). Moments ago Rogozin replied to Obama's "freezing" of his, among other, assets.


Which, as reported on Friday, probably is the case for many Russians oligarchs, who were expecting this move by Obama long ago. Worst case, a whole lot of New York City duplex penthouses are about to hit the market.

And then this follow up tweet:

We expect Obama to respond on twitter momentarily. We also look forward if Obama will provide the Russian with a loophole allowing them to allocate frozen assets toward Obamacare...

Joker is too polite a term.  If he is an Ambassador to NATO then he has probably has diplomatic credentials.  Moreover, unless one is of the belief that six million dead Hebes and six million dead Polacks actually was a good start, it's a bit intellectually inconsistent to be throwing up impediments to Russia-NATO dialogue...

And there is the community organizer's jihad waging intentions. This is all feigned incompetence. The barbarians will be ringing the doorbell shortly afterwards in Western Europe. First Neo-Nazis in places like Greece and then the large muslim communities throughout Europe. All these groups are fairly strongly connected through underground groups. The Svoboda has strong Islamic connections through Kosovo and Chechnya.

You couldn't have picked a better cast of amoral sociopaths than Svoboda holocaust loving Neo Nazi's holding hands with joooo oligarch's, jooo ex central bankers as acting PM's and jooo state department  officials stiring up trouble out in the wide open to invoke the jewish equivalent of the NYPD blue wall of silence to undermine all jews in a bad light on a mass scale.

I don't get it...  despite who Obama surrounded himself with and was supported by early on in Chicago, the heavy Jewish involvement in his administration and the Ukrainian coup is just a smokescreen designed to get everyone to blame Jews for things...  ehm...  Jews are doing.... so that Barry can bring about the Caliphate?





I don't see much evidence of surreptitious jihad.  I see neocons, zionists, militarists, bankers, and corporate interests preparing to rape yet another unsupecting country....that the heavy Jewish involvement is just some clever ruse to blame them while advancing jihad....   meh, I think you can just follow the money and ask 'cui bono?'.

I guess you missed the part about the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda for starters. There is difference between jews and jooos. Moral but weak jews do what ashamed people do to cover up sin they keep silent about it to keep the whole institution from being painted in a bad light. That is what power does period if it actually gives a shit about image. Jooos, faux christians, faux muslims etc don't care it is just a means to an end to be used and abused as needed. There is a major difference but people like you like to paint everyone as one big happy homogenous family and that is never the case. These people are amoral the jews that keep silent about them and keep covering up their messes are immoral there is a major difference........

Humans are still humans at the end of the day. People like you don't seem to be able to understand that and can only see the particular labels and hang all your hate there when it is a more basic problem.

This a perfect oportunity to crack down on offshore accounts and start scrutinizing foreign transfers. As far as I'm concerned, money that enters America should stay in America. Case closed.

I have never approved of seizure of personal property by the government for any reason. it is nothing but theft and has gotten to the point where in some states it is ill-advised to carry cash for any reason when you are traveling, because if you get stopped by cops for any reason you are liable to be shaken down and deprived of it with no recourse. 

Mon, 03/17/2014 - 11:42 | 4558802 nmewn

Zactly right.

Then its incumbent on you to fight on their terms to get your own property or cash back and bear all costs in doing so. Its the exact opposite of how it should work, you steal my stuff, I'm damaged...meaning you return my stuff PLUS I'm awarded damages for you taking my stuff unjustifiably in the first place.

Just like the IRS, they should be refunding your money WITH interest & penalty for holding onto to it for over a year.

lol...I've been of the opinion they really are trying to drive us nuts for a long time.

None of it makes sense, hasn't for a while.

Russia moves into Crimea. Solution, freeze individuals assets, not the countrys, the individuals.

Four to six million people who would like health insurance. Solution, fuck everyones health insurance up.

People need jobs. Solution, borrow a gazzilion dollars and give it to your cronies.

Madman kills people. Solution, make people more defenseless.

Its like some weird, Orwellian nightmare, so I laugh at it, thinking we'll all wake up at some point.

and oh so many more:

Worried about Mexican drug violence?  Sell the cartels thousands of weapons.

Worried about not having enough jobs for the citizens?  Import millions of illegales and hand them fraudulent tax refunds, EBT cards, free health care, and in insanity of all insanities...give one a license to practice law.

Worried about failing performance by US students?  Squeeze more parents and force their children into public schools that fail at every juncture.  More money is always the solution, and the reply to the track record of failure is that we haven't given enough money yet.

Worried about the use of illegal drugs?  Send the SA cartels AK-47's in exchange for cocaine, then re-sell the coke to Americans.  Send the military to AFG to guard the fields of opium poppies.

It's almost as if completely fucked up is their intent.
