Saudi King Bows to New Middle East Tsar Putin And Brings Billions For Joint Projects With Russia
Meanwhile as we deal with all sorts of stupid distractions thanks to the clowns who run this country, Russia is busy stealing our allies. I didn't see anything about this potentially pivotal event in mainstream news anywhere.

Check Out NEW 4+ Generation Su-30SM Fighter IN ACTION
The Russian economy is growing despite efforts by the USA to undermine it. Support for Putin remains incredibly high despite corporate media propaganda. Their military is advancing technologically at an incredibly fast rate and they're kicking ass in Syria. Meanwhile the dipshits in charge here are wasting time on completely pointless sideshows.

THANKS FOR SANCTIONS: A Record Wheat Crop in Russia Supresses American Farmers Input
Ultimately the sanctions just make Russia stronger since they force Russia to develop its economy and to become more self-sufficient while also finding new trade partners.

Russian Jet vs. US Plane: 'Instead of Whining, US Should Stop Provoking Russia'
Both sides do this sort of thing, but mostly we only hear about supposed Russian violations. Our media paints an unrealistic picture where we're the good guys and they're the bad guys. Reality doesn't work that way.
The Russian Defense Ministry has noted a major uptick in US and NATO flights near Russian territory in recent months. In mid-November, the Ministry reported that jets were scrambled three times in one week to chase away foreign recon planes. In the seven day period, twelve spy planes were caught approaching Russian airspace, including six on the western borders, three in the Russian Arctic, one on the southwestern flank and two from the east.

a2z: Both sides are more or less equally guilty and that's why it's important to look at things from several perspectives. Moreover, that's why I'm very concerned about recent moves by Google and others to make it more difficult to find news from Russia. This makes me very suspicious of the intentions of our corporately owned government and the corporately owned news media.

Russian spy ship heading toward US
We do this kind of thing all the time to Russia. Turnabout is fair play.

Russia in talks with multiple nations over S-400 defense system
Russia is becoming a serious competitor in the military defense market, selling units to China, India, Saudi Arabia, and other major countries. This will be a serious boost to the Russian economy.

America Is Losing Arms Race Against Russia and China - Top Israeli Intel Boss
I agree with most of the observations made in this short clip (especially regarding corruption in the USA and the cost of arms production), but I think some of the prognostications he makes are a little premature and not quite exactly eventualities that are set in stone. However, it is reasonable to suggest that they are eventual likelihoods unless the USA stops making stupid decisions as has been what we've done ever since we invaded Iraq.

PROPHECY: Putin To Oligarchs in 2002- You Will Be Swallowing Dust To Unfreeze Your Offshore Accounts
If Putin saw this coming way back in 2002, then you can pretty much count on the fact that he had counter-measures in place long ago. He plays the long game. Americans play a short-sighted game. Already we see Russia strengthening economic ties with other super powers and the USA falling steadily behind. As an American I hope our leaders wake up and start managing our affairs in a wise manner instead of just playing politics, which has been how things have been done for the past several decades as the USA steadily declines.

US justice dept indicts 13 Russians over alleged 'meddling'
I've listened to a dozen reports on this situation published by our corporately owned media and none of this adds up to anything worth fretting about. Why is it that Russia Today provides the most objective and level-headed account of the story? Maybe because all they're doing is undermining the propaganda being produced by our corporately owned media. It takes a lot of work to propagate a lie, but it's not all that hard to expose the lie. Which is exactly why it's so easy for RT to expose these lies.
