Anybody who has an above zero IQ and follows alt_news must be aware by now that the US Congress’ latest sanctions against Russia are futile and will end up hurting US allies – and this time possibly the USA itself. Since Russia hasn’t done any of the things Washington and the NATO poodles accuse it of, like interference in US elections (US secret services have repeatedly affirmed there is no evidence whatsoever, not that you would have read that in mainstream media), interference in Ukraine (It is generally known that Washington / NATO / EU instigated and paid for the bloody Maidan coup in February 2014); annexing Crimea (an overwhelming (97%) vote by the people of Crimea for reincorporation into the Russian Federation – their given right, according to the UN Charter). Even if Russia wanted to, she couldn’t correct any of her ‘mistakes’. They are all fabrications.
None of Washington’s allegations have any substance. But the western presstitutes and the bitter and resentful Democrats, their arses still hurting from the kick Trump gave them, keep hammering the idea that Russia helped Trump steal the election, into the dimwitted brains of a dumbed down populace. We can only repeat with Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Propaganda Minister: “Let me control the media, and I will turn any Nation into a herd of Pigs”. Well, the western globalist - corporate propaganda machine has successfully turned western civilizations (sic) into a herd of pigs.
Is every member of the US Congress really so stupid as to believe that Russian interference in US presidential elections swung it for Trump? FFS the corrupt and crooked Hillary Clinton is so hated the Republicans could have run Ivan The Terible as their candidate and still won. Or do the leaders of the people simply believe “We, the US of A and Masters of the Universe, interfere in the internal politics of sovereign nations all the time, so Russia and China must be doing it too”?
Although President Trump appears to utterly dislike that Congress overwhelmingly approved the new ‘sanctions’ The Donald really had no option but to sign it into law. Had he used his veto it would certainly have been overruled and that could have triggered another crisis for his troubled presidency.
Angela Merkel is leading resistance to the new set of sanctions which, she rightly points out, will do nothing to Russia. Russia is way beyond the reach of US economic sanctions, as its economy is detached from that of the west apart from oil and gas exports to the EU, which the EU cannot do withouit. Russia as well as China, and the entire Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) have learned fast how to respond to Washington’s economic bullying.
President Putin, while routinely protesting at the imposition of more stupid sanctions, must be chuckling about the pathetic ignorance of Washington in clinging to a belief in its own Masters of the Universe mythology in handing out punishments to lesser nations. Hilariously, the new sanctions would, for example, enable the US to fine European companies participating in joint Russian-European pipeline projects. Not only are Russia and China now separately superior to the USA, together they could annihilate the US military. In fact, these anti-Russia sanctions will only penalize Europe, but may serve to shock British and EU leaders out of their servile dependence on US leadership.
So, why do the ‘sanctions’ continue? – Propaganda, stupid! – The rest of the world must believe America is the greatest, most powerful and can police the world at their whim. That’s Washington’s ultimate tool for survival – a web of lies clad in massive propaganda – exactly following the edict of Goebbels.
