Syria: The Shocking Truth Incriminates the USA
Pravda ^ | September 12, 2013 | Columnists

Posted on 09/15/2013 10:58:33 AM PDT by yldstrk

Firstly let us take a look at the "evidence" Obama and Kerry were peddling. For a start, John Kerry makes his mark under Peter's Principle as a failed Presidential candidate. As a diplomat and statesman, as US Secretary of State, he is either an incompetent jackass or else he is a barefaced, blatant liar, either case rendering him totally unfit for the job.

One of the photos he was waving around as evidence to incriminate President Al-Assad was taken in Iraq in 2003.

The article uses the term “squeaking” rather than “squealing” to describe Bork Obunga. Maybe I’m missing something but I don’t really see anything else to carp at....

Well, four paragraphs of strident rhetoric to start, however this time the name calling is fairly accurate, go figure. It takes Obama and cabinet to finally justify standard Pravda prose.

Then Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey get to points of fact, and here he is mostly accurate, but a warning to all, Bancroft-Hinchey traditionally rattles off more historical points that are highly inaccurate and designedly anti American in their construction, so he hasn't broken himself of the propaganda habit.

On a sideline, I believe this needs correction:

Seventhly, why did the Syrian "Revolution" begin exactly when the huge natural gas field was destroyed discovered off Syria's coast?

I guess our media is unable to be truthful, but anyway folks, remember this. We absolutely Have Satellite Surveillance of Every Square Inch of Populated land on the PLANET, 24/7. Especially the Mideast. The NSA could quite easily produce a weeks worth of video of the area to prove their point, and they HAVE NOT OFFERED ANYTHING, which means Obama and Crew are Lying thru their teeth. Produce the Imagery and we will talk.

You're not missing anything, Russians and Russian oriented writers often don't use words and phrases exactly like we are used to seeing 'em.

He also describes the Peter Principle as "Peter's principle".

In a perverse way, because they didn’t do it to help us, we should thank the Russian Government for pointing out, in a way that the US Media can’t ignore, the fact that we have a bunch of immature, incompetent amateurs running our current government.

Here's the quote:

Luckily for President Obama, President Putin was astute enough to provide him with a ladder to start climbing down after a pathetic display of sabre-rattling more befitting of a ten-year-old squeaking threats from a tree-top at his neighbor before running inside sniveling to mommy upon being stung by a wasp.

Both "squeaking" and "squealing" work fine, as would "squawking," "hissing," "shouting," "sniveling," "jibbering," et alia. "Squeaking" makes me think of rodents, which feels entirely appropriate to President You Didn't Build That.

That would be: They can actually write English well. I used "good" as an adjective. If you use the adverb "well" then it goes after the object of the verb. See http://www.towson.edu/ows/good__well.htm for a refresher.

Sex for the motherland: Russian youths encouraged to procreate at camp

Russian Youth Group Encourages "More Sex" to Save Motherland from Dwindling Population

Russian Youth Group Encourages "More Sex" to Save Motherland from Dwindling Population

By John Jalsevac

MOSCOW, Russia, July 30, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A Russian nationalist youth group is encouraging youth to have more sex in an effort to combat the nation's devastating demographic crisis, reports the Daily Mail.

In a lengthy special report the Daily Mail documents the activities of the Nashi youth movement, which is sponsoring a summer camp attended by some 10,000 Russian youth this summer. Not only are Nashi organizers encouraging the youth to have more sex, but they have designated a special area at the dormitories, the Love Oasis, for young men and women to engage in sexual intercourse. According to the Mail, condoms are unavailable in the camp.

"They [The pre-historic mammoths] became extinct because they did not have enough sex. That must not happen to Russia," said a Nashi organizer to a group of assembled campers.

The nationalistic camp involves two weeks of lectures, reported by some Western sources as being little more than anti-Western "propaganda," as well as a strenuous regimen of physical exercise. Numerous young couples have also been married at the camp, with 25 couples being married at the beginning of the first week, and ten to be married at the beginning of the second.

While many people, especially in the West, are finding in the Kremlin-initiated, and Kremlin-loyal Nashi youth group a disturbing image of similar groups started up in Nazi-era Germany, the camp's approach to sex is further evidence that the Russian government is not unaware that a demographic crisis is leading the entire Russian nation towards an early grave.


Russia's President Wants to Turn Around Population Decline

James Brooke | Moscow30 November 2010

Russia's president devoted the largest part of his annual State of Russia speech to reversing Russia's population decline.

If Russian couples have a third child, they will get a baby bonus, better health care, and free land to build a house or dacha, Russian President Dmitri Medvedev promised in his annual State of Russia speech.

Political analysts were hoping to hear about missiles or democracy. Instead they got babies.

[...]

What he did not say is that Russia compensates for its aging workforce by importing about 10 million laborers a year from Central Asia. After the United States, Russia is now the second-largest importer of workers. This influx of overwhelmingly Muslim workers creates tensions in Russia, where the population is largely Orthodox Christian.



Russian Patriotism Unleashed by Georgian War

LETTER FROM MOSCOW

The war in Georgia has provoked unprecedented levels of patriosm in Russia. The majority of the population supported their army's actions in the Caucasus. And even the fiercest critics of the Kremlin have now become proud Russians.

Members of the Kremlin-loyal youth organisation "Nashi" wave flags and hold a banner during a protest in front of the US embassy in Moscow during the Georgia war.

Ruthless Russia
American Thinker ^ | June 16, 2007 | Peter B. Martin
Excerpt:
Putin has created a very sophisticated youth movement made up of over 100,000 volunteers called "Nashi", much like a clone of the Nazi youth movement. It is a well-equipped, fanatical, nationalistic private army that is hostile to foreigners and to any political group opposing the Kremlin leadership. Their aggressive behavior is not only tolerated by the authorities but also even encouraged. They help re-enforce local police; wearing black attire, they aggressively beat anyone they consider hooligans or insurrectionist.

They have been taught to believe that the United States is actively preparing a pro-western revolution in their country and that they will thwart it. They have developed high-level recruiting and training camps right across the expanse of Russia. Not only are they schooled in a variety of military issues, they also have orientation courses in such esoteric subjects as gestalt therapy, to help them to survive under extreme conditions.

The author, who by the way, responds to posts on the site, is in my opinion unlikely to reside in Russia, is definitely not Russian, and presents an opinion not much different from that of Mark Steyn. Call it ‘propaganda’ is you like, and if you’re still uninformed, you’ll never know that Pravda is no longer the official organ of the Soviet Communist Party, and at this point is a marginal newspaper in Russia.

Or the Telegraph. Either way, the irony of this op-ed is not lost on me. The American media has become what Pravda once was. It is the official mouthpiece of the state, and the news is highly managed and “massaged” to present exactly what the democrat-controlled state organs want presented. They have also enlisted the public entertainment complext to ridicule anyone who dares to speak the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

I wonder if the "news" media is feeling out of sorts at times like these. Usually, they are doing all the exposing and damning the President, but now they are in the position of covering up for and praising their selected boy-king wannabe.

After all these years of denigrating a President (because he was Repub), it's just gotta' feel strange to be on the other side.
