Russia's Putin signs anti-U.S. adoption bill [Obama and Hillary "Reset" is MASSIVE FAILURE]
CNN ^ | 12/28/12

Posted on 12/28/2012 4:00:39 AM PST by SoFloFreeper

President Vladimir Putin signed a controversial measure banning the adoption of Russian children by U.S. families, the Kremlin said Friday.

The action could affect hundreds of American families seeking to adopt. Americans adopted close to 1,000 Russian children last year, according to U.S. State Department figures.

Demand for white Russian babies by white Americans is seen by the left as racist. Therefore, banning the trade is the just and moral thing to do.

Not only is zero destroying America, he's destroying any relationship with any industrialized country and opening our land ... our brick and mortar .. to any 6th century peoples that will cowtow to him.

It will be rercorded that zero is a dictator unlike any in all history.

It is already recorded that he was a successful conquror before he was elected the first time by appearing before an admiring, but dumb, crowd while flankjed with styrofoam greek columns.

I've often used a scene in Ben Hur to describe something I thought I knew, but I'm beginning to realize the scene was re-written in a, "Hold m'joint, watch this .." kind of way.

arack hussein obama has been picked apart so many times here in FreeRepublic, it's a wonder anything can be put back together, but we have the words and picures recorded .. we have the interviews and speeches.

We have the film and clips and everything we need to conclude, he entered the Senate as the presidernt.

It was a done deal ... AND HE TOLD US SO.

Everything zero has done was as a fait accompli .. done deal ..

It used to be said we would never get rid of the Clintons, and in a way it is true, but the Clintons have been made into zero's bitches, and they know it, and they are powerless to stop it.

Either zero is the antiChrist or the herald immediately before him

Putin worried about American homosexual adoptive “parents” perverting Russian youths.

Pooty-Poot is an old school commie but he (rightly) despises America's IMMORAL Left...

...as a former KGB big shot he has tortured and murdered his share of “enemies of the revolution” but kids is different...

...the vast majority of even hard core criminal bastards draw the line at hurting children and ruining their chances for normal lives.

You would think we would have enough white kids here in America for adoption, but thanks to abortion ,I suppose they are scarce.
Another thing about adopting kids here in America is that thanks to judges and newer interpretations of laws, the Natural parents can come back years later and make a claim on those kids they gave away.

If Putin has a worry about Homo’s adopting Russian kids I would say it is justified.One thing is sure Putin has no respect whatsoever for the cowardly regime of Obama as displayed by a soft headed open to concussion Hillary Clinton.What a joke America is becoming.

Yeah, the Russians have a legitimate gripe. This is not about politics but about how Russian children, many of whom have mental or behavioral problems arising from their abuse in orphanages, have been poorly treated by American adoptive parents.

This case was the trigger:

My heart breaks for prospective parents who have already seen a photo or video of their child/children and now will never be able to adopt them. Speaking from experience, once you’ve seen the picture/video of “your” child, you cling to that image, pray for them, imagine how their lives are now, imagine how they could be in your family...so, for the folks who were adopting, it’s very sad, but let’s not forget the orphans now left in the Russian orphanages. No one is rushing in to adopt these children, no one will be there when they reach the age to leave—no one except those individuals who trick these young orphans into prostitution, sex slaves, worker camps, drug runners, crime gangs, etc. Orphans have NO status in Russia, and these young people are left to their own devices for their survival—and they quickly find out or rediscover it’s a mean, cruel world.

Yes, a lot has gone very wrong with quite a few international adoptions, where both parents and the children have been ill-equipped and/or ill-treated for their new environment. Changes in the adoption process had already been made, but the system is still so messed up (the cultural differences, the judicial differences, etc.) that serious problems still were present.

Very sad...and yes, abortion here in America has virtually eliminated orphanages, and the courts have so negated the adoptive parents’ rights that folks who want children on a permanent basis are going outside the country.

Walk the path of prospective parents and you’ll experience a lot of pain and frustration. We want children so much we go thru hell to get them. Other parents who can conceive on their own don’t go thru background checks, financial checks, in home checks, mental and physical health checks, etc. Imagine if you had to do that just to hold the child you want!

Yeah, the world is very upside down, and it’s definitely not fair. Only God can make good come out of any of this, and believe me, I relied on Him before, during and after our successful Russian adoption. God is definitely my rock!

The kids are abused and neglected in the orphanages. Then released into a world that hates them. They have no chance for a normal life in Russia. They’re better off being adopted by Sodomites. Putin is a cold monster.

You’re assigning attributes to Russians that don’t exist. They hate their orphans and they hate Americans. It was only a matter of time before they punish both.

I have a number of Russian friends and have traveled there myself, and you’re wrong. I know them very well. The treatment of their orphans by American adoptive parents has been a really sore issue for them ever since that woman sent that 7-year-old boy back to Moscow with nothing. Again, this is not politics, but a backlash against what they perceive as mistreatment of their own.

This is not true. Children legally removed from their bio parents cannot be taken back. Ever.

You are at least partly correct. The Russians recoil at the thought of children being raised by gay couples, or anyone else they consider to be morally derelict.

Other side of the coin is that Russia is cratering demographically. Putin needs to keep as many white Russian children there as possible if he has any hope of preventing the Russian Far East from becoming a new province of China.

then-Pittsburgh Penguins coach Kevin Constantine gave an interview to the local press about his two adopted children. Both were adopted in Canada when he was coaching there. He and his wife both commented that they would never adopt in the U.S. because under our laws the adoption never really does become final.

He’s been gone for about 10 yrs. so maybe things are different now. I don’t know.

And so I’m sure we’re going to see an uptick in Russian parents adopting Russian orphans. You should start holding your breath now until then. This would all be well and good, and the people who support the Evil Putty would be telling the truth, if Russians cared about their orphans. They don’t. So the people you know wringing their hands over abuse by Americans don’t really care about the kids, they just don’t want Americans to have them.

This is a country where 70 babies are aborted for every 100 live birth. They don’t have the moral high ground in this argument.

I remember after the fall of the USSR (Thank You RR) a Russian women so happy to be out from under that oppressive regime saying: “NEVER AGAIN will we allow government that much control over our lives”

Well unfortunately Putin is just another thug with too much power at his command and if that woman is still alive she is once again living under more government control.

When will the world ever learn that “leaders” can be the most dangerous thing to human life?

They “lead us into war” all while sitting well protected hundreds/thousands of miles from the fight. The more tools they are given to lead from behind (like our boy wonder Prez) the more dangerous they become as they are well insulated from the average citizen.

So you are for homosexuals inducting children into their destructive perverted lifestyles?

Are you sure you are on the right website? Seems Putin is a better conservative than you and he is a communist!!!

“Better off adopted by sodomites?”

Do you value the flesh over the immortal soul?

Putin is a savage sonofabitch but he cares about the mental health of his nation's children...and hasn't Adam Lanza proved what happens when you F that up?

You have an acute understanding of Russian demographics (are you a former Condi Rice employee?)

Stalin used his despised Siberian Asians, subhuman to him and his desperate to survive sycophants but with the needed barbarian gifts of adaptation to extreme environments demanded by the front, to turn back the Nazi hordes of WWII.
But once done (because he too, like Hitler and his Jew ancestry, was a descendant of the enemies of his blessed proletariat) these no longer useful idiots were then sent to the gulags for a millions dead coverup...

Obama has expressed his envy for such socialist power.

He was misinformed.

In the US children who are legally free are adoptable. Legally free means that they are US citizens, do not belong to the Tribes and both bio parents have signed off on the adoption. Bioparents cannot be married. That is the bar to jump. Done it four times. My kids are in their teens and twenties now.

Tsar Putin embraces this hypernationalist crap to prop up support for his dictatorship, at the expense of children’s lives.

Piece of crap should be shot against a wall.

To those on this thread that say Russia has a point, they don’t.

Thanks Impy. My hope is that, when (not if) Putin gets capped, it’s captured on vid, because I want to watch it again and again, and post a link to it in my tagline.

Poor planning by Planned Parenthood. Their failure to suggest adoption instead of abortion would have taken good care of this issue. IMHO
