    Funny what some guys will brag about . . . Today’s Morning Joe led with a discussion of the recently-released Comey memos, according to which Vladimir Putin told Donald Trump that Russia had “some of the most beautiful hookers in the world.” When it came Morning Joe regular Donny Deutsch’s turn to comment, he said: “I was a little insulted when you didn’t come initially to me on hookers. Because I’m the expert here.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev with his wife Svetlana Medvedev have arrived to the Easter Service in Moscow's Christ the Savior Cathedral. The service, conducted by Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, is also attended by Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin and other prominent political and public figures. Shortly before midnight, a capsule containing the Holy Fire from Jersualem has been brought to the cathedral. In line with a longstanding tradition, Putin attends the night-time service at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior on Easter.......

    According to the British newspaper the Daily Express, Russia's president Vladimir Putin has escalated his war of words against the West yesterday into "war games." "In a show of force," the newspapers continues, "the Russian president demonstrated his fearsome new Sarmat missile." Fearsome it is, indeed. The missile travels at 20 times the speed of sound and can carry up to 12 nuclear warheads f0r 6,000 miles. Because of this, NATO has dubbed the missile "Satan 2." The successful test launch is shown in what the Daily Express calls an "Easter message" from the Kremlin. In the footage, the Satan...

    Protocol is allowed by the media for Saint Obama but not for the devil they make Donald Trump out to be Why is it that when the Washington Post is caught with its houndstooth pants down, the Mainstream and Social Media are always found looking pointedly the other way? The WaPo’s “LEAD” story going viral today makes it seem that Donald Trump was the first—and only—president to ever congratulate Vladimir Putin on an election victory when, in point of fact, former president Barack Obama did the same thing, only in a much more gushing way:

    The House Intelligence Committee has released findings from its upcoming report on the Trump-Russia affair — and its main conclusion is that it has discovered no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. "We have found no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians," the committee said in a one-page summary of its findings released Monday afternoon. In addition, the committee took issue with the intelligence community assessment of Russian motivations in the 2016 election. The committee agrees with the assessment that the Russians did, in...

    As I so often tell you not to be taken in by the current anti-Russian frenzy, you might expect me to have some opinions on the horrible events in Salisbury. And so I do. I was reluctant to believe without proof that this was a Russian state operation. I still think some people have jumped too readily to conclusions without facts. But the more I look at it, the more I think that the message from this outrage is as follows. If Britain really wants a war with Russia, as our Government seems to, then Russia will provide that war....

    According to Maxine Waters, it’s President Trump’s mental health we need to be worrying about. As she delivered her latest rant about President Trump and Russia, you would think she would actually have a grasp on some of the basic facts. But we’re talking about Maxine Waters. During a speech at the California Democratic Party convention on Saturday, the 79-year-old Waters railed on Trump and her increasingly hysterical allegations about his supposed connections to Russia. At the height of her rant, she mispronounced Vladimir Putin’s name. Not once — but twice.

    The UN Security Council is struggling to agree a resolution seeking a ceasefire in Syria and has put back a vote until Saturday. The vote has already been delayed several times since Thursday. Russia wanted changes to the draft that calls for a 30-day calm to allow for aid deliveries and medical evacuations. Western diplomats have accused Russia, Syria's key ally, of stalling for more time. France said failure to act may spell the of the UN itself...... Commenting on Friday evening, US President Donald Trump pointed the finger of blame firmly at Syria and its allies, Russia and Iran,...

    Dutch Foreign Minister Halbe Zijlstra said for years that, when he was working for oil company Shell in 2006, he attended a meeting in Russia with President Vladimir Putin. Putin, Zijlstra explained on several occasions, said he aimed to restore "Greater Russia" in its full glory. Belarus, Ukraine, and the Baltic states were all part of this "Greater Russia." On Monday, we found out that Zijlstra wasn't in any meetings with Putin back in 2006. He admitted this to Dutch daily the Volkskrant after having repeated the story for years, including at his political party's congress back in 2016. [VIDEO]...

    Donald Trump Is Sticking it to Putin’s Russia and Making Obama Look Bad Donald Trump will deliver his second State of the Union tonight, dogged by Democrat and media allegations that he is Putin’s patsy and fanboy. The wily Russian gave Trump an assist into the White House and POTUS is paying his benefactor back with deferential behavior. Let’s get serious. Putin is not a bad player of global poker. If he bet big on Donald Trump, that would make him a chump getting his clock cleaned at the table. It was always a ludicrous notion that by buying a...

    “I offer my deepest condolences to you and the entire Cuban nation over the death of your brother, the leader of the Cuban revolution Fidel Castro. The name of this remarkable statesman is rightfully viewed as a symbol of a whole era in modern history. Free and independent Cuba built by him and his fellow revolutionaries has become an influential member of the international community and serves as an inspiring example for many countries and peoples. Fidel Castro was a sincere and reliable friend of Russia. He made a tremendous personal contribution to the establishment and progress of Russian-Cuban...

    A Russian Orthodox bishop has advised the faithful not to vote for Vladimir Putin when he stands for re-election in March, a nearly unheard of occurrence in the loyal church. The angry statement marked the first time an acting bishop has spoken against supporting the current president. Bishop Yevtikhy Kurochkin of the epiphany cathedral in the Siberian city of Ishim wrote on his page on VK, Russia's most popular social network, that he could no longer follow his “desire to vote for Putin” following “blasphemous” remarks by the president. “'If the light that is in you is darkness, how great...

    Christian Today ^ | 2017 | Harry Farley
    It is now well over a year since Vladimir Putin's Russia passed 'anti-missionary' laws and more than 180 cases have since been brought. Activities ranging from prayer meetings in homes, posting worship times on a religious website and praying in the presence of other citizens have been interpreted as 'missionary activity' with Christians making up the vast majority of the law's victims. One case is that of Donald Ossewaarde, an American Baptist preacher living in Oryol, who was expelled for hosting a church meeting in his house. Having lost appeals throughout the Russian judiciary system, Ossewaarde's case is now with...
  • EXCLUSIVE: Radical Dem Worked For Russian Lawyer Who Met With Trump, Jr.

    Radical left-wing icon former California Democratic Rep. Ron Dellums was a hired lobbyist for Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. June 9, 2016, the Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. Dellums, who represented liberal San Francisco and Oakland, Calif., is a long-time darling of left-wing political activists. He served 13 terms in Congress as an African-American firebrand and proudly called himself a socialist. He retired in 1996. The former congressman is one of several high-profile Democratic partisans who was on Veselnitskaya’s payroll, working to defeat a law that is the hated object of...

    Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny said Thursday that police were raiding his campaign headquarters in Saint Petersburg as he pressed ahead with a call for a boycott of presidential polls. "Right now a search is going on in our Saint Petersburg headquarters," Navalny wrote on Twitter, posting a video of uniformed police and non-uniformed officials with his staff. The charismatic politician, who has called a major protest on January 28, is urging voters to boycott the March election in which President Vladimir Putin is expected to win a fourth Kremlin term. Navalny himself has been barred from standing in the...

    A couple of weeks ago we looked at the sad state of affairs in the upcoming Russian Presidential election. Vladimir Putin has expressed his regrets that he just couldn’t find anyone to run against him and wishes that the race could be more competitive. Now, in what might be viewed as something of a Christmas miracle, Vlad has not just one, but two potential contenders for the presidency. Sort of. The first challenger is well known to younger, more liberal Russians, and is a long-time critic of Putin and the Moscow establishment. Alexey Navalny has been riling up crowds around...
  • Erdogan and Putin prepare to hit US interests in Syria [opinion]

    The Washington Examiner ^ | Sept 28, 2017 | Tom Rogan
    Turkey and Russia are aggressively conspiring against U.S. interests in Syria. That's my takeaway from the joint press conference on Thursday, between Presidents Erdogan and Putin in Turkey. First off, on Syria, Putin stated that Turkey and Russia have agreed to a cease-fire in Syria's north-eastern Idlib province. That statement might sound positive, but with Idlib the last major holdout of the Sunni rebellion fighting the Assad-Putin-Iran axis, Putin's words suggest that Erdogan is about to cut-off the rebel supply lines from Turkey. As I warned last December, Russia's endgame has always been the annihilation of the rebels in Idlib....

    Former Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein spoke out Thursday about why she’s the latest target in a congressional inquiry into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. Stein called the 2015 RT dinner she attended with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow a “non-event” because there wasn’t even a translator at the table. RT is a state-run news and propaganda channel. "There was no translator at the table," Stein said on CNN’s “OutFront with Erin Burnett.” "Vladimir Putin came in very late, with three, four people that I thought were his bodyguards, turns out they were core people in his...
