Huh. It’s like Mitt Romney was onto something when he said that Russia was a concern back in 2012. And then Democrats made fun of him for it.
Yeah… not looking so funny anymore, is it?
According to this, the Russian government is ordering top officials to bring any relatives they may have abroad back home. The reasons (so far) are unclear – just that there are unspecified prospects of “global war” on the horizon –
Politicians and high-ranking figures are said to have received a warning from president Vladimir Putin to bring their loved-ones home to the ‘Motherland’, according to local media.
It comes after Putin cancelled a planned visit to France amid a furious row over Moscow’s role in the Syrian conflict and just days after it emerged the Kremlin had moved nuclear-capable missiles near to the Polish border.
Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev has also warned that the world is at a ‘dangerous point’ due to rising tensions between Russia and the US.
According to the Russian site Znak.com, administration staff, regional administrators, lawmakers of all levels and employees of public corporations have been ordered to take their children out of foreign schools immediately.
Failure to act will see officials jeopardising their chances of promotion, local media has reported.
The exact reason for the order is not yet clear.
But Russian political analyst Stanislav Belkovsky is quoted by the Daily Star as saying: ‘This is all part of the package of measures to prepare elites to some ‘big war’.’
Well, darn. I guess that reset button from Staples that Hillary Clinton gave to Russia still isn’t working. In fact, I really hope she’ll stop touting relations with Russia as one of her great achievements, because it’s looking more like a screw-up of Benghazi-proportions.
Now, you all remember that Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine both mocked Donald Trump and Mike Pence for saying that Vladimir Putin was a much better leader than Barack Obama? It’s come up in all three debates in one way or another. The left freaks out because how DARE you suggest that the scummy Putin is better than Our Lord and Savior Barack Obama? Obama made the tides recede and the sun shine and the planet began to heal and people of all races and backgrounds started to love each other!
I’ll wait while you finish laughing.
Here’s the thing: Putin is a scummy, scary guy. But if you want to talk just in strict leadership terms, he is a great leader for Russia. He genuinely cares about his country and his people. Oh sure, that caring about his country translates into trouble and suffering for everybody else. And the things he inspires in ordinary Russians is deeply troubling for America and the rest of the world (at the risk of invoking Godwin’s Law – an argument could be made that Hitler was a great leader too. He was great at leading his people to do terrible things for the “good” of their country).
Bottom Line: Putin’s getting all of his Russian citizens back into Russia before All Hell Breaks Loose. And America’s over here squabbling over which candidate does or does not condone grabbing women by their genitals.
I hate 2016. All around.
