Demonizing Putin's Russia

Wed, Nov 2, 2016 - 8:56am

The level of suspicion and vitriol toward Russia has reached levels not seen even during the previous Cold War. This unprecedented and extremely dangerous rhetoric shows no sign of relenting so, this week, Professor Cohen seeks to explain and educate so that we all might have a better understanding of the Russian point of view.

This week's program will take you back to your college days...or give you a sense of what college is supposed to entail. "Higher education" was never intended to be the indoctrination that it has become. Instead, college used to be where you were taught to think critically. There, you might also be exposed to perspective and background that challenges original assumptions and broadens your understanding of the world around you. Stephen F. Cohen is a scholar and college professor, and in this week's program you'll feel transported to his classroom for a one hour course on Russian history and Russian affairs.

Please take the time to listen to this week's JBSFC. Politicians and their sycophant media are going to great lengths to paint Russia as some kind of grave threat to NATO and "the west" and you can expect this to continue, regardless of the outcome of the American election. It is therefore incumbent upon you, my dear reader, to be armed with knowledge and facts, not lies and hyperbole. Listening to these weekly programs from Mr. Batchelor and Professor Cohen is one of the best ways we've found to accomplish this mission.

Random thoughts

The Obama Administration has had 8 years of dealing with Russia, they had the Russian 'reset' etc. During this tenure we have had the Ukraine situation and Russian involvement in Syria. Now the Russians are involved in American Politics? And on one side, against the current administration's party. Perhaps. At best maybe. I just do not think the Russians can like a loose cannon like Trump any better then Clinton.

Good Luck All...

Well ...

The empty squirt gun didn't impress them much either over the last 8 years.

@batting500 - confounded (9:14am post)

Batting500 - people like you confound me ........... how on Earth can you put Hillary Clinton and Trump in the same category? Seriously - have you not been reading what is widely available (admittedly, not on the MSM)? I'm not even going to go into details - I have found that it is a waste of time with people like you.

Preet Bharara– The Hero You Never Heard Of..

Preet Bharara is the U.S. Prosecuting Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Pray for him. It was he and the New York Police Department (NYPD) that have forced the FBI into doing its job with respect to Hillary Clinton and her emails.

It was the NYPD that discovered the full, uncut, actual emails on Anthony Wiener’s laptop, but more importantly, it was the NYPD and Preet Bharara who brought the information forward instead of trying to paper it over.

They forced the FBI’s hand. They made it impossible for Director Comey to cover Hillary’s butt and his own at the same time. It’s one or the other, Jack. And I can just hear the conversation going down:

The Boys in Blue: “I don’t give a crap. She’s guilty. Book her.”

Men in Tights: “Wh-wh-whuddya mean? She was the sec-sec-Secretary of St-St-State…..she’s BILL CLINTON’S wife! Sh-sh-she’s running for PRESIDENT. You can’t prosecute her no matter what she did.”

The Boys in Blue: “Book the Bitch.”

Men in Tights: “Whhaaat?”

The Boys in Blue: “You heard me. Book her. Write her up.”

Men in Tights: “Wha-wh-wait! We have jurisdiction! We’ll take the case over!”

The Boys in Blue: (grimly) “Yeah, now you’ll do it. Did you finally find a dozen eggs somewhere?”

Of course, this is just my rendition, but I know how they talk when the girls aren’t around (actually a lot spicier than this sometimes, but dogs and children may be reading) and I know how much guts it took to flush the FBI toilet.

I also know that there are plenty of Americans right now who wouldn’t spit on the best part of FBI Director Comey if someone could find it and point it out.

Comey’s disgusting admissions that Hillary was guilty but wouldn’t be charged shocked the nation, but they didn’t shock me. I watched the footage from Benghazi. I heard nasty little Rodriguez relieve General Carter Ham of command. I knew what to think then and I know what to think now.

The brave men of the NYPD who are actually responsible for the second FBI investigation of Mrs. Clinton’s emails and who faithfully did their jobs, are now targets for the Clinton Mafia and the Bar Association thugs and DNC and FBI– which doesn’t appreciate having its laundry cleaned for them in public no matter how filthy dirty it is.

Watch for the small print announcements of deaths and obituaries in New York, looking for Preet Bharara’s name and the names of men and women working for the NYPD Investigations Unit. Make it your business to check in on Preet’s health in the coming days. Pray for him. Light a candle.

Better still, pay attention and if anything happens to him or his family or even his dog —- come down on the media and the politicians and the FBI like the Wrath of God.

Any attempt to wave any flags and claim that the FBI has redeemed itself by reopening the Hillary Files needs to be doused with the real world facts of the matter. It was the NYPD that held the line and did the job and forced the FBI to do theirs.

Now, it’s true that NYPD has its share of dirty cops and New York has more than its share of dirty politicians, but like the actual Mafia, they still have a soul. The “people”— and I use the word lightly — lying and covering up for Hillary don’t.

Somewhere between the pate and the second round of caviar, they lost theirs.

For them, everything is for sale. Everything is relative. The only good is their own good. The only danger is not being politically correct in public, or telling the truth. And there is precious little chance of that happening.

Thank you, Preet Bharara, for doing that simple, extraordinary thing: telling the truth. I will remember your name and look for you among the heroes of all that is good.

Channeling my inner trader dick

As you may recall I said this:

It has played out about as I thought. No surprises. I did not play it because I didn't like the risk for the amount of reward, just in case there was a surprise. For those who did play, we may be about to bump our heads...

Re; Preet Bharara– The Hero You Never Heard Of..

Everybody in upstate NY knows who Preet Bharara is and we are all waiting for him to take down Andrew Cuomo a pure psychopath. Preet got rid of Silver and Skelos and now working on insiders close to the delta bravo Cuomo. They all have Cuomo stink on them so it is only a matter of time before Preet finds the origin of the stink in the governor's office.

Lintltj5 · Nov 2, 2016 - 2:41pm


We can only hope here in Upstate NY that Preet takes down that scumbag Cuomo soon. One of the worst politicians in NY history.
