Evil Russians charged with espionage, one arrested in New York
Is it a spy, or is it an investigative journalist? Does anyone care any longer? Does anyone know? Does it matter? The U.S. is laying the groundwork for a move against evil Russian media, a move against evil Chinese media, a move against enhanced border control, a move enhancing visa control, and a move to shut the Americans in; just because…. (Terrorism you know?)
Americans seem more and more like a group of unfortunately brain-damaged people sitting in the lounge of an insane asylum, making crazy quilts, trying to put back together a world they deconstructed and can no longer understand, nor, therefore care to understand…
One thing seems clear and that is the extreme vulnerability of the U.S. to anything resembling reality and so if presented with an actual existential threat, they will crumble. Therefore the need, desire, and urgency to seal the world out, as we coerce the inner peasants…
From the Guardian: They were also accused of helping a “leading Russian state-owned news organization,” gather information which would help the Russia’s foreign intelligence service, the SVR…
The complaint does not name the offending news organization, but the complaint adds: “The News Organization has been publicly identified by former SVR agents as an organization that is sometimes used by Russian intelligence to gain access to and gather intelligence under cover of the news media.”
In recent years, the evil Kremlin has made a push into western countries with state organizations such as evil RT and evil Sputnik launching English-language versions and opening bureaus around the world.”

Statement by the President on Actions in Response to Russian Malicious Cyber Activity and Harassment
Today, I have ordered a number of actions in response to the Russian government’s aggressive harassment of U.S. officials and cyber operations aimed at the U.S. election. These actions follow repeated private and public warnings that we have issued to the Russian government, and are a necessary and appropriate response to efforts to harm U.S. interests in violation of established international norms of behavior.
All Americans should be alarmed by Russia’s actions. In October, my Administration publicized our assessment that Russia took actions intended to interfere with the U.S. election process. These data theft and disclosure activities could only have been directed by the highest levels of the Russian government. Moreover, our diplomats have experienced an unacceptable level of harassment in Moscow by Russian security services and police over the last year. Such activities have consequences. Today, I have ordered a number of actions in response.
I have issued an executive order that provides additional authority for responding to certain cyber activity that seeks to interfere with or undermine our election processes and institutions, or those of our allies or partners. Using this new authority, I have sanctioned nine entities and individuals: the GRU and the FSB, two Russian intelligence services; four individual officers of the GRU; and three companies that provided material support to the GRU’s cyber operations. In addition, the Secretary of the Treasury is designating two Russian individuals for using cyber-enabled means to cause misappropriation of funds and personal identifying information. The State Department is also shutting down two Russian compounds, in Maryland and New York, used by Russian personnel for intelligence-related purposes, and is declaring “persona non grata” 35 Russian intelligence operatives. Finally, the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are releasing declassified technical information on Russian civilian and military intelligence service cyber activity, to help network defenders in the United States and abroad identify, detect, and disrupt Russia’s global campaign of malicious cyber activities.
These actions are not the sum total of our response to Russia’s aggressive activities. We will continue to take a variety of actions at a time and place of our choosing, some of which will not be publicized. In addition to holding Russia accountable for what it has done, the United States and friends and allies around the world must work together to oppose Russia’s efforts to undermine established international norms of behavior, and interfere with democratic governance. To that end, my Administration will be providing a report to Congress in the coming days about Russia’s efforts to interfere in our election, as well as malicious cyber activity related to our election cycle in previous elections.
