How About Some Russian News – (November 3rd, 2011)

Lets look at what the airwaves are buzzing about in Russia?

Occupy Wall Street protesters declared victory after thousands of demonstrators shut down one of America’s busiest shipping ports late on Wednesday. Now I have got to say that Russian bloggers are lit up about this issue called the Occupy Wall Street. Now Russian mass media had really taken the ball after realizing that the bloggers are all discussing, America and her hypocrisies and Europe is now coming into focus because they are having their own Wall Street Occupancies. In fact the Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov pointed his finger point blank and said, “While having the right to ask us questions our Western partners do not want to discuss their own problems. Their problems are not few in number, and in fact are increasing. How they are dealing with the Occupy Wall Street protests gives ample illustration of how many of our colleagues and partners in some Western countries employ double standards,”  Grani.ru reported…

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev will make an official visit to Germany November 7 and 8 to attend the ceremony of the launch of the Nord Stream gas pipeline, the Kremlin press service said on Thursday. Now I have got to tell you that this pipeline will tame many a beast in transit countries. Just wait for South Stream to be finished…

Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou’s call for a referendum on the bailout deal (a package to rescue the Greek economy the EU proposed on October 26 – 27 that includes drastic austerity measures) has disrupted the G20 summit in Cannes. Did you ever wonder what happened that we became so stupid that we created a world that one little country could collapse the financial system due to repercussions? Seems like a bunch of “bull hockey” to me…

A regional court in Russia’s Altai region found the local head of the Jehovah’s Witnesses guilty of extremism on Thursday and sentenced him to 100 hours of community service. Now I can understand why? I had lots of issues with the Jehovah’s Witnesses in the USA. Believe you me it will not get any better. (tisk tisk tisk)

Russia said on Thursday it would push for Viktor Bout’s return following his conviction in an arms deal case by the United States. The famed evil Russian arms dealer has been convicted by a jury that unanimously agreed that Bout was guilty of conspiracy to kill Americans, to acquire and use anti-aircraft missiles and to provide material support to terrorists. OMG now he is a terrorist… (shhhh – do not say that word to loud for they are listening (you know they!)…) Now what did the US of A government just do in Libya? Oh yes, the same thing but in different words…

Russia may join the World Trade Organization this year, bringing to a close an 18 year accession process. With each new year, the claim that “we will join the WTO by year-end” came to sound more and more like that famous Jewish pronouncement each Passover, “Next year in Jerusalem!” People stopped believing in it. Lets hope that is does not happen again and save Russia from the disaster called WTO…

We are going to end with this:

U.S. President Barack Obama has topped Forbes’ list of the world’s most powerful people in 2011 with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin taking second. Cool ole Putin is one bad ass dude considering he is not even a president of Russia. So that means to me when Putin is again president of Russia, he will be number one most powerful dude on earth… 🙂
