Дорогие братцы и сестрицы,

    > THERE IS NO PROOF that the mother harmed him AT ALL.

    Is there any PROOF (or evidence) that Putin (or anybody else in Kremlin) personally ordered the murder of Litvinenko? Is there any likelihood that Yushchenko was poisoned by Kremlin?

    Ukraine president blames former ally for poisoning
    Published: Thursday, July 24, 2008, 10:15 PM

    President Viktor Yushchenko on Thursday accused the godfather of one of his children and member of his own political party of involvement in his near-fatal poisoning, a stunning twist. Asked Thursday at a news conference whether he thought Zhvania took part in the poisoning, Yushchenko answered: “I think yes, to put it mildly.”

    And yet, russophobes like you and your favorite cabbage tool – Charles Krauthammer – openly accuse Putin of ordering murder/poisoning of pretty much everybody, e.g.:

    That Murder in London

    Friday, December 8, 2006

    Or you can believe the testimony delivered on the only reliable lie detector ever invented — the deathbed — by the victim himself. Litvinenko directly accused Putin of killing him. In science, there is a principle called Occam’s razor. When presented with competing theories for explaining a natural phenomenon, one adopts the least elaborate. Do you think Anna Politkovskaya, the journalist who was investigating the war in Chechnya, was shot dead in her elevator by rogue elements? What about Viktor Yushchenko, the presidential candidate in Ukraine and eventual winner, poisoned with dioxin during the campaign, leaving him alive but disfigured? Ultranationalist Russians?
    The prosecution rests. We await definitive confirmation in Putin’s memoirs. Opponents of Putin have been falling like flies. Some jailed, some exiled, some killed. Too many layers of protection between the don and the hit man. The prosecution rests. We await definitive confirmation in Putin’s memoirs.

    You yourself even go so far as to falsely imply that Litvinenko, who was at that time a lowly KGB mafia thug, enforcer, killer and hit man, was a member of the honorable Kovalev Human Rights Commission for the President of Russia:

    The Putin Murders

    With Litvinenko out of the picture, the only member of the Kovalev Commission left unscathed is its chairman, dissident Sergei Kovalev

    Viktor Yushchenko, anti-Russian candidate for the presidency of the Ukraine, is poisoned by Dioxin.

    Paul Klebnikov (pictured, right), editor of the Russian edition Forbes magazine, is shot and killed in Moscow.


    Paul Klebnikov’s Murder: Cui Bono?

    Eurasia Daily Monitor 9July 11, 2004

    Klebnikov undoubtedly made enemies along the way. Most notably, he wrote an article for the U.S. edition of Forbes in 1996 entitled “Godfather of the Kremlin?” an expose of Boris Berezovsky, the then-powerful Kremlin insider now living in exile in London. Klebnikov’s charge was that Berezovsky ordered the 1995 murder of television journalist Vladislav Listyev. Klebnikov subsequently wrote a book entitled Godfather of the Kremlin: Boris Berezovsky and the Looting of Russia.

    Following Klebnikov’s murder, Berezovsky added: “In Russia, if you publish a list of the country’s richest people it’s like informing on them to the prosecutors. Somebody clearly did not like the way he operated and decided to sort it out with him, Russian-style, not through the English courts as I did” .

    Still others noted that Klebnikov’s second book, entitled “Conversation With a Barbarian”, was based on conversations with Khozh-Akhmed Nukhayev, a Chechen mafia boss and later a Chechen separatist leader. Klebnikov did not inform Nukhayev that he was turning their conversations into a book. Klebnikov’s book about Nukhayev caused “strong displeasure” within the Chechen diaspora, “authoritative Chechens”


    The publisher of Forbes’ Russian edition stated that the murder was “definitely linked” to Klebnikov’s journalism.[16]. In 1996, Klebnikov wrote a cover story for Forbes “Godfather of the Kremlin?”, comparing Boris Berezovsky to the Sicilian mafia. Klebnikov soon received death threats.[2] Klebnikov expanded the article into the 2000 book which described the privatization process under Yeltsin as “the robbery of the century” and detailed the alleged corruption of various Russian businesspeople, particularly focusing on Berezovsky.[13] Klebnikov released a second book, Conversation with a Barbarian: Interviews with a Chechen Field Commander on Banditry and Islam, in 2003, a lengthy interview with Chechen rebel leader Khozh-Ahmed Noukhayev[14].

    Various commentators have speculated that the magazine’s recent story on Russia’s 100 richest people may have triggered the attack.[17]

    Hi Kim,

    Thought I would get some discussions going here. You should be proud to find out that your article “Putin’s RuNet Crackdown” has been translated into Russian and has become a small cult favourite in Russia:

    Наступление Путина на рунет

    (“American Thinker“, США)
    Ким Зигфельд (Kim Zigfeld)

    Among your most entertaining claims (to the Russian taste) are:

    > Obama is actually working hard to reward Putin, by offering him most-favored nation trading status and admission to the lofty corridors of the World Trade Organization.

    Russia has been a WTO member for half a year now. As far as the “lofty” part goes, WTO numbers 158 member states, including such “lofty” “free trade”, luminaries as Zimbabwe (1995), Cuba (1995), Myanmar (1995), USA (1995), Uganda (1995), Mali (1995), Rwanda (1996), Congo (1997), Kyrgyz Republic (1998), Albania (2000), Angola (1996), Moldova (2001), Mongolia (1997), Cambodia (2004), Cameroon (1995), etc.

    > Russia is aggressively seeking to cut off Russian NGOs from American funding

    Russia’s ‘foreign agents’ law: no Bond thriller

    ­The real irony of Russia’s ‘foreign agents’ bill and the uproar it has sparked is that it practically mirrors an American law on the same subject, entitled the US Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). On the front page of FARA’s website, it clearly states that the purpose of FARA “is to insure that the US Government and the people of the United States are informed of the source of information (propaganda) and the identity of persons attempting to influence U.S. public opinion, policy, and laws.” In fact, it was this piece of “draconian” legislation that led to the arrest of Anna Chapman and 9 other less photogenic Russian nationals on US soil exactly two years ago. Despite all the media sensationalism that swirled around the story, and especially around Miss Chapman, what were the 10 Russians found guilty of? They were guilty of a simple bureaucratic technicality. Chapman and Co. pleaded guilty to “a charge of conspiracy to act as an agent of a foreign government without notifying the US Attorney General.

    1996 United States campaign finance controversy
    From Wikipedia
    China sought to direct contributions from foreign sources to the Democratic National Committee in violation of United States law forbidding non-American citizens or non-permanent residents from giving monetary donations to United States politicians and political parties.

    The United States Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA)

    The term “agent of a foreign principal” means:

    (1) any person any of whose activities are directly or indirectly financed or subsidized in whole or in major part by a foreign principal

    The term “foreign principal” includes—

    (2) any person outside of the United States

    Although the act was designed to apply to any foreign agent, in practice FARA frequently is used to target countries out of favor with an administration.[26]

    > Putin is convinced, as Hitler was convinced by Chamberlain, that the U.S. will not stand in his way, so he acts with unfettered brazenness and American values pay the ultimate price.

    Shouldn’t the U.S. be happy to see Russia adopt the bigoted US laws like FARA and the ban on foreign-owned media?

    > and even to purge the Russian language of “trash” like “Americanisms.”

    France’s Académie Française battles to protect language from English

    The Telegraph, 11 Oct 2011

    France’s Académie française, official custodians of the French language, has taken its battle to fight the invasion of English. The Académie, a council of 40 writers and artists, is entrusted with protecting French from “Anglo-Saxon” attacks and writing an official dictionary, of which the latest unfinished version began in 1992. One of its tasks is to come up with French equivalents to unwanted English words that slip into French.

    > Freedom House has also called Obama to task on his policy of appeasement, which Obama euphemistically calls “reset.” “Putin has overseen the worst deterioration in Russia’s democracy and human rights situation since the collapse of the Soviet Union”

    But that is peanuts compared with the US government’s commitment to torture in various jails from Abu Ghraib to Guantanamo to Eastern Europe. And the “Patriot Act” authorizes the Big Brother government to read our emails and to listen in on our phone conversations. Clearly, the USA is sliding towards the Orwellian Big Brother system.

    > deep-seated Russian hostility to the West isn’t going to change on its own. Without inspiring American leadership

    So, what actions on the part of the US government do you propose in order to eliminate the deep-seated hostility towards the US in Russia and everywhere else? Reducing new aggressions, invasions and occupations of other countries? Abolishing torture? Apologizing for the rapes of Panama, Yugoslavia, Iraq and of UN and the international law? Giving Kosovo back to Serbia? Stopping the support of anti-Christian Sunni extremists in Syria? Reducing the insane US military budget that equals to that of the rest of the World combined? Rebuilding Detroit at least to the point that it would no longer look worse than the poorest cities in Africa, or at least no worse than Dresden in 1945?

    > work towards American downfall.

    How is Russia “working towards American downfall”? Is it no longer buying US government bonds? Is it buying up US newspapers, magazines, radio or TV stations? That would be impossible. It is a crime here in the US for foreigners to own media outlets.

    Radio Liberty To Stop AM Radio Broadcasts In Russia

    KQED, October 18, 2012

    Radio Liberty executives were stymied by a recent Russian law that forbids foreign entities from owning a majority stake in any Russian broadcast license. Steve Korn, the president and CEO of Radio Liberty and Radio Free Europe, acknowledges that the law in the United States is similar.

    > newspapers were put under control long ago

    Didn’t I point out the fallacy of this claim a month or so ago? Remember the discussion over “Moskovsky Komsonolets”, “Novaya Gazeta”. “Kommersant” and other largest newspapers?

    > But his most powerful weapon is Obama, whose craven silence gives Putin a free hand to act without costs.

    Should leaders of Russia and other foreign countries devote their official efforts to meddling in the American internal affairs?

    Should Obama also officially condemn such horrific countries as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan, Kuwait, etc.? Or should Obama only meddle in the internal affairs of the countries that you, Kim, personally hate?

    In any case, what exactly do you want Obama to do in order to lift the “deep-seated Russian hostility towards the West”?

    > It’s time for the American people to ask themselves whether they are comfortable having history record that their generation revived the horror of Russian totalitarianism that their ancestors worked so hard to lay in its grave.

    What exactly did the American “ancestors” do in order to eliminate the “deep-seated Russian hostility towards the West”?

    In fact, isn’t there a long-standing deep-seated American hostility towards Russia and the East? How else do you explain the anti-Russian anti-Yeltsin actions like the 1996 NATO eastward expansion and the rape of Serbia in 1999? What else was it, if not a direct provocation aimed at making Russians anti-Western, anti-democratic, anti-Yeltsin, and at encouraging them to elect an anti-Western dictator like Putin? You reap what you sow. Clearly, the US military lobby needed and needs Putin in order to scare (using propagandists like yourself) the American taxpayers into parting with close to $1 trillion per year for the sake of warmongering. The American media begrudges every $1 billion spent on education, the elderly and health care but ignores the elephant in the room – the $1 trillion military budget. Romney’s biggest “budget cutting” proposal was cutting $300 million from public television and adding $hundreds of billions to the Pentagon budget. Only Romney’s defeat saved (temporarily) the US government from bankruptcy. So, Obama and Democrats are clearly the lesser of the two evils. Three evils, if you count the Tea Party separate from the Republicans.
