‘Hello, how are you?’ Roy Moore’s ‘fluent Russian’ causes a stir (VIDEO)

During an interview with a Guardian reporter, Moore was told that the former US president Ronald Reagan said once that Russia was the “focus of evil in the modern world.” The outspoken Republican Senate candidate was compelled to reply: “You could say that very well about America, couldn’t you? We promote a lot of bad things, you know?”

Asked to provide an example, Moore unhesitatingly stated: “Same-sex marriage.” To the remark “that’s the very argument that Vladimir Putin makes” [about same-sex marriage], Moore told the journalist: “Well, then maybe Putin is right. Maybe he’s more akin to me than I know.”

Asked what he would say to Putin if he met him, Moore said, laughing, “Hello, how are you today?” in Russian, sparking a media frenzy.

This was enough for some to start praising Moore’s “fluent” language skills.

Others were less focused on Moore’s language skills as his sexual mores.

Last month the Washington Post published a report detailing the accounts of four women who accused the former Supreme Court Judge of sexual assault. All of the women said they were between the ages of 14 and 18 when Moore allegedly assaulted them. Moore has denied the allegations, which he called “the very definition of fake news.”

“These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign,” Moore said, according to The Hill.

‘Madam Secretary’ Fantasizes About Hillary Holding Russian Leakers ‘Accountable’

There’s no doubt that CBS’s Madam Secretary was inspired from the beginning by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Despite an overcrowded season of topics ranging from fake news stories to the Earth fighting back against global warming, the show finally returns to its roots for another Hillary fantasy. This time, she takes on the infamous but also fictional Russian leaks.

The December 10 episode “Minefield” continues a growing plot of the administrative team discovering a leak of military secrets to the Russians from within the United States government itself. Unlike the real-life, year-long investigation that has found next to nothing regarding Russian collusion, Henry McCord’s (Tim Daly) CIA team quickly discovers proof of Majority Leader Beau Carpenter (John Cullum) leaking information to foreign agents. His reason? Bailing his son out of a potential prison sentence after borrowing from Russian bankers.

The allusions to Trump’s nonexistent Russian connections or those of his son are fortunately limited in this episode, but the show is clearly airing out some of its Russia grievances. Henry confronts Carpenter on the results of his leaks saying, “I sent courageous, dedicated Americans into the field, and they trusted us. They trusted you to have their backs, and you… betrayed them. So you could keep your son out of a Club Fed for a couple of years? What about their families? Those families won’t even know how they died. I can barely live with it. How can you?” The bold words cause Carpenter to crumble in murmurs of “What have I done?” as he recognizes the consequences of his selfish actions. I can almost see the liberals salivating at the thought of this moment occurring in real life with President Trump.

Then there’s also the final words by Madam Secretary herself Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni). She declares, “Russia just pulled off the highest-level infiltration of our government in our history. And I intend to do everything in my power to hold them accountable.” Even I can imagine the former presidential candidate saying this line, mostly because Hillary enjoys holding everyone accountable except herself. The idea of the good and daring woman leading the charge against Russia following “the highest-level infiltration” of the government must have practically wrote itself for this show. Too bad for them that this world is fictional.

Sadly, that’s not all we’re left with at the end. The episode drops multiple hints that Elizabeth could be seeking a presidential run eventually. With such an audacious threat from Russian agents, I’m sure there’s still one more political event these liberal writers would like to rewrite.

Russian Orthodox Patriarch Warns Of Approaching Apocalypse

Home » Breaking News, Europe, Religion » Russian Orthodox Patriarch Warns Of Approaching Apocalypse


Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia

In a public speech in the main Moscow cathedral, Patriarch Kirill said the signs from the Book of Revelation are now apparent. He also called on politicians and ordinary citizens to unite and stop the movement towards the abyss.

“All people who love the Motherland must be together because we are entering a critical period in the course of human civilization. This can already be seen with the naked eye. You have to be blind not to notice the approaching awe-inspiring moments in history that the apostle and evangelist John was talking about in the Book of Revelation,” the patriarch was quoted as saying by Interfax.

Patriarch Kirill added, however, that the exact time of the end times depends on everyone’s actions. He called on people to understand their responsibility regarding Russia and the whole of mankind, and to stop “the movement towards the end of history’s abyss.”

He emphasized that many representatives of the modern Russian intelligentsia are repeating the mistakes made by their predecessors, who led the country into the ruinous revolutionary events of the early 20th century.

“Today is the wrong time to rock the boat of human passions because there is already too much negative influence on people’s spiritual lives,” Kirill said.

Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia turned 71 on Monday. After holding mass in Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral, the Holy Synod presented the head of the Russian Orthodox Church with a copy of ceremonial headwear worn by Patriarch Tikhon – the man who was elected head of the Church 100 years ago.

CAS registers lawsuits from 22 Russian athletes against lifetime Olympic bans

The cases were received just one day after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) disqualified Russia from the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, AP reports.

The IOC took the decision to ban Russia from sending a team to the Games, but says it will permit Russian athletes who have never been found guilty of doping – and have undergone stricter doping tests since April – to compete as independent athletes under a neutral flag.

The 22 athletes, which includes Sochi gold medalist Alexander Zubkov, Alexander Legkov and Aleksandr Tretyakov, are understood to have requested that the CAS make a decision on their cases before the Pyeongchang Games open on February 9.

Following the IOC verdict, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov urged Russia to ‘exclude emotions’ in reaction to the decision, in anticipation of further contact with the organization on any future action.

“Now of course, we need to exclude emotion and seriously analyze the decision made in relation to our country, before making any judgement on it,” Peskov told journalists, TASS reported.

“We are faced with answering a series of issues, which will demand contact with the IOC. We must determine how and by whom this contact will be carried out. A series of other technical issues are also subject to clarification,” he added.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday, that the ban on Russia is part of “a massive offensive” to “isolate” the country.

Veteran Russian liberal names ‘Putin and his policies’ as main opponents at forthcoming elections

My main opponent is Vladimir Putin and his policies. He is my main and, in reality, my only opponent. As for the rest of them – everybody can do whatever he or she wants, within the framework of the law,” Yavlinsky told reporters at a press conference in Moscow.

The politician added, however, that he was not offended by statements suggesting that his only possible contender was Kseniya Sobchak – a 36-year-old reporter and former ‘it girl’ who has also announced her intention to run for the Russian presidency in March 2018.

Yavlinsky also told journalists that he considered the whole population of the Russian Federation as his voters, as he represented the interests of “the society as a whole.”

The presidential hopeful is a co-founder of the liberal political party Yabloko, which has a liberal, pro-business agenda. In February 2016, he became one of the first Russian politicians to announce their intention to participate in the 2018 presidential elections as a candidate. In March this year, Yavlinsky presented his election program, which is built around the promise to grant every Russian citizen a free one-acre plot of land on which to build a home.

Yavlinsky’s previous attempts to run for the Russian presidency have been unsuccessful. He received 7.35 percent of votes in 1996, and 5.8 percent in 2000. In 2012, he was withdrawn from the race after the Elections Commission discovered that a large share of his supporters’ signatures were invalid.

At the time of Yavlinsky’s statement, Vladimir Putin had not yet announced his plans concerning the forthcoming presidential campaign.

Russian Foreign Ministry: 2018 Olympics banis yet another attempt to "isolate" the country

Olympic Committee


The International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) decision to ban the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) from the 2018 Winter Games in PyeongChang is yet another attempt to “isolate” the country, the Russian Foreign Ministry says.

The IOC ban, which allows Russian athletes to compete only as neutrals in the February Olympics, shows how Russia is forcefully “squeezed out of world sports,” ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday. While previous attempts to isolate the country failed, the 2018 Olympics ban came as a new plan, the official said.

It’s a massive offensive. I think [the IOC decision] is linked to the fact that a head-on attempt to isolate Russia, which has been proclaimed as an anti-Russia campaign, fell apart, it failed. No isolation happened. But there is still a desire for one, and there are also opportunities [to force it],” Zakharova said during a foreign ministry briefing.

The IOC decision is partly a result of “political pressure” on the international sporting authority, according to the ministry spokeswoman. She added that the athletes have fallen victims to baseless accusations.

On Tuesday, a panel of IOC officials ruled that “clean” Russian athletes can only compete under a neutral flag, banning the national team from participation. This means athletes will not take part in the opening ceremony, and their country’s anthem will not be played if they win any medals. No officials from Russia’s sport ministry will be allowed accreditation in PyeongChang.

The decision is based on the results of two separate investigations of alleged doping violations, with Moscow categorically denying the narrative of a state doping program. Russia is now expected to announce its plans with regard to the 2018 Olympics on December 12. Ahead of the announcement of the ban, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said Moscow had no plans to boycott the Games.

Russian lawmakers blast Pentagon’s latest statement on Syria as ‘lies and lack of principles’

The statement is nothing new, the same typical snobbery. Even with total resistance from the US special services, those who know how much Russia and the Syrian military forces have done, how many lives were lost, simply cannot say that Russia has done nothing,” Senator Frants Klintsevich, deputy head of the Upper House Committee for Defense and Security, told RBC in response to remarks by Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon.

Nothing is sacred to these people. Now leading news agencies around the world that are being managed by them will tell us that they are the greatest. And we will disprove this,” Klintsevich added. “I think that, in the nearest future, the Americans will face a great disappointment. They have installed so many time bombs for themselves.”

A member of the Lower House Committee for Defense, Pavel Dorokhin (Communist Party), described the Pentagon’s statement as an attempt to retake the lost initiative in the Middle East. “Of course, the merit of freeing Syria belongs to Russia. We have seen it in the news every day as the land was liberated, piece by piece,” he said.

The American state used special mechanisms to depose the Syrian government and they used other gangs for it, apart from the Islamic State. When it became clear that the plan is going to end in fiasco, they attempted to regain the initiative, but they failed,” Dorokhin told reporters.  

The comments came soon after Pentagon spokesperson Eric Pahon said in an interview with Sputnik that the Syrian government and the Russian Federation had allegedly demonstrated insufficient seriousness or commitment to defeating the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) terrorist group. “They have only conducted a fraction of counter-ISIS operations, and most of the territory liberated in Iraq and Syria has been liberated through the efforts of the global coalition and its partners,” Pahon said, adding that the US-led coalition would continue to operate in Syria.

On Monday, President Vladimir Putin said that almost all of Syria’s territory has been liberated from terrorists. “The situation in this country [Syria] is gradually changing. The Syrian armed forces, supported by the Russian military, have liberated from terrorists almost the whole territory of the country, including historic Christian regions,” Putin told a major congress of Orthodox Christian bishops in Moscow.

On the same day, a representative of the Russian military group in Syria Major General Yevgeny Poplavskiy said that in the coming days, the whole territory of Syria east of the Euphrates River would be freed from terrorists.

Prosecutors say Manafort worked on op-ed with Russian while out on bail



Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was ghostwriting an op-ed while out on bail last month with a Russian who has ties to the Russian intelligence service, Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Muller’s team said Monday.

In a new filing Monday afternoon, Mueller’s investigators said Manafort was working on an editorial in English as late as last Thursday and that it related to his political work for Ukraine, which factored into his money-laundering and foreign lobbying criminal charges.

The filing asks for the court to revisit a bail agreement Mueller’s office and Manafort’s lawyers made jointly last week. The court had not yet approved a change to his $10 million unsecured bail and house arrest.

“Even if the ghostwritten op-ed were entirely accurate, fair, and balanced, it would be a violation of this Court’s November 8 Order if it had been published,” prosecutors wrote. “The editorial clearly was undertaken to influence the public’s opinion of defendant Manafort, or else there would be no reason to seek its publication (much less for Manafort and his long-time associate to ghostwrite it in another’s name).

“Manafort has pleaded not guilty to the charges. The bail agreement the lawyers appeared to have reached would have freed him from house arrest and GPS monitoring while asking him to post more than $11 million in real estate as collateral. Prosecutors have argued since his arrest October 30 that Manafort is a flight risk.

The judge in the case ordered in early November for Manafort, his lawyers and the prosecutors to “refrain from making statements to the media or in public settings that pose a substantial likelihood of material prejudice to this case.

“Prosecutors also have asked the court for the ability to submit details about Manafort’s Russian contact and the op-ed under seal, so they would remain confidential.

The judge has a status conference scheduled in the case for December 11.
