      @Eagle Eyes Hey what are you and your boyfriend’s doing tonight besides the usual mouth and bottom sex?

    • it has been quite remarkable. given the political instability before him with that began with Gorbachev and then Yeltsin also could not hold on.

    • @Thimble Russians have never lived as good as they live now, I know this for sure because I’m Russian. So, please don’t call my president a dictator, I voted for him and he won if this is not a democracy then I don’t know what is. Please stop spreading your russophobic bullshit.

      Mifsud and Epstein are the latest in a long list of Clinton family associates and acquaintances who died mysteriously or committed suicide before their public testimony. In 2016 CBS Las Vegas posted a list of 46 – Bill and Hillary Clinton associates – alleged to have died under mysterious circumstances. Not included in this list are the 4 heroes killed in Benghazi. And today you can add multi-millionaire 🤢 Jeffrey Epstein and Mifsud to the list. Truth will all come out soon 🔴
      CIA/FBI Traitors, while cheating in corruption! ”CIA Traitor Colby said: “The CIA owns‼️everyone of any significance in the major media”. 🇺🇸 CIA’s Michael Morell (Traitor Deputy Director): “The intelligence ‘deep state’ did in fact go to war‼️with Trump”. CIA Director Traitor Casey (1981): “We know our Disinformation Program is complete when everything the American public believes it is false”‼️

      We still have to work on the crass vulgarity and the vitriol.

  4. Put a bonnet on him and he looks my exactly like my nan.

  5. Read Psychic Nikki’s predictions for 2020 on Putin. 😲

  6. People need to remember the state of Russia after the fall of the Soviet union and how the west treated them. Yeltsin however lovable ,was so ineffectual in raising Russia from the ashes.

      Debatable. He did quite a bit in the ~9 years he held power. You sound like you took an undergrad class, and took the opinion of a professor who didn’t do his/her major doctoral research in Russian politics.

    • @Lucretia Bailey no, ima just a non-Russia Brit who has been fascinated by Russia for years. I don’t deny the murder of his political opponents or his heinous treatment of the LGBT community is something that should ever be accepted but he did bring Russia back from the brink. And yes I think he should go as he has been corrupted by his own success.

    • @jeremy carter Brink of what due tell?

    • And you think Putin making missiles, and occupying Georgia, and Ukraine makes things better, they will be back in Ashes once Putin dies

      @David Butler please explain how they switched sides. Because no one switched sides. Name one Republican that was a KKK. And I will name 100 Democrats that were. And I’m black So. 🤔

    • @RickK RocKStar After the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the Repbulican party’s core base shifted, with the Southern states becoming more reliably Republican in presidential politics and the Northeastern states becoming more reliably Democratic. White voters increasingly identified with the Republican Party after the 1960s. Following the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade, the Republican Party opposed abortion in its party platform and grew its support among evangelicals.[3] The Republican Party won five of the six presidential elections from 1968 to 1988. Two-term President Ronald Reagan, who held office from 1981 to 1989, was a transformative party leader whose conservative policies called for reduced government spending and regulation, lower taxes and a strong anti-Soviet Union foreign policy. Reagan’s influence upon the party persisted into the next century. Education is your friend sir.

    • @RickK RocKStar Also if you’d like I will name you many Republican slave owners who where friends of Lincoln. Along with establishing the Republikkkans party.

    • @RickK RocKStar You see good sir those democrats who where the KKK onky changed their title to Republican. An then took the robes off an became law enforcement, judges, congress men, and USA presidents.

  8. Our coming core should be love all like your kids baby bunny in woods if one gets in street stop say no baby bunny watch out perdy we can do this with words

  10. Bleach anime koga story🙃amazing it is

  11. We will have more flexibility after the election, ” WHOS THAT FROM?”

    • It makes no sense to me why this quote is repeatedly recycled within the context of it being some manner of “smoking gun” evidence of wrongdoing on Obama’s part. It literally has nothing to do with any subversive negotiations at all. It doesn’t even make “strategic propaganda” sense given the current administration shouted “Russia, if you are listening, please get those emails” (paraphrased) from a podium. Are you just spreading propaganda, or is this actually supposed to mean something?

    • @Kaleb Williams deflected from what stupid.. my post?

      @Banned B!!!! That was from Obama and to Medvedev. Nothing he said was controversial because he negotiating with Russia. The reason it’s brought up is because of GOP talking points and desperation to take attention off of Trump.

      @Sol Manilla i just notice your post. You have excellent writing skills. I need to recycle your response. When ever an Always Temper pretends that quote was actually controversial, I can hit then with facts.

  12. The Headline is an obvious statement, unless someone else has been running Russia for 20 years.🤔

  13. Trump be like, “I want to rule for 20 years too!”

    • It’s possible because his first term was ruined by democrats and their witch hunt. He can go to court with that and ask for at least one more term.

      @alex silent Not possible. Presidential term limits specify no more that two “elections,” and if Congress has the power to nullify a president’s term, which it doesn’t, it would also need to nullify the 2016 election.
