Russian women don’t need your help Amanda Foreman. But let’s examine the UK’s liberal, feminist value system that you find so righteous and peace loving

The UK’s Sunday Times published a truly astonishing, hateful piece of garbage. Extraordinary even by Western standards, mocking Russian women, labelling the country as misogynistic, and trashing the Christian Orthodox faith. We could not let this post fly without a response.

Amanda Foreman’s article for UK’s The Sunday Times, entitled, “A view from afar: Chest-beating Putin aims his vilest weapon at the West — misogyny” is disturbingly misogynistic. It is also extremely misandrist and openly racists towards Russian and Orthodox Christians.

Their are 3 probable and logical explanations as to why someone of Ms. Foreman’s reputation would pen such a hateful and poorly researched piece.

1. She is simply folding into the Western MSM party line…writing yet another propaganda hit piece against Russia and it’s President, in order to move the needle one inch closer towards division, conflict and war. Maybe she will be rewarded for her loyalty by the neo-conservative/neo-liberal sociopaths behind the curtain.

2. She is an angry and jealous women filled with sadness and envy after visiting Russia. What she saw was a society where the neo-liberal value system did not stick, and they were happier for it. Seeing a country proud in its tradition, leadership, religion and history shook up the author…and in order to compensate for those feelings, this post was born.

3. Is a trick. Yeah that’s right. Her post all about fooling western women into believing they are happy (when study after study suggests they are not…please google it and you will see what I mean), and tricking Russian women into believing they should behave like their western neighbours. Don’t fall for it. Russian society and Russian women are on the right path towards a better, more fulfilling life. Don’t let people like Ms. Foreman fool you into thinking their Western cat filled, Kim Kardashian, bar hopping days are enviable. It’s a path to debt, over consumption and emptiness.

I tend to believe that all three of the above reasons influenced, and eventually drove Ms. Foreman into writing her Sunday Times attack piece. What is remarkable about the entire rant, aside from how factually off the entire article is, is how hypocritical and racist this women comes out looking.

First some of the facts, for which Ms. Foreman should have done some very basic research into before making the claims she made in her post:

As for the article itself, it should be read as a case study in Russophobia rather than as a discussion of the position of women in Russia. We do not recognize reality in the article’s descriptions of Russia, Putin or Russian women and men (even the article admits that “boys and girls receive the same education and the same access to healthcare. There are no legal barriers to women owning property, having bank accounts or participating in the economy”).

As a matter of historical record many Bolsheviks were early feminists including the feminist pioneer and Soviet minister and diplomat Alexandra Kollontai and Russian women obtained and fully exercised rights of divorce and abortion long before most western women did.

Today there are many successful women in business, the arts and politics including the Chairman of the Russian Parliament’s Upper House, Valentina Matveyenko, and the Head of the Central Bank, Elvira Nabiullina. Incidentally the Judge who tried Tolokonnikova and Alyokhina (interviewed by the author) was also a woman.

Oh and just for the record, Victoria Nuland is indeed married to historian Robert Kagan. What Ms. Foreman forgot to mention is that Mr. Kagan is much more than a historian, he is a chief neo-con from a family of neo-cons (does the PNAC ring a bell?), directly responsible, not only for the Maidan coup, but also for the US – Iraq invasion of 2003…more on that later.

KAGAN-PNAC-FAMILY

Now the hypocrisy, oh the hypocrisy, where do I begin.

Amanda Foreman begins her post stating she has “visited a fair number of countries this year in the course of filming a documentary series on the history of women.” Well we suggest Ms. Foreman get on a plane and visit some countries that it appears she might have missed…or maybe she visited these places but was simply to wrapped up in her western ‘exceptionalism’ that she did not take time to notice the suffering of women and children, committed by her beloved neo-liberal value system.

Maybe Ms. Foreman should go to Iraq and speak to the millions of families torn apart by the US and UK ‘bombs of peace’  that have claimed the lives of 1,455,590 people. How many women died in Iraq? How many women lost their sons, daughters, husbands, fathers and mothers in Iraq? How many women’s hearts did your UK neo-liberal values break in Iraq?

Maybe Ms. Foreman should travel to Serbia. She should speak to the wives, mothers, and daughters who lost everything in NATO airstrikes that lasted from March 24, 1999 to June 10, 1999. How many women suffered, in the heart of Europe, so your neo-liberal values could flex their muscles, and ethnically cleanse thousands of Orthodox Christians. How many women’s heart did you break in Serbia?

How about Ms. Foreman visits Afghanistan, Libya, Syria and see the devastation, destruction and death that results from her neo-liberal dogma she champions so much.

Tired of the death your brand of feminism and social justice brings. Then Ms. Foreman should take a quick trip to Eurozone countries Greece, Spain, Italy, or Cyprus and see all the broken, homeless women pillaging through rubbish for something to eat…a direct result of European neo-liberal austerity.

Finally, let’s give Ms. Foreman a ticket to the Donbass, so she can live in a basement, in the dark with no heat, food or water…like the mothers and daughters of Novorussia do right now. Their homes get shelled day and night by this guy (below), who champions and kills in the name of Ms Foreman’s ‘European value system.’

After Donbass, Ms. Foreman can travel to Crimea and see a society that avoided the bloodshed her lovely Mrs. Nuland instigated, and bear witness to what real human rights and democracy look like…not one human life, not one women was killed thanks to Putin’s decision to protect Crimea.

Ms. Foreman’s path for women’s liberation is a path of death, debt and enslavement. If that is not misogyny, than I don’t know what is.

Ms. Foreman’s post is not only misogynistic, it is racist. It offends Orthodox Christians and Slavic people. Was it not enough to bomb Serbia to kingdom come, now you have to ethnically cleanse Orthodox Christians in Eastern Ukraine as well.

Tell us all Ms. Foreman, what is so wrong with a country wanting to embrace its history and religion, is this a crime. Last time I checked the UK was also a Christian country at its heart. What scares Ms. Foreman so much about ‘traditional’ religion? Is it because it gives people hope, love and inspiration…all qualities that the neo-liberal feminist despises, and can do without.

Why doesn’t Ms Foreman go to Saudi Arabia, or UAE, Indonesia or Turkey and explain to the Muslim population in those countries to do away with the teachings of Islam? I was under the impression that neo-liberal values were about acceptance and tolerance…unless of course you are of Orthodox faith, then in that case you either need to submit to western rule or be wiped out.

Be careful Ms. Foreman because Russians, Greeks, Bulgarians, Romanians, Serbians, and many more people subscribe to the Christian Orthodox faith, and when pushed, they will push back with a mighty force.

So next time, when Pussy Riot considers sticking rubber chickens in their vaginas, while inside the beautiful and sacred St. Basil’s cathedral, tell them to go to the Great Mosque at Mecca or The Wailing Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem and let’s see what fate will await them. Or maybe Pussy Riot can perform inside St. Paul’s Cathedral in London in front of 10 year old children, how would that make you feel.

In Cameronstan, Pussy Riot may not be sent to prison for such actions, but in Cameronstan everyone is under the watchful eye of the NSA, fearful of what trumped up charge might await them if they step out of line, or fight for truth and justice. Just ask Julian Assange how his quest for freedom and truth is going behind the protection of the Ecuadoran Embassy, in the 51st state of the U.S.A.

Ms. Foreman, stay away from Russia and stay away from Orthodoxy. Russia doesn’t need more snake oil saleswomen. Keep your reality TV shows that degrade women to yourself. They make UK women look like sexual toys, waiting for a beer drenched man to play with, as they twerk for the attention of a random penis.

Russian women prefer the entertainment of the greats, like Nikolay Gogol, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Leo Tolstoy, and Aleksandr Pushkin.

Contrary to your article, Russian women are not mindless bimbos, easily fooled by Western caricatures of an ‘evil Putin.’ Only Facebook zombies in your neck of the woods believe such nonsense.

Vladimir Putin was democratically voted into office, and is internationally recognised as the President of the Russian Federation. He represents the people of Russia, and has an approval rating above 85%. That’s a mandate Cameron could only dream of in his wettest of dreams.

Russian women have agency, they can judge for themselves what is right and what is wrong. Your post mocks the women of Russia and paints them as fools, who are too stupid to understand the politics at play, and now need the ‘all-wise British feminist’ to save them from the evils of their country, culture, and leadership.

Russian women do not need saving, they are stronger than you could ever imagine. Russian women are intelligent, capable and independent. They know how to survive, they have strong souls, full of passion, and can easily judge for themselves what is right and what is wrong.

And yes, much to your dismay, Russian women are full of beauty, culture, tradition, and femininity. While you are glued to the ‘Tele’ watching the Voice, they are at the Bolshoi or the Hermitage.

You want to change Russian women for the worst, take away their beauty, their brains, and their power, so that you can subjugate them to your rule. It will never happen. Russian women, hell all of Russia, is on to your game. So take your Russophobia, your Orthodoxphobia, your misogyny, and your misandry, and keep it away from MOTHER Russia.

P.S. Vladimir Putin will stop poking fun at Hillary Clinton when she stops calling Putin the new Hitler. Over twenty-five million Russians died in WW2 in order to defeat Hitler, and his Nazi army, so you and Hillary can enjoy the freedoms you take for granted…show some respect and learn some history.

[…] Yes, Russian women have it rough without the vicissitudes of feminism. If only they lived in the more advanced and civilized United States, they could give up their maternity leave benefits. In fact, the United States is so far ahead of the curve in their lack of same that they are the only industrialized nation in the world that does not guarantee paid maternity leave for new mothers.

Lori Loughlin’s daughter was aboard USC official’s yacht in Bahamas when mom was charged

Lori Loughlin’s daughter was on the yacht of USC’s Board of Trustees when her mom was accused in scheme.

Via Fox News


Lori Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli was spending spring break on a University of Southern California official’s yacht when her mother was accused Tuesday of involvement in a college admissions scheme, reports said.

Giannulli, 19, was on Rick Caruso’s luxury yacht Invictus in the Bahamas, a report said. Caruso is chairman of USC’s Board of Trustees.

Giannulli, who currently attends USC, was with Caruso’s daughter Gianna and several other friends, the outlet reported.

“My daughter and a group of students left for spring break prior to the government’s announcement yesterday,” Caruso told TMZ. “Once we became aware of the investigation, the young woman decided it would be in her best interests to return home.”

Loughlin’s daughter has since returned to Los Angeles to face the allegations that could result in her getting expelled from USC.

USC’s Board of Trustees will not decide the status of Giannulli and the other students involved in the case, but rather, the university’s president will make the decisions, according to TMZ.

Business deals in jeopardy?

Giannulli is a YouTube beauty vlogger and social media star, but in the midst of her mother’s charges, she may lose the lucrative brand-sponsorship deals she has landed over the years, Variety reported.

HP, having cut ties with Giannulli, said in a statement, “HP worked with Lori Loughlin and Olivia Jade in 2017 for a one-time product campaign. HP has removed the content from its properties.”

Giannulli also cut brand deals with partners including Amazon, Dolce & Gabbana, Lulus, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Sephora, Smashbox Beauty Cosmetics, Smile Direct Club, Too Faced Cosmetics, Boohoo, and Unilever’s TRESemmé, the report said.

Giannulli’s rep declined to comment, Variety reported. Estée Lauder Companies, which owns Smashbox and Too Faced, also declined to comment, while the other brands or companies the magazine reached out to did not immediately respond to their requests for comment.

$250M Lawsuit Against CNN Imminent; Covington High MAGA Student Suffered “Direct Attacks”

CNN will be the second MSM outlet sued over their reporting of the incident, after Sandmann launched a $250 million lawsuit against the Washington Post in late February. 

Published

Via Zerohedge


CNN is about to be sued for more than $250 million for spreading fake news about 16-year-old Covington High School student Nicholas Sandmann.

Sandmann was viciously attacked by left-leaning news outlets over a deceptively edited video clip from the January March for Life rally at the Lincoln Memorial, in which the MAGA-hat-wearing teenager appeared to be mocking a Native American man beating a drum. Around a day later, a longer version of the video revealed that Sandmann did absolutely nothing wrong – after the media had played judge, jury and executioner of Sandmann’s reputation.

CNN will be the second MSM outlet sued over their reporting of the incident, after Sandmann launched a $250 million lawsuit against the Washington Post in late February.

Speaking with Fox News host Mark Levin in an interview set to air Sunday, Sandmann’s attorney, L. Lin Wood, said “CNN was probably more vicious in its direct attacks on Nicholas than The Washington Post. And CNN goes into millions of individuals’ homes. It’s broadcast into their homes.”

They really went after Nicholas with the idea that he was part of a mob that was attacking the Black Hebrew Israelites, yelling racist slurs at the Black Hebrew Israelites,” continued Wood. “Totally false. Saying things like that Nicholas was part of a group that was threatening the Black Hebrew Israelites, that they thought it was going to be a lynching.”

Why didn’t they stop and just take an hour and look through the internet and find the truth and then report it?” Wood asked. “Maybe do that before you report the lies. They didn’t do it. They were vicious. It was false. CNN will be sued next week, and the dollar figure in the CNN case may be higher than it was [against] The Washington Post.”

Rand Paul refuses to support emergency declaration, deepening problem

Rand Paul gives a principled reason for his refusal, and he cannot be faulted for that, but it leaves the borders open and unsafe.

Seraphim Hanisch

Published

on

Senator Rand Paul indicated he will vote to terminate President Trump’s National Emergency Declaration on Sunday. This continues a story that seems to want no resolution.

Weeks ago, the seed to this news piece started this way:

One 35-day partial government shutdown and almost three weeks later, the debate over a statistically tiny amount of money in the US budget for the building of a border wall drags on with no solution. On February 15th, if there is no agreement that is to President Trump’s satisfaction, the government will once again descend into a partial shutdown.

And on February 15th, the President signed a continuing resolution to keep the government open through the rest of the fiscal year. This CR gave sharply limited authority of funds with regards to the border wall. This prompted the President to take it a step farther and declare a National Emergency.

This is because very few people in the US government actually desire a solution to close and secure the American-Mexican border. In fact, what we see is a government that is largely aligned against the will of its citizens.

President Trump has made repeated statements and speeches in which he outlines a fair array of facts concerning the problems experienced in the US by illegal border crossings of both people and controlled substances.

However, the issue of border security remains something that Congress only supports with words. We saw this in action both last week and the week before with the Democrat led House of Representatives voting 245-182 to terminate the National Emergency declaration. While this was to be expected in the House, on March 3rd, libertarian Senator Rand Paul, a known strong supporter of President Trump, nonetheless penned an Op-Ed piece on Fox News in which he said he planned to also vote against the National Emergency in the Republican-led Senate (emphasis added):

In September of 2014,  I had these words to say: “The president acts like he’s a king. He ignores the Constitution.  He arrogantly says, ‘If Congress will not act, then I must.’

Donald J. Trump agreed with me when he said in November 2014 that President Barack Obama couldn’t make a deal on immigration so “now he has to use executive action, and this is a very, very dangerous thing that should be overridden easily by the Supreme Court.”

I support President Trump. I supported his fight to get funding for the wall from Republicans and Democrats alike, and I share his view that we need more and better border security.

However, I cannot support the use of emergency powers to get more funding, so I will be voting to disapprove of his declaration when it comes before the Senate.

Every single Republican I know decried President Obama’s use of executive power to legislate. We were right then. But the only way to be an honest officeholder is to stand up for the same principles no matter who is in power…

There are really two questions involved in the decision about emergency funding:

  • First, does statutory law allow for the president’s emergency orders,
  • and, second, does the Constitution permit these emergency orders?

As far as the statute goes, the answer is maybe — although no president has previously used emergency powers to spend money denied by Congress, and it was clearly not intended to do that.

But there is a much larger question: the question of whether or not this power and therefore this action are constitutional. With regard to the Constitution, the Supreme Court made it very clear in Youngstown Steel in 1952, in a case that is being closely reexamined in the discussion of executive power.  In Youngstown, the Court ruled that there are three kinds of executive order: orders that carry out an expressly voiced congressional position, orders where Congress’ will is unclear, and, finally, orders clearly opposed to the will of Congress.

To my mind, like it or not, we had this conversation.  In fact, the government was shut down in a public battle over how much money would be spent on the wall and border security.  It ended with a deal that Congress passed and the president signed into law, thus determining the amount.

Congress clearly expressed its will not to spend more than $1.3 billion and to restrict how much of that money could go to barriers.  Therefore, President Trump’s emergency order is clearly in opposition to the will of Congress.

Moreover, the broad principle of separation of powers in the Constitution delegates the power of the purse to Congress.  This turns that principle on its head.

Some are attempting to say that there isn’t a good analogy between President Obama’s orders or the Youngstown case. I disagree. Not only are the issues similar, but I think Youngstown Steel implications are even more profound in the case of emergency appropriations. We spent the last two months debating how much money should be spent on a wall, and Congress came to a clear conclusion: $1.3 billion. Without question, the president’s order for more wall money contradicts the will of Congress and will, in all likelihood, be struck down by the Supreme Court.

In fact, I think the president’s own picks to the Supreme Court may rebuke him on this.

Regardless, I must vote how my principles dictate. My oath is to the Constitution, not to any man or political party. I stand with the president often, and I do so with a loud voice. Today, I think he’s wrong, not on policy, but in seeking to expand the powers of the presidency beyond their constitutional limits. I understand his frustration. Dealing with Congress can be pretty difficult sometimes. But Congress appropriates money, and his only constitutional recourse, if he does not like the amount they appropriate, is to veto the bill.

This statement by Rand Paul is extremely – and painfully – fair. It marks not the actions of a liberal but of someone who is trying to do things truly “by the book.” He cannot be faulted for this.

But his “Nay” is very poorly placed because it comes in the context of a Congress that is full of people far less committed to the vision of America and its sovereignty than he or the President are. One of the reasons stated for lax border security is that cutting off illegal immigration also cuts off very cheap labor for several industries. Some of those industry leaders donate lavishly to political campaigns, ergo, corruption.

Rand Paul, in trying to fight for what is right by the letter of the law, may be correct, but in the short term it appears to exacerbate the problem of the porous US-Mexico border.

President Trump is trying to do the right thing in the company of a Congress who does not want this, for various reasons. Some of it is because some Congressmen and women are petty, Nancy Pelosi and Charles Schumer being the crabby National Grandparents in this aspect. But add to the “resist Trump because he is Trump” lobby those people who gain from illegal immigration in the short term, and those like the new socialist crop of Congressional members who are ready to change the very nature of the United States into something like their cannabis-induced dream of Sweden (which didn’t even work in Sweden!) and we see that border security is every bit the uphill climb that President Trump has shown it to be.

The government shutdown did one very good thing: It got the American focus on the border and some opinions on the matter moved – at least among the American people.

But since when did our representatives and senators really represent us, the American people?

It has been a long, long time.
