Vladimir Putin brags that America’s global influence “is almost done.”

The return on Putin’s investment in Donald Trump has paid off bigly. 

Courtesy of Share Blue:

In his annual public address before the nation, Russian President Vladimir Putin proclaimed that America’s global influence has come to end — a development he attributed in large part to Trump’s presidency.

Speaking about the position of the U.S. on the global stage, Putin celebrated the waning influence of what he described as America’s “monopoly” on power, saying it would give Russia the ability to exert more influence in the world.

“Empires often think they can make some little mistakes. Because they’re so powerful,” Putin said, according to the Financial Times. ”But when the number of these mistakes keeps growing, it reaches a level they cannot sustain.”

He admonished the U.S. for having a “sense of impunity,” saying, “This is the result of the monopoly from a unipolar world.”

“Luckily this monopoly is disappearing,” he added. “It’s almost done.”

And Russia’s time has come, he said, claiming that America’s downfall meant that Russia had an opportunity to establish itself as a major player on the global stage.

As the Financial Times described, “Putin continually returned to the idea that US hegemony was the cause of many global ills — but that its twilight offered opportunities for Russia and its friends.”

Putin also noted that since Trump took office, punitive actions in response to Russian aggression in Ukraine and Syria had lessened in severity and were no longer having the impact they once did.

He hit back at media reports describing his relationship with Trump as poor, noting that Trump listens to what he says, and that he wants a better relationship with Russia.

Putin took a huge risk when it interfered in America’s 2016 election.

If Hillary had won he would have been punished for his impunity and ostracized by virtually every nation on the planet. 

But his puppet won, and now it is Christmas time in Russia, and he can celebrate while he dances on the grave of the world’s last superpower. 

So I guess the only question remaining is what are we going to do about it?

    ‘”When asked by reporters about Russia meddling, Trump showed ‘no concern’ and blamed former president Barack Obama.
    “Obama didn’t spend a coin to stop it,”’

    What are we going to do about it? Yes, we will vote BLUE in November.
    But the damage has been done and cannot be undone overnight. Some of it will take a generation or more to remedy. Like the trust that we have lost with one single stroke, in less than two years.
    Who in their right mind would want to trust the US, after they have seen that ONE MADMAN can undo what numerous Presidents before him have worked their combined a$$es of to accomplish? We are SOL , IMHO. Putin won.
    We might be able to lessen some of the damage he has done domestically, but even THAT will take time, likely several years.
    Meanwhile, people will die, because he and his complicit Congress have taken away our health insurance, and they are undoing all the protections we have so dearly fought for.
    Social Sec: buh-bye!
    Environmental protections like clean air and clean water? Buh-bye!
    They even are trying to take away radiation protec now!
    Education? Who needs any edjumacashion?! We want robots to do the work, because they will do what we tell them to do and will not demand a living wage or time off. People can die – WHO CARES! If they are hungry, they can pull themselves up by their bootstraps and get a street sweeper job. Or go to some soup kitchens.

      If you think that Hillary is going to run again you are even dumber than your typing indicates.

        Well, I’m the same dumb person that told you Trump was going to beat Hillary months in advance, much to your ridicule. So dumb I am.

        I’ll stay with my dumb brain any day over your wishful or wistful thinking.

    “Members of the conspiracy used social media and other internet platforms to inflame passions on a wide variety of topics,” the document states. “Members of the conspiracy took advantage of specific events in the United States to anchor their themes, including the shooting of church members in Charleston, South Carolina.”

    Adding, “Members of the conspiracy also sought to target the timing of their post to attract the possible widest viewership.”

    ““Although the documents do not directly link the $3.3 million to the meeting, they show that officials at three separate banks raised red flags about the funds,” the report noted. “Many of the transfers seemed to have no legitimate purpose, bankers noted. Kaveladze quickly moved money to other accounts he controlled, and appeared to use some of it to make payments on Agalarov’s behalf — including more than $700,000 to pay off American Express charges.”

    RBC noted in its report that within 10 days of BuzzFeed’s September report on the transactions between Agalarov and Kaveladze, the oligarch received notification from Union Bank about the closure of all his corporate accounts.” “Crocus has reportedly tried to open three new accounts — to no avail.

    “Our company is under real threat of ceasing its activities in the USA,” Kaveladze told RBC before blaming the closures on the “criminal actions” of Natalie May Edwards, a senior Treasury employee arrested for leaking documents related to the Mueller probe.”

    Like trump putin is delusional. The citizens of Russia want putin out. They are demanding he resign. They are tired of being suppressed and controlled. The Russian youth will change Russia and bring peace to a communist country ruled by thugs.

      Russia has not been a communist country for many many years. Where are you people getting your education from these days?

      • Beaglemom October 20, 2018 at 4:13 am

        Tell that to the people Putin’s regime has imprisoned, beaten up or disappeared. Putin is a product of the Communist KGB. His goal is to bring back what to him were the “glory days.” Not communism but the brutality that went with it. He’s simply substituted the billionaire oligarch class for the old Communist Party leadership.

        Same place America got the illusion of being ‘the fabric of our lives’ propaganda. Works well hu?

        Russia is not a communist country. Just a matter of keeping facts straight. Kinda look stupid when someone says Russia is still communist.

        Meanwhile, many so called ‘Democrat Socialists’ such as young genius Ms. Cortez (‘like, like, for sure, yeah, like, like, for sure’ brilliant performance on Kimmel Ms. Cortez, like totally brilliant, for sure), with the support of their minions, are stirring up baby communism right here with crazed far left support.

        Sorry, you guys have lost it. Kamala Harris wants the Government to give $500 a month away to anyone making less than 50g’s a year! Cuckoo Cuckoo!

    The 1987 pact bans all land-based missile with ranges of 310 to 3,420 miles and includes missiles carrying both nuclear and conventional warheads. The original ban between Moscow and Washington resulted in 2,692 missiles being destroyed.

    U.S. Ambassador to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison earlier this month warned that the U.S. could be forced to “take out” missiles Russia is developing that violate the INF.

    “It is time now for Russia to come to the table and stop the violations,” Hutchison told reporters in Brussels.

    Putin’s Witnesses
    Vitaly Mansky has now turned against the Russian president, making an extraordinary documentary—using footage shot from the inside—that explores Putin’s uncompromising thirst for power and his quest to restore what he sees as Soviet-era glory to the country. now “has no choice” but to cling to power forever.
    Mansky said he tries to forget the consequences that his actions may one day bring down upon him.
    A series of dissidents and exiles have recently been targeted in Britain by Putin’s regime “Witnesses become accomplices.”
    “the film was a form of apology for his role in helping to spread Putin’s propaganda. “I would not call it an apology exactly, but the realization of your own guilt,” he said. “This realization is not enough. I would like the audience of the film, especially people in Russia, to contemplate—to think about all the mistakes that have been made in the past so that in future we won’t make so many of them.”
    ““Not only would he not like to follow in the footsteps of Ceaușescu and Milosevic, he wouldn’t even want to follow the fate of Pinochet who could have faced the courts in his own country.”
    “The film as a whole gives us a good idea what Putin really thinks, especially the future of the country and the role of the state in shaping that future.”

    ““There is a famous poet, Alexander Pushkin—a Russian Shakespeare—he wrote this play Boris Godunov, which deals with an illegal power takeover and the establishment of the Romanov dynasty,”
    “The final line in the play when Boris takes power illegally is: The people were silent.”
    “It’s very sad to see that nearly 500 years since that happened not much has changed in Russia.”
