Comrade Dumbo should be careful when eating his Big Macs, Daddy Vladdy may decide that he has outlived his usefulness. Maybe the Dotard should start using Dumbo Jr as a food taster.

It's just for show. Comrade Donniy won't actually impose any rules that would really hurt Pootie Poot, no matter what Congress passes.

Is he going to start burning assets?

You know what would be really devastating, Vladimir?  If you released the pee tape.   Boy howdy, would that wreak havoc on our whole country.  Truly disastrous, that would be, Vlad.  Cataclysmic.

More like the assett is getting out of control.

"Release the pee-pee tape!"

Europe may have problems pushing further sanctions on Russia, since they need gas from them. (Although Russia needs to sell, just as much as Europe needs to buy). Of course, if we weren't farking around with Iran, the EU would have another source of oil. Also, if we weren't pissing off all our allies, we could bring in more countries to apply stronger sanctions on Russia. Maybe the EU is stuck buying that oil. But we used to have allies in Latin America and Asia that may had joined us in putting pressure on Russia over Ukraine and use of chemical weapons. But they're not about to lose business opportunities in Russia while also fighting a trade war with the U.S.

The other Oligarchs and mob bosses there also know where their toast is buttered. They'll put him down to keep their gravy train rolling - he's not the only murderer there.

Those aren't leopards. Those are just State Department officials, doing their jobs, apparently totally unaware of the fact that they're being stalked by leopards.

So that letter Trump had Rand Paul hand deliver to Putin recently probably was an apology for needing to appear tough on Russia ahead of the midterm elections. I would imagine that the response was a photo of some pee soaked teenage girls.

Putin discovers a fatal flaw in using Trump as an intelligence asset.

2018-08-10 09:45:52 AM  
I'm no expert, but it seems to me after reading about the questionable Russian financial activities, we should be locking them down on the financial front.  Forget about trying block export of their gas to Europe.  Make certain that Russian money is blocked every where in the world.  Make it so the wealthy Russians can't spend a ruble anywhere but inside their own country.  When wealthy Russians can only buy what normal Russians can, they will notice.
 
2018-08-10 09:48:09 AM  
Something tells me that Trump ran all this by Putin ahead of time, saying "we've gotta make it at least LOOK like we're tough on you guys, otherwise the Jig is up!"  So Putin gave him the go-ahead for a few sanctions that won't really hurt his bottom line, and then faux outrage would commence.

Putin actually loves sanctions.  They give him an enemy - an outsider - to blame their woes on.  But he's got to also keep up appearances.  His finances are fine.  So if the people to a little hungry and he can play the tough defender it plays right into his hands.

Putin is not a binary, black/white kind of guy.  He's got contingencies for his contingencies.  He may not win 100%, but he makes sure he gets something out of every plot.

Trump is a bright orange living example of that.
 
2018-08-10 09:49:28 AM  
At some point, the Pee-Pee tapes will be release by someone in Russia just fed up being 'whip-sawed' by the passive-aggressive US policies.

Rumour has it that Hannity is in negotiations to get 1st crack at the tapes. Not to show on his program, but because it apparently titillates him.
 
2018-08-10 09:49:30 AM  
Uh huh. Let's see them actually be imposed and enforced before we believe anything out of this administration. Then let's see how long they last, and what they actually apply to - the devil is always in the details. And let's see if Trump doesn't step in at some point.

And the other thing about this is... considering the totality of Trump's deference to Russia in all things......... so what? A little plausible deniability is all I'd see here. Farking Rand Paul just hand delivered a secret, personal letter from Trump. We have every reason to believe that letter said, "Sorry Vlad, bear with me for a bit here, I'm getting a lot of hear back home and McConnel says I have to let these sanctions go through for a little bit before the midterms to try and cool off some of the heat. We'll cancel them after the election. Love, Your Lil' Pudddin' Cup XOXO"

Trump was just part of that plan.

They had to bury Reagan 15-feet deep and seal the hole with cement to keep Hannity from trying to grave rob the Lil' Gipper.
 
2018-08-10 09:52:46 AM  
Before I believe any of this, I want to see the sanctions actually occur, rather than some announcement followed by foot dragging and exceptions and then sanctions not really occurring.  Everything out of this administrations a lie until there is physical, valid documented proof that it is otherwise.

Yeah. I bet he had Paul tell Putin he'd have more flexibility after the election.
 
2018-08-10 09:55:43 AM  
Russian commies should have stuck with trying to influence the American left, like they did for most of the last century.
It was mostly ineffective, but there was no chance of the blow-back Putin's getting now because he backed the wack-a-doodle right.
 
2018-08-10 09:58:18 AM  
Putin lives in a house of cards, much like Trump.  We economically crushed the USSR once and we can do it again.  Sanction the hell out of them.  Send fleets of tankers full of subsidized of LNG and oil to Western Europe until Gasprom and Rosneft collapse.  Pay for it out of the defense budget.  Hell, you wasted $119 million in missiles to strike Syria after you telegraphed your intent to Putin. It would be money well spent and not cost a single American life.

This is an excellent plan, except for the fact that freezing out Russian money cuts into Fat Donny's grift.

Can't have that, America.

...and has vowed to "work on retaliatory measures."

Instead of recalling the ambassador, maybe Vlad will recall his president

Obama totally should have promised him things instead.  Perhaps in exchange for getting Putin's help to ensure his election.
 
2018-08-10 10:08:54 AM  
All of this was worked out in detail during the private discussions.  Putin knows that Trump needs to look tough on Russia right now and this hurts him exactly as much as a well choreographed WWE move.
 
2018-08-10 10:09:46 AM  
I wish we had a president who would simply laugh in Putin's evil little face anytime he pulls his phony "Russia did not have and does not have anything to do with the use of chemical weapons" routine.

Or maybe just slow, sarcastic clapping at the podium after Putin does his little gasp of surprise that *anyone* would think Russia would stoop to such behavior.
 
2018-08-10 10:10:03 AM  
Putin has to learn to kill the lawful way.
 
2018-08-10 10:13:09 AM  
So they guy on the receiving end of sanctions finds them unacceptable.  Well, duh, that's the way sanctions work.  They wouldn't be sanctions if Putin was groovy with the whole idea.

Trump will fark it up anyway.
