Putin knows Trump is even less likely to have the money to repay the loans if he doesn't win re-election. I'm not terribly surprised he's pulling out all the stops trying to protect his investment.

Lol, yes, Putin is all about the Communism. Just because he controls the means of production doesn't mean anyone else has a share in it.

he doesn't care about a paltry half billion - that was one heck of an investment that has paid off tenfold. He's just afraid of not getting the job finished and destroying American power for a generation at least.

So, Pootie is admitting that Russia's "free elections" aren't?

That's fair. Putin could also be angling for the start of a civil war that could destroy America from within too.

Putin made more off the Rosneft deal shortly after Trump was elected than he could ever get in repayment from the Dotard.

"The Democratic Party is traditionally closer to the so-called liberal values, closer to social democratic ideas," Putin said. "And it was from the social democratic environment that the Communist Party evolved."

The Menseiviks were a moderate non-Leninist wing of the Russian Social Democratic Workers' Party, opposed to the Bolsheviks and defeated by them after the overthrow of the tsar in 1917. They lost to the Bolsheviks in November 1917 elections, but had been split from the other party since before the Revolution of 1905. They were not communist. But he knows this.
"Candidate Biden has said openly that he was ready to extend the New START or to sign a new strategic offensive reductions treaty," Putin said, referring to the landmark nuclear arms control accord that is due to lapse next year. "This is already a very significant element of our potential future cooperation." The Trump administration has thus far refused offers to extend the deal, saying it wants China included in any new nuclear arms deals.This is good news. Less nukes is good for everyone.

Ah, "Something, something is Farked" a time honored diversion tactic.

Putin is an opportunist but he has Dugin with an overall game plan (see "Content").

Sorry Putin,
I share values with the never Trump Republicans who want to kick your ugly bumpy butt.
 
2020-10-09 7:45:55 PM  
Actually Putin,
Here, let's compromise, America can "socialize" Javelin missiles to President Zelensky and you can continue to be afraid of rainbow ice cream while I make fun of you and he drives out your gopniks.

Da, is good deal!

I think that's his ideal endgame.

Joe can just point out he won't tolerateRussia's bounty shiat, won't abandon bases in Syria so the Russians can have them, etc.

"I'm the evil Russian guy who everyone thinks helped Trump win the election but I'm really siding with Biden and the democrats so, you know..."

Putin says "communism" when he should be saying "socialism" but actually means "mobster oligarchy".

And frankly, it's not that much to own.  Their GDP in 2019 was $1.4 trillion dollars.

He is speaking to these idiots. Or rather, their descendants, both literal and figurative.

Putin needs the Gaddafi treatment.

Biden needs to put Clinton in charge of dealing with Russia. Cripple their biatchass oligarchy for a decade. Let them riot in the streets.

Russia isn't communist
It's an Ogliarchy

Communism is just a red herring
(cue the Clue scene)

It's capitalist, only difference is the corporations don't have full control, the ogliarchs do.
Like gangsters, taking their cut.

There's not many true Communist countries anymore
Like China is a one-party gang of capitalist thieves.

Actually, there's no full capitalist nation either.
It's like Red State/Blue State in truth, it's just shades of purple all over the world.
Socialist hybrids  (part corporation/part government)
Yes, even the US. 🙄
 
2020-10-09 11:18:44 PM  
Is Russia even communist anymore?  Didn't they ditch that with the USSR?  I know Pootie-Poot is doing his best to get the old gang back together, but they seem pretty comfortable with their capitalist oligarchy they have going at the moment.

Does Russia even claim to be communist?  I know China still claims they are communist, but they're the most capitalist communists ever.  In fact, I was thinking about this the other day and concluded the US and China are two sides of the same capitalist coin.  The only difference is in China, the government controls the corporations while in the US, the corporations control the government.

Trump has cited a working relationship with Russia as one the reasons to vote for him so I'm sure Republicans will see this as a good thing for Biden.

Just look at income and wealth disparity in these so-called "communist" countries.

After Trump is no longer President, he will still have access to classified info unless he is stripped of his clearance.  So, Trump can keep giving away state secret to pay off his debt until someone in power decides to do something and stop it (and risk the appearance of retaliating against a political opponent).

The Forbes Billionaires list says that it doesn't even try to include heads of state because their wealth is so difficult to track. I've seen estimates putting Putin at at least two or three Bezoses.

Even if he is cut off, he still knows what he knows from when he was president. That would still help.
