Putin visits his former KGB boss on his 90th birthday
Very cool of Putin to visit his old boss. I don't care what anyone says, the KGB was no worse than our FBI. In fact, they might not have been nearly as bad.

EXCLUSIVE: What Did NBC's Megyn Kelly Cut Out From The Interview with Putin?
Putin is absolutely impressive in this excerpt from the interview with Megyn Kelly. No softball questions in this interview, but Putin hits a home run every damn time!

Who is Alexei Navalny?
The US propaganda machine would have you believe one thing, but the truth is quite different. First of all, Alexei Navalny really isn't that big of a deal in Russia. Throughout the entire country only 20k people took part in the "Anti-Corruption Demonstrations" (held a few days ago) and most were very young and easily manipulated individuals. Secondly, although US media claims that he will run for president in Russia, he is ineligible due to convictions for serious crimes. The irony is that he was convicted on corruption charges and yet he organizes anti-corruption rallies. Also of interest is his modus operandi. Typically he will obtain a permit for a rally which specifies a location and then at the last minute he will announce to participants that the location has changed. This causes a major disruption and he gets cited for holding an illegal rally. In other words, he goes out of his way to break the agreement in the rally permit in order to provoke and get media attention. In conclusion, it's hard not to say that Navalny is a worthless piece of crap.

I Don't Forget Cheaters! - Putin About Attempts to Cheat Him
The contrast between the real Putin and the Putin portrayed by the mainstream media is quite stark.

Putin on Navalny: I am not paying attention to people who are only interested in publicity
The media here in the USA likes to pretend that Navalny is a legitimate political figure, when the reality is that he is actually nothing more than a conman.

Putin: Collapse of The Soviet Union Had Greatest Impact On Me
It sounds like Putin learned a lot about how mismanagement of resources can result in the collapse of a superpower.

Putin Slams Europeans for Upholding Child Rape by a Migrant: Europe has no Future!
You have kids being put in prison for sexting pics of THEMSELVES here in the USA, but over in Europe if migrants commit physically violent rape, they get off without any penalty. Putin seems to be one of the few leaders on the planet with enough spine to speak out against such insanity!

I read all the time of similar things happening over here in the US. At least he has enough balls to slam Europe for it.

UN: Lavrov wishes Swiss counterpart whatever he 'wishes for himself' during UNGA meeting
It's not what we wish for others that matters, but what others wish for themselves. Great answer!
