Putin Mocks Democrats, Exchanges Holiday Greetings and Hopes for Successful Negotiations in 2017 with President-elect Trump

It's that time of year, in which Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin holds a marathon hours-long press conference taking questions from both prominent global media outlets and obscure newspapers in the Urals. During the press conference, Putin took a parting shot at Hillary Clinton and the Democrats who accused him of personally ordering the hacking of the U.S. election through the release of emails from the DNC and John Podesta's easily phished by some guy in Kiev Gmail account.

In a sign that perhaps Putin's speechwriters listen to RogueMoney guest and LaRouchePAC board member Harley Schlanger, the Russian President said "losers always look for someone to blame, but they should first of all look at themselves." Putin sarcastically asked whether Russian hackers could be blamed for the Dems losing seats in the U.S. Senate, and stated that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt would be embarrassed by today's Democratic Party (which incidentally, after Hillary's humiliating defeat is at its weakest in terms of legislatures and governorships since before FDR took office in 1932). Putin also described the Dems use of 'administrative resources' (read: politicizing the CIA to push 'the Rooskies aided Trump' talking points from anonymous Clintonistas at Langley) as 'absolutely shameless'.

Certainly, the threats issued by the U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby declaring Wednesday that Russians will suffer more of their servicemen coming home in 'body bags' and terrorist attacks on their cities and interests (read: Russian embassies and oil workers in Iraq or elsewhere in the Mideast) have been splashed all over Russian television. So too have top Russian commanders and diplomats' response that they take threats to the lives of their citizens very seriously and that the State Department's language is hysterical and completely inappropriate to those who call themselves diplomats. Meanwhile, The New York Times the old Grey Whore 'paper of record' for the country which has backed every U.S. war since Desert Storm if not Vietnam is now demanding in lockstep with the Manhattan-based Council on Foreign Relations what CJCS Marine Gen.
