You can pick a bone of contention with Ruslan Ostashko's evident schadenfreude over the misfortune of the Clinton camp and the Democrats' increasingly hysterical allegations that Russian spies, hackers and agents of influence are everywhere in America from the Trump campaign to the FBI. What you cannot argue with presented below (in English text and the original Russian language video), is Mr. Ostashko's Lake Baikal-cold logic.
One is reminded in fact of the Jewish joke about two elderly Jews meeting in a park where the other is reading a Der Sturmer wannabe paper, and one saying to the other, "Why do you read that anti-Semitic rag newspaper?" and the other says, "Well it cheers me up. According to this we Jews run the media, Hollywood, the banks and the American government". Change the scenery to a park in Moscow and two elderly Russian Gentiles, and the paper to The Washington Post or Foreign Policy shrieking that Russia has hacked the American elections, and you get the same idea. The now-geriatric KGB guys who worked for comrade Andropov in back when President Reagan labelled them the sword and shield of the Evil Empire probably can't contain their smiles behind the wheels of their pensioners Ladas or walkers these days. As my Swiss/White Russian friend The Saker said in a late October interview with The Solari Report's Catherine Austin Fitts, Russians are bemused by the in the tank for Hillary American mainstream media outlets insisting that they're so powerful and their spies so clever as to insert the ultimate The Americans 'illegal'/Siberian candidate, Дональд Иван Трамп, into the American body politic.
The Washington (Langley) (Com)Post's Russophrenics want to have it both ways. They argue that Russia is a basket case country that somehow through mastery of the dark arts is playing a if not THE decisive role in America's elections. Yet if it were true, wouldn't that make the USA a banana republic, to paraphrase Putin, whose elections are so easily swayed or manipulated by what President Obama once dismissed as a second rate regional power like Russia? Oh and the WaPost itself isn't all that consistent from day to day, one could get a headache from contradictory headlines like these:
No wonder Russophrenics like Robert Caruso and Casey Michel are so butthurt over being called out on this site as conspira-troll hacks for Soros and Hillary (and in Caruso's case, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)'s pro-Syria jihad element in Washington). It's becoming obvious they've got nothing to look forward to after November 8 except continued appeals to the 'Demintern'/Soros money machine for employment and relevance. - JWS
