Putin Is At It Again

| January 19, 2021

If you didn’t read about it in the local newspaper, here it is: Putin’s biggest critic, Alexei Navalny, returned to Moscow with his wife after spending time in a hospital in Germany, recovering from being poisoned. He was arrested as he disembarked from the airplane in Moscow, and will be sitting in a jail cell for a while.

While Vlad won’t admit to it, the poison pill Novochok came from his side of the fence, but Navalny was fortunate enough to get immediate care and get his health back (most of it, anyway).    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-54002880

A Novichok nerve agent was used to poison former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the UK in 2018. There have been other poisonings and shootings prior to these two incidents, but this is so Medici Medieval, it’s almost theatrical.  Really, if you want to get rid of your opposition, aren’t there boggy places and giant holes in Siberia where things can be disposed of?

The link below is the news video produced when Navalny and his wife got off the plane.

    Even though he had a massive target on his back, isn’t he now wearing hunters orange for all the world to see? I’d think he’s kinda protected, but, then again, we have to remember who we’re dealing with. Not unlike Jeffery Epstein, maybe Hillary Clinton will pay him a health and welfare visit.

      Ummm…. think it might happen elsewhere? Heh…

      After all, when you have people who think they own The World (but don’t), they also don’t like criticism because “HATEHATEHATE!!”

    In America you just get invited to a midnight picnic at Fort Marcy Park off of the George Washington Parkway.

  3. OWB says:

    Is he volunteering for martyrdom? Most of us would likely disappear somewhere in the world very far from mother Russia, wouldn’t we?

    This guy has cohones. I just finished reading about him on Bellingcat (an investigative journalism site that uses crowdsourced information to determine those responsible in a story). They did a great piece on the Ukrainian airline shoot down last year, but have slowly gone decidedly left wing over time.

    So, this guy Alexei actually called one of the FSB operatives who was suspected of poisoning him and, posing as a senior FSB agent, got the guy to admit everything that they did and provide names and details of how the poisoning went down. Fantastic story for anyone interested, it’s almost like a Tom Clancy novel: https://www.bellingcat.com/resources/2020/12/14/navalny-fsb-methodology/

    Of course, Vlad says it’s all a lie, but to expose the FSB and Moscow like that and then return to Russia is either very brave or super idiotic. My money says that he will ‘pull an Epstein’ while detained.

    I foresee him having a bout of depression and falling out of a window very soon.

    • The Stranger says:

      Yeah, he might be so depressed that he’ll jump out of that window twice.

      • Mason says:

        Like Rasputin. Poisoned cookies, poisoned wine, shoot him in the chest, leave him for dead. Assassins come back and Rasputin leaps up and attacks them. They shoot him some more, roll him up in a rug, and chuck him into a freezing river.

  6. Only Army Mom says:

    Poisoning may be medieval but it is also sends a pretty clear message to others, “yeah, we did it, we’ll deny it publicly and you won’t be able to prove it”.

    Yep…No doubt about it. Trump did it! Everybody knows what good Buddies that Pootin’ and The Donald are. That whole rushin’ collusion thing from awhile back. What used to be called Air Force One will hang a left upon takeoff from Sodom on the Potomac come Wednesday and hang a left heading toward the Eastern Front. Pootin has a new bearskin rug for Melania to lay about on in front of the Dacha Fireplace.

    Dumbass! Do believe I’d of gone anywhere but back to Mother Russia.

    Gotta give a shout out to the wife for sticking by him.
    That takes fur.
