Saudi King Bows to New Middle East Tsar Putin And Brings Billions For Joint Projects With Russia
Meanwhile as we deal with all sorts of stupid distractions thanks to the clowns who run this country, Russia is busy stealing our allies. I didn't see anything about this potentially pivotal event in mainstream news anywhere.

Check Out NEW 4+ Generation Su-30SM Fighter IN ACTION
The Russian economy is growing despite efforts by the USA to undermine it. Support for Putin remains incredibly high despite corporate media propaganda. Their military is advancing technologically at an incredibly fast rate and they're kicking ass in Syria. Meanwhile the dipshits in charge here are wasting time on completely pointless sideshows.

THANKS FOR SANCTIONS: A Record Wheat Crop in Russia Supresses American Farmers Input
Ultimately the sanctions just make Russia stronger since they force Russia to develop its economy and to become more self-sufficient while also finding new trade partners.

Russian Jet vs. US Plane: 'Instead of Whining, US Should Stop Provoking Russia'
Both sides do this sort of thing, but mostly we only hear about supposed Russian violations. Our media paints an unrealistic picture where we're the good guys and they're the bad guys. Reality doesn't work that way.
The Russian Defense Ministry has noted a major uptick in US and NATO flights near Russian territory in recent months. In mid-November, the Ministry reported that jets were scrambled three times in one week to chase away foreign recon planes. In the seven day period, twelve spy planes were caught approaching Russian airspace, including six on the western borders, three in the Russian Arctic, one on the southwestern flank and two from the east.

a2z: Both sides are more or less equally guilty and that's why it's important to look at things from several perspectives. Moreover, that's why I'm very concerned about recent moves by Google and others to make it more difficult to find news from Russia. This makes me very suspicious of the intentions of our corporately owned government and the corporately owned news media.
