Kremlin “Not Surprised” at Trump’s Silence on Russia in First Speech to Congress



On Wednesday, Kremlin spokesman D S Peskov told reporters that the Kremlin isn’t surprised that US President Donald Trump’s first speech to a joint session of the US Congress made no mention of Russia:

No, we aren’t surprised. He’s the President of the USA. Naturally, he’s engaged in US affairs, just as President Putin engages in Russian affairs. It’s absolutely normal.

On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump delivered his first address before Congress, speaking on the issues of economic policy, health care, infrastructure, and military spending as well as the fight against terrorism.

DNR Nationalised 40 Ukrainian-Owned Enterprises

On Wednesday, Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) Head of State A V Zakharchenko told reporters that the DNR nationalised nearly 40 Ukrainian-jurisdiction Donbass enterprises because of the transport blockade in the region:

This affects about 40 enterprises… we introduced external administration at almost all of them, with few exceptions.

In late January, a group of Ukrainian extremists, including Ukrainian lawmakers, blocked railroads linking the patriot-controlled areas in the Donbass with the areas controlled by Kiev. They claimed that any trade with the DNR and LNR was illegal and that the trade between the Peoples Republics and the junta-controlled Ukraine was smuggling. The blockade led to a disruption in anthracite coal supplies to the Ukraine, which forced the Ukrainian authorities to introduce emergency measures in the energy sector to save resources.

1 March 2017. How to Make MEANINGFUL Budget Cuts



The Clintons are rich… they don’t need Uncle Sugar’s “pittance”. Trump is rich… or, at least, he claims that he is. Let’s take him at his word! He doesn’t need Uncle Sugar’s pittance either. Since Trump is so rich, we can also make him pay for his family’s gallivanting and he can pay for his own golf trips. the same goes for the fatcats sitting in Congress. Most of ’em are of the Affluent Effluent (if they’re not, they soon steal enough to be such). Fair is fair. We can’t have any lazy sods sucking on the public teat, can we? Simply apply their own standards to these creepo supremos and watch ’em squirm… after all, they did fail the “needs test”, didn’t they? The last president who needed Uncle Sugar’s pension was General Eisenhower… Ike spent his life in public service and didn’t have a pile. The rest of ’em? Not a one is up against it. Cut ’em off and save the taxpayer some money.

Now, that’s MEANINGFUL budget cutting…
