Kremlin sez Putin Congratulated Zeman on Re-Election

Zeman won because many Czechs, like these demonstrators, are anti-American to the bone. CNN doesn’t mention that, do they?

________________________

On Saturday, official Kremlin sources said that President V V Putin congratulated Miloš  Zeman on being re-elected as President of the Czech Republic:

In his congratulatory message, the head of Russian state underlined that the results of the latest election showed Zeman’s high authority as an experienced and responsible politician who put the Czech people’s interests and aspirations into life. President Putin pointed up that Russia highly praises Zeman’s principled stance in favour of friendly Russian-Czech relations and mutually beneficial cooperation in various fields. President Putin confirmed our readiness to continue constructive joint work on bilateral and global agenda and wished Zeman health, well-being, and new success in his state duties.

Earlier on Saturday, Zeman won re-election as President of the Czech Republic in a run-off. He took 51.36 percent of the vote; his opponent, Jiří Drahoš, the former head of the Czech Academy of Sciences, had 48.63 percent of the vote. Voter turnout was 66.6 percent.

The USA wanted Zeman out. They failed. It looks like the “sole superpower” isn’t what it claims itself to be…

An aggressor is someone who attacks a particular country before the USA does. 

The lifting of economic sanctions against Cuba was a rare example of the US government critically assessing its actions. The USA lacks the capacity for critical self-examination. Rather, the truth is that they measure a politician’s intelligence by how long it takes for them to cover up their mistakes. If you react to a situation fifty years later, you may share the fate of brontosauruses that disappeared before they were able to correct their mistakes. To attempt to export your political system to countries with different cultures and traditions only leads to the fact that if your efforts prove unsuccessful, those countries become your enemies. If your attempts prove “successful”, all that you can do is to pull a country apart. One person whom I met at the rally gave me a very interesting definition of aggressor. It went like this… “An aggressor is someone who attacks a particular country before the USA does”.

Czech President Zeman Condemns Yatsenyuk’s Statement on Soviet “Invasion” of Germany and the Ukraine

Galician SS

Here’s the TRUTH about Galician war guilt… accept it if you can… if not, shut the fuck up, for the truth is the truth, whether you like it or not

______________________________

On Tuesday, Jiří Ovčáček, the Czech presidential spokesman, said that Czech President Miloš Zeman strongly condemned Ukrainian Prime Minister A P Yatsenyuk’s statement saying that the USSR invaded Germany and the Ukraine, saying, “Even the drafted version [of Yatsenyuk’s statement] didn’t disperse doubts that he made an attempt to revise the results of World War II”. Earlier, Zeman criticised Yatsenyuk, in one of his latest interviews, he called him “a prime minister of war”. On 8 January, Yatsenyuk told German state TV ARD, “All of us still clearly remember the Soviet invasion of the Ukraine and Germany”. On 9 January, RF Gosduma (lower house of the RF Federal Assembly) Foreign Affairs Committee chairman A K Pushkov called the Ukrainian prime minister’s statement “an extreme form of cynicism. The Ukrainian prime minister seeks political capital in Germany and Europe; he’s distorting well-known facts, backed in Europe itself… in Paris, Berlin, London, and in the USA. Nobody disputes the lawfulness of the anti-Hitler coalition’s actions. The USSR was its leading participant; it liberated Europe, including Germany, from Hitler, from Hitlerism”.

Czech President Miloš Zeman: “American Beer is Just Filthy Water”

01 beer and wurst

________________________________

Czech President Miloš Zeman eulogised his country’s trademark beverage, insulting American beer as “filthy water” during a presidential business summit in Kazakhstan. Asked which beer is the best in the world by long-time Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbaev, Zeman didn’t hesitate. He said, “We’ve built several breweries here already. We might make good planes, cars, or other products, but most importantly, never forget… Czech beer is the best in the world. No American company that offers filthy water instead of beer can compete with us”.

Zeman just concluded 450 million USD (20.28 billion Roubles. 2.76 billion Renminbi. 27.9 billion INR. 508 million CAD. 524 million AUD. 363 million Euros. 287 million UK Pounds) worth of business deals between Kazakhstan and Prague during a two-day business forum that finishes on Tuesday. Zeman’s unsolicited sentiments might offend American brewers, but this is far from the most controversial statement the politician, elected last year, made in the past few weeks. Earlier this month, the Russian-speaking President gave a profane interview on Czech radio, calling the Russian protest group Pussy Riot, “fucked up” and “bitches”, translating their name into Czech as “cunts”. After claiming that police tactics used to put down pro-democracy demonstrations in 1989 weren’t a massacre, a crowd holding red cards in Prague pelted Zeman with eggs during last week’s 25th anniversary of the beginning of the fall of the Communist government in Czechoslovakia. Zeman roared at the crowd, “I’m not afraid of you!” In reply, the crowd shouted that Zeman mustn’t come near a monument commemorating Communist oppression.

All the while, he continued to insist that Russia didn’t initiate the conflict in the eastern Ukraine, insisting that the West must lift sanctions on Moscow, and recognise the Crimea as part of Russia. Prague pollster Median said that Zeman’s inflammatory statements caused his popularity to slump from 58 to 37 percent in the space of a month. In addition, last week’s poll numbers show that 71 percent of Czechs believe that Zeman’s behaviour and public statements harm the image of the country abroad.

The Czech crowd seems in the style of arranged American provocations (“colour revolutions”)… it’s much too similar to recent “protest” actions in Budapest and Kiev. The Anglo Americans aren’t very bright… they use the same stereotyped script in all instances. This means that the USA is desperate, but lacking in new ideas… their deluded opium dream of being the “sole superpower” is falling apart around their ears… they didn’t attend to the lessons of their defeat in the American-fomented aggression in South Ossetia in 2008. Russia did attend to the shortcomings in their forces that the South Ossetia campaign uncovered. There was much in the Russian media on it… Red Star had a great deal on it. Reflect on this… the Russians captured American computers in Gori full of intel… the Anglos deny it. What does that tell you about Anglo veracity and intelligence (in the sense of “street smarts”, IQ, and worldview)? It doesn’t speak well of it, does it?
