For Putin, Alexei Navalny is something of a Hillary/Obama headache.
Navalny is the grandstanding activist who routinely voices opposition to Putin, has attempted to impeach Medvedev, and routinely holds unsanctioned protests in Moscow and St. Petersburg. The western media hail him as a demi-god in much the same fashion as Hillary and Obama.
While Navalny’s background as an activist is lengthy, starting in 2000, however, in 2014 a worthy connection was made:
In 2013, Navalny ran for mayor of Moscow pegged under the party RPR-PARNUS. PARNUS (Peoples Freedom Party) which is a liberal, social political party led by Mikhail Kasyanov, and is an associate member with the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats For Europe (ALDE)- an extreme Socialist organization. Navalny pulled out of the race after he was sentenced to prison for embezzlement and fraud.
In 2014, Boris Nemtzov, a co-chairman of the Russian “Peoples Party”, worked on a project of coalition between Navalny and Khodorkovsky who headed The Open Russia Foundation. The Open Russia Foundation is a parallel organization to Soros Open Society Foundation. The original board members of Open Russia were Henry Kissinger and Lord Jacob Rothschild. It is referred to as a philanthropic NGO, and after being shut down in 2006, it relaunched in 2014 creating an activist platform against Putin headed by Navalny and Khodorkovsky.
The New York Times and Washington Post have both supported the work of Open Russia as well as Khodorkovsky. That alone should be proof positive. But there is more.
In 2015, Russia banned two of Soros NGO’s; Open Society Institute and Open Society Foundation. CNBC refers to these organizations as ‘pro-democracy’ and their work in Russia as simply aimed at helping Russia transition from communism. Hmmmm.
The founding members of ALDE (Alliance of Liberals and Democrats For Europe) included The Free Democratic Party of Germany which supported the SS and Nazi’s. Other founding members from France to Luxembourg and Britain are politically far left Liberal Socialist. Which coincides with the Rothschild/Soros agenda for a One World Open Society.
So, while Trump has to swat the annoying buzz of Hillary and Obama like flies attacking sheep in the summer, Putin is busy with the likes of Open Russia and a particularly annoying fly named Navalny.
Today, Navalny is making the US media headlines, including Fox News, for the fact that when he organized an illegal protest in Moscow, he was arrested and jailed with a sentence of 15 days.
While the headlines from The Guardian, Newsweek, Chicago Tribune, BBC and New York Times, all very liberal and aligned with Hillary gate, all declare this arrest to be a further denouncement of Putin’s ‘thugocracy’ in censoring free speech! Lest we forget, a) We have no right whatsoever to make any statement with regard to Russia’s politics or laws b) Their government is sovereign – as is ours, c) Remember the DC Women’s March?, d) Remember all the Anti-Trump protests – that have resulted in numerous arrests?
The Russian protocol for arresting protestors is governed by law and involves taking them downtown, confirming and noting their name and address, and then immediately releasing them. They are not formally arrested. However, Navalny is an instigator, and that is different, so his arrest is completely lawful.
The State Department Spokesman, Mark Toner, has denounced the arrests… Why?
Toner is a hold over from the Obama administration having served with Victoria Nuland, a Bill Clinton patriot. She is best known for a phone conversation she had with Geoffrey Pyatt in which they discussed who they felt should be appointed to government positions in Ukraine after the US backed coup, adding an expletive with regard to the European Union.
Mark Toner is a part of the “Swamp”.
Navalny represents the world of Soros. He has received unprecedented funds for his candidacies as mayor and president all of which point to the potential for a classic Soros backed coup attempt in Russia.
