President Trump Leads 21 Nation Coalition In Simultaneous Expulsion of Russian Diplomats…

Earlier today President Donald Trump led the largest ever coalition response in response to Russia’s alleged use of a nerve agent to poison a former Russian spy living in the United Kingdom. In total, 21 countries simultaneously expelled Russian diplomats.

The Trump administration ordered the expulsion of 60 Russian diplomats from the US identified as intelligence agents, and the closure of the Russian consulate in Seattle. 48 of the intelligence agents worked at the Russian embassy in Washington DC and 12 were posted at the United Nations in New York.

President Trump was joined by simultaneous action from: France, Albania, Australia, Canada, Norway, Ukraine, Sweden, Spain, Romania, Poland, Netherlands, Lithuania, Latvia, Italy, Hungary, Germany, Finland, Estonia, Denmark, Croatia, Czech Republic and the U.K.

London – It’s the biggest collective expulsion of alleged Russian intelligence officers in history, according to British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Diplomats are being kicked out of at least 21 countries — 16 European Union states, the United States, Canada, Ukraine, Norway and Albania — in a coordinated effort that represents a significant diplomatic victory for the UK, which blames Russia for poisoning Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia.

The UK has already expelled 23 Russian diplomats. Moscow retaliated by sending the same number of UK diplomats back, and by shuttering British cultural institutions in the country. (read more)

    All kinds of people defending Stalin here. Because Putin loves him some Stalin, and a shocking number of people here love them some Putin.

    Stalin, one of the most evil men in the history of the world, being praised at CTH, as though this was a Democrat enclave.

    I never thought I’d see the day.

      I find it hard to believe that anyone would have anything good to say about good ole “Uncle Joe”. He was a butcher and we helped in the rape and butcher of Berlin by standing aside and letting him do it.

      The ever compliant media of the time was trying to paint him as benevolent “uncle Joe”. It just shows how far back the infiltration of our government has been by socialist/communist agents.

      Hey, if it’s not too much trouble, could you please point out all these comments that are “praising Stalin”? And NO, you don’t get to point to a positive comment regarding Putin and claim that’s the same as praising Stalin. Take your time…

      NewfTea, I haven’t read all the posts but I haven’t seen one that praises Stalin. And yeah we all know that Stalin was one of the most evil men in history. But it’s just reality that Putin and many others in Russia, based on their perspective and experiences, view Stalin in a different light. And as far as some of the posters being thrown in a dungeon by Putin I bet they might have a similar risk if they visited some of the countries we are allied with. Just saying.

      I think the skepticism in many posts is a direct result of finding out that powerful elements in our government (and media) tried to destroy Donald Trump as a candidate, and continue to try to destroy Donald Trump as President.

      And another thing (and slightly tongue in cheek). When Theresa May gave Putin until midnight to explain what they had done, I wish Putin had turned around and told Ms. May that she had until midnight to explain why Saudi Arabia has used British supplied cluster bombs in Yemen.

      Ummm, I just went and fact checked your allegation and guess what I found? Nothing. I see one commenter Deplorable Ukie who cut and pasted some anti-Stalin stuff several times ( understandable if he actually is Ukrainian ) and just one commenter replied by correctly pointing out that he is mis-characterizing the alleged Putin quote. But there is no-one defending Stalin anywhere.

      So NewfTea, now that you have been exposed you should do the right thing and apologize to Sundance and all the commenters for your libelous lie or explain just how you got it so wrong. And maybe the one commenter Orygun who liked your comment can explain what he liked so much about his libelous lie.

      To Sundance, Ad Rem and others: be suspicious of this commenter. Why? He attempted to defame CTH and Sundance by poisoning the comments by alleging pro-Stalin sympathies ( aka “Russian bots” are spreading propaganda again ), which would rather nicely fit the censorship model being constructed by Facebook/Google/Twitter and their helpers at SPLC and Snopes. Logic: Why not de-rank, de-monetize or just disappear such horrible websites?

      This is the kind of thing that anti-Trump and anti-Sundance zealots at RightScoop or any number of NeverTrump sites would do ( not to mention DailyKaos, HuffPo, DU, and Salon ). Ridicule and defame, Alinsky tactics handed down by Lenin himself, and ironically used throughout the Stalin years to decimate his internal opposition.

      Another possibility is that deep state actors are is sabotaging Sundance’s site out of frustration that he is closing in the actual election meddling and conspiracy within the corrupt USA and UK deep state apparatus with his detailed explainers into the nuts and bolts of FBI and GCHQ and others. That would even be worse IMHO, because such trolls would be financed by my tax dollars. Collect those IP Addresses and you may learn some things once enough have penetrated here. There may be another huge story to break if tax money is financing the trolling of the Internet and framing of everyone from Trump to Sundance and yes, even Russia. Story of the century IMHO.

        Blade,
        if I remember correctly I already told you that I voted for President Trump twice: in the primary and the general election. So I am not “meddling in our election”.
        _____________

        I think you know very well that condemning Stalin is not demonizing Soviet Union, Russia or Georgia, condemning Hitler is not demonizing Germany or Austria, condemning Mao is not demonizing China.

        ( Like criticizing Obama is not racism, criticizing Islam is not islamophobia, criticizing Hillary is not sexism.
        So criticizing Putin is not russophobia).
        ______________

        Go back and read what I posted. I didn’t compare Putin to Stalin. Neither did the links that I posted.

        ‘Putin quote is being mis-characterized.’
        No, it isn’t.

        ( I am curious why you wrote that. You very often upvote disinformation about Russia and Ukraine regularly supplied by a certain commenter. At some point are you gonna explain just what your stake in this is, Blade? )
        _______________

        I put out information about Stalin’s popularity growing under Putin.
        Do you have a problem with that?
        ______________
        .
        The important question is why his popularity is growing.

        The important question is why 78% of Russians agree to grant the full state power to one person.

        I am old enough to understand that this is the result of manipulation of public opinion.
        _____________

        I don’t fall for the Kremlin propaganda any more than for the Uniparty propaganda.
        _______________

        To me it is never too often to condemn Stalin, Hitler, and Mao.

        “History repeats itself, but in such cunning disguise that we never detect the resemblance until the damage is done.”

        “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

          By the way, for readability you might want to use ‘BLOCKQUOTE’ tags for copy/paste quotes of others just for readability. Just save this template ( hopefully it renders correctly ) …

          <P><BLOCKQUOTE>” xxx “</BLOCKQUOTE>

          … and then select or double-click the xxx and then paste in the quotated text. I don’t know about others but using horizontal lines to indicate quotes doesn’t help much since the quotes appear in the same font and margin-width. Using blockquote tags gives an indent and uses italics.

          For most of what you just wrote, I absolutely agree. No-one can condemn Stalin enough, or Mao, or Hitler, or Pol Pot. But perhaps we have a language barrier here, or just plain semantic misunderstanding, the inverse is also perfectly true because many people condemn Germany and Russia exactly by using Hitler and Stalin. It happens routinely with Germans, and as they are so emasculated from self-flagellation they rarely if ever defend themselves. Now you have Putin doing the politically incorrect ( always a good thing ) and calling them out for it. The way I see it from all the way over here, they are getting fed up with the anti-Russian, anti-Slavic nonsense as they should be. Good for them. One hopes that someday males are born in Germany with the testicular fortitude to fight for themselves as well.

          Go back and read what I posted. I didn’t compare Putin to Stalin. Neither did the links that I posted. “Putin quote is being mis-characterized.” No, it isn’t.

          The link you posted is awful light on facts. Several two word “quotes” with no context. Please show the entire speech where Putin praises Stalin ( in English since I don’t speak Russian or Ukrainian ). I see that photo of some young female dummy carrying a Stalin photo. So what? We got dumb broads here who carry Hillary signs, others who sleep with or marry Charles Manson and Ted Bundy. The world is absolutely full of cuckoo birds. I’m not versed enough today to know what her message might be, perhaps it is just hatred of Ukraine and using Stalin is loosely equivalent to carrying dead fetus photos at a pro-abortion march. I don’t know. Anyway, what little reporting of that Putin quote I saw makes perfect sense to me. And you know what makes even more sense? The united outcry from politically correct dummies jumping in unison on that to say See! He loves Stalin. Nuke Russia! I stand by what I said before, that you are doing yourself and Ukraine ( if you are Ukrainian, still haven’t answered ) any favors with this extremely thin piece of hyperbole.

          ( I am curious why you wrote that. You very often upvote disinformation about Russia and Ukraine regularly supplied by a certain commenter. At some point are you gonna explain just what your stake in this is, Blade? )

          My stake? Jeez, that was my exact question to you yet you don’t answer and reply with the same question back to me? Okay then. My stake is simple. It is my tax dollars funding these messes in both Ukraine and Syria. And we have zero reason to do either of them, zero Constitutional interest, and zero Congressional authorization. I fully agree with Bull Durham harping on both of those fiascos, he is American too and is also funding these military industrial complex adventures with his tax dollars. We live in a broke country with our own problems to sort out. I also agree with him and many others about NATO. Kill the damn thing, but not before itemizing and billing Europe for the lifetime costs for it and also the greater Marshall plan. NATO now is nothing more than a welfare plan that Euroweenie leaches are bleeding dry. At $21 Trillion in debt we have no money anyway, and it literally means that we are borrowing money from my kids and grandkids and their future kids and grandkids to finance these current geopolitical games. That is my stake. Do I need more than that? And what about you? What is yours? I told you, I have nothing at all against Ukraine or the Baltics or anyone else for that matter ( except Islamists ). Though I sure wish they would wake up and shake “us” off and realize they are no more important to American uniparty globalists than Castro was to Khrushchev. Even less so since Khrushchev was really posturing to get our missiles out of Turkey, however the globalist warmongers meddling in Ukraine and Syria have far more sinister plans in mind.

          I put out information about Stalin’s popularity growing under Putin. Do you have a problem with that? The important question is why his popularity is growing.

          What “Stalin” growing popularity? The danger over there is for either globalists to get themselves a puppet in Moscow or for Communism itself to somehow slip back into power. Is this some Enemedia opinion poll from hacks who cannot even measure such things over here in a free country? What I see from here is the same kind of push from world globalists to use peer politically correct peer pressure shaming to yell about “Stalin in Russia” that they had in Germany for Hitler. Sounds good on paper but it only served to neuter the German male into submission creating a vacuum ironically for an “ex” Communist East German Stasi broad to fill and ruin the country. So I say hands off, cut the political correctness, let Russia sort itself out and keep those damn Brits, French, Germans and yes, us Americans the hell out of there. No people on the planet endured Communism longer than the poor Russian people, even Ukrainians. They were the first to fall and last to emerge with no help from us. In fact we prolonged it by recognizing Stalin under FDR, sitting at the table with him at summits despite his Hitler love affair and pact to invade Poland just a couple years prior. Though too late for Ukraine, we could have short-circuited 4 more decades of cold war by assassinating Stalin as he flew home from Tehran, Potsdam or Yalta ( it worked for Yamamoto ). Putin is not Stalin. And Putin is just a mortal man who is just one step on their path back. And they have a long way to go. We don’t get to pick their rulers nor should we try.

    People are becoming too cynical and falling into the intended trap.

    Putin is NOT a nice guy. If you think that he has never had people murdered, then you are being sheep. He is former KGB, he never forgets a slight. This current event is not his first rodeo. He has done it many times and gotten away with it.

    Russia is not a friend, they are a competitor. Never forget that.

      I’m amazed at all these people saying, in effect, “I love me some Putin, and Putin loves him some Stalin, so Stalin is OK with me!”

      I have to wonder whether there are professional propagandists at work. Lots of usernames I don’t recognize, including several using Cyrillic script

      The biggest irony is that a lot of posters here, who so admire Putin for “strong leadership,” would find themselves in a dungeon if they lived in Putin’s beloved USSR — possibly put there by Putin himself.

      No one thinks Putin is a nice guy, or forgets his KGB roots. He doesn’t forget, but he is a pragmatist and a hard nosed negotiator too – look at Turkey. Russia could easily already at war with Turkey after several incidents like the shoot down. Instead Putin has sucked Turkey toward Russia’s orbit.

      Russia has been undermined by NWO types, like the Bushes, bankers etc. Including its somewhat hard earned paranoia, it is pushed toward China. That is even worse, Russian resources and arms strengthen China, which is a literally huge adversary. We do not need to provoke the man with insulting lies and false flags from NWO types; we do need to be on guard against them too. It is entirely valid to look before we leap.

        Mike, I think you succinctly stated what many posters have written. Excellent job.

        And one of the specific things you mentioned is very important: about the NWO types, Bushes etc. I admit I’m relatively new to this way of thinking about Russia. It’s the John McCain, Graham, Bush neo-com types along with the military industrial intelligence complex that want to push NATO right up to Russia ‘s border. Because they want continuous, perpetual war. Right now they want us to go for regime change in Syria. No matter that we risk an altercation with Russia. The risk of nuclear war – no big deal.

        Russia is our “enemy” only because Russophobes like you have made it one. Putin sought friendship with US and the West. It would be constructive if the US would take him up on that.

        The US should strive to be friends with every nation and every national leader on earth. This would be a policy of peace. It would also be a policy of responsibility. The US should not overthrow elected leaders of sovereign states, such as Libya, Syria and so forth. If Russia is our enemy, it is because we are not a friend to other nations. Indeed our government supports the killing of many civilians worldwide.

        Where, other than from Deep State propaganda, do you, Truthless Vincit, get the Idea that Russia under Putin, through it’s own actions, is an enemy of the US? Is Russia an enemy because they try to defend the right of Assad, for example, to remain the popular elected leader of Syria?

        Putin is not perfect. He has betrayed Novorossiya. But he has done nothing to make Russia an enemy of America.
