Sechin to Skigin: Those Who Escaped “The List”

In some cases it is much more interesting to see who wasn’t on the list of sanctioned Russian officials and individuals, than who was on it. Did US Oil have any input into the list make-up? Sechin’s absent from the list suggest some of Putin’s Boyars are now untouchable.

If Putin Goes Into Eastern Ukraine… or the South

Then Mark Galeotti is correct Putin and Putinism  would then be guided more by the rules of a barroom brawl than chess and it would also have significant consequences for not only how the US and Europe deals with Russia but it would also have significant consequences for Russians, everywhere.

Chairman Rogers predicts southern venture.

How Rich! Hague Warns Against Russian “oligarchisation!”

The Foreign Secretary of the country that has perhaps benefitted most from Russian globetrotting oligarchs warns against Russian “oligarchisation.” Any bets on who is mostly likely to be Gaddafied off first – Cameron or Putin? Calls to famous Russian oligarchs residing in Britain reportedly went unanswered.

“Separately, William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, warned that the same gangster capitalism that has blighted both Russia and Ukraine was now spreading to parts of Europe, particularly the former republics of Yugoslavia and Greece, which is still reeling from the Eurozone crash.

In an article for today’s Sunday Telegraph, in which he described Russia’s annexation of Crimea as “an outrageous land grab”, Mr Hague said that networks of pro-Kremlin oligarchs had gained a strong foothold in the region, via investment in the energy sector, the media, and buy-ups of struggling banks.

That has bought increasing Kremlin influence with the region’s leaders, some of whom have gone so far as publicly backing Russia’s military action in Ukraine.

Warning of what he described as Russian “oligarchisation” coming to south-east Europe, Mr Hague said: “There is an evident danger of some of the same corrupting habits spreading into democratic countries. In South East Europe and the Balkans in particular, we are seeing the creation of concentrations of economic, political and media power which could inhibit the development of genuine or stable democracy and reverse progress already made.”

A British government source said the situation raised potential concerns about the European Union’s plans to offer membership to Bosnia and Serbia, both of which are home to hardline Serb factions who are strongly-pro Russian. “You do have to ask how much the EU would want to have a specially close relationship with countries that are so heavily in thrall to the Kremlin,” the source said.

Only last week, Milorad Dodik, the leader of the Republika Serbska, a Serbian statelet within Bosnia that is strongly pro-Russian, described last Sunday’s referendum in Crimea on joining Russia as “legitimate and democratic”. America and the EU have denounced the referendum as an illegal charade carried out “down the barrel of a gun”. “

Bashing Morell’s New Boss in the Private Sector

Hillary's Rain Maker

Hillary’s Rain Maker

From manipulating the messaging in “government service” to the private sector, thoroughly seamless and thoroughly corrupt, the following from an AP story on lack of transparency in government:

“Likewise, Cook, departing as the editor at Gawker, was exasperated when the State Department told him it couldn’t find any emails between journalists and Philippe Reines, Hillary Clinton’s personal spokesman when Clinton was secretary of state. BuzzFeed published a lengthy and profane email exchange about the 2012 attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi between Reines and its correspondent, Michael Hastings.

“They said there were no records,” Cook said of the State Department.”

No records, no records, no records…. as we have been trying to tell the FBI for several years in regards to INS, USCIS, and ICE records — government officials, a la Sandy Berger’s Socks Shuffle, are either hiding or destroying government records to avoid investigations and prosecutions, in turn they are being paid off by private sector jobs and protected by high priced lawyers and the DC elite’s ability to manipulate and morph into the very media investigating and reporting on said officals.

Note to FBI, please open up Morell investigation and file it right behind Maxwell investigation. A FOX story reports this:

“Morell may have higher political ambitions considering his employment at Beacon Global Strategies, a government relations firm founded by close Hillary Clinton confidante Philippe I. Reines.”

But they missed this:

Some talking points from Morell’s Story:

Porter Goss Too Political!

Messaging Above Agency and Mission!
