In Moscow, hundreds of thousands of customers of the sanctioned Bank Rossii, Sobinbank, SMP Bank, and Investcapital Bank discovered that their Visa and Mastercards were no longer being accepted. Their funds are only accessible at the banks themselves. Noyaya gazeta reports of spreading rumors that Russian banks will be drummed out of the worldwide SWIFT bank transfer system and that all Russian deposits in Switzerland are being blocked. Putin’s pledge to deposit his official $170,000 salary in Bank Rossii did little to calm its depositors. Runs are expected on the sanctioned banks by worried Russian depositors.

Sorry your card has been rejected. Thanks for using Bank Rossii.

In Washington, the U.S. Treasury further isolated the personal bank of Putin’s inner circle, Ozero Kooperativ, whose principals include the Putin confidants the Rottenburg brothers and Gennady Timchenko. The latter liquidated his holdings of the shadowy trading company Gunvor, yesterday after the U.S. Treasury declared that Putin has personal investments in Gunvor and access to its funds.

In Moscow, Putin met with leaders of the Russian business community to calm their concerns. He was his usual 45 minutes late to the meeting. After the public meeting, Putin met with board members of the Union of Russian Entrepreneurs for two hours in closed session. One source declared that the businessmen left the meeting “with much on their plate to digest.” They underscored the importance that “no one will undertake further aggressive actions” and were pleased that “Putin wanted a peaceful solution of all questions.”(Good luck on that one).

Thanks Barack ! This is how you win wars!

This is how you win wars..........stop the flow of money.

Thanks Barack..........Something Bush was too stupid to know when he went into Iraq..

In Brussels and in Washington, officials declared that they have prepared a third tranche of sanctions that would broaden the list of individuals sanctioned and include for the first time industrial enterprises, presumably including the state gas company (Gazprom) and the state oil company (Rosneft). With such sanctions, all investment projects involving Western investment and technology would be off the table.

After a week of indecision, Europe and the United States have decided to impose steep costs on Putin, even though its means economic hardship at home. They will not let Putin’s reckless use of raw power, bullying and lying go unpunished. As the Russian people wake up to the Big Lie of Russian mass media and pay a personal price for Putin’s adventurism, the warm glow of pride will fade. They will ask: Why did this guy, who has been around for fourteen long years, get us into this mess? Isn’t it time for him to go? If only we, or those high up in government, could figure a way.

The reaction to the first round of U.S. and European sanctions against the Russian ruling elite was laughter. Declared one of those singled out: Whoever put these sanctions together is a “joker.” Indeed, the first set of U.S. sanctions was weak and the European sanctions weaker. This is no longer the case. The Western sanctions bite where they hurt. Moreover, the U.S. Treasury has sent Vladimir Putin a chilling warning: We know where your money is, and we can expose you for what you are.” The Treasury hinted at a “direct (financial) relationship” between Putin and owner of a shadowy oil trading company chartered in Switzerland, who happens to be on the sanctions list.

A reputable Russian Web site just published the news that Putin’s purported business partner sold his shares worth billions of dollars, yesterday, one day before being placed on the sanctions list. It does not seem that Putin is laughing at the joke any more.

Why isn't FAUX reporting this? HAAAAA!

Russia’s most notable weakness is the absence of a rule of law that protects private property from arbitrary seizure. All Russian officials and businessmen understand that their assets can be taken away at any time if he or she falls on the wrong side of a powerful official. They have no choice, therefore, but to hide their money in what were safe havens in the West. Whatever they have in Russia is of little or no lasting value. Their whole life depends on their hidden foreign assets. In threatening the inner circle with the loss of their foreign assets, the whole of Russia’s elite and even moneyed middle class with their Miami Beach apartment or children in Ivy League schools are threatened.

The Crimean adventure has temporarily raised Putin popularity among the Russian people. His incessant Big Lie campaign has boosted Russian national pride, but Putin’s mass propaganda campaign cannot sustain the hysterical level it has reached. According to Russia’s most respected pollster, mass mobilization propaganda can be effective at most three months before its subjects come back to earth. At that point, there will be a reverse effect:“People will feel, first, the unpleasant effects of the Crimean action and then, from the other side, start to ask why Russia is in political isolation and why the economic position of Russia is worsening

Don't turn on FAUX news, you wont be getting this information like you hear on CBS, NBC, CNN, CSPAN and the other upteen news stations that delivery honest news stories......

This is how you win wars in the 21st century..........not bomb innocent countries on false information and add trilions to the debt and kill over 4000 of our soldiers !!!!!!!!!.Thanks Barack !

Dictatorial regimes, like Putin’s KGB state, look rock solid. Visible opposition has been liquidated by harsh repression. Attending a demonstration can be punished by jail time. Opposition press has been muzzled. But the Putins of the world must be wary. They do not know where the fatal spark will come from. History shows that Putin-like regimes are usually toppled from within, a classic case being the overthrow of Nikita Khrushchev in October of 1964, notably for his harebrained schemes (such as placing missiles in Cuba and nonsensical economic reforms).

Legendary Russian dissident, Vladimir Bukovsky, describes Putin’s likely overthrow in the following terms:“Those around Putin are like a criminal band, a group that operates according to ‘the simple principle: the head of the band works for the band and the band for him.’” Bukovsky warns that if this principle is violated”– and the fallout from Crimea could lead some of the band members to conclude that – then the leader is in trouble as are those around him who may decide that the world that allowed them to “steal for 14 years” and take the benefits is collapsing around them.

Their only option: Get rid of Mr. Putin. He like Khrushchev pursues dangerous harebrained schemes, which threaten us all.

We have tended to underestimate Putin. He usually has a chessboard-like come back. We’ll see what he has up his sleeve this time. Or perhaps he has already pulled out all the live bunnies he has.

A Costly Failed Experiment
March 21, 2014
The law's treatment of people is arbitrary and unfair. Its economic impact is only going to get worse.

With Sunday marking the fourth anniversary of the Affordable Care Act being signed into law, it's worth revisiting the initial purpose of the president's signature legislation: Universal coverage was the main goal.

Four years later, not even the White House pretends that this goal will be realized. Most of those who were uninsured before the law was passed will remain uninsured, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Democrats also fixated on another goal: protection for people with pre-existing conditions. One of the first things the new law did was create federal risk pools so that people who had been denied coverage for health reasons could purchase insurance for the same premium a healthy person would pay. Over the next three years, about 107,000 people took advantage of that opportunity.

Think about that. One of the main reasons given for interfering with the health care of 300 million people was to solve a problem that affected a tiny sliver of the population.

More recently, the president has had to explain why between four million and seven million people are losing their health insurance despite his promise that they would not....

Michelle Obama’s China trip taxing hotel employees:‘We can’t wait for this to be over’
March 22, 2014

Employees at the Chinese hotel hosting the first family are reportedly “fed up” with the Obama’s high-maintenance antics, and say they can’t wait for them to leave.

Staff workers at the Westin Beijing Chaoyang hotel told the Daily Mail that First lady Michelle Obama, her mother and two daughters have apparently outstayed their welcome. They have been staying in the $8,350-pre-night presidential suite in Beijing since Thursday.

According to one concierge staff member, the Obama women have inconvenienced “pretty much everyone” and the first lady’s mother, Marian Robinson, has been “barking at the staff” since she arrived.

“We can’t wait for this to be over, to tell you the truth,” the staffer told the Daily Mail.“We entertain many important people here, but this has been, I think very different.”

Since: Oct 12

FiveThirtyEight Senate Forecast: GOP Is Slight Favorite in Race for Senate Control
Mar 23, 2014

When FiveThirtyEight last issued a U.S. Senate forecast — way back in July — we concluded the race for Senate control was a toss-up. That was a little ahead of the conventional wisdom at the time, which characterized the Democrats as vulnerable but more likely than not to retain the chamber.

Our new forecast goes a half-step further: We think the Republicans are now slight favorites to win at least six seats and capture the chamber. The Democrats’ position has deteriorated somewhat since last summer, with President Obama’s approval ratings down to 42 or 43 percent from an average of about 45 percent before. Furthermore, as compared with 2010 or 2012, the GOP has done a better job of recruiting credible candidates, with some exceptions.
