Obama-Alinsky WH ❤ Russia

Michael McFaul: Obamunist diplomat pends U.S. Senate
The website shows that it has been nearly four months since a high-ranking official took Russia to task on a specific issue. Hillary Clinton did it on June 22, 2011, when she rebuked the Putin regime for refusing to register a new opposition political party for shamelessly political reasons. And although the rhetoric in the statement is quite tough, there is absolutely no hint of any policy response that the Obama administration would make to the Kremlin -- not even any reference to a direct communication expressing American opposition. Certainly, the Obama administration did nothing to reach out to the political leaders who had just been silenced in order to show those leaders American support, much less did it cut off any benefit to Russia or impose any sanction.

Nothing whatsoever was said about Russia between July 28 and October 6, 2011. No comment at all was made when Vladimir Putin announced his return to power as president for life, admitting that he had decided to do so, with Dmitri Medvedev's open consent, several years ago, having misrepresented to everyone at that time that the question had not been decided. No comment was made because, of course, the Obama government actively helped Putin maintain the pretense that he might not retake power, that Medvedev was a "real" president rather than a sham.

In May, the website reveals, Assistant Secretary Michael Posner met with (unnamed) "Russian human rights activists." Good luck trying to find out whom he met with, or indeed any reporting of any kind in the mainstream media about this meeting. Posner ended his remarks by stating: "As partners, we should work together to address these problems, while taking note of and supporting progress." Not only did he fail to offer any kind of tangible support, but he also urged the activists to focus as much on "progress" by the Putin regime as on problems.

All the while, McFaul chooses to totally ignore all the other spectacular failures of the Obama reset as far as democracy and human rights are concerned. The killers of politicians and journalists like Galina Starovoitova and Anna Politkovskaya and Natalia Estemirova have not been found. Press freedom has further tightened, and local politics are less democratic than ever. National elections are even more shamelessly rigged.

Russia continues to intentionally support dictatorship across the Middle East, contributing mightily to rising oil prices so that Russia can both line its pockets and spit in America's eye. It continues to aggressively seek to undermine all the nations in post-Soviet space, with the open goal of rehabilitating the Soviet empire. And Putin continues to issue poisonous anti-American statements, most recently declaring the United States to be a nation of parasites.

With an ambassasdor like McFaul in Moscow, Putin will feel no heat.
