above article goes into the ancient history of Paul Manafort’s lobbying
contract with Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska from 2006 to 2009.
This was long before the Neocon Globalists mounted their mass media
propaganda campaign (which started in earnest in 2014) to turn Russia
into an enemy because of the impending bankruptcy and collapse of the US
Let me first say that I find it extremely distasteful for
any American be paid to lobby on behalf of a Foreign government or
foreign Oligarch, irrespective of whether that foreign country is Saudi
Arabia, Israel, Russia, Ukraine, Qatar, Dubai, Kuwait, the UK, Germany,
Australia or anywhere else.
America already has far too many American Oligarchs buying the endemically corrupt politicians in Washington DC as it is.
Now lets get to the multitude of points that the AP’s crude propaganda article left out.
The rise of the Russian Oligarchs
Oleg Deripaska got his start as a Russian aluminum tycoon when U.S.
puppet Boris Yeltsin followed the disastrous advice of Goldman Sachs and
other American Globalist Neoliberals to sell off Russian State assets
for pennies on the dollar.
Deripaska gained control of Sibirsky Aluminium Group and RUSAL – which
is how he came to be a Russian billionaire Oligarch in the first place.
