Anti-Putin Pussy Riot Members: ‘Drive Him Away’

Two of the three members were granted amnesty this week, and they say they will now focus their efforts entirely on activism.

The members of the Russian feminist punk band Pussy Riot, who spent two years in prison until they were pardoned by President Vladimir Putin on Monday, said Friday they still want him out of office.

“We still want to do what we said in our last performance for which we spent two years in prison: drive him away,” Nadezhda Tolokonnikova said at a news conference Friday, the Associated Press reports.

The three band members were convicted of hooliganism for their unauthorized performance at the iconic Christ The Savior Cathedral in March 2012. One had her sentenced suspended last year, and Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina were released this week.

The two members granted amnesty told reporters that they planned to focus on activism, including plans to help Russian inmates, and they called on world leaders to boycott the Winter Olympics that will be in Sochi in February in protest of Putin.

I hope they succeed. Even though majority of Russians are ignorant and expect things to be handed to them on a silver platter - they still deserve better, better than the thieves they have right now in power.

You go girls! Let's hope more and more people will put on the pressure to remove this nasty tyrant from power, Russia deserves much much  better than him. Great to see his attempts to intimidate have not worked, not with you, the Greenpeace people or Khodorkovsky, no matter how long you put the innocent in jail after show trials..

In fact, none went to jail, the sacrilegious stunt they pulled in the Moscow cathedral being a Kremlin psy-op, a warning to others what will transpire if protest goes too far. 


The vulgar named and talentless "punk rock" group was created by the Kremlin, each member of the group being the children of Soviet era Communist  Party members.


For those unfamiliar with this subject, the "collapse" of the USSR in 1991 was a strategic ruse under the “Long-Range Policy" (LRP). What is the LRP, you ask? The LRP is the "new" strategy all Communist nations signed onto in 1960 to defeat the West with. The last major disinformation operation under the LRP was the "collapse" of the USSR in 1991. 


The next major disinformation operation under the LRP will be the fraudulent collapse of the Chinese Communist government. When that occurs, Taiwan will be stymied from not joining the mainland. This is why China is buying up gold all over the word. It is believed that China currently has 3,000 [metric] tonnes of gold. When China has 6,000 [metric] tonnes it will have the minimum gold reserves necessary for its currency, the yuan, to replace the United States' dollar as the world's reserve currency, that is after the fraudulent collapse of the Chinese Communist government (the United States gold reserves is approximately 8,133.5 [metric] tonnes).


Google: 'Krasnaya Zvezda'

“Krasnaya Zvezda” is Russian (no kidding!) for "Red Star", the official newspaper of Soviet and later Russian Ministry of Defense. The paper's official designation is, "Central Organ of the Russian Ministry of Defense." Note the four Soviet emblems next to the still existing Soviet era masthead, one of which pictures Lenin's head! Those Soviet emblems and Lenin's head can't still be next to the masthead of the Russian Ministry of Defense's newspaper due to their association with the Soviet Union and its ideals of world revolution; the nations of the world constituting the Soviet Union!
The fraudulent "collapse" of the USSR (and East Bloc) couldn't have been pulled off until both political parties in the United States (and political parties elsewhere in the West) were co-opted by Moscow & Allies, which explains why verification of the “collapse” was never undertaken by the West, such verification being (1) a natural administrative procedure (since the USSR wasn’t occupied by Western military forces); and (2) necessary for the survival of the West. Recall President Reagan's favorite phrase, "Trust, but verify".


Now you know why the hated Communist Red Star is still placed on the bows of NEW Russian Naval vessels (and the wings of Russian military aircraft), and why the "electorates" of the 15 republics that made up the USSR continue to "elect" for President Soviet era Communist Party Quislings. There have been 52 such Presidential "elections" since the "collapse" of the USSR (as of July 1, 2013), resulting in 40 Soviet era Communist Party member Quislings being elected. That's 76.92%! If the "collapse" of the USSR were legitimate not one such Quisling would have been elected President. In fact, such persons would have been either arrested in the interests of national security or shunned by society. Remember, Communist Party members made up no more than 10% of the USSR, and it was they who for 74 years persecuted the remaining 90% of the population.


In fact, the KGB agent Quislings that controlled the Russian Orthodox Church before the “collapse” of the USSR are to this day still in control. They were never identified and thrown out of that institution after the “collapse” of the USSR. The same is true for all other religious institutions in the other 14 republics of the USSR, including East Bloc nations, proving not only co-option of those religious institutions, but that the "collapses" of the East Bloc and USSR were disinformation operations:

@YoshiGet away with it??  Not in the long term.  All dictators fall - all.  Human history shows that.  In his case, pride comes before a fall, that's all we're seeing.
