“I got your drone coordinates for this year George” — Santa

[ Editor’s Note:  Good gosh… getting kicked out of Russia, it couldn’t happen to another guy. I have always been amazed at why so many countries allowed these espionage fronts to walk and and start stirring up destabilization trouble.

Security people had to be assigned to them to keep an eye on their troublemaking that could have been put on bigger targets. And then one day I put my devious hat on and did see a benefit. You let them in to see who among your population works with them, so you then have them all profiled as they are doing it openly.

That’s the only benefit I could think of. Please advise me of more in the comments. Then I put my “Attila Jim the Hun” hat on, and just want to chop off their heads, but then I say no…they aren’t worth it, with McCains and Grahams, and the rest of the loons around.

So I will stick to my original Santa list of 25 drone strikes of my choosing WITH full immunity if I can pass a lie detector test that my sole motivation was national security. Dear Pentagon, don’t actually send them to me, the gift certificates will be fine… Jim W. Dean ]

The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office has recognized George Soros’s and another affiliated organization as undesirable groups, banning Russian citizens and organizations from participation in any of their projects.

 

In a statement released on Monday, prosecutors said the activities of the Open Society Institute and the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation were a threat to the foundations of Russia’s Constitutional order and national security.

They added that the Justice Ministry would be duly informed about these conclusions and would add the two groups to Russia’s list of undesirable foreign organizations.

Prosecutors launched a probe into the activities of the two organizations – both sponsored by the well-known US financier George Soros – in July this year, after Russian senators approved the so-called “patriotic stop-list” of 12 groups that required immediate attention over their supposed anti-Russian activities.

Other groups on the list included the National Endowment for Democracy; the International Republican Institute; the National Democratic Institute; the MacArthur Foundation and Freedom House.

In late July, the Russian Justice Ministry recognized the US National Endowment for Democracy as an undesirable group after prosecutors discovered the US NGO had spent millions on attempts to question the legitimacy of Russian elections and tarnish the prestige of national military service.

The Law on Undesirable Foreign Organizations came into force in early June this year. It requires the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Foreign Ministry to draw up an official list of undesirable foreign organizations and outlaw their activities. Once a group is recognized as undesirable, its assets in Russia must be frozen, its offices closed and the distribution of any of its materials must be banned.

If the ban is violated, the personnel of the outlawed group and any Russian citizens who cooperate with them could face heavy fines, or even prison terms in the case of repeated or aggravated offences.

The Soros Foundation started working in Russia in the mid-1990s, but wrapped up its active operations in 2003.
