    Prime minister Medvedev and cabinet resign to ease Putin’s path to lifelong power (video)

    Prime minister Medvedev and cabinet resign to ease Putin’s path to lifelong power | World | The Times

    Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian prime minister, resigned today in a dramatic move that he said was intended to smooth the way for changes to the constitution that could allow President Putin to rule for life.

    Mr Medvedev, 54, also said that his entire cabinet was stepping down. His televised announcement, which came as a major surprise, was made shortly after Mr Putin, 67, had called for a referendum on constitutional amendments that included an increase in the powers of parliament and the State Council, an advisory body to the Kremlin.
    ================================================== ===========
    President for life, just like China's Xi. And Trump has shown a lot of interest in following this same path. That could start America's second Civil War.

    Now doubt Dirtbag Donnie will congratulate his patron for tightening his grip on the throat of the Russian people.

    Russian Government Resigns, PM Medvedev Says


    It is extremely difficult to get a GOP Senator to accept something when their salary depends upon not accepting it.

    Same thing was said about Obama.

    Guess that makes you as dumb as those you hate.

    No, just with terrorist leaders and sympathisers.


    Look, as a national leader and figurehead, in a global economy, you are going to have to rub elbows with some Dispicable people. Its just the way it is. Clinton did it, Bush Jr, as did Sr, Obama did it, so has Trump.

    Reality check.

    And lets say your worst fears are realized...that after winning and completing his 2nd term, Trump attempted to keep his office...his supporters would turn on him so fast, he'd be assassinated before he could even learn to spell and tweet the word assassinated.

    Stop the BS. No US president has palled around with the worlds worst dictators like Trump has.

    He betrayed our Kurdish allies to appease the Turk dictator, and ignored a brutal murder to save his Saudi dictator from Congressional sanctions.

    He has lied to protect the Russian dictator, and in the last week said nothing as a US citizen died at the hands of the Egyptian dictator.
