  • Doing business in Russia,

    Is it illegal, immoral, unpatriotic?
    Bill Clinton did think so when he was paid nicely for a speech he delivered there while his wife was Sec. Of State.
    But who else are the traitors according to the never Trumpers?
    Ever since the Democratic National Committee decided to turn their disdain for Bernie Sanders into disdain for Russians and Donald Trump, the New York billionaire has been seen as being in bed with Russian oligarchs and longing to cut deals in Moscow. Since when was it so bad to want to do business with the Russians?

    It's politically correct to hate on Russia these days. To like Russia even a bit means you support Vladimir Putin, or are impressed by the Russian mafia and probably hate polar bears, or something.

    If it is so bad to do business with the Russians, or even want to do business with the Russians, then maybe these companies should cut and run before the righteous threaten them with boycotts or defame their name in the press.

    Here's who's doing business with the bad guys.

    On July 13, Pfizer closed a joint venture agreement with Russian pharmaceutical company NovaMedica.

    Boeing has been in Russia for decades. About five years ago, it announced plans to invest $27 billion over the next 30 years. In July 2015, an agreement was signed between Russian titanium manufacturer VSMPO-Avisma Corporation, Boeing and the Ural Federal University for joint research and development projects.
    Ford has been in Russia for 13 years. In April 2015, the joint Russian-American venture Ford Sollers launched the production of the Ford Transit. The American brand launched four new vehicles in Russia last year, including the Focus and Fiesta models sold here.
    U.S. companies with an existing presence in Russia include, PepsiCo PEP +0.47%, Procter&Gamble, McDonald's, Mondelez International, General Motors, Johnson & Johnson, Cargill, Alcoa, and General Electric. GE recently signed a joint venture with oil firm Rosneft in expectation that Washington will actually one day lift sanctions on oil firms.
    Morgan Stanley, not Trump International, is a yuuuuge American investor in Russian real estate, according to Knight Frank. In April, a fund controlled by Morgan Stanley began negotiations to acquire several shopping centers in Moscow. That same month, their real estate investing fund acquired the Metropolis in Moscow for $1.2 billion from Capital Partners, a Kazakhstan developer.​
    Dispite our best intentions, the system is dysfunctional that intelligence failure is guaranteed.
    Russ Travers, CIA analyst, 2001
