Whether Putin's statements can be interpreted as a heads up warning from Putin to his soon to be negotiating partner in the White House that Maidan-style orchestrated street violence and attacks on police will accompany Trump's inauguration is up to interpretation. What we do know is that the Russians are not only denying that they meddled in the November elections to help Trump, but pointing the finger at other foreign powers (Ukraine cough cough but also Germany) whose leaders either used their taxpayer resources to support Hillary or actively campaigned for her (on top of President Obama's meddling in the choice of the British people prior to the Brexit vote, which went against Obama's wishes).

And once time runs out, all of the positives go with it. And that introduces the following downside for the resident citizen slaves of the world’s reserve currency, the introduction to a problem with a negative multiplier tied to the currency's inflation/devaluation in some form or fashion. But there is a head above the crowd winner…..
Earlier this month, a vote was passed, 17-2, by a committee within the European Parliament to give legal personhood to robots. Ostensibly, this is being done for your own good.
