100 thoughts on “Risky Russian Deal A Tough Choice For Kentucky In Economic Need | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC

  1. #MoscowBitch is literally selling-out the US.
    WTAF!?
    Congress is corrupted beyond credibility. #Kentucky is the weak link in the Union, with the Governor justifying treason.

  2. Moscow Mitch has blocked any and all bi-partison bills from the House of Representatives from even reaching floor of the Senate to discuss securing our voting system. A Russian oligarch is paying him back by building a multi-million dollar factory in his home State.

  3. Keep eyes wide open on Russia and trump; trump promised WHAT??? too Putin??? ALASKA, uranium??? Part of themany deals for a 2016 THANK YOU. Is the Russian jet fly over the Ak and Canada borders a reminder to trump, to PAY UP? His secret dealings and marching orders will be exposed.

  4. So what all of these politicians and media people seem to agree on is that money is more important than values. Basically, throw your hands up, the whores and the prostitutes win. Virtue goes out the window if there's money to be made. Shame on you America!

  5. what are the promises made by The Russian ?? I'll bet The Russian promised many, many jobs.
    Trouble with that promise is that this plant, in order to be cost effective, will most likely be
    staffed with AI and a small work force of Humans. And what of the profits? Pensions?
    Health Insurance?? Better look into that. And maybe check into Moscow Mitch's gain in
    the whole deal.

  6. The aluminum plant is payola. Why aren't they building those plants in Russia? If there's such a huge demand for aluminum why aren't companies like RJ Reynolds building plants in the US? If they are stealing from Russian taxpayers to buy US influence, this will take his further down the Russian rabbit hole.

  7. Black people! Don't worry about what President Donald Dump is doing to the American economy.
    I promise it won't hurt us at all.
    They can't do anything to us we haven't been going through for the last 100 years.
    But those idiots who voted for him is about to see a big difference in their livelihood.
    This is all a part of the most highs plan to bring them down.
    It won't hurt us much but it'll destroy them…
    Hallelu YAH!

  8. Have this country fallen so low that we have to accept deals from Russia our sworn enemy…Kentucky you should had demanded better a long time ago!

  9. Was a conservative former republican, now independent, who gave him the name Moscow Mitch. Joe Scarborough said it times in a row on his talk show.

  10. Moscow Mitch keeps dipping his hands in the kitty. He knows he will need to retire soon so he is trying to grab all he can. I think we should retire him to prison, or better yet, exile him to Moscow. He and Putin could be best buds.

  11. So how many workers that live there have the required skills to get a job at the new plant? I'll bet most who work there will travel to the area to work and all that will happen is to increase the population. Good luck y'all.

  12. But Mitch McConnell IS helping Russia, that is the TRUTH!!! Every time somebody comes with an idea, a Bill to go to the floor HE BLOCKS! Wtf?? It really makes you wonder WHY???

  13. It's not just the sanctions. Moscow Mitch has blocked voting on any legislation to protect our elections, in spite of Trump appointed officials in the FBI, CIA, and other intelligence agencies run by Trump appointees warning us that Russia is doing it again. He took an oath to defend democracy and he's betrayed that oath and all of us.

  14. Remember when we were all worried that China and the Saudis were buying up the entire country, lock, stock, and barrel?
    We forget that Republicans are willing to sell off America to anyone
    Next thing you know, you'll be renting your home from the Kim regime if the kickbacks are right

  15. If we put the shoe on the proverbial other foot, how does Trump go into other nations and build hotels and golf courses? He works with the local government and leaves out the voice of the protesters. He pushed through his agenda by promising jobs, but leaves the land scarred. This is what Trump is doing in Alaska, for example, with the Pebble Mine. But, the Pentagon released the Russian Strategic Intentions paper, and it says that they can control the United States by investing. there are better ways to stimulate the economy than by turning it over to our adversaries.

  16. So now McConnell has lifted sanctions against the murderous Putin regime in order to benefit himself; even as McConnell refuses to allow Any protections against Russian interference in the upcoming election. Who says that Trump and McConnell don't think alike??
    So McConnell has sold his soul for Russian cash, and now Kentucky will have to decide if its going to sell its soul (and sell our country out) for Russian cash…..
    Our Democracy was easy to sell, wasn't it?

  17. Cadet Bone Spurs is now the Orange Mussolini LOCUST King leading a swarm of ravenously hungry LOCUSTS intent upon devouring our cherished democracy.

  18. Moscow Mitch McConnell has been holding up judge ships until they can be appointed with individuals partisan to Republican politics.
    Donald Trump has closed in on appointing as many judges as President Obama had in eight years.

  19. That’s capitalism at its best. It was nice knowing you America. Guess who’s going to be happy and who’s going to suffer.

  20. This one out of the "Right's handbook" if their real Americans they'll look to our government, not a foreign country that's a threat. Trump said he'll bring our American job's. They voted for Trump not Putin

  21. What we must remember they pay Mitch McConnell a lot of money to build that Russian company in Kentucky so he knew and they paid him a lot ofmoney that is why Mitch McConnell past that bill in the Senate to benefit those Russian

  22. where Kentucky better watch out because now Mitch McConnell got paid the past that bill for the Russians to build deck company in Kentucky and who's going to be running that company Russians right in Kentucky

  23. I just hope Mitch McConnell keeps those Russian in Russian oligarchs in Kentucky know we don't need them in other states

  24. The special prosecuter said their was someone in Congress that was a unindicted conspirator. I wonder could that be moscow Mitch?

  25. This is what enemies of our democracy want, they have put us against the wall to the point that we have to make hard decisions like this. In good consciousness, I cannot turn down the idea of bringing back jobs to America.

    But we cannot forget that Republican deregulation is what allowed corporations to put us in this position, so let's not look at them as saviors. This is only a small patch on the big hole they've put us in.

  26. Tom Hamburger ? Trump must love this guy. Who cares what he might say about Trump, he's named for Donnie's favorite food.

  27. Choice is sell your soul to the same Russian that attacked your election or tell them to get stuffed on principles and legitimacy. We know what traitor trump and Moscow Mitch will do

  28. Risky Russian deal??? Damned traitorous is what it is! The nation solely responsible for attacking our democracy!! They attacked our election!! And Mitch McConnell is making a deal with these basterds that gives them a role in OUR NATION AND OUR ECONOMY!! HOW DAMNED STUPID CAN A POLITICIAN BE?? THEY ARE OUT OF CONTROL AND WE THE PEOPLE SIT BY AND WORRY ABOUT WHAT T.V. PROGRAM IS ON NEXT!

  29. $200 million isn't enough money to hamstring your country, McConnell is like an evil vizier, Rasputin springs to mind.

  30. Ironically, "Moscow" Mitch McConnell "earned" that nickname by doing NOTHING (i.e. blocking votes from getting legislation passed). I don't know why he even goes to work. Since his tax cuts are part of the "Who Wants to be a Billionare" game they are playing he could just "phone a friend" and stay on the couch. Elected officials are supposed to do what the people want or better yet what's best for them. How do we get back to that?

  31. "You can't be picky"
    I hope Kentucky voters remember that when they vote between a traitor sellout or a democrat in 2020.

  32. Hopefully, the American people will say NO RUSSIAN BUSINESSES IN America!!!
    Pootin wants to push businesses in America to get political control– Read up! Please. SAY NO!

  33. Yay for allowing our foreign adversary the chance to tighten their fingers round our purse

  34. It's not only the fact that Moscow Mitch lifted sanctions on Deripaska for a $200 million investment, the Russian Lobbyist former Sen Vitter that met with McConnell for the deal got his grossly-unqualified wife a lifelong appointment as a federal judge. Republicans don't even bother to hide their corruption anymore.

  35. In the past, conquest of other nations was accomplished with military might. While nations still rely on a strong military for a defensive posture, Russia and China have moved to conquest by cyber warfare and economics. The US is the dinosaur using the old playbook, and we're getting pushback for our years of doing so. In the meantime, Russia has been building strong alliances and expanding their economic influence. Just as China has been pushing westward with their BRI and putting nations in their debt. The US plays the short game. Russia and China can play the long game because they have long-term leaders. IMO Putin is just sitting back and waiting for Trumpster and the greedy, corrupt lot in Congress to cause our economy to implode so Russia can swoop in and offer their economic "help" to bolster our sagging economy…….as well as line their own pockets in the process. If Russia can own and exert enough control over an economy, it effectively owns the nation. Trumpster and Turtle may not be consciously working as traitors in actual collaboration with Russia. They just don't care about what happens as long as they get rich.

  36. Moscow Mitch and corrupt Trump-appointee wife Moscow Mama have no place to go when Trump is vanquished except the snowy streets of Moscow. When will the midnight flight depart?

  37. IF THERE IS NOT OTHER CHOICE!! YEST DON'T!!! DON'T!!! DON'T!!!! VOTE!! DON'E VOTE!! DON'T UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE DON'T VOTE!—–TRUMP & BARR! BARR! WERE FULLY RESPONSIBLE ON THE INCARCERATION ON JEFFREY EPSTEIN! SO HE IS TO SOLE RESPONSIBLE ON THE ""SUICIDE"" OR KEELING OF JEFFREY> WHAT ABOUT THE SECRET VISIT WILLIAM BARR DO! ON JAIL TO JEFFREY EPSTEIN?????

  38. Tom Hamburger?? Is that his real name? Jesus christ. My name is Harold Meatloaf Taco.. I thought i was the only one.. Btw, i love a good burger!

  39. Political payback from the Kremlin for his aid and comfort. Vote out the disgustin, un-American lizard. He has nothing to contribute to the future of the US.

  40. Yes Rachel, the older boys and girl's are showing their shade.
    Destruction of America from within.. THE cult will never leave them.

  41. There are plenty of "idled" aluminum plants along the Colombia River in Washington State that could be used if the country needs more aluminium production. But it's a Blue State.

  42. McConnell's Russian billionaire SUGAR DADDY, Deripaska is a Russian citizen, born in St. Petersberg. But Deripasksa also has Cyprus citizenship, conveniently. Cyprus is a notorious money-laundering country. Where Dirty Money can be stashed in secret bank accounts. And where Shell Companies are established to clean up Dirty Money so it can begin the conveyer-belted journey of bringing the laundered money into countries like the U.S. & states like McConnell's KENTUCKY. Deripaska made his money by ripping off ordinary Russian citizens after the break up of Soviet Russia. He isn't the only one. It is no coincidence that Wilber Ross was a big-wig vice president of the BANK OF CYPRUS before he became a member of Trump's Cabinet. Here is betting the last $ that a secret bank account with sizable sums of money in it has been established in Mitch McConnell's name in, if not Cyprus, then the Cayman Islands.

  43. Well, if the people who own America would pay their taxes instead of bribing the polititians, there would be mobey to invest in Education and financing for a National Development Bank to invest in those distressed Areas. Why is money from tainted Oligarchs better than from Chinese tycoons?
    I think both are not ideal, but paying fair taxes would at leaat give options, rather than sitting by the dining table like "Spot, the dog" waiting at scraps being droppes by the big powers outside the US.
    Well, i guess it shows the real state America is in!

  44. When you travel in late August on the eastern sea-board you get a sense of melancholy with the approaching end of summer. The seasonal facilities will be soon boarded up as the first cool breezes emerge. The beauty is that there is always another spring to look forward to. The waning of the Trump economy and its impending doom will leave America like a boarded up casino. Prepare yourself and hunker down for this may be a storm like nothing before. I hope you can find a new Obama to hand this mess to fix, like the Republicans did before.

  45. The reason Moscow Mitch hates his new name is that it exposes who he is really working for not America but for himself at the expense of America.
    Right, Moscow Mitch, you don't like everyone knowing who you really are working for.

  46. McConnell gave entrance to Russia into the USA. They paid $200 million dollars to him, so that they can open a business here in Kentucky.
    McConnell doesn't want to pass a bill requesting to block the Russia meddling with our voting process.
    Why is he taking these issues in his own hand and deciding what to do? Who authorized him to take this deal? He is selling us to Russia, little by little. Who does he think he is?
    I believe that McConnell should return that money to Russia and cancel the deal, and pass that bill right away. Otherwise, we are doom for life.
    Also, I heard it on the news, Russia will try to buy 8 more states, like they did with Kentucky.
    Is it fair that these two men, Trump & McConnell, are ruining our country? Breaking it? Our lives? Our freedom?
    You decide! Red or Blue!

  47. Putin owns America now. Stolen blood money now flows to RepubliKKK’con pockets. Moscow Mitch mcKKKonnell is a dirty terrorist.

  48. They would have to bring in workers from another state. Kentucky just sucks off government programs, and no one there will work.

  49. Rachel beautifully took that guy’s practically dewey-eyed Kentucky/Russia love-in and turned it back around to the point of all this. Russia is lining US up and is going to knock us DOWN!

  50. Is that the reason all the Aluminum Strap yards in California closing up. Good way to make sure Russia take over.
