World: A look at China’s patriotic martyrs ~ CHINAaid

For years the Chinese Communist Party justified persecuting unregistered house churches by labeling them as cults that disdained the government. Without direct control over the churches, the government believed they could spread dangerous teaching and eventually revolt against the Communist Party.

But during research for his dissertation, pastor and missionary Timothy Conkling found a completely different story. Of the hundreds of house church members he interviewed, “never once was there talk about overthrowing the government,” even if they had issues with certain aspects of the government’s policy. Led by a theology of martyrdom, house churches view persecution as a privilege, and thus do not respond violently against their oppressors.

Must Watch & Tom's Take: "CrossTalk: Dangerously Spinning Russia Story - YouTube"

Nemtsov was not being talked about much at all in Russia or outside Russia when he was murdered. His popularity ratings were between 1 and 5%. His Party has no seats in Russia. The Communists are Putin's main opposition, and they aren't strong versus Putin's 80% popularity-rating by Russians in Russia. The Western mainstream media is up to nothing but false propaganda concerning this whole affair. The American people are being duped, again! Don't fall for it.

The neocons/Zionists are completely behind this, just the way they were concerning lying the US into the war in Iraq, which had nothing to do with 9/11 and didn't have weapons of mass destruction.

It doesn't matter which Party is in the White House or is controlling the Congress (House and/or Senate), the Republicans lie and the Democrats lie.

This is an excellent segment of CrossTalk on RT (Russia Today). It reinforces my completely independent post of yesterday (I wrote it before reading anyone else's theories on the crime): "Putin is Too Smart to Have Wanted Nemtsov Murdered?"

On the back of Secretary of State John Kerry’s pleading for more funding to counter news outlets such as RT and the west’s reaction to the awful murder of an opposition figure on the streets of Moscow, it would appear those looking for more tensions with Russia are winning the day. CrossTalking with Gilbert Doctorow, Neil Clark, and Ray McGovern.

What crow the US media in particular will eat if the Russians catch the people who murdered Nemtsov: poetic justice.

Putin is Too Smart to Have Wanted Nemtsov Murdered?

Video description:03011501

Thousands of opposition supporters are expected to march through Moscow to the bridge where Kremlin-critic Boris Nemtsov was shot dead overnight on Friday.

Nemtsov had planned to join the rally to protest against Putin's economic policies and the conflict in east Ukraine when he was gunned down not far from the Kremlin. In the wake of his killing, the organisers cancelled the march changing its focus to pay tribute to the politician....

I think Putin is too smart to have ordered, or wanted, him killed. His death has only drawn attention to anti-Putinism, which Putin would rather not have had, especially not right now while he's dealing with Merkel concerning Ukraine.

The "West" has been making out like Boris Nemtsov was saintly, but he ran in very un-saintly, hyper-privatization circles under Yeltsin's regime propped up by those who rushed in to grab the spoils of a backstabbed Russia (backstabbed by the Reaganites and Bushites and more specifically, US neocon/Zionist-bankster types).

Vladimir Putin would have had no reason to suddenly have Boris Nemtsov murdered. Putin's popularity is still quite high in Russia. Also, if the object had been simply to eliminate Nemtsov, wouldn't any intelligence/clever person have made it appear to be an accident or some other less obvious thing, such as an illness? If the object was to put the fear into other anti-Putin types, would that have been worth the price of such negative international news where Vladimir Putin now has to pull out all the stops to catch the killers so he, Putin, won't be suspect in Angela Merkel's eyes?

If people are to be suspected, it would be foolish to rule out foreign-paid assassins.

Of course, this post only scratches the surface of possibilities.
