John McCain Banned From Russia, Skips ‘Siberian Spring Break’

There is something deliciously hilarious in the fact that John McCain’s ill-advised choice for his vice presidential running mate’s ability to “see Russia from her house” might be the closest the failed aviator and senior Senator from the backwards desert that is Arizona may get to Russia now that he’s been targeted by Vladimir Putin.

Russia travel bans

Other notables that Russia banned from Russia include House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. Along with Sen. McCain, six others made the list following further sanctions announced today by President Obama on Russian officials and Bank Rossiya which in the words of Obama, “provides material support to these individuals.”

Growing Up In The Fund Management Business: This PM’s First Stock Was A Value Stock

However, when Will Nasgovitz bought his first stock when he was 12, he was already zeroing in on value investing, and he didn't even know it.

The individuals he was referring to include Sergei Ivanov, the presidential chief of staff, Andrei Fursenko, an aide to President Vladimir Putin, Sergei Zheleznyak, a deputy speaker of the Duma, and Sergei Mironov, a leader of A Just Russia party in the Duma among others.

Barack Obama, in a statement from the White House’s South lawn, said the US was moving “to impose additional costs” on Moscow by sanctioning more senior Russian officials and “other individuals with substantial resources and influence who provide material support to the Russian leadership.”

“We are taking these steps in response to what Russia has already done in Crimea,” he said. “Nations do not redraw borders simply because they are larger and more powerful.”

However, Obama stressed that “diplomacy between the United States and Russia continues.”

Twitter to fix Crimea

In response to being hit with a travel ban, “The Speaker is proud to be included on a list of those willing to stand against Putin’s aggression,” Boehner spokesman Michael Steel said in a statement.

McCain, or almost certainly one of his staff,  tweeted  “I’m proud to be sanctioned by Putin – I’ll never cease my efforts & dedication to freedom & independence of #Ukraine, which includes #Crimea”.

Additionally, John Mccain released a statement in response which showed a bit of humor. McCain stated:

“I guess this means my spring break in Siberia is off, my Gazprom stock is lost, and my secret bank account in Moscow is frozen. Nonetheless, I will never cease my efforts on behalf of the freedom, independence, and territorial integrity of Ukraine, including Crimea.”

Russia has yet to respond to the latest remarks from McCain, but do not hold your breath on this one!

  1. “We are taking these steps in response to what Russia has already done in Crimea,” he said. “Nations do not redraw borders simply because they are larger and more powerful.”

    WHAT ABOUT ISRAEL YOU ZIONIST BOOTLICKERS? How about telling your zionist jew masters the same thing? Palestinians do not want to be part of Israel unlike Crimeans which actively want to be part of Russia. Perhaps these zionist stooges in the American government should look in the mirror first. Crimea had voting unlike Israel which was using expulsion and violence to take over. The nerve of these zionist American puppets knows no end.

  2. Russia had communism where zionist jews stole everything and butchered the Romanov royal family. Banning the zionists McCain, Boehner, Reed, and all the other Israeli war mongering boot lickers only makes sense. The only country fighting against Israeli zionist warmongering right now is Russia. Our American politicians are literally borrowing from China and instead of helping us Americans out, they are giving it directly to Israel for illegal wars against Syria and Iran. McCain is a criminal as is the rest of the jewish zionist owned American politicians and senators. By all acounts they should not only be banned by Russia but executed upon entry without a trail, that is how guilty they are. If anyone if following what is happening in Crimea, they will see that IDF terrorists from Israel are there to agitate and cause false flag attacks. Don’t believe anything from the lying zionist owned American news, they lie and only tell what zionist Israeli network heads allow. It is no coincidence that just about every network and communication was taken over by a jewish zionist. Our country of America is currently occupied territory and Netanyahu is trying to dictate foreign policy by telling Obama that we Americans must sacrifice our families in another Middle Eastern war for Israel which will take place in Iran. You watch my fellow Americans, our bootlicking Israeli owned congress criminals will eventually be banned everywhere in the world except their criminal homeland of Israel. What does that tell you? Is the world wrong? Israel is our enemy. Don’t believe the zionist media. Israel wants war with everyone in the Middle East because they thrive on weapons sales and destabilization. The end result is our politicians who wage war for Israel being banned in Russia and soon the world.
