“Maria Butina, Suspected Secret Agent, Used Sex in Covert Plan, Prosecutors Say” (nytimes) describes how a 29-year-old student pilot in a Piper Warrior (see the video on the page at 2:11) managed to subvert the $4.4 trillion/year Federal government:
Apparently hoping for a work visa that would grant her a longer stay, she offered one American sex in exchange for a job. She moved in with a Republican political operative nearly twice her age, describing him as her boyfriend. But she privately expressed “disdain” for him and had him do her homework, prosecutors said.
In other words, a young person was having sex with an older person who had something to offer in terms of career advancement.
When this happens between two Americans, the young person is described as a helpless victim, suffering from what might be a year of forced sexual encounters, utterly trapped and with no thought of what was being obtained in exchange. When the young person is Russian, however, the same newspaper describes the young person as a cunning aggressor, in control of the situation.
Also in anti-Russian hysteria:
- “NRA ADMITS ACCEPTING MONEY FROM 23 RUSSIA-LINKED DONORS” (Newsweek), in which we learn that it is front-page news for Americans that, over the past 3 years, $2,500 was received, mostly in subscription or membership fees, from 23 people ($100 each!) who “may include U.S. citizens living in Russia.”
