After North Korea Summit, Vlad Putin Takes Page Out of Kim’s Despotic Playbook

These certainly aren’t the two guys that you want brainstorming with one another on a regular basis.

Just days ago, and alarming meeting was taking place that you may have just barely heard about in the mainstream media.

You see, while the infotainment industry was busy waxing poetic hysterical about the entire Mueller report, Attorney General Bill Barr’s interpretation of it, or any other myriad of ways to damage the credibility of the Trump presidency, the man likely responsible for that entire RussiaGate situation was out there making friends with folks that we really don’t want him to make friends with.

I’m speaking of course about Kim Jong Un and the despotic regime of North Korea.

The two dictators met recently to discuss whatever it is that such men would discuss, and then, wouldn’t you know it, Vladimir Putin heads back to Moscow with some new ideas for ways in which to isolate and control his people.

President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday signed into law a “sovereign internet” bill which will allow Russian authorities to isolate the country’s internet, a move decried by rights groups.

Russian lawmakers insist the new law is necessary to ensure the security of Russia’s online networks but critics say the vaguely worded bill gives new censorship powers to government monitors.

The text of the law was published Wednesday but it will not come into effect until November.

The measures include creating technology to monitor internet routing and to steer Russian internet traffic away from foreign servers, ostensibly to prevent a foreign country from shutting it down.

In North Korea, the internet is fully controlled by the government, with those choosing to circumvent these controls finding the task both impossible and punishable by years in a concentration camp.
