Fiction weekend. Gerontological records of the "shifting power" of the US Senate

89
Your attention is provided with a list of US senators who personify not only the triumph of US democracy, but also the turnover of power. We are talking about senators, whose age is deeply retirement, but this does not prevent some of them from remaining in the senatorial seat for 20-40 (!) Years. The 25 members of the US Senate are aged 70 years old, of which seven are older than 80 years.


Jeff Sessions (from Alabama) - 71 year, Jim Rish (from Idaho) - 74 year, Richard Shelby (from Alabama) - 83 year, John McCain (from Arizona) - 82 year (in the senator's chair - 31 year), Mike Enzi (from Wyoming) - 73 of the year, Bernie Sanders (from Vermont) - 76 years, Patrick Leahy (from Vermont) - 77 years, Maisie Hirono (from the state of Hawaii) - 70 years, Tom Carper (from Delaware) - 71 year, David Purdue (from Georgia) - 69 years (he is the cousin of the former governor of Georgia), John Isaacson (from Georgia) - 73, John Manchin (from West Virginia) - 70 years, Dick Durbin (from Illinois) - 73 year, Dianne Feinstein (from California) - 84 of the year (in senators - 26 years), Pat Roberts (from Kansas) - 81 year (in senators 21 year), Mitch McConnel (from Kentucky) - 76 years (in senators - 33 year ), Rich Blumenthal (from Connecticut) - 72 of the year, Elizabeth Warren (from Massachusetts) - 69 years, Ted Cochrane (from Mississippi) - 80 years (in senators - 39 (!) Years), Angus King (from Man) - XNUM , Ben Cardin (from Maryland) - 74, Jim Inhof (from Oklahoma) - 74, Jean Shahin (from New Hampshire) - 83, Ron Wyden (from Oregon) - 71 years (in senators - 70) Jack Reed (from Rhode I Lenda) - 22 years (senators - 69 year), Lamar Alexander (from Tennessee) - 21 years, Bill Nelson (from Florida) - 77 years, Orrin Hatch (from Utah) - 75 year.

Fiction weekend. Gerontological records of the "shifting power" of the US Senate


A number of US senators are hereditary politicians. For example, talking about Senator Kennedy and Merkauski. Some senators, including Michael Lee from Utah, moved from the American religious organizations to the current seat. That same Lee was a Mormon missionary in Texas for several years. This means that the church in the USA is certainly separated from the state ...

And why we, in Russia, are surprised that the US Senate is so hostile towards the Russian Federation. In fact, the answer is obvious. In the US Senate, politicians who drank champagne or whiskey for the collapse of the USSR "entrenched themselves". And then suddenly Russia, which was “buried” in 90, under Yeltsin’s dances, began not only to give a voice, but to interfere with the United States, which considers itself to be winners, in carrying out their geopolitical intrigues. The "winners" were furious. Even if many hearts play tricks on them, they clearly do not want to leave the “throne”, having lost the won “victory” over the geopolitical adversary from their hands.

          Not exactly so ...
          Yes, and in general: Politburo of the CPSU Central Committee (Political Bureau of the CPSU Central Committee) - party governing bodyelected by the plenum of the Central Committee of the party to guide the work of the Central Committee between plenums; existed in 1917 – 1991. with a break in 1952 – 1966, when similar functions were performed by the Presidium of the CPSU Central Committee.


          The Communist Party could not control economic or political processes: for this there was a Council of Ministers.

              If you are really interested, then Leonid Ilyich Brezhnev became a member of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union 29 on June 1957 of the year, and dropped out of 10 on November of 1982 of the year due to the death.

                  The Deputies never (in my life, at least) had real power. Like party congresses, however.
                  The power was very, ahem, right ... centralized, I would say ... and unconditionally separated from the Shirnarmass ("people"), although it was called (by habit, obviously), "popular" request

              The district and city committees did not lead, but controlled the work of organizations. When appointing heads of a certain level to a post, the candidacy must be agreed with the district committee, even if the candidate is non-partisan. After the appointment, the district committee was responsible for this employee, since having approved the appointment, the district committee vouched for him. Therefore, any curvature in the client’s work (bribes, abuse, drunkenness, etc.) provoked a reaction from the district committee (what kind of person are you, disgrace the district committee?). Such a system worked. Today there is no system. And officials like it!

        Here in their information propaganda they had this argument. For some reason, our data were not given? Or maybe it was already the time when ours dreamed of creating the irremovability of power, promoting our children, while maintaining privileges. Under Stalin, rotations constantly took place.
        So in this century, constantly about the fact that Putin is already very long.

    So in general, they are elected to senators in the USA, not appointed. Two senators from each state, elections are held.
    But in the Russian Federation they are appointed to the Federation Council. Therefore, there are all sorts of Karimov, Narusov, etc.

        All questions are for American voters. But the fact remains: in the United States, senators are elected by the population, not appointed.
        By the way, the state sheriffs (an analogue of the chief of the Internal Affairs Directorate for a subject in the Russian Federation) are also elected, but not appointed, like ours.
        I’m writing not because I idolize the United States (otherwise I just immediately accuse VO of collaborating with the State Department), it seems reasonable to me.

          I'm afraid to be inaccurate, but in my opinion the sheriff is the local police, municipal. Our nearest analogue is a district policeman. And the federal police are about the same as ours.

        You are mistaken. We have been waging a war with the Anglo-Saxons (namely a war) for more than 300 years. And more than one generation has changed, and the end of this war cannot be seen and will not be seen.
        We are talking about the confrontation of two completely opposite civilizations, cultures and views on the world order.
        Here we are either them, or they are us. The concept of the Russian world, as well as the Anglo-Saxon union, are not as vague and illusory as many believe. And in this context, we will never succeed in speaking meaningfully with them.

    "... And why we, in Russia, are surprised that the US Senate is so hostile towards the Russian Federation. In fact, the answer is obvious. In the US Senate, "entrenched" politicians who drank champagne or whiskey for the collapse of the USSR ... "

    In the American Senate, first of all, Masons dug in, just like in the Supreme Court. Without participation in Freemasonry, the path to the upper floors of the Amerz authorities was completely ordered. All presidents of America, except Kennedy, were Freemasons.
    America was essentially created by Freemasons, i.e. anti-Christians, which largely explains her attitude towards Russia in the past, present and near future.

    ... a list of US senators who personify not only the triumph of US democracy, but also the turnover of power. We are talking about senators, whose age is deeply retirement, but this does not prevent some of them from remaining in the senatorial seat for 20-40 (!) Years. The 25 members of the US Senate are aged 70 years old, of which seven are older than 80 years.
    A number of US senators are hereditary politicians ....

    I see that in the article the accents are arranged in such a way that readers, who are usually not familiar with the realities of the electoral system there, should get the impression that the senators got a life-long sinekura there and die already in their workplace, as in times of memory, members Politburo of the CPSU. In fact, senators are elected quite democratically (once senators were elected by members of state legislatures, but from 1913 onwards, already 105 (!) Years, after the entry into force of the 17 amendment to the US Constitution, the election of senators became direct). 1 times in 6 years, state residents elect two senators who will represent them in the Senate. So the senators are exactly 100 people there. Elections are widely reported in the press, journalists are monitored closely for candidates, and all kinds of “fighters for the quality of power” view candidates almost under a microscope. "Voters will not justify the trust" - they will no longer elect. Point. Senators, these are serious and well-known politicians. Their activities are highly occupied by the population of the country. But they are people too. Cases of "punctures" in their activities serve as a pretext for scandals, court proceedings, etc., and again, cause a keen interest among the population. Not for nothing on the subject of senators written hundreds of books, films were shot, etc.
    The expression "hereditary politician" does not mean the transfer of office, authority and the chair from dad to cute son. This is not analogous to the transfer of power from Hafez Asad to Bashar Assad, along with 97% nationwide support in the alleged elections, issued for unconditional triumph and love.
    However, in terms of high-quality heated "love" for everything American, the article has reached its goal. Respect to the author.

Yes, it’s so frisky that in some ways it even got ahead of the USA. And of course, the main irritant - Vladimir Vladimirovich, a skilled and strong-willed leader, does not match these gerontos.

    The US Senate is like our Federation Council.
    The average life expectancy in Russia is approximately (2014 WHO data) = 70,5 years, USA = 79,3
    By age, senators in the Federation Council (list of senators alphabetically on the website of the Federation Council, not all viewed):
    Alekseev Evgeny Georgievich 1947 = 71 years
    Beketov Vladimir Andreevich 1949 = 69 years
    Biryukov Yuri Stanislavovich 1948 = 70 years
    Vorobyov Yuri Leonidovich 1948 = 70 years
    Goryacheva Svetlana Petrovna 1947 = 71 years
    Dolgikh Vladimir Ivanovich 1924 = 94 years

    Rossel Eduard Ergartovich 1937 = 81 years
    Head of the Federation Council Matvienko, Valentina Ivanovna 1949 = 69 years
