Putin keeps John Kerry waiting for
THREE HOURS during his visit to
Russia for meetings over Syria
as relationship between the U.S.
and Russia remains frosty

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 5/8/2013 2:10:01 AM

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was looking to strengthen ties with Russia as he tries to put an end to the dictatorial regime of Bashar al-Assad in Syria, but instead he was met with the coldest of receptions. Russian President Vladimir Putin kept Kerry waiting three hours before their meeting at the Kremlin on Tuesday and continuously fiddled with his pen as the top American diplomat spoke about the ongoing crisis in Syria. Kerry’s visit to Moscow comes as he seeks Russian help in ending Syria´s civil, telling President Putin that common interest in a stable Middle East

Comments:
Kerry is trying "to put an end to the dictatorial regime of Bashar al-Assad in Syria"???

No wonder Putin kept him waiting for three hours.

Kerry--can you not take a hint?

I think Putin is sick of Obama supporting the Islamic radicals taking over countries and after throwing out their leaders so the muslim brotherhood can move in. I think Assad is better than the alternative.

Why should a President meet with the Fraudulent SOS of a fraudulent POTUS?
Gigolo John may have married the widow of the murdered? Republican Senator Heinz and proceeded to use his millions to fund progressive causes that the Senator would have opposed- but he cannot use them to buy respect.
He is still a traitor.
Thank God for the Swift Boat Vets.
Putin is honoring them and their exposé of Gigolo John.
When we have an American POTUS and SOS -then we may be able to have a genuine relationship with Russia.
Obama has inflamed the ME to transfer power to AG and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Assad is preferable to Obamas demonic minions.

First, Barry the Weak appoints Hillary the Wack, then Jon the Weak, after telling all and sundry how rotten the greatest nation the earth has ever seen "really" is [as often as he can get them to listen to him].

Tyrants and butchers everywhere do handsprings over Phony 44. He remains far more clueless than Clouseau on his worst day. China in particular sees "The Central Kingdom" status returning far far sooner than they ever hoped [as Hollywood edits and films a special "one from column A..." edition of "Ironman 3" so China´s "censors" allow it into the world´s #2 film market -- where it had the best first-week ever in the China market; how many knew that?].

American families will lose fathers, brothers, sons, daughters because of Obama. Unknowable numbers of Americans will be maimed because of Obama. The lives of their families and friends will be devastated in ways only those who have been so afflicted can understand because of Obama.

So much more could be said. For now, let´s just say Obama et. al. must be stopped.

What a set back for Mr. Don´t You Know who I am? They probably remember you from the Paris peace talks. How can anyone trust a person who simultaneously speaks from both sides of his mouth, delivering different messages.

Here we have the "chief gigolo at large" representing the US to the rest of the world, the Russians must be just doubling over with laughter.

I am waiting with baited breath for the Benghazi hearings tomorrow.

No, John-boy you should not go down alone Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta and the Obama administration with you.

Kept Jean Kerry waiting??? What happened, I thought Hillary reset our relationship with the Russians.

Seriously, the Russians, the Chinese, the Iranians, the NorKs, the Syrians know what kind of clowns are currently in power in the U.S. and treating us accordingly. Just today, Barry made a public statement to the affect, that when I say something, I really mean it. Why don´t you stomp your feet for emphasis, Barry? Pathetic. Unless we can get more folks to see the light and the good people off the couch and vote, you can expect more of this international treatment of LoFo Nation.

You would never see Putin in a million years jet around the world blaming his own country for this or that. He´s as big a nationalist as you can find.So even if he doesn´t agree with you,he can respect you when you stand up for your country. Both Obama and Kerry have a history of throwing their own country under the bus,which can be taken as a lack of trustworthiness..

My guess is Obama wants Putin to bail him out on Syria and Putin says ,you started all this,it´s your problem.

This snub would embarrass most people but not Kerry.He´ll claim he set his watch to prime meridian time and was 3 hours ahead of Putin´s watch.

Didn´t Kerry have anything more pressing to do than sit around waiting (and not taking the hint)? Surely his diplomatic skills would have enabled him to make a plausible excuse to leave.

I´d just like to know what the upshot of their eventual meeting was.

"I´ll be a little more flexible, you know, after my reelection." Or something like that.

I guess obama has not been fully cooperative with the Russians as he promised and finds treason against the US a little harder to accomplish than he thought. On the world stage, the inept kenyan is a wrecking ball and so are his stooges in State.

This is all very confusing. Why would President Putin, the proud grandson of Vladimir Lenin´s personal cook, treat an "esteemed" comrade with such disrespect? After all, America´s French speaking 68th Secretary of State has been "honored" with his very own special picture/exhibit in the Communist War Remnants Museum, located in downtown Ho Chi Minh City!

I´m not sure why we´re all so giddy that J´Effin got stood on his head for 3 hours by a man who´d like to see us destroyed, but I´m not happy-dancing over it.

I despise J´Effin as much as anybody here - I think he ought to still be in Leavenworth - but I take no joy in learning that the leader of the former Evil Empire, who´d like to rebuild that Empire, so minimizes our Secretary of State. Perhaps Putin was busy planning our demise with his new friend, China, while J´Effin sat tapping his toe.

I´d have to echo #3 here..... This is not an occasion for glee.

My reaction is a hybrid of schadenfreude and 3/36´s. It is not a good thing that the US´s official representative is treated with such disrespect by anyone, let alone the head of the nation with the largest nuclear arsenal on earth. On the other hand, the sooner the American people wake up to the fact that our country is now held in such low esteem (and lack of fear), the sooner the problem can be addressed. That need not wait until the next election; a vigilant press publicizing the lack of respect might well force (or shame) Obama into doing something effective about it. But the fact that this story is carried in the British press, and not our own, tells us everything we need to know about the vigilance of our press. God help the US; Obama certainly is not.

It IS a reason for glee. Not because a SecState was left cooling his heels, but because this particular odious SecState was. He deserves all of the scorn and derision that anyone can heap on him. And his boss deserves it too.

Perhaps Putin is more in sync with Netanyahu than anyone thought.

Putin probably saw the faces of Easter Island so why show he view another one.
I should feel bad that a representative of the United States is treated this way but I´m don´t feel that way with this regime. I want them to have failures and misery and as an American I have never felt this. I didn´t wish this on Jimmy Carter.
Somehow this regime blunders at every turn because leadership is not what they know. I hate all of Washington at this point in my life.
Syria is better off with Assad it´s their civil war and the option of the Muslim Brotherhood is worse. I felt the same way about Libya and Ghadaffi.

Right. Putin knows how to play the game, Kerry, not so much.

To "represent" the U.S. and allow this insult is so Obama. If I were Kerry I would have waited, met Putin, and then told him that, unfortunately, had to run... see ya next time, losah!

As much as I like Obama and his minion being publicly horsewhipped, the corrupt Putin needs to be put in his place.

Perhaps Putin doesn´t know who Jon Effing Cary is, or maybe he doesn´t even care. On the other hand could it be he was expecting someone important like Dennis Rodman, and is mad because he went to North Korea first.

It´s been rough on the glorious Russian leader over the past four years having to talk to the 200 pounder wearing the blue dress with the smelly hair. It´s tough enough dealing with peasants in his own country without those self important flakes from other countries.

Jon Francoise Carry is such an embarrassing pathetic putz. He doesn´t have a clue about much of anything except where to park his expensive new yacht to avoid taxes.

Putin is so much smarter and tougher than our fake and phony poseur of a POTUS and our secretary of state who´s such a sissy butt boy.

Putin is a tough realist who at least sticks up for his country unlike our so called President.

I wouldn´t want to meet with Kerry, either. The guy looks like a headache in waiting.

I´m sure Jon Boy exclaimed haughtily "Doesn´t he know who I am?", as he is wont to say to his constituents.

Wasn´t his boss held up on the tarmac for three hours in Russia - back when he was a junior senator & traveling with Durbin? Something about his papers not being in order?

I think Vlad knows more about these two than we citizens do.

Harry Reid calls dissident Nevada ranchers
´domestic terrorists´ following show of
force against the federal government
Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/19/2014 9:29:17 AM     Post Reply
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

European Tycoon Accuses Google of

One of Europe´s most powerful media tycoons has accused Google of seeking to create a digital ´superstate´ outside the control of national regulators and privacy laws. Mathias Döpfner, head of the giant German multi-media company Axel Springer, says Wir haben Angst vor Google: "We are afraid of Google." [Snip] Writing an open letter to Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google, in the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Döpfner said: "Google not only knows where we are going in our cars, but also what we do while we’re driving. Forget Big Brother – Google is better!" He expressed worries about Google´s dominance

One of US president Barack Obama´s leading campaign strategists has been recruited by Labour to play a key role in Ed Miliband´s bid for Downing Street in next year´s general election. David Axelrod, who is credited with masterminding Mr Obama´s presidential victories in 2008 and 2012, will join Labour´s general election campaign team as a senior strategic adviser, the party announced. His appointment was been hailed by Labour as a major coup, and ´´seriously bad news for the Conservatives´´, at a time when Mr Miliband has been under fire from sections of his own party for his campaign tactics.

I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist. The university´s decision to pull the

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

Remember Lovebug? This was the computer virus that swept through a young and fresh-faced internet in May 2000. Back then we were told it would do to cyberspace what the Black Death had done to Europe in the 14th century. We all got funny emails with “ILOVEYOU” attachments and when we tried to open them our computers exploded. Or rather they didn’t, though you wouldn’t have known that from the hysteria. Then along came MyDoom, Netsky, Witty and Melissa and, now, the deliciously named Heartbleed bug, which the US security expert Bruce Schneier has described as “catastrophic” and which has

Air pollution in China and other Asian countries is causing storms in North America to become stronger and changing weather patterns across the Northern Hemisphere, a new Nasa study has claimed. [Snip] The effect was most pronounced during the winter, the team said.

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country. Russia´s military spending relative to GDP is now

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties. Russia said it was ´deeply concerned´ over reports of casualties in the region today. It comes

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons.
