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.

Kerry is chasing around in the wake of Hillary´s 4 year apology world tour trying not to notice how she set back foreign relations 20 years. In the meantime Obama summons the limos. He can´t miss his tee time.

"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.

New research shows America´s middle class

While America’s wealthiest citizens continue to outpace their global peers, the country’s middle class has lost its long held distinction of being the most affluent in the world according to new research. Although economic growth in the United States continues to be as strong as in many other countries--or stronger--only a small percentage of American households are fully benefiting from it, according to the LIS analysis. Based on surveys conducted over the past 35 years, income across the lower--and middle-income tiers of American society has plateaued over that time, while citizens in other advanced countries have received considerably larger rises.

Vice President Joe Biden warned on Tuesday ´it´s time for Russia to stop talking and start acting´ to reduce tension in Ukraine. Standing alongside acting Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk in Kiev, Ukraine, Biden called on Moscow to encourage masked, pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine to vacate illegally occupied government buildings and checkpoints, accept amnesty and ´address their grievances politically.´ ´We have been clear that more proactive behavior by Russia will lead to more costs and greater isolation,´ the Vice President said. Biden said Russia needs to act ´without delay,´ adding, ´We will not allow this to become an open-ended

As he met Ukrainian leaders in Kiev, Mr Biden called on Russia to "stop talking and start acting" to defuse the Ukraine crisis. The US and the West accuse Russia of using undercover military to back separatists in eastern Ukraine, where public buildings are occupied in at least

Some will seize on this as proof that Americans are credulous and anti-scientific, but I´d draw the opposite conclusion. The survey--insofar as it can be taken seriously: only just over 1000 people were consulted--suggests how remarkably resilient Americans are in the face of relentless environmental brainwashing. [Snip] But according to this survey, only 33 percent are buying it--while another 37 percent remain thoroughly unconvinced. In the survey, respondents were asked how confident they were in a range of scientific statements. The ones in which they had fullest confidence were: Smoking causes cancer--82 percent extremely/very confident. Inside our cells there is a

Sean Parker, the counter-culture pioneer who founded Napster and made a fortune from Facebook, has been quietly meeting politicians and strategists in Washington DC with a view to donating cash to… the Republican party. [Snip] I think it comes down to what one entrepreneur said to me when Brendan Eich was pushed out of Mozilla: "You can offend the liberals in Silicon Valley, or the libertarians, but you can´t offend both, because everyone is one or the other". That´s the key--there´s a rich vein of libertarianism running through the Silicon Valley tech community that´s infuriated by the increasingly statist Democrats.

Thousands die of thirst

Telegraph [UK], by Padraic Flanagan, Laura Donnelly    Original Article

At least 1,000 hospital patients are dying needlessly each month from dehydration and poor care by doctors and nurses, according to an NHS study. The deaths from acute kidney injury could be prevented by simple steps such as nurses ensuring patients have enough to drink and doctors reviewing their medication, the researchers say. Between 15,000 and 40,000 patients die annually because hospital staff fail to diagnose the treatable kidney problem, a figure that dwarfs the death toll from superbugs like MRSA. The report comes less than a year after the NHS watchdog NICE was forced to issue guidelines on giving patients water

The term "Dark Net" is shorthand to describe the hidden and encrypted part of the internet beyond the reach of normal browsers, accessible only using the anonymous browser Tor. It´s protected by a clever traffic encryption system which makes it very difficult to locate the servers which host sites--called Tor Hidden Services--and the IP addresses of the people the visit them. Tor used to stand for The Onion Router, and so some call this world "Onionland". Anonymity and freedom rule Onionland, not censorship. Even through Tor was originally a US government research project to help protect the anonymity of dissidents

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius maneuvered one of America´s richest liberal philanthropies into contributing $13 million to Enroll America, a group founded by a former Obama White House staffer to drive up insurance enrollment numbers under the Affordable Care Act. A report issued Monday by the Government Accountability Office shows what Republican members of Congress have anticipated learning since 2013: that Sebelius called a total of five organizations a year ago and urged them to help Enroll America reach its goals.

A pregnant journalist is recovering in hospital today after a pro-Kremlin political leader in Russia told two male aides to ´violently rape´ her at a press conference. Nationalist Vladimir Zhironovsky launched his extraordinary tirade after reporter Stella Dubovitskaya asked him an innocuous question about sanctions against Ukraine. The founder of the far right Liberal Democratic Party began shouting wildly, before suddenly manhandling two young male aides towards the pregnant mother-of-one. He then shouted to them: ´When I say, you run to her and violently rape her.´ The parliamentary reporter, who is six months pregnant, is now being treated in hospital

A huge fire in Gibraltar, caused by a fuel tank explosion, shut down many online betting services and disrupted gamblers during a busy day of sport. Residences near the blaze were evactuated following the fire, which broke out at around 1pm local time. The explosion occurred at Gibraltar´s main power station and the fire shut down much of the area´s electricity. Thousands of residents and tourists were left without power while firefighters battled the blaze. The fire was eventually brought under control at around 4.30pm local time. A Gibraltar Government spokesman said: "The fire is under control and there are no casualties

Immortalised in Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s poem about the “valley of death”, the Charge of the Light Brigade is remembered as one of the most glorious defeats in British history. The documents overturn much of the established wisdom of the battle and provide clues as to how the calamitous attack, during the Battle of Balaclava, in the Crimean War, came to be accidentally launched. [Snip] The charge saw the light cavalry mount an assault into a valley flanked, on three sides, by Russians. Lord Raglan, overall commander of the British forces, had intended to send the Light Brigade to pursue and

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said.

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief
