Obama cancels meeting with
Putin amid Snowden tensions

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/7/2013 9:28:50 AM

In a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia´s harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow´s stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.

Comments:
0bama shows he has a spine of steel. This will really disturb Putin. s/o Did Jarrett tell him to do that?

Putin thanks you for his chuckle of the day, Mr. President. Jeez, even failure Jimmie Carter knew that you´d have to cancel something like our Olympics participation to get the Russians´ attention.

Prissydent Obama stamped his little feet aboard AF1 and told Valerie Jarrett that "I won´l let that terrible Putin treat lesbian and gay, not to mention transgender and bisexual people that way. No I won´t. I didn´t spend $25 million flying out to do the Leno show so that Putin could mock us. I mean them. Cancel that meeting with Vladimir. But tell him I can still do lunch with his cute interpreter, you know, that handsome dude from Minsk."

From PJ Media, April 3, 2008,

Obama says that he will talk to parties hostile to the U.S. because he does not think it is a reward to talk to your enemies. It’s worth noting that a man who claims that his biological identity and upbringing give him unique insight into the rest of humanity has here adopted the default position of the U.S. policy-making establishment, or that segment of it tacking against the Bush administration.

Nixon went the China when they weren´t very nice, so much for comparing him to the lying one, and Reagan walked out of nuke talks but at least he went even knowing it may not look good. For actual leaders the time to talk is when there are issues, but people like Obama can´t because they don´t want to actually do anything productive, symbols is all he is or ever will be. He is the symbol of failure.

In 2009, SoS Hilarious Clinton presented the Russians with the infamous "Reset" button. She fawningly asked, "We worked hard to get the right Russian word. Do you think we got it?" The word was "Peregruzka" in Russian. The problem was, "peregruzka" doesn´t mean reset. It means overcharged, or overloaded.

Thanks to the dim bulbs we had/have fronting American foreign policy, our relationship with Russia (notwithstanding Obama´s open mic capitulation to Putin) has become even more peregruzka.

Snowden is irrelevant. Obama responding to his LBGT base outrage that Russia wants to protect its children from homo propaganda IS relevant.

And, of course, Russia backing the strong horse, Assad ("a reformer," according to the aforementioned boob, Clinton) while our ´leaders´ (Jarrett, Abedin, Obama) would rather back the al Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood rebels is also relevant.

Isn´t it embarrassing to be an American these days?

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Obama to meet with healthcare leaders

President Obama is scheduled to meet with health insurance executives and state insurance commissioners on Thursday, just two days after ObamaCare´s special enrollment period officially closed. The meetings, which will include at least one photo-op, are a chance for the White House to telegraph unity with health insurance companies and state regulators involved with the rollout of the healthcare law. The announcement of new enrollment figures was also expected separately on Thursday. It is possible Obama could reveal the numbers before one of the two meetings. Total exchange enrollment is likely to have risen since last week, when Health and Human Services Secretary

Breckenridge, Colo. - A contentious eminent domain case in which a local government sought to take private backcountry land for open space has been settled, with the landowners agreeing to a $115,000 sale. "To me, what just came out of it is, you can´t win, you can´t fight the government," landowner Ceil Barrie said Wednesday. She and her husband, Andy, owned ten acres of land perched at 11,000 feet elevation in Breckenridge. The property, with breathtaking views, was a private patch of land surrounded by White River National Forest. An old, uninhabited day-use cabin, an outhouse and a shuttered gold

They want no debate. In a Tuesday piece for Salon, Heather Digby Parton, who blogs at her own site under the name Digby, asserted that the conservative claim of liberal media bias is "absurd"

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast.
