Putin presses US Congress
over Syria, says Kerry lied

MOSCOW--Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday the U.S. Congress had no right to approve the use of force against Syria without a decision from the U.N. Security Council, and that doing so would be an "act of aggression".(Snip)"They lie beautifully, of course. I saw debates in Congress. A congressman asks Mr Kerry: ´Is al Qaeda there?´ He says: ´No, I am telling you responsibly that it is not´," Putin said at a meeting of his human rights council in the Kremlin. "Al Qaeda units are the main military echelon, and they know this," he said, referring to the United States.

A blatant example of the contempt with which Obama, and thereby America, is held by America´s antagonists.

Over four years of Obama, over four years of America´s shame. More than three years to go.

Kerry did lie. And not just once. Obama/Kerry/McCain/Graham are out to damage this country. The last thing we need know is another war.

The Syria debacle has spun so far out of control that I wish Putin was POTUS instead of Obama.
Putin seems to be trying to snuff the real possibility of a worldwide conflagration ,

It´s a sad state of affairs when you don´t trust your own government to tell the truth and would take the word of a former/current/possible adversary.

The whole damn lot of them should be tared/feathered/and keel-hauled.

Just to change pace here a bit, I´ll listen to Putin´s point of view as soon as he can show me where the UN have advanced approval of Russia´s advance into Afghanistan in 1980, or in Hungary in 1956. Countries do what is in their interests to do, regardless of what the UN thinks. My biggest problem with Obama is I have no confidence he acts in the interests of the United States; he acts in his own best interests.

Putin is hardly a stand up guy that we should all now be patting on the back for humiliating a US President regardless of how much we despise him. Obama is not America - we are - and Putin insults us all. Obama started this with his apology tour and vows to stand with the Muslims, went on to deliver Libya and Egypt to radical Islam, and is now pushing for a pointless attack on Syria to cover for his seriously ignorant verbal misstep. A lot of lives are at stake right now and Congress needs to stop treating this like a political gameshow.

I believe this is the time for Congress to do its duty and prevent this lawless administration from throwing more American lives to the Muslim hordes. If chemical weapons are the issue, then by law it is a international problem, not just ours. We have lost enough men, women, assets and treasure to seventh century barbarians hell bent on chaos. Nothing will appease them. They do not want peace. Their only goal is to restore the caliphate. Unless there is a mass conversion to Christianity, they will never stop their war against the west.

I don´t doubt what Russia says anymore. They are telling the truth. Obama is the "won" who has continually deceived the American people. Do you remember the Clinton Admin promising to be the "most ethical administration in history?" I do. And Obama claimed his would be the most "transparent" in history. The truth is that whatever a Democrat says, the truth is the opposite.

Now would be a good time for Putin to release any "secrets" he knows/has stored away for an emergency, about Obama. The only way to stop O is to damage his ego. His "It´s All About Me" attitude needs to end, and in the remaining three years of this god-awful POTUS´ term, force him to make things "All about America - the America of our Founding Fathers" - not about O´s desired America.

There are similarities with Putin´s statement and the letter of Pope Francis to Putin in another thread. Pope Francis knows there is no point in sending a letter to Obama. There is nothing anybody could say that is not likely to make matters worse! It looks as if it is up to Putin to be the adult in this case and not blow up the middle east to save face for Obama. I believe Putin over Obama! Perhaps we should all play along with Obamas lie about not making the Red Line statement at least until somebody in Congress grows up and stops licking his boots. Pretend to save his face and help him avoid tarnishing his peace prize by starting WW III !

Those of us who can remember back to when Kerry was a "winter soldier" also should remember his exaggerations and outright lies during his congressional testimony concerning US military operations during the Vietnam era.

Putin with his considerable experience as an intelligence officer has had Kerry figured out for a long time, you can bet on that.

There is absolutely no doubt that Putin is a Russian nationalist who is always going to take the Russian national interest into consideration first and foremost.

Unfortunately with Obama´s infatuation with the international world of Islam, and Kerry´s past record of lying about the US military during the Vietnam era, you can never be sure about them

Our lap dog, main extreme press is CRITIC STARVED. Steve Pelley, Brian Williams and the lovely Diane Sawyer are paid by the large corporate sponsors that lobbyist-bribe
all of Congress not to criticize any of the legal or illegal crimes being committed in Washington. They should all be digging for the truth of the horrifying gassing deaths.
They are such slaves to lies, that now a foreign dictator can take the stage and offer information to our own truth starved press and stupifyingly dumb TV news actors,
offer details, our indoctrinators won´t touch: some evidence of truth. The irony that Putin´s Marxist words can have more truth to offer than our own Marxist TV and press brainwashers, is the ultimate clue to our supposed leadership´s deluded failures.

Kerry is a proven liar to us.

Putin may be a nationalist and a liar to us also, in furthering his nation.

In this case, I don´t believe anything coming from Kerry´s mouth and I´ll have to examine the evidence to see if I believe Putin.

I guess that means, I believe Putin over Kerry.

Pope Francis sends a letter to President Putin to ask him to try to broker a peace deal for Syria; sounds like the Pope believes Putin is in the right.

Anyway, I was happy that Francis has asked the whole world to Fast and Pray for Syria and the Mid-East this Saturday, September 7.

Would be great if every church, synagogue, mosque, monastery (for the buddists), temples, would be open for people to go into and pray for Syria on Saturday. Worked for Ninevah with Jonah!

This is an academy award, record breaking, all time first in our modern history. Super tough Putin is coming across like John Wayne and calling the corrupt sheriff, the fat judge, the drunken mayor, the slick banker, calling them all liars for protecting the biggest rancher operator who runs the county his way. Something like that. It’s refreshing to hear Putin calling our puppet slobs the liars they are.

Call traced to co-pilot´s phone

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

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

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

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

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

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. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

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

Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004.
