Putin Enjoying Siberian Vacation: Photo Essay

The area where Russian president Vladimir Putin is vacationing is similar in appearance to the American state of Maine. Putin seems to be relaxed in the photos that the Russians have released. However, I’m sure the American press will find a way to spin Putin’s vacation as involving a plot to destroy American democracy by stealing another election. LOL.

Limbaugh: CNN Has Become A Laughing Stock And Doesn’t Know It

El Rushbo may not be alt-right but he does understand a goodly number of political currents swirling around in America. On Wednesday he called out CNN as a laughingstock, after the network threatened to reveal personal information about the person who created the now infamous video of Trump body slamming CNN.

On Thursday, President Duda of Poland Tweeted out a “fake news” Tweet. On Friday, at the G20 meeting, President Putin of Russia mocked the press too.

Real Clear Politics

Rush Limbaugh talks CNN on the Thursday edition of his nationally-syndicated radio show:

RUSH LIMBAUGH: And so today Jim Acosta accused Trump of engaging in fake news. The definition of fake news at CNN is if Trump takes a question from a conservative reporter, a friendly reporter. That is fake news. Acosta actually tweeted, “Isn’t it a fake news conference to take a question from a reporter who is essentially an ally of the White House.”

Now, in order to understand what comes next, you have to understand who Acosta is. He’s like everybody else in Washington. These are pseudointellectuals. You must understand the way they see themselves. They see themselves as better, smarter, more important, more relevant, more necessary, just generally better people than all the rest of us. They have no humility whatsoever. They do not know what they don’t know.

They have no capability of humility. They have no ability to admit that there are things that they don’t know. As such they are ripe to be made fools of. And this Acosta guy is basically putting his own bag of manure in front of himself and stepping in it every day. Trump is just assisting a little bit, but he’s not even collecting the manure. CNN’s doing that. Trump may be furnishing the bag, but these people are putting it in front of themselves and then stepping in it.

So Acosta tweets, “Isn’t it a fake news conference to take a question from a reporter who is essentially an ally of the White House?” Donald Trump Jr. responds. “So by that logic, Little Jim, every news conference for the last eight years with Obama was fake news. You would know.” But it isn’t just Donald Trump Jr. Ari Fleischer: “Jim, do you care to guess how many questions I took from reporters who went on to join the Obama White House?” Ari Fleischer was Bush’s first press secretary.

Here’s Acosta saying these conservative reporters, you know, they’re Trump’s allies, they’re supporters of Trump, these conservative people. That means it’s fake news. And Ari Fleischer is pointing out, you know, Jim, how many of your buddies who are in the press corps during the Bush administration then went on to join the actual Obama administration?

The tweets, the memes, the gifs making fun of CNN with Trump savaging them, they’re getting too many to watch, too many to count. CNN has become a laughingstock and doesn’t know it. That’s what’s funny about it. They don’t know it. They’re aware of all of this, but because they have no humility and because they have no sense of their true place in the universe, they are incapable of actually having this register in terms of its reality.

So Trump’s press conference is in Poland — oh, by the way, let me tell you about this. There’s another thing about Poland. The Drive-By Media today, a couple different places, reported that Trump is so unpopular in Poland. This is a flat-out lie. I mean, this is just total flat-out fake news. They reported Trump as so unpopular in Poland that they had to bus in the few supporters in the country they could find that would cheer Trump.

That’s not at all what happened.

Trump is so popular the Polish government had to organize the numbers of people and they sponsored bus trips to facilitate traffic management and logistics and all that. There were so many people that wanted to see Trump that they found a way to bus them in and keep it somewhat organized.

Kim Dotcom trolls Obama with badass photo of Putin standing in rain

Tech bad boy Kim Dotcom keeps himself in the news with his Tweets.

This time he decided to rain on Obama’s parade by doing one of those Putin vs. Obama comparisons that were popular for the last eight years.

This isn’t much of a story, but rather a distraction from the important issues facing us. Still, it’s nice to be reminded of why we’re better off without Obama in the White House.

RT

Kim Dotcom trolled former US President Barack Obama with a photo of Russian leader Vladimir Putin standing in the pouring rain without an umbrella in sight.

The internet entrepreneur, wanted by the US over the now-defunct file-sharing website, Megaupload, compared the photo to one of Obama standing under an umbrella held for him by a US Marine.

The Obama photo, taken in 2013 during a press conference with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, sparked controversy at the time as some observers pointed out it was against regulations for male marines to hold umbrellas.

Dotcom, a vocal critic of Obama, took the opportunity to highlight again the moment after a photo of Putin braving the rain during a wreath-laying ceremony on the Day of Memory and Sorrow emerged on Wednesday.

Twitter users responded to Dotcom’s tweet by sharing other badass photos of the Russian leader, known for his macho persona.

Others, however, defended Obama sharing a picture of him walking in the rain without cover, comparing it to a photo of current President Donald Trump holding an umbrella.

KIM DOTCOM.

Pat Buchanan: The Impeach-Trump Conspiracy

Paleoconservative Pat Buchanan, the man who’s been right about immigration and so many other things over the last 30 years, analyzes the conspiracy to overthrow President Donald Trump.

It’s disturbing reading, even if we already knew much of what Pat tells us in his latest essay. In light of today’s testimony by J. Edgar Comey, this piece is especially relevant.

Lew Rockwell

Pressed by Megyn Kelly on his ties to President Trump, an exasperated Vladimir Putin blurted out, “We had no relationship at all. … I never met him. … Have you all lost your senses over there?”

Yes, Vlad, we have.

Consider the questions that have convulsed this city since the Trump triumph, and raised talk of impeachment.

Did Trump collude with Russians to hack the DNC emails and move the goods to WikiLeaks, thus revealing the state secret that DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was putting the screws to poor Bernie Sanders?

If not Trump himself, did campaign aides collude with the KGB?

Now, given that our NSA and CIA seemingly intercept everything Russians say to Americans, why is our fabled FBI, having investigated for a year, unable to give us a definitive yes or no?

The snail’s pace of the FBI investigation explains Trump’s frustration. What explains the FBI’s torpor? If J. Edgar Hoover had moved at this pace, John Dillinger would have died of old age.

We hear daily on cable TV of the “Trump-Russia” scandal. Yet, no one has been charged with collusion, and every intelligence official, past or prevent, who has spoken out has echoed ex-acting CIA Director Mike Morrell:

“On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there is smoke, but there is no fire, at all. … There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark.”

Where are the criminals? Where is the crime?

France: Macron Hacked, Blames Russia, Sues Le Pen

Although the BBC won’t tell it’s readers the details about the Macron hacked documents, Zerohedge offers the image above purportedly showing that leading French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron is involved in a Cayman Islands illegal tax evasion scheme.

It’s not clear that the documents are genuine. They could easily be a smear job on Macron, designed to taint a Le Pen victory, should she win.

BBC

The campaign of French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron says it has been the target of a “massive hacking attack” after a trove of documents was released online.

The campaign said that genuine files were mixed up with fake ones in order to confuse people.

It said that it was clear the hackers wanted to undermine Mr Macron ahead of Sunday’s second round vote.

The centrist will face off against far-right candidate Marine Le Pen.

The documents were leaked on a file sharing website late on Friday.

The Macron camp condemned the leak minutes before the official campaigning period ended at midnight (22:00 GMT).

Candidates and the media now face restrictions until the polls close on Sunday evening, meaning Mr Macron cannot issue any more statements.

Opinion polls had indicated the former economy minister carried a lead of 20 percentage points or more over Ms Le Pen.
What was released?

About nine gigabytes of data were posted online by an anonymous user.
The details are unclear so far, but Mr Macron’s En Marche movement said internal campaign documents, including emails and financial data, had been taken in an “act of massive, co-ordinated hacking”.

“The leaked files were obtained several weeks ago by hacking personal and professional email accounts of several officials of the movement,” it said in a statement.

The campaign said the documents showed only legitimate campaign activities.

France’s election authorities have warned media outlets against reporting on the contents of the leaked documents because of the restrictions now in place.

Who might be responsible?

That too remains unclear. The Macron camp has not blamed any specific party but said the hack clearly aimed to damage it and undermine French democracy,

It compared it to the leak of Democratic Party emails in last year’s US presidential election that was blamed on Russian hackers.

Wikileaks, which published those emails, posted a link to the Macron documents on Twitter but implied it was not responsible.

Last month security experts from the company Trend Micro said that Russian hackers were targeting Mr Macron’s campaign.

Russia has denied that it is behind attacks aimed at Mr Macron.

If Le Pen wins, the press now has it’s narrative: The Russians got her elected.

Meanwhile, CNBC and a host of other news organizations have reported that Macron has sued Le Pen over what he calls Kremlin smears.

The favorite for the French presidency, Emmanuel Macron, has filed a lawsuit following comments made by his far-right rival Marine Le Pen in which she implied the independent centrist politician owns a secret offshore bank account in the Caribbean.

Macron, who has denied he holds any such account, filed a legal complaint on Thursday which prompted the French prosecutor’s office to formally open an investigation ahead of Sunday’s second round run-off vote. The lawsuit is not against Le Pen but is aimed at anyone spreading the rumors online.

The allegations of a secret offshore bank account appeared to have been spread by right-wing websites and social media with Macron’s supporters pointing out some of the sites had also supported U.S. President Donald Trump throughout the U.S. election.

Macron’s team sought to show exactly how the accusations were spread online in the hours leading up to Wednesday’s televised debate by publishing an exhaustive report of how such websites attempted to damage the French presidential hopeful.

Paul Craig Roberts Warns “Trump Now A Captive Of The Deep State”

I’d like to think that President Trump had good intentions while candidate Trump. It seems to me that the problem, part of it anyway, is that his negative press coverage (91 percent negative) made it impossible to govern without a truce of sorts with the (((Deep State.))) I’d also like to think that he’s playing with their minds and is intent on double crossing them when the time is right.

Zerohedge

When the gullible and insouciant American public and the presstitutes who participate in the deceptions permitted the Deep State to get away with the fairy tale that a few Saudi Arabians under the direction of Osama bin Laden, but without the support of any government or intelligence agency, were able to outwit the entirety of the Western Alliance and Israel’s Mossad and deliver the greatest humiliation in history to “the world’s only superpower” by making the entirety of the US government dysfunctional on September 11, 2001, Washington learned that it could get away with anything, any illegal and treasonous act, any lie. The gullible Western populations would believe anything that they were told.
