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.

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.

Fake News? Russia Says It Can Wipe Out Entire U.S. Navy with ONE Electronic Bomb

Fox News

Russia has claimed it can disable the entire US Navy in one fell swoop using powerful electronic signal jamming.

A news report from the country – where the media is essentially controlled by the state – said the technology could render planes, ships and missiles useless.

The newsreader says: “Today, our Russian Electronic Warfare (REW) troops can detect and neutralise any target from a ship’s system and a radar, to a satellite.”

The news report claims a single Russian war plane flew several times around American destroyer the USS Donald Cook in the Black Sea several years ago, disabling its systems and leaving it helpless.

The report also claims they are capable to creating electronic jamming domes over their bases that make them invisible on radar screens.

The propaganda piece even quotes top US General Frank Gorenc as saying: “Russian electronic weapons completely paralyse the functioning of American electronic equipment installed on missiles, aircraft and ships.”

The reporter adds: “You don’t need to have expensive weapons to win – powerful radio-electronic jamming is enough.”

The news comes after Donald Trump dispatched the USS Carl Vinson, powered by nuclear reactors, carrying almost 100 aircraft and accompanied by destroyers, a cruiser, and a submarine to the Korean Peninsula.

And the commander-in-chief is said to be bolstering American deployment in the region by sending the USS Ronald Reagan and the USS Nimitz to the Sea of Japan next week.

Russia, along with China, is said to have sent a spy ship to the area to ward off the task force amid rising tensions in the region.

And Putin urged the US to show “restraint”.

Meanwhile, in response to this story, Popular Mechanics reports that there is no electronic bomb.

The Russian TV report is an explainer on Russian Electronic Warfare (REW) troops, which the reporter claims can “neutralize any target” from “a ship’s system to a radar to a satellite.” This apparently includes synthetic aperture radars on NATO satellites, aircraft, and other platforms, which can form images of targets in the air and on the ground using radar waves. In this case, “neutralizing” doesn’t mean blowing something to bits, but rather jamming its radar sensors to effectively render it blind.

The Russian news report concludes with the bombastic line, “You don’t need to have expensive weapons to win – powerful radio-electronic jamming is enough.” That claim isn’t supported by the actual report, which says REW systems can only shut down enemy radars and hide friendly forces. To actually win a war, you need to kill the enemy and break stuff—something radio waves can’t do.

The Russian television and Sun tabloid story are both blends of real and fake news. Russia’s electronic warfare troops do indeed have some powerful electronic warfare systems—but pay no mind to oddball claims that they can make enemy sailors resign out of sheer fear or win wars singlehandedly.

Putin’s Father of All Bombs FOUR TIMES BIGGER Than Trump’s Mother of All Bombs

MINE IS BIGGER, SAYS PUTIN.

I suspect that the Russians planted this story in the Western press in order to defuse the enthusiasm of Americans for Trump’s use of the Mother of All Bombs on Afghanistan.

Common sense would say that Russian president Vladimir Putin wants to discourage more U.S. military interventionism.

By the way, the photo collage above was originally used by the press in a report on what great buddies Trump and Putin were.

From the standpoint of world peace, it’s too bad that the (((neocons))) in the American (((Deep State))) had to ruin America’s relationship with Russia. Because of their blood lust, the world is a much less safe place than it was a few months ago. At least to me it seems that way.

Here’s the story on the Russian super weapon.

The Sun

THE Russian military has a secret bomb which is FOUR TIMES as powerful as the mega-weapon Donald Trump’s military used to blast ISIS in their mountain hideaway.

The US bomb GBU-43B is the biggest non-nuclear bomb ever to be used in combat and proudly brags the tag The Mother Of All Bombs.

Now it has been revealed Vladimir Putin has even bigger bomb in his mighty arsenal and it really is ‘the daddy’.

Officially known as the Aviation Thermobaric Bomb of Increased Power – it’s already being dubbed the ‘Father Of All Bombs’.

It is reportedly four times bigger than the MOAB, carrying 44 tonnes of TNT and explodes in the same way as the US bomb.

Yet due to the sheer number of explosives crammed inside it causes similar blast damage to that of a nuclear weapon.

The bomb was test-fired by the Russians in 2007 where the temperature produced by the blast was also twice as high than that produced by the MOAB.

The bomber-dropped bomb is designed to explode midair by ignition of a fuel-air mixture that produces massive blast effects comparable to smaller tactical nuclear weapons.

“All that is alive merely evaporates,” General Alexander Rukshin, deputy chief of the Russian staff, was quoted as saying at the time.
Thermobaric devices detonate in two stages, with an initial blast dispersing explosive materials in a cloud that is then ignited by a secondary blast.

The explosion generates a much bigger pressure wave than conventional explosives, followed by a vacuum effect that compounds damage and injuries caused by the blast.

Russian sources have claimed their weapon has a power equivalent to 44 tons of TNT – or four times that of the MOAB – despite being lighter than its 21,000lb US counterpart at 16,650lb.

Because of its yield and the extremely high temperatures it generates, it is slated to replace smaller battlefield nukes currently in the Russian arsenal.

When the Russian air force began bombing rebel positions in Syria in September 2015, smaller thermobaric bombs were used against ISIS positions, but the FOAB has yet to be deployed.
