Obama shoved to sidelines as Russia ignores U.S. threats of isolation


President Obama warned Russia on Monday of possible U.S. sanctions over its military land grab in Ukraine, but Moscow brushed aside international threats, tightening its stranglehold on Crimea and calling audaciously for a national unity government in Kiev.

In Washington, Mr. Obama said the world is “largely united” against Russia’s military action and he is considering economic and diplomatic steps that would gradually isolate Russia. He criticized the government of Russian President Vladimir Putin for being “on the wrong side of history.”


“What cannot be done is for Russia with impunity to put its soldiers on the ground and violate basic principles that are recognized around the world,” Mr. Obama said. “Over time, this will be a costly proposition for Russia.”

But the U.S. and European Union floundered for solutions — while global markets panicked over the prospect of violent upheaval in the heart of Europe. Fears grew that the Kremlin might carry out more land grabs in pro-Russian eastern Ukraine, or elsewhere in the former Soviet Union, adding urgency to Western efforts to defuse the crisis.

obama can't expect Putin to believe his "line in the sand" talk when obama has backed down every time he has drawn one.  And no other nation believes obama or believes in him.  If I were a leader of another nation and obama told me that America sttod with me, I would be making plans that did not include the US.

I have more respect for Putin than I do obozo or for that matter anyone in Washington. Putin is a communist I know what a communist is. He lives his talk.
Obozo and our legislatures say they are Americans. Really? Look at America today and YOU tell me if our leaders are True Americans. I say NOT!!!!

Mona,! Thank you! I also think Putin is a good man. Sure he has did some things against his people that is wrong. But at least he has a set of ball. Excuse the wording. Abeed in our Whitehouse? Has none. And will back his muslim brothers, until the end. But i know that Putin will come at them (muslims) like a wirlwind! And i know that to be fact! Our Bible tells us so! Don't forget MAY 16th.!!! Make or Break time!!! Hope you will be there. As Always. " I live my life. That when my feet hit the floor in the morning. The devil and muslims say, " OH CRAP!!! HE IS AWAKE!!!"

I wonder if Obama knows whose boss.  I know who is boss over the Russia/Ukraine debacle and the person is Putin and he is laughing at the US all the way to the Ukraine.  He knows Obama is a wimp went it comes to do anything to these foreign ministers.  How in the world we got this campaign speech idiot I will never know.  He is gay, radical, hypocrit, going over Congress for his own agenda, hiring Muslim Terrorist Chaplains and will be another Fort Hood.  Please, Please American help us get this radical, liberal, evil, hypocritical, Muslim, Communist out of the WH and the rest of his cohorts and this includes the RINO'S.  We have got to get these Communist before our country is demolished, but we have one more option and this is to everyone who has turned their backs on the Lord to come back to him and confess your sins to help all of us gets the rats out of the WH immediately, before he declares Martial Law and will be in the WH permanently.   I am begging all of you to listenand wake up before it is too late.  Even if it means fight to keep what we have, then we will fight to win our country back.  So all of you think of what we need to do.

One usurper to another. WAAAW WA WA

Putin not only unfriended Obama on Facebook...he blocked him!!

Good one. We should all block obozo.

Time to ground Air Force 1. There' nowhere to fly to and project American power or image. Maybe a platinum Greyhound bus pass.

Putin just wrote one if his "executive orders".

Barry's handling of this event reminds me of the man who came home unexpectedly and found his wife in bed with another fellow. Spying the man's umbrella leaning against the wall, he picked it up, broke it over his knee, and said, "There! I hope to hell it rains!"




Bill and Hillary Clinton Brutally
Mocked After Defending

View image on Twitter

Crooked Bill and Hillary Clinton were brutally mocked Monday after defending the Clinton Foundation on social media.

The Clinton Foundation’s official Twitter account tweeted Saturday, “ICYMI: President @BillClinton wrote on Facebook this week about our work improving lives in the United States and around the world, from fighting climate change to combating the opioid crisis.”

Former President Bill Clinton’s Facebook post served to correct the record about so called fake news smearing the Clinton Foundation. Naturally, he linked to far left sites such as Snopes and Politifact to debunk the smears.

After touting all the charity the Clinton Foundation brings to hurricane victims, farmers in East Africa and combating Climate Change, Bill Clinton unleashed on Breitbart News for spreading conspiracy theories and false information about the Foundation.

Nevertheless, spreading false information about the Foundation continues, apparently as part of an ongoing strategy to distract attention from real problems and, over the long run, to completely erase the line between fact and fiction.

For example, just a few weeks ago on MSNBC, during a discussion of the President’s disparaging remarks about Haiti, his designated defender repeated the ridiculous assertion that I had taken money raised for Haiti for personal use and was responsible for the apparent suicide of a Haitian who knew all about it. Thankfully, the host cut her off, refusing to provide a forum for known false conspiracy theories. I’m proud of the work the Foundation and I have done in Haiti and will give you a more detailed report on that soon.

These attacks on the Foundation began in earnest with the 2015 publication of the Breitbart-inspired book, Clinton Cash. I thought the Foundation staff did a good job debunking the book’s charges, but they were published as written even in “mainstream” outlets, and even now the charges continue to be repeated online and in forums favorable to those who make them.

I have never responded personally to these charges, but out of respect for our donors, partners, and those who work at the Foundation, I think I should—because as we see, attacks, no matter how outrageous, can have a long life.

Bill Clinton also argued Chelsea’s wedding wasn’t paid for by Clinton Foundation donations nor do any of them receive salaries.

No, Foundation funds were not used to pay for Chelsea’s wedding. It’s not only untrue, it’s a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc. It was a wonderful day that Hillary and I were grateful to be able to pay for.

Clinton also argued the foundation was given 4 out 4 stars from Charity Navigator, Platinum from GuideStar, A from Charity Watch, and a 20 out of 20 score for meeting all of the Better Business Bureau’s good practice standards.

Hillary Clinton tweeted: Want to hear the real story of the @ClintonFdn? Read this: 

 Trump supporters savaged the Clintons.

How about when Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Oman donated MILLIONS to your foundation when you were Secretary of State and then you conducted official US business with them? 

What about how Haitian villages that you raised money for are STILL without the homes, schools and infrastructure you promised for them? Where did it go Hillary? Where's that money? Why did you plunder the great people of Haiti? 


Unless it explains

Benghazi 33,000 missing emails  Haiti  Destroyed electronics  Missing money
Uranium One Etc

Then no. Nope.  
Not on Presidents day.  

Care to tell us how much the Foundation pays out in salaries each year? 


Slush fund? Pay-to-play? Salaries for Sid Blumenthal?
Fraud in Haiti?  The vast majority of funds don't reach people in need?
That's the real story, right?
