You are waiting for the perfect link and, you'll never accept any that are given.
So, using BING, type into the search bar:
"obama request 15,00 russian troops"
There are 2,540,000 results, choose your link.
Read some of the results there boy.

Read what is ACTUALLY being done.

Is it true that FEMA signed an agreement to deploy Russian troops to provide security at mass events in the U.S.A.? No, that's a fictional claim based on an actual agreement signed by representatives of FEMA and the Russian Emergency Ministry on June 25, 2013 stating that the two countries will share the expertise of first responders and emergency managers as part of an ongoing collaborative emergency relief program last renewed in 2007. The agencies also agreed to collaborate on improving protections against meteorite impacts and other space threats.

Actually I have been watching your incursions’ into the world of the Tin Hats. Patience you have. As I originally stated the source and the following sources came from extreme right wing {EU”s} National front for one example. Ala propaganda the weak minded easily fall prey to. Defiant’s abusive rebellion to rational and authority, began as it does with most of us in childhood. Many of us moved on to mature rational adult human beings, as with the handicap weakened mind,[ Defiant, Tex’s Truth} remain in their arrested development. Bravely sounding the alarm for the “FEMA concentration camps and our government will overthrow us scenarios!! AND they whine “why do you repeat?” Ha, Ha, Ha
How many times have we discussed the employment issue? AND still they persist to mumble away to themselves further deeper into their abysses. Consider that Carter in 4 years created more jobs than the 2 Bush’s plus first 4 years of Reagan’s. If I were to bring out the big guns like Bill Clinton, who would Tsunami the employment argument into oblivion, they would still slither away and site micro analyzed le propaganda numbers. Republicans are the worst stewardship in our nations 80 years history.
A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there are more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..

Why don't you just admit that you are nothing more than a shill for the fascist corporate plutocracy in DC and that average citizens are not
supposed to know what's going on?.
So, GFY.
HO hum just more of the same old blather. Fascist is right wing thingy celebrated with Tea. That is what you and your cronies have supported. Give to the “Poor Little Rich Boy’s Campaigns.” Further the INEQUALITY factors. That’s something that whooshes right over their heads of these mentality handicap individuals of the merry parade of the Pied Piper’s and are easily seduced by the melodies of “A La Propaganda”
CEO’s Inequality
Inequality In The USA. Has the highest level among the advanced industrial countries. Comparing to some such as Hungary, Belgium and France which have no significant increases to their inequality. Where in as the USA has been increasing to be more aligned with Iran, Jamaica, Uganda and the Philippines.
GDP does not take into account the measure of inequality. Does not measure the security of its citizens.
All boats rise equally on the rising tide is no longer applicable here in the USA. We have harbors that restrict through manipulation the rising tides. The few affluent yachts at the open end of the harbor suffer no restrictions of significance, equal to the manipulated incoming tide, to the boats in the restricted harbors. Tide dams have been erected to offset the flow of rising tides within the harbors.
Example; Presently USA CEO’s have 200 to 1 ratio in income to the average laborer. Japan as one example has a 16 to 1 ratio. Less than 50 years ago USA had a 30 to 1 ratio. This rising inequality has stimulated additional wanna-be’s executives to seek the same. One example can be found in the UK. The UK’s “High Pay Commission” reported that their top executives were approaching Victorian levels. Presently though they are at the levels of the 1920’s as measured for inequality in laborers’ productivity distributions of wealth.
Sweden, UK and additionally some of the Scandinavian nations and some within the European Union have taken steps to nip this inequality of distributions. Restricting CEO’s pay to a ratio of corporations earnings and out law golden parachutes. Bonuses and gifts as well. There is a provision that allows for parts or all to be circumnavigated if the voters agree. That is, not the voters of the corporation boards but all citizens voters. Sweden passed it in 2012 the others are putting it up for debate and or vote by their citizens.
USA…. the thundering sound of crickets on the issue.

Thank you for the diagnosis Dr. Blarney. Now kindly go have sex with thyself, you partisan shill.

The results of our runaway government is plain for
all to see. Keep posting your "facts-N-figgers". "Keep repeating a lie
long enough, everyone will believe it". Now who said that?.

Typical evade, distract, project AND no answerer, no substance no facts. Say a lie long enough these days, with an advanced communicational systems, merely exposes the liar ever the more, forevermore..
As competitors increase their infrastructures to swamp us on the international free trade markets, education, innovations, health, and so on. Tea Potters suggest we cower away and give up. Pitiful Tea tainted strategy. Do not touch the 84% of wealth to the 20%.… Voucher and end social programs to the 80% for they only have 16% of the wealth. Teabagger’s intoxication is pitifully ignorant.
Bush had negative employment, as has 30 years of republican administrations. That demonstrates the lack of productivity to our national health. Bush Jr. handed over a rapidly failing government 4.5 years ago. With 750,000 a month increase to unemployment per month!! GDP to debt to 20%. No exit strategy to two blank check wars. You ask am I better off? What?? Look around you and take off your foxy glasses and observe for your self. In spite of all the Tea Flavored obstructions WAY better off.“OR” you would prefer 4.5 years back when ;

THE PREDATORS;
Paulson admits deregulation has failed us all

By MarketWatch
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)-- You know things are very very bad on Wall Street when a guy like Henry Paulson -- Treasury secretary, solid Republican, and former Goldman Sachs CEO -- joins the crowd calling for more regulation over the financial markets.
Paulson spared no one in his criticism Thursday of the excesses of deregulation that has now created the worst global financial crisis in a generation, threatening the health of the U.S. economy, the savings of millions of Americans, and the survival of some of the biggest financial institutions in the world.
Wall Street and Washington both failed big time, he said. Wall Street invented new ways to make money by selling securities so complicated that no one could really follow which shell the pea was under. Fortunes were made on the paper Wall Street sold.
At the same time, Washington's watchdogs were dozing, tranquilized by the false assurance that Wall Street would police its own.
It's been obvious for years now that Wall Street could not be trusted, and finally official Washington agrees. The markets need a tougher cop to make sure that money-center banks, investment banks, credit-rating agencies, hedge funds, mortgage brokers and the rest don't let their own greed and arrogance ruin it for the rest of us.
"Regulation needs to catch up with innovation," Paulson said, and he was backed up by the rest of President Bush's working group on financial markets, including Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and Securities and Exchange Commissioner Chris Cox. Not a commie among them.
The housing bubble wasn't a flaw; it was a predictable outcome of a system that rewarded smart people small fortunes for conjuring up ways to persuade people to borrow more than they could ever hope to pay back. All the profits were taken off the table quickly, but the staggering costs are only now being paid by homeowners, shareholders, builders and the rest of society.
Paulson's proposals won't necessarily prevent a recurrence, but they are a humble recognition that the centerpiece of two decades of Republican economic policy have failed.
-- Rex Nutting, Washington bureau chief
Republicans have not strayed from their previous agendas other than to increase the probabilities of failure.
The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is. The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries. Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy! Winston Churchill

Your lack of reading comprehension is showing up when you attack Komrade Blarney. He's just another left wing kook like you.

How can we have any faith in what you post, with third grade level reading comprehension?. You need to get that tube steak smothered in skivvies out of your mind when you post. Not everyone is a "boy" even
if you wish it was so.

Does you link refute my numbers? I comprehend that you evaded a direct answer to that question.

I asked for you to refute my numbers that you claim are wrong. I comprehend that so far you have avoided providing anything that refutes my numbers boy.
