Putin?s Speech on Feb. 04, 2013
This is one time our elected leaders should pay attention to the advice of Vladimir Putin. How scary is that?

On February 4th, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma,(Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia:

"In Russia live Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, then we advise them to go to those places where that's the state law.

Russia does not need minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell 'discrimination'. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of most minorities.

When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the national interest first, observing that the minorities are not Russians.

The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation.

If you keep this to yourself, you are part of the problem.....

I don't know if it will happen or not, but if it does, won't it be wierd to watch as Reagan's policies turn Russia around and make it a good place to live and work while our own country turns into the old USSR. A lot of Russian owned property and businesses in America today. Wonder how much of America Russians own?

Russia's 13% flat income tax is going to attract a ton of wealthy Europeans. Pretty soon France and Spain will be dominated by poor immigrants. You can't enact a 75% income tax on your top earners and expect anyone to hang around. It only takes having legal residence in Russia for 183 days in the last calendar year to be a citizen....

Not to mention Snowden. Does anyone else find it kind of ironic about how many Russian Mig Pilot's and oodles of Scientists that America has given refuge to over the years, and we get upset when it is given to one of our defectors?

and then there is China, the big dog.

In Prime Time, Obama Struggles to Reason With Nation Over Syria

“I’ve spent four-and-a-half years working to end wars, not to start them,” he said, in a speech about starting a new one.

See, this is the big crime here, that the media let's President Peace Prize get away with this paradoxical idiocy. The US is not in a military conflict with Syria. So in the name of peace, he's going to bomb them... and it will somehow NOT constitute war.

Ya can't blame him. The media let's him get away with everything. Quintupled drone attacks in Pakistan. Continued war in Afghanistan and troops in Iraq. Regime change and abandoned diplomats in Libya. And it's bombs away in Yemen and Somalia.

And yet he is allowed to stand there and tell us all about what a peacemaker he is. And he never ONCE asked for the UN's permission. At least Bush and Cheney did *that*. Where is all this "proof" he has that Asad ordered the chemical attack?

There is a disastrous pattern here:

-Obama addresses school shootings and his proposals are nothing and the follow up is worse

-Obama addresses the Trayvon Martin case and his proposals are nothing and the follow up is non existent

-Obama addresses the economy with truly nothing proposals and the follow up is pure hell for most Americans

The difference between Putin and Obama: Putin spends his time with world leaders and addressing serious issues in a serious fashion, has the real world experience and a disciplined and graduated history-and Obama was a 2 year US Senator, that spends his time hanging out with the social VULTURES Jay Z and Beyoncé. How can you be surprised that Putin is bending Obama over in front of the world?

The chemical gas came from Iraq WMD stockpile.
None of us have received a single bit of evidence that we can examine for ourselves besides video footage, which does not in any way tell us who did what. All we have had thus far is a number of claims by those "in the know." How can we make an informed judgment when we only have claims of evidence?

They say "we have intelligence" or "our reports find," but where is this information? We have the President of Syria steadfastly denying that he gassed anyone, and our president saying he did--should we assume that Obama is telling the truth even without seeing the 'evidence' that he apparently sees? Since when did any reasonable person blindly make a judgment without evidence and on someone else's word alone?

Well, if we didnt learn anything else from all of this, we have one lesson learned the hard way.

Russia is back.

And it has a powerful Tsar.

So, now we are back to where we were 30 years ago. Back to half the world being under thier orbit (Moscow)...and our half is...well...

...where did they go?

Where is our team?

He's not going to do a thing because he does NOT know what he's doing. He is in way over his head. Worst president ever.

BARRYS MUDDLED MESSAGE

He has pulled nearly every media lever available to him, saturating the airwaves with appearances on every TV network -- two nights in a row -- to make his case for action against Syria. But President Obama and his administration have seemed unable to get a coherent message campaign off the ground. It has appeared at times as though the administration has even been flying by the seat of its pants through an international crisis.

"The president just seems to be very uncomfortable being commander in chief of this nation," Sen. Bob Corker, a supporter of Obama's push for military action, vented to CNN Wednesday. "It's just a complete muddlement."

Professor Jameson said the speech was part of a failed communication strategy on the part of the White House.

Obama is only good at reading from a teleprompter.

As for actual original thought from him...well, its lacking, isnt it?

Obama clearly ready to go to war just to save his pride. Mr. President, Can you hear America now?

Obama is trying to keep you from remembering Benghazi. So he spins drama elsewhere...
1 year later and no witnesses have been brought forward, no one charged. If this was ANY OTHER PRESIDENT THE LIB SHEEP WOULD BE RIOTING IN THE STREETS A YEAR AGO. The puppet community organizer gets yet another free pass. Just sickening.
