Russia defiant as U.S. raises pressure over Snowden (Putin humiliates Obama just for fun)
Reuters ^ | 6/24/13 | Lidia Kelly and James Pomfret

Posted on 06/24/2013 4:55:08 AM PDT by jimbo123

Russia defied White House pressure on Monday to expel former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden to the United States before he flees Moscow on the next stop of his globe-crossing escape from U.S. prosecution.

Why is the liberal media surprised that Russia and China are mocking and humiliating Obama for being a weakling and an empty suit?

Russia and China would never have thought they could have gotten away with doing something this visible to Reagan. Or even the Bushes.

China gave Obama the locker room wedgie.

And Putin pulled down Obama's gym shorts in front of the world.

This is Russia’s payback for the United States telling Russia to “mind your own business” when they informed us about the Boston Bombers. I’m betting Snowden has “proof”.

With all the blackmail level intel they have on JugEars____

Just think of Vlad Putin as the organ grinder and Obama as his little monkey. Doing whatever monkey shines the organ grinder says.

Only our ignorant welfare class and university idiots thought Obama could be a leader with no credentials to his name. Wishing for unicorns and lollipops in a world where China and Russia play hard ball is a recipe for national disaster.

It’s bizarre to watch the AM news. The newscasters are still acting like Snowden’s a traitor. Whoever could have imagined just 20 years ago that a creepy spy thriller like this would be the US feds chasing a citizen trying to get the truth out to citizens about just how spied-upon we are?

We all know that all countries spy on each other. So there's something that really "burns" Obama and his bootlickers.

But let's not forget the IRS spying and "altering" an election by cutting off groups from being involved.

Well, the world has been giving President Obama, the finger, followed by spitting in his eye, followed by pulling his pants down, and finally a “wedgy”.

Obama is probably the least respected US President since...well, since Carter but even that moron had some advantages, (though I am trying to recall just one).

America's friends are looking away in embarrassment while America's enemies are watching Obama reruns. For them it's like the Beverly Hillbilly's and Putin's stomach hurts from laughing too much...

The Cheap Labor Global Elitist ptb were okay with running throw-away candidates rather than cede power to constitutional conservatives.

Meanwhile, they concentrate global wealth and power for their diminishing numbers. I don't think it occurred to them that Obama's presidency could rain on their parade.

The media and Obama came out with this Snowden and a hundred other scandals to get rid of the IRS scandal where Obama ordered the IRS to rig the election for Obama and the democrats/socialists in Congress. What happened to the IRS hearings?

How embarrassing to have our longtime enemies point out, indirectly, how stupid American voters are and how our evolving democracy has been used against us by elected phony leaders!

The time to get rid of this phony, narcissistic, mystery man is now. Our two political parties, plus the repulsive Bernie Sanders, are as much an enemy of America as the Taliban.

These political hogs, along with the Supreme Court, have shredded and made a mockery of the Constitution our founding fathers carefully assembled for us. Let’s use the rest of it to strangle this corrupted corpse we call a government and start over.

I like to watch people that do not follow political topics closely to get a read on what is happening in the U.S. on a larger scale.

I asked my wife and the college kids at the Sprint store if the know the name Snowden. My wife said yes, one said no, the other (ear ring tech geek) was very familiar with him. In fact he chastised the guy for not knowing Snowden. The kid said I know what your talking about, just not his name.

Anyhow, the college kids at the Sprint store and my wife do not like to follow the politics of DC. However, on this point she and the young men are seething. They feel that Snowden (regardless of his politics) did the right thing as he demonstrated that our government has little oversight and is running over our rights like a Mack truck hitting an empty can on the road.

At the end they were apathetic and felt powerless to do anything.

I explained they are Obama’s voting bloc and they need to hold they Senators and Congressmen on the carpet for allowing this to happen. They need to let the Democrats know this is upsetting. I told them to use the power of their newly formed voting bloc to demand a change. I explained people like me are already demanding change. When they get involved it will happen.

Good place to post this find!

Obozo should be toast and on his way out the door of the disgraced White Hut with his pitiful family and meager possessions with no pension, no nothing. He’s ruined the nation and if it will recover it will take decades. By that time we could be toast since the idiot lowered our continental defense system.

All he’s accomplished is to pile miles on Air Force One and to rack up personal reimbursed expenses by the millions.

These Obama-Sotoroes are worse than a parody of the Jeffersons. They’re more like a parody of Amos and Andy with this lying idiot playing the part of the King Fish.

Oh, by the way, take that dumbass Scranton Joe with you, Braaaack!

And many of the university idiots were "Russian Studies" majors! I guess they didn't pay attention in class because Russians have been behaving like this since the beginning of time.

That pretty much hits the nail on the head. Too bad our country has denigrated into a mass of mindless idiocrats. In my younger days, this imposter would have been thrown out on his ass in shame.

Ya know, I still have to deal with a number of hard-core Democrats who keep insisting George W. was an idiot because he mispronounced nuclear as “nook-yuh-ler”.

I’m not that old, but am I the ONLY one who remembers Jimmy Carter? And he spent a good bit of his life aboard nook-yuh-ler submarines!

Can some one here, please explain to me, how we have an agency, the NSA, who can virtually find out anything and everything on each of us here...can target us for tax audits...can badger us...in many ways....AND NOBODY IN THAT AGENCY, NOT ONE PERSON, HAS ANY KNOWLEDGE SURROUNDING THE BIRTH PLACE, TRAVEL, SOCIAL SECURITY, COLLEGE HISTORY, ETC ETC OF THE GUY IN THE WHITE HOUSE? Was Obama a CIA informant? Did he spy for us? I mean why the secret about the guy? And while we’re at it...people like this guy Snowdon has not one piece of information on Obama...

Oh, and yeah...you better believe that Putin is going to rub Obama’s nose in the dirt on this one, and Syria. The next two weeks will be interesting.

I’ve read the stories of the other whistle blowers who went the way of reporting things the legal way, and what’s happened to them. No wonder, Snowdon did it this way.

We’re in big trouble people. Our country is not what is was even five years ago. You think Jimmy Carter hurt us...? The effects of the Obama regime...will be affecting us and generations to come....

0-bama is the worst person in the world right now and he alone is the greatest threat to Americans that love liberty and the constitution. Anyone that opposes this POS deserves our support.
I don’t care if Snowden is a Chinese spy. Snowden did every American that believes in liberty a great service by exposing the corrupt surveillance state greatly expanded by our disgusting and malevolent dictator.

There are a few movies with a plot similar to that. "Enemy of the State" comes to mind. Will Smith, Gene Hackman, 15 years ago (1998)

Bush was hated because he had the Cowboy image and spoke like a down to Earth man who yes, even made mistakes or misspoke himself - he was not the teleprompter in Chief.

Carter, as I remember him (despite all efforts at trying to erase this period from my memory), spoke with a southern drawl and sounded and acted like an idiot, one notch above his more idiot brother, Billy. Remember “Billy Beer”? Carter's own line of mediocre beer?

Anyway, George Bush will remained a condemned man by the Liberals just because, he's George Bush the Idiot. Others, like the current President can get away with absurd and outlandish things and nobody says a word. It's “1984’s Newspeak”.

Didja ever think that a former KGB colonel & virtual dictator of Russia would now have a growing posse of Americans cheering him on as he disses our Prez?

If Putin comes to America he will be met at the airport by enthusiastic fans. I’d be there for one.

How times do change.

On one level, I could say that any enemy of the US government - who have declared me to be their enemy - is at least potentially a friend of mine, (making the distinction between the US government and the American people).

OTOH, the culture itself has been so corrupted by the Communist Long March Through the Institutions that I don’t even resonate much with anybody here anymore, and it doesn’t even feel like my country.

Are the Russians or the Chinese going to treat people like you and me any worse than our own government is clearly planning to? At least the “final solution” would not have the added pain of being a betrayal by our own government.
