President Trump Speaks To Russian President Vladimir Putin…

A readout from the White House following a phone call today between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

[White House] President Donald J. Trump of the United States and President Vladimir Putin of the Russian Federation spoke today regarding Syria. President Trump and President Putin agreed that the suffering in Syria has gone on for far too long and that all parties must do all they can to end the violence.

The conversation was a very good one, and included the discussion of safe, or de-escalation, zones to achieve lasting peace for humanitarian and many other reasons. The United States will be sending a representative to the cease-fire talks in Astana, Kazakhstan on May 3-4. They also discussed at length working together to eradicate terrorism throughout the Middle East. Finally, they spoke about how best to resolve the very dangerous situation in North Korea. (link)

        No, he needs to invite Putin to the White House for a visit. He’s already visiting with Abbas today, and two months ago he visited with the king of Saudi Arabia. That is where all the plan hijackers came from on 9-11. But no…McCain, Lindsey and the liberals invent false enemy in Putin who has NEVER attacked. the U.S. If he wants to put this matter to rest then get Putin to the white house, that will shut them up. It’s real easy for the neo-cons to be bully’s to Putin when he is in his own country.

      No doubt he sent the signal to be patient – that the political climate in the swamp is very hostile to Russia but that Putin will get nothing but willingness to collaborate with the Trump admin on common problems.

      If Russia issues a statement or makes some kind of policy adjustment that is unfavorable to North Korea then it will only solidify the fact that Trump is a master negotiator.

            Sundance had shared a video weeks/months ago with an interview of Assad by a Chinese journalist. It was where I had walked away never thinking Assad would ever bomb his own people.

            I’m not saying he didn’t, because he may not have seen them as his own people, which would’ve made it easier to have done this heinous act.

            If our TRex says the evidence is overwhelming on Assad being the culprit, than I will believe TRex. He has no reason to lie to us that I’ve found. I will take his word over the msm.

    I am so tired of the constant Putin-bashing from the Left and Right. Putin is a Christian and pro-Western civilisation nationalist.He is pro-Russia and works to promote, defend and advance Russia. For this he is pilloried. The reason the Left hates Putin is because he is all these things – and they hate anyone who is not a Lefty Progressive Regressive. Putin is also keeping the LGBT fascists at bay, which is also against the Left’s Progressive Regressive bible. Putin recognised the danger of allowing “NGO’s” into Russia – he has seen them used as wolf in sheep’s clothing to bring down governments (think Ukraine). So he kicked them out of Russia. Putin and Russia are just about the last defence for our Western culture. So it’s about time we support Putin and stop falling for the constant propaganda against him. He has my respect.

      The same is true of Syria, a country fighting near a dozen jihadi groups armed and financed by various foreign countries, including the US and the UK, e.g. the “White Helmets.” President Trump could start by defunding these “White Helmets” of the $100 million they currently deploy terrorizing Idlib province in central-Syria.

      I also think that President Trump — with his solid economic foundation learned at the Wharton School — could help Putin free the Russian economy of the socialist shackles imposed by Harvard economists back in the 1990’s.

        The oil we will no longer import has to find other markets at lower prices.

        This will driving down the oil-export prices of Mideast countries to starve their ability to fund both Terrorism and Military Aggression.

        This will also reduce Russia’s Energy-Export income and could erode their monopolistic pricing and supply to Europe if America develops the capacity to export Liquified Natural Gas.

        Putin will want to ingratiate himself with President Trump by helping tamp down the Iranian and North Korean programs for missile development and nuclear weapons, not to mention facilitating safe zones in Syria and potentially North Africa to enable the return of millions of refugees.

        We should never romanticize any political leader, but Putin is truly an enigma. Here is his December 26, 2016 Christmas speech to Russia:

        We see many Euro-Atlantic nations that have taken a path to deny or reject their roots, including their Christian roots, which formed Western civilization. In these countries, moral foundations and traditional identity are denied — national, religious, cultural, even gender identities, are denied or relativized.

        These nations treat a family with many children as equal to a homosexual partnership; faith in God is equal to faith in Satan; the excesses and exaggerations of Political Correctness legitimize organizations that promote pedophilia. People in many European countries are actually ashamed of their religious affiliation and are afraid to speak about them. Christian holidays and celebrations are abolished or renamed, which thereby minimizes, or hides the deeper moral significance of the feast. And these countries try to force the model on other nations.

        I am deeply convinced that such a frontal attack on a culture leads to demographic and moral crisis. What is a clearer sign of the moral crisis in the West than the loss of reproductive function? Today nearly all “developed” Western countries cannot survive demographically, not even with the help of migrants.

        Without the moral values rooted in Christianity and other world religions, without the rules and moral values formed and refined over millennia, people inevitably lose their human dignity – become brutes. We consider it right and natural to defend and preserve these moral values. We must respect the right of every minority to self-determination, but at the same time, there cannot and must not be any doubt about the rights of the majority.

        We further notice that at the same time that this campaign plays out in individual nations, we observe at an international level attempts to create a unipolar, unified world view, a campaign that relativizes and removes international institutions and national sovereignty. In such a unipolar, unified world there is no place for sovereign states. Such a world needs only vassals and the surrender of personal identity and God-created diversity.

    MOSCOW, May 2 (Xinhua) — Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump agreed Tuesday to work jointly to seek diplomatic solutions to the Korean Peninsula tensions and consolidate truce in Syria during a phone conversation, the Kremlin said.

    “Putin called for restraint and a reduction in the level of tensions (in the Korean Peninsula). The presidents agreed to work jointly to settle the problem in a diplomatic way,” said a Kremlin statement.

    Sec Tillerson and FM Lavrov meeting:

    MOSCOW, May 1 (Xinhua) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson plan to meet in the United States next week, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Monday.

    Lavrov and Tillerson discussed over phone the schedule of upcoming talks on the sidelines of an Arctic Council ministerial meeting in Alaska on May 10 and 11, the statement read.

    When Sec. Tillerson said we had reached a low point after the brilliant Syria power play and that military powers shouldn’t and can’t continue like this, it was a great starting point…

    We have nowhere to go but up..The fact Putin was meeting with Merkel today and they discussed Ukraine etc , then it appears things are moving somewhat…

      I do not conflate the Russia ‘interfered with the election’ meme with the right time to start the dialogue with Russia. You are promoting a new meme, the kind favoured by the Donks, that is that the President had to ‘avoid’ or even worse hide from Russia because it might give credence to alleged Russia ‘ties’. Geo-politics and the strategic interests of the US do not revolve on such puerile notions.

    This is the area where our President truly shines. There is nothing that the Uniparty can do to interfere. He doesn’t need congress to give him permission to talk with foreign leaders. There is a very good chance that he will be seen as the best foreign policy president ever to hold the seat of presidency.

    Peace for the first time between Israel and Palestinian’s, Syria’s conflict resolved, NK completely denuclearized, and Iran on the cusp of implosion. These are all real possibilities.

    The Russians have worked diplomatically and politically in Syria with the opposition, some rebel groups that did not join al Nusra or ISIS and who have stopped fighting. They have 1475 agreements with cities, towns, tribal areas, villages. It has not been all war since they got there in Sept. 2015. They work on humanitarian, mine-clearing, education, medical as well as putting MPs into dangerous quarters to provide a police presence so ceasefires hold.

    Today a Lt. Colonel was killed by a terrorist sniper. The Russians are paying with blood to help stop the Syrian catastrophe.

    The Astana talks are important ongoing confidence boosters that should lead to a new Constitution that recognizes non-Arab groups. It changes the name of the country from Syrian Arab Republic.
    Syrian Republic will have many zones of more-or-less autonomy for Kurds, Yazidis, Armenians, etc.

    Already, the Russians have moved into Afrin with MPs and some others to keep the Turks out and to work with the Kurds there.

    Here’s some info on that move by RF.Mostly, photographic where you can see the RF flag flying with the Kurdish flag and in some places with the SAR flag. Symbolism for Erdogan to accept.

      Bull Durham, you always have so much Russian information, and are always pro-Russia.
      Are you Russian? Or (excuse the hyphenated term) Russian-American?

      Just wondering.

      BTW, recently when you weren’t commenting much, several people here were hoping you would come back and seemed worried about you. Hope you saw that.

      I had a brief online conversation during campaign season with a Russian man, when he and an American were going at it, chest-thumping about what USA vs Russian leaders were doing/had done/might do.

      I said “the USA people are not always happy about what their leaders do (recall Obama was still President) and I am sure the Russian people have not always been happy with their leaders either. We need to realize that if the people of nations could get along, maybe rapport could be established, and that chest-thumping was not aiding the conversation on that thread.”

      The American got testy with me, but the Russian apologized and agreed. Leading to a few lines of polite conversation in that thread. (Don’t recall the site now, but might have been a Brit site?)

      We weaponize Islam (our CIA) and arm ISIS and Al Qaeda then turn around and want to destroy them. McCain has a friendly meeting with ISIS leaders and talks about Russia aggression. After making a mess in Syria, we want to create ‘safe zones’. In the past, I would have considered it impossible for the US to have done the things I now believe we have done.

      And Ivanka wants more Syrians in the US, as if that helps anyone. Please tell me she did not mean what I heard her say in Germany. And Jared gets investment money from Soros, tell me it ain’t so, please.

      There must be something here that makes us look good. Oh, yeah, freedom of speech. At least we can say it is worse in France, Antifa is even more violent there. Question is is it the CIA that is behind the violence there? No way to know and why would we not think they aren’t behind it given their past.

      Until the swamp is drained, freedom is restored, the self funding rogue CIA is cleaned up, and Left wing bullying is a thing of the past, I can’t get interested in the mess we created elsewhere in the world.

      Can anyone really trust us to clean up our own mess? Maybe that is the point of using the US to make these messes, then make a mess of the cleanup, to prove we should not be engaged.

      Until Trump really gets control of our government the world is screwed.

          Actually, the only state or empire that real Muslims look forward to (and are willing to fight for) is the just and peaceful kingdom of Jesus Christ which he will establish when he returns. The Quran and Muslim prophecies all point to that. Arabs thus are waiting for Jesus Christ to come back and save them from Gog and Magog and the Anti-Christ.

          All other “Muslim” movements for an Islamic State are the work of the Anti-Christ who resides in Iran since over 14 centuries. This includes the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS.

          The Old CIA was corrupt and was cooperating with Iran (i.e., the Antichrist) to destroy Arabs. The New CIA is completely different in alliances and purpose.

      If Hillary had won, she would have brought out another reset button that said “overcharged” to laugh about how she was (in her opinion) overcharging Russia for all that she sold to them of USA assets. (Uranium, and what else.)

      And she would then proceed to sell more and more to Russia (or Whomever Was Highest Bidder) of USA assets to line her own pockets.

      Meanwhile she would claim credit for detente with Russia. And the MSM would hail her as the best POTUS evah!

      No doubt Hillary sees/saw USA assets as fairly useless since USA was soon to be “going out of business,” and saw it as a going out of business sale, by which she could profit with no accountability, ever. (I hope she is wrong about no accountability ever.)

      She was running for President of the North American Union which would have been overseen by Obama in his planned oversight of the United Nations.

      (The two “boytoy-looking” Presidents of Mexico and Canada were groomed to work under the auspices of Obama and Hillary, likely also groomed to potentially be puppet presidents of North America under the Globalist Elites, as they are still young enough to be “the next generation” of puppets.)

      As far as Russia goes, the Globalists are always looking for a way to get Russia under its thumb. No doubt Putin would be replaced by a more amenable-to-globalism leader at some point, if they could manage it, and doing it through sanctions/false-detente/assasins or “we came we saw he died” methods makes little difference. As long as the outcome is the same: Russia no longer Christian or nationalist, and Russia in their pocket.

    The demographic changes will almost certainly continue given the continued collectivist stranglehold of Western civilization. The only likely successful fightback in Europe will be in Britain. And the Brexit negotiations are under the control of the progressive controlled Tories who have done nothing about mass-migration for years. Even someone like ex-UKIP Douglas Calswell has no problem with high immigration as long as Britain makes the rules.

    American politics is still controlled by progressives in both parties meaning the wall will probably never be built. And liberals remain in almost complete control of education and the mainstream media which means that the minds of the next generation will be just as left leaning, especially in comparison to those still remaining from the Reagan/Thatcher who are fast dying off.

    The Trump and Brexit wins were incredibly close with the demographics against both so clearly defined. We absolutely cannot win without the help of Russia and Eastern Europe. We cannot pick a fight with Putin who hates the progressives just as much as we do. He might be ex-KGB but a huge amount has changed since Putin came to power so it’s very possible that his ideological beliefs have changed in the same way that many Eastern European leaders are increasingly sounding and acting more like us. Not just words but actions. Putin standing up the the EU. Orban refusing to cave to their demands.

      Putin is as Putin does, but we need Putin and the last, dying remnants of the Russian people as allies against the Islamic hoards and the progressive imbeciles who would surrender to them.

      A profoundly important factor that few people notice is that Russia, which already has problems with a muslim minority, has not accepted more muslim immigrants. With the exception of Bulgaria, the surviving Eastern European members of the Warsaw pact do not have large muslim minorities and they too refuse to accept muslim migrants. Our former, communist enemies have had the lesson of the former Yugoslavia to reinforce their memories of a millenia of fighting Islamic invaders.

      Trump needs to cut a deal with Putin. Trump needs to validate Russia’s seizure of Crimea (which is predominantly ethnic Russian) in exchange for allying against Syria and Iran. Trump also needs to either withdraw from NATO or at least eject Turkey to prevent our so called allies from becoming The Arsenal of Islamic Theocracy. Trump might also cut a deal for the Western Alaska aka East Siberian purchase.

    One thing Russia, China, India, and Southeast Asia have on common is that they have both ceded vast swaths of their territory to muslim invaders. Both have suffered under the predations of violent muslim jihadis for centuries.

    The muslims have been extremely effective in framing the manifold jihad actions in which they are involved as “regional conflicts”, “rebellions”, “separatist movements”, etc. They have also been very successful in characterizing those involved as “freedom fighters”, “rebels”, and “separatists”.

    However, when looked at from an historical perspective, they are revealed for what they truly are; well-organized, well-funded, Islamic invasions that are being carried out concurrently all over the planet.

    If non-muslims could see the divide-and-conquer methods that have been employed by the muslims to amazing success for centuries, they might find common ground with those they thought of as bitter foes.
