President Trump Tip-Off to Putin Thwarts Major Terrorist Attack In Russia…

WHITE HOUSE – President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia called President Donald J. Trump today to thank him for the advanced warning the United States intelligence agencies provided to Russia concerning a major terror plot in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Based on the information the United States provided, Russian authorities were able to capture the terrorists just prior to an attack that could have killed large numbers of people. No Russian lives were lost and the terrorist attackers were caught and are now incarcerated.

President Trump appreciated the call and told President Putin that he and the entire United States intelligence community were pleased to have helped save so many lives. President Trump stressed the importance of intelligence cooperation to defeat terrorists wherever they may be. Both leaders agreed that this serves as an example of the positive things that can occur when our countries work together.

President Putin extended his thanks and congratulations to Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director Mike Pompeo and the CIA. President Trump then called Director Pompeo to congratulate him, his very talented people, and the entire intelligence community on a job well done!  (link)

    Love this news. Working together is important. Having said that I had previously read “Lets take a stroll” and was sickened by the report. So right now I would trust the Russians more then I would our own government. Other then Trump and his admin of course. Sent President Trump a Christmas card yesterday a first for me. NOW time for a drink!

      Working together to save innocents,yes….but it is very unwise to trust Vladimir Putin:

      There is more that could be added to this — always a good idea to inquire into why the Russian people cannot afford food when exports to Saudi and other Gulf states are so high, why they have their healthcare increasingly rationed or simply unavailable.
      And why so many Americans are so convinced about what they hear in regards to the great savior of Russia, Orthodoxy, and the West (could it be propaganda???? maybe!)

            Read the OIG report I posted below about that — while the FBI should have been more on the ball (namely in knowing who they were dealing with vis a vis the info), the OIG report noted that the FSB did not hand over all the information on the Tsarnev brothers. The FBI took the information they were given perhaps a bit too trustingly, thought they were more of a threat to Russia than U.S., a bunch of our people died, Russia comes out and says it gave us information of so many times which was spread by the usual media suspects (tellingly not saying more than that), and….Hillary comes out and makes a big speech about it (remember: Hillary and Obama are not friends and one of Hillary’s big campaign gigs was that she would be tough on terrorism and could “handle” Russia).
            Also, follow the money — Trump was not the one who made Putin and his friends in Russia rich…that would have been the Clintons.

            At the very least, start following some money trails. Birds of a feather flock together, or so they say.

            Vlad should probably thank our President, circumstances being what they are and everything(see what that post I posted says about the situation in Russia as of now…think they might have let in some IS people? remember that Iran, their ally, gave a lot of financial aid to said IS, and that right now said ally and Russia are in a bit of a tiff with each other over spheres of influence in Syria/Lebanon).
            Our President is a very humane man and did the right thing — he at the very least deserves a nice Christmas card for his good deeds.

          I have no problem with “Russia doing its own thing”….if that includes not being a potential globalist menace (which their government most definitely doesn’t have a problem with, just as long as the Russian people don’t catch wind of it…see the links in that comment; like I said, they check out, but please do your own investigations) and if it truly is in the best and educated interests of the Russian people (please do check out the price of bread in St. Petersburg and where Russian grain imports are going). I have nothing against the Russian people (just like I don’t really have anything against Europeans or Asians)…but I don’t have to like their governments. You could say that I find much sympathy for the people, as no one should be tossed in prison for speaking out against things they find wrong; no one should have to risk ruining their lives for protesting something (my issue with the left here is that they would do the tossing and the ruining; they are quite entitled to speaking out…but not chimping out).

          But I’m not going to get on my knees and slobber all over Vlad; I don’t trust him.

          But you are correct: Trump has once again done a masterful job…probably moreso than many might guess.

            “if that includes not being a potential globalist menace” In my research I found that much of the world doesn’t trust the United States and believes we are a threat to peace.

            Our CIA has a history of interfering in elections of other countries and when the election doesn’t go the way we wanted, they facilitate a coup, revolution or an assassination.

            Look at the countries in North Africa and the Middle East that suffered revolts and coups due to American (Obama) interference. Who instigated the Syrian Civil War, you got it the USA again, with John McCain cheering on the rebels. Unfortunately, the rebels turned out to jihadist that morphed into ISIS. (This fact has mention discussed here at CTH.) Still, we went on arming them.

            I know the story is from Russia today, but go to the links from which they base their article.

            Off the top of my head I can think of four recent military actions by the Russians (there may have been more, but I can’t think of them at the moment). The Russians went to Syria at the request of the Syrian government. Relative to the incursions into the Georgia, Crimea and Donbass, we should look at NATO’s actions prior to the incidents. And then there is this.

            Putin isn’t perfect, neither is Trump, but both have the interest of their countries and their countryman had heart. I can respect that and hope that both will work together for peace.

        Or maybe what you are referring to is just propaganda against Putin and Russia. There is a lot of that going around. Did you know that Trump colluded with Putin to win the election? /s/

        This picture makes me sick. (Caveat: I raise horses). Before anyone gets “OMG! Look at that!”, check into how badly the Red Army treated the captured priceless Polish Arabians in WWII.

        Also, remember the great Russian writer, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, in Crime and Punishment describing the Russian peasant beating the horse to death. That description was schooled by a deep understanding of the brutal savagery of Russian peasant life.

        In closing, for my fellow Treepers who are not horse enthusiasts, the rider is looking down the horse’s off shoulder. This is a serious fault in show jumping. You see a lot of “pros” do it because they think it looks cool. Your weight generally follows your eyes, so this habit can through the horse off his stride, cause him to bobble before the jump, jump flat, crash into the jump, touch a rail, or fail to pick up the correct lead on landing.

        Always look to the next fence, throw your heart over, and your horse will follow. Kinda like we are doing with President Trump and MAGA!

Read up on what happened during the Civil War to the thousands upon thousands of horses and mules that could no longer perform what was expected of them, most often because they were relentlessly pushed to exhaustion. And then there is the matter of wild mustangs out west that were rounded up for many years to be slaughtered for dog food….

    The liberals make suggestions and threats of assassination, hoping that someone on the Liberal side will kill President Trump and they can get away with their COUP by blaming it on some fall guy.

    It is interesting that they are accusing Trump voters of violence when we have patiently waited and stood down even when physically attacked, hoping that after a year they might at least figure out that President Trump is our duly elected President.

    All the liberals are doing now is trying to get us to attack them by using the word COUP. They are having such great results destroying themselves that we can just get more popcorn and watch the 3 Stooges comedy they are playing out. No one has ever accused liberals of being smart. Soros is cunning and heartless, Obama is obedient and can read a teleprompter, Hillary is evil and greedy and Bernie is just a supporting actor who is delusional.

    Their Communism never works, so they have to start a Civil War in order to take a country over. It has worked for Soros very well up until now. This time he is playing with a different group of people. We know his game, we know his plays and we know that there is a new game in town.

    Communism is over. Soros is a leftover from the last century. Looking at him is like looking at an old wolf that has lost his teeth, has arthritis, can barely breathe and is covered with mange. He used to be scary but now there is not enough money in the world to buy his power back. Destroying everyone and everything so that you are the last man standing on the pile of ashes that once was a world is an empty and pathetic goal. Soros is just a sad and empty man who has never produced one good thing in his lifetime. Soros the Destroyer is now on life support and even that is being removed. He is quickly becoming Soros the Destroyed.

    President Trump is setting up a new world-wide goal. He is teaching everyone how to arrive at a better outcome and have real fun working together.

    Instead of using the old “divide and conquer” rules of destruction, President Trump is building the foundations for peace, cooperation, mutual respect, growth and prosperity for all.

    Building is so much more rewarding than destruction. Creating a country that everyone wants to live in is a lot more fun than fighting. Leaving the world a better place than you found it so that each generation can add something more exalted satisfies the soul.

    Building the first floor of the Trump Tower on the American Constitutional foundation constructed by our Founders as an example for the world is a real and immoveable legacy for the future of our world.

    God Bless you President Trump. God Bless America.

    Merry Christmas and a REALLY PRODUCTIVE AND HAPPY NEW YEAR to all !!!

The HHS guy (Price?) was a bit of an exception, but I think the swamp bears some of the responsibility for undoing him. The black hats worked like crazy to stop Obamacare repeal. I think they targeted him in a big way, and we won’t find out for years what exactly they did to shut him down.

      Putin remains “Russia First”. He has to – he has a tough job. A nation that has never really known true freedom, and never freedom from corruption. It spans the majority of time zones, sits on all sorts of resources it can barely exploit, and has borders with the good, the bad, and the ugly. Meanwhile, everybody seems to want to shut off its only warm water access, which basically sucks anyway. It has a history of being invaded by people who SHOULD know better but NEVER listen to common sense. Everybody EXPECTS Russia’s trust and NEVER earns it.

      Not to mention if they actually do work towards diversification their economic base so as not to rely upon oil and gas so heavily a lot of technology, equipment and support will be needed.

      Win, Win.

    Bravo.

    The interaction between countries to assist one another is a benefit to all people of said countries.

    Better friendships, better lives, better economies, destruction of the globalist regime.

    Yup, better all around.
