President Obama Congratulates Putin in 2012, Media: “Statesman” – President Trump Congratulates Putin in 2018, Media: “Treason”…

I doubt there is a more current exhibit for Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) than a comparison of identical action by President Obama and President Trump and the media narrative therein.

President Trump calls Russian President Vladimir Putin, the media go bananas:

“Sham” shouts Politico – “Shame on him” shouts WaPo – “Treason”, claims CNN – “Shocking”, proclaims NYT

Meanwhile, flashback to 2012 when President Obama called to congratulate Russian President Vladimir Putin and invited him to be a guest at Camp David:

President Barack Obama talks on the phone with President-elect Vladimir Putin of Russia while aboard Air Force One en route to Richmond, Va., March 9, 2012. Alice Wells, Senior Director for Russian Affairs, is seated at right.

2012 – “President Obama called Russian President-elect and Prime Minister Putin to congratulate him on his recent victory in the Russian Presidential election. President Obama highlighted achievements in U.S.-Russia relations over the past three years with President Medvedev, including cooperation on Afghanistan, the conclusion and ratification of the START agreement, Russia’s recent invitation to join the World Trade Organization (WTO) and cooperation on Iran.

President Obama and President-Elect Putin agreed that the successful reset in relations should be built upon during the coming years.

The President said that he looked forward to hosting President-Elect Putin at the G-8 Summit in May at Camp David. The two leaders outlined areas for future cooperation, including strengthening trade and investment relations arising out of Russia’s pending accession to the WTO. President Obama and President-Elect Putin agreed to continue discussions on areas where the United States and Russia have differed, including Syria aand missile defense. President Obama and President-Elect Putin agreed to continue their efforts to find common ground and remove obstacles to better relations.”  (link)

        two months is an understatement. comparing the mueller investigatory report and the doj i.g./outside prosecutor investigatory reports may offer some clarity to the confused over what has really been going on in government in the last few years. and thus produce some insight into the value of the legacy media versus the alternative internet based media.

        but the real deal, the opportunity to change the world’s mind, will come when the events of 9-11-01 and the, what, six or seven wars in the sixteen years that followed, not to mention the full frontal assault on individual liberty across the western world and more, are laid bare for all to examine. that is where trump must finally go if he is to truly emerge victorious.

    I wonder if there really was a “leak” about an advisor telling Trump not to congratulate Putin, as the media has reported and Lou Dobbs nearly had a seizure over.

    What better way to counter the President’s trolling than with a false leak, nobody can verify.

    The benefit of Trumps congratulations was Fox finally canned Ralph Peters.

        Neocon globalist warmongers are upset that PDJT called putin .
        Are You ? Why ?
        A false leak,placed at the right time simply “triggers” the already loony left sending them all intospazz ‘splodey-head orbit… “on que”.. allowing PDJT in their heads for free!
        If only in a small way, it counters the 24/7/365 propaganda they spray..I’m good !
        The casual observer may notice ALL MSM talking heads were triggered and using the same talking points is in sync, in itself should send up a red flag..
        I just don’t see a downside here .

      FOX canned Peters! Wow! You just made my day. Of course they have canned is butt before only to bring him back. If they want an intel contributor bring in Buck Sexton an actual ex CIA Analyst who used to brief President Bush (W that is). Lot more credible than that pompous Lt Col Peters gass bag. Must not have been the sharpest tack back in the day if he retired as a LtCol. Just my bias showing.

      Been visiting my Son and Grandkids the past couple weeks. They cut the cable a couple years ago so no FOX news for Grandpa! Can’t say i miss it that much.

      Did Fox announce that they canned Peters? The initial reports elsewhere quoted Peters as saying he quit because he could not tolerate the pro-Trump bias of Fox News (his words or something similar). I’m glad to see him go, but if it’s true Fox proactively ended their contract with him that’s all the better.

    Classic example of paid narrative writing to white wash BS to fool the masses. It is a statement for all intensive purposes sounds Statemens-like on the surface but what does it mean… Could easily mean one thing to American public (its designed self referencing narrative) and could just as equally mean something entirely else to those tasked carrying out the goals contained within(talking around the issues as defined by the definers).

    Little known fact… There was a Federal Law that made it illegal to dissimate to the American public direct discussion of, “How the Dept of State and other Federal Agentencies talk in foreign countries directly and officially(in foreign media markets) and ability to report back this communication within the context of what was said overseas back to the American domestic market.

    It was called the Smith–Mundt Act.
    Now, in truth there is a diuble edged sword to the intent of this Act. (The one stated in the Act and the one I stated)(The saying the Devil is in the details)
    It was repelled by Obama in 2013 but surprise surprise how much you want to bet it did the opposite… that is prevented foreign media to report to american public the contradictions of what USA govt was saying within the USA market about what it was saying in foreign markets)

          • MTK says:

            Just a happy coincidence.

            I did really mean implications, however the spellchecker on my phone pop-up’ed the word implementation and I selected it.

            On hindsight, now that you(mark) meationed it… implementation was a really great word choice for what I was saying.

      Especially when they wax on about Stormy Daniels and other gals – the news media and politicians, pundits have no credibility because they were quite all right with whatever Bill Clinton did.

      I saw one of those “news articles” today on msn when I went online – an article about Joe Biden claiming that he would do something or other to President Trump over what he supposedly said to or about women . . . but he had NO problem with Bill Clinton OR Hillary Clinton enabling Bill Clinton . . .

      but worst of all, he was Vice President at the time of Benghazi and he was apparently okay with it, that did not faze him in the least.

      Hi Filia,

      If it helps, may I offer a little friendly word of two.

      When you place your emotional well-being first, (and largely ignore the media) you consciously control what you chose to be influenced by, ergo, freedom from emotional turmoil follows.

      For sanity sake, I did so 3 years ago and I feel liberated.

      Best wishes🤗

            “unprecedented privilege”

            There was nothing privileged ore unprecedented about this. This is standard operating procedure. Modern, every day technology used in news reporting and across the world by people every day. Where do you think all of their paid call in consultants are sitting?

            The only thing different is that President TRUMP, who was playing to WIN, utilized this Tactic in his Tool Belt and ILLary DID NOT.

            Because ILLary tho’t the election would just be handed to her on a platter. She believes her own hype. She is low energy and lazy. She can’t even make it up and down stairs, let alone talk intelligently on a phone call to news outlets. In almost every interview you currently see her on she is sitting. She’s “written” and “sold” a book every year since she began running in 2015, and she’s due for another any day. She couldn’t even make it through a 9/11 memorial ceremony on a beautiful day in NYC.

            ILLary had every opportunity to do the exact same things that President TRUMP did, AND MORE. She had the sycophant media, the corrupt deep state, the corrupt sitting President, and his entire corrupt team working for her. She and she alone blew it. They blew it by making her their nominee, and they know it. They blew too much smoke up their axxex until they believed the lies they told everyone else for a year and a half. That President TRUMP had no path, no chance in h311.

            But they still want to give her a participation trophy. She “won” the popular vote. Sorry, not only did you cheat to get that, but you still fail to understand simple math and the rules of the game. It’s never about the popular vote, it is about the electoral college

            The popular vote sounds like something you wanted in high school. And she only got that in what, 3 or 4 states out of 57?

            Maybe next time you should surround yourself with smart people like President TRUMP did, instead of a bunch of bumbling idiots continually on the dole.

            President TRUMP showed up, every day, every hour, every minute. THAT is called WINNING!


        • TwoLaine says:

          GEE, this certainly looks like the playbook they are utilizing at this very moment and have been since the election. Shutting down at least half of the country’s free speech. We knew their plan.

          The problem is, they can’t shut down the President on social media. Many have tried. ALL have FAILED, miserably. 😉 🙂

    I missed yesterday that a transcript of the President’s actual Phone conversation with Putin, on this topic, was leaked as well. As I said before, the leaker is NOT (or necessarily) in the White House because if this transcript was leaked, then any phone discussions about any memo’s given the president was also captured and this is likely the source of the “memo” leak. Catching the leaker is going to be extremely difficult because the phone calls run through Verizon as well as the NSA monitoring system.

    It will be interesting to see who’s scalp is claimed over this incident. Before attacking members of the White House Staff, people need to take breath to see where this goes before howling about the president’s staff.

      My gut feel is that the mechanism used by the “source” of stories in the MSM has just been exposed and it may not even be inside the US Government. What is stopping Progressive operatives like Clapper, Brennan, etc. from cultivating their positions with the actual telephone carriers? That position would enable them and their media employers to gain access to any and all conversations emanating from anybody in the government or any supporters of the President.

          I think you nailed it. The Ben Rhodes rinky-dink embed plan is not the REAL survival plan. Obama created a REAL survival plan – to SURVIVE Trump. And the heavy ACTION-TAKING embedding is in all these unaffected contracted groups and secret agencies, that can GET THEM BACK IN using violent methods.

          Anything Brennan touched – and they probably eliminated all records – is where the infection is festering. Vegas, Charlottesville, Parkland, FIU, Austin – all of it will lead to the actors still operating after the Obama and Brennan lights theoretically went out.

          Bet a lot of it is connected to the State Department. Rex was too much of a Boy Scout. He didn’t see that the subversion of State and CIA was like subversion of the Boy Scouts by Marxists and pedophiles.

          This explains the SD guy pushing back on Charlottesville. BOOM. They know THAT road leads to taking them down. Gotta make it “tin foil”.

          But it ain’t “tin foil”.


      • wolfmoon1776 says:

        Montgomery. That’s IT!!! Montgomery shows us what Brennan is up to now!

        Remember Brennan’s start? He was ROGUE to help Obama get elected, using Montgomery. You can BET he’s been operating CONTINUOUSLY in ROGUE from the moment he left.

        Explains Austin. BOOM. Rogue op using a “McMuffinoid” – homeschooler fits profile of a super-loyalist order-follower who won’t question things, then finish with his last remote while police are closing in.

        It will be WAY bigger than Brennan. SAMANTHA POWER has to know details.

        Obama confidently left a shadow intelligence network, both INSIDE and OUTSIDE. Pompeo can clean up inside the agency, but Brennan’s old network of outsiders and contractors is humming along merrily, STRONGER than when they were doing the Montgomery work.


  15. Sassy says:

    They’ll probably say that the situation is different because Obama’s intelligence community didn’t “warn him” to NOT congratulate Putin. How dare Trump disobey the ORDERS of his out-of-control intelligence community?

    That ain’t all. Says an article about Robin Williams groping females of his Mork and Mindy cast: ‘There was nothing lascivious about it, in his mind. It was just Robin being Robin, and he thought it would be funny. He could get away with murder.’ – Daily Mail, 22 Mar 2018

    That could literally be a paraphrase of what Trump said about celebrities getting away with grabbing women by the puzzy. The world forgives Robin Williams but never Donald Trump.
