Awkward Friday: Obama And Putin On The Big Screen

Tyler Durden's picture


There was a moment of awkward levity during today's D-Day celebration when a cruel TV producer decided to show both Obama and Putin on the big screen at the same time. And the crowd goes wild.

And as covered by CNN:

From that link:


"Whatever name we use, the Western media is a collection of well paid whores.They lie for money, dinner party invitations, and speaking invitations with large honorariums and book contracts with large advances.


I know. They tried to recruit me." ~ Paul Craig Roberts



edit: another PCR quote from that link...I think he's 'right on the money' with this too:



Americans are very susceptible to propaganda. They seem to have a special taste for it. Consider the hate whipped up against Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, a US soldier just released by the Taliban in a prisoner exchange with the US. The hatred and bloodlust that the presstitute media have whipped up against Bergdahl has caused his hometown to cancel the celebration of his release. The press engineered hatred of Bergdahl has spilled over into threats against Hailey, Idaho.


What is the basis for the attacks on Bergdahl? Apparently, the answer is that Bergdahl, like pro-football star Pat Tillman who turned down a $3.6 million contract to join the Army Rangers and go to defend freedom in Afghanistan, came down with a case of doubts about the war. Originally Pat Tillman’s death was attributed to his heroic action and enemy fire. Then it emerged that Tillman was a victim of “friendly fire.” Many concluded that he was murdered, because the government did not want a sports hero speaking out about the war. As Bergdahl is off the battlefield, he has to be murdered in the press–like Russia, China, Iran, Putin, Assad, Crimeans, and the Russian-speaking population in Ukraine.


In America hate and the cultivation of hate is alive and well. But not a single moral virtue is.

If you think he is "right on the money" with that second quote than you, like him, are riding on the edge of irrelevence. Can't people just put on the sunglasses without shoving a pipe up their ass and proclaiming to "see even more through that"? The first quote rocked, the second is a fever dream to entice the Bug crowd.

Sorry, your post reminds me of a tome named 'The Stand'. I suppose that most here haven't read the book, or seen the 4-part video. I have it in original hardback edition.

That was out of part one, 'The Plague'. My quote isn't verbatum, but it's close.

People compare this current situation to a lot of different authors and writers and predictors and pontificators, but I NEVER thought I'd be living a Steven King horror novel. Not in a million years...

No, it wasn't the USA crowd cheering for Obama, it was the Eurotrash butt kissing sycophants of the French Socialist left cheering for Obama.

I think Vlad won that round overall since he wasn't being hissed and booed like a villain in Vaudeville.

My thinking is that the Europeans subconsciously fear him.

After all, he does have his finger on the nuclear button and he does supply them with considerable energy.

@disabledvet, you nailed it. I watched the entire commemoration live on French t.v. - I speak English and French - and it's not at all true that either man was booed. Cspan is reporting that Putin was booed...not true. Both Obama and Putin were shown simultaneously on a large screen and what did the huge audience do? The audience reacted with amusement. Putin wasn't booed. When a French audience boos believe me you know it. The US press has utterly misunderstood the moment. Ridiculous.

France thinks it can have the BEST of BOTH worlds. FRANCE is like the whore in the porno video about 'double penetration' by 'BIG DICKS'. 'Double your pleasure, double your FUN! Dicks in BOTH holes are more fun than ONE!'.

FRANCE niether RESPECTS or LOVES anyone but ITSELF, like the whore that it has become. YOU are being DELUDED.

Vlad was probably a little put off that the Euro Socialist Turds that he's been supply energy to for years have no appreciation for Russia's efforts.

And, the cheering section was extremely weak with only a slight smattering of applause for Ofailure. It sounded like no more than ten people were cheering and maybe only one or two were clapping, and that was when Oturdo turned to thank his butt kissing sycophant(s).

All in all, it was rather weak.............just like Obama.

For anyone who cares, I was privileged to speak on the Barry Chamish radio show this past week. We talked about this very topic ... and even Mr. Chamish stated that Hillary Clinton's lesbian preferences are "old news." But what escapes the public's notice is that the agenda being pursued by women like Hillary Clinton, Victoria Nuland, Samantha Power, et al is part of the Sabbatean Mafia pattern that goes back to the 17th century.

Only marginal conspiracy theorists fail to accept the official version . . . .like these guys:


"In a signed affidavit released at a Capitol Hill news conference, retired Capt. Ward Boston said Johnson and McNamara told those heading the Navy's inquiry to "conclude that the attack was a case of 'mistaken identity' despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary."

It was “one of the classic all-American cover-ups,” said retired Admiral Thomas Moorer, a former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman who spent a year investigating the attack as part of an independent panel he formed with other former military officials. The panel also included a former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, James Akins"

"Fifteen years after the attack, an Israeli pilot approached Liberty survivors and then held extensive interviews with former Congressman Paul N. (Pete) McCloskey about his role. According to this senior Israeli lead pilot, he recognized the Liberty as American immediately, so informed his headquarters, and was told to ignore the American flag and continue his attack. He refused to do so and returned to base, where he was arrested.

Later, a dual-citizen Israeli major told survivors that he was in an Israeli war room where he heard that pilot's radio report. The attacking pilots and everyone in the Israeli war room knew that they were attacking an American ship, the major said.

The only reason Obongo is there is to deliver a progress report. They're both working for the same 'side' per se. If only USA's middle class would become serfs quicker, then Prezzy will get a cookie. Till then, full 'capitalism is bad' and everything Gay is Good press/Hollywood ops continue- because this is a culture war too, not just demilitarization and de-industrialization. It's hard to fight for anything when your fighting-age youth have no actual values or traditions to defend- and no manufacturing base agile enough to produce enough materials to fight. Quite a coup these Progressives are pulling off.

 Such narrow-minded thinking.

This isn't a sports matchup.

Rooting for your team doesn't cut it (unless of course you are on team Obama).

Is your team 'Obama' or the US Constitution? (Which one IS the USA?)

Putin violates no international norms of behavior by standing up to US/NATO militarism, expansionism, renditions, dronings, torture, and aggression.

Are we to root for Obama's support of US/NATO aggression from Iraq/Afghanistan

to Libya/Syria/Ukraine because of team Obama?

If Putin's stance can help the US avoid becoming more of a police state, and reduce the corruptions here of financiers and arms dealers, I know what I should cheer.

Dictator in good standing in the second most corrupt country in the world can help "dictator to be", to be not a dictator and reduce corruption? 

Are you on prozac or something?

The propaganda I smell and feel with 5th sense!

In any case, what I trully see is ZH at some point was sold to RT and acting as arm for Putin's propaganda in North America. Permatrolls reside on this board cheering Russian-Soviet Dictatorship and Sefdom, while booing everyting else.

Again, the question for US citizens should be Russia's foreign policy, not its internal politics. Whether Putin is a "dictator", good or bad for Russia, should be for the Russian people to decide.

If Putin helps expose NSA spying and the US-contrived overthrow of elected governments, and helps thwart provocative and danger-filled NATO expansion, applause is deserved, I say.

It is illogical and arrogant to contend that foreigners who oppose destructive US policies
may be denigrated and dismissed because you don't approve those foreign governments or leaders.

What's right is right, no matter who does it.

And what's wrong is wrong, even (and should be of great concern for US citizens)

whenever done by the US government.

As a matter of fact both Putin and Obama are dirty shirts and none is cleaner than another. Both robbed their own people for money and freedom, but just in different ways.


Whenever someone defends and glorifies Putin make me wonder if the person is an idiot, on prozac or getting paid for such actions. It seems the latter does apply to this board trolls and editor.

Stockman to Obama: Did you pay terrorists? Jun 5, 2014 Press Release ‘Americans deserve to know if the President paid off a terrorist group’ in Bergdahl swap

WASHINGTON -- Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX 36) transmitted a letter to President Barack Obama Thursday asking if the Obama administration authorized any payment to the Haqqani Network terrorist group in exchange for U.S. Army Spc. Bowe Bergdahl.

The Haqqani Network, which held Bergdahl for five years, funds its terrorist activities in part by ransoming prisoners.  The ransom for a uniformed American service member would greatly benefit the group’s terrorist activities.

“The Haqqani Network generally does not release Westerners unless they receive a large payment.  It would be hard to believe they would release Bergdahl in an exchange that does not directly benefit them,” said Stockman.

“Americans deserve to know if the President paid off a terrorist group,” said Stockman.

Four of the five terrorist leaders Obama exchanged for Bergdaghl are Afghan Taliban, not Haqqani, according to Brad Thor.  They also did not seek the release of a Haqqani commander in U.S. custody.

The Haqqani Network demanded ransoms for other high-profile captives, such as $5 million for Afghan diplomat Haji Khaliq Farahi and $15 million for New York Times journalist David Rohde.  Farahi was freed for his ransom, while Rohde escaped before his ransom could be collected.

Their decision to hold Bergdahl themselves suggested to some terrorism experts the group was seeking a large payment for the American service member.

“The fact that Bergdahl remains in his (Haqqani commander Mullah Sangeen Zadran’s) custody and not in Miran Shah under Badruddin’s watch, suggests that Sangeen maintains considerable autonomy within the network and perhaps imagines he will directly earn a ransom payment in exchange for the American serviceman,” writes Gretchen Peters of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in “Haqqani Network Financing: The Evolution of an Industry.”


The Haqqani Network was designated as a FTO on 9/19/2012 (why does that date ring bell besides this?). If any payments went to them it probably went through the State Department to his Brother Malik or directly to Qatar then to Haqqani.

This adds a new dimension to the issue who did 'Qatar' negotiate with for his release, Haqqani and or the Taliban (Afghanistan wing)? The truth is probably both were involved either directly or one directly and the other indirectly.
