Obama To Putin: If You Like Your Russian Sanctions, Here Are Some More - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture


Having underperformed Russia by almost 20% since unleashing the first set of sanctions and sell recommendations, President Obama has decided enough is enough and has wielded the credit market ax in this round of sanctions for what the world is really not sure. As we noted here, of course, Russian firms can handle restricted access to US debt markets (probably better than American firms). Nevertheless, the teleprompter is up... the people are excited, and President Obama is about to explain how these sanctions (unilaterally placed on Russia since Europe did not back them) are different and better and "fair"...

So far so good...


*  *  *

And now we await the blowback, as just like the last round of US sanctions merely accelerated the Russia-China holy grail gas deal, so this one should should lead to a promptly completion of the BRIC bank. The only good outcome, considering the Fed is desperate for someone, anyone, to sell bonds, is that Russia and its $110 billion in TSYs, should promptly oblige.

And if Russia would be the enemy, obama should know to keep his enemies close.

But I just can't seem to forget that discussion before his second election about "more room to maneuver"

I can't seem to get rid of this feeling that it's all orchestrated...

America is really cornering itself all the way here.

He's against the bricks
Europe is changing sides and by october they'll have open relations again when they need the gas
The are stepping on china's toes...
Dropping the allies israel and the saudi's...
ISIS going after the Iraqi and Iranian oil field and I think they'll go up in smoke some day.
Than the fracking for oil in the US.. Perfect way to get the dollar back to petrodollar uber status if like china needs to buy oil from the US when Iraqi fields will be shut off.
China now has the gold but what if the US would say it wants gold for it's oil when all the other fields are burning? Anybody ever read about the optium wars and how England managed to take all the silver and gold back from the silk and tea trade?

It's like America is really trying to pick a fight with everybody here.
Economically, Obama is destroying the foreign relations and that will harm trade pretty hard.

Obama ***hates*** America. And he promised he would "fundamentally transform" her.

What he's doing worldwide is what he's doing nationally - sowing chaos, hatred, discord, strife. At least America doesn't have the genocide - yet. 

I'm not much for Christian eschatology, but I think what he's doing would pretty neatly fit into any definition of "antichrist".

As much as I get a little nauseous just by the sight of Obama and this becomes very quickly a desire to vomit when words come out of his mouth, it does seem outrageous from someone on the outside the claims that he's a muslim when he's got more than his share of those that are on the opposite side of the fence surrounding him. When I get this list of muslims in his Administration to verify such claims, I'll shut up!

It is definitely heating up and I find it hard to believe this is just theatre.

In Eastern Ukraine the indiscriminate killing has continued against civilians and 'maybe' the reason for these latest sanctions is because one THIRD of the Ukie army has been cornered in a pincer movement in the south of Ukraine pinned against the Russian border on one side and the Novorussian forces on the other spanned out for a couple of hundred miles.

The ONLY reason I can see is pure smugness and arrogance on the part of US leadership.

This is a plausable reason. A disconnect from the real world situation as well as an arrogance that the US is still as strong and respected in the world as it once was?

That could account for it.

YTD the Russian markets have gotten clobbered. This sounds an awful lot like Pearl Harbor to me.

One link to the big bull market run this past week is the performance of Israel's Iron Dome. If a 90% kill rate can be achieved of all incoming rocket fire "this has profound military implications" one being the bulk of all military hardware is now obsolete.

While what you see are rockets being taken out in the air...what you don't see is the counter battery fire.

Those rockets can allegedly hit speeds in excess of 5000 mph....almost 8 times the speed of sound. If sixty miles per hour is a mile a minute...six thosand miles an hour is a mile in one second!

Hope you've got your running shoes on!

What is this peculiar, childish obsession with criticizing Obama for using a teleprompter? Reagan, Bush, Clinton all used them, in fact Eisenhower was the first in 1952; and - LOL - Palin criticized Obama for using one while she herself was using one. See below...

"Dwight Eisenhower was the first U.S. president to make use of a teleprompter, in the 1952 presidential campaign.[4]"

Reading from a Teleprompter, Sarah Palin mocks President Obama for using a Teleprompter.

Obama's a puppet - the Ziocons who control him are gonna get their war with Russia.... which is all about Russia's support for the Shia Axis - Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Iran... which stands in the way of Anglo-American-Zio total control of the ME.

Zbig has his own reasons, mostly having to do with blaming the Russians for what the Bolsheviks [mostly non-Russian until mid-Stalin] did as much or more to the Russians themselves than they did to the Poles...

Putin is shrewd, but you wonder if he quite knows how much the neocons are in power even under The One - and how much they run the Deep State.

Good stuff at

to name a few... especially consortium in re the neocons...

And a reminder, you surly cunts - Crimea did not have a right to rejoin Russia, but by gum, Kurdistan has every right to be free....

{naturally, I do agree Kurdistan should have their own state, but naturally the Israelis and the American Deep State don't give a flying fuck about the Kurds themselves}

Equally amazing is the media blackout of the shit going down in east ukraine, you know...the massive killing of ethnic russians by the military.

I mean - all the major news media swim like a school of fish on topic after topic after topic - and it's not controlled?

That fucking awful massacre in Odessa - with the Ukrainians shooting at people trying to escape the flames... photos and video of them shooting at them on youtube and liveleak and elsewhere deeper down....... radio fucking silence...

can you imagine if Putin could have been tied to that, instead of one of Ukraine's pro-putsch Jewish oligarchs [and a dual citizen, and ultra zionist, by the way - so there's no chance he's in touch with the Israelis on shit, right?]


Globalists, Transnational Zionists, International Bankers, the MIC, a criminal CIA, more than half the country still convinced a dozen arabs did 9/11 for a dude in a cave...

It'd be nice to get a W on something one of these days - but the news is all bad, and no one is coming to save us.

Obama gives the apearance that he is on some sort of mood stabalizing drugs. Putin appears to have a plan, Obama apears to have an ego tha exceeds his brain cell count.

Aren't you supposed to kiss the Allies' arses before you turn up the heat on the adversaries?

So Putin is polishing his nukes.

What happened to all those suitcase nukes?

This is leading to a very dangerous game of super-power chicken.

This guy must be trying to win a bet or something.

Everytime you think he cant do something more irrelevant and make it sound like a big deal, he does.

Please please please stop accusing Obama!  Just watch any of his speeches, Head Left, Head Right, Left-Teleprompter, Right-teleprompter, he reads s-l-o-w-l-y and he stutters. He's told "what" to read, he probably doesn't know or care about what he's reading.

In reality America has few military options in Russia's backyard unless it has the backing of a full and enthusiastic NATO and that is very unlikely. Europe has reason to be unexcited about a possible long and expensive conflict. While still trying to recover from a recession Europe would face fuel shortages and a massive spike in the price of natural gas. 

Currently Russia supplies much of the gas used in Europe, this gives Putin a great deal of leverage. If an actual ground attack were to occur few see the Russians as likely to rollover as other armies have when America approaches. More on this subject in the article below.
