Putin Lashes Out At Obama: "Show Some Proof Or Shut Up"

Tyler Durden's picture

Putin has had enough of the relentless barrage of US accusations that he, personally, "hacked the US presidential election."

The Russian president's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said on Friday that the US must either stop accusing Russia of meddling in its elections or prove it. Peskov said it was "indecent" of the United States to "groundlessly" accuse Russia of intervention in its elections.

“You need to either stop talking about it, or finally show some kind of proof. Otherwise it just looks very indecent”, Peskov told Reporters in Tokyo where Putin is meeting with Japan PM Abe, responding to the latest accusations that Russia was responsible for hacker attacks.

Peskov also warned that Obama's threat to "retaliate" to the alleged Russian hack is "against both American and international law", hinting at open-ended escalation should Obama take the podium today at 2:15pm to officially launch cyberwar against Russia.

Previously, on Thursday, Peskov told the AP the report was "laughable nonsense", while Russian foreign ministry spox Maria Zakharova accused "Western media" of being a "shill" and a "mouthpiece of various power groups", and added that "it's not the general public who's being manipulated," Zakharova said. "the general public nowadays can distinguish the truth. It's the mass media that is manipulating themselves."

Meanwhile, on Friday Sergei Lavrov, Russia's foreign minister told state television network, Russia 24, he was "dumbstruck" by the NBC report which alleges that Russian President Vladimir Putin was personally involved in an election hack.

The report cited U.S. intelligence officials that now believe with a "high level of confidence" that Putin became personally involved in a secret campaign to influence the outcome of the U.S. presidential election. "I think this is just silly, and the futility of the attempt to convince somebody of this is absolutely obvious," Lavrov added, according to the news outlet.

As a reminder, last night Obama vowed retaliatory action against Russia for its meddling in the US presidential election last month.  "I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections that we need to take action and we will at a time and place of our own choosing," Obama told National Public Radio. 

US intelligence agencies in October pinned blame on Russia for election-related hacking. At the time, the White House vowed a "proportional response" to the cyberactivity, though declined to preview what that response might entail. Meanwhile, both President-elect Donald Trump, the FBI, and the ODNI have dismissed the CIA's intelligence community's assessment, for the the same reason Putin finally lashed out at Obama: there is no proof.

That, however, has never stopped the US from escalating a geopolitical conflict to the point of war, or beyond, so pay close attention to what Obama says this afternoon.

According to an NBC report, a team of analysts at Eurasia Group said in a note on Friday that they believe the outgoing administration is likely to take action which could result in a significant barrier for Trump's team once he takes office in January.

"It is unlikely that U.S. intelligence reports will change Trump's intention to initiate a rapprochement with Moscow, but the congressional response following its own investigations could obstruct the new administration's effort," Eurasia Group analysts added.

At the same time, Wikileaks offered its "validation" services, tweeting that "Obama should submit any Putin documents to WikiLeaks to be authenticated to our standards if he wants them to be seen as credible."

We doubt Obama would take the whistleblower organization on its offer, even if he did have any Putin documents to authenticate.

The state of Georgia has experienced and exposed more election hacking than the Cocaine Importing Agency ever will.

The head of the CIA presented his report in Crayon, and Mr Obama made him go back and do it again without the coffee stains, dog dribble.

Seems the head of the CIA is the ONLY person who thinks Russia had anything to do with it, but thats enough for Obama to start playing with his dick.

The rest of the sane world think this CIA guy is fucking nuts, even his bosses want nothing to do with his shit, and the FBI are WTF is this CIA fuckwit talking about.

I find myself wishing the Marines would just arrest this clown. Is that wrong?

Yeah, those guys are pretty thoroughly vetted. They respect the position, not the ass-clown that holds it. I've been in their shoes, and they are just doing their assigned task.

I believe such a task would fall to the US Marshals.

They should send Matt Dillon.  He was un-bribable.

This is real simple.  Obama and Hillary got their asses kicked by Putin in the Ukraine, Crimea, and Syria because Putin was honest and acted out of integrity and real concern for his people, and Obama and Hillary were evil and pathological liars and up to no good, and acted out of a lust for power, control over others, and stealing their resources.  And now the two pathetic losers want revenge.  And this is their vile attempt at trying to get it.  We're laughing at you Hillary and Obama. You are a disgrace to your country and the human race.

You must remember something here - we laid it on for Vlad / Serg. Our governments made it so easy for them to play the white knights, they didn't even need to try. Russian administration is just like any other - the machine - but we fucked up so tragically bad in our foreign policy conduct that just going against the unilateral actions of US / NATO / UN has won Russians major support in Western societies, sick to the back teeth of the media game BS.

Our elites came to believe that the world is theirs. That they can take what they want. Citizenry hasn't been best pleased due to cognitive dissonance ("shining house on the hill" =/= 500k dead Iraqis "worth it"). Enter the Russians: central admin personnel = expert level 120, conservative social values, non-interventionist foreign policy, always stressing legality / due process. They showed us up. Simple as. They were the first to dare point at our naked emperors.

They also have guns. Lots of guns, and big ones too. We will never really fight them head on - we wouldn't stand a chance. Not with their society coalescing around the govt, and ours hating the guts out of our elites. We'd get stomped.

Either he is trying to start a war so he can stay in office (curious how he'd use martial law in this case but it is Obombya...) or he is just trying to fuck Trump up by having him deal with a conflict as he is sworn in.

If it is the former then I am not surprised since it was always indicated this nut would probably look to become a dictator. If it is the latter then talk about a pathetic, petty man to act that way to the person replacing you. I guess he isn't happy with Trump seemingly doing more as president elect than he did as president. 

This guy is nothing but a worthless piece of shit and I regret thinking back in 2008 that he would be an improvement over Bush.

To quote Joseph Goebbels "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” There are several things going on. MSM and deep state were counting on a Hillary Clinton victory and continued US bellicose posturing against Russia. The deep state is also apoplectic about the military debacle in Syria. The ministry of propaganda- corporate media (owned by 6 large corporations; Link: www.wakingtimes.com/2015/08/28/the-illusion-of-choice-90-of-american-media-controlled-by-6-corporations) has been saturating the airwaves and social media with ongoing stories about Russian “hacking” which are probably nonsense. A far more likely scenario is this “hacking” was carried out by people with intimate knowledge of Hillary Clinton’s background, her email correspondence and location of servers where this information was stored/archived, such as people in the FBI, CIA, DHS or State Dept. These hacked messages were then forwarded to Judicial Watch, WikiLeaks or contacts in Russia or China to cover their tracks.

Bottom line is that fierce battles are going on between completing economic factions who run the US. Both groups are pursuing increasingly reckless and bellicose foreign policies which are likely to lead to direct military confrontations with Russia and China.

Obama might as well resort to begging:  Pretty please have a world war with us, plllleeeaaassse?  I'll suck your dick.

az_patriot's picture

I'm a cyber security professional with over 30 years experience and several certifications.  Hackers with apparent Russian ties (not necessarily the Russian government) have been involved in global hacking efforts for many years.  So have the Chinese.  So has everyone else, including the US.

None of this may be true at all, because hackers that know what they're doing never leave a trail behind.  EVER.  And if they do leave a trail, it's almost always a false flag -- which means that what you think you see is not actually where it came from.  It's highly unlikely that sophisticated hackers connected with the Russian government would be stupid enough to leave anything behind that identified who they were or where they operated from.

I'm calling BS on this whole thing, for two reasons.  One -- the "election" wasn't hacked, the DNC was -- and their extremely dirty laundry aired.  We now know for certain that the Democrats are a bunch of liars, thieves, and hooligans that could care less about the country.  And two -- the politicization of this by Obama is nauseating. The likelihood that anyone knows for certain that the Russian government was behind it is about zero or less.

You know, I bet the Russians are kind of enjoying being the adult, civilized side of this spat. They gain more respectability and dignity each and every time Obama opens his cock-holster.

Could you do the world  a favor and dump the following onto the internet:

 

1. Pics of Michael Obama before the transgender operation.

2. Pics of Rahm and Barry hanging out at their old favorite Man Hole club on Halsted Street in Chicago.

 

We could all have a very Merry Christmas knowing that Barry would go off the world stage in the most fitting manner.

Yesterday, Julian Assange emphatically stated on Sean Hannity's radio show that the Russians had absolutely no involvement in the Wikileaks hacks.  I'll believe Assange before the Obama administration or US media shills.  Assange has never been proven wrong.

Mr President you are screwing with a dangerous bear.  The youth of Russia, these really bright kids are grouping up from St. Pete to Vladavostok. Kids that aren't computer whizes are getting the food and tea together for all nighters. Every year on May 8 they go to the remembrances of when they were attacked and the old veterans, men and women, tell them the stories of the hunger at the Seige of Leningrad and the burning of villages as the German armies advanced. So now it is time for them to rally around the motherland.  Time TO HACK THE SHIT OUT OF THE AMERICANS.

You might want to run down to your local ATM and draw out the limit because there is no telling whether it might be working tomorrow or next week.

Draw some water too in a storage container because the water plant might get hacked and shut down too. 

This could get ugly but I guess that's what the CIA wants.

Obama had a virgin birth.  As soon as Kenya found out that Obama's CIA-officer mother was miraculously pregnant, they shipped her back to Hawaii, where she gave birth in the CIA's Limousine Hangar, attended by Three Wise CIA-Officers, while a shooting star (actually, a practice launch of a cruise missile?) flamed brightly over the Islands, heralding the New Age.

He has one month to make as big a mess as possible to leave behind.

In six months, his former presence and most egregious national policies will have been largely erased, along with the emasculated influence of the rump party who put him there.

The Associated Press and the New York Times are repeating, word for word, whatever CIA and CIA-in-Chief says, and then all Vatican-controlled newspapers are printing the AP and NYT articles.  Big dose of CIA in my local newspaper today, and yesterday, and every day since, at least, Merrimack College pointed the way toward The One True Propaganda, with its junior-professor-of-how-Hollywood-and-TV-portray-overweight-people's omniscient and omnipotent list of "Fake News Sites".  Still waiting for the Pope to endorse this list: maybe when Rome Freezes Over.

The article nails an important point. The purpose of this exercise is to sabotage any Trump attempts for a rapprochement with Russia. Peace with major powers is bad for business and Obama's Zionist masters need war to advance their one world government plans. 

Obama knows no moral compass and will do anything, say anything, to get the treats from his masters that a faithful lap dog believes it deserves.
