Putin is now facing a Onoe tent individual in the WH who won’t simply fawn over Putin and disparage our intelligence agencies in the process.

Putin on Thursday pointed at the U.S. history of slavery, slaughtering Native Americans and the atomic bombing of Japan in World War II in an “it-takes-one-to-know-one” response.

Putin continuing to whatabout and say 'west is worst' just like he learned to do in his Soviet days.

U.S. national intelligence director’s office released a report finding that Putin authorized influence operations to help Trump’s reelection bid. 

That Russians have supported Trump and his Republicans has been reported by 'western' intelligence for years. It's not surprising pro-authoritarian Republicans continue to believe the Kremlin and global far right media's claims, not those from the 'west'.

“a lot of honest and decent people in the U.S. want to have peace and friendship with Russia.”

And it's not a surprise that most of them are far right Republicans, many of them the sort of 'good people' Trump defended in the 'Unite the right' rally. It's no surprise that Russia's keyboard warrior armies have targeted white nationalist groups and the NRA.

Here's an idea: screw Putin. He's a murdering thug and Russia is (to use the late Senator McCain's term) " A gas station masquerading as a country. "

Russia badly needs the West but has nothing to offer beyond petroleum products, which can be resources elsewhere.

If Putin wants to continue to poison and murder his political opponents and cyber-terror his way across the West, isolate him.

No Davos, no G-8, no summits, no nothing.

In only two months, Biden has Putin holding his jock strap.

trump looks even weaker than we previously thought by comparison! Biden who is quite average will look like the greatest US president second to only Pres. Obama of this generation.

LOL!

He won’t even face Putin to take him off his offer because Biden knows he can’t, no shame in it.

Biden: "Putin will pay a price."

Trump: "Every time [Putin] sees me, he said: 'I didn't do that.' And I believe — I really believe — that when he tells me that, he means it."

Pure fantasy that continues to fuel the minds of Democrats and helps with their continued Chinese government support, but sadly that tactic is started to fall apart.

How? Lol

Trump: "Every time [Putin] sees me, he said: 'I didn't do that.' And I believe — I really believe — that when he tells me that, he means it."

Trump is not in office, so once again and besides looking like a fool, what will Biden do? Will he take Putin on his offer or will Biden run his mouth and not take his challenge?

Pure fantasy

Back to disparaging our intelligence agencies, I see.

A new report by the U.S. intelligence community on Tuesday says Russia sought to help former President Donald Trump in last year's presidential election. 

https://www.npr.org/2021/03/16/977958302/intelligence-report-russia-tried-to-help-trump-in-2020-election

that continues to fuel the minds of Democrats and helps with their continued Chinese government support, but sadly that tactic is started to fall apart.

The U.S. side, led by Secretary of State Antony Blinken, accused China of behavior that endangered global stability.

https://japantoday.com/category/world/tough-talk-at-first-face-to-face-us-china-meeting-in-biden-era

While many Chinese resent Trump's attacks on their country, they also believe his reelection would benefit China as it would lead to overseas talent coming home, boost the confidence of Chinese people and tear apart the Washington-led anti-Beijing coalition.

Not to mention all of Trump’s products made in China. But, yeah, the democrats are pro-Chinese.

I do enjoy living in a fact-based reality instead of some hyper-partisan bubble.

Intelligence agencies: President Trump, here is the evidence showing Russia meddling in our elections.

Trump: But Putin said he didn't do it, and I believe him over you.

The same intelligence group that tried to oust a duly elected former President....just can’t make this up.

A Trump supporter complaining about anyone running their mouth is not to be taken seriously at all!

Or...the people that think the current President has the guts, fortitude or the mental dexterity to deal with an adversary as sly as Putin.

It does amaze how a Trump lover will prioritize it and everything over belief of such truths as the killings by a Putin autocracy exists.

But then...insurrection and racism was never a Trump thing and he was a great president. LOL.

Yet you are because the intelligence agencies didn’t try to oust Trump.

This coming from a Trump supporter is beyond on the pale and not to be taken seriously.

They did. You forgot Strzok, Page, Ohr, Comey, McCabe? Of course they did, so I take their reporting with a grain of salt.

Well, millions of us don’t take the intelligence agency seriously.

You mean the people who moves together Trump at the behest of the DoJ.

Until they support you and then you cite them as if they are infallible. It’s sophomoric.

It's probably true there are millions in the US who have shown they are anti-American, who prefer Russian style authoritarianism to US democratic systems, who trust reports from the Kremlin instead of those from 'western' intelligence agencies.

Putin sure misses the good old days....

When he could meet with friendly US officials "hundreds" of time....

*Investigators have found that Trump and at least 17 of his campaign officials and advisors had more than 100 contacts between Trump associates and Russians, belying the campaign’s November 2016 claim that “there was no communication between the campaign and any foreign entity during the campaign.” *

Yep.....the evangelical Christian AKA “right-wing white, fundamentalist Republican" and Putin's communism are too "Peas in a Pod"!

...or Chinese style authoritarianism, even now China was just slamming the crap out of the these delegates and they allowed it, wonder they’re happy with these people in power.

to US democratic systems, who trust reports from the Kremlin instead of those from 'western' intelligence agencies.

The agencies that tried to drum him out of office....yeah, definitely some deep heartfelt trust issues there.

And?

belying the campaign’s November 2016 claim that “there was no communication between the campaign and any foreign entity during the campaign.” 

The former President had the absolute constitutional right not divulge his conversation with any former leader especially when he’s not President and even as President his conversations were not subject to public consumption, as with Obama and the Mullah talks or Biden with China. Now if there was proof that Trump engaged....oh, there wasn’t after 2 years 18 lawyers, all Democrat donors, 500 witnesses and 500 subpoenas so there goes that talking point.

Obama had Iran

Biden has China

Ok so basically All US Presidents have powerful world leader friends....

False Equivalency! Neither of your examples openly asked a foreign country to help them get elected as president by hacking into their opponents emails then lied about all the communication between foreign operatives, him and his associates to the public and press.

See the logic?

False Equivalency!

According to the one-sided think tank left, it is.

Trump didn’t ask that either and it’s amazing that the entire main stream media that was so crazily obsessive with trying to report an every single word that Trump said to every single person into every single leader and to leak every single conversation that he had to the press with Biden, The media doesn’t go ask any questions, every question is a softball question for example what kind of ice cream he likes or about his dogs and that’s it, so we don’t know what was said with Biden or with Obama, because the media just will not even try to ask these questions, so we don’t know what was said, but we do know is that these leaders Obama cozied up to the mullahs, Biden cozied up to China those are indisputable facts. All I am saying is if the media will go after Democrats the way they go after conservatives there would be a lot less complaining, but liberals can’t talk a hold of Mic just because they liberals

See the logic?

There’s your logic.

And?

And the question - why hundreds of meetings with Russians? Care to explain it to us?

Weak dodge. He divulged it - saying it didn't happen. They met hundreds of times - then lied and said they didn't. Remember Don Jr and Jared's meeting with the Russian intel operative at Trump Tower - first they denied (didn't happen), then they lied (it was about adoptions)... Just one of hundreds... Hmmmm....

But What About - Thanks for agreeing with me.

Only one was/is business partners with them...are you wearing your Chinese-made Trump tie?

No, I can’t and neither could Mueller and his team after two years of trying to find out, but since there was in actually nothing that was really constitutionally illegal, he had to close his case.

Weak dodge.

Liberals keep saying that when they can’t find an answer to an annoying question.

But What About - Thanks for agreeing with me. 

That Biden has China and Obama had the Iranians, sure.

Only one was/is business partners with them...

Speaking of Joe’s son and brother...
