Putin owns the US MSM

Read a Transcript of Trump and Putin's Joint Press Conference

QUESTION: For President Putin, if I could follow up as well, why should Americans and why should President Trump believe your statement that Russia did not intervene in the 2016 election, given the evidence that U.S. intelligence agencies have provided?

And will you consider extraditing the 12 Russian officials that were indicted last week by a U.S. grand jury?

PUTIN (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): I don’t know the full extent of the situation, but President Trump mentioned this issue and I will look into it. So far, I can say the following things off the top of my head.

Moreover, we can meet you halfway. We can make another step. We can actually permit official representatives of the United States, including the members of this very commission headed by Mr. Mueller — we can let them into the country and they will be present at this questioning.

But in this case, there is a — there’s another condition. This kind of effort should be a mutual one. Then we would expect that the Americans would reciprocate, and that they would question officials, including the officers of law enforcement and intelligence service of the United States, whom we believe are — who have something to do with illegal actions on the territory of Russia, and we have to — to request the presence of our law enforcement.

Heh! Played like a fiddle. Smirking the whole time.

Reciprocity!

RUSSIA!

The MSM. Your intelligent (great ?. Kinda like asking BHO what the most enthralling Presidential experience he had enjoyed in first term) defenders of Merica.

And of course, the last thing the Corporate slime of the world will do is allow ANY national sovereignty to Trump their relationship with the US legal system...

Of course, now this old Arnie movie is running through my head.

I do not pretend I know what I do not know.

this evening, framing the whole convoluted, unsubstantiated, tainted Russiagate story as, “Who is Trump gonna believe, Putin or ‘his own’ [sic] intelligence agencies and Justice Department”?

They don’t even try to be neutral anymore, it’s 100% editorializing.

Gleichgeschaltete Lügenpresse, indeed.

@QMS
who are not willing to just believe that Russia has not done something fascist by seizing the Crimea. Propaganda, in softly spoken words, is a matter of both sides.

Why wouldn't there be at least a possibility that pro-Russian support here is as much a bias as the russia-gating of the faux-progressive Democrats?

@mimi Individual moral compass may swing wide of the gestalt. Not to say it is wrong, just a bit beyond the mean. (one foot hot, the other cold means on the average comfortable). Us old knuckle heads tend to learn from past experience. Makes us wise, not average.

@QMS
because I watch German government supported TV. Confuses the hell out of me.
I wonder if Mutti Merkel is an old knucklehead or not. I regret my father is not around anymore. Amazingly he - in the end - could have made a pretty unbiased judgement.

The US "influenced" the presidential election in Russia in the 90s to get Yeltsin re-elected. Yeltsin, drunk and devoid of any working brain cells, then brought extremely bad times to Russia as he allowed the oligarchs to run free and rape the country, as the US, and his good buddy the Clinton Creature (male version) demanded. Russia has gotten herself out of that quagmire and stands tall. But as soon as she asserts herself this made-up crap was bound to to be created. The US spits hate with every breath. "How dare you conspire to attempt to influence our pristine (joke) election." Russia didn't do it but we did do it at least 100 times over around the world.

It's really enlightening, in a bad way, to see the incredible bile and self-righteousness that pundits and politicians display when they are asked about believing that Vladimir Putin had nothing to do with the hacking of the DNC's or HRC's computers. This is mass stupidity that can easily turn into a hot conflict. And no, Russia will not, and should not, accept any punishment from Washington.

Capitalism has always been the rule of the people by the oligarchs. You only have two choices, eliminate them or restrict their power.

soft sidebelly of China is Iran

Russia and China want to stabilze their underbelly incontinence issues.

And the German media thinks the Putin Trump press conference has produced two winners.

And the Real News Network gets their brains pudding-isized.

And mimi will stop reading analysis, because pudding is not my favorite dish.

Wacko

I think people fear uncertainties and unpredictability in their lives the most and welcome therefore any authoritarian fascism, be it from socialists gone mad or capitalists gone mad.
So, who cares if we got two winners, two losers or anything in between. Because anyone who can convince the population to offer them less unpredictability and more security will be welcomed by the scared population. So, any form of fascism is the winner.
