    On another topic – why do folks believe all that is said by Stepien and his lawyer the truth – any wild idea in a coverup

    Incessant, and totally unconfirmed, reports that Yanukovych has died of ‘heart attack.’ Would pay zero attention to it until reputable sources – like the US State Department – confirm it.

        Hey Bob, I hope you had a wonderful dinner! I cannot begin to express how deeply grateful I am to you, and LL, for keeping us informed on Ukraine. I also appreciate the fact that you always warn us not to take everything we read as fact/truth.

        • March 4, 2014 at 2:01 am

          Thank you, nath. Very enjoyable dinner. Just wanted to check in for a moment. Back after I do the dishes :)

          Hope you’re having a fine evening.

          And, yes, it is so important for all of us to double, triple, quadruple …. check everything!!

    I see a number of people in my TL who are getting as pissed off about those in media and gop who are criticizing PBO about Ukraine as we are here;

    our job as usual should continue to be: pushing back on the blatant lies (of omission or commission), innuendo, while at the same time promoting PBO’s policy position & agenda

    some of the people who are not impressed by the parade of gop/media liars & back-stabbers include:

    Oh, gag, this crazy loon is still not over this and I fell into her trap by not remembering her name! Quickly blocked her.

      Poor Ms Peggy – she still doesn’t understand the internet – and the compliment she was paid – sad loon.

        I recall Chips and NW made the story about shining a light on President Obama, and this person made it about herself. That’s all we really need to know about the difference between TOD’s interests and her “personal story”!

      Me to JOB. I was so mad I almost went after her but decided if she still didn’t understand what happened she is too stupid to engage. So I blocked her too.

        March 4, 2014 at 11:28 am

        Agree! Almost wrote back something like “you’re not over that, yet?” but she is not worth it. Plus, she’s looking for the attention – which she won’t get from us!

    And it looks like President Obama, called Putin’s bluff:

      It’s a great read susanne – and the true story seems to be floating through the media at the minute – Putin is trying to pull one big bluff – and economically he can’t keep it up – and militarily – if the west decided to confront him – he is also undone.

      Putin’s talk of the anti-constitutional coup – is somewhat similar to Bush’s WMD – but that ship sailed 10 years ago & folks are more disbelieving now – which of course they should have been when Bush opened his mouth.

    yesterday, Bobfr and others here who watched the UN proceedings pointed out the crazy behavior and speech by the Russian UN representative;

    well, based on this BBC report, the same crazy talk is the official line of the russian government & comes straight from arrogant putin himself;

        terrifying is not the word anyone sane is using about Putin’s words. Look at the twitter you have quoted – full of anti PBO statements, anti gay marriage, and pro Palin

        • 107 globalcitizenlinda
          March 4, 2014 at 7:18 am

          putin’s presser is only “terrifying” if you consider that he and the people around him believe the garbage he just said now & yesterday at the UN

          • 108 99ts
            March 4, 2014 at 7:25 am

            And if that person is in your twitter feed I would delete her fast – a first rate RWNJ.

            Putin doesn’t believe what he said – GWB via Colin Powell also said much garbage at the UN – when someone else wants to invade another country, making up lies to tell the UN and his own people – there is a precedent – sadly.

  35. 109 globalcitizenlinda
    March 4, 2014 at 7:09 am

    clearly, putin did not think through the consequences of his actions and is now surprised by the reaction of Ukraine and others;

    garbage from putin’s presser shows he is looking for a way out of the mess he created ;

    ;

    I tend to be thinking along the same lines as this person =>

    • 110 99ts
      March 4, 2014 at 7:26 am

      Imagine that – the man who acts then thinks – maybe made a mistake and is looking for a way out. The man who thinks before he acts – and ignores the RWNJ fools who attack from within his own country – is getting it right.

    US Ambassador To The UN Samantha Power Just Ripped Into Russia At A Security Council Meeting

    By BRETT LOGIURATO – (March 3, 2014)

    ——————————————-

    Let’s begin with a clear and candid assessment of the facts.

    It is a fact that Russian military forces have taken over Ukrainian border posts. It is a fact that Russia has taken over the ferry terminal in Kerch. It is a fact that Russian ships are moving in and around Sevastapol. It is a fact that Russian forces are blocking mobile telephone services in some areas. It is a fact that Russia has surrounded or taken over practically all Ukrainian military facilities in Crimea. It is a fact that today Russian jets entered Ukrainian airspace. It is also a fact that independent journalists continue to report that there is no evidence of violence against Russian or pro-Russian communities.

    Russian military action is not a human rights protection mission. It is a violation of international law and a violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the independent nation of Ukraine, and a breach of Russia’s Helsinki Commitments and its UN obligations.
