putin calls out an obamamandian big lie and nobody reports it...,


ICH |  Russian President Vladimir Putin said that in an interview (part 1 and part 2) with Germany’s Das Bild, published on January 11th, but the press has ignored this very serious charge – an accusation of deception, bad faith, outright lying, on the part of the US President.

Here is the historical record:

On 17 September 2009, the White House issued «Remarks by the President on Strengthening Missile Defense in Europe». He said there: «This new ballistic missile defense program will best address the threat posed by Iran's ongoing ballistic missile defense program… Our clear and consistent focus has been the threat posed by Iran's ballistic missile program, and that continues to be our focus and the basis of the program that we're announcing today».

All the rest of Putin’s account is likewise entirely accurate.

US President Barack Obama lied, about a very important matter. The people calling him out on it should be more than just the Russian President. This is an issue – World War III – that affects the entire world.

There is no issue that’s more serious than this. But, where is the press on it?

Only one English-language site carried Bild’s English-language translation – the rabidly anti-Russian Business Insider, which was founded by the Wall Street fraudster, Henry Blodget. Wikipedia says of him: «In 2002, then New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer published Merrill Lynch e-mails in which Blodget gave assessments about stocks which allegedly conflicted with what was publicly published. In 2003, he was charged with civil securities fraud by the US Securities and Exchange Commission. He agreed to a permanent ban from the securities industry and paid a $2 million fine plus a $2 million disgorgement». His site’s headline for this article was «Putin defends Russia's recent aggression, blames US and Europe for rising tensions». The headline for the same article at Bild was: «PUTIN THE INTERVIEW: ‘For me, it is not borders that matter.’»

The Blodget site posted five reader-comments to the interview: all were rabidly anti-Putin, such as, «The man is a Machiavellian sociopath. Just what Russia has always had, and probably needs»; nothing was commented about the lie that Putin alleged to have been asserted by Obama. All of them ignored it.

In other words, there was no press-coverage of the US President’s lie. Obama had asserted a globally mega-important lie, which displays Obama’s building up toward a war between the United States and Russia, and doing it under the false pretext that the US is preparing for a war against Iran (instead of for a nuclear WWIII against what is actually the world’s other major nuclear power, Russia – and while constantly demonizing and lying about Russia’s leader); Putin called the US President on that single mega-lie, and the press ignored this entire mega-important matter, which could end in global annihilation.

What kind of ‘press’ is this? What kind of ‘democracy’ is this?

It’s even worse than that.
