Putin Suggests US Hackers Framed Russia…

Oh yeah, the bros are working it.  Fake news from Trump and hackers from anywhere (including the USA) from Putin. Hmm, the dictatorial thugs seem to be in lockstep. Be suspicious, very suspicious.

NBC NEWS – Russian President Vladimir Putin found himself on the defensive Friday when asked by NBC News’ Megyn Kelly to explain his earlier claim that private “patriotic” hackers could have interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Putin, in an exclusive interview with Kelly, insisted the hackers could have come from “anywhere” and then they could have — in a savvy and professional way — shifted the blame to make it look like Russia was behind the hacking.

“Hackers can be anywhere. They can be in Russia, in Asia…even in America, Latin America,” he said. “They can even be hackers, by the way, in the United States who very skillfully and professionally shifted the blame, as we say, onto Russia. Can you imagine something like that? In the midst of a political battle?”

“By some calculations it was convenient for them to release this information, so they released it, citing Russia,” Putin added. “Could you imagine something like that? I can.”

“They might have read a certain article and if they are in the patriotic mood, then they start making their contributions the way they see it positive towards the Russian image,” Putin told reporters, according to an Associated Press translation.

Echoing remarks President Donald Trump made on the campaign trail, Putin also questioned the need for NATO.

“NATO was established as a Cold War instrument in the fight against the Soviet Union,” Putin said through a translator. “There is no longer any … Soviet Union.”

The U.S. intelligence community believes Putin ordered the hacking, most likely to undermine Hillary Clinton and boost Trump. But Putin has steadfastly denied the allegations.

Trump, during the campaign, repeatedly denied Russia was trying to tip the scales in his favor. He finally conceded in January that Russia has waged cyberattacks on America but insisted they had “absolutely no effect on the outcome.”

Our carbon footprint says it all.
This graph shows the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, as measured at Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii, from 1958 to today. In September, scientists at Mauna Loa announced that C02 levels had likely surpassed the threshold of 400 parts per million permanently.

Hey, the BLOTUS knows better than the scientific community, right? Then there is THIS.

The Narcissistic Neanderthal

Like an archaic humanoid dinosaur
     you  plunder through life taking no prisoners,
             with your philosophical knuckles dragging on the ground.
You are a dying breed born of privilege and tenacious greed,
      tendering little in life other than your selfish need.
              What is it you seek in life other than your very personal comfort?
You never give a sideways glance to anyone with no chance of adding to your                                                       
      circumstance;  narrow minded cruelty subsidies the shutdown of any                               
               tenderness, allowing emotional banalities to supersede  integrity.
Your karmic debt is too cancerous to be free - 
      a lover of women among inept men, 
                but piteous fodder for contempt among strong women.
Neanderthal, you tossed love off the tongue like spit flung and stung my cheek with   
      runny dung....in disgust I turn away at your insipid attempt at manhood.  
                So many conquests, so little time.
The pittance you gave is but a trail of unwitting  shame,
       littered like Gretel's bread crumbs into a wilderness of pain...
                How sad you thought such a pittance could buy my soul.
I am no longer a member of your colonial servitude,
        and you are an inept fossil long past its prime.
                 From this moment, Narcissistic Neanderthal,

I am free.

Trump Being Trump…

Woo Hoo! Add another item to Trump’s list of oops. Either this guy is stupider that many thought or else he is so delusional that he thinks because he’s “president” nothing can touch him.

AXIOS – One day after tweeting that he had “not spoken to Roger [Stone] in a long time,” President Trump called Stone after watching him on various news shows in the aftermath of the firing of FBI Director James Comey, per The New Yorker.

The reason for Trump’s call: Simply to tell Stone that he did a good job on television — not surprising, as Trump is known to value loyalty above all else.

But a wrinkle: Because Stone is a witness at the center of the federal government’s Russia investigation, this could compound potential obstruction of justice concerns for Trump. One of Obama’s White House ethics lawyers told The New Yorker: “Trump just added another item to the investigators’ checklist.”
