Russia Snaps, Accuses UK, Germany And France Of “Grossly Interfering” In The US Election

Source: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-01-18/russia-snaps-accuses-uk-germany-and-france-grossly-interfering-us-election

Having listened stoically for the past two months to accusations without evidence that Moscow “hacked the US election”, and that Hillary’s loss was indirectly due to Putin’s alleged meddling, which resulted in Obama’s expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats, on Wednesday Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov finally snapped, and lashed out at the ongoing US election scapegoating fiasco, saying that leaders and top officials from the UK, Germany, and France have “grossly interfered” in US internal affairs, “campaigned” for Hillary Clinton, and openly “demonized” Donald Trump.

Unlike US accusations of Russian interference, at least Lavrov’s claim can be substantiated with a simple google search of news event in mid to late 2016.

Speaking during a press conference following a meeting with his Austrian counterpart Sebastian Kurz, Lavrov said his angry outburst was because Moscow “is tired” of accusations it meddled in the US election. In fact, Lavrov said, it is time to “acknowledge the fact” that it was the other way around.

“US allies have grossly interfered in America’s internal affairs, in the election campaign,” Lavrov said, quoted by RT.

“We noticed that Angela Merkel, Francois Hollande, Theresa May, and other European leaders” did so. He added that official representatives of some of the European countries did not mince words, and essentially “demonized” Donald Trump during the election campaign.

Among the more vivid examples, last August German Foreign Minister Frank Walther Steinmeier called Trump a “hate preacher.” Reacting to Trump’s statement that parts of London are ‘no-go areas,’ UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said in December that Trump is “unfit” to be US president. Later on, however, Johnson said that Trump’s presidency might be a “moment of opportunity.”

On the other hand, the Russian government has expressed its willingness to work with the US under Donald Trump, Lavrov said. “Trump says that if the promotion of US national interests would lead to a chance of working with Russia, it would be foolish not to do that.”

“Our approach is the same: where our interests coincide, we should be and are ready to work together with the US as well as the EU and NATO,” the minister stressed.

Over the past year, Russia has been repeatedly accused by Washington of meddling in the US election. In January, the US Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) issued a report allegedly proving Moscow had its fingers in the US election campaign. The public was only provided, however, with a declassified part of the paper, which contained no solid evidence. Trump’s advisor on foreign policy during the campaign, Carter Page said that the paper was “speculative” and served “certain political theories.” The US media, citing CIA sources and unverified reports, even alleged that Moscow tried to aid Trump directly to secure his victory.  Trump has rebuffed the allegations, saying it was simply another “excuse” by the Democrats to explain the defeat of Hillary Clinton.

The demonization campaign culminated with last week’s release of a dossier, according to which Russia had “compromising” materials on Trump, suggesting the president-elect is a puppet for the Kremlin.

In response, yesterday Putin warned that he sees attempts in the United States to “delegitimize” Trump using “Maidan-style” methods previously used in Ukraine, and slammed the creators of the Trump report, saying “people who order fakes of the type now circulating against the U.S. president-elect, who concoct them and use them in a political battle, are worse than prostitutes because they don’t have any moral boundaries at all.”

Once again… far more truth comes from our once bitter adversary in Russia.  What Lavrov said was all true.  Of course, when the “fixing” is done for the benefit of a good communist liberal such as the witch, all is quiet on the western front.  If Trump’s penchant for revenge is factual, the leftist puppet leaders of Europe had best beware.

Don’t get your hopes up too high… Trump has trusted KUSHNER as an advisor…

 

Buyer beware ~ all we do is swing from one type  of jewfest to another type of jewfest… From that perspective, Trump isn’t much different from Richard Nixon with Kissinger in his ear…

I understand what you’re saying.  But, we must hold off judgement until we see what Trump actually does.  The Kushner position is a puzzler… along with the Goldman Sachs Mnuchin appointment.  Perhaps Trump has the Vito Corleone philosophy… “Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer”.

To catch a thief you must think like a thief.

To catch the swamp monsters in our govt, you need people who know how to play the game.

This is not Trumps strong point, politics and all their machinations.

Trumps needs help, and who BEST to help but the very people who know where the bodies are berried, who’s involved with who and how to follow the money. This is the fight that’s seen Presidents assassinated.

Who knows if it can even be done. Americas best and only hope is Trump.

LEVERAGE, is what Trump will use to clean out the grifters. We must be patient and supportive. If Trump turns coat,I believe there will be pitchfork and civil war. Not a good choice

Guys for the time being Trump can’t touch the Zionists but he can avoid them destroying him by having some of them around him.

Maybe if all go well and Trump proves to be a men of his word if he gets re-elected then he can start to take on the real establishment since at that point he will have established his own circle of influence of wealthy people!

Remember one needs powerful people to take on powerful people! One can’t do it with the likes of Kerry but T-Rex and Mattis on the other hand are a different story. Give him time!

Lavrov plays 3D chess while his counterparts in the west play Göbbels Big Lie game in their echo chamber.

Anyone who has listened to Putins’ speeches as well as those of Lavrov sees a clear unobfuscated and rational basis for everything they say as well as a consistency which should shame the west.

Their reserve in the face of sanctions and echo chamber lies of the western “diplomats” is awe inspiring. They are the only adults in the room full of entitled crybabies who believe that their entitlement alone is enough to win in the court of public opinion.

I am very grateful to both of these heroes as they will prevail and now finally have an adequate and serious counterpart in the west: Donald Trump.

Dear Mr. Lavrov, thank you for staying patient as long as you have.

I don’t think those merican “authorities” have even a microscopic speck of intelligence or shame. They are still squirming and twisting like a stepped on worm, inventing moar fictitious claims, and adding to the earlier ones that have been proven lies. Looks like a little child in front of his Mother telling the big lie and Mommy ain’t buyin it. People are starting to wake up to what has been going on. Russia is gaining credibility with TPTB’s help. I like both Putin and Lavrov. They skip the drama and paint the picture the way it is without being demeaning to anyone. The mericans do it to themselves the way they conduct themselves and that is the strongest insult. The Russians don’t capitalise on it either. Merica is in self destruct mode which is like a cornered rat. That’s what scares me. When a thug starts losing an argument due to lack of intelligence he’ll bring out the gun.

the idiotic west has even dispensed with that requirement.

there is only one conclusion to reach and that is that they are ALL operating on the Hillary Clinton method of having both a public and a private policy agenda.

they are globalists. this is what they keep hidden because none of their constituency is ready to play in the water with those sharks.

they are murderous, psychopathic liars who have a religios agenda of globalism. they have no honour nor adherence to basic human values or truth.

their days are numbered and we need to be strong until they are fired and tried for the very real treasons they are engaged in.

Wildbad, you and the others are right. What we should all hope for is a War Tribunal that would try and find all of these depraved people guilty and they should be executed. Any National Leader that participated in the Iraq war should be arrested and tried. Starting with Papa Bush, Clinton he and she, Baby Bush, Obama (esp Obama with his sham Nobel Peace Prize). Include England, France and Germany. V. Nuland and Soros.   They ALL knew that Iraq was not engaged with weapons of mass destruction. Hell, the Iraqis are still clan leaders who can’t agree on the time of day. The Tribunal should then include Libya. The Hag should swing for that alone.

Should any Court examine the evidence they would find that all of these shits profited handsomely from their crimes. They are to a man (and woman) worse than Hitler. He was focused on eliminating what he thought was aproblem. These assholes go from Nation to Nation to rape and pilage. After they steal the oil, steal the sovereign gold and run heroin out of Afghanistan they just walk away and leave a country so broken that it will take 100 years to heal.  In Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Ukrain, Syria…they all approved drones to kill indiscriminately….bombing weddings, funerals, schools and hopitals.

They should all be held accountable for what they’ve done

I’ll bet what really happened, is that Putin did hack Hillary’s unsecured server, and has been blackmailing her and Obama for years. Which explains the backing off the Syrian (Putin ally) red line, the favors for Putin ally Iran, Putin’s fearlessness in invading Ukraine, and the sale of 20% of the US’s uranium to Russian interests. Then Clinton blamed the Wikileaks revelations (which didn’t come from Russia) on the Russians. In the meantime Obama/Clinton have been working to keep it covered up by granting immunity to all the IT staff and telling them to shut up instead of letting people know what happened.

Apparently the Democrats think we’re stupid enough to believe that if Putin had dirt on Clinton, he’d release it to help elect Trump instead of using it to blackmail Clinton as president.

Clinton’s lack of IT hacking knowledge (where she thought the public’s lack of knowing she had a server) led her to be careless with her server. I’d bet the Russians picked up her server and email address via IP traces of communications to wireless routers.Then hacked her server. And Clinton wiped it with BleachBit to cover it up.

Radical Marijuana Cognitive Dissonance Jan 18, 2017 3:40 PM

Yes, Cognitive Dissonance, some people “just notice it more now-a-days.”

I emphasize that sociopolitical systems which were ALWAYS based on being able to enforce frauds have been enabled by exponentially advancing technology to become exponentially more fraudulent.

It is that exponentially increasing fraudulence that some people are noticing and remarking upon. However, the more one thinks about that, then the worse that becomes, especially because that is becoming worse and worse, so much faster and faster …

The best it ever got was about in 1967, when the maximum amounts of new petroleum resources were discovered. After 2008, it became impossible to rationally maintain any shreds of idealistic optimism for foreseeable finite futures. Civilization was ALWAYS based on being able to back up lies with violence, which ALWAYS suffered from the underlying problems that being able to do so does not stop those lies from still being false. Globalized Neolithic Civilization is based upon integrated systems of legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, while those enforced frauds are automatically becoming exponentially more fraudulent, due to the previous systems of paper “money” frauds, backed by gunpowder weapons, rapidly becoming electronic “money” frauds, backed by the threat of force from atomic weapons.

Between them, the USA and Russia have many thousands of atomic weapons, about a couple thousand of which are kept on hair triggers … Meanwhile, “money” made out of nothing is “paying” to strip-mine the natural resources of the planet as fast as possible, regardless of the longer term consequences. Furthermore, there are no feasible ways that could be stopped from happening, since, in every short to medium term increment, being able to continue to enforce frauds are the most socially successful strategies, despite that doing so has the longer term consequences that everything thereby becomes exponentially more fraudulent.

On deeper levels, sociopolitical systems based on being able to enforce frauds require most people who adapt to living inside those enforced frauds to deliberately ignore the principle of the conservation of energy, and misunderstand the concept of entropy in the most absurdly backward ways. On more superficial levels, those who successfully adapt to living inside of sociopolitical systems based on being able to enforce frauds are thereby selected to become the best available professional hypocrites.

Since the established systems ARE based upon enforcing frauds, and those ARE becoming exponentially more fraudulent, it is also the case that the people who ARE the most publicly significant expressions of those systems are becoming exponentially more hypocritical. Since those entrenched systems were ALWAYS based on being able to back up lies with violence, but that never stops those lies from still being false, indeed, “there was never a big difference between fake news and ‘real’ news.” However, since that ALREADY existing fraudulence is ALREADY becoming exponentially more fraudulent, some people “just notice it more now-a-days.” In particular, more and more articles published on Zero Hedge are about the ever increasing, and therefore, more flabbergasting, hypocrisies which public figures are presenting!

It is no longer possible for anyone to completely comprehend, nor fully imagine, systems of globalized electronic monkey money frauds, backed by the threat of force from apes with atomic bombs. But nevertheless, those combined money/murder systems are automatically becoming more and more criminally insane at about exponential rates, while the various people who are the spokespersons for those systems are becoming exponentially more hypocritical, as their public statements diverge from relatively objective facts to increasingly astonishing degrees. Indeed, pretty well every day, there is some news story published which ups the bar for record breaking levels of absurdly backwards hypocrisies … BUT, we ain’t seen nothing yet!

His Amazon company is this week licking Trump’s shoes and other parts north of there promising it will provide Trump’s nationalist America with thousands of new jobs.

WE WON! THEY LOST!

Did we win it all? Who knows. But we won in that we drove the criminal Bush family away from the centers of power. We won in that Trump’s people now own the Republican Party, not the Bush family. Antedeluvians like the coward McCain will soon sink again into the tar pits from which he arose. We drove the Clinton crime family out of the centers of power, no small feat against that lying, raping, murderous krew. We’ve illuminated the fact that the Obama presidency was just Stepinfetchit in drag.

Not hard to figure out why Lavrov is Putin’s foreign minister. Good BS detector, direct language, and sarcastic when it counts to making a solid diplomatic point. He doesn’t shoot blanks and every word is carefully measured. Kerry, by comparison, is a complete embarrassment.

That Lavrov and Putin both speak English (Lavrov with solid authority) gives them an enormous advantage in their understanding of the west. There is virtually no western leader who has comparable command of Russian. (Merkel may, if she’s East German.)

The spectacle of Obama wagging his finger at the Brits and warning them the US would punish them if they voted for Brexit is perhaps the most shameful exhibition on record of a US president publicly attempting to influence a foreign election by intimidation.

bh2 L Bean Jan 18, 2017 1:51 PM

Putin’s press conferences may be a worthwhile model for how ours are conducted.

Rather than towering over the people he talks to, Putin sits down and converses with them as equals (not in power or prestige, obviously, but as fellow human beings).  And the man does have a quick wit — an indespensible asset for any head of state.

Watching some of Putin’s filmed encounters with the vastly incompetent and corrupt realties of Russian life is also refreshing. Sample comment to incompetent factory management: “You were all running around like cockroaches when you heard I was coming here today.”

He literally takes names and makes it clear he will be kicking butt if they continue to fail their own people.  Production in Russia is (correctly) regarded as a social duty, despite the necessity for profit. Those who say Putin is corrupt may very well be right. But he’s also operating within a culture of corruption that is overwhelming and deeply ingrained.

The same was true of socialist Huey Long, and there are still people in Lousiana who admire his achievements in terms of tangible improvements to civic life and the economy of that state. Ideology never trumps accomplishment, but does often try to substitute for it. It seems Trump understands that kind of corruption, also.

Ivanka Duck’s dad is our soldier Ryan and we’ll never abandon her and her dad!

And the Bad guys are those Hillary, CIA, Mutti, Hollande, EU coalition that want to kidnap Ivanka and Dad.

But Rooster Cogburn won’t allow dat!

The 7 th cavalry who wears the yellow ribbon is the Putin/ Breitbart alliance!

Go get em the 7th; we don’t want to lose Custer in Dakota pipeline Sioux wars again to those multiculti bandits !

This game looks truly like a Holywood blockbuster; where is Jack Bauer or dirty Harry or big Jake or Terminator or Rambo (who have I left out?) ?
