«In 2009, US President Obama said that the missile defense only serves as protection from Iranian nuclear missiles. But now there is an international treaty with Iran that bans Tehran from developing a potential military nuclear project. The International Atomic Energy Agency is controlling this, the sanctions against Iran are lifted – but still the US are working on their missile defense system. Only recently a treaty with Spain was signed, a deployment in Romania is being prepared, the same will happen in Poland in 2018, and in Turkey, a radar unit is being installed».

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.

Here is another passage from the interview that Germany’s Das Bild published on January 11th, of Russian President Vladimir Putin:

BILD: In your last interview with BILD, ten years ago, you said that Germany and Russia had never been as close as in 2005. What is left today of this special relationship?

Putin: The mutual sympathy of our peoples is and will remain the foundation of our relations.

BILD: And nothing has changed?

(Before speaking the next sentence, the President starts to sneer.)

Putin: Even with the help of anti-Russian propaganda in the mass media, Germany has not succeeded in damaging this sympathy…

BILD: Do you mean BILD?

Putin: I do not mean you personally. But of course Germany’s media are heavily influenced by the country on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean.

BILD: That’s news to us.

It’s not news to Udo Ulfkotte, who had for decades been a very successful journalist in Germany, working for the Frankfurter Algemeine Zeitung, and other leading media, but recently quit and went public about his having long secretly helped the CIA and worked for them as a regular propagandist against Russia. Ulfkotte said that it was the only way to get ahead in the ‘journalism’ profession in Germany.

He was heavily criticized, at the time, for having given this interview with Russian television. However, the highly respected political and economic blogger who goes under the name of Tyler Durden, headlined on 9 October 2014, «German Journalist Blows Whistle On How The CIA Controls The Media», and he explained that there was a lot more evidence, from other leading journalists, confirming Ulfkotte’s allegations, just not quite so specific to the anti-Russia angle. It seems that the same propaganda operation of which Ulfkotte had once been a part, was now aiming to smear him by means of the operation’s other ‘journalists’, but his charges can hardly be denied – they’re an undeniable part of post-WWII history, starting with the Cold War but continuing right into our own time. In fact, the CIA had (and maybe still has) an entire operation codenamed «Mockingbird», which was proud of its success in controlling virtually all international ‘news’ ‘reporting’ in the United States and, to a large extent, also in Europe.

There was even a case in which a soaring news-reporting star at CNN, who had already won three Emmy Awards, was fired and blacklisted for having reported that the US and Saudi Arabia were sending tanks and troops into Bahrain slaughtering peaceful Shiites who were demonstrating for equal rights with Bahrain’s Sunni minority, in that nation where a sectarian fundamentalist-Sunni royal family rule the country. Unlike in Syria, where a non-sectarian and anti-fundamentalist Shiite leader, Bashar al-Assad, rules (and enjoys majority support from his nation’s majority-Sunni public), and where the US President, Barack Obama had been planning his overthrow from the moment when Obama had become President in 2009, these demonstrators against Bahrain’s royal family were actually spontaneous, and the United States and its Saudi royal family ally were determined to crush it. But this CNN reporter simply refused to cover up and sugar-coat the ugly reality, that the US were working with the Sauds to crush incipient democracy in Bahrain. So, she was fired and blacklisted for that. No matter how terrific a reporter she was, she couldn’t even get a job in the field afterwards, because she had refused to deceive when and as required to, and that’s the cardinal sin in ‘journalism’, in what American PR calls ‘the Free World’ – as if, after the end of communism in Russia, any basic sense still remains to that now-lying phrase, other than to serve as a basis for the secret war that the United States has continued against Russia after the end of communism there.

Could it really be that the ‘reporters’ for Bild don’t know the score, as they were pretending?

To judge by their ‘reporting’, they know it all too well.

They know the reality; only their readers don’t – and, apparently, won’t.

What kind of ‘democracy’ is this?

Anyone who doubts that the claim to be ‘democratic’ ‘news’ media in a ‘democracy,’ is such a hoax, needs to see this (and especially its pie-chart at 18:20 on that video), from the brilliant Sibel Edmonds, explaining how profoundly corrupt it actually is, so that one can understand how the current reality really works.

Obama’s entire case against Russia, and especially his cases regarding Ukraine and regarding Syria, are lies, but they’re ceaselessly spread throughout the West. On January 17th, at the final Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Debate before voting starts in the Presidential primaries, even the least-hostile-to-Russia candidate in both of America’s political parties, US Senator Bernie Sanders, started from the assumption of Obama’s lies as being truths. For example, he said«And we all know, no argument, the secretary [former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the leading candidate for the Democratic Presidential nomination] is absolutely right, Assad is a butcher of his own people, man using chemical weapons against his own people. This is beyond disgusting».

But actually, Obama, and his then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and the Saudi King, and President Erdogan of Turkey, and Emir Thani of Qatar, had organized that sarin gas attack so as to make it seem to have come from Assad’s forces, in order to provide an excuse for the US to bomb Syria to remove Assad from power. An MIT study of the evidence concluded«The US Government’s Interpretation of the Technical Intelligence It Gathered Prior to and After the August 21 Attack CANNOT POSSIBLY BE CORRECT». Is it possible that even Senator Sanders didn’t know that? Or was even he lying?

    Putin’s wrong! Hillary is a bigger liar.

    • She’s more of criminal against humanity, if even a tiny fraction of The Clintons’ War on Women by Roger Stone and Robert Morrow is accurate.

      No, BUSH is the biggest liar of all.

    oh I’m sure after Obama is gone we’ll be finding out many more of his lies than we dare think possible.. yeah really… if his lips are moving he’s lying..

    Our fake P.O.T.U.S. is an identity thief. They all know. billory and obustout are literally murderers, liars and vile homosexuals guilty of multiple counts of Treason. Trump offered 50 million for the musloid Trojan horse college records. If he is a clown why didn’t he take his money? Build the wall, what country has no borders? Then start to prosecute.

    It sure says a lot when the American people are better off turning to the Russian President for the truth. When that Russian President is more trustworthy than our WH occupier.

  • Paul Sainthouse

    If I see anything on the UK news which I’m not sure about. I go to RT for their take on the incident, which is usually more believable.

    I hate living in the belly of the beast. So I no longer identify as american, I am Irish with plenty of reasons to be pissed off.

  • rhondareichel

    How does this serve the American people? WWIII doesn’t serve me. The overt hostility towards Assad and Russia puzzles me—it just doesn’t add up. Regarding the Ukraine, thousands of ethnic Russians were being slaughtered and we were behind the coup through George Soros so that doesn’t make me proud either….in fact it makes me sick to my stomach. All these regime changes do. It’s dishonoring to our country. Total World Dominance was not what the founders had in mind.

    It’s important you don’t buy it or else we will have a nuclear war with Russia—are our candidates & the MSM clueless— or in on it? I wonder. Surely the senators and establishment candidates know— but what about the outsiders like Carson and Trump….and what would THEY do about it if elected? When you think about it only Rand Paul was warning us….the rest are gung ho & talking smack. Now that he’s out I can only vote for Carson or Trump in hopes that they might change things. But now they are getting “the treatment” trying to push them out….and slimy Ted Cruz is leading the charge.

    What makes these people think they are immune to nuclear radiation? Are they all suicidal?

    Uh, bobo is definitely a liar but he does not have the cajones to wage a nuclear war against any country much less Russia. If Vlad attacks us because of our missile defense systems it’s not bobo’s fault.

  • “PUTIN CALLS OUT OBAMA ON A BIG LIE, MEDIA IGNORES”

    ‘Editor of DNotice Calls Out the Marxist Co-opted Media And ‘Alternative’ Media On A Huge Lie, No One Ignores’

    The following is a discovery I made in April 2015 regarding the Yugoslav ‘civil wars’, and what those wars prove about the institutions of the West…

    Communist control of Yugoslavia ‘civil wars’ gone unnoticed for quarter century.

    Secessionist Yugoslav Orthodox, Catholic and Muslim factions waged dirty wars against each other, neglecting to first wipe out the 9% of the population that attempted to do away with religion in Yugoslavia, proving the wars were orchestrated and controlled by the communist faction.

    Murder, torture and legal discrimination of those professing religious sentiment was so intense under the Marxist regime in Belgrade, that those who professed no religious affiliation increased from less than 10% pre-1945 to a bewildering 32% by 1987…

    ‘Like in most former Communist countries in Central, Eastern and South­‑Eastern Europe, the means and actions applied by the Yugoslav Government between 1945 and 1990 to reduce the influence of religions and religious organisations were quite effective: While there was just a tiny group of people who regarded themselves to be without a religion before the Second World War (less than 0.1% of the population), this number grew to 13% in 1953 and to 32% in 1987.’

    https://web.natur.cuni.cz/ksgrrsek/acta/2009/2009_henkel.pdf

    That 9% constitutes members of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia, the Marxist party that subjugated Yugoslavia from 1945 until the party’s dissolution in January 1990. Before any religious sectarian strife, first there would have been massive reprisals against the reviled Communists who implemented policies to wipe out religion in Yugoslavia. The fact that no such reprisals took place proves that the breakup of Yugoslavia, during the Yugoslav Wars (1991-2001), was manufactured and controlled by the Communists.

    The following is another discovery I made in April 2015 regarding the fake collapse of the USSR, and what that fraudulent collapse proves about the institutions of the West…

    When Soviet citizens were liberated from up to 74 years of horrific Marxist-atheist oppression on December 26, 1991 there were ZERO celebrations throughout the USSR, proving (1) the ‘collapse’ of the USSR is a strategic ruse; and (2) the political parties of the West were already co-opted by Marxists,* otherwise the USSR (and East Bloc nations) couldn’t have gotten away with the ruse.

    ZERO celebrations, as the The Atlantic article inadvertently informs us…

    http://www.theatlantic.com/photo/2011/12/20-years-since-the-fall-of-the-soviet-union/100214/

    Notice, however, the Kremlin staged anti-government demonstrations that took place in Russia (and other Soviet republics) in the years immediately preceding the ‘collapse’, yet ZERO celebrations after the ‘collapse’!

    For more on this discovery see my blog…

    https://sites.google.com/site/deanjackson60/

    The above means that the so-called ‘War on Terror’ is an operation being carried out by the Marxist co-opted governments of the West in alliance with the USSR and other Communist nations, the purpose being to (1) destroy the prominence of the West in the eyes of the world, where the West is seen (i) invading nations without cause; (ii) causing chaos around the globe; and (iii) killing over one-million civilians and boasting of torture; (2) close off non-Russian supplies of oil for export, thereby increasing the price of oil, the higher price allowing oil exporting Russia to maintain economic stability while she modernizes and increases her military forces; (3) destroy the United States Armed Forces via the never-ending ‘War on Terror’; the ultimate purpose of the aforementioned to (4) bring about the demise of the United States in the world, opening up a political void to be filled by a new pan-national entity composed of Europe and Russia (replacing the European Union), a union ‘From the Atlantic to Vladivostok’;** which will (5) see the end of NATO.

    The fraudulent ‘collapse’ of the USSR (and East Bloc) couldn’t have been pulled off until both political parties in the United States (and political parties elsewhere in the West) were co-opted by Marxists, which explains why verification of the ‘collapse’ was never undertaken by the West, such verification being (1) a natural administrative procedure (since the USSR wasn’t occupied by Western military forces); and (2) necessary for the survival of the West. Recall President Reagan’s favorite phrase, “Trust, but verify”.

    It gets worse–the ‘freed’ Soviets and West also never (1) de-Communized the Soviet Armed Forces of its Communist Party officer corps, which was 90% officered by Communist Party members; and (2) arrested/de-mobilized the five million vigilantes that assisted the Soviet Union’s Ministry of the Interior and police control the populations of the cities during the period of ‘Perestroika’ (1986-1991)!

    There can be no collapse of the USSR (or East Bloc nations) without…

    Verification, De-Communization and De-mobilization.

    The West never verified the collapse of the USSR because no collapse occurred, since if a real collapse had occurred the West would have verified it, since the survival of the West depends on verification. Conversely, this proves that the political parties of the West were co-opted by Marxists long before the fraudulent collapse of the USSR, since the survival of the West depends on verification.

    Conclusion:

    The West will form new political parties where candidates are vetted for Marxist ideology, the use of the polygraph to be an important tool for such vetting. Then the West can finally liberate the globe of vanguard Communism.

    ————————-

    * The failed socialist inspired and controlled pan-European revolutions that swept the continent in 1848(1) taught Marxists and socialists a powerful lesson, that lesson being they couldn’t win overtly,(2) so they adopted the tactic of infiltration of the West’s political parties/institutions.
