President Obama put Russian President Vladimir Putin on notice Wednesday evening, warning that further actions to destabilize the interim Ukrainian government will result in consequences from both the United States and Europe.
In an interview with CBS News White House Correspondent Major Garrett , Mr. Obama said it was "absolutely clear" that Russia had violated Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity by annexing Crimea last month, and they continue to do so by supporting "non-state militias" in southern and eastern Ukraine.
Still, the White House has not abandoned diplomatic solutions. Secretary of State John Kerry traveled to Geneva Wednesday evening to prepare for four-party talks with European, Russian and Ukrainian officials. Ukraine is willing to offer amnesty to the armed separatist groups who have carried out violence and seized buildings in the east, if Russia agrees to pullback support for those pro-Russian groups and withdraw the 40,000 troops that it has positioned on Ukraine's border, CBS News State Department Correspondent Margaret Brennan reports.

Here’s the deal.  Putin is going to do whatever he wants.  Never mind any lessons learned in Europe in the “30’s and ‘40’s.  The countries of the free world have a lot  less backbone and a lot less money than it did back then.  Besides, Obama’s busy with other more pressing matters right now, taking care of the more serious, more immediate, threats, like American ranchers.

War on the West: Why More Bundy Standoffs Are Coming

The federal government’s over-the-top police action against the Bundy family ranch is an ominous portent of more to come, as rogue agencies and their corporate/NGO partners attempt to “cleanse” the West of ranchers, farmers, miners, loggers, and other determined property owners.
On Saturday, April 12, the federal bureaucrats backed down. Faced with hundreds of men and women on horseback and on foot who were armed with firearms and video cameras — as well as local television broadcast stations and independent media streaming live video and radio feeds across America — the Obama administration called off the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) operation to confiscate hundreds of cattle belonging to Cliven Bundy, the current patriarch of a respected pioneer family that has been ranching in Nevada’s Clark County since the 1800s.
Supporters from all across the United States had converged on the Bunkerville, Nevada, area in support of Bundy, who is the “last rancher standing” in Clark County, due to a decades-long campaign by federal agencies and allied enviro-activists to drive all ranchers off of the range. After a tense standoff, orders came down from above for the surrounded and outnumbered federal agents to “stand down” and turn loose the Bundy cattle that had been corralled.

Putin should buy out a rancher in Nevada and allow his cattle to graze on federal land.  Do you think Obama would stand up to him then?


  1. "Putin should buy out a rancher in Nevada and allow his cattle to graze on federal land. Do you think Obama would stand up to him then?"

    Ha Ha...no he wouldn't... Our coward in chief is nothing more than Putin's bitch. And Putin knows it.

  2. It could very well be true that Obama has no desire to stand in Putin's way. They have a lot in common, They're both socialists, and neither was born in America.
