Obama's Russian Connection - Obama/Medvedev Off Mic Conversation in 2012

For all you people who are horrified by President Donald Trump's alleged Russian connection... remember this?

At a bilateral meeting in 2012 between President Barack Obama and outgoing Russian Prez Dmitry Medvedev, while Obama thought he was off mic, he had this conversation with Medvedev:

Obama: "This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility."
Medvedev: "I understand. I transmit this (inaudible) to Vladimir." (muffled thereafter)

Info taken off the AP YouTube channel:

US President Barack Obama told his Russian counterpart on Monday that he would have more flexibility after the November election to deal with the contentious issue of missile defence, a candid assessment of political reality that was picked up by a microphone without either leader apparently knowing.

Outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said he would pass on Obama's message to his successor, Vladimir Putin, according to an audio recording of comments the two leaders made during a meeting at the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, South Korea.
Obama and Medvedev did not intend for their comments to be made public.

Once they were, the White House said Obama's words reflected the reality that domestic political concerns in the both the US and Russia this year would make it difficult to fully address their long-standing differences over missile defence.
Obama, should he win re-election, would not have to face voters again.
Tensions over missile defence have threatened to upend the overall thawing of relations between the US and Russia in recent years.

Both leaders acknowledged as much in their public statements to reporters following their meeting. Obama said there was "more work to do" to bridge their differences; Medvedev said each country had their own positions on missile defence, but there was still time to find a solution.

And here's the actual video.

No-one seemed to care about this, and they probably still don't, just further amplifies the breathtaking hypocrisy of the left.

Europe's Refugee Nightmare

Yes, there are times when taking in refugees is the right and humane thing to do, but the current Muslim refugee crisis is different. First of all, there are cultural and religious differences that make it almost impossible for them to assimilate and integrate into Western culture. Look at all the no-go zones all over Europe where even police are afraid to go. It's a reality that the die-hard liberal bleeding hearts don't seem to care about. They keep comparing the Jewish refugees back during the Holocaust to what's happening now with the Muslims.  It's not the same thing. The Jews weren't killing people, and/or forcing them to convert.

The bulk of the Muslim refugees are young males, just look at the video below. Factor in that ISIS terrorists have already infiltrated the Syrian refugee population, and you have an extremely dangerous situation. I have no problems with those coming here willing to truly embrace freedom, but they need to leave their hijabs and desire for shariah law back in those countries they have left.

And why have all the rich Muslim gulf nations refused to take in any refugees? This is where they should be placed.

But the following video demonstrates just how scary the whole thing is.

Google has made me remove the video. But you can google for the video on Vimeo.
