US: 'No evidence' of Russia pulling troops back

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House says there is "no evidence" that Russia has withdrawn troops from its border with Ukraine.

The comments from White House spokesman Josh Earnest came shortly after Russian President Vladimir Putin (POO'-tihn) said his country had pulled troops back from the border. Earnest says the White House would welcome a "meaningful and transparent" withdrawal if it were to take place.

Putin also urged insurgents in southeastern Ukraine to postpone their planned referendum Sunday on autonomy. Earnest said the U.S. believes the referendum should be canceled, not postponed.

Russia has had about 40,000 troops positioned on Ukraine's border for several weeks. The U.S. says those forces are there to stir up instability in Ukraine, not for regular training exercises.

The games go back WAAAYYYY further than either of the Bush's. Both sides are guilty so don't think it's red or blue.

It has been stated, repeatedly, and from knowledgeable sources, that our "White House" is crippled... under the control of Moscow, due to the "skeletons" in our "president's" closet. It has been reported, supported by extremely credible and highly placed sources, including multiple Law Enforcement Officials, that our "president" is in office in direct contradiction to Constitutional Mandates.

Yet, Liberals control the Media, fully, and have squashed all the reports and evidence that was put forth. All persons who have pointed out the obvious inconsistencies and fake presentations, have been labeled "KOOLAIDE DRINKING LOONEY TOONES WHO SEE LITTLE GREEN MEN and TALK TO THEMSELVES..." when, in fact, those in the know are fully aware they are entirely correct.

Moscow, you may be certain, did their own investigation, before, during and after the elections, and have the clear and undeniable evidence necessary to de-throne the administration.

Yeah, save it.

By "knowledgeable sources," I assume you are excluding yourself. I think you are high, but I don't think you are placed. Thank god.

Most of "his promises" require congressional approval, something Boener and others said they would never do, even "....if we agree with the legislation's intent." The president is not a dictator or king. Congress needs to approve most everything. Please get your head out of the sand and point your finger at the real problem.

Every time the JEWnited States of Israel or our sold-out semi-communist Media makes a statement, it happens to be FALSE. The idea is to make money for the Banking-Military-Industrial complex that makes our people go out and risk their necks, while they kill off a few thousand innocent bystandfers, only to make more money for the bastards for the above stated ":complex. That is why we had a stupid World War One, why Wilson sent US Marines (1917-1921) to help install Communism in the USSR, why F. D. Roosevelt helped Winston Churchill who owed much money and wanted more, to begin - with the help of Stalin (whom F.D. R. admired greatly) the world's worst War ever - 50,000 killed to make more money for the same bastards as ever, at the B.M.I. complex.
Neither the media or AOL knows a thing about Ukraine and its 3 regions since 1300 AD - very different in their goals... They care not about truths or consequences as long as it makes yet more money for those who rob us blind.

Join the discussion? What discussion. Most are so uninformed all they keep muttering is" it's Obama's fault." Read history and maybe you will understand Putin and Russia.
Satlin staved the Ukrainian's farmers to death and replaced them with Russians. Once the Ukraine become part of NATO, which Russia is very worried about, the Ukraine's may have a country without Russia.Has WW 2 taught any nothing at all?
Obama earned his peace prize when he started withdrawing our troops and sought a peaceful option with Syria.
The Ukraine has a west side and an east side. One very rich black soil and is productive in agriculture, The on the other side rich in minerals and they have seaports open all year long the Russians want .As always Russia will try to take this by force and blood shed.

The "Crimea" is full of Russians, who want to be a part of Russia.

They do not grasp the LIBERAL agenda, whereby they are supposed to "WANT" to live with those they do not care to... "whether they like it or not".

Liberals do not understand, this is exactly what happens when you FORCE people to "like" something and FORCE people to "want" to sit Boy-Girl Boy-Girl, Black-White, Black-White, Straight-Gay, Straight-Gay... when they just plain do not care to.

FORCING people and, TELLING people, what they DO like and DON'T like only goes so far. Making it a CRIME to have likes and dislikes and choosing people's company for them, under THREAT OF FELONY HATE CRIMES, only lasts so long.

These RUSSIANS in Crimea wanted to be RUSSIAN... not Ukrainian. They did not want to be FORCED and TOLD WHO they were and WHO they were supposed to "like".
