The reporter for Russia Today, Gayane Chichakyan, is skeptical of the claims of the Obama regime that Russia violated Turkish airspace and asks if the Obama regime will be providing proof. Spokesliar John Kirby, second only to Josh Earnest in his willingness and ability to condescendingly and brazenly lie at will, gets personal while refusing to offer anything more than unsupported regime claims.
It’s like the science being declared settled on “climate change.” We can either accept what we know to be their lies as truth or be attacked as flat earthers. Either way nothing more than unsubstantiated claims will be forthcoming. Salute that tree, soldier; bow to the rainbow, sailor. Russia flew into Turkey.
Obama State Dept Spokesliar – Russia Did It, Trust Me, Believe Me
In making it personal, the snide and arrogant Kirby nips at the reporter, saying, “You’re so good at asking these questions that it’s the United States’ responsibility to provide proof of what Russia’s doing, which I find incredibly comical. It’s not our job to confirm for the Russians what they’re doing.” It’s their job to make accusations, just not to provide anything to back them up.
After some unintelligible crosstalk Kirby reads a statement that a Russian combat aircraft violated Turkish and NATO airspace on January 29th. They “Call on Russia to respect Turkish airspace and cease activities,” urging the Russians and Turks to talk to each other.
Of course they do, Obama wants Russia to vacate the premises and hand him the keys to Syria so that he can create his caliphate. Russia isn’t going to do that, Kirby. They might discuss that ISIS black market oil that the US has been protecting through the tree sodomizer rules of engagement that don’t allow oil to be targeted.
She notes that Russia denies having done what the US claims and asks for proof. She asks if the US will provide the proof they supposedly have. Kirby falls back to the “it’s not our responsibility to provide proof to the Russians for something they did wrong” position.
After restating the recommendation that Turkey and Russia communicate better, Kirby said again that the regime has no doubt and they won’t lower themselves to provide validation to anyone. Besides, the whole world knows that we can trust Obama – he’s still half black, and he hates America; he’d never lie.
She asks Kirby if it’s acceptable to make an accusation without providing evidence to support it. Kirby engages in the favored Democrat past time of semantics saying, “It’s not an accusation it’s a fact. It’s a simple fact.” He then dismisses her, calling on the next reporter. She adds, “Based on what? Can you provide pictures of that, anything?” Kirby replies, “I’ve answered the question.”
If only she’d asked Kirby if it was okay to make “facts” without providing evidence to support them. The same way Russia did with the lines of tanker trucks hauling protected ISIS oil that Obama made off-limits to airstrikes. Those were accusations supported by real facts, something the criminals in the White House can’t be bothered with.
While it may be true that we have no reason to believe the Russians, after four years of Hillary Clinton, now three of John Kerry, and seven of Hussein Obama, the delusions of credibility at the State Department are what is truly comical, Mr. Kirby.
