Why do Americans hate Putin?

Tucker Carlson thinks he knows. Here’s what he said:

“… Democrats in Washington have told you it’s your patriotic duty to hate Vladimir Putin. It’s not a suggestion. It’s a mandate. Anything less than hatred for Putin is treason.

Many Americans have obeyed this directive. They now dutifully hate Vladimir Putin. Maybe you’re one of them. Hating Putin has become the central purpose of America’s foreign policy. It’s the main thing that we talk about. Entire cable channels are now devoted to it. Very soon, that hatred of Vladimir Putin could bring the United States into a conflict in Eastern Europe.

Before that happens, it might be worth asking yourself: What is this really about? Why do I hate Putin so much? Has Putin ever called me a racist? Has he threatened to get me fired for disagreeing with him? Has he shipped every middle-class job in my town to Russia? Did he manufacture a worldwide pandemic that wrecked my business and kept me indoors for two years? Is he teaching my children to embrace racial discrimination? Is he making fentanyl?” (Tucker Carlson,”Americans have been trained to hate Putin, and will suffer because of it“, Fox News)

Is Carlson right, do Americans hate Putin because the media and the political class in Washington have told them to do so?

Yes and no. Yes, the media and the politicians have played a big role in the demonization of Putin. But, no, they’re not the main drivers of this smear campaign. That designation belongs to the plutocrats behind-the-scenes who use the media to attack Putin in order to promote their own globalist agenda. That’s what’s really going on; the news is being shaped to advance the interests of elites.

After all, what do the American people really know about Putin? Have they ever listened his speeches or read his statements following meetings with other world leaders? Have they ever tuned-in to his marathon 4-hour “ask-anything” Q&A sessions? Have they ever read transcripts of his interviews where he speaks candidly on critical policy issues, culture or religion?

No, of course, not. Everything Americans know about Putin they read in the media. And that’s the problem, because media despises Putin. And they despise him for the same reason they despise Trump, because the media’s wealthy owners see him as a threat to their political agenda. That’s the whole deal in a nutshell. Putin is not hated because he is a “KGB thug” or a “new Hitler”; that’s just public relations gibberish. He’s hated because he is an obstacle to the globalists achieving their geopolitical objectives. That’s the motive that drives this smear campaign. Putin has blocked them in Chechnya, South Ossetia, Syria and now Ukraine. He has derailed their grand plan to “pivot to Asia” and to encircle China with US military bases. He has been a thorn in their side for the better part of two decades and he has thrown a wrench in their loony plan to crush emerging centers of power and rule the world for the next century. That’s why they hate him, and that’s why they use their media to make you hate him, too. Check out this chart from a recent report at Pew Research:

A line graph showing that a record high share of Americans say they have no confidence in Putin

Pew Research: “Russian President Vladimir Putin receives dismal ratings, with only 6% of U.S. adults expressing confidence in him following his decision to invade Ukraine – an all-time low in surveys going back nearly two decades. The vast majority of Americans (92%) have little or no confidence in Putin’s handling of world affairs, including 77% who have none at all.” (“Zelenskyy inspires widespread confidence from U.S. public as views of Putin hit new low”, Pew Research Center)

Are you surprised?

Probably not, after all, the Pew survey just confirms what we already know, that Putin is widely reviled in the US and across the west. But what the report fails to mention is the extent to which Putin is admired in Russia and the rest of the world. Check it out:

“According to Statista Putin holds a very favorable approval rating among Russians averaging between 84% in August, 2022, to 79% approval by Russian citizens and Dual Nationals holding both Russian and United States Passports despite the Russian Invasion of Ukraine.” (Wikipedia)

84% is in the nose-bleed section! No other leader in the world today can claim 84% public approval. And what’s more incredible, is that — after 20 years in office– the overwhelming majority of Russians still support him. How does that happen? How does a modest, self-effacing bureaucrat become the most widely-admired and popular Russian leader of all time?

Here’s more from the same article:

Observers see Putin’s high approval ratings as a consequence of the significant improvements in living standards and Russia’s reassertion of itself on the world scene that has occurred during his period of office….

A joint poll by World Public Opinion in the US and Levada Center in Russia around June–July 2006 stated that “neither the Russian nor the American publics are convinced Russia is headed in an anti-democratic direction” and “Russians generally support Putin’s concentration of political power and strongly support the re-nationalization of Russia’s oil and gas industry.” Russians generally support the political course of Putin and his team. A 2005 survey showed that three times as many Russians felt the country was “more democratic” under Putin than it was during the Yeltsin or Gorbachev years, and the same proportion thought human rights were better under Putin than Yeltsin.” (Wikipedia)

So, according to the Russian people, Putin is largely responsible for Russia’s economic prosperity, the higher living standards, the sharing of oil revenues, the better human rights record and the stronger democracy. They also overwhelmingly support Putin’s military operation in Ukraine. (87%) So, how do we explain the huge disparity between the Russian peoples’ opinion of Putin (over 80% approval) and that of the American people? (92% have little or no confidence in him) Either the Russians are extremely dim-witted and gullible or the Americans are the most weak-minded, brainwashed sheeple on earth? Which is it?

For roughly 17 years, the media has been spewing the same slanderous claptrap (aimed at Putin) they settled on in 2005 and 2006. Did you know that? Did you know that– at one time– western elites and their lapdog media actually liked Putin and thought he was a leader “they could work with”? In other words, they figured Putin would be another compliant stooge like the perennially-inebriated Yeltsin who thrust the country into “shock therapy” and allowed western economists to raffle-off the nation’s most valuable assets, industries and resources to bloodsucking oligarchs who bought them for pennies-on-the-dollar. That’s what they were hoping for, another spineless toady that was willing to sell-out his country to ingratiate himself with Uncle Sam. Instead, they got Putin; a devout Christian, an unwavering conservative and a ferocious Russian patriot.

Can you see why they hated him?

And because they hated him, they ordered their media to make you hate him, too; just like they did with Saddam, and Qaddafi, and Kim Yong Un, and anyone who gets in their way. We all know the drill by now, and it always begins with character assassination; the requisite smear campaign that is designed to persuade the public to hate the enemies of the elites.

But here’s something you probably didn’t know. You probably didn’t know that the demonizing of Putin can be traced back to a precise time and place.

It’s true. Years ago, I looked into it and here’s what I found.

Former senator John Edwards and Congressman Jack Kemp were appointed to lead a Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) task force to determine whether a “strategic partnership” with Russia was still possible in light of policies Putin had enacted that conflicted with Washington’s broader geopolitical aims. When Kemp and Edwards returned from Moscow they published an article titled “Russia’s Wrong Direction” (March 2006)

The authors decided that a “strategic partnership” with Russia was no longer possible because the government under Putin had become increasingly “authoritarian” and Russian society was growing less “open and pluralistic”. The irony of these observations was not lost on analysts who realized that the US has no problem jumping-into-bed with the most authoritarian countries in the world including Saudi Arabia that conducted the mass execution of 81 men in one weekend alone (in 2022) That is an impressive achievement even by Saudi standards. And we should also note that all 81 men were beheaded which further underscores the barbarity of the leaders that Washington regards as their best friends.

The point we are making is that ‘Putin hatred’ and character assassination can be traced back to a particular time and place when US foreign policy elites decided that Putin was not going to be the “responsible stakeholder” they had hoped for. He was not going to click his heels and fall in line like many of the other allies. In fact, Putin had shown his willingness to commit –what the globalists regard as the one unforgivable crime– that is, he put his own country’s national interests above those of the international banking cabal. That, of course, is the biggest “No-No” of all. Here’s a short clip from “Russia’s Wrong Direction”:

Fifteen years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, “U.S.-Russia relations are clearly headed in the wrong direction,” finds an Independent Task Force on U.S. policy toward Russia sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations. “Contention is crowding out consensus. The very idea of a ‘strategic partnership’ no longer seems realistic,” it concludes…

…when President Bush has made democracy a goal of American foreign policy, Russia’s political system is becoming steadily more authoritarian, the Task Force charges. “The political balance sheet of the past five years is extremely negative……

“U.S.-Russia cooperation can help the United States handle some of the most difficult issues we face,” said Edwards. “Yet regrettably, cooperation is becoming the exception, not the norm. This report is a wake-up call that we need to get U.S.-Russia relations back on track to meet the challenges that face both of our countries.”

Consistent with this, the report argues, “Although President Putin is presiding over the rollback of Russian democracy, the United States should work with him to keep Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons and to keep terrorists from attacking either his country or ours.”..

“Since the end of the Cold War, successive American administrations have sought to create a relationship with Russia that they called a ‘partnership.’ This is the right long-term goal, but it is unfortunately not a realistic prospect for U.S.-Russia relations over the next several years,” says the report.

In the short run, the United States needs to see Russia for what it is now. “The real question that the United States faces in this period is not how to make a partnership with Russia work, it is how to make selective cooperation—and in some cases selective opposition—serve important international goals,” concludes the report.” (“Russia’s Wrong Direction”, Council on Foreign Relations)

The report indicates the precise time that western elites gave up on Putin and, (basically) threw him under the bus. And the reason they gave up on him, is because they could see that he was a true Russian patriot. Patriotism is the mortal enemy of globalism, because patriots can’t be “flipped” and the elites know it. They know that you cannot fundamentally change a man who loves his country. These men are not ‘for sale’ and they are incorruptible. Anyone who puts country above the globalist agenda– including MAGA Americans– is the mortal enemy of the globalists. And that is why elites always enlist foppish girlie-men like Justin Trudeau and Emmanuel Macron to do their bidding, because the job requires weak, unprincipled men who are willing to debase themselves in order to serve their masters.

But what was it in particular that convinced the elites that Putin was a lost cause who would always be a threat to their agenda?

Fortunately, we know the answer to that question because the authors listed their objections under four main headings. Here’s they are:

  1. De-democratization: The report finds that Russian political institutions are becoming “corrupt and brittle.” As a result, “Russia’s capacity to address security concerns of fundamental importance to the United States and its allies is reduced. And many kinds of cooperation—from securing nuclear materials to intelligence sharing—are undermined.” (My comment– In other words, Putin was unwilling to impose additional sanctions on Iran, would not support Kosovo independence (which never gained UN approval) and refused to support the Iraq War. Bottom line: He refused to go along with Washington’s genocidal wars and arbitrary redivision of the Middle East. That’s why he was he was dubbed an “unreliable ally.”)
  2. Energy supplies: “Russia has used energy exports as a foreign policy weapon: intervening in Ukraine’s politics, putting pressure on its foreign policy choices, and curtailing supplies to the rest of Europe. The reassertion of government control over the Russian energy sector increases the risk this weapon will be used again.” (My comment– This is true, Putin seized control of Russia’s greatest public asset –oil– and used it to raise standards of living across the board. Privatization is the Holy Grail of western capitalism so, naturally, Putin was condemned for errant behavior. He was also blasted for “curtailing supplies to the rest of Europe” which is also true. He cut off Ukraine’s gas supplies after Ukraine repeatedly siphoned gas from the pipelines and refused to pay for the gas it had already consumed. The authors seem to think that Russia should give away its gas for free but that’s not how capitalist economies work.)
  3. The war on terror: The Task Force finds “a seeming Russian effort to curtail U.S. and NATO military access to Central Asian bases,” a sign that Russia is retreating from the idea that “success in Afghanistan serves a common interest.” (My comment– Putin was extremely accommodating in allowing US troops and weaponry to pass through Russia on their way to Afghanistan. What he opposed was the CIA-backed color revolutions that Washington supported across Central Asia in order to install their own puppet governments that were openly hostile towards Russia. He also opposed Washington’s covert support for Chechen terrorists. Was that unreasonable?
  4. Russia hosting the G8: “A country that has in the space of a single year supported massive fraud in the elections of its largest European neighbor and then punished it for voting wrong by turning off its gas supply has to be at least on informal probation at a meeting of the world’s industrial democracies.” (My comment– Russia follows a strict policy of non-intervention in the domestic affairs of other countries. None of the allegations of electoral interference have ever been proven. Quite the contrary, in the 3 year-long investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, Robert Mueller was unable to find a scintilla of evidence to support the bogus claims. In contrast, Washington’s clandestine interventions, coup d’etats, targeted assassinations and full-scale military invasions have been widely documented and substantiated. No country in the world has ever interfered in the affairs of other sovereign governments more than the United States.

These are largely the issues upon which the authors decided that Putin was headed in “the wrong direction.” He wouldn’t support their reckless military interventions, he wouldn’t hand Russia’s oil over to rapacious oligarchs, he wouldn’t look the other way while governments in his neighborhood were toppled by Washington one-by-one, and he wouldn’t snap a salute and click his heels when he got his marching orders from Washington. These are the reasons he is viciously attacked in the media and regarded as Washington’s blood enemy. He simply refused to be their lackey, which is why they’ve spent the last 17 years trying to destroy him.

Vladimir Putin; Washington’s Blood Enemy

    Why no mention that 90% of the oligarchs are Jews. Why no mention that Jews own the media and the politicians and Jew venom for Caucasian-Christian Russia is expressed through the Jew media and Jew-owned politicians? Why no mention of the fact that most Russians dislike Jews because the “Russian Revolution” of 1917 would be more accurately labeled the “Jewish-Bolshevist Revolution,” which saw the deaths of 20 million Russians at the hands of the Jews. Why no mention that Jews fully support the LGBQT agenda whereas Russia does not. (This fact also incurs the wrath of the Jews.) Finally, Russia supports Israel’s enemies: Syria and Iran. There’s no such thing as an American Jew. All Jews in America are Israelis first, second and third. So, of course hatred for Caucasian-Christian Russia is tribal. Finally, Jesus made it clear in John chapter 8 of the New Testament that ALL Jews are the children of Satan. Putin — more or less — stands for God and Jesus. That means that Jews are merely expressing the sentiments of their father, the Devil.

  3. America hates Putin because jews hate Putin, and jews control the media that tells Americans what to think. They hate that Putin ran some jews out of Russia for plundering the country in the 90s, they hate Putin because they can’t continue to plunder Russia, and they hate Putin because jews have a centuries-long blood hatred of Russia, where they have invented all sorts of indignities the Russians (not just the government, but the average Russian) allegedly committed against jews. They are a hateful, inhuman, evil people

    Jesus made it clear in John chapter 8 of the New Testament that ALL Jews are the children of Satan. Putin — more or less — stands for God and Jesus

    He is currently sending cruise missiles as Kiev. Are those missiles for Christ?

    Oh and it is Putin that sells Israel their oil to help fund his war. Here he is taking part in Jewish rituals:

    Does Tucker not post that picture?

    Now back to your regularly scheduled delusion that Putin is Christian while he sends cruise missiles and Iranian drones at civilian areas.

    DERP BUT LOOK AT THE PICTURE OF HIM LIGHTING CANDLES

    Russia has the largest Muslim population in Europe and it was Putin that sacrificed over 100k Russian men to keep a bunch of mountain Muslims from leaving.

    Russia also has the world’s highest abortion rate and a declining White population
    https://worldpopulationreview.com/country-rankings/abortion-rates-by-country

    Only a total sucker would think that Putin is a Christian. He uses oil money to send in Muslims to kill Orthodox Ukrainians. Yea I’m sure he reads his Bible every night after picking which civilian areas to hit. The Russians are currently attacking power plants in an attempt to freeze the civilians of Kiev which is a war crime. Hail Christ.

    Just stop already. The little dictator failed to take Kiev and he is throwing a tantrum. Trying to imagine this as some great battle against the Jews will only lead to greater disappointment. Weak and amoral men like Putin always end up disappointing their defenders. It’s not a good idea to attach your ego to a dictator who bought a 1.3 billion dollar mansion but didn’t make sure that his troops have enough boots.

    Of course, America would never try to influence elections outside America. They are far too busy castrating infants and looting other countries, bombing and killing all over the world – and calling the mountain of corpses they leave behind ‘collateral damage’.

    Russia said they could not allow Ukraine to join NATO in the same way that JFK said he could not allow the USSR to put missile in Cuba. The demands were reasonable and America chose to ignore them

    Elagabalus would have felt right at him in modern America. It is a nauseatingly self-righteous, callous, degenerate, morbidly obese, perverted, venal, warlike, drug-snorting, filthy p1g-wh0re of a country and I wholly support Putin in resisting it.

    The USA is the source of most of the degeneracy in the world today It is a sewer pretending to be a country. I hate it and despise it in equal measure.

    The main donors to your ruling party are George Soros and Sam Bankman-Fried. Your president’s is a crack smoking pervert in the pay of Burisma. In return for putting junkie on their board, they get to buy US foreign policy

    Go neuter your children and then yourself – if you have not done so already.

  6. Man, this is becoming confusing.
    The US foreign policy is to promote democracy – like “Cookies” 2014 coup. Authoritarian un-democratic Russia recognized the plebiscites held in Donetsk and Lugansk attended by international observers, but the democratic freedom loving US won’t, saying it was a rigged vote, unlike the plebiscite not held in Kosovo, before the US recognized its independence from Serbia. Ukraine territory cannot be divided, but Serbia, along with the UK’s and Canada’s can have regions vote to leave. Un-democratic Russia (and Belarus) invite international observers to their elections, but the democratic US won’t allow them. The Russian elections are rigged, but US elections are fair. Russian politicians are corrupt, but US politicians are honest. Putin has stolen billions, but Biden is an honest broker.
    I think I’m getting the picture.

  10. From 1997, “The Grand Chessboard American Primacy And Its Geostrategic Imperatives” by Zbigniew Brzezinski.

    Regarding the landmass of Eurasia as the center of global power, Brzezinski sets out to formulate a Eurasian geostrategy for the United States. In particular, he writes, it is imperative that no Eurasian challenger should emerge capable of dominating Eurasia and thus also of challenging America’s global pre-eminence.

    Basically “the imperial option” = self-determination and and independent foreign policy, the “European option” = accept the GAE (global American empire) and all that entails culturally (Drag Queen Story Hour) and economically (privatise everything). Russia has been attempting to split the difference, economic integration but no privatisation/drag queens.

    [MORE]

    “support for the new post-Soviet states—for geopolitical pluralism in the space of the former Soviet empire—has to be an integral part of a policy designed to induce Russia to exercise unambiguously its European option. Among these states, three are geopolitically especially important: Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, and Ukraine.

    An independent Azerbaijan can serve as a corridor for Western access to the energy-rich Caspian Sea basin and Central Asia. Conversely, a subdued Azerbaijan would mean that Central Asia can be sealed off from the outside world and thus rendered politically vulnerable to Russian pressures for reintegration. Uzbekistan, nationally the most vital and the most populous of the Central Asian states, represents a major obstacle to any renewed Russian control over the region. Its independence is critical to the survival of the other Central Asian states, and it is the least vulnerable to Russian pressures.

    Most important, however, is Ukraine. As the EU and NATO expand, Ukraine will eventually be in the position to choose whether it wishes to be part of either organization. It is likely that, in order to reinforce its separate status, Ukraine will wish to join both, once they border upon it and once its own internal transformation begins to qualify it for membership. Although that will take time, it is not too early for the West—while further enhancing its economic and security ties with Kiev—to begin pointing to the decade 2005–2015 as a reasonable time frame for the initiation of Ukraine’s progressive inclusion, thereby reducing the risk that the Ukrainians may fear that Europe’s expansion will halt on the Polish-Ukrainian border.

    Russia, despite its protestations, is likely to acquiesce in the expansion of NATO in 1999 to include several Central European countries, because the cultural and social gap between Russia and Central Europe has widened so much since the fall of communism. By contrast, Russia will find it incomparably harder to acquiesce in Ukraine’s accession to NATO, for to do so would be to acknowledge that Ukraine’s destiny is no longer organically linked to Russia’s. Yet if Ukraine is to survive as an independent state, it will have to become part of Central Europe rather than Eurasia, and if it is to be part of Central Europe, then it will have to partake fully of Central Europe’s links to NATO and the European Union.

    Russia’s acceptance of these links would then define Russia’s own decision to be also truly a part of Europe. Russia’s refusal would be tantamount to the rejection of Europe in favor of a solitary “Eurasian” identity and existence. The key point to bear in mind is that Russia cannot be in Europe without Ukraine also being in Europe, whereas Ukraine can be in Europe without Russia being in Europe….

    A clear choice by Russia in favor of the European option over the imperial one will be more likely if America successfully pursues the second imperative strand of its strategy toward Russia: namely, reinforcing the prevailing geopolitical pluralism in the post-Soviet space. Such reinforcement will serve to discourage any imperial temptations. A postimperial and Europe-oriented Russia should actually view American efforts to that end as helpful in consolidating regional stability and in reducing the possibility of conflicts along its new, potentially unstable southern frontiers. But the policy of consolidating geopolitical pluralism should not be conditioned on the existence of a good relationship with Russia. Rather, it is also important insurance in case such a good relationship fails to develop, as it creates impediments to the reemergence of any truly threatening Russian imperial policy.

    It follows that political and economic support for the key newly independent states is an integral part of a broader strategy for Eurasia. The consolidation of a sovereign Ukraine, which in the meantime redefines itself as a Central European state and engages in closer integration with Central Europe, is a critically important component of such a policy

  15. A large number of Americans dislike Putin because their television or smartphone tells them to hate Putin. It’s as simple as that, millions of people have no opinion except the one that they are told to have. I know quite a few people like this. A couple of nights ago I was socializing with two men I’ve known for many years, one, like me, has a positive opinion about Putin and the other has his opinion, straight off the nightly news, Putin is Hitler, he invaded for no reason, he’s killing and torturing poor Ukrainians, Russia’s losing, they’re technology is so bad that they buy drones from Iran. We tried to set him straight on a few subjects, but he’s so brainwashed he kept on and on until he nearly had a stroke (he’s almost 80). I saw him a couple of days later and he went straight into Putin again, I let him drone on for a few minutes and then subtly changed the subject. As long as you keep him away from the subjects of covid and Putin, he’s otherwise an OK human being.

    There was a short bio on one of his earliest venues (I don’t recall its name). It mentioned the State in which he lived and that he had a landscaping business.
    He used to have a blog but it was banned because of his anti-vaccine posts (https://mikewhitneysgraspingatstraws.blogspot.com).
    He once published a chapter in a book (I don’t recall the name of the book, it’s geopolitics stuff if I remember correctly).
    That’s all I know. I suspect there isn’t anything more. If there is, he could step forward and tell us, though I wouldn’t count on that.

    I never said or implied that they wouldn’t. Who are you even responding to? Yourself?

    I was pointing out that Whitney was wrong. Russia already admitted to interfering in US elections.

    Cry more if you don’t like us pointing out the bullshit of Putin’s remaining defenders. Unlike RoosanTV we are free to engage in critical thinking and ask questions.

    Russia said they could not allow Ukraine to join NATO in the same way that JFK said he could not allow the USSR to put missile in Cuba. The demands were reasonable and America chose to ignore them

    Ukraine didn’t qualify for NATO and they didn’t have the votes for France or Germany. They weren’t even in the process of applying. The vote has to be unanimous after the application process and there is in fact a preliminary process that would disqualify them because of their unstable border.

    Russia never made demands related to NATO. There was never an ultimatum before the invasion.

    Putin in fact turned down an offer to keep Ukraine neutral:
    https://nypost.com/2022/09/14/putin-rejected-ukraine-peace-deal-struck-by-aide-as-war-began/

    Putin has a disease and is trying to go out as a conqueror. It was never about NATO.

    It’s just some old man playing wargames with the lives of men that he can never be. Real men that don’t have to wear height enhancing shoes to feel masculine.

    Real men are comfortable in their own skin and don’t need 1.3 billion dollar mansions or pictures of themselves in karate outfits or shirtless on a horse. That’s all insecurity. Putin plays dress up man. He can’t handle competition and tries to control language like a leftist. An insecure dictator that gambled on a war of expansion and lost.

    Make all the blog posts you want but the world hates Putin and he will go down as a total loser who humiliated Russia in a needless war.

    Even if she was doted on by an English Queen in her childhood growing up in England and thought in English. Court Historians like Simon Sebag-Montefiore in this German produced documentary can’t resist ripping at the rather tragic Tsarina Alix Von Hesse. Skip to 44:00 and look at the Jewish rat face and compare IT to HERS. See Sebag-Montefiore seethe about how stupid and stubborn she was and by implication naturally, how much she deserved to be shot while watching her daughters get raped and shot too. Nice! She’s responsible for communists taking over Russia you see, goys.

    There’s a curiously similar tone in John Johnson’s diatribes about Putin. At least Putin made sure Olga, Tatiana, Maria and Anastasia were canonized for dying at the hand of a bunch of Jewish Bravos.

    I am not saying you are wrong in regard to Jewish controlled media having a hold on the general Americans’ opinion on foreign affairs, but I see a generational aspect to this as well. I was too young to get drafted to Vietnam, but old enough to remember the constant chatter from WW II vets like my dad about Communists. There was a lot of truth in their statements at the time – but Russia today is not the old Soviet Union. Even though practically all of those old WW II guys are gone, the mentality still lingers in many of the more conservative segments of our society. As for the younger, more liberal segment of today’s America, they revile Putin because he isn’t woke enough for them. He isn’t down with the gay agenda, he isn’t hugging enough trannies, he’s a misogynist (you always have to throw that one in like sprinkles on ice cream), he’s too nationalistic etc etc. I believe the opinions of the younger liberal generations are more connected with Jewish controlled media whereas the opinions of the older more conservative American have their origins in pre-Jewish control of the media (especially TV – who reads papers anymore LOL.) Both are where the American establishment want them, regardless of the origins of their opinions on Vlad Putin.

    More Orthodox believe their culture to be superior than Catholic or especially Protestant ones. Poland here is perhaps especially surprising.

    Putin is/was also deluded, and is playing into the hand(s) of Western media with his macho and alpha/top dog behavior, conduct and propaganda. He has been doing the opposite/inverse of “speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go farhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_stick_ideology for years now. He has no one to blame but himself for the (cluster bomb) clusterf*ck he has created for Ukraine, himself and Russia. So, please don’t keep crying us a (bloody) river about how misunderstood, etc. he is, and familiarize yourself with basic human nature, start to study human psychology 101 (see below) and learn/practice understatement!

    There is a common misconception among non-Americans and even among some Americans (ironically, due to a deep-seated Anti-Americanism), that most Americans love a winner above all else (presumably “Might Makes Right” leaders like Putin), but what and who Americans (and most other human beings as well, for that matter) truly love (and support) are underdogs (because America once was one). And Ukraine, et al. clearly were and still are economically and militarily the underdogs versus the Russian Federation. This is also the reason why many root for the Palestinians versus the Israelis and have a negative perception of Jews in general, because they perceive them to be top dogs who are bullies and abuse their power and influence. The love and psychological/emotional need of/for underdog (success) stories is also the root cause of (the aforementioned) wide-spread Anti-Americanism. The utility and motivation of achieving high “victimhood hierarchy” status (e.g. “4th or 5th generation Holocaust survivors”, etc.), is mostly to not to be perceived or even to obfuscate that one is a top dog, and therefore avoid the potential negative fallout associated with one’s non-underdog status. The more Putin presents himself as a/the top/alpha dog (nuclear war threats, bragging about hyper-sonic missiles, invading neighboring countries, etc.), the more and longer he will be hated, and not just by Americans.

    “I do think it’s human nature to root for underdogs. But I would argue there is something in American history probably pretty connected to not having an aristocracy or a ruling class … that makes us feel that we all come from an even playing field, and the best man or woman should win the race.”

    The science of why we love to root for underdogs
    https://www.vox.com/2015/3/20/8260445/underdogs-psychology or https://archive.ph/AW6dv

    The phenomenon has also been documented outside sports. In one 1980 study — conducted during the presidential election — participants disproportionately rooted for Ronald Reagan when told that Jimmy Carter had a lead in the polls, and rooted for Carter when told that Reagan did.
    Theory 1: We root for underdogs because of schadenfreude
    […]
    Theory 2: We want the world to be just
    […]
    Theory 3: We don’t want to get our hopes up

    Utilitarian-based motivation

    we put a lot at stake by supporting the top dog. When a top dog wins, it doesn’t thrill us nearly as much; it was expected of them anyway! However, if they happen to lose—perish the thought—their unexpected loss could leave us shattered.

    Thus, rooting for the underdog costs very little, and comes with the possibility of vicarious emotional rewards.https://www.scienceabc.com/social-science/why-do-we-root-for-the-underdog.html or https://archive.ph/A3Ox2

Which is still to say nothing at all about The Prince and (Gal) Pals so slap-happily producing and directing the entire shit-show, and making-out (and -off) like bandits, with the box office receipts….this earning for them the coveted FTX Award for Cupidity Above and Beyond What Just Yesterday Was Thought To Be Post/Trans-Humanly Possible.

    Things are actually way worse than that, though. The zero-sum contest driving the “civilization” disease process here has reached its terminal phase….aka; The End Game. The punch- ‘n’ power-drunk Contestants are all-in. It’s winner-take-all and loser gets deep-sixed. The two-minute warning came 158 seconds ago. By the rules of the “rules-based” system itself, there’s no OT, so any tie at the end of regulation results in both sides having to MAD-ly commit mass hari kiri. The League itself is dissolved in the ignominy of chapter-and-verse bankruptcy.

    Obviously, that sort of sister-kissing (Thank you, Vince Lombardi.) outcome is totally unacceptable to any and all involved. (Well, maybe some still in The Camp of The Sts. Hillbillary are way more than merely fine with it. Let’s face it, though. They don’t count for much of anything anymore anyways.)

    So we can see why it’s pedal-to-the-metal and balls-to-the-wall for all the desperate mofos still playing The Great Game.

  54. Either the Russians are extremely dim-witted and gullible or the Americans are the most weak-minded, brainwashed sheeple on earth? Which is it?

    Let’s pose an analogous question – which came first, the chicken or the egg?

    Your answer likely depends on your philosphical stance on the meaning of life, the universe and everything.

    If you subscribe to Darwin’s Theory of Evolution as the underlying basis for the variety of species populating Planet Earth, then the correct answer would be the egg, because all chickens come from eggs, but not all eggs come from chickens.

    On the other hand, a theologically rigorous outlook bound to the Biblical account of Creation would suggest that the chicken came first, because if God created the egg first, then there would be no chicken to sit on it and keep it warm until it hatched, and thence to mother the baby chicken.

    A more modest assessment might come to the inevitable conclusion that we simply don’t know, or might reject the assumed binary dimension to the question and propose other solutions.

    And so it is with the author’s question – it should go without saying that Russians are most certainly not “dim witted” as a rule, but by the same token – tempting as it may be – we also can’t categorically classify Americans as the most weak-minded, brainwashed sheeple on earth (they may be somewhere low on the list, but not at the bottom).

    Perhaps it would be escapist to avoid the question by saying that “we just don’t know” – but that would also be dishonest, because deep down, we do know the truth – and it’s not a binary truth.

    The truth is that humans are a herding species, and the elitist classes that currently have control of at least the Western part of the world’s population have figured out how to exploit that trait and herd us as a collective mass in whichever direction serves their purposes. We’ve been trapped in a hall of mirrors which feed us a fictional reality – and so far not too many lemmings have cottoned on to that.

    The circumstances are likely going to have to get a whole lot worse for Westerners before they’re shaken out of their manufactured stupor and finally understand who their real adversaries are.

    Just before the war in Ukraine Putin was collaborating with every Western regime. He left the people of Donbass to themselves when the Uranian Nazis were massacring them for 8 years. Putin was more interested (and still today) in selling gas/oil and was begging the West to have Russia part of the West. In fact, Putin admitted that he asked Clinton to allow Russia to join NATO. Against who? Despite the war in Ukraine, Putin continues to collaborate with the Fascist Israeli regime against Syria and Iran, even when Israel deliberately killed Russian service men to attack Syria.Israeli is one of the weapons suppliers to Ukraine. He collaborated with the U.S. against Afghanistan. Indeed, the U.S. army used Russia territory to fly deadly missions into Afghanistan. Putin is not a saint. His friends are mostly right-wing Fascist anti-Muslim regimes. Putin is as a Zionist as Biden. Let’s hope the war in Ukraine is teaching Putin and his ilk a lesson about who are their enemies and who are their friends. The world needs to change. America is worse than Nazi Germany. It is destroying humanity and Planet Earth with it.

    “You can tell what kind of person Putin is by what he says, by the words he uses. It betrays the way he thinks. He’s a pretty decent man.”

    So this is how Putin is described in Russia? Perhaps your definition of decency is different than mine. I’m confident that Putin would rape you and then throw you out of a 10th fl window without batting an eye. That’s how decent he is!

    Hate Putin? I suppose I don’t hate him. Hate implies a certain investment in the situation, and I really just don’t care all that much about Russia. I don’t like him. He’s a former secret policeman and soviet thug and a corrupt politician. There is some evidence that he murdered hundreds of his own people in the Apartment Bombings to gin up the second Chechen war. He certainly isn’t a nice man. Probably not a good man either.

    I don’t buy Whitney’s thesis about Putin. He didn’t banish the oligarchs from Russia. He banished a few of them, and told the remaining ones to cool it a little: go on rapaciously exploiting the Russian economy, just don’t be so obvious about it. Putin has become something of an oligarch himself, looting the public till and buying himself palaces and yachts.

    Putin was a WEF “young leader” or whatever they called it back in the 90s. Herman Gref, the President of the Sber Bank, is a supporter of Putin. He’s also on the board of directors of the WEF, or was as of the beginning of this year.

    I’m not sure that Putin isn’t himself just a puppet playing a role in the whole pantomime.

He is doing what a political leader should do, putting his country first — not just in geopolitics but culturally. In a time where globo-homo-shlomo tightens its grip on the Western world, Putin has supported Russia in resisting degeneracy, reviving and strengthening Russia’s traditional way of life.

    As biased as YouTube is, you can still see on it videos of Russian people (including young Russians) singing old patriotic songs, gladly attending Orthodox Church services. (And new cathedrals being built!) All that could have been swept away after the demise of the Soviet Union, when the globalists saw the country as ripe for the plucking. That it didn’t happen is largely to the credit of Putin. He is a “real man,” regardless of imperfections.

    Even if the communists had been replaced with another czarist regime (say in the 1930s) NOTHING would have changed that. Only a complete submission and sell-out of Russia – as happened under Jelzin. Basically, the end of the Russian nation and its culture would have “satisfied” this unipolar ambition of the Americans.

    Zelensky’s Well-Documented History of Crushing Dissent

    Volodymyr Zelensky has become something of a western folk hero in these last 8 months. Lionized by both the neoconservative right and much of the left, an eclectic chorus of western voices have heaped praise on the Ukrainian President:

    “Zelensky defines courage in our time” – Karl Rove in The Wall Street Journal.

    “Volodymyr Zelenskyy embodies resilience” – Marguerite Ward in Business Insider.

    “The Ukrainian leader’s refusal to back down is as inspiring as it is illuminating” – Tom McTague in The Atlantic.

    LOL. The Jewish media loves Zelensky. What’s not to like a bout a Jew who has gotten hundreds of thousands of Goyim killed.

    100,000 accepted KIA plus 380,000 MIA who are just dead slav meat kept off of the records.

    Zelensky’s Campaign Promise

    In April of 2019, former comedian Volodymyr Zelensky defeated incumbent Petro Poroshenko after running on a platform which, according to BBC, “made bringing peace to eastern Ukraine his number one election promise.” Reaping a death toll of 13,000 under Poroshenko’s watch, the eastern conflicts were a primary campaign issue for both candidates.

    Voters made it clear they were sick of war.

    By campaigning on a promise to host peaceful referendums in the East, Zelenksy won handedly, earning as much as 89% and 87% of the votes in Luhansk and Donetsk, which together form the disputed Donbas region.

    A peaceful resolution to the Donbas conflict may have averted the atrocities Ukrainians have suffered this year and the existential nuclear threat we all face today. Sadly, peace-in-the-East went the way of most campaign promises.

    Two years into the Zelensky presidency, no referendums took place and both sides accused the other of ceasefire violations in the Donbas, ultimately culminating in a “sharp increase” in shelling by the Ukrainian military in the weeks leading up to Russia’s invasion, according to Reuters.

    ROFL. Those stupid ethnic Russian slav’s trusted a comedian Jew who played piano with his penis. Zelensky is about as believable as Jews like Sam Bankman-Freid, Carolyn Ellison, Bernie Madoff, Vladimir Lenin or Leon Trotsky.

    Censorship Under Zelensky

    On February 3, 2021, President Zelensky circumvented parliament to enact sanctions on three television stations believed to be affiliated with Viktor Medvedchuk, a leader of the Opposition Bloc party and duly elected member of parliament.

    The channels were immediately taken off air, including Newsone quoted above.

Giving Russia very little chance to react and launch a counter-attack against any unprovoked attack on their sovereign territory?

As that man said, the bigger the lie is, and the more often it is repeated, the more it will be believed. People do not respond this way because they are morons, but because they are basically honest. They cannot conceive that their respected authority figures would be so evil as to deliberately deceive them about such important matters as war and peace. In this context, one might also recall the earlier American precedent, the fake news establishment of the old south. Nonstop, it falsely represented the supremely pragmatic midwestern politician Lincoln as a crazed radical Yankee abolitionist, a shocking inversion of reality that still passes for fact in some circles today, despite the unspeakable catastrophe it produced for those who fell for it.

    On the other side the following article states “Prigozhin has repeatedly denied any connection to the Wagner Group or the Russian defense ministry” and it goes so far as to question the existence of this so-called “Wagner Group”:

    https://foreignpolicy.com/2021/07/06/what-is-wagner-group-russia-mercenaries-military-contractor/

    “The first thing to understand about the Wagner Group is that there most likely is no Wagner Group. As far as researchers can tell, there is no single registered business called Wagner. Rather, the name has come to describe a network of businesses and groups of mercenaries that have been linked by overlaps in ownership and logistics networks.”

    Remember that when the US was fighting in Vietnam our soldiers were denounced as baby killers by America’s Jews. Back then America’s Jews denounced America’s police as pigs. Now that the US military is the footstool of American Jewry, however, the Jews are all things military—except serving in an American uniform themselves, of course.

    Way back in 1947 at a time when American soldiers were still coming home in coffins from the battlefields of Europe, having died in the tragically mistaken belief they were saving the lives of the Jews, Arthur Miller’s novel Focus came out to praise for depicting the poor Jews who sat out the war in NY as the real victims. In it Miller expressed the Jewish view that under the skin America’s white Christians (including the unborn!) were more Nazi than the Germans.

    Fox News today is all about encapsulating the Zionist meme within flag-waving jingoism and Country Western segues coming straight to Middle America from Times Square in the Big Bagel. Hannity gets paid $40 million a year to recruit Americans to do the Jews’ fighting and dying so good Jewish boys need not bother and get on with their lives—and then his show has the gall to run ads looking for Middle America and not the Jews to pay for the rehabilitation of American military amputees. Cops are now “heroes in blue” for supporting the 100% kosher street operation, Antifa, and its black flunkies in BLM, as well as enforcing totalitarian surveillance and lockdowns as part of the kosher Covid scam.

  145. Thinking Americans do not hate Putin, they see him as a Christian who is standing in the way of the zionist WEF/UN Agenda 2030 new world order, one world government agenda. The fiction that Putin is hated is driven by the zionist control of the ZUS ZMSM and their non-stop Putin and Russia bashing that goes on 24 hours a day, like the 2 minutes of hate speech in Orwells 1984, day after day, the zionist news networks spew the hate of Putin and Russia.

    Edgar Cayce foretold some 8 decades ago, that Russia would throw off their communist/zionist oppressors and return to their Christian roots and this has happened and Russia has become the hope and champion of the Christian world, while the zionist controlled ZUS has sunk into the degenerate moral abyss instigated by their zionist controllers. Read the Protocols of Zion to see the zionist game plan for the world.

    Zionists are destroyers of nations and humanity and they have destroyed America.

    So it’s not the “globalists” but the Americans that hate Putin, and it’s simply because he turned rogue on their agenda, the plunder of the world under the guise of “liberal democracy”. It happened around 2007.

    Before 2007, they thought of Putin as a puppet to the cause, that succeded their first puppet, Yeltsin. He played along for a while, leaving the oligarchs be, staying mute over the Baltic states joining NATO, and even helping the US invasion of Afghanistan.

    In 2007, however, he made apparent to everyone, in his Munich speech, that he knows that the Yanks thought of him as a puppet, instead of a peer, and of Russia as a US fiefdom, instead of a partner. He made clear that that game was over.

    Only after that came the renewed NATO push eastwards and the demonization of Putin and the Russian administration in the public sphere, laying the groundwork for what we see today.

    An old article by Mark Weber explains how in the 1930s hatred and fear of Germany in the media was reported back to Poland by the Polish ambassador.

    On 9 February 1938, the Polish Ambassador in Washington, Count Jerzy Potocki, reported to the Foreign Minister in Warsaw on the Jewish role in making American foreign policy:

    “The pressure of the Jews on President Roosevelt and on the State Department is becoming ever more powerful …”

    “… The Jews are right now the leaders in creating a war psychosis which would plunge the entire world into war and bring about general catastrophe. This mood is becoming more and more apparent.”

    “in their definition of democratic states, the Jews have also created real chaos: they have mixed together the idea of democracy and communism and have above all raised the banner of burning hatred against Nazism.”

    “This hatred has become a frenzy. It is propagated everywhere and by every means: in theaters, in the cinema, and in the press. The Germans are portrayed as a nation living under the arrogance of Hitler which wants to conquer the whole world and drown all of humanity in an ocean of blood.”

For propaganda purposes it’s useful to fold it all into one person, in this case Putin, and make them the focal point of their campaign. Also, repeat the same two or three themes over and over again. How many times has he been characterized as a “thug”? Americans who disagree with the party line are disloyal Russian agents. Anything that goes wrong in the US is attributed to Putin, a ready made excuse to explain away anything and everything.

    Your attempts at misdirection and gaslighting are so ham-fisted, you’re just making this too easy.

    How about you remind us all how Putin “disappeared” the Skripals? I know, I know, they were last seen being taken into British custody after their alleged Novichok poisoning (strangely, a nerve agent proudly made in the UK, just down the road at Porton Downs) and haven’t been seen or heard from since – but surely you must agree Putin did it! Wasn’t that him running door to door rubbing Novichok on door knobs?

  193. This is a great article and the question Mike Whitney asks is an important and interesting one: why do Americans hate Putin? The answer that Whitney proposes is that Americans hate Putin “because the media and the political class in Washington have told them to do so”, with the caveat that the “plutocrats behind-the-scenes” are the ones giving the marching orders to the media in order to fulfill their nefarious objectives.

    We here at TUR know fully well who these (((plutocrats))) are, don’t we, as many of the commenters here have already pointed out. We don’t need to belabor the point or accuse Whitney of not knowing who they really are: obviously he knows, but prefers to use these euphemisms to avoid the certain attacks he would have to endure if he were to explicitly name The Jew. We can’t blame him or call him paranoid for this.

    Besides answering the article’s question in the title itself, Whitney goes on to try to explain why Americans would follow the orders of the plutocrat-owned-media in the first place: it’s because “Americans are the most weak-minded, brainwashed sheeple on earth”. Well, since Putin is hated in other Western countries as well — “Putin is widely reviled in the US and across the west” — he is actually implying that the whole West is composed of gullible dimwits, almost in its entirety. I tend to concur and I think I found some supporting evidence:

    The Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC), an initiative of OECD, provides internationally comparable measures of three skills that are essential to processing information: literacy, numeracy, and problem-solving…

    https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/en/catalogue/89-555-X

    In the literacy skills test, which was applied in 22 countries of the OECD, the highest level (“Level 5”), the following “Characteristics of literacy tasks” are described:

    At this level, tasks may require the respondent to search for and integrate information across multiple, dense texts; construct syntheses of similar and contrasting ideas or points of view; or evaluate evidenced based arguments. Application and evaluation of logical and conceptual models of ideas may be required to accomplish tasks. Evaluating reliability of evidentiary sources and selecting key information is frequently a key requirement. Tasks often require respondents to be aware of subtle, rhetorical cues and to make high-level inferences or use specialized background knowledge.

    And here is the shocker: what percentage of the population aged 16 to 65 was able to achieve this high level of literacy? Here is what the report says:

    1% of populations across OECD and 1% in Canada can successfully perform tasks at Level 5

    https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/pub/89-555-x/2013001/t/tbl1.1-eng.htm

    There you have it: only 1% of the population can evaluate evidence-based arguments! So how are they supposed to evaluate what the media is feeding them? They can’t! So they will accept whatever the (((media))) shoves down their gullible throats. Mercifully, here at Unz we are the 1%! Well, at least those of us who don’t hate Putin….

But Wilson was looking for an excuse to enter the war on the side of Great Britain, and he found it in the Zimmerman Telegram.”

    That and the issues regarding shipping, was a bridge too far. Was Pres. and the US looking for an excuse, I think so. And the Zimmerman, memorandum was a smoking gun.

He stood that country back on its feet and made it into a world power again, second to none! Of course his people love him. He has (ignored by the western media) clearly explained why he ordered the invasion of the Ukraine. Had an openly hostile power set up a puppet government in Mexico, began propagandizing the Mexicans with Globo-Homo propaganda and built germ warfare labs inside the nation with no clearly stated legitimate reason, the US government would have invaded Mexico exactly as Russia has invaded the Ukraine. The US leadership has double crossed numerous Foreign nations. No one but brainwashed US citizens believe them anymore. Look at Quadaffi, he destroyed his weapons of mass destruction. A few months later a CIA backed coup ousted him from power and he was lynched after having a bayonet shoved up his rectum. Given this history it is no wonder tha Kim Jong Il fast tracked the development of Nuclear weapons and ICBMs. Only thoughtless idiots fall in line with Putin hatred.

    You can tell what kind of person Putin is by what he says, by the words he uses.

    Disagree. Talk is cheap. Listen to the US politicians: until very recently they used to say nice things, but the US foreign policy ever since the checks and balances (the USSR) disappeared was pure banditry. Today the internal policies become banditry, too. Just look at the “investigation” of Jan 6 non-event, where the only violence was a government thug murdering an unarmed woman (a military veteran, as it turned out, unlike that government murderer). The bastard wasn’t even investigated, whereas people who were guilty of trespassing (maximum) are in jail for more than a year. So, words mean nothing, actions do.

    He’s a pretty decent man.

    I’d say spontaneous unscripted behavior reveals the nature of a person. When he visited Palestine, the cap of one of Palestinian honorary guards fell off as Putin was passing him. Putin picked up the cap and put it back on guard’s head. Western media never told this story, but the rest of the world learned about it. This action clearly shows normalcy and decency.

    We can debate whether or not Putin is good for Russia. We can debate the extent to which he is beholden to the interests of Jewish oligarchs. Those are valid questions and concerns. I doubt that anyone would ever schill for Putin 100%.

    All of that is irrelevant though. Putin is a symbol of Russia, and an avatar of the Russian people and Russian culture. To that extent, all of the hatred directed against him is directed towards Russian people and Russian culture. When someone takes the side of Russia, they are not approving of all of Putin’s actions. They are responding to the larger strategic goal of subverting and destroying Russia.

    During the 1980s, there was a lot of criticism about the Soviet Union and how bad it was. Russians took the bait and fell for the West’s deceit. The result? Their economy was shattered and plundered, the people impoverished, women trafficked and forced into prostitution in large numbers, huge inflation and unemployment, drug use, alcoholism, etc.

    When Bolshevisk (i.e. Jewish) activists stirred up anger (or tried to stir up anger) against the Tsar prior to the 1917 revolution, promising something better, some Russians fell for it. The result? Millions of Russians were murdered, their lives destroyed. Yes, I know that the Revolution was carred out by Bolshevik Jews who were introduced by Germany AFTER the Tsar resigned and that they overthrew a provisional government, not the monarchy. My point still stands.

    Do you think the criticism of Russia’s government and leadership this time around is well-intentioned? Do you think that if Russia’s government is overthrown (again), the end-result is gonna be good for the Russian people? Of course not. Russia will be destroyed again (for the umpteenth time), and we know what the final outcome will be. More misery, poverty, humiliation, and despair.

    Maybe Russia needs reform. Maybe they need to replace Putin. But Russians will do this on their own terms, gradually and in a manner that ensures their well-being. Not to fulfill the nefarious goals of Western and Jewish agents. Just as China transitioned into the Reform and Opening Up period, so Russia can decide to transition to something better.

    So please try to see the bigger picture.

    Orthodoxy was a driving force behind illiteracy, serfdom and feudalism in Eastern Europe so it’s definitely hilarious seeing people who know nothing about Eastern Europe praise it.

    Absolutely, and in the past the Orthodx Church wasn’t too concerned about banning cousin marriage (which is highly dysgenic) either, details here:

    The West won out when cousins stopped kissing
    An obsession with incest cleared a path for independent thought.

    At the same time, the Constantinople-based Eastern Orthodox Church was less concerned with incest and policing rules relating to cousins marrying.

    To test their theory, the researchers built a database calculating the spread of influence of the Western and Eastern churches in every country of the world, and more finely in 440 regions of Europe.

    They then tallied this data with Vatican records of cousin-cousin marriages, and findings from a range of previous tests comparing 24 different psychological characteristics and behaviours across countries and regions.

    Their results showed a clear correlation between the length of time that the Western Church had been active in a geographic region, the decline of kinship structures, and the prevalence of characteristics such as analytical thinking, independence and individualism.

    But it’s easier to rile up hate against a single person than a faceless committee. So the Jewish Mafia’s media promotes the myth that Putin is a dictator so they can have a single face at which to direct the hate.

    Do you deny that Putin invaded Ukraine under the guise of “removing Neo-Nazis”

    Was not his primary reason for this war. The attacks on Donetsk and Luhansk by Ukrainian forces, and the deliberate ignoring of the Minsk agreements by the Zelensky regime were. However, Neo-Nazis do exist in Ukraine and are an integral part of the Ukrainian army.

    Do you deny that several of his political opponents have mysteriously fallen ill under his reign

    Poisoned by Russia – or poisoned by other actors in false flag operations? False flags are not unheard of when used by several countries murky intelligence services (CIA especially).

    Do you deny that he was once an integral part of the Russian Deep State

    No, if you mean he was once a senior member of the KGB/FSB. And?

    Do you deny that he has financially reaped the benefits by granting certain economic privileges to Russian oligarchs

    Wouldn’t know the details of that, except to say that he didn’t create the oligarchs or the conditions for the oligarchs to thrive in. That was Yeltsin’s baby. What Putin did was to put the oligarchs in their place and get rid of a few of them.

    Do you deny that he has conscripted Russian men into the military

    He has?? The head of state is conscripting men into the military during wartime? Quick! Quick! Pass me my smelling salts…

    Do you deny that he has put down dissent by the Russian people who oppose his policies in Ukraine

    Whilst I don’t agree with Putin doing this, suffice to say that this is hardly just a Russian thing (Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill being 2 well known individuals who did the very same thing). Apart from which, freedom of speech is rapidly shrinking in the “free” West for people who oppose sexual degeneracy and the attack on normalcy.

    At this level, tasks may require the respondent to search for and integrate information across multiple, dense texts; construct syntheses of similar and contrasting ideas or points of view; or evaluate evidenced based arguments. Application and evaluation of logical and conceptual models of ideas may be required to accomplish tasks. Evaluating reliability of evidentiary sources and selecting key information is frequently a key requirement. Tasks often require respondents to be aware of subtle, rhetorical cues and to make high-level inferences or use specialized background knowledge.

    Making a pitch to potential spies and agents, David Marlowe, the agency’s deputy director of operations, told an academic audience that the invasion of Ukraine has been a massive failure for Russian President Vladimir Putin and that Western intelligence services should make the most of it by enlisting agents from among Russians, Wall Street Journal reported.

    I never said that Russia is “a “Jewish ethnicity” country”.

    I said that it is “in absolute terms […] the most genetically/ethnically-Jewish […] country in the world”.

    Both Russia and the U.S. have about the same number of citizens, who have “Ashkenazi Jewish ethnicity of 25% or more”, which is about between 10 to 11 million people each, so my above quoted paragraph could, theoretically, also be applied to the U.S.

    The U.S.’s population (~330 million), however, is over double Russia’s (~144 million), so proportionately, per capita, Russia (~7.5%) is therefore a lot more Jewish(-influenced/controlled) than the U.S. (~3.3%).

    I’m sure you are well aware of the facts and reality of how influential Jews are here in the U.S., despite only ~3.3% of the population having “Ashkenazi Jewish ethnicity of 25% or more”.

    Imagine now what this country would be, act and look like, if ~7.5% of our population (~25 million) were significantly ethnically/genetically Jewish, like it is the case in Russia.

    Russia is ZOG on steroids, compared to the U.S., and not some Conservative Caucasian Christian Orthodox utopia or promised land (the same goes for Hungary, by the way, remember this incident? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_B._Spencer#Early_activities In 2014, Spencer was deported from Budapest, Hungary.)

    Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine has raised the risk of a global cyber war — and turned Russia into even more of a pariah at summits to secure the world’s digital infrastructure.

    Russia’s destabilizing cyberattacks are the elephant in the room as the Kremlin’s diplomats attend international meetings about keeping hackers out of critical computer systems like those powering hospitals and power plants. With Moscow constantly looking for ways to sabotage Ukraine’s power grid and threatening more far-reaching actions, other nations’ cyber diplomats aren’t going out of their way to welcome their Russian colleagues warmly.

    Assuming that the statistical representation you put forward is accurate, my only concern is that it stretches back only to 1400. If we are to zoom out and go back a few millennia, we would surely see the contribution of Europe shrinks dramatically in favor of other parts of the world like China, Egypt, India, the Phoenician Levant and Greece, and the charts will change dramatically.

    When freedom of thought came into Europe, unshackled by religious dogma, sciences and the arts flourished. As of our current era, the West is going back into reverse mode from freedom towards Talmudic, totalitarian censorship, no better illustrated than by the untouchable, unchallengeable story of the Holocaust, with the level of control exponentially magnified with political correctness and woke practices that are surely driving Western cultural preeminence down the tubes.

    Coming back to Russia, Hitler’s Mein Kampf bemoaned that Bolshevism gravely reduced the potential of a rising power through the oppressiveness of communism. Not bad from someone accused by history of being a cultural vandal even though his effort at protecting the arts from indiscriminate Allied bombardment, a practice that was heralded by Kaiser Wilhelm during WWI, was portrayed as art theft.

    How many Russian gems were trampled upon by the Bolshevik oppressing swine is hard to estimate, but I would speculate that the loss was a mammoth one.

    US aims in prolonging the conflict have only recently become clear:

    –act as a real life laboratory to test new US war tech.

    These guys just cannot fathom that this war was never in the interest of the US, that it was always about the empire of ZOG.

    ZOG wants war, and it doesn’t matter how many slavs die on the meat grinder or how many US and European families and companies ending up going broke. They also cannot figure out that if ZOG wants escalation to nuclear war, then ZOG will have nuclear war. ZOG has made it perfectly clear through all it’s spokes-holes like Sunak, Biden, Macron.

    How so? I dislike Putin not because CNN told me so, but rather because he’s a liberal globalist and a traitor to Russia. Have you read my comment about Putin’s “achievements”? Re-quoting it below for your convenience. Any comments?

    Also, Putin 22-year rule, or rather mismanagement, has brought disasters including: “country’s birth rate has plummeted to levels not seen since 1943”, “Life expectancy has fallen by 4.5 years.”, “In terms of the total population loss, Russia is first place in the world”, “The “natural” population decline has exceeded one million people, which has never happened in any country in the world since 1950.”, etc.

    More on Russia being robbed by the West during Putin’s reign: Sergei Glazyev, leading Russian economist, said that the biggest damage done to Russia financially by the West was not done through sanctions, but rather through the floating ruble FX rate (monetary policy) that Putin allowed and Wall Street used for their “games”. Since Sergei’s patriotic suggestions were not liked by the globalists around Putin, he was let go.

    I think that many people in Russia, especially patriots are waking up to the fact that Putin is inept, slow, indecisive, weak, etc. – pretty much everything one would expect from someone who got where he is by making deals behind the scenes and not based on merit, charisma, and similar treats of true leaders. Think about it – he was selected while Russia was still essentially 100% controlled by the West! Would they allow some patriot to get there?

    Any proof of his “performance” aside from “historical” speeches? Let’s see Putin’s “successes” in the past 22 years. This list is not complete by ANY means!

    Kept providing cheap energy and all other resources for 20+ years. Kept exporting rocket engines West cannot not produce. Kept allowing them to use Russian Space Station MIR-2 (aka “International” Space Station), and even Uber-ing US astronauts back and forth as they could not even do that. Kept putting EU satellites into orbit as they could not do that themselves, i.e. in spite of German “Engineering”. Kept allowing Erdogan to humiliate him and Russia repeatedly (killing a diplomat, killing pilots over Syria and over Armenia, and who knows how many Russian foot soldiers in Syria, not respecting any agreements in Syria, exporting drones to Ukraine, not paying back huge loans given to Turkey by Russia, etc.). Kept helping the West harm Russia’s true friends and true partners like Belarus, Armenia, Serbia, etc. Helped NATO destroy Libya. Helped US occupy Serbia in 2000. Voted numerous times in the UNSC the way US wanted and got nothing in return but scorn (e.g. multiple UNSC sanctions votes against N.K.). Kept making enemies for Russia just to please NATO. Kept repeatedly asking for Russia’s NATO membership even after Bill Clinton laughed in his face as reply. Kept saying that Russia needs to integrate into Western systems. Kept saying that the difference between Russia and the West is just semantics. Kept saying that he has nothing against US being the boss of the world with Russia as its trusted sidekick. How many times has he mentioned or asked for those $350B confiscated to be returned? He even brought flowers and smiles to that dull and soulless Angela, after Expansion-Eastward-Again-Nazi Germany openly admitted lying about Navalny to put more pressure on Russia. Etc. etc. etc.

    Putin took over Russia that was destitute, pillaged, and pilloried and then continued to keep it so. How many oligarchs has he arrested, and how much stolen was nationalized? E.g. Chubais, one of the most hated people in Russia, the main organizer of the loot, was kept in power by Putin for 22 years, until he left on its own, never facing any charges.

    The list of Putin’s treacheries seems endless. Just ask yourself, if the situation was the exact opposite, what would West do? E.g. if Russians were freezing, and EU/USA had all the gas Russians needed – what would they do? Exactly.

    Simply put, Putin is a traitor to Russia – one clueless and spineless narcissist, way over his head in global politics, and a 5th-column liberal globalist.

    Putin has been pictured praying with Jews at the Wailing Wall in Israel. What does that mean?

    Finally, Jesus made it clear in John chapter 8 of the New Testament that ALL Jews are the children of Satan. Putin — more or less — stands for God and Jesus. That means that Jews are merely expressing the sentiments of their father, the Devil. -Phibbs comment #1

    Phibbs, are you referencing a version of the Bible that eliminates John 8:30-32? Jesus clearly makes a distinction between Jews who believed in him (including many Messianic Jews who today still observe the Jewish holidays and other Jewish traditions) and the Pharisees who wanted to murder him, those of the Synagogue of Satan (John 8:43-44 King James Version. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.)

    John 8:30-32 King James version. 30 As he spake these words, many believed on him. 31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

    John 8:30-32 New International version. 30 Even as he spoke, many believed in him.
    31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

    John 8:30-32 English Standard Version .30 As he was saying these things, many believed in him. 31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

    I enjoy listening to Putin’s speeches, even when there’s a translator speaking over. But listening to Biden longer than 30 seconds always makes my skin crawl.

    Part of the reason our “elites” hate Putin is that he stands head and shoulders above the “best” and “brightest” from among them, and listening to the now 80 year old “leader” of the free world prattle inanely only adds to their discomfort.

    Though I do not think Putin is a genius, the reaction of our “elites” to him always reminds me of what Swift wrote: “When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.”

    It’s Bolsheviks. Bolsheviks v Trotskyites. This only emerged later in the struggle with Trotsky as to who would inherit the mantel of Leninism. That’s a reasonable distinction But essentially Stalin was pushing out an Ukie-Jew from taking over Russia.

    The war winning T34 tank which was pretty good used a suspension designed by Christie, an American automotive designer who was shunned in the US.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christie_suspension

    The same suspension unsuccessfully featured in several mediocre Cruiser tanks in the UK which were disasters against the Germans.

    What made the T34 a winner was that the Russians put a French derived 75mm gun in the turret of the T34, thickened the frontal armour a little and stuck in their own heavy winterized robust diesel engine into the powerplant.

    Why was it ultimately a better massed produced tank than anything the Germans, Americans and British made? It’s all about how the tanks had to be transported on trailers. The Czar at the time Russia’s railways were first laid out decided to use a wide gauge unused in Germany, UK or the US. The modern Russian railway network solidified around the Saint Petersburg–Moscow railway, built two years later (1842). There, the Tsar established a committee to recommend technical standards for the building of Russia’s first major railway. The team included devotees of Franz Anton von Gerstner, who pushed to continue the Tsarskoye Selo gauge, but also engineer Pavel Melnikov and his consultant George Washington Whistler, a prominent American railway engineer. Whistler recommended 5 ft (1,524 mm) on the basis that it was cheaper to construct than 6 ft (1,829 mm) and cheaper to maintain than 1,435 mm (4 ft 8+1⁄2 in), and his advice won over the Tsar.

    This meant wider heavier tanks could be carried on the rolling stock a century later so the design bureaus could make larger designs without constraint. This gauge also made it difficult for Germany to supply it’s forward troops because they had to unload and reload limited rolling stock.

    Ukraine is now having trouble finding engines and rolling stock.

Commit national suicide as in 1914 to save Serbia, this time from her very own twerps? Put a bullet in every oligarch’s head to get back what they’ve looted? Start WW3 with a decrepit army that had a hard time defeating a bunch of Chechen terrorists? Establish an Auschwitz-on-Volga to deal with Kasparov, Khodorkovsky and their kinfolk?
    When Putin rose to power, Russian economy was in tatters, the Russian army was in tatters, the Russian people had no morals and no purpose, life expectancy was that of Third World countries.

    I own and run a business. There are always those whose entire lives are spent being programmed about what others should do or ought to have done. There are times when it is better to not react to exogenous certainties promulgated by the thousands of talking heads one is subject to from birth.

    Under no circumstances is it prudent to forget that the world is not your friend. It is always better in the long run to keep one’s cards close to one’s chest. So what if others might disagree or agree. If your perspective is generational you naturally think long term. Of course you might miss certain short term opportunities; on the other hand, the prudent and patient person, discovers, aligned with his long term perspective and attendant goals, that opportunities often align perfectly with his trajectory.

    Those opportunities may seem like luck to the normally complacent person who is suddenly shocked by your good luck. But a well reasoned trajectory can’t help but be lucky. The long run perspective requires hard work and constant readjustment to forces one has no control over. The persons with short run perspectives are always jumping in where angels fear to tread. The prepared persons already know the difference between what for him would be imprudent and prudence.

    My guess is Putin is well prepared. It is almost impossible to dislodge the prepared. The prepared always understand things the unprepared reactionary never notices; as often as not until it is too late.

    Sometimes one simply cannot do what one would love to do. That with every fibre of his being. Beware of that which one’s emotions command. In the political arena, these events which you would viscerally love to attend to may very well be a trap. One calculatingly set by your adversaries. The most intelligent leaders are often the easiest to criticize. They may appear to be doing nothing. Maybe they are shifting their pieces behind the scenes. Maybe they are simply paying attention to their long run goals and sticking to them.

    As well, maybe they are looking at their adversaries public reactions and gauging to what extent their adversaries are misleading themselves. China, Russia, Iran at least, may very well realize the U.S. and Israel are running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Maybe this is their plan. Keep the U.S. guessing.

    One certain thing, gutting your own people, as has been done by western world leaders, whose hubris and arrogance knows no bounds are now flirting with disaster. The U.S. spends billions building up a military — which like France’s Maginot Line was an inflexible and costly strategy base on trench warfare rather than mobile flexibility. Certainly the Maginot Line was justified in some circles as necessary, because they had a vested interest — government contracts are notoriously cost plus.

    There is no accounting for treachery and vast economic malfeasance. The western world oligarchy has run out of territory with which to underwrite its economic malfeasance. All that sunk capital designed to advance and control and perpetuate the present trajectory of the Globalist Agenda — now clearly exposed, indeed acknowledged, by its promulgators — is tied up in a knot it cannot unravel and refuses to unravel intentionally. So it will unravel willy nilly. Confiscating the wealth from conquered territories is not intelligence at work; it is tragic ignorance. It simply invites every country outside the Washington consensus to eventually and gradually repudiate their debts.

    The world is awash with U.S. dollars which it should be evident is destructively inflationary; especially within the U.S. and it’s satrapies. Those dollars will never be paid back. There is no underlying economy with which to service the debts. And no more plunder to be had. Overburdened taxpayers are paying those taxes with ever depreciating U.S. dollars. There is nothing worse than a balance sheet recession. Nothing!

    Every western world country has allowed the erection of a system which is not intended to educate but simply placate the young — with imaginary notions about their capabilities. Teaching ends rather than means does that. Feeling good is not an aim. In fact it misses the mark altogether. There is no learning because there is no teaching. Brainwashing is not teaching.

    Progressivism is an Agenda. An Agenda altogether promulgated by the ease with which innocent and gullible and ignorant and dumbed down people, accepted without an iota of resistance, to be seduced by an ideology which intentionally has been deployed against them.

    The main stream media has become the “alternative.” Believers have become agnostic. If the litany fails to make sense people gradually take notice of its emptiness and false promises and begin to reconstruct what eventually becomes a countervailing force.

    It’s not that so many put their hopes in someone like Putin. It is rather that so many have lost their faith in the prevailing agenda and it’s trajectory and those promulgating that Agenda. When a people lose faith in their own leaders, they begin to lose faith, period. Americans have lost faith.

    Why 1400 and onward is significant and relevant is, because, I suspect, at around that time the Cousin Marriage Ban policies of the Western (Roman) Catholic Church (that were introduced https://archive.ph/o8jNf#selection-1343.0-1343.146In September 506 C.E.“) reached a tipping point and “escape velocity” so to speak, meaning that the Western European gene pool had by then fundamentally and irrevocably changed, and created somewhat of a new, “mutant” West European (Hajnal Line, etc.). That transformation or even “transmutation” of the Western European gene pool (e.g. Faustian Spirit, etc.) set off a process and triggered a “domino effect” that caused/resulted in the Renaissance, then Reformation, Industrial Revolution, etc., and is still ongoing today:

    Here he [Putin] is taking part in Jewish rituals— #4 John Johnson

    Oh. Jewish rituals like the one Jesus Christ was taking part in when he prepared the Passover meal (more commonly referred to in Western Christendom as “The Last Supper”) for closest disciples the night before He was crucified?

    Since you keep bringing up Jesus Christ, John Johnson, is it truly your opinion that the Baby Jesus is cheering on the Ukies in their conflict against Russia? (which conflict, some might frame as “Globalists vs. Patriots”, and still others would frame as: “Globalists acting as fighters on both sides to maximize global chaos so as to make the world desperate to accept their Great Reset Plans.”)

    I’m going to stick my neck out and opine that Jesus Christ (aka, The Prince of Peace) would be playing the part of the Peacemaker. He’d be about getting people on both sides to sit down and talk it through and understand one another’s points of view, and work it out, as fairly and squarely as possible. “Come let us reason together.” Like that.

    You paint Jesus Christ as very Pharisaical, John Johnson. “Ewww. I’m not going to have anything to do with YOU because you’re a Jew.” Have you ever sat down and read any of the Gospels right through, to have impressed upon you the kind of people Jesus Christ DID choose to hang out with? He went to parties with the type of people the Pharisees considered “not quite quite.” Sinners, wine-bibbers, tax-collectors, naughty ladies…People who loved life, and fun, and parties, and joy– in other words, folks who still had parts of their SOULS intact– were attracted to Jesus, curious about Him, wanting to hear more, even though they still were enslaved to a naughty practice or two. There were people then, and are people now, who, while not Christians (yet), are being “wooed” by Jesus– and “wooed” is an absolutely appropriate term, as Jesus Christ is referred to many many times as The Bridegroom.

    I wish you could understand this, John Johnson. The two kinds of people in the world are not “Jews” and “everyone else.” The two kinds of people in the world are (1) those who are (without perhaps even having HEARD of Jesus) moving toward Jesus, through their humble posture toward their Creator God, and in their earnest desire and attempts to respect and love people the way they themselves would like to be respected and loved and (2) those who, even with a photographic memory of every jot and tittle of what Holy Writ says, are moving away from Jesus. Sadly there are those who have “forgotten their first Love” and have even fallen from grace. Peace, John Johnson. I think that’s what we all really want.

    Russia had to go statist, because their communism destroyed the market economy. Another issue is that the rest of the world has also been in a regressive evolution towards big statist government. In the case of Russia, you cannot arrive at a free market economy out of the blue, after you destroyed a market economy, so statism can provide solidity and protection for a while, to build a free cooperative market economy. But in a world of primitive militant statist governments with a half baked free market, you cannot arrive at a fully flowering cooperative free market system, added to that, the threat of global governance institutions trying to take over.

    So Putin appears a good choice, in a country where a disastrous former people’s dictatorship collapsed, and in a world which during the twentieth century also regressed into authoritarian statism, proletarian social democracy, proletarian social liberalism and the primitivism of mass democracies.

    You would not want a messy real democracy in this case, blundering politics and all it’s incompetence, make belief and corruption like in the Western democracies, you can afford that only if a free market economy can pay for it, if is stable and resilient enough to handle all the sabotaging and corruption of real democratic big government.

    So you are indeed one of those “intellectuals” worshiping “civilized” and “advanced” West, and trying to become, unfortunately, just like them in order to be accepted as their reliable servant – exactly what Putin craves to do with Russia, and has been working hard to achieve in the past 22 years.

    Re Army: Once the West finished the Regime Change (TM) in Serbia, with Putin’s help of course, i.e. once one traitor (Milosevic) was replaced with even bigger ones (“democrats”, DOS, etc.), Serbia was completely occupied, looted, army dismantled. etc., and has been in the process of being dismantled into even smaller pieces territory-wise ever since (Vojvodina, Sandzak/Raska, Kosovo/KiM). US gave EU strict orders never to accept Serbia into EU [1], as Serbia is supposed to be cut into pieces as a punishment for its brave, tough, and rebellions fight against NATO and the NWO.

    Re Vukovar: I see that you are spouting propaganda of Catholic Nazi Croat separatists. They declared illegitimate independence in 1991, and immediately attacked Yugoslav National Army (YNA/JNA) bases, barracks, and soldiers, as well as Serb civilians everywhere they could. Once both responded to those attacks, Nazi Croats then started crying bloody murder and starter lying that “Croatia” was attacked by a foreign army. Yugoslav National Army was freeing Vukovar from thousands of armed Nazi Croat separatists, who slaughtered Serb civilians in the city itself and in the surrounding villages. Vukovar was still a city in Yugoslavia (SFRY/SFRJ) and National Army defended it from those Nazi sickos. Nazi Croatia 2.0 [3] (NDH 2.0) was recognized in the UN in May 1992, due to Milosevic betrayal and treachery, but that’s another topic in itself, and that is when Vukovar became a city in a foreign country, and not prior to that. That is why even justice-free kangaroo court in the Hague did not use Vukovar much, as it was a city in Yugoslavia, a country that still officially existed when Croats committed those atrocities. Below is the account [2] of what really happened there – told in detail by a Croat!

    Does Jesus condemn the Pharisees and the Scribes as such? He condemns the hypocritic ones.
    ”Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 2 Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: 3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not 4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, 6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi”.
    It is the comma misplaced in the text which changes the meaning. He really says: ”Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees hypocrites!” and not ”Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!” (Some translations are more emphatic: ‘you hypocrites’, ”teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites!”, which creates the impression that Jesus condemns the ‘religious law’ and its observance and replace it by all permissive ‘love’).
    ”Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil(πληρῶσαι)”. The commandments of God that you (Pharisees and Scribes hypocrites) ”transgress by your tradition”, who ”made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition”, ”teaching for doctrines the commandments of men”.

    Hi Seraphim (I thought of you the other day when my eye fell upon the Irina icon we talked about last Christmas.) There were at least a couple of Pharisees who were followers of Jesus. Nicodemus was one, and I think Joseph of Arimathea was a Pharisee as well. So there were Pharisees whose respect for the law — and the SPIRIT of the law — was righteous. The word Pharisaical in English has come to mean “legalistic” in the negative sense, but you’re correct, there were righteous Pharisees, who were not hypocrites. I don’t get the impression the righteous Pharisees were in the majority of the Pharisees at the time, though, otherwise would Jesus have been crucified?

    Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.

    You are white washing Pharisees here. Any man who says “I follow Jesus the Nazarene” is now part of his Church and can not be a “Pharisee” anymore. To be perfectly clear, this does not mean that e.g. Nicodemus was not a righteous man and true follower of Jesus. No, simply that he was no longer a Pharisee “in spirit”.

    So two questions for you to determine what’s what:

    1 – What was the hypocrisy of the hypocritical Pharisees? Do you know?

    2 – What is the nature of the “SPIRIT of the law” that these “righteous Pharisees” understood. Use the case of the woman brought to Jesus for the crime of adultery as the case in point.

    Putin should have done what Luka in Belarus has done. Belarus is free, while Russia is a colony of the West for cheap natural resources. Belarus is not looted, Russia is. Belarus is not implementing globalist immunization agenda, while Putin is implementing it all.

    Belarus is actually one unbelievable success story against NWO colonization. For 28 years, Lukashenko managed to resists and survive who knows how many color revolutions, psyop campaigns, coups d’état, assassination attempts, etc. They tried to bribe him numerous time as well to no avail. In one of the latest takeover attempts, even Russian oligarchs were involved against him. Unlike in Russia, in Belarus there are no oligarchs or 5th column traitors except in prisons doing time. The fact that he’s still alive and that Belarus is not under western boot is a true miracle and his remarkable achievement. Especially knowing that he’s essentially all alone, since Putin has betrayed and back-stabbed pretty much all OC countries including Belarus and Serbia – to please his Western “partners”.

    Also, Lukashenko has told Putin that Belarus has kept all the nuke silos maintained, operational, and ready to be loaded with “content”, but of course, Putin is not giving him any. Now, had Putin/Russia given some to Lukashenko, Western “partners” would be threading carefully, as there’s no joking with Lukashenko. As you can see, Putin is acting here even as open and direct protector of the West from Lukashenko, while leaving Belarus exposed to potential invasion. Lukashenko has already threatened the West with targeting command centers in EU should they hit anything in Belarus! Now, one can only imagine what would have happened already if Lukashenko were the president of Russia, instead of this 5th-column liberal globalist clown!

    Here’s Klaus Schwab in 2017 speaking of Putin and Angela [2] as, at the time, WEF’s Young Global Leaders (i.e. euphemism for recruits of course), as well as one younger one, Justin Trudeau (Canada’s PM). He mentioned Putin and Angela again in 2019, in the same context, along with Tony Blair [1].

    Don’t forget Gamaliel who was a Pharisee ”teacher of the Law” (‘Rabban’), president of the Great Sanhedrin in Jerusalem, who defended the Christians and became himself a Christian. Orthodox Tradition held that he was baptised by Saint Peter and John the Apostle, together with his son Abibon (Abibo, Abibas, Abibus) and Nicodemus, while remaining a member of the Sanhedrin. The Church (both Orthodox and Catholic) venerates him as a saint and he is commemorated on August 2, the date when tradition holds that his relics were found, along with those of Stephen the Protomartyr, Abibon (Gamaliel’s son), and Nicodemus. Relics of Gamaliel, Abibo and Nicodemus, brought by the Crusaders are still in the Pisa Cathedral. The Orthodox even speak of him as ‘worthy of the name of Apostle’.
    Of course, this tradition is so inconvenient to the ‘high criticism’ of the ‘Bible’ and Church history and to the Talmudists (the hypocritical Pharisees and Rabbans) that it was declared ‘spurious’. But it would shed an entirely different light on the events that took place between the Resurrection and the destruction of the Second Temple and on the reasons of the split between “Judaism” and the Church (actually on the emergence of ‘Judaism’ which is a travesty of the religion of the ‘House of Israel’).
    And of course, Saint Paul, ”Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; 6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. 7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: 10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.” (Philippians, 3:5-11).

    A very important distinction about the ‘righteousness’ of the Pharisees is that they believed in the resurrection of the dead in which the Sadducees did not. Josephus Flavius describes the tenets of their ‘school of philosophy’ thusly: ”Though they determine that all things are done by fate, they do not exclude the freedom from men of acting as they think fit, since their notion is that it has pleased God to make a temperament whereby what he wills is done, but so that the will of men can act virtuously or viciously. They also believe that souls have an immortal power in them, and that under the earth there will be rewards or punishments, depending on whether they have lived virtuously or viciously in this life. The latter are to be detained in an everlasting prison, but the former shall have power to revive and live again. On account of these doctrines, they are very influential among the body of the people, and whatever they do about divine worship, prayers, and sacrifices, they perform them according to their direction. In this way, the inhabitants of the cities gave great tribute to the Pharisees by conducting themselves virtuously, both in their way of life and their discourses as well.
    But the doctrine of the Sadducees is that souls die with the bodies. Nor do they regard as obligatory the observance of anything besides what the law enjoins them. For they think it an instance of virtue to dispute with those teachers of philosophy whom they frequent. This doctrine is accepted only by a few, yet by those still of the greatest standing. But they are able to do almost nothing by themselves, for when they become magistrates, as they are unwillingly and by force sometimes obliged to be, they submit themselves to the notions of the Pharisees because the multitude would not otherwise tolerate them”. (Antiquities XVIII: 13-17).

    War Crimes Are Part Of Russia’s War Culture, Says Ukrainian Nobel Peace Prize Winner

    Committing war crimes have become an integral part of how Moscow wages war and Kyiv shouldn’t wait to bring alleged Russian perpetrators to justice, argues Oleksandra Matviychuk, head of the organization that jointly won the Nobel Peace Prize this year.

    “For decades, Russia has used war as a method of achieving its geopolitical interests and war crimes as a way to win these wars,” Matviychuk, who heads the Center for Civil Liberties, told RFE/RL’s Ukrainian Service in an expansive interview. “They learned that they can do whatever they want because they weren’t punished for war crimes in Chechnya, Moldova, Georgia, Mali, or in Syria. Therefore, until we can bring justice, there will be no sustainable peace in our region.”

    Matviychuk, a lawyer by trade, says she wants to use the organization’s elevated stature to call for international action against human rights violations and the growing list of evidence pointing toward war crimes committed by Russian forces since the Kremlin’s February 24 invasion of Ukraine.

Years ago when I was still an unsuspecting consumer of the MSM’s I realized that Dan Rather could repeat the same lie about Russia many times during the 15 minutes of news he provided in his evening show. He was obviously obeying some directive from above in doing so. During the same period I could read obviously biased NYT articles showing China in a bad lighting. If I had not been to China myself I would certainly be influenced in my oerception of China by the NYT articles. Fortunately I have stayed in China long enough to be able to flag many rhetorical devices in the NYT articles. It turns out that I have met a number of people from Asia during that trip including my roommate who was from Ukraine.

    Now I am looking elsewhere for information. I am sure an increasing number of people will start to see the propaganda they are being fed on on a daily basis for what it is: mostly half-truths, big lies and a lot of misleading rhetoric.

    As far as Putin is concerned, I think he is baffled by how barbaric the Western society has become after siphoning the resources of the weaker people of the World for many centuries. Putin is concerned by the Western expansionism for very good reasons. The West is lying to itself. The driver is blind.

    You know what I really think? I think that whoever pays you to peddle your crap is wasting money. I happen to have friends who have been in the battle of Vukovar. My take on it is from people who have been there and regardless of who was right or who was wrong in the affair, the stellar incompetence of the JNA’s command is mind-boggling. It’s simple, until Ratko Mladić and Manojlo Milovanović were put in charge in Republika Srpska, Serb forces were commanded by imbeciles. Now, I don’t know for sure if it is stupidity or dishonesty from your part, but what I said clearly meant that incompetent cretins are not entitled to criticism of what others do when they have a record of being total failures.
    As for the Western loving part, obviously, again, I don’t know for sure if it is stupidity or dishonesty from your part, but anyone who has read my other comments knows what I think of the West. I happen to have been correspondent of SRNA in Paris and I happen to have worked in the office of the late prince Alexander Karadjordjević, son of prince Paul, on account of being a well informed guy who knows to connect dots together. I certainly won’t receive lessons of patriotism from communist morons who pissed on the sacrifice of my great-grandfathers in WWI and have managed to lose almost everything that Serbia won then.
    What puzzles me is that people like you have no chance of swaying anyone here with the “Putin is a traitor” mantra b/c everybody with a brain realises that it plays in the hands of the enemies of Russia. The majority of Unz readers are not average Westerners, if we discount paid trolls, most are mature people with above average IQ, loads of life experience, they keep themselves informed and they are not hysterics like you, in short they are way above your league. Again, I don’t know if it is stupidity or dishonesty b/c when someone writes what you write without experiencing cognitive dissonance, it can be due to either, but my observation at the beginning of this post holds, whoever pays you is wasting money.

    Re Vukovar: Nobody was discussing competence levels of the Yugoslav National Army at the time. I was only addressing your peddling of the exact same propaganda phrases that both Catholic Nazi Croat separatists and NGOs were/are peddling – “shelling”, etc. As if armies are supposed to hold hands and sing songs with separatists and mass murderers. So, you should be careful not to side with them even accidentally, as it may be the case here.

    Re Karadjordjevic: Dynasty Karadjordjevic are masons, anglophiles, croatophiles, yugophiles, and the biggest enemies of everything Serbian – especially Regent Alexander and Knez Pavle. Alexander even wanted to remove Serbian alphabet and force a latin alphabet one to please his beloved Croat mass murderers and cutthroats. Alexander ordered Serbian officers to attend Catholic masses to bring us “together”, while never ordering Croat or Austrian officers to attend OC church services. The list of his attempts to please his favorite murderers of Serbs seems endless. So being associated with them is quite sad and telling. I hope that you are an Orthodox Christian and neither a mason nor a member of anything associated with that sad “Dynasty”, that was brought to power by the British in a coup that included ritual and sadistic massacre of not only the King and the Queen, but the entire Obrenovic Dynasty, as you know. Serbia is occupied since 1903, and that is still the case, close to 120 years later, but will be free when the time comes.

    Re SRNA: Great! Have you had a chance to report on how many millions of German Marks has Radovan Karadzic received from Alija Izetbegovic to betray Serbs and General Mladic there repeatedly? The number I’ve heard was around 40 million GM (around $20M USD) to sabotage liberating Bihac operation, Igman operation, and many, many others.

    Re WW1/1914: Russia fell in 1917 not because they entered the war alongside their Serbian OC brothers, but because of their spiritual ruin and decline. Read about the letter from St. Seraphim of Sarov to the Tsar Nicholas II.

    Back to the main subject: I’ve provided ample evidence of Putin being a recruit of the Globalist and their servant to the highest degree possible considering that “leads” Russia, but you choose to use foul language and ad hominem to “argue”, not very OC, and did not address a single point, except with something to the effect of, “it was tough times when he took over 22 years ago – so what was he supposed to do in such short period of time?” How many more decades does he need?

    But still, Russia has been lucky to have Putin because he has managed to established effective governance in Russia when the country was in system collapse.

    Words mean something. In Putin’s case, they show that he’s articulate and literate — what we used to call a ‘statesman’ when we respected such things. No Western leader rises to this standard.

    Caveat? Maybe he doesn’t write his own speeches, or at least has assisance. Fair enough. But the mere fact that the quality of the speeches are so impressive says that the standard still means something in Russia.

    I am more than a little bit confused when I read and hear words from the Orange Cuckmeister where he repeatedly criticizes the Pedo Joe criminal administration over their very dangerous provocation of Putin and Russia, visi vi the reckless efforts of the jewish neo-cons to ignore the national security concerns of Putin and try to make Ukraine a member of NATO.

    Trump keeps claiming that Putin would have never invaded the Ukraine if he were still the President, but never really attempts to explain why. In his typical, egotistical, narcissistic fashion, I sense that he is trying to suggest that Putin was ‘afraid of him’, but he isn’t afraid of Pedo Joe because Pedo Joe is a wimp and a coward.

    I don’t believe that at all and had Trump not been cheated out his reelection, and remained in the White House – that would not have significantly altered the primary reason that Putin chose to invade the Ukraine. Unless, of course, what Trump is actually thinking – but not explaining – is that he would not have pursued the reckless idea of trying to make the Ukraine a NATO member and would have instead, agreed to a commitment to prohibit Ukraine from ever becoming a NATO member. That would have probably satisfied the perfectly reasonable and rational national security concerns that have been repeatedly expressed by Putin and the Russians dating back to 2014 or earlier. So, why won’t Trump admit this, instead of these subtle hints that Putin wouldn’t have the balls to do what was necessary to protect his nation from these psychopathic and mentally insane, drooling jewish neo-cons?

    I really have to say that I have very, very strong dislike of American politicians who behave as though they are 16 year old teenage boys who think it makes them sound more macho and manly to engage in these ‘Who has the biggest dick tough’ guy games of one up-man-ship with the leaders of other competitor nations. This was a characteristic of the absolutely loathsome and despicable Poppy Bush and his idiot son Jorge Wmd Bush, and I am sure Yeb would have been no different had that sleaze ball ever managed to wind up in the White House and have his finger on the nuclear button.

    I believe that the best way to ensure peace between the powerful nations is for the leaders of those nations to show respect in a two-way direction and to see the other side’s point of view whenever a conflict situation arises. Nothing Putin has expressed has not been rational and reasonable. On the other hand, everything that the 80 plus percent jewish infested Pedo Joe Administration has demanded has been arrogant, irrational, unreasonable and also extremely dangerous and reckless.

    It’s easy to see who are the bad guys in this conflict and it sure as heck is not Putin and the Russians.

    As to the timing of when the US began to demonize Putin it was preceded by an event whose exact time I do not recall but was on Putin’s final visit to the GWB White House.

    First though bring to memory how in the early days Putin had sought to work with the West: attended Davos and worked with Schwab (but who we now know from the recently surfaced 2017 video saw Putin as working for himself, not with), was pals with Kissinger, offered full Russian support in the War on Terror, mused about joing NATO etc.

    The event to which I refer was where Putin realised NWO saw him as working for them rather than with. He must have had an inkling Schwab saw him as just another junior player equivalent to Trudeau and Ardern. The White House event made him realize that Bush was the same.

    Remember the pic of GWB on the WTC rubble, megaphone in hand rallying the fire and rescue worker? Standing beside Bush was the fire chief and Bush had his arm draped across the fire chief’s shoulders. I have seen him do the same to other underlings eg Alan Greenspan. In other words letting them know he was Top Dog and was protecting them, he had their back.

    Well on this final White House event Bush and Putin walked across the White House lawns to a lectern to take questions from the press. Not two lecterns as usual for visiting heads of state or governments, just one. A journalist asked Bush how the Putin visit was going and Bush answered real swell and plonked his arm across Putin’s shoulders. So in public and in front of the world’s press Bush was demonstrating who was Top Dog out of the two of them.

    Putin stiffened and tried to stand tall very aware of what was being demonstrated and basically clammed up.

    Only a few months later Putin had started showing that he had set his face against US imperialism.

    Putin 22-year rule, or rather mismanagement, has brought disasters including: “country’s birth rate has plummeted to levels not seen since 1943”, “Life expectancy has fallen by 4.5 years.”, “In terms of the total population loss, Russia is first place in the world”

    Hmmm, that explains why Putin has an 84% approval rating with the Russian people – higher by FAR than any country in the corrupt Anglo-Zionist empire and its vassals.

    Putin took over Russia that was destitute, pillaged, and pilloried and then continued to keep it so.

    By ANY metric one chooses to utilise in terms of net worth/GDP per capita/suicide rates/health outcomes etc, Russians are much, MUCH better off than they were under Yeltsin.
    And all this achieved in around two decades. Considering the depths of despair Russians were experiencing under Yeltsin and the shambles that the Russian economy was when Putin inherited it, this is a REMARKABLE ACHIEVEMENT.

    Lastly, you said this :

    I dislike Putin not because CNN told me so, but rather because he’s a liberal globalist and a traitor to Russia.

    Let me translate that correctly for you, from the original Yiddish script that was handed to you by your controllers in the Apartheid Israeli state.
    What your statement should read is :

    ‘I [Anon 001], dislike Putin, absolutely because Zio-owned CNN told me so, but also because I am loyal to the (((tribe))) and I know that Putin, has done more to bring about the demise of my beloved ZOG than any man alive’.

    There, that’s better.

    Bottom Line: ZOG is imploding at a rapid rate. And is it does so, ZOG HQ in the City of London is getting increasingly desperate and has sent out an APB (All Points Bulletin) to all the sayanim like you to smear Putin at every opportunity.

    What made the T34 a winner was that the Russians put a French derived 75mm gun in the turret of the T34, thickened the frontal armour … Why was it ultimately a better massed produced tank than anything the Germans, Americans and British made?

    You got two out of three right, seeing as no mass produced American or British tank was in its league.

    That said, the German Tiger I and II variants, as well as the Panther ( PzKpfw V), would all run rings around the T34, EASILY demolishing it.
    Those of you that are sceptical about my claim above, need to watch this 5 min video titled ‘One Tiger Tank vs FIFTY (50) T-34s – A True Story’ :

    Yes people, you heard correctly. That German Tiger tank was hit SIXTY SEVEN (67) times by shells from the T34’s – with no appreciable damage to the former.

    Meanwhile, as good as the Tiger tanks were, ALL tank experts (without exception), rate the German Panther tank as the best of the mass produced tanks of WWII.

    To the extent that Soviet T34’s achieved some success is due to the ENORMOUS number that Soviet factories churned out during the war (tens of thousands), Vs only about 6000 Panther tanks and around 2000 Tiger I & II made by the Germans.

    Even more importantly, tanks are not known for how many miles per gallon of fuel they’ll travel.
    Their fuel consumption of more likely to be expressed in GALLONS PER MILE (especially for the Tiger variants which were incredibly thirsty due to their bulk).
    And the Soviets had fuel in abundance throughout the war while the Germans did not – the fuel refineries and sources for oil of the latter were bombed to oblivion by the Anglo-Zionist empire.

    Bottom Line: Had the Germans been given sufficient fuel for their tanks and fighter aircraft, the outcome of WWII may well have been very different indeed.

    I am not sure of your point. Our meddling in Ukraine unwise and more importantly unnecessary, in my view. The Russians lost despite having an inside track — that should speak volumes. The war with Germany suggestion makes no sense. This is not WWI or II Germany and the US are allies. Germany and Russia have been at odds, even before the Russian revolution.

    ——————————

    “It’s easy to see who are the bad guys in this conflict and it sure as heck is not Putin and the Russians.”

    I am unclear what you mean by “bad guys”. Russia is simply wrong on all counts to the invasion. None of their arguments withstand scrutiny.

    I am not an advocate for Nazis, same relational practitioners, child gender reassignment or any host of liberal agendas, However, none of that justifies war by Russia. Ukraine was not a threat. Nothing that was in play encouraged Ukraine to be a threat or to act out against Russia. In fact, everything that Ukraine sought and did was in effect to withdraw from Russia and be an independent country.

    The supposed overplay of the Mr and Mrs Kagan on the issue given them far too much credit. The struggles in Ukraine to clean up corruption — a system they inherited from the Russian style of doing business is not new nor is the issue over language. And Ukraine establishing Ukrainian as the official language did not result in a suppression of all others.

    They hate Putin because he’s a Man and they’re women

    You are aware (see stats and articles below) of the fact that Putin’s most loyal voters are (middle-aged and elderly Russian) women and that Russia is the most feminine, large country https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_sex_ratio in the world, right??? That’s also the reason for yesterday’s meeting with the mothers of (fallen) Russian soldiers https://www.unz.com/mwhitney/why-do-americans-hate-putin/#comment-5677066 Because they are his (electoral) base and he needs (Russian) women’s support to stay in power. Putin is precisely so popular in Russia, because he presents himself as “less manly/macho” than the “average” (Russian) man, i.e. he isn’t lazy, doesn’t drink, he’s charming, etc. If Putin were to run for political office in a less sex-ratio-skewed country, I don’t think he would have the same success and popularity with that type of (campaigning) strategy. The war in Ukraine will exacerbate the sex-ratio skew in Russia and make its population even less masculine. It’s amazing how most of the pro-Putin commentariat here don’t seem to have even the most basic knowledge and faintest idea about Russia’s demographics, “geno-history”, etc. https://www.unz.com/mwhitney/why-do-americans-hate-putin/#comment-5673876
    I’m actually myself (indirectly) pro-Putin, in the way and in the sense that I think that he has brought stability to the country and that he would probably be replaced/succeeded — if he were assassinated, etc. — by a much less stable/predictable new Russian leader. That’s actually also the reason why I mostly, so harshly criticize him and Russia’s stupid, incompetent, war-mongering conduct, decisions and policies, because they increase the probability of him being replaced/deposed, and I want him to stay in power as long as possible, or at least until a suitable, stable replacement for him has be found/decided upon.

    Most loyal electorate

    Statistics suggest what is behind this approach. At the beginning of 2017, there were around 10 million more women in Russia than men. Retired women make up one-third of the total population, and there are twice as many women in this age group as men. Older Russian women are regarded as highly disciplined when it comes to voting and they usually support Putin. According to a survey conducted in mid-February by the state opinion research institute WZIOM, about 76 percent of the women interviewed want to vote for Putin for president. Among men, Putin has almost 62 percent of the vote.

    Whitney then referenced that fake Russian collusion in the 2016 US election. In fact, this refers to one of the Ukrainian elections, but I am not sure which one. It must have been one where the pro-Russian candidate won. There is little to no fraud in Ukrainian elections. They’re quite clean.

    Why do Americans hate Putin? Because Jews control America, and Jews have hated Russia ever since Czar Alexander III told them to stop cheating Russian farmers.

    Russia represents everything weak-minded Americans are told to hate by the Jewish-controlled American media: whiteness, Christianity, flyover country, nationalism, traditionalism and populism.

    Whiteness: It’s only okay to be white if you’re totally woke and apologetic for your whiteness. White Russians are neither woke nor apologetic.

    Christianity: It’s only okay to be Christian if you’re totally woke (which is the opposite of being a Christian) and/or if you consider the Jews (who reject Jesus) God’s chosen people (which is also not Christian). Russians violate this rule.

    Flyover country: Russia’s flyover country is about 50 times the size of America’s flyover country. That’s 50 times as many square miles of territory for deplorables and rednecks to hide in and plot future Charlottesvilles.

    It’s just a short step from that to Holocaust Number Two.

    Dead white male culture: Russia has produced literary and musical works of genius that make American productions look a bit second-rate. That assessment might be a little bit unfair, but Americans have an inferiority complex that makes them hate those who they sense might be their betters. Enough of an inferiority complex, at any rate, that orchestra conductors in the U.S. only get the job if they have a foreign accent.

    Nationalism: Americans equate nationalism with Hitler – except when America is doing it.

    Traditionalism: America equates traditionalism with racism, sexism and homophobia. Russia is proud of its traditions. Women in Russia feel no pressure when it comes to having a job or being a housewife. Either one is acceptable. Instead of having slaves, Russians themselves were serfs and slaves (which is why they are called “Slavs”). So, no guilt feelings there.

    Populism: Populists force governments to prioritize the well-being of the people as a whole. That is what Putin wants for Russia. But this concept is alien in a country (the U.S.) in which parents send their young children to public schools where they are exposed to communist and LGBTQ propaganda and hardcore porn, told that they and their parents are terrible people if they’re white, told that they are descended from apes, and told that morality is just another narrative and good and evil are relative.

    Then the same children are encouraged to go fight and die in pointless wars that are mostly to benefit Israel.

    When the Jew lost power in Russia and communism fell there as a result, communism simply migrated over to America. It had to make a few adjustments, hybridizing itself with crony capitalism (as in China), but it remained an essentially Jewish enterprise. Americans know that the Jew completely controls them, just as the Jew controlled Russia when it was communist. Russia reminds them of their own humiliation, and this causes them to fly into a rage.

    The Germans didn’t mass produce the Panther. Even when they started to appear in operationally significant numbers it came too late and was a little outgunned. It’s engine tended to burn out quick and was a flop at the battle of Kursk 43.

    The Tiger was only available in very small numbers. Not a very good use of industrial capacity. Good for crew survivability though.

    The Russians hit a sweet spot with the T34. Perhaps a situation that can’t be replicated safely for a crew today but it was a war winning weapon. No mistake. 80,000 built approx.

    Let’s not forget that the capacity of the Wehrmacht to efficiently resist the Allies onslaught, let alone to carry offensive actions, was severely curtailed by the lack of fuel. The formidable Tigers stopped not because of the resistance of the Allies, but because they run out of petrol, like the Luftwaffe too. Ditto on the Eastern Front, especially after the Germans lost the Romanian oil fields. The T-34s never lacked abundant supplies of fuel.
    What the situation with fuel supplies for the Ukrainian forces?

    The Germans didn’t mass produce the Panther. Even when they started to appear in operationally significant numbers it came too late and was a little outgunned.
    It’s engine tended to burn out quick and was a flop at the battle of Kursk 43.

    The reason for the ‘quick engine burnout’ was because the Panther was rushed into combat at the Battle of Kursk in the summer of 1943 despite numerous unresolved technical problems, leading to high losses due to mechanical failure.
    Most design flaws were soon rectified by late 1943 and early 1944 and thereafter it was reliable.

    I noticed that you had nothing negative to say about the Tiger tanks (because other than their fuel consumption and cost/complexity to manufacture, there’s nothing negative that can be said about them).
    It didn’t escape me that you said that the Panther was a ‘little outgunned’.

    However, the fact of the matter was that while having essentially the same Maybach V12 petrol (690 hp) engine as the Tiger I, and even though it had a 75mm gun (Vs the 88mm on the Tiger), it had BETTER GUN PENETRATION than the latter.
    It was lighter and faster, and could traverse rough terrain better than the Tiger I. The trade-off was weaker side armour, which made it vulnerable to flanking fire. The Panther proved to be effective in open country and long-range engagements.

    This ability to destroy T34’s from long range proved especially telling, as the Panther could destroy the Soviet tanks whilst still being out of range of the enemy.
    Needless to say, for every Panther that was lost, MULTIPLES of the T34 were destroyed.

    As for the Panther not being ‘mass produced’, recognising that the Panther could potentially be a game changer on the battlefield, the Allied air forces went out of their way to target production of said tank and this severely disrupted ultimate production output.
    Manufactured in sufficient numbers, and assuming sufficient fuel could be be obtained for them, the Panther would’ve wreaked a lot of carnage on the Eastern front, where the majority of them were deployed.

    You misread your own source you provided: https://www.statista.com/statistics/1005416/population-russia-gender-age-group/

    In the 20-39 age range there are about 39 million Russians in total (male and female), and about 19 million of them are female. Plus, “with only 15% to 20% of applicants getting listed”, realistically there are about 1 million Russian women (200,000 times 5 (or 20%)) in that age range, who would like to emigrate from Russia, and that is just to America. This doesn’t even take into account all the Russian women going to the U.K., Canada, Germany, the E.U. in general, etc.

    At a minimum, probably 5% of all Russian women (about 1 million) in the 20-39 age range want to leave the country, but the number is likely even higher closer to 2 million if the European Union, the U.K. and Canada https://archive.ph/TZ7K7#selection-1547.0-1559.277 are all factored into the emigration equation. This is around 10% of all Russian women in that age range, which is not insignificant in the least, IMHO. Often, they are also the highly educated, which is doubly dysgenic: https://www.atlanticcouncil.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/The-Putin-Exodus.pdf

    Richard B. Spencer’s ex-wife is an example of this phenomenon, even though it’s just anecdotal evidence and she wasn’t a traditional “mail-order bride” https://archive.ph/TZ7K7#selection-1547.0-1559.277 But the reality is that she chose to “marry up”, so to speak, or engage in “hypergamy” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypergamy with a non-Russian man, and voluntarily decided to stay in the West, even though she was free to return to Russia and start a family there.

    Spencer married Nina Kouprianova in 2010, with whom he has two children. He separated from Kouprianova, a Russian-Canadian with Georgian roots,

    The persistence of the myth of the ‘qualitative’ superiority of the Tiger and Panther tanks over the ‘quantitative’ T-34 (as well as of the ‘qualitative’ superiority of German strategy, tactics, armaments, eminent skills, motivation, morale of the German soldier, over the ‘quantity’ of the drunken zombies of the Red Army) is a soothing balm for the ‘West’, which cannot come to terms that it lost all the wars against the ‘Untermenschen’. It is like the box match where the favorite punched mercilessly his opponent all the rounds, only to be KO in the last one, claiming that is unfair to be declared the loser since he scored more punches.
    They console themselves with the ‘ifs’: ‘if enough tanks would have been produced”, ‘if they would have enough fuel’, then… (actualized: ‘if’ the Ukrainians would get the German ‘Leopards’ and ‘Gepards’ (and the ‘Abrams’) then the Russian would be toast.
    In fact, they didn’t produce enough, and they didn’t have enough fuel at all times. Germans produced only 49-50,000 tanks, Russians 119,000 for the duration of the war. Not only that, but the yearly production of Russian tanks was at least double of what the Germans were able to produce.

    You claim Russia has Europe’s largest atheist population. That claim is meaningless, given that Russia is by far the largest country that could be called “European”. On a percentage basis, Russia does not have the most atheists. There are higher percentages of atheists in Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

    Russia does have a declining population, but I can’t find any information that sorts out whites from the rest of the Russian population. The white population of the United States (and in most countries that are or were majority white) has been declining.

    “Europe’s largest Muslim population.” Again, this claim is meaningless given that Russia is by far the largest country in Europe. Muslims have not established Sharia Law in Russia and they have not created “no-go” zones in Russia as they have in France, Sweden and Britain. The Soviet Union included many Muslims and, unlike the West, did not allow them to form a “state within the state.”

    You are right about alcoholism and abortion. But the U.S. is hardly a paragon in those areas.

    Censorship: We have all kinds in the U.S.: redacted documents, indiscriminate classification of documents, back-room crony capitalism, government collusion with social media to censor dissent, a mainstream media that is the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party, etc. In the U.S., censorship exists to prevent citizens from having a say (based on informed consent) in their own government. In Russia, censorship mainly exists to keep out malign foreign influence.

    You are right, I miscalculated, there are indeed ~20 million women in the 20-39 age range, which makes 200,000 1% instead of 0.5%, big deal.
    For the rest, everything you say is pure speculation based on your biased perception of Russian society. In reality, Russian women’s behaviour is no more dysgenic than Western women’s behaviour. Russia is not the problem, women’s delusions are the problem. For what it’s worth, when I was in Norway, every second prettier than average twenty something Norwegian young woman I met expressed the wish to leave Norway.
    There’s perception and there’s reality, and there’s wishing to do something and actually doing it. One million Russian women wanting to leave Russia doesn’t translate in one million leaving Russia. Heck, one million Russian women saying that they want to leave Russia doesn’t translate into one million being actually ready to leave Russia. Women like to keep their options open and in that age range, when they are single, they are notoriously unsatisfied, in Russia or in the West.
    Finally, even if 20% of Russian women aged 20 to 39 were problematic, it still would be less than in the West where a much greater proportion of women are too dysfunctional to ever hope of founding a stable family with them, let alone raise children to become decent functional individuals.

    No disagreement from me on those points of yours. My main point is, that there are very few, younger Western women who apply to be “mail-order brides” in Russia. I think, that point is hard to argue with, thus still stands. And I believe, the sex-ratio imbalance in Russia and many other additional, unfavorable socio-economic factors are reflected in that higher prevalence of “mail-order brides” from the former Eastern Bloc, play a major role in dysgenic dynamics (brain drains, etc.), generally work against the success of the country and its human capital stock, and are likely a symptom of (Putin’s) political mismanagement, as we discussed earlier (the following research and surveys were conducted pre-Ukraine conflict):

It should and could be a “win-win” outcome for both sides, if managed respectfully and properly/intelligently, i.e. without causing too much of a brain drain in Russia.

    Germans may have imagined that they were ‘the last hope for the world to rid itself of the Zionist parasite’ they helped installing in Russia from 1914 onwards.

    To be the 405th comment means talking to the wind 🙂

    I’m commenting from Greece, as a non-American, BEFORE reading the article .

    Of course the USA hates “Putin” (ie the Russian administration) and Putin himself! Because “Putin”/Putin exposes them as what they are.

    1. Putin reversed America’s devastating predation of Russia in the 1990s and threw out the USA’s “oligarchs”.
    2. Over 22 years Putin has rebuilt Russia to its natural greatness, as a republic, as a fully functioning democracy, as a military superpower, as an autarky, as a diplomatic hyperpower and most important of all, as a moral force in the world
    3.. Putin has stepped into USA’s other predations – in Syria, in Turkey, in Afghanistan, Iran and Khazakstan – openly thwarting them.
    4. By speaking honestly the strong countries of the world have openly aligned with Russia and the small countries follow in their wake.

    To most of the world the example set by Russia under Putin is an inspiration and a rescue! Greeks were not completely devastated by the Washington reversed OXI referendum of 2015 because Putin / Russia – the existence of – gave us hope. Fact. This is why Geoffrey Pyatt was sent to Greece immediately from Kiev: to separate Greece from Russia [secondly to make Greece the US’s military frontline in the face of failing relations with Turkey]. This is why a SOFA with Israel was forced on Greece by the US in 2015, in the wake of OXI. Israel now has a free hand in Greece and an air base. Israel now believes it controls Greece.

    The USA has exposed itself as a gangster regime: criminal, corrupt, undemocratic, a liar par excellence with no intention to ever keep its [empty] promises, immoral [depraved · dishonest · indecent · nefarious · obscene · pornographic · shameless …], and foremost a thief. Not to mention authoritarian and lawless. Betraying its own constitution, it is a totally degraded country in the eyes of the world, a country where those who dare to speak truth are eliminated in various ways. A country with the intellectual level of a moron. Predating its own people!

    The USA ignores this (and maybe does not understand it?) and keeps on lying, believing that its media [and arthritic iron fist] can substitute for facts. But the level of its lies is so low IQ and shameless that the more its media talks the more it digs its own grave in the eyes of the world.

    However I have faith that Americans [and its own increasing failure] can eventually eviscerate and eliminate this Monster.

    Yes, patriotism is the Unforgiveable Sin to Mr. Globaloney.

    My previous comment [no.406] only reflects the hatred of Washington felt even by its “allies” ie hostages. In Greece’s case we’ve been hit 3 times by Washington since WW2: the anglo-american induced “civil war” 1944-49; the Colonels regime [Stay Behind GLADIO] 1967-74; and Obama’s “Greek Crisis” in which IMF broke its own rules and the world’s largest “debt” was heaped on a country of 10 million to be paid off by its 4.9 million workers.

    There is also another issue, unaddressed. Orthodox Christianity, the original christianity, has never wavered in the Orthodox countries. Orthodoxy, even in the analysis of Samuel Huntington, is a separate civilisation from Western Europe. It comprises a band of countries stretching from the Arctic south to Ethiopia, separating Asia and Europe. The Anglo-Americans have been intent on destroying this last hold-out, with some paper success but definite Unsuccess. This religious / civilisational war is a Western obsession, since, operating on another level it has proved impervious and only gathere strength. An outrage in fact.

    Finally, do not assume that European peoples are on the US side. The south and east of Europe have traditionally had good relations with Russia: those countries closest to Russia show 70-82% support for Russia in this Ukraine war.

    By “Europe” journalists generally mean only London and Berlin along with the other protestant countries of NW Europe. Reflecting USA’s heritage and mindset.

  403. The short answer is “because the TV tells them they should.” There isn’t a thought in the average American mind that wasn’t placed there by the media.

    Boomers and Xers were raised on a steady diet of Cold War propaganda, so Russophobia comes naturally to them, like a comfortable old pair of jeans.

    As far as Millennials and Zoomers, Putin is Trump-adjacent. The Russians put Trump in the White House with a few lousy Facebook memes, remember?

    It’s easy to forget that a decade or so ago the TV was saying that Republicans were running on 80s foreign policy, and the Democrats wanted to hit that ol’ reset button with Vlad. Obama was recorded telling Medvedev to relay to Putin that he’d have more flexibility after his reelection.

    But then Putin gave a hard no on The Alphabet People, and that was unforgivable for Barry the Fag. Putin gave Bob Costas the worst case of pink-eye anybody ever saw during the Sochi Olympics and the rest is history.

    This makes the upper echelons of the U.S. political, power hierarchy now far less Jewish than in the previous decades:

    – Supreme Court: 1 Jew (Kagan), 2 Protestants and 6 Catholics.

    – House Leadership: 2 Protestants (McCarthy and Jeffries)

    – Senate Leadership: 1 Jew (Schumer) and 1 Protestant (McConnell)

    – Federal Reserve: Catholic Chair (Powell), (Religion unknown, could be Jewish) Vice Chair (Brainard)

    – Presidency: Catholic President (Biden), Protestant Vice President (Harris)

    Out of the 17 most important and powerful positions within the United States Government, (only) 2 (or at a maximum 3) are currently held by Jews. The Federal Reserve Chair and Vice Chair used to routinely be both Jewish for decades, and the Supreme Court had 3 Jewish Justices on the bench from 2010 to 2020 (2 since 1994). Jewish representation has therefore decreased by, give or take, around -50% over the last 2 years alone! From around 30% to 12% (or at a maximum 18% in case Lael Brainard is Jewish), which is remarkable, IMHO.

    3 high-profile members of Biden’s Cabinet are Jewish (Blinken, Yellen and Garland), and so is his Chief of Staff (Klain), but the three branches of the U.S. Government plus the Federal Reserve are much less Jewish than they used to be.

    Protestants are underrepresented relative to their share of the U.S. population by a factor of about -20% at about 35%. Catholics are overrepresented with about 50% or a factor of +150% over their share of the U.S. population. Jews are still the most overrepresented religious-ethnic group at about 12% to 15% or a factor of +300% to +400% over their share of the U.S. population, but much less so than before, when the overrepresetation was at times around +900%.
