In 2015, Vladimir Putin was asked by an interviewer to explain why “the countries that used to be parties to the Warsaw Treaty and today are NATO countries, such as the Baltic states and Poland, feel threatened by Russia. NATO has decided to create special forces to address these concerns. My question is whether the West is right in its determination to restrain ‘the Russian bear’, and why does Russia continue to speak in such a contentious tone?”

Putin must have been thinking, “The Lord hath delivered thee into my hands.” If you have spent time watching some of the interviews that Putin has done over the years, you know that he usually takes the premises of the New World Order by the horn and swings them back to their masters. This moves often kills those NWO agents politically and intellectually because those people, sad to say, cannot or does not want to think rationally. They deliberately abandon or dismiss practical reason and somehow expect to make sense in the political universe!

Putin has survived the New World Order onslaught because he is focused, and his distractors are not. He knows that the worldview that makes up the New World Order is philosophically incoherent and morally repugnant and worthless. He also knows that his job as a political figure is to articulate the truth in a manner that any rational person will understand, and truth will work itself out.

Putin was an admirer of the late Alexander Solzhenitsyn, who postulated quite rightly that truth will triumph in the end. So it seems that Putin finds it entertaining to put New World Order agents out of existence in the political world. He exposes them for what they really are: Satanists, people who want nothing to do with logic and reason and want to bring down the moral and political order. His response to the interviewer bears repeating here:

“US military spending is higher than that of all countries in the world taken together. The aggregate military spending of NATO countries is 10 times, note – 10 times higher than that of the Russian Federation. Russia has virtually no bases abroad.

“We have the remnants of our armed forces (since Soviet times) in Tajikistan, on the border with Afghanistan, which is an area where the terrorist threat is particularly high.

“The same role is played by our airbase in Kyrgyzstan; it is also aimed at addressing the terrorist threat and was set up at the request of the Kyrgyz authorities after a terrorist attack perpetrated by terrorists from Afghanistan on Kyrgyzstan.

“We have dismantled our bases in various regions of the world, including Cuba, Vietnam, and so on. This means that our policy in this respect is not global, offensive or aggressive. I invite you to publish the world map in your newspaper and to mark all the US military bases on it. You will see the difference.

“American submarines are on permanent alert off the Norwegian coast; they are equipped with missiles that can reach Moscow in 17 minutes. But we dismantled all of our bases in Cuba a long time ago, even the non-strategic ones. And you would call us aggressive?”

Russia has indeed a base in Syria, but it is necessary. They need to keep the United States in check there.

Obviously the Neocons and the Powers That Be didn’t want to listen then. In fact, for Putin to reason with them was like talking to an ATM machine. They would usually preface their remarks by saying things like, “Vladimir Putin, the former KGB…”

2016 was the year in which this “KGB” mantra became the cornerstone of Zionist or Neocon discourse. It was in 2016 that Politico put out an article titled: “Vladimir Putin resurrects the KGB.”[1] Other outlets such as the Washington Post repeated the same thing over and over again as if constant repetition was somehow a substitute for rational thought.[2]

But Putin again was not on the wrong side of history; his distractors were. In fact, the evidence supported what he was saying about US military bases virtually all over the world. Linda J. Bilmes of Harvard and Michael D. Intriligator of the University of California presented a paper in which they argued that

Today US military operations are involved in scores of countries across all the five continents. The US military is the world’s largest landlord, with significant military facilities in nations around the world, and with a significant presence in Bahrain, Djibouti, Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo, and Kyrgyzstan, in addition to long-established bases in Germany, Japan, South Korea, Italy, and the UK. Some of these are vast, such as the Al Udeid Air Force Base in Qatar, the forward head- quarters of the United States Central Command, which has recently been expanded to accommodate up to 10,000 troops and 120 aircraft.

“The US Central Command (CENTCOM) is active in 20 countries across the Middle Eastern region, and is actively ramping-up military training, counterterrorism programs, logistical support, and funding to the military in various nations.

“At this point, the US has some kind of military presence in Afghanistan, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, U.A.E., Uzbekistan, and Yemen.”

Tell me: has Russia been involved in “military operations across all the five continents”? Do they have military bases virtually all over the world? Serious scholars know that Putin’s political position is far more plausible than the worldview that has been propounded by the United States and NATO.

For example, military historian and academic Andrew J. Bacevich, who doesn’t even like Putin, has argued that NATO and the United States violated virtually every major agreement they made with Russia during the Cold War.[3] Stephen F. Cohen of Princeton and New York University has been saying similar things.[4]

In short, Putin is right when he denounces the New World Order and its agents. Let’s just hope that he keeps humiliating them throughout this year.

  1. I read the article and all and comments and agree with ‘ Amen” by Donald More in January 13, 2018.
    However I add.
    What is the point of feeling sorry for “Israel” when your Homeland is USA and you don’t see that ruling you is “The Black Spot” made 1) of mafia + …… Zion?
    When are you going to start prioritizing the enemies ideologues who then are the ones YOU hide behind Zion without seeing 1) etc.?
    To paraphrase Hal Hashby’s Chance the Gardner “life, like Zion, is just a state of mind.”

  2. Recently at the Valdai conference President Putin gave a short speech and then answered questions for over 4 hours. The man did this without aid of teleprompters or earpiece. He was very calm and precise with his words. Name me one Western politician with such capability. You can’t. Why? Because there isn’t one. I don’t believe it is for lack of skill, certainly there must be 1 capable man, rather, it is because they are told what to say and what they are told to say are lies, and they know this, and it’s for this reason they jumble words and misspeak. We are in dark times. Is it end time? Maybe? We’ll see. It’s up to the central Bankers and it’s their move. God bless Mr. Putin. God bless common sense.

  3. Israel remains the most important unacknowledged ‘enemy’ of the United States and, ironically, of Russia. International Jewry ( Jewish Institutions, especially financial institutions) are at the center of the New World Order and international terrorism. This is obvious after a careful gleaning of the available facts. On Israel’s role and that of International Jewry of transforming the world into a cesspool of corruption and exploitation, Putin is silent. So, how exactly effective is Putin against the NWO?

  4. Most sane people in the West would love Putin to be their head of state.
    Althou a nut case, one of our female politicians spoke in Parliament that she has been reading some of Putin’s speeches, and she found him excellent, then she was hit with a broadside, from the PM and opposition leader.
    Both blaming Putin for the invasion of Crimea etc etc
    Come to Aussie Vlad, I have a spare room!!!

  5. You are right, John. USA is disliked and cursed by many nations. Especially those who tasted the bombardments and color revolutions. It is hard and impossible to call my country militaristic. But whatever you say and try to do, the NWO will pervert it and try to escalate. Recent 20 years they even do not put masks or expose false flags- they do provocations directly, unprofessionaly, not hiding their job and intentions. I would like to say, that Russians mostly laugh at americans, but it has no evil. We, and the other people of the world hate those in Washington who give criminal orders, who terrorise the world, who doesn’t want me and you, John, to sit at the table of friends or making business. It may cause cognitive dissonance, but Russians have more democracy and freedom, than USA, folks.

  6. Where is the enormous amount of money coming from to sustain these outrageous bases all over the world? Some of them are even illegal as in Syria. It is obvious America is a war monger as directed by the thugs in Israel. Israel must be booted out of America and most of these unnecessary bases closed immediately before the bottom falls out and no more borrowed and printed fake dollars are available. End all payments to Israel. Let Israel fight their own wars and die fighting them. No more Americans should die for Israel. Put Netanyahu on the front lines. Israel must be deNuked in order to preserve world peace before they blow up the planet.

    • Israel did 9/11 to the U.S.:
      • “Larry Silverstein – is a Jewish American businessman from New York. Silverstein obtained a 99 year lease on the entire world trade center complex on 24 July, 2001. [3] The towers were in fact close to worthless, being filled with asbestos, [4] yet Silverstein “felt a compelling urge to own them”. Silverstein had breakfast in “Windows on the World” restaurant (located in North Tower 107th Floor) every morning. [5] but broke this routine on the morning of 11 September 2001. Silverstein’s two children, who also worked in the WTC, were also absent from work that day. Larry Silverstein was paid a little over $4.5 Billion in insurance money as a result of the destruction of the WTC complex. [6] Silverstein was on personal friendship terms with Zionist media-magnate Rupert Murdoch, former Israeli president Ariel Sharon, as well as Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu. Silverstein was such good friends with Netanyahu that, according to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz he would speak with him on the phone every sunday. [7]
      • Video – Where was Larry Silverstein on 9/11?”

    • Since our Congress has been totally corrupted and bought by Israel money, let us start to pass a Constitutional Amendment to rid our Country of the illegal evil influence of this tiny nation half way around the world who seeks to use our country to dominate the planet and start WWIII. All dual citizenships must be abolished and revoked immediately. All money and aid to Israel prohibited. All persons with foreign citizenship must be banned from holding any jobs in our government even with dual citizenship.

    • Apparently around $21Trillion Dollars has been ‘lost’ by numerous US government departments. The US is burning the candle at both ends and in the middle.
