Vladimir Putin – Straight From The Horse’s Mouth by GeneralBiati(m): 10:31pm On Nov 10, 2016
Vladimir Putin in particular, and
Russia in general, have been the
focus of an intensive high-drama
propaganda campaign of late. Are
you buying it? For the time
being, Russophobia has replaced Islamophobia as the
driving force behind the lies. Various US officials have been
frantically warning Americans
that the Russians are behind
everything: hacking the DNC,
controlling Trump, influencing the
election and breaking the Syrian ceasefire agreement. They might as well add making
your girlfriend break up with you,
making your toast get burnt and
making your car run out of fuel
for all the evidence they have
presented. Many of these totally unfounded allegations stem from
(naturally) the Clinton campaign,
home to career
criminals Bill and Hillary Clinton, who are desperately seeking to find something to gain
some sort of shred of popularity
or advantage over Trump, who
fills up arenas with 1000s of
people more easily than Clinton
can fill a high school gym with 50. Many US officials and war hawks
are trying to get in on the
action; CIA man Mike Morell indicated it would be a good idea to covertly kill
Russians to make them “pay a price”; Hillary Clinton called Vladimir Putin the “grand godfather of extreme
nationalism” and blamed him for the rising popularity of right-wing
leaders; and even standing
VP Joe Biden came out and said that, “We’re sending a message to Putin … it will be
at the time of our choosing
and under the circumstances
that have the greatest
impact”. It seems there is no depth to
which some US leaders
won’t stoop in order to gain some
political advantage, even it means
lying, demonizing and destroying
geopolitical partnerships in order to garner a few brownie points. VLADIMIR PUTIN: IT’S
ALL ABOUT
DISTRACTION DURING
ELECTION SEASON You would think Russian
President Vladimir President
would be agitated by all of this
mud-slinging. At times he has
been, for instance when
he issued a warning a few months ago about an
impending WW3 due to NATO’s constant aggression and
advancement towards Russian
borders. However, judging by his
own words and mostly calm
demeanor, he has seen through
the agenda and understands what is going on. Putin spells out
how it’s all inflamed rhetoric
before an election season, an old
trick used by politicians to
distract when they have no
meaningful solutions for internal and domestic problems. Here is Vladimir Putin in his
own words: “You can expect
anything from
our American
friends … the
only novelty is
that for the first time, on the
highest level,
the United
States has
admitted
involvement in these activities,
and to some
extent
threatened [us] –
which of course
does not meet the standards of
international
communication.
As if we didn’t
know that US
Government bodies snoop on
and wiretap
anyone?
Everyone
knows this … Apparently,
they are
nervous. The
question is why.
I think there is a
reason. You know, in an
election
campaign, the
current governmen
carefully crafts
a pre-election strategy, and
any
government,
especially when
seeking re-
election, always has unresolved
issues. They
need to show, to
explain to the
voters why they
remain unresolved. In the US, there
are many such
problems …
for example, the
massive public
debt is a time bomb for the
US economy
and global
financial system

more examples can be cited in
foreign policy …
in these
conditions,
many choose
to resort to the usual tactics
of distracting
voters from
their problems
… try to create
an enemy and rally the nation
against that
enemy … Iran and the
Iranian threat
did not work
well for that.
Russia is a more
interesting story.” And that’s exactly what this
whole thing is: a giant story.
However, as Voltaire once said, if
you can make someone believe
absurdities, you can make them
commit atrocities. Let’s see what else Vladimir Putin has to say on
other topics of interest. RUSSIAN HACKING: A
LAUGHABLE CLAIM SO
THE CLINTONS AND DNC
CAN TRY TO AVOID
CULPABILITY Let’s face it: the whole
Russophobia affair is about
avoiding blame, dodging
responsibility and evading liability.
Thanks to WikiLeaks, Project
Veritas and many other sources, we know the entire Hillary Clinton
campaign has been rigged
beyond belief. Fake primaries,
fake speeches, fake images,
fake videos, fake crowds, fake
supporters and fake debates. There is seemingly no depth of
criminality to which that woman
won’t sink. She’s selling out the
presidency before she even gets
there, such as the stunt of trying
to promise future presidential executive orders to mega donors.
There is not a shred of evidence
that Russia is affiliated with
WikiLeaks or behind any of the
DNC hacks. As this Zero Hedge
article NSA Whistleblower: US Intelligence Worker Likely
Behind DNC Leaks, Not
Russia states: “On “Judge
Napolitano
Chambers,” the
Judge said that
while the DNC,
government officials, and the
Clinton
campaign all
accuse the
Russians of
hacking into the DNC
servers, “the
Russians had
nothing to do
with it.”
Napolitano then mentioned
Binney, arguing the
veteran and
whistleblower
who “developed
the software that the NSA
now uses, which
allows it to
capture not just
metadata but
content of every telephone call,
text message,
email in the
United States of
every person in
[the country]” knew the NSA
had hacked the
DNC — not the
Russians. If Judge
Napolitano and
Binney are right
and the NSA did
hack the DNC,
what was the motive? According to
the
Judge, “members
of the
intelligence
community simply do not
want [Clinton] to
be president of
the United
States.” “She doesn’t
know how to
handle state
secrets,”
Napolitano continu
And since “some of the
state secrets
that she
revealed used
the proper true
names of American
intelligence
agents operating
undercover in
the Middle
East,” some of these agents
were allegedly
captured and
killed, prompting
NSA agents to
feel compelled to act. Whether
NSA agents
hacked the DNC
or not, one thing
is clear:
there’s no real evidence linking
the DNC and
Arizona and
Illinois voting
system hacks to
the Russian government.” THE MYTHICAL
“RUSSIAN THREAT” Vladimir Putin directly addressed
another mythical story, that of the
so-called Russian threat and Russian aggression, at the recent Valdai forum in Sochi from October
24-27, 2016: “There is
another
mechanism to
ensure the
transatlantic
security, European
security, the OC
security and
their attempt at
turning this
organization (NATO) into an
instrument of
someone’s
political
interests. So
what the OC is doing is simply
void. Mythical
threats are
devised like the
so-called
Russian military threat. Certainly
this can be
(used to) gain
some
advantage, get
new budgets, make your allies
comply with
your demands,
make NATO
deploy the
equipment and troops closer to
our border …
Russia is not
trying to attack
anyone. That
would be ridiculous …
The population
of Europe is 300
million … and
the population
of the US is 300 million, while
the population
of Russia is 140
million, yet such
menaces are
served as a pretext.
Hysteria has
been fueled in
the US with
regard to
Russia’s alleged influence with
the current
presidential
election. Is there anyone
who seriously
thinks that
Russia can
influence the
choice of the American
people? Is the
US a banana
republic? The
US is a great
power. If I’m wrong please
correct me.” Here’s what he had to say about
who the real aggressor is when it comes to the US (around and
Russia: “Is it known to
you that Russia,
in the 90s,
completely
halted (as did
the USSR) any strategic
aviation in the
further afield
regions of
patrol, i.e. not in
the closer abroad. We
halted such
activity
completely. US
geostrategic
aviation however, with
nuclear
weapons on
board. They
continued to
encircle us! What for? Who
are you
concerned
about? Or why
are you
threatening us? We continued
with the non-
patrol year after
year. It is only
since about 3
years ago that we restarted
aviation patrol
further abroad. Which party is
the provocateur
here? Is it us? We have only 2
military bases
abroad. They
are known
areas of
terrorism dangers … US bases on
the other hand
are all over the
world. And you
are telling me
that I am the aggressor? Have
you any
common sense? What are US
forces doing in
Europe, including
nuclear
weaponry?
What business have they got
there? Listen to
me. Our military
budget, while
increased
slightly from last year, in the
dollar
equivalent, is
about US$50
billion. The
military budget of the Pentagon
is almost 10
times that
amount. $575
billion, I
think Congress singed off on.
And you’re
telling me I’m
the aggressor
here? Have you
no common sense at all? Is
it us putting our
forces on the
border of the
US? Or other
states? Is it NATo, or who,
that is moving
their bases
closer to us?
Military
infrastructure! It’s not us. Does
anyone even
listen to us? Or
try to have
some kind of
dialogue with us? The
repeated
answer we get
is ‘mind your
own business’
and ‘each country can
choose its own
security
measures’. Very
well, so will we
… And finally, on
the antiballistic
missile defense
system, who
was
it that exited from the treaty
which was vital
to the entire
system of
international
security? Was it us? No. It was
the States. In a
one-sided way,
they simply
withdrew from
the treaty. Now they are
threatening us,
turning their
missiles towards
us, not only
from Alaska, but also from
Europe too … We want to
develop normal
relations in the
sphere of
security, in the
fight against terrorism, in the
non-proliferation
of nuclear
weapons. We
want to work
together with you … so long
as you want
that too.” US REPEATEDLY BROKE
ITS PROMISES TO
RUSSIA AND
DESTROYED TRUST The Western MSM is so one-
sided in its coverage of
geopolitical events like Ukraine
and Syria. Anyone not toeing the
line with US-UK-NATO interests
is painted in a bad light. In point of fact, it has actually been the
US who has been breaking
agreements with Russia since the
end of the Cold War. US leaders
lied to Russian leaders at the
time, by promising that NATO would not extend any further
eastward, and possibly even
hinting that Russia could join
NATO. As Eric Zuesse explains
in his article America Trashes NATO Founding Act; Rushes
Weapons to Russia’s
Borders: “The
NATO Founding Act was agreed to between the
US and Russia
in 1997 in order
to provide to
Russia’s leader
Boris Yeltsin some modicum
of assurance
that America
wouldn’t invade
his country.
When his predecessor
Mikhail
Gorbachev had
ended the
Soviet Union
and its Warsaw Pact military
alliance in 1991,
the
representatives
of US President
GHW Bush told him that NATO
wouldn’t move
«one inch to the
east» (toward
Russia), but as
soon as Gorbachev
committed
himself to end
the Cold War,
Bush told his agents,
regarding what
they had all
promised to
Gorbachev
(Bush’s promise which had been
conveyed
through
them), «To hell
with that! We
prevailed, they didn’t». In other
words: Bush’s
prior
instructions to
them were
merely his lies to Gorbachev,
his lies to say
that the US
wouldn’t try to
conquer Russia
(move its forces eastward to
Russia’s
borders); but,
now, since
Gorbachev was
committed and had already
agreed that
East Germany
was to be
reunited with
and an extension of
West Germany
(and the
process for
doing that had
begun), Bush pulled that rug
of lies out from
under the end of
the Cold War
…” Bill Clinton carried on
the great American legacy of
exceptionalism (that is, excepting
themselves from obeying
international law) spearheaded by
Daddy Bush of surrounding and dominating Russia by allowing
NATO into the Czech Republic,
Hungary and Poland. Russia got
shafted by trusting the US
numerous times after the fall of
the Soviet Union. Here’s Vladimir Putin once again on America’s broken promises (in April 2016): “In the early
2000s, we
agreed with the
Americans
to destroy
weapons-grade plutonium, on
both sides. We
were talking
about the
excessive
amounts that were
manufactured
by both the US
and Russia. This
is the
enriched uranium from which
nuclear weapons
are made.
34000 tonnes,
from both sides.
We signed an agreement, and
decided that this
material would
be destroyed in
a specific
manner. It would be destroyed in
an industrial
way – for which
special plants
needed to be
built. We fulfilled our obligations –
we built the
necessary plant.
Our American
partners did not.
Moreover, recently they
announced that
rather
than destroy
the enriched materi
in the manner that we agreed,
and signed an
international agree
on, that they
would dilute it
and store it in a holding capacity.
This means they
retain the
potential to
bring it back … Surely our
American
partners
must understand
that, jokes are
one thing, such as creating
smear
campaigns
against Russia,
but questions of
nuclear security are another
thing entirely …
they must learn
to fulfill their
promises. They once said
they would
close down
Guantanamo.
And? Is it
closed? No.” Incidentally, this is the exact
same plutonium agreement which
made the news last month, when
as reported on October 3rd,
216, Russia suspended their deal with the US on
disposal of plutonium from decommissioned nuclear
warheads. A decree signed by
Vladimir Putin lists “the radical change in the environment, a
threat to strategic stability
posed by the hostile actions
of the US against Russia, and
the inability of the US to
deliver on the obligation to dispose of excessive
weapons plutonium under
international treaties, as well
as the need to take swift
action to defend Russian
security” as the reasons for why Russia chose to suspend
the deal. CONCLUSION: WAKE UP
AND SMELL THE
RUSSOPHOBIA Expect Vladimir Putin and Russia
to keep being demonized by the
Clintons – and more importantly
the NWO manipulators who so
desperately want them in power.
Although the Clintons are a powerful modern American mafia
family, replete with a long body
count behind them, it’s important
to remember they are lackeys for
far greater and more pervasive
powers (check out some of Hillary’s lovey-dovey letters
to Lynn Forester de
Rothschild here). There’s a lot at stake here. Right now, Vladimir
Putin and Russia are being used
with the sole purpose of getting
Clinton elected. Although Putin is
not perfect and has his own dark
side, he deserves respect for standing his ground and refusing
to become another US puppet. If
we are to believe his own words,
he has no qualm with Americans
or even America itself, but rather
the selfish, imperialistic and murderous agenda of the NWO
agents running the USA: “We have a
great deal of
respect and
love for the
United States,
and especially for the
American
people …
[however] the
expansion of
jurisdiction by one nation
beyond the
territory of its
borders, to the
rest of the
world, is unacceptable
and destructive
for international
relations.” It’s up to the American public to
switch off CNN (Clinton News
Network) and all the other
duplicitous MSM channels and
get truly informed. Vladimir Putin
is reaching out his hand to America, in the hope that enough
Americans can reclaim their
country and work together with
other nations in peace. On the
issue of Vladimir Putin and
Russia, the MSM is not just one- sided, it’s outright lying.
