Putin is, according to the US mainstream media, the equivalent of the antichrist, the beast, or the head of the oligarchic mafia that is out to rule, and by implication ruin, the world.
And Donald Trump is to be eviscerated and hung on the cross of Russia. This canard is a bone the media will not let go of ~ this "guilt by association".
ED Noor: Do you remember all that ridiculous hoopla about those obscene girls who defiled a Christian Church during Mass and then were given world support as victims against Putin's "homophobic anti free speech" regime? Or the disgraceful reporting and treatment given Russia during its successful Winter Olympics as Sochi?
ED Noor: This handshake was immediately termed "the most closely analyzed handshake in history." and the masses set out to explain finger and thumb placement.
So, Russia is anathema and a detestation because they want to dominate Europe and take over the world? Well, let's see. I think that would be ... us ~ the United States of America with over seven hundred military bases in over one hundred countries. Russia? Not so much. Less than ten military bases outside of Russia.
So, hmmmm, we hate them and we demonize them because they are godless? Nah, actually that would be us. They are bringing back traditional values and Putin is a professed Christian, going to confession to an Orthodox Russian priest once a week according to more than one source. In the months of May, June, and July millions of Russians stood in lines sometimes a mile long to venerate the relics of 4th century Bishop St. Nicholas on display in a glass case in Moscow in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow, rebuilt under President Putin.
And, here's the kicker: our Overlords can justify spending insane amounts of money on more nuclear bombs and bigger and better weapons ~ if the Media-Military-Industrial Complex crowd can fabricate a scary enough enemy for us to hate, fear ~ and potentially drop the bombs on (or at least on their allies).Heck, we've hated the Russians since the late, great Zbigniew Brzezinski started some serious anti-Russian strategems. As Ramin Mazaheri, the chief correspondent in Paris for PressTV, states,
"Zbig ended the détente led by Nixon as Carter, not Reagan, restarted good, old-fashioned, American Russophobia: selling the Soviets computers embedded for industrial sabotage; the propaganda effort of the 1980 Olympic Boycott; the US grain embargo to starve the Russian people; the arming of the Taliban's forerunners to destabilize a left-wing government in Afghanistan, which resulted in helping unleash Islamic terrorism on the world, etc."
"But his strict adherence to ideas in which virtually every issue circled back to the threat of Soviet domination was remarkable.”
~ Remember the dossier of Trump's non-existent "golden showers"?~ How about the Washington Post's fake news of "The List" of 100 Russian-front propaganda sites?~ Trump allowed Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg to eavesdrop on his calls in January to Lockheed Martin, never happened.~ President Trump's father had a pair of racist ads produced in the late 1960s for a potential run for mayor of New York City. Trump's dad never even ran for mayor. And, on it goes. Hey it's nasty business but someone has to put the Rooskies in their place.
Reuters, August 2, 2016, says even Obama piled on: "So, it is with concern that folks are lining up at the mic to call Russian President Vladimir Putin just that. President Obama called him a "thug," as did presidential hopeful Marco Rubio, who added "gangster" for good measure. Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan's spokesperson found fault with Putin and his whole nation, even adding an adjective:
'Russia is a global menace led by a devious thug.' "
ED Noor: Actual proof of Russian meddling in the American elections. This young Russian woman stood holding this sign supporting Trump over Clinton!
Putin's unfaltering popularity has been remarkable because it appears to be untied to his country's recent economic troubles," the survey reads.
Putin does not bow to globalist demands.He is not in the pocket of Israel.He does not bend over for United States meddling and bombing all over the world.He does not buy "regime change" in the name of "American Exceptionalism".He is a powerful force, and the real and legitimate interests of his country demand he stand in the way.And, therefore, he must be demonized.
Seek to be friends with all as far as possible,entangling alliances with none.
Are they compromised? Threatened? Blackmailed (who doesn't have dirt somewhere)? Or, did they simply want to fit in? They undoubtedly suspect that if they make too many waves the "JFK solution" is in the wings.
There are various theories, and all, or some of each many be at play:
1. Some in the USA think the reason Putin is demonized is because he defied international oligarch money power, which emerged in Russia in a big way immediately following the fall of the USSR circa 1991. As these vultures were trying to pick the struggling Russian economy clean, Putin threw some of these Oligarchs out of his country, jailed others, and still others fled before they could be next. This is why, above and beyond everything else, it is specifically Putin who is being targeted. This crowd feels "they" can "do business" within Russia once again if Putin is removed. Some of these power brokers were Zionists who hold huge sway in global intrigues.
"As the twentieth century draws to a close, the United States has emerged as the world's only superpower: no other nation possesses comparable military and economic power or has interests that bestride the globe. Yet the critical question facing America remains unanswered: What should be the nation's global strategy for maintaining its exceptional position in the world? Zbigniew Brzezinski tackles this question head-on in this incisive and path-breaking book. 'The Grand Chessboard' presents Brzezinski's bold and provocative geostrategic vision for American pre-eminence in the twenty-first century. Central to his analysis is the exercise of power on the Eurasian landmass, which is home to the greatest part of the globe's population, natural resources, and economic activity. Stretching from Portugal to the Bering Strait, from Lapland to Malaysia, Eurasia is the 'grand chessboard' on which America's supremacy will be ratified and challenged in the years to come. The task facing the United States, he argues, is to manage the conflicts and relationships in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East so that no rival superpower arises . . ."
And, the Ruling Elite which fully supported this "Grand Chess Board" strategy was manifested in PNAC ~ again, the initials for "The Project for the New American Century". The founders of this group were topmost NeoCon William Kristol (also founder of the "Weekly Standard"), and a relatively obscure author and columnist, Robert Kagan, who is well known in NeoCon Circles, but describes himself as a "liberal interventionist."
ED Noor: The Oded Yinon Plan aka The Greater Israel Agenda as proposed by Neocons and Zionists, intended to be the seat of the Jew/New World Order during the International reign of Pax Judaica, as promised apparently, to the Zionists. What people do not understand is that this Greater Israel as planned will be greater in size than the United States. Israel has never had plans to remain a small country; its imperialist ways are a plague upon its neighbours, especially the Palestinians.
Award winning journalist, Seymour Hersh, researched the 2013 incident at that time and concluded that it was not Assad who gassed his own people, but that the chemical attack was done by US-backed rebels who did it as a false flag (done by one group, blamed on another) to justify the immediate US invasion of Syria for the purpose of toppling Assad and installing a US / Israeli puppet.

This entire Shadow Government band of operatives is like spoiled children who have always gotten their way their entire lives. They are beside themselves and you see their tantrums playing out every day in the MSM. Such as MSNBC and CNN which are calling for Trump's impeachment (over crimes and evidence yet to be found) almost 24 hours a day.
Trump is a wild card.He cannot be controlled and reigned in like Obama.He has called them out.He has outed their fake news.He has made decisions they despise.If they can hang him on the cross of Russiathey can kill two birds with one stone.
ED Noor: I share the above hope, but am not quite so optimistic.
