Last week the world confirmed, Vladimir Putin may be the last true leader of humankind. How can I say this, you ask? Well, because the insane mainstream media proved it, that’s how. And The Guardian headline reads, “Killer, kleptocrat, genius, spy: the many myths of Vladimir Putin”. Get ready for yet another intellectual mind melt, as “the west” summons every demon to thwart the great Vladimir V. Putin.
A lot has changed in the last couple of weeks. For one thing, CNN unloaded twin six-guns into their own feet when a hidden video cam recorded one of their producers admitting the whole “Russia” narrative is about ratings. Like the cartoon character Yosemite Sam, America’s once venerable cable TV news giant blew the feet off any future possibility they’d be taken serious ever again. And for the globalist lefties who anchored their propaganda to CNN, the same comical high jinx will probably bring down their other famous tabloids, the Washington Post and the New York Times. In all honesty, Stanley Kramer, the man who directed the 1963 epic comedy “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”, could not have orchestrated a more fitting demise for western mainstream news. Baby Boomers reading this will identify, but for younger readers let me explain.
President Donald Trump has made an everlasting meme out of the term “Fake News”, or better yet “Really Fake News”. Trump has been the victim of the biggest media smear campaign in history, a smear campaign in which billionaire enemies own and/or operate most of America’s media. This we all know. But what the genius billionaires who control most of the American government do not realize, is how blatantly obvious the circus of media has become. Or, maybe they simply don’t care? Look at Trump from the pragmatic point of view, just for a second. Half the voters in America selected him as president, but somehow he is the world’s second most evil man for ALL of the media. Let’s examine the media coverage of the Trump-Putin meetup in Hamburg, just for a reference point.
The New York Times story headline read, “Russia Crows Over Putin’s Meeting With Trump”. The Washington Post Blog lead with, “Just how manly was that Trump-Putin summit?” And Bloomberg engaged in more wishful thinking with, “Trump Emerges From Putin Meeting With Cease-Fire and Little Else”. I could share more here, but you get the gist. Anything that either Trump or Putin do (or are suspected of doing), its used for ratings or flat out propaganda purposes by formerly influential western media. In the battle to grab eyeballs and convert conservative values, America’s technocrats and hedge fund heroes differ to stories about German Chancellor Angela Merkel rolling her cow-like eyeballs at Russia’s Putin. Like I said, it’s a circus. A silly, mind numbing, useless circus of idiotic propaganda – corporate owned media. And you don’t have to be born in the 50’s or 60’s to recognize it.
So how does all this make Vladimir Putin the “last true leader of humanity”? Well, for those who would challenge that Donald Trump is this leader, let’s remind you. Donald Trump is a businessman, a true autocrat, somebody used to giving orders and seeing them followed. While he does lead well, this characteristic does not make him an ideal leader for humanity. Donald Trump, for all his positives, will trade 20 years of prosperity for Americans for a “too thin” atmosphere 40 years from now. Like I said, he’s a businessman. Putin, on the other hand, has demonstrated a far more pragmatic and long-term brand of leadership. And his moniker bears religious values and core cultural reflection. In order to reveal what I mean, it’s necessary to quote from Kieth Gessen’s story on The Guardian, which I mentioned earlier. Gessen characterizes Vladimir Putin lore, just so:
“Putin’s recent ubiquity has brought great prominence to the practice of Putinology. This enterprise – the production of commentary and analysis about Putin and his motivations, based on necessarily partial, incomplete and sometimes entirely false information – has existed as a distinct intellectual industry for over a decade. It kicked into high gear after the Russian invasion of Crimea in 2014, but in the past few months, as allegations of Russian meddling in the election of President Donald Trump have come to dominate the news, Putinology has outdone itself.”
What better indicator of Vladimir Putin’s incomparable leadership of the Russian people can there be, than for a failed system of western oligarchy to despise him so? Gessen, for his part, goes on to describe “Putinology” in terms of its revelations about “us” as a human society. The Guardian writer makes many great points on Putin, and he misses the mark in characterizing the man too far toward the dictator side. However accurate or inaccurate his story may be though, it’s a perfect piece of evidence to support my own claim – for what would the makeup of the world’s greatest leader be? Does Putin represent his people better than any other world leader? Are Russians far better off with him at the helm? Or would they be better off under the guidance of some idiot socialist democrat there in Moscow? These answers are simple. Yes, Russians are protected and may well flourish under Putin. No, turning the world’s biggest country over to Rothschild pawns ready to carve the country into investment bits is the worst idea. As for The Guardian and the “moderate” view on Putin, not even the most accurate of stories dares to show Vladimir in a true light. The New York Times and the others paint with psychedelic colors what really should be a pen and ink drawing. Take Crimea, for an example.
In Gessen’s Guardian story, he acquiesces to the ruling western elite, their bitter Crimea moaning. Skillfully woven into the credible tit-for-tat of his “Putinology”, the Russian-born American novelist writes:
“Was it really worth international isolation, increasingly bothersome sanctions and the eternal enmity of the Ukrainian people to seize a beloved but past-its-prime resort area that Russians don’t even really visit any more? There was fear that the post-Maidan government of Ukraine might cancel the lease on the large Russian naval port in Sevastopol, but surely a genius might have handled the threat through something short of seizing the entire peninsula?”
