The Vested Power Brokers Are Making Putin Public Enemy No. 1


by Phil Butler, New Eastern Outlook:

It came to me like a bolt from the sky. The reason nothing ever changes is because powerful forces want things this way. In chaos and crisis, I mean. It’s been right there in front of us, all along. But it took an interchange in 2018 between Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, and American journalist Megyn Kelly to smack me awake. What’s interesting, is how easy it is to see who these “forces” are, and who is creating the narrative that fuels today’s fearsome reality.


A previous discussion between Kelly and Mr. Putin in St. Petersburg turned into an NBC News American propaganda campaign to put Russia on the hot seat with the American public, and to set the stage for renewed tensions because of alleged Russian interference in US domestic affairs. The series of meetings and interviews between Putin and the American journalist were spun by NBC making it appear as if Kelly were some kind of superhero investigative journalist pitted against some arch-villain. The story ended up with the title “Confronting Putin”, and the network spun the yarn like an old Korean War era newsreel. The special began with Kelly standing in her fur coat outside St. Basils Cathedral in Red Square.

She opens by stating that Putin is the man, “many American officials believe has launched a cyberwar on American democracy.” The veteran journalist even insists that Putin was, at the time, trying to “burnish his tough-guy image”, in the days leading up to his re-election bid. What’s funny for me now, is that no one seemed to take note of the American TV network doing its part to interfere in Russian affairs. Kelly says she returned to confront Putin “armed with new evidence” of the Kremlin’s complicity in a cyberattack on the US system, but she only brings renewed allegations about the Internet Research Agency, a cock and bull yarn the New York Times cooked up in 2015, using a Russian SPAM marketing agency as some kind of James Bond 007 Spectre cyber spoof. I won’t dive off into the so-called “Troll Farm” here, since I’ve debunked that story in my book and many internet reports. It’s more important to focus on western media and their agents.

Kelly’s agenda in the interviews, and NBC’s directed broadcasts, reveal for any PR professional key pages from the propagandist’s toolkit: ad nauseum repetition; appeals to authority, fear, prejudice, patriotism, and a story the common people will identify with and believe. The whole cyberwar fantasy, the story The Agency, and subsequent stories serve to fortify the liberal world order’s agenda. NBC’s final cut made was a chop job to show what the bosses of the conglomerate Comcast, who own NBC, wanted the American public to see. Now allow me to present the powerful people behind our unchanging world in crisis.

Comcast’s board of directors are corporate breadcrumbs that lead to the people who want Putin and Russia as our common enemy. That is until Putin is gone and Russia can once again fall prey to corporate butchers bent on chopping the world’s biggest natural resource bank into manageable bits. Dupont’s still run America, in case you did not know. And, the company’s CEO Edward D. Breen is on the board at Comcast. Before I go on, start thinking about agribusiness, materials science, and bioscience grafted with the world’s 2nd biggest communications network. Also on Comcast’s board, is Kenneth J. Bacon, the former Fannie May VP who probably (in my opinion) helped orchestrate the collapse of Wall Street that led to the creation of almost 2,000 new billionaires between 2008 and the present. Another Comcast board member connects with Samuel Irving Newhouse Sr., the son of a Jewish Russian Empire immigrant who founded Advance Publications. This media conglomerate owns Discovery Channel, Condé Nast, and the digital social media site Reddit, just to name a few. Also on Comcast’s board are Jeffrey Honickman, CEO of Pepsi-Cola Bottling (13 percent market share in Russia); Maritza Montiel, former deputy chairman and CEO of Deloitte; David C. Novak, former chairman and CEO of YUM! Brands (KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell in 135 countries). These and many others have a vested interest in Putin NOT being president of Russia.

Digging into each of these companies, I found deals popping up in Russia as a common thread. Take Ramon Laguarta, who is the current PepsiCo CEO, he was instrumental in the buyout of Russian dairy and juice company Wimm-Bill-Dann, a deal valued at $5.4 billion for the American company as the head of PepsiCo Eastern Europe back in 2010. Looking at Comcast board member Gerald Hassell, he was the CEO of The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation, the world’s biggest custodial bank, and one of the oldest banks in the world. I’ll bet few reading my report know that BNY Mellon the bank founded by Alexander Hamilton still exits. Furthermore, few Americans have the time or energy to understand the significance of the US Treasury naming BNY Mellon the master custodian of the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) bailout fund during the financial crisis of 2007 to 2010. Are any of you making connections here? Bacon, Fannie Mae, more than 1,600 new billionaires, media, propaganda?
