Putin, a criminal and incompetent president, is an enemy of his own people

We do not endorse the following article but post it for two reasons:
First it serves as a useful pointer to where relations with Russia are heading.
Secondly, it is modern-day propaganda on par with the very worst from the Cold War and illustrates a growing polarisation between Russia and the West. Together with Boris Johnson telling President Putin that there will be “no normalisation of UK-Russian” ties it suggests a hardening of attitudes.
It also pointedly ignores the fact that Putin has totally turned Russia around in the past two decades. Contrary to what Simon Tisdall claims, Russia’s economy is not “in terrible shape”. It is in fact showing solid if unspectacular growth. I can personally attest to this, as over the past 18years that I’ve been visiting Russia I’ve seen a steady improvement in the infrastructure, the services like banking and even the quality of the food available in Moscow supermarkets.
Crucially, Russia’s agricultural sector is booming. Having grown as a food exporter over the past two decades, Russia is now the world’s foremost wheat producer.
This is all happening despite Western sanctions, a point that Tisdall largely glosses over.
Putin is the one man who stands in the way of total Anglo-America-Zionist plans and the chaos that would ensue. This is why Simon Tisdall writes, or was probably instructed to write:
Putin’s is the face of the enemy. Henceforth he must be recognised as such.
Like I said, what follows is propaganda on par with the very worst from the Cold War. Ed.

News that Vladimir Putin, Russia’s latter-day tsar, is making plans to cling to power indefinitely comes as no  surprise. All the same, it is deeply worrying for Putin’s prey – principally the Russian people and the western democracies.

Putin, 67, has run Russia, as president and prime minister, for 21 years, a feat of political longevity surpassed only by Joseph Stalin. Like Stalin, he has made many enemies and caused untold misery along the way.

Russia under Putin’s grim tutelage has grown notorious for cronyism and corruption on a vast scale, repression of domestic opponents and free speech, and military aggression and disruption abroad.

Again like Stalin, retirement is not a safe option for the ruthless ex-KGB spy who normalised assassination as a modern-day tool of state policy. To yield power would be to invite retribution, legal or physical.

Yet it appears Putin does not want to emulate out-and-out dictators in other countries by making himself president-for-life – the path chosen by China’s Xi Jinping. He values a veneer of democratic legitimacy.

So under proposals unveiled last week, Putin could assume a newly powerful post of prime minister in 2024 when his presidential term ends. Or he could become chair of the State Council, a body he created. Both jobs can be held indefinitely.

Putin also has options to be speaker of the Duma (parliament) or leader of its main party, United Russia, thereby exercising power behind the scenes in the manner of Jaroslaw Kaczyński, leader of Poland’s Law and Justice party.

Whatever he chooses to do, the powers of any presidential successor will be clipped, there will be new term limits, and the ability of hostile oligarchs and emigre Russians – 7% of the population – to challenge him will be curbed.

The accompanying, enforced resignation of the entire government, including the prime minister, Dmitri Medvedev, is Putin’s attempt to reset his administration before Duma elections next year. Analysts say he feared Medvedev’s unpopularity – he has been accused of corruption – was beginning to rub off on him.

His appointment as prime minister of a non-politician, Mikhail Mishustin, an old ice hockey chum and pliable tax chief, is meanwhile seen as a clumsy way of denying a platform to potential rivals.

Although these changes are dressed up as desirable constitutional reforms, they clearly serve one common purpose: establishing Putinism in perpetuity. By showing he has no intention of retiring, Putin hopes to nip a possible succession battle in the bud.

All this may be good for Putin, but it is thoroughly bad for Russia. In any free and fair election, his criminal legacy of economic incompetence, abuse of power and shameless venality would be sure to sink him without trace. But free and fair elections now look ever more remote, especially following the brutal suppression of pro-democracy protesters in Moscow last summer.

On the contrary, Putin grows ever more intolerant of any form of actual or suspected opposition, whether it be in the form of civil society organisations, the media, or courageous, much persecuted activists such as Alexi Navalny.

Thanks to Putin’s mismanagement and neglect, Russia’s economy is in terrible shape, over-reliant on energy exports, lacking foreign investment and suffering chronic capital flight. That’s because businesses cannot rely on the rule of law to safeguard their dealings or prevent attempts at extortion, kickbacks and bribery.

Putin’s supposedly transformative national spending projects worth an eye-watering $390bn have largely failed to materialise. His promises of economic modernisation and raised living standards must be set against a consecutive five-year fall in real wages and cuts to state pensions.

At the same time, it is crystal clear Putin fears the sort of political liberalisation that might facilitate greater economic competitiveness and international investment. On the contrary, his latest proposals seek to further limit foreign influence.

The continuing drag on Russia’s development caused by western sanctions, imposed after the illegal annexation of Crimea, symbolises the broader, negative aspects of perpetual Putinism.

Putin not only refuses to get out of Crimea but actively fuels the separatist conflict in eastern Ukraine. And this conflict is but a smaller version of the murderous mayhem wrought by Russian forces in Syria since 2016, where killing and mass displacement continue in Idlib.

Putin is in cahoots with Turkey’s leader, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, and his campaign against pro-western Kurds in north-east Syria. More recently, he has inserted Russian mercenaries into the war in Libya, backing rebels against the UN-recognised government in Tripoli.

Russia’s baleful influence under Putin extends further, to covert influence-peddling in the Balkans and eastern Europe, attempts to divide the EU, cyber attacks on the Baltic republics, and disinformation campaigns to subvert democratic processes in Britain and the US.

Russian vetoes have reduced the UN security council to irrelevance on key issues. Putin’s poison meanwhile seeps through other western institutions, bamboozling Donald Trump, weakening the Nato alliance and the G7 (from which he has been banished), and undermining European democracy with his glib talk about “obsolete” western liberalism.

And speaking of poison, who doubts that Putin and his henchmen were behind the unpunished attempt to assassinate Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury and last year’s murder of a Chechen separatist in Berlin?

Vladimir Putin is a man of many faces: macho patriot, rightwing populist, cynical manipulator, and ruthless global warlord. All are inimical to the best interests of the Russian people. All are fundamentally hostile to western the principles of freedom and democracy.

The prospect of Putin prolonging and strengthening his nihilistic reign is a terrible one. Putin’s is the face of the enemy. Henceforth he must be recognised as such.

  1. The ‘Guardin’ lost credability a long time ago!
    In the words of edgar Cayce
    ‘Through Russia comes the hope of the world. Not in respect to what is sometimes termed Communism or Bolshevism – no! But freedom! That each man will live for everyman. The principle has been born there. It will take years for it to be crystalized,yet out of Russia comes again the hope of the world.’

  2. What a pathetic little man Simon Tisdall is attempting to compare Putin with Stalin. The comparison is tenuous to say the least,where are the gulags? The mass graves? The kidnappings? The torture of those guilty of thought crime and summary executions? I don’t know anything about life in Russia under Putin but I can spot a so called journalist who’s full of shit a mile off.

  3. Putin has improved the lot of the Russian far more than any other leader at present. Had Yeltsin or a clone continued as leader Russia would today balkanised into twenty or so fragments and the people pauperised. For that the West hates him and demonises him.

  4. Sorry it’s a global power base. Whoever Putin may be……and who knows if he has several body doubles as Saddam Hussein had (??has?? )…….you can guarantee Russia is a major player in the rollout of the NWO. It will unfold…..expect WW3…….and we might get more clues soon as to the final game plan. Ditto Xi and the China power base…….they are in on it for sure. It all gets closer. I’m sticking with New Testament prophecies. They are coming about in frightening accuracy, and so much more recognisable. Western vitriol against Russia, is a charade. Divide and rule always works. That Guardian journalist ( there’s a pile of newspaper, only fit for the trash can ) is writing complete tosh……it’s remotely possible that he is up to the grand plan, but he is paid to write fiction. If he dared write anything away from the narrative, he’s toast ( including his planned suicide! if necessary )

  5. Another Steaming Pile Of Sh!T served up on MI5/6’s favorite toilet-“Paper”

  6. Must admit I skim read this load of utter BS. ” He refuses to withdraw from Crimea ” and ” attempted to murder the Skripals ” just two examples of dark propaganda which is what the whole article amounts to. Do they really think most people believe this ? I suppose they must do otherwise this BS would never get published. The governance of Russia , good or bad , has absolutely nothing to do with us Westerners , as if we set any kind of an example anyway .

  7. A recent pol in the UK asked who was the worst politician today and who would be best to run the UK
    Tony Blair now known to all as Toerag-Tony was the worst
    and the best to run the UK was Putin, well could not be any worse that the zio-shower of shit we have had since W W 2
    BTW
    My freinds who knows the royals said they were all arguing among themselves
    and are so upset Prince Andrew got found out sleeping with underage girls.
    they said wait for a bombshell to drop. ?
    I wondered about this all week, then the news that Harry and Megan
    want to drop out.
    I just heard Prince Harry knows the Royals got Tony Blair to ask Rothschild
    for Mossad to kill his mum Diana.
    The Royals are sick with worry Harry will speak out.
    It is expected that he will give a statement on this very soon
    No wonder the royals are shitting themselves

  8. Putin continues to confound Western leaders. Whatever means they use to try to smear him only raises his reputation and profile on the world stage. Boris Johnson’s recent announcement that he has rebuked Putin over the Skripal “assassination” attack is a another example of serial lies coming from this globalist puppet. The British Deep State is the main driver of world events, even more so than that of the US. The globalists are on the run, and their desperation to avoid the consequences of their nefarious activities is resulting in risky retaliation which does even more to expose them. The veil is being lifted, and one of the first casualties to face the wrath of the public will be the corporate presstitutes who have shamed their profession for far too long.

  9. If a person were to read only one article about Putin in their whole life perhaps they would believe this garbage. If a person listens to what Putin says and watches what he does they would soon realize that he is the preeminent statesman in the world today. He is actually the only hope we have to avert a cataclysmic world war. One other thing – the people of Russia love him!!

  10. God bless Putin and Russia for saving Syria from the terrorists created by the ZUS and Israel and ZBritain, these terrorists are AL CIADA aka ISIS aka ISIL aka Daesh and all offshoots there of, and who is the worst terrorist the terrorists or the ones who created them.

  11. Questions on Putin – Ray Novosel observes:
    In July 2016, Russian president Vladimir Putin approved a package of laws that ushered in tighter restrictions on largely Christian missionary activity and evangelism despite prayers and protests from religious leaders and human rights advocates,. The amendments, included laws against sharing faith in homes, online, or anywhere but recognized church buildings.

    Putin has compared Lenin to that of a saint and declared that Soviet communist ideas “came from the Bible” clearly proving that Putin’s thinking is and remains a product of Jewish Bolshevism. This would also strongly suggest that his avowed Christian faith is fake – just like the Spanish Marranos; Jews who pretended conversion to Christianity for convenience, but who continued to practice Rabbinical Judaism in secret. In fact one of the greatest minds of our time – Bobby Fischer – was quoted as saying: “Soviet Communism is basically a mask for Bolshevism which is a mask for Judaism.”

    Because he openly pretends to be a Christian, he is thus seen by the Russian Orthodox Church as almost messianic, not because of his merits for Christ, but for making Russia a great power again – clearly his doing. And Putin sees himself the same way. As a Royal Arch Freemason, he will consider himself to be a God and honour the Masonic God, Lucifer.

    Recently an anonymous former MI6 pupil writes: “I was recruited into British Intelligence in 1979. I was then used and abused as ‘zygote’ from that point on. I was also programmed by a Masonic cult (Royal Arch Freemasonry) to anoint the anti-Christ and then Messiah. They chose their ‘anti-Christ’ in 1979. A young Russian officer from the KGB called Mr Vladimir Putin.”

    The Washington Post 20 Jan. 2016 reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed to members of the European Jewish Congress, that Jews facing a rising tide of anti-Semitism and bigotry farther west should move to Russia, where he said they would be better accepted. Readers of the Jerusalem Post have chosen Putin as their person of the year.

    In July 2014, Vladimir Putin met with a delegation of rabbis, led by Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, former Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau, Chief Rabbi of Russia Berel Lazar (Chabad Lubawitsh, and rabbis of the Rabbinical Center of Europe (RCE). Rabbi Yosef began by saying “according to the Jewish tradition, your leadership is decided by the kingdom of G-d, King (God) of the world, and therefore we bless you: Blessed is the One who gave of His glory to flesh and blood.”

    So what does this term “Blessed is the One who gave of His glory to flesh and blood” actually mean?

    The Australian Journal of Jewish Studies. Jewish Prayers for the Government: The Talmud (TB Berakhot 58a) reported that in ancient times the people were agog to see the king, Jew or gentile. A benediction was required by halakhah (Jewish law): On seeing a Jewish king and his court, it was Barukh.shenathan mik’vodo levasar vedam, “Blessed be He … who gave some of His glory to flesh and blood”

    Putin was ‘anointed’ in 1993 and rapidly rose up the ranks of the KGB to become spy chief. Later on to become acting Prime Minister of Russia and finally the President. This would NEVER have happened in a totally Jewish controlled Russia if he were truly Christian
    In Nov. 2013: An historic agreement was signed by European and American rabbinical councils, in which world rabbinic leaders declared that the Chief Rabbinate of Israel leads the Jewish world. Deputy Minister of Religious Services Rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan (Jewish Home/Bayit Yehudi) also signed the treaty. These rabbis who met Putin in 2014 represent the very top of the Pharisaic NWO pyramid Jewry: Rabbis Yosef and Lau represent the Rabbinate of Israel.

    Putin damaged himself with people who have a moral conscience when he recently met with the criminal-in-chief of the Israeli state and treated Netanyahu as if he were not a war criminal who belonged swinging from a scaffold, but a world leader worthy of Russia’s recognition. This deliberate act of folly deflated Putin’s reputation as a leader who stood for moral outcomes and not merely for self-interested, negotiated outcomes.

    Therefore the High Priests of Judaism have anointed Vladimir Putin to be King of the Jews, thereby declaring 1) Putin is Jewish – not just by heart, as he has always shown, but also genetically 2) he is either to rule the “pious Talmudic” Rothschilds, the Jewish Supreme Court of whom in Jerusalem is the supreme Temple of Masonry – or rather take his orders from them. Putin today lives like a king in every way.
    The clear fact is that the God of Judaism is Lucifer, including Freemasonry in general – please make no mistake about this. It clearly appears that Putin has been appointed King of the Jewish NWO world on behalf of the governing world Pharisee rabbis – the Kehillah.

  12. Vladimir Putin who stopped Greater Israel in it’s expansion north in Syria is hated by the Wrathchild Reptilian Demons. They hate him with a passion. Pompeo now claims they are thinking about droning Putin like Soleimani.

    If a mainstream “reporter” does a hit piece on Putin it means they are mightily upset about him doing a good job to thwart their Satanic takeover plans. Simple Simon Tisdale is serving evil and he ain’t fooling anyone except hardcore Zionist hacks

    Putin is such a threat he’s vilified like Hitler, why he’s the new Hitler, he’s a nationalist, he’s not serving Satan like the slimeball Tisdale.

  13. Brexit is happening for two reasons. Cameron could not get a veto on City regulation so we had a rigged referendum. Russia/EU is a marriage made in heaven. Since the EUs Eastern expansion, the political and economic centers of power have moved Eastwards. Given the growing economic and political ties with Russia, MI6 (Chatham House) has decided that bankrupt Britain will end up as a small island off the EU mainland. Compounding this is China, who is building Silk Road 2, linking all of Asia and Europe. This is a land-based project, The US and UK are principally naval powers. The corrupt UK elite has literally decided to camp under the US wings and we are all going to suffer for the privilege.

    The reason why Boris (Amerikan) can say: “Screw business”, is that real business doesn’t matter in a hot war.

  14. The big question remains: Who are these characters that demonize Putin? They are those, that found refuge in the West and Israel after the fall of the former communist USSR. They plundered the RF when leaving and have been embraced by their sympathizers in the West, quickly moving into every area of public domain. They are the real enemy of the West and the beneficiaries of War and conflicts.

  15. THe REAL Axis Of Evil —> ZOGUSSA / ISISrael / ENGZOG

  16. Putin is part of the NWO take-over plans: he is just the ZOG East version of it as ZOG West (Anglo-American Israeli Alliance) slowly fades into the history books!
    ZOG East is the Russia / China / Iran, German-led reformed EU Eurasian Landmass LAND power. OR ZOG West (UNIPOLAR) vs. ZOG East (Multipolar), Jerusalem Israel still plays a role due to Rothschild creating, supporting and backing Israel!
    PS: Putin is the next NEW Lifetime CZAR of Russia to lead ZOG East with Xi Jinping.
    Article is just BS!

  17. Ray N’s first paragraph in above comments, absolutely says it all. The last thing Satan’s cohorts want is evangelism………….State Orthodoxy is fine!! I’m wondering how the arranged WW3 will start? They have a deadline with Agenda 2030, so can’t leave it too long. The global economic collapse is all in place, so that’s sorted. Geoengineering has already caused mass devastation of crops around the world this year, so there’s the hunger games all ready to roll. Basically any time soon. Don’t worry folks……just read Mat 24 v 21-22. If Jesus could predict that 2000 years ago, when technology was primitive, and warfare was conducted with swords and spears, then I am sorry, it is one of the biggest proofs that he was who he said he was. He’s the seventh cavalry folks, but he did say there would be tribulation and persecution (of Christians ) beforehand…….not prosperity as the likes of Joyce Meyer spout. Get saved if you’re not already. Urgent!!!
