Regardless of what anyone says about him, Russian President Vladimir Putin (pictured) has been putting on a clinic when it comes to leading a nation.
For the latter part of this current decade, Russia’s 67-year-old premier accomplished feats no other global superpower can lay claim to. Toward the last portion of former U.S. President Barack Obama’s second term in office, Putin’s concoction of a major purge was nearing completion.
However, this purge was not comparable to Soviet premier Joseph Stalin’s Great Purge of the 1930s. Stalin’s campaign of wanton brutality involved the elimination of anyone in Russia’s former U.S.S.R. political circle who he believed threatened his power. The high price of Stalinist terror was always paid in lakes of blood.
Putin’s purge successfully toppled a much more shadowy adversary that is far more formidable than Stalin or the former Soviet Union ever was. Nearly every globalized nation’s central bank is owned and controlled by the Rothschilds, a family of international money changers that began their plans of financial oligarchy in the 1700s.
“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who writes its laws,” Mayer Amschel Rothschild is famously quoted as saying.
Mayer Amschel (1744-1812) was the original Rothschild patriarch who began this family’s astronomical stranglehold on absolute monetary power. Even the so-called U.S. founding fathers saw the threat posed by these world banking cartels who had the power to bankrupt kings, queens, destroy national economies, and fund wars.
The U.S. Federal Reserve Bank is a privately-held institution that is also under total control of the so-called “banksters.” But a few years ago, Lord Jacob Rothschild, the family’s current patriarch, was banned from Russia by Putin. It was part of the former KGB spy’s plan to put Moscow’s central bank back in Russian hands completely.
“They said we could not do it, they said we would be destroyed. Our future generations will be born without Rothschild chains around their wrists and ankles,” Putin was quoted as saying after masterfully ridding Russia of Rothschild control.
When it comes to the current rashes of proxy wars going on in the Middle East, Russia, not the U.S., appears to be the superpower with the goods on everybody. Former U.S. President Obama wanted Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and he wanted him bad. Obama showed this by authorizing a heavy U.S. military build-up in Syria.
Last month, under current U.S. President Donald Trump’s order, thousands of U.S. troops were withdrawn from northern Syria. The white noise about Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election did nothing to prevent the election of a U.S. president who has done virtually everything Putin has wanted done concerning foreign policy.
CNN reported also reported last month that Putin was hobnobbing with Saudi Arabia’s King Salman during the Russian leader’s recent visit to the Persian Gulf Kingdom. Putin’s visit threw salt on America’s diplomatic wounds in the Middle East. Putin figuratively told Washington D.C. some menacing things in his Saudi visit.
Iran and Saudi Arabia are archenemies. However, Putin is using the oil factor to gain leverage from both sides. America only plays this game on the Saudi side as the Iranian side gestures shooting a figurative pistol at the U.S. Talks about Iran’s nuclear program have faltered and U.S.-backed anti-Assad militias have died from Iranian-made weapons.
Now victorious, Putin continues to revel in the might of his bankster-free glory. He is also using his Saudi and Iranian-fueled oil monopoly to “de-dollarize” Russia and the whole world. Now Moscow has the cash to afford some new toys as the 21st century’s international arms race continues.
According to an article published last week by Britain’s Daily Express Newspaper, Russia announced that it is in possession of a new line of hypersonic weaponry that “no one else owns.” The newspaper claimed that the Kremlin’s favorite calculated Cold Warrior said that these weapons will be test launched in the very near future.
“[These sophisticated new hypersonic were made] to reliably protect Russia and our fellow citizens from external and domestic threats, to clearly anticipate potential risks and challenges and to improve their performance gradually and consistently,” Putin said.
One of these new weapons is a powerful drone that can blast underneath the ocean. As Russia prepares to flex its refined military muscle, the U.S. and NATO are figuratively running scared. NATO has also been divided and Financial Times reporter Sam Jones blamed that division on Putin’s threats and relentless intimidation.
“Russia has reacted angrily to [NATO’s] proposals [about renewing Russian dialogue], vowing ‘retaliatory measures’ and triggering a bout of soul-searching within NATO over the need to try and de-escalate an increasingly worrisome, and bellicose, war of words,” Jones wrote in a May 2016 article published in the Times.
Chess is a strategic board game and has always been a popular Russian pastime. Winning a chess game involves taking advantage of your opponent’s mistakes while simultaneously avoiding theirs. As either Russia’s President or Prime Minister, Putin has had the luxury of observing the mistakes of three U.S. presidents.
“It is wrong to make anyone into an enemy; it is wrong to scare the people of one’s own country with that enemy and try to rally some allies on that basis,” Putin has famously quoted.
Russia’s cultivation of the connections it has to nations, groups, and men that the 43rd, 44th, and 45th presidents of the U.S. made into adversaries has helped Putin perfectly exemplify an age old adage.
“Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.”
