On Thursday October 27th, Russian President Vladimir Putin addressed the annual Valdai Discussion Club. With an RT headline reading “’No one can sit out the coming storm’: Putin’s milestone Valdai speech,” the article lists the important takeaways followed by the key Putin quotes in italics. This presentation offers my commentary after each of the seven takeaway points. During these harrowing moments when nuclear Armageddon appears closer today than any previous time in history, including the October Missile Crisis of 1962. Then when Premier Nikita Khrushchev was confronted by American President John F. Kennedy, given the ultimatum to either remove the Soviet installed nuclear missiles in Cuba or face nuclear confrontation, the Soviet leader opted to send the missiles back to the USSR. From that historic development evolved the “mutual assured destruction” that became the effective mutual deterrent that shaped subsequent restrained behavior on both sides during the Cold War. But that ethical principle that applied throughout the remainder of the Cold War clearly no longer applies today.
Putin has stated in recent weeks that to protect his nation, he would be willing to use his nuclear weapons. This has led to unprecedented warmongering rhetoric on both sides and over this last month near daily allegations made by both Ukraine and Russia of a tactical nuclear dirty bomb used as a false flag. Several of my previous articles have shown that the threat is very real that Ukraine or the West may release a nuke to blame Russia as instigation for World War III between NATO/US and Russia.
The Thursday speech by Putin was as much addressed to his fellow Russians as the people of the West. The RT takeaways and my responses follow.
1. The West stokes conflict to preserve hegemony: Ruling the world is what the so-called West has staked in this game, which is certainly dangerous, bloody and – I would say – dirty. It denies the sovereignty of countries and peoples, their identity and uniqueness, and disregards any interests of other states.
The Western Empire of Lies led by the United States but controlled by the Khazarian mafia has enjoyed sole superpower status for over three decades and like a drug can’t give it up. The 1991 breakup of the Soviet Union marked the beginning of this brief unipolar hegemonic reign of exclusive US power and self-entitled exceptionalism. Ever since the US foreign policy toward Russia has been one of constant provocation, obsessively attempting in vain to weaken Moscow by any and all means necessary. And for over two decades now the US and Western media have demonized Russia’s leader, all the while attempting to win over nations along Russia’s border in order to recruit them to join NATO and install US nuclear missiles aimed at Russia. In more recent years, the US agenda has grown overtly aggressive to outright regime change, removing Putin from power to select a weak puppet to control and thereby steal Russia’s vast natural resources. But now with national economies in both North America and Europe cratering, those days of US unipolar hegemony are over. Wake up and join the rest of the now multipolar world… or be the pariah that all other nations avoid while quietly celebrating the fall of the Western civilization because all it meant to the rest of the world is centuries of imperialistic racism, indentured servitude and genocidal enslavement. Humble yourself and move on as the dethroned power that hobbles along just to stay alive now. Either respect all nations’ sovereignty and right to national security or perish.
2. Rules for thee but not for me: As soon as something becomes profitable for themselves, they change the rules immediately, on the go, in the course of the game.
While the US is constantly denigrating and punishing any and all other nations attempting to remain independent of America’s hegemonic sphere of influence, as the global bully the US habitually threatens military invasion, regime change, engaging in overt coercion, customarily resorting to piling on economic sanctions that ultimately, inhumanely hurt the targeted nations’ poorest populations. While Washington DC is the globalist enforcer arbitrarily accusing targeted nations for various violations of international rule of law, or worse yet, arbitrarily changes the rule of law to suit its own exploitive advantage evoking its privileged exceptionalism that grants itself impunity to violate any law it chooses. It rigs the game so the controllers of the DC puppets always stand to profit the most while browbeating and bullying other nations into submission. A recent example is committing a terrorist act of war and betrayal against its supposed Western ally Germany, blowing up the Nord Stream pipelines, depriving heat for the winter and energy to run its industry, forcing widespread bankruptcy and deadly famine. Yet the vassal that is the European Union’s kingpin is driven to its subservient knees, too afraid to even confront the backstabbing American aggressor. The domino effect is the death of Europe with the same fate soon befalling North America as well. Puppet politicians do not act in the interest of their citizens but only the dirty bidding of their criminal masters bent on destroying the West for depopulation purposes.
3. Cancel culture: Liberal democracy has transformed into something unrecognizable, declaring any alternative viewpoint as propaganda or a threat. The so-called “cancel culture” destroys anything that is alive and creative, preventing any freedom of thought in culture, economics or politics alike.
Putin is taking aim at the liberal left that has hijacked Western culture into a highly destructive, overreaching, fascist authoritarian tyranny that rejects any and all viewpoints different from the intolerant dogma. It wilfully violates constitutional human rights and liberties, particularly First Amendment rights of both free expression as well as freedom of the press. The oppression engaging in rampant censorship today has turned the US constitutional republic into a dictatorship where those bold enough to voice an alternative viewpoint is deemed a criminal and enemy of the state, no different from the Soviet gulag enslavement. PayPal just reinstated its earlier proposed policy of fining dissent deemed misinformation $2,500. And the self-appointed Tech gatekeepers construe anything that deviates from their dogmatic false narrative as misinformation. Increasingly, Google, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube among all the Big Tech giants notoriously utilize logarithms to systematically deplatform dissent and, to this day, are criminally aiding and abetting genocidal murder by censoring lifesaving information and truth that would otherwise prevent many from taking dangerous poisons deceitfully sold as “safe and effective,” lifesaving vaccines intended to deliberately injure and murder innocent victims. Cancel culture is just another Khazarian mafia crime against humanity and children. Though Putin accurately criticizes “cancel culture” for “preventing freedom of thought in culture, economics and politics,” his own strict domestic policy severely punishing dissenters strikes me as hypocritical.
4. Russia does not seek domination: Russia is an “independent, original civilization” and “has never considered itself an enemy of the West. Since antiquity, it has had ties with the West of traditional Christian and Muslim values, freedom, patriotism, and a rich culture. There is another West, however – “an aggressive, cosmopolitan, neocolonialist, acting as a tool of neoliberal elites whose dictates Russia will never accept. Russia simply defends its right to exist and develop freely. At the same time, we ourselves are not seeking to become some kind of new hegemon.
This Putin criticism hits the mark as he has repeatedly made offers, overtures and gestures intending to normalize and improve Russo-American relations but consistently his efforts have been rebuffed and rejected. The latest case in point is as recently as last May Putin was ready to negotiate a peace settlement with Ukraine as long as Ukraine stopped its ethnic purge of the residents living in the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics and accepted Crimea as Russian territory in addition to Ukraine’s neutrality to Russia. Thousands and thousands of lives, especially on the Ukraine side, would have been saved. But the puppet Zelensky taking orders from US and NATO that in turn follow orders of their bloodline masters absolutely refused. US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin III truthfully said that the objective was to stretch the war out to weaken Russia and neocon policymaker John Bolton truthfully stated the ultimate objective is to remove Putin from power. These scumbags with blood on their hands would rather see widespread carnage and mass human suffering using the people of Ukraine as cannon fodder than bring peace to the region by respecting Russia’s right to national security. The Russian people have sacrificed so much historically and after the Cold War ended in 1991, the Kremlin leadership has always been open to peaceful relations with the West but the overlords that control the Western governments, especially in the United States and United Kingdom have consistently chosen provocation and unwarranted aggression against Russia. Meanwhile, Russia never went to war killing millions of Muslims and Putin has embraced the Christian Orthodox Church, respecting religious freedom. The West, which is historically rooted in Christianity, in recent decades with its leftist wokism bent, has seemingly embraced decadence and hedonism. Moreover, during the post-Soviet era, Russia has never demonstrated an ambition to become a hegemon or resurrect the imperialistic Soviet Empire, yet the US that for three decades was the sole global superpower, committed to nonstop wars of imperialistic brutal aggression as the elites including the Zionists’ bludgeoning killing machine for the Greater Israel Project. Deceptively selling its bloodthirsty aggression and brutality as promoting democracy around the world is both an insult to our intelligence and an abomination of the worst sort. Putin’s assessment is both fair and true.
5. Western hegemony is ending: We are standing at a historic milestone, ahead of what is probably the most dangerous, unpredictable and at the same time important decade since the end of World War II. The West is not able to single-handedly manage humanity, but is desperately trying to do it, and most of the peoples of the world no longer want to put up with it. No one can sit out the coming storm, which has acquired a global character. Humanity has 2 choices, either to continue to accumulate a burden of problems that will inevitably crush us all, or to try together to find solutions, albeit imperfect, but working, capable of making our world safer and more stable.
This point is also extremely valid. A historic milestone has clearly been reached where America’s unipolar hegemony is over, kaput, history, a bygone era, and the entire world knows this except for the prima donna puppets pretending they are still the righteous, freedom loving rulers of this world when it’s the biggest lie of them all. We are now living in a multipolar world led by Russia and China. With the economic BRICS alliance and Shanghai Cooperation Organization both being flooded currently with applications for new membership by Turkey (ditching NATO), Saudi Arabia, Iran, Argentina, Egypt. Nations are lining up in droves ditching the US dollar/petrodollar as international reserve currency with new currencies developing backed by the gold standard, the West is now in its death throes while the rest of the world is leaving it behind looking for global leadership from Russia and China.
Bottom line, tragically in the race to drastically reduce the human population, the elite has chosen the three wealthiest continents to throw under the bus and brutally destroy, and their treasonous puppets are more than obliging their masters in demolishing the West as soon as possible. Drawn for elite think tanks and CIA data, the military industrial complex trade website deagel.com predicted enormous population loss by 2025 in all the wealthiest nations on earth (80% in US), of course the most from all the Western countries. The skyrocketing, unaffordable prices to survive amidst record inflation, history’s biggest economic collapse, acute shortages of all kinds, especially food staples, fertilizer, all fuel sources including diesel the US is about to run out of, causing massive worldwide deindustrialization, famine, starvation and large populations freezing to death in northern climates on top of the non-vaccine holocaust that the elites have been trying to sell us on as their “safe and effective” Great Reset. The West is being completely and deliberately destroyed, which is another reason why the elites are pushing humanity off the Armageddon cliff with everything meticulously engineered and planned by the controllers conveniently blaming Russia for all of the above. Putin and Russia are not trying to destroy the world but the Luciferian bloodline controllers that are causing all this unprecedented horror sure are. Though Putin is soft-peddling the dire genocidal conditions currently facing humanity, he alludes to either the hard way going down, which is the globalist arranged fast track to hell on earth, or the only way out from so much doom and gloom through choosing a far more rational path of mutual cooperation and collective problem solving.
6. What multipolar world should look like: Above all, we believe that the new world order should be based on law and justice, be free, authentic and fair. The future world order is being formed before our eyes. And in this world order, we must listen to everyone, take into account every point of view, every nation, society, culture, every system of worldviews, ideas and religious beliefs, without imposing a single truth on anyone, and only on this basis, understanding our responsibility for the fate of our peoples and the planet, to build a symphony of human civilization.
Who could argue against a “multipolar world” that values “law and justice,” with the attributes of “be[ing] free, authentic and fair,” likewise live in a “kumbaya” world where everyone has a voice and each nation, culture and religion is respected, and no one truth or single power dictates to the rest. It all sounds idealistic and utopian, never in history achieved on this planet. And Putin’s frequent use of the term “new world order” and previous positive references in benevolent deference he apparently holds toward the UN’s role both give me serious pause that he’s a globalist in disguise. With a lousy track record for human rights and Putin’s controlled opposition roots groomed by the Rothschild-Kissinger-Schwab Davos crowd, his “kumbaya” world where words come cheap espousing all the hifalutin values that have yet to realistically ever be practiced on this fallible earth throughout history makes me very suspicious that he may not be who he says he is.
That said, Putin is obviously an extremely intelligent individual who is capable of expressing sorely needed truth in our truth-starved world, especially rare among today’s world leaders, and his capacity to show remarkable constraint while for decades aggressively provoked and demonized by the West, as seemingly a genuine nationalist who appears to care about his people, his leadership stands head and shoulders above the rest. And his anti-globalist, anti-wokism and anti-pedophilia positions repeatedly articulated over the years, also make him a rare standout among world leaders. And as much as I want him to turn out to be a good guy, I lean toward him being a controlled opposition despot merely playing his role on the geopolitics chessboard stage. Time will tell who he really is.
7. Thoughts on the West’s wokism and gender theory: If Western elites believe that they can incorporate into the minds of their people, their societies things that I personally find somewhat weird, and which are apparently in fashion, like dozens of genders, and gay pride parades, so be it. Let them do whatever they want. Their difference from the so-called neoliberal values is that in every case they are unique, because they stem from the traditions of a particular society, its culture, and historic experience. That is why you cannot force them on somebody. You should simply respect them, cherish what each nation picked for itself over centuries.
Again Putin articulately applies tact and diplomacy here stating how all the wokism bullshit and transgender perversions and decadence in the West that constantly attempts to normalize pedophilia in the mass media is not for him or his culture, but he attempts to accept that each culture and nation is free to accept whatever its historic traditions and values it embraces as their own. He expresses more tolerance than me, maybe because it’s not bringing down his culture like it is the American culture. Having the degenerates cramming their sick agenda down our throats as the cluelessly brainwashed left that engaged in criminal election fraud to illegitimately claim their power, knowing that Biden’s treasonous policies are fast destroying America, this clown show is hard to even stomach.
