Vladimir Putin and the Hamburg Testament

19.07.2017 Author: Phil Butler
Column: Politics

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:

    O Presidente dos EUA, Donald Trump, criticou duramente na quarta-feira, a divulgação da comunicação mediática dos EUA, sobre o suposto segundo encontro com o Presidente russo, Vladimir Putin, à margem da Cimeira do G20, em Hamburgo.
    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - Ao início do dia, o jornal Hill informou que os dois líderes tiveram uma segunda reunião não divulgada, à margem da Cimeira do G20. A reunião ocorreu durante o jantar dos Chefes de Estado, no G20 e durou cerca de uma hora, informou Ian Bremmer, presidente da Consultoria Internacional do Grupo Eurasia Group, disse o jornal.
     “A história de Notícias Falsas de um presumível jantar secreto com Putin é “doentia”. Todos os líderes do G 20 e respectivas esposas, foram convidados pela chanceler da Alemanha. A imprensa sabia! ... As Notícias Falsas estão a tornar-se cada vez mais fraudulentas! Mesmo um jantar organizado para  os 20 líderes principais, na Alemanha, é aproveitado para parecer algo tenebroso!” Trump postou no Twitter.
    No mesmo dia, um funcionário da Casa Branca refutou essas pretensões, dizendo que Trump e Putin não tiveram uma segunda reunião em Hamburgo, mas tiveram uma breve conversa no final de um jantar formal. O oficial designou a insinuação de ocultação da segunda reunião pela Casa Branca, como "falsa, maliciosa e absurda".
    Desde que Trump foi empossado, a comunicação mediática norte-americana acusou o Gabinete do Presidente dos EUA, de ter ligações com o Kremlin. O Presidente dos EUA refutou estas alegações e rotulou a imprensa envolvida nessas especulações como “notícias falsas/fake news”.

      US President Donald Trump harshly criticized on Wednesday the US media coverage of his alleged second meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg.
      WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, the Hill newspaper reported that the two leaders had a second, undisclosed meeting on the sidelines of the G20 Summit. The meeting took place during the G20 heads of state dinner and lasted for roughly an hour, Ian Bremmer, the president of the international consulting firm Eurasia Group, told the newspaper.
      "Fake News story of secret dinner with Putin is "sick." All G 20 leaders, and spouses, were invited by the Chancellor of Germany. Press knew!… The Fake News is becoming more and more dishonest! Even a dinner arranged for top 20 leaders in Germany is made to look sinister!" Trump posted on Twitter.
      The same day, a White House official refuted the claims, saying that Trump and Putin did not have a second meeting in Hamburg, but had a brief conversation at the end of a formal dinner. The official called the insinuation that the White House hiding the second meeting "false, malicious and absurd."
      Since Trump assumed the office, US media have accused the US president's team of having ties to the Kremlin. The US president has refuted these allegations and labeled the media involved in these speculations as "fake news."

      Manlio Dinucci -- O Eixo da Guerra para o Sul em Nápoles

       O Eixo da Guerra para o Sul, em Nápoles
      Anunciado pela Ministra Pinotti, no encontro com o Chefe do Pentágono, em 11 de Julho, em Washington.

      Manlio Dinucci




       
      Quem disse que escasseiam os investimentos no Sul? A Ministra Pinotti anunciou a realização de uma grande obra, em Nápoles: O Eixo para o Sul. Após o encontro com o Chefe do Pentágono, James Mattis, na terça-feira em Washington, declarou: "Estamos satisfeitos por ter sido concedido o nosso pedido de transformar o Comando NATO, em Nápoles, no Eixo para o Sul ".
      O comando que ela menciona, é o JFC de Nápoles, o Comando da Força conjunta aliada, com o quartel general, em Lago Patria (Nápoles), sob as ordens da Almirante americana, Michelle Howard que, além de ser a Chefe do Comando NATO, é a Comandante das Forças Navais dos EUA para a Europa e para África.
      Os três comandos de Nápoles, sempre às ordens de uma almirante norte-americana designada pelo Pentágono, tem uma “área de responsabilidade” que engloba a Europa, toda a Rússia, o Mediterrâneo e a África. A guerra contra a Líbia em 2011, com a contribuição decisiva italiana, foi dirigida pela NATO através do JFC de Nápoles. As operações militares dentro da Síria também foram conduzidas a partir de Nápoles. 
      Esta é a causa principal do êxodo dramático dos refugiados e da "crise de imigrantes, que a Itália está a viver quase isoladamente", como definiu em Washington a Ministra Pinotti, como se fosse uma maldição caída do céu.
      O novo Eixo para o Sul, também incluído na cadeia de comando do Pentágono, constituirá a base operacional para o lançamento de forças terrestres, aéreas e marítimas. As forças e as armas necessárias serão fornecidas a toda a rede de bases dos EUA/NATO, na Itália, em particular, em Aviano, Campo Darby, Gaeta, Sigonella, Augusta, enquanto a Estação MUOS, em Niscemi e outras, irão lidar com as comunicações. Para estas operações, que a NATO chama de “projecção de estabilidade para além das nossas fronteiras”, está disponível a Força de resposta da NATO, acrescida de 40.000 homens e, em particular pela sua Força de elite, que pode ser lançada em 48 horas, “em todos os lugares e a qualquer momento.”
      James Mattis agradeceu à Itália, quer a sua "hospitalidade para com os 30.000 militares americanos, funcionários civis e familiares", quer a sua cooperação importante de fazer face às “ameaças de segurança no Mediterrâneo, no Médio Oriente e em África.”  A Ministra Pinotti propôs, entre outras coisas, a possibilidade de prolongar as tarefas dos 1.400 soldados italianos no Iraque, que ainda se encontram  em funções de treino, em Raqqa.
      Sobre o Eixo para Sul, a Ministra anunciou com satisfação, que na “última reunião ministerial da NATO, já se identificaram os recursos para a sua realização.” No entanto, não quantificou os mesmos. Todavia, podem estimar-se em biliões de euros, com uma parcela significativa a cargo da Itália. Só a construção do novo quartel general do JFC, em Nápoles, inaugurado em 2012, em Lago Patria (85.000 metros quadrados cobertos expansíveis, no qual trabalham 2.500 militares), custou cerca de 200 milhões de euros. Tudo feito com dinheiro público, ao qual se irá adicionar, as despesas sempre a crescer da NATO para a 'Defesa' (a  parcela italiana está estimada em cerca de 70 milhões de euros por dia).
      No JFC de Nápoles, anuncia Pinotti, está a instalar-se pessoal qualificado, pois que, ao tornar-se o Eixo para o Sul, o comando deve assumir, igualmente, ter capacidade para "reconstruir Estados falidos". Trabalho realizado em ciclo contínuo: depois de ter transformado a Líbia num “Estado falido”, demolindo-o com a guerra, agora o mesmo comando vai “reconstruí-lo”.

      THIERRY MEYSSAN -- Des milliards de dollars d’armes contre la Syrie


      UN RÉSEAU DE TRAFIC D’ARMES IMPLIQUANT AU MOINS 17 ÉTATS

      Des milliards de dollars d’armes contre la Syrie

      Depuis sept ans, plusieurs milliards de dollars d’armement sont parvenus illégalement en Syrie ; un fait qui suffit à démentir la narration selon laquelle cette guerre serait une révolution démocratique. De nombreux documents attestent que ce trafic a été organisé par le général David Petraeus, d’abord à titre public depuis la CIA dont il était directeur, puis à titre privé depuis la société financière KKR avec l’aide de hauts fonctionnaires états-uniens et internationaux, dont le secrétaire général adjoint de l’Onu, Jeffrey Feltman. Ainsi, le conflit, qui était initialement une opération impérialiste des États-Unis et du Royaume-Uni, s’est transformé en une opération capitaliste privée, tandis qu’à Washington l’autorité de la Maison-Blanche était contestée par l’État profond. De nouveaux éléments mettent en lumière le rôle secret de l’Azerbaïdjan dans l’évolution de cette guerre.

       | DAMAS (SYRIE)  

       Comment les jihadistes d’Alep étaient-ils approvisionnés en armes bulgares ?
      Lors de la libération d’Alep et de la prise de l’état-major saoudien qui s’y trouvait, la journaliste bulgare Dilyana Gaytandzhieva constata la présence d’armes de son pays dans neufs entrepôts abandonnés par les jihadistes. Elle nota soigneusement les indications portées sur les caisses et, de retour dans son pays, enquêta sur la manière dont elles étaient arrivées en Syrie.
      Depuis 2009 —à la brève exception de la période allant de mars 2013 à novembre 2014—, la Bulgarie est gouvernée par Boïko Borissov, un personnage haut en couleur, issu de l’une des principales organisations criminelles européennes, la SIC. Rappelons que la Bulgarie est à la fois membre de l’Otan et de l’Union européenne et qu’aucune de ces deux organisations n’a émis la moindre critique contre l’arrivée au pouvoir d’un chef mafieux identifié depuis longtemps par les services internationaux de police.
      C’est donc clairement en mettant leur vie en jeu que Dilyana Gaytandzhieva a remonté la filière et que la rédaction du quotidien de Sofia, Trud, a publié son dossier [1]. Si la Bulgarie a été l’un des principaux exportateurs d’armes vers la Syrie, elle a bénéficié de l’aide de l’Azerbaïdjan.

      Le gigantesque trafic d’armes de la CIA contre l’Afghanistan, l’Irak, la Libye, la Syrie et l’Inde

      Depuis le début des printemps arabes, un gigantesque trafic d’armes a été organisé par la CIA et le Pentagone en violation de nombreuses résolutions du Conseil de sécurité de l’Onu. Toutes les opérations que nous allons récapituler ici sont illégales en droit international, y compris celles organisées publiquement par le Pentagone.
      En matière de trafic d’armes, même lorsque des individus ou des sociétés privées servent de paravent, il est impossible d’exporter des matériels sensibles sans l’assentiment des gouvernements concernés.
      Toutes les armes dont nous allons parler, sauf les systèmes de renseignement électronique, sont de type soviétique. Par définition, même si l’on prétend que des armées dotées d’armes de type Otan sont les destinataires finales de ces livraisons, c’est impossible. Ces armées servent juste à couvrir le trafic.
      On savait déjà que la CIA avait fait appel à la SIC et à Boïko Borissov pour fabriquer en urgence du Captagon à destination des jihadistes en Libye, puis en Syrie. Depuis l’enquête de Maria Petkova publiée dans Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN), on savait que la CIA et le SOCOM (Special Operations Command du Pentagone) avaient acheté pour 500 millions de dollars d’armes à la Bulgarie, entre 2011 et 2014, pour les jihadistes. Puis que d’autres armes furent payées par l’Arabie saoudite et les Émirats arabes unis et transportées par Saudi Arabian Cargo et Etihad Cargo [2].

      THIERRY MEYSSAN -- Billions of dollars’ worth of arms against Syria

      Billions of dollars’ worth of arms against Syria

      Over the last seven years, several billion dollars’ worth of armament has been illegally introduced into Syria – a fact which in itself is enough to disprove the myth according to which this war is a democratic revolution. Numerous documents attest to the fact that the traffic was organised by General David Petraeus, first of all in public, via the CIA, of which he was the director, then privately, via the financial company KKR with the aid of certain senior civil servants. Thus the conflict, which was initially an imperialist operation by the United States and the United Kingdom, became a private capitalist operation, while in Washington, the authority of the White House was challenged by the deep state. New elements now show the secret rôle of Azerbaïdjan in the evolution of the war.
       | DAMASCUS (SYRIA)  
       
      How were the jihadists of Aleppo supplied with Bulgarian weapons?
      During the liberation of Aleppo and the capture of the Saudi military staff who were on site, Bulgarian journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva noted the presence of weapons from her country in nine warehouses abandoned by the jihadists. She carefully noted the information on the boxes, and once she returned home, she investigated the way in which the weapons had been delivered to Syria.
      Since 2009 – with the short exception of the period between March 2013 to November 2014 - Bulgaria has been governed by Boïko Borissov, a highly colourful character from one of Europe’s main criminal organisations, the SIC. Let’s remember that Bulgaria is a member of both NATO and the European Union, and that neither of these two organisations offered the slightest criticism concerning the accession to power of a Mafia lord who had been identified as such a long time previously by the international police services.
      It is therefore clearly at the risk of their lives that Dilyana Gaytandzhieva uncovered the organisation, and the editors of the Sofia daily, Trud, published her article [1]. While Bulgaria was one of the main arms exporters to Syria, it received help from Azerbaïdjan.

      The gigantic CIA arms traffic against Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and India

      Since the beginning of the Arab Springs, a gigantic arms traffic was organised by the CIA and the Pentagon in violation of a number of resolutions by the UNO Security Council. All the operations that we will be mentioning here are illegal under international law, including those organised publicly by the Pentagon.
      As far as arms traffic is concerned, even when individuals or private companies are used as shields, it is impossible to export sensitive equipment without the authorisation of the governments concerned.

      US Mainstream Media Totally Misses Clinton’s Collusion Link to Trump-Russia-Gate

        The mainstream media has focused on Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya’s conversation with Donald Trump, Jr. to cover up, or at least distract from, another Clintonian pay-to-play scheme, this time between the Clintons and Russia.

        In 2010, Bill Clinton went to Moscow for a question and answer session with Renaissance Capital. Renaissance is owned by Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov. For his efforts, Clinton was compensated a cool $500,000 and received a personal thank you from Russian President Vladimir Putin. 
        In the same year, The Observer’s Mike Sainato reports, members of Congress were petitioning then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to block visas for Russian businessmen believed to be implicated in the death of Sergey Magnitsky in 2009. Among those who would be hurt by the act were members of Renaissance Capital. 
        In 2012, when the Magnitsky Act was finally brought to a vote, it was opposed by Hillary Clinton and the State Department. The Magnitsky Act is a US law punishing certain Russian nationals believed to be responsible for torturing and killing Magnitsky. Magnitsky accused corrupt officials of stealing $230 million from the firm where he was employed, Hermitage Capital, and was subsequently sent to prison on charges that he committed the crime he had exposed, where he died.
        There’s been a host of speculation that Donald Trump Jr.’s ill-advised – but prima facie legal – meeting with Veselnitskaya was the smoking gun linking the Trump campaign with the Russian government. Veselnitskaya drew Junior in with shiny baubles like "compromising information about Mrs. Clinton." He took the bait; as "many people" would have, according to the Trump patriarch. Alas, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
        Veselnitskaya dangled information "allegedly about connections Hillary Clinton and the DNC had with Russians, but that tends not to be a major focus of the stories on this," said Dan Kovalik in an interview with Loud & Clear’s Brian Becker. Kovalik is labor rights attorney who teaches at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.
        ​"[Veselnitskaya] did successfully lobby, it appears, Hillary Clinton to oppose the sanctions” listed in the Magnitsky Act, Kovalik confirmed. “And this was just around the time that Bill Clinton had received $500,000 for a speech that he gave in Moscow. So this is all very interesting in terms of possible connections this individual had with the Clintons.”  
        During Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president, her "research team" worked with major media news to silence America’s press lest the royal family be scrutinized about what some called Hillary’s abandonment of human rights in Russia and the stink of pay-to-play.
        In an internal memo from May 21, 2015, Clinton campaign guru John Podesta wrote in emails published by WikiLeaks that "with the help of the research team, we killed a Bloomberg story trying to link HRC’s opposition to the Magnitsky bill to a $500,000 speech that WJC gave in Moscow." 
        It’s not clear what tactics were used to "kill" the story or why Bloomberg obliged the campaign’s request, or indeed why Podesta would be working media backchannels to cover up the story if there were nothing to cover up.
        The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines collusion as "secret agreement or cooperation especially for an illegal or deceitful purpose." Lawfulness may not have been the issue here. But deceit? Uh, hello.
        A spokesperson for the Clintons implicitly or inadvertently reconfirmed to The Observer the cover up again by saying Bill’s speaking money and Hillary’s position switch on the Magnitsky Act weren’t related in any way.
        While $500,000 alone may not mean much to the wealthy Clinton family, the coordination of Bill’s speaking engagements and Hillary’s positions point again to a pay-to-play Clinton State Department, or at least a clear conflict of interest. 
        Correlation, of course, doesn’t prove causation, and lobbying and advocacy is standard between foreign governments, businesses petitioning the government and so forth. But once again, US media brush aside the potentially criminal half-a-million dollar coincidence when it crops up within the favored family. 
        "Public office is a public trust, and any effort to realize personal gain though official conduct is a violation of that trust," according to the District of Columbia’s legal definition of conflicts of interest.
        Veselnitskaya also shopped her case around to reporters, including many who spoke to The Hill about the issue.  Matthew Taibbi of Rolling Stone described accepting a meeting with someone described as a "colleague" of Veselnitskaya. "I went into the meeting expecting a scoop on another topic, and instead found myself essentially being lobbied about the Magnitsky Act," Taibbi reported Friday.
