• After The Last Nine Months, Putin's Military Buildup Over Last Decade Makes Sense

    The Kremlin Looked At The West And Saw Itself

    With the election steal by illegitimate Joe last November, the United States has lost all moral authority.

    It's fair to say this authority was slipping long before, notwithstanding the corrupt globalist media narrative.

    And just perhaps, the Russian FSB and GRU saw this earlier than anyone.

    As the old saying goes, it takes one to know one.

    After the initial fawning of the Bush 2 administration, with Dubya 'looking into Putin's soul and seeing a good man', things went downhill quickly. The war in Georgia (Russia's near abroad), and threats from Bush to support the former member of the Soviet Union against Moscow, brought tensions into the light.

    Then came Russian President Vladimir Putin's military buildup which culminated in the annexation of the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine, the war in Donbass, and a Russian expeditionary force landing in Syria to support the Assad regime.

    The rest is history, or should I say, it only got worse. Today relations between the West and Moscow are as tense as ever. A British naval vessel entering what Russia calls its sovereign waters off Crimea brought the new cold war to threats of violence.

    "We'll sink them next time", said the Russian Ministry of Defense.

    So how did it happen?

    With what has transpired over the last nine months in the United States, it is accurate to say the decay of the West is on full display, its elites in bed with communist China in a quest to rule over its vassals, the United States and Europe, and their serfs (that would be you and me).

    It seems a decade ago Putin looked into the West's soul and saw a growing powerful oligarchy with nuclear weapons, and a NATO alliance looking to turn the Russian steppe into a globalist farm, and Russian tech talent into a breeding ground for Apple and Microsoft engineers for Beijing.

    The Kremlin looked at the West and saw itself -- an oligarchy more powerful than Putin and the gang, who would rival the Kremlin's hold on power. This new oligarchy was run by Soros, Xi, Klaus Schwab and Obama (God knows who else).

    Dya Dya Volva started designing and buying new armaments, modernizing the Russian military, and improving its capabilities. Putin started threatening, harassing the West, and repeating, "Don't forget, we have nuclear weapons".

    Vlad kicked the Soros NGOs out of the Russian Federation, he passed the 'gay propaganda law', and enshrined marriage in the Russian constitution as between a man and a woman. He linked the Kremlin irrevocably with the Russian Orthodox Church, all in an effort to prevent the Soros Marxist agenda from gaining a foothold again in the Motherland.

    These measures are not sincere you may say. But as the Vietnamese general told the American general when told he never defeated the U.S. on the battlefield -- it is also irrelevant.

    Russia has experienced communism's evils and doesn't want it repeated.

    That is not to say the Russian government is 'of the people and by the people'. It is not.

    However, there is one truth -- the new 'aggressive globalist' West has been chomping at Moscow's door, attempting to push Putin and his boys out of power.

    The world will not have peace until the globalist scourge is gone for good. Only when nation-states can stand up for the people will Moscow and Washington be able to achieve 'detente'.

    And only when the Kremlin finds a way to support and defend the Russian middle class, and harness their brilliance, will Russia the Russian people have a better life. Unfortunately, right now, Vlad's boys won't let that happen.

    Perhaps just an addendum, the globalists and Russia seems to manifest a core communist mind disrespect for the human beings minds, which is their main distinctivness from the encyclopedists of the individual enlightenment very respectful approach.

    Russia is a Federalist State. Russia is no longer the USSR. With the complete overthrow of documented voters in America, Russia may be a more honest democracy than America is today - certainly more honest than anything in Europe.
    Russia has 1/3 the GDP as Germany. - 1/2 the GDP of Italy/France/Spain. Russia has a GDP similar to Taiwan, with 10,000x the area.
    Russia - for the last 80 years has been almost completely focused on finding a warm water port for its navy. Cuba didn't work out; Crimea was its best chance - which it would not give up - ever.
    Even Crimea is not an open water port.
    If the western world would embrace Russia, they would destroy China instantly, and all the World would be FREE! Unfortunately, everyone wants the slave labor from China, so China is going to take over everything.
    There is evil in the World, and today, most of it comes from China.

    Joe Biden is as corrupt as Vladimir Putin, and more morally dissolute in a sense. The Russian people are at least rediscovering God and their roots as an Orthodox Christian nation lost after the Bolsheviks rose to power.

    Joe Biden has no foreign policy because Joe Biden used the same general tactics to take power as Putin. China knows this well, and has reminded Biden of this fact ever since he's been in office.

    ☦️ This article reflects my view of world politics. Over the past few years I have watched Putin -

    - Reunite Russia with the Church
    - Financially support nationalist movements in Europe like Le Pen
    - Publicly stand up to the Globalists and their evil transgender/anti family agenda
    - Block Russians who have accepted Soros's aid (like Alexander Navalny)

    In my opinion, Christian patriots all around the global should band together to fight the Democrats, #bigtech, the European Union and the #CCP.

    WWI and WWII were won with alliances. Non of us will survive WWIII unless we get together, share our resources and fight our common enemies.


    This one of L Todd Woods most penetrating articles.
    It's short and sweet but it covers a lot of ground.
    Religion, nationalism, and some form of authoritarianism are the ways to save what will be left of Western Christian Civilization in the East when the EU devolves into race and religious wars and America collapses.
    Cultural Communism[?] ,or whatever, has become so intertwined with what passes for democracy that the ordinary voter can not be trusted not to commit political suicide.
    The Western Elites are suicidal yet keep being re-elected.
    Angela Merkel of Germany is a case in point.
    I wonder if future historians will conclude that she did more harm to Europe than 10 Hitlers.?
    Then there is Wash DC --would the world be a better place if it was a radioactive pit?
    The common people can no longer be trusted because they are no longer a moral people.
    How can they be when Death, in the form of Human Sacrifice, is the foundation of American Society.
    Western Civilization has run its course.
    I think it became collateral damage from the Vietnam War.
    The anti-war Boomer's hate for their WWII fathers united with the ideology pushed by their Leftist professors.
    Globalism evolved in response to Boomer pique and vexations.


    Nothing can change the Fact that Putin is the Man. And right now the only Major Countries not in Crisis or Collapse are the Communistic and Dictator/ Totalitarian. Think Russia North Korea and China. Life looks A LOT more stable in those Countries. We are living in a Totalitarian Country in the USA and we have been for almost our Entire Republic.

    P.S. Putin is the Man. Always has been, always will be and everyone knows it.


    Another reason for the Russian build up might be that they saw that the USA was becoming increasingly unstable, [been there, done that, as the saying goes], and if America collapsed the world would fall into chaos and Russia would be alone facing the Red Chinese.
