NY Times:Putin Assails Russians Who Back the West, Signaling More Repression.
By now finally and firmly in control at home while protected from an external NATO war by Trump and the patriots, Vlad the Bad — the clever chess grandmaster who took 22 years to patiently outmaneuver the once untouchable Deep State (((oligarchs))) and Soros / NGO operatives of Russia — is finally unchained. Known historically to be reserved in both temperament and choice of words, Vlad the Mad’s recent verbal tirade before the nation comes as a welcome shock to our own ears.
From the speech, a few choice excerpts for your enjoyment:
“The Russian people will always be able to distinguish true patriots from scum and traitors and simply spit them out onto the pavement like a fly that accidentally flew into their mouths. I am convinced that such a natural and necessary self-purification of society will only strengthen our country, our solidarity, cohesion and readiness to respond to any challenges.
“The so-called collective West has no use — simply no use — for a strong and sovereign Russia, and they will not forgive us for our independent policy or for standing up for our national interests. The struggle we are waging is a struggle for our sovereignty, for the future of our country and our children.”
Tell it, Tsar Vladimir. Tell it!
Putin understands Russian history and must surely appreciate the parallels between Russia’s Middle Ages enslavement to, and eventual liberation from, the Mongols — and its more recent subordination to, and ongoing liberation from, the Khazarian Mafia (whose ancestors cooperated with the Mongols.)
The Monsters from Mongolia had conquered Moscow and Kiev by the mid-1200’s. During the early 1300’s, the Russians started an independence struggle which did not end Mongol rule (aka the “Mongol Yoke“) until 1480. In the beginning of this generational struggle, Russian rulers (the Rus) resisted Mongol rule. As a result, the superior Mongol forces laid waste to much of the countryside. In time, the Rus, under the leadership of national hero Alexander Nevsky, realized that a direct frontal resistance was futile, and chose to patiently cooperate with the Mongols and bide time instead.
Their Empire was so vast that the Mongols simply couldn’t control everyone. As a result, the Rus and their all-important Christian Church were left alone, provided the oriental overlords got their taxes. The Rus gained the trust of their masters and maintain a degree of power within the overall Mongol empire.
The overstretched Mongols ignored the seemingly loyal “Duchy of Moscow” as it slowly conquered other Russian states — patiently growing and growing until it became a force in its own right. When Moscow grew strong enough — as the vast Mongol empire weakened — Ivan III simply decided to stop paying the Asiatic overlords. In 1480, a force of Mongol-Turko-Tatars were told to back-off or face annihilation in battle. They left without fighting after the Great Stand on the Ugra River. also known as the bloodless Battle of Ugra. Russia was free.
Only a fool, governed by passion instead of reason, would launch a direct frontal assault against a vastly superior adversary. Muscovite leaders of centuries ago — from Nevsky of the 1200’s to Ivan III of the 1400’s — understood the political imperative of “kissing Mongol ass until you can kick it.” So did Putin. Unfortunately, members of the Sunshine Patriot desertion brigades, as well as the whiny backseat “Are-We-There-Yet?” chorus of today’s “far right” — who tend to wet their panties upon seeing old photos of Putin or Trump lighting candles and chit-chatting with rabbis; or shaking hands with Klaus Schwab at Davos — simply do not.
The doctrine, set forth by Chinese military philosopher Sun Tzu, is called the “Art of War.” Putin has studied it, and so has Trump. Patience, boys & girls. Patience.
