The desperate world order has ordered up a witch doctor to get Russia President Vladimir Putin. After almost three decades of failed attempts to thwart Putin, the western ruling elites have turned to a Siberian medicine man. News of Aleksandr Gabyshev, a shaman wants to perform an exorcism on Russia’s president, it’s something out of a Bullwinkle Show episode.
The New York Times story tells THE WORLD how this shaman and a YouTube vlogging taxi driver named Dmitry Bairov are setting the dissident soul of Yakutsk on fire. Anton Troianovski, who is also a Putin hating keyboard pecker for the Washington Post, writes:
“That a mystic and a video-blogging taxi driver could touch off prolonged unrest in Ulan-Ude, a city of 400,000 people, underscored the depth and breadth of a new season of Russian discontent.”
The fanatical liberalism of Mr. Troianovski echoes the same old diatribe of the Soviet Union reborn, a mention of the K.G.B. as if that agency were eviler than the CIA, and Crimea – always, always, always Crimea. No, I am not kidding. The New York Times is now searching the deep forests of Siberia for spiritual help to overthrow Putin. The world’s most famous newspaper now posts images of pissed off Communists who lost a Mayoral election to try and explain the “spell” a former plumber has put on Ulan-Ude. While you try and “vision quest” this…
In other Putin news recently, the Russia-Africa Summit shows Putin is taking over the dark continent. Putin’s Skyfall killer missile program was also deemed “foolish” and at the same time an “alarming new threat to the U.S.” after her withdrawal from the Anti-ballistic Missile Treaty? Clearly, nobody writing the western narrative remembers the U.S. Pentagon paying millions back in 2010 to create an Active Denial System to blast extremely high-frequency waves at the enemy in order to “cook” them into submission. That weapon, intended to barbeque an enemy on the battlefield, only managed light sunburn damage, which was easily defended against by a coat of SPF-30 from Hawaiian Tropic. NO! I am not joking.
The United States’ 2000s effort to bring back Puke Rays, tar coated pigs to thwart elephant charges in the time of Alexander, even Russia’s goofy assed Novgorod warship prove weapons tests just go awry. But Business Insider and many others harp and harp on a missile development Mr. Putin has already spoken about. Then there’s the “news” Russia is gearing up for a confrontation with the U.S. in the Caribbean Sea. Now get this.
According to Foreign Policy Magazine, Russia helping longtime friend Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro out by allowing the country to pay its debts is an act of war. Here, maybe it’s better to read from the report on an “oil for debt” plan between Russia and Venezuela:
“A central facilitator of the exports is Rosneft, Russia’s state-owned oil company, which has been accepting Venezuelan crude as a form of loan repayment. In this way, Russian President Vladimir Putin is playing a leading role in keeping Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro afloat.”
FP’s Ryan C. Berg, who is also a research fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) think tank, figures Venezuela should pay foreign debt in blood, I guess. Sorry, I cannot reveal more of Berg’s master strategy, you can get access beyond the paywall for a little over $2 a month at Foreign Policy if you hurry.
Finally, President Putin ordering all foreign militaries off the sovereign soil of Syria leaves some western media foghorns confused over just what to report. The Hill ran a story which almost seemed positive when Putin warned off intervention in Syria:
“Everyone who is illegitimately on the territory of any state, in this case, Syria, must leave this territory. This applies to all states.”
Public Radio International (PRI) takes a refreshingly objective approach to Russia’s role in Syria, which gives me hope we could still avert World War III. The American public radio program interviewed Yury Barmin, Middle East and North Africa director at the Moscow Policy Group about Russia’s main goals in the Syrian conflict. This, in and of itself, shows not all media in the United States has turned to the Wicked Witch of the West – Wizard of Oz policy reporting. Alisa Miller, Executive Chairman of PRI/PRX, is the most influential woman in technology. For me, the objective view by PRI indicates a shift in U.S./Russia relations – at least at the propaganda level. But that’s another story.
Back to the liberal order’s desperate witch doctor strategy, Leonid Bershidsky at Bloomberg has taken up geographical wizardry all his own. According to this Putin hater slash Stars & Stripes author, Russia is in the Middle East. This rabies struck Bloomberg syndicated columnist also believes Russia has no geopolitical power except her military? Here’s a quote from Bloomberg:
“Like the Russian czars of old, who saw it as their goal to support monarchies everywhere, he is a consistent opponent of regime change and backer of incumbents.”
You get the theme, I know. Demonize Putin, no matter what. Remind the readership, listener, and viewer of past fearmongering. Add in some new universal fears like radiation or world domination. Then stir, stir, stir your warlock stew pot for a potion to ward off Vladimir Putin – the man who would make Russian zombies of the world. Now there’s only one chapter left.
President Putin, won’t you get your own shaman? Is there no modern Grigori Rasputin holy man to protect you from the liberal order’s spells? Laurence Huot-Solovieff, the great-granddaughter of Rasputin, is still alive I believe. Now THAT would make a sensational story for the New York Times. “Putin sets Rasputin’s Great-Granddaughter on World Order!”
