[this commentary was written for the Unz Review]
By now, you have all heard it. Here is the official transcript:
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Director of National Intelligence came out with a report today saying that Vladimir Putin authorized operations during the election to under — denigrate you, support President Trump, undermine our elections, divide our society. What price must he pay?
PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: He will pay a price. I, we had a long talk, he and I, when we — I know him relatively well. And I– the conversation started off, I said, “I know you and you know me. If I establish this occurred, then be prepared.”
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: You said you know he doesn’t have a soul.
PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: I did say that to him, yes. And — and his response was, “We understand one another.” It was– I wasn’t being a wise guy. I was alone with him in his office. And that — that’s how it came about. It was when President Bush had said, “I looked in his eyes and saw his soul.” I said, “Looked in your eyes and I don’t think you have a soul.” And looked back and he said, “We understand each other.” Look, most important thing dealing with foreign leaders in my experience, and I’ve dealt with an awful lot of ’em over my career, is just know the other guy. Don’t expect somethin’ that you’re– that — don’t expect him to– or her to– voluntarily appear in the second editions of Profiles in Courage.
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: So you know Vladimir Putin. You think he’s a killer?
PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Uh-huh. I do.
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: So what price must he pay?
PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: The price he’s gonna pay we’ll– you’ll see shortly.
This is truly a historic interview and a watershed moment in US-Russia relations. Let’s deconstruct what is happening here:
“Director of National Intelligence came out with a report”: Ever since 9/11, the US intel community has been under huge pressure to produce not intelligence, but to serve as a kind of criterion of truth, a substitute for any rules of evidence. For example, if tomorrow Biden’s handlers want to accuse Putin of eating newborn babies for breakfast, all they have to do is get the US intel community to produce a report which will say with “great confidence” that it is “highly likely” that Putin does, indeed, like to start his days by snacking on babies. The “logic” here works like this: “since we (the West) are the good guys, our intelligence community is objective, non-political and trustworthy”. QED. And the fact that the history of both the CIA and the FBI prove beyond any reasonable doubt that both of these agencies were totally politicized for decades does not matter. Why? Because the also “objective, non-political and trustworthy” US media says that the intel community must be trusted because it is, you guessed it, “objective, non-political and trustworthy”. Oh the beauty of circular logic….
“What price must he pay?”. This one is so important that Stephanopoulos asks this twice and Biden “reassures” him twice. The message here is that it is not Stephanopoulos who demands a retaliation, it is the vox populi, the outraged people of the United States. And why would the people of the USA hate Putin and Russia and demand retaliation? Why – because the objective, non-political and trustworthy US media fully endorses the claims of the objective, non-political and trustworthy US intel community! How can anybody possibly doubt these two paragons of honesty?! Only a “Putin agent” would doubt their word, right?
“Putin does not have a soul”. This is pretty pathetic, since Stephanopoulos comes from a Greek Orthodox family he should know that all humans have a soul and to suggest otherwise is, actually, a total and categorical rejection of everything Christianity stands for. It is also a clear case of dehumanization, something which all politicians do before they turn to violence and war. It is unlikely that Biden has any idea what he did or did not tell Putin when they met, but even if we assume that Biden did actually tell Putin that he had no soul, I can just imagine the true amazement (and inner giggle) of Putin hearing that. By the way, the “official” response of Putin was “we understand each other” which makes absolutely no logical sense. So what we have is a basically brain dead pseudo “President” who is programmed by his handlers to tell the US public that Putin has no soul and that Biden told him that face to face. What actual purpose such a statement would pursue is neither asked nor answered.
“Is Putin a killer”. First, what a fantastically stupid thing to ask. Why? Because this question has no objective meaning unless the context or scope is specified. It could mean “did he commit murder?“, that is illegal manslaughter, a crime under Russian law. Or it could mean “did he, the President of Russia, order Russian special services to kill Litvinenko, Skripal, Navalnyii and others?“. This would be legal under Russian law and, in fact, the Russians have never denied ordering the execution of, say, Wahabi terrorists (both in Russia and outside). That would be a policy decision similar to one the US used to (putatively) execute Osama Bin-Laden or General Soleimani. Finally, that question could also mean “did Putin as the commander in chief of the Russian armed forces order military operations which resulted in the loss of human life, including possible innocent human life?“. This would also be a policy decision which any commander in chief has to make. These are all completely different questions, but for micro-brains like Stephanopoulos or Biden, the purpose of questions is not to elicit answers, it is to set an emotional tone, a kind of “mental background” which Orwell very aptly called the “two minutes of hate“.
Yes, all of the above is completely unprecedented: not even in the worst hours of the Cold War did western politicians use that kind of language. What we witness today is not only truly extremely dangerous, it is also the end of diplomacy. Yes, I know, ever since the Obama administration, US “diplomats” were mostly unprofessional political appointees with a fantastically low level of education, fully compensated by an fantastically high level of arrogance and hypocrisy. But while the likes of Psaki would spew any idiocy imaginable, US Presidents have never sunk to the level of Biden.
You might wonder what the Russian reaction to all that is?
First, the Russian media immediately picked up on this and posted key excerpts of this interview with Russian voice-over, as did the Russian Internet. The goal here is simple: to show each and every Russian how much the West hates Russia and everything Russian. Furthermore, it does not take a genius to understand the implications of the combination of the two following two facts:
- Putin is by far the most popular Russian politician, at least since Stalin
- The West sees Putin as some kind of devil incarnate
- Ergo: the West hates all the Russian people for regularly voting for Putin
Simple and quite undeniable. In fact, an increasing number of Russians are saying “we are the Jews of the 21st century” and, frankly, I cannot disagree with this. The big difference here is that 20th century Jews did not have thousands of nuclear weapons to defend themselves. Russians do.
I wonder if Stephanopoulos and the rest of them understand this? I don’t think so. There is a culture of total impunity in the USA which stems from the fact that the US never fought a war in defense of the US mainland in its history and from the fact that the USA used to be protected by two oceans and two absolutely peaceful neighbors.
In sharp contrast, Russia has no natural borders and 1000 years experience of war, most of them existential and most fought on Russian soil.
I would also add that the other comment many Russian officials are making is that Biden simply lacks even basic manners. To make clear: they are not only saying that Biden has zero understanding of diplomacy, they are saying that Biden simply has no basic manners which any semi-educated person ought to have. On the main Russian TV channel reporters were even asking today whether Russia ought to completely break diplomatic relations with the USA! That would be a very dangerous mistake and I don’t think that the Kremlin will go so far, at least officially, but there is a clear understanding amongst Russian officials while officially the two countries still have diplomatic relations, in reality the US basically terminated them.
Do I really have to spell out here how insanely dangerous this is?
While it is absolutely normal for some tribes still living in the bronze-age to play out ritual threats and displays of macho prowess in order to impress an adversary, to see the (nominal) leader of a nuclear superpower acting like such a bronze-age tribal leader is perplexing to say the least.
And just like the Sentinelese tribesmen believe that their bows and arrows can scare away metal ships and even helicopters, so do the “Biden tribesmen” (let’s call them that) hope that sanctions or US military capabilities will scare Russia into complete submission.
Furthermore, at no time does Stephanopoulos question the moral and legal right of the US President to “punish” Russia and/or Putin. In fact, by repeating this question, he strongly suggests that punishing Russia and/or Putin is not only the right of the US President, but his moral and, possibly, even legal obligation. This is exactly what Dr John Marciano calls “empire as a way of life” (see here and here for details). This ignorant, arrogant, narcissistic, messianic and terminally delusional belief that the USA is some kind of “collective messiah” tasked by nature or some god with policing the planet. The Sentinelese try to “defend” their own shores and land and they don’t have millions of members in an organization called “Veterans of Foreign Wars” (have they really no shame at all?) and they don’t spend on “defense” more than the rest of the planet combined.
Finally, we can rest assured that whoever is in command of the Sentinelese he (or she) is a much smarter and honest leader than the brain-dead vegetable that the theft of the US 2020 election put into power.
In Hans Christian Andersen’s wonderful tale the breaking moment comes when an innocent child explains “he hasn’t got anything on!“, while the rest of the people are under the spell of what is called “pluralistic ignorance“.
In conclusion, let me ask you: how soon do you think that declaring, say, “Uncle Shmuel is truly brain dead…” will become a criminal offense in the so-called “the land of the free and the home of the brave“?
Very shameful of the US president to say such things to another foreign leader. I doubt the USA will exist much longer as the most powerful nation in the world. USA is filled with evil leaders and most stupid leaders in the world. Their time is about over.
I doubt the old drooling idiot actually said any of that. This reminds of nothing so much as grade school schoolyard taunts delivered to the crowd after the fact by the wimpy kid with the big brother he knows will defend him so he can run his mouth with impunity. I picture Vlad going along with it all with a wry smile on his face, as he thinks to himself, “If this poor old fool only knew the terrible beatdown I intend to lay on him just as soon as the opportunity is right!” This is all just pathetic agitprop for domestic consumption, not that most Americans these days are smart or alert enough to pay attention either way.
I think you are absolutely correct. That and a preamble to whatever reckless move they will try next….
The point is that Sleepy Joe Biden is not the President of the United States. He was never elected, being placed into power by the neocons after a soft coup d’etat in November of 2020, when we saw the most outrageous election steal in US history.
The point is that the neocons in the US needed a puppet in the White House, who would continue the globalist Agenda of introducing a globalist empire run by corporations and private banks. For that to succeed, both Russia and China need to be broken up and plundered. Too late for that, and by now it’s clear that not only is Sleepy Joe brain dead, but the neocon elite which is still living in the past, incapable of fully understanding that the world is changing.
What the neocon elite is very much aware is the fact that the present Western financial Ponzie scheme cannot function perpetually, showing signs of financial collapse. You cannot keep postponing gigantic foreign and internal debts and at the same time keep printing funny money in the trillions. For this scheme to have any chance of being maintained, then good old fashioned plundering is required, the chief targets being Russia and China. And now we have the answer why Anglo-American elites are aggressively disposed towards both countries. A boiling point is being created, which can explode into something very dangerous and suicidal. When a rat is cornered, it becomes dangerous, as proven by the neocons, who are apparently losing their nerve, failing to achieve a globalist world wide empire, while the empire they have created is showing signs of dissolution.
The steal was in much earlier than November. Biben was a mediocre candidate in the primaries until Sanders and Gabbard were ostracized by a vicious co-ordinated media campaign by the DNC. Then suddenly the remaining candidates step down in favour of Biden after a handful of primary elections, which remember are run by the DNC, and which we know they rigged in the previous election cycle! As for the November election, the Democratic party has a very long history of successful election fraud and rigging (by the way so do the Republicans), in an electoral system designed to maximise such opportunities for said misbehaviour. Biden was chosen by the establishment as a dependable house servant to do their bidding. Yes the election was stolen, and yes as the decrepitude of Joe Biden becomes more and more apparent, the people of the US are going to have it shoved in their face that the election was rigged and stolen. They will be angry because they would never have voted for such a man, and therefore they were duped, and that it was cruel to elevate a man in such a poor state of health to the highest office in the country.
He also called President Xi a thug. So what’s new?
You’re right, I grew up in So. CA and had the greatest life as a child and up to the millennia when everything changed after 9.11 The point and the problem is that most people define America as the government whereas I define it as the people who by and large are friendly, decent and caring. Are they misled? For sure, but they are indoctrinated from early childhood and they resist the idea that their government might be a monster, same as a child does with an abusive parent. Americans are mostly sheep, but they are good sheep and after all even us “superior” humans share a herd mentality, i.e. shepherd/sheep. So it pains me to know that it will be we the people who will suffer the fallout of any hostilities with Russia or Iran or China or Venezuela for that matter. The slime overlords will avoid the radar as always.
This shows how much whoever “leads” US is detached from the reality. I do not know what kind of drug they are using, but I want some of that s**t! Lost of common sense in US is astonishing. They could not win war against Serbia when they were the strongest and now they want to go against Russia and China at the same time!?!
Just my humble thoughts on US not “winning wars”. I doubt that the aim of any wars US fought in last 3 or 4 decades was to win them in conventional way (as Allies won the WW2). Aim was to destroy the leadership (Iraq, Libya) and any will behind idea of getting rid of US Petro$ within the said countries. Controlling certain parts of the countries for the purpose of oil companies stealing oil from those countries is just an icing on the cake.
They could not care less about not waving american flag from the capital cities. Leadership destroyed, petrodollar hegemony preserved, oil on tap secured, mission accomplished.
Serbian war was just another link in the chain that is surrounding Russia in unfriendly countries or destroying the countries that are friendly to Russia. Mission accomplished. I am a Croatian and I was at the time (was in my late teens, with all the naivety and arrogance of a late teen) happy for Croatia to get its independence. Later on I realised that US government just used this as a pretext to destroy Yugoslavia and Serbia, we were just pawns in great game. Now Croatia is ruled by a puppet government that does what is told by the powers to be, as UK, New Zealand, Australia (where I currently live). Quite frankly, I am disgusted by the whole affair.
It is a bankers world, whether we like it or not. Get rid of fiat, tie currencies to gold or silver, you would see a whole lot of less warmongering……
If words betray future deeds, then I wouldn’t put it past the US to do something irreversibly stupid. If cooler heads do exist, the time for them to act is now.
What you are witnessing is simply fluff.
Fill in time between bigger battles.
The action needed is to remove this dangerous and crazy man from the highest office in our land, whether through an impeachment trial, a military coup or an actual citizen insurrection that dislodges the entire Democrat line of succession, as they are all knee-jerk warmongers and an existential danger to this country. When the funny money created for “covid relief” runs out and the government is truly bust, there will be daily riots that will make the Antifa/BLM summer of 2020 look like a picnic. Attach demands for a regime change to the civil unrest. Put Tulsi Gabbard and Rand Paul in charge when the Dems finally do a Yanukovych.
He is NOT in office. Only pretending to be, so whatever the MSM reports him as having done, is all fake and meaningless. Connect the dots and don’t fall into their trap of believing what you are told.
The US government and the lapdog-journalists like the miserable Mr. Stephanopoulos have collectively morphed into – flirtatious, narcissistic, poorly educated, shameless, and entitled. It seems that Mr. Stephanopoulos is too much occupied with paying a mortgage for his mansion in D.C., which leaves no place for decency in his life. What a wretch.
Georgie boy comes from money. In fact, his sister is or was an abbys (игумина) In a convent of her creation in upstate NY. Plenty of family bucks.
Russian ambassador to US recalled back to Moscow. My guess is that russian now need to decide how to deal with brain dead lunatics …
What does “recall” actually mean? Does that mean for consultation only and then the same ambassador comes back or does this mean this one is recalled “for good” and then a new ambassador is sent when diplomatic relations are restored?
Fyi Recalled for consultation only
Here is what the RFM’s Maria Zakharova stated about the recall. We await what this means:
“….Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov has been invited to Moscow for consultations, to determine the prospects of the future relationship with Washington, Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement published on the minsitry’s website…….”
“To determine the prospects of the future relationship with Washington”
So there could be a break off of diplomatic ties?
President Putin has given his dignified response today:
“….Speaking on Thursday, Putin suggested that Biden may be projecting, noting that evaluating other countries “is like looking in a mirror.”
“When I was a kid, when we were arguing with each other in the playground, we used to say, ‘Whatever you say [about others] is what you are yourself,’” Putin added.
Putin also noted that Washington is “determined” to have a relationship with Moscow, but only on “issues that are of interest to the United States itself.”
“Even though they think we are like them, we are different people. We have a different genetic and cultural and moral code,” he said.
According to the president, the US will have to deal with a Moscow that will fight for and stand up for its own interests, even if Washington doesn’t wish to engage.
“The US will have to reckon with this, despite their attempts to stop our development via sanctions and insults,” he said…….”
and from Tass:
Breaking off diplomatic ties will not happen. That is like asking your barber do I need a haircut. Russia is selling US half million barrels of oil per day. US still uses Russian rockets for their space program (satellites). US corporations are all over Russia, so it’s not going to happen. Russia dumping US dollars that is why US is using sanctions, Nord Stream, Turk Stream plus South Stream can lead to lots of US dollars dumped. No one gains by not talking. When lawyers tell you don’t talk to the other side that means more money for the lawyer.
By the way: Maria Zakharova masters the Chinese language just as well aswith her Enlish language skills (leared during CHildhood in multicultural cindergatten and early elementary primary school in Bĕijing). Both parents being patriotic russian diplomats, they still observed Jewish Passover traditions.
“Called back for the time being” — timline duration not really specified, but means he’s still accredited to Washington D.C.
I hope the Russians simple keep their ambassador at home, let the diplomatic contact go on conducted by lower level officers.
the Russians must react, must do something! this is way to egregious to avoid reaction that protects Russian self respect! but I agree that breaking full diplomatic contact could be a mistake
Yes, I have been mulling the same thoughts – down grading their Embassy in the US and doing the same to the US Embassy in Russia. Only leave those sections that still function too.
The Russian Ambassador is due back on 20th March for his consultations:
Interesting comments by a senior Russian Senator:
“US President Joe Biden’s boorish remarks about Russian leader Vladimir Putin will inevitably have a negative impact on relations between the two countries, Deputy Speaker of the Russian Federation Council (the upper house of parliament) Konstantin Kosachev wrote on Facebook on Thursday……..
“This is a fault line. These boorish remarks have killed off all expectations that the new US administration will pursue a new policy towards Russia,” Kosachev noted. According to him, “evaluations like these from a statesman of such a high rank are generally unacceptable.” The Russian senator stressed that the remarks had come from the president of the country “that drops a bomb somewhere in the world every 12 minutes, according to expert estimates.” “As a result, the death of more than 500,000 people has been linked to US actions since 2001. Could you comment on that, Mr. Biden?” Kosachev said………..”
The West wanted Crimea, it didn’t occur to them that the Russians wanted it.
The West wanted to wipe out Syria, it didn’t occur to them that the Russians were interfering.
Stupid speeches by American presidents relieve the Russians of all moral inhibitions.
Andreas, I must try to correct your misconceptions:
The West wanted Crimea, it didn’t occur to our Leaders that Crimea is Russian.
The West wanted to wipe out Syria, it didn’t occur to them that Syria would resist and Russia would come to her aid.
Stupid speeches by POTU$As seem devoid of all moral inhibitions.
Thank you for the necessary corrections. Andreas probably meant well but he should have been careful about whose territory Crimea has always been part of.
The whole Maidan with costs of 5 billion dollars was initiated by the USA so that they could threaten Moscow from Crimea. The result was the same as always. The West experienced a debacle.
Herr Herr. Thank you for reiterating that it does get tedious doesn’t it.. Sigh..
“Andreas”: ‘Wanting the Crimea (Krim penninsula) was the only common interest of Turkey, Great Britain and France 178 years ago. Getting rid of this delution for the Turks would cut the Gordian knots of their Ottoman bewildernes.
Biden should be impeached for cognitive impairment…and he should not have been allowed to run for presidency on the same grounds… To threat a nuclear superpower is madness, dangerous and irresponsible demential gibberish and the rest of the world should remind this to the Americans and make them accountable (by the way according to wikipedia the United Nations are supposed to ” maintain international peace and security, develop friendly relations among nations, achieve international cooperation, and be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations.” Sounds like a joke isn’t?).
So the Chinese Covid fake was not enough for the Democrats to change course toward the cliff.
I dont see any Zone B.
China is full in on the Great Reset and all the liberal bs of Clima Green Deal AI Digitalisation Surveillance Machine NWO.
Russia’s biggest bank was recently host for WEF, IMF, and the World Elite to organise Global Digitalisation (enslavement) of the Russian Community.
Western ground schools are about to change education into “computer thinking”. Tesla spinning the world into an electrical/electromagnetic prison.
So Ahriman’s machine world is here, and………………………..then what?
An interesting comment by Andrei Turchak a Senior Russian lawmaker. Openly calls out Biden’s dementia…….
“The remarks of US President Joe Biden about his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin present a challenge to the whole country and are “a triumph of political insanity,” Secretary General of the ruling United Russia party and First Deputy Speaker of the Federation Council (upper house of parliament) Andrei Turchak noted Wednesday. Biden’s statement is just a triumph of political insanity in the US and age-caused dementia of their leader. It is the ultimate level of aggression caused by powerlessness,” the party’s press service quoted him as saying.
According to the lawmaker, Biden “cannot reach the approval ratings” of Putin. “Generally, it is a disgraceful and shameless statement. It is a challenge to our whole country……….”
That is the way to go – call out Biden’s dementia publicly. It will be interesting to see what Russia’s next steps are after recalling their Ambassador to the US…….It is frightening that Biden has his finger on the nuclear button.
Concerning the nuclear-codes.
Let’s hope he is still so confused and propably dement he cannot remember the codes.
Wishful thinking? Or …
do not wake up Sleepy Uncle Joe because isn’t it KamALA who is “running the show” (in California and/or Georgia?) from her private handy to the Chinese, her Bosses?.
“Wishful thinking?” You bet, he probably wrote down the codes on a sticker on his desk.
Biden is an incredibly vulgar man.
Vulgar beyond comprehension.
It is impossible to see where his vulgarity ends and his dementia starts.
But he has always been vulgar.
His manner of speech is gross. Dropping his g’s thrusting his verbal chest out.
Would love to see him come a cropper on a flight of stairs.
I am surprised at Stephanopoulas. I thought he had mellowed somewhat since the days of Reagan and kind of started to make a bit of sense. (Wasn’t it Steph who allowed as how Reagon’s economics were voodoo economics? Or was that Bush senior?)
So Steph has lost any shred of sense he might have acquired via maturity.
Not to mention the other real hyenas making their lairs in DC.
We have a real disaster on our hands.
Leaves one ever more speechless.
Several days ago I was on The Duran Livestream and provided my analysis of Biden’s Alzheimers Disease. Skip to 2:00 on the video and I come on right after that.
I showed my mother this biDen clip.
A 72 year old woman was rendered speechless, she wonders how the u.s public accept that a openly dementia suffering president say such bullshit.
I reminded her that he is in control of the nuclear weapons, she just stared at me and said “å faen”.
For what it’s worth, I do not believe he is really in control of them. I don’t think Trump was, really.
But of course, the problem here is that the old oblammy ‘blob’ probably is, and they are back. Stupid as ever.
I trust what the Saker says.
But the above Biden quotes were so astonishing that I had to do an internet search to confirm that he really said those things.
Look. Stephanopoulos is a moron. Anyone who follows American politics knows that. Stephanopoulos is a complete fool and he has always been a complete fool.
But for an American president to say crazy things like this is shocking.
Aught not be too long before he realizes he shouldn’t have taken this job in the first place.
Energy he said, they said we’ll get you the energy, and off he went.
Even more surprising (or, really, scary) is that he wasn’t ad-libbing. The whole thing was recorded before being aired, and necessarily vetted by Guiden’s custodians. These are the Drs Strangelove.
You should not “trust what the Saker says.” (and I’m sure he’d agree with me on that). Do your own research!
Do you seriously believe that dopey, front-man Biden told Putin he has no soul? What’s wrong with you?
Food for thought: ” Threat display is a type of animal behaviour in which aggressive postures are adopted or intimidating markings revealed. Such displays are common in fish and birds involved in defence of TERRITORY, and often result in the retreat of the threatened animals, so avoiding direct conflict. ” For instance you can read, “Threat displays in birds” an article by Peter L Hurd and Magnus Enquist, January 2001Canadian Journal of Zoology 79:931-942: “Threat displays are chosen on the basis of internalfactors, such as hunger or sex, as well as external factors,such as the opponent’s sex or dominance status. This meansthat both motivational and strategic considerations determineagonistic signals, and there is no good reason for believingthat signallers are somehow constrained to use the one signalthey do (i.e., these signals are not performance displays;Hurd 1997a). These displays rank consistently on a scale ofwillingness to escalate that reflects a variable level of moti-vation combined with a strategic assessment of probable op-ponent motivation and ability. Patterns of varying use withseason suggest that signallers are not indicating a specificprobability of attack, but rather the motivation to attack(Hinde 1981). Analysis of alternative strategies shows that atrade-off between effectiveness in repelling opponents andrisk of provoking an escalation underlies threat displays. Allof these observations are consistent with the view that threatdisplays are conventional signals rather than handicaps,whose costs and benefits are a function of their influence on receiver behaviour”….
In other words, we’re (the US) weak, so we need to act strong to deter you. And, since we’re also certifiably crazy as hell, you can never be 100% sure that we won’t carry our our threats. Yep, sounds like DC alright. A third (fourth?) world failed state with nuclear weapons, numerous raging mental illnesses, and a bad attitude. What could go wrong?
Here in Greece we fight Mitsotakis and CIA from 17 November 2020!
Viva Putin and China!
I cannot even summon outrage. I mean, this has been going on for a long time toward smaller countries .. Bashar El Assad is a monster who ‘gasses his own people’. Iraq has ‘weapons of mass destruction’. General Suleimani is a ‘very bad man’ and “He was a monster. And he’s no longer a monster. He’s dead”. “We came, we saw, he’s dead.”
But this is unprecedented toward a relatively equal nuclear armed country. The current US junta is yearning back to the age of the cold war and the age where they still had a functioning petrodollar and could call themselves a hegemon. Those times are over .. they are lost in a demented dreamland and they still think they rule the world. They are also fast losing the sanctions weapon as more and more trade is being done without the petrodollar and sanctions have no bite that cannot be overcome, while that regime tumbles.
I won’t be surprised if Russia kicks the US Astronaut that came late to beg for a flight to the ISS right out of the rocket – refund his ticket money. And close all embassies and leave just the necessary to deal with Russian citizens in the US. Or move the UN.
And thick as a brick Psaki says: “We will be direct, we will speak out on areas where we have concerns, and as the president said last night, certainly the Russians will be held accountable for the actions that they have taken. We’ll have more on that soon.”
I mean, pluralistic ignorance, the Saker says. Those are smart words for abject idiocy. One cannot negotiate with idiots.
Maria Zakharova today:
17 March 202120:09
Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova
Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov has been summoned to Moscow for consultations in order to analyse what needs to be done in the context of relations with the United States.
The new US administration took office about two months ago and the symbolic 100-day mark is not too far away, which is a good occasion for trying to appraise what Joe Biden’s team has managed to do and where it was not very successful. The most important thing for us is to identify ways of rectifying Russia-US relations, which have been going through hard times as Washington has, as a matter of fact, brought them to a blind alley. We are interested in preventing an irreversible deterioration in relations, if the Americans become aware of the risks associated with this.
This is what we will talk about during the consultations that the Foreign Ministry and other relevant agencies will hold with the Russian Ambassador to the United States.
US presidents did not speak like that about Stalin or Mao, or Pinochet or Franco.
Because they weren’t demented Alzheimer riddled idiots. The US has been scraping the bottom of the barrel for decades when it comes to Presidents, when was the last half decent one, Ike?
Now about that State of The Union speech…..
Dementia is an illness just like any other illness other than that it affects the brain. Calling them idiots is unfair since they, at a certain stage, have no idea that they have dementia. Biden is surrounded by criminals who are using a sick man for their criminal agenda.
Maybe American leadership is hoping that we the people will fail to notice that they have thoroughly destroyed our economy when those of us left after the nuclear exchange are freezing in the rubble of our homes during a truly anthropogenic climate change known as nuclear winter. There also will be no worries about questions of ownership, acquisition of food, medicine or political power as the well-armed oligarchy ensconced in their bunkers with their mercenary armies will simply take everything not vaporised and leave you to die and rot on the frozen and nuclear-contaminated formerly fruited plain. It will be a glorious and divinely-inspired “reset.”
V..Putin said the exact right words: “I wish him good health” – and with those words alone, he was spot-on: Diplomatic but pointing out clearly what is obvious to everybody….
I have been watching this for a long time, as have many other people of course, and I (and many others) have determined that the United States – or more specifically the “Constitutional Republic of the United States of America”, has been targeted for destruction – financially, morally, ethnically, and quite possibly militarily.
Every man and his dog can see that Biden is a mentally unsound old man who should have retired decades ago and who is clearly not in charge of his own wardrobe much less the American empire.
It is now very clear that the “Constitutional Republic” is being dismantled and replaced with a World Economic Forum (WEF) style “Socialist Democracy” – the worst aspects of Communism and Fascisism, mixed with Technocracy – where there are only two classes – slave like ‘workers’, and ‘Technocratic controllers’ (currently known as the Billionaire Globalists).
The United States will be dismantled carefully and then in true Masonic and Occultist style rebuilt ‘stone by stone’, or in WEF terms – “Reset” and “Built Back Better”.
It is quite possible that the puppet masters behind the Biden Administration paln to start a major war (likely with Iran, but quite possibly with Russia if they can ensure ICBMs dont get use dby either side) in order to impose Martial Law in the States and cover for the collapse of the PetroDollar and soon to arrive Hyperinflation – and of course expediate the demise of the US Constitution.
There was an excellent comment left a few days ago by someone called ‘Old Doomer’ which I will copy and paste as it explains better than I can what is currently going on and the likely hood we are headed into a big war soon (I too belive it will be between the US + Israel and Iran, but could be with Russia / both):
“As global economies begin to collapse and the petro-dollar is no more, the rich west are going after real resources around the planet.
Real resources have never been more important to secure if currently powerful nations are to remain so after “The Great Reset” – and if hyperinflating currencies such as the US can pay for a war machine to secure vast lands from Venezuela to Iraq, then you can be assured they will print whatever they can in worthless paper to secure real wealth and resources before the coming economic collapse and “Great Reset” (see the World Economic Forum for details of this).
Energy (Oil, Gas, Coal, Uranium), Commodities (especially rare minerals and metals, plus timber), Fresh Water, and Food – especially fertile lands (such as those in Ukraine), and fertile fishing waters (such as those around the Pacific and the North Atlantic), are what is important now.
It is a mad rush to grab (or “secure” in American and English newspeak) what can be taken whilst the great machines and engines of war can still be paid for in fiat-currency.
Rich and powerful resource rich nations such as North America and Russia will, and are, having their claims, ownership, rights, and even sovereignty contested as the globe is sliced up into so called “spheres of influence” and more powerful nations prey upon the weak (such as Turkey in Syria, the US in Iraq, and the EU in eastern Europe, especially in bread basket Ukraine).
Once the Petro-Dollar fails completely and the US Dollar looses its value (along with all those currencies pegged to it or exchange rate referenced to it), it will be “boots on the ground” that “secure” the resources.
Another “urgency” is that regional rivalries will need to be settled one way or the other, and with such bad blood between the EU and Russia, between Israel and Iran, and between China and the US (even ignoring India and Pakistan, North and South Korea, and other ‘cold’ conflicts) it is unlikely that the settlements will be entirely peaceful.
As the US collapses internally, economically, and militarily, It is very unlikely that Israel will except Iran as a peer in military terms (which would prevent the Greater Israel dream), so they are likely to provoke some form of conflict whilst they no the US has their back should they miscalculate and end up looking at defeat.
Same with the EU. It is unlikely that the EU (and especially the rabid UK) will allow Russia to expand influence into Western Europe, but without the US might they could not prevent it. They are also likely to provoke something with Russia prior to the collapse of the US – most likely an incident involving Kaliningrad as opposed to Ukraine (although the British have fought over Crimea before and have shown a recent interest in that area).
China have made no secret that have designs upon North America, and have great influence in Canada, and if certain theories are to be believed they now have the current US President in their pocket (the Hunter Biden laptop videos and photographs even without the documents are very incriminating in this regard).”
I agree with almost all of the above comment, however I differ only in that the current masters of the US have no intention of winning the next war – they will loose it sufficiently to allow for the reshaping (build back better) of the rump US after a surrender and global “Great Reset” – with a new global currency to replace the reserve Dollar, and a new global Government / government to ensure another big war can never happen again (also part of UN and WEF long standing plans).
Blaming a senile old man for starting a war which ended the US as a Constitutional Republic seems like a plan to me.
It seems to me than America needs to be destroyed and Russia weakened as Russia will be useful for the China silk road. America stands in the way of the new world order as the citizens have guns but are being taken out by the vaccine for the pandemic. I think it was in 2004 that a retiring Chinese Chi Haotian, minister of National Defense of China claimed this very fact.
Top military brass in US are worried over other issues than protecting the nation from military invasion. They seem to believe they are unbeatable.
In a socialist democracy you can expect free medical care and a place to live. Its unlikely that these things are planned for America.
Stephy is an actor playing his part and reading his scripted lines, as is Demented Joe, reading his scripted answers. The Russian legislator is right. Biden’s handlers’ tantrum is a pathetic example of magical thinking used as a means of psychological protection against powerlessness.
To where is Uncle Samuel going to run, again, after damage is done. Are there enough private jets to Argentina?
Maybe it’s time for something with global influence to flood networks outside Shmuels networks on the 20th anniversary of a real holocaust.
@Anonymouse: “the 20th anniversary of a real holocaust.”
Do you mean 11th Sept 2021? To commemorate the burning alive of 3,000 U$ citizens by a demented predecessor of the present demented POTU$.
Just to remind you that for a long time the people reader V.V. Putin knows very well with whom he is actually dealing regarding ‘Presidents’:
You can read Lavrov and V.V Putin as well perfectly well. Definitly the little sandwich he eates is of infinite more importance to him, than the ridicolous gibberish from Obomba, probably he will treat the local Hotel clerk with more respect.
So there is nothing new, beside the fact that the situation in the Empire of Doom & Gloom has dramatically further worsend and total collapse is imminent. The more sane Federal States are rowing clear of the disaster as fast they possibly can.
Putin, being the very cool cucumber that he is, gave Biden a very “Zen” (and I say this as a long time Zen practitioner) response.
He could have accurately responded, ‘you’re a f*cling a??hole, and dumb as a box of rocks.’
Or Jimmy Moglia might have responded with just the right Shakespearean insult.
But Putin’s no sequitur reply fit the occasion. You simply don’t take insults from people like Biden personally.
If it had been me, I would have said, “Joe, you’re engaging in psychological projection, now run along back to your Armed Madhouse.”
This guy was bad news the first day I saw him under Billy Clinton, he thought his best choice was to anchor news, but he just as bad at that as he was working under Billy.
Not being book smart has its drawbacks, and Georges closet is full of them.
Its important for all of us to remember that the error in the US’ deep state’s strategic thinking is it think they can just pick up where they left off (before Trump)
The world is a different place to 2016 – countries have developed their economies even more, regional agreements have been signed, any good will / trust that other nations around the world had for the US has dissipated, esp. S-E Asia, but even Asia’s western peninsula, i.e. Europe, have been left wondering
Having observed US foreign policy for decades, I strongly suspect that the US is well past its expiry date – and Biden has been parachuted into position to finish the job
US Federal Debt: Total Public Debt

Its still apparent to me that we’re looking at US dissolution by 2025.
See for yourself the latest salvo in secession movements – brief I/view on FOX News vid: https://soj51.org/

“Looked in your eyes and I don’t think you have a soul.”
I recall that statement being attributed to Killary several years ago. The supposed rejoinder of Putin was “I may not not have a soul, but at least I have a brain.” We can say about Biden that he is fulfilling all the promise of his youth, as Joe the Plagiarist has now graduated to appropriating other people’s memories; good thing too, since he can’t even remember who his wife is… is she his wife or his sister? Not that it matters much since incest doesn’t seem to be a taboo in that family…
Recalling an ambassador is the last step a country takes before breaking diplomatic relations, if I remember correctly. It’s putting the other country on notice that any more nonsense and we’re done. It’s a very serious diplomatic step. Given their response so far, the Biden administration seems to have a devil may care attitude about the move.
Dire days indeed.
Dehumanizing the ennemy is a key factor to justify any move against him. History tells us it’s used to justify war.
It’s simple Putin has no soul and he is a killer. As a consequence Russia is a rogue state ergo we can do anything we want against Putin and against Russia as a whole.
This kind of strategy is used by a country which has decided to completely destroy its target by regime change and submission or by war.
This is not PR. PR doesn’t need to go that far. The US administration and its vassals (like UK which has decided to increase its nuclear forces by 45%) are leading all of us to a complete disaster called WW3.
One of the problems with propaganda that is based on lies like Russiagate was. Team Biden has to admit that Russia did not meddle in the 2016 elections, did not poison Skripals, did not down MH17 to have serious relations with Russia. If Team Biden did that, most of the LibDem politicians and Newspeople would be revealed as fools and liars. The rank and file US “liberal” actually does believe all this swill about Russia. The moral cowards in Team Biden are afraid to admit to their followers that they are a pack of liars and live in a delusional fantasy world.
I’ve followed Russia for 40 years and Putin since 1999. Many people have no clue as to what he or today’s Russia’s about. This meeting with Russia’s Prosecutor General’s Office Board provides an excellent look into Putin’s policies and priorities as do many of these exchanges. What he said here was also said in similar fashion to the FSB and Interior Ministry during his recent meetings with them , which you can find at the Kremlin’s website. Putin’s opening paragraph tells us a great deal:
“First of all, I would like to say that the prosecution authorities, just like all other agencies of the law enforcement system, are faced with the crucial task of protecting law and order, and, moreover, they are authorised, by virtue of their position, to make a considerable, significant contribution to Russia’s development as a law-based and community-focused democratic state.”
As opposed to an Anti-Human Neoliberal nation like the USA, Putin’s trying to establish a “community-focused democratic state” governed by the Rule of Law. And just who within Russia’s community does Putin see as his and his law enforcers highest priorities?
“During the previous board meeting, I instructed you to redouble efforts to protect the most vulnerable groups of the population. I am asking you to continue monitoring this priority sphere. I would like to point out that in 2020 there was an increase in the number of violations exposed and, most importantly, remedied concerning the rights of disabled persons and pensioners. The statistics indicate that problems remain in this sphere.
“Your task is to ensure, together with other government agencies, the unconditional fulfilment of social guarantees, so that our senior citizens and people with disabilities can receive promptly and without any ordeals what is due to them, including social benefits, free medication and access to medical services and convalescent care facilities.
“And of course, matters such as support for large families, low-income families, orphans and single mothers should remain under close review. We must immediately respond to unlawful non-payment of benefits, compensations or other types of material support that people are entitled to.”
And he said the same to the other security agencies. Defend and honor our elders, the disabled, help the young and their parents find their way. Protect them and ensure they receive what they’re entitled to get. And so forth. For further elaboration, read this other very revealing exchange.
Putin’s Russia and their allies are in the vanguard of what we’re terming the Pro-Human nations as opposed to those that are Anti-Human Neoliberal nations which are led by the Outlaw US Empire. What the latter does as policy is revealed by the bottommost chart at the link, which is surrounded by two very important paragraphs:
“The politically incorrect term for consumer price inflation, which is what CPI tracks, is “loss of purchasing power of the consumer dollar,” and thereby the loss of purchasing power of labor denominated in dollars. And the purchasing power of the consumer dollar has dropped to a new all-time low in February, according to the BLS data today:
“And now the Fed wants the dollar to lose purchasing power even faster, and thereby the Fed wants the purchasing power of labor to decline along with it. And by the dynamics now transpiring, it looks like the Fed will get its wishes fulfilled.”
That’s the Class War described in just two sentences and is what the Outlaw US Empire thought it was going to be able to do to Russia but got foiled by Yeltsin’s dying patriotic effort to redeem himself. Putin knows that and much more. I trust him to make the proper policy call in response to Biden’s idiocy, but I have no idea what option he’ll choose.
If the USA had a leader with half the cojones of Putin, we would be in good shape. Alas, we have not.
Being a German, I had to google Mr. Stephanopoulos. Then I realised that the whole thing is even worse than the dialogue itself reveals. Because Stephanopoulos is anything but an innocently asking journalist; he is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and served as communications director of the White House under Clinton. Which means he knew and understood fully what he did; he clearly is no diplomat, but he must know the meaning of the situation he created.
A member of the foreign policy elite goaded an imbecile into uttering a declaration of war. No accident, a planned provocation, orchestrated by the CFR.
Dagmar you are completely accurate. Stephanopolis’s questions to Biden are what shocked me! Biden has always been a puffed up, empty shell of a human who knows deep down he is not that bright. Now his feeble brain is even more reduced. Steph is a deep state actor and his questions and handling of Biden had to be done with lots of input and direction and planning.
Looks like war to me.
‘Merica is run by meat puppets possessed by demons.
Therefore battle before us is a spiritual one.
Satan’s is the voice of The Accussor.
The Deplorables are awake. Lazy tho. A bit timid still.
МЫ НЕ ВЕРИМ ВРАНЬЮ ПРО РОССИЮ.
Thanks Saker. Peace.
To state the obvious, outrage on this insanity and stupidity is off the charts.
But I am far more concerned as to the implications down the road; to my mind, this was a scripted event, biden the brain dead vegetable simply regurgitating what is being fed to him by his handlers, and Stephanopoulos, who is a scripted agent without a moral or ethical bone in his body, presenting the cue.
The question is for whom specifically and for what motive? What is the plan?
The immediate response of course are the handlers: nuland, kagan, blinken, sullivan, and prob most powerful, rice. However, I seriously doubt they are more than the handlers.
This is very concerning, as this “plan” is being developed by people who are evil beyond measure but are not stupid. As I believe it was Orlov who once remarked, the plan is working, whatever the plan is.
IMO, far above my pay grade, but it is long past time for Putin and his team to be hyper vigilant and hyper aware of this evil, internationally and domestically.
Again, stating the obvious, he has an excellent team but working with “our partners” I do not believe is the prudent course-the gloves on the Russian fist should be off. And the domestic bull sheeet of navalny et al seems to have properly reached its end.
“Consultations . . . prospects of the future relationship with Washington.”
The decision by the Kremlin and the FM has been decided.
The only warm relations exist between NASA and Roscosmos.
All other aspects of diplomacy, commerce, trade, investment, spheres of influence, military conflicts, nuclear weapons, balance of terror (MAD) and cyber hacking are zones of white noise. In simple language, dead ends.
The US wants to keep kicking sand in the face of Russia.
The Russians are not going to allow it.
Something substantial is about to change.
Do nations at war have diplomatic relations?
Russia is subject of a US hybrid war. It has taken a toll from the economic development of Russia. A clean break in relations would end much of the hybrid war.
The US is about to be invited into a Cold War it has not designed and cannot control.
Considering this is a big election year for Russia, taking strong action against the US would be very popular.
Yet, everything Russia is about to do is something already planned and part of its general strategy. Nothing of these things is surprising. No reactionism is needed. Diplomatic, political, economic, and financial responses will be. The US pushing Russia away from their financial system is simply and directly stupid. Russia is just becoming more independent, then who would care what these western guys are screaming there in the distance, behind the door that got shut in their faces. This is a slow motion cold war.
President Bush was right when he stated that President Putin has a good soul, and he was authentically trying to seek a rapprochement with Russia. Putin took his word and provided the US military assistance in Afghanistan. The problem is that members of the Bush administration and deep state were secretly funding the Chechen separatists, the discovery of which permanently ruined America’s relations with Russia and resulted in Putin’s 2007 G7 speech.
Relations have now deteriorated permanently. The question is what are the options for each team
Team USA can
1. Do more sanctions. This is guaranteed, really just a question of if NS2 gets stopped or not
2. Use Ukrainians to overwhelm the weak Russian contingent in Transnistria
3. Use Ukrainians to do a suicide attack on Donbass. The LPR/DPR forces can definitely be overwhelmed as the Ukrainian army is strong now, but Russia would intervene as they did in the Battle of Ilovaisk. This option would be used to force Russia to react and isolate it from Europe
4. Color revolutions. Maybe more aggression in Belarus, Georgia?
5. Attack Syria more aggressively. Perhaps institute a no fly zone
6. As a nuclear option, add Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, etc. to NATO. No idea what this would result in, but why not try?
1. Issue more strongly worded academic admonitions via Lavrov that no one listens to
2. Officially recognize and integrate Donbass, moving Russian regular troops into Donetsk and surrounding towns
3. Capture the aquifers surrounding Crimea and end the artificial drought
4. Move more troops, S400s, and ballistic missiles into Transnistria, as they have done in Koenigsberg
5. Potentially integrate Armenia or Belarus?
6. Increase presence in Syria, creating hardpoints in eastern Syria as America has done with Al-Tanf
Expect crisis and war developping in 4 areas, that could be the first stages of a war against Russia in Europe:
2) The greater Albania plan
3) Berg Karabach
Time frame: starting in April or May.
7. Control the Arctic. That would really hurt the (waning) hegemon.
Biden: Putin has no soul
Putin: Biden has no brain
Which is correct… the latter!
I am quietly hoping ‘The Saker’ is just another conspiracy website full to the brim with conspiracy nuts and misinformation.
If not, the world is in deep shit.
Uncle Shmuel may be brain dead, but there’s no doubt he’s got an eye on you, Saker.
Oh great, so they know the trouble they are in and still wont talk or negotiate?
There’s no train out of this dodge.
Armstrong has an important blog post up with three troubling paragraphs:
“A staffer investigating the election fraud in Georgia was killed in an accident that was a fireball and highly unusual. The prosecutor then investigating this accident was found dead shot in the head. There was just no way our model was wrong on Georgia. After the Washington Post ran the story with the fake quote, CNN, ABC News, NBC News, and USA Today all subsequently claimed that they had “confirmed” that the Washington Post’s reporting was true.
Now what is really interesting is that the phone call that was erased from Ms. Watson’s device and was recovered by officials responding to a freedom-of-information request. The quotes that were then attributed to President Trump by an anonymous source were outright lies.
Trump did not tell the investigator to ‘find the fraud’ or say she would be ‘a national hero’ if she did so. Instead, Trump simply told the investigator to audit ballots in Fulton County, stating he believed she would find ‘dishonesty’ there and that she had ‘the most important job in the country right now’.”
When those stoop this low for some agenda in the works for years you have to wonder how far will they really go for that agenda?
They’re literally murdering people who got too close to the truth now.
How low USA can go ?
It is not any more foreign relations or diplomacy .
It is simply vulgar talks .
Thank you Saker for providing your insight onto this, the latest public ‘meltdown’ of the “the Empire”.
I believe the statement of Vyacheslav Volodin, as reported in RT summarizes my initial response:
I still can’t help but feel a bit of pity for the решение недееспособным Sleepy Creepy Probably-Incontinent, Joe, as a clear victim of elder abuse.
This has nothing to directly do with Joe, he is the dangling puppet.
But who is/are the puppet masters?
Who is in the habit of pedaling outrageous, ridiculous shit, completely out-of-touch with physical reality?!
Sometimes called Neo-Cons… …
As most of you partyers at the Vineyard now know, VVP has come out and addressed this latest “(very) wet fart” by решение недееспособным Sleepy Creepy Incontinent Joe.
Of course, all his handlers are feeding him stool-softeners and industrial strength diuretics. At the same time, the massive resources of US industry (those yet not financialized and gutted by Wall St.), are busy working on super-duper discrete sanitary safety wear.
Back to VVP:
I was hoping the trend of VVP handling such inconveniences with great alacrity and grace would continue, but this latest large, wet brown streaking and dripping… mess seemed a real challenge, even for him and his team.
That hope was realized.
Addressing it as an off-hand comment, reversing it, as he did , and .
For years I visited a very wise gentleman, Canadian (to the core) of Japanese descent, a genius, former engineer, then trained in acupuncture and chiropractics. I visited him, as a healer, ostensibly as an acupuncturist/chiropractor, he had synthesized a practice drawing on both, and mechanics (engineering), and delivered holistic health through this practice, centred around the nervous system. (in actuality, he was my zen master, training me).
He told me,
Of course, getting it in the right spot, at the right time, is the tricky bit.
We see the entire de facto modis operandi of the “US administration” as delivering these assorted informational warfare bombs into the global information web, creating a reaction, which they then use to justify a so-call reaction.
It works with the majority of the unfortunately zombified domestic population.
It has worked successfully with the so-called allied (actually subjugated) western world (so-called) nation-state leadership.
But it has not worked with those pesky Ruskies! … for some strange reason…
poor old Joe, I hope that when the handlers decide he has played his part, they at least give him a humane putting-down, but judged on the trend, it is unlikely to be soft and humane… anyways, maybe just appropriate for what he has actually done.
Please note: this is already certain to get you tried, likely convicted, and utterly unemployable in any meaningful paying position, and likely charitable work as well.
Why is it already illegal?!
Making a claim that if Russia breaks diplomatic relations it would be a dangerous mistake and then comment that the US has virtually terminated it any way; so why would it be dangerous for Russia? Considering that it appears to be a a one way street with the US in control of the traffic it would be beneficial to Russia to find an alternative route to pave the way without any US involvement.
Try as I might, I do not see what purpose continued diplomatic relations between Russia and the Imperialist States of Amerikastan serves any longer. There is a hotline and there is the Internet. Use them for communications, dump the rest. One does not have diplomatic relations with one’s enemy.
It is ALL and ONLY about Greater Israel and nothing else.Putin denied them a regime change in Damas(Isis, Al Qaeda/nusra etc…) are only excuses to stay there forever if necessary(Iran is also an excuse to bomb Syria).Then the Maidan during the Winter Games, as revenge(and prepared for years by fuck the EU, the Kagan family).Crimea was the target for various reasons: to deny acces to Russian fleet to the Med, a future second Israel 2.0 Khazarists to hide if things were going too bad with the Arabs near Israel 1.0.Then followed by the MH17 to decide the EU vassals to sanction and cut all possible link between Germany and Russia(Eurasia).To deny Chinese silk roads to reach Europe.NS2 is also a pretext(more needed by Germany than by Russia).
Greater Israel, rapture and armagedon must happen at ANY cost, to welcome the ”messiah” who will reign on a new world order with Jerusalem as capital.Remaining christians and muslims(after the final apocalypse)becoming slaves of the the ‘chosen jews’,each one will receive 18 of them(see talmud).
No conspiracy here they REALLY all believe this crazy stuffs, being jews or fake Christian zionists also called ‘evangelists'(see Pence).
The ‘elites’ in the US (dems or rep),are almost coming from one these two tribes.
They pretty don’t care about US Citizenry, same in the UK and to a lesser extend in the EU(same for Brazil Bolsonaro).
They need China too much nothing will happen even if China reunify with Taiwan.
But Russia must be destroyed once and for all, whatever the price untill the last ukrop or even Nato EU soldier or civil citizen.
Most if not all of those who voted for Bidet also voted for the blood soaked child droning Nazi sponsoring headchopper supporting war criminal Barack Hussein Obama (if they were old enough to vote in 2008/12, of course). Ergo it is kind of rich for Bidet, who is a war criminal who voted for the invasion of Iraq, to call anybody a killer. Even ISIS’ executioners Jihadi John and The Bulldozer were less killers than Obama, or for that matter Bidet himself.
By the way, when Obama droned Anwar Al Awlaki in 2011, I recall Obamapologists gleefully declaring that “the president executed a traitor “. A few days later Obama droned 16 year old Aburrahman Al Awlaki and one of the monster’s spokescreatures said “he should have been more careful who his parents were” as explanation. Someone should ask Bidet about this.
In a parallel world tinged by more sanity than this current one, Biden’s dismal interview would be a reason to
retire him out to pasture. The problem the Russians have to sort out, however, is the seriousness of the deep state “committee” in using this hateful rhetoric to further their agenda. Hopefully, a strongly worded statement with a demand for clarification will be forthcoming from Moscow–forthwith.
If the Deep State backs down a bit by scheduling a mollifying interview with some other high official, then we know that Biden just got off his leash or forgot his Prozac. Otherwise, given the military harassment around Russia’s borders, this is worrisome. Does this show disarray or deliberation? And, yes, Russia is envied and deeply hated because it stands in the way of the trans humanist agenda for the planet and is seen as a potential plunder prize ( again).
dear saker, i seem to agree with you that if something happens miserable to the Jewnited States of America in the future, it is the fault of the american people for bringing a stupid leader like the senile Biden in the WH. the word statesmanship is now very rare to find even in house of congress. gone are the days when senators and congressmen are viewed with utmost respect from the world observing america. they have become instead the instigators, supporters of sanctions and undiplomatic foreign policies. i have high confidence that putin can judo out this latest personal attacks on him from the american presidential clown.
Personal statement (in French):
US-Président Biden pète les plombs
Dans un interview avec „ABC news“ du 16 mars, Biden a qualifié le Président russe Putin comme un „killer“ qui „n’a pas d’âme“. C’est un événement inouï. Pendant la guerre froide, le soi-disant téléphone rouge a été installé entre les Etat-Unis et la Russie pour pouvoir communiquer dans des situations d’urgence; ceci montrait l’existence d’un certain respect mutuel. Apparemment, c’est bien pire maintenant.
Les Etats-Unis et la Russie sont deux des cinq membres permanents du Conseil de sécurité des Nations Unies. On peut attendre de ces cinq membres un minimum de comportement responsable.
Avant, j’ai qualifié Biden comme profondément ennuyeux qui prend ses illusions sur le monde comme la réalité. Je vois maintenant que cette évaluation était trop gentille. Après seulement 55 jours en fonction, Biden montre une attitude complètement inacceptable, à côté de la plaque.
Je ne pense pas que Kamala Harris sera mieux. Mais les Etats-Unis devraient remplacer Biden par Harris s’Ils veulent garder un niveau minimal de pays civilisé.
US-President Biden goes crazy
In an interview with “ABC news” on March 16, Biden called Russian President Putin a “killer” who “has no soul.” It is an incredible event. During the Cold War, the so-called hotline was installed between the United States and Russia to be able to communicate in emergency situations; this showed the existence of a certain mutual respect. Apparently it’s a lot worse now.
The United States and Russia are two of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council. A minimum of responsible behavior can be expected from these five members.
Before, I have called Biden as deeply boring who takes his illusions about the world as reality. I now see that this assessment was too nice. After just 55 days in office, Biden is showing a completely unacceptable attitude, missing the point.
I don’t think Kamala Harris will be any better. But the United States should replace Biden with Harris if they want to keep a minimum level of civilized country.
See, the thing is the USA could be a peaceful nation if they wanted to be – they’re:
1 girt by 2 oceans, and
2 bordered by Canada & Mexico, neither of whom has the resources, much less the will, to invade & occupy
A nation that’s constantly been at war throughout its history hasn’t got the moral authority to tell people in other nations how to live!
America Has Been at War 93% of the Time – 222 out of 239 Years – Since 1776
(First published by Washington’s Blog & Global Research in Feb 2015)
They feel they do, they gave money, (then countries accepted it), and in return they get to tell you what to do in any need to do situation.
Probably how they came up with all those vaccines in such short order, you’re dealing w/ruthless and sly people.
God work in mysterious ways, but satan is rather predictable.
This is the US contemptable arrogance on full display, and this is what passes for journalism.
The fact that such presumptious questions could be so casually posed by a senior journalist, is indeed troubling.
However, what made things even worse, is that, Biden instead of deflecting them with the diplomacy that is required, chose to answer them with arrogance and bombast, as if Putin is an errant school boy to be disciplined by the US.
Russia did the right thing in immediately recalling its ambassador from the US for consultation. Russia cannot afford to let this slide and become the norm.
The questions posed and the answers given, were out of line, and disrespectful.
The US is playing with fire and we all know what invariably happens to those who do so.
ABC lost its credibility along time ago around here.
Less than 2 months in and I’m thinking, wasn’t that Trump guy a reasonable fellow.
” some tribes still living in the bronze-age”
That should be “stone age”. They have no metalwork.
One wonders who writes George Stephanopoulos’ questions.
A strong message to show the insanity of Biden words would be to select some firing ranges in Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba as target for three Avangard hypersonic warhead tests.
But Putin and Russia are too much mentally sane to do that, considering the insanity of the “Biden tribesmen”.
I find these childish tantrums of US senior politicians kind of amusing. One of the indications of how weak US-ian wannabe rulers of the world have become.
What was intended to become US century, world under total control of US elites for eternity, (end of history), turned out nothing of the sorts.
Empire is crumbling right in front of our eyes.
Russia should just calmly keep it’s course… Her diplomats should stay polite and professional, as all diplomats should be. Never wrestle with a pig …
Coming collapse of Western financial system will be quite a show to watch from a Russian perspective. Pass the popcorn.
“The West sees Putin as some kind of devil incarnate”
By “The West” you presumably mean the ruling oligarchic elite and Zionists who do indeed hate Putin for ruining their ’90’s plunder party in Russia and then having the effrontery to interfere with their dismemberment of Syria.
À peu près au même moment Soltenberg rencontrait une vingtaine de minutes le ministre canadien des forces armées….en autre pour l’aviser que ça allait brasser fort sur le front du Donbass…? Pourquoi le ministre des forces armées canadiennes? Le Canada de madame Freeland a beaucoup d’amitié pour ceux qui sont à Kiev.

At about the same time Soltenberg was meeting for about twenty minutes with the Canadian Minister of the Armed Forces… .in other words to advise him that things were going to stir hard on the Donbass front…? Why the Minister of the Canadian Armed Forces? Ms. Freeland’s Canada has a great deal of friendship with those in Kiev.
The last time Canada entered a war most of it’s soliders were held prisoner. There is no stomach in Canada for a war, anywhere, although Canada can send a few sidekicks (Ukie lovers) for window dressing. Most Canadian soldiers bow out after 5 years, full pension and a free ounce and a half of the best ‘pot’ money can buy, all on the Canadian tax payer……….because joining the Canadian Army causes PTSD.
I too ask myself what is the point of Biden using such language. As Saker says, this is unprecented in foreign relations (unless you prepare to literally start the war and kill the leader, as Gaddafi and Saddam).
“Truth” of such statements, everbody understands, is not important at all. But whatever they are meant to signify and prepare public for, is worrying indeed. Bellicose stance on steroids.
It sounds like preparing public for war. What idiocy for all normal people in USA and Russia who want to get on with their lives.
The point is why Biden said what he said. My understanding is : 1- it’s a kind of bluff. It’s dangerous but it’s a part of the hybrid war waged against Russia. 2- US officials are so arrogant that they believe they can reasonably begin and win a war against Russia (before it gets too strong). 3- the US leaders (the deep State) are a bunch of criminal and stupid persons who don’t care of their own country but are manipulated by Israel which is pushing for a nuclear war. Aziz Jaafar from Tunis🇹🇳. Au passage salutations au brillant Saker.
All of the above was my purpose in posting those two savage videos on US sanctions. It was in the hope that some US citizens may come to realize that the morality of starving and destroying large swathes of populations in many places in the world was there for all to see.
Of course some saw the videos as not acceptable which was only to be expected. Yet I have a feeling that the time has come to identify the real Satan.
Biden of course suffers dementia so he cannot be the target and I fear Kamala will merely be a standin. What is interesting is who will be Vice President.
Sentinels – a tribe whose home island in Indian Ocean is prohibited from landing by any outsiders by Indian law – are one of the only people in the world who are still almost completely free from what Saker has named Zones A and B. That’s an incredible, almost impossible accomplishment. Biden and his bloodthirst needs to be criticized harshly, but Sentinels and their like have nothing to do with that and they should be left out of this whole mess, totally and for good.
‘It takes one to know one’, was Putin’s first reaction: https://www.rbc.ru/politics/18/03/2021/60533b3c9a794772b5deba18?from=from_main_1
‘I’m not joking or being ironic’, he added.
The transcripts show clearly that the journalist made both the questions and the answers….. It is a very clumsy aggresive move.
As said in this article on the russian side it could only leads to a large support of Vladimir Poutine. So it is aimed at the atlantic peoples. Certainly linked to the next planned military actions against the Donbass’s Republics in Ukrainia. But the very weak side of this mediatic and political operation is that it exposes the senility of Biden. Senior moments. So it could backfire.
Soon all the american people will be aware that their president is unable to be in charge of the USA.
Actually, Saker, Uncle Shmuel is truly a dual citizen and is far from being brain dead. Always put into context anything that an American president says or doesn’t say. First off, he or she doesn’t really call the shots. Just as Trump was beholden to Likud and the Kosher Nostra, Biden is beholden to AIPAC and the resurgent neocons of the Obama administration. The Retrumplicans on this site always ignore that. Trump has conned them into thinking that he is an America-firster, just like he conned them into thinking he “won” the election.
Since 9/11, the only winner of any election in the USA is Israel. They have it over every US president since, that they did 9/11 and got away with it. Those 19 hijackers and Osama bin laden were only patsies while the real perps were flown back to Israel. Mossad also had its hand in the events at the US Capitol on 1/6 as well, providing the so-called bear spray to dual-citizen Julian Khater. The Israelis have been using lethal tear gas and “skunk spray” against the Palestinians for years. It’s killed dozens of Palestinian protestors in Gaza and the West Bank. Khater was arrested stepping off a plane from Tel Aviv for Pete’s sake.
This is probably why officer Brian Sicknick’s autopsy continues to remain classified. Just like with 9/11, 1/6 may have been a Mossad operation that used crazy Trumpsters as patsies instead of 19 Arabs and Osama bin Laden. Look for the FBI to hide the actual truth, just like they did with 9/11. And, don’t latch onto every word that Biden says any more than you could believe a word that uttered from Trump’s mouth.
Has anyone considered that the interview, questions asked, were a set up to expose Joe’s senility………..it worked.
Russia wants an apology:
As for drenched-in-the-blood-of innocents-Biden’s “killer” remarks, Putin has answered “it takes one to know one”.
As Stephanopolus is doing mindless interview of the advanced Stage 2 Alzheimer’s Diseased “President”, the fools in Kiev are about to start an even more foolish War on the Donbass that could trigger the End of the Ukrainian State. How will Biden react to that? Actually what will the Defsec and the Pentagon do then?
The following interview of “The Oracle of London”, Alexander Mercouris, by my friend, Regis Tremblay, reveals an exacting analysis of the Order of Battle in the Donbass and Crimea. The War could begin at any time.
On behalf of the remaining, decent-minded people in the USA I offer apology to, and entreat the pardon of, President Putin and the people of Russia.
Amen!! I offer apologies too.
I am so glad that I have never voted for Biden in Delaware as Senator, or as President!
Anathema to this fool!! May God forgive him and his lunatic handlers!
Brilliant analysis dear Saker
It’s all part of the wrestle-mania drama to educate/wakeup the America public. Biden is under duress to play the heel, or designated looser.
The United Satanists of America declares that the leader of a major power like Russia has no soul!
This is schoolboy name calling, at its pathetic best.
Hell, pimple-faced schoolboys are more dignified in their juvenile insults.
America is truly desperate and unhinged….
What is really driving this insanity?
America and its allied Western war criminal nations understand that the 500-year old system of Western imperialist dominance is increasingly being challenged by Russia, China, Iran, or even smaller nations like Venezuela, Bolivia, or North Korea.
This fact–and this fact alone–is driving them insane with impotent spittle-flecked, rug-chewing rage.
These Western War Criminals are like a rabid animal, frothing at the mouth. They cannot be reasoned with. They will have to be put down, and put down hard.
To be absolutely clear, it is the British Deep State that is behind all of what is going on. The analogy is found in Uncle Remus’ Tales, Brer Bear is America, Brer Fox is the British Deep State and Brer Rabbit is the Russia-China Double Helix . The Briar Patch is Eurasia and the Empire can’t get in.
Zelensky is stuck between the Nazis in Kiev and the Empire that is a Headless Chicken that knows in it’s Gut that it can (must) March on Moscow. This is what happens when the Politburo in Washington is being led by the Third String and the Scrubs.
Isn’t that a storm in a tea cup? I mean the past four years the medias were rocked by every Clown-Trump tweets. I cant recall a single one of those that was of any consequence or carried any relevant meaning. Are we switching from ludicrous tweets to senile babblings? The notion that Biden’s administration is preparing public opinion for war against Russia, honestly seems a bit far fetched. These people may well be psychopaths but they certainly dont want to die, and they know there’s no way they will survive a direct military attack on Russia. Nazi Germany had, by far, the most powerful economy and military. The US has no real economy to speak of, and their military is comparable to France’s at the start of WW2; bulky but outdated and demoralized. This is no base to start a true war for hegemony. I believe this interview was meant for purely domestic consumption and purposes.
The hatred of the West, and especially of the Anglo-Saxon world, towards Russia is terrible and demonic. If they could, they would wipe Russia off the face of the earth and prepare extermination and the Holocaust for the Russians
The Russians must be ready for anything from the West
Do you actually believe that Joe Biden believes the words he is uttering, regardless of his sanity (or is it senility) ?
The people who rule the US are pathological liars. Their entire political careers are based on lies. They have been lying for decades. This is all they know and they take their lies with them to the grave where the alMighty awaits their corrupted souls (yes every human has a soul LOL).
The political newcomers and less experienced might actually believe what the average American believes, but the seasoned, experienced and successful politicians know the truth. They are just so corrupt that they are not even interested in the wellbeing of their own country.
As for the dangers of this corruption, the Americans are definitely increasing the risk of intentional and/or accidental events that could spiral in to a nuclear war.
“…. the Americans are definitely increasing the risk of intentional and/or accidental events that could spiral in to a nuclear war.”
Certainly/definitely are useful beliefs in bridging doubt, and hence is regularly encouraged by opponents, in addition to the illusions of prime and sole agency -sometimes represented as “hegemony”- in interactions.
Even in passing the opponents occasionally ponder “Is our opponent as stupid as we are ?” often conflating agency, facility and stupidity in doing so.
When the “answer” is in doubt, the opponents often reframe the definition of “their opponents” to their primary opponents/target audiences – “their own” populations – since whilst making attempts of bullying, it is wise to choose your targets “judiciously”.
The not so stupid often use their efforts even more judiciously by not making attempts of bullying, as illustrated in 2014 facilitating the opponents’ emulation of “The Ancient Mariner” and their ensuing relationships with more than one albatross, facilitated by the opponents notions that “perceived lack of response” is a sign of weakness by the “other”.
In significant assay that is the purpose, target and some of the opportunities of “Samson options”.
The people who rule the US are pathological liars. Their entire political careers are based on lies. They have been lying for decades. This is all they know and they take their lies with them to the grave where the alMighty awaits their corrupted souls (yes every human has a soul LOL).
Removed – please stay on topic. Any further will go to trash. The MFC is available for off-topic conversation. Mod.
“I wonder of Stephanopoulos and the rest of them understand this? I don’t think so. There is a culture of total impunity in the USA which stems from the fact that the US never fought a war in defense of the US mainland in its history and from the fact that the USA used to be protected by two oceans and two absolutely peaceful neighbors.”
Hit and sunken. Continuing to think of themselves as the good guys and blessed by God (or the Devil), they completely lost their mind. A cold shower is what they need. Unfortunately, this will cause everyone else to suffer for their idiocy.
If I am a Russian government VIP or a Russian citizen, living at home or abroad, concerned about the US government’s increasingly threatening behavior, here is the most important question I want answered, ASAP.
Is the US politically capable of stopping the behavior it has engaged in for at least the past 30 years, especially since 9/11 and, if so, just exactly what would have to happen WITHIN the US for the US to stop its behavior?
If I am a US government VIP or a US citizen, living at home or abroad, concerned about my government’s behavior, here’s is the most important question I want answered, ASAP.

If the Russian assessment apparatus answers “no” to the first part of that question (that, essentially, the collective US government is the same as The Terminator– some thing that can’t be bargained with; can’t be reasoned with; doesn’t feel pity or remorse or fear and it absolutely will not stop, ever, until Russia is conquered!), short of outright surrender to the US, the way that Yeltsin did, just exactly WHAT must Russia do to permanently stop the US? For example, if Russia realizes that a targeted, preemptive nuclear first strike on the DC area is the one and the only act that might possibly avert an inevitable full-scale nuclear exchange in the near future, would the gentle men Mr. Putin and Mr. Lavrov order it?
If the Russian assessment apparatus answers “yes” to the first part of that question, just exactly what would it take to entice the US into stopping its behavior? What bargain or what possible “deal” could Russia make with the US, short of surrendering and handing over the keys of Moscow and all of the Russian military to the western Oligarchic Transnational Elite Collective? For example, would (could) the US and Russia sign a treaty (AKA a piece of paper) in which the US would guarantee to never attack Russia, and Russia never attack the US, if Russia somehow, some way, induces the people living eastern Ukrainian areas and Crimea to allow the Kiev forces to, for lack of a better expression, “re-take control” over the eastern areas, right up to the Russian border, and Crimea, including Sevastopol; IF the US pulls all forces, including proxies, out of all areas of Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, and promises to never invade or attack Iran? If Russia realizes that that is actually what it would take to avert certain nuclear WWIII, would the gentle men Mr. Putin and Mr. Lavrov do it?
Now to the second part of both questions — be it possible or impossible, just exactly WHAT has to happen WITHIN the US to stop the US’s gangster behavior around the world? Hint: Who has the power to order that change in behavior?
the question is posed: “For example, if Russia realizes that a targeted, preemptive nuclear first strike on the DC area is the one and the only act that might possibly avert an inevitable full-scale nuclear exchange in the near future, would the gentle men Mr. Putin and Mr. Lavrov order it?”
Putin’s answer we already know: “what use a world without Russia”
I enjoy and respect the comment Ishkabibble on March 18, 2021 · at 12:15 pm EST/EDT , thank you.
While one feels the wildly erratic and aggressive flailings of a cognitively dysfunctional (big tech dummying and perception management, trained apathy, and despair, and corruption, bought politicians by ‘special interest‘ group(s)) and physically degraded (decrepit infrastructure, hollowed-out industry) condition of the nation-state/national leadership team, is a significant risk to launch a nuclear strike, so the comparatively sane (i.e. wishing to maintain an ongoing civilization, with at least an understanding of the non-sustainability of the existing order) global actual leadership nation-states must be ready, with plans, for such an occurrence, one must at least sincerely hope that Putin and Xi understand that, in the end, everyone will lose in any significant nuclear confrontation.
I believe that their actions are consistent with this fact.
The competent actual global leadership nation administrations (Putin, Xi… and a few others) must now realize that civilian infrastructures, even infrastructures of an antagonistic nation best be preserved in confrontation, for destruction of civilian infrastructures will guarantee more trouble, which will likely bleed out to the so-called victorious nations, in a conflict.
If you’d spent the extra energy, following established protocols, and actually working with goodwill on behalf of your citizens, and within the larger global nation state community, one could say that you more-or-less have command of the physical-based reality of moral/cognitive high ground.
In such a case, and ultimately, evidence supporting and validating informational warfare claims, could be made, if such a linkage really exists between the physical-reality versus virtual reality of an internet-moderated human behavioural paradigm, into which humanity lurches.
So, if in informational warfare, actually having a better linkages between a particular virtual web to physical supporting evidence enables superior credibility (the money of informational warfare), then Rus-Chin have a fundamental strategic advantage to a somewhat psychotic, at the very most benign assessment, completely unreliable Empire-controlled propaganda/perception management agencies in the arena of informational warfare.
China has an advanced control over it’s domestic internet, thereby having already neutralized external/independent threats to its control of the message. I think it is safe to say that a similar system is being developed and gradually implemented by Russia, not exactly the same, but principally to nullify the ill effects of the Empire-controlled propaganda/perception management agencies, i.e. mega transnational silicon tech/platforms.
Such platforms, will of course be required for any country which has any chance of retaining any kind of domestic sovereignty.
Even Russia has to confront the fact that their own under 30 crowd has been actively and successfully alienated from the concept of Russia as an ongoing sovereign nation-state.
Okay… where am I going? Pulling it together:
1. I’d bet my last bitcoin that both China and Russia are full steam ahead on analyzing and developing strategies to take their informational warfare capabilities, comparative to the mentally ill empire’s efforts, to the same comparative that Russia has done with delivery vehicles, i.e. navigatable hypersonics, and ultra long range loitering delivery vehicles.
I would bet that they (Rus-Chin-Iran) are implementing systems within the empire’s platform(s), which will completely delegitimize the leadership of the Empire drone states — easily — because they are so vulnerable!!!
I mean it’s not like the ship of fools corrupted systems, trained neurotics in control, of the Empire is doing a great job of not sinking itself, it’s all about ‘nudging‘ here and there in the soft spots, and maintain the cognitive/moral high ground (credibility).
… so if you are Putin/Xi… what are you up to?!
This is like many things happening in the West (trillion dollar deficits, mass injections of experimental drugs, “thug diplomacy,” relentless doublespeak, etc.) these days.
I keep asking myself, “how can one make any sense of this?”
Putin replies to Biden’s insinuation that he’s a ‘killer’: Says US President is talking about himself but ‘I wish him good health’
as usual VVPutin is cool! it is probably his own interpretation of the bible’s “if someone throws a stone at you, reciprocate with a loaf of bread”..
i am watching until the demented clown biden will totally lose his mind and start sending a minuteman iii to russia to make his senile point. next time vvp will launch his hypersonics and not tons of wheat to the US mainland.
Was this remark planned ahead of time or was it spontaneous? It is another U.S. diplomatic own-goal that does nothing except expose U.S. inability to interact properly with other countries. I wonder what the rest of the world thinks about an author of the Iraq war calling Mr. Putin a “killer”? Putin is very popular in Russia. Does Biden realize that by insulting him he is personally insulting millions of Russians?
Really, though, the West has been directing insults at Russia for years. The balance of power, though, has fundamentally changed while all this hot air has been blowing on Russia. They are now pushing back against this abuse, which is not hard to do given the hypocrisy. How quickly is the gerontocracy in Washington going to realize there is now a price for their clumsy abuse and they should be more careful?
Was this a prerecorded interview, edited, then broadcast for propaganda purposes?
Good question! I also want to know if this was a live show where Biden made one of his stupid gaffes or was this interview pre-recorded and unedited prior to release, where people were fully aware of the offence it would cause?
“We understand eachother”.
That is a typical Putin response, meaning only someone without a soul (devil or Biden) would know if the other has a soul or not.
Apparently, this retort–if it is true–went completely over the head of most Americans including Biden, Stephanapolus, or the American media and ruling class in general.
Since there was something lost in translation, let me translate Putin’s alleged comment into Amurican: “It takes one to know one.”
“Since there was something lost in translation, let me translate Putin’s alleged comment into Amurican: “It takes one to know one.””
That has already been posited as a misrepresentation by several media.
Hence your “translation” is rendered at best an “interpretation” in emulation of several media, illustrating your assertion suitably modified that “Apparently, this retort–if it is true–went completely over the head of most Americans “.and some of their would seek to be attendant premasticators.
