You probably didn’t know that CNN censored Putin for being just too darn sensible. Yep, it’s true. About two weeks ago, Putin gave the network an exclusive 30-minute interview. And you know what happened? Nothing. It was never allowed to air. CNN doesn’t know it yet, but that decision might have cost them their Russian broadcasting rights.
Matthew Chance: But it’s been no secret either that for years you’ve been urging the West to take more seriously Russia’s concerns about international issues. For instance, about NATO’s expansion, about deployment of missile defence systems in eastern Europe. Wasn’t this conflict a way of demonstrating that in this region, it’s Russia that’s the power, not NATO and certainly not the United States?
Vladimir Putin: Of course not. What is more, we did not seek such conflicts and do not want them in the future.
That this conflict has taken place—that it broke out nevertheless—is only due to the fact that no one had heeded our concerns.
I think both you and your—our—viewers today will be interested to learn a little more about the history of relations between the peoples and ethnic groups in this regions of the world. Because people know little or nothing about it.If you think that this is unimportant, you may cut it from the program. Don’t hesitate, I wouldn’t mind
In general, Putin was able to strike an unusually sympathetic chord during the interview. It sure wasn’t anything like the grotesque interview he gave eight years ago, where he made that cruel “it sank” Kursk joke. This time around, he was level headed, reasonable and, most importantly, very convincing and believable—not what you’d expect from the evil Stalin/Hitler hybrid personality being pushed on the American public. And that worried the hell out of CNN editorial staff, enough to make them crudely censor the entire thing and hope no one noticed.
So, what parts of Putin did CNN leave on the cutting room floor?
Putin the anti-Stalinist:
Therefore, those who insist that those territories must continue to belong to Georgia are Stalinists: They defend the decision of Josef Vissarionovich Stalin. [It was Stalin who first split up Ossetia and gave the southern half to Georgia.]
Putin the caring:
For us, it is a special tragedy, because during the many years that we were living together the Georgian culture—the Georgian people being a nation of ancient culture — became, without a doubt, a part of the multinational culture of Russia….[C]onsidering the fact that almost a million, even more than a million Georgians have moved here, we have special spiritual links with that country and its people. For us, this is a special tragedy.
Putin the peaceful:
You and I are sitting here now, having a quiet conversation in the city of Sochi. Within a few hundred kilometres from here, U.S. Navy ships have approached, carrying missiles whose range is precisely several hundred kilometres. It is not our ships that have approached your shores; it’s your ships that have approached ours. So what’s our choice?
We don’t want any complications; we don’t want to quarrel with anyone; we don’t want to fight anyone. We want normal cooperation and a respectful attitude toward us and our interests. Is that too much?
Putin the conscientious businessman:
Construction of the first gas pipeline system was started during the 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, and for all those years, from the 1960s until this day, Russia has been fulfilling its contract obligations in a very consistent and reliable way, regardless of the political situation.
We never politicize economic relations, and we are quite astonished at the position of some U.S. administration officials who travel to European capitals trying to persuade the Europeans not to buy our products, natural gas for example, in a truly amazing effort to politicize the economic sphere. In fact, it’s quite pernicious. It’s true that the Europeans depend on our supplies but we too depend on whoever buys our gas. That’s interdependence; that’s precisely the guarantee of stability.http://exiledonline.com/is-cnn-getting-kicked-out-of-russia/
Though this article dates back to 2008, you can clearly see that the Zionists and Neocons were trying to engage Russia for a long time. They continued to push the envelope and as these Zionists nothing controls almost all the main news outlets can be taken at face value when it comes from the US and most European outlets. What these warmongers and money changers did not plan on is dealing with a smart man, who would not react emotionally but would think ten times, use his Judo skills and think of all the possible outcomes before reacting. This is why they despise him so much, and this is why they also hate China; both nations are throwing all the Zionists bankers out of their country. This is something the US should start implementing. Thomas Jefferson warned us about this when he said I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.
US-Israel crisis reactions: Obama official calls Netanyahu coward, chickenshit
United States Israel relations have gone downhill fast. At the beginning of the month, President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had a friendly meeting at the White House, but in four weeks, the fragile personal relationship has all collapsed. Now a crisis and break between the two countries is possible after a senior Obama Administration official resorted to school yard name-calling, where he called the Israeli prime minister “chickenshit” and a “coward” which was quoted in the Atlantic by journalist Jeffrey Goldberg in his entitled “The Crisis in U.S.-Israel Relations Is Officially Here” and published Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2014. Greenberg concluded that there is now a “full-blown crisis” between the two supposed and long-time allies
In the Goldberg article, the Obama administration senior official refused to be named, but had some explicit choice words for Netanyahu, and openly stated the animosity Obama has tried to hide throughout his presidency for his Israeli counter-part. The official revealed the Obama administration has a “red-hot anger” against Netanyahu and Israel’s government for continuing to build in the West Bank settlements and East Jerusalem, and they put the blame entirely on Israel for the peace talks collapsing. The official stated the administration thinks that everything Netanyahu does is politically motivated and meant to ensure he can be re-elected.
The senior Obama official called Netanyahu “chickenshit” based on the way he is handling the peace process, and called him a coward from threatening, but not actually launching a war with Iran. Continuing the official asserted, “The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chickenshit. The good thing about Netanyahu is that he’s scared to launch wars. The bad thing about him is that he won’t do anything to reach an accommodation with the Palestinians or with the Sunni Arab states. The only thing he’s interested in is protecting himself from political defeat. He’s not [Yitzhak] Rabin, he’s not [Ariel] Sharon, he’s certainly no [Menachem] Begin. He’s got no guts.”
Another official from the administration who spoke to Goldberg stated the US does not believe Netanyahu would ever attack Iran. The official recounted that the “Obama administration no longer believes that Netanyahu would launch a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities. It’s too late for him to do anything. Two, three years ago, this was a possibility. But ultimately he couldn’t bring himself to pull the trigger. Now it’s too late.” The official concluded; “The feeling now is that Bibi’s bluffing. He’s not Begin at Osirak.”Full Story
Finally, this lame administration does something right. Bibi is nothing but a big bully and a coward. No way in hell would he dream of attacking Iran? Main reason is that this coward knows they have 1000’s of sophisticated missiles that could land in Israel and like the US government; the Israeli government only attacks the weak and the meek. Bibi is one of the most corrupt Zionists out there. Again we want to differentiate between Zionists, regular Jews and ordinary Israeli citizens. There are many real Jews, just as there are many good Muslims and Christians (Catholics, etc.) but there are also many ignorant, stupid bloodthirsty Jews, and the same applies to Christians and Muslims. s.
From a trend perspective, the Zionist and Neo-Con trend is trading in the very extremely overbought ranges, which means that the end is not too far. A significant change is about to occur, and this change is coming about because of Putin (number one) and China.
Chinese Yuan use in global payments rises 13% from previous month to new record
For more than 40 years the dollar has served as the primary reserve currency and largest singular medium for trade in the global economy. But as the world begins to reject the dollar in light of years of devaluation and its use an economic weapon, one currency is beginning to accelerate its acceptance in direct trade, and that is the Chinese Yuan. On Oct. 29, a new report came out which announced that China’s use of the Yuan in global payments rose over 13% from the previous month to 1.72%, and is expected to rise much higher in light of a new agreement made earlier this week between themselves and Singapore to facilitate direct trade using each nation’s currencies, thus bypassing the dollar completely. In less than one year, use of the Yuan to function as a primary trade currency has risen over 72% and has lifted China from 13th in the world to now being in the top 10 where they are expected to reach a top five ranking very quickly.
The rise of the Yuan as a viable and accepted currency for global payments has been swift, with more than 23 nations implementing new currency swap lines through October of 2014. This means that the Yuan is ready to fully float as an international trade currency and has gained massive support through Hong Kong’s choosing to peg its currency to the Yuan after decades of being tied to the dollar. Europe is also quickly migrating over to the Yuan as nations in the EU vie for a larger share of China’s international banking. Britain recently became the first nation to recognize and sell a Chinese bond on the open market which will only increase the number of investors helping to grow and build the future of China’s economy. Full Story
The funeral bells start ringing, another day and another nail in the coffin of the petrodollar. We were one of the first to speak of this massive change; we also stated that this change would occur fast. In just one year, the volume of trade conducted in the Yuan has skyrocketed. Now that the entire world can see what a real bully and cry baby the US is, this pace will accelerate. All over the World now, Putin is seen as the strong man single headedly telling the Zionist Khazar bankers and Neo-cons to go to hell. The next stage will be even more stunning. Just as the dollar is now rallying to new highs, it will be plunging and putting in a series of new lows and the so-called American Recovery will seem like a very very bad nightmare. Off course from disaster comes opportunity; as inflation rears its head, precious metals and key stocks will soar. The wise and informed will be in a position to benefit handsomely from this painful stage.
: If every Chinese person of working age had a job for 40 hours a week, 50 weeks a year, those workers would only need to make $9.15 an hour for the Chinese economy to be larger than that of the U.S. How about those comparisons to the USSR? If China’s per-capita GDP were the same level as that of Russia today, China’s economy would be 20 percent larger than that of the U.S. Full Story
There Is no doubt no matter how much crap the media spews out, that China will be number one and when it achieves this milestone, it will bring about a huge sea of change.
Sweden recognises Palestinian state; Israel recalls envoy
Stockholm (AFP) – Sweden on Thursday officially recognised the state of Palestine, becoming the first EU member in western Europe to do so, prompting Israel to recall its ambassador to Stockholm.
“We are not picking sides. We’re choosing the side of the peace process,” Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstroem told reporters as she explained the controversial decision.
Just hours after the Swedish announcement, Israel said it was recalling its ambassador to Stockholm for “consultations”.
“This indeed reflects our irritation and annoyance at this unhelpful decision, which does not contribute to a return to (peace) negotiations,” Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nachshon told AFP.But Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman denounced the move, saying “relations in the Middle East are a lot more complex than the self-assembly furniture of IKEA”.
“The decision of the Swedish government to recognise a Palestinian state is a deplorable decision which only strengthens extremist elements and Palestinian rejectionism,” he said in a statement.
Sweden’s new Prime Minister Stefan Loefven, a Social Democrat, announced in his inaugural address to parliament in early October that his country, unlike most EU members, would recognise a Palestinian state. Full Story
Dude, it is about as simple as assembling furniture from IKEA; all you have to do is stop building on the property that does not belong to you and treats the Palestinians like humans instead of animals. Change is coming, what was will no longer be and what was thought impossible will suddenly become possible
