Daily News


A couple of weeks ago, a principal leader of the Russian opposition to Mr. Putin, Mr. Boris Nemtsov, was gunned down on the streets of Moscow in Red Square, within sight of the walls of the Kremlin and of St. Basil's. Almost as quick as the story appeared, a number of commentators in the alternative media, immediately suspected that the assassination was the work, not of Mr. Putin, but rather of covert operatives of the West, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, a former member of the Reagan administration being perhaps the most well-known person registering doubts about Putin's alleged connection to the murder. But there were others, and indeed, this author himself was made aware of the assassination during our bi-weekly members' vidchat, and this was my immediate suspicion as well.

Now there has emerged a bit of evidence - if the following article be true - coming from inside of Russia itself, and this was shared by Ms. D.O., a regular reader here:

Were the props and slogans for Nemtsov's memorial march prepared before or after his death?

Now, the point here is that in Russia, they're noticing the curious appearance of professionally done posters, t-shirts, and so on, within a day or two of Mr. Nemtsov's murder. And, like any reasonable person would, they're asking questions, not so much about the murder, but how it is being spun. There's no doubt the murder was preplanned, but the appearance of such "media spin" in conjunction with the scheduled anti-Putin protests that Mr. Nemtsov was supposed to attend, raises the bar considerably, and raises the question of just what is going on.

For those who recall the Maidan "revolution" about this time last year, the pattern is suspiciously familiar, for the Kiev coup was accompanied, curiously, by the sudden appearance of posters and t-shirts and so on in numbers that could only indicate that they had been prepared long before the events themselves unfolded.  And given the now apparent fact that the West's hands are not entirely clean in the whole Ukrainian mess, the patten appears to point the finger to the West and to Washington and its non-government organizations which played such a heavy role in the instigation of the Ukrainian mess.  Clearly, in Mr. Nemtsov's case, this was a professional job, indicating some sort of intelligence background and preparation. The only question is: whose?

So what can we expect? For one thing, regardless of who is responsible for Mr. Nemtsov's murder, both sides are going to try to squeeze every last ounce of propaganda value out of it that they can. And here, I suggest (in my high octane speculation of the day) we have an opportunity to assess the reliability of the governments and media of the interests involved, and particularly, of Mr. Putin's, for if Mr. Putin and his government are not involved, they will want to be this unequivocally clear not only to the world but more importantly to the Russians themselves. And they will want to do so as quickly as possible, without sacrificing a thorough and detailed investigation.  And if the West should be involved, then similarly, Mr. Putin and his government will want to determine how, and for what purpose, and one can expect that they will play the propaganda value of such a possible discovery for all it is worth, particular in regions and countries where the West's moral capital is increasingly questioned.

The bottom line? Watch this one closely, for what Russia - and the West - say now will go a long way to determine who was behind it, and why.

See you on the flip side.



  1. I found Evgeny Fedorov s discussion of the whole “Russian Maidan” theory (as he calls it) to be well worth listening to. It’s subbed in English, but very interesting.

    But then whenever this man talks, and I find him, I tend to listen.

    He believes the murder was part of the planning for a Russian Maidan – which failed. He explains in detail how he believes it was done and why.

  2. These protest to riot to police over-reaction movements are becoming predictable and quite transparent. The old methods of Gladio are becoming almost commonplace in europe and the middle east. Predictable can also be used and there will come a time when the victims of these movements(like the legitamate government that was removed in Ukraine) may begin manipulating these overthrow attemps to their own favor.

    That’s the problem “there”. Russians have been compromised in the past, Yeltsin. So there are many “Yeltsin for Sale” signs; especially, among the transnationals class of Russian oligarchs.
    “Here”, no worries. Practically the whole political class has, is, or will be sold to? Well, that’s the problem: it just doesn’t matter to whom; it’s the price stupid.

  4. Then there is this article that questions whether it was even Nemtsov who was murdered or if it was even a murder.


    I have no idea if this is a legitimate picture from the crime scene. If it was, the clothes the man in the picture was wearing do not look like something a wealthy man on a date with a beautiful model would be wearing, not to mention the curious lack of blood from someone who was shot several times. The article also points out the victim doesn’t look near as fit as Nemtsov either.

  5. Then there’s that small issue of knocking off the Total CEO, and doing so in the Moscow airport. Now, that’s sending a message, just like the Nemtsov murder. The message is: No one is safe anywhere. We operate with impunity even in your own backyard.

  6. I guess it’s possible that Nemstov was aware of his imminent death and was willing to die as a sacrifice for his twisted ideals. Having worked frequently with a printing company at my previous job, I can safely say that printing such a large quantity of high resolution items, at a moments notice overnight would be nigh impossible. The posters of course may have been printed beforehand for the anti Putin demonstrations, but the t-shirts seem to be more of the “in memory of someone that has passed” type. I’m hoping the investigators in Russia can trace these propaganda pieces to the press used to print them, and therefore to the date they were printed. I assume this story could be a propaganda breadcrumb dropped by Putin’s investigation, signaling more crumbs to come that will parallel the evidence discovered that will ultimately lead back to the west. Ie a reversal of western propaganda using fact based truth by Russia… now that would also fit a pattern.

  7. I just wonder how much these professional hitmen were paid for this job. Human life matters nothing to our elites whether it be one or millions or billions no crime is too small or too big if it will further their depraved agenda. It happen again Sunday I could not connect to this website only through Facebook now I was able to read your Sunday post did you post this late or are the trolls at it again you didn’t even show up in my inbox.

  8. Funny. I noticed that right away. It’s just the same as with a lot of other extremely convenient-to-psychopaths murders and supposedly grassroots street protests. Neda. All the signs in English on the streets of pushbutton revolutions across the globe. They don’t really try very hard to be authentic. They just go for photogenic enough for Western audiences.
