  1. What has always puzzled me about Russia is, What took them so long?

    Why didn’t Lavrov (almost uniformly, in any diplomatic conclave he attends, the only adult in the room) hold this presser five years ago? How can it be that, after all the lies and backstabbing, only now Russia denounces their “Western partners” and calls a spade a spade?

    Well, I guess I can answer my own question: they’ve played the game and bidden their time publicly, holding their tongues while frantically (and superbly) reconstituting their military so that they have the necessary defenses in place that allow them to — finally — speak so forthrightly.

    A few things came to mind when I read Lavrov’s transcript, particularly the wonderful crack about the media blackout and that Western journalists in Moscow must have a day job because they sure aren’t reporting on what Russia is saying — well this made me think of Kruschev in the UN, who had to resort to taking off his shoe, banging it on the podium, and yelling at the top of his lungs to get manage to get the attention of the Western press and so short-circuit the Mighty Wurlitzer. Plus ca change…

    The other point is that Lavrov cites both Secretary of State Kerry and Vickie Cookies “F*** the EU” Nudelmann, Assistant Secretary of State for NeoZioNaziCon Affairs, in the very same breath, subtley but clearly stating that the USSA is a forked-tongued serpent, a two-headed chimera with a puppet leader and an undersecretary who is really running the show. For Lavrov of all people to do this speaks volumes of just what Russia thinks of the State Department and indeed the US Gubmint and who really is Running the show. –And what a show it is.

  2. If Kissinger is saying whoa. Who are the maniacs that are steering the boat towards WWIV? and why? Kissinger never saw a war he didn’t like. So, this about face for Dr. Killinger is cause for serious thought.

    1. Heinz Kissinger is only playing the ‘good cop’ to Zbigniew Brzezinski’s ‘bad cop’. They both work together – for the same master – and have the same goals. Any thought that Heinz has reformed or split-ranks is wishful thinking.

      1. So, do you think what the Russians perceive as a schizm in FedGov.Inc’s leadership is a feint? Where Killinger is attempting to set them up for a greater fall?

        1. The Russians are known to be chess masters, several levels deep in their thinking. And, whatever their KGB is now called, I suspect it is the best human-source intelligence-apparatus in the world. If there were schisms, they would be the ones to know.

          Outside of their already being in bed with TPTB (non-taking-down of their ‘hostile’ Central Bank, as an example), I cannot believe that they would believe a word out of Heinz’ mouth. They might be ‘trolling’ (in a fishing sense) to see what is in the water. They know WHO Heinz represents.

          What I WOULD believe is that Putin is stalling for time. Russia is kind-of in the spot England was in at the onset of WWII. Great technology, but woefully short on production. Very few Spitfires and Hurricanes actually on the tarmac, so to speak. Thanks to the 1989 melt-down, Russia’s combat forces (particularly aircraft) have been neglected. Understandable. Now, they need to do catch-up, since they have drawn a line in the sand. (Possibly also for their financial ‘weapons’ to mature.)

          So, stretch-out-the-time until any active hostilities take place, by any means…

  3. Another of your predictions is also coming true – news articles today report about a meeting of the Pope with the Orthodox Patriarch in Cuba (of all places!) that could be signaling a reunification of those long-separated groups.

    Interesting times indeed.

  4. Joseph,

    I find your commentary on thee news pieces perceptive and correct. The press conference of Lavrov is undeniably a pivot point in Russian foreign policy.

    Nation states may not in themselves be any panacea; but reports of their death by so-called Progressives and globalists, are premature.

    There are numerous political movements gaining hold across the globe, but notably in the EU, seeking to restore and create national sovereignty.

    Lavrov has to be the current world’s most astute and diligent foreign minister. The signature difference in the stance he and Putin are taking in this accent on equal status for nation states, is that they want to accomplish it within the context of a re-architected UN.

    This will be no easy task, not least because the UNO is itself a corrupted and bloated mega organisation.

    Nevertheless, the principles of the UN Charter are ok.

    Can Russia build a coalition of nations to back its agenda and at the same time confront the continuing illegal excesses of the US administration and its bullying posture wrt the EU ?

    Time will tell. But for someone like myself brought up during the Cold War when the USSR was (rightly) demonised, it is a strange new world indeed if we can now thank Russia for global diplomatic and political leadership.

    But unless Trump is elected the next US President, then I think that Lavrov and Putin’s apparent policy direction as assessed by these documents preent by you Joseph are indeed our trump card !

  5. This particular ‘News and Views’ really had an impact for me. It was exciting because, unlike most ‘News’, it holds some hope that sanity is actually alive and well (as much as it can be in a broken world) across the ocean. This recent information (Sergei Lavrov) is worth sending around the U.S. internet community to as many friends and family as possible. Short-circuit the Western Media. asap.

    TTIP TPP TISA are transnational instruments that strip sovereignties of nation-states worldwide. The European Union is goose=stepping over and on the PIGS[Portugal, Italy, Greece , Spain] and other nation-states in a similar Fascist Transnational Rule that usurps power from the public sphere and transfers it to the private international corporations. It is not good or bad, it is ugly and unacceptable. An unaccountable, unelected governance is sinister from any HUMAN perspective.
    This is a calling out of the transnational technocratic Bullies – The Nation-States are not going to sell their people/public out, as the United States & Britain are doing like there is no tomorrow. Well, in Russia, there is going to be a bright tomorrow with sunshine. Not the neocon, neoliberal, neofascist darkness that is circling the globe under a Might Makes Right policy of unipolarism.
    I see your Corporate Chains, and raise you Nation-States’ Equality.

    About Time…

      Isn’t Kissinger one of the Rockefeller Boys.
      Russia isn’t going to repeat 1993. They know what Transnational Corporatism is. It is Grab-It-iaztion, aka massive Corporate theft & fraud.
      Keep your Clinton & Yeltsin sellouts.

      1. Robert B, eloquently said. It is funny how, even when we know the story and have heard it many times (in this case: neo-con fascist takeover, etc) it really helps, in clarifying and drilling it into our awareness, to have it repeated many times, in an eloquent manner. Thankyou for your comment.

      2. Robert, eloquently said.

        Heinrich (`Heinz’) (born Fuerth, Bavaria in 1923) (who latter adopted the name of Henry) Kissinger is now playing the ‘good cop’ to Zbigniew Brzezinski’s ‘bad cop’. They both work for the same master, and have the same goals. Any thought that Heinz has reformed or split-ranks is truly wishful thinking. I really hope that Putin is not that naive…

        Wikivoyage:
        Fürth (also Fuerth) is a city in Bavaria, Germany in the region of Franconia. It is right next to Nuremberg, so close that they are basically attached to each other. Unlike Nuremberg, the buildings in Fürth were left untouched by the war.

        (Wow, what a surprise…)

  7. Sergei Lavrov was so extraordinarily direct that I wonder if it had to do with the question of who is actually in control of government in the USA. He spoke in such a way that those not schooled in the manner of diplomatic speech would understand Russia’s positions very clearly.

    Perhaps there is no genuine coverage of Lavrov in the West because his manner of speech is like a truth serum by which one may judge the trustworthiness of his counterparts in certain Western English-speaking nations. With the BBC’s atrocious nuclear war propaganda film painting Russia as insane lunatics who would destroy England first, I think we have clear evidence of the anti-Russian narrative the elites in the City of London want the people to imbibe to drunkenness.

  8. To paraphrase Bruce Springsteen fifty seven news channels and nothing on. America to become the first Banana Empire over the World government in name only. Meanwhile our real masters behind the curtains decide whether we the ninety nine percent live or die and how we die.

    1. To make it to the 1% club all you got to have is $400,000 according to Alex Jones research. The elite are .00000…? something percent. So anytime you hear someone political talk against the 1% they are actually targeting what’s left of the middle class. Hopefully the last remaining nation states can hold off the egotistical globalist goal of world domination and continue not to play ball. As long as large, powerful independent nation states still exist the globalists will have to move much more slowly and carefully with their insane agendas. Probably the only reason they are still only in the dry run and testing phase instead of full blown implementation.
