The entire Russian government just resigned over Vladimir Putin's announced plans to change Russia's constitution to allow him another term in office. For the western media, this is more proof of Putin's neo-Stalinist ambitions... but I suspect something different entirely is in the cards...

    Putin state-of-the-nation, from The Duran

  2. Richard on January 19, 2020 at 4:19 am

    Roubles and kopecks seem to be President Putin’s present concern. He and the rest of his comrades’ need to come up with the funds to finance their portion of the belt / road thing with the Party to their east-southeast. Putin’s predecessors, having taught the early budding Party of Beijing, the finer tricks of the trade from the Red Book of Red Square to be incorporated into the Red Book of Tiananmen Square, have a lot of things in common. The rest, of course, is shushed-up secret. Makes one wonder what powers of finance Putin will delegate to his newly proposed Taxman. Or, at least, seem to be delegating to him. Besides, what’s there in a Sovietzski name change from the good-ole-days or an adjustment with subordinates, anyway? Change colors in the flag, adjust a few borders to reduce the overhead, shuffle the seats in the annual assembly room, change a few names and positions, . . prestzietzko, . . new government on TV. He allowed the west to see just what he wanted them and the Party to the east-southeast to see. It was an impressively large hall, but the decorations were no match to those of the east-southeastern hall of the Party.

    ‘Often wonder just who it is they think they’re fooling. Or, maybe, who it is they’re trying to impress.

    Damn, @Joseph! Pardon my cursing. I know you hate it. But you know me. So, there. That said, I AM IN TOTAL AGREEMENT with you vis a vis this headline, that I send a crap article to you in the middle of the night, hoping to get the topic on your radar, and….BAM! There you go! You didn’t credit MY article (thank god, it was seriously slinky. It was the topic I was head-lighting!) but here you are putting YOUR opinion UP TOP on “News and Views.”

    Back to point. I have the same impression. Like, that faction in Russia who have backed their version of Trump/USA, reach the end of their term and go “Damn! This is working? How can we extend?”

    Heck, (see? I CAN be sensitive to your sensibilities! <3) some of us feel the same way about Trump! Is he kinda "bad guy, maybe not so good, no-telling about him, YET same time, "Yeah, but he's GOOD at what he does! What can we point him toward? How good can it get? " Only to find, just 3-years in, "Well, actually, quite better than one might have assessed, given the, well, you know, obstacles, and all." Now SOME know we want to continue this for next 5-years. No! I don't want a Trump dynasty! Now is the time to be developing sharp leaders from ground-up-positioning for 2024. Just sayin'….

    PS — Unless it is JFK Jr. Alive and Revived! Then I am 100% IN! LOL! (But not SO muchso, actually. A bit of truth in that. I don't hold much hope that JFK Jr. is alive but, ifhe is, I am ON BOARD!

        Thank you Gosh. That’s where I was going. Alot to digest and once it does digest, they’re easily more plausible narratives than any given so far.

      Just tuned in.
      Interesting. Covers a lot of subject areas. After hearing a few minutes I got a sense of the show. However, just in the first thing he talked about; I found that his audience probably already knew that the primary source of admission to colleges/universities is your profile[like on Facebook], and there are companies that specialize in getting yours in tune w/algorithms etc., etc. In other words, the key word was missing: profile.
      Your internet profile that is the primary source in college admissions, in job applications, and many more arenas. It’s really no secret that algorithms are literally in the drivers’ seats these days in making “your” choices and “their” choices.[self-driving cars/trucks is a “choice” metaphor of these syndrome/systems].

      He’s still the same Jimmy I’ve heard before.
      Will listen more; looking for his take on Russia.

      • Robert Barricklow on January 17, 2020 at 12:01 pm

        If I can stomach his personality,
        that is.

    I had sent this Moon of Alabama article to Dr. Farrell, but he responded to me that he didnt see it before doing his news and views and asked me to post it here.

    Note that he points out two things that are not in the other articles and are important and dovetail into what Dr. Farrell spoke about and you consider the number of dual citizenship’s being held by a number of elected officials in Swampington, D.C.. –

    Putin also suggest stipulating the supremacy of the Russian Constitution over international norms in Russia.

    The president has also suggested complementing Russia’s Constitution with a special requirement that a candidate running for the post of head state should be a resident of Russia for no less than 25 years and have neither foreign citizenship nor an overseas residence permit, not just at the moment of the election, but never before in the past.

    • zendogbreath on January 16, 2020 at 10:13 pm

      Putin’s running his country as most would want US run. He outlawed nationalism and imprisoned some inside Russia for it. Meanwhile, he’s financed and propped up nationalists in other countries, like Alexander Dugan? And David Duke? Seems Putin’s no dummy, right?

  6. goshawks on January 16, 2020 at 3:20 pm

    (This is the disadvantage of the internet, where talk which should be chapters long is forced to be condensed into almost sound-bites. Sigh…)

    I am curious who Joseph’s PTB really are. There are minor PTB, like oligarch/mafia types. There are medium PTB, like the internal, fifth-column banksters (beholden to the international Central Bank). And then, there is the question of whether high PTBs exist, like Enlil/Enki and/or descendants (i.e., who ‘own’ the entire world and are managing the human drama). These levels would all play into how much Putin is a free-man (Fremen?) and how much only a puppet.

    The other thing is how much Putin is aging-out and wants to set up a ‘legacy’ for Russia. The zeroing of Russia’s external debt speaks to a desire not to be bankster controlled. On the other hand, over at The Saker , there has been much wonderment at Putin not throwing-out the banksters when he has had numerous chances (like immediately after he was re-elected). Aging-out may be forcing some issues to be addressed (especially if he has any love for Mother Russia and its people)…

    While the US House of Reprobates mounts a Deep State impeachment spectacle, the entire Russian government resigns. Oh, some people have all the luck!

    I see nothing more about this in the MSM beyond the initial reports and I think your analysis is pretty spot-on; it looks for all the world as if Putin is both setting himself up for the end run and is concurrently re-tuning the centers of power. As of now, it looks much like the dissolution of Parliament, giving Putin the leeway to re-balance the political landscape — and lay the groundwork for his successor.

  9. Kelly Em on January 16, 2020 at 11:56 am

    What might be going on behind the scenes is a further move to insulate Russia from the coming crock up in the western central bank Madoffia.

    The Altanticists will certainly be in the way. With Russia now having no foreign debt, a growing internal industrial and ag infrastructure could mean that the Seyss-Inquarts have no standing and they are being moved out of the way.

  10. Robert Barricklow on January 16, 2020 at 11:31 am

    Willfully does not understand is a correct assessment of news media in video format.
    NY Post? Good start.
    Russian strong man. [Stalin adjective?]
    Medvedev, neoliberal; concerned w/balance of power?
    Does he means money as The power lever?
    What government to carry out the changes?
    [so far in-sync/remember, I post as I read]
    Sounds like our early colonies government form.
    Fraudulent crap/opposition smells a rat.

    So far, so good. Putin may still be in the driver’s seat.
    Hopefully, Medvedev is out.
    If true, the western media is beside itself, in vitriol hatred, aching to spew-out!

    Oh! Putin’s paving the road for his successor,
    the Parliament?

    • Robert Barricklow on January 16, 2020 at 2:28 pm

      Pick up where left off…

      Western press doesn’t believe in their own democracy ruse, as an excuse, to invade and grabitize[using Russian slang for privatize]. They absolutely loathe any quaint nation-state asperations[like Trump]; especially, Putin’s/world’s fist post-post nation state.
      But please don’t ever have a state actually make life much better for the average citizen. Ask about the Middle East’s examples of socialized citizen’s benefits, like Libya. That’s an absolutely verbodden, social state benefits for all citizens. Why, Americans might start asking question why other states can afford this.
      Skeptics look towards themselves as prime examples of power madness, and can’t picture a true statesman. That concept is just too hard to wrap their selfish self centered mindsets around.
      Real checks and balances? Why, that’s dangerous! U.S. citizens might actually start asking question about our so-called self-government checks & balances.
      Yes, Putin fulfills that authoritarian role, that some may argue, the Russian culture desires. It certainly gets votes[IMO].
      When I hear more “Western”, I think more Wall Street control.
      Look at the CIA asset buffoon, Yeltsin; who…

      • Robert Barricklow on January 16, 2020 at 2:52 pm

        raped his own country. Yeltsin was a puppet under Western internationalist/transnationalist.
        There is a strongman culture under a strong independent nation state. Not globalized internationalist$ by any means.
        Loke the U.S.; there are international power faction$, and national power factions.
        The nationalist need a stronger Putin to continually counter the Yeltsin Wall Street/CIA deep reach into Russian economical/political power structures.
        What continually disturbs me, is the media’s control in all its manifestations and permutations. It’s wicked reach into changing cultures towards a one-size fits all. Even in Russia. Probably just as bad, as it is here. Because, the media is international in it being more privately owned; than inherently a public utility in service to keep its citizenry informed on all fronts concerning their country’s independence and quality of life. More concerned w/ the human, than replacing him or her w/a more efficient technological Human 2.O

        God forbid, another Atlantist.
        That’s bad for everyone; including the Atlantists.

    Fiercest of warfare beheld dragon head,
    repelling invasion of homestead,
    and heart fell to ground,
    when he found,
    that all his sons lay dead.

    While king broke waves on eternal shore,
    cuckold betrayal closed his door,
    and queen would not last
    with curse cast,
    in broken mirror on floor.

    God’s revengeful heart is a sacred thing,
    when making last stand as king,
    and Arthur’s dogs of war
    tore queen apart,
    so that banshees might sing.

    Fod[d]res onf[e]aldan is a brutal beast, drawing no peace, only sword.

    With respect to Putin I do not have any deep affection for, or fear of, him. I do respect him. This maneuver reminds me of political judo with a sympathetic judge and sponsor benefiting from his leadership capability–and I do not see him as the largest imminent threat to global stability. Frankly, I would prefer Putin in office as a counterweight to growing Chinese influence than someone with less historical and geopolitical experience. Putin plays chess rather than golf–and this judo maneuver does give both their Parliament and their President greater leverage in the future without eliminating the democratic process. On the balance I actually think Dr. Farrell’s analysis is worth careful consideration here. For better or worse, I am of the opinion that Trump and Putin are both needed in the immediate future right where they are until a few major geopolitical issues are resolved–the largest of which is China. It will take both the US and Russia to contain them, whereas, China seems to be the greatest global threat to global security. It’s not a perfect world, but it could be far worse with two neophyte ideologues in power in the US and Russia at the present time. To those who consider me nuts, hammer away with sound logic and clear historical examples. This opinion is flexible enough to stretch or change.

    • Robert Barricklow on January 16, 2020 at 3:00 pm

      Yes, Putin & Trump are counterweights to a huge imbalance; that would occur, should either of their stance/grip against the internationalist lose it’s tight hold on globalism’s move in that one-size-fits-all efficient form.

    • zendogbreath on January 16, 2020 at 10:05 pm

      Putin’s power has been consolidated repeatedly since forever. What are the odds that this is not a further consolidation. When he is done, it looks like it will be his choice.

      The US has a different meme running since forever. Not much ever changes and everything seems to slide the wrong way and it’s always the other guys’ fault. Every eight or so years, everyone switches sides and blame is deferred, while both sides tend the same general direction. The surface less important issues (sex, drugs) get argued. Badly if at all. The important issues (war, economics, resources) are rammed through.

      Did anyone see Trump get opposition over the new North American trade deal? Or the budget?

      • OrigensChild on January 17, 2020 at 8:30 am

        I did not. I’m watching that one carefully as it may be a watered down version of the former trade deal he killed earlier in his tenure as POTUS. Since I have not heard any details I’m not in a position to comment. I am concerned.

        • zendogbreath on January 17, 2020 at 11:45 pm

          Seeing Dershowitz added to the POTUS impeachment defense legal team is too much affirmation of my above idea. Wasn’t Dershowitz part of the Epstein legal defense team that got him such a sweetheart deal? And wasn’t he also one of those accused of ped crimes alongside Clintons et al? Kinda reminds me of when Guilliani was peddling terrist profiteering after 911 before he was selling himself as the anti-racketeering lawyer working on Barisma.
