Putin’s Revenge

Posted by DanielS on Thursday, 02 November 2017 01:00.

“The Collapse of the Soviet Union Was the Greatest Geo-Political Catastrophe of the Century” - Vladimir Putin

Last Day of The Soviet Union. Now subtitled by RT, “Stabbing The Empire”, it provides further background - telling the story of the Bialowieza Accords that dissolved The Soviet Union.

On December 8th, 1991, the three leaders of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus signed the document which marked the end of the Soviet empire. The fate of the great conglomerate country was decided in less than 24 hours. It happened in secret in a remote residence in the Belavezha forest. Soon the agreement entered the history as the Belavezha Accords. Visit the place where it happened and reveal the mysterious details of the document with the eyewitnesses to the historic event only on RT.

The New York Times announced on Monday:

The internet search giant [Google] also confirmed earlier reports that the Internet Research Agency [a Kremlin-linked hasbara outfit] had purchased search and display ads from it. Google said the group had bought $4,700 in ads…

How could poor Hillary, with only $1.2 billion and a virtual monopoly on the fervent support of the press lords—both American (such as Jeff Bezos of The Washington Post) and un-American (such as Carlos Slim of The New York Times)—hope to compete with Moscow’s marketing might?

Posted by Empire an organizing Russian idea on Wed, 08 Nov 2017 02:18 | #

(((Julia Ioffe))): Russians are like Americans and they are more like Americans than Americans want to admit: they need an organizing principle and a motivating idea and an ideology to feel that their lives make sense; and for most of Russian history whether it has been under the Czars or under Putin or under the Soviet general secretaries, it has been EMPIRE.

And it’s not a coincidence that after Vladimir Putin came back for his third term in 2012 that the word empire made a big resurgence in the media and in conversations that I had with Russians they would say, at least we live in an empire; and I would say, “do you get more milk, do get more bread because you live in an empire?”, but they spiritually need it and they’re willing to take an economic hit for it.

So when you have deputy prime minister Rogozin, who is in charge of the space program, say, “Russians will tighten their belt for a great cause and next we are going to colonize the moon”, he has a point - Russians are willing to take ...no one knows where the bottom is with Russians but they are willing, especially when the decline is slow and not precipitous, they are willing to take a hit economically for a larger idea.

Ioffe and Kasparov at MIT discuss Putin and Trump.


Putin needs a story of a besieged mother Russia and her enemies to keep power. ...and he’s good at creating enemies.

His propaganda is worse than Soviet era in a way, because he offers no utopian future, he is a cynic and doesn’t care.

I hate hearing this analogy that Putin is a chess player and others are playing checkers.

Putin is not a chess player. He is a poker player. In chess you can see your opponent’s resources. Whereas in poker you can win with a weak hand because your opponent can’t see your hand and you can bluff. Putin is coming from a KGB agent background, so he’s good at that. He needs to create chaos and to seem strong against the most powerful opponents.

“Aspen Institute”: Panel discusses Active Measures

The Alt-Right is discussed in minute 14:45:

Evelyn Farkas: Former Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia: 14:45: It drives me crazy when Former Director Comey says that the Russians are coming back. To your point, they never left. I mean they’re still here, they have all that information, they’re in our cyber- and in our information-sphere.

Ned Price: And its broader than just Wikileaks and the overt or semi overt organs of the Russian government. I think one thing we noticed even after the election; you take the sort of trending story in Alt-Right or so-called Alt-Right circles: [example] hashtag #Syriahoax started in Russia and somehow make their way to the United States and started trending in some of the same circles that are collectively known as the Alt-Right. And I think the linkage between the two is not something we fully understand; how something jumps across he Atlantic like that and tends to land with the same group of people after originating in pro-Russia circles.

Now we need a non-Jewish panel discussing Israeli and Jewish influence over the American electorate - lol.

..in fact, there are some questions toward the end that bear upon that -

Charlie D. from Duke Law: 52:00: Would it help if we broadened the discussion about all foreign nations who are trying to influence our campaigns?

Panel averts the question -

Ned Price: 52:19: I would start with the proposition that it’s natural for governments to have policy preferences. Clearly I would suspect lots of the NATO member countries were made uncomfortable listening to Donald Trump during the campaign speak of NATO being obsolete. I think that the issue is that in today’s environment there has been attempt at criminalization on policy preferences on the part of foreign capitals. But I think we have to remember is a far cry from a NATO country, you know, privately rooting for Hillary Clinton and a strategic adversary getting involved in our election with Active Measures, covert influence, social media, you name it.

Julia Ioffe: They weren’t probing and scanning our election infrastructure, yeah.

Audience Member: Have any of you considered the business role of the president and Russia; because he has, right now, no one will lend him money in New York City, no one will do business with him in New York City. He owes a great deal of money. Where does he get the money? There are a lot of rumors that he gets it from Russia. Have any of your explored any of that?

Panel Answers: 53:48: Both of his sons said that he (Trump) gets most of his money from them (Russia) ...and its not a crazy proposition either that if he’s doing real estate in New York and Florida and guess where (((Russians))) who want to park their money outside of Russia, guess where they want to buy real estate? - (((New York and Florida))).

Anne Applebaum is certainly Jewish, so you can be on guard that she will be too liberal and not raise the J.Q., but there is probably a good deal of truth in this assessment of Putin in her talk, Putinism: The Ideology (Youtube, 2013). It is worth taking into consideration.

...e.g., 4:00: “back when he was still prime minister during the Presidency of Boris Yeltsin ...(Putin) made a visit to the lubyanka in Moscow ...on a day still celebrated by some as Chekist day ...on that day, Putin solemnly unveiled a plaque in memory of Yuri Andropov. Nor was this an accidental gesture. Later as President, Putin ordered another plaque on the the place where Andropov lived and a statue of him in a St. Petersburg suburb.  ..Andropov was the longest serving director of the KGB, from 1967 to 1982, when he briefly became Head General Secretary of the Communist Party. He had a very straight forward theory of governance.

Having been the Russian ambassador to Budapest in 1956, Andropov understood very precisely the danger that democrats and other free thinking and self organizing groups could pose to totalitarian regimes.

He also understood like everyone else in the KGB that the Soviet economy was lagging far behind the west. At the time of his death, he’d come to the conclusion that something had to be done about this. The conclusion was that order and discipline, as enforced by the methods of the KGB, and that included the fight against alcoholism, laziness and corruption, coupled with the use of carefully targeted violence against dissidents and other representatives of potentially disruptive small groups, would restore the sagging fortunes of the Soviet economy.

Putin not only came of age in Andropov’s KGB, an organization that he first tried to join by his own account at the age of fifteen, but he shared some life experiences, with the man who later became one of his heroes. As ambassador to Budapest, Andropov had been shocked when young Hungarians first called for democracy, and then protested against the communist establishment; and then took up arms against the regime; and not coincidentally, lynched several secret policemen.

Putin had a similar experience in Dresden [as described in accounts above, a transformative vertigo where suddenly he was alone upholding the Soviet mantle - getting no reply from Moscow during the fall of the Soviet union; this inspired him to take control and resurrect Soviet style dictatorship through himself.]

9:00: At the most fundamental level, Putin and the people around him believe deeply that the rulers of the Russian state must exert careful control over the life of the nation.


13:00 I am not very originally calling it Putinism, the ideology. Although there aren’t tomes and tomes written about it they way they were with Marxism, this is a carefully worked-out system, with carefully designed institutions. It’s deliberately taught to Russian children. It’s promulgated to the voting public. It’s propagated in the media. Putinism is the basis for Russian foreign policy. And it comes complete with an interpretation of the past, and predictions for the future. It even has a sensible goal, which proposes to make Russia strong and feared again. And it promises (this is for insiders) to protect the power and the wealth of Russia’s ruling class.


24:15: “There’s no doubt about the fact that Russia’s carefully managed ‘democracy’ is fueled, funded and supported by a carefully managed economy. It is and it has been since 1991, a mistake to call this system capitalist, although it possess some apparently capitalist institutions, like stock markets and banks, because in fact the resemblance is superficial. In truth, Russia is not a capitalist society, it is a rent seeking oil economy, one which resembles Saudi Arabia far more than The United States or Western Europe.
