In the run-up to the Brexit vote in 2016, immigration came to the fore as the key issue. But of course, the European Union has a policy of opening borders of all member countries.
The EU wants one continent, no separate countries—and the way to achieve that is by creating a massive flood of migrants. Destroy traditions and cultures that define countries. In the process, accept terrorism as “inevitable.” Don’t talk or write about the actual effects of immigration. That would be “hate speech.” Keep eyes and mouth shut, and march straight ahead into a future of one European continent ruled from above by the EU.
Ever since the UK vote to leave the unelected, terminally corrupt, and rotting edifice known as the European Union, stall tactics and threats have been launched at Brits.
First it was, “It’s going to take a long time to untangle the UK from the EU, it’s very complicated.” Actually, that tactic was predated by Prince Obama traveling to England to warn the population they’d stand at the back of the line in forming separate trade deals with the US, if they left the EU. It’s called interfering in the political affairs of another nation. Now it’s the EU and Queen Merkel beating the UK to the punch by plotting trade deals with India and China, in order to leave the British out in the cold.
But the basic question is, Is Britain a nation? Does it exist? It’s a question citizens are supposed to answer. Not Merkel, Obama, or the EU.
This issue, in case it’s unclear, is all about Globalism. According to that totalitarian political philosophy, of which the EU is a standard bearer, there are no nations. There are only mega-corporations and banks.
As the departed guru of the Rockefeller Trilateral Commission, Zbigniew Brzezinski, wrote in 1969, “[The] nation state as a fundamental unit of man’s organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force. International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation state.”
This is not only a political and economic statement, it’s a prescriptive piece of psychological advice: Stop thinking of yourself as a citizen of a country; you’re a global citizen; you exist and function at the pleasure of a new collaborative international order.
And the new order will triumph. Bow your heads and accept it.
Unless people get up on their hind legs and say no, which is what happened in the 2016 Brexit vote.
Defection. Decentralization. Independence.
Hideous words to the ears of Globalists.
Their basic strategy, since the end of World War 2, has been to spin a highly complex network of political and economic relationships, from one end of the world to the other—a labyrinth—from which escape is seen as virtually impossible.
Trade deals like USMCA, NAFTA, CAFTA, and GATT are only part of this system. The EU itself keeps churning out thousands of rules, regulations, and laws.
Build the maze; put national governments and populations in the maze.
Then more or less claim the planet would collapse without the maze.
Last year, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker issued a “maze statement” to President Trump after Trump rejected the Globalist Paris Climate (non-) Treaty: “Europe’s duty is to say: it’s not like that. The Americans can’t just leave the climate protection agreement. Mr. Trump believes that [he can] because he doesn’t know the details…We tried to explain that to Mr. Trump [at the G7 Summit] in Taormina [Sicily, Italy] in clear German sentences. It seems that our attempt failed, but the law is the law, and it must be obeyed. Not everything which is law and not everything in international agreements is fake news, and we have to comply with it.”
Supremely arrogant, Juncker was winging it and writing his own script, because, in fact, the US didn’t sign on to a treaty in Paris. Obama tried to unilaterally bind the US to the climate pact, when a two-third’s vote by the US Senate is actually required for such international agreements. And no Senate vote was taken.
But this is the EU’s preemptive attitude toward defection, decentralization, and independence.
In the case of Brexit, climate change wasn’t the issue. Immigration was. The EU tried its best to chastise England for daring to insist unlimited numbers of migrants might be too many. “You’re in the maze, stay in the maze.”
And there is another vector of attack being launched at England: reminders the nation is evil for its colonial practices, which can never, ever be erased. But the covert leaders in that propaganda effort, the EU and its Globalist bosses, feel entitled in their own attempt to colonize the whole planet. “Your colonizing was bad, ours is good.”
With an annual budget in the vicinity of $100 billion, the EU is intractably corrupt and incompetent. It’s estimated that $5 billion a year is stolen from that budget. As for the other $95 billion, what is it for? Nations can govern themselves. The EU could disappear tomorrow and no one would catch a cold. The entire bloated structure, employing between 30 and 50 thousand people (depending on how far the count is extended) is a vast boondoggle.
It’s astonishing that anyone in the UK would feel a sense of loyalty to the EU.
There is nothing strange about Brexit at all. It’s a natural reaction: One day, a house pet goes outside and wanders off into the woods and never comes back. Who is really surprised?
The “system” called the EU insists that terrorism is somehow a price the British people must pay for entering “a better future for all.” Don’t ask what that future looks like. Don’t think about it. The UK doesn’t have the right to set its own immigration policy.
The chaos and destruction that result from open borders are simply an “adjustment period,” after which things will settle down. A new and better England and Europe will emerge. Diversity will triumph. How? Don’t worry about that, be happy.
You see, diversity is a high-minded principle, and by definition it implies a more humane society. Therefore, there is no counter-evidence. Facts are unimportant.
However, Britain is free to set its own policy.
To do so, politically correct speech will have to be jettisoned. Facts will have to be widely expressed. Lies will have to be widely exposed.
The EU will need to be named as a driving force in immigration, and the results of migration will need to be laid at its door.
The EU sees immigrant terrorism as its ticket to greater control over Europe.
Leaving the EU means LEAVING the EU.
How long before leaving means LEAVING?
How long before the British people realize that the flood of migrants is not simply “a refugee crisis” created by the US and its allies, whose imperialist policies of Empire and wars in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa, initiate “blowback?”
How long before they see numbers of these “refugees” are just military-age young men who arrive with destruction on their minds?
How long before they see England is riddled with EU agents who are “forwarding a humane immigration policy,” come hell or high water?
One continent, under no liberty and no justice, with suffering and slavery for all.
How long before they leave THAT?

Ditto. I try to always re-post articles that border on being “politically incorrect” but are straightforward and honest.
“Thanks to the terrible power of our international banks, we have forced the Christians into wars without number. Wars have a special value for Jews, Since Christians massacre each other and make more room for us Jews. Wars are the Jews’ Harvest, The Jew banks grow fat on Christian wars. Over 100 million Christians have been swept off the face of the earth by wars and the end is not yet.”

Unfortunately, there was never a plan to leave the EU. The whole farce in the last 2 years has been Brexit without the exit. In the meantime the plan for the military unification of the EU is in the final stages and MP’s arn’t even aware of what has been happening as they focus on the nonsense of ‘deal’ or ‘no deal’.
Sadly, most people are so confused and weary of the whole charade that after kicking the can down the Brexit road for so long the second referendum will be rolled out and everyone will vote Remain in utter weariness and the original objective of the EU retained.
You cannot leave a tyranny.
Oh yes, you can leave a tyranny.
Just don’t expect the tyrant to grant you permission to leave:
Amnesiaclinic you are right.. cause confusion, people get fed up.. distraction after distraction.. Two years of nothingness.. Trapped.. by politically correct words that mean nothing.. I agree there was never a plan to leave.. nor with there be.. The united Army is on the cards.. Question everything..!!
One of the British elites mouthpieces associated with Chatham house pleaded around 2012 for Britain to be the leader of that united army.
Title~ all roads through London.
Slightly earlier the same mouthpiece wrote that if the Russians resist globalism they will be forced. That text vanished in the 2nd edition of that EU document. The idea was for the EU (apparently under British lead) to push for a grand area grossly enlarging the area under EU control eastwards and southwards.
But since then Russia have taught them a lesson, so I am not so sure they are that optimistic anymore. However the British surely would like to foment division on the continent as usual. The French said that recently but then came the riots. Coincidense? The power of the EU is an illusion. The angloamericans are still running things.
No they won’t. They will have to fight like Hell to impose a s 2nd vote and it will only fly if it is a second leave/remain vote. The scum of remainiacs seek to split the leave vote but any attempt at that will lead to open revolt and perhaps war. The polling booths will be wrecked.,
Reblogged this on amnesiaclinic and commented:
This is an old piece of yours, and should be revised. I am sure you don’t believe this, do you? Otherwise, I have woken to the fact that you are on the wrong side of evil.
The EU, is an economic zone; a military zone; a bulwark, against the empiricist desires of Vladimir Putin and his Kleptocracy. And his comrades in the BRICS nations, who wish to dominate it economically. His attempts at balkanization to frustrate and force those smaller nations to become utterly dependent on Russia. He does not wish their freedom. His outright thief of their land…even his design of pipelines, and bridges to freeze out what he wants…to subvert.
The E.U. is the strongest entity to oppose, the war like economics and expansionism of Putins Kleptocracy. The onslaught of his version of New World Democratic Socialism…wrapped up in the facade of free (sic) elections. He wants globalism, but a different kind, and he has aspirations to dominate the World Island. “And he who dominates the World Island dominates the world.”
What protects those little countries, those small republics still forming, still trying to revive themselves, and form greater economies after the rape and pillage of how many years of a KGB dominated Soviet Union?…yes they still feel the effects! This much time after the fact and, these places are being infiltrated…again by new Putin thugs, and dissidents and now by muslims head choppers. Putin is supporting terrorism.
Putin and MbS are best buddies and anyone with a brain could see that, all along; his deals with the Chechens, Dagestan, Azerbaijan — he is all for a caliphate, this bastard Putin — these wars in the middle east are about the counter-measuring this SOB, and what is the ‘What is’ propagandized as the creation of the West, is a dam lie. A very large lie…a global hoax, that America is the Great Satan.
Well I am here to tell you wake the fuck up and smell the socialism. It is in your backyard. There is a fifth column alive and doing damage with fake news, and propaganda as we speak, in the United States. You can laugh at it, and ridicule it, but the shallow thinkers are now believers in Putin. He has an image, he is like a Ken Doll, Barbies boyfriend; in judo suit; in a tank; in a half ton truck going across the illegal Crimean bridge; scuba diving to find amphoras, pre-planted before the photo-op; and all the while his fifth column denigrates the West and its leaders, and humiliates and laughs at Trump. And subverts his presidency.
The U.S. did not destroy those middle east countries, they destroyed themselves, via evil dictators and corruption; via cultish Islam headchoppers on the side of Putin and their regimes; via the violation of human rights…and Putin supported each and every one of them. And that is fact.
With his connections to terrorism through the Islamic satellites of an old Soviet Union, and close relationship with Saudi Arabia. He supports tin pot dictators like Bashar al Assad, who along with his father has ruled Syria for well on fifty years in Syria, and now has S-400’s…which can become S-500’s, and then S-600 and S-700, which are hypersonic and can be armed with small nukes.
Iran who supports terrorism fully with Russia’s support as well, give arms and oil to Assad, against the E.U. and U.S. sanctions, which prohibit it… and they want nuclear power, hell no I say… But they do want the break-up of the E.U. and eventually NATO. But first the EU.
Putin has sworn to arm America’s enemies, and is doing a good job of it. Now Russia is the #2, arms dealing nation in the world. He is arming Saudi Arabia, India, China, the list goes on and everybody whines about Trump leaving the INF — that’s because Putin has been violating that fucking treaty, selling hypersonic missile systems, and arming psychopaths. And vilating sovereign borders.
Russia and China covet Iran’s portion of the North Field/South Pars gas field, and then pretend as they are concerned with Iran’s sovereign rights? China needs energy, and Iran sweet gas can solve that allowing China to freeze the U.S. out on LNG (Liquid Natural Gas)…which it has…
There is a confrontation coming with Russia, it can’t be avoided, sooner is better than later — it should have happened a long time ago, and the bad dog is going to have to be put down, somebody better get a set of testicles soon. And put that Russian SOB in hell for the next thousand years. Russia has always been about the business of empire building, and they cannot be allowed to become strong again.
Putin is pushing ever further, each time he reaches out into the European continent or the United Kingdom. Most of what you’re talking about is his doing…he and his cronies, own companies and corporations, they own media, and newspapers and culture. They fund NGOs with plastic names and subversive aims. And all it is, is weaponized for war.
Putin’s outright thief of land in the Ukraine; in Georgia, a fifth of the land is dominated by Russian troops, he has been leaving since 2008, and still he is there, and will not leave until he is forced to …the Azov sea situation, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldavia and the Belarus, all under enormous propaganda and economic war campaigns.
Hell, his online antics have created a fifth column in the U.S. and all you bastards pulling the U.S. down because of the ‘orange man bad’ parroting of the perpetually brain-dead left, crying for a Socialism of which they have no idea what it means.
The Skripals — the Panama Papers, the list goes on, about his corruptions, even that Russian spy, Julian Assange — who had a RT show on Moscow TV; was able to get Edward Snowden out of Hong Kong to Russia; got the Podesta files, when it was Fancy Bear that found the link and stole them and give them to him; Assange never had a Russian dump of information, and the corruption is beyond anything imagined; blamed the U.S for the Panama Papers release implicating Putin and a few others: trained his GRU hackers…and betrays the West and Christianity. And aim to bring it down. Julian Assange should be executed for what he has done, he is a traitor and a spy.
The KGB and its power over the St Petersburg mob runs a totalitarian Russia. Putin will soon make a move to make himself President for life. He has been in power twenty some odd years, the last election was 2018, he will be in power till 2024.
The EU is a necessary right now Jon, a strong E.U. and a strong NATO is against the Global aspirations of Vladimir Vladimirovitch Putin, a despotic SOB that needs to be drone striked today.
Yes it is a bloated bureaucracy, but it is the only entity large enough on the continent of Europe to deal with, and tie his hands in bureaucratic red tape, ad infinitum.
Putin is the new Yury Andropov. Remember him? He was Putin’s mentor and father figure, a Stalinist that got him at early age and buggered him for life — the “butcher of Budapest”, he believed in a first strike against the U.S.
And so does Vladimir Putin.
O.K. – Russia has twice the landmass and half the population of the U.S. The economy of Texas is larger than Russia’s economy.
Invasion of Europe ? Why would they want to do such a thing ? The Russians want to build their country’s prosperity & live as an independent nation
Where in hell do you get your information, Michael^
Please take the time to read this article:
3 REASONS WHY THE GLOBALISTS HATE RUSSIA AND VLADIMIR PUTIN
Always kicking America, “America the Great Satan”, America the cause of the worlds problems, “Trump is a Russian spy” all you Putin-Bots can take a run and jump off…amazing how when you start talking truth, that the trolls and bots come out of the wood work and attack.
I take it as a good sign that I’m getting to the little prick network and his evil nonsense. I got twenty fucking russian trolls following me around all day. I’m tough gimme your worse he is still Stalin and needs a bullet.
“Always kicking america”
Wonder why, could it be because of their series of unnecessary wars causing megamillions of deaths and misery.
America has had good oportunities to become more liked but wasted them all. Instead of opting for win-win, they have chosen to perform the role of a perpetual bully. Instead of allowing freedom for others they have opted for uncessant interference and subversion, regime change etc whenever their rivals didnt comply.
What is there to admire pray tell?
Absolutely false and deceitful remainiac crap. The EU is vastly more dangerous than Putin.
That’s right, break the EU down to old Europe, small countries out there by themselves, out from under the red tape and bureacracy, easy pickins for Putin’s oligarchs…do you know how many times Putin approached Greece to bail them out — but they only had to allow Russian Navy docking there…have you been paying attention to Yemen, Eritrea…hm.
A stark knee jerk response but no intelligent rhetoric on why? Just the ad hominen, typical troll, or the the response of the Ignorant.
Putin is the most dangerous man on the planet.
Yes hopefully dangerous for the evil parasites who want to saw division and backwardness for easy looting everywhere. But dangerous only if the bear is attacked or unfairly cornered. Not dangerous in the way the Us/Uk rogue states are dangerous.
Lol..too funny. You keep wandering of the reserve. Your trying to blow smoke, hahahaha
You chekists are all alike, you are like old wind up metal robot toys of the early 60’s… wind you up till the blue steel twings, and then let you go. And watch you clang and buzz around the floor in circles. Haha
I have been told that Chekists are one step away from Bolsheviks. Is that true peter?
Maven’s on the way, and that should seriously throw a monkey wrench in the whole operation, the whole thing is up grabs. He does not want a reset, many have tried.
He is an abused child of a abused father/master; he knows the power available to him, if he can only hang on a few more years.
And so he practices on a daily basis what he would do to the world.
Now you can go ahead and sow your Anglo-American diatribe and bullshit, but I won’t waste my time, while you self destruct chekist. He is not the one, he is not even close, even though he proclaims it.
The one thing this SOB does not like, is his own paranoia and he is afraid of it, can’t tell the truth from religion — you simply push back hard — he was one of those boys that got a kick out of pulling the wings of flies. You know the type
I see the botox shots have increased, do you think he is feeling the cold hand of mortality. I hear he has a new squeeze..
How old is he now…77?
I have consistently critisised and exposed Britains role behind communism, nazism and zionism. So making me a supporter of any of that is a lie. But like the nationalist russian historian Starikov, I have no interest in joining the constant demonisation of the Soviets. The truth has no agenda although you have a hard time grasping that simple principle.
I recommend Starikovs “The liquidation of Russia, who helped the reds win the civil war?” There you will find how Starikov in no way defends the revolutionaries right to impose their experiment on the Russian people, but he wants to explain what happened unknown to those who trust the official narrative. He details how Lenin manoevered between the various limitations set up by Britain to eventually put bolshevism in power.
And shows how Britains series of deceptions liquidated the white armies.
Very revealing. Unfortunately established western historians keep spreading myths. And many guillible people dont understand that these corrupt court historians get nice book contracts for lying by omission.
Money makes the world go round…
Fearmongering using Putin’s name. Always has to be an enemy to force / push / persuade people. Never thought that who is otherwise clever and open minded enough to read Mr. Rappoport’s blog can write such nonsense, propaganda. EU is not necessary, but a plague in Europe ruining countries and its people.
I am a Hungarian living in the UK and I would have voted for Brexit if I could (we were not allowed to vote). Because of a simple reason: I’ve seen what EU and corrupt politicians did to ruin my country , misleading its people. They ruined agriculture with stupid regulations and did the same with Industry to make market for wealthier countries. Result was terrible unemployment and poverty while my country can be a winner focusing on agriculture. This was an example only to show the rotten leadership. Yesterday it happened with my country but tomorrow it can and will happen with UK, too. Why anyone would think that the ‘head’ what doesn’t care about countries, nations but globalist plans would spare the UK or any other one?
I wish for leaving the EU, no matter what. Firstly they already made us pay the price in many ways (inflation, fear mongering, etc) and will as long as we are in – to persuade people to vote again to stay. Just like they did with Ireland I think matter was the Lisbon treaty if I recall it well (kindly suggest to Jon to read after it if some ‘bullets’ would be missing) ????
With a quick and clean Brexit the price probably will be higher but won’t last forever especially if other countries would follow, this is the only way to make the EU collapse.
Putin is not an evil but a clever politician, maybe not a saint but looks loyal to his people and smart enough to stay out and safe even now when he is under constant attacks of media in UK and US, he is a benefit to his own country. I wish we had some similar for our countries, I would be far more relaxed.
What is your relationship with “the Indepedent” ?
What is your relationship with Prezi?
Are you a Russian that lived in Latvia or Hungary?
Do you run a troll farm in England.
Hungarians have not known freedom, the Soviets made sure of that way back in stone age.
Why did you hack my phone?
@Michael Burns… uhh brainwashed much? You sir are the perfect mouthpiece for serving the globalist agenda. Nice job regurgitating MSM propaganda, reinforcing Western imperialism and perpetuating your own demise along with the great unwashed sheeple of the world.
Question #1, has Russia or the Soviet Union ever invaded another country, having imperialist aspirations? Has China?
Question #2, has there ever been a time when the collective West, US, EU and their lackey supporters ever been at peace? It’s been non stop war with EVERYONE since Roman times. Hell, the US of A was founded by war and has bases nearly all over the world, control world economies, oil thru petro$, Forex fix, and manipulating commodity exchanges.
Whatever nation doesn’t go along to get along will experience harsh sanctions and fines. Even face illegal arrest of a sovereign nation’s citizen, ie China b/c don’t happen to abide by US’ corrupt trade policies.
Check out Lada Ray’s work, the West is collapsing under it’s own karmic weight. It’s a great time to wake up and drop the Matrix!
What will they name the North American equivalent of the EU? Maybe an acronym of peaceful benevolent corporations who love us so much?
Forward…to the glorious man made Tower of Babel and you serfs will like it. Yes we can!
Excellent report as usual. The hypocrisy of the EU is understandable when world banks and corporations back the elite intellectuals. Met a couple fellows from EU at dinner on a QM2 transatlantic. Fine guys, but certainly not the whiz kids you would expect. As usual, it’s not the mid-level workers, but the scum at the top we have to fear.
Wrongthink is thoughtcrime:
The City of London is the place to look. As well as the British intellectual elites, who have been masterminding most of the things that are wrong with the world.
The British offshore-empire consisting in a criminal network of financial power sabotaging the economy of a host of other countries.
Freemasonic networks have always been an instrument for this financial empire and they rule over the EU through infiltration of the power structure everywhere. Globalism and the elimination of nations has been the masonic aim from the beginning. This because their origin lies in the Templars financial empire and they had to go underground to survive.
And the city of London is Templars territory.
The aim of freemasonry is all about politics.
One absurd aspect of masonic power is that american lawyers are swearing lojalty to the crown, which doesnt mean any monarch but in practical terms the masons.
So even though the British population is victimised, (and partly because their elites want to hold the commonwealth in a firm grip), the real culprits are Britains own elites. Simply because Britains agenda for a long time has consisted in being the parasite and the organiser of division among the rivals.
In order to overcome the lack of democracy, expose the high freemasons and their infiltration of the powerstructure. Secret societies are a big deal!! Open it up for scrutiny.
Jon is way too oportunistic in leaving out the reality, it wasnt just the Us, which invented the drama leading to the current era. British agents of influence were the masterminds during the whole 19th century.
Zionism, nazism, the communist revolutions, radical reactionary islam, the encouragement of the neocons to colonise Iraq etc, all of that was made in Britain.
Your a liar…and a troll. Your dragging an agenda of hatred of the west.
I wouldnt need to lie for that but unlike you who is really spewing hatred, I am worried about the real danger the evil angloamerican empire is dragging us into. So out of selfpreservation (meaning in the interest of the selfpreservation of the european prople) I am struggling against trolls like you.
Sorry about misspelling people. Selfpreservation of the european people(s)
Find out who are all the globalists baster and just get rid of them. It should not be that hard, they are few and we are legion.
“How long before leaving means LEAVING??”
We’re trying! You’ve got to wonder what’s causing the holdup, 900 days after we decided to leave. Maybe it was just too complex all along? Or, maybe something else is throwing a stick in the wheel…
Outstanding article Jon !
This will be passed on to others, because the strategy & tactics used against the people in the individual nations of Europe are being used against Americans and everyone around the world.
The saker is Russian mis/disinformation and a Putin apologist!
Who are the Russians?
The people, the country? Or the kleptocracy, and KGB, FSB, GRU that runs that nation. The largest criminal organization on the planet.
Russia right now is the largest criminal organization on the planet, with Putin and roughly 100 billionaire oligarchs running it.
The Russian government (sic) owns everything in the country…and you talk about Texas. Texas is about $1.6 Trillion, Russia is 6th in the world just slightly behind and growing past Germany — the largest economy in Europe — that’s $4.1 Trillion in 2018, up from last year. It has become recently the second largest arms dealer in the world and that is growing very, very quickly, as it is sworn to “arm Americas enemies”.
Russia is a fast growing economy as it has seen growth nine straight years up until 2008. Oil price has lessened the growth since then, but it remains. A like perk in oil price, and away it go again… It sits on the largest oil and gas reserves on the planet, and here we are heading into a possible Maunder minimum. Very cold winters and a cooling climate. GDP has doubled since Yeltsin. Russia and China signed a $400 Billion gas deal in 2014, he will supply China for the next thirty years. and he is signing other long-term energy deals…but foreign investment in Russia, well ask Browder and Magnitsky, and Mikhail Khordorkovsky. It is gangland, and impossible.
Vladimir Putin is an old cold warrior, paranoid, bitter at the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the success of the West to win the Cold war, of which he has a deep hatred and would like to see its economy fail and collapse into destruction. Russia is de-dollarizing and encouraging other nations to follow, and throws money at that process…
The first thing he did when he entered office was shut down the media, and then took them over — just walked in and took over. He has assassinated or driven out of the country anybody of competent revelry or opposition to his paranoid power.
The loss of the satellites of the old Soviet Union has laid heavy on him and he wishes them back as lost Russian lands. He thinks himself a Peter the great.
I will use the Azov sea to inform you of his means, he is a clever fellow…now remember, he has $Billions at his disposal, and Russia has paid its debs off long ago.
In 2003 a bilateral agreement between both the Ukraine and Russia, agreed that the Azov sea was jointly the internal waters of both countries and so they signed a deal and agreed to share it…fairly.
Russian stole the Crimea, and used it as an economic pawn to pull the Ukraine apart, Putin built a bridge illegally over the Kerch straits, into the Crimea, and purposely made the bridge so low that only vessels that were inspected could pass through the highest point, and in some cases merchant vessels cut the top part of the main mast off to pass through the straight. Some large carriers that use to pass cannot anymore –therefor limiting the supply route, and tonnage, raising costs.
Russia has been increasing the inspections, and those inspections can hold up ships for upwards of a week, perishable goods are lost; shipping schedules are in a mess. and the inspections and hold ups, are against Ukrainian bound vessels. As only two country share that sea. Now Putin does not have the right to do that according to the bilateral agreement of 2003. and besides the Ukraine dominated the coastline of the Azov sea before the Crimean thief — 70% of the coastline belong to the Ukraine.
The largest city on the Azov sea is Mariupol a city of 500,000 which depends heavily on shipping for its steel and agricultural products. It is in the Ukraine.
This control of the area with an illegal bridge across to Crimea, which cost 300% over budget, and was hastily built by a close friend and pipeline builder of Putin inner circle. The Ukrainian government was not part of the decision-making and it was constructed on the one of the poorest areas of the Ukraine. The Russians now consider the Crimea part of Russia, fully integrated — the cost has been huge to the Ukraine , the economic impact has been a loss to the economy of 66% of previous capital earned.
The Crimea is connected to the Ukraine by land, but it is not connected by land to Russia. CRIMEA IS A THIEF of land.
This is economic war and the Russian government practice this throughout the region. The format changes but the process is the same, in Georgia, and throughout the Balkans.
The aim is to cripple the Ukrainian economy, so that it is forced to come to Russia for its needs. Gas pipelines are constructed to exclude the Ukraine and other small republics, making them eventually dependent on the Kremlin. Which owns all energy and energy production in Russia.
A shadow economy controlled by Putin greedily steals 48% of Russian GDP.
The Crimea before the bridge was a poor area, Putin has falsely poured money into the area raising the income of the people to ten times what it should be, at the cost, to the rest of the Ukraine. The Kerch straits are off strategic importance to Russia.
Why would he want to dominate energy?
Why would he want to dominate what is at the end of the road of China’s one belt, one road initiative? Russian power is growing at the cost of its people, and other smaller republics around Russia.
China has now agreed to become dependent on Russian gas, and Iranian gas, at a cost to the U.S. and Putin’s new BFF the body chopping MbS sold China 5% of Aramco, and is now buying arms from Russia, in a new and huge deal over the next five years. Wanna bet who asks to become a BRICS nation. Russia is the BRICS!
He builds pipelines that do not include other smaller nations around Russia. He wishes to control energy totally in Europe and the Balkans. And if he controls energy…he controls manufacturing. Russia has access to enormous gas reserves in Siberia, and in Iran, and now he seduces MbS, with ‘high fives’ and they don’t like me either conversations with a muslim head chopper.
Putin is bound on expansionism and will change the laws in Russia so that he gains control for life.
Putin is not who you think he is…
” It sits on the largest oil and gas reserves on the planet”
Yes that’s why your angloamerican aristocracy is so obsessed about Russia.
And why it imposed those criminal oligarch stooges on Russia.
The British expert who was allowed to organise the privatisation/ looting pretended this wasnt his intention. As if the British ever wanted a rival to develop positively. As if they hadnt already deliberately and systematically organised the liquidation of Russia before.
Because Putin resists these evildoers the imperial footsoldiers have to demonise him but I dont think this is fertile ground for that kind of smearing.
You clearly don not know what you are talking about and your dragging some Anglo-American agenda.
But its is amazing how the trolls come out when you talk nasty about Herr Putin.
Get over it Michael. You have no clue how much you are wrong.
Stop reading and believing leftist articles bullshit..
Prove me wrong.
Oh dear, the BBC propaganda is working
Another braindead Putin-bot, or are you from “the Independent”.
Are you in one of those military cyber-disinfo units we have read about?
You have all the signs of a troll written allover you.
You probably dont believe a word you are saying.
When a reasonable and humane government like the Russian is given a load of bs by a hate-spitting angoamerican provocateur it makes sense to call it out.
PUTIN Declares War On Globalism IN SPEECH SEEN BY MILLIONS OF PEOPLE
Make sure Michael that you read the comments below this video
For god’s sake woman, he is barely out of diapers. And you think he is educating you..
“One has to be insincere and promise something which you cannot fulfill. So you either have to be a fool who does not understand what you are promising, or deliberately be lying.”
― Vladimir Putin
I am going tell you something of value, I have been study Russia for a long time. A number of years. And I will not waste my breath fighting trolls…
RT is a state-owned media channel, funded ‘TOTALLY” by the Kremlin. The first thing Putin did when he took office way back was close down every independent media and Radio TV station. He now has control of the press…
This piece of clap trap was not broadcast on any other channel, there was no foreign press, it was a production by the Kremlin via RT. It’s fake news, its actors and arranged crowds. It is FAKE NEWS.
The 2018 election was ballot box stuffing and fudging the tally numbers…he did get the required 50% for a successful election.
There is not enough space here to tell you how I know this..
RT pumps out Kremlin propaganda 24/7/365…why would I ever believe any of that…Putin is the KGB Director, that is the most secret society in the world.
RT is also on the list of strategic organizations of Russia — core organizations, that are vitally important to the longevity of the regime…all interconnected, and with people who can be trusted. Oligarchs in Putin’s pocket and their families are thoroughly involved.
And there are lots of useful idiots.
Now Putin Spent a lot of his career in Berlin heading and helping invent the Fifth Directive of the KGB in Berlin, as one of Yury Andropov’s main agents. He was trusted absolutely by Yury Andropov…why? Because he was programmed by Andropov for that, to do that…
It worth your time to find out what that means…really. Here’s a small start..open your mind and go where it leads you. Forget what you believe, and listen and open your eyes.
In the words of Dr Robert Stephan an expert on Russia…
“Look how they think”
“In counterintelligence, you’re looking for the keys to manipulation. I’m trying to get you to think offensively.”
It is Putin’s aim to make Russia the Greatest Empire on planet earth.
Now look at how they think…from the horse’s mouth…
His weapons of war are fascinating, to say the lease about it, all the knuckle draggers expect him to come through the front door guns blazing — mushroom clouds — most don’t understand ‘Mutually Assured Destruction’, he will fight no such war..lol. But the war is, upon us.
And you are being changed, you would never have said this thirty years ago…
He is already planting symbols in Western Society’s mind, he is gauging the pulse of political punditry, his use of information gathering organizations like Cambridge Analytica, enable him to know the demographics, and their beliefs, it is like an ad campaign world-wide — he is looking at the frustration of average American, and then he weaponizes that rhetoric used to convince them — and the lies are repeated and repeated, over and over…trully I am surprised that Jon has not seen this…this is hypnotic mind control on a massive scale.
It is about placing frozen symbols, immovable things in the mind of the enemy, causing a dissonance if one tries to remove them — he is very good at it, even though he does not use a computer. He does understand its power, but does not under-estimate it, and he is exploiting it to the fullest. Only a KGB officer would know this…
The greatest country on earth is the Internet…
And he has stated that “he who controls the internet and AI controls the world.” And he is right.
Now you can believe what you want…but Vladimir Putin, and his henchmen are the fucking anti-christ. He will cause the collapse of the US if allowed too…and his form of Globalism is far worse than what we fight…
Independent media, yes we know how independent those privately owned media are. In Russia the western financiers would make sure to use them in order to liquidate Russia once more. The Russian media have way more vitality in the debates than the west where everything is controlled by big brother so no dangerous truths would emerge.
Western msm globalist puppets are gradually loosing to the altmedia.
So they block their payment services and sometimes servers.
The liars you have fallen for are obsessed with Putin who has very little to do with western alt media. The only connection betwen them and Russian media is that both care more for the truth than the greedy creeps who run the show in the west.
Lighten up and have a listen to the most interesting man in world…and come on over to light side.
I am sorry, I lost my patience to read your comment fully, it’s just so … – forgive me to speak freely – you mentioned KGB, Kreml, etc. I failed to see the difference between KGB and CIA, MI6, FBI and so on.
You mentioned Putin’s power above media. Just joking? Here when so often discussed that how OUR media lies to us, mislead us for example about vaccines, medicines, how they stage up fake news, eg that ‘Ebola documentary’ still on YouTube where that guy clearly not dying…and list is endless.
What are you talking about?!
We shouldn’t worry about other countries far away, or their leaders, media but our very owns first.
For US that how to stop compulsory vaccination, GM food, etc and sorry.
For us almost the same + the EU problem. So please let’s talk about the point, please.
Poor Michael, you are beyond repair. I feel sorry for you.
No its poor Quebec, with her crazy soap-opera image of Herr Putin.
The women over fifty in Russian think that, that little guy is the best, it is because they watch too much TV with endless video snippets that are produced about his prowess; with his shirt off; in a canoe; licking ice cream..
Putin in truck…
Putin in a white lab coat with sunglasses
Putin with his new face lift and botox shots
Putin in camoflage
Putin at church (he an atheist)
Putin speaking to a child
Putin in speed boat with a speedo…
or how about Putin high fiving the head chopper-in-chief, and killer of Kohoggi Mohammad bin Salman
I think your trapped in all that…
Reblogged this on John Barleycorn and commented:
The globalist control freaks are pushing the open borders and mass migration from third world countries. This will create a more dependent citizenry to the state, who will be more easily subjugated. These migrants have never known true freedom, chances are they won’t notice its absence from society.
The European Union budget of #100 billion seems a bit excessive. The same money could provide an annual grant of $20,000 to each resident of Liberia, or we could reduce the amount to $2,000 and offer that every year to each of the 50 million citizens of Kenya. In a few years of spreading the wealth, we would see economic rebirth beyond belief.
