Who IS Vladimir Putin? And why does it matter?

I’ve been a big fan of Vladimir Putin for several years, finding him to be not only massively intelligent, articulate, wide-ranging and detailed in his comprehension, but literally, I consider him the only real statesman of the 21st century. See his astrological chart. And I find it interesting that his predecessor, Yeltsin, turned over the reins of power on the final day of the 20th century, December 31, 1999!

So of course, I’ve been fascinated with Oliver Stone’s new interview series. And so very grateful to him for having made it. And though I confess to not having watched any of the four interviews yet, I have caught snatches, and read snatches of transcripts, and have paid close attention to others’ perspectives on what the series is about, what it shows about Putin, etc.

In this increasingly poisoned political atmosphere of rabid Russophobia, the Stone series is so damn welcome! And of course, Putin was correct in his prediction, that Stone would receive intense criticism from the MSM.

Here are two, probably the two ends of the extremes of those who also admire Putin. The first, by State of the Nation, unreservedly; the second, by longstanding peace activist David Swanson, who sounds a note of caution, given, he says, his experience.

Putin will eventually be known as VLADIMIR THE GREAT

Watching Putin Watch Dr. Strangelove

And of course, whose view prevails matters. Matters even more today than it did a few days ago, now that the ever aggressive U.S. shot down the Syrian jet and Russia declared its own red line in the sand.

Remember that Edgar Cayce saw Russia as “the hope of the world.” And futurist Lada Ray echoes Cayce, calling Russia the Great Balancer between East and West. According to her, and to others who have their thinking caps on, the West represents yang energy, and the East, yin energy. The action-oriented yang energy, when not balanced by yin, becomes too male, aggressive. The nurturing yin energy, when not balanced by yang, stagnates.

Hopefully, just in time, we now feel the yin energy rising just as the yang energy begins to deflate. This great balancing act via Putin’s leadership of the greatest landmass on this planet is what Lada Ray refers to as The Great Earth Shift.

    I can’t say that I share your interminable Adulation for St. Vladimir, Ann –but then I don’t really care all that much for the likes of his protégé Mr. Assad, either.

    And, as for Edgar Cayce…. well, let’s just assume that you Can Do Better.

    That being said, I happened to catch Charlie Rose last evening, interviewing Oliver Stone on his new St. Vladimir series; you might fine some of the snippets which were in that program to be different from some which you have seen before.

    Stone chose to run Putin’s answers to his questions in Russian on the soundtrack, with English subtitles, which made it difficult for codgers like me to read along, having to find the glasses which I gave up some years ago.

    But I definitely agree with the basic point which he made –repeatedly, through Rose’s truly obnoxious interruptions– to Rose about the overarching Reason for his spending some years putting together this series; put simply, Putin deserves to be Heard by the American Sheeple, over and beyond the Noise of the Main Flush Media.

    We all can certainly agree on that.

    I think?

  2. I meant to add that Rose is a very “uneven” interviewer –sometimes quite good, sometimes quite (amazingly) bad.

    Last night was definitely not his best; he continuously “stepped on” Stone’s answers to his questions, and went off on shortish tirades which focused on his (Rose’s) own rather laughably knee-jerk liberal opinions about Putin.

    It was interesting to watch the expression on Stone’s face as Rose did these obnoxious things –repeatedly; he was clearly (and quite rightly) Pissed Off by Rose’s thoroughly unprofessional interruptions, but the meaning of his expression was always clear.

    It was usually one of patient resignation, with a thin smile and a gentle, almost condescending nod, all of which said “Yeah, Charlie. I can put up with your ‘liberal’ nonsense, long as I get the publicity I need.”

    No matter what it was that your St. Vladimir actually said, Stone won the evening, hands down.

    This is awesome. Gotta go read some history so I have my back story well in mind. Thank you very much.

  4. The notice I got quoted Jamie as saying “I’ve been a big fan of Vladimir Putin for several years, finding him to be not only massively intelligent, articulate, wide-ranging and detailed in his comprehension, but literally, I consider him the only real statesman of the 21st century. See his astrological chart. And I find it interesting that his predecessor, Yeltsin, turned over the…[rest cut off, and the whole Reply removed?]”

    I have no problem at all with his being “massively intelligent” or “articulate” or “wide-ranging and detailed in his comprehension”; but characterizing him as “the only real statesman of the 21st century” is, we would surely have to agree, a pretty Low Bar (e.g., comparing him to –of all people– Yeltsin!).

    Nor do I givashit about his astrological chart –“By their Works shall ye Know them” has always been my favorite rubricated passage in the Red Letter New Testament.

    And it’s *possible* that the Ruskies “interfering” in the U.S. election (to say nothing of a baker’s dozen European ones) is a Bad Rap, a CIA frame up; plus, I can think of a pretty good historically-based excuse for a Russian claim to the Crimea (though hardly to the whole of the Ukraine).

    And I suppose that the innumerable instances of his political opponents ending up in prison or dying “accidentally” via traumatic lead poisoning (not to mention the journalists critical of him) *could* be just coincidences.

    • Accepting all those caveats, I’m wondering if his massive –and totally Enabling– support for Mr. Assad be justified by the latter’s “astrological chart” as well?

      Or is that role just part of being the only real statesman of the 21st century?

      What a Nice Guy, is Mr. Assad.

      As I’m sure a proper reading of his chart will prove.

      After all, which are you to believe, that chart or your own lying eyes?
