I want to first give some good news to readers… My good friend and colleague, John Kaminski, who lives in Northport Florida, which of course was right in the ‘bullseye’ of Hurricane Ian as it made landfall last Wednesday at the Port Charlotte region of the Florida gulf coast, is alive and well… He did attempt to call me yesterday from his cell phone, and in spite of the shitty communications (cell phone service is presently hit and miss to that region of Florida for the moment..) he was able to quickly convey that he is OK and we will try to talk directly very soon…. I will inform everyone of what John says in that direct communication with yours truly soon….
OK, One other matter.. And it concerns that “Hurricane” and pertains to my article yesterday where I, being the pessimist I always am, have some big questions about the actual ‘intensity’ of the storm that hit Florida… I have seen the recent video where a ‘CNN Reporter’ was trying to claim that he was being buffeted by ‘severely high winds’ from Hurricane Ian, and yet a bystander is seen walking calmly behind him, with apparently very little ‘wind’ blowing on his at all, and getting into a motor vehicle on the street! Here in fact is that video, via Bitchute, for everyone to analyze for themselves:
Many are indeed using this video as evidence of the fraud, and calling that crap known as ‘CNN’ a load of garbage and falsifying their reports on this ‘hurricane’ and I too am smelling bullshit… We may be seeing yet another ‘Charles Jaco fraud’ from the Gulf War of 1991 being repeated again by these con artists….
Now, onto the matter at hand… I have watched and seen President Vladimir Putin’s great speech to the entire world yesterday, and I figured that once a decent translation transcript of that speech was available, I would present that here for everyone, courtesy of the fine work of my fellow Canadian real truth seeker, Greencrow (www.greencrowasthecrowflies.ca), to see for themselves right here at this blog… And I have that transcript that I definitely want readers to see for themselves here, followed by my usual thoughts and comments:
September 30m 2022
The Kremlin, Moscow
PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN SAYS:
“The people living in Lugansk and Donetsk, in Kherson and Zaporozhye have become our citizens, forever.”
“We call on the Kiev regime to immediately cease fire and all hostilities; to end the war it unleashed back in 2014 and return to the negotiating table.”
“The choice of the people in Donetsk, Lugansk, Zaporozhye & Kherson will not be discussed. The decision has been made, & Russia will not betray it. We will defend our land with all the forces & resources we have, & we will do everything we can to ensure the safety of our people.”
“We will definitely rebuild the destroyed cities & towns, the residential buildings, schools, hospitals, theatres and museums. We will restore & develop industrial enterprises, factories, infrastructure, as well as the social security, pension, healthcare and education systems.”
“When the Soviet Union collapsed, the West decided that the world and all of us would permanently accede to its dictates. In 1991, the West thought that Russia would never rise after such shocks and would fall to pieces on its own. This almost happened.”
“We remember the horrible 1990s, hungry, cold & hopeless. But Russia remained standing, came alive, grew stronger & occupied its rightful place in the world. Meanwhile, the West continued and continues looking for another chance to strike a blow at us, to weaken & break up Russia, which they have always dreamed about, to divide our state & set our peoples against each other, & to condemn them to poverty & extinction. They cannot rest easy knowing that there is such a great country with this huge territory in the world, with its natural wealth, resources, and people who cannot and will not do someone else’s bidding. The West is ready to cross every line to preserve the neo-colonial system which allows it to live off the world, to plunder it thanks to the domination of the dollar and technology…“to collect an actual tribute from humanity, to extract its primary source of unearned prosperity, the rent paid to the hegemon.
The preservation of this annuity is their main, real & absolutely self-serving motivation. This is why total de-sovereignisation is in their interest.”
“This explains their aggression towards independent states, traditional values and authentic cultures, their attempts to undermine international and integration processes, new global currencies and technological development centres they cannot control.”
“It is critically important for them to force all countries to surrender their sovereignty to the United States. In certain countries, the ruling elites voluntarily agree to do this, voluntarily agree to become vassals; others are bribed or intimidated.”
“And if this does not work, they destroy entire states, leaving behind humanitarian disasters, devastation, ruins, millions of wrecked & mangled human lives, terrorist enclaves, social disaster zones, protectorates, colonies, and semi-colonies. They don’t care.”
“All they care about is their own benefit. I want to underscore again that their insatiability and determination to preserve their unfettered dominance are the real causes of the hybrid war that the collective West is waging against Russia.”
“They do not want us to be free; they want us to be a colony. They do not want equal cooperation; they want to loot. They do not want to see us a free society, but a mass of soulless slaves. They see our thought and our philosophy as a direct threat.”
“That is why they target our philosophers for assassination. Our culture and art present a danger to them, so they are trying to ban them. Our development and prosperity are also a threat to them because competition is growing. They do not want or need Russia, but we do.”
“The West is counting on impunity, on being able to get away with anything. As a matter of fact, this was actually the case until recently. Strategic security agreements have been trashed; agreements reached at the highest political level have been declared tall tales; firm promises not to expand NATO to the east gave way to dirty deception as soon as our former leaders bought into them; missile defence, intermediate-range and shorter-range missile treaties have been unilaterally dismantled under far-fetched pretexts.”
“And all we hear is, the West is insisting on a rules-based order. Where did that come from anyway? Who has ever seen these rules? Who agreed or approved them? Listen, this is just a lot of nonsense, utter deceit, double standards, or even triple standards!”
“They must think we’re stupid. Russia is a great thousand-year-old power, a whole civilization, and it is not going to live by such makeshift, false rules.”
“It was the so-called West that trampled on the principle of the inviolability of borders, and now it is deciding, at its own discretion, who has the right to self-determination and who does not, who is unworthy of it. It is unclear what their decisions are based on or who gave them the right to decide in the first place. They just assumed it.”
“That is why the choice of the people in Crimea, Sevastopol, Donetsk, Lugansk, Zaporozhye and Kherson makes them so furiously angry. The West does not have any moral right to weigh in, or even utter a word about freedom of democracy. It does not and it never did.”
“Western elites not only deny national sovereignty and international law. Their hegemony has pronounced features of totalitarianism, despotism and apartheid.”
“They brazenly divide the world into their vassals – the so-called civilised countries – and all the rest, who, according to the designs of today’s Western racists, should be added to the list of barbarians and savages.”
“False labels like ‘rogue country’ or ‘authoritarian regime’ are already available, and are used to stigmatise entire nations and states, which is nothing new. There is nothing new in this: deep down, the Western elites have remained the same colonisers.”
“They discriminate and divide peoples into the top tier and the rest. We have never agreed to and will never agree to such political nationalism and racism. What else, if not racism, is the Russophobia being spread around the world?”
“What, if not racism, is the West’s dogmatic conviction that its civilisation and neoliberal culture is an indisputable model for the entire world to follow? ‘You’re either with us or against us.’ It even sounds strange.”
“Western elites are even shifting repentance for their own historical crimes on everyone else, demanding that the citizens of their countries and other peoples confess to things they have nothing to do with at all, for example, the period of colonial conquests.”
“It is worth reminding the West that it began its colonial policy back in the Middle Ages, followed by the worldwide slave trade, the genocide of Indian tribes in America, the plunder of India and Africa, the wars of England and France against China,..as a result of which it was forced to open its ports to the opium trade. What they did was get entire nations hooked on drugs and purposefully exterminated entire ethnic groups for the sake of grabbing land and resources, hunting people like animals.”
“This is contrary to human nature, truth, freedom, and justice. While we – we are proud that in the 20th century our country led the anti-colonial movement, which opened up opportunities for many peoples around the world to make progress, reduce poverty & inequality…and defeat hunger and disease.”
To emphasise, one of the reasons for the centuries-old Russophobia, the Western elites’ unconcealed animosity toward Russia, is precisely the fact that we did not allow them to rob us during the period of colonial conquests and forced the Europeans to trade with us on mutually beneficial terms. This was achieved by creating a strong centralised state in Russia, which grew and got stronger based on the great moral values of Orthodox Christianity, Islam, Judaism & Buddhism, as well as Russian culture and the Russian word that were open to all.
There were numerous plans to invade Russia. Such attempts were made during the Time of Troubles in the 17th century and in the period of ordeals after the 1917 revolution. All of them failed.”
“The West managed to grab hold of Russia’s wealth only in the late 20th century when the state had been destroyed. They called us friends and partners, but they treated us like a colony, using various schemes to pump trillions of dollars out of the country.”
“We remember. We have not forgotten anything.
Western countries have been saying for centuries that they bring freedom and democracy to other nations. Nothing could be further from the truth.”
“Instead of bringing democracy they suppressed and exploited, and instead of giving freedom they enslaved and oppressed. The unipolar world is inherently anti-democratic and unfree; it is false and hypocritical through and through.”
“The United States is the only country in the world that has used nuclear weapons twice, destroying the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. And they created a precedent.”
“Recall that during WWII the United States and Britain reduced Dresden, Hamburg, Cologne, and many other German cities to rubble, without the least military necessity. It was done ostentatiously and, to repeat, without any military necessity.”
“They had only one goal, as with the nuclear bombing of Japanese cities: to intimidate our country and the rest of the world.
The United States left a deep scar in the memory of the people of Korea and Vietnam with their carpet bombings and use of napalm and chemical weapons.”
“It [the United States] actually continues to occupy Germany, Japan, the Republic of Korea and other countries, which they cynically refer to as equals and allies. Look now, what kind of alliance is that?”
“The whole world knows that the top officials in these countries are being spied on and that their offices and homes are bugged. It is a disgrace, a disgrace for those who do this and for those who, like slaves, silently and meekly swallow this arrogant behaviour.”
“They call the orders and threats they make to their vassals Euro-Atlantic solidarity, and the creation of biological weapons and the use of human test subjects, including in Ukraine, noble medical research.”
“It is their destructive policies, wars and plunder that have unleashed today’s massive wave of migrants. Millions of people endure hardships and humiliation or die by the thousands trying to reach Europe.”
“They are exporting grain from Ukraine now. Where are they taking it under the guise of ensuring the food security of the poorest countries? Where is it going? They are taking it to the self-same European countries. Only five percent has been delivered to the poorest countries.”
“More cheating and naked deception again.
In effect, the American elite is using the tragedy of these people to weaken its rivals, to destroy nation states. This goes for Europe and for the identities of France, Italy, Spain and other countries with centuries-long histories.”
“Washington demands more and more sanctions against Russia and the majority of European politicians obediently go along with it. They clearly understand that by pressuring the EU to completely give up Russian energy and other resources, the United States is practically pushing Europe toward de-industrialisation–in a bid to get its hands on the entire European market. These European elites understand everything – they do, but they prefer to serve the interests of others.”
“This is no longer servility but direct betrayal of their own peoples. God bless, it is up to them.
But the Anglo-Saxons believe sanctions are no longer enough and now they have turned to subversion.”
“It seems incredible, but it is a fact – by causing explosions on Nord Stream’s international gas pipelines passing along the bottom of the Baltic Sea, they have actually embarked on the destruction of Europe’s entire energy infrastructure.”
“It is clear to everyone who will stand to gain. Those who benefit are responsible, of course.
The dictates of the US are backed up by crude force, on the law of the fist. Hence, the deployment and maintenance of hundreds of military bases in all corners of the world, NATO expansion, and attempts to cobble together new military alliances, such as AUKUS and the like. Much is being done to create a Washington-Seoul-Tokyo military-political chain.”
“All states that possess or aspire to genuine strategic sovereignty and are capable of challenging Western hegemony, are automatically declared enemies.
These are the principles that underlie US and NATO military doctrines that require total domination.”
“Western elites are presenting their neocolonialist plans with the same hypocrisy, claiming peaceful intentions, talking about some kind of deterrence. This evasive word migrates from one strategy to another but really only means one thing – undermining any and all sovereign centres of power.”
“We have already heard about the deterrence of Russia, China and Iran. I believe next in line are other countries of Asia, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, as well as current US partners and allies.”
“After all, we know that when they are displeased, they introduce sanctions against their allies as well – against this or that bank or company. This is their practice and they will expand it.”
“In launching the sanctions blitzkrieg against Russia, for example, they thought that they could once again line up the whole world at their command. As it turns out, however, such a bright prospect does not excite everyone – other than complete political masochists and admirers of other unconventional forms of international relations. Most states refuse to ”snap-a-salute“ and instead choose the sensible path of cooperation with Russia.
The West clearly did not expect such insubordination.”
“They simply got used to acting according to a template, to grab whatever they please, by blackmail, bribery, intimidation, and convinced themselves that these methods would work forever, as if they had fossilised in the past.”
“Such self-confidence is a direct product not only of the notorious concept of exceptionalism – although it never ceases to amaze – but also of the real ‘information hunger’ in the West.”
“The truth has been drowned in an ocean of myths, illusions and fakes, using extremely aggressive propaganda, lying like Goebbels. The more unbelievable the lie, the quicker people will believe it – that is how they operate, according to this principle.”
“But people cannot be fed with printed dollars and euros. You can’t feed them with those pieces of paper, and the virtual, inflated capitalisation of western social media companies can’t heat their homes.”
“Everything I am saying is important. And what I just said is no less so: you can’t feed anyone with paper – you need food; and you can’t heat anyone’s home with these inflated capitalisations – you need energy. That is why politicians in Europe have to convince their fellow citizens to eat less, take a shower less often and dress warmer at home. And those who start asking fair questions like ‘Why is that, in fact?’ are immediately declared enemies, extremists and radicals.”
“They point back at Russia and say: that is the source of all your troubles. More lies.
I want to make special note of the fact that there is every reason to believe that the Western elites are not going to look for constructive ways out of the global food and energy crisis they and they alone are to blame for, as a result of their long-term policy, dating back long before our special military operation in Ukraine, in Donbass. They have no intention of solving the problems of injustice and inequality.”
“I am afraid they would rather use other formulas they are more comfortable with.
And here it is important to recall that the West bailed itself out of its early 20th century challenges with World War I.”
“Profits from World War II helped the United States finally overcome the Great Depression & become the largest economy in the world, & to impose on the planet the power of the dollar as a global reserve currency. And the 1980s crisis–things came to a head in the 1980s again. The West emerged from it unscathed, largely by appropriating the inheritance and resources of the collapsed and defunct Soviet Union. That’s a fact.
Now, in order to free itself from the latest web of challenges, they need to dismantle Russia as well as other states that choose a sovereign path of development, at all costs, to be able to further plunder other nations’ wealth and use it to patch their own holes. If this does not happen, I cannot rule out that they will try to trigger a collapse of the entire system and blame everything on that, or, God forbid, decide to use the old formula of economic growth through war.
Russia is aware of its responsibility to the international community and will make every effort to ensure that cooler heads prevail.”
“The current neocolonial model is ultimately doomed; this much is obvious. But I repeat that its real masters will cling to it to the end. They simply have nothing to offer the world except to maintain the same system of plundering and racketeering.”
“They do not give a damn about the natural right of billions of people, the majority of humanity, to freedom and justice, the right to determine their own future. They have already moved on to the radical denial of moral, religious, and family values.”
“The world has entered a period of a fundamental, revolutionary transformation. New centres of power are emerging. They represent the majority–the majority!–of the international community. They are ready not only to declare their interests but also to protect them.”
“They see in multipolarity an opportunity to strengthen their sovereignty, which means gaining genuine freedom, historical prospects, and the right to their own independent, creative and distinctive forms of development, to a harmonious process.”
“As I have already said, we have many like-minded people in Europe and the United States, and we feel and see their support. An essentially emancipatory, anti-colonial movement against unipolar hegemony is taking shape in the most diverse countries and societies.”
“Its power will only grow with time. It is this force that will determine our future geopolitical reality.
Today, we are fighting for a just and free path, first of all for ourselves, for Russia, in order to leave dictate and despotism in the past. I am convinced that countries and peoples understand that a policy based on the exceptionalism of whoever it may be and the suppression of other cultures and peoples is inherently criminal, and that we must close this shameful chapter.”
“The ongoing collapse of Western hegemony is irreversible. And I repeat: things will never be the same. Today, we are fighting so that it would never occur to anyone that Russia, our people, our language, or our culture can be erased from history.”
“Today, we need a consolidated society, and this consolidation can only be based on sovereignty, freedom, creation, and justice.
Our values are humanity, mercy and compassion.”
NTS Notes: I want to again thank Greencrow for this entire transcript of this fabulous speech..
And yes, EVERYTHING that Vladimir Putin is stating is logical, rational, and based on FACTS…. This flies of course in the face of the criminals in the ‘West’ that continue to promote their evil intentions of using UKRAINE as a proxy for their intended war against Russia itself..
Yes, the gist of this entire speech is that the good people of those 4 breakaway republics did exactly what they have EVERY RIGHT to do, which is to VOTE and VOTE FREELY in a UN sponsored referendum AND vote OVERWHELMINGLY to free themselves from the tyranny of the UKRAINIAN psychotic ‘leadership’ to choose their future…. And that future is definitely with the Russian Federation!
And the shots that Vladimir Putin takes at the west are 100% true and very real… The entire so called ‘NATO’ organization is so utterly corrupt and pure evil… Every ‘nation’ that follows that evil group are basically turned into ‘minions’ of the evils of Washington and could indeed find themselves fighting and dying for that most evil group of criminals…
I for one have written for the last 15 years now in my blogs that NATO is a criminal group that should have been disbanded DECADES ago, and I am standing behind that as FACT…
AND yes, everything that Vladimir Putin states about the UNITED STATES is 100% fact… I have to state to my American friends and readers that you do live in possibly THE MOST EVIL AND CORRUPT nation on planet Earth (Canada is not too far behind FYI…)….. Sadly I have watched such a great nation that I actually had believed at one time to be a ‘force for good in the world’ turn into a hell on Earth that seems to be hell bent on seeing the destruction of the entire planet!
Yes, this is a speech that should be seen by everyone, for it holds so many truths and a wake up call for the entire world…. I just hope that we all still have time to listen to these words and make a difference before we watch the entire world go to hell…
More to come
