… by Konrad Stachnio, … with New Eastern Outlook, Moscow
[ Editor’s note: We are pleased to bring another Konrad Stachnio article, part of our efforts to give some visibility to overseas activists who are in tune with many of our geopolitical concerns, so you can evaluate their motivations and the potential for working more closely together.
We also have an ulterior motive, and that is we no longer have much faith in the non-united victims of the New World Order elites being able to derail their “rule over us all” movement… by one issue in one country at a time.
We have to pool and coordinate our efforts, as our common enemy can attack anywhere in the world, and in multiple places at once. We need a worldwide network to deal with that.
We older folks are also thrilled to see more and more young people stepping up to the plate, but not bringing the tired clichés of the Old Left with them. The young folks know Leftist cheap propaganda, just like the Rightist version when they see that. I will add the caveat that this is not a universal talent among the young, but the trend is moving right, ah…excuse me… in the correct direction.
We have a big job in front of us, to bust the vice grip that the banksters and gangsters have on a very large number of the world’s governments. And that also refers to what I now call the “pretend-a-democracies”.
One of our first hurdles is to get people to understand that most of us live in occupied countries, but not in the traditional sense. Yes, outsiders have a role, especially when international drug and organized crime money is flowing into political campaigns like a Mississippi River.
But we can beat them with our numbers. The key is getting organized in each area and building bridges to work on our most critical overlapping concerns. This has to be a generational battle, because that is what was put upon us when the banksters robbed us of a generation of wealth. We have not forgotten, we know who they are, and where they live. And we have a growing number of friends. That is not a bad start... Jim W. Dean ]

More volunteers who want to fight against the ‘Global oligarchy’ came to Donbas. This time they are French. People from Serbia, Spain, Germany, France, Poland, Israel, the United Kingdom and Greece already fought against Kiev.
Recently, volunteers look younger; people over forty went earlier to the militia, now the average age wanting to join the army DRL ranges from 18 to 30.
More and more people do not trust the corporate media, and they see what’s going on in the world. If I did not speak English, unfortunately I would never learn from the media in my country (Poland) what is really the situation in Gaza, Ukraine and the Middle East.
One of the French volunteers who fought in Donbas quite bluntly puts it:
“We are French volunteers and the first wave of the whole group, which either prepares to leave or is on the way. We support the geopolitical idea of European unity. We are both revolutionaries and traditionalists. We arrived to Donbas, where civilians are murdered by the people from Kiev. Those who carry out this terrorist operation in the Donbas are minions of the international mafia oligarchs.
You must understand that we are dealing with the Third World War. It began in Libya, then moved to Syria and now to Donbas. We can see that Russia is one of the few countries that has challenged and personally fight globalism. It’s kind of the Reconquista. We’re here to help Russia in this fight. We’re not here to earn money, we do not take any money from anyone. In fact, we spent a lot to get here.”
The world — despite American propaganda and huge expenditures for America’s promoting ‘democracy’, as in the case of $5 billion to NGOs in Ukraine — begins to stand on the side with Russia. In spite of the fact that the media do not publish reliable information on Russia and Ukraine, people around the world are beginning to turn their sympathy towards Russia.
Paradoxically, after the collapse of communism and Russia’s retreat from its Stalinist history, a ‘culture of a strong leader’ is emerging, although some people would see ‘democracy’ more in Dmitry Medvedev.
What ‘democracy à la Brzezinski’ looks like we know fairly well — Syria, Libya, Iraq etc. — but more on that soon. I must add that I have never been a sympathizer of the United States or Russia. When I thought about trips abroad, the last place I would choose would be Russia, which has always reminded me of the KGB, poverty, corruption, banditry, dirt, cold and hopelessness. Books written by the Polish authors emphasized these characteristics.
Russia was presented in my country as a large country which is so backward that you need to see it a bit like some rare animal in the zoo. This image of Russia thrives in Poland today, especially in the Kaliningrad region where I grew up.
America also never attracted me. Maybe that’s why I understand it now as the ‘end of America’ – this crypto pro-fascist country with the NSA, The National Endowment for Democracy and sponsorship of coups in other countries, wars and extremism.
Maybe if I had lived in the era of the deep communism in Poland, it would be harder to convince me now about the ‘Russians’, and I would sing paeans about the United States and NATO support for Europe being ‘at risk’, in the manner of Radoslaw Sikorski, Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs.
So why is Putin, the ‘Russian KGB apparatchik, post-Soviet agent’ as the media call him, gaining such popularity in the world? I do not know how much Russia spends on public relations, but I know how much the United States spent on it, and the sums are really big. However, this flock of sheep begins to see more and more that something is wrong.
They begin to realize that Uncle Sam overdid it a little bit, and he is going to overdo even more, and American stories about ‘terrorists’ will not change anything when the armored cars ride under your window and shoot at journalists, as in Ferguson, MO. And you, without a trial, can be pulled out of the house and, for the rest of your life, put in a CIA prison in Poland. And all of that in accordance with the ‘democratic’ rights, similar to the days of NSDAP and Reichstag fire.
We know what kind of ‘democracy’ Brzezinski would like to see in Russia… democracy à la Obama or any of the puppets from EU countries – with no one being accountable for anything, but with lots of people who can be bribed easily in order to gain admittance to the pro-Western ‘democracy’. Inert and stupid Poland is one example, being now a training ground for the USA.
This is how it is done here. First, you drive the country into economic ruin, and then you cease to be a Prime Minister, and you take the office in the EU and charge a much higher premium. A great example of such an activity can be our prime minister Donald Tusk, who is hated by the majority of Polish people.
America has become a fascist country as Germany in the past. That fact is very hard to understand by most of people. This ‘paradise on earth’ has already ended. Even complete idiots are subconsciously beginning to realize the seriousness of the situation.
They may still clog up with burgers, doing a ‘selfie’ on Facebook, but it is the end of an era, and everyone probably feels it, because it’s not some ‘regional’ conflict in a backwater of the world. This situation is global. And even those who do not want to see it will be compelled to do so due in the course of events.
There is, at the moment, no more talk about escaping to the so called ‘normal life’ and leaving problems at the door. What is happening in the world today touches, in one way or another, everyone.
President Putin against the Global Oligarchs
Global ‘oligarchs’ do not support freedom of information. And precisely on this field, they lose with Mr Putin. As opposed to Brzezinski and other Western ‘elites’, Putin is not afraid of the media and on the contrary, he uses it for his own benefit.
Strangely, this post-Stalinist country is now playing freedom of speech and the press card. An example is the Russia Today, which was one of the few media spaces that introduced a different view of the world than the only competent, public and ‘democratic’ media.
Putin used the fear of elites for spreading political awareness in his favor. Introducing a ‘multidimensional’ picture of the world by RT, he advertised Russia as a free and pro-developmental country. Even if it is a part of Putin’s propaganda – as John Kerry said — it still brings into the world what the Western media will never show you, because this is messing with their interests. RT just shows us the other side of the coin.
People around the world are becoming increasingly against the international oligarchy, hypocrisy of politicians and the media. Putin, as one leader of a great country, caught this surging wave of hatred to 0.0001% of the richest people and the puppet politicians.
And as the only ruler of a large country who decided to play this card, he has, as a result, gained tremendous support throughout the world in the eyes of the so-called regular people. It is very important that he is not just another puppet of any country of the European Union paid by Brussels or the USA.
Putin, in his approach, fosters the idea for people around the world that you can resist the big money, influences and media propaganda. That is why so many volunteers come to Ukraine and fight against Kiev. Ironically, he is not a ‘democratic’, shallow diplomat from a liberal country that inspires a rising global opposition, but a former KGB agent who wields great power.
He is now an example of the opportunity to challenge the western status quo, and brings hope for those who have nothing to lose. And there are more and more of them with the progressive economic depression.
Why is this happening? The answer is quite simple. In the background of the war campaign played out by Washington, each normal and clear-minded man distinguishes very much.
You do not need to be someone special. The world has had enough of war, terrorist ‘weapons of mass destruction’, poverty and ‘drones’, which administer death from overseas.
And above all, the EU’s fairly ‘liberal democracy allows plundering by influential groups of one country after another, because no one in those countries is responsible for anything — that means ‘democracy’ according to Brzezinski. And if a politician cares about his country too much, he or she can quickly die.
In media and political conditions posed by the United States, you don’t need to perform any sophisticated campaign. Just show what Western information services don’t want to show and everything starts to fall apart. Independent channels are formed all over the world. They grow like mushrooms after rain.
People are starting to work together and enjoy the fact that they are beginning to rise off their knees of sanctions, tax cuts and economic collapse. They begin to see what happens, and who got them into it. Whereas, Putin walks with these people hand in hand using this trend. He is not afraid of it, and does not suppress it as the Western media and Western elites do on every level.
A series of events are now on the side of Putin. What his growing popularity in the world, despite the huge propaganda can prove is that people want to live, they want to simply ‘be’, they want to work, to grow, to have a perspective.
The USA, at the moment, does not give any alternative; nothing but struggles with ‘terrorism’, economic depression, ‘the struggle for human rights’ and the hypocrisy of the western media.
Economic hope is at this time with block of China- Russia-Iran-Germany, because it’s here and not in another war with ‘terrorists’ the hope for peace and prosperity.
When you choose this alternative, you do not look for the alleged “weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq, of which the world is already so tired and have less and less faith. I think that, sooner or later, other countries will understand it. Germany will turn to the direction of the block as well as other countries will consolidate, seeing the destruction and death brought by the United States.
More and more people and countries see the destructive policy of the United States that harms the interests of European countries. We have, for example, the Chairman of the opposition party in Greece, who says that we should break the anti-Putin coalition. The Slovak Prime Minister also criticized the Russian sanctions as a reason for the disruption of gas supplies.
Cyprus, Austria, Luxembourg, Slovenia, Italy, France, Bulgaria… all those States did not see any sense in sanctions. Forty-one percent of Germany’s economy relies on exports, and this includes advanced technology, which is absorbed by the emerging Chinese market and not the collapsing Western markets.
Most of the gas used in Germany comes from Russia. The largest project carried out by German companies is building a modern trans-Russia railway from the eastern borders of the EU to the territories of Russia to China. The railway line is to transport goods from China to Europe in much less time than the sea route. Russia and China, at the moment, are the embodiment of development. It has become obvious, and people instinctively perceive it and cling to that.
The crux of Putin’s policy is not to make war. Putin leads tactics of ‘no aggression’; he hasn’t surrendered to any provocation by the United States, but he immediately takes to the very core of the problem, as he tries to cut off the hydra heads.
This is well recognized by Putin aide Sergei Glazin;
These activities should be directed towards undermining American military and political power, based on the issue of the dollar as a global currency. First of all, such measures should include the denial of the use of the dollar in mutual trade and refusal to invest in foreign exchange reserves in dollar-denominated securities. Dollar instruments should be regarded as extremely risky and their use should be avoided.
Together with the measures undermining American potential to finance the growth of military spending political efforts of forming a broad coalition of anti-war are needed, with the aim of condemnation of American aggression and the disclosure of its organizers in Washington and Brussels. Political mobilization of the European business is of particular importance, for which unleashing a new world war in Europe brings no good. And of course the most important task is the liberation of Ukraine from the national-revolutionary regime established by the United States.
Due to this very policy, Russia will not seek to avert a war because the problem is somewhere else. More and more people will be drawn towards Russia’s position. What they have to lose? On the side of the USA and the EU, there are sanctions, war, unemployment, taxes, puppet politicians and economic insecurity? By contrast, on the Chinese and Russian side, there is only growth, which bears fruit. The West’s growth is waning.
Therefore, people demand strong, decisive leaders who will take care of their national interests – God forbid not another ‘liberal democrat’ and technocrat in the service of the elites in the shadows. We all feel their ‘liberal’ policy on our skin. The world has had enough of shallow puppets from the EU in the service of the people of big money tying their hands, one country after another.
Devoted puppets who sell everything they can, bringing ordinary people to utter ruin. You only need to look at the unemployment rate in Europe and take note of the major politicians associated with Goldman Sachs in the European Union.
That is why Putin with all his KGB past serves as the current, final ‘dictator’, but the dictator more and more ‘positive’. Because even this’ dictatorship ‘is nothing in comparison to ‘pro-democratic’ governments of Bush, Obama, Cheney and other ‘pro-democrats’. What is democracy and what is America is well illustrated by the US chief strategist;
‘The world increasingly copies the patterns coming from America, which creates favourable conditions for the American hegemony, exercised indirectly and apparently based on democracy and consensus. And just as in the case of American political life, supremacy exists due to the complex structure of interconnected institutions and procedures designed just to blur the differences of opinion and mask the asymmetry of power and influence. American supremacy is based on a complicated system of alliances and coalitions which literally covers the entire world’. — Zbigniew Brzezinski.
