Putin Chosen As World's Third Most-Admired Person Behind Gates, Obama

Tyler Durden's picture


After a banner year for the former KGB spy, who first neutralized Prince Bandar, Bibi and John Kerry (not to mention the president of the US), and subsequently reannexed the Ukraine into the Russian sphere of influence now that the second coming of the former USSR is in the works, it should come as no surprise that Russia's Vladimir Putin has been named the third most admired person in the world. Then again when one considers who is ahead of Putin in the Time poll, perhaps this distinction is nothing to write to the NSA about - third spot is located behind Microsoft founder Bill Gates and US President Barack Obama. Indicatively, this also means that Barack Obama is inexplicably still the second most respected person in the world.

From RIA:

The newspaper reported that Putin’s popularity among Russians helped him secure the third place on the list. The poll conducted in 13 countries around the world revealed that the Russian leader earned more admiration than Pope Francis, who came fourth.


The world’s richest man, Gates is the most admired person in China and more highly regarded than China's President Xi Jinping, Obama and Putin, who was named the fourth admired person by the Chinese citizens, according to the poll published Saturday.


In Russia, Gates was chosen as the second most admired person, ahead of famous US actress Angelina Jolie and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden, who has been granted temporary asylum in Russia, was named the tenth most admired person by Russians.


The YouGov poll surveyed nearly 14,000 people from the UK, France, Germany, Russia, the US, Australia, Pakistan, Indonesia, India, China, Egypt, Nigeria and Brazil.


Putin, 61, was named International Person of the Year by The Times in late December for succeeding in his ambition of bringing Moscow back to the international top table.

Here is the full list of the Top 10 most admired people around the world:

1 Bill Gates; 2 Barack Obama; 3 Vladimir Putin; 4 Pope Francis; 5 Sachin Tendulkar; 6 Xi Jinping; 7 Narendra Modi; 8 Warren Buffett; 9 Amitabh Bachchan; 10 Abdul Kalam.

Oddly nobody from Wall Street made the list (which appears to have been overrun by Indian voters).

A Metaphor for Putin

"Forgive us, Sovereign," it reads on large panels that recently commemorated the 400th anniversary of the Romanov Dynasty. Back in 2008, there was a television broadcast of the film, "Nikolai II: The Stolen Triumph." It brings together leading politicians, clergymen and historians "to show a fair picture of the reign of Czar Nicholas, one of the most successful in our history."

The czar can also be seen as a metaphor for the reigning leader of the Kremlin. Russian Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky has praised Putin as the "first ruler since Nicholas Romanov" who came to power legally. And Patriarch Kirill, the leader of the Orthodox Church, honored him in November for "preserving Russia as a great power."

Gates cooperated fully in NSA spying on everyone in this world for decades and is still the most admired man in the world?  The world is fucked.

Obama drones children and wedding parties, lied about the Sarin gas attack in Syria to almost start a major war, signed NDAA, and sold out US sovereignty to a foreign power in March 2009.  He is traitor to the US and the human race, and he is admired?  WTF, the human race is even more screwed.


A secret memo provided by former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden to the British Guardian newspaper reveals that the US spy agency is funneling raw intelligence data, including information from intercepted communications of US citizens, to Israeli intelligence.

While insisting that the Israelis operate with deference to the US Constitution and law, the memo adds, “This agreement is not intended to create any legally enforceable rights and shall not be construed to be either an international agreement or a legally binding instrument according to international law.” In other words, in practice ISNU and the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad are free to do as they please.

Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh has published an article demonstrating that the US government and President Barack Obama knowingly lied when they claimed that the Syrian government had carried out a sarin gas attack on insurgent-held areas last August.

Putin's popularity inside Russia has deep historical roots. Russians admire and want a strong leader, for obvious reasons. They sit in a bad place, they have been wide open to invasions since the begining of Russian society and nationhood. Only a strong leader has ever been able to secure the borders and peace of their existence. Their Muslim neighbors to the south preyed upon Ukraine and Russia for centuries, till defeated. The Mongols before conquered most all of Russia and they lived as vassels of their over lordship. This carrys through to Hitlers attempt to conquer the western Russian nation and to expunge the Russian people. This last effort failed. Many people do not know that in World War two a Russian person was treated much like the Jews of Russia. The jews were killed first, but an avergae Russian was made a slave, and many millions killed outright. Plans were for their total elimination after the war was won. This is in the Nazi's own economic plans, captured and studied after the war.

Today Putin took over for the Western Puppet Yeltsin who was a drunkard and a fucking fool, it was Yeltsin who used western economic advisors to give away the USSR's assets to a select group of people, many of them of a particular group well know for financial dealings.

Russians want as much democracy as they can get, but only inside the zone of a stable and protected Russian border system. American neo-cons, if you read their writings on Russia, take the view that Russia should be conquered by the west and split up into western run mini nations. They dream of taking the Russian Far East for one.

Vlad is not Jesus and he isn't a liberal democrat, but in an historical sense he is one of Russia's best leaders in centuries, hands down!

The government documents of Germany's economics ministy contain all the plans for Russia west of the Urals. The destrution of most Russians is in balck and white in the planning documents for the occupation. The debate was how fast to kill the Russians, and how many to keep as slaves. Ukraine faced the same central planning by the economic ministy. I can recommend a book called "The Wages of Destrcution". This is an economic history of the Third Reich using all available government documents.

2) A warmonger tryrant that is dragging down the entire western world

3) the best of the lot, a KGB strongman.
