Putin Post-Mortem: "Unipolar Model Of World Is Over... Give Us Our Money"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Vladimir Putin has concluded his lengthy interview having covered everything from "the end of the unipolar model of the world" - i.e. de-dollarization - to US and Europe's responsibility for Ukraine's "full-scale civil war." The Russian leader noted that he's "trying to help Ukraine" but following the loans from the IMF asks "where's our money?" and warned that US sanctions have had little effect on the Russian economy but will have a boomerang effect. The following distills his 120 minute discussion... Putin "expects common sense to prevail."

My goodness, AnAnonymous.  Are you the new replacement for the old AnAnonymous?  

Your writing style seems to have undergone dramatic improvement.

Maybe what you don't quite grasp about many of the commenters on ZH is the amount of disgust about the CHANGES we have seen in our society and our leadership.  Few, if any, harbor any love and affection for other models of structuring societies.  We just want our model back.  We want our Constitution honored.  We want our nation to become a NATION OF LAWS again.  We want courts that respect property rights and liberties of individulas, and elected representatives that work for the citizens that vote for them.  

So, it is with with various mixtures of anger, disgust, resentment, and even fear that we call out the piss-poor, corrupt politicians, bankers, multi-nationals, and war mongers in the MIC.  We long for leadership that will be strong and honest, and try to restore some semblance of honor & integrity.  Humans will never be perfect, so no system designed and controlled by them could ever be without problems.  We had the best ever, though, in my humble opinion.  It has been gradually torn apart, however, as is visible to anyone paying close attention.  Don't expect us to kiss the asses of those we consider responsible, and don't misjudge when we express admiration for foreigners who show the leadership skills and sense of patriotism we wish to restore.

Exactly right, the good ole' days when children worked in coal mines, black people knew their place, standard oil ran the country, mexicans didn't want to immigrate and if you weren't born rich 99.999% chance on being dirt poor for life. Almost there again!

"...and elected representatives that work for the citizens that vote for them."

Isn't this sorta the problem we have now? That they ARE working for the citizens that vote for them. The citizenry needs a ideological enema and a dose of liberty re-education as do our "representatives". How about having representatives that don't work very much at all because there's such limited work actually necessary. We'd all be better off.

Good catch.  They need to work for all.  They should work for much less as well.  How about $25K per year with travel, vouchers for room and board as well as health insurance and the like - for the time they are in office.  Tro in some term limits and we might have something.

Many in Congress had successful, productive lives pre-government. Why is government a freaking promotion? They go there with "good intentions" and drink the kool-aid via beer bong and if not get by osmosis. What the...? Idiocy.

That says a lot.  People think it is about Ukraine but Russia took in Snowden, foiled the plot in Syria, and possibly was behind the attack in Benghazi (as part of the Syrian drama).  Russia is being attacked more directly as a result.

Look everyone.  Ignore the usless/greedy paper-pushers.  Trade is the only thing that keeps people employed.  Putin knows this.

After doing business with a russian firm since 1996, I know exactly what to expect with every shipment/deal.  It isn't ideal, but it is what it is and we get paid.

If the corrupt corporate "leadership" and their political puppets in D.C. can't pull there collective heads out of their asses, America will just be just as corrupt as Russia soon, and that won't be good for anyone.

Another good example is Brazil, corrupt as fuck, but when we ship them soybeans, they show me the money.

Far too many useless/greedy fucking paper-pushers getting in the way of bussiness/trade in America.  Cut the fuckers out, fine with me.

Someone stinks of fear, and it certainly isn't Putin.

Hedge accordingly.

Have they always been?  please, nothing will change significantly until the supply lines break in earnest.

Sorry, but if you could spell it out for us, we all might get it.  As my old pappy used to say, "if you can explain it, I can understand it - if you can't explain it, I'm not interested."

We went from your contention that capital and production run away from corruption (which I questioned) to EBT cards and no food on the shelves.

Those may be conjoined in your mind, but it's quite a leep for mine.

No, industry is moving from one degree of corruption to a lesser degree of corruption, or theft. Take your pick on how it's defined. Besides that, money in voluntary exchange chases lower cost/price of a good or service, always.

Actually the opposite can be true. People and industries can actually seek out corruptable places in order to create dominance. In other words, if one sells a widget, one might seek to dominate that certain widget market by use of corruption. But yes, it is a cost of doing business for them. It is also fascism. And we know it exists.

Putin is far more reasonable than the TOTUS who has been droning poor people, signed NDAA, killed American citizens without a trial including a sixteen year old, spying on everyone on this planet, handed NSA data on Americans over to Israel without legal restrictions, persecuted whistleblowers, caused the turmoil in Ukraine and almost started a major war in Syria based on lies about sarin.  Well played, Mr Nobel Prize Winner.

Again, note that this kid wasn't killed in the same drone strike as his father. He was hit by a drone strike elsewhere, and by the time he was killed, his father had already been dead for two weeks. Gibbs nevertheless defends the strike, not by arguing that the kid was a threat, or that killing him was an accident, but by saying that his late father irresponsibly joined al Qaeda terrorists. Killing an American citizen without due process on that logic ought to be grounds for impeachment

The US Congress, of course, IS one sorry joke, and they are completely happy to have the executive, judicial and lobbying branches of government conduct all "governing", so they can focus on collecting campaign funds, receiving blow-jobs from underlings, and insider-trading.

Ignoring ideological this and that and searches for moral high ground . . . here is all that matters in the interview:

 

*PUTIN SAYS KOVYKTA, CHAYANDA HAVE GAS RESERVES FOR 50 YRS

From wiki:

The reserves of Kovykta amount to 2 trillion cubic meters of natural gas and more than 83 million tons of gas condensate. The period of active gas production in the Kovykta field is expected to be 30 years, and the period of field development about 50 years

and for CHANYANDA

This includes more than 300 gas and 140 oil wells, four pre-treatment units, one comprehensive gas treatment unit, one oil treatment unit, and three booster compressor stations.[2] The maximum gas production is expected to be up to 25 billion cubic metres per annum (880 billion cubic feet per annum) and oil production up to 1.5 million tonnes per annum.[9] Production of oil is expected to start in 2014 and production of natural gas in 2019.

FYI a ton is 7 barrels.  1.5 X 7 / 365 --> 29K bpd.  Tiny oil flow, it's a gas field.

So it is going to happen.  Bankers are not gods walking among us.  And nature likes entropy.

Imagine if enough people realize that banks actually do not lend deposits?

Every regime change (reserve currency change) invites doubt into the system as a whole.

it's risk they are taking. like a chance of 5% of USD HY, at least until 2017

yet it does not have to happen. because the name of that brigde is... confidence. the big bully brother of hope

pods,

This could very well just be moving the sheep to a different pen.

there is no need to move sheep anywhere, all that needs to happen is sheep minds shift to the dog-whistle.

what's happening is the call to move minds to another part of the "penned field" - some will resist, get nipped - but most will believe in their new choices, will cheer their single option, seemingly chosen.

Every regime change (reserve currency change) invites doubt into the system as a whole.

yes, a shift in fiat will certainly shift the minds that use it - confusing many, angering even more, despair will be apparent, blahblahblah.

but ultimately, the absolute majority of humans will look "above" them for the Leader to fall behind, a comforting story told them all their lives, top down hierarchies, someone looking over/out for them, like Gods & uniformed Leaders.

and some of us will just continue to watch - "doubt the System as a whole"? - yes!  but so rare in humans.

Both China and Russia took a seat when offered in the 'american' scheme of ways.

Both countries are also far from being bottom ones, meaning they benefit a lot from the USD.

Just posturing to keep on character. Until now, Putin has played no card that could show he is going against the 'american' world order.

'American' attacks are blatant, obvious to all. When you have spent a large part of your life staging yourself as a strong man, either you keep the show going or you dont.

When Putin makes moves to disengage from the USD by dissing out the benefits Russia gets out of it, then he walks the walks.

Russia is still under the thumb of criminal oligarchs, and naturally Vlad is, has to be, in bed with some of them.  It's certainly better for the average Russian than it was under Yeltsin, whose firesale of Russian wealth, almost exclusively to Jewish billionaires, was one of the great outright thefts of history.  

The Ukrainian oligarchs, also mostly Jews, are firmly on the side of ZATO. As GW pointed out, the most despicable one of all, likely with ties to Mossad, was responsible for the holocaust of dozens of civilians in Odessa.

http://beforeitsnews.com/economy/2014/05/mastermind-of-odessa-massacre-e...

 

There is, apart from the CIA, a 5th column in Russia, and I would expect that the ZATO playbook at this point calls for an assassination attempt or coup.

 

And it would be executed by the same folks who murdered the Tsar and murdered tens of millions of Russian and Ukrainian Orthodox Christians.

 

And the hidden hand, acting out in the open, can count on the press, and many of you, to refuse to discuss who they are and why they act.  Just as wikipedia dissembles re "jewish bolshevism"  ( antisemitic canard! Really!!) And just as nowhere in the msm has the truth of Odessa discussed.
