Batchelor and Cohen Return

Wed, Sep 19, 2018 - 10:30am

Professor Cohen returned last evening to discuss the latest twists and turns of The New Cold War with John Batchelor. As always, it is imperative that you find time to listen.

Much of the discussion last evening centered upon the vilification of Russia and Russian President Putin. As The New Cold War gets increasingly hotter in Syria and Ukraine, please be sure to listen this week and every week to these podcasts. Nowhere else in western media will you find such an objective and balanced discussion of these incredibly important events.

Not to be critical...

...but I wish these two could address more immediate topics. I know, SFC is an historian, and yes his views are relevant, yet, these conversations seem to have lost focus on the here-and-now and have lapsed into past events too often (for my taste).

If JB reads this site I would ask him to focus more on current events with Mr Cohen and go lighter on the history. I think Mr. Cohen can be a valuable source of insight into these more pressing issues.

These regular reports ...

These regular reports with John Bachelor and Steven Cohen are so biased, as to render them worthless.

Let's pretend that shooting down that Russian plane was an accident…

This completely misses the point that Israel was bombing the shit out of Syria, as the Zionists were trying once again to initiate a global conflict.

Steven mentions his credentials on historical wars of conquest, and fails to mention that the "chosen ones” have been trying to enlarge their "Promised Land" ever since they declared themselves the "chosen ones”.

The "chosen ones", have literally written the book on Wars of conquest, as they established the template at least three millennia ago.

So then the conversation goes into the demonization of Vladimir Putin..

Why does Steven never address who is behind this demonization? Could it be the "chosen ones" that Vladimír is just not cooperating with?

Apparently, you're not allowed to say such things on the radio.

In a completely sacrilegious act, Vladimír Putin is actually standing in the defense of the Russian people. What a concept.

Everywhere else, politicians just pretend to work for the people, while in actuality, they work for whoever bribes them the most, and this is almost never the people.

The function of government in most places, is to steal with impunity from the people by force.

Steven Cohen considers Vladimir Putin a soft dictator? Does even bother to mention Vladimír's 90% approval rating?

Of course not.

He talks about the clans that are opposed to Vladimír, and never mentions that they are almost all Jewish across-the-board, and if they don't identify themselves as Jews, then they identify themselves as Zionists, or globalists, which is a distinction without a difference.

Vladimir Putin might be one of the few human beings left on planet earth that is actually standing up for individual rights, and humanity, which is a complete contradiction to those who pretend to, such as western leaders, and even the Pope, who is all about eviscerating individual liberty, and basic human rights.

Then the conversation goes on to klepto-cratic rulers, comparing the Russian rulers to those in the United States.

Then John Bachelor has the audacity to say that at least here, we do it right.

By that, I think he means that little to nothing is left for the actual people, because the government steals everything they can. Apparently, Vladimir Putin is guilty of sharing his profits with those who he rules over.

Those who actually earned it.

I don't think they see the connection between that, and the fact that Russia is now more prosperous, then at anytime in its history.

Steven Cohen then goes on to call Putin "the richest man in the world”. Sorry, but that title goes to Nathan Rothschild, with an estimated worth of $500 trillion,

Of which every penny was stolen, and if you want to look at what the Pope controls, it's twice that at about a quadrillion, but then again, they've been stealing with impunity for a couple of thousand years now.

Compared to the Evil Empire, Vladimír Putin is a mere peasant.

Steven Cohen got a few things right, in that he stated that Vladimír wants his people to live in harmony, and for the most part they do, despite being a widely diversified culture.

In the West, people are routinely and aggressively divided along every imaginable line ever conceived of.

Stephen Cohen's definition of fascism is just flat-out wrong, but if he gave the correct one, the merger of corporate interests and government enforcement, he would too blatantly define the ruling structure of the United States.

And what's this crap about Putin annexing Crimea? 95% of the populace there freely voted to rejoin Russia.

It's these morons that make it sound like Crimea would have preferred to live under Nazi rule, courtesy of the US government takeover, but Putin stole them for his own.

There's only one way to properly represent what's going on here.

Vladimir Putin is standing alone against his own deep state, Zionists, the fourth Reich Nazis, that rule with impunity over Western civilization, and the Vatican.

These are just different labels that address the same completely evil ideology that is hell bent on the destruction of the human race.

Due to thousands of years of blatant propaganda and misdirection, most of planet Earth is now aligned against Russia.

And yet, Russia is self-sufficient, has no external debt, and is a prosperous modern society. It shows what happens when you don't cave to the Evil Empire.

In past times, if you want the historical perspective, such societies have been obliterated, and then erased from history, or at minimum, painted as the bad guys, since it is always the victors who write history.

Russia is too strong for this, and the western oligarchs have stolen so much, they can't even wage an effective war of aggression anymore, because they would get creamed due to their own parasitical appropriations over the centuries.

Yes, we've got the most expensive military in the world, run by a bunch of thieves, who have stolen everything of value, leaving the people who paid for it impoverished, and defenseless.

So far, it's just dumb luck that we haven't been conquered by Russia. But then again, they really aren't interested in taking on an economic and ideological blackhole with no possibility of return on investment.

Well, somebody had to say it.

Did a French frigate shoot down the IL-20

"Russia pointed the finger at a French Navy ship The Auvergne which was in the area at the time it lost contact with its aircraft.

“Russian airspace controls means have detected several missile launches from [a] French frigate in the Mediterranean”, the defence ministry in Moscow said in a statement."

and did Putin make the best of the situation?

Three cheers to you for saying what needs to be said, the truth! Why jolly gag around it? That's for the PC soft crowd that are so easily offended and need their little safe rooms.

Well said Mr. Fix

I would be very interested to hear Stephen Cohen's comments on what you wrote. Perhaps you could email it to him.

Russian response options to the latest Israeli provocation

I think the Saker makes a very good point in regards to the recent attack by Israel and France in Syria.

"Furthermore, there *are* questions which need to be investigated. For example, the Russians have declared that the Russian air defenses and the Syrian ones have now been integrated. Most people don’t realize that an S-200 battery does not just fire by itself or by the decision of the crew. At the very least, this decision is taken by a air defense command post which evaluates the threats and allocates targets. There is a high probability that Russians were also involved in the chain of events which lead to the downing of the Il-20 ".

This does not mean that the people that committed the attack Israel and France do not deserve punishment. But it provides a different light on the situation. The Neo-Con Zio-Tards tried REALLY hard to provoke Russia into a wider scale War. The Russians didn't fall for it. If and when the truth is released the World will see who is behind the possible provocation of WWIII.

Unfortunately, our bought and paid for media will figure out a way to paint Russia and Syria or Iran as the culprit and the talking tits and media will bellow it out to the masses.
