For those of you not sick unto death of Bloomberg machinations, today’s headline about Vladimir Putin should be icing on the cake.
“What Putin Wrought Has World Asking What Russia Might Have Been.”
Really now? And it took not one, but two brilliant Bloomberg authors to put this upside-down reality into focus. Simon Kennedy and Henry Meyer paint a picturesque past with their lead in, Putin and then Britain PM Tony Blair (Who’s clearly a madman) dancing amid daffodils, chanting “world peace, world peace, we’ll soon have world peace.” Humbug. However harmonious a relationship President Putin tried to foster with the west these last 10 years, it was the successors to whacked out crook Tony Blair that soured the deal. I quote from the authors on paradise lost over Ukraine:
“Putin began turning away from his new friends as early as 2003, and accelerated the retreat as his third term in the Kremlin got under way in 2012. He cracked down on dissidents, curbed economic freedoms and, this year, fomented the rebellion in eastern Ukraine.”
Then, after conjuring imagery of Dr. Zhivago meets Marry Poppins in our heads, the two economic wizards jump on the bandwagon of Putin bashers intent on shifting blame, I guess. To be honest the mainstream has become so awash with BS like this these last few months, only the avid investments types can possibly have a clue as to what is true or false. What is certainly true is, everybody in Washington, New York and London who invests, is investing in chaos these days. As for Bloomberg’s international economics man in London, Kennedy whistles; “buy, buy, buy” over Ukraine, Syria, and Gaza. Funny thing, I wonder if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (below right)reads his columns? She was tuned to Wall Street and Russia stocks before bashing Putin over MH17! And only hours after the dead people fell from the sky. If she’s swerving news to influence the ticker, that would go to show you don’t have to have a stock portfolio to profit from the margins. Sorry Hillary, but it’s smart, just not that smart.
Putin has so far caused everything from global warming to the fleas on Obama’s dog. And if Henry Meyer at Bloomberg had anything to say about Putin’s guilt, the Russian president would already be six feet under some gulag. This guy is a Russophobe of monumental proportions in my view. In a recent interview Meyer attempts to draw another lopsided caricature in describing reporting from Ukraine. Despite the fact the pro-Russians are not the ones taking press hostages, Meyer sees fit to portray freedom fighters in the east as the “dangerous” ones in Ukraine. Funny, no Kiev civilians have as of yet been shelled to death. Meyer has been on Putin’s case since the proverbial cows came home. Or since Putin nixed the Israel-US Syria coup d’etat Obama was planning on. Oh boy, don’t get me started.
Anyway, my take on the sold out western media is no big secret. People like me, those intent on seeing a fair shake for one and all, we don’t stand a chance against the likes of the Bloombergs of the world. Anyone who disagrees with their lies and machinations, he or she gets the “paid off in rubles” routine. These kinds of misleading articles really make me sick. Putin may be no angel, but compared to the sellouts and corporate killers in charge in the west, he’s St. Peter himself. I guess what makes me even more disgusted is, most Americans believe these clowns.
And that’s my Tuesday rant on world politics.
