Tucker Carlson’s historic interview with Vladimir Putin has already surpassed 125 million views in less than 24 hours (!!!), and this fact alone measures the communications “coup d’etat” in the Western-dominated media world that has been happening before our eyes since last night.  Vladimir Putin emerged victorious in more ways than we can figure out yet… (Please click here to view the interview or read the transcript.)

Let’s start with the same thoughts that Tucker felt the need to introduce the interview to his audience: Putin’s emphasis on the history of Russia.  Yes, it was too prolonged for the average American or Western audience.  But at the same time, it was also a necessary step as it proved the complete ignorance of our elites on history and geography.  These two elements are the necessary components of any geopolitical analysis.  If you are uneducated in history and geography, you are, by definition, unable to discuss any geopolitical subject – let alone make decisions on these matters. And our elites are ignorant.

I do not need “third-party verification” for such ignorance. I know a few people who are part of the Washington DC journalistic and administrative elites. After Russia “invaded” Crimea in 2014, I asked them one question: Do they realize that the main naval base of the Russian Navy, Sevastopol in Crimea (the equivalent of our Norfolk, Virginia), has continuously served as such for 240 years, since its establishment by Catherine the Great? Nobody of those I asked in DC knew this basic historical fact!!  And this simple thing, my friends, answers most of the questions about why the West failed in Ukraine.  It also answers why Trump so quickly changed course and accepted that Crimea would be left to Russia. He was told of this plain historical fact.  It finally answers why Putin took about thirty minutes to talk about Russian history in the interview with Tucker: It was an educational lesson he had to force on the ignoramuses in the West… A lesson that would set the record straight…

I do not remember how many times I have had to answer about the Russian “illegal invasion” of Crimea… And how many times I had to respond to my Greek friends (who should know better) that they should avoid comparing the Turkish invasion of Cyprus (1974) with the Russian invasion of Crimea.  Well, if Turkey’s main naval base for 240 years was in Kerynia and Greece threatened to take it, then Turkey’s invasion would be justified!! No matter how politically expedient it is to repudiate all invasions, they are not all the same!! Putin, of course, expanded the history lessons, and it was all worth it…

But as he was talking about history, Vladimir Putin revealed his multifaceted personality: his natural intelligence, erudition, vast memory, and skills, and in doing so, he forced a comparison not only with Biden but with all Western leaders.  The competence gap is abysmal: no Western leader can even compare with Vladimir Putin at any level. They are worse than dwarfs next to him.  Great leaders do not need an army of advisers to make simple decisions, and they certainly do not need an army of “communications specialists” to do an interview. Putin is such a great leader in these plain terms.  No notes, no screens – just expressing his thoughts as they come to his mind.

The emphasis on history revealed another undeniable aspect of Putin’s leadership: his patriotism.  As he was describing the “baptism” of the Rus in Kyiv in 980 AD (he avoided mentioning the wedding of Vladimir, King of the Rus, to the Byzantine (Greek) Princess Anna Porpfyrogennita), he emphasized the most fundamental aspect of the Russian identity, Orthodoxy.  This religious element defines the Russian identity, and a simple reading of Dostoyevsky and Tolstoy, among others, quickly proves it. Russian patriotism is inextricably tied to Orthodoxy, and this explains the continued efforts by Victoria Nuland and Geoffrey Pyatt to undermine it. Russia cannot be defeated as long as the Russian soul is anchored in Orthodoxy – period.

In discussing the recent history, President Putin revealed several little-known in the West facts:

  • He had made several offers over the years, starting with the Bushes, for a comprehensive peace between Russia and the West.  They were all rejected, not by the US Presidents but by “the establishment.”
  • Similarly, he reminded that the West violated their leaders’ promises of not expanding NATO eastwards.
  • The West refused to have Russia be part of NATO, which would result in unprecedented peace worldwide.
  • The West initiated the War in Ukraine after the Nuland-Pyatt coup d’etat in 2014 in Kiev’s Maidan Square.
  • Since 2014, the West started attacking and killing Russians in Eastern Ukraine by the tens of thousands.
  • Despite these unfair acts, Russia (along with Germany and France) initiated the Minsk Agreements (which proved to be a trick by the West in order to delay Russia and give Ukraine time to build up).
  • Less than two months after the start of the war, in early April 2022, Russia had agreed with the Kiev regime to a peaceful resolution after the talks in Istanbul – which was initially signed!!.  Part of this process was Russia’s removal of its forces from around Kiev, not the “bravery” of the Ukrainian army. At that fateful moment, the idiotic British PM Boris Johnson, a globalist puppet, arrived in Kiev and told Zelensky “the deal is off”.

To capitalize on such historical background, President Putin, obviously “hurt” by the repeated rejections of the West, as Russia considers itself a European power, reaffirmed that Russia has absolutely no intention of invading any European countries, no Poland, no Estonia, no Latvia or any other country… And why should they? They are the biggest country on Earth and need no more land. They have more natural resources than any other country on Earth, so why invade any country? 

Even after all this, even after describing his disappointment (and let me emphasize here that Putin is the most Westernized of all Russian leaders and has lived in Germany for many years), he proceeded to explain that he wanted a diplomatic deal to end the war in Ukraine.  The fact is that his emphasis throughout the interview on Russia’s repeated efforts towards peace will have a major effect worldwide: it will drop ice on the warmongers of DC who, in their craziness, pursue “War in Ukraine,” “War in Gaza,” “War in Yemen” and “War against Iran” – and let’s not forget Taiwan… And it will likely, along with many other events, as they continue to lose the global “chess game,” lead to a “multipolar” world order.  We all hope this transition will be as smooth as possible, avoiding a nuclear catastrophe.

Putin explained that “Russia cannot be defeated.” He did not mean simply in Ukraine; he meant in general. I am tired of repeating for the last few years to people who should know better that Russia is at least 10 years ahead in missile technology – and this gap keeps widening. How could it be otherwise, with our woke educational system emphasizing “identities” and not proficiency in math? America’s 12 aircraft carrier groups mean absolutely nothing: they are simply nice big targets for Russia’s hypersonic missiles. Unless we re-organize our educational system, we have no chance of competing. (Note: I have done my part, as my two sons are truly exceptional math and computer experts – now we all have to give the fight together).  In the meantime, let’s not forget that the first Russian missile to sink an American warship will be the end of the US hegemony, the end of the US dollar, and possibly the end of the world, as it will inevitably lead to a nuclear disaster.  From this perspective, Putin’s overall attitude during the debate, and in general, looks even more wise than we can tell.  With his multiple peace efforts, he leads Russia and the world in the right direction.

  1. At the risk of not being published, I diverge on the Cyprus, Crimea comparison. Turkey was the master of Cyprus for as long as Russia was of Ukraine. Turkey did not have a naval base in Cyprus, because they were never a naval country. They were also the masters of Greece for 350 years. And had military stationed there. That still does not give them the right to take 40% of Cyprus, or Greece. What right does Russia have? The only way is to ask the people of the Crimea which country they want to belong to. And have neutral countries oversee the election.

    As for Russia wanting to annex part of Ukraine, where there are Russian speakers, because of Ukrainian attacks, let’s not forget that Greek Cypriots were also attacking Turkish Cypriots in the 1960’s and terrorizing them. For Which Turkey was held back from invading by the Americans. If Russia holds onto Ukraine, it justifies Turkey holding unto 40% of Cyprus. That scenario is what Turkey is looking forward to and that’s why she’s playing hard to get with NATO

    • If you are going to make unfounded comparisons of course you risk being spammed. Do you understand the meaning of the word continuously? From 1780 to today? Where is this in Cyprus? Please respect our basic intelligence.
      As for the 1964 intercommunal conflict in Cyprus it has now proven beyond doubt that it was provoked by the Turks and possibly the British. Not to mention that it was Gust Avrakotos the CIA station chief in Athens who in 1974 fooled the leader of the second junta Dimitris Ioannidis promising him that the US wouldn’t allow a Turkish invasion should he overthrow Makarios. Enough of a history lesson for one night.

      • I dont doubt your intelligence. However, this is what you said “Well, if Turkey’s main naval base for 240 years was in Kerynia and Greece threatened to take it, then Turkey’s invasion would be justified!!” While Kyrinia is in Cyprus and not Greece, the comparison is not valid. But if you meant that if Cyprus threatened to take Turkey’s naval base in Kyrinia, Turkey would still not be justified from invading. Because Cyprus is a UN recognized state, as Ukraine is. Both, Cyprus and Ukraine are legal entities, justified to defend their territories. The fact that the Russian base was “grandfathered in” is more reason that, since Ukraine was not an independent nation when the base was established, then, it had no obligation to keep the base on its soil. You’re the one who made the comparison. Not me.

        • Lambros lets end the discussion here. Promise me you will go back and listen to Purim explaining Russian history. These were Russian lands inhabited by Russian people. And this was the Norfolk Virginia of Russia. Let’s assume that the US splits in two – as it is now possible the way this country is divided – and Norfolk Virginia happens to be with the South. This is the real comparison you have to make.

  2. B”H Tucker Carlson is the most odious personality in faux Fox News stable of right-wing propagandists poisoning the American body politic. His resurgent isolationist bent has come to the fore during Russia’s nearly two-year invasion of Ukraine; with it, has evolved a strange betrayal in his transformation from advocating for American and Western mission solidarity to adopting the Russian dictator’s expansionist territorial views which have brought the world to the precipice of the most serious 21st century conflagrations! But give the devil his due, actually both participants in this expansive two-hour interview that President Vladimir Putin shaped by dominating it; with Carlson occasionally tossing a potentially provocative riposte to spark the anticipation of an insightful breakthrough. Truly, Putin’s spin on history, recent and reflecting the more than a millennium existence Russia in various permutations, must evoke irredentist dreams for other authoritarian (Hungary’s Viktor Orban was mentioned) which, if acted upon to reconstitute former national borders could condemn societies to eternal conflicts and score settling. The concluding essence of this semblance of a dialogue is to realize that this latter-day czar, as brutal as his predecessors,searches to conclude a tragic war of his megalomaniac’s making, but hubris and the saving of face prevent it. As hundreds of thousands from both side have found their permanent resting places,one is astounded that a person so historically insignificant has brought us to this impasse.Shabbat shalom. With fraternal affection, Asher 🙏🇺🇦😩🇷🇺😢🇺🇸

    • Asher when it comes to these issues you are extra delusional.. since tomorrow is your Shabbat go pray in your Synagogue that God keeps Putin in power for many years to come and keep him in control of international affairs. If it wasn’t for Putin the 500 million Muslims surrounding Israel would have already swallowed it… right now he and President Zi of China are the only ones who control these Muslims. Even if they used their forks and knives they would eliminate Israel and as you know they have much more than that. Again pray for Putin and for Greece and Cyprus. They are the lifeline of Israel

    • Hey Asher,

      Seeing that you are Jewish, what are your feelings are about Israel’s war in Gaza. Yes, the Oct 7th attack was wrong, but we all know that Netanyahou was instrumental in Hamas’ rise. Because he wanted Gaza to be an enemy of Israel, to keep a Palestinian state from becoming a reality. Moreover, keeping the Palestinians in an open air prison, depending on Israel for all their needs, which Israel cuts off as punishment is not conducive to peace, democracy or human rights. And also, the fact that Israel expends its settlements in the West Bank is just as bad as Russia annexing Crimea and the Donbas region. I understand that Israel won the West Bank in the 1967 war, but, altering the ethnic make up of a territory is against the UN charter.
      Let me know your thoughts

  3. I watched the interview last night. How is this war going to end? Here is a scenario discussed by Tucker and Col MacGregor that I did not consider. This is pretty scarry!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6qHWxnNiDY

    Will US really send troops to Ukraine once Ukraine is depleted of solders to continue this war? It is hard if not impossible to defeat Russia. Those of us that know history realized from the beginning that Ukraine can’t defeat Russia.

    • Yes , linda they will !these people are fanatics ! The standard protocal of the Pentagon is to sponsor proxy armies like Alqueda and ISisl to wge war on the countries of the Middle East ..like libya , Syrai , Iraq, Afganistan,, Ukraine and impose economic Sanctions of them , like Madeleign Albright did with Clinto in Iraw, and resulted in 500.000 children dying for lack of medicines and food , then the come in ..if the Regime change is not working . to finish the job ,like in Yugoslavia , Syria, Iraq . lybia! Remember Hillary Clinton famous rant , after terrorist cut the throat of the leader of libya …”WE CAME , WE SAW. DIED ! AND SO DID THE ENTIRE COUNTRY AND POPULIST OF LIBYA ! LINDA …AMERICA HAS ALWAYS BEEN A DEGENERATE SOCIETY AND THE “EVANGELICAL LAWMAKERS” ARE RESPONSIBLE !

      • Maybe so, Michael. But there are other actors that are Putin’s allies in the picture that have extraordinary armies and would step in. I would think this is a deterrence to US from proceedings heads on without a brain. So I think the situation is more complex. And every great empire in the history failed. I hope those that make decisions about war know history.

        • IN RESPONSE TO MICHAEL: Michael I gave you plenty of space. You have made your point about Zionism a hundred times. I think it is enough. When the occasion arises you can adjust your argument again . It is better for argumentation purposes and for a better debate to focus your comments and limit them to one paragraph or 70-80 words.

          • Gert over it, Helleniscope.. When the leaders of America.. Joe Biden and Anthony Blinken, and Jewish and Evangelical lawmakers Zelensky, and Netanyahue criminally boast of being part of Criminal Organization or Enterprise called ..Zionism. then the foundation of all my posts , and not different than Jewish and Evangelical Media identifying the Nazi’s, Marxist , Socialist , and Capitalist in all newspaper articles, movies, museums, and commemorative holidays, while Jewish and Evangelical Zionist Lawmakers … litterally have legislated resolution that call Anti Zionism , acts of Anti Semitism !
            Zionism is to Jews of Israel, as Nazism was to the Germans of Nazi Germany…period! However , you can refer to my post to Larissa as the best I can do ..in terms of adjustment! If you wish you can reject all my posts ..but that will not change my commitment to bring truth to the most mortal threat to mankind ever!

          • TO MICHAEL AND LAMBROS: I am posting your latest comments and I am asking you to take a break. You can apply your ideas on the issues of the day without repeating the same tune over and over again. It is NOT good for the discussion we need to have – it is not good for Helleniscope.

          • Hey Nick. I see that you lump me in with Michael, as posting the same thing day in day out. That’s incredible. Michael is unhinged. All he ever writes is about the Zionists and evangelical fascists, marxists and socialists. I dont write anything similar to that. I always stick to the news of the day. Its up to you to publish whatever you deem appropriate, but, please, dont put me on the same lever as Michael.

          • I am trying to keep the dialogue at appropriate levels. That’s why I asked for a timeout… Maybe I can introduce you too so you can go at it privately?

  4. Go Putin! Go Mother Russia!
    I remember reading Sophie Burnham’s incredible book on Angel sightings … this one stood out:

    *This Russian Cosmonaut incident was deemed top secret by old Soviet Union and the space crew was cautioned not to speak of it:

    In July 1984, six Soviet Russian cosmonauts aboard Salyut 7 space station, on day 155 reported seeing a mesmerizing, bright orange light enter space capsule from outside which temporarily blinded the crew, but when their vision returned all the cosmonauts reported to ground control they saw the faces of 7 giant Angels – they had humanoid figures with haloes and wings as big as jumbo jets… the Angels kept pace with the space station for 10 minutes before vanishing!!

    On day 167, a new crew of three more Cosmonauts joined Salyut 7 and once again like clockwork, the bright orange light enveloped the capsule; as they looked outside the portholes, again they were joined by the 7 gigantic Angels – the three new cosmonauts described these Angels as big as jet airliners!!

    • Zoey, you crack me up! You hit the nail on the Putin! God will protect Mother Russia and all the Christian Orthodox living there. It has been prophesied by our holy elders, (Greek and Russia). Putin gave us all an amazing history lesson, whilst showing his love and pride for his beloved country. This year will be the year of many changes; I pray for a nonviolent world shift/transition into conservatism, and overall peace on earth.

      • If you are part of team Jesus, and you’re looking forward to “conservatism”, do you consider Jesus to have been a conservative? Do you think conservatives, whoever they might be, are peaceful because they are following Jesus? Bush the 2nd was a conservative. He started two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

        • Hey Lambros ..why do you refer Evangelical George Bush Jr. , and Tony Blair as a Conservatives.! What do yo call the Clinton Crime family who started the Wars in Iraq, before Bush Jr. finished them off , and what about the Hilary Clinton State Department war on libya… where she confessed that after watching her state sponsored terrorist group cut the throat of the leader of libya and screamed with delight on National T.V. “WE CAME , WE Saw , He died and so did the people of libya! Now that is the face of All the Fascist Neo Cons of the U.S. Republican and Democratic Party! Let me help you …the real conservatives are Tucker Carlson who are called “Isolationist” for no being a “Patriot of Jow Biden and his cabal of depraved War mongers and War Criminals ! Today Protestors interrupted Hillary Clinton Speach ..to reming her that she is “A war Criminal for doing what she did to libya and the Middle East ! You see the fallout from the Biden wars in the Middle East and Ukraine are beginning to put a real face on the Evangelcial Neo Cons or Zionist as a very organized criminal enterprise who has fooled the world to believe that they are not just fascist , but “Righteous Soldiers of God ” entitled to save the world , even if they have to kill all of Humanity! And Lambros you sell this on this site ! What should we call you?

  5. Why are Dems being so intent and in lockstep with all this is beyond the beyond– Baffling- really baffling – how many times are they willing to re-write both history and the basic fundamentals found in the Constitution? The Fat Lady has already sung!

    • lARISSA … PENTAGON PAPERS, DURHAM REPORT , TWITTER FILES , WEAKI LEAKS, RUSSIAGATE , HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE , AND INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT AT THE HAGUE AND MINISTER OF JUSTICE OF ISRAEL

      THE FBI AND JUSTICE DEPARTMENT COLLUDE WITH RACIST EVANGELICAL AND JEWISH ZIONIST MEMBERS OF THE REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC POLITICAL ORGANIZATION AND MEDIA OF AMERICA TO COMMIT CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY , WAR CRIMES , CRIMES AGAINST PEACE BY RUNNING A “RACKETEERING AND PROTECTION RACKET SCHEME” TO DOMINATE THE ECONOMIC , POLITICAL AND MILITARY MONOPOLY ON THE ENTIRE WORLD!

      THIS CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE …”USES RELIGION, MEDIA, US. TREASURY, MILITARY AND OPPRESSION OF THE U.S CONSTITUTION, INTERNATIONLA LAWS , AND NUREMBURG TRIBUNAL CODES AND LAWS AND MOST IMPORTANTLY CONTROL OF THE LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES OF AMERICA AND ISRAEL IN THE COMMISSIO OF THESE CRIMES.!

      lARISSA…TRANSLATION…THE RULING EVANGELCIAL ZIONIST PARTIES OF AMERICA ARE NOTHING MORE THAN “COMPETIGN CRIME FAMILIE’ TO LIE, CHEAT AND STEAL , AND MURDER TO CONTROL AMERICA AND THE WORLD!! THEY ARE FANATICAL RELIGIOUS EVANGELICAL..WHO JUSTIFY THEIR CRIMES BY TELLING THEMSELVES THAT GOD TOLD THEM TO DOMINATE AND SAVE THE WORLD , WHEN THEY PARTNER UP TO DESTROY IT ! THAT IS IT LARISSA , THERE IS NO DEEP STATE …”THE RULLING POLITICAL PARTIES MUST BE “DISMANTLED”!
