Timing: Putin Interview Airs on NBC News One Day After Dems Organize #MarchforTruth
However, after making the mistake of letting Putin be a peacemaker by giving him a full guest column in the New York Times to advocate for the peaceful dismantling of Syria’s chemical weapons arsenal in 2013, when some elements of the Obama Administration and Washington were looking for a way out of an unpopular war against Damascus, the legacy media was not about to give Vlad too much run time again. At least, not without former Fox News Channel turned NBC News blonde Megyn Kelly hammering away with the ludicrous Democrat Party/deep state ‘Russia hacked the 2016 election’ Narrative over and over.
In reply to Megyn's earnest hectoring, Vlad smirked and mocked the weak to non-existent ‘evidence’ supporting the Establishment’s ‘muh Russians’ conspiracy theory amidst laughter at his hometown St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. Megyn of course, and her fellow journalists were not amused as Washington’s line was laughed at by affluent Russians and invited guests from across Eurasia alike. But as the pick up artists would say, Putin refused to accept the fading blonde charmer Megyn’s ‘frame’, but kept using humor if not ridicule against her repetition of the ‘seventeen intelligence agencies’ party line.
What is Putin Preparing the Russian and Western Peoples For With These Interviews?
First, the Russian Analyst would like to take a step back and ask a question: why are we seeing this media blitz by Putin agreeing to so many interviews with the Western press now? It was a question we discussed over the weekend in a telephone conversation with Team RogueMoney’s mentor, W the Intelligence Insider, who worked toward the endgame of the first Cold War in the Reagan era.
The conclusion we came to in our conversation was this: Putin sees more storm clouds over the horizon, both financial and conflict-related for the West, and wants to present himself as reasonable as possible to Americans and Europeans ahead of the deluge. What exactly the oncoming events will look like, besides more terror attacks of the Nice, Manchester and London bridges variety, remains to be seen.
The Russian Analyst concurs with Mr. W’s view that the defeat of ISIS in Raqqa, Mosul and the Syraqi deserts may set the stage for more direct clashes between the Iranian-allied and Russian-advised Syrians with Hezbollah on one side, and the Israelis and possibly Americans pitted against them in the next Mideast war. We discussed a late September to October Jewish high holidays opening window for such clashes in our Syraq SITREP 16, published on May 30, 2017.
Since then, Russia Insider contributor Marko Marjanovic has warned that American forces digging in at exposed outposts along the Syraqi border to oppose Iranian-backed Shi’a militias from taking back the territory for Damascus could be staging for an incident. Especially when American air strikes have already hit pro-Syrian government forces while the Russians have bombed the vetted ‘moderate rebels’ armed and trained by the U.S. The Russian Analyst suspects such posturing egged on by a fiercely anti-Iranian Secretary of Defense James Mattis will end in either a stalemate or the negotiated pullback of U.S. troops to Jordan. Nonetheless, the situation bears watching as the potential for a false flag attack on American soldiers that could be blamed on Assad, Hezbollah or even the Russians remains high, especially with the Americans now setting up another (illegal under international law, as it lacks any permission from the recognized Syrian government to do so) outpost northeast of Al-Tanf at Al-Zkuf.
Putin Talking JFK Assassination Deep State Blues to a Prime Time American Audience
Putin’s sit down with Megyn Kelly both as the moderator of the SPIEF and the separate interview with NBC News came days after a lengthy sit down with reporters from the French newspaper Le Figaro. Putin’s statements to the French journalists were more significant, and in our opinion reflected a greater willingness to recognize the reality of globalist players behind geopolitics, than what followed. However, there is a certain logical consistency to Putin’s messaging to the western and wider world in both interviews.
Zerohedge cited Putin’s reference during his discussion with Megyn Kelly to the widespread belief among Americans (as revealed by Gallup polls) that there was a conspiracy to assassinate President John F. Kennedy (left unsaid by Putin in this instance, was a major motive of the November 1963 Deep State plotters: after the near death experience of the Cuban Missile Crisis and the secret hotlines established to defuse it, JFK wanted to ease tensions with the Soviet Union). Putin made a connection between the implication that the Deep State killed JFK and the unstated Wikileaks Vault 7 revelations that the ‘signatures’ of Russian or Ukrainian hackers were now ‘in the wild’ available to CIA for false flag cyber attacks:
There is a theory that Kennedy's assassination was arranged by the United States intelligence services. So if this theory is correct, and that can't be ruled out, then what could be easier in this day and age than using all the technical means at the disposal of the intelligence services and using those means to organize some attacks, and then pointing the finger at Russia...
Naturally, Putin’s hint that JFK was assassinated by a CIA-spearheaded cabal will elicit furious reactions on Twitter from ex-spooks and their #TrumpRussia theorizing fanboys and girls. They will insist that Putin is, like the RT channel he supposedly directs from the Kremlin via direct line to director Margarita Simonyan, promoting a conspiratorial worldview. By which the supposedly ironclad conclusions of ’17 intelligence agencies’ (in reality, three dictating a top-down Narrative to the rest) by contrast cannot remotely be called a conspiracy theory, despite the complete absence of evidence that Russia altered or decisively influenced a single vote in the 2016 presidential contest. And yet, Megny Kelly and her former colleague Shephard Smith at Fox News insist on using the conspiratorially-loaded terminology of ‘Russia hacking the election’ -- despite never defining how it would be or was possible to 'hack' the U.S. election.
Such teleprompter loaded, Deep State-directed agitprop ‘Russia hacked the election’ language goes to show, as the Russian Analyst has been writing since Hillary Clinton’s vast Putinist/AltRight conspiracy speech of August 2016, that the globalist Establishment and their media mouthpieces have embraced a ‘conspiracy theory for me but not for thee’ posture. But the Narrative is by their own admission, failing to attract younger audiences or completely ‘debunk’ the massive influx of supposedly toxic, Kremlin-directed narratives aka any facts or traditional belief systems that undermine faith and trust in an Anglo-American dominated world order. Hence the discussions at Bilderberg and other forums about ‘the war on information’ which Washington views as an insurgency waged by Russia, China, Iran and non-state actors like WikiLeaks against the U.S.-EU’s weakening grip on global information and worldviews.
Putin on Mythical French and German National Sovereignty and Subservience to Washington
Continuing in the theme of Putin dropping hints at the men behind the curtains, the Le Figaro interview made at the recently opened Russian Orthodox church and cultural center in Paris delivered even more material to believers in the ‘New World Order’ theory of deep politics than the Kelly interview. In the context of discussing meetings with newly inaugurated French President Emmanuel Jean-Michel Frédéric Macron, who made Trump and Russia bashing the center of his globalist media promoted campaign, Putin suggested to the assembled press that the French were not free to pursue an independent policy in Syria or the broader Middle East.
In other words, shortly after Macron bashed RT and Sputnik as peddlers of lies and propaganda, Putin responded by politely calling the once Gaullist and proud French poodles kept on leashes of the American empire, whose barking about bombing Assad if he dares use chemical weapons can be interpreted as just that -- toothless barking. Putin would return to this theme of sovereignty days later in his SPIEF remarks to ‘moderator’ Megyn, telling the audience that German Chancellor Angela Merkel resents Russia and his leadership for demonstrating sovereignty not permitted to post-war Germany.
Putin hints ‘we don’t see NATO falling apart...just yet...NATO is an instrument of US foreign policy’
If there is one thing Putin and Trump would seem to share, aside from their supposed ‘bromance’ which rests on the foundation of having never met face to face, it would appear to be contempt for the pretense of a strong and independent European Union which is in reality a hollow transnational shell. By using the bully pulpit of the presidency to berate NATO’s leading states for failing to carry their weight within the alliance’s funding -- leaving that job to Uncle Sam -- The Donald has exposed the globalist pretense of NATO as an alliance of sovereign nations rather than 'vassals' in Putin's words, of the Americans.
The sad truth is that NATO and the EU are do not deserve to be treated with any respect at all. Trump’s condescension is fully deserved. Worse, the Americans don’t even have to pretend to take the Europeans seriously because, for the past decade, the latter have sheepishly obeyed the most ridiculous and even self-defeating orders from the Americans.
Truly, Victoria Nuland’s famous words about ‘[F---] the EU’ were expressing something of an American consensus about the Old Continent.

Will the Deep State Ever Allow Trump to End the Second Cold War in Peace?
Putin Hints at Globalists in ‘Ties with Briefcases’ Saying Nyet to U.S.-Russia Detente
In last month’s interview with Le Figaro, Putin made what is likely his most important statement to the French and Western publics, when he discussed (after an aside about a Kievan princess named Anna forming part of the European monarchies bloodlines, sparking a Twitter spat with the Ukrainian government which claims itself to be the modern successor the medieval Kievan Rus) the so-called Deep State. Or as Putin referred to them, the men in dark suits, or as they are called in some translations, men with ties carrying briefcases. What’s in those briefcases, Putin did not tell the French journalists -- perhaps it is, as some have long speculated (especially given Putin’s later reference to the JFK assassination in another interview) a copy of the Zapruder film.
Putin says the entrenched bureaucracy did not permit President Obama to close the indefinite detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, and implies it’s not allowing Trump to fulfill his campaign promise of better relations with Russia:
I have already spoken to three US Presidents. They come and go, but politics stay the same at all times. Do you know why? Because of the powerful bureaucracy. When a person is elected, they may have some ideas. Then people with briefcases arrive, well dressed, wearing dark suits, just like mine, except for the red tie, since they wear black or dark blue ones. These people start explaining how things are done. And instantly, everything changes. This is what happens with every administration.
Changing things is not easy, and I say this without any irony. It is not that someone does not want to, but because it is a hard thing to do. Take Obama, a forward-thinking man, a liberal, a democrat. Did he not pledge to shut down Guantanamo before his election? But did he do it? No, he did not.
And may I ask why not? Did he not want to do it? He wanted to, I am sure he did, but it did not work out. He sincerely wanted to do it, but did not succeed, since it turned out to be very complicated.
This is not the main issue, however, even though it is important, since it is hard to fathom that people have been walking there in chains for decades without trial or investigation. Can you imagine France or Russia acting this way? This would have been a disaster. But it is possible in the United States and continues to this day. This refers to the question on democracy, by the way.
I referred to this example just to show that it is not as simple as it may seem.
The Bankers from the Tower of Basel:
Putin’s Now Retired Adviser Lt. Gen. Leonid Reshetnikov and Kremlin Views of the ‘NWO’
Team RogueMoney’s Intelligence Insider ‘W’ had a slightly different take on the identities of the men in dark suits with blue (rather than red, according to Putin) silk ties and briefcases. And that is these men represent the bankers, from the leaning tower of Basel, who need the U.S. against Russia in a dialectical confrontation to implement their ‘New World Order’ agenda. W added that the threat against Trump is not so much physical assassination as it is the continued obstruction of any meaningful presidency via the media hyped #TrumpRussia Deep State campaign and the threat of an interest rate hike by the Fed. Such a rate hike would, of course, shatter the legacy media myth of recovery since the 2008 crash and send even the plunge protection team and 'dollar safe harbor' inflated markets tumbling. So in addition to physical threats against his person or family members and '#Russiagate', The Donald also has to contend with the money power pushing him to go along with a certain Mideast agenda -- though one that now appears complicated by the Saudi-Qatari spat Trump has partially claimed credit for on Twitter.
One need not accept that Putin sees the NWO in the same terms as our very own ‘W’ to recognize that Russia’s president is a believer in some sort of globalist shadow government, even if operating at a lower level than stated by Putin’s retired KGB/SVR Lieutenant General adviser Leonid Reshetnikov. Bloomberg contributor Leonid Bershidsky, himself a Russian liberal critic of Putin based in Germany, complained in a column that too many Russians were believers in the idea of a trans or supranational conspiracy to dismember their country and loot its rich natural resources.
Mr. Reshetnikov, for those RogueMoney readers who have been following our work since 2015, recently retired as the head of the Kremlin’s own answer to the RAND Corporation, the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies (RISS). Reshetnikov was 'linked' by western media/propaganda outlets such as The New York Times and RFE/RL to an alleged coup d’etat in Montenegro, on the eve of the former Yugoslav republic’s election of a pro-NATO prime minister (the same Dusko Markovic brushed aside by President Trump at the NATO meeting this year). The Russian Foreign Ministry scoffed at the coup plot allegations, while local opponents of the tiny country joining NATO dismissed the whole thing as a fabrication cooked up by the Montenegrin government.
Back in 2015, looking ahead to this year’s centennial of the Wall Street and City of London sponsored Bolshevik revolution in Russia, Leonid Petrovich Reshetnikov, who is far more deserving of the title ‘Putin’s brain’ than Alexandr Dugin, had this to say:
Leonid Petrovich, you are a former intelligence agent and, therefore, an informed person. How true are the conspiracy theories about the world government? For example, there is a theory that the competing clans of the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds are behind everything that happens in Russia. One clan brought about the revolution of 1917, the other one was responsible for Perestroika…
When someone speaks ironically about conspiracy theories I always say: “Look, the whole world history consists of conspiracies!”. But you should not be carried away with only these two names. There are influential people who are trying to make the world more manageable. National states are destroyed. Now they are tackling Europe. I consider this flow of refugees very suspicious – it is organized artificially. These flows consist primarily of young 30 year old men. Strong men! This is no coincidence. Europe is in for a fun ride.
Who are these influential people?
Financiers, industrialists, heads of multinational corporations. People without nationality, cosmopolitans. They are very ideological as our Bolsheviks or the French revolutionaries. You need to keep this in mind to understand their motives. Even profit is not the main thing for them. They are the Antichrist.
Do they serve “black mass” ?!
Perhaps, but not necessarily. What is important is that they are trying to destroy the traditional world, attitudes and values. They are consciously fighting with God. In our country, many people call themselves atheists, but, in fact, they are not. They do not go to the church, but they have, as they say, the fear of God, they believe they are not allowed to do as they please. But those people we are talking about – they really think so. They deem themselves to be above everyone else, they are the rulers of the world and of the universe. They are the chosen ones. And God is no authority for them. All evil and negative characters on the world stage over the past three or four hundred years are of their making.
Some people believe that England is behind all the troubles of the world. There is even an expression – “the Englishwoman shits”.
There is certain truth to this. A lot of bad stuff originated there. They were the first to renounce the Church creating their own Anglican church for the sake of another king, Henry VIII, to make it possible for him to marry his mistress. All sorts of secret societies and so on. Their former colony – the United States – adopted many such things. But it is not a matter of countries anymore. I am sure that Democrat Obama and Republican Bush are patriots of their country. They are even believers. But the people whose interests they represent do not care about the interests of the United States. If it seems to them that the world system is no longer effective, they will break it easily. They will sacrifice America for their interests [this point, that the City of London is intent on breaking up or tossing the United States of America aside when it no longer is useful to the globalists intact, is a point W the Intelligence Insider has made - JWS].
Who are the members of this anti-Christian Politburo?
They are always in the shadows. You know, I have met people whose names you never see in the Forbes lists. But their fortunes are in the hundreds of billions. Bill Gates is a child compared to them. It is extremely difficult to fight those who are in the shadows. But we have to be honest, to bravely and consistently defend our principles and our country. And we will win!
EPILOGUE 06/06/2017 4 p.m. Eastern time:
While it's not clear that Putin entirely shares the 'Orthodox Rus vs. the New World Order' mindset of the former Kremlin sponsored think tank chief Reshetnikov, it's fair to say there are reasons why Leonid Petrovich's anti-NWO statements never made it into the NYT or RFE/RL. It is also unlikely to be a coincidence, as this article 'went to press', that the National Security State chose to disclose the 'leak' of a highly classified assessment of Russian military intelligence supposedly hacking state elections officials by a 25-year-old NSA contractor, one day after elements of the US IC were angered by Putin rubbishing their #MuhRussia Narrative on NBC News...
