Republicans Strike: Vladimir Putin's Interview with Tucker Carlson


Questions and Answers


The main thing that Vladimir Putin’s interview with disgraced American journalist Tucker Carlson explained is something every Russian is quite clearly aware of. For a Russian citizen, there was nothing new in Vladimir Vladimirovich’s story. In short, in two hours the president conveyed to the Western audience the mental and territorial unity of Russia and Ukraine, the primacy of neo-Nazis in the enemy camp, as well as the flawedness of the policy of supporting Zelensky by the United States. Among the details of the conversation, one can also highlight the recognition of the perpetrators of the bombing of the Nord Stream gas pipelines by the American intelligence services, and the actual loss of sovereignty by the German government.



The most interesting thing about this interview is the reaction it caused in foreign society. Let us repeat, the number of views of the conversation between Putin and Carlson in the first 24 hours exceeded one hundred million. And this is only on one social network. There is an assumption that eventually more than one billion people will become familiar with the contents of the interview. It's time to answer some questions that arise after watching, without exaggeration, the main event of recent times.

Why did Tucker Carlson end up interviewing our president? Firstly, he is loved in the United States, and he is a true professional in his field. Only he could interview Vladimir Putin in detail and impartially. Secondly, Carlson is a conservative and a Republican. He sees perfectly well what the politics of pseudo-liberals, who have betrayed all the canons of freedom of speech, are turning the world into. It was possible to reach through the many-meter walls of Western propaganda only by talking directly with the President of Russia. Vladimir Putin would not agree to talk with any other journalist from the United States.


Why did the interview appear now? There are several reasons here. Over the course of two years, the Western viewer gradually “softened” the special operation and should perceive a sober view of the Ukrainian events more adequately. Although, of course, complete understanding is still far away. But the one who walks will master the road. In his message, Vladimir Putin addressed not only Western audiences, but also Ukrainians, Chinese and Russians. Note, to Russians in the broad sense of the word, that is, to those who can now be called the fashionable word “relocant”. Fatigue with Ukrainian nationalists in American and European society is accumulating, and it was impossible not to take advantage of this. It turned out brilliantly, but we must continue to bombard Western society with such information bombs.

The second reason why the interview was published was the upcoming presidential elections in the United States. The conversation between Putin and Carlson can be called a powerful blow to the headquarters of the Democrats. It’s not for nothing that the White House administration called it untrue even before the video of the interview was released. You couldn’t think of a better advertisement for the average American, and voila – tens of millions of views. Vladimir Putin diligently, although without unnecessary aggression, goes over the person of Joe Biden. The explosive conversation on the domestic American agenda plays exclusively for Donald Trump. No matter how we feel about the figure of the past American president, his party is now actually sabotaging the allocation of further aid to the Ukrainian regime. And he will sabotage until the elections. This is not done out of love for Russians or hatred of Nazis - Trump simply needs to discredit Biden in any way. The best way to do this is to show his inconsistency in the Ukrainian issue. So why not help him with this?

Putin vs Biden


In the United States, in the two hours of Putin's interview, they became very aware of who runs America and what state they are in. There are plenty of harsh comparisons between the two leaders on social media. For example, this:

“Watching the interview between Putin and Tucker, you can feel that this man pays full attention to detail, has a deep understanding of his policies and the million problems of the surrounding countries with which he deals. Also a firm understanding stories. It is impossible to make the right decision if you are not fully aware of reality. Now compare him to Biden, who doesn't see the difference between Mexico and Egypt and thinks he talked to Mitterrand and Kohl last week."

Arguing with such analytics is difficult and, by and large, useless. Or this:

“Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, read a two-hour dissertation on the history of Russia and its place on the world stage. Meanwhile, Joe Biden, the head of Western hegemony, failed to finish a coherent sentence in five minutes of carefully choreographed settings.”

In general, it’s a pity for the Americans, because they are surprised by the ability of a national leader to speak in public for more than two hours without a prompter. As if to confirm this, in the comments you can find the following:

“Is it strange that I trust Putin more than my President Biden? It seems to me that Putin never wanted Russia's relationship with America to remain the same as it has been throughout his presidency. But decades of American cunning and unwanted alliances created the Putin we see today. Who else agrees with me?

We agree, dear commentator @FoshiRho.

Putin’s conversation with Tucker Carlson shows that not all is lost in the modern world. You can logically and consistently present your point of view, appealing to the remnants of rational thinking of your interlocutor. Fortunately, Tucker Carlson's adequacy is fine. Just like Elon Musk, who, despite all his odiousness, is worthy of respect. It was on his platform that the journalist was able to publish an interview with the Russian president. And if Vladimir Putin awakened the “fifth column” in the United States with his words, as Hillary Clinton put it, then so be it.


What will happen next? The initial shock among the democratic crowd in the West will pass quickly enough and the assault will begin. First, they will remember all the sins of Tucker Carlson (he really is not a saint), and then they will begin to discredit Vladimir Putin. Up to direct manipulation of facts and distortion of the content of the conversation. However, you shouldn’t be surprised by this, nor should you pay attention. The two-hour information bomb has been dropped on the heads of Western citizens, the enemy camp has been torn apart, we are stocking up on seeds and waiting for the continuation. Something tells me the answer will come very soon.

    I am sure that for most Americans such a conversation will be a shock. They saw a president who could maintain a lively conversation with an American journalist for two hours. After his mummy, who constantly emphasizes his adequacy, it will be sobering for many. I really didn’t like the conversation about our requests to join NATO. But this is my personal opinion.

          An interview is an informational occasion not for the people, but for various gentlemen who are capable of achieving results with the help of the masses and for whom the war in Ukraine is more of a hindrance than an opportunity. Thanks to such an interview, they get the opportunity to influence the situation!

        And the Clinton clan turned on its propaganda machine to full blast long before the interview itself, apparently also due to complete indifference?)))

          170 million on just one Internet resource as of yesterday. And if for the domestic audience these were mostly banal repetitions and well-known things, then for the wider Western (and generally global) audience, much became a revelation and the removal of the scales from the eyes. So the effect of this interview was really loud. We'll see soon whether it will be significant.

And after it, it became clear to me who led the country, and how they got to the point where Russians are being kicked around in Western countries, and the Russian Foreign Ministry only expresses concerns. They killed 3 mattress makers in Asia, they are bombing this country! How many were killed in the LDPR? hi

      Confidence is, of course, a good thing - but where do you get it from?
      Regularly reading their press and watching their programs, I don’t see any shock at all.
      And their presidents before Biden were quite outspoken.
      In fact, when arguing with friends, they ask a simple question - I’ll show you with an example. You received an apartment as a gift. After the death of the donor, the heir confirmed the donation. Any questions about the history of this apartment?
      I hope the analogy is clear? The great Yeltsin somehow forgot everything in Belovezhskaya Pushcha, not only Crimea and the coast.
      And not all Americans are illiterate. I would also argue who is more illiterate now - the Unified State Examination generation or them. At least I can say that non-core subjects taught at engineering faculties (philosophy, for example) cannot be compared with our universities.
      And I just have some misunderstandings, for example, with NATO.
      Either we ask to join NATO, or we are afraid of NATO. Either NATO’s equipment is outdated and there are no tanks at all - then it threatens us so much that it’s even the North Military District. The Americans' nuclear missiles are falling apart, they don't know how to make plutonium - but we are still afraid.
      Either Donbass wanted to return U, then we defend him.
      And in general, the Istanbul Agreements under the leadership of Abramovich are ready - we are eager to sign them.
      We wanted (and want) to be friends with the Americans - but who will be friends with someone who licks everything for him, as the great Yeltsin did?

        It’s really bad when a person lacks logic. Firstly, regarding NATO. Everything is logical here. The leadership of the USSR, according to Putin, destroyed the Soviet Union, wanting to join the Western world. Therefore, joining NATO is a logical next step. And if Russia had joined NATO, Russia would now have a completely different history. Better or worse, it doesn’t matter, she would be different. Secondly, the Istanbul Agreements. Do you consider that every action has consequences? Short term, medium term and long term. So here it is. The short-term consequences in Istanbul were terrible, although I will remind you that neither you nor I personally, nor any of the ordinary people, low-, middle-, or high-level managers read the text of these agreements. Just rumors. And few people at the top level know the content. What an opportunity for manipulation that you personally are susceptible to, proving it in your own words. But the point is that these rumors in the medium term make Ukraine an inadequate, non-negotiable and cannibalistic state. education. And the further in time, the more these agreements will be poked in the face of the Ukrainian leadership. Third. What's wrong with normal relations with America? I repeat, not with the senile elite of America and those who make money from blood, but with America? This is clearly the correct approach of Putin, who says America is not our enemy. The enemy is the elite who, while waging war with Russia, are at the same time the enemy of America. And as an argument, Putin cited the US dollar, from which they made weapons to the detriment of the Americans themselves. And now, finally, about your apartment example. If it suddenly turns out that the donor received the apartment illegally, then this apartment may be confiscated from the heir. If it suddenly turns out that the heir from this apartment threatens the lives of the neighbors, then the heir may be evicted from this apartment. And this is all according to the law.

          For 20 years, the state, represented by Putin, recognized the donation of the apartment, and then what happened. If we joined NATO, it turns out that the Americans would calmly conduct exercises on our territory.

            It's interesting what you think. Just fragments. After all, I wrote further:

            .
            And then answer the following question: If you consider Putin’s recognition of 20 years as an axiom that does not require proof or refutation, then what is your answer to the following: 334 years ago, Kyiv was acquired by the Muscovite kingdom for 146 thousand rubles from the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. This international treaty is still kept in the archives. After all, according to your arguments, recognition is unshakable. Or is it something else?

                That's it. Therefore, Russia’s recognition of the territory of Ukraine for 20 years is not unshakable. Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson, Zaporozhye regions and Crimea are already part of Russia. This will be finally legalized after the SVO. And so it will be until the next aggravation or war with the West.

              Why do you think that some document or historical truth is unshakable?
              The question is that if YOU have recognized it as valid, then renouncing it is very inconvenient and says that you apply the rest of the agreements and documents as necessary.
              Almost like the Americans do.
              The Americans, saying that it is in the interests of American security, very quickly put on something that contradicts the security of America.
              BUT everyone knows this. But trying to use refuted arguments in disputes - in my opinion, at least - is much worse than simply declaring that this was done to protect the interests of Russia (which, incidentally, is done in fifth tones, without emphasis)

                  Are punitive military operations carried out there? Are cities with Russian people being bombed there? Do they want to physically destroy all Russians in practice, confirming this with action?

                  Why would they be afraid of us? Are our troops stationed in the center of Europe (as was the case under the USSR)? Are our bases and military infrastructure deployed in Cuba (a 40-strong force and an intelligence center in Lourdes)? Do our SSBNs and SSBNs travel in flocks with a total of 950 SLBMs on board (versus 600 for the United States)? Do we have 1750 ICBMs in service with the Strategic Missile Forces, of which half are heavy (versus 1050 ICBMs in the United States, of which only 50 are heavy)? In those days, the USA and NATO were definitely afraid of us.
                  And in January 2022, the West was apparently so afraid of us that it ordered Kyiv to launch an operation in Donbass, despite all the warnings from the Russian leadership? And Kyiv began shelling the cities of Donbass with increasing intensity in January, despite warnings from the Republic of Armenia and the concentration of its troops... out of fear of Russia?
                  Or did they provoke Russia and Putin? And Russia started the Northern Military District with the forces that were available, without mobilization, calling up reserves and volunteers? Maybe that’s why everything happened the way it did? Is this how it is happening now?

                      against 200000 Ukrainian Armed Forces

                      Actually, 250 thousand + 100 thousand were drafted into the Territorial Defense a year before the Northern Military District + a very large National Guard + Border Troops (which simply do not exist in the Russian Federation) + various kinds of special forces and national formations formalized as public organizations. According to Ukrainian sources, the total number of various types of armed forces and formations ranged from 500 to 600 thousand.
                      At the same time, on the very first day of the Northern Military District, Mobilization was announced, according to which Kyiv alone gave 70 thousand volunteers in three weeks.
                      And the Russian SVO group did not exceed 160 thousand until the fall. Arriving volunteer battalions (formed on a territorial basis) arriving at the front only made up for losses and ensured rotation.
                      These things are well known; this is exactly the number of Russian troops that the British, American, and German intelligence agencies named. At least trust them.

                      And where was Putin when they started bombing Russians from 2014 to 2022?

                      You know where he was. And you also know what you did.
                      Over these 8 years, Russia returned its armed forces and heavy weapons from beyond the Urals, deployed new divisions and armies in the European part, strengthened Crimea, completed the construction of all its early warning stations, rearmed its Little Army as far as it could, commissioned new SSBNs, rearmed the Strategic Missile Forces (Yarsy replaced Topol), deployed dozens of regimental sets of S-400 air defense systems, updated the combat aviation fleet, received hypersonic systems (Avangard, Kinzhal, Zircon), produced a large number of missile defense systems and placed them on different media.
                      But the number of ground forces was not brought to the required parameters.
                      Why
                      The SVO was largely impromptu and a reaction to what was happening. And I had to act with what I had.
                      Moreover, the goal of the SVO was to force the used ones to peace on acceptable terms. This is what we agreed on in Istanbul.

                        So far, only because in the first days of the Northern Military District they were driven along the Moscow Circle to intimidate them. NATO was afraid, the Sumerians had no time for them.

                        Before my eyes, one S-400 missile defense system shot down a baalistic missile that was trying to repeat the attack on Saki. In any case, it was from Sak that I observed this.
                        And against UAVs there are short-range air defense systems, air defense systems, air defense systems, and combat helicopters are on duty for interception.

                        NATO was so scared that they openly helped the Sumerians. I understand that there are no analogues, we are so cool, the second army in the world, but our leadership is not made of iron, and the country is not the USSR and no one is afraid of us. It’s good that the war with NATO hasn’t started.

                        After 8 years of strengthening a used army, it is no longer possible to defeat your S400 yars, Poseidons, daggers and zircons.

                        I remember it well. But they took power immediately and firmly, because they had been preparing for a long time. Almost immediately control was established in all cities. The resistance was mostly spontaneous and spontaneous, without serious organization and resources, and people themselves cannot organize quickly.
                        But they were not given time.
                        The fact that in Donetsk and Lugansk it was possible to intercept the situation only because they are the farthest from Kyiv, and while cleansing and suppression of dissent was going on in other regions, many active people from the destroyed regions began to arrive in Donetsk and Lugansk. Incl. Thanks to these people, who did not go home at night, Donetsk and Lugansk survived, proclaimed republics, created a militia and defended their independence from Ukrainian fascism.

                        No . But two or three divisions could do it completely. In addition, they would immediately become overgrown with local militia. And the overwhelming majority of Ukrainian cops would support this. And at least 50% of SBU employees (I think more), and local authorities, especially in the South-East. And the army would not have put up any resistance - Russia was its own for it. And the people would greet them with flowers as liberators. And they caught and crushed the Banderlogs with their own efforts.
                        But the official heads of the Kharkov region. and the city of Kharkov in the Kremlin said directly and clearly: “We are not interested in this.”

          What's wrong with normal relations with America?

          Nothing bad - just big advantages. Moreover, a necessary condition for economic growth, especially at that time. Yes, and joining NATO could solve the problems - if we agreed to our role of being obedient.
          Just a detail - to those who lick everything for you - the attitude is appropriate. More disgusting than friendly. It is simply impossible to achieve friendship worse than Yeltsin did.

          As for the apartment, you misunderstand. The heir to the Union is Russia. And the Belovezhskaya agreements confirmed the consent of the heir (Russia) to the transfer of Crimea and Rome.
          Regarding the neighbor's threat.
          Considering that we agreed with the transfer of property, we now confirm the legality of the Belovezhskys (there according to the existing borders - don’t you remember?) and there were no complaints - the question remains about the danger of the neighbor.
          This is where the dog rummaged. Not only THIS neighbor is dangerous, but also, for example, the Baltic states.

          Well, about the Istanbul Agreements. They are rumors, of course, but personalities also speak volumes.
          And the rest - what you call confusion - is in our position and the press, and not in my head. It’s either a cross or cowards... Well, there can’t be a mortal threat from NATO if its military forces have collapsed. You have to choose one...
          What an opportunity for manipulation that you personally are susceptible to, proving it in your own words.

          In addition to words, there were unsightly deeds.
          For example, the transfer of war criminals, Nazis.

            If you remember correctly, Russia has a capitalist system. What is the basic rule of capitalism? This is about the actions of the Russian government and also about the exchange of criminals.
            People tend to measure ongoing processes by the duration of their lives. But the cycles and timing of social processes can last for centuries. And they should be assessed similarly. After all, the history of the October Revolution and the period of Stalin’s reign and the collapse of the USSR have now begun to sparkle with new colors, don’t you think?
            My personal opinion: I once read that periods of history of any civilization are cyclical. According to this theory, in any society there are prophets, heroes and parasites. And accordingly, the cycle consists of three stages. The generation of prophets, when the processes occurring in society do not have a solution due to objective factors, such as: the lower classes do not want, but the upper classes cannot, the opinion of the prophets begins to prevail in society. It's like Lenin, Hitler, Gorbachev and others like them. These are a kind of prophets who promised manna from heaven if society did what they said. Then comes a generation of heroes who carry out the decisions of the prophets. And finally, a generation of parasites who fatten on the benefits that society received as a result of the actions of a generation of heroes. And as a result of the feasting of parasites, which include not only the elite, but also the majority of society, which ignores their responsibilities, a number of problems accumulate that a society consisting mostly of parasites cannot solve. And accordingly, a generation of prophets appears on the scene again.
            I agree with this theory. And now the period of heroes begins and the period of the generation of prophets ends.

              In continuation of this, I will add that the generation of prophets began in the late USSR, when in the late USSR a generation of parasites was raised who refused to fulfill their duties, including the defense of the USSR, although they took an oath and signed up for this when they received a passport.

                This is my personal opinion, not supported by anything, obtained on the basis of my personal simple life experience. Simply put, the life cycle of one person, ten or a hundred is not enough. But there are societies of people who, thanks to specific abilities that should not be immediately denied, and the accumulated amount of wealth, and the accumulation of special knowledge and technical means, can with a high degree of probability calculate various options, playing the long game for hundreds of years. Although this smacks of conspiracy theories, as we know, there is no smoke without fire. I'll just give you food for thought. In the 19th century, during the period of greatest power, every sixth inhabitant of the planet either spoke Russian or was a resident of the Russian Empire. There were approximately the same number of native English speakers. Now in the 21st century, every 15 people in the world speak Russian and every fifth speaks English. And clearly certain individuals had a hand in this fact. After all, it is already known how Paul 1 was killed and who had a hand in the overthrow of Nicholas 2. It is also known how Orthodoxy was destroyed in Eastern and Western Europe, starting with the destruction of Constantinople, etc. and so on. And now we have what we have. When Ukraine is completely at the mercy of the BlackRock corporation, which belongs to interesting families and owns a total capital of 9 trillion dollars. And the trident of Ukraine is worth something, a direct hint, knowing the constant war of Kievan Rus with the Khazar Kaganate after the Prince of Kiev refused to convert to Judaism. And interesting facts about the connection between the Anglican Church, the Vatican and the Jews (not to confuse the Jews, commonly known as Jews, with Jews - these are different things, although among Jews this is the main religion).

      I’m not sure that a hundred million clicks on X mean a long view, not to mention a two-hour one... In addition, the President is not concise in his answers - not everyone likes his thoroughness.

      The American elite sees in the interview a betrayal of Carson, who opened the doors to Russian “propaganda.” The most common thesis in the American media is Putin’s views on Trump’s benefit and Carson is a Kremlin agent in Trump’s camp.

    The most important thing (and the worst thing) in this generally not very significant story is the wave of groveling before this American journalist himself. A gentleman has come to us and he will save us.
    And the funniest thing is that his boots are licked by those people who are shouting on all corners about the “terrible West” and some kind of struggle for a “multipolar world.” There was a timid hope that after these people’s money was taken away and they were given a black mark, they had at least learned something, and were now able to show at least a minimal desire for independence.
    But alas... everyone too. Now we worship the evil eastern master (PRC), but we dream that the master (West) will make us his beloved wife again. We wanted to join you so much, we wanted to join NATO, but you evil radishes abandoned us. Well, how can this be so?
    As for the content, the author is right; nothing new was said. All the same complaints about the evil Zelensky who refuses to negotiate, which are wonderfully combined with stories about the Nazis and the coup in 14. The super plan is now to wait for Trump to come, and he will force the Nazis to talk to us.
    PS A separate question is what they will say about this in China. Since the Russian authorities are not capable of independence and have decided to be a junior ally of the PRC, then it would be logical to consistently adhere to this line.

      this is that wave of groveling before this American journalist himself. A gentleman has come to us and he will save us.

      What is this wave expressed in? Why do they take selfies and take autographs? Well, this happens with any conditional Kirkorov or specific Orbakaite
      Quote: Belisarius
      And the funniest thing is that those people who are licking his boots are shouting on all corners about the “terrible West” and some kind of struggle for a “multipolar world.”

      Carlson is essentially the most significant media figure in the Republican camp after Trump. Is recognizing this fact the same as licking?

      PS A separate question is what they will say about this in China. Since the Russian authorities are not capable of independence and have decided to be a junior ally of the PRC,

      The most important thing (and the worst thing) in this generally not very significant story is the wave of groveling before this American journalist himself.

      Don't talk nonsense, there is no sycophancy. And Tucker deserves respect as the most popular journalist in the United States, who did not agree to broadcast in line with the American Zambian media, took the blow, and at the same time he could not be canceled like others. The mere fact that he was included in the “Peacemaker” database for this interview already says a lot - he’s not doing his job in vain, he put pressure on the Nazis and the West on a sore spot, and therefore did it for our benefit.

    Well, let's start
    Let us repeat, the number of views of the conversation between Putin and Carlson in the first 24 hours exceeded one hundred million

    We go into an interview on YouTube and see a figure of 12 million, on Facebook it’s generally crumbs of a couple of thousand, millions on Twitter are views of a tweet, not a video, it’s extremely difficult to judge by them, but even so it’s not 100 million, not to mention about a billion. In fact, few people here are interested in this interview at all; for an American, it’s more important where he goes for the weekend than a war for distant lands, and it’s no secret that Russians in general are also interested in their own problems.
    Firstly, he is loved in the United States, and he is a true professional in his field

    Americans will be surprised when they find out that they love Carlson. America is not Russia, views vary from house to house and from state to state, diametrically opposed, as on all other issues. Some people idolize Carlson and consider him a mouthpiece for the truth, others consider him a crazy half-Nazi. In general, he adheres to extremely conservative views, so there is no and cannot be an unambiguous assessment of him as a professional and a favorite of citizens.
    He sees perfectly well what the politics of pseudo-liberals, who have betrayed all the canons of freedom of speech, are turning the world into.

    Another nonsense because the only reason for the interview, besides attracting attention to one’s personality, is
    Trump needs to discredit Biden in any way

    And if anyone thinks that the Republicans are sabotaging the passage of the relief package because they want the end of the war, peace, friendship and cookies, then they are sadly mistaken. The only reason is a behind-the-scenes game before the elections, but as soon as they take place, everyone will accept it.
    There are plenty of harsh comparisons between the two leaders on social media. For example, this

    Open the comments and read what they write about Putin, you will be very surprised. A couple of comments are not an indicator. There are many questions for Biden. Not so, there are a LOT of questions and, in general, it’s high time for my grandfather to retire, in general, the future elections will be a struggle between the lame and the poor, but unfortunately, we have what we have.

        There is another problem, there is no exact report on aid spending, but according to Biden, most of these funds remain in the United States and I am inclined to believe him, because most of these funds are military support in kind. These are the costs of transferring tanks, missiles and other fun things, purchasing weapons from third countries, paying for training and instructors. Now the question is, do you think this hole and shortage of weapons remains in the American defense industry, or is the money being spent on purchasing new weapons? Do you think the countries from which they bought old T-72s will decide to remain without tanks or buy a couple of Western-style tanks, especially considering that many of them are NATO members? Are instructors and training paid for from Kyiv? The arms lobby makes billions in this war, and the government gets military factories that are not closing, loaded with orders and without the cost of disposing of old equipment. Those who think that there are idiots in the American government are very deeply mistaken.

          For the American man in the street, it doesn’t make much difference that the money is taken from him, and it goes to a relatively narrow circle of people from the military-industrial complex - he loses in any case if he is not connected with this military-industrial complex, and there are few of them, given that almost 80% of the US economy is the sphere services.

            A conventional American becomes interested in where his money goes in two cases:
            1st, when taxes are raised,
            2nd, when the media begins to raise this topic (usually before the elections).
            And you can cover the question: “where is the money, gentlemen” with indicators of unemployment and new jobs, read the labor department statistics, in 2023 they created 2 times more jobs than expected, and unemployment is at a record low level, this is connected with the end of business cycle, and with the growth of the military-industrial complex, of course there are questions about the statistics, many believe that the growth is due to the fact that workers are transferred from full time to part time in order to save on insurance and benefits, but there are no less questions for critics.
            the money is taken from him, and it goes to a relatively narrow circle of people from the military-industrial complex

              What does this have to do with jobs? If everything is so good there, then why are the real incomes of US citizens falling and inflation rising?
              The scale of the failure of Joe Biden's social program is becoming increasingly clear, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich writes in an op-ed for The Washington Times. Citing economist Steve Moore, Gingrich notes that Biden's social policies have resulted in real earnings for the average US citizen falling by $3 in less than two years.
              As Gingrich writes, throughout the 17 months of Biden's administration, Americans' wages grew slower than living costs. The average price increase was 8,3%: the price of gasoline increased by 68,8%, and the price of electricity by 15,8%. As for the price of food, it increased by 13,5%: as Gingrich notes, this is a record increase over the past 43 years.

                You should at least look at the sources, the first link doesn’t even open, but I found a copied article written back in 22, based on an interview with a Republican newspaper, who, by the way, was accused of slander in 23 after a statement about Biden receiving a bribe, the third newspaper - Republican and the only more or less reliable source, The wall street journal, is semi-Republican, I think I already talked about the election race. True, this does not negate the fact of a decline in income due to inflation, not as dramatic as described there because, lo and behold, fuel is not only becoming more expensive, but also becoming cheaper, almost one and a half times over the last year. I didn’t say that everything is fine in the country, the Federal Reserve is still fighting inflation, which is reducing the real incomes of citizens, but you also need to understand that no administration has ever faced such crises as the Covid lockdown, they got scared, distributed money, and now they are raking it . Again, I’m not saying that everything is fine in the economy, we are at the end of the business cycle, everything can’t be fine, and there are also many complaints about Biden, and in general it’s time for my grandfather to retire, but it’s also difficult to call his economic policy an absolute failure.

                    No, I am not a supporter of Biden, just like Trump, I have already said that this is a battle between the lame and the wretched and I do not wish victory for either of them. I’m just looking at things objectively, Biden’s rating decline is caused by inflation and a decrease in citizens’ income after Trump distributed money, another decline is caused by the flight from Afghanistan, which was started by who? That's right, Trump. In my purely subjective opinion, Trump-Zhirinovsky who could, 100% populism, 0% action. The only compromise option in my opinion at the moment is Nikki Haley, young and energetic, she also has some questions, but compared to the current candidates, heaven and earth.
                    Again, I say once again, the USA is not Russia, here each state is a state within a state, with its own laws and army, a lot is decided by the Senate and Congress in which views differ not only from party to party, but from person to person people and often Republicans oppose initiatives put forward by Republicans and vice versa.

    For a citizen of Russia there was nothing new in Vladimir Vladimirovich’s story
    How to say. After all, through an American journalist, the president tried to convey his complaints to the US leadership.
    My colleagues in France and Germany said: “How can you imagine them signing a contract with a gun to their head?” Troops must be withdrawn from Kyiv. I said okay. We withdrew our troops from Kyiv. As soon as we withdrew our troops from Kyiv, our Ukrainian negotiators immediately threw into the trash all our agreements reached in Istanbul and prepared for a long armed confrontation with the help of the United States and its satellites in Europe. This is how the situation developed and this is how it looks now.

    And at VO they broke their spears, why they retreated from Kyiv, who is to blame, which generals should be punished, etc. It turns out there were agreements in Istanbul , which were not particularly discussed in the Russian Federation. Here are some bad “partners”, they cheated again, who would have thought. And in general, the constant, “we did this and this too. but they put it on us.. with the device.”
    I became president in 2000. I thought: okay, the Yugoslav issue has been resolved, but we must try to restore relations. Let's reopen the door that Russia tried to get through. And moreover, I said this publicly, I can repeat it again... At a meeting here in the Kremlin with outgoing President Bill Clinton, right here in the next room, I told him, I asked him: Bill, what do you think? If Russia asked to join NATO, would it be possible? Suddenly he said, “You know, this is interesting. I think so".

    But in the evening, when we met for dinner, he said: “You know, I talked to my team, no, this is not possible now.” You can ask him. I think he will watch our interview and he will confirm this.

    /
    Yes. they didn’t understand GDP in the USA.. I approached her this way and that, with words and without words........ And these excursions into history. There are no personalities, they were crushed. And here’s how I spoke to the American President IV. Stalin , whom our president accused of creating the Ukrainian SSR.
    Roosevelt. The question of the incorporation of the Baltic republics into the Soviet Union may be raised in the United States, and I believe that world public opinion will find it desirable that at some future time the opinion of the peoples of these republics on this question should be expressed in some way. Therefore, I hope that Marshal Stalin will take this wish into account. I personally have no doubt that the people of these countries will vote to join the Soviet Union as unanimously as they did in 1940.

    Stalin. Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia did not have autonomy before the revolution in Russia. The tsar was then in alliance with the United States and England, and no one raised the issue of withdrawing these countries from Russia. Why is this question posed now?

    Roosevelt. The fact is that public opinion does not know history.
    And as with the journalists of the American United Press agency, Mr. H. Bailey, received on October 23, 1946
    1 question. Do you agree with the views expressed by Secretary of State Byrnes in his radio address last Friday about the increasing tension between the USSR and the United States?

    Answer. No.

    2. Question. If there is such increasing tension, can you indicate the reason or reasons for it and what are the main remedies for eliminating it?

    Answer. The question disappears in connection with the answer to the previous question.

    3. Question. Do you believe that real negotiations will lead to peace treaties that will establish cordial relations between the peoples - former allies in the war against fascism - and eliminate the danger of war from the former Axis powers?

    Answer. I hope so.

    4. Question. What are otherwise the main obstacles to the establishment of such cordial relations between the peoples who were allies in the great war?

    Answer. The question disappears in connection with the answer to the previous question.
    Feel the difference. - Yes, there were people in our time,

      In 1918, a revolution occurred in Russia and there is a civil war and intervention of the collective West. American society wants to find out what really happened in the mysterious country. American correspondent Dean Reed travels to Russia and interviews the country's leader V.I. Lenin in the Kremlin. Subsequently publishing a report entitled “Ten Days That Shook the World.” 106 years have passed since then. History has a way of repeating itself.

      You forgot that for the second time history repeats itself in the form of a farce

    The author was so immersed in expressing loyal feelings to the current president that he chose not to notice two facts that are clearly not in favor, but rather to the detriment of the country and cause serious harm to the prestige and reputation of the country. The first is that the president justified Hitler’s attack on Poland and therefore the outbreak of WWII by Nazi Germany. So he said in plain text that it was Poland and not Hitler who was to blame. He was provoked. The second is a frank admission that Russia intentionally destroyed the USSR, abandoned communist ideas, destroyed the economy and social sphere only in order to “become one of our own among, as we say, the bourgeoisie” And no one was outraged by this confession. Sad prospects for the once mighty power.

    The most important thing is, IMHO, T. Carlson’s “afterword”.

    https://youtu.be/ai3ltzGT8xE

    The main idea: “don’t deal with the Russian Federation like with Iraq and Libya.”
    On the one hand, the comparison is sad, and the admission that this topic is being discussed somewhere is also sad.
    On the other hand - well, thank you, my dear, for “not necessary.”
    On the third side (we will assume that “the coin has a third side”), events may develop not in accordance with T. Carlson’s wishes.
    By the way, it is also advisable to look at the “preface” to the interview.

    PS. I don’t even want to write how Carlson set up Sam and Gershkovich.
    But the very complementary exclamations/articles to the interview, which begins with such questions, are, to say the least, surprising.
    " T. Carlson (as translated): Mr. President, thank you very much.
    On February 24, 2022, you addressed your country and nation when the conflict began in Ukraine. You said that you are acting because you have come to the conclusion that with the help of NATO, the United States can launch a surprise attack, an attack on your country. For Americans it's like paranoia.
    Why do you think that America could deliver an unexpected blow to Russia? How did you come to this conclusion? "

        Don't you know? In 1991, the leadership of the USSR staged a bourgeois coup d'etat/revolution (as you like). Therefore, it is quite natural to join the bourgeoisie, don’t you agree? After all, we now also have a bourgeois system. Or are you not good with logic? And if you do not agree with the bourgeois system then the question is. Why did you (if you are over 48 years old) and the population of the USSR betray the conquests of the USSR? After all, the entire male population swore an oath of protection when they served in the USSR Armed Forces, and all citizens signed for a passport, where interesting things about responsibilities were written on the last pages? And if former citizens of the USSR are now not happy with this, does this mean that they are all traitors to the USSR, since they deliberately did not fulfill their obligations? Do you agree with this?

    Despite the fact that these 2 hours were, de facto, Putin’s monologue, the main “star” is Carlson, it was because of him that there was all the fuss - look, an American came to see Putin. Carlson could have said nothing at all, just listened to Putin.
    And about Hitler and Poland, it’s clear what the hint is, like if some people voluntarily agreed to give the territories of their State to people in another State, then there would be no war.

      Putin FIRST said that “the decision to dissolve the USSR was made by the then leadership” - this radically changes history, that “the USSR itself collapsed.” Now Russia, as the legal successor of the USSR, can cancel the decision of the then leadership of the USSR, since the thread of succession has been preserved.

        No, he was not talking about the leadership of the USSR, but about the leadership of Russia:
        “In essence, this collapse [of the USSR] was initiated by the Russian leadership. I don’t know what guided the Russian leadership then, but I suspect that there were several reasons to think that everything would be fine <...>

        “Russia even voluntarily and proactively agreed to the collapse of the Soviet Union and proceeds from the fact that this will be understood by the so-called - already in quotes - “civilized West” as a proposal for cooperation and alliance.”

      Putin said in an interview, and even showed with his hand, that the United States will either gradually leave Olympus or abruptly.

    It was a powerful interview, put it into detail. I can imagine if Solovyov were a journalist and came to interview Bush or Biden, on the issues of the war with Iraq or the bombing of Libya, and he would begin essentially, “First, the Pilgrims landed from the Mayflower in Plymouth and founded a colony, then he smoothly moved on to the wars with the Navajo, Sioux, Apaches and ended with the creation of the United States and the War of Independence." When asked by Rudolfovich what this has to do with the war with Iraq, he said, “for you Russians, this is too difficult for you not to understand, and Iraq itself, by the way attacked Kuwait and we are carrying out an operation to protect the population of Kuwait, albeit on the territory of Iraq, you say many years have passed since Iraq’s attack on Kuwait, so we gave them the opportunity to come to their senses and fulfill all the agreements, and these Baathists, by the way, are the heirs of the Arab Nazis, sponsored terrorists and manufactured chemical weapons and planned to attack the United States, we felt threatened. By the way, the Iraqi army was completely armed with Russian AKs and air defense systems, as they say, where have you been for these 12 years. You ask why there are American military bases near oil fields, so for protection, we offered Hussein to come to an agreement, we have oil and territories for bases, peace to him, but he did not want to agree, that is, as if he himself was provoking the continuation of the conflict, and we are always open to negotiations. But I want to emphasize once again that America never attacked anyone first, it only defended itself." But seriously, I sincerely hope that this whole interview was solely for external propaganda, and there are a lot of questions for consultants, especially on the creation of Ukraine, there Russia has been harmed by everyone since the 16th century, Lithuanians, Poles, French, the Austrian General Staff, liberals, Lenin, and Comrade Stalin fired the control shot, poor Tucker’s eyes began to twitch. It feels like the consultants collected all the tales of the RuNet and slipped them on the table " himself,” just as he had not yet begun to remember the words of Churchill, Thatcher, Albright about the Russians. It’s just that if he is serious and based on these premises they make such strategic decisions as war, then this is a complete mess, and there are no ideas on how to get out of all this, except perhaps wait, as one king had an inscription on his ring: “this too shall pass.”

    The most interesting thing about this interview is the reaction it caused in foreign society.

    A very weak reaction, to be honest. There is no "shock" visible. And as for how many people watched, most of them watched Tucker Carlson rather than Putin. :((
    Carlson's popularity is undeniable, although, of course, it sank after he left Fox News. And his teasing of Putin with his alibi for the time of the explosion of flows is a clear illustration of the reasons for his popularity, his language is well defined.
    Not surprisingly, Clinton called Carlson a “useful idiot,” a term originally used for popular pro-Union Westerners.
    As for Putin’s words, there was nothing fundamentally new in them, except that he confused Zelensky’s father with his grandfather. In the West, what has been said is discussed in essence very little; nothing new has been said to them. Carlson is discussed more than Putin's words. :((

    Why Carlson?

    1. Non-professionals are not hired. Carlson achieved popularity with judgments independent of the policies of employers, for which he was kicked out of Fox
    2. Behind Carlson there are serious people who at this stage cannot afford to shine themselves and whose attitude he expresses in a form accessible to him.
    3. An interview with Miley and Putin increases Carlson’s popularity, which translates into material and other values.
    4. The interview with Carlson is akin to Putin’s Munich speech – a political message to the West.

    Why did the interview appear now?

    1. Political request of the West in the person of Carson
    2. Political economic interest of the Russian Federation

    What will happen next?

    1. Trade, separate agreement and division of Ukraine with preservation of the statehood of what remains of it as a result of trading.
    2. Transnational monopoly capital has not and will never cancel the ongoing task of defragmentation and decolonization of the Russian Federation, because the Russian Federation occupies 1/5 of the landmass and has inexhaustible natural resources of an almost unlimited size
    3. Natural monopolies represented by the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs will continue to make every effort to escape from state control and integrate with world capital under the guise of the WTO, IMF, etc., which predetermines their role as a fifth column in the Russian Federation.
    4. Erasing state borders that complicate the path to world domination for transnational monopoly capital through the creation of various kinds of unions like the EU and the Society of Common Destiny

      The International Criminal Court in The Hague issued an arrest warrant for V.V. Putin and closed the possibility of direct communication, and EU=NATO diplomats were not recommended to take part in events of the Russian Foreign Ministry.
      The impossibility of communication and the growing war psychosis in the EU=NATO, heavily inflated by Western propaganda, became the prerequisite for Carlson’s finest hour.
      Carlson's interview is very different from traditional ones and is more like an indirect appeal by the President of the Russian Federation to the leadership of the EU = NATO, explaining the position of the Russian Federation and the conditions for ending the war in Ukraine and the vision of reorganizing the world.

    The concept of "viewing" is a very loose concept. People could open the video and turn it off after 2-3 minutes, rewinding it a couple of times. Watching a historical excursion for two hours without pictures and thematic video inserts is too much for a spoiled Western viewer (and for many in general).
    Here in the “+” of GDP, many commentators note his ability to speak for a long time without a piece of paper, they say, they are not spoiled like that in the West. Absolutely - there's Donald Trump, he can do it quite well without a piece of paper. The “open hands” format should not be overestimated; the Western viewer is much more sophisticated in political technology and media techniques than ours, who reside in the sleepy one-sided kingdom.
    In general, in principle, this interview should not be overestimated - was it necessary? Yes, you probably need it. Although this very “Varangian” format with visiting journalists somewhat tarnishes the reputation of our journalists and looks strange, given our ostentatious growing anti-Westernism.
    Generally speaking, VVP was somewhat late with this interview. The SVO has been going on for 2 years already; it would have been possible to organize something similar in plan a year and a half ago - it would have been much more useful. Now all the laces that could be untied are practically already untied, and to think that after looking at them they will lace them “backwards” is naivety.
    There is an opinion on the Internet that the format was not very successful and convenient for presentation “to a Western viewer” - I have to agree with this. In the West, they value more the preparation of laconic, clear theses and a quick survey, and only then, if you need to deepen the topic, explanations for them.

    Of course, there will be some benefit from all this, but it is definitely not a “global event.”

And in this conflict, for some reason you, the West, are not acting as we expected. You have not abandoned Ukraine, but are systematically increasing the supply of weapons, ammunition, and equipment. And at this time, our situation is worsening: Bashkiria and Yakutia showed this. In the historical interview, one can no longer hear the goals that were popular at the beginning of the Northern Military District: demilitarization and denazification. And in general, what difference does it make to us who the US President will be: Biden or Trump, they will not stop helping Ukraine now. And the countries of Europe and the USA are not tired of Ukraine, as our TV shows and our analysts prove.

    I agree with the author of the article. The interview, of course, is aimed primarily at a Western audience and it has found its addressee. There are, of course, a couple of questions, but in order to discuss them we need a platform for public dialogue between our citizens, excluding infiltrates and radicals (both left and right).
    And the hysterics of the European left-liberal, Bandera side and the neo-Bolshevik Frond associated with them (including those clearly expressed on Military Review) are understandable.
    Some belittle the significance of this speech of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, some are absurd and try to devalue it, and all sorts of chancellors and prime ministers in the assortment, being unprepared to enter into correspondence polemics on the issues under discussion, simply say “it’s all a lie.”

    Look here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTI3UXB75qs Tucker Carlson’s first impressions after that interview.
    Particularly interesting is his analysis of Putin's presentation of his arguments.
    Tucker accurately noted at the 0:37 mark that Putin "very offended"(in the original there is the word wounded - wounded, hurt), "very offended that the West rejects him..."Next, at the 1:18 mark, Tucker speaks directly and clearly (knowing US politicians, all their vile cuisine and intrigues)"in any case, the West definitely doesn't want to be friends with Russia, that's the point of NATO, to contain Russia. And Putin is offended by this. He is very angry about this! His eyes sparkled as we talked about it for, well, probably over an hour.".
    Let's think about what an American journalist revealed to us: Putin, supposedly a brilliant intelligence officer and service officer, a patriot and a long-liver of world politics, SUDDENLY does not understand basic things about geopolitics and how the history of superpowers works in general! He lives in some fictional world, where Russia (nuclear superpower) you can cajole, please the USA, the elite of the world hegemon, make friends with them WITHOUT LOSSING sovereigntywithout becoming their vassal! How can you come up with something like this??? What about him? He believes in all this nonsense about humanism, about “international law,” about the role of the UN (a US-controlled office where our diplomats are often simply not issued visas).
    Let me note that I have been surprised for two years now that Russia not only does not escalate the situation at the UN - at least demand that all our diplomats and experts always issue visas, threatening to withdraw from a bunch of treaties, for example from the crazy Kyoto Protocol, the Global Pact on Migration (loophole for refugees). For some reason, our country is a member of these OSCE (recently Strelkov was given 4 years in prison, on the same day the representative of the Russian Federation in the OSCE made a statement about his readiness for negotiations on Ukraine), complies with all these humanitarian wishes of Europe (the abolition of the death penalty) ...
    Why do we play by their rules??
    Maybe because Putin is still believes in THEIR rules and THEIR values?

      you see, only TWO years surprises you. They wipe their feet on us, but we ourselves are happy to have them wipe our feet.
      Yesterday I read the main news from Yandex - we are READY to pay an annual contribution to WADA worth 1.5 million dollars, from where we were 1) expelled 2) slandered 3) banned half of the athletes from participating in sports. competitions for many years (the end of a career in fact). 4) imposed sanctions.
      so we are READY to pay the annual fee.
      that's all.
      and the root of this readiness? children of officials are sitting in all these international organizations, if we leave there, about 150 people will be left without a salary and the prospects of a good sleep and vacation in Europe at the expense of the country. Therefore, they cling with all their might to this status and are ready to persuade managers to pay any money even after humiliation.
      and I have been observing this since our 2014 Olympics. Where we are accused of everything, deprived of it, athletes are prohibited from performing and NOBODY can protect them.
      but we pay money and fees.

        I completely agree and am also completely confused: Why?!?
        Since the beginning of the war, Russia is generally their enemy No. 1, why should we suck up to them? Meaning?
        Why belong to these US vassal organizations? Why pay fees there?
        After all, the Russian Federation is simply constantly open there, officially omitted...

        I agree that this may be the interest of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (their children) and other international workers from the Russian Federation, “citizens of the world” so to speak - no matter how bad the country is, but they want to live and work abroad, even if they bend over and lick their shoes "civilized" Americans. When I looked at that scam with voting by signing the Global Pact on Migration at the UN (a loophole for decades to come for migrants, rabid refugees and illegal immigrants) and the behavior of the Russian Foreign Ministry, their rare “justifications” in our media, ... I could not find another main explanation other than just betrayal of his country in favor of the UN and the USA.

        What is also important here is the complete absence of one’s own normal state ideology. Instead, in Russia there is some kind of vinaigrette from biblical tales, the role of the church, partially traditional values, corrected history, imperial greatness for the sake of greatness and a HUGE amount of Western, globalist liberal values ​​such as “human rights” (above the rights of citizens), “international law”, tolerance, humanism, market economy... ending with this fight for the climate, against global warming.
        But China has its own ideology. And you can’t push it like that in WADA, it won’t work!
        A simple thought experiment: imagine a Chinese leader who agrees to send Chinese athletes to the Olympics without Chinese flag/anthem and with strange letters on the form (what did they tell us there: OAR, ROC? Loch... etc.)
        Who caved in to the Olympic Committee and caved in the whole of China, humiliated his entire country for the sake of participating in the Olympics. Can you imagine this?
        And I can't imagine this.

    This all reminds me of something I read a long time ago in books about Indians - now a White man with a fast and nimble tongue from across the big water will convey what our Leader and tribe want to other White people. By God...

    Vladimir Putin would not agree to talk with any other journalist from the United States.
    - Why is this? Had a nice conversation with Megan Kelly, no problems.

    After this interview, the majority of US voters will be faced with a difficult choice: 1. Take the side of truth and vote for D. Trump, and 2. The opportunity to somehow survive in the literal sense of the word, and vote for the Democrats, and leave everything as it is. If they choose the first option, the following will suffer: 1. Poor segments of the population living on benefits and subsidies. 2. Banking sector employees. 3. Military-industrial complex workers. 3. Some policies at different levels. So for these categories of the population, the question between the truth and the possibility of survival to the detriment of the fact that someone is dying on the fronts of some kind of Ukraine will become acute.
