The Fragile State of Putin’s Mind is Costing Russian Lives

In recent weeks, since Russia’s vicious and unprovoked assault on Ukraine, there have been many curious rumors afloat about Vladimir Putin: that he is dying of colon cancer, that he is deeply paranoid, that he is maniacally obsessed with rebuilding the old Russian Empire beginning with Ukraine, and that he is mentally unstable.   

As we watch the tragedy unfold in Ukraine at the hands of the Russian military, there is an image of Putin that is making the rounds of intelligence circles: 

There sits Putin, deep in his bunker, protected by his carefully chosen Chechen bodyguards, and uninformed about what is really happening in Ukraine, because his generals are afraid to give him the bad news. Putin thinks Russia is winning. He does not know, they say, that it is not Russia victorious,’ preparing for its victory parade down the streets of Kyiv, but Russian tanks heading for the hills to “regroup and resupply.” 

Word is that Putin is becoming increasingly delusional and that he sits alone in his bunker, where he carries on long conversations . . . with Peter the Great and Ivan the Terrible, great names from Russian history but long gone from this world. They don’t talk back to him or criticize him. And he cannot arrest them or have them put to death.

Can a man in such a mental state really have his finger on the nuclear button that enables him to control the destiny of the world? He has been talking about the possibility of using nuclear weapons against Ukraine. And he does not know that his troops are withdrawing. They say that they are moving away from the center of fighting in order to regroup and restock – fuel, ammunition, and food for the troops. But when they withdraw, they leave a vacuum, which the Ukrainian troops rush in to fill. 

The Russians have left a huge swath of destruction in their wake, cities that have been totally destroyed by Russian missiles with thousands of dead and wounded Ukrainians on the mangled earth. But the Ukrainians are nevertheless still standing and still fighting, and they have regained significant ground. Parts of the country that had been captured by Russian troops are now back under Ukrainian control. And the Ukrainian people are prepared to fight for every inch of their country.

If Putin is really sitting in his bunker talking to dead heroes, and oblivious to the defeat that his troops are facing in Ukraine, he will no doubt start to wonder why there hasn’t already been a victory parade through the streets of Kyiv. And if he discovers how badly he has been deceived by his own people, how will his rage express itself? In the arrest of senior officers? In the unleashing of nuclear weapons in Ukraine? To what lengths will his demented mind take the world?

Predicting the near future in these uncertain times is risky at best. Tomorrow is likely to be as full of surprises as yesterday was. And while the future of Ukraine hangs in the balance, the Biden administration is taking its time to fulfill its promises to deliver weapons to Ukraine, where every single day matters, where life and death are a constant struggle for the Ukrainian people on the ground. 

Biden appears to be afraid to rattle Putin’s cage. It seems to be the policy of this administration not to antagonize Putin. So Biden has dragged his feet in a slow walk to provide the weapons he promised to Ukraine.

The Biden administration delayed the delivery of the first stingers until the end of January, while Russian forces were building up near the Ukrainian border in Russia and Belarus. And he refused to impose significant sanctions on Russia until after there was actually a war in Ukraine. 

Biden’s mental state is also in question, but he has neither Putin’s unchallenged power nor his unbridled viciousness. He is simply too weak and unable to carry the heavy responsibilities of his office with honor. In his weakness and mental vagueness, he presents a grave danger to the country that he is sworn to serve. 

On the other hand, Putin has always portrayed himself as a man of great physical strength and power as the head of the Russian government. So today, the picture of him sitting alone in his bunker, talking to ghosts, is one of pathos and terror, as his hand rests uncomfortably close to the nuclear button. What the world needs to recognize ⏤ and to fear ⏤ as it continues to spin towards chaos without the leadership it so desperately needs ⏤is that we are now in what may be the most dangerous time in the history of the world. At one minute to midnight, it’s time to wake up.

Biden’s absolute first priority should be defending the southern border of the USA. Second, just don’t say or do anything to worsen or inflame the situation between Russia and Ukraine. But Biden and his family, as well as the rest of the Democrat Party (Hillary Clinton, talking about you) are too intertwined with corruption in Ukraine AND Russia to focus on anything but protecting their own interests.

There is a number of countries that are not interested in peace They benefit from this war. I hope to see some real analysis in the future not PR. A handful of countries with reasonable leadership are pushing for peace. I hope more and more countries will eventually line up behind Turkey, Israel , Bulgaria, Hungary ( No lethal weapon shipments but peace talks.) Unfortunately the US does not seem to be interested in the peace negotiations so people will die in this totally preventable and unnecessary war.

He has ruled Russia long enough only to see it humiliated in war, finally bankrupting it, and losing billions in yachts, dachas, oil, and its outdated military equipment.

All fer nuth’n. The moron should be hanged with whatever leftover rope they can find.

America has an Economic Virus

America has an Economic Virus

Whenever the government says, it wants to “help,” watch out! The problem is going to get worse. Why? Because government is meddling where it doesn’t belong. Because government is meddling where it has no expertise. Because government meddling imposes top-down “solutions” that are not based on free-market supply and demand. It always backfires…

The Global Western Cabal End Game

The Global Western Cabal End Game

The pandemic is becoming permanent, even as it ends. Why? Because we did not pass the cabal’s election laws. Had we allowed the cabal to make fraud the norm in every state, then they would have been able to throw future elections even without a pandemic. We did not pass those laws so now the pandemic is permanent…

The Light at the End of the Tunnel

At the moment, Socialists hold the reins of power in their hands, and in doing so, they have weaponized the DoJ, FBI, CIA, IRS, and Homeland Security significantly enough to change the Patriot Acts definition of who constitutes domestic terrorists. For the Democrat Party, control is essential, and seeing the light of an oncoming train, they are desperately attempting to rearrange…

OSHA & HHS Vaccine Mandates Oral Arguments

OSHA & HHS Vaccine Mandates Oral Arguments

This case is not about whether vaccines are effective, useful, or a good idea. It’s about whether this federal executive branch agency has the power to force millions of people working for or with a Medicare or Medicaid provider to undergo an invasive, irrevocable, forced medical treatment, a COVID shot. It’s a bureaucratic power move that is unprecedented…

A Scientific Reawakening at the Lincoln Memorial

The “Defeat the Mandates” march called for an end to vaccine mandates nationwide. Dr. Peter McCullough applauded the doctors and health care workers who stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, and those throughout the nation that fought the good fight against medical tyranny. “We never had a full-throated endorsement from our government agencies, the CDC, the NIH, and the FDA, nor the White House task force,”…

Biden’s Forthcoming Failure in the Middle East Will Have Worldwide Implications

Biden’s Forthcoming Failure in the Middle East Will Have Worldwide Implications

Since Biden has come to office, almost every nation that used to depend upon America for their security is realizing how wrong they have been and are now either arming themselves with more weapons or re-aligning with China and Russia, even if temporary. What is brewing in the Middle East – as I have been repeatedly warning – is a Nuclear confrontation because…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #14

Can Dr. McCullough, talk more about pericarditis? Everyone mentions myocarditis, but there are never any statistics mentioned for pericarditis. In Australia, there are twice as many reports of pericarditis than myocarditis from vaccines. What are the dangers of having Covid naturally and then getting vaccinated? Wasn’t there a thought that you should not get vaccinated for 90 days after having Covid?

Hunter Biden, Paul Pelosi Jr. and A Swamp of Thieves

Hunter Biden was earning an $80,000 monthly salary from the Ukrainian energy company and why he concocted a billion-dollar deal with a Chinese investment firm, 10% of all earnings of which were destined for the coffers of the family’s mob boss, Joe Biden himself. But why stop with the Biden’s? Speaker Pelosi’s son, Paul Pelosi Jr. has been linked to at least five businesses under investigation for alleged fraud…

Global Failure of Public Health on Pandemic Response

PM Boris Johnson announced that his country is to move into mitigated COVID restrictions, dropping the legal requirement for face masks and COVID passports. Meanwhile, the European Union drug regulators warned frequent COVID boosters could adversely affect the immune system. While both of these developments are not declaring an end to mass vaccination, they are setting the framework to announce a…

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

A close examination of the newly unredacted emails reveals that none of the usual justifications for redactions, such as private information about people or threats to sources and methods, apply. All appear to have been made solely to shield Fauci and the NIH from scrutiny over its cover-up of the virus’ origins. Also involved in the obfuscation effort were Fauci’s boss, recently retired NIH Dir Dr. Francis Collins…

This Week In COVID: Hospitals, Please Stop Killing Our Loved Ones!

Patients never have the same doctor or nurse 2 days in a row. Family advocates STILL aren’t allowed to be bedside. The ‘Science’ isn’t being followed, but the ‘Money’ is being chased after. Doctors aren’t THINKING, they are OBEYING. One-size-fits-all does NOT work for high-risk patients or any patients. If you agree this is wrong, help us fight for what’s right…
