Medvedev’s Election Signals that Russia Will Stay the Course
2008, Mark Glenn
Despite the implication of what ‘Russian Roulette’ entails–meaning a fool’s game of chance with death–there is nothing suicidal (on a personal or national level) about what the ruling elite in Russia are planning, and no better proof of this lies than in the recent election of Dmitry Medvedev to the presidency.
Long considered to be Vladimir Putin’s protégé, Medvedev secured over 70% of the vote in the election taking place March 2nd. He has vowed to continue with what he calls ‘the Putin Plan’ which, put simply means a defensive/aggressive stance when dealing with Western/Zionist interests that want to bring Russia under the thumb of the New World Order. In his first statement following the election, Medvedev is quoted saying his policies will be “A direct continuation of that path which was carried out and is being carried out by President Putin.” Despite a few protests from disgruntled candidates as well as from groups long-alleged to be creatures of western intelligence agencies aligned with or working for the US, Great Britain, Israel’s Mossad or all 3, the general mood in Russia is one of victory and confidence. Within minutes of the announcement that Medvedev was the projected winner, large groups of Russians marched through Moscow toward the U.S. Embassy to criticize American policies in Kosovo, Iraq and the Muslim world.
And there is good reason for such a festive mood these days. Medvedev is seen as something of an adopted son to Putin, who himself is wildly popular for his no-nonsense approach when it comes to Russia’s national interests. Putin is credited with pulling Russia out of the post Soviet-era corruption that marked the heyday of Boris Yeltsin’s drunken and compromised presidency. He nationalized industries that had been absconded and bled dry by unscrupulous predators holding dual citizenship in Israel and funneled the proceeds into the Russian economy. He raised the standard of living for virtually all Russians, paid off the debt to the International Monetary Fund and as a result Russia, flush with cash profits from her oil and gas sales is now posting a surplus of over half a trillion dollars.
Not a newcomer to politics or to Putin’s agenda, Medvedev served under the former KGB colonel as chief of staff, first deputy prime minister and then chairman of the state-controlled gas industry Gazprom. Given the thirst for fossil fuel in nearby industrialized Western Europe as well as in those Eastern European countries making up the former Soviet Union, Gazprom’s importance cannot be understated. Economically speaking it is like a loaded gun pointed at the industrial engines of those countries lying to Russia’s west. Putin has used Russia’s control over these resources as political leverage with countries dependent upon her for this commodity and has exacted political concessions from them by using it, no doubt a policy that will continue under a Medvedev presidency.
Possibly the most important part of these recent developments is the fact that the new president has asked Putin to remain in government as Prime Minister and Putin has accepted. Although a post with diminished powers from those of the President, it still affords Putin the opportunity of remaining on the scene and personally overseeing the business taking place in Russia’s Legislative body, the Duma. Readers will recall that in the recent Parliamentary elections late last year, Putin’s ‘United Russia’ party secured close to 80% of the seats. That being said, with a friendly Parliament under his watch as premier, new legislation could easily be written greatly expanding the powers of Putin’s newly-acquired office of Prime Minister. Short of this, Putin will most certainly be there as an important advisor to Medvedev, and as demonstrated throughout centuries of history, advisors often have as much or more of an influence upon an executive than do those holding an elected official position. Besides this, should anything ‘unexpected’ happen such as Medvedev deciding that the responsibilities and rigors of his new job are too much, a new election would then take place in which Putin could legally run for a new term, as the Russian Constitution only bars a person from holding the office of the Presidency more than twice consecutively.
In terms of Russian foreign policy which–simply stated, means holding back the predatory designs of the Zionist cabal controlling the US and Western Europe’s most powerful countries, little if any change can be expected. Putin compared George Bush to a ‘maniac threatening people with a razor’ and Medvedev was quoted saying the US President was ‘semi-senile.’ Both men understand the nature of predators and it can be expected that the new president and his right-hand man in the Duma will continue to pour Russia’s growing wealth into modernizing her armed forces so that the world’s largest country possessing some of the world’s largest natural reserves does not go the way of Iraq and Afghanistan.
It can be anticipated that like flies at a picnic the West–and in particular the US, Israel and all their Zionist subagencies–will attempt to worm their way into the new Medvedev presidency through a combination of threats, bribes, flatteries and insults in trying to reclaim the territory the Neocons lost under the Putin presidency. In all likelihood though this appears doomed to failure, as the power base in Russia is diffused and yet united in its will to survive. If there is anything for which Russians are famous it is in playing chess and after viewing the devastation and carnage wrought on Iraq and Afghanistan as well as considering the vampiric designs the American/Israeli hydra has for other places around the world, the likelihood of the ruling establishment allowing a gun to be put to the head of Mother Russia with all six cylinders loaded is as likely as a January heat wave in Siberia or a cold day in hell. And in the end, it may very well be Russia’s determination to survive that may be the determining factor in driving a stake into the heart of the Zionist beast that has brought nothing but death to every country in which it has gone.
