Putin: ‘Love is the meaning of life’
Published time: November 07, 2014 20:21 Get short URL

Vladimir Putin is known for his sharp wit, but musings on love are a relative novelty. In an unexpected remark Friday, the Russian president spoke of the “meaning of life,” saying that for him “in general” it is love that matters.

Briefly digressing from politics, Putin ventured a philosophical observation that “multifaceted” love is the basis of all actions and the essence of being.

"The meaning of our whole life and existence is love," Putin told his audience at the 15th Congress of the Russian Geographical Society. "It is love for the family, for the children, for the motherland. This is a multifaceted phenomenon; it lies at heart of any of our behaviors."

Putin, who chairs the board of trustees at the Russian Geographical Society, went on to express his hopes that “joint work” would help strengthen love for the motherland.

"It is exactly the top priority which all of us should go after, and I am absolutely sure that we will succeed," he added.

Putin has spoken at length about the necessity to attract more interest in geography among younger Russians, saying it “can and should be one of the most interesting subjects in school.”

The president also suggested launching a National Geographical Quiz for testing knowledge in this field.

ZEROHEDGE: Crude Oil Prices Crashing....

Crude Crashing: Brent Is Most. Oversold. EVER

Tyler Durden's picture
 
Yesterday we lamented the ridiculously oversold levels in West Texas Intermediate, which as BofA calculated, has hit "oversold" levels for only the third time in six years. We assumed that this could be the basis for a short-term rebound. We were wrong, because we clearly had no idea just how determined the Saudis are to crush Putin into the ground courtesy of plunging oil prices.
As of moments ago, WTI has tumbled nearly $4, some 5%, to just over $81...

... which just goes to show how idiotic any reliance on charts is in a centrally-planned world, in which commodities are nothing but political weapons. Bottom line: based on its weekly RSI chart, WTI has just hit the most oversold levels since Lehman.


But to our rather great dismay, what is gong on with Brent turned out to be far worse, and as the weekly RSI indicator shows the selloff in Brent is now the worst, well, ever!

In other news: Andrew Hall, our condolences.

Warning to the World: Washington and its NATO & EU Vassals are Insane

Warning to the World: Washington and its NATO & EU Vassals are Insane

Paul Craig Roberts · September 3, 2014

Herbert E. Meyer, a nutcase who was a special assistant to the CIA director for a period during the Reagan administration, has penned an article calling for Russian President Putin’s assassination. If we have “ to get him out of the Kremlin feet-first with a bullet hole in the back of his head, that would be okay with us.”

As the crazed Meyer illustrates, the insanity that Washington has released upon the world knows no restraint. Jose Manual Barroso, installed as Washington’s puppet as European Commission President, misrepresented his recent confidential telephone conversation with Russia’s President Putin by telling the media that Putin issued a threat: “If I want to, I can take Kiev in two weeks.”

Clearly, Putin did not issue a threat. A threat would be inconsistent with Putin’s entire unprovocative approach to the strategic threat that Washington and its NATO puppets have brought to Russia in Ukraine. Russia’s permanent representative to the EU, Vladimir Chizhov, said that if Barroso’s lie stands, Russia will make public the full recording of the conversation

Anyone familiar with the disparity between the Ukrainian and Russian militaries, knows full well that it would take the Russian military 14 hours, not 14 days, to take all of Ukraine. Just remember what happened to the American and Israeli trained and equipped Georgian Army when Washington set its stupid Georgian puppets on South Ossetia. The American and Israeli trained and equipped Georgian army collapsed under Russian counterattack in 5 hours.

The lie that Washington’s puppet Barroso told was not worthy of a serious person. But where in Europe is there a serious person in power? Nowhere. The few serious people are all out of power. Consider the NATO Secretary General, Anders Rasmussen. He was a prime minister of Denmark who saw he could rise beyond Denmark by serving as Washington’s puppet. As prime minister he strongly supported Washington’s illegal invasion of Iraq, declaring that “we know that Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction.” Of course, the fool didn’t know any such thing, and why would it matter if Iraq did have such weapons. Many countries have weapons of mass destruction.

According to the rule that anyone who serves Washington is elevated, the cipher Rasmussen was elevated.

The problem with elevating unprincipled fools is that they risk the world for their career. Rasmussen has now put the entirety of Eastern and Western Europe at risk of annihilation. Rasmussen has announced the creation of a blitzkrieg spearhead force capable of blitzkrieg attack on Russia. What Washington’s puppet calls “the Readiness Action Plan” is justified as a response to “Russia’s aggressive behavior in Ukraine.”

RUSSIA FORCES ITS POPULAR BLOGGERS TO REGISTER — OR ELSE

RUSSIA FORCES ITS POPULAR BLOGGERS TO REGISTER — OR ELSE

August 20, 2014

SOURCE: CRYPTOGON

VIA: BLOOMBERG:

Russian President Vladimir Putin is taking names. Potentially thousands.

The former KGB colonel, concerned with how social media can be used to undermine his authority, this month expanded his regulation of media to the blogosphere, requiring those with at least 3,000 daily readers to register their real names and contact information. So far, about 580 bloggers in Russia have applied to register with the country’s communications regulator Roskomnadzor.

The government says this is needed so it can remove inaccurate or defamatory information on the Internet. But some bloggers fear it will limit free speech, allow Putin to close down blogs he doesn’t like and give him an excuse to block sites such as Twitter in the future.

The total number of bloggers who are required to register may be several thousand. Roskomnadzor may shut down the accounts of those who don’t follow the new rule. Roskomnadzor sent Eduard Limonov and Boris Akunin, who are known for their opposition to the government, requests to register their blogs, according to the daily newspaper Izvestia.

Les bouts se touchent - (the extreme ends touch)
by American Kabuki

During these tense times in geopolitics its easy to get caught up in the media hype and hoopla and banging of war drums, accusations and counter-accusations that fly in such tense moments.   Looming war, and civil insurgency in Ukraine, Iraq/Syria, martial law in Thailand, and the brutal leveling of Gaza in retribution for 3 teenagers killed in Israel (did anyone doubt those murdered kids would lead to war?).

I had a customer for many years that utilized my web servers for his web forums.  A psychologist by training, he was an expert in reverse speech analysis and human behavior.   He told me once of a college paper he wrote comparing the extremist literature of the John Birch Society, and Stokely Carmichael and other revolutionary groups of the late 1960s and early 1970s America.  

What he found was that the inflammatory rhetoric was almost word for word the same, from one end of the political spectrum to the other. The template remained the same, regardless of the ideology. He used the French phrase "les bouts se touchent", (hopefully I got the French correct - no doubt I will corrected if its wrong!) which means the (extreme) ends (of the political spectrum in this case) touch each other... that is, they are the same.

What I do know is that people are waking up world wide on a scale not ever seen in recorded history of this planet.  I have talked to Chinese that clearly see the corruption in their government, Japanese who see the bleak future its controlled elite offer their youth as an aging demographic clings to power. Russians who are every bit as awake as their American counterparts to the shenanigans their country pulls.

UPDATED: High Financial Affairs - The Battle for Control of the Global Financial System

Comments from AK: I got this in my email today. I don't know who the author is of this article. My comments will be in RED. 

Comments from D. at http://removingtheshackles.blogspot.ca will be in BLUE below. Edited 01/14/13 9:23pm est to add: To view the whole PDF with all links, document and pictures click HERE for New Tomorrow.

The author of High Financial Affairs: The Battle for Control of the Global Financial System sent this brilliant new article to me this morning.  Unfortunately it's in a PDF format and I can NOT get blogger to allow me to post PDF's.  I have copied the text of the file here for you to read and as soon as someone gets the PDF uploaded onto a site, I will edit in the link for it.  The PDF file contains documents and photos of many of the pieces of the puzzle that he lays out in the article.

Reading the High Financial Affairs article was a real eye opener - both in giving me pieces of the puzzle that I wasn't aware of earlier, and also tying together pieces of information that I do have to further information I was missing.  AWESOME!

I will add a few of my comments directly into this article in BLUE.  I figured it would be much easier to keep track of them that way instead of writing my comments altogether in a separate article.  I will be writing a separate update later this evening, with some more info on this subject and some updates on NOW.

If you haven't read New Tomorrow's articles that outline the history of the financial horror story we live in, both parts one and two are MUST reads.
