Radio interview

I was interviewed this morning on CBC Radio on the subject of the Russia-related scandal engulfing America. You can listen to it at the link here. I first appear at the 12.27 minute point, then there’s someone else, then me again.

then click on where it says ‘listen to full episode’.

  1. This woman (another interwievee, not the host) – was so brainwashed. You actually can long time ago replaced such “talking heads” with basic programmable bots spewing mainstream handshakable propaganda. Because she aptly demonstrated how she lacks even a sliver of independent opinion, or any capacity for thinking for herself:

    – Russian economy in decline (satistical data is for loosers).

    – “Classic petrostate” that doesn’t produce anything [“that I know of”, rushes to add this clearly all-knowing woman].

    – Low business confidence in Russia… Sorry, but have to post this:

    Business confidence in Russian economy reaches annual high (November 2016)

    Russia Heads Into 2017 With Highest Business Confidence in Five Years (January 2017)

    Apparently, Putin also bought all those foreign rating agencies…

    And – of course! – she of all the people knows “what Putin really, really wants”. People who know that are dime for a dozen in the chattering classes of the Free West these days. Strokes their ego, I think.

    – “The reality is – Russia is a declining power”. Yes! Of course! Russia of 2017 is MUCH weaker than Russia of 1997! No develpmnet, no improvements – just continious. constant decline. D’uh!

  2. Oh man, I was half screaming “Could you read some of Russias effing economic statistics please?” at that other lady.

    For me as a Russophile, the question is if it is actually in our interest that our “western partners” continue to believe the “petrostate myth”. As long as they do so, they will be inclined to think that Russia will eventually collapse anyway, and thus be less inclined to do more reckless and alltogether dangerous forms of stupid shit to hasten “Russias inevitable collapse”.

    Close, but not quite. They will do things to try & harm Russia, count on it. What their ignorance will do is make their actions far less effective than they would be if they actually knew something about Russia.
