President Vladimir Putin is a globalist

The globalists' dilemma

They wanted to prevent it propagandistically, but Donald Trump has once again ignored the massed misgivings of the interventionist globalists and their informers: The American President met with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. The current "Lord of Darkness" - if you believe the media in this country too. Then there was even a joint press conference at which both even answered questions.
And Trump did not follow the guidelines that the globalists had made in the US Congress - in both parties - in the “liberal” media and in the secret services. The Jerusalem Post commented: “What did the Trump haters expect from him? That he insulted Putin at the press conference? Why should that be in America's national interest? [...] During the Second World War, Franklin Roosevelt shocked the world by entering into an alliance with Joseph Stalin that had only one purpose for the US President: to win the war. It is out of the question that Trump does not understand the facts regarding Putin. His charm offensive is brilliant. One might say that Trump is 'stupid as a straw', but he knows his goals very well. "
It sounded different with the mainstream here. The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung headlined: "It's a sad day for the world". Then she tried once again to hide the German difference to the politics of the current US administration behind a US reference: “In America, politicians and the media react in horror to Donald Trump's meeting with Vladimir Putin.” In the same paper it was said that Trump had Putin "laid the red carpet". Apparently the fact that both met on an equal footing is seen as a weakness. Obama's stupid word about Russia as a “regional power” is still in my head.
The social democratic one International politics and society brought the text of a columnist of the New York Times called David Brooks under the heading: "Donald Trump and the Suicide of the West". Here the first sentence was: "Yes, Trump is a traitor to democratic values." Because he talked to Putin? Anyone who argues in this way is deliberately ignoring the central sentence of both in Helsinki: the USA and Russia together have 90 percent of the nuclear weapons and therefore good relations between them are better than tense, bad ones.
If the Soviet Union and the USA had only proceeded from their “values” in the Cold War, there should never have been negotiations, agreements and contracts, for example to end the Cuba crisis, about nuclear weapons or about German affairs. Then the danger of nuclear war would have been even greater than it was anyway.
Once again, the question arises as to the reasons for the ever-increasing hysteria and abuse propaganda in matters relating to Russia. The obvious answer is the one that Hannes Hofbauer gave in his book: “Feindbild Russia”: It is the West’s fear of the “loss of hegemony”: “It has little or nothing to do with the politics of the Kremlin old enemy image Russia, however, saves some Western strategists from dealing with deeper causes of their own loss of meaning. "
It stands to reason that there are a lot of people sitting in the political centers, media houses and television stations who deliberately bring up all these lies, insinuations and wickedness in order to put Russia in the worst possible light and (re-) to produce. Anyone who regularly reads the political commentaries or watches the public broadcasters will find this assumption - with very few exceptions - confirmed day in and day out.
On closer inspection, however, this answer is not enough. Let's take a particularly perfidious comment on the Trump-Putin meeting, this time from “neutral” Switzerland. In the Neue Zürcher Zeitung the headline read: "The Kremlin cannot ask for a better actor in the White House than Donald Trump". It was also said that Trump played down “the aggressive course of the Kremlin” and that he lacked “clear ideas about the dividing contrasts and a realistic strategy”. Trump's presentation of the causes of the rift with Russia leads “astray”, while they are “well known”: “They consist in the Russian claim to weaken the influence of the West on the world stage and thus the role lost with the fall of the Soviet Union to regain as a great power. The consequences of this are the Russian military interventions in Georgia and Ukraine, the arms aid for the Syrian dictator Assad, the alliance with Iran, but also the demonization of Western values ​​in one's own country and the deliberate interference in Western election campaigns. ”This is followed by a cliché others, probably on the basic assumption that their repetition has created a public awareness that all of this is "well known".
In fact, Russia's role as a “great power” is much older than the Soviet Union, and with the renewed change in the political and social system there has not disappeared. The actions in Georgia and Ukraine were a reaction to the previous policy of using “Western values” as levers to install governments that were more acceptable to the West, something that is often kept quiet today. Aid for Assad was a response to the regime change wars of the West against Iraq and Libya with the well-known catastrophic consequences. And the Mueller investigation in the United States has brought nothing that the media hostile to Trump did not write back in 2016.
The author of the NZZ-Article's name is Andreas Rüesch, Swiss, born in 1967, and part of the international editorial team of the paper. He studied Eastern European history, economics and political science at the Universities of Zurich and Lausanne, and in 1996 he defended a dissertation on economic reforms under Gorbachev and Yeltsin. From 1998 to 2002 he reported for the newspaper from Moscow, then for six years from Washington.
Why such a reference to the biography? The man is probably a man of conviction. Westerners who have experienced the problems of the collapse of real socialism in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe obviously feel all the more encouraged in the Fukuyama attitude that only the West in its trinity of bourgeois parliamentarism, liberal democracy and a capitalist market economy is the last word in history. Then Gorbachev and Yeltsin were on the “right” path, while Putin's policy is a turn away from it - and an approach towards him is therefore treason or cowardice.
Regardless of this, Trump and Putin tried to make a policy of détente.
On July 24, German Chancellor Angela Merkel received the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, and Chief of Staff Valery Gerasimov in Berlin. Both came from Israel and traveled on to Paris. It was said that it was mainly about peace in Syria - based on a meeting between Putin and Trump in Helsinki.
