PUTIN ADMITS RUSSIAN LEADERSHIP INITIATED FALL OF SOVIET UNION!
In Tucker Carlson’s newly-released interview with Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, in a moment of historical candor, admitted that the Russian leadership “initiated the collapse of the Soviet Union.” Tucker completely missed the importance of what he just heard as Putin slyly claimed he “didn’t know why they would do this” and then wove a false tale about the aftermath of the “collapse” where Russia continually made overtures of peace and cooperation with the West, but which the US rejected repeatedly. Carlson buys all of this hook, line and sinker, and so will other conservatives who are eager to embrace Russia as the good guy in the war in Ukraine. Putin never admitted that this “collapse” was done to trick the West into thinking “Communism was dead,” and that we had “won the cold war.” In this week’s brief I will help readers see beyond Putin’s artful narrative, and show how the Soviets did this to gain Western aid, trade and technology to catch up as they were losing the economic and military arms race. And it worked. In fact, the US knew the Russians had faked their own demise and went along with it, because the globalists were still in the mode of building Russia and China as future enemies in order to eventually have one more world war that would finally force the US into a militarized global government.
Vladimir Putin doesn’t give interviews unless he is confident the outcome will be favorable to him and his war against Ukraine, and so it was not surprising to me that he welcomed the chance to be interviewed by Tucker, knowing that Carlson has already taken a pro-Russian view of the war and has been a key element in getting conservative Republicans to block aid to Ukraine.
Even before this interview Putin has taken great pains to craft a public image as a “Christian” (which he is not) and someone who is opposed to the Western trend promoting excessive tolerance for the LGBT agenda (which most rational people don’t agree with). And, this interview was clearly intended to reinforce Putin’s claim to be the victim of Western aggression, targeting Carlson’s core audience–Republican conservatives.
From Joel Skousen’s World Affairs Brief, 10/27/23
Putin Heart Attack? Several credible news reports surfaced about V. Putin suffering a heart attack but recovering, (some claim dying) and using body doubles to take his place, including during his recent trip to China. Moscow denies all reports, as expected. “Guards at Vladimir Putin’s residence reportedly entered the Russian leader’s apartment after hearing a loud crash before discovering the 71-year-old ‘lying on the floor next to the bed’.”
Joel Skousen has been studying the nuclear capability of Russia for over 30 years. He recently said “Russia has about 10,000 warheads on missiles, and we have 400.” We’ve been downsizing, while Russia has been upsizing. Russia’s anti-ballistic missiles can take ours out too, while we can’t reliably take theirs out, because ours have to actually strike the missile. Russia’s only have to get near ours and then explode.
Russia has EMP weapons that can take down our electricity for a year, during which almost all Americans would die from that alone: no heat, water, sewer, transportation, communication, food, etc..
Lisa Murkowski gutted the bill that had passed the House, which was supposed to start the hardening of our power grid. She’s a traitor in more ways than one.
So we’re sitting ducks. Russia doesn’t have the manpower to takeover the US after they strike us, which is why they’re allying with China, who wants arable land: our lower-48. Russia wants Alaska back.
Dumitru Duduman and many others have prophesied Russia and China nuking the USA. But it will start with civil unrest, which probably hasn’t happened fully enough yet, but soon could. The globalists, including Biden are working hard on it.
We have a small window of opportunity to get real Christianity happening, Jesus’ prayer in John 17 fulfilled “that the world will know” — and God’s standard in Ephesians 4:11-16 happening.
It could start from Anchorage, but we have to be serious about teaching and believing what the Bible actually says, so we actually abide in Christ, and do so together in unity “that the world will know,” Jesus’ promised in John 17.
A fairly well known pastor in Anchorage had a dream that Anchorage was a Christian city.
We can’t even feel the presence of God in our churches anymore. Spiritually, Anchorage has declined, big-time! Instead of cranking up the music to rock concert levels so people think something is happening during “worship,” how about everyone making sure they’re right with God and each other, like Paul always practiced doing (Acts 24:16).
Acts 24:16 “So I ALWAYS take pains to have a CLEAR CONSCIENCE toward both God and MAN.”
And have Jesus’ John-17 and Ephesians-4 goal as our goal.
We can lead the whole world into holiness, so we’ll be ready no matter what happens in this next decade.
From Must Read Alaska:
Defense Dept. report: China now has more than 500 nuclear warheads
The Department of Defense briefed reporters on the 2023 China Military Power Report that DOD delivered to Congress this week. In it, the Pentagon says that China now has 500 nuclear warheads, is deepening ties to Russia, and is increasing its aggression on Taiwan.
Putin said that no one in the world in their right mind would use nuclear weapons against Russia

Good discussion, including what happens if we get hit with an EMP weapon.
A short list, put together quickly.
James Perloff, published author and historian, joins guest host Matt Wakulik to discuss the actual events of World War 1 and World War 2, leaving the question, “Did we fight the wrong enemy?” [Gen. George Patton asked before the OSS killed him.]
The largest foreign flotilla to approach American shores patrolled the coast of Alaska last week. Nearly a dozen Russian and Chinese warships came dangerously close to the Aleutian Islands. The warships were shadowed by four U.S. naval destroyers and a P-8 Poseidon aircraft.
A spokesman for the US Northern Command confirmed to the Wall Street Journal that Russia and China carried out a combined naval patrol near Alaska. Russia’s Defense Ministry in Moscow said the Russian and Chinese vessels had carried out drills that involved communication training, and helicopter landings and takeoffs from the decks of each other’s ships. They also conducted a joint anti-submarine exercise in the Bering Sea where a mock target was destroyed.
“Look at what this [Ukraine] war is doing. We have pushed Russia into the embrace of China, which is the worst foreign policy outcome imaginable. It is not good for the national security of our country. And we now have Putin’s back to the wall.
Putin is the world’s leading nuclear superpower. We aren’t. He’s got 1,000 more nukes than we do, and their nukes are much better than ours. They can shoot down our nukes. We can’t shoot down theirs.” – Robert F. Kennedy Jr. @ 31:15, 8/14/23 [Ep. 16 RFK Jr. explains Ukraine, bio-labs, and who killed his uncle]

They have superiority, as well as nuclear (by far).

What Really Happened – Mike Rivero – Tuesday 6/27/23 – News, Analysis, Calls & Commentary
PDD-60 is Bill Clinton’s presidential directive changing “launch on first warning” to launch only after the US is actually hit with nukes, which Joel Skousen has documented, and has shown recently that it hasn’t been rescinded. This is the first time I’ve seen Joel say that he believes Russia and China would attack even if they believed we would launch our nukes on first warning, ignoring PDD-60.

THE CHANGING GLOBALIST STRATEGY ON WAR AND TERROR
As long-term readers know, I have long documented how the US Deep State drummed up the war on terror in order, in part, to create the image of the US as the “bully of the world” which would help Russia and China justify their eventual attack on the West. Their actions around the world has created a true “ugly American” reputation especially in the Middle East after its military invasions of Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, after falsely blaming these countries for the 9/11 attack which justified all the atrocities during the “war on terror.” –Terror which our own Deep State created. …
And relative to the coming war a subscriber asked how the Russians and Chinese will ever feel like they can win against the US even with a nuclear first strike, since they don’t actually believe that the US will use PDD-60 to stop our forces from launching on warning.
Investigative reporter Peter Schweizer has written a 40 page report that is a definite must-read for national security experts and those that want an insight into Clinton corruption with Russia in mind. Here is an in-depth summary about what it reveals about the Uranium-One deal. (Joel Skousen’s WAB)
Feb 7, 2022
During a joint news conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, President Biden is asked about the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.
“If Russia invades, that means tanks or troops crossing the border of Ukraine again, then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it.”
When asked how, the president says, “I promise you, we will be able do that.”
Definitely worth watching, but I don’t trust some of Zeihan’s analysis. He doesn’t seem to understand the globalists’ plans, and how Russia and China are planning to take the US out with EMPs and nukes. China wants the USA’s land, But he has some ideas that could pan out, based on lots of data!
“I don’t worry about China at all, he says.”

PROBABLE TIMETABLE FOR WWIII
In each year end brief, I reiterate my estimate of when I think war is coming. It hasn’t changed but bears repeating for new subscribers. Having some idea of the timing is important because this Third World War will be different than all other wars America has been involved with.
First, we’ll face peer capable enemies with powerful military forces. That hasn’t happened since we were up against Germany in WWII, and never occurred during our recent wars of intervention against lesser militaries in the phony “war on terror.” Fighting Russia and China will be very different, and the American mainland will be attacked.
Russia has the most powerful nuclear forces in the world, and China as the most powerful conventional forces and the world’s largest navy. Together they will be tough to beat, especially if our own globalist government absorbs a nuclear first strike on our military forces (in accordance with PDD-60) in order to force us into a militarized global government in response.
The pre-emptive strike will only happen, however, when both are ready. Russia is almost ready now with her nuclear forces, but will never be fully ready in conventional forces due to the weaknesses caused by the war against Ukraine. China, in contrast, is already ahead of the West in conventional forces, but still has more to build in order to feel confident going up against slightly superior technology in the West. Her growing nuclear arsenal is unknown but also growing steadily.
“The RS-28 Sarmat Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM), which Russia has projected as the “world’s deadliest missile,” has now entered serial production.”
We have no way to intercept this. We can’t even intercept most of Russia’s conventional nukes, because we have to actually hit the missile. Russia’s anti-ballistic missiles only have to get near ours; then explode.
Our government knows this, and also is doing nothing to protect us from EMP weapons, which would kill over 90% of Americans during the year without electricity.
Most of our national leaders are blackmailed by the globalists, or are globalists themselves. The USA must be taken out for the one-world government to happen.
We have a short window of opportunity now to get the real Christianity, Greatest Awakening happening “that the world will know” — Jesus’ prayer and promise in John 17; also God’s standard fulfilled in Eph. 4:11-16.
Joe Rogan & Peter Zeihan discuss the real reasoning behind why Russian invaded Ukraine.. they really had no other choice. Eventually they were going to be met with this fate so they decided to act sooner than later and with Putin being very old he knew this was the only chance in his lifetime that he could try and salvage the Russian state. But when they lose to Ukraine they will have to simply defend their area and accept defeat. What are your thoughts? Comment below
Peter Zeihan is a geopolitical strategist, speaker, and author. His latest book is “The End of the World is Just the Beginning: Mapping the Collapse of Globalization.”

Joel Skousen writes in World Affairs Brief, December 9, 2022 (http://www.worldaffairsbrief.com):
Found: Video of Christopher Storey Interview on Phony Fall of the Soviet Union: Storey of Great Britain was the only other person to expose the phony fall besides myself. Here is the excellent interview by William McIlhaney (Pronounced, Mac-il-Haney). The interview concentrates on Anatoliy Golitsyn’s two books, “New Lies for Old” and his follow up work, “the Perestroika Deception” predicting the phony fall, rather than the evidence of planned deception as I have cataloged. The latter book was essentially his extensive briefing to the CIA which they did nothing about—helping the Soviets cover for their fake demise in order to get aid and trade.
Most of us in Anchorage live within 10 miles of JBER military base, which is also true for most living in Eagle River.
Bill Clinton’s PDD-60 is still in effect, which eliminated “launch on first warning,” to instead absorb a first strike, to then launch with what?
As a token of good will, we’ve agreed to keep half of our one-dozen fleet nuclear subs in port at all times, so they can be easily taken out.
For those who live within 10 miles of a military base, blast protection would be needed. He recommends moving instead.
Some kind of fallout shelter is needed if downwind from a nuclear blast, even 600 miles away:
Joel is speaking to Mormons, of whom most probably live in Salt Lake City. He first says, for those living in Utah County (south of SLC), after a nuke is launched above Hill Air Force base (north of SLC), about a 60 mile distance, some kind of fallout shelter will be needed, if they’re downwind. Later, he says if the wind is coming from a different direction, they’ll still need a fallout shelter for the nukes that hit San Diego, Nellis Air Force Base or Area 51. San Diego is 600 air miles from Salt Lake City.
Apparently, a fallout shelter needs to also be substantial, because he says it costs one third the price of a blast protected shelter.
“Only Russia and China can throw an EMP strike [that would take down the entire US power grid], because it takes at least 2 or 3 super-EMP weapons, and it takes about 8 or 9 regular EMP weapons exploded at high altitudes.”
Cars will likely be disabled if they’re within a 300 mile circle under the explosion, so within a 150 mile radius from the explosion. Outside of that, cars “may shut down but will restart, hopefully.”
“There will be famine for at least a year, because the United States does not stockpile any of the [house sized] transformers…. They’re made in China.”
“Without any electricity, there will be massive pillaging.”
