MAXIME Bernier, the leader of the People’s Party of Canada, has summed up the salient points of Tucker Carlson’s interview with Vladimir Putin.
In relation to Canada, Putin noted the disastrous stunt by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to host “heroic Ukraine war veteran” Yaroslav Hunka at a reception for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in the House of Commons in Ottawa, on Sept. 22, 2023. The 98-year-old veteran turned out to be a Nazi SS veteran.
Why this happened is the subject of all sorts of speculation, but it may have been a backhanded slap in the face for Russia, that sees the Ukrainian Nazis of the Azov Battallion, key allies of Zelensky, as the historic mortal enemies of Russia and the Russian-speaking populace of eastern Ukraine.
Putin himself confronted Zelensky over his alliance with the Nazis, asking how he could align that with his Jewish background and the fact that his father fought the Nazis. A long-held “conspiracy theory” is that this war is basically a part-fulfilment of the “three world wars prophecy” of Illuminist freemason Col. Albert Pike in a letter to the Italian revolutionary Mazzini. The letter has apparently been lost.
Bernier made the following comments on a post on X: “I have said it multiple times in the past two years, and Putin confirms it in his interview with Tucker: The West’s sanctions against Russia were a major geopolitical and financial blunder. We shot ourselves in the foot. We pushed the Russians in the arms of the Chinese.
“We gave a new impetus to the BRICS. We encouraged them to dedollarize and create a parallel trade and financial system. And we pushed dozens of emergent countries to side with them. It’s the West that’s becoming isolated in the world today, not Russia.
“Meanwhile, the US is going bankrupt and its military empire will collapse with its financial might. The West must give up its arrogance and find a new, more realistic role that ensures peaceful coexistence in a multipolar world.
“The Americans are and will always be our neighbours and closest friends and allies. But we don’t have to follow them in their delusional power trips and foreign military adventures, which make things worse and where they keep being defeated in the end.
“We should never have taken part in the war in Ukraine, but rather called for a ceasefire and peace negotiations. Corrupt politicians in Washington and Ottawa are more of a threat to our security, prosperity and freedoms, than Putin.
“Let’s hope that Trump comes back to the White House this fall, and that he quickly strikes a deal with Putin to end this pointless war that has killed a generation of young Ukrainian men.”
Meanwhile, Professor Gordon Flake, CEO of the Perth USAsia Centre at the University of Western Australia, told the ABC that Carlson was “used by Putin to get his message out”. Flake said it was bizarre that US conservatives were inclined towards Russia. What’s more bizarre is the US Left’s infatuation with a corrupt western corporate puppet who spends millions of dollars in “military aid” money on his private overseas mansions.
Flake and the ABC expressed alarm that US funding for Ukraine was “in danger” and the professor boiled it all down to the infantile “Russian invasion” narrative and amazingly, continued to push the “Russia interference in the 2016 election” baloney.
“The risk is in fact that if Donald Trump is reelected the US support for Ukraine will evaporate. The US support for NATO will evaporate, at least on a political level …. I don’t think it’s hyperbole to say it’s an existential threat to US democracy and at the same time an existential threat to the international system that the US has been so integral to building in the post-World War 2 era.”
And there we have the global establishment view in a nutshell, faithfully cracked open by some corporate/think tank-funded pseudo-academic outfit attached to a university.
