VLADIMIR PUTIN POKED AMERICA IN THE EYE on Thanksgiving Day, November 27 2008 - by sending two strategic bombers to carry out a patrol in Alaskan neutral waters.
The patrol was escorted by two US F-15 interceptors above the Arctic Ocean of the Alaskan littoral.
Putin’s naval expedition in America’s northern backyard followed on the heels of Russian President Dimitri Medvedev’s 8 day tour of Latin America from November 22-29 2008. The tour in America’s southern backyard included visits to oil-rich Venezuela, Brazil, Peru, and Cuba.
Medvedev’s visit coincided with the arrival at the Venezuelan port of La Guaira of a group of Russian warships. The warships included Russia’s nuclear-powered battle cruiser, Peter the Great. Joint naval exercises are scheduled for December 1 2008 which will involve live-ammunition artillery drills & mock-warfare maneuverings.
An agreement in which Putin will build nuclear reactors in Venezuela was also inked. Trade agreements between Russia and the South American countries of Brazil, Peru, and Cuba, (including military cooperation), were also signed during Medvedev’s trip. During Medvedev’s visit to Cuba, Fidel Castro told Medvedev, “We need to build a multipolar world.”
Putin’s geopolitical agenda in the Americas is to tilt Latin American leaders, already critical of the US, away from Washington towards Moscow. Venezuelan President Chavez has long expressed a need to protect himself from a possible US invasion, following a coup in 2002 that briefly removed him from power. Chavez claims the coup was backed by George Bush.
Since then Chavez has repeatedly called Bush “the devil.” Many in Latin America, (as well as in the US), agree with Mr Chavez. View The Video Here.
AS AMERICA LOSES ITS INFLUENCE far beyond its own borders, Latin American nations are now reacting against America’s overbearing policies towards them. “Most countries of the region share Russia’s non-support for the idea of a unipolar world,” observes Vadim Teperman, Director of The Institute of Latin America in Moscow.
During his visit to Chavez on November 26 2008, another “poke in America’s eyes” was made by Medvedev in his opening speech:
“Russia’s strategic bombers recently visited Venezuela. Now Russian warships are here. Our coordinated efforts have as its aim both regional and global stability.” View Entire Story Here.
America’s global hegemony is coming to an end. Historically, the Monroe Doctrine, which outlined America’s policy of protecting its surrounding borders from outside interference, was held sacred by former American leaders. But while American leaders are today seeking to police the world, Putin has invaded with impunity America’s own backyard…

Brother Nathanael @ November 30, 2008
Dear Friends -
Well - it looks like the only one who is bringing about “Change” is not the puppet of the Jews and the Military establishment, Barky Obama, but Russia’s Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin.
The question in my mind is why hasn’t the Jewish-occupied press reported on all these going-ons in Americas own backyard, both in Latin America & in Alaska? I think its because America is now impotent to do anything about it. Sure, Amerika can push around weak nations like Iraq and Afghanistan, speading its terror to over 4 million Iraqi & Afghan nationals, BUT, to challenge Russia, (nuclear armed Russia), well that’s quite a different story.
Vladimir Putin has bided his time with regard to Amerika’s violations of international law, global terrorism, encircling Russia with NATO encroachment, bombing & killing Serbian civilians by Clinton & the Jew Albright, violating Serbia’s legal right to Kosovo, missle shield agendas in Eastern Europe — since his ascendancy to the leadership of Russia in 1999. Now all of Amerika’s crimes against humanity abroad is coming home to roost by the actions of Vladimir Putin. He is NOT biding his time any longer. He is moving really fast while Amerika is declining both economically & morally.
I belong to the same Church that Putin belongs to, the Russian Orthodox Church. I spoke with a priest of the Russian Church recently who attended a Church service with Vladimir Putin. He told me that Putin was constantly making the sign of the Cross over him — which cannot be feigned. Maybe once or twice - but continually? no — this cannot be faked.
Putin is promoting the Church in Russia as well as Christian curricullums in Russia’s public schools. But here in Amerika, the Jews are promoting HOMOSEXUALITY & LESBIANISM in public schools beginning with elementary school children.
While Amerika is becoming like the old Soviet Union with all of its godlessness, Russia is emerging as a Christian society.
May Christ Bless Vladimir Putin & I pray that the leaders of Amerika will repent of their Anti Christian ways and policies. But I don’t hold out too much hope for the near future, as there now are a record number of ANTI CHRISTIAN JEWS in Congress, and Barky Obama is just a puppet of the rascist *Anti Christ Jew* Rahm Emanuel - and the militarists, who are ANTI CHRIST fascists.
On another note, *our* site, Real Jew News, is now up to 600,000 page views per month. Many who click onto Real Jew News from a simple Google Search like, “Rothschild Jews” or “bailout Jewish bankers” click on multiple pages after reading the article they originally were interested in. For instance, someone came on recently to an article and stuck around for 40 more articles to read!
Some of you have sent in donations and I thank you for this. Bandwidth costs, Internet hosting costs, Web management costs, research materials, are part of running *our* very popular Site. And I say *our* because a Real Jew News “family” is being formed.
I love you all and I thank you all for YOUR love and support. +BN
Greetings in the Lord from No Cal in US of Talmudistan:
“Blessed are the true peacemakers”, Putin and Medyedev.
I am not disturbed by their excursions to Cuba and South America, or their flybys in Alaska’s neutral waters. The Russian military is finally getting back on its feet, Putin has had to build it from the ground up with the arms industry; he’s still working with old Soviet era Air Force aircraft “workhorses”, revamping them. It’s not so much a show of old Cold War power as it is a show of stretching out from a cramped position and stretching out some muscles. Russia’s been out taking air patrol “strolls” since summer 2007.
It’s not the Cold War anymore. Russian Fleet can go where ever it wants to. Permanent base in Syria? No problem under Maritime Law and treaties. US could do the same thing, if they were smart, instead of tweaking Syria and Iran’s tails.
US Navy makes diplomatic port calls all of the time.
Getting back some of the the oil industry from the oligarchs has helped, as well as Putin and Medyedev’s committment to “rule of law”. In January, 2009 the Russian Parliament should have a comprehensive anti-corruption package back on Medyedev’s desk. Russia’s got the laws, now it’s housecleaning more corruption.
Military and related industries suffered for years from shortage of fuel, demoralized Army and heroin addiction after Afghanistan.
Alaska F-15 escorts, no big deal, all standard operating procedure. Russia would have to notify Alaska civil and military air traffic control to transit air vectors. The US or Alaska Air National Guard would “scramble” on known peacetime footing, only 2 F-15’s, no active rockets. That’s just going up to wag wings at each other, say “Howdy” and exchange latest baby pictures. We won’t tell Bushco though.
Economics are good, so the soldiers have been getting pretty good pay the past couple of years. Putin also restructured miltary tables of organization and chain of command to “rapid regional response” from old Soviet system when all responsibility lay with officers and higher ups.
Now Putin has gone “American-style” in that non-comissioned officers [corporals, sargents, etc] have a lot more training, decision-making and mission responsibility. I was pleased to see this with the S Ossetia mission–well disciplined, and even the enlisted men had a certain level of dignity that the old Sovietski grunts never had.
I personally like feisty Chavez. Venezuela has taken in over 100,000 refugee Columbians from Bush Dope, Inc cocaine wars, and Venezuela is no well-off country as it is. Chavez repeatedly offered to assist with Columbian drug lords.
Chavez also made a private deal with a Harlem neighborhood community board to sell cheap heating oil to the tenement poor a winter or two ago at 1/3 the price the gougers were foisting on the neighborhoods.
The “real world order” is beginning to assert itself, but its going to take quite awhile to tear down the armchair Zionist global utopian dreams.
Excellent commentry Brother Nathanael.
I am so grateful there is people like yourself to keep us informed. We are bombarded with useless informaton from the mainstream media as to what really should concern mankind, especially in this day and age.
Just wondering if your aware of infowars.com and prisonplanet.tv They have loads of info that is important for people to know. Not that I’ve heard and read everything that is on there though.
I am of Greek Orthodox descent in Australia and am a strong supporter of Russian Orthodoxy and Russia. So happy Russia is Orthodox Christian again. Just wonderfing if you have read about the orthodox prophecies relating to Constantinople and what role Russia plays with the events that will unfold relating again to these prophecies. It’ interesting when someone not born into a christian life can develop such strong faith in our true saviour. Then on the other hand you have someone else that is brought up in a christian family and is either lukewarm in their faith or even changes to other beliefs.
Keep up the excellent work.
Haven’t read all your articles yet though.
Dear Br. Nathanael,
Up to 600,000 page views a month. Surely, all of us must graciously thank our Lord and Savior!
To be sure, the manifold EVILS these godless types in the Governments, Banks, Corporations, Media, etc. have caused and will continue to be caused cannot go on and on.
Those who have the ‘Official Responsibility’ for the peoples of their nations both in and of the State as well as the Church cannot keep their heads buried in the sands like ostriches PRETENDING they don’t see what is taking place all across this planet earth under His Kingship.
This global geopolitical moral cancer within all the nations of our world can no longer be ignored nor dismissed.
Our Lady of Fatima unequivocally declared that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit would use RUSSIA as God’s “Chosen Instrument” TO PUNISH the entire world.
The United States of America, for all of its hubris, its manifold crimes against its own citizens and those of other nations, will be held accountable to God’s Judgement. The United States of America does not have some sort of ‘Divine Get-Out-Of-God’s Judgement Free’ Card in its game of geopolitical Monopoly.
Many contemporary Christian visionairies and apparitionists have ALL relayed their Messages to the American public and to this corrupt, lying, self-seeking, high on hubris collection of ‘Public Officials’ that are ours to bear and endure these past decades…’REPENT! REPENT! REPENT!’
The Mother of God unequivocally informed the peoples of ALL the nations of our world, to include these United States of America, that only SHE can help us now.
The USA’s last and only hope now is but for the citizens of the USA and its Government to beg, to plead, to grovel before the Bishops of the Church beseeching them to perform the public and solemn Collegial Consecration of RUSSIA to the Immaculate Heart of the Son of God’s human Mother.
The Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God Incarnate, is God’s Own Personally Chosen Instrument to bring forth His MERCY and FORGIVENESS to every last human being past, present and future.
For the peoples of our World as well as for the prelates of His Church to IGNORE God’s Own Divine Will for Human Salvation History is the epitome, the apex, of human folly!
Have people the world over lost sight of what an Incredible Act of Divine Mercy it is on God’s Own Part to extend the members of our Human Race His FORGIVENESS? God did not spare nor forgive those rebellious Angels who joined Lucifer in their revolt and rejection of God!
Keep on posting all about Russia, my dear Brother Nathanael, for you are REPORTING on how and what God Himself is doing with the nation of RUSSIA in preparing her to be ‘God’s Chosen Instrument’ TO PUNISH the entire World.
Is there ‘NO FEAR OF GOD’ left in the minds and hearts of US Government officials, in US citizens as well as those of the UK, Israel, etc.???
- Fr. Joseph
And I thank our Merciful Lord in hearing my votive Mass petitions in blessing and prospering this website of yours, Br. Nathanael.
I, for one, still believe that obtaining God’s Mercy upon our World and its 6 billion human inhabitants is STILL possible!
- Fr. Joseph
I have had a problem posting comments. This is a test
We as Americans have but ONE Mortal enemy who HAS the ability to destroy us. These demons are in Biblical TRUTH - THE SONS OF THE DEVIL! We know them as JEWS! The JEw has many faces - ALL evil ALL deadly - ALL demonic - whether he weares the face of the Marxist or the face of the Zionist - it is all from the SAME evil seed.
One simple FACT that most Americans seem to gloss over like yesterday’s news — is that EVERY ‘COMMUNIST’ horror that we and other freedom loving people of the world have suffered since the begining of the 20th century was the ‘child’ of the Jew - PLAIN AND SIMPLE! Red China - USSR -Korea- VietNam - Castro’s Cuba and MORE - ALL FROM THE EVIL MIND OF THE JEW!
There is not ONE horrible moral malady in America today that was not the doing of the Jew. I DEFY ANY honest moral American parent today to deny that he or she is not appalled by the abysmal filth - the flood of JEW lies - of Jew filth that permeates every pore of what our children see and hear on their ‘Jew tube’.
Ozzie Ozborne PROUDLY declares - on an advertisement for a children’s demonic video game - that he is the prince of hell. Levis clothiers use an add depicting two young people (not a maried couple) pulling each others pants off and pawing each other like dogs in heat - to enhance the desireability of their ‘ALL - AMERICAN’ fashions.
Today - no child can watch TV for more than a few minutes without experiencing an IN YOUR FACE JEW add for any number of products that will make the penis larger for more pleasure - YET I have not heard in ANY conversation ANYWHERE from ANY parent the SLIGHTEST hint of outrage over the moral destruction of the innosence of their OWN beloved sons and daughters!
Had this filthy Jew scum been exposed to innocent children when I was a child/teen - there would have been an outrage carried on the front page of every newspaper in the entire country - PERIOD!
This same pervasuve filth is now pushing the envelope of the moral sensibilituies to OUTRAGEOUS levels - yet we ignorant clueless ‘useful idiots’ continue to offer the innosence of our children on the altar of passiveness and indifference - as the entire nation continuee to rot from the inside.
ALL Of these horrific disgraceful events have gone unchallenged - as has our foreign policies of imperistic agression murder destruction and genocide - ALL IN THE NAME OF THE JEW! How much more ourright ECONOMIC CRIME will we willingly ignore as our livelyhoods - dreams life savings and legacy to our children are stolen by Jew bankers?
We had it all - and we blew it. What is TRULY sad is the fact that all of you young people - the ME ‘NOW’ - ‘if it feels good - do it’ generation haven’t a clue as to who we were before your parents screwed up everything with their greed and ignorance.
We traded Christ and goodness for the demonic essence of ALL evil which is the JEW. We traded most of our freedoms for a few lies of false securities - and now have lost both AND deserved neither.
We had achieved a universal dream - through hard work - courage - goodness - integrity - vigilence and wisdom - the envy of all mankind - and just pissed it ALL away FOR NOTHING! — because we ALLOWED the scum of small nation of the children of Satan to poison our Eden with their demonic parasitic treacherous lying filth.

ABOUT THE COMMENTS SECTION:
Our Real Jew News Comments Section is EXTREMELY POPULAR. Because it is SO POPULAR with thousands of reads per day, Google is now picking up our Comments Section on Searches. SO - Here are some guidelines to get your comment posted.
1. STAY ON TOPIC IF YOU CAN - Hoff, you have a perpetual habit of going OFF topic. Though some of your comments OFF TOPIC are good, (and because they are so good I put them through), try as much as you can to abide by the new guidelines. But if there is something that MUST be said, like Hoff’s & Joe Cortina’s recent post, then do write it up and I will immediately see how important it is to post.
2. GOOD GRAMMAR & SENTENCE STRUCTURE - Also, divide thick one paragraph texts into multiple paragraphs. See how Fr Joseph puts together a beautifully formed comment. Thank you my dear friend Fr Joseph! You know I love you & appreciate you here on OUR site, Real Jew News. George G; Katherine Julianne; Michael K; Joe Cortina, also put together beautifully formed texts as many others of you do. I thank you for this.
3. SUPPORT YOUR ASSERTIONS - Someone yesterday wrote that Geithner was an Episcopalian. I DELETED it because that is all that he wrote. He just made a “one liner” assertion with NO supporting evidence. This simply will not go here on our site.
Yes, Geithner married I believe a Methodist or Episcopalian gal. BUT, Geithner himself is a JEW. And he is raising his children, Benjamin & Elise (Jewish names for children) as JEWS.
How do I know this? I was raised as a Jew & have the inside track. This is why I am the ADLs worst nightmare. And I know they are hell bent, (they are children of Hell), on bringing OUR site, Real Jew News down.
4. STAY SANE. Some of you, (I am not pointing my finger at any particular poster), think that all NWO leaders are Jews. Comments constantly come in saying that Putin, Medvedev, Brown, Merkel, Tusk, Bush, are Jews. This is INSANE. Before it’s all over, someone will probably come up with Obama being a Jew!
We are forming a true Real Jew News “family.” So let’s show the ANTI-CHRIST Jews that we are of one mind, one spirit, and present our case with beauty of form, supporting evidence, and shot through with Christian piety.
Love you all! +Brother Nathanael
Dear Joe Cortina @ http://mynameisjoecortina.wordpress.com/ -
I AGREE with you 100% on Jewish filth in fashion, TV, & Toys.
I grew up as a Jew as you know AND these fields: “fashion” “TV” & “TOYS” are Jewish-occupied fields.
I am glad that you are no longer having posting problems because of the Anti Spam control.
I encourage you to make regular comments as you have MUCH to say and you SAY IT with great moral force. AND - you back up everything you assert with FACTS.
PLEASE VISIT HARD-HITTING JOE CORTINA’S FACT FILLED “TELL IT LIKE IT IS” Web Site @ http://mynameisjoecortina.wordpress.com/
My Dear Brother Nathan
You always write about the jew mafia and I always write about the jew mafia, hence I can never be off topic. Think about it Br Nathan 9o))))
For close to three years I have read, thought and written about the jew mafia 24-7-365 days a year (I don’t have to work for a living), and sometimes I just get really feed up and don’t want to hear about a jew once more in my whole life… I really think I read about most everything there is to know about the mafia jews and then I do a search: Jew plus key word and I go: - WHAT…?!
Typically I wake up o3:00 … What is Br Nathan up to? or Judicial-Inc.biz? What??? Jew + keyword: Search … and all the sudden the clock is 16:30 pm, and I’m giving RJN an exclusive. The stuff I post here at RJN is not someting I got stockpiled, its fresh from my keybord.
Br Nathan is right, my postings are good 9D) and no Br Nathan, I’m never off topic 9D)))))
I will soon start a new page on my website Hoff2.wordpress.com with my own writings, that will give Br Nathan a relife, all I will post at RJN is an ingress, the first paragraph and the link.
And buddy … Send Brother Nathan some cash! It’s our site!
The jew mafia problem can be complicated or the jew mafia problem can be easy to understand. I will make the Jew Mafia problem easy:
The mafia jews are the worlds most criminal people.
Why in the name of anything would anyone support the most criminal people in the whole world?
Our Lovely Brother Nathanael,
Thank you for so much moral and spiritual encouragement in these transitional times when tares will be gathered first, bound in bundles to burn them, and the wheat will be gathered into Lord’s barn.
Not everything goes as they plan (filthy jew-created illuminati). In the outstanding movie of Aaron Russo “America: Freedom to Fascism” he tells us his story how he met Nicholas Rockefeller and he had revealed to him 11 months previous to the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001, that “an event” would happen that would lead to an invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, and would lead to the unwinnable “War on Terror” (unfortunately they succeeded in that one), and then they would go after Hugo Chavez (illuminati with their slave puppet bush failed). Citing your excellent article “President Chavez has long expressed a need to protect himself from a possible US invasion, following a coup in 2002 that briefly removed him from power. Chavez claims the coup was backed by George Bush.
Since then Chavez has repeatedly called Bush “the devil.”” It is too loud to call him devil since he is just a devil’s puppet, who did an “excellent job” to abolish US Constitution and undermine US sovereignty for the zionist cause.
As Texe Marrs reveals in his site Gog, Magog, and the Scroll of Bush—Jewish Sanhedrin Honored President George W. Bush as “Chief Prince of Meshech and Tubal” for his “great accomplishments”.
F15 that escorted the bombers were American or Canadian not Russian as was stated in your article, Brother Nathan.
We are witnessing a tit for tat game playing out.
As long as America is in their back yard they will be in American’s backyard.
I was saddened to see Russians resume the cold war flights but equally saddened to see Americans in Georgia and the missile bases in Poland etc..
The last thing Americans need is another war especially with Iran .
Iran is no broken back country like Afghanistan and Iraq.
Well at any rate this is not a good sign. good coverage Brother Nathaniel
Dear David -
Yes - Katherine Juliane alreday pointed it out to me that it was US interceptors that escorted the Russian bombers.
I am correcting it now. Thanks for the reminder. +BN
It seems to be fairly apparent that the main way in which the British-Jew-Zionists afflict the people they want to control is not through direct manipulation of the affairs of state in an overtly responsible way, but through the corrupting influence of money, sex, and drugs upon the political parties and information networks themselves.
This leaves the “statists,” who are themselves personally and overtly responsible for the affairs of state constantly fighting isolation from the public at the hands of a nearly foreign occupied press. They probably find it demoralizing too, that the public is so grossly hypnotized by their media, that questions of the utmost civic importance go unanswered for the lack of even being asked.
It would be irresponsible to view everyone in our government as a fool or a partner in crime with those who are really doing the damage. And yet, how our enemies would love to turn us against the few responsible and well-meaning types who have managed thus far to keep us all from getting destroyed by our enemies. It stands to reason that such people exist, for if they did not our fate would already have become sealed, with nothing left to talk about.
So, it is not yet that time, not the disaster that stalks us yet. And there must be some people whose names we will not recognize who are there within this system trying awful hard to not let it fail, for all the harm that would certainly come of it. There certainly must be quite a few like this just for things to function from day to day. And for this reason it can truly be said that all that separates us from a better future is an awakening to the urgent need for all good people to stand.
The spirit must be kindled with the light of truth, and the truth spread like fire. Thus, by the grace of God working upon the hearts of humans, miracles may occur. In fact, this has always been our only hope, and has always been the final decider in the end. The people must reject the sin available through the media. It must start in peoples hearts, their rejection of the worldly and illusionary, and I believe it is.
And lastly, we must not take to heart that that ugly distortion of out true image is really us. The media reflects a damning image back to us, in order to convince us of our own damnation. This is not an accurate picture, it is not even an attempt, and it is not who we all really are. The sway of hypnotic suggestion is pervasive, and real. The people are caught up in the alluring head space made just for them, but it is not the true dream. And people are beginning to awaken even now.
Thanks to our Brother and all of you for the interesting up - to - date article and comments.
I want to post here, I hope I am not off topic,the link of an article with a picture of Medvedev and Castro. They are visiting the only Orthodox Russian Church in Cuba, Havana, built by Fidel Castro as a gesture of appreciation to Russia and the Russian people.
By the way some friends of mine and I myself visited Cuba and I have to tell you dear friends that the situation there is not so bad.
I met in Cuba the nicest and very spiritual people. Hope to visit the Russian Church in Havana one day soon.
My congratulations go to our Brother on the continuous success of our Holy Site, up to 600,000 views! Next year they will be over 1,000,000…!!!!
Dear Friends I was thinking that we have to show our Appreciation to our brother for his tireless work here and Thank him. I decided to send him a small surprise for our Holy Christmas…. I will mail it next week and hope he will like it.
Lots of Love to all,
Take a minute to e-mail the Patriarch of the Western Church, the Bishop of Rome, to order the public and solemn Collegial Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of the Most Holy Theotokos.

Excellent comment Michael K.
It’s interesting that Russian Orthodox churches are being built in countries were Russia is building economic and military ties to countries (Cuba and Venezuela anyway) and helped build an Orthodox church in Serbia.
Also help build the largest statue of Christ in the Mid East. http://www.en.rian.ru/video/20080929/117272489.html
Guess what country Israel or Syria?
Look at alliances were US is involved there burning down churches in Kosovo 700+ and who’s KLA terrorist PM vested Israel.
“Hashim Thaci may be the tough-talking prime minister of Kosovo and ex-commander of the Kosovo Liberation Army, but he gushes over Israel like a kid recalling a trip to Disney World.”
“I love Israel. What a great country! Kosovo is a friend of Israel,” the grinning Thaci, 39…”
“In Kosovo — where Thaci’s campaign adviser was an Israeli”
Then in different countries with US pressure Chabab-Lubravitch hold huge Menorah ceremonies.
It’s amazing how far Jewish influence reaches in Western countries even Iceland.
Iceland’s president’s wife is Jewish with strong ties to Israel.
I don’t know if you are aware but I think in 07 in the US the office of global anti-Semitism released a list of what they say is anti-Semitic which include saying that Jews own the media, were responsible for the Bolshevik revolution, etc.
It didn’t get much attention even on the net so it’s not surprising that you didn’t cover it in one of your articles.
Although you can read other articles on your site debunking all the points they say is anti-Semitic.
If the former Kremlin is in league with the Illuminists, then can someone please explain why the “godless” ones (Russians) will be surrounding Israel in the last days?
Do they want the world once the US collapses (inevitable)?
I do know the big Zionist bankers they will make things as horrible as possible before that in order to make us accept all abominations to keep our foolish and selfish luxuries….
“In Kosovo — where Thaci’s campaign adviser was an Israeli”
What is the name of Thaci’s Israeli advisor?
Dear Dave -
You are moving from false premises.
#1. Putin is NOT in league with the illuminists. See my article, “Putin’s Purge Of The Rothschild Money Changers” - by clicking at the top of this article, “Putin Articles.”
#2. Where do you get that the Russians are the “godless” ones? It certainly is nowhere to be found in the Holy Scriptures. Did you get this from some imposed, imported, forced interpretation of the Scriptures from some “end times” nut?
#3. Where do you get that the Russians will be surrounding Israel in the last days? This is certainly NOT to be found anywhere in the Holy Scriptures. Perhaps you think erroneously that “Gog & Magog” as first mentioned by the prophet Ezekiel and then mirrored in The Revelation of St John, refers to Russia? How so? Can you prove it? Nay, you can’t - simply because it ain’t so.
Gog & Magog is a figurative, symbolic term referring to the enemies of the “Israel of God,” that is, as St Paul tells us, the Church.
Truly, Orthodox Christian Russia, which my fellow parishioner of the Russian Orthodox Church, Vladimir Putin, is now promoting in the Russian Federation, is NOT Gog & Magog.
Quite the contrary. Russia is emerging as a true Christian nation. Lavrov, Medevedev, and his pious wife, Svetlana, and Putin, are all devout Orthodox Christians.
Please get your premises straight, and then many of your perplexities will be solved.

I don’t know I quoted from the Jewish news article I posted the link to.
It did not mention his name.
If I find out I will let you know.
BALKAN ACTION COUNCIL URGES NATO
INTERVENTION, GROUND TROOPS IN KOSOVO
Look who is on the committee Zbignew Brezinski, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, etc.
As I asserted with Brezinski the Balkans wars was just a modern day Operation Blue.
Folks, i fully realize some of you literally are enamored with Vladimir Putin. For the 8 years he was in office, i also was. But the question remains of whether he built the edifice of the Russian economy on a firm foundation or on a shifting sand?
The future will show. As of now, Russia is going through its Stabilization Fund at an alarming rate and will run out within a matter of months.
There is not a stable manufacturing base to withstand the storm. And 60% of Russia’s food is imported.
Now if you ruled Russia as a patriot, surely the numbers would tell a different story!
Or perhaps you were forced to do the little you could, but you did try.
You ruled for 8 years, but you never prohibited the horrible practice of abortion, or reigned in the television that promotes immoral filth, or distributed the wealth back from the oligarchs.
You did stabilize Russia, and it did not fall into the hands of the real patriots.
But now the deception will come to light as the crisis tests what kind of Russia you built during the 8 years.
May i be wrong in my prediction, but we are soon to be sorely disappointed.
“but we are soon to be sorely disappointed.”
Dear Visitor, would you please support your statement?
“You did stabilize Russia, and it did not fall into the hands of the real patriots.”
Dear Visitor, how do you know that Russia is not into the hands of the real patriots? Again would you support your statement as our Brother repeatedly asked us to do. If Putin were not a real patriot than Russian people would not have voted for him to be the best political leader ever in Russian history.
Concerning abortions, Putin is not a dictator to tell Russians what to do. They have democracy there and people themselves decide how many kids to have. But Putin fights against abortions with different methods. Creates better conditions for young mothers and young families. The results are very encouraging as I read in Russian newspapers. The birth rate is getting higher and the number of abortions is down
” And 60% of Russia’s food is imported.”
Dear Visitor, where did you read that 60% of Russia’s food is imported. I mean in what Russian, not western, newspaper? Please, post here the link. Thanks in advance. I know they are importing food but I have heard different % not 60%.
About movies and entertainment activities. Again, it is democracy there. I personally heard Putin saying that he was not happy with the quality of a lot of movies broadcasted by Russian TV. From January 2009 Russian Government will spend more money on movies and entertainment projects which will be of much higher quality. Putin already had a meeting with Russia’s best filmmakers to discuss the issue, I read in the Russian press.
Also, they strengthen their education. Around 6 Universities had been closed and new ones, high tech, will be and are open. Unfortunately a lot of their best professionals in different fields now work in US and The West but a program for getting them back in Russia has been recently created. I know this from a Russian friend who is involved, to same extent, in the project.
Dear Friends, I would like to remained you that this week December 4th, 12:00 (noon) Russian time, Putin will answer questions posed by his Russian fellows. There we would find answers to our questions about Russia, I hope.
Lots of Love,
PS just found the link…
As much as I admire your work, i must point out:
The fact that citizens of the USA think that latin america (I am colombian), is their “back yard”, is reason enough for us to WANT to ally with any other power.
You wrote: ‘Take a minute to e-mail the Patriarch of the Western Church, the Bishop of Rome, to order the public and solemn Collegial Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of the Most Holy Theotokos.’
As an Orthodox website, Br. Nathanael has stated time and again, that the ORTHODOX POV must prevail on this site.
Neither traditionalist nor ecumenicist Orthodoxy allows for the ‘Divine dismemberment theology’ that Rome uses, i.e., the [so- called] Sacred Heart, the Immaculate Heart, etc.
Nor do they even CONSIDER the ‘Patriarch of Rome’ to be filled by the Roman Church’s Pontiff! Many Orthodox I know consider it a VACANT SEE, waiting to be filled by a truly ORTHODOX Patriarch- and no other pov is allowed!
Therefore, to include theological dead-ends, and even theological falsehoods (your statement that ‘Our Lady of Fatima unequivocally declared that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit would use RUSSIA as God’s “Chosen Instrument” TO PUNISH the entire world’) is UTTERLY false. The various and sundry accounts of Fatima published by Catholic sources, with Imprimaturs etc,, all clearly state that: UNLESS AND UNTIL Russia became ROMAN CATHOLIC, she was damned- this is a fact, the quotes are too numerous to ignore.
I don’t know exactly what Br. Nathanael wants to do with your comments, but, as one who came out of Rome, and remembers at least what she WAS, what she IS today under Pope “Benedict Arnold,” as a former Novus Ordo participant, this stuff is NOT Christianity!
Since many here seem to be either Rusophilic and/or Orthodox, I don’t feel out of place in commenting on this thread that Fr. Joseph seems determined to continue to post on, but his misrepresentations and outright fallacies of history, fact, and theology vis a vis Rome and Russia, are too many to ignore….
How big is Americas back yard?
It seems its every region of the world.
Naval intercept will be a blow to CIA’s nacro-trafficking operation there.
Wouldn’t be suprised if an Israeli or Mossad was involved in the drug trafficking operations in Latin America.
Do you know the CIA shifts drugs from Columbia from Florida.

I think Br Nathanael has said time and again that this is OUR website and that Christian viewpoints are acceptable.
There are Orthodox writing here who know that many, many R Orthodox were martyred at the hands of the at-the-time Bolshevik controlled, Moscow Patriarchate.
You are the one who wants to argue theology and as one who has seen your website, I seriously doubt that too many Christians of any stamp would accept your ideas that Christianity is for only one race of people
just wanted to say that i love you, brother. and please keep up the great work. i would donate more if i could afford it. perhaps in a few weeks i can again.
and it is really great to hear of Chavez & Putin kicking out the corrupt Zionist bankers from not only their governments, but from their countries altogether! this is the real revolution that must happen worldwide, as Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson and Abraham Lincoln and dozens of others have always warned us that central banks are for more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.
Over 8 years of Putin’s government, if one counts about 1.5 million abortions per year, 10 million unborn children lost their lives.
Putin’s rule had some positive moments, but it had those negative moments as well.
Imagine if you were a devout Orthodox Christian and in a position to pass a law prohibiting abortion. Such law is often introducted into the legislature by right politicians, but United Russia, a party on record as completely supporting Putin, keeps defeating the bill.
Folks, in conditions when the situation does not look good, it is natural to look for “saviors”, but only Jesus Christ was the Savior.
Putin is not without controversies, one of which I just gave you.
I interpreted our “back yard” to a reference to the neutral waters off Alaska. That is in our back yard. I don’t take the ‘Monroe Doctrine’ view, that Central and South America are our colonial property. In fact, I hope someday to visit your beautiful countries. Peace.
The Most Holy Theotokos appeared to hundreds of thousands at Zeitun, Egypt back in 1968.
The Most Holy Theotokos appeared to three children in Fatima, Portugal in 1917 A.D. and, as a sign of the Authenticity of her Message had a ‘Miracle of the Sun’ performed for those same 70,000.
The very first recorded apparition of the Mother of God occured to St. James the Apostle in Zaragoza, Spain back in 40 A.D.
The Mother of God gave birth to her Son Who just so happens to be the Eternal Son of God the Father. She conceived this Child by the Power of the Holy Spirit.
Her Son chose and send His Apostles to ALL NATIONS of the earth to preach and teach the Gospel, the Good News. The Twelve Apostles were NOT..and I repeat emphatically..were NOT sent to Moscow or to RUSSIA alone!
The issue of the Filioque Phrase has long been SETTLED by theologians and by Bishops both of the CATHOLIC Church and the ORTHODOX Church!
The Most Holy Theotokos is God’s Own NEW EVE of and for the entire Human Race! And as the New Eve and Spiritual Mother of the Human Race, she is most certainly entitled to be vitally and personally concerned with the Eternal Salvation of peoples on EVERY LAST CONTINENT of EVERY LAST NATION here on earth…
…whether or not Bishops and/or their Clergy from ANY particular national church here on earth likes that or not!
I, for one, will do whatever little I can in order TO HELP the Blessed Virgin Mary’s spiritual victory of her IMMACULATE HEART over the God’s enemies, the Church’s enemies and Mankind’s enemies.
And as an ordained Priest yourself, make up your mind! Are you are are you NOT for the Mother of God in this titanic and global spiritual combat for the Eternal Salvation of souls!
If the Most Holy Theotokos WANTS a public and solemn Collegial Consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart, why on earth do the people and Clergy of the RUSSIAN CHURCH want to DENY the Mother of God’s own Request?
If the Mother of God requested a public and solemn Collegial Consecration of ENGLAND to her Immaculate Heart, why would any Anglican or Episcopal or Baptist or Congregational church howl and spit and hiss at having such a public Consecration for their sakes done?
For the sake of the readership here, please explain to them all what are the theological HERESIES of the Catholic Church!
Did or did not Christ Jesus have a real, true and fleshy human HEART that was speared through by a lance? And was not Christ Jesus God Incarnate? And are not Things entirely of a Divine Nature SACRED?
Did or did not the Mother of God receive the Divine Greeting from the Archangel Gabriel that she was FULL OF DIVINE GRACE?
Does or does not DIVINE GRACE purify and sanctify a person’s soul? And if you are found to be FULL OF DIVINE GRACE, aren’t you then ‘Immaculate’?
And did not the Mother of God have a honest to goodness human HEART?
So please DO EXPLAIN to readers here how and why your particular nationalistic theology is far, far superior to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Faith!

Dear Fr Joseph -
You know I love you & appreciate you and affirm OUR site’s OPEN forum.
BUT: The Filoque Issue has NOT been resolved. +BN
I will be on the Michael Collins Piper Radio Show this Thursday, 12/4/08 at 9PM EST @ http://mikepiperreport.com/
I hope you all can tune in! +BN
Thanks a lot for the link! Interesting and informative. Yes, I also heard something about the reconstruction of Russian agricultural sector and know that Russia is a very rich country. God has given them almost everything, huge natural resources, rich land or so called “black earth”, lumber, big rivers and lakes with a lot of fish and so on. It is pure shame for such country to import food. But sometimes imported goods are cheaper than if you produce them. . I for example, read that Russia imports beef from Brazil or Chile and pays only 7 - 10 cents per kilogram.
Also, they had a tradition of having their own small farms to produce their own food. The government gave, to almost all Russians, a piece of land for free and they planted there all kind of vegetables, trees, etc. People liked the activity of working at their (dacha), cottage and the government liked the idea that it should not break his head with developing agriculture…. at least my opinion.
But now with Putin and Medvedev, I think, things are going to move to a different direction.
I agree that:
“Putin is not without controversies”. We all know that only GOD is without controversies. But at the same time he has all good qualities to be the leader of our world. I can not find anybody more suitable for that “position”. I have been following Putin for the last 8-9 years and he has never disappointed me. Of course, we will see what the future holds for us… We live in interesting and important times.
Thursday is going to be a very busy and exiting day. First, our brother Putin will have his talk and later on our Brother here!!!
Good luck to both of them and looking forward to listening to their talks!!! GOD bless them!!!
Lots of Love,
You work long and hard at doing your research for your RJN readers and I’m quite sure it burdens you to see so many people treat your research as not worth acting upon. There has been and is much research done on ‘Filioque’ which should not be so readily dismissed yet is treated as not worth acting upon by the Orthodox and Catholics.
“Today many Eastern Orthodox Bishops are putting aside old prejudices and again acknowledging that there need be NO SEPERATION between the two communions on this Issue. Eastern Orthodox Bishop Kallistos Ware who once adamantely opposed the ‘filioque’ doctrine states: ‘The filioque controversy which has seperated us for so many centuries is more that a mere technicality, but it is not insoluble. Qualifying the firm position taken when I wrote (my book) ‘The Orthodox Church’ twenty years ago, I now believe, AFTER FURTHER STUDY, that the problem is more in the area of semantics and different emphasis than in any basic doctrinal differences.’” - quoting from
Br. Nathanael, if it takes FURTHER STUDY on the part of Bishop from the Eastern Orthodox Church to come to that conclusion of his, then Fr. John and every last member of the Orthodox Church’s Religious and Laity NEED ‘FURTHER STUDY’ themselves as well!
For EVERYONE’S further study:

Lots of Love,
The absolutely indispensible Doctrine/Dogma of the Chrisitan Church is that there IS a God - and that this God of ours BECAME A MAN - and walked on this same planet earth you and I and every last person who has lived and is currently is living.
In order to take on our human nature (which is to say ‘theologically’ speaking a race of created incarnate spirits, spirits fused to and with a tangible physical body), the Christian GOD had to have His Eternal Divine Spirit fused to a human body.
And to have a human body, one needs the active consent and co-operation of a WOMAN!
That video of the Eucharistic Miracle and the article of a scientific examination of the Eucharistic Miracle of Lanciano, Italy in the 8th century, (2 full centuries before Photius’ instigating the East/West Schism of His Church) show a HUMAN HEART both beating and bleeding.
That Eucharistic (SACRED) Heart of our Lord and Savior Jesus, the Christ - and as you say in the Orthodox Church’s Liturgies, “Christ OUR God” - was conceived and formed in THE WOMB of his Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Most Holy Theotokos as you of the Eastern Church properly and doctrinally correct entitled her to be - by the Divine Life-Giving and Sustaining Power of God the Holy Spirit.
God took on OUR human nature. The Eternal Divine Spirit of the 2nd Person of the Blessed Trinity was FUSED to a human body - the Word of God became FLESH and dwelt among us created human incarante spirits, and He became a Fully Fledged Member of OUR Human Race!
That Beating SACRED Heart of our Lord and Savior Jesus, The Christ, received the BLOOD from His mother which HER heart pumped to Him, giving Him the water, the food and the air He needed while in her womb so as to take on our human nature in His physical HUMAN body.
While in His Mother’s Womb, His SACRED Heart beat while being just inches away from HER heart.
Does not Holiness consist in the degree of one’s Close Proximity to God? That the closer and closer one comes to God, the greater and greater one’s HOLINESS actually and truly becomes?
To have GOD Himself within you but a scant few insignificant inches away from YOUR heart…cannot you not prayerfully consider the Mother of God as having an IMMACULATE HEART?
In your next homily to your parishioners, perhaps explain to them all that they really and truly OUGHT TO ADOPT the mindset and thoughts of their Spiritual Mother AFTER they have received from your Priestly hands our Eucharistic Lord, that is to say, His Body and His Blood in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church’s Sacrament of THE EUCHARIST.

Enough of your heretical smarmy Filioquist Heresy. Enough. I left that apostate, whoring, power-mad communion over twenty-five years ago, and only recently have seen what I knew to be true, come to pass: in the clergy sex scandals, the publication of the book, ‘Goodbye, Good men’ and the syncretistic actions of both J2P2, as well as “Benedict Arnold.”
You quote all sorts of ecumenist claptrap, and expect that to SOLVE an issue? IF Timothy Ware is now even MORE ecumenist than he was ten years ago (which was a stretch from what he was, ten years before that) then he NEVER TRULY CONVERTED TO ORTHODOXY. He’s still a liberal Anglican in Byzantine robes!
Have you read -http://dialectic.wordpress.com/
NO, probably not.
Have you read -http://dialectic.wordpress.com/category/articles/
NO, probably not
I tend to avoid conflict after a second or third exchange, as others have clearly shown the fallacy of arguing with a heretic - http://dialectic.wordpress.com/2007/11/25/orthodox-flames/
Please, do NOT post your romanist claptrap here anymore. The honor of the Theotokos does not need your personal attention on this blog. Her Son can handle the attacks on Her person, (and usually does, being Very God of Very God, you understand…)
To quote Dr. Farrell’s brilliant rephrasing of an Anglican formulary: “The filioque is the outward, efficacious, and visible symbol of an inward and metaphysical depravity.” - Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
One more quote, that seems fitting.
“These men [Romanists] have said all the rash impudence there is to say… “- Patriarch St. Photius the Great (Mystagogy of the Holy Spirit)
Fr John, your comment to Fr Joseph is ad hominem and off the dial. Way off the dial.
As you know, Brother Nathanael has banned shall we say the ‘f - word’. Fr Joseph is not arguing for it against Brother Nathanael’s request.
If you will read Fr Joseph’s comment instead of reacting and tirading, you will discover that he is talking about the Incarnation of our Lord as in “he took flesh and dwelt among us”. Why should this timely Advent comment not be welcomed by everyone?
It is you who are persisting with the ad hominems trying to provoke the Roman Catholics to turn this forum into a debate with you on ‘that subject’.
And why should you take such offense if Fr Joseph writes with love and appreciation to Brother Nathanael’s Orthodox readers of Panaghia - the All Holy Mother of God.
Well if she is All Holy, Fr John, then why are you taking such umbrage at the Catholic reference to her Immaculate Heart? The Heart you are referring to in your tirade magnifies our Lord above all - above all creation, above all angels, even the Seraphim.
At this time of most perilous danger for all souls, saints of the Catholic Church have said we would find sancturary in her Immaculate Heart from the foes of Holy Church.
All right, you don’t agree with that. So what.
This website is pushing the envelope in spiritual warfare with the Serpent and his legions of the Lie. This is the battle of the Woman vs the Serpent. The sanctuary of the Immaculate Heart of Mary concerns the matters discussed here closely.
As for sex scandals among the clergy, this is a most disgusting red herring. Bella Dodd, former Communist Party Honcho testified before the House of UnAmerican Activities Committee that the Communist Party in America sent 1100 members into the Catholic Priesthood to destroy the Church. Obviously they are doing an excellent job. And this goes without saying that they sent members into the Church in every country - as the Communist Party is an international organisation.
This is a cross for us and a sign for you. I am sure the Masons and Communists did not consider the Orthodox Patriarchates ‘off limits’.
My Jesus, this is for the love of you; for the suffering Holy Father; for the conversion of poor sinners and for sins against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
I liked the Putin article very much. Has Putin had a conversion experience or change of philosophy since his days in the old Soviet Union and the KGB?
@Query about Putin
When Putin joined the KGB he did so as national duty to serve his country.
He commented that he read the Marxist works we he joined but did not appeal to him.
So he joined the KGB it wasn’t because he was a Communist ideologue but as an idea of serving ones country. He was never a Marxist ideologue
In Marx’s manifesto it calls for a progressive tax system based on earnings like we have in US and UK yet Putin introduced a flat rate tax system, abolished communist era holidays replacing them with national ones and replaced Soviet era benefits with cash pay outs.
Plus the fact the Russian state openly finances and promotes Christianity.
Bush never does this he lights Menorahs in the Whitehouse yet no Christian symbols are permitted and host Chabab-Lubravitch prayer meetings there.
His Neocon administration are former Trotskyite communists and during the terror suspect secret prison rendition scandal were using the former prisons the Soviets used.
When he was in the KGB he was a colonel in East Germany gathering data about West German Economy an economic data analysis version of Ray McGovern.
He didn’t run the Stasi or any military intelligence aspect of the KGB like former defectors who are linked with UK and US think tanks.
If your wondering why he has fellow KGB associates in his cabinet it is because the “liberal” opposition are George Soros trained economist and Harvard cronnies who raped the country of billions of dollars and sold it to western affiliated oligarchs.
When Putin came to power two criminal mafia oligarchs Berezovsky and Guisinky controlled the media and controlled large sections of Russian natural resource and industry.
Through this power they were able to elect representatives to the Duma and pass laws and regional laws to suit there agenda.
They essential were running the country and as they had a monopoly on the wealth of the nation it would be impossible to secure enough funding for run for elected office to counter there agenda much like the US today.
All the alternative media, politicians, think tanks, etc are financed by the AEI, NED, US AID and the former oligarchs.
Berezovsky himself finances and runs several anti-Putin websites in France and England.
That’s why you won’t here any good news about Putin or Russia
Or how bad the oligarchs rule in Russia was.
Matthew Raphael Johnson, does a pretty good overview of Putin
There’s also a lot of black propaganda about Putin on the net so with out clear reference and knowing the source of information and there affiliations I would take it with a grain of salt.
Most quotes associated to Russian leaders are usually misquotes or taken out of context or just plain lies like the USSR disaster quote at a CIS security summit.
Russia’s Putin creates anti-crisis body
MOSCOW – Prime Minister Vladimir Putin announced plans Wednesday to set up a new anti-crisis body and put one of his top deputies in charge, as Russia battles with its worst financial crisis in 10 years, Russian news agencies reported.
First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov will head the new agency, which will be tasked with developing a coordinated approach to economic and social problems as Russia’s economy heads into a severe downturn on the back of plunging oil prices and falling investor confidence.
“I believe it’s critical to pool our efforts, so that we have a single center from which we can jointly target problems in the social sphere and those that arise in the economy in connection with the global financial crisis,” Putin was quoted as saying by state-run news agency RIA-Novosti. “We mustn’t separate these problems,” he added.
Falling demand for metals and construction materials has led to widespread production cuts and mass job losses, and the state has swooped in to shore up Russia’s banking system and bail out indebted companies. It has also spent tens of billions of dollars defending the national currency.
During a live phone-in with Putin last week, viewers’ questions centered on issues such as wage arrears, unemployment and social benefits — a markedly different tone from previous years.
The new appointment will likely put Shuvalov, a former Kremlin chief economic aide, on the front line of Russia’s response to growing economic concerns and social discontent.
Lots of Love,

The revival of Russian Orthodox church is mainly due to the people. It is a true miracle.
All I want is our great Church to be alive, it has been through almost all hardships imaginable and will stand strong, I pray.
Br Nathanael your biography is so interesting, I’m so happy you found Russian Orthodox as your home! My prayers go to you!
