Saudi Arabia's Threat to Europe:** Saudi Arabia, under the leadership of Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, has made a significant announcement in favor of Russia. They have warned NATO that if the $300 billion confiscated from Russia is spent, Saudi Arabia will sell off their European bonds to collapse European economies. This development shows Saudi Arabia's alignment with Russia over the US.

Vladimir Putin Puts West on Notice

Before delving into today’s momentous events, I want to announce that I have set up a new YouTube channel — Counter Currents — where I will do interviews with key people. I am hoping my first one will be with former CIA Officer Robert Baer. I will have two separate platforms. My current one is dedicated to my personal rants and commentary. Counter Currents will be me interviewing others. Here is the intro video, please subscribe.

Now, on with the news.

Vladimir Putin’s speech today (Friday) at the Russian Foreign Ministry is a clear warning to the West and signals that Russia is going to shift its military operation in Ukraine into a higher, more powerful gear. American and her NATO allies are fools if they dismiss or ignore Putin’s stark message today:

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Friday that the “selfishness and hypocrisy of Western countries” had led to a “dangerous turn of events” and the world was “close to the point of no return.”. . . .

“Calls to inflict a strategic defeat on Russia, which has the largest arsenal of nuclear weapons, demonstrates the extreme adventurism of Western politicians. They either do not understand the scale of the threat they themselves create, or they are simply obsessed with the belief in their own impunity and their own exclusivity. Both can turn into a tragedy.”

He stated that the West had committed “theft” of Russian assets, and threatened punishment as a result.

He said, “Despite all the chicanery, theft will certainly remain theft." And it will not go unpunished.”

Putin also claimed to officials that the “Western model” of global security is collapsing. He said that this “needs to be essentially created anew.” He said that he is open to talks with everyone, including NATO.

Putin went on to elaborate Russia’s conditions for a negotiated settlement in Ukraine:

Putin stated that Russia would be ready to enter talks as soon as “tomorrow” to negotiate an end to conflict in Ukraine, provided that Ukrainian troops are withdrawn from several key regions. He also demanded that Ukraine give up all plans to join NATO, saying that the “moral responsibility for the continuation of bloodshed” would be in the West if the proposal was rejected.

Putin said: “I want to emphasize, it must be from the entire territory of these regions within their administrative borders as they existed at the time of their incorporation into Ukraine.

“As soon as Kyiv says they’re ready for such a decision and start the real withdrawal of forces from these regions and officially declare rejection of plans to join NATO, from our side, immediately, literally the same minute, will come an order to stop the fire and start negotiations.

I will make this simple — the West and Ukraine better damn well take Putin seriously. He means exactly what he said. In contrast with what Russia proposed to accept as a result of its negotiations with the Ukrainians in March 22, Russia no longer is willing to surrender Donetsk and Luhansk to President Zelensky. The ship has sailed. Instead, Russia is laying stake to Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporyzhzhia as permanent members of the Russian Federation.

Just imagine how things would look today for Ukraine if it had abided by Minsk 2 or had accepted the terms negotiated in March 22 — Ukraine would still be intact and at least 400,000 Ukrainian soldiers, who were KIA, would still be alive.

Notice what Putin did not say? He left Odessa off of his list of demands. This is Ukraine’s last chance to retain control of Odessa. If Ukraine continues to reject Putin’s latest offer for negotiations, then Odessa will be the next non-negotiable item on Putin’s list. Ray McGovern and I discussed these issues today with Judge Nap.

CRITICAL ALERT! Iran & Putin Tell Israel and US to BACK DOWN~UN Warns US Not To protect Israel

Colonel Tony Shaffer - I want to read a quote from General Wesley Clark about Iran and Israel. He said, “Israel is not going to trust the United States if Iran strikes." It can’t, because look at what’s happening in Gaza right now with the pressure between the United States and Israel.” And “Iran has to feel like they’re kind of winning right now. They’ve got the United States and Israel at odds, Hamas has survived, you’ve got the whole world down on the Israelis for what’s gone on in Gaza. This was part of the plan.” There is a lot to unpack. First, is this part of a greater plan to create a regional war in the Middle East again? Israel is losing the PR war. General Clark said Hamas walked them into this trap. Today I’m reading Biden called for a meeting with the G7 leaders. However, the UN is demanding a ceasefire in Gaza and for the US to bow out and stop helping Israel. Why is Biden having such a hard time deciding whom to support? It feels as though he’s trying to support and fund both sides of the war. Biden says US support for Israel is Ironclad now after the attack he says he won’t support a retalitation of Israel on Iran. Will this escalate further or did Iran just need to display a show of force? President Putin is telling the US to stay out and seek peace. He’s also said Russia will back Iran if the United States attacks Iran in Israel’s defense. Thoughts? I’m told Biden and the Pentagon have held private meetings that the US is being set up to be drawn into a war. Will they avoid it or still fall into this trap? What do you think Israel’s next move will be? What do you think Iran’s next move will be and what will the US next move be?

Could Vladimir Putin Be As Clueless As Joe Biden?

Ever since Russia invaded Ukraine, the Western intelligentsia has been busy portraying Vladimir Putin as a man who, unlike, say Lyin’ Joe Biden or Rachel Levine or your local drag queen, has transgressed all the bounds of decency. He’s an authoritarian. He’s an imperialist. He’s an autocrat. He’s a new Hitler. 

But while the media and numerous government officials have not hesitated to portray Putin as an evil incarnate, one would be hard-pressed to find anyone claiming that he is stupid. Few people, if anyone, doubt that he is as shrewd as he is ruthless, as thoughtful as he is menacing. Putin himself, however, has just put a massive dent in his fearsome reputation with his response to the ISIS attack in Russia.

When the Islamic State (ISIS) claimed responsibility for Friday’s jihad terror attack in Moscow, in which the death toll is currently 139, its claim was met with widespread skepticism. ISIS issued a statement boasting that “the Islamic State dealt a strong blow to Russia with a bloody attack, the most violent targeting it in years.” It added that “security sources told Amaq Agency that a coordinated attack was launched by Islamic State fighters, on Friday, on a large crowd of Christians in the city of Krasnogorsk on the outskirts of the capital, Moscow.” Amaq Agency is ISIS’ mouthpiece for its announcements of various jihad activities.  

Despite this, however, the usual suspects of conspiracy paranoia, notably the CIA and Mossad, were accused on social media of being the real culprits. And Putin himself, in his initial statement on the attack, blamed the massacre on “international terrorism” but didn’t mention ISIS and suggested that Ukraine had something to do with it: “They tried to hide and move towards Ukraine, where, according to preliminary data, a window was prepared for them on the Ukrainian side to cross the state border."

On Monday, however, Putin issued another statement, in which he acknowledged the truth he had skirted previously: “We know that the crime was committed by radical Islamists, whose ideology the Islamic world itself has been fighting for centuries.” Really, Vlad? Where? 

As "The History of Jihad" demonstrates, one constant amid 1,400 years of jihad warfare around the world was that there was never any pushback from within the Islamic world. In all of the centuries of jihad warfare and bloody jihad conquests, there was never an Islamic group dedicated to fighting against “radical Islamists” and showing that Islam is a religion of peace. There were never even any protests until a handful of Muslims began standing against jihad terrorism in the modern West.

Putin wasn’t finished. He asked, “And how do radical Islamists, who position themselves, by the way, as devout Muslims, professing so-called pure Islam, commit serious atrocities and crimes during the holy month of Ramadan for all Muslims?” Well, Mr. Putin, it’s like this: Ramadan is the month in which Muslims are supposed to redouble their efforts to please Allah. A hadith has a Muslim asking Muhammad: “Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward).” Muhammad replied, “I do not find such a deed.” (Bukhari 4.52.44) So if there is no greater deed than jihad, and Ramadan is the month to do great deeds for Allah, the month of jihad.

Many Muslim authorities have said as much. In April 2022, the Palestinian Authority’s Supreme Sharia Judge, Mahmoud Al-Habbash, declared that “Ramadan is not a month of laziness but rather a month of activity, of effort, and of hard work, and as it also was in the life of the Prophet, a month of jihad, conquest, and victory.” The jihad he had in mind was violence against unbelievers, as a Muslim cleric in India, Maulana Bashir Ahmad Khaki, made clear in 2018: “Ramadan is the pious month of ‘Jihad-o-Qital’ (Jihad and killing). Those who attain martyrdom while waging Jihad, doors of heaven remain open.” In 2012, a jihad group in Bulgaria explained that “Ramadan is a month of holy war and death for Allah. It is a month for fighting the enemies of Allah and God’s messenger, the Jews and their American facilitators.”

So is Vladimir Putin retreating into Bidenesque, FBI-style denial and willful ignorance regarding the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat? It certainly seems as if he is. After all, he has restive Muslim populations in Chechnya and elsewhere in Russia, and he doesn’t want them to get the idea that their ruler is an “Islamophobe.” And as Russia continues to cultivate relationships with the Islamic Republic of Iran and other Islamic entities, it would be poor business sense to risk saying something that might ruffle the ever-so-easily ruffled feathers of the motherland’s partners.

That means that just as in the West, Russia’s most respected foreign policy analysts will continue to look everywhere except in Islam for the motivating ideology behind the massacre in Moscow and so many others. The jihadis, meanwhile, will keep plotting more bloodshed and murder.

Tucker Carlson Takes On Critics of His Interview with Putin | The Glenn Beck Podcast

Tucker Carlson just did something that no other Western journalist in the world has been either willing or able to do in a very long time. He traveled to Moscow to speak to Russian President Vladimir Putin. And right on cue, the media accused him of being a Putin lover, critics advocated for banning him from returning home, and the EU even debated sanctioning him. Suddenly, journalism became a crime in the eyes of other journalists. So Glenn sits down with Tucker to do what his critics have refused to do: get his side of the story. Why did he go to Russia? What did take away from his interview? How did he feel sitting across from a man who could have killed him? In his first U.S. interview since returning from Russia, Tucker tells the shocking story of his second attempt to land this interview and why he believes the NSA tried to stop it yet again, as well as the disturbing story of when he asked former U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson for a similar interview. Tucker further explains why he believes NATO is “an offense against our sovereignty” and where he stands on the war in Ukraine. Glenn also asked Tucker to respond to criticism from his own side: Why did he praise Moscow’s subway system and grocery stores? Is he advocating for an authoritarian leader in America? Does he still believe returning to the Constitution is America's only hope? "It's not like you have to be a fascist to have an orderly society," Tucker tells Glenn. "We HAD one." Tucker also addressed the reactions to his recent podcast with former State Department official Mike Benz.

Five key moments from Tucker Carlson’s interview with Putin: Elon Musk is unstoppable

Vladimir Putin began his much-anticipated interview on Thursday night by offering a more than 30-minute, counterfactual history lesson to the bemused Tucker Carlson. The former Fox New host’s interjections (how is this relevant, Mr. President?) were swiftly shot down by the Russian leader: “Are we going to have a serious talk or a show?” Putin’s show, it seemed. Beyond the foray into the Russian president’s version of history, here are the five key and most surprising moments of the more than two-hour sit-down.
