New York Times: Putin May Be CIA Agent

Donate

On April 3, The New York Times published the article of Thomas Friedman, posing his ridiculous question “Is Putin a CIA agent?”, before unloading on the Russian president unfounded allegations, personal grievances, and impotent rage.

“Putin has undertaken so many actions in recent years that contributed to the weakening of Russia’s economy and human capital base that you have to wonder whether he’s secretly on the C.I.A.’s payroll” , Friedman wrote.

According to Friedman, the rebuilding of Russia by nurturing human talent and strengthening the rule of law was too hard for Putin. By contrast, he decided to look for dignity for Russia, by developing oil industry and strengthening the Russian military.

Friedman blamed Putin’s authority among Russian citizens, saying “Putin consistently acts like a farmer who sells his most valuable beef in return for cubes of sugar. That is, he looks for short-term sugar highs to boost his popularity with his Russian nationalist base because he is insecure, and pays for it by giving up real beef, leaving Russia weaker in the long term”.

Presenting the boldly speculations without any evidences, he brought up the crazy idea that “in 2014 Putin seized Crimea and invaded Eastern Ukraine with disguised Russian troops” to slow Russia’s growth by imposed sanctions.

Friedman described Russia’s “intervention” in Syria as “another short-term sugar high for his base.”

“Putin sent advisers, Russian Air Force jets, special operations teams and surface-to-air missile batteries to Syria to prevent the toppling of Russia’s Cold War ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad”.

The newspaper also blamed Russia in all “dead sins”: the “Novichok” production, poisoning of the Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the UK, the creation of the cyberagent Guccifer 2.0, which hacked the National Committee of the Democratic Party in 2016.

Concluding, Friedman supposed that Putin did so many “foolish” actions to undermine and make weak Russian economics and its citizens.

What is Friedman target? He blames Russia and indeed Vladimir Putin. Obviously, Friedman wants to be bad as he regularly uses his column to blast US President Donald Trump or whoever else contracts his brand of New York Neoliberalism.

    Does Thomas Friedman knowingly act on behalf of the Military-Industrial Complex, or is he simply a “useful idiot”?

    We’ve crossed into the Twilight Zone. The NYT might as well claim that Putin is a Klingon.

    • as

      Five stage of grief.
      He’s stuck on denial however. No way he’s ever face the reality of things.

    • MikeH

      I want to ask Thomas if Putin is a CIA agent and Trump is Putin’s puppet that means that the CIA controls Trump, correct?

      What a loon.

      • TrumanSparks

        He’s not a loon. He’s a smart guy who writes exactly what the people who sign his paychecks and provide him with his high standard of living want him to write. He’s not a loon, he’s a good capitalist.

        He doesn’t actually believe anything he writes. He’ll write that the moon is made of green cheese if you pay him enough. That’s all Thomas Friedman will ever care about.

        • EarthPerson

          He cares much for his thirty pieces of silver

    • You can call me Al

      Absolutely, brilliant comment and one I can relate to very well.

    • Putin is a Klingon. That’s why I have time traveled back to 2018 to effect his arrest! :D

  • Tudor Miron

    Lets see how all those zio trolls (starlight and likes) are jumping all over this. Regarding that pathetic article – so it is CIA meddling with Trump elections?

    • Ronald

      You sort of have it there. The Skripal affair is useful towards the cold war build up, but the fact that Facebook is a CIA creation, and the fact that it was caught “harvesting” 50 million Americans personal data is the real reason for the cover-up.

  • Zainab Ali

    zio satanic terrorists are totally being eliminated slowly but surely worldwide – thus comes more lies/deceits/madness

  • Sestra Lily Yankovski

    South Point is much more likely of being CIA AGENT as are their Syria news sources.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Your comment is more worthy of South Park Sestra.

    jews hate Christians most Christians never read the Talmud if they did they would chase them all down line them up & ship them back to the caves they came from…. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5cac3026cf8d021d747b0758a2843368dbca9ccc3e3adc050dd5d278c85812ce.jpg

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      If they send them back to the caves they come back again, Better a more permanent location as the graves are. This way you know where they are at all times.

    • as

      They did ship them into Palestine. If you forgotten the Europe and USA shipping the jews into the Palestine because they don’t welcome them as immigrants in their territory.

  • Nosferatu

    US propaganda (voiced by Friedman) is geting more stupid than ever. Did they forget how was Russian economy when US (Yeltsin) ruled in Moscow?

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      Of course not, but stupid is always stupid, no matter what they say. And the worst kind of stupid is the one who gets paid, to act as an intelligent individual.

    “Putin has undertaken so many actions in recent years that contributed to
    the weakening of Russia’s economy and human capital base”

    excellent words!!!

    this is my opinion, too.

      I’ll fix that :

      the weakening of Russia’s economy and human capital base”

      Huh, good question… I don’t even know what Jew means. It isn’t a race, it isn’t a religion, it isn’t a nationality, it for damn sure isn’t God’s people. It is I guess is an agenda. It is served by a group of people best described as predatory parasites. They only believe in money, that is their god. They only have loyalty to each other if it doesn’t cause them personal pain. They are the most self absorbed “people” the world has ever seen in an individual sense.

    Just put some hair on putin’s head. He would look like Sephiroth from FF7

  • John

    It’s the NYT, what does anybody expect?

  • Bob

    There is a pattern here – numerous ethnic Ashkenazi Jewish commentators employed in the US MSM from Max Boot to Rachel Maddow to Thomas Freidman really, really, hate Putin. There are a few ethnic historical reasons, but primarily it’s because Putin has neutralized the Neo-Con plans, to destroy and redraw the boundaries of Syria, Lebanon and Iran, based around the radical prioritization of Israeli interests and security. The anti-Putin fervor, and hysteria, of these particular media commentators is essentially coming from a tribal mindset and fury over this issue, but this real motivation is never openly or honestly acknowledged in broader US public forum.
    Neo-Cons think of changing the middle eastern map in ancient destructive terms – like Rome versus Carthage. Rome saw Carthage as a competitor to full domination of the Mediterranean Sea, so entered into prolonged series of zero-sum wars to destroy them. Utterly, slaying their population, razing their cities and actually salting the very earth of these sites.

  • Rodger

    I don’t know what Putin did to trigger this guy but I hope he does lots more of it.
    Anyway if the CIA had people like Putin the US position in the ME wouldn’t suck so hard even after spending $10 trillion there in the last 15 years.

    the jews still cannot move on the failure of the regime change

    It is well known in certain circles that Friedman has been a magic mushroom addict for many years now. This could explain his hallucinatory writings. There has been solid evidence provided that when he is not on mushrooms, he is quite a reasonable, logical journalist and seems to be at least temporarily in touch with some form of actual reality . .

    • Kolo

      Is that when he becomes a faggot?

  • Yui2

    Hahahaha what an idiot. Expanding a nation’s territory is leads to difficult short-term situation due to diplomatic sanctions and similar, yet long-term gain due to taxing the new citizens and industries in the captured land. Complete opposite of what this moron is saying. Nobody will care about Russia annexing Crimea in 100 years, yet the taxes from Crimea will still go to Russian national treasury

    • FlorianGeyer

      More importantly the US/NATO fleets were prevented from occupying Crimea as they intended.

  • Rafael

    “Putin has undertaken so many actions in recent years that contributed to the weakening of Russia’s economy and human capital base that you have to wonder whether he’s secretly on the C.I.A.’s payroll”

    That is only a longed ziojewish wet dream.

    The Njew York times really, really, really wishes Putin was a CIA turd, but with their availability to the real njews they know better. Just another fake njews spin.

    Thomas Friedman classic zionist subhuman spreading his venom between the people to gain benefit in the chaos

    • Ariel Cohen

      No, he doesn’t even deserve a name with any word “human” in it . .

  • zman

    Well, that was a rather amazing departure from reality. Only someone from another planet (or the US/Europe) could believe such a compilation of Angus by-product. Hello, here is the most inane collection of lies and mis-info for your humorous pleasure, compliments of the twilight zone. If this manure spreading fool were to believe his craptrap, then a comparison to the state of the US/west would likely cause him to believe the Lil Dictator and the Keystone Kop version of the SS were in control of the west….oh, wait…never mind.

  • Roger Snellman

    So Trump is under investigation for collaborating with the CIA. Would almost rather have him collaborating with Russia just like Obama.

    • You can call me Al

      NO, NO – that is what I thought at first. Read the article again, not Trump, but Putin.

      • Roger Snellman

        More fake news to stir up hatred between Russia and US while insulting Putin at the same time. Everything bad is Russia’s fault. Then they imply it is all really US fault since Putin works for CIA.

        The world knows Putin bows to no one.

  • Cheryl Brandon

    Fortunately for most people, we do not get our information from NY times. 21 st Century i/Uk Column news/The Saker and SF are far more accurate. Putin will die before he works for the CIA.

  • JEinCA

    The only American Jewish voice I pay attention to in regards to Russia is that of Professor Stephen F. Cohen. Beyond that most American Jews in the media (like Friedman) are rabidly anti-Russian and I think that goes back to the time of Tsar Nicholas and then to Soviet Times when Stalin purged the Trotskyites.

    • Ariel Cohen

      They hold grudges and enact revenge(served cold) sometimes centuries after they have been offended. Some have conjectured that their hatred for Germany goes back to how they were treated by Lutheran Germany during the 17th Century . .

  • April 3? Shouldn’t this have been published on April 1?

  • And Xi Jinping.

  • northerntruthseeker .

    This is the most sheer and utter bullshit ever coming out of the Jew York Times in quite some time.

    If anyone seriously believes this crap, then I have a few pyramids to sell to you!

    • Ariel Cohen

      The New York Times is the flagship of the Zionazis. It used to be the International Herald Tribune, but for some reason the Zionazis prefer the NYT now. Like rats that infest a rotten food cupboard, they have their dirty favorite places to gather and excrete their distortions and lies. .

    Tom’s main “intellectual” weapon is the big lie, and his secret mentor is Joseph Goebbels.

    Thomas Friedman was writing “Parody Comedy” and please everyone have a good guffaw over it and get back to the serious and more interesting matters, rather than trivial nonsense.

    Now I know why his name is Friedman..just like his fried brain.!
