Things are really bad in the U.S. when a Russian president is looked upon more favorably that an American president. Too bad Liberals don’t measure by such optics, or Obama’s numbers would be lower then Bush’s when he left office.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has been humiliating Barack Obama for years. Putin has flown Russian bombers off of our coast, annexed Crimea, meddled in Ukraine and has now taken over the fight against ISIS, and simultaneously propping up Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Obama has been saying, “Assad must go” since 2011. Tough words, backed up by no action.
The truth is Obama doesn’t have the slightest clue what to do. Obama cried foul when Putin started bombing Syrian opposition. Most Americans think Obama is doing a bad job in Syria, at least according to a Huffington Post article on September 27:
“A CBS/New York Times poll released Wednesday revealed just 37 percent approved of his handling of the Syrian crisis. His overall approval ratings on foreign policy, formerly a political strength for him, have dropped significantly as well in recent months.”
The mainstream media (MSM) has done everything it can to portray Obama as a strong, great president. They’ve echoed Obama’s opinion that Putin is acting out of weakness, and will ultimately fail. It’s nothing short of a government sponsored disinformation campaign. Putin openly shows his lack of respect and contempt for Obama, practically daring Obama to act.
Or is he doing this?
What a lot of people don’t know about Putin is that he is a Christian. In a January 2012 meeting with the Russian Orthodox Church, he promised that he will protect Christians from the slaughter and repression they suffer in the Middle East, this according to an article by Cheri Berens:
“Just a few years after that meeting, the Russian Orthodox Church, which has reclaimed its traditional role in Russia (thanks to Putin), described Russia’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a ‘holy war’.
Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Russian Orthodox Church’s Public Affairs Department said: ‘The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches.’”
Most of us have seen the shirtless pictures of Putin; on a horse, hunting, fishing or just walking along a stream. What’s unnoticed is he’s wearing a gold chain with his baptismal cross, proudly displayed for everyone to see. Putin is actually a born-again Christian, having made that transition in the late 1990’s. It is said to play an important part of his political career as Prime Minister and President.
In Russia, Putin has been outspoken critic of the moral decay of American society. He has vowed to protect Russia from the “anti-Christian Liberalism that which has destroyed American society.”
“In a 2014 speech at Valdai Club, Putin said: ‘Another serious challenge to Russia’s identity is linked to events taking place in the world. Here there are both foreign policy and moral aspects. We can see how many of the Euro-Atlantic countries are actually rejecting their roots, including the Christian values that constitute the basis of Western civilization. They are denying moral principles and all traditional identities: national, cultural, religious and even sexual. They are implementing policies that equate large families with same-sex partnerships, belief in God with the belief in Satan. The excesses of political correctness have reached the point where people are seriously talking about registering political parties whose aim is to promote pedophilia. People in many European countries are embarrassed or afraid to talk about their religious affiliations. Holidays are abolished or even called something different; their essence is hidden away, as is their moral foundation. And people are aggressively trying to export this model all over the world. I am convinced that this opens a direct path to degradation and primitivism, resulting in a profound demographic and moral crisis.’”
It’s no wonder that the MSM would never allow this information to be known by the American public.
Conservative Christian Americans are angry at Obama, who they believe does nothing to protect their faith. Putin has already made Obama look like a meek, pitiful soul on the world stage. By showing he is actually willing to fight Islamists who murder and massacre Christians by the thousands, Putin would prove Obama cares more about protecting Muslims than Christians.
Putin is not the second coming of the Messiah, let’s keep it real. Nevertheless, Putin has taken the bold step to protect Christians in a way that Obama never has and never will.
