43 Photos Of Vladimir Putin You Need To See

(Walter Hickey)  Russian President Vladimir Putin has been waging a proxy war of sorts with Obama and the West in Syria, and he isn’t backing down.

In fact, his rhetoric has become even more fiery, today saying he would still support Syria materially if the West does decide to intervene.

Let’s not forget his refusal to surrender Snowden to the U.S.

From Judo and Karate extraodinaire, to former KGB operative, Putin has proven he is not the type of man with whom to mess.


First of all, in Russia, don’t try to paint Putin as anything other than manly, metaphorically, or literally. Here we see the painting that Russian law enforcement raided.

    All propaganda. Putin, and the rest of the oligarchs that control russia, have their money tied into the western banks, as do the Chinese. Mike Rivero from “what really happened” is propagandist who spins the issue as solely a western banking scam. Russia is a part of that scam. Do not be fooled.

      • ThePatriotMuckraker

        Maybe. But, there is more going on then what “the alternative media” is spinning. Again, Russian banking is more corrupt then in the west, this is why Russia’s oligarchs have a vested interest in the machinations of western elite. They are in a sense part of the overall scam. If WW3 happens it will be agreed upon ALL countries at the expense of the “common people.” Mike rivero spins this as being russia wanting the “industrial part” of the Ukraine and leave the indebted part to the EU. Bullshit. Again, if putin and Russia’s oligarchs, hve their money tied into western private central banks, who cares what part of the Ukraine they keep, unless some deal was struck at the expense of Ukrainians. History has proven these secret deals to be true.

      these same western banks raped and subjugated HIS people for 70+ years yet he is in bed with the same. logic is not your strongsuit. There is evidence for Russia despising the NWO and those who run it and nothing but fantasy and fear mongering from the crap you are spewing.

      If Russia is part of a scam then the scammer has to be the US, eh?

    • mellyrn

      Hmm — are you a banker, TPM?

      • ThePatriotMuckraker

        No. Are you a Russian agent? I guess russia is a utopia and has no corruption. You never hear about russian corruption in the “alternative media”, OR their ties with western banks. BP oil has just merged with a major russian oil company. See, you know nothing. People are fools and want leaders sold to them

    Putin is a Christian man.

    One more thing about Vladimir Putin, you might not want to play chess with the man. I’m absolutely certain that the Obama would NOT. I like the man and I don’t care what squeamy John Kerry has to say.

    • Eileen Kuch

      Neither do I, Don. Vladimir Putin is a true Christian, and that’s enough for me.

  • fred

    I wonder if we asked him REALLY nicely if he would be our President because
    we sure as H$LL don’t have a real president.

    • Eileen Kuch

      I’d vote for Putin in a flash, if it were at all possible; because, we don’t have any true leaders here. The last real leader this country had was John F. Kennedy, and the Zios got rid of him with a bullet to the head in a flash.

      • fred

        Eileen! are you my long lost sister?? I think we grew up together
        because we see the world the same way :-) :-)

        • Eileen Kuch

          That, Fred, I couldn’t answer. I grew up in Southeastern Pennsylvania, some 20 miles south of Philadelphia. I was in high school when JFK was assassinated; he was my favorite US President.

          • fred

            I’m kidding of course Eileen but we were both brought up
            in the NE. Me near Boston and I was in middle school
            when JFK was assassinated. And yes he was our last
            “President”. Since, just a long line of carpetbaggers
            and charlatans. This current impostor the worst by far.

          • Eileen Kuch

            Well said, Fred. You wonder why O wanted all of his records sealed? He doesn’t want the public and/or the world know what an impostor he truly is.

            Putin may have been a KGB official in the past (so was Gorbachev); but, after the dissolution of the USSR, he returned to his Orthodox Christian roots; and, among the first things he did when he first took office as President was to lead a procession (in which a large statue of Our Lady of Fatima was carried) through the Kremlin and down the streets of Moscow.

          • fred

            Indeed, he is a statesman and a leader. Nobama is
            just an actor, and not a very good one..

  • Reg

    Putin and Chuck Norris are parodies of each other.

    • hp b

      If I want your opinion I’ll beat it out of you.
      Sincerely,
      Chuck

      • shawnsurfs

        Little known secret…

        Chuck moonlights as Putin when he’s not busy kicking commie butt. CHUCK = PUTIN = CHUCK = PUTIN!!!!!!

        This ain’t no obama-math! I bet if you asked Chuck or Putin what 2+2 is, they’d know the answer b/c it’s definitely not BI!! hahahahaha

        What’s the square root of BI? OBAMA!! Get it?

    As Tecumseh said to Sir Issac Brock before the War of 1812 Detroit battle, “lo, this is a man”.

  • Tony Capalano

    Gotta admit, this guy is cool!

  • Carroll Price

    Too bad America’s not allowed to have a real man like Jesse Ventura as president.

  • eunsuh

    lol….you guys are jackasses. Are you infatuated with him? Do you admire him?

    What is the source of every photo?

    What does that tell you?

    You don’t get it….do you?

    continue on jackasses.

    • Lou

      I would trade our Kenyan jackass for Vlad in a microsecond.

  • Lou

    Who does Russia have for a leader? A man; a patriot; a doer.

    Who does the USSA have for a leader?

    WE DO NOT really know. The unelected in 2012 Kenyan pretender is UNVETTED. One thing is sure he is no American patriot. He is no man but a metrosexual at best. His “wife” is as sexually diffuse as himself.

    God help us our “leaders” certainly will NOT.

    Putin is real – US and all of its president scum are unreal. Get a life ami.

  • disqus_q0fJBDaGHm

    Also he cares for his people by not whoring to the GMO fraud. Their gov’t is not run by dual citizen traitors and he kept the US from entering yet another war in Syria….

  • douglas gray

    By sending Russian troops into key areas of the Crimea, he may well be preventing the sort of chaos and bloodletting that the West unleashed in Syria, when we began to support an El Quaida backed, fundamentalist alliance of rebels some of whom favor torturing and putting Christians to death.
    In this region, racial and ethnic tensions are high; many Russians in the Crimea prefer being part of Russia; the vast majority of Ukranians prefer to be part of an independent Ukraine. If the worst thing that happens is that Russia gains some territory, it is not a really big deal.
    Sure, there will be recriminations and moralizing here in the West, with the pompous McCains and Kerry types strutting about on some sort of moral high horse. But the main goal is avoid, war, civil or military, and prevent the needless loss of life.
    Compare Putin’s response to the West’s failure to act during the Rwanda holocaust. Thus far, his response has been measured.

  • shawnsurfs

    I’d like to see 43 photos of Obummer being manly like Putin… and yes they’d have to be eh-hem… photoshopped like his birth certificate!!!

  • bobjonestwo

    Should have some of Obama’s pics and videos showing him throwing out the first pitch at a ballgame with the expertise of a 4 year old girl and riding a bicycle , not a motorcycle, a bicycle, with a huge safety helmet on while wearing mom jeans. Very manly. Stark difference between one tough s.o.b. and a fraud.
