How do you tell a Communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin. President Ronald Reagan, speech, Sep. 25, 1987
I have one question for those rulers: If communism is the wave of the future, why do you still need walls to keep people in and armies of secret police to keep them quiet? President Ronald Reagan, speech, Jul. 19, 1983

As the treacherous weakling leftists observe the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, stand tall in his fight for his country’s existence, they know he is the new de facto real leader of the world. They have also understood there is only one thing for them to do: character assassination.
At the beginning of this month, a brand new biography, “Putin”, has been published with the purpose of presenting new hypothesis surrounding the Russian President, portraying him as a 'traumatized' man and speculating that “he might be homosexual.”
The author, Moscow “political scientist” Stanislav Belkovsky', claim the rumoured affair between the president and an Olympic gymnast was an invention by the presidential PR team and that he might be 'latently gay.'
Belkovsky, who looks more like a former Russian mafia boss from one of the James Bond films, is the man who has unambiguously declared that, “The [Russian] system must be destroyed, not reformed [and that] an entirely new one must be created.”
In the aftermath of the 2012 presidential elections, Belkovsky was asked about the real percentage of people who support Putin? And the interviewer continues: “According to your estimate, it comes out that almost 30% of the vote is fraudulent. However, the Golos Association reported that only 15% of votes were falsified,”
Belkovsky dismisses it by arguing that “In their calculations, Golos experts did not make adjustments for the immense coercion and pressure employed by the government.” However, he advanced no numbers to sustain his accusations.
He calls Putin a ‘deeply lonely politician’ who prefers animals to people, and adds that the macho photos of him with topless tigers and bears are not staged. ’Therein lies the real Putin,’ argues Belkovsky.
Obviously, Mr. Belkovsky did not get the message that many around the world now prefer the company of loving animal companions to that of twisted human beings one cannot trust.
So-called “political scientist” Belkovsky pretends that Kremlin image-polishers have continually pumped out stories about the President sexual prowess and claims his alleged affair with beautiful former gymnast and Olympic champion Alina Kabaeva was an invention of his PR team.
Propagandist Belkovsky, suddenly advances that: ‘Sex and a sex life to him [President Putin] are alien,’ and he speculates that he may be ‘latently gay.’
His bulldozer, has not spared anyone, and so he takes a peek into the lives of Putin's two daughters, Mariya, 28, and 27-year-old Ekaterina, who he also scrutinizes in his book.
In his hate towards Mr. Putin and what he represents, i.e., the defense of traditional values in the lives of his people and country, Belkovsky can not manipulate a fact shown on a recent survey that has found that since the breakup of the Soviet Union, the populations of 11 of those liberated lands are disappointed about their failure to attain the grand new futures they were supposed to have, but never got.
As a matter of fact, after living under a tight regime in the Soviet Union, democracy has proven to be a challenge to former Soviet countries like Armenia, Belarus, Russia, where people think that the severance brought them more harm than benefits. And, although peoples in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan, said benefits outweighed the harm, Georgians were almost evenly divided.
Recently, Ukraine made known that they needed 10 billion to avoid bankruptcy. Immediately, President Putin extended a 15 billion aid saving them from bankruptcy and from fleeing to the EU, despite insistent opposition.
The world has seen Obama’s star dimming In the aftermath of the Syrian hit on President Obama’s image and self-esteem, as well as other unpresidential decisions the American has made, such as cutting U.S. aid to Egypt in sign of solidarity with the Muslim Brotherhood government of Mohamed Morsi.
Meanwhile, while the witch hunt from the left continues, all the above only serves to show how President Putin’s clout worldwide continues to grow.
