Vladimir Putin Steals the Show in TIME 100 Readers’ Poll
Posted by Lada Ray
So, despite all the noise and bashing throughout the West, including Ukraine and Eastern Europe, despite the newly invented boycott designed to make all Russians feel bad – that of the May 9th Great Victory celebrations in Moscow – Putin wins the TIME 100 readers’ poll with no contest. That, with nearly 60% of votes cast inside US, plus another 10% coming from Canada and UK.
What is the conclusion? Very simple: those who create all the vicious noise against Russia are the absolute minority, some with ulterior motives and others, because they are hired shills. And their goal is to first weaken, and subsequently, destroy Russia. Considering that Russia is the ultimate Global Balancer, what they are trying to achieve should be clear. When there is no more Global Balancer, they will be able to do whatever they want with our planet!
P.S. Incidentally, ‘Russia as the ultimate Global Balancer’ and related expressions, are my proprietary terms, which are part of my EARTH SHIFT teaching. Read more about that in Predictions. Another part of the EARTH SHIFT system is an idea I first expressed years ago as a linguist and mystical futurist. It establishes a mystical and esoteric connection between Putin and Rasputin. This connection is both profound and important for the entire planet, although a small portion of it is on the surface in the form of the surname association. But it’s only the tip of the iceberg.
Listening recently to something on YouTube, I noticed that some started using my Putin-Rasputin parallel as the idea of their own. If the person(s) who’ve done that read these words, make sure you always give credit to the rightful author! Regardless, those who try to parrot someone else’s idea can only do so superficially. They won’t be able to explain the profound underpinnings behind such theory as they simply don’t have enough knowledge to do so.
You will be able to read all about this fascinating connection between Putin and Rasputin, as well as other mysterious Russian connections and hidden truths, in THE PUTIN ENIGMA – Earth Shift Special Feature. Once you read my report, you will know exactly why Putin always steals the show.

Vladimir Putin steals the show in TIME 100 reader’s poll

Original article: Vladimir Putin steals the show in TIME 100 reader’s poll — RT News, April 14, 2015
Russian President Vladimir Putin (RIA Novosti/Alexei Druzhinin)
In a diverse field of competitors made up of pop stars, technology gurus, visionaries and politicians – and at a time when US-Russia relations have hit rock bottom – President Putin has emerged victorious in Time magazine’s 2015 reader poll.
Among the 100 most influential people in the world, as hand selected by the editors of TIME, the Russian leader proved his rock-star credentials by edging out 24-year-old rapper Lee Chae-rin (better known by her stage name, ‘CL’) of the South Korean girl-group 2NE1 to claim the number-one spot with 6.95 percent of the votes in the final tally.
Putin was the only world leader to rank in the top 10, grabbing the global spotlight from the leading divas of pop music: Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Taylor Swift (2.6 percent, 1.9 percent and 1.8 percent of the votes, respectively). Meanwhile, aside from Putin, the only non-celebrities to appear in the top 10 were the Dalai Lama (1.7 percent), Pakistani female activist Malala Yousafzai (1.6 percent) and Pope Francis (1.5 percent).
President Barack Obama narrowly missed the top 10 with 1.4 percent of the votes, while First Lady Michele Obama attracted 1.2 percent.
Putin’s victory appears all the more incredible when you realize that more than half the votes — 57.38 percent — were cast inside the United States, according to TIME (voters representing Canada and the United Kingdom followed with 5.54 percent and 4.55 percent, respectively). The percentage of votes that were cast from Russia has not yet been disclosed.
The Russian leader dominated the charts at a time of unprecedented tensions between Moscow and the West.
US-Russia relations suffered a major setback on November 21, 2013, when then Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovich suspended plans for the implementation of an ‘association agreement’ with the European Union, showing a preference for closer Russian relations. This decision triggered violent Maidan protests in the capital Kiev, which eventually led to Yanukovich being forced to flee the country in February 2014.
Since then, Putin has steered his country through the rocks of major events, including a reunification with the Crimea Peninsula after a March 16 referendum, which saw an overwhelming number of people voting for it, and subsequent imposition of Western sanctions against Russian individuals and companies.
Meanwhile, Putin and the Russian economy seem to be weathering out the storm of Western sanctions, imposed in response to the Crimean referendum, as the ruble has bounced back from record lows against the dollar and the Russian stock market is one of the year’s top performers. At the same time, European leaders are cautiously optimistic that the Minsk-II agreement, hammered out between Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine on February 11, 2015, will keep the peace between pro-Kiev forces and rebels in the east of the country.
While it is doubtful that TIME magazine will argue on behalf of Putin’s handling of the Ukrainian crisis, which many commentators in the West predicted would spell the end of the Russian economy, not to mention its leader, one thing that is indisputable is Putin’s incredible staying power.
In fact, this is not the first time Putin has taken top honors in a TIME-sponsored contest. In 2007, Putin was named ‘Person of the Year.’ The popular American magazine summarized its decision for choosing Putin with the explanation: “With dauntless persistence, a sharp vision of what Russia should become and a sense that he embodied the spirit of Mother Russia, Putin has put his country back on the map. And he intends to redraw it himself.”
But perhaps the world is only now beginning to understand what Russians have understood for many years. In December, Vladimir Putin, 62, was named Russia’s “Man of the Year” for an incredible 15th successive year. His approval rating – hovering in the stratosphere around 88 percent – is something most world leaders can only dream of.
As the TIME poll indicates, Vladimir Putin – love him or loathe him – is in a political class all by himself.
The reader’s poll stopped calculating votes at 11:59 pm EST on April 10. The full list of TIME 100 winners will appear on newsstands on April 16.
