Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Matthew 7:15

Author's Note: As a non-partisan, my inclination was to steer this blog clear of politically charged content. Considering today’s political climate, I now feel that a non-partisan point of view is necessary. As you may know, this blog, my books, and this website is about enabling others to be strong and happy. That does not mean that I will sugar coat reality. Instead, I will reveal what you are dealing with and provide the tools and perspective to stoically overcome it. Just to be clear, my perspective comes from a mindset that is neither Republican nor Democrat. It is my strong belief that political parties are the single greatest threat to our Republic. Only the dissolution of these parties will result in a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

While political parties may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.
George Washington, Farewell Address, September 17, 1796

Following the death of Alexei Navalny, the mainstream media would have you believe he was Vladimir Putin's fiercest opponent. They go on to state that Putin poisoned, imprisoned, and then murdered Navalny. There is, however, overwhelming evidence that none of this is true. In fact, it is more likely that Navalny was an asset of the CIA and MI6. If you think this is a conspiracy theory, then consider this…


Timing of Navalny’s Death

I find it quite telling that Navalny’s death just happened to occur when:

A ninety-five-billion-dollar aid package to Ukraine is being held up in the US House of Representatives. In fact, House Leader Johnson will not even allow it to enter the floor for a vote. Could it be that Navalny was killed to pressure Johnson to bring this bill to the floor?
A week prior to Navalny’s death, via the Carlson interview, Putin exposed that the US and Britain were instrumental in sabotaging a peace treaty that would have ended the war in Ukraine.
Just two days prior to Navalny’s death, he coincidentally had a video call where he appeared healthy on camera.
Navalny's wife, Yulia Navalnaya, just happened to be in the speakers’ box at the International Security Conference in Munich with a scathing speech at the ready and not so much as a tear in her eye.


I think that by now, pretty much everyone knows that the CIA blew up the Nord Stream Pipeline. Would it be so much more of a jump to consider that the CIA, who had far more to gain from Navalny’s death than Putin, killed Navalny? At the very least, it is more likely that Navalny died of sudden death syndrome than at the hands of Putin.

A week after Navalny's death, Kyrylo Budanov, chief of the Main Directorate of Intelligence (HUR) at Ukraine's Ministry of Defense confirmed that Navalny died of natural causes. This supports Russia's initial claim that Navalny died from adult sudden death syndrome resulting from a blood clot while taking a walk in the Polar Wolf prison colony.


Was Navalny a Threat to Putin?

I find it funny that the media is putting Navalny on a pedestal when only a few years ago they condemned him as the Russian Trump. Why? For one thing, Navalny was a Russian Nationalist who felt immigration was killing Russia. For another, he was a Nazi sympathizer. It was for these reasons that, in February 2021, Amnesty International removed Navalny’s “Prisoner of Conscience” status.

Per Leander and Alexey Sakhninhe reported in the Russian magazine Jacobin that Navalny, "Participated regularly in the annual ultranationalist 'Russian March' in Moscow, and has made a series of racist statements about Muslims and people from the Caucasus and former Soviet Republics in Central Asia. Even worse, he expressed support for the 2013 Biryulyovo race riots, in which Russian skinheads attacked immigrants in a Moscow district."
According to The New Yorker Magazine, "British journalist Anatol Lieven, who covered Eastern Europe in the nineteen-eighties and nineties warned against idealizing Navalny." The New Yorker Magazine went on to say, "N.Y.U. professor Eliot Sorenstein, one of American academia's most prolific commentators on contemporary Russia, wrote on Facebook that Navalny, "Is not Nelson Mandela. He is Aung San Suu Kyi." Suu Kyi, the former leader of Myanmar, is best known for the genocide committed in Myanmar against Muslims during her rein.

Make no mistake, if Navalny won an election over Putin, then he would have been a far more brutal dictator than Putin. However, that would never have happened because, contrary to the media narrative, Navalny had the support of only 3% of Russian citizens. Does that sound like a threat to Putin. With 29% of the vote, the Communist Party is the biggest threat to Putin, not a one-off radical with only 3% of Russian citizens behind him.


Did Putin Poison Navalny?

As shown above, Navalny was not a threat to Putin. Therefore, Putin had no reason to poison him. Putin even stated that if he poisoned Navalny, then Navalny would be dead. Even so, the poison story goes down a rabbit hole of its own. We are told that Navalny was poisoned during a flight to Moscow. After which, he flew to Germany for treatment. If Putin wanted Navalny dead, would he have allowed him to fly to Germany? Stranger still, why are the German lab tests on Navalny classified? Furthermore, many of the German doctors said that no poison had been found in Navalny’s body and his condition was likely a result of metabolic disorder caused by low blood sugar. Additionally, some of the testing that was released indicated that Navalny was taking medications for both Parkinson’s disease and manic depression. It is also worth noting that Russia stopped making Novichok, the poison with which Navalny was supposedly stricken, back in the 1990s. Put simply, the collateral damage to their own agents made this poison too dangerous to handle. However, NATO countries continue to make Novichok under the guise of working on an antidote.


Did Putin Imprison Navalny?

Navalny was sentenced to prison for violating parole on suspended charges of fraud (embezzling funds raised through his foundation), contempt of court, and rehabilitating Nazi ideology. Unlike others, Navalny was shown leniency and given parole while others found guilty of the same crimes languished in prison. Navalny violated his parole by flying to Germany for treatment of his supposed poisoning. Even then, the Russian government suspended his parole during the time that Navalny laid in a German Hospital. After his recovery, instead of returning to Russia, Navalny went on an anti-Putin tour throughout Europe. During this time, law enforcement in Russia continually notified Navalny that he was in violation of parole and must return to Russia immediately. Instead, Navalny capped off this tour with a luxury vacation in the Canary Islands. Upon his return to Russia, Navalny was imprisoned for violating his parole.

The media loves to crow that Navalny was jailed in a penal colony in the Russian Artic Circle. It is worth mentioning that I have been to the Artic Circle in Alaska at the height of winter, and people do just fine there. In fact, I found the beauty of the Artic Circle breathtaking. Similarly, the town of Kharp, where the Polar Wolf prison colony is located, looks like a villa.

Was Navalny a Man of the People?

Navalny is often cited as a humanitarian advocate and fierce leader of the Anti-Corruption Foundation. I find it funny that the leader of an anti-corruption foundation was himself found guilty of corruption. If you remove the political filter of the mainstream media, Navalny's life tells the story of an opportunist who sought to use his public stature to enrich himself. In 2018, Navalny was found guilty of embezzling over half a million dollars from his Anti-Corruption Foundation. Additionally, Navalny had his Anti-Corruption Foundation pay him an annual salary of over five million dollars. In fact, the Navalny family lived a life of luxury that the majority of both Russians and Americans would envy. According to (a celebrity wealth tracking website), at the time of his death, Navalny's net worth was $55 million. Does this sound like a political activist who was oppressed by their government?

Recently, a New York Court fined Donald Trump $355 million and ruled that Trump could not sell his Mar-a-Lago property for more than $26 million. Since the street value Mar-a-Lago is realistically $2 billion, limiting its worth to $26 million will effectively prevent Trump from leveraging that property to pay the $355 million fine. If allowed to stand, these rulings would remove the majority of Trump's wealth. As of this writing, there are 91 felony charges against Trump, all of which could put him in prison for 641 years. Let us contrast this with Navalny. Navalny and his family were allowed to keep his wealth to, and after, the day of Navalny's death. Here in the U.S., Trump's wealth was taken away. Navalny was sentenced to twenty-eight years in prison for charges that were easily proven vs. a potential 641 years for Trump. Navalny was given a suspended sentence until he violated parole. If convicted, it is highly unlikely that the U.S. Department of Justice will suspend Trump's sentence. In light of these facts, does Navalny sound like an oppressed opposition leader? Furthermore, does the United States have a right to point a finger at Russia?

Was Navalny a Pawn of the CIA and MI6?

Consider this...

Russian intelligence released a video of Vladimir Ashurkov, the Executive Director of Navalny's Anti-Corruption Foundation and Navalny's right hand man, speaking with a person the Kremlin claims is James William Thomas Ford of the British intelligence agency MI6. In this video, Ashurkov and Ford plot a color revolution in Russia. Ashurkov is filmed asking for funding of $10-$20 million per year, stating that "This is not a lot of money for people who have billions at stake." Ashkurkov goes on to say that the money would help support mass protests, civil initiatives, propaganda, and making a deal with Russian elitists to run the country.
According to Armstrong Economics, Boris Nemtsov, another so called Russian opposition leader who died in 2015, plotted with Hermitage Capital to blackmail Boris Yeltsin into handing over control of Russia. This plan was believed to be backed by both the CIA and MI6. It is likely the plot would have succeeded until billionaire philanthropist Edmond Safra exposed money laundering in Russia, which was likely to expose the blackmail plot. It is widely believed that the CIA murdered Safra for his actions. Nemstov's mother was in fear of her son's life because she believed that Navalny was part of the CIA's clean up crew sent to cover up the plot.
According to Armstrong Economics, Ezra Cohen Watnick, undersecretary of defense for intelligence during the Trump administration stated, "Navalny's anti-corruption stance was not entirely what you think. The Western Intelligence operations had to clean up what took place with the whole blackmail plot of Yeltsin because he had appointed Putin to the FSA to prevent a coup, and he turned to him because (1) he was not a communist, and (2) he was not connected to Berezovsky's group of the Seven Oligarchs."
The poison supposedly used on Navalny is developed by NATO. Russian intelligence inferred that Navalny was poisoned by the west as an excuse to get him out of Russia, confer with his CIA and MI6 handlers, and put him on tour as a anti-Putin stooge.
Navalny's Anti-Corruption Foundation was funded largely by Western money

Who Murdered Navalny?

Let us use some critical thinking skills. Putin had absolutely nothing to gain by murdering Navalny and creating a martyr at a time when the world seems to be rallying against him. Why in the world would Putin take the spotlight away from himself just after scoring points by way of the Tucker interview? When it comes to timing, why would Putin murder Navalny just as the International Security meeting was getting underway in Munich; where all world leaders would have a prime-time pulpit to condemn him? Just as with the Nord Stream Pipeline, Putin had everything to lose by killing Navalny, and the United States had everything to gain.
