“For more than a decade, Russia has meddled in elections around the world, supported brutal dictators and invaded sovereign nations — all to the detriment of United States interests.”
The New York Times

The Resistance sure got a case of the vapors this week over Mr. Trump’s failure to throttle America’s arch-enemy, the murderous thug V. Putin of Russia, onstage in Helsinki, as any genuine Marvel Comix hero is expected to do when facing consummate evil. Instead, the Golden Golem of Greatness voiced some doubts about the veracity of our “intelligence community” — as the shape-shifting Moloch of black ops likes to call itself, as if it were a kindly service organization in Mr. Rogers neighborhood, collecting dimes for victims of childhood cancer.

If I may be frank, the US Intel community looks like a much bigger threat to American life and values than anything Mr. Putin is doing, for instance his alleged “meddling” in US elections. This word, meddling, absolutely pervades the captive Resistance news outlets these days. It has a thrilling vagueness about it, intimating all kinds of dark deeds without specifying anything, as consorting with Satan once did in our history. The reason: the only specific acts associated with this meddling include the disclosure of incriminating emails among the Democratic National Committee leadership, and a tiny gang of Facebook trolls making sport of profoundly idiotic and dysfunctional American electoral politics.

The brief against Russia also contains vague accusations of “aggression.” It is hard to discern what is meant by that — though it apparently warms the heart of American war hawks and their paymasters in the warfare industries. They allege that Russia “stole” Crimea from Ukraine. Consider: Crimea had been a province of Russia since the 1700s. Ukraine itself was a province of the USSR when Nikita Khrushchev put Crimea under Ukraine’s administrative control in 1956, a relationship which became obviously problematic after the breakup of the soviet mega-state in 1990 — and became even more of a problem when the US State Department and our CIA stage-managed a coup against the Russia-leaning Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych in 2014. Crimea is the site of Russia’s only warm water naval bases. Do you suppose that even an experienced American CIA analyst might understand that Russia would under no circumstances give up those assets? Please, grow up.

Does anyone remember the explicit promise that US Government gave the transitional leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, that NATO would not expand into the countries of eastern Europe formerly under soviet control? NATO now includes the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland, Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia, Albania, Croatia, and Montenegro. Is anyone aware that NATO has been staging war games on Russia’s border the past several years? Do you suppose this might be disturbing to the Russians, who lost at least 20 million dead when Germany crossed that border in 1941?

As to the thug-and-murderer charge against V. Putin, has any news org actually published a list of his alleged victims? It’s very likely, of course, that Mr. Putin has had some of his political enemies killed. I wouldn’t take the “con” side of that argument. But I’d  be interested in seeing an authoritative list, if the intel community has one (and why wouldn’t they?). I imagine it doesn’t exceed two dozen individuals. How many innocent bystanders did President Obama kill during the drone attack spree of his second term, when our rockets blew up wedding parties and sandwich shops in faraway lands. In 2016, The Atlantic published this:

One campaign, Operation Haymaker, took place in northeastern Afghanistan. Between January 2012 and February 2013, The Intercept reported, “U.S. special operations airstrikes killed more than 200 people. Of those, only 35 were the intended targets. During one five-month period of the operation, according to the documents, nearly 90 percent of the people killed in airstrikes were not the intended targets.”

I suppose the excuse is that none of this was personal — as V. Putin’s alleged murders were. No, it wasn’t personal. It was worse than that. It was a bunch of military video-game jocks sitting around an air-conditioned bunker eating hot pockets and slurping slurpees while snuffing out lives by remote control twelve-thousand miles away. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were high-fiving each other with every hit, too.

As for “hacking” of elections, do you suppose for minute that we do not have hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of computer techies at our many sprawling NSA facilities around the country working around the clock to penetrate foreign computer defenses absolutely everywhere, among friend and foe alike? And that we are not trying to influence the outcomes of their political struggles in our favor? Go a step further: do you suppose those US “intel community” hackers are not also collecting information about American citizens, including yourself?

    On CNN and a few other networks Russia is being described as an enemy, and Putin being equated with Adolf Hitler.

    Listening to some of these TV commentators it sounds as tho President Trump should have beaten the sh-t out of Putin right there Helsinki with a right cross, an uppercut, and two left hooks. Any other way makes him unpatriotic and a ‘Traitor’.

    It seems like the democrats and their Big Media agit/prop backers have not yet — after all this time — accepted they lost the 2016 election and are willing to prod Russia, a country with 6000 nuclear warheads pointed directly at us, into open conflict because of it.

      Bowing, shaking of hands, and niceties of diplomatic protocol are old school now. People want a cage-fight. Trump is not keeping up with the times. Trump needed to thump.

    • Neon Vincent July 20, 2018 at 10:10 am #

      You make it seem as if this is new. It’s not. The concern with Trump’s closeness to Putin goes back years. During the election, I called Trump’s affection for Putin a bad bromance, twice. I also called it a scandal, as I scored it as earning yes answers to all five questions on Nate Silver’s scandal checklist. Two years later, I’m not surprised that it’s still a scandal. The Trump-Putin meeting in Helsinki just reinforced two core negative perceptions about Trump that inspired me to write about the “bad bromance,” that he is an authoritarian who admires other authoritarians, especially Putin, and that he may be beholden to Putin as well.

      • K-Dog July 20, 2018 at 10:21 am #

        There is something new about it. Trump slow dancing with Putin and grabbing his ass may not be new, that’s true. What is new is an issue that transcends the actors.

        I come from a different time. Once upon a time there was a land where from sea to sea it was expected that your national leader would treat another national leader with hospitality and respect at a summit. Regardless of any international strains the purpose of a summit is not to start a war and insult.

        Apparently that land is long gone between our seas. Our video game addled citizens expected Trump to punch Putin or something worse. Here take that, BOOM. Here is one for your trolls, POW! SLAM WHAM!

        Opening a can of whoop-ass is an American value but showing respect for foreign leaders is a universal value. A value our moral center has lost.

        • Georges1202 July 20, 2018 at 10:37 am #

          Remember the ‘Kitchen Debate’ between a feisty Nixon and Khrushchev, veteran of Stalingrad? At the time it was a really big deal that an American VP would be so impertinent. It all seems like it happened in a different universe, much unlike this horrid mess we inhabit now.

          • K-Dog July 20, 2018 at 11:24 am #

            I looked at History.com and refreshed myself on the details. I love how the article I read about it closed.

            As with so many Cold War battles, however, there was no clear winner–except perhaps for the U.S. media, which had a field day with the dramatic encounter.

            At the time there was as much talk about how the two had acted as about what was said. Good behavior once mattered, but a one on one between Putin and Trump would sell a lot of Gatorade. Times have changed.

        • Steeleje July 20, 2018 at 1:12 pm #

          What does President Pussy-Grabber know about respect at a summit? He insults our allies at every meeting and has put hands on the Prime Minister of another country (Montenegro), physically moving him out of his way, so he could be at the front of the group.

          Let’s not pretend the Pussy-Grabber-And-Chief is some lost soul from the age of civility, not calling out Putin because of a sense of propriety.

          Trump is either compromised by dirt that the Russians have on him, financially tied to and working with Russian Oligarchs, or just so consumed by his narcissism that a little flattery by Putin has gone a very long way. Why else would he defer to someone like Putin and so combative to the leaders of countries that have had our back since the 1950’s?

            If you can’t objectively and honestly imagine any other possibilities why a US President would act reasonably respectfully to a Russian President at a summit, your understanding of politics and history are exposed as rudimentary at best.

            Or maybe the only possible explanation for his actions were…

            Ancient aliens! Geeesh, similar reductionism at play with your list.

            >>> He insults our allies at every meeting

            Yes how dare Trump demand that NATO members pay their fair share. And clearly Trump’s demands for more military spending proves Trump is controlled by Russia.

            We keep hearing EU nations say they can’t trust the USA for their security any more. Then they look at what it will cost them to handle their own security and they shut up. They remind me of USA liberals who keep saying they’ll move to Canada to escape Trump but never do.

      “On CNN and a few other networks Russia is being described as an enemy, and Putin being equated with Adolf Hitler.”

      A debate between “Der Spiegel” and CNN;

      “I knew Adolph Hitler…”

      “Adolph Hitler was a friend…”

      “And Putin, sir, is no Adolf Hitler….”

      I quake and Quayle at the prospect of such an exchange….

    • Anon1970 July 20, 2018 at 4:42 pm #

      If you know anything about Hitler, you probably know that he hated the Jews. Putin actually has a pretty good working relationship with Russia’s remaining Jewish community, especially the very religious Chabad sect. It is probably the best working relationship that a Jewish community in that part of the world has experienced with its rulers since a Polish king invited Jews to move to Poland to help develop its economy back in the Middle Ages. In June 2016, The Times of Israel ran an article about Netanyahu’s upcoming visit to Putin, his fourth in the space of a year.

      When it comes to election interference abroad, it should be noted that the US has not only interfered in many foreign elections, but it also helped overthrow elected leaders it didn’t like (e.g. Iran 1953 and Ukraine 2014).

      When it comes to election rigging at home, it is best to start at the top, namely the US Supreme Court, which in 2010 opened up the floodgates of Dark Money for US federal elections (the Citizens United decision). Have you ever wondered where the money came from for those horribly deceptive TV commercials in 2016?

      • Exscotticus July 20, 2018 at 8:58 pm #

        Trump is the first leader to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and liberals continue to label him an antisemite. Needless to say, Trump is popular in Israel.

      • jloughrey July 21, 2018 at 2:37 am #

        Don’t forget that the Supreme Court illegally appointed George W. Bush as President back in 2000, despite the fact that it was later found that Al Gore won in Florida, the disputed state. Dubya also mysteriously “won” in 2004 through widespread electronic voting machine fraud, particularly in Ohio. The DNC’s rigging of the primaries for Hillary in 2016 failed spectacularly when Trump became the unlikely president-elect. These election shenanigans on the part of our own government are nothing new. Russia is nothing more than a distraction.

If a pimply faced chicken choker can high five his buddies after smoking a sand monkey I doubt such a chicken choker would have any issue canceling the credit card of anybody not content to just sit back and enjoy the show.

    Sand monkey not being my preferred descriptor, it is there to make a point. Put a group of video playing puppies in a back room together and with the right prompting they could be made to terrorize just about anybody.

  4. thenuttyneutron July 20, 2018 at 9:55 am #

    I liked the comments about drone strikes.

    I wonder how the MSM would respond if a foreign government launched a drone strike on US soil against a war criminal that just happened to be a retired soldier that was now a “Black Rock” mercanary.
    What if the strike happened on a wedding along with a few dozen innocent civilians around him?

    I really don’t care about a foreign government hacking HRC. I am more concerned about her NEGLIGENCE in handling classified materials. The Secretary of State along with other officials in positions of power have to expect cyber attacks. Using the private email server was not just stupid, it was criminal. It is like leaving your car unlocked and full of valuables in the worst neighborhood in DC.

    Until I see a real investigation and fair trial, I will simply ignore this Russia bullshit.

    • hmuller July 20, 2018 at 5:14 pm #

      What I found revealing about the mindset of the Atlantic article JHK cited is that they didn’t refer to the drones killing “innocent people” but rather “unintended targets”. It’s like the victims were icons in a video game, nothing more.

      Bilal Abdul Kareem, a black American citizen who had been living for years in Syria as a free lance reporter has sued the US government to be taken off its death list after several narrow escapes from drone attacks.

      Oh, but it gets better. Not only can the deep state target American citizens abroad, but it’s my understanding that they can legally order drone strikes against American citizens in the USA (if they label you a terrorist). Well, that certainly simplifies the whole bothersome process of legal procedure.

        I was discussing this with someone and they stated, “If you haven’t done anything wrong, you shouldn’t be afraid.” I was stunned and said, “But who decides if you’ve done something wrong? How do you know they are corrupt in their assumptions?” She just walked away.

        All I could think was, “And she votes.”

    Trump is not Putin’s puppet and here’s why
    Trump has been trying to erode Russia’s monopoly over Europe’s gas market for the past year.

    aljazeera.com/amp/indepth/opinion/trump-putin-puppet-180718073251949.html?__twitter_impression=true

    “… Oil and gas are the Kremlin’s main foreign policy weapon and its main tool of ensuring internal stability. The rise in oil prices in the early 2000s made Putin what he is today. Gas is also the main leverage he has over the EU. Russia is Europe’s main exporter of gas and currently provides for 50 percent of its gas needs. Gas and oil pipelines are also one of the Kremlin’s main tools of control over energy-exporting countries in Central Asia, like Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan.

    “But this is also the weakness of Putin’s system. Russia’s economy continues to grow more dependent on the export of energy resources and today, they account for more than 60 percent of all exports.

    “And what has Trump been doing about that? He’s been putting pressure on Saudi Arabia to increase its oil output in order to compensate for Iran’s elimination from the market by US sanctions and keep the prices low. And he’s expecting Russia to back that move, even though the Russian economy is still suffering from a slump caused by the fall in oil prices in 2014.

    “More importantly, Trump has also been demanding that Europe cancel Nordstream-2, a gas pipeline project which is meant to increase the supply of Russian gas to northern Europe, especially Germany. Nordstream is Putin’s brainchild and is important not just from an economic perspective; it is meant to increase Russian leverage over Europe.”

    ” I wouldn’t be surprised if they were high-fiving each other with every hit, too.”

    theguardian.com/world/2010/apr/05/wikileaks-us-army-iraq-attack

    “A secret video showing US air crew falsely claiming to have encountered a firefight in Baghdad and then laughing at the dead after launching an air strike that killed a dozen people, including two Iraqis working for Reuters news agency, was revealed by Wikileaks today.”

    So, yes, I’d say that was quite likely.

    “Down here, the military is second in reverence only to Christian fundamentalism; War is an honor bound duty. In fact, the military is hardwired in with the fundamentalist Christian madrasses up and down the Shenandoah Valley cranking out 18-year-old Rambos for Jesus on a production line.

    “…Those like my nephews, one of whom keeps his .357 Glock in the nightstand and the Bible on the nightstand with the personal weapons permit for the Glock inside the Bible. To him, I’m sure there is a fundamental Christian symmetry in this…

    “…Like their parents, they know what has gone wrong in America, who is responsible and how to correct the situation. Just ask yourself: Who would Jesus kill? Muslims are always hollerin’ to meet Allah, and they’re more than happy to provide.45 caliber cab fare to heaven.”

      *Confederacy.* Although ‘Conferacy’ has a (con)’feral’ nuance that appeals too.

      And none of it excuses extra-judicial executions chez our Russian neighbours, who are nevertheless (as Europeans) our neighbours, even though I can’t quite see them from my house like Sarah P.

      And the kind of paranoia that makes you fear (and so ‘neutralise’) your dissidents is the same kind that is fed by Cold War fans on the other side. (Reasons, not excuses.)

      I’m no more a fan of Putin than I am of Trump, but they were both elected by their people (although Trump didn’t have the Putinesque luxury of removing any genuinely potentially successful candidates from the fray).

      But I’d rather buy Russian gas than sell British weapons to the House of Saud.

      • Exscotticus July 20, 2018 at 9:12 pm #

        @GreenAlba

        I don’t know much about Russian elections, but they don’t strike me as being as transparent and legitimate as those in the USA. That being said, there’s no doubt that Putin is popular in Russia.
        I guess I would take Russian democracy more seriously if Russian journalists who wrote bad things about Putin didn’t end up mysteriously dying in freak accidents.

        • GreenAlba July 21, 2018 at 7:52 am #

          We seem to be agreeing about something, Exscotticus.

          Although I think a lot of unhappy Russians would say the spurious removal of Navalny from the fray was pretty ‘transparent’ in its own way. Other serious contenders may be treated in the same ‘transparent’ way.

          And the journalists don’t always die in accidents. Some, like Anna Politkovskaya, are just brazenly assassinated. It’s never discovered who gave the order, though.

          Nor was there anything freakishly accidental about the death of Boris Nemtsov.

          Putin is definitely popular. Perhaps if the ‘new cold war’ died down, Russians wouldn’t be so enamoured of strong leaders whose antidemocratic tendencies have to be tolerated because they’re strong. Or maybe not. It has certainly never been possible to equate simply popularity with probity in political systems. Anti-corruption campaigners are effectively kept out of the media spotlight, and new political parties are routinely refused registration by the Justice Ministry if the Kremlin doesn’t like them.

          My own view is that we have to engage as positively as possible with leaders like Putin, but we don’t have to start fawning over them and pretending they’re not what we know them to be. The way your leaders and ours ‘engage’ with the Saudis turns my stomach.

          We aren’t disagreed on anything here, though, I think. I have never supported attempts to remove Trump before his allotted time, as you should know, although if he and Putin are thinking of cooking something up in Iran, I’m worried.

      • Helen Highwater July 20, 2018 at 11:55 pm #

        Actually there was a genuinely potentially successful candidate who was removed from the fray in the last US election, but he was removed by dirty dealings by the Democrats, not by Trump. (I’m referring to Bernie Sanders, in case you don’t get my drift.)

        There were several other candidates running in the last election in Russia. And there are a number of Americans who died in freak accidents too. But we don’t talk about them, people would rather concentrate on the ones who died in Russia.

        • GreenAlba July 21, 2018 at 8:02 am #

          Helen H

          I did get your drift and I agree. Although the seriously dodgy dealings were not quite the same as a long-sitting president (who had his seat kept warm while running things from the wings after his first two terms until he could come back) rigging the candidate list himself.

          And the Dems’ plan didn’t work, of course. They shot themselves in the foot somewhat. Putin seems to have a better aim. Strong and stable – a stable genius in fact 🙂 .

          And I have no doubt we could ‘bring up the bodies’ in a number of ‘democratic’ countries.

      To set the context, it began all the way back in 1995, when the U.S. Supreme Court handed down a 9-0 ruling that a homosexual activist group could not march in the St. Patrick’s Day parade in South Boston. That would not be the last word. The culture-wreckers would not be content. THE CATHOLIC ACTION LEAGUE OF MASSACHUSETTS & the pro-family group MASSRESISTANCE have chronicled the sad demise of the parade on their websites.

      In 2013 Boston mayoral candidate Marty Walsh promised homosexual activists that if elected, he would compel the Veterans Council to agree to homo marchers in the parade. Shortly after taking office in 2014, Walsh began a campaign of vicious intimidation. In 2015, BOSTON PRIDE marchers were allowed in. Another group, OUTVETS also marched in the 2015 parade. MASSRESISTANCE reported, “By all accounts, OUTVETS is a contrived group of Boston city employees created in late 2014 by Mayor Marty Walsh specifically to be a homosexual ‘veterans’ presence in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.” But OUTVETS is composed of veterans of the U.S. military! How can they not be allowed to fully participate?! How unjust that would be! Let the Virtue Signalling & Moral Preening begin!!!

      The two LGBT groups marched again in 2016. The CATHOLIC ACTION LEAGUE & MASSRESISTANCE amassed over 6,000 signature demanding that “organizers remove the name of St. Patrick from the parade because the inclusion of anti-Catholic homosexual groups made it impossible to honor a Catholic saint.”

      The final capitulation came in 2017. Mayor Walsh continued his campaign of intimidation, especially lobbying the VETERANS COUNCIL for their approval. Worse, Antifa-style riots were planned to disrupt the event if LGBTQ groups were not allowed full participation. NO MAINSTREAM NEWS OUTLET EVER REPORTED ON THOSE THREATS OF VIOLENCE.

      The Boston Police Commissioner office got in on the act. It warned parade organizer Tim Duross that Busloads of activists were planning to come to Boston to disrupt the event. There would be violence & even possible deaths. The police strongly implied that they would not be able to contain the violence and that responsibility would rest squarely on the organizers’ shoulders. “Nice little place ya got here, be a shame if anything ever happened to it.” All this time, the Boston Archdiocese never stepped in to put the nominal Catholics such as Mayor Walsh in their place. Of course, the Catholic church has lost all credibility & authority over its members.

      “The demise of Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is just one example of how allowing LGBTQ individuals to openly serve in the U.S. military has opened doors for their activist interference in other social realms.  If LGBTQ participation in the military is recognized as legitimate, who can refuse to recognize their inclusion in other settings?” — Amy Contrada

        I used to go to the same poetry reading with a Boston Brahmin. An immensely urbane man, a professor of poetry, he had attended the Arlington St Church for decades. Not a believer of course, just a cultural Christian. He whimsically described how one or two showed up and then more. Always asking for tolerance and acceptance, and always getting it. But they don’t give tolerance and once they attained power, they were ruthless in the use of it.

        The Lavender Mob are gifted students of Alinsky and the Frankfurt School. And they have an ultimate vision, and both the means and the WILL to achieve it. I’d much prefer to live under Islam. And fear not, if we fail to stop them, Islam will. This is just another way of approaching the gap between the Luciferian Global Elite and Islam. They are very strange allies and that will end immediately upon our demise.

    Give ‘e, hell Jim! Way to go, yes the hot pocket munching joystick jockeys operating their toys of death even dress up in flight suits and pretend to be real pilots as they deal out death indiscriminately from their holes. The government actually recruits them from mobile tractor trailers set up with video games that they send to local county fairs across the country, I have seen many of these from the inside myself. Hypocrisy is one of the vilest of all human acts IMHO, and the propaganda monkeys that are peddling this crap to the American public are the vilest of humans. Those of us who are old enough to remember the Cold War and what was admitted on BOTH sides are the ones who understand what is going on here, a rebirth of McCarthyism apparently and a rebirth of hostilities against Russia. Yes you can never trust the Russia as Grandma used to warn, but you can never trust our spooks either, certainly not since they absorbed Herr Himmler’s finest after WWII.

    Unfortunately, those who did not live through it are easily duped into buying into the spin and I cannot wait until our resident warmongers assemble around your post today and cry out once again for blood. Perhaps this ploy is part of a movement to take our eyes off of China, you know, a bit of “look over here, while I do something over there”.

    In any case, those of us that have seen the impotence of violence and war may understand the Great Lie in it all, but those who have not are ramping up, it would seem, to go for the gusto once again. Good thing for them that the fighting will be done by someone else, or someone else’s sons and daughters, for they will certainly not get involved, will they. If we are lucky they will have to wait a bit longer until more of us who understand the lie die off.

    • ozone July 20, 2018 at 12:27 pm #

      Walter,
      Once again, I find your perspective valuable and helpful in our understanding of just what the hell is goin’ on!

      I have one minor (and I do mean *minor*) quibble with this:

      “… I cannot wait until our resident warmongers assemble around your post today and cry out once again for blood.”

      I would say that the preferred methodology is to distract from JHK’s points altogether with diversions into libruls, evil wimmenz, fuzzy-wuzzies and vicious niggers of extremely low intelligence. A fine and proven set of thought-stoppers. Expect ‘assemblage’ around these pressing issues instead of war promotion.

      • ozone July 20, 2018 at 12:40 pm #

        Sorry! Forgot to add the ever-present “Color Project” lengthy hallucinations (and discourses thereby). Those waste a lot of time and space too. It’s my impression that since Americans have no concept of focus anymore (whether by accident or design), these diversions are not difficult to effect.

        This poem praises the warrior qualities of a Black African tribe. Is this too much for Ozone’s delicate sensibilities? Is he some kind of Liberal racist? Or just a garden variety pacifist?

        Am I pro-War? No. Am I anti-War? No. It all depends on the War…

        Fuzzy Wuzzy by Rudyard Kipling

        (Soudan Expeditionary Force)
        We’ve fought with many men acrost the seas,
        An’ some of ’em was brave an’ some was not:
        The Paythan an’ the Zulu an’ Burmese;
        But the Fuzzy was the finest o’ the lot.
        We never got a ha’porth’s change of ‘im:
        ‘E squatted in the scrub an’ ‘ocked our ‘orses,
        ‘E cut our sentries up at Suakim,
        An’ ‘e played the cat an’ banjo with our forces.
        So ‘ere’s to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, at your ‘ome in the Soudan;
        You’re a pore benighted ‘eathen but a first-class fightin’ man;
        We gives you your certificate, an’ if you want it signed
        We’ll come an’ ‘ave a romp with you whenever you’re inclined.

        We took our chanst among the Khyber ‘ills,
        The Boers knocked us silly at a mile,
        The Burman give us Irriwaddy chills,
        An’ a Zulu impi dished us up in style:
        But all we ever got from such as they
        Was pop to what the Fuzzy made us swaller;
        We ‘eld our bloomin’ own, the papers say,
        But man for man the Fuzzy knocked us ‘oller.
        Then ‘ere’s to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, an’ the missis and the kid;
        Our orders was to break you, an’ of course we went an’ did.
        We sloshed you with Martinis, an’ it wasn’t ‘ardly fair;
        But for all the odds agin’ you, Fuzzy-Wuz, you broke the square.

        ‘E ‘asn’t got no papers of ‘is own,
        ‘E ‘asn’t got no medals nor rewards,
        So we must certify the skill ‘e’s shown
        In usin’ of ‘is long two-‘anded swords:
        When ‘e’s ‘oppin’ in an’ out among the bush
        With ‘is coffin-‘eaded shield an’ shovel-spear,
        An ‘appy day with Fuzzy on the rush
        Will last an ‘ealthy Tommy for a year.
        So ‘ere’s to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, an’ your friends which are no more,
        If we ‘adn’t lost some messmates we would ‘elp you to deplore;
        But give an’ take’s the gospel, an’ we’ll call the bargain fair,
        For if you ‘ave lost more than us, you crumpled up the square!

        ‘E rushes at the smoke when we let drive,
        An’, before we know, ‘e’s ‘ackin’ at our ‘ead;
        ‘E’s all ‘ot sand an’ ginger when alive,
        An’ ‘e’s generally shammin’ when ‘e’s dead.
        ‘E’s a daisy, ‘e’s a ducky, ‘e’s a lamb!
        ‘E’s a injia-rubber idiot on the spree,
        ‘E’s the on’y thing that doesn’t give a damn
        For a Regiment o’ British Infantree!
        So ‘ere’s to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, at your ‘ome in the Soudan;
        You’re a pore benighted ‘eathen but a first-class fightin’ man;
        An’ ‘ere’s to you, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, with your ‘ayrick ‘ead of ‘air —
        You big black boundin’ beggar — for you broke a British square!

      • ozone July 20, 2018 at 7:58 pm #

        Walter,
        I shall *attempt* to share your optimism that there exists a “new silent majority/aware minority” that can identify who their enemies really are (despite all the bullshittery and bottomless wells of lies and misdirection). We have an awful lot of information that might lead us to a position of hardened cynicism, so it’s a bit difficult to save hope for common cause some space where the ol’ gullibility couch-lounger used to reside before it was mercifully self-euthanized by the ingestion of a case of family sized bags of Cheez Doodles, washed down with 4 or 5 liters of Diet Coke (tm Koch Ind. Inc.). Cable teevee was still blaring away, so I’m certain it was a blissfully unaware passing…

    Anatomy of a Displacement-Projection Syndrome is so Jungian and so right-on. Trump has only to exist and the Resistance snake dance makes him look sane by comparison. If Trump wasn’t President all this slime and graft would continue unknown and unchecked until the end of the USA as a viable nation. No other ego on Earth could absorb as much vitriol and survive, maybe.

    • Janos Skorenzy July 20, 2018 at 1:52 pm #

      I had made that point often during the election. People would say, “But he’s such an egomaniac!”

      Well obviously…and if he wasn’t he would have wilted like so many had before him under exponentially less concerted attacks by the “Deep Culture” (had to use the silly Comey pretend distinction) and their corporatist stenographers in the legacy media (aka…OWI).

      Without his ego, he wouldn’t be president. Duh to those too one dimensional to notice, eh?

      • Exscotticus July 20, 2018 at 9:33 pm #

        Anyone who runs for POTUS is an egomaniac. And this is true no matter how many times they use folksy terms like “some folks”, as in “We tortured some folks”.

        But it takes an exceptional ego to not sacrifice your campaign promises for those who despise you and didn’t and wouldn’t vote for you under any circumstance.

      The goal is not to fool all of the people all the time. All that matters is enough get fooled enough of the time so protest becomes un-American. Un-American in an, if you are not with us, you are against us, patriotism on steroids sort of way. We have probably already reached that point. Consider all news is now about Trump. The paper tiger of his illegitimacy as president is attacked daily and without any purpose, at heart it is a non-issue. It is a shiny object that diverts attention away from things that matter. In your mind you can be Luke Skywalker and save the galaxy or you can impeach Trump. Same difference, both are fantasies which live only between your ears.

      For this paragraph I could bolster my point by finding a story to link to, maybe a picture to go along with it too. Perhaps an environmental travesty like our now common export of coal to foreign lands. But you might not care about that. You might even be making money off the coal going to Chinese power plants yourself. That being a possibility I won’t write such a paragraph.

      Instead I’ll ask everybody else to think of something they think should be on the news instead of Trump. An issue you personally think is more important than he. After you do that, make like the justice lady! You don’t need a blindfold, closing your eyes and thinking will do.

    I live 15 miles from a major university and know a few professors and as a local musician most people I know are self described liberals. It has been amusing to me to watch otherwise intelligent people losing their everloving minds over the current administration. I read about news outlets such as CNN and MSNBC talking heads going nuts as well but not having cable and being a reader rather than a viewer I hadn’t really understood.That changed this week when my wife and I travelled out of town to check up on my ailing mother. There wasn’t a lot to do so I watched the major news outlets.Holy brain fart Batman, if anything JHK and others are ,if anything, underestimating the derangement of these talking heads.Even my wife who isn’t particularly interested in these things noticed it as well.No wonder liberals are going insane. They believe all these people verbatim. What ever happened to critical thinking? JHK is dead spot on about the so called intelligence community. Even Eric Blair would be amazed at what these agencies have accomplished. At this rate,no one gets out alive.

The Oligarchs are not our friends, and the government pretty much exists to do their bidding. A dictatorship won’t be long in coming, I’m sure that much of the prep work has been undertaken already.

    Nice assessment Jim. The American people as a group (mob?) are incapable of self-reflection, introspection, or critical self-assessment. All that shit is for other countries that aren’t exceptional.

    This sentiment carries over at the individual level too. How else does someone arrive at 400 lbs without stopping in the 300 lb range or before and asking what is going on? Can I change this course? Hence, our inevitable trajectory toward decline while dreaming of techno fixes for everything. Why do the hard work of changing your own poor habits yourself, or even trying to figure out what they might be? Just let some techno-bullshit do it for you!

    It’s the hustlers creed of scamming people out of money, time, labor, or anything they can get that this country was built upon now fully realized. We’ve all been conned, lied to and racketeered so thoroughly that there’s no critical thought left out there. Unbelievably, we have large segments of the population across the political spectrum screaming for the system of self-deception to stay in place at any cost. Or, to return us to when our self-deception was really good. Drill, baby, drill.

      How do those that get into the 300 plus poundage class get there is a wonder that I have often pondered. I have always found that once I reached the 250 mark it starts to really hurt and the bloat is quite uncomfortable. Perhaps those who grow to such mass lack the feelings of pain and discomfort. Genetics certainly has a great deal to do with it as some are genetically constructed to function well in poverty with little sustenance. When those of such genetic construction are placed in a society where crappy, cheap food is readily available, well, the results are easy to see. Perhaps they are genetically disposed to store as much as possible for the hungry season, not that these happen here in America. At least not yet.

      I am told there was a time when those who were so motivated would search for a need that people had for stuff or service and then enter into a business of filling those needs for profit. It appears today that the way things work is to CREATE a need and then take advantage of the needy to the fullest extent utilizing marketing, advertising, and peer pressure to keep the herd consuming mass quantities. It is even more profitable if the supplier can buy enough sellout politicians in order to mandate consumption as in the case of healthcare and insurances.

      Yes we are surrounded by insurmountable odds with little to no hope for success. What an EXCELLENT opportunity to show them what we are made of, eh? Give ’em hell!

A bit of self control in the beer and in-between-meal snacks keeps me under my mark. Being a big guy, 240 is very doable, though 220 would be ideal.

    The US foreign policy is in a state of chaos, as the dominant US elite, becoming a victim of its own propaganda, is unable to formulate its goals, and that unfortunately includes President Donald Trump, who opposes the so-called establishment of the United States.

    In particular, the greatest secret of the United States foreign policy is that the term “deterrence” signifies depriving the USSR, and now Russia, of the ability to inflict “unacceptable damage” on the US after the disarming strike of US against Russia.

    That is why the deployment of short-range missiles in Turkey in late 1950s, in no way could deter the USSR, but quite the opposite was a provocation that forced the Soviet leadership to activate the operation Anadyr (the secret deployment of nuclear missiles in Cuba).

    It is now even difficult to imagine what contrivances Cold War propaganda masters had to go to for presenting plans for an attack on the USSR as reflecting “Russian aggression”, what myths they invented, what secrets “leaked” to the press!

    And now, when the great chess board turned 180 degrees, even military experts use these myths to analyze the current situation, forgetting that this is an old propaganda, and not an adequate description of the situation 40 years ago.

    According to one of these legends, the American Civil Defense was intended to convince Khrushchev-Brezhnev that the US would use nuclear weapons if crowds of Soviet tanks rush to the English Channel, as tests of the 15-megaton Thermonuclear Castle Bravo at Bikini Atoll in March 1954 showed that if similar charge will explode in Washington, then everyone will die in this glorious city at once, and in Philadelphia and New York at a distance of 200 and 350 kilometers respectively within an hour and no Civil Defense will help anyone.

    Modern experts believe that those days American plans to win a nuclear war were completely insane – nationalinterest.org/blog/the-buzz/americas-insane-plan-survive-soviet-nuclear-attack-21399 , but President Kennedy at least knew where the legs grew from, and when Soviet nuclear missiles appeared on Cuba, he immediately ordered the preparation of the evacuation of nuclear missiles from Turkey, without waiting for the appearance of Adjubei, who allegedly saved the world from a nuclear war by transferring Khrushchev’s proposals to Kennedy.

    And modern experts over the past 30 years have convinced the American people that they do not need to be afraid of a bomb, since Russian red button can be taken away and disassembled into spare parts, similar to the way USSR was dismantled into spare parts without any explosions in Washington.

    Intoxicated by the collapse of the USSR, they consider this possible in connection with the lack of a finger among the Russian elite to press the notorious button, and Russia in its new military doctrine makes it clear that the United States has long passed the red line that can not be crossed by communicating with the nuclear power and now Russia will have to prove the functionality of the finger by its direct combat use.

    But American experts will not say this, nor will they say that the best guarantee of the security of the Baltic republics and Poland is the strict implementation of the agreement on transit to the Kaliningrad region, and if it is violated, American soldiers on the Polish-Lithuanian border is another reason for getting a Russian nuclear fist in the Polish-Lithuanian muzzle, and not a security guarantee.

    And Donald Trump mentions the aggressiveness of the people of Montenegro after the meeting with Vladimir Putin because he understands that the membership of Montenegro in NATO is a bomb planted under his presidency, and if Russia is forced to use force, nobody in the West would give a flying bleep about Montenegro – NATO article 5 be damned – , but Trump will be arrested as a puppet of an inhuman dictator, killing after breakfast the Montenegrin and Lithuanian children by the thousands.

      And then of course there was Vietnam where we prevented the election which would have resulted in a national government under Ho Chi Mien. There probably would have been a war anyway because of the opposition from the Vietnamese French trained Catholic elite. However, the war would have ended long, long before 1975.

      Guatemalan Communist Personnel to be disposed of during Military Operations of Calligeris”, Origin deleted, Undated.

      Not to worry. Fox news does not cover such things. I had to GOOGLE and go to the National Security Archive of George Washington University to get the above link. Anybody could do that but nobody does because ignorance does not fan the flames of curiosity. I not being completely ignorant already had known something about how Jacobo Arbenz had been treated in Guatemala. I was thus motivated, but after a hot pocket and a slurpie, and knowing nothing about Jacobo, I might not have been.

      * Che was on the list. He was warned and because he was warned, the young doctor Ernesto Guevara was radicalized into becoming a revolutionary. Che left Guatemala and then met Castro in Mexico. The rest is history.

      • Janos Skorenzy July 20, 2018 at 2:03 pm #

        Castro came to hate Che because of his racism against Blacks. I assume he was fine with his brutality against White Cubans, especially the well to do. This is your Madiba complex bubbling up again. All your heroes are dark, and I don’t just mean their skin color.

        Castro may have also been offended at Che taking over the digs of those whom he disposed of, and living high off the hog. Castro may have been a sincere man in his Communist Asceticism.

        • malthuss July 20, 2018 at 2:38 pm #

          Another rumor–contrary to the ‘Motorcycle Diaries’ is that Che was sent to SA to get rid of him. Che was as dumb as he was dangerous, even to Fidels revolution.

          You sure don’t know your history. Che was the one who liked to rough it. Castro preferred good food and only the best cigars, not so Che. Che would be the first one to get on your case if you went Bourgeoisie. Che knew that an average steak eaten after a day long trek in the mountains had worked up an appetite would be transformed into a gourmet delight.

          Life can only be enjoyed by those with the courage to live. Che knew this.

          • Janos Skorenzy July 20, 2018 at 5:52 pm #

            I accept your correction. And if you know this much, you must also know about Che’s distaste for Blacks. Che was a White Hispanic and proud of it. In order to share the wealth, you have to have some wealth to share. Giving everything Whites have to Blacks may be fun, but like a runaway roller coaster, reality is going to hit very hard.

            Maybe Castro caught on later. Remember the incursion of boat people? Almost all Black. They sent us their worst….

The fulminators of these events are far from hysterical. Rather the events are well thought out psyops. The motivations and individuals behind the madness need to be exposed.

      These people seek $$$$$. Greed is behind the show.

      Greed is by definition a zero sum game. Taking more than one is entitled to takes away from others, and that is what greed does. Greed being unjust, cultivates a miasma of lies and falsehood.

      Truth is no friend of greed, confusion and obfuscation is the environment greed needs to thrive. Cultivation of lies falsehoods and misdirections, being the nest in which to live become greeds’ goal. Trump eased up regulations and temporary exuberance has resulted. This means the rich are harvesting the cream on top of the milk right now and selling their bad paper to you. So that you do not notice they make sure the news only talks of Russia.

      IMHO – A culture consumed by greed must fail. Failure by not taking care of business, some kind of system collapse, will be the cause . An atmosphere of lies and falsehoods will not allow infrastructure to be build and maintained or any meaningful plans for a future made. Greed self destructs any society that embraces it.

          Hitchens argues that conspiracies exist and are called lunch (between senior political correspondents and senior politicians). He also quotes Andrew Cunningham, a former aide to Tory minister (or perhaps ex-minister now) Michael Gove, about everyone in government running around like headless chickens looking for short-term fixes, not knowing what they are doing or why.

          In September 2015 Merkel made her most fateful decision, to let in countless immigrants and thereby encouraging millions more. An experienced Berlin correspondent, Belgian Clementine Forissier, said a few days later on French radio that this was the first time she had seen the Chancellor make a decision that was not carefully thought out (supporting your argument) and that what she did was (from memory) ‘rapide, émotionelle et pas rationelle’ (which clinches mine).

          • Sean Coleman July 21, 2018 at 3:53 pm #

            Dominic Cummings not Andrew Cunningham. I must have mixed the name up with Andrew Neather, former senior Labour adviser, who famously let slip that Blair’s government were throwing the gates open to immigrants for social reasons, to ‘rub the right’s nose in it’ by means of an irreversible fait accompli. This too may have been planned, or at least plotted, but its irrational (not to say insane) nature suggests hysteria rather than calculated cunning.

          • Luhrenloup July 21, 2018 at 6:05 pm #

          • Sean Coleman July 22, 2018 at 11:05 am #

            I followed your link but I already knew what it would say: that it helps Germany’s demographic problem with an ageing population and keeps the export economy going. I first saw it a number of weeks after September 2015 and is clearly an attempt to rationalize the irrational.

            It was usual up to only a few short years ago to read articles by economists, and by journalists relying on economists, to justify mass immigration because of its alleged benefits, mainly the demographic one. When you scratch the surface of the subject you see that the drawbacks far outweigh the advantages, which is what common sense also says. I do not remember reading any such articles more recently, although that could be because I have stopped reading economists anyway.

            Anyway, back to Merkel. For this to be planned she must either have engineered the hysteria or coolly bided her time for such an opportunity to arise in order to take advantage of it. I know that politicians routinely use disaster stories to bury bad news but this is stretching it.

          • Luhrenloup July 22, 2018 at 1:19 pm #

            Good morning Sean. Coming from an immigrant community myself, I can attest that it will take 50 to 75 years for Germany’s immigrants to become true “Germans.” I’m sure Angela, who would never be mistaken as being emotionelle (checkout her dealings with the Greeks) foresaw that and understood the price to be paid. it’s like Trump said about the tariffs, it would probably hurt for a while, but would resound to the good in time.

            Nobody attacks Trump on issues. We now have politics that expresses pure power where different points of view are not discussedl.

    Well said Mr Kunstler! The Amerikan empire is in catabolic collapse,feasting on itself as deep state factions vie for supremacy,very similar to twilight days of USSR,which leads to my observation that perhaps you should refer to Trump as the Golden Golem of Gorbachov-ness.
    Both men came to power vowing to reform moribund dysfunctional empires & were confronted by corrupt elites unwilling to change.
    Will Trump suffer the same fate as his Soviet counterpart?

    • K-Dog July 20, 2018 at 12:55 pm #

      It is just greed. Catabolic collapse is further down the pike. Catabolic collapse was coined to advocate for a gradual decline post peak rather than a hard crash referred to a Seneca Cliff.

      “It would be some consolation for the feebleness of our selves and our works if all things should perish as slowly as they come into being; but as it is, increases are of sluggish growth, but the way to ruin is rapid.”

      (Lucius Anneaus Seneca (4 BCE – 65 CE), Letters to Lucilius, n. 91)

      I don’t think much of the concept, somebody thought of it to be contrarian. The bread and butter of a robe wearer. Science does not back it up. Fact is if we became cannibals it would be all over in 6 weeks. That is how long the math says our stored body energy will last. Feeding off repackaged remnants of our failed civilization will be no different. The only way we could live off our remnants for any length of time at all is if our population crashes. As in a fall off a Seneca cliff which by definition is not catabolic.

      Even then we could not be catabolic for long. Things rot rust and fail with time. Thinking a future traveler is going to stumble across pristine artifacts of our time is the stuff of novels, not life. Foam materials generally become goo or dust within a couple of decades. Many flexible molecules, excepting those of a natural origin like leather and wood, seem to be unstable with time.

          I am saying it won’t be decades. Things rot and rust. Many plastics are unstable and degrade with time. The idea of a ‘picker’ teaching salvaging skills to a new generation makes for a good story but the reality is things won’t even last a single generation. Ticky-tacky goes bad fast. Things are not made to last.

          The idea of catabolic collapse ignores real world facts. The overextended, overly complex, energy dependent, modern world can’t simply gracefully fold in on itself. The world is being ruined beyond repair and the romantic idea of any kind of unmanaged smooth unwinding is crazy. With the loss of a basic input it falls apart. There is no curtain call.

          Cybernetic coups also make for good story but the fact is the microprocessors which can drive a robot revolution have been around for more than thirty years. The software to support such a revolution or anything remotely like it still does not exist in even a rudimentary form. Robots are very complex labor intensive creatures to and we really have no clue on how to make them independent functional agents.

          A crashing economy won’t be rescued by expensive robots each one of which is the product of a hundred or more supply chains and each of which would need custom software to do a specific and narrow job because general purpose AI is not even on the drawing boards. Robot rescue is an economic nightmare and why is it that people always think robots can just run on batteries that never have to be recharged?

If he’s right, the impact is coming quickly, and it will land hard, with enormous consequences for the average person, and the world in general.

            An exchange such as this could start with ‘With all due respect…

            Nobody needs to tell me anything about algorithms.

            It turns out Martin Ford and I have somewhat equivalent academic credentials. We are both magna cum laude, I however have far more real world experience working with computer hardware and firmware than Martin does. My graduate degree is in Software Engineering not business as his is. The fact is I could tell Martin more about algorithms than he could tell me, technically being more knowledgeable than he.

            I am actually an expert on issues Robotic and nothing I write about the subject will ever be pulled from my ass. Honesty is my style anyway, but regarding computers I am an expert. I should write a book. It could happen.

            I’m also going to suggest the current rapidity of technical change is an illusion. The world between 1900 and 1918 changed orders of magnitude more than the world has changed between the years 2000 and 2018. What we call progress is rearrangement of deck chairs. There is nothing new under the sun.

            Technological advancement has stalled and technology is stuck improving what we already have. No paradigm shift is coming at us and there won’t be one in our future again. There is not enough time before petroleum production fails and all progress of any kind stalls.

            Techno-gnostic magic happens only in your dreams while you hover-board around never-never land in your sleep. Dreams where real world resource constraints and the laws of physics have no place.

            Robots, truth be told can’t work for a minimum wage. A robot had an arm fail where I work last month. Having a replacement arm Fed-Exed in was $10,000. The original arm had worked for less than a year and had not earned a fraction of that value. This is the sort of thing that makes a ‘Rise of the Robots’ a pipe dream.

    “Donald Trump is #winning. On the back of an already excellent week where he was gifted a football and impeded a monarch, right now the president is also leaping up Google’s image search rankings, to pole position.

    “When you type the word ‘idiot’ into Google’s image search, Trump is the first returned result. This is partly because the Green Day song American Idiot was used by protesters to soundtrack his trip to London. But since then there’s also been a concerted campaign to capitalize on that association, and manipulate Google’s algorithm, by linking the word to the picture. Mostly this involved people upvoting a post containing a photo of him and the word ‘idiot’ on Reddit.

    “This may seem unfair to his most fervent supporters. But if there’s one thing Google is keen to emphasize, it’s that search ain’t fair.”

        Learn something new every day. Except why would anyone want to pollute their mind with filth like this? Politically-motivated filth at that. There are three components to Leftist activism: 1) the unassimilated ethnics 2) the sexual deviants & 3) the privileged misfits.

            Your mind seems to studiously ignore a lot. The Left has been active since the French Revolution as a destructive force in society. It was active before that, it just wasn’t called the Left until then. At one time, it latched onto the plight of the workingman, but that was just strategic. It offered the greatest payoff at that time.

    The Deep State ploy to meddle in the US political system, expand NATO, unchecked full spectrum hegemony- all par for the course. The full backing of the Dems- wow what a coup! Trump’s approval rating is ratcheting up, very high among Republicans; a demographic who are pretty well armed. Do lefties think his supporters will sit quietly by while he’s deposed? Are Dems prepared to civil war just to install Pence? Are they even capable of thinking this far down the line? And what about when the deep state blunders us into World War III- will liberals be sending their children to some Eastern European country they’ve never heard of to invade Moscow? Oh wait I forgot these people always find a class privilegey legal way to avoid conscription for their kids. Will Chris Cuomo don his muscle shirt and steel helmet to report on the slaughter? Don’t understand what’s going on am I the crazy one? Thanks for voice of sanity Jim.

    My nephew works in a professional position at a Russian-owned steel manufacturing plant in the western U.S.A. The Russians bough at a bargain and refurbished old steel mills that US companies had given up on. BTW, they pay top union wages with above average benefits.
    Therefore, as Arthur Jenson (played by Ned Beatty) eloquently said in the movie NETWORK written by Paddy Chayefsky: “You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations. There are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no third worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interactive, multivariate, multinational domain of dollars, Petro-dollars, electro-dollars, multi-dollars, reichmarks, rins, rubles, pounds and shekles…” is more true today.

    in fact, wars are a business. reference the following Anthony Sutton books for proof:
    WALL STREET AND THE RISE OF HITLER
    THE BEST ENEMY MONEY CAN BUY
    Joe Blow, patriotic citizen, goes to war and either gets killed, maimed or incurs PTSD, while the multinationalcorporations prosper with bigger bonuses and paychecks for their execs.

    I shudder at the hysterics and outcry that would ensue if Trump killed two American citizens, one a teenager, with an MQ9 Reaper drone stike in Yemen, like Obama did. I bet he wouldn’tget the NobelPeace Prize! The Reaper was developed and is now manufactured by General Atomics, who at one time was engaged in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. They designed a helium-cooled gas reactor that couldn’t meltdown. However, with a huge defense budget, now at 700 billion dollars, war is good for business
    The documentary DIRTY WARS by Jeremy Scahill is enlightning.

    • libertysghost July 20, 2018 at 4:35 pm #

      True enough, though I think it’s always important to remember that in a corporatist system, the state holds functional superiority with its “monopoly on legitimized force & violence”.

      Without a vast centralized “state”, the “corporations” (which exist at the discretion of the powerful/inherently viilent state) have no incentive to lobby (& bribe) the bosses of the state system.

      “Money” is a means to an end…not the ends themselves. The power to control other people is what “money” buys. That is the “ends” being pursued dont ya think?

      And then sometimes people in power enjoy human suffering and death. I have often wondered why simple psychopathology is so neglected when explaining historical travesties.

      • BuckP July 20, 2018 at 7:24 pm #

        Good comments!
        In Anthony Sutton’s books, he explains that the large corporations use the state (via bribery, lobbeying, placement of execs in key government positions, etc.) to decrease competition by using regulations, allowing mergers, etc. in order to drive competitors out of business while at the same time feeding at the public trough. Large,multinational, corporations believe in socialism (for them), not for the benefit of the average citizen, and are not fans of a free market or laissez faire economics. This is corporatism, corporate socialism or facism, which we have had in America for sometime.

    “As to the thug-and-murderer charge against V. Putin, has any news org actually published a list of his alleged victims? It’s very likely, of course, that Mr. Putin has had some of his political enemies killed. I wouldn’t take the “con” side of that argument. But I’d be interested in seeing an authoritative list, if the intel community has one (and why wouldn’t they?). I imagine it doesn’t exceed two dozen individuals. How many innocent bystanders did President Obama kill during the drone attack spree of his second term, when our rockets blew up wedding parties and sandwich shops in faraway lands.” JHK

    Do you believe that those drone attacks intentionally targeted innocent people? I still think that our battles are being fought, overall, and I repeat overall, because of our belief in freedom and Democratic ideals, even though great corporate and individual benefits can result. Yes, Vietnam, Iraq, etc., were huge mistakes, evils perhaps.

    The list of Putin’s victims is there for all to see. He kills to keep power and stifle Democracy. I’ve mentioned the perils of Democracy and the possibility of actually losing what good we strive for because of it. So the big question arises. Should Trump kill like Putin if it were necessary to keep power and preserve his vision of what the nation should be?

    “I imagine it doesn’t exceed two dozen individuals”. Jeez.
    The number of people killed by Putin, although considerable, is not the point. The point is why they were killed. And we know why.

    When Trump praises Duterte, Kim, Erdogan and Putin, is he really praising what he would like to be? Firmly in control, and both feared and worshipped?

    I see the Trump-Putin relationship as highly questionable. No question on Crimea, it’s Russia’s. Hacking, yeah, we all do it.
    And it was great to see the corruption of the Left exposed. So here, “meddling” was a good thing for some of us. What if the tables were turned?

    So Putin is coming over. Why? Smooth out the rumpus? Part of a long term plan for oligarchs to further control the world? Might just be a good time to “smooth” him out, if he has Trump by the proverbials.

    • libertysghost July 20, 2018 at 5:23 pm #

      “I still think that our battles are being fought, overall, and I repeat overall, because of our belief in freedom and Democratic ideals…”

      Really? Pretty romantic take. Is a drone strike on a wedding party even a “battle”? Naaaah. It’s an execution in absentia with an unusual propensity for “collateral damage”…But all in the name of “freedom and democratic ideals” (so I guess that inconvenient JHK point is just wished away with a small dose of American exceptionalism).

      In reality you don’t know why “the US” killed those people or anyone else on any particular occasion (and there have been so many) or why “Putin” killed those he’s accused of…I could certainly see him presenting some flowery euphemisms of justification toward “higher ideals” as you offered in defense of BO…But I don’t have any rational reason to believe either man…why would any attentive adult. That seems to be the point of the comparison.

      And you don’t know why you/we are being told we should be against any peaceful reproach to Russia by all the usual suspects of the MIC statist propagandist cabal either (that sold us “evils perhaps” like Iraq, Vietnam, Libya, etc etc a bit ironically) But I’m sure…this ONE TIME IN THEIR HISTORY…their motives are pure.

      • tucsonspur July 20, 2018 at 7:25 pm #

        Putin killed them to maintain his dictatorship, that’s his higher ideal. Let him present his “flowery euphemisms”, maybe sprayed with some Novichok or polonium.

        I wasn’t defending Obama. Never voted for him and always supported Trump. My concern now is losing the midterms and in 2020. As bad as Obama was, I don’t see him killing innocent people intentionally.

        Do you live in the USA? Freedom and Democratic ideals are what we’re “all” about, and I’m more of a cynic than a romantic. Life is still pretty good over here, and that old MIC whipping boy, with all of its faults, has helped to make it that way and to keep it that way.

        The Trump Putin relationship is certainly questionable, and notions to the contrary can also be easily described as romantic. Right now, I think that at best it’s a power-greed relationship, and at worst that of a puppet and his puppeteer, for whatever reason.

        Did you mean approach or rapprochement?

        National Security means the security of the military industrial complex whose defender is the Deep State [ in other circles it is known as Mystery [ hidden ] Babylon.

        “Mystery Babylon has been able to exercise power through the power of blindness. Blind people are quite helpless, because they must depend upon other people who may do things without the blind person seeing what they are doing. This dependency works in any scenario.

        The degradation of Mystery Babylon is clearly seen by those who are not lawless, those who identify with the New Creation Man. All sin is “normal” to the old man of flesh. The old man is, at first, encrusted with the rules of past religious culture, and for this reason the old man has been restrained in the past. But when government removes those restraints, the old man shows his true colors.

        While Mystery Babylon thinks that lack of restraint is “freedom,” Paul makes it clear that the need and desire to sin is in itself “bondage” (Romans 7:14). True freedom comes only when we no longer are compelled to sin, and when sin does not appeal to us. Sin appeals to the old man, but righteousness is the natural desire of the new man.”

    We woke up on completely different Earth: the first week after Helsinki

    Let’s sum up the first results:

    Perhaps the most important result of this meeting was that the Clintonoids were completely demoralized by it. Trump had trolled them up good both before the meeting, during the meeting and after it, and I had the impression that they did not at all deal with the problems that he had created before.

    And the problems are not small, and under other circumstances, any of them would be enough for the general mobilization of flying monkeys and directing them all to each of these problems.

    1. During the interrogation in Congress of Peter Strzok, in addition to his impudence, it was discovered that the notorious private Bastinda’s server she used for state correspondence was completely open to foreigners and 33 thousand emails that Hillary accidentally erased when the Trey Gaudi commission handed her a subpoena for this server, perhaps they are in their hands. And since this server was serviced by the Pakistanis, which Trump spoke about at a joint press conference, it is possible that ISIS was feeding off the Secretary of State’s server as from its mama tit.

    And the FBI with the insolence of Peter Strok and in his face ignored this circumstance, although then the murder of Ambassador Stevens begins to look like this:

    US Ambassador to Libya Stevens told US Secretary of State Clinton that he was on a secret CIA base in Benghazi and asked for additional security measures, and that she saved this message on her server, which she did not have the right to use as in the word “at all”, then Madam Secretary turned off her phone and went to bed, and while she was sleeping, ISIS downloaded a copy of this message and, learning about the secret base of the CIA, went and killed Ambassador Stevens, who was threatening to inform Obama about the shipment by Bastinda of Gaddafi’s weapons to Syria to those who subsequently became ISIS.

    And this is a chair for damn sure.

    2. Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court, who in the 1990s was the head of the investigation into the “suicide” of Vince Foster, the main figure of a long list of witnesses who could testify about Hillary Clinton, but did not, because they either shot themselves in the back of their heads (very similar to the murder of Ioan Petru Culianu) or jumped out of the skyscraper from sad love.

    3. Before the summit in Helsinki, Trump met with the Queen of England, who, despite numerous violations by Trump of Royal Protocol, looked very pleased after he recommended the British to severely tear ties with the European Union and warned that if they do it gently, they will lose partner in the USA. Having thus killed Gingema, he merrily danced the dance of the falling house on her. He also recommended that they elect or nominate Boris Johnson as prime minister, who may have been a nuisance in the case of the Scripals, but he speaks quite sensibly about Brexit, in the spirit of Trump, speaking on the topic “America, Forward!”

    4. He’s also famously spoken in Brussels at the NATO summit, quite rightly expressing bewilderment by combining the provocative expansion of NATO to the Russian border and the construction of the “North Stream 2”

    5. And he polished this Shabbat with an announcement just before the meeting with Putin that the US relationship with Russia is worse than ever (worse than during the Caribbean crisis?) thanks to the stupid US policy, and right after the meeting, specifying that the primary source of this deterioration is the Mueller investigation.

    The meaning of this tour before the meeting in Helsinki became clear in retrospect after an interview with Tucker Carlson, during which he shocked the Americans, explaining that the US could be destroyed by Russia’s nuclear strike against the US in response to the provocation of “very aggressive” Montenegrins. (and the term World War III Americans understood this way)

    Combining the pieces of this puzzle, Trump voters came to the conclusion (and possibly the voters of Bernie Sanders, too) that Western Europe led by Germany not only provokes a nuclear war, during which Russia’s first retaliatory strike will most likely be dealt to the US, but also does not want to pay for the preparation for this war. Moreover, it uses the saved funds to increase the competitiveness of its industry and to gain unilateral advantages in trade with the United States, which, from the point of view of Americans – and especially the CFN readers – , is the worse crime than provoking the world nuclear war.

    And these reflections reminded Trump that the traditional ally of the USA in the First and Second World Wars was Russia, and the traditional enemy was Germany, which sounded in response to Carlson’s question why Russia is considered an enemy of the United States, and anyone who subjects this thesis to doubt is considered a traitor. And he himself is considered a traitor by the US intelligence community, which instead of informing the president about what is happening in the world in general and in Russia in particular, is trying to overthrow president and sabotages his attempts to establish relations with Russia by indicting Russian officials whose trial is impossible, and they on this basis consider the charges as proven in the court of law.

    Naturally, in this situation, the Trump’s voters began to suspect the US intelligence community is working for the European Union against the US and the voice of these assumptions came when the Senator from Kentucky Rand Paul accused CIA Director Brennan of being the traitor on the grounds that Brennan voted in 1976 for Gus Hall – a candidate from the Communist Party for the presidency of the United States, and in 2018 accused Trump of betraying the Nation.

    Jim; Why are you always defending Russia’s invasion of Ukraine? I guess you’re O.K. with the fact that they also bitten off a piece of Georgia, and would likely walk right in to Poland, the Baltic countries and the rest of Eastern Europe if NATO was not there. Crimea and Ukraine have been under Russian control since the 1700s. So? That would have been the control of the Russian Empire which hasn’t existed for 100 years. It was then under control of The Soviet Union which also no longer exists. So what gives the Russian Federation any right to walk right in, warm water port or no warm water port?
    The fact that you see a moral equivalence between non-combatants accidentally killed in a war on terror, and Putin’s cold-blooded murder is stunning. I don’t know how many people Putin’s had killed but it includes a whole bunch of Russian journalists, even a woman journalists. Wow! Putin’s such a stud. He fishes with no shirt on.
    And don’t forget the former Russian agent who was killed with plutonium who was killed in the U.K. a few years ago. Now there are 2 people fighting for their live after having contact with the residue.

      “The fact that you see a moral equivalence between non-combatants accidentally killed in a war on terror, and Putin’s cold-blooded murder is stunning.” — zekesdad

      This term ‘moral equivalence’ implies a calculation involving both quantitative & qualitative factors. The problem is that no one ever weights those qualitative factors in exactly the same way. And the quantities are subject to factual error or dispute. So this ‘moral equivalence’ argument has to be extremely one-sided for it to have any persuasive power. Like several orders of magnitude difference.

      Thus your attempting to frame this as a ‘moral equivalence’ argument fails. Yes, Putin’s approval of assassinations would have to be ‘cold-blooded’, by definition. But do you believe that the folks planning these drone attacks which kill & maim scores of people at a time don’t understand beforehand that there will be “collateral damage,” as they choose to clinically describe it?

      • tucsonspur July 21, 2018 at 6:13 pm #

        I think that this is a good example of where the more ‘philosophical’ arguments can cloud the issue and distort the actual harsh realities of death and war.

        It’s a war on terror. In war there’s collateral damage, and we can only hope that the people serving are good enough to try and minimize it. Defeating Isis, al-Qaeda, etc., has noble purpose.
        Putin’s ‘noble’ purpose is to shape Russia into what he wants, murdering people that might stand in his way.

        The gigantic difference between the two just can’t be bridged by facile ‘moral equivalency’ arguments. Maybe ‘moral equivalency’ should not have been used here, because there simply is none.

        Putin’s sins should not be sanctified or justified just because he helped Trump.

        • Tate July 21, 2018 at 10:55 pm #

          I agree that a moral equivalency argument can’t be used, but for the same reason it can almost never be used, which is that the values are indeterminate where the differences are of the same order of magnitude. A moral equivalency argument is almost always only of utility in the negative instance, where NO moral equivalency can be found, because the differences are so stark as to be undisputable. 10,000 to 1, for example. (On the other hand, you could adopt the cynicism of comrade Stalin: “A single death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic.”)

          If you want to call this thing a “war on terror,” that’s okay, I have no problem with that, with the minor objection that it may raise unrealistic expectations of “victory” at some certain point. But we should be honest, & call it for what it is, a “war on Islamic terror.” And maybe redefine where we draw the lines of battle. The nations of southern Europe might be a good place to start. Also, remember, when we foment revolutions & strife in MENA, that’s going to come back to haunt us in the form of refugees. As Steve Sailor says, “invade the world, invite the world.” Finally, that drone technology is not exactly ‘unobtanium.’ The Reaper technology being used against the terrorists today is going to be used within North America against us (whoever that “us” turns out to be) sooner than one might like. But you’re right, we have a noble purpose. So that makes it all worth it.

      Dad,
      The issues involve custom and culture. To begin with, there is little morality between countries…so one should not moralize. Borders poorly defined not taking culture into consideration result in internecine warfare that we currently see all over the globe. Minorities in countries that become vocal and active in separatist movements are usually crushed. Consider the separatist movement in the Southern States…Mexico “owned” the land before Texas and New Mexico became states…how would secession work out?

    Another Great Article, Jim.

    A point of interest, the United States remains fixated on Trump while the IRS is now revoking the passports of individuals who owe more than $50,000 in taxes. The IRS does not have to prove a person owes taxes, they can just make it up. The interest and penalties is so severe that many lower middle class people can owe that much. Also, since a passport is proof of citizenship, the IRS can in essence revoke citizenship without proving anything.

    Why isn’t the American Public upset about that?

      I have been filing my own tax returns since I was 17 in 1971. Whenever I had questions or concerns I called the IRS directly and spoke to human beings who were always the most helpful, courteous people I have ever dealt with in government. I suppose I always feared the IRS so much that I made it a point to not declare something or not include some deduction that I was allowed to take. They have always mailed me back with amended returns and checks for the difference. Being part of the government myself, I understand that it is almost totally corrupt and useless, but my experiences with the Internal Revenue Service have been an absolute exception to this fact. For what it is worth.

        Walter B, your experience with IRS has been my experience also, as well as with all the government agencies I have dealt with.

        Government employees have been friendly and efficient and helped me solve my problems. Government was the solution to many of my problems.

        Government employees are just people like us who are engaged in civil service. Some of them are my neighbors whom I know socially outside of their jobs.

        Government of the people, by the people, for the people is not just a platitude spoken by Abraham Lincoln; it has been my pleasant experience in all the government agencies I have dealt with over the decades, regardless of who was president.

          Having worked in both the public & private spheres, I can state that there ain’t that much difference between working in government & working in the corporate environment. In both cases, a pareto law seems to be in effect: 20% of the employees carry 80% of the load, & the other 80% of the employees carry the remaining 20%. It’s very different when you get down to the sole proprietor business model however.

    Disney Studios cut ties with “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn on Friday, shortly after Gunn took responsibility for old, offensive tweets that joked about topics including rape and pedophilia.

    Now, I sit back and await “the usual suspects” of this blog cafe to tell me Gunn never did the things he claims he did in his tweets, because these things can’t possibly happen.

    • GreenAlba July 21, 2018 at 8:41 am #

      Not familiar with this, so just checked. All I can see is that he made some repulsive and generally taboo jokes. I’m not sure what he’s supposed to have ‘done’, apart from telling the repulsive jokes, but presumably if there are ‘things he claims he did’, he’ll be pursued by the justice system. Or are you suggesting that’s not the case?

      youtube.com/watch?v=LGnXtBjn90Q

      In this coverage by Fox News, he specifically says, ‘For the record, when I made these shocking jokes, I wasn’t living them out. I know this is a weird statement to make, and seems obvious, but still, here I am, saying it’.

      So where are his claims that he did these things?

      I don’t know anything about him. He sounds like a creep, at least back when he made the tweets. But I don’t know what either you or he claim(s) he’s actually done.

      Just to be clear, are we using the same standards here as with the ‘pussy grabbing’ tapes? Clearly if he’s suspected of doing something other than telling repulsive jokes he should be be arrested for it, in the same way Trump should have been arrested if he actually did do the pussy grabbing.

      • GreenAlba July 21, 2018 at 8:57 am #

            Unfortunately for this Gunn fellow, there is something called the Wayback machine, I believe. In any event, there are ways that one can go back & recover all the tweets & other social media posts that anyone has ever made. In the Obama years, there was this arrogance among the perverts that they would have free rein forever, & that they could express their real thoughts openly without any chance of blowback, and now they’re panicking as they understand they will not, & cannot, which explains a lot about the lunacy of the Left over Trump, I think.

            Remember what I said about how the pedophiles were frantically trying to cover their tracks & dial back their blatant flaunting of social norms after the Pizzagate fiasco? The Wayback machine will enable the exposure of the more incautious among them. one. at. a. time. I’m sure it’s agonizing for them as the realization dawns.

            Do you remember that I said that the furor would predictably die down among the general public because it wouldn’t hold their attention for very long, EXCEPT FOR DIE-HARD CONSPIRACY FACTUALISTS? Well, it looks like some of those factualists kept digging.

            But just for the sake of argument, let’s assume he’s guilty of nothing more than posting all this filth. That he just has an “edgy” sense of humor. (Still, I believe I read where he had hastily deleted 10,000 of his posts when he recognized he had been caught.) So, no, if that were the case, he couldn’t be prosecuted for criminal activity. But if nothing else, he is guilty of spreading the normalization of pedophilia & deviancy. Of course, that’s not a criminal offense in the U.S. But we need to call out those who promote the behavior, whether they engage in it or not.

    The first week after Helsinki (continuation)

    Naturally, in this situation, Trump’s voters began to suspect the US intelligence community that it is working for the EU against the US, and the Senator from Kentucky Rand Paul gave voice to these suspicions when he accused CIA Director Brennan of betraying on the grounds that Brennan was voting in 1976 for Gus Hall – General Secretary of the Communist Party of the United States and a candidate for the presidency of the United States, and in 2018 accused of treason President Trump.

    Rand Paul is one of the most progressive politicians, the banner of the White Project, but he is a politician, and an outstanding politician with all the pros and cons of this profession. In his first interview, he threw in this thesis, exploiting the prejudices of the Americans against the Communists, and the trick worked, but having managed to attract attention as a politician who defended Trump and the Helsinki summit when he was not defended by anyone, he then deepened the accusations in two directions:

    1. After entering into cooperation with Tucker Carlson after an interview given to him by Trump, he, together with him, exposed Brennan as an extremist who uses the highest admission to secret information to organize leaks, the task of which is to overthrow Trump and even his execution, since treason that is how treason is punished exactly.

    2. Using Gus Hall, he hinted at the connection between the Deep State and the Soviet Communist Party of the times of Gorbachev and the so-called Party Gold, which is very important, since Bill Browder, whose interrogation Putin offered in exchange for interrogating 12 GRU officers of a rather high level, is the grandson of the general secretary of the Communist Party , displaced including by the aforementioned Gus Hall for what later became the theory of convergence of capitalism and socialism = illegal looting and legalization of Soviet gold in the United States.

    americanhistory.oxfordre.com/view/10.1093/acrefore/9780199329175.001.0001/acrefore-9780199329175-e-6

    I must say that the proposal to interrogate Browder and McFaul by the American officers in the presence of Russian and under the oath caused such panic in the camp of Clintonoids that I understood – this is where the body is buried.

    So even Trey Gowdy could not make them nervous – McFaul’s gave interview to PBS with green square eyes like the dress of Hillary Clinton, who appeared on TV and demanded that the US defend its diplomats – of course if they are not in Libya in Benghazi.

    thefederalist.com/2018/07/20/white-house-defend-diplomats-says-hillary-clinton-let-four-u-s-diplomat…

    It went so far that she raised the question of the inadmissibility of the moral equivalence of interrogation by Russians and the interrogation of Russians by Americans, and this is the quintessence of the theory of Colored Projects.

    In this connection, I want to say that when the dispute between Hillary and Trump about the moral equivalence between Russia and the United States was only just beginning during the primaries of 2016, she mentioned this topic and immediately led this dispute aside, clearly fearing it splashing out to the wide screen.

    And I came to the conclusion that Trump, in order to make America First have to still make her publicly repent of the Cold War and what happened after the “victory” of the United States in the Cold War.

    True Trump will certainly be glad to sweep the garbage under the carpet, so as not to disgrace America, but for this he will have to make a deal with Hillary, who played an outstanding role in this, and she will deceive him, and this deceit will cause him to scavenge the garb from under that carpet and expose its for everyone to see.

    And to a large extent it happened yesterday.

    Trump wants to end not only the Korean, but also the Cold War, which, according to Putin, has never ended, and there can be no doubt that he explained this to Trump in Helsinki.

    But the above suggestions by Trump only loosened the ground for discussion, and was planted by Putin or, rather, Putin’s Russia, testing and reporting on the transfer of the newest weapons systems to the troops, which Putin told the Federal Assembly on March 1, making me write about surrender.

    And it’s time to write the long-promised post on the military strategic balance and how it changed on March 1, 2018. For now, I want to draw your attention to the fact that the Americans were instilled for decades, that the United States has long acquired the absolute lead in the military strategic sphere and now reports about the testing of the newest weapons systems prepare the soil on which the flowers of the peace and US repentance in the Cold War will grow.

  48. FincaInTheMountains July 21, 2018 at 10:27 am #

    There are rumors that the Army warned that in this case of Trump’s assassination it would take power, declare martial law and shoot all the guilty according to the laws of wartime.

    It looks to me that the wrong-doing during the 2016 election run-up was on the Democrat side, aided and abetted by Deep State organs whose motto was “Trump can not rule, Trump must not rule.”

    It would be redundant to do yet another run-through of the misdeeds in aid of electing Hillary. If people are unaware of them, then they haven’t been listening.

    Same with this preposterous Russia collusion investigation. Since there’s an abundance of evidence of Democrats colluding with Russians but none of Republicans colluding, the story morphed into Russian meddling.

    And the government legal work on this was so pathetic that one of the companies alleged to have aided this meddling hasn’t run away from the charges but rather demanded to see the evidence against it, which Mueller and his boys have not provided. It appears that the company in question wasn’t even in existence at the time of the supposed misdeeds. This is way beyond farce.

    Green Alba, from your link,

    The head of the Secret Intelligence Service also described the scale of the terrorist threat to the UK as “unprecedented”.

    —Blow back? Jihad?

    • GreenAlba July 21, 2018 at 12:06 pm #

      Perhaps it felt ‘unprecedented’ in 2016, when the article was written – and specifically to the quoted Andrew Parker, the DG of MI5, who joined the organisation in 1983), but it as an odd thing to say, given the experience with the IRA, which claimed many more lives.

      Statistics for the UK here:

      telegraph.co.uk/news/0/many-people-killed-terrorist-attacks-uk/

      You obviously have no awareness of 70s UK. Fortunately we didn’t decide to send all Irish people back to Ireland. There were rather a lot of very peaceable ones who’d been living here for generations.

      Mr Parker seems to like the word ‘unprecedented’. He used it in the article I mistakenly linked to as well, but this time in relation to the risk from Putin.

      “Blow back? Jihad?”

      This isn’t a coherent question, but I’ll have a go at it anyway and suggest that both ISIS attacks and IRA attacks were ‘blowback’ from colonialism and neo-colonialism.

          It is a bit of a paradox, a few mistakes indicates a lot of effort but too many shows a lack of effort. Revising introduces new errors which is why they don’t all ever seem to go away.

            I know – it’s a pain. There’s often a decision to be made as to whether the correction will draw more attention to an error than the error itself. And, yes, the Hydra effect of culling one and generating more is annoying.

  51. Tate July 21, 2018 at 11:23 am #

    “…the type of men in leadership of a society are a reflection of the political culture. At the Founding, the political class of the American colonies was fertile ground. Even adjusting for two plus centuries of propaganda, the men that birthed America were extraordinary in quality and quantity. One or two great minds makes for a special generation of men. The 18th century colonial political class produced many great minds, indicating an amazingly fertile political soil at the time.
    On the other side of this, during the same period, is the French aristocracy. One of the remarkable things about that period is that the political class had no able men. The history of the French Revolution is the story of one missed opportunity after another to reform and respond to the changes sweeping the country. All the famous names from that period are from well outside the political elite. The only reason anyone remembers Marie Antoinette is she lost her head over remarks attributed to her that she most likely never said.
    Anyway, this comes to mind when seeing a story like this one.
    Conservatives should “fight back” against the alt-right and white nationalists, and do a better job reclaiming classic terms to stamp out identity politics, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said on Thursday.

    “We have to go back and fight for our ground and re-win these ideas and marginalize these guys the best we can to the corners,” Ryan said. “Do everything you can to defeat it.”
    Ryan made the comments in conversation with National Review senior editor Jonah Goldberg. The two conservatives spoke at an event hosted by the American Enterprise Institute. Ryan had harsh words for the alt-right, an umbrella term for extreme right-wing individuals who reject mainstream conservatism and often embrace racism and white supremacy.
    “That is not conservatism. That is racism. That is nationalism. That is not what we believe in. That is not the founding vision, that is not the founders’ creed,” Ryan said.

    That goes beyond stupid. It is offensively stupid. Even today, grammar school civics lessons make clear that the Founders were crafting a new nation. The entirely of the founding myth is based on “creating a new nation in the wildness.” The Founders were so nationalistic, they even wrote it into the preamble of the Constitution.

    We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

    That is the very essence of nationalism. Now, Paul Ryan is entering that phase [where he] is now unburdened from the need to lie about his true opinions, so he is speaking his mind, what little there is of it. That just underscores the fact that this feckless airhead is the best the current political class has been able to produce.
    Ryan is not an isolated example. His predecessor was a raging alcoholic who would burst into tears at public events. Before him we had Nancy Pelosi, a women on so many psychiatric drugs she rattles when she walks. Look around at the elected officials and it is hard to find someone you would trust to run the second shift at a convenience store. Our political culture is not just a garden overrun with weeds. The weeds took over a long time ago and now there is nothing but weeds. It produces no men of merit.
    It is not just a consequence of democracy. Take a look at the conspirators involved in the sedition scandal. Former CIA Director John Brennan, who helped form the conspiracy, is a former communist. He supported the Communist Party candidate in the 1976 election and it was not an act of protest. He was an actual communist. Today he is an unhinged fanatic who goes on social media demanding a military coup against the President. Again, this man was the head of the CIA under Obama. The CIA. How is this even possible?
    It does not just stop there. Look at the “intellectual” side of the ruling culture. Paul Ryan gave that interview to Jonah Goldberg, who is waddling around with the title “Senior Fellow” at what is supposed to be a prestigious think tank. Probably the most famous public intellectual in the academy right now is Steven Pinker, who is prone to the most basic logical fallacies. The American college campus is a doctrinaire breeding ground for narrow minded fanatics hellbent on pulling the roof down on Western Civilization.
    The political culture of a society can break off from the general culture or even start as an alien over class, as in the case of invasion. The French political class in the 18th century was so divorced from the rest of the kingdom, they as well have been foreigners. The Russian political class, what little there was of of it at the end of the 19th century, was wholly disconnected from the culture of the Russian Empire. There’s certainly a strong whiff of that in present day America. Our rulers are nothing like us now.
    Even so, whatever the source material for the current ruling elite, what it is producing is of such poor quality, it suggest a very bad end. Donald Trump is our guy, but let’s face it, he should not be President. If he is what is necessary to prevent the country’s political class from strangling the rest of us through staggering idiocy, it is past time to think weeding the garden is enough. This garden of idiots is beyond the point where a good dose of weed killer will work. It’s time to plow it under and salt the earth, starting fresh elsewhere.”

      If someone is going to talk about 18th century France and all they talk about is the aristocracy, (the Second Estate), without mentioning the church, (the First Estate), they are stuck on themselves, riding the roller coaster of their brain folds for their own amusements. Up and down back and forth, their mental wank flattens all facts. Truth matters less than the masturbatory jerk their ego savors as they bump through the land of words. Unfiltered raw thought, It is an insult to endure such thought without the author thinking hard first about if their thoughts make sense.

      It is sort of funny that a K-Dog would find a Z-Man to be full of himself and find his putting on of the A (alpha)-Dog insufferable.

        The first paragraph was not printed here.

        It is axiomatic that the political class of a society is a reflection of the culture. That culture is what grows out of the biology of the people, but there is an interplay between culture and biology. The ethnic differences between Swedes and Danes, or even Swedes and Prussians, are trivial, at least in the purely biological sense, but, the culture of Swedes, Danes and Prussians are different in important ways. For that matter, the culture that produced The Lion of the North was very different from that of modern Sweden.

    The Resistance and the Deep State are going ape-shit because of the election of one so obviously not cut out to be president but who nonetheless had the common sense to call bullshit on unworkable arrangements that the Resistance and Deep State are so invested in that they can’t do anything but defend them.

    It goes without saying that this Resistance and its Deep State backers both benefit individually and collectively from said arrangements.

    As Pat Buchanan said not so long ago, the returns are in and the electorate got it right, the situation is past salvaging and the passage of time won’t make things better.

    Tuesday marked the 100th anniversary of the gruesome murders of the Romanov family, Nicholas II, his wife, and their five children, four daughters & a 12-year old son.

    To commemorate the event, many thousands of Russians marched by candlelight the 13 miles from where the deed was done to the site where the bodies were stripped & mutilated to prevent recognition, and then dumped in a pit & unceremoniously buried.

    Say what you like about Putin, he’s not Lenin—the first and worst of the twentieth century’s evil political geniuses, from whom all the others learned their methods.

      May 8th, 1887 marked the 131st anniversary of the execution of Aleksandr Ilyich Ulyanov, Lenin’s brother.

      To commemorate the event Lenin had the royal family murdered on the night of July 16/17 in 1918

      And around the old stones of Lenin’s tomb beneath the crystal glass of the coffin shround sometimes it is said a visitor could hear:

      You do my brother and I do you. That makes me a monster how?

      Words heard whispered with the bell clarity. Heard in whatever was the visitors native tongue.

        Fie fool! You know nothing.

        The life of a commoner is as nothing compared to the life of a czar. (Here’s where moral equivalency indeed comes into play, tuscon, if you’re reading.)

        To assure the survival of the state, sometimes many must die. Even in the western democracies, this is true.

        10,000 to 1? 100,000 to 1? 1,000,000 to 1?

        First ask, how big is the realm?

        On the life of the czar/king/kaiser/president depends the well-being, sometimes the very survival of the state.

If someone were to kill my brother I’d crawl out of the grave for vengeance and I’d get it. If I had to crawl out of the grave every day for 1000 years I’d get it. That is what a normal ‘commoner’ would do.

    About balls and pension reform

    The essence of the pension reform is what Putin did not speak about and is unlikely to speak in the near future – namely, his struggle for power with the group that gathered around Medvedev, as members of this group keep not only their money, but also their balls in the West, and not just in the West, but in the Clinton West.

    And even if Trump cuts off those hands that are currently squeezing these balls, it’s still not a fact that he will not use them as before, but for other purposes. And even if the balls can be returned closer to the owners, the main problem is not in the balls, but in the fact that their owners during this time have become traitors, and the traitor with balls, or without anyway is a traitor.

    And it’s not a matter of who is the beneficiary of the betrayal, but who is being betrayed, and traitors will always find whom to betray you to, my dear compatriots.

    Yeah, that did not turned out the way I expected, but I do not feel sorry. I’ll try again.

          The territory of historical Russia is a long and convoluted tale and in it are the story of many peoples. The size and shape changed many times over centuries. You know the original capital was Kiev and that is in the Ukraine and not the Federation.

    The Doctor’s Plot, American Style?

    Killing of cardiologist who treated President George H.W. Bush robs us of a great healer

    The shooting death of prominent Houston interventional cardiologist Dr. Mark Hausknecht – who treated former President George H.W. Bush years ago for an irregular heartbeat and who prolonged and saved many lives during his long career – deprives patients of a skilled and caring healer.

    foxnews.com/opinion/2018/07/22/dr-marc-siegel-killing-cardiologist-who-treated-president-george-h-w-…

    The Soviet Union was the Union of the Orthodox Russian people, Joseph Stalin and the world Jewry of the Third International.

    And it was destroyed by the Doctors Plot, which finished the union of historical Russia and world Jewry, as a result of which aging Stalin found himself without qualified medical assistance.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctors%27_plot

    Apparently Stalin was going to create some kind of Orthodox International instead of the Third International, but since he died without leaving the heir to these plans, and Nikita Khrushchov understood communism as an opportunity to eat without restrictions, then after the coup d’etat he organized in 1953 the USSR turned out to be a torso without a head.

    And one of the main points of Khrushchev’s “de-Stalinization and exposure of the cult of personality” was the criticism of support by the Stalinists of the Orthodox Church.

    Khrushchev’s persecution of the Church did not allow Orthodoxy to articulate a historiosophy, corresponding to the situation of the late USSR, which could serve as a plan for bringing historical Russia out of the abyss of ideological nihilism, in which it appeared after the Stalin’s death.

    I believe that Stalin was an extremely cruel and insidious politician whose conscience has a lot of crimes and innumerable lives ruined, but it was not he who unleashed the flywheel of violence, but Lenin, Trotsky and the Narodovoltsy, the Left Socialist-Revolutionaries, Kolchak, Shkuro, and other heroes of the White Movement.

    But the greatest responsibility for unleashing a terrible civil war in Russia, after which were inevitable in the words of Solzhenitsyn the Gulag and the “Red Wheel” lies on the Czechoslovak Legion.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolt_of_the_Czechoslovak_Legion

    At the same time, it seems obvious to me that in 1941, having suffered a complete collapse as the leader of the communist state, Stalin repented in some sense of his crimes and, in an absolutely hopeless situation, rushed to God, and did not hang himself on an aspen, like Judas.

    Which, of course, does not make him a saint, and when the immediate danger has passed, he again returned to his wickedness, for which he had to pay with the Kharkov catastrophe.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Battle_of_Kharkov

    But in 1943, his repentance and awareness of the mistakes were much deeper.

    How deep I can not judge, but his open and official support of the Orthodox Church was obvious and speaks for itself, including explaining the further course of military operations.

    In addition, Stalin was neither an anti-Semite nor a Russian nationalist, in the sense in which he is described by Kozhinov

    And the state of Israel was created by Stalin, and not only to frustrate Churchill, but also because he understood the symbolic significance of this step because of his education. And without him no Israel would have existed. And I know this quite accurately, because some of my relatives, on the instructions of Stalin, created Israel already in 1943.

    And his disappointment in Zionism and in Soviet Jews, especially in the wives of his closest associates, was political in nature, and not at all anti-Semitic. And it was not Stalin who initiated the doctors’ plot, but the doctors’ plot was initiated with the goal of destroying both Stalin and the Soviet Union.

    ” Do you deny that the hardcore Left is composed of 1) the unassimilated ethnics 2) the sexual deviants & 3) the privileged misfits? ”

    i would deny it.

    — in a manner of speaking.

    ” unassimilated ethnics ”

    George Washington , Thomas Jefferson , and John Adams were British subjects , and not bottom -of -the -ladder British subjects , but exceptionally privileged British subjects.

    They had the very least to bitch about, not the most to bitch about.

    So I guess they were unassimilated ethnics ?

    After that , as I have pointed out here before , the U.S. government has a long and consistent record of screwing those folks who used to be the natives / majority , and using folks who just got off the boat as a political weapon.

    given this , it is rather hard to say who the unassimilated ethnics are.

    ” the sexual deviants ”

    I remember Vice president Dan Quayle once tried to point out that at least one in three children who were products of divorce were subsequently raised in poverty .

    the resulting hue and cry from heterosexuals drowned him out in all of 48 hours.

    i have pointed out here before that anyone who winks at divorce and promiscuity has , by default , endorsed sexual deviancy whether they admit it or not.

    You cannot have your orgy and keep it to yourself too.

    Lastly , I suspect most sexual deviants do NOT want to march in parades , and do NOT want to sic the Gestapo on their neighbor .

    The sort of people who DO want to march in parades , and DO want to sic the Gestapo on their neighbor are examples of an entirely different vice ,

    What vice would that be ?

    Rape isn’t about sex , it’s about control.

    Also , the sort of people who DO want to march in parades , and DO want to sic the Gestapo on their neighbor ,

    Almost never claim to speak or to act just for themselves , but claim to represent whole groups of people , though it is rather obvious that they do not even know the vast majority of those people individually.

    ” the privileged misfits ”

    Leave off , “misfits ” and I would agree wholeheartedly.

    From Martin Luther to Robespierre , from John Adams to Lenin , it is really hard to find a revolutionary who seriously had to worry about paying the grocery bill next week.

    • Tate July 21, 2018 at 11:36 pm #

      Well, you see, the founding fathers fall into none of those categories because they were not Leftists. They were on the Right, protecting their chartered liberties from the rapacious innovations of the British crown.

      I can’t really follow any logical thread in what you’re saying about the “sexual deviants.” Of course, I agree that rape is horrible. It should be punished harshly. I’m writing a monograph on bringing back the death penalty. I hope it meets with your approval when I release it here.

      The “privileged misfits” is an interesting category. They are largely composed of what is sometimes known as ‘remittance men,’ otherwise known as ‘trust fund babies. But this is a heterogenous category which includes others as well, so I’ll discuss it at some other time.

            No, a characteristically facile evasion, as always. Why should anyone expect anything better from you? How does ‘etc.’ comprehend that little word ‘as’ at the beginning of the phrase, which carries so much of the meaning but which you so conveniently overlook? And of course, the ‘compared to,’ which you choose to collapse into ‘etc’ carries so much more that the entire meaning is lost & replaced with another when they are removed that one can only conclude that these dependable sophistries of the ‘doctor’s wife’ from Scotland bear the hallmark of something else.

        The ‘privileged misfits’ are essentially a subset of the children of the upper class. In an egalitarian society, they are made to feel guilty because of their privileged status. Of course, if they feel they deserve their privileged status (& some do deserve it), they will feel no guilt about possessing it. But there will always be a large subset of this class who do not feel worthy, hence the guilt.

        As a gap widens in an egalitarian society — for whatever the reasons — between the haves and the have-nots, this internal discord only becomes sharper. A class structure that is not in keeping with the prevailing orthodoxy of egalitarianism cannot endure.

        • Tate July 22, 2018 at 3:41 pm #

          I should add that egalitarianism itself is the thing that won’t endure as the end game. The class structure will survive.

        • Tate July 22, 2018 at 4:32 pm #

          One could even replace the term ‘privileged misfits’ by the equally descriptive & succinct term “the Guilty.’ That is the essence of the third party to the drama of cultural subversion on the Left, the shared sense of guilt. That is how they identify themselves, it is central to their existence.

        You’re veering into Libertarianism. Sad. Monarchy is ancient and venerable. Edmund Burke is the Man who keeps it all in balance. Basically his Conservatism is the template for Fascism (without using the word, We don’t have to use the word) in the Anglo-Sphere. A Nation is not an Economy. We’ve reached the point where Economies have Nations instead of the Nations having Economies – an inversion of the natural order.

        Libertarian anthropology is false (Locke, Hobbes, Smith, etc) Men did not choose to come together for mutual profit. All that came later. Men were always together as Man is a group creature. For some reason, a mysterious uprising of Eros, the Life Force, they chose to create greater Societies. But Cult is first and foremost, the root of Culture. Only after those two, does Profit even get a hearing. Remember the Castes: Brahmins, Ksyatrias, Vaisyas, and Sudras. Libertarianism, or rule by the Vaisya-Merchants, is a low form of Culture and Life. Also called Plutocracy. They have cunningly used Communism, or promised rule by the Sudras or Workers, to overthrow higher forms of Life and Culture, as guided by the High Men of the Brahmin and Ksyatrias Castes.

        • Tate July 22, 2018 at 3:52 pm #

          Good comment, Janos, although I don’t know what you mean about Eros being the reason men chose to create greater societies.

          If your criticism refers to my reply on the founding fathers, here’s my defense:

          The chartered liberties of the colonists were originally granted to them by the British Crown. The then-current occupant of that throne had no right to arbitrarily take those liberties away from them. Monarchy is all well & good, but not absolute monarchy. The colonists rejected that as no better than “oriental despotism.” I reject it too.

          • Tate July 22, 2018 at 3:57 pm #

            And if you say that what the Crown had given, it could just as easily take away, I also reject that. This was a compact, a quid pro quo. The colonists agreed to come to the New World & build prosperous communities, braving the dangers of the sea passage & of the harsh living conditions on the frontier in return for their chartered liberties. These could not be so easily taken away once they had fulfilled their end of the bargain.

          • Janos Skorenzy July 22, 2018 at 5:26 pm #

            Well why do they then? Why not eat, drink, fuck, and then sleep? Why does man want to do more than the animals? The Life Force lifts up and desires to raise them up back to its own source (God). Sex is just its lower manifestation. Sex attraction alone was called porneia by the Greeks. Eros is far more than that, involving falling in love and the labors of civilization.

            I agree with you. I recently read Alexander the Great killed some of his brothers when he went back home. On the whole, he was characterized by an Oriental Lust for absolute power, rejecting the ancient “first among equals” (among the nobles) that was the mark of European nobility.

      Well said, Kesa,

      Lenin and Marx were, euphemistically, “of the manor born”…the wealthy in the US, and the unworthy heirs and assigns of the wealthy, seem to walk in lock-step in their utopian fantasies…a serious dearth of “realpolitik”… that which is most easily obtained through adversity, is evident. The majority of the denizens of the left might fall into three categories;

      1) Youth

      2) The ignorant (see number 1)

      3) People who, in your words, never had to worry about paying the grocery bill.

      I have, at various times, been in all three groups but avoided long term damage by being raised in a military family, and travelling and living in different countries/cultures.

      A former member of our “discussion group” once opined that any culture is like a living organism, and racism is like an immune system for the culture. For the culture to be healthy, and remain so, external threats must be confronted….

      All humans respond as above as a response to those counter cultural stimuli…consider the ’60’s;

      Long hair
      Free love
      Free speech movement
      Racial integration
      Hippies
      Civil disobedience
      Dope

      All humans are born with an innate fear of the “different” and unknown. It is a defense mechanism, and is part of the human condition. A life of education mitigates, to some extent, how one reacts to these fears…but the next generation begins anew.

        So when my grandson (6) has white friends and brown friends at school, is he secretly scared of the brown ones, even though he’s never mentioned this or even the fact that they’re brown? He just refers to them by their names.

          • Tate July 22, 2018 at 4:34 pm #

            Psychologists have conducted experiments where they have determined that even 6-month old infants recognize differences in race. It doesn’t have to be verbal.

            Six-year-olds recognise spiders too, Tate.

            But they’re not scared of them until someone stands behind them and shrieks when they see one.

          • Tate July 23, 2018 at 12:45 pm #

            Actually, they are. Snakes too. Some things are hard-wired from the earliest. So many findings of modern science refute the notion of tabula rasa. And babies not only recognize race, they instinctively show a preference to their own kind.

          It is part of the process of education…initial angst mitigated through direct experience, observation and input from parents and teachers.

          This is why neighborhoods, tribes and nations exist. Globalization is just another Utopian scheme, doomed to failure as certainly as was Communism, as they would deny human traits that are hardwired, and cannot be changed to a thousand generations of unborn. You can teach humans to be civilized, but you cannot change the innate instincts of the animal.

            When government gets that big it has ZERO democratic legitimacy. It is an Empire. An Empire only exists as an instrument for an oligarchic condition. An oligarchic condition is fundamentally inhuman because its only means for survival is to implement artificial political stratification and a system of theft/slavery along with lying propaganda to maintain such. In effect, an oligarchic condition forces on its subjected population a condition of deliberate ignorance via lying propaganda (eg. Roman Christian Feudalism/Monarchy, Lying Gov Mafia Media) and/or cultural and chemical poisoning (eg. Multiculturalism, Debased Weaponised Culture like Feminism Racism Homosexually, Poison Phood/Drugs) to secure economic and political slavery so as to maintain this oligarchic condition. There is no other way for the oligarchic condition to survive natural rebellion and disintegration.

            As such it is a grotesque and disgustingly inhuman condition.

    Richard Prum has an interesting book out titled “The Evolution of Beauty”. It has a lot good stuff about duck penises and vaginas (really), describing the intriguing nature of their construction, spiral or corkscrew like, with turns of different directionality in the male and female. Huge penises in the male. Who knew?

    The whole Darwinian thing is there, natural selection, adaptation, etc., but Prum investigates the idea of aesthetic selection and its influence on evolution. Humans are included.

    Get a taste here:

    • tucsonspur July 22, 2018 at 5:00 am #

      Here’s a bit more from the NYT:

      And so things largely remained until now. This summer, however, almost 150 years after Darwin published his sexual selection theory to mixed reception, Richard Prum, a mild-mannered ornithologist and museum curator from Yale, has published a book intended to win Darwin’s sex theory a more climactic victory. With THE EVOLUTION OF BEAUTY (Doubleday, $30), Prum, drawing on decades of study, hundreds of papers, and a lively, literate, and mischievous mind, means to prove an enriched version of Darwin’s sexual selection theory and rescue evolutionary biology from its “tedious and limiting adaptationist insistence on the ubiquitous power of natural selection.” He feels this insistence has given humankind an impoverished, even corrupted view of evolution in general, and in particular of how evolution has shaped sexual relations and human culture.

      As Prum knows, he’s in for a fight. The biologists who most militantly defend the adaptationist Darwinian view of evolution, such as Richard Dawkins, do not gladly suffer dissent. But true to his argument, Prum seeks to prevail less through brute force of attack than by making his case with clarity, grace and charm. Like a bowerbird arranging its display for potential mates, he seeks not to best his chesty, chattering rivals, but to persuade the open-minded. The result is a delicious read, both seductive and mutinous.

    About the Pension Reform in Russia

    As I wrote in the previous post, pension reform is about the struggle for power, and Medvedev, in addition to being Prime Minister, is also the head of United Russia party, which has a constitutional majority in Parliament (Duma), as well as the head of the party of traitors, and in this capacity the head of the colonial administration.

    Which does not prevent the majority of Russians from considering Putin an absolute monarch, but it rather reflects their idea about how the government should be organized in Russia, than how it really is arranged.

    So, taking into account the above, pension reform is also an attempt to provoke unrest and direct it against Putin and the World Cup in Russia. It is directed by those who are well aware of the tragic contradiction between the Russian idea of how the power in Russia should be arranged and how it is actually arranged.

    Similarly in February 2015 they by affectionately, but painfully squeezing Dorkovichi’s balls forced him to cancel the suburban electric trains – a very popular, cheap and effective way of transportation in Russia.

    I do not even rule out that on September 7, 2011 they quite deliberately provided such a turnout to the Yaroslavl political forum that the Zbigniew Brzezinski’s plane was parked on the runway and the Yak-42 with the hockey team Lokomotiv did not have enough space for taking off.
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lokomotiv_Yaroslavl_plane_crash

    Meanwhile, if President Medvedev did not support the nomination of Prime Minister Putin for the 2012 presidential election on September 24, 2011, the latter would have to become self-nominated and collect 2 million signatures – this alone explains a lot in the pension reform of 2018.

    These attempts will not stop until the organizers start to fear for their own safety and impudent smiles will not be wiped out from their faces. And now they are acting with impunity, despite the opinion of Putin and Trump.

    The fact of the matter is that the pension reform is a theory of Colored Projects in a chemically pure form, and I will allow myself to quote entirely the passage from the old post where I write about how it turned out to be the most perplexing, despite its apparent obviousness.

    Both White and Black, and, most interestingly, Red project argue that Humanity is divided into two (or more) biological species, but representatives of the White project believe that representatives of the upper class (species) = the bourgeoisie should relate to representatives of the lower classes (species) as their pets and treat them well, to see that they are fed and healthy, and the Black project believes that representatives of the upper class should treat the representatives of the lower classes as dirt under their feet and, if necessary, kill them simply for lack of utility to the upper class, since good treatment of them corrupts both the higher and lower classes and leads to betrayal of its biological species, that is, to the Red project, whose representatives believe that all is upside down and the representatives of the upper class have actually degenerated and at the top of society are hereditary robbers and parasites unable to feed themselves by their labor and forced to survive by exploiting the normal people. Because of this, the bourgeoisie must be destroyed as a pest that has fallen out of the biocenosis of the Humanity and the environment (Nature).

    By the way, it turned out that the best way the fight of Black and White project in Russia is illustrated by Bekmambetov’s films “Night Watch” and “Day Watch”, and the essence of the Red project by Tarantino’s “Kill Bill”.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_Watch_(2004_film)

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Day_Watch_(film)

    This is due to the fact that Russia is an Orthodox Christian country and Russian culture is an Orthodox culture, even for those who do not accept Orthodoxy.

    And Orthodoxy does not accept the concept of the division of mankind into two species, because this concept destroys another concept: “For the Son of God became man so that we might become God”, formulated by Athanasius of Alexandria

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Divinization_(Christian)

    The question arises as to which of the mankind is involved. Therefore, a much more adequate reference is to the “Ivanhoe” by Walter Scott who was well versed in this matters, does not explain anything to Russians, at least to those who have no experience of survival in the West and live by the ideas of Lev Gumilev.

    In general, Colored Projects is a very specific thing incomprehensible to 90% of humanity, but in fact sitting in the collective unconscious of almost every Western European.

    to be continued …

    About the Pension Reform in Russia

    The government of Medvedev as the colonial administration of the West and the party of traitors (sleepers) in this theory of Colored Projects is included as a functional element and what they think about it does not bother neither their masters nor their victims.

    In particular, Navalny’s attack on Medvedev is the dog-command “Dimon, by the foot!”, and the pension reform is the same Gaidar’s answer “They will die!” to the question what will happen to old people in view of his reforms, which Gaidar also did not come up on his own, but it was planted in his head at the seminars of the Institute of System Analysis of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

    All this verbiage about the number of workers and the number of pensioners is nothing more than a cover story for the fact that most of the men simply will not live to retirement.

    And Putin, by the way, spoke about this several times, after which there were all sorts of revolutions of Furry Coats and other murders of various Nemtsovs. By the way, after the introduction of sanctions and the successful rearmament of the army in 5 years, which Putin spoke at the congress of the United Russia in 2012, after giving the leadership of this institution to Medvedev, the recommendations of the IMF could be safely ignored with a vengeance. And the IMF knows it, so it was not the IMF that gave the Medvedev the order to start the pension reform.

    So it is not a question of demography, but of a model of economics and economic theory, to which millions of people and a country like the USSR were deliberately sacrificed as to some idols.

    In Marxism there is such a thing as the “General Crisis of Capitalism,” which helped to stabilize capitalism in the 1930s, but when the mechanism of this stabilization began to work, the scientific significance of John Keynes’ theory, in particular its connection with Marxism and theory of Academician Varga, was forgotten, and now imperceptibly, at the very end on the thin legs the World Economic Crisis has crept up.

    For example, do you know how Obama stopped the global economic crisis of 2008? According to classic Keynesianism, the Great Depression stemmed from a lack of liquidity, and Obama, apparently well-educated at school, began to pump up the economy with money, freshly printed dollars.

    But banks grabbed money and sat on them, deadening at least $3 trillion in this way, and only after Obama, under any pretext, began to pump up the production of the printing press at the base of the economic pyramid, in infrastructure for the poor, in unemployment benefits, in medical insurance, in food stamps and sic! in retirement, the economy and the Dow Jones have started working again. It is White Project in its pure form. But the followers of the Black Project in Russia do not care about that, as well as to the reasons for the economic success of Trump, who does something direct opposite to it precisely because of Obama’s success.

    Blacks have their own agenda, which is connected to reality with other threads and another modification, or rather, with the distortion of the scientific method that created the current demographic and the crisis of the pension system, having killed 15 million Russian citizens in the mother’s womb, and now wants to improve the situation by killing another 10 million.

    Do you know what will happen if it succeeds? Retired pensioners who have not become pensioners will stop buying food and the barely revived Russian food production will lose the financing that it urgently needs to compete with West European “farmers” like Monsanto who receive subsidies from the European Union, unlike Russian farmers without quotes who receive your know what from the Russian state.

    And this will be timed just to the lifting of sanctions, when all this genetically modified crap at dumping prices will pour into Russia.

    Do I need to continue or you’ll guess yourself? And money for pensioners can simply be printed and the economic effect of the development of agriculture and the food industry will devour inflation in full accordance with the classical economic theory, of which I am a supporter.

    I’m not saying that grandparents help raise grandchildren and improve the overall demographic situation.

    A social reconciliation after the battles of the 90s, when Putin was going to provide a special tax and compensation to victims of privatization. Do you know how all this shobla growled at him when he spoke about it?! Almost began to threaten with a riot of well-armed popular masses!

    As I said, the economic block of the Russian government has its own agenda. What sort of reconciliation is there, what are the compensations, when the latter is taken away and they gloat about in what condition are people in Russia in their 60s after Gaidar’s “shock therapy”.

    And in what condition in 20 years will be the grandchildren of these pensioners after the era of sanctions and the fall of the ruble in half. They do not even care what happens to them when they bring the case to a social explosion, which in their opinion should sweep Putin away.

    They are just a Black Project in chemically pure form, that’s all.

    I am surprised, Jim, that you subscribe to the notion that Putin kills his political opponents. I feel pretty comfortable with the notion that the “authoritative list” of his victims does not exist simply because he is not “that type of a guy”. I am persuaded that he uses his brains rather than murder to intimidate his would be challengers. After all he was in the “charmer department” of the KGB, not the one known popularly in Moscow as “mokrye dela” (“wet affairs”). You hear nonsense about his ordering hits on Litvinenko, Politkovskaya, Magnitsky, Nemtsov, and the botched ones on Kara-Murza and the Skripals. In Russia, they would be laughed off by most people (although you have to remember that many Russians by nature are drawn to conspiracy theories). I don’t know anyone – anti-Putin characters included (if they are not totally corrupt) who would dwell on that kind of nonsense. It is not that I doubt that is tough and would hesitate to do someone in if “necessary”. But he has been comfortable and has no need to resort to ugly deeds, least of all on people who do not in any way represent the remotest danger to his personal power. The only real challenge to him during the last eighteen years was Khodorkovsky, who had the means and made real trouble. Putin got him clean and by legal means dismantling his empire for large scale tax evasion. He could have easily arranged for him to be put away for life for the murder of the mayor of Nefteyugansk perpetrated by the chief of his security in the 1990’s. But that did not happen. Khodorkovsky was let go after ten years and lives now in the West, still plotting – to no avail. That’s real power. For the rest, you may want to do some reading before going begging for an “authoritative list” of Putin’s victims. BTW, love your blog.

      “You hear nonsense about his ordering hits…” –soloview

      Yet Putin’s opponents, even journalists who do not tow the line, do end up dead. Putin is not powerful. He is a coward who uses contract killers:

      Vladmir Kara-Murza’s wife Evgenia is certain he was targeted for his role in convincing the US to impose sanctions on Russian officials over the 2009 death of another vocal opponent of Russian President Vladimir Putin – Sergei Magnitsky.

      Boris Yefimovich Nemtsov was a Russian physicist, statesman and liberal politician opposed to the Putin Government.

      Boris Berezovsky was a Russian billionaire who fled to Britain after falling out with Putin. He was found dead inside a locked bathroom at his Berkshire home.

      Human rights lawyer Stanislav Markelov represented journalists (including murdered reporter Anna Anna Politkovskaya) who found themselves in hot water after writing articles critical of Mr Putin. Journalist Anastasia Baburova, who was walking with him, was gunned down as she tried to help him.

      Lawyer Sergei Magnitsky died in police custody after he was subjected to a brutal beating and then denied medical treatment.

      Natalia Estemirova was a journalist who sometimes worked with Anna Politkovskaya (who was also assassinated). She specialised in uncovering human rights abuses carried out by the Russian state in Chechnya. Estemirova was kidnapped outside her home before being shot in the head and dumped in nearby woodland.

      Anna Politkovskaya was a Russian journalist who was critical of Putin, accusing him of turning his country into a police state in her book Putin’s Russia. She was murdered by contract killers who shot her at point blank range in an elevator in her building.

      Alexander Litvinenko was a former KGB agent who died three weeks after drinking a cup of tea at a London hotel that had been laced with deadly polonium-210. Litvinenko was a vocal opponent of Mr Putin, accusing him of blowing up an apartment block and ordering the murder of journalist Anna Politkovskaya.

      An American investigative journalist of Russian descent, Paul Klebnikov was killed outside his office in a drive-by shooting in Moscow. He was editor in chief of the Russian edition of Forbes magazine. He had written about corruption and the personal lives of wealthy Russians, publishing a list of the country’s richest people.

      Sergei Yushenkov was a Russian politician shot dead as he tried to gather evidence proving the Putin government was behind the bombing of a residential apartment block. He was killed with a single bullet to the chest just hours after his organisation Liberal Russia had been recognised by the Justice Ministry as a political party.

      The list could go on but the point is Putin is a coward who uses others to do his dirty work. When it comes to Putin JHK’s uncritical commentary is strange. His defense of Putin and his “what-about-ism” is shameful.

        Yeeeaaaaah……….. So saith one of the jans, purveyor of naught but the purest of distilled truths, free of the taint of manufactured consent and tied to no agendas whatsoever.

        I feel better, safer, freer and more confident in our 17 (or so) “intelligence” agencies, don’t you?

        …This too shall pass.

        The man plays for keeps, what can I say?

        Still searching for those in the Trump campaign who ‘colluded’ with the Russians to ‘steal’ the 2016 election from Hilary Clinton, Little Jane?

        well, we’re still looking for the mutineers Ferdinand Magellan marooned in Patagonia for mutiny in 1520 during his circumnavigation of the world, and Walter Raleigh’s Lost Colonists at Roanoke, who dissappeared c1587. I think we’ll have as much luck finding these argonauts as you will finding the Russian colluders.
