Ho ho ho! It’s that time of year again. Here’s JHK’s holiday classic: A Christmas Orphan.

11-year-old Jeff Greenaway hears his mom and dad argue one night after an office Christmas party. He infers from their garbled squabble that he is an orphan, found in a willow basket on the welcome mat outside their New York apartment. Thinking now that his parents are imposters, he steals away to Grand Central Station and buys a train ticket to Drakesville, Vermont, where he intends to start life all over again.

As I write, the French stock market (the CAC 40), is doing a grand jeté (up 4.5 percent!) in celebration of Emmanuel Macron’s assumed slaying of the dragon Le Pen. But that was just the first round under the interesting French election system. Consider that two other candidates who were eliminated, Monsieurs Fillon and Mélenchon, got nearly 40 percent of the vote. Are we so sure about where their voters go in the second and final round two weeks from now?

I suspect that most Americans — even the ones who follow Rachel Maddow — are about as interested in French politics as differential calculus. Macron, 36, is a blank slate. He was finance minister under current president François Hollande, of the Socialist Party, but declared during the election campaign that he’s not a socialist, he only wanted to be of service to his country, and this time he ran under his own party, En Marche! He appears to represent the continuation of business-as-usual with the European Union, which seems to put him on the wrong side of history at this crucial moment — if you suppose, as I do, that the EU is so riddled with hopeless financial contradictions and centrifugal political tensions that it is unlikely to persist.

Yet, understandably, people are reluctant to change the system they’re living under. Le Pen wants to blow the EU up, especially the bureaucracy lodged in Brussels that has become a self-serving and self perpetuating monster. Blowing up the EU would necessarily, it seems, mean the end of the European Central Bank, and with it the scams and Ponzi schemes that have provided an appearance of normality, despite an official 10.5 percent unemployment rate in France and a constant chain of public massacres by resident Jihadistas of one sort or another, some of them perpetrated by radical refugees allowed in under EU policy.

Macron might serve the interests of the American Deep State, which is determined to drive a wedge between Europe and the Chinese-Russian-Iranian “silk road” economic bloc that would consolidate trade in the Eastern Hemisphere. The US wants “the West” to remain what it had been for seventy years: the dominant posse. Even if the underlying conditions remained the same, this might not be possible.

But those underlying conditions are changing, and in ways that much of the political maneuvering across the West cannot alter, or even comprehend, for instance, the inability of these mature industrial economies to grow anymore. That is largely a function of the end of affordable energy. Unfortunately, the absence of growth portends not stagnation but collapse as society fails to generate enough new wealth to pay its debts.

Now, we’ve seen a pretty impressive demonstration of advanced nations playing financial games to cover up this corrosive condition. But the dishonesty at work is pretty obvious, and the problem with dishonesty in financial affairs is that it represents unreality. The accrued momentum in colossal sums of money flowing this way and that way has allowed unreality to reign in international finance for a while. But that is now flying apart. The ultimate reality, politicians and economists will soon discover, is that you can’t create your own reality.

So whatever you think now about the French election, or the fate of the EU, is liable to change as the great debt crack-up our time finally gets underway and suddenly every nation has to scramble desperately to keep its shit together. That magic moment may be at hand this week as the US congress returns from Easter recess to face its budget and debt ceiling dilemmas. If the credit-worthiness of this country takes a wrong turn, it will upset the global currency system. In fact, it will rip a hole in financial time-and-space into which the presumed value of all sorts of things represented on paper and computer drives will disappear, never to be seen again.

    Revolution is a fight to the death between the future and the past.
    Fidel Castro

    • malthuss April 24, 2017 at 10:23 am #

      Yes, Fidel [the former Hollywood movie extra] gave Cuba a grim, gulag ‘future.’

      • miasmo April 24, 2017 at 3:39 pm #

        For some perspective, before Castro most Cubans lacked food, education, healthcare, and political rights. After Castro they still had no political rights, but they did have healthcare, education, and adequate food.

        Also, take into account that the most powerful country in the world has been doing its best to economically destroy Cuba for the past half century ever since Castro came to power.

        Regarding your implied contempt of acting, I assume you must have dismissed Reagan and Trump as well.

  3. Beryl of Oyl April 24, 2017 at 9:27 am #

    I find it intriguing that the French have accepted that they will have increasing numbers of angry Muslims living amongst them, who will every now and then just up and kill their fellow citizens.
    They are that afraid of being called names (racist, nationalist) that death is preferable?

      No, ‘tolerance’ runs deep in these brainwashed, alcoholic fools.

      I knew a cutie from Quebec. She did not like traveling in France [much to my surprise]. She saw drunken, flirtatious men and the crumbling Sorbonne.

      meanwhile,

      “France represents a huge attraction for immigration and when statistics were released in 2008, it was reported that 11.8 million foreign born and their immediate descendants were residents in the country; a figure which accounted for around 19% of the total population of the time.”

            I know that over there there are an awful lot of guns and a lot of gun crime and deaths, many of which are innocent or accidental deaths. It’s in your constitution, so that you can take on the government I think. Essentially to allow you to be terrorists yourselves if need be? You choose that. Dont get worked up about us, we prefer to be safer without too many guns thanks

            “The greatest killer of men under forty in the UK is suicide”
            -RobH

            The greatest MOTIVE behind male suicide in the U.K is MARRIAGE and the gynocentric tyranny that has weaponized marriage against men. If they didn’t have guns, men would find other ways to escape living death (marriage).

            MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way) is the only salvation for straight men. The very finest channel IMO on YouTube is “Messenger Rising” and he’s personally helped men who’ve attempted suicide or have had thoughts of doing it.

            youtube.com/channel/UCwobag5HX2Zu4w66Rj3La3g

            What he talks about can easily apply to men in ZOG Amerika, since the feminist disease originated here and spread around the world like the malignant cancer than it is.

        The US probably never will get significant gun control, because there are so many guns in private hands with, no records. The situation is quite unlike that in Canada, Japan, or the UK, where public ownership of firearms, especially handguns has always been limited, and to a great degree, recorded. Canadian, Japanese, or UK style gun control would require several hundred million guns be voluntarily surrenders by their owners, and I just don’t see that happening.

      The French are among the most weak and effete people in the world; thus, they will be among the first to go.

      • islander800 April 24, 2017 at 12:58 pm #

        I’m not so sure about that.

        You do know that the French have had not one, but many revolutions since 1789 whenever they were pissed at the “authorities” running the place, don’t you? Push them around for so long before they push back, big time.

        How many revolutions has America had? I would argue that one of the most passive, beaten, frightened people in the world today are Americans. Give them a big mac and a pair of Nikes and they’re happy, regardless of the human indignities the “authorities” impose on them. Meanwhile, hundreds of Americans are slaughtered every day by armed fellow citizens, yet Americans do nothing about the “problem”. Just the way it is in America, nothing to see here folks, so turn on “Dancing With the Stars” and tune out.

        Americans could take a few lessons from the French on civil unrest when they’ve been screwed over by those in charge.

      Yeah, they will elect Macron. People deride pollsters for getting the US election wrong, but that was a close election where a couple percentage points error in polling means you get the outcome wrong. In France, the establishment candidate leads by over 20%.

      I’d vote for Le Pen if I were French but she’s not going to win.

      So, what is a dollar? It’s not a green piece of paper. It’s permission to buy something–like playing Mother May I. If no one cares that they have to beg their own bank to let them spend their own money then perhaps we have the monetary system we deserve?

    • SpeedyBB April 25, 2017 at 3:01 pm #

      Funny you should mention Tricky Dicky Nixon, Mr. Magill. I remember well the feeling I had at that time that his election signaled the deep flaw in the so-called ‘democratic process’: no one with eyes and ears and two brain cells to rub together could profess to be ignorant of what this sleazy slimeball, who had been rockin & rollin since the 1950s for Zeus’ sake, stood for.

      We had put up with ‘Landslide Lyndon’ Johnson, who was as ‘democratic’ as you could expect a Texas machine politician to be (with a handful of unexplained violent deaths thrown into the mix for good measure). The election of moral cripples like Nixon, Reagan, the Bushes and Slick Willie put paid to the notion of ‘fair and free elections’.

    The Fourth Reich Today

    Leaders of 27 EU countries signed the Rome Declaration on the future of the community without the UK:

    cdn1.tass.ru/width/744_b12f2926/tass/m2/uploads/i/20170325/4464180.jpg

    So, the new EU agreement has been signed. The question of any disintegration of the EU is not even on the horizon.

    The treaty was signed without the UK, which was specifically emphasized by the news agencies. When they say “without the UK”, they mean “without the United States.”

    The Germans and the French managed to create a new pan-European empire. The previous project of the European empire – the Third Reich – had a rotten ideological basis, and proved unsuccessful.

    The creation of a European empire in the interests of a single class of a single nationality – the German workers (NSDAP) – could not become a fundamental idea of gathering European nations. What will be the new paradigm of the Fourth Reich is not yet clear, but the fact that Drang Nach Osten will be the big part of it is obvious. Just a part of geopolitical reality, unchanged from the 7th century AD.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drang_nach_Osten

    The strength of Germany and the temporary weakness of the United States allowed the Germans and the French to squeeze the UK out of the EU and, therefore, to free themselves from American influence.

    And yes, Brexit is a media picture for the idiots.

    Preservation of the Anglo-Saxon face before the alternative of a shameful exile. Poland, the traditional satellite of the United Kingdom and the United States, under suspicion and is the obvious next candidate for the exit.

    The British referendum and the clumsy maneuvering of the United States in the elections caused, as it is now obvious, the inevitability of signing the new European treaty. The United States will also have to withdraw from Europe, so it is better to do it as if on its own initiative.

    • shotho April 24, 2017 at 10:40 am #

      I don’t follow all of this, but I agree with its basic premise. The push of the EU into Ukraine is a good example of its “Drang nach Osten” and it did it with the active participation of the USA. Europe has not given up its dream of moving into the great land mass of Eurasia with its vast resources. But China is on the other side and Putin is smart and strong enough to know this.
      The great financial upheaval to come will undoubtedly change a lot of this thinking and, again, Putin is in place to benefit.
      Huxley’s Brave New World is looking like a prophecy to me.

    • islander800 April 24, 2017 at 1:23 pm #

      The problem with the Third Reich is that Hitler, the dumb ass he was, didn’t know the first rule of Empire 101: You need the conquered peoples in your occupied lands to supply the ONGOING human labor needed to sustain your empire. That means you keep them clothed, fed and more or less accepting of their conquered status. You don’t, as did Hitler, treat them savagely as mere animals and slave labor, literally working them to death. The idiot burned through his forced labor at such a rate that it was unsustainable.

      Many associate Hitler with the extermination of millions of Jews in Europe (and all you deniers can go to hell – it DID happen, too many witnesses, too many personal accounts, too much physical evidence to be a “hoax”), but he also emptied nations like France by the millions, shipping men, women and children back east to work and die in German factories and mines. The largely unknown story of WWII is the massive numbers of prisoners, millions, many non-Jews, who were used as expendable slave labor by the Nazis. People need to read some history.

      The Nazis were truly barbaric animals, probably the worst in the history of humanity.

    “The ultimate reality, politicians and economists will soon discover, is that you can’t create your own reality.”

    Get real, assuming they will learn from their follies is not realistic. They live from cradle to grave sealed in bubbles of unreality and convenient delusions. Bubbles which are not about to pop. Rather as the clusterfuck of collapse builds in momentum more unreality will be spawned not less.

    Last week you were muttering about national Alzheimers and now you postulate a birth of reason in groups of compulsive liars. It is not going to happen. Collapse will breed ignorance, not reason. Reason would be had by future historians who will never be. For us and our lying politicians it will become Halloween every day.

        • TiredOfTheTreadmill April 24, 2017 at 5:13 pm #

          Perhaps. But my ideology is based on being a student of life. Learning is part of that system, unlike so many other ideologies. Not that it’s perfect, but it does all for changing one’s mind based on new evidence, which seems to run contrary to the doubling down on stupid that many other ideologies seem to embrace. Further, introspection is part of my ideology. This activity is still undiscovered by many other ideologies, including that of Trump and his loyal Trumpanzees.

      • PostPeakRancher April 24, 2017 at 2:16 pm #

        Agreed, TiredOfTheTreadmill. “Experiencing” is a better word here than “learning”. I think it is funny, in a tragic comedy type of way, that he is quickly becoming the next neocon/neoliberal emperor of the USA. So many poor saps voted for him thinking he was going to be different. Similar to the poor saps in 2008 who voted for Obama.

        As our host says, life is tragic…

        • TiredOfTheTreadmill April 24, 2017 at 5:16 pm #

          Agreed. But at least the Obamabots didn’t follow Romney or McCain’s post election lives for further evidence that their vote for Obama was validated by the stupid shit those two were doing that could have been worse than the decisions Obama was making. Then, bring up what Romney and McCain were doing months into Obama’s term as yet more verification that he was better. These Trump true believers have taken this wacko crap to the next level.

    Long term success in politics means delivering the biggest real benefit to the most people. Short term success can be had by deceiving people into thinking they’re better off or distracting them. The globalist order has had a good run with that in recent decades but the spell they cast is failing. We need to be asking what is really good for us and seek out those who actually plan to deliver.

      Mexico depends a great deal upon dollars flowing in from the U.S. and if and when things go bust or the spigot of dollars is turned off, then Mexicans will pay one way or the other. Payment may be made metaphorically instead of in cash, but they will pay.

        Yeah, the sycophants/parasites living around Mexico City and the tourist resorts do. The still primarily agrarian real Mexicans, not so much. As far as paying for Trump’s wall, that will all be on the newly and continually impoverished in the US, many of whom might actually start dreaming of emigrating to Mexico. Trump’s days in the sun, few though they have been, are nearly over now.

          Puppets dancing on invisible strings often give the impression of autonomy where none actually exists. Trump’s a bit weighty to be sure, but a puppet all the same.

            Early on it occurred to me that dealing in the casino business in New Jersey meant having to do a sit-down with you-know-who, and you don’t blow them off or fail to pay unless you’re willing to join the legions in their cement overshoes offshore in the Atlantic.

            Early on The Donald undoubtedly got the message from you-know-who (the OTHER you-know-who) that if he wished to enjoy the perks and privileges of the highest office in the land he would have to carefully toe the line.

            And he clearly is. To all us hapless observers it looks like bait-and-switch. For him it is a matter of physical survival.

      Trump is the ultimate hypocrite, because that is the ultimate insult to liberals. He disparages Obama’s golf playing, then promptly begins playing at rate two or three times what Obama did. He says Mexico will pay for the wall, then quickly forces the US government into a game of chicken over it. Mexico will reimburse us. Yeah right. And I’ve got a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn. He says “Lock her up,” then turns around and appoints his children to key posts, completely ignoring the Bobby Kennedy law. That’s his game. He does what he wants, never compromises, never cares, never shows any guilt because he is infallible in his own mind. In one speech he said “very, very” a hundred times. If this man’s picture isn’t in the dictionary next to hyberbole, then the English language is failing too.

          No doubt. Like Alec Baldwin said when asked about imitating Trump on SNL and I quote “Trump is the guy who is always looking for the better, stronger word…and he never finds it.” That succinctly says it all. How many times have we waited with bated breath (Shakespeare) or baited breath (Rowling) at Trump’s pause only to be festooned with a “good” or “great” or “fantastic”?
          Every single time. He never ever delivers a better, more descriptive word.

    The financial game? It’s the same basic game that Bernie Madoff went to prison for. Yeah, Bernie cut some corners but the game in its essence is what Bernie was doing, all of it right under the noses of “regulators” who couldn’t stick a finger up their own ass if you held their hand.

    As a matter of fact somebody tried, one particular fella blew the whistle on Bernie, he brought the regulators numbers, drew them pictures, gave them diagrams with dots and lines connecting them. Held their hand so to speak. Not that it did any good.

    There’s only so much you can do. Never mind what’s in plain view, you learn that there’s no way that someone will see something if his paycheck depends on him not seeing. So now we have “regulators” that resolutely refuse to see and understand the un-workability of what they’re regulating only because their job is to not see and understand.

    Hopeless financial contradictions? To say the least. Financial contradictions that ride piggyback on even more hopeless economic contradictions all of which were built into the EU and the system of global production and trade.

    Open borders? Sure, getting Slovak truck drivers who drive in western Europe but have to live in their trucks because IKEA pays them Slovak level wages of 400 Euros a month may work wonders for IKEA’s bottom line in the short term. But the game plan here is to depress wages to Slovak levels so who is going to buy IKEA products? Surely not those Slovak drivers, nor formerly well-paid Danish and Swedish drivers who find themselves out of work.

    Central bankers moan about lack of growth. Yeah, that happens when the explicit policy is to destroy western middle class employment in favor of third world sweat shops.

    There’s not a lot of high-level analysis, nor any analysis of any kind with any modicum of common sense anywhere with such basic built-in illogic, not in the C-suites that contrive such nonsensical models, nor in national legislatures and the Brussels bureaucracy that enabled them, nor in think-tanks that gave academic cover, nor at the highest levels of politics.

    Finca’s guide to the French Elections

    It would seem that the choice is obvious. On the one hand, Putin’s puppet and the Russian fascist Le Pen, who begged money for her election campaign from the Ruler of Mordor.

    On the other hand, the icon of gay liberalism, tolerance, multiculturalism and increasing sanctions against Mordor (and very handsome) Macron. As the saying goes, you either vote or you lose. In fact, not everything is so straightforward. Just bear with me.

    Many have already hurried to write Macron in the winners, even the candidate Fillon, who swore allegiance to Putin, calls on his supporters to vote for the euro-gay.

    Are we not being pushed by the insidious Russian hackers, led by the Russian dictator’s cold hand, into another trap like the Ilovaisky cauldron for the Ukrainian army? Do not the all-powerful Putin-Putler has as his puppets not only Le Pen and Fillon, but also the externally perfect Macron? And is not Macron really the main creature of the Kremlin dwarf?

    Questions, questions and questions.

    Judge for yourself. Here is Marin Le Pen, a nationalist. Openly goes to the Kremlin, shakes hands with the Ruler of Mordor, Maria Katasonova devotes her prose, tweets, pictures, poems and secret girl’s fantasies.

    Here is Fillon. Neither fish nor meat (and not a frog), but already declared the main goal of his presidency to faithfully serve the Russian dictator.

    But Monsieur Macron, a man with a good face. The icon of liberalism, gay, supporter of strengthening sanctions against totalitarian Russia, advocates the expansion of Arab neighborhoods by attracting a new stream of Syrian refugees. If not Macron, then who?

    But was Putin too lucky to pick a sweet candidate? Not only will everyone believe in such an ideal candidate after Hollande and Sarkozy. Many have bought into his pre-election rhetoric, but I can not be fooled so quickly!

    Finca will buy you all, sell and buy again, but at a higher price. And what if under the mask of Macron is the cunning Pierre Richard, who has long since become his own in Moscow restaurants and bordellos?

    An excruciatingly complex multi-dimensional KGB operation cracked up by the Brighton Beach intelligentsia on a brainstorm in the Matryoshka pub after a few gallons of Stoli.

    So, they’ll all rally to defeat LePen, will they?

    Centrifugal political tensions that only exist because the EU was built to accommodate people in one structure that could never cohabit. Sicily and Greece and Germany in one common economic and monetary space? Who’s the moron that cooked this up?

    But it just gets worse when you admit millions of indigestible people from civilizations that exist in counter-point to your own. The absurdists who call themselves the European intellectual “elite” can’t seemingly see what’s plainly evident, their perch at the top of the social and economic pyramid gets more precarious by the day.

    Never mind that they deliberately screwed tens of millions of their fellow countrymen for the sake of personal aggrandizement and wealth and so made enemies of these people. But these same “elites” blithely assume that the foreigners they let in will know their place as humble servants and shit-cleaners, working in prosperous enclaves, but going home at night to crumbling banlieus. I’ll state the blindingly obvious (something that eludes the holders of graduate degrees from august centers of European learning), this is not the case. These foreigners are just like the elites that look down on them. Many of them have ambition, they have aspirations, and they have age-old systems of values and beliefs, and they cannot for the life of them see why these beliefs should take second place.

    And, as we’ve seen in the past several years, some of these people are taking up arms. This violence pops up, like one bubble after another like a slow rolling boil in these cooking kettles of aggreivement. Many more may not take up arms but they’ll refuse to accept that their own traditions and religion should remain subservient to French and German and European values.

    Do European intellectuals seriously think that, as Infidels, they have an equal place in the firmament with the Believer? They don’t. They never will have, not in the eyes of the devout. Do these Infidels seriously think that as Believers move up the income and political scale that accommodations can be made to preserve existing privilege and influence? They’re kidding themselves.

    As always, the more educated people are, the more they replace on-the-ground reality with airy abstractions. And the more preposterous the idea, the more traction it gets. It’s the mark of the great intellect to affect an understanding of pure gibberish.

    So, as surely as we’re sitting here, those wine sipping, caviar nibbling academics and bureaucrats and businessmen, will find themselves on the outs. They think that their money confers power. It doesn’t. Neither do titles like Managing Director of This or Minster of That. They think they can’t be dislodged. They’ll find out otherwise. They will be displaced, it’s just a question of who displaces them. In time we’ll find out if it’s the ethnic Frenchman or German that does the shoving or the Asiatic or North African.

      Quite so. To allow in such a massive number of aliens – something the Muslims would never do a million years – how do the Muslims understand that? Did anyone ever stop to even ask? They’re not needed economically – if that was ever true, it’s just a ruse now. The Muslims can only see it as an inarticulate cry for help from a dying civilization. And when they hear that people aren’t marrying and women aren’t having children, it simply confirms the idea. Their Mullahs have even begun to preach this message: that it is their happy duty to fulfill European women in this way since their own men are incapable.

      Are they wrong? European women are overwhelmingly in favor of continued invasion. The price of their pussy goes up with every new man entering in. And of course the Godlessness is at the root of all of this social dysfunction. Islam has the answer for that of course.

      Lin Yutang, an eminent Chinese intellectual who lived in the West for a long time was asked what he saw as our greatest social problem. He replied, That so many nice women are left unmarried and without children. Like traditional Indians, he saw this as a Right. In old India, a woman without relatives could approach a Priest or Guru and ask him to find her a husband. One White Nationalist intellectual agreed, saying that the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness meant marriage and children for the average woman.

            Women cling to appearances with a vise like grip. The firing squad, hanging, and the guillotine are all far more compassionate methods of execution than the injections. Yet our feminine sensibility prefers the rubric of medical barbarity to what is best for the condemned.

            Meditate on the Vedic story “Liquid Beauty”: A young Princess loved God and decided never to marry. A an ardent royal suitor wouldn’t leave her alone. She hit upon a solution: fasting and laxatives. He came back after a few weeks and asked to see her. She said, “I am she.” He said, “But where has your beauty gone?” She pointed to the buckets of shit, “There it is”.

            As Plato said, nothing is beautiful in itself. Things partake of beauty for a time and then cease to do so. The Goddess departs leaving its former acolyte bereft.

            A small child is shown something colored red on one side and blue on another. The object is placed so he sees red. He is then asked what color the questioner is seeing. He will reply, “Red”. His brain is unable to take the other person’s pov. Now obviously you “can” – you just don’t want to. Your problem isn’t cognitive, but moral.

            One of the signs on the Science March said, Migration moves forward Evolution. Sure, sometimes. Sometimes it does the opposite. It depends on whose coming in and whose being replaced. Obviously if you put an old nag in with a race horse the offspring is just a whole lot of nothing. Evolution means specialization. And cross breeding destroys character as Darwin said. In other words, we’re going to lose a lot of information and quality if Tan World comes into being. Diversity means boundaries. If you let all the colors on your palette run together, you get mud. And who wants that?

            I know, I know – sick White Women. Breeding down is Freud’s Thanatos or the Death urge. The sages have always warned us against lust. Eros in its fullest sense, serves Life and is the upward movement – it is far more than mere sex or lust.

            One Hindu teacher used to teach thus: in hot afternoon sun of tropical India he would roll a huge boulder up a high hill for hours. The whole village would watch. Then when he got to the top he would roll it down while whooping and jumping up and down yelling, “It’s so hard to go up. But to go down you don’t have to do anything at all.” Eros and Thanatos, Thwack. Eros and Thanatos. As Moses said, I put before you Life and Death. Now choose.

    I watched the recording of Saturday’s Russian News

    These idiots are not going to bury Lenin, they are going to rebury the whole cemetery behind the Mausoleum somewhere in Mytishchi, together with Gorbachev.

    That’s how you can turn the best idea into its opposite. After all, the idea of burying Lenin in my opinion is a good idea if he is buried right in the Mausoleum or near the Kremlin wall, after having consecrated the entire cemetery, since it is a question of restoring the Christian standards of life, and as far as I know, no one has excommunicated Lenin and Stalin from the Church.

    Demolition of Khrushchev’s five-story buildings is from the same series – no one robbed you, because you had nothing.

    They will finish the present jubilee of the Great October Socialist Revolution, which this time will be called the November Revolution, and I will soon learn how fast the Orthodox hierarchs will remember the legacy of Patriarch Sergius – let’s hope that this will not require a full repetition of lessons learned on the Butovo firing range.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butovo_firing_range

    These are all the same sorry story with Moscow electric trains that Dvorkovich canceled, forcing Putin to ask live on TV if they all were fucking nuts. No they are not crazy, they specifically try to provoke a social crisis in order to direct the outburst of indignation at Tsar Putin.

    The history of the February Revolution is repeated one to one, only I do not yet see any Lenin. So far. History teaches us that no one learns history lessons until history punishes for lessons unlearned.

    One hope that Putin’s saints are not Boris and Gleb, like the Nicolas II, but Vladimir the Saint and Alexander Nevsky. Then, in Glazunov’s studio, he was not right, because Boris and Gleb sacrificed themselves, testifying about Christ, and Putin, while allowing himself to be dethroned in this way, would testify to something else entirely.

    Everybody knows the dice is loaded, to quote Leonard Cohen.The fake economy bellicose behavior will do in American Empire. You have a murderous belligerent tradition as well which balances your monetary chicanery. From 1945 to 1946 about 2 million German soldiers were slaughtered in POW camps in Germany and France. There was no food, water or medical support in the compounds open to the elements, devoid of shelter. There were SS pychopaths there, but really; to kill in cold blood ordinary conscripts? German civilians did not fare much better and you had a hand in killing several million of them; indirectly via starvation, disease, that type of thing. You can see the book and YouTube videos by James Bacque ‘Other Losses’ for historical reference.Then there was Dresden. Hundreds of thousands died in one night because of incendairy bombing of the city without a military target. The noose around your collective necks is tightening every day.

      What can I say? Our Anglo-Saxons cousins are real savages – probably spent too much time on the pirate ships and exterminating the American Indians in the American West – we, Russians, treated the German prisoners of war way better.

    • Janos Skorenzy April 24, 2017 at 3:52 pm #

      Psychopaths? Violence without hatred is the Aryan ideal put forth in the Bhagavad Gita. The whole world attacked National Socialist Germany. Of course they fought. The SS were the Elite – one drawn from many Nations, including non-Whites. They were the model, the exemplar, the Eidelon, the Seed of a New Order.

      Of course they had to be destroyed. That can be respected. The strange Liberalism that hates them and then doesn’t want them destroyed but does so secretly? That is the enemy. The shit eating grin of Eisenhower and the people who voted for that monster. He changed the status of the POW’s to avoid the Geneva Convention. You can murder people as long as they aren’t “POW’s”. Then he dares to warn us against the military industrial complex? Hypocrisy can reach no great height.

      Ever read about the Morgenthau plan to turn Germany into an “agricultural state”? They were planning to starve the whole German people to death. A German American Senator went after him on the Senate floor and FDR relented saying to Morgenthau, “Henry, we have to give them something.” Morgenthau was bitter because he had been used to float the idea and then left high and dry.

      Then there was the Kaufman Plan to sterilize all German men. Kaufman said, “They wouldn’t even have to miss a day’s work”. The German people fought on once they heard about the such tender mercies.

      But Frau Merkel has succeeded, after generations of the most vicious propaganda imaginable, where these august gentlemen failed. You still want to talk about the SS? Against such evil these men were forged.

    I see JHK has missed that this weeks budget crisis is not about the debt ceiling but is rather about passing the appropriations bills. Everyone seems to be missing this but I would have thought JHK was a little sharper. This weeks ‘crisis’ amounts to Republicans saying fund the wall or we won’t appropriate money for a lot of other things.

    The debt ceiling thing comes later. That is whenever the Treasury decides that it has reached the limit, whatever it is. Nobody really knows. It’s all rather opaque. When that day arrives then the Treasury will no longer be able to borrow money and then it will only be able to pay about 97% of its bills.

    At any rate the constitution demands that the House of Representatives originate bills to spend money and then the Senate has to agree and then the President signs the bills. No bills, no spending. The whole debt ceiling thing is about getting the money to spend for what was appropriated. As I said that’s all sort of opaque but the appropriations bills are plain to see.

    In the 1960s, when the colonial system collapsed, France organized its former colonies in the system of “forced solidarity.” Under the terms of this system, 14 “independent” African states transfer 65% of their foreign exchange reserves directly to the Treasury of France, and another 20% are transferred there as financial obligations.

    That is, these countries dispose of only 15% of their own funds. If they need more, they are forced to borrow their own money from the French at the rate of commercial banks, and in an amount not more than 20% of their income for the previous year. It is interesting: no matter how much these 14 states have earned, they will be able to spend only 35%, and for 20 of them should pay interest.

    Even more interesting is the trade and economic system of relations between France and its former colonies. Thus, the former metropolis has not only a priority right to purchase any natural resources from these African countries – it may prohibit them from selling to third countries. In addition, state contracts of Africans are primarily offered to French enterprises, and only after their refusal Africans can seek contractors elsewhere.

    Honestly, after studying all the conditions of the system of “forced solidarity”, the question arises: why are the colonies called “former”?

    That is, today’s France has long been the remnant of its former greatness, which is still being supported by the colonial “family silver.” If there were no colonies, France would long ago retreat into the third world by its GDP and all other indicators.

      The Eurozone has to be reformed in a fundamental way, along with the stagnating policies placed upon its members.

      Economic policies were put in place without enough consideration to political policies. And yet more economic integration could take place, like common deposit insurance across Europe. Questionable if Germany would go along.

      A “flexible euro” has been proposed. This is where each member still trades in euros, but a German euro may not trade equally with a Greek euro, for example.

      Much has to be done to make the euro and Europe work successfully into the future.

        common deposit insurance? flexible euro? (i.e. no common currency)

        What would be the conceptual foundation of such union? What would be its image of success?

        • tucsonspur April 25, 2017 at 2:20 am #

          As I understand it, the currency is still common but the value of one country’s euro can vary compared to another, within limits.

          Large trade imbalances, particularly trade surpluses like Germany has run, has brought forth the idea of a market also trading in “chits”, to help balance imports and exports. These so called “chits” would supposedly limit the variation of value between each country’s euro.

          It’s also proposed that in addition to a strong banking union, Europe should take on more social responsibility and help fund unemployment insurance in stressed countries, to free up their budgets.

          The conceptual foundation would be roughly the same, but with the above mentioned changes in addition to others.
          The image of success would simply be a much more balanced and prosperous EU.

    I don’t know if European women are in favor of continued invasion because, as Janos sez, the price of their pussy goes up with every new man.

    I think it’s like this one guy said on his blog a while back, women will figure out who the dominant males are. And requirements for modest dress notwithstanding and women’s rights be damned, they’ll go with the dominant men.

    Look at the clammy, boneless, apathetic and enervated, sorry-assed excuses for men that Caucasian Europe is producing, irresolute and tentative, embarrassed by their own existence. If you were a European woman, would you want one of those dead fish next to you in the sack?

    In contrast, Muslim men aren’t known for their uncertainty about their faith, their civilization, their place at the head of the household. At least, not the ones I’ve met. Bursting with confidence and vigor and orientation to action. In the environs they’re from, attacks on their kin and clan require men to inflict kinetic retribution, in contrast to European men with their weepy candlelight vigils. If you were female what would you prefer?

    OK, so I’ll directly ask the female readers of the comment section: what would you prefer? Be honest.

    In any case, demographics will be destiny, because of higher birthrates, fighting-age Middle Eastern descended men will outnumber the others. When that happens it’s a done deal. Notre Dame cathedral will stay Christian with the permission of Muslim shot-callers. And European women will be wearing head-coverings.

      Well yes, obviously. Perhaps some White Women are secretly hoping that White Men will overcome their socialization (largely implemented by Women) and fight for them? And even defeat the Muslims? In either case, Feminism is revealed to be an utter crock. Women are controlled by genetic programs (software that comes with the hardware) millions of years old. Wearing the hijab will suddenly seem “cool” or “edgy” or “liberating”. Dummies can justify anything to themselves.

      Yes, the vigils are vile. Boring and laughable. This is what you get from Muslims in Europe. You wanted it now live with it. Or die by it. But don’t pretend you’re winning by shopping or sipping lattes. Or as Justin Trudeau, the Alpha Omega Male said, “If you kill them, they win.”

      So, do you actually believe that nearly four billion females on planet, Earth fit so very neatly into your concocted little. single dimensional, stereotype bag?

      Well, I guess it makes sense that every female alive would be motivated by the very exact same set of mental processes and behave identically to all other women considering the obvious fact that females only possess a single brain cell.

      Apparently because women enjoy being raped and otherwise abused, “…they’ll go with the dominant men”.

      I would be flabbergasted to see any female respond to your inquiry. I can imagine only that there utter disgust at the sight of such notions would put them off of bothering to respond.

        You mad bro?

        Don’t hate the player; hate the game.

        His assessment of females is basically accurate. Women don’t want to win, they want a WINNER. A womans agency is to use her sexuality to get a man do do things for her; like beat the shit out of other men, build a house, make a fire…

        The bar has always been pretty low for women to reproduce; thats why they are the way they are today.

        In contrast, the bar for males to reproduce is much higher. We can’t lay around all pale and stiff like The English Patient, and still get laid.

    How Sean Spicer blew Trump’s N. Korean policy

    Remember that famous “Hitler didn’t use chemical weapon against his own people” remark by Sean Spicer he was almost crucified for?
    youtu.be/a-oCjNGPlQs?t=946

    Ever wonder why there was such a fuss against pretty accurate statement? Almost to a point requesting Sean resignation.

    Actually, during the same press conference, Sean allowed himself a really unforgivable mistake – he admitted that N. Korea does not present any nuclear threat to United States:

    youtu.be/a-oCjNGPlQs?t=1400

    There is no evidence that N. Korea has this capability at this time, I don’t think that threatening something you don’t have a capability of is not really a threat

    Oops, that is really kind of mistake Sean could’ve lost his job for – US is sending a lot of muscle to the region for a non-existing threat?

    The whole N. Korean show is about China.

    Trump has u-turned on: (a) pull out of Syria and restore good relations with Russia; (b) stop the useless wars overseas and invest in US infrastructure and jobs; (c) label China a currency manipulator; (d) raise tariffs; (e) end the H1b1 visa program; (f) tax reform; (g) investigate the Clinton Foundation; (h) give access to the alternative media; (i) build the Wall; (j) repeal Obamacare; (k) Drain-the-Swamp (cut the size of the Federal Government). Anything else?

    Trump did pull out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, but Paul Ryan seems to have decided that the TPP is back on the table?

    I wonder what they did to Trump? It’s one thing to be stymied, but for Trump to reverse course is rather odd.

    Donald Trump’s UK-based F-35 jets land on Vladimir Putin’s doorstep to join Nato taskforce in Estonia

    thesun.co.uk/news/3408647/donald-trump-f-35-jets-nato-vladimir-putin-estonia/

    Boeing also received an order for the production of F-15s of yet unknown modification, which is a fire measure necessary to close a nightmare hole in the US defense, due to the lack of a viable US fighter-bomber. This hole became apparent even to Mad Dog Mattis, as missile attack in Syria showed the complete inability of US missiles with which F-35 is armed to resist Russian electronic warfare.

    Here is a very good review of the leading expert in this field, explaining why the F-35s do not pose a threat to Russia in Estonia, while being a very good continuation of the propaganda campaign that Donald Trump began in Syria, trying to discredit the campaign of discrediting him as the president, lead against him by Hillary Clinton, accusing Trump in cooperation with Putin’s Russia.

    bryensblog.com/trump-right-f-35/

    In this review, Stephen Bryan explains that due to its faulty aerodynamics, being sacrificed to stealth, the F-35, having shot out its ammunition, turns into an easy prey for Su-35, not to speak of the T-50, which was tested in Zhukovsky yesterday. In particular, he explains that if the Russian electronic countermeasures systems prove effective against the air-to-air missiles AIM-120D, which the F-35 should be armed with, this most expensive weapons program will turn out to be money thrown into the wind.

    But after the Syrian missile attack the word if could be dropped from the previous sentence and the F-35 can be transferred to the border with Russia, as Putin knows about their combat capabilities.

    Which, however, does not prevent them from convincing the Clinton-zombies that Trump is not a Russian spy

          In any case, the Country is lost without martial law. No matter what threats or pressure Trump is under, if he told Mattis to take control of America, Mattis would do it.

    “That magic moment may be at hand this week as the US congress returns from Easter recess to face its budget and debt ceiling dilemmas.”

    When the proverbial sh*t hits the fan, wag the dog and start a war to distract. Works every time. Trump met with all members of the Senate at the White House today, a highly unusual move, so it seems something is up. Also, there has been no mention in the MSM of the simultaneous power outages in NYC, LA and SF over the weekend, a “coincidence” that is highly suspect. I would not be surprised if we were at war with N. Korea by week’s end. The Lamestream Media has been ratcheting up the war rhetoric for weeks, and supposedly the US carrier strike group will be in place along the Korean Peninsula as of today. That is, if they didn’t lie to us again and the ships are still in Australia. But if our forces are actually there, it’s not to just sit in the ocean and wait. It’s not a matter of if, but when the war will start.

    Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the Clintonoid-Republican who trashed American patriot Gen. Flynn, was the one who provided a cover-up for murder of the members of Seal Team-6 who killed Osama bin Laden

    youtu.be/21EgUpsPzoo?t=92

  64. FincaInTheMountains April 26, 2017 at 5:51 am #

    Six years has passed since the moment when the unit of NAVY SEALS, apparently directly under the command of President Obama, shot down the arch-terrorist Osama bin Laden. And they did it on the territory of Pakistan, officially friendly to the US. Besides, they did not get a license to shoot bin Laden from the leaders of this state, in spite of, or maybe because bin Laden himself, as it turned out, was not hiding in the closed military territory – an analogue of the American West Point.

    This alone shows that the decision to conduct this operation could only be taken at the level of the Nation’s leader, since by authorizing this assassination, President Obama took a truly fateful decision, with geostrategic consequences. In addition to the obvious complications with Pakistan, among other things, a nuclear power with operationally tactical means of delivery, it was this murder that ended the Cold War, the temperature of which was probably hotter just before the end than during the Caribbean crisis.

    The fact is that Osama bin Laden was the tip of the weapon that some circles in the United States used to inflict a fatal blow to the USSR and Yugoslavia, and then, not without success, used against post-Soviet Serbia and Russia.

    I must say that these so-called campaigns carried a distinct anti-Orthodox and pro-Muslim, or rather pro-Salafi taste.

    Suffice it to recall how President Clinton stopped the bombing of Iraq during the Ramadan celebration, but refused to stop bombing of Serbia during Easter, despite the very persistent recommendations of his advisers. And the occupation forces in Serbia KFOR did not try to prevent the barbarous destruction of cultural and artistic values of world importance in the Serbian Orthodox monasteries in Kosovo, the heart of the Serbian Orthodox culture since the 7th century, whose significance for Serbia is comparable, perhaps only with Sergeyev-Posad for Russia.

    At the same time, we should not forget that a significant part of the Orthodox Serbs was destroyed and expelled from Kosovo during the Second World War by Albanian Muslims who actively collaborated with the German Nazi invaders.

    And by the way, Russian Cossacks of SS Gruppenführer General Shkuro took part in this, despite the fact that it was the Serbs who sheltered them after the revolution. What actually created the problem, radically changing the national composition of Kosovo, since Joseph Broz Tito after the war, at the urging of his new British friends and against Joseph Stalin’s attempts to create the Orthodox Comintern, decided in the name of the interethnic peace in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia not to allow the Orthodox Serbs to return to Kosovo. We just do not know well what role Orthodoxy played in the plans of the mustached winner in the most terrible war in the history of mankind. True Cold War may have been even worse, but the question arises whether it was a war.

    It is easy to guess that Obama’s decision to kill the head of Al-Qaeda in Pakistan for a long time puts a cross not only on the Big Game of the possibility of continuing the cooperation of Islamists and the West against the Orthodox civilization, which began not even with Lord Palmerston and started by him the Crimean War, but rather with the murder of Russian Emperor Paul I and the Pruth campaign of Peter the Great.

    And all this takes place against the backdrop of the repeated strengthening of the power and influence of the American Orthodox Church, which began under George W. Bush, and today, one must think, does not go without the tacit approval of President Obama and President Trump.

    Apparently because women enjoy being raped and otherwise abused, “…they’ll go with the dominant men”. – Toktomi

    Toktomi, tsk, tsk, who sez that Islam is about rape and abuse? Not me, that’s for sure. Maybe I’m reading between the lines so feel free to correct me but maybe you think that’s what Islam is about, maybe you have a distaste for Islam. If so, that’s your problem, not mine.

    And who sez that dominant men rape and abuse women? Not me. You’re not reading what I actually wrote, maybe you’re reading what you WISH I wrote.

    No, just to elaborate, in my view, dominant men know what they’re about, they know what they want to accomplish, they ACCOMPLISH what they set out to do, they don’t make excuses, they take responsibility, they defend what’s dear to them.

    OK, well, maybe you disagree with the notion that women have a general preference for tough and decisive and capable men ie winners, over weak and irresolute and submissive men ie losers. I don’t know what to say except have a look at any high school society or any workplace.

    But the point of the post wasn’t a condemnation of women, nor an endorsement of middle -eastern men. In keeping with past comments it was a rebuke to European men.

    Again, how can it possibly be that 500 million people in the EU can’t find it in themselves to fend off 145 million Russians? How can it possibly be that they need US help?

    The answer my friend isn’t blowin’ in the wind, European men are tasked with national defense. I know, this is sexism. Or militarism. But somebody has to do it and historically it’s been men that did it. But European men can’t find their man pants, instead they’re supplicants to American men who are expected to do the job for them. To use a Trumpism, it’s a disgrace. How this is fair or justifiable is beyond me.

    No matter, there’s a vacuum in European society. European men vacated the space and somebody’s gonna fill it.

    Here’s another scenario, Islam as the dominant religion of the downtrodden. No secret that EU and globalist arrangements severely screwed and impoverished millions of people. Nationalist parties are one result. But you want to bet that someone in the European Islamic world will see the opportunity and jump in? All it takes is ripening economic and social conditions and a charismatic and persuasive leader and away you go: join us, we’re the religion of justice, we’re the religion of the common man, we have a plan and a helping hand.

    Imagine Islam as the religion of protest or the stick in the eye to a corrupt and self-serving Establishment whose rule ruined entire swathes of society.

    It’s not just women that back the winning horse, so do men. A great many European men could decide that it makes sense to convert either out of personal conviction or for personal advantage. If Islam looks like the wave of the future I would expect European mosques to become busy places. So then imagine Islam not just as the dominant religion of the downtrodden but as the dominant religion, period.

    Something else, the same thing could easily happen this side of the pond. Give it time.

    Trump is an American President and his duty to comply with the interests of the United States, and Putin should respect Russia’s interests.

    But the question arises: since everything is comprehended in comparison with whom we should compare Trump?

    And this is where the mystery is, or rather the riddle, since Hillary Clinton, having gotten the access to the red button that she handed to Lavrov, would have long ago buried both Russia and the United States, which in my opinion does not fit with either Russian or American national interests.

    For her, the US is a means, and nuclear war is the goal. And for Trump, on the contrary: the US is the goal, and the threat of nuclear war could be a means.

    Moreover, the statements he made during the election campaign and thanks to which he received the support of the voters showed that he has in his head a general idea about the need to reconcile the secondary interests of the US and Russia in the name of the primary ones, one of which is the existence of the US in a shape suitable for its citizens living and that coincides with the similar national interest of Russia.

    Unfortunately, the American educated public (unlike the Rednecks) were so thoroughly brainwashed in the colleges that they are completely incapable of perceiving this simple idea, and in my opinion the main concern of Russia should now be awakening of these idiots, which must begin with the cleansing of their friends and colleagues in Russia who act as frogs boiling in the cauldron, where the magic ideological potion for the whole world is brewed.

    But it’s kind of esoteric, and what I want to talk about here is very simple, I would even say primitive, but it allows to show the uniqueness of the moment when from the above-mentioned point of view the national interests of Russia and the US do coincide.

    For example, the US now is in a very difficult situation, as they spent all their resources on the creation of the F-35, which is not really a fighter bomber, but a bomber that can carry air-to-air missiles either in internal compartments or on an external suspension.

    But, carrying these missiles on an external suspension, it loses its stealth qualities, and carrying them in the inner compartments he ceases to be a bomber, since it has nowhere to put the bombs.

    In short, this is a typical airplane for a first strike on Russia (the first one is disarming, not preventive!), but after the Su-27 was modernized and the Su-35 appeared, none of them will reach the target, but even will not be able to enter a missile launch position.

    Each such F-35 with nuclear bombs on board must be accompanied by a few F-22 fighters, and this is an armada, the preparation of which can not be concealed, and there are too few F-22 anyway. And Russia in its military doctrine officially announced that seeing the preparation of such an armada, it won’t hesitate to deal a preemptive blow, as a result of which the armada simply evaporates.

    In addition, it should be noted that the previous US budget could only be reconciled by cutting off the Pentagon’s funding, and this Friday there should be a reconciliation of the new budget. And if the Democrats kill it, Trump can simply order the US Army to storm the CIA and FBI buildings, because these enemies of the people (and he once used the term) want to leave America unarmed facing the war that they are trying to get America into. (This, of course is a joke, but in every joke there is some joke).

    Therefore, when Trump came to power, he immediately tried to replace the F-35 with either the F-15 Silent Eagle or the F-18 Super Hornet. And Lockheed-Martin (manufacturer of F-35) kicked into reverse and lowered the prices for its products, giving Trump the reason to dance on their bones, simultaneously showing these Hillary Clinton sponsors what greedy bastards they are, for robbing the American army of sooooo much money and leaving it without a fighter at a critical moment in history.

    In addition, the F-15 and F-18 are aircraft of the fourth generation and the S-400 (not to mention the S-500) will cope with them if not easily, but with a high degree of probability which was apparently verified in combat conditions in Syria.

    Therefore, plans for a disarming strike must be thrown away, and then why should US continue to throw money at Euro anti-missile stations in Poland and Romania? Naturally, the appearance of such issues in the US Congress is in full harmony with Russia’s national interests, not because Trump is a Putin’s spy, but because he is an American patriot.

    • FincaInTheMountains April 26, 2017 at 1:51 pm #

      Naturally, all these arguments are meaningless if Hillary is still alive, but what they showed recently was definitely her body double.

      But then the question arises: why do they show a double if Bastinda is alive and well and her faithful servants are ready to sit at the controls of the F-35s and to experience the advantages and disadvantages of the Russian radio-electronic disease of the flying monkeys called “Rubella”?

    • messianicdruid April 26, 2017 at 2:11 pm #

      A point of trivia – the F18 was the first to have thrust greater than weight and could accelerate in a vertical climb. Pragmatically the way controllers capitalized on this feature was, when separating from an air carrier or general aviation aircraft you simply climbed the F18 and asked for an altitude report which arrived in seconds rather than minutes of nail-biting anxiety.

    • ozone April 26, 2017 at 6:37 pm #

      Wholly shit, Finca; you took a long time to get around to the salient point: Missile tech (and pursuing it on the [relative] cheap) makes or breaks battlefield advantage in the age of advanced rocketry and telemetry. Whiz-bang flying coffins aside; there ya go.

    Are the Police secret Masons? The symbolism of the Fraternal Order of Police suggests as much. And the symbolism of Masonry is overwhelmingly Jewish. Thus the goal of Masonry is to turn free men into servants of the Jews. But once the Masters appear, the “workmen” have to make themselves scarce. They can come back later for their “wages”. And the wages of sin is death…

    Jen in San Jose,

    My candidate for your list has beauty AND brains:

    10. Asma (née Akhras) al-Assad of Syria

    Asma al-Assad is the UK born, raised and educated wife of the current President of Syria, Bashar al-Assad.

    Her father was a cardiologist at the Cromwell Hospital and her mother a retired diplomat who served as First Secretary at the Syrian Embassy in London. She grew up in Acton, London, where she went to Twyford Church of England High School and later a private girls’ school, Queen’s College, London. She graduated from King’s College London in 1996 with a first-class honors B.S. in computer science and a diploma in French literature. She speaks English, Arabic, French and Spanish. After graduating from King’s College she pursued a career in investment banking. She started as an economics analyst at Deutsche Bank Group in the hedge fund management division with clients in Europe and East Asia. In 1998, she joined the investment banking division of J.P. Morgan where she worked on a team that specialised in biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. She was set to begin an MBA at Harvard University when she married Bashar al-Assad in December, 2000.

    Incidentally, for those unaware of her husband’s background, Bashar al-Assad graduated from the medical school of Damascus University in 1988 and started to work as a doctor in the Syrian Army. Four years later, he attended postgraduate studies at the Western Eye Hospital in London, specialising in ophthalmology. In 1994, after his elder brother Bassel died in a car crash, Bashar was recalled to Syria to take over Bassel’s role as heir apparent. He entered the military academy, taking charge of the Syrian occupation of Lebanon in 1998. On 10 July 2000, Assad was elected as President, succeeding his father, who died in office a month prior. In the 2000 and subsequent 2007 election, he received 99.7% and 97.6% support, respectively, in referendums on his leadership. On 16 July 2014, Assad was sworn in for another seven-year term after taking 88.7% of votes in the first contested presidential election in Ba’athist Syria’s history.

    In February 2011, Vogue published “A Rose in the Desert,” a flattering profile of Asma al-Assad by veteran fashion writer Joan Juliet Buck. The article was later removed from Vogue’s website without editorial comment that spring.

    Shoigu: Israel is a key partner and player in the Middle East

    MOSCOW, April 26. / TASS /. Cooperation between Russia and Israel will be aimed at strengthening the fight against terrorism and further coordination of actions in Syria. This was announced by the Russian Defense Minister, Army General Sergei Shoigu at a meeting with his Israeli counterpart Avigdor Lieberman.

    He noted that in Israel, as well as in Russia, they know firsthand about the problems of terrorism.

    I hope that today we will have an opportunity to discuss everything related to the operation in Syria, especially since we are acting in the framework of our agreement on the prevention of air incidents in the air. I hope that our further work will be aimed at strengthening our struggle against terrorism and for further coordination of actions in this region

    News from the Future, Part 1

    During 2017, the US military and political pressure on Russia on the Syrian issue continues to grow. Washington aims to intimidate Moscow with the possibility of a military conflict and force it to withdraw its troops from Syria, leaving the government of Bashar Assad alone with numerous terrorist groups. The CIA took a direct part in supplying these groups with weapons, military training of militants, and the financing of these operations came from Saudi Arabia and Qatar. In the summer months of 2017, terrorist groups received a large number of weapons and ammunition. A great offensive was being prepared. To make it possible, Russia had to be withdrawn as soon as possible from the game.

    For this purpose, a plan was developed that provides for another incident involving the use of chemical weapons allegedly by Syrian troops. This time – in the province of Aleppo. Using this incident as an excuse, the United States was to inflict a massive blow with cruise missiles (CR) on a number of Syrian military targets. This time, the strike had to include 150 missiles and be a shock to Moscow. Then the Americans would continue shelling the Syrian positions, but this time on the front line. And the strikes should have been applied not only from the sea, but also from the air.

    Washington believes that, frightened by such a powerful demonstration, Moscow would be paralyzed and ceases to participate in the fighting on the side of the Syrian government. At this time, terrorist groups will break through the front line and again take Aleppo. At the same time, an offensive was to begin in Latakia in the direction of the location of the Russian military base Khmeimim. At the same time, Moscow will be offered an honorable version of surrender – US assistance in the evacuation of Russian military bases from Syria.

    In addition to the actual Syrian operation, this plan contained several secret annexes providing for further steps. It was supposed that after the withdrawal of Russian troops from Syria, the fighting in the Donbass will be intensified and the political situation in Russia will start to swing to overthrow the “incompetent regime in the Kremlin.”

    The ultimate goal of the plan is the disarmament and dismemberment of Russia, its complete elimination as a geopolitical center of power in Eurasia.

    On the appointed day, the rebels of the terrorist organization Jebhat Fatah ash-Sham conducted a staged chemical attack, releasing a sarin gas delivered from the United States to the agreed location.

    After this, an information campaign began in the Western media, accusing the president of Syria Bashar Assad of this crime.

    Everything is played out over the repeatedly used scenario. On this background, President Trump ordered the missile strike on Syria. The strike was inflicted by a group of the American fleet consisting of several ships and submarines from the Mediterranean and Red Seas.

    In particular, two Ticonderoga missile cruisers from the island of Crete released 25 Tomahawk missiles at the Kuweires airfield near Aleppo. As a result of the attack, several aircraft and helicopters were destroyed. The Russian helicopter crew was killed.

    The Russian President learned of the American strike even before the Tomahawk missiles reached Syria. Half an hour later he was informed of the death of Russian pilots. Immediately upon receipt of this news, the President of Russia gives the Chief of the General Staff an order to attack American ships that fired at the Kuweires airfield. Ten minutes later, the Russian frigate Admiral Grigorovich, just east of the island of Cyprus, launches 12 anti-ship missiles (Caliber-NK 3M54) at the American cruisers. These missiles only recently entered the arsenal of the Russian fleet, their characteristics and peculiarities of application are unknown to the Americans.

    Missile defense systems of cruisers intercept only 8 missiles, but 4 hit the target. One cruiser was sunk by three missiles; the other received serious damage being hit by the fourth missile. The retaliatory strike of the cruisers did not reach the goal, since the Russian frigate was out of range of American “Harpoons”.

    Then the attack on the frigate initiates an American “Los Angeles” class submarine hiding near the southern coast of Cyprus, not far from the British Royal air force base Akrotiri. It fires all of her ammunition of the Harpoon missiles at Admiral Grigorovich – 8 pieces. The missile defense system of the Russian frigate knocks down 7 Harpoons, but one missile hits the target. Admiral Grigorovich gets a heavy hole, but remains afloat.

    Even before the arrival of US missiles moving at subsonic speeds, Admiral Grigorovich received the coordinates of an American submarine identified by a Russian AEW aircraft that was flown from the Khmeimim airbase together with all the Su-35 and Su-30M fighters immediately after the American attack on Kuweires.

    Therefore, the Russian frigate manages to launch four anti-submarine missiles “Caliber-91P1” at the submarine before receiving a US missile strikes. Supersonic “Caliber” reached the goal in about six minutes. The submarine does not have time to change position and gets a deadly hit by one of the missiles.

    The exchange of blows, which ended in a clear defeat of the United States, raises the wrath of President Trump, who orders to inflict a massive missile and bomb attack on Russian military targets in Syria. US troops deal a combined strike using cruise missiles and aircraft. In the first wave of impact, 500 Tomahawk cruise missiles fired from two submarines from the Central Mediterranean and four cruisers from the Red Sea. The task of this strike is to disable the Russian and Syrian air defense system in Syria.

    Since the Russian aviation in Syria was in the constant patrolling mode after the conflict began, the launching of American missiles is immediately detected by means of air reconnaissance. Having determined the massive nature of the strike, the Russian military command decides not to counter the enemy’s cruise missiles, to raise all combat aircraft in the air, to disperse assault planes and bombers on highways, and to withdraw the S-400 and S-300 complexes to spare positions. The Syrian side does the same.

    At the same time mobile complexes of electronic warfare Rubella-4 and Borisoglebsk-2 are being activated.

    As a consequence, the American blow has only a limited effect. During the attack, military airfields are destroyed, including their runways and hangars, stationary radar and Syrian fixed air defense systems S-200 and C-125, and also a dozen old aircraft remaining at the airfields. At the same time, Syrian mobile air defense of the S-75 Dvina, Buk and Cube remained unscathed, as well as Russian S-300s and S-400s and recently transferred to Syria and well-disguised Tor-M2 and Buk-M3.

    This second wave begins almost simultaneously with the first. It includes fighter jets and fighter bombers of the United States and Great Britain – British Tornado, American F-16, F-15, and 10 newest F-22s, a total of 200 aircraft. This aviation armada is escorted by two Boeing E-3 “Sentry” aircraft and three EA-18 “Growler”. The task of this stage of the attack is to finish off mobile air defense systems and aircraft that survived and were dispersed outside the airfields.

    The attack is coordinated in such a way that all aircraft arrive in the combat area almost simultaneously. The first group takes off from the air bases “Al-Udeid” (Qatar), “Sheikh-Isa” (Bahrain) and “El Khobar” (Saudi Arabia) and flies with refueling to the borders of Syria. They immediately join the second group from the air base “Al-Jaber” in Kuwait. When they approach the Syrian airspace, American airplanes from the Incirlik base (Turkey) rise into the air, and British Tornados take off from air bases in Cyprus.

    The Anglo-American air armada is opposed by 4 Su-35, 6 Su-30SM and 2 T-50, as well as 11 Syrian MiG-25 and 30 MIG-29, with a total of 67 planes. They are supported by two radio-electronic aircraft based on SU-34, one ARL-50 aircraft and two refueling tankers that can only interact with Russian aircraft. Syrian aircraft is not equipped with refueling system, and their time in the air is limited. But they do not need it. The Syrians have a simple, but deadly task – to divert the bulk of enemy aircraft and give Russian fighters time to hit the most valuable targets, that is, two AWACS and “Growler” aircraft.

    At the very beginning of the battle, our T-50 and Su-35, without engaging in battle with enemy aircraft and in radio silence mode, immediately rush to intercept these targets. Two SU-34s interfere with American aircraft, making it difficult to find ours. Ground-based EW systems help them from below. As a result, even in the first minutes of the battle, our aircraft, using long-range missiles RVV-BD, destroy “Sentry” and “Growlers.”

    The Americans, in turn, shoot down our A-50 and two Su-34s. At the same time, air tankers manage to escape into Iranian airspace. At this stage, the F-22, without the support of the AEW, are forced to leave the radio silence mode and lose their stealth.

    At that point Russian ground-based air defense systems enters battle.

    The air battle lasts about an hour. In its course, almost all Russian planes are downed. Only two T-50 survive, which land on an Iranian airfield near Tabriz. Syrian aviation loses 35 aircraft, the remaining sit on the highway. The S-400, S-300 and two Buk-M3 complexes were destroyed by the enemy. At the same time, the enemy loses 180 aircraft, including half of the F-22. He also loses pilots, as catapulting pilots are immediately taken prisoner on Syrian territory. The remaining planes hardly reach Cyprus. The loss of the personnel of our air defense systems is 30 people. Syria mobile air defense systems do not participate in this battle. Although they were recently modernized by the Russian side, their effectiveness in combating modern enemy attack aircraft is not high enough, and they were preferred to be retained for solving more lighter tasks.

    After suffering heavy losses, the Americans, however, do not stop fighting and move on to the third wave of the attack. At approach, the heavy bombers B-52, taking off from the air bases of Diego Garcia and from the British Mildenhall. Their task is to deal a final blow to the remnants of Russian and Syrian aviation and pave the way for the methodical destruction of Syria’s military infrastructure and armed forces. In total, 60 heavy bombers, accompanied by 20 F-16 fighters and two flying tankers participate in the raid.

    At that time, 20 Russian Su-27s and 10 MIG-29s, which were transferred from Mozdok immediately after the start of the US air operation against Syria, are already concentrated at the Iranian airbase near Tabriz. While they refuel and prepare for battle, 60 B-52 bombers burst into the Syrian sky. They immediately run against the fire of Syrian air defense systems “Dvina”, “Buk” and “Cube”, which beat them even during the Vietnam War. Bombers start to fall like candles. The fighters are trying to attack ground-based air defense systems, but at that moment 30 fresh Russian Su-27 and MIG-29 fighters fly from the territory of Iran, and simply blow the American air armada away.

    Meanwhile, immediately after the first wave of American strikes against Syria, Russian missile boats in the Caspian and corvettes and frigates on the Black Sea launch 300 Caliber-3M1 missiles at American airfields in the Middle East region – Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia. The Yasen submarine from the Indian Ocean fires another 20 Calibres at the airbase on Diego Garcia. Most of the remaining aircraft in these airbases destroyed, the runway is damaged, the radar is disabled. The United States can no longer raise aviation in support of its bombers. And two Iskander launchers strike an instant blow at British airfields in Cyprus, blowing them to pieces.

    Russia does not attack only the Turkish base “Incirlik” counting to reach an agreement with Ankara peacefully. However, the remaining there 15 American fighters are not enough to win an air battle over Syria. The battle is gradually dying out. Virtually all bombers over Syria are destroyed, only two of them manage to escape, entering Turkish airspace.

      Kudos for the powerful and gripping prediction of WW3 in the near future!

      If President Putin would just do what I’ve recommended LONG AGO, he would have the unbeatable and ultimate ace card to play in Part I. And the story would end early.

      Instead of firing upon the two cruisers, Putin orders the elite assassination team into action. By now, the teams have been in place for years now and always know the location of their targets: the ZOG-NATO billionaires.

      Washington is temporarily puzzled at the lack of Russian military response… until the news comes in of 200 DEAD BILLIONAIRES and more such news rapidly filling the queue.

      Back channel communications go straight to President Trump, which declares that EVERY NATO BILLIONAIRE WILL BE EXTERMINATED unless the U.S. stands down and stops this aggression. Putin’s assassins already know every bunker, vacation home, yacht, and Lear Jet. Most have already been hit and others have assassins awaiting their targets at such places.

      The phones to Congress are jammed with surviving billionaires and their lawyers. Some are demanding to nuke Russia and some are pleading for President Trump to stand down, just to save their own hides.

      Putin sees the indecision gradually trending towards the deaths of billions; all because of what the billionaires have put into motion and cannot back away from. Putin does the equivalent of dropping the two atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He orders the destruction of the Rothschilds and Rockefellers. Including the destruction of their mansions, yachts, and other such property.

      Those two atomic hits completely take out ZOG-NATO’s authority to act, just as a king’s ministers have no power to act without his signature and seal. ZOG-NATO loses its chess queen and is checkmated in one move.

      Better for a few hundred billionaires to die than for billions. It’s just that simple.

      But make no mistake – that ain’t, and ain’t never going to be, a woman.

Sitting between Joy Behar and Whoopie Goldstein, Caitlyn looked swell and at home in hir element. Gesticulating with hands that could palm a basketball; enough hairspray on the extensions to choke Harvey Fierstein; and plenty of glam makeup to give the soon to be 68 “ingenue” the “What Ever Happened To Baby Jane” Bette Davis glow.

    “It was a police officer who worked for the city who actually removed Dao from the aircraft. The officer has since been suspended.”

    The officer should be in prison for assault. The officer violated his oath, his training, and used violence against a passenger who was cilvil, a passenger who was not belligerent… a passenger who represented no threat to anyone.

    Until officers are punished with time in prison they will continue to engage in brutal, inhumane, illegal behavior toward nonviolent unarmed civilians. The airline and the city should pay more than one million dollars for police brutality.

    World Revolution, Clinton’s super bowl and 20 trillion of unsecured dollars

    First of all, what is a revolution and how does it differ from a coup? A revolution can mean two completely different things:

    1. A complete change of the elite, that is, those 100 thousand vacancies, usually formed as a result of the resettlement of the former elites, either to remote and secure locations, or to a better world.

    2. A fundamental change in the socio-political structure of society

    The Great French Revolution, along with the Great October Socialist Revolution, combined both options, but the end of the 20th century showed that the first option is not necessarily related to the second.

    For example, the disintegration of the USSR led to a fundamental change in the socio-political structure of society, while the Soviet nomenklatura either stayed in its offices, or moved to the next floor, often becoming the owners of those enterprises that it had previously ruled as Soviet communist bosses.

    Similar processes have occurred in other countries of the socialist bloc, and the fact that these revolutions later turned out to be a victory in the Cold War, in my opinion, quite clearly speaks of the conspiracy of socialist nomenclatures with the Western elites: “We give you our country, and you help us become owners of everything there…”

    A decisive role in this mutually sweet process was played by a printing press, which at the time of the orgasm of privatization turned not only into a real philosopher’s stone, but also into a financial endorphin.

    And in anticipation of dollar trade in the largest piece of real estate in the world, the financial orgasm has reached such a level that in the era of the Clinton super bowl, it was rumored that more than 20 trillion dollars of unsecured dollars were printed, just to express delight at possessing such a wonderful geopolitical partner.

    And then came Putin and spoiled everything.

    Returning to the real world was excruciating, endorphic starvation simply unbearable, and after Bush, instead of butting with Putin, discovered the soul in his eyes and together they tried not only to slow down the printing press, but also to remove from the body of the world the toxic products of the decay of these 20 trillion dollars, the Transatlantic Virtual was hammered in convulsions and proclaimed the slogan “endorphins or death.”

    Well fed on Russia, which in his opinion was doomed to die as a result of the demographic catastrophe, the Transatlantic Virtual turned into a virtual bull and prepared to kidnap the invitingly spread Europe.
    But at that moment the Texas cowboy Bush grabbed the bull by the horns and not only chopped off the Clinton’s penis MCIWorldcom, which was turning into “Information superhighway” in the excited state, but also castrated the Global Virtual, ruthlessly cutting off the testicles of Alan Greenspan’s creative financial tools. Meanwhile, it was precisely these organs that produced not only financial endorphins, but also financial testosterone of the trans-Atlantic bull.

    In addition, the fighters for the freedom of Bosnia, Kosovo, Chechnya, Afghanistan, etc., who lost financial endorphins, went for the “international terrorism” because of lasting abstinence, trying to force another dose. This conflict led not only to the paroxysm of withdrawal syndrome in al-Qaeda 911, but also caused the Clintonoids to first accuse Bush of excesses of abstinence, and then, using controlled media, to mix Bush’s brilliant victory in Iraq with shit, turning it into defeat.

    Meanwhile, Bush with the help of Iraqi oil from the West Qurna field was going to stimulate the growth of the US economy during the transition period of sterilization of surplus dollar mass and control inflation if Clintonoids, including Chinese and European, begin to translate these 20 trillion into material values.

    The fact is that the capitalist system does not provide for other ways to destroy already printed money, other than inflation, and Bush, representing the interests of the real sector of the American economy, began printing dollars, simply in order to reduce the relative influence of Clintonoid money invested in stock markets NASDAQ and AMEX, which by that time were already tightly controlled by the Bush Securities Commission.

    Moreover, he damped the negative consequences of this policy, which led to an increase in the price of oil to $140 a barrel by increase in global production by 20%, while cheapening the goods in the US by increasing imports from China and tying the money that were leaving stock markets by building a mortgage pyramid.

    That is, in every possible way stimulating investment in real estate and housing construction on the principle of “the dollar could collapse, but the houses will remain, even if at some point they lose their solvent owners.”

    Such a cool guy this Texas cowboy from Yale.

Not to say that the Shrub wasn’t a numb nut of the highest order – of course he was! – but he was HARDLY the mastermind behind such shenanigans.

      Modern cars are much more expensive to repair due to the way they are manufactured. Many formally simple components are buried within the engine compartment, integrated with other components and they are all now filled with sensors which can cause problems themselves.

      If the simple water pump is run off the timing belt; that could be 5 hours labor?

      In addition, all those sensors are useless if you can’t read the codes?

      You can get them bootleg; but the manufacturers keep changing them in order to force you to go to the “stealership” for all your repairs.

      The days of car repairs being “fuel, air or spark” are over.

      Thats why I ride a mini bike.

          grammar police calling…..we want our Q-Tip back!!!

          why so much time spend on grammar???

          perhaps time better spend in pursuit of you illusive “bearded clam”.

          that ok.

          let not you heart be troubled.

          may God be with you.

    As we get deeper and deeper into one of JHK’s semi-weekly reflecting pools, I wonder if it’s not appropriate to pause for a moment and take note of where we’ve been already with a brief musical interlude:

      And yet..

      I wonder
      Why, why, why, why, she went away
      And, I wonder
      Where she will stay-ay-ay
      My little run away
      Run, run, run, run away
      Run, run, run, run away
