No More Russian Dressing For You!

Whoever is behind “Joe Biden” has done all they can to derail American Life, and the feckless leadership of Euroland has also seemed avid to trash its future. There is a welling movement, in America, at least, to resist all that, to sweep these degenerates out of power….

Say what you will about Russia’s Cleanup-in-Aisle-Four operation in Ukraine. It sure changed the subject from the murderous Covid-19 madness — cooked up by political therapists who have all the answers for our salvation — to the hard realities of power politics. And at just the right time, too, as ever more hard data leaks through the bastions of captured corporate media to morally indict the criminal public health establishment and their elected enablers throughout Western Civ.

In other words, the whole Covid story was falling apart. Though the CDC and the FDA were hiding and fudging all their numbers as best they could, the insurance actuaries and the humble morticians had no such inhibitions about reporting an upsurge in strange deaths. Whistles were blowing over the botched Pfizer approval trials. The world was beginning to grok how dishonest, deadly, and sinister the whole Covid caper really was — from the engineered and patented origins of the disease, to the lethal mechanisms of the “vaccines”— when it became necessary to divert the world’s attention. Plus, the oaf Justin Trudeau badly tipped his hand on the West’s tilt into tyranny… and now American truckers were revving up their convoys… someone, please, do something! Get Russia back in the center ring!

And so, the floundering establishment activated the still-potent workings of mass formation to fire up what looked like Act One of World War Three. Forgive me for saying what I will about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The US authorities wanted it. They set it up nakedly by replaying the Cuban Missile Crisis in reverse, and they refused to negotiate in good faith as to their using Ukraine as a forward base for NATO on Russia’s border. The Russians couldn’t have been plainer about their intentions. They’ve been telling the US to keep Ukraine neutral for over a decade, to not outfit the place for military shenanigans. What part of that did America not understand? Every part, apparently — and on-purpose.

It raises the question, of course, as to whether we actually have an interest in that faraway land. I think the answer is: not hardly, except as a utensil of control and antagonism against Russia. As to the people of Ukraine, let’s be honest: we put them in harm’s way, and then we cried crocodile tears over them — most mawkishly in the increasingly bizarre ritual we call the State of the Union Message. All those yellow and blue lapel pins and fashion accessories. What bathetic pretense.

Who in the US government, from our founding in 1789 to 1991 — while Ukraine was part of Russia in one way or another — gave a passing thought to Ukraine? Answer: nobody. And then, after the crack-up of the USSR, Ukraine was “in play,” culminating in the 2014 CIA-sponsored “color revolution” that ousted then-president Viktor Yanukovych, who was inclined to join Russia’s Eurasian Customs Union of trade relations rather than the US wished-for NATO or EU. And ever since then it has been one American intrigue after another — including a brisk trade in grift and bribery by the Biden family, the Clinton syndicate, the next-gen of Kerrys, and other entitled elites from over here selling their influence.

And now the economic sanctions on Russia, which are sure to blow back on the countries issuing them. Europe has to pretend that it doesn’t need Russian oil and gas, that it doesn’t need cheap uranium to run their nuke power plants, that they don’t need the Baikonur Cosmodrome to launch their satellites, and so on. More likely, these moves will accelerate the collapse of Western Civ’s banking system, stock and bond markets, and erode the US dollar’s role as the global reserve currency — a longstanding “exorbitant privilege” for getting stuff from all over the world in exchange for promises to pay some Tuesday in the distant future.

The reader may ask: why does this blog appear to take Russia’s side in the current conflict against the US and our supposed allies? Answer: Why would you trust a government (ours) and its captive news media after years of their blatant lying and tyrannical over-reach? These parties appear to be at war against their own people, that is, against us — certainly more than Russia is. Especially in the historic moment when all our mendacious “narratives” are being exposed as false? Russian Collusion? Indictments underway and more to follow. Covid-19? A mega-crime of mass homicide spawned by a matrix of pharmaceutical racketeers, corrupt government officials, and accomplice news organizations. Stolen elections? Don’t, for Gawd’s sake, even try looking at the slime trail of evidence. I won’t bother listing the many transgressions of Wokery against our culture and history. And all of a sudden, it appears a lot of American citizens have had enough of being fucked around. I’m with them.

Now consider this: What if it turns out that Russia can complete its Cleanup-in-Aisle-Four operation relatively quickly, with a minimized loss of life and damage to the everyday infrastructure of Ukraine, and arrange things there afterward so that Ukraine is not a menace to anyone, either Russia or the West? I sincerely believe this is their intention — just as I sincerely believe that their leadership is actually sane, and ours appears not to be. Perhaps Russia will even offer Ukraine (or its re-arranged regions) assistance in recovering from the foolishness it played along with to its own sorrow? What if Russia actually has no intention of starting World War Three? Will we keep trying to start it anyway?

Whoever is behind “Joe Biden” has done all they can to derail American Life, and the feckless leadership of Euroland has also seemed avid to trash its future. There is a welling movement, in America, at least, to resist all that, to sweep these degenerates out of power, and make a concerted course correction in the direction of sanity, rectitude, liberty, and generosity of spirit toward each other. An awful lot of trouble has already been set in motion by the idiots running things. There is a difficult slog ahead. Is your head screwed on? Where will you stand?

    You, we are not taking Russia’s side, we are clearly standing for Truth and the truth is that our government spooks have been murdering and pillaging every nation out there that they can in order to reap profit for the wealthy masters that rule the planet. The fact that Americans allow and accept this practice make us accountable as well and therefore liable to receive the “rewards” for what surely will come our way and soon too it looks like.

    Prepare for blastoff people. Judgment is upon us.

    • shotho March 4, 2022 at 10:05 am #

      I would like to stand with truth and I believe you speak the truth, Mr. K. It’s sad indeed when you disbelieve your nation’s leaders more than those of Russia, but the propaganda from the West is too crude and monolithic to suggest anything else. When you think of Putin and Xi juxtaposed against the sclerotic leadership of the West, it’s clear to see the future. Maybe the next election cycle will provide us some hope. In the meantime, we can watch Putin’s plan unfold.

      • Walter B March 4, 2022 at 10:46 am #

        During the four years of Donald Trump’s presidency, half of the people in our nation hated and tormented him and were convinced that he was incompetent and evil. After a year of Dopey Joe, it is clear that he may or may not be incompetent, but he is clearly incapable of even trying to pretend that he can serve this nation in the position that he was placed in. I cannot believe that anyone at all can honestly say that he is otherwise, except of course for those who are pulling the strings which keep him from collapsing on the floor like the lifeless marionette that he has become.

        It is also difficult for me at least to understand how anyone in America can tolerate the first person in the Oval Office that is and has been being paid for services rendered (along with his demented son) by America’s top two rivals, China and Russia (at least Ukraine).

        Of course, in a nation where so many of its people would say “Good for him, if I could get away with it I would too and so would you”, I guess blatant corruption has simply become an acceptable way of doing business.

        When you replace God with money, anything goes and nothing really matters as long as it puts cash in your pocket as a reward.

          “I guess blatant corruption has simply become an acceptable way of doing business.” ~ Walter

          Yes Walter – one of life’s indisputable truths, “What we allow becomes acceptable”.

          We look the other way, and allow the grift…

          • justanotherguy March 4, 2022 at 12:26 pm #

            this corruption… game theory anyone?

            not only has this wag the dog latest installment pivoted everyone who “matters” away from the c19 debacle, the dollar mess, the parent terrorists,

            it has also turned everybody to right of marx into arguing disagreement.

            squirrel! very useful squirrel.

          • Blackbird March 4, 2022 at 1:29 pm #

            But we aren’t looking the other way. We (well, at least the “we” that hang out here) are looking at the grift, but there is nothing we can do to stop it. Meanwhile, the grifters have all the power to stop an investigation into their rackets.

          • Walter B March 4, 2022 at 1:31 pm #

            Yes Blackbird, Dr. David Martin made a great point of how the corruption has been allowed to go unstopped and unpunished. The purchase of the judicial arm of our government was his point and it clearly is what has happened.

          • Ron Anselmo March 4, 2022 at 2:32 pm #

            Blackbird – your words are uncharacteristically defeatist for you. Hang in there man. We CAN stop it – we just don’t have the will (read balls) to stop it, yet. We still have too much to lose.

            After we’ve watched them take everything, and we have nothing left to lose or take, then we’ll stop it. The solution is simple – take out the grifters – and I don’t mean politically.

            Cheer up man – we have the power – just need the will.

          • Blackbird March 4, 2022 at 5:07 pm #

            Ron, “uncharacteristically defeatist”? You may be mistaking me for an optimist I never was. That said, I don’t consider myself a defeatist or a pessimist either. I consider myself a realist, and I consider our reality very bleak.

            How do we, “the people”, stop the corruption?

            The Biden influence pedaling in the Ukraine. The Durham “investigation”. Blatant corruption and treachery, obvious for anyone to see. Consequences? None.

            We can write to our congresscritters. We can vote. We can get in our cars and convoy to DC. We can yell and scream and hold our breath until we pass out. What’s gonna happen? We get branded as criminals, even terrorists.

            We can’t de-person them. We can’t shut off access to their bank accounts. We can’t block them from social media. We can’t arrest them. We can’t confiscate their assets. They can, and will, do all of the above to us.

          • shotho March 4, 2022 at 5:09 pm #

            I’ve been doing business in Ukraine for the last 22 years and you have no idea of the depth of corruption there. You simply don’t do business there unless you’re willing to ‘pay the man’. It’s simply looked on as another layer of tax and it goes all the way to the top. Mr. Zelenskyy, the raunchy transvestite, is now a very rich man.

          Hell Trump was just as bad as the rest of them, he did what he was supposed to do and that was to take care of the 1%. First it was the huge tax break he gave them, then it was the trillions he dumped in the stock market for them, while that little tax break he gave the working class was gobbled up by the tariffs he put on China. When people get it through their heads that capitalism is just bad as any other ism why then perhaps that may change, but I wouldn’t hold my breath on it for the two party system will take care of that.

    • DrTomSchmidt March 4, 2022 at 10:44 am #

      That really is the issue, Walter. The enemy of my enemy is… well, not an ally, but a help. The biggest threat to my life now seems to be not terrorists, nor Russia, nor China, but the people who provoked a war that could go hot down in DC. Russia: nuke DC, not the rest of us, and we will probably forgive you. If Lot bargained for DC, and God promised not to destroy it for there being even 2 good men in the city, a smoking hole would soon ensue.

      “They set it up nakedly by replaying the Cuban Missile Crisis in reverse”

      One thing people forget about the CMC: we had placed missiles in Turkey that Russia wanted gone. The Russians put missiles in Cuba, and JFK “forced” them to back down. Of course, as part of their agreement to remove the Cuban missiles, we removed the ones from Turkey. Both sides got what they wanted; JFK got to look like a tough guy who backed down the Soviets; and the Soviets removed the threat of first-strike decapitation, which is what they cared about.

        I gpt this from Orlove just now. A copy of the official Ukrainian document was included in the email. Here is his translation:

        This official Ukrainian document has just surfaced. Here is my translation of it (from Ukrainian):

        From: Secretary of the National Security Council of Ukraine
        To: Minister of Community and Territorial Development Chernyshev A.M.
        Dear Alexei Mikhailovich!
        I wish to inform you, that based on the situation on March 4, 2022, more than 40% of the territory of Ukraine is occupied and controlled by divisions of the Armed Forces of Russia.
        Civilian population is continuing to hastily flee the country (based on the situation on March 4, 2022, more than 180 thousand persons).
        More than 75% of the military potential of the Ukrainian Armed Forces has been destroyed.
        There is a sharp conflict between “Azov” [Nazi—translator’s note] battalions and the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The nationalist battalion no longer obeys orders.
        We do not expect any real military help for Ukraine from the side of NATO.
        In consideration of the above, I ask you to attend a closed extraordinary meeting…
        /Signed/ Alexei Danilov
        Make of it what you will, but I have a feeling that lots of people are going to start making bets on when the Ukrainian regime is going to capitulate.

        • abbybwood March 4, 2022 at 1:39 pm #

          Plus the United States has anywhere from 15-37 Bioweapons Labs operating in Ukraine and Putin knows where every single one is.

          I hope while he’s at it he destroys all of them.

          • draupnir March 4, 2022 at 2:15 pm #

            Including some that were reportedly working on developing airborne rabies. I have heard taking out those sites were a top priority of Putin’s. No wonder the DS is having such a fit–all their lovely toys destroyed. Then, of course, there’s the money-laundering capability and aledged child trafficking operations gone kaput. I guess they’ll have to move their operations to Africa, unless the Chinese have it all wrapped up. These aree truely evil people.

            I saw a short video on bitchute yesterday where a young Ukranian soldier had surrenderedd to the Russians. It looked like he was in the care of their version of the Red Cross. He was given a hot drink and hot food, and one of the women used her cell phone to call his mother. He cried.

          • Alzaebo March 4, 2022 at 7:58 pm #

            “working on developing airborne rabies.”

            Then Putin is fulfilling Fatima’s prophecy. And I’m not even a Christian.

          • Jarek March 4, 2022 at 10:19 pm #

            Both sides are using the milk, cookies, and mom tactic to make the prisoners look weak.

            Some woman wrote to Vonnegut about his Dresden novel and just shouted “Babies, they were all babies”. He should have just told her to shut up. The only reason women have anything is because of the conquests of their men. At least clever women want to keep their men strong, even if they don’t care about them.

          • draupnir March 5, 2022 at 4:40 pm #

          Dmitri Orlov has one of the sharpest and most incisive pens on the entire internet. If you want to guarantee that your name will be at the top of the list for interment in the Utah concentration camps, just sign up to read him at Club Orlov.

          What is the goal of American policy in Ukraine? (yes, there is a goal, don’t let their choice of a senile old grifter as figurehead fool you)

          Prior to Russia invading and taking charge of events, the American goal was to integrate Ukraine into NATO and station missiles along the border five minutes from Moscow. The second goal was to provide cover for expanding the economic war against Russia and to stop the EU and Germany in particular from building closer links to its natural trading partner.

          What a difference a week makes! War has shifted the goal posts. Now the goal of American policy is to create a quagmire to trap Russia into a long guerilla conflict with the fighters of the Azov battalions who love nothing better than to engage in genocide of any civilians who speak with the slightest hint of a Russian accent. The longer the slaughter goes on the more time for economic warfare to isolate Russia from all the vassal states of the EU. I’d wager that Right Sector leaders and their American advisors made it very clear to acting President Volodymyr Zelenskyy that should he attempt to seriously sue for peace his life expectancy would be measured in days or minutes.

          Russia may have dreamed that a Shock & Awe blitzkrieg would produce a rapid surrender and the ability to achieve their goals of de-militarization, de-Naziification, and Ukrainian neutrality, The war was basically over on the first day, complete air and naval superiority attained, air fields bombed, command and communications disabled. Any rational national leader would try to negotiate to retain as much of his national sovereignty as possible while granting the security needs of the victor. But a negotiated settlement is not in line with American policy, and a few hundred thousand souls lost in the quagmire suits them perfectly as it does for the wolves of the Azov who glory in the taste of blood and veins in their teeth.

          The American propaganda system is so complete that they can photoshop images from decades-old conflicts with impunity, and the COVID Fear-conditioned populace will accept them without question. So they report that the massive Russian convoy has stalled 20 miles north of Kiev, apparently out of fuel (or perhaps vodka). This from an army that has in its history a winter time retreat almost to the gates of Moscow and the cost of millions of lives. Russia man have a shortage of many things, but transport fuel is not one of them.

          Reports on the ground from Kiev point to a puzzling scene. Cars driving around, electricity functioning normally, water and sewer systems operating. Sounds of bombing and fighting in the distance, but little direct action in the city itself. Doesn’t sound like a city under siege. Could it be that Putin is deliberately holding back in an attempt to shelter the civilian population from the horrors of block to block bombing and fighting? If you are going to occupy the country and enforce de-militarization it is far better to have a compliant populace than an active resistance.

          The second “mystery” is why Putin makes no move to deploy the King and Queen that he holds in his hand. Russian NG continues to flow through Ukrainian pipelines where it earns transit fees for the very government they are at war with. Once it exits into Poland it goes to Germany to keep industry rolling and heat homes throughout the remainder of the winter. This is to help the same German government that just torpedoed a multi billion dollar Russian/German pipeline designed to provide secure low cost Russian gas to Germany for years in the future. And is sending thousands of anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles to Ukraine to challenge the current Russian air and ground dominance. Almost looks like Putin is willing to accept minor roadblocks along the way to eventual victory in Ukraine for a near future where Germany and Russia are joined at the hip through energy and the dysfunctional EU and US/NATO are in self-induced decline.

          I’m not sure that my simplification of a complex situation with decades or centuries old roots constitutes Ocam’s Razor, but it is useful to go to the roots before trying to sort through all the propaganda that flies around war.

          • draupnir March 4, 2022 at 6:36 pm #

            I’ve been on that list for years. It’s good to read something from a less than hysterical observer. I prefer a less emotional analysis. I believe nothing the MSM says. I read Al Jazeera too, as I like to see a perspective that is not western. If I were China, I’d take this opportunity to grab Tiawan. Now would also be an excellent time for Kim Jong Un to start lobbing missiles around. What about that trucker convoy. I hear it’s 10,000 vehicles strong, extending 70 miles. So many balls in the air!

      • beantownbill. March 4, 2022 at 1:12 pm #

        I forgot about the missiles in Turkey and you are 100% correct.

        • SpeedyBB March 4, 2022 at 2:57 pm #

          Yes, btb, liquid-fueled Jupiters in Turkey. And they had reportedly already become obsolete, even before the Cuban gefuffle. So Kennedy’s “removing them” as a token of accommodation for the Soviets was no big deal. He did ask all concerned to keep it “…our little secret…” however.

          • beantownbill. March 4, 2022 at 3:05 pm #

            Yeah, I would guess it helped allay the Soviets’ fears that we were threatening them with missiles near their borders. Gee, where have I heard that before?

          • Alzaebo March 4, 2022 at 7:34 pm #

            We “removed” them…by putting them on submarines, kept cruising around the Bosphorus entrance to the Black Sea.

            So I was told by a submariner who had served on one of those subs as late as 1979.

            That’s probably why Turkey was invited into NATO, and assisted us in Vietnam, who was a Russian client.

          • pyrrhus March 5, 2022 at 2:25 pm #

            Both sides traded tokens, since the Soviets didn’t really want to deal with a few missiles in Cuba…and we came close to nuclear war before the trade finally happened…

      • Walter B March 4, 2022 at 11:10 am #

        In the history of mankind there is one group that has always been and always will be the perpetrators of murders and on a mass basis and they are the governments of every nation ever created. Our own government is very good at it too. Barry Obama once decried the fact that he was very good at murdering people with drones and Hilliary bragged about murdering Kaddafi. Sorry.

            I wonder how Edward Snowden, his wife and child are doing in Moscow?

            I hope he is busy writing another book.

            That whole incident with Russia giving a safe place to live to Snowden after he revealed massive NSA spying on the American people is a major thorn in the U.S. elites sides.

            Assange should be living in Moscow too.

          Grozny Chechen’s were another Contra paramilitaies staging base.

          12,000 Chechens volunteered in Grozny, last week, to help Putin- because he cleared the gangsters out .

          This is what it would look like if America decided to clear the Cartel out of Mexico- pretending, of course, that it wasn’t Pappy Bush and Salinas who put them there in the first place.

        Well, if you want to play whatabout, how about those we are holding in Guantanamo, withoiut bringing charges against them?

        What about the recent SCOTUS decision that exculpatory evidence cannot be aired because “national security”?

        What about our own journalists and politicians, such as Gary Webb, Paul Wellstone, Michael Name Escapes Me, and others?

        What about the Native Americans?
        What about Hiroshima?
        What about what about what about . .

        NB: It is our OWN actions as a nation and those of our politicians that we are responsible for. It is not our job to be global playground monitors “punishing” other countries for actions that, in any event, we make a point of not even trying to comprehend.

        It is the hypocrisy and self-righteousness that stinks to high heaven and that nauseates the rest of the world.

        Putin referred to the Grozny situation in his speech, laying the blame where it clearly lies, on US support for the terrorists in Chechnya.
        It was a difficult fight to get them out, but they did.
        The US also supports jihadist terrorists in other countries, as they did in Afghanistan.
        The terrorists in Syria have killed half a million people, but I’m sure that zekesdad, steeped as he is in msm propaganda, thinks that those deaths are a good thing.
        The US is occupying 30% of Syrian land and is stealing their oil, but I’m sure that zekesdad also approves of that.
        Julian Assange, still atlive but being tortured, instead of being killed like Michael Hasting, Danny Casalaro, Gary Webb, Dorothy Kilgalen, and many more, can sneer at zekesdad for pretending to care about journalists in Russia’s health and safety.

        • Paula D March 4, 2022 at 12:02 pm #

          My friend in Russia answered the bullshit about “dead journalists”.
          “One thing that is really apparent once you get outside of the bubble of western European and North American “news” is that other regions get it all, much more than what is seen in the west. For example, everyone in the UK and US is sure they know the most complete story and all others just get propaganda. That becomes quite obviously not the case once outside of those regions.
          A good example is a universal assumption in UK and US that Putin is a dictator, and thug who murders everyone who criticizes him. Russians don’t believe it because they see not only the western version and the Russian news that has major coverage of business and political crimes.
          Every single death of politicians or the journalists (nowhere near as many as claimed in the west) has involved investigations followed in the press, arrests, and convictions, except one. That one is still unexplained but the reporter, from 15 years ago, was murdered. The west says she was a Putin foe but her reporting was primarily corrupt businesses and she was doing a series on one particular oligarch in a southern region at the time.
          But all the others were put into context and one was a jealous husband, another minor politician was in dirty with Chechen “businessmen”, another in the UK was dealing in arms and controlled substances in the UK and had no contact in years with Russia. but no investigation for any of them was done before the press and western politicians blared headlines “Putin murdered critic”.
          If you saw TV and the range of topics and views expressed on Russian media, and no one getting upset you could see how ridiculous that western claim is.
          People just do not get worked up about someone’s opinion, it is not a scandal for an opposing view. Heck, the presidential debates featured far-right nationalists, the communist party, various liberals and a few centrists.
          Who was the main centrist? Putin. No one edits what is said on TV or in print, no one cares that much. There is none of the PC police like in the US where a single word that is currently banned can ruin a career. There is more freedom of speech because it is the nature of the society, regardless of laws…by the way, the constitution is a remarkably liberal document and it is supported. Read it, it is a pretty good representation of real Russia and very different than claimed in the west.
          Regarding Putin being a dictator, that is nonsense, the same way FDR was not a dictator although Republicans claimed he was. You stabilize a horrible situation and greatly grow the economy and increase personal security and economic mobility, and invest heavily in infrastructure that improves everyone’s life and boosts pensions 1000% over 8 years, and incomes 500% while cutting inflation from 80% to 2% and any president will be very popular.
          I have lived through these changes and it is remarkable how it has transformed the society. It is also misreading of the government structure to claim anyone is a dictator, there are too many divisions that have a say. Putin gets a consensus by being a mediator and drawing on the best plans from some very bright people in government. He is balancing diverse views.
          One of the problems with the democracy here is that it is TOO open. There are too many parties so none can generate enough support to dominate. Putin is not in any party. He was in United Russia but quite saying it was not in the country’s interests to have the president representing a party when that office has the entire country as the constituency, and he needs to represent everyone. The more people know about the facts, the most popular he is, and the most rabid Putin foes in the west are the least knowledgeable about how the country works, its wide up democracy, and how spread out power is.”

          • C.O.Jones March 4, 2022 at 12:18 pm #

            A few years ago, I spent a week in Russia and was amazed at how popular Putin was. I encountered a couple of older people who missed “Uncle Joe” as they referred to Stalin and his communism but everyone under the age of 60 was pro Putin. Most Russians don’t speak English but with my rudimentary Russian, I ascertained the reason for his popularity was that he was in favor of the Russian people.

            I left thinking the United States needs someone as pro US as Putin is pro Russia.

          • Islander March 4, 2022 at 1:01 pm #

            Thanks, Paula!

            I hope your friend in Russia will continue to send dispatches so you can share them with us.

            I too have a friend in Russia, and his comments always offer valuable perspective. Of course, I ASK HIM what he thinks about this and that. He knows that I genuinely want to understand the situation and learn.
            He is highly educated. Recently I asked him what he thought of Sergei Glaznyev, one of Russia’s top economic advisers. I had listened to a speech of Glaznyev’s that he had made back in 2015. It was startlingly prescient. About Glaznyev my friend wrote:

            “Sergei Glazyev was absolutely correct in his characteristics of the Ukrainian regime and gave the prophecies that have been fulfilled. His political position at that time, as an economic advisor of Putin, with respect to Ukraine and the agreement on its association with Europe played a very important role in the events of 2013-2014.

            “I knew Sergei Glazyev since my study at the Economic faculty of Moscow University. He is of the same age as I, but he began to study at the Mechanic-mathematical faculty of the University and then he went to the Economic faculty with the loss of one year. Then he worked about 8 years at the Central Economic-Mathematical Institute of the Soviet Academy of Science where I worked, too. His office located on the same floor in this Institute as mine, and I knew him very well. He was a bright young scientist, who changed his activity and made a remarkable career at the beginning of the market reforms of the 1990s. During a year or a year and half, he was the minister of foreign trade in Yegor Gaidar’s cabinet of “young reformers”. However, Sergei Glazyev changed his mind radically with regard to these reforms in the mid of the 1990s and made a successful political career in opposition to Yeltsin. Nowadays, he is indeed the leading economist opposing the neo-liberal economic-financial block in the Russian government.”

            Of course we have been corresponding since before the Maidan, so he knows that I am not an American fool falling for all the BS.

            We must maintain as many people-to-people connections and communications as possible.

            I couldn’t believe the headlines I saw on the newspapers at the Stop&Shop today.

            Also, a lot of people still wearing their masks . . .

          • Islander March 4, 2022 at 1:06 pm #

            My friend said that support for Putin is very high. No chance of any regime change there. He also commented on Scott Ritter’s article about Putin psychosis:

            “The article about P-psychosis is excellent. The narrative of a tyranny of one man is deceitful or results from misunderstanding of reality. P is a strong national leader with a strong electoral support, but in many cases he prefers to find compromises and to behave very cautiously. Ritter Scott correctly mentions that “Russian policy is made by professional bureaucrat-specialists resident in the extremely dense permanent Russian bureaucracy”. IMO, big businesses and top politicians also take part in making Russian policy. There are limits to P’s power as well as constraints in the domestic economic and social spheres, which are taken into account in policy-making. Ritter Scott provides correct arguments that Russia’s strategic decisions are not impulsive.

            “Andrey Martyanov is very competent in geopolitics and strategical issues. However, he refers in the last video to Rostislav Ishenko (whom I respect), who appeals to the opinion pools in Ukraine, to which one should not trust much. Such pools are politically motivated and organized to demonstrate the results politically desirable for the Ukrainian regime. Moreover, almost nobody in Ukraine would now dare to reveal her/his true attitude to Russia.”

            This was written on Feb. 7.

            Thanks, Islander.
            My friend is actually from Sacramento. He got into ham radio as a child, which allowed him to communicate throughout the world, then traveled widely as an adult and decided that Russia was the best place to live.
            I guess ham radio was an early form of social media.
            That is why our ruling overlords are banning it, along with every other form of communication that doesn’t come top down from them.
            My husband just turned on Dish and found out that they have banned RT.
            I can’t believe they still have the nerve to blather on about ”freedom”’.

            No, Islander, I meant that they have banned people from social media. I am on yet another 30 day banning from facebook. It all started when Congress told social media companies to censor people, back in 2017 and facebook hired the Atlantic Council to censor. I got put into jail 3 times for sharing that photo of the Azoz group with the NATO flag and the swastika flag. The Atlantic Council doesn’t like that evidence being shared.
            I think ham radio is still a thing.

            And I see you believe America is responsible for all pollution, even though China, India, and other “emerging countries” are the actual offenders. No doubt your opinion is based in the belief that “if those Americans didn’t buy so much crap, there wouldn’t be a need for all those factories and power plants; ergo, we must destroy America to save blessed Gaeia.”. At what point did Klaus Squab first invite you to Davos to fill your mind with such elitist, self-righteous horseshit? Aggressor nations (China) will play along with the WEF to get what they want (the castration of America) in hopes their plans for global dominance will come to fruition.

            This is huge danger that “they” will push the nuclear button. To destroy Russia and steal her resources.

            This is why Putin/Russia waited as long as he did before making his demands for a new security structure, in December.

            He/Russia knew that they could now walk the talk, during the window where they have achieved superiority in weaponry.

          • Paula D March 5, 2022 at 5:48 pm #

            Islander, why did Russia invade at this time? I was as surprised as everyone else, but this report (which seems to be translated by Google) is interesting…
            “December 2021 Russia receives Ukraine’s data on NATO plans link on the territory of 4 military brigades (2 land, 1 sea, 1 air). Air brigade capable of carrying nuclear warheads.
            Agreed with the deployment of NATO troops in the summer of 2022 at the unification of the UN Security Council. Further, most likely by the end of the year, they provoked a conflict and would begin to counteract Russia with full-scale actions with the use of weapons.
            Those. it is supposed to unleash the 3rd world war with the use of weapons against Russia.
            The key role in this was assigned to the arrest of the American-controlled elite in Ukraine and the nationalists.
            In order to prevent 3 world wars and attacks on Russia using American weapons, the Russian government decided to stop this situation and restore order in Ukraine.
            The West gave information through social networks and other things that Russia attacked. They are offended that their plans were destroyed, and now Russia does not destroy the nuclear threats that exist in Ukraine and at the expense of Ukraine.
            By the way, what Putin said: the time for the warheads to fly from Kharkov to Moscow is 3 minutes, there is no time for a retaliatory strike. From the USA – 30 minutes, there is time to answer.
            Only now has it become possible to publish intelligence data on the preparation of provocations with the subsequent occurrence of a treacherous strike with the infection of the population on the territory of the LPR and DPR.
            Putin got ahead of Ukraine and accidentally saved hundreds of thousands of lives in the republics.
            A day before the start of the war against the spread of the Russian-speaking population in the Donbass, court decisions were made.
            The Ukrainian Army (APU), under pressure from the National Battalions, was preparing to launch a military rifle in the Donbass on 02/25/22.
            Vladimir Putin was literally a day ahead of the plans of Kyiv and the West, that the connections would seize the strategic initiative.
            About a week before the start of the Russian special operation, Eduard Basu reported on the interception of the map of the arrival in Donbass from the Armed Forces of Ukraine. It was clearly laid out there when long-range artillery strikes, when MLRS, when by aviation, strikes by the operational tactical group (OTG), respectively, “North”, “South” and “East”.
            OTG “Vostok” was supposed to act on the dissection of Donetsk and Lugansk.
            They were given three days to travel abroad, and the Yug OTG acted together with the Aidarovites, who, according to the plan, were supposed to play the role of a detachment.
            In the north, where Luhansk, the Armed Forces of Ukraine were supposed to operate under the cover of the “Right Sector”, they were supposed to meet in the Komsomolsk region south of Donetsk and cut off the LDNR from the border with Russia.
            Within two days, it is supposed to begin a “complete cleansing”.
            The emergence of Donetsk, Lugansk and several other cities is not planned to be captured for this purpose, but simply to surround and block, that is, a complete blockade is envisaged at selected points, before a “complete cleansing”.
            There is an assumption that this plan was developed jointly with the curators of the regions, because. the Americans had previously transferred about 5,000 of their soldiers to Poland, plus there was also the Polish army – they thought they had to block the Kaliningrad group processing, so that in which case it could not advance into the attacked territory of the South-East of Ukraine.
            The second grouping is a thousand soldiers of the Stryker brigade (armored vehicles) in Germany. This group blocked Transnistria in order to coordinate, penetrated there, through the South it was not possible to advance to Odessa.
            This was all an expected set of actions that were to begin on the night of February 24-25.
            coverage, the action of Ukraine’s Armed Forces was only one day ahead.”

            Putin is known for having stated:
            If there is going to be a conflict, strike first.

            That is what he did.

            all else at this point is gnashing of teeth, heard round the world.

            I am not at all surprised to hear that the Russian security services had this inside info. as to a coming attack. Also, Dumbshit VP Harris said out loud, at the Munich Conference, that she approved of Ukraine’s joining NATO.

            The way the hapless Zelensky is being built up to George Washington 2.0 is pathetic and risible, if it weren’t so scary. Do Americans know, in their self-righteous moralizing about oligarchs, that Zelensky was created by Igor Kolomoisky? Not that I approve of oligarchs, but again, the combo of ignorance, hypocrisy, and moralizing stinks to high heaven.

            The Russians made a preemptive strike. The situation was clearly very fast-moving in the run-up to the actual invasion. I, too, was surprised, as I know that Russia doesn’t “want” Ukraine. But, knowing what we now know, I see that Russia had no choice to but to stirke first.

            As for the savageness combined with pettiness (no Russia Dressing, no Russian cats!) of the West’s response is of course not just “reaction” but actual further provocations that will affect the course that the military war takes, and well as decisions Russia takes in the future not only to protect its own economy but to sink the West’s. Which IMO was not part of the original aim, although gamed out in detail.

            We really have no one else to blame except our “leaders” and those who put them on the chessboard when our economies start to grind to a halt and basics become ever more unaffordable for millions. Worse in Europe, of course. But they may see the light and beg Putin to let them, finally, sign a contract for some gas.

            Now Harris has been sent to Europe again to represent the United States.
            This is horrifying.

            I expect that the Russians are genuinely sorry for us Americans, in a way . . .

            I think that Putin stated:

            If a conflict is inevitable, strike first.

            Russia has been preparing for this for the past 8 years. It tried to head off the inevitable conflict, neutralize it, tried to appeal to common sense in the West.

            But that effort was obvioiusly getting nowhere. It came down to “Eat or be eaten.”

          To [partially] answer your question, Alzaebo:

          Those precious Washington elites may well hold shares in United Fruit (now snazzily renamed “Chiquita Brands International”.

          I mention this because that was one of the triggers that started me off on a path of doubt in the early 1960s, before which time as a frisky teenager and Cold War liberal (not to mention Air Force brat whose dad was in SAC) I did not question the innate goodness of the power brokers in Washington. Innocent, wasn’t I.

          Reading of the lethal escapades of United Fruit in Guatemala and the tragedy of President Jacobo Árbenz opened my cute little eyes. Probably Paul Krassner.

          And today, sixty plus years later, scanning the Wikipedia biography of Árbenz and poor abused Guatemala, I get angry again. United Fruit + John Foster Dulles + CIA (bre’r Allen) + the world anticommunist crusade. Sweet and evil.

      My impression is that foreign policy hardly ever arises as a debating point at US election time. Politicians get voted in or out for their domestic policies.
      One consequence of this is that it has given some dangerous lunatics (e.g. Lindsay Graham) a free rein on the international stage.
      Another is that once elected, politicians do not have a clear mandate from the people in respect of foreign policy. So they ‘ask the experts’ – i.e. the unmandated Deep State. And so we are where we are.

      • Uncle Bob March 5, 2022 at 8:52 am #

        Right. American voters may give a quick once cover regarding candidates’ foreign policy if they aren’t complete idiots, but we elect people based on their lies regarding what they’ll do for us RIGHT NOW. Government based on appeals to narcissism and lies — isn’t it great?

        BTW, Lindsay Graham is considered by many to be the best foreign policy expert in all of Congress. If Americans paid attention to foreign affairs, Graham, not Trump, would’ve been nominated in 2016, and we would’ve had the Talking Pantsuit for the last several years. Of course, if we cared about international events, we probably would’ve re-elected globalist GHW Bush, and the last 30 years would’ve been vastly different.

        Also, a few years ago the compassionate, “equal rights for all”-minded Democrats and media (same thing) went after Graham, calling him all sorts of homophobic names after someone planted the story that Graham is gay. He denied that he’s gay, but they persisted, probably because of a belief that all Southerners (especially Republicans) are gay-hating hicks and the Dems could beat him with a “traditional” candidate — you know, the kind the D’s decry for being benighted bigots. Not ironic at all, is it?

    The world was beginning to grok how dishonest, deadly, and sinister the whole Covid caper really was — from the engineered and patented origins of the disease, to the lethal mechanisms of the “vaccines”

    From where I stand, Jim (the UK) I don’t think there’s been any grokking at all. If you tried to argue the ‘vaccines’ were anything other than a miracle cure here you’d get laughed out of the room as a conspiracy theorist.

    The skepticism of their effectiveness might have increased, slightly, but no way on earth would the peeps believe they were deliberately manipulated into taking them or that they are harmful in any way.

    If Covid-22 came along next week it would play out in just the same way. Frightened sheep running everywhere. Sad to say.

        Here in Maryland, Wegmans is the supermarket for the horsey set and the McMansion managerman fools. About a mile from there stands a “Pennsylvania Dutch” market, for the peasants. I visited both today. More than half of the Wegmans clientele, and all the staff were masked. Maybe ten percent were masked in the Amish market.

      I live in the southeastern United States for now and I’m not seeing anyone grokking a darn thing except maybe they should sell their house because the price of real estate has skyrocketed. They don’t think far enough ahead to ask themselves where they would live if they sold out for huge profit. They don’t recognize that it would be exorbitantly expensive to replace the abode they just sold for 3 times what they paid for it – they see the profit and nothing else.

      JHK diagnoses the issues precisely and articulates them in an expressive and entertaining matter. He SEES things that are invisible to the sheeple and has the guts to document those things. I’ve said before, I’m a huge fan – that’s why I’m here.

      That’s also why I’m hoping I’m being shortsighted when I say Durham isn’t indicting anyone but is instead running out the clock. I don’t know anyone other than me who has expressed fatigue at being fucked around, fucked with and fucked over by the corporations that comprise the gummint.

          Buy gold.

          I recently read that gold is not a method of wealth BUILDING but of wealth PRESERVATION.

          Not sure HOW to buy gold, though.
          No matter how much I try to figure this out.

          There is some guy named David Morgan who seems to be a specialist in purchasing and storing physical gold.

          Some people saly buy jewelry and just keep it in a safe. Bury the safe. But . . . where? I live in an apartment.

            If I am allowed..

            Find the number for Liberty Coin Service or Abbott’s Coins in Michigan. They are reputable and established coin/bullion dealers.

            Call them. Tell them you want to buy and ask if they know of a reputable coin/bullion dealer near you.

            I’ve learned that these dealers often do business with out of state dealers. You want some one you can see and who sells and buys. Good luck

            Short term wealth preservation perhaps. Essentially as an escape vehicle.

            I have read that gold will go up in value when people loose faith in government. Are we currently looking at lift-off?

          • Islander March 5, 2022 at 7:30 am #


            I don’t think “short term” was the intended meaning.

            My understanding was that the price/value of gold will keep pace with inflation.

            That is why wealth PRESERVATION as opposed to wealth BUILDING (say, via investments in stock market).

          • TPTB-USA March 7, 2022 at 9:15 am #

            Pick any generational time period, and compare the gain in the POG with the DJIA, real estate, inventory, etc., and see what you come up with.

            To what extent do you think that the current money flow (escape vehicle factor) is impacting the POG, and how long might it last?

            If there are 100 people in line ahead of you at the coin shop, and the first guy cleans them out, then what?

            And what if the government outlaws the ownership of gold? If you own or trade it, that makes you a criminal.

            Think in terms of investments that can accommodate a lot of money. Bonds, stocks, and to my point, real estate. Bonds tend to be the equivalent of money, so in such a scenario, they will loose half their value. Inventory could be considered a store of value, so that may justify an investment in some stocks. Unless the rules change and real estate is damaged or confiscated, it can be considered a store of wealth (perhaps the current appreciation is such
            an example), and this investment tends to have the blessing of government due to the tax extraction.

            I think the gambit is to avoid the devaluation, and then swoop-in and buy-up the fire-sale bargains. If allowed, won’t the Chinese be in the best position to mop up the blood?

          • Paula D March 6, 2022 at 12:00 pm #

The only thing that can stop them is a fully armed citizenry, and they know it. Hence all the bullshit mass shootings, false flags, opiate crises.

          If people were really smart, they couldn’t have been so easily duped. Part of it is IQ: the White average of 100 just isn’t enough. Part of it is character: conformity is part of the average person’s makeup, often even of smart people.

          And of course our way of life is specialization, and demands that we trust other people not to harm us. This trust is often abused.

          • Slugoon March 4, 2022 at 12:32 pm #

            I don’t think it’s an IQ thing, Jar. I don’t see any relationship between IQ and being duped. It was touched on in the last blog by GA and others that it could indeed be the intellectuals that are disproportionately duped.

            Initially, I equated the willingness to mask up and get vaccinated with being pro-EU and anti-Brexit but now I’m not so sure. There is something else within our psyche at work here. The obedience to authority. The willingness to believe everything the media and government tells us.

            I’m getting the same vibes with the Ukraine situation that I did from two years of Covid. And sadly it’s making me hate my own country.

          • Jarek March 4, 2022 at 1:41 pm #

            Well dumb people are easily duped, but I admit smart people often dupe themselves for various reasons. They’re tied into the System and thus it must be wonderful! Or put negatively, they have so much to lose if they admitted the truth about it and detached from it.

            Thus Orwell’s, Only the proles are sane about the war. Or C.S Lewis’ shock on the train (he was an officer) upon being called up in WW1: None of the working class guys going in believed the anti-German propaganda. So why are they going, he thought? Because they had to, you idiot.

            It’s not the dumb people are actually smart. But smart people are often really dumb, lacking all commonsense and street smarts (knowing how much the Lie plays a part in life). The lower class has that kind of intelligence, yes.

        Total disconnect.

        Hunger is only cured by eating. Thirst is the same way. The urban dwellers are going to be in a real pinch.

        In all of the historical food shortages in our collective past, when communities had to buy food it was because they were starving.

        And we just Willy nilly go to Whole Foods and purchase organic produce and meat like it will always be there. Total fakery.

        • Mister Roboto March 4, 2022 at 10:37 am #

          Yes. Only a tiny fraction of the Ukrainian population support Nazi ideology, but in the current regime, their influence is disproportionate and they are able to operate out in the open to the extent of having a battalion in the military that uses a Nazi symbol.

          Putin is a billionaire oligarch who rules Russia with the same iron hand that successful Russian leaders historically have, but those who would compare him to Adolf Hitler just need him to be a cartoon Cold-War villain to prop up their sagging Democratic-Party worldview.

          I am also dismayed by neo-con Republicans such as Sean Hannity calling for NATO to establish a no-fly zone over Ukraine, which would certainly precipitate a civilization-ending World War III.

          • zekesdad March 4, 2022 at 11:09 am #

            The most plausible speculation is that Israel is doomed due to demographics, and is about to be evacuated.

            Egypt’s polulation:
            1948- 20 million
            2021- 104 million
            2050- 160 million

            Western Ukraine was the empire of Khazaria in the 10th century, and held for 300 years, as did Alexander’s Greek Bactria in Afghanistan.

            People complain, “Khazar theory?!
            But the king converted, is all!”

            I say, no. His guards would’ve killed him, if it were him alone.

            When Rome ended Israel as a kingdom, and leveled the former City of the Shal- it’s builders, before the Hebrews came along- they rebuilt Jer-u-Shalim as Aeolia Capitolina.

            The Jews of Israel had to go somewhere. Where did they go?

            Khazaria was not a conversion.
            It was a people coming out of hiding.

            One historic homeland is being traded for another, for the Pale.

            Jewish traders were central to the Dark Ages economy. They could go between the Viking, Persian, and Christian worlds.

            (Thus the political balance-of-power compromise at Nicea: Father, Son, Holy Ghost allowed representation of Jewish merchants, Christian cities, and pagan suppliers.)

            Later, their Ebionite or nazween movement- the violent Hebrew-speaking hotheads who wanted war with Rome, the very faction that Greco-Aramaic speaking urbanites like Jesus were contending with- converted their Hagarite brothers during their evangelistic phase.

            Borrowing a bit from Nestorian and Arianite pamphlets (Syrian Nestorians and Gothic Arianites rebelled against the Trinity doctrine), the Hagarites eventually became what we now call Islam.

            Popular stories were accumulated loosely together into what became the Q’uran; the final version, after much war, was edited by Uvalve in 333 After Hajira.

            Arab mercenaries followed Cloestes l in the Great Conquest, the war that bankrupted both Byzantium and Persia. The 4 Righteous Caliphs were generals; they murdered Cloestes and renamed the Persian conquest the Arab Conquest, and political Islam was born.

            What of mighty Khazaria?
            They had lifted their brothers by Ishmael, and were subsumed by the long war between Allah and the Roman Christians.

            Nonetheless, rump populations remained, eventually becoming the Pale, just as the Mizrahi will remain, as they have since Syria Palastina, in Jerusalem.

            They will retake western Ukraine, former Khazaria. The tactics they use are their Way, have been so since Labanayama the Canaanite.

            For the Tribe to survive, they must have a defensible redoubt. Israel is not their first home. It is not their last. Their People are their home, no matter where they might live.

        The US/NATO toppled an ELECTED government that wanted to be closer to Russia, and replaced it with a pro-Western government.

        They exhumed the Nazi past. They killed and harassed ethnic Russians.

        If they were permitted to get away with it, then next they would have NATO bases.

        Russia really had no choice.

        I saw a 2010 election map. The eastern Ukraine voted strongly for the pro-Russian candidate, the Western part for pro-NATO.

        For peace, the best answer is for Russia to annex the East Ukraine, and for the West Ukraine to be neutral, no military, with Russia and NATO signing a treaty to that effect.

        The far west Ukraine has had many masters. The EU and Ukraine can discuss, if they dare, who should get Lemberg.

        I hope the Russians

          And in 2019 the eastern Ukrainians were not even allowed to vote, but still Zelensky beat Poroshenko by running on a platform of peace with Donbass. The rest of Ukraine apparently is sick of the nazis attacking their fellow citizens.
          Then he got in and apparently had a call from the economic hitmen, because he never even tried to follow through.

            And then the Democrats impeached Trump because they said he held up weapons and advisors to Ukraine.

    It angers me no end that the US created mayhem in Ukraine and for the past 8 years, kids have had to sleep in basements because of constant shelling, but now suddenly Russia is the monster. And our ghouls in charge launch a virtue signaling campaign that has separated off most of the the rest of the people who resisted the covid19 hoax back into MSM/mainstream narrative camp.

          There is almost nothing stronger in this world than being “against”. These people would never deign to wear or fly an American Flag. But a flag that signals their hatred of America? Bring it on and they’ll put it on.

          As Alinsky said, Lucifer was the first rebel but hardly the last. Most who rebel end up in bed with him. The protest culture that was created in the 60’s is insatiable for new things to be against. It begs to fed and food for it will never be lacking.

            Most people have a large supply of stored-up anger–usually without acknowledging the real causes of their anger, even to themselves. They are really very eager to have someone/something to direct their anger AT. They are on board with anyone who will give them an object for their anger. it can be rather pleasurable to indulge in anger.

            Many bloggers play on this human foible. Karl Denninger (whom I greatly admire) is an example. It’s very easy to become an anger junkie.

            It has long bemused me why Americans feel a need to put a flag outside their property or wear an American flag lapel pin. I guess it’s safe to do it inside the US borders. Apparently, according to posters above, NOT displaying such flagrant emblems of loyalty is tantamount to “hating” America. Ha.

            On the flip side, whereas a young Australian or a New Zealander will purposefully stitch a flag or other emblematic icon on their backpacks so as to be identified as being from that part of the world, Americans are emphatically discouraged from wearing such things as the attention generated may well attract ‘trouble’ they don’t personally deserve or be able to deal with.

        The pandemic has almost run its course, which it was always going to do – that’s simple enough to figure out. But rather than see it for what it is, you still insist on your conformationally biased view that “the narrative has been exposed” and blah, blah, blah. It’s (all but) over, that’s all.

        I read today that US employment is going through the roof (again) as people learn to live with Omicron – which, in a vaccinated population – is comparatively mild and probably the ‘last gasp’ of the “pan” part of the pandemic. This will lead to its becoming endemic, perhaps seasonal, much as the 1918/19 pandemic gave us the endemic flu virus we’ve all become familiar with in the century since.

      I agree that there is plenty of evil entrenched in D.C.–most all of it Fascist/Socialist Democrat scum working day and night to destroy freedom and the American Republic. They have latched on to Putin’s aggression in Ukraine, not because they hate Communism–in fact, the Democrat scum admire it (and profit from it)–but because they have to oppose Putin to retain any political credibility in the U.S. That does not change the fact that Putin, like Xi, is an anti-American, anti-freedom, genocidal thug who is more than willing to exploit any weakness in his enemies. And, Lord knows, with Biden, Harris, the Democrat Administration, and the Democrat-controlled Congress, there is plenty of weakness and stupidity to exploit. Thanks in large part to the Democrat scum, the world is left with no good options to deal with the expansionist desires of Russian and Communist China, there are only bad options, worse options, and worst options. Little doubt that Biden and Co. will choose the worse or worst options–in the last year-plus of this disastrous Administration, they’ve chosen the worst options EVERY TIME..

        Had America played its cards right after the fall of the Soviet Union, the Russians could by now be our best friends on the planet. Maybe. Now, all bets are off. But the Russians have embraced some aspects of capitalism, as have the Chinese. The Chinese are the iffy ones. I watched a Netflix documentary the other night, about the silk road project and the Chinese business and industry going on around the world. They will have problems in Pakistan and eventually some of their African ventures. They have made a lot of progress and it seems they intend to rule the world economically and they just might pull it off. If the BRICS idea is a success and the US no longer has the worlds reserve currency then it will get ugly for sure.

Then one day the kids appeared carrying spears. The bear opened the cage (they didn’t know he could do that) and went after them.

      The PTB wanted the war. They would like to squeeze Russia, and having Ukraine in NATO makes Russia more militarily vulnerable.

      In a conflict, Ukrainians and Ukraine are expendable.

      The PTB figured they might get lucky and win. Maybe really lucky and topple Putin, a smart leader who vexes them.

      But, fellow CFNers, the action in the Ukraine is really the sideshow.

      The Western bank sanctions are WW3 in the financial-economic realm.

      They will hurt Russia. But Russia is falling from the 2nd floor AND Russian society can take it

      They will devastate our teetering economy. We are gonna fall from the 5th floor, and we are soft and diverse/divided.

      Global reserve currency? The US system may implode, as food and fuel costs skyrocket past the current 1979-80 level of inflation, and trade freezes up. The dollar might become less credible than today’s ruble.

      It may require a new “digital currency” to get out of the mess. A big “reset”.

      And that is the objective of the PTB. Control the masses of the West first, then work with/coopt China (which already controls their masses), for a one world government.

      The pandemic, this war, the “war” to save the planet, equity, are all part of the quest for one world government. And the American public, like Vietnamese, Iraqis, and Ukrainians is expendable toward that end. Our elites are globalists, not Americans.

      Russia’s leaders seem to be Russians. Trump, flawed and immature as he was, seemed American, not globalist.

      In this, I think our brilliant host may underestimate the globalists and how controlling the urban/suburban public will facilitate controlling much of the world made by hand. Look at the USSR, or German-occupied Greece in WW2

      Ironic to think it was only the doctors who dared to stand up to the CDC and balk at the vaccines, respect natural immunity and who ordered life-saving early treatments with off-patent, safe medications who are losing their licenses to practice medicine.

      USA/NATO used it in Yogoslavia, Lybia, Syria, etc. and that is one of many precedents instituted by the West that RUS is following.


      RUS probably has better intelligence regarding CIA biolabs in Ukraine than GHWB had about “yellow cake” in Iraq. That’s another precedent.


      If Israel can say that a land they occupied 2000 years ago is still theirs, than why can’t Russians say the same about a land they occupied 30 years ago? Yet another precedent established by the West.

      This could go on and on…

          I haven’t researched this yet, but after the fall, in ’91, and borders were registered, re-registered, to whatever gets done in some process, the Ukraine region didn’t play. This opens the case, if true, they had no recognized borders thus “invasion” becomes an intellectual exercise.

      Russia was protecting the breakaway Russian people living in Donbas who have been constantly shelled and bombed by the Ukraine military for seven years. There is this thing called the MINSK Accords which Ukraine agreed to then reneged on.

      Remember Samantha Power and her “Responsibility 2 Protect” hokum? That’s what the US used to overthrow Qaddafi in Libya. Now Libya is a failed state with slave/human trafficking.

      Putin is just protecting The Donbas which is why it is now completely encircled by Russian troops.

    Morning Jim – excellent take as always, thanks. I’m with you.

    “And all of sudden, it appears a lot of American citizens have had enough of being fucked around. I’m with them.” ~ JHK

    Just my 2 cents, but I think the heart of the Ukrainian affair is Davos (globalists) vs. nationalists.

    They won’t let Zelenskyy surrender because then it’s no longer legally a “war”, but negotiation and reconciliation.

    In other words, they’ll sacrifice innocent Ukrainian lives (no matter how many fucking lapel ribbons they wear), in order to continue to vilify Putin on the world stage.

    Sacrificing innocent people (and our health, economy & sovereignty) in order to continue to vilify a nationalist. Sound familiar? Where have we seen that tactic before?

    These fuckers need to hang.

        The easiest way to understand what’s going on, is to answer every question with, “That’s their intent.”

        Why would they leave the Southern Border open? Why constrain our energy supply? Why harm people (depopulate) with “vaccines”? Why cripple small businesses? Why indoctrinate our children?

        Eliminates all the consternation – “That’s their intent.”

    After listening closely to Mr. Putin’s speeches it is obvious he is moving ahead with his plan as stated as accurately as he can in a state of war. The scary part for us as a whole is the fact this is only part 1. He is after NATO! So will he be demanding those country members to denuke once his precedent has been set in Ukraine. He has stated this and threatened Finland and Sweden.

    • BackRowHeckler March 4, 2022 at 10:33 am #

      Sen. Lindsey Graham irresponsibly called for Mr. Putin’s assassination. In the first place this distinguished Senator doesn’t comprehend that any replacement for Putin might be a bigger hardass than Putin himself, and one looking to take out his revenge on the world. Secondly, it might not to be such a good idea to de stabilize a country that has 5000 nuclear warheads in its arsenal, a good number of them pointing in our direction.

      • Socrates-Detroit March 5, 2022 at 12:54 am #

        Sweden saw the light, and/or adapted to the “new realities” in the 1700s, and became neutral.

        But before that, Sweden was a major power, as was Poland.

        I think Sweden made it as far south as the Ukraine.

        Over time, Russia and Prussia/Germany displaced Sweden and Poland. Sweden was lucky to be far enough away. Poland was divided between Russia, Prussia, and Austria.

        Lemberg has changed hands several times.

        I understand Putin has acknowledged that the Western Ukraine was taken from Poland by the USSR.

    The world was beginning to grok how dishonest, deadly, and sinister the whole Covid caper really was — from the engineered and patented origins of the disease, to the lethal mechanisms of the “vaccines”

    My oldest sister (67) died of a heart attack in December of last year; at least thats what my youngest sister told me.

    I want to ask my 2 other sisters who took care of my oldest sister, if ________ was fully vaccinated; but Im pretty sure the question would make them angry since they themselves are probably fully vaccinated?

    See how that works?

    If a person is fully vaccinated they can’t consider the possibility the vaccine kills people; I think thats the source of the anger they have when you engage them in any vaccine related subject?

    Oh well, Im one of 8 children so I guess I’ll monitor this little “experiment” because I can pretty much guess which family member got the vax and which didn’t. (5 sisters 2 brother)

    Written in 1998 in the NYT, Kennan (who joined the State Department in 1926 and was U.S. Ambassador to Moscow in 1952) virtually predicted today’s insane brink of war with Russia:

    “I think it is the beginning of a new cold war,” said Mr. Kennan from his Princeton home. ”I think the Russians will gradually react quite adversely and it will affect their policies. I think it is a tragic mistake. There was no reason for this whatsoever. No one was threatening anybody else.”

    He went on to say:

    “It shows so little understanding of Russian history and Soviet history. Of course there is going to be a bad reaction from Russia, and then [the NATO expanders] will say that we always told you that is how the Russians are – but this is just wrong.”

        • SW March 4, 2022 at 5:56 pm #

          Here’s more from that article and it was about adding countries to NATO.

          “This expansion would make the Founding Fathers of this country turn over in their graves. We have signed up to protect a whole series of countries, even though we have neither the resources nor the intention to do so in any serious way. [NATO expansion] was simply a light-hearted action by a Senate that has no real interest in foreign affairs.”

          “What bothers me is how superficial and ill informed the whole Senate debate was,” added Mr. Kennan, who was present at the creation of NATO and whose anonymous 1947 article in the journal Foreign Affairs, signed ”X,” defined America’s cold-war containment policy for 40 years. ”I was particularly bothered by the references to Russia as a country dying to attack Western Europe. Don’t people understand? Our differences in the cold war were with the Soviet Communist regime. And now we are turning our backs on the very people who mounted the greatest bloodless revolution in history to remove that Soviet regime.”

    • Hereward the Woke March 4, 2022 at 2:18 pm #

        The people with intelligence, maturity and integrity have all been chased out of politics. Those with none of those traits have been rewarded with campaign funds, TV interviews and control of countries. Justin and Joe are poster boys for the latter. They consider themselves and their families above the law for the simple reason that they are. The worst that will happen to Justine after he/she/they are kicked out of office is a plum position in an NGO.

        People are chosen for important positions based on checking boxes for increasingly weird reasons. Sam Briton is a perfect example. Who knew we needed a sadomasochist in an important federal job?! This group had been sadly misrepresented and the error needed to be corrected.

        To read more about his important contribution to western civilization:

        “t is going to be quite interesting to see how official conservative Washington responds to the Sam Brinton hire. I bet response is muted to positive. Why? Because though what Brinton represents is being championed by liberals, and he is a progressive hero, objecting publicly to people like Brinton and what they represent is something that is no longer done in elite circles, even among conservative elites. By the time the Boomers and the Xers die out, there will be no one left to object.”

    I hear Geraldo Rivera calling for USAF Warthogs to wipe out the 40 mile long Russian Army caravan headed for Kiev, noting how successful a similar operation was in Iraq in 2003; as if it would be a cakewalk and NATO aircraft wouldn’t be challenged by Russian migs.

      This official Ukrainian document has just surfaced.

      From: Secretary of the National Security Council of Ukraine
      To: Minister of Community and Territorial Development Chernyshev A.M.
      Dear Alexei Mikhailovich!
      I wish to inform you, that based on the situation on March 4, 2022, more than 40% of the territory of Ukraine is occupied and controlled by divisions of the Armed Forces of Russia.
      Civilian population is continuing to hastily flee the country (based on the situation on March 4, 2022, more than 180 thousand persons).
      More than 75% of the military potential of the Ukrainian Armed Forces has been destroyed.
      There is a sharp conflict between “Azov” [Nazi—translator’s note] battalions and the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The nationalist battalion no longer obeys orders.
      We do not expect any real military help for Ukraine from the side of NATO.
      In consideration of the above, I ask you to attend a closed extraordinary meeting…
      /Signed/ Alexei Danilov

        The Azovs are killing civilians who try and flee Mariupol. They want them there so can they be killed by Russian fire and then blame Russia. Utterly twisted. Not Aryan (noble) in any way.

    Bravo. Right on the money. Such a shame that 60% of Americans guzzle the Lefty purple Kool-Aid. The U.S. has become the mass equivalent of Jonestown, or the Heaven’s Gate cult. Jim Jones and Marshall Applewhite are laughing now.

    It’s no wonder the likes of Biden, Hillary, Sanders, Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez and mainstream media rule the roost. The vast majority of Americans are hook, line and sinker under their spell.

    This is the beginning of the end for a once great nation, and there is no turning back. America is too far gone. How pathetic. The sad part is watching the slow motion collapse play out. The USA is gone with the wind. Best learn to speak Russian and Chinese. It’s their time. They know the U.S. system of switching leadership and focus every 4-8 years doesn’t work. They’ve got 30-year plans and take full advantage of Western folly. All they need to do is watch America slip further and further into chaos while they advance like Hitler. Soon the USA will collapse into civil war. That’s when they’ll step in, comrades.

    • TaxDonkey March 4, 2022 at 11:25 am #

      The US, China and Russia are all on the verge of collapse. All three need to make their play for world domination NOW. There’s no 30 year plan anymore. China’s environment is dangerously toxic, they have energy issues and feeding their 1.4 billion mouths is a serious liability in an energy constrained world. Russia needs higher commodity prices to sustain their economy and avoid collapse. The Davos crowd apparently feels like they need nuclear annihilation so they can build back better. Everybody has to make their play, the pace of events is speeding up.

      • Disaffected March 4, 2022 at 12:14 pm #

        Trouble is, only ONE of the three seeks world domination. Not working out so well currently.

        • Jarek March 4, 2022 at 1:04 pm #

          Not China? I think you’re wrong.

          Not Putin? He has said things about the tragedy of the collapse of the Soviet Union. Eastern Europe doesn’t trust him. But I admit it’s far more ambiguous than Oceania or East Asia.

          Soros said something awhile back about regime change in China. Evidently they weren’t amenable to giving up their nationhood and sacrificing their people like “we” are. Maybe that’s what cinched the Russian/Chinese alliance.

          • Disaffected March 4, 2022 at 4:29 pm #

            China remains to be seen over the long term. Of course they could eventually stupidly follow the US’ path and try to rule the world militarily, but at the current time and given the sterling example of all the US’ blunders, they realize that all that military nonsense just robs them of prosperity and does nothing to enhance their security. The US, on the other hand, as a byproduct of all the European lust for empire before it (not to mention a certain ethnic/religious group), has been scheming to rule the world since at least the time of the civil war. Global empire has been a uniquely European/American project for the last several hundred years at least.

          • Disaffected March 4, 2022 at 4:33 pm #

            And in any case, the US is in no position to contest global leadership with either Russia or China now, and very likely never will be again. No need to shed crocodile tears however; thanks in large part to our worship of money and all the things it can buy, we did it all to ourselves.

          • Jarek March 4, 2022 at 10:02 pm #

            Yes, when the Japanese first met Europeans, the concluded they were very “yang” – masculine and expansive. Driven even more by this trait than their lust for wealth.

            The Chinese advance more by need and weight of numbers. Thus what they conquer stays conquered as per Tibet. More Chinese than Tibetans now.

            “They had an administrative meeting!

            And I find it hilarious that you lay out how the stories are invented in your imaginary trial.
            That is exactly how the Holdomor story was invented, based on imaginary meetings of evil men.
            They took a real event, a famine, and 50 years after the event they invented a story and spread it all over the world and the universities.
            Again, you are free to believe the word of known liars if it comforts you.

    Sign o’ the times:

    #1 while factually false is actually true in essence (the ending COVID part) because 24/7 Ukraine has completely supplanted the Deadly™ Pandemic as the shiny object upon which the herd is fixated.

    #2 while technically true (the low incidence of severe COVID in children) is false in essence because a placebo, six bowls of Cap’n Crunch or Tabasco sauce enemas would also result in the low incidence of severe COVID in children… mainly because severe COVID like severe anything primarily happens to the 300 lb, one-foot-in-the-grave set.

    I’m all for Putin going after those labs. Those labs are a threat to all humanity. If they have the same setup in Taiwan, then I can see why China may want to invade. Labs like those are the cause of pandemics and crop failures. The reason they are not in the US is because they would be scrutinized and there would be a chain of responsibility. I beginning to think China was the fall guy for covid, that one of these labs the elite control in China intentionally released this virus.

      You really think that there are no bioweapon labs in the US?
      Wow! That is naive.
      But yeah, the CDC shut down one in August of 2019..
      I guess it was just a coincidence that a bunch of nursing home residents near the lab had died of an unknown disease in July.
      Oh, and then we started seeing young men die of a severe lung disease that summer and fall. Cause they vaped, doncha know.
      And then four soldiers who went to the Military Games in Wuhan in November 2019 were hospitalized with an unknown respiratory disease.
      No way the US would be working on gain-of-function research trying to weaponize flu and aerosolize Ebola.
      Yes, they are and right here in this country.
      What’s more they are going to move one of the bioweapon labs, which also works on weaponizing plant diseases, as you point out, from Plum Island, New York to Kansas.
      Kansas! What could possibly do wrong with experimenting with plant diseases in the heartland of America?

    I didn’t know the Surgeon General had police powers.

    “President Biden’s surgeon general on Thursday formally requested that the major tech platforms submit information about the scale of Covid-19 misinformation on social networks, search engines, crowdsourced platforms, e-commerce platforms and instant messaging systems.

    A request for information from the surgeon general’s office demanded that tech platforms send data and analysis on the prevalence of Covid-19 misinformation on their sites, starting with common examples of vaccine misinformation documented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    The notice asks the companies to submit “exactly how many users saw or may have been exposed to instances of Covid-19 misinformation,” as well as aggregate data on demographics that may have been disproportionately exposed to or affected by the misinformation.

    The surgeon general, Dr. Vivek Murthy, also demanded information from the platforms about the major sources of Covid-19 misinformation, including those that engaged in the sale of unproven Covid-19 products, services and treatments.”

    Geopolitics has been called The Great Game, and Russia plays it every bit as much as we do. No doubt we have been meddling in Ukraine and elsewhere, but so does Russia, and Iran, Israel, etc. But what’s happening now isn’t a game but is wholesale slaughter of innocent people by a paranoid war criminal. Russia and Ukraine may have a complicated history, but the fact is, Ukraine been an Independent nation for decades, and the idea that NATO or Ukraine is or was a threat to Russia is a sick joke. If they were, Ukraine would have been fast-tracked to membership a week ago, and A-10 Warthogs would have already wiped out Russian columns and artillery.

    This whole thing reminds me of the misogynist you read about in the newspaper. “My ex-wife was messing around with another man! That’s why I cracked her head open and then stabbed her. She made me do it!”

      @ zekesdad –

      Fact: Ukraine was part of Russia for nearly 300 years, breaking away when the Soviet Union collapsed.
      Fact: The United States promised there would be no eastward expansion of NATO at the time of Soviet collapse.
      Fact: Since the US promise of no eastward expansion of NATO, Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Bulgaria have joined NATO putting the lie to the promise.
      Fact: The Military Industrial Complex – pronounced US government – has been spoiling for a war with Russia for decades, Hillary Clinton being one of the biggest proponents.
      Fact: By extending an invitation to Ukraine – informal or otherwise – to join NATO, the US government caused great consternation to Russian leadership. The prospect of NATO missiles on his front porch was too much for a proud Russian to bear.
      Fact: Putin did everything but beg the US to sign an agreement not to put missiles in Ukraine. He did this within the past month. When the US refused twice, Putin rolled the tanks.

      Does that help you connect the dots?

      If Putin is smart, and he is, he will install a Russia-friendly government in Ukraine and skedaddle. The longer his troops stay in Ukraine, the bigger the chance for US involvement.

    Where do I stand….

    The Forward Observer reports’

    OATHKEEPER PLEADS GUILTY TO SEDITIOUS CONSPIRACY: The Justice Department (DOJ) announced Joshua James, a “regional leader” for the Oath Keeper organization, pled guilty to charges of seditious conspiracy and obstruction. The DOJ’s release said James “used encrypted and private communications, equipped himself with a variety of weapons, donned combat and tactical gear, and was prepared to answer a call to take up arms.” No weapons charges were included in the announcement, but the DOJ notes James gathered “thousands of dollars in weapons” for distribution to supporters. (AC: This high-profile guilty plea is likely to be used in ongoing domestic extremist hunts. The current administration could expand targeting of activist groups. Political advertising and media coverage will highlight James’ access to weapons. Talking heads will disingenuously tie firearms ownership to domestic extremism. As the midterms approach, expect these cases to reemerge in support of Democrat campaigns. – D.M.)

    “I won’t bother listing the many transgressions of Wokery against our culture and history. And all of sudden, it appears a lot of American citizens have had enough of being fucked around.”


    In Oregon we have a strong experienced candidate who is running for governor as an Independent and raking in donations from all our big moneyed folks (Nike, Columbia Sportswear, Timber interest, Ag).

    This is happening because everyone is tired of being fucked around. We traveled a good portion of the state the summer of 2021 and the devastation of small rural towns and businesses from stupid Covid policies was crushing. The loathing of Portland by most everyone is a real and those living outside of the metro area resent its influence.

    And Portland politics are shifting as well. Our formally pretty city is a wreck and a joke. In the last couple of weeks Mayor Wheeler has enacted emergency powers to deal with the homeless issue and to go around the inept commisioners. The situation is out-of-control and since the Dems and non-profits have been in charge it is a very real weak point especially if they want to win the governor’s race with their feeble candidates. Obviously they’re trying to get it “solved” by summer so they can claim victory for the election. We’ll see.

    I mention this because it shows the flux we’re all in as a result of the last couple of years. My guess is the increasing decrepitude of Biden, the Durham indictments, the Covid fallout and the breakdown of the economy will disrupt the current party system which is basically a uni-party.

    Both “franchises” have failed to appeal for a long time so its why it’s in our faces constantly. Pushing the idea that if you aren’t for a Democrat you must be a Republican and visa-versa is quaint, out-dated and ignorant. Those currently in charge no longer have idealogical room to maneuver that isn’t obvious to anyone paying attention.

    Also all the great comments so far this morning.
    Anecdotal family news, along with the others here,

    Both got sick and wont take anymore shots.
    43 year old son got the shot and is real nervous. Won’t do anymore shots also.

    In the last couple of days “Joe Biden” has officially threatened BOTH India and China with “serious consequences” for not going along with sanctions against Russia.

    I guess we don’t know the extent to which the CCP influences “Joe Biden” versus the Davos puppet masters, but it’s looking like the command and control center is short-circuiting from all the mixed commands coming in.

      I wonder whether there is a “reverse Stockholm syndrome,” where as soon as you grasp what people you are dependent on to survive, insted of identifying with them so that they will feed you and you do survive,

      you immediately turn against them, start flinging shit at them, bite them whenever you get the chance, urinate on them, verbally abuse them and their pets, refuse to identify with them as members of the same species of H. sapiens, until you finally collapse in a heap and starve to death.

    Imagine if you would, that China overthrew the government of Mexico and helped install a corrupt puppet leader under the guise of a “free” election. Free including jailing the opposition and any opposed media. Then China invited Mexico to join some relic Cold War military organization who’s main purpose was to force member countries to buy Chinese manufactured weapons and point them at the US. Then Mexico urges China to accept them into the organization and provide them nukes.

    Would the US, in the interest of self preservation, not attack Mexico and overthrow its government?

    • JohnAZ March 4, 2022 at 2:38 pm #

      Do you not realize that that is what is happening right now?

      Biden is not ignoring the border, he wants it wide open to admit more NWO serfs into America.

    How To Get OUR President Assassinated

    All you have to do is call for a foreign leader to be assassinated.

    Let me remind you all of just one thing: Whatever you think is appropriate for someone to do to someone else you have given the green light for that tactic generally.

    Whether someone might decide on their own to do such a thing is a question for clear debate. For example, would you have been willing to assassinate Hitler, given the opportunity? Would you do whatever you could to create the opportunity? Is that a reasonable thing to contemplate? There are many who would say “yes”, and perhaps they’re right.

    But a sitting Senator of a nation advocating same against a country we are not at war with is begging for that to change just as Senator McCain did by giving speeches advancing actual revolution in 2014 over in Ukraine at the time.

    A revolution that, I remind you, did occur.

      Assassinating Hitler wouldn’t have accomplished much as SS General Reinhard Heydrich would have stepped up and took Hitler’s place. Heydrich is called the Architect of the Holocaust; what’s more, as a trained officer he might not have made the same military mistakes Hitler did and Germany might have won the war.

      Who knows who Putins successor would be, maybe some embittered old Cold War General who wants to get even for the Soviet collapse in the 90s.

I knew this guy before the Pandemic and got to know him way better as a result of talking about all this bs. We finally had it out over “:Trump”. Shit I voted for Clinton like a fool.

          Graham and Bloomberg are 2 of “his Clients” and they all golf together and babble on about the bull shit of the current events.

          I never knew these shitheads were all golfing and flying around in their Lear jets all during the lockdowns. Teeing off!!!

        If he weren’t so ashamed of being light in the loafers, Graham might have channeled his misplaced passion into a decent love affair.

      If anyone – stand-up comic, unemployed sausage-maker, let alone a government official – in Russia had suggested that it might be a good idea if someone offed our glorious leader, we would claim that to be an act of war. Yet members of our government go around not only suggesting the assassination of foreign leaders, but actually assassinating them.

    Sandwiched in between the French invasion of Russia in 1812, and the German invasion in 1941, was the Austrian/German incursion deep into Russia in 1914, in which Russia incurred 10 million casualties, including 2.5 million KIA. Axis forces blew thru Ukraine well beyond Kiev and reached about as far as the contested Donbas region before they were halted; unlike in 1812 &1941 Moscow was never a goal in the first world war. 2.5 million KIA in 1914-1918 and 27-35 million dead 1941-1945 may be one reason the Russian people are a little bit nervous about having an unsecured western border. The world has forgotten about events of 1914-1918, but perhaps Russians have not.

    “… the whole Covid story was falling apart.”

    Lies have a shelf-life. They can only be conjured and fortified for so long. And the Dark Powers who move us all around like Chattel know that and always have The Next Lie at the ready. (And the next… and the next…).

    The problem is, those Dark Ones aren’t even trying much any more. They aren’t even trying to come up with good story lines to keep us transfixed in fear and in awe of Their great wisdom and leadership. They are just recycling old stories… re-runs. Disease and war. Disease and death. Wars and death. Be afraid of this… be afraid of that. And hoping that We all become preoccupied with ‘The Crisis Of The Day’ as the Dark Powers dispense it though our State media while We the People never set our gaze upon Who and what is the real threat and the real cause of our problems. The real place of origin of disease and death.

    “Forgive me for saying what I will about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The US authorities wanted it.”

    Wanted it? They have been BEGGING and salivating for it. It’s a good thing that no one in America knows or cares what The Indispensable Nation was doing to Ukraine in 2014 which was foreplay for today’s orgasmic pursuit of the long-awaited massive population reduction campaign and trying to topple Russia so that ‘Full Spectrum Control’ would be asserted World-wide in some kind of sick Manifest New World Order Destiny. All we need is Biden or The Giggler to come on to our National State media and declare to the World… ‘Resistance Is Futile’. Hope they can still fit into their Star Trek convention duds when They make that speech.

    “And now the economic sanctions on Russia, which are sure to blow back on the countries issuing them.”

    One way to keep people at home is to get gas to $5.00 a gallon or more. Take away our mobility and opportunities to travel. Keep us penned in and scrounging for the last bag of pasta at the Megamart.

    The leveling and wiping out of America’s Middle Class and small businesses marches on. It’s a feature, not a bug.

    “…why does this blog appear to take Russia’s side in the current conflict against the US and our supposed allies?”

    The only side being taken here is on the side of a rational pursuit of what is really going on. There is no ‘siding’ with any one side in this Monstrosity because ALL sides are FILTHY.

    “There is a difficult slog ahead. Is your head screwed on?”

    More importantly, if it IS screwed on… is anything productive going on in there? There are lots of people walking around with heads still attached but there are no lights on inside and the cobwebs in there are getting thicker.

    And when the current ‘difficult slog’ begins to wane as the Covid Con has, They will have teed up ‘The Next Big Crisis’ for everyone to obsess about and virtue-signal over.

    We have gone from being human beings to being violins.

    100% with you Jim, and have been in my own conclusions as to what and the why of this Ukrainian fiasco cum Covid coverup.

    As to those behind the Ukrainian portion, I point to the nature and scope of the 100 + year war for continental conquest of the world’s largest land mass initiated by the Rhodes Trust, its “scholars” in their parts played, and how the Russian Revolution (Western-assisted) kicked it all off by taking out the Romanov dynasty from the field of play. “Murder most FOUL!”
    It’s truly never ended, with the stated (and written of extensively) the heirs to the Rhodes fortune (associates—-not family) were tasked with Cecil Rhodes’s dream of reuniting the USA with the UK and to further the domination of the Anglo-Saxon, English-speaking countries over all the world’s lands and seas.
    See who financed the USSR, see who financed Hitler, see who remains dedicated to this singular pursuit of Establishment preoccupation with domination. The WEF is but another arm of this Hydra-Octopus.

    If I was Russia’s ruler, once all sanctions are lifted and the world looks to restore normal trade relations, I would look them steely cold in the eyes and say “nyet, we are keeping all of our oil, so go bugger off!” It would be great to laugh and laugh as the grovel away and see how they have been played in the end.

      “We are seeing the collapse of post Cold War triumphalism, ‘end of history’, ‘unilateralism’ and all the rest of it. Reality is biting, and biting hard. All you have to do is watch CNN’s parade of talking heads and ‘experts’ speculating about how crazy Putin is: they don’t understand, therefore he must be nuts. For the West, as it has been, it’s over. The confusion, the bullshit, the boasting, the hysteria, the bans: the West has nothing left in the locker. Pour Russian vodka down the toilet, fire a singer and director, change the name of a drink or a salad, ban cats or trees, sanction a Russian plutocrat and steal his yacht, wear a blue and yellow t-shirt. Pathetic. And don’t, under any circumstances, allow a Russian outlet to tempt the sheeple with ‘disinformation’. Just like the USSR but stupider. And who thought stupider was even possible?

      Judo is about deception and using the opponent’s strength against him. Putin, the judoka, has judoed the West into suicide. Put your money in our banks, we can confiscate it; put your assets in our territory, we can steal them; use our money and we can cancel it; put your yacht in our harbour, we can pirate it; put your gold in our vault, we can grab it. That is a lesson that will resound around the world. A naked illustration that the ‘rules-based international order’ is simply that we make the rules and order you to obey them. In 2 or 3 weeks everybody in the world who is on the potential Western hit list will have moved his assets out of the reach of the West. Xi will permit himself a small smile.

      As to Western sanctions against Russia, I think there’s a very simple answer to that: last week 1000 cubic metres of gas cost $1,000; today it’s over twice that. Next week it certainly won’t be cheaper. Ditto for aluminum, potash, titanium, wheat. Russian airlines lease their planes; now what? Russian rocket motors. What the people in the West do not understand is the ruble is the currency the Russians use inside the country but the price of oil and gas is the Russian currency outside the country. I am astounded at the stupidity: they’re cutting their own throats and destroying their own economies.” ~ Patrick Armstrong

      An implication behind ‘Build Back Better’ seems to be that there must first be some sort of ‘demolishing’, yes?

      “The initiative (Belt And Road) was incorporated into the Constitution of China in 2017. The Chinese government calls the initiative ‘a bid to enhance regional connectivity and embrace a brighter future.’ ” ~ Wikipedia

    Apparently Russian troops are now reported to be raping Ukraine women, but then again 25% of all Ukrainian women are prostitutes anyway, this according to a recent report in Newsweek:

  62. JohnAZ March 4, 2022 at 1:32 pm #

    Watched a Glen Beck You tube and a couple more by a guy who documents modern conflicts.


    Bottom line

    The globalists, whoever they are, starting with Soros maybe, are using political power against the West to destroy nationalism in the West. Their goal is to unite the western powers under one political and military regime. The regime will be much darker than today, literally and that is where the increases in population are coming from. Their plan is global, chipping away at the local power centers in favor of new world order. The governing entities of the US have been converted into soldiers for the globalist cause. The goal is the west becoming totally enveloped by globalism.

    Next target, circa ten years from now, Russia. Putin knows this. It is what Ukraine is really all about, blunting the globalist incursions into Russia’s domain. It involves the control of not just Russia’s oil and gas but Ukraine’s also as there are large deposits of both in Ukraine and Crimea.

    The NATO target of acquiring Ukraine is a dagger aimed at Russia’s heart to weaken it for the global takeover by the West, aKA the New World Order.

    Russia will not allow this to happen, period.

    What role China has in this is unknown, are they the ultimate winners, are they the third target for the globalists, ????

    The mechanism for the globalist takeovers is becoming more obvious. It follows the same thing the Rothschilds have utilized for centuries. Break the opposition’s economies. In the US, the mechanism is obvious because it is halfway complete already.

    How does the elite beat down an economy? By turning the nation into a poor gimme state, by tearing down the middle class, by moving national businesses into global corporations and moving them offshore. How to substitute poor gimmes for aggressive middle class? Open the Southern border and keep it open no matter what the political repercussions might be. Each gimme introduced to the country is a victory for the globalists. Each racial discord introduced is a victory for the globalists. The gimme, third world state is the end game for the globalists who will not stop until the USA, including Canada, and Europe are made into a gimme New World Order.

    The Deep State of the USA is but an arm of this effort. Every thing they are doing points away from US interests and toward global interests. AGW destroys the oil and gas power structure. Covid over reaction destroys national health structures in favor of WHO style healthcare. It also was an avenue to destroy the middle class of the US, the entire service sector.

    So the NWO wants Ukraine to win. No, they want the Ukraine to sap the Russians, like Afghanistan sapped them and us for stupid, non productive wars. The geopolitics, if you want to watch You tube excerpts, make it impossible for Russia to do anything else but invade and stabilize Ukraine and keep it out of the hands of NATO, aKA the New World Order. The elites of the NWO want Russia weakened, they do not give one damn about Ukraine.

    So much depends on the election this fall in the US. If enough Deplorable anti NWO folks get elected, it will put a serious dent in their plans for domination. I do believe that a humongous capital outlay will be brought in by the Deep State to make sure that it does not happen. The NWO gets their Deep State reinstalled, the end of the nation will be close behind.

    What to do? First, acknowledge the situation. Second, vote for anyone dissociating from the Deep State and supporting Trump this fall. Trump IS the only game in town that can even attempt to set these elites back on their heels. IMHO, If they succeed in destroying Trump and his legions with Jan 6 BS, the NWO is in charge. All the Whites need to move to the country that is trying to protect the Caucasian causes, Russia, if the NWO takes charge.

    The entire power struggle in the world right now hinges on one item, oil. The NWO needs that changed to finalize their takeover of world power.

    Hence, AGW and John Kerry.

    BTW, JHK was absolutely right on in 2005. Want to know what happens now? Check out You Tube’s evaluations and re read TLE and Too Much Magic, it is all there

    • JohnAZ March 4, 2022 at 1:36 pm #

      One more idea.

      The NWO will try anything to get power, attacking from all directions. It will be hard for people to accept that most conspiracies are correct and that one group is responsible for so many things happening at one time and in concert.

    • TaxDonkey March 4, 2022 at 2:11 pm #

      JAZ, pretty good overall summary except for the part about Mr. Operation Warpspeed as the savior. LOL. How many non-swamp personnel did he have in his administration? Very few.

      Things are moving fast. The system will likely spit up another controversial ‘grey hero’ before the 2024 selection. Trump has fulfilled his role by red-pilling some folks. Many others need to step into this role now. It can’t be just one dude (supposedly) versus the system.

      • JohnAZ March 4, 2022 at 2:20 pm #

        But right now it is, that is my point.

        Vote against Trump and his cadre, you vote for the NWO.

        Trump has his problems, number one being outnumbered ten thousand to one by the Deep State and their parent, the NWO in Washington DC.

        You say he had Swamp people in his group, you are right.

        That’s because there was no other choices, the Deep State owns DC.

        He used his family and some close advisors for decision making and all he got was investigated, impeached, twice, his family constantly harangued by the Liberal MSM.

        It surprises me he wants anything more to do with this country.

        • JohnAZ March 4, 2022 at 2:24 pm #

          You address operation Warpspeed by today’s information.

          At the time, this nation was in a panic, created by Fauci, Trump’s worst mistake. Or was it Pence. The vaxx was the great savior.

          • TaxDonkey March 4, 2022 at 10:29 pm #

            JAZ, if it’s Trump versus Hillary or whatever, then OK, Trumps’ the guy you’re gonna vote for. What I’m thinking though, is that we could have a completely different paradigm by then with a different cast of characters.

            I know. I feel kinda bad for constantly bashing JAZ’s hero Trump, but JAZ has been gradually correcting his course regarding “Covid”, maybe he will eventually see through the illusion that Trump is on our side.

          • JohnAZ March 4, 2022 at 5:48 pm #

            Regarding Covid, I did shift from neutral to anti vaxx once the data came out showing the s protein damage and I was able to assess the similarity to the virus itself. The idea that we were injecting the material that caused the over inflammation in the first place finally took hold. Gone is any faith in the Medical community.

            I will never ever believe that there is no such thing as a virus.

            As I will never believe that there is a better solution than Trump as long as I feel that everyone else on the national stage is the enemy of the republic or inelectable against the NWO Deep State. If some GOPers are good enough, they will have to prove it, I see none now.

            BTW, who exactly do you think is on your side and electable?

            I said, “I’m with Mary on this“. I didn’t say “I’m with Mary whatever she says or does.” “This” being the notion that no one in a position of power and/or authority is going to save us.

            My interpretation of some of your writings leads me to the conclusion that you would probably agree with that notion.

            My interpretation of other of your writings leads me to the conclusion that you will probably act as if we are excluding you from the sandbox. Poor Jar Jar, smitten once again by the cruel sting of ostraka. (Thanks for the new word Rulo!)

            Last week he was saying that there is no homogeneity (no races I suppose) in nature. But that would also mean no species. It’s utterly inane but typical, but I’m the only one who seems to able to catch it or cares to.

    Caught up, drawing lines on a paper
    At the price of the blood in the sand


    Watch it fall another great one


    Well the old men said the great big apple
    Is rotten to the core
    With Wall Street skimming from the till
    While no one minds the store
    And how could someone get so low
    In a building so damn tall?
    How long until there’s nothing left at all?

      At 11:11 AM Moscow time (about an hour ago) the authorities of Zaporozhye Region announced that Zaporozhskaya AES is under control of the Russian forces.

      At 6:20 AM Moscow time the fire at the administrative building at Zaporozhskaya AES was extinguished with no casualties. It was probably set on purpose to create the media picture of “Europe’s largest nuke plant on fire!”

      At 5:36 AM Moscow time the International Atomic Energy Agency announced that the fire in the area of Zaporozhskaya AES did not affect any of the main equipment at the plant.

      At 4:47 AM Moscow time president Zelensky goes live to announce that the Russians are trying to create a new Chernobyl. A likely story, that.

      Between 3:51 AM and 3:59 AM Moscow time fire crews were on site putting out the fire. Apparently, there wasn’t a lot for them to do.

      Between 2:00 AM and 3:30 AM Moscow time there was a shootout at the power plant’s administrative building. Somehow it resulted in a fire at the administrative building.

      So much for a new Chernobyl.

    “In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.” — Theodore Dalrymple

    Midpoint, Russia subjugated by the NWO, they just keep coming, they dominate everyone but East Asia. Then what?

      I think so. China’s star is rising, pulled upward, in part, by the fall of our star – pulled down by our bankers and corporations. China is taking the place of the U$ as global hegemon.

      Breaking Europe economically will force them to loosen ties to U$ and strengthen ties with China. China goes up while U$ goes down.

        If I had to guess, I’d say China is not part of the NWO. Are they in cahoots? Yes, there’s some kind of dirty deal between the CCP and WEF. For example, the videos coming out of China that are now proven fakes, where people with a new virus were falling down in the streets etc….suggests that the Chinese were in on the hoax. The Chinese and American authorities on the wet market pangolin horseshit story was just too smoothly coordinated as well.

    Stone is a hippie. A true hippie. He earned it. He self-enlisted in Vietnam. He served.

    He has not changed his allegiances like the other 60’s counterculture folks.

    He is AGAINST “the man” through-and-through. He does not equivocate.

    Now, take it for what it is, an opportunity for Putin to push his propaganda. But there is a lot of truth in it, the kind most Americans refuse to see: the imperialistic and war begetting agenda of the United States.

    Give the jingoism a rest. You’re being played.

    If you’re too dim to look askance at Hannity, Maddow, Soros, Cotton, Clinton Inc., the Bushes, Lindsey Graham, AOC, hedge fund billionaires, Soros, war hawks, neocons, Sean Penn’s & Hollywood lining up in support of a war that they NEED you to wage, that they will not participate in, then you deserve your fate.

      I watched those many years ago, Mis, and Putin is clearly on another level to the WEF shills running Western governments. Ice cool, extraordinary knowledge and recall, straight talking, and I even liked his sense of humour. It ought to be essential viewing for anybody wanting to throw their 2p into the Ukraine discussion.

          Everybody is saying how Putin looks crazy etc….Maybe he is, I don’t know. A Fox news commentator says he is looking puffy which means he is on anti-psychotic medicine, LOL. But I watched his speech from the other day. He looked cold as steel, focused, very precise in what he wanted to say. A bit tired perhaps, but not unhinged.

          • Slugoon March 5, 2022 at 2:20 am #

            The people calling Putin crazy are the same ones claiming there’s nothing wrong with Brandon. They’re unhinged. The words that fall from their lips are getting ever more fanciful but they can’t see it, so rabid are they.

    This is completely laughable!!!!

    “I would rather have high gas prices here than an authoritarian regime in the Ukraine,” said Los Angeles resident Jacqueline St-Anne.

    “If we have to suffer with a little bit of inflation and gas prices for a while to assure that such a wonderful country as Ukraine has an opportunity to develop its democracy, we should do that.”

        Who would ever describe the Ukraine as “such a wonderful country”??? Everything about this story comes across as completely contrived. I would not put it past us that this story may be completely fabricated, much like they were doing with all those Covid vaxx stories hitting the news wires. We are awash in propaganda, the news bureaus are nothing more than for-profit arms of the elitists, and you can’t believe anything.

        Well, the elderly gentleman, bless his heart, is right that lifting the mask mandate results from a political consideration.

        What he doesn’t get is that the mask mandates themselves result from a political consideration.

    Oh, look. It’s Putin giving a speech at Davos, pissing all over the Schwabster’s plan for a Great Reset.


    The Ukraine Hoax from the makers of the Covid Hoax.

    • thirdcoastlegend March 4, 2022 at 3:39 pm #

      Putin was a colonel in the KGB and spent a year in charge of the follow-on FSB.

      I am open to the idea that Vlad noted the WEF early on and joined with the intention of infiltrating THEM.

      Also note that the WEF has an organization called, “Global Shapers,” that is over 10k strong and active in over 450 cities around the world.

      • Night Owl March 4, 2022 at 4:40 pm #

        Yes, I mentioned the Shapers approximately two years ago.

      • Islander March 4, 2022 at 5:22 pm #

        thanks for the reminder that Putin was/is KGB adn the possible relevance of that item on his CV.

        It didn’t occur to me but it makes a lot of sense that Putin might have tried to infiltrate the organization to see what they are up to.

        I wonder whether there are, actually, some sleepers in there. It would seem like a very likely scenario. And, a great movie plot! In fact, writing a screenplay that pits some sleepers against TPTB in the WEF might be a perfect way to out it . . .

        As soon as i read the Global Shapers website and saw the “apply” button I thought that it would be great to get some promising Young Thing to apply as a sleeper (I am, alas, too old!!! and not much good at dissembling).

        I’ll have to see whether I can nudge my great-nephew in that direction.

        And, if he were accepted and even became a cult member, it might still be good for me to have some local “protection” when the totalitarian SHTF.

        • Night Owl March 4, 2022 at 5:54 pm #

          It is a cult. I explained this many times.

          At my company (a Fortune 500/capstone-type place), the annual meetings are near ritualistic, and we are inundated with WEF propaganda.

          • Paula D March 6, 2022 at 12:36 pm #

            That fascinates me, Night Owl. Why are they telling the employees of your corporation what is going on? You say they are trying to recruit them?
            For what? Are you supposed to be enforcers, or thought leaders, or what?

          • Night Owl March 7, 2022 at 8:02 am #

            They are not directly telling them/us. One must know the code. Most of my colleagues think we are saving the world by supporting companies engaged in “green” projects, or they believe Industry 4.0 and the digitization of bodies is going to be used to help humanity evolve in a positive way.

            The propaganda is the same, but the attempt to rally the team to the cause is much stronger here. It is cult-like.

            Since the start of the Ukraine narrative, I’ve been inundated with mails from higher-ups about how “although we don’t normally take political positions, we stand with Ukraine.” And we are regularly asked to donate to the puppet government.

            This messaging breaks a number of laws, but they will not get in trouble for it, because as the Covid Hoax showed us, laws no longer seem to have much of a meaning.

          • Night Owl March 7, 2022 at 8:03 am #

            I should also add that most also have no idea where the WEF/Transhumanist imagry that permeates our Intranet and company documents comes from.

            Many of the images are lifted straight from WEF materials.

        • thirdcoastlegend March 4, 2022 at 5:54 pm #


          One more interesting point about Putin.

          He was Boris Yeltsin’s hand-picked successor.

          I think he saw a strength in Putin that he did not possess, and understood that strength would be needed to save Russia.

          • Islander March 4, 2022 at 7:46 pm #

            Yes, I know that Putin was hand-picked by Yeltsin.

            I pointed this out in I think the previous thread, when someone was going on about how Putin is really WEF blah blah blah. Extremely unlikely, I pointed out, under the circumstances of how he came to power in the RF.

            Which is why the possibilty that he did consider infiltrating the WEF when he was still KGB even more interesting. Because Schwab has mentioned him in a way that sounded like Schwab thought Putin might be his man. That was in 2017, before Putin took the WEF apart in 2021.

    Who on earth wants a uni-polar world? An overlording world government with total hegemony?

    Technocratic vassals in Brussels and D.C. ruled by the .001% “elite” who are in turn guided by a Swiss/German architect of a the new world order?

    The regimes and governments they tell you are your enemies, China and Russia, are in reality the last obstacles in their global conquest.

    A multi-polar world is a freer world.

    • thirdcoastlegend March 4, 2022 at 3:51 pm #

      A new multi-polar world doesn’t look that much freer.

      I mean, on one hand, you have the WEF/Davos gang and the Chinese offering us two fairly similar modes of totalitarianism.

      On the other, you have Vlad, who is offering his own vision of authoritarianism that still involves infinite jabs and QR codes for entry.

      • Jarek March 4, 2022 at 3:59 pm #

        He couldn’t resist! What Leader could? Hopefully their jab is safe if not effective.

        • GreenAlba March 4, 2022 at 8:34 pm #

          Apparently only 20% of Russians have taken the jab. They may support Putin on the world stage, but when it comes to new medications, they don’t trust their government. The Sputnik vaxx is similar to Astra Zeneca, if I recall correctly. I don’t think it causes as many blood clots, but it still uses messenger DNA to produce spike proteins. There was supposed to be a project involving collaboration between AZ and the Gamalaya Institute, and AZ are certainly dodgy, so I’m not sure I’d trust the Gamalaya either.

          It’s hard to know anything, though, as Russia apparently doesn’t have open-source death statistics, or so I read ages ago when trying to find out about adverse effects from their vaxx.

          • Jarek March 4, 2022 at 11:32 pm #

            Sad. I expected more from Putin. Also disappointed in Modi of India – a National Socialist. Such men of knowledge and power had no business giving into this. No excuse.

            The Chinese seem to have protected their people the best of all the big powers. Real National Socialism as opposed to India’s fake version.

          • GreenAlba March 5, 2022 at 7:10 am #

            I should have mentioned that I think I read that ordinary Russians have more widely (than here, for instance) bought into the vaxx genocide theory (I call it a theory, but I have bought into it as well, so that’s not a loaded word).

            Re China, I don’t think we can know yet what is going on. If China is a tool – or partner – of the WEF (after all, they did stage the Wuhan theatrics with people dropping dead in the street, so they must be implicated in what’s happening), their people may just be getting a stay of execution. The idea that the political cabal in Beijing care about individual Chinese people strikes me as fanciful. So, perhaps the Chinese people are useful to the global PTB until the West is subdued and its numbers reduced, then it will be their turn to suicide themselves. They have the social credit system already, in parts of China, so the infrastructure is partly in place.

            Based entirely on speculation … perhaps Night Owl or Mary has a view on the part of China in all this?

            My view on covid ‘vaccines’ and all the new ‘vaccines’ in the pipeline with the brave new world of vaxx-for-everything, is that we don’t really know what’s going to be in any of them, even if they avoid (or claim to avoid) mRNA technology. You can stick covert graphene and nano-tech, for instance, in any old vaccine – it doesn’t have to be a particular type. Or so I imagine.

          • Jarek March 5, 2022 at 12:12 pm #

            No, not as individuals, they have few rights after all. But as a People, maybe. That would make Xi and Co true National Socialist. And if not, maybe as their power base? That would make the Chinese Elite far wiser than ours.

          • GreenAlba March 5, 2022 at 1:27 pm #

            Caring about a People, without caring about their personhood, is not a concept that means anything beyond exploitation of real living human beings in the service of an ideology. You might as well be running a concentration camp full of your own compatriots.

            If The People matters and not individual people, then there’s nothing wrong with Bill Gates and his handlers bumping off most of the world’s population in the service of tidiness and efficiency, and keeping the survivors in digital chains for the same purpose. Except that there is.

            Anyway, we’re back to Square one. No point going on. You’re hardly alone. And you and your sisters shouldn’t be allowed to vote since you don’t understand People or Nation. How can you preserve what you don’t understand?

            Comic Sans (thanks to whomever)

            Do you always ask questions in that tone when you don’t know what you’re talking about and hope to get a reply?


            “The Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine is based on the virus’s genetic instructions for building the spike protein. But unlike the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, which store the instructions in single-stranded RNA, the Oxford vaccine uses double-stranded DNA.”

            Do let me know if I can help you with anything else.

            The advantage of using DNA instead of mRNA is that DNA is more robust. So, for example, the ‘vaccine’ doesn’t need to be stored at a low temperature, like the Pfizer ‘vaccine’.

            Try courtesy next time. It costs nothing.

      • Night Owl March 5, 2022 at 5:53 pm #

        A multi-polar world is always more free, because the hegemons are in competition with one another, and, therefore, must each offer something different.

        If the wokies actually understood what real diversity is, they would be much better off.

        The real danger we face now is the technocracy combined with centralization. Never in history has the technology been available to flip the existing system into something that can be used to ensure total conformity.

        We are living through an incredible period of time, and if we fail, I really don’t see how things are going to turn around. We are on on the verge of watching the the omega of slavery systems roll out.

            I was in the Peace Corps in a small town in the mountains of the province of Tolima, Colombia. This was 40 years ago. I was paid $160 per month and never could spend it all.

            The capital city of that province (Ibague) has grown to 250,000 people. It has three universities, a public transportation system better than any in the US, and scores of new modern buildings. Rent for a modern 2 bedroom apartment in one of the towers is $250-300 per month. No expats to get together with and complain about their adopted country.. Learn to speak Spanish and you can have a life style that would cost $60,000 per year in Boise on a $15,000 US social security payment income with plenty left over for travel. I’d be the last to say that Colombia is perfect, but living on SS in the US isn’t either, especially as food costs start to eat up most of your monthly income.

            There are plenty of poor people in Colombia, but none are living on the sidewalk and shitting in the street like in San Francisco and Seattle. Which is the second world country and which is the Third?

            The most interesting educational experience of my life was during Peace Corps language training prior to going to SA. Most Peace Corps training took place in universities back in the states. Not ours! Immediately after receiving our battery of shots we were shipped to a jungle camp in the mountains of Puerto Rico. On the second day we began four hours per day of one-on-one language training, in groups of 4 with an instructor who spoke Spanish with the local/regional accent of the area we were assigned to. At the end of the first day we were totally fluent in one phrase– perhaps with a vocabulary of only four words, but recognizable by any local of our destination.

            After a month of training they transported us out various locations around the country, gave us four dollars each, and told us to find somebody who would put us up for four days plus a longer stay at the end of training. Imagine trying to do that in Boise, speaking only a scattering of a language like Norwegian or Ukranian! Sink or swim– the goal was to weed out those who would not be able to adjust to a totally different style of living. Brilliant!

            I remember going dancing at the local tienda during the first week with a volunteer who arrived with a college degree in Spanish. At the end of the ten weeks training period almost everyone in the group was as fluent as she regardless of their previous background.

            In my home village I didn’t hear English spoken for months at a time. Fortunately I met a beautiful woman who worked at the Ministry of Agriculture who helped complete my Spanish education!

            Its easy to say— just duplicate a truly unique educational experience and go for it. But for someone nearing retirement age instead of being in their 20’s that is nearly impossible. I’d recommend choosing a place like Boquete Panama, with a large and diverse expat community overlayling a Latin base culture. Or if you don’t mind the heat, Cartegena Colombia Of course it will cost a lot more to live—.

            It’s time to find a way to step aside from the slow motion train wreck in the USA, Canada, and Old Europe if possible.

    • Anthea March 7, 2022 at 12:08 am #

      Pretty much everything the guy predicts has already been done at some level, so the guy has it right.

      What puzzles me is, “Why?” The people who control the world already have piles of money and are surely already have everything they could possibly want, and are able to do anything and go anywhere they desire. The only things they lack are eternal life and eternal youth, and I doubt that either of these is possible.

      It seems to me that there only two motives for wanting control over other people. One is profit, and it seems to me that profit has already been maximized well beyond all possible human desires. The other motive is to have absolute power to debase and degrade others, to rob them of all dignity, to destroy them spiritually.

      I think this is the ultimate purpose, and that it is deeply Satanic–evil for evil’s sake–though it’s interesting to speculate what manner of gain there might be in robbing someone of their very soul.

      Edgar Alan Poe gave his take on that, in the humorous short story, “Bon-Bon,” in which a devil (perhaps The Devil) represents human souls as food. And Unscrupulous Providence has so arranged things that this comestible must be purchased honestly. You have to make a deal with somebody to sell you one (theirs).

      Besides being possible the only good story Poe ever wrote, “Bon-Bon” has the advantage of making sense. If evil is nonentity and non-existence, the only way it can exist at all is by feeding on life and being.

      So I would say that our would-be overlords are not only far worse than we think: they are far worse than we can imagine.

      Historians of the future: The spark that started the fire!

      • Alzaebo March 6, 2022 at 1:47 am #

        A black criminal started the American Revolution when he resisted police:
        Crispus Attucks!

        Samuel Adams and his gang, the “Mohawks”, ruled Boston with an iron fist. They were so onerous some townspeople begged the crown to send extra police.

        The Parliament had already repealed near all acts excepting a small tax for policing, but that wasn’t enough.

        Tea smugglers such as James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, and a host of small vendors selling hot tea from carts on every Boston streetcorner, were about to be wiped out.

        The Crown corporation of British East India was granted tax-free status. The Amazon of their age, their exemption from taxes would ruin even notorious smugglers like Hamilton, who wore gold lame’ and rode in a gilded (painted gold) carriage.

        The British colonial police were set up. Someone alerted them to a gang meeting at an old widow’s unused rental house, and snipers in the woods (Paul Revere was one) plinked at them on the way.

        There, they met a group of armed men. They demanded the men drop their weapons. The leader, a black man named Crispus Attucks, refused, and raised his rifle.

        The British troops fired, felling Crispus in The Shot Heard Round The World.

    There are people here who allege that Putin is one of the richest men in the world, with billions socked away somewhere.

    Evidence-challenged, as far as I know.

    Meanwhile, back at the bank, here are some of planet Earth’s real swindlers and criminals:


    • thirdcoastlegend March 4, 2022 at 4:56 pm #

      Well, I think it’s also certain that Vlad has more than an apartment, dacha, and three cars in personal assets.

      I mean, he wears $60k Blancpain watches for pete’s sake.

      Blancpain being French for, “White Bread.”

      • cowbell81 March 4, 2022 at 5:23 pm #

        Notice that he wears the watches on his right wrist. That presumably means that he is left handed. Does his left handedness say anything about Putin as a person? I would argue that it makes him more of a creative and crafty type.

        • Night Owl March 4, 2022 at 5:48 pm #

          This means he is left-handed? Wut?

          • thirdcoastlegend March 4, 2022 at 5:57 pm #

            I’m a lefty and I wear my watches on my right wrist.

            On the other hand, I haven’t been very creative or crafty for some time now.

          • Night Owl March 5, 2022 at 6:01 pm #

            I was just implying that it doesn’t really mean anything. Plenty of right-handed people wear a watch on their right wrist.

        • Anthea March 7, 2022 at 12:26 am #

          Lefties are mentally wired differently than righties, although I’ve never been able to figure out exactly how. My impression is that they are not linear thinkers–and to some extent non-verbal thinkers. Linear thinking is useful but limiting. Thinking in words means that you’re operating in a mere caricature (cartoon) of reality. Lefties see a lot of things that we righties miss.

      • Islander March 4, 2022 at 5:55 pm #

        So what.

        He has a nice watch. So the fuck what.
        What is the problem here. You think it is tacky or something? He should wear a Timex watch?

        Dacha: Practically everyone in Russia has a dacha.
        I expect Putin’s dacha is very nice. He entertains the Russian and international elite at his “palace” on the Black Sea.
        Again: So what.
        Putin should invite heads of state of stay at hotel?
        Putin shouldn’t have a dacha? Or three?
        Compare: Camp David, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camp_David

        Putin has been working for the Russian people for 50 years.
        The only charges of some kind of corruption that I know of come from Americans.

        When it comes to Putin’s actual possessions, clothes, and imagined life style,their attitude is somehow that Putin, the leader of the largest and militarily strongest country in the world, should have nothing. He should be a monk or something. Because he is Russian. WTF?

        These assumptions are veiled racism. They do not seem to apply elsewhere. For instance, Queen Elizabeth has a ton of castles and flashy jewelry. She wears a different outfit and priceless gems every day.

          I had not intended to convey this depth of meaning in my post, nor stress you out as we enter the weekend.

          • Islander March 4, 2022 at 7:38 pm #

            Your comment re Putin’s dacha, watch etc.was petty.

            I am not “stressed.” More overreach.
            You yourself should be “stressed” in the sense of embarrassed to be observed being so petty and vain at thinking you are extremely clever to “translate” the name Blancpain. Again, so what.

            “Blancpain is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Blancpain family lived in the village of Blancpain in Normandy. The name of that town was probably derived from a person who worked as a baker.”

    No more Russian dressing!? How about caviar and borscht, etc?

    Just got off the phone with the Russian Tea room in NYC. They are in fact open. Ate there back in the day, was stuffy but good.

    Check this out:


    • cowbell81 March 4, 2022 at 5:26 pm #

      Russia as a country is iconic, no pun on the word there. Such amazing history, beautiful architecture (and women), delicious foods and interesting cultural traditions. I certainly hope they come out of all this okay. The Russian people are a great lot and they do not deserved to be dragged through the mud and abused by the globalists elites.

      • tucsonspur March 4, 2022 at 5:37 pm #

        And how they’ve suffered over the years. Here we sit with our fat-cat, corrupt elites protected by two oceans with no border problems except the ones they create themselves.

      • BackRowHeckler March 4, 2022 at 5:37 pm #

        Russia has produced great artists like Chagall, great composers like Tsiakovshy, and great writers like Chekhov.

        • MaryQueen March 4, 2022 at 7:30 pm #

          Don’t forget Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy and Bulgakov.

          • GreenAlba March 4, 2022 at 8:11 pm #

            An Italian university wanted to ‘forget’ Dostoyevsky, because of Putin.


            They’ve since done a U-turn, after complaints. You couldn’t make it up.

          • MaryQueen March 4, 2022 at 8:50 pm #

            My gawd.

            Well, it’s somewhat (?) of a relief to know that the US is not the only knee-jerk cancel cultured wokie country?

          • Blackbird March 4, 2022 at 10:43 pm #

            Or Rimsky-Korsakov, composer of the finest piece of orchestral music (in my opinion): Scheherazade.

            A symphony reflecting (again in my opinion) the nationalistic, imperialistic desire of Russia for a warm water port. It may be propaganda, but damn, that’s some fine propaganda.

          • MaryQueen March 5, 2022 at 11:07 am #

            Or Igor Stravinsky!

            Are they gonna put the kabash on Le Sacre Du Printemps now?

    • BackRowHeckler March 4, 2022 at 5:48 pm #

      Russian Tea Room, TS?

      I thought you’d be over at Umberto’s Clam House in Little Italy where Joey Gallo got whacked on his birthday by a hitman in the Bonnano Family.

      • BackRowHeckler March 4, 2022 at 5:58 pm #

        Oops my mistake.

        Crazy Joe Gallo got whacked by a Colombo Crime Family hitman, not Bonnano family.

        I don’t want to be giving out any bad information here on CFN.

        • tucsonspur March 4, 2022 at 6:21 pm #

          Was just about to ask you. Couldn’t remember myself. If I had to choose, Italian any day of the week, but I stay away from the scungilli.

          Some great scenes. My favorite is Galante with the cigar.


          • BackRowHeckler March 4, 2022 at 6:28 pm #

            Yeah, avoid that scungilli TS, it can be fatal lol.

          • BackRowHeckler March 4, 2022 at 6:32 pm #

            Incidentally, Umbertos Clam House was Genovese owned, as was the Stonewall Tavern where the Gay Rights movement started.

        • Alzaebo March 6, 2022 at 2:03 am #

          Good on you. I met the the kids next door, who used to play with Joe Bonnano’s kids, they told me Joe was just great. He a mentored kids like a friendly Italian uncle.
