Russia enjoys its glorious short summer. The global warming phobia couldn’t penetrate its chilly limits. While the South of France suffers a heat wave, California burns, and the progressive forces demonstrate against the climate, the Russians shrug their shoulders in disbelief. They wouldn’t mind some global warming. Here temperatures rarely go above a comfortable 22 °C, and now, in beginning of July, they are stuck at about 15 °C. Summer is the best time for the country covered by snow for the most of the year. Now one can travel into the deep countryside and discover ancient fortresses and churches – without suffering too much.

If you have ever traveled in Russia outside of Moscow, you certainly have some horrible stories to tell about its atrocious roads, food and lodging or rather lack thereof. Things have changed greatly, and they keep changing. Now there are modern highways, plenty of cafés and restaurants, a lot of small hotels; plumbing has risen to Western standards; the old pearls of architecture have been lavishly restored; people live better than they ever did. They still complain a lot, but that is human nature. Young and middle-aged Russians own or charter motor boats and sail their plentiful rivers; they own country houses (“dachas”) more than anywhere else. They travel abroad for their vacations, pay enormous sums of money for concerts of visiting celebrities, ride bikes in the cities – in short, Russia has become as prosperous as any European country.

This hard-earned prosperity and political longevity allows President Putin to hold his own in the international affairs. He is one of a few experienced leaders on the planet with twenty years at the top job. He has met with three Popes of Rome, four US Presidents, and many other rulers. This is important: 93-years old Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad who ruled his Malaysia for 40 years and has been elected again said the first ten years of a ruler are usually wasted in learning the ropes, and only after first twenty does he becomes proficient in the art of government. The first enemy a ruler must fight is his own establishment: media, army, intelligence and judges. While Trump is still losing in this conflict, Putin is doing fine – by his Judoka evasive action.

Recently a small tempest has risen in the Russian media, when a young journalist was detained by police, and a small quantity of drugs was allegedly discovered on his body. The police made many mistakes in handling the case. Perhaps they planted the evidence to frame the young man; perhaps they had made the obvious mistakes to frame the government. The response has been tremendous, as if the whole case had been prepared well in advance by the opposition hell-bent to annoy and wake up the people’s ire against the police and administration. Instead of supporting the police, as Putin usually does, in this case he had the journalist released and senior police officers arrested. This prompt evasive action undid the opposition’s build-up by one masterly stroke.

Recently he openly declared his distaste for liberalism in the interview for the FT. This is a major heresy, like Luther’s Ninety-five Theses. “The liberals cannot dictate… Their diktat can be seen everywhere: both in the media and in real life. It is deemed unbecoming even to mention some topics… The liberal idea has become obsolete. It has come into conflict with the interests of the overwhelming majority of the population.” Putin condemned liberals’ drive for more immigration. He called Angela Merkel’s decision to admit millions of immigrants a “cardinal mistake”; he “understood” Trump’s attempt to stop the flow of migrants and drugs from Mexico.

Putin is not an enemy of liberalism. He is rather an old-fashionable liberal of the 19th century style. Not a current ‘liberal’, but a true liberal, rejecting totalitarian dogma of gender, immigration, multiculturalism and R2P wars. “The liberal idea cannot be destroyed; it has the right to exist and it should even be supported in some things. But it has no right to be the absolute dominating factor.”

In Putin’s Russia liberalism is non-exclusive, but presents just one possible line of development. Homosexuals are not discriminated against nor promoted. There are no gay parades, no persecution of gays, either. Russian children aren’t being brainwashed to hate their fathers, taken away from their families and given to same-sex maniacs, as it happened in the recent Italian case. Kids aren’t being introduced to joys of sex in primary schools. People are not requested to swear love to transgenders and immigrants. You can do whatever you wish, just do not force others to follow you – this is Putin’s first rule, and this is true liberalism in my book.

There is very little immigration into Russia despite millions of requests: foreigners can come in as guest workers, but this does not lead to permanent residency or citizenship. The Police frequently check foreign-looking people and rapidly deport them if found in breach of visa rules. Russian nationalists would want even more action, but Putin is a true liberal.

Russia is a state where ‘toxic masculinity’ and ‘white guilt’ are unheard of. Boys are not forced into homosexuality; girls do not have to claim MeToo. This attitude had made Putin a cult figure among Europeans dissatisfied with mass migration, with gender totalitarianism, with feminist rule and endless wars. This is one of the reasons he is so hated by promoters of the New World Order and admired by the ordinary people.

ORDER IT NOW

I am certain this love of ordinary Europeans causes a happy smirk on his lips, now and then. But Putin and his administration want to be friendly with the US, the UK and Europe. This is their first priority. If the West weren’t so intransigently hostile, Russia would be its friendly giant. However, long experience had taught Putin that he can’t surrender in exchange for empty promises. He wants to fix a deal with the US, first of all. A deal that would allow Russia to live the way it wants and act as the international law permits without becoming an object of American fury.

Why does Putin care about the US? Why can’t he just stop taking dollars? This means he is an American stooge! – an eager-for-action hothead zealot would exclaim. The answer is, the US has gained a lot of power; much more than it had in 1988, when Reagan negotiated with Gorbachev. The years of being the sole superpower weren’t wasted. American might is not to be trifled with.

  • The US can forbid Russians to carry on their foreign trade in US dollars via US banks, and Russia’s economy would plummet.
  • The US can forbid the export of high tech to Russia, as it did in the Soviet era, and Russia would grind to a standstill.
  • The US can use its copyright and license system to stop Russian computers from functioning. They already tried to forbid the Russians from using computer scripts; they can block all Microsoft-based and Apple computers in Russia. They can forbid the usage of processors, like they have tried now with Huawei.
  • They can give Russia the full treatment of Iran and North Korea and ban its exports.
  • They can attack the Russian power grid and computerised processes in an act of cyber warfare, as the New York Times insinuated.

True, Russia is big enough to survive even that treatment, but Russians have got used to a good life, and they won’t cherish being returned to the year 1956. They took action to prevent these worst-case scenarios; for instance, they sold much of their US debt and moved out of Microsoft, but these things are time-consuming and expensive. Putin hopes that eventually the US will abandon its quest for dominance and assume a live-and-let-live attitude as demanded by the international law. Until it happens, he is forced to play by Washington rules and try to limit antagonism.

An experienced broker came in, promising to deliver the deal. It is the Jewish state, claiming to have the means to navigate the US in the desired direction. This is a traditional Jewish claim, used in the days of the WWI to convince the UK to enter the deal: you give us Palestine; we shall bring the US into the European war on your side. Then it worked: the Brits and their Aussie allies stormed Gaza, eventually took over the Holy Land, issued the Balfour declaration promising to pass Palestine to the Jews, and in return, fresh American troops poured into the European theatre of war, causing German surrender.

This time, the Jewish state proposed that Putin should give up his ties with Iran; in return, they promised to assist in general warming of Russo-American relations. Putin had a bigger counter-proposal: Let the US lift its Iran sanctions and withdraw its armed forces from Syria, and Russia will try to usher Iranian armed forces out of Syria, too. The ensuing negotiations around Iran-Syria deal would lead to recognition of the US and Israel interests in Syria, and further on it could lead to negotiations in other spheres.

This was a clear win-win proposal. Iran would emerge free of sanctions; Israel and the US would have their interests recognised in Syria; the much-needed dialogue between Russia and the US will get a jump-start. But Israel does not like win-win proposals. The Jewish state wants clear victories, preferably with their enemy defeated, humiliated, hanged. Israel rejected the proposal, for it wanted Iran to suffer under sanctions.

The Russian proposal had been first sounded in September last year, and it was discussed behind the closed doors in the Israeli Knesset (Parliament). Prime Minister Netanyahu said: “The Russians asked us to open the gates for them in Washington”. Netanyahu rejected the Russian proposals because he thought the re-imposition of U.S. sanctions on Iran could be used as leverage on the Iranians over Syria — not the other way around, wrote a knowledgeable Israeli journalist Barak Ravid of Channel 13. “Netanyahu refused to show any flexibility on the issue of U.S. sanctions,” – he quoted an Israeli official.

Russians agreed to the weird idea of Russian and American security advisers meeting in Jerusalem, hoping it would lead to a breakthrough. My readers remember that I was very worried about this trilateral meeting of a Russian representative with the notorious warmongers John Bolton and Netanyahu. Israeli media played the summit up as the pivotal point for the region. Russia would part with Iran and pivot to Israel and the US, they predicted. This will be a new Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, of Russia coming to terms with the aggressor. Good-bye, Iran, welcome, Israel.

However the gift of prophecy had been taken away from the people of Israel and given to fools, said the ever-knowing Talmud (Baba Batra 12b). The Russian representative at the summit, Nikolai Patrushev, while being friendly to Israel, didn’t pivot away from Iran. He denied Tehran is the key threat to regional security. “In trilateral Jerusalem summit, Russia sides with Iran, against Israel and US. Senior Russian official stands by Tehran’s claim that US drone was shot down in Iranian airspace, defends rights of foreign troops to remain in Syria despite Israeli opposition” – concluded an Israeli newspaper.

Russia is friendly to Israel, as many Israelis are connected to Russia by their own, or their parents’ birth. An even stronger reason is that Jews are the top dog in the US, and the Jewish state can open many doors in Washington. Jews and the Jewish state would be as important as, say, the Kurds, if they did not have a hold on the US.

Russia certainly wants to live in peace with the US, but not at the price Mr Netanyahu suggested. Mr Patrushev condemned the US sanctions against Iran. He said that Iran shot down the giant American drone RQ-4A Global Hawk worth more than a hundred million dollars over Iranian territory, not in the international airspace as the Pentagon claimed. He stated that American “evidence” that Iran had sabotaged tankers in the Persian Gulf was inconclusive. Russia demanded that the United States stop its economic war against Iran, recognize the legitimate authorities of Syria, led by President Bashar Assad, and withdraw its troops from Syria. Russia expressed its support for the legitimate government in Venezuela. Thus, Russia showed itself at this difficult moment as a reliable ally and partner, and at the same time assured the staggering Israeli leadership of its friendship.

ORDER IT NOW

The problem is that the drive for war with Iran is not gone. A few days ago, the Brits seized an Iranian super-tanker in the Straits of Gibraltar. The tanker was on its way to deliver oil to Syria. Before that, the United States had almost launched a missile attack on Iran. At the last moment, when the planes were already in the air, Trump stopped the operation. It is particularly disturbing that he himself unambiguously hinted that the operation was launched without his knowledge. That is, the chain of commands in the US is now torn, and it is not clear who can start a war. This has to be taken into account both in Moscow and in Tehran.

The situation is daunting. President Trump may want to climb down from that tall tree he had driven himself into when he led his country out of a multilateral nuclear deal with Iran. But he is hampered by his “deep state”, by Pompeo and Bolton; about the latter, Trump himself said that he wants to fight with the whole world. Presidents can’t always remove the ministers from whom they want to get rid of – even the absolute monarchs of the past did not always succeed.

Let us hope that, given Trump’s unwillingness to go to war and the weak position of Premier Netanyahu himself, there will be progress in this matter. But meanwhile Trump introduced new sanctions against Iran; the Iranian leader called the American leadership “insane”; the Americans are again threatening to “completely destroy” Iran.

Russia wants to help Iran, not out of sheer love to the Islamic Republic, but as a part of its struggle for multi-polar world, where independent states carry on the way they like. Iran, North Korea, Venezuela – their fight for survival is a part and parcel of Russia’s struggle. If these states will be taken over, Russia can become the next victim, Putin feels.

President Trump seems to have some positive ideas, but his hands are tied up. At the July 4 parade, his own Pentagon cruelly laughed over his wish to parade tanks in Washington. They had sent a few rusty old paint-peeling tanks, though the president demanded to send the best and most excellent equipment. Thus Trump had been shown that he can’t impose his will even over his own army.

In this situation, Putin tries to build bridges to the new forces in Europe and the US, to work with nationalist right. It is not the most obvious partner for this old-fashioned liberal, but they fit into his idea of multi-polarity, of supremacy of national sovereignty and of resistance to the world hegemony of Atlantic powers. His recent visit to Italy, a country with strong nationalist political forces, had been successful; so was his meeting with the Pope.

In the aftermath of the audience with the Pope, Putin strongly defended the Catholic Church, saying that “There are problems, but they cannot be over-exaggerated and used for destroying the Roman Catholic Church itself. I get the feeling that these liberal circles are beginning to use certain problems of the Catholic Church as a tool for destroying the Church itself. This is what I consider to be incorrect and dangerous. After all, we live in a world based on Biblical values and traditional values are more stable and more important for millions of people than this liberal idea, which, in my opinion, is really ceasing to exist”. For years, the Europeans haven’t heard this message. Perhaps this is the right time to listen.

    R. Abdimi from Haifa said: From the time the Temple was destroyed, prophecy was taken away from the prophets and given to sages. Is it really true that no sage [prior to the Destruction] was a prophet? This is what he [R. Abdimi] meant: Although prophecy was taken from the prophets [at the time of the Destruction], it was not taken from the sages. Amemar said: A sage is even greater than a prophet, as it says, And a prophet has a heart of wisdom [the word “wisdom” is from the same root as “sage”] (Psalm 90:12). Which do we compare with which? I would say [that we compare] the lesser to the greater [i.e. prophet to sage]. Abaye said: Know that one great man will state something and [the same thing] will be stated in the name of another great man. Rava said: What is the difficulty? Perhaps both of them were of one destiny? Rather, Rava said: Know that one great man will state something and then the same statement will be made in the name of R. Akiba b. Yosef. Rav Ashi said: What is the difficulty? Perhaps concerning this matter, he [the first sage] had the same destiny [as R. Akiba]. Rather, know that a great man can state something and [sometime later] it will be stated as halakhah to Moses from Sinai. But perhaps [the sage came to this statement] like a blind man [finds his way] through a window. But did he not provide a reasoned explanation [for his opinion]?

    Do not expect anything on the Ukraine in the near future. Trump wants the DNC to nominate guaranteed loser Biden. Then he can beat him senseless using ‘Ukrainian tampering with U.S. elections’ via Biden’s family business interests (1).

    Now that the Mueller exoneration is complete, the door is open to improved U.S. – Russia relations. The important thing is looking at Putin’s and Trump’s actions, more so than their words.

    Trump’s words sound ‘officially concerned’ about Crimea. However, this is primarily for EU consumption. What actions has the Trump administration taken about Crimea? Little or nothing depending on how you score the matter. So… tacit acknowledgement pending a quid pro quo.

    Putin administration words (but not Putin himself) have said strong sounding things about Iran. However, there are no actions that support a deep relationship.
    — Russia sells munitions to Iran on a ‘cash & carry’ basis along with many other nations including Turkey. Russia and Israel have much stronger ties on the military equipment basis. Look at their recent joint sale of AWACS to India (2).
    — Russia continues to let the Israeli air force freely strike Iranian al’Hezbollah and al’Quds targets in Syria.

    It looks like the quid pro quo arrangement will be Crimea for an Iranian exit from Syria. It’s a deal that would help peace throughout the region.

    Actually, Trump is using Bolton against the deep state.

    First and foremost, it is and advanced and skillful form of ‘Good Cop – Bad Cop‘. When Bolton says something and Trump openly disagrees, it places the Fake Steam Media complex in an untenable position. If they treat the story fairly, they embrace the anathema of saying positive things about Trump. But they do not have any options to twist the facts into their desired anti-American propaganda.

    Secondarily, it also cleverly drives a wedge between two DNC factions:

    -1- The true Clintonista believer, stricken by Trump Derangement Syndrome [TDS], will not accept anything less than Impeachment. Preferably followed by turning him over to the Fascist Stormtroopers of Antifa.
    -2- Those with a less deranged view realise that a successful Impeachment process would generate President Pence. And, he would be much more likely to accept Bolton’s advice. Perhaps Pence would pick Bolton to be Vice President.

    Look at the circular firing squad that is forming up in the DNC nomination process to see how Trump’s deliberate agitation of various factions is working in his favor. The TDS faction is winning and as a result the eventual DNC candidate will be unelectable.

    Russia is not caving in to “Israel” and it is thanks to Russia that the Zionists plans have failed to materialise in Syria. The author here does a very good job of explaining Russia’s position and between his and Saker’s analyses your argument is kaput and only fools would buy it. The Zionists went away empty handed with their visits to Russia and President Putin and if anything Russia’s resistance to the Zionists has hardened lately. People who have two dimensional thinking and a limited box of clues seem to think it is as simple as just saying no and digging their heels in but that way makes wars. Russia does not have the sort of power nor an insane leadership that it would take for that.

    The Izzies are not striking Hezbollah or Iranian targets in Syria. They might say they are but I assure you they are not. They are striking low value targets, whatever they can get at since the Syrian air defenses are concentrated around targets of value. They strike whatever they can and claim it was more than it was for public consumption. Look at the results, nothing is working out for the Zippers in Syria and today Syria is stronger than ever and already looking towards the Golan with a view to taking it back before this is over. Hezbollah already a match for the freaks of the IDF have never been stronger and their missile stocks are full. What has the IDF achieved? Rothschildlandia has come to the point of overreach and now everything they do only hastens their loss of options and prestige.

    No one, with the possible exception of Hillary Clinton and George Soros, wants a Iran to be a failed state. At the same time everyone understands that Ayatollah Khameni is the one giving orders and supplies for al’Hezbollah *offensive* strikes plus development of ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons. Iran’s ability to generate cash seems like the most practical option for external parties to force an end to Khameni’s provocations. Certainly, there will not be an invasion.

    Sanctions cannot be precisely aimed and Putin understands that problem. One can be sure that Putin and his people are trying to quietly deescalate the situation with behind the scenes action. Unfortunately Ayatollah Khameni is a sociopath, and is thus highly unlikely to accept any of Putin’s rational options to help the Iranian people.

    The IRGC is now the captain of Iranian industry and reaping the associated perks. Sanctions are diminishing what they have built and their personal lifestyles. The worst case scenario for the IRGC is a destructive naval/shore fight with the Saudi’s that wipes out hydrocarbon infrastructure on both sides of the Persian Gulf. It would take decades for those facilities to be rebuilt.

    The best hope for an internal Iranian solution is IRGC enlightened self interest. A fairly bloodless replacement of Khameni with a general from the IRGC. It worked in Egypt and the world welcomed that military solution. One can be 99% certain that replacing Khameni would be just as welcome.

    The new ‘General Ayatollah in Chief’ would have a free hand to disengage from Khameni’s extremism. The economic recovery from ending sanctions would guarantee internal popularity. Think of it as MIGA, Make Iran Great Again, though they are unlikely to use that exact phrase.

  19. ‘President Trump may want to climb down from that tall tree he had driven himself into’, and that would be to his credit. There needs to be an environment where threats to annihilate others are not countenanced. Moscow pursues its own interests so not to ‘become the next victim’.

  21. ” Presidents can’t always remove the ministers from whom they want to get rid of – even the absolute monarchs of the past did not always succeed.”

    You may be right, Israel. Strictly as a matter of Executive authority, Trump could fire John Bolton without having to ask Congress to impeach and remove him. Bolton’s position is that of a hired Executive Branch employee, who didn’t need to be approved by the Senate because he was a civilian, but I can see your point. It would be complicated, politically. Trump would anger the people who wanted him to appoint Bolton in the first place.

    Given Trump’s past performance, I would think that he would propbably replace Bolton with somebody even worse, like Eliot Abrams. That’s the kind of thing I’ve come to expect of Trump, at this point.

    Yes they still enjoy overwhelming control of the narrative, but their control of actual opinions is far below what it once was and it is a one way street. Nobody returns to the Zionist paradigm having once escaped it and we’re all practically born into it with exception of some of my brothers and sisters from other countries, I’m Aussie. That control of the narrative is exactly what they are losing.

    So far they’re about as far advanced on all fronts geographically and politically speaking that they ever reached and the slow carve up of Palestine has long since gone beyond a joke. Matheematically it is over. A look at a map of the situation is heartbreaking as I am sure you know. Yet bad as it is, the Golan too, this marks the high water line for them I think. They might control a lot of what they want, but they will never own it. As their narrative control slips, as the mask covering their true face can no longer hide the horns then there will come a day when the balance shifts and it will be backwards from there on. I’ve long hoped for overreach by them and Trump might still be the man to deliver.

Indeed given they and Saudi Arabia will probably exit stage left about the same time, I’ve already said I will not go on Hajj until the Saudi regime is gone. Hajj is an imperitive for Muslims but I will not go to Meccah for any other reason than to free it from Saudis until they are gone. So best I wait a bit. Imperitive or not, I would not dare to put myself inside the borders of a state which condemns me to death for criticising it’s Godless regime. This threat to me as a Muslim is what makes the regime illigitimate in Islamic viewpoint and I wait for the rest of the Islamic Ummah to wake up to this. Saudis as well as their stinking Wahhabi cult must be eradicated alongside their Zionist masters,.

    Bombastic and incredibly moronic, vapid and shallow article. There are no “old-fashioned” and “new-fashioned” liberals, fake liberal “Jew.” Putin is not “old-fashioned liberal” anymore than he is a nationalist. Putin is just a colorless bureaucrat. The man has been ardent communist for most of his life, and when communism ended in 1991 they all became professional… something else — whichever endeavor was more profitable to act representing it. They are all colorless bureaucrats just like Putin is. All former communist countries have loads of them, I know we do all over former Yugoslavia.

    But the basic ignorance of the fake Jew who wrote this Teletubbies piece is astounding. He doesn’t even know what liberals are, what their beliefs are made of. Liberals are born from Enlightenment idea of a global, cosmopolitan society which is disembarrassed of religion, national culture, family, gender and social class and any sense of linkage through shared blood and land. For true liberals any national leader standing against this project, any contrary national culture, or national pride displayed in a nation’s achievements, plainly constitutes an obstacle to this prospective universal realm — and must be destroyed (for the ancients the very notion of “man” did not exist; there were only men: Romans, Greeks, Egyptians and so on, which obviously stands in opposition to universal, cosmopolitan “man”). In that respect you have to understand the liberal preoccupation with the gender and homosexuality: according to their teachings, they are simply trying to erase that “identity” or “social construct.” It stands in the tenets of Enlightenment and liberals are following their “enlightened” Rousseauian culture.

    So is bureaucrat Putin liberal of not? If he is true liberal, he’d embrace liberal gospel, instead the bureaucrat speaks of pluralism which privileges one’s culture, history, religiosity and ties of blood, land and language as well as the path to the “re-sovereigntisation” of a people — all which stand in stark contrast to universal ideas of liberalism. Who is liberal in this matter and who is not? That is obvious. This is the lesson of logic as well as knowledge and understanding which the author, a liberal fake Jew, did not know (yet I don’t expect liberal authors to know such things; I would however caution against making preposterous claims based on ignorance, lack of understanding, logic and knowledge).

    As for Russians living richer lifestyles, that is expected. After all Russia is the wealthiest country on the planet in terms of natural resources and there are no more other Soviet states which it have to sustain, nurse and nurture. Russkies are still much less richer than Middle Eastern monarchies, even though it is even richer in natural resources than they are. That too is expected, for ME kingdoms and monarchies only have one oligarch (the ruling dynasty) whereas them Russians have myriads, and all of them have to take resources for themselves, thus leaving Russian people with less and less. It always preferable to have one parasite than multiple ones.

    Also, since we have a situation that colorless bureaucrat Putin is allowing homosexuality to exist and thrive even as long as it is not presented to the children, then so must be allowed existence of pedophilia and all other sexual depravities and derangement. After all pedophiles are not raping anyone, they are simply buying sex with children in exchange for gifts and if 12 or 14 yo wants to have sex then it should also be allowed to do it. Isn’t it interesting how you cannot have right of free speech in Russia, but homosexuals can enjoy in their rights. There is no also no 2nd Amendment rights in Russia. Russia is not a free country. No country with such anti-free speech arrangement as Russia has could ever be a free country. Ffs you are not even allowed to write comments in Russky media if they are not approved first. Our former Yugo countries are also not free countries.

    Euro countries are also not free countries. They cannot write or talk freely (as an extreme example of “free country Germania,” there Germans are even facing decades prison sentences for questioning official stories or narratives). We in former Yugovina are not allowed the rights of free speech or referendums, or any other endevour which threatens political power of masonic mercenary disciples. All Euro countries are facing similar controls and restrictions of basic rights like free speech. Only America still have these basic rights. In American media, if not corporate propaganda outlets, you can write freely and say whatever you want to say. In euro or in Russky you cannot. So much for Russkies or Euros being free.

    WWII was fought to force the Jews in Hungary, Germany, Poland, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, to immigrate to British Palestine and French Syria so that the Jewish state could be formed, and the ethnic cleansing surrounding weaponized immigration into Palestine could avoid being classified as aggressive private interest terrorism, and instead be classified as action of a nation state conducting war in its self interest (see Palin Commission for more).

    The traditional Jewish state claim, used in the days of the WWI to convince the UK to enter the deal: you give us Palestine; we shall bring the US into the European war on your side. Then it worked: the Brits and their Aussie allies stormed Gaza, eventually took over the Holy Land, issued the Balfour declaration promising to pass Palestine to the Jews, and in return, fresh American troops poured into the European theatre of war, causing German surrender.

    Israel does not like win-win proposals. The Jewish state wants clear victories, preferably with their enemy defeated, humiliated, hanged.

    It’s not just Moscow yuppies. Visit any provincial city in Russia today and you’d see that it looks way better than it ever did in the USSR. There are cafes everywhere and lots of people in them spending serious money, because they can afford that. Drive on any road, in or between the cities, and you can see that the roads are in a better shape than they ever were, and there are lots of gas stations, cafes, and hotels along them, all doing brisk business. Russians have ten times more cars now than they had in the USSR, and they drive a lot.

    Putin is just trying to pay as little as possible, in state treasure and people’s wellbeing, for keeping Russia as an important pole in a multi-polar world. He is using rank ineptitude of Western leaders and rank idiocy of degenerate Western elites to achieve this. So far quite successfully.

    The other commenters should also remember than Putin is the President of Russia, not of Iran, Venezuela, NK, China, or anything else. He has Russian interests in mind first and foremost, not the interests of fellow travelers. States don’t have friends, they only have interests.

    You are right that the majority of Russians are a lot tougher than the competition. Obese, lazy, and grossly dumbed down Americans would lose on a level playing field to virtually anyone (maybe except Africans). But Chinese are tough, and so are many others, including Eastern Europeans and most Asians. So, Russia must tread carefully. What Putin is often doing is best described by Chinese phrase: sit on the bank of the river and watch the corpse of your enemy float by.

He could have been raised in a barn, but that wouldn’t make the man any of the barn’s animals. Raising something or someone in any particular cultural set doesn’t change what he is, or make her/him/it a member of that culture’s people should she/he/it lack genetic adequacy. You could have been raised as Marsian, but that wouldn’t make you Marsian. Or Chinese. Or Zulu. Genes determine what you are, they govern every aspect of your existence. You are obviously a libtard, since only libtards follow that utterly moronic thought you displayed there (a la Teletubbies, the vr kind libtards resemble by their mental and behavioral characteristics and unnatural indoctrinated views on things, all of which are the product of their inherent IQ deficiency and the indoctrination received from liberal propaganda; small wonder then that libtards are so IQ deficient, for it was a required condition in order for liberal indoctrination to take hold of them; it would be very hard, probably impossible, to indoctrinate with such liberal imbecility high intelligence people, thus we have libtards: Teletubbies kind of behavioral deviance and deformities especially apparent on sexual spectrum accompanied by very low knowledge base and complete lack of common sense and logical reasoning).

    As for your other notions addressed below, we don’t care about Russia or Russkies. We have no interest in their kind or that part of the world. I will say this though: quit pretending that you are peaceful people. None of you are. You have not seized continent size chunks of landmass by being peaceful. As for homosexuality and related perversions, they can do whatever they want to do, it is no concern of mine. We want that our people go on referendums and have say regarding any issue and then have that expressed will of the people become the law of the land (not the other way around like we have now where it is written for the people against their will). People fought against aristocracy before because of the lack of respect for their will, their labor and their sovereign rights as a collective. Time will come to fight again. “History repeats itself,” someone said somewhere. It’s an astute observation for the nature of things underlying world of humanoids did not change. It is the same now as it was 10.000 yrs ago.

    Here is some contemporary support for sally’s statement {..WWII was fought to force the Jews in Hungary, Germany, Poland, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, to immigrate to British Palestine and French Syria so that the Jewish state could be formed, and the ethnic cleansing surrounding weaponized immigration into Palestine could avoid being classified as aggressive private interest terrorism, and instead be classified as action of a nation state conducting war in its self interest (see Palin Commission for more). If you can prove this wrong please present your evidence.. thanks. Sally @ 37

    Hitler expressed in his memoirs the view that behind the Zionist wish for a Jewish homeland
    the real aim was conferring sovereign immunity on a criminal tribe.

    The Empire simply resents the fact that now it won’t be able to “democratically” bomb Turkey. See, CIA-organized coup failed, so “democratic” bombing was the only option left, and now this. The Empire is furious.

  89. # 91

    “Habiru”

    are the ‘runaway fugitives’ ‘escaped fugitives’ out of Egyptian imperial power, and they were considered “outlaws bandits”

    “Habiru” = “(fugitives [and for the palatial scribes]) outlaws bandits”

    a “habiru” could be a Canaanite peasant “tired and in debt” or he could be an Egyptian soldier tired of so many imperial lies or he could be an “Arab who does not pay taxes” (Remender that “Moses” father-in-law is an arab priest [Exodus 3,1])

    (A) This is a history, the history of ‘the tribes of freemen and bandits that not pay taxes‘, that is = ‘the story of the ArabHebrew goatherds of the land of Canaan’ who rightly hated pigs, and they loved goats

    the pig is the slavery of the valley under the power of the palaces, the goat is the freedom that leads to the great open space: the desert

    This is one history, at the end of the Late Bronze Age

    (B) Another history, very different, is the history of an Aramaic ruling class that came to the land of Canaan with money, books, pamphlets and Persian power

    this Aramaic ruling class was created in the forge of three empires, the Assyrian empire, the empire of the Chaldeans and the Persian empire

    DeuteroNomy 26,5: “my father was an Aramean”

    (C) a third history is the history of a religion, Judaism, widespread in the ancient world (specifically spread like fire by gunpowder among women) and that continued to extend until the late middle ages

    this are three history, three different stories, although of course one can find a Russian 60-70% European and 40-30% Turkish-Syrian-Persian who in his childish and / or religious fantasies believes descent from an ArabHebrew goatherd of “the Land of Canaan”

  90. sorry

    The Palestinian problem is dying of natural causes
    By David P. Goldman

    [MORE]

    I discussed in my 2011 book How Civilizations Die. In a 2011 analysis for Asia Times, I counseled Israel not to attempt to make peace with a Palestinian population heavily tilted towards hot-headed youngsters, and to wait until the declining Palestinian fertility rate had raised the average age of the West Bank population. Like Northern Ireland, the militants would find themselves married with mortgages (at least those who survived). Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu generously commented on the article when it was published.
    Although the aging kleptocrats who still run the Palestine Authority out of Ramallah won’t admit it, the time is ripe for the kind of peace plan that the Trump Administration offered at last month’s Bahrein conference. Drafted under the direction of presidential adviser Jared Kushner,
    The window is closing for radical Islam. That makes the present an exceptionally dangerous period because the radicals know that it is closing. Contrary to what Obama said on May 22, the radicals understand better than anyone else that time and demographics are against them. The Palestinians of the West Bank are better off than any other Arabs in the region by any tangible measure ”

    nauseating article of propaganda, where we are told that the “am ha’eretz” and “untermenshen” of “the land of Canaan” that live without civil rights and under military domination should not complain about the “people (of Lords)” (“HerrensVolk”)

    Ultimately, liberalism is at war with human nature, which is why it’s been vile in either its capitalist or socialist manifestations. There is much merit in classical liberal (libertarian, in modern terms) thought, but even they sowed the seeds of their own destruction by not taking human nature seriously enough.

  100. “Balfour Declaration of Nov 1917”

    The agreement which is actually a letter indicates that Palestine would be home to several ethnicities. That it specifically referenced Jews created some confusion to be exploited, however, the admin by Britain was to include some six ethnicities and in 1947 the goal was to create two definitive states.

    Fair rendering here in my view:
