The lineup of Democrats who have already declared themselves as candidates for their party’s presidential nomination in 2020 is remarkable, if only for the fact that so many wannabes have thrown their hats in the ring so early in the process. In terms of electability, however, one might well call the seekers after the highest office in the land the nine dwarfs. Four of the would-be candidates – Marianne Williamson a writer, Andrew Yang an entrepreneur, Julian Castro a former Obama official, Senator Amy Klobuchar and Congressman John Delaney – have no national profiles at all and few among the Democratic Party rank-and-file would be able to detail who they are, where they come from and what their positions on key issues might be.

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts has a national following but she also has considerable baggage. The recent revelation that she falsely described herself as “American Indian” back in 1986 for purposes of career advancement, which comes on top of similar reports of more of the same as well as other resume-enhancements that surfaced when she first became involved in national politics, prompted Donald Trump to refer to her as “Pocahontas.” Warren, who is largely progressive on social and domestic issues, has been confronted numerous times regarding her views on Israel/Palestine and beyond declaring that she favors a “two state solution” has been somewhat reticent. She should be described as pro-Israel for the usual reasons and is not reliably anti-war. She comes across as a rather more liberal version of Hillary Clinton.

And then there is New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, being touted as the “new Obama,” presumably because he is both black and progressive. His record as Mayor of Newark New Jersey, which launched his career on the national stage, has both high and low points and it has to be questioned if America is ready for another smooth-talking black politician whose actual record of accomplishments is on the thin side. One unfortunately recalls the devious Obama’s totally bogus Nobel Peace Prize and his Tuesday morning meetings with John Brennan to work on the list of Americans who were to be assassinated.

Booker has carefully cultivated the Jewish community in his political career, to include a close relationship with the stomach-churning “America’s Rabbi” Shmuley Boteach, but has recently become more independent of those ties, supporting the Obama deal with Iran and voting against anti-Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) legislation in the Senate. On the negative side, the New York Times likes Booker, which means that he will turn most other Americans off. He is also 49 years old and unmarried, which apparently bothers some in the punditry.

California Senator Kamala Harris is a formidable entrant into the crowded field due to her resume, nominally progressive on most issues, but with a work history that has attracted critics concerned by her hard-line law-and-order enforcement policies when she was District Attorney General for San Francisco and Attorney General for California. She has also spoken at AIPAC, is anti-BDS, and is considered to be reliably pro-Israel, which would rule her out for some, though she might be appealing to middle of the road Democrats like the Clintons and Nancy Pelosi who have increasingly become war advocates. She will have a tough time convincing the antiwar crowd that she is worth supporting and there are reports that she will likely split the black women’s vote even though she is black herself, perhaps linked to her affair with California powerbroker Willie Brown when she was 29 and Brown was 61. Brown was married, though separated, to a black woman at the time. Harris is taking heat because she clearly used the relationship to advance her career while also acquiring several patronage sinecures on state commissions that netted her hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The most interesting candidate is undoubtedly Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who is a fourth term Congresswoman from Hawaii, where she was born and raised. She is also the real deal on national security, having been-there and done-it through service as an officer with the Hawaiian National Guard on a combat deployment in Iraq. Though in Congress full time, she still performs her Guard duty.

Tulsi’s own military experience notwithstanding, she gives every indication of being honestly anti-war. In the speech announcing her candidacy she pledged “focus on the issue of war and peace” to “end the regime-change wars that have taken far too many lives and undermined our security by strengthening terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda.” She referred to the danger posed by blundering into a possible nuclear war and indicated her dismay over what appears to be a re-emergence of the Cold War.

Not afraid of challenging establishment politics, she called for an end to the “illegal war to overthrow the Syrian government,” also observing that “the war to overthrow Assad is counter-productive because it actually helps ISIS and other Islamic extremists achieve their goal of overthrowing the Syrian government of Assad and taking control of all of Syria – which will simply increase human suffering in the region, exacerbate the refugee crisis, and pose a greater threat to the world.” She then backed up her words with action by secretly arranging for a personal trip to Damascus in 2017 to meet with President Bashar al-Assad, saying it was important to meet adversaries “if you are serious about pursuing peace.” She made her own assessment of the situation in Syria and now favors pulling US troops out of the country as well as ending American interventions for “regime change” in the region.

In 2015, Gabbard supported President Barack Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran and more recently has criticized President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the deal. Last May, she criticized Israel for shooting “unarmed protesters” in Gaza, but one presumes that, like nearly all American politicians, she also has to make sure that she does not have the Israel Lobby on her back. Gabbard has spoken at a conference of Christians United for Israel, which has defended Israel’s settlement enterprise; has backed legislation that slashes funding to the Palestinians; and has cultivated ties with Boteach as well as with major GOP donor casino magnate Sheldon Adelson. She also attended the controversial address to Congress by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in March 2015, which many progressive Democrats boycotted.

Nevertheless, Tulsi supported Bernie Sanders’ antiwar candidacy in 2016 and appears to be completely onboard and fearless in promoting her antiwar sentiments. Yes, Americans have heard much of the same before, but Tulsi Gabbard could well be the only genuine antiwar candidate that might truly be electable in the past fifty years.

What Tulsi Gabbard is accomplishing might be measured by the enemies that are already gathering and are out to get her. Glenn Greenwald at The Intercept describes how NBC news published a widely distributed story on February 1st, claiming that “experts who track websites and social media linked to Russia have seen stirrings of a possible campaign of support for Hawaii Democrat Tulsi Gabbard.”

But the expert cited by NBC turned out to be a firm New Knowledge, which was exposed by no less than The New York Times for falsifying Russian troll accounts for the Democratic Party in the Alabama Senate race to suggest that the Kremlin was interfering in that election. According to Greenwald, the group ultimately behind this attack on Gabbard is The Alliance for Securing Democracy (ASD), which sponsors a tool called Hamilton 68, a news “intelligence net checker” that claims to track Russian efforts to disseminate disinformation. The ASD website advises that “Securing Democracy is a Global Necessity.”

ASD was set up in 2017 by the usual neocon crowd with funding from The Atlanticist and anti-Russian German Marshall Fund. It is loaded with a full complement of Zionists and interventionists/globalists, to include Michael Chertoff, Michael McFaul, Michael Morell, Kori Schake and Bill Kristol. It claims, innocently, to be a bipartisan transatlantic national security advocacy group that seeks to identify and counter efforts by Russia to undermine democracies in the United States and Europe but it is actually itself a major source of disinformation.

For the moment, Tulsi Gabbard seems to be the “real thing,” a genuine anti-war candidate who is determined to run on that platform. It might just resonate with the majority of American who have grown tired of perpetual warfare to “spread democracy” and other related frauds perpetrated by the band of oligarchs and traitors that run the United States. We the people can always hope.

    Not bad, but, still…..

    Just those two. We can leave the rest of “globo-homo” agenda off the table, for the moment.
    And, the last but not the least, that nagging angle about automation and (paid) work in general. Let’s not get too ambitious here. Those two, only, should suffice at the moment.

    She’s damaged goods.

    Howard Dean’s already said she’s “unqualified” to be the Democratic nominee.

    She belongs to a Krishna Consciousness cult run by some Hawaiian surfer dude that disapproves of “homosexuality”, which should manage to scare away both the Decent, Christian White people in the South and the Mid-West AND the LGBT circus and their metrosexual spectators at the same time.

    Further, some of the cult members have connections to shady financial crimes and may be wanted by the government of India. And who knows what connections she had to that activity, or what other crooked back room deals she might have been privy to in her time.

    Not to mention, the Neo-Cons already have a target pinned to her back, and their media enablers are sure to pile on if they see her as a threat to the American Death Machine.

    I think she says some intelligent things on foreign policy, and might be a reasonable choice for a protest vote, but you don’t have to be half-Samoan to reckon that a canoe full of holes ain’t gonna travel far.

  6. Adrian E. says:

    Regularly Americans vote for the less interventionist candidate. 2008, an important reason for Obama’s victory against Hillary Clinton and John McCain was that he had been against the Iraq war. 2000, George W. Bush said he was against nation building. Then, after they are elected, the neocons remain in power. Something similar again with Donald Trump who campaigned against stupid wars in the Middle East and now has surrounded himself with some of the most extreme neocons.

    Of course, it is impossible to predict whether it will be the same with Tulsi Gabbard, but unlike these other candidates in the past , she puts her rejection of neocons and regime change wars so much into the center of her campaign that it should be assumed that she is serious – otherwise it would be complete betrayal. However, if she is serious about this and is elected, she will be fought by the deep state and its allies in the media much more harshly than Trump, who isn’t even consistently anti-neocons, just not reliably pro-neocon. What they would probably do to her would make spygate, the Russiagate conspiracy theory, and the Muller investigation look harmless. She might end like JFK (a VP who is just as anti-neocons might increase the chances of survival).

    But despite all the risks, I think it is worth trying. If the US was a parliamentary democracy with proportional representation and the neocons had their own party, it would hardly have more than a handful of seats in Congress. Although they don’t have, a significant base of their own, neocons have remained in power for a long time, whoever was elected. At the moment, Tulsi Gabbard is probably the best hope for ending their long reign.

    But that’s the thing: they would not have a neo-con party. The financial backers of all the national parties would back neo-con candidates in all the parties, and would exert institutional influence on non-neo-con candidates to get them on board.

    A party is like a set of chess pieces, having multiple parties is like having multiple sets of chess pieces. The only thing that matters is the hand that moves the chess piece.

    Marianne Williamson actually has had quite a large following for decades in the New Age movement, which probably has some overlap with Democratic Party activists. She would probably steer clear of the usual political issues.

    Being kosher (notwithstanding the last name), she might be able to get the tribal stamp of approval, but war-mongering may not come naturally, given her previous career as devotee of peace and love. I remember when, as an innocent youth in the ’80s, I interviewed with a very well known Washington political organization. One interviewer, who I now understand to be a neocon but did not then, asked what should be the U.S. response to the East Germans shooting U.S. Army Major Nicholson. “Should we shoot one of theirs?” I thought I was being tested for excessive jingoism and suggested retaining the moral high ground. I later understood that the right answer would have been, ‘shoot a thousand of theirs for every one of ours.’

    Tulsi has zero chances as a Democrat. There is, however, a path to presidency for her (the one she will almost certainly not take): 1) switch to GOP, 2) adopt explicitly “citizenist” position along the lines of America for Americans, 3) challenge Trump in the primaries emphasizing his failure to deliver on all of his core campaign promises.

    If that happens, she will win primaries with ~50% chance and likely have >50% chance in the general election against the current Democratic field.

    Any serious Democratic candidate, and to some extent any Republican, must fly through the flack of Deep State anti-populist guns. I am skeptical about Gabbard because her policy views are already too good to be true. She is “cruisin’ for a bruisin’” and there is already a campaign to erase her from the debate in the manner in which Ron Paul was erased a few years back. Gabbard is an attractive woman and on camera she comes across as aggressive and a quick-thinking, highly articulate debater. Like Trump her instinct is to meet force with counter-force rather than roll with the punches and I think that is her best chance. In that way she calls the bluff of her opponents: Just how confident are they that in the end the public will prefer war to peace? These points add up to a realistic chance of success but given the Deep State’s stranglehold on the media she is definitely a long shot.

    De ja vu. I remember reading these very similar(not exactly but similar) sentiments about Barack Obama back in 2008. What a load of crap that turned out to be, but I do understand that not all politicians are cut from the same dung heap, so it is probably best to find out who is funding the little pricks while they are campaigning – for once they are elected, payback is due. In the case of Obama it was Robert Rubin(of Goldman Sachs) who bankrolled him, and of course, once elected it was bank bailout time.
    Then once Ghaddaffi’s gold back Dinar became a monetary powerhouse, he committed another crime for the bankers.

    “Is she the real deal?”

    Elect her and you’ll find out, and there lies the problem – you get to find out when it’s too late.

    On the other hand, she could actually be honest and sincere, but that alone disqualifies her as a politician(the kind that Americans are used to anyway).

    NTL, she’s got people’s attention and if for anything else – the people are anti-war, but the monied power brokers are definitely not which begs the question – will democracy actually happen?

    They are all going to go for the campaign money, which means lots of Jewish zio money will be in play.
    They will all take the Jewish money if offered.
    Then they will favor the Jewish side because they will need the campaign money again for reelection.

    Where do you get this “obsessive hatred of Muslims and Islam?”

    She’s been [insistent and consistent] using the term ‘radical Islamic terrorists’ which, unfortunately, is an accurate description of ISIS (the bane of the ummah). OTOH, last year Tulsi was a featured speaker at a Moslem conference in NJ, and she has been outspoken about freedom of religion and mutual respect. If you’ve got some evidence that she excludes Islam from that, please show it.

  27. RobinG says:
    @jack daniels

    …[Gabbard’s] policy views are already too good to be true.

    Not really. Too good to be true would be if she understood Putin in the context of the US and oligarch rape of Russia in the 1990’s and how he has restored the Russian economy and dignity; and if she recognized (openly) the US role in the Maidan coup and accepted the validity of the Crimean decision to return to Russia.

    Unfortunately, even though she’s taken a brave position on ending US regime-change war on Syria, in many other respects she remains quite conventional. She also promotes fear of DPRK, and who knows what she thinks about China.

    …she comes across as aggressive and a quick-thinking, highly articulate debater.

    Aggressive? Composed, confident, yes. Aggressive, no. Calm under fire is more like it. Take a look at the whole interview on Morning Joe. She really outclasses those squirming bitches. BUT, notice her (short) responses on Putin and Assad (“adversary” and “no”), real Judas moments. Does she believe that, or is she clinging to the Overton Window?

    From her own statements. Which I quoted in a previous post. I don’t have time now but you can go into my archives and find the post if interested.
    And then her support of Modi……she argued against inserting a ‘human rights’ clause in the US India agreement…..even after Modi directed attacks on Muslims in India. She said keeping good relations with India was more important. I don’t call that very principled. I would like to hear her explain that.

    The US is already supporting enough dictators and human rights violators.

    But we will see what she says going forward…..championing someone too early makes people tend to gloss over some of their contradictions
    I’m just saying don’t get all hopey changey at this point.

  30. Tulsi’s presidential timber but she’s wasting her life with the Democrats. Their consulting apparatchiks are going to stuff a bunch of incoherent slogans up her butt. If she wants a real antiwar platform she should steal it wholesale from Stein and Ajamu Baraka. Baraka built a complete and consistent law-and-order platform. He’s the only real antiwar candidate in this country. Of course the Democrat’s CIA handlers will crush Tulsi if she starts to make sense, so she’s going to have to take her supporters and jump to the Greens. She will lose, but arbitrary forcible repression of the party will discredit bullshit US electoral pageantry once and for all. Then we move into the parallel government zone in conformity with world-standard human rights law and destroy the parasitic kleptocratic USA.

    You’re never going to get anything worthwhile from a Democratic politician because they’re indoctrinated worse that the brightest little Pioneer in Juche class. Take Ro Khana’s meaningless pap.

    https://fellowtravelersblog.com/2018/10/23/ro-khanna-five-principles/

    What is this ‘we should’ crap? The law is perfectly clear. The right to self-defense is subject to necessity and proportionality tests, and invariably subject to UN Charter Chapter 7 in its entirety. See Article 51. Instead of this ‘restraint’ waffle, just say, the president must commit to faithfully execute the supreme law of the land, including UN Charter Chapter 7 and Article 2(4). That means refrain from use or threat of force. Period.

    Second, national security is not a loophole in human rights. Khana uses the legally meaningless CIA magic word ‘threat.’ Under universal jurisdiction law, it is a war crime to declare abolished, suspended or inadmissible in a court of law the rights and actions of the nationals of the hostile party. Domestic human rights are subject to ICCPR Article 4, HRC General Comment 29, and the Siracusa Principles. Instead of CIA’s standard National Security get-out clause, state explicitly that US national security means respect, protection and fulfillment of all human rights. To enforce that, ratify the Rome Statute or GTFO.

    Third, internationalism is OK as far as it goes, but Ro Khana doesn’t deal with the underlying problem: CIA has infested State with focal points and dotted-line reports, and demolished the department’s capacity for pacific resolution of disputes. You have to explicitly tie State’s mission to UN Charter Chapter 6, and criminalize placement of domestic CIA agents in State.

    Fourth, Congressional war-making powers are useless with Congress completely corrupted. Bring back the Ludlow Amendment, war by public referendum only, subject to Article 51.

    B.S. as far as the anti-LGBTQetc criticism goes.
    She was antigay in her early 20s, coming from a very conservative family.
    She changed that position long ago, apologized for it and became a supporter for gay marriage before Killary and Obomber.
    She has a 100% rating from the most recognized LGBTQ organization in the US for all six of her years in Congress.
    Her intense opposition to war comes from two tours of duty in Iraq and to nuclear war from the 38 minutes of total fear when Hawaii thought it was about to be hit by nuclear missiles from North Korea last year.

    I’ve never heard Gabbard say anything about Israel, so it’s really not clear what her position is on that. I’ve only ever heard from her when the news is about Syria, she wants us out of Syria. But Trump’s already pulling our troops out of Syria.

    Meanwhile she’s pretty liberal on immigration, wants open borders and all.

    Kirsten Gillibrand has also been called an anti-Semite for supporting the Palestinians, but she is horrid on immigration, big time pro DACA amnesty and open borders.

    Not a single Dem candidate is electable. Not a single GOP candidate is electable either. Trump basically just signed the Open Borders bill today, while his “emergency border wall” will be stuck in courts and never get built. Meanwhile, he’s promised to bust legal immigration wide open and make it much easier for every third worlder and his mother to come in through the front door.

They’ll also give you a better insight on why everyone wants to move to countries run by the descendants of Northwestern Europeans.

    I think she’s sincere and has firm beliefs on certain things, like being anti-war. I also felt that way about Trump when he was running. I still feel that way to a degree about Trump, but I go back and forth with how I feel about him. I have no doubt the hateful Jewish media wears on him and it appears pretty obvious Jewish money from lunatics like Sheldon Adelson has now had an affect on him. When he bombed Syria (twice) it was unwarranted and done in response to Jewish/media pressure. I didn’t watch his State of the Union address and I have no intention to. I was sick and tired of the holocaust lies over 40 years ago already and his speech is apparently loaded with holocaust propaganda. It’s interesting to compare Jews against Christians (gentiles if you prefer).

    Trump’s grandparents came to the US from Germany, he probably heard German spoke in his house when he was young and it would not be surprising if prior to and during the war the German side of his family supported Germany in the war, even if they didn’t let it be known (for good reasons). His family now has strong Jewish ties and he spits on Germany, even though his own grandparents were from there. Contrast that with Jews like Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban, at least one and perhaps both being dual Israeli-American citizens. But their whole world revolves around Israel, that is who they are loyal to and they use the US to advance Israeli interests. They obviously have dual loyalties, or perhaps only loyalty for Israel. The difference between Trump and people like Adelson and Saban demonstrates the differences between Christians and Jews. And the Jewish media is able to convince much of the country of a ridiculous conspiracy theory about how Russian tweets and Facebook posters stole the election, while the two biggest donors to the Republican and Democratic Parties are Israeli citizens but the whole country talks of “Russians” influencing American elections.

    Tulsi is an excellent candidate but Jewish power will break her too. Dr. Kevin MacDonald points out interesting facts about how Europeans (whites) are more individualistic and not tied to their race/people the way people originating from the middle east are (Jews and Muslims). Until Europeans/Whites work as a group to advance their interests, Jews will always have influence out of proportion to their population size. There are plenty of wealthy Christians in western countries and they have more money than the small Jewish populations, but Bill Gates, Steve Jobs (now passed), Warren Buffet, the Koch brothers, Jeff Bezos and others don’t work to advance European/White interests and I suspect whites will remain the way they are and so will Jews and that means there will be more battles between the two in the future. With all due respect to people like Ron Unz, Gilad Atzmon and a few other good Jews (although Gilad says he is no longer Jewish), there are white nationalists with PHD’s that say Jews must be made to leave white countries or the tiny, tight knit Jewish community will forever rule over these countries and their arguments are convincing. The last time a leader of a country made that a policy WW II broke out a few years later. I believe that is why WW II broke out.

    Just look at that picture. That is the best shot of her “surfing”? I have seen bigger waves in my bath tub. If you look at any of her surfing pictures, aside from the fact that she is always alone, meaning she never has to fight for a position on a wave, she looks awkward and unathletic. Just like the shots of Obama shooting, golfing or even riding a bike.

    And like Obama, you really have to wonder what kind of globohomo agenda is going on behind the scenes. She is 37 years old, a divorcee, remarried, with no children. Just what the world needs, more childless and barren women running countries. Her 12 month “tour” in Iraq was at a medical hospital, likely in the green zone in Baghdad. Now she has been sheep dipped and made a “hero”. Thank you for your service helping to kill innocent women and children, Tulsi.

    But what irks me most of all, is her crass usage of little mind control twerks like “aloha”, “surfer babe”, “cool Hawaiian”. A real surfer would never let themselves be filmed making awkward poses on ripples like that. A real Hawaiian would never say the kind of drivel she does about “aloha”.

    “…Once we realize that government doesn’t work, we will stop dreaming that this or that social problem can be solved by passing a law — or by creating a new government program — or by electing someone who will make Washington more efficient or cost-conscious.

    Senator McGovern is very sincere when he says that he will try to cut the military budget by 30%. And this is to drive a knife in the heart of Israel… Jews don’t like big military budgets. But it is now an interest of the Jews to have a large and powerful military establishment in the United States… American Jews who care about the survival of the state of Israel have to say, no, we don’t want to cut the military budget, it is important to keep that military budget big, so that we can defend Israel.

    If the answer to both isn’t “no,” then that person is of no use to the American people and should be dismissed.

    a woman who pins her hat on the value of blackness and the role of that history who also supports killing children in the womb, is a woman who does not comprehend what it has meant to be black and human valuation.

    Further its a very difficult juxtaposition to claim serving the nation’s armed services defending US citizens and then advancing policies (i.e. legal and illegal immigration) that undermine in every way the lives of the people one claims to have defended.

  104. Long time gone, I completely agree with Mr. Giraldi that, “America Is Ready for a Genuine Peace Candidate.”🤗

    Presumably, and like the distinguished anti-war Senator Rand Paul, Tulsi Gabbard has already completed the ritual rite of passage and has paid homage to Israel at the Wailing Wall? *

    (Note: Maybe U.R. Comment Research Specialist, geokat, can avail clarity on the matter, and perhaps tell if Ms. Gabbar has or has not “been there, done that”)

    Another (required) rite of passage shall be the prominent POTUS candidate’s, and by privileged invitation, address to Wall Street and AIPAC.

    So going forward to the excitement which will captivate American-voter attention during the upcoming presidential election campaign, it will be wise to track the “Favored Candidates” who are most accommodating to the special interests of multi-billionaires, for example, Haim Saban, Sheldon Anderson, and George Soros.🤗

    * For me, and due to the alt. media “flack” candidates routinely get for doing butt-kiss homage at the Wailing Wall, it seems (&not beyond the pale) that Tulsi Gabbard might have received a strategic Zio-exemption which drops such visitation requirement.

    There are a lot of very naive comments being made, that totally ignore the absolute power the Jews have over America’s culture and government.

    Peace needs a champion – peace needs something or someone to rally around – today, that someone is Tulsi Gabbard.

    It is all about votes. Votes are power. There is an ever-growing block of voters that want a peace candidate. If she can generate a 10% vote in the primaries she can get into the debates – would that not be great for peace? Putting the question of peace on the table is a victory.

    Would that not be a loss for the all-powerful Jews? Right now NO ONE will even talk peace, as the Jews want.

    If we think of the same person, W. Patrick Lang, Giraldi’s VIPS colleague, how exactly is it surprising and how exactly does his support widen Tulsi Gabbard’s base?

  110. Strengths.
    The courage, integrity, and commitment required to travel to Syria amidst a globalist war and meet with Assad is unparalelled in recent history. No other politician or member of Congress has such balls.
    Her anti-imperialist war doctrine is not an empty posturing stance. It is from first hand experience from two tours in Iraq at a base where mortar attacks happened daily. She was in charge of reviewing casualty lists and notifying families.
    I place her with Snowden, Manning, Assange, Binney in singular heroic effort to tell truth to power regardless of the cost. I hold her Syria mission approaches that type of selfless pursuit of truth-justice.

    She can’t surf, was anti-gay before coming around, is a Hindu cult member, divorcee, spinster, seemingly pro-Israel, she’s too beautiful… all are meaningless in the critical equation of honest leadership with integrity. Which is what this nation needs more than anything.

    Does anyone think the Israeli agenda-controlled ziocabal neocon oligarchy was pleased about that visit to Syria? Literal frothing and flailing, hilarious spectacle of outrage at the only true diplomatic fact-finding mission by a member of government to seek independent knowledge of the situation firsthand. How far we have fallen. A ray of hope.

    Assess the hasbara likud zionist chabad lubavitch propaganda directed at Gabard from the owned players and mainstream media narratives dirty tricks to gauge the amount of control over her. So far its telling. Expect swift boating.

    Weaknesses.
    I’d like to see her open up and take stronger, clearer positions on gun rights, abortion, higher education, QUILTBAG agenda, AIPAC, money as political rubber stamp, the CEO-Congress-Corporate revolving door, Islam, states rights, homelessness and poverty, immigration, electronic voting, the economy and a host of other problematic issues.

    In her interviews I find her compelling strength against the imperial war-monger doctrine unassailable. But the acumen of sound reasoning backed by complete knowledge of details on the full range of issues is lacking. I have faith that she will bolster understanding, coalesce policy on goals. Abundance of character needs sound comprehensive factual readiness for the storm approaching.
    Can she operate and deal in the DC shark beltway as an effective executive power broker? Without being broken by the political machine?
    Maybe, hopefully.

    Conclusions.
    Reviewing the line-up of corrupt, disengenous, deep-state controlled programmable robots on display for 2020 presidential elections, Gabbard is the only one that piques my curiosity.

    ‘She can’t win so why support her?’
    Besides the irrationality and inherent powerlessness of that statement, it is also false.
    The same thing was spouted profusely about Trump.
    The difference is that she isn’t making empty impossible populist promises. Just standing on her convictions.

    If she makes it to the primaries and her platform gets attention I can see an awakening of minds, groundswell.

    I can’t say with certainty that she is the complete package real deal. But I will say she is the closest we have come since Ron Paul. She has that true conviction that cannot be faked. An integrity based in continuity of character, apparent to the aware critical study of human expression, composure and behavior.

    The terms “antiwar” and “prowar” are not descriptive enough of one person’s leanings and an important trait that carries even more weight than pro or anti war is a person’s PROVEN stance on ACCOUNTABILITY of government employees and officials. If someone opposes a particular war that the USA is involved in, that doesn’t make them “anti-war” if that war is PROVABLY based on lies and faulty intelligence. If Americans disapprove or wars that ARE based on lies(and most if not ALL wars are!) then those Americans are TRUE Americans Constitutionally-speaking but not necessarily “anti-war”!

    An example would be fighting Fascism in WW2 embodied in Nazi Germany as opposed to “creating” war in Syria as a pretext to “humanitarian” intervention. War IS necessary if the USA is REALLY threatened, but just the opposite has transpired since WW2. The profits from wars are an inducement to “lie” the USA into even more “endless wars”. Let’s not insult Gabbard’s intelligence on this issue, because she IS a veteran and I’m quite sure she is more in the “pro-truth, anti-lie” segment than the “anti-war” one.

    I neither aprove nor dissaprove that, due the current wages for parliamentaries, which I am more keen on lowing them considerably. But that would be part of a communist program, and you see, Communism is not on fashion, but it is “populism”, be it left or right.

    What I support is what Juan Carlos Monedero is saying at that moment, which, as most what he says, has not only a lot of sense but also much of truth. He does not hold any position/charge at Podemos, or anywhere else, but continue being a professor, and I fear living at his home of always, in Madrid city. I know very well certain people of Podemos in the Basque Country whom I strongly oposite by their methods and treacherous ideology who are there only placed by the PTB to dinamite the left into pieces, disband it and disable it to win any elections, in a prospect of acute crisis of capitalism, already in its final stage, imperialism, and exponentially increasing social unrest which only could point to a natural turn of the people to rising the left to power.

    Gabbard is going nowhere, and while it’s true that the powers that be will try to bury her, they don’t need to. The simple truth is this: the American public largely doesn’t care about the wars and never has. There hasn’t been an anti-war movement of any significance since Bush left office, and that was mostly a phony anti-war movement in the first place. It was primarily an anti-Bush movement, and the bulk of the people screaming ‘no blood for oil’ would’ve just been screaming some other anti-Bush slogan had our current path of destruction through the Mideast never occurred. Yes, there has always been a small, independent-minded minority on both the right and left who genuinely oppose American interventionism. The vast majority of voters, though, don’t care much, don’t have strong opinions and will largely just follow their leaders. Rank and file Democrats now oppose drawing down from Syria and Afghanistan and want to ‘contain’ Russia. This is solely because Trump has made noises in the opposite direction, even if he hasn’t done much of anything. And a good portion of the Republicans who say they want out of these wars would support them if Jeb or Rubio were in the White House. There is a fair bit more genuine antiwar sentiment on the right now than there was 15 years ago. But it’s not a dominant issue for many people on the right who didn’t always oppose the wars from the get-go. And the mainstream left, again, has totally abandoned the issue.

    Only a tiny proportion of the American public considers the endless wars to be the most important issue facing America today. You don’t win campaigns focusing on issues that are regarded as unimportant and where most of the voters in your party oppose you on this point. There is no real antiwar movement. Another full-scale invasion of a previously stable country would generate some serious opposition, sure, but the current slow bleed of endless occupations and occasional opportunistic attacks on already destabilizing regimes can continue forever with little pushback from the public at large. How anyone could live through the last 15 years of American politics and not realize this is beyond me.

    1) She is definitely a liberal on social issues, having been a Bernie Sanders supporter. Of course, that could be a plus.
    2) What is her position on immigration? If she is pro-immigration, which I’d bet she is, that would turn off the growing anti-immigrant community.
    3) Is she even eligible? She was born in American Samoa, and did not move to Hawaii with her parents until she was two. Could that be a legal obstacle? I don’t know. Some thought that Ted Cruz, born in Canada, wasn’t eligible either.
    4) She is a Hindu, which might be a problem for many Christians.
    5) She has been divorced and is now remarried. Also, she has no children, which I think most voters like to see in a leader, as it represents a commitment to the future. Just look at all the childless leaders in Europe (Macron, Merkel, and Edna May for example) and what they have done to their countries.

    So, Tulsi does have a lot of obstacles. Still, I hope she overcomes them. Getting pregnant ASAP, before it’s too late, wouldn’t hurt either.

    Agreed, but I question the percentages against it that you enumerated. When you quote that 90% of Americans were opposed to entering WWII, that sounds more like those against entering WWI to me. After Pearl Harbor, which no one at the time thought that FDR provoked, Americans were looking for blood. And, remember, Hitler, being an ally of Japan, declared war on the US, which further strengthened the resolve for war against Germany. How could the US have backed down after Hitler’s stupid provocation?

    [At the time of the Danzig crisis] over 96% of the American people, and the Congress, were opposed to joining another European war. Seven months later when Hitler’s armed forces invaded Norway, a Gallup poll showed 3% of the American people in favor of entering the war and 97% in favor of keeping out…Over the years the percentage was reduced from 97 to approximately 85% and remained the same right up to the attack on Pearl Harbor.

The wars will continue, and, along with it, millions of new immigrants to boot. Full me once, shame on you; full me twice, shame on me.

    Don’t forget that some New York Jews declared war on Hitler in 1933. That was the same year that FDR also recognized the Soviet Union after Stalin had wrapped up his Ukrainian Holocaust (the Holodomor) of 7 million, and Hitler was just coming into office.

    Here’s a piece about the Jewish declaration of war several years before Hitler was finally goaded by FDR into declaring war on the US. FDR had been waging undeclared war against Germany for some years prior. Please note all this was in addition to the Marxist agitation for permanent world revolution which directly affected Germany (riots and assassinations and what not) and their boycott came at a particularly vulnerable time for Germany.

    Here’s the Jewish pilpul on Ilhan Omar. It is this kind of tripe that disapproves the theory of higher Jewish intelligence. Maybe the Jews need a lesson from the Jesuits on how to propagandize without being obvious propaganda.

    How To Speak About The Israel Lobby In A Non-Anti-Semitic Way
    https://forward.com/opinion/419476/how-to-speak-about-the-israel-lobby-in-a-non-anti-semitic-way/

    ”Don’t Use Anti-Semitic Tropes To Silence Jews Decrying Anti-Semitism….(That one is priceless..lol)
    One of the most unfortunate responses to the Omar brouhaha was how many people came out to say that Omar was right – because Jews do use money to silence criticism of Israel.
    This is deeply disturbing. It’s a gross combination of gaslighting and repeating the very things that have horrified Jews in the first place.

    Don’t double down on Jewish stereotypes. If in your denials that you’re being anti-Semitic, you find yourself accusing Jews or “Zionists” of using their power and money to smear and silence you, think about how that looks to us.”…(No you Jews think about what you do)

    They don’t parade it because it’s not popular. So while AIPAC does have a lot of support, it is hardly controlling U.S. politicians with money. It is rather offering them a pro-Israel credential.
    If this bothers you, your problem is not really with AIPAC, but with the millions of (mostly non-Jewish) Americans who want to know their elected officials support Israel unconditionally

    We can argue about whether AIPAC should be allowed to take U.S. politicians to Israel business class. We can even argue about whether AIPAC should register as a foreign agent, though given that 92% of American Jews consider themselves “pro-Israel,” this might be a hard case to make”

    Many, including the entire Democratic leadership, felt that Omar’s words invoked an anti-Semitic trope. Her tweet conjured the image of a Jewish cabal using cash to control the levers of power, which was reinforced when she named AIPAC (in response to a query from me); in the wake of Democratic censure, Omar duly apologized

    Attacking Ilhan Omar Isn’t Fighting Anti-Semitism. It’s Upholding White Supremacy.
    Rebecca PierceFebruary 15, 2019

    But others felt that Omar needn’t have apologized, and defended her on the grounds that she was simply pointing out a fact: that AIPAC does lobby for Israel — hard — raising millions of dollars to lobby for what it considers pro-Israel policies on the Hill, and sending U.S. representatives on fancy trips to Israel to convince them to support the Jewish state. These voices have insisted that it’s not anti-Semitic to point out the truth and criticize the “Israel Lobby.”
    Of course it’s not. AIPAC does have a lot of financial muscle. It is a powerful, well-run, well-funded lobby which is worthy of attention, discussion, and criticism. But it’s all about how you do it. Here are a few tips for avoiding anti-Semitic language while discussing the “Israel Lobby.”
    Be Accurate
    Our entire history is littered with stories of entire Jewish communities being ethnically cleansed and murdered by people who accused them of scheming, money-grubbing, subverting the good of their countries for their own purposes, and causing whatever ill happens to be plaguing a society. It is a long and awful history, and the grammar of these accusations is one that most Jews recognize instinctively.
    It was that long, devastating history that Omar evoked in her tweet, perhaps unwittingly.
    Of course, it’s fair to criticize AIPAC. But Omar did not criticize AIPAC. She characterized it, in a way that is false, and that got the story of AIPAC’s influence wrong in a way that played right into anti-Semitic tropes.
    For starters, AIPAC’s influence comes not from “Benjamins” or even from Jews, but from the American people, who are incredibly pro-Israel overall, especially on the right. What AIPAC leverages is not campaign contributions, which it does not make, but the already existing popularity of Israel among many politicians’ constituents.
    Compare Israel to the Gulf state lobby and you’ll see how this works. As Evan Gottesman put it in Haaretz, “Spending on lobbying and PR efforts on behalf of several Arab governments well outpaced similar pro-Israel expenses last year. Yet you don’t see American officials parading their support for Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates in front of voters.”
    They don’t parade it because it’s not popular. So while AIPAC does have a lot of support, it is hardly controlling U.S. politicians with money. It is rather offering them a pro-Israel credential.
    If this bothers you, your problem is not really with AIPAC, but with the millions of (mostly non-Jewish) Americans who want to know their elected officials support Israel unconditionally
    .
    The best proof for this is that as Democratic support for Israel has been on the wane, so has AIPAC’s clout. The fact that all the Democratic presidential hopefuls save one – Amy Klobuchar – voted against legislation that would allow states to boycott Israel’s boycotters shows that AIPAC is not all-powerful, and that its abilities are on the wane.
    Of course, AIPAC spends money. It spent around $3.5 million on lobbying in 2018. But as Aiden Pink has pointed out in these pages, most of its power comes from citizen activists and donors. This comes down to individual Americans looking to AIPAC to know how best to work on behalf of something that personally matters to them — as is their constitutional right.
    Not everyone has to be up on all the details of different Jewish organizations. But if you want to criticize a people who have been literally mass murdered on the basis of the ideas you may be invoking, you should be careful to stick to the facts.

    Be Specific
    We can argue about whether AIPAC should be allowed to take U.S. politicians to Israel business class. We can even argue about whether AIPAC should register as a foreign agent, though given that 92% of American Jews consider themselves “pro-Israel,” this might be a hard case to make.
    But if you want to avoid conjuring
    an anti-Semitic stereotype, even unwittingly, stick to the specifics.
    If you’re upset the U.S. gives Israel unconditional support despite anti-Democratic measures like the racist Nation State bill and the entrenchment of the Occupation of millions of Palestinians, and that the U.S. makes no demands that Israel stop oppressing the Palestinians in exchange for the billions of dollars in aid we supply it, you’re not alone. Many Jews share this frustration. And as an American taxpayer, you are absolutely entitled to this non-anti-Semitic opinion.
    So say that. Stick to actual things AIPAC does in your criticism. Talk about specific problems you have with Israel’s conduct and the U.S.’s support of that conduct, and the people who lobby for this support. Be specific about the things you wish AIPAC, or the U.S. government didn’t do.
    Do not allow your criticism to balloon into the kinds of vague attacks that well-known anti-Semites use when discussing Jews.

    Of course Gabbard would have to agree. But Trump wasn’t a GOP loyalist and Gabbard gets zero love from her party, so why not? An antiwar woman with a military record (who else has that?) with some populist ideas and credibility would fit in with Trump’s own agenda.

    Sure she has a few odd biographical details, but compared to the rest of the political mob she’s practically Mother Theresa. She’s also somewhat nonwhite, attractive, electable, smart and courageous, politically and personally. The Hate Trump Mafia all also hate her.

    Can you imagine the horror in the MSM if this ticket were to emerge? A non SJW but feminist war vet? Sincerely anti war, more so than most Republicans. She would easily split or take much of the female vote and progressive anti corporatist vote away from whatever Leninist ticket the Dems serve up.

    Neither the Israeli attack on the USS LIBERTY or the Israeli attack on WTC ever got in the way of the Zionists, in fact the U.S. went to war with Iraq and Libya and Syria all for Zionist Israel!

    Israel caused the death of 34 and wounded 174 Americans on the USS LIBERTY and some 3000 Americans killed on the Israeli attack on the WTC on 911.

  208. Glad to see Unz finally posted an article on Tulsi. I like her for the most part. What worries me is that she makes it a point to always say “regime change wars” while she seems to use a lot of the neocon talking points when she talks about “terrorists” and the war of terror. So are all wars bad to her or just regime change wars? She revealed it herself that ISIS and Al Queda are essentially US proxies, so why is she so sketchy about terrorists and the war of terror if terrorists are CIA/Mossad creations in the first place? She needs to clarify this.

    Second, she is pretty anti-gun/2nd amendment, even after she revealed to us that CIA/Pentagon is arming, funding, training ISIS and she thinks Americans are about to give up their last protection against this evil? HA! Come on Tulsi, address the causes of gun violence first, gun violence is a symptom of the underlying sickness. Poverty, CIA drug trafficking into the cities, violent culture, rap music, she should address these problems instead of jumping on the anti-gun wagon, that will cost her dearly right now. Americans have zero trust in our govt. after we find out they’re arming ISIS, along with all the years of training death squads in Latin America and elsewhere. Not to mention that most of these mass shooting have all the signs of being CIA-mercenary false flags to begin with. I think she’ll lose more votes being anti-gun than she’ll gain, thats really a minority of people shes appealing to with that. Talk about fixing the cause of the gun violence first Tulsi. Not smart!

    I know its tough to take a stand against Israel because of The Lobby and the media, just look at what they did to Illhan Omar, but I think Tulsi would do good to stand up to Israel. I don’t think I could vote for someone not willing to, theres no way you can be pro-Israel and anti-war, its not possible. Shes been pretty silent on Israel aside from the one tweet about Israel shooting Palestinians. Theres a lot of things about her Israel stance that are concerning. I think most Americans would back her up if she stood up to them. She needs to take a position on Israel before I could vote for her.

    Everything else she is good. She goes along with the lame MSM narratives and fake outrages a lot, which kind of sucks. I think she could easily beat Trump after all the backstabbing he’s done. Plus shes hot!

    Elizabeth Warren is boooring, she just doesn’t come off as someone willing to throw some punches and kick people in the balls, which is what we need.

    To follow this path, she would oposse such contrast to bragging bigot Trump that he would not have nothing to do against the power of the masses once they have found a leader to their measure

    I am seeing she is already on the road, and that´s a good thing to do, she should travel the country, as far as possible, to meet people´s needs and mainly see their faces and feel their worries.
    I liked a lot all those people I am seeing in the gathering, they seem working honest people ( one day I would like to travel to the US to meet this kind of people…may be I will be doing the Route 66….or something similar, I only once have been in New York….)

    Podemos in Spain bought a van through crowdfunding and traveled the country to meet the people to become third political force in Spanish parliament. Yes, it is possible, you just need to move and bring in by your side the people who want to live in peace and whenever possible in better conditions, who are always the majority in any country.

    Hi geokat!

    Given Tulsi Gabbard issues a polite “no thanks” to whoever is/becomes Israel’s Prime Minister on doing ritual homage at the Wailing Wall, her off-beat presidential candidacy will be favorably used by our Zio Corporate Media.

    For example, and at minimum, Ms. Gabbard could be branded an “existential” US security threat. The fabricated evidence? Tulsi’s latent proclivity to avoid “foreign entanglements,” especially as applied to The Land of Bilk & Federal Reserve Money.

    No doubt different than the abnormal-normal, Tulsi’s possible guest star “debut” at upcoming (staged) presidential candidate primary debates could avail to Zionist sneaky advantage. For example, nationally popular “Talking Head” worms, i.e., Hannity & Limbaugh, could post-debate, triumphantly boast how free is America to the point where even female “libtards” get Homelander attention.

    Dov Hikind: Traditional anti-semitism is to talk about Jews and power… Jews controlling. Jewish money dictates what happens and that’s what she was trying to say. She was saying about AIPAC… by the way, you were talking about the top 10, AIPAC doesn’t do well in the top 50 in terms of money that they actually distribute [notice the qualifier he sneakily added], which is part of American democracy. Maybe she just does not get that. That in America, you know the AARP, if your senior citizen, they are very involved in politics, helping seniors. Different organizations, by the way, there are Muslim groups that are involved in helping elected officials in terms of their races, where they believe, when they feel that those elected officials represent their point of view.

    Some of these are official lobbying groups whose primary purpose is to lobby governmental officials for pro-Israel policies. Others are groups or individuals that work to influence the media, academia and/or others in a pro-Israel direction. Some do this full-time; others as one portion of a diverse array of activities. While they span the political spectrum and range from hardcore supporters of the Israeli right to liberal critics of some Israeli policies, all support Israel

    Nonetheless, I have no idea what you mean about Tulsi being a Hindu Nationalist. Unlike the Jewish Mafia, I doubt if we’re in any danger of Hindus taking over the country.

    Tulsi Gabbard had a good go at her presidential primary town hall events in New Hampshire. I saw parts of one on the internet and was at another one.

    Gabbard’s message of getting the United States out of all this endless, unnecessary overseas war will play well in New Hampshire. In the 2016 New Hampshire presidential primary, Bernie Sanders benefited immensely from Hillary Clinton’s support and vote for George W Bush’s Iraq War debacle.

    Gabbard carries herself very well and has a very composed, captivating speaking style. She has an athletic figure and an easy going manner.

    Unless the internet is wrong, Congresswoman Gabbard has no ancestry from the sub-continent of India, and I’m too lazy to find out how her mother came to be a Hindu.

    I was wrong to suggest she was a Hindu Nationalist, but Gabbard is a veteran of war and politics and she knows she will have to have an answer for all kinds of things when she is asked on the campaign trail. A good presidential primary candidate won’t get rattled or angry, except for effect, when voters or reporters ask them dumb questions.

    I’ll give an example of a dumb question:

    Is Gabbard a Hindu Cashionalist? How much cash and loot is Tulsi Gabbard getting from Hindu sources?

    The story of Holodomor, i.e., mass starvation specifically targeting Ukrainians, is exactly as true as the assertions that homos are normal, or that open borders and multiculturalism are good for the country.
    There was famine at the time, but that’s the only true part of the story. It was equally severe in Ukraine, Southern Russia, Volga Region, and Kazakhstan. What’s more, there was severe famine at exactly the same time in parts of present-day Ukraine that were under Polish control back then. So, unless you sincerely believe that Pilsudski was in league with Stalin and that Kazakhs are Ukrainians, you have no leg to stand on.

    I don’t disagree with any of your points. I was simply referring to the fact that it was Germany which declared war on the US (on 12-11-41, 4 days after Pearl Harbor), not the other way around.

    In referencing this, I came across some info about this which I didn’t know. Per “This Day in History,” Japan pleaded with Von Ribbentrop to declare war on the US, which the German Foreign Minister didn’t want to do. He felt that the entry of the US would overwhelm the German war effort. And, Germany’s treaty with Japan only required them to come to their defense if they were attacked, not when Japan was the aggressor.

    However, Hitler thought otherwise, and war was declared. Crazy as it sounds Hitler, per the article, actually believed that Japan could defeat the US, then they could turn around and help Germany defeat the USSR! The more I read, the more I’m convinced it was Hitler’s incompetence regarding the conduct of the war which was the main reason why Germany lost.

  265. I don’t think Tulsi Gabbard thinks she will win the Democrat endorsement to run for President.

    Considering that the famine was simultaneously on the Polish and Soviet side, crop failure that year must have significantly contributed to it. Another contribution was of the governments (both Polish and Soviet) being reluctant to help.

    I did not research this specially, but from what I know of that period, on the USSR side crop failure was aggravated by the fact that peasants were forced into “collective farms”, which were much less productive than individual farming. They were mostly organized as a vehicle for robbing peasants of the fruits of their labor, which is supported by the fact that on occupied Soviet territories Nazis preserved those collective farms.

    Their lower productivity is demonstrated by the well-known fact that Russian Empire and Soviet Union before “collectivization” were big exporters of grain, as Russia is now, whereas in later Soviet years (1960s through 1980s) when the government wanted to keep the populace fed Soviet Union was a huge importer of grain.

    The Holodomor (lit. hunger plague) was caused primarily by Soviet collectivization and dekulakization programs which ultimately forced private land owners to hand over their grain, land, and livestock to the local soviet’s kolkhoz. There was a drought in 1931, but the biggest problem was that few peasants outside the destitute went along with collectivization voluntarily, Told they had to hand over their cattle to the kolkhoz, many peasants simply slaughtered their livestock.

    The collectivisation policy was enforced, entailing extreme crisis and contributing to the famine. In 1929–30, peasants were induced to transfer land and livestock to state-owned farms, on which they would work as day-labourers for payment in kind. Collectivization in the Soviet Union, including the Ukrainian SSR, was not popular among the peasantry and forced collectivisation led to numerous peasant revolts. The first five-year plan changed the output expected from Ukrainian farms, from the familiar crop of grain to unfamiliar crops like sugar beets and cotton. In addition, the situation was exacerbated by poor administration of the plan and the lack of relevant general management. Significant amounts of grain remained unharvested, and – even when harvested – a significant percentage was lost during processing, transportation, or storage.

    Wikipedka article

    Kulaks were supposedly wealthier peasants and petty land owners who were tarred as enemies of the working class and marked for liquidation by Stalin. Anyone resisting collectivization could be called a kulak. Any failures were attributed to “kulak sabotage.” It was class warfare.

    Because of the Holodomor, the Ukrainians hated Stalin. Not that they were alone. It was a huge mistake for the Germans to attack and alienate Ukrainians in the Ukrainian SSR at the outset of Barbarossa. Of course, attacking the Soviet Union at all was a big mistake for Germany, but Hitler fell for Stalin’s provocations. The Soviet dictator was able to use the German attack and spilled Red Army blood to rally the Soviet republics, and unite the Soviet Union as nothing else could have. It was what he wanted all along.

    Now FDR and his fellow travelers in the United States administration could arrange for a huge transfer of American wealth, materials, and secrets to “Uncle Joe” and the Soviet Union under the guise of Lend Lease.

Along with your supercilious abrasiveness and de facto defense of Stalin and his goons, I now have an idea of whom I’m dealing with. Anyway, what is being said is that the famine, if not engineered or exacerbated by the Bolshies, was not relieved by them either.

    Heather Nauert withdrew from consideration for UN ambassador. She gave some “family” excuse, but hey, could it not be the fact that her longtime lionizing of the White Helmets has become an embarrassment after the BBC admission that the alleged Douma chemical attacks were staged by opposition forces – abetted by White Helmets ?!?

    This revelation may be suppressed in the US, but it’s well known to the UN. The sham ISIS/Israel/US façade is crumbling.

    “What Dalati has done is highlight the hypocrisy and bias of Western media and government officials. The BBC report on the Russian “production” of Douma-chemical-attack-denying witnesses at the HQ of the OPCW in the Hague emphasises the dismissal of the event as a “despicable stunt” by the UK, US and France who boycotted the proceedings. French ambassador to the Netherlands described the Syrian civilian testimonies as an “obscene masquerade.” The Guardian ran with this statement as its headline, reducing Russia’s attempt to bring some clarity to the Douma attack to the unveiling of “supposed witnesses” in order to discredit such attempts to derail their preferred narrative.

    Now, it appears that the real obscene masquerade took place in the Medical Point in Douma, was constructed by the UK FCO-financed White Helmets, and was adopted by the BBC and other state stenographers as gospel in order to further criminalise the Syrian Arab Army just as the final liberation of Douma from Jaish al-Islam brutal rule was fast approaching. This obscene masquerade resulted in the unlawful bombing of Syria by the US, France and the UK. As Peter Ford stated, “this demands a public enquiry.”

    I have encountered Slavs before whom are either completely unaware of this targeted slaughter, or in conplete denial of it. And why would they be? To protect the precious Stalin? Can’t figure that one out.

    Anyway, it indeed happened just as you suggest but I’ve read a 3-5 million number of dead.

    I could go on into vast detail on this as my mother was a Black Sea German who joined the October 1940 caravan back to Germany that Hitler negotiated with Stalin. In that caravan 96,000 ethnic Germans were repatriated to Germany after 150 years of farming in the Ukraine. But hey, i don’t post, just enjoy reading the comments.

    And keep up the fight, have not read a single thing i disagree with you yet.

    As an 87-year-old American Jew, I strongly disagree with the accusations leveled at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) regarding her recent comments. They are not anti-Semitic. For all the years that Israel has been illegally occupying Palestinian land and seriously mistreating Palestinian people, Zionist groups such as the American Israel Public Affairs Committee have all too successfully managed to convince too many Americans that any criticism of Israel is anti-Semitic. That is just not true.

    It is more than past time that we Americans recognized the Israeli crimes committed against Palestinians and stopped supporting those crimes with ridiculously huge amounts of money and support for Israel, regardless of what it does. Bob Tripp, Reston

    Uncle Joe was a criminal (since early age) and a murderer (also since early age). However, if the person has murdered three people and you say that that person murdered ten, you are telling seven lies, even though the person in question deserves to be hanged for what he really did.

    As to “kulaks”, they were mostly industrious people with several equally industrious sons, and therefore became better off then others. Destroying their farming enterprises was an economic crime, destroying them and their families was a crime, period. My grandma and grandpa saved a family of “kulaks” with two children (their other two have died, as the whole family was thrown out of their house in the middle of winter), in fact, risking their liberty.

    However, upon exaggeration the truth becomes a lie, and the person telling it becomes a liar. If you don’t like this point, keep worshipping the lies you were fed. The liars would be happy.

    You are mixing your metaphors. Lazar Kaganovich was a ruthless Stalin’s sidekick, who reportedly made sure that the peasants in Ukraine receive no help from the state, so that he could boast about his “success” in leading Ukraine. Vicky (f… the EU) Nuland is a tool of the US neocons and globalists who was instrumental in bringing to power Ukrainian regime, which is shamelessly speculating on Holodomor myth. This regime is a creation and a pawn of imperial globalists. Its goal was (maybe still is, if neocons are dumb enough) to use Nazi-led Ukraine as a battering ram to beat Russia into submission for resisting imperial power.

    The House passed H. Res. 397 on June 27, 2017 by a lopsided vote of 423 to 4 (Roll Call 328). We have assigned pluses to the nays not only because the United States should stay clear of entangling alliances such as NATO, but also because the NATO provision that obligates the United States to go to war if any member of NATO is attacked undermines the provision in the U.S. Constitution that assigns to Congress the power to declare war. Moreover, the number of nations that the United States has pledged to defend under NATO has grown from 11 to 28 over the years, as the alliance itself has grown from 12 member nations (including the United States) when NATO was created in 1949 to 29 today. Although NATO was ostensibly formed to counter the threat from the Soviet bloc of nations, some of the nations the United States is now pledged to defend under NATO were once part of that bloc, including Albania, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic (as part of Czechoslovakia), Hungary, Poland, and Romania.”

    “During consideration of the Defense Appropriations bill (H.R. 5293), Representative Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) introduced an amendment to prohibit the use of funds in the bill for the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force Act. Enacted in the wake of 9/11, the AUMF authorized the president to “use all necessary and appropriate force” against the terrorists involved, as well as those who aided or harbored them. It was used as the authorization for U.S. military entry into Afghanistan in 2001, and over the years has also been invoked on other occasions by the executive branch to justify U.S. military intervention abroad.

    The House rejected Lee’s amendment on June 16, 2016 by a vote of 146 to 274 (Roll Call 330). We have assigned pluses to the yeas because presidents have been able to claim broad authority to go to war whenever or wherever they choose under the AUMF, despite the fact that the Founding Fathers never intended for one man to make this decision, and under the Constitution only Congress may “declare war.””

Since then, however, the AUMF has been invoked numerous times by the executive branch for U.S. military intervention not only in Afghanistan but elsewhere.

We have assigned pluses to the nays not only because foreign aid is unconstitutional but also because this bill would further interject the United States into a foreign conflict. Allowing the U.S. president to provide lethal arms to Ukraine in order to fight Russia is tantamount to waging a proxy war on Russia without the constitutionally required congressional declaration of war.

Fortenberry noted on the House floor that “the rebel movement is a battleground of shifting alliances and bloody conflicts between groups that now include multinational terrorist organizations,” that “sending our weapons into this chaotic war zone could inadvertently help these extremists,” and that “it has already happened.” He added: “The naive notion that we can deliver weapons to vetted, moderate opposition groups at war with other rebel militias gives no guarantee that our weaponry won’t be seized or diverted.”

    The House rejected Fortenberry’s amendment on June 19, 2014 by a vote of 167 to 244 (Roll Call 328). We have assigned pluses to the yeas because arming “moderate” rebels in a foreign country is tantamount to going to war, which would require a declaration of war by Congress.

The rationale for providing U.S. aid to Ukraine is that the country needs our assistance to resist Russian hegemony and build “democracy.” Yet the oligarchs wielding power in Ukraine are hardly “democrats,” and (because money is fungible) U.S. assistance could effectively be funneled to Russia in the form of Ukrainian energy and debt payments.”

    So what caused this widespread starvation? Just crop failures?

    Hey Mike,

    One of the leading Russian historians on the Stalinist period, Oleg Khlevniuk, a senior researcher at the State Archive of the Russian Federation in Moscow, wrote in his book “Stalin: new biography of a dictator”, regarding the famines:

    To this figure we must add the victims of periodic famines or starvation, which during 1932–1933 alone took the lives of between 5 and 7 million people. The Stalinist famine was largely the result of political decisions. In its campaign to break peasant opposition to collectivization, the Stalinist government used famine as a means of “punishing” the countryside. All opportunities to relieve the situation—such as purchasing grain abroad—were rejected. Starving villages had their last stores of food expropriated.

    Actually, that’s exactly what several, including you, have said here.

    When I wrote “no one,” I was referring to myself (it’s sort of a figure of speech for native speakers of American English in a dialogue which is a discussion between two persons, i.e., you and me) and I hadn’t noticed that anyone was “defending” me, so you’re wrong on that point as well. “…the starvation campaign that hit Ukraine was indeed real and targeted,” and “The area was populated by German farmers (Black Sea Germans) … And of course, Stalin targeted them too because they were German.”

    Please note that he didn’t say Ukrainians were targeted. He said Germans were targeted. I understand that productive Germans in areas other than the Ukraine had been targeted for displacement and destruction even pre-Bolshie. I further understand that they had been persecuted in many other ways as well.

    BTW, the bar was set extremely low for Kulak designation, including anyone who kept a single cow.

    I understand and have long been aware of that. You don’t even get the fact that with that statement you’re supporting my contention that the Holodomor was at least partly an intentional holocaust. The drought at the time may have contributed to the mortality, but that’s not the whole story as you seem to be attempting to imply, and as your comment immediately above indicates.

    You’re consistent logical failures, snark, and attempts to twist fine points are typical for a person who lies. And there’s something quite strange about your attempts to whitewash and cover up the Holodomor crimes. The more you people squeal and try to deny the truth, the more obvious it all becomes.

    While I can understand why they could be unaware of it, I also don’t understand why they would deny it when presented with the idea. Notice how vehemently I was attacked for even bringing up the subject, for instance. Some of them even agree with me that Stalin was a monster, yet want to cover up his and his henchmen’s crimes. I suspect they’re covering for his henchmen and we all know who/what they were.

    What’s particularly bizarre is the claim that it’s Deep State propaganda. How could that be when almost no Americans have ever heard of it? If anything, the “Deep State” has always had an interest in keeping Bolshie crimes hidden as is shown by the example of the filthy liar and Poolitzer prize winner, Walter Duranty. The “Deep State”even went so far as to “disappear” Gareth Jones for reporting the truth at the time. Eugene Lyons even apologized for knowingly falsifying the facts, if I remember correctly (I’ll try to find some time to look that up).

    Finally, TN Anon does express himself as if he’s unhinged with his wild claims, disgusting assumptions and adolescent smears. His defenders are hardly better. Thanks again.

    However, the answer to the question

    We have several questions here that we should disentangle:

    1. Was there indeed a famine that killed several millions? People seem to be agreed on this.

    2. Did the famine have a natural cause or component (crop failure due to weather and/or pests)? People don’t seem to take issue with this either.

    3. Did the political leaders make the famine worse on purpose, for political aims? This still seems to be accepted by most; and this is what your quotation supports also.

    4. If 3. is true, was the intentionally exacerbated starvation aimed at peasants (independent farmers/”kulaks”) in general, or at specific ethnic groups (Ukrainians or Germans)? I think this is where opinion diverges most.

    There is a collection of supposed secret service documents on the issue, prepared apparently by Polish and Ukrainian historians:

    Thanks for exhibiting honorable strength in your comments & not backing down from little & proud minds.

    You are very welcome.

    The despicable Izzy firsters (including the Trumpettes…you listening, Wally?) and bombastic Bolshie apologists only strengthen my resolve. If those wretched clowns think I’ll back down, they have it bass akwards, and they don’t know JS. Whenever I catch the type in another filthy lie, I write the wretches off and I’ve learned from the Izzies and Bolshies themselves to take no prisoners and they can look to Satan for forgiveness.

    I keep telling the putrid imbeciles that you can fool almost all of us dumb goyim almost all of the time, but not all of us all of the time, but they’re too smug and stupid to take either the hint or a hike, even with nice Izzy made sandals.

    And in case anyone is wondering about Tulsi, my new response is that the scumsucker, Walter Duranty, lives on, spreading outrageous BS everywhere.

    Chuck, thanks for the link. From the article,

    I would be happy if my poem “Babi Yar” would become irrelevant — the sooner the better. But that will happen only when anti-Semitism disappears.

    Anti-Semitism ( what a stupid term as he used it), will disappear only when anti-goyism disappears…

    I hope the goyim aren’t suckered, again, by any so called “peace” appointee (not candidate). I wonder how many Peace Prizes she’ll get for her efforts.

  327. On the Gulag issue:

    Article that Viktor Zemskov (historian during the Perestroika) published in the journal “Sociological Investigations” in which he clarifies the data on the statistics of political prisoners of the GULAG.

    https://culturaproletaria.wordpress.com/2015/06/15/gulag/

    [MORE]

    ( This is an Spanish translation by a group of comrades researchers, but you could probably find it in Russian, there is a link to the “Sociologial Investigations” review, and may be even in other languages, as well, if not, try to translate it from Russian or Spanish to your language, and spread the knowledge, compañero, contribute to spread the truth about communism! for the sake of the proletarians of the world! )

    I will translate only the introductory parragraph, so as you can make yourself an idea, and why not, open your mouth on the intent of translation:

    “The objective of this article is to show an authentic statistic of the prisoners of the GULAG, a part already has appeared in articles of A.N. Nudin, V.F. Nekrasov (1) and in the weekly “Argumenty i fakty”.

    In spite of the existence of these publications, in which authentic data are given with their documentary confirmation about the number of GULAG prisoners, the Soviet and foreign society is completely under the influence of the invented statistical data that does not correspond to the historical reality, contained in the works of foreign authors (R. Conquest, S. Cohen and others), as well as in publications of Soviet researchers (R.A. Medvedev, V.A. Chalikova and others). In addition, in the works of all these authors, the difference with the authentic statistics never goes in the direction of the decrease but exclusively in the direction of its increase. It gives the impression that they compete among themselves to surprise readers with figures, to put it in some way, astronomical.

    Here is, for example, what S. Cohen writes ( extracted from the book of R. Conquest “The Great Terror”, published in 1968 in the United States ): “… At the end of 1939 the number of prisoners in prisons and camps concentration grew to 9 million people (compared to 30 thousand in 1928 and 5 million in 1933-1935). (2) In fact, in January 1940 there were 1,334,408 prisoners in the GULAG camps, in colonies of the GULAG 315,584 and in prisons 190,266 people In total, between camps, colonies and prisons there were 1,850,258 prisoners (table 1), that is, the data offered by R. Conquest and S. Cohen are increased by almost 5 times.

    The Soviet researcher V.A. Chalikova repeats Conquest and Cohen, and says: “The accounts, based on different data, show that between 1937-1959 they were in the fields, which occupied huge areas, between 8 and 12 million people” (3). V.A. Chalikova gives a maximum number of 12 million prisoners in the GULAG (evidently in the concept of “field” includes the colonies) for a specific date, but in fact for the period from 1934 to 1953 the maximum number of prisoners in the GULAG was on January 1, 1950 and it was 2,561,351 people (see table 1). Therefore, V.A. Chalikova, following R. Conquest and S. Cohen, increases the authentic number of prisoners in the GULAG by about six times.

    He also made his contribution to the issue of confusion in the statistics of prisoners of GULAG N.S. Khrushchev, who evidently, with the aim of increasing the value of his own role as a liberator of the victims of Stalinist repression, wrote in his memoirs: “… When Stalin died, there were 10 million people in the camps” (4). In fact, on January 1, 1953 in the GULAG there were 2,468,524 prisoners: 1,727,970 in camps and 740,554 in colonies (see table 1). In the Central State Archive of the October Revolution, copies of the reports of the address of the Ministry of the Interior of the USSR sent in the name of N.S. Khrushchev with exact indications of the number of prisoners, among other moments after Stalin’s death. N.S. Khrushchev was very well informed of the actual number of GULAG prisoners and increased it by four times….”

  328. The thing is that the Soviet society had reached the highest possible levels of development in the smallest time a society has reached in the entire history of planet Earth, including that of today, for all its nationals in such a vast country as it was the USSR, through the achievement of full employment, full housing, full literacy and never before seen levels of access to higher education, culminating in the absolute erradication of poverty in the 80s …

    Ask yourself why such a system was overthrown by coup d’etat, ignoring the will of the Soviet people expressed by referendum shortly before the coup…..Well, the whole world, especially European proletariat, trained in warfare experience after WWII, was watching….and taking example on that model of society…..This is why a demonizing machine was put in march….at all levels, and not sparing recourses, so as to confuse the people and leave them without references so as to be able to defend themselves in front of the abuses by their exploiters…

    Since then, not only the Russian society, but also that of the whole world, has only suffered an involution, since the development process towards a more just society for all was conveniently put the brake on at that historic moment of shame.

    Now, Trump and his henchmen take us much further back to the gallop, not to the preindustrial era, but to the Stone Age … allied with Middle Eastern satrapies anchored since always in the Middle Ages….

  329. Well, on the “Holomodor” issue, here it is an article on origins of the very term “Holomodor”, in which it had, how not, an estelar role the infamous “Harvard University”, as well as the Galitzian immigrant community in the US, whose supported nazi sympathizers were placed in charge of Ukraine by the coup d´etat which overthrew the legitimate goverment in 2014, and was at that time, and continue being, widely supported by the US.

    This article, translated by “Cultura Proletaria” from avante.pt, which at its time translated it from “Rabóchaia Gazeta”, n.º 215, 21 de Noviembre de 2008, and whose original in Russian is available at http://www.rg.kiev.ua/page5/article12595/ ( currently disabled, for what I have tested, most probably by the current Ukrainian authorities…take into account that the PCU is forbbiden in Ukraine right now, along with the Russian language, and its members prosecuted under death menace by Nazi Death Squad battallions…..), I will translate it in its totality because of its short lenght…

    “Holodomor: The smoke screen of the system”

    https://culturaproletaria.wordpress.com/2016/02/22/holodomor-la-cortina-de-humo-del-sistema/

    [MORE]

    “The demographic losses in Ukraine today exceeds several times the mortality caused by the famine of 1932-1933, but on this the government does not pronounce itself. Why? The answer to this question was given to us by renowned Ukrainian scientists during a “round table” organized by the Communist Party of Ukraine.

    Opening the “round table”, the secretary of the CC of the PCU, Georgii Vladimirovich Buiko, said: “What is at stake is not the fact of hunger itself, which no one denies, but its interpretation as genocide.” Georgii Vladimirovich noted that “although the word holodomor has a root in the word golog (famine in Ukrainian), the content of both is substantially different. Holodomor (often in the Western media the expression Holodomor is used because of its similarity to the word holocaust (NT)), it not only means a great famine, but it is an ideological conception that acts on the consciousness of the masses, it is precisely from a conscious extermination of the Ukrainian people through famine. That is why it is convenient to begin to see from what, where and how the concept of holodomor-genocide was generated “.

    A special Harvard project

    On the origins of the term holodomor, Georgi Tkatchenko stated that “this concept emerged as an integral part of a special project of Harvard University that was used for informative-psychological distractions against the USSR. Some researchers attribute the authorship of the term holodomor to the American James Meiss. Although his works were not considered by the American scientific media, the architects of the Cold War noticed him and he obtained a teaching position at Harvard University. However, in the opinion of most researchers, the real authors of the exchange of concepts were the Ukrainian nationalists of the media of emigration from Galicia (region located in southern Poland, western Ukraine). In particular, one Dmitro Solovei, who in 1944 fled the Ukraine with the Germans. After exchanging German businessmen for the Americans, he published in 1953 in the USA. the book “The famine in Ukraine”, in which he assures that the famine was an instrument of extermination of the Ukrainians. Later, the issue of “famine-genocide” was developed by British diplomat and spy Robert Conquest. For his book “The Harvest of Sorrow” (“The Harvest of Pain” (1986)), he received money from the Ukrainian nationalists. Western scientists who analyzed this book showed that the author used material from the chronicles of World War I and photographs of the famine that affected the Povoljia region (Volga Basin in southern Russia) in 1921″.

    On the supposed denial of the famine of the early 30s by the PCU, Georgii Buiko considered such a very strange statement and quoted a note written by Georgy Kriutchkov, deputy of the people elected in previous legislatures, in which it is recalled that “even in 1990, the Politburo of the CC of the PCU approved a resolution on the famine, deciding the publication of archival materials on this matter. The political assessment contained in this document indicates that the famine of 1932-1933 constitutes a tragedy for the Ukrainian people. On top of that, the illegitimate acts and abuses committed during the collectivization were condemned. It is interesting to see that practically the same is said in the resolution of the General Conference of UNESCO in 2007”.

    Immigrants and help

    There is also a lot of speculation about the number of victims of the famine. Incredible numbers are evoked and a “deadly” fact is transmitted: the 1933 harvest was made by immigrants from Russia and Belarus. Apparently, there is even a decree that confirms it. “Indeed, such a decree exists”, said Professor Vitali Khartchenko, editor-in-chief of the magazine “Kommunist”. “But it was only approved on August 31 (from 1933) and applied in November, when the harvest was over.” And how many immigrants came? “In the archives there are very precise data: 117,000 people. Now, it is evident that such a number of people could not make up for the loss of “many millions”.

    According to Vitali Khartchenko, “one of the reasons for the tragedy of 1932-1933 in Ukraine was the very bad harvest in Povoljie, Western Siberia and in some other regions of the Russian Federation in 1931. These regions were provided with help in supplying of seeds, as determined by a resolution of the CC of the PCU (b) (Communist Party of the Whole Union (Bolshevik)). At the time when it was considered that the year had been relatively good in Ukraine, this republic stopped receiving this type of aid. In addition, under the conditions of accelerated industrialization, a very demanding bread supply plan was established. However, If there had not been the famine of 1931 in Russia and a sharp drop in the prices of cereals in international markets (which forced an increase in exports of cereals), the most probable thing would have been to avoid such a tragic development of events. .

    In the magazine “Kommunist” were published all the resolutions of the CC of the PCU (b) in relation to Ukraine. Since 1932, Ukraine received permanent assistance: seeds, food and rations. Similarly, the cereal supply plan was reduced to 200 million poods (a former Russian measure equivalent to 16.3 kg), compared to 1931. Subsequently, by order of Stalin, 40 million were reduced and, later, even 70 million. “

    Goebbels and the SBU

    Vitali Khartchenko also drew attention to the fact that “even some supporters of the hysteria initiated by the current president of Ukraine began to avoid the word genocide. This only testifies to the fragility of their positions. “

    An interesting example, which refutes the planned nature of the famine, was given by the head of the department of ideology of the CC of the PCU, Vladimir Pustoboitov: “Throughout the war, Hitler’s Germany did not use, practically, the theme of the “Terror for famine”, which, one might say, had been exploited in terms of propaganda. However, they knew the authentic information on the subject. The German Consulate in Ukraine prepared, in those years, reports for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. These documents are published. What is said in them is that the Soviet government did not calculate its resources well. He never mentioned, even the possibility of a planned famine. These documents were known in the services of Goebbels and, after their analysis, they gave up on the subject “.

    The participants of the “round table” recalled that the holodomor exhibitions, held regularly by the Ukrainian Security Services (SBU), where practically all photographs referred to the famine of 1921 in the Povoljie region. But in addition to that, the rector of the Jewish People’s University, Aleksandr Naiman, accused the SBU of anti-Semitism. He presented as evidence the list prepared by the SBU of the collaborators of the NKVD-GPU (People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs, State Political Direction of the USSR) allegedly involved in the organization of the holodomor. In this list, he said, “there are people who could never have been” organizers “of the holodomor, from the heads of the transport and statistics departments to the representative of Crimea, which at that time was not part of the Ukraine. But the main thing is the careful selection of names, almost all Russians and Jews. On the other hand, in relation to the latter, they placed their real surnames in parentheses in cases in which their Jewish origin was not perceptible through the names they had adopted “.

    Aleksandr Naiman recalled that “at the time of the “Case of the Doctors” and the struggle against the “stateless cosmopolitans”, in some Soviet newspapers appeared similar decipherings of the surnames of the people under investigation. Stalin said then: “this smells of anti-Semitism”. Today the SBU not only smell, but are impregnated with that essence “.

    Covering crime tracks

    What is the reason for this concerted and systematic action to inculcate in the consciousness of the masses the idea of ​​holodomor-genocide? Political scientist Viktor Pirojenko noted that “the greatest human losses caused by hunger occurred in the population of eastern Ukraine, which is now oriented towards friendship with Russia. Therefore, this concept is used above all to discredit the common past between Russia and Ukraine and aims to associate Russia with the image of the enemy. “

    Besides that, the power tries to cover the clues of its own crimes against the people. In this sense, Professor Mikhail Rodionov pointed out that “the demographic losses of the present Ukraine far outweigh the mortality in the years of famine. The population of Ukraine decreased systematically. In some eastern regions of the country, the population decreased by 20%. We are in the presence of a policy aimed at the extermination of its own citizens. Seeking to postpone the moment in which, sooner or later, he will have to answer for the real and not mythical genocide, the system creates a smokescreen in the form of holodomor-genocide. “

    The excerpt I posted from Wikipedia reflects closely what I learned about Soviet collectivization and dekulakization as a college student back in the 1960s, long before there was any Wikipedia.

    As you know, Iosef Stalin was a murderous thug. He had liquidated many of his senior Red Army and Air Force commanders right on the eve on the German attack, and indeed even after the war had started. There was no shortage of Red Army generals, nor of Red Army reserves to feed into the breach.

    After the Germans attacked the Soviet Union, many of the ethnic German inhabitants of the Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic of the Volga Germans were banished to Siberia and Kazakhstan, and the Автономная Советская Социалистическая Республика Немцев Поволжья was abolished by 1941. According to the census of 1939, there were 366,685 ethnic Germans in the VGA SSR, along with appreciable numbers of 156,027 Russians and 58,248 Ukrainians.

    In general, it is always a bad idea — and an ad hom logical fallacy besides — to attack a source. Rather, counterarguments should be made against the specific point under discussion.

    It shouldn’t take much imagination to understand that peasants of all nationalities and/or ethnic backgrounds would resist giving up their possessions to the Soviet hacks sent down to the kolkhoz to run things. Commonly, these Red commissars and apparatchiks were urban Jews with little knowledge of agriculture, transportation, or anything else. The rapid, massive, and arbitrary change-over to state ownership was not without serious problems — Charlie Foxtrot — that overwhelmed the theoretical organization’s ability to function. Live and learn. Unfortunately, the resident peasants who were the experts had been separated from their own little patch of turf, but no worries, the commissars had a central plan.

    On 27 December 1929 Stalin officially announced the forthcoming ‘liquidation of the Kulaks as a Class’. Dekulakization consisted of the expropriation of the richer peasants’ households that were officially labeled ‘kulak’ and the expulsion of their members from the village.

    The decree on Dekulikization established three categories of kulaks. The first: ‘counterrevolutionary kulak activists’ were subject to incarceration or execution; their families were exiled. The second, ‘kulak activists’ were to be exiled to distant parts of the Soviet Union. The third, the majority, were to be resettled outside, but nearby, collective farms. Two million peasants of the first two categories were deported in 1930-1931.

    https://socialhistory.org/en/today/12-27/liquidation-kulaks

    About that same time, Stalin decreed that anti-semitism was punishable by death. Wonder why?

    In the U.S.S.R. anti-semitism is punishable with the utmost severity of the law as a phenomenon deeply hostile to the Soviet system. Under U.S.S.R. law active anti-semites are liable to the death penalty.

    Well, my warning about Wiki stands: many entries there are biased. The bias is not random, as you would expect from a supposedly “crowd-written” source: in every case the bias toes the line of the US State Department and Western MSM that serve the same puppet masters and parrot the lines promoted by the State Department (even though some journalists subsequently acknowledge that those lines were lies, like in recent case of BBC and alleged chemical attack in Syria).

    As to Stalin, I never said that he wasn’t a criminal. He was obsessed with power to the point of paranoia. I think that’s why he executed a lot of military commanders: he saw them as potential rivals. For the same reason Zhukov was demoted after WWII.

    As to “collectivization” and elimination of “kulaks”, the first was a huge blunder combined with a string of crimes, whereas the second was a crime of mass murder: presumed “kulaks” were eliminated not “as class”, but as living people. That is not disputed. What is disputed is the number of victims. This was grossly exaggerated by Western propaganda, probably to make the body count of communism look greater than an enormous body count of capitalism. Key point I was making is the same you are making: these crimes were not directed against a particular nationality, they were “equal opportunity”. Russians, who constituted more than half of the USSR population, suffered proportionately. Russian agriculture was devastated by those policies, which led to widespread hunger in the countryside in the USSR. The fact that Russia today is taking the same dominant position in grain exports that the Russian Empire had, whereas Soviet Union in 1970s-1980s was a huge importer of grains, speaks for itself.

    Finally, the issue of Jews. Stalin used the party and CheKa apparatus he inherited from Lenin, with numerous Jews in key positions. In fact, he later executed most of them (again, those executed party and CheKa functionaries were of various nationalities), which was one of very few good things he ever did (executing Bandera followers was another good thing we can ascribe to Stalin). Here again, we need to put things into proper perspective. Yes, Stalin was a mass murderer, but so were “democratic” Churchill and Roosevelt. So, when people from self-appointed “democracies” mount the high horse, it is either gullibility, or stupidity, or hypocrisy, or some combination of these three things.

    Well, my warning about Wiki stands: many entries there are biased. The bias is not random.

    One grows weary of hearing this foghorn. Bias is everywhere, not just in Wikipedia.

    In any event, here’s another source:

    The view of reality that the party maintained was that the mass of the peasantry were now in favour of collectivization, that they were fighting for it against the kulak, and that when it was introduced it would result in a great increase in agricultural production. The realities contradicted all these assumptions. In fact, the collectivization operation was supervised by activists from the cities (the “Twenty-Five Thousanders”) and OGPU men, and it was economically disastrous.

    In mid-1929 only about 5 million peasants had been on collective farms. On March 1, 1930, this had risen to more than 70 million. Peasant resistance took various forms, including a number of local insurrections, but its main component was the mass slaughter of farm animals to prevent their being taken by the kolkhoz. Official figures given in 1934 showed a loss of 26.6 million head of cattle (42.6 percent of the country’s total) and 63.4 million sheep (65.1 percent of the total), and this is probably an understatement of the facts.

    There are things on which everyone agrees, like times table.

    No doubt, the “collectivization” was a huge economic disaster. In fact, it took decades to restore the numbers of cattle, and it took de-collectivization to restore grain production.

    The goal of collectivization was not to increase production, but to simplify robbing peasants. That’s why Germans in Nazi-occupied parts of the USSR preserved “collective farms”.

    I strongly suspect that if Bolsheviks knew the extent of the damage to production their bone-headed collectivization did, they’d think of some other way of robbery.

    It does seem clear to me that AnonTN harbors an obvious and visceral antipathy for Ukrainians, both past, and present. And a curious sympathy for the Soviet Union.

    I suspect this colors his (yours Sir ; ) view of things like the Holodomor and the current hostilities between Ukraine and Russia, (which I more or less agree with him [you] about).

    The Holodomore (genocidal campaign to starve to death the best and most productive, able and yes, “industrious” white Christian farmers under the psychopathically genocidal (((Bolshevik regime))) ~ (because they were capable and hardy and strong and independent White Christians) – was very real indeed. Even Walter Duranty admitted as much, when he thought no one was paying attention.

Their sources are always political scientists, national archives, from the Soviet Union and other countries, and so on.

    My maternal grandfather, the late-Stephen Havrilko; came to America from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, settled in Newark, NJ.
    He taught me to fish at Tunkhannock Creek, and together on b&w TV, we watched Emile Griffith kill Benny “Kid” Paret in-the ring, and frequently, the hilarious (Jewish) “Three Stooges” whom my heavily Slavonic-accented grandpa called the “Stogers.” 🤗

    Suppose having such lineage would allow me to telephone/email Hungary and convey my appreciation for their telling predator UK Jews to mind their own iffen- business?

  353. Of course, Soviet authorities commited errors, some huge, who not?, but, without denying any of it pale in comparison with the benefits they brought, in quality and duration of human life, not only for the Soviet people but for the rest of the world, who, as of today, still continue enjoying some of the benefits that were conceeded only because the Soviets were giving them to their citizens, and which were grudgingly conceeded by the Western capitalists in order to avoid the at that time in the making enchained socialist revolutions throughout Europe and beyond.

    The fact that we have such life span now we must thank to no other than to the Soviets, since it is because of the regulations on labour shifts, spare time and labour life, health universal care, and universal promotion of sports that we reach today such old ages still healthy. But, already, we do not even arrive in such healthy conditions the Soviets were doing, since we have now added a stressful factor on perennial insecurity of all aspects of life coming out of the last years of neoliberal austerity measures trying to get rid of what remains of what one day was called the welfare state, which have not but Soviet origin.

    The great genocides of which nobody talks are all those result of the aplication of the shock doctrines of capitalism.

    Censorship, Suppression, And Subversion: The Real Purpose And Effect Of Unz Review Psy-Ops

    “It’s the free speech policy of Ron Unz to which Phil adheres. It’s pretty hard to get censored here, but recently Cloak & Dagger and I managed, lol.”

    Robin: I never realized before just what a fool thou really are, made manifest by above quote fm thou.

    It’s NOT NOT NOT NOT “free speech policy” of Unz, not in the slightest–thou totally mis-judges the real psychologic operation (“psy-ops”) Unz is running. MOST, probably at least 4 out of 5 of my entries are routinely CENSORED/deleted.

    Unz will occasionally publish one of my postings, for his own purposes, then if and when that posting gets responses fm the Jew-lovers and -defenders (who are legion, thou will notice), as on the recent Jonathan Cook column on “Liberal Elite…,” Unz CENSORS/deletes any of my rejoinders thereto–there were at least 5 or 6 on that page. Only thing I was allowed to do was to append a “disagree” notation after the scum Unz CENSORSHIP.

    Unz himself says he puts/applies “light hand of moderation”?–this is an absolute, deliberate, bald-faced lie by Unz, the typical Jew liar. For Unz CENSORS assiduously, scrupulously, intensively, ferociously (thou are sooooo utterly deceived and deluded, RobinG)–his purpose being to manage and manipulate the dialectic/discussion and pushing and applying his own “spin,” this “spin” ALWAYS Jew-friendly, Jew-serving.

    Observe Unz’s basic “gimmick” which is he publishes all the ostensive anti-Semitic journalism and articles/columns–ask thyself, could anyone else really do this without being immediately and heavily assaulted and vilified as by ADL and SPLC?–but Unz gets by EASILY, doesn’t he? And then look at what Unz does w. the comments pages for these articles, HEAVILY censored, the commentary overwhelmingly weighted in favor of Jews w. the usual platitudes to effect “not all Jews are monsters,” “we can’t judge all Jews by the ‘few’ bad ones,” etc.

    What a racket Unz has and now exploits!–practically monopolizing thus the “anti-Semitic” journalism–look around: does ANYONE else even come close to this publication and collection of the “anti-Semitic” journalism?–the only one would probably be Kevin Macdonald, a total PHONY, who legitimizes Israeli terror-state and BEGS to accommodate such terror-state in exchange for getting those Jew murderers and criminals to endorsing “white nationalists”–which has actually happened, in a way, in the form of Trump.

    So what do thou get fm “Unz Review”?–well, thou get the journalism and the articles, BUT then there are the TOTALLY censored and Jew-friendly, Jew-serving comments pages, where Unz concentrates his energies, as one sees, Unz operating fm relatively early in morn to late at night, these pages HEAVILY infested w. the typical Jew-friendly and outright Jew TROLLS as we see fm the earlier Giraldi article on “Being Marco Rubio.”

    Thou may think and imagine Unz allows anti-Jew comments, but these are always mere snide remarks and the usual throw-away platitudes, never fully-developed thoughts and essays about SERIOUS anti-Semitism, as I present, for example, Unz’s censorship ALWAYS aimed to practical effect that there are at least SOME “good” Jews (like Unz himself, ho ho ho ho), and one can’t judge them all by the few obnoxious ones.

    So the overall effect of Unz Review Journalism is the SUBVERSION of real, serious anti-Semitism–that’s the obvious bottom-line–no less than Macdonald’s moronic work and results, sucking-up to Israeli terror-state, Unz alternatively sucking-up to Jews and actually having their (Israeli) trolls coming on and pushing their lies, which Israel-partisanship Unz otherwise pretends to disapproving.

    For there is a real, genuine, serious case to be made for outright anti-Semitism–and this Unz will not allow to be exposited, always working to marginalize, discount, and even ridicule such substantial anti-semitic material–THIS IS UNZ’S REAL PURPOSE AND EFFECT, essence of his psy-ops, and thus thou sees his intensive, pervasive, and thoroughgoing CENSORSHIP and suppression, while pretending otherwise, deliberate and most purposeful, the foremost intention of his work and effort here, doubt not. And this deception by Unz works brilliantly, we see, RobinG, w. typical fools like thou.

    You are making a pretty common mistake of confusing Ukrainians and Ukies. Being half-Ukrainian, I have to defend Ukrainians, who are en mass good, tidy, hard-working people, about half of whom speak beautiful and melodious Ukrainian language, very colorful, with lots of excellent idioms (now, this I know first-hand, as I speak it myself).

    Ukies, on the other hand, are the scum of the Earth, typical examples being Bandera followers, volunteers of Waffen SS division Galichina, and other disgusting Hitler’s servants, like Shukhevych and the rest of UPA. Ukies are guilty of the Lvov pogrom in 1941 and Volhynia massacre in 1943-44, as well as other mass murders of civilians, including women and children, committed on the territories of present-day Ukraine, Belarus, and Slovakia. The pictures of their atrocities are all over the Internet (little children nailed to trees, pregnant women with their bellies cut open, etc.), as they didn’t even have enough human decency to be ashamed of their crimes, and/or wits enough not to take photographs of themselves in the middle of the crime scene. The fact that Zio-controlled US elites put Ukies in power in Ukraine in 2014 is the greatest crime against Ukrainians ever committed.

    The hunger in the whole Southern USSR in 1932-33 was real, and Soviet government of the time was guilty of not helping the people in all those areas (Kazakhstan, Volga region, Southern Russia, Ukraine). But allegedly anti-Ukrainian Holodomor is a myth promoted by Ukies and their puppet-masters.

    Specifically, the US political system is completely corrupt, politicians being largely frontmen for powerful moneyed interest groups.
    Bizarrely, people in the US – and in many other countries as well – seem to think that they can get real change by just electing the “right” person, without firstly reforming the corrupt political system.
    This is simply not possible.
    As others have noted upthread, you included i think, truly good cadres just don’t advance very far within such a system, or they are forced to make so many concessions to survive that they become compromised.
    Even such compromised politicians, perhaps a Tulsi or a Rand Paul, hardly ever get picked to run for the presidency.

    Hey Mike,

    Good questions. Points 1, 2 and 3 are all correct.

    4. If 3. is true, was the intentionally exacerbated starvation aimed at peasants (independent farmers/”kulaks”) in general, or at specific ethnic groups (Ukrainians or Germans)? I think this is where opinion diverges most.

    Here I think that there may have been a mix of both, to some degree. Some ethnic groups were viewed with greater distrust than others by the regime and suffered accordingly.
    The Chechens and the Kazakhs, for example, suffered terribly, perhaps when adjusting for population size, more than Ukrainians.
    Anyway, again I’ll quote from Russian historian, Oleg Khlevniuk:

    Repeated incidents of unrest flared up in both Ukraine and the North Caucasus in 1931–1932. A further cause for concern was Ukraine’s border with Poland. Stalin feared that Poland, in its hostility toward the USSR, could exploit the Ukrainian crisis.40 Overall, as Hiroaki Kuromiya points out, Stalin was suspicious of all peasants, but “Ukrainian peasants were doubly suspect both for being peasants and for being Ukrainian.”41

    Emboldened by the sauce, they make wild inflammatory comments complete with “profound” goofy bar-room one liners, and think they’re smart. Also, this particular one even claimed “first hand” knowledge of the situation, which he was forced to admit was a lie, probably when he sobered up a bit and realized how foolish his claim was.

    Like a typical drunk bully, he gets aggressive, mouths off, preaches, then blames the intended victim for doing what he initiates. If he had a wife he’d probably blame her for his troubles, then try to beat her and the kids, but outweighing him by a factor of 3 or 4, one cuff upside the head from her, and he’d STFU til next time.

    Particularly telling is the fact that he avoided many of my questions such as what he thought about the 6 million.(He’d just finished some simple-minded, preachy, diatribe of “wisdom” about lies and exaggerations or something.)

    Is it just possible that some of the antics of these ‘Ukies’ are in response to hostilities going back to WWII and before, as with the Holodomor, where no doubt some of them lost family members?

    How many grandfathers of these Ukies were Keelhauled at Yalta? For fighting the Soviet fiend that had cruelly murdered their relatives?

    Then when you discover that there are people who downplay the Holodomor, (and their motivations for doing so), should it come as any surprise that some of these Ukrainians become militant?

    As I’ve said repeatedly, I’m no fan of the Ukies, (wannabe Nazis who take their orders from Jewish supremacist oligarchs and grovel to the depraved west to be invited into NATO). They are deluded imbeciles at best, to be honest. But the best way to disarm them and shame them is not to feed into their legitimate grievances, by dismissing the Holodomor as a trifle. The Holodomor was all too real, and a widow into the putrescent soul of the Soviet, Bolshevik, Jewish supremacist Fiend. From Bela Kun, to Lazar Kaganovich, this fiend drenched Eastern Europe and Russia in rivers of Gentile blood, misery and unimaginable suffering. All of which- they are hectored today by modern day Jewish supremacists (and others ) to downplay as unimportant compared to the ‘suffering’ of their tormentors.

    For your undeserved information I studied classical flute, for four years in conservatory, with an excellent “Abschluss”, went through Bach, Mozart, Debussey, etc.

    It’s all about melody and Jazz does not fall short in relation to classical in the area of : Melody, however one must be able to descern the quality of melodic invention, which you are obviously unable to do, in order to appreciate Jazz.

    My Mother, a born Italian noble lady, loved jazz, and Italy is in fact the seat of the best jazz played outside of the US to this day. It was no coincidence that Chet Baker lived there for decades. I, by the way, played in a band with a drummer who had toured Europe with Chet .

    my father fought Hitler,…

    . So, I don’t want to be at peace with Nazis or wonna be Nazis, period. .

    The ‘troubles’ in Ukraine are a complicated witches’ brew of acrimony and grievance and loss.

    Russians were (and sometimes are) perhaps the most conflicted. Russians fought Russians during the Revolution and also during WWII.

    This is the thing for me. I often look at today’s world to make sense of yesterday’s conflicts.

    If a Russian Revolution type of civil war were to happen today in the ZUSA, it’d likely be a consortium of ‘diversity’ led by Jewish supremacists against the Deplorables. (like the Reds vs. the White Russians). If victorious, they’d order that all guns be confiscated, and new laws would suddenly appear. Like Bolshevik Russia, ‘anti-Semitism’ would become a capital crime punishable by death. Deplorables would be dealt with harshly, as they were at Ruby Ridge and Waco. Only on a massive, Kulak-type of scale. There’d be no dearth of diversity volunteers for death squad to carry out the grim orders, and I certainly wouldn’t put mass-starvations past them.

    So all the things that happened in Russia, I could easily see happening here, with the same principle motivating agents. Jewish supremacists in charge, and throngs of diversity, full of hatred for ‘racist white Americans’, would be all too eager to ‘put it to’ the racists, but good!

    Katyn forests all over the North American continent.

    In such an America, on whose side would I fight?

    And if such a government ever came to be, with perhaps Tom Steyer as potus, and Corry Booker as vice, and Eric Holder brushed off and installed again as AG, with men like Levoy Finnicum being gunned down all across the nation, as the new Red ZUS government consolidated its absolute power…

    if someone like me were to sign on with the resistance, and fight against such a government, then how is that any different than the thousands of Cossacks and Russian and Ukrainians and Poles and Estonians and so many others that didn’t fight for Nazi Germany, but rather fought against the Soviet Fiend that had ‘grabbed Russia as if by the hair of the head’, and was turning Russia and beyond onto a giant terrorized ‘killing field’ for any White Russians or others it considered too ‘industrious’?

    All the things that happened to Russia, I could easily imagine happening here, with all the same motivating players. The Jewish supremacists. The hatred consumed ne’er-do-wells. The orc-like goons in it for rapine and rape. They’d all be extremely well-represented today in the ZUS just as they were in Russia.

    So my sympathies are colored by looking at the world I see today, and extrapolating certain truths as to what likely happened in history. (since obviously all we’re told is basically lies)

    I’m not saying there weren’t good and decent Russians who fought Germans, there were of course. Just as there were good and decent Ukrainians who fought on both sides, depending on what kinds of treatment they’d gotten from the Soviets vs. the Nazis.

    What a terrible vice to be put in. Genocidal, Jewish supremacist Soviet goons on one side, and arrogant Nazis on the other. Whose uniform do you don?

    But that could conceivably happen here, with the same sort of people aligning in the same sort of ways.

    Not to mention that their main grievance is that Hitler lost WWII

    I doubt that. I don’t suspect that the Banderites or Ukros love German Nazis. What I suspect is that they agreed with the Nazis that the Soviet Fiend had to be crushed, and lament that it wasn’t.

    But at the end of the day, I suspect that the Banderites (and Ukros and Baltic nationalists, etc..) would like to have a country of their own, with pride in their respective histories and honoring their grandfathers who fought (regardless on which side), in that horrible, zio-contrived mass-fratricide.

  377. @Rurik

    Let me just say a few things.

    One, a lot of former White commanders who emigrated to various European countries flatly refused to serve Nazi Germany, some stating point-blank that they won’t fight against their own country. That test clearly separated people from scum.

    Two, back in Soviet times I was for letting Baltics go and have their own countries. They seemed civilized, brushed their teeth and used anti-perspirant. Now I see that appearances are deceptive: many people in the Baltic states actually demonstrate primeval tribal Hutu-Tutsi-stile mentality. Latvia and Estonia even introduced apartheid, with citizens and non-citizens having vastly different rights. “Democratic” Europe keeps mum about that.

    Three, among those Baltic states only Lithuania has history to speak of, the other two were first created after the 1917 revolution in the Russian Empire. All their cities were built by Germans, and populated by Germans, Poles, and Jews.

    Four, the bulk of Lithuania, including its present-day capital Vilnius, was part of Poland before WWII.
    Five, Ukraine was (and still is) extremely heterogenous, culturally and linguistically. It consists of distinct Galicia-Volhynia area (where practically all Waffen SS volunteers came from), Trans-Carpathian area, Slobozhanschina (Kharkov region), and pretty heterogenous Novorossia (parts captured by the Russian Empire from the Ottoman Empire) from Odessa to Donbass. Western Ukraine was a part of Poland before WWII (Poles still call it Kresy Wschodnie, i.e.,
    Eastern Kresy or Little Poland). Under Polish rule Ukrainians were not even allowed to live in Lvov. Poles called them bydlo (literal translation – cattle). I am not even talking about Crimea, which never was Ukrainian and never will be. It was transferred to Ukraine by Khruschev (without Sevastopol, which remained under direct Moscow rule) in 1954 in violation of even loose Soviet rules of that time. Literary Ukrainian is the language of Poltava region, there are several quite different significantly Polonized or Germanized dialects in the West. Fewer than half of Ukraine residents even speak any version of Ukrainian, practically none in Donbass (I went to school in Lugansk; Ukrainian language and literature were obligatory subjects in the Ukrainian SSR; Ukrainian teacher loved me because I was the only kid in a class of 40+ who could speak proper Ukrainian). In Trans-Carpathian region there are a lot of Romanians, Hungarians, and Rusines, whose languages and cultures are today suppressed by the Ukies. Ukraine joined to Russia by Khmelnitsky constituted about a sixth of its present-day territory. So, who is entitled to have his own country, and how many countries should there be on that territory?

    Finally, here in the US we already live under the domination of those multi-culti, open borders, Zionist-worshipping globohomos, so your scenario is a bit behind the times.

    “If a Russian Revolution type of civil war were to happen today in the ZUSA, it’d likely be a consortium of ‘diversity’ led by Jewish supremacists against the Deplorables.”

    This comparison is not correct, because the assumption that the Russian revolution was a conspiracy mostly controlled by Jewish masterminds is itself incorrect.

    The Russian revolution, like the French revolution before it, came about because the feudalistic political system in place, albeit benevolent in many ways, was not able to evolve quickly enough to meet the socio-economic needs of the poorer part of the population.
    Of course, free-masons and other Talmud-inspired opportunists jumped on the Revolution bandwagon: they always do, they are parasites by nature. But the Russian/French revolutions remains nonetheless genuine mass movement inspired by the need for change.

    In Russia, BOTH the Reds and the Whites were deeply patriotic, both fought for their country during WW1. The same applies to France, where both aristocrats and plebeians united against any external foes in defence of their motherland. (To the day, the French army counts a high rate of officers born to traditional catholic nobility).

    The USA is the complete contrary: it is ruled by an ethnic group which first loyalty fiercely and entirely goes to a foreign country. Further more, they use the American people as vile (in their view) cannon fodder to relentlessly serve the geopolitical objectives of this foreign power.

    So, very respectfully, don’t fool yourself: the USA is nowhere as well loved and served as Russia was in 1917. With sincere regards.

    Complete balderdash!

    Lenin and Trotsky were financed by Jews in New York and London, like Jacob Schiff:

    In the February 3, 1949 issue of the New York Journal American Schiff’s grandson, John, was quoted by columnist Cholly Knickerbocker as saying that his grandfather had given about $20 million for the triumph of Communism in Russia.

    Earlier in the century, Schiff had arranged loans for the Japanese to buy a powerful naval fleet built mostly in British shipyards that allowed the Japanese to prevail over the Russians in 1905. Schiff was awarded with glorious fruit salad from the Emperor in recognition of his service to the Japanese. Now the plot thickens:

    During the two years of hostilities thousands of Russian soldiers and sailors were taken as prisoners. Sources outside of Russia, which were hostile to the Tsarist regime, paid for the printing of Marxist propaganda and had it delivered to the prison camps. Russian-speaking revolutionaries were trained in New York and sent to distribute the pamphlets among the prisoners and to indoctrinate them into rebellion against their own government. When the war was ended, these officers and enlisted men returned home to become virtual seeds of treason against the Tsar. They were to play a major role a few years later in creating mutiny among the military during the Communist takeover of Russia.

    True and for the reasons you stated so well.

    It was engineered and financed by primarily Western financial interests with a hatred for the Tsar.

    Hatred for the czar because they couldn’t control him, in a manner similar to what the US is doing in Venezuela today. It was an early example of regime change, and besides, Russia was a real prize having vast natural resources again similar to the Venezuela experience.

    What Iris (bless her heart) seems not to understand is that there were popular complaints for sure, but the revolution was as you say. In fact, Bolshevism had a lot of popular appeal even (especially?) in the US and many were seduced by it until they belatedly discovered that the movement was really all about advancing the interests of the usual international banksters.

    Then why did they emigrate?

    What was wrong with just staying put, and defending their “own country”?!

    by your metric, America’s most revered Generals and patriots, George Washington and Robert E. Lee… were scum. Because once their “own countries’ had been co-opted by tyrants and fiends, they donned the uniform of war, and said ‘if you want my freedom, come and take it’.

    Unlike the Russian ‘White commanders’ who crept out the back door to safety, Generals Washington and Lee were perfectly willing and eager to slaughter any and all who would presume to enslave them under tyranny. (regretfully, Lee had to resign himself to losing to the tyrants, but such is life). At least he was willing to fight. Just imagine what his legacy would be if he’d had run off to Canada or Mexico to escape the hostilities.

    War makes strange bedfellows. Andrew Jackson courted pirates and savages in his campaign against the Bank of England. When your lands and country and family are being menaced by a fiend, you either hold your nose, and fight with unsavory allies, or you run and hide.

    Baltic states actually demonstrate primeval tribal Hutu-Tutsi-stile mentality. Latvia and Estonia even introduced apartheid, with citizens and non-citizens having vastly different rights

    Ahh..

    But you conveniently ignore how the Soviets imported gobs of ethnic Russians into the Baltics so as to sow strife and division – the calling cards of the Fiend.

    Is it any wonder today that there is anger and resentment over the conflicting languages and cultures and narratives?

    Let’s try to keep this honest, eh?

    the other two were first created after the 1917 revolution in the Russian Empire. All their cities were built by Germans, and populated by Germans, Poles, and Jews.

    you sound like a Zionist, dismissing the proud history of places like Estonia, whose sagas go back to the Viking days, and who don’t need Russians to tell them how to have a culture, thankyouverymuch. Not.

    So, who is entitled to have his own country, and how many countries should there be on that territory?

    Let the locals decide.

    My solution to the problems that rack the Ukraine, is to see it fractioned, with the Russian ethnics in the East aligning with Russia, and the Ukrainians in the West, aligning with globohomo, since they seem so eager to wallow in rap “music” and Hollywood sewage.

    Finally, here in the US we already live under the domination of those multi-culti, open borders, Zionist-worshipping globohomos, so your scenario is a bit behind the times.

    Whereas it’s sadly true that Czar Nickolas was not up to the challenges, it’s also true that Bolshevism (whatever the assorted duped Russian peasants naively believed – “worker’s paradise” hokum) – was a Jewish supremacist genocidal campaign of terror and rapine.

    It (Bolshevism) was funded straight out of ((NYC’s dank banking houses)), freshly invigorated with the keys to the US Treasury. Woodrow Wilson himself facilitated Trotsky’s trek from N. America to Russia- in order to impose ((Trotsky’s)) vision for vengeance on the Russian people.

    So it’s exactly like today in the ZUSA. A near perfect expression of the nascent days of Soviet horrors in Russia. With Jewish supremacist$ at the helm, controlling all the money and acting as the intellectual vanguard of genocide and slavery.

    White commanders emigrated because otherwise they would be executed by the Reds who won the Civil war. But their refusal to fight side-by-side with foreign invaders against their own country showed that they were patriots, even though they disagreed with the forces that came on top in their country at that time.

    You can’t be serious about Washington or Lee. Washington defended his country (13 North American colonies) from a former colonial power (Britain), whereas Lee defended his country (Southern Confederation) from the North. Neither ever served foreign invaders of their countries, in contrast to the scum like Krasnov, who served a foreign country (Germany) in war against his country (Russia). If you want an analogy (although all analogies have serious faults, as two historic events are virtually never similar in all aspects), both Washington and Lee can be compared to Donbass freedom fighters, as they also opposed external invaders of their homeland.

    Baltic states acquired a great part of their Russian residents because Stalin added Russian-settled territories to them. Yes, he wanted to have the fifth column in every republic in the USSR, but net result after the breakup of the USSR was that their territories ended up being greater than they should have been. Besides, apartheid is apartheid, whatever “justifications” for it one can come up with. It is only possible when a significant fraction of the oppressing nation has primitive tribal mentality.
    You can’t be serious about Estonia if you know at least some of the Viking history. Vikings were Norse people hailing from parts of present-day Sweden and Norway. No Finnish tribe (Finns and Estonians alike) had anything to do with Vikings, except for being conquered by them (partially, like some areas in today’s Russia, Britain, France, etc.)

    Locals in Donbass are doing exactly what you suggest: fighting off external invaders to decide their future for themselves. Hungarians in parts of Trans-Carpathian region are doing the same thing, so far avoiding direct military clash with Ukies.

    As to guns in private hands in the US, it is a ruse designed to fool people into believing they have power. In fact, gun owners use them against ordinary people, never against the oppressing libtards and globohomos. Did you ever consider why this is so?

    Krasnov, who served a foreign country (Germany) in war against his country (Russia).

    Hi did not fight against Russia.

    He fought against the Russian people’s most murderous enemy; the Soviet fiend.

    If a tyrant comes to power and tries to enslave your people, killing the tyrant and his goons is not the same as going to war against your country or your people. Just the opposite in fact.

    If I were a young Polish lad, whose father and uncles were butchered at the edge of a ditch at Katyn, by Soviet fiends and their goons, and had to make a choice between aligning with the German army that had just liberated my town, or aligning with the fiends who had murdered my family, I suspect that I’d chose the Nazis over the fiends.

    Not because as a Pole, I liked Nazis or even Germans. Hardly. But because I simply didn’t have a choice. It was either fight with the Germans, or run and cower in a closet and cry to mommy.

    Better to fight and kill, even if it meant just killing one of the murderous orcs responsible for killing my father.

    that their territories ended up being greater than they should have been.

    I really don’t quite get the hatred Russian have for their neighbors. It is the Russians in Estonia, who you admit, are there as a “fifth column” (enemy inside the gates). Is it any wonder there is hostility?

    I respectfully disagree with Art and Phil Giraldi. Tulsi Gabbard is a Pied Piper. How many war Presidents in the past have campaigned as non-interventionists and have caused millions of deaths due to their obligations to the psychotic elite?

    I cannot stress enough how extremely dangerous the CFR entity is. Gabbard has been a member for several years and is definitely aware of its influence. The “Council” fulfills Mussolini’s definition of Fascism (a.k.a. Corporatism). It is the hub in the merger of state and corporate power.

    For example, Genie Energy Ltd. has a huge interest in the Golan Heights. The following members are on its Board of Directors: William Perry, Dick Cheney, Michael Steinhardt, Larry Summers, Bill Richardson, James Woolsey, and Keith (Rupert) Murdoch. The other common interest they have is they are all members of the Council on Foreign Relations. Another member on Genie’s BOD is….Nathan Rothschild.

    Does one honestly believe that Gabbard will stand against either Genie Energy or any of the financial and media giants, that have corporate officers in the CFR and have promoted war for their collective global interests?

    Let’s not forget that Gabbard has a friend in Sheldon Adelson the one individual with huge political influence on Trump and who wants to literally nuke Iran. Will Tulsi stand against the wishes of Adelson and Netanyahu’s Chabad mob?

    There’s much more than “Assad’s reputation” at stake. Is she decrying war from one side of her mouth and enabling a mentality for R2P regime change from the other? (Don’t forget how notable anti-imperialism thought leaders demonized Gaddafi prior to Western intervention and destruction of Libya, effectively paralyzing dissent.)

    “Truth” is also at stake. Tulsi blaming Maduro for Venezuelan economic difficulty ignores years of US imposed sanctions and oil market manipulation. Do we need an informed electorate to have a democracy, or not? Her condemnation of Assad came within a week after a BBC producer admitted proof that the Douma “chemical attack” was staged.

    Previously, this same Riam Dalati had attacked anyone who questioned the Douma incident, even though journalists including Robert Fisk, Vanessa Beeley, and Pearson Sharp had been on the scene and found no evidence of any chemical attack.

    That false allegation resulted in US airstrikes on Syria, so this is NOT the moment for Tulsi to flip-flop her narrative. Only a couple of weeks ago she told MSNBC that there is no evidence that Assad used chemical weapons. Why switch from skepticism to certainly, when the evidence is moving in the other direction?

    Also concerning is her enthusiastic support of Israel. The whole Syria gambit is part of the plan for a greater Israel. GENIE ENERGY is a bipartisan rape of Syrian resources.

    I’ve been promoting Tulsi and her bill, No Arming Terrorists, for years. Her choice of language was appalling.

    Didn’t late President Gaddafi accept to pay “reparations” for the Lockerbie and UTA bombings, a crime for which he was completely innocent, so the sanctions on Libya would be lifted?

    Whether the insane Zionists are intent to demonise President Assad is frankly a completely obsolete issue: they have already destroyed Syria anyway.

    Mrs Gabbard is publicly pointing the figure at the core issue: there is no moral or political justification to imperial wars, none but Israel’s and its associates’ secret domination agenda. It takes a lot of courage to open this Pandora box.

    ” Don’t be fooled, Tulsi Gabbard is no friend to the left”

    You are the one who is being fooled, as you do not comprehend that as a Democrat she will, at the end of the day, support the Democratic party line and it’s insane politics, period.

    It does not ever matter what a Democrat says if they appear to be contradicting the official party line, as in the end they ALWAYS back the party and it’s socialistic/communistic stance.

    The Democrat party is the party of such lunatics a Mad Maxine, and the guy who warned about tipping over Guam by moving US troops there, there is no hope for those irrational freaks.

    Correction: Maxine isn’t mad, she is just dumb as a brick. Her advanced age dashes any hope that she is gonna become any smarter.

    It would have been nice if only the Democratic party was full of lunatics bought and paid for by the MIC. The problem is that the Republican party is just as full of the same kind of trash (Bolton, Pompeo, if you need examples). In fact, there is only one Republicratic party fully controlled by the Deep State. Dem vs Rep “struggle” is a ruse for the credulous and feeble-minded, a fight of two puppets on the two hands of the same puppet-master.

    Bullshit

    There are most definitely corrupt grifters amongst the Republicans, however the Democrats are the world champions in every area of unethical action.

    I read a reliable study years ago comparing numerically the scandals of Democrats to the scandals of the Republicans and the Democrats led nine to one.

    And splitting hairs as to whether Mad max is crazy or just stupid is futile as someone as abberated she is should never be elected to any public office, however the bonker Democrats do not give a shit, as long as she brings in votes to the party.

    I agree with that 100%. Maxine is clinically stupid and pathetically ignorant, she does not know the difference between Korea and Crimea, which even congressional crowd not known for its smarts knows.

    I disagree about Reps being any better than Dems, though, in terms of both smarts and honesty. If Reps were any smarter, they would have never nominated halfwit Bush Jr, who is at the same level as Maxine, or Sarah Palin, who can compete with Maxine not only in stupidity, but also in ignorance. As to honesty, how come Bush’s and Trump’s tax cuts brought ~90% benefits to the richest 1% and maybe 10% to the rest of us? How come Reps along with Dems always enthusiastically approve obscene “defense” budgets, a well-known feeding trough for the most corrupt MIC profiteers?

    Self-described Rep and Dem politicians are equally dishonest, venal, and generally disgusting. No wonder Clinton, Bush Jr, and Obama all committed numerous war crimes and enriched themselves to about the same extent.

    Indeed. Talking of geography, Bush Jr is the one who famously confused, in public, Austria with Australia (and APEC with OPEC):

    Okay and your hero BO stated in a campaign speach that he had been to all 57 US states, and while in Austria he said that he doesn’t speak : Austrian

    “she argued against inserting a ‘human rights’ clause in the US India agreement…..even after Modi directed attacks on Muslims in India. She said keeping good relations with India was more important. I don’t call that very principled. I would like to hear her explain that.”

    Adding a human rights clause to the US India agreement, just before the Indian elections, was nothing but a ploy to influence the outcomes of a foreign election. Tulsi was right to oppose it.

    Hindus and Muslims have a long-standing history of conflict, and clashes between them have been occurring long before Modi. The claim that he “directed attacks on Muslims” is completely false, and he has been exonerated by the Indian Supreme Court of any such claims.

  424. Tulsi Gabbard was born in American Samoa. Her family moved to Hawaii when Tulsi was two years old.

    Tulsi is top shelf. Nothing points more to the meretriciousness of the media Establishment that they would favor a corrupt ho’ like Kamala Harris over a real American heroine Tulsi Gabbard.

  427. @Jacob Sabat

    BDS is not even favored by the Palestinians. It’s not all it’s cracked up to be. My friend Norman Finkelstein has called it a “cult”. The fact that Tulsi voted against it is not a true indicator of what she would do for Palestine if elected. It was a calculated decision on her part. She’s still the real deal.
