Folks in the West are taught that their civilization has its roots in ancient Rome and/or ancient Greece. This is more a case of self-aggrandizement than serious historical research. While it is true that the city of Rome was sacked in 410 AD, the Christian Roman civilization continued in the East for another 1000 years until 1453. The real roots of what we nowadays call the western civilization are to be traced back to the following time periods:

  1. Most ancient (theoretical) roots: the early Frankish Merovingian Kingdom (481–751) and Carolingian empire (751–843).
  2. Formative roots: the so-called “Holy Roman Empire” (800-1806) which was “Roman” only in name (this term appeared only in the XIIIth century; in French it is called more accurately “Saint-Empire romain germanique” but it really ought to be called the “Germanic Empire”, since it was neither “Roman” nor “Holy”).
  3. Modern (ideological) roots: Renaissance, French Revolution, WWI, WWII, Cold War.

But in practical terms, we can say that the western civilization emerged from the Middle-Ages (5th-15th centuries) or, even better, from the times of the Crusades (1095-1410). Far from being the heir to the Roman Empire, the AngloZionist Empire is a direct descendant from the Franks and the civilization they built in the West on the ruins of the Christian Roman Empire. When Muslims nowadays speak of “Western Crusaders” they are absolutely spot on. The only difference between the original Crusaders and their modern descendants is that the former at least pretended to be Christians. The latter wear their crass materialism as a badge of honor.

The true birth of the Western Civilization
The true birth of the Western Civilization

This civilization can be characterized by tremendous intellectual, technological and scientific achievement, arguably the most beautiful music ever composed (especially J.S. Bach) and many other artistic and architectural masterworks. Alas, it also has a darker side: imperialism, racism, genocide, slavery, religious and political persecutions and, of course, two world wars. So that record is checkered, to put it mildly, but it cannot be denied that in spite of its sins and flaws, western civilization also brought the world an immense intellectual legacy which inspired people worldwide. If you ask most western people what they associate with the western civilization they would probably name things like the scientific method, democracy, human rights, civil rights, the separation of powers, equality before the law, etc. People from other civilizations might view the western civilization in a very different way, but we can ignore that for our purposes. But what the so-called “collective West” (aka the AngloZionist Empire) is showing today is the exact opposite of what the West is supposed to stand for. Here are just a few examples:

  1. International law: with the US/NATO aggression against the Serbian nation, a major feature of western civilization died: international law. What began then with bombs on Serbian civilians in the Serbian Krajina and Bosnia continues today with the absolutely disgraceful “alignment” of the key western power and the diktat of the Anglosphere, be it on the Skripal false flag, the many chemical false flags in Syria or, most recently, the AngloZionist coup against the legitimate government of Venezuela. The truth is that nobody gives a damn about international law in the AngloZionist Empire’s ruling class and that nowadays “might makes right”.
  2. Human rights: the sad and outrageous truth is that the West is currently backing a (completely illegal) Nazi regime in the Ukraine, a Takfiri regime in the KSA and a Zionist (and openly racist regime) in occupied Palestine. All these regimes are mass violators of human rights and basic norms of civilized behavior. Needless to say, the US does violate a huge number of international norms and conventions in human rights, labor rights, due process, civil rights, etc. And we all know that the infamous Patriot Act was written even before the 9/11 false flag operation.
  3. Law of War and Geneva Conventions: same here, the US is gleefully ignoring many of the most sacred provisions of the laws of war and the Geneva Conventions either by not ratifying parts of these instruments or by finding ways to circumvent them (think Gitmo, Abu Ghraib, Bagram or even the many “black” CIA prisons located in various countries world-wide; think “extraordinary rendition” too, of course). Likewise, the US totally and unconditionally support the Uber-violator of all imaginable legal obligations: Israel
  4. Due process, especially evidentiary rules, have become a farce. Anybody doubting that should look up the following names: “Sami al-Arian”, “Sibel Edmonds”, “Victor Bout”, “Anwar al-Awlaki” or even “Julian Assange”. While nominally independent from the other branches of government, it appears that at least the main US courts are fully controlled by the Neocons and their Deep State.
  5. Respect for the political process: it is absolutely clear that the Clinton Gang never accepted the election of Trump as POTUS and by rejecting this outcome, or by trying to label Trump as a “Russian agent”, the AngloZionist leaders will never accept their defeat. Hillary’s famous “basket of deplorables” comment is a perfect illustration of the immense contempt in which the AngloZionists hold the regular people of the US.
  6. Open, competitive, markets. It is pretty clear that the US has no use for open, competitive, markets and that the leaders of the Empire will use any and all methods to avoid an honest competition with the other countries, hence all the endless lists of sanctions, of threats against countries which might dare purchase non-US systems (the entire S-400 vs F-35 issue with Turkey is a perfect example). When we look at western countries, especially the US, we see what some call “crony capitalism” with absolutely fantastic levels of corruption, huge mega-corporations in control of entire segments of the economy, exports imposed by sanctions and threat of sanctions rather than competitive advantages, feudal labor laws, a ruthless imperialist/colonial policy of systematically robbing those who dare to live above resources the Empire needs or wants.
  7. Respect for alliances and partnerships. The AngloZionist Empire has no allies – only vassal states, puppet regimes and comprador 5th columnists. The US has always treated its so-called “allies” with utter contempt, but until Trump this contempt was hidden behind a thin veneer of diplomatic language. With Trump, even that is long gone.

The list goes on and on, really.

The last emperor is also naked…
The last emperor is also naked…

On January 18th of last year I wrote an article entitled “The good news about the Trump Presidency: stupid can be good!” in which I tried to show that by his illiterate actions, Donald Trump was maybe not making “America” (should be the “US” but never mind that megalomania) great, but he sure was weakening the AngloZionist Empire. But this is much bigger than just one narcissistic person, What we are witnessing today is the agony of a civilization which has outlived itself and now that the Empire is in its dying throes I want to mention another good thing Trump did: he became the emperor who himself shouts “the king isn’t wearing anything at all!!” (in the original story, a child does that, but in this case, we have a “fused” “child-emperor” who does that himself).

What are the “clothes” which I am referring to? Primarily what I would call the “Cold War cloak of imperial benevolence”.

Remember the Cold War?

There was the “Evil Empire” whose Commie-Red agents were about to take over the planet and stick everybody in a labor camp versus the (collective) “West”, which embodied the ideas of freedom, democracy, human rights, equality before the law, fairness, objectivity, economic prosperity, impartiality, tolerance, pluralism, etc. etc. etc.

Then, when Clinton became President and the Neocons finally openly and brazenly seized power, a good friend of mine spoke of a “grand coming out” which would be impossible to reverse. He was right. Not only are the Neocons now in total control of the Empire, but they have completely given up on any pretense of respectability. I am not only referring to Gitmo and torture, or the obscene and unconditional support for the last openly racist country on the planet (aka “the only democracy in the Middle-East”) or, for that matter, a long string of completely illegal wars ranging from the wars against the Serbian nation in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo. Neither am I referring to the growing list of treaties, agreements and even organizations which the US has abrogated, denounced or withdrawn from. In fact, I am not even referring to the US alone, but also to the so-called “friends and allies” of the Empire which can be described as “the collective West” or, maybe less charitable, the US colonies overseas.

No more ‘human face’ for capitalism!
No more ‘human face’ for capitalism!

When the Neocons finally came out and showed their true face, they did more than just affect the image of the US abroad, they also gave a signal to their colonial administrators that all pretense of decency could now be dropped. Force, brute force, was now the order of the day. This is why Theresa May could spew out the most ridiculous and self-evidently stupid lies about the Skripals (or about Syria, for that matter) or Macron could ban RT from the Élysée and nobody would peep. This is also why Poroshenko can safely declare that the Russian armed forces have invaded the Donbass or the EU can declare that the Russians are culprits in the recent Kerch bridge incident.

The Cold War forced the masters of the Empire to show a kind of “capitalism with a human face”. That Cold War is over now, and there is no need to pretend anymore.

Will the almighty US join the USSR on the trash-heaps of history?

Many Russians living in the West (such as Dmitri Orlov) have noted the numerous similarities between the late Soviet Union (especially the so-called “stagnation years”) and the modern US . I myself made such a list of similarities as far back as 2014 when I listed the following:

  1. A bloated military budget resulting in an ineffective military
  2. A huge and ineffective intelligence community
  3. A crumbling public infrastructure
  4. A world record in the per-capita ratio of incarcerated people (US GULag)
  5. A propaganda machine which nobody trusts any more
  6. An internal dissident movement which the regime tries to keep silent
  7. A systematic use of violence against the citizens
  8. An increase in tensions between Federal and local authorities
  9. An industry whose main exports are weapons and energy
  10. A population fearful of being spied on by the internal security services
  11. A systematic assimilation of dissent with espionage and terrorism
  12. An all-prevailing paranoia about internal and external enemies
  13. A financially catastrophic over-reach of the empire across the planet
  14. An awareness that the entire planet hates you
  15. A subservient press-corps of presstitutes who never dare to ask the real questions
  16. A sky-high rate of substance abuse
  17. A young generation which believes in nothing at all
  18. An educational system in free-fall, (the Soviet one was much better, btw) inbred and White racist redneck
  19. A disgust with politics by the general public
  20. A massive and prevailing amount of corruption on all levels of power
ORDER IT NOW

But even more crucial to the eventual fate of the USSR, I would argue, is the immense chasm between what the official ideology proclaims and what the ruling elites actually really do. Speaking about the Ukraine, I wrote in 2014 that ” what the AngloZionists are openly and publicly defending in the Ukraine, is the polar opposite of what they are supposed to stand for. That is an extremely dangerous thing to do for any regime and the AngloZionist Empire is no exception to that rule. Empire often crumbles when their own people become disillusioned and disgusted with the massive discrepancy between what the ruling elites say and what they do and as a result, it is not so much that the Empire is faced with formidable enemies as it is the fact that nobody is willing to stand up – never mind die – in defense of it.”.

The immense, mind-blowing, obscene hypocrisy of the Empire is not only revealed in its actions in the international arena or by the fact that the Empire does not shy away from allying itself with Zionists, Nazis, Takfiris and any other morally repugnant gang of thugs (see in Kosovo, for example) as long as these thugs are willing to act as the cannon fodder of the Empire. The exact same mentality permeates every political action of the Neocons in internal politics too.

The only acceptable outcome for the Clinton Gang
The only acceptable outcome for the Clinton Gang

The Democratic Party especially, reached a new moral and ethical low when it invited Michael Cohen to testify before Congress even though the man is a convicted felon and liar and every word he would speak would be in total violation of the fundamental right of Donald Trump to keep his communications with his lawyer protected by the client-attorney relationship. What is absolutely amazing is that it is Congress which is violating the civil rights of a standing US President, and yet very few observers seem to be outraged by such actions.

This outrage was just the latest in a long series of actions by Congress which show that Congress considers Donald Trump as a traitor and a thug and we can rest assured that the Democrats won’t stop until Trump is jailed. The fact that he is the person chosen by the people of the US to be their president does not seem to matter at all to the lynch-mob in Congress.

Again, what is so striking here is not only how the US elites are turning against each other (which is a sure symptom of a deep crisis), but also the fact that the open persecution of Trump by Congress and the Ziomedia does not even try to come up with some semi-credible explanation or semblance of respectability. What we see is a lynch-mob which is determined to hang the man they have designated as the ultimate evil.

As for Mr MAGA himself, he is now busy calling Ann Coulter a “wacky nut job” to which she responded by calling Trump an “idiot” and that having him as a President is a “national emergency” (Rex Tillerson would agree with her on that!).

Nobody can predict how this struggle between the Neocons and the Clinton Gang on one hand and Trump on the other will play out, but my personal guess is that Trump is a disposable President: the Neocons will use him to do all the crazy shit they typically are known for, and when the inevitable disaster strikes, they will blame him, him alone, while hiding their own role in what took place. This way Trump first gets to play shabbos-goy for the Neocons for a while, until they decide destroy him like Haman or Amalek (the fates of Saddam Hussein or Muammar Gaddafi immediately come to mind). Mr MAGA himself clearly was never told that tob shebe goyyim harog.

A dictatorship of minorities next?

What began with the Crusaders will end with this…
What began with the Crusaders will end with this…

We are often told that in a real democracy minorities should be protected against abuse from the majority and, to some degree, this is true. However, the primary function of any kind of real people-power is to protect the majority, the masses, from the abuse they typically suffer at the hand of various (and often federated) minorities. Whether the Founding Fathers intended this or not, the sad reality today is that the US political system is structured in a way to primarily benefit minorities, financial or otherwise. Hence the 1% meme popularized by Occupy Wall Street. The following are some of the characteristics of the most typical minorities found in the US (and elsewhere):

  1. They are typically far more aware of their minority identity/status than the majority. That is to say that if the majority is of skin color A and the minority of skin color B, this minority will be much more acutely aware of its skin color.
  2. They are typically much more driven and active then the majority. This is probably due to their more acute perception of being a minority. Minorities themselves present their social success as a sign of intelligence, of course, even though in reality this is the direct result of a drive which representatives of the majority typically don’t exhibit.
  3. They are only concerned with single-issue politics, that single-issue being, of course, their own minority status.
  4. Since minorities are often unhappy with their minority-status, they are also often resentful of the majority.
  5. Since minorities are mostly preoccupied by their minority-status linked issues, they rarely pay attention to the ‘bigger picture’ and that, in turn, means that the political agenda of the minorities typically does not threaten the powers that be.
  6. Minorities often have a deep-seated inferiority complex towards the putatively more successful majority.
  7. Minorities often seek to identify other minorities with which they can ally themselves against the majority.
Trump Derangement Syndrome
Trump Derangement Syndrome

The reason why the Neocons and their Deep State love to support all types of minorities is very plain and simple: minorities and their (hyper narrow) political agenda represent absolutely no threat whatsoever to the real, hidden, powers which run the Empire. Furthermore, minorities are extremely easy to manipulate. Thus these various minorities represent the ideal power base for a party like the Democratic Party which can then use its control over minority (identity) politics in its struggle against the Republican Party.

Furthermore, if you look at that list of characteristics above, you will immediately recognize the kind of nutcases suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome which seems to chronically overcome Trump-haters.

What makes this situation particularly dangerous is that the Clinton propaganda machine (through the testimony of Mr Cohen) is now suggesting that Trump might not be willing to accept a defeat in the next elections. I submit that the there is much bigger chance of seeing Trump win again and the Clinton gang trying to play a “Guaido” trick on Trump. The screaming creature in this photo does not strike me as willing to accept that anybody but her own preferred candidate would occupy the White House.

Don’t get me wrong – screaming lesbians are funny, especially when they wear these pink “vagina hats”, but there is also a much more ominous aspect to their antics. They are all based on a categorical rejection of the outcome of the electoral process and, which is even worse, a rejection of the “other”, in this case the “deplorable” who dared to vote his/her conscience and not simply obey the instructions of the Ziomedia.

The truth is that the level of ideological intolerance among the opponents of Trump is much, much, higher than among Trump supporters. It is therefore only logical to assume that the potential for violence is much higher among the Trump-haters than it would be elsewhere. Right now all these folks are content with screaming, protesting and drinking every drop of Cool-Aid the Idiot Box delivers to them on a daily basis. But once in power, this “coalition of minorities” will ruin the US even faster than Trump did and whatever regime (as opposed to government or Administration) they put in power, will be a far cry from the worldwide Empire the US attempted to build after WWII.

Conclusion: Quos Deus vult perdere prius dementat

The true face of western “democracy”
The true face of western “democracy”

What is taking place before our eyes is an amazing sight to behold: an Empire which is collapsing both internally and externally at an accelerating pace and the worse the Empire’s objective situation becomes, the more delusional and out of touch the Neocons and their Deep State appear to be.

Irrespective of all its flaws, mistakes and sins, it is sad to see how a civilization which gave the world the likes of Newton or Bach now rots away while being led by a gang of evil, arrogant, clowns. There have been plenty of villains in the history of Europe, but never such a gang of clueless and yet fantastically arrogant rulers. Just look at Trump, Macron or May – these are non-entities which pale in comparison to such leaders as Reagan, Mitterrand or even Margaret Thatcher (hardly a hero of mine, but the lady was smart, no doubt about that).

Now, with the likes of Pompeo in charge we can only pray that the losers running this dying Empire will not trigger a nuclear holocaust, whether by design or by sheer stupidity.

    The sad thing is that Europe is collapsing first and that means that the US dollar will rise a lot – because wealthy Europeans will not be moving their money to China, Japan or the UK. They have little choice but the US dollar.

    This rise in the US dollar will be used by the Neocons to “prove” how successful the US is and how much more money the US government can buy. Military expenditure and adventures will be underwritten by this rise in the US dollar.

    Obviously, this will not continue indefinitely, but a lot of damage will be done before they stop being able to borrow money.

    The monopolized health care system should be included in this, and I’m not sure monopoly is the right word. Captive government structured corporatized wholistically indentured market of people’s health and well being, at a cost that could easily include all a persons earthly treasures including his own dwelling. How’s that for anti-family.

  3. Thankyou Saker, this is a great article. You make a diamond clear & diamond hard case for the ongoing degeneration of “the West”.
    I was especially pleased you mentioned the Cohen/ Trump attorney/client relationship. Non lawyers may not realize just how fundamental to the functioning of a Common Law system this relationship is. It is absolutely mind boggling how this privileged relationship has been so openly, so blithely, so grossly treated with contempt & disdain by the media & (good god almighty !) the actual federal Legislature. Why ? T-D-S, ie the political viciousness & grotesque, blind stupidity of a losing political party.
    You have some lovely turns of phrase, too. The “agony” of an Empire that has “out lived itself”.
    One quibble: I would place far more emphasis on the influence of classical Greece & Rome on Western Civilisation. Latin & Greek , as languages in themselves & as literature (philosophy, drama etc) plus their Arts, history, religion, law etc etc have had profound affects on ALL aspects of Western life, ideology, values & imagination. A modern reinterpretation & return to classical values might slow our decent into collective insanity & degeneracy.

    You might not have to wait that long. Israel looks like they’re getting ready to officially announce their role as the New World Power. But we know they have been operating in that capacity for a long time now. They just didn’t let the Americans know in a formal manner. I think they are just waiting until after their new elections. While the US investigates Trump and Russia for Collusion, the real case that proves real Collusion is being ignored by both Dems and Reps, both equally disgusting politicians. The Temple Plans are ready, the red calf, and peace with the Palestinians is almost done, thanks to Kurchnir or as the media calls him: The Prince….Americans forget what happened 2 years ago…check out the article, it might wake you people up, before you find yourselves in FEMA camps.

    As a Baby Boomer, I was raised on a diet of the Nuremberg Trials and the laws of war embedded in the Geneva Conventions. The First Principle was that aggressive wars are criminal and the people who start them are war criminals. The First Principle outlawed aggressive war and “first strikes” … and it did not allow for mental gymnastics about “existential threats”. If the moral principles and legal precedents embedded in the Nuremberg Trials are still relevant, then most of the leadership of the United States and the EU since the end of Cold War I are war criminals, i.e. Desert Storm II, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Venezuela, etc.

    In truth, the Nuremberg Trials and Geneva Conventions have been flushed down the memory hole. The AngloZionist Empire sees “existential threats” everywhere it looks and acts accordingly. “Might makes right” is its new credo. In reality, the Empire is in its death throes. It is behaving like someone suffering from debilitating paranoia, seizures, and imperial dementia … seeing death at the door while clueless to do anything about it.

    A side effect of the death throes of the Empire is the de facto resurrection of the reputations and deeds of the likes of Hitler (and the Nazis) and Stalin (and the Communists). Fair is fair. These “devils” were only doing what has become de rigueur today: identifying “existential threats” and smashing them with “first strikes” … without even paying lip service to International Law.

    The AngloZionist Empire has replaced the rule of law in international affairs with the Law of the Jungle. The end is nigh!

  6. “When Muslims nowadays speak of “Western Crusaders” they are absolutely spot on.”

    Just as long as we are clear that the original Crusades were a response to muslim conquest of Christian lands. Funny how the regional history seems to start at the Crusades with some peoples.

    “The truth is that nobody gives a damn about international law in the AngloZionist Empire’s ruling class and that nowadays ‘might makes right’.”

    Not entirely true: They use the veneer of sanctions in a vain effort to provoke regime change rather than first resorting to the kinetic warfare they almost always end up using when sanctions fail. BTW, sanctions that operate on a country’s general populace are themselves Crimes Against Humanity very much in line with the standards invoked for Nürnberg.

    “That is to say that if the majority is of skin color A and the minority of skin color B, this minority will be much more acutely aware of its skin color.”

    Which is why 13% of the US population makes sure it makes enough noise to get 50% of the roles in entertainment and are therefore perceived by the majority as if they are 30% of the general population.

    “But once in power, this “coalition of minorities” will ruin the US even faster than Trump did ….”

    There is a non-trivial probability that Trump will leave the US a smoking, radiating ruin. One of my European colleagues asked who might follow Trump as President, and I just smiled and said Trump is the last American President. I was joking of course, but Trump may very well be the last duly elected POTUS, as the USA enters its own Crisis of the Third Century.

    “… we can only pray that the losers running this dying Empire will not trigger a nuclear holocaust, whether by design or by sheer stupidity.”

    My money is that it will be by design. These nutjobs think they can win a nuclear war.

    “As for Mr MAGA himself, he is now busy calling Ann Coulter a “wacky nut job” ….”

    I seem to recall that that salvo included a statement that he was winning: Trump was clearly channeling his inner Charlie Sheen, and one can only wonder how long before we start seeing Tweets about Tiger Blood.

  7. A ‘dying empire’ can be far more dangerous than a nascent one. The pattern of history is clear – nations rise and fall. In the process of falling they grasp on to power at any cost. Often, fatalistically, they launch the very war they seek to prevent. This applies as much in the nuclear age as any other time in history. To avoid defeat a nuclear state will use its nuclear weapons: the fall-back position of Deterrence doctrine – annihilation. Pray I am wrong, but the forces bringing to Armageddon are blind to the lessons of history, putting their hold on power before the world’s survival.

    The United States’ providential mission- which transcended the parochial and often self-serving intentions of the Founders- was to serve as a great tellurocratic power which would provide a home to Europeans of Christian descent fleeing the internecine quarrels and economic stagnation of the mother continent. That mission was traduced by the authors of the Spanish-American War , degraded almost beyond repair by the imbecilic and blackmailed Woodrow Wilson, and put to rest by FDR and his gaggle of warmongering communists and Anglophiles.

    The official US Empire was instituted with the creation of the National Security State in 1947. “America” never had an authentic vocation or culture outside of its Christian European ancestry. In embracing Zionist imperialism and the artificial Jew counter-culture (Neocons, cultural Marxists, Afrocentric beat music, etc.) it has become nothing more than an Anglo-Zionist wrecking ball and enabler of Antichrist.

    Trump failed precisely because he is (and always was) a creature of the Anglo-Zionist media counterculture., and as such, had no transcendent or metaphysical Christian worldview.

  10. We are often told that in a real democracy minorities should be protected against abuse from the majority

    A real democracy can only function in an homogeneous society. Lee Kuan Yew observed that in multiracial societies, people vote according to the best interests of their racial or religious group rather than the good of society as a whole. He also said, ‘multiculturalism will destroy America’ and asked, ‘do you make the Hispanics Anglo-Saxons in culture or do they make you more Latin American in culture?’

    Whether the Founding Fathers intended this or not

    The Founding Fathers intended the US to be homogeneous. Jefferson wrote that ‘foreigners’ would ‘share with us the legislation…and render it a heterogeneous, incoherent, distracted mass.’

    “An educational system in free-fall, (the Soviet one was much better, btw) inbred and White racist redneck”.

    The foreign-born Saker has missed this one entirely. He did not grow up in the US, and he evidently does not comprehend what has transpired since the Eisenhower AG-directed 82nd Airborne-enforced Little Rock High School integration of 1955 and the ‘Civil Rights Act of 1964’. The US public educational system is the exact opposite of his assertion. The US system is a post-industrial, Affirmative Action-dominated, Negro-centric educational system with institutionalized lowered standards, that has been teaching anti-white propaganda and egalitarian historical revisionism to multiple tens of millions of young white children. His bigoted ‘white redneck’ assertion ( which was not in his 2014 essay ) is elitist and out-of-touch.

    Alas, it also has a darker side: imperialism, racism, genocide, slavery, religious and political persecutions and, of course, two world wars.

    Hardly different from rest of humanity.

    By the way, race + ism should be defined as belief in reality of race and racial differences. ISM means belief, after all. Using ‘racism’ to mean ‘mindless or groundless racial hatred of supremacism’ is to fall into the trap of the enemy. Everyone is race-ist, explicitly or implicitly, because it’s impossible not to notice racial differences.

    But what the so-called “collective West” (aka the AngloZionist Empire) is showing today is the exact opposite of what the West is supposed to stand for. Here are just a few examples

    When has the West, or any civilization, ever practiced what it preached?
    I will grant that the hypocrisy is louder than ever under globo-homo Zionist control, but it’s a matter of degree than substance.

    International law: with the US/NATO aggression against the Serbian nation, a major feature of western civilization died: international law.

    True to an extent. Serbia was targeted because it was the strongest state in Yugoslavia and because it was closest to Russia. Also, Jewish power, by coming to the ‘rescue’ of Muslim Albanians, wanted to propagandize itself as ‘pro-Muslim’ so as to prepare for wars against Muslim nations. Nice shtick: “Gee, how can WE AMERICANS be anti-Muslim when WE bailed out the Albanian Muslims?” Of course, Jews were being rank hypocrites. Jewish logic says the West had to help Jews take back the Holy Land BUT Serbians had no right to take back their ancient homeland from Albanians who’d come invading under Ottoman rule.

    That said, US/NATO intervention in Serbia was a mixed bag. For most of the 90s, NATO had done little or nothing to stop the slaughter, just like the UN did nothing to stop the Rwandan genocide. There was a sense that SOMETHING had to be done to end the bloodshed and cycles of violence.
    In retrospect, it was handled badly, but INTERNATIONAL LAW means that nations around the world must work together to stop excessive mayhem in a part of the world. In a more perfect world with a better superpower than the US, maybe something good have come of it. But the US had no credibility as it had used sanctions to kill 100,000s of kids in Iraq.

    Law of War and Geneva Conventions: same here, the US is gleefully ignoring many of the most sacred provisions of the laws of war and the Geneva Conventions

    What of massive civilian bombings in WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, and etc. US support of right-wing death squads during the Cold War. 100,000s, possibly millions, slaughtered in Latin America.
    It was always like this. Soviets backed their own bloody regimes in Asia and Latin America. Chinese backed the loathsome Khmer Rouge. The world didn’t suddenly suck just now. It was always a mess.

    Respect for alliances and partnerships. The AngloZionist Empire has no allies – only vassal states, puppet regimes and comprador 5th columnists.

    One of the benefits of being an empire. Puppets are more reliable than allies. Allies can break off he alliance. Puppets always do as told. In that sense, we can’t blame the US for preferring puppets to allies. Better off owning a trained dog than partnering with a lone wolf with a streak of independence.

    When the Neocons finally came out and showed their true face, they did more than just affect the image of the US abroad, they also gave a signal to their colonial administrators that all pretense of decency could now be dropped.

    Jewish tribal supremacist takeover of US empire has been most unfortunate. Though both the US and USSR got their hands dirty and bloody in the Cold War(and supported murderous proxies), there really was a clash of big ideas and visions relevant to much, even the majority, of humanity. It was a world conflict for world-ideas. Big power engaged in big action for big isms.

    But, we now have the US as lone hegemon using its immense power and influence to serve the narrow interests of a single tribe(allied mainly with homo supremacists). There is so much tensions around the world to indulge the Jews, a tiny percentage of world population, and homos(the cherry-picked allies of Jews): Jewish King and Homo Queen. Since Jews know that it’s too much to ask all the world to risk WWIII, IV, V, and etc. for Jewish interests, they couch their chosen conflicts in terms of ‘human rights’ and ‘spreading democracy’ and etc, but it rings so hollow. Or Jews try to spin the conflicts as holy crusades to spread homomania, which actually goes over well with many people in the West for whom queertianity is their new missionary-fairy faith.

    Many Russians living in the West (such as Dmitri Orlov) have noted the numerous similarities between the late Soviet Union (especially the so-called “stagnation years”) and the modern US . I myself made such a list of similarities as far back as 2014 when I listed the following:

    A bloated military budget resulting in an ineffective military

    I dunno. US seems to be pretty effective in smashing nations. Just ask the Libyans, Iraqis, and Syrians. Maybe US sucks at nation-building, but it is an expert at nation-wrecking.

    A huge and ineffective intelligence community

    Ineffective? It seems very effective. US was able to mess up computer systems in Iran. It has hidden devices in computers all over the world. Also, Intelligence works closely with Jews and Israel, which means all the political dirt are known to Jews who can blackmail anyone.

    A crumbling public infrastructure

    Depends on where you look. Certain big cities are richer than ever. And even now, most roads in the US are better than roads in Russia or China.

    A world record in the per-capita ratio of incarcerated people (US GULag)

    Blacks. Evolution made them meaner and tougher. Have blacks, will have lots of inmates.

    A propaganda machine which nobody trusts any more

    I wish this were so, but plenty of morons trust every word of snakes like Rachel Maddow and S.E. Cupp. And all that anti-Russia hate news must have worked because the great majority of Americans now hate and fear Russia more than ever.

    An internal dissident movement which the regime tries to keep silent

    True of any society.

    An industry whose main exports are weapons and energy

    Isn’t that Russia NOW? In contrast, the US is also a huge exporter of high-tech, medicine, media, entertainment, chemicals, foods, and etc.

    A population fearful of being spied on by the internal security services

    Sadly, most Americans have learned to stopped worrying and love the spying. There was some fuss from progs about the Patriot Act during the Bush II presidency, but when Edward Snowden spilled the beans, the entire elite and proggy class denounced him. Conservatism Inc, the arm of the war state, didn’t defend him either. It took mavericks like Glenn Greenwald and Oliver Stone to come to his defense. Progs claim to stand for ideology, but ‘idology'(idolatry as replacement for ideology) is bigger among them. One of their main ‘idological’ obsessions is the Magic Negro. As Obama was a Magic Negro, progs just venerated him as a ‘historic president’ and turned a blind eye to all his warmongering. Progs are more ‘Catholicist’ than ‘Protestantist’. They are more dazzled by ‘idolic’ symbols and spectacles than true to the letter of progressive ideology.

    A financially catastrophic over-reach of the empire across the planet

    US is financially over-stretched, but I don’t think its overseas empire is the main problem. It’s bankers privatizing profits and socializing losses, and it’s the masses hooked to entitlements.

    An awareness that the entire planet hates you

    Nothing new here, but there was always love/hate between US and the world. After all, the world still wants to come to the US and become Americans. Few Americans want to move to Russia, but plenty of Russians want to come to US and become Americans. Even Muslims whose nations have been blown up by the US want to come to US and become Americans into rap and burgers.

    A young generation which believes in nothing at all

    That wouldn’t be so bad. It would at least mean that young people are skeptical. But in fact, too many young people truly and really really believe in globo-homo, Afromania, and Jew-Worship, or the Holy Three. Young people worship MLK, Diversity, Inclusion, ‘gay’ rainbow, and etc.
    In this, they are different from latter-day Soviet youth who really were jaded and felt that they were being lied to about the richer and more advanced West.
    In a way, the sheer superficiality of current Western ideology and ‘idology’ makes them more effective. One problem with Marxism-Leninism was that it just seemed boring, dull, worn, same-old-same-old, and tiresome as the years went by… like someone reading Church dogma for the umpteenth time. In contrast, even as current Western ideology and ‘idology’ are pretty idiotic, they are always changing color and shedding (snake) skin according to fads and fashion. The conceit of novelty, newness, and ‘change’ keeps young idiots excited and thrilled: ‘gay pride’, ‘slut pride’, BLM, Pussy March, MeToo, tranny-mania, Green New Deal, climate change, ‘migrants welcome’, ‘microaggressions’, etc. It’s 31 flavors ideology/idology. In contrast, Soviets had only one flavor: Red. Most young people are idiots and care more for pizzazz than meaning. As idiotic as the current Western ideology/idology is, it knows how to hook people to a ‘vibrant’ sense of ‘celebration’ and ‘happening’. The Revolution has been Advertised. This is why so many youths are indeed ‘passionate'(or childishly excited) about whatever flavor they’re obsessed with at the Moment.

    An educational system in free-fall, (the Soviet one was much better, btw)

    Many schools are a mess because of blacks and maybe some browns. And of course, lower-income whites do poorly. But US education is pretty solid for Jews, Asians, and white middle class. If we compare US whites with whites in Europe and Russia, they usually come off better.

    A massive and prevailing amount of corruption on all levels of power

    This is problematic, mainly due to blacks and Latin Americans/Muslims/Asians who bring their norms to the US. Also, diversity increases distrust.

    Anyway… one big difference between US and old USSR is this: The MAIN reason why USSR collapsed was not due to all those problems listed above. It was because its elites got tired of managing the system and taking care of the ‘lazy’ masses. They wanted to end communism and become super-rich oligarchs. And THAT is why the system collapsed. It was blown up from the top.
    In the US, the top elites are super-rich oligarchs. Why would they collapse the system when they already have it so good? During the days of USSR, the Soviet elites envied the capitalist elites of the West who were richer, freer, and had more stuff. The only way they could have it all was by ending communism, which was destroyed from the top than from the bottom.

    The elites have it better than ever in the West. Why would they do anything to end the system? Trump made noise about draining the swamp, but it looks like he’s been totally co-opted by now. Trump is Scump, saying nasty shit about Queen Ann(Coulter).
    Also, as problematic as diversity is, it is actually to the advantage of the elites(esp minority Jewish elites) because diversity makes it impossible for the various racial/ethnic folks to unite to challenge elite power. Also, as at least 50% of whites are totally for diversity & homomania and see ‘white supremacy’ as the biggest threat, they work with Diversity and globo-homo elites to suppress any effective white mass challenge to elite power.

    One thing for sure, consumer capitalism fosters feminism, female careerism, self-centered consumerism, and deracination that lead to Nascence-cide or Nascencide.

    If some regimes wiped out populations in the fields, materialist-consumerist capitalism destroyed populations within the womb or genitals. Orgasm over organism. Even abort babies up to 9 months for more orgasm-over-organism. Hooking up, promiscuity, and adultery all with aid of contraceptives to prevent births while prolonging orgasms. Use of porn and now even sexbots as replacement for sex and life.

    Capitalist East Asia is most far gone, but whites in Europe and US face the problem too.

    Nascencide isn’t seen a mass murder or a great crime against humanity like genocide is because the life is killed before birth or not created at all in so many wombs that never produce life. But it spells doom for a culture and civilization.

  22. This all predicted by me 4 decades ago. Pluto in Capricorn destroys the nation state if it is diseased. Saturn now comes along to conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn rules Capricorn and it is the powers that be. They come along to confront Pluto which gave them enough rope early in this transit and is now chasing them down. Who is going down is the deep state, and America with it as we near the Pluto return to natal US Pluto of 1776. What replaces it? Well we are at the end of an age, so the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at 0* Aquarius will birth a king. Pluto enters Aquarius right after that. Nothing of the old world survives this shift.

Pluto gave the Jews immense power early on and enough rope when he entered Capricorn 2009 (Obama) and began exposing them as Pluto hit mid Pisces (2015-2016)
    Now we are in the chasing down period and total destruction.
    The only time in history I can find near but not as intense is 47 AD when Paul traveled to Damascus to spread Christianity and the age of the Ram ended. Jews still blow the Rams horn facing the horizon denying the age of Pisces and Christ.

    Don’t know where this comes from, but Norman Cantor agrees.

    The Mediterranean world, with its successor civilizations to ancient Rome, became aware of the new European consciousness, wealth, and power in the First Crusade of 1095-99. Then aristocratic chain-mailed, mounted French Crusaders leading peasant rabble in their crimson wake, fired by the subtle and seductive preaching of a wily monastic pope, burst upon the quiet hilltop cities of the Rhine Valley.

    Western Civilization owes more to Carthage than Rome or Greece. The Kingdom of the Vandals with Carthage as it’s capital was comprised of Germanic/Scandinavian people. Mecklenburg, Germany was originally called Vandalia. There was a proposed 14th colony comprising parts of West Virginia and Ohio named in honor of King George III’s wife, Charlotte of Mecklenberg-Strelitz who was descended from the Vandals. That’s why seven states have a town named “Vandalia.”
    In his 1766 book, “The history of Vandalia. Containing the ancient and present state of the country of Mecklenburg,” Thomas Nugent writes, “Strange revolution of affairs , that German nations should march from the borders of the Baltic to Africa, to revenge the cause of ancient Carthage, and to divide the treasures of the capital (Rome) among the inhabitants of a conquered province.”

    680 right up to 1880 in the Balkans Muslims were raiding looting and enslaving Europeans
    The Algerian slave raiders and pirates didn’t stop until 1830 when France conquered Algeria and put a stop to the slave raidingand piracy

    Saker’s total and absolute ignorance and babbling nonsense about Muslim vs European Christian relations since 680 AD leads me to believe that he is as ignorant about everything else as he is about Muslim Christian European relations over the centuries.

    We need bigger and better prisons. They need to be incarcerated as soon as they commit the first felony after their 18th birthday for the rest of their lives to keep them from breeding and to keep the rest of us safe from their crime noise and rude behavior.

  63. Let’s see, I’m an ethnic minority in India (my ethnicity makes up 8% of the population) and a religious minority (never mind that I’m atheist) in my state of domicile. So according to this article I should be a single issue voter who would blindly back any politician claiming to speak for my rights. Yet that’s exactly the voting model that no longer works at all, even with a largely undereducated and fragmented electorate as in India. Therefore I am compelled to conclude that the argument that minorities are mindless supporters of single issue political positions is bovine ordure.

    At the same time, the mindless zombies of the latte swilling middle class are the same across ethnic divides, and can be relied on to support the “cool” position of the moment, something that the Clinton gang recognised in their attempt to appeal to the mobile phone addicted new voters (“It’s cool to have a woman president”). But this is also exactly the set that does not bother to vote, because clicktivism that gets likes on Fakebook is so much more emotionally satisfying than voting. And they can also be very easily diverted into non issues if the owners of the media so desire.

    I will give you the example of Donald Trump. What I always notice about Amerikastani liberal criticism of Trump is how utterly inconsequential it is. They spend all their time on irrelevancies (like Trump’s obnoxious personality, his notional “wall”, and his compulsive Twitterrohoea) or fairy tales (like his alleged “collusion” with Russia) while ignoring his real war crimes and his provable collusion with the zionazi pseudostate in Occupied Palestine. It reminds me of when Barack Hussein Obama, Supreme War Criminal and Nobel Peace Prize “winner”, was bombing seven countries every three minutes for eight years and bailing out corrupt corporations that had crashed his economy – and all his alleged opponents could find to cavil about was his so-called Kenyan birth.

    It’s more than obvious that all this “opposition” is carefully stage managed theatre, designed to divert opposition into harmless channels, while tacitly allowing, indeed approving, actual and unhidden crimes. And just as Barack Hussein Obama got eight years in the White House, so will Donald Trump. Wait and see – he’ll be presented with an unelectable, unlikeable excuse for an opponent even he can beat with his eyes shut. Trump, after all, has kept the military industrial complex and the Zionist entity happy. That is all he needed to do.

    All the rest is theatre to keep the mindless masses happy. Nothing more.

  65. @SeekerofthePresence

    You’re mostly right. I’m saying “mostly” because the American Empire exists for the enrichment of Wall Street, not for the greater glory of the king. Wall Street knows that a nuclear war that turns its bank accounts to irradiated ash is not conducive to making profits – but anything short of it is. In fact the *closer* you can get to said nuclear war without actually starting one, the greater the profits. So it will push for aggressive brinkmanship, but if faced with actual annihilation, back down. And again this is exactly why Putin’s earlier soft approach only invited more aggression from the Empire and its vassals while his recent tougher stance has met with more circumspection, at least from the vassals.

    On the other hand Wall Street’s thoughts only extend as far as the next quarterly balance sheet. As long as that shows enough profit to pay a handsome bonus, the world can get destroyed two days afterwards for all it cares.

    2. According to your hypothesis, blacks in Amerikastan are racially unmixed, because if they were the gene admixture would reduce their “meanness” and “toughness”. Please provide genetic data to support this.

It contained more lies in first 3 sentences than some 300-page books have in their entire text ffs. To start with author keeps calling to Roman Imperium “Christian Roman Empire,” which per se is not just an outright lie and a proof of elemental ignorance, but a grand misnomer too (although not on par with the the name charade known as Holy “Roman” Empire luckily; that’s the only credit author can claim). Constantine allowed open existence of Christianity in the Roman Imperium in 325 AD, after the Council of Nicaea, submitting Christian religion to the Imperium. Cult of Jesus and the Christian god Jesus Christ was allowed to exist alongside the old gods. Constantine didn’t set Christianity as “official religion,” as many of you would like to claim, Constantine wasn’t even Christian and neither was any Roman imperator ever: from the first imperator Julius Ceasar to the last Tiberius II Constantine who died in 582 AD. Heraclius of the Armenian flock who ruled from 610 AD changed lingua of the Eastern Imperium from Latin to Greek and thus ended Roman culture and civilization in the Eastern Imperium (but that itself preceded Illyrian and Thracian separation from the Eastern Imperium, for Illyrians and Thracians were the carriers of Roman culture and speakers of Latin as lingua mater: all of the Asian Minor spoke Greek as well as Greeks themselves did, but if Greco speakers had been banned from the Roman city then the city would have stayed Roman and historical events would have gone different paths and altogether in different directions). Anyhow, your insinuation that Roman Imperium was Christian and European is a blend of elemental ignorance mixed with sheer stupidity compounded by the propaganda value you are emitting. Rome was Mediterranean civilization and culture. It united all of us Mediterraneans. It was never European. Barbaric central Europeans invaded and destroyed Rome. That is obviously not something which is learned in schools today, they teach offspring of those who destroyed Rome and its civilization, our Mediterranean realm that somehow “their roots are in our Mediterranean civilization and realm.” Talking about grandiose stupidity, degeneracy and Down syndrome sufferers’ level of imbecility. I don’t think you could teach this level of retardation to 40-60 IQ level people. That’s how stupid it is. But propagandists have never seen any problem with spreading their “massage,” they are true believers in the power of lie, that somehow it can change the reality as if by definition it’s not something used to deceive the mind. Moronic is too light a word to describe state of mind of the propagandists.

    The Mediterranean world, with its successor civilizations to ancient Rome, became aware of the new European consciousness, wealth, and power in the First Crusade of 1095-99. Then aristocratic chain-mailed, mounted French Crusaders leading peasant rabble in their crimson wake, fired by the subtle and seductive preaching of a wily monastic pope, burst upon the quiet hilltop cities of the Rhine Valley.

    a) Rhine Valley? The Rhine flows into the Mediterranean?

    b) The terminology is so heavily loaded with affect that it’s dripping. This isn’t history, its propaganda.

    No. There is no ” ideological intolerance” .

    The truth is that both sides share the exact same ideology – statism; that is a fanatical belief in the ability of governments to “improve” things via ever -more laws, ever bigger government and by stealing [and/or counterfeiting] even more money.

    The observed “intolerance” is merely a fight over who gets to enjoy some of the stolen, fake money to be dished out by the crooks known as “government”. The military? Israel? The wall builders? Big pharma? Retirees? The unemployed? The sick? The poor? The environmentalists? The abortionists? The children? The “educators”? And so on and so forth.

    Its all scam, an illusion of choice – a false dichotomy. Trumps national socialism, or “the other sides”?

    Fact: Both criminal “sides” want to steal even more money from people. to fund their scams.

    Both “sides” want a bigger , more centralized gang of crooks running everything.

    Both “sides” want more laws which completely ignore the Bill of Rights.

    Both “sides” want more foreign wars, plus wars on Americans.

    Both “sides” want the Fed crooks to “keep on keeping on” with their daily creation of new fake money.

    This just in: “Because they are all ultimately funded via both direct and indirect theft [taxes], and counterfeiting [central bank monopolies], all governments are essentially, at their very cores, 100% corrupt criminal scams which cannot be “reformed”,”improved”, nor “limited” in scope, simply because of their innate criminal nature.”

    Serbian Krajina? Krajina is to Croatians what Kosovo is to Serbs. The only reason the Serbs were there was because they were running from the Ottoman Turks and never left. It was at no point Serbian territory and that attempted land grab was costly for everyone involved.

    The war started with something Americans are very familiar with. States within the Yugoslav Federation wanting to secede and go their own way. The Serb dominated central government first trying to prevent that then when it became clear that wasn’t happening the Serbs just went for a land grab. Pretty much everything after they gave up on keeping Slovenia in the federation was just a landgrab since Croatia had just as much right to secede.

    Something to consider for Americans is that the population of the old Yugoslavia was relatively homogeneous compared to the US today. The ethnic national groups while distinct were pretty much all Slavs and culturally similar and still a weakening of central control when Tito died led to the split up of the country into more ethnically pure states.. How will America fare with a weakening central government? The federal government for now can keep the states together but should it weaken enough that several states want to secede then the war in Yugoslavia will look pretty tame in comparison. The diversity that is “our strength” fantasy will meet reality and it won’t be pretty.

    I see some speak of our plight. Let’s take our realm for example. Masons rightfully and justly started with revival and rebirth of our historical Illyrian homeland in the 2nd half of the 19th century. But somehow by 1918 our Illyrian lingua and homeland were discarded in favor of southern Slavic “homeland” (them invaders’ “homeland” on our land and people, imagine that!) and Serbo-Croatian (aka Sarmatian-Slavic lingua), because Serbois living in Serbia would not have their name missing and neither would Slavic kajkavians from Pannonia.

    [MORE]

    We Dalmatians, Illyrians had to give in, just like we had to allow central European trash to have their name onto our land and people. Indeed, in all this time since the fall of Rome (except for time spent under Venetian rule, since Venetians never tried to colonize just to preserve our cultural ways and people, which would have been assaulted no doubt should central euro or Turskih invaders came as occupation force) we were the party which has been giving in, while other were exploiting our generous nature. No more! Even in yugovina (Yugoslavia) central European kajkavian Slavs were made to host every industry except shipbuilding: from nuclear to food industry everything was methodically stationed in kajkavian lands of Slovenia and Croatia (there is no Croatia south of borders between Lika and Kordun
    – that would cca be a line crossed roughly separating the Kordun county in half — which is the very border Octavian designated to separate Mediterranean Illyrian Dalmatia from European Pannonia in 34th year BC. Regarding author’s noise about Serboi land and people in Croatia, there was very few Serbois ever in Croatia in western Pannonia. Serbois were spreading themselves on Illyrian land the same as Slavic Carpathian plague known as Craotians were. In Dalmatia we have no need for Serbois. If Serbois want to accept Illyrian ways and become Illyrians, sure, we can arrange that: should they submit we’ll accept them. That includes cultural colonization by us, them returning to Illyrian ways. In any other scenario, I suggest Russkies give back Sarmatian land they took over and colonized as it belongs to Serbois. Why should Russkies have so much land taken from all those people they occupied and colonized? Are they really any different than despicable Anglo and Euro plagues whole world hates with gusto? No. Serbois are invaders on our land same as Slavic Carpathian plague the Croats. It wasn’t us who came to their land to colonize them, to destroy their people and take their land, to spread ourselves — it was them who came to us! neither do we want or need in any way, shape or form any foreign religion such as Muslims. Muslimes belong to Arabic Peninsula. Our land is small and our people are few compared to others. We shall not tolerate some foreign ways. “Not on our land, not amongst our people” is our motto.

    Lots of great points. But two things are important to bear in mind.

    Thing one is that US contempt for rights and rule of law has not changed at all since 1949. The US has always tried to undermine these principles in two complementary ways. One way is Talmudic-style sophistry in international forums. The other way is flouting the law to discredit it. Most presidents combine both approaches. GHW Bush invaded Panama, but also ratified the ICCPR as ‘non self-executing.’ Clinton directed armed attack on European nations, but also signed the Rome Statute solely to vitiate it with no intention of acceding, and entered legally-void reservations to the CAT that would allow psychological torture. GW Bush invaded Afghanistan and Iraq in defiance of a UNSC seized on the matter, but also tried to demonstrate compliance with the CAT by reading it like COBOL code instead of English to prove Guantanamo’s okey-dokey. Combining both approaches, Obama got a UNSC resolution authorizing use of force on Libya, then interpreted it in bad faith to overstep its bounds by bombarding Sirte to unseat Gaddafy. Trump may be a doing a little more flouting, but he also interprets the CWC with traditional Talmudic mumbo-jumbo to concoct war propaganda.

    Thing two. It’s too pessimistic to conflate the criminal enterprise that controls the US government and some satellites, more or less, with a civilization. There’s really no Western civilization anymore. What we have is a world civilization. The US is veering off from it with a few of its most slavish satellites. The global south, the NAM, and the G-77 are upholding world civilization now. And that’s well over 80 percent of the world’s population. Most significant UNGA resolutions are opposed only by US and Israel and maybe Nauru or someplace like that.

    Nobody can predict how this struggle between the Neocons and the Clinton Gang on one hand and Trump on the other will play out, but my personal guess is that Trump is a disposable President:

    This reads as if you are taking the ‘struggle’ at face value, i.e. Neocons and Clinton vs. Trump, but that doesn’t make any sense right off the bat, surely Neocons are on both sides of the ‘struggle’.

    And, a more cynical view is that the hidden goal of the attacks on Trump is not to destroy Trump but to de-legitimize the US govt. That is, the ‘struggle’ is between Neocons on both sides, and the ultimate goal is to weaken the govt. And indeed, that Trump’s election was supported by Neocons with such a ‘struggle’ in mind.

Rome is center of Mediterranean whereas Constantinople is… as if it sits in the very center of the planet made to be rule all of world, for Americas and Australia are only islands. I am most surprised that no strategic Anglo or Euro has never understood or realized its grandiose strategic importance. To use Bosnia as a staging ground of Islamic invasion into Europa… there will be lots of slaves to catch, o so much joy and delight. I’ve never seen kind slavish as euro. We can have those euro slaves to populate Haemus Mons peninsula but they must be prepared to accept other culture… our culture. And they will, slaves are most susceptible. Then Euros must fight, as euros fight Muslims, Greeks start fight against Muslime Turks. Greeks cannot hope to prevail against nasty Turks, not on their own anyway, but that should be no problem since Greek only need to bring into the fight their fellow Christians especially of Orthodox orientation on Haemus Mons peninsula. Italians must join in. Some will say small chance of happening as Italians are really indulgent, decadent, hedonistic culture, which is true. Hedonists are ruled by fear, and the only man who ever truly knew how to rule Italians was Lucius Cornelius Sulla. Do look and observe how great Sulla ruled Italians. Anyhow, once that happens Mediterranean front shall no doubt be aided and abetted by both Russians and Americans, especially by their weaponry, since Russians are Orthodox and eager to see Roman city of Constantinople liberated from Muslim occupation and Americans since the West is in the state of war against Muslims. Vatican should be easily convinced to liberate its land, and how Asia Minor is determined to taken, i.e. who gets co colonize it and which parts, that is for you to agree. Turks have their land Turkmenistan. One shouldn’t have so many Turkeys around; a single one is more than enough. As for the Muslim faith, it should be confined to its birthplace – Arabic peninsula. Anyhow, that is the only vision of mine in which Christians have value. You have allowed to debase yourselves by the godless humanoid-loving and nature-destroying liberals, and that is on you. Watching liberals be exterminated should be the cosmic justice we can all enjoy, relish and appreciate as liberals have sinned against every kind on this planet: be it birds who roam the skies, lizards who slither the earth, humanoids who contaminate and pollute it or fish which swims underneath it. Of course Muslim religion must be purged from every part of Mediterranean which they occupied and destroyed and in its place old gods must get reborn. This is the vision of Mediterranean rebirth I see.

    Crusades: The Europeans finally fought back after 450 years of constant invasions looting and massive slave raids. Anyone who criticizes the crusaders is an ignoramous who knows nothing of history.

    The Algerian slave raiders and pirates didn’t stop until 1830 when France conquered Algeria and put a stop to the slave raidingand piracy

    • Replies: @Prusmc
  107. Good article, and I can agree with most of it. Still, a few observations are in order.

    1) One cannot be very certain about the Franks and “Charlemagne.” It is possible that Charlemagne is an entirely invented character. This is what German historian Heribert Illig has plausibly argued in several (yet untranslated) books. He also argues rather convincingly that court scribes of Emperor Otto III invented almost three centuries and that we are actually living in the early 1700s. An Italian historian, Giovanni Carnevale, disagrees with Illig and insists (also with rather convincing arguments), that Charlemagne was never in Germany and was born and raised in Italy and lived his entire life near Macerata in Italy. In an ancient church near there you will actually find a marble with an inscription that Charlemagne was buried there (and not in Aachen, Germany), that can only have been put up with the permission of the Vatican. The leading historians in the US, Germany and France that I approached with this dilemma of the three Charlemagnes, were either very angry, dismissive or did not bother to answer at all.

    2) The cultural notions of “East” and “West” are quintessentially European and refer to the division of the Roman Empire in the 4th Century. Since then, Western has come to mean Western Europe and many of its colonial possessions. As Philippe Immarigeon has shrewdly pointed out, the West was also a place where Roman Law has been the legal norm and where the tenets of the FRENCH revolution were influential or adopted. England is a kind of a halfway house, but according to this approach, the US is NOT a part of the West.

    3) The US, by its own definition and volition is not a part of the West. It wants to be “a shining city on a hill” and that in itself signifies isolation, but by making the constitution a sacred document, hovering somewhere beyond time and space, the US founding fathers have placed their creation outside history. Indeed, for all their talk of history, US people have no sense of history, no heritage. Perhaps that is why, like their ISIS protégés, the US consistently tries to annihilate or desecrate other peoples’ history: German, Italian, French, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, Iraqi, Syrian, Libyan art treasures and historical monuments. Perhaps that is why the US tends to pick fights with the modern heirs of ancient civilizations: Germany (over 1000 years of history), Russia (over 1000 years of history), China (4000 years of history), Syria and Iraq (4000 years), Iran (over 4000 years).

    4) International law is sad, cynical joke. What passes for international law is based on the Nuremberg IMT verdicts. Well, the IMT was a kangaroo court if there ever was one, and not unlike Roy Bean’s saloon West of the Pecos River. Basically international law is US brute force dressed up as Lady Justice.

    If your own history is only about a quarter millennium old, when you essentially want to deny that you have a history, and when you consistently deny the value of history by denying or destroying the history of others, this makes for an unpleasant member of the “international community”.

    Mind you, of course there are US people who disagree with official propaganda and the policies of the Washington regime, and whose mindset differs from that of their elites: forgive me for being frank.

    It makes me laugh when people say that Europe is collapsing first and America is somehow in danger but still has a chance to be saved. These people are usually Americans and see everything in terms of still being allowed to keep their guns, therefore all is good. The reality is that the enemy has danced right around you and allowed you to keep your guns but has still taken your rights and your country away. The US is an island in the world where the population has an enormous amount of guns but the population is disillusioned and unorganized and couldn’t agree on who the real enemy is anyway. If you asked 100 “right wing” Americans who the “enemy” is you would get 100 different answers. Americans have all the guns but what good is a gun when you don’t know who to shoot at? European nationalists have a clearer idea of who the enemy is and because their hands aren’t tied by the same document that’s being used against them, they can take quicker and more effective action about closing their borders. Look at Victor Orban’s Hungary and Salvino’s Italy with more to come while the US just talks and talks about it.

Another example of toughness would be the Northwest Mounted Police who policed the Canadian prairies in all weathers in the late 1800’s and in order to toughen the new recruits, were ordered to put salt into their saddle sores as they rode hundreds of miles on horseback.

    LIFE’S A BITCH
    AND THEN YOU DIE

  131. This screed is about 20% correct, 30% BS, 30% oblivious, and the remainder, partially true or correct at best.

    Let’s start with the pure BS, an nonexhaustive list of which would include:

    A. The ridiculous term, and the ridiculous notion of an “AngloZionist Empire” that “is a direct descendant from the Franks.” This nonexistent empire has “only vassal states, puppet regimes and comprador 5th columnists.”

    B. The notion that when Mohammedans “speak of ‘Western Crusaders’ they are absolutely spot on.”

    C. The notion that Ukraine is ruled by a “(completely illegal) Nazi regime”.

    D. The notion of a “9/11 false flag operation”

    And then the misinformed, again, a nonexhaustive list:

    A. Your tracing of “what we nowadays call the western civilization” to the Merovingians, Carolingians, Holy Roman Empire, etc. and not to the Greece of Pericles, Leonidas, Themistocles, Plato, and Aristotle.

    B. The notion that due process “is a farce.” It is, of course, in certain instances, but if you think it’s a farce throughout the society, then you obviously have never been in an American courtroom.

    C. The notion that Americans “gleefully ignore many of the most sacred provisions of the laws of war.”

    As for the oblivious, there is the utter failure to discuss perhaps the most interesting question of all: the extent to which your Mother Russia is part of Western Civ (which I think it is). And what about Japan? Why your concentration, then, only on Western Europe and the USA as examplars of collapse? Are Mother Russia and Japan collapsing, too?

    However, you are 100% correct about:

    A. the corruption in the Democratic party and its lynch mob in Congress;

    B. your comical but accurate analysis of carpet munchers and other minorities

    C. your statement that “the level of ideological intolerance among the opponents of Trump is much, much, higher than among Trump supporters.”

    D. “western civilization also brought the world an immense intellectual legacy which inspired people worldwide.”

    And you are correct that western civilization is in danger of collapse. But the root cause is NOT Zionism; it is NOT the alleged and numerated (1 through 7, although the “list goes on and on”) sins of the present “AngloZionist Empire.” Really, those sins have been with us ever since the time of Pericles.

    No, the root cause of the collapse of western civilization is atheism, Marxism in all its forms, the indolence of plenitude, inviting barbarians into the heartland and the creation of a large slacker class in the heartland, and, of course, Mohammedanism, now armed with nuclear weapons in addition to scimitars and an amazing birthrate despite the practice of FGM.

    Frederick the Great was King of just one European country, the country in which you’ve spent most of your adult life.

    It’s also one of the most socialist countries in Europe as I’m sure you’ve noticed, even as you denounce socialism on Unz.

    Peasant does not mean a starving enslaved serf or homeless wandering farm worker going from harvest to harvest. It means farmer, from big and prosperous to small and poor.

    Prussia didn’t free the serfs till 1874?? South west German states ( more prosperous and civilized) freed the serfs around 1,000 1100 AD.

    Prussia led Germany 1866 to 1918, a short but disastrous time.

    There’s really no Western civilization anymore. What we have is a world civilization.

    That’s an interesting proposition. I’d say that its a bit too early to tell. Historically, civilizations have favored stability over anything else. Industrial economies cannot co-exist with stability. If nothing else, they use up the resources they need (ask the Chinese about resource constraints) and have to develop new resources. There is also a tendency for mature industries to be associated with monopolies that gradually deteriorate. Absent the West, I’d think that the remaining societies would conform to the historical thread.
    There is some reason to believe that this is already underway. VanCrevald’s “The Fate of the State” [1] pointed out back in 1996 that the size of non-governed areas was increasing yearly, and that the ratio of mercenary (private police, independent military units, and today Cartel and similar NGO forces) to government forces was also increasing yearly. I believe that these trends continue today.
    While this does to an extent confirm your hypothesis, it also suggests that the “world civilization” would not be industrialized, and may well consist of different and distinct regional blocks connected only by trade in essentials. In other words, the present world disorder, but possibly without Western society.

    The US has to withdraw from the rest of the world. It needs all its remaining financial resources to maintain its cities, and cannot re-capitalize its military as it would have to do to maintain escalation dominance [1]. The US is additionally faced with city populations that demand both the end of industrial society_and_ their living expenses from the US government. The US will have to withdraw for a time to re-organize.

That ended up giving the AZs the Kurdish held zone in Syria, but at the cost of greatly increasing the extent to which Turkey acts counter to them, Pyrrhic victory, no? The Venezuela op has been a total failure, the power will be back on sooner or later and the Chinese and Russians will have had a chance to hone their skills responding to such cyber attacks. Each weapon the AZs use, blunts said weapon for use in future operations.

    From my pitiful perspective, I don’t see good options for them. A dust up with Russia or China would be a disaster, US ships, even submarines! are filled with homosexuals and women, how’s that going to affect operational effectiveness? Who’s going to brave Russian artilery? For what? Free college? The US military is a “career”, men don’t risk life and limb for a “career”.

    Atheism, Marxism, are products of the ‘western’ civilization, which starts with the increased separation of the Western parts of the Roman Empire from the Empire and the Church of the Empire. Franks have been the principal culprits of this long process of separation and alienation. They have created the Papacy,the concurrent Empire, the Schism, Protestantism, Atheism, Marxism. Charlemagne was the first to ally the Franks with the Muslims in order to fight the Empire. Indeed this ‘western’ civilization has little to do Pericles, Leonidas, etc.

    Agree.

    And agree that Saker is out of touch with American culture, unlikely to have had kids in a public American high school or college any time recently. While the US is indeed a global state going thru massive changes, I think that rather than on the verge of collapse, the US is more like ca. 50 BC when the Roman Republic finally ended and, already having embraced a de facto “global” empire in the Mediterranean, embraced the new imperial state with both hands. What followed was a new military n cultural expansion around a new imperial ideology.

    The PC Cult is our new imperial ideology, in fact a new religion with distinctly imperial overtones, over-using “imperial” for want of a better word, “Socialism” in a perhaps Trotskyan sense. This religion had its origins in the Roosevelt administration, received government army support when Eisenhower sent in the 101st to Little Rock, and came together during its “Exodus”, which was the Civil Rights marches in the South.

    Melanin is its soul, Whiteness its Original Sin, Mother Earth its God, n tenured Jews its priesthood. It preaches egalitarianism, but of course it’s really just as hierarchical as any other political ideology, thus Diversity merely boils down to No Whites Allowed n Better Yet Go Extinct, just like PC is sometimes called Socialism, tho it has little to do with any of the actual historical meanings of that term, which is now interpreted as merely Where’s My Govt Check?

    In this new imperial religion, Gayness is morally superior to Families because the latter are perceived to harm the Great Earth Mother. Unless they are melanin families, of course, because melanin is sinless and can do no wrong (thus any black person in jail is, ipso facto, unjustly oppressed).

    Trump is the modern equivalent of Emperor Julian the Apostate. Like any sensible person, he doesn’t accept an iota of this PC religion, n has temporarily halted its spread in DC. But just as Christianity resumed its march in Rome after Julian was gone, the PC religion will resume its march after Trump is gone and once more swamp not just the US n the DC Swamp, returning it to its prior fetid status, but all of America’s subject provinces, maybe even Russia. After Trump, Russia is the PC Religion’s main target because Russia is White n has an absence of melanin, which can only be fixed by transporting tens of millions of Africans into Russia, with Jews leading the way.

    Logic is not part of this; emotion n irreducible emotional values are driving this new religion, n if it takes a nuclear war to spread these values n bring a hundred million Africans into Europe n Russia, then war there will be. Obama could not have stopped the drone bombing even if he had wanted to because even tho Muslims have melanin n therefore can do no wrong, the PC Jewish priesthood (who consider themselves to be literally “black” (who you gonna believe: them or your lyin eyes?)) have an intrinsic interest in keeping the ME subject to the AngloZionist Empire until properly converted or colonized.

    A very pertinent question. Obviously, I have experience that convinces me. I suggest that you ask the question in a more serious way, and attempt to find an answer yourself.

    The answer isn’t obvious. It is quite possible that any increased funding would be wasted.

    If you will look at the original posting (not just the single footnote) you will see my point: the US cannot afford to recapitalize its military. Further, this involves the end of the entire existing political class, which is diverting so much capital flow into current consumption that the existence of cities, at least, is at serious risk.

    I believe that this assertion is important enough for you to seriously consider. From your reaction, i suspect that you are part of the political class, so the question would be of unusual importance to you.

Maybe that’s the way to reconcile our viewpoints. The US divergence I see has a lot in common with the tension between Brethonic and Norman rule circa 1000 C.E.

    World civilization, like Brethonic civilization, is focused on dispute resolution, while US ideology, like Norman society, is authoritarian, fixated on crimes and state punishment, or state retribution internationally. The US responds to being out of step with the world by making its international state violence harder to attribute: with aggression by sending armed bands instead of direct attack, with the disguised coercive interference of color revolutions, and with sneak attacks using illegal biological warfare or sabotage from cyberspace. World civilization responds by tasking its security services to attribute US internationally wrongful acts so they can be subjected to dispute resolution procedures.

    Because this is an important article, and not just a good one, I think I should make a few notes.

    I assume that some readers will have trouble making sense of The Saker’s opening, in which he asserts that Western Civilization is the fruit of the Franks, and not of the Greeks and Romans. That is an old Eastern Orthodox argument that is first and foremost about who is the rightful heir of the Roman Empire and its Hellenism. The correct answer is that both Eastern and Western Europe are rightful heirs, with each having major influence in its development from non-Italic and non-Greek European peoples. As Celtic is not a separate language group from Latin/Romance (whether you label it Italo-Celtic or Celto-Italic, it is one family) the Germanic group is the major addition linguistically and culturally to Western Europe’s development out of the Hellenistic Roman Empire.

    And though Franks were in origin a Germanic tribe, they always stood out from other Germans. In fact, it is best to label them the Germanic tribe that embraced as much of Italo-Celtic, language as well as all aspects of lived culture, as could be managed. The ‘French’ language, for example, is not Germanic but is the product of Latin working on the northern dialects of Gaulish Celtic. The French language is as much a rightful, direct, heir of the Roman Empire as is Italian, and the same is true of French culture. And those statements cannot be made, truthfully, about Germany.

    The barbarian tribes who overran the Western Roman Empire killed it and ushered in the Dark Ages. And nearly all of them were Germanic. But the Franks were the one who stood out for dropping, for casting aside, their Germanic language and basic Germanic traits and worldview in order to lead the revival in some form of the culture of the partially Christianized Western Roman Empire.

    Where The Saker is correct is that the cultural drive to destroy that is a major part of Western Civilization is Germanic. As Germanic tribes became fully immersed in Catholicism, their language of religion, and therefore morals, became Latin, rather than something Germanic. And that is necessary to taming the Germanic drive to slaughter so that they can have room to slaughter more.

    That is the practical reason that Eastern Orthodoxy, which worked very well, ideally in many cases, with Slavs, would not tame Germans. Unless Germanic peoples are tamed religiously and morally with non-Germanic language and attendant folkways serving as buffers on the most warlike Germanic tendencies, they will run amuck. Therefore, the Russian attacks on Rome and its (Liberal, Protestant and Soviet-controlled Russian Orthodox approved, Vatican II discarded) Traditional Latin Mass as being tied to, part and parcel of, even the cause of, pagan Germanic and post-Reformation Germanic warring to build and rebuild and expand and re-expand empire as a way of life always miss the point and often are 180 degrees wrong.

    Medieval Angles, Saxons, Jutes, and Frisians, as well as Danes and Swedes and Norwegians, were Germans. Anglo-Saxon is Germanic. WASP culture is Germanic. WASP culture, the culture of the Anglo-Zionist Empire, intends to have the One Ring to Rule Them All, because that is the way that culturally and linguistically Germanic peoples think and act.

    In early Russia, what happened was that Slavic culture absorbed Norse: the culture of the Slavic masses set the basic standards for the emerging nation, meaning that with Christianization, Germanic proclivities among the ruling warlords began to be watered down. Russia would be Slavic and not Germanic.

    And that may prove to be the saving of civilization in this age in which the Anglo-Zionist Empire, and its forerunner the Brit Empire, and Germany and the Netherlands and Sweden and Norway, etc. are dying to bring on the Gotterdammerung – the Germanic desire for everything, including themselves, to be destroyed.

    The most serious impediment for a correct understanding of the last millennium history (at least) is the ambiguous use of the term Europe. Is it geographical, cultural, political?
    Indeed, these things are no more taught in schools. But when they were still taught, people would have learned that the very name Europe was given after the name of the Phoenician Princess Europa, the daughter of Agenor, the Phoenician King of Tyre, abducted by Zeus in the form of a bull and becoming the mother of Minos, the legendary King of Crete. The would have lerned that the first recorded usage of Eurṓpē as a geographic term is in the Homeric Hymn to Delian Apollo, in reference to the western shore of the Aegean Sea and beyond, up to the “Pillars of Hercules’ (Gibraltar).
    So, Europe was initially very Mediterranean, the place where both the ‘Greek’ philosophy and Christianity were born. Later geographers extended the boundaries of Europe to the Caucasus and the rivers of Southern Russia, which become the dividing line between ‘Europe’ and ‘Asia’, including the shores of the Pontus Euxinus (the Black Sea). The Emperor Diocletian created the province Europa in the larger Diocese of Thrace. And that province was exactly where Constantin would build the New Rome. One can say that Constantinople was the very center of Europe!
    When the barbarian extra-European Franks usurped the Imperial office with the help of the Bishop of Old Rome, they tried to justify it with the ideology of ‘translatio Imperii’ (the transfer of the imperial power) from Constantinople to the West, because of the ‘decadence’ of ‘East’ invaded by ‘Asians’, couched as a revival of Old Rome. By the same toked they ‘translated’ and the name of Europe, fraudulently appropriating it for themselves. Even more fraudulent is the current application of the label ‘Europe’ to the regions inhabited by the ‘white Nordic’ tribes.

    And here I sit, waiting for greatness to be thrust upon me.

  190. Governments exist to create the minorities that benefit – rich and poor. Get rid of legislation that enables corporations or interferes with starting and running businesses. Most of all, get rid of the goddam patent laws. If you invent something are you paying the millions of predecessors that did the science and technology that made YOUR invention possible? Patents do more damage to progress than anything other than government itself.

    That’s what Christers say, and we all know how trustworthy Christers are — just look at that collection of contradictions called the New Testament, the book so filled with lies that Jesus was even made part of the God in it, because Christers were inspired to draw “inspirations” from Babylonian religion. The origins of Trinity starts with Baal, Ishtar and Tammuz of the ancient Babylon. Egyptians adopted it to their gods Horus, Set and Isis (which are the same gods only carrying different, now Egyptian, names). Constantine didn’t convert. It’s just another one of Christer lies.
