First, a confession: I really don’t know how the corporate media has covered the Trump trip to NATO and the G7 summit. Frankly, I don’t really care – it’s been a long while since I stopped listening to these imperial shills. There is a risk in completely ignoring them, and that risk is the risk to say “white” when everybody else says “black”. This is a small risk – and, after all, who cares? – but today I will take it again and give you my own take on Trump’s trip to Europe: I think that it was an immense success. But not necessarily for Trump as much as it was an immense success for the enemies of the Empire, like myself. Here is my own rendition on what I think has taken place.

First, Trump was consistently rude. I cannot judge if this lack of manners is the real Trump or whether Trump was tying to send an unspoken message. For whatever this is worth, I know of only one person who had personal and private dealing with the Trump family, including The Donald Himself, and according to him, Trump is an impeccably courteous person. Whatever may be the case, whether this was nature or no so subtle “messaging”, Trump truly outdid himself. He unceremoniously pushed aside the Prime Minister of Montenegro, who richly deserves being treated with utter contempt. Then he blocked out Angela Merkel during the official photo taking. He made the G7 wait for over an hour, he refused to walk to another photo op by foot. He didn’t even bother putting on his translation headset when others were speaking and, crime of crimes, he told the NATO members states to pay more money while not saying a single word about Article 5. It is hard to gauge what the rest of the assembled politicians really thought (prostitutes are good at hiding and repressing their own feelings), but Merkel clearly was angry and frustrated. Apparently, everybody hated Trump, with the sole possible exception of Marcon (but he is a high-end prostitute). As much as Obama was a charmer, Trump seems to relish the role of ruffian. But most importantly, Trump treated the EU/NATO gang with the contempt they deserve and that, frankly, I find most refreshing. Why?

The ugly truth about NATO: Eurosissies and Eurodummies

What is NATO? Originally, NATO was supposed to be a military alliance to oppose the Soviet armed forces and, later, the Warsaw Treaty Organization. Now that these two have disappeared, NATO has no real mission. What NATO still has is a huge bureaucracy. There is a lot of money to be made through NATO: salaries, contracts, investments, etc. Heck – these guys just built themselves gigantic and brand new headquarters, probably to “deter the Russian aggression”, right? NATO is also a huge bureaucratic lift which can pull people up to the real centers of power, including financial power. Furthermore, NATO is also a gang of people who use NATO to advance their petty career or political agenda. At best, NATO is a gigantic fig leaf covering the obscenity of western imperialism.

What NATO is not is a militarily useful alliance. Oh yes, sure, the Americans can use NATO to force the Europeans to use US military hardware, that is true, but should a war break out, especially a *real* war against Russia, the Americans would push all these Eurosissies out of the way and do 90%+ of the fighting. Most NATO armies are a joke anyway, but even those who are marginally better fully depend on the US for all the force multipliers (intelligence, logistics, transportation, communications, navigation, etc.).

And then there is the “New Europe”: the crazies in Poland or the Baltics who are making an immense effort in trying to put the Old Europeans (who made the huge mistake of accepting them into NATO) on a collision course with Russia. From a pragmatic point of view, NATO member states should have never EVER incorporated the “New Europeans” into their alliance. The same goes for the EU, of course. But in their illusions of grandeur and their petty revanchism they decided that *real* Europe needed to be joined at the hip with “New Europe” and now they are paying the price for this strategic mistake of colossal proportions. Of course, the Americans are bastards for encouraging the Eurodummies in their delusional dreams, but now that the deed is done, the Americans are doing the rational and pragmatic thing: they are letting the Eurodummies deal with their own mistakes. This is best shown by Trump’s new policy about the Ukraine: he simply does not care.

Oh sure, he will say something about the Minsk Agreement, maybe mention Crimea, he might even say something about a Russian threat. But then he turns away and walks. And the Eurodummies are now discovering something which they should have suspected all along: the Ukraine is *their* problem now, the Americans don’t care because they have nothing to lose and nothing to win either, and so besides empty words they will offer nothing. Much worse is the fact that it appears that it will be the Europeans who will end up paying most of the costs of rebuilding the Ukraine when the current Nazi regime is finally removed (but that is a topic for a future article).

There is karmic justice at work here: all the Eurodummies will now have to deal with the fallout from the total collapse of the Ukraine, but the first ones to pay will be the Poles who tried so hard to draw NATO and the real Europe into their revanchist agenda. Besides, is it not simply justice for the Poles who for years have been ranting about a Russian threat and who for years have been supporting nationalist and even neo-Nazi movements in the Ukraine to now be faced with a deluge of problems (social, political, economic, etc.) coming from “their” Ukrainians while the Russians will be looking at this mess from the east, protected by the two Novorussian republics and formidable National and Border guards. As most Russians will, I wish the Europeans “bien du plaisir” with the upcoming waves of Ukrainian refugees and the “European values” they will bring with them.

Russian National Guardsmen

Russian National Guardsmen

[Sidebar: will Russia fare any better with her refugees? Absolutely! Why? Because the Eurodummies are not just Eurodummies, but also Eurosissies. When faced with a refugee-generated crime wave all they can do is roll over and go into deep denial. In Russia any such crime wave will be met with all the force and even violence of the state. Take a look at these guys (National Guard) and imagine how they would react to the kind of events which have taken place in “Old Europe” recently. Try raping their women!]

ORDER IT NOW

The sad truth is that NATO and the EU are do not deserve to be treated with any respect at all. Trump’s condescension is fully deserved. Worse, the Americans don’t even have to pretend to take the Europeans seriously because, for the past decade, the latter have sheepishly obeyed the most ridiculous and even self-defeating orders from the Americans.

Truly, Victoria Nuland’s famous words about the EU were expressing something of an American consensus about the Old Continent.

The G7: “bubbles from a sunken world”

Bubbles from a sunken world” is not an expression I coined. It was the Russian author Ivan Solonevich who wrote that about the kind of exiled Russian aristocrats who still thought that they would one day recover all their properties seized by the Soviets in Russia. Still, this expression also applies to the G7 leaders who meet with a great deal of gravitas and pretend like they really matter. In truth, they don’t. There used to be a time when the G7 really was huge, but now with China and India missing at the table and with Russia expelled, the G7 has become just a kaffeeklatsch for ugly rich people, an occasion to reminisce about the good old days when Europe still mattered.

In reality, of course, and just like with the EU or NATO, the G7 is an anachronistic leftover of a long gone past. G7 countries are simply not the place where the real action is nowadays. But even worse than that is the fact that the leaders of the G7 suffer from the same form of senile dementia as the EU or NATO leaders which is unsurprising since they are more or less the same people: they have nothing original or new to say, nothing important for sure. They have no vision at all, very little legitimacy and even less credibility. Yes, sure, in France Macron did win, but only because the French establishment engaged in a massive propaganda campaign aimed at beating Marine LePen. But if you consider that only about 20% of the French voted for Macron in the first round and that he achieved that rather pitiful score even though he had the full support of the French establishment then you realize how unpopular that establishment really is with the French. While the Rothschild propaganda machine tried to present Macron like some kind of de Gaulle, most French people did see him for what he was: a hollow puppet in the hands of the transnational plutocracy. And yet, of all the leaders of the G7, Macron is undeniably the most dynamic one, not only due to his young age, but simply because he does not come across as some kind of fossil from a distant past.

Trump and the Eurodwarves

Trump and the Eurodwarves

We are told that the G7 is composed of the seven major advanced economies on the planet (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States), but the only real power in that list is the US. Next, it would be Germany, but Merkel’s immigration policies have resulted in a EU-wide disaster and she is very much an embattled leader. She is also a prime culprit of the Ukrainian fiasco. Next in line would be the UK, but the UK has just left the EU and May is presiding over a process which she herself opposes, as do the British elites. Which leaves us with Japan, Italy and Canada. Japan’s past economic power is being overshadowed by China’s immense economy while in political terms the Japanese are voiceless US subcontractors. Italy should not even be part of the G7, at least not in political and economic terms, because Italy is much closer to her Mediterranean neighbors such as Spain and Greece and therefore looked down with contempt by the “northerners”, especially Germany. Which leaves Canada, arguably the most irrelevant and subservient country of them all (when is the last time Canada had anything of relevance to say about anything? Exactly). The bottom line is this: in economic terms the G7 has pretty much been replaced by the G20 while in political terms the G7 is an empty shell. Trump fully realizes that and that is why he does not even try to be polite with them.

Obama was a born used car salesman: he could be charming and polite with anybody and everybody. Trump has never had any need to act in such a way and, in the case of the Europeans, he does not even feel like trying.

Trump’s contempt for European leaders is definitely undiplomatic and shows a basic lack of education, but it still is a contempt the European leaders richly deserve. Furthermore, while it is true that the AngloZionist Empire is sinking, the European part is sinking much faster than the American one. Which is unsurprising since the US is truly a very unique country.

The American Sonderfall

While I was writing this article, I have been listening to the press conference of Donald Trump in the Rose Garden explaining to the world that the US would now withdraw from the Paris Agreement. I don’t want to discuss the merits of this agreements or the reasons behind Trump’s decision, but I will stress that this places the US in direct opposition to 195 other countries who signed this treaty expecting the US to abide by its terms. 195 countries really means just about the entire planet. And yet Trump feels confident that he can afford taking a separate path and the rest of the world will have to shut up.

Trump is right. The US is a “special case”.

There is absolutely nothing the rest of the planet can do to prevent the United States from withdrawing from this or any other agreement. The best proof of that fact can be found in the more or less official US position that it does not need a UN Security Council to impose sanctions on another nation, threaten it with military aggression or even go to war against it. Right now, the US have attacked Syria several times already and there are US forces deployed inside Syria and nobody seems to care, which is kind of ironic considering how many lawyers there are in the US and, even more so, in Congress. Yet everybody sheepishly accepts that the US is, for some reason, above the law, that laws are for “others”, not for the “indispensable nation” with a “duty” and a “special responsibility” to “lead the world” (sorry, I indulge, but I just love this kind of imperialistic language!).

In politics, power is not absolute, but relative. Sure, the US military is basically dysfunctional and doesn’t seem to be capable of frightening anybody on the US list of “enemies”, but compared to Europe the US is a powerhouse. As for the Europeans, they are depending on the Americans for pretty much everything that matters. Trump understands all that and he seem to have more respect for Kim Jong-un than for Angela Merkel. I can’t blame him as this is also how I feel.

The many sweet ironies of it all

The traditional British foreign policy has always been to fosters wars in Europe to prevent any kind of continental unity. As for the US, its main objective has always been to keep “keep the Americans in, the Russians out, and the Germans down”. And now we see the Brits leaving the EU and the Americans pulling out well, maybe not out of Europe per se, but out of most of Europe’s problems. So why are the Anglos pulling out? Is that not a clear sign that Europe is sinking?

One of the favorite slogans of the Ukronazis is “Україна – це Європа” (The Ukraine is Europe). Alas, as I wrote in a past article, it is Europe which “became” (like) the Ukraine: poor, corrupt, lead by hypocritical ideologues totally detached from reality and, most importantly, totally fixated on imaginary threats. The only difference between the EU leaders and their Ukronazi counterparts is that while the latter have declared that they are already fighting a Russian invasion, the former are only preparing to counter it. That’s it. Other than that, I see no difference, at least none that matters. Oh, I almost forgot the Americans: they don’t fight the Russians (yet?), but they are “defending” their country from the onslaught of Russian hackers and pro-Russian moles in the entourage of Donald Trump. Brilliant.

In this world got mad, only the Russians are patiently trying to convince their western partners to return to some semblance of sanity. But, frankly, I don’t think that they are very hopeful. They see how the so-called “West” is falling apart, how the ruling elites of the West appear to be hell-bent on self-destruction and they wonder: why are our “western partners” so determined to bring about their own demise and why are they blaming us for what they are doing to themselves? They also often laugh at the quasi magic powers the paranoid crazies in the West seem to ascribe to Russia. One senior US official, James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence, even thinks that Russians are “almost genetically driven to co-opt, penetrate, gain favor, whatever, which is a typical Russian technique” to subvert democracy (I can’t decide if he sounds more like a Nazi racist or a clown… probably a mix of both). As I said, the Russians are mostly laughing at it all, but just to make darn sure things don’t turn ugly, they are also re-creating their famous “Shock Armies” (including at least one Tank Army) and doubling the size of the Russian Airborne Forces bringing them to 72,000 soldiers and generally preparing for World War 3.

But for the time being, war is far less likely than it would have been the case with Hillary. What we see is Trump making “America great again” by stepping on its allies in Europe and by contemptuously disregarding the rest of humanity. That kind of arrogant megalomania is not a pretty sight for sure – but way better than WWIII. And “better than WWIII” is all we can hope for in the foreseeable future.

    “Bubbles from a sunken world” is not an expression I coined.

    It’s a good reapplication of it, though.

    The peoples of Europe no longer have the advantage they had from the industrial revolution they created. They are resource poor, having no great areas of territory, and that depleted by centuries of use. There is one remaining asset they could use to maintain some of their position of punching so dramatically above their weight, which has been their status in human affairs for the past few centuries at least, and that would be the cultural and genetic advantages they used to create that dominance in the first place.

    The ultimate dark joke is the fact that the said peoples of Europe are in the process of actively destroying any remnants of that final asset, through cultural degradation and mass immigration.

    In this light, we should consider to what degree the political and propaganda support for said processes of cultural degradation and mass immigration emanate from the rivals and enemies of the European peoples, with the intention of preventing forever any recovery from the disastrous, suicidal wars of the early C20th. The most obvious source of such malign influence would be the US, an offshoot of the European peoples which gained the most from the wars in question and has the most to lose from any recovery of the Old World European peoples to any position of sovereignty.

    (In this context, of course, any process that hastens the alienation of the European political classes from their comfortable and profitable subordination to the US elites, such as the events Saker describes above, can only be regarded as a useful contribution to the process of recovery of sovereignty.)

  12. Don’t give Trump too much credit. After hearing his campaign rhetoric, I thought one of this first moves would be to end the ERI, a recently created $3 billion annual American military slush fund to add bases and equipment stores in Europe. Check out this Dept of Defense press release this week…

    “The Defense Department’s fiscal year 2018 budget request includes nearly $4.8 billion for the European Reassurance Initiative to enhance deterrence and defense and improve the readiness of forces in Europe, the U.S. European Command director of strategy, plans and policy said today. Air Force Maj. Gen. David W. Allvin held a telephone briefing with reporters, speaking from Eucom headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany.

    ERI funding for next fiscal year is up $1.4 billion over fiscal 2017, he said, noting that the funding increase will support the deterrence of future Russian aggression and malign influence through increased joint air, sea and land force responsiveness and expanded interoperability with combined multinational forces. ‘This is one of our nation’s commitments to Europe, and it demonstrates our strong dedication to the trans-Atlantic bond and the defense of our allies,’ Allvin said.”

    We, the Dutch, in a referendum rejected the EU association treaty with Ukraine.
    Of course in the democratic Netherlands and the even more democratic EU it had no effect.

    But it did have a curious effect.
    When our prime minister Rutte, nickname Pinokkio for his lies, defended rejecting the referendum he referred to Russian vacuum bombs on Aleppo.

    So he confirmed what we knew, the Ukraine association is part of the war of the west against Russia.
    Rutte did not condemn the USA MOAB vacuum bomb east of Abottabad, Pakistan.

    NATO should have been dissolved in 1990, perhaps already when the Cuba crisis was solved peacefully.

    Eurosissies? Eurodummies? the ‘journalism’ here is becoming increasingly puerile, perhaps aiming for a dumbed down audience as traffic has grown?

    “Trump is an impeccably courteous person”?

    The man has a global reputation of a human pig, a racist, a misogynist, a bigot…The more I see such outlandish and frankly bewildering statements on here, the more I begin to believe my own value of the site has been too quickly given and now appears misguided.

    I repeat, Trump has long ago persuaded the world that he is scum. Bush was bad enough, basically a special needs coke fiend. Yet he is one reason why the rest of the world understands how a man as sickeningly appalling as Trump could get into so called ‘power’. This was not the media cleverly depicting him in a bad light, he has always behaved in the same way, always cultivated the same public image, many moons before running for president. It is not brainwashing or conditioning to find a nasty moron as putrid, it is natural to be sickened by sick souls. It is possible that the site has been co-opted, or was a tool designed to monitor and direct and feed a non mainstream audience who revel in their own arrogant assertion of exceptionalism?

    I am unsure as of yet as to why the author has gradually parted Trump and the US government from the anglozionist machine. When clearly, by every measure, that power structure owns the US government, decides its every major decision and as for Trump making any decisions that matter…indeed, alleged ‘experts’ are focusing on how he shakes hands with other ‘leaders’ rather focusing on the ins and outs of what the anglozionists have organised behind the scenes of $300bn moving from KSA to the banksters.

    Trump is no leader. The more he is assumed as much the less credibility a writer enjoys. The man is a laughing stock globally, despised, cringed at, as our the people who voted for him. Nothing has changed with US policy, because it is not decided by the US government. Hilary, Obama, Trump, whoever…they are Punch and Judy to draw attention, to nourish the fable of democracy, to provide a human shape to inhuman power…

    By focusing on the totem with strings attached, the real show is missed…

    Your critique of Saker's evaluation of Trump is basically grounded deeply from within the matrix, whose prisoner you seem to be. Yes, Trump is widely painted to be "a laughing stock globally, despised, cringed at, as are the people who voted for him" but no, that is the view that the mass media has been dishing out. It is not true, simply not true, even though many have swallowed it along with a whole load of marbles. You are basically paraphrasing Clinton when you jeer "the people who voted for him". Yes, these "despicable folk" did vote Trump into power, and yes they might well do so again. You do not seem to understand the processes at work here: part democracy, part a revolt of the people sickened by the one-sided narrative propagated in the media.

    We are on an extended vacation with family in the southern and central Philippines, and by far most people we talk to, if they have any opinion, like Trump a lot. This includes a medical doctor, several lawyers, nurses working in the phils and the USA and Canada, caregivers, and a host of people with much less formal education and much lower wages and standard of living, alike.

    Outside the heavily Muslim part of the Phils, called the ARMM, it seems that regular Filipinos, from the poor up, tend to like Trump.

    NonMuslims in and from India like the guy, too, in our experience.

    High School girl logic - "everybody says ..." so it must be true.

    Trump is indeed well brought up with easy good manners. He is also quite capable of bare-knuckled directness, as one would expect in an American president.

    The media-amplified anti-Trump consensus of second-rate bien pensants in Europe is a pathetic circle jerk. No matter what happens in the U.S., Europe will never get back to where it was five years ago.

    Although I only met Donald Trump briefly while he and I were with our families at the airport years ago, he struck me as a genuinely friendly and very sincere family man and nothing like the frightening caricature of your paranoid imagination.

    I'll bet that when you hear him speak you somehow know he's really thinking about doing to you what you'd do to him if you could, right?

    Be honest with yourself. If you met a real man like Donald Trump in person, it'd probably be a first for you and you'd be bowing and scraping with a stupid grin on your face like a member of the press corps.

    There are a good many things that can be said about Trump, but your 'description” of the man is simply idiotic. Of course the 'world” hates Trump. He's in the process of showing the world what the Federal Government is supposed to be doing – putting the US first. All the rest is simply one rant after another because they aren't able to get their way anymore.

    Saker has serious credibility problems, but Trump is the least of those. By far. You, on the other hand have no such problem as you have no credibility to question. You're simply another with Trump Derangement Syndrome.

    You have similar problem with Bush.

    You write like you get your income from the CIA. Of course we all now know this to be a well-documented tradition that dates back to the 1950s. Trump repeatedly called NATO "obsolete" during the campaign ,but was ultimately forced to back off due to the ridiculously open coup threats and the howling of the journalistic hyenas controlled by Deep State-MIC. Nevertheless, his performance on his European tour shows he has not entirely given up. Oh, and no one should miss that you are implicitly endorsing (by refusing to mention it) the insane nonstop campaign of Russophobia being carried out by the D's and the major organs of "Cathedral" propaganda. These people make the late Joseph McCarthy look like the epitome of restraint, circumspection and decency.

    "The Defense Department's fiscal year 2018 budget request includes nearly $4.8 billion for the European Reassurance Initiative to enhance deterrence and defense and improve the readiness of forces in Europe, the U.S. European Command director of strategy, plans and policy said today. Air Force Maj. Gen. David W. Allvin held a telephone briefing with reporters, speaking from Eucom headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany.

    ERI funding for next fiscal year is up $1.4 billion over fiscal 2017, he said, noting that the funding increase will support the deterrence of future Russian aggression and malign influence through increased joint air, sea and land force responsiveness and expanded interoperability with combined multinational forces. 'This is one of our nation's commitments to Europe, and it demonstrates our strong dedication to the trans-Atlantic bond and the defense of our allies,' Allvin said."

    We, the Dutch, in a referendum rejected the EU association treaty with Ukraine.
    Of course in the democratic Netherlands and the even more democratic EU it had no effect.

    But it did have a curious effect.
    When our prime minister Rutte, nickname Pinokkio for his lies, defended rejecting the referendum he referred to Russian vacuum bombs on Aleppo.

    So he confirmed what we knew, the Ukraine association is part of the war of the west against Russia.
    Rutte did not condemn the USA MOAB vacuum bomb east of Abottabad, Pakistan.

    NATO should have been dissolved in 1990, perhaps already when the Cuba crisis was solved peacefully.

    I’m not so sure that the West has the will, purpose, or capacity for sacrifice to prosecute a Third World War. I think the Russians are primarily preparing to defend themselves from the disorganized, spastic lashing-out of a dying West. They need a credible nuclear force to deter the West from launching an end-of-life nuclear strike, and sufficient ground forces to protect their borders from refugees and bandit military units while the West finishes its death throes and then ( I hope) re-birth.

  17. Great article.
    I can only hope Trump continues to treat the EU political elites as just so many gutless dogs & inept clowns: because they are.
    Perhaps such treatment will wake the EU up (sure: LOL !)
    The Saker is right about Europe’s increasing insignificance…but, the answers are there.
    Start with the most elementary act of common sense: stop ALL sanctions, whether economic or political against Russia. Then fully commit to Eurasian integration.
    Sure, the US will SPIT, but, the EU is sinking – fast.
    Anyway, I’ll dream on…..

  19. Trump is no leader. The more he is assumed as much the less credibility a writer enjoys. The man is a laughing stock globally, despised, cringed at, as our the people who voted for him.

    You have entirely missed the point. We know good and well that the president alone does not get to make any important foreign policy decisions–or probably any decisions at all. We know just as well that he is expected to be a salesman promoting policies crafted by the banks, corporations and the deep state. We know. The point is that Trump is an incredibly bad spokesman! He is discrediting the empire by his very presence.

    We don’t want to be admired or respected for destroying one country after the next. We don’t want to be the leaders of the ‘free’ world. We don’t want to be part of any entangling alliances, or any ‘new world order’. We just want our country back. And since they won’t let us simply vote to end the empire, we have no further recourse but to try and sabotage and discredit it from within. And it’s working! It’s working because of Trump.

    So I say: let him be as vulgar and uncouth as wants. Let him smack around the other NATO countries until they finally wake up. Let him further erode our increasingly untenable position in the middle east. Let him!

    It’s all part of God’s plan for man, my friend. If we have to endure a little international isolation in order to achieve our aims, well that’s just fine with us. We are, after all, isolationists. We don’t want empire or foreign wars. We just want our country back.

  21. Trump’s contempt for European leaders is definitely undiplomatic and shows a basic lack of education, but it still is a contempt the European leaders richly deserve.

    Funny thing is that the same could be accurately stated about Israeli contempt for the lickspittle US “leadership.”

    Also, the comments about the Ukrainian immigrants reminds me what happened to Germany after it served as sanctuary for the refugees from the pogroms in Russia. It’s unfortunate that Germany is being forced to endure yet another round of that sort of thing.

    Yeah, I have a problem with that one too. I don’t see such chivalry coming from US - assuming 90% of the fighting to save Europe. NATO was designed with one purpose only – to defend US and no one else. Anybody who believes otherwise - doesn’t live in the real world.

    In the 68 years of NATO existence, the only country to ever invoke article 5 was – you guess it – US. Article 5 means asking for help from other NATO members to come to your defense when you are attacked. So US asked for help because they were “attacked” in Afghanistan.

    That’s like me going armed into a bank and trying to rob it, and then complaining that I was "attacked" by the security guard. NATO was simply an early version of the theorem: We fight them over there, so we don’t have to fight them here. “Them” in this case being the Russians, instead of the terrorists. Like the Russians were ever planning to cross the Atlantic to fight the Americans “here”. Then again, when was the last time paranoia was rational anyway?

    "Trump is an impeccably courteous person"?

    The man has a global reputation of a human pig, a racist, a misogynist, a bigot...The more I see such outlandish and frankly bewildering statements on here, the more I begin to believe my own value of the site has been too quickly given and now appears misguided.

    I repeat, Trump has long ago persuaded the world that he is scum. Bush was bad enough, basically a special needs coke fiend. Yet he is one reason why the rest of the world understands how a man as sickeningly appalling as Trump could get into so called 'power'. This was not the media cleverly depicting him in a bad light, he has always behaved in the same way, always cultivated the same public image, many moons before running for president. It is not brainwashing or conditioning to find a nasty moron as putrid, it is natural to be sickened by sick souls. It is possible that the site has been co-opted, or was a tool designed to monitor and direct and feed a non mainstream audience who revel in their own arrogant assertion of exceptionalism?

    I am unsure as of yet as to why the author has gradually parted Trump and the US government from the anglozionist machine. When clearly, by every measure, that power structure owns the US government, decides its every major decision and as for Trump making any decisions that matter...indeed, alleged 'experts' are focusing on how he shakes hands with other 'leaders' rather focusing on the ins and outs of what the anglozionists have organised behind the scenes of $300bn moving from KSA to the banksters.

    Trump is no leader. The more he is assumed as much the less credibility a writer enjoys. The man is a laughing stock globally, despised, cringed at, as our the people who voted for him. Nothing has changed with US policy, because it is not decided by the US government.

    President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement caused anger and anxiety across the world. But is there more than meet the eye? How many critics have actually read the agreement themselves – as President Putin rightfully points out? The agreement is a framework agreement with no particular obligations. There are no guidelines as to how resources should be spent, and the resources which the US ratified are quite substantial.

He is changing our foreign policy to the extent that he isn’t pursuing regeigm change in Syria even though we have boots on the ground.

    Trump’s actions are intentionally rude towards some and, contrary to belief in some circles, he’s not mad, just flabergasting.

    I believe that, despite the fact that we have been a fascist economic state since the Origins of the Truman Doctrine and the build up of the MIIC, Trump didn’t become a billionaire because he’s clueless. I’m in favor of his actions, so far. He has said screw the Globalist and screw the wasted-brains-EPA.

    Everything in the world is controlled by Money Grabbing Economy Controllers so Trump will have issues getting his MAGA agenda but his foreign policy, despite the Syria hiccup, is acceptable. After decades of our forces killing millions of civilians, if Syria lost a few at that airbase,well..it could have been worse.

    Your critique of Saker’s evaluation of Trump is basically grounded deeply from within the matrix, whose prisoner you seem to be. Yes, Trump is widely painted to be “a laughing stock globally, despised, cringed at, as are the people who voted for him” but no, that is the view that the mass media has been dishing out. It is not true, simply not true, even though many have swallowed it along with a whole load of marbles. You are basically paraphrasing Clinton when you jeer “the people who voted for him”. Yes, these “despicable folk” did vote Trump into power, and yes they might well do so again. You do not seem to understand the processes at work here: part democracy, part a revolt of the people sickened by the one-sided narrative propagated in the media.

    How does that fit your lame stereotyping, which you regurgitate after been spoon Fed by your own brain washing machine.?

    Kindly explain. As I have been writing of my support for those leaders for many moons indeed....and believe that in itself instantly makes your condemnation appallingly misguided.

    {You never have to rape Russian women. They let you. Sometimes for a price.}

    Yeah, sure.

    I guess these 'rapefugees' thought the same thing: turned out they were brutally mistaken.

    {A group of 51 refugees were brutally assaulted outside a night club in Murmansk, Russia, after they groped and molested women at a night club Saturday.
    The refugees had previously been ordered to leave Norway for “bad behavior” and tried their luck in Russia. What they didn’t realize when they went out clubbing in Murmansk is that Russians have less tolerance when it comes to sexual assault on local women than other European countries.}

    {The refugees allegedly groped and harassed women in a similar manner as the assaults in Cologne on New Year’s Eve. A group of male Russian took them aside to “educate” them that “Cologne is 2,500 kilometers south of here.”}

    {The refugees tried to flee but were quickly captured by the Russians. They then took them out to the street and gave them a beating they will remember. Police arrived to break up the fight but locals report that they threw a few punches at the refugees before arresting 33 of them. Eighteen refugees were in such bad condition they had to be take to the hospital.}*

    I am guessing with the National Guard guys the scum would have ended up in the morgue instead of a hospital.

Because the Eurodummies are not just Eurodummies, but also Eurosissies. When faced with a refugee-generated crime wave all they can do is roll over and go into deep denial. In Russia any such crime wave will be met with all the force and even violence of the state. Take a look at these guys (National Guard) and imagine how they would react to the kind of events which have taken place in “Old Europe” recently. Try raping their women!]”

    I doubt that anyone claims there were no pogroms in Russia. The issue is whether you buy the standard Jewish, and Leftist Western, set of cliches about the pogroms. If you do not, you will be damned for daring to see larger pictures.

    Jews were grossly over-represented in the various Leftist/anarchist groups that gave us the glory of Bolshevik revolution. Jews came into the Russian Empire in large numbers only with the absorption of much of the Polish Empire, and those Jews began their time ruled by the Tsar with rights and privileges that no serfs and perhaps a third of the non-noble non-serf Christians did not have. Jews responded by getting even richer and investing fortunes in revolution.

    We are on an extended vacation with family in the southern and central Philippines, and by far most people we talk to, if they have any opinion, like Trump a lot. This includes a medical doctor, several lawyers, nurses working in the phils and the USA and Canada, caregivers, and a host of people with much less formal education and much lower wages and standard of living, alike.

    Outside the heavily Muslim part of the Phils, called the ARMM, it seems that regular Filipinos, from the poor up, tend to like Trump.

    High School girl logic – “everybody says …” so it must be true.

    Trump is indeed well brought up with easy good manners. He is also quite capable of bare-knuckled directness, as one would expect in an American president.

    The media-amplified anti-Trump consensus of second-rate bien pensants in Europe is a pathetic circle jerk. No matter what happens in the U.S., Europe will never get back to where it was five years ago.

    Although I only met Donald Trump briefly while he and I were with our families at the airport years ago, he struck me as a genuinely friendly and very sincere family man and nothing like the frightening caricature of your paranoid imagination.

    I’ll bet that when you hear him speak you somehow know he’s really thinking about doing to you what you’d do to him if you could, right?

    Be honest with yourself. If you met a real man like Donald Trump in person, it’d probably be a first for you and you’d be bowing and scraping with a stupid grin on your face like a member of the press corps.

    I was taken away with many others who bought into the lie that he might have seriously meant some good for the US and the world. However, that illusion has since been crushed.

    Yet still people sing his praises and defend him, even shortly after he has bowed to the zionists and made multi billion dollar deals with the Saudis, who even by the US analysis are a major source of wahhabism which is causing so much carnage around the globe. You cannot state with any substance that Trump seems a good sort when he makes such deals...or perhaps you support Wahhabism?

    Still engaging in your Putinist fantasies. The major Neo-Nazi movement in Europe is based in Moscow. You can spew your lies all you like, that simple fact will not change. Putin loves his Neo-Nazis and they are his major supporters, outside of the Oligarchs that are paying him.

    Ukraine has never been the problem of the US. Putin’s problems with Ukraine are self inflicted and a result of his Soviet imperialist revanchism.

    “But if you consider that only about 20% of the French voted for Macron in the first round and that he achieved that rather pitiful score even though he had the full support of the French establishment then you realize how unpopular that establishment really is with the French.”

    You’re pathetically misinformed, Saker (nothing new there). Macron did not get the full support of the French establishment until it was down to Macron vs Le Pen. I can understand your lies about Russia, but at least get stuff right when it’s available in completely open sources.

    “Ukraine: poor, corrupt, lead by hypocritical ideologues totally detached from reality and, most importantly, totally fixated on imaginary threats.”

    Good to see you think Russia doesn’t exist. Your description of Ukraine absolutely applies to Putinist Russia.

    “In this world got (sic) mad, only the Russians are patiently trying to convince their western partners to return to some semblance of sanity.”

    Assuming Putin is trying to get people to “return to some semblance of sanity” it would help his credibility if he starting exhibiting some sanity. Of course, the corruption he is a part of doesn’t help his credibility a bit.

    “One senior US official, James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence, even thinks that Russians are “almost genetically driven to co-opt, penetrate, gain favor, whatever, which is a typical Russian technique” to subvert democracy (I can’t decide if he sounds more like a Nazi racist or a clown… probably a mix of both). As I said, the Russians are mostly laughing at it all, but just to make darn sure things don’t turn ugly, they are also re-creating their famous “Shock Armies” (including at least one Tank Army) and doubling the size of the Russian Airborne Forces bringing them to 72,000 soldiers and generally preparing for World War 3.”

    This is hilarious. Putin is having to cut back his Soviet revanchist ambitions because he doesn’t have the money for them. Pensions are already being shorted, with many not getting them at all, and has few foreign currency reserves left. He couldn’t prepare for World War 1, much less what he would face if he keeps going and ends up setting off a much larger conflagration.

    By the by, Clapper is no longer a “senior US official.” While Clapper may well be a fascist, Russians are natural fascists and have proven that time again by putting up Putin as the face of the country.

    Eurosissies? Eurodummies? the 'journalism' here is becoming increasingly puerile, perhaps aiming for a dumbed down audience as traffic has grown?

    "Trump is an impeccably courteous person"?

    The man has a global reputation of a human pig, a racist, a misogynist, a bigot...The more I see such outlandish and frankly bewildering statements on here, the more I begin to believe my own value of the site has been too quickly given and now appears misguided.

    I repeat, Trump has long ago persuaded the world that he is scum. Bush was bad enough, basically a special needs coke fiend. Yet he is one reason why the rest of the world understands how a man as sickeningly appalling as Trump could get into so called 'power'. This was not the media cleverly depicting him in a bad light, he has always behaved in the same way, always cultivated the same public image, many moons before running for president. It is not brainwashing or conditioning to find a nasty moron as putrid, it is natural to be sickened by sick souls. It is possible that the site has been co-opted, or was a tool designed to monitor and direct and feed a non mainstream audience who revel in their own arrogant assertion of exceptionalism?

    I am unsure as of yet as to why the author has gradually parted Trump and the US government from the anglozionist machine. When clearly, by every measure, that power structure owns the US government, decides its every major decision and as for Trump making any decisions that matter...indeed, alleged 'experts' are focusing on how he shakes hands with other 'leaders' rather focusing on the ins and outs of what the anglozionists have organised behind the scenes of $300bn moving from KSA to the banksters.

    Trump is no leader. The more he is assumed as much the less credibility a writer enjoys. The man is a laughing stock globally, despised, cringed at, as our the people who voted for him. Nothing has changed with US policy, because it is not decided by the US government. Hilary, Obama, Trump, whoever...they are Punch and Judy to draw attention, to nourish the fable of democracy, to provide a human shape to inhuman power...

    By focusing on the totem with strings attached, the real show is missed...

    There are a good many things that can be said about Trump, but your ‘description” of the man is simply idiotic. Of course the ‘world” hates Trump. He’s in the process of showing the world what the Federal Government is supposed to be doing – putting the US first. All the rest is simply one rant after another because they aren’t able to get their way anymore.

    Saker has serious credibility problems, but Trump is the least of those. By far. You, on the other hand have no such problem as you have no credibility to question. You’re simply another with Trump Derangement Syndrome.

    You have similar problem with Bush.

    This is a man who played with children as his own country was attacked. A man who told the world that Saddam killed Mandela, when old man Nelson was still very much alive. A man who could barely string a sentence together and needed no media assistance to appear as a maniacal cretin.

    By putting the US first, I assume you mean putting Israel and KSA first? As that is the reality...

    We are on an extended vacation with family in the southern and central Philippines, and by far most people we talk to, if they have any opinion, like Trump a lot. This includes a medical doctor, several lawyers, nurses working in the phils and the USA and Canada, caregivers, and a host of people with much less formal education and much lower wages and standard of living, alike.

    Outside the heavily Muslim part of the Phils, called the ARMM, it seems that regular Filipinos, from the poor up, tend to like Trump.

    NonMuslims in and from India like the guy, too, in our experience.

    Well the thing about morons like Johan Nagel is that if their captured left-wing media tell them “the entire world hates Trump,” then it must be so. “The entire world” constituting the usual cucked Eurotrash who are busily making their continent an unspeakable hellhole while lecturing everyone else on how they have to be more like them. The day we can be rid of Western Europe and people like Johan Nagel is the day we can truly declare our independence. It will make July 4 look like peanuts, as Trump would say.

    can we also argue that Americanism is an ideology of peace, therefore American war-making, invasions, and imperialism are not American.

    Surreal.

    And communism is an ideology of justice, so Stalinist Gulag was not communist.

    Trump is indeed well brought up with easy good manners. He is also quite capable of bare-knuckled directness, as one would expect in an American president.

    The media-amplified anti-Trump consensus of second-rate bien pensants in Europe is a pathetic circle jerk. No matter what happens in the U.S., Europe will never get back to where it was five years ago.

    Arguably, Trump "kicks ass" by refusing to go full Hillary in Syria and also managing to be still branded as a "Russian spy" by Deep State and the D Party. The brief period of praise he got from the usual suspects after the Syrian strike was very telling, if not surprising. They were obviously expecting a big follow-up and it never came.

    Your critique of Saker's evaluation of Trump is basically grounded deeply from within the matrix, whose prisoner you seem to be. Yes, Trump is widely painted to be "a laughing stock globally, despised, cringed at, as are the people who voted for him" but no, that is the view that the mass media has been dishing out. It is not true, simply not true, even though many have swallowed it along with a whole load of marbles. You are basically paraphrasing Clinton when you jeer "the people who voted for him". Yes, these "despicable folk" did vote Trump into power, and yes they might well do so again. You do not seem to understand the processes at work here: part democracy, part a revolt of the people sickened by the one-sided narrative propagated in the media.

    I’m loosely interested in how the babble you spout, from your own ‘matrix’ explains my long term support for Putin? For Assad? For gaddaffi?

    How does that fit your lame stereotyping, which you regurgitate after been spoon Fed by your own brain washing machine.?

    Kindly explain. As I have been writing of my support for those leaders for many moons indeed….and believe that in itself instantly makes your condemnation appallingly misguided.

    Although I only met Donald Trump briefly while he and I were with our families at the airport years ago, he struck me as a genuinely friendly and very sincere family man and nothing like the frightening caricature of your paranoid imagination.

    I'll bet that when you hear him speak you somehow know he's really thinking about doing to you what you'd do to him if you could, right?

    Be honest with yourself. If you met a real man like Donald Trump in person, it'd probably be a first for you and you'd be bowing and scraping with a stupid grin on your face like a member of the press corps.

Re KSA, who can imagine what would replace the current terrible regime? Likely something as bad or worse. Hillary's big adventure in Libya did not turn out well.

    The man has a global reputation of a human pig, a racist, a misogynist, a bigot…

    Trump is no leader. The more he is assumed as much the less credibility a writer enjoys. The man is a laughing stock globally, despised, cringed at, as our the people who voted for him.
     
    There are a good many things that can be said about Trump, but your 'description” of the man is simply idiotic. Of course the 'world” hates Trump. He's in the process of showing the world what the Federal Government is supposed to be doing – putting the US first. All the rest is simply one rant after another because they aren't able to get their way anymore.

    Saker has serious credibility problems, but Trump is the least of those. By far. You, on the other hand have no such problem as you have no credibility to question. You're simply another with Trump Derangement Syndrome.

    You have similar problem with Bush.

    A similar problem with Bush?

    This is a man who played with children as his own country was attacked. A man who told the world that Saddam killed Mandela, when old man Nelson was still very much alive. A man who could barely string a sentence together and needed no media assistance to appear as a maniacal cretin.

    By putting the US first, I assume you mean putting Israel and KSA first? As that is the reality…

    Eurosissies? Eurodummies? the 'journalism' here is becoming increasingly puerile, perhaps aiming for a dumbed down audience as traffic has grown?

    "Trump is an impeccably courteous person"?

    The man has a global reputation of a human pig, a racist, a misogynist, a bigot...The more I see such outlandish and frankly bewildering statements on here, the more I begin to believe my own value of the site has been too quickly given and now appears misguided.

    I repeat, Trump has long ago persuaded the world that he is scum. Bush was bad enough, basically a special needs coke fiend. Yet he is one reason why the rest of the world understands how a man as sickeningly appalling as Trump could get into so called 'power'. This was not the media cleverly depicting him in a bad light, he has always behaved in the same way, always cultivated the same public image, many moons before running for president. It is not brainwashing or conditioning to find a nasty moron as putrid, it is natural to be sickened by sick souls. It is possible that the site has been co-opted, or was a tool designed to monitor and direct and feed a non mainstream audience who revel in their own arrogant assertion of exceptionalism?

    I am unsure as of yet as to why the author has gradually parted Trump and the US government from the anglozionist machine. When clearly, by every measure, that power structure owns the US government, decides its every major decision and as for Trump making any decisions that matter...indeed, alleged 'experts' are focusing on how he shakes hands with other 'leaders' rather focusing on the ins and outs of what the anglozionists have organised behind the scenes of $300bn moving from KSA to the banksters.

    Trump is no leader. The more he is assumed as much the less credibility a writer enjoys. The man is a laughing stock globally, despised, cringed at, as our the people who voted for him. Nothing has changed with US policy, because it is not decided by the US government. Hilary, Obama, Trump, whoever...they are Punch and Judy to draw attention, to nourish the fable of democracy, to provide a human shape to inhuman power...

    By focusing on the totem with strings attached, the real show is missed...

    You write like you get your income from the CIA. Of course we all now know this to be a well-documented tradition that dates back to the 1950s. Trump repeatedly called NATO “obsolete” during the campaign ,but was ultimately forced to back off due to the ridiculously open coup threats and the howling of the journalistic hyenas controlled by Deep State-MIC. Nevertheless, his performance on his European tour shows he has not entirely given up. Oh, and no one should miss that you are implicitly endorsing (by refusing to mention it) the insane nonstop campaign of Russophobia being carried out by the D’s and the major organs of “Cathedral” propaganda. These people make the late Joseph McCarthy look like the epitome of restraint, circumspection and decency.

    My disgust with Trump, my unsurprised horror at his exact same relations with the zionists, the deep state, the KSA, does not make me a fan of Russophobia, does not make me a left wing 'snowflake', does not make me 'part of the matrix'...for these allegations fall firmly flat and hollow when my own regularly shared output and stance is taken into account.

    So how does this work? Do others now say I am a fake supporter of comrade Vlad? That my support for Assad, for Hizbollah, for Iran, for former comrade Muammar, Morales, the latin bear Hugo...that all of this is merely fluff? or an hint of an eye opened beyond the 'matrix' which these same folk exist out of, and can mock those stuck within?

    Trump kicks ass? Whose ads has he kicked? He has blown up some old planes in Syria after warning Russia bad Syria beforehand, lied to the American people and global population,had his own semblance of allies removed or deballed...is mocked by his enemies, hated by the majority of the world's population. Odd idea of 'kicking ass'.

    Arguably, Trump “kicks ass” by refusing to go full Hillary in Syria and also managing to be still branded as a “Russian spy” by Deep State and the D Party. The brief period of praise he got from the usual suspects after the Syrian strike was very telling, if not surprising. They were obviously expecting a big follow-up and it never came.

[…] If there is one thing Putin and Trump would seem to share, aside from their supposed ‘bromance’ which rests on the foundation of having never met face to face, it would appear to be contempt for the pretense of a strong and independent European Union which is in reality a hollow transnational shell. By using the bully pulpit of the presidency to berate NATO’s leading states for failing to carry their weight within the alliance’s funding — leaving that job to Uncle Sam — The Donald has exposed the globalist pretense of NATO as an alliance of sovereign nations rather than a cover for the Anglo-American empire.

    [Gregory] Bateson believed that the mounting ecological and social crisis could only be overcome through a shift in human consciousness from the notion of a ‘skin encapsulated ego’ to the notion of a ‘relational self’. To him this larger conception of self is fundamentally interconnected with a larger mind that manifests through the process of life itself. Bateson wrote: “The individual nexus of pathways which I call ‘me’ is no longer so precious because that nexus is only part of a larger mind.”11 Albert Einstein tried to express the same realisation when he wrote:


    “A human being is part of the whole, called by us the universe. A part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. The delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affections for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
     

     
    To answer the question, I think it gives Russian women opportunities that will mitigate against Russians widening their circle of compassion and thus enhancing global cooperation.and technological progress. It's already observable that the highest quality Russian women increasingly go West for husbands.

    Don't give Trump too much credit. After hearing his campaign rhetoric, I thought one of this first moves would be to end the ERI, a recently created $3 billion annual American military slush fund to add bases and equipment stores in Europe. Check out this Dept of Defense press release this week...

    "The Defense Department's fiscal year 2018 budget request includes nearly $4.8 billion for the European Reassurance Initiative to enhance deterrence and defense and improve the readiness of forces in Europe, the U.S. European Command director of strategy, plans and policy said today. Air Force Maj. Gen. David W. Allvin held a telephone briefing with reporters, speaking from Eucom headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany.

    ERI funding for next fiscal year is up $1.4 billion over fiscal 2017, he said, noting that the funding increase will support the deterrence of future Russian aggression and malign influence through increased joint air, sea and land force responsiveness and expanded interoperability with combined multinational forces. 'This is one of our nation's commitments to Europe, and it demonstrates our strong dedication to the trans-Atlantic bond and the defense of our allies,' Allvin said."

    As a long-time salesman, Trump isn’t particularly interested in deep-sixing our own defense companies. That will only depress our own economy.

    You know the patriarchical system of war that Trump and Putin are conserving was originated by the Bronge Age Ukrainonazis known as Yamnaya. They exterminated everone in north Europe. Though it may be a co-incidence, Gregory Bateson, the most advanced Western thinker so far was remarkably y close to the physical type of the Bell Beaker/ Yamnaya. He said “history is that nightmare from which there is no awakening.”

    Bateson identified cybernetics as the other significant event of the 20th century:
    Cybernetics is, at any rate, a contribution to change–not simply a change in attitude, but even a change in the understanding of what attitude is.
    Bateson was hopeful that cybernetics might make people more able to change the rules in such ways to break the cycle of violence stemming from Versailles which he likened to the house of Atreus in Greek tragedy. But he was not a cyber-Utopian, rather he was sure that cybernetics held dangers of its own. http://bazungubucks.blogspot.co.uk/2010/12/gregory-bateson.html

    Wiener died in 1964 and did his work during the World Wars and Cold War, the most intense period of technological warfare in history. War doesn't narrow research; it disciplines it. In periods of peace, politics takes over and things like religion and PC take over. There's less discipline and things start to deviate from actual science and research and there's a focus on things like how many women and minorities are being promoted. The threat of nuclear tipped ICBMs slamming into Washington, D.C. concentrates the mind wonderfully. The proverbial Sword of Damocles. Large, bureaucratic, politicized corporations like Google aren't immune.

    Those same odds suggest that alien life is not as improbable as you think. The Fermi paradox was conceived before we started discovering billions of galaxies and planets on an almost daily basis. You remind me of the economist who refuses to believe that there's a $20 bill on the sidewalk, because if there were, it would have been picked up already.

    Well almost every single thinker and scientist in the world since HG Wells has agreed about the danger rival nation states pose to the future of humankind, and nuclear weapons certainly added weight to their arguments, but the idea that there are extant aliens civilizations anywhere in the Universe is not widely held by experts who are aware that we can detect signs of it. EG Professor Brian Cox

    Cox said: “One solution to the Fermi paradox is that it is not possible to run a world that has the power to destroy itself and that needs global collaborative solutions to prevent that.” [...] “It may be that the growth of science and engineering inevitably outstrips the development of political expertise, leading to disaster. We could be approaching that position.”
     
    The Prof's views are received wisdom, and not to be sniffed at for he and his colleagues well aware of our ability to detect tell tale signals that would surely be zipping through space if intelligent life was out there.

    THE mystery signals led to speculation that they could be the first hint of an advanced alien civilisation. Now scientists have traced the origin of the waves to a dwarf galaxy more than three billion light years from Earth where a powerful neutron star called a magnetar could have formed.
     
    It's possible the astrophysicists have missed a signal, or that hyper-subtle aliens are taking the piss, but in all truth, I (and more persuasively, Cox and company) very much doubt it.

    Andreas Wagner suggests that inviolably prolix networks will act as a warp drive to invention. Even if it happens very fast, this Singularity, myriad previous intelligent denizens of the universe must have had the idea that politics is the problem occur to them beforehand, yet none got past the Great Filter, which is almost upon us. humanity's progress to the tomb will be faster than one might tink as the secrets of biological innovations may be mimicable by artificial leaning per digital circuit networks and the US may be capable of the breakthrough be itself.

    Where I am (AFAIK) on my own is in thinking that when humankind is functioning without rivalry-motivated research, there will be much faster progress to the Singularity, which will instantly bounce humanity, and its technology, into extinction. I still feel the American state worried about the Russians will concentrate resources less productively from the point of view of rapid progress toward the singularity than Google would. The key is for the state to tax Google ect so they don't have the silly money available for such a blue sky project. America needs a limited enemy to tax for defence, and the intellectually hibernating Bear fits the bill. They cannot build a car that any wealthy Russian would purchase, so there will not be much of an impetus to pure science promotion (mathematics ect) by the American state in a rivalry with Russia.

    Look at the Moscow theater, the elite force rescuers gassed hundreds of people, killing an undisclosed but surely large number. In the Beslan school siege most of the hostages, including many girls raped by the terrorists, were shot dead through the windows of the cafeteria by trigger happy Russian special force troops. And then they used tanks and flamethrowers! As Ellis says in Brute Force, Russians not only use a sledgehammer to crack a nut, they think the cracking of nuts is what sledge-hammers are designed to do.

    Don't worry about nukes, the superpower spending on very expensive conventional weapons shows that no nuclear power actually dares rely on the threat of an incredible action.

    Wiener died in 1964 and did his work during the World Wars and Cold War, the most intense period of technological warfare in history. War doesn't narrow research; it disciplines it. In periods of peace, politics takes over and things like religion and PC take over. There's less discipline and things start to deviate from actual science and research and there's a focus on things like how many women and minorities are being promoted. The threat of nuclear tipped ICBMs slamming into Washington, D.C. concentrates the mind wonderfully. The proverbial Sword of Damocles. Large, bureaucratic, politicized corporations like Google aren't immune.

    Those same odds suggest that alien life is not as improbable as you think. The Fermi paradox was conceived before we started discovering billions of galaxies and planets on an almost daily basis. You remind me of the economist who refuses to believe that there's a $20 bill on the sidewalk, because if there were, it would have been picked up already.

  91. Perfect,

    go out you US suckers nobody needs. With your McDonalds culture and your Hollywood stupidity, your never winning a war policy that makes so much trouble in the world.

    Your ohhh so nobel PissPrice winners and your media dictatorship, your killing fields all over the world, your depletet uranium and faked morality.

    Your not a police man, your a hit man. Nobody needs the dictators you installed, the corrupt regimes you financed and the worthless $notes you spread.

    Germany will be a better place if the stupid Merkel (obviously an former STASI Agent you turned to your interests) gets what she deserves.

    Go. Asap. We buy our needs from Russia, negotiate with china and come to peace, without you.
