Almost one year ago the United States Congress (with only a handful of “nay” votes) adopted new and severe sanctions against Russia for its supposed attempt to influence and interfere in the 2016 national elections. Included in that legislation was a provision—specifically placed there by Russophobe Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC)—that President Trump cannot alter or lift any of the sanctions without future Congressional approbation.

The government of Vladimir Putin, in response to this provocation, announced that the American diplomatic presence in Russia would be reduced by 755 persons, a drastic move by any standards. But we cannot say it was unexpected—or undeserved.

That sanctions vote was fascinating as it illustrated during the first year of the contentious Trump presidency a rare point of political unity between the socialist Left, the Democrats and the mainstream media—formerly noted for their “soft” and favorable attitude to the old and unloved Soviet Communist Russian regime—and the conservative/GOP mainstream, dominated by the Neoconservatives. Of course, perspectives and approaches to the question differ, whether it was the Trump campaign that was colluding with Moscow, or if it was Hillary and the Clinton Foundation that had collaborated in some way, but their target remained the same: that man in the Kremlin and the country he governs.

One thing was clear: the result of the 2016 presidential election had the most unheard of and remarkable result in recent American political history: a de facto alliance of these supposedly antipodal political forces. And what we have witnessed is a phalanx of the pseudo-Right Neocons and the formerly pro-Soviet Left linked together, competing to see who could be more “anti” and who could come up with the more far-fetched Russia conspiracy theories, and—as with the 2017 sanctions—the latest unwarranted, over the top legislation.

Consider the recent—but largely unreported—formation of an umbrella group, the Renew Democracy Initiative (RDI), with the goal of “uni[ting] the center-left and the center-right.” Its leaders include former John McCain foreign policy advisor Max Boot, The Washington Post’s Anne Appelbaum, Never Trumper Bill Kristol, former chess wizard Gary Kasparov, and Richard Hurwitz of Council on Foreign Relations. [See “Neocons & Russiagaters Unite!,” April 27, 2018] RDI’s manifesto calls for “fresh thinking” and urges “the best minds from different countries to come together for both broad and discrete projects in the service of liberty and democracy in the West and beyond…. Liberal democracy is in crisis around the world, besieged by authoritarianism, nationalism, and other illiberal forces. Far-right parties are gaining traction in Europe, Vladimir Putin tightens his grip on Russia and undermines democracy abroad, and America struggles with poisonous threats from the right and left.”

Or, recall those on-camera Fox News Russia experts—think here of General Jack Keane or the unhinged Colonel Ralph Peters who literally foamed at the mouth when talking about Putin, calling him “the new Hitler,” and who asserted that Putin had committed “worse crimes” than the German dictator. (Peters is so anti-Russian that he finally left the Fox News network in March 2018)

When Tucker Carlson on his prime time program last July 11, 2017, demanded that Peters provide facts and figures for his accusations, Peters immediately exploded and implied that program host Carlson was a “Hitler apologist.” It was a classic argument and instance of reductio ad Hitlerum.

Of course, such examples aren’t rare in the establishment “conservative movement” media. Pick up any issue of National Review or The Weekly Standard or listen to the Glenn Beck radio program and you can find the same hysteria, largely laced with faked quotes or disinformation (e.g., “Putin wants to re-establish the Soviet Union” or “Putin was head of the KGB” or “Putin has had his enemies assassinated,” and so on, ad nauseum).

Indeed, another ploy by Neocon pundits (and Congress) has been to parade Bill Browder, the grandson of American Communist Party boss Earl Browder, as a star witness to President Putin’s nefarious dealings. Of course, it should be noted that Browder fils lost big time financially in his manipulations in Russia, as investigative journalists Philip Giraldi and Robert Parry have documented, and he is engaged in a vicious personal vendetta against Vladimir Putin.

For the Neoconservative leaders of what passes for “conservatism” these days, it is as if nothing has changed since 1991, since the ignominious fall of Communism. It’s even arguable that their hostility to Moscow has increased since then.

Let me suggest several reasons for this: First, many of the more prominent Neoconservatives descend from Russian Jews from the Pale of Settlement, whose memories go back to the pre-Communist days of persecution and pogroms under the Tsars. They originally welcomed Lenin and the Communist regime as liberators and formed some of its staunchest supporters and apparatchiks in the regime of terror that followed (especially in the Cheka and KGB) until Josef Stalin unleashed a wave of anti-semitism after World War II. [See the partially translated excerpts from Solzhenitsyn’s Two Hundred Years Together at: https://200yearstogether.wordpress.com , and the commentary]

Putin, despite his strong support from native Russian Jews and from the Moscow Rabbinate, is a Russian nationalist and fervent supporter of the traditionalist Russian Orthodox Church, and those two factors bring up painful memories of the “bad old days” of discrimination and Jewish persecution for the Neocons.

A prime example of this comes in a recent volume authored by prominent Neocon journalist and homosexual activist (yes, the two traits often seem to go together), James Kirchick: The End of Europe: Dictators, Demagogues, and the Coming Dark Age, 2017). In his jumble of Neocon ideology and prejudice, Kirchick evaluates what for him seems to be happening ominously in Europe. He is deeply fearful of the efforts to “close borders” against Muslim immigrants from the Middle East. He blasts Marine Le Pen as a racist—and most likely a subtle “holocaust denier!”—and attacks the attempts in places like Hungary and Poland to reassert national traditions and Christian identity; for him these are nothing less than attempts to bring back “fascism.”

Russia comes in for perhaps his harshest criticism, and the reason is unmistakable: Russia seems to be returning to its older national and pre-Communist heritage, to its age-old Orthodox Christian faith. Russians are returning by the millions to the church and the “old-time” religion. For Kirchick this can only mean one thing: the triumph of bigotry, anti-semitism, and “extreme right wing” ideology, and the failure of what he terms “liberal democracy and equality” (including, he would no doubt include, feminism, same sex marriage, across-the-board equality, and all those other “conservative values”!).

Kirchick’s critique, shared by many of the leaders of the national Republican Party and dominating the pages of most establishment “conservative” publications and talk radio these days, joins him arm-in-arm with globalist George Soros in efforts to undermine the Russian state and its president…all in the name of “democracy” and “equality.” [See, “George Soros Aghast as Collapsing EU, while Russia Resurgent,” January 19, 2018]

But, just what kind of “democracy” and what kind of “equality” do Kirchick and Soros defend?

Beyond the ideological foundations for their hatred of nationalist Russia are economic considerations and the issue of who controls and manages the Russian economy: Wall Street and Bruxelles, or Russia, itself. Unlike the weak and pliant Boris Yeltsin, Putin the nationalist ended the strangle-hold of Russian industry, in particular control of Russia’s important energy sector, by those few international businessmen, the oligarchs (many of them Jewish), most of whom fled the country. That could not stand! How dare Russia—and its president—oppose the economic diktats of Bruxelles and Wall Street!

Lastly, we should add one more reason for hostility, and that is Russia’s remaining international presence, in particular, in Syria. It is very simple: you don’t go from being one of the world’s two “superpowers” to all of a sudden a second-rate, economically-handicapped “has been” without some remorse. As a patriot and nationalist President Putin has, understandably, attempted to reassert Russian prosperity and power—certainly, not as much or in the same manner as the old Communist leaders. But, from his reasonable point of view, the largest country in the world does have interests, and not just in what goes on in neighboring nations where millions of Russians (formerly within Russia) reside, but also with long-time allies such as Syria.

Is not this same criterion true for the United States and its dealings with its neighbors and allies?

More, for the past twenty-five years Russia has experienced the poisoned tip of Islamic terrorism, domestically, including the brutal war in Tchechnya in the Caucasus region and the horrid bombings in the heart of the country, Moscow. From the beginning of his tenure Putin has offered to cooperate with the United States in the fight against international Islamic terror, but each time it was the United States—us—who refused, including famously Paul Wolfowitz during the George W. Bush administration who replied to one such offer: “We don’t need your assistance or intel.” And thus, the revealing files on the Tsarnaev brothers (Boston bombing) were not received. But, as Neocon Charles Krauthammer once declared: “We live in a unipolar world today, and there is only ONE superpower, and that is the United States.” That attitude was not received with equanimity by post-Communist Russia, a Russia that has discovered its heritage and its traditions and has asked for partnership with the United States, and not the hysteria we have witnessed in the United States sweeping aside all rationality.

  2. Ralph Peters is one of the nuttiest neocons around, and Fox was smart to dump him. I recall an article long ago where he suggested that the US Govt. should address the drug addition problem in the USA by assassinating drug dealers on the streets in the USA.

    He lives off scraps from neocons by selling his soul for BS talking points and collects a monthly check from Uncle Sam after 20 years of sitting at a desk doing BS intel work, as I once did for a year. It seems he missed his chance at killing commies in Nam by touring Europe, as Fred Reed explained:

    Nothing new in the above article. That such people are elevated to the stature of cushy mainstream propping and ridicule by some non-mainstream others is a tell all sign on what’s wrong with the coverage.

    Regarding this excerpt:

    JRL promoted a recent Kirchick piece:

    http://russialist.org/newswatch-the-soviet-roots-of-invoking-fears-about-world-war-iii-brookings-james-kirchick/

    The rant of a coddled establishment chickenhawk, who is quite overrated, relative to the positions accorded to him (Nasty people don’t deserve kindness.)

    A suggestive dose of McCarthyism that simplistically references the Cold War period with present day realities, which include a subjectively inaccurate overview of what has transpired in Syria and Crimea. Put mildly, James Kirchick is quite ironic in his use of “lazy”.

  4. To me it is all quite simple.
    FDR’s aim was to rule the war with junior aides USSR, China and a smaller Britain.
    Stalin had other ideas.
    Even in 1946 FDR’s main backer, Baruch pleaded for a world government, a USA government, in my view.
    Deep State still tries to impose this world government.
    Despite Trump ‘America first’ we see a Bolton in the White House, as many see ‘the neocons are back’.
    Cannot see much difference between neocons and Deep State.
    The big mistake of the British empire was unwillingless to realise that it could no longer maintain the empire.
    This already began before 1914, when the two fleet standars became too expensive, the one fleet standard expressed the inability to maintain the empire.
    Obama was forcedto reduce the two war standard to one and half.
    What a half war accomplishes we see in Syria.
    Alas, seldom in history did reason rule.
    If it will in the present USA, I doubt it.

    Sanctions are always a prelude to war. Sanctions are in fact an act of war. Putin’s mistake was in thinking he could reason with the Neoconservatives. The Neocons are not guided by pragmatic or rational concerns. Of course, many are starting to think Putin was just “part of the show” all along, as evidenced by his recent capitulation to Netanyahu.

  8. The American diplomat, Bruce P Jackson, who is credited with expanding NATO, made a statement several years ago. He heavily criticized Putin, saying he was responsible for “the largest theft of Jewish property since the Nazis.”

    So there we can see a motive for hatred of Putin.

    The neocons are a collection of sick, murderous, fanatical supremacist ideologues who have turned the U.S. into the most despicable criminal regime on earth. Because of their control and influence over the U.S. imperial military/political assets, combined with their psychopathic mentality and ideology, these scumbags pose a clear threat to the entire world, but especially to Russia and Europe (and to the U.S. itself, of course). The irony in all of this is that, although these mostly Jewish bottom-feeders like to smear any foreign leader they’d like to demonize as “the new Hitler” etc., they themselves are more nefarious and dangerous to the planet than Hitler and his German Nazis ever were.

    Nothing will change until the major members of the neocon collective start getting individually singled out and receiving the harsh punishments they deserve.

    I wonder what jewish property Putin stole.
    In the USSR there was hardly any private property.
    What was stolen, sold for ridiculously low prices, was state property, to former USSR managers, and/or foreign ‘investors’.
    As far as I understand it, some crooks have been persecuted.
    Any foreigner who, after 1990, went to live in a former USSR state can explain it.
    Some did to me.
    Possibly Jackson is referring to how Putin threw out Soros, and his Open Society indoctrination organisation.
    Hungary just now also threw him out.
    Timmermans of the EU again threatened the E European nations, for refusing to let migrants enter.

    @jilles dykstra

    “Cannot see much difference between neocons and Deep State.”

    And that means that the US Deep State can NOT have a Jewish creation, because it existed a long time before 1948, a long time before 1939, a long time before the creation of the Federal Reserve.

    There is a reason that Neocons love Alexander Hamilton and Abraham Lincoln: the former was an apologist for the nascent American Deep State, and the latter its perfect tool right down to being ready and able to slaughter huge numbers of non-Elite whites so the then virtually 100% WASP-in-blood Elite Deep State could totally control the growing nation.

    The source of the American Deep State is the same as England’s Deep State: Oliver Cromwell’s deal with Jews, a deal granting Jews special rights and privileges and made precisely in order to have the money to wage total war to exterminate non-WASP white Christian cultures and identities.

    That is exactly what the Neocons are determined to continue, and they are correct whenever they assert that they are being loyal to the history and heritage of the Puritans and of Abraham Lincoln’s Republican Party and of the US in the Spanish-American War, World War 1 and World War 2.

    What is different about today’s Neocons and, say, the growing number of Jews with major voices among the British Deep State at the height of Victorianism is that now the original junior partner has become the acting partner, the dominant partner.

    But the original alliance is the same.

    You cannot separate the Neocon problem from the WASP problem. You cannot solve the Neocon problem without also solving the WASP problem.

  20. While there is some “hysteria” when it comes to Russia, there is also much truth out there, some of which the author is willing to write off as little more than conspiracy theories.

    It is passing strange that those who have strongly criticized Putin have ended up dead. Anytime one appears to be a serious threat to Putin’s position they end up dead. It is possible that Putin isn’t responsible, but given the numbers and the circumstances, it is likely he knows what is going on.

    While Putin was never head of the KGB, much of what he has been up to was learned form iron Felix’s organization. To say Putin is a KGB thug is far from being out of line.

    What he has done in Ukraine should make the man, and the country he heads, a pariah. Eastern Europe is right to be concerned. The fact that Putin has stated, rather pointedly, that the extent of the USSR is Russia makes the accusation of him being a Soviet revanchist appropriate as well.

    Much of what the author seeks to write off as hysteria, isn’t. That “hysteria” is a proper concern for what Putin is up to, and what he intends. Fortunately, Russia is too impoverished to all Putin to realize his neo-Tsarist empire. And in pursuing his self-aggrandizing path, he impoverishes his people even more.

  21. The business of the Zionist controlled U.S. gov is WAR and this has been the agenda since 1913 and the establishment of the Zionist FED and the Zionist IRS and thus began the WAR agenda and the American people were set up to pay for the Zionist created wars and the Zionist agenda of a Zionist NWO.

    Thus the Zionists need an enemy and have created enemies where none existed, the case in point being Russia and lesser created enemies the case in point being any given country in the Mideast that Israel and the Zionists wish to destroy. In the case of Russia the Zionists have the added incentive of trying to destroy a Christian country as Russia is now and historically has been Christian with the exception of the Satanist Zionist takeover of Russia in 1917 and the murder of some 60 million Russian people by the Satanist ie Zionist communists.

    The U.S. gov is under satanic Zionist control and proof of this is the fact that Israel and the Zionist controlled deep state did 911 and got away with and every thinking person knows this to be the truth, may GOD help we the people of America.

    Jake:

    While I defer to no one in my loathing and contempt for the WASPs of the Northeastern U.S., whose career of mischief began with the brutal war of conquest against my native South, I’d would like to point out what I see as some problems in your assigning to Oliver Cromwell to baleful title of WASP the first.

    To wit: “Oliver Cromwell’s deal with Jews, a deal granting Jews special rights and privileges.”

    This simply isn’t true. Menasseh ben Israel did indeed present a “Humble Address on Behalf of the Jewish Nation” to the Lord Protector and the Counsel of State in 1655. Readmission was opposed by most of the English people and of the Puritan pastorate. However, there was no Act of Parliament, proclamation by Cromwell or notice from the Council of State allowing readmittance. Some historians have “deduced” that Cromwell have Menasseh “verbal assurance that they’d be allowed it, but those are deductions and speculation and no more. As far as sa subsequent petition for Jews to be allowed to practice Judaism in their homes and have a burial place outside the City of London, Cromwell referred that to the Council of State, which took no action.

    Who did grant the Jews religious tolerance and naturalized a number of Jews by an Act of Parliament? Why, Charles II – after the Restoration.

    You wrote: “made precisely in order to have the money to wage total war to exterminate non-WASP white Christian cultures and identities.”

    I can only assume you are referring to the Cromwellian conquest of Ireland, which began in May 1649. I assume you’re aware that Ireland had been engulfed in a bloody and brutal civil war since 1641; indeed, one of the precipitating causes of the English Civil War was the matter of who would control the army raised to suppress the rebellion (Charles I or Parliament). Also as you know, England was swept by fear that Charles meant to bring an Irish army to England to suppress Parliament (and, indeed, there’s probably more evidence that this was the actual case than there is that Cromwell cut a deal with the Jews). At any rate, there is no one single shred of evidence or even contemporary speculation that the Cromwellian conquest was at the behest of the Jews. It should be instead regarded in the context of the 17th century wars of religion, rather than 21st century conspiracy theory. Cromwell ended the civil war and pacified Ireland – in a brutal fashion, of course, but probably less vicious than Wallenstein in Germany.

    Or are you referring to the Scots, crushed at Preston, Dunbar and Worcester? Again, the quarrel with the scots was over the matter of church governance, and the English unwillingness to impost the Presbyterian system on England. If Cromwell stood for anything, it was religious tolerance for the various sects that exploded after the Civil War; the sort of forced conformity demanded by the Scots displeased him (see the letters to Major Crawford in 1643).

    And while both the New Englanders and English are labeled “Puritan,” may I point out that the Puritan movement was a large one, with considerable variance. Cromwell favored tolerance and theologically tended toward a sort of univeralism (to judge by his pastors, eg Jeremiah Burroughs); I imagine that if he had gone to New England, he’d have been chased out along with Sarah Hutchinson and Roger Williams by the fanatical shits of Boston.

    Boston is the “urgrund” of the WASP plague; not Cromwell. And while there’s any number of things to fault him for, creation of the WASP was not one of them. In theological and existential terms, Cromwell and the New Model were probably closer to the Puritan “pioneers” of the Appalachian and Southern frontiers – many of whom were descended of troops planted in Ireland by Cromwell – and who of course made up the rank and file of the Confederate States Army.

    You might want to take a look at the history of the Unitarian movement. You’d find everything you need to support your dislike of the WASP plaque there; I certainly have.

    “talking about Putin, calling him “the new Hitler,” and who asserted that Putin had committed “worse crimes” than the German dictator.”

    Classic garbage in, garbage out.

    fact: Hitler and the Germans did not, could not have committed the crimes they are alleged to have committed.

    “we’ve often fantasized about drawing up an indictment against Adolf Hitler himself. And to put into that indictment the major charge: the Final Solution of the Jewish question in Europe, the physical annihilation of Jewry. And then it dawned upon us, what would we do? We didn’t have the evidence.”

    “Neoconservatives descend from Russian Jews from the Pale of Settlement, whose memories go back to the pre-Communist days of persecution and pogroms under the Tsars. They originally welcomed Lenin and the Communist regime as liberators and formed some of its staunchest supporters and apparatchiks in the regime of terror that followed (especially in the Cheka and KGB) until Josef Stalin unleashed a wave of anti-semitism after World War II.”

    There is no proof of these “pogroms” and the fake “wave of anti-semitism after World War II”.

  32. The umpteenth serving of the classic US hegemonist pro-Putin/anti-EU line. The distinction is thus not between those who favour the maintenance of US global hegemony and those who oppose it. It is whether Putin is still useful as a battering ram to destroy the EU precisely so as to maintain US global hegemony into the indefinite future. The most logical explanation of the known facts surrounding the Ukrainian coup is that Victoria Nuland was in cahoots with Putin. Behind Nuland, of course were the US neocons. The split came when Putin waded into the Syrian civil war on Assad’s side. By doing so he made himself a threat to Israel and, for the neocons, the whole point of maintaining US global hegemony is to prop up Israel. Logically, therefore, their priority became Putin’s defeat and removal. The other side of the US hegemonist camp, which seems to be motivated by something like hubris or a master race delusion, still believes that Putin can be used to break up the EU. That’s the position Mr Cathey is arguing.
    I don’t think Putin is still viable as an anti-EU battering ram. The American groups that have been financing far-right nationalism in Europe have got caught in the web of their own contradictions. On the one hand, they preach national identity and sovereignty to us but then, as Mr Cathey is doing here, they justify Putin’s refusal to respect Ukrainian sovereignty and the Ukrainian national identity. Secondly, European nationalism is essentially “anti-other”. That means that it is inherently anti-American, which makes newly nationalist Europe the inevitable enemy of US domination. It also means that anti-Semitism is inherent in European nationalism, which is probably what has Soros up in arms. The final contradiction is that, very often, the same people who preach nationalism at us in Europe preach white nationalism in the US. If white Americans are a single ethnic group and entitled to live in a single political entity, then we white Europeans must also be a single ethnic group and should also live in a single political entity (the EU, for example).
    I never cease to be amused at the way in which the various American anti-EU scams cut across each other and cancel each other out!

    “WASP” in the “USA” refers fairly specifically to the Protestants of New England and New York who as a result of the War of Northern Aggression attained complete power over the development of the American empire. Their interests were concentrated in banking, railroads, industry and so on. While descended from the Puritans of New England, most of them had lost any traditional religious fervor by, oh, 1700 or so and gradually moved into loopy, nonsensical ideologies like Transcendentalism, Unitarianism, the Social Gospel, and various other creation-fixing endeavors like temperance, abolitionist, progressivism and so on. To them can be attributed the Gnostic notion of the United States as God’s appointed righter of wrongs around the world, with quite coincidentally matched up with their commercial interests. On the whole about as nasty and horrible group of people that ever walked the earth; however. WASP does not include the white Anglo-Saxon Protestants of Appalachia, the Deep South, Texas and so on. The Bush family are WASPs. Robert E. Lee was not a WASP. Jake is correct to disdain them; he’s wrong in saying Cromwell was the archetype.

    As I looked through this list I realized that if the public were to deny its elected government authority to support its neocon capitalist, the entire economy would be forced to switch from Global to Domestic.. showering all kinds of benefits on the governed sheep. No wonder the government is so insistent: without globalism there is no neocon-ism, without neocon-ism open competition would flourish, the restrictions on human progress in copyrights and patents would disappear and prices would move from controlled levels to competitive levels.

    But I do not think the neocons are “ideologues”; unless lawless disregard for humanity in search of profit, is an ideology. I am not even sure they are tightly organized, they are not colonist, they are monopolist (meaning any profit potential (tangible or intangible) will soon belong to them or be within their control. They will write laws, or get nations to sanction, start wars, regime change, terrorize, whatever to advance and to protect their exclusive right to competition free profit making); you might call it ownership of all of the factors of production by whatever means is necessary. I look at them as capitalist, who have co-opted many different governments, who have forgone their humanity, who independently profiteer, interactively, and for a multitude of different reasons, to produce a common collective set of extremely effective outcomes.

  41. My favorite part of the Renew Democracy Initiative’s manifesto:

    10. The extremists share a disdain for the globalism on which modern prosperity is based. Whether they are far-left or far-right, they believe in top-down solutions to problems that can best be resolved through greater freedom, competition, openness and mobility. Both seek power without compromise or coalition and defer to the rule of law only when it strengthens their own position. These illiberal forces embrace divisive rhetoric that makes rational debate impossible. Indeed, they frequently reject established facts and scientific reasoning in favor of conspiracy theories and malicious myths. Liberal democracy must address the problems of those disadvantaged by economic change with practical programs grounded in fact and reason.

    Amazing! There are two parts to this. The “openness and mobility” is a nod towards their status as rootless kosmopolity who destroy civil society and local communities in favor of a permanent, mobile underclass. But they actually imply that globalism is bottom-up; that globalism is the result of liberty and the free market. Such balls, these people.

    Russia seems to be returning to its older national and pre-Communist heritage, to its age-old Orthodox Christian faith.

    more so even than any concern for Jewish supremacy or glorification of sodomy or all the other shibboleths oozing out of the gaping orifices of Jewish fudge packers like Kirchick, is a visceral, unearthly animosity (hatred) for the Western world and its (comparatively) beautiful, well-adjusted, happy and prosperous people.

    Indeed, it is the ‘happy’ part that drives them insane with stinging malice and seething, rancorous rage.

    I remember as a kid celebrating Christmas, and how the Jewish children I knew were not allowed. This is all part of the carefully constructed paradigm that the Jewish elite impose on their people to keep them resentful and envious. Eventually metastasizing into a deep-seated hatred.

    They want to see all those ruddy-cheeked Christians pay! for their pain during those terrible years.

    Like the boy who was picked last for sports or never ‘got the girl’, they develop a psychological imperium of wrath, which their religion bolsters in spades.

    That is why when ever they get the drop on the Gentiles (who tormented them with good-natured hails of ‘Merry Christmas!, which stung to their core, because all that love and happiness was not for them. ) – regardless of the obvious sincerity of the Christians. – [which made it even worse]

    Eventually it roils and burns in their ids like an acid. And they want revenge. And that’s why the Palestinians, and the Syrians and Lebanese are menaced day and night.

    That’s why the Russians and Ukrainians and Estonians and Poles, and so many others…

    suffered to monstrously under the cruel Jewish, Bolshevik yoke.

    It has nothing to do with fear over a re-ascendant Russia. Hardly. That’s laughable.

    Rather, the reason they can’t abide Russians going to church and thriving and prospering, is because it means the Russians have become happy again, and that drives them absolutely bonkers with murderous, Talmudic rage.

    @Parbes

    Good description of them. Basically I see all their anti Russian crap, as a revenge minded attitude so often seen from jews. They tried to overtake the largest nation, of mainly Whites and Christians, at least once prior to 1917 jewish revolt against Russia. That was I believe in 1905, it ended when the $$$ ended. But with another better funded, by usa and german fellow jew banksters, attempt in 1917.

    Those Bolshevik jews took over Russia first, then every eastern nation which also was mainly a White and Christian peoples nation’s. They did so basically by mass Murdering aprox 1/2 of orig populations in those nations. And now 100 years later, after Russian soviet commies has crashed, and a huge return to prior Christian ways etc, is going gangbusters……Due to Bolsheviks and jews for the most part getting that Big Boot Out jews are so famous for.

    So now here in America we have inherited most of those Children and especially Grand Kid jew commies of the Orig 100 years ago Russian Bolshevik butchers, torturers, and mass murderous bastards. And besides infiltrated into All what matters in usa society and govnt and culture, they also have as a “side agenda” of sorts a massive huge Lusting for typical jewish blood thirsty revenge upon Russia and its Christian Whites,and of course its leader Putin. Those jews had Russia in palm of hand, then totally Lost it. They began with around 8.5 to maybe 10-million jews in Russia/Poland soviet and today have around less than 27o,ooo total jews within Russia iirc.

    Likely it was Putin more than all other issues or reasons those, mostly jewish swindlers, finally were also Booted Out and their scammed assets from their Raping of Russia resources etc Taken away from them…Being such mamon/money worshipers they are also so famous for, no other thing would so piss them scamming jews off eh.

    I also believe that after the jewish 1917 revolt in Russia, when top control jews there with plans to use control of Russia as largest nation on earth, to gain their foamed at mouth lust of a JWO control made reality. That it finally dawned on them that in order to Rule as a JWO one world govnt of jewry Vs all gentile others, they could never do so without a huge Navy like usa has.

    You must have Navy ships to Carry Jet fighter planes To distant areas you wish to rule over, because most other nations wont simply agree to being jew-ruled with a JWO clan of fanatical jewry. Ergo you need also Ocean Waters, warm waters to Park said ships and navigate those waters to get to those other reluctant nations. Russia failed for such scheme plans for jewry.

    So since so many of the tribe were in usa already….Just join fellow tribe in usa, and turn America and its military etc into a huge Tool of international jewry so to complete jwo plans that Russia didn’t fulfill.

    And both the agenda of jewish revenge, as well as their desired jwo plans probably play an equal part within those evil nasty minds that they are also so famous for having.

    And where, dear sir, can we find any “religious fervor” in the likes of that beau ideal of the Southern antebellum statesman, John C. Calhoun? Calhoun began life as a Calvinist (a Presbyterian) and ended it as a kind of Unitarian. This is almost the exact trajectory as the religious life of the Boston Yankee culture. The Old Nullificator was backcountry Scotch-Irish – as opposed to WASP – but Unitarian crap is Unitarian crap no matter where it exists.

    Calhoun was, of course, a giant among those of the 1830s and ’40s who pushed the South from the 18th century American conception of slavery – as something that should be contained until its eventual death – to a new conception that exclaimed, vigorously, that slavery was a legitimate part of the American way of life. No, no. I cannot abide this poison. If you all want to condemn Hamilton and Sumner and all, go ahead. I’ll agree. But when Lincoln – that flawed man – saw the original sin of the American republic as the protection of slavery, he was right. And he was neither fanatical nor alone in his view. To this day, we tend to conflate Lincoln and the anti-slavery bloc with the radical Republican abolitionist bloc. This is unfair.

    General Meade, the victor of Gettysburg, was condemned by the radical Republicans in Congress because of their hatred for Lincoln. Some unity there.

    The Anti-Federalist Marylander Luther Martin was right to criticize the powerful framers for allowing the slavery problem to go on, for enshrining it in the Constitution. Too many antebellum Southern elites decided that the likes of Martin were wrong.

    You will find few “Northerners” more amenable to the South than me. I live only a few miles north of the Mason-Dixon. I count Confederate soldiers among my kin. One was even born in Pennsylvania, and fought in his own hometown during Lee’s invasion.

    But no one forced the state of South Carolina to fire at Fort Sumter. No one in the North forced the Southern elites to accept a conception of black slavery as a “positive good” (i.e. James Henry Hammond). The idea of a “War of Northern Aggression” is convenient and cute, but I live near Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. You may not have heard of its burning, but I have. And it attests to the truth, which is that if the South had the numbers the North had, then it would have done what you all so hate Sherman and Custer for doing in Georgia and the Shenandoah: burn, burn, burn. Perhaps there were just as many hell-fire and brimstone types in the South as there were in Boston.

The US elites (neocons are just one type of servants they hired) are mad that the world refuses to be unipolar. Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, and many lesser countries, arouse “righteous indignation” of the robbers because they refuse to let themselves be looted and bossed by the US elites. All sorts of thieves joined the choir: Jewish and gentile, “right” and “left”, military and civilian, the only common denominator being that they stole a lot and resent being thwarted from stealing even more. Moreover, the almighty dollar is about to be exposed as a king with no clothes by various countries switching the trade to their own currencies, undermining the Ponzi schemes of the US dollar and US government debt. The hysterical US foreign policy in the last 10-15 years, with its mindless suicidal aggressiveness, is in fact death throes of an Empire that resents going down the drain, like all dominant Empires before it, but cannot do anything about inevitable course of history.

    In every political question we should remember to look past grandiose abstractions and see the operative gut loyalties, both our own and those of the competing sides. What is going on with Russia is simply Jewish mania to prevent Russia from being Russian and keep it under Jewish or surrogate rule. Similarly, NATO and the EU are now just enforcers of political correctness. The Slavs and other illiberal peoples of central and eastern Europe are to be re-subjugated now that Communism is not there to persecute the priests and re-educate the sexists. The author, in citing ancient persecutions of Jews to excuse the machinations of current Jews, attempts to meet his critic half-way. Some day perhaps we will be able to state the truth without the dance of apology.

For example, several Russian diplomat have died suddenly and prematurely in various countries – out UN representative Churkin would be the prime example.

    He, meaning Putin, hasn’t done anything in Ukraine – the West did. The West organized and supported a coup bringing to the power a super-corrupt illegitimate “government” that relies on armed neo-Nazi groups for the control of the county. Now Ukraine is a failed state with the dominant neo-Nazi ideology, nonexistent economy, impoverished and fleeing population and repressive political system, not to mention a civil war. All Putin did was to resist this development as much as possible, and I do not believe he should be blamed for that.

    –> sorry, I don’t think “original sin” is attributable to nations. History is a bloodbath, and always will be, and the whole notion that slavery is some sort of “sin” demanding atonement is quite ridiculous. That’s the sort of gnosticism practiced by the Bostonians that played sure a huge part in causing the War of Nort.. er. War for Southern Independence. Far as antebellum slavery itself, might I recommend the work of Genovese and Fogelberg on the character of American slavery? A review of how exactly the victorious Yankees and their Republican bosses provided for the liberated slaves after Appomattox is enlightening.

    Elites are robbing Americans and foreigners alike. In fact, the US population gets some crumbs off elites’ table, and enjoys higher living standards than it would have in fair global competition.
    The overall educational level and the level of awareness of what’s going on in the world in the US is dismal. Elites arranged that by maintaining pathetic education system and spreading lies via MSM; ignorant sheep are more likely to obey, and to approve of persecution of those “black sheep” who are less ignorant and don’t buy the lies of the MSM. Did we see any protests against “Patriot Act” that trampled the very foundations of our Constitution? Sheep don’t protest, they just follow the leader.

    However, we have to remember that clueless ignoramus in the US gets 5-10 times more than similarly clueless ignoramus in China or India. Bush junior was genuinely dumb, but would he become US President without his family’s ill-gotten riches, or without his ex-CIA chief daddy becoming the President first? Of course not, most morons in the US never fly that high. The only reason for his “success” is the fact that he was born into an elite family.

    As far as Jews are concerned, this appears to be yet another red herring, like Russia-bashing. Are gentile Koch brothers or Walton family any better than the worst Jews in the US? They are just as selfish, greedy, and repulsive as George Soros or Sheldon Adelson.

    Peters has been hardcore anti-Russian and anti-Serb. His views are quite collapsible. Regarding one of his mass media appearances

    https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2017/07/17/dnc-kiev-regime-collusion-isnt-americas-best-interests.html

    Last week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson, received well deserved praise for taking to task the permeating anti-Russian biases. The highlight of Carlson’s exchanges was his encounter with Ralph Peters, who for years has spouted grossly inaccurate propaganda against Russia. Antiwar.com and Russia Insider, are among the counter-establishment English language venues commenting on the Carlson-Peters discussion. The US foreign policy establishment realist leaning National Interest carried a lengthy piece on Carlson’s challenge to the neocon/neolib foreign policy perceptions. For the record, more can and should be said in reply to Peter’s comments.

    Peters falsely claims that Russia hasn’t made a concerted effort in confronting ISIS. In one of his more accurate moments, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said that the ISIS claimed shoot down of a Russian civilian airliner over Egypt, was in response to Russia’s war against ISIS. You’ve to be either a liar or clueless to not recognize why Russia has actively opposed ISIS. The latter sees Russia as an enemy, while having a good number of individuals with roots in Russia and some other parts of the former USSR.

    Peters’ characterization of Russia targeting civilian areas is disingenuous. Over the years, the matter of collateral damage is something periodically brought up in response to those killed by US and Israeli military actions.

    Peters offers no proof to his suspect claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin kills journalists. There’re numerous anti-Putin advocates alive and well in Russia. That country does have a violence problem. Recall what the US was like in the 1960s thru early 1970′s. For that matter, Bernie Sanders isn’t blamed for the pro-Sanders person who attempted to kill Republican lawmakers.

    Given the situations concerning Kosovo and northern Cyprus, Peters is being a flat out hypocrite regarding Crimea. Donbass is a civil conflict involving some Russian support for the rebels, who’re overwhelmingly from the territory of the former Ukrainian SSR. These individuals have a realistic basis to oppose the Kiev based regimes that came after the overthrow of a democratically elected Ukrainian president.

    During the American Revolution, most of the pro-British fighters were said to be colonists already based in America. Furthermore, the American revolutionaries received significant support from France. With these factors in mind, the Donbass rebels don’t seem less legit than the American revolutionaries.

    Some Kiev regime elements positively reference the 1995 Croat ethnic cleansing of Krajina Serbs (known as Operation Storm) as a solution for ending the rebel position in Donbass. Russia doesn’t seek a massive refugee problem in Donbass and some other parts of the former Ukrainian SSR. As is, a sizeable number of Ukrainian residents have fled to Russia.

    Putin isn’t anti-US in the manner claimed by Peters. Moreover, Peters is clearly more anti-Russian (in a narrow minded way at that) than what can be reasonably said of how Putin views the US. Putin’s obvious differences with neocons, neolibs and flat out Russia haters isn’t by default anti-US. He was the first foreign leader to console the US following 9/11. The Russian president has been consistently on record for favoring better US-Russian ties (even inquiring about Russia joining NATO at one point), thereby explaining why he has appeared to have preferred Trump over Clinton.

    Some (including Trump) disagree with that view, which includes the notion that the Russians (by and large) prefer predictability. As a general rule this is otherwise true. However, Clinton’s neocon/neolib stated views on Russia have been to the point where many Russians felt willing to take a chance with Trump, whose campaign included a comparatively more sympathetic take of their country. At the same time, a good number of Russians questioned whether Trump would maintain that stance.

    some perhaps, but the middle class is dying (literally in the case of middle aged white men), and the working class is languishing.

    It’s true the 1% are gorging on a frenzy of corruption and graft, and a no doubt there are a few who prosper by serving that class, but the Main Streets of America are not, in any way, profiting off the exploitation of Africa or S. America or anywhere else. Indeed, it is them that are being exploited.

    The overall educational level and the level of awareness of what’s going on in the world in the US is dismal. Elites arranged that by maintaining pathetic education system and spreading lies via MSM; ignorant sheep are more likely to obey

    no argument there!

    However, we have to remember that clueless ignoramus in the US gets 5-10 times more than similarly clueless ignoramus in China or India.

    India and China (and Ethiopia and Somalia and Mexico and Brazil and so many other places) are not poor due to the oppression of Americans. Sure, Goldman Sachs and a thousand other vultures and thieves have done a lot of damage, but no more that the leadership of those respective lands.

    Has India ever heard of birth control, (for God’s sake!) Or Indonesia or a hundred other places, like Haiti, that overbreed their finite resources and limited space until their countries are reduced to shitholes.

    If a coal miner in West Virginia is doing a little better than an Untouchable in India, then trust me when I tell you I’m not going to blame the miner (or janitor or mechanic) in America for the poverty in the corrupt and stupid third world.

    As far as the suffering that the ZUSA has actually caused, and is causing in places like Syria and Yemen, none of that is being done on behalf of the American people, but rather the typical American is taxed to support these wars and atrocities on behalf of Israel or Saudi Arabia, respectively.

    The only reason for his “success” is the fact that he was born into an elite family.

    recently I was ranting on the terrible folly of this very thing.

    As far as Jews are concerned, this appears to be yet another red herring, like Russia-bashing. Are gentile Koch brothers or Walton family any better than the worst Jews in the US? They are just as selfish, greedy, and repulsive as George Soros or Sheldon Adelson.

    Yes, they’re just as selfish and greedy, but they aren’t as filled with genocidal hatred.

    It’s because of Zionist Jews that Americans were dragged into both world wars.

    It’s because of Zionist Jews (and assorted corrupt Gentiles) that Israel (with help from the CIA and ((media)), did 9/11, in order to plunge this century into horrors writ large like the last Zio-century.

    That there are legions of corrupt and soulless Gentiles willing and eager to jump on that gravy train, is a shame and a sin, but it doesn’t excuse the people who are the motivation behind the wars.

    The Kochs (and Chamber of Commerce and other Gentile scum) want massive immigration out of pure, raw, insatiable greed.

    Whereas the Jewish supremacist Zionists want it out of genocidal tribal hatreds.

    The typical American middle and working class are ground into the dirt between these two pillars of Satanic iniquity.

    I agree with much of what you’re saying, and it’s true about the elites in general. But the ZUSA is completely controlled by Zionist Jews, and I think that’s pretty obvious.

    This man knew that 9/11 was going to happen, if he wasn’t part of the planning. And yet look at how they abase themselves

    It is completely unnecessary and foolish to bring up and try to argue about the faith of another man, especially by superimposing one’s own views onto the matter. It’s clear that you believe it is impossible or highly unlikely to have high intelligence and be a true believer, but to me that is neither here nor there. The point is that Putin realizes that the Orthodox faith is the cultural framework of the Russian nation; its development historically, socially and culturally rest in the hands Orthodox Christianity. Yes! Russia’s history and the levers of power were wrenched away from its traditional Orthodox roots by those intent on revenge, those with a mad desire to unite the world under the banner of international communism, bringing about (so they hoped and continue to hope) the birth of their messiah. Thankfully that chapter of history is over, but it’s not over for the chosen: intent on revenge on Russia, just as they are forever intent on their innocence in all historical matters, they have moved on and rooted themselves into another host: the USA. They will be smacked down and put in their place again, but I hesitate to estimate the scheduling.

    Great post Rurik. You are a master truth teller and get straight to the point. Many thanks!

  67. @Frankie P

    Maybe it is presumptuous to express my opinion about another person’s faith, but let me remind you that Putin was a KGB officer and a member of the communist party. As such, he was (or pretended to be) a militant atheist. Now he publicly goes to church and remains there throughout the service (mind you, Russian Orthodox Christmas and Easter services are all-night affairs). Thus, he either lied then or is lying now about his faith. Take your pick.

    Yes, Orthodox Christianity was one of the pillars of Russian culture. But again, let me remind you that one of the greatest Russian writers, Leo Tolstoy, was excommunicated by the church. What’s more, current patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox church, was photographed with a watch worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, owns an apartment in the center of Moscow, likely worth millions of $, and a collection or rare books in this apartment with a huge value. If you are a Christian, you should know that “it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God” (Matthew 19:24; also Mark 10:25).

    I don’t share your and some other commenters’ fixation on Jews. I believe it’s a red herring. Elites, Jewish and gentile, are equally repulsive and guilty of most ills that afflict our world. Despite its many failings, one of the redeeming qualities of communism was that it called for confiscation of the possessions of moneyed elites. In reality, they were mostly hanged or shot. Considering what they are doing to the US and other countries, this was amply justified.

    Why (Oh Why) do they hate the Russians so much? Let me try to answer that question. Most armies in history were created for the purpose of enriching the host country by looting foreign lands. US are bucking that trend – they have an army that’s looting mostly the host country for enriching the same army and those who support it (domestically).

    Also, the best armies in history usually belonged to whoever happened to be the economic powerhouse at the moment – examples are too many to list them all – ancient Rome, Great Britain 16-19 century, France 19 century, Germany 19-20 century.

    There are exceptions to this rule, of course – Genghis Khan – the Mongols hardly an economic powerhouse, yet a number one military power of its time.

    Then we come to Russia. I don’t know when exactly Russia underwent the Genghis Khanisation process, but it’s apparent that they did and it served them well throughout their history. Meaning that their army usually outperforms their economy, and that’s what’s driving the west mad at least since Napoleon’s times.

    They think that Russia doesn’t deserve to be a powerhouse like they are thanks to their military, because they believe that other than their military, the Russians are culturally, economically, civilizationally, and yes – even genetically inferior to the west.

    Tough luck, chums. I have one answer to that: Maybe it’s not Russia’s fault that militarily they have always managed to outperform the west. Maybe the fault lies with you. How can you blame Russia for the fact that your armies suck? But, as they say in the US – you got to support the troops.

    I frankly do not think that communism requires redemption. It was first attempt at moving humanity towards next step in social evolution and it did not happen under the best conditions. It happened in the country ridden with accumulated problems from previous regime mishandling the country for a couple of centuries with those issues coming to a head and after so much pressure it resulted in massive eruption of violence which would have been even worse without Bolsheviks as it would lead to Russia disintegration and Russian state death., There would have happened something similar to modern Ukraine. Basically there were real issues behind those color revolutions in Ukraine and elsewhere but without progressive force caring about people there were ulterior forces that led those eruption of real grievances and these grievances are caused by the system of capitalism you have just described. Yours and other former Soviet citizens excellent education is another testament to communism regime.
    Current Russian regime got bad roots and I do not believe anything good will come out of these bad roots. The system is freakish and rotten at the core. It care s not for people. Current increase of retirement age is another testament to this. Bolsheviks when they started made their intentions rather obvious in destroyed and poor country. They assured real human rights while current system removed those rights and there is no guarantees that we as a soviet citizen used to enjoy. Obviously things were not perfect. They never are.

    Regarding new found religious feelings. it is obviously all fake.

    The personal viciousness of the Neocons’ attacks on Putin and Russia may have something to do with ancient memories (however false they may be), but the geopolitical & geo-economic challenges that the US & West faces compels even good old-fashioned Anglo-Imperialists to say nasty things about Russia.

    Since Putin came to power, Russia has been working the Plan. Its strategic objectives are to rejuvenate and consolidate the “Russian World” in Mackinder’s Heartland, and from there to leverage its enormous geographical size & natural resource base to become the central power on the Eurasian continent. It’s unique position culturally and geographically allows it to aspire to being the Grand Arbiter of Eurasian affairs, the only nation able to link the two ends of the continent geographically, economically and culturally.

    When Wolfowitz wrote his now infamous words…

    “Our first objective is to prevent the re-emergence of a new rival, either on the territory of the former Soviet Union or elsewhere, that poses a threat on the order of that posed formerly by the Soviet Union. This is a dominant consideration underlying the new regional defense strategy and requires that we endeavor to prevent any hostile power from dominating a region whose resources would, under consolidated control, be sufficient to generate global power.”

    … he was channelling Mackinder who said…

    …who rules the Heartland commands the World-Island;
    who rules the World-Island commands the world.

    Wolfowitz’s document was leaked before release, and its bald-faced call for Imperial conquest caused enough of a noise that it was hastily rewritten before its official release a month later.

    The manner of the Wolfowitz Doctrine’s emergence was a harbinger of the sort of half-assed attempt at empire the US embarked on. When it comes to Empire building, one is well advised to either Go Big, or Go Home. In the event, stretching its half-baked, incoherent doctrines to the breaking point, a series of inevitable fiascos followed and what we’re seeing now is the last desperate attempts to keep its satraps onside by bamboozling their publics and making it difficult for clear sighted politicians to lead their countries away from the increasingly loud sucking sound coming out of Washington. As even that tactic is now failing, the US will soon face another Go Big, or Go Home moment.

    Communism (at least as implemented in the USSR) had its severe faults. The main of these was that they built a loser-oriented society: no matter how little you contribute, you get quite a bit, with inevitable other side of this coin – no matter how much you contribute, you don’t get much more. People are quite different, and a difference in compensation on the order of 5-10-fold would be appropriate. Naturally, the difference on the order of 50-500-fold, like in current Russia or the “liberal” West, is thievery, pure and simple: advantageously born or smarter people without conscience robbing regular folks blind, and using their control of MSM to convince suckers that any other system is for losers. On top of that, some (party numenclatura) were a lot more equal than others (to borrow Orwell’s expression). There were also tactical blunders: Soviet authorities did not allow most citizens to travel and work abroad, where they could find out for themselves that huge material advantage of the West is a propaganda myth. In fact, in material terms Russians now live much better then Italians, Greeks, Spaniards, not to mention the majority of Eastern European countries. In the USSR this myth festered and eventually lead to the downfall of the USSR, as there were no serious forces ready to defend it from traitors at the top, who just wanted to steal more than the party rules allowed them. I remember believing in that myth until I got my personal experience working in the US. Here I learned how true is the American folk wisdom that “there is no such thing as a free lunch” and “free cheese is only in the mousetrap”.

    However, Soviet education system was way superior to American, and possibly better than in many European countries (I have no personal experience there). I know for a fact that Soviet school gave a lot better education than the school in the US, even though the US spends enormous amounts of money on schools, much more than USSR did per pupil. The difference in college education was huge in the USSR and is huge in the US. I know that Moscow State or Phystech gave education that was not worse, possibly better than Harvard, Yale, Caltech, UPenn, and other best schools in the US. But most colleges in the USSR were way below MSU level. Similarly, most colleges in the US aren’t worth the name, and only 2% of US college students attend really good schools. However, I remember that when we graduated from Biofak MSU, which trained the students mostly to do research, I had a feeling that they taught us to swim but never put water into the pool. After moving to the US (I did not lie to pretend being a persecuted refugee, I found a job via mail and went to work) within months of working in the lab I got a reputation of a star post-doc, a “go to” person in anything related to molecular biology and biochemistry. Besides, it became my unofficial duty to fix the scintillation counter, which was regularly screwed up by the Italian post-docs working in another lab.

    I can’t say that today’s Russia is all bad or all good. I think open borders is a huge achievement. People have a chance to see the reality with their own eyes: wherever you go in Europe or Asia now, you meet lots of people from Russia, which means that they have the money to travel and an interest in other cultures, as you meet them in museums and at historical sites all over Europe. I do resent what current authorities did to the education system: they degraded it, ostensibly in an attempt to reform and make it more Western-like. I think these “reforms” were extremely ill-conceived, the school is becoming much worse (in fact, American-like, although it must be degraded a lot more to sink all the way down to the US level). I resent than instead of improving Russian Academy of Sciences (it was pretty bad in the USSR) they essentially emasculated it. If you go by publications, there is less decent research in Russia now than there was in the USSR. Huge inequality is another negative, especially considering that most oligarchs got rich by looting state property, and now continue to enrich themselves the same way (heads of most Russian corporations, state-owned and private, are nothing but thieves). That made Russia more US-like, but I consider that regress rather than progress. On the other hand, I consider it a huge achievement that in international affairs Russia today is pursuing its own interests, rather than engaging in a thankless task of saving the world. I subscribe to the Protestant dictum that “God helps those who help themselves”, so whoever is worth saving will save themselves, and the rest be damned.

    Finally, life. As a biochemist, I see no other option than the idea that life appeared spontaneously. The best book about evolution is Dawkins’ “The blind watchmaker”. People who don’t know even elementary biology would tell you that the probability of an emergence of any protein by chance is virtually nil. That is true, but no protein emerged that way. Proteins consist of parts, sequence motifs and domains, each much smaller than the whole thing. Modern proteins (ours and bacterial alike – we all evolved for billions of years) emerged as combinations of these parts. You can find the same domain or sequence motif in dozens, sometimes hundreds, of proteins, attesting to the combinatorial nature of evolution of complex things. When you mutagenize your protein and look at the sequence, you can see how protein families evolved in the sequence of nucleotides (most amino acids can be encoded by many, up to 6, different codons, which makes the evolution clearly traceable). Our ribosomes (machines that make proteins by translating messenger RNA sequence) are a lot bigger and slower than ribosomes in eubacteria, yet we have those better and more efficient ribosomes in mitochondria (plants also have them in chloroplasts). Creationists can’t explain this, but this is just the result of eukaryotic cell being a symbiosis of anaerobic archaebacteria with “bad” ribosomes and aerobic eubacteria with better ribosomes, that became mitochondria and chloroplasts. There are many other clear traces of evolution (constantly developing antibiotic resistance of disease-causing bacteria being one of the most obvious), but the funniest argument for evolution I know is this: “Bush junior is the best argument against intelligent design: nobody intelligent would ever design that”.

    No, it’s not. No one can enter the same river twice. Russia will thankfully never go back to its Orthodox roots completely, although Orthodoxy will co-exist peacefully within the secular society. Putin’s public insistence on rituals of the Orthodox faith is one of his least attractive features.

    The Soviet Union has been gone for more than a quarter of a century and yet it is – to borrow a phrase from a popular Soviet song – is more alive than the living. The Soviet period has become a sort of a yardstick against which the modern Russia is compared in every area: culture, economy, moral climate, everything.

    It is a universal agreement that in many areas Russia doesn’t measure up to the Soviet standards – culture and education are the prime examples.

    Yes, Stalin was not Jewish, but what would you say was the Jewish role (if any) with the Bolshevik revolution (and the Holodomor and the rest of the horrors visited upon Russia and beyond, -as described by Solzhenitsyn- by Jewish finance, intrigue, treachery and genocidal villainy)?

    this is by now an iconic image

    https://media.gettyimages.com/photos/leon-trotsky-depicted-on-a-polish-propaganda-poster-as-bloodsoaked-picture-id566464833?s=612×612

    was the fact that Trotsky was Jewish, and his victims Christian, of any consequence whatsoever?

    The reason people like me lament Jewish supremacist Zionists, isn’t out of irrational antipathy for Jews or your average Jewish dentist or whatever. I like most of the Jews I know.

    No, the reason is due to some of the things that (a tiny percentage of very powerful) Jews are ultimately responsible for. Like dragging us into wars in the Middle East, for instance.

    Like what we American tax payers are forced to fund and provide moral cover for in Palestine.

    Sure, there are tens of millions of brain dead, so-called Christian Zionists, but their leaders are bought off with Jewish shekels. The most famous of them, Jerry Falwell was given a Lear jet by the Israeli government.

    And perhaps most of all, is the Fed, a printing press that allows the world’s most wealthy and powerful Jews to loan us our own money, at interest, and then use the financial power that the Fed provides them, to corrupt the rest of our institutions.

    If the ECB, (an extension of Rothschild’s Fed) were in the hands of Gentiles, do you think Europe would be committing ethnic suicide?

    Look first at the list of first Sovnarkom, for starters. Jewish finance and interests were important but only, again, as part of the puzzle. I do not consider Solzhenitsyn a good writer, even less a competent Russia historian, not to mention him being a complete amateur in any affairs pertaining defining military and political factors which led to two Russian Revolutions (in fact, three, once 1905 is considered). So, I am not interested in discussing the work of falsifiers.

    I enjoy reading your posts, AnonTN,

    the probability of an emergence of any protein by chance is virtually nil.

    probability

    that’s a tricky word, eh?

    from what I’ve glimmered, it isn’t proteins or even amino acids that people wonder over their original emergence by chance, but rather the (miraculous) DNA molecule itself.

    How did those four amino acids arrange themselves in just that way?

    The structure seems positively preternatural, and when it comes to the probability of such an ‘accident’, how likely was that?

    The argument for creationism as far as I’ve heard it posited, is that our earth was ‘seeded’ with the DNA molecule, (as presumably other planets throughout the universe were as well), and that this was done by some intelligent (or otherwise deliberate) agent. (G0d?)

    When you look at the DNA molecule, and ponder its probability, what is the likelihood that it sprang from the ooze by happenstance?

    Yes, sick ideology often attracts nutcases. I know a guy in Ukraine with a history of mental illness who is a staunch supporter of current “president” Poroshenko.
    However mad Bolton might be, most card-carrying Russophobs and neocons are not crazy: they are cynical people without scruples working for money. Say, Hillary Clinton or Mike Pompeo are not the brightest bulbs in the chandelier, but they are not too mad or too stupid to understand the reality. They are simply greedy scum paid to do the hatched job. The same applies to most current politicians involved in the smear campaign against Russia. The greatest sin of Russia and Putin is that they got in the way of thieves who wanted to loot the whole world but encountered resistance. Assad in Syria, Iran, North Korea, China, and Venezuela committed the same sin: got between the thieves and their intended loot.

    The US does have the capability of going big.

    No, it doesn’t and, in fact, American military record of imperial adventures in second half of XX-early XXI century, once one discounts this turkey shoot of incompetent Iraq military in the Gulf Wars, is rather dismal. Including in the times when the US actually did have wherewithal to fight (relatively) big wars. Today the United States is a bankrupt state with over-stretched military and grossly overrated technological and operational capabilities. Empire needs military power–NOBODY in the US top political echelons today, with some very-very few exceptions (fingers on one hand will be enough to count them), understands the nature of military power nor knows how to use it. In other words–they are incompetent. This competence, or lack thereof, is also the part of the capability.

    It is not “misunderstood”–it is a complete caricature which now blows into the faces of those who helped to create it. Western Russia “expertise” is pathetic and some exceptions merely confirm the rule. Generally, the term “Russia scholar” when applied to most, in our particular case American, experts should be treated as a bad joke.

    Tell you what, you almost hit the nail on the head. The four bases of DNA could have appeared by chance in the primordial soup, got linked to deoxyribose and phosphates, and even got connected in various sequences. The hardest thing to explain is how the system that converts DNA to messenger RNA and especially the one that then translates RNA sequence into protein sequence (ribosomes with the supply of transfer RNAs for different codons and amino acids) emerged. I am not aware of any good model explaining that. My point is that hypothesizing that this was designed by some intelligent agency does not solve the problem: next you need to explain how that agency emerged. The answer that this agency (say, God) is eternal is essentially cheating: this answer would suffice for ribosomes, but it would be just as unsatisfying for a logically thinking person.

    Well, President Putin has my deepest respect but First Sovnarkom had only ONE Jew and his name was Leon Trotsky–the rest, all Slavs. Moreover, Vladimir Putin is NO historian and his fascination with Solzhenitsyn is not a healthy one. Nobody denies the role of Jews (positive, as well as negative) in Russian History but Russia’s history is a bit more complex than some Manichean struggle between evil Jews and noble Russian Orthodox Christians. In fact, it is infinitely more complex. But if you want to view it as one unstoppable Jewish juggernaut against Christ-loving Russians, who am I to suggest to you otherwise.

    Very true but they are multidimensional and only some of them are not crazy, Ralph Peters, Max Boot or many other rabid Russophobes are genuinely mad. Enough to take a look at their reactions and behavior, I omit here a complete military-political delirium they propagate, which in itself a fruit of a sick imagination. So it is both for very many of them. After the death of Richard Pipes I received communications from person who studied under him, this person has Ph.D in history, he describes him going completely mad, from going hi pitch in his voice, almost screaming, to sweating profusely, once the word Russia and Russians were uttered. The hatred of Russia was palpable. Guess what, Pipes was hailed as America’s greatest “Russia scholar”. It is never one thing. Moreover, pathological lust for political power which afflicted so many is in itself a good indication of a borderline disorder.

    That’s like saying what existed before the universe existed?

    when did time start?

    what’s on the other side of the known (and expanding) universe?

    But for what we ‘know’, I’m basically in your camp. Once DNA is here, then we simply evolved as one of the many manifestations the miracle molecule makes possible.

    when people ask me ‘then where is the missing link?’, I tell them that we are.

    One day perhaps- many millenniums hence, we might evolve to be something a God would claim as his own handiwork (if we don’t blow up the planet in some baboon-like petty dominance display before then).

    Here, I have to politely disagree since Russian “liberals” both grant-supported and ones that are not is a separate animal altogether. Firs, most of them, grants or no grants, are the real deal, they got grants because they are the real deal, not the other way around, and causality in this case really matters. I don’t need even to know if Mr. Nekrasov or Gozman are grant-eaters, their hatred of everything Russian is palpable. The only weaker feeling than hatred they have is contempt. This cannot be hidden–it shines through. They do it for the idea and grants are just a bonus. It all goes back to Russian “Westerners” and liberals about whom Tyutchev (IIRC) left a profound paragraph.

    obviously

    In fact, it is infinitely more complex.

    I’ve delved a bit into it. Read some books and such. But my education is always incomplete, and I’m an eternal student.

    But if you want to view it as one unstoppable Jewish juggernaut against Christ-loving Russians, who am I to suggest to you otherwise.

    naw, that’s not how I see it.

    The reason I bring up Jews is because I see them as often times bad actors that are causing dire problems right now, today, in this world. And menacing things I value, like peace, when peace is practicable.

    When you talk about the infinite complexity of Russia’s history, so too is that history tied to her neighbors, and Ukraine’s history as well. (I suspect you know where I’m going with this ; )

    So what some very clever and sinister people might do, is use that history and certain fault lines in the Russian and Ukrainian narratives, to foist strife and death and misery and war. You see?

    Now you may say that Poroshenko is not a Jew, and as far as I know, that’s right, (or not, I don’t really know or care), but what I do know, and do care about, is the way neocon Jews (and goyim stooges) in my country have cynically used those historic fault lines to foment strife and war.

    The way I see contemporary Russian history is one that following the collapse of the SU, Russia was looted during Yeltin’s drunken reign by Rothschild agents known as the “Russian” oligarchs, (a few of which seem to have been actual ethnic Russians), and from there how Putin heroically wrested the destiny of Russia from these bad actors.

    Then it was on to a bright future, except then Putin grew alarmed by what he saw happening to Libya, to be followed by Syria and what was it Gen. Clark said.., seven other countries?

    So he put the kibosh in Syria’s destabilization, and by doing so, earned the wrath of the Zionists.

    Whereupon neocon Jews like Nuland installed Jews like Yatz in a coup that here in the ZUS they called “democracy”.

    The reason ((they)) did that, was to stick a pointed stick into the Russian bear, for defying ((their)) agenda in the greater Levant.

    That’s why they blamed Putin for MH17.

    That’s (probably) why they lowered the price of oil, to harm Putin (and Venezuela and others)

    That’s why our media are 24/7, 365 screeching that PUTIN IS HITLER!!!

    Because, as far as I can tell, it is Putin that is the only resistance to whatever Bibi wants.

    Because what I can tell you, is that Russia or no Russia, Bibi gets what ever he wants from “our” fecal government, always.

    And so because of this dire paradigm, I do sometimes mention that it is Jewish supremacists that are foisting these wars. And causing great strife between Russia and the rest of the world.

    I don’t fulminate about Jewish supremacists because they stole my twinkle, no.

    I talk about Zionist intrigue because that is exactly why the world is demanding that Putin return Crimea. And pay for the deaths on MH17, and why thousands have died in Donbas, etc..

    These things didn’t happen in a vacuum. There are actors involved, and geopolitics, and Machiavellian intrigues and machinations that should be exposed IMHO.

    Western Liberalism doesn’t have Jewish roots, unless one wants to associate capitalism with Jews only, which is not the case. This liberalism is flesh and blood of the Enlightenment and Europe’s current problems have roots in this liberalism, together with the post-WW II cultural shock. It is also rooted in the United States emerging from this war unscathed. So, no it is not just the tribe, it is the whole clockwork of Western Civilization and its leader, the United States, which drives it into the gutter. Jews here are just for the ride and chutzpa–US and Jews were created for each-other. “Rothschild’s Fed” in this case but one of many institutions which was created to enrich a rather substantial (to put it mildly) American strata of radically not-Jewish waspies who are now trying to find any justification (and excuses) for them screwing their own country into the increasingly grim future. Per tribe, ask yourself a question WHO owns this site and who allows, including very many openly mental people, to freely and openly express their opinions? Is Ron Unz, who is a real cultural American asset (even though I do not always agree with him) a tribe or not? Guess who is the most vocal and courageous fighter against anti-Russian madness in US? Professor Stephen Cohen, is he a tribe?

    Here is a great British historian for ya:

    “This swift decline in British vigor at home and the failure to exploit the empire were not owing to some inevitable senescent process of history….That cause was a political doctrine….The doctrine was liberalism, which criticized and finally demolished the traditional conception of the nation-state as a collective organism, a community, and asserted instead the primacy of individual. According to liberal thinking a nation was no more than so many human atoms who happened to live under the same set of laws….It was Adam Smith who formulated the doctrine of Free Trade, the keystone of liberalism, which was to exercise a long-live and baneful effect on British power….Adam Smith attacked the traditional “mercantilist” belief that a nation should be generally self-supporting…”

Yes, there is a long history of fights between “Westerners” and “Slavophiles” in Russia, going even before Tyutchev. However, being a “Westerner” one does not have to be a traitor. For example, Peter the Great was a “Westerner”, yet he was clearly a Russian patriot (even though he was not quite Russian by blood). Whereas all this scum are traitors.

    An argument that people use against the spontaneous occurrence of life is that there is almost zero chance of the right amino acids joining up. Anyone who has worked with string and cables knows that they have a quite extraordinary, almost uncanny, ability to get tangled up together. Before life happened, there were no bacteria to destroy emerging complexes of amino acids. (It has been shown that inorganic materials given the sort of conditions that the newly born planet would have had, can give rise to amino acids.) Also “almost zero chance” taken an almost infinite number of times over a very long period, adds up to a quite good chance.

    you’re obviously mixing up the two different meanings of the word ‘liberalism’.

    The liberalism of the Enlightenment meant that we should all use our rationality to question the dogmas (and the leaders) of the day, and put them to the test of reason. That’s why it’s also known as the Age of Reason.

    It freed the Western mind from the stone age dogmas Europe was mired in during the Dark Ages, and we’re all witness to the astounding marvels of science and technology that blossomed as a result of those singularly great minds.

    vs. the liberalism (that is decidedly being pushed by the (((media))) and institutions of the progressive left, rotting out the spirit and vigor of Western civilization.

    Two, very decidedly different, and indeed, mutually exclusive movements.

    The liberalism of the Enlightenment meant that we question everything. The liberalism pushed by the (((media))) and (((pop-culture))) today means that we don’t dare question the shibboleths that our schools are so careful to indoctrinate into their charges.

    ‘Sodomy is a healthy lifestyle. There’s no such thing as gender. There’s no such thing as race. Borders = hate. Affirmative Action is the opposite of racism. Obama was a great statesman and peacemaker. Putin is evil and Hitler reincarnated.

    And on and on.

    Those are some of the mantras of Hollywood and academia’s ‘liberalism’, which would cause the men of the Enlightenment, like Isaac Newton’s or Thomas Jefferson’s head to explode.

    We can generally trace the transformation of the meaning of the word ‘liberalism’ from its illustrious past to its ignoble death, with the advent of the Frankfurt School. Which is when free thought was replaced with iron mantras of politically correct anti-reason.

    The fact that they called this new fealty to imposed ignorance – liberalism, is just one more outrage against reason and truth that marks today’s liberalism.

    So, no it is not just the tribe, it is the whole clockwork of Western Civilization and its leader, the United States

    the liberalism of the tribe and Western civilization are mutually exclusive.

    The liberalism of the tribe is specifically designed to destroy Western civilization’s will to exist and wipe it off the face of the planet.

    American strata of radically not-Jewish waspies who are now trying to find any justification (and excuses) for them screwing their own country

    that makes sense.

    If I were some middle class white guy, then I’d sure want to see my country, and any hope for my children’s future, to be utterly destroyed.

    Tucker Carlson is to blame. Ron Paul did it.

    Do you reduce every complicated issue to a cartoon version of black and white?

    If I criticize Israel or question the antics of the Jewish owned Fed = why then it automatically means that I hate every Jew alive and consider them all evil and wicked and terrible people.

    It can not be otherwise, huh?

    There is no nuance or grey areas, when it comes to criticizing some of the things some Jews do.

    If you have the temerity to ‘go there’ then it automatically means you’re a neo-Nazi and you want to gas all Jews, huh?

    Fuck that has to be one of the stupidest things I’ve ever read.

    Think Jewish collective intrigue is why we’re fighting wars in the Middle East, well then! you automatically are condemning all Jews as war mongers and swindlers!

    Are you really that dumb?

    Professor Stephen Cohen, is he a tribe?

    I guess you are.

    I’ll let you in on a secret. Some of my greatest heroes are Jews, (moron). Carl Sagan had a great and beautiful mind. There are many Jews I admire and a few I hold dear as great and sublime individuals.

    The sad thing is that I have to even mention such things, because too many idiots think any criticism of any Jew means automatically that you hate all Jews.

    Fuck! Talk about Manichaeism!

    The doctrine was liberalism, which criticized and finally demolished the traditional conception of the nation-state

    the liberalism he’s referring to is the liberalism of the Frankfort School, not the liberalism of Thomas Paine or Benjamin Franklin, for whom the nation-state was something worth killing and dying for.

    US doesn’t have resources anymore of “going big”. It is not realistically an option…

    I know, and should probably have made it clearer that when faced with that decision, the US will have to go home. The top levels of the USM pyramid know well the limits of the box they’ve gotten themselves into. They’ve built the wrong force structure for the world as it is and will be.

    Madeleine Albright’s famous question to Gen. Powell ‘What’s the point of having this superb military you’re always talking about if we can’t use it?’ can now be re-worded to ask “What’s the point of having this enormous military edifice and expenditure if it isn’t superb, or even effective?” The answer is that there is no point. Much of it can be jettisoned without affecting the US’ real strategic situation, and almost all of it if its mandate were to be shrunk to defence of its homeland and close allies.

    The recent 6hr meeting in Finland between Gerasimov and Dunford, is (I believe) likely to have dealt with some of the parameters governing the USM’s “going home”. I can’t even imagine how they’re gonna do this in an organized way, but it’s in everybody’s interest that it happens as smoothly as possible. That those two seem to have built a professional rapport and even understanding is heartening.

    The Germans did more for the Reds than just transport Lenin from Zurich to Petrograd. There was also the concerted soft power anti-White/pro-Red left activism in the West, as well as some other matters mentioned in these non-JRL promoted pieces:

    https://www.eurasiareview.com/08042016-fuzzy-history-how-poland-saved-the-world-from-russia-analysis/

    https://www.eurasiareview.com/23032017-reexamining-russias-past-analysis/

    The Jacobin piece linked at the very top of this note makes some broad inaccuracies on the Russian Civil War era violence. There was plenty of such on the side of the Reds, which BTW adversely affected a good number of Jews.

    Towards the end of the Russian Civil War, the more objective of historians on this issue note that the Whites had noticeably maintained a better discipline of its forces concerning the issues of looting and violence. A hypothetical White victory wasn’t destine for a Nazi/Nazi light scenario. One notes the exiled manner of many Whites including Anton Denikin and Peter Wrangel.

    The pogroms against the Jews in Russian Civil War era Ukraine happened before the Whites established a primary base there. These pogroms included involvement from the forces loyal to Ukrainian nationalist leader Symon Petliura, as well as some locals.

    Much of the historical accounting on this subject says that Petliura’s forces were the most violent among Russian Civil War era combatants against the Jews. In more recent years, there seems to be an increase of claims stating differently – which appear a blend of questionably biased views from some on the left and others (not necessarily on the left) taking an anti-White/pro-Petliura stance.

    I’m not sure how pro-White Pipes was as suggested by the leftist author of the above linked Jacobin piece. I recall Pipes saying rather rather derisively that US based Russian studies programs had at one time been more influenced by the Whites. Whatever the degree of that being true has declined as the svidomite (Ukrainian nationalist anti-Russian view) has gotten greater academic play (Motyl, Kuzio, et al), mixed in with the leftist and JRL court appointed Russia friendly syndromes.

    Look up Rostislav Ishenko’s latest excellent piece yesterday:

    I did, and as usual Ishenko takes an oblique approach that shines a light into obscure but critical corners.

    What an eye opener this one is.

    Not sure how much was lost in translation, but if I understood correctly the Russians are massing forces in the Western District, not because they fear an attack from NATO, or plan to attack Europe but to rescue Europe from a conflagration that will be sparked in Ukraine. That it was drifting into failed state status is well known, but that a religious war is in the offing was utterly unknown to me, and I suspect to most others here.

    That in turn shines a light on why Poland and the Baltics are begging for US/NATO troops as well, and at least partially why US/NATO is delivering. As Ukraine drifts into chaos, its neighbours, being aware of its history of extreme violence and atrocity are preparing themselves for the spillover. They have no desire to relive the decade+ blood orgy that erupted in the middle of the 20th C centred on Ukraine (where, IMHO, the real Holocaust happened).

    Overwhelming force applied at an overwhelming pace is the best way of dealing with such an outbreak, and the Russians are the only party able to deliver. US/NATO forces can be expected to roar around in their APCs avoiding trouble and then claim credit in accordance with Western military tradition. Meanwhile, the Russians will go into mopping up the leftovers.

    Makes a lot of sense if Ishchenko’s read of the situation is right. It probably has a bigger impact on Dunford’s and Gerasimov’s meeting than the USM “going home”.

    Whew!
    PS: Yes, I was aware of the Russian central bank selling off its USTs. With the Petro-Yuan and Western sanctions now in full swing, it really doesn’t need $100B’s worth to manage its U$ denominated imports.

There are certain things that cannot be questioned for society to have a back bone. A moral and cultural one. Otherwise things turn the way they are now.

    I do not thing Soviet was a loser oriented society but I do agree that paying people with different talents and achievements about same was wrong and scale of 5:1 would be just right. As far as I have been reading this practice got established under Khrushchev. During Stalin times overachievers and people of science were paid multiple times more than average performers. Anyway, while this was some flaw it was not an evil one like what we observe now with income disparities. We live in 21st century and it is clear even those who are less capable should not be allowed to live in squalor. There must be basic fairness and justice in modern society. This can only be under socialist communist system. Also, not everything is about material side. I am afraid Khrushchev destroyed the spirit that was driving people during Stalin’s times. I get it you are not Stalin fan. But I see him as harsh but fair leader. Considering times and human material he was presiding over there was no other way. What happened later with less harsh and fair leaders we all know.
    I never really cared about how people lived in the West, but our friend who happened to be KGB officer and spent years in USA told us all that was pretty sure I always was thinking we were living better. sausage and material stuff was never high on my agenda.

    While not being a fan of Stalin, I acknowledge that only the people who rose to the top before Bolsheviks took power were good for anything. Those who rose after, from Khruschev on, were worthless nonentities. I consider this negative selection of leaders as one of the drawbacks of the Soviet system.
    Materially the people in some Western countries lived better than the Soviet people. However, the difference was ~2-3-fold at best, not 10+-fold as many in the USSR believed, and there were (and are) very few countries with higher living standards than Russia. As far as psychological wellbeing is concerned, the USSR compared to the West even better, except for the people with excellent education and willingness to work hard, like me. That’s the PR campaign Soviet authorities lost to their peril: the support of better intellectually equipped and the most active people.
    I agree that nobody, even the laziest and most useless, should go hungry today, but the difference between what those get and what hard-working people get should be many-fold. Otherwise, the society provides disincentive for the people who can contribute, dragging itself down.
    Also, USSR should have paid more attention to the production of consumer goods, even if it meant fewer tanks and artillery pieces. It’s policies made all these tanks useless, anyway, not to mention that today these tanks and other military hardware is used against Russia by former “brothers” (with “bothers” like that, who needs enemies).

    to question the virtue of a particular king or religious dogma, does not logically lead to questioning the existence of gender.

    I suppose you’re coming at this from the religious angle, and suggesting that we should have stayed in the medieval ages when the pope ruled like a Caesar. At least then there’d be respect for gender.

    But I don’t agree. In fact as I look around, when it comes to having a ‘back bone’, it seems to me that it’s none other than the church that is a wet dishrag when it comes to all these progressive abominations upon reason.

    That couple in Colorado had to fight that fight all on their own. Where was the church to thunder from every pulpit in the land that ‘you can jail us or kill us, but you will never make us celebrate your moral abomination!’

    Where were they? Perhaps the pope was too worried about someone’s feelings. Perhaps the protestants were worried about losing their tax exempt status.

    It’s reason, you see that is our ticket.

    Rationality. Without which, we’re just bipedal consumer zombies without a compass.

    I don’t need a religion or tradition or a dogma to tell me that men are men and women are women, and that ‘Viva la Difference!’
    And that anything in-between is a tragic anomaly, not to be ‘celebrated’ but pitied. I don’t need religion to tell me that sodomy is viscerally revolting, at least the kind between two males. I don’t need religion to tell me that borders are good, and that there are important ethnic differences between the races of man.

    All I need is rationality to point the way, and a healthy and functioning brain to see what’s obvious.

    But when you relinquish your rationality over to an ‘ism’, (religious or otherwise) who then does the ‘hard work’ of thinking for you, like modern liberals or the religious far right, (strange bedfellows ; ), then, when your soul is an empty vessel, charlatans find it an easy cup to fill with their own agenda-driven “truths”.

    ‘The earth is five thousand years old, and it was created in seven days by a god who alternatively loves us, and yet slaughters us and our children wholesale when we’re not sufficiently and sycophantically worshipful of Him. ‘Build an ark Noah, because I’m going to kill every living thing on this planet, because my children are not submissive and obedient to me enough.

    or, ‘there’s no difference between men and women. That’s a societal construct of the patriarchy!’

    Neither one of these absurdities pass the straight-face test of rationality, and yet there are untold hundreds of millions of people that believe them from each side of the left/right paradigm.

    If you talked to the men (and obviously women as well) of the Enlightenment, as they pondered Darwin or Hume or Locke, Nietzsche or my favorite, Francis Bacon..

    and asked them, ‘really, what reason is there for thinking there are any differences between the sexes. Surely, both sexes are completely interchangeable, and find expression as a man or women or anything in between, by how they identify on any given day. And we should start immediately to allow men who identify as women, to use the girl’s bathroom, and pass laws to punish anyone who refers to a man as ‘he, or him’, when that man identifies as a ‘she’.

    They’d (rightly) consider you clinically insane, as indeed, you’d be.

    And that’s because they didn’t need to consult scripture or the NYT to see the obvious.

    But what’s going on today, is that people are repudiating their rationality, because it flies in the face of the dogmas on the progressive left and religious right.

    You are right. I am saying this as a biologist. The two genders in mammals ensure reproduction. I believe that sexual attraction to the same gender, as well as a desire to change one’s gender, are symptoms of mental disorder. This does not mean that these mental patients should be discriminated against (like we don’t discriminate against people suffering from depression or schizophrenia), but there are certain limitations imposed by their condition (say, we don’t let blind people drive cars or pilot airplanes: this is not discrimination, this is protection of other members of the society). I was once told by a “progressive” true believer in political correctness that of course gay people in a straight society look strange. I pointed out that gay society cannot exist, it would die out in one generation, as all people, straight and gay, can only be produced by a heterosexual act.

    Just ask yourself, what are the chances that you might one day decide you’d like to s–k a d–k.

    Is that even possible?

    because if you’re a straight guy, then guess what? It would be virtually impossible for a straight man ever to decide he wants to s–k a d–k.

    Impossible. Period. It ain’t going to happen. In fact for a straight dude, the worst thing imaginable would be to have homosexual sex. Most men would rather you simply shoot them. Or whatever, just not that!

    So obviously homosexuality is a tragic affliction, not a choice.

    Compared to modern western leaders Kruschev was rather good leader and Brezhnev is downright genius. I was and am actually fond of Dear Leonid Iliich. So I believe it is not a matter of social political organization but systematic and probably human feature. The West has been producing non entities, idiots and morons at the top with unerring consistency. It is just that conditions in the West are far more forgiving than in Russia. Also we have not mentioned destruction and suffering caused by war in ussr somewhat lagging in few aspects of life standards. Socialism slogan is from everyone by their abilities to everyone for their contribution. Hence obviously hardworking and better contributing people should be rewarded especially like in Stalin times via glorifying and promoting them to higher status. Stahanov movement comes to mind. I think Stalin genius is underappreciated. Regarding weapons manufacturing I believe it was a matter of great patriotic war shock. That war in every respect has caused great damage to us including probably due to huge loss of Tim and best human material laying foundation for further problems. Stalin wasted 8-10 years of his life to first win the war and then rebuild the country.imagine no war. I am pretty sure there would be no 1991.

    We don’t know. Mental disorders usually have a genetic component, so likely this one has it. Non-genetic (environmental) component would be important, too. Say, if you put too many male mice in one cage and don’t feed them enough, some males will try to f..k other males. Stress makes pretty much any mammal go crazy. However, because of political correctness, no real study of this subject is possible. No researcher would put his/her career in jeopardy, especially considering how many other interesting problems there are in biology; no government agency would fund an honest study, as they don’t want a backlash from the PC crowd. So, we have to wait for the societies that are not afflicted by the rot of PC, such as Russia or China, to develop to the point when someone focuses on that particular problem.

    And for all its faults, Congress is a solid supporter of Israel, as is Trump. Trump’s support of Israel and strong ties to Judaism (if he isn’t Jewish he might as well be) were obvious to those who were looking, but right after the campaign the “Russian collusion” hysteria was strong and some people may not have understood it. (The Russian collusion thing is hilarious because the antisemitic Hillary / Obama folks were the colluders.)

    So people were surprised when Trump “reluctantly” agreed with Congress’ sanctions. Actually I am sure he was very happy to do so, and to some extent hit back for Russia’s efforts to elect his opponent among other things.
