A ceremony for signing the treaties on the accession of the Donetsk People’s Republic, the Lugansk People’s Republic, the Zaporozhye Region and the Kherson Region to the Russian Federation took place in of the Grand Kremlin Palace’s St George Hall.

Citizens of Russia, citizens of the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics, residents of the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, deputies of the State Duma, senators of the Russian Federation,

As you know, referendums have been held in the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics and the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions. The ballots have been counted and the results have been announced. The people have made their unequivocal choice.

Today we will sign treaties on the accession of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Lugansk People’s Republic, Zaporozhye Region and Kherson Region to the Russian Federation. I have no doubt that the Federal Assembly will support the constitutional laws on the accession to Russia and the establishment of four new regions, our new constituent entities of the Russian Federation, because this is the will of millions of people. (Applause.)

It is undoubtedly their right, an inherent right sealed in Article 1 of the UN Charter, which directly states the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples.

I repeat, it is an inherent right of the people. It is based on our historical affinity, and it is that right that led generations of our predecessors, those who built and defended Russia for centuries since the period of Ancient Rus, to victory.

Here in Novorossiya, [Pyotr] Rumyantsev, [Alexander] Suvorov and [Fyodor] Ushakov fought their battles, and Catherine the Great and [Grigory] Potyomkin founded new cities. Our grandfathers and great-grandfathers fought here to the bitter end during the Great Patriotic War.

We will always remember the heroes of the Russian Spring, those who refused to accept the neo-Nazi coup d’état in Ukraine in 2014, all those who died for the right to speak their native language, to preserve their culture, traditions and religion, and for the very right to live. We remember the soldiers of Donbass, the martyrs of the “Odessa Khatyn,” the victims of inhuman terrorist attacks carried out by the Kiev regime. We commemorate volunteers and militiamen, civilians, children, women, senior citizens, Russians, Ukrainians, people of various nationalities; popular leader of Donetsk Alexander Zakharchenko; military commanders Arsen Pavlov and Vladimir Zhoga, Olga Kochura and Alexei Mozgovoy; prosecutor of the Lugansk Republic Sergei Gorenko; paratrooper Nurmagomed Gadzhimagomedov and all our soldiers and officers who died a hero’s death during the special military operation. They are heroes. (Applause.) Heroes of great Russia. Please join me in a minute of silence to honour their memory.

(Minute of silence.)

Thank you.

Behind the choice of millions of residents in the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics, in the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, is our common destiny and thousand-year history. People have passed this spiritual connection on to their children and grandchildren. Despite all the trials they endured, they carried the love for Russia through the years. This is something no one can destroy. That is why both older generations and young people – those who were born after the tragic collapse of the Soviet Union – have voted for our unity, for our common future.

In 1991 in Belovezhskaya Pushcha, representatives of the party elite of that time made a decision to terminate the Soviet Union, without asking ordinary citizens what they wanted, and people suddenly found themselves cut off from their homeland. This tore apart and dismembered our national community and triggered a national catastrophe. Just like the government quietly demarcated the borders of Soviet republics, acting behind the scenes after the 1917 revolution, the last leaders of the Soviet Union, contrary to the direct expression of the will of the majority of people in the referendum of 1991, destroyed our great country, and simply made the people in the former republics face this as an accomplished fact.

I can admit that they didn’t even know what they were doing and what consequences their actions would have in the end. But it doesn’t matter now. There is no Soviet Union anymore; we cannot return to the past. Actually, Russia no longer needs it today; this isn’t our ambition. But there is nothing stronger than the determination of millions of people who, by their culture, religion, traditions, and language, consider themselves part of Russia, whose ancestors lived in a single country for centuries. There is nothing stronger than their determination to return to their true historical homeland.

For eight long years, people in Donbass were subjected to genocide, shelling and blockades; in Kherson and Zaporozhye, a criminal policy was pursued to cultivate hatred for Russia, for everything Russian. Now too, during the referendums, the Kiev regime threatened schoolteachers, women who worked in election commissions with reprisals and death. Kiev threatened millions of people who came to express their will with repression. But the people of Donbass, Zaporozhye and Kherson weren’t broken, and they had their say.

I want the Kiev authorities and their true handlers in the West to hear me now, and I want everyone to remember this: the people living in Lugansk and Donetsk, in Kherson and Zaporozhye have become our citizens, forever. (Applause.)

We call on the Kiev regime to immediately cease fire and all hostilities; to end the war it unleashed back in 2014 and return to the negotiating table. We are ready for this, as we have said more than once. But the choice of the people in Donetsk, Lugansk, Zaporozhye and Kherson will not be discussed. The decision has been made, and Russia will not betray it. (Applause.) Kiev’s current authorities should respect this free expression of the people’s will; there is no other way. This is the only way to peace.

We will defend our land with all the forces and resources we have, and we will do everything we can to ensure the safety of our people. This is the great liberating mission of our nation.

We will definitely rebuild the destroyed cities and towns, the residential buildings, schools, hospitals, theatres and museums. We will restore and develop industrial enterprises, factories, infrastructure, as well as the social security, pension, healthcare and education systems.

We will certainly work to improve the level of security. Together we will make sure that citizens in the new regions can feel the support of all the people of Russia, of the entire nation, all the republics, territories and regions of our vast Motherland. (Applause.)

Friends, colleagues,

Today I would like to address our soldiers and officers who are taking part in the special military operation, the fighters of Donbass and Novorossiya, those who went to military recruitment offices after receiving a call-up paper under the executive order on partial mobilisation, and those who did this voluntarily, answering the call of their hearts. I would like to address their parents, wives and children, to tell them what our people are fighting for, what kind of enemy we are up against, and who is pushing the world into new wars and crises and deriving blood-stained benefits from this tragedy.

Our compatriots, our brothers and sisters in Ukraine who are part of our united people have seen with their own eyes what the ruling class of the so-called West have prepared for humanity as a whole. They have dropped their masks and shown what they are really made of.

When the Soviet Union collapsed, the West decided that the world and all of us would permanently accede to its dictates. In 1991, the West thought that Russia would never rise after such shocks and would fall to pieces on its own. This almost happened. We remember the horrible 1990s, hungry, cold and hopeless. But Russia remained standing, came alive, grew stronger and occupied its rightful place in the world.

Meanwhile, the West continued and continues looking for another chance to strike a blow at us, to weaken and break up Russia, which they have always dreamed about, to divide our state and set our peoples against each other, and to condemn them to poverty and extinction. They cannot rest easy knowing that there is such a great country with this huge territory in the world, with its natural wealth, resources and people who cannot and will not do someone else’s bidding.

The West is ready to cross every line to preserve the neo-colonial system which allows it to live off the world, to plunder it thanks to the domination of the dollar and technology, to collect an actual tribute from humanity, to extract its primary source of unearned prosperity, the rent paid to the hegemon. The preservation of this annuity is their main, real and absolutely self-serving motivation. This is why total de-sovereignisation is in their interest. This explains their aggression towards independent states, traditional values and authentic cultures, their attempts to undermine international and integration processes, new global currencies and technological development centres they cannot control. It is critically important for them to force all countries to surrender their sovereignty to the United States.

In certain countries, the ruling elites voluntarily agree to do this, voluntarily agree to become vassals; others are bribed or intimidated. And if this does not work, they destroy entire states, leaving behind humanitarian disasters, devastation, ruins, millions of wrecked and mangled human lives, terrorist enclaves, social disaster zones, protectorates, colonies and semi-colonies. They don’t care. All they care about is their own benefit.

I want to underscore again that their insatiability and determination to preserve their unfettered dominance are the real causes of the hybrid war that the collective West is waging against Russia. They do not want us to be free; they want us to be a colony. They do not want equal cooperation; they want to loot. They do not want to see us a free society, but a mass of soulless slaves.

They see our thought and our philosophy as a direct threat. That is why they target our philosophers for assassination. Our culture and art present a danger to them, so they are trying to ban them. Our development and prosperity are also a threat to them because competition is growing. They do not want or need Russia, but we do. (Applause.)

I would like to remind you that in the past, ambitions of world domination have repeatedly shattered against the courage and resilience of our people. Russia will always be Russia. We will continue to defend our values and our Motherland.

The West is counting on impunity, on being able to get away with anything. As a matter of fact, this was actually the case until recently. Strategic security agreements have been trashed; agreements reached at the highest political level have been declared tall tales; firm promises not to expand NATO to the east gave way to dirty deception as soon as our former leaders bought into them; missile defence, intermediate-range and shorter-range missile treaties have been unilaterally dismantled under far-fetched pretexts.

And all we hear is, the West is insisting on a rules-based order. Where did that come from anyway? Who has ever seen these rules? Who agreed or approved them? Listen, this is just a lot of nonsense, utter deceit, double standards, or even triple standards! They must think we’re stupid.

Russia is a great thousand-year-old power, a whole civilisation, and it is not going to live by such makeshift, false rules. (Applause.)

It was the so-called West that trampled on the principle of the inviolability of borders, and now it is deciding, at its own discretion, who has the right to self-determination and who does not, who is unworthy of it. It is unclear what their decisions are based on or who gave them the right to decide in the first place. They just assumed it.

That is why the choice of the people in Crimea, Sevastopol, Donetsk, Lugansk, Zaporozhye and Kherson makes them so furiously angry. The West does not have any moral right to weigh in, or even utter a word about freedom of democracy. It does not and it never did.

Western elites not only deny national sovereignty and international law. Their hegemony has pronounced features of totalitarianism, despotism and apartheid. They brazenly divide the world into their vassals – the so-called civilised countries – and all the rest, who, according to the designs of today’s Western racists, should be added to the list of barbarians and savages. False labels like “rogue country” or “authoritarian regime” are already available, and are used to stigmatise entire nations and states, which is nothing new. There is nothing new in this: deep down, the Western elites have remained the same colonisers. They discriminate and divide peoples into the top tier and the rest.

We have never agreed to and will never agree to such political nationalism and racism. What else, if not racism, is the Russophobia being spread around the world? What, if not racism, is the West’s dogmatic conviction that its civilisation and neoliberal culture is an indisputable model for the entire world to follow? “You’re either with us or against us.” It even sounds strange.

Western elites are even shifting repentance for their own historical crimes on everyone else, demanding that the citizens of their countries and other peoples confess to things they have nothing to do with at all, for example, the period of colonial conquests.

It is worth reminding the West that it began its colonial policy back in the Middle Ages, followed by the worldwide slave trade, the genocide of Indian tribes in America, the plunder of India and Africa, the wars of England and France against China, as a result of which it was forced to open its ports to the opium trade. What they did was get entire nations hooked on drugs and purposefully exterminated entire ethnic groups for the sake of grabbing land and resources, hunting people like animals. This is contrary to human nature, truth, freedom and justice.

While we – we are proud that in the 20th century our country led the anti-colonial movement, which opened up opportunities for many peoples around the world to make progress, reduce poverty and inequality, and defeat hunger and disease.

To emphasise, one of the reasons for the centuries-old Russophobia, the Western elites’ unconcealed animosity toward Russia is precisely the fact that we did not allow them to rob us during the period of colonial conquests and forced the Europeans to trade with us on mutually beneficial terms. This was achieved by creating a strong centralised state in Russia, which grew and got stronger based on the great moral values​​of Orthodox Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Buddhism, as well as Russian culture and the Russian word that were open to all.

There were numerous plans to invade Russia. Such attempts were made during the Time of Troubles in the 17th century and in the period of ordeals after the 1917 revolution. All of them failed. The West managed to grab hold of Russia’s wealth only in the late 20th century, when the state had been destroyed. They called us friends and partners, but they treated us like a colony, using various schemes to pump trillions of dollars out of the country. We remember. We have not forgotten anything.

A few days ago, people in Donetsk and Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporozhye declared their support for restoring our historical unity. Thank you! (Applause.)

Western countries have been saying for centuries that they bring freedom and democracy to other nations. Nothing could be further from the truth. Instead of bringing democracy they suppressed and exploited, and instead of giving freedom they enslaved and oppressed. The unipolar world is inherently anti-democratic and unfree; it is false and hypocritical through and through.

The United States is the only country in the world that has used nuclear weapons twice, destroying the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. And they created a precedent.

Recall that during WWII the United States and Britain reduced Dresden, Hamburg, Cologne and many other German cities to rubble, without the least military necessity. It was done ostentatiously and, to repeat, without any military necessity. They had only one goal, as with the nuclear bombing of Japanese cities: to intimidate our country and the rest of the world.

The United States left a deep scar in the memory of the people of Korea and Vietnam with their carpet bombings and use of napalm and chemical weapons.

It actually continues to occupy Germany, Japan, the Republic of Korea and other countries, which they cynically refer to as equals and allies. Look now, what kind of alliance is that? The whole world knows that the top officials in these countries are being spied on and that their offices and homes are bugged. It is a disgrace, a disgrace for those who do this and for those who, like slaves, silently and meekly swallow this arrogant behaviour.

They call the orders and threats they make to their vassals Euro-Atlantic solidarity, and the creation of biological weapons and the use of human test subjects, including in Ukraine, noble medical research.

It is their destructive policies, wars and plunder that have unleashed today’s massive wave of migrants. Millions of people endure hardships and humiliation or die by the thousands trying to reach Europe.

They are exporting grain from Ukraine now. Where are they taking it under the guise of ensuring the food security of the poorest countries? Where is it going? They are taking it to the self-same European countries. Only five percent has been delivered to the poorest countries. More cheating and naked deception again.

In effect, the American elite is using the tragedy of these people to weaken its rivals, to destroy nation states. This goes for Europe and for the identities of France, Italy, Spain and other countries with centuries-long histories.

Washington demands more and more sanctions against Russia and the majority of European politicians obediently go along with it. They clearly understand that by pressuring the EU to completely give up Russian energy and other resources, the United States is practically pushing Europe toward deindustrialisation in a bid to get its hands on the entire European market. These European elites understand everything – they do, but they prefer to serve the interests of others. This is no longer servility but direct betrayal of their own peoples. God bless, it is up to them.

But the Anglo-Saxons believe sanctions are no longer enough and now they have turned to subversion. It seems incredible but it is a fact – by causing explosions on Nord Stream’s international gas pipelines passing along the bottom of the Baltic Sea, they have actually embarked on the destruction of Europe’s entire energy infrastructure. It is clear to everyone who stands to gain. Those who benefit are responsible, of course.

The dictates of the US are backed up by crude force, on the law of the fist. Sometimes it is beautifully wrapped sometimes there is no wrapping at all but the gist is the same – the law of the fist. Hence, the deployment and maintenance of hundreds of military bases in all corners of the world, NATO expansion, and attempts to cobble together new military alliances, such as AUKUS and the like. Much is being done to create a Washington-Seoul-Tokyo military-political chain. All states that possess or aspire to genuine strategic sovereignty and are capable of challenging Western hegemony, are automatically declared enemies.

These are the principles that underlie US and NATO military doctrines that require total domination. Western elites are presenting their neocolonialist plans with the same hypocrisy, claiming peaceful intentions, talking about some kind of deterrence. This evasive word migrates from one strategy to another but really only means one thing – undermining any and all sovereign centres of power.

We have already heard about the deterrence of Russia, China and Iran. I believe next in line are other countries of Asia, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, as well as current US partners and allies. After all, we know that when they are displeased, they introduce sanctions against their allies as well – against this or that bank or company. This is their practice and they will expand it. They have everything in their sights, including our next-door neighbours – the CIS countries.

At the same time, the West has clearly been engaged in wishful thinking for a long time. In launching the sanctions blitzkrieg against Russia, for example, they thought that they could once again line up the whole world at their command. As it turns out, however, such a bright prospect does not excite everyone – other than complete political masochists and admirers of other unconventional forms of international relations. Most states refuse to ”snap a salute“ and instead choose the sensible path of cooperation with Russia.

The West clearly did not expect such insubordination. They simply got used to acting according to a template, to grab whatever they please, by blackmail, bribery, intimidation, and convinced themselves that these methods would work forever, as if they had fossilised in the past.

Such self-confidence is a direct product not only of the notorious concept of exceptionalism – although it never ceases to amaze – but also of the real ”information hunger“ in the West. The truth has been drowned in an ocean of myths, illusions and fakes, using extremely aggressive propaganda, lying like Goebbels. The more unbelievable the lie, the quicker people will believe it – that is how they operate, according to this principle.

But people cannot be fed with printed dollars and euros. You can’t feed them with those pieces of paper, and the virtual, inflated capitalisation of western social media companies can’t heat their homes. Everything I am saying is important. And what I just said is no less so: you can’t feed anyone with paper – you need food; and you can’t heat anyone’s home with these inflated capitalisations – you need energy.

That is why politicians in Europe have to convince their fellow citizens to eat less, take a shower less often and dress warmer at home. And those who start asking fair questions like “Why is that, in fact?” are immediately declared enemies, extremists and radicals. They point back at Russia and say: that is the source of all your troubles. More lies.

I want to make special note of the fact that there is every reason to believe that the Western elites are not going to look for constructive ways out of the global food and energy crisis that they and they alone are to blame for, as a result of their long-term policy, dating back long before our special military operation in Ukraine, in Donbass. They have no intention of solving the problems of injustice and inequality. I am afraid they would rather use other formulas they are more comfortable with.

And here it is important to recall that the West bailed itself out of its early 20th century challenges with World War I. Profits from World War II helped the United States finally overcome the Great Depression and become the largest economy in the world, and to impose on the planet the power of the dollar as a global reserve currency. And the 1980s crisis – things came to a head in the 1980s again – the West emerged from it unscathed largely by appropriating the inheritance and resources of the collapsed and defunct Soviet Union. That’s a fact.

Now, in order to free itself from the latest web of challenges, they need to dismantle Russia as well as other states that choose a sovereign path of development, at all costs, to be able to further plunder other nations’ wealth and use it to patch their own holes. If this does not happen, I cannot rule out that they will try to trigger a collapse of the entire system, and blame everything on that, or, God forbid, decide to use the old formula of economic growth through war.

Russia is aware of its responsibility to the international community and will make every effort to ensure that cooler heads prevail.

The current neocolonial model is ultimately doomed; this much is obvious. But I repeat that its real masters will cling to it to the end. They simply have nothing to offer the world except to maintain the same system of plundering and racketeering.

They do not give a damn about the natural right of billions of people, the majority of humanity, to freedom and justice, the right to determine their own future. They have already moved on to the radical denial of moral, religious, and family values.

Let’s answer some very simple questions for ourselves. Now I would like to return to what I said and want to address also all citizens of the country – not just the colleagues that are in the hall – but all citizens of Russia: do we want to have here, in our country, in Russia, “parent number one, parent number two and parent number three” (they have completely lost it!) instead of mother and father? Do we want our schools to impose on our children, from their earliest days in school, perversions that lead to degradation and extinction? Do we want to drum into their heads the ideas that certain other genders exist along with women and men and to offer them gender reassignment surgery? Is that what we want for our country and our children? This is all unacceptable to us. We have a different future of our own.

Let me repeat that the dictatorship of the Western elites targets all societies, including the citizens of Western countries themselves. This is a challenge to all. This complete renunciation of what it means to be human, the overthrow of faith and traditional values, and the suppression of freedom are coming to resemble a “religion in reverse” – pure Satanism. Exposing false messiahs, Jesus Christ said in the Sermon on the Mount: “By their fruits ye shall know them.” These poisonous fruits are already obvious to people, and not only in our country but also in all countries, including many people in the West itself.

The world has entered a period of a fundamental, revolutionary transformation. New centres of power are emerging. They represent the majority – the majority! – of the international community. They are ready not only to declare their interests but also to protect them. They see in multipolarity an opportunity to strengthen their sovereignty, which means gaining genuine freedom, historical prospects, and the right to their own independent, creative and distinctive forms of development, to a harmonious process.

As I have already said, we have many like-minded people in Europe and the United States, and we feel and see their support. An essentially emancipatory, anti-colonial movement against unipolar hegemony is taking shape in the most diverse countries and societies. Its power will only grow with time. It is this force that will determine our future geopolitical reality.

Friends,

Today, we are fighting for a just and free path, first of all for ourselves, for Russia, in order to leave dictate and despotism in the past. I am convinced that countries and peoples understand that a policy based on the exceptionalism of whoever it may be and the suppression of other cultures and peoples is inherently criminal, and that we must close this shameful chapter. The ongoing collapse of Western hegemony is irreversible. And I repeat: things will never be the same.

The battlefield to which destiny and history have called us is a battlefield for our people, for the great historical Russia. (Applause.) For the great historical Russia, for future generations, our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We must protect them against enslavement and monstrous experiments that are designed to cripple their minds and souls.

Today, we are fighting so that it would never occur to anyone that Russia, our people, our language, or our culture can be erased from history. Today, we need a consolidated society, and this consolidation can only be based on sovereignty, freedom, creation, and justice. Our values ​​are humanity, mercy and compassion.

And I want to close with the words of a true patriot Ivan Ilyin: “If I consider Russia my Motherland, that means that I love as a Russian, contemplate and think, sing and speak as a Russian; that I believe in the spiritual strength of the Russian people. Its spirit is my spirit; its destiny is my destiny; its suffering is my grief; and its prosperity is my joy.”

Behind these words stands a glorious spiritual choice, which, for more than a thousand years of Russian statehood, was followed by many generations of our ancestors. Today, we are making this choice; the citizens of the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics and the residents of the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions have made this choice. They made the choice to be with their people, to be with their Motherland, to share in its destiny, and to be victorious together with it.

The truth is with us, and behind us is Russia!

(Applause.)

    This complete renunciation of what it means to be human, the overthrow of faith and traditional values, and the suppression of freedom are coming to resemble a “religion in reverse” – pure Satanism. Exposing false messiahs, Jesus Christ said in the Sermon on the Mount: “By their fruits ye shall know them.”

    What credibility can a Christian possibly have? If they are unable to see that their own religion, the basis of their worldview, is a rank hypocrisy and fantasy when interpreted as history? It is absurd to believe that Jesus Christ was a real person and that he did or said any of the things attributed to him in the New Testament. Putin cites the book of Matthew, which is a satire, as a source of moral authority. If Putin believes in the Sermon on the Mount, then why does he not turn the other cheek to his attacker? Does he think he gets to pick and choose when it comes to following the teachings of Christ?

    And if we are going to judge Messiahs by their fruit, how will judge Jesus Christ? His fruit to his original Jewish followers was the destruction of Jerusalem. His fruit to Rome was its downfall. Its fruit to Europe has been over 1000 years of pointless, fratricidal war all predicated on reading the scriptures with a straight face. Will its final fruit to humanity be WWIII? Christianity is already “religion in reverse”. Is nobody smart enough to take the joke and move on?

    Ukraine-Russia war: US army doctor and wife charged with Russia spying
    29 September 2022

    A US army major doctor and her wife, a civilian doctor, have been charged with a plot to leak information to the Russian government.

    Jamie Lee Henry and Anna Gabrielian are accused of planning to share confidential information about patients at a military hospital.

    The pair allegedly told an undercover FBI agent that they were motivated by patriotism for Russia.

    Putin speaks about Russia’s “greatness” in a Brioni jacket costing almost half a million Russian roubles
    — SUNDAY, 2 OCTOBER 2022, 01:22

    Russian dictator Vladimir Putin addressed the Russians from the stage of a concert organised in Moscow in honour of the occupation of part of the territory of Ukraine, wearing a jacket by Italian brand Brioni, costing approximately 8,305 US dollars.

    [MORE]

    Source: Verstka [Russian news outlet]; Russian TSUM [prestigious shopping centre in Moscow] website

    Details: Putin addressed the Russians from the stage wearing a Brioni jacket costing 435,000 roubles (approximately 8,305 US dollars).

    Media have found the jacket on the website of the Russian TSUM. It is said that Brioni is one of the favourite brands of the Russian dictator.

    It was also reported in the mass media that the “concert” was mostly attended by “extras” – people who were paid 800 roubles (13 US dollars) to attend or were sent away from their place of work. Some said they were given flyers at work and “asked to come.”

    A group of students explained that they were “rounded up” and taken to Manezhnaya Square. They did not know what would happen at the concert and who would perform. Students were told only that they might have to listen to “Putin’s stand-up show”.

    A video with dozens of buses in Moscow that brought Russians to the concert was released on the internet.

    Background:

    In March 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin addressed the Russians from the stage of a concert organised in Moscow in honour of the eighth anniversary of the illegal occupation of Crimea and in support of the war in Ukraine wearing a Loro Piana jacket worth almost one-and-a -half million roubles (almost 25,000 US dollars).

    It has since become known that the LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy) group of companies, which owns the Loro Piana brand, has stopped supplying products to Russia.

Idumeans are Talmudists which brought their religion from Babylon, and is used to dominate the governments of earth, after hundreds of years of trying, finally are reaching their goal, subjugation of the entire world., by means of usury, money changers, and bankers. They are so clever, as describing themselves as ‘the chosen’ and are rather the hated, since ‘Jacob I have loved, and Esau I hated’ just see how they are trying to criminalize everything as ‘hate’, because they know they are hated. what other group fights ‘hate’, but the Idumeans?

    I uploaded the 55 page pdf English transcript of Putin’s speech at the Valdai Conference. I think it’s important to read and also to watch him on the video in order to recognize how much the West is distorting who he is. He’s a very calm cool and collected speaker who engages politely with his interviewer and also interacts with his audience. He even shows a sense of humor. He’s absolutely the antithesis of Hitler, who ranted and raved like a maniac. I think we denigrate and belittle Putin unjustly and to our very great peril:

    Putin was also extremely complacent bordering on arrogance, in early summer he had the Ukrainian army on the back foot so what does he do – he says the army need a holiday and there’s a big pause in action.

    Things are never the same again

    At the moment it’s unclear if Russia will be able to win this Ukraine has mobilized a silly amount of troops maybe a million or more and they don’t mind losing a few thousand here and there.

    Russia by comparison after its mobilization will only have about 500,000

    The key takeaway, there are many in this seminal speech, is the first sentence of the last paragraph:

    Behind these words stands a glorious spiritual choice, which, for more than a thousand years of Russian statehood, was followed by many generations of our ancestors. Today, we are making this choice; the citizens of the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics and the residents of the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions have made this choice. They made the choice to be with their people, to be with their Motherland, to share in its destiny, and to be victorious together with it.

    We are at the cusp of a New World or the End of the World!

    BTW, to the first commentator on this article, when Putin has lifted all of the Russians out of extreme poverty, then he is the greatest statesman of the century. Until then Xi is the greatest.

    Also, FDR’s in/famous “Day of Infamy” speech was a sham as he and the Americans already knew that the Japs were going to attack Pearl Harbor. In fact, the US oil embargo against Japan was designed to provoke such a response. They purposefully removed all the new military warships out of Pearl Harbor and left the old vessels for the Japs to destroy.

    Not only does Putin fail to name the Nose, he also fails to name the Red Rapist Russian Army. Take this paragraph as one example, but there are more.

    Recall that during WWII the United States and Britain reduced Dresden, Hamburg, Cologne and many other German cities to rubble, without the least military necessity. It was done ostentatiously and, to repeat, without any military necessity. They had only one goal, as with the nuclear bombing of Japanese cities: to intimidate our country and the rest of the world.

    Actually it was Stalin who demanded that his western ((Allies)) bomb Dresden to smithereens. The problem was that as soon as the Rapist Army entered Poland and then Germany, all the Red Rapist “soldiers” went on a rampage of murdering, raping and looting. I put “soldiers” in quotes because they were actually little more that slaves for ZOG, at that point in time Russia was the USSRZ (United Soviet Socialist Republic of ZOG). In early 1945, The Red Rapist Army was extremely vulnerable to the rapid advances of the Western ZOG army under Patton, who was threatening to beat the Red Rapist Army to Berlin and perhaps even farther. Ultimately the US Army was forced to withdraw from Eastern Europe and had to turn all of it over to the Russian Rapists. The movie Hellstorm does an interesting depiction of what happened.

    If we want to discuss actions that were “without the least military necessity“, we can look at the way Stalin threatened to murder and torture the entire family of any Red Rapist “soldier” who had the temerity to surrender after being encircled in a cauldron due to the ineptitude of Russian Rapist Generals and their cryto-Jew Tyrant, Joe “Son of a Jew” Stalin. Russian slave-soldiers captured alive and un-shot by Jewish Soviet barrier guards begged the Germans to declare them KIA so that their families would escape retribution. We also have Stalin’s refusal to accept the Geneva Convention which forced the Germans to treat at least some of the Red Russian Rapist POW’s with the same disregard for life that the Russians treated any German POW’s.

    And this really gets to the nub of the entire issue: Sure, Zato is just the Rothschild Army, and the US is just the Rothschild Golem, but what about Putin’s Russia? If we want to point fingers back into history, we can provide ample examples of Russian blood thirst and sadism from their actions throughout Eastern Europe starting in 1944, and in Ukraine during the holodomor. One of the main reasons Nato was formed and that Nato can still have a small semblance of credibility today is because of the behaviour of the Red Rapist Army and their sadistic Jewish kommisars throughout this period.

    So to summarize, in precisely the same way that the chickens of European resentment may come home to roost for America for the sabotage of the Nordstream pipelines, so can one also say that the enmity that Eastern Europe exhibits towards Russia that made the entire Ukrainian civil war possible is the payback for Russian attitudes and behaviour during the Cold War. All the confused and completely meaningless ranting about “Nazis” further distorts the issue of WWII war crimes. Putin doesn’t want to mention any of that, and it is one of the reasons we can consider his speech to be just more tit-for-tat propaganda.

    He has no need to name them because he probably understands that the battle of our age is a battle against evil in the west and not a battle against evil Jews in the west.

    The future battle is already won in fact and Mr Putin alludes to that better future in the chapter right after he says ‘friends’ but what he doesn’t know about is how long it will take before it is won….but some have a better idea.

    In hundreds or thousands of years from now this age will be remembered as an age of victory for good over evil,as it was always pre-determined to be in a world where ‘everything’ has always ‘as a matter of fact’ been pre-determined and set in stone for the eventual evolutionarily good of the human animal species.

    But the Anglo-Saxons believe sanctions are no longer enough and now they have turned to subversion.

    The Anglo-Saxons? What a transparent non-sequitur!

    Why would the Anglo-Saxons of the USA destroy themselves through mass immigration, 24/7 antiwhite hate propaganda (which would amount to a self-hate program), wars that do absolutely nothing to benefit Anglo-Saxons, and an economy built on nothing that obviously works against them?

    In other words, why would they destroy themselves through invite, invade, and in-debt to the world foreign, domestic and economic policies? And where ARE these Anglo-Saxons?

    Here’s a list of just some of the people currently in positions of power in the United States:
    Chief of Staff (Klain), State (Blinken, Sherman, Nuland), Treasury (Yellen), CDC (Walensky), DHS (Mayorkas), Cybersecurity (Neuberger), CIA (Cohen), Council of Economic Advisors (Bernstein), FCC (Rosenworcel), SEC (Gensler), Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism (Lipstadt), NSC Border Czar (Jacobson), Council on Gender Policy (Klein), Covid Response (Zients), U. S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (Kleinbaum), U.S. Ambassador to the E.U. (Gitenstein), SGOTUS (Emhoff), Senate (Schumer). Attorney General Merrick Garland.

    Notice any Anglo-Saxons? Yeah. Me either. You’d have an easier time finding Waldo! He might as well have fingered the Pilgrims.Next thing you know he’ll be talking about how Russians agents spotted the Mayflower sailing the Baltic Sea just before the explosion. What an idiot. Then again, he is a politician.

    The in your face facts of the matter make that part of Putin’s speech, and not just that part, so laughably self-refuting, not to mention slanderous and stupid, that it’s sure to come back and bite him on the ass at some point. It would be like blaming the first Christians in what is now Israel for the present day treatment of the Palestinians. But let’s not tempt him.

    In fact, not only is that part of his speech self-refuting, it’s self-discrediting as well.

    How can a leader protect his people if he won’t even allow himself to properly identify his enemy?

    Worse, if he pins the tail on a largely non-existent donkey, so to speak, in order to avoid offending the very people who are not only now attacking him, but have long since displaced, replaced and disgraced the Anglo-Saxons that he’s blaming.

    And now that ethnic group is attacking anyone even remotely associated genetically or culturally, that is to say racially, with Anglo-Saxons, ie; whites in general, at the same time they are attacking Russia! While posing as courageous, Putin’s showing his cowardice at the very moment when his courage is needed the most.

    And doesn’t he know that the only two winners of WWII (especially in terms of conquered territory) were Zionism and Communism, ie; Jewish Supremacy Inc.? Then again, maybe TUR isn’t available in Russia. Because if he read what this website has to offer he’d know.

    Also, doesn’t he remember what the man who is arguably Russia’s greatest cultural hero (and certainly a timely inspiration to all who prefer freedom to tyranny), said about the Bolsheviks?

    You must understand. The leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. Solzhenitsyn

    Back to Putin’s speech:

    It is clear to everyone who stands to gain. Those who benefit are responsible, of course.

    Wow! Talk about stating the obvious, and in such a clumsy and redundant manner. In other words, “The ones who stand to gain are the ones who benefit.” Moron. What was he doing? Channeling Kamala Harris? Any side in a conflict is responsible for their own victory. Who engages in any conflict with the hope of not benefitting? Putin?

    If it is clear to everyone then why are you blaming “the United States” and even more absurdly, “Anglo-Saxons”, when the hostile elite who control that country are destroying it and erasing its history and what they don’t erase they are slandering just as they are doing to Putin and his country?!

    Maybe Paul Craig Roberts was right all along after all about Putin and his strategic blunders. Say what you want about PCR, if not entirely on target he was at least pointing in the right direction. Put was fumbling and looking a lot like Trump playing his magial game of 4-D Chess.

    I mean, here’s a man who is blasting the West in a speech after spending years trying to play by their rules, only to be played like a fiddle by “the West.” Oh, I’m sorry, Anglo-Saxons! What a buffoon!

    It’s obvious from this perspective that his attempt to blast the West is merely cover for the fact that he blew it. He waited too long to take Ukraine. The result? He got played and humiliated. So, in effect, he is responsible for the bombing of his own pipeline, in as much as his delay made that possible. True, they might have attacked it anyway. But at least by then he would have given them a real good reason to.

    In any event, if he doesn’t follow through on this speech and what he said in 2018 – that there will not be a world without Russia – then he’s finished. He’s got a lot on his plate. No question. And the first thing is to properly identifying his enemy. Spoiler Alert Mr. Putin! It ain’t the Anglo-Saxons!

  46. Although i agree with his objection to all the perverts and idiots running the west currently, they are not running Russia at all. That is no excuse for invading the Neighbor with tanks, which is a Russian Proclivity, Ask the invaded people surrounded by tanks to vote whether they would like to join Russia. And 90% voted yes. What a surprise. Who would vote no under such circumstances? Not me even if I were a Ukrainian nationalist. This is what Hitler did in Austria and Czechoslovakia in 1937 and again in 1939 when Germany and Russia invaded Poland to start WW2. Vald hates it when this inconvenient fact is pointed out, Hitler played Stalin and 25,000,000 Russians died. This invasion is a blunder.

    Tsar Bomba, the largest hydrogen bomb ever detonated by any nation was ~50 megatons. Its size: (from Wiki)

    Mass 27,000 kg (60,000 lb)
    Length 8 m (26 ft)
    Diameter 2.1 m (6 ft 11 in)

    Originally Soviet scientists designed a ~100 megaton bomb Tsar Bomba. But they were really concerned that that large a bomb might start some kind of runaway explosion in the atmosphere with unpredictable results, so they scale it down.

    In any case, highly unlikely a submarine would be carrying a ( 6-foot diameter, 26-foot long , 60,000 pound) X 2 torpedo. But, it is technically possible.

    I agree. In fact what I think he should have done in February instead of a military invasion of Ukraine is the same he is doing now, or the first stage, declaring those territories under the military protection of the Russian Armed Forces. And then, at the first artillery grenade, missile landing on them I would have flattened an entire city block in Kiev, preferably the one where the Presidential palace is located. And I’d have gone on like that. One bomb falls on the Donbass, one Kiev city block goes up in smoke. The Israeli way. No need for any Russian soldier risking his life, one Ukrainian city block for each bomb fallen into the Donbass, that would have been my way out of the situation.

I can practically hear you hypocrites wailing away. How can you defend your religion if you can’t even comprehend it? What’s going on in the book of Matthew – does Jesus Christ not mean what he says? Are the teachings of Christ not meant for Christians? Why is it so easy for Christians to ignore the central message of their religion? That message being that the kingdom comes after defeat and death. The MEEK will inherit the Earth, according to Jesus. Not the valiant.

    “…Monsanto gas poison”…Precisely. This issue is something I’ve brought up several times on this and another free-speech blog. Taking it a bit further, it is an excellent reason for Russia to keep going when they make the breakthrough. They need to destroy all the GMO facilities on those at least 15,000 hectares of some of the richest farmland on the planet.

    When a new, but territorially reduced Ukraine government is established, it should be with a Russian proviso that all farmlands ceded for cheap to Western “investor class” corporations should be seized by the government and turned over to farm-folk who pledge to uphold traditional farming methods.

    GMO insanity has already done massive damages to Iowa (almost the entire state) and other corn-belt water supplies…that’s not even considering soil and air pollution by chemical-warfare farming practices here in the U$$A.

    What credibility can a Christian possibly have? If they are unable to see that their own religion, the basis of their worldview, is rank hypocrisy and fantasy when interpreted as history.

    I arrived here ready to argue with you. Seeing farther down the thread that a “gay troll” had been set upon by presumably Conservative posters, I figured he’d stuck up for the D.C. neo-Marxists against Putin, defending outrages like the transgender myth and the resultant puberty-blocking and surgical mutilation of children. But now that I’ve read your comment I see you’ve only told the truth.

    “Hypocrisy and fantasy” are words that supremely pertain to Judeo-Christianity! The superstition’s self-abnegating altruism has necessitated hypocrisy: an actual adherence to it must unravel societies, making them doormats to anyone bent on exploiting them; and it’s through being false to their creed, through being monsters of falsity, that the Europeans were able to cut so great a figure on the world stage. And from start to finish, from Genesis to Revelation, Judeo-Christianity is clearly myth and fable, not to mention psychopathology.

    It is absurd to believe that Jesus Christ was a real person….

    Of course. That figure described in the Gospels is identified with a bevy of incredible events. He’s not less fantastical than any character in Aesop, Hans Christian (lol) Andersen or the Brothers Grimm. The Judean snake-oil peddlers, who pushed their creedal opiate in Europe, stressed faith because the only way people can believe in such shite is through “having faith”–through willful belief, believing for no better reason than that one wants to!

    If Putin believes in the Sermon on the Mount, then why does he not turn the other cheek to his attacker?

    Exactly. Another instance of Judeo-Christian hypocrisy. Well, thank Pantheos for hypocrisy, because without it “Christian Europe” (nominally Christian Europe) could never have established a Global Hegemony. But how valuable is a creed if one must be untrue to it in order to thrive? Europe became great despite Judeo-Christianity, not in any way because of it.

    But I hope I won’t surprise you by saying that I’m on Putin’s side in this struggle. Though everything you’ve said is true, his attackers are the supreme, implacable and deadly enemies of Western Civ and of the Caucasian ethnic/genetic mega-cluster. I want them defeated.

    They’ve brought this war on Russia, even as they wage war on all Whites in the rest of Europe and in America. Not being a believer in Satan, I can’t ascribe any metaphysical truth to Putin’s assertion that the Western aggressors are Satanist. But if “satanism” can be taken to mean a cancerous predation on humans, the term fits.

    I’m pulling for Putin and Russia not because they’re so noble, but because their foes–who are our foes as well–are so unutterably and incomparably foul.

    It is obvious that Putin has pegged the Deep State. But I doubt he would agree with your, following, idiotic view of science.

    but let’s look a little closer at this,. what are the problems the world and the human race face today:

    over population, caused and exacerbated by modern science. no modern science, no overpopulation. yes it was a hard slog and people died young but there was no way to breed 8,000,000,000 human beings without modern science. what are you going to do with them all? don’t worry bill gates and fauci have a plan, modern science at work again.

    “atoms for peace” how’s that working out? granted not the best from of nuclear power available, but the one we spread all over the world to build the stockpiles of plutonium necessary to insure the destruction of the human race, hey but that solves the overpopulation problem, i guess.

    destruction of the environment, before the advent of modern science, humans could degrade environment only to the point, of the end their particular culture, the environment could then rapidly recover. look at the jungles that have grown around and over mezo american sites, half of them have not even been found. the loss of habitats has reduced the number of other species significantly, north america has lost over 90% of it’s songbird in the last hundred years.

    in fact i’m having a hard time thinking of how modern science does anything at all for the planet as a whole, human beings are for the most part self serving narcissists who feel they are different and better than the rest of the species on our beautiful mother planet.

I mean, he even freezes before Western journalists slamming him left and right, as his press conference with Trump showed in plain sight. Here’s one photo [3] of Putin being “tough” on Angela, not long after Germany openly admitted lying about Navalny to put more pressure on Russia. I guess he was just being nice with his liberal globalist classmates [1] – the ones he went to the same training course with I guess [2]?

    [1] in 2019, Klaus Schwab spoke of Putin (1952), Tony Blair (1953), and Angela Merkel (1954) as his Young Global Leaders back in the 90s.

    [2] In 2014, Putin carelessly bragged about meeting Henry Kissinger in the early 90s, and by revealing that, unmasked himself. At the time, Putin was just one unknown KGB apparatchik. One can’t help but wonder: why would a former US Secretary of State, especially one of such high globalist profile, meet with some KGB nobody like Putin? Perhaps, grooming of the new puppet to “lead” Russia?

    If he succeeds in moving the Russian Armed Forces to use tactical nuclear weapons to defend the Federation’s territorial integrity, he forces Xi’s hand:

    The following short quote/comment [1], IMHO captures perfectly Putin’s Western-manager / liberal-globalist style of handling, or rather mishandling, of pretty much everything including Ukraine, as follows:

    Quote [1]: It looks like Putin and his close advisors are trying to run a war on neoliberal lines. That relies on extreme parsimony, a just-enough just-in-time approach to logistics, reliance on managerial magic, a contempt for the enemy that works in the enemy’s favour, and an indifference to the wellbeing of the people doing the heavy lifting (not to mention the people abandoned in the withdrawals). It’s a corporate mentality, based on fantasies crafted by crackpot intellectuals.

    Putin should name the nose and attack muh Israel instead of Ukraine. I bet that would stop this tiny band of thieves, crooks,deceivers , murderers, sex trafficking, maniacal, criminals from their wicked doings. Putin should also tell the world how Bolshevik Jews killed millions of Ukrainians, Russians, etc., and (((who))) really did 911. He should tell.of the Jews plan to destroy ALL White nations including America.

    Exactly! Couldn’t agree more. He should, in short, properly identify the enemy. This is the point I made in my comment above (49).

    I’ve been following his speeches, etc. with great interest and even high hopes (though always with a healthy grain of salt). But blaming the Anglo-Saxons as he does in this speech was just a bizarre, though not inexplicable, brain fart. It’s not just that he lost his nerve at a critical moment (though that’s bad enough), it’s that he blame-shifted, and on a virtually non-existent enemy, in front of the whole world at a time when he pretty much has their complete attention. In short, he blew it.

    Attacking him as I did in my comment has so far triggered at least one thin-skinned Putin fanboy. Perhaps there will be more. I was certainly expecting it. So be it. Of course, not being able to argue they just click the Troll button (btw, in TUR Land, being labelled a Troll with no corresponding argument should be considered a victory and a compliment. It means you struck a nerve and left them triggered and speechless).

    It’s kind of sad, but mostly funny, to watch these fanboys cling to him as if he even knows they exist or cares at all. He doesn’t. And though I don’t doubt his sincerity in terms of Mother Russia, it’s hard to see well he can defend them if he continues to refuse to identity his enemy and instead blames another group that in terms of power politics doesn’t even exist anymore.

    Words are cheap and great-sounding speeches, in most cases never written by “leaders” like Putin, are close to never followed by action – as most of us know. That’s the main principle of most deceivers and/or traitors like Putin – say what you know people like to hear, and then do whatever you want behind the scenes without talking about it. Dmitry Medvedev does the exact same thing, although he sounds even more extreme, and then he withdraws into his turtle shell, so to speak.

    Have you asked yourself, what has Putin done in the last 22 years, aside from making Russia a Western colony for cheap energy and other natural resources, and many other things – more on that below, before this Pipeline SMO put an end to a large part of it. Large part and not all of it considering that both are out of commission? Yes, for it’ll take much more action to stop Putin from being the most reliable partner to his “partners”. He has many ways to energy-wise please the very same countries that are actively working to destroy Russia – NS1 & NS2 were just one of those.

    Let’s see Putin’s “successes” (this list is not complete by ANY means):

    Kept providing cheap energy and all other resources for 20+ years. Kept exporting rocket engines West cannot not produce. Kept allowing them to use Russian Space Station MIR-2 (aka “International” Space Station), and even Uber-ing US astronauts back and forth as they could not even do that. Kept putting EU satellites into orbit as they could not do that themselves, i.e. in spite of German “Engineering”. Kept allowing Erdogan to humiliate him and Russia repeatedly (killing a diplomat, killing pilots over Syria and over Armenia, and who knows how many Russian foot soldiers in Syria, not respecting any agreements in Syria, exporting drones to Ukraine, not paying back huge loans given to Turkey by Russia, etc.). Kept helping the West harm Russia’s true friends and true partners like Belarus, Armenia, Serbia, etc. Helped NATO destroy Libya. Helped US occupy Serbia in 2000. Voted numerous times in the UNSC the way US wanted and got nothing in return but scorn (e.g. multiple UNSC sanctions votes against N.K.). Kept making enemies for Russia just to please NATO. Kept repeatedly asking for Russia’s NATO membership even after Bill Clinton laughed in his face as reply. Kept saying that Russia needs to integrate into Western systems. Kept saying that the difference between Russia and the West is just semantics. Kept saying that he has nothing against US being the boss of the world with Russia as its trusted sidekick. How many times has he mentioned or asked for those $350B confiscated to be returned? He even brought flowers and smiles to that dull and soulless Angela, after Expansion-Eastward-Again-Nazi Germany openly admitted lying about Navalny to put more pressure on Russia. Etc. etc. etc.

    Putin took over Russia that was destitute, pillaged, and pilloried and then continued to keep it so. How many oligarchs has he arrested, and how much stolen was nationalized? E.g. Chubais, one of the most hated people in Russia, main organizer of the loot, was kept in power by Putin for 22 years, until he left on its own, never facing any charges.

    The list of Putin’s treacheries seems endless. Just ask yourself, if the situation was the exact opposite, what would West do? E.g. if Russians were freezing, and EU/USA had all the gas Russians needed – what would they do? Exactly.

    So, let’s face it – Putin is a traitor to Russia – one clueless and spineless narcissist, way over his head in global politics, and 5th-column liberal globalist.

    And whether one has a sword, an AR-15 or an ICBM–

    Matthew 5:39: “….I say unto you, you shall not resist evil; but whoever smites your right cheek, turn the other cheek to him also.”

    Matthew 5:44: “But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you.”

    I Corinthians 10:24: “No one should seek their own good, but the good of others.”

    Philippians
    2: 3: “….in humility value others above yourself.”

    II Corinthians 5:15: “And He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves.”

    Barf, here is the slave morality’s gist: “And if anyone would sue you, and take your tunic, let him have your cloak also” and “And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles”Matthew 5:40,41–in other words, let your enemy shove a slivery broomstick up your ass: the more you bless and love him the more righteous you are LOL….the more deserving of a post-dated check for an eternity with Jewsus and Pharisee Saul of Tarsus.

    I am a straight White Christian man. Putin’s enemies are my enemies.

    One who feels hatred toward, intends injury to, or opposes another; a foe.

    I am a straight White Euroamerican and European man, and I agree with you that in this case Putin’s enemies are our enemies–the very worst and most dangerous enemies of our Civilization.

    But your admirable loyalty to a fellow Europe-descended man, Putin, isn’t in accordance with your identifying as “Christian.” In a Judeo-Christian book, Matthew, the alleged Messiah, the Judean accused of being “King of the Jews,” is quoted as saying

    You have heard that it was said, “You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.” But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you….

    I do hope you’ll continue to be false to this obvious recipe for becoming underlings and slaves. Hypocritical Judeo-Christians are infinitely preferable to earnest ones; and such people did make Europe great again.

    But embodying falsity has insidious side-effects. Nor should we need to be untrue to a creed in order to be warriors who fiercely defend “me & mine.” There are creeds meant for the self-loving White man, such as Pierce’s Cosmotheism and Klassen’s Creativity, which are very much in accordance with–indeed which positively enjoin–defeating enemies by any means necessary. I hope you’ll go there.

    I think I am starting to see what the end game regarding Ukraine might be. I think that Russia’s intentions all along were quite noble vis-a-vis their neighbour.

    Russia’s intentions from the get go were to turn Ukraine into another Switzerland. Follow me here please. For such an endeavor, the optics are very important. What’s one of the most important geographical features of Switzerland? It is the fact that it doesn’t have a sea.

    So, if we want Ukraine to resemble Switzerland – first order of business is that they have to be cut off from the sea. This will have some added benefits too. We have all heard about so called off-shore accounts. Ukraine, being full of thieves – as it is, especially among their oligarchs – has experienced large cash outflows to those off-shore accounts.

    Therefore, if Ukraine doesn’t have a shore, there won’t be any off-shore accounts. It all fits in. Finally, in order to make Ukraine resemble Switzerland as much as possible, they would have to be cut down in size. At present time Ukraine is about 15 times bigger than Switzerland.

    That has to change, and I am sure that the Russians are aware of this discrepancy. So I expect from them, once they are done with Ukraine – if they don’t make them disappear from the map completely, then at least they should make them closely resemble Switzerland – size-wise.

    Phibbs: I wish Putin would name the Nose: It is the dirty, filthy, tribal, money-worshiping, smarmy, arrogant, spoiled, pushy, Gentile-hating, plutocratic, cunning, scheming, manipulative, deceptive, hyper-hypocritical, treacherous children of Satan (Jews) who dominate the West.

    I find it most regrettable–for everyone concerned, including thoughtless Jews (who saw at the tree branch they sit on–that this statement is essentially true, except for the silly part about children of “Satan.” I say this as a European and Euroamerican who’s hoped for reconciliation between Jews and White non-Jews, who’s made political gestures toward it, and who’s had more than a few Jewish friends and been close enough to bed more than his fair share of Jewesses.

    From long observing Western Jews and Jewish socio-political machinations, it’s long been clear to me that Jewish hatred of the Europe-descended has become reflexive and instinctive, and that Jews will stop at nothing to gratify that hatred. Their being those things that Phibbs says–scheming, manipulative, deceptive, hyper-hypocritical, Gentile-hating–is simply reality .

    It may be that Putin will have nothing to lose by identifying his assailants’ vanguard, and I hope he does.

    ….though the money that [Ron Unz] made was by doing business with other Jews and not with 70-IQ WNs.

    No, sorry, the 70-IQers are negroes, not White Nationalists–you know, the critters which Jews have incited, funded and weaponized against Whites, as when in 2020 627 Jewish organizations declared support for Black Lies Matter and hundreds of domestic terror-attacks featuring arson and mass robbery, ostensibly because a worthless black criminal and doper died from a combo of fentanyl and the stresses of struggling against legitimate arrest.

    Matthew is not a Judeo-Christian book for the simple reason there is no such thing as “Judeo-Christian”. The Talmud is the supreme law of Judaism and it is explicitly anti-Christian. It was a response to Christianity. It marshalled all the hate to be found in the Torah (and there is a shitload) and concentrated it on Jesus and his followers. The existence of the Talmud, in fact, is how one knows Jesus really existed and was really divinely inspired.

    Also, the only Judean among the attendees at the Last Supper was Judas Iscariot. Jesus was a Galilean.

    Tacitus was a Roman senator in the time of Nero and the Great Fire of Rome in 64 AD.

    No one in Germany is going to be convinced by his words, aside from some Die Linke DDR nostalgists.

    Even the most left wing pols in the US don’t call the conquest of the Americas a “genocide”, its something relegated to leftist academics. The natives of these continents (theoretical Solutreans from Europe aside) were hunter-gatherers, cannibals and of the civilizations which existed, all practiced human sacrifice. The destruction of this pagan tyranny was unambiguously good. Most natives were given the opportunity to convert and assimilate, and many did. But then as now those that did were cast out as traitors by their own people. The large majority of deaths were from disease in a society where germ theory had yet to be developed.

    And that is somehow not to notice that the expansion of the Russian state was not also even more blood-soaked.

    We are not here for “Antifa minus the troons”.

  146. We call on the Kiev regime to immediately cease fire and all hostilities; to end the war it unleashed back in 2014 and return to the negotiating table. We are ready for this, as we have said more than once. But the choice of the people in Donetsk, Lugansk, Zaporozhye and Kherson will not be discussed.

    It won’t be discussed because everyone knows it is fraudulent.

    His explanations don’t add up as usual. They don’t have any consistent logic or coherency.

    Zaporizhzhia and Kherson were not self-declared republics.

    Taking Donetsk and Lugansk and adding them to Russia isn’t what they wanted. They wanted to be independent and Russia recognized them as such before the war.

    So to summarize, in precisely the same way that the chickens of European resentment may come home to roost for America for the sabotage of the Nordstream pipelines, so can one also say that the enmity that Eastern Europe exhibits towards Russia that made the entire Ukrainian civil war possible is the payback for Russian attitudes and behaviour during the Cold War.

    very excellent points

    Because I support Russia in this, and because so many of the things Putin said were true, (but not all), I wish Russia and Russians would desist with this insane lie that the Red Army liberated anyone.

    Do they think the Eastern Europeans don’t know who enslaved and persecuted and murdered so many of their people? Do they think that pretending that the Red Army “liberated” Eastern Europe, will make it so? Especially those hated monuments to the Red Army rapists and “glorious worker’s paradise’ that Russia (stupidly and fatuously) demands Eastern Europe maintain.

    At the root of these developments are conflicting interpretations of the aftermath of World War II. Soviet-era war monuments tend to refer to liberation from the Nazis and the defence of the freedom and independence of Eastern European states. But for many people in Eastern Europe, this liberation was followed by the imposition of pro-Soviet communist regimes and the long-term presence of the Soviet military in Eastern Europe, something experienced more as an occupation.

    It is ironic that these monuments, oriented as they were towards future generations – in part, towards those who now decide their fate – are today far more likely to provoke antipathy towards Russia than goodwill. Whether based on genuine popular resentment or whipped up by nationalist governments, the treatment of these monuments as symbolic markers of Soviet imperialism has been a continuous source of strain in relations with Russia.

    “I am deeply outraged by the stunt by a Gdansk Fine Arts Academy student, who has defiled by his pseudo-art the memory of 600,000 Soviet servicemen who gave their lives in the fight for the freedom and the independence of Poland,” Russian ambassador Alexander Alexeyev said in a statement Tuesday.

    https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2013/10/16/russia-condemns-polish-artist-over-statue-of-soviet-soldier-raping-a-woman-a28663

    imagine if you can something more Orwellian than speaking of the Red Army (already having occupied half of Poland by force, and slaughtering their officers and poets and priests and intellectuals by the tens of thousands), talking of ‘fighting for the ‘freedom and independence of Poland’.

    Note to Alexander Alexeyev: the Polish people are not stupid. They remember what the Soviets did to them. They were enslaved for generations, I think they still remember.

    It’s a good speech, but Putin should not be lamenting “the tragic collapse of the Soviet Union”. The people of Eastern Europe don’t feel the same nostalgia for a regime of terror and domination over their lands, and their nations, and their destiny.

    Does Putin not comprehend this obvious fact, or doing so, must pay lip service to this idiocy, in order to mollify the Russian ego, which finds solace in the lie that Russia liberated Poland, or Estonia, or anywhere else when Russia was also under the thrall of the fiend.

    It should be a time of great emancipation all around! No longer is Russia under the fiend’s cruel boot. No longer does Poland languish under Soviet occupation, rather, (and this is the point) it has chosen instead ZOG occupation, like the Baltic states and others, BECAUSE Russia refuses to admit the Red Army were not liberators, but just different occupiers.
    And because Russia refuses to admit that, Eastern Europe feel menaced and threatened.

    Is that rocket science?

    As I said, Russia is the good guy here, and I’m glad they absorbed the Russian speaking territories from ZOG. I hope they go further and take Odessa and more.

    But if they would just leave the God damn idiocy of the Red Army as liberators, to the dust bins of history’s many lies, then Eastern Europe could breath a huge sigh of relief, and begin to treat Russia as a partner, as Putin so often characterizes the relationships.

    Insisting that the Soviet period was good, might be salve to the Russian soul, but it alienates Poland and Ukraine and all the former satellite states. And brings hostility and strife and hatred.

    End it simply with words. They cost you nothing. No one is asking for reparations. The Russian people suffered terribly too under the Soviet domination of their lands.

    Speak to Eastern Europe as brothers and sisters who all endured that terrible time.

    Yes, Uncle Sam is a (the) fiend. Yes, he’s a ((Satanic hegemon)) and will not be stopped but by force. Russia is doing God’s work, and her soldiers are heroes. So why add to the task of liberating Ukraine of ZOG, with preposterous absurdities about the great Soviet era, when it only creates hatred for Russia, (and is incredibly stupid, no one believes it for a second).

    I’ve been saying that for years, but once the shooting started, I wanted to support Russia fully, but now with these paeans to the Soviet era, even as Russia is being menaced by (((NATO))) all over Eastern Europe, I simply find those sentiments as extremely counter productive.

    Eastern Europe suffered under communist slavery, and it doesn’t want to go back. Yes, Russia is no longer a communist threat, but the fact that Russia insists that Eastern Europe continue to honor the Soviet abominations that profane their sacred lands, there will be (understandable) hatred.

    Which could all be undone with some simple gracious sentiments, that wouldn’t cost anyone anything.

    All in all, good speech. But also, very flawed. Calling the West “racists”, is juvenile pandering. Pretending that ((Soviet)) Russia was innocent vis-a-vis Poland or the Soviet horrors unleashed on Ukraine and so many others, is a non-starter for Eastern Europe, when they know better.

    You notice how the British system initially prosecutes the man who came up with the phrasebook for causing disorder, but in the next scene, British society has accommodated itself to the New Terminology.

    It seems Brits will do ANYTHING to maintain the semblance of order. Go after the cause of the disturbance or submit to it in the hope that order can somehow be maintained.

    Replace ‘Hungarian’ with ‘Jewish’, and it seems Britain went from seeing Jews as troublemakers who had to be kept in their place to totally caving into Jewish demands in the hope that order will somehow be maintained.

    Matthew is not a Judeo-Christian book because there is no such thing as “Judeo-Christian.”

    Matthew is a Judeo-Christian book because it’s part of a creed properly called Judeo-Christianity.

    That creed

    1) was founded by ethnic Jews and only Jews, including the man who might’ve been called Matthew;

    2) was imported to the West originally only by Jews, headed by a Pharisee who says that he was a Jew (and evidently felt good about it: Romans 3: 1, 2) and that his fellow proselytizers were Jews;

    3) is messianic, with messianism being inherited from earlier Judaic religion, of which it’s an essential feature;

    4) has as its deity the god of Israel;

    5) has as its messiah the son of that god, a son who on Earth was a Judean carpenter of the tribe of Judah and of the House of David, King of Israel;

    6) derives essential elements from scriptures sacred to Judaic religion, e.g., the Fall of Man and the Ten Commandments;

    7) shares with the Jews the Torah, the Tanakh, the Hebrew Bible, under the name of the Old Testament;

    8) considers Israel as the “Holy Land” as do the Jews.

    Obviously, Judeo-Christianity and Judaism aren’t the same. If they were, the proper name for your superstition wouldn’t be Judeo-Christianity but Judaism. But obviously they’re related, with elements of the former coming from the latter.

    That there have been major disagreements between Jews and Judeo-Christians proves nothing–let alone lol that the latter’s creed has nothing to do with Jews. There are divergences between Orthodox and Conservative and Reform Judaism, but these denominations are creedally connected. There have been violent divergences between Catholicism and Protestantism (e.g., the Thirty Years’ War and the ages-old strife in Ireland); but for all the disagreements, no one would say that Catholicism and Protestantism aren’t ideological relatives; and it’s just as clear that they’re Judeo-Christian, given that they both embody the facts listed above.

    I hope your next proposition will be a more plausible one, like men get pregnant.

    Perhaps, you don’t know enough about Putin to judge him so easily. His best childhood friends were Jewish (Arcady and Boris Rotenberg) and his first judo coach was also Jewish (Anatoly Rakhlin). His childhood was brutal and he might not have survived and prospered without them. The reality is that he owes them a lot and he has not forgotten this. Putin is not going to turn against Jews as a people, don’t look forward to it. Instead, you should give him credit for being loyal to his friends. Having said this, it is not a big secret that Putin is not fond of Jews in general but he will never say this in public. The reality is that his relationship with Jews is complex and not one-sided.

    The book titled “In the First Person. Talks with Vladimir Putin” described how the future president got acquainted with Rakhlin, coming to the wrestling club in Leningrad. “This was a common sport hall, which belonged to the sport society Trud. There I had a very good coach – Anatoly Semenovich Rakhlin,” Putin recalled. The Russian leader attributes without determination a decisive role in his life to his coach. “If I had not been going in for sports, I do not know which turn my life would have taken. This is Anatoly Semenovich (Solomonovich) actually protected me from the influence of the groups of young people in the streets. Frankly speaking, the situation was far from being good there,” he noted.

    Tacitus?? You must be kidding. The Christian testimony of Tacitus was not known until the 14th century CE! So Tacitus wrote the Annals around 107 CE, and for 1200+ years, nobody noticed the part about Nero persecuting the Christians and Jesus being put to death by Pilate? None of the early Church fathers, eager to defend the historicity of the Gospels, referred to Tacitus. Nor did Eusebius in the fourth century, despite being so desperate to prove the fantasy that he paraphrased a bit of Luke and interpolated it into the Antiquities of Josephus, giving us the equally ridiculous Flavian Testimony. When you bring up these petty forgeries, far from buffing your position, you further condemn your view of history as fraudulent.

    [MORE]

    Even if it were not for the fact that these testimonies did not appear until centuries later than the actual history books were written, they give themselves away as fake and out of context. The Tacitan testimony is only four sentences long (and so is the Flavian). These historians were writing multiple, detailed volumes of early Jewish and imperial Roman history, and the executed Messiah only gets a blurb? Why would either historian refer to Jesus as Christ, despite neither being Christian? The Flavian Testimony even acknowledges the resurrection! Why would Josephus believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the man who was executed for attacking the Jewish temple?

    Tacitus actually wrote that there was no disturbance in Palestine during the reign of Tiberius (14-37 CE), whereas the preceding and following reigns were characterized by rebellion and unrest. Tacitus was not even born until around the year 57 CE. Like Josephus, he could not have been an eyewitness to the life of Christ. So how would they have even known about Jesus? What would their sources have been?

    It is the fake blurb in Tacitus that gives credence to the myths of Christian martyrdom under Nero, which today are being discredited by students of ancient Rome. There quite simply were no early Christians to persecute. There was early Christian literature, but these were the letters of Paul, which do not describe any aspect of Christ’s life, certainly not the whipping of money changers and not Pontius Pilate either. Pontius Pilate didn’t become part of the story until the creation of the Gospels. And the first Gospels (ie Mark, Marcion, and Matthew) weren’t published until 130 CE, a full century after the crucifiction. So how could Tacitus have been writing about Jesus and Pilate in 107 CE?

    It’s a bunch of total nonsense! There was no witness to the birth, life, or death of Jesus Christ. Paul simply made him up and boasts about doing so. Mark transformed JC into the pro Roman hero of a fable that justifies the Roman destruction of Jerusalem. Matthew turned the inherent ironies of Mark into an open lampoon. And Luke and Acts and John, which try to claim this all as history, didn’t appear until 180 CE. The first Roman persecution of the Christians didn’t occur until the reign of Emperor Decius in 250 CE.

    Early Christian history, like the Jewish history that inspired it, is a fiction.

    It is quite difficult to gauge the opinion of the people in cyberspace – especially since the forums and personal WordPress blogs gave way to Reddit and Quora, and then, increasingly, to such platforms as Discord and Telegram. Fortunately, Russians still make extensive use of the ancient blogging platform LiveJournal, alongside their social media aide Vkontakte. This gives one a one-a-million opportunity to learn what their great minds are thinking – with a convenient Google Translate browser add-on.

    (For context – Putin is considered quite a liar and a circus clown in Russia. Whatever you or others in the West may find “manly” in his speech is but a local cultural peculiarity, akin to the feminitives in the language, long lost in English. The only hope real Russian nationalists are putting in Putin lies in his supposed ambition not to end up a defiled corpse like Gaddafi’s. Because for 20 years, Putin has been a great enemy of Russia, continuing the disintegration of Yeltsin, albeit at a slower pace. Now, his interests coincide with those of Russia – and he might finally do something good. But his past deeds will still work against him.)

    > “If they are unable to see that their own religion, the basis of their worldview, is a rank hypocrisy and fantasy when interpreted as history?”

    The problem with using the term “lie” is that it’s too vague. Don’t humans lie to themselves all the time to cope with issues of existence such as individual death, the impermanence of beauty, the lowly origins of men? The issue with Christianity is that it’s one lie too far – magnified by the recent technological breakthroughs, and by deifying a living foreign race that hates you.

    An ideology, a religion is by definition “hypocritical”. Is it not disingenuous for people to keep on living as if they were immortal? Or for a man to found a family, even though the love will pass, along with the beauty? The human condition is founded upon such “good (?) lies”. A culture is nothing but a set of behaviours, of survival strategies that may or may not be successful – and nobody knows beforehand whether it will.

    There have been ideologies explicitly founded on scientific basis, reasonably rationally trying to incorporate known data to inspire their worldview – namely, Hitlerian national socialism and Marxist communism. The former put the emphasis on race as the subject of history, and lost the war to the superior mass of coal and steel in 1945. The latter highlighted the economic relations as the grounds for their empire – eventually losing the culture war to the cosmopolitan subversives in 1991.

    The moral of the story? Only Allah (s.w.t.) knows the truth. Whereas we, mortals, may only have estel (hope) in the kaleidoscope of history.

    At least Putin’s Russia has some shred of compassion for their own. It’s as I’ve mentioned before, they use the best part of our humanity, our love for our own, as a weapon against us. Just as they did with the ethnic Germans in Danzig to drag the world into wars, so too they use the Russian people’s natural affection for their own people in the break-away republics, to foment war, by systematically killing those people, knowing that the only decent thing Russia can do, (like Germany before her), is come to the aid of their own.

    putin has done the impossible, he inherited the smoldering remains of the soviet empire that had been throughly looted and was totally controlled by the west, that had started a civil war in chechnya, to steal russian oil fields. in a mere two decades, he regained control from the oligarchs, rebuilt the russian army, won the allegiance of the chechen people and developed anti ballistic systems and hypersonic missiles that are three generations ahead of the west.

    dear priss, do not worry about the russian people, as always they will be fine, they have been giving a new sense of self purpose and pride in being russian. the true genius of putin lay in his understanding that the true power of russia lies in it’s amazing, undervalued, long abused and courageous people. as anonfromtn pointed out to me in comment 119, russian is not a nationality but a state of mind.

    To emphasise, one of the reasons for the centuries-old Russophobia, the Western elites’ unconcealed animosity toward Russia is precisely the fact that we did not allow them to rob us during the period of colonial conquests and forced the Europeans to trade with us on mutually beneficial terms. This was achieved by creating a strong centralised state in Russia, which grew and got stronger based on the great moral values​​of Orthodox Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Buddhism, as well as Russian culture and the Russian word that were open to all.

Scholz (Der Hausmeister) seems like a frightened, timid rabbit and is there any chance he would take the pollock demands seriously?

    Also, from what I understand, Russia is the only Western (white) nation that has offered the Afrikaners (whites) sanctuary from their looming fate.

    Good point. But we also have to remember that Mandela was a Judeo-Communist terrorist, and at the time he was terrorizing South Africa Putin was KGB station chief of East Germany, which was likely also involved with Mandela.

    Yuri Bezmenov told us all about the Judeo-Communist plan to demoralize and subvert the Western European nations. Putin would have been aware of and been involved in these covert actions as well.

    It is entirely possible that avowed communists like Brennen and all the neocon Jews were always working with the Comintern and still are today. This would indicate that Putin could still be part of a far broader plot against humanity, and that the Russo-Galician war is really just a subterfuge to hide the real conspiracy while furthering the genocide of whites and the war for the creation of Khazaria.

    I want to believe that Putin is a force for “good” for European civilization. God knows that the Neocons, Nato, Zelensky and the Democrats are a force for evil. Like you, I hope Russia prevails. But I have my doubts.

    You’re the one who needs to read the foundational book of Christianity, rather that merely coughing up a sound bite. You cite Matthew 10:34, “I came not to bring peace but a sword”. Note how Christ gets to wield the sword and not you.

    [MORE]

    So what will Christ do with his sword? He tells us in the very next line: “FOR I CAME TO MAKE A MAN HOSTILE AGAINST HIS OWN FATHER, AND A DAUGHTER AGAINST HER MOTHER, AND A BRIDE AGAINST HER MOTHER IN LAW, AND A MAN’S ENEMIES WILL BE THE MEMBERS OF HIS OWN HOUSEHOLD” (Matt 10:35).

    In other words, the sword of Christ has no utility for defending (or expanding) a family or a nation. The sword of Christ is in fact the promise of fratricide and civil war. And this is exactly how Christianity has played out over the centuries, right down to this current conflict between two Slavic, Christian Orthodox nations. Jesus minces no words about what will happen to you if you take up your own sword: “ALL THOSE WHO DRAW THE SWORD WILL PERISH BY THE SWORD” (Matt 26:52). Probably at the hands of their own kin.

    Jesus’ teachings in Matthew only make sense if you respect his disclaimer that his teachings are only meant for evil Jews. Jesus foretells the civil conflict and eventual defeat at the hands of Rome that the Jews will experience after his death. No one but an evil person needs to follow the teachings of Jesus in Matthew. No one but an evil person can really benefit from it. It is a philosophy of self defeat. If you wield a sword in the name of Christ, then you should only expect your own brother to strike you down. Such a fate we can predict for Mr. Putin.

    Perhaps, you don’t know enough about Putin to judge him so easily. His best childhood friends were Jewish (Arcady and Boris Rotenberg) and his first judo coach was also Jewish (Anatoly Rakhlin). His childhood was brutal and he might not have survived and prospered without them.

    And you believe that? Sounds apochryphal and probably is. Either way, we have no way to prove its authenticity and so no reason to believe it. And given that it comes from a politician who has to do business with the most powerful people in the world, every reason why we shouldn’t. If he owes anything it’s to those you named as individuals who helped him, not to their entire people!

    And if he owes anything to Jewish Supremacy Inc., for example, his willingness to place them above criticism, love them unconditionally, and blindly obey them no matter what, it’s because they’re powerful. Not because a few people who are Jews helped him.

    Instead, you should give him credit for being loyal to his friends.

    First: What is friendship without loyalty?

    Second: There’s loyatly and there’s blind loyalty. And where is their loyalty to him? And why didn’t you even think to mention that? Because either you are Jewish or have been brainsoiled by their propaganda and are as addicted to fairytales masquerading as truth as they are. It’s virtually a defining feature of theirs. Which is why they are forcing their fairytales on the entire world and making it a madhouse in the process.

    Third: The question of loyalty is beside the point. We’re not just talking about some guy showing loyalty to his friends. We’re talking about a world leader and a leader of a nuclear power who is being manipulated by the most powerful people in the world today, Jewish Supremacy Inc.

    Fourth: That he is blaming a group of people who JSI replaced and disgraced long ago and in a way not unlike what they are doing to Putin and his people and country now is incredibly irresponsible and totally discrediting.

    Having said this, it is not a big secret that Putin is not fond of Jews in general but he will never say this in public. The reality is that his relationship with Jews is complex and not one-sided.

    You just proved my point.

    If it’s many-sided and complex then why is he giving the world just one side of it? And at such a critical time for us all in general, and when they are attacking him so aggressively in particular. That you don’t even mention this proves you’re either part of the tribe or a wanna be. Either way, at a time when they are brining us all closer to a catastraphic conflict you make it all about them! And that tells us everything!

    {Putin mentioned Judaism in his speech:}

    Putin also mentioned Islam and Buddhism………
    He also said Orthodox Christianity, not the made up oxymoron word Judeo-Christian routinely spread in the GloboWest.

    So why did Putin mention all those other religions? Simple: Russian Federation is a multi-religious, multi-ethnic Federation, with ethnic Russians and Orthodox Christianity the dominant entities.
    [For example, Defense Minister Shoigu is half Russian (mother) and half Tuvan (father).]

    But other religions and other ethnicities are left alone to run their lives and their regions, as long as they do not attempt to dismember RF. For example, one reason Chechens are so fanatically loyal to Moscow is that they are left alone to run Chechnya as a 100% Muslim region, with a lot of benefits accrued to them (billions of Rubles) being part of RF.

    Thanks for your response.

    I think I’d have to agree with you that he has been very careful to not touch the “3rd rail” – and instead just blame the Anglo Saxons. He surely HAS to know that the Brits won’t do a thing without American permission – and that the ruling elite of the USA is hardly WASP anymore.

    Since that was my argument I’d give it a 10 out of 10. Not that I’m afraid of low marks. I’ve certainly earned them in my time and look at them as learning opportuntities and not some sign of a mental defect. After all, aren’t we hear to learn? And isn’t that learning based on human imperfection?

    So, if you could tell me where I missed the mark, or exactly what in my comment was obviously propaganda, I’d be sincerely grateful, and I mean it. Til then, I have to say, it’s interesting that you didn’t. Instead you focused on what in my comment you agreed with. And that wasn’t just part of my comment, it was the whole thing. Everything else I wrote was in support of that.

    For the record, I too admired Putin and to some extent still do (though that admiration was tempered when I started coming across the legion of online Putin fanboys; not saying you’re one of them, by the way; and even more tempered after his speech blaming Anglo-Saxons).

    My anger at him is for the reason I stated in my comment. His fear of naming his real enemy and his willingness to scapegoat a people who were targeted for destruction in the same way they are targeting him now. Besides, he knows full well that in today’s political climate Anglo-Saxons means Whites. By blaming them he’s helping his enemy to continue targeting Whites and in the same way they have targeted him.

    He’s participating in the same scapegoating that virtually defines Jewish Supremacy Inc., since it can not live without one and never has – ever. And he’s doing it at at time when he’s being scapegoated. Of course I’m furious!

    The question isn’t that I’ve triggered a cabal of Putin fanboys. The question is, since they’re also being targeted, why aren’t they angry too? Why are they defending him when he’s attacking them instead of naming the people who are attacking both Russians and Whites in general and Putin in particular?

    The only answer is because their misplaced loyalty has made them sick, crazy and stupid. Which is exactly where their Jewish Supremacist masters want them. They are the inverse of all of the anti-Putin propaganda. Given what’s at stake, who cares if they’re triggered by a single commenter at some website. They should be more concerned about getting their priorities straight. They could start by learning some self-respect.

    I am not seeking to disagree with what you have written but I have a thing about false quotes.

    Thanks for your comment. I agree with you about false quotes. So if I find out that this one is falsely attributed to Solzhenitsyn then I will no longer continue attributing it to him.

    But I will most definitely continue to use the quote. For a reason. It’s useful. And it’s useful because it’s relevant. Namely, relevant to the behavioral patterns of Jewish Supremacy Inc. The fact that the quote so obviously speaks to their behavior is exactly why they make the quote about attribution and not accuracy, as in, accuracy of reporting (on behavioral patterns in the context of cultural history).

    So, though it is important to have a nose for made up quotes, tt’s also important to question those who focus exclusively on the who, so as to discredit the what. In this case, who said what, as opposed to what was said. Regarding this quote, and not just this quote, one could reasonably attribute it to some JIDF Troll working for The ADL.

    In fact, after reading your comment I looked it up and sure enough, guess who they attribute the quote to – David Duke. A man who is not simply controlled opposition, like the kind one gets on Fox News, etc., but a man who is designated opposition. That way Jewish Supremacy Inc. can literally come out and tell you what they are doing – and then proceed to put it in the mouth of someone it would be social and financial suicide to associate with – even online. Discredit through Association. In other words, discrediting the truth through association. One of the oldest tricks in the JSI Playbook.

    Speaking of which: here’s a link to a “discussion” about the quote that I came across after reading your comment. The discussion, for lack of a better word, is revealing in itself. As you can see by reading some of the comments, for JSI criticism = antisemitism. https://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic.php?t=235803

    But let’s say the attribution is false. Great. But is its content false? Maybe. Maybe not. I don’t think the quote in question is false in what it says, obviously, or I wouldn’t have used it. So what we need at this point is a way to test it. How can we do that?

    Well, we can look at the quote as an interpretation. We can then turn the interpretation into a theory. After all, both theory and interpretation are causal statements. They both say, X happened because of Y. But, to verify a causal statement you have to test it. So to test your interpretation you have to turn it into a theory.

    To turn your interpretation into a theory you have to recast it in a direction-giving statement in an “If….then…” form. That is, in the form of a prediction. To verify a prediction someone has to do something in the real world. But can we do this in matters regarding History? Good question.

    Because the subject of history is not about past events. Past events are inaccessible. History as a subject of study is about documents written and/or read in the present. This is something no Woke Historian, ie; an appointed shill for JSI, will ever admit, which is enough to discredit them.

    We seem to be in a dilemma. But the key word is “seems.” Fortunately, there’s a way out. The only instrument we have to think with is analogy, and all we can do with it is predict.

    So, we can take this interpretation of JSI and use it to predict whether or not we will see the behavioral patterns in question in both the flesh and in print. I don’t think anyone who cares to look will have a hard time finding such evidence. In terms of documentation The Unz Review itself offers lots of it. And in terms of the real world, the here and now of it all, well, just look around.

    For this reason, barring a miracle, ie; a change in the behavior of JSI, I will continue to use the quote. I just won’t attribute it to Solzhenitsyn until I can find said quote in one of his Works.

    But even then, it’s not hard to see why JSI attributed this quote-hoax to Solzhenitsyn. Because JSI routinely refers to Solzhenitsyn as an antisemite. And an antisemite is someone Jews don’t like. And they don’t like them exactly because the antisemite said something truthful, something factual, something verifiable, about Jews. And Solzhenitsyn certainly did that in both The Gulag Archipelago and 200 Years Together. And even though in both books he was careful and respectful they still smeared him. It’s what they do because it’s who they are.

    Thanks again for your response and for directing attention to the subject of quote verification. It gave me the chance to spell out, for myself at least, exactly what matters most, ie; not who said what, but who does what and why.

    That Solzhenitsyn quote has been floating around the Internet for years, but is almost certainly fraudulent.

    From what I know, some years ago David Duke claimed that it was what Solzhenitsyn had privately said to him during a personal conversation when the two of them allegedly once met. Since Duke only quoted the statement after Solzhenitsyn had died, there was no way to verify the story.

    Therefore, anyone using that quote is relying upon the absolutely unimpeachable personal reliability of David Duke, and is simply a fool. Naturally, there are many, many fools among Internet activists so the use of the quote is widespread.

    I could easily imagine that the ADL promotes all of this since it severely damages the credibility of anyone using the quote.

    If you’re doing that sort of thing, why not just invent your own Solzhenitsyn quote instead of using a quote (very likely) invented by David Duke?

    russia is the russian people, they have an indomitable will and have experienced the harshest conditions imaginable throughout their long and proud history and withstood it all, still being russians.

    This is a myth. Sure, Russia survived but they often got beat. They got conquered by Mongols. Moscow was once sacked by Poland. The ONLY reason Russia is so big is it could expand eastward, which was mostly empty land(once the Mongols went away and faded from history).
    Also, the once mighty Turks declined in power and the Caucasus region was full of tribes who hated one another.

    But when it came to Western Powers, Russia was hardly strong against them.
    Napoleon was defeated by the Russian winter, not the Russian people.

    Russia couldn’t even beat Britain in Crimea, right on their doorstep. Russia failed to beat Japan in 1905. In WWI, Russia was miserable even though Germany had to deal with UK and France(and Italy). If anything, the Russian people turned against the Tsar, leading eventually to Bolshevik revolution.

    The only reason Russia won WWII was due to totalitarianism. Otherwise, it would have lost to Germany. Today, Russians tell Putin to fight harder but most Russians don’t want to serve and fight. Russians are underachievers. This is why Jews ran circles around them in the 90s and even now in foreign policy.

    Sure, Russia survived Bolshevism and the 1990s. But the fact is Russians were unable to stop those forces from wreaking havoc on Russia in the first place. Survival is good, but it’s better to win so that one doesn’t have to struggle to survive. But Russians lack focus. Do Russians merely want to survive or reach their full potential? How is this possible when the biggest retailer in Russia is some Korean woman? Do Russians have any work ethic?

    Of course, EU is in a sorry state, and the US is now a nutjob place. But Russia has failed to take full opportunity of the current crisis.

    That said, the Anglos, once supreme achievers, have become a sorry sack race. I hear the biggest owners of land and property in London are the Hindus. How did that happen!!???

    “the satellite is about to go down, so we have to leave it right there” lol

    He mentions David Irving several times, and I know you’re familiar with David Irving, because you wrote an amazing article on him and that trial.

    I also found it interesting that a major mainstream news organization would have as a (supposedly objective) news anchor a guy who worked for AIPAC as the editor for their monthly magazine. Wouldn’t that pretty much be the same thing as an American mainstream news outlet hiring Zelinsky as a television news anchor to report on the war between Russia and Ukraine?

    I didn’t know Blitzer was AIPAC until Dr. Duke pointed it out.

    Like I said, I certainly can’t speak to Duke’s character, or lack of, (from what I understand, he did spend contributor’s money in a questionable way, so there’s that), but I think it would be interesting if you could aim your high-powered scrutiny as such a notorious icon of right-wing viewpoints, (and left-wing revulsion).

    First of all, define Russia. Its recent history has been split into three periods, each warring with the others (or four, if you count the short-lived Russian Republic). And in the current iteration, why is it the case that you view Russia as monolithic when it’s nothing but? There are plenty of good men in Russia that do successfully kill foreigners, but are hamstrung by the Putinian régime (in the link – the defenders of Belgorod oblast who are not getting any pay or recognition from the government).

    > “Putin knows one important fact and that is his realization of the West’s pathological preoccupation of curtailing Russian progress by all means after 75 years of Jewish Bolshevism tyranny.”

    So, it was that pesky West that made Putin discontinue the production of nails in the Russian Federation? Also, quite incredible to see people shitting on the USSR when we are standing at the doorstep of a nuclear armageddon. The independent Ukraine is as much a part of the post-Soviet devastation as the RF.

    > “He accomplished what he set out to do in Ukraine liberating industrial Donbas from Ukinazis.”

    As Strelkov tends to say, are you from the PPP (Pink Pony Planet)? Because on this Earth, Russia has not liberated any kind of Donbass, which is still firmly occupied by the Kiev régime. With no end in sight. So what are you even praising Putin for if he fails by your own metric?

    Returning to the OP, the annexation of eastern Novorussia may be viewed as either:
    1) a stepping-stone moral preparation of the population to the coming of war to Crimea first, and to Russia proper second;
    2) a casus belli for the use of nuclear weapons against the Ukraine, which in turn would be used as a casus belli for the American preemptive nuclear strike (500-800 warheads) against the Russian nuclear arsenal. Granted, with the traitor Putin in power, Russian second strike capability might be fatally undermined (not counting patriotic rogue nuclear submarine officers). This is my current view, influenced by the Armchair Legion Strategist.

    Thanks for your response.

    How did it work out for the last guy who named those calling the shots? How did it work out for his country and its people? Aren’t they still paying?

    That was exactly my point.

    Using the word “Anglo-Saxons” gets people wondering what is meant by that, and they start asking questions. Of course, they’ll be lied to, but eventually, through the lies, omissions and censoring, the truth finally rears its ugly head.

    Of course, I would love for that to be true.

    But, unfortunately, it sounds more like wishful thinking and an opportunity for yet more of the same, ie; the scapegoating of whites for the benefit of Jewish Supremacy Inc. Frankly I think that model is falling apart along with everything else under their control.

    “But, unfortunately, it sounds more like wishful thinking and an opportunity for yet more of the same, ie; the scapegoating of whites for the benefit of Jewish Supremacy Inc. Frankly I think that model is falling apart along with everything else under their control.”

    It IS falling apart, and it’s falling apart precisely because they are having to tighten up their grip. Every time they squeeze, more and more people wake up. I see this happening now; it is picking up momentum. And they are also moving too quickly. Why is that? I think it’s because they know they have been seen.

    C.S. Peirce said: “A thing without opposition does not exist. Existence lies in opposition.”

    By scapegoating whites, they are creating opposition. This opposition causes the injured party to resist, and it is this resistance that creates being, an identity, a voice. It forces you to articulate what you stand for, what you value, and in the process you eventually realize that your values are much different than theirs, that you don’t want what they want. You begin to see them not as a source of benevolence, but as a foreign enemy. You “see” them.

    This is the differentiation that I see happening now. This opposition/resistance dynamic brings out the necessary “fight” response.

    The elites are in a similar position to the Federal Reserve. Print too much money in an inflationary environment and you just create more inflation. Oppose Whites too much and you just create more and more resistance. The elites are nailing their own coffins.

  226. Thomasina says:
    @Derer

    Yes, I’m sure there are many factors that Putin had to consider, things we aren’t privy to. Sometimes it makes sense to move slowly. At least it allows the rest of the world to see that he did not act rashly, that he tried to negotiate peace. The West has been baiting Putin, trying to get him to act rashly, but he hasn’t taken the bait. He is to be commended for this restraint.

    Have a good day, Derer.

  227. Richard B says:

    Hello Ron. Thank you for your response. Honored. Though somewhat puzzled (I’ll explain why in a moment).

    Therefore, anyone using that quote is relying upon the absolutely unimpeachable personal reliability of David Duke, and is simply a fool.

    In the first place, anyone using this quote is relying on its content, not its attribution, obviously, and is anything but a fool. And now we’re back to why, though honored to get your response, I’m somewhat puzzled by it. The reason is because you yourself use another widely misattributed quote in your essay. Has The ADL Gone Into Hiding
    https://www.unz.com/announcement/has-the-adl-gone-into-hiding/

    A very shrewd observation, widely misattributed to Voltaire, states that “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” Or put another way, individuals are reluctant to publicly challenge those whose power they fear. Certainly, this simple standard helps to explain many important aspects of America’s severely malfunctioning political system.

    And guess who the quote is attributed to, Kevin Alfred Storm, a “Neo-Nazi” Who would have ever guessed. One is hardly a fool for using that quote, regardless of its attribution, and the reason why is because it’s content is highly relevant and therefore, useful.

    In any event, the point regarding both quotes is not Who said what, but What was said. And the What in the quote misattributed to Solzhenitsyn that we are discussing now is mass murder. I’m sure you’ll agree that this is hardly a trivial matter. Especially since this is a point you made in your excellent essay on World War II. American Pravda: Understanding World War II (Table of Contents: “He Who Controls The Past Controls The Future”). A personal favorite and certainly one of your best.

    Given this passage’s relevance to our discussion it’s worth quoting in full:

    Meanwhile, all historians know perfectly well that the Bolshevik leaders were overwhelmingly Jewish, with three of the five revolutionaries Lenin named as his plausible successors coming from that background. Although only around 4% of Russia’s population was Jewish, a few years ago Vladimir Putin stated that Jews constituted perhaps 80-85% of the early Soviet government, an estimate fully consistent with the contemporaneous claims of Winston Churchill, Times of London correspondent Robert Wilton, and the officers of American Military Intelligence. Recent books by Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Yuri Slezkine, and others have all painted a very similar picture. And prior to World War II, Jews remained enormously over-represented in the Communist leadership, especially dominating the Gulag administration and the top ranks of the dreaded NKVD.
    Both of these simple facts have been widely accepted in America throughout my entire lifetime. But combine them together with the relatively tiny size of worldwide Jewry, around 16 million prior to World War II, and the inescapable conclusion is that in per capita terms Jews were the greatest mass-murderers of the twentieth century, holding that unfortunate distinction by an enormous margin and with no other nationality coming even remotely close.

    And finally, to return to your previous comment:

    I could easily imagine that the ADL promotes all of this since it severely damages the credibility of anyone using the quote.

    As if the ADL has any credibility. It doesn’t. And so is in no position to judge. What it does have is power. Lots of it. A power it uses, or misuses and abuses, to get Jewish criminality placed above criticism. And it does this, in part, by destroying anyone who criticizes Jews. Especially if what they are saying is true. So much for credibility.

    Of course, the whole point of them damaging credibility is to deny accountability. Which, again, damages their credibility. And that credibility is further damaged by attributing the quotes to people who just conveniently happen to be either Neo-Nazis or associated with the KKK (two groups who seem to only exist today through the combined efforts of the ADL and the FBI).

    So, in conlusion and going forward, I’ll be more than happy to revise my use of this misattributed quote by acknowledging the misattribution, as you yourself did. No problem. One would be a fool not to. And like you Ron, I’m no fool.

    Once again, honored. Thanks!

    @Richard B

    Sure. It’s always important to handle quotes carefully. While it’s possible that Solzhenitsyn privately made that statement to David Duke, there’s no evidence for that aside from the latter’s claim. So it’s perfectly fine to say something like “According to David Duke, Solzhenitsyn said…”

    That way, all the people who trust Duke can accept it and all the people who distrust Duke can reject it.

    Similarly, when there’s a useful and very widespread but incorrect quote floating around on the Internet, I think the best approach is to simply use it while indicating that it’s incorrect. Thus, I said “A very shrewd observation, widely misattributed to Voltaire, states that…”

    Similarly, in another article I wrote:

    GM CEO “Engine Charlie” Wilson delivered the famously misquoted claim that “what was good for our country was good for General Motors, and vice-versa.”

    News of Russia’s defeat, let alone a “humiliating” defeat, are premature. The war is only six months old and so far the Ukrainians holds a part of the territory of one Russian republic, the DNR, as well as some part of Kherson. That’s a long way from the gates of Leningrad, Moscow, and Stalingrad, where the Nazis got to last time round and still Russia wasn’t defeated.

    That was the USSR. Not a perfect solution, but sufficient, for protecting the survival of the Russian race. Currently, however, their fate belongs to the clique of Putinian liars, traitors, and idiots. The clique that has explicitly been targeting the Soviet Union’s material and cultural heritage for three decades. It will fall apart at the seams long before the Judaeo-Christians approach what used to be called Stalingrad (its legacy long besmirched by the traitor Khrushchev in 1961). Why else, do you think, the Chechen head Kadyrov has been promoted for half a year, if not to make him lead a side in the upcoming Russian civil war?

    The Russian answer to HBO’s Chernobyl is even worse in its Russophobia than the American counterpart. Yes, it is that hopeless. Along with monuments to Yelstin and Solzhenitsyn.

    Thank you for your reply! I am so sick and tired of seeing Germans crawl around on their bellies dutifully obeying their anglo-yankee masters, with Shlomo calling the shots. All German governments since 1945 have been “janitor” regimes installed to serve their masters and keep the Germans down, in my view. It was a main reason my father, a Waffen-SS officer, emigrated; he couldn’t stand it anymore, to see the Germans meekly accept the humiliations and taking orders from subhumans. He predicted that the “Frecheit” of the pollocks, and of the jews, would eventually lead to more instability and conflict.

    Here are much better views of his “charisma” [1][2][3][4][5]. I guess, because he was in KGB, his idol may be James Bond, so he was just trying to be seen as one, not realizing how embarrassing that looks – for a president.

    Nothing Putin’s doing in those photos is embarrassing.

    You don’t find this “embarrassing”?

    i’m glad you brought up napoleon and yes you were correct, he was defeated by winter, general winter, after being baited into a trap that he could not resist, moscow. the only problem was, that when he got there, there was no one home. talk about a long miserable walk home. well natoleon will not like general winter anymore than his great, great, great grandfather did. i predict a cold winter and natoleon being driven out of novorossiya and totally humiliated. with that said, this is a very dangerous time, as the dying hegemon realizes that they can’t stop the russians and they may resort to a nuclear false flag before the dems get crushed in the midterms. americans always seem to underestimate the intelligence and resolve of the russian mind, the russians understand that and use it to their advantage.

    If it’s many-sided and complex then why is he giving the world just one side of it? And at such a critical time for us all in general, and when they are attacking him so aggressively in particular. That you don’t even mention this proves you’re either part of the tribe or a wanna be. Either way, at a time when they are brining us all closer to a catastrophic conflict you make it all about them! And that tells us everything!

    So you want to know if I am part of the tribe. No problem, I am jewish. If you want to hold me responsible for that, fine, there is nothing I can do about it. The world is about to turn against jews and I don’t see how people like me will be spared. I would rather see only the real criminals paying the price but this is not how the world works. However, I am not terribly worried as I am getting old and I don’t have biological children. My wife is not jewish, she is a catholic and she is triple injected. I spent a crap load of time trying to convince her and her relatives not to take the death shot, but they could not care less. This is the problem with you gentiles – you have not been paying attention for so long, that’s why the worst kind of jews have so much power.

    Having said that I should give you credit for recognizing that Putin is a phony. He is either a crypto jew or shabbos goy, take your pick, as it does not really matter. The cabal is using him as a scarecrow with his bullshit nukes. Just between you and me, don’t worry too much about the nuclear war. The ICBM’s have never been tested with their warheads. The whole nuke business might be another jewish plot to keep the goyim in check.

    And also between you and me – I don’t hate the gentiles. So many gentile women are sexy and beautiful and I wish I could mix my genes with one of them. No luck. I am one of those jewish losers who spend their entire lives wondering why God hates them so much. After all, I could not stop my own wife from taking the jewish poison – isn’t this ironic? Have a nice day, my friend, the world is going to change for the better. I am not going to live long enough to see it, but you will, I promise.
