I. The Purge of the Liberal Media and Rumblings of Economic Nationalization

There have been multiple overviews of the situation in Ukraine from former government officials, former military officers and veteran Russia watchers over the last month. Most of them present a fairly accurate macro-picture of the situation and include the proper basics with which to form an accurate analysis of the current conflict. NATO expansion, broken promises, pipelines with Germany, Neocon animus and so on are all certainly necessary to understand the larger political “context” in which the events are occurring.

Others have focused on the actual day-to-day analysis of the conflict, doing their best to piece together the speed and direction of the Russian advance and the tactics being employed by both sides. Unfortunately, the people trying to provide sober macro and micro analyses of the conflict are a distinct minority, completely dwarfed by those promoting the political narrative of NATO, and to a lesser extent, the official line of the Russian Federation. There is enough material out there for people to make up their own minds about which political narrative to get invested in, and I don’t believe that I can add anything of value to the conversation by rehashing what has already been said in the attempt to convince those who have already made up their minds on the topic.

But few have mentioned or analyzed the rapid changes that are occurring within Russian society on the administrative, ideological and social levels. Who can blame them? Perhaps this is because these changes are occurring so quickly and the Grad showers followed by the red-orange hues of the after-blast have captivated the attention of the internet. War is an incredible thing to witness and we can now see it unfold from the safety of our internet devices as its uploaded to Twitter and Telegram faster than we can keep up with it. At this point, even though I personally have an intimate knowledge of the territory on which the war is being waged, it has become difficult to keep track of who captured what, advanced where and hit what target. I can only imagine the informational overload for the average Westerner trying to keep track and keep score.

But just as impressive as the smoking ruins of a Ukrainian jet or a BTR colum n is the stunning news that “Echo Moscow” has been shot down as well. To those that do not know, Echo Moscow is the NPR or perhaps even New York Times equivalent in Russia. In other words, it is the leading liberal opposition media outlet that has promoted the neoliberal political line in Russia since its inception in 1990 and its vocal support for the neoliberal President Boris Yeltsin. At the time, the political situation was in flux, with USSR hard-liners staging a half-hearted, poorly-planned coup to attempt to salvage the USSR against the “liberal reformers” who had decided to detonate the project. From that point onwards, Echo Moscow supported the work of the reformers, whose names are probably well-known to most Russia-watchers (Chubais, Gaidar, Yeltsin, etc.) who famously sold off state assets for pennies on the dollar to Jewish gangsters and Western companies, creating a system of oligarchic control and a massive, country-wide looting operation that has still, to this day, not fully been shut down.

When, on March 1st, Echo Moscow was shut down by Roskomnadzor (the Russian media watch body), this should have sent shockwaves around the world. It would, perhaps, almost be the equivalent of the Democratic Party shutting down Fox News in the United States. Alexei Venediktov, the editor-in-chief (Jewish) of the organization since its inception, is a veritable icon of the Liberal idea in Russia. But the shutdowns didn’t stop there. Dozhd (Rain), which was a media project aimed at indoctrinating the millennial crowd with SJW ideas, was closed down as well. Tikhon Dzyadko (Jewish), the chief editor, fled the country. The Village, a similar self-described “hipster” project, was closed down as well. Meduza, a media project that mostly transcribed Vice op-eds word for word, had to flee to Riga last year. The Radio Free Europe affiliate in Russia also had to relocate from Moscow to Kiev last year—a poor choice in retrospect. Finally, the Novaya Gazeta (New Gazette), run by none other than Gorbachev himself (nominally), is almost certainly next on the chopping block.

Naturally, most of these media projects are run by Jews and promote the same neoliberal agenda that their cousins in the West promote. And, as victims of the Liberal Occupation Government, we should all understand that Liberal Democracy cannot function without Liberal institutions, of which the media is certainly one of the most important. The media’s role, after all, is to shape political narratives and to outline the acceptable parameters of political discourse. It is the Liberal media that decides what is reasonable, desirable and moral and, of course, what is extremist, hateful and unethical. The Liberal media’s self-appointed job is to decided what should be shut out of civil discourse either through soft or hard methods of censorship.

As such, the implications of Russia shutting down a powerful Liberal institution like the media should be clear to anyone paying attention, but I will elaborate so that there is no confusion about what this means. In simple words: Russia is moving away from the political model of Liberal Democracy and moving back to the traditional Russian political model of Nationalism/Authoritarianism.

But the media is not the only key pillar supporting Liberal Democrat political system— the Oligarchs who finance the media are certainly no less important. Generally, as a rule, the business class of any country since the time of the ancient Greeks supports liberal policies. Granted, there have historically been economically nationalist business elites in places like Germany and even individual titans of industry like Ford in America who have promoted nationalist politics and economic protectionism. But these appear to be the exception, not the rule. Business oligarchs tend to support migrant labor, less government oversight, and political parties who support political measures that will enable these companies to pay less taxes, access international financial markets and to stash their own money in overseas banks. They then invest in skilled ideologists who propagandize the business interests of this caste and cloak it in moral rhetoric. No doubt we have all by now heard quite a bit about the sanctity of the free market, we’ve been morally assuaged by businesses flying BLM and LGBTQRCODE flags, and we accept that the routine buying and selling of politicians by lobbyists in Washington is just part and parcel of the democratic process.

The best example of the tight alliance between the oligarchs and the liberal media in Russia is the aforementioned “Echo Moscow,” which was supported by Gazprom, a quasi-government monopoly company run by Alexey Miller (German/Jewish), who also supported many other liberal political and cultural projects with Russian gas money. This has now come to an end. Gazprom’s media arm has cut funding to Venidiktov’s operation, which has led to much kvetching and the threat of a lawsuit on the part of the Echo Moscow team. Remember: the Echo Moscow media project was majority owned and financed by Gazprom. Meanwhile, Venediktov has openly declared that he is the victim of political repression and that the screws were tightened on Gazprom by Putin himself. There is no reason to believe that he is particularly off-base with his assessment.

Now, the Deep State in the West understands this political situation very well and they have always placed their bets on the Russian oligarchs being able to overthrow Putin and his “siloviki” (military/security people) in the long-run. The formula was simple: support the interests of the big business liberal elite and their media projects to rile the Russian people up and to eventually effect a Maidan-type coup to overthrow the government and install a pro-Western regime. If this sounds familiar, it’s probably because the plan for Russia sounds a lot like the plan for Ukraine, Georgia, Kazakhstan and many other states that have had color revolutions in the recent past.

Here, it is worth mentioning another key component of the plan: the nationalists.

In Russia and most of the FSU, the nationalists aligned themselves with the liberals and worked to provide the muscle to form a “taran” (a ram—their words) against which to batter down the gates of the Kremlin. If this is starting to sound familiar… well, frankly, it should all be starting to become quite clear at this point. Once you know the playbook of the Western Deep State, it’s quite easy to see through the ideological smokescreen and the high-minded rhetoric to see what’s really happening behind closed doors. Many prominent nationalists in Russia declared themselves the sworn enemies of Putin and promoted a form of “National-Liberalism” or “National-Democracy” that allowed them to ideologically justify their alliance (and salaries) from oligarchs like the Ukrainian Kholomoisky and marching together with the Liberal opposition against Putin. I plan to come back to the Russian nationalists and the positive recent changes that have occurred in their camp in another article in the near future. It was simply necessary to briefly touch on them and their role to provide an overview of the political situation in Russia.

All in all though, the Deep State’s plan still very much remains in force.

However, recent events have proven that Putin, who seemed content to allow the situation to fester in a state of political stalemate for the last 20 years, has decided to move against this Liberal faction. He has been helped along by the recent economic attacks of the West. The sanctions targeting Russia’s oligarchs seemed intended to poke and prod them into action—to force them to organize politically to demand that Putin accede to the West’s demands so that their hidden stashes of money and their lines to Western credit wouldn’t be seized. And as we can see now, the business class in Russia is clearly feeling the pressure as a result of Western sanctions and Putin has decided to apply his own pressure on these oligarchs, effectively serving as the anvil to the west’s hammer. We now have Dmitry Medvedev, the former President and Prime Minister, testing the political waters and openly talking about a sweeping economic nationalization program. To even utter such words would have been unheard of a month ago, as it would be a violation of the detente that the Putin and the Liberal Oligarch faction had maintained for the better part of the last two decades. In contrast, patriots of all stripes and colors in Russia, whether they be communists, centrists, Putinists or even many un-bought nationalists, have been calling for this measure since the disastrous fallout from the privatization campaign of the 90s under the Yeltsin administration became readily apparent.

To reiterate: we now see active measures being taken by Putin’s administration to shut down the Liberal media and to strip the enemy oligarchs of their assets. In practice, this will mean the government taking greater control of key industries and Putin putting his people in charge of them. The end result should look quite similar to the Chinese model, which Putin has often praised before in the past for its ability to defend national interests and promote economic projects that are in line with the government’s own stated goals. This synthesis between the state and big business has been defined by Marxists in the 70s as the agreed upon textbook definition of Fascism even though it was practiced by Monarchies, Communist states, National Socialist states and literally every single nation state in history during times of war or economic crisis. We will have more to discuss on this front as the days go by, but there is little reason to believe that Medvedev is bluffing on this front. With Russia squarely facing down NATO, the country will be forced into adopting a war economy, and that necessarily means a greater integration of the state and big business, with disloyal elements in the business class almost certainly put on a purge shortlist.

But there is certainly more in the works that will become readily apparent in the days and weeks that follow.

In just one week, Russian civil society has been shaken to its core:

Lines are being drawn between traitors and loyalists within workplaces, universities, and at the bazaar.

The Duma may not survive in its current state for long.

Martial law is being openly discussed.

Talk of QR codes and implementing the 2030 agenda in place like Moscow and St. Petersburg has all but been abandoned.

Liberals are boarding planes and heading for Georgia, Armenia, Turkey and Riga (another poor choice, perhaps).

Central Asian migrants are being deported in droves and many are fleeing on their own volition.

If the 90s saw a new, Liberal Democratic Oligarchy emerge from the chaos of the last days of the Soviet Union, then the 2020s are shaping up to be the death knell of that old political order. Russia is going through yet another political metamorphosis right before our very eyes.

II. The Social Media Purge and the Birth of “Russian Internet Sovereignty”

As most serious analysts have admitted already, it has become abundantly apparent that the Ukrainian army was no match for Russia. The front has steadily advanced from the south, the north and the east, with a “cauldron” steadily forming around the most battle-ready Ukrainian units deployed in the east along the frontline of the DNR. Several cities have been surrounded, several Ukrainian politicians have been assassinated for holding talks with the Russians, and perhaps several million Ukrainians have been dislocated because of the war. It hasn’t been all smooth sailing by any means. The Russian Army was wildly optimistic about the Ukrainians seeing reason and quickly surrendering. This led to several flying columns sent ahead into Ukrainian-held territory without any air or artillery support getting themselves into trouble and eventually, around the 5th of 6th day of the war, the big guns having to be brought out.

There’s so much to talk about and analyze around this situation, from the hysterical and nonsensical propaganda promoted by the Ukrainian government, the “Blue Checkha” on Twitter and the death threats against Vladimir issued by prominent members of Con Inc, to the confused and contradictory statements coming from NATO countries.

Once again, while I do not disagree with the seasoned Russia-watcher’s critiques of NATO’s aggressive moves against Russia and the calls for negotiation and de-escalation, I can only shake my head and laugh at this point at the futility of the exercise. Politicians, analysts, generals and even a few honest journalists here and there have been calling for restraint for years in the West. Despite this, the agenda has inexorably marched forward, undeterred. Will a 2015 lecture by John Mearsheimer on YouTube really change the views of the Neocon Occupation Government? To ask the question is to answer it. We are looking at a real, genuine showdown between NATO and Russia and few are as blasé about the prospects of yet another all-out war in Europe as they were 2 weeks ago. We should adjust our predictions and analyses going forward according.

I do want to return to the topic of this series of essays and leave the other topics of international geopolitical strategy, diplomacy and military to the professionals who have written and based their careers around them. What should be most relevant for dissidents in the West are the sweeping changes occurring within Russia as a result of the war, the sanctions and the political upheaval that is occurring.

In my previous article, the discussion started with the closure of prominent flagship Liberal-Oligarchic news outlets and media projects. Since then, several more have been shot down and banned in Russia. These smaller ones differ only in the scope of their operation and not in their content or the people who ran them. The media, in Russia, like in much of the White world, is predominantly run and funded by Jews, but there is a small caveat to be considered because of the undeniable power of the Armenians in the media as well. RT and Sputnik are both controlled by the Armenian diaspora. Armenia itself is a complex topic, and is worth briefly touching on here as well. Despite being totally dependent on Russia for its security from hostile neighbors, the Armenians and the Armenian diaspora in particular has made the dangerous game of biting the hand that feeds it a sort of national pastime. In Yerevan, the liberal, pro-West camp runs the city and is lavishly funded by the similarly pro-West diaspora and has been welcoming Russian liberals (who are now fleeing Moscow and St. Petersburg in droves) with open arms. This is also true of Tbilisi, Georgia, which is another preferred destination of Moscow’s second sons and daughters, the spoiled brats of the nomenklatura, who rent out their apartments in the center of the Russian capital to AirBnB tourists while they form their hipster commune-in-exile and sip Georgian wine in the old town.

Margarita Simonyan, the editor-in-chief of RT and Sputnik, has often made clear her disdain for Russian patriots and nascent feelings of Russian nationalism, going so far as to say that should nationalists ever come to power, she and her friends would be hung in the streets. As recently as the fall of 2021, she was calling anti-vaxxers in Russia enemies of the state and frothing at the mouth for them to be arrested or… well, perhaps hung in the streets as well. Despite this dubious track record, she has managed to stay on the Kremlin’s good side by toeing the right line on foreign policy and taking shots at the West’s blatant hypocrisy vis-a-vis Russia whenever she appeared on the late night political talk shows hosted by the state channels. However, because of her own ideological convictions and perhaps because of her Armenian cosmopolitanism, she has not platformed genuine dissident voices on either RT or Sputnik, preferring to interview washed-up old lefties and Bernie Sanders-types instead. The furthest to the right that Margarita has proven herself willing to go is to platform Ron Paul. This hasn’t stopped the West from stopping and detaining Sputnik Lithuania’s editor-in-chief Marat Kasem (Armenian) and Turkey from detaining Sputnik Turkey’s Mahir Boztepe (probably Armenian) as well. Meanwhile, Telegram, the favored method of communication and proselytization of genuine dissidents and CIA spooks the world over, has shut down RT’s channel as part of a concerted effort by the West to shut the network down for good.

This brings us neatly into the main topic of our essay for today: the social media situation in Russia.

Here, perhaps, a few words about Pavel Durov, the creator of Telegram, are in order. Durov is an outspoken Libertarian and has already attempted to dip his toes into Russian politics with disastrous results. It’s worth mentioning that before starting Telegram, Durov created VK, a superior Facebook clone that rapidly gained popularity in St. Petersburg and the rest of Russia to a lesser extent. He is the equivalent of a fledgling Russian Mark Zuckerberg and he openly supported dissident politicians like Alexei Navalny and made a big show of expressing his opposition to Russia’s action in Ukraine back in 2014. Durov first ran into problems when he clashed with the business group. The story, as told by Durov’s camp, is that the Putin-aligned oligarchs of tried to muscle him out of his own IT company. Whatever really happened, Durov eventually ended up packing his bags and fleeing to London.

His most public political adventure was to support a then no-name Libertarian named Mikhail Svetov with a massive, Telegram-wide promotion campaign. Svetov, boosted by the promotion, immediately took to the streets and called for mass protests and a violent overthrow of President Putin. (As an aside, there have been those who have alleged that Svetov’s real name is Lichtmann and that he is at least partially Jewish, but there doesn’t seem to be any conclusive proof on this as of yet.) More damningly, Svetov had quite a few skeletons in his internet closet that quickly surfaced. An old blog that he ran featured child pornography and some of Svetov’s poetic musings on torture/gore porn. This was, apparently, well-known on the internet for several years and Svetov was eventually confronted on this on several podcasts and radio shows that he took part in. One young man even pulled a knife on him on camera, but it was unclear what his motivation was at the time. Svetov was eventually raided and arrested (but quickly released), and because of this and he fled the country soon after. People speculated that it was because of his mother’s (a member of the Moscow nomenklatura) connections that he got sprung despite the clear fact that he had collected and posted child pornography on the internet. Svetov used the same strategy as Alexei Navalny, his political ally, and went stumping to all of the same people that Navalny had once worked with, i.e., the dissident nationalist scene in Russia. Both he and Navalny ran into problems with Maxim Martsinkevich or “Tesak” a Russian Neo-Nazi who became famous all over the world for his home videos where he kidnapped pedophiles, homosexuals, and the odd African student here and there and bullied them on camera, before sharing his exploits on the internet. Amusingly, the police never bothered to stop Tesak—they basically did nothing but cordially request him to stop doing what he was doing for several years, to which he, in turn, politely refused. Svetov, along with Navalny, were quite vocal in calling for the arrest of Tesak, whom they viewed as a rival and potential political usurper, and many suspect that this may have been the factor that tipped the scales of justice against Tesak, who would later go on to suspiciously die in jail, right before his release.

There is quite a bit of lore here and I apologize for dumping so much on the reader all at once.

The story of Tesak, Svetov, Navalny and Durov and their involvement in opposition circles is quite an interesting one, but I only bring it up to highlight what an absolute Wild West the state of dissident politics was in Russia for many years and to explain some of the weird opposition coalitions that have formed and disbanded and reformed over the years to give context to what the Kremlin fears might happen again and why they may take drastic measures in the near future. Navalny, in particular, became the CIA’s top guy and the leader of an almost united anti-Putin protest movement until he was arrested a few years ago. Both green-haired Liberals and xenophobic Nationalists had no qualms supporting him, despite the fact that he used to run with Neo-Nazis (then betrayed them), and despite his obvious Western backing and support. This would be unheard of in the West. Proud Boys and Antifa working together as a “taran” (ram) while receiving Chinese media support to bring down Trump? Absolutely inconceivable. But in Russia? Well, no one really so much as batted an eye at the time.

With the closure of Facebook in Russia and the Kremlin’s well-founded fear that social media might be used to organize mass protests, there is reason to believe that other sites will be closed down as well. It is worth pointing out that the administrative team of Durov’s VK Facebook clone is pro-Ukrainian and pro-LGBTQ+ and has actively censored even relatively benign pro-Russian content on their platform, while Durov’s Telegram was critical to organizing the recent protests in Belarus (Nexta and its operations) and the near overthrow of Lukashenko, and, of course, Facebook is really nothing more than arm of the CIA—this is hardly disputed by serious people anymore. Also, Yandex, a superior Google clone which is now based in the Netherlands, has had prominent members of its organization openly attack Putin in the past and has even gone so far as to astroturf woke media content in Russia. The most egregious example is no doubt the “New Mothers’ podcast which promotes raising sons as daughters and the same sort of SJW insanity that is so common now in the West. Twitter employs teams of Russian-speaking Ukrainians who actively seek out and destroy pro-Russian accounts. They outmatch the Western censors in their zeal, and this is one of the primary reasons why dissident right-wing Twitter sages never really grasped their cultural impact to the same extent in Russia as they did in the English-speaking world.

For years following the events of Euromaidan in Kiev, patriotic voices called on the Kremlin to do something about this looming threat, but to no avail. Roskomnadzor, the media watchdog, did almost nothing but issue a few minor, symbolic fines here and there. No doubt related to this bizarre hypocritical hands-off policy, it is perhaps worth mentioning that the the previous director, Alexander Zharov and the current one, Andrei Lipov, are almost certainly both ethnically Jewish.

But what was impossible a few weeks ago is now possible because of the decision of President Putin to confront NATO in Ukraine.

The usual political formula in Russia goes something like this: Putin comes up with a plan, parts of the plan are leaked to state-aligned media where they are discussed among the political punditry, the plan is discussed and explained to the public through debate on these shows, so that the publicv become acclimated to the idea. If the reception is warm, the plan is then implemented and Putin gets his way, the pundits get to say “I called it,” and the public nods its head sagely, assured that the correct measures have been taken and that this is the only reasonable path forward. Right now, the pundits are debating the topic of “Russian Internet Sovereignty” and its implementation. I’ll leave you to connect the dots on what that means on your own.

If this description of the Russian political process comes across as overly cynical or even anti-Putin, I assure you that this is not my intention. This is simply how all mass democracies operate to some extent, and we would be naïve to think that that the West operates much differently. The key difference between the West and Russia is that the Russian authorities occasionally actually take into account public opinion and adjust their policies accordingly. But the process by which consent is manufactured among the masses, which is the bedrock of all democratic modes of government, is eternal. In the West, a political, cultural and economic elite (overwhelmingly Jewish) promotes their agenda to the masses and lobbies the politicians, who acquiesce to their demands. In the East, the state takes a more active role and even suppresses the self-styled cultural elite, who gnash their teeth and wail that it isn’t Liberal or Democratic for the state to have a mind of its own. Instead, the state uses the same methods as they would use to promote an illiberal set of ideas and political goals.

All that really matters in the end is who manufactures the consent and, of course, to what end. If Russia is serious about facing down NATO, the fifth column in the country has to be neutralized. That is why the biggest liberal media outlets have all been shut down over the last two weeks. And so, it becomes clear now why the state has turned its attention to social media. The social media platform purge will do doubt continue in the coming days and weeks, with renewed calls to create new, Russian-based platforms to take their place.

To understand what Putin and Russia will do next, one has to simply put oneself in the shoes of someone fighting for survival. What measures would a country about to go to war with NATO take? Answer this question, and you don’t need to read “Kremlin tea-leaves,” as many Russia-watchers do, to understand what’s coming next.

  1. Thank you! Outstanding perspective. Not to forget the EU-orientated “middle” class that has/had the money to buy property abroad who are also “victims” of the new Iron Curtain. They certainly supported to large extent this foolishness and trust in EU and now are shown as NATO’s useful idiots.

  2. Notsofast says:

    excellent behind the scenes look into the domestic situation in russia. this makes me more sure than ever that putin and his inner circle had planned their response very carefully before proceeding into the ukraine. the zioneocons had thought themselves to be so clever in slicing the salami and that putin wouldn’t dare respond to their never ending push to the east. putin met their clever with a cleaver and hacked the salami clean in two. now he can clean house in russia, paint the 5th columnists and globalist oligarchs as the traitors that they are and begin to establish the new multi polar world order.

  3. Trumpeter says:

    Neutralizing the treasonous 5th column within Russia should have been done years ago. I hope that this is indead part of Putins strategy and not wishful thinking by the author. Trying to separate fact from fiction in the current information war is a mission in itself, but one thing is clear that mentally diseased lunatics in Washington seem intent on igniting a nuclear holocaust with Russia. By design or sheer crass stupidy is open to question, but either way there’s a very real possibility that US and Russian ICBMs could yet be unleashed against each other. Human insanity knows no bounds.

  4. Hmm.  Maybe I am still fettered by the propaganda of my upbringing.  But I do like the ideal of free speech.  I do like my First Amendment.  Would I want my leader to be able to imprison me and seize my assets for publicly disagreeing with him?

    Getting rid of the degeneracy opium peddled by the baleful NATO empire must be a good thing.  But I keep returning to this thought:  Am I willing to take my reaction to liberalism that far?  Without the First Amendment in my country, posting this comment could become a dangerous act.  But my instinct tells me that power politics will always win and has always won out over convenient abstractions like freedom of speech.

    Oligarchs, billionaires have become a subversive class throughout the world. They rub elbows with one another rather than with the citizens of their respective countries. Their interests are inimical to that of the mass of people everywhere. One billionaire can overrule the interests of millions of ordinary people. Steps need to be taken to eliminate this class and its power. No one needs so much money and their power corrupts everything. Most of their assets and wealth should be nationalized and many of them are traitors to the country they reside in which should be looked at.

    you’re not only fettered, you’re bound and soon to be gagged. the first amendment died of covid (or maybe the vaccine). ask the jan 6th idiots or the canadian truckers about being imprisoned or having you’re assets seized for publicly disagreeing with your government. try posting anything on twitter or facebook that doesn’t conform to the government narrative and what makes you think that posting here isn’t a dangerous act, we could be being kettled, for all we know. your instinct is correct and money is the power behind all politics.

    The problem with freedom of speech is thoughts and beliefs don’t come from a vacuum

    Your thoughts come from mostly the media that you consume

    Spend too much time on 4chan, zero hedge or Unz and you turn into one of us (what I would like to call a realist or rationalist)

    Spend too much time on Twitter and reddit and you will turn into a pink haired feminist

    If you were born into the 15th century europe you would support burning witches, if you were born into the Aztecs you would support ritualistic human sacrifice

    At the end of the day a free media today over time controlled by liberals will transform the population into pink haired feminists flooding the country with 3rd worlders, the birth rate would plummet, the people turn into hedonists

    Go back 70 years ago in America and these pink haired liberals didn’t exist and now today they are getting people fired for saying the wrong thing

    The Chinese communist party realized this decades ago, hence why they created the great firewall, and starting producing media encouraging math and science

    The US was objectively the best when the government controlled the media in the 1950’s and encouraged math and science and nuclear families

  8. Like I said, neo-fascism is the only way.

    Time to deal with the oligarchs in Godfather fashion.

  9. 2 points:

    1. The First Amendment does not exist in reality. It is an airy abstraction and nothing else. In the US no one would dare say anything that is not acceptable to the official line. Thus, freedom of speech is freedom to say what you are expected to say and not to say what you are not expected to say or else. Thus, Putin shutting down organs is simply a more honest way of doing it. Not only that, but, in the US, it is the right side that is suppressed, in Russia, Putin is suppressing the wrong side. A little bit of difference there, despite the principle being similar.

    2. They are going to nationalize the big industries. Hurray. As they never should have stopped doing. Coal and oil and energy should be public utilities anyway. As should agriculture and healthcare. Shit. They’re exactly like electric lights. Everybody in the country needs them, every day. Hurray for nationalization. From Putin’s lips to some American oligarch’s ears.

    When I was vacationing in southern Spain a few years back, some areas had so many small mansions owned by Russians that there was a radio station broadcasting in Russian and real estate adverts in the streets were written in cyrillic. You could drive along large stretches of the Spanish Med coast listening to Russian radio stations. Those Russians owning the small mansions are probably trying to sell now.

    Freedom of speech is not the exclusive domain of the liberal ideology. I’ve done business in several completely illiberal polities and my local partners frequently engaged in all kinds of criticisms of their leaders without consequences. Even in Saudi Arabia I heard elites speaking of religion as mere bullshit to maintain power while dining at fancy restaurants. When I expressed my surprise they just replied that they are not planning to publish those views. You are in trouble when you start to act on those opinions in an organized manner, i.e. sedition. Otherwise your leaders don’t care much what you say, i.e. freedom of speech. On the other hand freedom of speech can be easily curtailed in liberal polities. So in my experience the difference between liberal and illiberal polities with regards to freedom of speech is a matter of degree, not a qualitative difference.

    So the 5’th columnists are the LGBT Western supporting liberals and 6’th column (Saker terminology) are the Nationalists / Nazi’s who somehow get along with the LGBT liberals and Jewish leadership, just like in Ukraine.

    I got into a Facebook debate with one of those Russian Nationalists. She kept complaining about Putin’s willingness to jail “nationalist” activists who wanted fewer non-Russian (ethnically, that is) people in Moscow. She claimed her movement paralleled “white nationalist” movements in the West. She had no answer when I asked her if any alternative she proposed could fail to advance Western neo-con objectives in Russia. Curt Doolittle has the same blind spot–can’t see how his system objectively advances neo-con objectives.

    Human quality matters more than ideological conformity. A nationalistic potato farmer is just an agreeable net negative.

    Beware of any freedom granted by the state : emitting freedom is a function no state can perform, by definition. It can only restrict freedoms. With each freedom proclaimed by a state comes a mirror image constraint. The first amendment namely guarantees that the government won’t prevent a private person to express any opinion provided they don’t intend thereby to sow public chaos, like shouting fire in a theatre full to brim when there ain’t, and provided also the content of their message is not a call to harm another innocent individual or party for no reason. That sounds great, but along with the individual’s right to free expression comes also his adversary’s right to sue him for defamation, which is most logically also part of free expression. Anybody you express yourself freely about or about whose domain of interest you express yourself is entitled to feel offended if he can prove that his image or his source of revenue is jeopardized by your free expression. The first amendment has mostly been used indeed to defend individuals and party from defamation. But there is no logical limit for an individual or for a party to declare themselves offended. Any act of free expression on somebody’s part can logically be interpreted as defamation by another party and what decides in such a case is the capacity to pay for the best lawyer in town to have justice on your side. In practice the protection as per the First Amendment is not something granted to individuals in possession of their speech or pen only, it is granted to individuals and parties who possess the material means of self expression including the diploma entitling you to discuss a certain domain of expertise. You are supposed to be very accurately informed about what you are talking about and to have acquired that information in a legal way. The First Amendment doesn’t cover at all the free expression of lay people in topics reserved to experts. In practice you have be a publishing enterprise to prevail yourself of that amendment, the writer who doesn’t possess the means to spread his message is not taken into account unless he forms a common party with his publisher. The first Amendment was devised mostly to be invoked by churches you preached for so as for the state to stay neutral between them all, but Catholicism was not included since Catholicism was an enemy the American State’s very Manifest destiny was to get the planet rid of.

    Could you write about the Russian Church / State situation incl. outlook too? Are they still teaching to sacrifice the other cheek for the Jew & sorts?
    Tolerating evil (Jewish) media is the last virtue before the downfall. Besides, the Jew media is by far the biggest and most vicious censor than a serious state fight for the continuing existence of its people and integrity.
    The Moscow-Maidan, the destruction of the USSR, with the Jelzman (Jew) & Gorbachov (Jew?) crimes were according to former GDR officials planned (incl. “the fall of the Berlin wall”) from 1986 onwards. The German part was propagated as a spontaneous push of the freedom (“= US”) loving German people (). Now we know, that was another hoax on us to put the most disgusting Poolish Jew Anjela Kazmierczak aka “Frau Doctor Merkel” (with a false Dr. title) as “leader” against all of the German remnants into office for the sole benefit and enlargement of Jewish scum on earth, particularly in Germany and the final destruction of anything German.
    Your writing confirms to me that the real problem is the Jew (‘s mafia codex). A carefully acting power Putin (see his book “First Person”) seems a rel. negligible order of magnitude, unless he turns out as a Jewish stogy (like Trump). Putin is physically a grandfather with a love for his country it seems. So it seems from afar. Might you appreciate grandfather autocracy when for a century you have not had a single government liking its country let alone its natives?! If the Jews loose too much power they will just kill Putin… Was Stalin not killed the moment he tried to clean out Jewish scum?
    NATO-EU (“EUSSR”), is a Jewish project of destroying the European peoples, just the way the USSR was a Jewish project of destroying White Russia (and PRussia) – Amalek. If Russia takes on the evil traitors from Natostan all honors go to Russia no matter how it will end.

    Freedom of speech is a great idea that has yet to be tried.

    With America’s media being almost entirely owned and controlled by a half-dozen companies, all of which are more Jewish than the Knesset, we should first worry about achieving free speech in America before we lecture Putin or Russia.

    Imprisonment by the authorities is a more honest form of repression than using ostensibly private companies to deny you employment, housing, bank accounts or using criminal networks like antifa to maim or kill you in the street.

    As for which narrative one should go after, well I say that the essence of having a free opinion is to teach people to think for themselves, which is exactly what American youth are taught to forgo as group -think drilled by the matrix of control from kindergarten to secondary education to higher education along with a deep state that has its tentacles into Hollywood and the celebrity world, all combine to create the perfect automaton who would still more than twenty years after 9/11 talk about Islamic terrorism and deride anyone who challenges the official narrative as a conspiracy theorist.

    It is all a matter of will; anyone who realises he was beguiled by the media should simply strive to read in between the lines or seek reliable alternative sources of news, but then this requires discipline such as letting go of a ball game in favour of reading and doing some research which for the vast majority of Americans specifically and Westerners in general would get them to label such a fellow as a nerd.

    To reiterate: we now see active measures being taken by Putin’s administration to shut down the Liberal media and to strip the enemy oligarchs of their assets.

The end result should look quite similar to the Chinese model, which Putin has often praised before in the past for its ability to defend national interests and promote economic projects that are in line with the government’s own stated goals.

    This seems like a good idea. The Chinese model is proven to work and Putin’s domestic ZioGlob will only ever give him trouble. Same with his ArmenGlob.

    A point that the article doesn’t make so clear, is that the Chinese model works because its operated by ethnic Chinese in China – suggesting a Russian equivalent with the Russian media owned and operated by ethnic Russians in Russia.

    This tackles head on that most sensitive and forbidden neo-liberal Western topic of race. It’s understandably taboo, because should the US decide to restrict media ownership/power to the majority race (Anglo/European) then that would spell the end of the ZioGlob.

    Russia had big problems with covid mortality b/c their doctors applied the exact same protocols as Western countries. Their Sputnik V is recombinant DNA tech as AstraZeneca’s aka Vaxzevria, only the adenovirus is different but the algorithm is the same. Russia first developed the rDNA tech for a vaccine against Ebola to expose the glycoprotein via which the virus infects cells. The thing is the ratio (possible vaccine after-effects) / (virus lethality) differs by several orders of magnitude between Ebola and SARS-CoV-2 and while the high kill rate of the former can justify the risks posed by the vaccine, it just isn’t the case with the latter.

Most people that I know who had Covid, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, had very little symptoms. A few cases were more serious, but neither lockdowns, masks or vaccines seem to have helped them very much.

Nations invaded by illegal immigrants who feed crime and prostitution; destroyed in their social fabric by politically correct ideologies; knowingly brought to bankruptcy by reckless economic and fiscal policies; led towards poverty by the cancellation of labor and social security protections; deprived of a future by the destruction of the family and the moral and intellectual corruption of the new generations.”

    Fun fact: both “privatization” and nationalization are left-wing. They’re simply different flavours of the public costs, private profits scheme.

    If stuff was actually privatized it would have been a good idea. It wasn’t, so it wasn’t. Doubtless it’s “private” the way American medicine is “private,” lol.

    Check: the Russian “Oligarchs” needed offshore banks and lines of credit. Echo needed funding. These were not self-funded, profitable ventures. It was all foreign political meddling, most likely Fed money in the end.

    Standard Satanist playbook: set up a false dichotomy and constrain all thought inside it by making them seem like opposites. The point is to ensure nobody thinks of uniting decision-making and responsibility.

    Notably free speech is not and has never been real. Echo being a CIA op is not some weird outlier or bizarre corruption. Free speech, or more precisely free publishing, is always (or at least, has always been) tightly State-controlled, not free in the slightest. The question is whether your political enemies are allowed to attack you with impunity or not. Turns out allowing low-level war is not good for anyone.

    The solution is to stop pretending free publishing is real, and end it. Turns out it’s totally okay to simply shut down a lying piece of shit, legally or extralegally. In fact the ends do justify the means – if they don’t, it means someone was lying about the ends.

    Even insofar as free publishing is real, stuff is worth at most what you pay for it. Free as in speech is, as it turns exactly, exactly the same as free as in beer. Free beer is cheap swill, and free speech is, somehow, even worse. You don’t suffer from being deprived of “free” publishing, you benefit.

    In particular free publishing means crazies crowd out any sane speakers, for reasons you can work out on your own. It’s sponsorship of mental illness.

    This synthesis between the state and big business has been defined by Marxists in the 70s as the agreed upon textbook definition of Fascism even though it was practiced by Monarchies, Communist states, National Socialist states and literally every single nation state in history during times of war or economic crisis.

    And it’s always been a terrible idea.

    Marxism is so mad about Fascism because Marxism is Fascism and has to work extremely hard so this obvious tight brotherly bond is not recognized. Narcissism of small differences. And yes, having the State command your businesses has been very thoroughly shown to be catastrophic in all cases. It’s what you do if you hate yourself; when you think you have too many feet and it’s time to shoot one off.

    Fascism has a terrible reputation because it’s a terrible idea. Public-private “partnership” is a terrible idea. It’s literally Satanism. A lie. You pretend non-private things aren’t private. A society that bases its practices on lies suffers and dies – the only reason this isn’t immediately obvious is because it’s so common. Every society is choking on its Satanist lies, it’s merely a question of which chokes to death faster.

    It’s called Conquest #3. See also: public choice theory. See also: the perverse incentives of tax funding, as a special case of all coercive funding schemes.

    Really now? Privatization is considered worse than Stalinism? Are you blind, or a liar? Satan would laugh. Frankly, so do I. Bit of a match made in heaven there.

    Durov created VK, a superior Facebook clone that rapidly gained popularity in St. Petersburg and the rest of Russia to a lesser extent.

    Facebook is actually LifeLog, a DARPA program. It’s really not hard to make better quality than the defence department.

    The problem is that having fled to London, Durov has almost certainly been bought out by the CIA. Or maybe, if he and Russia are really lucky, bought by MI6. Free publishing is a myth.

    It is worth pointing out that the administrative team of Durov’s VK Facebook clone is pro-Ukrainian and pro-LGBTQ+

    Yup, there it is. Moderation run out of Langley. Thanks for the free call centre employees, CIA.

    But the process by which consent is manufactured among the masses

    Remember the masses don’t really have opinions. They don’t even have taste, let alone logical thoughts. Not bad taste – no taste at all. They don’t have preferences. All they want is to be behind the strong horse, because they don’t like getting trampled. Like children, they cannot meaningfully consent.

    The question is more about which local lord will seize them with “charisma,” rather than about consent.

    Of course this is the whole point of “democracy.” If you can get a society to pretend that these NPCs are real adults, then you can launder your control through the so-called masses. “I’m not serving my own selfish interests, I’m just doing what ‘the people’ want, see?”

    It’s really important not to confuse free speech with free publishing.

    Free speech means you can say what you want down the pub. Any leaders who gets activated about what folk say after a few beers is a weak leader and deserves his imminent ignominious death. They themselves don’t really know what they’re saying. If you expect them to be on point, you’re an idiot.

    Free publishing means sponsoring crazies and allowing foreign powers to fund propaganda on domestic soil. These acts are obvious crimes and should be treated as such.

    In short the guy down the pub with his opinion isn’t being paid for by anyone. If you’re being paid to speak, it behooves you to know what the fuck you’re talking about. Logically, it behooves local security to confiscate the funding of anyone who doesn’t.

    Naturally, most of these media projects are run by Jews and promote the same neoliberal agenda that their cousins in the West promote. And, as victims of the Liberal Occupation Government, we should all understand that Liberal Democracy cannot function without Liberal institutions, of which the media is certainly one of the most important. The media’s role, after all, is to shape political narratives and to outline the acceptable parameters of political discourse. It is the Liberal media that decides what is reasonable, desirable and moral and, of course, what is extremist, hateful and unethical. The Liberal media’s self-appointed job is to decided what should be shut out of civil discourse either through soft or hard methods of censorship.

    What is called here “the media’s role” is the role historically played by organized religion. Enacting “freedom of religion” and the subsequent death of organized religion did not make humans any less religious but instead distributed religion’s roles to other institutions: news media, entertainment, and academia. Significantly, two of these are key activities that organized religion played up until the Endarkenment. E.g. when academics play dress-up, they dress like monks.

    Once the oligarchs, via their Jewish and Masonic running dogs, had squashed organized religion, they replaced it with the worship of Mammon, our current religion: one which the aforementioned institutions promote, and one which the oligarchs find most congenial. Smashing liberal institutions is not enough. They must be replaced by something. More accurately, they will and must inevitably be replaced by something. By what? And what control can be exercised over by what? Presumably, the intended something in Russia is the Orthodox Church which Putin has patronized. Whether that will work is to be seen.

  74. Bill says:

    Remember the masses don’t really have opinions. They don’t even have taste, let alone logical thoughts. Not bad taste – no taste at all. They don’t have preferences. All they want is to be behind the strong horse, because they don’t like getting trampled. Like children, they cannot meaningfully consent.

    The question is more about which local lord will seize them with “charisma,” rather than about consent.

    Of course this is the whole point of “democracy.” If you can get a society to pretend that these NPCs are real adults, then you can launder your control through the so-called masses. “I’m not serving my own selfish interests, I’m just doing what ‘the people’ want, see?”

    Free speech means that you are free to believe and regurgitate – or else – whatever absurdity you are spoon-fed by the controller-class.

    Here a Toronto restaurant owner had put display cards on his tables revealing the various / different price discounts that he had to give to Visa, MC, and Amex, etc. card-users to conceal the concealed-credit-charges from the card-user:

    American Express is making an example of a local restauranteur who displays the charge card’s rates, [by revoking its agency status or licence to accept Amex Cards], …..the charge card firm counters that it will take action against any restaurant that accepts American Express but directly or indirectly discourages customers from using it….. Fabian Siebert, proprietor of Marcel’s Bistro and president of the Toronto Culinary Purchasers Society, chastised American Express for its actions against La Bodega: “They’re just picking on one (restaurant) to make an example in hopes everyone else will just shut up,” Siebert said….. American Express spokesperson Ivan Shaffer said the company was simply protecting the rights of its card members…..Amex’s administrative fees are higher because the firm doesn’t make any money through interest charges [!!!] as does credit companies like Visa, Shaffer added….. [All card-issuers are required to treat the fees internally as interest charges received from card-users and not merchants. If the card-user does not pay, then the card-issuer never receives the “Merchant” fee, and that reality of the credit business cannot be avoided by a label.] (Toronto Star, January 15, 1992)

    Either Mr. Shaffer has no clue about what his employer actually does for a living – or else he is a professional and / or pathological liar. Inquiring minds want to know.


    While I was in the process of reading House of Cards [the American Express Story] in 1993 I asked a good friend who was the general manager of a chain of computer stores in Edmonton whether his stores accepted American Express and it was as if I had hit some kind of nerve. He immediately blurted out: “Those #\$%&@’s want 6%!!! I don’t even make 6% on #\$%^& computer hardware!!!” What he meant of course was that he could not afford to give a 6% price discount to customers who wished to pay with short-term revolving credit from American Express.

    Typically a business owner has to give a concealed-price-discount of 3% for Mastercard, 4% for Visa, and 5% for American Express, so that Visa, Mastercard and American Express can conceal and collect a corresponding concealed-credit-charge from their respective card-users as a rake-off from their full-payment at the end of the grace-period.

    Amex’s longtime fixed “Merchant Discount” price-discount-and-concealed-credit-charge rate of 5% translates to an effective or real interest rate of 144% per annum as received by Amex at the end of a 21-day grace-period.

    And just the tiniest tip-of-the-iceberg is the \$200 million a day that gets skimmed by all the card-issuers from the VAT and other sales tax revenue that is run through these accounts worldwide. The concealed credit charges are technically exempt from the sales-taxes but they illegally tax it anyway otherwise people might become aware of the concealed credit charge itself.

    To be clear, the governments receive a bonus \$200 million a day to which they are not entitled, by applying the sales taxes to the expressly-tax-exempt concealed credit charge. The government goes to the merchant and says – we don’t care that the concealed credit charge is exempt under the sales-tax legislation, and we don’t care that the bank only gave you \$6.79 for the sales tax. The voucher claims that the tax is \$7 and you are going to pay us \$7. If the bank kept \$0.21 of the tax revenue then that is your problem and not ours.

    The card-issuers concurrently collect a duplicate \$200 million a day by then billing their card-user for \$7 even though the bank only paid out \$6.79 to the merchant. So the total racketeering-based rake-off just in respect to the tax-revenue is \$400 million a day.

    The main-event remains the \$3 billion per day in total fee-rake-offs but the little \$400 million a day sleight-of-hand in respect of the tax revenue is especially telling.

    BUT BUT BUT What about free speech!?

    You are free to speak about anything you want – as long as it does not broach the subject of naked racketeering by the financial manipulators.

    The above newspaper article is now just over 30 years old and precisely nothing has changed in the meantime. Canada could pay off its national debt just by compelling the private banks to pay back all of the sales-tax-revenue that they have skimmed over the past 32 years (plus interest of course at the same rate that the tax people charge on late filings or payments).

    Actually yes it has – something has changed. All the card-issuers now kick-back about 20% of the gross (credit/charge-card) rake-off or about \$200 million per day, as membership rewards and air-miles like programs to card-users who remain oblivious to the fact that every \$100 in rewards that they get costs \$500 in higher prices.

    It is interesting however that the rewards-kickbacks and the sales-tax-skimming are roughly the same amounts.

    It also conveniently works out to an annual global kick-back of about \$10 billion directly to judges, lawyers, politicians, political parties, and the owners and employees of credit reporting agencies.

    They almost never talk about it. But it’s not a free speech problem. It’s a mens rea problem.

    Ah, but what about those who disapprove? Well, they are Russian citizens, which makes it none of my goddamn business. The biggest cause of trouble in international relations seems to be when the do-gooders of one nation (the US usually) decide that Russia or China or Saudi Arabia are not playing nice with their own citizens. I am not sure when this lack of respect for national sovereignty began–maybe with the UN, certainly has increased over the decades since.

    But one thing is clear, Russia has wanted a buffer zone ever since Napoleon. If that weren’t enough, Hitler’s betrayal of Stalin proved once again that countries west of Russian were not to be trusted.

    Finally, NATO, instead of dissolving or drawing down after “winning” the Cold War, redefined its purpose to “contain Russia”. Russia sees this as “violate Russian sovereignty–yet again”! The US threw a shit fit when Khrushchev wanted to put some missiles in its own self-proclaimed sphere of influence.

    It is unrealistic to think any of the major powers, or major powers yet to rise, will not want such a sphere of influence, buffer zone, of whatever. The US has been lucky not to have to fight on its own soil since we went to killin’ each other back in the 1860s.

This Warrior-Princess conquered the tribe that killed her husband, enamored the Roman Emperor so much he wanted to marry her, burned a city to the ground using only birds, established one of the earliest tax systems, and is single handedly responsible for saving the very name of Russia.”

    Not necessarily: most witches were “good”, so many did not support eliminating them. But regardless they were not hunted because they were evil, but because they were heretic.

    Besides, many of the witch trials were conducted very well, to high standards of evidence and probity, and the resulting convictions were sound, because the accused believed themselves to be witches and to have witch powers, that is they were guilty of heresy. This is a point completely independent of whether witches really have supernatural powers and whether they are evil.

    To call war the last act of diplomacy is unjustifiable bullshit. Despite illusions to the contrary, the last act of diplomacy is actually the discovery that your counterpart desires war and will abide no other result.

    He (and ever increasingly, she) who wants war shall have it. Diplomats on the winning side should remain on hand to receive instructions from the chief commander for negotiating terms of surrender and resolution, once the necessary warring has produced the necessary outcome.

    I have not heard Mr. Shoigu speak over any diplomatic initiative by the Foreign Ministry. With respect, I am unsure why Mr. Lavrov is heard to speak so prominently over the present initiative by the Russian military.

    Reading this article I got the impression that WW3 is inavoidable. The cosmopolitan elite that run the west couldn’ t care less of the destruction of the reimnants of the european civilization and Russians are circling the wagon. Adolf Hitler was in a similar situation in 1939 and , as Putin does now, realized that he had to switch to war mode . That meant for the Fuhrer to put the economy of the nation at the service of the miltary and to give up any hope to be acepted by the British empire. History repeat itself in 2022 and Putin has to walk the some road to war as the German dictator and he is fighting the very some group . The difference is that this group is now much stronger that it rules almost everywhere and its power is such that nobody even dears to nominate it. Russia , in the other end, is also much stronger that Germany was , and the backbone of the western financial empire is rotten to the core . I have the opinion that the financial elite had the plan to crush the old golem US and replace it with the Communist China and pushed Russia away for this purpose. They fear the most an alliance between the Christian nations to be formed an authoritarian conservative consensus to emerge , the ripudiation of the public debts and the nationalization of the banks. They wish to establish a new world order in wich their dominion is consolidated and the chinese model is applied to the masses dispossed of any inheritance and power . The populations of the west are now hostages as much as the Ukranians and they undergo propaganda h 24 , but after too much of it in the last years many are not buying anymore. The Chinese leadership is rejecting the cultural subversions and ,Soros words, is diverging from the globalists policies
    So if war will be is not written that it will end the same as the previous one . Should Russia loose is clear that historians would swear that Putin wanted to run the world and that was exterminating innocent people, maybe even gassing homosexual and jews. Should Russia win , probably won’ t be any west anymore, just a big nuclear wasteland. To beat Nato , in fact the Russians have to go full nuclear.and they say more than once they do not want a planet without Russia. Who can blame them .? Maybe this is what the cosmopolitan elite wants , a world without the white people . But who can assure them that the Chinese will grant them the privileges the europeans ,east ,west and overseas gave them for more then a century ?

    This is just funny. Russia is what it has always been. A kleptocratic kakistocracy. Under Putin, that has worsened, and promises to get worse. Putin is one of the major beneficiaries of the kleptocracy. He is the major played in the kakistocracy.

    Actually, about 5 years ago I read that Putin said if the US has a civil war Russia would provide assistance to Rural America.

    It’s such a strange thing.. 20 years ago I hated Russia with the full fury of an indoctrinated young man.. then I learned about the Bolshevik revolution and how Russians were just as much captives to the USSR as the Warsaw pact. I won’t say I forgave Russians for the cold war.. I just realized there was nothing to forgive.

    You know, the mustard seed of my evolution from zogbot to truly being awake to what runs the world was Architecture.. growing up in the South, the landscape was spotted with beautiful old buildings.. and even ruins so beautiful I would marvel. I realized something somewhere went terribly wrong.. I was probably about 8 when it occured to me.

    When Russia started building beautiful churches again I took note.. it led me to study Russian history for my own enjoyment and I was amazed. I remain gobsmacked at how ignorant my countrymen are outside the narrative the tiny hats have laid down. The lack of curiosity even for countries whose history is so entwined with ours and had had such an impact on us.

    Every witch trial had to prove a devil’s pact, sexual or otherwise. There was never any evidence for actual devil’s who were able to perform supernatural deeds and transfer them to the witch, like flying through the air or moving crops from one field to another, influencing weather etc

    You are correct about great pains taken at trials. A confession was necessary to convict, the ultimate proof, usually obtained by torture. No other proof but witnesses and confessions existed, even though lesser crimes were often part of the trial, like infanticide. But they were never sufficient to convict anyone as a witch

  148. @Doug Ryler

    Judaism is everything but a religion – religion as understandable by really religious people (not needing institutions). Jews/Judaism are mafia.
    Judaism is mafioso; the Talmud is a mafia codex. The bible is a disgusting conglomerate of crime stories.
    Anything negative and evil has Judaism underneath. Judaism is the harbour of negativity – the negative force on earth…
    Lucifer – the fallen angel – is, oh vey, Jaweh, the Jew’s chood, (chood like choolodomor or choloclause); ethymologically spoken.
    The fallen one – his choice to get into the dirt – is working for the grounded one below (ground & soil), the devil. In effect is the devil the Jew’s god (little god or low god without the high or big G etc. pp.) Find out (unless you are a Jew happy sucking out mankind).
    And God – The Good – is allowing, sort of tolerating all this.
    This hardly understandable “tolerance” (which is actually complete “intolerance”, because the bottom line is that God does not tolerate evil…) makes the Jew very brazen (“because G-d allows us to do…”).

    Jews are differentiable, “pluralistic”; some differentiate biologically like the king of Seth (Obimbo the breechloader and his tribes of birth and choice). There are far to many ethnic Jews and their disgusting or even shocking mutants (e.g. with blond hair and blue eyes). Example: fake prince of Norway and his real Norwegian wife with white offsprings.

  149. @Anon

    That is not at all the reason coutries nationalize companies in wartime. They do so for centralized control and coordination of critical (which in wartime becomes basically all) industries.

    War is not paid for with “money”, other than the domestic money which a government can create at will. That money obviously does not need to be “stored in coffers”, it can’t, and isn’t. It is only representative of resources (which are limited, and can’t be created out of nothing), whether in peacetime or in wartime. The anology in the human body would be the blood cells which carry around oxygen, nutrients, waste products, etc., not the limited resources the body needs. The body does not keep a “war chest” of blood cells for times of starvation or lack of oxygen, because that would be completely pointless, even harmful.

    The present situation Russia is in should make this very clear. Imagine if they still had access to their foreign currency reserves. How would they even use that foreign currency to “pay for” a war? What would they buy with these dollars and from whom?

    Putin’s achievements so far:

    1. In the space of a few days, he’s vaporized 200 years of anti-Polish propaganda (of Austrian, German, Russian and Soviet Russian provenance) in the Ukraine.

    2. He’s led the Ukrainians to take up arms against their so-called Russian brothers in order to defend their country. The Ukrainians are now doing what the Poles did in 1920 during the Polish-Soviet War, when relatively few Ukrainians were willing to fight the Red Army. Without the Ukrainian “brother nation” under its thumb, the Russian Empire’s days are numbered. Unfortunately for Putin, the Chinese general staff are watching all this.

    3. He’s given a boost to the new European Union which is gradually coming into existence in what used to be called Eastern Europe. Britain and America now see that the best way to foil Putin’s scheme to set up a German-Russian Condominium is to make Eastern Europe “great again”. The huge influx of Ukrainian refugees to Poland goes a long way to solving Poland’s demographic problems.

    4. In an age of smartphones and instant news reports, Putin’s shown the whole world that he’s (hopefully) the last in a very long series of monsters ruling from the Kremlin. Even the politically-correct BBC has now started to make the comparison between Putin and Hitler.

    5. With his latest series of war crimes (the shelling of children’s hospitals as well as residential areas, the indiscriminate slaughter of non-combatants etc.) he’s dealt the final death blow to Marxist ideology. The only hope for Russia now is to return to real Christianity (which has nothing to do with the KGB version currently “in force” in Russia). This is bad news for all “leftists” and their “progressive” modern variants.

    The way General Park Chung-Hee did it (South Korea 1961-1979) was to keep the assets/ management private but to seriously lean on corporations (carrots and sticks) to serve national development goals. For example they were obliged to develop export quality goods and the proportion of exports in their sales had to increase year over year.

    They received government support and preferential financing but if they failed, they mostly lost control and were forced into mergers with more successful national competitors.

    That way he harnessed the best placed and most skilled industrialists to his national development project. They didn’t like it, but had no choice.

    The only “restoration” Russian invaders are reviving is their ruin. Those imbeciles just made a strategic mistake. Removing those pro-Russian regions of Crimea and Donbass were also mistakes, but the open war against Ukrainians was a capital one. There is no recovery from strategic mistakes. The fate of Russia is to be hated by Ukrainians. After the war, do you know which regions will be the most passionate haters of Russia and Russkies? Exactly those Russkies are have been saying they are pro-Russian: the eastern and southeastern ones. Today central regions and the capital Kyiv are the most anti-Russian areas. After the war, eastern and southeastern ones will be. City of Mariupol for example. I read somewhere that 48% of Mariupol citizens ethnically defined themselves as Ukrainians while 44% as Russians. Yet you see, even those 44% of so-called “Russians” are passionately fighting against Russian invasion. They are obviously no ethnic Russians else they would never put up such fierce resistance. Things like these will always remain remembered in their collective psyche. You should be careful against whom you wage war. Wars are final ventures. What ignorant Russkies don’t understand that their war against Ukrainians is also a farewell to Ukrainians. Not at all what they intended to do, I am sure. Such poor understanding about nature of things you both display. Freemasonry especially.

    Ukrainians have already won the war: their men, women and even children have shown their willingness to sacrifice. They are displaying that vigorous essence, that primal will to exist. That means that they truly exist as a people, for there would be no will to exist as a nation-state if opposite was true.

    Do you know what the difference is between a multicultural and multi-ethnic masonic construct of Yugoslavia and today’s Ukraine? Yugoslavia was erected against the will of nations which it was comprised of. None was willing to make sacrifice for that multi-ethnic political construct. Yugoslavia’s very existence was seen as an occupation, and sooner or later all occupations must end. It is just a matter of time, for the fate of all multicultural entities was determined long time ago. You can find it even in the Bible. Haven’t you heard about Babylon? Do you know how many a Babylon have repeated the determined fate of the first Babylon? There were thousands of Babylons since the first one fell, and they all followed the fate of the first one. You see, Yugoslavia’s existence had to be forced from the outside, whereas that of Ukraine is trying to be destroyed from the outside. Yugoslavia was an abomination noone wanted, whereas Ukraine has ethnic Ukrainians who will fight and die for her. One’s existence was forced, the other will even fight against a powerful aggressor in order to preserve itself. Quite the contrast. That’s because the first one was a multi-ethnic and multicultural abomination, while the other one is a nation-state with its inherent will for existence.

    Do you see behavior of Ukranians in the Ukrainian city of Kherson which is under Russian occupation? Observe it. Have you no mind to notice that Ukrainians see Russians as occupiers? And mind you, Kherson is according to Russkies a “pro-Russian” city who might even want to be part of Russia. What was truly pro-Russian, went with Russians in 2014. Crimea and Donbass.

    The numbers are almost unbelievable but I think that in order to balance all of the cross-leveraged-super-fraud in the financial markets, they are going to have to jack-up the merchant-fee-rates to circa 20%.

    But that simply cannot be done if there is any alternative – and that is the primary reason for getting rid of cash.

    There is no money – only derivatives of money. Banks are not in the money-lending business – they are in the credit-reinsurance business. And what is the inured peril?

    Answer: That the party holding the bank’s liability to pay cash will demand conversion from the bank.

    Solution: Eliminate the insured peril by getting rid of it. It is the same in effect as neutralizing all life-insurance policies by making it illegal to make a claim.

  166. The Anti-Russia conflict has gone from ethnic to ideological to ethnic.

    Prior to the WWI, the Anti-Russia position had four components:

    1. Anglos and Germans who looked down on Slavs as inferiors.

    2. Western self-loathing Slavs who wanted to identify with the West.

    3. Russia Pan-Slavicism(ill-served by poor leadership).

    4. Jews who hated Russians as top anti-semites, as well as backward inferiors.

    The conflict was essentially ethnic.

    The West regarded Russian Slavs as inferiors who had more land and resources than they deserved. And Germans especially wanted a big chunk of that. This was especially true in World War II. Hitler’s animus against Russia wasn’t merely ideological but racial/ethnic.

    But while Nazi Germany regarded Russia with ethnic hostility, that aspect ebbed among many Jews and left-leaning Anglos after the Bolshevik Revolution. They came to admire Russia for its ideological role as vanguards of the future. (Also, Jews took pride in many Bolsheviks being Jewish.)

    After WWII, the Cold War pit US against USSR along ideological terms. Capitalism vs communism.
    It wasn’t about hating Russian people or culture. Just the ideology. It was different from Nazi Germany vs Soviet Union what was more a ethnic than ideological conflict: Lebensraum for the German Volk vs defense of Motherland. Cold War was mainly about ideological differences.

    But post-Cold-War, Jews took control of the West. The main theme of the West became serving Jewish Supremacism. Jewish ethnocentricism(and its use of homos and blacks) became central to ‘Western Values’. Whites in US, Canada, and EU were denied right of identity, territory, and history. (Now, blacks are taking over European historical roles in TV and movies. And of course, nonwhites invade white lands, and half the white population welcome the invasion as ‘inclusion’, something they’ve been indoctrinated and idolatrized with.)
    Russia said NO to much of this and insisted on Russian identity, history, and territory.

    So, this pit the West vs Russia along ethnic lines. Sure, there is talk of ‘liberal democracy’ vs ‘autocracy’, but that’s all bogus. It’s really about Jewish ethnocentrism(that totally took over the West) vs Russian insistence on sovereignty and regional sphere of influence. Thus, the conflict is about identity than ideology. It’s Jewish Supremacism vs Russian Sovereignty-ism. Jews hate the idea of any major white country having any sovereignty and the power to say NO to Jewish demands.

    So, the Jewish War on Russia is rather like Nazi Germany’s war on Russia. Both are ethnic in nature. Then, it’s only fitting that Jews would ally with Sub-Nazis in the war on Russia. Jews see Slavs as inferiors who should serve Jews, and Sub-Nazi Ukrainians are self-loathing Slavs who prefer to see themselves as ‘Aryans’.

    No, we don’t. We have this statement from Putin: “Whoever does not miss the Soviet Union has no heart. Whoever wants it back has no brain.”

    The Ukraina is the RUS (of Kiew).
    Ukraine is historically Russian till the synagouge of Satan moved in the church of the Anti-Christ of Rome and the RUS got furious about evilness manifested.
    The anger the Jew misused again and gave the people starvation – the Holodomor of the ZionLendSki.

    Priss dont be a prison factor…

    “…Germans who looked down on Slavs as inferiors” is Jewish mythology.
    Germans do not use the word Slav; Russians are called Russians (not more and not less).
    As a matter of fact “Slavs” have never existed, but slaves have and guess whose?

    Just now Putin mentioned one of those supposedly downlooking Germans:

    Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated women on International Women’s Day and quoted words written, according to contemporaries, by Catherine the Great.
    In his greeting, the President recalled the words of Catherine II: “I will defend my homeland with my tongue and my pen and my sword as long as I have enough life.
    Vladimir Putin: “Today I would like to recall the words written, according to contemporaries, by a great woman who in Russia was called ‘Mother’. This is Empress Catherine II, whose sculptural image is installed here in the Kremlin. She was not Russian by birth, but was proud to be Russian. These lines: “I will defend my motherland with tongue and pen and sword as long as I have enough life.” And in our time the words “motherland”, “mother”, and “beloved” are on a par for us. It will always be so.”
    Vladimir Putin also expressed his admiration and gratitude to women, noting that they make the world a better and kinder place.
    Vladimir Putin: “Our dear women, you make the world a better, kinder place through your sensitivity, compassion and spiritual generosity, you combine charming tenderness with amazing inner strength”.
    The President added that we live in a difficult time and listed its hallmarks: “global economic challenges and problems, military conflicts and the inevitable need to protect our people and our country, pandemics and the fight for the lives and health of millions of citizens”.
    However, Putin stressed, “even during the hardest trials of the Great Patriotic War, nothing could prevent Russian men from declaring their love for their women, and this love served as a support and inspiration.”
    Vladimir Putin: “And today sincere words of admiration and gratitude to wives, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, daughters, girlfriends for your loyalty, reliability and support in any trials are sounded.
    The President called March 8 one of Russia’s favourite holidays and noted that this day has always been imbued with the brightest feelings.

    RUSSIA & PRUSSIA used to be one (koje of URUS) till the Jew got a foothold. He got a foothold because of naivity, nativity, naturalness; the white-light-bright could not imagine in their wildest dream the possibility of what Judaism embodies…that was the beginning of your history – his stories, the Jews stories. His bloody deeds he hides behind his stories called “history”. Todays “Ukrainian mind” is moulded by the Jew as many know by now.

    Up to 28nm China is almost fully independent in semiconductor technology now… they are less so to 14nm — and less than that to 7nm. But they are working feverishly. China and Russia both openly declared they understand the west does not want them to exist as balancers to their dominance. So China won’t stop buying anything from Russia – but when it comes to semiconductors below 28nm – it will comply…. But only until China has removed western (and now Japanese and South Korean) tech from it’s supply chains. Japan and South Korea joining US sanctions against Russia has shown China now they cannot rely on them to help them in their own self sufficiency (which they saw somewhat already when SK Hynix was threatened by the US when they wanted to send an EUV machine to their plant in Wuxi, China). China alone is 1/3 of global semiconductor supply so it is feasible for China to remove them. It will hurt all of those US/Japanese/Korean companies… Remember the whole issue with the Huawei CFO being arrested was because they claim she lied to HSBC that their subsidiary was doing business with Iran. Well the proof showed they never pretended they weren’t helping Iran and that the US had no jurisdiction since those were not US sanctions. It took 3 years but she was allowed to leave and the case was dropped. There should be no question that if China was willing to do that in order to keep its links with Iran – being that Russia is even more important – there should be little doubt. But what they did learn with Huawei is they have to remove US tech as quickly as possible. Though Huawei had to give up it’s most advanced (but not all) phones – it’s network and software businesses are doing just fine. Huawei 5G base stations have no US tech now – but they do have some Japanese and South Korean. So – the issue with Russia will be more tricky. The question is “what will Russia do?”. Will Russia allocate resources in the field to work with China so that Russia could replace the Japanese portions? If Kim in NK was able to focus on not just military tech – they could participate in that supply chain as they are just as intelligent as their brothers south of the 38th parallel. I don’t know what will happen going forward – but it seems the world is going back into blocs again.
    As long as all the other nations that are currently not joining the sanctions stay that way (especially India) – then I don’t think Russia will suffer all that much to be honest.

  183. Germany did the same. In 1930s Germany, the Jews owned all the newspapers, the banks and the film industry. They were spewing their hedonistic filth and Bolshevik rhetoric. They were terraforming for Communist Revolution. Propaganda WORKS. No matter the audience….relentless PROPAGANDA will sway them. It is a well studied dark art and the Jews are the Masters of Discourse. Every idiot in America today believes the Holocaust. That is the power of drip, drip, drip …Propaganda.

    Germany in the 1930s was a cesspool of hedonist filth, pornography, debauchery, homosexuality, and satanism. The Germans were a broken people. They were demoralized, befuddled and confused. Much like America today.

    Every Government that truly wants to protect its people will sooner or later take action clean up and restrict the corrosive, anti-Christian, demoralizing, and debauched Jewish influence.

    Take a gander at Legal Precept 23 below. We need this exact law in America today.

    The program of the NSDAP


    The program is the political foundation of the NSDAP and accordingly the primary political law of the State. It has been made brief and clear intentionally.

    All legal precepts must be applied in the spirit of the party program.

    Since the taking over of control, the Fuehrer has succeeded in the realization of essential portions of the Party program from the fundamentals to the detail.

    The Party Program of the NSDAP was proclaimed on the 24 February 1920 by Adolf Hitler at the first large Party gathering in Munich and since that day has remained unaltered. Within the national socialist philosophy is summarized in 25 points:

    1. We demand the unification of all Germans in the Greater Germany on the basis of the right of self-determination of peoples.

    2. We demand equality of rights for the German people in respect to the other nations; abrogation of the peace treaties of Versailles and St. Germain.

    3. We demand land and territory (colonies) for the sustenance of our people, and colonization for our surplus population.

    4. Only a member of the race can be a citizen. A member of the race can only be one who is of German blood, without consideration of creed. Consequently no Jew can be a member of the race.

    5. Whoever has no citizenship is to be able to live in Germany only as a guest, and must be under the authority of legislation for foreigners.

    6. The right to determine matters concerning administration and law belongs only to the citizen. Therefore we demand that every public office, of any sort whatsoever, whether in the Reich, the county or municipality, be filled only by citizens. We combat the corrupting parliamentary economy, office-holding only according to party inclinations without consideration of character or abilities.

    7. We demand that the state be charged first with providing the opportunity for a livelihood and way of life for the citizens. If it is impossible to sustain the total population of the State, then the members of foreign nations (non-citizens) are to be expelled from the Reich.

    8. Any further immigration of non-citizens is to be prevented. We demand that all non-Germans, who have immigrated to Germany since the 2 August 1914, be forced immediately to leave the Reich.

    9. All citizens must have equal rights and obligations.

    10. The first obligation of every citizen must be to work both spiritually and physically. The activity of individuals is not to counteract the interests of the universality, but must have its result within the framework of the whole for the benefit of all Consequently we demand:

    11. Abolition of unearned (work and labour) incomes. Breaking of rent-slavery.

    12. In consideration of the monstrous sacrifice in property and blood that each war demands of the people personal enrichment through a war must be designated as a crime against the people. Therefore we demand the total confiscation of all war profits.

    13. We demand the nationalization of all (previous) associated industries (trusts).

    14. We demand a division of profits of all heavy industries.

    15. We demand an expansion on a large scale of old age welfare.

    16. We demand the creation of a healthy middle class and its conservation, immediate communalization of the great warehouses and their being leased at low cost to small firms, the utmost consideration of all small firms in contracts with the State, county or municipality.

    17. We demand a land reform suitable to our needs, provision of a law for the free expropriation of land for the purposes of public utility, abolition of taxes on land and prevention of all speculation in land.

    18. We demand struggle without consideration against those whose activity is injurious to the general interest. Common national criminals, usurers, Schieber and so forth are to be punished with death, without consideration of confession or race.

    19. We demand substitution of a German common law in place of the Roman Law serving a materialistic world-order.

    20. The state is to be responsible for a fundamental reconstruction of our whole national education program, to enable every capable and industrious German to obtain higher education and subsequently introduction into leading positions. The plans of instruction of all educational institutions are to conform with the experiences of practical life. The comprehension of the concept of the State must be striven for by the school [Staatsbuergerkunde] as early as the beginning of understanding. We demand the education at the expense of the State of outstanding intellectually gifted children of poor parents without consideration of position or profession.

    21. The State is to care for the elevating national health by protecting the mother and child, by outlawing child-labor, by the encouragement of physical fitness, by means of the legal establishment of a gymnastic and sport obligation, by the utmost support of all organizations concerned with the physical instruction of the young.

    22. We demand abolition of the mercenary troops and formation of a national army.

    23. We demand legal opposition to known lies and their promulgation through the press. In order to enable the provision of a German press, we demand, that: a. All writers and employees of the newspapers appearing in the German language be members of the race: b. Non-German newspapers be required to have the express permission of the State to be published. They may not be printed in the German language: c. Non-Germans are forbidden by law any financial interest in German publications, or any influence on them, and as punishment for violations the closing of such a publication as well as the immediate expulsion from the Reich of the non-German concerned. Publications which are counter to the general good are to be forbidden. We demand legal prosecution of artistic and literary forms which exert a destructive influence on our national life, and the closure of organizations opposing the above made demands.

    24. We demand freedom of religion for all religious denominations within the state so long as they do not endanger its existence or oppose the moral senses of the Germanic race. The Party as such advocates the standpoint of a positive Christianity without binding itself confessionally to any one denomination. It combats the Jewish-materialistic spirit within and around us, and is convinced that a lasting recovery of our nation can only succeed from within on the framework: common utility precedes individual utility.

    25. For the execution of all of this we demand the formation of a strong central power in the Reich. Unlimited authority of the central parliament over the whole Reich and its organizations in general. The forming of state and profession chambers for the execution of the laws made by the Reich within the various states of the confederation. The leaders of the Party promise, if necessary by sacrificing their own lives, to support by the execution of the points set forth above without consideration.

    Adolf Hitler proclaimed the following explanation for this program on the 13 April 1928:


    Regarding the false interpretations of Point 17 of the program of the NSDAP on the part of our opponents, the following definition is necessary:

    “Since the NSDAP stands on the platform of private ownership it happens that the passage” gratuitous expropriation concerns only the creation of legal opportunities to expropriate if necessary, land which has been illegally acquired or is not administered from the view-point of the national welfare. This is directed primarily against the Jewish land-speculation companies.

    Russia is historically Tatar and Mongol land. It was Russians who were serving Jews willingly, and it was Russians who were committing crimes against Ukrainians people during the Holodomor. Nobody forced Russkies to support and serve the Bolsheviks; Russkies did it all by their own free will. As for the Rus, Rus were the Nords and Slavs who joined and formed the Rus nation-state with their capital Kyiv. Initially the Rus were Nords. Russkies are Tatars mostly. They just have Slavic first and second names. Only a tiny part of the historical Rus is part of today Russia.

    I suggest you take a look at Colin McEvedy’s “Atlas of History” (from Penguin Books, easy to find). The Slavs came from a part of European Russia, the remaining part of which was mainly inhabited by Ugro-Finnic and Turkic-Mongolian peoples. Therefore, we must consider two facts:
    1) There was a Russification of present-day European Russia in the Middle Ages that Russified the country, just as the German “Drang nach Osten” carried out the Germanification of regions such as Prussia at the same time. In modern times, Kalmyk musketeers conquered Siberia for the tsar in the 17th century so that this region would be colonized by Russians, but with “oblasts” of natives. The regions of the Caucasus and Central Asia were conquered militarily in the 19th century. This is similar to the US expansion to the West, when they colonized the region and pushed the natives into reservations (when they were not killed) and forcibly took CA and TX from Mexico (although this operation is legitimate under the historical circumstances: not without reason Jorge Luis Borges called Alamo as “the Thermopylae of America”).
    2) I don’t like Solzhenitsyn, but he declared that the difference between Russians and Ukrainians was artificially made during Mongol and Polish rule, and that those peoples should be peacefully unified. On the other hand, the union between the North and the South of the USA was militarily secured after the Civil War.
    In other words, if Russia doesn’t deserve to exist as it claims now, neither does the US.

    It is amazing to see Jewmericans & cons explaining to Europeans European history and going back as far as 17th century (and regurgitating Anglo-Jewmerican scribblers). Hizzz stories.

    What is twisted is claiming that Tatars are Slavs when they are not. They are no Europeans either. Russian dogs are just carrying Slavic first and sencond names and speak Slavic language, and that’s all. They are mostly Asiatics. Now masonic dogs around here would like to persuade readers that chief Russian dog Gerasimov (on the right in the pic below) is a Slav.
    Or that minister of invasion Shoigu (pictured alongside chief Russky dog) is a Slav. They just carry Slavic first and second names like population of those -stans from central Asia. As I said, most of Russky land is Tatar and Mongol land. Russkies are Asiatic Tatars, Altaics and various Siberian people.

    Borges considered the English spoken literature the best in the world. It is important for the USA to preserve its roots against Hispanics. Marx also considered positive USA growing above “lazy Mexicans”. Nowadays Americans are denying their own culture.
