Ever since the fall of the Communist system and the fracturing of the old Soviet Union in 1989-1991, the globalist foreign policy hawks in the American state department and their dutiful minions in the media and amongst both political parties have actively pursued a program of what the late zealous Neoconservative Fox News pundit Charles Krauthammer termed a “unipolar” world. By that Krauthammer meant a post-Communist (and essentially secularized) world in which the established form of American “liberal democracy” would now succeed in imposing a new world order. In the words of prominent Neocon author Allan Bloom: “And when we Americans speak seriously about politics, we mean that our principles of freedom and equality and the rights based on them are rational and everywhere applicable. World War II was really an educational experiment undertaken to force those who do not accept these principles to do so.” [Allan Bloom, quoted in Paul Gottfried, War and Democracy: Selected Essays, 1975-2012 (London: Arktos Media, 2012), p. 110] (my Italics in the text)

But, in fact, as the late Sam Francis explained in various books and essays (e.g., Leviathan and Its Enemies, 2016), this Neocon vision of a new world order is nothing less than a form of managerial kleptocracy, the control by powerful elites in our (permanent) government and big corporations who talk incessantly about democracy, but in fact use that term to disguise the increasing dominance they exercise over every facet of public and private life, whether in the United States, Western Europe, or since 1991 over most of the former Eastern Bloc.

Do we need further examples of this closer to home than the recent authoritarian actions by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau or the extra-constitutional actions by what is euphemistically called “the January 6 Committee” in the US Congress? Stand in the way of the Deep State administrative managers, and you get suppressed, cancelled, and arrested, and held in a Federal jail for months without bail or trial.

The present crisis in Ukraine has everything to do with the objectives and maneuvers of this managerial kleptocracy, and its attempts to force post-Communist—increasingly anti-Marxist—Russia to accept such a template.

Recall a bit of history: Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and Secretary of State James Baker (representing President George H. W. Bush) solemnly agreed in principle that the old USSR would disintegrate into various new “republics,” and in return NATO would not advance beyond its current borders, that is, would not take in those former Eastern Bloc countries (e.g., Poland, Romania, Slovakia, the Baltics, etc.), an action which would be seen as directly hostile and offensive to a greatly reduced Russian Federation. Indeed, after the end of the Soviet Union, its dismemberment, and the rise of an avowedly traditionalist and pro-Christian leadership in Moscow (no less a figure than the Reverend Franklin Graham noticed this), was there any reason for NATO even to exist, as President Trump once mused…other than as a means for continued and increasing managerial control (following the Bloom paradigm)?

Professor Richard Sakwa (University of Kent, UK), in his excellent and very detailed study, Frontline Ukraine: Crisis in the Borderlands (December 2014), has termed what happened after the fall of Soviet Communism the triumph of “asymetrism,” by which he means that instead of welcoming the new, post-Communist Russia, which had now publicly rejected and repudiated the seventy years of brutal years of Marxist domination, as an equal partner in a “Greater West,” our foreign policy and Neocon managers in Washington and Brussels demanded that Russia give up any pretense of real independence or true partnership with the West.

This process occurred in steps, each time with agreements or protocols or memoranda, which were solemnized between the parties, but then essentially undermined by the US or by our client regime in Kiev. During the Clinton administration, and continuing on until 2020, one by one the former Eastern Bloc countries were admitted as members of NATO, including the Baltic states. In effect, the promises of Baker and the elder Bush meant nothing. What then were the Russians to think?

Much is made of the Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances of December 5, 1994. Through that protocol Russia, the US and the United Kingdom “confirmed their recognition of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine becoming parties to the Treaty on Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons and effectively abandoning their nuclear arsenals to Russia.” In return, Russia recognized the integrity and sovereignty of a neutral, non-militarized, non-hostile Ukraine. And accordingly, despite political turmoil and internal conflict within the Ukrainian state, from 1994 until the violent, American-sponsored Maidan coup d’etat revolution of February 2014 (again, recall US Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland’s direct involvement), that agreement held. But with the flagrant violation of a truce between organized Kiev protesters (who had received from the US over \$5 billion to foment revolution) and the popularly-elected government of Viktor Yanukovych (who was seen by the Ukraine revolutionaries as pro-Russian), and the subsequent seizure of power by US-backed Ukrainian irredentists who then proceeded to severely persecute Ukraine’s very large Russian-language and ethnic minority, the Budapest protocol was effectively abrogated (cf., Sakwa, Frontline Ukraine, pp. 86-88 et seq).

It should be noted, as well, the United States never considered the Budapest Memorandum legally binding (Statement of April 12, 2013) or in the category of a concluded treaty.

Russia responded by acceding to the overwhelming vote of citizens of the Crimean peninsula, which had never been Ukrainian, only forcefully “given” to the artificial “Ukrainian Socialist Republic” in 1954 by Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev (allegedly after a night of riotous drinking). For the Crimea includes the major Russian Black Sea naval base at Sevastopol, supposedly guaranteed by agreement to Russia, but which after the Maidan coup, the new American-sponsored regime in Kiev now threatened to take.

Russian president Vladimir Putin responded via a press conference on March 4, 2014, to a question about Russia’s supposed violation (in Crimea) of the Budapest Memorandum, describing the current Ukrainian situation as a revolution: “a new state arises, but with this state and in respect to this state, we have not signed any obligatory documents.” The Ukrainian state as envisaged by the Budapest Memorandum had, effectively, ceased to exist, and in its place an American-CIA-US State Department-created state had been forcibly implanted in its place.

Further, Russia declared that it had never been under obligation to “force any part of Ukraine’s civilian population to stay in Ukraine against its will,” including the two newly-independent heavily-Russophone states of Donetsk and Lugansk in what was eastern Ukraine (those provinces, like Crimea, had never been a part of any independent Ukrainian nation, but were forcibly given to the artificial Soviet republic by Vladimir Lenin in 1922).

Once again, whether through the so-called “Rose Revolution” in Georgia, or the American debacle in the Balkans, which only succeeded in creating an Islamist republic—Kosovo—in the heart of Europe, the “Orange Revolution” in Kiev must be seen in context as part and parcel of the overall Neocon and globalist effort to advance their internationalist aims. And those goals, let it be said, have nothing to do with traditional Western and Christian beliefs and values. Rather, they were and are a manifestation of what globalist Klaus Schwab, head of the World Economic Forum, defined as “the Great Reset,” the “window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world.”

In fact, the Russian incursion into Ukraine comes as a direct and cumulative result of actions which our State Department and intelligence community, with its minions in Western Europe, have engineered for thirty years: to, as it were, “put Russia in its place—at the back of the bus.”

President Zelensky of Ukraine, most recently implied that Ukraine might well go back and reconsider its decision to de-nuclearize. This, then, along with the violent persecution of the huge Russophone minority within Ukrainian borders, precipitated Putin’s decision to take action. After decades of broken promises, broken treaties, and violated protocols, whether at Budapest or the Minsk Agreements (which could have settled the issues equitably), which Ukraine, encouraged by our globalists, never implemented, the Russian bear had its back against the wall: either stand up to those who would subjugate you, or fight back.

Recall again the words of that great anti-Communist novelist, anti-totalitarian and fervent Christian, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (Moscow News, interview with W. T. Trietiakov published 28 April/4May 2006):

“Events in Ukraine, ever since the time of the referendum in 1991, with its poorly formulated options, have been a constant source of pain and anger to me. I have written and spoken about this often. The fanatic oppression and suppression of the Russian language there (a language which polls show is consistently the preferred language of 60% of the people there) is a beastly methodology aimed primarily against the cultural prospects of Ukraine itself. The vast territories which were never part of historic Ukraine, such as Crimea, Novorosiya and the entire southeast were forcibly and arbitrarily consumed into the territory of modern Ukraine and made hostage to Ukraine’s desires to join NATO…. It is all a simple minded, indeed simpleton and cruel joke perpetuated against the entire history of XIX and XX century Russia. Given these circumstances, Russia will never, in any way, betray the many millions of Russian speaking peoples in Ukraine. Russia will never abandon the ideal of unity with them.”

No one—no one—wants war, with the resultant terrible destruction, loss of life, and mayhem it inevitably brings. But as I have written in previous essays, if you search for the profound cause for what has happened, it is not the invading Russians, it is not really the regime in Kiev, but rather it is the sponsoring apparatchiks in Foggy Bottom along the Potomac, in Brussels, and in the houses of Congress (the Lindsey Grahams and Roger Wickers who actually urge our potential use of nuclear weapons against Russia), and what Dr. Paul Craig Roberts calls the “pressitutes” in American media, from Fox News to MSNBC (which now are like an indistinguishable, foaming-at-the-mouth phalanx in their defense of the aggressive managerial world revolution).

The blood spilt will be on our hands, that is, on the hands of our elites. As cartoonist Walt Kelly once put it: “We have met the enemy and he is us!”

    Why didn’t Cathey name the nose? Jewish hatred for Caucasian-Christians in general and Caucasian-Christian Russians in particular are behind all these anti-Christian polices. Jews own the politicians and the media, and both, not surprisingly, are baying for war with Russia. As for the Fake Christian/evangelical community, it too is hateful and warmongering — mainly because it is Zionist. Anything Zionist is evil.

  3. There’s an article at https://stateofthenation.co together with a map, about American bioweapon-producing sites all over Ukraine, installed since the Maidan.

    Righteousness? Hmm…

  4. The dirtiest trick of all: so-called democracy with its career politicians. They are not “the people”.

  5. Here are a few thoughts about what’s really going on in the world politics. According to reliable sources, the decision to withdraw Russia from the big political and economic game was made in 2008, not in Davos, but in Beijing.
    It is said that politics is an extension of economics, so today’s situation with Ukraine should be considered from the qui bono point of view and nothing else, namely: which of the major players stands to gain the most from Russia’s economic isolation? Economically, the U.S. and Europe will lose, so that leaves China. The economy of isolated Russia will collapse and will soon be taken over by the Chinese.
    The Russian business has long secretly exported its capital to China, including Putin’s money. Has no one noticed how fluent Zakharova, the Foreign Ministry’s chief spokeswoman, speaks Chinese? And that Putin didn’t return to Russia after his trip to the Olympics? That they put another silicon dummy in his place and made him open his mouth in sync with the recording? Has no one ever wondered why the new puppet has such a long table in the Kremlin? The puppet is afraid of being exposed. Speaking of the doll. Its testing began back in December, and already then, the president of Finland noticed a sharp change in “Putin’s” behavior.
    So, fleeing from the impending civil war Putin and his accomplices got political asylum and a guarantee of safety of the stolen goods in China, in exchange for which China will eventually get access to Russia’s gold reserves, while the EU and US will work in three shifts to pull Ukraine out of the pit where Putin and China pushed it.

  13. I’m scratching my head looking for an American war that hasn’t been righteous and I cannot come up with one – in the post-WWII era, that is. Haven’t all of them been about fighting communism, spreading the fake gospel of democracy and human rights, WMD threats, mushroom clouds, protecting Libyans from certain genocide by evil Gaddafi, siphoning Syrian oil to Israel and getting rid of another genocidal maniac elected by his people, Assad? And killing millions along the way? Aside of course from the more generic mission under the umbrella of the War on Terror, where anything is fair game. Above all, we must not forget fighting wars for America’s puppeteer and owner, Israel.

    “And those goals … are a manifestation of what globalist Klaus Schwab, head of the World Economic Forum, defined as “the Great Reset,” the “window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world.””

    Putin, and most of the Russian Intelligentsia, were apparently willing to play along with much of the “Great Reset” including mRNA GMO injections and digital currency, but there was one aspect of the reset where Russia refused to submit: Zero Carbon.

    One of the main tools being used to enforce Zero Carbon is ESG (Environmental Social and Governance). ESG has been implemented across all the major international corporations, especially in energy extraction and mining. The “Environmental” aspect requires corporations to implement COP26 and Agenda 2030 environmental restrictions and reporting. The “Social” and “Governance” aspects include “Woke”, and Putin has been resisting “Wokism” as well. This has placed a couple of targets on Putin’s back.

    Russia refused to agree to its cut coal, oil and gas production at COP26, and was being very coy about 2030 and 2060 zero carbon goals. They are even planning on increasing coal production, and will certainly be running the Donbas coal mines at full bore now.

    https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2021/11/16/what-did-russia-achieve-at-cop26-a75562

    Lukoil, Rosneft, Gazprom and much of Russia mining industry are not playing the ESG game, and this is a major problem for the Soros/Rothschild/Schwab WEF gangsters. They have managed to bring the North American and Middle Eastern energy industries to heel, but not Russia.

    As WEF strangles the planet with high cost energy and inflation going into 2030 and beyond, Russia’s energy industry would reap a massive windfall, and this likely would destroy the Zero Carbon/Zero Growth cabal. This is one of the main reasons why so much pressure has been exerted on Russia, like the blocking of Nordstream II, all the economic sanctions, and all the sabre rattling in Ukraine.

    Wokeism and the Zero Carbon cult have become as American as apple pie. Virtue signallng of “righteousness” is what American Karen does best.

    I am hoping that Putin and Russia hold out and crush not only ESG and Wokeism, but also the dollar reserve currency based fiat system. This is why I picked up some Lukoil, Rosneft and Gazprom shares on Thursday after they dropped nearly 50% on the invasion news.

  15. “And when “We Americans” speak about our principles of freedom and equality, you know we’re lying. Prison Nation, Land of Homeless and Billionaires? Come on!”

  16. The “righteousness” against Russian oil exports to the Jewnighted States of Israhell is truly missed:

    The JewS imports daily between 500 – 1500 thousand barrels of Russian Oil (because it needs it).
    Now there are “sanctions, sanctions, sanctions like never ever seen before”, sanctions against Russian gas exports to Germany with quadrupling heating costs for German workers, but no sanctions against oil for the JewS “because American energy prices could increase”.

    https://www.kommersant.ru/doc/5236737?from=top_main_3

    Could Russia now get Nord Stream 2 quickly started if it threatens the American zone with the cut of oil supplies in the middle of an American (s)election year?!

  17. No one—no one—wants war, with the resultant terrible destruction, loss of life

    “No-one” is an absolute. The superior writer exercises extreme caution when using absolutes. If I, or you, or anybody can find one person who wants war, we prove the writer wrong. I once met a man who said, “Koreans, Japs, Chinese: we should nuke the whole fucking lot of them.”

    Then there are the Rothschilds:
    https://politicalvelcraft.org/2015/03/11/rothschilds-windbags-of-war/

    and Jacob Schiff, and a lot of “israelis”. What was it Lucky Larry Silverstein said about “loss of life”?

    The Washington Post reported that US government officials are ready to help President Zelensky leave Kyiv to avoid capture or assassination by advancing Russian troops.

    That suggests to me that Washington is worried Zelensky may come to his senses and do something reasonable – like negotiate a settlement. Getting him out of the way would allow NATO to prop up a ‘Deputy’ who could be relied upon to say No/No/No to all efforts to end this craziness.

    “What then were the Russians to think?”

    Combined with the 2014 coup in Ukraine, and the build-up of weapons in Ukraine, and the long history of the London / Wall Street financiers military attacks on countries to plunder their resources, the Russians would logically think that these pirate financiers were preparing to attack Russia.

    So the Russians took out that weapons build-up to prevent the coming attack.

    “Administrative kleptocracy” is a diffuse term that obscures the identity of these pirate financiers. They are ruthless, backstabbing criminals who control several key governments (UK, US, etc.) with bribery, blackmail, and murder. They are the source of the Western treachery in these events, so well described in this article. For new Unz Review readers, their basic history is here. Note John Hobson’s explanation of how the top financiers drive imperial policies.

    In 2007 Chinese leaders learned the history of the financial piracy of the Zionist banking cabal in the City of London and Wall Street, through the book Currency Wars. In 2008 they were changing their economic policies to dodge those financial clutches (but keeping the factories and technology that London had moved to China). Russian leaders also read the book and began making similar moves. This culminated in the recent alliance between Russia and China in resisting capture by the Zionist financial pirates. Your theory sounds like Zionist PR to me.

    The longer term prospects are not good. Russian billionaires will chafe at the newer more comprehensive sanctions and being denied international playgrounds, and Russia’s plebs resent the continuing economic decline … after some months Putin may get removed, somewhat parallel to how Trump was humiliated, to get across the message, that the international globalists will always win … and after more global economic chaos, high prices etc the George Soros / Klaus Schwab agendas may prevail

    China is not going to save Putin’s bacon. They are already backing off, part-implementing sanctions, and they don’t like the ‘Donbass declared independence’ theme because of Taiwan. Xi is facing an internal quasi-coup regarding his re-coronation this autumn, and Chinese economic problems are mounting.

    Poles and others are so chuffed to have a nice big foray against their old enemy Russia … but if Putin’s Russia falls as they hope, they may quite come to regret as the Soros agenda of LGBT, anti-trad culture, and massive waves of African & Muslim migrants changes their land forever.

    Another part of it is this is just how the US empire operates: it goes in, regime changes, then installs a puppet regime favorable to the US that cuts tremendous deals to US corporations and interests:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confessions_of_an_Economic_Hit_Man

    It’s nothing to do with China. The USA is the country trying to bring all other countries to heel, cutting favorable deals for US corporations, so the flow of nearly-free resources into the US doesn’t dry up.

    It’s been drying up recently with Russia and China not playing ball. You can see how the USA is handling that: a massive transfer of wealth and controlled economic demolition under cover of a pandemic, and continued unrelenting money printing to keep asset prices afloat.

    If the US can’t get Russia and China out of the way soon, so it can return to pillaging resources around the globe, the US empire is toast.

    A very good article. These people are the source of the trouble:

    … as the late Sam Francis explained in various books and essays (e.g., Leviathan and Its Enemies, 2016), this Neocon vision of a new world order is nothing less than a form of managerial kleptocracy, the control by powerful elites in our (permanent) government and big corporations who talk incessantly about democracy, but in fact use that term to disguise the increasing dominance they exercise over every facet of public and private life, whether in the United States, Western Europe, or since 1991 over most of the former Eastern Bloc.

    And they created the present war.

    After decades of broken promises, broken treaties, and violated protocols, whether at Budapest or the Minsk Agreements (which could have settled the issues equitably), which Ukraine, encouraged by our globalists, never implemented, the Russian bear had its back against the wall: either stand up to those who would subjugate you, or fight back.

    Very interesting. I see a lot of similarities between Ukraine and Czechoslovakia and how Russia is dealing with Ukraine now and how Germany dealt with Czechoslovakia in 1938. I say that with some sympathy, not as criticism, although I wish Putin could have dealt with the problem without invading. The allies did something very similar when they created Czechoslovakia. They took a chunk of territory from the Austro-Hungarian Empire and created an enemy state on Germany’s border while its very large German and Slovak minorities were second class citizens in the new state.

    It would have been interesting to listen in on his frantic calls around Europe looking for someone else — anyone else — to stand beside him as the Russians begin repaying his treachery. From the belle of the Empire’s ball to abandoned slut in just 24 hours — ouch.

    If he were smart, now that his western “friends” have shown their true colors, he might have considered ordering his army back to their barracks, apologizing to Vlad, and cooperating with Russia’s denazification and demilitarization. But his bleating appeals to the west about who would provide “security guarantees” for a demilitarized Ukraine reveal him to be nothing more than a bad joke…

    1) Gave asylum to Ed Snowden.
    2) Gave a speech expressing the idea that the white South African farmers being massacred by the blacks empowered in 1994, could have safe haven in Russia. I don’t know if he ever followed up on this speech with any action toward that goal, however.
    3) Gave a speech last year where he said they will never have fag marriage in Russia.
    4) When Obama expelled several Russian diplomats from the US, Putin gave a Christmas Party for the American diplomats in Russia.
    5) Fought against the Jews who raped the Russian Economy in the 1990s. Unfortunately, however, I have read that he is still not totally “UnJewed).
    6) Captured Crimea after the CIA coup of Yanukovich in 2014.
    7) I believe there are no fag pride parades in Moscow. Putin didn’t originate that policy but he maintains it.
    8) Putin is on good terms with Viktor Orban of Hungary who is one of the best white leaders in the world.

    All in all, I would certainly rather be governed by Putin that by Biden, Trudeau, Boris Johnson, etc.

    A strong Russia-China alliance cannot be beaten militarily or economically. This is beyond question. The Jews fully understand this, even if their Westoid slaves probably do not. The Jews have shown zero inclination to actually engage in direct physical war with Russia-China beyond their usual threats and mind games.

    Where the Jews still have a massive advantage is in their elite propaganda and brainwashing techniques. Listen to Bidenstein’s speeches and recent comments from people like Soros and you will understand that the Jews still plan to “win” through regime change via color revolutions, local terrorists etc. That is their bread and butter.

    Add in the equally unarguable hand of the communist Jew behind Mandela and Mao, subversion of the West, and they become the uncontested greatest evil that mankind has ever faced. In America the espionage cabal that gave the atomic secrets to the USSR in the hope America would be nuked were, with one solitary exception, 100% Jewish. Israel proper, furthermore, was responsible for the Lavon Affair; involved in the assassinations of JFK and RFK; tried to sink the USS Liberty with all hands on board; and, not least, did 9/11.

    How can I put this succinctly, perhaps like this. Hindsight is easy, except if you’ve been spending all your time retconning.

    It’s worth remembering that during The Cold War, while the American people rightly intuited that the wide open free exchange of ideas and information was a fearsome strength against the Soviet Union, the US government dissented. This was primarily messaged in popular culture as “We’re losing the spy war.”

    That’s about it in terms of what they had any hope of selling to the American people and The West of the Twilight Struggle’s competing model.

    Rising China is a horse of a different color. I work belabor the ways it’s appealing but simply note that the higher you are on the ruling and governing class food chain, individual and institutional alike, the more it’s a dream come true.

    Competition is uncertain and tiring, whether in commerce or when it comes to the consent of the governed. That’s why capitalism’s winners work to end fair play. The feature became a bug for them. They are want to be monopolists.

    Say what you will about Leninism/Stalinism (and I am using this as a synecdoche so please no bellyaching over my chosen terminology), whomever is riding high wants more of it. No fundamental contradictions or desiring to switch horses midstream.

    The dirtiest trick of all: so-called democracy with its career politicians. They are not “the people”.

    To which I respond with what 1st year law students learn is the right answer to any question, it depends. Really, whether career or not, American politicians in the 20th and 21st centuries (with one recent notable exception who I for once won’t name) have been a reflection of the decline in the Middle and Working Classes.

    They always paid the bills and fought the wars. America with prosperous and growing Middle and Working Classes was THE model for the rest of the world. Alas, all you have to do is look at California these days — from a middle class paradise, the envy of the world, to its current sorry state in which it tops the charts in out-migration to free states — to see how we’ve lost our way.

If deployed in Ukraine, such systems will be able to hit targets in Russia’s entire European part. The flying time of Tomahawk cruise missiles to Moscow will be less than 35 minutes; ballistic missiles from Kharkov will take seven to eight minutes; and hypersonic assault weapons, four to five minutes. It is like a knife to the throat.

    While I have to confess I don’t know what differences there are between Ukrainians and Russians, it’s safe to say that they are both white and christian and share a related culture and any differences are so negligible that warfare between the two is certainly not justified and frankly immoral.

    Now here’s where I see somewhat of a paradox in that these poor untrained civilian Ukrainians are being manipulated and encouraged to fight (kamikaze style) for no good reason against other white Christian Europeans. The sick U.S media is proudly calling Ukrainian civilians gallant in a nonsensical fight only to end up dead. Gallant due to being deliberately hustled.

    If Ukrainians are such fervent nationalist and are proud of their identity to the level that they see a fellow white European , a Russian as a threat it absolutely makes no sense for them to want any relationship with NATO, U.S Neocons, EU as these entities represent the exact opposite of protecting white European heritage in their own lands.

    The transformation of many western European countries into multi-cultural sludge pots combined with the attack on christian values , wokism, deliberate assaults on peoples history, statues being knocked over and on and on is total proof of where NATO /U.S countries are at today.

    The irony is Ukrainians are encouraged to get slaughtered fighting other white christians for no valid good reason while the real threats to any European nations culture and identity are third world migration and wokism and yet these threats are not even permitted to be recognized as dictated by the same people who the Ukrainians long to join hands with in Western Europe/U.S

The article points out the hypocrisy of the political elites who hide behind a virtuous rhetoric and forced propaganda to conduct a plan that has never been submitted to the plebiscite of the people of the Western countries. There are different ways to portray the hijacking of the administrations by the few: the cabal, the old boys clubs (now old girls too), the elites, the Ivy Leage schools, the Intelligence community, a range of well intentioned NGO’s overextending their role, and of course the big lobbies. In summary there is an anti-democratic community at work behind the scene and currently out of control in our Western world.

    The obvious measure against hidden forces is to force them out in the sunlight and that means to provide alternatives to the MSM medias in my view and to repel any law that restricts the freedom of speech in any arbitrary way. I thing that the MSM propaganda tricks need to be flagged agressively before the hidden hand looses its grip on power.

  82. By that Krauthammer meant a post-Communist (and essentially secularized) world in which the established form of American “liberal democracy” would now succeed in imposing a new world order. In the words of prominent Neocon author Allan Bloom: “And when we Americans speak seriously about politics, we mean that our principles of freedom and equality and the rights based on them are rational and everywhere applicable.

    Secularized essentially means anti-Christian in the religious and cultural sense. Secularizm is an aggressive form of religion which strives to subjugate nations and supplant tradition. I am sure you have seen someone on tv crying ” This is a secular country. We are secular. ” In a way he/she is talking about an imposed secularizm.

    This is a powerful way to de-legitimize the corrupt US regime. Why doesn’t he do this? Why doesn’t any true adversary of the US do this? Especially Iran.
    My suspicion is that Putin is playing inside baseball, mainly because he went whole-hog on the carno virus fraud. He wouldn’t have done that if he was an honest Russian nationalist.

    I wish, but sadly pretty much all of my fantasies have come true, including the date of the Russian Lecter’s attack on Ukraine. On December 27 ultranationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky told parliament that a military campaign would begin at 4am on February 22. I knew immediately he was not bluffing when he was hospitalized early February at the Central Clinical Hospital with a diagnosis of COVID. I doubt he will ever walk out alive from that facility.

    The comic Zelensky was apparently not smart enough to figure out he was the Empire of Chaos’ punch line… the U.S., E.U. and NATO will fight the Russians to the last Ukrainian.

    Zelensky also acts surprised that NATO did not come to his rescue. This man is obviously a fool. Zelensky is supposedly still in Kiev holding out to the last man in total defiance. Insanity at it’s finest. How many people and buildings in that city will suffer for his stupidity? He should stop the war and save his city from becoming another bombed out shit hole (like Damascus).

    On the news last night they ran this viral story of 13 brave Ukranians on some island who told Russia to go f-ck off then got cremated by Russian firepower. They died for no reason but stupidity, much like Zelensky is trying to do. If Zelensky gets captured, that would be a fate worse than death, so if he is still in Ukraine he is damn fool. The puppet leader lining his pockets normally flees to the host nation and retires to a sunny beach.

    When I used to surf California, I found out the Shah of Iran and his family had retired to a private estate on the coast north of Santa Barbara. I also learned that Mikhail Gorbachev lives at the Presidio (Naval base) in San Francisco. It will be interesting to see what the fate of Zelensky will be. Once Putin decided to act on Ukraine, and rolled the Russian army, there was no point in putting up some big resistance, an act of suicide. Zelensky is also Jew, so I am surprised at his bravery, a comic who fights to his death, makes no sense at all.

    I can just imagine Zelensky on a call from Biden this morning, keep fighting my friend, we are sending more supplies, they ought to get there next week. LOL

    “Infinite” boosters will be needed to maintain Sputnik V’s “efficacy”
    The Russian government continues to maintain Sputnik V is highly effective at preventing severe cases of coronavirus.

    In April 2021, Gintsburg said he believed Sputnik V would provide indefinite immunity. A month later, Gamaleya’s director adjusted his forecast, explaining Sputnik V would remain effective for two years.

    In June, Gintsburg announced Russians would need a Sputnik booster shot six months after vaccination. On December 19 he recommended getting revaccinated an “infinite” number of times every six months.

    Go ahead, get all your boosters and stay up to date. Vlad would be proud of you…

    The ties between the Russian government and AstraZeneca aren’t just financial.

    In a press release dated December 11, 2020, the British-Swedish pharmaceutical giant revealed it would “soon begin exploring with Gamaleya Research Institute in Russia to understand whether two adenovirus-based vaccines can be successfully combined.”

    Gamaleya—operated by the Russian health ministry—is credited with creating Russia’s flagship vaccine.

    As part of the “memorandum of cooperation” between RDIF and AstraZeneca, the partners agreed to conduct joint trials using a combination of their two drugs in hopes of developing a COVID vaccine cocktail. The original plan was to register the combo shot in Russia, Gamaleya’s director, Alexander Gintsburg, said at the time.

    Zelensky is likely already out of the country. Probably Poland, as he suggested to meet in Poland for negotiations. In any case, he’s just a figurehead. The real orders come from elsewhere. So he’s told to refuse negotiations and continue the conflict.

    From the cynical point of view of the West, it’s better to prolong this as long as possible and maximize civilian casualties. Then cry that they just want “peace” and “democracy”.

    The ZUS and NATO broke every agreement with Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union, that NATO would not expand into the former Soviet Block countries and it is for this reason that the current war in the Ukraine is being fought, by the way the ZUS is no stranger to breaking agreements, just as the American Indians, who have had almost every agreement broken.

    The neo-Nazism in Ukraine has been nurtured by American zionists.

    While the Jewish Lobby (specifically its thugs at the ADL) has been hunting honest historians for not adhering to holobiz “truths” a la Elie Wiesel – the honest historians were beaten, made unemployed, and put into prison – Canadian Badnerites (followers of Stepan Bandera) were building memorials to SS and Nazi collaborators. There was never a peep from either Canadian or American Jewish Communities.

    Since the regime-change in Kiev in 2014, the Jewish State has been arming Ukrainian neonazis with Israel-made rifles. The zionist-controlled printing press and MSM have been firmly on a side of neonazis.

    The US Congress refused to condemn “Glorification of Nazism, Neo-Nazism and other Practices that Contribute to Fueling Contemporary Forms of Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance Resolutionuniformly in support of Nazism.” The Jewish Lobby did not produce a peep. The Lobby only becomes excited when destroying and humiliating old decent ladies like the great journalist Helen Thomas.

    Stepan Bandera, the spiritual leader of Ukrainian and Canadian Banderites who currently serve the interests of US ziocons:

    As an uncompromising leader of the militant, terrorist branch of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN), Bandera became a Nazi collaborator who lived with his deputies under German protection after World War II began. In preparation for the attack on the USSR, the Nazis recruited Bandera’s followers to act as Ukrainian-speaking policemen and to serve in two Ukrainian volunteer army battalions. By working with the Nazis, Bandera hoped to free Ukraine from Soviet rule and establish his own government there. An independent Ukraine, Bandera promised, would remain friendly to Germany.

    Historian Karel Berkhoff, among others, has shown that Bandera, his deputies, and the Nazis shared a key obsession, namely the notion that the Jews in Ukraine were behind Communism and Stalinist imperialism and must be destroyed. “The Jews of the Soviet Union,” read a Banderist statement, “are the most loyal supporters of the Bolshevik Regime and the vanguard of Muscovite imperialism in the Ukraine.” When the Germans invaded the USSR in June 1941 and captured the East Galician capital of Lvov, Bandera’s lieutenants issued a declaration of independence in his name. They further promised to work closely with Hitler, then helped to launch a pogrom that killed four thousand Lvov Jews in a few days, using weapons ranging from guns to metal poles. “We will lay your heads at Hitler’s feet,” a Banderist pamphlet proclaimed to Ukrainian Jews.”

    And today, Ukrainian and Canadian Banderites are the best friends of American zionists in a war against Russia.

    @Trinity

    The fact that Jews were planning to recolonizing all of Ukraine, including Crimea, is the real reason for this kerfuffle with Russia, who isn’t ready to recognize New Khazaria:

    If the question of Jewish right to colonize Crimea is raised it must be remembered that the Jews have a right to claim to be autochthons of all the northern coast of the Black Sea. As early as the ancient Bosphorean empire, before the Christian era, colonies of Hellenized Jews have flourished on the Black Sea coast. Inscriptions which have been found there dating back to the first cenutry prove the existence of organized Jewish communities in this region. These Hellenized Jews were followed by the Byzantine Jews in the fifth century of the Christian era. The Khazar empire, the leading classes of which adopted Judaism, existed between the eighth and eleventh centuries. Then, settlements of Jews and Karaites existed in this region between the thirteenth and eighteenth centuries. Finally, the Jewish colonies have existed there since the nineteenth century. The historic rights of the Jews to colonize Crimea and the entire Black Sea coast from Odessa to the Caucasus cannot be doubted and it is certainly desirable in a region where for two thousand years our ancestors have, under the Greeks and the Scythians, engaged in agriculture, that the Jews should again cultivate the land.

    The Khazarian mafia owns Ukraine the same way that the Khazarian mafia owns the US. The Khazars know that they have no claim to Israel, and they know that they came from Khazaria. This is why the usage of the word “autochthons” is so interesting:

    [MORE]

    the concept of autochthones means the indigenous inhabitants of a country, including mythological figures, as opposed to settlers, and those of their descendants who kept themselves free from an admixture of colonizing entities

    American settlers were righteous as they conquered the west seeking a new Zion. Zionists stole Palestine for their New Zion. The Khazars are autochthons of Crimea, Donbas and all of southern Ukraine. How “righteous” is that?

    Leaked report: Israel acknowledges Jews in fact Khazars; Secret plan for reverse migration to Ukraine

    It is well known that, sometime in the eighth to ninth centuries, the Khazars, a warlike Turkic people, converted to Judaism and ruled over a vast domain in what became southern Russia and Ukraine. What happened to them after the Russians destroyed that empire around the eleventh century has been a mystery. Many have speculated that the Khazars became the ancestors of Ashkenazi Jews.

    So the Sephardim will get Israel and the Ashkenazi get Khazaria. The Jews running Ukraine love the idea, Ukrainians of Russian descent simply are slavs (slaves) like they always have been. The only problem here is the Russian Empire.

    The Ukrainian invitation for the Jews to return was a godsend.

    Khazaria 2.0?

    All Jews who wish to return would be welcomed back without condition as citizens, the more so if they take part in the promised infusion of massive Israeli military assistance, including troops, equipment, and construction of new bases. If the initial transfer works, other West Bank settlers would be encouraged to relocate to Ukraine, as well. After Ukraine, bolstered by this support, reestablishes control over all its territory, the current Autonomous Republic of Crimea would once again become an autonomous Jewish domain. The small-scale successor to the medieval empire of Khazaria (as the peninsula, too, was once known) would be called, in Yiddish, Chazerai.

    Crimea belongs to Khazaria. Not Ukraine, Not Russia. Get that through your cattle tagged brain, Goyim.

    no one will tell Jews where they may or may not live on the historic territory of their existence as a sovereign people. He is willing to make painful sacrifices for peace, even if that means giving up part of our biblical homeland in Judea and Samaria. But then you have to expect us to exercise our historical rights somewhere else. We decided this will be on the shores of the Black Sea, where we were an autochthonous people for more than 2000 years. Even the great non-Zionist historian Simon Dubnow said we had the right to colonize Crimea. It’s in all the history books. You can look it up.”

    The US Congress supports uniformly the Nazified state of Ukraine.

    U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-OH), Chair of the Senate Ukraine Caucus, and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Europe and Regional Security Cooperation, led a bipartisan group of senators, including Senate Foreign Relations Chairman and Ranking Member, Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Jim Risch (R-ID), as well as Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) and U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), on a new, bipartisan resolution in support of Ukraine amid increased Russian aggression.

    Here is the main dealer in the Canadian parliament:

    Standing beside Trudeau denouncing the populist revolt as “far right” stood Finance Minister and World Economic Forum Trustee Chrystia Freeland, whose grandfather Michael Chomiak “was the chief editor of a Nazi newspaper” during the occupation, celebrating the formation of the Ukrainian division of the Nazi death squads, the Waffen SS.

    Together this Canadian junta [Trudeau-Freeland] announced emergency measures recalling the arbitrary diktats of 1930s Germany, while unironically accusing the freedom-lovers of crimes against democracy.

    It is time to close all Holobiz museums for good since Jewish Community at large has sided with Neo-Nazis (Banderites):

    In 2014 as the coup [in Ukraine] was in full swing, the United States [represented by Nuland-Kagan] took to facilitating the most repugnant of individuals to install their new puppet regime. Providing armaments, funding, and training to openly admitted Neo-Nazi paramilitary forces.’ —Don Via, Jr.
    ……
    ‘Predictably, Western corporate media has already gone totally berserk branding it as the much-awaited Russian “invasion”. A reminder: when Israel routinely bombs Syria and when the House of One Saudi routinely bombs Yemeni civilians, there is never any peep in NATOstan media…. The United States government barks non-stop about “territorial sovereignty” [while] illegally occupying a section of Syrian territory and… stealing their oil.’ —Pepe Escobar

    The Jewish Community is always ready to produce deafening noises against anyone accused of ‘antisemitism.’ Here we are, witnessing how Russia attempts to fend off the attacks of the openly pro-Nazi state that uses as its armed muscle the openly Neo-Nazi armed formations – while the Jewish Lobby and the main Jewish communities in Europe and the US are dead silent. – Shame on you, the World Jewish Community, for desecrating the memory of victims of WWII.

    The Chabad Mafia is Recapturing Khazaria

    anyone Putin doesn’t like is labeled “Nazis”, with the most recent example being the Ukrainians who don’t want to be invaded. “Nazi” Ukraine is currently being run by a jewish comedian named Zelensky, who is essentially their version of Jerry Seinfeld. And of course the jew-controlled government of Ukraine just responds by calling Putin a Nazi.

    Just so it’s clear as day, both sides in this conflict are controlled by jews, and both sides are labeling each other Nazis.

    Zelensky refused to activate any of the Ukrainian defenses because he claimed the invasion would not actually take place. Now Russia has been able to sweep in uncontested and the weak leaders of the West just respond with some sanctions and telling us we are going to have to deal with ludicrously high gas prices.

    It’s almost as if this whole situation has been set up from the get go, with all the Zionist Occupational Governments playing their parts to ensure that Russia easily gains control of Ukraine. What could be behind all of this?

My kids (that I mentioned in my post) are disgusted with church and refuse to go (though they “refuse” in a kind enough way. They’re not mean to me). They’ve just had enough.

    I am definitely “red-pilled on the JQ”, but here in the deep South you simply don’t talk about this. I keep my own counsel in just about everything. My only “community” is in the comm boxes of the internet.

    I do believe that we are at an “end of the world.” The ordered relationships between things, people, and institutions (as we know here in the West); this is a “world” of sorts. This world is coming to an end. Whether or when Christ physically returns…I’m no longer willing to say that he’s coming “soon.”

    But I do think that we’re entering a new “yuga” of some sort, and the things that made sense to me in college (way back in the mid ’80s) are no longer even considered by the citizens of Globohomo. I’m nothing but an anachronism, and I’m not even 60 years old.

    Poles can be very flexible in choosing ‘friendship”: https://justice4poland.com/2016/09/30/unthinkable-atrocities-of-banderites-which-the-polish-will-never-forget-18/

    A Polish website had collected 362 different examples of torture and brutality used by the “heroes of Ukraine” in the early 40’s of the last century against the Poles. Of course, all of these were used against the Russians, and in general against all who did not share the ideas of Bandera and refused to become an accomplice to the Nazi occupiers. But the Poles did a great job restoring the historical facts about the atrocities of the bad people from the UPA.

    “There are no words to describe in just a few sentences the crimes committed by Ukrainian Nazis against the Poles in 1939-1947. The hatred that fuelled the killers, who would use such horrible methods to kill their victims, does not fit human understanding.

    Below is the result of years of research by Alexander Korman, who described 362 methods of physical and psychological torture inflicted by terrorists on the Poles by the OUN [Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists] and the UPA [Ukrainian Insurgent Army] and other Ukrainian chauvinists during the Second world war and in the South-Eastern territories of the Second Polish Commonwealth…
    There were 39 methods of torture for small children alone.

    One teensy quibble: The Sephardim are only partially descended from the ancient Hebrews. During the Hellenistic period in Egypt, the true center of Judaism at that time was Alexandria, the Hellenized capital of that land. Important thing to know is that they were highly active in their own Missionary Position, and eagerly proselytized along the Mahgreb in North Africa.

    Primarily, they won over a number of tribes of Berbers. So it would take significant DNA testing amongst Sephardics to determine the proportion of Berber vs. ancient Hebrew ancestry.

  153. …Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances of December 5, 1994…
    the violent, American-sponsored Maidan coup d’etat revolution of February 2014 (again, recall US Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland’s direct involvement)…

    Why waste much space on describing the 1994 Budapest Memorandum given that Russia subsequently affirmed the sovereignty of Ukraine and other states in the 1997 Paris Treaty between NATO and Russia?

    Peculiarly, the only reference to Victoria Nuland in this article is the quote cited above, in parentheses. I recall that she gave out cookies at the Maidan Square to the #euromaidan protesters, some of which were getting paid to stand out in the cold, and was tapped on the phone using foul language while scheming to support Yatsenyuk from an opposition party, but exactly what was the actual extent of her “direct involvement“?

    It seems the author is attempting to invoke the common propaganda narrative “Nuland staged a coup“, which is as simplistic as another popular one I have read “Baker promised not one inch east“, which is often propagated in conjunction with the ludicrous “Russia surrounded by NATO” exaggeration. I have the impression that this entire article is just another not so subtle distortion – more Russian political propaganda framing a fake narrative to accompany its war – while some of the commentators then pile on with the big whoppers.

    Nuland is surely getting far more credit than she deserves. The #euromaidan movement in Kiev began a quarter of a year before the revolution in February 2014. The elected leader at the time, Yanukovych, was extremely corrupt. He had already been ousted ten years before that. Somehow he managed to get “elected” again, probably not fairly. His palatial residence included a private zoo, a golf course, a vintage car collection, and a full-size Spanish galleon replica. The system he headed was regarded by disenchanted protestors as a quasi-dictatorship.

    The Maidan revolution in Kiev was preceded by an agreement on the settlement of political crisis in Ukraine, signed on February 21, 2014 by Yanukovych and four opposition representatives in the presence of German, French, and Russian mediators, among others. The terms stipulated new elections that year and a return to the 2004 Constitution, with a parliamentary presidential form of government.

    Politicians in Yanukovych’s party could understand where public sentiment was headed. Some of them fled and other switched sides to the opposition. The Rada (parliament) thereby attained a majority to pass a series of laws that restored the 2004 Constitution, ousted Yanukovych, and set an election date for May. Yanukovych then headed toward Ukraine’s second largest city, Kharkiv, near Russia, after which he fled to Russia. Was he perhaps afraid of prosecution for his corruption?

    A formal agreement and parliamentary votes with a quorum to revert back to the prior constitution, as previously agreed to, does not appear to me to be a “coup d’etat” as that term is widely understood. Even more amazing would be that this entire transformation was somehow staged or forced by one American Jewess, working in the State Department. Are we supposed to expect that back then the US should have supported the unpopular quasi-dictator with the private zoo instead?

  154. @Notsofast

    My belief is that there is a larger purpose behind this war in Ukraine than simply protecting the separatists. This is not a spur of the moment event it was planned to take place when it did as the covid BS winds down.
    I believe it has to do with a steady march towards a global government with no more US republic. This is of course pure treason on behalf of the scum that control my country. And sheer stupidity and cowardice on behalf of my fellow Americans.
    In the end I don’t think they get away with it. We had an enlightenment where all the questions on whether people should be free or slaves were answered with the conclusion that freedom is the way to g0.

    But Ukraine is not independent. The democratically elected president was overthrown by a coup that was mainly sponsored by the US in 2014. Since then, Ukraine has been a cesspit of corruption for the likes of Hunter Biden. It has also been employed as a dagger held to the throat of Russia by the US, EU & NATO.

Perhaps, in exchange for bombing Syria where Putin IGNORES, where Putin may receives valuable ‘information’ on his enemy from the Mafia who has deep knowledge of the American policy and vice versa.

    [On 25 February the Israeli ambassador to Moscow, Alexander Ben Zvi, was summoned by Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov, who reportedly asked Ben Zvi why Tel Aviv was expressing support for the “Nazis” in Ukraine.
    Ben Zvi responded that Tel Aviv’s comments were “measured and far milder” than those of other nations. Russia’s foreign ministry said that Bogdanov “expressed hope” that Israel would “show understanding” towards the Kremlin’s special military operation in Ukraine, which according to President Vladimir Putin seeks to defend Ukrainian separatists in the country’s east and to “demilitarize and de-Nazify” Ukraine.

    Soon after the start of Moscow’s special military operation, Israel issued a statement supporting Ukraine’s “territorial integrity” without mentioning Russia. This, however, prompted significant criticism from the west.
    https://thecradle.co/Article/news/7308

    After an urgent meeting with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Defense Minister Benny Gantz, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid appeared before reporters to call Russia’s military operation “a grave violation of the international order.”In response the Russian Ambassador to Israel, Anatoly Viktorov, told The Times of Israel on 25 February that Moscow “hopes that Israel will continue [taking] a wise diplomatic approach.”
    Experts agree that Israel’s initial hesitation to openly state its support for Kiev was due to a fear of souring relations with Moscow. Israel believes that tension with Russia would jeopardize its illegal military operations in Syria. (he means bombing Syria on a daily basis with NO condemnation from Putin where he receives valuable information on his enemies in exchange)The frequent Israeli airstrikes on Syria have, to a large extent, been made possible due to coordination between Tel Aviv and Moscow, which has significant control of the Syrian airspace.So, Israel bombs Syria with full cooperation of Putin and Russia.
    How does Israel manage to SATISFY both empires at the same time? This is possible because the Mafia has deep influence of both systems receiving supports from both sides in exchange for valuable information.

    On the other hand, Lebanon, that has been devasted by US policy and Israel’s bombing, was told
    to condemn Russia’s attack and the Lebenese PM, a 5th column, obeyed.

    There were eight (8) years of waiting for the implementation of Minsk I and Minsk II.
    The Kievan junta of zionists + neonazis refused to implement both Minsk I and Minsk II following the US junta diktat. The US government has sided with the self-proclaimed Neo-Nazis.

    The Kagans’ clan [see Nuland-Kagan] was the initiator of collaboration with Ukrainian Neo-Nazis. The Jewish Community of the US [see Pyatt, Gerschman, Blinken, Sherman, Sullivan, Price, et al] has approved the collaboration.

    Nuland got caught managing the coup when on 4 February 2014 a phone call from her to the U.S. Ambassador in Kiev got posted to YouTube in which she instructed him to get “Yats” or “Yatsenyuk” appointed to run the post-coup government, and “Yats” was a rabidly anti-Russian and pro-nazi politician…

    On 17 February 2022, a retired head of Britain’s MI6, Sir John Sawers, was interviewed by NATO’s PR firm the Atlantic Council, and he seconded Nuland’s phone-call assertion that the U.N should “glue this thing”, when he used the phrase in a different context, saying that “If you try to install a new government which has no legitimacy, you’ve got to glue it in place.

    Kyle Hunt at Renegade maintains that Putin is in on it with the west, and there is good evidence to support that theory like how Russia plays along with the Covid narrative and his support from Chabad? Jews. I don’t know who is playing who and where loyalty lies, but I respectively doubt this theory. If Hitler was authentic then so maybe is Putin, and the litmus test is a strong sense of nationalism over being a cuck Jew peon. Putin acted in the face of ruinacious sanctions.

    I think Hitler and Putin are two of a kind, two nationalists willing to use force against ZOG, and thus both are demonized. Putin is now demonized as Hitler. Putin is being baited just like Hitler. Jews in Ukraine declared war on ethnic Russians. And when the Covid narrative failed all of a sudden the news became all about Ukraine and Putin. It is a narrative to keep you distracted while the stock markets crash and interest rates go to the moon. The Fed must chase inflation, and when it does the stock and real estate and bond markets are going to crater. From a political standpoint something must be done to take the heat off of them – so they went overboard taunting the bear. It was not some plan but political expediency.

    Not accusing Kyle of this, but this line of thought that every political actor is controlled is common conspiracy theory found on the net and in many books. I think I know why too. The belief in the one all powerful god who controls earth from his heavenly golden throne has translated into the one all powerful earth controller who is Satan or a secret society. This theory does have merit, because in ancient alien literature they claim our creators – the Anunnaki – remain on earth and control us through secret societies and even the Church in Rome. I maintain humans are artificial genetically engineered specie which has been controlled by myth for millenium. So I agree that control mechanisms have been put on humanity, but I am sure those old controls are fading – and thus for the big push to control us in a new way with technology. It’s not like we haven’t been in total lockdown – we have been for most of our history – because in the Anunnaki story – we were specifically created as a slave race.

    Yukon Jack on February 25, 2022 at 3:05 pm

    I agree with Lobro’s comment. I believe Hitler was authentic, and so is Putin.

    This idea every single political actor is in on it stems from belief in the all powerful one true god. You can see this belief manifest on message boards where theists of every stripe make arguments that God is in control of world events. Basically the omnipotent God becomes the omnipotent secret society or omnipotent devil to explain events. Every world event and political actor is in on it and all the world a stage as masterminds control every single thing.

    This belief in God translates into there are no authentic political actors on the world stage, they are all controlled from a single source (God, Illuminati, Freemasons, WEF, etc)

    How many times have you read right on this forum about how Satan is in charge of all these bad things? Well, which is it, God or Satan? Eh? People are not very logical about this, if God is in charge then why doesn’t this all powerful being just dispose of Satan with a wink of his mighty eye? Why did God cast Satan to earth? He could of cast Satan to Uranus or some other planet, not earth.

    I don’t think Brandon Smith knows the real game in play. The world economic system is an unstable debt pyramid that is going to collapse some day. The Rothschilds et al know this and need to stay one step ahead of the collapse, so that they benefit from the reset not get wiped out by it. So Nuland fosters the Maidan color revolution and installs Jews in Ukraine, they immediately start persecuting Russians in Eastern provinces, this is bait to lure Putin in no different then Hitler going into Poland for the same reason. Now that Putin has committed they can start a new cold war or even a regional hot war. And while Russia is busy in the Ukraine Israel can go bomb Syria and attack Iran.

    So understand what WW3 means to Rothschild, a cover story for the collapse of the debt system, all can be blamed on Putin and Russia. And while war rages they can impose dictatorial control over all western states under the cover of this new emergency.

    The big difference between Hitler and Putin is that Hitler got dragged into the war to early, Germany had rockets and jet engines and almost had the bomb, if Hitler could of delayed another 10 years they might of won easily. Putin does have the bomb and hypersonic delivery so the tables are turned, so long as Russia is willing to use the nukes the west will have to cower or lose everything.

    Cutting Russia off with total sanctions is a recipe for nuclear WW3.

    So even if there are earth controllers, Greys on the moon, or alien proxies on earth, they do not have absolute control, and thus some real actors do break free and then pummel Jewish controlled governments. Hitler took on Jewry but he underestimated their power and lost. Putin has bided his time and it looks to me he is winning. Putin stopped the northern advance of Greater Israel in Syria, and Putin has now trumped the Jewish takeover of Ukraine. Jews gotta hate him for both.

    And few people realize why Jews frequent so many governments, because Jews invented the government with their monotheistic god construct, so naturally the Jew believes they have the innate right to run all states. If I tell a child they were born special and chosen by god to be god’s representative on earth then you have the natural Jewish attraction to political power. Jews are basically told they are rule over the rest of us, the Goyim.

    A few prefatory words. I was already out of college when Bloom’s translation was published in 1968, and so Bloom’s Republic was not my first. (My first was Cornford’s, my second a revised Jowett’s.) When I got out of the army in 1969, I was pointed to Bloom by a very close friend who was then taking his philosophy PhD. My friend had been referred to the translation by either Stephen Toulmin or Henry David Aiken (I no longer recall which). When I sought out my former classical philosophy prof for his opinion of Bloom—now long deceased, he was a man who read Attic Greek and Ciceronian, Virgilian, and Augustinian Latin fluently—he told me that it was easily the most faithful translation he had ever seen. He then said that he hoped that Bloom, for posterity’s sake, would translate the entirety of the Platonic corpus. I can’t imagine higher praise.

    For the record, my teacher was a LaSallian Christian Brother—and by no means a Straussian. Nor, heaven be thanked, am I.*

    Now that that’s out of the way, let me say that to write, as you do, that “Bloom’s translation of Plato’s Republic is celebrated mostly by Straussians” might well be true today, when there is much more awareness of Bloom’s background and associations than there was prior to 1987. Yet I do not think that one classicist in ten thousand knew or cared a damn about his sociopolitical associations either when the translation was published or for the first twenty years after.

    I myself knew nothing of Bloom’s association with Strauss till I learned of it from some review or other of The Closing of the American Mind in or around 1990, when, if I recall aright, I read the book. Since I have no Greek, I shan’t be so foolish as to express an opinion of the translation’s faithfulness, but the men I’ve already referred to certainly did have Greek—and much else besides—and I sincerely do not believe that they would have failed to notice, had it been there, the sound of a Straussian ax being ground in the background.

    Put otherwise, my suspicion is that those who declare Bloom’s Republic translation Straussian are far better acquainted with Strauss and his disciples (or less charitably, his sycophants) than with Plato and his doctrines. In saying that, I mean no disrespect to you and your own opinion. Still, the dismissal of Bloom’s translation as Straussian strikes me as a criticism that verges on the extreme.**

    On the other hand, I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Bloom’s Republic is little used in an undergraduate context because of the, shall we say, unfriendliness of its prose style. No one, of course, can entirely escape the context of his birth and development, and since I came of age in the sixties, the language of the sixties will never lose its easy familiarity, whereas that of the thirties feels occasionally more akin to Cotton Mather. So I can see how a youngster who first encounters Plato today might find Bloom’s Republic as impenetrable as my schoolfellows and I once found Jowett’s.
    ____________

    *I was introduced to Leo Strauss and his concept of secret writing in the mid-seventies via a collection of essays by Willmoore Kendall called Contra Mundum. Kendall, who had some years earlier published a well-received study of Machiavelli, was so deeply shaken by Strauss’s Thoughts on Machiavelli (publ. 1958) that, in a long essay-review of Strauss’s book, he (Kendall) effectively repudiated the bulk of his own work and made no attempt to conceal what he had done! As everyone knows, there are several famous passages in the Gospels (notably the parable of the Unjust Steward) where Our Lord plainly teaches the importance of learning whatever can be learned, even when the source is wicked men or one’s enemies. In that context, may I say that there are few, if any, writers from whom I have learned more about the wiles of the devious human mind than I have from Strauss.

    **Furthermore, the America to which Straussians, with or without triple parentheses, represented a more or less grave threat thirty years ago is now as dead as the England of Edward the Confessor and Harold Godwinson. We are all Anglo-Saxons living as outlaws under a (((Norman))) conquest.

    Surely you don’t think Bloom was being quoted approvingly by Cathey?

    If I may, and with respect, what is appalling about Smith’s comment is that he appears to think that Bloom’s chilling insight—”World War II was really an educational experiment undertaken to force those who do not accept these principles to do so”—is mistaken.

    In other words, it hardly matters whether Dr. Cathey was quoting Gottfried quoting Bloom approvingly or disapprovingly. Likewise, it doesn’t even matter whether Bloom thought that World War II, when considered as an experiment in persuasion via mass murder, was a good thing or a bad. (I myself am by no means certain that he thought it was a good thing, but that is also neither here nor there.)

    The value of the quoted sentences lies in the shocking bluntness of their truth. What they reveal, what they serve to remind all with ears to hear, is that nothing less than utter contempt for the lives of us goyim has been a characteristic of this country’s (((rulers))) for at least the past eleven decades.

    So with the verb changed to the singular form, the misspelling corrected, and a pair of em-dashes added to further help out the reader, this is what results:

American ziocons have been very happy with Khristya Freeland (a progeny of a Nazi collaborator and committed banderite) because she is a rabid Russophobe. Today, Khristya Freeland (a Deputy of Trudeau) is the main promoter of fascism in Canada. Her actions against truckers of Freedom Convoy are an insult to the accomplishments of western civilization. She is a barbarian supported by American ziocons and Canadian neonazis.

    There is no way to whitewash the stain of the Jewish State material support for the neonazi Azov Battalion (these war criminals have been supplied with Israel-made rifles) and the Canadian army training of Ukrainian neonazis.

    As for the US army, it is tragic that American soldiers do not read Smedley Butler, the most decorated Marine in U.S. history. The US army is conditioned to serve Bankers’ Wars.

    This was by no means limited to Ukraine’s West. Right Sector led the January 19 attacks on police in Kyiv that even opposition leaders criticized, with one protester saying the far-right bloc had “breathed new life into these protests.” Andriy Parubiy, the unofficial “commander of Maidan,” founded the Social-National Party of Ukraine — a barely even winking allusion to Nazism — that later became Svoboda. By January 2014, even NBC was admitting that “right-wing militia-type toughs are now one of the strongest factions leading Ukraine’s protests.” What was meant to be a revolution for democracy and liberal values ended up featuring ultranationalist chants from the 1930s and prominent displays of fascist and white supremacist symbols, including the American Confederate flag

    Here are a few data points that indicate that Putin may be in on it:

    – Timing: This crisis is perfectly timed to distract from the collapsing Covid narrative

    – Nazi: Putin and Lavrov’s incessant platitudes about Nazi’s and Denaizification do not ring true. Ukraine is run by ZOG, as are Svaboda, Azov and Right Brigades. If Putin were to really go after the Ukrainian leadership then he chicken swingers would be squeeling and kvetching about him being an “anti-semite”.

    – Putin has never contradicted the Covid narrative and seems to be up to his ears with Gamela and Sputnik V

    – Slow progress: If all this ZOG theater has indeed been created to form a new crisis and distract from the old, then we can be certain that it will drag on for a long time. The longer this “invasion” continues the more we can be certain that this is just another psyop.

    – Zelensky: He doesn’t seem to be overly concerned (see body language video above)

    – Swift: They still haven’t kicked Russia out of Swift which would cause the collapse of their IMF/WB/BIS fiat money fountain.

    I could go on and on. I am not certain what is going on, I am open to any new information or “data points”.

    But, in fact, as the late Sam Francis explained in various books and essays (e.g., Leviathan and Its Enemies, 2016), this Neocon vision of a new world order is nothing less than a form of managerial kleptocracy, the control by powerful elites in our (permanent) government and big corporations who talk incessantly about democracy, but in fact use that term to disguise the increasing dominance they exercise over every facet of public and private life, whether in the United States, Western Europe, or since 1991 over most of the former Eastern Bloc.

    Yea, and this has generally been a step forward in the human experience, esp in the context of the Soviet bloc.

    This doesn’t make it right, or even good enough.

    Affairs can be improved.

    I notice that in his own words, Putin speaks not to any future for the region, but in a reactionary language to NATO.

    Ukraine is a self-evidently the case in point that neither Western nor Russian politics can speak to the needs of the region.

    I prefer to avoid finding any solace in Putin’s jingoism, re the mother and Vater-lands… And the fact is that since the collapse of the USSR, it’s just the economy stupid, for Russia, just as it is everywhere today.

    As to which poisons of national elite privilege any regular Joe may prefer… Pick your plutocrat. In USA we measure them by silos of profits that we pretend everyone has a stake in. If you’re rich, those profits buy you buy gilded estates and Ivy League experiences for your kids, and if you’re poor you just want the TV and burgers and the gas in your tank for the drive-thru at the strip mall. All the details past this are career tracks and fetishism.

    It used to be a good way gave life meaning: test of strength, esprit de corps, some plundering and raping, honor of conquest.

    Now it’s just a dynamic for GDP.

    You need some kind of ideological ju-ju to get excited about: purity of your blood, swords to ploughshares, techno innovation, winning hearts and minds, blah blah getting a penis, losing a penis, expressing your true nature, paper or plastic.

    How can Russia avoid the reality that everything is just about modes of consumption? All of Russia’s power is oligarchical, just like everywhere.

    So is Russian Starbucks nobler and more authentic expression of a proud culture than Korean Starbucks?

    If the Russian national ralkying cry is Just say no to Starbucks!

    Gas pipelines, palaces and yachts, commodities futures? (((The Torah)))?

    There are no principles any more. Just a very dynamic machine with some chaotic oscillations which define the perimeters.

    It’s almost like everyone looks forward to the nukes going off because the sheer gradient of the event would constitute a relief from all the fussing over lifestyle. People aren’t built for infinite choice of the means of existence.

    Absolutely fantastic piece summarizing the situation in the Ukraine, and the state of the world in which we live!

    When we look in the mirror and see there our real enemy, let’s not be too hard on ourselves, for this enemy we see is the creation of our own basic life instincts and uniquely-human evolutionarily-gifted (and cursed) genes. The system of the financial technoplex (the WEF globalist mafia) was the inevitable outcome of myriad forces over which we really have no control…no “free will”.

    Right now, we can say that Putin’s Russia and Xi’s China are refusing (due to cultural-psychological issues and even some racial issues) to fully assimilate into the globalist system, but they have already partially assimilated, just less so than have the US and EU. They are therefore delaying the advance of the WEF globalist mafia, but only that…delaying. In this sense then they are acting as true saviors of humanity, although they don’t see it that way. Reality too is that they are themselves in many ways already integrated into the globalist financial technoplex, and as long as we have an economy that can maintain the technological “progress” desired by nearly all of us, it is most probable that in just another generation or so, the WEF globalist mafia will have achieved total global control via its mechanisms of finance-investment-banking and technology, and ultimately backed by military power.

    We, the members of the lower economic class actually keep ourselves under control by our own wants and social drives, and right now, those of us in the “developed world” can’t even live, feed or clothe or shelter ourselves, without dependency on the globalist-controlled system. We are slaves of our own needs-desires and the people, under capitalism, who own the corporations that produce-provide them, or the people, under socialism, who are the bureaucrats in charge of the state-owned industries.

    We see then on the horizon ahead over the next few decades a system of absolute power and hence the inevitable absolute corruption under the elites of the WEF mafia. Ironically, those elites now see themselves as saviors and visionary leaders of humanity as they carry us ever closer to a future of being happy, Huxleyized and Orwellized, transhuman borg. Hope for avoiding that? 1) The global economy would need to collapse due to failing to make the absolutely necessary (for its survival) transition to non-fossil energy and closed-loop material resource utilization with even higher levels of throughput potential than our current unsustainable economy, and/or 2) System-internal social pressures that could mount if the population is not kept properly “opiated” and propagandized. If these two do not occur, i.e. if the transition is smoothly and timely enough accomplished, we will be borg and be happy. Ah well, perhaps this is our evolutionary fate, but the outcome is still far from certain with such a vastly complex and open system as history is. Meanwhile, I’ll applaud Putin for having the brains and balls to stand-up to the globalist mafia!

    In addition to the UK and France, five non-nuclear NATO members – Turkey, Germany, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands – currently host American nuclear bombs on their soil, according to the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation. Seven other NATO states provide assistance for nuclear missions through conventional air support, and all 30 members, excluding France, belong to a body to discuss nuclear policy issues, the Nuclear Planning Group.

    The long term aim of NATO is to go further than HITLER and the NAZIs to control the WHOLE WORLD. NATO wants to play God and determine the future of humanity.

    The US-run Nazification of Ukraine (with the help of Canada) is just another example of Operation Gladio.

    People kind of know already that Uncle Schmuel is an old, psychopathic, murderous gangster able to commit all sorts of indecent acts. What is still not widely known by the world audience is the perfidy of US Jewry that has been participating both actively and passively in the Nazification of Europe.

    American ziocons have been nurturing and protecting the Canadian community of Nazis for decades. This is how Canada has acquired a number of Nazi memorials while running regular Nazi parades. The Jewish Communities of Canada and the US have accepted the Nazification of Canada’s client Ukraine because they knew geography and hoped that the Nazified Ukraine will attack Russia. The Jews’ Russophobia trumped decency.

    Irving, Zundel, Haverbeck, and many others were punished, beaten, and imprisoned for an honest scholarship that did not agree with holobiz lies a la Elie Wiesel. Yet when Nuland-Kagan went into direct collaboration with Nazis in Ukraine, the Jews in Canada and the US have accepted the collaboration as a good sign. Israeli/Ukrainian citizen Kolomojsky has financed the self-proclaimed Nazi Azov battalion, whereas the Jewish State sent Israel-made rifles to the Nazis.

    The Nazification of Ukraine is the result of the Jewish (ziocon) effort.
    This is a bitter truth that the Jewish Community worldwide must either react to – better loud and violent – or accept and become the embodiment of moral scum.
