Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, is the most demonized person in the western world since Osama bin Laden and Adolf Hitler. Hillary Clinton says Putin is “the new Hitler.” US President Biden says Putin is too evil to be permitted to stay in office. Despite these hard characterizations of the Russian leader, the Kremlin has... Read More
Duff Cooper, Viscount Norwich, was the only British minister who resigned over the Munich Agreement of 1938. His autobiography was titled Old Men Forget. I expect they do, but I remember. I remember when business, even large business, operated on handshakes without contracts. Business could operate this way because people in those days had good... Read More
The Kremlin’s weak responses to provocations continue to encourage the West to bring Russia more, and more dangerous, provocations. It is irresponsible for Washington and Washington’s NATO puppet states to provoke Russia. But seeing weakness in the Kremlin, it is hard for the West to restrain itself. The West now dismisses Russian threats as bluster.... Read More
My forebodings/predictions about the Kremlin’s limited go-slow war in Ukraine are proving correct. Putin and Russia are demonized. Unprecedented sanctions amounting to piracy and theft have been imposed on Russia. The US and Europe are joining the war as de facto combatants. More countries are joining NATO with the result being the prospect of more... Read More
President Trump’s Free Speech Depends on Who Owns Twitter
How is it that in the exceptional and indispensable USA, a former American president can be denied his constitutionally guaranteed freedom of speech by a private communications company? How can a mere private company cancel the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights? How is it possible that the Constitutionally guaranteed rights of the lowest... Read More
When the Sun reappeared after the nuclear winter that followed the 21st century’s nuclear war, no life was left in what formerly was Europe, Great Britain, United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. Japanese no longer existed. The only white-skinned people were Russian and American/European expatriates living in South America, Africa, Thailand and other... Read More
If the inflation narrative we are being fed is true, the sanctions policy of the US government makes no sense as the worst sufferers are the American and European populations who are paying for the supply restrictions in higher prices and interest rates. As Russia is an exporter of energy and minerals, higher prices result... Read More
Oliver Stone on Facebook writes that rabid anti-Russian propaganda has set the stage for a false flag low-yield nuclear explosion in Ukraine that the world has been trained to interpret as Russia’s doing. The success of Washington’s perception war and saturation of the CNN/Fox airwaves with condemnation of Russia could lead to hopes that a... Read More
esterday morning I posted an explanation of why Russian liberalism was generating a wider war that could end in Armageddon. I find no relief in The Saker acknowledging the same unfolding of events. The Saker and Andrei Martyanov are two competent analysts of Russian military capability. Until recently they have acknowledged no problem with Putin’s... Read More
Vladimir Putin, demonized in the West for his “depravity,” to use the words of Defense Department spokesman John Kirby ( ), is really just an old-fashioned American liberal. Putin’s old-fashioned 19th century liberal beliefs are no match for Washington’s 21st century Satanism. Putin’s old-fashioned beliefs make him and his country sitting ducks for Washington. Apparently,... Read More
The US Constitution with the Bill of Rights dates from 1789. All of the safeguards against central government growth and ability to indebt the country have been eroded. Today the Federal national debt is $30 trillion, about two times the gross domestic product of the 28 countries that comprise the European Union, whose combined populations... Read More
I still have forebodings about the manner in which the Kremlin is conducting the Ukrainian operation. There is no doubt that the Russians had to come to the defense of the Donbass republics. Having done little other than to provide the republics with some weapons and intelligence, for eight years the Kremlin allowed the Ukrainian... Read More
Today in Florida the only places you need a mask are offices of medical conglomerates, such as Ascension (Sacred Heart), a hospital group that also has doctor’s offices where the MD is hired and not in private practice, and Quest Diagnostics where medical tests are performed. In bureaucratic organizations, once a rule is introduced the... Read More
For the third French presidential election in a row, Marine Le Pen lost to a candidate of Jewish banking interests, with the electorate choosing globalism and multiculturalism over French identity. For father and daughter the Le Pens have lost 8 French presidential elections. It seems conclusive that a French patriot who stands for France and... Read More
While we fight abroad we are invaded at home
US immigration policy, or lack thereof, permits massive numbers of people of color (POC), but not white people of European ethnicity, to enter the US by claiming persecution in their own country. The limit on this right, Title 42 Expulsion, which expires at the end of next month, permits expulsions of asylum seekers if they... Read More
The Corrupt US & British governments, greatly aided and abetted by Western presstitutes, have destroyed the First Amendment protection of journalism. Julian Assange’s extradition to the US to stand trial for espionage signals the termination of a free press as a method of holding government accountable. Henceforth, any journalist who publishes a leaked story unfavorable... Read More
I remember when the telephone was a useful and appreciated device. The digital revolution, one of humanity’s most unfortunate developments, has turned the telephone into a nuisance and a threat. The telephone is such a nuisance that most people no longer answer when it rings or even bother to set up the feature to record... Read More
Identity politics, political correctness, virtue signaling, and wokeism have broken down intellectual integrity and scholarly standards in the academic world. Scholarship now exists in attenuated forms that serve ideological purposes, not factual ones. In short, “scholars” have come to serve ideological agendas, not truth. Even mathematics and science have been corrupted. Recently, Florida Education Commissioner... Read More
Easter used to be an important Christian holiday. The holiday has fallen on hard times due to Jewish attacks on public displays of Christian religious symbols and to Spring Break which has replaced the Easter holiday. Today children are socialized into Easter as bunny and candy day. In the marvelous movie, “Chariots of Fire,” the... Read More
As I emphasized from the beginning, Russia’s intervention in Ukraine was far too little and far too late. I have no doubt that the Kremlin will achieve its goal of cleansing the Donbass republics of the Western-supported Nazi Azov brigade and the Ukrainian army, but the Kremlin has pissed away the far more important opportunity...

Calculate your slave status before boasting of “American freedom”
For decades on or about April 15, I published a tax day column pointing out that working Americans in our time are as enslaved as 19th century blacks on cotton plantations. I never in 30 or more years saw any response from any economist, historian, or anyone. I think my statement was regarded as too... Read More
That is the conclusion from “The Vaccine Death Report” prepared by David John Sorensen and Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, available here — — and here — . You should read the entire report and understand how cruelly and intentionally you were deceived and to comprehend that the deaths from the Covid “vaccine” are likely far from... Read More
No useful information about Ukraine can be obtained from Western media. The Russian military operates without the need of news releases, so little information is provided. Last week Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said, “Of course they [Ukraine] can win this. The proof is literally in the outcomes that you’re seeing everyday.” Kirby must get his... Read More
As Facts Cannot Be Acknowledged, the Insane Drive into Nuclear War Cannot be Stopped
Some readers have asked why Russia regards Finland’s membership in NATO as a provocation. For the same reason that Ukraine’s membership is a provocation: US missile bases on Russia’s border. The US does not currently have hypersonic missiles, but will sooner or later. Such missiles on Russia’s borders could reach Moscow in 3 or 4... Read More
Russia’s Ukrainian intervention in behalf of the former part of Russia known as the Donbass region consisting of two Russian recognized independent republics, Donetsk and Luhansk, could have served as a warning to the West and ended Washington’s provocations of Russia that are leading to nuclear armageddon. But the Kremlin dropped the ball. The Russians... Read More
As I reported on April 4 ( ), Disney, once upon a time a respected and trusted company, is today a lobby for sexual perversion. The Florida legislature passed the “Parental Rights in Education” bill into law, and Disney’s CEO, Bob Chapek, has taken issue with it. As far as Chapek is concerned, the rights... Read More
Thinking that Ukraine had agreed, or was about to agree, to be a neutral country, Russia pulled its troops out of the Kiev area. These troops had surrounded Kiev and occupied its suburbs. When the Russians left, a propaganda blitz erupted in the Western whore media and government councils that the Russians had been defeated... Read More
Florida citizens were extremely fortunate that they got Ron DeSantis for governor. The Democrats almost succeeded in stealing the election. The corrupt Democrats might succeed next time, because the Biden Department of Justice (sic) is trying to discredit fair election safeguards as “racist violations of civil rights laws.” The DOJ is very close to taking... Read More
Just as everything you were told about Covid by the media and health and government officials was false, so is everything you have been told by the same propagandistic liars about Ukraine. Americans have had nothing but lies since the assassination of US President John F. Kennedy, of his brother, US Senator Robert Kennedy President-in-Waiting,... Read More
The White House Moron wants to tax unrealized capital gains, and some neoliberal economists think it is a good idea. Let’s take a look and see what we think. A capital gain is an increase in the price of something since you purchased it. It could be a stock, a bond, a house, artwork, gold,... Read More
The idiot Biden Regime’s sanctions have turned out to be a great gift to Russia while driving up inflation in the US and its empire, forcing Washington to remove some of the sanctions. The sanctions have created a great opportunity for import substitution in Russia. Russian investment in the Russian economy prevents foreign ownership from... Read More
Earlier today I posted my take on the economic and military developments on the Russian front. Based on news reports, I envisioned a gold ruble dethroning the US dollar and collapsing the Bretton Woods system which has enabled the US and its financial sector to exploit the world. I wrote at the time that the... Read More
Gold ruble, Ukraine military collapse
Lots of startling changes yesterday. Russia announced, apparently, a gold-backed or gold-related ruble. I haven’t had time to think about all the implications. Information is hard to come by, because the US blocks Russian news in order to control the Ukraine narrative and war propaganda. The Bretton Woods system collapsed when the West seized Russian... Read More
“Without any doubt, we stand before turbulent and also dangerous times, but we hold an historic trump card in our hands. It consists in the fact that the other side does not act according to the rules of reason but strives out of motives of greed and power and therefore, cannot do anything other than... Read More
Kimberly Gardner, a black American Democrat circuit attorney in St Louis hired a black American FBI agent to help her frame white American Republican Missouri governor on false charges. Gardner’s scheme blew up in her face. This corrupt George Soros-backed Democrat prosecutor faces disciplinary hearings and loss of law license. She would face worse but... Read More
Those who rely on Western media have the impression of a stalled Russian campaign in Ukraine with demoralized Russian soldiers deserting and surrendering to Ukrainians in order to get something to eat. Russian soldiers are even allegedly shooting holes in the gasoline tanks of their motorized equipment so that they cannot advance, out of sympathy... Read More
If not it means a devastating war
Readers regard the West’s seizing of Russian assets and foreign exchange as acts of war and wonder why Putin does not declare them as such. The sanctions are weapons being used in an effort to destroy Russia just as if they were military weapons. The countries imposing sanctions on Russia are just as involved in... Read More
I have warned many times that Russia’s go-slow war can result in wider war. The longer the war, the more opportunity for the Western idiots to blunder into it. Scott Ridder agrees with me: “So what’s going on right now is an effort by NATO to flex its muscles to convince itself that it has... Read More
Yesterday I reported that Anatoly Chubais, who created the Russian oligarch system during the Yeltsin years, the system in which wealth and capital flowed out of Russia, has fled Russia. He was a member of the Gang of Three with Latvian Alexei Kudrin and central bank chief Nabiullina. They convinced Putin of an economic policy... Read More
Putin is catching on
Putin Orders Ruble Payments for Energy But he has a way to go When will Putin realize that Russian default on loans is the proper response to the seizure of Russian assets? Russia would have to be extremely foolish to borrow another cent from the West. Therefore, why protect access to foreign borrowing by continuing... Read More
Since the Russian action in Ukraine began, provoked by Washington’s cold shoulder to Russian security concerns, Washington, in addition to doing all possible to keep the conflict going, has also dumped three more provocations on the Kremlin: an attempted coup or “color revolution” in the former Russian province of Kazakhstan, NATO military maneuvers currently under... Read More
Putin is a liberal in the old fashioned sense that no longer exists in the West. He believes in sustaining a network of laws and agreements that resolve disputes diplomatically instead of with violence. He believes that government should serve the people and not the economic interests of the elite. He believes that religion is... Read More
This is what the White House spokes idiot Jen Psaki describes as “wrecking” the Russian economy: The unprecedented sanctions against Russia have pushed energy costs higher in Europe and the US, driving record inflation and making it ever more expensive for farmers and truckers to fuel their machinery, afford fertilizer or keep up with other... Read More
It seems the Kremlin still has delusions that there is morality in the West. The Kremlin has appealed to “international structures to make Ukrainian radicals release civilians.” What is the point of such a useless appeal? Why is the Kremlin attributing morality to the enemy that is trying to destroy Russia? Does the Kremlin think... Read More
A friend insisted that I watch some of the US TV reporting of Russia’s police action in Eastern Ukraine, called a “Russian invasion” by the Western Presstitutes. He said it was such comically infantile war propaganda that he was insulted that the media would think Americans stupid enough to fall for it. To sum it... Read More
The Russians, overcome with awe of the West and doubtful of their own validity, must have been absent when Hugo Chavez gave the most famous speech ever given at the United Nations on September 20, 2006. Paraphrasing his words, this is what Chavez said referring to US President George W. Bush: “Yesterday, at this very... Read More
Will Russia Be Defeated By Her Own Central Bank?
According to the Wall Street Journal, today President Putin has nominated for a third term Elvira Nabiullina as chief of the Russian central bank: “Ms. Nabiullina’s reappointment solidifies her role as one of Russia’s top economic generals, tasked with keeping the country’s financial system functioning and commerce flowing while fighting rages in Ukraine. Her current... Read More
In his speech to the assembly of national, regional, and district leaders on Russia’s response to the sanctions, Putin first factually describes the situation in Ukraine, how it developed, and Russia’s objective. It stands in striking contrast to Western propaganda. Putin’s speech is also notable because he acknowledges that Russia has a fifth column that... Read More
A commentator sent to me on Wednesday the economic component of Putin’s speech about the economic measures the Kremlin is taking to adjust to the economic sanctions, asking me to decipher it. Putin’s speech is reproduced below. Perhaps I am mistaken, but it looks to me like Russia was not prepared for sanctions and is... Read More
As readers know, I refer often to “dumbshit Americans.” I am beginning to wonder if the same applies to Russians. As for dumbshit Americans, the evidence is never ending. We now have a Pew Research poll of Americans, if it is accurate, that finds that 36% of American Republicans and 35% of American Democrats support... Read More
