    We’ve all been expecting the smear job on Victor Orban. As in their minds were made up before it all started:

    Is Viktor Orbán a racist? You decide……

    The stacked deck is ready for the leader who thought their countries belong to the historic peoples who lived in then, built them and shed blood defending the soil of their forefathers.

    What a hateful, antiquated, simplistic an racist point of view, says Washington and Brussels.

    Were I Orban, I would immediately volunteer to broker a peace deal between the West and Russia. He has little to lose and — with dementia Joe at the helm — a possible share in a victory long overdue.

  3. JWalters says:

    I always enjoy the interesting discussions between you two guys, thanks very much.

    Ala notes the post-2016 election hysteria about fictional Russian “meddling”, and no mention about actual Israeli meddling. An honest postmortem on Hillary’s campaign would have revealed the huge Israeli influence, and that had to be hidden. So the “meddling” topic was redirected. One piece in the tapestry of solid evidence pointing to the vast Israeli conspiracy to control America’s media and government.

    Russia’s motives for his attack on Ukraine’s military installation has deep roots, it seems to me. The Zionist empire of financial pirates, headquartered in the City of London and Wall Street, has a long history of using UK and US militaries to attack nations and plunder their resources. And Russia has vast natural resources. Plus, Putin has recently extricated Russia from the clutches of the Zionist financial pirates (as has Chine). So when the Russians see the Zionist pirates directing a 2014 coup in Ukraine, and directing a subsequent build-up of weapons, they naturally think the pirates are getting ready to attack Russia. So they take out the weapons build-up to prevent the coming attach.

    The Zionist factor also explains why the demonizing of Russia has been maintained to today. According to renowned WWII London tomes reporter Douglas Reed, the war profiteering bankers financed the Communist revolution in Russia to establish a permanent war between Russia and the rest of Europe. A large-scale divide & conquer play.

    So today they are still flogging that “conflict”, despite Russia no longer being Communist (and despite the breakup of the Soviet Union). Via their wholly owned corporate media they are milking that divide as long as they can. What appear to be nonsensical actions by the US and EU make perfect sense for the bank gangsters calling the shots from behind the curtain.

    Reed’s masterful research is here.
    “The Controversy of Zion”

    The Zionist factor can also help explain the fascism in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. These are all parts of the former British empire, and are still parts of the City of London banking empire, with its enormous control over politics and press. The US is somewhat protected by its 1st Amendment, although that is under siege.

    It seems to me that a huge percent our problems would be removed if we could remove the corrupt, evil, financial octopus manipulating our society. Some specific steps are given near the end of “War Profiteers and Israel’s Bank”

  4. Dumbo says:

    As someone said, lockdowns failed for two years, vaccines failed for a year, then Putin came and ended the Covid pandemic in three hours by invading Ukraine. 😀

  5. Corvinus says:

    Putin has gravely miscalculated. It targeted and ratcheted up his hatred for democracy with previous stops in Georgia and Chechnya. He thought the Ukraine would be a cakewalk. Well, the American GOP and the Alt Right toadies fell for the trappings of the language of Christian nationalism. He is using ideological means to achieve a non ideological end game, and it is a convenient narrative.

    There is a colossal bungling by the Russian military thus far. Spearheading the movement are seasoned veterans who are getting their clocks cleaned. It’s one thing to invade and seize control. It’s another thing to keep your supply lines intact and occupy a hostile place for a long period of time. How did Afghanistan work out? Where is this groundswell of ethnic Russian support in the breakaway provinces, as well as his own citizens? There has been brilliant messaging by Ukrainian leaders. The ruble is worthless.

    It’s Putin’s War.

  6. This pandemic is so scripted and contrived you can practically see the puppet strings at work on nearly all of the participating politicians and media personalities.

    Given that they are winding down the virus propaganda machine just in time to ramp up the war propaganda machine – until the next virus comes along right on cue – let’s put their fear-mongering lies under a microscope and examine them in order to arm ourselves with the knowledge we need to guard ourselves against the next wave of deception:


    -New Normal
    -Build Back Better
    -Follow The Science
    -Flatten the Curve
    -Alone Together
    -Stay Home
    -Protect/Save the NHS
    -Save Lives-Your Home is Your Lifeline
    -Stay Home-Save Lives, Avoid Stage 5
    -Don’t Panic, Don’t Rush, Don’t Overstock
    -Trust The Science
    -Stay smart – Stay Safe – Stay Open
    -NHS Staff: We Stay At Work for You – You Stay At Home For Us
    -Test, Trace, Treat
    -Only You Can Prevent the Spread
    -The vaccine will save us – The booster will save us – The fourth dose is the answer
    -Your freedom ends where your contagion begins.
    -Believe In The Science
    -I wear my mask to protect you and you wear your mask to protect me
    -Out of an abundance of caution
    -We’re all in this together
    -It’s Safe and Effective
    -There is no evidence that that vaccine is harmful…

    These are not science terms and phrases. They are hypnotic chants meant to induce an audience into a suggestive state of mind – this is why they are repeated over and over and over again.

    Furthermore, masking has historically been an integral part of an initiation ritual: in our case the initiation into the “new normal” the globalists have planned for us.

    Put another way – as you all are of course aware – all of this was one giant world-wide psychological operation. Here is a collection of authorities admitting this with its horrible effects woven through them. Take the time to read through this–the crimes are horrible:

    Just look at the utter idiot Corvinus above to see just how easy it is to fool people, and just how terrible the idea of democracy is.

  8. Dumbo says:

    Wow, now that Covidius has talked, I am sure that Putin is shaking in his boots.

    But, actually, everything is usually the opposite of what Covidius says, so no need to worry.

  9. @Corvinus

    Thanks for the Deep State agitprop.

    I forgot to read through the New York Slimes and Washington Compost this morning–but knew I could count on you for the short version.
