Why is Vladimir Putin standing up to the richest and most powerful men in the world? Why is he bad-mouthing their “pet project” Globalization and trash-talking their “Great Reset”? Does he really think these corporate mandarins and “silver spoon” elites are going to listen to what he has to say or does he realize that they’re just going to hate him more than ever? Why is he doing this?

Here’s what’s going on: At the end of January, Putin was given the opportunity to address the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland (online). The WEF is a prestigious assembly of political leaders, corporatists and billionaire elites many of who are directly involved in the massive global restructuring project that is currently underway behind the smokescreen of the Covid-19 pandemic. Powerful members of the WEF decided that the Coronavirus presented the perfect opportunity to implement their dystopian strategy which includes a hasty transition to green energy, A.I., robotics, transhumanism, universal vaccination and a comprehensive surveillance matrix that detects the location and activities of every human being on the planet. The proponents of this universal police state breezily refer to it as “The Great Reset” which is the latest make-over of the more familiar, “New World Order”. There’s not a hairsbreadth difference between the Reset and one-world government which has preoccupied billionaire activists for more than a century. This is the group to which Putin made the following remarks:

“I would like to speak in more detail about the main challenges ..the international community is facing…. The first one is socioeconomic….. Starting from 1980, global per capita GDP has doubled in terms of real purchasing power parity. This is definitely a positive indicator. Globalisation and domestic growth have led to strong growth in developing countries and lifted over a billion people out of poverty….Still, the main question… is what was the nature of this global growth and who benefitted from it most…..

… developing countries benefitted a lot from the growing demand for their traditional and even new products. However, this integration into the global economy has resulted in more than just new jobs or greater export earnings. It also had its social costs, including a significant gap in individual incomes…. According to the World Bank, 3.6 million people subsisted on incomes of under $5.50 per day in the United States in 2000, but in 2016 this number grew to 5.6 million people....

Meanwhile, globalisation led to a significant increase in the revenue of large multinational, primarily US and European, companies…In terms of corporate profits, who got hold of the revenue? The answer is clear: one percent of the population.

And what has happened in the lives of other people? In the past 30 years, in a number of developed countries, the real incomes of over half of the citizens have been stagnating, not growing. Meanwhile, the cost of education and healthcare services has gone up. Do you know by how much? Three times…

In other words, millions of people even in wealthy countries have stopped hoping for an increase of their incomes. In the meantime, they are faced with the problem of how to keep themselves and their parents healthy and how to provide their children with a decent education….

These imbalances in global socioeconomic development are a direct result of the policy pursued in the 1980s, which was often vulgar or dogmatic. This policy rested on the so-called Washington Consensus with its unwritten rules, when the priority was given to the economic growth based on a private debt in conditions of deregulation and low taxes on the wealthy and the corporations….

As I have already mentioned, the coronavirus pandemic has only exacerbated these problems. In the last year, the global economy sustained its biggest decline since WWII. By July, the labour market had lost almost 500 million jobs…. In the first nine months of the past year alone, the losses of earnings amounted to $3.5 trillion. This figure is going up and, hence, social tension is on the rise.” (“Session of Davos Agenda 2021Online Forum, Putin Addresses World Economic Forum, Jan 27, 2021)

Why is Putin telling his elitist audience these things? Does he think these fatcats don’t know how the system works or how it was originally set up? Does he think they are unaware of the glaring flaws in a system that shifts all of the profits to obscenely wealthy corporations and scheming elites while working people slip further into debt and desperation?

Putin knows how globalisation works, just as he knows who it was designed to benefit. It’s no secret. Check out this quote from the Russian president in a speech nearly 5 years ago:

“Back in the late 1980s-early 1990s, there was a chance not just to accelerate the globalization process but also to give it a different quality and make it more harmonious and sustainable in nature. But some countries that saw themselves as victors in the Cold War, not just saw themselves this way but said it openly, took the course of simply reshaping the global political and economic order to fit their own interests.

In their euphoria, they essentially abandoned substantive and equal dialogue with other actors in international life, chose not to improve or create universal institutions, and attempted instead to bring the entire world under the spread of their own organizations, norms and rules. They chose the road of globalization and security for their own beloved selves, for the select few, but not for everyone.” (President Vladimir Putin, Meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club)

“To the victor belongs the spoils”? Isn’t that what Putin is saying, that Washington figured its Cold War triumph entitled them to create a system whereby they could pillage and loot the rest of the world with impunity?

Indeed, that is precisely what he’s saying. And he knows what he’s talking about, too. Putin has followed developments in global trade for over 20 years. He knows the system is rigged and he knows who rigged it. And now he’s telling them in no uncertain terms that they are responsible for the mess the world is in today. “The world is in crisis, because you fu**ed up.” That’s what he’s saying. It’s not a subtle message, he’s simply laying it on the line. Check out this blurb from an earlier speech by Putin where he shows that he’s not just a capable leader but also an astute critic of social trends linked to globalization:

“It seems like elites don’t see the deepening stratification in society and the erosion of the middle class…(but the situation) creates a climate of uncertainty that has a direct impact on the public mood. Sociological studies conducted around the world show that people in different countries and on different continents tend to see the future as murky and bleak. This is sad. The future does not entice them, but frightens them. At the same time, people see no real opportunities or means for changing anything, influencing events and shaping policy. As for the claim that the fringe and populists have defeated the sensible, sober and responsible minority – we are not talking about populists or anything like that but about ordinary people, ordinary citizens who are losing trust in the ruling class. That is the problem…. ” (President Vladimir Putin, Meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club)

In this one brief comment, Putin shows that he has a better grasp of ‘what is going on’ in the west than any of the numbskulls in congress today. And notice how he ignores the hype about “racial justice”, BLM, “white supremacy” and the other “racialized” bunkum that’s propagated in the media today. He’s not hoodwinked by that nonsense. He knows it’s just another diversion promoted by the cadres of dirtbags who use race and identity politics to conceal their role in the ongoing class war. That’s what’s really going on. The men that Putin is addressing in his speech are the very same men who are doing everything in their power to eviscerate democracy, skewer the middle class and grind America’s working population into dust. It’s plain old class war dolled-up to look like racial unrest. Here’s more from Putin:

“…During the past 20 years we have created a foundation for the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution (AKA–“The Great Reset”) based on the wide use of AI and automation and robotics. The coronavirus pandemic has greatly accelerated such projects and their implementation. However, this process is leading to new structural changes, I am thinking in particular of the labor market. This means that very many people could lose their jobs unless the state takes effective measures to prevent this. Most of these people are from the so-called middle class, which is the basis of any modern society.

…. The rise of economic problems and inequality is splitting society, triggering social, racial and ethnic intolerance. Indicatively, these tensions are bursting out even in the countries with seemingly civil and democratic institutions that are designed to alleviate and stop such phenomena and excesses.

The systemic socioeconomic problems are evoking such social discontent that they require special attention and real solutions. The dangerous illusion that they may be ignored or pushed into the corner is fraught with serious consequences.” (Putin, WEF)

Putin understands that the Covid-related lockdowns and closing of “non-essential” businesses is merely prelude for the massive societal restructuring project elites have in store for us. They’ve already put millions of people out of work and expanded their surveillance capabilities in anticipation of the social unrest they are deliberately inciting. Putin thinks this futuristic strategy is unnecessarily reckless, disruptive and fails to account for intensifying social animosities and widening political divisions that are bound to have a catastrophic impact on democratic institutions. But Putin also knows that his appeal for a more cautious approach will be brushed aside by the billionaire powerbrokers who set the policy and call the shots. Here’s more:

Society will still be divided politically and socially. This is bound to happen because people are dissatisfied not by some abstract issues but by real problems that concern everyone regardless of the political views that people have or think they have. Meanwhile, real problems evoke discontent.

This is a recurrent theme with Putin and one that shows that he has a deeper understanding of what is really happening in both the United States and Europe than any of his peers. Populist candidates, like Trump, have not gained momentum due to thier abilities and charisma, but because the financial situation of millions of Americans continues to deteriorate forcing them to seek remedies outside the establishment candidates. The economic distress is real and widespread and, as Putin notes, it is expressing itself in outbursts of discontent, frustration and rage. Here’s more:

“So, the key question today is how to build a programme of actions in order to not only quickly restore the global and national economies affected by the pandemic, but to ensure that this recovery is sustainable in the long run, relies on a high-quality structure and helps overcome the burden of social imbalances. Clearly… economic growth will largely rely on fiscal incentives with state budgets and central banks playing the key role.

Actually, we can see these kinds of trends in the developed countries and also in some developing economies as well. An increasing role of the state in the socioeconomic sphere at the national level obviously implies greater responsibility and close interstate interaction when it comes to issues on the global agenda.

Calls for inclusive growth and for creating decent standards of living for everyone are regularly made at various international forums. This is how it should be, and this is an absolutely correct view of our joint efforts.

It is clear that the world cannot continue creating an economy that will only benefit a million people, or even the golden billion. This is a destructive precept. This model is unbalanced by default. The recent developments, including migration crises, have reaffirmed this once again.” (Putin, WEF)

Putin’s recommendations, of course, are going to be dismissed with a wave of the hand by the men in power. The last thing these sociopaths want is “inclusive growth.. and decent standards of living for everyone.” That’s not even on their list, and why would it be. After all, they know what they want. “They want more for themselves and less for everyone else.” (George Carlin) Which is why the system works the way it does, because it was constructed with that one solitary goal in mind.

Putin also acknowledges the need for greater state intervention in the economy to counterbalance the more destructive effects of “smash and grab” capitalism. And, while he rejects the swift and far-reaching structural changes (The Great Reset) that would precipitate massive social upheaval, he does support a larger role for the state in providing essential fiscal stimulus, employment and a more equitable distribution of the wealth. This does not imply that Putin supports state socialism. He does not. He merely supports a more regulated and benign form of Capitalism that veers from the “scorched earth” model backed by powerful members of the WEF and other elitist organizations.

With that in mind, Putin makes these specific recommendations:

“We must now proceed from stating facts to action, investing our efforts and resources into reducing social inequality in individual countries and into gradually balancing the economic development standards of different countries and regions in the world. This would put an end to migration crises.”

The focus of this policy aimed at ensuring sustainable and harmonious development are clear. They imply the creation of new opportunities for everyone, conditions under which everyone will be able to develop and realize their potential regardless of where they were born and are living

I would like to point out four key priorities, as I see them.

First, everyone must have comfortable living conditions, including housing and affordable transport, energy and public utility infrastructure. Plus, environmental welfare, something that must not be overlooked.

Second, everyone must be sure that they will have a job that can ensure sustainable growth of income and, hence, decent standards of living. Everyone must have access to an effective system of lifelong education, which is absolutely indispensable now and which will allow people to develop, make a career and receive a decent pension and social benefits upon retirement.

Third, people must be confident that they will receive high-quality and effective medical care whenever necessary, and that the national healthcare system will guarantee access to modern medical services.

Fourth, regardless of the family income, children must be able to receive a decent education and realize their potential. Every child has potential.” (Putin, Davos)

What does it mean that the current president of Russia is now throwing his weight behind a program that is nearly identical to Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s economic Bill of Rights? Doesn’t that seem a bit odd? After all, Putin is a devout Orthodox Christian, a strong proponent of the traditional family, a self-avowed social conservative, and a hardscrabble survivor of the failed Soviet state. Who would have thought that such a man would support a program that provides a decent standard living to every member of society regardless of their circumstances?

But it makes sense, doesn’t it? Putin is pushing for a return to the heavily-regulated “Heyday” of 20th Century capitalism, when workers’ wages were still on the rise, when college tuition and health care were still affordable, and when the American Dream was still within reach of the average guy. People were happier then, because they felt that if they applied themselves, worked like hell, and stashed their savings in the bank; they’d eventually reach their goal. But that’s not true anymore. People are much more pessimistic now and no longer believe that America is the land of opportunity.

Putin wants to rekindle that optimism. He wants to avoid social unrest by implementing programs that provide a more equitable distribution of the wealth. This isn’t a return to Communism. It’s sensible way to soften the harsher effects of unrestrained capitalism, which is presently ravaging the West. Here’s Putin again:

“This is the only way to guarantee the cost-effective development of the modern economy, in which people are perceived as the end, rather than the means…. A strategy, also being implemented by my country, hinges on precisely these approaches. Our priorities revolve around people, their families, and they aim to ensure demographic development, to protect the people, to improve their well-being and to protect their health. We are now working to create favourable conditions for worthy and cost-effective work and successful entrepreneurship and to ensure digital transformation as the foundation of a high-tech future for the entire country, rather than that of a narrow group of companies.

We intend to focus the efforts of the state, the business community and civil society on these tasks and to implement a budgetary policy with the relevant incentives in the years ahead….” (Putin, Davos)

Imagine a political leader who actually put the needs and well-being of his people before the special interests of his deep-pocket donors and shady corporate buddies. Imagine a leader who stood eye-to-eye with the big money guys and told them that their system “sucked” and that they were taking too much for themselves leaving nothing for anyone else. Imagine a leader who invited more criticism, hectoring, demonizing and punitive sanctions for “speaking truth to power” in order to stand on the side of ordinary working people, pensioners, cast-offs and the other victims of this globalist rip-off system.

The reason Putin spoke out at the WEF confab and put himself at risk, was because Putin is one of the “good guys” who actually believes that everyone deserves a shot at a decent life. And that’s what sets Putin apart from the other leaders in the world today. He doesn’t just “talk the talk”, he also “walks the walk.”

    A World of Corruption and Its Connections

    By Stephen J. Gray

    [MORE]

    So much corruption, so many people dead

    So many wars, so many lies we are fed

    So many war criminals in positions of power

    So many countries, these villains destroyed, and devoured

    Bombing and killing using taxpayers’ dollars

    So many helpers obeying these lying horrors

    Carrying out their orders in servile obedience

    So much stupidity from blind allegiance…

    https://graysinfo.blogspot.com/2019/12/so-much-corruption.html

    There is a world of corruption, and the powerful criminals are free

    The past and present rulers are untouchable, even though some are dirty

    Corruption is now “normal,” and some evil gangsters are in control [1]

    Everything that is abnormal, many of these political degenerates extol

    They pay homage to to the money changers, and the globalists as well

    Many of them are war criminals, who have created bloody hell

    Others are criminals who imposed a lockdown [2] of the planet

    But, they are “all in this together” because doing evil [3] is their racket

    They have destroyed countries and the world’s economies too

    They have slaughtered millions in illegal wars; this diabolical crew

    They have fancy titles to their names and some are called “right honorable”

    Murderers, torturers, child killers, [4] perverts,[5] and all of them abominable

    They dictate to the ordinary people, who voted some of them into public office

    If there was a functioning “justice system” they would be arrested without notice

    But, when the system is corrupt, and in the hands of the dishonest, and the depraved

    The “rule of law” are just words that are parroted, by those that are villains and knaves

    Their helpers and promoters of their propaganda, are big tech, and the corrupt media [6]

    They cover-up their atrocities, and censor[7] and punish anyone, that exposes [8] any stigma

    Will there ever be a return to freedom, ethics, principles, peace, and morality?

    Because: This is a world of corruption, and the criminals are connected in solidarity

    “When exposing a crime is treated as committing a crime , you are being ruled by criminals.” – Edward Snowden

  2. “He knows it’s just another diversion promoted by the cadres of dirtbags who use race and identity politics to conceal their role in the ongoing class war.”

    Exactly. And get this straight. This cuts both ways. Both racism and anti-racism, wokeness and anti-wokeness, are used to conceal the class war. Both are a diversion.

  3. Putin’s comments and desires are nothing more than fluff. “I want everyone to have a job and a house and free healthcare”. That’s a fine ideal, and a great way to brand himself. But the reality of our situation is far more complex. What we need is a system that can change to a new system with as little friction as possible.
    In the American Republic, we designed a system that ensured power moved between parties, special interests and hereditary political clans with as little friction as possible. It faltered once majorly with the Civil War, and seems to have faltered again with Trump. But the problem of changing power within a system I think humanity can consider a tractable and even trivial one at this point, outside the non-Democratic/Republic-style countries around the world (is the US among them? I wonder).
    The next problem occurs when the system itself no longer transfers power within it cleanly and with stability. One is not trying to design a system wherein power can be transferred among different clans and interest groups, but rather one is trying to design a system that can change to a new system entirely. This is a “Tier-2” transfer of power problem, and with nuclear weapons, it is absolutely essential that we solve this problem.
    Are we smart enough? Forward thinking enough? Detached enough? Doesn’t look like it. Until such a day when we can design a system that can expire and be replaced with a new system entirely when the old system has run its course, the best course of action is to have multiple competitive systems that act as points of stability on the world stage. Should one fail, as the Soviet Union did, the world will not fail. The Russians can create a new government while being buttressed by the rest of the world’s erstwhile stability. (The problems of the transfer between the Soviet system and the Russian Federation highlight the fact that we still do not know how to transfer power between systems cleanly and with as little friction as possible, though Russia did regroup without something as catastrophic as nuclear war, which was promising).
    This is the primary peril of globalism or world government. Entangling all systems together without solving the Tier-2 transfer of power problem could exacerbate the problems of an eventual collapse of the world government. Were we to become too entangled politically and economically, the eventual collapse of the World government could be catastrophic and even world-ending. Consider how the US props up the rest of the world now – compare what happened to everybody’s economy when the US taxpayers defaulted on their mortgage payments! Consider the trade imbalances with China et al.
    Putin can bloviate about providing every Russian with a job and whatever else will pump up his female voting percentages and brand across the world, but he and others should consider this problem as the most serious one. It is one which Russia had personal experience with and the best critique of globalism I know of aside from the wealth concentration problems. Preserving the diversity of nation states is very important to ensure that when one fails, there are no major shocks to the system.
    I don’t see a way out other than genetic engineering which shifts the median IQ of the world population 60 points to the right.

    Sure, because the only thing that can bring reasonable prosperity back is a reversion to small town free enterprise, and regional policies that support them.

    Putin’s error is exposed by his own words, as:

    Globalisation and domestic growth have led to strong growth in developing countries and lifted over a billion people out of poverty….

    Never accept the “globalisation” premise.

    The people were lifted out of poverty because modern machinery and production methods were able to allow them to do so on their own. This is the spread of smart work, not globalism.

    Letting the bankers take the credit also let them skim off profits they had little to do with creating.

    Decentralizing everything, including devolving the American “union” into self-ruling nations in their own right, will spread prosperity far better than anything the Davos club parasites will allow.

    For the most part Putin is right, as he knows first hand: Slapping down the plutocrats was the first best punch in the nose to the whole idea of globalism. Carry on, Vlad, and don’t waste your time talking to criminals.

  5. Rubicon says:

    Applause to both Mike Whitney, and Putin.

    In the back of some of our minds, we keep our eyes on the US Hegemony, and whether it is being slowly fractured by rising nations such as China.

    By some China now has the biggest economy surpassing the US. Isn’t it supremely ironic that China is ascending in that power?

    Had the US corporate/banking/Wall Street NOT MADE the egregious mistake with millions of jobs “offshored” – we wouldn’t be having this conversation.

    So out of pure greed that’s what the Elites did in the US. Fast forward to 2021, thanks to “Covid” we now have a group of barbarian Elites driving us forward into a state of utter poverty.

  6. RJJCDA says:

    In an article in Stock & Commodities magazine, I stressed the concept of Mass Global Productivity as the key to world-wide economic growth. And it is enhanced and made expandable due to world-wide communications. Information is the engine that drives it all, and now peasants in far-flung lands can stand on the shoulders of giants and contribute their enhancements to knowledge.

  7. Glad to see Putin and Xi on the same page. I firmly hope they destroy America — especially its white non-college-degree holders along with its negroes and Jews. This unholy trinity is turning the USA into a 3rd world threat to humanity, expressed as the Republican Party.

    Its voters are white non-diploma holders, it’s golden calf is the violent negro who will not vote for it (this africanization best expressed in Trump and 4chan users), in service of its ultimate master: Israel.

    IF the above comment by BHObama is really him … he is arguing that we should hold the course of American exceptionalism and dominance. I personally, after 70 years of hearing how “we should tell the world that only we matter” and expect them to ignore their own needs and aspirations is why China (in particular) is on the rise and the ‘myth of America’ is crashing. The recent rebellion among people sick of the way things are heading (typified by the so-called tRUMP diversion) should serve as a wake up call that something is horribly wrong.

    It wasn’t tRUMP that was the problem nor was his idiocy a solution. It is the results of years of flagrant propaganda that created a nation that considers itself exceptional. We are … exceptionally selfish and war like.

    “He merely supports a more regulated and benign form of Capitalism that veers from the “scorched earth” model backed by powerful members of the WEF and other elitist organizations.”

    Just name the friggin’ Jew! We don’t have capitalism or anything close to it. What we have is Judaic Usurous Capitalist Exploitation. Holding up FDR, the 33 degree Sottish Rite Kabbalist Freemason, who loaded his cabinet with goy hating Communist-Zionist jews, is absurd. Roosevelt seized the peoples gold, brought war and Jewish Capitalistic exploitation, not any economic bill of rights. Negative real interest rates, financial repression and Fed control of money were his legacy, while stupid goyim living in the US were stripped of wealth. Roosevelt would have loved WEF, he was one of them.

    The vampire jews who are sucking the life out of the US have been doing so for over a century, and they are the same ones who sucked the life out of Imperial Russia. These vampire jews destroyed Europe in two world wars, one of which FDR started, the other his cousin Theodore played an important role in instigating. FDR and his tribe of jews are also almost solely responsible for saving Stalin, the torturer of Russia, from defeat with Lend Lease. FDR sold out all of Eastern Europe to the vampire jew.

    Putin knows that these vampires want to suck the blood out of Russia too, and he is doing all he can to prevent it, and all of Russia should be grateful. But at the same time Putin is walking a tightrope, playing along with the plandemic and kowtowing to Israel, the vampire vortex.

    @Barack Hussein Obama

    Consider how the US props up the rest of the world now – compare what happened to everybody’s economy when the US taxpayers defaulted on their mortgage payments!

    The US “props up” absolutely nothing (in fact, it is an enormous hole in the ground), Bad things happened not when the “US taxpayers defaulted on their mortgage payments” but when the government-bank buddy-buddy-handy-rubby system had pushed unsutainable debt onto the populace in order to “help” (a lot of the “helped” people were DA BLAXX btw who now clamor for “reparations” yet again, which ain’t gonna come). Then the banks proceeded to tell to themselves and idiot customers that these debts could be relied on to be paid back, on time and they could maybe get more interest & lending mileage out of that idea. Sure thing! The whole Icelandic banking system was blown out. Back to fishing then, bankers. Bushbama TARPed this over pretty quickly, as did the European Central Bank. We have infinite “money” rather than actual money.

    What we need is a system that can change to a new system with as little friction as possible.

    That thing doesn’t exist. Every complex society in history has eventually collapsed and had to be regrown from a new basis. Trying to “design a system” is self-defeating.

    Once again we see how Putin offers no alternative to the globalist technocracy, nor does he have any intention of offering one. That’s exactly the system he supports and always has ardently yearned to become part of, which is why to this day he’s trying to suck up to the Cool Kids.

    How’s this any different from injecting people with an alleged New and Improved Kinder Gentler gene-engineering agent as a substitute for an allegedly deadly virus? That’s how I now view any and all calls to “reform” globalization, the only difference being that globalization truly is the ultimate pandemic lethal to all humanity and the Earth.

    I’m sure that Putin sees the dangers inherent in the collapse of the world’s largest economy, which has been unfolding in slow motion for the entirety of this new millennium. It’s been accompanied by compensatory military overreach and great dysfunction of the social order and the national psyche. He doesn’t see it as an opportunity or a cause to gloat. If the US crumbles like Rome did back in the 4th century, it has plans to take the rest of the world with it.

    Nearly all those billion were in China. In most of the rest of the world Free Market Absolutist neo-liberal capitalism ensured that people went backwards, particularly when you take indebtedness into account.

    To be exact, 0.8 billion out of those 1 billion were in China while the other 0.2 billion were in commodity-producing countries whose natural resources were exported to China.

  29. I’ll leave it to you, gentle reader, to figure out who wrote the following nearly a century ago, but it’s not like we haven’t had similar developments of political and social degredation by unfettered commercial interests commented upon from what many now might consider an unusual perspective:

    The first and most fatal result brought about in this way was the weakening of the agricultural classes, whose decline was proportionate to the increase in the proletariat of the urban areas, until finally the equilibrium was completely upset.

    The big barrier dividing rich and poor now became apparent. Luxury and poverty lived so close to each other that the consequences were bound to be deplorable. Want and frequent unemployment began to play havoc with the people and left discontent and embitterment behind them. The result of this was to divide the population into political classes. Discontent increased in spite of commercial prosperity. Matters finally reached that stage which brought about the general conviction that ‘things cannot go on as they are’, although no one seemed able to visualize what was really going to happen.

    These were typical and visible signs of the depths which the prevailing discontent had reached. Far worse than these, however, were other consequences which became apparent as a result of the industrialization of the nation.

    In proportion to the extent that commerce assumed definite control of the State, money became more and more of a God whom all had to serve and bow down to. Heavenly Gods became more and more old-fashioned and were laid away in the corners to make room for the worship of mammon. And thus began a period of utter degeneration which became specially pernicious because it set in at a time when the nation was more than ever in need of an exalted idea, for a critical hour was threatening.

    [MORE]

    Germany should have been prepared to protect with the sword her efforts to win her own daily bread in a peaceful way.

    Unfortunately, the predominance of money received support and sanction in the very quarter which ought to have been opposed to it. His Majesty, the Kaiser, made a mistake when he raised representatives of the new finance capital to the ranks of the nobility. Admittedly, it may be offered as an excuse that even Bismarck failed to realize the threatening danger in this respect. In practice, however, all ideal virtues became secondary considerations to those of money, for it was clear that having once taken this road, the nobility of the sword would very soon rank second to that of finance.

    Financial operations succeed easier than war operations. Hence it was no longer any great attraction for a true hero or even a statesman to be brought into touch with the nearest Jew banker. Real merit was not interested in receiving cheap decorations and therefore declined them with thanks. But from the standpoint of good breeding such a development was deeply regrettable. The nobility began to lose more and more of the racial qualities that were a condition of its very existence, with the result that in many cases the term ‘plebeian’ would have been more appropriate.

    A serious state of economic disruption was being brought about by the slow elimination of the personal control of vested interests and the gradual transference of the whole economic structure into the hands of joint stock companies.

    In this way labour became degraded into an object of speculation in the hands of unscrupulous exploiters.

    The de-personalization of property ownership increased on a vast scale. Financial exchange circles began to triumph and made slow but sure progress in assuming control of the whole of national life.

    Before the War the internationalization of the German economic structure had already begun by the roundabout way of share issues. It is true that a section of the German industrialists made a determined attempt to avert the danger, but in the end they gave way before the united attacks of money-grabbing capitalism, which was assisted in this fight by its faithful henchmen in the Marxist movement.

    The persistent war against German ‘heavy industries’ was the visible start of the internationalization of German economic life as envisaged by the Marxists. This, however, could only be brought to a successful conclusion by the victory which Marxism was able to gain in the Revolution. As I write these words, success is attending the general attack on the German State Railways which are now to be turned over to international capitalists. Thus ‘International Social-Democracy’ has once again attained one of its main objectives.

    The best evidence of how far this ‘commercialization’ of the German nation was able to go can be plainly seen in the fact that when the War was over one of the leading captains of German industry and commerce gave it as his opinion that commerce as such was the only force which could put Germany on its feet again.

    Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.

    References to continuity with Putin’s previous speeches confirms what I think is salient, now that the foreign and domestic anti-Trump alignment succeeded in getting rid of him it’s back to business.

    As I predicted, the payoffs to the principals, including Russia, have come fast (e.g. Nord Stream II) with much more to follow.

    You will note that all of the foreign-meddling histrionics have been memory-holed following “the most secure election ever!”

    Putin’ speech is anodyne. As were his earlier similar thoughts. I bet he’s been saying this since Hillary was in Moscow with her Reset Button, peddling the national interest for some money into her foundation. I don’t begrudge Putin in the least but it’s really for domestic consumption.

    Here’s what I think is salient in this exceedingly wide subject:

    CCP China’s Leninist/Fascist model is like a wet dream for Western elites.

    Every Capitalist seeks to neutralize his need to compete, if he can. Financialization, and what are playfully referred to as Free Trade Agreements — actually investment/market access agreements — means global capital is indifferent to particular winners and losers. It just shifts from the latter to the former.

    You’d be forgiven for thinking it not possible but the appeal of CCP China’s system of maintaining power is even more appealing. The same problem has bedeviled elites — how difficult it is to have to achieve that Consent of the Governed thingie through a free press, free and fair elections, and an honest connection between election promises and programmatic action.

    Say what you will about Trump, he won (twice) the old-fashioned way. Give the devils their due, the Ruling Class rightly concluded that they couldn’t compete so the bloom was entirely off the ruse in their 2020 do-over of 2016.

    The globalists, including the American contingent, continue to apply more force (e.g. surveillance; repression; threats) in the hopes the American nation will break and submit. The ineluctable follow-on to what for all intents and purposes was a coup not an (American) election.

    Don’t mistake my comment for despair. Yes, we’ve got some hard days ahead that could and should have been avoided for the American Project. But I’d rather be playing our hand — constitutionally guaranteed liberties; free and fair elections; federalism — than theirs.

    The premise that Putin is not the dangerous evil that the US Military Industrial Complex makes him out to be, is certainly valid. He is trying to carve out a profitable role for Russia in the future, that depends on participation in Western economies. Germany is on board with that, but not the USA.

    But, like claiming Trump is a populist, there is a certain naivety in suggesting Putin is an advocate for the common man. I agree with all his words, which fall on deaf ears in the West, but like Trump, Putin takes care of himself first. Trump sought to destroy universal health care and was able to pass another tax cut for the rich, designed by the Aynn Rand nutcase Paul Ryan.

    Still it should be recognized that when Clinton and Larry Summers bamboozled Russia into reorganizing their society into a dozen Oligarchs, the average Russian suffered greatly, which ultimately led to Yeltsin resigning in tears and handing the reins of Government over to Putin. Under Putin the average Russian income doubled.

    Meanwhile, the USA is doing its best to reignite the cold war. Given our engineered reliance on Chinese goods today, this doesn’t make a lot of sense. These Putin speeches make a lot of sense yet contradict the current economic structure of Russia and China today, not just the West.

    For those of us in the West taxing the rich is a partial solution to designing a sustainable economy, which promotes the general welfare, as declared in our constitution. This is an issue which only Sanders, Warren and a fresh delegation of progressive representatives support today. They are still a minority.

    My idea of an alternative certainly would mean the abolition of modern globalist technocracy, whether or not that means “the exact opposite”.

    But the notion of “reforming” globalization and central banks, so that there can be “reformed” health care and educational systems, and so that “other values” can exist at all under this rubric, has been self-evidently insane since the 1990s. It’s the same rehashed liberal garbage which long has nauseated any true anti-globalist and anti-imperialist.

    This is especially true after what’s happened over the past year with the Covid scam, the stolen election and the radical escalation of police statism and censorship. The globalists and technocrats and their supporters have made it overt, explicit, crystal clear that they are aggressive totalitarians that absolutely will not tolerate the existence of any other way of living, and that they cannot co-exist on the same planet – politically, socially, culturally, spiritually or in the most literal physical sense – with anyone who insists on any other way of living.

    So that’s the reality from which I regard any and all calls for reform of the unreformable. Yes, I get that Putin is supposed to be playing chess in 111 dimensions by now (much like the way Trump was supposed to be playing until the end when it became undeniable that he was never playing at all).

    But some people might think that his conservative leanings make him more “free market” than he really is.

    Putin does not worship the market or the people who are able to exploit the system to their own advantage. Remember, in order to put Russia back on the right track, Putin had to reign in the oligarchs who had split up the country’s wealth under Yeltsin leaving the economy in dire straits.

    This is the lesson that Putin has for us all: If you can’t reign in the Bill Gates, George Soros and other cutthroat oligarchs who want to own and control everything, than you are not going to have a free and prosperous society.

  52. The elites know exactly what they are doing and their program is depopulation. They buy into a Malthusian view on a variety of levels. After all, increases in their personal wealth and power are somewhat moot at this point. Instead they collectively dwell at the apex of Maslow’s hierarchy and have adopted a messianic view of themselves.

    The tools they use are promotion of homosexuality (removing a portion of the population as breeders); feminism (removing portions of both the male and female population as breeders or at least delaying the onset of breeding); transgenderism (removing another, although for now tiny, proportion as breeders); COVID vaccines that disrupt placenta formation for a portion of those who have managed to avoid sexual deviancy; reducing economic opportunities that will further suppress birthrates among those otherwise unafflicted; relying on the despair that diminishing economic opportunities engenders leading to suicides or substance abuse (and a diminished likelihood of robust reproduction or child rearing).

    All of this arises from a long and vigorously-promoted program of secular humanism and moral relativism replacing the more concrete moral strictures inherent in traditional Christianity.

    This long and winding road finally brings us to the Great Reset of Soros, Gates, et al. And deaths arising from diversity-induced clashes are a welcome bonus; indeed their long-promoted “greatest strength.”

I’m not saying there isn’t a set of symptoms (and that’s the CDC definition) that define Covid19.

Why is MSM dedicating 50 minutes of every hour to a set of symptoms we have all lived with our entire life? I’ll answer my own question. Remember 911 and the news coverage then?

    I don’t agree with this. Governmental systems are a combination of intelligent design and evolution. The American system for instance was remarkably similar to the British system (bicameral legislature, independent courts, executive branch, etc). But the founders also tweaked it for our geographical and cultural peculiarities. I think good systems are a mixture of design and inheritance.
    Can we design a system that creates systems? That is the next step. All these nukes + instability make me worried. I don’t see a way out of this unless we become much more intelligent.

    COVID-19 was a brilliant tactic used by the world oligarchs to facilitate “the great reset”.
    Trump was hated by all world oligarchs because he was an impediment in their “great reset” scheme. Putting “America First” had to be destroyed, hence, the COVID scam was implemented.
    Trump had to be defeated–the corrupt election process was the solution, being bared for all to see. It didn’t make any difference because the courts refused to rule on cases brought before them.
    What could not be done by government fiat on an individual government basis was repackaged as a worldwide “health crisis” with heavy hitters like bill gates, fauci, the CDC and WHO leading the charge.
    The “scamdemic” could still fail, there being a considerable amount of “pushback” to the draconian “lockdowns” and poisonous DNA-changing “vaccines” that are being pushed on the world population.
    The best thing to occur now, would be the COVID scamdemic to just fizzle out. In the USA, some states are rejecting the “health mandates”.

    Why hasn’t he, or any major leader, stood up to the ‘science’ and rebuked the world wide reaction to this obvious psy-op?

    Indeed, a very good question.

    Several African leaders have called BS on the whole Corona Chan thing, the President of Tanzania for one (as I recall). In some respects, it might be easier for Africans to see through the “deadly virus” narrative simply because (for the most part) they’ve not been ravaged by the Corona Chan “pandemic” (possibly because of widespread prophylactic use of HydroxyChloroquine for Malaria).

    BUT getting back to the question as to why Russia (and China) appear to have gone along with the Corona Chan nonsense – perhaps they initially did, but have gradually come to realise the truth of what’s really going down. If so, how to weather the storm?

    One response, knowing full-well that Corona Chan is a (relatively) toothless tiger, might be to produce your own vaccines, simply in order to displace and limit the penetration into your population of poisonous experimental “vaccines” of diabolic purpose sponsored by the eugenic Gates Foundation.

    And, possibly, to preemptively provide alternatives to the American “vaccines” to various other countries around the world.

    Speculation, I know.

    But I’d wager that, in the coming years, given the current pressure to get “vaccinated”, there’s going to be an awful lot of people around the world thankful that they had an alternative to Pfizer and Moderna’s “vaccines”.

    And of course the alternative I propose is the only one possible – unless humanity wants to perish, all must reject and resist these with all our strength, toward the complete abolition of the institutions and ideology that drive these.

    Well, if you lack the imagination to do so, let me tell you “exact opposite of globalist technocracy” would be living in caves again.

    Globalism and technocracy, in spite of system propaganda which attempts to extend back in time a fraudulent pedigree, are modern phenomena. The vast majority of civilizations and societies did not live under their dominion. Might I suggest a history book?

    You can’t put the genie of technical development back into the bottle again,

    I’m afraid the limits of the Earth and its ecology will insist, just as they always do for any berserk infestation destroying itself and everything around it. No infestation ever has been as berserk and all-consuming, all-destroying as the globalized economic-imperial system.

    The architects of the “Great Reset” understand this, and their plan, now fully launched with the Covid assault, is to use the time and resources available to build the most total slave state ever, so that they can sustain their own power and mode of living while the extreme-energy civilization collapses.

    Yes, the preponderance of designed propaganda is all over the official news, isn’t it.

    Funny that most people can’t see it, even those with “high IQs”. That is because High IQ is only beneficial for imagined space-time logic – math, scientists, engineers, etc. It takes a different ability to understand someone is lying to you and there is a social/economic plan afoot.

    Edward Snowden and Julian Assange have warned us, alas to no avail. As the truth would be too horrible to digest, people eagerly turn a blind eye. Mr Assange, whoze plight was prepared in Sweden, is perishing in prison, whereas the woman that lied about what happened in her bedroom is enjoying, anyway in the Swedish media (social as well), victim status. Even though we live in a time/era when our access to information is greater than ever, most people prefer staying ignorant.

  65. Go back to the London Conference 1953 and see how The West rigged export surpluses in West Germany’s favour together with 66.2% Debt Reduction and limits on repayments to permit export surpluses.

    This deal alone guaranteed Trade Deficits in UK and USA and a violation of IMF and GATT rules on persistent trade surpluses. Look how Germany had an undervalued D-mark made convertible in 1957 and not until 1972 did USA try to reverse it with a Forced Revaluation of D-Mark. That is when the Werner Plan put the EEC on course for a Single Currency. – which 1991 Germany locked in at an undervalued rate against D-Mark thus gaining persistent surpluses when Unification should have meant trade deficits.

    Distortions of World Trade to serve Western geopolitical interests led directly to higher inflation in USA and UK which required OPEC to recycle surpluses through Western Banks into Second World economies. The distortions are what skewed global trade and currency crises for 50 years.

    Globalisation was simply a means of exploiting cheap labour and welfare standards to FINANCIALISE the economic system and facilitate Unbalanced Budgets in The West consistently and on an upward trend.

    China has simply exploited The West and accessed technology and manufacturing capacity to render The West a non-industrial society of paper-shufflers and transaction-traders wholly dependent on China for physical goods

Putin is pushing for a return to the heavily-regulated “Heyday” of 20th Century capitalism, when workers’ wages were still on the rise, when college tuition and health care were still affordable, and when the American Dream was still within reach of the average guy.” I honestly believe that the main reason the American dream was within reach of the average guy in the aftermath of WWII was because the elite were afraid of the veterans who understood what humans are capable of during occasions of mass insanity. As veterans of Viet Nam were reviled rather than revered, they were not able to maintain that respect born of fear and the broken unions, courtesy of Reagan, were the result.

    In Syria, they are stealing 140,000 barrels-day. That is a Trump legacy. But Bidet is doubling down. They now have 11 bases in Iraqi Kurdistan-North Syria province. They seem to want to create a de facto country in North Syria.
    They are also focusing on Thailand and Myanmar. This is fundamentally ‘If we can’t have it, we destroy it.’ And a f#ck you to China.

    Indeed… The anniversary of the invasion of libya recently passed. Putin was very upset by what was done – which is why they stepped in to help Syria. Libya had the highest standard of living in Africa – the real reason it was invaded is because Gaddafi had been influencing African leaders to switch Africa to a gold standard and to price all African commodities in a new African currency. That would have pushed out France and the US economic influence over Africa. So for that he had to die – and now Libya is among the worst places in Africa. But France reaped what it sowed. Refugees on top of refugees using Libya as their spring board.

    Europeans should thank Putin because the refugee problem could be even worse from Syria right now. But they have themselves to blame anyway.

    Under the Biden/Harris/Pelosi/Schumer/Warren/Sanders/AOC regime, I wouldn’t be so sure about no black reparations. It may or may not come in the form of direct payments, although the movement is growing and democrat legislators are for it, but there are other means as well.

    Wayfinding Academy, a community college in Oregon, is offering free tuition to all black and Native American Students (‘Red State,’ 2-21-21), but not to whites. Other woke colleges are considering adopting this racist policy, if they haven’t already.

    The democrats keep chipping away at so-called “White Privilege” to the point where we racist deplorables have become second class citizens. The democrats push for more reparations are unlikely to be stopped as long as they’re in the majority. Many republicans are for them too. Remember Trump’s proposed “Platinum Plan.”

    The Russians don’t seem to have such destructive racial problems under Mr. Putin, where White Russians are in control and blacks are less than 1 percent of the population. They will win in the end as long as they have strong intelligent leaders.

    The “Golden Age” of large numbers of people being pulled out of poverty had a lot to do with the fact that machines could only do so much. There had to be people to oil them, keep an eye on them, continually repair them, and continually feed them. Production could be expanded due to the increased income of the workers purchasing what they produced. When an industry matured and actually started removing employees due to increased automation or efficiency of the process, new industries sprang up to take advantage of the new possibilities.

    Now any new idea can be automated almost overnight. So even though there are new ideas and products, they immediately start out with 100 times fewer workers than a similar case 100 years ago.

    There just aren’t that many new products or ideas that can generate the type of employment needed to keep the millions of people in secure jobs. There are millions of things people can do. However none of those things make any economic sense in a profit and loss world. They would only make sense if the economy would mimic that old joke about the day shift digging a hole and the night shift filling it in to keep everybody employed.

Putin’s got a huge target on his back and they want to dismember him and his Nation.

    The Ukrainian coup, belligerent NATO attacks, massive investment in clandestine media control in Russia (Max Blumenthal article), sanctions, Syria, the neocons are circling Russia and getting ready to strike and Putin is going to this Davos dufus derby talking about stagnant US wages. There’s a deafening lack of focus here.

    The whole point with Russia, in case some might have missed it, is that the Empire sees the need to control Russia as an existential priority. Not just to eliminate it as a threat but because they know that if China has free access to Russia’s natural resources, the Empire is finished.

People are not equal and so their life outcomes won’t be either.

    And while we fought over the delusions
    of communism and capitalism – it grew,
    It was industrialism that always united the two,
    Now we pump oil from the earth,
    And mine fossil fertilizer to give us birth,
    As Bob Dylan said, “None of them along the line
    know what any of it’s worth”,
    Fossil carbon is burned, and metal is turned,
    just as in England in the 18th century,
    We continue with our entropy,

    This basic technology,
    Is still our philosophy,
    Not communism or capitalism,
    This technology so noble,
    Even built Chernobyl,
    Fossil carbon is burned,
    And metal is turned,
    This addiction now to oil,
    Takes us more to foreign soil,
    This world industrialism,
    Is a new colonialism,
    That can only lead to schism,
    Strategic minerals outside our boundaries,
    Lead o geopohtical quandaries,
    Yet we go on squandering

    What we should be monitoring,
    Fossil carbon is burned and metal is turned,
    Giving more power to the industrialists- we call it free trade,
    Only magnifies mistakes we’ve already made,
    China now rips coal from the ground as fast as it can;
    Mexico pumps oil to ship to Japan,
    The rest of Asia and South America have the same plan,
    It ain’t communism or capitalism – its industrialism,
    It builds freeways for our cars,
    And computers for our wars,
    General Eisenhower’s military industrial complex,
    Remains our Frankenstein – our Tyrannosaurus Rex,
    Those who would say we’re in a post industrial society,
    Should be tested for sobriety,
    Or at least show a little more piety,

    Sorry but you’re wrong. The US Deep State views Russia (as well as China) as ‘existential threats’ because they possess nuclear weapons that could destroy the USA. In an ideal world, the US Deep State would like the USA Empire to have an exclusive monopoly on nuclear weapons while preventing other geopolitical rivals from acquiring nuclear weapons. That is exactly what happened at the end of WWII when Truman decided to drop two atomic bombs on Japan to intimidate Stalin who frantically embarked on a nuclear weapons program.

    What the Yanks wants to do is to ‘defang’ the Russian bear so they no longer have to fear Russian nukes, without which Russia would no longer pose an ‘existential threat’ to the USA. The Yanks could then do anything, such as bomb any country they want and pretty much rule the world, FOREVER.

    Don’t be fooled by Putin & Co speeches to the West.
    Don’t be fooled either by them using terms like “our partners” and such.
    Russian leadership got a rude awaking after Yeltsin: Putin is quite aware of what GloboSorosaNATO is trying to do. He is a former KGB officer posted to East Germany and knows quite a lot about West/NATO mindset.

    People – posters, bloggers, etc – who expect Putin, Lavrov et. al. to announce their intentions to the world, or waste time on war of words with the West, don’t know much about Russian national character (…I know just a little more than many….). Don’t listen to what they say: watch what they do, if you can see it thru the fog they throw up.

    The only fly in the ointment is Putin himself: he is a strong, smart, patriotic Russian leader who knows exactly what GloboSorosaNATO has in mind for Russia. And he has done a magnificent job towards blocking NATO’s plans to the extent possible. But he will neither be President nor be alive forever. What then? That is Russia’s fundamental weakness, and I have no idea what their post-Putin leadership is going to do.

    Chinese have solved that problem*: they have a fault-tolerant leadership system which does not depend on a particular brilliant leader. Various colorless bureaucrats are selected as leader, but the system runs the country behind the scenes. Xi Jinping can have a heart attack and die tomorrow, and nothing will change in China. If Putin dies tomorrow, Russia will be upended: like when Yeltsin was “elected”.

    Because of Ron Unz’s website, I finally in old age started reading Mein Kampf.

    So Hitler analyzes German propaganda vs Allied propaganda: http://mondopolitico.com/library/meinkampf/v1c6.htm

    The function of propaganda is, for example, not to weigh and ponder the rights of different people, but exclusively to emphasize the one right which it has set out to argue for. Its task is not to make an objective study of the truth, in so far as it favors the enemy, and then set it before the masses with academic fairness; its task is to serve our own right, always and unflinchingly.

    It was absolutely wrong to discuss war-guilt from the standpoint that Germany alone could not be held responsible for the outbreak of the catastrophe; it would have been correct to load every bit of the blame on the shoulders of the enemy, even if this had not really corresponded to the true facts, as it actually did.

    And what was the consequence of this half-heartedness?

    The broad mass of a nation does not consist of diplomats, or even professors of political law, or even individuals capable of forming a rational opinion; it consists of plain mortals, wavering and inclined to doubt and uncertainty. As soon as our own propaganda admits so much as a glimmer of right on the other side, the foundation for doubt in our own right has been laid. The masses are then in no position to distinguish where foreign injustice ends and our own begins. In such a case they become uncertain and suspicious, especially if the enemy refrains from going in for the same nonsense, but unloads every bit of blame on his adversary. Isn’t it perfectly understandable that the whole country ends up by lending more credence to enemy propaganda, which is more unified and coherent, than to its own? And particularly a people that suffers from the mania of objectivity as much as the Germans. For, after all this, everyone will take the greatest pains to avoid doing the enemy any injustice, even at the peril of seriously besmirching and even destroying his own people and country.

    Now it is entirely unlikely that a KGB agent cum President of Russia is ignorant of matters relating to propaganda.

    Isn’t it perfectly understandable that the whole country ends up by lending more credence to enemy propaganda, which is more unified and coherent, than to its own?

Unrestrained capitalism has lifted the majority of the worlds inhabitants from abject poverty & sustenance living. All the while the government cronyists & corporatists have attempted to force humanity back into a subservient life. Government is the enemy of humanity but has somehow convinced most humans it is its savior. Government is malevolent not benevolent. If Putin can change that he would be all that & a bag of chips.

His classes are these of a materialist model which is founded upon economics. He only argues against an excess materialist society in the sense of unequal division.
    That is how deep we are buried in the materialist hell. He is perhaps about worthless, a highly unequal division excess materialist society could lead to suffering, disaster and consequently revolution, an equal division based society will make people satisfied and numbed..

    It’s natural that Russians are emotionally attached to Jews. Jews in the USSR fought heroically against Nazi Germany which had no love for Slavs either but wanted to rule them. It’s obviously outdated now but Russians have more of an excuse than Yanks to struggle to accept that Apartheid Israel/Palestine has existed since 1967.

    A Palestinian in the West Bank or Gaza who was 15 in 1967 is now 70 and has lived under Jewish White Supremacy for 55 years. It’s no wonder that the Church of Woke wants to talk about magic being able to change a person’s sex and imaginary institutional non Jewish White racism within the USA (Smolletting is essential because the supply of non-Jewish White racism is woefully short of the demand).

    I concede that here’s plenty of US racism expressed by wars of aggression against countries outside the USA but that’s supported by all races within the USA and both main parties. In foreign policy, there’s only one War Party, dedicated to ruling the world, in the most aggressive country on earth. That’s nothing like the reality within the USA. Yanks don’t want to treat other Yanks like they treat disobedient foreigners and they certainly don’t want to copy Israeli Jews. [email protected]

    “I am further convinced that whenever some individual or organization constantly and consistently badmouths Putin and Russia ; these messages come from the enemies of humanity.”

    There’s a reason:

    “After all, Putin is a devout Orthodox Christian, a strong proponent of the traditional family, a self-avowed social conservative, and a hardscrabble survivor of the failed Soviet state. Who would have thought that such a man would support a program that provides a decent standard living to every member of society regardless of their circumstances?’

    The above statement shows how UTTERLY IGNORANT Westerners are of REAL Christianity, and what it means to ‘love one’s neighbor’ – even if that neighbor is not of your race and faith. It DOES NOT MEAN ONTOLOGICAL EQUALITY- that’s utter PAGANISM. Nor is Russia anymore a slave of the Jewish Marxist ideology that has POISONED THE WORLD FOR 100 YEARS. She is finding her own Ethnic Identity- her CHRISTIAN IDENTITY, once more.

    Even if Russia still needs to repent of her KGB complicity, she at least acknowledged the sins of the Bolsheviks (most of whom were Jewish to a Man) and is seeking to restore ORTHODOX RUSSIA, leaving that unclean history behind- along with its’ adherents.

    And that SCARES SH*TLESS, the Deicides and their shabbas goyim. So Be It.

    But it is that re-Christianization that will allow Russia to survive and thrive. And I pray it ‘infects’ every nation on earth, so that only that “sh*tty little country’ in the Levant is left. Because nothing unclean will enter the kingdom of Heaven, and the Deicides are utterly unclean.

    Obviously I know about the Russian nuclear arsenal, but it functions as an insurance policy against a frontal attack. The unrelenting, neocon led, constant attacks on Russia have much more direct and practical causes than the more theoretical nuclear threats it poses.

    Owning the significant Russian natural resources would make the US bullying of China, Europe, the Middle Eastern vassals all the more effective. Yeah, the official story might be nukes but the vastly more significant pay-off is the control of all the other actors. The proof is the fact that the neocons are absolutely in a frenzy about destroying Russia, and yet nuclear stuff never even comes up.

    And if you wanted to neutralize a threat, you don’t make a frontal attack on it, you would be better served to befriend the country and create better ties than to try to overtly destroy them.

    the Zionist go into other nations and assassinate their leaders, they decide whom they want to kill all the time and do so without compunction and get away with it. they just killed Soleimani and what? nothing! incredible!

    they go into other nations poison their agriculture., sow chaos, pull of color revolutions create all manner of internal dysfunction, physical destruction, divide their people, create terrorist groups, arm them and make civil war:

    they bribe and take over international organizations, control all nations the same way while they have created solid control so that they exert impossible pressure on every nation and every human on the planet they want to….

    [MORE]

    look they surely have made the Covid pandemic created vaccines they are imposing on the globe, on everyone which vaccines by all analysis so far are pure poison, calculated to imprison humanity forever in a vise of, calculated to turn the human bodies into factories of production of internal poisons triggered from afar to do whatever they want

    is that a massive, total crime against humanity for which people are supposed to be investigated, charged and tried and jailed or executed?

    but nothing! no one is even talking about crime against humanity with the Covid vaccinations! no one is saying anything at all about Zionist crime in the world, the general behavior of Zionist all the time, every day. they exists in a state of total attack on the rest of humanity and get away with scot free. no one said a dam thing white the Zionist bribed their way to total international control of all and every global institution and exert universal power inimical to the interest of humanity as a whole

    why do the Russians have no time to develop internal structures to defend against the Zionists don’t know the quality of the people to follow Putin while those who threaten Russia are totally free, face no pressure at all to go on and on and on and on and on..as a threat to Russia!!??

    why would Putin for example leave the Zionists in such a position of threatening strength against Russia after he is gone? he knows what will happen…it is happening now while he is still alive. why does he take it now? why is he prepared to die leaving the attackers in a position of such great strength against his people and nation

    the path of the Zionist in the world is the most astounding thing I have seen in my life. we know who they are. why have we allowed them to do as they have done on the planet, to the point where they have currently jacked up the entire planet against a wall facing vaccinations that will imprison us all forever.

    so that is what they were up to then! I was wonder what they would do as capitalist ran out of gas, where they would go, which larger people they could latch onto for protection…not the Chinese for sure, and the Russians seemed onto them given that they too are Russian. now we see that they intend to use, are using modern medical and related science and technologies fabricating ways to control humanity permanently by imprisoning our bodies with vaccinations and more, from a huge pipeline of such horrific potential already lined up. and we let them get away with all of this, while we face it ourselves, as for a start we are being forced to take vaccines that are going to turn our bodies into factories for the internal production of all sorts of biological poisons

    there are lots of places and sites like this Unz Report, all full of talk while the human species is ripped to hell up by the Zionists. look at what they have planned for us. Amazing!

    Bill Gates is one amazing example of the state of things. there are lockdowns, no one can move save Bill Gates it is clear. Gates is all over the place buying up the land. He is all over the airwaves as safe and free as anyone can be, laughing heartily as all others are unhappy, saying whatever the hell he likes, pushing policies on the people we all know are going to crap the hell out of all of us physically and mentally. and we accept it!

    there is Bill Gates out in the open, totally confident he has us all, our minds so controlled we cannot but be directed by what he says, recommends, orders even. why isn’t Bill Gates in jail, under trial for crimes against humanity? incredible!

    by all that’s going on against the best interests of humanity, in which we are participating in a process of action against our own best interest, suicidal behavior, humanity appears to be done. the human future takes shape as a monumental nightmare of Zionist organized existential dystopia, a perfect horror show that they degenerate human life into, directed by their god who chose them to make a nightmare of the life he so carefully created, it took him 6 whole days before he rested on the seventh.

    Confused about Israel because the vaccine might be the inoculation for the REAL bioweapon.?

  131. Both Russians and Khazars come out of the same cultural experience: they both are Russian. represented by Putin and Netanyahu why are Khazars and Russians as different culturally as they appear to be at this point in history, given their unified origins?

    is the difference real and as solid as it appears? or is there a game going on that hides the fact of interchangeability between both of those men, and the Russian and Khazar peoples all over the world?

    at least one commentator on this thread who suggests that in fact there is indeed such interchangeability, and that Putin is not to be trusted by his words, that he too is part of the game. this commentator warns at the same time not to take Mike Whitney seriously as he leads us the wrong way relative to Putin

    Putin indeed does much to facilitate Zionist interests in the world… in Syria for one example. and a fine friendly, glowing relationship does exist between Russia’s Putin and Israel, as can easily be discerned during a visit I noted by Putin to Palestine and Israel some time ago

    In Syria Putin appears to have tied Syrian hands to prevent their own defense of self and nation against Israeli attack. there are Syrian weapons bought from Russia that can stop or mitigate Israeli air and missile attack…which weapons the Russians wont allow the Syrians to use against Israeli planes and missiles, the sole purpose for which those weapons were sought by the Syrian people in the first place

    I understand that Iran has recently completed the development of very advanced missiles of their own that can do just as well as the Russian S-300 in defense of missile and air attack. if that is indeed the case then the Russian weaponry will no longer be needed for Syrian defense

    [MORE]

    I do not generally mistrust Putin but the Khazars are Russian and that appears to mean something to Putin. By experience now that seems to be an accurate coloration and impression of the Russian presence in Syria. The Syrians therefore must be satisfied and appreciative of the protection they do get from the Russians, but at the same time must seek and avail themselves of an alternative if they can, that they have control over, that they can use to protect themselves from Israeli.. and now American as well… Air and missile attack

    it is time all humans stood stand up for all that we think and believe is right and consistent with human survival on planet earth. it is time to make sure that we are as sight as we can be and stand up open minded and prepared to compromise and cooperate in the interest of survival.

    it is time now to give no ground to evil, to stand and eliminate the evil in life and to create the ways of running human societies that produce good positive effect and continuing potential rather than the opposite of of such. Israel should not exist at all but as it has been accomplished I am willing to say “ok let it go on but not in the way it has been going!” all the people must thrash out the situation, work out a mutuality and live on, if at all possible in that space.

    and we must put an end to Zionist behavior in the world, deal with their Chosen arrogance by establishing the truth of what we have lived to this point. there are no gods like we have believed to this point. and there is no proof of Israeli Chosen nonsense. that must be forcefully and thoroughly rectified on and by the truth of life proven to this point. we also know when the bible was written, who wrote it etc. we also know that the current Jews are Russians and could not have been chosen by any god, for if and when such a choice was made they were not around, nowhere near the site of such supposed, mythical happenings

    if the original Jews were chosen as gods faves then those original people were Black people, the original Jews, who ultimately became brown mixed people, which people as Jews have been pushed to a point of extinction by the converted Russian Khazars to Judaism. there is historical truth now, relative to that whole story that pulverizes it, renders it into folklore at best, consigned to fairy tales, allowing for, indeed making essential, the full reform of all that flowed/flows from it, like all the Christian religions

    if we cannot do that and a lot more of that quality, standing up for what is right and true, acting on it by the ordinary people of the world, we wont be able to stop the Jews. it will prolly come down to a war of extinction depending on how many smarten up in time to avoid the vaccinations

    humanity could have been a long way forward had the ordinary people of the world stood up when we should have a couple of generations ago, been done already with a job always crying out to be done given the clear consequences of the evil and extinction potential it always contained.

    and so here we are facing a Zionist existential needle full of Covid vaccinations the content of which that has nothing to do with any flu virus, but is chock full of biologically altering agents that mean the end for ordinary humanity who are the targeted for these vaccines: and ultimately the end of humanity period! when one considers the full Zionist program for the world around which the vaccines are centred…a program which is emerging fully as we speak

    Most of Russia’s natural resources are mined by private companies owned by ‘Russian Oligarchs’ with ties to the West. Why should the West sanction the Kremlin if those private companies already have access to the natural resources of Russia? Why should the USA sanction Russia for building the Nord Stream II pipeline which would carry Russian natural gas to Europe? Western hostility to Putin’s Russia is predicated not on lack of Western access to Russia’s natural resources but on Putin’s buildup of Russian military might based on its nuclear arsenal, hypersonic missiles, missile defense systems and fifth-generation fighter jets.

    Russian military power is the main obstacle to the complete domination of Europe by the USA Empire. Only by ‘neutralizing’ Russian military power could the US Deep State achieve its dreams of conquering Europe which is exactly what NATO aims to do.

    2014 , Malaysian airline Mh370 ‘disappeared’ in thin air, with more than 150 Chinese nationals onboard, including many Huawei, ZTE top exe and dozens of Chinese electronic experts.
    The moment the news broke I knew it’s a FUKUS black op.

    Similarly, soon as I learned about a virus breakout in Wuhan during the heat of Trumps trade war blitzkrieg, I knew its another bioweapon attack.

    In Syria Putin appears to have tied Syrian hands to prevent their own defense of self and nation against Israeli attack.

    It seems that Putin has read your comment. 🙂

    In an official statement last week, the special envoy of the president of Russia to Syria, Alexander Lavrentiev, indicated that Moscow was rapidly losing patience with Israel over airstrikes against alleged Iranian targets on Syria soil. “Sooner or later, the cup of patience, including the Syrian government, may be overflowing, and a retaliatory strike will follow, which will accordingly lead to a new round of tension. These attacks must be stopped, they are counterproductive. We hope that the Israeli side will hear our concerns, including concerns about the possible escalation of violence in Syria.”

    Continued Israeli airstrikes on Syria are testing Moscow’s patience, Jerusalem would do well not to poke the Russian bear

    Personally, I suspect that there is more to this story. The Russians know that if they use their missiles, the West will get a lot of information about their capabilities and telemetry. The Russians prefer to keep that to themselves. For similar reasons, the Americans got excited about the Turks using F-35’s in the neighborhood of S-400’s – and they cancelled the deal.

    The attacks on Asians worldwide are not rational and not promoted by the governments of the various nations, as far as I know. It isn’t an excuse not to hold the feet of the Chinese government communists to the fire for their complicity in this attack on humanity.

    I’m no fan of the greedy Davos bunch, nor of the rising inequality across the globe.
    And this is not a defense of their actions, which are causing global financial crises.
    But Russia and Putin are no better, nor answers to those growing inequalities of the “West”.
    Russian billionaires and Aristocrats, whom Putin answers to, are just as bad as their American counterparts.

    Ditto for Chinese Billionaires.
    And Indian Billionaires.
    And so on……

    Take a look at the following chart from the World Inequality Database:
    https://wid.world/country/russian-federation/
    That inequality in Russia has exploded since 1991.
    Similar to most countries.

    The top-10 Russian billionaires are worth an estimated $180 billion.
    As per the Moscow times, “Russia’s ultra-wealthy have increased their net worth by nearly $500 million in 2020…”
    https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2020/12/01/russian-billionaires-see-500mln-windfall-in-2020-a72202

    What interests me most, is not only how the 1% are complaining more & more about their own 1% making greater strides, but how many more global billionaires are complaining of how much less they have compared to the wealthiest global billionaires.

    Meanwhile billions are living in true poverty.

    Regardless whether “free market”, “socialism” or “communism”, greed currently rules.
    And the “capitalists” (wealth-hoarders) of each of those economies are using their wealth to influence governmental & public policy to their advantage, for special-interest legislation to gain ever-more wealth.

    I firmly believe in the right to make money, and in reaping the rewards of hard work & true innovation, but there are limits.
    Even the “Father of Laissez-faire economics”, Adam Smith, warned of the consequences of unfettered wealth hoarding.

    “Capitalists” themselves are destroying capitalism.

    Every economy requires spending, to continue to thrive & grow.
    The more a few have & hoard, the less the more have to spend, to keep an economy healthy.
    We are currently witnessing the consequences of that hoarding.
    Thus the massively increasing rises of the massive Everything Bubbles, which will certainly eventually pop.

    A pandemic not often talked about is the seeming global human insecurities I see continuing to grow.
    Humans unable to face their own mortality, or their own self-worth, minus massive wealth.

    what I have been claiming over the last 2 days is that the ordinary people must rise and remedy the capitalist exploitation of the planet by taking over and ending capitalism. there is no other answer for the people but to rise and end the existing system, creating at the same time a system to take care of the needs of the people, themselves as they go, fearlessly, confidently by doing what they know, plus trial and error and correction as they go..as we go!

    the capitalist are aware of this and as their system fails they have long decide what they will do to ensure they keep the social power by full attack on the people to ensure they are forced into a state of existence that would imprison them forever..

    that is precisely why we have Covid 19, and vaccinations that are going to reorganize our DNA in ways that make us prisoners forever to the capitalist criminals

    the responsibility for the well being of the people lies nowhere else but within the general purview and existential interest of ordinary working folk…and nowhere else! if we do not rise and solve our existential problem by taking over society we are toast, cannon fodder for Brave New World

    Marx had that totally right but others knew too. I don’t think that it was Marx’s intent to solve the situation in the interest of ordinary people. he was instead looking for ways to help fix the capitalist in place.

    but that is not the issue right now. our time has run out…ordinary people, the so-called Deplorables! we must get to it out in the streets. we have no choice! it is take over of become sacrifice to the the Great Reset. our due from the Reset will be serious depopulation: and is already the application of biological warfare on us to imprison us in our own bodies

    its no secret anymore. its out in the open now what they are going to do to us. are we going to sit down and take it, dutifully and easily accepting the vaccinations and all the lies, helping to imprison ourselves?

Everyone must have access to an effective system of lifelong education, which is absolutely indispensable now and which will allow people to develop, make a career and receive a decent pension and social benefits upon retirement.

    Third, people must be confident that they will receive high-quality and effective medical care whenever necessary, and that the national healthcare system will guarantee access to modern medical services.

    I have never ever heard any Black people anywhere and from everywhere speak like that there… “Gubbernint”

    that is not what we do to language…any and all languages we work with. we sweeten language, give it spirt and verve. we create in the language and add to it, often making the language easier to deal with.

    all of that is is very well known about Black people everywhere. one only has to listen to the music, the songs, read the prose and verse etc., to note the Black contribution, to note the utterly ridiculous nonsense that is presented as Black language that pisses off anonymous and caused him to disrespect Black people

    that language there is not Black language, does not have anything to do with Black people directly as its creators. I ignore stuff like that. that is example of what the white racist american media created and said it was Black colloquialism, stupid and incomprehensible, representative general Black american routine ‘dotish-ness’.

    it is the white media that is dotish, fabricating nonsense and trying to pass it off as truth. pure nonsense that is! all the media had to do was to note what Black people were actually doing in the language even as they fabricated that nonsense…producing great american writers, fabulous music and songs etc.

    “In the past 30 years, in a number of developed countries, the real incomes of over half of the citizens have been stagnating, not growing.” I think the evidence is overwhelming that this is true but I think the stagnation has been going on longer. Two remarkable things have been going on since around the year 1970. China, which was one of the poorest countries in the world (and had not been a world power for centuries) began rising and some of the smarter people commented on this in the 1980’s or 90’s already. Despite President Biden mocking the idea, it is estimated China will surpass the US and become the biggest economy in the world within 5 years. The other thing that happened and this is even much more momentous than the rise of China is the collapse of western Europe and the historical world powers that led the world for many centuries prior to 1945. Yes, Europe was physically destroyed and financially broken by 1945 but that does not explain losing its leadership position in all the sciences and having the rest of its industries almost completely wiped out in the decades following the war. By the 1970’s the once great Great Britain lost most of its industries. Germany had a recovery after the war but they have lost most of their industries too. They had the three biggest chemical companies in the world and the biggest pharmaceutical companies and much more, but no longer. Italy and France also lost their industries. And replacing Europe were what had been countries or former colonies that historically were no competition for Europe. Now, Asia is the world’s economic and engineering power house where it had been a backwater with little power until recently, except for Japan which was advanced in the 1930’s already.

    I wish Putin would speak to Europeans about this and start his speech with “as a European”. The only politicians that come close to speaking the truth about the economic decline of western Europe, the creeping poverty and the destruction of these countries peoples and cultures with mass immigration making their countries unrecognizable are what the extremist left calls the “far right”. Just so you know what the “far right” is, that is anyone that still has the values Europeans had for centuries up until the 1970’s, 80’s and more recently.

    The great masses of men, though theoretically free, are seen to submit supinely to oppression and exploitation of a hundred abhorrent sorts. Have they no means of resistance? Obviously they have. The worst tyrant, even under democratic plutocracy, has but one throat to slit. The moment the majority decided to overthrow him he would be overthrown. But the majority lacks the resolution; it cannot imagine taking the risk. So it looks for leaders with the necessary courage, and when they appear it follows them slavishly, even after their courage is discovered to be mere bunkum and their altruism only a cloak for more and worse oppression’s. Thus it oscillates eternally between scoundrels or, if you would take them at their own valuation, heroes. Politics becomes the trade of playing upon its natural poltroonery(cowardice) – of scaring it half to death, and then proposing to save it. There is in it no other quality of which a practical politician, taking one day with another, may be sure. Every theoretically free people wonders at the slavishness of all the others.

    How convenient that Asia, and China in particular, is said to be the origin of this North American scourge at a time when Chinese-Anglo-American relations are strained to say the least.

    In the days preceding the emergence of the first SARS cases, American raced to the Pacific Rim to impact escalating aggressions on the Korean peninsula. Communist China-a “most favored” trading partner with America, is politically allied with several American enemies, including those said to possess weapons of mass destruction, including Iraq. Coincidental? Not likely when viewing the larger political picture involving the Ango-American oligarchy’s RMA and instigated “conflicts short of war.”

    Ultimately, “We the People” have become the greatest victims of this latest fright, and the larger political agendas it serves.

    The moment the majority decided to overthrow him he would be overthrown. But the majority lacks the resolution; it cannot imagine taking the risk.

    How can we overthrow our Judean Zion MSM gangster rulers?

    The west is under the tightest control by these gangsters. Russia, China and Iran are last large holdouts of total control by these gangsters,

    The main weapon of our gangster rulers is the Media. They use it to control us. It has worked like a gem for over a hundred years.

    The internet is weakening this weapon. Thus, the great ‘fear” of “diverse” viewpoints in our gangster MSM. Our gangster rulers are going overboard, censoring anything that might counter their brainwashing toolbox.

    To counter-act this, we have to keep pushing for a “diversity” of viewpoints. Since our rulers like the word “diversity”.

    The human mind is what makes a human “diverse” from animals. Skin color does not make us “diverse”. Animals come in all different colors, such as, a black, tan, brown, white, grey or reddish colored horse, dog, cat or fish. Thus, looking only at the looks of a person for “diversity” is treating humans like any other animal.

    What makes a human “diverse” is his/her ability to have “diverse” viewpoints. These “diverse” viewpoints are how humans created and developed our technology, science and all material things that humans created.

    “ compare what happened to everybody’s economy when the US taxpayers defaulted on their mortgage payments”

    Well what a pity that the president of the US was one Barack Obama. If the man was a true leader chosen by a truly free democratic system, he would have not bailed out the banks and the banksters without imposing on them the reintroduction of the Glass Steagall act and he would have let capitalism do its cleansing work by throwing those crooked bankers under the bus. Any governmental aid should have gone towards shoring up the fortunes of the fifteen million families who lost their homes because of the swindles of the banking community. Letting the banks go bust would have pushed down the prices of the mortgaged homes and would have given a better chance to the poor to keep their own homes. Alas, Obama was supported by the banksters of Wall Street just like his rival on the Republican side. In the race to the US presidency, Wall Street owns all the horses of the race track and cares little which horse comes ahead.

    The story is much more complex than what you’re suggesting, especially in the USA, where poor Asian immigrants tend to live in urban ghettos with high densities of Blacks and Latinos, instead of Whites.

    https://www.rt.com/usa/515524-asians-attacks-blame-white-people/
    https://www.rt.com/usa/516245-new-york-asian-attack-protest/

    Poor Asian and Latino immigrants tend to gravitate to these urban ghettos because they have the lowest cost-of-living standards compared to White suburbs where cars are the only viable means of private transportation to get to work. As most of these poor Asian and Latino immigrants don’t have cars, they rely on public transportation to get to work in their low-wage service jobs in downtown areas. That’s where the violent crimes take place near downtown areas or public transit stops.

    The Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated the already high violent crime rates which has reached epidemic proportions in the USA.

    Thanks for your comment, JWR.

    Being a bit “long in the tooth” these days, I’m already very familiar with the writing of both Eric Peters and HL Mencken. I’m guessing it’s probably been at least 15 years since I first became aware of them.

    You might also like Mencken’s “Chrestomathy”, or a collection of short quotes titled “Minority Report” [n.b _not_ the P.K. Dick novel] ,which is where I first came across the brilliant”The kind of man who wants the government to adopt and enforce his ideas is always the kind of man whose ideas are idiotic”, quote. His observations on democracy are also great, as you well know, e.g:

    “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”

    “Democracy is the art and science of running the circus from the monkey cage.”

    “Democracy is also a form of worship. It is the worship of Jackals by Jackasses.”

    “If experience teaches us anything at all, it teaches us this: that a good politician, under democracy, is quite as unthinkable as an honest burglar.”

    “Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.”

    “Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule—and both commonly succeed, and are right.”

    {” but he’s not as good when it comes to taking action. In Syria, for example, he lets Israel bomb “Iranian targets” with impunity “}

    Will you guys stop it already with your wishes of what Putin should or shouldn’t do?

    All you guys who expect Putin to do this or that in Syria, or in general fight GloboSorosaNATO everywhere in the world, need to keep the following in mind: ( I have no inside information of course, , but have no doubt Putin, Lavrov, Shoigu et.al. know this better than anybody else).

    1. Russian forces in Syria are minimal: Russia does not plan to get sucked into a major war in Syria against Israel & US & NATO.

    2. Russia accomplished its mission in Syria by preventing its destruction/dismemberment at the hands of US+Turkey+UK+France+KSA+…. by the latter’s proxy invasion: the proxies being cannibalistic ISIS headchoppers. And having a secure base for its navy in Syria.

    3. Stop and think a minute how a war against Israel (read US/NATO) would progress for Russia.
    Israel has a powerful, modern AF: Russia has a token wing of modern fighter jets there. Whatever Russian air defenses bring down in Syria, will be quickly replaced by US. NATO will find an excuse and will get involved. Russia will have great difficulty replenishing its losses there. Now it’s Russia against the whole of NATO in a faraway place, where it cannot easily scale up. Russia will now face a choice: accept humiliating defeat and leave Syria or go Global Nuclear. That’s what the GloboSorosaNATO wants: for Russia to leave Syria, so it can be destroyed.

    4. GloboSorosaNATO has been trying to provoke Russia to do exactly what you guys want.
    To wit:
    a) Shootdown by Turks of a Russian Su-24 over Syrian air space.
    b) Targeted killing of 1 Russian general and 2 colonels in Syria.
    c) Targeted killing of a Russian medical group in Syria.
    d) Shootdown of a Russian intelligence airplane by Syrians – cleverly planned and engineered by Israel AF. I believe something like 20 Russian airmen were killed.

    In each case, Kremlin kept its cool.

    Russia has massive military strength, but only in its own back yard. Russia has no force projection capability like the US. And Israel has massive military strength next door to Syria.

    And it is not the job of Russian leaders to scratch the itch of people who despise Israel and want to get their jollies at the expense of Russia and Russian blood.
    As the other poster who replied to you said: ‘Putin’s thoughts are about the well-being of his country in the long run,..’

    Russian people need a long break without turmoil. Their standard of living needs to go way up.
    Russian economy needs to be become less dependent on export of hydrocarbons.
    Lots of other things.
    All of that will be thwarted if Russia gets sucked into a major war.
    That’s what GloboSorosaNATO wants.

    Putin and his group know this very well: that is why they are doing their best to avoid a major war.
    As to EU: Russia knows that sooner or later US’s influence over Europe will diminish to the point of no-influence, and with it the evil influence of UK*. Russia needs to keep good relations with continental European countries, because……… Russia is and will remain an integral part of the Eurasian land mass.

    Why should the West sanction the Kremlin if those private companies already have access to the natural resources of Russia?

    It’s more than the access to the resources they want. First of all, right now, like in the 1973 oil crisis, Russia could turn off the spigot, so that’s one reason why you want to own the people and the resources. Secondly, if you observe how the US uses its sanctioning power to bully big and medium size players, that type of thing would be a lot more effective if you don’t have competition and if you owned the whole energy process from the ground, through the political system, to the customers, which you again would control through it. Obviously, the long term control which this would give you is much more significant in order to achieve a global control strategy.

    Western hostility to Putin’s Russia is predicated not on lack of Western access to Russia’s natural resources but on Putin’s buildup of Russian military might based on its nuclear arsenal, hypersonic missiles, missile defense systems and fifth-generation fighter jets.

    First of all, as you know, the entire Russian military budget is what the US spends in a month on military. Second, the Russians have rebuilt their military to a great extent, in response to the US build-up on their borders. Even so, other than their nuclear weapons, they do not pose a strategic threat to the US beyond their own sphere of influence.

    As far as controlling the Europeans is concerned, the US already has “complete domination of Europe” they’re not trying to overthrow the Russian government, maybe risking a nuclear war, in order to achieve something they already have.

    I certainly agree that the Russian military, quite logically plays a role here, but I maintain that for the reasons I’ve listed previously, it’s not the fundamental reason for the attack on Russia. Those reasons are that control of the Russian energy resources would put China, Europe and the Middle East much more deeply under US control. And besides these logical arguments, it’s the singularly insane neocon obsession with Russia which is the biggest give-away of the whole game and motive for their plan.

    Almost but not quite there yet. Russia still has military bases in Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, as shown below:

And besides these logical arguments, it’s the singularly insane neocon obsession with Russia which is the biggest give-away of the whole game and motive for their plan.

    The US has military bases all over the Middle East which produces most of the world’s oil while Russia only has one military base in Syria. That explains why the US neocons are hostile to Russia which intervened militarily in the Syrian Civil War. That also proves my point that US antagonism to Russia is premised on countering its military power not about controlling its natural resources.

    The USA does not maintain a military presence only in countries with natural resources all over the world. Japan and South Korea, for example, don’t have any natural resources but nevertheless host US military bases which are intended to counter the military might of China, Russia and North Korea in East Asia. Same reasoning apply to NATO in Europe which is designed to counter the military might of Russia, not to control its natural resources.

    Russia made an offer to the USA regarding Assad’s ‘chemical weapons’ stockpile which Obama accepted after hesitating to attack Syria when his red lines were crossed. Furious at Russia for disrupting their plans for dismembering Syria, the US neocons then decided to stage a ‘regime-change’ operation in Ukraine, overthrowing its duly-elected President during the Maidan Coup led by John McCain and Victoria Nuland. Obama then changed course and opted for a ‘low-intensity conflict’ type of guerilla warfare by arming and supporting ‘moderate rebels’ against Assad whose regime was already on the verge of collapse when Putin decided to intervene militarily in Syria.

    Here’s an article highlighting the events of the period:

    https://tcf.org/content/report/red-line-redux-putin-tore-obamas-2013-syria-deal/

    The political vilification of Putin and Russia then followed the failure of the US neocons to achieve their geopolitical aims in Syria, which was to secure bases for the US military there. Trump was supposed to expel the Russians but opted instead to withdraw US troops from Syria which has allowed Putin to establish a military bases there while the USA has none.

    My point stands: the US neocon hostility to Russia has nothing to do with control of Russia’s natural resources but everything to do with countering Russia’s military might which allows Putin to block the US neocon plans for dominating Eastern Europe as well as the Middle East.

The Western ‘fake news’ Media exploits the ‘Yellow Peril’ syndrome in order to target Asian immigrants as their ethnic scapegoats which is designed to deflect the rising discontent amongst the native White masses against their Capitalist Overlords.

    Regarding Australia’s attempts to pin the blame for the origin of the Covid-19 virus on Wuhan, that’s clearly a hack job intended to deflect attention away from the Covid-19 pandemics ravaging the West which was caused by their own government ineptitude. International researchers have already discounted the possibility of the Covid-19 virus originating in Wuhan due to the different strains predominant in both Europe and the USA while scientific studies have proven the widespread presence of the Covid-19 virus as early as December 2019 in various parts of Europe.

    Methinks Australia wants to extort favors from China by playing the victim card even though the dominant strain of Covid-19 virus in Australia came from the USA.

All states friendly to China, like Burma, Thailand, Ethiopia etc, are under Western attack, and Chinese communities better get organised, because they are in the same situation as Jews were in in Germany c.1938.

    I think we’re just talking past each other now.

    I don’t disagree with ANY of the points you’re bringing up, I just don’t think they’re the driving force, nor do I think they alone explain the real driving force.

    Your explanations would imply the neocon-driven foreign policy was just driving around keeping their eye on everyone, when all of the sudden, someone dissed them and they got really pissed off. It’s too facile an explanation, ignores to the point of being obtuse, facts which clearly play a major role in the argument. Your refusal to concede even a principle of the argument I’m making is indicative of a more personal shortcoming.

    If control of energy resources plays a subordinate role in US foreign policy, why do you think the Obama administration declared Venezuela in 2015 “a threat to national security,” for example? (it’s rhetorical question, you don’t have to answer it)

    And another point,

    Russia made an offer to the USA regarding Assad’s ‘chemical weapons’ stockpile which Obama accepted after hesitating to attack Syria when his red lines were crossed. Furious at Russia for disrupting their plans for dismembering Syria, the US neocons then decided to stage a ‘regime-change’ operation in Ukraine, …

    again this is a horse before the cart fallacy. At the time of the Ukrainian coup, the US, as described by Victoria Nuland (https://thenewamerican.com/ukraine-unraveling-the-planned-chaos/), had been pumping billions into a regime change operation there for years. You don’t just get mad and organize a coup in 3 months.

    Again, you tend to continue making your arguments and when someone points out obvious fallacies in them, you just repeat your previous claim, as if your point had not been debunked.

    “For climate change, there are many scientific organizations that study the climate. These alphabet soup of organizations include NASA, NOAA, JMA, WMO, NSIDC, IPCC, UK Met Office, and others. Click on the names for links to their climate-related sites. There are also climate research organizations associated with universities. These are all legitimate scientific sources.

    If you have to dismiss all of these scientific organizations to reach your opinion, then you are by definition denying the science. If you have to believe that all of these organizations, and all of the climate scientists around the world, and all of the hundred thousand published research papers, and physics, are all somehow part of a global, multigenerational conspiracy to defraud the people, then you are, again, a denier by definition. 

    So if you deny all the above scientific organizations there are a lot of un-scientific web sites out there that pretend to be science. Many of these are run by lobbyists (e.g.., Climate Depot, run by a libertarian political lobbyist, CFACT), or supported by lobbyists (e.g., JoannaNova, WUWT, both of whom have received funding and otherwise substantial support by lobbying organizations like the Heartland Institute), or are actually paid by lobbyists to write Op-Eds and other blog posts that intentionally misrepresent the science.”

    I agree with all you say about America. No doubt our government and politicians on both sides of the isle are totally owned by Zionist Israel. We have now had our own “soft”(at the present)Bolshevik Revolution thrust upon us. We are becoming Bolshevik Russia, while we are told once communist Russia and China are becoming what the US once was. Nothing could be further from the truth. Putin is a dyed in the wool Leninist while Xi Jinping worships at the alter of Marx.

    Vladimir Putin: “There were such severe years of militant atheism during the Soviet period when priests were killed, churches were destroyed. But at the same time a new religion was being created — communist ideology, which is very similar to Christianity, in fact.

    “Freedom, equality, brotherhood, justice — all of this is enshrined in the Holy Scripture, it’s all there. And what about the Code of the Builders of communism? This is a sublimation, it’s really just a primitive excerpt from the Bible, nothing new was invented.”

    He also compared leader of the Bolshevik Party and of the Russian revolutions, Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov – better known as Lenin – to Christian saints.

    https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/904717/Putin-communism-christianity-Russia-Lenin-saint-bolshevik-revolution-Stalin-atheism-news

    Xi Jinping:Xi’s Marxism “with Chinese characteristics”, Huang writes, incorporates “the essence of Chinese civilization,” “an ancient civilization with a history of more than 5,000 years.” However, the article makes it clear that the starting point is Marxism, and Marxism is the filter to decide what is valid and acceptable in the Chinese culture and not vice versa

    https://bitterwinter.org/marxism-is-the-essence-of-xi-jinpings-thought/

    It is now common knowledge that Communism is in fact nothing more than Judaism. That’s not me speaking, it is Rabbi Stephen Wise – “Some call it Marxism, I call it Judaism.”
    http://esau.today/communism-is-judaism/

    Bottom line, every country in the world is signed onto this NWO, One World Government. What we have now is different leaders from different countries clamoring for a seat at the table of this NWO which will be seated in where else but: Yes – it is certain that Jerusalem will soon be the seat of the future and final World Government. The eyes of the nations will be focused on tiny Israel and her King.

    What is coming is a OWG which will be modeled on the CCP social credit system. Russia, China, and Iran are all a part of it. It’s time to quit worshiping false hero’s.

In the final analysis, it is probably more wise to evaluate everything ‘learned’, then work toward improving oneself [physically/intellectually/spiritually] while disengaging from the ‘system’. The problem here is what path to actually follow, eg.

    1. Exercise muscles (minor body component)/eat healthy/follow allopathic health practices/Study published histories, science, etc./practice prescribed religions.

    2. Relax muscles and concentrate on energy flows through sinews and connective tissues (major body component)/follow homeopathic health practices/compare what is experienced with what is published/investigate spiritual practices that produce tangible benefits.

    3. Always ask “Why am in following/doing this? Is it benefitting me in a tangible way?”.

    Let me reply by posing a similar rhetorical question: why do you think the Trump administration declared Cuba a threat to US national security? I could also add North Korea, Afghanistan, etc. to the list of countries the USA considers to be threats to US national security even though those countries don’t have natural resources such as oil that the USA covets unlike, say, Nigeria, which does have oil but doesn’t seem to pose a threat to US national security. While the USA might have a mercenary interest in Russia’s natural resources, the idea that control of those natural resources is what drives US foreign policy towards Russia is absurd because it ignores Russia’s military might which poses a threat to US national security. Just look at how the USA reacted to Russia’s sale of the S-400 MDS to Turkey which affects US national security as Turkey is a member of NATO. Again, the USA sanctioned Turkey over its purchase of the S-400 MDS from Russia not because the USA wants to control the natural resources of Turkey but because the USA wants to counter Russian military might. Suffice it to say that Russia’s abundance of natural resources is a coincidental fact that adds more icing to the cake. And that cake is Russian military might which includes its nuclear weapons, hypersonic missiles, S-400 MDS, fifth-generation fighter jets, etc. If the USA can have its own cake (military might) while eating Russia’s cake (military might), then Russia’s natural resources is just icing to the cake (additional bonus).

    The book looks back at history and argues that fiat currency itself is a conspiracy; it sees in the abolition of representative currency and the installment of fiat currency a struggle between the “banking clique” and the governments of the western nations, ending in the victory of the former. It advises the Chinese government to keep a vigilant eye on China’s currency and instate a representative currency. The book, published in 2007, also correctly described and warned[citation needed] of the various forms of derivative speculation used by Wall Street which eventually became the causes of massive margin call sell offs and stock market crash in late 2008.[citation needed]. In other writings, the author discussed the role of Goldman Sachs and other Jewish banks in selling toxic assets to foreign countries leading to the spread of the financial crisis to Europe.

NASA has already pointed this out sotto voce.

    A prolonged period of low solar activity, over several decades, for example, would be what we term a Grand Minimum – something we haven’t seen since the early 1700s.

    If you have to dismiss all of these scientific organizations to reach your opinion, then you are by definition denying the science.

    Why not look at actual evidence to support your point of view? For about 30 years those organizations told the world we had dangerous Global Warming. Can you provide evidence of sea level rise? What areas of Boston, NYC, Baltimore, Charleston, Tampa, Miami, LA, San Fran and Seattle were condemned from flooding due to sea level rise? What beaches have been closed and condemned? Can you cite areas where oceanfront beach homes have been shuttered?

    If you can’t, why do you believe? Many agencies, NOAA & NWS, require employees to sign non-disclosure agreements. Thus they require employees to keep secrets and not be transparent with the public, regarding the government’s activities. Many organizations are funded by the government thus they cannot push back. Eventually the Global Warming narrative was abandoned because it’s provably false and laughable.

    Climate Change on the other hand is happening as a result of the Government’s activities to manipulate the weather. Research Geo-Engineering and HAARP for starters. They are causing the terrible weather events and then beating us over the head saying we must submit to their “governance”. If you’re not aware, the governments are corrupt to the core as they’re controlled by the Central Bankers who own and control the money supply of practically every nation on earth. This is why every nation on earth is in debt. Interest must be paid to the bankers.

    If you or I created our own money supply it would be counterfeiting. But the bankers bribed, coerced and used subterfuge to create the Federal Reserve in the US. Research Jekyll Island. These same families own all the Central Banks. With money comes influence. Our science, medicine, laws, education and everything else has been corrupted.

    The WEF just like the WHO, IMF, World Bank, CFR and many more including think tanks are tools of the Central Bankers. They have enslaved and deceived us for a very long time. What other time in your life have you gotten a disease or virus but have had no symptoms? Never of course, but yet they’ve got everyone to believe this asymptomatic myth.

    If you have evidence to support the Global Warming thesis these organizations were pushing for 30 years, please share it. If not, I recommend you research more to understand the truth.

And did this happen in isolation or was the sea level rise recorded in other countries in the Pacific too, such as the west coast of the US, Japan, China, Australia, New Zealand, Philippines, etc.?

    The Yanks in the US Deep State became alarmed at the prospect of closer economic ties between Australia and China which they are now actively trying to sabotage. John Mearsheimer has been quoted as telling Australians that they have to sacrifice their economic prosperity in order to ensure the ‘national security’ of the USA Empire which implies their abject vassalage to the Yanks. Australia is in a bind because it is in Asia which makes it economically dependent upon China. With the advent of regional trade pacts such as the RCEP and infrastructure initiatives such as the BRI, the USA does not have any alternative means of ‘containing’ China from the pan-Asian economic integration that is now taking place across Asia.

    Same case with the UK and China which saw Huawei getting banned due to pressure from the Yanks. Add to that the kidnapping of the Huawei CFO which is a criminal act by the Yankee gangsters running the US Deep State. The Yanks are suffering from a humiliating case of ‘sour grapes’ after belatedly recognizing that the USA has lost the highly-competitive game of economic globalization to its allies such as Germany and Japan. Now they’re just licking their wounded egos by lashing out at ‘Communist China’ which had very little to do with the hallowing out of US manufacturing industries to Asian and Latin American countries.

    I clarified in my last post that China was able to build a pretty good relationship with Australia until the Yanks in the US Deep State decided to sabotage that decades-old relationship. As a Western country in Asia, Australia had always been economically dependent upon trade and investment with Asia where China will play an increasingly dominant economic role in the 21st century. In terms of its ‘national security’, Australia can not rely on Japan which has a long history of invading Asia including Australia nor can it rely on Indonesia which is the largest Muslim country in the world right next door. Contrary to delusional Yanks like John Mearsheimer, Australia’s ‘national security’ will become dependent upon China’s increasingly strategic role in Asia while the USA will become increasingly marginal to Asia. The best evidence of this phenomenon is the former US colony of the Philippines where Duterte has managed to tell the Yanks to get lost.

    From what I’ve seen in most coastal areas I’ve been to is that the land is encroaching on the sea and not the opposite as a result of reclamation projects (most of Holland was reclaimed centuries ago and would have otherwise been under the sea). Mostly this has nothing to do with global warming but just to increase the valuable land seaside area. Even the Maldives are building a new island and although it is presented as being in response to global warming it is probably because the capital Male is overcrowded. Dubai is also building artificial islands but ostensibly for profit and not because of any worries about global warming.

    “You mean like when the state police were a goon squad busting workers meeting for the corporations?” This I believe is an affirmation of my statement that government is an enemy of humanity.

    “You mean like when immigration was used to break unions and keep wages down to subsistence levels?” More government interference in the economy.

    We need market determined money for economic liberty, not more government intervention. When government has control of money there will always be winners and losers.

    Ad hominen aside, your arguments fail to produce a single piece of evidence to back your claim that US antagonism to Russia is premised on the alleged need to control Russia’s natural resources while my arguments have put forth a number of events which prove my point that US hostility to Russia is indeed predicated on the actual need to counter Russia’s military might. Having said that, we can agree to disagree as I rest my case.

    I freely conceded that my arguments are based on a judgement call. I used obvious logical deductions, based on entire studies and countless literature which attributes the actions of US and other previous empires on the need to control resources. These things are incontrovertible facts. I further based my assertion on the psychological response of the main anti-Russian antagonists, the neocons.

    Your type of argumentation starting with bluff, bullying and dogmatic pronouncements (“you’re wrong”), then ignoring all critical refutations, followed by ever so mild concessions.

    Every single argument you produced to support your point was undermined by its own anachronism which when pointed to you did not address. There is something very odd about not just letting your and my assertions lie side-by-side, but insisting on a refutation which basic observation of the world can easily refute.

    You need to familiarize yourself with the geopolitical theory known as the ‘Thucydides Trap’ which would explain the behavior of the USA as it seeks to counter the Russian threat to its hegemony. Other geopolitical theories such as Mahan’s ‘Sea Power’ theory or Mackinder’s ‘Heartland’ theory also bear some relevance to the need for the USA to project its military power outside its homeland in North America. None of them mention anything about the need to control natural resources but they do advocate the need for the global hegemon (USA) to control sea-lanes (Mahan), dominate Europe (Mackinder) and counter emerging powers such as Russia (Thucydides). The only region in the world where the USA needs to control natural resources is the Middle East which would explain the numerous US military interventions there. But outside of the Middle East, US military presence in East Asia and Europe serve to project US military power to counter China and Russia, respectively, not to control their natural resources.

    None of them mention anything about the need to control natural resources …

    not only is there a wealth of literature on the direct underpinning of geopolitics into control of natural resources, but one theory does not disprove the other.

    The fact that “none of them [your sources] mention” the natural resources aspect of your argument is more likely to simply be that they’re focused on stressing one aspect of the dynamic over the other. That in no way disproves my argument and the approach it represents, which in tern is supported by wide swaths of literature. All you have to to is actually think about this yourself and not blindly follow a limited school of thought.

    If there really is a school of thought so dense that it does not seriously consider geopolitics in terms of control of natural resources (which I don’t think that there is), it would suffer from the same shortcomings which historians have which have not studied economics. They’re missing consideration of a critically important mechanism of incentives and laws of economics. Your Theucydidies Trap ultimately doesn’t explain what triggers the conflict between competing powers other than attributing it to an affront to a clash of egos; that, is not getting the whole picture.

    There’s another theory that frames geopolitical issues in terms of economic determinism which would explain US military interventions in the Middle East, as mentioned in my last post. That theory is called ‘Marxism/Leninism’ which I left out because there are other forces involved in the geopolitics of the Middle East such as Arabism, Islamism and Zionism, all three ideological models based on cultural determinism which has to to with tribal, sectarian and religious interests as opposed to economic interest in the natural resources of the region. The geopolitics of the Middle East is exceedingly complex which is why I left out further discussion of that region.

    As in physics, there are many forces at work on an object which determine its trajectory. Some of them are more dominant and some are more subordinate but the net force determines and direction of the object.

    It may therefore wrong to say that an object’s direction is determined only by one force (gravity for ex), the effect of the other forces is still there and they help explain the deviation from the effect of the one more dominant force.

    Yeah, I agree with everything you wrote in this post, as I did with many of your points in your previous posts, it’s just that I consider my arguments much more substantial for the actors described (the neocons). But if we were to speak of the military, or some West Point generals or something, yeah, those guys would see Russia simply as a military power: that would ultimately be their job. But I contend that the hysterical neocon attacks on Russia is that just like in the case of Venezuela, for ex., they well understand that if a foreign power were to control those natural resources, (which essentially is the case right now) including the immense riches of power that those resources allow, that would be considered an existential threat to the US; precisely because those resources can be used to compete with the US influence peddling.

    Whatever the case of those Uighurs is or may be I don’t know and I don’t care because the US + EU don’t really care either but are just making political capital out of it. Why are they not protesting to Israel and sanctioning that terrorist state for what it has been doing to the Palestinians for far longer than the Chinese have to the Uighurs? What you have to understand is that US+EU always seek to interfere in the internal affairs of countries they wish to target unlike almost anybody else. Since Russia and China aren’t protesting the treatment of blacks or whites or whoever is being suppressed, or claims to be suppressed, in US+EU why should the US+EU bother about whoever they may be oppressing in their countries? Anyway US+EU have killed, crippled and made homeless far more Muslims in their wars in the Middle East, Libya, Afghanistan over the past thirty years than the Chinese or Russians have in their actions against Muslim terrorists and separatists so what gives them the right to complain? I can understand that some Western citizens or journalists may be incensed by the Chinese treatment of Muslims but if they really care so much about Muslims lives they should protest about the anti-ummah wars of their own governments first and foremost and always highlight the anti-Muslim crimes of their own political leaders and military forces. I think that would be the fair and just approach. And once they have withdrawn all their military from Muslim countries and ceased all their wars on the Muslims maybe then they could protest about unfair treatment of Muslims by anybody else.

Recently, several reports have confirmed how the CCP is using sexual abuse as a tool for re-educating and transforming prisoners of faith, regardless of their age.

    Rooted in atheism and materialism, the communist regime has been brutally suppressing Uyghur Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, and Falun Gong practitioners for years. Those who refuse to comply with the CCP’s orders are detained and taken to secretive “re-education camps” where they are subjected to unimaginable abuses, including gang rape and electrocution.

    Nice to see you have a sound grasp of the problem. Can I add: we will go down this sad road again in less than a century if we do not embrace genuine democracy exactly as Lincoln spelled it out so lyrically at Gettysburg. A thank you to Mike Whitney; and to Vlad… go impale the bastards.

    In reality, not the deranged ravings of hard Right ideologues, or sinister, turncoat, rent-seeking nobodies, every major life-sustaining biosystem on Earth is either in full collapse. or teetering on the edge. I do hope you’re not too old to taste the full bitter taste of your Pyrrhic victory in preventing humanity from saving itself.

    ‘All models are wrong, but some are useful’. The problem is that the anthropogenic effects of burning fossil fuels, felling forests and global dimming from particulate smogs ARE unpredictable. The denialist death-cultists say ‘Let’s take the risk-my fossil fuel shares are more precious to me than my children’. That’s the kind of creatures that they are. The killer is that pumping massive extra energy into the global system, through increased atmospheric greenhouse gas levels and the albedo flip of the loss of Arctic Sea ice etc will destroy the climate stability of the Holocene, that allowed human civilization to rise, and eight billion humans to exist. Denying that reality is morally insane.

    Pinatubo is nothing. The earth crust is continuously shrinking and that is developing high pressure on earth liquid core. eventually that pressure has to be released somehow.

    {” or sinister, turncoat, rent-seeking nobodies, “}

    Your entire post is the deranged ravings of a Hard Left EnviroCommissar ideologue.
    The, quote, ‘turncoat’ you are referring to (Michael Shellenberger) clearly is far more rational and convincing with the facts he presents in his video than the foaming-at-the-mouth deranged ravings of EnviroFascists, none of whose predictions for decades have come true*.

    Back in 1980, Julian Simon – a brilliant man – bet real money against predictions of the raving lunatic enviro-nut Paul Ehrlich. Reality won, and the enviro-nut predicting the end of everything lost.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon%E2%80%93Ehrlich_wager
    [The Simon–Ehrlich wager was a 1980 scientific wager between business professor Julian L. Simon and biologist Paul Ehrlich, betting on a mutually agreed-upon measure of resource scarcity over the decade leading up to 1990. The widely-followed contest originated in the pages of Social Science Quarterly, where Simon challenged Ehrlich to put his money where his mouth was. In response to Ehrlich’s published claim that “If I were a gambler, I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000” Simon offered to take that bet, or, more realistically, “to stake US$10,000 … on my belief that the cost of non-government-controlled raw materials (including grain and oil) will not rise in the long run.” Simon challenged Ehrlich to choose any raw material he wanted and a date more than a year away, and he would wager on the inflation-adjusted prices decreasing as opposed to increasing. Ehrlich chose copper, chromium, nickel, tin, and tungsten. The bet was formalized on September 29, 1980, with September 29, 1990, as the payoff date. Ehrlich lost the bet, as all five commodities that were bet on declined in price from 1980 through 1990, the wager period.]

    The geopolitics of the Middle East is exceedingly complex

    You are making it complex. It is not complex but a simple, even pathological, obsession of Washington with controlling the world oil supplies. Israel is a US big liability in that endeavor. Controlling oil is the center of problems in Venezuela or Libya as well. In case of Russia, US envy Russia’s size and abundance of resources but the game is over because of Russian huge nuclear arsenal that effectively control those resources. Oil will be used until it is completely depleted. Price manipulation (propagation of alternative energy) is not effective because oil consuming adversaries will become stronger and always welcome that eventuality.

    Global warming.

    Global warming?

    There is no more global warming. There is now accelerated global warming.

    People now noticed that our planet is warming up. People did not notice global warming before because the changes were not noticeable during one person lifetime.
    So what is the reason for accelerated global warming Some 30 or 40 years ago great change did happen. And it has nothing to do with carbon dioxide in atmosphere.
    Carbon dioxide stays in lower atmosphere is not cumulative process. With rain carbon dioxide creates carbonic acid and it falls to the ground where it helps in creation of top soil. Also plants do absorb carbon dioxide. So carbon dioxide is being part of the recycling process Carbon dioxide is not and newer was the cause of global warming although there always were large forest fires.

    Mysterious Lady theory.

    I do find it difficult to pick the starting point of explanation, but I am picking the starting point of peak of the Ice age. Ice age is now accepted fact so I do not have to prove it.
    We did find some Neanderthal skeletons and some pictures on the walls of caves where they were living. (But the question is: Did all Neanderthals live in caves?)
    Also we have here a traveler through Alps clothed if fur and leader with pouch of berries.
    Scientist determined that he died six thousand years ago. He was discovered only because the thick layer of ice above his body has melted away.
    Than we have latest excavations in Sahara desert where were find skeletons an villages and former lakes what did prove that Sahara was a lace with ample flora a fauna.
    But most important fact we find in Bible when Jews did leave Egypt they were wandering 40 years in wilderness and when they were very hungry God did send them manna. The manna was sweet. So at one time area which is now Sinai Desert was bursting with vegetation and life. And the manna was coconuts falling from coconuts trees.
    All this is proof that Global warming was present and happening continuously to this day.

    And this is only the end of the Stage, Foreword, or like I love to say Prelude.

    And now I can go to the theory itself .

    I have no doubt that most of readers will not understand the theory because to understand it, it requires certain minimal knowledge of static, kinematics, dynamics and vectors.
    It also requires certain familiarities with works of two Slavic Geniuses , Copernicus, and Kepler, and also Holandian Ticho de Brahe. But I will concentrate mostly on Kepler.
    So how it went down,
    Tycho de Brahe spent most of his life observing night skies recording the position of planets at time intervals. Eventually when he finished his work, he did not know what to do with it, so he did send all his notes and sketches to Kepler.
    On bases of these notes Kepler formulated 3 laws on movement of orbiting planets in our Solar system. (you can Google Kepler to find the Laws,)
    What is significant is the interpretation of second Law which is about of equal areas. The interpretation is that velocity of the earth orbiting sun is not constant. The velocity when earth on the curve around the sun is higher than when is on the curve on opposite side. (Far away from sun.)

    But I do have a problem with first Law (the ellipse)
    First problem is that ellipse is an anomaly.
    Second problem is that ellipse is inherently unstable.

    As the earth rotate around the Sun trajectory is determined by two obvious forces. The gravity pull of the sun and the centrifugal force emanated from kinetic force of the earth.
    These two forces never change so the orbit must be circular,

    So who is right Kepler or me.
    Actually Kepler is right because his Law is based on factual findings of Ticho de Brahe.

    But here is the snag, First law of dynamics is that nothing changes in our universe unless force is applied to it. So there must be some invisible unknown force that warps the circular orbit of earth into ellipse. I do call this unknown force “Mysterious Lady”

    So there are three forces determining the trajectory of the earth not two. (Holy Trinity,)
    And so mysterious lady is pushing the end of ellipse continuously away from the other end. That is more and more away from sun making the ellipse longer and narrower. Because now earth is spending more time on the ellipse that is far away from sun, the temperature of the earth is decreasing and than the ice age sets in on earth. Because the vector of Mysterious lady is in direct opposition to sun gravity, strength of Mysterious lady is decreasing with each orbit. Eventually Suns gravity eliminates all force of Mysterious lady and earth execute his last progressing orbit. And that is the peak of the ice age,
    Than sun is starting to pull back orbit of the earth, making fatter and shorter until earth make last orbit which is precise circle.
    But Sun pulling back the earth trajectory is building up the potential energy in earth.
    And now we know the origin of Mysterious lady. It is actually inertia of earth built up by suns gravity. So when earth makes the precise circular orbit, that is the peak of hot age. And passing that point, inertia in earth is starting to build the ellipse on opposite side of sun and the process repeats itself.
    So the movement is like pendulum.
    According my calculations movement from peak of ice age to peak other ice age takes forty thousand years,
    ………………………………………
    So where are we now?
    We are approximately 2 thousand years away from peak of hot age, when orbit of the earth becomes precise circle. And I believe it is not too good news for humanity,
    At the beginning I did mention the red line and accelerated Global warming.
    So what is happening?
    Sun is emitting heat waves into universe but so does also earths, the face turned away from sun. This acceptance of heat energy and emitting heat energy was in balance.
    But because earth is spending more time closer to sun the enthalpy of the earth is increasing, Increase of enthalpy means accelerated Global warming.

    The problem is that the anthropogenic effects of burning fossil fuels, felling forests …

    Repeating nonsense coming from fake Greens is a bit of a bore IMHO.

    Looking at NASA’s Vegetation Index data, the news is good: the globe has greened 10% so far this century.

    That’s good news because we know this ultimately means greater crop production area and forest expansion. Ironically, what many “experts claim to be a huge problem (CO2) is in fact one of the major reasons behind the greening.

    I agree with 90% of what you had to say. 🙂

    However, the statement Oil will be used until it is completely depleted is not correct.

    Almost all remaining oil will stay in the ground because the cost of recovering it is greater than what ordinary people can afford. For more details, check this excellent website:

    Please do not worry. You do not have to understand. Just watch and record how our winters are becoming shorter and summers longer. And that is certainly not caused by burning fosile fuels.
    That is caused by fact that our ellipse is becoming shorter and fatter.

    You’ve gotta love the groveling sycophancy of European Imperial stooges. Assailed by sanctions by their Master, the ‘Leader of the Free, Western, White World’ over the Atlantic, they feverishly imagine Chinese actions of a similar bent, in a fit of crude projection worthy of the sickest lunatic. The central tenet of Chinese Foreign policy is ‘non-intervention in the affairs of others’, but let’s not let facts get in the way of Imperial servitude.

    You state a very good case indeed. Volcanic activity and more convincingly—back in 1980’s they banned fishing off Newfoundland stating the cod stocks disappreared but about this time was a major underwater volcano off Greenland —–which made no big waves on the Mainline news but it was major. Likewise the polar breakup Antarctic—to break off solid ice —sunshine will not do it and if water is warming –it is a slow melt. However –if magma beneath this icefield –it indeed will melt its way upward and we know nothing about this or the other deep tectonic plates in the Major cceans. Mother Nature runs this planet –with and without bovine flatulence.

    Had the US corporate/banking/Wall Street NOT MADE the egregious mistake with millions of jobs “offshored” – we wouldn’t be having this conversation.

    I don’t agree. True we would probably not be having this conversation NOW. That the harnessed greed of the US capitalists speeded things up, is, no doubt, true, but China was going to rise anyway.

    When the US companies went to China to get their stuff made, there were already, abundant skilled workers, technicians, engineers and scientists. Who knows? Maybe China’s rise might have been even quicker if they had not been so busy making plastic tat! Right from before the declaration of the PRC the Communist government had been focused on Education. (Just a small example: in 1964 there was a summer school on “The Interpretation of Diffuse X-ray Diffraction Photographs” and 150 professional Crystalographers attended it. At the same time, in Fudan University in Shanghai, a class of fifty students were each making transistors as a bench experiment.)

    Around the same time they made their own H-bomb. There was no way short of nuclear war that China could have been kept down then and now it is too late to start.
