“The primordial interest of the United States, over which for centuries we have fought wars– the First, the Second and Cold Wars– has been the relationship between Germany and Russia, because united there, they’re the only force that could threaten us. And to make sure that that doesn’t happen.” George Friedman, STRATFOR CEO at The Chicago Council on Foreign Affairs

The Ukrainian crisis has nothing to do with Ukraine. It’s about Germany and, in particular, a pipeline that connects Germany to Russia called Nord Stream 2. Washington sees the pipeline as a threat to its primacy in Europe and has tried to sabotage the project at every turn. Even so, Nord Stream has pushed ahead and is now fully-operational and ready-to-go. Once German regulators provide the final certification, the gas deliveries will begin. German homeowners and businesses will have a reliable source of clean and inexpensive energy while Russia will see a significant boost to their gas revenues. It’s a win-win situation for both parties.

The US Foreign Policy establishment is not happy about these developments. They don’t want Germany to become more dependent on Russian gas because commerce builds trust and trust leads to the expansion of trade. As relations grow warmer, more trade barriers are lifted, regulations are eased, travel and tourism increase, and a new security architecture evolves. In a world where Germany and Russia are friends and trading partners, there is no need for US military bases, no need for expensive US-made weapons and missile systems, and no need for NATO. There’s also no need to transact energy deals in US Dollars or to stockpile US Treasuries to balance accounts. Transactions between business partners can be conducted in their own currencies which is bound to precipitate a sharp decline in the value of the dollar and a dramatic shift in economic power. This is why the Biden administration opposes Nord Stream. It’s not just a pipeline, it’s a window into the future; a future in which Europe and Asia are drawn closer together into a massive free trade zone that increases their mutual power and prosperity while leaving the US on the outside looking in. Warmer relations between Germany and Russia signal an end to the “unipolar” world order the US has overseen for the last 75 years. A German-Russo alliance threatens to hasten the decline of the Superpower that is presently inching closer to the abyss. This is why Washington is determined to do everything it can to sabotage Nord Stream and keep Germany within its orbit. It’s a matter of survival.

That’s where Ukraine comes into the picture. Ukraine is Washington’s ‘weapon of choice’ for torpedoing Nord Stream and putting a wedge between Germany and Russia. The strategy is taken from page one of the US Foreign Policy Handbook under the rubric: Divide and Rule. Washington needs to create the perception that Russia poses a security threat to Europe. That’s the goal. They need to show that Putin is a bloodthirsty aggressor with a hair-trigger temper who cannot be trusted. To that end, the media has been given the assignment of reiterating over and over again, “Russia is planning to invade Ukraine.” What’s left unsaid is that Russia has not invaded any country since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, and that the US has invaded or toppled regimes in more than 50 countries in the same period of time, and that the US maintains over 800 military bases in countries around the world. None of this is reported by the media, instead the focus is on “evil Putin” who has amassed an estimated 100,000 troops along the Ukrainian border threatening to plunge all of Europe into another bloody war.

All of the hysterical war propaganda is created with the intention of manufacturing a crisis that can be used to isolate, demonize and, ultimately, splinter Russia into smaller units. The real target, however, is not Russia, but Germany. Check out this excerpt from an article by Michael Hudson at The Unz Review:

“The only way left for U.S. diplomats to block European purchases is to goad Russia into a military response and then claim that avenging this response outweighs any purely national economic interest. As hawkish Under-Secretary of State for Political Affairs, Victoria Nuland, explained in a State Department press briefing on January 27: “If Russia invades Ukraine one way or another Nord Stream 2 will not move forward.” (“America’s Real Adversaries Are Its European and Other Allies”, The Unz Review)

There it is in black and white. The Biden team wants to “goad Russia into a military response” in order to sabotage NordStream. That implies there will be some kind of provocation designed to induce Putin to send his troops across the border to defend the ethnic Russians in the eastern part of the country. If Putin takes the bait, the response would be swift and harsh. The media will excoriate the action as a threat to all of Europe while leaders around the world will denounce Putin as the “new Hitler”. This is Washington’s strategy in a nutshell, and the whole production is being orchestrated with one goal in mind; to make it politically impossible for the German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to wave NordStream through the final approval process.

Given what we know about Washington’s opposition to Nord Stream, readers may wonder why earlier in the year the Biden administration lobbied Congress NOT to impose more sanctions on the project. The answer to that question is simple: Domestic politics. Germany is currently decommissioning its nuclear power plants and needs natural gas to make up for the energy shortfall. Also, the threat of economic sanctions is a “turn-off” for Germans who see them as a sign of foreign meddling. “Why is the United States interfering in our energy decisions,” asks the average German. “Washington should mind its own business and stay out of ours.” This is precisely the response one would expect from any reasonable person.

Then, there’s this from Al Jazeera:

“Germans in the majority support the project, it is only parts of the elite and media who are against the pipeline

“The more the US talks about sanctioning or criticizes the project, the more it becomes popular in German society,” said Stefan Meister, a Russia and eastern Europe expert at the German Council on Foreign Relations.” (“Nord Stream 2: Why Russia’s pipeline to Europe divides the West”, AlJazeera)

So, public opinion is solidly behind Nord Stream which helps to explain why Washington settled on a new approach. Sanctions are not going to work, so Uncle Sam has flipped to Plan B: Create a big enough external threat that Germany will be forced to block the opening of the pipeline. Frankly, the strategy smacks of desperation, but you have to be impressed by Washington’s perseverance. They might be down by 5 runs in the bottom of the 9th, but they haven’t thrown in the towel just yet. They’re going to give it one last shot and see if they can make some headway.

On Monday, President Biden held his first joint-press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz at the White House. The ballyhoo surrounding the event was simply unprecedented. Everything was orchestrated to manufacture a “crisis atmosphere” that Biden used to pressure the chancellor in the direction of US policy. Earlier in the week, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki repeatedly said that a “Russian invasion was imminent.” Her comments were followed by State Department flak Nick Price opining that the Intel agencies had provided him with details of an alleged Russian-backed “false flag” operation they expected to take place in the near future in east Ukraine. Price’s warning was followed on Sunday morning by national security advisor Jake Sullivan claiming that a Russian invasion could happen at any time maybe “even tomorrow.” This was just days after Bloomberg News agency had published its sensational and utterly-false headline that “Russia Invades Ukraine”.

Can you see the pattern here? Can you see how these baseless claims were all used to apply pressure to the unsuspecting German chancellor who seemed oblivious to the campaign that was aimed at him?

As one might expect, the final blow was delivered by the American president himself. During the press conference Biden stated emphatically that,

“If Russia invades … there will no longer [be] a Nord Stream 2.. We will bring an end to it.”

So, now Washington sets policy for Germany???

What insufferable arrogance!

The German chancellor was taken aback by Biden’s comments which clearly were not part of the original script. Even so, Scholz never agreed to cancel Nord Stream and refused to even mention the pipeline by name. If Biden thought he could sandbag the leader of the world’s third biggest economy by cornering him in a public forum, he guessed wrong. Germany remains committed to launching Nord Stream regardless of potential flare-ups in far-flung Ukraine. But that could change at any time. After all, who knows what incitements Washington might be planning in the near future? Who knows how many lives they are prepared to sacrifice in order to put a wedge between Germany and Russia? Who knows what risks Biden is willing to take to slow America’s decline and prevent a new “polycentric” world order from emerging? Anything could happen in the weeks ahead. Anything.

For now, Germany is in the catbird seat. It’s up to Scholz to decide how the matter will be settled. Will he implement the policy that best serves the interests of the German people or will he cave in to Biden’s relentless arm twisting? Will he chart a new course that strengthens new alliances in the bustling Eurasian corridor or will he throw his support behind Washington’s crazed geopolitical ambitions? Will he accept Germany’s pivotal role in a new world order— in which many emerging centers of power share equally in global governance and where the leadership remains unflinchingly committed to multilateralism, peaceful development and security for all– or will he try to prop up the tattered post-War system that has clearly outlived its shelf-life?

One thing is certain; whatever Germany decides is bound to affect us all.

    Excellent report.

    “White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki repeatedly said that a ‘Russian invasion was imminent.’ Her comments were followed by State Department flak Nick Price opining that the Intel agencies had provided him with details of an alleged Russian-backed ‘false flag’ operation they expected to take place in the near future in east Ukraine.”

    Yes, these guys are employing the narcissist tactic of projection: whatever they accuse you of is exactly what they are planning, namely a U.S.-backed false flag operation. Look for it. They essentially broadcast what they’re about to do, except you’ll get blamed for it.

    They are trying to bait and goad Russia into making the first move. If they do, then out will come the blaming, shaming, smearing, sanctions.

    About all Russia can do is keep her head down and her eyes peeled for any signs of a false flag, and then get evidence of it.

    It’s the same thing as when Biden said that the biggest threat to the U.S. was White supremacists.
    Using the same projection tactic, what he really meant is the biggest threat to the U.S. was he and the other ruling elites.

  2. The biggest threat to Russia is the neocons.

    The biggest threat to the USA is…..the nose as well.

    The biggest threat to humanity is….you guessed it.

    I agree about all the lying, but after years of being fed a steady diet of pure bullshit on every single topic, up to and including the covid scam and vaccine scam, who’s still buying it?

    I have every confidence that Russia will not invade Ukraine and take it over this weekend (note that doesn’t mean the US won’t try to instigate something by murdering some Ukrainians, who are viewed as entirely expendable).

    I think many people forget Syria, where US geopolitical goals were entirely thwarted, though mucking around in the region persists. The US, particularly under Biden, is more and more a “paper tiger” that barks a good game but can no longer pull much of anything off. America is in deep decline. Wild and dangerous, and still a nuclear armed power, but no longer credible.

    So I think the whole Ukraine thing is more of a distraction than anything, an attempt to change the channel of the disastrously collapsing “covid” and “vaccine” narratives. The US would love to goad Ukrainians and Russians into killing each other and putting on a show, for reasons Whitney outlines among others, but Russia won’t take the bait.

  4. As quoted above, the strategy of the Biden Administration is to provoke the Russians into attacking first. The Russians have drawn a line. They intend to defend their interests up to this line. I don’t believe they will go beyond it unless they are attacked by our forces.

    As I’ve said before, Putin is an excellent Judoka. A third degree black belt that he deserves. His form is very relaxed and expert. If the USA thinks they can unbalance him and provoke him into a rash attack, they’re wrong. Here’s Wiki on an essential element of all successful Judo throws.

    “Kuzushi…is a Japanese term for unbalancing an opponent in the Japanese martial arts.

    The noun comes from the transitive verb kuzusu…..it refers to not just an unbalancing, but the process of putting an opponent to a position, where stability, and hence the ability to regain uncompromised balance for attacking, is destroyed.

    In judo, it is considered an essential principle and the first of three stages to a successful throwing technique: kuzushi, tsukuri (fitting or entering) and kake (execution).

    The methods of effecting kuzushi depend on maai (combative distance) and other circumstances. It can be achieved using tai sabaki (body positioning and weak lines), taking advantage of the opponents actions (push when pulled, pull when pushed)….

    There are three primary ways of applying kuzushi in judo:

    direct action (e.g. pulling or pushing while entering for a throw);
    inducing opponent’s action (e.g. a feint or combination attack);
    direct action by opponent (e.g. a counter throw).”

    Contrary to popular wisdom, Judo doesn’t “use your opponent’s force against him” in a simple way. Rather, A Judoka provokes his opponent into committing himself and then uses his momentum. The key word being “provokes”. A Judoka actively tries to push or pull his opponent in such a manner that the opponent reacts. That reaction becomes the basis for the throw. There’s no waiting for the opponent. The Judoka instigates.

    I don’t think the West will pull Putin off balance. He is too canny, having been in competition for much of his life.

  5. The so-called “Ukraine Crisis” is certainly a timely coincidence with the near completion of the NordStream 2 pipeline. The US needs Germany more then the Germans need the US. The UK/US alliance has been determined to destroy for over 100 years. I hope the Germans finally decide it is time to end the occupation and send Uncle Sam home.

  6. JimDandy says:

    What specifically would provoke Russia to invade Ukraine?

  7. Biden admits all this here:

    The German leader pushes back, saying he has a role.

    Very solid analysis. The Stratfor quote at the beginning is key. I’d argue that it goes beyond Germany. The Wae Party, ever since 1990, has had a Grand Strategy of wanting Europe destabilized.

    The War Party for the last 30 years has pursued a consistent strategy of doing everything possible to cause chaos within Europe. The Ukraine provications are simply yet another manifestation of this.

    Listening to the average German is a pointless exercise, for what newsworthy opinion do you expect to get from the mouth of a braindead coward who has been wearing an FFP2-mask for a year and a half now and is currently lining up for his second booster shot?

    And what sort of leadership do you expect from a pretense of a Bundeskanzler who has a track record of corruption that he’d rather be in jail? The foreign minister is a complete idiot who should ask Putin or Lawrow to teach her the pronouniation of her own language and has just appointed an American lesbian with no knowledge of German as a secretary of state in her ministry. The interior minister is a nobody who has moved straight from Antifa to head the ministry that is supposed to control extermists.
    The federal parliament has a 90% majority of deputies who before the elections last september would have called you a neonazi conspiracy theorists for claiming that they would introduce mandatory vaccination against the covid scam. After the elections, these same deputies changed their opinion within days and will now call you a neonazi conspiracy theorists, if you dare accuse them of lying.

    The dream of a russian-german geopolitical alliance is over for generations to come for lack of substance on the German side. The angolamerican deep state has completely succeded in transforming this former country into a third world shithole.

    BREAKING NEWS!!!!!

    MIT just tested an innovative device that can travel forward in time and obtain hazy images of the future.

    During the first trial run they acquired an image of the front page of The NY Times newspaper for July 9, 2157. Three headlines were visible:

    Russia expected to invade Ukraine within next hour

    Israel reports that the USA needs to nuke Iran immediately because Iran will make it’s first nuclear weapon by Wednesday.

    Although all USA Mayors, Governors, Congresspersons, POTUS and SCOTUS are People of Color, and although Whites now are only 3% of the USA population, White racism is the greatest threat to the Nation.

  15. When the usual suspects in Washington are all warning in chorus about something that’s about to happen, maybe they know something we don’t?

    “Serb mortar attacks” in Bosnia, “Racak massacre” in Kosovo, “Saddam’s WMDs,” “Kaddafi’s rapist troops,” “Assad’s poison gas attacks” — who but the perps at the CIA and MI6 would be so sure that Ukraine is about to go “kinetic”?

  17. Mr. Anon says:

    This article makes a good case for the stated geo-strategic reasons behind this bogus war-hysteria: the desire by the Anglo-US alliance to drive a wedge between Germany and Russia, prop up the petro-dollar system, extend the life of the putrid and senescent GAE. However, I wouldn’t discount other reasons as well – certain Fiddler-on-the-Roof reasons – the undying enmity of members of a certain ethnic group against anyone for whom they hold a grudge.

    All I can say is………….no Russian ever called me “Deplorable”.

    These people are not MY enemy:

  18. Eudion2 says:

    The US can provoke Russia into invading Ukraine as follows:

    1. Claim that Russia has already invaded Ukraine. Manufacture ‘evidence’ and ‘eyewitness accounts’ to ‘prove’ this.

    2. Start slaughtering ethnic Russian civilians in the breakaway republics by the thousands, claiming that it’s only a defensive measure in response to the Russian ‘invasion.’

    Since Russia would already be portrayed as having invaded, it would have nothing to lose by actually invading. And by doing so, it would stop the slaughter of ethnic Russians in Ukraine.

    But having invaded, Russia would give the US the pretext it needs to shut down Nordstream.

  19. Russia has two choices:

    1. accept a militarized Ukraine. This leads to continue trading with Germany, give no excuses for sanctions and possibly grow economically

    2. Invade Ukraine. This leads to be sanctioned, be banned from world trade and stagnate economically. If the stagnation and stations are bad enough, the country might even collapse into different entities

    Given what each of those choices leads to I say they only have 1 choice. Russia is a weak country, weaker than America by a long shot, not even China has gotten Taiwan back and they have more power, Russia will be complaining about Ukraine for decades to come just like China except they will never be strong enough to take it back.

  20. The real target, however, is not Russia, but Germany…

    Why not two targets, one for different Imperial factions?

    “If Russia invades … there will no longer [be] a Nord Stream 2.. We will bring an end to it.”

    After several days of shock at the pure arrogance of this declaration, I’ve begun to support that sentiment

    Everybody is pretending Natual Gas is a wonder-fuel. Though not as nasty as coal, the burning of it is still pumping megatons of Carbon Dioxide into the atomosphere every year. The “unburned” natural gas is another enormous but unrecognized issue.

They have figured out that the Republican “establishment” are also lackeys and liars, and the Democratic base is realizing that the Democratic “establishment” are too.

    That puts them just one step away from learning that the American political and press “establishment” is actually being controlled by a parasitic banking mafia in the City of London, with a major branch in Wall Street. This war mongering parasite is a cabal that got its power as the financial heart of the old British East India Company. From that financial power base its political control spread from Britain to the US and the other Five Eyes, and western Europe.

    “The Crisis in Ukraine Is Not About Ukraine. It’s About Crimea

    FIFY.

    Nordstream 1.0 was already completed over a decade ago and has been in operation since 2011.

    Poland and Ukraine stand to lose if Germany can get gas without paying transit fees to them. Nordstream 2.0 would allow Russia to bypass Ukraine completely, so Nordstream 2.0 is also related to Ukraine.

    The “crisis in Ukraine” is just another Kazarian Mafia hit job, but they are extorting the entire neighborhood.

    But there are numerous other strategic considerations involved here as well. The Jews want Crimea, and they want eastern Ukraine too (the heart of ancient Kazaria).

    ” (,,.)So, public opinion is solidly behind Nord Stream which helps to explain why Washington settled on a new approach.”

    Not necessarily all. The Central European countries, which Theodore Roosevelt put under Soviet Union control at Yalta in the past, are not happy with Russia’s growing power. Therefore, these countries will support Washington in its efforts to weaken the Russia-Germany alliance. The effects of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact remain in memory.

    Mike nails it accurately. North America is desperate for a new war, a war that destroys others. West Europe had enough and is going East. Only poor and backward Europe clinging to dead North America.

    President Putin is too wise. He is not going to buy into America’s despicable bullying and false propaganda. Just as Kim Jong-Un said, “Americans are retarded people”. Trump is a “dotard” so is Joe Biden.

  31. The motivations of the US government for its anti-Russian aggression:

    1. Many high officials have true-believer hatred of Russia.

    2. The US imperial position includes the economic and political subjugation of Europe and therefore trying to block any significant European relationship with Russia, especially Nordstrom.

    3. Since the Cold War the US has used NATO as a tool of imperial domination, especially to reinforce dominion over Europe. But in the absence of an enemy NATO loses existential relevance in the eyes of many, so the US has sought systematically to resurrect the Cold War.

    4. The corporate merchants of death are one of the powerful factions able to use the US government for its own interest. The weapons conveyor belt to the Ukraine is one of the most lucrative.

    Of course none of these is part of any real American interest, and all run against the interests of the American people, let alone the people of Europe.

    While the US government doesn’t actually want nuclear war (at least most of its officials, though there may be exceptions), it is berserk enough that it’s perfectly willing to push this self-manufactured crisis to the brink, all for the tawdry purposes of 1-4.

    That’s just like the elite-manufactured “Covid pandemic”, where it’s likely most elites and their staffers don’t actively want to kill hundreds of millions with the injections (though there certainly are exceptions), but they’re all perfectly willing to do so if that’s a side effect of the Covidian play for totalitarian control and domination.

    I will say that I see no way the US empire will submit to its own accelerating decline without taking the most extreme measures to arrest its decline and prop up its power. The Covidian onslaught has been an extreme measure by the globalist cabal including the US government to arrest the collapse of globalization. And in the end, when it thinks it has no other options left to sustain its imperial power, the US empire will use nuclear weapons.

    The US has a problem.

    As its policies become increasingly anti-European descended, their fit to Europe becomes increasingly bad. The Europeans don’t like this. (Something similar is happening in Canada.)

    US metaphorical arm twisting in Europe simply decreases the worth of a US alliance to Europe (Germany in particular right now). The US Federal government lacks the public support necessary to support a war. Further, the US spent the money/credit it would need to fight a European war on the 2008 and Covid crises. Given these problems, the Europeans appear to be thinking that this would be a good time to change their relation to the United States.

    Should a hot war develop in the Russian Federation, for any reason, and so much as one tactical nuclear weapon be detonated, even if it is a Russian Federation bomb, the Federal Republic of Germany will say that the US is too risky an ally, and will ally with the Russian Federation. Europe won’t be far behind.

    See: http://read.gov/aesop/143.html The cloak is the Russian Federation / Federal Republic of Germany, and the North Wind is Biden’s metaphorical arm twisting.

    It’s an interesting position for Germany. If they open Nordstream II and build cooperation and trust with Russia, then what can the US do?

    The ZioGlob is putting a large scale effort into stopping it. They’ve lined up all their puppet Western leaders and their controlled media is at full volume. Even the 9/11 buildup didn’t rival this, so I suppose that they’ve prepared some equally spectacular “event” – ready to be blamed on Russia.

    When it kicks off, there’s going to be an enormous media barrage directed against Putin/Russia.

    On a related point. This “event” is now so predictable, that the Russians will surely have made a big effort ascertain what it’s going to be and how it’s going to unfold. They have good intelligence in Ukraine so maybe they can already see it?

    A good article by Mike Whitney, the US doesn’t give a rat’s arse about Ukraine, its all about controlling Europe’s energy supplies and ensuring that the EU remains a US client state.

  37. Washington needs to create the perception that Russia poses a security threat to Europe.

    Funny, now the author has presented a specifically new and different narrative from the ones in his previous articles here, “What Putin Wants” and “Biden Spits on Putin’s Request for Security“. Yet the underlying premise in this story, as in his previous ones, still strains credulity. Avoiding the core issue again, the author repeats his entrenched opinion, namely that the US regime is purportedly at fault for Russia’s unnecessarily provocative military stance. Readers may have heard this arrogantly contorted line before: They made us do it and we will never forgive them for it.

    Russia’s main public claims that attempted to justify its foolish militaristic attitude over the past few weeks were transparently ridiculous and exceedingly hypocritical:

    Not one inch east assurance by Baker in 1990 talks, taken completely out of context;
    NATO expansion, which Russia acknowledged in a 1997 treaty with NATO in Paris;
    Security interests, as if though NATO were seriously threatening to invade Russia;
    Kiev Rus the source of Russian ancestry, that cannot legally justify Russian bullying.

    Contrary to the author’s claim, above, Washington DC manipulators of opinion do not need to create the perception that Russia poses a security threat to Europe, because that objective reality has already existed for many decades in the form of Russia’s ongoing illegal occupation of the Königsberg / Kaliningrad territory, a long distance outside its historical boundaries. Yet discussing this issue somehow appears to remain a big taboo.

    From there Russia’s land forces pose a direct threat to bordering Poland and Lithuania, by extension also to Latvia and Estonia; its naval forces stationed there pose a threat additionally to Finland and Sweden; control of its air space provides a pretext for menacing international air traffic; and its missiles positioned there potentially threaten hundreds of millions of Europeans farther west.

    The fact that so many countries have chosen to join NATO, over the years, to counteract this persisting threat by Russia, is a manifestation of these realities and the historical experiences of Russian occupations that the older people in neighboring countries have suffered from. This general sentiment is underscored by current public debates about whether Finland and Sweden should also join NATO.

    Russia needs to accept responsibility for this existing situation in the Baltic region that it has been perpetuating. I have recently pointed out in various threads that it is clearly up to Putin to ease tensions in that region. If it is not in the long term interest of the USA leadership for Russia and Germany to develop mutual trust and better economic relations, then it should be so much easier for Putin to initiate the unilateral withdrawal of its military forces and supporting population from that region that it continues to occupy illegally. This would be the logical conclusion implied by the thrust of this article, but instead the topic is conspicuously ignored.

    The fact that this long overdue withdrawal – or even an announcement to that effect – has not yet occurred, indicates that Putin, at one time a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum, is really just another weak actor who willingly collaborates as a team player with those interests controlling US policy. It has been suggested elsewhere that some of these influential individuals have a hatred toward Russia. If so, perhaps they harbor an even stronger animosity toward Lithuanians, Poles, and Germans. In any case, readers ought to be suspicious of narratives that fail to address the central issue.

  38. awry says:

    I agree with the article is regarding US intentions, but it’s rather one-sided, painting Russia as an innocent victim. It has treated the “near abroad” as being in their backyard after 1991. They intervened many times militarily, fighting in the Tajik civil war against Jihadi type “oppositionists”, helped Abkhazia and South Ossetia secede from Georgia, the former in a bloody civil war where Chechen mercenaries fought on the Abhkaz side with Russia providing weapons and air support. Seceded Transnistria from Moldova. It’s same attitude as France has to its former colonies in Sub-Saharan Africa (not Vietnam or Algeria though, which they lost in a long bloody war).
    It can’t be denied that Russia cannot do much with the West’s soft power but to use force, as seen last time in Belarus (yeah I know it was the Belarusian authorities suppressing the protests, but they had Russa’s back). Maidan has widespread popular support, you can’t deny that. Because Ukrainians were longing after Western European living standards, had enough of living in a corrupt and poor country. Somehow every nation wants to flee Russia’s orbit if they can. If Russia is farther away, like for Germany then Russia can be an attractive business partner though.

    “Cum-ex” is a Jewish banksters’ scheme which has been illegally tolerated by Scholz as finance minister.
    While Scholz & Cons negotiated the current “Scholz gvt.” Scholz had a house search regarding his scheme with the banksters. At the same time, just before his installment, he had to travel to Washington to collect his orders. After his Washington visit the composition of the “new German government” got proclaimed with Scholz as “chancellor” (being nothing but a registrar for the JewSA & Israel). Just now Scholz was again ordered to Washington.

    Just now US Army staff (ca. 155,000 personnel incl. 25 – 45 thousand ready fighters) has been ordered to no longer wear civilian only but also uniforms while in German public life. So the JewSA is bracingly reasserting itself in our lands against us. I dearly hope that comrades will start sniping those bastards running around in the Rhine lands.

    The current situation is very profitable for both, the US & SU, both are collecting premium energy prices, while harnessing military and civil command structures and tethering loose satelites.
    Russia has already multiple times recovered the building costs of NS2 with multiple know how effects.

    Never forget Israel (till it is nuked), which wants to get in on the gas business and sell the resources of Palestine into Europe.

    Ordinary Germans are gagged and gangeled by the lies of the victors.
    I wonder if Scholz knows and fully understands the Holocaust lie, let alone all the other crooks?

    How many of those are LN’s (Local Nationals, or Germans working for the DOD). My guess would be 10-20% if not more.

    The elephant in the room here is the ECB, the Euro, and the trillions in Target2 trade imbalances owed to Germany by the PIGS+France.

    The ECB and the Euro were imposed on Germany and most of Europe, and were likely even less popular then than the lockdowns are now. From their inception, the ECB and the Euro were created as bludgeon to force European “integration”, or more correctly stated, to force European Kalergiization.

    DB, CA, BNP, Rabo, Santader and all the large European banks are insolvent. There are protests all across Europe against lockdown and vaccine mandates. The Gillet Jaune were getting unruly already 2 years ago.

    All wars are bankers wars, and all this Ukraine sabre rattling is no exception. The European welfare state is unsustainable, and teetering on collapse. The aging, lazy and entitled Europeans are in no condition to fight a war, and it would never work. Of course the US tranny army is no better prepared or able. But all this Russian gas lighting serves the central banks and their WEF puppets in other ways. Just the cycling of forces around the planet, weapons system procurement, and training exercises allow the Central Banks to create trillions of liquidity and pump it into the system.

    Positioning of US forces and equipment could also easily have far more to do with the planned suppression of uprisings and internment of nationalist in Northern Europe than fighting a war in Ukraine.

    The delay in opening Nordstream II was due to the company running the operation being a majority Swiss. That has all been taken care of now, and it is a German operation. All the current delays in Nordstream II are internal German issues.

    So when Biden blathers on about Nordstream II being shutdown if WWIII starts, that isn’t really very relevant. If the shooting starts, the Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad will be minutes away from all the Northern European capitals.

    In a world where Germany and Russia are friends and trading partners, there is no need for US military bases, no need for expensive US-made weapons and missile systems

    Neither the USA or USSR acted during the Cold War as if they thought nukes could stop a conventional attack across the North German plain without initiating an unstoppable nuclear escalation to the taking out of cities in the respective homelands. Tanks are expensive, the Germans have decided they don’t need to build them or nuclear weapons because of Nato forces defending Germany. Relative to Germany’s wealth. it spends a little on defence, because there is Nato. If Nato ceased to exist, Germany would have to build a very powerful conventional force, and thermonuclear weapons, then Russia would have to spend more on their own armed forces, and so on. The initial step on the nuke escalation ladder would begin at the thermonuclear battlefield weapon level. After such so called ‘tactical’ nuclear weapons were used on the heavily built up plain, Superpowers might agree to a ceasefire after Germany was a smoking ruin. That is the reason Germany is anti nuclear. Germany wants to make profitable investments in Russia and sell capital goods to China while protected by Nato. German policy is concerned with taking care of Germany.

    This is why the Biden administration opposes Nord Stream

    They did not oppose it, Biden gave permission for it to go ahead. Then Putin decided to invade Ukraine, which he is about to do up to the Diepner (he needs the ground to be frozen to support the tanks, heavy guns and artillery supply trucks). The huge heavy artillery ammunition supply dump clost to the Ukrain border are excellent evidence for a real invasion soon. Russia will strike within the next week or so, and Germany will have to pay higher central heating bills.

    Germany scapped its scrapping civil nuclear power stations because they confer a potential to manufacture thermonuclear weapons for Germany. Fukushima was an excuse to do what they have always wanted to do and remove any possibility of a future German becoming independently geopolitically aggressive. The unGreen pipeline from Russia being built to Germany proves that the environment was not what motivated the Germans to end their civil nuclear program.

    The EU currency functions as an export promotion program for German corporations whose goods would otherwise be too expensive. Germany supplies capital goods to China. But though a rich country Germany contains a lot of poor people, and the ordinary German is taxed to pay for the Euro, which befits German manufacturing industry by keeping their products cheap. Far from being put upon, the Germans have selfish ulterior motives for their behavior. The German ruling class (“The Germans”) dread the aforementioned set up being disrupted by some future political shift to aggressive leadership backed by the common people. Hence the German establishment’s policy is to have their country militarily very weak relative to what the national wealth gives them the capability for.

    I think the main ones pushing the idea of America supplying Europe with LNG is Poland and Ukraine., but they want it at a subsidised price. The Soviet Union did subsidise the price of energy to Warsaw Pact countries. In 2005 Ukraine (in a minus 30 degree winter stole gas from the pipelines crossing its territory and suppling Western Europe as well as Ukraine In early 2006, Russia cut off all gas supplies passing through Ukrainian territory, that entailed switching off gas suply to counties west of Ukraine too.

    To answer your question — if cut through all the embarrassing shouting from the current illegitimate “Yeltsin” regime controlling the US presidency, is that Russia has Escalation Dominance to a degree that even a child can see and understand it. Putin understands that the US is so internally weak and divided that there is little “Biden” won’t give away in terms of longterm geopolitical wins to Russia and anyone and everyone else as long as it is given the appearance of glorious victory and a straw man “Ha ha, Biden forced Putin to back down.”

    In other words, while it isn’t Russia’s preferred option, unless Biden gives away the store quietly Russia will solve the Ukraine nonsense tout de suite. The Neocon filth really did it good this time.

    The only way to right the American ship is to soberly accept the world-historical Sad Story that has been the post-Cold War period. Remember, it was all Unipolar gloriousness until Trump took the oath and started red pilling everyone on what the ruling and governing classes had wrought.

    I just wish Whitney wouldn’t assist in the retconning on their behalf. Obama gifted Russia and Germany Nord Stream I in return for nothing beyond \$billions into the foundations of Democrats and RINO and Neocon filth. He also teed up Nord Stream II. Funny that the second pipeline only made sense if Ukraine was no longer a reliable transit for the existing pipeline(s).

    Trump was and remains the great clarifier. He told Germany what time it was, asking why the US was paying to defend Germany from Russia while it was making itself ever more dependent on Russian gas? This even though Germany didn’t pay its paltry 2% dues to NATO and was killing us on trade.

    Like I keep reminding, if you know how to fog a mirror you know Trump was on to something in describing us as “the suckers” under Clinton/Bush/Obama and now Biden.

    Surely you noticed that “Biden” squeaked that somehow he would stop Nord Stream II if Russia
    invaded — something this author and most commenters consider the chances of which as slim to none. In other words, a straw man to grease the wheels for Nord Stream II to come on line in the coming months as Obama/Hillary et. al., had promised and been paid off to see to completion.

    Geopolitics is about horse-trading. The reason anyone who is anybody, foreign and domestic, participated or at least acquiesced in “Trump Must Go!” is because he committed the sin of being “transactional.” In other words, pursing the national interest and that of American citizens.

    Russia could very easily sabotage all these supposed “plans” simply by not threatening Ukraine with invasion. The US, nor any other country or group of countries could do anything to prevent Nord Stream 2 from becoming fully functional.

    Ukraine is a major rail transit possibility for China to ports it owns in the region in Israel and Greece through COSCO and CRRC is building railways in Ukraine and renovating ports. Ukraine is No2 weapons exporter to china after Russian Federation.

    Reading this article, it would appear that the Russians have been stupid enough to provide a great opportunity for the US to to orchestrate false flag operations in Ukraine that would inevitably lead to war between Ukraine and Russia. Why else would Russia amass a huge military force of 130,000 soldiers on Ukraine’s borders, both near Kharkiv and Belarus, in the Crimea and also increase its navy presence in the Black Sea, increasing this huge presence daily and increasing the tension? It certainly looks like an invasion is imminent, are we to believe that this is all being orchestrated by the US to thwart the completion and start of NS2? Looks to me that Mike Whitney has a supercharged imagination and enough gullible readers here that believe him.

He is in the nationalist and anti-globalist camp (so may sound a bit apocalyptic) and it’s not clear how much connection he still has to the Russian military establishment.

    Address of the Russian Nationwide Officers’ Assembly to the President and the citizens of the Russian Federation

    Today mankind is living in anticipation of war. But war is the inevitable loss of life, destruction, suffering of large masses of people, the destruction of the usual way of life, the violation of the systems of way of life of whole states and peoples. A big war is a huge tragedy, someone’s serious crime.

    A large war is a tremendous tragedy, and someone’s serious crime. It so happened that Russia turned out at the center of this threatening catastrophe. And, possibly, for the first time in its history.

    Prior to this, Russia (USSR) had been forced to wage (just) wars, and, as a rule, only when there was no other way out, when the vital interests of the state and society were threatened.

    But what is threatening the existence of Russia itself today, and are there such threats? It could be claimed that a threat is being faced – the country is on the verge of concluding its history. All spheres that are important to the livelihood, including demography, are steadily degrading, and the rate of population extinction is breaking world records. And the degradation has a systemic character, and in any complex system, the destruction of one of the elements can lead to the collapse of the entire system.

    And this, in our opinion, is the main threat to the Russian Federation. But this is a threat of an internal nature, emanating from the model of the state, the quality of power and the state of society. And the reasons for its formation are internal: the unviability of the state model, the complete incapacity and lack of professionalism of the system of power and administration, the passivity and disorganization of society. In this state, any country does not live long.

    As for external threats, they are certainly present. But, according to our expert assessment, they are not currently critical, directly threatening the existence of Russian statehood, its vital interests. On the whole, strategic stability is maintained, nuclear weapons are under reliable control, NATO forces are not building up, and they are not showing threatening activity.

    Therefore, the situation that is being whipped up around Ukraine is, first of all, artificial, mercenary in nature for some internal forces, including the Russian Federation. As a result of the collapse of the USSR, in which Russia (Yeltsin) took a decisive part, Ukraine became an independent state, a member of the UN, and in accordance with Art. 51 of the UN Charter has the right to individual and collective defense.

    The leadership of the Russian Federation has still not recognized the results of the referendum on the independence of the DPR and LPR, while at the official level more than once, including during the Minsk negotiation process, emphasized the belonging of their territories and population to Ukraine.

    It has also been said more than once at a high level about the desire to maintain normal relations with Kiev, without singling out special relations with the DPR and LPR.

    The issue of the genocide perpetrated by Kiev in the southeastern regions was not raised either in the UN or in the OSCE. Naturally, in order for Ukraine to remain a friendly neighbor for Russia, it was necessary for it to demonstrate the attractiveness of the Russian model of the state and the system of power.

    But the Russian Federation did not turn into that, its development model and foreign policy mechanism of international cooperation repel almost all neighbors, and not just them.

    The acquisition of Crimea and Sevastopol by Russia and their non-recognition as Russian by the international community (and, therefore, the overwhelming number of states in the world still consider them to belong to Ukraine) convincingly shows the failure of Russian foreign policy, and the unattractiveness of the domestic one.

    The attempts through an ultimatum and threats of force to make one “love” Russia and its leadership are senseless and extremely dangerous.

    The use of military force against Ukraine, firstly, will call into question the existence of Russia itself as a state; secondly, it will forever make Russians and Ukrainians mortal enemies. Thirdly, there will be thousands (tens of thousands) of dead young, healthy children (LatW: ребята – word that means “guys & gals” but comes from the root “child” so it means “kids”) on one side and on the other, which will certainly affect the future demographic situation in our dying countries. On the battlefield, if this happens, Russian troops will face not only Ukrainian military personnel, among whom there will be many Russian kids, but also military personnel and equipment from many NATO countries, and the member states of the alliance will be obliged to declare war on Russia.

    In addition, Russia will definitely be included in the category of countries that threaten peace and international security, will be subject to the heaviest sanctions, will turn into a pariah of the world community, and will probably be deprived of the status of an independent state.

    The president and the government, the Ministry of Defense cannot fail to understand such consequences, they are not so stupid.

    The question arises: what are the true goals of provoking tension on the brink of war, and the possible unleashing of large-scale hostilities? And that such will happen is shown by the number and combat composition of the groupings of troops formed by the parties – no less than one hundred thousand servicemen from each side. Russia, exposing the eastern borders, is transferring formations to the borders of Ukraine.

    In our opinion, the country’s leadership, realizing that it is not capable of leading the country out of the systemic crisis, and this could lead to an uprising of the people and a change of power in the country, with the support of the oligarchy, corrupt officials, a bought media and siloviks, decided to activate the political line for the final destruction of the Russian statehood and the extermination of the indigenous population of the country.

    And war is the means that will solve this problem in order to retain its anti-national power for a while and preserve the wealth stolen from the people. We cannot suggest any other explanation.

    From the President of the Russian Federation, we are officers of Russia, we demand to abandon the criminal policy of provoking a war in which the Russian Federation will find itself alone against the united forces of the West, to create conditions for the implementation of Art. 3 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation and resign.

    We appeal to all retired military personnel and the reserve, citizens of Russia with a recommendation to be vigilant, organized, support the demands of the Nationwide Council of the Russian Officers’ Assembly, actively oppose propaganda and warmongering, as well as prevent any internal civil conflict with the use of military force.

    Signed: Chairman of the Nationwide Russian Officers’ Assembly Colonel-General Ivashov Leonid Grigorievich.

    Even 20 years ago y0u would have been correct. 2008 and Covid weakened the US and Europe both. The US can’t control Europe and Europe can’t afford to follow the US lead.

    A hot war will cause at least the governments of the Untied Kingdom, France and Germany, and probably also of Spain, Austria, the Netherlands, and Slovakia, and maybe others, to erupt into frenzies of pledging their alliance to the US right to the bitter end.

    Maybe the UK, not Germany. Germany is already bucking US Ukraine policy.

    And if they try to disentangle themselves from the US, the White House will quickly negotiate a truce with Russia, never mind the cost, and turn all its resources against the breakaways.

    And the US will find that it has few resources today, and that most of Europe will follow the Germans at least to neutrality but (if the US presses hard enough) into reshaping NATO into an alliance that excludes the US and has cooperative relations with Russia.

    I guess Erdoğan is already licking his lips in anticipation of Turkish tanks rolling in Berlin, Vienna and Paris, which he could then send in lawfully.

    Erdoğan may be in favor of Turkish occupation of European territory, but the Europeans are not. Attempts to give Erdoğan a free hand will simply drive Europe under the Russian Federation’s nuclear protection.

    “The primordial interest of the United States, over which for centuries we have fought wars– the First, the Second and Cold Wars– has been the relationship between Germany and Russia, because united there, they’re the only force that could threaten us…”

    A lot of truth in the article.

    Certainly, and amongst other things, from the US/UK vantage, a primary dual objective of the first two world wars (and it appears ever more likely the third as well) is the reduction and destruction of Russia and the Russian people, with the simultaneous conquest and consolidation of control of Germany, continental Europe’s center of power, by the US/UK.

    This geo-political dynamic was remarkably already being foreseen and succinctly described in the mid-19th century. In the 1853 book, The New Rome, which I’ve excerpted and linked here below ‘More’, the ‘Anglo-Saxon empire’ is a reference to the US/UK after a future rapprochement, and ‘Union’ is specifically a reference to the United States. ‘The Czar’ is of course a reference to Russia.

    The ‘New Rome’ in the book title refers to the continuation and evolution of the British Empire as a future world order which is to revolve around a central US/UK axis, with an emphasis being on the United States.

    The historic Anglospheric concept of the ‘New Rome’ is but one facet, albeit a major one, of a multi-faceted past which has led to our present state of world affairs.

Then will the mastery of Europe be the prize of the death-struggle between the Union and the Czar.’ The New Rome; or, the United States of the World (1853) – pg 105

    ‘History now advances with great strides, to hasten on the day when all the nations of the earth shall be one people, united in a single state. No longer a circumscribed portion of lands, the new “orbis terrarum” shall encircle the globe; and as ancient Rome assembled all the gods of her empire in a single Pantheon, so shall the ideas of all nations be marshalled into unity. The signs of the times are clear and unmistakable, and “The New Rome” awakens to her task, and is resolved upon it’s execution.

  101. This makes all the sense in the world. After all, if there are two countries “Americans” hate above all others, they are Russia and Germany. So, of course, “Americans”, being Americans, will do all they can to play those two countries against each other. Of course, by threatening Russia, “Americans” endanger Germany. After all, once the Russians are invaded, by the US and its Allies, the Russian Army will respond by moving westward into Germany.

    Personally, I have always suspected that the US, somehow, caused the Arab Spring. This way, Arab Muslims would be manipulated into moving into Europe, Germany in particular, so that said Arab Muslims could rape European women. And, by raping European women, this drives Europeans who would not otherwise think of doing so, into joining Far Right Groups. After all, said Far Right Groups claim the moral High Ground, by speaking out against efforts of Muslim Arabs to rape European women. And once Far Right Groups reach critical mass, any Mosque that the Muslim Arabs attempt to build, are burnt down!

    It is all part of the plan. It is a rather cunning way to play Arab Muslims and White Europeans against each other. It is really like placing two scorpions in the same bottle, to see them fight. I am sure that Angela Merkle, did not willingly let said Muslim Arabs into her country, so that they could rape German women. That is too far out, at least for me! I suspect Barack Obama, among others, may indeed have pressured her into allowing said Muslim Arabs in. After all, rumor has it, Obama is a Muslim himself. He spent time in the Arab world too!

    Anyway, Germany has no future. Soon, the German people will no longer exist, at least not in pure form.

The US/NATO have been sending Ukraine loads of weapons, hoping they’ll use them, hoping for a bloodbath. Those weapons might just end up being sold on the world’s weapons market for some cash.

    Also, don’t forget that Putin acted swiftly to prevent Crimea falling into Western hands when Kiev fell to Nuland’s neo-Nazis. And that he came to Syria’s defense when it appeared that Damascus was about to be overrun by the Israel-backed ISIS head choppers. These are hardly the actions of a “pussy.”

    Whitney is right to place the blame on the Germans for bowing down to their Washington occupiers. Whatever happened to the spirit of those once great people? When will they throw off the shackles of the Zionist supremacists who will be demanding reparations until the last German is dead?

    The U.S. and NATO have consistently broken promises and Putin and Russia know any guarantees are worth less than the paper they’re written on. This latest provocation shows to Russia that the West knows no limits and is willing to saber rattle even with a country with a nuclear arsenal. And that makes the Russian concern for their national security orders of magnitude greater. It’s now ‘no fucking around time’ for them.

    Russia’s nuclear arsenal becomes less of a threat/protection when the U.S. can base missile defenses close to Russia’s border because the most effective anti-ballistic missile techniques involve targeting a ballistic missile’s boost phase (i.e., launch to peak velocity or the first 3 to 4 minutes).

    Ya I agree with you – we are past the tipping point and the West can smell Russian and Ukie blood. Of course they smell it all the way from Washington, and it’s easy to start wars from far away- especially with the Jew printing press going night and day.

    Russia can still sit back and watch for awhile longer because the US funded armies on Russian borders now have to act and draw the Russians in. Russia is still in the Drivers seat, if their military is running things, if the politicians are running things – Russia could balk and see a lot of civilian deaths. Maybe this what the General was talking about. One thing for sure – all of our comments, thoughts, hypothesis, evaluations and personal ideas that we’ve questioned – are going to get the Answers.

    The Ukraine is just the latest excuse to try and goad Russia into a war, this 8 years after the zionist coup in the Ukraine which overthrew the government of Ukraine and put the zionists fully in control of the government, just like they are in the ZUS. In my opinion Russia will not attack the Ukraine, unless the Ukraine moves against Donbas, the Russians will not let Donbas fall.

    The pipeline will be put in service as Germany needs the gas and although Germany is also under zionist control, the people do not want to freeze and this fact of life will prevail in the end.

    The big hole in this assessment is the notion that Russia will be “banned from world trade.” Not at all. Russia will trade even more with China. You know, the country that is already the largest exporter to and trade partner with the USA, Russia, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Germany, France, Italy, “the uk”, Brazil, Turkey, and many other countries in the world.

    The US share of world production and international trade continues to decline while China’s continues to rise.

    The US dollar is going to lose its world reserve currency status; we don’t know exactly when, but we see that China, Russia, Iran and others have successfully shifted some of their energy and other transactions to settlement in yuan, rubles, and euros rather than USD. They are continuing the process of weaning themselves off the USD, and eventually off SWIFT (“society for the settlement of international financial transactions”) system.

    Moreover, millions of peaceful, productive, rational, industrious, family-oriented people in the USA will be making preparations to acquire residence and citizenship and homes in other countries thanks to: government-sanctioned violence and theft in the USA, the government-encouraged hatred and violence against white people in the USA, the widespread and increasing unavailability of AFFORDABLE DECENT HOUSING AND MEDICAL CARE AND DENTAL CARE in the USA, the systemically glorified sexual perversion and anti-family lifestyles and mental illness (“transgenderism”) of the USA, the “schools’” underhanded indoctrination and even drugging of confused children and teens against their parents’ wishes, the massive US waste of resources on aggressive wars and occupations rather than on our essential decaying infrastructure, the vicious climate of humiliating and firing and impoverishing and threatening people with “unacceptable” views, and much more.

    Our family is doing just that, as are two other families of our acquaintance. All are productive, industrious, well-adjusted, kind, well-read / well-informed white and asian people who believe in God, help their friends and neighbors, have a clean criminal record, contribute to food banks and other charities, are devoted to their children, and are active in support of individual liberty and responsibility. Just the kind of people the USA or any country needs and should try to attract rather than abuse and repel.

    Russia is acquitting itself quite well on the world stage and domestically, on balance — both in this latest ginned-up conflict and over the past 31 years in general.

    Not only will Russia not be banned from world trade, it will struggle through, increase its trade with China, Iran, and Latin America, and probably receive more than a million refugees from the USA as the USA’s decline accelerates.

    The war profiteers, bankers, and anti-white bigots running the US government are in for a rude awakening. Both the American people and the Russian people may suffer, but Russia will still stand as a place where relative sanity and order and morality prevails, where our family would consider settling. We’d rather live in Moscow, SPB, or even Vladivostok, Sochi, and Yekaterinburg before NYC, DC, Chicago, Atlanta, Detroit, Baltimore, Philly, Dallas, San Francisco, LA, Portland, Seattle, etc., and yes, I’ve lived in a number of those cities in my life and know directly whereof I speak.

    Historically, when a country mobilized, or amassed troops in offensive positions near a neighbour’s borders, that was tantamount to a declaration of war.
    Read the book Icebreaker about this.
    So when Russia puts its troops near Ukraine’s borders, could that be considered a declaration of war? Historically, yes.
    But times have changed.
    Since the end of WW II the USA has been busy encircling the USSR (until the WW II ceasefire its BFF) and now Russia, with military bases; 800 of them I’ve recently read. Is this a declaration of war? Again, historically speaking, yes.
    So who began this war mongering madness???
    For the USA to now shed crocodile tears and muster synthetic outrage at Russia’s actions, seems odd to say the least.
    If the USA were serious about world peace it would unilaterally close all of its military bases around the world.
    Any nation armed with intercontinental ballistic missiles, tipped with nuclear war heads, has little to fear from anyone.

    Germany /EU-Russia trade just happens to be the now-critical domino in their global theater. The palpable desperation for war NOW is the imminent collapse of the empire of fiat debt — debt piled atop leveraged debt teetering precariously on a planetary mountain of derivative bets that threatens the dollar’s hegemony — and with it the entire western central-banking cartel.

It will let the US government order everyone to get mRNA jabs for reasons of “national security.” It will lead to more Internet censorship than ever, for “national security.”

    Republicans will eagerly go along with all this, since most Republicans are pro-war.

    The reason being you can’t have a unified world state/empire with a bunch of unique peoples running around thinking they have sovereign rights.

    The US/UK certainly has had the power to do these things.

    See pages 10, 11, 12 of W T Stead’s 1902 book The Americanization of the World where he calculates the United States and United Kingdom between them have three times the wealth and economic resources of the combined French, Russian, and, German empires. He describes the US/UK within their special relationship as the ‘supreme power’ of the earth, and as ‘world conquerers’, summing it up with ‘the lion’s share of the world is ours.’

Right now they can diversify by trading with Europe, if they invade Ukraine that door will be closed. I also doubt they will be allowed to trade with Latin America, the American navy can stop any Russian ships and if they’re kicked out of swift it will make things a lot harder.

    I agree however that America is doomed in the long term but it has Western Europe and Latin America to suck from, it’s gonna take a while for them to totally collapse. Same for Russia to rise, it will take a long time, specially if they’re dependent on China. China’s rise however, will be quick and scary, specially for Russia since they’re neighbors and competitors. No doubt they’ll start buying Russian land, buying Russian women and maybe make Russia as unbearable as America in a different way since Russia won’t be able to say no to much what China demands when they’re dependent on their capital. They will definitely buy women at least, maybe russian men will become as miserable as American incels. Again, being dependent on China will not be a good thing for them.

    But if the crackdown attempts to strangle the Heartland, resistance will mount overnight. The numbers of thugs faithfully following Bank\$ter orders will not suffice to crush the real Americans. Truckers, tractors and cowboys have made a huge difference in what was quiescent Canuckistan. They have given Canadians back their personal and national pride.

    Henry Ford also liked machines, engineering and manufacturing – and he warned the US (1920) of the risk of turning the US into a financialized Jewish run trading/paper shuffling nation – but that’s in fact what happened, and his Detroit is now lying in ruins.

    A bit of ethnographic-historical confusion on your part. The Angles were Jutlanders–Danes. Though the Teutonic Saxons were their Nieder-Nordic cousins; the Angles were primarily Nordics, per se. They did not lose their spiritually infused tribal identities until many decades after the Saxons had fallen to the Missionary Position and thereby became detribalized and deracinated.

    However, in southern and southeastern Britain, the Saxon element was dominant right up until the Norman Conquest in 1066. Those Norman conquerers were themselves deracinated Nordics, hailing from Denmark and Norway, originally, but rapidly falling to Catholicism and Romanism, as a total rule by a military elite.

    So in those “Home Counties”, an amalgam of dynastic Normans and mercantile-minded Saxons have since those years dominated English politics, right up to the time when the Rottenchilds broke the Bank of England and made the place their own personal fiefdom. Later along, their agents, sucked the American experiment into what has become a bipolar fiefdom, ruled from City of London and Wall \$treet.

    The bit about Anglos being influenced by Jutes is true, though. Or possibly the reverse. You can see that the unmatched Anglo mercantile spirit is actually not unmatched: the Dutch can do it too. “In 1602, the Dutch East India Company (VOC) was founded. It was the first-ever multinational corporation, financed by shares that established the first modern stock exchange.” Atlantean spirit.

    I also cannot disagree about Christianity being generally unhealthy for you. Which is why you should give up the hyper-Christian Communism.

The British army had openly rebelled in Ireland in support of the Irish loyalists. Britain was in a near chaotic situation with trade union and suffragette militancy.

    I don’t think that’s a realistic description of the Russian/German history. Here are a few paragraphs from one of my 2018 articles:

    In my unjustified arrogance, I also sometimes relished a sense of seeing obvious things that magazine or newspaper journalists got so completely wrong, mistakes which often slipped into historical narratives as well. For example, discussions of the titanic 20th century military struggles between Germany and Russia quite often made casual references to the traditional hostility between those two great peoples, who for centuries had stood as bitter rivals, representing the eternal struggle of Slav against Teuton for dominion over Eastern Europe.

    Although the bloodstained history of the two world wars made that notion seem obvious, it was factually mistaken. Prior to 1914, those two great peoples had not fought against each other for the previous 150 years, and even the Seven Years’ War of the mid-18th century had involved a Russian alliance with Germanic Austria against Germanic Prussia, hardly amounting to a conflict along civilizational lines. Russians and Germans had been staunch allies during the endless Napoleonic wars and closely cooperated during the Metternich and Bismarck eras that followed, while even as late as 1904, Germany had supported Russia in its unsuccessful war against Japan. During the 1920s, Weimar Germany and Soviet Russia had a period of close military cooperation, the Hitler-Stalin Pact of 1939 marked the beginning of the Second World War, and throughout the long Cold War, the USSR had no more loyal a satellite than East Germany. Perhaps two dozen years of hostility over the last three centuries, with good relations or even outright alliance during most of the remainder, hardly suggested that Russians and Germans were hereditary enemies.

    Moreover, during much of that period, Russia’s ruling elite had had a considerable Germanic tinge. Russia’s legendary Catherine the Great had been a German princess by birth, and over the centuries so many Russian rulers had taken German wives that the later Czars of the Romanov dynasty were usually more German than Russian. Russia itself had a substantial but heavily assimilated German population, which was very well represented in elite political circles, with German names being quite common among government ministers and sometimes found among important military commanders. Even a top leader of the Decembrist revolt of the early 19th century had had German ancestry but was a zealous Russian-nationalist in his ideology.

    Under the governance of this mixed Russian and German ruling class, the Russian Empire had steadily risen to become one of the world’s foremost powers. Indeed, given its vast size, manpower, and resources, combined with one of the fastest economic growth rates and a natural increase in total population that was not far behind, a 1914 observer might have easily pegged it to soon dominate the European continent and perhaps even much of the world, just as Tocqueville had famously prophesized in the early decades of the 19th century. A crucial underlying cause of the First World War was Britain’s belief that only a preventative war could forestall a rising Germany, but I suspect that an important secondary cause was the parallel German notion that similar measures were necessary against a rising Russia.

    Please re-reference your sources. During the 19th Century German scholarship dominated intellectual discourse throughout the Western world. One of the memes they propounded was that the “barbarians” who ultimately conquered the evil that was the Roman Empire were “Germanics”.

    It was a matter of painting with a rather broad brush. If you do significant research you will discover that there is an island in the Baltic called “Gotland” (the land of the Goths). That island was the most significant entrepôt during the Viking centuries. Also part of Sweden (a nation comprised of three separate tribal elements, the Scandians (from whence the term Scandinavian, as they were the central nexus for all the nations of the Nordics), the ultimately ruling Svear, as they call their land Sverige, the realm of the Svear and finally, the Goths of Gothia, along the “Vestkyst” of Sweden, with its capital being that land’s second largest city, Gothenburg” (the fortress city of the Goths).

    The elements of the Goths which overcame the Empire, were the Ostrogoths (Eastern Goths) who, under their leader Alaric, threw down the remnants of Roman rule, and their cousins, the Visigoths (Western Goths) who won Spain from the remaining Imperial garrisons. Though these Gothic folk had been left behind in what is now Ukraine, while their relatives moved northwards; the Gothics were Nordics of the mainstream, rather than their more distant cousins, the Teutonics whom we might title the Nieder-Nordics, whose tribes such as the Saxons stuck to the woodlands of the place they now call Deutschland rather than join the flow seeking to get as far away from the Empire of Rome as humanly possible.

    Unlike their somewhat remote cousins, the Goths, the Vandals, who first had a go at parts of the European side of the Empire, ultimately infused themselves into the western Mediterranean coast along the North African littoral were Nieder-Nordics/Teutons/Germanics.

    Up to the time that the rather silly (because of a physical defect in the form of a withered arm and thus feeling an unconscious need to prove his manhood by donning military drag) Kaiser Wilhelm II famously evicted Furst Otto Von Bismarck from his political control over the nation he had united at the time of the Franco-Prussian War, the Germanies into a single Empire, the Second Reich.

    Easily one of the two most astute political operatives of the latter 19th Century, along with his then unrealized mortal enemy, Benjamin Disraeli, author of several books including the very revelatory “Philip Dru, Administrator” and twice Prime Minister for Queen Victoria; Bismarck created a united front among Germany, Austro-Hungary and Russia, which he called “Der Drei Kaiser’s Bund”. This conservative alliance held the promise of keeping the peace in Europe.

    Because Germany had fast developed into an economic powerhouse as a unified nation and because British economic and political interests feared the possible consequences of such a powerful rival; several measures were taken, including the assassination by “anarchists” of Russia’s enlightened Tsar Alexander and replacing him with the rather naive nice-guy, Tsar Nicholas II.

    The second measure was more long-term. It involved both British and French houses of Rothschild, both directly and via various minion financiers, offering development loans for the construction of railroad systems, steel mills and other primary industrial infrastructure. The Tsar and his ministers bit the bait.

    There was a hook concealed in that attractive bait and it was proffered by the readily controlled financially French foreign office. Simply, to keep those loans coming on in, the Russians were “encouraged” to drop out of the Drei Kaisers’ Bund and to heal the wounds of the Napoleonic invasion, so to speak, by allying with France.

    With those two measures in place and the Russians now seduced into cooperation with France, it became only a matter of time until the Italians and the English (with the Belgians as silent partners) to become part of the Triple Alliance. Now the stage was fully set for that July 1914 incident in Sarajevo when a Masonically connected agent assassinated the heir apparent to the throne of Austria-Hungary, Archduke Franz Ferdinand.

    The remaining pieces of the puzzle rapidly fell into place as the ruling elite of Perfidious Albion worked to ensure that the “Guns of August” would result in the fall of all three empires, as well as the Ottoman Sultanate…and the prostration of Germany via the Victor’s ukases via the egregious Treaty of Versailles, “encouraged” by the continued hunger blockade of Germany even after the last shot was fired on 11-11-18.

    ”With Europe increasingly united and belligerent in the face of Brexit, contrary to expectations, this creates a military division between the US and EU which has not existed since the EU was founded.

    So the US has to bypass the EU to retain military control of Gibraltar via an ally. Brexit achieves this, provided the UK can be brought on board.”

    ”When the US takes control of a country it builds military bases there. The British still have a sizeable military presence on Gibraltar, but have scaled its back in recent years because the Rock’s strategic significance is more commercial, as the gateway to a major maritime trading route, than military. But now it is intending to establish a new base there, bigger and better than anything seen before, even as its trade declines as a result of leaving the EU.”

    ”The UK desperately needs US patronage however, as leaving the EU will leave it with no trade deals at all, with anyone, for a period and few countries are interested in the UK on its own rather than a member of the EU. The only thing the UK does have is Gibraltar, and that is the one thing the US wants.”

    The Russian people have historically had greatness thrust upon them by non “pure blooded” Russians. Their original cities were founded by Viking settlements. Their Royal family and Aristocracy were of German descent. Jews and other minority groups founded the Soviet Union. It is an interesting thought that Russia’s decline happens with “pure blooded” leaders. The leaders after Ukrainian Khrushchev until Putin, reported to be of Jewish descent, were “pure bloods”. Having been to Russia, I am not surprised. The Russian men were completely outclassed by everyone else. I scarcely saw old men among them, likely drunk to death. The Russian taxi drivers would sit on their asses all day so they could collect exorbitant fares. I have speculated that is now happening in America. Despite “white supremacist” dismay, the “full blooded” white Americans are addicted to opiates and they are being led by minorities who have embraced American ideals as a religion rather than “sons of the soil”. I just saw on Fox, the American trucker leader, a very eloquent believer in America coloured man. As you said about Russia, the white Americans could restore the wealth of their country and leave politics to their minority champions. They don’t carry the sin of whiteness.

    So, what we see now in US (and UK) is quite probably their last attempt to secure their late strongholds and, if all fails, destroy and cripple as much as possible before “changing field” and re-emerge later in the other side.
    And it’s understandable that if the latter case is due to happen, the more crippled the US-sphere gets, the better chance they have to thrive in their new “preys”.

    2. After the 2014 putsch run by US ziocons, the formerly functioning (more or less) state of Ukraine has become the poorest in Europe. Another consequence of the ziocon-run regime change in Ukraine is the regular neonazi parades. Ukraine is teeming with neonazis supported and armed by the US/UK and Israel. Where are the Jewish communities of the US and the UK to denounce this support? Where is the vocal demand by Jews worldwide to immediately stop the ongoing weaponization of Ukraine by the US/NATO? Who does own the MSM? Who does own the US Congress?

    The “owners” – Financial Squid and multinational mega-corporations (including the Military-Industrial Complex) – want this war.
    The Jewish Community at large is on the side of the Financial Squid and multinational mega-corporations because of the rabid Russophobia.

    Is anyone on this board paying the least attention to what the Russians are actually saying? Everyone has a pet theory including the odd one that says the Ukraine crisis is not about Ukraine.

    The Russians have said all along it is about the missiles. Five minutes to Moscow and seven minutes to their strategic reserve. That is their red line in their own words.

    Russia, like America, has scores of pipelines. Losing one would be a failure of some sort, but in Russia’s own words, it is all about the missiles.

When a gigantic machine of disinformation and psychological manipulation works, day after day, to indoctrinate the public with lies, ’emotionally potent over-simplifications’, rank hypocrisy and hatred of the enemy du jour, the road to perdition is opened wide.
    The ‘Free Press’ in the West is c.100% pro-Atlanticist Empire, virulently anti-Russia, Iran, Venezuela etc, but most markedly against China. Here it is driven not just by geopolitical imperative to protect the Atlanticist Empire and its eternal ‘Full Spectrum Dominance’, at all costs, but by racial and civilizational hatred that is truly insane in its viciousness. It is, in fact, genocidal, because the threat to White, Western, Anglosphere dominance would not disappear if China turned ‘liberal democratic’ overnight. It would not disappear if China was broken up into several States, as the West has been attempting to achieve for decades. This is a Race and Civilizational Crusade to destroy the greatest threat to Western rule for 500 years.
    And the MSM vermin are fully ‘on board’. Here in Austfailia there has never been, to my knowledge, any totally honest MSM article or report explaining how China made the greatest economic, social welfare and scientific/technological leap in history, how Chinese people really feel about their Government, how China is surrounded by the bases of the USA, the most aggressive State in history etc. No, EVERY SINGLE article or report is always negative, often viciously so. 100% Mob Think reigns, and that is ‘Freedom of the Media’, another jewel in the ‘liberal democratic’ crown. There is, as with the science of the ‘pandemic’, vaccines, lockdowns etc, NO debate whatsoever. To demand debate makes you an ‘antivaxxer’, an ‘extremist’, a ‘White supremacist’, ‘a puppet of the CCP’ etc, abuse barked by an army of ‘liberal fascist totalitarians’ with the hideous platoons of insanely self-righteous feminazi screechers leading the way.

    The Jewish community at large is in favour of what they believe is to their benefit. They are making mistakes there that they have made often in the past. Like all Mafias, this, the oldest such still extant, operates for the Bosses, and the hoi polloi are there as human shields and occasionally foot-soldiers. Within the Jewish community there are many and have always been many Jews who oppose the actions of those elites, and whose loyalty to Jewry is sentimental and familial. Many of those throughout history have simply wandered away from their faith, and sometimes from their community, a difficult task for any individual brainwashed into group identity from birth. We need to be concerned by Judaic elites, the most dangerous and powerful such groups ever seen. Their control of Western elites and politics is UNPRECEDENTED in modern history, if ever.

    Nord Stream 2 will not be stopped — hostilities between Russia and Ukraine may delay it, but they won’t stop it — the Germans have already deactivated all but 3 of the nuclear reactors that used to generate electricity there (link); the 3 remaining reactors will cease operation by the end of this year (2022) — and they are now doing the same to their coal plants (link).

    Nowadays, since they no longer always produce enough, Germany must often import electricity — so Germany needs other energy sources in the future, ones they see as safer and cleaner than nuclear and coal, and these sources include more Russian natural gas via Nord Stream 2.

    But naturally I’m sure the anarcho-tyrannical war mongers ensconced in Washington DC, who are constantly looking for new enemies (meaning you white man) to justify the existence and expansion of the national security surveillance state, don’t want to see such a project go forward, since it represents a significant increase in Russia’s ability to earn hard currency.

  204. The underpinnings behind the assassination of German banker Alfred Herhausen, signaled a strong desire by some German financiers to form an economic re-integration with Russia. An integration of economies not unlike the Chinese idea of shared business enterprise or Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), where polarizing economic and military forces slowly vanish. Meanwhile, win-win opportunities begin to appear between nations. A philosophy that cannot be reconciled with the divide and conquer strategy of England’s three hundred year long rapacity, to dominate human labor and resources under the guise of diplomacy coupled with “nation building”. A corporate and government allegiance, devoted to unfair exploitation created in order to sustain a first world, thriving solely on preserving certain military postures and ambitions almost always of.. opposing interests. The USA has borrowed this ugliness from England and now were all stuck with it in the sense that politicians, military, news outlets and bankers (who finance everything) sing the same song and read from the same page.

    You are describing an idealized view of it, which used to be my own. But there are several problems with it: Firstly, the diplomats of Russia’s ally China should immediately stop pushing the Green party in Germany. Not only, because it is destroying Germany, but because it is the most hostile to Russia and increasingly China, it’s the most servile to the US and loyal to its core ideology.

    Secondly, there is the lack of trust on both sides. And it will hardly grow as long as Russians such as your (former) blogger Karlin release banger opinions like “Germans, not Jews were the greatest financiers of communism”. (There is also the question who financed the Black Hand and that leaves only two candidates: Britain or military circles in Russia.) There is also the enormous human suffering from the world wars, but that affects mostly older generations.

    Thirdly, geopolitics and nostalgia. As long as Russia builds pan-Slavic holy race war shrines like its latest great military cathedral no one is going to take such notions of good faith German-Russian friendship seriously. There is also the current trend to eradicate everything German from Russia’s past by Russian chauvinists. Which completes Stalin’s ethnic cleansing.

    Attempts to divide Europe, in bad faith, between Russia in the East and France/Germany in the West cannot work. So far all these empty promises and dirty games are nothing but hybrid warfare. But indeed, both Russia and the rest of Europe have a lot to lose from conflict, the USA only to gain. Neither an attempt to corner Russia from the West, nor a pan-Slavic push towards the west can work. It has been tried in both world wars and failed miserably. What is thus more realistic is European integration for Russia as an equal, but not all dominating partner of France and Germany. But that is only possible, if Russia acts in good faith and Western elites are willing to become independent from the USA. Which is both unlikely right now, though not impossible – given that the golden opportunity from 1991 to 1995 had been missed when Germany and Japan alone had a GDP the size of the USA, the Soviet Union was gone and China hadn’t risen to America’s favorite boogeyman yet. It was also then when we had reached the first peak of “Holocaustianity” and Habermas stated that the singularity of the Holocaust and of Germany’s guilt where the only thing binding it to “the West”, which just ever meant the Anglo-sphere, and thus any historisation of the holocaust was forbidden.

    So much has been squandered by the politicians and everything is a lot harder today. If not too late.

    Right now, Russia is a regional adversary and as long as it sees itself as the center of Pan-Slavism a racial enemy. China is in some aspects an ideological enemy, in others a role model and globally an economic competitor. The USA, today, on the other hand are an ideological, religious, geopolitical, revolutionary, even racial enemy; an absolute enemy. They are also our colonizer and regent.

    There is no nationalist answer to this problem. Japanese nationalism is light years ahead of any European nationalism and at the end of the day just an extension of the US empire which is consciously fostered by it. The only realistic solution I see, is, that Russia becomes an equal and respected partner of a Greater European Empire which, yes, would also unite the white race for those who care about such things. An Empire which would be free to choose, if it wants to ally with the USA or China and formulate the conditions. This is what Macron and Putin have to discuss in earnest. From Scholz nothing much can be expected.

    Putin just spent ~12 US\$ billion on Nord Stream2 to Germany to sell them natural gas at good prices. And Germany is on board, despite US interference. Russia and Germany want to trade and have good relations.

    Again, give us your reasoning why Putin would even think of something so braindead as invading Germany. Putin had casus belli to take Novorossiya after the UkroNazis massacred ethnic Russians in Odessa, and after UkroNazi attack on Russians of Novorossiya: he didn’t.

    Well, I have seen plenty of support (here on TUR and elsewhere) to the idea they are almost everywhere, in Russia, in France, in the former Soviet republics, etc, pulling their strings behind the government officials and influencing (even if just partially) the course taken by those countries. They may even try to get into the far-east countries ?
    Around me, I just see the coming back of rich (and less rich) Jews, who buy my nationality and are welcomed by my greedy government.

    In short, they would be wherever exists a “westernized” financial and banking system, and people eager to support it.

    So why do the jews want to surround Russia with missiles and risk nuclear war; and why do they like to torture and murder Palestinians for sport; and why do they want to inject everyone in the world with a toxic and dangerous biological material; and why do they support BLM and Antifa terrorism, etc.? What does any of this have to do with “pulling strings” or the “financial and banking system”?

    And BTW anyone paying attention can see that the U.S. empire is collapsing – economically, societally, politically, and militarily. Clearly, there is no chance that Russia and China can be militarily defeated by the jew-controlled U.S.; and there is no chance that they are going to surrender to the jew-controlled U.S.; and there is no chance whatsoever that the U.S. will ever again rise up to be a so-called “superpower.” So why aren’t the jews leaving the U.S. en masse right now? What are they waiting for? If they are not suicidal, why are they staying here and apparently trying to provoke a war with Russia and/or China?

    “We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers forever. NOTHING that you will do will meet our needs and demands. We will forever destroy,

    In order to have something to forever destroy, this world must continue somehow, which invalidates your point on total anihilation, the consequence of a nuclear WWIII.

    Seriously? You really don’t understand the sense in which the author used the term “forever” in that statement or you just want to find something to argue about no matter how ridiculous?

    Well the author wasn’t prophesizing. He wasn’t making a prediction that that the world as we know it would never end; rather, he used the term to make a rhetorical point. He is simply saying that it is the nature of jews to destroy.

    Anonymous works published by heavily-demonized religious-political movements naturally engender considerable caution, but once I began reading the 500 pages of The Leo Frank Case: The Lynching of a Guilty Man I was tremendously impressed by the quality of the historical analysis. I think I have only very rarely encountered a research monograph on a controversial historical event that provided such an enormous wealth of carefully-argued analysis backed by such copious evidence. The authors seemed to display complete mastery of the major secondary literature of the last one hundred years while drawing very heavily upon the various primary sources, including court records, personal correspondence, and contemporaneous publications, with the overwhelming majority of the 1200 footnotes referencing newspaper and magazine articles of that era. The case they made for Frank’s guilt seemed absolutely overwhelming.

    I don’t think so. Russia has announced red lines in relation to the westward movement of NATO ie US deep state hegemony. Its a perfectly reasonable attitude regardless of the Soviet history and the attitude of the eastern EU states. If they withdraw troops from the region, this hegemonic US deep state eastward momentum will relentlessly continue anyway. So it appears that Putin has decided to ratchet up the pressure. Perhaps this is a process of lancing the boil in an attempt to eliminate the pus buildup at least for the immediate and perhaps long term future. So they are attempting to define their red lines by diplomacy but with military presence to indicate to the retarded US deep state that they are serious.

    So far the retarded US deep state is not handling it well with these ongoing ‘imminent Russian invasion’ hysterics. Once this phase is over diplomacy might work, but if that fails then the US deep state will inevitably start pushing nuke missiles into Ukraine. All this Russian military build up is then to indicate what is going to happen when that red line is crossed.

    That would be the Ukrainian Missile Crisis.

    In the previous Cuban Missile Crisis, the US was acting similarly:

    In response to the presence of American Jupiter ballistic missiles in Italy and Turkey, and the failed Bay of Pigs Invasion of 1961, Soviet First Secretary Nikita Khrushchev agreed to Cuba’s request to place nuclear missiles on the island to deter a future invasion. An agreement was reached during a secret meeting between Khrushchev and Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro in July 1962, and construction of a number of missile launch facilities started later that summer.

    Result:

    After several days of tense negotiations, an agreement was reached between Kennedy and Khrushchev. Publicly, the Soviets would dismantle their offensive weapons in Cuba and return them to the Soviet Union, subject to United Nations verification, in exchange for a US public declaration and agreement to not invade Cuba again. Secretly, the United States agreed that it would dismantle all of the Jupiter MRBMs, which had been deployed in Turkey against the Soviet Union. There has been debate on whether or not Italy was included in the agreement as well. While the Soviets dismantled their missiles, some Soviet bombers remained in Cuba, and the United States kept the Naval quarantine in place until November 20 of that year. [Wikipedia]

    The US started it by placing ballistic missiles in Italy and Turkey.

    They would similarly start it by placing ballistic missiles in Ukraine – which they haven’t done yet. Like you say, the Russian military buildup is there to indicate what would happen if that red line is crossed.

    Well, here’s my 2 rubles worth – The Russians only use the word Американский . I’ve never heard any other phrase unless their was a adjective word used before/after Amer….. – lol Russians and Americans have very little in common except for whiteness, unless the Amer. still has his North or Eastern immigrant grandparents culture, morals and straightness. The Soviet culture is still alive there and it’s a very old fashion type living – in many regions. I used to say – ya, they are just like us old Americans but that was because I was in Alaska for 33 years. And Alaska wasn’t the lower 48 – far from it. Until recently. Russians are Russians with a cool mix of other cultures, languages etc.and they are not used to foreigners from the west – yet – certainly not an influx of Американский .

    US is thoroughly corrupt and quite poor if we consider the bulk of the people. Perceptions are taking a long long time to catch up with reality in the usa, it seems, with much embarrassing braggadocio and unconvincing swagger.

    And Russia is bad for wanting to influence and manipulate what happens in neighboring countries, but the US is just a-ok manipulating and dictating what happens thousands of miles from its borders? Alright then.

    By the way, how many people has Russia killed, maimed, impoverished, and displaced over the past 32 years? How many MILLIONS of human beings has the US killed, maimed, impoverished and displaced over that same period? It’s really not a complicated question.

    The “vaccines” are at best useless, as they don’t stop anything and the supposed protection last three months, not to mention side effects.

    Yep. Canute couldn’t hold back the tide, and neither can the US.** In the long run, the reward matrix (if it remains unchanged) determines the game’s outcome. In popular parlance, “The market can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent.” and several other sayings of that sort.

    So much has been squandered by the politicians and everything is a lot harder today. If not too late.

    This is an expected result (if you’re a pessimist/realist/misanthrope/appalled observer). The politicians business is selling and maintaining illusions. That costs resources, men and materiel. When the resources are gone, then and only then, go the illusions.

    ** The difference being that in the legend Canute was trying to teach his court a lesson in piling their responsibilities back onto the King, and the US leadership apparently thought it really could stop the water.*** Canute phrased things in religious terms (in the myth, anyway), but the meaning was clear even there: get real.
    Poem by Thackery that gives the feel of the legend: https://allpoetry.com/King-Canute

    *** Back in the 90s the term was “political reality”, which took priority over “physical reality”, and was used seriously by the equivalent of Canute’s courtiers. I remember once when a speaker came down from DC to lecture faculty and justified killing a Shuttle crew by referring to “political reality”. Political games are not bloodless by any means, and I’m keeping my prose bloodless (usually) to prevent lapsing into profanity, which would inform nobody.

    “Well, although I tend to agree with your appraisal of Flu Hoaxery and Anti-Vaxxery, I think you’re being too hard on the individuals who unfortunately embraced it.”

    At this point anyone calling protesters against vaccine coercion and mandates “Anti-Vaxxery” is clearly completely out of touch with reality. A veritable Karen.

    This is basically a thread about how Ukraine is once again suffering as a victim of Khazarian Mafia schemes for world domination. One century ago in Ukraine the Kulaks were crushed and the Holodomor began. This was all covered up by Walter Duranty, a sex pervert and follower the Sex Magick of the satanist and high level Freemason named Aleister Crowley. Duranty, who later won the ((Pulitzer)) Prize for his lies, was working for the New York Times, who were covering up the crimes of their beloved tribal cousins, the Judeo-Bolsheviks.

    This same New York Times is once again today covering up the deaths of millions of goyim. This time they are not just Ukrainians, but “Useless Eaters” all across the globe. The “science” proving the hundreds of thousands of deaths and millions of severe adverse reactions is coming in from government Vaccine Damage tracking databases across the planet, from VAERS, EUDRA, DMED, the UK Green Book and many others. There is simply no denying that these deaths, ruined lives and shattered families are occurring.

    The New York Times is actively participating in this coverup, just as they participated in the coverup of the genocide of millions of Ukrainians through their prize reporter, Walter Duranty. At this point to argue that this coverup of vaccine deaths is “plausibly deniable” would be patently absurd. Despite the clear proof that the New York Times has been covering multiple genocides of humanity, it is the preferred news source for our host, Ron Unz, In a recent comment Mr. Unz wrote this:

    [MORE]

    “However, all my information came from solid, mainstream sources like my morning newspapers, and it quickly became clear that the virus was only moderately dangerous, probably with a fatality rate in the 0.5% to 1% range, a figure that has never changed. I don’t really care that stupid people believed stupid things.”

    In another comment, Mr. Unz wrote this:

    I don’t waste my time watching stupid videos, especially those by random nuts advocating such utterly outlandish theories.

    But it gets worse. Here are the top headlines from Ron Unz’s beloved morning “Newspaper of Record”:

    U.S. Battles Putin by Disclosing His Next Possible Moves

    In Phone Call, Biden Warns Putin of ‘Severe’ Costs of Invading Ukraine

    U.S. intelligence warned of a new effort by Russia to create pretext for an invasion.

    The New York Times is today horny for war in Ukraine, just as much as they were horny for US entry into other European wars in 1914-1917 and 1933-1941.

    But here is where it also get interesting. Truckers and working class “Anti-Vaxxery” listen to pod casts and videos like Joe Rogan while they are hauling goods and performing other useful work. Silicon Valley Science Snobs read the New York Times over their Starbuck coffee in the morning. This is the great divide right now in North America. After Rush Limbaugh died, millions of devoted working class listeners were forced to find new podcasts. Rush Limbaugh was a deep state limited hangout, and a continual war monger. Michael Savage has lost most of his audience, and Glen Beck has even turned into a pacifist. There are no longer “Right Wing Extremist” podcasters pushing for war with Russia, except perhaps Ben Shapiro. And this is why there is a war going on against the likes of Joe Rogan, where the latest slogan coming from the technocrats is that of calling him a source of “MDM” (Mis, Dis and Mal information).

    So there is a great divide opening up between the awakening podcast listening working stiffs and the intellectual science snobs who read the NYT and listen to NPR. Whereas before both sides would be united and ready to fight a war “for our freedom”, now the working stiffs realize that the “vaccines” are in reality uneffective clot-shots forced on them by people who want them to die in another war for greedy oligarchs. Yet intellectuals like Ron Unz are still certain that it is they who are following “the science”.

    Ron Unz has as much credibility now as Jake Tapper, Amy Goodman and Anderson Cooper.

    They are upping the ante now. Fox news claimed an attack by Russia is “imminent” this week. They were very pro-war for the 2003 war against Iraq too. But Tucker disagrees. On his program he asks why would we go to war to protect Ukraine’s borders while over one million illegals will have illegally crossed over the border into the US with the help of the US government this year?

    I don’t think Putin will attack and I strongly hope that I am right. I think Scholz is another lefty and they tend to do everything they can to hurt Germany but maybe seeing how unpopular the communist Justin Trudeau in Canada is and how unpopular President Biden is, he will do the right thing for a change.

    I don’t agree with this article and I don’t agree with the quote at the top of the article. Germany never threatened or wanted to threaten the US but if they had wanted to they could have except that the US doesn’t have a hostile enemy that borders it where Germany could land troops. But while they didn’t have the unlimited natural resources the US had, they were far ahead of the US. But the whole notion is stupid. It was the Great Britain, France and the US that took advantage of Germany’s geography to take down a country that was far ahead of them and that they were jealous of. The American president John F Kennedy said this and many other people said it too. But he said they felt “threatened”, not “jealous”. It was both.

    I think it’s possible that Germany is a secondary reason for the US to push Russia into a war but I believe the primary reason is to advance Jewish power further is Europe. Jews have taken over Ukraine, they control the media there and Ukrainians (real Ukrainians) who viewed Jews as bloodthirsty murderers during WW II are now consigned to being called “NAZIS” in their own country by the descendants of the Jews that starved millions of Ukrainians to death before WW II. It’s similar to the US where Jews popularized labeling Whites White Supremacists, NAZIS, racists and anti-semites. In every country in Europe Jews have spread the notion that they were only victims in WW II and have memorials all over the continent. I believe their target is Russia but to take over Russia it doesn’t have to take a war. They took over Ukraine without a shot being fired. They want to take Putin down and have a say in a “democratic” Russia. Then they can take over Russia like every other country. There are a few people in eastern Europe (maybe not surprisingly) like Hungary’s leader Victor Orban that oppose the Jewish takeover without identifying it as such. But he doesn’t have to identify it. The fact that a Jew named George Soros is trying to remake Hungary into a globalist multicultural paradise makes it clear who is behind it and they want to do the same in Russia. By continuing the attacks on Putin, even if it takes decades or his eventual death, then they will move in and do to Russia what they have done to everyone else, unless someone stops them.

    Err, you’re supposed to argue against being a Commie, not in favour. “Real Fascism has never been tried!” rofl

    Sometimes, when I pwn someone really, really hard, they stop being able to string words together. Technically that’s not occurring here, but it’s damn close. P.S. the quote is neither concise nor particularly clear. Counter-example to follow.

    The quote is a straight self-contradiction. “If you stop talking we can start talking.” This is the logic of someone who steals gas and slashes tires when they want to get a truck moving. You probably think you support the truckers, don’t you? It’s better than nothing, but it’s kind of more important to stop being a Satanist…

    Using Christian terms amuses me first because it fucks with both Satanists and “anti” Satanists. The former because vampires and crosses. The latter because I then say utter apostasy and they can’t even. “Why aren’t you doing the vampire/cross thing?!?!” lmao

    I believe their target is Russia but to take over Russia it doesn’t have to take a war.

    Russia is already part of ZOG and Putin is a C-Jew.

    This also exposes the fallacy of claims that the “US Empire” wants to stop Germany and Russia forming a continental alliance and somehow validating the Mackinder doctrine. Jews control all of Europe and all of Russia. In fact, they control the entire planet through their Central Bank cabal of usurers.

    I do not doubt that certain factions of Jews commanding their Kommisar Victoria Nuland would love to dispose Putin the C-Jew and his Kabal of Lubbowitzers and get control of all that wealth, but this should not be confused with an effort by the “US Empire” to conquer and loot Russia.

    The list of leaders and wanna-be leaders who planned to go, or went, rogue and cast off the yoke of Jewish Power and Usury reads like the headstones in the Wehrmacht graveyard at Normandy. Nasser, Saddam Hussein, Ghaddafy, Soleimani, Hitler, Stalin, Patton, John and Robert Kennedy, etc.

    Instead what we really have with all this Ukraine war mongering is ambitious Zio-puppets constantly fighting and jostling among themselves for recognition and favors from the all powerful ancient families and rabbinical councils.

    If Donbas is stripped from Ukraine and integrated into Russia, or if Crimea is stripped from Russia and integrated into Ukraine, it will not change this essential fact: The entire region is part of ZOG and will remain so.

    Germany does not have a military in working order nor a police force capable of handling really rough stuff anymore, but it does have millions of Turkish “dual citizens” with unconditional loyalty to Erdoğan and tens of thousands of heavily armed Arabic and Afghan clansmen with plenty of combat experience who are only waiting for the signal to establish yet another theocracy – in parliament there is actually a motion on the floor right now, presented by a Persian MP, to introduce “the constitution-compatible portions” of the shariah.
    Sorry to disappoint you, but for Germany it’s Game Over. Hence there’s no bucking either; our ersatz Foreign Minister Baerbock has just assured Ukraine of support “whatever the cost”, in terms alarmingly similar to the “unconditional guarantee” given in 1914 by the Kaiser to Austria-Hungary, albeit mitigated, of course, by the fact that after donating 5000 helmets to the Ukraine military, the remaining deployable military equipment of the Feral Republic amounts to a few 40-year-old tanks and some three frigates that are easily outrun by modern submarines.

    So why do the jews want to surround Russia with missiles and risk nuclear war; and why do they like to torture and murder Palestinians for sport; and why do they want to inject everyone in the world with a toxic and dangerous biological material; and why do they support BLM and Antifa terrorism, etc.? What does any of this have to do with “pulling strings” or the “financial and banking system”?

    The answer is very simple: desire for control.
    It doesn’t matter where and how.

    And BTW anyone paying attention can see that the U.S. empire is collapsing – economically, societally, politically, and militarily. Clearly, there is no chance that Russia and China can be militarily defeated by the jew-controlled U.S.; and there is no chance that they are going to surrender to the jew-controlled U.S.; and there is no chance whatsoever that the U.S. will ever again rise up to be a so-called “superpower.”

    I have no contending on that.

    So why aren’t the jews leaving the U.S. en masse right now? What are they waiting for? If they are not suicidal, why are they staying here and apparently trying to provoke a war with Russia and/or China?

    I have answered that in my previous post. Please do me a favour and read more attentively.
    And look up to comment #253. You will see there plenty of Jews on the opposite side of US.

    Seriously? You really don’t understand the sense in which the author used the term “forever” in that statement or you just want to find something to argue about no matter how ridiculous?

    I have a right to my interpretation as you have to yours.

    Well the author wasn’t prophesizing. He wasn’t making a prediction that that the world as we know it would never end; rather, he used the term to make a rhetorical point. He is simply saying that it is the nature of jews to destroy.

    So, now the texts are not to be interpreted literally as you always defended, as in previous discussions we had before ? You have an interesting way to turn the tables on me!

    Yes many of the elites know that while it was inevitable the US would grow – the reason it got to the pinnacle of nations was because the rest of the old powers in Asia crumbled and Europe had two devastating wars. That allowed the US to step in and set all the rules… But when inevitably others because to ascend and re-ascend it would be impossible for the US to keep the same relative strength. So yes – the goal is to try to keep others in chaos so that they can’t dilute US strength. Keeping the US a high standard of living isn’t enough for some people’s egos. They have to dominate. But they don’t know human history and really believe the hype of being “indispensable” and “exceptional”.

Germdny has, under its odious false imposed guilt given a fifth nuclear-powered sub to Isreal. Well, I guess it is an odd way to unload some of the reactor fuel they won’t be using now.

    The design of these subs is such that they are adaptable to launch nuclear-tipped cruise missles, which without doubt has happened. Sick.

    I will turn east, back in 1942, our foreign minister was returning from talks in Berlin, and with the alliance (Berlin-Moscow)then in place, was advised to ‘head south’ by the comissar.

    In a similar event, about thirty years later, our F.M. met a U.S. State Dept. person, I think Dulles at an airport.

    At the time, our and Sov. govts had agreed to a peaceful solution to the Kuriles, southmost two to Japan, northern two to Russia.

    An agreement was made in writing.

    Our F.M. met, IIRC Dulles at an airport, ‘if you honour that commitment, Okinawa will not be returned’.

    That shows both ignorance and bellgerence. Okinawans don’t see themselves as Japanese, smart people in the US army (they existed)knew that, and supported independence for the Ryuukyuu islands, as they always, and correctly, called Okinawa.

    The place was the first to be grabbed by Japanese imperialism, 1871.

    There is one CO2 molecule for every 2500 other molecules that surround it in the atmosphere. Should that one molecule obtain some heat, the neighboring molecules will absorb it and radiate it to space.

    It is entirely a function of concentration and at .04%, CO2 hasn’t the power to overwhelm anything. If CO2 could form a layer of concentrated CO2, then the warmists would have a case, but that isn’t reality and Brownian motion says it can’t happen.

    It is insane to think that the average Jew wishes to destroy the world.

    I didn’t say that the “average Jew wishes to destroy the world.”

    That said, let me ask you a question. When Jewish author Maurice Samuel said “[w]e Jews, we, the destroyers…,” which “Jews” was he referring to? Only the “bad” Jews? The problem is he didn’t make any distinctions. He didn’t say “we bad Jews…” right? So he was apparently referring to all Jews; that is, to each and every person who identifies as a Jew.

    You would probably tell me that Samuel is only one Jewish author and this is just his personal opinion. So I’ll try to preempt this argument by pointing out that there are many Jewish authors who’ve made similar statements. For example:

    “For months now the struggle against Germany is waged by each Jewish community, at each conference, in all our syndicates, and by each Jew all over the world. There is reason to believe that our part in this struggle has general value. We will trigger a spiritual and material war of all the world against Germany’s ambitions to become once again a great nation, to recover lost territories and colonies. But our Jewish interests demand the complete destruction of Germany. Collectively and individually, the German nation is a threat to us Jews.” — Vladimir Jabotinsky (founder of the Jewish terrorist group, Irgun Zvai Leumi) in Mascha Rjetsch, January, 1934 (also quoted in “Histoire de l’Arme’e Allemande” by Jacques Benoist–Mechin, Vol. IV, p. 303).

    There it is again: we Jews (all of us, not just the ostensibly “bad” Jews) need to destroy Germany.

    I could go on giving further examples but I think you get the idea.

    The Talmudic monsters-yes, but they hate most of their Jewish ‘brethren’, too, hatred being their true ‘Faith’.

    It gets confusing, doesn’t it (especially when moral issues are involved)? Perhaps an analogy will clear a few things up.

    I think a useful comparison can be made between the Jewish collective and the U.S. military. Do the top military brass and the politicians who make the decisions (e.g. to start wars) really care about the well-being of the average enlistee?

    As I type this they’re demanding that their own military personnel be injected with toxic biological substances, right? I would say this alone tells the story; not to mention the historical record of all the other atrocities, e.g. making them drink polluted water, exposing them to depleted uranium and other toxins, exposing them to radiation as an experiment, knowingly giving them faulty equipment, letting Israel murder them to create a pretext for war, etc. Time and time again, the U.S. “government” and those who control it have shown nothing but utter contempt for their loyal servants in the U.S. military. But does this sad reality somehow absolve someone from personal moral responsibility for what he does; e.g. someone who voluntarily joins the army and then illegally deploys to Syria and shoots people who are defending their country? I would say it doesn’t.

    Anyway, does the average 18 year old who joins some branch of the U.S. military generally do so because he wants to (i.e. has a conscious desire to) brutalize and subjugate the whole world for the evil U.S. “government” (and thus for the Satanists who control it)? Probably not. The problem is that he’s wearing the uniform and he’s following orders (or he’s expressed a willingness to follow orders) from evil people. So even if he’s not presently deployed in some foreign country to prop up an illegitimate puppet government etc. he’s justifiably perceived as a threat to the whole world, under the circumstances.

    I don’t think that that is how it would unfold.

    Clearly, some kind of false flag operation is planned against Russia, or at least ethnic Russians in Donbas. We know that it was the murder and rape of ethnic Germans in Sudetenland, Dansk and West Prussia that caused Hitler to react aggressively and fall into ZOG’s trap. We can be certain that this will be what happens in Eastern Ukraine.

    The question is if Putin, and Russia, will take the bait. Or more correctly, if they will be forced to take the bait. If they do, then Nato (The Rothschild Army) will have its causus belli.

    If Putin is not ordered to react, or if he refuses to react, then likely there will be an escalation in Crimea. This would take the of another false flag. We could expect some Ukrainians to be rounded up in a fake “massacre” in Crimea, or perhaps the sinking of a Ukrainian naval ship that is blamed on Russia.

    We can be certain that Ukraine and Nato will not allow the situation to develop in such a manner that they can be perceived of, or successfully accused of, having started the conflict. This is the essence of the game going on. Zato is horny for a goyim war. Putin wants to play the waiting game and build up his resources. This is exactly what was going on with Germany and Poland in the late 1930’s.

    We know from what happened in Eastern Europe and in the Pacific region in the lead up to WWII that the Hebrews are experts at gas lighting, projection and provocation.

    Once the Russians react, likely there will be some move on Kaliningrad to really start the escalation.

They fly much faster and are much more accurate also. Did you learn nothing from the Cuban missile crisis??

    There is only one way China forcibly reconciles Taiwan back into the Mainland. If the G7 countries try to recognize it as an independent country and/or try to establish military presence (not the nonsense about personnel training there the media made a big deal out of last year – as this has been the case since US troops formally left in the 70’s and of course the Mainland knew). Other than that there is literally no reason to do so. The island used to be more advanced than the Mainland – but except for semiconductor manufacturing there is absolutely nothing the island is more advanced in. It’s value now are cultural heritage (the “mandate of heaven” as it is known) and to prevent the US and Japan from trying to blockade China through the First Island Chain. So unless the US and it’s lackeys push further there is no reason to invade.

    The very concept of “repentance” stems primarily from Augustine with his execrable “Original Sin” madness. That element within Constantinian Crosstianity is in itself “original sin”. Vicarious Redemption is a denial of the WayShower Jesus’ message that “The Father is Within”. Crosstianity is a gross perversion of the man after whom it was named.

    So why do the jews want to surround Russia with missiles and risk nuclear war; and why do they like to torture and murder Palestinians for sport; and why do they want to inject everyone in the world with a toxic and dangerous biological material; and why do they support BLM and Antifa terrorism, etc.? What does any of this have to do with “pulling strings” or the “financial and banking system”?

    The answer is very simple: desire for control.

    Not quite. As theistic Satanists they have a calculated “desire” to deceive, corrupt and manipulate other people into doing evil. This isn’t actually about control per se; what they’re doing is proselytizing for Satan. They’re fighting a spiritual war against humanity. They seek to corrupt, and whatever or whoever they can’t corrupt they seek to destroy.

    [MORE]

    And let me expand on “etc.” from my earlier comment. They didn’t just murder Rachel Corrie because she interfered with their effort to control Palestine, they also plundered her organs. They didn’t just do 9/11 to consolidate their control over the U.S. government, they also collected insurance money and profited on put options on airlines and insurance companies.

    You see, being demon-possessed Satanists they have a “desire” to do evil themselves; they do what they do because they’re evil. They enjoy doing things like murdering Palestinians.

    “Many Israeli Facebook users have posted violent and disturbing content on their personal accounts. Talya Shilok Edry, who has more than one thousand followers, posted the following “status”: “What an orgasm to see the Israeli Defense Forces bomb buildings in Gaza with children and families at the same time. Boom boom.”

    https://electronicintifada.net/blogs/patrick-strickland/bombing-gaza-children-gives-me-orgasm-israelis-celebrate-slaughter-facebook

    It doesn’t matter where and how.

    You’re contradicting yourself. Earlier you said that they’re not suicidal, and now you say “the where and how” [of achieving control] doesn’t matter.” Of course it matters because you can’t have it both ways. Trying to control Russia by surrounding it with missiles – which risks planetary extinction – is a suicidal act.

    And BTW anyone paying attention can see that the U.S. empire is collapsing – economically, societally, politically, and militarily. Clearly, there is no chance that Russia and China can be militarily defeated by the jew-controlled U.S.; and there is no chance that they are going to surrender to the jew-controlled U.S.; and there is no chance whatsoever that the U.S. will ever again rise up to be a so-called “superpower.”

    I have no contending on that.

    If by that incomprehensible statement you are trying to say you agree with what I said (immediately above), then you contradict yourself again in your statement below.

    So why aren’t the jews leaving the U.S. en masse right now? What are they waiting for? If they are not suicidal, why are they staying here and apparently trying to provoke a war with Russia and/or China?

    I have answered that in my previous post. Please do me a favour and read more attentively.

    Apparently you’re referring to the following statement you made in comment #200 wherein you said:

    So, what we see now in US (and UK) is quite probably their last attempt to secure their late strongholds and, if all fails, destroy and cripple as much as possible before “changing field” and re-emerge later in the other side.
    And it’s understandable that if the latter case is due to happen, the more crippled the US-sphere gets, the better chance they have to thrive in their new “preys”.

    But if you agree with me when I say that the U.S. empire is collapsing, will never defeat Russia and China, will never recover status as a “superpower,” etc., then your earlier statement obviously doesn’t explain why the Jews – if they are not suicidal – continue to stay here and push for a confrontation with Russia and China which could easily become a nuclear war. Nice try though.

    Seriously? You really don’t understand the sense in which the author used the term “forever” in that statement or you just want to find something to argue about no matter how ridiculous?

    I have a right to my interpretation as you have to yours.

    You certainly do, but the thing is, you have no right to be taken seriously, and when you say something so ridiculous apparently just for the sake of contention, you’re not.

    Well the author wasn’t prophesizing. He wasn’t making a prediction that that the world as we know it would never end; rather, he used the term to make a rhetorical point. He is simply saying that it is the nature of jews to destroy.

    So, now the texts are not to be interpreted literally as you always defended, as in previous discussions we had before ? You have an interesting way to turn the tables on me!

    How a reasonable person would generally construe another person’s statements depends on the context in which the statements are made, no? It’s not a matter of “turning tables” it’s a matter of simple reasoning. Your absurd misconstruction of Samuel’s statement reflects poorly on you, not on me.

    But I don’t see the point on discussions with you. You never try to examine (or even read…) what others say, except when it coincides exactly with your poor ideas.

Second, with the enormous excess profits earned by Gazprom over the past 6 months and no doubt continuing for at least another 6 months, Gazprom has pretty much already got their invested rubles back in its treasury. Gazprom will be soon be declaring its dividend from 2021 profits. The dividend is expected to yield 15 to 20% on current share price. No one needs to worry about Gazprom’s financial condition.

    The chutzpah of all these dozens of claims about how Russia is going to stage a false flag smeared across all the MSM headlines for weeks on end is astounding. They mirror the Gleiwitz “incident” of 1939, except then it was ex post facto, and these current claims of Russia preparing a false flag in order to invade Ukraine are pre de facto.

    Everything about Gleiwitz stinks of typical Hebrew lies and projection, but likely the foulest lie of all is the “affidavit” from one officer was used as proof of aggressive war intentions by the entire country of Germany that was used as justification for the murder of dozens of German officers at Nuremberg and millions of Germans during the implementation of the Morgentau plan.

    The Gleiwitz incident is one of histories most damaging single Yid lies. In his declaration of war against Poland, Hitler never even mentioned it.

    Here is some more information on Gleiwitz:

    [MORE]

    Historians overwhelmingly accept as true, as do most people who know of this “incident,” that the SS, SD and Gestapo worked together to concoct an elaborate fake raid on the radio-transmitter station located in Gleiwitz (now known as Gliwice[6]), a small border town located on the Polish-German frontier. By most accounts, a handful of either SS or SD men—historians are unable to agree on which—purportedly dressed up as “Polish soldiers” or “insurgents” and staged a shootout at the transmitter station. This shootout was purportedly led by the notorious Nazi turncoat Alfred Naujocks[7], the sole source behind the Nuremberg account of the raid. These SS and/or SD men were supposed to have left a body—only recently identified as a Polish citizen of German descent named Franz Honiok (minus any proof)[8]—at the scene as evidence that much more than just a scuffle took place there.[9] However, some historians, such as Dennis Whitehead, seem to think that the SS/SD shot and killed a few of their own men to make the whole thing seem real, and that in fact hundreds of men took place in this whole covert operation (300, to be exact)—which includes two other “false-flag” raids at Hohenlinden or Hochlinden (henceforth, H/H; historians cannot agree on which location it was) and Pitschen. In a nutshell, Mr. Whitehead merged several contradictory versions of the Gleiwitz Incident in an attempt to sell the entire “Nazi false-flag” story as legit. He failed in his mission because two (or more) fictional accounts are no better than one. My own research into this incident, and the other two purported false flags at H/H and Pitschen, proves that not a single one of these historians’ claims is verified. Not a single one.

    That the world is on precipice of another world war all based Jewish lies. One can only hope that this time the Jews themselves, and no one else, suffer the full and direct consequences.

    The “Poles” then broadcast a message (in Polish) urging others to take up arms and start attacking Germans. German police quickly arrive and retake the station, killing one of the Red terrorists.

    The Nation of Islam certainly is interesting in that they seem one of, if not the, only major Black-American organisation which hasn’t been coopted by outside government/ethnic interests for decades. From what I can tell (I haven’t paid the topic close attention), they stood aside from the mass-rioting and looting in the memory of Saint Floyd last year, though I might be wrong about that.

    The organisation might be a worthwhile subject of an ‘American Pravda’ in itself. Louis Farrakhan has long been heavily suspected in Malcom X’s death, but again, I don’t how overly romanticised views of the latter are, though he certainly appears to have been a stronger man than Luther King Jnr.

    This has all been taking place within the context of a manufactured and broadly controlled (crimethink, I know) Capitalist vs Communist Hegelian dialectic which got its start with the revolutions of 1776 and 1789, the City of London acting as the midwife at this dialectic’s late 18th century birth.

    Anyhow, the world war drums do seem to be pounding awfully loud this weekend. We shall see…

    If the pipeline is ready, why can’t Germany open the valves and just don’t care? How would Uncle Sam block it? By putting sanctions on Germany? Or hijacking the Rockwell or Siemens control softs with the usual trojans and them blaming gas flow interruptions on Russia? If so, everybody will know that’s not really ”cyberattacks’ by Russia, and the Davos-NATO clique will definitely lose its credibility.

    Yes, it is true that the US will benefit more if NordStream2 is cancelled. However, the first move – moving troops to the Ukraine border was initiated by Putin. Putin miscalculated that Biden will not have the stomach to oppose him after the Afganistan fiasco. Putin also knows that Europe is already divided. The same thing happened in 2014 – when the US was distracted, Putin invade Crimea, Europe wringed their hands and Putin got away with it. He’s doing the same bully act now – except Biden decided to call his bluff. If Putin did not amass his troops to Ukraine, Biden would have left him alone. So which leader is looking for trouble?

    Given Putin’s history, there is no chance he will want to invade anyone. This statement ignores the fact that in 2014, Putin invaded and took over Crimea. The more useful truth is that Putin is a bully and will take over Ukraine if no country objects enough to put troops to fight. Europe is good at wringing their hands, they did that in 2014. Putin expected Biden to kowtow because of the Afganistan fiasco, and let him have his way. But Biden is calling Putin’s bluff. Alternatively, if Putin had not amassed his troops, no one would be talking about a war now. So, who started the war — I say it was Putin and his bullying tactics.

    Brilliant analysis. But I think that the real target is China.

    When China and Russia come together, they are a formidable force, which can resist every US sanction. China purchases Russian oil. It purchases oil from Iran as well.

    Both Russia and China need to be separated. So attack Russia first. By isolating Germany first, ad Russia next, China gets isolated, even weakened.

    The US has succeeded in pulling India away from China. It must now do so with Russia. It has not succeeded in separating India and Russia, though.

And since the US military and Nato, think that they have no skin in the game { large amounts of troops in Ukraine} they will sit back and cry to the media about the Russian invasion that they have warned about for the past 2 months.

    Personally, I’d float into Odecca with the Black Sea military and secure that port – US Navy and all , then have transnistria start walking east, while Crimea , Rostov and others goes full missiles on the Donbass/Ukie front. A No fly zone should be put up at the start of the Odecca campaign. Later Crimea can head to Kherson and hook up with the B S marines . By this time Crimea and southern Russia will have air superiority and can take Mariupol { Azov Sea will be secured} and then they can head towards Kyivv . Of course Belarus and the Russian army will have started down to Kyiv by then. If Romania, Bulgaria or Poland launch – dosvidanya.

    ”Meanwhile, oil prices have risen over 50% and natural gas over 60% in Europe in the past year, “due to a supply crisis of its governments’ own making,” writes Macleod. Member governments are heavily in debt, yet European Central Bank president Christine Lagarde wants to borrow more to finance the transition to carbon neutral. Macleod writes darkly:

    As for the euro’s future, it seems unlikely that the ECB has the capability of dealing with the crisis that will unfold.… The deconstruction of this shabby arrangement should prove the end of the euro and possibly of the European Union itself.”

    ”Until production catches up with demand, the innovative Cornell professor suggests that the Fed can counteract the speculation that is driving up those prices with “Open Market Operations,” using its new Chicago Fed trading desk to short them in the market.”

    Excellent analysis!

    It also underscores the STUPIDITY and linear thinking of the neocon ruling class. Yeah, good luck stopping a multi-polar world from emerging! Instead of obsessing over Germany-Russia trade and fighting an unwinnable war, why not make sure the new multi-polar regime is favorable?

    That same neocon class has been supportive of the EU, which has sapped economic juices out of Italy and France in favor of that same Germany for example. Each of the two is not that much smaller than Germany and they are much bigger together, so why not encourage them to reclaim their sovereignty? Also, there is no reason why Russia and the US cannot be allies. There are many areas of conflict between the interests of Germany and Russia, for example in the Balkans, where the US has consistently been anti-Serbian and on Germany’s side. Why? And let’s not forget countries like Poland or Hungary that do not want to be dominated by either Russia or Germany, won’t they always WANT external partners?

    As far as the dollar, the same neocon class has encouraged the US to assert its right to go after any bank or institution that uses our currency in any capacity. For example, French banks have seen multi-billion dollar fines for daring to or failing to stop a couple of transactions with Iran. Well, if you don’t want the world to start looking for an alternative currency, you don’t do that. And now we are supposed to fight a war in Ukraine because these lunatics failed to get that?!

  328. Excellent article.
    The focus of our foreign policy should have been economic ties with Germany. As it is, they can see the handwriting on the wall, and will ‘sell out’ to the best deal for them, which is Russia and China.
    The US can continue slaughtering people and “making the world safe for democracy” (ie, American-backed dictators) in Latin America and Africa, but they can no longer be an effective bully against grown-up countries. Obama/ Biden/ Hillary and the CIA’s machinations in countries like Egypt, Honduras and Ukraine, where elected leaders were overthrown by American-backed authoritarians, might keep the lids on these ‘boiling pot’ countries for awhile, but trade and resources have shifted to Russia and China, and the US offers no incentives to continued partnership. For a while there will be two spheres (US, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand) based on the petro dollar, police state, nukes and military forces, and China/Russia and their Silk Road/ BRICS initiative based on trade and improved infrastructure. Everyone else will be satellites, initially conservatively within the US’s sphere, but eventually inevitably moving under the China/ Russia umbrella. Germany can join (and dominate) the new system, or continue like the UK and France as an American poodle.

    Oh right, I forgot about your lower-tier comprehension. I use the term “merchant” for your caste. While I remembered you would have no idea what I’m talking about, I forgot that even the next tier down is beyond you. Excuse me.

    There are three kinds of dominance hierarchy: physical, intellectual, social. Called warriors, scholars, and merchants, under the trifunctional hypothesis. You are clearly a merchant pretending to be a scholar. Attempted social dominance, hence socialite.

    This is a very common Fascist thing. Another synonym: Sophists. Actual scholars eviscerate Sophists, so Sophists like to fill colleges with merchants and displace all the scholars. The merchants then make up a game that looks vaguely scholarly. It’s not like they can tell the difference.

    “Economically displaced,” yes, I think we all understand you’re a lowbrow prole. I suppose that’s where the insecurity comes from as well: the lack of security. This also confirms your radical egalitarianism, your politics of narcissism, aka Fascism or Communism.

    Tip: life is a lot more comfortable if you know your place and stay in your lane. At the very least, egalitarians shouldn’t go around trying to get one up on others. You attack yourself before you attack anyone else.

    “Lowbrow prole”. Oh how clever. My paternal grandfather was a bit of a rebel and left the ancestral estate in Vestre Toten, Norway at the age of 16, wishing to go to America to join up with his elder brother, who had blown away his “Bonder” inheritance of perhaps one of the largest pieces of tillable acreage in Norway. The elder brother had romantically fallen in love with the milkmaid and that happened to be a no-go with the Pater Familias”, very traditional in his ways.

    The family had held that extremely desirable piece of farmland since time immemorial. That estate is still in the clan and enjoys close connexion with even more well to do relatives in Ostre Toten. One of my grandfather’s nieces from that line became private secretary to King Haakon and fled among the Royal suite to England upon the German invasion in April of 1940. After their return to Norge, the king granted her a fine flat in easy walking distance to his Kongslot in Oslo.

    The second elder brother attended some of the best universities in Germany for years in the latter 19th Century, becoming a very prominent civil engineer, as one of the designers of New York’s first subway system, followed by a stint in New Orleans as one of the designers of the then world’s largest sugar refineries. In ’04 or thereabouts he returned to his native land where he became chief civil engineer bridge designer for the nation in 1914, in which position he remained until the German occupation in 1940. He had heavily invested in timberlands, which were essentially stripped bare by occupation forces during the war years.

    In part because of this, one of his nephews, joined the resistance, which was particularly active and successful in the Gjovik and Lillehammer districts. Surviving the war, he ultimately became the proprietor of the family lands, which his son holds to this day.

    Lowbrow prole indeed. You query as to “where did the Vikings go”. Evidently you are not much conversant with British history. Strange, that.

    Descended from Viking settlers in Northumbria, George Washington was quite openly proud of that heritage. In all truth, though, far more of the Norsemen settled in Scotland and Ireland. Such names as Macauley, McManus, McLachlan and McIvor are of Norse stock. Hrolof det Ganger, known to the French as “Rollo”, with a fleet of Norse and Danish “Langskips” made their way up the Seine and forced the French king to hole-up on Ile de la Cite’.

    Ultimately, that man wised up and made Hrolof and the boys an offer they could not refuse, possession of that land which became quite famous on 6-6-44, stretching from the north bank of the Seine to Cherbourg on the Cotentin Peninsula—the Duchy known as Normandy. Guillaume le Batard, a descendant of Hrolof, decided that he should become the king of England and defeated Harold the Saxon at Hastings in 1066.

    Hrolof likely was a very distant relative as he was a native of the More- Nord Romsdalen “amt”–the birthplace of my maternal grandfather. In Norway, in relative low-population districts, most everyone had some cousinship status with most everyone else. Also, in that bloodline, the tracing goes back only to the 1590’s to a Lutheran churchman who had come out of Skone in what is now southern Sweden. His surname was Ritter, indicating descendance from the knightly class. The bits of Germanic ancestry in that family line happened to include “Von” prefixes for their surnames.

    It really is unfortunate that the tongue-twisted English at the time were unable to pronounce the Danish name Cnut. Poor sods called him Canute. He was king of England as well as Denmark. You see, the northeastern half of England has long been known as the Danelaw, as opposed to Saxon legal traditions south and east of Watling Street.

    The Scottish islands are thick with Norse ancestry as is the Isle of Man, a British possession in the Irish Sea. Even Wales. A rather small Norse settlement was located in Glamorganshire.

    The answer is, they don’t. They are being pushed to invade because America and its allies are tone deaf about Russia’s very real security concerns. The Western powers simply cannot see their point of view, or refuse to see their point of view. That makes the West the real threat in the world, at the goading of the United States. The U.S. is the tail wagging to dog, and anybody going along with that filthy regime will be on the wrong side of history, when all is said and done.

But the left hates Trump so much they had to undo everything they could as fast as they could, even though it did not make sense. Trump Derangement Syndrome destroyed any common sense or reasoning ability they had.

    One reason that the installed administration is beating the war drums is make it look like Biden is strong and try to improve his favorability and cover for Afghanistan. Watch. As soon as Russia does not invade the legacy media and the administration will start a narrative that Biden has saved the world from thermonuclear war.

    No one has alleged that taking the jabs causes severe adverse reactions in all people. The percentage is fairly small, so far, but is far higher than any prior “vaccine” campaign — several of which were cancelled for far fewer deaths. Neither does it follow that your self-reported vibrant health is a consequence of or was protected by taking the jabs. The vast majority of people infected with covid were asymptomatic or mildly affected, meaning that statistically you too would have experienced nothing worse than a slight cold, if that, even if you hadn’t risked the jabs. Plus, the “vaccine” and boosters you took do not protect you from infection now or in the future as a true vaccine would have done.

    It is also too soon for you to be celebrating dodging the bullet of adverse reactions. There is a very good reason that normal vaccine approval procedures take several years: harmful side effects are often delayed for months or even years. Finally, the right of self-determination in health choices is a fundamental human right even regarding diseases far worse than Covid, and the vast majority of us who refused the jab are just as healthy as you claim to be.

    I sincerely hope you escape harm from your choice to take these experiment injections. I also urge you not to tempt fate by mocking those who preferred not to take the risk or to bow to medical tyranny.

    “when the US was distracted, Putin invade Crimea”
    — Only a person with severe amnesia can mess up the events of 2014 when the US-run putsch in Kiev has regime-changed the democratically elected administration and installed a US puppet selected (on record – listen to “f—k the EU) by a member of the Kagans’ clan of warmongers. The juicy part of the putsch was a cordial collaboration among ziocons and self-proclaimed neonazis (remember Babiy Yar and other cherished Ukrainian places of holobiz?)
    After the putsch, the Crimean population had a referendum that resulted in the reunification of Crimea with the Russian Federation.

    As an assistant secretary of state in 2013 and 2014, Nuland participated in the overthrow of Viktor Yanukovych, Ukraine’s then-democratically elected president. …

    Nuland and the State Department were found to have supported the armed coup against Yanukovych. Most damningly, a leaked February 2014 phone call between Nuland and U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt revealed the two officials handpicking Ukraine’s next government in the wake of Yanukovych’s downfall. “Yats is the guy,” Nuland said at the time, referring to Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who was designated as the new prime minister of Ukraine following Yanukovych’s removal in February 2014.

    Months later, Hunter Biden joined the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings in May 2014. More consequentially for the people of the region, the coup is widely seen to have contributed to regional instability that persists to this day.

    The family of POTUS:

    From May 2014, Burisma Holdings Ltd. was paying Hunter \$83,333 a month to sit on its board, invoices on his abandoned laptop show.

    The US-introduced “democracy on the march” in Ukraine:

    Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm Burisma less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company [to protect his crack-head son Hunter].

    The inclusion of Ukraine in NATO will complete the encirclement of NATO. Russia only knows too well the importance of Land Power. After WW II, Stalin refused to withdraw from Austria. The West placated him by agreeing to let Austria remain ‘neutral’ like Switzerland. The same sort of deal will happen if Russia invades Ukraine! You can’t keep the Bear out of the house, once it enters inside. Operationalisation of Nordstream II can wait for three more years, till this political settlement is reached. Economic interests are always secondary to national security interests. One can smell the British egging on the foolish Ukrainian to take a confrontationist attitude towards the Russians.

    Thank you for your well written, balanced response. I have no problem with most of it, but there is one very serious exception. You say: “the right of self-determination in health choices is a fundamental human right.” It is and … it is not.

    What is the point of, say, a country bumpkin having the fundamental right of self-determination in health choices? What does a country bumpkin or some other ignoramus (I don’t want on purpose to use the appropriate term “moron” anymore) know about viruses, vaccines, and antibodies?

    If, say, smallpox comes back with a vengeance, as it did before, will you demand that a bumpkin have his right of self-determination and that he refuse to get vaccinated? A frightening disease smallpox, isn’t it? And very infectious. A bumpkin can easily infect you or me. So do we still insist that a bumpkin cherish his fundamental right of self-determination and in the process undermine the health of the whole community in which he lives? And how about other deadly viral horrors such as HIV or rabies?

    Sure, sure, vaccines are not perfect. Some people will get sick, and some will even die. Frankly so what? Because what is a better alternative? Mass suffering and mass deaths as a result of non-treatment? Praying to some impotent, man-invented god?

    And where, please, is perfection in nature? We have to be realistic: science, medical science, is not perfect; real science never claims it is perfect. But science is our best hope. We have no reasonable alternative. If the bumpkin wants his freedom to be a bumpkin, then that’s fine as long as his freedom is not a mortal threat to my health.

    Incidentally, it seems that science has eradicated smallpox. Some success, isn’t it?

    Let me quote:

    “One of history’s deadliest diseases, smallpox is estimated to have killed more than 300 million people since 1900 alone. But a massive global vaccination campaign put an end to the disease in 1977—making it the first disease ever eradicated.”

    Your confusions stems from the fact that you are wrong by assuming that the US OK-ed the pipeline and stopped its opposition in May 2021.

    What really happened in May 2021 was that the US waived sanctions on the German CEO of the Russian company laying the pipelines for the NS2 project. And they did this because that CEO is a German national who is a bigshot in the German business community.

    Bottomline, the US did not have the stamina to sanction a German business leader. But the spin given to that weakness was that the pipeline was nearly finished, sanctions were futile, and some more BS. Later in August 2021, new symbolic sanctions were approved and their futility didn’t matter.

    Musing on the possibilities in Ukraine are:

    Will Zelensky attack the Don Bass republics and will Putin become involved and to what extent?

    In 2014 when it seemed that the Ukrainian armed forces would overrun the two breakaway republics of Donetsk and Lugansk and Putin would intervene. He did not openly intervene of course, but Russian influence in the conflict soon began to make itself felt. Russian volunteers supported by the Russian population and covert operations by the Russian forces did become involved – and this was crucial.

    Moreover, the hastily trained and enthusiastic Donbass militias stopped the Ukie advance and surrounded Ukrainian units in what were called ‘cauldrons’ in Ilovaisk and Debaltsevo which forced the Ukrainian army to make hasty retreat. There were elements in the Donbass volunteers who wanted to take the offensive all they way to Mariupol in the southern sector but this was overruled by the Russian government.

    This could easily happen again since both sides have upgraded their military prowess. In this case Russia will use its stand-off artillery and long-range tactical missiles to stop any Ukie victory.

    The Donbass is Russia’s red line. Russia will not openly intervene and NATO will be shown for the paper tiger it always was and still is.

    If what you say is true then all Putin needs to do in order to spoil the American plots against Germany and Russia closer ties is refrain from attacking Ukraine and all will be good and the US will not have a valid argument against Nord Stream 2.

    Thank you in turn, Robert, for your civilized reply. You are confusing the term “fundamental right” with “absolute right.” We each have the fundamental right to life but can rightly be executed for taking another life without justification. Rights must always be balanced against responsibilities, which is the purpose of law and government.

    When the right to life of a populace is balanced against the right to bodily self-determination of an individual the scales tip toward the former — but only when the threat to life is sufficiently grave to justify it, and even then only in proportion to the actual threat. Smallpox, with its 30% fatality rate and invulnerability to other treatment methods, justified the tipping of the scales in favor of a vaccine. Covid 19, with a 1% fatality rate (deliberately inflated for political ends) and cured by numerous easy to produce remedies such as Ivermectin, does not.

    Indeed, when all the dust has settled on this epic “public health” scandal and the extent to which evil oligarchs and their minions like Fauci manipulated us all for their personal enrichment and other nefarious goals is exposed, many of them might very well learn the lesson about the limits of their own fundamental right to life.

    It will doubtless be pointed out that the above rule has been violated several times since 1930. Indeed, it has, and look at the results. Blacks stopped improving their living conditions with the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act (CRA) and so did Whites. Women have been unable to secure stable marriage or households since “no fault” divorce, women’s move to full time employment, and free abortion was mandated (see Alden’s criticism). US business has declined sharply since the Federal decision to support global trade. Civil peace has departed interpretations of the CRA by courts, against the popular will.

    The bureaucracy that could designate people as “country bumpkins”, indeed the political groups that could do so, appear to be South pointing arrows. The COVID-19 affair (which is far from over, see: https://www.zerohedge.com/covid-19/pentagon-responds-dod-whistleblowers-claim-spiking-disease-rates-military-after-covid ) is just another failure of the Devil or “Demonization” method of rule, which is: designate some group as Devil, destroy that group, and all will be well.**

    So, your argument fails on the grounds of theory and experience. It also fails on the grounds of the current situation, one of (to be nice) dire peril for the US Federal Government and the entire US “ruling class”

    ** For those who care about such things, designating Jews as a Devil group has failed badly in the historical record. Worst case was Imperial Spain, 1400s to 1900s. In the 1400s, the Catholic hierarchy had been severely infiltrated by non-Christians who had pretended to convert to Christianity (https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Spanish_Inquisition). The Inquisition was yet another an attempt by a bureaucracy of “experts” to root out yet another Devil group. It was largely successful in its original mission, but “mission creep” extended to rooting out any heterodox view in the general population. The result was a dumb and unimaginative Spain that exhausted and depopulated itself fighting the “religious wars” of the 1500s and 1600s. Spain has never recovered from the Spanish Inquisition. A repetition of that mistake is not anything I would recommend.

    So if Turkey gradually uses those dual citizens (and future immigrants) in Germany and Austria as a way of expanding their culture and influence, even effectively their territory someday, Erdogan is not to blame.

    China is already ahead of Germany (and the rest of Europe) in lots of industries such as high-speed rail, nuclear energy, space, 5G/6G telecommunications, autonomous transportation, GaN semiconductors, hypersonic missiles, fifth-generation fighter jets and information technologies such as HPC, AI, Cloud Computing, IoT, Fintech, Big Data, etc.

    Even in old-fashioned industries such as power generation, China has come up with innovative technologies such as super-critical coal-fired power plants, HVAC systems for tri-generation power plants (Changsha-based Broad), solar energy, wind power, biomass, etc. due to its need for alternative sources of non-oil energy. Due to its world-leadership in physics, chemistry as well as in electrical, mechanical and chemical engineering in the early 20th century, Germany excels in manufacturing industries such as gas autos, machine tools, production equipment, electrical machinery, industrial robotics, etc. as well as process industries such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc. But those are mature 20th industries while China is coming up fast in emerging 21st industries such as service robotics, biotech, carbon materials, nanotechnology, etc.

    In mature industries, the incumbents have only one choice to expand their market share: lower the cost of production by automating their assembly lines and moving them offshore. But in emerging industries, the challengers can gain market share by adding value through technological innovation. German and Japanese auto companies used the first formula to increase their market share in Europe and Asia, respectively, and against US auto companies in North America. By contrast, US tech startups in Silicon Valley used both formulas to dominate global markets, by outsourcing the manufacturing of their tech products while constantly developing innovative technologies.

    China has a very different strategy called ‘Made in China 2025’ which calls for automating its in-country manufacturing industries while integrating them to its in-country distribution networks to serve its in-country domestic markets. In addition, China is betting the farm on its technology industries to drive its infrastructure, manufacturing and services industries which serve its vast domestic market.

    The 5G health risks are for those in the high-band millimeter wave frequencies which require one 5G radio every 500 meters. But most countries use low to mid-band frequencies below 6GHz (which are also used by WiFi and 4G) while the USA uses high-band frequencies above 6GHz. For high-band millimeter wave frequencies used in the USA, 5G health risks will affect residential users living in suburbs as one 5G radio needs to be installed every 500 meters (or 10 to 20 homes) with its MIMO antennas directing the electromagnetic radiation to the user.

    It would make sense for Russia to demonstrate to the whole world – especially to Ukraine and Germany (as it apparently successfully has, without firing a shot) – that the U.S. “government” doesn’t actually give a damn about Ukraine, except to use it as an expendable pawn in its hybrid war against Russia.

    As far as the likelihood of a catastrophic war in Europe is concerned, that’s up to the madmen running the U.S. “government.” If the madmen don’t give up on their Satanic agenda (and it’s quite clear that they won’t) then a catastrophic war is a practically a certainty at some point, and surely Russian leaders understand this.

    For all we know, the Russian government may have already decided to take out the Aegis Ashore missile launchers in Romania and Poland, and it’s just holding off on doing so until it can deploy a few more S-500/550 missile systems, or something like that.

    In the very short term you may be somewhat correct as to the indoctrination of American youth. My counter is that in a longer term this may become relatively meaningless as, in the words of Yeats: “The center cannot hold, mere anarchy is loosed upon the land”.

    Referent here: The majority of these youths are sub-urbanites—meaning that they are readily infected by such memes. My expectation is that as the economy implodes and supply chains diminish; social collapse will rapidly occur in megalopoli and even in rather largish cities. The wiser ones among that mass of displaced peasants will smell the coffee even before the brewing process has begun and will do their best to relocate to less insane venues.

    If you are not acquainted with rural and small-town America, it may be instructive that there is still some sense of community in those places. Upshot of that is that people will come together in networks of mutual support. In “Flyover Country” even the indoctrinated youth are far from being hopeless cases as their general social network is far more intergenerational than that of their less fortunate compeers.

    Last time I was in the KSA most new buildings were being built by Chinese companies. Managers were Chinese while workers were the usual mix of small browns from India and Bangladesh.

    Regarding arms purchases, MBS has a plan to reduce imports of weapons and replace them with national production as part of Vision 2030, the national plan for economic diversification. IIRC, MBS has local weapon’s production as one of the few pillars of Vision 2030. I was surprised that arms production was taking such a big role when I looked at Vision 2030.

Any resistance from Ukrainian forces will be seen as a “provocation” and require that he unleash his forces against the “aggressor”.

    That’s a fair point as far it goes, WC. But we need to know at least two things.

    First, what portion of the German citizenry have a steady benefit/income guaranteed by the federal government or other source?

    Second, how does the government calculate the inflation rate they use to quantify the annual increase in benefits? The US government, for example, uses a highly inaccurate measure of inflation that they trumpet as the “headline” rate — and it excludes food and housing! They know that almost nobody will investigate and discover the accurate rate of inflation with those things included.

    Ask Social Security beneficiaries (mostly retirees) whether their benefits have kept up with the true rate of increase in the rents, food prices, home heating/cooling prices, vehicle gas prices, and other unavoidable prices they pay in daily life.

    We could also ask government and corporate employees who receive “cost of living adjustment” (COLAs) when’s the last time your COLA consistently kept up with the rising prices you pay every day? Has it EVER kept up? My sibling who’s a fed employee received zero COLA for 4 years and since then has never once received a COLA that kept up with an honestly calculated inflation rate.

    So we’ll have (1) a massive number of German citizens who do not have even the promise of enough guaranteed income to live decently, and (2) a group of German citizens who are “guaranteed” enough to live decently but can easily be driven down into a lower and lower standard of living by COLAs that let them fall behind inflation inexorably.

    In any event, who pays to fund COLAs for government beneficiaries, retirees or otherwise? Taxpayers. Either up front through higher taxes, through reduced benefits/programs for them elsewhere, or through higher prices that corporations will impose to cover any increase in corporate income tax. So even if Germany increases those guaranteed incomes enough to cover the true rate of inflation, taxpayers and consumers (including the recipients of the guaranteed income) will take the hit to pay for THAT.

    Moreover, when a government uses a measure of inflation that systematically understates the true increase in rents and prices, taxpayers get pushed into a higher bracket even though they are already worse off than the previous year in terms of purchasing power / standard of living.

    It still appears that most German citizens, and likely just about all German citizens, will feel the pain from energy price increases. Germany, or whichever hateful vengeful anti-German or anti-white bigots are determining German policy, has shot itself in the foot by closing nuke power plants and coal mines without having an affordable replacement source ready (let alone having adequate domestic replacement energy sources ready).

    If Germany continues to abet US provocation, insult, military encirclement, and sanctioning of the Russian people and this results in a completely unnecessary war that destroys or suspends operation of Nordstream 2, they will be shooting themselves in the other foot, or worse.

    God bless peace-loving people everywhere. For our part, our family is glad to tell any Russians reading here that we think that they and their interests and culture deserve respect just like ours, and we consider them to be kindred people we are glad to trade with and work together with.

    Apparently your reply should be construed as “Russia is ‘weak’ economically.” Okay, but to the extent this may or may not be true, it’s largely irrelevant to the issue of a Russian attack on Ukraine (or any other country for that matter) because if Russia does attack any country, it will be only because it is forced into doing it as a matter of defending its legitimate and vital national security interests.

    And because it’s irrelevant I’m not going to waste much time debating it, especially with a consummate moron like you.

    …they don’t have any big companies…

    Of course they have some “big” companies.

    Know any Russian CPU producers?

    Know any U.S. companies that can make a useful air-defense system or a hypersonic missile?

    What technologies do they produce?

    Sarmat, Zircon, Kinzhal, Kalibr, Oniks, S-500, S-400, Krasukha-4, etc. There’s a reason why countries like Turkey and India are buying Russian S-400 systems, for example, rather than U.S. made garbage. And if it wasn’t for U.S. “government” coercion, Russia would probably be the biggest exporter of conventional weaponry rather than in second place behind the U.S.

    What do they have to offer anyone other than energy?

    Wheat, iron, steel, titanium, copper and other metals, cost-effective weapon systems, fertilizers, etc.

    Right nothing, now imagine they attack Ukraine and are banned from exporting even that, no wonder they didn’t.

    Yo shit for brains, Russia will only attack Ukraine if it is forced to do so in defense of legitimate and vital national security interests – in which case sanctions won’t deter it. Capisce?

    “It would make sense for Russia to demonstrate to the whole world – especially to Ukraine and Germany (as it apparently successfully has, without firing a shot) – that the U.S. “government” doesn’t actually give a damn about Ukraine, except to use it as an expendable pawn in its hybrid war against Russia.”

    That’s an interesting post.

    One of the fundamentals of pilpul is to always have contempt for your opponent, who has to be regarded as a fool to be distracted from rational argument. This contempt usually shows up as insults, quite frequently to the opponent’s ability to understand rational argument. Not any specific rational argument, but a sort of vague, fuzzy “argument in general”. The tell is use of “moron”, “retard”, “idiot”, etc., quite often matched with sexual and scatological terms. The objective is to demonstrate social dominance over one’s opponent, claim that this humiliation shows a generally superior connection to reality which implies that the humiliator is correct in his assertion, and also (secondarily) threaten the audience with asserting social dominance over each of them individually.

    Harold Smith has replied to reality reporter (note the implied claim of privileged access to reality in “reality reporter”) using a modified pilpul, in which the contempt is for reality reporter’s failure to have any access to reality or to rational organization of facts, and reliance on rhetorical fallicies and lies, e.g. “As usual, you misrepresent the situation, you idiot.”.

    Moreover, Harold Smith manages to do this while successfully presenting a rational and fact based argument. This is a very unusual achievement, and could be a model of serious reply to pilpul.

  475. We must not follow the policies of the warmongers in the US, including the “defense” industry, neocon “democratic nation builders,” elite globalists, and unipolar thinkers of all stripes.

    The Nordstream 2 pipeline is none of our business. It makes good economic sense for greater Europe. The Ukraine issue has nothing to do with the pipeline. We know this.

    Why do we persist in stirring up trouble across the world? That question is too complex to attempt to answer in a short comment. But I think it can be summarized as the enduring efforts of the global (in former times, national) elites to maintain and enhance their perceived entitlement to all the world’s property (tangible and intangible).

    It is not ironic that the US and its reluctant partner, NATO, are meeting in Munich today (without Russia) to discuss the Ukraine issue. It is planned this way to draw an erroneous analogy to the notorious meeting between Britain and Germany in an attempt to stave off the second world war.

    The alleged expansionism of Russia — though similar to historical German claims in Czechoslovakia – is in reality Russian reaction to US and NATO expansion and placement of weapons up to the Russian border despite their promises to the contrary when the USSR collapsed into its constituent nations. Under these circumstances, the removal of nuclear and other offensive weaponry placed by the US and NATO in eastern European countries from 1997 as requested by Russia is a reasonable proposal to enhance the security of all of Europe, including Russia.

    There is no wonder that Russia would be concerned with its security with having an organization like NATO pushed right up to its border in the same way the US would not tolerate having what it regards as an unfriendly power located on its border. It is baffling that the US cannot agree with Russia that neither NATO nor Russia would have nuclear missiles placed in territories outside of their own national boundaries for potential offensive purposes.

    Placing such weapons within the boundaries of former eastern European countries that were under the sphere of influence of the USSR, in the same way western European countries were under the influence of NATO in the United States, is certainly a territorial threat to Russia. Empty US promises that such weapons would never be used for offensive purposes really is unbelievable.

    We had a great opportunity to befriend Russia and welcome it into the international community when the Soviet Union was dismantled in 1989 to 1990. The US bungled this opportunity as it has done in so many foreign misadventures before and since then.

    Essentially, it says that US forces have practiced counterinsurgency (and occupation duty) for the past 20 years or so, and now are neither trained nor equipped to engage in conventional warfare. It’s an old military adage that “if you don’t train for it, you can’t do it”. Neither the troops nor the logistics nor the medical support have trained for conventional war for two decades at least. Conventional war was supposed to be impossible in a nuclear age.

    In short, DOD is in the same situation as the British Army just before WW I. Its government hadn’t fought a conventional war with Continental armies for about a Century. Balance of Power theory said that the UK would never fight a Continental Army; the UK was supposed to pay Continental allies to fight on the Continent. The British Army relied on élan and discipline, but were essentially light infantry. Put up against machine guns and artillery, the pre-WW I troops melted away, never to return. As Heller said in

    Catch 22

    , where are the Snowdens of yesterday?

    While DOD combat forces could go in, and probably would with General Mark A. Milley running the show, they would not emerge victorious.

Al what matters for them is the damage such a war will inflict on Russian German relations.

    It refers to baseball which a full game is 9 innings, composed of top and bottom halfs. Top half belonging to visiting team; bottom half belonging to home team. If by the end of the top half of 9th inning, the visiting team score exceeds the home team score, the home team then has to play the bottom half to try to score at least 6 runs to win! If home team only scores 5 points and ties the score, the game goes into overtime! Heavy odds against both scenarios! But, especially 6 runs! However, it can be done! And, if you’re for the winning team, it is an especially exciting game to watch!

    Poland and Ukraine stand to lose if Germany can get gas without paying transit fees to them.

    The reason why the United States has been opposed to the new pipeline project is because so many European countries have opposed it from the outset and requested American support in their determined opposition. This basic fact shows how simplistic the main theme of this article really is.

    One of the reasons for the Nordstream 2 project was the proven unreliability of Ukraine as a transit country for gas due to its corrupt politics. So it is obvious that Ukraine would be opposing this project. However, six years ago nine other countries also went on record against it.

    https://www.brookings.edu/blog/order-from-chaos/2019/04/22/nord-stream-2-a-failed-test-for-eu-unity-and-trans-atlantic-coordination/

    Nord Stream 2: A failed test for EU unity and trans-Atlantic coordination

    The Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, the Slovak Republic, Romania, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Croatia––all highly dependent on Russian gas––signed a petition against Nord Stream 2 in March 2016, highlighting the risks for energy security in Central and Eastern Europe.

    Aside from the nine countries cited in the quote above from Brookings, Italy would also have reasons for opposing it because it would lose revenue from gas shipments to Germany from its port in Trieste. Likewise, the Netherlands would lose revenue based on its shipments to Germany from its liquefied natural gas (LNG) port in Rotterdam. Germany does not have its own LNG port facility, nor is it planning to build one.

    This already adds up to at least a dozen countries, along with the German Green Party, which also opposed German reunification in 1990. If Germany kicked out NATO (specifically US and British bases), became fully sovereign and declared neutrality, it is likely that surrounding countries would request NATO to stay.

    I thought that somebody would have pointed that out by now in this thread (the reason why I initially addressed a different issue). This pipeline episode highlights the perennial disunity in Europe deriving from different interests and historical rivalries. It goes to show how unpopular Germany, with its moralistic self-righteous attitudes under Merkel, has been regarded by many of its neighbors. The situation has certainly not improved under the new Scholz regime. However, all European countries are now strongly united in their resistance to Russia’s disregard for international law, currently on display by its aggressive military stance and presumptuous demands.

    If all these dozen countries mentioned above had determinedly supported the Nordstream 2 project, it is highly doubtful that the United States would have opposed it. There is certainly no evidence to the contrary, so a conjecture would be overly fanciful. Hence, the content of this article is entirely misguided.

    Vladimir Vladimirovich was for long time in Dresden and Madame Merkel also came from that same region.

    Balderdash. Merkel was born in Hamburg in West Germany and grew up in East Berlin. Her family were among the East German elite and even enjoyed the rare privilege of being able to visit the West at will. Dresden is located in a different corner of East Germany. Its people were shaped by a different history and even speak a noticeably different form of German.

    That said, it may be that Putin and Merkel did forge something of a personal rapport. They each speak the other’s language at a decent level, and had worked in their countries’ secret services.

    I think there is a point you are still missing and that is that This is Not About Ukraine But About Tearing Russia and Germany Apart.

    Thanks for the thoughtful reply. I agree that destroying a nascent Russia/Germany alliance might well be a goal in this US exercise. If so, it I believe that such destruction would actually be against long term US interests.

    US policy since the Bush presidencies could be thought of as a failed attempt to dominate Asia. It is difficult for me to see the invasion of Afghanistan (“graveyard of Empires” even before the US invasion) in any other light. While I am not a professional in this area, the situation at the time of the Afghanistan/Iraq invasions is similar to that of pre-WW I, in which at least two Empires thought that they had best declare war before their rivals grew too strong to beat. The two Empires being British Empire and Imperial Germany, and the rivals being Germany (for the British) and Imperial Russia (for the Germans).
    In short, the US was trying to absorb Central Asia into the US system while it still could, thinking to continue extending its control after of more territory later.

    The 2020 Trump agreement to abandon Afghanistan, and the 2021 Biden rout from Afghanistan marked the failure of the above American policy initiative. It also appears to have marked the US abandonment of Asia as a whole, from Indian Ocean to the North Pole and from the Bearing Strait to the Atlantic Ocean.

    The article I cited earlier, https://smallwarsjournal.com/index.php/jrnl/art/us-not-ready-peer-peer-fight-europe , says that the US has only counterinsurgency ground forces. Such forces could be useful only in integration of non-industrialized countries into a global trade network. In the event, US forces have not been useful, they have failed. **
    The failure has been 10 years in the making, and apparently allowed the State Department to decide what to do next. The answer, implemented in some haste, was the AUKUS treaty ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AUKUS ). AUKUS was so important that it was worth offending France into withdrawing its Ambassador to the US for the first time every. IMHO, AUKUS marks a retreat of the US from a Continental Asia strategy to Mackinder’s Oceanic strategy. Here’s a 2019 article on that subject ( https://www.aei.org/articles/mackinders-nightmare-part-two/ author calls Continental Strategy being “forward committed”)

    OK, so assume that the US is now an Oceanic power. Mackinder’s theory says that the US will lose as soon as Asia is united. The obvious step for the US is to encourage the formation of EurAsia (Urals to Atlantic) and EastAsia (China to Siberia) as in Orwell’s 1984. EurAsia is essentially Germany + Russia. Ideally, EurAsia and EastAsia contest with each other and give the nuclear Oceanic power time to recover and reorganize.
    That being the case, it is in US interest to encourage a Russian – German alliance. The current inept US maneuvering may actually serve to encourage a Russian – German alliance by disqualifying the US as not agreement capable, thus cutting any remaining US-Asia ties. The US thus gets time for the revolution / reorganization that it badly needs.

    Things are very confused in the US right now. It appears that Pres. Obama successfully destroyed much of the American system, and that Pres. Biden’s staff continues this destruction. US capabilities are minimal, and the population is beginning to realize that it cannot continue to live should current trends continue. This is a time of great change (the 84 year revolution cycle has peaked), and bizarre things can happen.
    For example, there may be intention of the US becoming an Oceanic power, just a series of improvisations. US Government factions may well be attempting to prevent a Russia / Germany alliance, as you say. Too much fog for me to tell.

    “This is commerce, economics. You remember it very well that the problems with Nord Stream emerged not because of Ukraine or any complications with the United States of America, but because the Americans, and first of all the Trump administration, back then decided that Russians have nothing to do on the European market and they [the US] need to supply their liquefied natural gas to the European market. This is how it all started, actually;”

    Good point – The Pentagon is overjoyed to spend billions on a 100,000+ man Ukie military, in order to take Russia out of the Western markets and beyond. It’s hard to say how many are foreign mercenaries but the whole DOD Ukraine is funded by the Pentagon and some Oligarchs, which makes the Uike military a private army. President Putin needs to keep this is mind and forego the brotherly slavic love that seems to hang over his judgement. This will certainly get more Russian troops killed , when he is forced into – what looks like an inevitable situation. Belarus also will be a Nato target that needs to have more missiles and some Nukes deployed on their property close to te Russian border.

President Vladimir Putin reminded Mr Scholz during a news conference following the talks that NATO bombed Yugoslavia in 1999. The Chancellor replied that this was done to prevent a genocide of Kosovo Albanians, and that everything went well, and the region is prospering now. But it is not prospering at all. Kosovo and several other parts of the Western Balkans have become a breeding ground for crime, with terrorists and drug traffickers. Mercenaries are recruited there to fight in the conflicts that are being covertly fomented, including by the United States. According to available information, mercenaries are being recruited in Kosovo, Albania and Bosnia and Herzegovina, including for deployment to Donbass in an attempt to knock Russia off balance.

    Exactly.
    Ukraine is just in the right (in other words, wrong) place for the US to use it to goad Russia.

    The US is trying to create a “no win” scenario where Russia’s options are reduced to two bad choices:
    Do nothing in the face of aggression against Russian ethnics in the Donbass; or Do something in face of aggression against Russian ethnics in the Donbass.

    The US is cynically using all demographic groups in Ukraine as shields and hostages in its game of trying to provoke Russia into stepping on a square on the game board that contains a land mine.

    The evacuation of Russian ethnics into Russia is one way of slightly improving the lose-lose proposition and increasing Russian room to maneuver—both diplomatically and on the ground.

    Agreed, i would add also a point of view that I have been sharing for a decade in many forums, one which is not very popular among Putin’s fans, but that I think has been proven right every step of the way. That Putin’s foreign policy towards the U.S. and NATO has been disastrous for Russia. I have even said that if any of the leaders of the former USSR (specially Stalin or Khrushchev) had the chance to come back to life the first thing they would do is to shot him in the Kremlin courtyard for having surrendered Ukraine without a fight, made even worse by the fact that at the same time he was rather having his ego feast in Sochi. I am sure they would have seen it as high treason, And I”d have to agree with them because me and these two have something in common, we are practical men and have no time for letting us get lost in the hopeless illusion of being loved back by someone who hates us with passion, in their case the so called West, by Germany and the U.S. in particular. As the result of Putin’s unrequited passion for the West the 2000s have been one of the most disastrous periods for for Russian foreign policy face to the West, something concealed only by the lucky coincidence that at the same time that Putin conducts the worst Russian foreign policy in a Century the West is itself in serious trouble, the U.S. struggling desperately to keep its disintegrating empire together, all these troubles routinely being chalked up to Putin’s “masterful foreign policy”. For an entire decade he has subordinate Russian national interest to his own personal agenda, and I may say obsession, of being admitted in the Western European Club. He expects respect and even admiration from them and all he has received is one slap after another in the face. Ukraine 2022 is just the latest instalment in this endless series of indignities. NS2 was born with a Damocles sword hanging over its head and the U.S. in the one who can give the order to let go at any moment, which means a lose’lose situation for Russia, as you said.

    As I said, Khrushchev and Stalin were practical men and in their Putin court martial they would have asked one single question to determine his fate, the same that I ask. “Tell us, mister Putin, how far from Moscow were NATO missiles and installations when yo took power and how far are they now…? That would have decided his fate. A simple question cutting to the cheese, just like Stalin did to stop the West babbling about making the Vatican a part in the club of victors of WW2: and how many divisions the Pope has…? Please, Mr Putin, don”t try to humor us telling us how agreeable chap Mr Macron is, how many inroads you have made with Angela Merkel or how brilliantly you managed to “neutralise” Sultan Erdogan and the guy from Belarus or how soundly you beat the sheet out of the uppity Georgians. None of that is important because there is absolutely no guarantee that any of those supposed victories of your foreign policy will stand. Once again, how far are those NATO troops and missiles launchers now compared to where they were when you took power, that is the question we want answered”.

    There are plenty for all if we reach out to each other and share our knowledge, wealth and loving care.

    A Europe united (even weakly) with Russia would simply be one of two large groups (China’s conglomeration being the other) contesting for resources and trade. Each conglomeration would respect the other’s culture, religion, etc. because it would be physically unable to intervene. Example from the wolf/deer ecology: wolves don’t cull the deer herd rather than drive it to extinction because they can’t drive it to extinction. Same thing with deer culling the wolf pack through wolf starvation. **
    “The so called super powers should step down and stop playing rulers of the world.”
    That’s already happening as we sit here. The US lost influence in Asia with Biden’s Afghanistan rout. Russia is not a super power – it lacks expeditionary forces. Europe is not a superpower – it lacks expeditionary forces and any kind of unity except Germany’s economic dominance. It is also paying a heavy price for NATO membership (https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/steep-cost-sanctions-europe-and-russia), as is the US, which pays for the occupation of Europe.
    China is almost a superpower, but the appears to be in the early stages of failure. Chief of State Xi Jinping appears to have abandoned the two term limit (https://www.aninews.in/news/world/asia/xi-jinping-faces-power-struggle-before-party-congress-202220211103110641/) and appears to have continued the Chinese “capital boom” long past the point of negative returns (search YouTube.com for “China high speed rail”, “China Real estate”, and even “China Belt-and Road”). China’s capital boom is dependent on foreign loans, and has in some important cases been unable to meet repayments in foreign currencies. In short, Xi is reverting to one man rule because China has made so many bad investments and is apparently trying to substitute compulsion for popularity / legitimacy. Rather like the US and Canada, no?

    Nobody is going to fall for that one after the way the People’s Republic of China (PRC) used such reaching out and “sharing our knowledge” to build an aggressive regional power that is now heavily nuclear armed. Moreover, reaching out and “sharing our knowledge” seems only to reduce population fertility to below-replacement and contaminate with industrial waste. Sharing is not an unalloyed good.

    Please consider that, while everybody can agree on the desirability of a much better society than we now have, the problem is finding one. Your “trust and sharing” model is the foundation of the _present_ society, under the founding documents of the United Nations. This model is not working in that the population of every industrial society on Earth has a sub-replacement fertility. Perhaps the “trust and sharing” model is bleeding off too many resources to allow having and raising children? The drafting of potential mothers into the work force may just have been a bad idea; so also might immigration from non-industrialized countries. “Got to be cruel to be kind”?

    The US and UK have had a revolution about each 84 years, as follows:
    1603 Elizabeth I, dies. James Stuart succeeds, destabilizes England/Ireland/Scotland conglomeration which leads to civil war in 1642
    1686: Glorious Revolution in UK. 1688
    1770: Lead up to US revolution, 1776. Inspires French Revolution, which leads to Napoleonic Wars that remade Europe.
    1854: runup to the 1846 US – Mexican war, which eventually led to the US Civil War. US has changed from a defensive alliance of 13 colonies to an offensive alliance that will populate the present Lower 48 States of the US. Close to European revolutions of 1848.
    1939: New Deal consolidates.
    2022: Centralized governments and megacities show signs of instability worldwide, esp. PRC and US. The Russian Federation (RF), which had a revolution forced upon it starting in about 1985 and has already reorganized, is one of the few stable countries on Earth.

    We’re in the midst of a revolution/reorganization. In the same way that Europe abandoned leadership by the Catholic Church in the 1600s, the world is in process of abandoning universal principles of any kind and descending to a distributed system of thoroughly self-seeking organizations. This is about the only way that humanity can survive given nuclear weapons and the descent into decay of centrally controlled economies. Perhaps by giving up the universal principles their promised results will be better provided.
    So it seems likely that Germany and RF will form an alliance, that Eurasia will be a decentralized coalition of trading partners rather than Imperial Russia Version II, and for that matter that China after Xi will retain a weak central government presiding over a collection of provinces, most likely existing within the wreckage of a high speed rail system and hydraulic engineering system that it cannot afford to maintain.

    Disappointing, I know. I’m not too happy about it myself. I also don’t like having a limited life span, but I put up with it rather than pretend I could live forever.

    ** If the wolves reduce the deer population to near extinction, the wolves almost all starve. If the wolf population drops to near extinction, the deer population increases. In fact, this feedback leads to a highly irregular number of deer and wolves, but on a large scale the feedback preserves both deer and wolf. Not necessarily so on an island, though.

    It’s about the Nuland-Kagan wet dream of Gaddafi-ing Putin in Red Square.

    Thanks for the videos.

    I feel much safer in a low-rent, but white neighborhood Walmart than I do in any high-end shopping mall (especially the food courts). In fact, I feel alot safer when I can’t see (or smell) any feral blacks around within a few hundred miles.

    The “Rev.” Jesse Jackson (the “minister” who used to spit in white people’s food & who knows, maybe he still does it) said it best, “There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps… then turn around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”

    Sorry, bud, but the U\$\$A is far more akin to the USSR than contemporary Russia happens to be. Do yourself a favor. Take out your .12 gauge and blow the bejeebers outta your boobtoob. Lacking a steady diet of brainfarts from the talking heads, you may have some chance of recovering control over your own mind.

    So you believe in anything emanating from the Brookings Institution? Do some research on the identities of those who provide funding grants for that institution.
