The future world order, already in progress, will be formed by strong sovereign states. The ship has sailed. There’s no turning back.

Let’s cut to the chase and roll in the Putin Top Ten of the New Era, announced by the Russian President live at the St. Petersburg forum for both the Global North and South.

The era of the unipolar world is over.

The rupture with the West is irreversible and definitive. No pressure from the West will change it.

Russia has renewed its sovereignty. Reinforcement of political and economic sovereignty is an absolute priority.

The EU has completely lost its political sovereignty. The current crisis shows the EU is not ready to play the role of an independent, sovereign actor. It’s just en ensemble of American vassals deprived of any politico-military sovereignty.

Sovereignty cannot be partial. Either you’re a sovereign or a colony.

Hunger in the poorest nations will be on the conscience of the West and euro-democracy.

Russia will supply grains to the poorer nations in Africa and the Middle East.

Russia will invest in internal economic development and reorientation of trade towards nations independent of the U.S.

The future world order, already in progress, will be formed by strong sovereign states.

The ship has sailed. There’s no turning back.

How does it feel, for the collective West, to be caught in such a crossfire hurricane? Well, it gets more devastating when we add to the new roadmap the latest on the energy front.

Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin, in St. Petersburg, stressed that the global economic crisis is gaining momentum not because of sanctions, but exacerbated by them; Europe “commits energy suicide” by sanctioning Russia; sanctions against Russia have done away with the much lauded “green transition”, as that is no longer needed to manipulate markets; and Russia, with its vast energy potential, “is the Noah’s Ark of the world economy.”

For his part Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller could not be more scathing on the sharp decline in the gas flow to the EU due to Siemens’ refusal and/or incapacity to repair the Nord Stream 1 pumping engine: “Well, of course, Gazprom was forced to reduce the volume of gas supplies to Europe by 20%+. But you know, prices have increased not by 20%+, but by several times! Therefore, I’m sorry if I say that we don’t feel offended by anyone, we are not particularly concerned by this situation.”

If this pain dial overdrive was not enough to hurl the collective West – or NATOstan – into Terminal Hysteria, then Putin’s sharp comment on possibly allowing Mr. Sarmat to present his business card to “decision-making centers in Kiev”, those that are ordering the current shelling and killing of civilians in Donetsk, definitely did the trick:

“As for the red lines, let me keep them to myself, because this will mean quite tough actions on the decision-making centers. But this is an area that shouldn’t be disclosed to people outside the military-political leadership of the country. Those who deserve appropriate actions on our part should draw a conclusion for themselves – what they may face if they cross the line.”

Baby please, stop breaking down

Alastair Crooke has masterfully outlined how the collective West’s zugzwang leaves it lumbering around, dazed and confused. Now let’s examine the state of play on the opposite side of the chessboard, focusing on the BRICS summit this Thursday in Beijing.

As much as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), the Eurasia Economic Union (EAEU) and ASEAN, now it’s time for a reinvigorated BRICS to step up its game. In conjunction, these are the key organizations/instruments that will be carving the pathways towards the post-unipolar era.

Both China and India (which between them were the largest economies in the world for centuries before the brief Western colonial interregnum) are already close and getting closer to “the Noah’s Ark of the world economy”.

The G20 – hostages of the Michael Hudson-defined FIRE scam that is the core of the financialized neoliberal casino – is slowly fading away, while a potential new G8 ramps up: and that is directly connected to BRICS expansion, one of the key themes of this week’s summit. An expanded BRICS with a parallel G8 configuration is bound to easily overtake the Western-centric one in importance as well as GDP by purchasing power parity (PPP).

BRICS in 2021 already added Bangladesh, Egypt, the UAE and Uruguay to its New Development Bank (NDB). In May, at Foreign Ministry-level debates, Argentina, Egypt, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Nigeria, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Senegal and Thailand were added to the 5 BRICS members. Leaders of some of these nations will be connected to the Beijing summit.

BRICS plays a completely different game from the G20. They aim for the grassroots, and it’s all about slowly “building trust” – a very Chinese concept. They are creating an independent Credit Rating Agency – away from the Anglo-American racket – and deepening a Currency Reserves Arrangement. The NDB – including its regional offices in India and South Africa – has been involved in hundreds of projects. Time will tell: one day the NDB will make the World Bank superfluous.

Comparisons between BRICS and the Quad, a U.S. concoction, are silly. Quad is just another crude mechanism to contain China. Yet there’s no question India treads on tightrope walker territory, as it’s a member of both BRICS and Quad, and made a vastly misguided decision to walk out of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) – the largest free trade deal on the planet – opting instead to adhere to the American pie-in-the-sky Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF).

Yet India, long term, skillfully guided by Russia, is being steered to find essential common ground with China in several key issues.

ORDER IT NOW

BRICS, especially in its expanded BRICS+ version, is bound to increase cooperation on building truly stable supply chains, and a settlement mechanism for resources and raw material trade, which inevitably has to be based in local currencies. Then the path will be open for the Holy Grail: a BRICS payment system as a credible alternative to the weaponized U.S. dollar and SWIFT.

Meanwhile, a torrent of bilateral investments from both China and India in the manufacturing and services sector around their neighbors is bound to lift up smaller players in both Southeast Asia and South Asia: think Cambodia and Bangladesh as important cogs in a vast supply wheel.

Yaroslav Lissovolik had already proposed a BEAMS concept as the core of this BRICS integration drive, uniting “the key regional integration initiatives of BRICS economies such as BIMSTEC, EAEU, the ASEAN-China free trade agreement, Mercosur and SADC/SACU.”

It’s only (BRICS) rock’n roll

Now Beijing seems eager to promote “an inclusive format for dialogue spanning all the main regions of the Global South via aggregating the regional integration platforms in Eurasia, Africa and Latin America. Going forward this format may be further expanded to include other regional integration blocks from Eurasia, such as the GCC, EAEU and others.”

Lissovolik notes how the ideal path from now on should be “the greater inclusivity of BRICS via the BRICS+ framework that allows smaller economies that are the regional partners of BRICS to have a say in the new global governance framework.”

Before he addressed the St. Petersburg forum on video, President Xi called Putin personally to say, among other things, that he’s got China’s back on all “sovereignty and security” themes. They also, inevitably, discussed the relevance of BRICS as a key platform towards the multipolar world.

Meanwhile, the collective West plunges deeper into the maelstrom. A massive national demonstration of trade unions this past Monday paralyzed Brussels – the capital of the EU and NATO – as 80,000 people expressed their anger at the rising and rising cost of living; called for elites to “spend money on salaries, not on weapons”; and yelled in unison “Stop NATO.”

It’s zugzwang all over again. The EU’s “direct losses”, as Putin stressed, provoked by the sanctions hysteria, “could exceed \$400 billion a year”. Russia’s energy earnings have hit record levels. The ruble is at a 7-year high against the euro.

It’s a blast that arguably the most powerful cultural artifact of the entire Cold War – and Western supremacy – era, the perennial Rolling Stones, is currently on tour across a “caught in a crossfire hurricane” EU. On every show they play, for the first time live, one of their early classics: ‘Out of Time’.

Sounds much like a requiem. So let’s all sing, “Baby baby baby / you’re out of time”, as one Vladimir “it’s a gas, gas, gas” Putin and his sidekick Dmitry “Under My Thumb” Medvedev seem to be the guys really getting their rocks off. It’s only (BRICS) rock’n roll, but we like it.

    I enjoy Pepe’s writing but he needs to quit throwing out the names of specific weapons without knowing what they are. The Sarmat is a heavy ICBM that carries up to 60 nuclear warheads and would wipe half of Ukraine off the map. It’s not the type of weapon that’s ever planned to be actually used (outside of an end-of-world scenario), much less for tactical strikes against Kiev.

If not such a bio attack, we will see a military adventure that ends in Armageddon, because of miscalculation and the unconscious psychological forces I have previously detailed. When Trump said “ I love the poorly educated“ he really meant it, manifesting an accepting attitude. U.S. leaders are not capable of being accepting of a second-tier position.

  7. Having a historical perspective regarding the last, oh, five thousand years (since the time of Noah’s Flood…oh, but that never happened, right? But I guess I’m just a dumbass Christian believer in the notion that God is in control…), the fact is over this time frame empires have come and gone approximately ever 400 to 500 years from birth to death, and, more recently, 100 to 200 years from birth to death…the first historical empire being in Africa (Egypt), then middle East (Sumeria/Babylon and later for a short time, ancient Israel until it pissed off God too darned much, then Persia), the the Greeks and then the Romans and then the Byzantines and “Holy Roman Empire” and then the Mongols and then more of Asia…so, from Africa to Middle East southern Europe to Asia (Mongols and Chinese mainly)…to MezoAmerica (Aztecs/Mayans/Incas) until Europe invasions to colonial wars including US etc….and back to Europe incuding Russia…. So, yes (and I am glad of this), the US “empire” (which makes its own reality, so sayeth Karl Rove, I think) is dying, and thank God for that! I hated US imperialism when I was a leftist and I hate US imperialism as an apolitical now. Waaaayyy too corrupt and run by childish idiots!

    But as for Russia/China/whoever “taking over”? So you really think (as PCR used to) “Putin is our savior”? (I’d say it’s Christ, not Putin!)

    And instead of embracing sayings by the Rolling Stones, I’d more likely embrace a saying by the Who: “meet the new boss, same as the old boss.”

    The “decision centers” who control the financial FIRE sector are trying to provoke war with Russia. As per their 200 year history, they want to grab Russia’s natural resources, and profit from the regime change war, using other people’s militaries (OPM).

    They have NO concern for the tragic consequences for the people of Europe, America, Russia, or any other country except Israel. This is because they are Jewish supremacists, who believe that Jews are destined to rule the world from Jerusalem, and all non-Jews are merely livestock, intended by God to be disposed of by supremacist Jews as they see fit.
    War Profiteers and Israel’s Bank
    https://warprofiteerstory.blogspot.com/p/war-profiteers-and-israels-bank.html

    Jimmy Carter has told us the US is living under “an oligarchy of unbridled corruption”. Senator Dick Durbin has said of the US Senate, “the banks own the place”.

    Would these Jewish supremacist bankers actually provoke a war with Russia, with all the death and destruction that would entail?

    They already provoked WWI and WWII as steps in their plan to create the state of Israel.
    From Yahweh to Zion
    https://archive.org/details/from-yahweh-to-zion-laurent-guyenot

    But now they’re getting desperate. They see their efforts at final global dominance collapsing. After moving America’s manufacturing sector to China, expecting they would later take over China’s banking system as they did in the West, they find China blocking their attempt to take over the banking sector. And they see Russia extracting itself from their banking system, also resisting a takeover. China and Russia became aware of the bank takeover plot after reading Currency Wars, which exposed the plot and became a best-seller in China and much of Asia.
    Currency Wars
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Currency_Wars

    And while their final step in taking over China and Russia is failing, their attempt to control the Middle East through their establishment of Israel is failing. The truth about Israel is becoming increasingly well-known. Even Jews in the West are increasingly rejecting the glaringly criminal, Jewish supremacist project of Israel. This is especially true of young Jews, who are the future. So this banking mafia are desperately trying to make criticism of Israel’s crimes and supremacist policies illegal in the West. But this effort will almost certainly run aground on the US Constitution’s First Amendment, which guarantees the right to freedom of political speech. A Supreme Court case on this would put Israel’s treacherous subversion on full public display.

    And while they still own the corporate media, they no longer have an iron lock on information due to the internet. More and more people are awakening to mainstream media as a lying, propaganda monopoly. And people are seeing the desperate efforts to censor speech on the internet, at YouTube, Google, and Facebook. So the Supremacist mafia bosses are losing their former control of the information front.

    At the same time, their banking scams in America are drawing more attention and criticism. People are starting to realize that those trillion dollar “relief” payments to Wall Street have been giant scams. And eventually those scams will be connected to their war profiteering scams.

    And the internet is also letting more and more people find out about their subversive attacks on the USS Liberty and 9/11, and their subversive assassination of president John F. Kennedy for standing up to them. And their subversive assassination of Robert F. Kennedy to prevent his directing a real investigation into his brother’s murder.

    So they’re desperate, and would welcome the desperate distraction of a catastrophic war in Europe. They probably even plan to make money from it.

    We need to swarm and shame the politicians and press who are betraying their countries to serve the evil agenda of these monsters.

    “U.S. leaders are not capable of being accepting of a second-tier position. ”

    But who are the USA leaders in fact? Did not USA leaders happily send USA manufacturing overseas and south of the border, in order to fatten Wall Street profits via cheap labor?

    If you agree, then let’s ask ‘Who is Wall Street’? Isn’t Wall Street an international globalist class of investors?

    If you agree, then we come together to my point: Won’t the international globalist class, including USA investor elites at Vanguard and Blackrock, simply go with the flow of money and invest in the economies of Russian, China, and the various ‘BRICS+’ emerging economies? Why would they NOT do this? They are like the swarming seagulls who follow the fishing boat into harbor as the fisherman throw out the scrap: they follow the smell of profits wherever it leads, they have no loyalty to a nation state, they will suck the USA DRY via the Pentagon System, and then FLY on their private jets to other sources of wealth.

    So, why should the current USA leaders CARE if the USA is a second tier power?????

    Finally.

    Russia has renewed its sovereignty. Reinforcement of political and economic sovereignty is an absolute priority.

    Putin has decided to finish his career on a high note. The best thing he has done so far – ironically, it’s a war.

    Russia will invest in internal economic development and reorientation of trade towards nations independent of the U.S.

    He had to start a war to force those son of a bitches to begin thinking about the country they live in, those bastards wouldn’t start doing anything otherwise.

    China is under sanctions also, but they are successfully replacing Taiwan and have begun manufacturing their own chip making machines. One expert said, in three-four years they will probably achieve full parity with Taiwan, and even with the Netherlands, making everything in-house.

    Russia will be fine.

    The ability of China to get things done is nothing short of amazing. Not only they are very smart but they have that work ethic no other nation in the world can match. And none of that would be possible without China.

    And here is the most interesting part.

    While Russia is capable of putting the West in a choke hold, if China takes Taiwan it may be a touch of death.

  23. While the long term signs look interesting, I would be wary of premature triumphalism.

    The US/UK/EU have some very resourceful people, albeit in a dreadful cause. We’ve seen in the last week new US missiles hitting the Snake Island resupply vessels and individual areas of the island. How this plays out is yet to be seen, but it’s possible they could render the island useless as a base. Similarly new missiles have damaged gas installations in the Black Sea.

    The US just opened a new front with the ban on transit traffic to Kaliningrad, the main Russian Baltic naval base. Again, how this plays out is yet to be seen.

    Arms deliveries to Rzeszow in Poland recommenced after a shortish hiatus (2 weeks?) when Russian missiles struck a rail tunnel in the Carpathians on June 1st. I can’t understand why Russia haven’t done more attacks like this – maybe they can’t? Every rail line into Ukraine from Poland/Hungary/Slovakia/Romania should have been cut by now, why aren’t they?

    Indeed Ukrainian transport planes are still using Ushhorod Airport occasionally, and Ukrainian airports haven’t been (AFAIK) effectively denied, as Ukrainian close support Su25s are still operating.

    The US/UK/EU are still pulling out all the stops with electronic eavesdropping – on any given day there are half a dozen sophisticated spy planes/drones patrolling the Black Sea and the borders of Ukraine, plus satellites. All this data will go to Ukraine. Indeed, while brave Slav infantrymen on both sides are killing each other (a tragedy), the missile war almost seems to be the US handing over the missiles then telling the Ukrainians what co-ordinates to enter – for all I know they’re aiming and firing them remotely from Langley or Croughton.

    There are reports of isolated guerilla action in places like Kherson, where 2 soldiers were allegedly murdered in a cafe. Civil wars are the nastiest wars.

    On our home fronts, signs of dissent about people’s impoverishment go unreported. I don’t know how long our elites can keep the lid on, but they’re doing well so far, and it’s even got some benefits for them in their struggle to replace the Native Brits.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/jun/21/record-number-of-abortions-in-england-and-wales-amid-financial-insecurity

    A record number of abortions took place in England and Wales last year in a trend experts said was driven by financial uncertainty caused by Covid-19.

    There were 214,869 terminations during 2021, the highest number since the procedure became legal in Great Britain through the 1967 Abortion Act, the latest annual abortion statistics published on Tuesday show. Numbers have been going up every year since 2016.

    So the picture’s not yet a vista of broad sunlit uplands – not by any means.

    But even the deluded who think there are several autonomous centres of power must admit, if they are intellectually honest, that multipolarity does no good when everyone commits the same atrocities. Wondering whether there is one gang or more gangs of criminals fighting each other is ultimately useless when they are all injecting you with poison and taking away your humanity.

Of course LaRouche warned the west of its madness and plummet into hell, but the criminal establishment continued to block LaRouche’s warnings, with the Democrat National Committee silencing those states and the candidate they nominated in 2004 for President, LaRouche.

    The issue is the same: Attend to promotion of the physical economy; put the Fed into Bankruptcy and Launch a new National Infrastructure Bank, build NAWAPA to bring water to the west and rebuild the nation’s cities and small numerous farms.

    Why not? The US regime said they used nuclear strikes on Japan to save US soldiers lives, why waste Russia soldiers lives when a strike on Kiev will end the war.

    There were multiple motivations for the use of nuclear weapons on Japan:
    1. The saving of US lives, as you say.

    2. The saving of Japanese lives. On Okinawa, the military fought until death, and even the civilian population committed suicide rather than surrender. Okinawa was 110k dead. For the Japanese mainland, start the bidding in the millions. A few hundred thousand killed by nuclear weapons is a bargain.

    3. Rather than invade, it was possible to try to wait Japan out, but that had two costs:
    i. Japan had considerable external territory where they were brutal: sex slaves, using infants for games involving bayonets, mass rapes of civilian population. Freeing those people quickly is a non-trivial benefit.

    ii. The Japanese people were on the edge of mass starvation. Waiting increased the odds of a mass civilian die off.

    I’m no fan of US imperialism, but to compare the two situations is appalling.

  54. Russia will invest in internal economic development and reorientation of trade towards nations independent of the U.S.

    The U.S./West no doubt are careening towards an inevitable train-wreck, and Pepe describes Russia as an economic juggernaut waiting to happen. However, based on Russian domestic history, that is mostly an illusion driven by Pepe’s contempt for the West and the probable checks he gets from Moscow to be a front.

    Regardless of the optimistic future for Russia that Pepe describes, all of the domestic bureaucratic stupidity and corruption that existed in Russia before it decoupled from the West will still be there after Russia does decouple completely from the West.

    Putin himself has often railed against the systemic economic, judicial and regulatory malfeasance and stupidity inside of Russia. But even after being in power for 22 years, Putin has not demonstrated that he as the political leverage to attack and tame the dysfunctional forces that destine Russia to remain a low level economic power apart from its cash-cow commodities.

    In other words, a huge Russia government investment in internal economic development will as usual probably yield only modest benefits after the corrupto-crats take their cut. After Russia completes its decoupling from the West, it will still look like Russia.

Also, China’s lockdowns etc. have not destroyed it’s economy unless you believe the Western rating agencies which lie.

So removing those Russian Oligarchs is the first step to reducing if not eliminating systemic graft and corruption in Russia, making it economically independent of the West. Putin’s Russia today is far better than Yeltsin’s Russia but Putin didn’t go far enough in purging Russia of its Oligarchs with ties to the West.

    The ruling classes of Western European nations have also used the EU to hide their sovereignty-sapping designs from their own nations.

    Tony Blair’s 1997 push for mass immigration was made in the context of English sovereignty being “shared” or “pooled” with the EU. Tony Blair’s attack on English cultural integrity using mass immigration as a demographic weapon was sold as just part of globalization or EU business as usual.

    Smart people understand that the European Central Bank and the euro currency were designed to create asset bubbles in Europe that would buy off certain voting blocs that would keep their greedy mouths shut about the mass immigration underway in Europe.

    Instead, “How this country/nation LOST all, squandered all those……..” are already being answered. All you have to do, is to seek our real economists, such as Dr. Hudson, and possibly Steve Keen who are telling you what is happening right now.

    So, start with the premise that the entire US Fire Sector is made up of folks who have one purpose in Life: making Profit is LIFE.
    Fire Sector:
    F: US financial centers: The Fed/Big Banks/Hedge Funds, etc.
    I: Insurance: medical, auto, home
    RE: Real Estate: real estate corporations, Billionaires who build huge rentals, tracs of homes, corporate office buildings, etc.

    All those riches, in turn becomes political and economic power. They buy off all the politicians in most nations, which in turn forces each nation to lower standards of living, making those populations become pauperized.
    Basically, the decline of the US has EVERYTHING to do with the sociopathic greed of these predators.

    Technology always has terrific excuses and always creates terrible outcomes. It is unreasonable to manufacture knifes and expect that no one will use them to kill. Likewise it is unreasonable to expect that powerful technology will not be used for powerful destruction. We can live with knives, we cannot live with gene editing.
    Moreover, technology is not neutral because it modifies our environment therefore our behaviour. Daily use of Tv and “smart” phones has wrecked more destruction upon our societies than all the ICBMs stored in vaults. As Nicolas Gomez Davila wrote,
    “Modern man destroys more when he builds, than when he destroys.”
    The worship of technology is what has made our world so inhospitable and literally lethal for many of us and our natural habitat. Unfortunately it is an addiction bound to stay until self-destruction, as the ruling class will never rein in the tools that make it powerful and keep the masses entertained and dependent.

    Putin himself has often railed against the systemic economic, judicial and regulatory malfeasance and stupidity inside of Russia. But even after being in power for 22 years, Putin has not demonstrated that he as the political leverage to attack and tame the dysfunctional forces that destine Russia to remain a low level economic power apart from its cash-cow commodities

    Bravo – this is an absolutely critical and brilliant point – and continually overlooked by the West, and even most of the more knowledgeable commentariat here. But as Antibeast has pointed out in his comment, many of the worst of the pre-Putin problems were caused – or certainly massively worsened – by the ((( billionaire oligarchs ))) who raped Russia blind under Yeltsin. Though that specific problem has been removed, the fact is that even Putin himself doesn’t quite appear to understand on what level the game is being played – or exactly how far he really HAS TO go, to right the ship for the future. As a perfect example, the fat, greasy billionaire Jew racketeer Kholomoisky – sponsor, mentor and probably bum-chum of Zelenskiyy – who defrauded a private Russian bank on a barely-believeable scale – only travelled as far as Ukraine when his assets were seized by Putin and he was booted out of Russia. Instead, after kicking the cockroach out and setting up a State Trust fund to use his assets to pay back thousands of defrauded Russian citizens, Putin should have done the very easiest thing at the right time – by sending a small squad after him into Ukraine to put a bullet in his head. That would also have sent a very sweet lesson to the rest of them.

    Don’t forget that Putin FAILED in 2014 when the illegitimate puppet administration was installed – which was exactly the RIGHT time to take the RIGHT steps to maintain control in Ukraine by moving immediately and decisively to protect Donbass and telling the whole world why. Kholomoisky’s Azov Battalion would never have existed – and that would have made this year’s military disaster unnecessary.

    In a very real sense, Putin in some ways is actually simply too hopeful – too NICE – to do fully and completely in Russia what SHOULD be done – to cut off the head of the serpent once and for all. Unfortunately, as with very many things, you rarely get a second chance.

  104. It’s no wonder we are defeated when our masters tell us what they want to do, proceed to do it and still a “highly informed” news blog think a good thing just happened.

    The Western Elites are not “The West”. They live here, sometimes, and they squeeze money from the place while lording over their subjects. All these “independent states” got similar, usually worse, schemes going on. This has not changed and there is no indication it is going to change.

    China is not an independent nation. They are members of the UN, WHO, WTO you name it. Why would any self respecting nation subject itself to these corrupt and hostile organizations? Do you see Adolf Hitler being a WTO member? Do you seem him allowing Jewmerican movies glorifying niggers do be played in theaters?

    “Oh, they’re just playing along, being smart!” Yeah injecting your citizens with Jewa Juice and allowing globohomo propaganda to take hold is a great way of just playing along. Even big bad Putin allows gays. And of course Jews, he loves Jews. Everybody loves Jews. That always ends well does it not?

    Chinese Elites obviously made a deal so they could gain access to world markets and stuff their bellies. The other end of the deal is not money, it is globohomo. Whether they know it or not. Just a matter of easing it in. As long as Western gold flows to China, the cultural degeneracy will flow with it.

    What we have seen played out since 1945 is basically the plot of Orwell’s 1984. Three major power blocks in constant alliance and conflict to preserve a never ending emergency of State. We’ve always been at war with Russia. And we’ll always be at war with China. This is mutually beneficial for all parties involved.

    The Covid hoax was spearheaded by China and actively supported by Russia. Now Russia is being used as a pretext to squeeze our pockets again. What great luck that glorious Putin should come in and make the situation worse when that is exactly what the Western Elites are also trying to do. Likewise it’s just a coincidence when China shuts down major ports because of “Covid” so the economic congestion can be further escalated in line with Jewish plans.

    Maybe all of this is good for Putin and Xi, and obviously it’s good for the Jews, and to be honest I don’t see guys like Rothschild, Gates or Schwab suffering all that much either. Smugness is what I see, but I guess they are just deluded and dumb, right? Totally outmaneuvered by Captain Vladimir and Emperor Xi and made into a Stan Lee story.

    What we do know is that none of this has been any good for you and me.

  105. Ohhh good grief,

    nothing like a strawman adopted as truth.

    The definition of Unipolar world: “A unipolar world is one in which a single state acting unilaterally with little or no cooperation from other states can effectively resolve major international issues, and no other state or combination of states has the power to prevent it from doing so.”

    As I continue to contend, there is no unipolar world. The US is not dictating how the world should look as the sole arbiter. I am even dubious of a unimultipolar world

    https://www.aei.org/articles/a-uni-multipolar-world/

    The US has not been able to make that case at anytime in anything but words. Our influence and leadership has always been thwarted or aided by other countries. Pres Putin’s claim is premised on a nonexistent scenario. It sounds good, makes it appear as though he has done something amazing.
    But in reality he has invaded one small country. If the real world of geopoliics were to take him on as they should, he would be crushed. If what he is challenging in Unipolar, unimultipolar or multipolar, it would be his undoing. The failure to act has created a false sense of major shift.

    Clearly the only barrier is the fear of nuclear war — yawn and snore. But it has been effective, sadly.

    The EU is not and has not crumbled. Europe has not yet devolved into chaos and nothing reflecting the fear mongering by Russian advocates.

    This author is blinded by his own advocacy in my view. The world has not shifted even as much I might have thought. The US remains the pre-eminent power going forward that can deliver an on scene amount force anywhere in the world within 24 -48 hours on tap. And the westerns coalition will crush China as well as Russia should they press beyond tolerance. The problem for Russia is that very few of her neighbors are on board with her agenda. If she was looking to safeguard her territory proper with buffers — have actions have backfired. China has no ambitions regarding a restored Russia or Soviet Union. In reality, China could not afford the kind of two front gambit defending Russia would cause. While Japan has its issues, with he neighbors. At present, it is more likely that asian neighbors are more uncomfortable with Chinese pressure to force open markets and worse, to capture their territorial waters as extensions of China’s economic zone.

    Even in Africa, where the Chinese have been building repore since the 1960’s or early 70’s, there are growing tensions as China has failed to fulfill agreements – appreciated that video by the way by one commenter. I add the reference below.

  108. Petermx says:

    “The future world order, already in progress, will be formed by strong sovereign states. The ship has sailed. There’s no turning back.”

    Ironically, that was one of the reasons NATO was formed in 1949, to ensure sovereign states around the world. At that time Great Britain and France and most other European countries were not puppets of the US and collectively NATO opposed the USSR and the threat it posed to western Europe. East European countries were not independent of the USSR and the USSR would send troops into any east European country when something happened that was a threat to that state remaining under the USSR’s control. This happened in 1956 when Soviet troops moved into Hungary to put down a revolt and in 1968 when Warsaw Pact countries under Soviet leadership invaded or occupied Czechoslovakia. Beyond Europe, the USA opposed its former ally and the popularity of communism around the world, often fearing (rightly or wrongly) any new communist state would be under the control of the USSR, as eastern European countries were.

    Other major powers were not under complete control of the USA. Both Great Britain and France were nuclear powers and had their own foreign policies to defend their own national interests. There were several examples of this over the years including when De Gaulle removed France’s forces from being under NATO command and made all NATO forces leave France. Also, when France and Britain attacked Egypt in 1956 to prevent the nationalization of the Suez Canal and the USA publicly opposed that attack and threatened Britain with financial ruin. But it was obvious the USA was the most powerful member country and others gradually accepted their second class status. The British and French Empires ceased to exist and both countries were no longer the powers they once were. Even so, these countries were independent. Even West Germany, with WW II more in the memories of people around the world had leaders that would speak out occasionally in its own interest. Germany’s Helmut Schmidt and the USA’s Jimmy Carter disagreed publicly in the 1970’s on how and when to deploy NATO’s new missiles in response to the Soviet Union.

    Could you imagine any European leader speaking out in its own interests today, especially against the USA. Only little Hungary dares to and for this they are met with all sorts of threats, especially from their NATO “allies” and fellow EU members. Germany shuts down Nord Stream I and Nord Stream II that were to deliver vital natural gas needed by Germany and Europe because the US wants this and maybe also because EU countries have ceded much of their independence to unelected EU bureaucrats that serve the interests of the EU and not independent EU countries.

    In the 1990’s western Europe still made foreign policy decisions in its own interests. It formed the EU and the common currency, the euro, with the expressed desire for it to be the most powerful currency in the world, to form a united European economy that would be the number one economy in the world. The USA did not support these goals. Why would they? In 2003 when the USA invaded Iraq, both the French and German leaders spoke out against the invasion. They would not do that today anymore. They are both client states of the USA and Germany is also a puppet state. The former German Chancellor and WW II veteran Helmut Schmidt, who I mentioned earlier, said Russia’s annexation of Crimea was “completely understandable”. Former Chancellor Gerhard Schroder agreed with Schmidt in 2014 when both opposed western sanctions against Russia. Merkel referred to Schmidt’s statement as his “personal opinion”. Maybe that is the problem. EU leaders either do not have a personal opinion or won’t express it, especially if it is in their country’s interest and the US might oppose it. If Russia and China can make the world have sovereign states again that will benefit European countries greatly.

Where is this fifth column ? It seems to me at least it is a bunch of Noses who have convinced everyone they are the boogey men. A man has power if he convinces others that is so. However there is always that one person who remains unconvinced and becomes the opposition. Who would have thought that Florida would fling a hatchet into the Disney machine when the Company advocated for childhood sex education etc.

    My father, Don Peretz, wrote a book in the 1950s titled, Oil & The Foundation of Imperial Interests in the Middle East. This book isn’t available to the public. It outlined the British Empire’s plan for “Greater Israel” that’s been unfolding during the last century.

    Because I rejected Judaism and Hebrew lessons when I was ten years old, I was not privy to this plan for global domination by the WZO (World Zionist Organization). Nor was I informed of the many other secrets Jews hide from Gentiles that explain the success of their ruthless deception and terrorism — including their assassinations of President Kennedy and many other prominent statesmen.

    As I see it, the CIA, MI6, ISIS (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service), and most other intelligence agencies are just mercenaries for the WZO. It doesn’t matter if we dismantle the CIA and other covert terrorism organizations. The WZO and all other Jewish institutions must be exterminated.

    As anyone who’s traveled in recent years can attest, Turks, Kurds and Jews are at the bottom of the barrel of the human experiment. They’re genetically and culturally retarded in a profoundly terrible way.

    The G7 Prepares a Divide-and-Conquer Trap, as BRICS Countries Try to Reconstitute
    BY PATRICK BOND

    [MORE]

    ….”Russia’s rise up the commodity super-cycle from 2002-14 – before the 2015 oil and minerals price crash – reflected a shift from 1990s-era capital flight by oligarchs, to Russia’s hosting fully-fledged overaccumulated capital. It was at that point in the 2010s, predicted Harvey back in 2003, that such economies “then became competitors on the world stage,” albeit in the form of “what might be called ‘subimperialisms’… [in which] each developing centre of capital accumulation sought out systematic spatio-temporal fixes for its own surplus capital by defining territorial spheres of influence.”

    To deal with economic crisis at home, it’s logical then that Putin seeks more active territorial expansion options. The last time (2021) the IMF published a review of the overaccumulation of Russian capital – which is termed the “output gap,” reflecting “excess capacity” – its economists were blunt:

    “Assessing the amount of spare capacity in the economy is critical for economic policymaking, particularly in a crisis where there is an urgent need for supportive macroeconomic policies. Spare capacity, as measured by the gap between actual and potential output (the output gap), gives policymakers an indication of the extent to which fiscal policy can used to stimulate the economy… The ‘lockdown’ supply shock is estimated to have reduced potential GDP by nearly 2¾% in 2020. In 2021 potential real GDP rebounds as the lockdown is lifted but is weighed down the impact of the decline in investment during the crisis on the productive capital stock. Sensitivity analysis suggests the finding of a large and persistent output gap… The results suggest that the (negative) output gap in 2020 is likely to be in the range of 2–3 percent, and is likely to be as large, if not larger, in 2021.”

    Making it clear that such excess capacity and resulting devaluation in the Ukraine is on his mind, Putin himself remarked on the Kiev economy in his invasion announcement speech. He included choice words about devalued capital, especially since the 2014 coup:

    “Sectors including machine building, instrument engineering, electronics, ship and aircraft building have been undermined or destroyed altogether. There was a time, however, when not only Ukraine, but the entire Soviet Union took pride in these companies….”

The switch – a palace coup within the ruling party – occurred five months before South Africa hosted the BRICS leadership.

    Let us say you have a fellow with an IQ of 160. Brilliant fellow, world-class intellect. Then, let’s say that you have a bunch of fellows with an IQ of 100-110. Capable people, for the most part, but plainly not brilliant. Then, let’s throw in some individuals with an IQ under 90. That one brilliant fellow will clearly climb the ladder to power and influence and will acquire institutional power because he has cognitive abilities that far surpass those below him; those others will end up working for him. Since he is much smarter, and knows he has much more to lose and is much hated, he will use his intellectual advantage to secure protection and to wrap himself in institutional might that will secure his place. One brilliant man can, by controlling the levers of power, insulate himself and manipulate a thousand fools. So, yes, a small, cunning, extremely shrewd and smart minority can control huge numbers of other human beings because they control the commanding heights. That only changes if ALL of the people finally rebel against the tyranny of the tiny minority, even their former protectors (in other words, if the police, armed forces, judiciary, and deep state, all finally rebel against their masters). Failing that, tiny minorities can rule in perpetuity, since they can pick off small pockets of resisters as they emerge. I wouldn’t be surprised if a few hundred individuals control most of the world.

    But that’s not how it works. Fellows who really have an IQ of 160 don’t seek power because there are lots of more interesting and gratifying things to do in life than bossing people around. The higher the IQ, the less inclination for power. Tyrants are not geniuses. If they were that smart, their inconsistencies wouldn’t be that conspicuous.

    In fact, given the evil and chaos the USA has sown over the last 70 years, it is more deserving of being broken up. Hawaii and Puerto Rico back to its indigenous people, the southwest back to Mexico, the two Coasts on its own, Florida, and the other states can also go their own way.

    An actual non-hack military analysis by the UK’s Royal United Service Institute does a good job of explaining why Russia is actually winning on the ground in Ukraine. Namely, Russia has an industrial base that produces eight or ten times as many guns and shells as NATO and the U.S., which have gone all-in on hyper-expensive, super-complex, and low-volume artisanal weapon systems.

    https://rusi.org/explore-our-research/publications/commentary/return-industrial-warfare

    This is worth an Unz post – RUSI, the Royal United Services Institution is pretty much the house organ of the Brit military.

    I commented elsewhere as follows:

    The basic thesis is that Russia is vastly out-producing the US in ammunition and missiles. Remember all those “Russia will run out of ammunition in 2 weeks” stories a couple of months ago?

    The Kalibr motor manufacturers advertised 500 new positions in April. I haven’t seen any job ads at Roxel (Uk rocket motor peoplep) lately.

    They also argue that de-industrialising is bad news if you need skilled production workers in a hurry.

    “Generating new capacity is very challenging, especially as there is so little manufacturing capacity left to draw skilled workers from. ”

    Of course it might just be arms producers saying “give us more money!”

    https://rusi.org/explore-our-research/publications/commentary/return-industrial-warfare

    The war in Ukraine demonstrates that war between peer or near-peer adversaries demands the existence of a technically advanced, mass scale, industrial-age production capability. The Russian onslaught consumes ammunition at rates that massively exceed US forecasts and ammunition production. For the US to act as the arsenal of democracy in defence of Ukraine, there must be a major look at the manner and the scale at which the US organises its industrial base. This situation is especially critical because behind the Russian invasion stands the world’s manufacturing capital – China. As the US begins to expend more and more of its stockpiles to keep Ukraine in the war, China has yet to provide any meaningful military assistance to Russia. The West must assume that China will not allow Russia to be defeated, especially due to a lack of ammunition. If competition between autocracies and democracies has really entered a military phase, then the arsenal of democracy must first radically improve its approach to the production of materiel in wartime.

    Even most Americans have never realized that there were virtually no Mexicans in the American Southwest. When Mexico won its revolution against Spain, the few Spanish settlers in those current states were somewhat stranded, but preferred to be ruled by the Yanquis than the Mexicanos.

    Another point – the Donbass and Luhansk is full of Russian speakers, a hefty proportion of whom are perfectly happy under Russian rule. Nearly all the civilians remaining in places like Lyschansk are pro-Russian.

    https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-news/ukrainian-military-unit-russia-artillery-1365021/

    A big part of the problem in defending this part of Donbas, Ostap believes, is that the people who have stayed behind — the people who haven’t fled — don’t really believe they are part of Ukraine. In his view, the civilians who remain are all separatist sympathizers. He says they help the Russians navigate backcountry roads that aren’t on the maps.

    “Yeah, they’re all waiting for Russkiy mir,” Mace says, laughing when I ask his opinion about the locals. Russkiy mir, or “Russian world,” is the revanchist concept that Russia needs to restore its central role in the affairs of its neighbors, and its borders, to what they were at the height of the Soviet empire.

    But that’s not the impression the propagandists bombard us with. So it comes as a shock even to news reporters – the kind of people whose job it should be to know.

    Reporters from the French InfoFrance 2 are shocked when they found out that the locals in Lyschansk are waiting for the arrival of Russian forces and are not welcoming to the reporters and their Ukrainian soldiers accompanying them.

    Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk has said that one of the Cabinet’s goals and priorities in 2016 is to ensure a transition of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to a contractual form of military service and effectively integrate the army into NATO.

    “In reality, we are switching to a contractual army, and de-facto the Ukrainian Armed Forces must become NATO members, they must fully meet the standards and criteria of the North Atlantic Alliance,” he said at a Cabinet meeting on Thursday, listing the goals the government has set itself for 2016.

    Speaking about the Cabinet’s plans of reforms, Yatseniuk listed large-scale transparent privatization of state-owned facilities and the adoption of respective laws as the first step. This concerns Odesa port-side chemical plant, Centrenergo, regional power distribution companies and other facilities whose privatization is not allowed, but they are not of strategic importance for state security.

    Yatseniuk said that such companies should be put up for sale at auctions to “attract the investor, create jobs and boost the country’s economic potential.”

    The next task of the reform is to further de-regulate the Ukrainian economy and relax administration and leverage over the economy.

    “The third thing is the reform of the State Fiscal Service,” Yatseniuk said.

    Realistically Russia/Ukraine was their planned new home. It could never have been China.

    Correct on both points.

    China is the colossal production source – they were to be the factory, mine, plantation, farm and warehouse, all rolled into one. The source of literally (no exaggeration) limitless wealth forever.

    Russia was meant to be the upscale neighborhood, the gated community with private schools and private security force, the place of mansions and estates. This was where the owners would live.

    The strategy was: enslave and exploit Chinese for colossal profits earned for eternity, AND make fools of Russians to act as security guards and house servants in the high class address. That was their plan.

    Oh well, it was all dumb from the start. It was never gonna happen. Now the Workers (China) together with the Guards (Russia) have decided to destroy the “owners”.

    Woke, angry minorities only exist INSIDE Western nations. In North America and Europe, it seems the minorities want vengeance.

    Outside the Western world, in the normal real planet Earth, this is not remotely a thing. What those people want is for the Western boots off their necks. No vengeance, instead anger and desire to breathe.

    Seen it in the Philippines, for example. ASEAN member country, just elected a very pro-China administration, yet Americans and Europeans are welcome to stay and live. You can go your whole life speaking English, with not a single local friend, as long as you never break the law. Americans and Europeans all live in their little worlds, never bothered by locals.

    The only thing required is don’t spout too much pro-U.S./Europe BS, respect local culture, and don’t expect special treatment (like don’t expect you can deal drugs or hurt someone and big daddy America or Britain’s going to strong-arm the locals). Other than that, the place is safe and secure enough.

    So yeah, it is possible for white westerners to make lives away from the collapsing West. There are a lot of decent, quickly rising places away from the U.S. or E.U.

    We just have to adjust to the facts. What we are seeing is the permanent ending of 400-plus years of Western Civilizational dominance of the world. Finito, kaput, it’s OVER.

    The dominance, per se, will disappear, Western Civilization and Western peoples will be fine, the rest of humanity has no problem with us, provided WE in the West let it (the idea of supremacy) go, peacefully.

    A whole new epoch in human history is beginning. Western whites can be part of it. Our choice.

I hope the Chinese don’t bite: if they have studied history at all, if they have any concept of what destroyed the US, they will keep these creatures far removed from the centers of Chinese institutions. I am hopeful that Russia has also shown the Chinese what the ((termites)) did to them, and how they butchered millions upon millions of Russians with glee. Everywhere the ((termites)) have gone, they have not tried to be good citizens; they have, instead, tried to discredit, undermine, and destroy the native elites and replace them with themselves. They have also tried to destroy the native-born population, such as what they have been doing to the White middle and working class for decades. Divide and conquer. Play both ends against the middle.

India will use Russian, Western and Israeli weapons on its enemies. Indeed, India uses its huge arms’ market as an enticement and cane to keep other powers in line. Just like how the USA uses access its huge, rich domestic market as a leverage. Because many countries want access to it’s huge defense markets, they do not go beyond a point in criticizing India.

    Since you mentioned the settlers, from the formation of the Provincia de las Californias (California and the Southwest America) in 1768, to the independence of Mexico from Spain in 1821, it was solely Spanish settlers. The first visit by non-Spanish Europeans was in 1825 in Arizona. With subsequent settlements by Americans into the southwest, notably Texas – the Americans then agitated the 1835 Texan revolt thus grabbing Texas

    http://www.smithsonianeducation.org/educators/lesson_plans/borders/essay2.html

    And as for the Mexicans staying there, although they became US citizens and promised their safety and property rights, this was not in practice.

    “By the end of the 19th century, many Mexican Americans had been deprived of their land” – So ethnic cleansing had been carried out.

    People like us won’t be raided by a SWAT at 3 am. We’ll be made, slowly, destitute, with restricted access to basic services. Now….that will make that breaking point with some of us where we’ll unleash on some plebs as us and get smashed in the process.

    Or…something is done to counter that.

    Your approach, I assume, as with many who do think here (which is minority here of course), is that “populist” angle, judging from

    ….what they do have is mass…numbers. To throw off the power yoke of the Deep State will require force….

    The solution: we just educate that mass and, voila…the spark will ignite the mass and….what’s described as “Sorel’s general strike” principle.
    I don’t believe in that.

    What I do believe is that the “spark” will be an organized effort by a competent outfit led and backed by some splinter group of the current 1 %.
    Trump was supposed to be that. Look at the power of that call; people are getting excited about his second run for the presidency.

    What to do in the meantime is the question. Well….focus on minimizing the damage of creeping austerity and anarcho-tyranny on the personal/family/close friends level, AND, well…..try to think how would you contribute to that effort when that happens. It will. When, no idea.

    There are, really, two ways of “physical resistance”:
    Lone wolf/wild bunch style–>smashed as insect/going out in a blaze of glory. Good, perhaps, as an example of heroic deed when the real thing happens.
    Well organized, mass, political effort backed by force. Emphasize on “backed”. And it starts from the top. People like us just fitting in.

    My take, anyway.

    Third World America: Amtrak Derails Completely
    Andrew Anglin
    June 28, 2022

    A lot of stupid retards still think America is a first world country because they don’t know any better and they just believe lies they see on TV.

    I’ve said a million times: you get off the plane in Hong Kong or Shanghai, and you feel like you’ve just landed on a base on Mars in the year 2350. Americans simply have no idea just how far behind America is, in terms of quality of life and implementation of modern technology.

  190. while the BRICS-SA nations focus on the real economy, assets, materials, physical deliverables, The so called “West” focuses on lawyer tricks, banking manipulations, narrative control, and repression of its own people.

    I think even writers such as Mr. Escobar have imbibed sufficient entrainment to conflate wrongly the real economies of the west with the Collective “Worst.” holding east and west as equal and opposite is a mistake. Only when we compare apples to apples, can the oranges be truly understood.

    The entire Western narrative and fiscal infrastructure is a shell game based on a century old and frankly illegal concentration of power.

    The worship of technology is what has made our world so inhospitable and literally lethal for many of us and our natural habitat.

    Without “technology” you have chimps, not even Homo Erectus, who could apparently use fire [1] despite a preoccupation with sex.

    Since 1900AD child mortality has dropped from ~50% to its present value, average lifespan has risen from 35yr-45yr (depending on country) to its present value, ~70 yr.

    Let’s try it again:

    The worship of idiots who don’t understand or want to understand science and engineering (lumping them together as “technology” or “magic” or “equipment”) is what has made our world so inhospitable and literally lethal for many of us and our natural habitat.

    For example. W. Churchill, A. Hitler, and J. Stalin, between them responsible for much of the run-up to WW II, knew nothing of science or engineering or even manufacturing (which is English for “technology” [2]).

    2] “technology”, from Greek, lit. “Logos”, (words) concerning “techne” (making things). Currently used as a substitute for Science, Engineering, and Manufacturing. The lumping of so many disparate areas of human endeavor makes “technology” the equivalent of “magic”.

    His moniker should be American Bullwalk — sadly what the irrational and uneducated have devolved to in this country.

  194. Well, I’m not surprised by that. In the Book of Daniel, we read, “At the appointed time [the king of the north] will return back.” (11:29a) And that, in this context, means the end of “the era of the unipolar world”. Russian troops will return to where they were previously stationed. It also means means military actions, a major crisis, plus the break-up of the EU and NATO. Many countries of the former Eastern block will return to a military alliance with Russia. All the details of this vision are being fulfilled from the time of ancient Persia spectacularly and in chronological orderand, and it doesn’t look like a coincidence. (Jeremiah 1:11, 12)
