Introduction

It is sometimes helpful not to look at any one specific issue in detail, but rather make a survey of ongoing processes instead. The resulting picture is neither better nor worse, it is simply different. This is what I want to do today: to take a bird’s eye view of our suffering planet.

Putin trolls the Empire

It is all really simple: if the Ukrainians will give passports to Russian citizens, and we in Russia will be handing out passports to the Ukrainians, then sooner or later will will reach the expected result: everybody will have the same citizenship. This is something which we have to welcome.

Vladimir Putin

It appears that the Kremlin is very slowly changing its approach to the Ukrainian issue and is now relying more on unilateral actions. The first two measures taken by the Russians are maybe not “too little too late”, but certainly “just the bare minimum and at that, rather late”. Still, I can only salute the Kremlin’s newly found determination. Specifically, the Kremlin has banned the export of energy products to the Ukraine (special exemptions can still be granted on a case by case basis) and the Russians have decided to distribute Russian passports to the people of Novorussia. Good.

Zelenskii’s reaction to this decision came as the first clear sign that the poor man has no idea what he is doing and no plan as to how to deal with the Russians. He decided to crack a joke, (which he is reportedly good at), and declare that the Ukrainian passport was much better than the Russian one and that the Ukraine will start delivering Ukrainian passports to Russian citizens. Putin immediately replied with one of his typical comebacks declaring that he supports Zelenskii and that he looks forward to the day when Russians and Ukrainians will have the same citizenship again. Zelenskii had nothing to say to that 🙂

Zelenskii finally finds something common to Russia and the Ukraine

I have been thinking long about this “a lot in common” between Ukraine and Russia. The reality is that today, after the annexation of the Crimea and the aggression in the Donbas, of the “common” things we have only one thing left – this is the state border. And control of every inch on the Ukrainian side, must be returned by Russia. Only then will we be able to continue the search for [things in] “common”

Vladimir Zelenskii

Well, almost. He did eventually make a Facebook post in which he declared that all that Russia and the Ukraine had in common was a border. This instantly made him the object of jokes and memes, since all Russians or Ukrainians know that Russia and the Ukraine have many old bonds which even 5 years of a vicious civil war and 5 years of hysterically anti-Russian propaganda could not sever. They range from having close relatives in the other country, to numerous trade and commercial transactions, to a common language. The closest thing to a real Ukrainian language would be the Surzhik which is roughly 50/50 in terms of vocabulary and whose pronunciation is closer to the south Russian one than to the Zapadenskii regional dialect spoken in the western Ukraine and which is used (and currently imposed) by the Ukronazi junta in Kiev.

The malignant manatee threatens the planet with fire and brimstone

We have Pompeo, a malignant manatee looking to start wars in which he will not risk his flabby amorphous ass also parading his Christianity. Bolton, a mean sonofabitch who belongs in a strait jacket, at least doesn’t pose as someone having a soul. And the Golden Tufted Cockatoo, too weak to control those around him, preening and tweeting. God save us.

Fred Reed

The term “malignant manatee” is not from me, the brilliant Fred Reed came up with this one, but I can only fully endorse it because it fits. Perfectly. And our malignant manatee sure is on a roll! Just this week he managed to threaten Venezuela, Iran, and even Russia and China together. I think that it is high time to declare that Pompeo is a bona fide nutcase, a dangerous, arrogant and ignorant psychopath whose crazy statements represent a direct threat to the entire planet. Not to say that his pal Bolton is any less crazy. Now combine these two rabid thugs with the spineless “Golden Tufted Cockatoo” (to use Fred Reed’s equally hilarious but accurate characterization) and you see that the planet is in big, big trouble.

Turns out that Putin is a crypto-Zionist and an Israeli puppet.

Here I won’t even bother with any quotes. The alternative Internet/blogosphere has, again, been hit by a wave of articles declaring that Putin is Netanyahu’s puppet and a crypto-Zionist. I have debunked that nonsense in the past (see here and here) and I won’t repeat it all here. Besides, what this surge in “Putin the Zionist” propaganda is, is not so much the result of a gradual realization about the true agenda or Putin himself as much as it is, yet again, a desperate scramble for clicks. I already discussed that recently too (see here). I will just reiterate my conclusion here: clickbaiters are never experts and experts are never clickbaiters.

Frankly, to all those who email me and ask “Is it really true? Putin is an Israeli puppet? He helps Netanyahu in Syria, does he not?!” I would suggest simply looking at what the Israelis and Zionists write about Putin (for starters, you can click here, here or here). Even better, ask the defenders of Putin the crytpo-Zionist to explain the hysterically anti-Putin campaign the US legacy Ziomedia has been engaged in for the past years! But don’t hold your breath for an answer – since Russia has comprehensively foiled all Israel’s many plans for Syria, it takes a remarkable determination not to see that Putin is hated by Neocons and Zionists alike, and for good cause, I would add.

Oh, and Putin is a crypto-Muslim too!

Yes, besides being a crypto-Zionist, Putin is also a crypto-Muslim. This latest nonsense usually comes from Alt-Right circles who can forgive Putin his friendliness to Israel, but not to Islam. These are the folks who believe that Putin is not a real defender of the “White Race”. They are opposed by those who believe that Putin and the Moscow Patriarchate will somehow jump-start the “Christian West”. We are talking about some hardcore “single-issue” folks here whose main disagreement is whether Jews or Muslims are to be hated (and feared!) most.

[Having had to deal with both groups myself – I have been accused of being a Jew, a Jew lover and a Muslim and a Muslim lover many times! – I know that reasoning with these folks is a total waste of time. Their paranoid hatred is completely incompatible with any fact-based and logical discussion. Besides, by arguing with them you threaten their income and livelihood – which due to their lack of expertise depends entirely on their ability to generate clickbait revenue. If you do engage with them, they will call you a Jew-lover or an Islam-lover and that’s it. Not worth your time IMHO].

ORDER IT NOW

The quasi-comical truth is that the Alt-Righters don’t get Russia *at all*. They keep transposing their narrow horizons on a nation with which they have absolutely nothing in common, not even religiously or racially (even if they think otherwise). Hence their love-hate relationship with Putin: on one hand, they would love to have a champion like Putin (Ann Coulter or Milo Yiannopoulos do not qualify), but on the other, they hate Putin for not endorsing their racist and fascist agenda. Truth be told: Russia has no use for these intellectual midgets.

Russia is “selling out” to the Taliban?

Well, since we are making a (tongue-in-cheek) “inventory” of all of Putin’s (and even Russia’s) sins, let’s include cozying up to the Taliban (who even agreed to put on Saint George’s Ribbons!) and… … and what exactly is happening here?

How about trying to bring peace back to Afghanistan? You know – the same thing Russia is doing in Venezuela, in Syria and elsewhere. This implies talking to the other side, and even striking smiling poses when asked by the press.

Needless to say, the thugs running the AngloZionst Empire have accused Russia or aiding and even arming the Taliban. And why not? This is no more ridiculous than saying that Saddam and Iran are helping al-Qaeda, or than saying that Russia “hacked” DNC computers, or told Maduro not to run for his life. Hey! We are living in “Skripal times” and the rules of evidence have changed to “highly likely” – so why not claim that Russia is also selling out to the Taliban (maybe even on Netanyahu’s orders?).

In the meantime, Russian soldiers are busy ducking missiles…

Yep, apparently unaware that their Commander-in-Chief is a puppet of both Israel and the worldwide Islamic Ummah, Russian servicemen are ducking missiles in Syria. The latest attack saw them shoot 36 missiles (and one targeting drone) out of the sky. This is good news, of course, but this just goes to show that these (US and Israel backed) Islamists shooting these missiles have not been informed that the Russian military in Syria is here to help Netanyahu and Trump. Somebody should probably tell them 😉

Conclusion: just one more crazy and terrifying week, with many more to come

I tried to be a little tongue-in-cheek here, but the reality is that what is taking place before our eyes is both absolutely insane and most terrifying. Why? Because the world is now ruled by a most dangerous gang of ignorant thugs who are very rapidly losing their grip on our planet and who is simply neither intellectually equipped to understand, nor deal with this very complex and rapidly changing situation.

What we are seeing is a full-spectrum collapse of the unipolar world and its gradual, but also inexorable, replacement with a multi-polar world in which things like “speaking with your adversaries or even enemies” becomes the norm rather than the exception. Even more importantly, this is a world in which US threats always fall on deaf ears simply because nobody takes the US seriously anymore. While the US military probably has the capability to re-invade Grenada or “bring democracy” to the inhabitants of the North Sentinel Island – no adults in the room will be impressed (least of all the Iranians!).

It is this quiet indifference which enrages the likes of Pompeo, Bolton or Trump – for all their narcissistic chest-thumping – they are, and will forever remain, the ultimate losers – folks who simply couldn’t get *anything* done. Even more terrifying is their sense of total impunity. If Obama was “democracy with a human face” then Trump is “democracy with a simian face” – not much better.

When I think that a “Golden Tufted Cockatoo” (to use Fred Reeds wonderful image) has the authority to press the nuclear button I feel terrified. I also realize that the survival of the human species will depend on Putin and Xi and their ability to gradually disarm or neutralize the US threat without triggering a nuclear war.

These are truly terrifying times. If you are not terrified, then you are delusional.

But if being terrified is a natural and absolutely normal reaction, we need to overcome it and fearlessly resist. Like Maduro does, surrounded by his men.

This refusal to be afraid, even while being terrified, is how we will eventually defeat the Empire!

Venezuela is, by far, the weakest link in the chain of resistance to the Empire. But look at these faces! All I can say is this: may the courage of the kids protecting not only Maduro, but also the sovereignty of their country, be an inspiration to us all, no matter how terrified we are.

UPDATE: turns out that it was not Russia or Cuba which are responsible for the failed coup. According to Neocon US Senator from Florida, Venezuela regime change crusader Marco Rubio, it’s the Chinese! I wonder whom the US leaders are going to blame next? Any guesses?

    Iran sees itself as a power in its own right and Russia is under no obligation whatsoever to help them. Putin’s less wordly wise advisors make a lot of noise but I doubt he takes them seriously

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/putin-adviser-denies-anti-semitic-theory-about-ukraines-jewish-president/

    An adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin denied floating an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory, saying an op-ed he wrote was interpreted incorrectly.

    Reports about Sergei Glazyev’s op-ed said he had suggested that Volodymyr Zelensky, the newly elected president of Ukraine, who is Jewish, is planning to replace ethnic Russians with Jews from Israel.The reports on the op-ed, which was published Monday in the Zavtra news website, prompted an Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesperson to call the op-ed “conspiratorial and anti-Semitic.”

    But Glazyev on Wednesday rejected the accusation, saying he was the victim of a politically motivated misreading and that his op-ed did not mention Jews.

  5. Americans probably don’t understand Russia. Americans don’t even mostly understand their own history. With little education in our system of constitutional governance in formerly politically apathetic—now Woke—public schools bereft of civics classes, the lack of historical grounding is not surprising.

    One thing Americans do understand, though, is the need to stop the mass flow of welfare-assisted immigration, curbing the illegal kind entirely and reducing the legal kind significantly. Americans have made this clear twice: in the election of Donald J. Trump and in the equally unexpected rise of Ross Perot, an unprecedentedly successful Third Party candidate in the Nineties who rocketed to prominence by boldly condemning “the giant sucking sound of jobs going across the border to Mexico.”

    It just does not matter what Americans want in our rigged system. Whatever we vote for, mostly for economic reasons but also a few other good reasons, Neoliberal economic Elites ignore it, pursuing their own economic interests once in office.

    Maybe, Perot would have done the same thing as Trump if he had made it to the White House. But people like Ann Coulter are popular because—like Perot—they articulate in no uncertain terms crucial, popular points that most politicians are just too cowering to even address verbally, much less redressing voters’ grievances with any real action.

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/05/08/ann-coulter-the-way-we-were/

    On the campaign trail, Trump cleverly sidestepped the issue of immigration with mocking comedy that could be conveniently repackaged in case of any victory. It was just a matter of interpretation: whether you heard more Build The Wall or more Big Beautiful Door in the wall in Trump’s thunderous speeches. Trump’s voters heard Build The Wall, and many did not show up to vote for Republicans in the midterms, whereas the Cheap Labor Lobby & the corporate donor class heard Big Beautiful Door.

    Puppet and Crypto-Zionist are very silly terms.

    However, Russia and Israel are certainly allies.

    They have deep cultural and political ties based on Russian Jews migrating to Israel. While not as as powerful as it used to be, Russian Jews still have significant representation in the Knesset via the Yisrael Beiteinu party earning 5 seats in this year’s election. (1)

    They have deep military industrial / economic ties, such as the joint sale of over $800M of AWACS equipment to India. (2)

    Syrian militants fired 36 rockets at Russia’s Khmeimim airbase in two attacks on Monday, but both were repelled by the air defenses with no damage dealt,

    True but off-point. One tactical engagement is not strategy. And, the Syrian militants were aligned with Turkey, not Israel or the U.S.

    Russia and Iran are NOT allies.

    Russia has fired zero interceptors to prevent at Israeli Air force strikes at Iran/Hezbollah troops in Syria. Even anti-Israeli news sources such as Southfront have conceeded that the one S-300 still not fully turned over to Syrian control will do little to help defend Iran/Hezbollah troops in Syria. (3)

    I will just reiterate my conclusion here: clickbaiters are never experts and experts are never clickbaiters.

    Indeed these words from The Saker are true. And, anyone claiming that a ‘Iran – Hezbollah – Russia’ alliance exists is a clickbater, not an expert. Clickbaters exist in binary extremes — Thou must be an ally to Iran/Hezbollah or a mortal enemy to Iran/Hezbollah.

    The truth is a much paler shade of grey. I would choose the term ‘benign neutral’. Russia is more than happy to sell to Iran, but is not going fight a war for them.

    They are definitely doing the “bullying of Czechoslovakia” bit right now. While evidently disregarding any actual national interest. What Israel ordered.

    Pompeo is a real piece of work. Tells the Iraqis what they are supposed to do, tells the Brits what they are supposed to do. Great stuff. How come he isn’t just sent back to the airport posthaste with a sticky note on his back saying something about defective goods?

    But now it’s getting interesting:

    Trump reportedly blames John Bolton for embroiling him in a potential Venezuelan quagmire.

    Would be fun to see Boltar dragged away and exiled to a lonely reef in the Pacific. Which is then nuked from orbit because it’s the only way to be sure. But I doubt the satanic power in him would be rendered impotent even then.

IOW, by lame ducks who cannot strongly argue, much less set policy.

    The US is playing with a very shallow bench, going up against Russia’s and China’s very deep benches. Even if those positions were filled tomorrow, how long before the Appointees come up to speed? What sort of policy depth can develop under such circumstances? How’s the lack of policy depth going to work out in the near and medium term?

  21. When we take a close look at the American Government and it’s elected officials, we can only come to one conclusion. The US is a thriving criminal enterprise that uses force to get what they want. The military’s role is that of enforcers and the US President is no different than a Mafia Don. In no other time in US history has Government and Organized Criminal Gangs been so indistinguishable. George H.W. Bush with his New World Order announcements, his CIA drug dealing operations and military invasion of Panama to steal the drug cartel’s money deposited in that county’s banks, came close. Bill Clinton working with George H.W. Bush protecting drug shipments smuggled into Mena, AK, the cover up of murdered witnesses and numerous sexual assault allegations also came pretty close.

    But when George W. Bush, Dick Chaney, Paul Wolfowitz and Donald Rumsfeld came into power, that was a Mafia if there was ever one. That group of criminals stole more money and murdered more people than any criminal organization in history. They even conned the American people into believing some rag-heads in Afghanistan hiding in caves did it. It was the first time since Pancho Villa that anyone attacked the US on its own soil. Not only did they steal all the gold stored in bank vaults located in the Twin Towers, but they put money on the stock market. In true gangster fashion the next move was to retaliate against the Muslim Mafia who was fingered by Mayer Lanski (Benjamin Nuttenyahoo) and their own paid snitches (MSM). It was time to hit mattresses and send their enforcers to get payback so the Purple Gang (Israel) can take over their territory.

    There is a big difference between the US Government and the Mafia when it comes to war, the Mafia adheres to a strict code of ethics, they do not target their enemies families.

    In 2016 the American people elected a true gangster from New York city. A known con man, a swindler, a tax evader and known associate of the criminal underground. A man with numerous court cases and 23 accusations of sexual assault. A man who was screwing a porn star while his wife was given birth. A man who’s mentor was Roy Cohen a mob attorney and practicing homosexual who died of AIDS. A man that surrounded himself with the most perverted group of people in New York such as: Roger Stone a well known swinger and gay pride participant. Paul Manafort a convicted criminal and swinger who attended the same clubs as Stone along with their wives. They liked to watch their wives get screwed by other men. Lets not forget John Bolton who was exposed by Larry Flint for also being a swinger. His ex-wife accused him of forcing her to perform sex acts with multiple men at the same clubs the other 2 cuckolds attended. A Russian agent once commented that the best place to find government people to blackmail was the New York swingers scene.

    Jeffery Epstein tops the list of perverted friends of Donald Trump. Epstein is the worst kind of perverted human being. The predator pedophile that uses his money to lure young girls into his sick world. Epstein holds the key to uncovering the nation wide pedophile ring that include some of the most famous people in the US. This is Trump’s Mafia, a Mafia not like the Gambinos or Luchesis. A Mafia full of Perverts, Criminals, Pedophiles and Cuckolds. These are just a few of the people in Trump’s circle of friends. If these are your leaders, what does that say about the American people!

    My dad used to tell me… tell me who you hang around with, and I’ll tell you who you are! Every single person in DC government is compromised! And this incompetent Mafia of Perverts want you to believe that Madurro is a corrupt leader and Iran is a threat to the US!

    A typical “Putinist” Saker article

    “I will just reiterate my conclusion here: clickbaiters are never experts and experts are never clickbaiters.”

    Correct. His articles proves that Saker is a clickbaiter himself. He is mostly followed by a small group of people who believe that Putin and Russia is sacred and beyond criticism. They ardently believe that Putin is the savior of humanity and that he fights a holly war against zionism, imperialism and all the evil on the planet. Saker created a “Saker Community” which looks more or less like a religious sect with its strict disciples. Promoting Putin and his policies obviously attracts followers and thus their donations (i.e. clickbaiting). In their eyes Putin is a legendary figure equal to Che Guevera or Christ and can’t do any wrong.

    Andrew Korybko has many recent articles debunking social-media characters like Saker. I would highly recommend everybody to have a glimpse.

    —————references————–

    There is a new article by Andrew Korybko detailing Russia’s recent actions vis a vis Syria. I think it is another eye opener regarding Putin and Russian geopolitics.

    “No, Assad Didn’t “Win” The War, He Was Compelled By Putin To “Compromise””
    https://eurasiafuture.com/2019/04/16/no-assad-didnt-win-the-war-he-was-compelled-by-putin-to-compromise/

    “After all, none other than Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov loudly proclaimed in 2016 that “Assad is not our ally” so it doesn’t matter to Moscow whether he remains in office or not. Alt-Media won’t admit it, but it looks like President Putin is no longer afraid of the “Assad must go” curse.”

    https://eurasiafuture.com/2019/04/17/why-isnt-oil-rich-russia-helping-its-syrian-ally-survive-the-fuel-crisis/

    A.Korybko calls him Putinyahu and I think for a very good reason. I am glad that Korybko came back to his senses lately (his last few articles) after entertaining Putin’s “Balancing Act” for a while. We need to understand Putin and deduct from what he has been doing so far, only then we can judge him. To follow him blindly and calling him “great statesman”, “greatest leader” or “5 dimensional chess player” is not fair for our intelligence, unless it is done for propaganda purposes. To be fair and honest, he is a leader of a country which is run by a dozen of oligarchs. He is just doing the bidding for these people in the first place. Otherwise he wouldn’t have lasted that long as a President. When we look at him from this perspective, I think we can analyse him much better.

    Another eye opener article: “Is The Tartus Port Deal A Strategic Trap For Syria?”

    Yeah brother that POS was called out during his confirmation hearings during baby bush’s presidency. Larry Flint had offered a Million dollars to anyone who had proof of republican sexual exploits. He was quickly fingered by someone who attended those clubs. He was forced to accept a temporary position and quietly resigned after a few months so as to avoid facing questions. Someone said they saw him proposition a teenage girl outside one of the swinger clubs he frequented.

    Rubio is just a no-count, lying piece of filth who is in office simply to do the bidding of Jewish American oligarch Norman Braman. Little Marco despised being senator, which is why he hardly ever attended the sessions in Congress and why he promised not to run again for the office when he thought he might win the GOP nomination for the presidency. He broke his promise and belatedly ran for re-election when it looked like he might not find any other job for which a billionaire from Pennsylvania would reward him handsomely under the table for delivering non-stop incendiary rhetoric against Israel’s line-up of enemies across the globe. He sure does not advocate any policies that do the people of Florida the slightest bit of good–not even the Cubans he also pretends to champion. You’d have to be a suicidal end-timer to wish for the same things that Marco seems to want at the behest of the real puppeteers who control Trump out of Jerusalem. What’s even worse for us Floridians–and I know you’re one of us, Saker–is that both of our senators are now carbon copies of Likud’s profile for the ideal U.S. senator.

  47. I am not really terrified about nuclear war..about the insane USA pulling the nuclear trigger. they most likely will anyway..the Khazars will pull the trigger through this or that US puppet among the many who can be poised to do so by that Satanic power

    it has been my contention for some time that no current Khazar generation can afford to lose..that at least is how I think that they look at the situation. the Khazars have been responsible for horrific and long standing and on-going depredation on the human species. they have tortured, bled, lied to and killed humanity for a very long time: their social control has prevented human social change or revolutionary change to more advanced ways of social organization and the full use of human capacity in human development and survival in nature

    Khazar existence has been watered by human blood and suffering and treasure..for 13-14 hundred years now. in the development of a multi polar world and the loss of Khazar control and power, the rest of the human species must make sense of our collective experience over the time of the Khazars, to retire our collective emotional traumas generated by Khazar manipulation of human society.

    if we do not know that yet the Khazars certainly do..which is why they have built fortress Israel where they also possess the means to destroy the planet. so if they cant get the Americans to do it..they will ultimately if they cannot white mail their permanent safety from global prosecution for their millennia old criminality against humanity

    I don’t see how a resolution of this, what I consider a paradox… is possible without nuclear war. in time the Khazars cannot be given a walk for their behavior and outlook. their religion in which they see the rest of humanity as less than aphids cannot be tolerated. the world in sufficient time, must arrive at some level of what is true about the universe/earth and work with that as the basis of education for all while open about what we do not know and work on to clear away ignorance.

    to continue with many opposing duelling supreme gods in the sky is insane, wrong and dangerous, when so much is explicable, logical, using nature as the template for all that exists. logic, Occams Razor must help us determine what is logical beyond what we have proven/prove as we go. logic must destroy illogical beliefs..and if not what do we do if some people insist o ideas and systems of belief clearly injurious to life as a whole?

    the Khazar paradox seems intractable to me..and will lead to human extinction

    but again, in my conception nature if it is evolutionary, even otherwise. nature keeps records and survival, going on, is it’s mode, irrevocably so..hence we have the dying out of previous forms of hominids for example and the survival so far, of the better equipped Homo Sapiens Sapiens…a kind of logical progression

    I mean the planet will be irradiated for a very long time if we blow it..but nature has all the time in the universe. but forget earth! if the universe is nature and nature is a universal integrated whole then nature can use propitious conditions anywhere to generate human life again but this time much better given the prototype we really are

    we would have destroyed our own place and opportunity but nature, though relative to all it evolves..which is why we are the way we are, born ignorant etc, unlike any child of supreme gods..will go on. nature is forever and for sure will extend itself once again with human types but far better than we are, armed with this/our experience, what we are about to abort. of that I am absolutely certain

    that is the way I see life…as natures on-going existence, it evolutionary imperative and need to extend itself. that will not die with humanity. Humanity cannot deal with its opportunity.

    we have made a pigs breakfast of our chances. we have been tied up by emotion, beliefs, unable to cope with our ignorance and emotion and make sense of it. we fee and don’t know the entire picture/spectrum of what we feel, have experienced to cause the feeling… that is the problem. we have built dangerous nonsense out of the experience. then we cam to know some and turned it all into exploitation of ourselves creating all manner of insane beliefs as justification for exploitation. we are insecure against nature and each other..and we are greedy with all of that… so we built armies and weapons…..

    and here we are at what is probably our end. depression, fear? well sure! but for me a logical reasoning continuation helps: I see the end of humanity as a likely reality soon enough..then again nature is all and nature goes on and so humanity/humanoids will occur again… somewhere..but better than we are.. as surely that that is natures way.

    the Khazars have been the antagonist of the human piece..the rest of us could not deal with them..and I am already speaking of humanity in past tense. the Khazars were?…are meant to destroy humanity..that they cannot help that as far as I can see..for if we avoid war it would be only if the Khazars win and go in in full world control of humanity. what they would do to humanity with such control eventuality loses all comprehension given what they have already done. their evil promise is extraordinary and is bound to lead to human extinction anyway, in quick time if we apply advancing science to such possibility

    so really..given the presence of the Khazar in the mix humanity really has no chance. or we had a chance if we had stopped them when we could. stopping them now one way or the other seems out of the question

    Iran has stated categorically that if attacked, it will respond by attacking all US assets and Israel.

    Iran has shown that unlike Libya it has the defences to seriously harm and disrupt any attacks from the air. US still would like its’ drone back please.
    The Russians and Chinese will become involved in that they will supply armaments as a testing ground for their developments and only if US puts boots on the ground will they respond militarily and in that event they will respond militarily and conclusively.
    There is no movement or group in Iran such as there was in Libya to cause internal strife and Iran will be completely united should anyone attack.
    Bombing Iran from the air, even if it could be contained will do no real harm, nothing like Libya, Iran has numerous large cities and US could not bomb them all. Like NK Iran would just hunker down and wait for the boots to appear. Like NK when the boots do appear they will get their asses handed to them.
    Russia is not going to be the ones who start WW3 and kill several hundred million people, but if their interest or personnel are attacked or harmed then it will respond and destroy the USA homeland.

    Christopher Dickey

    PARIS—When it comes to foreign policy, the best thing about Donald J. Trump is his distaste for wars. He really does not want to continue old unresolved ones, much less launch new ones. Unfortunately, that’s in direct contradiction with his macho MAGA muscle-flexing.

    His answer: money. Trump’s core belief appears to be that he can weaponize the dollar, putting sanctions on those he declares enemies, then sanctioning as well anybody around the world who doesn’t cooperate, squeezing them until they give up.

    “Six Grand Illusions That Keep Us Enslaved to the Matrix.”

    We live in a world of illusion. So many of the concerns that occupy the mind and the tasks that fill the calendar arise from planted impulses to become someone or something that we are not. This is no accident. As we are indoctrinated into this authoritarian-corporate-consumer culture that now dominates the human race, we are trained that certain aspects of our society are untouchable truths, and that particular ways of being and behaving are preferred.

    Psychopaths disempower people in this way. They blind us with never ceasing barrages of suggestions and absolutes that are aimed at shattering self-confidence and confidence in the future.

    After initial denial, UAE confirms ships ‘sabotaged’ off its coast

    The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has confirmed, after initial denial, that a number of commercial ships have been targeted by “sabotage” attack near its territorial waters.

    The Foreign Ministry of the United Arab Emirates issued a statement, saying that four commercial vessels have been targeted by “sabotage operations” near its territorial waters.

    The statement added that there were no victims, but fell short of giving any details on possible damage to commercial vessels, their nationally and possible casualties.

    The ministry statement was tweeted by the official news agency WAM.

    According to the statement, the incident occurred near the UAE emirate of Fujairah, one of the world’s largest bunkering hubs that lies just outside the Strait of Hormuz, which is a vital oil and natural gas corridor for the global energy market.

    Korybko is correct in all he says about Putin, but there is perhaps a bigger picture to consider. Here are some speculations.

    Putin just wants to stalemate everything, he doesn’t want to escalate anything. So, he has saved Syria, that is good enough, he doesn’t really want Syria to take back the Golan Heights nor respond to Israel’s bombings as that would escalate matters.

    Similarly, he doesn’t want Iran to confront Israel, he’d prefer it if Iran would keep its distance and not escalate anything. Iran meanwhile can’t understand why Russia just wants to let Israel kill more Palestinians without any response.

    Russia’s position will have to change from a stalemate centered approach to an escalate and confront approach eventually because the US will force it to. Nothing has happened in Venezuela, Iran, Syria or North Korea yet so no reason for Russia to change its approach. Perhaps only a full scale attack on Iran will get Russia moving, but the US can’t put boots on the ground in Iran, the US has got no money, so that leaves a bombing campaign as the only possible scenario. Iran will of course light up Saudi Arabia which will drive the oil price up which will suit Russia just fine, and will make the US’s shale oil operations profitable.

    VeteransToday is currently speculating on a false flag attack on a US aircraft carrier by an Israeli sub to be blamed on Iran.

    there are few stories to tell about white people save exploitation and creative domination like racism: creative yet relevant lies about history, about lies generally.

    when a white personal speaks it is either a creative lie or the repetition of one they have been taught that justifies exploitation of the rest of the world

    american culture, the whole continent, its real culture of creative survival in the arts of life is of the people of color in america..Africans mostly, Native Americans etc. that is why honestly searches should rightly bring mostly such faces

    I was looking at Evo Morales recently, as closely as I could and found him to be a particularly impressive person and figure. I can’t recall so many Americans as impressive to observe. a couple white american figures who come to mind are JFK and Fidel Castro. Maybe Allende’

    Apart from Morales we have had people of color like Malcolm X.. a more impressive person in routine life you would not meet in a months journey, with a resume to match, a personality and life endlessly interesting, a brilliant and creative mind.

    white society does not produce so many like Malcolm was. and when such white people poke their heads up white society decapitates them quickly, so we don’t get to know them well enough: they do not get opportunity to really develop as who they are

    Dude, no-one just enters Russia. Muslims have always been part of Russia, ever since the days of the Tzars.

    The Muslims typically live in the outlying regions, not in the heart land. Those venturing into the heartland are very, very well aware of the aggressiveness and abilities of the native Christian Russians. What Muslims get away with in Europe is non existent in the Russian heartlands.

    Due to the strength and belligerence of the Russian Christian culture, Muslims can never take over there. It is actually more likely that the Russia heartlands will run out of Christian Russian’s than Muslim’s take over. Measures are being taken to encourage the Russian Christians to reproduce a bit more than they currently are.

    That’s not quite right…some of it is……Who is inviting the Chechens into Christian Russia?

    The Chechen’s number just over a million people so they are no threat to Russia. If anything most of Russia’s special forces are probably Chechen as is probably most of Russian boots on the ground in Syria. In fact, most Russian volunteers in Donetsk are probably Chechen Muslim, the average Russian Christian is a bit hesitant of dying but the Muslims don’t have that problem. Muslims make excellent front line troops, when they are on your own side that is.

    Why would Russia want to annihilate the Muslims in the Caucuses, they are Russian citizens. Islam has always been part of Russia. Russia’s biggest problem in the Caucasus right now is probably Georgia, and they are Christian.

    In some Russian circles the talk is about getting rid of Russia’s Caucasus territories as they are a drain on the Russian economy. But this is the traitors talk, they want the Caucasus to be under foreign control, and Russia as well actually. Russia doesn’t want to extend its borders, its even leaving Christian Russian’s to die in Ukraine and elsewhere rather than extending its borders to protect them. This is a very short sighted in my view.

Most have never heard of the Byzantine empire let alone Moldova and have a firm belief that Greece and Rome were the conduit of satanism to the ‘pure’ north via Greek philosophy and Christianity. Add un-European racialist obsessions, secularism (or conversely the deranged US protestantism) , a tenuous-to-nonexistent grip on geography, and extreme Hitler / ‘Aryan’ Germany worship to this picture and the ‘Europe’ one reads about through the US Alt Right lens is so distorted as to be unrecognisable to Europeans….

    This is not what I said and only reflects your assumptions and preconceptions.

    The engineered migration is a completely separate phenomenon from the simple fact that European countries traditionally define themselves in terms of culture, language and religion instead of ‘race’. Being adjacent to both Africa and Asia these neighbouring peoples of just-next-door continents are known and familiar – and have been variously friends, allies, enemies, conquerors and subjects… changing over time. There has been a black pope, a black Byzantine emperor, a black Danish queen for example. Both Pushkin and Dumas were half black. This was regarded as exotic (positive), not alien (negative).

    Europe itself was composed of waves of migration from the east over millennia; and trade, war and inter-marriage has over millennia greatly complicated the gene pool both in Europe and in Africa and Asia – it goes both ways. Thus to speak of European ‘racial purity’ is absurd and Hitler – who borrowed this discourse from US eugenicists (as was stated at Nuremberg) – was unique in that matter. There may indeed be some pockets of ‘purity’ in Europe but these would be the aborigines of the far north like the Sami and probably even this would be wrong.

    Further, the modern division into sovereign states means that there are many smaller groups inside a nation state. Being greek for example was and still is defined as having a Greek education, speaking the Greek language, and Orthodoxy. Thus the left-over Albanians, Bulgarians etc within the new Greek state became Greek, as did the nomadic Vlachs, Sarakatzani etc. This applies to Russia with the exception of the religious requirement (for obvious reasons) – and versions of these cultural requirements apply all over Europe. Through the various empires’ intermarriages there is also a longstanding mixed-race population in Europe too, none of which matters very much and could be absorbed.

    In contrast, the engineered migration is clearly understood as an act of aggression/undeclared war/subjection by the US administration against Europe, amongst its many other acts of aggression and occupation. In the same way the mercenaries and fundamentalised islamic movements are also clearly understood as creations of the anglo-american-israeli empire against the islamic world.

    Thus there are the longstanding algerian-origin and Caribbean-origin French, who are French and participate in the Gilets Jaunes – versus – the new African migrants who are definitely not French.

    The problem created by the migration is not enmity toward the migrants per se but due to their mass the inability to absorb them culturally – it is a problem of non-compatible cultures. This is not a matter of ‘superior’ or ‘inferior’ civilisations a la Bernard Lewis but the continued existence (preservation) of Europe’s culture/civilisation. As Thierry Meyssen said so succinctly, you can’t function with both Friday AND Sunday as holy days.
