Intro: not a pretty picture

Let’s begin with a disclaimer: in this article, I will assume that there will be a US Presidential election in the Fall. Right now, it appears to be likely that this election will take place (there appear to be no legal way to cancel or delay it), but this is by no means certain (see here for a machine translated and very interesting article by one Russian analyst, who predicts a diarchy after the election). Right now, the state of the US society is both extremely worried (and for good reason) and potentially explosive. It is impossible to predict what a well-executed false flag attack could do to the US. There is also the possibility of either a natural disaster (hurricane, earthquake, etc.) or even an unnatural one (considering the condition of the US infrastructure, this is almost inevitable) which could precipitate some kind of state of emergency or martial law to “protect” the people. Finally, though at this point in time I don’t see this as very likely, there is always the possibility of a coup of some kind, maybe a “government of national unity” with the participation of both parties which, as Noam Chomsky correctly points out, are basically only two factions of what could be called the Business Party. There might come a point when they decide to drop this pretense too (just look at how many other pretenses the US ruling elites have dropped in the last decade or so).

Alexander Solzhenitsyn used to explain that all governments can be placed on a continuum ranging from, on one end, “states whose power is based on their authority” to, on the other end, “states whose authority is based on their power“. In the real world, most states are somewhere between these two extremes. But it is quite obvious that the US polity currently has gone very far down the “states whose authority is based on their power” path and to speak of any kind of “moral authority” of US politicians is really a joke. The (probable) upcoming “choice” between Donald “grab them by the pussy” Trump and Joe “creepy uncle” Biden will make this joke even more laughable.

Right now, the most powerful force in the US political system must be the financial sector. And, of course, there are many other powerful interest groups (MIC, Israel Lobby, the CIA and the ridiculously bloated Intel community, Big Pharma, the US Gulag, the corporate media, Oil, etc.) who all combine their efforts (just like a vector does in mathematics) to produce a “resulting vector” which we call “US policies”. That is in theory. In practice, you have several competing “policies” vying for power and influence, both on the domestic and on international front. Often these policies are mutually exclusive.

Last, but certainly not least, the level of corruption in the US is at least as bad as, say, in the Ukraine or in Liberia, but rather than being on the street and petty cash level, the corruption in the US is counted in billions of dollars.

All in all, not a pretty sight (see here for a good analysis of the decline of US power).

Yet the US remains a nuclear power and still has a lot of political influence worldwide and thus this is not a country anyone can ignore. Including Russia.

A quick look at Russia

Before looking into Russian options in relation to the US, we need to take a quick look at how Russia has been faring this year. The short of it would be: not too well. The Russian economy has shrunk by about 10% and the small businesses have been devastated by the combined effects of 1) the economic policies of the Russian government and Central Bank, and 2) the devastating economic impact of the COVID19 pandemic, and 3) the full-spectrum efforts of the West, mostly by the Anglosphere, to strangle Russia economically. Politically, the “Putin regime” is still popular, but there is a sense that it is getting stale and that most Russians would prefer to see more dynamic and proactive policies aimed, not only to help the Russian mega-corporations, but also to help the regular people. Many Russians definitely have a sense that the “little guy” is being completely ignored by fat cats in power and this resentment will probably grow until and unless Putin decides to finally get rid of all the Atlantic Integrationists aka the “Washington consensus” types which are still well represented in the Russian ruling circles, including the government. So far, Putin has remained faithful to his policy of compromises and small steps, but this might change in the future as the level of frustration in the general population is likely to only grow with time.

That is not to say that the Kremlin is not trying. Several of the recent constitutional amendments adopted in a national vote had a strongly expressed “social” and “patriotic” character and they absolutely horrified the “liberal” 5th columnists who tried their best two 1) call for a boycott, and 2) denounce thousands of (almost entirely) imaginary violations of the proper voting procedures, and to 3) de-legitimize the outcome by declaring the election a “fraud”. None of that worked: the participation was high, very few actual violations were established (and those that were, had no impact on the outcome anyway) and most Russians accepted that this outcome was the result of the will of the people. Furthermore, Putin has made public the Russian strategic goals for 2030,which are heavily focused on improving the living and life conditions of average Russians (for details, see here). It is impossible to predict what will happen next, but the most likely scenario is that Russia has several, shall we say, “bumpy” years ahead, both on the domestic and on the international front.

What can Russia reasonably hope for?

ORDER IT NOW

This is really the key question: in the best of situations, what can Russia really hope for in the next elections? I would argue that there is really very little which Russia can hope for, if only because the russophobic hysteria started by the Democrats to defeat Trump has now apparently been completely endorsed by the Trump administration and the all the members of Congress. As for the imperial propaganda machine, it now manages to simultaneously declare that Russia tried to “steal” COVID vaccine secrets from the West AND that Russian elites were given a secret COVID vaccine this Spring. As for the US Dems, they are already announcing that the Russians are spreading “disinformation” about Biden. Talk about PRE-traumatic stress disorder (to use the phrase coined by my friend Gilad Atzmon)…

Although I have no way of knowing what is really taking place in the delusional minds of US politicians, I am strongly suspecting that the latest hysteria about “Russia stealing COV19 vaccine secrets” is probably triggered by the conclusion of the US intel community that Russia will have a vaccine ready before the US does. This is, of course, something absolutely unthinkable for US politicians who, (sort of) logically conclude that “if these Russkies got a vaccine first, they *must* have stolen it from us” or something similar (see here for a good analysis of this). And if the Chinese get there first, same response. After all, who in the US legacy media would ever even mention that Russian or Chinese researchers might be ahead of their US colleagues? Nobody, of course.

I would argue that this mantric Russia-bashing is something which will not change in the foreseeable future. For one thing, since the imperial ruling elites have clearly lost control of the situation, they really have no other option left than to blame it all on some external agent. The “terrorist threat” has lost a lot of traction over the past years, the “Muslim threat” is too politically incorrect to openly blame it all on Islam, as for the other boogeymen which US Americans like to scare themselves at night with (immigrants, drug dealers, sex offenders, “domestic terrorists”, etc.) they simply cannot be blamed for stuff like a crashing economy. But Russia, and China, can.

In fact, ever since the (self-evidently ridiculous) “Skripal case” the collective West has proven that it simply does not have the spine to say “no”, or even “maybe”, to any thesis energetically pushed forward by the AngloZionist propaganda machine. Thus no matter how self-evidently silly the imperial propaganda is, the people in the West have been conditioned (literally) to accept any nonsense as “highly likely” as long as it is proclaimed with enough gravitas by politicians and their legacy ziomedia. As for the leaders of the EU, we already know that they will endorse any idiocy coming out of Washington or London in the name of “solidarity”.

Truth be told, most Russian politicians (with the notable exception of the official Kremlin court jester, Zhirinovskii) and analysts never saw Trump as a potential ally or friend. The Kremlin was especially cautious, which leads me to believe that the Russian intelligence analysts did a very good job evaluating Trump’s psyche and they quickly figured out that he was no better than any other US politician. Right now, I know of no Russian analyst who would predict that relations between the US and Russia will improve in the foreseeable future. If anything, most are clearly saying that “guys, we better get used to this” (accusations, sanctions, accusations, sanctions, etc. etc. etc.). Furthermore, it is pretty obvious to the Russians that while Crimea and MH17 were the pretexts for western sanctions against Russia, they were not the real cause. The real cause of the West’s hatred for Russia is as simple as it is old: Russia cannot be conquered, subdued, subverted or destroyed. They’ve been at it for close to 1,000 years and they still are at it. In fact, each time they fail to crush Russia, their russophobia increases to even higher levels (phobia both in the sense of “fear” and in the sense of “hatred”).

Simply put – there is nothing which Russia can expect from the upcoming election. Nothing at all. Still, that does not mean that things are not better than 4 or 8 years ago. Let’s look at what changed.

The big difference between now and then

What did Trump’s election give to the world?

I would say four years for Russia to fully prepare for what might be coming next.

I would argue that since at least Russia and the AngloZionist Empire have been at war since at least 2013, when Russia foiled the US plan to attack Syria under the pretext that it was “highly likely” that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons against civilians (in reality, a textbook case of a false flag organized by the Brits), This means that Russia and the Empire have been at war since at least 2013, for no less than seven years (something which Russian 6th columnists and Neo-Marxists try very hard to ignore).

True, at least until now, this was has been 80% informational, 15% economic and only 5% kinetic, but this is a real existential war of survival for both sides: only one side will walk away from this struggle. The other one will simply disappear (not as a nation or a people, but as a polity; a regime). The Kremlin fully understood that and it embarked on a huge reform and modernization of the Russian armed forces in three distinct ways:

  1. A “general” reform of the Russian armed forces which had to be modernized by about 80%. This part of the reform is now practically complete.
  2. A specific reform to prepare the western and southern military districts for a major conventional war against the united West (as always in Russian history) which would involve the First Guards Tank Army and the Russian Airborne Forces.
  3. The development of bleeding-edge weapons systems with no equivalent in the West and which cannot be countered or defeated; these weapons have had an especially dramatic impact upon First Strike Stability and upon naval operations.

While some US politicians understood what was going on (I think of Ron Paul, see here), most did not. They were so brainwashed by the US propaganda that they were sure that no matter what, “USA! USA! USA!”. Alas for them, the reality was quite different.

Russian officials, by the way, have confirmed that Russia was preparing for war. Heck, the reforms were so profound and far reaching, that it would have been impossible for the Russians to hide what they were doing (see here for details; also please see Andrei Martyanov’s excellent primer on the new Russian Navy here).

While no country is ever truly prepared for war, I would argue that by 2020 the Russians had reached their goals and that now Russia is fully prepared to handle any conflict the West might throw at her, ranging from a small border incident somewhere in Central Asia to a full-scaled war against the US/NATO in Europe.

Folks in the West are now slowly waking up to this new reality (I mentioned some of that here), but it is too late. In purely military terms, Russia has now created such a qualitative gap with the West that the still existing quantitative gap is not sufficient to guarantee a US/NATO victory. Now some western politicians are starting to seriously freak out (see this lady, for example), but most Europeans are coming to terms with two truly horrible realities:

  1. Russia is much stronger than Europe and, even much worse,
  2. Russia will never attack first (which is a major cause of frustration for western russophobes)

As for the obvious solution to this problem, having friendly relations with Russia is simply unthinkable for those who made their entire careers peddling the Soviet (and now Russian) threat to the world.

But Russia is changing, albeit maybe too slowly (at least for my taste). As I mentioned last week, a number of Polish, Ukrainian and Baltic politicians have declared that the Zapad2020 military maneuvers which are supposed to take place in southern Russia and the Caucasus could be used to prepare an attack on the West (see here for a rather typical example of this nonsense). In the past, the Kremlin would only have made a public statement ridiculing this nonsense, but this time around Putin did something different. Right after he saw the reaction of these politicians, Putin ordered a major and UNSCHEDULED military readiness exercise which involved no less than 150,000 troops, 400 aircraft & 100 ships! The message here was clear:

  1. Yes, we are much more powerful than you are and
  2. No, we are not apologizing for our strength anymore

And, just to make sure that the message is clear, the Russians also tested the readiness of the Russian Airborne Forces units near the city of Riazan, see for yourself:

This response is, I think, the correct one. Frankly, nobody in the West is listening to what the Kremlin has to say, so what is the point of making more statements which in the future will be ignored equally as they have been in the past.

If anything, the slow realization that Russia is more powerful than NATO would be most helpful in gently prodding EU politicians to change their tune and return back to reality. Check out this recent video of Sarah Wagenknecht, a leading politician of the German Left and see for yourself:

The example of Sahra Wagenknecht is interesting, because she is from Germany, one of the countries of northern Europe; traditionally, northern European powers have been much more anti-Russian than southern Europeans, so it is encouraging to see that the anti-Putin and anti-Russia hysteria is not always being endorsed by everybody.

But if things are very slowly getting better in the EU, in the bad old US of A things are only getting worse. Even the Republicans are now fully on board the Russia-hating float (right behind a “gay pride” one I suppose) and they are now contributing their own insanity to the cause, as this article entitled “Congressional Republicans: Russia should be designated state sponsor of terror” shows (designating Russia as a terrorist state is an old idea of the Dems, by the way).

Russian options for the Fall

In truth, Russia does not have any particularly good options towards the US. Both parties are now fully united in their rabid hatred of Russia (and China too, of course). Furthermore, while there are many well-funded and virulently anti-Russian organizations in the US (Neo-cons, Papists, Poles, Masons, Ukrainians, Balts, Ashkenazi Jews, etc.), Russian organizations in the US like this one, have very little influence or even relevance.

Banderites marching in the US
Banderites marching in the US

However, as the chaos continues to worsen inside the US and as US politicians continue to alienate pretty much the entire planet, Russia does have a perfect opportunity to weaken the US grip on Europe. The beauty in the current dynamic is that Russia does not have to do anything at all (nevermind anything covert or illegal) to help the anti-EU and anti-US forces in Europe: All she needs to do is to continuously hammer in the following simple message: “the US is sinking – do you really want to go down with it?”.

There are many opportunities to deliver that message. The current US/Polish efforts to prevent the EU from enjoying cheap Russian gas might well be the best example of what we could call “European suicide politics”, but there are many, many more.

Truth be told, neither the US nor the EU are a top priority for Russia, at least not in economic terms. The moral credibility of the West in general can certainly be described as dead and long gone. As for the West military might, it is only a concern to the degree that western politicians might be tempted to believe their own propaganda about their military forces being the best in the history of the galaxy. This is why Russia regularly engages in large surprise exercises: to prove to the West that the Russian military is fully ready for anything the West might try. As for the constant move of more and more US/NATO forces closer to the borders of Russia, they are offensive in political terms, but in military terms, getting closer to Russia only means that Russia will have more options to destroy you. “Forward deployment” is really a thing of the past, at least against Russia.

With time, however, and as the US federal center loses even more of its control of the country, the Kremlin might be well-advised to try to open some venues for “popular diplomacy”, especially with less hostile US states. The weakening of the Executive Branch has already resulted in US governors playing an increasingly important international role and while this is not, strictly speaking, legal (only the federal government has the right to engage in foreign policy), the fact is that this has been going on for years already. Another possible partner inside the US for Russian firms would be US corporations (especially now that they are hurting badly). Finally, I think that the Kremlin ought to try to open channels of communication with the various small political forces in the US which are clearly not buying into the official propaganda: libertarians, (true) liberals and progressives, paleo-conservatives.

ORDER IT NOW

What we are witnessing before our eyes is the collapse of the US federal center. This is a dangerous and highly unstable moment in our history. But from this crisis opportunities will arise. The best thing Russia can do now is to simply remain very careful and vigilant and wait for new forces to appear on the US political scene.

    I would add that Russia should also start opening channels of communication with various organizations in Canada, especially those in the far north. While Canada is small politically, it is vastly bigger than the U.S. in natural resources, very strategically located and right next door to Russia.

    Why anyone in the west would have to love Russia if no one in the east (of Europe) does it either. Why should any other country in the world love Russia when Russia have sold them all out to the western “partners” (Serbia, Cuba, Vietnam, N. Korea, Libya etc. etc.). Russia is having what it deserves. Russia is disgusting.

  5. I really agree with you that the “blame Russia” and “blame China” thing has gotten out of hand in US politics. Whether it will turn into a shooting war seems doubtful to me, as the government is still full of people who are looking out for their own interests and know that a full-sized war with Russia, China, Iran or whoever will not advance their interests.

    But who would have guessed, a few years ago, that “Russian asset” would become the all-purpose insult for Democrats to use, not just against Republicans, but against other Democrats?

    With Republicans I think that “blame China” is stronger. China makes a good scapegoat for the economic situation in the United States. But convincing the working class that China is the source of their problems (and that Mr. MAGA is going to solve those problems by standing up to China) requires ignorance of the crucial facts about the trade relationship between those two countries.

    Namely, that the trade deficit exists only because the Federal Reserve chooses to create huge amounts of new dollars each year for export to other countries, and it’s only possible for US exports to fall behind imports so badly (and thus put so many American laborers out of work) because the Fed is making up the difference by exporting dollars. Granted, it isn’t a policy that the US can change without harming the interests of its own upper classes; at the same time, it isn’t a policy that China could force on the US without the people in charge of the United States wanting it.

    This is a topic I’ve dealt with a few times on my own blog.

    …at worst, the crisis will move to a new stage….

    Highly likely.

    I think Trump can win, though, if he successfully hangs the escalating Antifa/BLM mayhem around the Democrat’s necks. Normal, salt-of-the-earth-type Americans won’t vote for the party of Maoist mayhem. I just hope their numbers are still sufficient. So, really, the mayhem needs to worsen and get ultra-bad, and Trump needs to carefully respond with just enough law enforcement to bait the Democrats into defending the insurrectionists and their tactics and loudly condemning Trump’s “fascist” response. Normal people will see the true story and in the privacy of the voting booth, not vote Democrat. And if you think the other side lost their minds after the 2016 election….

    Thanks Saker – I would have loved it, had Alaska been able to hang on to the 90s relationship with Russia. It was a perfect match, except that Russian economy { as we were told} was just tanking, and they had no money to throw into the tourist trade. Not that us Alaskans, expected much more than what our bush villages had to offer. lol But , I’m afraid this will never happen again, with the Zio freaks in charge of the US. I recall when I was flying and living in McGrath in the 90s, that a womens Russian helicopter team dropped down to refuel and I was workin on my cessna about 50 yrds away. I saw about 6+ really good looking Russian chicks come out of those choppers, and us guys were floored ! We started to communicate with them, they told us that they were re -tracing the WW II lend lease route and were headed to the lower 48. Just about the time we started getting close tho, an old Lady colonel jumped out and put the girls in place – lol . I also remember the Magadan hockey team came over to play against our University teams Anchorage and Fairbanks. My neighbor here in Kryme, was on that Russian team – small world.

    after WWI, WWII, ally of China won the World War.
    after Korea war, NK, ally of China, keep their regime in their own hand.
    after India-China war, Pakistan, ally of China, keep their regime in their own hand against expansive Indians.
    after Vietnam war, Vietnam, ally of China , keep their regime in their own hand.

  15. For what it’s worth: “Trump & Barr cancelling election” – Veterans Today (VT)

    VT is a site that combines some impressive disclosures of real truth, with some odd stuff that is fabricated – the site’s co-supremo says they intentionally publish self-discrediting fake stuff so they don’t get shut down for printing the true material, the reader must decide what is real

    This was published with anti-Trump intentions but maybe it’s what America needs? -It’s a fun read in any case

    Donald Trump has issued a [secret] presidential order cancelling the USA election based on a national emergency, COVID 19 and Chinese interference tied to “treason” by Joe Biden and key American political figures whose names are already on arrest warrants

    Attorney General Barr had, some weeks ago, presented Trump an opinion allowing him to overrule an election using emergency powers

    Arrest warrants for more than a dozen state governors and a similar number of mayors of major cities have also been issued

    GOP operatives across the US are meeting secretly with police officials telling them to no longer take orders from civil authority and that they are now, by presidential order, members of a secret militia answerable only to Donald Trump

  20. “…until and unless Putin decides to finally get rid of all the Atlantic Integrationists aka the “Washington consensus” types which are still well represented in the Russian ruling circles, including the government.”

    Putin’s regime is merely a less unbearable version of the Yeltsin regime, with open loot by oligarchs replaced by less overt loot by smaller scale actors. Putin is exactly as beholden to the neoliberal capitalist system as Yeltsin. To expect Putin to change sides as this point is ludicrous.

    “…Russia and the Empire have been at war since at least 2013, for no less than seven years (something which Russian 6th columnists and Neo-Marxists try very hard to ignore).”

    I have no idea what a “neo” Marxist is (apart from a blatant made up term to taint us by association with the neo-Nazis), but as a Marxist, which the Saker obviously is not, it’s obvious to me that the Imperialist States of America has been at war with Russia since the Yeltsinite attack on the Moscow parliament in 1993, and probably from the failed patriotic coup of 1991. If we ignore the Saker’s idea of a war since 2013 it’s only because we know it’s twenty years out of date.

    Things will never improve between Amerikastan and Russia and don’t need to. Amerikastan is sinking and will sink; Putin will, if he continues on the neoliberal capitalist track, sink Russia as well in the end.

    If Amerikastanis love the zios so much why don’t they give them a homeland in Amerikastan? That would solve everything.

  22. The video link to Sahra Wagenknecht’s report was the best part of this article although the article itself was spot on if one has any respect for reality.

    I keep waiting for Germany to tell NATO and the US to get the hell out, but their political establishment is just as corrupt as the US’s.

    Interesting.

    Just as an aside, the “sanctions” levied against Russia by the Untied States might have been the best thing that ever happened to Russia. It has to a great extent insulated Russia from parasitic finance, and encouraged domestic industry.

    One is reminded that, from 1976 to about 1965, the United States was a functioning autarchy, foreign trade was never more than about 3% of the GDP, and within this isolation and with abundant resources because the strongest industrial power the world had ever seen. It was only after ‘free’ trade and globalism that America started too decline…

    The biggest blow the West could strike against Russia, would be to drop the sanctions. Let the big banks come in, let them buy up the politicians and extract rents and tie the country up in unplayable debts. But the West, for all it’s arrogance and (for now) power, is too blind to see that…

    That is very selective history, to say the least.

    I do think it true that a country can be allied with China and not be ruined, as long as that country is ready and able to resist Chinese cultural influence. The basic history of China, regardless of dynasty (Marxism is a dynasty) is that 10-12% of the population owns/controls 60-75% of the nation’s wealth. There is a middle class of another 15-20%, and everybody else is desperately poor.

    The Elites of the Anglo-Zionist Empire are reproducing that as quickly as they can. But they are doing so not from Chinese patterns and influence but from Jewish patterns and influence and from WASP patterns and influence vis a vis non-WASP natives of the British Isles.

    All in all, not a pretty sight (see here for a good analysis of the decline of US power)

    Broken link. Please fix.

  37. Lots of people can’t see the forest for the trees. Go back and and look at history. The Bolshevik take over and plunder of Russia was an entirely Zionist Jewish enterprise financed by massive agricultural, industrial and financial aid from Wall St, the U.S. government and other International (Jew) bankers such as Jacob Schiff who gave invested 20 million (in 1917 dollars). This Zionist tyranny that cost the lives of at least 30 million Russians was kept afloat initially by Red Cross aid funneled to the Bolsheviks and then by 5 year programs by the U.S. (see Anthony Sutton, Wall St. and The Bolshevik Revolution) or not only would the communists (Jews) never have been able to get in power, they would have been eliminated very quickly.

    The USSR was set up in WW1 along with the bridgehead in Palestine for strategic positioning and resource control. The Germans were beat back and the monarchies mostly destroyed in Europe so that everything was in place for the second phase using WW2 to finish the Germans off, deliver half of Europe into Jew control and set up the USSR in the thesis – antithesis game of the Cold War. Russia was a country that barely had any native technology, could not even feed itself and depended on Jewmerica for it’s survival but we were constantly told by the MSM how powerful they were.

    The Zionist front of communism being a transient facade has now been thrown in the trash as Lenin said it would be. The Zionists have now moved on to the phony War On Terror after manufacturing 911 as their catalyst for “a New Pearl Harbor” as called for by the Jew Neo Cons, Trotskyite followers of the Hegelian Apostle Leo Strauss.

    Russia is still part of the Zionist program as is the Zionist created entity of China. They both will continue to be built up. Then expect them to combine forces militarily for an attack on Jewmerica. This will set up a crisis situation where the Zionists will be able to implement Martial Law that will give them the excuse to initiate the U.N. Sustainable Development Initiative, Agenda 2030-21 to eliminate property rights and therefore all liberties.

    If this sounds farfetched then look around at all the cucked idiots going around in useless masks breathing their own waste products back into their lungs fearing the latest hoax perpetrated by the Zionist criminals to condition the barnyard animals, and use as a cover for the theft of trillions more by the banking cartel for their Wall St. cronies as they are setting up to make even more on another dangerous fake vaccine.

Saker does appear to present some valid insights regarding the relationship between nationalist Russia and globalist gadzillionaires who own virtually every significant institution in the U.$. Though disturbingly still possessed of (or is it by) a presumably privately owned central bank, it is an uncontrovertible fact that a considerable majority of the Russian people, as evidenced by their recent plebiscite, have confidence in President Putin and the general thrust of his policies.

    Putin has connected with something deep within the soul of Mother Russia and its people, the Narod. Without question there is no genuine political leader in this ruptured republic. The prostiticians in the District of Corruption are all about money, power and materialistic prestige. Congre$$ consists (with precious few exceptions) of a gaggle of waiters, with hands out for tips from the financial elite and their archons and minions. There is scarcely a whiff on integrity in the whole damn scene. Both political parties are simply the right and left arms of the plutocratic oligarchy–all too much of it being of the Judeocratic persuasion. These are facts. The machinery of state power is totally in the hands of scoundrels and thieves. By comparison, Putin and his administration do work to unify and strengthen their country.

    Most of the big corporations are interlinked in the Zionist network. Same board members move from one to the other. Another part of the problem is that whenever you get big government, you get big corruption. The gov. is now involved in everything so the the Zionists are in a position that enables them to pass favors on to their cronies and damage anyone that doesn’t go along with the program. Most people can be bought out and the profit driven corporations are even worse.

    Russia has not recovered from the plunder of the Bolshevik Jews. That was just a brutal form of monopoly capitalism that is the essence of the Zionist syndicate we all are up against. Today piratized not privatized Russia is suffering a less severe form but it is estimated that half Jew Putin and his oligarch cronies control ap. 30% of the Russian economy. all of this insider theft was “codified and Legalized” by Larry Summers and the Harvard Jews. Same thing is happening in Jewmerica and moving lots faster now with the theft under cover of the fake virus. Don’t forget in 08-09 the bailout for billionaires cost the regular economy trillions then too. No problem, the Jews at Black Rock picked up some great bargains as they will this time.

    Now that team orange clown (with the full support of congress) has done away with the doctrine of mutually assured destruction, apparently replacing it with the concept of a “winnable” nuclear war (impliedly by way of a devastating first strike), the time may come when Russia may have to either strike first or be struck first.

    Also, what about the case where the empire is finally successful in starting a war against Iran, for example, and the war goes badly for the empire (i.e. Iran is inflicting some serious damage), whereupon the empire resorts to nukes. Would Russia just sit back and watch, or would Russia then realize that the monster has to be put down?

    “The real cause of the West’s hatred for Russia is as simple as it is old: Russia cannot be conquered, subdued, subverted or destroyed.”

    In a sense that’s true as far as it goes, but it really doesn’t explain very much. Lots of countries are unable to subdue, subvert or conquer other countries but that in itself doesn’t generally lead to “hatred.” The simpler and more profound explanation is that the empire does what it does because it’s evil. And the evil empire is analogous to an aggressive cancer: either the cancer wins and the patient dies, or the cancer is completely eradicated and the patient survives. There is no peaceful coexistence with the evil empire just like there is no peaceful coexistence with glioblastoma. You cannot negotiate with it to find some kind of a reasonable compromise.

    The U.S. has had the benefit of a dynamic free enterprise system with limited gov. and individual liberties to drive the capitalist system of opportunity form all, but this is fading away because of the socialist policies implemented in the last 110 years that have consolidated the wealth at the top, massively increased gov. regulations and spending on transfer payments and on huge military expenditures in the Zionist manufactured conflicts since WW1 until the present wars for Greater Israel.

    The transfer of wealth is a built in feature of the central banking cartel along with the manipulation of interest rates to create the boom and bust cycles in order for the insiders to game the market. The bailout for billionaires program of 08-09 and now the new theft of trillions under cover of the fake virus will accelerate currency depreciation and further destroy businesses, jobs and whats left of the middle class. Standard level of depreciation since the Zionist installed the banking cartel in 1913 has been 50% every 17 years. This moves wealth to the top.

    For Saker it is always about Russia, Russia, Russia…Sure, Russia is a big world power, it used to be and it is now. It is so mostly because of its military, which draws its strength and know-how from the USSR (meaning it is not strictly Russian). However, Russia will never again be a superpower as the USSR had been. It was possible then only because of the (historically) unparalleled appeal of the communist ideology. Firstly and objectively, Russia does not have an economy necessary to support such a status. Secondly, Russia has no sufficient population which, again, is a limiting factor to its economy. Putin probably realized that although he did not realize that the Putin-inspired immigration from the former Muslim republic of the USSR will not alleviate the problem. But again, who would even want to go to today’s Russia if not Asiatic muslims. It will slowly but surely make Russia not much different from the West. Muscovites, just like New Yorkers are already leaving the city, those who can afford.
    And, subjectively, Russia or the Russians don’t have the most important ingredient fort the superpower status – the MENTALITY. The recent (1990-2020) Russian history clearly displays that. It shows that in order to realize the centuries old dreams of the few (so called “elites”) Russia as a nation and as country had put itself to the downward trajectory: As an empire it sold Alaska; as a civilization – it destroyed itself by dismantling the rest of the empire, the USSR. As an ally it abandoned and handed over the most Russophile german friend and ally E. Honecker and others to the “partners” in the west. And, as an orthodox and Slavic “brother” it betrayed and abandoned the only people that have always loved Russia – the Serbs. As an ally it behaved recklessly and treacherously.

    To Wally and Herald: How many Presidential election circuses have you guys seen. Probably a lot of them like me. Any adult in Jewmerica should know that the Presidency is totally controlled by the Zionists. It has been since 1912 with the Wilson ad. Look at the two top contenders both put up and paid for by the Zionist Jews. The puffed up adolescent ignoramus Trump couldn’t get elected dog catcher in a real unrigged election process. Same thing for the professional long term crook and senile self professed Zionist Biden. These are just puppet actors that the Zionist rulers prop up to make the goyim think they have a choice. Both fake parties put up a show about the Chinese, the Russians, the impeachment, abortion, etc. but the real issues as far as the Zionist agenda of Wars for Israel or more money for Israel or anything else that matters to the criminal zionist syndicate is not questioned by either side.

    Do you not realize that there has to be a dichotomy presented to the goyim? The zionists are not going to tell you “this is our agenda no matter what.” They want you to believe that all of them are getting the best deal for you that is possible. The issues that Wally mentions are part of the often used Hegelian Dialectic. To present the extreme (for now) antithesis and then offer you the alternative, “well it could have been worse” when that was the program all along. This has been going on for ever. A good example is Britain in the early 1900’s and how Parliament and the people were tricked into the horrendous WW1 by the small elite group of Zionists.

This made conversion of Russia to the neoliberal finance and ‘universal value” system even less likely than the conversion to Roman Catholicism prophesied at Fatima. Putin decided that Russia would live by its own values, thank you very much. Russia could still have been an arms-length ally, but Anglo-Zionist geopolitical extremism forced him to make cause with a clearly adversarial China, and encouraged him to circumvent the western currency system as well.

    But peoples within the west were also developing this NGTOW (Nations Going Their Own Way) attitude. Hungary and Poland were already becoming thorns in the side of the EU over the “human value” immigration, and the elections of Trump and Brexit were further assertions of populist preferences. Other politicians like Wagenknecht, LePen and Salvini are nurturing this movement elsewhere. It remains to be seen whether the neoliberal oligarchy, by dialing up propaganda and censorship, and by using Orwellian cancel terrorism, can quell this awakening rebellion.

    So who do you think would be a better US President than Trump and why?

    A patriotic US president should do quite a few things:
    1. Drastically cut “defense” budget and withdraw US troops from most of ~600 bases the Empire has abroad.
    2. Normalize relations with other countries: current US foreign policy gives other countries the choice of being either obsequious vassals or enemies.
    3. Balance the budget.
    4. Heavily invest in crumbling US infrastructure.
    5. Revive industry in the US, which would require huge changes in taxation policies.
    6. Dramatically improve US education, from elementary school up.
    7. Reform US healthcare, with a view of making it healthcare, rather than extortion racket it is today.

    There are many other things, but anyone attempting to do even half of those listed would be promptly JFK’ed by the Deep State. That is why there is no one in the US politics decent enough to even talk about real problems, not to mention attempting to do what needs to be done to save the country. Hence, I can name no names.

    As things stand, even Trump is better than senile and corrupt Biden. But being better than that piece of shit is not a big achievement.

    China allowed Soviet arms through to North Vietnam and was herself giving weapons to them. The Soviets didn’t trust the Chinese though, so they preferred to transport more advanced weapons on ships rather than by train through China, to prevent the Chinese from getting a close look on these.
    China attacked Vietnam for invading Cambodia, but this war exposed the weakness of the Chinese Army. Deng Xiaoping was able to push through military reforms after the debacle.

    BLM and ANTIFA are proxy warrior groups for the Zionist Jews as laid out by the Frankfurt School to demoralize and destabilize western nations. These paid activists, opportunists and useful idiots could be taken care of by the local law enforcement as the constitution mandates if allowed to do so. The goal of the Zionist criminals is to create enough chaos and breakdown that people will demand that the national gov. step in with martial law. This is exactly what the Zionists want so they can get rid of the locally controlled police and implement a gestapo of thugs that are accountable only to the elite at the top.

    There is no rise in populism. Just the ongoing program of demoralization and destabilization as laid out in the Jews Frankfurt School. “Trump unleashed.” This obsequious puppet actor and cheerleader for Netanyahu and the thugs of Israel will do the same thing he has always done, talk about how he is Israels greatest friend and grovel before the Zionist agenda, nothing else.

    You throw out ambiguous terminology without defining it. The word democracy does not appear in either the Constitution or it’s companion document, the Declaration of Independence. This is because the founders understood that it always leads to tyranny and dictatorship. That is why the globalists always go out of their way to use the term and appropriate it for their subversive programs.

    Capitalism and free enterprise are the mainspring of human progress. Monopoly capitalism as practiced under big government socialism, communism or any system that supresses the individual rights to the “collective good” is a ploy used too grab power for a politically connected few.

    Populism is when the popular dissatisfaction of the masses is utilized by the Jew controlled media as in the Wall St. demonstrations by the useful idiots or anything the globalists want to disparage in order to nullify opposition. The Zionists will always send out a “savior” to rally the goyim with “hope and change” or “make Amer. great again.”

    The Zionists know that 95% of the cattle will never do anything as long as they get 1 meal per day (even a vegan meal). This is self evident when you can see how easy it was to get the barn yard animals to fall in line with the fake virus and the psychological methods (masks, isolation, distancing) in order to condition the goy.

    As far as influence goes, Russia can sit back and let the G-192 (the whole world) handle it. The G-192 is the UNCTAD bloc, and their capacity building initiative works at all levels of society: governments, firms, academic institutions, civil society organizations, arts and culture, common citizens and the people at large. A highly capable Occupy facilitator of my acquaintance was a UNESCO youth ambassador. The OHCHR has worked US civil society into treaty body and charter body review processes. Every authentic peace movement undertakes active international solidarity. The outside world is teaching Americans how to stop taking shit from their police state.

    “That is a hate of badly mistreated Serbs by criminals like Blair and Clinton.” Blair was hired as advisor by the current president of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, when he was prime minister. The current prime minister, Ana Brnabić, worked for various US consultancy firms on projects financed by USAid, an offshoot of the US State Department that the US uses as an instrument of “soft power” in foreign policy, while Hillary Clinton was sec. of state. She’s straight out of a Soros production floor. Serbs elected Vučić. Serbs gave him a 75% majority in parliament late June. Why should Russia trust such people?
    It is a historical fact that Russia has been Serbia’s ally, that she has come to Serbia’s rescue several times and that she has never been Serbia’s enemy, and it is a historical fact that Serbia has never been Russia’s ally. She has never supported any policy by Russia but she expects support from Russia.
    On the other hand, there are two countries Serbs truly admire, Germany and the UK, both countries that have bombed Serbia repeatedy during the 20th century and both countries responsible for turning 2 million Serbs into refugees during the 1990s.
    You don’t save people against their will. Serbs don’t want to be saved. They have sold their faith for a lunch.
    And as I said, it’s not hate, it’s contempt.

The last “brotherly” country that got something for nothing was Belarus, and it looks like this will end soon. I do hope that Putin won’t save Lukashenko, like he saved pathetic nonentity Yanuk.

    There are lots of problems with the governments version of the assassination story. Miles Mathis brings out some information on this worth considering. Mathis also covers JFK the queer. The gov. can come up with all kinds of stories involving women including Monroe (Mortensen-Baker).

    The USSR was a Zionist Jew enterprise from start to finish, totally dependent on Jewmerica’s constant agricultural, financial and industrial aid, read Hoover Institute researcher Anthony Sutton. He even shows photocopies of contracts. They were propagandized at first as the great “workers paradise” by the Jew MSM. Thousands of Amer. even sold there possessions, got on a ship and went to Russia where they were immediately thrown in the Gulag. Later this narrative was switched around by the Zionists, and the Russians became the great formidable enemy. This was just part of the thesis-antithesis hoax to swindle the taxpayers and drive bigger military appropriations. Cuba was all set up as part of this scam.

    Well I agree with you Mark, up to: “lost their empire and ruined the country”, altho’ from the POV of ordinary, working class men and women – they have certainly ruined their own country!

    What the Brit zionist-jew banksters have done is financially reeled back in their old empire – and positioned despots in place to keep bleeding those countries, esp. their former African colonies. See: The Spider’s Web: Britain’s Second Empire (Documentary) (1:18:01) https://youtu.be/np_ylvc8Zj8

    And to make matters worse, the the EU (which is really a a banksters’ cartel and not a democratic institution as it ignores national votes &/or forces nations to vote again until an affirmative vote is achieved on EU treaties) funds African nations’ opposition parties – to allow those countries to have the illusion of “democracy”. It also serves the ‘divide and conquer’ mantra of the ruling elites as well.

    But here’s the real sinister part – 3 months, or so, before their national elections, the EU pulls the plug on its funding and, surprise, surprise!, the opposition doesn’t win the election – so the despot continues in power for decades – bleeding the country via:
    – interest on debt,
    – privatizing their national assets, and
    – not paying a fair price for their nations’ resources.

    Imperial exploitation – big time!

    Yes, the Zionists now can take over financially instead of militarily using surrogates. As you point out the E.U. is just regional control and destruction of national sovereignty by the banking cartel implemented one region at a time. This disaster would have been avoided if the people had guarded their liberties, instead of buying into the transparent lies of the globalists.

    Carroll Quigley Quote

    “The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank…sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world.”

    ~ Carroll Quigley

    The Zionists have financial control over all countries of any consequence. They are very close to achieving total control with the imposition of their long planned feudal society. The goal of the Zionist Jews has always been the destruction of all the countries followed by a global totalitarian system run by them. I will put your video on my list to watch. Thanks.

    Just another propaganda piece from the Jew MSM whores. To change the election schedule would require a constitutional amendment. It is very important for the Zionists to maintain the Presidential election facade because it focuses the goyim’s attention on an event where both of the contenders have been approved by the top Zionists of the CFR and gives the appearance that the goyim are making a difference.

    History Prof. and CFR researcher Carrol Quigley:
    The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies… is a foolish idea. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.”

    This is what Jewmerica has had since the syphilitic puppet actor for the Jews, the near invalid Woodrow Wilson. Trump fills the same role. He is just a cheerleader for Greater Israel and the Kazar thug’s agenda.

    The bombastic often inane comments by Trump are scripted to imbue an image of a patriotic American that is making Jewmerica “great again.” This is done with all of the Presidential puppet actors as much as possible. The queer JFK (read Jerry Oppenheimer and Lawerence J. Quirk, also The Dark Side Of Camelot) was afflicted with Addisons disease and had back problems so bad that much of the time he could not walk up steps. Johnson made fun of him because it was known that JFK had an incurable STD. The MSM portrayed a Camelot image of a vigorous athletic and dedicated family man.

    As just one more (of many) example is Reagan. A Illinois sports caster, he was brought to California by the Chicago (Jew) mob where he was pimped by the big MCA Jew Lew Wasserman (read Dark Victory -Ronald Reagan, MCA and the Mob). He was a liberal while in his position as Pres. of the Screen Actors Guild but changed his stripes when he was moved over to be a political con man. He was always portrayed as a traditional hard working conservative who liked to chop wood and eat jelly beans. All just a stage play for the goyim. Trump does the bidding of the Zionists. There are only two qualifications to be President of Jewmerica. First they have to be a completely corrupt and second it has to be someone the Zionists have dirt on.

    “The USSR was a Zionist Jew enterprise from start to finish…”

    Not exactly; at least not “to finish.” The world is a more complicated place than you imagine. Stalin purged most of the jews from power in the USSR.

    The last straw may have been just after Israel was created. The USSR at first supported Israel, but Stalin then completely turned on zionist jews, apparently seeing them as ideologically conflicted and untrustworthy; they were a threat.

    Zionist jews do not support Arab nationalist governments, and since it’s a matter of historical fact that the USSR supported the Arab governments in the Arab-Israeli conflict, it’s clear that the USSR – at least from the early 50s onward – was not run by zionist jews.

    You have to understand that “communism” as conceived by Marx was just another jew scam. Communism, in any particular place, is only acceptable to jews when THEY are at the top, and that was the whole point of it: to enslave the non-jewish balance of humanity.

    Marx was the ultimate fraudster: a satanist pretending to be an atheist. He was the original social justice warrior – an egalitarian poseur pretending to do something good for the oppressed proletariat while robbing them of culture, religion, spirituality, etc. – anything and everything that might enable “the people” to resist their satanic depredations had to go. Communism, as devised AND IMPLEMENTED by jews, is the political embodiment of satanism, apparently conceived and implemented as a “spiritual jihad” against God. (In Biblical terms, jewish communists apparently seek to bring about the fulfillment of Isaiah 14:13,14).

    Jews apparently saw the USSR as a useful geopolitical platform to spread their satanism by force and fraud, throughout the whole world, but at some point, Stalin must have come to understand their intention and to successfully oppose it.

    So what happened? The jewish collective, having lost power in the USSR then used “the (corrupt) West” to oppose the evil USSR.

    Watched 57 minutes of the videos you recommended on the Spider Web. It brought out some good points, but became tedious on the Caribbean Islands. The elite control the governments and so they are therefore able to manipulate their finances to gain advantages not available to the rest of us. I don’t have a problem with them trying to escape taxes but the laws should be the same for everyone.

    This is the way the founders of the U.S. had set up our system so that all taxes, duties, imposts etc were apportioned according to the population. This low tax and very limited gov. caused huge economic growth never before seen. Had we stayed on that course instead of becoming a socialist European style crony tax and spend racket run by the Zionist Criminal syndicate we would be miles ahead in a system that did the greatest good for the greatest number of people. Many of the people on Unz promote the so called “public banking” and more taxes on investments. Until we drastically cut the size and scope of gov. and get rid of the banking cartel none of this will work.

    The Zionist elite have financial control. They have their operatives in most key positions in all governments of any consequence. This includes Russia and China. They are accomplishing financially much of what had formerly been done militarily. Britain has become mostly a financial intermediary in this process. The Anglo conspirators that began with the Boer War led by the Cecil Rhodes and Alfred Milner as documented by Gerry Docherty in “Hidden History The Secret Origins of The First World War” were co-conspirators with the Zionist Jews including Lord Rothschild and Paul Warburg. Their plan was to bring America back into the British Empire, destroy Germany and deliver Russia into the hands of the Jews along with the bridgehead of Palestine. Not content to instigate the first world war, Britain also instigated the second. They would have been far better off to have just traded with and maintained peace as The Germans desired. The Zionists will use every trick in the book to leverage their financial control into the total control of a new feudalism of global tyranny but Britain’s glory days are gone.

    Lets look at how Stalin “purged the Jews.” In 1935 at the height of Stalins power the Central Committee of the Communist Party, that is the main governing body consisted of 59 members. 56 of those members were Jews. Now it is known to be 57 because now we know that Stalin was a Jew. His real name meant “son of the Jew” and was from a Jewish region. He spoke Yiddish and was married to a Jewess. That only leaves two (Labov and Ossinsky) who were not Jews and both of them were also married to Jew bitches.

    [MORE]

    Note After the great purge ordered by Stalin at the end of 1936, the top ranked officials of the 40 Soviet Republics, that is the party secretaries who held the actual executive power, consisted of 4 Russians, 2 Armenians, 1 Georgian, 1 Buryat and 41 Jews. What a purge!

    I stated that the USSR was a wholly controlled Zionist enterprise. The great Russian writer Dostoievsky recognized what was coming as early as 1887 although the Jew controlled publishing houses have tried to keep this information hidden as they have with Solzhenitsyn’s “200 Years Among Us.” Dosoievsky wrote “Their Kingdom is coming. The unlimited despotism of their ideology is now only beginning. Under this tyranny human kindness and neighborliness as well as the longing for justice will fade away; all Christian and patriotic ideals will perish for ever!”

    The following big American bankers gave money for the Bolshevik Revolution : Jacob Schiff, Guggenheim, Max Breitung, and the Banking House of Kuhn, Loeb and Co. the directors of which were Jacob Schiff, Felix Warburg, Otto Kahn, Mortimer Schiff and S. H. Hanauer. All Jews. In Europe large amounts not money were contributed by The Westphalian-Rise Syndicate, Lazare Brothers of Paris, Gunsbourg of St. Petersburg, Speyer and Co. of London and the Nya Banken of Stockholm. All Jews. Do you think they did not control this Zionist facade from start to finish?

    International banker and 20 million dollar donor (in 1917 dollars) to the Bolshevik cause Jacob Schiff said” I don’t call it communism but rather Judaism. The Zionist Jews that instigated the world wars controlled the so called communists, insured that the reactionary Hitler came to power and also controlled the administration of the Zioinist puppet FDR.

    You are correct on Marx (Moses Mordecai Levy). His purpose was to destabilize the proletariat as well as their natural allies the bourgeoisie (middle class) for the benefit of the newly emplaced industrialists (monopoly capitalists) and also to attack the European Monarchies in. order to install the Jew run “democracies.” Marx uncle was Lyon Philips, founder of one of the first big industrial corp. Marx was funded by him all his life. Marx was from a well of family of Rabbis. His mother’s sister was married into the Rothschilds.

    The Kazar Jews officially determined to gain the bridgehead of Palestine at the first Zionist Convention in 1897. The Yinnon Plan for Greater Israel in place since the early 80’s is to break up or Balkanize all of the Arab countries that isn does not control already such as Egypt and Saudi Arabia. That is why their main satellite Jewmerica is working to overthrow Syria and Iran. Do not make too much of the Soviet activities in the Middle East. This was just part of the facade to pull the goyim in. To give the Soviets some much needed credibility as a viable enemy even though most of their equipment fell apart.

    You misunderstand completely the purpose of the USSR. Forget about Stalin. He changed nothing one way or another and was finally eliminated in the usual power struggle. Remember the Soviet Union was totally dependent on constant agricultural, industrial and financial aid from the U.S. from its inception till the very end. Hoover Institute researcher Anthony Sutton documents this in his books. The zionists must create an enemy. This accomplishes two things. First it allows them to change society, to get the goyim to accept more taxes, more government control more military spending too “defend against the powerful enemy.” The Zionists can accomplish more in one or two years of war than they can in 50 years of a peaceful society. When there is a war or the preparation for war this creates big profits for the Zionist Syndicate as an immediate benefit.

    The Jewish collective, allied with the other Zionists has not lost power. They have just moved on further down the socialist road of tyranny. It was incredibly expensive to keep the Soviet facade going, so they just stopped propping it up. Lenin had said that the USSR was just a transitional phase. Now we have the manufactured “War On Terror” for Greater Israel. This is much cheaper and more flexible. A lot of people were finally catching on to the Soviet “menace” anyway. Just as we built up the Soviet hoax in order to be used as the Hegelian Dialectic thesis-antithesis (one of the Zionists favorite tools) you can expect the same plan to be used with Russia and China in the not too distant future. Jewmerica has transferred lots of technology to both of them (we put the Chinese communists in power )and I expect that once they are more militarily capable they will join in a war against the U.S. This will set up a situation where the Zionists can impose martial law and instigate the long planned Agenda 2030-21.

    First, apparently you’re not only ignorant but a liar. Stalin was NOT a jew. You disagree? Prove it.

    Second, the jews’ loss of power in the USSR was a process which took place over 25 to 30 years or so, with the last straw being the creation of Israel. That the USSR supported the Arab governments in the Arab-Israeli conflict proves my point, which proves you wrong. Period. The end.

    Finally, since many of the publications that would support what I said are behind a pay wall, I’ll just quote some relevant paragraphs from a relevant Wikipedia article on the subject.

    [MORE]

    “The extent to which Joseph Stalin was antisemitic is widely discussed by historians. Although part of a movement that included Jews and rejected antisemitism, he privately displayed a contemptuous attitude toward Jews on various occasions that were witnessed by his contemporaries, and are documented by historical sources.[1] As the leader of the Soviet Union, he promoted repressive policies that conspicuously impacted Jews and, according to his successor Nikita Khrushchev and others, he fomented the doctors’ plot as a pretext for further anti-Jewish repressions.

    […]

    After the incapacitated Lenin’s death on 21 January 1924, the party officially maintained the principle of collective leadership, but Stalin soon outmaneuvered his rivals in the Central Committee’s Politburo. At first collaborating with Jewish and half-Jewish Politburo members Grigory Zinoviev and Lev Kamenev against Jewish arch-rival Leon Trotsky, Stalin succeeded in marginalizing Trotsky. By 1929, Stalin had also effectively marginalized Zinoviev and Kamenev as well, compelling both to submit to his authority. The intransigent Trotsky was forced into exile.

    […]

    During his meeting with Nazi Germany’s foreign minister Joachim von Ribbentrop, Stalin promised him to get rid of the “Jewish domination”, especially among the intelligentsia.[16] After dismissing Maxim Litvinov as Foreign Minister in 1939,[17] Stalin immediately directed incoming Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Molotov to “purge the ministry of Jews”, to appease Hitler and to signal Nazi Germany that the USSR was ready for non-aggression talks.[17][18][19][20]

    According to some historians,[who?] antisemitic trends in the Kremlin’s policies were fueled by the struggle against Leon Trotsky.[21][22]

    In the late 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s far fewer Jews were appointed to positions of power in the state apparatus than previously, with a sharp drop in Jewish representation in senior positions evident from around the time of the beginning of the late 1930s rapprochement with Nazi Germany. The percentage of Jews in positions of power dropped to 6% in 1938, and to 5% in 1940.[18]

    […]

    Despite Stalin’s willingness to support Israel early on, various historians suppose that antisemitism in the late 1940s and early 1950s was motivated by Stalin’s possible perception of Jews as a potential “fifth column” in light of a pro-Western Israel in the Middle East. Orlando Figes suggests that:

    ‘After the foundation of Israel in May 1948, and its alignment with the USA in the Cold War, the 2 million Soviet Jews, who had always remained loyal to the Soviet system, were portrayed by the Stalinist regime as a potential fifth column. Despite his personal dislike of Jews, Stalin had been an early supporter of a Jewish state in Palestine, which he had hoped to turn into a Soviet satellite in the Middle East. But as the leadership of the emerging state proved hostile to approaches from the Soviet Union, Stalin became increasingly afraid of pro-Israeli feeling among Soviet Jews. His fears intensified as a result of Golda Meir’s arrival in Moscow in the autumn of 1948 as the first Israeli ambassador to the USSR. On her visit to a Moscow synagogue on Yom Kippur (13 October), thousands of people lined the streets, many of them shouting Am Yisroel Chai! (The People of Israel Live!)—a traditional affirmation of national renewal to Jews throughout the world but to Stalin a dangerous sign of ‘bourgeois Jewish nationalism’ that subverted the authority of the Soviet state.[32]’

    […]

    In November 1948, Soviet authorities launched a campaign to liquidate what was left of Jewish culture. The leading members of the Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee were arrested. They were charged with treason, bourgeois nationalism and planning to set up a Jewish republic in Crimea to serve American interests. The Museum of Environmental Knowledge of the Jewish Autonomous Oblast (established in November 1944) and The Jewish Museum in Vilnius (established at the end of the war) were closed down in 1948.[35] The Historical-Ethnographic Museum of Georgian Jewry, established in 1933, was shut down at the end of 1951.[35]

    In Birobidzhan, the various Jewish cultural institutions that had been established under Stalin’s earlier policy of support for “proletarian Jewish culture” in the 1930s were closed down between late 1948 and early 1949. These included the Kaganovich Yiddish Theater, the Yiddish publishing house, the Yiddish newspaper Birobidzhan, the library of Yiddish and Hebrew books, and the local Jewish schools.[36] The same happened to Yiddish theaters all over the Soviet Union, beginning with the Odessa Yiddish Theater and including the Moscow State Jewish Theater.

    […]

    During the night of 12–13 August 1952, remembered as the “Night of the Murdered Poets” (Ночь казнённых поэтов), thirteen of the most prominent Yiddish writers of the Soviet Union were executed on the orders of Stalin. Among the victims were Peretz Markish, David Bergelson and Itzik Fefer.

    In a 1 December 1952 Politburo session, Stalin announced: ‘Every Jewish nationalist is the agent of the American intelligence service. Jewish nationalists think that their nation was saved by the USA. . . They think they are indebted to the Americans. Among doctors, there are many Jewish nationalists.’ [39] He also notably quoted Jean-Jacques Rosseau’s “eat the rich” in this speech.

    A notable campaign to quietly remove Jews from positions of authority within the state security services was carried out in 1952–1953. The Russian historians Zhores and Roy Medvedev wrote that according to MVD General Sudoplatov, “simultaneously all Jews were removed from the leadership of the security services, even those in very senior positions. In February the anti-Jewish expulsions were extended to regional branches of the MGB. A secret directive was distributed to all regional directorates of the MGB on 22 February, ordering that all Jewish employees of the MGB be dismissed immediately, regardless of rank, age or service record. . . .[40]”.

    Your “disgust” is hilarious. Saker has proven one thing over time, that he is not merely uninformed, but misinformed. Most of what Putin does with the military is done in fear for his regime, and is designed to, hopefully, put fear into his neighbors. Russia is declining demographically and economically. All Putin has to Russia is drag her down the road to perdition. Putin has his aspirations to revivify the Soviet Empire with himself as the new Tsar. All Putin has established is another kleptocracy with himself as one of the major beneficiaries.

    It’s sad that you don’t have sufficient knowledge to realize what is actually happening. Russia’s steady decline will land her in deeper water and result in her destruction. The appointment for Russia’s destruction may be read about in Ezekial chapters 38 and 39.

  148. Your quoting Wikipedia and the other Zionist controlled court historians. Naturally they want to cover the Jews tracks just as the MSM does in everything else the Zionist Jews are involved in. The entire Bolshevik enterprise was managed by the Zionist Jews with help from Wall St. Of the original 486 members of the first Soviet governing body only 16 were not Jews. I have already covered the almost total control by the Jews in Stalins governing bodies. The Jew Bankers provided the financing to get the Bolsheviks started. Since there was a preponderance of Jews in practically all the higher positions after they had plundered everything of value, they fell upon each other. A good example of this is Genrikh Yagoda the Jew head of the S0viet NKVD and responsible for millions of deaths. Jews also ran 10 out of 11 of the Gulag systems. Since they held the power through out the whole propped up facade erected by them to begin with, who would have gotten rid of them. I got Lenin and Stalin mixed up as far as name derivation. An easy mistake. However since we know that privately among his friends (almost all Jews as was his wife) Stalin spoke Yiddish, that almost certainly indicates Jewish heritage.

    Solzhenitsyn confirms who was running things in Russia. Read his book “200 Years Among Us. I think he would be a reliable authority. I believe the Reporter from The London times, Robert Wilton who was in St. Petersburg during the Jew takeover sums things up pretty well: The whole record of the bolshevism is indelibly impressed with the stamp of alien invasion. The murder of the Tzar, deliberately planned by the Jew Sverdlov and carried out by the Jews Goloshekin, Safarov, Voikov, and Yurovsky, is the act not of the Russian people, but of this hostile invader.

    You need to tone down your acerbic attacks and calling me a lier. I have noticed you use this vindictive style on others that don’t share your views. We may have disagreements but this does not not call for that kind of adolescent behavior.

    Putin does not want to solve the problem because he and his oligarch friends are the main beneficiaries of the “piritization” of Russia. After being plundered by the Jews under the mantra of communism for 70 years they now have a new Kleptocracy in control.

    Russia never had the opportunities of a limited government and free enterprise as the U.S. used to have. The Russian people have always suffered under an autocratic regime. Things were improving quite a bit under Nicholas II, and things looked very favorable. That is why the Bolsheviks (Jews) with massive aid from the Jew bankers and Wall St. had to move on the situation when they did.

    This plundering by the elite is what is happening here. The banking cartel begun in 1913 has supercharged big gov and spending for the Zionist wars by utilizing the fiat credit system that could not be done with borrowing or direct taxation. At an average rate of 50% every 17 years, this has had a devastating impact on the middle class.

    Now they really have Sovereign immunity as shown in the 08-09 bailout for billionaires and now another theft of trillions more under the cover of the fake virus.

    # 154 is reply to Herald Smith- guess I failed to note that.

    “Your quoting Wikipedia and the other Zionist controlled court historians.”

    First, that would be “you’re” not “your.” (Maybe you can find a helpful third grade student in your neighborhood who can explain it to you).

    Second, this is exactly the kind of dismissive rhetoric that I would expect from a shameless bullshit artist like you, goofball.

    The Wikipedia article has references that you can look up. You can also use google to look things up, e.g. “the night of the murdered poets”; or are you, as I suspect, too stupid, lazy and/or dishonest to do that?

    “Naturally they want to cover the Jews tracks just as the MSM does in everything else the Zionist Jews are involved in.”

    So you’re the only one in the universe who somehow knows what really happened in the USSR and why (and everywhere else in the world for that matter)?

    “The entire Bolshevik enterprise was managed by the Zionist Jews with help from Wall St.”

    Why can’t you get it through your thick skull that Stalin turned the tables on the jews in the USSR? After Lenin’s death, Stalin rose to the top and incrementally purged jews from power. This is a generally accepted historical fact not open to debate.

    “You need to tone down your acerbic attacks and calling me a lier.”

    First, that would be “liar” not “lier.”

    Second, if you would stop being dishonest I wouldn’t call you a liar.

    “I have noticed you use this vindictive style on others that don’t share your views. We may have disagreements but this does not not call for that kind of adolescent behavior.”

    And I have noticed that you’re a shameless bullshit artist, spewing an endless stream of ahistorical bullshit here while studiously ignoring and/or disparaging anything that doesn’t fit your simple-minded view of the world. Therefore, you shouldn’t expect to be taken seriously, right?

    The Putin fan club don’t do honest debate or analysis

    Instead they maintain this mythological belief system of Russia,its so called unique civilisation and the godhead of Putin

    There’s little point in trying to reason with them !
