It sure looks like Biden will take over the White House one way or another, and while Trump and his supporters might still try a few things, the political correlation of forces inside the US ruling classes is clearly against Trump. As for the “deplorables” – they have been neutralized by stealing the election. Which means that Russia will soon face the most rabidly russophobic gang of messianic Neocons in history. So what can the world expect next?

The Dems are not meaningfully different from the Republicans. True, the Dems blame Russia for everything, while the Republicans blame China. Not much of a difference here: it is all about hate and scapegoating. And both of these factions of the oligarchic Uniparty like to blame Iran for, well, being located in the “wrong” part of the world, the Middle-East, which all US politicians (and not to mention their Israeli masters) want to control. As for the Israel Lobby, it has been trying to trigger a US attack on Iran for many decades. Recent US moves of key personnel and bombers might indicate that discussions of an attack on Iran are still very much taking place.

I don’t believe that these fundamental directions in US foreign policy will change much.

Why?

Primarily because the AngloZionist Empire and even the US as we knew them are basically dead, which means that irrespective of who is in control of the US, the objective means/capabilities of the Empire and the US will remain the same. In other words, when Biden promises to show Russia how tough and mighty he will be, he will not have any more capabilities to threaten Russia with than Trump had.

So the first thing we can expect is simply “more of the same”.

Now, in the Empire of Illusions which the United States has become, appearances matter much more than facts. US politicians have two quasi-reflexive reactions to any problem: use violence or throw money at it. Of course, using violence against Russia (or China and Iran) would be extremely dangerous. So throwing money at a problem is the way chosen by the US political elites (see here for the, rather boring, details).

A lot of that money will also be spent on ideological nonsense like supporting trans-gender rights in Africa, woke-awareness in the Baltic, “critical race theory” in Japan (good luck with that!), “Holocaust studies” in Poland and the like.

What will happen next is that this money will be spread amongst a pretty large US and EU bureaucracy (and its subcontractors) to all sorts of political PR actions aimed at presenting modern Russia as “Putin’s Mordor” whose “Nazguls” (scary GRU and/or SVR and/or FSB agents) run around the planet looking for more targets to infect with the totally ineffective, but still scary, “Novichok”. In the past, much of that money was spent inside Russia by all sorts of CIA-run NGOs and much of it was also spent on various propaganda efforts outside Russia. Again, this will not change, if anything, expect even more money poured into what are in reality strategic PSYOP operations.

The sad truth is that US politicians know very little about Russia, a country which they hate and fear, but not a country they even begin to understand. In this case, what US politicians will not realize is that Russia herself has changed a great deal in the past years: many new laws and regulation (see machine translated example here) were adopted which, in essence, “plugged” many political “holes” in the Russian legislation which allowed AngloZionist organizations to have a great deal of influence in Russia. As a result of these reforms, it has become far more difficult for western run NGOs to influence the Russian political scene.

As a direct result of these new rules, I expect that a higher ratio of money will stay allocated to activities situated in the West and less for Russian-based activities. In plain English, this means that more US printed money will be spent on completely useless activities. The only people benefitting from this will be the entire class of pseudo “Russia experts” whose only true expertise is on how to secure grant money. They will produce even more conferences and papers which nobody will care about, but which will allow the US Neocons and their deep state to show how “Biden is firm with Russia”. The typical US cocktail of waste, mismanagement and fraud (and let’s not forget good old corruption!).

Russia’s response to that will also be “more of the same”: Russian politicians will continue to express their disgust with their western “partners” (FYI – when Russians speak of “partners” it is understood by all that they mean this only sarcastically). Foreign Minister Lavrov and one of his deputies have recently made statements basically indicating that Russia will not seek any (!) form of dialog with the West, because, frankly, it is pretty clear to them that this is a total waste of time: Russia has nobody in the West to speak to: the only country with real agency (albeit severely limited by its subordination to Israel) would be the US, all the other countries of the West are really colonies and/or protectorates with no sovereignty at all.

What about all the many military provocations the Empire is organizing all around Russia? Do they concern Russia leaders or not?

Well, no and yes.

In purely military terms, US/NATO military capabilities are no real threat to Russia whose military is much smaller, but also much more capable than the western ones. Why? Simply because building a truly powerful military has been a core strategic priority for the Kremlin who needed a military actually capable of a) deterring the West from attacking Russia and b) defeating the West should deterrence fail. In sharp contrast, western militaries have not been training for real wars for decades already: most of what the US/NATO do is using western militaries for all sorts of propaganda purposes (like “sending messages” or “showing determination” etc.) and for counter-insurgency operations, not for fighting a real, major, wars.

Right now the Russian military is much more modern (about 80% of new gear on average across all military branches and services!) and much better trained for real combat operations. In sharp contrast, the US MIC is heavy on hot air (Space Force! Hypersonic missiles! Artificial Intelligence!) and short on any actually deployed and engageable weapon systems. Away from the propaganda machine (aka “corporate legacy ziomedia”), the reality is that the West is about 1.5-2 decades behind Russia in most critical military technologies.

Last, but not least, wars are not won by machines, computers or fancy engineering: they are won by soldiers, real men, who know what they are defending and why. The contrast between the typical Russian soldier (in any service or branch of the military) and his western counterpart could not be greater than it is today. Simply put: no western country can boast that it has soldiers like Russia has and, again, I don’t mean the “super dooper” elite Spetsnaz operators, I am talking about your very average, garden variety, infantry soldier, like the ones who saved Russia in the Chechen conflict in spite of operating in truly horrible and totally chaotic circumstances. These guys might not look like much, but as soldiers they are the kind every commander dreams about.

All this is to say that Russians have nothing to fear from all the western sabre-rattling, except maybe one thing: the rogue officer, on either side, who would suddenly decide to open fire (for whatever reason) thereby creating a situation which could escalate into a full-scale war very rapidly.

The other thing which is objectively bad for Russia is the number of key treaties the US has now withdrawn from: these treaties are most needed, especially as confidence building measures. Right now there are very few treaties left and that means that the US is desperate to try to suck Russia into an arms race.

This won’t work.

Why?

Putin himself explained it very well when he recently said that while the West throws huge sums of money at any problem, Russia allocates brains, not money. According to Putin, it is the use of brains, rather than wasting money, which allowed Russia to develop all the weapon systems mentioned by Putin for the first time in 2018. This made it possible for Russia to get ahead by a decade or more, while using only a small fraction of the kind of money the US, and other western countries, are allocating on “defense” (while not being threatened by anybody!). In the competition between the US money printing press and the Russian brains, you can be sure that the latter one will always prevail.

The bottom line is this: the US can spend many hundred billion dollars on “countering Russian (or Chinese) influence”, but this will do absolutely nothing to help the objective circumstances and capabilities of the Empire or the US.

So the real question is what will change on the level below direct military confrontation.

In a recent press conference, Putin mentioned something very interesting about the outgoing Trump administration. He said:

“The current administration introduced new sanctions against Russia 46 times – against our legal entities and economic operators. Forty-six times – this has never ever happened before. But at the same time, bilateral trade grew by 30 percent over the previous year, oddly enough, even despite those restrictions.”

So if the putatively pro-Russian Trump Administration sanctioned Russia 46 times, it is normal for the Russians to look at Biden with equanimity or even a resigned fatalism: “the West has always hated us, the West still hates us and the West will always hate us” – this truism is all but unanimously accepted amongst Russian politicians.

Still, we can count on Biden and Harris to try to show how “tough” they are on Russia and Putin: they will show their prowess mostly by demanding that their NATO/EU colonies and protectorates continue “send messages” to Russia and show their “unity” and “solidarity” with each other, mostly by parroting self-evidently nonsensical Anglo and German propaganda. Will the bilateral trade between Russia and the US continue to grow? Probably not as the list of corporations and agencies the US declares to be under sanctions will only grow further. But never say never, especially with the comprehensively hypocritical Dems…

How about the kind of self-evidently ridiculous stories about Russians using (a clearly ineffective) combat biological agent like the so-called “Novichok”, trying to kill irrelevant bloggers and failing to do so, or some variation on “animal Assad” “poisoning his own people”? Will that nonsense also continue? Probably, mainly simply because this is something which the Empire has demonstratively proved that it has the ability to do. So why not continue, especially with a press corps willing to parrot even the most ridiculous nonsense.

The bottom line is this: to get a sense of what any actor could do next, one always has to multiply intentions by capabilities. If there is one thing which the outgoing Maga Administration has shown, is that its declared intentions and actual capabilities are not at all commensurate: hence the long list of countries Trump threatened, but never meaningfully attacked. “Biden” (and I use this term very loosely, meaning “Biden and his real handlers”) will inherit the very same geostrategic toolkit Trump had at his disposal for four years and which did not make it possible for him to effectively flex muscles, not even against weak and nearby Venezuela! We can be pretty sure that the rhetoric about Russia will get even more hate-filled and paranoid. Petty harassment (such as arrest of nationals, closures of offices, expulsion from various international events, etc.) will also continue, not so much because they work, but because a lot of people depend on these for their salary.

How likely is a shooting war? In my personal opinion, not very likely at all. I think that the folks at the Pentagon are mostly aware of the real world out there, and they probably recognize that the US armed forces are in no condition to fight any halfway capable opponent.

How likely is it that the US will use a protectorate like the Ukraine or Georgia to reignite another local war? It is not impossible, especially since the US did support SBU infiltration of terrorists into Russia. Keep in mind that the sole goal of such (a, frankly, suicidal) attack would be to provoke Russia into a military response, not to actually achieve anything else. The main problem here is that the regular armed forces of the Ukraine and Georgia are in no condition to fight, and that the (US letter soup controlled) Ukrainian and Georgian special services have already tried this many times, and so far without success, mainly because, unlike all the western countries, Russia has the actual means to lock her borders when needed.

What about the reported plan to destabilize Russia by creating conflicts all along her periphery?

It would take way too long for me here to describe what is taking place in each of these countries right now, but I will offer just the following bullet points:

  • Russia has officially declared that she will never allow Belarus to be conquered by the West (irrespective of the means used). That ship has sailed.
  • Russia is slowly, but surely and very successfully “choking” the economies of the three Baltic statelets, mostly by denying them transit of Russian cargo and by letting them cut themselves off (yes, they did that to themselves!) from the Russian-Belarusian energy network.
  • Poland is, as always, very loud, and, also as always, highly irrelevant. Poles are only potentially dangerous to a very weak, divided country, or when backed by powerful patrons. Neither is true nowadays.
  • The Ukraine poses no threat to Russia, it is way too weak, too corrupt, too mismanaged and too poor to represent a threat to Russia. The Minsk Agreements have been de-facto rejected by the entire Ukronazi political class and the Donbass is now gone forever.
  • The Caucasus is now firmly in Russian hands (there is no force capable of challenging the Southern Military District or the 58th Combined Arms Army in the region). Those who believe that Turkey strengthened its position in the region simply do not understand the outcome of the recent war (especially the very interesting drone war which showed that while Armenia could not deal with them, Russian EW literally destroyed Turkish drones in mid-air (this also happened in Syria, by the way).
  • Central Asia is an inherently unstable region, mainly because these countries never succeeded in effectively transitioning from the Soviet period to full independence. And yes, the US has a great deal of influence in this region. But only Russia can provide effective security guarantees to the leaders of Central Asia, they all know that. Finally, Kazakhstan plays an important “buffer” role for Russia, putting distance between her and her chronically unstable southern neighbors.
  • In the Far East, Russia and China are enjoying a long honeymoon in which their already very deep relationship only gets deeper and their collaboration stronger (in spite of western PSYOPs trying to scare Russians about how China wants to take Siberia, and other silly fairy tales). Russia is now even supplying key strategic defense technologies to China.
  • Last, but most certainly not least, Russia has total superiority in the Arctic, where the West is many decades behind Russia. In fact, Russia is massively expanding her capabilities (civilian and military) in the Russian north, which will give her even more weight on our planet’s very rich north.

Now ask yourself: do you see any of that changing in the next 4 years, even assuming a rabidly hostile Biden Administration? I sure don’t.

Conclusion:

Yes, the political atmosphere between Russia and the Empire will get worse. Most of the “action” will take place in the public media space. The quasi simultaneous collapse of the Anglo-Zionist Empire and the United States (at least as we knew them before the election steal) will not give much time or energy to western leaders to pursue policies which have already failed in the past and for which they simply do not have the means.

Trump or Biden was never a meaningful choice for Russia (only the Russian court jester Zhirinovskii thought otherwise). It’s not much of a choice today either. The most likely consequence of these collapses will be that the world will split in roughly two sections: “Section A” which will include all the countries of the “collective West” and which will be busy trying to survive a crisis which has only begun and “Section B”: the rest of the world, which will try hard to decouple itself from the sinking West and try to develop itself in this rather unstable environment.

Also, many Russians remember the gerontocracy which ruled in the last years of the USSR and they know how such gerontocracies act (make no difference if the country is ruled by a Chernenko or a Biden – such rulers are always weak and clueless).

Biden or Trump – no real difference for Russia.

This is why most Russians don’t care either way.

    i remember the late 80’s when ronald reagan was declared a genius for single handedly spending the ussr into oblivion. when the reagan administration took over (with a little help from daddy bush working a deal with the iranians to hold on to the hostages until after the election) the national debt was $900,000,000,000. when he left office he had tripled that, a small price to pay for taking down the evil empire, they told me. in the 90’s clinton and his best friend newt gingrich magically balanced the budget (by raiding the social security trust fund and leaving a rubber iou behind). when the skull and bones division of the neocons seized power the debt was $6,000,000,000,000. twenty years and several wars later we were at $23,000,000,000,000. we are about to reach $30,000,000,000,000 after a bad flu season this year. our military is exhausted, our equipment is so out dated and worn it isn’t worth bringing back, (if we ever leave the middle east), the russians and chinese are decades ahead in technological terms. now tell me, who spent who into oblivion?

  2. Russia remains vulnerable to Western efforts at political subversion. And Democrats excel at this. Remember, it was during the presidency of Barack Obama when Putin faced toughest challenge to his rule. I’m talking, of course, about Bolotnaya protests.

    These days millions of Russian kids watch political videos, promoted by Youtube, where they are being taught, that their country sucks and there is no hope for their lives whatsoever unless they overthrow Putin. Russian politicians do not use the internet and appear completely oblivious to this danger. They’re a bit like Saker to be honest: obsessed with their tank divisions and rockets, dinosaurs preparing for yesterday’s war. They risk finding themselves in Lukashenka’s position.

    It’s improbable that there would be any direct military clash somewhere even though there’s always the possibility of a mistake leading to a crisis. The US uses color revolutions, proxy wars, subversion, bribery, economic warfare, sanctions and varying forms of sabotage. It’s been pretty successful so far with this all over the world but Russia is too big and self-sufficient to be forced to capitulate.

    rhetoric about Russia will get even more hate-filled and paranoid

    The US propaganda system always needs a boogeyman to scare the public with. Promotion of fear is an inherent part of the American system of engineering consent.

    far more difficult for western run NGOs to influence the Russian political scene.

    Big tech collusion in enforcing censorship here in the US has become heavy-handed and omnipresent. But one supposes there’ll be complaints about lack of free speech in Russia.
    Trump was verbally belligerent but stopped short of starting any new wars, placating the establishment with imposing sanctions, assassinating Soleimani, etc. Biden is a stupid, reckless incompetent who could easily stumble us into conflicts we can’t handle. But then, it would be his handlers who actually pull the strings and they seem to be as cretinous as him.

  12. Biden has a lot of compromat and Harris is basically akin to a wigger in a black gang, who will need to prove her devotion when she takes the reigns after Biden.

    Both will be like putty in their handler’s hands.

    Politicians start wars to make the public look away from domestic or personal crises. Biden already has his corruption probe, and whilst Trump made many errors, he did not fall for the trap of starting a major foreign policy disaster for personal political gain.

    Both Biden and Harris would do that in a heartbeat. So whether that would be Iran or Ukraine, or pushing Taiwan too far, I’m pretty confident a war will start.

    I always said with Trump the odd’s are 80% civil war, 10% world war, 10% peace, whilst Biden is around 50% civil war, 45% world war, 5% peace.

    Except that never happened.

    What happened was the catastrophe of “The Soviet Union’s Vietnam” and the subsequent loss of confidence in any leadership whatsoever after Chernobyl.

    Once people notice they are managed by clowns, things tend to change. Which is at it should be. There is probably a book somewhere about how organizations of any kind and character silt up until they crash suddenly. This seems to be the general way of the universe.

    Indeed, a significant psyop risk. There was a documentary way back whenever (too far to remember) about the reasons for the fall of the USSR etc. One given was a major attack by way of western music (Beatles, Stones etc) that undermined the confidence and commitment of the Russian/Soviet youth of the day and turned things towards a western aligned direction. This comment came from a Russian remembering back to the events of his youth and the Black market trade in western music albums etc: “The rise and fall of images of the future precedes or accompanies the rise and fall of cultures” (Fred Polak 1973).

    There is probably less risk of this in the current cycle as any Russian youth inclined to follow western themes/trends will quickly realize the gig is largely up and the parasites will be moving on and seeking a new host to bleed dry. This is their more significant longer term risk. But then again, Russians are not strangers to these pernicious types and may have developed stronger social antibody/virus vaccines than their American ‘partners’. The neuro-parasitogy relationships between the jewel wasp and its zombie cockroach host are worth considering by way of cautionary metaphor. (A good 6min overview using ‘American cockroaches’ [1:06] can be seen here: https://youtu.be/qN2XMyxAs5o )

    On this point latter risk point, I followed up a few references and thematic links associated with Laurent Guyénot’s recent interesting Xmas special posted here at UNZ (“How Yahweh Conquered Rome”) and came to some historic findings related to the Habiru (“sometimes written as Hapiru, and more accurately as ʿApiru, meaning “dusty, dirty” — a term used in 2nd-millennium BCE texts throughout the Fertile Crescent for people variously described as rebels, outlaws, raiders, mercenaries, bowmen, servants, slaves, and laborers”(Wikipedia).

    The 2001 paper “Who are the Hîabiru of the Amarna Letters?” by retired professor (Andrews University) S. Douglas Waterhouse (2001) joined a lot of dots for me. A good stumble on, … thanks, Guyénot and others who posted relevant comments etc. (A copy can be found here: https://digitalcommons.andrews.edu/jats/vol12/iss1/3/ )

    “Last, but not least, wars are not won by machines, computers or fancy engineering: they are won by soldiers, real men, who know what they are defending and why.”

    Azerbaijan just ate Putin’s lunch by crushing Armenia’s entire AA systems and their piece by piece destruction of hundreds of T90’s and all the Armenian artillery. Azerbaijan accomplished this through Israeli military technology, likely including remote drone piloting services.

    Saker wants to pretend that it is the US that has Israel on a leash, but it is clearly the other way around. Israel has already hoovered up all of the US electronics and military patents and clearly any other patents that would be useful in a war, especially a war for Eretz Israel.

    Azerbaijan took out all the Armenian armor and air defenses with Israeli drones like the Hovering Artillery Drones and Suicide drones. The amount of live film is staggering, and the T90’s were picked off like sparrows sitting on an electric wire. Some of the drones Azerbaijan used were Turkish, but we can be certain that the technology is either licensed from Israel or Israel’s gollum the JEWSA.

    Added to this complete mastery of the traditional battlespace is the complete Heeb control over the bio-warfare space. Whether Putin allowed Russia to be circumcised while he played along to the Rabbi’s Covid rituals, or whether Putin is playing it safe and vaccinating and closing its borders pre-emtively is irrellevant. Russia is being bullied like a lone teenage Swedish boy at muslim majority high school in Malmo.

    And of course, Russia still has a Rothschild controlled Central Bank too.

    So Putin, just like Biden, is going to do exactly what his Chabad Lubbovitz Rabbi’s tell him he has to do. Both are Israel’s Shabbez Bitches.

    Do you get out much?! This is laughable.

    Writing from Greece, I can assure you that the children and adults of countries in continental Europe (this includes Russia FYI) first of all watch videos in their own languages….this is NOT english, by the way. Our own videos, films, news and discussion shows are actually of a much higher standard than US fare…..which is apparently aimed at 9 year olds.

    Second, everyone knows that the US and England hate Russia and Putin, thus whatever these 2 countries claim about either is dismissed with a laugh. As for Skripal (where are they now? dead?), Navalny, novichok, Assad gassing his own people…..a child can see through this stuff. Sorry!

    Young people in Russia watching US propaganda against their country… you honestly think they are going to agree with the country (USA) that has targeted them with missiles and nuclear bombs for 70 years? Do you think we can’t see the corruption and stupidity?

    My favorite quote of Karl Rove:

    “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”

    And, my paraphrase of the above quote:

    “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own drama. And while you’re studying that drama — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new dramas, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re drama’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”

    Few people care to deal with such numbers, and so they waddle along into destroying the future of their grandchildren because they follow America’s leadership class.

    It is all 1984: The Anglo-Zionist Empire is Oceania; Russia is Eurasia; China is Eastasia.

    Our leaders, Bush type pure Yank WASP as well as Jewish Neocon with Trotskyist family background, intend to wage permanent war in the name of permanent peace against permanent aggressors and war-lovers.

    Azerbaijan just ate Putin’s lunch by crushing Armenia’s entire AA systems and their piece by piece destruction of hundreds of T90’s and all the Armenian artillery.

    Those who believe that Turkey strengthened its position in the region simply do not understand the outcome of the recent war (especially the very interesting drone war which showed that while Armenia could not deal with them, Russian EW literally destroyed Turkish drones in mid-air (this also happened in Syria, by the way).

    It is a pity you did not read the article. 🙁

    The president of Azerbaijan and him apparently get on quite well as for the Armenian president, he’s well known as being anti Russian soros cloan who’s now hated and blamed for the fuck up and will probably be overthrown soon.

    Russia probably gained a lot of military intelligence regarding those drones that hit Armenian tanks not Russian, that will no doubt be useful in Syria.

    The conflict is now largely frozen with Russian peacekeepers in the middle holding the peace and an essential presence in the area.

    Russia’s presence in mainland Armenia was never really used in the conflict, is unchanged and will probably be more essential than ever to the survival of the country from the Armenian public perspective.

    So looks like a Russian win win from a geo political standpoint.

    China won the post-Cold War quarter-century, hands down. So much for our Unipolar Moment!

    Russia/Putin gets an honorable mention for the best relative performance.

    The place to begin an analysis today is by recognizing the treason that is driving Russia into a Strategic Alliance with China. If you cannot recognize that as a glaringly obvious tell of compromise or worse then you should spend your time noodling other subjects.

    Consider the US strengths in The Cold War. Everything else aside, its greatest was that it was internally consolidated under a consensual government and protected liberties admired the world over.

    Yet and still, it’s worth remembering that powerful elements within the US considered this not a feature but a bug of our system. This was reflected in popular culture, with us always within an inch of losing everything because of Soviet superiority in the spy wars. Understand that the real appeal for elite and governing classes in the West has always been Leninism but Soviet model made selling it a bridge too far.

    Conversely, China’s rise has made it a dream come true for these elements in the West. Improved standards of living — real in China, a cruel lie in the West — in return for obedience to one-party diktat. At least until the full surveillance apparatus is in place ensuring their power one way or another.

    Biden would be the American version of Yeltsin upon “reelection” in 1996. In which case your analysis should take the form of how much damage to US geopolitical interests and the American people does China, Russia, Iran, and every other power worth mentioning think they can get away with.

  36. The Saker has far too much faith in Russia. Russia is 100% co-opted by zionist interests, as Andy Korybko makes clear in his recent article on Russia/Iran/Syria’s ‘differences’ finally being aired publicly. And what is glaringly obvious from the article is that Russia is absolutely hamstrung by Israeli and zionist influence. Here’s the link to the article: https://oneworld.press/?module=articles&action=view&id=1844

    My view is that China and Iran are the only nations that have the political balls to directly say, “NO!” to Israeli/zionist influence, and therefore they have the highest likelihood of being attacked if economic measures don’t bring them to heel soon.

    Iran needs no discussion, as we all know the circumstances and the machinations the zionist elites have been implementing for decades to get the USA to make war on Iran. I strongly suspect that the heads of the US military are still, to some extent, like Admiral William Fallon who, in 2007, when asked about an attack on Iran famously replied: “That will not happen on my watch.” But sane voices like these will inevitably be replaced by more willing golems and I fear eventually, the military in the US will give in to the pressure and an attack will happen, most likely if Biden/Harris get into power. I hope not, but only time will tell.

    China is particularly troublesome to jewish supremacist interests, as the Chinese will soon eclipse the USA economically, and are not (yet) infested with jewish-controlled media, finance and banking, and very critically, do not have the Abrahamic religious traditions making their peoples peculiarly susceptible to the religious brainwashing that one must kiss jewish hindquarters to please Yahweh and get into jewish ‘heaven’. America is plagued by such, and it really helps maintain jewish supremacist power and control over many, if not most aspects of American life. China has no such nonsense, and intends via strict media controls to keep it that way, a mortal sin in the eyes of jewish supremacists everywhere.

    Thus, I believe (unlike Saker and others) that the blood-thirsty zionists and jewish supremacists will not hesitate to launch an attack on China if they believe that they will ultimately be outplayed and lose world dominance they enjoy presently through their pawns in the West. The Samson Option is very real, and anyone who doubts their evil need only look at the millions slaughtered in two world wars in the 20th century, and now their wholly-owned war on Islam that they have inflicted on the world via their willing and well-rewarded goyim minions in the 21st. The more lives they destroy, the more people slaughtered, the more countries devastated, the more thoroughly they enjoy their unrivaled power and the unending orgy of blood they openly revel in.

    Saker and the Soviet Boomers in charge of Russia are a bunch of dinosaurs, that much is true. You raise an excellent point about how woefully unequipped Russian society is to deal with internal ideological subversion.

    Consider: the USSR had an incredible army and navy and just about every technological do-hickey and toy that the West did and in far greater quantity and quality.

    And yet, they never used any of them and instead detonated the country from within in exchange for credit cards and blue jeans and U2 cds. Please remember: these are pretty much the same people who Saker and his generational cohort belong to, so keep that in mind when you read his chest-pumping ra-ra-ra-rassia posts. Methinks the soviet boomer doth overcompensate.

    To a man, his generation are all weak, noodle-armed windbags that believe in a puree of hippy garbage, even though they think they are tough and patriotic and personally beat the Nazis (their parents or grandparents did, not them) with their own two kulaks (lol).

    Their heads are full of ideological mush that prevents coherent understanding of the situation in the country, or the outside world. They mix and match facts and history to suit their tastes. Example: Stalin is an Orthodox Tsar who defeated the Anglo-Jew puppet Hitler, but wanting Russia to remain majority Russian is !!!Fascism!!!!, Jews run the world, but Mr. Shapiro on Вечер on Channel 1 is a trustworthy source of information, and Armenia is our friend, no wait, they’re ungrateful, no wait, they’re our friends and we need to save them, and what’s this, they still hate us, well, that’s what friends are for I guess…

    But wait there’s more!

    Examples: never say a word about their precious nappy-headed “негры” who are suffering in America from ebil fascist YT, never critique their undying love for mass migration of Muhammedoids from south of the border (дружба народов). Never point out that they raised a generation of degenerates, druggies and whores (Russian Gen X and Millennials) who hate them and Russia (how did that little slip-up occur, hmmmm????) Ah yes, and what is not to love about their reflexive knee-jerk hatred of any source of information that isn’t spoonfed to them by the TV.

    And on and on it goes… Oh by the way, “GIBS ME MORE PENSIONS, GUBMINT!!!”

    What matters most is a coherent national vision and the WILL to act to realize it. I see this quality in President Putin on his good days, but I do not see it in big city libtard society, the lib-sovok bugman bureaucrats in the government, the Armenian/Jew controlled libtard media or any other institution other than the Orthodox Church and the military.

    As for the Russian youth, the Millennials and Gen X equivalents are all raging shitlibs, foaming at the mouth to topple Putin and spread sodomy into the hinterlands.

    The Zoomers still have a chance. We can see that a new, nationalistic and patriotic internet culture is just now being born. We can only hope it is not strangled in its nascency by eager Soviet Boomers or Jew Trotskyites or Libshit tech-savvy censors.

    But there is literally nothing being done on the government level about the destructive trends within Russian society, unfortunately. This is mostly because Saker’s generational cohort is too myopic and self-centered and stupid to give a damn. They’re also cowards.

    Press the big red button, I say. I’m not afraid of going to Heaven and I relish the opportunity to send the enemies of our people to Hell.

    But you’ll have to wait another 50 years before people with my views get anywhere close to power as the dinosaurs slowly die off.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sino-Soviet_conflict_(1929)
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sino-Soviet_border_conflict (1969)

    From the article on the 1969 conflict:

    Amid heightening tensions, the Soviet Union and China began border talks. Despite the Soviet Union having granted all of the territory of the Japanese puppet state of Manchukuo to Mao’s communists in 1945, decisively assisting the communists in the Chinese Civil War, the Chinese now indirectly demanded territorial concessions on the basis that the 19th-century treaties transferring ownership of the sparsely populated Outer Manchuria, concluded by Qing dynasty China and the Russian Empire, were “Unequal Treaties”, and amounted to annexation of rightful Chinese territory. Moscow would not accept this interpretation, but by 1964 the two sides did reach a preliminary agreement on the eastern section of the border, including Zhenbao Island, which would be handed over to China.

    In July 1964, Mao Zedong, in a meeting with the Japanese Socialist Party delegation, stated that Russia had stripped China of vast territories in Siberia and the Far East as far as Kamchatka. Mao stated that China still had not presented a bill for this list. These comments were leaked to the public. Outraged, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev then refused to approve the border agreement.

    Aren’t we constantly–and correctly–reminded of the patience of China’s leadership?

Their “socialism” is about as authentic as that other “socialism” that became very popular during the 1930’s in Germany.

    What they really managed to accomplish is to change Darwin’s theory about the survival of the fittest into survival of the richest. And that’s not going to get the job done. The rich can’t survive by themselves, without taking proper care of those who made them rich. That’s where things are starting to fall apart.

    Capitalism is the same as all the systems that preceded it, along with the one that tried to succeed it- they first take care of the elites, and then the leftovers go to the workaholics. The difference between capitalism and the other systems was that for a while, even after the elites were well taken care of, there was plenty left for the underclasses.

    But then the capitalists got really smart and decided to slow down that trickle down effect of wealth to the lower classes by trying to pretend that they are cosmopolitan humanists, by bringing in every imaginable minority from around the world.

    The problem with that is that their fake humanism doesn’t do anything to improve the quality of life for the domestically raised deplorables – who can’t even brag that they are cosmopolitan humanists too, because there is nothing in it for them.

    And because of that they are called racists and intolerant and other stupidities. The bottom line is that the time is running out for the splendidly choreographed maskenball of cosmopolitan humanism. Because it’s all phony.

    How many Russian drones reached Incirlik? If you would read the article you would know that Russia and Turkey are not at war.

    I guess the head-choppers must be making their own drones. Things that can travel 50 kilometers with remote control. No Turkish / Israeli / American / British / French input. Smart guys. 🙂

    You are talking crap. Because you do not bother to take a look at map.

    In July 1964, Mao Zedong, in a meeting with the Japanese Socialist Party delegation, stated that Russia had stripped China of vast territories in Siberia and the Far East as far as Kamchatka.

    I can read a map and I know where Siberia and the Kamchatka Peninsula are located–in Russia.

    I also know where to this day a massive portrait of Mao Zedong is publicly displayed–in a place of honor in the heart of Beijing.

    I don’t believe in “disinformation agents” behind every contrarian opinion, but that comment would be one. He’s got a vague grasp of the situation but overplays the hand.

    He’s right, for example, about Soviet boomers: they’re obsessed with military and intelligence, and couldn’t care less about how shitty the country is otherwise. That’s a real problem. Even if Russians wanted to do things differently, they know the old Soviet types next-door wouldn’t cooperate anyhow, so they don’t bother, and nothing changes or gets done. They are deeply averse to change, so that anything changed in living memory is actually a miracle.

    Russians work not because they’re hard-working, but because the wages are borderline inhuman, in fact India-tier. And they cut corners or just give up relentlessly, as another commentator notes. They really just don’t care about the job they do and it shows in every job they do, from phone sales to building-construction. Things work up to a point, and that point is where the worker stopped giving a shit. “Nu i shto” is the real operating principle in Russian society. The reason for this is simple, and the same one that applies to blacks: they didn’t invent civilization, but were dragged into it – so they’re imperfect at it.

    He is right about the Armenian/Jew media complex. It’s utterly worthless bilge, across the board. There have to be about five WWII channels. Channel 1 had some psychics on recently “predicting” that Russia would totally destroy COVID-19 and Biden would die. People believe this sort of thing. It isn’t blacks and trannies, but it’s retarded. Paradoxically, they’re not lining up for Sputnik-V, for which they deserve credit.

    His bit about “destructive trends” in the society is outdated – I think it refers to the 90’s or something, when heroin was everywhere. Yea, there are some needles out behind that electrical shed, but there really isn’t anything horrible going on otherwise. Russia is not the “wild” place of YouTube fame at all; in fact it’s deadly boring and monotonous. Kids in “chunky” sneakers hang out at McDonald’s along with Hach and his pals; they barely even mix.

    I don’t know. When I read the Saker’s stuff on the glorious and indomitable Russian military, I am almost proud to be here and regret wanting to leave, for almost anywhere. But then I remember what’s just outside the window and can’t square it this obsession with defending a country that is so ramshackle, so ugly and sad.

    America is now ruled by people older than the ‘gerontocracy’ of Soviet Union’s twilight days

    Correction: we don’t know the ages of people who actually rule the US. Their figureheads (corrupt senile Biden, corrupt but not yet senile Pelosi, etc.) are a lot older than Soviet Politburo of the 1980s, but they don’t rule, they serve the rulers for a consideration.

    One thing we can be sure about is that real US rulers are stupid and inept. Their belligerent rhetoric, their destruction of the US military by “diversity”, as well as their childishly ham-handed election fraud show that. There is one thing that makes stupid people dangerous: they are unpredictable. Clowns like Biden are irrelevant, but the stupidity of the US elites is.

    It is not that simple. Along with Covid an enemy could introduce another more dangerous biowarfare vector. Therefore, since this is not a natural but a man-made and deliberately spread pathogen a country like Russia has to treat it as serious because it could be, or could become, a cover for a more devastating attack. Besides, in the age of biowarfare, a drill for the population is not a bad idea since Russia is surrounded by hostile biowarfare labs. And this is not over yet. The Russian vaccine is not mRna, such as the New World Dictatorship is forcing on the world. Sputnik V vaccine is a traditional vaccine, without or with less of the obvious dangers of the Pfizer and Moderna. The Russians were working on their vaccine since Sars I. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are fake. They actually have nothing to do with Covid. They do not protect against Covid in the least. Their purpose is to brand, track, and control the slave population, along with an ideology of Transhumanism and development of future methods of mind control. It is obvious that they were working on them before Covid, which is only a pretext. The plan is to introduce lockdowns and loosen lockdowns and start new lockdowns until by harassment they get the people to submit. The New World Dictatorship does not have any more compassion for human life in the West than they showed in the countries they have already destroyed. The Dictatorship is already transhuman.

    Trillions wasted in the Military-Industrial-Congressional-Intelligence-Media-Academia-Think-Tank complex, while U.S. infrastructure is crumbling.

    The State of U.S. Infrastructure

    Council on Foreign Relations

    ”The $20 trillion U.S. economy relies on a vast network of infrastructure from roads and bridges to freight rail and ports to electrical grids and internet provision. But the systems currently in place were built decades ago, and economists say that delays and rising maintenance costs are holding economic performance back. Civil engineers raise safety concerns as well, warning that many bridges are structurally deficient and that antiquated drinking water and wastewater systems pose risks to public health. Meanwhile, Americans’ international peers enjoy more efficient and reliable services, and the U.S. lags behind other developed countries in infrastructure spending.”

    ”The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has compiled regular “report cards” on the state of U.S. infrastructure since the 1980s. In its 2017 report, the ASCE found that the nation’s infrastructure averaged a “D+,” meaning that conditions were “mostly below standard,” exhibiting “significant deterioration,” with a “strong risk of failure.” The group estimated [PDF] that there is a total “infrastructure gap” of more than $2 trillion needed by 2025 that if failed to be addressed would result in almost $4 trillion of GDP lost.”

    The New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START):

    ”Nuclear warhead limit: Seven years after entry into force (Feb. 5, 2018), New START limits went into effect that capped accountable deployed strategic nuclear warheads and bombs at 1,550, down approximately 30 percent from the 2,200 limit set by SORT and down 74 percent from the START-accountable limit of 6,000. Each heavy bomber is counted as one warhead (see below).

    Missile, bomber and launcher limits: Deployed intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs), and heavy bombers assigned to nuclear missions are limited to 700. Deployed and non-deployed ICBM launchers, SLBM launchers, and bombers are limited to 800. This number includes test launchers and bombers and Trident submarines in overhaul and is approximately a 50 percent reduction from the 1,600 launcher-limit set under START (SORT did not cover launchers). The 800 ceiling is intended to limit the ability for “break out” of the treaty by preventing either side from retaining large numbers of non-deployed launchers and bombers.

    New START does not limit the number of non-deployed ICBMs and SLBMs, but it does monitor them and provide for continuous information on their locations and on-site inspections to confirm that they are not added to the deployed force. Non-deployed missiles must be located at specified facilities away from deployment sites and labeled with “unique identifiers” to reduce concerns about hidden missile stocks.” (emphasis added)

In fact, they were stupid enough to believe their own lies and started massive fraud late in the game. On the evening of the election day Trump was leading in every swing state, with 85-99% ballots counted within a few hours. They “counted” the remaining ballots for nearly two weeks, as they needed a lot of time to produce millions of “ballots” for the senile clown to flip swing states. They had to fake impossible “participation” of 90-98%, in some places they even had to go over 100% to counteract large margins of Trump’s win. Not to mention the other two statistical impossibilities I already pointed out. Now the cabal uses wholly owned MSM to tell the gullible that everything is hanky-dory.

    Fascinating,that report actually emanating from the CFR, the American branch of the British control nexus via the Tavistock Institute and Chatham House. Those institutions essentially are distribution modes for “approved” policies promulgated by the financier, bankster, capitalist elite. Reason for all the media attacks on Russia, Iran and China is that the WarDefense industry is far and away the #1 profit maker for the Lords of City of London and the Masterds of Wall $treet.

    Essentially, all the money which is wasted on the WarDefense industry and the U$ and the rest of the “Five Eyes”, by means of created enemies, is thereby unavailable for reconstruction of America’s badly decaying and even dissolving infrastructure.

    On a purely personal basis my own sister was driving north over the I-35 bridge crossing the Mississippi River in Minneapolis on a summer day a few years back when the bridge collapsed right in front of her. She was actually one car-length from calamity. Several other motorists were not so fortunate that day. A few years back the Enbridge pipeline crossing the Kalamazoo River in Michigan “blew a gasket”, releasing thousands of gallons of petroleum, much of which ultimately reached Lake Michigan despite heroic efforts to stave off the spillage.

    Congre$$critter$, who are owned lock, stock and poppycock by the WarDefense industry (think high paying government contract jobs in their districts) are uniformly opposed to reducing the “defense” budget and putting those funds to work where they are sorely needed. It is likely that if this country was to commit to a massive drive to repair the infrastructure, the loss of “defense” jobs could readily be replaced by employment in more humanly useful occupations.

    I see this quality in President Putin on his good days, but I do not see it in …. any other institution other than the Orthodox Church and the military.

    Having met many Russian millenials and GenXers I agree with most of what you said. However, that last part is a white pill. It’s that last part in the quote above that makes Russia ever so slightly better than the USA and gives reason for hope.

    Putin truly is a hopeless boomer. Just because his daddy fought in the “Great Patriotic War” and his older brother died in the siege of Leningrad, Putin will always be quintessential Russian patriotard who still thinks Russia won a war against “Fascism,” not realizing that the Jewish Bolsheviks used his family as convenient cannon fodder for eliminating what to Global Jewry seemed like the only real threat at the time, the red-pilled Axis powers. Funny enough, most of the Russians fighting in the same regiment as Putin’s father wisely defected to the German side – Putin’s father represents the blue-pilled minority of Russians who actually lapped up the propaganda and willingly served as useful idiots for the war effort, while wiser and more red-pilled Russians were purged, imprisoned, or defected to the German side (no wonder the average age of senior officers in the Soviet army was under 40). Add to that the fact that Putin spent his childhood being propagandized by hokey Soviet spy movies and Eisenstein disinformation films.

    Putin is patriotic in a way that is so analogous to the American boomer equivalent that it is truly black-pilling. You had Jewish filmmakers like Eisenstein making anti-German propaganda films like Alexander Nevsky and Battleship Potemkin for Russian consumption on one side of the pond. On the other, you had Jewish directors like Michael Curtis, Jewish writers like Julius and Phillip Epstein, and Jewish studio moguls like Jack Warner making propaganda films like Casablanca for American consumption. Is it any surprise that Eisenstein could freely go to Hollywood to collaborate with other Jewish filmmakers despite the “ideological tensions” that ostensibly existed between Bolshevik Russia and the USA. Jews on one side of the pond telling one group of white Christian gentiles that Germany is the enemy, Jews on the other side of the pond telling another group of white Christian gentiles that Germany is the enemy, all the while wining and dining with each other. And after Germany and Japan are out of the way, the same Jews tell these white Americans and white Russians to start seeing each other as the enemy.

    Azerbaijan just ate Putin’s lunch by crushing Armenia’s entire AA systems…

    That’s complete nonsense.

    First, Azerbaijan was fighting against the breakaway ‘Artsakh’ republic, not Armenia proper, which is a member of the CSTO and hosts a Russian airbase.

    Neither Armenia itself, nor any of its equipment, was hit by ANYTHING. Had any missile or artillery hit anything in Armenia proper, Russia would have been OBLIGATED under the defense treaty to step in and would have shut Azerbaijan down in the space of a few hours. Azerbaijan was cognizant of this and left Armenia alone.

    The reasons for Azerbaijan’s victory are manifold, not least among them the ineptitude of the Pashinyan government for fumbling support to the Artsakh rebels. Many calls for men and equipment went unheeded. It was as if Soros man Pashinyan was doing everything he could to let them twist in the wind.

    The Artsakh side had very little in either equipment, or manpower, or the ability to use equipment capably. That Azerbaijan did a fair bit of damage is obvious, but they also lost several THOUSAND men and a lot of machines.

    As for this idiotic idea of ‘drones winning against air defense,’ this is a disneyland fantasy peddled by person that have absolutely ZERO professional knowledge of either military aviation and other weapons technologies.

    I will be preparing a detailed technical article on my website on this subject, as I had done last year on the Houthi cruise missile attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities. [And no it was cruise missiles, NOT DRONES].

    The average clown writing in the media, such as the popular ‘War Zone’ and the like has absolutely zero qualifications in either engineering or military matters. They get their ‘information’ from people connected to the information apparatus of the various stink tanks and such PR flacks. This is why the average moron like yourself is so comically uninformed.

    If you actually knew even the basics of what a drone actually is and what it can do, you would think differently.

    These UAVs are basically a light aircraft of the ultralight class. Smaller and lighter than say a Cessna 172 that a civilian student pilot would train in. The Turkish drones [as well as the US Predator] are powered by the SAME small four-cylinder engine that powers literally thousands of ultralight aircraft. These engines are made by Rotax in Austria, a division of the Canadian company Bombardier Recreational Products, which is best known for snowmobiles and watercraft. Canada stopped supplying these engines to Turkey as a result of their use in Nagorno Karabakh, likely due to pressure from the influential Armenian community.

    Turkey is incapable of even producing its own small engine of 100 hp, which is what is used in these UAVs. So how do you think they are going to come up with a magic flying machine that is going to take out Russian air defense systems?

    These small UAVs can reach a speed of about 100 mph tops, about the same as an ultralight, and slower than a Cessna 172. The US used Predators against the Serbs in 1999 and practically each one that was launched was shot down.

    General Atomics MQ1 Predator shot down in May, 1999, at the Belgrade Aviation Museum. Note, in the bottom right of the frame are the canopy and tail feathers of the F16 shot out from under then Lt Col David Goldfein, who would go on to become the USAF Chief of Staff. In another corner of the museum is the wreckage of the ‘stealth’ F117 Nighthawk also downed by the same Serb air defense brigade. All of those kills with ancient Soviet S125s dating from the 1950s.

    The US and its Nato partners threw over 1,000 aircraft at Serbia and did not manage to even put a dent in its air defenses. The air war is considered a draw by most professional air combat practitioners.

    These small drone aircraft do have a role to play, although it is NOT to try to attack any actual air defense equipment. That would be laughable, and the tool used for that job is the fighter aircraft firing radar-homing missiles that travel at Mach 2 or 3 [20 times faster than an ultralight powered Bayraktar drone]. Nato fired a grand total of 743 of those missiles [HAARMs, for high-speed anti-radiation missile, used against air defense radar] during the three month air campaign against Serbia and managed to take out only THREE small, short-range SA6 mobile launchers.

    Of course you are not alone in not actually knowing anything about these highly technical things. But the absolute silliness of the noises in the retarded US media [especially when it comes to technical matters regarding military aviation technologies] is really beyond belief. If anything, Saker is 100 percent spot on in identifying the entire Anglosphere as completely delusional.

    Both Russia and China were historically separated by nomadic tribes – people with horses and powerful bows. At one time, these nomads united and occupied most of Russia and all of China. Eventually, the Russians kicked them out with modern weaponry and absorbed many of them. The Chinese were able withing a few generations to turn their descendants into Chinese. 10% of today’s Chinese have the DNA of Ghengis Khan and his brothers. The Ukrainians and Russians have a big dose of Asian blood. Just look at them.

    China and Russia steadily encroached on the vast lands between their population centres – Beijing/Shanghai and Moscow. A look at a map of the Great Wall of China shows that it is partly near the outskirts of Beijing. Everything beyond it was nomad territory historically. Chinese farmers could not live there in safety.

    It is ridiculous of either China or Russia to claim historical ownership of these nomadic territories. Both countries have no reason to dispute the current arrangement. China has plenty of ports and has absolutely no need for Vladivostok. But for Russia, and indirectly China, it is of strategic importance.

    For a good introduction as to the history above, I suggest your read Arnold Toynbee’s masterpiece. The paperback costs $750 on Amazon. The Kindle version only $10.

    Not just profit. 9/11 made billions in insurance fraud and many more in insider stock trading but the main goal was political: a false flag to send the US on an errand to destroy Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Iran and to exert control through a fake war on terror.

    Many years later I met a pair of Serbs who were “camping” in a remote US forest. We got drunk. They said they’d fought OTAN and claimed to have been involved in a shoot-down.

    {Russia would have been OBLIGATED under the defense treaty to step in and would have shut Azerbaijan down in the space of a few hours. Azerbaijan was cognizant of this and left Armenia alone}

    This came out about a week ago: (….you have to follow Armenian language interviews and such to learn about it….) About 1 month (!) before Sept 27th attack by Azerbaijan, Turkey, and its hired terrorists from Syria, CSTO sent confidential information to Armenian Gov that there will be a massive attack by Azerbaijan, Turkey, and 1,000s of terrorists brought from Syria against Artsakh. It urged Armenia to officially request assistance from CSTO (….read Russia), and begin war-games under the auspices of anti-terrorist operations. CSTO told Armenia that Artsakh (and Armenia) will be fighting Turkey/NATO*, and they will get badly mauled. Armenia PM SorosaAgent Pashinoğlu ignored the warning. After the war disaster, it slowly became known why: the war was planned and meant to be lost by the SorosaAgent and his gang.

    I wrote a long post in another thread detailing how this traitor and his gang brought this disaster to Artsakh and Armenia.

    Look CLOWN…Armenia doesn’t have any S300s, never mind the Artsakh rebels.

    Russia has its OWN S300 system at its Gyumri airbase in Armenia, where Russian MiG29 fighter jets are permanently stationed. Those are owned and under the command of Russia.

    Russia has also stationed another S300 unit in Akhkazia, the breakaway Georgian province whose independence was recognized by Russia after Georgia attacked the region in 2008 [and was quickly shut down].

    A map showing the ranges of Russian air defense locations in the region, from a 2017 report, New Russian Weaponry in the Caucasus and Its Impact on Georgia’s NATO Aspiration.

    Russia has never sold S300s to Armenia, nor is there any need to since it operates its own there, and Armenia is under the Russian security shield under the CSTO.

    As for Israeli drones, your ‘knowledge’ of this is about as useful as your other youtube-sourced ‘information’. Israel does make UAVs of the Predator class, but is not exporting those. It is exporting much smaller craft that are not much bigger than giant-scale radio models. These are typically powered by small Wankel engines [think Mazda rotary] that have been used in the past on very small boats and the like.

    Obviously such small craft, weighing maybe a couple of hundred pounds, cannot carry much explosives. Azerbaijan shot down a lot of these Israeli drones:

    IAI Harop UAV ‘loitering munition’ shot down in Karabakh.

    Another Harop brought down by Karabakh fighters.

    Here, the air-cooled small Wankel engine is visible in another wrecked IAI drone in Karabakh.

    Here’s one photographed in Azerbaijan before the war. Naturally a know-nothing clown like yourself will believe that these toys can do what 1,000 US and Nato aircraft couldn’t do in Serbia–and not against S300, but against S125.

    That may be the case with Russia’s vaccines, however the vaccines being used in the US are mRNA which are DNA changing and are experimental ie using the takers into lab rats, I and my family will not be taking these UN Agenda 2030 diabolical , demonic, vaccines.

    The chemtrails being sprayed in the skies all over the world and the skies of America and here in Montana the chemtrails have been sprayed for over 3o years by my own observation and even all this month they sprayed, rarely a day goes by without the spraying, and these chemtrails contain nano-particles of barium and strontium and aluminum an more, these chemicals are harmful to our health and are going into not only the air, but the water we drink and the soil we grow our crops in.

    The spraying is being done by the government to control the weather and to ionize the sky to enable HAARP to heat the atmosphere and guide storm fronts for their nefarious agendas and to enable 5G to be transmitted through the atmosphere, if interested here are some sites to go to, stopthecrime.net, geoengineeringwatch.org, elanafreeland.com, haarp.net, globalskywatch.com, and Elana Freeland has a book that can be had on amazon and explains chemtails and why they are spraying, the book is Under an Ionized Sky:From Chemtrails to Space Fence Lockdown, this book is documented from fron to back.

    Because of Chemtrail spraying the puffy marshmellow clouds of the past are gone, the blue sky of Montana is gone and in its place are long horizontal chemtrail formed clouds and a sky that most days looks like skimmed milk.

    vaccines being used in the US are mRNA which are DNA changing and are experimental

    The “vaccines” from Pfizer and Moderna are claimed to be mRNA and alleged to have undergone clinical trials, but more likely than not they are just money making fakes. Take it from a person who made mRNA in vitro for 30+ years, RNA is the least stable molecule living things have. The air, your breath, blood, and the space between cells in your body have lots of RNases (enzymes that specifically degrade RNAs). The half-life of any RNA is quite short outside of the cell, and short even inside: the levels of mRNAs needed to make proteins are maintained by their constant synthesis on DNA template (the process of copying RNA off DNA template is called transcription). Pfizer claims that its “vaccine” mRNA is protected from RNases by covalent modifications by polyethyleneglycol (PEG), but I strongly suspect that it’s BS. To make protein from mRNA cells use ribosomes, and ribosomes won’t work with chemically modified mRNA.

    Bottom line is, your genes are safe, and so is corona virus. You are right to refuse these “vaccines”, but for wrong reasons.

    Yes, that second F117 pilot finally went public. You will remember I have been saying that for a very long time, in fact I knew this 15 years ago.

    Back in 2005, the late Col Everest Riccioni published a technical critique of the F22 in which he mentions the second F117 that was hit and then written off, see page 10 footnote 18.

    Btw, Col Riccioni who was a legendary test pilot and taught aerospace engineering at USAFA, talks a bit about how the F117 was the stealthiest aircraft, far more so than the F22 and F35 which don’t have the key feature you need for radar stealth, which is the faceted shaping with lots of edges.

    I have talked about this before, but those edges are what makes radiowave diffraction possible. The inventor of stealth was Russian physicist Petr Ufimtsev, who is known in the US as the father of stealth. In his early 1960s monograph he set out the theretofore unknown physics of radio wave diffraction in respect to solid objects. This was translated by USAF in 1971, and the Lockheed and Northrop stealth aircraft were built using that math and physics. This is all public knowledge that can be easily looked up.

    Ufimtsev’s seminal monograph is called The Method of Edge Waves in the Physical Theory of Diffraction. It is a book length treatise and will be understandable only to physicists and engineers with a good foundation of electromagnetism. You can still download the English translation from the USAF, I believe the Wright-Patterson server.

    Those few specialists who have read it and can understand it [I have a copy], will tell you that it is impossible for CURVED objects to display the desired ‘stealth’ characteristic of scattering radio waves. That’s why its called EDGE waves. Col Riccioni pointed this out in detail in a much longer technical report that does the math on the F22. It’s supposed ‘stealth’ is a FAKE, naturally, since it lacks the necessary edges.

    All this stealth crapola is simply a gimmick used by the big defense contractors to milk exorbitant amounts of money for an aircraft that is hyped up as having supernatural powers. Of course it doesn’t. The F117 did have actual stealth, but it proved not to work against ground radar. col Riccioni points this out. The shaping only works from a specific angle, and that angle is head-on and at the same height, so any radar coming from below, it will not work.

    Still, even this limited stealth capability could be useful in the air-to-air role. But of course, the F35 and F22 can come nowhere near the stealth of F117 because the entire physics depends on thsoe edges which they don’t have.

    So-called ‘stealth’ is is fake as the mRNA vaccine, as our resident microbioligist points out here.

    Thanks for that info. Doesn’t surprise me that Pashinyan turns out to be a traitor. I haven’t been following the details too closely, but everything you said sounds plausible.

    I have noticed the ridiculous propaganda coming from the Turks about their drone ‘prowess’. There was one photoshopped video of a turkish drone supposedly destroying a Pantsir either in Libya or Syria, where it was clearly visible that all the explosion fragments were of identical shape. Really poorly done. These Turkish clowns have made a lot of noise on social media, and I have noticed that they have edited just ridiculous garbage into wikipedia also.

    The fact is that the Turks got their clocks cleaned in Idlib in last year’s SAA offensive. The Syrians had no trouble eliminating those ‘famous’ Turkish drones and it certainly didn’t help the rebels’ cause, as Syria swallowed half of that entire Idlib territory in the very successful offensive. The Turkish ‘observation posts’ were left stranded in the middle of SAA-held territory. As of the last couple of weeks they have been quietly evacuating those.

    And remember that finally Erdogan was called to the carpet in Moscow, back in March.

    The Red Army was defeated, Stalin was having a nervous breakdown, and the Wehrmacht was at the gates of Moscow. The only thing the jewish kommisars running the Soviet Gulag hated more than the SS who were knocking on their door was the Russian peasant soldiers they were busy getting genocided.

    It was the exceptionally cold winter and the emergency aid from the jewish Capitalists running England and the US that saved their sorry kike asses. Oh yes, we mustn’t forget their shabbez puppet Roosevelt’s success in dragging Japan to war so that the talmudic blood sacrificers could reinforce Moscow with troops and material from the far east.

    The real truth here, the truth the shabbez Russians can never accept, is that Jews killed far more Russians in WWII than the Wehrmacht and the SS ever did, and these Kazarians also killed far more jews than the Heer did either.

    All the Russian POW’s and peasants who died in 1941 were also genocided by Jews as well through their refusal to sign the Geneva Conventions, their sabotage of transportation infrastructure and their scorched earth policy designed to create a second Holodomor.

Per good competent analysis–most of it is in social forums and a crop of sites such as Alternatio, JP etc.

    I would have to strongly dispute that description Mr Martyanov. Maybe Vz.ru was like that 10 years before ( I don’t know as I did not read it much then) and that is what biases your perception. For me ,I would not describe it like that at all – but as an original extensive website that has some particularly clever and interesting articles on many things , but particularly on international affairs – not the irrelevant ,boring non-entity geopolitical stuff that that interest 5th column frauds like Lukyanov and Karaganov – but on trade, economics, military, energy, serious geopolitics ,culture and historical stuff on Russia, the west, Russia vs the west…. but especially on ex USSR and eastern bloc.

    Ironically – news aggregator and tabloid is exactly how I would describe RT’s output.

    As for Tass – some very good infographics, but ultimately has a load of scum, liberast 5th column trash that would defect in 2 seconds if America entered.

    RIA , has fortunately purged most of their liberast excrement

    I would also dispute the use of the term “tabloid” in a western sense for vz and actually many Russian media . Tabloid to me means an overemphasis of showbusiness or other trash stories and “sensationalism” which some may call exaggeration….but to me , in Russia we have a huge amount of sensational, extreme stories that don’t require any artificial sensationalism and don’t deserve to be referred to as “tabloid”…….plus we have a high degree of intellectualism in Russia that sometimes goes into overthinking in our society and journalism , and which certainly does not deserve to be called “tabloid” in the western sense.

    Lifenews from 2013-2016 ( now just called Life.ru) , possibly fits the description of “tabloid” , but it was easily the greatest ever news organisation in the history of the planet for those years….both on TV and text. Some of the bravest, well-informed,detailed , important and interesting reporting and articles ever written ….and some of the most courageous and craziest ever tv journalism from their guys in Donbass was occuring, before Ashotich had other ideas about how he thinks news organisations should focus in this era and changed their methods. They have eliminated their tv work and significantly reduced their text news/articles output – although there are still some very interesting investigations.

    BTW, was it actually true what Giuliani said – that Joe Frazier( equally as famous in Philadelphia as Nelson Mandela in South Africa or Pope John Paul the second in Poland) voted in this election despite being dead for afew years?!

    The problem here is distinguishing between cheating ( the authorities) and electoral fraud ( the voters) – and Trumps claims are failing to do so – and making him look more of a retard.

    You tell me how these mail-in ballots our organised – are they a deeply individual thing? where an individual person has to complete an exhaustive form just to get it………or is it something that is sent out to every house, and only THEN requires registration in a 2 second process….and is massively exposed to one psychotically anti-Trump person in the house just filling in and posting the ballots for every registered person in that house ( and certain to do for anybody not interested in voting), because the whole thing is so non-individual? It appears to me you could easily get 100’s of 1000s of votes decided like this.

    Mail in votes are normally intended as an irrelevant , sideshow process just to ensure everyone can take part in the civic process and show some patriotism , i.e honest military guys and those living overseas. The numbers of this may be afew million but nothing to dictate an individual state. General mass mail-in-votes are an entirely different level and entirely undemocratic.

    From what I see , it is not just the BLM loser thug families where this could happen ( one family member filling in all other family member votes) – but a comfortable middle-class family with a nursery school teacher mother, religiously hating Trump to the level that she would abandon her normal moral code to fraudulently fill in the ballot of not just herself, but of her Husband and 2 young-adult University age children!

    You tell me how these mail-in ballots our organised

    Unfortunately, the rules of this process are very different in different states, although all Americans were supposed to elect a common president. In and of itself, this is ridiculous.

    In some states, like TN or TX (Trump won in both) it is hard to rig the elections via mail-in ballots. I know that in TN the overall score of mail-in ballots closely followed that of in-person voting. In those states where Biden allegedly won (PA, AZ, and many others) it is very easy. There was a report of an AZ man who moved to TN, voted in TN, and then to his utter surprise discovered that he “voted” in AZ via mail-in ballot (signature verified, no less). One curious journo compared signatures on mail-in ballots in NV (where Biden allegedly won) and found that in 88% of the cases “verified” signature isn’t even close to registration signature. The stats show that while Obama won 873 counties with 69 million votes, Biden with alleged 80 million votes won only 477 counties. Apparently relatively few precincts were willing to engage in fraud, so the fraudsters had to use only those shameless enough to participate in their game.

    Basically, in 2020 the US election system was discredited beyond redemption. Chances are, massive fraud in 2020 US elections was a death knell for “representative democracy”, which turned out to be neither representative, nor democracy.

    I have no doubt that soldiers from Soviet (Russian, Ukrainian, Belorussian, etc.) villages never saw a WC (water closet) in their lives. Now, what do we call an army that lost the war to another army, most of whose soldiers never saw a WC? Do you think that’s something to be proud of?

  158. @AnonFromTN

    In those states where Biden allegedly won (PA, AZ, and many others) it is very easy.

    I still suspect that electoral fraud is more likely going to happen intra-family, and not as part of a grand conspiracy from the Democrats ( well, I am sure they dishonestly wanted more mail-in ballots as electoral fraud would more likely occur on their side than the other…..but not that they physically falsified results) . As I infer from your explanation of the rules…….intra-family electoral fraud is entirely possible in some of these states then went to Biden.
    It’s too easy to do ( I suspect even with signature checking because my own signature is directly influenced by the style of one of my parents!), they would be highly motivated to do so and I am sure it would not cause them any moral confusion when the opportunity is staring at them.

    Trump has not been smart in this farce though – actual counting votes ,or the need to closely monitor the polling stations are probably not the reason this election has been fraudulent……..but these 2 issues have been 2 of several of his ways to attack the election

  159. @Dr. Charles Fhandrich

    Indeed they arrived in Berlin where some of them first saw and misidentified what a “toilet” was.

    So these men ( BTW probably the greatest men in history to have walked on the planet) went all the way through Vienna, Prague,Bratislava, Konigsberg , Budapest , Belgrade and many other European cities and towns……. without seeing or having anybody explain to them what a toilet was before they reached Berlin?

    A lot of disinformation in your post.

    but I’ve read that Germany’s forces committed many atrocities when they invaded Poland, including the massacre of thousands of civilians (who, BTW, they considered Slavic untermenschen ).

    It sounds like you are thinking of the Katyn Massacres, which were blamed on the Nazis but actually found out to be committed by the Soviet army. The “Slavic untermenschen” stuff is overexaggerated – Slavs formed the bulk of the Waffen SS. The Ukrainians greeted the Nazis as liberators

    Also, shortly after the beginning of the war in western Europe, nazi Germany bombed Rotterdam even after they had received word that Holland had surrendered … because the bombers were already on their way.

    No, they bombed Rotterdam because they HADN’T received word that Holland surrendered. And one group of bombers didn’t get the message about the Dutch surrender, so the bombing was completely a mistake.

    The morning of the 14th, the Dutch received and ultimatum from the Germans. Surrender, or Rotterdam would be destroyed. The Dutch were considering it, but requested a German officer to sign the notice with name and rank. At some point in this long sequence of communication, German bombers were ordered to destroy the city. As the final notice containing the German officer’s signature, with name and rank, was sent, a group of 27 bombers arrived to the city out of the south. Red flares were drawn by the Germans to protect from friendly fire. It was too late for the city, and the first three bombers dropped their bombs. The remaining 24 turned westward as they saw the red smoke.

    The second group of bombers (60 bombers in this group) then arrived from the north. This group couldn’t see the red smoke at all, and unleashed a fury of 100 and 500-pound bombs all over the city. The attack lasted 15 minutes.

    https://www.warhistoryonline.com/today-in-history/8-things-need-know-1940-rotterdam-terror-bombing.html

    In any case, only a small number of people died in the bombing of Rotterdam, as the Germans carefully chose targets to avoid civilian casualties. The British, however, used this as propaganda to justify wanton fire-bombing of German civilians and non-military targets.

    So did Russia really back the wrong side? It sounds like a choice between two monsters

    The two monsters would be Churchill and Stalin. Also, there was no “Russia” at that time, and it didn’t matter who they “backed,” as the Bolshevik regime was an illegitimate and wicked regime and not in a position to make moral judgments about anyone else.

    Personally, I think you’d like Charles Bausman at Russia Insider. The future of Russia needs to be russia-insider.com, with the ideological ilk of Charles Bausman (and Dr. Matthew Raphael Johnson) leading the way, not the Saker. Don’t get me wrong – Saker has some valuable insights and would be useful as an adjunct contributor to Russia Insider, but that’s the most suitable role for him to play in advancing Russia nationalism and Russian interests. As you said, he speaks to a certain demographic and is useful much like Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul are useful on the right in an American context. That being said, I’m tired of Sakers and Dugins who whitewash the JQ and use Nazis as a foil for their patriotic displays of bravado.

    Russia,meh,its a cess pit,run by the residue of the old failed totalitarian state, idiots like Putin who are replicating all the worst policies of that old failure

    Anyone who reads the sites you’ve described,and takes them seriously as sources of valuable information is soft in the head

  174. I’ve been saying that neither Russia nor China cares who is POTUS. They know better than anyone that the US president has little to do with foreign policy and they couldn’t care less what the USA does to itself inside their own borders. The last two admins in Washington have amply demonstrated that foreign policy is not in the control of the president. The Pentagon has more to say and Israel has even more say. Russia and China both get along well with Israel. They can buy US secrets directly from The Zionists if there were any worth knowing. I frankly don’t think the USA has any game changing secrets either, it is a has been before its time. The shitshow of an election we just witnessed was the biggest and last nail in the Republic. Now it is all over except for the screaming and wailing which will ensue in its turn.

    Speaking of China buying US secrets from the Chosen Ones ™, didn’t Jonathan Pollard just enjoy a heroes welcome back in the Stolen Land?

  175. The Russia accusations against Trump, are why his admin went so hard against Russia. To prove Donald wasn’t a Putin stooge. The China hysteria surrounding Joe the child sniffer is why the Dems in power will lash out even harder against China. To prove that Joe the 10% big guy isn’t on Xi’s leash.

    Business between corrupt US politicians and your own crooks in suits does not confer any rights to influence over that American pirate or US foreign policy. The USA is in the business of hustling. To them diplomacy is a euphemism for hustling. American delegations are hustlers, they’re all individually and collectively out for a buck. The US love affair with Capitalism is more an obsessive all consuming fetish. Not a healthy relationship, they pursue it like a heroin junkie chases his drug. It is the sole reason for their existence and to be in government there just means you’re among the biggest hustlers in the place. Trump was an unabashed capitalist and hustlers all his life. His profiteering in the office has not been hard to spot but despite a number of very specific examples I noticed that the supposedly hateful, TDS afflicted Leftist media never shone a spotlight on. Beyond berating him in general for being a crook and profiteer, their criticisms of his corruption have been steered carefully away from the big examples of profiting from office. This is because that is what it is all about. Why anyone wants the job of President and is on the inner track to actually be permitted to run. Those with quaint ideas of serving their country or doing some good for it are not even in the running. If any should slip past the bouncers and actually run the race. like Ron Paul they will be that tree that falls in a forest that nobody was present to hear. The answer to the old question is clear if one substitutes media for a person. If a tree falls in a forest and the media doesn’t report on it, did it make a sound? No obviously not. Nothing happens unless the reality projector media says it did. Also anything they say happened, did happen even if it did not actually really happen. Biden comes with his own hustle and no doubt if he mounts the gilded throne of Empire he will be stuffing his pockets and those of everyone around him like there’s no tomorrow. The media doesn’t touch this game because they are one leg of the stool as are the intel services or hidden hand of the bankers in my opinion. The bureaucracy itself which outlives many presidents and admins is one more. There’s a fourth leg I’m sure but someone else can find that if they care. The President gets to sit on that stool for a term or two. While there he gets to front for the show, be its face to the world. The president is a perfect funnel for some very big money and while some flows legitimately through the seen economy, a hell of a lot more goes into the pockets of anyone in any position to leverage their office for profit. None of the legs will give the game away, they will all stay put and corral, shield by misdirection and enable the corruption of the office because if it isn’t their turn on the gravy train, their turn is coming up anyway so no need to rock the cash boat. Nobody within this circle of privileged people ever gets any serious legal consequences for any of their major crimes either. They never have and they never will. No matter how much the one or the other speaks fiercely about legal repercussions and of ‘lock her up” or “Lock him up” about their opposition, they never do any such thing. They posture and indulge in expensive investigations and employ lots of lawyers in courts which have an internal legal code which designates some people exempt from normal laws and applies a different kind of justice than they usually profess to. If some mid level flunkies take a hit for the bigger fish up the line, a pardon within the next couple of Washington admins is a certainty.

    Anyway it has reached the end of the line. No more track for this runaway train and the wreck is imminent. The Empire of Hustle is facing the real Lady Liberty and her name is Karma. The snake will eat its tail. The nation has passed its use by date and the leftover people aren’t needed anymore since the main reason for the USA existence is over and a global world order is being installed as a new operating system. The USA is Windows 10 and its 2021. It is redundant. Too bad for those people but your country is over now. You’re expected to eat each other and turn out the lights. Go away, you’re not needed anymore and frankly are kind of an inconvenience. Your owners are liquidating the remains and going into receivership. The chattels, real estate and plant remain but the livestock aren’t part of the deal. You can import better labor and these ones are overfed, lazy and high maintenance because they’ve taken a lot of exceptional rhetoric onboard and actually believe they’re special and entitled to a lot of stuff that the modern people farmer isn’t inclined to shell out for in these troubled times when there’s less and less wealth for the poor billionaires to appropriate so they need to cut costs on their stock management. A bit of a cull might be in order too.
