“..only “a new horizon of human sacrifice” is capable of allowing the west’s “Ultimate Truth” to continue standing on its clay feet..””

Supporting Genocide To Halt Multipolarity (Pepe Escobar)

Andrea Zhok is a professor of Ethical Philosophy at the University of Milan and one of the foremost independent Italian intellectuals. Zhok takes us further into the – appropriately tragic – dead-end now contemplated by the collective west. The west under the Hegemon, he says, only ever had a Plan A. There was no Plan B. That implies the west will continue to apply all forms of Divide and Rule against the major Eurasian powers – Russia, China, and Iran. Zhok notes, correctly, that India is substantially under control. That’s the crossroads scenario we’re in right now. Looking ahead, it’s either an Open Hot War or an array of Hybrid Wars between major powers and their vassals – essentially, the Third World War. Zhok shows how the west under the Hegemon is now obsessed with creating “systemic wounds” capable of cyclical destruction. To open these “wounds,” there are two main procedures: war and pandemics.

He argues that only “a new horizon of human sacrifice” is capable of allowing the west’s “Ultimate Truth” to continue standing on its clay feet. In fact, it is this “new horizon of human sacrifice” that is conditioning the west’s non-response – or worse, legitimization – of the Gaza genocide. And that is inexorably corroding the European psyche from the inside. What used to be called European civilization – now completely vassalized by the Hegemon – may not ever be cured of the cancer. If these trials and tribulations were not enough, irrational messengers – under orders – are busy bringing us closer day after day to a nuclear war. And some lowly functionaries even admit it, point blank. It’s all here, in a conversation between Judge Andrew Napolitano and analysts Larry Johnson and Ray McGovern, during which the former refers to an email he received from a military/intel source. This is what the source told him:

Today, I listened to an extensive interview with an IDF ex-intelligence officer. His position was clear: ‘We are,’ he said, ‘aiming towards a world war’. Israel, therefore, shouldn’t stop itself from implementing some of the most radical measures because its actions will be measured retroactively in the context of the brutal world conflict to come. This should be seen as the ultimate explanation for the Hegemon/Vassals’ nonstop frantic escalation in the intertwined Forever Wars front – from Gaza to Novorossiya. That includes genocide – and genocide spin-offs, such as the $320 million ‘aid’ pier scam now turned into junk on the Gaza shore, bringing it all back to genocide all over again as the breadcrumb ploy of expelling/shipping Palestinians abroad has miserably failed. “Aiming towards a world war” makes it all so clear who’s really running the show. And the whole multipolar world is still being held hostage.

“The United States is holding on to enormous amounts of money to maintain its dominant role by supporting its [military] bases, but this contradicts the interests of the American people.”

Israel’s Response To 7 Oct Does Not Resemble War, But Genocide: Putin (Cradle)

Russian President Vladimir Putin criticized the Israeli war on the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip on 6 June, saying, “Israel’s response to the Hamas attack does not resemble a war, but rather a genocide of the people of Gaza.” Putin made the comments during a meeting with the World News Agency at the International Economic Forum in St. Petersburg. The Russian President also criticized the US, Israel’s strongest backer, for blocking efforts to end the war. “Russia was always in favor of working for a ceasefire” in Palestine, “but the United States was obstructing these decisions,” Putin said. The Russian President said that in contrast to the US, “Russia’s position on Palestine is consistent and unchangeable, and it is necessary to resolve the issue.”

In addition to supplying Israel with vast quantities of weapons, the US has vetoed multiple UN Security Council resolutions seeking to end the war. In seven months, Israel’s onslaught on the besieged Gaza Strip has killed almost 37,000 Palestinians, the majority women and children. Regarding the global role of the United States and China, the Iranian nuclear energy program, and the war in Ukraine, Putin explained, “The United States is holding on to enormous amounts of money to maintain its dominant role by supporting its [military] bases, but this contradicts the interests of the American people.”

The Russian President considered that “the current American leadership is seeking by all means to maintain its dominant role, but it will inevitably fail.” Regarding Iran’s nuclear energy program, Putin announced that “Iran has implemented everything required of it regarding the nuclear agreement, but the United States withdrew from this agreement.” He added that Russia “continues to cooperate with Iran in advanced technology regardless of the sanctions.” Regarding China, Putin stated that “the Chinese economic model is more important than what they are doing in Europe” and that Europe should “not place obstacles to economic relations with China.”

“Faced with the outbreak of a devastating war, what does the insane West do? Does the West sit down with Putin and resolve the situation. No. The West announces its plans of how it is going to get US troops to the front lines to fight Russia.”

Normalizing War with Russia (Paul Craig Roberts)

Russia has warned in no uncertain terms that NATO and the US will be held responsible for long range missiles launched into Russia and that such launches will turn Russia’s conflict with Ukraine into a war between Russia and the West. Putin has asked Western leaders to give clear thought to what they have in mind as their destruction will be the consequence. It is extraordinary that such a forceful warning is not heard except as an opportunity for more propaganda against Russia. The British response was to reveal NATO’s plan not for defusing a dangerous situation, but for delivering troops to counter a Russian invasion. In other words, the West poured oil on the fire. The British newspaper, The Telegraph published an article accusing Putin of “pursuing his paranoid obsession of confronting the West,” thus reversing the facts. It is the West that is confronting Russia in Ukraine, and it is the Western leaders who are preparing their publics for war with Russia.

Putin made it clear that his intervention in Ukraine was limited to Donbas, a Russian province stuck into the Ukraine province of the Soviet Union by Soviet rulers. When Washington overthrew the Ukrainian government and installed a Russian-hating one, Donbass seceded into two independent republics and formed armed forces to stop the murder of Donbas Russians by the Ukrainian nazi militias. Both Republics requested Putin to accept them back into Russia where they belong. But Putin refused. Instead he came up with the Minsk Agreement that would keep Donbas in Ukraine but provide Donbas with semi-autonomy so that courts and armed force could not be used against them. Washington’s puppet government in Kiev banned the use of the Russian language and was set on erasing Russian culture from Donbas. Putin got Kiev and the Donbas republics to sign the agreement and France and Germany agreed to enforce it. But as the German chancellor and French president later acknowledged, it was a trick to deceive Putin while the US built and equipped a large Ukrainian army to retake the Donbas republics.

Putin tried to avoid this looming conflict with diplomatic efforts in December 2021- February 2022, but was given the cold shoulder by Washington and NATO. It was not possible for Putin to stand aside while Donbas Russians were slaughtered, as the Arabs have stood aside while Palestinians are slaughtered. Putin was intentionally forced by Washington to intervene in Donbas. As I predicted, Washington and NATO described the limited intervention as “Putin’s invasion of Ukraine,” and became progressively more involved. The conflict dragged on, because having declared the intervention limited, the Kremlin left Kiev able to continue the war, thus playing into Western hands as the West gradually widened the war. Putin did not expect to be confronted by an insane West willing to risk its existence rather than lose its proxy war against Russia. Currently the West is desperately trying to keep the war alive with long range missiles to be used against Russian cities and by pulling off a color revolution in Georgia in order to open a second front against Russia.

No Russian leader can submit to missiles sent by the West into Russian territory. Putin and other members of the Russian leadership have made this clear. If this is the West’s intention, Putin said, Europe and the US can expect serious consequences. The consequences are that every Western country involved will find themselves attacked. Putin being a reasonable and intelligent man sees no point in war. He did his best to avoid intervening in Ukraine and once at war he has refused to widen the war to all of Ukraine. Putin’s reasonableness in the face of provocations encouraged more provocations, and now as I said would happen, his back is to the wall. The war that is about to happen is being forced on Russia by Washington. We are about to experience the self-suicide of the West over the borders of an artificial country of no consequence to the West. Indeed, no Western country will even defend its own borders. Faced with the outbreak of a devastating war, what does the insane West do? Does the West sit down with Putin and resolve the situation. No. The West announces its plans of how it is going to get US troops to the front lines to fight Russia.

Do you realize that our leaders have normalized the idea of war with Russia? Clearly our leaders do not understand what this means? Do you?

First time I’ve seen Putin address Russian casualties.

Russian Public Opinion Sharpens On End-of-War Objectives (Helmer)

A newly released national poll reveals that Russian public support for the Army and for President Vladimir Putin is growing. At the same time, the proportion of Russians in favour of expanded military operations is rising at the expense of those who favour negotiations. The outcomes for negotiations acceptable to the Russians who support them are rapidly shrinking, too. This Russian conviction is strengthening in the face of the battlefield casualty rate which, unusually, Putin acknowledged this week to be ten thousand a month. Putin told a press conference on June 5 : “our losses, especially as concerns irreparable losses, unfortunately, then they are several times less than on the Ukrainian side. If we talk about approximate irretrievable losses, then the ratio is the same: one to about five… According to our calculations, the Ukrainian army loses 50,000 people per month as sanitary and irretrievable losses both, although their irretrievable and sanitary losses are approximately 50/50.”

Since the Russian rate of casualty survival for troops at the front is substantially better than the Ukrainian rate because of superior evacuation, front-line and rear medical care, Putin’s numbers suggest that the Russian killed-in-action (KIA) number is at least 3,000 per month. According to a nationwide survey by face-to-face interview in Russian homes between May 23 and 29, the Levada Centre in Moscow, an independent polling organisation, reports: “Half of the respondents believe it is necessary to move on to peace negotiations — 43% are in favour of continuing military operations, their share has been growing in recent months. However, the majority is not ready to make concessions regarding Ukraine and this share is growing. Russians consider the exchange of prisoners of war and a ceasefire to be acceptable conditions for signing a peace agreement, while the return of new regions and Ukraine’s accession to NATO are completely unacceptable.

If there was an opportunity to go back in time and cancel the start of Special Military Operation, slightly more than a third of respondents would reverse this decision — their share has decreased slightly in recent months.” This also means that Ukrainian missile, artillery, and drone attacks on civilians, refinery and other targets on Russian territory are having no impact on the nationwide commitment to the war and its strategic objectives. On the contrary, threats by NATO leaders to intensify these attacks and extend their range into Russia are increasing public Russian support for lifting Kremlin restrictions on the General Staff’s operational plans for finishing the war at and over the Polish border. For the official interpretation of what Putin said at his press conference, RT, the state propaganda organ for non-Russian audiences, published “key takeaways”, omitting the casualty disclosures. RT had reported Putin’s remarks on the casualty rates shortly after he made them, with emphasis on the Ukrainian losses and with the claim that “without specifying the number of Russian casualties, Putin said the number of [Russian] irrecoverable losses was at least five times less than those incurred by Kiev’s forces.”

“Have you gone completely insane? Are you as thick as this table?”

‘Bulls**t’ – Putin On ‘Plans’ To Attack NATO (RT)

The idea that Moscow has some kind of plan to attack NATO is a stupid attempt to maintain the West’s global hegemony by fear, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said. Putin was asked about NATO’s preparations to defend from a Russian “invasion” at a meeting with the heads of major international news agencies on Wednesday, on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF). “Look, someone has imagined that Russia wants to attack NATO. Have you gone completely insane? Are you as thick as this table? Who came up with this nonsense, this bulls**t?” Putin said. The Russian president suggested that the “bulls**t” was in the service of deceiving the Western public, urging them to arm themselves and send more weapons to Ukraine.

“Why is this being done, really? To maintain their own position of greatness, that’s why. There’s nothing to these scary stories, intended for the townsfolk in Germany and France and elsewhere in Europe,” Putin explained. “In Ukraine, we’re just protecting ourselves.” “Don’t make up things and then form opinions about Russia on the basis of them,” he added. “You only hurt yourselves this way.” During the session, which lasted more than three hours, Putin repeatedly addressed the root causes of Russia’s intervention in Ukraine, from the 2014 US-backed coup to the atrocities of the Kiev government in the Donbass and the failed Minsk peace process that Western leaders have admitted to being a sham.

The Russian president argued that the US hasn’t poured billions of dollars in cash, weapons, ammunition and equipment into Ukraine because it loves Ukrainians, but because of the belief that this will further American “greatness and global leadership.” “Nobody in the US cares about Ukraine’s interests,” Putin told the agency heads. While Moscow has no intention of “invading” Europe, it will consider retaliating against the US and its allies for providing Kiev with long-range missiles by supplying adversaries of the West with similar weapons in “sensitive” areas, he added.

“..because we participate in all events that have peace on the agenda.”

Hungary Urges Immediate Ukraine Peace Talks (RT)

Peace talks must start right now to end the Ukraine conflict, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto told journalists on Thursday on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) in Russia. The minister is attending the economic forum to discuss energy cooperation between Hungary and Russia, among other things. Hungary differs from the majority of EU and NATO members in opposing the continued arming of Ukraine. Szijjarto said Budapest’s position is driven by the fact that as long as hostilities continue, the risk of a major escalation will grow “each day.” “Peace needs to be achieved as soon as possible. Peace talks need to start, and a ceasefire has to be achieved now,” he was quoted as saying.

”It is absolutely obvious that the war cannot be resolved with arms,” he added. “The sooner negotiations start, the fewer people will die.” Next week Switzerland is hosting an international conference that it organized on Kiev’s behalf, where the Ukrainian government will promote its so-called “peace formula” – which Moscow says amounts to a demand for capitulation. China has said it will not participate in the summit because Russia has been excluded at Kiev’s behest. Szijjarto said Hungary likewise considered this fact regrettable, but chose to attend “because we participate in all events that have peace on the agenda.” He will be representing Budapest in Switzerland, although he expects no breakthrough due to Russia’s absence.

The top Hungarian diplomat declined to comment on Moscow’s assertion that Vladimir Zelensky has usurped power in Ukraine since his presidential term expired last month. ”Without Russian energy, we will not be able to provide for the country,” he said. “This is not a question of politics or ideology. So we need to continue energy cooperation in Russia. And, frankly, I see no reason to do otherwise.” The EU declared decoupling from the Russian economy to be one of its priorities after Russia began its special military operation in 2022. Hungary argues the attempt to punish Moscow by replacing its natural gas with more expensive sources of energy has dealt a major blow to members of the bloc and thus was shortsighted.

“They’ve suffered enough that they’re looking for an inspiration and a model that works. And a partner in how to get out from under that jackboot.”

Russia Has Become ‘Economic Role Model’ to Rest of the World (Miles)

The emergence of the Russian Federation from a recent set of severe US-led sanctions largely unscathed, then, is seen as a landmark moment by Global South nations seeking to resist a tactic often employed by the West. Moscow has not only survived the economic aggression but has thrived, surpassing Germany and Japan to become the world’s fourth-largest economy, notes security analyst Mark Sleboda. The international relations expert joined Sputnik’s The Critical Hour program Wednesday to discuss why countries around the world increasingly see Russia as an economic model and partner. “I don’t think we’re quite at a multipolar world yet, but we definitely see it envisioned and it’s birth taking place, even if the US-led Western global hegemon is trying to strangle that birth and prevent it from taking place,” said Sleboda, agreeing with the premise of analysis on the website Orinoco Tribute that examined participation in this year’s St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

The article posits the creation of “new growth centers” as a building block for such an order, with Global South countries strengthening bilateral relations to build power independent from the Western-led economic system. The article notes efforts to strengthen ties in areas such as pharmaceuticals, energy production, education, security, and space programs. “Isolation” was “the buzz word of 2022,” Sleboda noted, with observers predicting Russia’s economic demise in the face of denunciations from the West over its special military operation in the Donbass. But “out of 192 countries, plus or minus, in the world, 136 of them are going to have participants at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum,” the analyst noted, “including several heads of state. “In terms of GDP adjusted for purchasing power parity, during this time period of the existential economic war of sanctions on Russia by the West, Russia’s economy has leapfrogged from sixth place to jump Germany for fifth place,” he added.

“And now, in recent months – the World Bank has announced the new numbers – Russia has jumped Japan as well to reach the fourth-largest economy in the world… despite the West’s best and most heated efforts to destroy Russia’s economy.” “Boom. That is the sound of the US-led Western global hegemony cracking. That is amazing,” the analyst added. “Everyone wants to know how did Russia become the Teflon Don of global geoeconomics,” Sleboda explained. “Because they don’t know when they might be put in the same position. Now there’s a train coming and Russia is directing that train.” The international relations expert noted that African countries, in particular, are seeking cooperation with Russia as they look to break away from patterns of dependency established after their independence from Western colonial rule in the 20th century.

“[Sergey Lavrov] is being welcomed by the Africans and there are a number of Africans that he is visiting who also have representatives, of course, at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum,” he reported. “And all of those countries right now are seeing the performance of Russian weapons on the battlefield against the vaunted wonder weapons of the West. And, let me tell you, there is a queue right now for when this special military operation ends.” “And that’s why Lavrov is being greeted as almost a conquering hero as a representative of the Russian government and the foreign minister of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Russia is an inspiration because the countries of Africa have long been very much suffering under the heel of US-led Western global hegemony… They’ve suffered enough that they’re looking for an inspiration and a model that works. And a partner in how to get out from under that jackboot.”

What the $320 million pier was always intended for.

US Uses Aid Pier to Roll Out New Military Tech for Testing in Gaza (Sp.)

New analysis by the Libertarian Institute takes a look at how the United States is unloading new anti-drone weapons via Gaza’s aid pier to test the technology for use in the Russo-Ukraine conflict. “The US has deployed a new combat vehicle to Gaza with the aim of field testing the weapon for use in Ukraine, as the Pentagon hopes it will help repel Russian drone attacks,” reports the Libertarian Institute via the newspaper The Telegraph. “The Defense Department stationed two Mobile-Low, Slow, Small-Unmanned Aircraft Integrated Defeat Systems (M-LIDS) in Gaza starting in May.” “When the US Army sailed some of its coastal landing ships to Gaza as part of the US military’s humanitarian flotilla, the ships carried – along with a floating pier for food aid – one of the initial M-LIDS vehicle sets,” the British media outlet noted.

“As the humanitarian pier took shape in early May, at least one M-LIDS vehicle rolled down the pier and took up station at the edge of the beach alongside a heavylift truck packing a radar-guided 20-millimeter auto-cannon – a land-based version of the US Navy’s main anti-missile gun.” The report confirmed speculation by observers that US President Joe Biden’s aid pier may serve a military purpose in addition to its purported humanitarian justification. Regis Tremblay, an American filmmaker living in Crimea, joined Sputnik’s The Critical Hour program Wednesday to offer insight on the development. “When we look at this, what we see is $320 million for the pier – one of the things which, of course, is falling apart, right?” noted host Garland Nixon. “They said it was $320 million for the pier, but buying weapons was part of the $320 million. So that’s the whole neoliberal fraud. Part of what we’re seeing here in the Ukraine conflict is Russia has nationalized a good part of their military industrial complex so they can make things that work, and they’re not really expensive to make.”

“They cost what they cost,” he continued. “We keep seeing with neoliberalism, with the US – whether it’s the F-35 or whatever, these boondoggles – it doesn’t work. It costs a fortune and a bunch of crooks fill their pockets – and the big guy always gets his 10%, of course. And that’s one of the reasons that the whole militarism can’t work, because it’s all just a self-serving racket.” Analysts have noted the rapid privatization of the US defense industry after World War II, with private contractors increasingly responsible for much of the country’s military production. Critics allege the dynamic has damaged the country’s military effectiveness, with significant waste built into the system. “I agree with you completely,” said Tremblay. “Most of the Russian military industrial complex is nationalized. They are able to produce weapons, missiles, artillery shells – you name it, whatever – for a fraction of the cost that it costs for the United States and their military industrial complex, which is bloated, which is overrun with cost overruns everywhere you look.” “And what Russia is spending on the same things, it’s just a fraction of the cost because they have nationalized their military industrial complex.”

“The defense is not asking the jury to consider the evidence. It is asking the jury to ignore it.”

Just Ask Mookie: Hunter Biden Has No Defense Other Than Nullification (Turley)

The day after he bought the gun, Hunter was texting a guy named “Mookie” to score drugs behind a minor league baseball stadium. Mookie appears to have come through for Hunter since the next day (two days after denying that he used drugs), Hunter allegedly texted Hallie Biden that he was “waiting for a dealer named Mookie.” Then, two days after the gun purchase, Hunter texted, “I was sleeping on a car smoking crack on 4th street and Rodney.” That corner appears less than a mile and half from the federal courthouse where Hunter is sitting. It is roughly five miles from the gun shop where he denied using drugs. Hallie will also testify. She was the widow of Hunter’s deceased brother and started an intimate relationship with Hunter after Beau’s death. She was also allegedly doing crack.

Yet, when Hallie saw the gun in the console of Hunter’s car, she had the presence of mind to realize he was an unstable addict. She took the gun and threw it into a dumpster behind a restaurant. The brutal start of the hearing raises the question — again — of why Hunter decided to go to trial. There is no viable defense. The most that the defense can come up with is a claim that someone else may have completed the form, or that he had a moment of sobriety before heading off to meet Mookie. In his book, Hunter describes an addiction that led him to smoke crack almost every 15 minutes. That would seem likely to come to mind when you are given a form asking “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?” Certainly his need for drugs was much on Hunter’s mind when he was texting Mookie.

Indeed, not long after the purchase, the Biden family held an intervention at their Delaware home to deal with Hunter’s raging addiction. These defenses are about as convincing as saying that your client got locked into the bank vault after losing his way to the restroom . . . hours after the bank closed. So why present unbelievable defenses in Wilmington? Because it is Wilmington. This is Biden’s hometown. The President maintains his residence in the city and remains the town’s favorite son. As if the jury needed any reminder, First Lady Jill Biden sitting behind Hunter brings home that this is a Biden trial in Bidentown. The combination of sympathy for a reformed addict and identification with the Bidens could be enough for a jury nullification strategy. The defense is not asking the jury to consider the evidence. It is asking the jury to ignore it.

Every juror appeared to confirm knowing someone with a drug addiction, including siblings or other relatives. Given that panel, Hunter could well take the stand to describe his addiction and lack of clarity of thought. Hunter’s book offers moving descriptions of his struggle with addiction and could sway some jurors, especially given the relatively minor criminal charges. Wilmington for Biden is the opposite of Manhattan for Trump. This is a town that overwhelmingly voted for Biden in 2016 and 2020. It is a great jury pool for the defense. Viewed through a nullification defense, it does not matter how absurd the actual defense is in the case. It is merely a pretense. Whether it is sympathy for a drug addict or a Biden, the defense clearly hopes that the jury will look beyond the evidence and the crime in this case.

“Now, Garland has what appears flagrant perjurious statements made by the President’s son and brother..“

AG Garland Faces a Clear Choice Between Principle and Politics (Turley)

For each of us, there often comes a moment when our principles are put to an undeniable and unavoidable test. It may be as simple as cheating on a test, shoplifting a product, or admitting to a wrong. It is natural to want to avoid such moments, particularly when we cannot even admit to ourselves that we may not be the person we have long claimed. For Attorney General Merrick Garland, that moment of truth has finally arrived. Garland has long maintained that he is an apolitical attorney general who does not even consider the political consequences of his actions. Over the last three years, some of us have questioned that commitment in a series of actions or, more importantly, non-actions.

Yet, Garland has always been able to evade responsibility by shifting decision-making to others or claiming a lack of knowledge. Yesterday, Garland ran out of room to maneuver when three House committees (Oversight, Judiciary, and Ways and Means) sent him formal referrals for the perjury prosecution of Hunter Biden and his uncle, James Biden. The evidence of false answers to Congress is overwhelming and Garland’s department has prosecuted Trump associates and others with far less in past cases, including the prosecution of former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Here is the Committee’s summary of the allegations, which I also previously discussed in an column:

“During his deposition, Hunter Biden made false statements about holding a position at Rosemont Seneca Bohai (RSB), a corporate entity that received millions of dollars from foreign individuals and entities who met with then-Vice President Biden before and after transmitting money to the RSB account that then transferred funds to Hunter Biden. After deposing Hunter Biden, the Committees obtained documents showing Hunter Biden represented that he was the corporate secretary of RSB. Additionally, Hunter Biden during his testimony relayed an entirely fictitious account about threatening text messages he sent to his Chinese business partner while invoking his father’s presence with him as he wrote the messages. Hunter Biden testified he had transmitted this threat to an unrelated individual with the same surname.

However, documents released by the Committee on Ways and Means demonstrate conclusively that Hunter Biden made this threat to the intended individual, and bank records prove Hunter Biden’s Chinese business partners wired millions of dollars to his company after his threat. A portion of the proceeds has been traced to Joe Biden’s bank account. During James Biden’s transcribed interview, he stated that Joe Biden did not meet with Tony Bobulinski, a business associate of James and Hunter Biden, in 2017 while pursuing a deal with a Chinese entity, CEFC China Energy. His statements were contradicted not only by Mr. Bobulinski, but Hunter Biden. Mr. Bobulinski also produced text messages that establish the events leading up to and immediately following his meeting with Joe Biden on May 2, 2017.”

These are straight-forward questions and answers. More importantly, both men knew and prepared for these questions. They were widely discussed before their testimony. They appear to have knowingly lied. The question is what Garland is now prepared to do about it. For Garland, a bill has come due. I supported his appointment as Attorney General because I respected his integrity and intellect as a federal judge. I believed his claim that he could not allow political considerations to cloud his judgment. I grew more critical as I saw Garland struggling to avoid decisions that would work against President Biden or his family.

Now, Garland has what appears flagrant perjurious statements made by the President’s son and brother. Given the fact that these were anticipated questions, the false answers appear premeditated and egregious. Hunter and Jim Biden displayed a sense of impunity in denying facts that the committees (and many commentators) believe are well established on the available evidence. Those facts were highly embarrassing to the Biden family and they allegedly chose to lie rather than admit to them. The fact that such alleged false statements occurred in the midst of an impeachment investigation only magnifies the concerns. This was an effort to establish the President’s knowledge of a massive corrupt influence peddling operation maintained by his family. The gun charge in Delaware is a relatively minor criminal allegation. This is far more serious and could impose far greater punishment for the President’s son.

” Washington is not worthy of your defense. Washington is so much against you that Washington is about to provoke Russia into bringing about your destruction..”

Patriotism Has Destroyed America (Paul Craig Roberts)

First, let’s understand who we are talking about. Not the liberals, not the leftwing, not the woke. These are the creatures who spend their time denouncing America. We are talking about conservatives. They are the patriots. I am not saying that there is anything wrong with patriotism. It is a good thing when it is not blinding. But patriotism can be very blinding.

I could write a book about this, but who would read it? So I will go straight to the basic point. Conservatives are not blind to the fact that much is wrong, but who do they blame? They blame foreign “enemies”–Russians, Chinese, Muslim terrorists, Iranians, Palestinians. The fault is never in their own government. When you tell them it is, they get defensive, angry, and call you a “commie who hates America.” Their patriotism confuses country (that is, the Constitution) with the government, and they defend the government that is the cause of the problems. Consequently, conservatives do not understand Washington’s hand in all of the crises that we currently face and, therefore, conservatives are impotent and can do nothing to avoid the crises. Instead, they project the blame externally as the propaganda does. Their patriotism makes them victims of propaganda serving agendas of which they are unaware.

Try telling a conservative that Russia didn’t invade Ukraine, but merely intervened in Donbas, Russian Ukraine, to protect the Russians there from being massacred by a Ukrainian army trained and equipped by Washington. This is an absolute fact. One that is child’s play to document and prove beyond every doubt. But if you tell an American conservative this, you will be regarded as a traitor of your country in service to Russia. If you tell a conservative that the real sources of America’s economic trouble is not China, but Washington, Wall Street, and the Federal Reserve, He will wonder how much China is paying you to help China take over America. For conservatives, patriotism requires you to believe the government’s narrative. If you don’t, you are suspect. Consequently, conservatives find themselves going along with the developing American Police State as it “protects” them by dismantling the Constitution that actually does protect them.

[..] American patriots have been indoctrinated, even brainwashed, to see Russia as a deadly enemy. This goes back to the Cold War with the Soviet Union. The Cold War served, as President Eisenhower reminded us in his farewell speech, to institutionalize a powerful military/security complex that had a massive vested interest in Russia as an adversary. All sorts of power and profit flowed from having the Russian (Soviet at that time) enemy.The CIA controls the narrative with “leaks” to the compliant, unquestioning media. Putin was forced to send troops into Donbas, formerly a Russian province, to protect Russians from slaughter by a Ukrainian army raised by Washington. Instantly in the Western whore media, this became a “Russian invasion of Ukraine.” The narrative quickly coalesced. Ukraine had to be defended or Europe would be next.

Putin misjudged his enemy, thinking the West more capable of reason than it is. Putin did not realize that his slow process of evicting Ukrainian troops from Russian Donbas would provide time for the West to get involved and to widen the conflict, which has now occurred. Now Russia is faced with long range missiles fired by US and NATO operators deep into Russia and with NATO troops occupying the large areas of Ukraine where there is no Russian presence. At a recent press conference in Tashkent, Putin advised Europe to think, because it was putting its continued existence in question. It only requires a tiny percentage of Russia’s nuclear weapons to wipe Europe and the UK off the face of the earth.

The morons in Washington, the people whose narratives are defended by patriots, were also told that American military inferiority and nuclear inferiority also means that with minimum expenditure of resources Russia can disappear America. What was the response? Non-reporting. Instead, Putin’s straight talk was turned into Russian threats and propaganda. In other words, when confronted with a direct warning, Washington and the whore media turned a deaf ear. Dear conservative American, Washington is not worthy of your defense. Washington is so much against you that Washington is about to provoke Russia into bringing about your destruction. Sometimes foreign governments and foreign media tell you more truth than your own government and media. Learn to listen and to think. Your very survival depends upon it.

“Fallen On Her Fani”: Trump Lawyer Gloats After Georgia Case Collapses (ZH)

Donald Trump’s lawyer Alina Habba took a victory lap after a Georgia appeals court halted DA Fani Willis’ election interference case against the former president. “She’s fallen on her fanny since the very beginning,” Habba told Newsmax’s Carl Higbie. “This has completely been a disaster. It was a fake case to start with, her arrogance, her demeanor has been incredibly telling.” On Wednesday, the Georgia Court of Appeals halted the case while it reviews Judge Scott McAfee’s ruling allowing Willis to remain on the case amid several scandals. The ruling prevents McAfee – who donated to Fani Willis – from moving forward with pretrial motions he had planned while the appeal was pending. While the case was unlikely to go forward before the November US election, this was the final nail in the coffin. On Monday, the appeals court docketed appeals filed by Trump and eight other defendants. Oral arguments are tentatively scheduled for Oct. 4, after which the court will have until mid-March to rule.

The losing side can then appeal to the Georgia Supreme Court. “The Georgia Court of Appeals has properly stayed all proceedings against President Trump in the trial court pending its decision on our interlocutory appeal which argues the case should be dismissed and Fulton County DA Willis should be disqualified for her misconduct,” said Trump attorney Steve Sadow in a statement. Trump and 18 other defendants were indicted last August on allegations that they participated in a scheme to illegally overturn the 2020 presidential election. The case was upended when one of the defendants revealed that Willis had paid over $600,000 to her lover – who was obviously prosecuting more than just the case on lavish, (effectively) taxpayer-funded trips that Willis claims she paid back in cash.

“Biden is “not at the top of his game” and “was never the brightest bulb” among American politicians – even when he was younger.”

Biden Could Cause Nuclear War – Trump (RT)

US President Joe Biden may end up destroying the world in a nuclear conflict, his election rival Donald Trump has claimed. Speaking to Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday, the former president warned that “we have a chance of going into World War III because of our leader.” The remark came after Hannity suggested that Biden was in a state of mental decline, showing several clips of the president appearing distracted or fumbling his words during public appearances. Hannity and Trump were discussing a report published in the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday, which said the incumbent was showing “signs of slipping” behind closed doors. Trump suggested that, unlike the leaders of Russia, China and North Korea, Biden is “not at the top of his game” and “was never the brightest bulb” among American politicians – even when he was younger.

It is currently the “most dangerous time in the history of our country,” he warned, citing the destructive potential of nuclear weapons. In the event of a nuclear exchange, “nothing will matter because practically nothing will be here anymore,” he warned. “This is obliteration. Maybe world obliteration. And we have a man that is incapable of even discussing it.” Trump pointed to the Ukraine conflict as a major source of danger. Russian President Vladimir Putin “is talking about nuclear weapons,” he said. The Biden administration has recently granted Kiev permission to strike targets outside of what Washington recognizes as Ukrainian territory with US-donated weapons.

When asked on Wednesday how he would react to possible attacks deep inside Russia using Western arms, Putin said Moscow may “supply our weapons of the same class to parts of the world, where strikes would be delivered against sensitive assets of the nations that act like that against Russia.” The US and its allies are getting “directly involved in the war against us,” he added, and this path of escalation “leads to very serious problems.” Asked directly whether Moscow would consider using nuclear weapons, Putin said he’d rather stay clear “not only from the use, but even from the threat of use” of such arms. However, he warned people in the West not to delude themselves that such a scenario was impossible.

“Maher recently described Biden as “cadaver-like,” and that “he should get out, because he’s just lost the faith (of) people.”

Bill Maher: Biden “Is Going To F***ing Lose” (MN)

Bill Maher warned his leftist audience this week that Donald Trump is going to beat an ailing Joe Biden in the November election. During a podcast interview with Kara Swisher, Maher stated “I would vote for [Biden’s] head in a jar of blue liquid over Donald Trump, but that doesn’t mean that I’m — first of all, I think it’s a moot point at this point. He’s going to fucking lose.” Maher cited Biden’s age and the efforts his campaign are making to pretend that isn’t the case. Maher added that too many Democrats are ignoring concerns about the physical and mental fitness of now 81-year-old Biden.

Swisher refused to accept Maher’s assertion, claiming that a “silent majority” will vote for Biden. “We don’t want chaos again,” she said. Maher responded, “Do I think that’s absolutely possible, what you described? Yes. Or it could not be, and I can’t tell the difference.” “The shy Trump voter is the one who is going to vote for Trump but doesn’t want you to know it because it’s a little déclassé,” he added. Maher’s comments come as a Wall Street Journal report citing several Democrats and Republicans claims Biden is showing signs of severe cognitive decline behind the scenes as well as in public.

The report notes that over 45 lawmakers and staffers from both sides of the aisle were interviewed and described Biden as “not the same person” as he was even four years ago. Maher recently described Biden as “cadaver-like,” and that “he should get out, because he’s just lost the faith (of) people.” The ‘Real Time’ host also stated that many leftist ideas are “stupid,” and that is stoking even more division which could lead to a civil war with “MAGA nation” types if jailing Trump is really on the table.

“Putin was an undercover Soviet KGB agent in Leningrad in the early 1980s. He turned 30 in 1982 and worked in East Germany during the latter half of the decade..”

Biden Claims He Knew Putin in 1980s (RT)

US President Joe Biden has made an apparent mental stumble in trying to disparage Vladimir Putin, saying he has known the Russian leader for more than four decades and has been concerned about him all that time because he’s “not a decent man.” Biden’s latest gaffe came in an ABC News interview on Thursday in Normandy, France, where he was attending a ceremony commemorating the 80th anniversary of D-Day. Asked about President Putin, he said, “I’ve known him for 40 years. He’s concerned me for 40 years. He’s not a decent man. He’s a dictator, and he’s struggling to make sure he holds his country together while still keeping this assault going [in Ukraine].” The comment drew online ridicule, as observers pointed out that Putin was an undercover Soviet KGB agent in Leningrad in the early 1980s.

He turned 30 in 1982 and worked in East Germany during the latter half of the decade. He didn’t become an internationally known public figure until 1999, after his surprise appointment as acting prime minister. “Either Biden is lying, or he is admitting he was in contact with a KGB agent since 1984, or Biden’s brain is so cooked that he doesn’t know what on earth he is talking about,” former US Senate staffer Steve Guest said. The 81-year-old Biden, who is ten years older than Putin, was a US senator from 1973 until he took office as vice president in 2009. He reportedly met Putin, then Russia’s prime minister, for the first time in March 2011. Biden has repeatedly insulted Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping, and other world leaders. For instance, he called Putin a “crazy SOB” in February, and he claimed last year that China was run by “bad folks.” The Kremlin has denounced such attacks as “shameful.”

Polls have shown that most Americans believe Biden is mentally unfit to serve as president. A Wall Street Journal report earlier this week claimed that beyond his frequent mental gaffes in public, Biden was showing “signs of slipping” in closed-door meetings with US lawmakers. The article was based on interviews with 45 people, including Republicans and Democrats, who had spent time with the president in recent months. US Representative Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), who served as White House physician under Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, told Fox News that the media report confirmed what he has been saying about Biden for years. “He’s got significant issues,” the congressman said. “He shouldn’t have the job. You know, it’s a national security issue for us.”

No Secret Service and no gun.

New York Police Set To Revoke Trump’s Gun License – CNN (RT)

The New York City Police Department (NYPD) is set to revoke Donald Trump’s license to carry a concealed gun after the former US president was found guilty on 34 felony charges last week, CNN has reported, citing a senior police official. Trump obtained a concealed carry permit in New York a decade ago and had three pistols registered under it, the broadcaster said on Wednesday. According to the police official, the permit was “quietly” suspended on April 1, 2023, following the former president’s indictment on criminal charges. A day before, Trump handed two of his guns over to the NYPD, while his third pistol “was lawfully moved to Florida,” he said. Under federal and state law in both New York and Florida, it is illegal for people with felony convictions to possess firearms.

It is unclear if the presumptive Republican presidential nominee still owns a gun in Florida. The NYPD’s Legal Bureau will complete an investigation into Trump’s possession of the third pistol “that will likely lead to revocation of his license,” the source claimed. The former president would still have the right to legally challenge any revocation. In a statement issued after the report by CNN, Trump’s campaign spokesman, Steven Cheung, claimed that “[US President Joe] Biden’s cronies in the Democrat Party are panicked and have chosen to continue to abuse our once great justice system to pursue their number one political opponent and interfere in the coming election.”

Last Friday, Trump was found guilty of 34 counts of falsifying business records, becoming the first US president to ever be convicted of a felony. The trial was related to supposed ‘hush money’ payments he made to porn actress Stormy Daniels in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, and the alleged altering of paperwork to conceal them. The 77-year-old has denied the accusations, branding the case a politically motivated “witch hunt,” and dismissing the trial as “rigged” and “disgraceful.” The former president’s sentencing has been scheduled for July 11. Trump has claimed he is “OK” with serving potential jail time or being placed under house arrest. He has insisted that the “real verdict” will be delivered by the public in the presidential election on November 5.

    want to create a list of criminals? Start with a list of US Secretaries of State.

    why does Comer keep pretending $250,000.00 is a large sum of money? Biden is a chump and if that is it, that is chump change.

    When it comes to nuclear war, the only question I wonder about is how well the USA and Russia have managed to develop anti-nuclear defense systems that can defend their continents. The best defence systems are near the source, as near the source the rockets are in one piece, the warheads have not separated from the main rocket, so it is one target, not many targets. Consequently, I am led to assume that the majority of funding of defensive systems will be submarine based or the standard antimissile systems near the borders of Russia; putting a Kinshal hypersonic missile on a submarine so that it can take out one or more US missiles launched from the USA.

    The USA will also not have been standing still, but by the looks of their kinetic weapons they are well behind the Russians, so maybe they have something else up their sleeves, something they can use in Europe or at sea.

    Russians are ingenious and obviously very capable in the weapons field. I wonder how confident they are that they can wipe out the majority of a first strike from the USA or even from Europe.

    From Andrei Martyanov

    “Putin stated that Russia will supply weapons to West’s enemies.

    In the end, two can play the game.

    So, what can those enemies possibly be?

    As you might expect, Houthis may get, “suddenly”, anti-shipping missiles which will be suspiciously similar to such systems as P-800 Onyx.

    Or “freedom fighters” elsewhere, including Europe?


    Russian ships visiting Cuba and Venezuela

    These are the biggest guns in cruise missile business in the world.

    Gorshkov carries 32 Onyx, Zircon, Kalibrs and Otvet.

    These are the most advanced and deadly cruise missiles in history, with a serious combat pedigree.

    Kazan, which is Yasen-class SSGN submarine also carries 32 VLS and, in addition, has 10 torpedo tubes which can shoot not just torpedoes.

    Admiral Gorshkov will be involved–this means 3M22 Zircon carrier and this is just polite demonstration of flag.

    Just to remind everyone:

    The range of 3M22 Zircon is 1,500 km

    The range of 3M14 is 2,500 km

    These distances are from CUBA

    During the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Empire of Lies got it’s panties in a bunch because of slow land based nuclear missiles based on the ground.

    The current Russian hypersonic cruise missiles have a much faster speed and range and will be sitting in Cuban harbors

    Canada first to cut rates; Europe folds. What a shock: a war takes Europe going under into financial collapse hidden by Europe direct attacks on Russia proper. Golly, Wot a Shock! Who could see that coming? (Am I 18 months into saying this yet?)

    Now Europe I guess did not ACTUALLY cut rates yet, but the markets seem to be indicating Legarde has folded. “They” are still reporting that Powell is about to cut rates today (36 months in a row?) and Powell keeps coming out saying he isn’t. So…what the what are you reporting again? “How many times do you beat your wife, Jerome?” Aha! He DENIED it! A denial is the same as an admittal, in #OppositeLand we reside.

    No. I think Jim Grant said “Higher for longer”. Why? Because they can. Europe cannot. The U.S. can defend the Dollar, or…if they don’t defend the US$, the Fed ceases to exist. Hmmm, what will the HEAD of the Fed, run by NY, do? Such a mystery. Nope, I’m sure they’ll all die to save American Main Street, bail out Europe, and collapse Congress and their borrowing. Yup, that’s what they’ll do.

    Noting, gold at $2380. Remember it only passed $2,000 when I mentioned it. That’s a pretty big jump, and nada, no comments, no excitement, zip. The whole area just gained 30% or more, they’re not excited or talking, nothing. Translation: that’s not a bubble.

    Nor me either, I’m not going to mention it, nor especially silver with remains half price of 50 years ago. Can you think of anything else in that category?

    Bill Barr. On Justice. On not prosecuting the law when there are crimes, such that it is not fair and partisan. Really? Maybe tips on child care from Charlie Manson?

    The President’s son & brother peddled lies to protect the Big Guy, Joe Biden.”

    Wow, no kidding? Be still my heart. Revelation. Bombshell, walls are closing in.

    Speaking of that, they are cautiously and methodically setting the staging for his removal, having no urgency whatsoever, not related or referring to any of your cases because he will never be charged, harassed, or removed.

    “Tucker Carlson Reveals That The Director Of The CIA Threatened Him”

    I’d be shocked if they hadn’t, so the story here is that Tucker is telling you. And not the previous 500 times it happened. Also in the news: then why haven’t they don’t anything to him? Do they have no power? They feel they’re still in control of the “Script”, the Narrative? Tucker didn’t stop so what gives?

    “the west under the Hegemon is now obsessed with creating “systemic wounds” capable of cyclical destruction. To open these “wounds,” there are two main procedures: war and pandemics.”

    Why? Who would do this? Doesn’t it seem that it’s not any standard human culture where mothers raise their children, but has to be essentially an Un-Human one, hiding behind them? And this pops up, will have commandeered a Ship of State one after the other, rotating to new Ships of State and commandeering them each in turn? So they are clearly a behind-the-behind, not any of the cultures we see, but the ministers whispering in their ears.

    Now, as I also point out sometimes, once they’ve run that new Stolen Ship into aground because they don’t know how/don’t care to do general maintenance, it has holes everywhere and is sinking, they then become “League of Shadows” Raz al-goul, and specifically target that culture and state for collapse and genocide. As right now.

    Now if they have ANY part of that culture, they can’t do that, because they’ll go down with them. That means they can only be a culture, a subset, NOT part of these visible cultures. So we can’t see the alien insect yet but we CAN see their life-cycle: at this point in their pupation, they make a huge demonstration like a phoenix and like a parasite, burn their host in flashy flames so they can escape in the confusion.

    Again, IF you are Western culture, have any support or truck with the “West”, are allied or supported by them in any way, you cannot obviously sink the ship you are standing on. That would be counterproductive and you would die too. But you CAN, like the Joker, have each criminal you’ve vetted and hired shoot the criminal behind them and drive away in the school bus with no witnesses.

    So Pepe here is also helping them get away, calling them “The Rot of Western Capitalist Pig-Dogs” and such. Although HE is Western. It’s a very good question WHY “The West” can suddenly, out of nowhere, go nuts, and do these things. Doesn’t anybody really want to ask and know? Because when you look it’s very direct to conclude there is a parasite-host involved. That parasite hides inside the skin-suit of another, other cultures, like the mind-control aliens of “Stargate” and “Star Trek”.

    If you just get off accusing your neighbor, who is what is known as a “Patsy”, he’s not in charge of anything, he’s not “The Patriarchy”, everyone’s looking around at the HUMANS to see WHO is doing this. It’s not Hispanic Migrants, you idiots, it’s not the Blacks. It’s not women, nor city people. They’re all poor saps getting raped just like you are, obviously. It’s not even Harvard Trust Fund kids, obviously, although they should be smart enough to know better. They’re all abused victims too. Meet and ask them, like Naomi Wolf, they’re chosen because of their susceptibility to believing mind control, and being obedient idiots. But that’s everyone.

    No, not everyone. We’re well aware in Hierarchical structures, each CEO of interlocking boards is like 1 : 200,000 of their employees. That’s very, very few people. You may not have met one and probably haven’t. I’m just saying, you’re not going to find them in “Minority” groups because even the smallest such group is far, far too large.

    Put it this way: there’s one Joker per Gotham of 10 million people? And even that’s almost one too many? There may be other deranged villains he uses, like in movie lore, the Scarecrow, who love killing people to find out what happens, but only one Joker. So each minority group is looking around at the faces of the people around them, looking for this guy. Divide and conquer. The odds you’ve met Jack Napier or Kaiser Soze is zero. They’re going to be on a gated private island somewhere. You can’t point to them. How would you suspect them in our Agatha Christie crime? The whole book is written, leaving out someone jumped in the window, killed the butler, and left. Everyone else in the house is a suspect when it’s an outside crime. Duh. Did you see that, Sherlock, the thing you didn’t think of?

    Pepe is helping when he piles on “The West” or “Capitalism” or something, neatly making it OUR guilt, OUR fault, narcissistically abusering that WE actually crashed the car that we never drove, sorry honey. This Collective Guilt is a wonderful control mechanism used expressly on the Germans right now. They THINK they are responsible … for crimes they’ve never seen? Their GRANDPARENTS’ crimes? Like how long does this go on? Crimes of 3 generations, 30, 300? Homework: exploration of the Catholic Church.

    Here’s a clue you Pr—-ks, I am only responsible for MY crimes, and MY actions, GFY. Now you all here say it’s “The Americans” fault, or some such, therefore WE should lie down, give up, and hand it over, let you abuse us non-stop and destroy our country and my kids specifically because we suck in some unalleged, undefined way. Nope. You can GFY too. WHICH Americans. If you have a SPECIFIC crime, like Dick Cheney and Obama, I’m happy to follow it down to the full extent of the law, but I did not participate in their crimes, I opposed them. Opposing ≠ Supporting last I checked, they are #OPPOSITES. So I ain’t doin’ nothing. I’m taking no original sin, not for the garden, not for the crucifixion, and not for Carbon.

    It’s only by doing this we can think straight and stop looking at each other and go after the PARASITE CEO(s) at the top which are pretty easily discovered if you give me enough subpoenas. But it ain’t Jimmy the Greek peddling weed in a $2 storefront, duh, like everyone you and I meet, duh.

    So that’s what Pepe is missing when he says “The West”. All America is fighting this, the problem being we don’t know WHO to fight, or how. That’s this week’s quote on all governments are an Organized minority running roughshod over a DIS-organized majority. That’s why LYING is so crucial, or we would know who to fight accurately, and crush them in McDonald’s wrappers in like 4 hours. And that why blaming the WRONG people and cultures, countries, is so crucial to the Parasite’s survival. So crucial that they most very carefully arrange it beforehand, and lose that culture like a limb on a salamander when escaping.

    In rough, Pepe is wrong, being a “Western” guy: is it “Western” culture to be against all rule of law and all the enlightenment? Uh, no, that would be the #Opposite of what we call “Western” culture from the Greeks on, and all the elkskin-wearing tribes in al Europe too, by the way. It’s against EVERYBODY. It’s not supported in Chinese, African, or Eskimo cultures either. NO human acts this way. It takes a lot of tireless work and effort to arrange it, to mind-control it in with endless lies.

    So who is the Liar?

    So to “Save the West” is easy: we do what WE, the West, do. We have hard work, rule of law, and human rights and values. Like always. Don’t say we should discard our culture or we’ll be homeless and more open to abuse and manipulation than ever. Duh. I ain’t giving up this territory. Make me.

    “supporting its [military] bases, but this contradicts the interests of the American people.”

    Yes, they MIGHT fight, say Germany or Osaka, but they have to fight themselves, us, working Americans at home MORE. We are against all this, but atm there’s no way to stop it without a Civil War. We’ve tried. Or have you never heard of J6 and that some idiotic percentage of all “resistance” is FBI, including Tarrio, head of Proud Boys and 13 of 15 guys in Michigan. THEY are the entire “resistance”, they are “Goldberg” because THEY have unlimited money. It’s been a running gag since the 70s there were more FBI than KKK at every meeting, which I think you could easily prove from their actions. After a while, we say “What’s the point?” I’ll get up when we discover a tactic that gets adequate leverage.

    No? Follow the arc of “Occupy Wall Street”, perfect test case. Diverting good intent into pure nonsense, keeping the parasite intact. Wot a coincidence, I’m sure that happened all organically with no outside help.

    “The West announces its plans of how it is going to get US troops to the front lines to fight Russia.”

    Use your head, Paul, WHO in “The West”. This is interminably sloppy thinking. It will get us all killed, it’s like being in the Black Forest and saying the Krauts are “over there”. Where EXACTLY? I’m not storming no bunkers until I know exactly where, not like, “why don’t you wander north until you find a bullet”. We need to know SPECIFICALLY. Who. Who in the West wants this? Because The whole Right doesn’t want it, and the whole Left is anti-war. Yet – Magic!! — all their leaders somehow want the #Opposite and never get voted out. No questions because each PCR says “They”, “We” want it. We don’t. So explain? Gee, maybe there are hidden felonies somewhere that explain all this dark matter?

    “Do you realize that our leaders have normalized the idea of war with Russia? Clearly our leaders do not understand what this means? Do you?”

    Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy.

    “Have you gone completely insane? Are you as thick as this table? Who came up with this nonsense, this bulls**t?”

    The Parasite is skin-suiting us to behave in a certain way that’s always worked to cause the conflagration they escape in. However, Russia is not accommodating them, so they have to try harder. Now that’s not to say Russia won’t – and that would be a real win for them – but not yet, and it’s exposing and endangering them. If you’re attacked, you’re suppose to say “You impune my honoh, suh” and jump right in. “Let’s you and him fight”. Like WWI. Each day he doesn’t attack, the West sees how insane they look and the people start looking around saying “WTF is this coming from?” Because it’s not from Us the People, in America nor France.

    If it goes on long enough, there’s so much heat and light on the leaders that they have to be rotated out by the parasite, like Ardern, May, Johnson, Sarkozy, Hollande, Draghi, and a hundred more stiff tools. That baffles their plans, and if it goes on long enough they can lose actual control. I encourage it.

    “an inspiration and a model that works. And a partner in how to get out from under that jackboot.”

    WHOSE Jackboot? Where is the money flowing, or more importantly, the Control? If there is a Jackboot, there is a Jackboot-er. “Da Cops” seem to be more a victim than even I am, so would you like to try again?

    “Russia has jumped Japan as well to reach the fourth-largest economy in the world…”

    If they’re at $9T they are already bigger than we are. One, they only have 150M people, so by % they are wealthier. Two, third to half of all US GDP is fake bond-kiting and make-work preventions of health care in the insurance industry who all live in a circle-jerk R.E. bubble. More critically, they have a functioning economy; we both have factories and oil wells, but ours are discoordinated and in disarray the pieces aren’t coherent in action or location. We can fix all that, but it takes some 10 years of hard effort. Russia can mine ore, smelt it into steel, make shells, ship them on rail with diesel NOW. In contrast, Biden is tireless is stopping all oil, all rail, all power and leaving the U.S. defenseless. WHY? That doesn’t sound like a smart Mafia Don, Oligarch, corporation, or even parasite…unless they PLAN it and have an escape.

    “What the $320 million pier was always intended for.”

    THEY WERE TOLD it would be destroyed in a week. Ocean and current experts were hired and told them. They built it anyway and it sank into the swamp because the POINT was to fool Leftist idiots back home they were “Helping” Gaza and not genociding, when obviously YOU OPEN THE GATES for the existing trucks. They are CLEARLY genociding. The ludicrous idea you WOULD build a pier only proves that. It proves your limitless support for the Death Cult.

    Obviously all these plans have many backers or you couldn’t get political support for them, and they allied with the “We’ll also sell weapons that kill more unarmed goatherders” party, which is quite large and well funded in/by Congress. With my stolen money they’ll shoot me if I resist for.

    Mr. Putin’s perspective that all of the talk of nuclear weapons is for the western proles is logical. A series of EMP blasts at geosynchronous orbits combined with a few seabed cable cuts would make the current version of the US unrecognizable. SWIFT that.

    … reversing the facts./ denunciations

    It is the West that is confronting Russia in Ukraine, and it is the Western leaders who are preparing their publics for war with Russia.

    Putin repeatedly addressed the root causes of Russia’s intervention in Ukraine, from the 2014 US-backed coup to the atrocities of the Kiev government in the Donbass and the failed Minsk peace process that Western leaders have admitted to being a sham.

    The Russian president argued that the US hasn’t poured billions of dollars in cash, weapons, ammunition and equipment into Ukraine because it loves Ukrainians, but because of the belief that this will further American “greatness and global leadership.” “
    Nobody in the US cares about Ukraine’s interests,”
    Putin told the agency heads.
    While Moscow has no intention of “invading” Europe, it will consider retaliating against the US and its allies for providing Kiev with long-range missiles by supplying adversaries of the West with similar weapons in “sensitive” areas, he added.

    I imagine for any “content creator,” be it musician, artist, poet, writer, vlogger, etc, IF they have ever shown any dislike for The Blob, there is a dilemma: Attempt to keep a separate apolitical persona-as-content-creator or just let it all hang out. OR go full-bore cultural-political on the assumption that The Blob will not be reasonable, nuanced.

    Like hey, I have personal opinions but my artistic output is not political. But then, you can be targeted by The Blob for being a Normal Guy. And during the notapandemic, they made my totally apolitical job political and fired me via a purity test. I was just working hard minding my own business.

    So it seems like you’d need 1 or more firewalled artist-personas. But how connected is the blob? We know people get doxxed, swatted, and cancelled. Do various data-scrapers feed into cancellers? Why not, look at what these corporations are doing, Microsoft for instance.

    On Benjamin Boyce’s youtube channel, there was a long form interview of a leftist-liberal who was clearly an ally and not an enemy. He went to some conference and ended up in the same picture as some actual nazi-ish actual far right extremist guy — not talking with him, not shaking hands with him, just in the same frame, in a picture someone took.

    He lost his job and his rented HOME. They doxxed him and then an endless horde of people harassed his employer and landlord about how he was a far right bigot until he ended up living in his car — and he was totally USEFUL in every way to the side that was doxxing him! All that happened was he ended up in this same picture — as if AI was in control of targeting and target-queueing with no nuanced human decision making in the chain.

    And if you have immutable characteristics – such as white male or white female or straight – then you might be made political anyway. Your identity is “racist” or “bigot” as defined by others based on appearance, no matter what you believe or do or do not do. Who knows what NGOs or even NSA like assets are being used to evaluate cultural activity and target selection/prioritization. And now you’ve got Windows and Adobe for instance saying they will have access to all your private data IE all your work even before you publish it. Your work could be pre-selected for targeting while you are still working on your 2nd draft.

    I’m on record somewhere as a notanotavaxer. Just how MUCH has it influenced my job search even with employers not overtly stating there is a notavax requirement? Or is there some general score to which notanotavaxing would be merely a contributor? What can I do to atone? Start joining woke organizations, campaign for the democrat party, declare myself to be bisexual or trans? Does ANYTHING change my score/profile? How do I know how to fix it, how to avoid making it worse, how to know when the rules changed and a thing that was ok before is no longer ok?

    So fuck it then, be overtly political because what’s the difference, right? Only limiting factor would be how much of a mixture of politics-culture-art you personally prefer or perhaps what audience you’re going for – normies might need a different mix for instance. How overt or subtle you wish to be, but screw “chilling effect” and restraint because there’s no way to know the rules, there’s no way to get back into compliance, no way to be aware of rules-updates, no way to use a time machine to go back and make previously ok things that are now not-ok disappear.

    The world looks different depending on how you look at it, and what it looks like to YOU, personally, determines how you then do something (or nothing) about it.

    From this very simple , yet fundamentally profound, fact can be extrapolated another fact that can’t be overstated either. Specifically, the beliefs and state of mind of a person can be very VERY accurately assessed from observing what they DO, because action reveals belief and beliefs reveal both how and WHAT you see when looking at (or ignoring!) the world around you.

    So no, I cannot read someone else’s mind. But I can definitely observe what they do, and from that observed action I can rather easily deduce (with remarkable accuracy) what they believe and how they will see (and behave towards) a great many other things as well. Quite elementary my dear Watson.

    For example, atheistic materialists see themselves and everyone else as various sorts of vaguely defined and less than poorly understood “soulless organic wet robots”, and thus as mere assets and liabilities (or potentially so) and act on that basis. To such individuals the world is simply a mechanistic jungle in which the having and wielding of power over others is not just an important thing, it is the ONLY thing, thus a thing worth doing anything to obtain.

    The Name Stealers are such creatures. Regardless of what they call themselves at the moment (Zionist Jews, Satanists, U.S. Government, or whatever group whose identity they have stolen and are now exploiting in every way possible) the Name Stealers and their acolytes are quintessentially, just liars.

    Their situation, their plight really, is that they have dropped so far below the tipping point between truth & lies that they can not now escape that condition by telling more lies, and lying is the only thing that they know how to do. It is a truly desperate position, and so their actions reek of that sheer and terrified existential desperation.

    They literally don’t know what to do about it and are thus compelled to do the only thing that they know how to do about anything: LIE!

    And they’re scared. In fact, scared is hardly the word for it. They are utterly terrified. For one thing, they are personally certain (based on how THEY see the world from down there in their personal Hell) that if roles were reversed they would be in for the most horrible punishments possible to the imagination (and those demonic psychos have got pretty dark imaginations.) They see the world the way THEY see the world, and I leave it to your imagination of how they see the world. Remember, the only thing they know how to do is lie. They worship it because they see it as the only way out, because it tells them to. Remember, the ONLY thing they know how to do is lie.

    Wouldn’t want to be in their shoes.

    But I can also tell you how to identify the bastards, and yes you can use “labels” to help guide you in your search. So who are they? Why, they are simply the ones that are LYING ALL OF THE TIME, about important stuff, and encouraging you (sometimes FORCING you) that you should hurt innocent by-standers under ANY circumstances. Hurting innocent people is NEVER okay. Notice that I qualified the statement with the word innocent. If you have questions about that then you’ll have to ask God, not me. Determining innocence is above my pay grade.

    And the good guys are the ones who try to keep telling the truth

    When enough people agree that something is the right thing to do, then they will do it. Too bad that mysterious number or ratio is nearly impossible to know in advance on any particular issue. No one really knows where the tipping point will be, but the fact remains. There is a tipping point. And when it is reached then the agreed upon deed will be done. That happens to be absolutely true.

    So let’s agree upon some deeds that should be done:

    The Zionist led genocide in Pallestine must stop.

    The rule by criminals and their gangs must stop.

    The criminals must be successfully prosecuted and dealt with appropriately.

    The betrayal of the American people must cease, and earlier betrayals must be brought to light IN FULL.

    The incitement of strife between races must be forbidden, and strictly enforced

    The attack on Humanity must stop.

    The war against truth must be won by truth.

    Earlier this week, Collin Rugg posted an account of a particularly alarming incident that just happened in Chicago…

    A woman identified as ‘Nina’ says she was walking down the street when she got surrounded by teens who assaulted her.

    Her crime? Walking down the wrong street.
    They then held her husband back as they beat her, ripped out her hair, pepper sprayed her face and kicked her in the stomach.

    “First someone approached him and hit his head, punched him in the head, and he looked back and he looked at me and told me ‘run’.”
    “Another lady came to me and dragged me with my hair on the ground.”
    “Another person starts stomping all over me, and my husband ran towards me to save me and over 10 people held him.”

    She lost her baby hours later.

    The real American boots on the ground…

    Economic conditions are horrible, theft is absolutely rampant, and the violence in our streets is rapidly approaching levels only seen in the most dangerous areas of the planet. Unfortunately, most Americans still don’t understand the fundamental transformation that is happening to our society and they still believe that our leaders will be able to return things to “normal” eventually.

    The – avowedly imperfect – International Court of Justice (ICJ) at least ordered the biblical genocidals to stop bombing Rafah. Israel’s response? They bombed Rafah. Worse, they burned children alive in refugee tents. With American missiles.

    And the genocide will continue at least until the end of this multipolar year, as boasted by Israeli intel. The Global Majority at least clearly sees how the “rules-based international order” works.

    American Regime response to the ICC rulings of Genocide committed by Israel Jews and Americans-

    “America should punish the ICC and put (chief prosecutor) Karim Khan back in his place. If the ICC is allowed to threaten Israel’s leaders, we know that America will be next,” Johnson said during a press conference. “The ICC has no authority over Israel or the United States, and today’s baseless and illegitimate decision should face global condemnation.

    Regarding your ‘parasite’ theory…

    Agreed, things are being directed from a very high level that operates in the shadows. I’m often reminded of the biblical quote from Paul, wondering if the same dark powers that operated 2 millenia ago are still at the helm today:

    “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

    Based on my current level of awareness, I could easily answer “Yes!”

    I find myself cringing whenever I hear statements about how this or that leader is a moronic bozo that should be thrown out of office. Of course they are! But who put them there? Not the voters, but someone higher up the food chain. Just listen to Biden, Trudeau, Von der Leyen, Blinken, PM Kallas, etc. They’re imbeciles, “empty suits” as we used to call them. They’re “frontmen”, put there to carry out someone else’s plan and take the heat as payment for being elevated to high office. If any one of them actually had a plan of their own or operated from a set of deeply held principles, they would never be put in office. I’ve often referred to them here as Manchurian Candidates. It’s clear that higher forces put these so-called leaders in the driver seat, give them the map to hell, while we passengers scream for help out the windows.

    So, I’m left wondering, who or what is this parasite? And are they or it autonomous, or do they carry out a higher-order plan based on national karma or some other set of principles that we are not privy to at our level of scurrying animals looking for food, sex, and shelter, aka “useless eaters”?

    Regarding the rap – I’ve always liked it – from a boy and bought myself some Afrika Bombata as a twelve year old the way my grandparents would have bought Chuck Berry. Just new and raw and rhythmic.
    I never ever wrote rap until Covid. The era of data and receipts. A song is too subtle and you kind of kill a song with literal facts and anecdotes. I was a published songwriter that got signed to a label back in the day so can write songs but… They rarely work to convey what needs conveying. Substack is the LEAST friendly environment to release Rap. It’s for writers NOT musicians. Mostly older and mostly white nerds. BUT the concentration of dissident thinking is highest there of anywhere, so if 10 people are into it then it’s not for nothing.

    What you wrote about the apolitical/political dilemma is perfect. It’s a trap. You can’t hide anymore. If you write the cheeze about love and pet ownership or whatever but watch ONE Andrew Tate Video or like ONE Putin quote – THEY KNOW. And the internet keeps the score. So I’m fucked basically.

    A quick reminder, as nobody has yet provided an explanation:

If 100,000 Hungarians can get off their arses and let the world know what they think – and their only skin in the game is being human – then why do Benton’s non-Zionist Jews not stand up and protest the destruction of their prior reputation as caring people?

    Why are these Jews not protesting the murder of innocents by their fellow Jews; these Benton Jews have skin in the game, they will feel the blowback of the revelation to the world that there is good reason why the Jews are continuously “persecuted”, they are not able to live like normal people in society.

    The truckers in Canada were able to get off their arses and protest for the benefit of their own kind, the Jews used to be able to protest for the down trodden and the minorities, was that just self interest or did the Jews really care for other minorities and other “self-appointed” victims?

    The people who could really stop the genocide in Gaza are the Jews themselves, but they encourage it through their silence, as the good people of Hunagry protest. Dr D and Benton the Jew are still unable to come up with convincing excuses for their beloved “good” Jews.

    Benton the Jew only says that “Gaza must stop”, but we all know Gaza must stop, it will stop when Benton the Jew is cheering the murder of the last Palestinian. Supporting the genocide while pretending to not support the genocide; good amoral NPCs programmed by their owners.

    Dr D names Bernie Sanders as an example of how the good Jews are protesting, this is the Bernie Sanders politician who is supported by the like of the squad, the Bernie Sanders who is the limpest wristed politician money has bought, or HRC bought, or DNS bought. Bernie Sanders is your answer when in Hungary there are 100,000 humans protesting? Is this what you consider to be an appropriate response by the “good” Jews to show us that they mean it? Is this sufficient?

    Your arguments are pathetic as are your moral stances; your amorality shines through as you preach about logos and the white hats etc. So much bullshit.

    That tipping point is so close that I swear I can feel it in the air I can feel it in the air, like silent count-down.

    @aspnaz is starting to sound like an outright lunatic. Can somebody douse him with cold water or something? Snap out of it man. I thought you were Chinese, you know, calm realistic rationality and all that kind of thing, not some mad man screaming from a street corner.

    Make of it what you will, but here’s what I could find. A non tinfoil defense website has at least taken the trouble to deny the rumor. Stratfor shows CVN 69/Eisenhower still in the Red Sea as of yesterday.

    Don’t believe my enemy. He is lying.

    The Kyiv Independent examines some of the more notable statements.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin held a now-rare press conference with senior editors from international media outlets on June 5. Putin blamed Ukraine and the West for Russia’s war crimes, and made a new round of threats and jaw-dropping lies.

    Putin said that Ukraine is losing “up to 50,000 soldiers” each month, meaning that according to the Russian president Ukraine has up to 1.3 million soldiers dead or wounded since February 2022.

    Given Ukraine’s total military personnel numbers around 1 million, this would mean every single member of Ukraine’s Armed Forces was dead or wounded. (including mercenaries)

    According to Russian state media outlet TASS, Putin said that Western sanctions against Russia had failed and “the goal he set for the country to enter the top four economies of the world has been achieved.”

    It’s not true by all accounts.

    In a particularly passionate section of the event, Putin said the idea that Russia would attack a NATO country was “rubbish.”

    Additionally, the Kremlin hides a significant amount of economic data.

    “Russian President Vladimir Putin hopes that turning Russia into a black box will help support his claims that sanctions do not work, confusing Western policymakers, journalists, and citizens,” Foreign Policy noted in a March 2023 piece titled “Don’t trust Russian numbers.”
