    Lots about Orban & Hungarian perspective today.

    While I appreciate his resistance to the parasitic Empire & their demands on European poodles and his willingness to talk to president Putin, I still am perplexed about his “ adding that he understood what Putin said, but cannot accept what he did. “ statement.

    Is this just fig leaf diplomacy?

    Again, what would Orban have done inPutin’s shoes ? Negotiate ? Bwahaahahaahahh , yup that’s a tried and true winner solution when dealing with the Empire.

    What I’m interested in with Orban is ….

    “ Well, what would YOU do in V Putin’s shoes sir ? “

    “ and Russia’s defeat would become possible.“

    …..annnnnd nope. Not according to Martynov, Larry Johnson, Ritter, the Saker at. al.

    to them ( if my reading and listening to their analyses is correct )the “west” by treating Russia with contempt ( gas station with nukes ) over the past couple of decades missed the point that Russia has them THOROUGHLY beat in the INDUSTRIAL conventional war arena.

    The overly complicated, fragile “game changing” super duper weapons costing a prince’s ransom ( to taxpayers) are no match for what Russia can deliver. how did it turn out against mountain goat herders ?

    That only leaves the nukes, specifically the submarine based nukes.

    But what do I know. I hope the above mentioned, QUALIFIED experts weigh in on this analysis.

    It will be interesting to see which leaders will dangle on the coattails of our loathesome leaders here in Canada ( Trudeau and Freeland ) who declared a national emergency on horn honking truckers. Let’s bring in the muscle and at the same time steal directly from their bank accounts.

    Oh, and if you supported the truckers or their cause of Covid response over-reach, let’s steal those funds too — and publish their names and financial information for further punishment.

    Freedom, democracy and all that the “ West” offers!

    Yup, could be interesting.

    Always been a fan of your comments, but today I have to stand up and give a sound hear ye! hear ye!

    “ Power mad lizard brain psychopaths cannot understand this because they don’t know what life or human beings actually are. They think that life and people are just squishy machines that can be built to order and “domesticated” into permanent subservience.“

    And should you wish to buy “junk” Cdn silver coins, you need to add the 13% tax on as well. Just take spot and add on 65%.

    Mind you a coin dealer I contacted was willing to buy said junk silver at 80% of spot, and Silver Gold Bull online will give 95% …. still, not a bad margin huh?

    in reply to: Shadow Ban 2.0 #122233

    Convinced of the value your blog delivers. However, given the PayPal controversy recently I have left that service. Have you any other avenue to transfer support funds from Canada?

    Re: the Pelham tweet

    It would be nice to have a copy of the said “suggestion” from the Ont College of Physicians and Surgeons to bolster this startling news.

    It’s one thing to be prevented from travel outside one’s country, and quite another to be deemed mentally impaired with all the remedial measures imposed – from a caring government and their supporters of course..

    Wow. Dr. Mengele would be so proud..

    “ implicates all of the jabs, including the non-replicating ones such as NovaVax, and the location of said potential damage is the brain.“

    Germ, couldn’t find this . Particularly interested in NovaVax vulnerability.

    Could you point me to where in the paper you pulled this finding from?

    That whole coup was orchestrated by the sycophant vassals then ?

    Hmmmm, count me dubious.

    Well, it occurred to me while appreciating Dr. D’s commentary “ gee however will we live without that enormous financial tapeworm in our guts “ that he, RIM and the AE community are collectively the lad in the crowd who cries out “the king has no clothes!”

    Kudos to you all for delivering my daily dose of the “red pill”news and analysis. Especially you Dr. D , your cutting sarcasm speaks to my sense of humour.

    Thank you for the HH quote on trees !

    I too revere them, and on a daily basis lay in my hammock for my afternoon siesta, surrounded by them and the wildlife they nuture. I appreciate them and the natural world they and I share. Yes trees, like the starry night serves as a contemplative springboard.

    As does the AE community (of course) serve as food for thought.

    Ok, whoaaaaa.

    Great selection of the West vs Russia multi-faceted war today Raul.

    What gob smacks me is that Germany has its shorts in a knot because they can’t get over the audacity of the Russians — whom they are basically at war with — not supplying them with the essentials to basically sustain the war effort against them.

    Just like the Covid fiasco. Did anyone do a SERIOUS, sane risk-reward appraisal? Something based in the REAL world instead of the ideological political world ?

    in reply to: Debt Rattle July 24 2022 #112058

    Well, for all AE members with an interest in geo-political reality, the good news is that. ( drumroll …. ) the Saker is back!

    A long overview analysis is posted at https://thesaker.is/five-months-into-the-special-military-operation-a-summary/.

    Interesting to say the least!

    in reply to: Debt Rattle July 14 2022 #111507


    I too often ponder this concept of man’s propensity for violence and war.

    Have just started a book where an academic historian examines this very question. Title of the book is War ( How conflict shaped us ) by Margaret MacMillan.

    Perhaps worth a look.

    “ No doubt Z was promised endless W support in the form of Prop, arms, etc. as well as personal guarantees for impressive wealth (for a B – C actor in a failed state..!) and an out to settle in luxury in some other country. “

    Oh his motivations are the usual all right, tens of millions, but also to those in the entertainment business, never discount the ego — FAME ! And the audiences he has been given, the unlimited glowing publicity. A-list baby! Made the A list!

    But in the slimy world of geo-politics, is but a short trip to that small plane flight over remote countryside ( Confessions of an Economic Hit Man ) and an intimate encounter with gravity.

    The analogy holds in that both the virus and Russia’s actions were choreographed by the altruistic US of A. Their fingerprints could be seen by a blind man.

    @JohnDay 109050,

    Bravo, great summation. Worth saving for the lemmings. Maybe one will see the reality and prepare their family.

    in reply to: Debt Rattle June 4 2022 #109034


    Given that you have increased your Ukie friendly posts significantly, perhaps you can provide your bona fides for me to take what you say as more than just Ukranian cheerleading propaganda.

    I for instance would like to see how you measure up in knowledge and experience with say Andrei Martyanov.

    You of course have the right to your opinion, but imho are going a bit overboard on the propaganda/cheerleading.

    In other news,

    … the psychopaths in charge of the “ exceptional nation” move ever closer to the stepoff of the precipice they stare into.


    Perhaps King Crimson is appropriate…..

    King Crimson
    The wall on which the prophets wrote
    Is cracking at the seams
    Upon the instruments of death
    The sunlight brightly gleams

    When every man is torn apart
    With nightmares and with dreams
    Will no one lay the laurel wreath
    The silence drowns the screams?

    Confusion will be my epitaph
    As I crawl a cracked and broken path
    If we make it, we can all sit back and laugh
    But I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying
    Yes, I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying
    Yes, I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying

    Between the iron gates of fate
    The seeds of time were sown
    And watered by the deeds of those
    Who know and who are known

    Knowledge is a deadly friend
    When no one sets the rules
    The fate of all mankind, I see
    Is in the hands of fools

    The wall on which the prophets wrote
    Is cracking at the seams
    Upon the instruments of death
    The sunlight brightly gleams

    When every man is torn apart
    With nightmares and with dreams
    Will no one lay the laurel wreath
    When silence drowns the screams?

    Confusion will be my epitaph
    As I crawl a cracked and broken path
    If we make it, we can all sit back and laugh
    But I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying
    Yes, I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying
    Yes, I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying

    Yes, I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying
    Yes, I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying
    Yes, I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying
    Crying, crying

    Oroboros…. Indeed it does.

    Far Side along with Calvin & Hobbes are the ultimate in comics. That they can be used extensively in analogous real world situations adds to their charms imho.

    in reply to: Debt Rattle April 23 2022 #106657

    Your point resonates. It seems PCR has taken the pulse of America ( insouciance to use his favourite characterization) and imho is bang on when he comments on the doings of America and the Empire they control.

    It’s when he comments on the strategy and competence of Russia where Orlov has an issue, as he seems to project his understanding of the way the American powers think onto the Russian decision makers, making unfounded criticisms in some peoples views.

    I’m sure when Orlov delves into the American strategies, his biases play a part as well and PCR would be justified in calling him out on them.

    This criticism is just a small sample of the issue regarding all the American MSM talking heads and commentators spewing what they think V. Putin is thinking etc etc when in fact they know very little. Even Orlov would admit while his analysis may be closer, there is no real way to know what Mr. Putin is thinking — unless of course you are Lavrov.

    in reply to: Debt Rattle April 23 2022 #106651

    Here is the PCR article referenced by Orlov . Commenters can read both it and Orlov’s response to make up their own minds, no?

    The Kremlin Has Missed the Opportunity to End the Provocations of Russia that Are Bringing the World to Nuclear War

    I have read both authors for years and have indeed noticed PCR’s stringent tone increase over time. Orlov’s main point ( imho) is that PCR, like the vast majority of western political analysts, just “ don’t get “ the Russian POV , as they haven’t really taken the time to study its long history and culture.

    To me, he has a point. PCR wanted Russia to go in there like America went into various middle eastern countries — guns a blazing with } Shock and Awe “ , levelling everything and everyone! Impress the H out of the noncompliants.

    Orlov is saying that doesn’t fit the Russian approach.

    Decide for yourself.

    in reply to: War Is Over If You Want It #106159

    I have been hoping you would augment your news aggregate with one of your essays, and in this you did not disappoint.

    I follow the Ukraine situation mainly through the words of the Saker, Pepe Escobar, Mike Hudson, Andrei Martynov, Scott Ritter and others who present the “other” view. As such, I was reading your take above and was impressed that you seem to read the same aforementioned analysts. I am looking forward to the AE community’s comments as they often have additional perspectives to factor in.

    Thanks for this Easter present Raul.

    in reply to: Debt Rattle April 7 2022 #105636

    @V. Arnold
    “ I read your Debt Rattles…every day…completely…and am overwhelmed by the information…
    It’s so much easier to comment on the art; which I do love…
    …the world gone mad is so disturbing as to be uncomprehensible at times…
    and you always grab the meat of that insanity…
    Keep on keeping on; you’re needed as a ground in this insane world………“

    Sir, I had to comment. You NAILED the feelings I have about the madness this world continues to progressively slide into. The corruption seems everywhere and so blatant. I find the judiciary’s corruption most worrisome as the hope that malefactors will find justice dissipates like the morning mist.

    And Dr. D, hats off to you. I loathe hypocrisy and you have Olympic medalist cred documenting it day in and day out! How do you stand emotionally to reporting on such depressing news ?

    I ramble. Bottom line, thanks to Raul, Dr. D and the other fine commenters on this fine blog.


    in reply to: Debt Rattle March 19 2022 #104509


    I thought I had mis clicked when the first pic I saw was the fresco one. It looks exactly like the emotional appeals sent to my wife’s email to demonize those dastardly Russians.

    My point to her is simply, “ and where was this painter for the past 8 years ?”

    Yes, of course, ALL CHILDREN ( and innocent civilians) MATTER and are equal. It just seems some children are more equal than others.

    And this of course is at the core of American ( and the “ west’s” ) exceptionalism and blatant hypocrisy that drives me bonkers.

    Whoa. As found on the Sakers blog, ANOTHER seismic economic event ( in addition to Robo’s noted undermining of the petrodollar ) ….

    Sitrep : Sanctions and quite major economic news

    Less than 3 months into 2022 and some BIGLY world altering events unfolding.

    in reply to: Debt Rattle March 7 2022 #103713


    From what I have read, in times of asset bubbles you need to preserve wealth by holding your wealth in something that will rise when the bubbles are burst. That rules out stocks, bonds and real estate. With the Fed having to choose between pumping air into stocks OR bringing price inflation down for the Hoi poi little folks, who do you think a cable of bankers will choose? So the dollar will be sacrificed….

    Hence what these experts suggest is the old standby gold and silver. Problem at the moment is that with the events of decline speeding up, more people are moving to these life rafts.

    For your consideration at least.

    in reply to: Debt Rattle March 2 2022 #103298

    @Dr D,
    Appreciate your ability to cut through the BS and get to the reality of the situation, it certainly augments Raul’s choice of articles from around the world.

    I too use this map to try and explain “ the other side of the coin” to wide eyed, thoroughly propagandized friends and relatives. The other two pictorials used is the one showing the NATO/American bases surrounding Russia and China, and the one listing the various American interventions in other countries— be they coups, election meddling etc.

    With these 3 pictures, there is some chance of begrudging acknowledgment, and an opportunity for them to explore deeper into the rabbit hole via questions. At least that’s my experience so far.

    in reply to: Debt Rattle February 28 2022 #103150

    Thank you for the diagram showing NATOs expansion since 1997.

    For social harmony, my ( inflexible liberal minded wife ) insists I endure the chattering of friends and family as they express their emotional distress and animosity over the situation in Ukraine, all of which comes from the CBC and other “captured” ( imho ) mainstream media here in Canada.

    There comes a point however when my conscience insists I RESIST and offer that it’s more complicated than the MSM presents, and in fact I believe we Canadians, being the enthusiastic sycophants to the Empire that we are, share some of the blame.

    Enter your visual representation of NATOs offensive movement for support, as referring to text, as in essay of Luongo, the Saker, P.C Roberts, C. Johnson or Orlov guarantees glazed eyes.

    We’ll see how it goes today, as I can guarantee it will be raised in conversation…..

    in reply to: Debt Rattle February 26 2022 #102997

    I adore Calvin and Hobbs, have all their comics in collectible books and such.

    So when Tom Luongo used Calvinball in his analysis of the geopolitical playing field, I was in there like a dirty shirt.

    Putin Ushers in the New Geopolitical Game Board

    And in truth, I think Mr. Luongo makes a whole lot of sense. The game is changing.

    in reply to: Debt Rattle February 25 2022 #102881

    Raul —- wow, hats off to you and a spectacular AE today. My ( intolerant liberal ) wife was aghast that as her beloved CBC screamed, Russia had invaded Ukraine and was bombing civilians Willy nilly. How dare I be a Russian apologist! I quietly and calmly tried to give her the basics of why, but your choice of articles today is a far better guide. Not that she will read them. Sometimes I dream of a “clockwork Orange” sit down solution for the deeply propagandized.

    …. and Dr. D, you knocked it out of the park yet again!

    Thank you both.

    Further to the discussion of Trudeau’s 180.

    A Major Backfire – Is the Canadian Financial and Banking System in Serious Trouble as a Result of Their Attack on Private Bank Accounts?

    I think the crypto crowd will pay special attention to the sentence “ Worse yet, the short-sighted Canadian government via Minister Freeland announced their ability to control cryptocurrency exchanges in their country and block access … .”

    in reply to: Debt Rattle February 22 2022 #102461

    … always been willing to make sacrifices to neonazis….

    Well, many disagree ( reading Saker.is blog ) . The EU are viewed as captured poodles of the US and do as they are told, all grumbling aside.

    The war Biden needed was to further enhance this political and economic bond to almost slavish levels, buying their energy at twice the cost as what Russia would charge — hence keeping the impending everything bubble from popping.

    At least that’s one working theory.

    in reply to: Debt Rattle February 12 2022 #100874

    @Dr D,

    A tip of the hat to you sir. I am constantly amazed at the breadth and depth of your insights and comments. Still have your head as you master the lower depths of the rabbit hole.

    I don’t know how you can keep it all together knowing just how slimy and evil the truths are down there. The hypocrisy, duplicity of one group and the sad moronic, unthinking acceptance of reality by the other.

    Sometimes I just find it so depressing. Kudos Dr. D — and other sharp commenters here on AE!
