    As with Dr.d, I certainly appreciate your comments. Nod to you both.

    May I humbly submit one of my go-to advert lines ( Fram oil filters?) from my impressionable youth that resonates through my decades of life on this planet ?

    Pay me now … or pay me later. ( picture of $5 oil filter followed by an engine being lifted out of a car )

    Speaks to consequences, timeliness of problem solving etc.

    I recently withdrew my Patreon support for James Kunstler. I just couldn’t abide his support for the unmitigated slaughter of Palestinians by the Israeli government, military and US ( government and citizens ).

    It seems he is more intent on throwing the spotlight on China … “ We struggle to sort this out. One explanation is that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has infiltrated the management of our country at every level so as to eventually conquer our territory for its resources while eliminating or enslaving the population?“

    I certainly don’t pretend to know whether this is a classic “look over there !” head fake.

    But I DO think there is a huge consensus worldwide that the Israeli lobby holds IMMENSE power in the good ole US of A. A power word smiths and influencers like James downplays significantly.

    @ Noirette
    “ He says that a French Diplomat communicated a message to Hezbollah, stating that if the Hezb. attacks – opens up a Northern Front, Isr. and the US will attack Damascus and take out Assad“

    My the chess game proceeds.

    And President Putin’s likely play would be ….?

    in reply to: Bibi #144733

    Can a US politician ever …

    1, Oppose the MIC
    2. Not regard Israel as a 1st level ally/little brother in need of unconditional support

    and expect to get votes and financing ?

    Just asking.

    how about 30 ? ( bedMA anyone )

    I would be interested in seeing the inclusion of the hypersonic missle into the montage.

    Or how about the speed of man made weapons over the course of history?

    @ Dr. D

    “ So The Core Premise of Leftist Thinking is OBEY and Not to Educate Yourself with Facts. In fact, fight facts and destroy them anywhere they are found.”

    At a recent social get together with my admitted political left friends, a quaint “and then there’s that evil criminal Putin …” comment was lobbed into the conversation.

    Instead of following my wife’s admonishments and quietly letting it pass, I stepped up and suggested that a huge chunk of the non-west world actually thought Mr.s Putin and Lavrov were exceptional diplomats in the world today.

    Long story short, a “spirited” discussion ensued and I came away with the firm belief many, many educated adults here in Canada trust explicitly their government and all their related agencies , and the legacy media — especially of course the CBC.

    Their bedrock counter to any reasoning and arguments I proposed outlining the global south’s perspective was “ well, who says your sources are credible? Sounds like propaganda to me.Putin invaded for no reason, he’s evil, end of story.”

    Needless to say, interactions with people of this worldview will be problematic going forward.

    “ The vaxxed have sold their soul to the government and medical experts. 100% blind trust. They aren’t going to bite the hand they think feeds them.“

    Couldn’t agree more. My dear wife is compliant to the core and does the equivalent of “ blah, blah, blah “ should I try to forward a study or contrary view. And I can’t wait until Sat when 6 of our friends finally visit — all hard core compliants as well .

    C’est la vie! …… I guess .

    … the “ War of the Worlds “ broadcast came to mind.

    but that could be my mind in denial.

    in reply to: Prigozhin’s First Message Since His Failed Coup #137871

    Killing the crew of one’s own country in time of war is a serious matter. As Dmitry Orlov posits, in the past such behaviour in Russia got one sliced up and put on pikes.

    Mr Putin did not seem the least bit amused. I imagine the consequences will be meted out at an appropriate time and place.

    in reply to: Debt Rattle June 24 2023 #137686

    @ dbs,

    Yes, the ole brere rabbit ploy. Killdeers also are quite proficient at the ruse.

    Re: Scott Ritter interview.

    While I listen to Mr. Ritter and appreciate his non-narrative contributions, a couple e things irk me regarding his beliefs….

    One, Americans are by and large highly moral humans. Uh huh, tell that to the multitude of indigenous peoples and the millions killed by American actions worldwide.

    Two, he gives the impression that the role of the military is wholly defense of the nation. Again, unless one totally buys the “ the best defence is offence “ mantra, history shows otherwise. 800+ military bases around the world is a case in point. Totally defensive, don’t cha know.

    And three, he seems to be a firm believer in American exceptionalism. It’s perfectly fine to kill non Americans, but whoa, kill an American and by golly to the ramparts!

    Just sayin.

    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.

    in reply to: Debt Rattle March 3 2023 #130358

    What I’m interested in with Orban is ….

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

    in reply to: China Compellingly Appears To Be Recalibrating #129983

    “ 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?

    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?

    Anticlimactic … Macron and Merkel … NO ONE ELSE ?

    You’re not serious right? Remember the cookie ( F the EU ! ) monster Nuland and her US neocon cabal?

    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.

    in reply to: Debt Rattle August 10 2022 #113178

    Ok, whoaaaaa.

    China baaaad because THEY are messing with the weather.

    1. and we here DON’T ? USA Watchdog guests beg to differ … chemtrails anyone ?

    2. and this is the same WEF that is so engaged in mine and humanity’s well being ? Really? Pot calling kettle black time imho.

    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.

    in reply to: Zelensky Finally Speaks The Truth #109337


    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.

    in reply to: Debt Rattle June 4 2022 #109058

    @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.
