Ed is dead in the USSA. Elsewhere, it’s still alive, well, and learning!
V. Putin explained the SMO to Russian school children. If he could find some way to dumb the kids message down 2 or 3 more SDs, then he could possibly explain the situation to USian adults.
And – great news!!! – despite your tax dollars bombing and murdering innocent people for eight years, Graham Phillips is happy to report that (real) school is back in session in the LPR! As someone at SG noted, this is what civilization looks like:
That’s what my brainwashed, retarded, mildly wicked friends say, some of them. And yet, not a damned one of them has read or listened to anything Putin has said, this year or probably ever. Their view of the SMO and the NATO-Nazi war on Russia and the Free Nations is limited to and shaped by the predictable reports of the CIA, the idiot pols, and their despicable house media. That is, all they know are lies. And, being that they are, some of them – maybe most of them, a little wicked, and more than a little stupid, that’s all they really care to know. I wish them well, but now more than ever I wish for separation from their kind.
Here’s what Mad Vlad said concerning his total ass-stomping of the US-led satanic world disorder. READ IT ALL.
The West, which once declared such principles of democracy as freedom of speech, pluralism and respect for dissenting opinions, has now degenerated into the opposite: totalitarianism. This includes censorship, media bans, and the arbitrary treatment of journalists and public figures.
These kinds of prohibitions have been extended not only to the information space, but also to politics, culture, education, and art – to all spheres of public life in the Western countries. And, they are imposing this on the world; they are trying to impose this model, a model of totalitarian liberalism, including the notorious cancel culture of widespread bans.
However, the truth and reality is that the people in most of these countries do not want this life or this future, and really do not want the formal semblance of sovereignty, they want substantive, real sovereignty and are simply tired of kneeling, of humiliating themselves before those who consider themselves exceptional, and of serving their interests even to their own detriment.
Today we hear that they want to defeat us on the battlefield. Well, what can I say? Let them try. We have already heard a lot about the West wanting to fight us ”to the last Ukrainian.“ This is a tragedy for the Ukrainian people, but that seems to be where it is going. But everyone should know that, by and large, we have not started anything in earnest yet.
If I could speak honestly to Mr. Putin, and I have tried previously, then I would tell him that most Amerikans are a pathetic lost cause. But he’s right, in that a minority of us truly want to be free, peaceful, independent, and NOT ruled over by the children of the devil. We must, if we are to survive, have our own nation(s), controlled by and for us and our children. Will ours be front three or four in this WW3? Who knows. Will we even have a front? If we do get the chance, then we will owe the opportunity to “crazy” Putin. At any rate, we must cheer as he and the other leaders and people of the Free, Sovereign World kick the satanic shit out of the demons who have misled, immiserated, and almost destroyed us. Pick a side.
…is dawning on globohomo.
The price of failure – the true cost of a Putin victory – could be staggering. It is potentially unsupportable for fractious western democracies and poorer countries alike, beset by simultaneous post-pandemic security, energy, food, inflation and climate crises. Yet out of myopic self-interest over issues such as Russian oil and gas imports, and from fear of wider escalation, western leaders duck the tough choices that could ensure Ukraine’s survival and help mitigate such ills.
When the lies run out, all satan’s servants are left with is fear. Staggering crisis for them is a stunning victory for us.
Post 3,001 … back on the sad state of world politics. But, this is a story about the stories. There’s a wide gulf of a difference between reporting around the world.
In the US, Drudge, CNN, etc. lamented the sad spectacle of the latest Democratic “debate.” Yeah, TrumpSlide. Elsewhere, the same sources provided lackluster commentary (OH WOW! WHAT?) on the Putin/Medvedev shakeup (again) in Russia. The dynamic duo certainly plots something. What? Other sources speculate in various ways.
RT has a humorous, it’ll-be-okay approach.
The Asia Times sees something familiar – a ploy to keep power for life.
Which is right? Who knows. The point is to get off the standard US right-left charade and make independent assessments. There, that wasn’t so painful, now was it?
Putin has it. Psst. Don’t tell anybody…
Absolutely no laughing matter for the likes of Rachel Maddow and others who have now spent years locked deep in their ‘Russiagate’ navel-gazing, but at least Putin still hasn’t lost his sense of humor about it.
While speaking on a panel of industry and political leaders at the Russian Energy Week conference, Putin mocked reports already alleging Moscow plans to interfere in the 2020 US presidential election. When pressed by NBC News correspondent Keir Simmons over whether former Special Counsel Robert Mueller was accurate in predicting Russia would “attempt to interfere” in the 2020 election, Putin leaned forward in a gesture to act like he was whispering a ‘secret’:
“I’m going to tell you a secret,” Putin said, leaning forward.
“Yes, we will definitely intervene, don’t tell anybody” he continued to an applauding crowd.
Putin for (US) President, 2024.
Vladimir Putin again attempts friendship with Trump and the rest of the West:
Russian President Vladimir Putin told his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump in a New Year letter on Sunday that Moscow was ready for dialogue on a “wide-ranging agenda”, the Kremlin said following a series of failed attempts to hold a new summit.
“Vladimir Putin stressed that the (Russia – United States) relations are the most important factor for providing strategic stability and international security,” a Kremlin statement said.
“He confirmed that Russia is open for dialogue with the USA on the most wide-ranging agenda.”
Moscow has said one of the key issues it wanted to discuss with the United States is Washington’s plans to withdraw from a Cold War era nuclear arms pact.
The man is an eternal optimist. Let’s pray Trump answers in kind.
In pushing forward the vast right-wing conspiracy, the Russians seemingly lost their minds. They stooped as low as common tax evasion and something about a beach house. That doesn’t buy many votes. And federal judge T.S. Ellis doesn’t seem to be buying the
government’s special counsel’s deep state’s charging authority.
Mueller’s team says its authorities are laid out in documents including the August 2017 scope memo – and that some powers are actually secret because they involve ongoing investigations and national security matters that cannot be publicly disclosed.
Ellis seemed amused and not persuaded.
He summed up the argument of the Special Counsel’s Office as, “We said this was what [the] investigation was about, but we are not bound by it and we were lying.”
He referenced the common exclamation from NFL announcers, saying: “C’mon man!”
Judges change their minds but sometimes, some very few times, the tree is poisoned and charges are dismissed. There’s the old saying: “When the judge reverts to sports talk, the case is over.” Putin knew that all along.
There is good news tonight: congratulations to Sergio Garcia on a Masterful performance at Augusta. One may have noticed a slight lack of color on CBS; they let the azaleas slip for once (no one is perfect, even the National). I guarantee the color will be back next year – along with many, many astounding changes (more on that later [HUGE doings in Augusta in years to come…]).
In Russia, the color is red. That’s what Putin is seeing and how he describes the line Trump crossed last week in Syria.
One of the things that got Trump elected was the fear that a second President Clinton would merely be a shill for the war parties, who would steer us uncomfortably close to armed conflict with Russia. Trump channeled his inner 2000-era W and promised a humble foreign policy. That all went out the window – missile tube, rather – last week.
Honestly, I would have picked another man to piss off… Drudge.
From The Daily Mail:
The Assad regime has denied it was responsible and the Russians have claimed it was a ‘false flag’ incident carried out by jihadists who want to stir up tensions between Russia and the US.
President Trump infuriated Moscow when he authorised an airstrike on a Syrian air base on Friday, which killed at least six people.
British Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon said today it was the ‘right call’ for the Americans to bomb the air base as retribiution for a ‘barbaric, immoral and illegal’ act by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who he described as a Russian ‘proxy’.
But in a joint statement the Russian and Iranians said: ‘We will respond to any aggression’.
The Sun reported that a joint command centre in Syria said: ‘What America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines. From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well.’
The Sun has a parallel story, perhaps most interesting because they dial back the rhetoric on the “definitive” narrative of the chemical attacks. Now, it’s only “suspected”. Next, will be privately written off and publicly ignored.
Right now, this all looks like two things: First, there’s tremendous rah-rah for Trump’s actions from the British Foreign Secretary. Second, there’s militant posturing from Damascus and Tehran. All well and good if it stays like that. Cooler heads might have a chance to prevail.
The British always have our backs. No change expected there. And neither Iran nor Syria have the ability to harm the U.S. in any significant fashion. It’s Russia that should worry sane people. They do have detrimental abilities.
Concerns mount that Kim-Jong Un(well) may have the ability to get one ICBM to Hawaii. Russia can get thousands of them everywhere. They can certainly disrupt American operations in Syria and the Med.
None of this is remotely good and it represents one of the major fears of last year’s campaign. Worst of all, is the fact that there is no rational basis for any of it – not for our intervention in Syria nor for anything but friendship with Russia.
To my previously dejected liberal friends, I say, “congratulations; it looks like your girl won after all”. To my Republican chums, I say, “congratulations; you elected Mr. Hilary Clinton”. To the rest of us, I say, “pray”.
The long odds are that this will all blow over. The short call is that it may blow up.
