Introduction: America’s Death-Wish
‘Russian roulette’ is a most peculiar expression. At least for any Russian. For the simple reason that he has never heard of it. In fact, it does not exist in Russian, neither the expression, nor the reality. It is something we learn about with astonishment when we learn English. The expression is an American invention and only an American with a death-wish could have thought up such a thing, in 1937, in fact (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_roulette). And so it is that only an American with a death-wish could have thought up the present situation. He has poked the bear so much and so often for over thirty years that the bear has had a lot of time to plan exactly what he would do. Now he is doing it. Why are you surprised? You loaded the gun and pointed it at your own head, now expect the bullet to come out.
Where We Came From
The Special Military Operation (SMO) in the Ukraine could have been over as early as April 2022, or at latest in August when most of the old Soviet weapons of the Kiev regime forces, augmented by supplies from ex-Warsaw Pact countries, had been destroyed. However, ignoring the Ukrainian people, since they are mere cannon fodder, the West intervened and escalated the conflict into a full-scale war by supplying its weaponry, technology and manpower at the bidding of the Westernised Ukrainian oligarchate. (Just as in February 1917, when the West created the ‘Russian Revolution’ at the bidding of the Westernised Russian oligarchate, also ignoring the people). Thus, the Ukraine has become merely the battleground for the real War, that between Russia and the USA.
The Russian response to Western escalation and aggression is partial mobilisation. The limited SMO will need more manpower to defeat the doomed NATO-supplied Nazis, whose numbers have been much increased by the arrival of NATO troops in Ukrainian uniform as well as by mercenaries. President Putin was accused by the Western ruling class through their State-controlled media mouthpieces of threatening them with nuclear attack. This was not the case. He had simply answered Truss, who had threatened Russia with nuclear attack, replying that any such aggression would be met by Russia with the same.
President Putin now awaits the winter in order to give the peoples of Western Europe opportunities to reflect and then force their spineless leaders to reject American tyranny. Since 2014 President Putin has become determined to remove the American threat to his Western borders and so to Western and Central Europe once and for all. Only then will the North-Western peninsula of the Eurasian continent at last become free. In order to do this, he has built up relationships with China, India and others in Asia, as well as with many countries in Africa and Latin America. Thus, in recent months he has rapidly gathered influence all over Eurasia.
Where We Are Now
As the Soviet Union between 1989 and 1991, so the European Union between 2022 and 2024. Now is not the time for top-down Unions –in the last two generations since 1989 they have been collapsing in favour of international co-operation between sovereign nations, as is needed by the grassroots. Demonstrations have taken place in the Czech Lands, Austria, Germany and the Netherlands, all calling on Kiev to start negotiating with Russia, and on the EU Commissars to stop behaving like vassals of the US feudal magnates. Germany is very nervous, it risks its industry shutting down. And German winters can be very cold. Now the two undersea Nordstream pipelines for Russian gas to Germany, have exploded. Of course, it is sabotage.
The USA has successfully cut off German industry, and much of Europe, from the Russian gas that could have powered it up again, had the EU wanted to be free of dependence on the US. The Hungarian government also wants Kiev to negotiate – it has Hungarian citizens across the border in Zakarpattia. And there are those in Romania who think the same about the province of Romanian Chernivtsi across the border, though those who think that are not allowed to be part of the present US-puppet government. Poland also wants its territory back, perhaps all five provinces of the far western Ukraine: Volyn, Rivne, Lviv, Ternopil, Ivano-Frankivsk. Meanwhile, Italy is about to get a new, anti-Brussels nationalist government, much to the dislike of the unelected EU elite.
The euro has already collapsed against the dollar. Now it is the turn of the pound sterling. The pound sterling has lost 20% of its value against the dollar since MissTrust came to power. The UK, stabbed in the back by the US for its anti-EU policy on Northern Ireland, has an economy which is not emerging from covid, but submerging after covid. The UK Establishment media trumpet that the UK State Health Service’s waiting lists are now down to only (sic) two years for most people (if you don’t die before that). Over 10% of UK citizens, 7 million people, are now waiting for treatment. Some are in great pain. In any other country in the world, there would be a revolution if waiting lists for health treatment were longer than two months. Some UK citizens are even going to the Ukraine to get proper health treatment.
The UK’s infrastructure, utilities, roads, railways, education and healthcare, has in many places reached what used to be called ‘Third World’ levels. The UK currency crisis has come about because of the UK government’s need to borrow huge amounts of money – this was MissTrust’s ‘bold plan’. After all, the UK Establishment follows to the letter US orders and has had to refuse Russia’s riches and subsidise the bankrupt Ukraine. The UK level of debt is now approaching that of the USA and catching up with that of Italy, whom it used to mock as a ‘basket case’. As they say: ‘What goes round, comes round’.
Where We Are Going
How will all this end? From the start I have believed that this will all end with the Russian victory. This means:
1. Another Ukraine
There will always be an East Slav-speaking country between south-eastern Poland and south-western Russia, whatever it will be called. However, in the future it will be a country within its natural borders, occupied only by those who voluntarily identify with the government and culture in their capital of Kiev. Moreover, deNazified, it will present no military, biological or nuclear threat to its neighbours and will be independent of geopoliticians in Washington and Brussels.
2. Another Russia
As a result of the War against NATO, Russia will be freed of the froth of Westernised sycophants formed in the 1990s, the liberal chattering classes, called in Russian ‘the creative class’. The 5% who are enserfed to the West and its overpriced consumer baubles are only repeating the treason of the Westernised ruling class and traitors from before 1917 who also wasted their fortunes on overpriced Western consumer baubles. Those who will continue to behave like chimpanzees with regard to their Western lords and masters should go and live in the West, if they have not already fled Russian justice for Finland, Georgia or elsewhere. Russia at war against NATO (= the US) is a land that needs patriots, not traitors.
3. Another Europe
At the present time Central and Western Europe risk ‘Donbassisation’ as a result of US demands for absolute obedience to their anti-Russian tyranny, known as ‘sanctions’. This means that NATO-ised Central and Western Europe will become deindustrialised, impoverished, cold, hungry and also left defenceless, as their arms will have been destroyed in the Ukraine. However, it is only at that low point that they will begin to understand that their future is not across the Atlantic, but next door, with Eastern Europe and Eurasia, the gateway to Asian growth and prosperity.
4. Another World
Seven billion of the eight billion people of the world, 87.5% of the planet, await the day of freedom from Western imperialism, exploitation and nuclear threats, aspiring to humanity, truth, justice and prosperity. Their only hope is the coming Russian victory over the US. Once that is here, much will fall back into its natural place. Asia with China and India, Africa, Latin America and all the Western peoples (basically, Western and Central Europe, North America and Oceania), so long oppressed by the gloomy darkness of the feudal Western elite, will be able to follow in Russian footsteps and walk, at first dazzled, into the bright daylight of freedom.
In 1939, quite infamously, Winston Churchill expressed his extraordinary ethnocentric ignorance by calling Russia ‘a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma’. Like many ignorant people, he was of course talking about himself. When you cannot be bothered to understand someone else’s viewpoint, just call it ‘a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma’. You will then have successfully defined yourself as a blinkered and selfish narcissist. The only thing is, when you depend on that someone else for vital gas, oil, fertiliser, wheat, paper, titanium etc, maybe you really should after all make an effort to understand their viewpoint. Otherwise, they will definitely consider your death-wish, the totally suicidal behaviour of your American Roulette as, ‘a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma’.

Batiushka, I don’t disagree with most of your posit, I read your opinions frequently. In regards of your statements of UK, you are repeating US propaganda from the last 15 years. How long did you live in UK…? How long have you used their free national health…? How long have you used the public transportation routes and system, which is highly efficient given the population density for limited hectares. None of it is how you represent. Please conduct your representations accordingly. The public transportation and infrastructure is superior to EU. So is their healthcare system. Liz Truss is a disastrous neo-con who believes she needs to bully to have a pulpit, though she is so ignorant in perception of foreign policy…(just like Trump)….which is reputed to be her expertise… perish the thought. I wish she would take a course in geo-politics from you before she engaged her opinion. We would all be safer…. I think she is trying to take the US Puppy Dog crown from Boris or even to exceed Tony Blair…deep in his exiled irrelevancy. Except when his war crimes tribunal begins…
Perhaps you should listen to the duran’s Alexander Mercouris, who DOES live in the UK and has done so for decades, and finds the present situation the worst he has seen. Sir Tony Blair, Cameron, May and of course Boris Johnson were terrible, the “Labour Party’s” knightly zionist leader Sir Keith Starmer is no better, and obviously Least Trust (sic) is not going to save the disunited kingdom from disaster.
How long have you lived in the UK?
The NHS is in crisis with hugh waiting lists, people dying in droves before they get treatment. People waiting in some cases 8 hours for an ambulance to arrive. Ambulances queued up outside hospitals because there are no beds. The Cons have been closing wards, cutting A&E units as in Poole, Mother and Baby units as in Poole. People having to wait 3 weeks before they can get to see a doctor, that’s if they can get through to the surgery.
“The public transportation and infrastructure is superior to EU.” Are you kidding. The German and Italian rail transport are far superior. Have you ever tried standing room only from Poole or Bournemouth to Waterloo because of the lack to trains or carriages. People are packed in like sardines. As for the buses, services have been cut to the bone or non existent in rural areas, and bus companies going out of business.
The UK is fast becoming a failed state.
To demonstrate my point:
But apart from that we’re doing OK. We’ve got 150 genders, King Charles the turd, sorry third and a diversified population that looks like a UN conference. Yet at the end of the day the majority public voted for it. I just hope that the coming winter starts to wake people up a bit. Boris followed by Truss … You couldn’t make it up!
“King Charles the turd”, boy that’s a good one.
That’s Bogus Carol. I live in the UK. so does all my family. You are listening to garbage and believing it…because you want to. Do YOU live in UK too…?
We are already there,i have used trains in Germany and the Netherlands over the years,we in the UK can’t come anywhere near,in fact i would have trouble affording them these days,they went the same lunatic privatisation way years ago,its totally insane that the French Government own most of my energy provider here in England,as for the NHS the criminals have almost destroyed it by stealth.
Yep, sad but true. I like to be positve, but I really don’t see any way our for our country. To give an example of our ‘wonderful’ infrastructure, a German company won a contract to build some trains for one of our parasitic rail companies. In order to test the train’s ability to run on the British rail system, they literally had to smash the rails on their test track with hammers to warp it out of shape in order to match the conditions on the average British railway line.
The Labour government nationalized British railways in 1946 and it worked just fine at a very cheap price. \
Then along came Lord Beeching removed 4,000 miles of track in 1966.
Then British Rail was privatized in 1993 by the Conservative party and the service has now become very expensive, unreliable and still has to be subsidized by the taxpayers.
The UK Conservative party have been trying to destroy the National Health Service ever since it was introduced in 1946 by the Labour government of Clement Attlee and it looks as though they are succeeding.
However, there are plenty of private clinics, where you can receive immediate and expert medical treatment, provided that you can afford it and/or have private medical insurance with say BUPA and AVIVA.
I lived in the UK in the early 90s. Went over from Norway to study, and to get away from socialism. Quickly concluded UK was a third-world country with an akward class system. Was positively impressed with the NHS though.
Going back on a nostaligic trip in the early 00s I was shocked. Where as before you would bump into the occational drunk/junkie beggar through town, now there was a beggar lined up on every street corner.
If it has progressed in the same direction, even at a linear rate, for 20 years … it’s probably not worth going back.
Excuse me, the UK is little different than the rest of the Western World. The Western World is mired in unpayable debt. There is no free medical care unless doctors and other health care workers are providing their services for free. The UK, like the rest, consider themselves “Rich Western Nations” They are broke Western nations that are running out of places to hide mountains of unpayable debt.
The only way out now is to issue unbacked money to pay off the debt backed money which will end up in a cascading whirlwind of inflationary price increases. You will soon be yearning for a Rouble denominated bank account so that your money will retain value until you are ready to spend it.
With the Pound in crisis, it is probably the wrong time to be comparing the UK to Russia, which is soon to be sporting the currency of the year award.
Last time i checked total UK debt was 6-700%, and public debt 300%, i.e. far beyond Greece / Italy / Portugal.
That has to be paid back? No. UK has proven to the world Austrian economics is worthless theories.
UK has traditionally been the business-friendly country, with easy access to credit (it used to be 2% mortgage rates)
Why should any sovereign nation be in debt to private banks in its own currency ?
Beacuse we are ‘soverign’ only in name. The government actually borrows our money off the international markets as apposed to isssuing it themselves – a deliberate permanent handout to the free-loaders otherwise known as financial organizations. Regardless of whatever my government claims, they have no interest whatsoever in paying off the debt. They just use cutting spending as an excuse to privatise any public service they can. In reality, most functions of the NHS have been private for a while now. The only parts that remain public are the unprofitable parts. We may not pay at the point of service, but we get gulled for it via our taxes as ‘market efficiency’ is just a euphemism for robbing the public blind in my country. The Bank of ‘England’ is actually a private operation just like the ‘Federal’ Reserve in the US. Sadly, in my country (and the US), the majority of people do not know this and just assume they are publicly owned institutions. The only part the public get to ‘own’ is the masses of debt the bank creates.
US / Italy is bankcrupt because public debt is 150+% of GDP?
Not so with US. And UK is at level twice as much debt as US.
Here any Austrian understands nothing. Peter Schiff is bankrupted himself.
RCB (Russia) is running austerity and undermines businesses – like austerity does. GDP growth in Russia is record low.
– Why should any sovereign nation be in debt to private banks in its own currency ?
Money is not created the way we are told in alt media. Mostly money is created by commercial banks – not central banks – by mortgages / secured loans. Every new mortgage = creation of money. Every mortgage downpaid = destruction of money,
Saying money is created from thin air is not true in general.
Since there is a link between construction of new homes and money creation, no construction = depression.
China has built 100 cities with no people … to create growth
UK debt clock v us debt clock. There’s no comparison, the US survives because the dollar is the reserve currency.
The NHS in the UK isn’t free,i spent decades of my working life paying tax for the service and i had no problem with that,its the sign of a civilised society how they look after the sick young and old,unfortunately the neoliberal filth now running the Country are hell bent on destroying it,thats because they are far from civilised.
Well said Englishman… ! We have all paid for the system. To protect all of us. Now being usurped by European migrants at an unsustainable rate. To the point of collapse. Thank goodness the only thing Boris did of value was to take us out of the debacle of the EU. The way that was presented… I actually voted for it. 10 years later I saw how Britain was penalized for EU benefit. I regretted my vote for a tarriff free trade zone…which was all EU was purported to be… until they got delusions of absolute control, grandeur and a United Staes of EU…? Nah…count me out….
element4’s comments are badly out of kilt with the reality on the ground. Free national health care where you are forever on a waiting list? A healthcare system where hospital patients have to drink water from the flower vases is superior to the system in Germany where people have a choice of three different types of hospitals? Public transportation routes where there are hundreds of villages where the only public transport is the once-a-week free Asda bus? Train tickets which are 500% more expensive than in Italy? Public transportation and pot holes, sorry, infrastructure superior to the EU? The A1, the main North-South road on the East coast still having long sections of single lane traffic? I would only mention motorways in Portugal and public transport in Holland as standards that the Brits can only dream of.
In Finland we truly have free healthcare and the waiting times are still decent. But now we are becoming a official Natostan member. We abandoned our good relationship with Russia (and soon with China) so the future does look quite bleak as our military spending is increasing and the pressure from US to harden words towards Russia is taking place. Finland transformed in six months from a relatively neutral state to extremely russophobic.
So where do you live kantankerous…? You are not on a forever waiting list at NHS. I have experienced that and so has all my family. You get care commensurate with your emergency and very good care. I cannot fault the care my ageing parents received, timely, when needed. Anyone who claims otherwise is ignorant. I use public transportation, I use the trains, I use the roads. The roads are kept in good repair, as necessary. Our motorways compare to German Autobahns and US Interstates. Actually, our A roads are superior to many US Interstates, many of our Motorways are superior. Conservatives privatized the Railroads…why are you surprised it now costs SO much more…? I grew up riding the rails for cheap…. now you have to reserve a seat…privitization only works for the donor class…. I’ve taken trains, buses and roads in Holland and Portugal… it is definitely NOT superior, just adequate.
Have good friend just returned to the UK two weeks ago from the United States.
The wait to see a dentist was a year plus in UK she came had procedures flew back. According to her testimony there is only one dentist per 100k persons in UK.
America tortures the whole world.
Russia has to stop this Arrogance of US.
Putin’s goal is regime change in Ukraine.
Biden’s goal is regime change in Russia.
Once Putin gets this through his head, then there will have to be a complete change of strategy to cut the head off the snake.
The elections outsmarted NATO. Putin is in no hurry.
No news from frontline = no offensive from Kiev = Kiev lost
FJB, Biden to some, has only two goals:
(1) A fresh diaper when needed
(2) A cup of warm Ovaltine at 5:30 PM.
Now, FJB’s handlers insist that he get a full body young blood infusion every weekend, but FJB doesn’t care so long as his diapers are clean and he get an extra cup of Ovaltine at noon on weekends.
You missed it Kapricon4. US already did the regime change in Ukraine in 2014. Then US corporations immediately wrote 99 year leases on all the prime lands. Cargill bought docks in Odessa. The list goes on. The US financed the Coup culminating in Maidan Square. Then installed a new Government of Svboda, the Brown Shirts and the Right Secktor. Each one a nazi group celebrating nationalism and Stepan Bandera, responsible for Waffen SS in Ukraine and the deaths and deportaion of some 2 million Polish and Russian Jews. They still have a torchlight celebration of his birthday, Jan 1, every year, in western Ukraine, especially Lviv and Kviv. It’s sickening that the west set this up and supports it….
Very good read. Thank you.
Right on! There is much work to be done but I think there is light at the end of the tunnel … and it’s not the train. Thank you for working diligently in your preparation to these valuable posts with valuable insights. In other words, great work kiddo! Keep on keepin’ on.
Batiushka, can you please please elaborate on the below?
“The UK, stabbed in the back by the US for its anti-EU policy on Northern Ireland…”
NATO (= the US)? Correction. NATO = City of London (anglo european aristocracy, banking cartels, central bankers, “western elites”, etc.)
US Imperialism,( the continuation of the british empire under the american flag), British Imperialism, Zionism, Nazism ARE ALL subsidiaries, projects of the the “western elites” as Putin refers to them. When you look at it from this perspective, events make more sense.
The american and british people have a history of fighting fascism and slavery. They should not be forced to take to take the rapp for this while the elites quietly slink away. They do not deserve it.
If Putin can get it right, so can you.
I always refer to the reality as being Empire ruled by Emperor living in New-Rome.
Empire is anglican (now anglo-sionist) and 5 centuries old.
This is exact , yet indefinite.
Interesting, but the bottom line is that the US is at the bottom of all this. Just as the British Empire before it in its era. As in any empire, the world is there to provide the US with its first world lifestyle and the US will fight no holds barred to preserve it. That’s something our European sychophantic politicians have yet to learn. Time for another revolution? This time against the ‘absolute monarcharchs’ of the European Union!
This ‘first world’ lifestyle being supplied in the US is being dwindled down through austerity and the bottom to the top reverse money funny money funnel they use and we will soon enough all be swimming in the same sea of shit the NWO is cooking up for We the People. At this point it is full steam ahead with no apologies to the starving and the homeless and increasingly desperate populations. and you betcha it is time for another revolution, I have long said unbridled Capitalism just creates through money monopoly thousands of Little Lord Fauntleroy’s, little would be Monarchs, who can buy anything with money that Kings used to perceive as their due. Here in the US we are aghast at what is in store for Europe, but personally I see the same treatment coming to the ‘homeland’ as early as next winter. What the Ponzi scheme fracking goes south where it is certainly headed, and the dollar become relatively worthless, where is the US going to get natural gas and oil products, they will be priced off the international market. Beggars all. The US public is in for a coming World of Hurt.
Everyone in the west is going to suffer. What most people may not know is that the EU, the UK, and the US, each have underfunded pensions in the billions of dollars they will not be able to service. The EU with the biggest amount. It was posited that the economies have to crash so they could institute a universal basic income because they can’t service the debt they owe to pensioners. Not in years away but soon. This information came out during the Investigative Corona Committee’s grand jury presentation they held for the world. It was headed by Reiner Fullmich, a German lawyer (who took on Duetche Bank and won), and 5 or six other attorneys, and a judge from South America. It was in respect to covid being planned. They had financial experts, Drs, former military, former WHO employees, former Pfizer executive, etc giving factual evidence. The website is grand-jury.net. If you look at the big picture, the west is on the verge of financial collapse, but what if that all this is being done intentionally, because they know it? The wealthy will always survive, but everyone else will not.
Cindy…. you just stated that “Covid was planned”…. You just lost any and ALL credibility… conspiracy sites luv that idiocy….
I spent many years living and working in China and although it sounds terrible to the ears of majority Americans, regulated capitalism Chinese style works. Of course, the bureacracy behind it is not something to admire and it’s a police state, but it’s much better than the dog-eat-dog society we live under in the west.
In 1839 Mikhail Lermontov wrote the novel ‘A Hero of Our Time’. The last story of this novel is called ‘The Fatalist’ – English translation here https://kittylevin.livejournal.com/29535.html – where a typical ‘Russian roulette’ event is being described (however without calling it ‘Russian Roulette’). So the strong denial that ‘Russian roulette’ never existed in Russia has to be contradicted with Mikhail Lermontov being the witness.
I seriously doubt any one leader or zny group of leaders can save the world from the current tyrannical regime, esp. when I see those leaders acting tyrannically against their own people: the West has actually adopted the way of their rivals (like cruel censorship and ostracization as in China). One group of tyrants will be replaced by another, sooner or later, and any window of freedom and justice opened will be quickly closed by new ruling elites. The only cure is for a radical mass change in humanity, and unfortunately there are too few pockets of awakened people, and they are not looking to grab power. I think hell is here, all the devils are here as Pepe Escobar quoted Shakespeare. This is the kingdom of Satan, to quote Jesus. Spiritual salvation cannot be found by changing rulers, all power grabbers are rotten.
“…not a step back” Russia. What they are left with are deniable terrorist acts & bluffs. Please, President Putin, give them a bloody dread & be certain, they have no guts to react. This one is Humanity´s Stalingrad, either she wins & survives or the Judeo-Saxons start staging the contours of their planned slavelandia for our progeny.
4. Another world; it seems to me those 87% of world population should do something about the bully who keeps picking fights and pushing them around. Or should i say THE bully with 7 big friends, AKA aircraft carrier groups. Whose in control of these 7 aircraft carrier groups?
Biden and his handlers ? If so wont at least 6 of these have to be sunk/disabled before THE bully will go home with his tail between his legs?
Im no military expert but ive heard stories about how even a single country like Iran could swarm an air craft carrier with dozens of missiles and torpedos all at once from various directions and be all but guaranteed to overwhelm the defenes and sink said aircraft carrier.
If 87% of bullied countries corordinated such a same day attack , all 7 THE bullys buddies/enforcers could be disabled in one day.
Im sure they would all need to take iimediate responsibility and make it clear 87% of countries were responsible to prevent an all out FULL RETARD nuclear assault on the entire non western world.
LETS GET IT ON !
You should rewatch The Matrix 1
Farmed zombies don’t know their status
Is there only death waiting lists in the UK?
In Spain, my 92-year-old mother has a medical appointment for a year from now.
Our political caste has sold (privatized) all the infrastructure created by generations of Spaniards, almost a century, to financial speculators.
The result is that Spaniards continue to vote enthusiastically for their liquidators…because they are democratic…and because Franco was a horrendous dictator who made Spain the eighth largest industrial power in the world and the sixth most prosperous economy until 1975. European Common Market. Estamos envainados carajo
España está jodidisima.Estuve en Agosto por allá y por lo poco que hable con los españoles sobre estos temas (y otros también), sospecho que gran parte de ellos no tiene la más reputisima idea de lo que está pasando.
Just a pity about the mass graves all over Spain that no one talks about.
I studied for a year in Madrid in 1965. Spain was certainly no workers paradise, nor an industrialists magnet. It was a poor, striving country, still recovering from the Civil War.
> denazified (rump) Ukraine?
Hmmm, and how will that be achieved? Short of Russia taking over entire Ukraine
and forcing the change.
There is no nuclear reaction below the critical mass.
When Nazistan go down to the level of being a giant farmland, a lot of population will migrate where it’s possible to assimilate them.
Then Nazistan will assimilate the same way they became nazi
… it’s not a gene
This war is no longer about Azov regiment and their CIA friends in Kiev. This war is so big all in tourist businesses will suffer from the consequences. Then all Germans will suffer. Because of some neo-nazis in Azov regiment? No.
“Italy is about to get a new, anti-Brussels nationalist government, ”
Sorry Batiushka but you have this one wrong. Meloni is Pro Nato, Pro US (she is a fellow of the Aspen Institute), Pro Israel (she said this quite clearly), Pro Euro and she already said that Italy is going to stay in the EU. With all this in mind, I would say she is a very “special” kind of nationalist. She also said that she is behind all those poor women who are protesting against the govermentg in Iran….(probably Meloni never heard about the term “colour revolutions”…) and she also said that she will keep the sanctions against Russia.
Italy is screwed. Winter is not going to be nice in Italy.
The enemy of our enemy is our friend. Then Meloni is our friend.
(using your own logic)
Very enjoyable article
Actually, the concept of Russian roulette comes from a 19th-century Russian novel by Lermatov, although the actual name is more recent.
As for what the USA and EU are playing, I think it’s more like high-stakes poker. The U.S. has a pair of deuces and is bluffing while going all in. But the bear doesn’t bluff and knows it can win it all and is steadily upping the ante.
What will happen when the bluff is finally called?
« 87.5% of the planet await the day of freedom from West »
SMO allows many things.
Often times it allows me to repeat to russians and chineses to STOP indulging US exceptionalism by designating USians with the word Americans.
It also allows to read how much ignorant are non-West population of the reality of West’s peasants.
It shouldn’t be , because since USSR collapse, West’s peasants status is declining SPECTACULARLY.
There NEVER was any such thing as westerners ruling the world.
Anglican Empire, with its anglican Emperor, rules the peasants of the world since five centuries … always in the same manner.
It amazes me how people who suffered Lenin are the least one to get it about universal class war.
RUSSIA IS NOW FREEING THE WHOLE WORLD.
That’s gonna make some History.
( still waiting to see China going further than final warning )
Stated by some analyst:
– US / NATO will create a false flag nuke detonation
That is why they prepare public for NATO having to use nukes?
(It is like Hoover telling Robert kennedy: In all cities there is some lone nuts with a diary (about wanting to murder the president))
Thank you for your comments. Here are answers to queries:
Yes, I am well aware that the new Italian government is anti-Russian, pro-Zelensky and pro-Israel. However, it is also Italian nationalist, anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant and Catholic, which is what is deeply disliked by Brussels. That was my point.
I am also well aware of Lermontov’s fictitious story about a Serbian who risks death by playing with a gun. (It is mentioned in the link to wikipedia). However, it is not called Russian roulette, it is a piece of fiction and you will find that it has been imitated by many people in the USA (again see the link). Only Russians who have read that short story by Lermontov will be aware of that piece of fiction.The average Russian certainly not.The average Anglo-American knows exactly what Russian roulette is. No non-English-speaking Russian has any idea what it means.
As regards Northern Ireland, you may be aware that when Truss went to Washington last week and paid homage to her feudal lord Biden, she was told in no uncertain terms that there would be no US backing for Britain not meeting the terms of the Northern Irish protocol, as signed off by Johnson with Brussels.
As for the awfulness of UK infrastructure, I think that problem has been perfectly well answered by English commentators. Having travelled all over Europe, it is difficult to find anything as awful, except perhaps on country roads on Moldova. As regards healthcare people who know fly to Latvia, Hungary, Romania and almost anywhere in Europe to get proper treatment.
Well…as an English commentator, I directly refute your inference. The NHS gives care priority to all that need it. My entire family, siblings and especially my aging parents receive all the medical care they need. Often 3 hospital specialist appointments per week plus home visiting nurses 3 times a week. As for roads, and I live in rural Devon…our roads are great, safe, sound without potholes, our A Roads compare and are often superior to most world Interstates and autobahns and our Motorways are also sound though congested. Sure, the M-! is bumpy, it’s concrete with freeze expansion joints but it is sound and safe. Railways and buses are on time…. I don’t know where you get your information but you might consider getting a more accurate source…and I have already challenged the few English commentators as bogus… I frequently drive from the Southwest to the Midlands. What they lament is imaginary… it isn’t at all as they construe… I wonder how many actually reside there….? there again, it’s a known fact amongst Brits that Brits DO like to complain…it’s a National heritage….or pastime….
Opinion: “The West” is not at war with Russia. “The West” is at war with Eurasia. The Nuland-Truss pipeline attack was not against Russia. It was against the Northwestern peninsula of Eurasia, Germany specifically but her neighbors as well.
“the gloomy darkness of the feudal Western elite”
I’ll vouch for that. I took a drive Monday into Medina, WA, where is the then-lovely Episcopal Church who encouraged and helped us raise our kids 30+ years ago. Medina is home to numerous super-rich now, the ones with private armies. Medina was, when we knew her, home to some old money and numerous post-WWII affluent grandparents and their children and grandchildren. Lots of cheerful children all over town. Charming homes of reasonable, usable size, cheerfully adorned with flowers, trees, and bird ponds.
Today the fronts of the main roads into Medina are girdled by surveillance so strong one can feel the radiation. The fear is palpable. But even more so, I realized, is the arrogance. Grass at the formerly beautiful and very large city park across from the Church is dried up, the lakes are overgrown with vegetation. We and our children used to watch blue herons fly in and out and fish there. There is no dearth of money in Medina.
So yeah, gloomy, but even more so, it struck me, arrogant . . . and fearful. Money is not important to these elites. Keeping hands on powers of government is important to them. Why? Because powers of government can be used to punish them for improper behavior ranging from unspeakable to mundane. Today, evidence of guilt girdles the fronts of the main roads into Medina. Political power is more important to elites there than any other kind, to keep themselves safe from prosecution and free of incarceration as well as abduction. The arrogance masks fear. Oh what a simple, sincere trip to the confessional would accomplish, to be shriven.
Those arrogant people in Medina are not where the power is.
They are but the upper caste of the Useful Idiot Class… You know their backyards are green, their ponds are fill with beautiful plants and koi, their kitchens manned by undocumented immigrants, their beds washed and made daily, etc… their virtue signalling if for their public personna, not for their own private lives.
The real power is tucked away and not much in Washington St… Perhaps Bill Gates and a few other of his cohorts, but pretty much they are not there… and for sure you don’t see them.
Medina, and all the Northwest used to be such a nice, relaxed, provincial place 40 years ago when I knew it. Today, it seems like it has been overrun by people who make the San Franciskovich apparatchiks look like laisez fair libertarians. If SF is a lime, King County is a lime concentrated 10 times.
Sour people with no joy of life DEMANDING that you forsake any joy in your life. While, at the same time, hiding their own joys. Typical NIMBY.
And think.. the current people in the Pacific NW don’t know how to drive in the rain anymore.
It is sad… it used to be so nice. I used to love going to Seattle and drinking beer when they repelled the old 3.2 rule.
Hmm.. perhaps the Westerners and North Americans (*) will also be freed of the yoke of the money changers and globalists?
(*) I sure hope that Southern American poster that complained earlier is happy about my not overusing the “American” term. But then, the Left is used to that… after all, aren’t Egyptians and Moroccans “African” too?
My only comment is in relation to this line: “Seven billion of the eight billion people of the world, 87.5% of the planet, await the day of freedom from Western imperialism, exploitation and nuclear threats, aspiring to humanity, truth, justice and prosperity”
I believe that much of the working class in the remaining 12.5% of the world also yearn for this freedom but through defeatism, propaganda, ignorance, and/or apathy do not believe there is anything they can do beyond struggling to feed their family. The Saker et al are not on Netflix so I have very little ability to steer others towards a different and I believe greater truth and understanding of what is going on in the World.
I’ve been thinking about this…. why is the UK so deeply involved in the Ukraine?
Then it dawned on me: Follow The Money.
The globalists and money changers: The Money Cabal, are all loosely based around London. They are the ones that have usurped control of the USA political class as well as the EU. it is not Washington DC or Brussels that controls this…
Thus the UK has a disproportionate amount of control over the World. The Money Cabal has a field office in Switzerland, but that’s because the food is better in the Alps.
The Money are the cause of all of this Evil. The Green Agenda, the Wuhan Virus lockdowns, the Leftists.. they are but tools of the Money. The Money doesn’t care about the value of currencies, the freedom and happiness of people. they want to CONTROL the World, and thus OWN it. Free and happy people can not be tolerated.
Putin and Russia refused to play. The “Red” (*) Chinese have been tolerated so far -they are authoritarian and concerned with the daunting task of feeding billions of people. BRICS was a danger but under Trump, it wasn’t need, but then The Money removed Trump even if doing so destroyed the Republic of the USA. The Money doesn’t care. They see authoritarian policies as fundamental to their achievement of The Money Nirvana.. wherein a very Inner Party is paid off to ensure the top 0.000001% of the population lives a life of incredible luxury while the Outer Party and the Plebes scrounge for tidbits on the ground.
So, bottom line… The Money is facing a Clear And Present Existential Danger with BRICS… and Putin is currently the BRICS Champion. If Russia wins, the UK based The Money loses, and that wipes out the UK from the World Forums into a backward neo-3rd World Country.
And we can’t have Oceania lose, now can we?
So, The Money is pushing against Russia and Ukraine is the battleground that they both chose.
Unfortunately for The Money, IMHO, while The Money has banks, insurance companies, paper gold, the Russkies have their own banks, their own insurance companies and Real gold. And, btw, they got industries that actually produce stuff, something The Money only “controls” but have no physical control.
Remove the The Money’s control over those industries and you find out that a Gold Paper Note is meaningless against the onslaught of Russky guided missiles and a battery of howitzers operating 10 miles away, over out of sight, and beyond the ridge.
(*) The Commies in China long ceased to be communist, they are outright fascist… indeed, they are full on Nazis in that they are both Nationalist and Socialist. And they persecute and promulgate genocide. Nice, Huh? -NOT.
So what is the enigma here? Someone commented on another article that this was all planned long ago or the plans are deeper than the surface appears. Former German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, was all in for NS2, along with approval needed by Denmark, Sweden, Poland, and a few others. Why did she step down in October of 2021? It was then everything seemed to fall apart. Who is knowledgeable about the financial situation of these govts and if that is a causative factor for all of this? Follow the money usually provides the answer. Michael Hudson would be good to hear from again on this issue.
I found this interesting video (speaking in Russian, Italian subtitles) published from a famous, dead, Italian blogger (Giulietto Chiesa) in 2014.
The link is accessible through Telegram Messenger
This is the Post translation
EXCEPTIONAL RUSSIAN VIDEO FROM 2014 THAT WAS RELEASED BY THE GREAT JULIET CHURCH ON PANDORA TV.
I considered it the best video ever produced, at least at the time. It was 2014, and Russia released this amazing video (also from a technical point of view) to stop a social revolt about what was happening in Donbass.
The Russians, shocked by the events in Maidan and by the persecution against the Russian speakers of the Ukrainian region, were clamoring for a military intervention from Moscow to save those people.
But Moscow could not intervene, and thus explained it to its citizens and to half the world.
The video was in fact translated into many languages, had tens of millions of views, but today it is almost impossible to find.
Thanks to Mr. Mishkin and Kaspercarlo for finding it in Italian.
Read the text in the subtitles (as well as admire the creative video quality): the Russians already in 2014 knew exactly what is happening today.
You are not a chess champion by chance.
Ah, this author is very good. Thank you for another article so well written and filled with insight.
Good stuff, my only fear Russians will get derailed by talking to the vultures.
Never sit at the Devil’s table.
Violence is the only answer, the same violence “abundant” west has been using for centuries.
Murder, rape, theft, torture, oppression…you name it.
Cut them of, isolate them, stop world resources pouring into their lands, 7 billion people can do it against 1 billion, ain’t that the democracy, no?
If the wicked choose to go WMD route, no problem there.
Last but not least, every square meter of rouge commie/anglosaxon construct aka ukraine must disappear from Earth, and become what it was for centuries.
For 20 years or so we’ve been bombarded by MSM with the meme of ‘loose cannon’ DPRK when we all know (well the enlightened among us) that the ‘loose cannon’ (with nukes) is really America.
Kim’s father’s last words on his deathbed were, at any cost, hang onto those nukes son.
There’s no doubt Russia and Iran’s blossoming relations is a poisoned chalice for Israel. Both Israel and America (and the US shadow Elite) are not only concerned about Russia-Europe economic cooperation but also Iran-Saudi detente.
Hence the latest skulduggery and provocative inuendo emanating from USA & vassals.
If every country in the world built a wall around themselves, very few could maintain themselves. Among the larger economies Russia and Iran are the two standouts. Between them they hold around 55% of proven gas reserves and with the additional territories recently required, 50% of the grain/fertiliser production. Iran is now a proven trusted partner who’ve suffered at the hands of the devil’s spawn for decades, but survived, more than survived, grew its economy, strengthened its defences and like Russia, has the potential to grow 10% + year on year, developing its energy, chemical, tech and Agri industries.
Russia plus Iran and Allies are exactly where the Old Empire aspire to return to, The Golden Years/Era, regrettably long since gone.
America and its regional Pitbull, Israel are no match for Russia & Iran, all it would take is for Russia and Iran to build a nuclear facility in Iran, checkmating any further threat from the Axis-of-Evil and highly likely to discourage further erratic belligerent and illegal behaviour from the Old-Empire.
Many God fearing Americans are looking forward to the ‘Almighty’ using the Orthodox Christian nation of Russia to lead the way in delivering the world from the current evil that has beset it.
The bible tells us that there will be no thieves in heaven. Thieves in the U.S. have tried to make a mockery of the U. S. Constitution. This underlying movement first became overt when the U.S. Supreme (?) Court refused to uphold prayers in public schools in the 1960’s.
Once the U.S. began to turn away from God, this breach in the dam began to grow bigger and bigger. To the point now where their demonic voices have eager hopes that they can convince us that men can become pregnant, that it is OK to kill newborn babies weeks after their successful childbirth, that it is OK to counsel a young child to have sex-change operations which are irreversible.
Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin signed a law into effect that makes homosexual marriage illegal. It is also illegal in Russia to encourage young children and try to groom them into becoming homosexuals.
This is not the same Russia that I fought against in the cold war (65-69) as a young petty officer in the Naval Security Group. There are people trying to surreptitiously steal control of our country from within, who appear to hate our country, and are doing their best to try and destroy it.
They have made a mockery of serving in our military. Do you think any of us back then would have saluted a male Admiral who walked into our spaces wearing a dress ? Any guesses as to why our military can’t meet it’s recruitment quotas now days ? Besides that and the experimental death vaccines, my dog (if I had one), could put two and two together and tap out 4.
Back in the 60’s we still frailly held onto the higher moral ground over the former Soviet Union. It appears that everything has flipped now. This group of young upstarts in the U.S. today have become wise in their own conceits, and in their arrogance have no idea what they have stumbled into.
The Russians are a very hardy people, and they defeated Germany for us in WW2. They used the Russian winter and Hitler’s refusal to allow his generals to perform tactical withdrawals to grind down his troops and defeat them.
Speaking of winter, has anyone heard any updates on the soon arrival of General Winter ?
Russians have been known to stand outside in long lines in the winter during a blinding snowstorm to purchase ice cream.
Their women have been known to carry large sacks of dirty laundry as they work their way down to the frozen river where they break through the ice so they can wash their clothes in the river in winter.
Our prayers are with you and your family Andrei as God brings you through this momentary adversity.
Bravo Batiushka… so very well said!
I love your concluding paragraph… this is the entire current Ukraine/Russian situation in a nutshell.
Winston Churchill was just another piece in the puzzle that helped set up the 118-year-old bankers’ war that to this day still rages. He was in essence just another arsonist who assisted in lighting the bushfire that led to the incredible destruction of WW2. Then as UK PM, he posed as a heroic firefighter leading the battle to save Britain from the very monster that he had a hand in creating.
Along the way, humanity fancied that they won the larger battles. We didn’t, because we never bothered to identify or dispose of the real enemy… the bankers and their proxies that transcend all geographical or sovereign boundaries. They always morph into separate guises and have operated for centuries, if not millennia, pulling the strings from the shadows of their transitory bases… just as they continued to do so post WW1 and WW2.
Be it from Rome, Venice, the City of London, or Wall Street, they continue to ply their age-old trade. Covid the global aperitif, then the smorgasbord of toxic bioweapons, and now, lo and behold the Ukraine debacle… these are just the latest instalments in the mayhem and the continual battles that they contrive in this perpetual war.
Their ultimate quest is not money, but power and control over the masses. As you allude to in your essay, this power gives them the means to run counterfeit printing presses and create debt-based currencies. This is their main control mechanism and the key tool they used to achieve what became a neo-feudal/technocratic hegemony that is both military and financial in its manifestations.
This is precisely why Mainstreet must celebrate the enormous progress of the BRIICS+++ initiatives, and the inspiration and drive that Putin and his incredibly talented team… this is now empowering as much as 90% of the world’s population.
Putin and his team have the presence of mind and of course both the courage and conscience, to not only identify this scourge, but to deal with it once and for all.
This is an international terrorist ring. Just as any organisation, regardless of whether they are in the mountains of Afghanistan, or interlaced through the populations of much of the western world, the best way to deal with them is to remove their funding source.
This is what is happening right now, and it will be a team effort to render all of the Zone A assets and institutions increasingly irrelevant. This includes the private central banking cabal consisting of the BIS and its 62 member central banks.
Coordinated de-dollarisation will gradually remove the reserve and default currency status of the US dollar and the TBTF banking corporations will begin to fall as well. So too the IMF and the World Bank will be eventually remembered as merely predatory loan shark divisions of the soon-to-be zombie Zone A hegemon.
Thankfully, Putin’s biggest ally has been the procession of incredibly despotic and incompetent fools like Biden, Truedough, Commissar Vaxcinder, Scholz, etc. Now just to cap it all off, the archetypically gormless Miss Trust is wheeled out… she could well go down in history as the ultimate own-goal scorer in the entire Zone A kleptocrat’s team of imbeciles.
And the beat goes on
I wish more people clearly understood what you reveal concerning the tremendous power the private banking cabal exerts in its quest to increase the power of their money monopoly by creating money ex nihilo as debt.
But what about the BRICS banks with regard to money creation?
Will it also be under private banker ownership ?
Or is it all just a delusion?
– to increase the power of their money monopoly by creating money ex nihilo as debt.
I prefer this description (sorry headline is in big letters)
A WARNING FROM THE PAST? THIS SPEECH FROM A 1981 MOVIE GIVES CHILLING DESCRIPTION OF OUR WORLD AND T
I think much of current events are about preventing the Eastern and Western parts of the American Empire of breaking loose from the core. The natural place for the Eastern part, continental Europe is withing the Eurasian space. For the Western part, it belongs with the East-Asia/Eurasia.
Realising that the battle with the external world is lost for the moment, it will more be a question of keeping the Empire together, rebuilding in the hope of living to fight another day.
The time is however up for the spirit it represents, and it’s 1000 year history will be wiped from the pages of time as nothing but a bad dream. A nightmare. Only the myths will survive.
