“For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light”
Holy Gospel according to Saint Luke (8:17)
“There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.”
George W Bush
In April of 2014 I wrote an article entitled “How the Ukrainian crisis will eventually bring down the AngloZionist Empire” in which I made a list of the similarities between the Soviet Union of the 1980s and Obama’s USA and wrote the following:
What the AngloZionist are openly and publicly defending in the Ukraine is the polar opposite of what they are supposed to stand for. That is an extremely dangerous thing to do for any regime and the AngloZionist Empire is no exception to that rule. Empire often crumble when their own people become disillusioned and disgusted with massive discrepancy between what the ruling elites say and what they do. And as a result, it is not so much that the Empire is faced with formidable enemies as it is the fact that nobody is willing to stand up – nevermind die – in defense of it.
Over two years later, watching the Presidential race between Trump and Hillary I am amazed to see how deep and “in your face” the habit of lying, denying the obvious, deceiving and otherwise misrepresenting has permeated the US political discourse.
First and foremost, there is the absolutely unabashed way the corporate Ziomedia is bashing Trump without even so much as a pretense of objectivity or truthfulness. Of course, I always new that the US propaganda machine was lying and that the media was owned by the US deep state, but at least there was this thin veneer or pseudo-objectivity, of having “both sides” heard. Now this is over. When dealing with Trump, we have Orwell’s “Two Minutes of Hate” but spread over 24/7. Not that Trump does not deserve some of it, he sure does, but compared to how real scumbags like the Clintons are treated, the lynching of Trump is, I believe, unprecedented and unique. Why does it matter? Because now the masks have been taken off, the pretenses removed, and what you see is the true face of the corporate media as it always was: hateful, hypocritical and totally corrupted. And since a truly free and independent media is central to a functioning democracy, then the total corruption of the media in the USA is also the proof that this country does not have a functioning democracy.
Second, there are the completely surreal events happening in Syria: the US betrayal of the agreement signed with Russia, the US threats to attack Syria (in total illegality), the crocodile tears about the humanitarian situation in Aleppo (and the blind eye to Yemen), the mind-blowing hypocrisy of the USA wanting to take the Syrians and the Russians to an international criminal court for war crimes, the now absolutely open support for al-Qaeda (aka al-Nusra, aka Jabhat Fateh al-Sham aka Daesh) and the threats to arm them, the open threats by Admiral Kirby to have Russian aircraft shot down, Russian cities bombed and Russians soldiers come back in body bags – we now see an Administration which has gone completely “mental” over Syria and which does not even know what it is doing. To say that the 1000-4000 US servicemen and contractors currently deployed in Syria are “serving their country” or “defending democracy” or “our way of life” is simply laughable and everybody knows that. But nobody says a word about it. In fact, their presence in Syria is hardly ever mentioned.
This Kafkaesque slouching towards war with Russia is simply never discussed by any pundit or media outlet. It’s like it’s not happening, but of course it is happening, right before our eyes. The Russian officials speak about this every day, so does the Russian media, it is one of the most discussed topics on TV, and yet in the “land of the brave home of the free” this is a kind of Orwellian “untopic” which, by consensus, has no existence, no reality and no relevance: The Neocons’ crazy policies risk turning the USA into a gigantic pile of radioactive ashes, but the topic which preoccupies everybody is Trump’s potty-mouth about women.
I don’t know about you, but I see more nobility in the Titanic’s chamber orchestra playing the waltz “Songe d’Automne” as long as the ship could still float then in the pathetic spectacle which the (equally sinking) AngloZionist Empire offers to us today.
On the external front, the Empire is also doubling down on its lies. Here are a few headlines which were recently seen in 5th columnist newspapers in Russia and their colleagues abroad:
|“Patriarch Kirill bans abortions in Russia”||Patriarch Kirill, along with other religious leaders, signed a statement saying that abortions should not be paid for by the state.|
|“Russian women will be forced to give birth”|
|“Employees will be fired for using Whatsapp or similar messaging services”||State employee are banned from using messaging services to transmit work-related or classified information.|
|“Tolstoi and Dostoevsky are now banned from Russian schools”||Various officials are discussing in what grade Russian classical authors should be studied.|
These are just a few recent examples. Such garbage is published by the pro-western “yellow” press in Russia and by the western corporate media on an almost daily basis.
Of course, the Neocons have always ruled “by way of deception”, as did the Anglo rulers of the British Empire, but in modern Russia they are now hitting a number of obstacles which greatly complicates their work:
1) Putin has done an excellent job slowly but surely booting out the worst russophobes from the main Russian TV and radio channels. Of course, some are left, very deliberately (I explain the reason for that in detail here) but they surely don’t control the media like they did in the 1990s.
2) In the age of the Internet, it takes just days to debunk the lies of Uncle Sam, the Neocons or the Russian 5th columnists (for the latest example see here).
3) Russians remember the 1990s and they follow very closely what is happening across the border in the Nazi occupied Ukraine and they realize that what the Ukraine is undergoing today is what Russia had to suffer in the 1990s and would have to live through again if the pro-western forces ever came back to power. In a way, you could say that the Russians have been “vaccinated” against the AngloZionist propaganda.
I think that while the situation is still much worse in the USA, there are also some very encouraging signs that the lies are beginning to wear off. While there are still millions who believe the Idiot-Box or simply don’t have the energy to think any more, there are also millions who are thoroughly disillusioned, cynical, disgusted and angry at the parasitic elites which rule over them. By and large, the corporate media is deeply distrusted. As for journalists, they are about as respected as lawyers and medical doctors (amazing how these two noble professions got completely discredited by their practitioners in just a few decades!). We can speculate for hours over whether Trump still has a chance to win the next election or not, but I submit that, judging by their panicked actions, the Neocons clearly believe that he might. And that terrifies them. The are clearly afraid that those whom they consider as their dumb serfs might revolt against their rule (as has happened so many times in history).
I know that there are many out there who do not trust Trump. And I agree with them. I don’t trust him either. However, while I do not “trust” Trump, I admit that it is possible that he really might be a President who would put the interests of the American people first, and the interests of the AngloZionist Empire a distant second. The history of empires is full of situations were one part of the ruling class turned against the other one (SA vs SS, Trotskists vs Stalinists, etc.). There is no reason to dismiss a priori the possibility that there is a schism inside the US deep state, that one part wants to save the Empire as the expense of the USA (the Neocons) and another wants to save the USA at the expense of the Empire (the Trump supporters). Again, I did not say that this is likely, only that I admit that this is possible. And if that is really a possibility, could it not also be possible that the American people would deliberately vote against their own mass media and political elites, just like the British people chose the Brexit in total defiance of the official doxa? That all the Trump-bashing actually could help him get elected?
Could it be that after losing Russia to their lies, the Neocons will now lose the United States to their apparently incurable propensity to rule by deception?
For years I used to dismiss the US Presidential elections like a joke, a fraud and an exercise in collective brainwashing. This time around, and for the first time, I think that there is a possibility, however slim, that something of importance might be decided on November 8. The fact that such a possibility even appeared is, by itself, quite remarkable and it is yet another sign of how deep the systemic crisis of the Empire has become. As for the parasites who form the 1% who run this Empire, they are clearly in a panic mode, probably because they are much better informed than most of us of how truly catastrophic the situation really is.
A Hillary victory will not change any of it. It will only make it much, much more dangerous. With Trump, there is at least a possibility of a gradual, more or less organized withdrawal, a drawdown of sorts, a transition of the USA from being a wannabe World Hegemon into a USA as a major, but “normal”, country. Very much like Russia today, I hope.
With Hillary we can be sure the Empire will double down, continue to lie to itself and the rest of the planet, and deny it all, making the end inevitably very violent, possibly catastrophic. I would not put it past the “crazies in the basement” to prefer a nuclear holocaust (their favorite topic!) to a liberation of the USA, and the rest of the planet, from their demonic power. It is therefore our duty to prevent them from succeeding from destroying our planet.
“As for the parasites who form the 1% who run this Empire, they are clearly in a panic mode, probably because they are much better informed than most of us of how truly catastrophic the situation really is.”
The panic is palpable.
You guys seen this? Putin is summoning home the relatives of state-employees from the west, such as children studying abroad, if they do not return their relatives they will have a hard time finding work in Russia in the future.
The ‘Daily Mail’ are you serious, you got stop reading rags there champ….the daily mail ahahahahahbawaha, hilarious.
Too funny. The Daily Mail could’nt find a scoop in a box of Kellog’s Raisin Bran…and there two in there.
This article doesn’t mention the ‘Russian’ troops that have been here for a while. Everything I’ve read says they speak perfect Russian. Does anyone know whether they are from Russian or the Ukraine, and are they government troops or mercenaries?
Their presence is being used to promote anti-Russian sentiment (The Common Sense Show, for example), and I’m curious.

“United Nations Soldier Says They Will Soon Occupy America: “Going Door-to-Door Taking Guns Or Shooting To Kill”
Maybe this is better:
It says civil service employment may be affected if the order is violated. Threats against family members in enemy territory a powerful weapon.
This allegation is based on nothing. Some journalist clams to have spoken to 5 Russian officials (anonymous) who told her this is being discussed. Well, you can come up with all sorts of ideas and make up all kind of stories based on talks with fictitious people. So, there is no document or any kind of paper confirming this. With real names. So, another one big lie!
@ vot tak
The aristocrats are better informed, in that the everyday man in the US has no idea what they currently gain from empire or what they are set to loose should they loose it.
In 1913 here in the England the aristocrats went to war to defend our empire when Germany made a bid for an overland route to the oil fields of Iraq, the Persian Gulf and quick access to the jewels of our empire -E Africa and India. We had the mistaken belief that a win at any price would allow England to restore the status quo post-conflict. WE LOST EVERYTHING. Hereabouts there were many vast country houses of successful empire families with great land holdings, full gun rooms, who ate of silver (silver was money in 1913 – think of the imagery), kept large households and estates. We were the hated and cruel world leaders, immeasurably wealthier than the US is today. We emptied our treasuries and youth into the first and second WW. By 1945 thousands of those immortal houses were lumps in meadow land, not a stone standing; the families and their fortunes gone. For 14 years to 1954 the whole nation had to queue for basic food. We shared diseases among the poor with the poorest parts of the world. We lost our empire, our revenue, our world market, our young.
We did manage, however, to pass the baton of empire to the USA. They have in turn bankrupt themselves with a first round of major wars and interventions, and are now are about to embark on their second round to try to restore an irretrievable pre-empire status quo.
Empire has only two choices – rule everything or die violently. None have succeeded at the first, including the US.
What you American readers need to understand and do is what our British leaders failed to do in 1914 – force your government to recognize that the natural and unstoppable dynamic shift in power in the world needs to be acknowledged, and if you are to survive at all, they need to put all their effort into re-negotiating a place among, not at the head of, the new world architecture. ie. to acknowledge that the good times are over. Either that, or be prepared to send your sons and daughters into battle, and these days sacrifice your cities and land, to defend the indefensible. Which is sadly what looks likely to happen.
If there is one remaining thing I recognise and admire in Yanks is that they can get busy. Get busy turning the head of your government – Trump or Clinton, they are both the same – cos’ you are about to loose EVERYTHING.
“What you American readers need to understand and do is…force your government to recognize that the natural and unstoppable dynamic shift in power in the world needs to be acknowledged”
Oh! eager words! thou dost gracefully part the veil of ignorance! With what glory does thine intent staunch the festering wounds and uplift the sorrowful masses. Would that ears could hear, that hearts could compel the mind to reason.
In which manner shall we choose our demise?
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
‘My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!’
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”
— Percy Bisshe Shelley
That is a good poem
I love Percy Bysshe Shelley. this is from Queen of the Faeries
“Of Man (man is dignified in this poem)
There’s not one atom of yon earth but once was living in man, not the minutest drop rain that hangeth in its thinnest cloud but flowed in human veins; and from the burning plains where Lybian Monsters fell, from the most gloomy glens of Greenlands’ sunless clime to where the golden fields of fertile England spread their harvest to the day, thou canst find one spot whereon no city stood.
How strange is human pride! I tell thee that those living things, to whom the fragile blade of grass that springeth in the morn and perisheth ere noon, is an unbounded world. I tell thee that those viewless beings whose mansion is the smallest particle of the impassive atmosphere, think, feel and live like man, that their affections and antipathies like his, produce the laws ruling their moral state; and the minutest throb that through their frame diffuses the slightest motion, is fixed and indispensible as the majestic laws that rule yon rolling orbs.
Of Monarchs (the fool that courtiers call King)
Behold a gorgeous palace that amid yon populous city, rears its thousand towers and sums itself a city, gloomy troops of centinels, in stern and silent ranks, encompass it around; the dweller there cannot be free and happy, hearest thou not the curses of the fatherless, the groans of those who have no friend?
The King, wearer of a golden chain that binds his soul to abjection, miserable, [degradedness, lacking self-respect, wretchedness] the fool, whom courtiers nickname Monarch, whilst a slave even to the basest appetites – that man heeds not the shrieks of penury [extreme poverty, lack of necessities], he smiles at the curses which the destitute mutter in secret and a sullen joy pervades his bloodless heart when thousands groan but for those morsels which his wantonness wastes in unjoyous revelry, to save all that these love from famine, when he hears the tale of horro, to some ready-made face of hypocritical assent, he turns smothering the glow of shame that spite of him, flushes his bloated cheek.
Of Drones (ngo’s and government staff, armies of tyrants and the women who support them)
Those gilded flies that basking in the sunshine of a court, fatten on its corruption. What are they? The drones of the community, they feed on the mechanics labor; the starved hind for them compels the stubborn glebe to yield its unshared harvests; and yon squalid form, leaner than fleshless misery, that wastes a sunless life in the unwholesome mine, drags out in labour a protracted death, to glut their grandeur; many faint with toil that few may know the cares and woe of sloth.”
The Third Reich started planning for their return as a Fourth Reich/Illuminati/elite alliance before the end of WWII. FDR’s Undersecretary of State Sumner Welles published this fact in “Time for a Decision” in 1944. Around half a million Nazis went underground in 1943, in addition to the thousands who immigrated to the US with the help of OSS/CIA director Dulles and in addition to the Gehlen Organization’s integration into US intelligence to provide intel on communists.
“The Power Elite and the Secret Nazi Plan”, Dennis Cuddy.
The UN published its plan to reestablish the British Empire in 1991, prior to the Des Moines UNCED meeting:
“We are the living sponsors of the great Cecil Rhodes will of 1877, in which Rhodes devoted his fortune to “The extension of British rule throughout the world… the colonization by British subjects of the entire Continent of Africa, the Holy Land, the Valley of the Euphrates, the islands of Cyprus and Candia [Crete], the whole of South America, the islands of the Pacific not heretofore possessed by Great Britain, the whole of the Malay Archipelago, the seaboard of China and Japan, the ultimate recovery of the United States of America as an integral part of the British Empire….
We stand with Lord Milner’s credo. We too, are “British Race Patriots” and our patriotism is “the speech, the tradition, the principles, the aspirations of the British Race.” Do you fear to take this stand, at the very last moment when this purpose can be realized? Do you not see that failure now, is to be pulled down by the billions of Lilliputians of lesser race who care little or nothing for the Anglo-Saxon system?”
This is the purpose of the global warming scam, unfortunately promoted on the Oceania website. I’m surprised that a $60 billion/yr program based on atmospheric physics that’s represented by a Malthusian entomologist, a weatherman with no training in science, and an ecologist isn’t recognized as political disinformation. Rockefeller’s Club of Rome, in “The First Global Revolution”, 1972, published the fact that its members came up with AWG as a disguise that would “fit the bill” for its global government and depopulation plan. naturalclimate.us
Anon (what else?) your ravings concerning anthropogenic climate destabilisation, which is happening all around us and is supported by science to a degree matched by few other bodies of research, reduces your other ‘interesting’ speculations to the ridiculous. Guilt by association, I fear.
Only the Deep State – of which Hillary is a zombie – will ever change her head. So find a hole to crawl into, people.
Excellent, a cautionary tale for all sane persons to read. Again, great post!!
“The panic is palpable.”
Hmm, not so fast.
If the piece Uncle Bob posted here http://thesaker.is/moveable-feast-cafe-2016-09-09/#comment-273886 is correct they are doing just fine & 100% on course – some quotes from there:
Who is breathing down Obama’s neck, as he stages a last-ditch effort to ratify the TPP and further bury US sovereignty under the weight of global corporations?
Who demands that more US jobs disappear overseas and never come back?
One group has been virtually forgotten. Its influence is enormous. It has existed since 1973.
It’s called the Trilateral Commission (TC).
Keep in mind that the original stated goal of the TC was to create “a new international economic order.”
In the run-up to his inauguration after the 2008 presidential election, Obama was tutored by the co-founder of the Trilateral Commission, Zbigniew Brzezinski.
Four years before birthing the TC with his boss of bosses, David Rockefeller, Brzezinski wrote: “[The] nation state as a fundamental unit of man’s organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force. International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation state.”
Goodbye, separate nations.
Any doubt on the question of TC goals is answered by David Rockefeller himself, the founder of the TC, in his Memoirs (2003): “Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
How does a shadowy group like the TC accomplish its goal? One basic strategy is: destabilize nations; ruin their economies; ratify trade treaties that effectively send millions and millions of manufacturing jobs off to places where virtual slave labor does the work; adding insult to injury, export the cheap products of those slave-factories back to the nations who lost the jobs and undercut their domestic manufacturers, forcing them to close their doors and fire still more employees.
And then solve that economic chaos by bringing order.
What kind of order?
Eventually, one planet, with national borders erased, under one management system, with a planned global economy, “to restore stability,” “for the good of all, for lasting harmony.”
Pushing through Globalist trade treaties: this is why he was put in the White House.
This is his appointed task.
This is his real job.
His bosses are watching.
“I pledge allegiance to the Trilateral Commission, and to the domination for which it stands, one planet, indivisible, with tyranny and poverty and top-down order for all…”
Show me some evidence that China or Russia (or anybody) are trying to break up the power of Global Corporations and then I may believe they are in the panic you refer to…problem is, even if you look hard – there isn’t any.
@ anon / Uncle Bob
Well, Russia have just outlawed GM food production and imports, in perpetuity. That’s a big swing at Monsanto’s cahones. They are also moving away from the dollar. It doesn’t get bigger than that.
To a degree I agree with the idea that all we are seeing is the bun fight between rival oligarchies fighting for a place at the top table of a global world order. But on the other hand, disagree. Russia and China fundamentally disagree with the structure the US is trying to impose. They both admit that the world is irreversibly integrating, but they argue 1. that this need not compromise sovereignty 2. that sovereignty and diversity is the root of stability 3. that interconnection of sovereign states through multilateral trade, currency swaps is the way to bring lasting peace. I agree that they are not fighting globalism – President Xi said at the G20 that world leaders must unite to ‘crush’ independence movements, including Brexit etc – but they are most certainly resisting and willing to fight the US’ preferred path because it requires becoming a vassal to an empire.
Perhaps you could consider further comment based on this https://www.corbettreport.com/episode-297-china-and-the-new-world-order/
“So we have on one hand the fiery and bellicose rhetoric of the would-be belligerents of the Cold War of the twenty-first century and on the other hand the conciliatory or even cooperative pronouncements of the usual gaggle of super gophers, the ‘Superclass’ identified by Henry Kissinger protege David Rothkopf in his recent book of the same name, that identified about 6,000 global actors able to implement transnational policy agendas, thanks to their political and financial influence.
I am referring of course to Antony C Sutton, the author of such trade books as Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler , Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution, Wall Street and FDR, but also the author of many scholarly publications, academic publications that were published under the auspices of the Hoover Institute in the 1970s and that have been well-regarded scholarly works that were even name-checked by the likes of Zbigniew Brzezinski as being convincing proof of the thesis that these books were forwarding. And that thesis revolved around the idea that, in the case of for example the Bolshevik Revolution and the rise of the Nazis, that it was the Western powers, specifically the financial center of Wall Street and the Wall Street bankers, who were helping to fund their supposed arch-enemies the socialists of various stripes whether that be the Bolsheviks or the National Socialists in Germany, for their own agenda purposes.
But the obvious question here is why. Why on earth would these crony capitalists be funding their erstwhile supposed nominal arch nemesis rival enemies, their sworn enemies, the Socialists? These are directly contradictory ideologies and viewpoints and economic systems. Why on earth would the capitalists be supporting the Socialists in various countries?
This seems completely nonsensical if we look at it from that, again, two dimensional surface level reality, but if we extend this out again into the three-dimensional hierarchical reality we start to realize that there are agendas that can be served by the crony capitalists supporting command-and-control economical structures and political authoritarian structures in various countries.”
That is an opinion, as is mine, I suppose. I have and do work with a few of some of the most powerful tech and finance moguls on the planet, in their homes. I have a friend who was in the room when the secrative head of one of the largest hedge funds in the world was bawling down the telephone at Sarkozy, then President, telling him what he wanted. I can garantee you that Western capitalists rarely collude except on money making deals: some are ruled by Darwinian survival of the fittest / individualist / dog eat dog mentality, meaning that opening themselves to possibly trasonable (company or national level) behaviour will be used as a knife against themselves. Many of them are just supremely intelligent, cultured and benign people. With the exception of Israelis. They are most interesting, do collude and engineer, but the goal is more insane than the Scientologists to the point of being a neurosis. Sit in a room of bankers and you know they do not cooperate, either because they are decent or because they are too savage. Sit in a room with politicians and you will understand that you are watching the interplay between a complex network of secrets that guarantee mutually assured destruction, which leads to total paralysis of action. Collusion is almost impossible.
The money that flowed to the Nazi’s and Stalinists simultaneously was venture capital, which knows no borders and is the oil of destruction – see the IMF’s loans prolonging the Ukraine crisis. The Council for Foregn relations and its kin, including the Rockerfellers, Brezinsky, etc.. are Empire policy makers and co-operate so long as the Empire is there to build and profit from. But even Brezinsky has said the chance has gone: http://www.unz.com/mwhitney/the-broken-chessboard-brzezinski-gives-up-on-empire/ In here he talks about co-operation with Russia and China. That says it all. A globalist world, certainly, but not as the American’s wanted to build it.
Interesting again (yes, opinion is mostly all we have). I know what you mean, my brother is VP Finance for a global biotech.
Do you imagine the think tanks do not collude or set policy either e.g. http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-economic-corporate-oligarchy-of-the-world/5386794 ?
Some more quotes:
“A recent study conducted by Northwestern and Princeton University on America’s political system supports the thesis that political systems are not directed by the people of the country, but rather by a network of “economic elites” and “business interests”. The study concluded that the US political system is an oligarchy, where the “wishes of corporations and business and professional associations” are the driving forces behind policy decisions within the government.
“The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organised groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence” (Gilens and Page, 2014, p.3).
The father of the CFR is the British based Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) which is headquartered at Chatham House in St James’s Square, London. Growing out of the Cecil Rhodes Secret Society and the Lord Alfred Milner Group, the RIIA was formed in 1919 by Lionel Curtis and fellow members of the Milner Group:
“In 1919 they founded the Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House) for which the chief financial supporters were Sir Abe Bailey and the Astor family (owners of The Times). Similar Institutes of International Affairs were established in the chief British dominions and in the United States (where it was known as the Council on Foreign Relations) in the period 1919-1927” (Quigley, 1966, p. 132).
These organisations are composed of inner circles and outer circles, with the larger institutes serving as a front organisation for the inner circle who direct the group. This has been the case since RIIA was established as a front organisation for the Milner Group in 1919:
“The Milner Group controls the Institute. Once that is established, the picture changes. The influence of Chatham House appears in its true perspective, not as the influence of an autonomous body but as merely one of the many instruments in the arsenal of another power” (Quigley, P.197, 1981).
Lord Alfred Milner and Cecil Rhodes both shared an ethos that British expansionism would lay the foundation for a world system that was to come in the future:
“The goals which Rhodes and Milner sought and the methods by which they hoped to achieve them were so similar by 1902 that the two are almost indistinguishable. Both sought to unite the world, and above all the English-speaking world, in a federal structure around Britain. Both felt that this goal could best be achieved by a secret band of men united to one another by devotion to the common cause and by personal loyalty to one another. Both felt that this band should pursue its goal by secret political and economic influence behind the scenes and by the control of journalistic, educational, and propaganda agencies” (Quigley, 1981, P.49).”
I agree these are dangerous, collusive organs and consequences of empire and debt based economies – power coalescing into the hands of the few. However, these are precisely the institutions that have failed in their grand plan for global empire. Globalism is not over, but the globe controlled and dictated by one nation and elite is.
Have you ever read the following? http://www.voltairenet.org/article187947.html The section titled ‘Sir Halford Invents Geopolitics’ explains very clearly the framework for Anglo Saxon global control and empire building. It is an excellent explanation of geopolitics and current affairs from such a high vantage point that all the distracting details disappear. Measuring the current global situation against this leads to a simple conclusion that the days of anglo saxon control are not doomed, but over already. Many people will blame Putin, China, etc for this, or blame the hubris of the Americans. Neither. It was the internet. This discussion and fact sharing between you and I, total strangers, is how and why it ended. My buying goods from Germany on overnight delivery is why it is over. We are not witnessing a failure of empire, but rather watching it move out of the imperialists hands by means that they cannot control, namely, you and I. The Russians and the Chinese are ahead of the west in recognising that the future is about allowing that to happen and facilitating it by constructing an open physical and electronic network of inter-dependent sovereign nations.
Here’s a thought. The most unconvincing thing about disaster movies involving sinister aliens with evil intent is that evil is, at its very core, divisive and destructive. A ship of evil could not last the journey without them killing one another. The same applies to Empires, and organisations like the CFR. If they are not or do not remain fundamentally good, they cant survive.
“My buying goods from Germany on overnight delivery is why it is over. We are not witnessing a failure of empire, but rather watching it move out of the imperialists hands by means that they cannot control, namely, you and I. The Russians and the Chinese are ahead of the west in recognising that the future is about allowing that to happen and facilitating it by constructing an open physical and electronic network of inter-dependent sovereign nations.”
Unfortunately, we are witnessing the success of the empire – just by a different name. The Global elite now have more wealth than ever. The off-shoring strategy is quickly reducing what little bargaining power the national masses historically had to zero – the future can be imagined in what we already see in Bangladesh.
The Chinese elite are either
(i) working along with the plan that Uncle Bob described i.e. to enable off-shoring to their lowest global cost-centre
(ii) taking unilateral advantage of their national population to provide slave labour to the globe
In either case the Chinese elite (together with their worldwide brethern) take advantage of rising Global stock prices (e.g Apple) by the minimisation of Chinese Labour Costs (e.g. Foxconn)
The results are this:
“The number of dollar billionaires in China is growing despite a 20 percent drop in the domestic stock markets and the economic slowdown, the Hurun Report shows. China now tops the US in the number of billionaires.”
In other words – even if it is interdependent Sovereign (Capitalist) nations the problem remains (by design or otherwise) at an accelerating rate & it will take more than you & I being able to discuss this to sort it out.
Thanks for the voltaire link – I will read it soon.
Anthony Sutton was the most obsessive author I’ve ever read in his documentation of the information contained in his books.He didn’t publish conjecture or subjective arguments; not an opinionated author. He not only listed all references, he published photocopies of documents he referred to.
I’m surprised at Corbett’s naivete; I know he’s familiar with the use of Hegelian dialectic, and I’d be surprised if he’s unaware that the Rothschilds and other bankers have historically armed and financed both sides in wars they’ve fomented. Ideology is a tool that’s routinely exploited to increase wealth and power. I wonder if Corbett believes that George Soros, Romanian Iron Fist member who worked with Adolph Eichmann and a member of the International Crisis Group, an organization that studies the manufacture and management of crises, is sincerely concerned with the welfare of blacks in the US. Possibly he believes that the Coudenhove-Kalergi principle, genocide through immigration, is really in use in the EU and Scandinavia as a demonstration of governments’ support for the violent gang-rape of their citizens. Weakening a target nation through the creation of civil unrest and/or demoralizing economic hardship is military strategy to facilitate regime change. I wonder if Corbett recognizes the impact of the crash of oil prices on the Russian economy, and his interpretation of the impact of current sanctions. Corbett is a very intelligent person, and so is his co-reporter, Sibel Edmonds, and I’m confused by his statements you’ve quoted.
“I wonder if Corbett recognizes the impact of the crash of oil prices on the Russian economy, and his interpretation of the impact of current sanctions.”
One thing is for sure, if some of this analysis from the dark side is correct http://carnegie.ru/commentary/?fa=61005
“The growing discontent inside the Russian elite shows that this attempt is having some effect. There is more to this than the fact that some members of the Russian ruling class are being forced to schedule routine medical operations in Israel rather than in Germany, or the seizure of bank accounts and real estate assets that are fairly unimportant for their owners.”
Then it is a minor inconvenience for them compared to that foisted on the general population.
A total 5th column piece. Full of many misleading statements. One example should suffice to show that. He says that the Russian counter-sanctions don’t harm agriculture in Europe. Yet we have seen Polish farmers begging to the US to buy their apples. We’ve seen huge French and Spanish farmer protests over the lost sales.And if one wasn’t enough,he says import substitution doesn’t work.And yet the USSR when following that policy became the World’s second largest economy.That was lost with the pro-West policies of the 1990’s.The writer is nothing but another stooge for the West.
“A total 5th column piece”

The point for Sarah was that the elite do not suffer.
Bob, I think the ‘Anonymice’ deserve NOTHING but contempt. It’s bad enough that people use ridiculos nommes de folie, but the ubiquitous ‘Anonymous’ just allows disinformers to hide behind that anonymity.
What Americans of all stripes conveniently try to hide is that so-called Globalism is merely a euphemism for a global American Empire and capitalist system.
America seeks to bring the entire planet under its rule and allow its corporations to exploit workers on every continent and in every country.
That is what trade deals like the TTIP and TPP are really about: American capitalist dominion over the world.
When Americans whine about the offshoring of jobs, what they carefully obscure is how this process enables American captialism to exploit *foreign* workers (particularly in the Developing World) and reap higher profits as a result.
In reality, the “offshoring of jobs”=the offshoring of EXPLOITATION.
But you never hear American (cough) anti-globalists frame the issue in this manner.
That is because they are NOT opposed to globalism (i.e. global American capitalist domination) per se.
Rather their fake “anti-globalism” is merely the self-serving complaint of people who are enraged that they aren’t getting their “fair” share of the economic fruits of Empire.
“America seeks to bring the entire planet under its rule and allow its corporations to exploit workers on every continent and in every country.”
“Americans are rightfully angry. No jobs or stagnant jobs, college debts, high taxes that get higher and higher, crumbling infrasctructure, more tent cities cropping up, inflation does not stop, more homeless, cops trained in Israel in the style of the IDF thugs, Obamacare making deep holes in peoples’ pockets, country getting worse and worse in every department…”
Americans are also the exploitation target.
“Globalism is merely a euphemism for a global American Empire and capitalist system. America seeks to bring the entire planet under its rule and allow its corporations to exploit workers on every continent and in every country. That is what trade deals like the TTIP and TPP are really about: American capitalist dominion over the world.”
I think you’re overlooking the current functional political system in the US. These trade agreements have been negotiated in secret by the Obama administration. US Congress has been denied access to the agreements, and the US public has had no input on their passage; its input has been restricted to post-passage commentary. The US is currently governed by an anti-constitutional dictatorship implemented by executive order by the executive branch of government, bypassing congress and the people, reflecting the intentions and welfare of a global anti-American cabal that controls the Obama administration. We have a fascist government in the US, and these are examples of corporate-government control and control by extra-governmental international organizations such as the UN, Bilderbergers, Trilateral Commission and CFR, rather than examples of the support of Americans for entitled US imperialism. US global imperialism, in addition, is merely a surrogate for Israeli global imperialism, blatantly obvious in US policy in the middle east. US citizens are largely deceived regarding US international policy, since US media is controlled by the same Israeli interests, and US freedom of the press is suppressed to a greater extent than other industrial nations. The US ranks as #41 out of 180 nations surveyed by Reporters Without Borders. Criticism of the Obama administration is punishable by indefinite detention with no legal representation and forfeiture of assets under the NDAA. https://rsf.org/en/ranking Your comment seems to be based on US media disinformation regarding
the sentiment of the US population which incorporates the cognitive dissonance that the US is currently a republic that functions as a representative democracy.
Sending manufacturing jobs to where the labour is cheaper, bringing the cheap products thus produced back and therefore undercutting ‘domestic manufactures, forcing them to close their doors and fire still more employees’ and so on is not tragic, its profit.
The global elite don’t care about countries or the citizens of countries, they just want profit. They eat organic food and drink natural mineral spring water while the citizens eat food and drink water loaded with chemicals, antibiotics and contaminants, so the citizens die earlier. Who cares, profit is made off that food and water loaded with chemicals and antibiotics by the big companies owned by the global elites. So long the citizens live till 40 is ok, by that time they will have raised some new recruits for the labour pool. If the citizens make too much noise the global elite can afford private security to augment the police, judiciary and politicians already in their hands. If things really get too hot for the global elite in one country they can skip to other countries. Not all countries will get that hot at the same time if the global elite manage matters prudently.
In the sci-fi film Elysium the global elite even skip the Earth when the Earth gets too ‘hot’ for them. In the film the rich escape to a luxurious space habitat while leaving the poor on earth to work themselves to death in atrocious conditions to make profit for the rich, much like what happened at the start of the industrial revolution in Britain.
Forgot to mention the genetically modified foodstuffs that the global elite won’t eat while certifying it safe for citizen consumption, more profits for the big companies owned by the global elite. If citizens die early you don’t really need to pay them pensions do you? Also no medical aid needed because if they get sick you can just fire them and hire someone else who is still healthy. If they want a holiday they can have unpaid leave. And it all just means more profit.
The monetary system that feeds the globalist parasites is FUBAR and they are desperate for war and someone to blame.
trilateral commission existed long before Zbigniew Brzezinski
“America does not at the moment have a functioning democracy,”
— former President Jimmy Carter, July 16th, 2013, Atlanta, GA
Hell- iry nor Trump will get my vote.
Though I concede Hell – iry frightens me exceedingly. She is a triple plated violent psychopath. Personally, the woman turns my stomach.
How will Americans react if she wins” ? Trump is disliked by many but Hell – iry is hated with rightetous rage by a great majority Americans. I have never read so much deserved hatred heaped on a presidential candidate. It’s vicious. And yes, she has fully earned it.
Americans are rightfully angry. No jobs or stagnant jobs, college debts, high taxes that get higher and higher, crumbling infrasctructure, more tent cities cropping up, inflation does not stop, more homeless, cops trained in Israel in the style of the IDF thugs, Obamacare making deep holes in peoples’ pockets, country getting worse and worse in every department….
Something has to give. The anger is palpable in the internet forums. America is a pressure cooker.
If Hell- iry ” wins” , I wonder, how the Americans will react?
On another blog or alternative news website there was posted a poll showing 40% of Texans would desire to secede if Killary becomes president. That should make for some interesting times.
Thinking that it was not too long ago when Vermont wanted to secede!!! Vermont!!!
Vermont wanted to secede for completely different reasons, no doubt, than Texas did. This country is not Marxist enough for the likes of the Bernie and Ben and Jerry’s crowd!
“I wonder what 5 eyes has on him to keep repeating lies about Assad and chemical weapons?”
Same stuff they have on Trudeau, or Abbot or whatever temporary CEOs they appoint to run the Anglo-Zionist Empire. Sometimes not much more than vanity and their desire to ‘belong’ to an elite club.
Why does Hillary want to kill herself but get the presidency? Vanity and perhaps immunity from prosecution.
I’ve seen polls that say that one thing that Trump supporters have in common is a complete dis-belief of the media, and in fact the belief that the ‘mainstream media’ is lying to them and manipulating them.
So, for Trump’s base, it appears to be very true that every time the mainstream media attacks and smears Trump that it does indeed strengthen him.
Matt, I rarely see papers these days, but peruse the Murdoch flag-shit here, the ‘Australian’, at the local Library. Every story is bigoted, the hate-mongering and vilification is psychotic, there is no pretense of even-handedness, and a large number of reports I know to be outright lies. All stories concerning China, Russia, Iran, Venezuela etc are negative, often puerilely so. But the precise same biases are seen on the Government ABC, and the multi-cultural SBS.
The particulars of the bias are interesting. Groupthink is total, the presstitutes all expressing the same opinions, often in the same words. At times, say regarding Syria, where the lying and support for the jihadist child crucifiers is absolute and utterly repulsive, various hacks spit out words like ‘Assad’, ‘Syrian regime’, ‘barrel bombs’ etc with a barely repressed hysteria, as if they are acting out in order to impress someone.
I also occasionally visit the Guardian, for tragi-comic relief, and to see how the Zionazis’ drive to destroy Jeremy Corbyn is failing so deliciously. Corbyn is truly loathed by the Zionazis, no doubt because he routed the Blairite ‘Labour Friends of Israel’ and refuses to join in the Oded Yinon Plan ambitions to destroy Syria. Undoubtedly they fear that if their total control of Western politics is undermined anywhere, it may start an avalanche.
All in all it is hard to imagine a more totalitarian indoctrination system. It coheres absolutely with Chomsky and Herman’s ‘Manufacturing Consent’, that outlined the role of the Western ‘Free Press’ as propaganda system for the elite. That was, even twenty-five years ago, the ‘bleeding obvious’, but in the years since the continued oligopolisation of the Western MSM, and the drive of the Zionazi elite to totally control the public discourse, has made the situation almost self-parodic. Meanwhile, those actually interested in what is really happening in the world, have huge resources at their disposal and the MSM is correctly seen as totally unreliable and unprincipled. As evidence of the growing disdain for the MSM propaganda system, can there be a more delectable example than the ‘Guardian’s’ slow death, and its plaintive pleas for readers to subsidise its mendacity, hypocrisy and service to Imperial power, themselves?
Greetings! A lot of Aussies and Kiwis are well informed and not afraid to point out truth. Great comments illustrating the total hypocrisy of Western foreign policy can be read in regional newspapers combined with a strong group of Internet bloggers. ANZACS were always used to do the empires’ dirty work which always involved significant loss of life. Take the suicidal Gallipoli campaign for example, given every little Corporal knows the almost impossibility of taking entrenched positions uphill. 38 000 dead. Ironic that the PM sent the young journalist Murdoch to report on the situation because the Australian government was kept in the dark about the slaughter.
Hillary or Trump …it doesn’t matter. The US power elite run the show from behind the curtains.
Yes, it’s been like that in the Atlanticist West, and the British Empire for several hundred years, the US especially since 1913 (Fed), and the German and Ottoman Empire a few years later (the Russian Empire almost – Russian Revolution/coup d’état)
But not any longer. The mafia of wicked charlatans, monstrous criminals, and pathological liars is finally losing (fast). China, Iran, Putin’s Russia, the internet, and now Trump. they’re finished.
Trump is the American Putin, although – apart from the rigged polls – some are so dumbed-down by the evil system’s ‘education’, and their Idiot-Box, that they can’t even see that Trump (& Putin) is the biggest (and most hated) enemy of the slaver’s mafia (banksters & gangsters) and by far the best chance for Americans since 1913 to get their country back.
“China, Iran, Putin’s Russia, the internet, and now Trump. they’re finished.”
“So, how are the Rich Kids of Tehran getting away with it? Talking to 24-year-old Hamid, who follows the account, he explained that “80 percent of the kids feeding the account are the offsprings of the ruling elite”. RKOT is not simply about a wealthy minority, he said, but is the showcase of a political class’s progeny – exactly the same political class that advocates modest behaviour and self-restraint.”
“The number of dollar billionaires in China is growing despite a 20 percent drop in the domestic stock markets and the economic slowdown, the Hurun Report shows. China now tops the US in the number of billionaires.”
No doubt about it, things are looking up.
Saker. Thanks for the great work you do and the insightful analysis.
There is just one bit of the above I disagree with. “Empire often crumble when their own people become disillusioned and disgusted with massive discrepancy between what the ruling elites say and what they do.”
In my opinion, most Americans are so blinded by the permanent bullshit blizzard (Rhis), that they do not see the discrepancy.
Keep up the good work
That has been the case historically. Oddly, it has been the liberals that were more likely to see the US as a fascist state propped up by incessant propaganda.
But Trump has changed that. He has triggered them to the point they’ve lost all pretext of journalistic integrity. It is plain to see, for all that aren’t willfully delusional, that the media is engaged in major thought control.
A lot of Americans are noticing. Even leftists who don’t like Trump are admitting it. It is becoming the default opinion. Even if Trump loses the election, he may well defeat the empire. Just as small Toto unveiled the Wizard of Oz, so is he pulling the curtain for all to see.
October-November 1917 was a watershed moment in history … October-November 2016 is looking like a replay.
1) The Balfour Declaration
2) The Bolshevik Revolution
3) The fall of the Ottoman Empire … after surviving 400 years of Western Imperialism/Colonialism
4) The “Miracle of the Sun” in Fatima Portugal … today is the 99th anniversary.
The 14th of October New Style is actually the 1st of October Old Style, the Feast of the ‘Protection of the Mother of God’, “one of the most beloved feast days on the Orthodox calendar among the Slavic peoples”. Why? I think I wrote about that things some time ago, but it is worth reminding (I use Wikipedia just for convenience):
“The Russian Primary Chronicle noted that the intercession of the Theotokos was needed for the protection of the people of Constantinople when a large fleet of the pagan Rus, led by Askold and Dir, was threatening Constantinople. The invading fleet was defeated and the event remembered. Strangely, the feast came to be considered a very important feast by the Slavic Orthodox Churches but not by the Greeks (nothing strange, it was a shattering event for the Russians and the beginning of their conversion).
A twelfth-century Russian chronicle describes the establishment of the intercession as a special feast day honoring the event. Within a few centuries, churches began being named in honor of the Protection of the Mother of God.
Among these churches two that are world famous are: in Moscow, the Cathedral of Intercession upon a Moat (Russian: Храм Покрова “на рву,” Cathedral of the Pokrov upon a moat), which is popularly known as the St. Basil’s Cathedral and in Bogolyubovo near Vladimir, the Church of Intercession upon the Nerl River (Russian: Церковь Покрова на Нерли, Tserkov Pokrova na Nerli).”
A word about Bogolyubovo: The Bogolyubovo Icon is a Wonderworking Icon of the Theotokos Agiosoritissa. The icon was painted in the 1157 at the request of Grand Prince Andrew Bogolubsky, in commemoration of an appearance to him by the Mother of God.
One should not forget that the Prince Andrei Bogolubsky is forever linked with the other great wonderworking icon of Russia, the Mother of God of Vladimir.
A propos, Putin once mentioned an icon he has in his aircraft: does anyone know which icon this is?
you are right on the many events during these months in the last century!
It was “also said, to some visionaries (I do not have the link now, but I will provide it) that it was permitted to satan to try the people of God for 1 century from 1917 to 2017, and then God will chain him again”.
Then also there was that story about the Central Bank of Russia being on a 100 year lease to the Rothschild’s. The deal was apparently concluded in 1917, so it expires in 2017 (can’t find the link to it also).
So only next year can Russia own and run its own central bank, and then that will make it only Russia and Iran whose central banks aren’t foreign owned.
Lenin birthed The Ukraine in 1919. I did not know that by then he had already signed away Russia’s financial system as well. But given the years 1917-1990 or so, I think the Bolsheviks were not planning to have a financial system in the first place.
Agreed, but given that the first Bolsheviks were nearly all Jews, it is not impossible that some financial arrangements were concluded …
According to Wikipedia, the “Central Bank of Russia” was founded in 1860. However, it also states that it was founded in 1990 with functions as defined by the Constitution of the Russian Federation written in 1993. In addition, Wikipedia states that during the Soviet period 1930s to 1987 the only bank in the Soviet Union was the State Bank of the USSR (Gosbank) founded in 1921.
These various assertions seem contradictory and make no sense on the face of it that I can see. I do believe that the last sentence is correct, however.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Wikipedia :-)
The current Russian Central bank has nothing to do with one that existed before the revolution of course. The current one was created by the Bretton Woods boys in the 90s, using the same template as they did in all their “colonies” – the bank is said to be “independent” from the government, but of course it is dependent on the world financial elite. This is a huge problem for Russia. The government is very restricted in what it can do. Many in Russia want to see it nationalised – but this would mean direct confrontation with those who can ruin Russia finacially in days if not hours.
I agree. The current Central Bank of Russia is part of the BIS system and serves the interest of the globalist bankers. What I find frustrating is that the financial system of the Soviet Union and the control of monetary policy by the Gosbank was a highly effective system for resisting outside financial manipulation.
In particular, the supply of roubles was tied to the level of economic activity under industrial planning policy. This is similar to ideas of Modern Monetary Theory and the Sovereign Money school who maintain money should be issued by the government (nationalization of the rouble) and not a private bank. Starikov has argued for the nationalization of the rouble here
Unfortunately, there seems to be little interest among the Russian policy makers in such steps at the present time.
This article “says it all.” Allowing for the ‘customized’ promises made to difference audiences, the pseudo-woman, talking to some Brasilian bankers is quoted saying that she “dreams of a hemispheric common market with open trade and open borders.”
Given the European experience, it is possible to infer a future when the United States ceases to exist as a separate, sovereign and independent nation.
The program is already in full swing in Europe, where millions of ‘economic migrants’ help accelerate the plan to create chaos, annihilate nationalities, and kill social services because “we cannot any longer afford it.”
Many readers will know this already, but the plan takes its name from Coudeneuve-Kalergi, founder of the European Union, and is explained in his German book “Practischer Idealismus”, curiously never translated from the German but available on line.
Kalergi envisioned a nations-less Europe and a unique ‘European race’ looking ‘like the Egyptians painted in the Pyramids’, but ruled by a new Jewish aristocracy, genetically improved by intermarrying with the best of ancient European aristocracy.
And to add a note on the influence of Anglo-Zionists power on the election, I came across an article written by Joel Stein, in the Los Angeles Times, where it is written, “As a proud Jew, I want America to know about our accomplishments. Yes we control Hollywood. I don’t care if Americans think that we are running the newsmedia, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government. I just care that we keep running them.”
Nixon was a bit of a masochist for associating himself with the Zionist mass-murderer Kissinger. And, as we know, Nixon taped his conversations, become public a few years back.
There is an interesting dialog between him and Billy Graham, the nation’s best-known Christian Evangelist, about Jewish control of the media.
Graham: “This stranglehold must be broken, or the country is going down the drain.”
Nixon. “You believe that?”
Graham: “Yes, sir”
Nixon: “So do I, though I cannot publicly say it”
We know what happened to him – check who were the original Watergate “investigators,” and how the media ploughed the “fool multitude that choose by show.”
Let’s not forget the Zionists’ hatred of Carter, for having managed to give back the Sinai to Egypt and brought some peace to the Middle East. Hatred that issued in the Central Bank raising interest rates to 25%, which ensured Carter’s demise, the triumph of Reagan and of neo-liberal philosophy. Eventually leading to the public advocacy of miscegenation, homosexuality, pedophilia, interracial and gay sex on television, and, of course, school text-books reflecting the same philosophy.
Some of us may hope otherwise, but they have already secured the victory of a woman “whose sole name blisters my tongue.”
However platonically, we can apply to Trump one of Churchill’s oneliners. “If Hell would declare itself against that woman, I would find something good to say about the devil.”
Those interested to keep in mind why even the devil would be a better option, may refer to the blog, “The Clintons’ War against Women.” http://wp.me/p2e0kb-1Xk
You are over-doing the importance of Israelis. Besides Christ, they are a tribe that has failed to hold onto their little scrag of semi-desert for more than a few generations at a time over the whole course of their 5000 year land claim. And for a very good reason: there is a fundamental flaw in believing that everyone else in the room is an animal. It tends towards a sense of unjustified superiority, and fairly regular trouble. And I write this as as a man able to claim my right of return and who has lived in Jerusalem a while. As a nation they are no real threat to anybody, particularly once the US is spent.
Well said my friend, your clear sight is very valuable these days.
I applaud your courage.
“As a nation they are no real threat to anybody”
I agree with you about Israel on global matters,”once the US is spent”. But I disagree,and feel certain,so would the Palestinians,Lebanese,Syrians,Jordanians,and Egyptians, disagree,that Israel is a threat to no one.
This is aside from the fact that most Israelis are not even Semites and their peoples never lived in Palestine. There were however over a million Palestinians living quite peaceably with the semitic Jews who were there when the British gave this land to the Zionists.I agree with what Ahmadinejad said “What the Germans did to the Jews was an European problem. Why should the Palestinians have to suffer for it?” Zionist Israel is the 2nd most (after the United States) most warmongering and creator of violence in the world.
A search of images for Trump rallies and Clinton rallies shows Trump has the popular support.
A lot of pics of big big crowds turning up for Trump.
Clinton – one big one back in July 2015 but after that, all close ups of Clinton with people behind her. The few pics that actually show the crowd in front of her, shows that not many could be bothered going to hear her speak.
Trump will get the most votes, but one way or another, Clinton will be become president.
Tonight (Oct. 13) Cincinnati, Ohio. Trump filled an arena which holds 18,000 people. Many left standing outside. Just sayin’
Trump will win
I do not share your opinions about the so called americans sheeples “waking up” and revolting against their elites.
Im not an american, not even a westerner (Im actually from Algeria), but from what i say on the outside the american populace are clearly happy with the current situations. Is there massive protests against the slaughter in the middle east ?? is there a massive protest against Wall Streets ?? the answer is clearly No.
Most of the americans know full well that the end of the Americans Empire will also mean the end of the petro $, wich mean no more Road trip with oversized SUV, no more caraibs vacations, no more Las Vegas madness, no more shitty office job being paid 250 000 $/year and wich also mean busting your ass in a factory 10h/day and be paid less then a vietnamese or combodian worker to be competitive. Not something that most of them dream of their future.
Today westerners are just spoiled little brat would rather spill a sea of blood than loosing the privilege of the “printing machine”, and know that they have been beaten at their own game (1839 opium war, colonialism …. ) by the smart and hardworking asians, they cry like little pussies “please bring back our jobs” without knowing that a rotten system will never cure itself from within. its like expecting your diabetes will cure itself while in the same continuing eating McDO and drinking PEPSI.
From what i know, Dr Ron Paul was a much more credible solution, and how the AZ empire media treated him ?? a complete blackout on him, not being featured on every news headline like Trump.
As for the nuclear apocalypse, as much as most of us imagine them crazies (whoever they are in reality) they are NOT mad at all. You cant succed in having the world in your grasp by being a trigger happy cowboy. besides that after enjoying centuries of obscene wealth and power, a life in an underground bunker is not something that will rejoice them.
Totally agree, and very well explained. I tried in another ocassions but in the last thread where this was discussed where so goodd arguments against the two candidatea were said by, I noticed, the very US people I abstained to explain it again., added that I am without computer and must post with a terrible phone not very large and recovering from a terrible pain coming from my neck to my arm because a nerve strangled in my spin.
But, as you say, it is a shame that the people who defend Trump as last resort are trying to convince us thst it’s him of nuclear holocaust, because, as you say, they are willing to make other countries reduuced to ashes, prefereably far from their shores, and all this defenders of the moral ruin Trump represents in every aspect of his life, these are not waiting for anything to change but for to remain the same. These people are not willing to accept what you well describe will imply the falling of their “Empire”, and so, instead of abstaining of vote, they are having great fatigues to support this shame of “Empire” voting for an oligarch whose unique virtues I have read about in the other thread are that “he salutes her most humble emplyees ( only would fault ) and so fo his children”, “that once in one of his cassinos gave a 20$bill to each other of two guys who we do not know how many had lost”, or that ” he wants to win always” . Poor record for a man to be in charge if the major “bully” of the planet and that if that he does like to win always I do not know in what way this is a different attitude from the actual rulers of the US, for whom it is win at any cost, obviousy, any cost of lifes or whole countries except theirs.
So, yes, shame on you who find this crap electable, and I am only waiting for what you will say when all continue thr same, that it will. You might have support another decent candidates, as more reasonable and honest people have told here, for what I am aware Jill Stein, Ron Paul and perhaps some others, but you chose the oligarch, because, in the end, you desire to legitimate your crap of civilizational model based on lies, thiefand destruction at huge scale.
But, be sure, you will not prevail, because, in other parts of the globe, there are people, many, who have had enough of you.
I never thought that such a well informed and intelligent analyst like the Saker could fall to this “Trump the savior” mascarade.
Do the trump “supporters” really think that the “rulers” of this world (whoever they are in reality) will let the crown jewel of their Empire (the US of A) escape their filthy satanist clutches so easely ?? how amateurish they can be if they are outsmarten by a narcissic clown with barely the tenth of the fortune of one of their lackeys (bill gates) and who’s finance chairman is an ancient of goldman sachs and soros fund management??
They killed the last true US president in front of his own citizens and created the idiotic “magic bullet” theory so that everyone knew that not even the US president is beyond their reach. Do they seriously think that a narcissic “fils a papa” who like to brag on how he has gold plated seat belt on his personal plane and cant even open his mouth 05 min without embarassing himself is a problem to deal with it ???
I generally agree with your analysis Mr Saker but i think that on this matter you are clearly blinded by excessive hope :-(
I don’t read it as excessive hope. I read it as “Over here in the Empire Homeland anything but Hillary has a small chance of giving a little more time for forces far better than the Donald, elsewhere in the world, to mobilize.”
“Saviour?” Who said that?
It’s a small piece of what has to be done, stopping Hitlery. Is it sufficient? Absolutely not! But nevertheless,it is a very small part of the totality that is necessary IMHO.
Sometimes you have to work the margins for incremental improvements, even if those margins are extremely marginal, and the battle would just begin all over again with a Trump inauguration, if one were to occur. No rest for the wicked nor the good.
>>”I don’t read it as excessive hope. I read it as “Over here in the Empire Homeland anything but Hillary has a small chance of giving a little more time for forces far better than the Donald, elsewhere in the world, to mobilize.””
My freind as i said in my precedent comment “a rotten system will never cure itself from within. its like expecting your diabetes will cure itself while in the same continuing eating McDO and drinking PEPSI.”
unless you are planning of torching the capitol and all the traitor inside it, you are pissing against the wind. Bil, Hillary, Donald, Barack, François …. etc who care what name they have as long as they are obedient to the “elites”. They KILLED a US president in front of his own citizens, they blew up three towers in 9/11. Do you think that if “the clown” wasn’t completely under control he would be alive right now opening his clueless mouth ??
Cheering for a savior while staying confortably in our lounges will NOT lead us anywhere i’m afraid.
Nobody wants to sit in a bunker forever.
What the Empire cant do to Russians and Arabs – anymore – they will do to their own people.
Sir, I regret to inform you that the vast majority of my fellow countrymen have absolutely no idea what the petrodollar is, and are therefore ignorant of the financial consequences of its demise.
Of course our ruling elites are fully aware of that backbone of their financial wealth, but, as wikileaks confirmed, they prefer to keep the plebes uninformed and compliant. Said one such elite operative:
“And as I’ve mentioned, we’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry. The unawareness remains strong but compliance is obviously fading rapidly. This problem demands some serious, serious thinking – and not just poll driven, demographically-inspired messaging.”
They have generally succeeded in the production of unaware citizens.
“Most of the americans know full well that the end of the Americans Empire will also mean the end of the petro $, wich mean no more Road trip with oversized SUV, no more caraibs vacations, no more Las Vegas madness, no more shitty office job being paid 250 000 $/year and wich also mean busting your ass in a factory 10h/day and be paid less then a vietnamese or combodian worker to be competitive. Not something that most of them dream of their future.
Today westerners are just spoiled little brat would rather spill a sea of blood than loosing the privilege of the “printing machine”, and know that they have been beaten at their own game (1839 opium war, colonialism …. ) by the smart and hardworking asians, they cry like little pussies “please bring back our jobs” without knowing that a rotten system will never cure itself from within. its like expecting your diabetes will cure itself while in the same continuing eating McDO and drinking PEPSI.”
You’re right. Most people–mainstream or “alternative”–would rather not acknowledge it but …
The American people know damn well their entire way of life and standard of living are based upon exploiting and looting the world.
This system of looting is executed through America’s (Petro) Dollar Dictatorship in particular and through the Washington Consensus (aka, Free Market Fundamentalism) in general.
America, Host or Parasite? – Michael Hudson
Super Imperialism: The Economic Strategy of American Empire http://michael-hudson.com/books/super-imperialism-the-economic-strategy-of-american-empire/
Hell, even Vladimir Putin–whom people here claim to support–has acknowledged this Politically Incorrect truth:
The United States is a parasite on the global economy.
Putin says U.S. is “parasite” on global economy
What motivates Amuricans is the fear that they will *lose* this ability to parasite off the world–and hence lose their precious American Way of Life itself.
Sorry, no matter who wins the election, I’m convinced that US presidents have only a very small rudder to be stirring a very, very big ship. Meaning, no matter how much the president may engage the rudder, the ship will be moving in one direction only: forward. Forward as it has been for two+ centuries, quite independent from any president’s attempt to influence direction. The deep state runs this country (and has been running it from almost the beginning) and is in charge of where this ship is going.
As much as I like, have read, have followed the work of Peter Dale Scott. I think it is an error to fall into the misconception that the deep state is a robust monolith (I do not mean to say that Scott considers it so either, only that the term tends to leads one in that direction) Rather one should think of it as the resultant of a myriad of weak and opposing vectors, slouching toward Gemorrah. The image of the Dragon inspires fear and dread, but the dragon is also pathetic.
no one seems to think about the agenda of the globalists NWO types, who,
according to the conspiracy theorists, cannot have a strong militarized independent
nation able to resist that agenda.
therefore the destiny of the USA is that its power to be broken, hence the decline is
programmed into the agenda.
so conspiracy theries aside, the power brokers, deep state are ”internationalists”,
have properties all over the place but some seem to favour patagonia.
The Jewish/Zionist total control of the Western world was accomplished some 500 years ago.
Having secured their position as number one money-printers centuries before the invention of Christ, allowed the parasites to buy-out any opposition as easily back then as now. How awfully, depressingly boring!
Just think: What fun is it to play ‘Monopoly’ with your ‘buddies’ if you are sitting next to the Monopoly-money-printer? And what are the odds that any of opponents – and be they word champions or geniuses – will ever win?
Having no serious challenges, no competition, no adversaries, the Jews/Zionists started to play cat and mouse with entities they were inventing out of thin air – just for fun.
Jesuitism, Freemasonism, Capitalism, Socialism, Naziism, Existentialism, Communism, Neo-Liberalism, UFOism, Cold-Warism, Hippieism, Terrorism, Globalism, Feminism, Jihadism, Genderism, post-Humanism – to no avail.
The excitement these artificial mind-constructs brought about were always short-lived, superficial and rather stale. Try playing chess with yourself!
No wonder has everything deteriorated to the global freak-show we are witnessing in this day and age, the Trump-Hillary mud wrestling battle just being a particular sordid example of today’s state of affairs.
Some fresh air is needed. Real human heart & soul power. Now!
Really, this morning, in the local radio, they were commenting prwciselly thst, to how low level the debates of this presidential campaign have reached to arrive coming from the two candidates. I think that US ( I am going to try to avoid calling them Americans because thery do not represent America as a whole, although they always believed it and try to mantain the other American nations again under their shoes, but as that this no more wash, going to be accustomed.
Because, since you are in whole fool display, with your army and secret services going around there as the despicable thugs and mercenaries they are, and there is no person to whom talk in a civilized and diplomatic way, for you not to loose your so ashamely earned priviledged style of life, finally yes, the Russians are coming, but not to invade you nor for even attack you, but, at least to try to stop you going totally mad. And for the souch in this blog is critizised all what was done by the former leaders of the USSR and you try to sell us the idea of that they worked for the West, it happens that now Russia, in ftont of a similar situation of being corraled and surrounded for a coalition of powers willing to bring them again to its knees, they finally are planning to come back to stablish Russian military bases around the world in the same countries of influence of the USSR,
And, finally, the diplomatic way is out too, and even that gentleman Mr. Lavrov is and so is Mr. Churkin have started to call a spade a spade, which is, as every adult knows, the unique language a malcriado child understands:
Try to translate the above article in Spanish with a translator because has no waste, it includes Mr. Lavrov’s statements in “plain English” so as “pardners” understand.
Here is the requested translation (edited from Google translation)
For once diplomatic language becomes intelligible. And it does so long as it ceases to be diplomatic. Who has done this has been the Russian Foreign Affairs Minister Sergey Lavrov. Always deliberate, always cautious, formally soft but hard at bottom, Lavrov has shown that he is fed up with the US and its vassals. Not him, but all of Russia.
Lavrov has said message in a thousand ways and has sweetened it in a hundred different ways, but has decided that enough is enough and that the world has to know what is happening. And what is happening is that “the US is starting to become aware of the gradual, yet inevitable end of its omnipotence” (sic) and that explains not only their animosity toward Russia, but his erratic behavior.
This recognition of the progressive loss of influence concerns not only the US, but their Western vassals. Lavrov again; “This process is still very painful for Western countries because, for centuries, they were those who controlled the world” (sic). And he continues: “it has been so since the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries; they established rules and regulations and everyone listened. Even in 1992 [already defunct USSR] they thought they had Russia in their pocket. Until a couple of years ago we were told that Russia must know their place, said pejoratively, we were merely a regional power. Now they even accuse us of interfering in the US presidential race. ”
It was in a television interview last day 7, at rush hour. Lavrov said much more (it is a pity that it is only in Russian transcription because it is very juicy) both with reference to the new role of Russia in geopolitics and to the Syrian issue. Here it was also devastating to assert that “just as the Ronald Reagan’s adminsitración created Al-Qaeda and George Bush’s the [so-called] Islamic State, I would not want the Obama administration pass into history as one who has encouraged, strengthened and ensured the success of a new terrorist organization like al-Nusra Front (now renamed Front for the Conquest of the Levant, the Al-Qaeda branch in Syria) “(sic). It is not an ordinary citizen who makes these claims, it is the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia.
Since we are in Syria two points: I suppose you know that on Friday the Security Council of the UN voted on two resolutions on the same subject, the Syrian. The first, sponsored by France and Spain, calling for an end to attacks on Aleppo to flights of aircraft and the end of everything. Russia vetoed and China abstained (take note because, as I told you, China is clearly working to strengthen its ties with France and Germany and is already clearly wooing the replacements for the current leaders, Hollande and Merkel) . The second, sponsored by Russia with the backing of China, argued that if we want to comply with the previously approved resolutions, one had to continue fighting “all groups, entities or individuals associated or linked with Al-Qaeda”, in addition to supporting the plan UN envoy to Syria regarding withdrawal of members of the “opposition” in Aleppo. It was vetoed by the US, France and Britain. It is the first time in UN history that a double veto occurred on the same day and on the same subject.
Here the Russian representative did the same thing as its minister, he spoke clearly and without diplomatic subterfuge. His name is Vitaly Churkin and he replied to Britain. “The permanent representative of the United Kingdom has just exclaimed pathetically Stop this now! “. He’s right, you should immediately stop supporting every kind of scum in the world, whether extremists, terrorists and all those who dedicate themselves to destabilize the situation in this or that country. Generally speaking, you meddle in the affairs of other sovereign states. Give up this colonialist habit. Let the world be in peace.This will stabilize the situation in various regions of the world. ”
Increasingly, positions become clearer, the speech too. As if that were not enough, the Chinese representative Liu Jieyi, explained his position as follows: “the French project does not reflect full respect for the sovereignty, independence, unification and territorial integrity of Syria, while the content of the draft Russian proposal did, and we regret that the Russian proposal was not adopted”.
And a fact to consider: Egypt, the only Arab nation on the Security Council, voted in favor of the Russian resolution. This may have several explanations (one, for example, discomfort with Saudi Arabia because the billions of dollars pledged after crushing the Muslim Brotherhood have not arrived) which I will not go into now.
All of this occurs the same week that the confrontation between the US and Russia has taken a spectacular leap, but must be interpreted as acts of desperation by the US, which feels like Mexicans say, “I ninguneado” every time more and more people. A former Indian diplomat (India) just said very graphically after commenting on the interview with Lavrov: “compared to him, his US colleagues don’t come up to his waist; if you compare Lavrov’s comments with those of Kerry [secretary of State], the latter’s sound like those of a frustrated man, who has lost his composure”(sic). He continued: “The US does not realize that the earth has begun to sink beneath its feet in the Middle East, its former allies Turkey and Saudi Arabia are already playing on their own because the orchestra no longer has a conductor.” And ends: “the vision of an empire that is sinking is not rewarding [for that empire]; such was the case with Rome, Byzantium, Spain, Portugal, France, Great Britain …”. ES M.K Bhadrakumar, a former diplomat for 29 years who knows what he’s talking about.
Hence the US bluster about attacks on Syria, and its bluster about nuclear war; and hence not as much bluster since yesterday since not long ago it dropped to made two mock bomings with atomic bombs in one of its military bases in Nevada. What is most amazing is the justification; “to obtain data on the reliability, accuracy and performance data” of the bombs. That says it all.
The situation is reaching an unprecedented level, so the fact that some diplomats have used an intelligible language has much greater merit everyone understands and can understand where the world is decanted and who their executioners.
Thanks a lot, dear comrade, for doing and posting the translation. I yesterday just alrwady made and excess posting several posts in the situation in what I find myself with an strangled nerve at the level of cervical spin. Moreover I must manage with a not so large smartphone with which takes three times the time required with a computer, mine unabled since 15 days ago, and makes many errors or the post goes through unfinished.
So, very kind of you, God bless if you are a believer and, in if not the case, health and strenght in the fight which promise very hard.
All the best.
Thank-you so very much for this translation!
Vitaly Churkin, Lavrov, and Pres. Putin are truly remarkable human beings.
Restores one’s faith in an intelligent humanity.
The Deep State will simply not allow Hitlery to lose the election, whether she receives the most votes or not. If she doesn’t, you will never know of it. Trump is being thoroughly demonized (just like Putin) because, otherwise, Hitlery is so reviled she would never be accepted as the POTUS. In fact, the primaries were clearly manipulated by the media and party insiders to ensure that the only candidate with higher negatives than Hitlery would be her opponent in the general election.
If you’ve always suspected that American elections were an orchestrated sham, you were right, but the evidence was never quite so obvious. Now TPTB seem not to care that they are as transparent as borosilicate glass. If Trump had all of these glaring defects, if he was not merely a “racist” and a misogynist but also a sex-crazed pervert who frequently assaulted women on the level of a Bill Cosby, why didn’t we hear beans about them during the primaries? Jeb Bush would have loved to direct some return fire at Donald’s pot shots. But suddenly, previously unknown tapes and a bevy of supposedly assaulted women crawl out of the woodwork, far too late to allow a more competitive opponent against Hillary.
All this sounds too good to be true for the Democrats. Of course, so was the decision by the media that the cheating in the DNC on behalf of Hillary was of no consequence because that evidence was divulged to the world by those evil Russians who have been hacking everyone in America with an eye towards disrupting our electoral process (though there is absolutely no evidence presented for such). Billionaire American oligarchs try to buy the election, with only mixed success, yet the Russkies are somehow going to finesse their way to a desired outcome using some hackers at Fancy Bear to manipulate voting rosters in Illinois and Arizona. I guarantee you that the DNC has no clue where I, as a registered Democrat, stand on the candidates. And the Kremlin is gonna what? Make sure I get some walking around money in return for voting “Trump” on November 8th?
You can’t make this stuff up, yet most of the sleep-walking American public is perfectly fine checking off on it if their media says it’s so. NY Times says Russia’s in Syria for the thrill of genocide? Then that must be true. Everyone knows that the Russians are bad, Mkay? They’ve always been bad. The only reason they could possibly want to increase trade with Europe and the world in general, retain the good relations of two millennia with their Near Abroad, and stamp out Islamic terrorism in their neighborhood is to thwart America in some nefarious way. If you’re looking to identify this “Russian aggression” that Obama constantly carps about, those things are it.
We really don’t need Hillary Clinton to deliver the nuclear war with Russia that Obama (or his rogue government that may actually have functionally overthrown him in a silent coup led by the Pentagon) has been slowly but surely leading to. Like John the Baptist, Ash Carter has been preaching a new day once the female messiah, the new Queen of Chaos, arrives. Whether she’s tanned, rested and ready, or medicated, sedated and agitated, she is there in the wings, waiting to mete out justice against the “war criminals” in the Kremlin. But even if she drops dead the day after the election, her clone named Kaine will step in and carry out the same ill-advised policies sure to lead to a world war. Our long term survival will require the substantial task of getting past these next four years in the face of ever-increasing belligerence and irrationality on the part of the U.S. government.
It is a worrying trend.
But what do we expect when the Tone at the Top is such a criminal cesspool of mendacity projected (and rewarded) as the new ‘normal’? One big Enron, writ large.
See UK statistics by PWC between 2014 and 2016 on the fraud risk triangle.
Note the “capacity to rationalise” going from 7% to 21%. (i.e., rationalisation of the perpetrator to justify the crime).
[See the fraud triangle diagram: “The well-established ‘fraud triangle’ captures the three key motivations that lead staff to commit fraud against their employers. While two-thirds of our survey respondents still felt that opportunity was the biggest factor driving staff fraud, the ability of perpetrators to rationalise their fraudulent act has tripled in importance since 2014.”]
Actually it is good for Trump to be on the receiving end of all the hatred _before_ his presidency.
He gets to know his enemies … for later removal.
If he is able to win now — he will be able to unite all the warring agencies.
If not — then let Hillary be the president under her watch the fall of the empire finally will happen.
>As for journalists, they are about as respected as lawyers and medical doctors (amazing how these two noble professions got completely discredited by their practitioners in just a few decades!).
Amazing? No. Actually, it’s quite predictable
The bourgeoisie has stripped of its halo every occupation hitherto honoured and looked up to with reverent awe. It has converted the physician, the lawyer, the priest, the poet, the man of science, into its paid wage labourers. — Marx, Manifesto of the Communist Party, Chapter I
Interesting comment. Americans at large have the same faith in their ‘democracy’, as they have in the medical system. Those interested may read the recent blog, “War on Health”, http://wp.me/p2e0kb-1Zw
Which, as an afterthought, reminds me of a sentence by Chekov, “Doctors are just the same as lawyers; the only difference is that lawyers merely rob you, whereas doctors rob and kill you too.” Accurate and appropriate, I think, considering that the overwhelming majority of congressmen, senators and associated parasites were trained in or come from the legal profession.
Look its a numbers game, nothing changes until women start becoming more interested in these kind of topics.
Women make up 50% of the population even if half of men know whats going on it only makes up 25% of the population. The elites can deal with 25%!!
Ive yet to meet a woman interested in these geo political discussions. Then theres gays, without sounding homophobic most gays ive ever met have apolitical personalities like women unless its gay rights. Is it any wonder why the elites love gay rights so much.
Go on saker put a visible male / femail box on comments and ill rest my case.
I’m a female; awake, alert and sickened beyond belief…
Anonymous on October 13, 2016 • at 7:26 pm UTC,
“sickened beyond belief…”, I could not have said it better Sister. I found Carlos’ post a little sexist, but I also applaud his strength in breaking through the PC barrier. I have always found many females in the Left-wing groups I have moved through; typically very fierce, educated and principled people. In Left groups women make up typically about 50% of the membership, and because of our principles find it easy to move into leadership roles if they wish. Many women I have personed the barricades with though don’t like the macho factional politics that tend to take place inside political groups; and I don’t blame them, I am no longer active mainly because of this.
But more directly to Carlos’ point, part of this phenomenon could be the old gender division of labour still residual in our culture; where women are responsible for the inner world, and men for the outer. It could also be typically women still run the day-to-day family budget, and are less inclined to deal with ethereal, unrelated external issues. Believe me, when this fake economy collapses, everyone will be in the streets. Up until recently, following geopolitics has been a hobby for most of us here. Sometime over the last two years WW III broke out, and our little hobby has now become a vital task.
We can’t expect disengaged amateurs to see what we see, when we have spent our lives studying and following this discipline. The Oligarchy has also expended every effort to ensure that people don’t realise what is happening; this has been possible in the West as we had the money to buy everyone off with a middle-class lifestyle. This money ran out in the 70’s, and we have been in hock ever since. This music is about to stop, and there are nowhere near enough chairs for everyone. I think Carlos made a valid point, but it is a reality we will not be in for very much longer.
Very well said, comrade, and support all your points in what is related to leftist woman really wanting to chnge the state of affairs, and some men also, but most men and a bunch of women to they are there too only to scalate possitions, I mean, these are those whose fathers were part of one of the stablishment bipartisan system who, seeing that this system does not resist more because people’s increasingly awareness and exhaustion, as intelligent people and well educated they are, are trying to reach to the top to the new left formations.Then there are the “transfugas”, those coming from the right, those who do not see never anywhrere but at the top, and then young apolitic people, who never were interested in the problems of their comrades until they found that after finishing study the fanthastic job under payement of several thousands of euros was not waiting for them to be part of the pribiledged of the world. These three types of people are those who are causing disunion and trouble in the new left in Spain and which is what is leaving the people who supported them in mass in the European elections to starting getting disilussionated. Added to that, the real opposition of a not despicable part of the traditional left in front of this spectacle. Obviously, as I had the opportunity to test when I participated on the birth of Podemos, the Sorosian or if any other origing 5th column is present, of course, then they are the arribists who do not add nothing to a work that is to be done as a whole with the strenght of union where anyone adding what it could best, and then those who are searching a mske if living of these, because thesr will be those who will betray us at the slightest opporunity of obtainig a better economic reward. These are all elements to purge to earn the trust of the grest masses.
So, the panorame is not to shot fireworks but who said that it was going to be easy?
This is a revolution in the way, some just behind the “top of the hill” will try to convince us that they are with us in this, say aristhocrats, middle and little bankers and entrepeneurs, will try to achieve that it works for them to scalate one step to the top, ans so, I do not see anything wrong in thieving them ( since they have passed thieving and exploiting us since the beggining of the times and “thieving a thief, thousands years of pardon”) a bunch of millions for
the cause, since we have not them and
money is needed. But we need a hard core of incorruptible and inaccessible to depondence people taking care all the time that the train of the revolution of the peoples do not derail to reach our goal, a more equal and free world where the majority could live with dignity, in peace and progressing always in the direction of the common good.
A society inclusive for all people of all origins and creeds who were able to work in this direction, without trying to imposse their views to the others and leaving their religious practices to the intimity of their homes, where they pertain. And, obviously, everybody will have to work, there will be no place for idle people.
Encouraging to hear that we have femail readers here. No offence was intended, like I said its a numbers % game.
Many nations particularly in Africa / asia just write off a % of their population, the US and Europe is heading in this direction.
Well-said – but there’s an additional force beyond fear of Trump – the fear of economic collapse hitting too soon. And as the author says, the elites are better informed than we. I’d add that the elites are focused on money and power, they study these things and their lives revolve ’round them. Not only do they have better information than we, but they have a personal stake in the way things go and the power to affect events…
An economic disaster, the disaster the economics boffins say is inevitable and proximate, might well put Trump in the job…
The US is actually a colony of a Global Zionist Empire (sometimes aka “The Khazarian Mafia”). MSM generally treats Western nations as autonomous, independent, or as obedient to “Washington” but that is hiding source. The US was hijacked some time ago. Putin has taken a stand for Russia’s sovereignty — that is unacceptable to the world’s “deep state”. It has its own NWO plan for it.
There are books by courageous writers on the subject, such as ‘The Host and The Parasite: How Israel’s Fifth Column Consumed America’ by Greg Felton, and a search online will turn up more sources.
I don’t think there is a schism inside the US deep state. I doubt any elements of the ruling elite want Trump as President. The New-World-Order neocon aristocracy have one goal: to reduce the entire world to chaos in order to create a power vacuum, thus enabling the establishment of their One World Government. They are systematically eliminating, via “regime change”, all power centers that stand as obsctacles to this goal, in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and the Russian sphere. Thus went Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein, and Viktor Yanukovich. Next planned is Assad. They now talk openly of regime change in Russia. Integral to the elitist plan is to leave chaos in their wake, in the form of destroyed infrastructure, terrorism, and mass civilian casualties, thereby demolishing all political and cultural institutions that do not fit the One World Government paradigm.
Trump is against “regime change”, and especially opposes confrontation with Russia. As Alexander Dugin warns, the ruling elite could start World War III just to stop Trump. Now I am seeing rumors that Putin has called Russian citizens abroad to return to Russia in case of impending world war. I’ve tried to confirm this. But oddly, I couldn’t find the official Russian government website on Bing or Google. What i find looks like a mock website: it does not have Putin speeches or statements like the official Russian website I remember. What gives?
Meanwhile, the media lies and vilification of both Putin and Trump have escalated sharply in the last week. How close are we?
President of Russia website here
I don’t understand why Putin doesn’t openly threatens the people who are pushing for war with Rússia. The Kagans, the Kriystols, the Clintons, the obamas the the Boris Johnsons of this world. Why Putin doesn’t say if a war is to happen, those people in the decision making process will be the first and PRIORITY targets. With todays technology, that’s perfectly possible. If this warmongers knew that they, themselves, would be the first targets in a war with Rússia, I think that they would back off.
The Russians never threathen anybody and they always talk to their adversaries even during a cold or hot war.
They always act by surprise.
The actual puppet masters of the world, of which the evil Soros could perhaps be considered as the visible tip of the iceberg, are no doubt looking at the current world situation with satisfaction. The bickering between Right and Left in Europe, Republican and Democrat in the USA, is distracting the populaces from their long term goal – one world government.
A very astute American commentator by the name of Brandon Smith, has predicted that Trump will be “allowed” to win the election. This will be a trigger for a financial crisis that they will initiate and blame on “conservative populists”, epitomized by Trump and Brexit supporters. To bring order to the economic chaos that they created, they will call for more centralization of the world’s monetary systems. Think of the world’s population as the fable about the frog in the pot, being slowly boiled alive.
I feel like Trump & Hillary are two divorced parents fighting over custody of us but we kinda just wanna go live with grandma.
This charade has nothing to do with Trump or Clinton. They are only little break clowns.
Mossad’s motto anyone?
“By Way Of Deception, Thou Shalt Do War.”
Who does Mossad represent? Follow the money.
If a person loves Russia, how can they hate Trump?
Yes, Alexander Dugin, probably the best Russian analyst, nails it. (the US, Hitlery stands for, is hated for the same reason Nazi Germany was hated)
Joaquin Flores rises to the occasion and writes a fantastic piece on Trump vs. Hillary. Must read.
The neocons only serve one master and that is Israel, they are traitors to the American people and should be tried as such. If Russia wants to neutralise these delusional sociopathic zio-nutjobs then Israel must be made to understand that in the event of a retaliatory nuclear strike against the USA, Israel too will be targeted for complete and utter elimination. Perhaps that might motivate Bibi Netanyahu to have a discrete word with his ‘Israel-First’ agents within the American Establishment, starting with HRC, to change the current belligerent discourse.
This is so wrong. Deception is what keeps empires going. You keep engaging in wishful thinking.
Let’s stop kidding ourselves.
What is happening in the western world is a movement that cannot be shaped, contoured, governed, depicted or even rationally explained. It is spreading like a wildfire in the 35 to 60 age group. Call it “Basta!”, “Khalas!”, “Assez!”, “довольно!”, “Enough!”.
We the sheeple are now stubborn donkeys. We just can’t take it anymore.
Most of us received enough education, including History, Geography and Science and we can recognize batshit crazy situations when we see one. Previously, we never really cared as we were quite busy building our lives, our kids lives and the countries we live in. We never wanted to be Lions as we did not need to wage wars against psychopaths to enjoy our lives. We thought we had them caged and restrained by constitution, bill of rights, universal laws: Politics was their arena, we had our Pleasure Domes.
We took corruption as a necessary evil, a kind of social security for dysfunctional societies and rogue places on our planet. But we thought we had it under some kind of control. We were so wrong…
We had our share of cronies and brat children and parasites but while they were gaming the system we were still the driving force behind the system. And then, it happened. Suddenly we found ourselves in a world where the tiny minority that can act with total impunity, tramp any law has decided that we are an obstacle to their enjoyment in life. So they are waging war on us.
We have to acknowledge it, stop living in a fantasy world, accept the battle and win.
Fools think (and say) that Clinton and Trump are Deep State options, and thus your ‘choice’ between the two is one and the same. We have always called these fools ‘useful idiots’.
The truth is very different. Recall that Clinton was supposed to be the candidate and *winner* of the election that first brought Obama to power. However, so despised is Clinton, even by members of her own party, she lost the Democratic primaries to Obama- and this came as a *massive* shock to the Deep State controllers of the Democrat party at the time. Even the Demons are vulnerable to the ‘wild card’ factor.
So the second time around- with Clinton even more unpopular with the average American- the Deep State took no risks. Total chumps were picked as her rivals in both the Republican and Democrat party. Clinton wouldn’t ‘win’ as much as everyone else would ‘lose’. But then, pretty much by ‘accident’, Trump threw his hat in the ring.
At no time (at the beginning) did Trump intend a serious stab at becoming President. But the Deep State handled him wrongly at every junction, and Donald’s personality propelled him forward despite his initial intentions. In the UK, it is common for students to elect animals or even inanimate objects as ‘president’ of their university. It is a common form of group protest/joke by the sheeple. The intial people power that Trump got was of the same predictable form- except the Deep State missed this, so convinced are they of their own ‘Demonic’ infallibility.
When High Demon Tony Blair first became Prime Minister of the UK, this only happened because the Deep State arranged the same apparent collapse of the ‘opposition’ (Conservative) party. And in the UK, it is *impossible* for a Trump figure to rise to rapid power in an established political party. The USA is different in many major ways (near absolute right of ‘free speech’ is another- Blair exterminated all free speech in the UK).
Trump is not, never was, and never could be part of the Deep State plan- anyone who tells you otherwise is a liar or a fool (and by the way regular, apparently ‘good guy’ posters in your favourite forums who claim this have revealed themselves to be Deep State agents- note their handles and never trust a word they say ever again).
Of course if Trump wins, he will be co-opted to a large extent – but even so he will act as a *brake* on the worst evil plans of the Deep State. Why do you think the entire zionist controlled mainstream media of the West is in lock step in their endless anti-Trump propaganda? President Trump delaying their evil intentions gives others (like Russia) the chance to step up. If Putin, for instance, stood up to the wahhabi monsters of the House of Saud, ended their rule, and brought freedom to the people of Saudi Arabia, the entire sheeple population of Planet Earth would stand up and scream their approval. The Demons that control the Deep State would be finished for many many decades to come.
Even President Trump himself might look closely at the insanely evil wahhabi cult, vomit, and ask why the USA needs to continue to support such monsters when the sheeple don’t even know of the connection between Israel and Saudi Arabia, and would continue to support Israel even if Trump initiated the downfall of the House of Saud himself. What could the Deep State demons do to hold him back in this case (yeah, the JFK option I suppose).
Again, make a note of ‘supposed’ awake people who tell you Trump is just like Clinton, and serves the same people in the same way. This election campaign has exposed many hidden assets of the Deep State online. Those that tell you Trump is the *only* non-Demonic choice in this election may be trustworthy. Those that tell you Trump is as bad an option as Clinton are a 100% untrustworthy now and in the future.
Should Clinton win, we most certainly would have a continuance resembling the continuance that occurred when Obama took over from Bush.
Should Trump win, the future is unknowable, and that is equally scary. But it might be the organic necessity for this country now to undergo what Russia underwent during the Yeltsin years (which have seemed chaotic and embarrassing from the outside, but perhaps in the end survivable.)
There is an alternative the mainstream would like everyone to forget – I think of Jill Stein as perhaps the Jimmy Carter of this era, insofar as she would have a tough road ahead of her with most of Washington not in her corner. She has a great platform, though, and sounds the most like Putin of any of the candidates. A pity no one is talking about her. She is more for the people of the United States than either of the other two. She’s just not about big money, so the press ignores her.
It should be said that only a very small percentage of the Outlaw US Empire’s citizenry knows what’s happening, about 2-3% of 320 million–just under 10 million people. Far more understand the issues of Climate Change and Health Care, but when it comes to being able to state the Outlaw US Empire’s stated and published #1 foreign and domestic policy goal–Full Spectrum Dominance–the number falls to just a few tens of thousands–well below .005%–and that might be too optimistic. But a very large number are aware of the Propaganda System’s distortions, with Democrats being the least aware cohort according to Gallup. Truth Tellers like myself find ourselves blacklisted and censored at supposedly liberal/progressive “news” sites when we hammer away at the System’s lies and out their “journalists” for their distortions and false framing. Currently, the Black Lives Matter movement and that of the Natives trying to block the Dakota Access Pipeline are more visible than Sanders’s vaunted Political Revolution. And another non-topic is how Stein’s polling despite the millions that will be voting for her.
I do agree that November 8 will prove to be important; just 25 days to go.
Mar 3:(27) No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil
his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then
he will spoil his house.
though this verse speaks in a spiritual context the principle applies elsewhere.
the enemy only understands force and that is what it will come to.
I think president Putin knows that a major fight is inevitable and wisely uses diplomatic restraint to allow the enemy to weaken its self before he delivers the fatal blow.
people accuse him (and russia) of being naïve in his dealings with the west – this is a foolish notion.
Westerners mistake grace as a weakness – grace is given only from a position of strength.
the Russians know exactly what they are dealing with (raw sewage), but they walk the high ground going out of their way to make concessions and and extend the bridge of cooperation
(more than once in syria).
this is to buy time but also to keep a clear conscience when they finally execute
judgement (many chances for the enemy to choose the right path but they choose death)
I think I have to agree with Rostislav Ishchenko’s assessment that Hillary is actually better than trump from Russia’s point of view
and another one
so what is trump? – some have called him a prosecutor to reveal the sins of the government (and the tax payers supporting them) and I agree, he has done that very well, if he stepped down now he could walk away with his head held high.
at the end of the day will the people face up to their own history and make amends (or at least admit to it)?
Seems to be that the anglosaxon empire doesn’t want repentance but a return to the status quo of pre-eminence (I see this theme everywhere )
on another note
I have to wonder if the fly landing on Hillarys face an endorsement from obama (lord of the flies)
Will the embarrassing nonsense never freaking end?!
Will we all seriously have to listen to freaking deluded morons – fill in your own epithet – tell us that anything about this election is real/matters other than that all of the brainwashed peons – but especially the “savvy” “clever” peons – are talking not about the misery of their lives and the lives of those affect by the criminal US but about Hillary and Trump?
Bravo, suckers, you’ve taken the bait once a-freakin-gain! Truly amazing.
Shall we go down the list of idiocy in this thread alone so that Saker can maybe begin to salvage what is turning out to be an embarrassment much like all of the other geopolitical sites whose commentators lack the awareness re: the propaganda that is bombarding their minds and turning them into raving imbeciles?
OK, with my comments:
“The panic is palpable.” Um, no.
“Trump is the American Putin” Um, no.
“Trump will get the most votes” Not that it matters but Um, no.
“Of course if Trump wins, he will be co-opted to a large extent – but even so he will act as a *brake* on the worst evil plans of the Deep State.” Um, no.
I mean, where is the level of sophisticated analysis that this site and others used to display when discussing the Deep State and political machinations by intelligence agencies?
Nowhere to be found, that’s where!
Instead, every single geopolitical site of note takes the same kindergarten analytical level of comparing these two candidates – try to hold your laughter – by what they actually say!!!
Oh, so Trump said he like Russia, huh?
Well, a sane/astute person might think “Hmm, an Establishment billionaire who has never shied away from militarism/jingoism and who has been friends w/ his current adversary and family for more than three decades saying this about Russia probably doesn’t mean very much if anything. Maybe he’s saying this – now listen up, morons – b/c that’s the way people on sites I got to talk!
That’s right, maybe, just maybe since TPTB completely control the MSM they would put words into the mouth of their Establishment puppet to lure you in before they destroy him. I guess that’s too complex of a scenario, huh?
Want some other obvious examples of Trump being an obvious tool of the intelligence agencies/Deep State?
1) Trump makes a “mistake” in saying that on 9/11 he saw dancing “arabs” and not the real culprits “dancing Israelis”. Are you idiots going to tell me that you think that was a mistake? Now, the issue is dead for all intents and purposes – i.e., for the 99% – as any Internet searches for people celebrating on 9/11 in New Jersey will bring up Trump’s mistake.
2) Trumps foreign policy: gee, and when Trump gets crushed by a Hillary landslide what do you think will happen to all of the positions – e.g. Syria, Russia, etc etc, all the things that eerily seem similar to how many people on sites like the Saker think – what happens to those positions? They will become even bigger losers b/c they will be tied to the Trump disaster. Gee, that’s clever, huh? Almost seems like an intel op, huh? Morons.
3) Trumps ridiculous/cartoonish misogyny/racism etc etc. Gee, you’d think a real candidate for office of POTUS – hold on a second – you’d think a reasonable two year old running for POTUS esp. after the election of the 1st black POTUS and the way the US is becoming a majority minority nation just might pull back on the racist/sexist schtick, huh? Oh but it worked for him in the polls, huh? Would those be the same polls that were rigged that the Bernie butthurt gang were whining about forever? The same polls from nonsense elections in 00 and 04? Here’s a thought, maybe the MSM polls have been BS all along, meaning that the “closeness” of the race was nothing but a psyop to get you idiots to start getting psychically involved? It’s amazing that I should have to explain this all here.
4) The kicker: Trump says Obama created ISIS. Morons here and everywhere who should have known better took that comment at face-value, that this was Trump the savior telling the truth. Hallelujah, right? See, point number 1 and 2. Even though what he said is indeed true now it will forever be tied to this freaking rapist idiot who is going to get killed in the election. This bit of limited hangout will forever be tied to Loser Trump and you freaking idiots have all been here cheering on this intelligence Spectacle b/c you all decided to go on a mental vacation and enjoy the moron show.
Thanks, guys!! By helping legitimize the Spectacle psyop you’ve made the truth ever being a factor in US life that much farther from becoming a reality.
Really, bang up, job, suckers.
It’s true, naivete is dangerous and foolish.
But cynicism is dog-like, it’s root etymology being “canus”, Latin for “dog”.
Where would you lead the non-moronic, is my question?
It’s easy to oppose and ridicule people who are trying to understand, and putting their thoughts out in public to be confirmed or demolished.
It’s another thing to rally them to right action. Which most certainly is NOT to give up, in smug, cynical self-satisfaction.
Please lay out your blueprint for intelligent action, Ron.
please lay out your blueprint for intelligent action, Ron.
I disagree with your premise. Trump’s buffoonery and total unsuitability will work against tarring us all. If there was a genuine candidate, even better another Obama who actually gets in and screws it up royally (to be saved by the next Establishment candidate), would have done a lot more damage. We can all say Trump was an idiot who stole our platforms, now look at (insert imagined candidate here), she is the real deal. His total unsuitability is our excuse next time. The desire for change in 2020 will be even greater, our truths even more self-evident; assuming we are still voting (or living) by then.
And your condescending tone means I certainly won’t be voting for you to lead us.
Sorry Ron, my name dropped off the last post.
You might want to read the points about Syria, Trump, and the United States (i.e. the essay) before hurling dirt clods at the messenger. Your “Bernie butthurts” code-speak gives the game away. Are you interested in the truth, or spreading octopus ink? I notice you mention not one point in favor of our great would-be Leader-ess, and instead insult everyone who reads this blog, blaming us for your confusion. No one’s gonna heed that agitprop, we’ve been talking about “geopolitics” for years and there are all varieties of socio-political animals here. Your spin will be preserved, hopefully, for future historians to analyse just how ridiculous the arguments got towards election day 2016 as the elite showed their outright contempt for us “suckers”. I tip the hat to you, you got it reversed, you did the stand-out, “bang up job”. Well done! You spin a new meme, I’ll give you that: Electing Trump is what the cabal wants? I would write in red pencil: “Prove.” Nice attempt at teaching Orwell a trick or two. What’s so difficult to comprehend? The American people are, as Trump said last debate, “furious”. All of them are suckers? Again, prove it.
While I am on board the Anglo-Zionist, Khazarian Mafia discourse, I resist blaming the Tribe for the state of the Empire. The most I will attribute is that we have overlapping objectives (and a perchance for sociopathy). I don’t buy into the meme that the West/Anglos are innocent children being led by the nose by a hostile fifth column. If anything, the Tribe is being set up to take the blame for when all this falls into a smoking heap. Make no mistake, the American Empire is the British Empire with the capital changed. We are the evil in this world, the Tribe has just flocked to a bird of the same feather.
” Make no mistake, the American Empire is the British Empire ”
… and the British Empire is run by Venetian Bankers (The City of London), and other Jews, Crypto-Jews and Zionists.
Exactly, they especially grabbed power (Bank of Amsterdam – 1609, Holland, Bank of England – 1694, British Empire) with the trans-Atlantic slave trade/exploitation, starting in Madeira. (look inside)
As the West’s man Hitler said, the Tribe is parasitic. You don’t call a dog a canine flea carrier. The flea is a tiny nuisance and food for birds, let alone dying of hunger, without a successful host. I am not denying the leadership role the Tribe plays in Western circles, just that tails don’t actually wag dogs (physics not being on their side). It is the complementary nature of the Tribe’s role that has made them successful within the Empire. But don’t be fooled, this is our Empire, for good or ill.
Regardless of who is wagging whose tail, the Tribe’s role is up to them. What my government does in my name, and the future of the civilisation my ancestors built, is my duty. Scapegoating does not help me accurately determine what is wrong and what I can do about it. I’ll leave criticism of the Tribe to their own acidic tongues, it is easier and stronger for me to criticise my own culture. In fact it is my duty, one so many are failing to carry out.
An instant classic and one of my favourite essays, Saker, amongst your best. And believe me, among the “flyovers” the elites despise, I am hearing similar talk. The elites really are afraid, this time. God bless you and this wonderful website which helped to free so many of us. We don’t know what to do exactly, but we are awake, a nice thing to be, preferable to asleep. One thing’s for sure: the “brilliant” spooks have lost the plot and are complete incompetents. We have the proof in spades now, thank God.
Post script: The following is an edited excerpt of a debate between myself and another commentator posted under a previous Saker update #2, but one I think is even more relevant here under this “Empire” in decay article, given how The Saker has again brought up the ‘hot’ issue of the much hated evil man Trump in this election debate.
My arguments for why it’s critical that all Americans that want peace in the world to go out and vote for Trump in Novembers Presidential Elections.
Now I’ve not claimed to be any the “wiser” than anyone else, but I will say I’m both astonished and deeply disturbed by the basic lack of simple common sense when it comes to assessing and coming to practical grips with political reality, as displayed by a large part of what for lack of a better term, I call the political intelligentsia.
Listening to the tenor of this whole election debate here by people on the left that are otherwise rational and well informed, frankly drives me over the wall.
The reason is essentially this, by arguing that voting doesn’t matter or make any difference anyway and that you will on principle abstain or vote Green or Libertarian, you are in effect by default casting a ballot for Hillary Clinton and for war intentionally or not.
Because like it or not, the fact is that Americans will go out in November and give her a majority and mandate to go to war in exact proportion to those of you that refuse to vote for Trump who says he won’t go to war Russia and China.
Now when you have a gun held to your head and are faced with a choice like that (put aside for a moment the question of if Trump will betray his word or not in the end) what are your options and the only rational thing to do in the moment for survival?
I have never personally liked Trump, and expect I never really will. but I like what he’s saying he will do for world peace, and even more what he says he won’t do (not going to war with Russia and China.
If the guy is elected POUTS and does nothing else but keep the above promise he’ll be a defacto hero and savior to the world.
Now as for the argument that Trump is just a front man for the establishment. Was that then also true of President Kennedy? (not that I’m making any comparisons in their stature) And if so then why did they have to “off” him?
With all due respect, I believe that Dimitry Orlov, while correct in many of his assertions is however severely mistaken when drawing the conclusion that Trump is a vetted candidate for the elites.
While he may be corruptible in the end, It doesn’t make any sense to me why would the deep state, our rulers throw into the ring a brat spoiler that questions everything (however inarticulately) and challenges the very essence and foundations of their financial and militarily expansionist imperialist empire? by dissing and bad mouthing and being down on it’s hegemonic “Free trade” deals and foreign “regime changes” and countless “military adventures” in the middle east?
What are the motives and possible advantages that they could gain by airing all their dirty laundry out in a public forum, all while the press is ganging up and mercilessly bashing him, spreading anti Putin and Russia phobia all in the face of Trump saying he just wants to get along and be friends with Putin, Russia and China, and take on IS terrorism together with them and Iran.
Does any of this make any logical sense? Particularly at the risk of inadvertently making the public much more aware of the vile machinations of the empire and start to question more both it’s domestic and foreign polices.
My own take on Trump is basically this, being a hustler and a self made real-estate billionaire magnate tycoon that’s successfully played the American capitalist game according to it’s own rules (or lack thereof) that rubs shoulders with the powerful politicians of the day and the rich and famous celebrities alike, is for all his wealth and extravagant excesses, defiantly still a complete outsider.
And not (at least a this stage) excepted by the elites as being one of them and in the inner circle of the deep state and part of their political establishment.
He’s a renegade to them and who is not in the loop of the elites deep states political establishment, else he’d be toeing the line and wouldn’t be uttering the anti establishment and anti imperialist rhetoric that he has through out his campaign.
I liken him more to an aberrant anomaly and an out of control drunk (intoxicated by his own brash boastfulness and megalomaniac ego). An uninvited guest brazenly crashing into a polite high society political establishments cocktail party, rudely mouthing off at the esteemed invited guests, insulting them and blatantly spouting truths they don’t ever want to hear and attacking the hosts for their bias against him for wanting him kicked out of the party, all while he’s on a rampage in their fine house of state, wildly smashing their fine crystal wine glasses and precious dinner china and cutlery and turning their white (blue and red) clothed tables upside-down to their utter shock, horror and embarrassment.
(Should make a good script for a Saturday Night Alive skit. don’t you think?)
Just witness at the venomous veracity with which the establishment and the press is daily attacking and trying to forever discredit him, if you don’t believe me.
To what ends do you think that Trump serves his would be “masters” of the universe aims and purpose by doing this?
And when I say “us” I speak both for myself and what I believe are most those of us here that don’t require any more lessons about the fact that “democracy” has been bought and sold and largely usurped by the oligarchs in America and most other western countries.
Meanwhile I’ll reiterate once more my argument that there are no other choices to be had or made here, you either get out there and put an X besides Trumps name on the ballot or forever have it on your and all our collective conscience, all the future victims of war we in absence of taking any viable action effectively have voted Hillary in.
Now it will indeed only be a “symbolic” gesture if trump looses, or wins and betrays us all or is otherwise killed, but nevertheless it will be recorded in history as a protest vote. A plebiscite and sign of popular resistance to the status quo. If it does nothing else but reduces the chances of Hillary winning an overwhelming majority victory and hence a mandate to wage war, it will have achieved something of major significance and tell establishment that at best Americans are a deeply divided nation and people.
And they have to care because they are in the business of having to sell us endless wars and having us sacrifice our blood for them, all while suffering ever increased austerity measures and extreme urban and inner city poverty levels.
That’s why they need to feed us endless propaganda lies and forever create false flag events to keep us all in a state of constant fear in order to maintain their perpetual wars.
Now while I’m half American, I’m sitting here north of the boarder as naturalized Canadian citizen (who can’t vote there), and pulling my hair out, watching you guys split hairs bickering over higher principles, being politically correct or self- justifying just doing absolutely nothing at all, because, well what’s the use in trying and anyways they have us by the balls etc., etc . All while we are smugly sitting in our chairs here indulging ourselves in theoretically debating the merits of voting or not, we are on the brink of an all out world war three with Russia over Syria about to happen at any moment.
And when in fact everything you as citizens of the American empire do (or don’t do) effects us up here and the entire world. As witnessed by the over 100 million that tuned into the the TV election debates around the globe.
So I’m sorry but you do have but one choice, even if it’s no choice other than to get off your high horses and rear ends and go out in November and cast a vote for world peace, for yourselves and the sake of all humanity.
Whatever the outcome, at the very least you will have faced political reality, done what’s necessary on the right side of history, being that voting Trump is the only thing you could possibly do under the circumstances in order to vote warmonger Hillary down if not out.
Face up to it, “We came, we saw, he died” Hillary Clinton is a clinical case of psychopathic insanity, as Commander in Chief, with her finger on the nuclear button we all risk being doomed, thus she must be stopped at any cost.
When the sky’s turn black under the shadow of American coalition bombers and the streets run red with blood in Syria, Iran and Yemen as Hillary has promised us all and there are glowing red and orange mushroom clouds over Europe and North America, this whole insane election debate will have become a totally redundant one anyway.
But it’s entirely your call to make. I rest my case.
Couldn´t agree more. Saker is not only a great military analyst, he´s also a great political analyst. God bless you, man.
I stole this headline off a utube channel by some guy named Lionel; ELECTION 2016, Vile, putrid, corrupt and wildly entertaining!! And I will add, how perfectly American. Yeah, we’re a mess over here that is for sure, but we are not near as dumb as many think.
There is a definite ‘anti-establishment movement’ afoot and a great number of people are more aware and awake than the establishment is comfortable with. The lies, lies, lies, going back to the GWB weapons of mass destruction that got us into the Iraq war, and one lie after another since that time. Scandals, one after another including the IRS, and then this agency and then that one, government employees going to Las Vegas spending the hell out of our tax money and it turns out they can’t even be fired. The other day the pentagon reports that they can’t account for six-trillion dollars, and it just goes on and on. That doesn’t even begin to touch on the Hillary Clinton crap we are expected to swallow.
So does that make the anti-establishment, ‘America First’ ‘Make America Great Again’ “Wouldn’t be great if we got along with Russia’ Trump the man for the job? Not so much, but it makes him the man of the hour.
Please allow me to attempt to explain. Trump is the candidate whose platform more aligns with the international bankers(IMF, BIS)plans for the multi-lateral financial system that is now in the process of coming online. The US dollar as the only reserve currency is being slowly phased out and the SDR is being slowly being phased in. The ‘Make America Great Again” meme is code for get ready to have the USA play a diminished role in international affairs. Without that reserve currency status the advantage we had (crank up the presses) gone, the stark truth is we simply will not be able to afford it. Good.
On the other hand as the dollar begins to diminish in value, jobs will start to return, and our manufactured good will be more competitive. There is much, much more to the game but that peak at the tip of the iceberg should alert you the the fact that Trump’s pitch is in line with Mr. Global’s agenda and is being sold, so that the USA, USA, USA, Americans will more easily accept their diminished role in international affairs and loss of empire and the idea that the status as the USA as being the only indispensable nation is, kaput.
As you all can well imagine, that doesn’t sit very well with a certain segment of the elite. the next few months are going to be a very dangerous time frame. Pray for Trump, hang on to your hats.
The Indian situation
It might well be that the war theatre will shift to India.
Already there is “tension” between India and Pakistan and now between India and China over water.
It is a perfect moment for the empire to shift the jihads to Pakistan to create some trouble in Kashmir. China supports Pakistan and India foolishly went over to the evil side. Newspapers are dominated by US propaganda and KIllary takes the headlines, beautiful pics of her smiling etc. and most people are in favour of her. My friends are convinced that Trump will start war . When I asked which country he will attack they could not answer properly but they mention something about “umanitarian organisations will mobilize the people and he will crush them and then invade the Middle East.
The empire by supporting India in the conflict can reach China. Make the Indians bleed in their stead for the fulfilment of their dirty politics. The advantage is that the war scene is farther away, after all Syria is too close to Europe and Israhell. Setting up India against Pakistan and China could be the ultimate because Russia will have to take a stand.
The Bricks were not baked hard enough it seems Hopefully it is just my imagination running wild.
There isn’t any doubt that Clinton Win. The question is. Could the Cold War turns Hot?
Wall Street Journal Finally Lashes Out “The Press Is Burying Hillary Clinton’s Sins”
Even the Wall Street Journal is now fed up with the biased media coverage of the 2016 Presidential election as revealed by a scathing article written by Kimberly Strassel, a member of their editorial board. As Strassel points out, it’s almost impossible to turn on the TV without hearing about Trump’s “lewd” comments while coverage of Hillary “uniformly ignores the flurry of bombshells” inherent in the various WikiLeaks, FOIA releases and FBI interviews.
If average voters turned on the TV for five minutes this week, chances are they know that Donald Trump made lewd remarks a decade ago and now stands accused of groping women.
But even if average voters had the TV on 24/7, they still probably haven’t heard the news about Hillary Clinton: That the nation now has proof of pretty much everything she has been accused of.
It comes from hacked emails dumped by WikiLeaks, documents released under the Freedom of Information Act, and accounts from FBI insiders. The media has almost uniformly ignored the flurry of bombshells, preferring to devote its front pages to the Trump story. So let’s review what amounts to a devastating case against a Clinton presidency…”
The headlines are bizarre, but this is to be expected of the yellow press. they have always been the tools of Liberals and subversives. And of course, the US wants as many Russian abortions as possible to keep its population artificially low and weak.
That is not to mention the American media’s attacks on Trump which are so blatantly obvious as propaganda that a child could see through it!
According to the New York Times, Clinton likes to tell crowds, “I am the last thing standing between you and the Apocalypse.” But, in truth, she represents the greatest threat of apocalypse in the world today.
Vote Green, wherever you live, if you want to keep on living.
Appreciate your sentiments here but pray tell me how logically that works when in reality, “Greens” don’t have a snowballs chance in hell of getting elected, given the level political consciousness in America today? If anything a vote for Stein will only help guarantee a victory and mandate for Hillary and the very “Apocalypse” your seeking to avert. Ever heard of strategically voting someone out in order to avert a disaster from occurring?
People voting for the Green Party tend to be liberals, who would normally support the Demorat Party candidate for War Criminal in Chief, absent any “progressive” alternative.
So voting for Stein would undermine Hitlery’s political support base.
Please sign the petition and forward to all. Thank you.
“Dear Mr. President Putin,
As members of the global reality-based community, we’d like to extend our appreciation and support for the Russian Federation’s decision to provide humanitarian and military assistance to Syria, its armed forces and its democratically elected leader, President Bashar al-Assad, in their fight against international US-backed terrorists…..
Thanks for this. Could you post it in the cafe?
It might be a bit hidden here.
There are many of us who respect President Putin and a good number who pray for him to have wisdom and understanding. The west is like a drunken whore, syphilitic and ranting as her scabs inside her corrupt body start to ooze poison.
We have profaned the Name of the Holy One and unless there is widespread repentance, Russia may do to the west what the Egyptians and Babylonians did to ancient Israel.
There have been many a war between powerful imperial states throughout history, as well as many a war that could be categorized as ‘global’ or ‘world war’ in addition to the conventional two in the 20th century (WWI & WWII). It is an intrinsic feature of the historical process that major power conflict/war &/or global-world war always occurs during a transition in the global power structure & configuration of the international order. The only question is: what kind of war will this ‘world war’ be? The word that is on every persons mind when contemplating this is the dreaded ‘nuclear’ possibility. Otherwise world war is already here, it has begun, a conflict is underway between major global powers for the establishment of a ‘new world order.’ We even know how to define it, it is a confrontation between the unipolar ‘Atlanticist’ force, the Anglosphere (Anglo-American Empire), & the multipolar ‘Eurasianist’ force of emerging global contenders (Russia & China). The current US presidential race is very much a sideshow & that will become obvious when it is all over & the next president assumes office, whoever that turns out to be. The ruling establishment within the US, the ‘deep state’ or military industrial complex + Wall Street is in agreement over the necessity of destroying Russia & China (plus Iran) as a matter of priority, the issue for them is the same factor that causes everyone else so much anxiety – how far are they prepared to go i.e. maybe nuclear? They will also project an outward impression that they are in a dilemma over this matter & are deliberating over whether to risk a nuclear first strike attempt against Russia, in so doing attempting to gain concessions from the Kremlin in the form of a capitulation. The only conclusion to all of this that the Anglo-American Empire/Anglosphere will accept is total capitulation from both Russia & China. This it will not get & therefore a confrontation is absolutely inevitable. Direct military confrontation between the US & Russia is going to happen & at this point nothing short of divine intervention can stop it. At risk of coming across as alarmist, I am only attempting to inject a little more realism into this discourse, as in my humble opinion much of the discourse over the Trump vs Killary presidential race is an unnecessary largely irrelevant distraction. All that can be gained with a potential Trump victory is perhaps a little more time – a slight delay from the inevitable, but I would assure any detractors out there – mark what I say here: if Trump wins & really does attempt a reconciliation with Russia, he will be assassinated. Remember that. As for Killary, she is being set up to take office in order to be thrown under the bus later on, she will take the blame for WWIII & probably will not live to tell the tale either. I suspect at some point, when the whole endeavor goes south, she will have an accident, or a fatal brain hemorrhage. For what it is worth, I do not think this conflict will go nuclear, for tactical reasons more than anything else, & that the conflict will be asymmetrical all the way. Those who are not sure what that means can consider this as a simple illustration: the US/NATO declare war against Russia when conducting the fascist coup d’etat in Kiev, Feb 2014 – Russia responds by intervening in Syria & taking on the Anglo-American Empire in the Middle East rather than closer to home. Russia responds to US threats to intervene in Syria through the deployment of advanced aerospace defense systems – the US responds to this by intervening in Yemen in attempt to prevent the ‘resistance axis’ (the so-called ‘Shia crescent, i.e. Iran + allied forces, Hezbollah, Houthis etc.) pushing up into Saudi Arabia in an effort to induce destabilization within the Wahabbite Kingdom. And so on and so on. This is how this thing appears to be proceeding, indirect attacks & campaigns, whilst getting closer in proximity all the time, until eventually one day: direct engagement. That day will come, when it does it will be a day of wreckoning for the Anglo-American Empire. In my estimation, the entire edifice will begin to implode at that point.
It’s really frustrating that even critics of the US’ uneducated elites lack basic education. The following sentence is to such a degree absurd that it cannot even be regarded as satirical.
“The history of empires is full of situations were one part of the ruling class turned against the other one (SA vs SS, Trotskists vs Stalinists, etc.).”
Neither the SA nor the SS have ever been part of the “ruling class”. Nor has the SA ever turned against the SS.
The SA, as the one of the two Nazi terror brigades was in June/July 1934 sacrificed by Hitler (because of the national-bolshevist elements in their ideological orientation) in exchange for the ruling class’es subordination under the construction of the “Führerstaat”. Since then the ruling class (the Ruhrbarons Thyssen=Krupps=Flicks and the Prussian Juncker and army) were part of something which took an imperialistic turn after 1936. (Germany during the Republic of Weimar can hardly be called “an Empire”).
Russia during the time of the civil wars cannot be called imperialistic either. And the question of who the “ruling class” was, was exactly at that time what the war was about. To call Stalin and Trotski representatives of different fractions of a ‘Russian Empire’s ruling class’, is as well out of touch with the struggles, breaks and conflicts of that time.
The unprecise and historically unreflected use of social and political terms show that it is hardly possible that there might be any serious potential of a political change in the US. Waiting that somebody will climb down from the top and set things right, is in vain. Countries cannot change, if nobody from below has even the ambition to take over. If people even lack a language to define a political state worth fighting for, they are absolutely helpless cases.
Thus the rest of the world has to stand up against US despotism and end it, by fighting the dominant role of the Dollar and by preventing the US’ military’s range of move outside of the US. If fear there will be little help from within the US.
Well, no offense, Anja Böttcher, but ‘absolutely helpless cases’? What kind of foul language is that from someone from a country (Germany) which was horribly misled and, what’s more, very much still is?
“A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool” – William Shakespeare.
I think I’ve read more from you (I’m from Germany myself), and what you wrote was mostly pretty agreeable, but it sure seems to me that what you accuse others of, you’re actually very much yourself (too, albeit in other ways).
“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
The German Empire ended with the 1918 coup d’état, when it was in essence taken over by the British Empire, aka the AngloZionists, and is run by them, and its German/Yiddish collaborators, ever since (and YES, that includes the NAtionalsoZIalisten).
There’s nothing wrong with the Saker’s remark about the SA/SS and the Jewish Bolsheviks-Trotskyists/the Stalinists (the SA-Röhm were the fooled ones, the SS were the ‘elites’), but there’s something very wrong with your, and that of many (West) Germans, (awkward) knowledge of real history, i.e. not the crap, pack of lies, the AngloZionist system tells/told you (and e.g. the average RT Deutsch public, seen their comments).
Your gullibility and unawareness is actually in many ways worse than that of many patriotic Americans, of whom you know very little either, it seems. Again, no offense, it fooled me too, but the whole system (and its JM$M) is (increasingly obviously now) simply monstrously lying, and more than we were realizing, has always been like that.
In addition to purposely taking down the US economy, confidence in govt and the ruling class is also purposely degraded through deserved moral outrage. Both are also occurring in the UK and in Europe. It is being done precisely because humanity desires to resist a big, immoral bully. And the path to resistance is all marked out for you. Even the corporate media tells you that Russia and China are resisting. But are they resisting neoliberalism and the global oligarchy which is its goal?
At the international level nations are robbed of their sovereignty through the international institutions that usurp their functions, the Fed/IMF system, WTO, BIS, and TTIP, etc. Neither the citizen’s self-determination nor his vote can influence monetary, economic or trade policy decided by these institutions.
At the national level citizens are stripped of many of the means of survival through neoliberal austerity. Economic neoliberalism strips all powers, protections and rights from labor while empowering capital and removing all hindrances. Unions, privacy in communications, press independent of the megacorps– diminishing. Govt functions to be taken over directly by the corporations and made less accessible through cost: education, medical care, postal service, public transport, and utilities. And increasingly, the food supply.
So, Russia and China are against the international institutions, right? They both belong to the institutions and China’s Eight Immortal families (fabulously wealthy oligarchics) are happy to have increased their voting rights within the IMF. They are developing their own TTIP, TPP trade agreement for Asia, of which the Silk Road is a part.
Russia’s Putin at Valdai: “I am certain that if there is a will, we can restore the effectiveness of the international and regional institutions system. We do not even need to build anything anew, from the scratch; this is not a “greenfield,” especially since the institutions created after World War II are quite universal and can be given modern substance, adequate to manage the current situation.” Putin says he’s for national sovereignty but never speaks of the desirability for nations to regain trade sovereignty, let alone economic or currency sovereignty.
So at least Russia & China are against neoliberal austerity at home, right? Israel Shamir: “While agreeing with and supporting Putin’s foreign policy, the Communists, the Socialists and a sizeable minority of the ruling United Russia party disagree with Putin’s liberal economic and financial policies. They would like to suppress the oligarchs, to introduce currency controls, to re-nationalise privatised industries and to strengthen the social state. But they can’t do it: even if they were to gain a clear majority in the elections, Putin would still be entitled to ask, say, liberal Medvedev or arch-liberal Kudrin to form a government.”
Paul Craig Roberts & Michael Hudson: http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/08/11/will-russia-reject-neoliberalism/
The following article shows Putin’s continuing application of neoliberal austerity at home. Notable details: According to the article there are now 77 billionaires in Russia, where there were none before Putin. (I haven’t verfied this). The firing of 9,000 medical professionals in Moscow has caused a spike in the death rate. Privatizing of the medical system is ongoing. https://www.opendemocracy.net/od-russia/ilya-matveev/russia-inc
So is the conflict between the US and Russia & China real, or only a way to camouflage that the “multipolarity” which will win is really only the always-intended regional adminstration of the NWO?
“The growing naval and aerial threat of the Chinese military has US technology to thank, not only by direct military transfer (as a Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory whistleblower demonstrated the Clinton administration did in the 1990s) but by indirect (and illegal) transfers via Israel. And just last month, a congressional investigation uncovered evidence that the US government was planning to give Russia high level military technology for use in training their troops as part of the FY2015 budget, even as they were talking about tough sanctions and dire consequences for Russia’s annexation of Crimea.” https://www.corbettreport.com/the-great-decoupling-how-the-west-is-engineering-its-own-downfall/
Penelope, it’s nearly impossible to argue against.
No matter who becomes the symbolic “leader” Nov. 8, the Deep State will still be in control. Trump must know this. I think he is a decoy for the street-dummies.
Although I prefer Trump particularly for his boldness and honesty, learning a lesson from Obama is highly important from his “hope and change” as the first unconventional president that will change the status quo for the betterment of humanity. The world yet became incresingly disastrous under his leadership. What is to stop Trump from continuing wars around the world once elected “by way of deception”?
A close look at Obama in 2008 would have revealed a rather conventional career politician presidential candidate whose only difference was being a black man.
A close look at Trump indicates someone distinctly unconventional presidential candidate, certainly not a career politician, opposed for not being part of the system of payoffs, tradeoffs, and indebtedness that ‘earn’ elitist political legitimacy.
While its impossible to say if Trump would stop American warmongering, he has no personal stake in that neocon program beyond what they can intimidate or trick out of him.
The math is simple;
Never Trump = Only Hilary, and Hilary likely means WW IV getting quite warm, if not outright hot.
Trump 2016 = Never Hilary; she goes down, and there’s a decent chance for peace.
Your narrative as you have painted can only remain intact if you can resolve two divergent forces —
* US Liberal-facist press and their Democratic couriers.
* vs US NeoCons (as you call them) who oppose liberalism.

I have considered this also. It seems that the character traits that are required to live in a civilised society are all Feminine (cooperation, collaboration, compromise, caring). Whereas the Masculine traits are required during times of danger (security, defence, protection, dominance). Even though I am a feminist (among many other labels), I often struggle with my Sisters over this point. There is nothing wrong with the Paternal instinct, as your posts states it is one of the main reasons we made it off the Savanah. But since the advent of Civilisation, these skills are required less and less. Makes you wonder if many of the ‘crisis’ over the last century/millennia/epoch are manufactured to maintain the Paternal order past its used-by date. As with everything else, it is the balance of the feminine/masculine that provides the ideal scenario. Just voting in people with ovaries does not fix the problem; Thatcher had bigger balls than me. It is a cultural shift that needs to come first, founded in the economic realm, that will change all relations in our society.
Well said … IMO the ancient Chinese philosophy (for lack of a better term) of Yin Yang … feminine and masculine energy … is a fascinating reference point that permits one to transcend the clutter and clamor of events of a single lifetime. With any luck the universe has arrived on the threshold of an epoch change in dominance … from Yang(masculine) since time immemorial to Yin(feminine) dominance. Who knows … in time a harmonious balance may materialize.
oops! … forgot to post the link that explains the history of Yin Yang

They say before Civilisation, we were a Maternal society. There is overwhelming evidence of Mother Goddess cults before History, with pregnant idols found in burial sites all over the world. It seems Civilisation is the problem; it is the corralling of wealth (excess production) that forged the Ring of Power. If we listen to Prof. Tolkien, we need to destroy this power concentrate to be free. In essence the problem is Money; the ability to own more than you can carry. I don’t know what the next phase is in our social evolution, but anyway you slice it, it ends up with small bands of humans living the simple life.
Tell you the truth, I look forward to it.
Remember the revolution of 1800, the real solution to 1984. Basic history.
Clinton and Trump may be poor stand-ins for Madison and Jefferson, but the issues, the mudslinging, even the shadow of terrorism, have their antecedents in the lead-up to the Revolution of 1800. Clintonistas associate Trump with Russia; Madison associated Jefferson with France. The analogous behaviors are telling.
Madison is today considered the model Constitutionalist, but the state apparatus he and his fellow Federalists conceived ostensibly to protect the Constitution became the basis for today’s abuses. Jefferson protected democracy but didn’t have a clear idea on how to help it better police the Republic, so didn’t do a very good job of ending antidemocratic processes and locking them out once in power.
Nonetheless, in 1800, Jefferson won. In 2016 Trump must be allowed to win. Anything else is treason. The Constitution must not be overthrown and the American People must be freely and fairly permitted to elect Trump for President as all indicators suggest he would be in an honest election.
Whoops, conflated federalists Madison with Adams… sorry. The election was between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. So much for basic history advocacy; that was a major error; totally.
Still, the basic idea is on track; the Federalists instituted the mechanisms of state that today suggests the anti-federalists were right to oppose them; the U.S. government has evolved into a kind of monarchy.
Jefferson and James Madison were Federalists with buyers remorse and founded the Democratic-Republican party to oppose the Federalists in 1791 culminating with a showdown between John Adams in the election of 1800.
Again, the parallels between the election of 1800 and 2016 are striking right down to the acrimony and negative campaigning between personalities who themselves were almost secondary to core issues of statism versus state rights, which today might be recast as Deep Statism versus individual rights.
You are now the third blogger who is running an article saying something similar to the Neocon-Neoliberal cabal being the front for the pro-Zionist-Anglo-sphere Elites Deep State,which is anti-Russian and globalist, as opposed to some other portion of the Deep State, which is not anti-Russian and is not pro-globalism. But since Trump is firmly aligned with Israel, and since Israel is the beneficiary of the pro-Zionist-Anglo-sphere Elites (and globalist bankster’s) agenda, isn’t this thesis internally inconsistent? What is the fulcrum on which this distinction can be configured?
I think it’s confusing, with overlap, but I see the main distinction to be pre-Bush43 — like Bush41 or Regan or Nixon even, and Bush43 and after. Kissinger, for example, as a war criminal and all that, but wanted to avoid blowing up the world and was more realist than ideologue. The Bush43 guys are what Reagan would call ‘the crazies in the basement’.
Israel is problematic. It has it’s own agenda, and that aligns with much of the US, and it has gotten into the US government, aligned with the neocons (and neolibs) way too much, but it is a tool of the US, and an attack dog who threatens the ‘master’. How much Trump is aligned with Israel and how much is playing a game is not clear to me, but he’s not going to go up against Israel if there is no payoff, and he benefits from it.
Trump is still a wild card to a great extent, and he could turn out to be good in some respects, or universally awful. My best expectations now is somewhat better for foreign policy, if he can pull it off, and terrible domestically (with Clinton mostly bad domestically and fatal for foreign — but both are with the wealthy oligarchy and anti working class, like both major parties are).
The whole situation is chaotic and destructive, with a lot of ‘every man for himself’, and we are way down the rabbit hole, so it’s hard to say anything with much confidence.
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
_W. B. Yeats
Slow down folks,
I want to say the American people just did a remarkable thing. We were swamped by oceans of lies from the media, from Hollywood from all directions, yet we saw through the lies and defeated the Evil Empire (Clinton and her brigade of liars)
…and before you brave sensible people attack us for being stupid Please remind me when your nation overcame such heavy propaganda and changed your government without a revolution.
We did great and I salute All people who risked their future to stand up to PoliticalCorrectness and laugh in the face of the ‘progressive’s criminal violence.
Well done Patriots
Bobby, I for one think that you indeed have moved mountains.
I have more respect for you than I did when the US people also dug deep, dumped Clinton and elected Obama.
That did not turn out all that well. But of course the whole sane world wishes that, this time, the choice of Trump by the US people will justify the superhuman effort required to even have made it.
