I just got home from a 6 hour long trip to get my daughter to college. On the way home, I was alone in the van, driving through the huge Ocala National Forest, and I wanted to listen to some music and just think. While I was going through the 32GB of music on my player I realize that there were two artists whom I used to love but whose
Note: the video has two dates indicated on it: 2013 and 2015. Clearly person(s) who posted it (the YouTube channel Военная Мощь России) made some kind of mistake. No bid deal, as either way, the display is superb.
Note by the Saker: as the Russian Airborne Forces are celebrating their 85th anniversary I decided to publish here an article written in the July-August edition of Military Review which describes this tragic but very important event. by Sergeant Michael D. Wilmoth, US Army Reserve, and Lieutenant Colonel Peter G. Tsouras, US Army Reserve, Retired In four days of desperate fighting, from 29 February to 3 March 2000, a large

Today Tatzhit Mikhailovich posted on his Youtube channel the “Ballad about Struggle” or “Bаллада о Bорьбе” of the famous Russian bard Vladimir Vysotskii. This song literally changed my life. I heard it for the first time when I was 17, it was played for me by a guy who ended up changing my life. He quoted Ivan Solonevich to me and said “there are times in a country’s history when
Three nice videos: the first one has Givi dancing at his birthday party and since the tune he is dancing to is a modernized version of a traditional Cossack song, I added a second video with footage of the Russian military with a Russian-Chechen interpretation of the same song. The last video is the original Cossack version (which then repeats the “Russian-Chechen” version). Enjoy!
61.31% of the Greek people rejected almost the same package of austerity measures which then Alexis Tsipras suddenly accepted. And now an overwhelming majority of Greek MPs voted in favor of the reform package, with 229 voting ‘Yes,’ 64 voting ‘No’ and 6 abstaining. Since the 6 abstaining did not abide by the will of the people which clearly rejected these measures, I submit that 235 MPs voted ‘Yes’ and
Dear friends, Today I want to share with you an excerpt from an absolutely amazing text which, to my knowledge, has ever been published anywhere on the English-language Internet: the book “The Pillar and Ground of the Truth: An Essay in Orthodox Theodicy in Twelve Letters” by Father Pavel Florensky (1882-1937), specifically, a part of the second chapter of the book entitled “Letter two: Doubt“. In this excerpt, Father Paul
Dear friends, Today I want to draw your attention to a group of people which I sincerely regard as true heroes of Novorussia. There are three theses which I have been repeating on this blog over and over and over again. They are: 1. Russia and the USA are already at war 2. This war is 80% informational, 15% economic and 5% military 3. Russia does not want, but is
We live in a strange world. Check out just the recent news: putative European “democrats” support Nazis and don’t seem to notice that the latter are using weapons of war, including chemical munitions, multiple-rocket launchers and ballistic missiles, against cities. We live in a world were it is apparently quite normal for the IMF/ECB/etc. to continue to send money to a bankrupt country in the midst of the civil war
I spend all day away from home (and I can attest that driving with a sprained ankle sucks!). As always, music kept me going and today it was the always moving voice of Roger Waters. I have been listening to Waters since I was 10 years old and ever since his emotion-filled music has always accompanied me through the good and the bad. Today, just as it was getting dark,
As is so often the case, there is crazy shit happening in the US of A. Yesterday I just took a quick look at the RT news feed and I saw this: Following the shooting in Charleston, some creep shot another 7 people in West Philly and some other creep shot another 10 in Detroit. I already know what is going to happen next: there will be new appeals to
Since I am sitting at home stuck in my chair I might as well take the time to thank one supporter from Switzerland whose initials are ML who has been sending me a donation each month. He never wrote to me and I only know his name because it is one the wire transfer. ML – if you are reading this, thanks a lot for your kind support! The Saker
Time has come to remind everybody of a few basic things about this blog: 1) I don’t “endorse” everything I post here 2) The only stuff I “endorse” is the articles I sign with my name 3) Controversy is good if it makes you think Two articles I posted recently got me into hot water with some of you: Andrew Kroybko’s article on Armenia and Belarus and Sakari Linden’a article on
Absolutely amazing news today. See for yourself: Poroshenko appoints Saakashvili as governor of Odessa Uncle Sam tries to get the Nobel Peace Prize for Poroshenko This is so crazy as to actually be comical. The good news is that if they have truly “gone fishing” then they are desperate. The bad news is that these lunatics can start a war. God help us all… Have a great-week end everybody! The
This is too ridiculous, too obscene and too obviously grotesque, to be true. But yet it is. The AngloZionists got so mad at the US defeat (by Qatar) and victory by Russia in the competition to host the 2018 football/soccer World Cup and by the fact that FIFA agreed to have a vote on the Israeli membership, that they ordered a worldwide series of arrests of FIFA officials. The British
