Devastatingly funny putdown of the US leadership.
He’s a natural comic.
This time “wet pants”.
Next time colitis or worse.
Most importantly, Russia just staked out the Western Hemisphere for a taste of what the US has been doing all around Russian borders.
Can’t wait to see the reaction (invest in Depends XL for Pompeo and the gang in DC) when the nuclear subs from Russia start their Caribbean exercises. Freedom of navigation operations in the skies and waters of the Hemisphere.
James Monroe is setting a Guinness record for RPMs in the grave.
Petulant pompous punk, Pompeo poops in his pamper. Going by what the Iranian general Qasem said about Americans wearing pampers, that sentence might become a reality in the near future.
Rick Sanchez explains why Russian Nuclear Bombers are in Venezuela
Americans need to know the history of broken US promises that led to Russia’s encirclement.
During the re-unification of Germany in 1990, the US offered an “iron-clad guarantee” that NATO
would expand “not one inch” toward Russia. When Soviet Premier Gorbachev agreed. Rick
Sanchez explains how NATO’s subsequent history gives Russia a right feel threatened. Then,
former US diplomat Jim Jatras joins to share his insights and expertise.
Actually the Monroe Doctrine before Lincoln was assassinated and US monetary and financial policy returned to the British fold with the 1875 Specie Resumption Act which made Wall Street a branch office of the City of London, was meant to keep the British Empire and its gunboat debt collectors away from former Spanish colonies who’d earlier sympathized with the American Revolution in their fight for independence but were subverted by the British to prevent an emerging alliance with the early United States. Bolívar’s role as a British agent of influence during the War of Independence was to wrest South America away from Spain only to open the door to British trade hegemony and piracy in the Caribbean and Atlantic, as a base from which to continue harassing US maritime interests. The Federalistas, who favored a form of government more akin to US constitutional order and economic decolonization as prescribed by Alexander Hamilton (of Caribbean origin), Mathew Carey and Henry Clay, were mostly eliminated with Bolívar’s rise to power, which was followed by massive blood purges. The “anti-imperialism” Venezuelan “Bolivarianos” attribute to Bolívar is myopically applied retroactively to a US imperialism that didn’t exist in the early 1800s, when England was still pounding a struggling American republic and burned down Washington during the war of 1812. The imperial power of the moment, after Spain was ejected from the Americas, was England, whose political values Bolívar openly espoused (he corresponded with Jeremy Bentham) and aspired to represent as ruler of a satrapy under British administration. Bolívar’s hostility toward the United States was based on the anti-American bias of his British mentors, so it was actually imperialist, not anti-imperialist. The Third-World model of exporting raw materials cheaply and importing expensive finished goods under terms of trade dictated by foreign financial powers, which the American Revolution was primarily against, goes back to Bolívar’s adherence to British colonialism, which makes the “Bolivarian” stance of the current Venezuelan leadership doubly pathetic. Of course over time the US has increasingly turned to the imperialist values it once overturned, so any criticism of the former British system now applies to American trade and financial practices as well. China and Russia are right in helping Venezuela, which sorely needs it and with corrective measures could return to a functioning economy. American threats and sanctions against Venezuela certainly aggravate the situation, and Colombia’s ludicrous aspiration to “join NATO” is an added element of danger that justifies Venezuelan concerns. However the assumption that Russian military assistance to Venezuela is a blow against the Monroe Doctrine is a simplistic reading of that doctrine, and the idea that Venezuela’s economic shambles is purely a result of American sanctions whitewashes the role of the Foro de São Paulo’s leftist globalism which pushes a purely re-distributionist model of socialism as incompetent as Bolivar’s benighted pipe dreams. As much as tropical socialists would like to elevate Bolívar to revolutionary sainthood, Marx himself described him as a “Napoleon of retreats” for his cowardly battle tactics, and disparaged his autocratic inclinations as a self-serving member of the “criollo” nobility. Also note that Russia is no longer a communist country, so to read into its military cooperation with Venezuela some kind of political affinity plays into the new McCarthyism with which US neocons demonize Russia.
You present rational and interesting arguments.
I have been thinking a lot about studying this era of Latin American history, and know reading biographies of Bolivar isn’t good enough. I believe you aren’t just making sh*t up, and believe you have studied the subject.
Can you point me to some references?
“whose political values Bolívar openly espoused (he corresponded with Jeremy Bentham) and aspired to represent as ruler of a satrapy under British administration.”
Do not forget San Martin, who was another British puppet. A freemason himself, in 1811 and before embarking to South America to “liberate” Argentina, Chile and Peru, he fought under the orders of the British General William Carr Beresford in Spain. Beresford had tried, a few years before and unsuccessfully, to take Buenos Aires.
In 1799 Alexander von Humboldt launched a scientific project known as the Botanical Expedition, beginning in Venezuela and ranging from Peru to Mexico through present-day Colombia, as a five-year biological, geological and meteorological survey of the Americas culminating, on his way back to Europe, with a visit to Thomas Jefferson which led to the Lewis and Clark expedition in the new American Republic. At the same time his brother Wilhelm von Humboldt was carrying out the Prussian Reforms which produced Göttingen and other jewels of the scientific, cultural and political revolution led by humanist republicans including Schiller, Goethe and Beethoven in Europe and Benjamin Franklin in the United States (whose discoveries in electricity Beethoven celebrates with Schiller’s Götterfunken in his 9th Symphony)—(Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, on the other hand, also titled The Modern Prometheus, brazenly mocks Franklin who was fondly known as “the American Prometheus” by European republicans supporting the American Revolution). Without delving into the details of historical realities beyond the scope of a quick comment on a public blog, this thumbnail sketch simply goes to show what a huge portion of the actual history of civilization we have been denied by British revisionist historiography, within which the current wave of “fake news” is but the most recent case of the centuries-old gas-lighting tradition of Perfidious Albion against the entire human race. This assault on truth even finds its way into the physical sciences with Newton’s earlier bowdlerization of Leibniz, whose superior epistemology was adopted by European humanists, American revolutionaries and even Chinese philosophers (just found this: https://scholarsarchive.byu.edu/ccr/vol77/iss77/5/). That is the source of the Bolívar mythology and also the “Black Legend” against Spanish civilization in the Americas (which also included, lest we forget, more than half of present US territory), which Bolívar was a traitor to. Odd that this should come up in response to Mr. Ostashko’s trolling of neocon alarm over the Tu-160 visit to Venezuela, but, as in almost every single detail of current world affairs, an indication of how far off the mark even “woke,” “red-pilled” observers can be regarding the actual players behind deep-state shadow puppetry. The role of British intelligence in operations against both Trump and Russia, to prevent a coming together of forces that have always lined up against the British Empire, is a more fruitful subject to take up than the petty chagrin of their neocon minions over Russia’s (and China’s) rightful and historical challenge to their hegemony.
I agree with you completely Paracletus.
But just try making the point to Latin Americans, that the break from Spain was a mistake, as I did.
Years ago doing field-work at the grassroots level in Bolivia, the country that spawned the finest political leadership South and North of Cuba in the Western Hemisphere, I had the chance to make that case to one of the founders of MAS. In between sips of the finest mate (that would be Paraguay leafs, for those of us who like it bitter), this good gentleman told me that that would have been sad indeed. Tells you how deep the Black Legend, demonizing all things Spanish has sunk into the soul of Spanish-speaking people.
Understanding the functioning of the Black Legend and the psychological war of cultural destruction (Hybrid War, is the word in vogue today) it entails, is crucial for all of us who see in Russia, the only real hope we have to stop the nightmare prophecy of one Cecil Rhodes, namely the British colonization (Anglobalisation) of the world under the US flag.
There is something eerie in the historical breakup of of Spanish-speaking America, as if it is a model for the breakup of the Russian-speaking world. If Albion’s pirate tricks could get Spanish-speaking people to dislike things Spanish, why would these world champions at piracy, slave trading and colonialism not try to get Russian-speaking people to detest all things Russian?
Last thought: the US “Deep State” is just another word for a British lobby. The Israel lobby is bad enough, but lets me say this (if not on this blog, where?), for all their vices, the Zionist Jews have one virtue, they are in our faces, and the Talmud is adamantly clear, they don’t hide behind a mask of WASPish hypocrisy. Plus, they don’t pretend they are Christians, do they?
Sursum Corda Paracletus,
It wasn’t so much the break with Spain as the anti-American posture they copped from the British, thanks in part to Bolívar. An integrated Ibero-America in alliance with the original Yankee firebrands against British (or more generally European oligarchical) colonialism/imperialism would have set the entire hemisphere apart, on a path to full realization of a human potential that even today remains in its infancy. That’s what world humanism had hoped for in supporting the American Revolution, and the British knew that they had to stop. Spain had problems of its own, having been bled by Fugger usury and war in the Netherlands, which caused colonial looting to benefit not even Spain but the bankers they were indebted to (who took up residence in the City of London with the 1660 Stuart Restoration). Criollo independentistas had good reason to break from Spain, but independently of its religious aspects the Leyenda Negra robbed Latin Americans of the cutting-edge cultural and scientific renaissance they’d been engaged in through projects like the aforementioned Botanical Expedition. South American astronomers were in correspondence with their European counterparts to assemble a fuller picture of the universe around us. Latin American composers were producing works on a par with Haydn and Mozart, but such accomplishments are now denigrated by the cultural-relativist left as “cultural genocide” by “dead white males,” even though the indigenous population encountered by the Conquistadors had sunken from earlier standards of civilization to cannibalistic endless war similar to what the Deep State has in mind for Africa and the Middle East, spreading northward to eat at the “Eurasian Heartland” geopolitician Halford Mackinder warned his fellow oligarchs against. Zbigniew Brzezinski’s “Arc of Crisis” strategy to bring down the USSR through Islamic fundamentalism grew naturally into head-chopping frenzies in Iraq, Libya and Syria to bring about the “New American Century,” an updated version of Pax Britannica using American muscle. A huge picture to put together, but a necessary perspective to see that the neocon freak-out over the Tu-160s in Venezuela doesn’t amount to much more than grand-guignol for the entertainment of “progressives” who blindly support Chavismo just because it’s anti-American. Gloating over James Monroe’s imagined discomfort over Russian infringement of the Monroe Doctrine (which was actually the work of master statesman and anti-British organizer John Quincy Adams) simply shows a shallow understanding of where we’re coming from historically and therefore where we need to go. The Great Deceiver is pleased when its victims are baited into back-street skirmishes that distract them from the civilizational struggle going on in the world boulevard. Such is the unique talent of Perfidious Albion.
Cunningham has a go at this that is worth the time:
US Meltdown Over TU-160s
“Two long-range Russian bombers landed in Venezuela this week and the United States immediately flew into a fit of rage. Top diplomat Mike Pompeo had a virtual mental meltdown on Twitter, denouncing Russia and the South American country for daring to cooperate in holding a military exercise.
The TU-160s flew nearly 10,000 kilometres from Russia to Venezuela on a scheduled non-stop flight in order to demonstrate Moscow’s support for the government of President Nicolas Maduro. The week before, Maduro was hosted in Moscow by President Vladimir Putin during which the two leaders discussed closer cooperation in economic and military affairs.”
Colombia went full on gay, as well:
Colombia Won’t Succumb to Venezuelan Provocations – MoD on Tu-160 Arrival
Part of the reason israeloamerica and colombia are upset is this:
Venezuela’s Maduro Accuses John Bolton of Plotting to Assassinate Him
“John Bolton leads the plan to unleash violence and conduct a coup to introduce a transitional government. Bolton is preparing a plan of my assassination. He is training, in various places, mercenary and paramilitary units’ forces jointly with Colombia, whose president Ivan Duque is an accomplice of this plan,” Maduro said at a press conference broadcast on his Facebook page.
Earlier in the month, Nicholas Madure has already stated that the United States is preparing to topple the Venezuelan government.
“An attempt to undermine Venezuela’s democratic life and to carry out a coup d’etat against the constitutional, democratic regime in our country has been launched under the coordination from the White House,” Maduro was quoted as saying by the AVN news agency on 9 December.
The president added that in the coming days, he would hold a press conference to provide details on the alleged plans of Washington to carry out a coup in Venezuela.
In early August, Maduro was attending a military parade in Caracas, when his speech was interrupted by what the Venezuelan authorities said was a failed assassination attempt involving explosive drones.
Maduro claimed in October that the United States had allegedly instructed Colombia to organize his assassination.”
Not mentioned here, but likely understood by zionazia’s gofers, and hence their hysterical queenly reactions, is this Russian flight symbolizes Russian support for Venezuela. It sends a message to israeloamerica that Venezuela wont be facing zionazia alone.
Maduro Says Visits by Foreign Military Aircraft to Continue Amid Tu-160 Arrival it
“The planes arrive and they will arrive in the coming months”, Maduro told a press conference that was broadcast on his Twitter page.
The arrival of Russia’s planes was in line with bilateral cooperation programmes, Maduro added.
The Venezuelan president also commented on the criticism over the visit of the Russian aircraft by Colombian President Ivan Duque, who suggested that the move was unfriendly. Maduro argued that “having mercenary camps inside a country, like those in Colombia, is unfriendly”.
The following articles contain videos of the aircraft operating in and around Venezuela:
Russian Tu-160 Strategic Bombers Take to the Skies Over the Caribbean (VIDEO)
“The Russian Defence Ministry has published footage from a recent flight performed by Russian Tu-160 (NATO codename Blackjack) strategic bombers currently stationed in Venezuela over the waters of the Caribbean Sea. The video shows not only a view of the sea, but also the interior of the plane’s cockpit.”
Watch Russian Tu-160s drill with Venezuelan jets from INSIDE strategic bomber’s cockpit (VIDEOS)
“One video shot inside the cockpit shows Tu-160 pilots in orange flight suits and combat helmets taking off from Maiquetia Airport and conducting their drills over the cloudy skies and clear blue waters of the Caribbean.
Other footage released by the MoD features the strategic bombers take-off under the cover of darkness and returning to base hours later in rays of sunlight, accompanied by Venezuelan fighters.”
Hopefully, Russia will install anti missile defenses in Venezuela and Cuba, to defend the United States from Canadian missiles, like the US was defending Russia from Iranian missiles with its anti missiles in Eastern Europe.
As a Canadian, that sounds like a possibly good idea to me. For some reason every decent Canadian development (i.e., the Avro Arrow) gets terminated by the Americans. Besides, Canada would get a better price for our oil by joining a cartel with Russia and Iran and selling it to China than by letting the Americans dictate that, too.
If Pompei were to meltdown, it would leave a very large and noticeable puddle. Heck, that alone might raise the global sea level by a centimeter or two.
That’s funny, although Pompei, being in the path of a volcanic eruption, is preserved in stone. You can see the results today, quite instructive as an historic snapshot.
Pompei as the plural though, i.e. many Pompeos melting down—- would leave quite a puddle. :)
According to TASS of today these Russian bombers will return to Russia. They did only do some exercise flights as I understood it.
I read at TASS that the plan is to rotate TU’s through V (probably the island strip) on a regular basis henceforth…that a set of these machines with be either about to arrive or about to leave, or sojourning, from now.
TASSS may not wish to emphasize this intent, but that is what I read yesterday 12/15/18 at TASS
My own opinion is that said airstrips will in the fullness of time be visited by surface ships of RU. No doubt they’ll dump their weapons and carry candy…
I expect that we shall also see a submarine surface from time to time, also causing unplanned micturation events…
I am often minded of the Great Nazi General Jack Ripper (once commander of Burpelson AFB) who was heard to say “Two can play that game, Soldier!” as he extracted from his golf bag a belt-fed machine gun…
Well, yes, violence and threats are indeed a multi-party game. Obedience to Equitable International Law, on the other hand…is a better game, no?
Should someone tell Pompeo that “liberty” and “freedom” mean the same thing?
this seems like much ado about nothing, unless
Was Pompeo perhaps scared of what was in that AN24 transport plane, but just couldn’t come out and say it?
Was it revealed, what was in that transport plane? After all, a few modern/ized Russian weapons can go a long way in dealing with mercenaries.
”The Russian and Venezuelan people should see this for what it is: two corrupt governments, squandering public funds and squelching liberty and freedom while their people suffer.”
Pompeo, honey — you sound as if the Russian and Venezuelan people have let you down somewhat: ”/…/ should see this for what it is”. Sure, you’re Exceptional and Indispensable for all the world to see but it might prove helpful to ask Russians and Venezuelans what their views are. Has that ever crossed your sweet little mind, perchance?
The Americans are watching crap on TV, as are most of us British.
However, I got so annoyed with this headline photo in today’s UK Daily Telegraph, I wrote this, knowing it is true, though I do not personally know the people involved, except maybe some of the RAF pilots, who we accidentally bumped into on a country walk a few years ago, whilst they were holding a “hidden” wedding. They invited us in. My wife and I politely declined, though I did take some photographs. Great view.
I wrote the following off the top of my head from her point of view
“Husband is doing well – really good job. The kids are happy playing with their friends in the village street. It is getting rather cold, and may snow.
Then, mobile phone stops working.
Electricity stops working – lights go out.
There’s no gas.
Turn on the tap, glug, glug, then nothing more.
Can hear explosions in the distance.
Call kids in quick.
Husband arrives back in a panic. He grabs his powerful binoculars and looks up into the sky.
He says – that’s an RAF Tornado.”
Just a day in the life of an ordinary Syrian Family.
I’m ashamed and in tears, and I bear witness against these evil British people.
I love that the main proponents of the $5 billion dollar boondoggle known as Trump’s Wall To Stop Freedom complain about other countries “squandering public funds”.
traditionally, americans are cowards – can’t we find a way to rid of us this tyranny
Venezuela is behind in their loan payments to Russia… for some reason, China has been getting paid instalments but not Russia much to Russia’s chagrin… I would not be surprised to learn this gives Russia leverage to resume military excursions into Venezuela in lieu of $ – maybe even to the point Russia could open a military base there one day soon. Tit for tat in regards to the NATO bases on Russia’s border.
I read that the us military is now in the spam business, which has diluted the spam quality somewhat…
”I would not be surprised to learn this gives Russia leverage to resume military excursions into Venezuela in lieu of $ – maybe even to the point Russia could open a military base there one day soon.”
As usual, Western ’perspicacity’ is awesome. A somewhat less contrived explanation which resonates with me is that Russia’s ”leverage” comes from the Yankee Reich and its Colombian satrap openly menacing Venezuela. On this basis, a few Russian/Chinese military compounds in the Western Hemisphere would be a huge step in the right direction. Pompeo’s hissy fits prove the point superbly.
I have absolutely no problem with most of our English, Scottish, Welsh, and Northern Irish Politicicnas (including my own English MP) being members of..the following organisations
What could possibly go wrong with almost all British politicians making friends with foreign people from another country???
You are supposed to infiltrate them, and change their minds…
You are not supposed to be controlled by them, by their Money, Blackmail, Threats, and Satanic Genocidal Death Threats. That is even worse than making Friends with Americans (some of who’m seem relatively sane)
You are supposed to take them on, and change their minds – not agree with them – you useless morons.
I’m sorry, but you have all got to go. You are Rubbish.
You are not representing us British People, and now none of you are making any sense.
You are not doing too well.
Even the French and Germans don’t like you, and neither do us British.
Must try harder or simply Resign.
Courage and moral courage are not the forte of exceptional sociopaths and exceptional narcissists.
The American elite are so hopeless, they might as well go turtle and take their Russian shit-kicking like a man instead of like a neo-sissy.
If you watch some of these videos and relate it to American rhetoric you’ll realise just how narcissistic the American elite are.
US Fleet to Fail in Battle Against Russian, Chinese Navy, US Think Tank Says
“The authors of the report, while giving assessments of possible future threats, examine the US military strategy and the country’s capabilities, warning that if current US naval and marine defence strategies were not transformed, the US fleet wouldn’t be able to gain the upper hand in a battle with either Chinese or Russian military vessels.
The report recommends modernizing American Carrier Air Wings (CVWs), which are lacking “the range, endurance, survivability, and specialization to carry out the operational concepts needed to defeat great power militaries”.
The authors note that missile defence systems, “including directed energy weapons and short-range interceptors”, which are being pursued by the Department of Defense, will not be sufficient in the case of potential Chinese and Russian missile launches.”
Rather brutally honest, for an american self-assessment, but then we find out why:
“Suggesting different naval force compositions, the researchers admit that their alternative plan “will be more expensive” than the one which currently exists, however, in order to preserve the relevance of the US fleet — it would be necessary.”
It’s one of those mic adverts
for more pork barrelling and zpc/nwo stealth promotions of their domination of the world strategy.
The Chinese and Russians are doing just fine on budgets way way less than israel’s pindo colony spends. But then they are not budgeting their military to rule the world, either.
The Americuns are soiling themselves because Russia is giving them a deserved taste of their own medicine….
The deployment of a pair of Russian Tu-160 Supersonic nuclear capable heavy bombers to Venezuela has been met with much apprehension and harsh rebuke in the United States – and represents an unprecedented move by Moscow to strengthen its position in Latin America and undermine the American position in its traditional sphere of influence. Moscow’s decision to deploy the aircraft, which could potentially become part of a permanent stationing of Russian assets there, is largely perceived to be a response to the Western Bloc’s growing military presence in Russia’s own sphere of influence and the expansion of the NATO military alliance into the Warsaw Pact and former Soviet Union. Western military interventions against Syria, Libya and a number of other longstanding Russian partners to install Western friendly governments has further led to a perception in Moscow that both the country’s global influence and its security interests are seriously threatened by Western actions. Deployment of the Tu-160 represents a Russian effort to take to the offensive and retaliate against the United States in its own sphere of influence.
Russian Nuclear Weapons in Venezuela; Outflanking U.S. Air Defences and the Full Implications of Tu-160 Bombers in Caracas
I understand that the idea is to do things that will “get through” to the minds that control the US State…
One means is to establish TU’s on a rotational basis in “The Americas”…
Thus this excerpt:
“…According to military envoys, Russian authorities have made a decision (and Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro did not object) to deploy strategic aircraft to one of Venezuela’s islands in the Caribbean Sea, which has a naval base and a military airfield. Ten years ago, Russian experts and Armed Forces commanders had already visited the island of La Orchila, located 200 kilometers northeast of Caracas. Venezuelan laws prohibit the setup of military bases in the country, but a temporary deployment of warplanes is possible.
“It is the right idea to include Venezuela in long-range aviation missions,” military expert Colonel Shamil Gareyev told the newspaper, adding that it was also economically reasonable. “Our strategic bombers will not only not have to return to Russia every time, but also won’t perform aerial refueling while on a patrol mission in the Americas. Our Tu-160 aircraft arrive to their base in Venezuela, conduct flights, execute their missions and are then replaced on a rotating basis. This is how it should be done,” he said…”

My favorite of these videos.
Imagine the pindo water sports when Russia sends Venezuela some S-300s or S-400s. :-D
If the TU and etc are to make regular use of airstrips in “The Americas” then naturally missile defense, elint facilities, and radars will of course be established to defend the airstrips and the machines, fuel tanks, bowsers, and all that stuff.
Is known as “FOB” in my time with, not in, the Imperial Army… (Forward operating bases)l
Russia is taking the necessary approach, if the world is off-limits to America’s provocations , then there should be no limits to the rest of the world. Proliferation of defense must be a collective for Russia China Africa South&Central America. China should consider it’s approach with especially Muslims countries and it’s Muslims at home, we all need each other to keep in check even roll back the 5Eyes Reich. Evidently the 5Eyes is A Nation grounded in the aspirations of its’ historical past more so than NATO.They’re the real threat to the World, 5Eyes is THE Empire.
