Two main trends this week: very rapid rise of a badly bruised European Left back to robust health; and a sprint of non-Western countries away from the West.
A dash to get away and decouple from the West is gaining momentum. More nations are joining in and those who can’t, watch with a certain degree of envy. Today, Russia’s city of Ufa is hosting the seventh annual BRICS summit [Source]
and simultaneously hosting the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) meeting: [Source]
The SCO comprises China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. India, Pakistan, Iran, Mongolia and Afghanistan have observer status in the organization, while Turkey, Sri Lanka and Belarus are dialogue partners. BRICS member states: Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.
Everybody and their cat knows by now how desperately the EU and NATO countries want to sustain their unsustainable Hollywood-Potemkin village lifestyle that they paraded in front of poorer nations, calling them losers and lazy, while robbing them blind. It’s becoming a common realization that for the West to live well it has to consume other nations, to take their treasures out and put its toxic debt and waste in.
Nothing new, you say, it’s been like this since devil was a baby. True. But the decoupling from the West has never been that united, organized, funded and technologically and ideologically advanced. We didn’t have a good internet connection back then.
“In London the US-funded Legatum Institute skipped the (Greek) poll evidence and panel discussions, attacking Venezuela, China, Syria and Russia instead for using “phenomena previously associated with democracy—elections, the Internet, the press, the market—to undermine freedoms”, along with “the self-organising potential of society.” Legatum left Anne Applebaum by herself to announce the Greek government can be overthrown because it was “elected on a completely false premise”.
Somehow, we do better fighting for our countries with the West militarily, like in the first Anglo-Afghan war, than to ward off their financial trickery. The financial trickery, which by all accounts is drying up. “Is Neo-liberalism Finally Running Out of Tricks?”
Other than the EU elite and a handful of bankers and globalists, who doesn’t see a silver lining in the collapse of the EU? We also see unbelievable scenes as refugees try to raid a food truck. No, this is not Baltimore or Minneapolis …This is Europe
While people try to get out of the EU theater of cruelty, one weirdo is fighting its way in…

“Which is good since they’ll be killing Russkies explains The New York Times. Should western taxpayers support the effort to force Donbass residents back under a Kiev government which unleashed against them neo-Nazis AND Jihadis?”
The US and EU see that the Ukro-Nazis are not capable to fight the Civil War in Ukraine, they are bringing ISIS troops, which are the irregular troops of NATO.
They are bringing Islamic troops in Ukraine, while under Minsk II agreement
Comment: “Some people refer to radical Islamists as Islamo-Nazis. It appears that the long suffering people of Ukraine are now suffering from the merger of the 2 evils of radical Islam and Nazism. I recently read the book “The Hitler Legacy” by Peter Levenda who described how the Nazis and radical Islamists formed an alliance in the 1930s and 1940s. In the Cold War this strategy was inherited by the United States and used by American officials like /secretary of State John Dulles and his CIA brother Allen Dulles. Now this strategy is being revived in Ukraine and used to advance America’s geopolitical goals. Islam has been weaponized and used as a political tool.”

If you remember back in 2014 after putsch in Kiev, the Ukraine’s Rada immediately adopted two deeds: ban on the Russian language use, and a status of non-citizens for the entire Russian speaking population. That was what caused the uprising of the Eastern Ukrainian population.

4. New Cyber Berkut revelations: Ukraine MinStets opposes freedom of speech [Source]
“We, CyberBerkut, continue publishing documents obtained from the computer networks of the Ukrainian Ministry of Information Policy.
Once again we can see that the activity of this Ministry is aimed at the injunction of freedom of speech. Ministry Yuri Stets with his agitators try to conceal the truth from the citizens and the international community, cheat them and justify crimes of Kiev’s regime. Their main enemy is every journalist who tries to understand the situation and show it from all sides.
That’s why the best way to fight these enemies is to forbid the access way to the country or deprive accreditation and deport from the country.
Today we publish documents which clearly show what the MIPU thinks about freedom of speech.
Here we can see some directions for Ukrainian servicemen obtained from one of the MinStets’ hard disks. It has several actions of how to find journalists who are interested in “antiukrainian information activity”. The document impresses by its detailed description. It’s ridiculous but if you have a laptop, a memory card, a camera or other “gadgets” your entry into Ukraine may be simply denied. ?
And remember! It’s not only about Russian journalists, but also about journalists from other countries.
Besides, we have the list of mass media agencies’ employees made by SBU, who cannot have the accreditation. Deputy Minister of Information Policy Tatyana Popova in her e-letter said that “the list is not for mass media” and “its publishing is forbidden”. And it’s clear. The list is abundant and it looks strange even for agitators from the MIPU. Tatyana Popova admits that “SBU overdid a little” for you can see some Russian liberal agencies such as “Kommersant”, “Vedomosti”, and some western media giants “BBC” Russian service and “Voice of America”.
How come they haven’t pleased Kiev?”
“Along with that, the Ministry of Information Policy of Ukraine supports pseudo-news media, which are watched by Ukrainian intelligence agencies.
For example, project “InformNapalm” holds oneself as “volunteer”. But according to Tatyana’s e-message to Artem Bidenko, this is a project of “some people from the Ukrainian Defence Ministry, whose cover can’t be blown”.
“We, CyberBerkut, announce that Ukraine is still far removed from ideals of freedom and democracy. Current Kiev officials afraid of journalists, and seek ways to stop their activity. It’s confirmed by the documents of the MIPU. Ukrainian regime manipulates public opinion, brainwashes citizens and forbides them to obtain the information from other sources. Any “wrong views” are subject to persecution and the ban.
We are CyberBerkut! We will not forget! We will not forgive!”

Will the new Axis – the Americans and the Germans – attack again, as the Germans did after the first Greek Οχι of October 28, 1940?
The line for Operation Nemesis has been that Greece must be saved, not from itself or from its creditors, but from the enemy in Moscow.
“On Sunday, had Greek voters divided evenly down the old Civil War lines, right versus left, blue versus red, the security forces would have been mobilized to confront demonstrators on Maidan, er Syntagma Square, and sharpshooters deployed from the roof of the Grande Bretagne Hotel to kick off Operation Nemesis. ”
“A putsch in Athens to save allied Greece from enemy Russia is in preparation by the US and Germany, with backing from the non-taxpayers of Greece – the Greek oligarchs, Anglo-Greek shipowners, and the Greek Church. At the highest and lowest level of Greek government, and from Thessaloniki to Milvorni, all Greeks understand what is happening. Yesterday they voted overwhelmingly to resist. According to a high political figure in Athens, a 40-year veteran, “what is actually happening is a slow process of regime change.”

Inevitably, there will be many angry people, because what is about to come to Europe will be hardship unlike anything seen in generations. Our suggestion: before neighbor takes it out on neighbor, study the following map closely because just like Libor was an impossible conspiracy theory until it was a proven fact, what is happening in Europe was propagated and effectuated by one bank more than any other.

July 8 – “This 2015 National Military Strategy addresses the need to counter revisionist states that are challenging international norms as well as violent extremist organizations (VEOs) that are undermining trans-regional security. We are working with allies and partners to deter, deny, and — when necessary — defeat potential state adversaries… Central to these efforts is strengthening our global network of allies and partners,” the doctrine states.”
“the United States is currently forming dubious anti-BRICS alliances in the Asia-Pacific and in Europe.”
“the term “revisionist regime” in fact means “any government that is not an ‘ally.'”
“For the past decade, our military campaigns primarily have consisted of operations against violent extremist networks. But today, and into the foreseeable future, we must pay greater attention to challenges posed by state actors,” the document reads.
