The US power structure: Pay Up or Die
The Western media steadfastly refers to Russia as having a “vertical power structure.” One of those make belief statements that is design to make people feel somewhat uncomfortable in regards to Russia. I imagine the power structure in Russia being more like a tree, with roots, branches, and leaves.
I did some research to find how the Western experts see the Western power structure. Remarkably, I couldn’t find anything at all. Malcolm X said that there was a revolution against the US power structure. The guy from the World Bank claims that the Western power structure has collapsed. But, no one says what this structure looks like. Is it vertical, horizontal, pyramid-like, spiral?
I think it’s vital for non-Western countries to understand what the Western [US, EU] power structure is, in order to successfully confront it.
Those of you, our esteemed readers, who went to high school, might be familiar with the Periodic System of Elements. A hefty chart that shows nothing in nature is random. I had an epiphany in fifth grade, upon examining the periodic system, because it became the most important and undeniable proof of the existence of God. Because underneath it all there are no place for randomness and chaos, but only for logic and structure. Needles to say I love charts.
Those of you who are familiar with the Periodic System, unless you graduated from a school in Russia, most likely have never heard about Dmitry Mendeleev, who formulated this system. It came to him in a dream.
Nothing useful has ever come to me in dreams, but recently I had a revelation of sorts.
It’s cliché for the Western media to describe the Russian state power structure as “vertical.” As with any cliché, this notion has never gets challenged or even questioned.
On the other hand, I could never find a geometric description of the American power structure for the notable exception of three government branches, which of course are not an actual power structure of American state. Far from it.
I was talking to someone looking to make a living in the arts, and I suggested to get any job paid or nonpaid with any arts-related nonprofit. “You have to get inside this bubble,” I said. “They circulate funds inside these bubbles and you have to be an insider to get a piece of the action.” And just like that I discovered the American power-structure.
The American power structure is like foam, it has frothy structure. It consists of a huge number of bubbles, big and small, that construct a self duplicating, multiplying division of bubbly structures. Every bubble has one objective which is to absorb as much money as it can. The bigger the bubble, the more sucking power it has, and the more money it absorbs. The largest known bubbles are the Federal Reserve bank, the US government budget, and the NATO budget. There are multiple bubbles of the think tanks, universities, media platforms, NGOs, and so on.
These bubbles are a semi-living organisms; they are able to multiply by division. The bubbles are sticky: they attach themselves to anything with value and they suck this value from the valuable subjects and into themselves. The bubbles are semi-intelligent: when the source of the money dries up, these bubbles are capable of detaching and moving on to greener pastures, without drying up and disappearing. The bubbles of the Western power are also corrosive and poisonous, they suck up value and destroy their subjects simultaneously, be it forests, industries, companies, nations, cultures, or whole countries and continents. They use their toxicity to corrode and destroy other power structures, other cultures, other financial systems. Toxicity takes the form of propaganda and disinformation to degrade, diminish and soften the subjects of their aggression and to render their defenses useless. Just like spiders that inject poison into their victims’ blood streams, causing massive collapse of the inner systems.
Froth develops from shaking, stirring up, and destabilizing. Just try to get bubbles in your own bathtub, and you will understand what I mean. When an American general says that “Russia is an existential threat to our existence,” he literally means the existence of the bubble that he is feeding upon. Russia wants to reduce the destabilization of the world, while the West needs further and further destabilization, to shake money down from this money tree (or bubble.)
How ‘Obscure’ US Bureaucrats Foment Wars” Given the US’s vast power even relatively minor and unknown officials can – and do – cause enormous damage, chaos and war.
Just read what these two creeps have to say:
“In the nuclear age, guarding the homeland from an unlimited counterstroke is about more than merely preventing invasion. Forestalling nuclear escalation means keeping the scope and duration of combat operations low enough—and thus unprovocative enough—that Beijing would not countenance using doomsday weapons to get its way. It is important, then, for Washington to limit its efforts through the type and amount of force deployed, staying below the nuclear threshold. American strategists’ goal should be to design operations that insert “disposal” forces….to support allies while making life difficult for China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA)” (Asymmetric Warfare, American Style, Toshi Yoshihara and James R. Holmes, US Naval Institute)
Is allocation of Developed vs Developing permanent?
Over the years I could never find a clear rational answer of why some countries are named “developed” countries, and why all other countries on earth including China (the biggest economy in the world) and Russia ( the biggest country in the world) are called “developing.” Why is this allocation permanent? Why no new members have been assigned to the “developed countries” club?
This chart visualizing the world’s “hot” money is an answer
The cumulative amount of this “hot money” coming out of developing countries totaled just over $7.8 trillion between 2004 and 2013. On an annual basis, it breached the $1 trillion mark each of the last three years of data available, which is good for a growth rate of 6.5% rate annually.
The developed countries are permanent recipients of the “hot” capital coming from developing countries.
The developing countries are permanent donors of the capital.
Essentially, the developing countries are called so because they are “developing” rich Western countries who just happened to be the NATO members. “Developed” country called “developed” because they are being “developed” by the developing countries. NATO is a military arm of the developed countries’ financial system that militarily intimidate and pressures non-members into paying ransom to “developed” countries.
In the zerohedge article the estimation of what non-NATO countries are paying to NATO countries at about 6.5% of the annual GDP. In the case of Russia, paying over $1 trillion to the West for over ten years, the country surrenders 6.5% of its GDP. It means that when the Western rating agencies estimate Russian economic growth being at 2%, it’s actually was at 8%; in 2015 they say Russian economic growth has been at -2%. When in reality it was about 4%.
The same can be said about the Latin American countries, African countries and China.
I consider this chart being one of the most important when it comes to the understanding of economic and military dynamics in the world. The other chart is the petrodollar chart.
Finance Ministry expects Russia’s capital outflow to be $60 bln at 2015 year-end
The bubbles of the Western power structure can be huge, like military and education complexes, and pension funds, or they can tiny like a troll sitting somewhere in a small Ukrainian town writing hate-Russia posts on Twitter and getting paid by one of those NGO bubbles, that in turn have attached themselves to a gas pipe going via Ukraine and taking a chunk of the cuts from reselling the Russian gas. If Russian gas will go via Nord Stream 2, this NGO bubbles will get depleted. Logically, they pay a little to many trolls to prevent Gasprom from redirecting the gas away from Ukraine.
The delightful account of the battles around the Russian gas and Russian money and Ukraine has been recently given by Mark Nesop, The Kremlin Stooge.
You simply cannot afford not to read it.
There are much bigger bubbles, controlling not just industries, but regions of the world, like the US military complex. They project their power via tremendous quantity of bubbles spread all over the world, like the bubble of NATO, the bubble of ISIS, and the various think tank bubbles, like the Brookings institute. The think tanks and the military complex are having a symbiotic relationships; they absorb funds coming to the military complex coming from other countries by softening their intended victims via nonstop war of disinformation.
For example, on December 4th, 2015, the Brookings institution Saban forum 2015
held a talk with Moshe Ya’alon, Israel’s minister of defense titled: Israel and the United States: yesterday, today, and tomorrow
Israeli DM Moshe Ya’alon complained that Obama has now yielded the Middle East to Putin: “Unfortunately, in the current situation, Russia is playing a more significant role than the United States. He says that “Russia has come down [to the ME] so strongly with Iran and Bashar al-Assad.”
Putin’s unexpected intervention in Syria “has created an emergency situation for us”: (1) he is saving Assad, and (2) weakening Daesh, thereby (3) making it impossible to break Syria up as planned; and worst of all (4) he has given Teheran the S-300 system, which will be “operational in a couple of weeks”.
Very bad news for Israel’s security, for Ya’alon insists, Iran is much more dangerous for us than Daesh. However, all is not lost yet, there is still a window of opportunity, but we must hurry and use it: the US must orchestrate “a pragmatic coalition with the Gulf states,” – a Sunni axis to counter this Russian-supported Shia axis.
That’s the opportunity to seize, Ya’alon says. But speed is of the essence, for allies flock to Putin: “We don’t like the fact that King Abdullah of Jordan is going to Moscow, the Egyptians are going to Moscow, the Saudis are going to Moscow. It should have been very different. And we believe the United States can’t sit on the fence.” (P. 9 of the transcript:)
If you went to the Saban forum site, you might have noticed in the upper corner Hilary giving a keynote speech. She is a bubble, who attached herself to the side of the much larger bubble which is the US Federal government. She and her husband also own a nonprofit political think tank that attaches itself to the government and budgets and military and companies, who like Cisco and Saudis, funnel money towards the Clintons’ organization.
Also, don’t forget that the Western money, dollar and euro, are the electronically issued bubbles.
To be able to extract resources from the “developing” countries without blame, the West developed a veneer of superiority over those lesser nations whose only reason for existence is to work and support the ‘exceptionals.”
How the myth of an American “exceptionalism” is perpetuated
One simple illustration: an article about Russia’s military aviation with an image of the Russian long range bomber TU-160.
In comments we find a remark of an American about the Russian bomber: “Nice knockoff of the B-1 Lancer.”
The fact is that the Tu-160 design was established 1972-3. Tu-160 is also significantly bigger than B-1, and has much better performances too. The B1 was established in 1973-4. It’s clear that the design of the American plain was stolen from the USSR, and not the other way around.
The Western ruling classes have always telegraphed their intentions…no matter how insane they might be.
Look up your history and you will see it’s been going on for centuries.
Brzezinski’s ideas are just recycled from Mackinder who recycled those from Napoleon.
We have always been at war with Eurasia.
Probably the best statistical graphic ever drawn, is this map by Charles Joseph Minard portrays the losses suffered by Napoleon’s army in the Russian campaign of 1812. Beginning at the Polish-Russian border, the thick band shows the size of the army at each position. The path of Napoleon’s retreat from Moscow in the bitterly cold winter is depicted by the dark lower band, which is tied to temperature and time scales.
Also, look at the death toll from diseases above the death toll from wounds in the Crimean War.
On 28 March 1854 Britain and France declared war on Russia, and for the next two years British, French, Sardinian, and Turkish troops had invaded Russia, and fought against Russians in Crimea. The loss of life in the war was colossal; of 1 650 000 soldiers who began the war (of all nations), 900,000 died.
An example of how history is being re-written in every single possible way in order to soften their target (Russia) on the way of transferring as much resources from Russia to the West as possible.
Look at the illustration for the article about the Crimean War of 1854-1855 when Russia was attacked by Turkey, and its allies England, Prussia, and Austria. The illustration made in blue and yellow, in the colors of Ukraine which is a new state that came to the existence in 1991. There was no Ukraine, neither as a part of Russian Empire, no as an independent state in 1854. However, on this illustration for the Crimean war, you don’t see Russia depicted anywhere. Instead, we see the word “Ukraine.”
Map of Crimea with locations of battles marked.
How can we trust even a word written in the articles on this website, if we have just found a clear attempt of history re-writing and re-coding?
Upon looking into the publisher of the Crimean war article, an NGO called Understanding Uncertainty, we discover that the organization, which is a small bubble, has been attached to a larger bubble, called the University of Cambridge.
Domain and the pseudo-historical overtures published here belong to the University of Cambridge , England, Coton. IP Address 22.214.171.124 – along with cambridgecoincidences.org egmo2012.org.uk maths.org
Aha, we say… The University of Cambridge, an institution of higher learning, is engaged in malicious, willful lies, disinformation and misinformation concerning the history and geography. Interesting…
The article in question has been submitted by an anonymous in ims25 on Tue, 07/10/2008.
• Science Team: The public view of uncertainty
Upon researching a bit more, we can find that the Science Team of the Understanding Uncertainty organization is a group receiving financial backing from the UK government and military, including grant for risk communication from Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council [gow.epsrc.ac.uk] The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is the UK’s main agency for funding research in engineering and the physical sciences. According to gov.uk – The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is the main UK government agency for funding research and training in engineering .
Understanding Uncertainty is an organization that exist inside the Cambridge University bubble, and is directly funded by the United Kingdom government.
Place this organization in Russia, and the West would say that “Understanding Uncertainty” is directly funded by the “Putin’s regime” and that’s why it cannot be taken into consideration at all.
You can see here how the large money sucking bubble, which is the Cambridge University creates smaller bubbles inside itself to multiply the dimensions of its “funds sucking” surfaces on the input. On the output, the general public gets injections of disinformation that is re-writing history, geography, and the image of the world in general. There is no sense at all to judge the quality of education, presented by the Cambridge University. The fact that this institution is teaching the generations of students junk science and invented facts, should be enough for any reasonable person to reject their “teachings.”
Considering that Davis Spiegelhalter is a “leading statistician” of the UK and Winton Professor of the Public Understanding of Risk in the Statistical Laboratory, I would like to ask him a question:
What is the statistical probability that the Crimean peninsula, which had been a part of Russia since the seventeenth century, is shown by his team in the middle of the nineteenth century as being a part of “Ukraine” a country that came into full existence in 1991? Considering that administrative authorities of Crimea were transferred from the Russian Soviet republic and granted to Ukraine Soviet Republic by a personal decision of the Communist party leader Khruchov in violation of the country’s laws in 1956 inside the same country of the USSR?
And, in concern to the “public risk” that he is so carefully studies: what are the risks for a professor of the Churchill College, Cambridge, to cook up and publish on college online property the blatant distortion of both geography and history simultaneously?
What the fate of Russian teenagers of the “Young Guards” at the hands of Germans in 1943 has to do with the Islamization of Europe in 2016?
Anniversary of the execution of the members of the “The Young Guards” in Donbass by German occupants and local collaborators. The German soldiers and local fascists ripped these children apart alive. The tortures that these children were subjected defines any description. Their alleged crimes? They spread leaflets with calls to resist the German occupation, and raised up a red banner over the town hall building. They also ambushed a so called “Labor Stock,” which was a prison with thousands of people trapped to be sent to Germany to death camps and labor camps. The fire distracted the soldiers surrounding the building, while the
Young Guards let people to escape. They were kids from the working class families. They all were good students in high schools, and some of them even had some time before the war to go to college. After being betrayed by the local Ukrainian nationalists and arrested, 49 members of “The Young Guards” and 22 members of the local chapter of the Communist party, were tortured and executed, some by hanging, others, by being pushed still alive down a frozen mine shaft and throwing heavy coal miners carts on the top of them. People had heard voices coming from the depth of this mine for several days. When people came to collect their bodies, the description of damages they sustained made volumes: all bones in their bodies were broken including their skulls, their eyes and nails ripped out, their teeth pulled put, their bodies were black from hematomas and bruising, some of them had their fingers, hands and feet cut.
This what a historian Andrey Vedyaev writes: “The Young Guard: Those who Defeated death.
“In those frosty days of January 1943 in Dobass snowy Lugansk region town Krasnodon a terrible tragedy had been unfolding: a swarm of German invaders and their accomplices from among the former “Russians” were ripping apart several arrested members of the underground Komsomol organization “The Young Guards,” many of whom had not turned 19 years old. The completely inadequate brutality shown by the soldiers of a “new order” is forcing us today to ponder the nature of Western “civilization,” which is based on the colonial structure of the world with the aim of uncontrolled access to its natural resources, division of people into masters and slaves, with all the ensuing the most subtle methods of suppressing the freedom and independence of the latter. That was in the time of Spartacus, during the Anglo-Boer war, the Nazi occupation – and so it continues in our time, when the bloody Kiev junta is trying to put on the knees resistance of Donbass.”
Today we witness the same unspeakable cruelty of children and grandchildren of the Europen NATO occupiers and their Ukrainian collaborators towards the people of Donbas. Nothing has changed. No one has changed. Only now, the Europeans can’t hide behind Hitler and cannot blame the Third Reich’s oppressive apparatus for making them act like monsters.. Back in the day, when the Red Army came to Berlin, Nazis disappeared, and everyone in Germany turned into a victim of fascism. And no shadow could even touch such shiny beacons of self imposed victimhood like Finland, and Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, all where Germany’s allies. For decades the Soviet Union was covering up and protecting the population from truth, for the peace and cooperation between nations. Not anymore. The third Reich is gone. The Soviet Union may rest in peace. Today, we see the Europeans as they are: pure monsters. There are no ideological covers, nothing they can come up to justify their behavior. It’s just pure animal visceral hate towards Russian people and desire to destroy and to take what the Russians have.
It gives us, the Russians, a clear understanding of what should we expect if the Europeans and Americans would ever have a chance to invade Russia again: tortured and ripped apart just like people in occupied by Ukraine and NATO Novorossia.
I found it farcical when the same people who with the European impunity acting in Donbass killing Russian children, and hanging Russian pregnant women, and pulling barbwire through kidnapped Russian men’s colons, at home stand haplessly and can’t “defend” their own women in their own highly fortified German cities from the crowds of “Arabs.”
I am not alone in this assessment. “The one thing they really seem to believe is that the rest of the human race must behave with perfect chivalry to the German people, whatever the German people might have done. Germans are free to level cities and massacre whole populations by gunfire, gas and hunger, but if Germany loses the victors must not entertain any question of reparation or collective punishment! Oh no, the German people must be spared any kind of suffering, their surviving soldiers must be allowed to go back to their undamaged homes and back to work in their undamaged factories, so that Germany stays pristine and prepared for her next savage onslaught against the peoples of the East.”
I have a very good idea who opened the refugee camps in Turkey and initiated the great migration of people to Europe and why. It was done initially, to facilitate fear and resentment amongst Europeans and to make them demand their politicians and the EU regime to interfere in Syria and put the end to Assad ASAP. In summer 2015 everything started so smoothly and organized and camera friendly. In seems that the plan was for NATO to attack Damask, to capture, torture and kill the legitimate Syrian government in the best Europen traditions, and to place the US person in Damask to supervise the division of the country, the spread of Caliphate, blah, blah, blah. And the last, but not least, to return the majority of the refugees back to Turkey. That’s why we have seen so many young single men. they got paid to go to Europe, to stay there for a little while and then to come back. Fun trip, all expenses paid. Looks like they also were promised as much sex as they could get, with impunity and with the Police indifference.
Then, of cause, Russia interfered and everything went horribly wrong.
I truly doubt that Merkel wants to destroy Germany, she is not Poroshenko, she is not being paid to do that. I think that she agreed to a very sleek deal like I described prior. Everything was so well calculated. Nothing could go wrong. besides, of course Russia, Iran, China and some others putting a kabash to such sweet party. A million of young angry Muslim men getting stuck in Europe, and being told by Saudis that Europeans have to obey them. Because, that’s what the deal with Saudis, wasn’t it? Oh, irony.
Anything to stop buying gas from evil Russia.
I completely disagree with the Andrew Korybko who named alleged actions of alleged migrants [new information is that some of the detained are Europeans, one is from Serbia, and one is American] from the Middle East in Europe as “Sexual terrorism.”
To me it looks like a good old United State’s PSYOP.
However, is it was indeed driven by the physiological need, then it wasn’t an act of terror, either.
Just like from the point of view of the Germans and other European nations who came to Russia in 1941, it was justifiable to torture and execute Russian teenagers, by the power invested in them by their governments; so, from the point of view of the Arabs, it’s justifiable to demand sex from the European women, by the power of their upbringing, religion and sheer virility.
From the point of view of the young angry Muslim men who had never in their lives had sex with real women, that it’s not terrorism, it’s entertainment. The European women should learn to like it. If they enjoy killing Russians in Ukraine, and Syrians in Syria, why can’t they learn to like sexual advancements of the young Arabs?
If Europeans and Americans stay away from the Middle East, Russia and its allies will gradually pacify the region as Russia has done for centuries, without much blood and atrocities, and China, Iran and India will start rebuilding the region. The migration pressure on Europe will be lifted. Angry young Muslim men will go home, and those who stay will mingle with the locals.
If, on the other hand, Europeans and Americans decide to stay and to “win” in the Middle East, help Turkey to destabilize Ukraine, and Azerbaijan, and Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. If Turkey and Azerbaijan attacks Armenia again, the US places Daesh in Iraq and Afghanistan, and support Saudis in attacking Iran? In this scenario, the frontline that European try to draw through the South of Russia, will be redrawn through Warsaw, Berlin, Paris and London with millions more angry young men coming to Europe in search of entertainment.
In any way, quoting someone’ comments in the Russian publication Zavtra for the material about the Germany’s suffering from refugees: “We have no tears for Europe. We cry out all our tears in May 2014, [when the EU’ junta burned people alive in Odessa and Mariupol, and bombed Donetsk, and Lugansk.] But we watch with a great interest how the Europeans deal with people whose homecountries they have destroyed. “
And, another quote: “We, Russians, don’t care who wins in Europe, European nationalists or Islamists, both are our enemies. We will wait until one side wins, and then we will deal with the winner.”
FYI: In 1944, the Great Britain and the U.S. agreed to divide Germany into several parts, to de-industrialize the country, and to reorient the population into agriculture. It called the “Morgenthau Plan.”
How the modern Germans understand the “Morgenthau Plan?” Forget about the US Chiefs of Staff and Eisenhower, who authorized the plan. In modern Germany they “know” that it was Soviets who did it.
Just like today they say that it’s Russia that bring Arabs to Europe. Just like Lucy Ash, releasing on BBC a 30 minutes video, right before the May 9th Victory celebration in Russia, claiming that German women en mass were “raped by the Soviet Soldiers.”
Needless to say that what Lucy Ash professes is a lie and disinformation.
For anyone who wants to know the truth, there is a book: When the Soldiers Came — the rape of German women at the end of the Second World War
“The book written by German Professor Miriam Gebhardt “When the soldiers came” has caused a shock in Europe. A German Professor has debunked the myth of the “atrocities” of the Red Army: the Germans were massively raped by the Anglo-Saxons.”
Ad also, “The study, based on the study of wartime archives not only in France but in the U.S., helped to identify the fact that violence and satisfaction of physiological needs were the main methods used by the American military to “establish their authority over the French”.”
Compare this to the following: The Directive of the Supreme command commander of troops and members of military councils of the 1st Belorussian and 1st Ukrainian Fronts about the change of attitude towards German prisoners and civilian population
“Officers and soldiers! We are going into the country of the enemy. Each must keep self-control. Everyone must be brave…the Remaining population in the conquered areas, regardless of whether German, Czech or Pole, should not be subjected to violence. The guilty will be punished according to the laws of wartime. On the conquered territory sexual relations with the females is prohibited. For violence and rape, the perpetrators will be shot.”
Lucy Ash has committed one of the biggest information terror acts in the modern history by claiming the “criminality” if Russia’s army. She has done so by using BBC, a Cameron’s regime funded and the British government owned information platform. Essentially, Lucy Ash is a transmitter for the UK government propaganda. Remember, I started describing the US and EU power structure as bubbles. BBC is a bubble that is tightly adjoined to the UK government budget bubble, and Lucy Ash is attached to the side of this enormous bubble with many others like her absorbing some of those funds. To receive funds, these people have to inject certain amount of poison into the atmosphere inside and around the bubbles to keep them inflated. If there is no poison, the bubbles will collapse. Just like they collapse and wither everywhere where people reject their activities, like in Russia or China.
Lucy Ash has committed one of the biggest information terror acts in the modern history. Has she been investigated, prosecuted, publicly whipped, and hopefully, hanged, for her spreading hatred towards the neighboring nation and abusing the exact people who suffered the most from the WWII? No, not yet. She happily lives in London with her husband; both are into “arts.”
What I am trying to say here is that what Arabs allegedly
do in Europe is a mild version of what Germans did in Russia and Americans did in Germany and France. Arabs are not worse than Europeans, and not any more barbaric than Europeans and Americans or anyone else. Get used to them, Europe. They are your future.

Correction: Kremlin Stooge is Mark Nesop.
Scott..when can we expect your book to be published? Wisdom of this calibre needs to be preserved for posterity.
Still sifting through your soap bubbles…great metaphor.
Thanks for your “rant”
I second that. I love your rants.
An interesting one with that bubbles theory which at first glance seems at odds with my understanding that the US administration and its various underling vassal administrations were more like a septic tank – one where only the big chunks rise to the top.
But on closer scrutiny, and in accordance with proven laws of physics, those dense chunks must contain within them bubbles of noxious but light gases in order that they might overcome gravity and actually rise to the top.
So yes, the bubbles theory is all too true.
(will comment more based on the points as soon as more time avail.)
@ Scott: Absolutely amazing to me.
This shows once again the difference between you (real SitREps) versus the others (so called ones).
I cannot read so fast.
But in advance: Your description of the power structures as bubbles is hitting the nail.
In what I experienced myself there in the US the power structures were in fact like that.
But with some additional structures who are SuperUser/God-like and can dictate instructions, like orders. Usually given by those who are providing the funds. In that sense again I wonder how these bubbles are semi-intelligent enough to attach to other money sources.
But a very good image nevertheless, in any case.
@Scott: Very interesting what you say about the so called 1st/2nd and 3rd world countries’ so called “development” status.
I read the ZH article myself back then.
More interestingly: Had it in Highschool as one of my self-chosen final exam topics (the other one I chose was the “treaty” of Versailles)
Yes, it is correct how you describe it in relation to the money changers.
One point we must add: The “developing” countries are blooding out not only financially, but also through braindrain! First these countries spend another few billions per year to educate their youth, then the best of them get picked out by external western bubbles and take all the knowledge they received for free only to immigrate to the damn west.
Therefore I don’t see the Russians who live here in Berlin as my friends.
Although they speak the language, I’m probably more of a real Russian than them …
“although i don’t speak the language,i’m probably more of a real russian than them…” jawohl comerade,let’s go back to the good old soviet union,don’t we ? maybe in gefangenschaft (prisonier of war)
I do speak the language.
But not natively and not that well.
But by quoting me with something I have never written you disqualified yourself.
Same “anonymous” from French-Canada?
What’s so difficult in picking some nickname?
p.s. Not as prisoner of war, but in case of war I join the Russian Army on the first day.
@Phil K Thanks for the correction. Fixed it.
Dear Babushka in Oz, Hopefully soon. Fred agreed to look at my manuscript.
SanctuaryOne: “those dense chunks must contain within them bubbles of noxious but light gases in order that they might overcome gravity and actually rise to the top.” Hahaha… Good one…
awesome jokes – had to put the crackers away :-)
Regarding your analysis, I am with you that most problems developing in Europe are self-inflicted. There were enough reasoned warnings by insiders and independent people, but most Europeans just prefer to stay in their own small bubbles undisturbed (also called cocooning) than to prevent these developments.
It is pleasing to see the support and aid given to migrants directly by locals here. It is all the more sad that these locals seemed incapable or unwilling to put different government policies in place, in particular years ago when it was time to avoid the crisis altogether.
It is as usual: the roof has to collapse before action is finally taken.
Almost all of it went right over my head… Guess it got lost in the translation..
“The bigger the bubble, the more sucking power it has, and the more money it absorbs”
Sounds like a black hole in space. Sucking people and money into the matrix.
hey man scott, blooming brilliant rant, hugely brilliant, you are the tops!!
at the beginning I thought, perfect piece to send to my (nearly ex) friend who called putin a megalomaniac today, but then I got to the parts about german women & I remembered, better not, his wife is an east berliner, too bad will have to find something more tame or just give up!! yeah, better just give up,
my husband on the other hand had tears running down his face, your humour section was sooo hilarious!
keep on digging up the dirt,
kindest regards, variya
Hi Scott, a disagreement: How do you believe versus how do you think does it prove the “existance of God”??
Nature *is* God.
For the bloody murderous religions with their murderous crusaders, inquisitions and fairy tales, my answer is once again:
The REAL Truth About Religion And Its Origins – MUST WATCH!! [High Quality]
ALL religion is egyptian sun worship scholars explain. part 1/2
How does the fact by itself that the entire universe is (or may be) structured like a sophisticated 100% regular puzzle “prove” the “existance of a man in the clouds”??
Maybe we are an experiment run by aliens and they are watching us like TV for entertainment.
Maybe Erich von Daeniken is correct.
There are odd contradictions and impossibilities in the known history of mankind.
Some technical perfections simply do not belong into certain ancient times, but they are there. Nobody can explain it. The so called science community is silencing and ridiculing such voices and findings.
And on a side note, sorry if it disappoints some: Christianity is little more than a jewish sect.
Invented by Jesus, who was a jew.
This to the Trotsky lovers who always hate the Soviet Union for her jewish beginnings.
(I won’t mention again who Bronstein was, namely also a jew).
” Christianity is little more than a jewish sect. Invented by Jesus, who was a jew.”
Jesus is a fictional character, and Christianity, as we know it, is a hoax, an invention by some of the ruling families of the Roman Empire, the Flavians and Pini to be more precise.
For reference, check out the works by Joseph Atwill. Plenty of material on youtube.
Joseph Atwill – Caesar’s Messiah:
Thank you, zweistein.
Very interesting. Aha. Didn’t know that.
Fits it even more: Pre-modern population control when no newspapers and no TV were invented yet.
The joke is in any case also: There is not one Christianity, but I don’t know how many interpretations of it. Latest joke: Split off of the ukrainian orthodox church (so called) off Moscow.
And everybody is claiming: Onnnnnnnnnnly our God is the really true reaaaaallll one.
If there is some God, he will _not_ enjoy all that circus.
Yet you achieved to be eligible for The One World Government,bravo !
Wrong: They want a one-religion world, rather than a ZeroPercentReligionRatePolicy.
Right: that God is Mammon
Oh sorry, was this meant as “you agree”?
No, read what I said: God is Nature, Nature is God! A wonderful magic heavenly Gift.
Religion is Mammon.
Now see the point?
p.s. how much I dislike anonymous postings.
Mammon is the god of money (put it simple).If there is a ‘heaven” as you say,there must be a Creator,If as you posted recently that maybe Däniken is right about the Aliens as Gods it’s OK and at some point I do agree with you.The question remains,still,who created them ? As for the russians,they are very mostly deep belivers.Reed Tostoi and the russian philosopher Nikolai Bergjaev.
fair enough, I can agree with that.
As for Tolstoi: Yes, I read “War and Peace”.
The religious stuff is ok for me as long as it doesn’t go fanatic. With my girl I also went to church a bit or we took holy water from a spring in the suburbs.
I myself have 2 Orthodox icons which my first Ukrainian then future wife gave me in 2008.
One at home, one always with me.
I’m also a huge admirer of Orthodox churche churches (the buildings).
While at the same time my ratio tells me that I “think” in Lenin.
Well, life is complex.
Nobody is a 100% homogenous entity (or at least: should not even try to)
Am I a German? A soviet-East-German? Am I a Russian? A Soviet?
Like everybody I may be all together. It is as if somebody grew up in a multilingual household. One can see it all from different perspectives, which contradict each another. This leads then to statements which others may not always like or understand.
I wish I had more time to write on the topic of Atwill and his (actually not his) thesis. I’ve been working through it for over a year and despite my concerns about Atwill’s possible role in the elite war on faith and spirituality — a context which must be emphasized at this point in history, I’ll admit it has great explanatory power, especially for those of us who are heavily influenced by the ‘judeo-naturalist’ world view. I know some will roll their eyes reading that phraseology but it ought to be said. Atwill is on a side and it is probably not yours or mine. That is my belief and my intuition — not much for the scientifically minded to go on, I know.
Atwill is a philisophical naturalist. His ‘scientific’ worldview is in perfect agreement with that proffered by oligarchy. He uses it to push critical aspects of ‘their’ agenda. This is why his books get published and promoted in so-called alternative media.
Far better and more subtle, plus philisophically sophisticated commentary on the topic of religious engineering has been made. Not everything began with the Flavians. They established a dialectic of belief which later developed into the constructed conflict between gentile and ‘jew,’ a clever reframing which guides our perceptions of warring social groups and classes and not for the benefit of the common man.
Atwill has a purpose or else he is the perfect dupe. His message sounds well prepared. Jan Irvin is similar in this regard. Both ‘find’ or are led to critical tidbits of info and then do limited hangouts on behalf of the ‘technocrats.’
Here’s one off the top of my head. Atwill never misses an opportunity to push for genetic testing of the oligarchy. You have to be pretty foolish and scientifically dogmatic not to understand that genetic testing, identification, sorting, shunning, etc. is an objective of the submerged elite and will never be applied to ‘them’ but only to us, by which I mean the proverbial 99%.
Far better minds should deal with this but I would be very careful not to get too excited about what the Flavian thesis represents. It drives a wedge between people of faith and those who see science as a valuable tool to discern aspects of our reality. Science and faith are not mutually exclusive and anyone who says so is playing a game.
Yeah, Atwill’s work is the least impressive of that done to explain where the Jesus myth came from. One thing is obvious from the evidence is that Paul, the creator of what we now know as Christianity, never mentioned a living “Jesus” (in some instances, this was added later). Paul seems to have witnessed the “Passion Plays”/Mystery performances of Julius Caesar’s funeral (good research has been done connecting Caesar’s life and death to the Jesus myth) and had vision-type experiences. Also Paul’s was the earliest authentic “Christian” writings; he was in conflict with the “Jerusalem ‘church'”, and trying to de-escalate the rebel zealots from bringing about the destruction of Jerusalem….
His attempts to influence the relations of “Jews and gentiles” eventually failed to avoid the disaster of the Roman reaction to the extremist rebels brought upon Jerusalem, but was successful in spreading the core of what became Christianity.
This would be a new topic,maybe one day,the Saker will post something about Russian Orthodoxy and there we can comment more profoundly about religion and God.
Good question,but after 70 years of brainwash and occupation I can hardly see somebody in Germany and in west in general who belived in God.Anyway,to answer this question takes too long and has no sense,as the world learns nothing from her past.
“The REAL Truth About Religion And Its Origins – Must Watch! [High Quality]
Great! IIRC that’s part of Peter Joseph’s first Zeitgeist Movie. Have you watched all Zeitgeist documentaries?
Thanks to Scott for this fine rant and thanks to (mostly) all for the comments.
Best regards from Aquitaine,
I so agree with you on Christianity. Associating it with Judaism or jews is just what computer people call FUD. It’s been used Judaic people for centuries as a mean to brainwash all Christians.
Interesting read, but 2 distorted views IMO:
– Greece a German ally? They had illegitimate puppet government, that even Germans didn’t trust and had no support among people. It is same as saying that Russia was German ally because of Vlasov / Kaminsky.
– Did Finland attack SU or did SU attack Finland in illegal way in 1939?
Not only that,but at 1 september 1939,the german army attacked poland,two days later france and england declared war to germany…the russian army attacked poland two weeks later…and got no declaration of war whatsoever…mistery
I think you must mean “the Soviet army”,as Russia as an independent state didn’t exist at that time. Something conveniently “forgotten” by Poles and Western states. But still,unlike the Germans who invaded mostly ethnic Polish territories, for conquest reasons. The Soviets reclaimed ethnic “Rus” territory. That was vastly Belorussian,Ukrainian,and Russian ethnic lands. That Poland herself had taken centuries before from “Rus”. And then after losing them to the Russian Tsars,took them again by conquest after WWI. And then spent all the interwar years oppressing the “Rus” peoples in those areas.
Excuse me,yes,soviet union but that does not change the facts.I’m not gonna go into polemics on who had owned first some lands because we could go back in time till the roman empire and the goths or to the mongol empire.The treaty of versailles was a bad example of this kind of polemics and ended badly
I agree fully with Uncle Bob
Ever heard of Polish-Soviet War (1919-1921) ???
Poles under fascist rule stood even in Kiev, the mother of all Russian cities.
If you want _FULL_ coverage, why do you also only pick what fits into your agenda??
p.s. Lithuania-Poland was an evil Empire that invaded country after country for as long as it could.
But you probably bought these “we are the eternal victim of Russia” bs.
And no, we don’t need to go back to the Roman Empire as you try to distract from historic facts and evidence.
The RUS people have centuries long been forced to quit the Orthodox church and to abandon their lifestyle. They finally had enough in the 18 hundreds after Napoleon and wanted back to Russia. Go google.
I am not sure if we can call that Polish-Soviet war, more like Polish-vs-Lenin-bolsheviks. Was the USSR established by then? I am not sure i think it was in 1922.
Besides for Poles it will always be against Russians no matter what.
You are right on Greece. I think maybe Scott meant Croatia and accidentally typed in Greece (Croatia did ally with the nazis,while Greece didn’t.)
But on Finland,there were two separate Soviet-Finnish wars. In 1939 after the Soviets offered Finland a treaty to solve their border disputes with an exchange of territories. Finland said no,and the Soviets when to war against Finland. After a very costly war the Finns asked for peace and the war ended. When they were informed by Hitler that the nazis were going to invade the USSR. Finland cooperated with the Germans and invaded the USSR at the same time. And allowed the Germans to operate on Finnish territory for their part of the invasion.When the Soviets were seen as winning the war. Finland again asked for peace,to prevent a Soviet invasion. The Soviets agreed not to invade. But forced the Finns to themselves expel the German forces operating in Finland.Finland ended by losing the territories the war started over. But without gaining the territories the Soviets first offered them. So all in all,despite everything, Finland ended with less than they would have gained from the original Soviet offer in 1939.
Yes, your conclusion about “if Finland accepted Stalin’s offer, it would be better for them” is true, still doesnt make it right. It was not just about “swaping”, it was about ceding (some strategic) territory to SU and SU’s military bases on Finland’s soil as well. Also in 1939 Finland made a counter offer about swapping/ceding territories and SU said no. Instead of continuing negotiations, SU invaded Finland, wanted to “liberate” Helsinki and install puppet government. It exiled 400k+ Karelians ie ethnical cleansing. In 1941, Finland didnot start the war with SU no caps. Its shouting. Mod TR. SU started the war against Finland again, bombing civilian targets…
First of all, history books show that it was the Finns that moved out the Karelians from their land,not the Soviets.The peace treaty didn’t require that. And second of all,I haven’t heard of any “counter-offer”. The Finns plotted an offensive in coordination with the German invasion. And on June 9th (13 days before the nazi attack on the USSR) the Finns mobilized their armed forces for their attack. As well as letting the German armies cross Finnish territory. And German military aircraft refuel at Finnish airfields. Which is what brought on the Soviet air attack on those airfields. It is common knowledge to all historians (including Finnish historians) that Finland plotted that war with the Germans.
I believe you are wrong. Soviets did demand resetlement/expulsion of Finn population from Karelia. Finland had knowledge of German invasion on SU, but didnt attack SU first. SU did not really attack airfields where German airplanes were refueling, but rather engaded in indiscriminate bombing of areas where there were no Germans … Finland did prepare a strategy or scenario, but again you forget, SU has just stolen land from Finland. Finland just wanted it back …
Thanks, Uncle Bob
Will use your comment for my Karelia SITREP
Thanks Scott. Karelia is actually a little known (in the West) but beautiful region.With a fascinating history. The people there were of “Finnic” background mostly. But for many centuries had been a part of Russia (Rus). Except for the descendants of more recent arrivals from “Finland” they had been Orthodox since first brought to Christianity (most Western Finns are Lutheran Protestants). Those Eastern areas had almost always been connected to Russia and to Orthodoxy (which made them even closer to Russia). The Western areas of today’s Finland had been ruled as a part of Sweden and had become Protestant when Sweden did.
The Russian Tsars weren’t very interested in the ethnic origins of their subjects until the late 19th Century (which is why there are so many small ethnic groups and languages in the RF today). While most of Europe in the 18th and the 19th Century worked hard on enforcing a “state ethnicity” and language throughout Western Europe. At the time of the French Revolution as an example, it was said 75 km’s outside Paris people couldn’t understand standard “French”. The Russians never really were more than half-hearted in enforcing the use of Russian even in the late 19th Century. If you were loyal to the Tsar that’s all they really cared about.
So when the Russian Empire gained the Western Finnish lands from Sweden during the Napoleonic Wars (Sweden having sided with France at that time) they allowed the Karelian lands to be combined in one “Grand Duchy of Finland”.As long as that Duchy was a part of the Empire it didn’t matter. And they thought having an Orthodox population with Russian loyalty attached would be a way to keep the “whole” loyal.
The Western Finns, under the Swede’s had been very attached to Sweden. With many thousands of Swedes and assimilated to Swedish, Finns there. The two groups were at least 15-20% of the population in the West Finnish areas. Like most of Europe,Finland saw a rise of nationalism in the 19th Century. Which proclaimed language as determining “nationality” in Europe. Since most of the upper and middle classes in West Finland spoke Swedish (and many of the common people had mixed dialects),the Finnish nationalists started to look East to Karelia for their “ideal” of a “real” Finn. True they were mostly Orthodox in religion. But to the “nationalists”,at least, they spoke dialects not influenced by Swedish (an ironic side-note is that many of the most determined “Finnish nationalists” of the period came from Swedish family backgrounds. And changed their names from Swedish ones to more “Finnish” ones.)
When Finland broke away from Russia at the time of the revolution. There was a savage “White Terror” in those regions. And civil war between Finnish Whites and Reds. That White terror helped give the Whites the win. And Finland carried Karelia with it as a part of “Finland”. Even though the ties with Russia among many people there was very strong. And as I said many centuries old. This should fill in a bit of background over the Karelia issue. It is certainly not a black and white issue as many in the West want people to believe. The area has been a part of the “Russian World” much longer (by centuries) than it was a part of a “Finnish state” of any kind.
Thank you Uncle Bob, did not know this about Karelia.
Uncle Bob 1,
Nice cap of Finnish history. The Swedish speaking population are still a thawn in the side of Finland as a whole LOL. A joke in Finland is that to exchange with Russia, Åland for Vyborg but some how I doubt the Russians would want such a deal.
In many parts of Finland until the 70’s, Swedish was the administrative and commercial language but that has since changed to Finnish. There is a good bond between Karelians and Finns with Finnish being spoken by a few in Karelia and much inter business relations between the two, EU sanctions aside. Karelia is a beautiful place with gorgeous nature.
Scott, I am not sure where you herald from but, although the humour sections and your bubble theory of Western existence is illuminating, do not get so upset by Western Mainstream Media especially the BBC (also known as the Brittish Bullshit Corporation). To lump Western populations in with what the sold out Political and Media heads (I will not call them elite as they are far from it especially from a human perspective), does nothing but play into the hands of the Divide and Conquer game that they play upon the masses.
Most Main Stream Media is loosing peoples attention and trust and alt media is filling the void, this site being one of them. To lump any group of people in with the actions of the few controlling psychopaths, does no justice to building a world in which we can over come such evil people. Word is getting through to people and a wake up is occurring. The best thing is for us all together try to find ways to better the situation and bring power back into the hands of the masses not the few.
Also, with a former sit rep of yours you made mention of the poor quality of Ukrainian food stuffs leading to the conclusion that is was unfit produce for human consumption. I would have to challenge that and counter from my personal experience in Kiev saying that the produce I bought and consumed from their super markets was of high quality. Had an interesting conversation or two with shop assistants with finding a Crimean Red Wine but they at the time, had a good selection of food stuffs and their dairy products are some of the best I have sampled on my travels through Asia Pacific and Europe. This was last Christmas and yes, although there are a few rotten eggs in Kiev, especially in the Rada, most people on the street and shops and markets were like no other. Think of how Russia was under Yeltsin where by most people were keeping their heads down and just trying to get by, I seem to believe this is the current situation with Ukraine today.
No one has stepped up except in the East, to deal with the situation which the country suffers and Ukraine also has the Toxic Western Region to deal with. I suppose the equivalent for Russia would have been Chechnya and I wonder if it will take a similar response to deal with the Ukraine’s problem???
On a global level, the move away from the Petro Dollar is the best thing that can happen and hopefully without the radioactive afterglow that could be the result. On the topic of refugees in Europe, many are seem to be economic opportunists who have been lied to about the situation in the EU. Interesting enough how many of the Twitter accounts espousing how great the EU was for migration seemed to originate from 3 of the 5 Eyes countries
This coupled with the attacks on EU economically via the Volkswagen Pollution Scandal and compliance by EU countries in sanctions against the RF at the behest of the USA which itself doesn’t sanction. I think a pattern can be discerned and it is for Washington and Wall Street to destroy the world to own it. The cost of Empire. No one should be Empire.
Anyway, united we stand and divided we fall. This is what I wanted to impart to you Scott, this is not just a problem for Russians, it is a global humanity problem and as such, humanity globally needs to come together and solve it. Playing into divides does nothing but make it easier for the current Psychopaths to continue in their plans.
got it, thanks, Uncle Bob
I believe I was quoting the Russia agency Rospotrebnadzor
The quality of Ukrainian food on the Russian market was becoming dangerously low during Maidan and on. Even finely-ground glass was found in some batches of cheese and butter. So, if you like Ukrainian food, you’re welcome to eat it. We would rather eat our own produce and milk products.
All around, good riddance.
“Anyway, united we stand and divided we fall. This is what I wanted to impart to you Scott, this is not just a problem for Russians, it is a global humanity problem and as such, humanity globally needs to come together and solve it.”
Yeah… I have been like you two years ago. If tomorrow, Ukraine and the EU, both come to us with their arms open for a hug, they will get a very cold shoulder. At some point, even we, Russians, just run out of love and patience. However, we are getting closer with Syrians, and Chinese, and Indians. India, China and Indonesia are the main destinations for the Russian tourists now. In pre-maidan past it was Europe, Egypt and Turkey. So, don’t worry. We are getting together with humanity and solving our problems.
Oh Pleeeease. Why not just say Finland is not really a country and should just get under Russia again No baiting. Back up your arguments with facts please.Mod TR …
I would like to add something, not quite along the subject but something about Karelia.
My Polish friend, number of years ago, passed me a polish book on Karelia called in polish “Zapomniany Rewir” a wonderful book regarding the place. Excellent read. Unfortunately it’s not published anymore as it was from the days of SU friendly days in PRL (Polish people’s Republic”.
UB1 you are correct again.
I agree. Greece was never a German ally. Ask people who belonged to ELAS (Greek freedom Front).
It was Croats (part of Yugoslavian Kingdom), Bulgaria and Romania and of course Bandera Army in Soviet Ukraine there was also an “russian” army of Vlasov. If I missed someone my apologies.
As far as Soviet Union was concerned Finland attacked SU.
Scott’s rant should be essential reading for those wanting to understand the suckopus..
What made me realize something was wrong was when I was studying science and technology and I saw something wrong, I asked the teacher and he said it was done on purpose so when the communists steal the text books and teach their students, they would not be able to develop the technology… Then I started studying history and some native Americans told me that’s not the way the history went down according to their own stories.. But I assumed it was incorrectly passed on.. UNTIL the bomber crew that killed over 45 civilians in a Baghdad restaurant all got medals for bravery… The same way the US army got medals for bravery for attacking Florida and defeating the blacks and natives there who had moved to Washington and no one was there.
Then there was the first transfer of wealth with the internet bubbles.. The behavior of the fed was very illogical.. They directly helped transfer this wealth from the people to the banksters.. It took billions to develop the internet infrastructure.. Who the banksters bought for pennies.. It really left a bad taste to see how this was done so openly as its part of capitalism… The housing bubble was just even more extreme to fleece not only the public but it was like swiping the entire planet of wealth that was on the table, wiping it clean in a single swipe.. There has been many such instances. Like the Asian financial crisis, the Russian financial crisis and on and on and on.. each time transferring all the wealth on the table to the banksters in the developed world.. the IMF being a part of this con. And don’t forget the UN is also part of this.. I mean you have 4 imperial powers in there.. US, UK, France, Russia.. So they kicked Russia out.. But it should be called the Imperial nations.. Why is China even in there? To give it legitimacy?
The pain the greeks are suffering is directly tied to hiring GS the imperial octopus.. The oligarchs stole all the funds and left the greek population with the debt.. directly facilitated by the imperial establishment.. Although the corruption like in any country let the people surf the decadence for many years because of it.. Kind of like just charging everything on your credit card until it came time to pay.. Does not matter that most of the charges were to pay for first class for your boss’s..
The very same thing is happening in the imperial homeland and they too shall learn the suckopus…
So lets dance the suckopus.. Because by the end we all will end up in its belly…
Thank you.Yes, parasitic frothy bubbles endlessly expanding,with shiny coloured illusive colours like you see on those kids toys sold to them so they can practise their future destinies.But it may not take much to destroy the bubbles surface tension so it all bursts….eg the ranchers stand off, rus own oil market, complete failure of ukraine,failure of IMF, saudi failure.Maybe what, who, will survive are only those remaining cultures like Rus, China, who still regard, know in all its depth their own histories,their own eternal flames and will keep them burning, and not be sold out to post modernism..
Living in Germany since 1970 I´d like to comment that:
The majority of Germans are russian-friendly.
greetings from bavarian forest.
As soon as I read your absolutely condescending comment essentially stating unless you were schooled in Russia you would be “completely unfamiliar (my verbage)” with Mendeleev and the story of his revelation concerning the Periodic Table, I had to stop further reading for a period of time, in disgust. I ask you, Scott, to contain your biases in a place in your head where it can be locked away for perpetuity. That is, forever.
After a cooling period, I began to read what remained. Although some of your assessments may be correct, most appear as simply conjecture and assumption. However, that is another issue. You can be assured, Scott, there are very well informed and educated individuals everywhere. I was exposed to Mendeleev prior to grade 5. Though you most likely find it difficult to fathom that it happenned outside of what was at the time the USSR.
Dear Charles Fasola
Thank you for your comments;
1. Let me get it straight: the Western anti-Russia stance for the past 5 centuries is a fair assessment, and my anti-Western stance is a bias? The West once again has put a gun to the Russia’s head and demands the Russians to be fair and unbiased.
Where have I heard this before?
2. In the best Western traditions of the freedom of speech, you demand me to self-censor myself in perpetuity? Hmmm… I shall refuse your offer.
3. I wrote that I had a revelation about the existence of God by studying chemistry in 5th grade.
4. “your absolutely condescending comment essentially stating unless you were schooled in Russia you would be “completely unfamiliar (my verbage)” with Mendeleev and the story of his revelation concerning the Periodic Table” –
I gather you have never went to an American public school? Well, me neither. Lucky us
Search here and look at images and tell me where do you see Mendeleev’s name.
5. ” most appear as simply conjecture and assumption” – Could you be more specific?
Another assumption Scott. I attended public school in Amerika. The school system here is certainly not what it was at the time I attended, back in the dark ages. However, there are many here among us who do not feel life is but a joke. Yes, as hard as it is for you to believe, some here actually made an effort to learn all about subjects and had teachers who inspired us to do so.
Contrary to another assumption you make many of us priviledged, exceptional, horribly misinformed american citizens actually believe Russia is on the right side of things. Hell, Scott, if it weren’t for my age I would like nothing more than to reside there. Where in my comment fid I make a negative statement concerning Russia? As far as asking you to censor, you are starting to sound a bit delusional. Instead what I asked was for you to not be so narrow minded. Is there some sort of language barrier we are dealing with, I must ask?
Finally, though you fail to realize it, a huge number of the American public is not in agreement with our governments policies. Think about it, would I bother with this blog, would I read Fort Russ, listen to Putin’s speeches, watch and support South Front if I was an anti-Russian, neo-con lovin’, bomb “em back to the stone ages troll. Pretty thin-skinned of you, there. Comrade.
Scott ,reality bubbles maybe but inorganic they might be but it is an arduous long project by some very erudite people over thousands of years.First they create false value by finance and money creation.Than they make and propagate religions including all religions ,than they make nationhood according to dissimilarity either by language or colour or by tradition or by geographical distance.Being creator of these corporations either political or religious they ofcourse they hold the pinnacles either by ideology or by finance.Than they cause enemities among all their creations as they sit back and load over all…who or what is this initiates?The world is a stage for this group ,the crucial thing is not what is reality but how it is made out to be by the narrative builders.Reality is made by them!
Excellent article! Unfortunately I have to agree with most of it.
As a young so called “millenial” european man, I can tell you that the overwhelming majority of us don’t want to go to war with Russia and die for our corrupt leaders and for the ponzi pension funds and fradulent bank accounts of our retarded parents/grandparents!
Just find a way to crash our financial system silently and suddenly without letting the neocons and thier buddies push trough a false flag propaganda blaming you for it. (for example introduce gold rubel/yuan…)
The youth of Europe wants peace and honest free trade with Russia, not war! The unfortunate fact is that the old idiots at the wheel will try to send us to war to cover thier crimes. Most of us don’t have the courage to stand up aginst them. Mostly because we already live like debst slaves (student loans etc.) deprived of our rights and self consciousness.
So my advice is if you wan’t to win (actually that way both of us wins) without a single shot fired: just heat up the generational conflict in Europe. Expose the parasitic financial ponzi schemes and frauds of the older generations.
Respect your inheritance, for good AND bad, deal with it, put your prejudices aside, stop deluding yourself that once initiated a conflict is easily controlled, stop pretending you are all powerful hiding behind the immature force of fellow youth. Soon you’ll be the subject of these prejudices and will dislike being at the end of it. Then again carrying yourself like that you might not even be around to mature.
I have no respect for liars, thieves, and coward financiers of mass murderers.
There is an old saying long forgotten between my folks, it sounds like this:

I added it to reflect on Vasco da Gama’s comment. He is using false, unfunded authority, and a fake suggestsive language to place himself in the position of bearer of wisdom.
Vasco da Gama! Hereby I ask you to explain to me, why should I have respect for those who consume today with piling on exponentially more and more debt and impoverish the coming generations? (abusing fiat money and fractional reserve banking)
Why should I have any sympathy for those, who literally “eat” their own children and grandchildren?
Not even animals do such things. It’s mass psychopathy.

– Insulting elder people. Not once but twice.
– Projecting same insults onto this audience and its relatives by blanket statement.
– Disrespect for the condition of being old and associated diminished capacities.
You can certainly rant in this forum the way you did (in as much as it passes the moderation), but don’t do it while expecting consenting silence just because you partially share a view here, the chances are you won’t get it if you don’t take due care to the extent of meaning of the words you employ.
Regarding substance, what good exactly would increased “generational conflict” bring? You have no idea how you misplace the responsibility for the wrongs of this world, already existing generational conflict being one of them as a matter of fact. It is pointless to proceed in answering your direct question before you understand these previous points.
Classic answer. Change subject. Project false authority.
So elderly thieves, murderers, and rapist should be exempt from their crimes, according to your “logic”?
You don’t want to answer my question, because you know that you cannot give a honest and legitimate one.
The basic facts are: The good people of the old guard let the banksters and their politician buddies impose a fraudulent system on you. Actually it happened in multiple steps and probably you were not alive at the start. But you can choose at what critical turning point you remained silent instead of protesting:
The establishment of the FED,
the abolition of the gold money system
or the 2008 Bail-outs?
I don’t care what was the reason for it, fear, ignorance or lack of knowledge it doesn’t change the fact.
I was born into this system, it was imposed on me without my consent. Furthermore there is a huge amount of pressure on the youth to take out new loans to buy stuff they cannot afford. (Witch to be honest I stopped long ago and I constantly remain debt free while only investing in productive capital and sustainable consumption as it should be according to the laws of physics. Also encourage others to do so, witch in itself makes me a “financial terrorist”, “bad consumer” in our overlords eyes….)
We are indoctrinated into this irresponsible behavior from the cradle to the coffin by the media, public school system and by our own parents.
This system borrows credit money into existence out of thin air and exponentially increases it’s supply trough fractional reserve lending. It’s fraudulent by design.
The middle aged/middle class people and pensioners today try to totally ignore it’s existence. You can’t have an honest conversation about it with them, because most of them knows they bought into a ponzi scheme.
This endless exponential credit expansion scheme destroys productive capital (their own childrens future) to facilitate instant consumption in the now. It bends the natural laws of economics and physical reality and shifts the responsibility of paying for it on the future generations trough interest payments on public debt, future taxation and inflation. Such thing never happened before in the history of mankind, not even in the darkest ages.
With remaining silent, and voting on politicians that enforce the “status quo” you let the banksters enrich themselves at the cost of your own children, just to keep your little pensions, paper/real estate investments and fraudulent bank accounts prices inflated beyond belief.
When the unsustainable ponzi crumbles under it’s own weight, you will blame the minorities, foreign economic and political reasons witch are in reality completely irrelevant.
Will you send your own children into the endless steppes of Russia to spill their guts to hide your failure, that’s the question?
I don’t know how old are you,but I suppose that you’re under 30.What about your generation achievements ? Let’s take the latest 25 years,or at least the last 10 years,the Color Revolutions,the bombing of Yugoslavia,the Arab Spring Saga and lately the systematically destruction of European identity with ” refugees”,while the “cake” is yet up to come…maybe you will be one day drafted and sent somewhere to show your skills to the bitter end…
At least you get it.
Now you have outlined the real issue, what are the solutions and what as a collective do we do to work towards such solutions?
The Financial System is a fraud.
The Political System is a fraud.
The Western Human Existence is a fraud.
So, what do we do about it without scorching the planet in the process and killing all live not just that of Humans but everything else as well??
How do we ensure that when such fraud is stopped, it will not again raise it’s ugly head and bring us about back to the same situation in the future?
Well, most youngsters are at least as addicted to the daily shopping and comfort as their parents. I think stirring up the generational conflict does not solve anything. And not to the least, our ancestors rebuilt Europe from the chaos they pushed it into. If we cannot fathom a solution without destruction, we risk going down the path to chaos again.
Let me put a few ideas for discussion (replies will take time as I will travel for a few days):
While money is a convenient tool for business, it should be understood that its intrinsic value is zero. What really counts is that somebody satisfies the demands for required services or goods. If it were not for the mistrust innate in us, society could run without money just by giving to the persons in need. In such a society, instead of grubbing money for future purchases, we would simply know that we can go anytime to the store and get what we need.
Unfortunately, such a society seems to be an utopia. It has been tried by small groups of people several times and, as far as I know, failed over and over again. After a short period, the greedy human nature of a few will hijack the common riches.
Fortunately, without giving money up, an unconditional basic income could be given to every citizen from birth to death. In conjunction with a significant tax on heritage and fortune above reasonable tax free amounts, an unconditional basic income could support a free society whilst throwing a wrench into the wheels of wealth over-accumulation.
Besides the financial system, I question very much the idea of representative democracy as being a good government tool. Representative democracy is just comfortable, but that is its biggest advantage. I my opinion, elections do not change anything significant. In fact, once elected parliament and government can pretty much do as they please for the remainder of the election period.
True democracy by its very nature is uncomfortable for everyone: for the people put in charge because of the daily critical judgement by the community, as well as for the citizens because of the time spent in assessing and correcting policies. A first step towards true democracy could be to populate the parliament and government by randomly assigning this duty to anyone having the active citizenship. Thereby, a representation of private and economic interests across all citizens would be warranted.
Secondly, all changes of the constitution should pass public scrutiny and a random selection of other legislative changes as well. The parliament would not know which law would have to pass the public verdict. Thirdly, contracts between a public institution and a private corporation/person should be publicly accessible. Secret contracts should be outlawed as they undermine public scrutiny and trust.
I see a lot things there that we agree on. I’ve thought deeply about ideas on societal needs as well. Most of what I’ve come up with fit very well into what you have talked about. The system today leave’s far too much room for powerful people to be able to “manipulate” it for their own private or class benefit. One of the most horrendous examples being laws that conflate a corporations “rights” with that of a human person’s rights. Equating money as “free speech” being one of the worst of the lot.
My message might not have been clear. You might have thought that I’m a communist of some sort, it cannot be further from the truth.
I’m not against money at all! It is probably the best invention of mankind! Most of today’s problematic issues derive from the fact that we use fake, corrupted money!
We need an honest, transparent and free, monetary system. We need to abolish the debt based government fiat ponzi schemes that today rules the world.
We need to have free market competition in money. I don’t care if it’s gonna be gold, silver, crypto-currency or something else, or even all the before mentioned parallel together!
Just take away the banksters and politicians power to manipulate the financial system. I believe in general people are smart enough to figure out themselves, whats best and most practical to be used as money!
If we would use money that has no counterparty risk involved, that cannot be manipulated by a third party at no expense, we would get rid of most of the worlds miseries,
Please do not worry. My remarks concerning money were my own and not intended as a rebuttal of whatever you wrote. Money is indeed a very comfortable tool for trade, but I also think that it is very hard to get rid of it racketeering property.
The national banks should become again the sole lender of last resort, hence the only bank allowed to inflate the amount of money circulating in the economy. This would lead to a “whole money system” in which _all_ credits would be backed by a counter-credit from the national banks if not backed by other liquid assets.
The national banks should be owned exclusively by the populations they serve, such that excess wealth flows back to those who created them. Only in a whole money system, the national banks are able to control inflation by raising and lowering interest rates.
Chances that such a people-owned whole money system will be installed are pretty low, because it would literally abolish 95% of banks profits.
” Expose the parasitic financial ponzi schemes and frauds of the older generations.”
Thought this might interest you. Thomas Jefferson, the intellectual & political leader of the American Revolution, wrote:
“Every constitution then, and every law, naturally expires at the end of 19 years. If it be enforced longer, it is an act of force, and not of right. It may be said that the succeeding generation exercising in fact the power of repeal, this leaves them as free as if the constitution or law had been expressly limited to 19 years only.”
Jefferson further explained his approach to the next generation in his letter to James Madison:
“I set out on this ground, which I suppose to be self evident, ‘that the earth belongs in usufruct to the living’:”
“Then I say the earth belongs to each of these generations, during it’s course, fully, and in their own right. The 2d. Generation receives it clear of the debts and incumberances of the 1st. The 3d of the 2d. and so on. For if the 1st. Could charge it with a debt, then the earth would belong to the dead and not the living generation.”
It is a lovely day on my peninsula. I think I’ll take a walk.
“The one thing they really seem to believe is that the rest of the human race must behave with perfect chivalry to the German people, whatever the German people might have done. ..” youpp,a good example of unlimited hate towards the germans.Sometimes I’m wondering how far may some people go,without knowing the whole truth.The same perceptions came out from the western media,including those in germany…the truth has just been lost somewhere.Of course,many bad things have been made in the second world war – in this case in the Soviet Union – but is there a “clean” and “decent” war ?
Agreed. It says something when a random comment from a random person on the internet, be it in part or in full, is presented as ‘evidence’ just because it shares contempt against a whole nationality of 80 million.
The US wanted to use super bombs of 75,000 tons of plutonium to destroy most of the population of the USSR.. If you thought this was unlikely since Americans are such nice guys… Lets look at what they did to north korea… Now which other country lost 20% of its population and considered it a holocaust?
The number of inhabitants of Pyongyang killed by bomb splinters, burnt alive and suffocated by smoke is incalculable…Some 50,000 inhabitants remain in the city which before the war had a population of 500,000.”
“In the early 1950s, during the Korean War, the US dropped more bombs on North Korea than it had dropped in the entire Pacific theater during World War II. This carpet bombing, which included 32,000 tons of napalm, often deliberately targeted civilian as well as military targets, devastating the country far beyond what was necessary to fight the war.
Dean Rusk, a supporter of the war and later secretary of state, said the United States bombed “everything that moved in North Korea, every brick standing on top of another.” After running low on urban targets, U.S. bombers destroyed hydroelectric and irrigation dams in the later stages of the war, flooding farmland and destroying crops……
Hundreds of tons of bombs and incendiary compound were simultaneously dropped throughout the city, causing annihilating fires, the transatlantic barbarians bombed the city with delayed-action high-explosive bombs which exploded at intervals for a whole day making it impossible for the people to come out onto the streets.
This is why the North is building nukes, they remember… The native Americans are not around to remember…
Hi Scott. I enjoy reading your posts, this one in particular. Regarding your epiphany, I wonder if you have come across the philosopher Thomas Reid? In what you write I was reminded again of his work on the common senses which I won’t attempt to provide a synopsis here, but which also attempts to point out the rational nature of everything, which is in effect that the universe does not lie. It can be perplexing, or confusing, or appear abstract, but that doesn’t mean that it is untruthful.
This philosophy comes to mind when I come across the mistaken interpretation of the world is such comments like, this is paraphrasing, “we create reality and while you are trying to sort it out,” etc. of course these pitiful individuals do not create reality, they in fact at their worst create deeper problems, about which it is child’s play for some to regard with a concept of irony, were it not for the end game of destruction and misery we are watching evolve in a creeping fashion, praying that our fate might be more gentle than the youths at the bottom of that mine shaft. One can only hope.
Very interesting rant by Scott and I wholeheartedly agree. Going back quickly to the Cynthia McKinney interview here on the Sakers blog, I have only just gotten round to watching it, and she mentioned operation Northwoods where the CIA planned on downing an American plane and blaming Fidel Castro for it using the incident to get the American publics approval for an invasion of Cuba, this is all documented fact. I heard that and I thought, this is exactly the same scenario or script they have used for 9/11 to launch their endless war of terror across the middle east !
These monsters hardly have an original thought in their heads, they will use the same tired formula and variants thereof over and over again (e.g. passports “pointing” out the identities of perpetrators being miraculously “found” at 9/11, at Charlie Hebdo, at the Paris Bacalan shootings, etc.) till it falls to shreds.
“The one thing they really seem to believe is that the rest of the human race must behave with perfect chivalry to the German people, whatever the German people might have done”.
This is the mentality of people who see themselves as being “exceptional” and “superior” to all others. In short it is the mentality of the psychopath. I also fully agree with Scotts assessment as to the reasons we suddenly had a massive influx of refugees from Syria last year, it was Erdogan emptying his refugee camps and pointing them in the direction of Europe, to be used by the EU donkeys into manipulating their populations into supporting the invasion of Syria and its subsequent destruction, which is what I believe prompted president Putin to launch his intervention at the time he did and put a stop to their plans. They are evil beyond description with no soul nor any vestiges of a conscience or humanity. They are anti-humans and enemies of the whole world.
A Ukrainian friend of mine (he is Russian-Ukrainian in a Bandera occupied area.) posted a video of a nightclub act in Kiev. It shows them killing Russians in an entertainment act.I think it reminds me of something we’ve seen before:
Scott, your bubbles theory strikes close to the heart of all things imperial, I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. It explains a lot of things… “follow the money”! So many mysteries of Imperial society become understandable… “grants”… foundations… academics… “liberal arts”… who is paying for it all? The lords of the money-printing machine, that’s who. And you have to be on the inside and follow the script to get a piece of the pie; otherwise you will not drink cheap wine at the opening party. Starikov is great on the history of the money machine.
MSF getting hit again. Third time. I thought that they were thoroughly infiltrated by the Hegemon and deemed an intelligence asset? Have they annoyed somebody?
Starting with the first hit on MSF, was it Afghanistan, I became suspicious that, A, MSF is a sincere and clean project, and that B, that constitutes a threat to the empire What a crock of excuses and evasions concerning these events. Of all the disgusting crimes of the pscycos, these are the most abominable. Keep on keeping on, all my friends.
4th time in Yemen itself and killed a doctor.. and many of starving pictures are from Yemen, not Syria..
This was a real MSF hospital.. not one where they delivered medical supplies only like the one that was bombed in Syria….
All very nice and fun in that ski resort, in Sochi I understand, but I wonder if you want to make us understand that all those enjoying there are ordinary Russians? I fear not, because the average Russian salary is very low and, even in the EU, specifically in Spain, the sport of skiing is out of reach of ordinary workers, I fear that in Russia also.
For to practice skiing in Sochi, or Baqueira Beret or in any station in Huesca or French Pirinees, you must have enough money to have the right equipment or, otherwise, rent it, and have the money and the vacation necessary to get there. Therefore, it is not available to the majority ( some of whom do not earn enough to pay their bills or eat decently the whole month, or do not earn anything at all because they are unemployed or not even have or never take vacations because they can not afford it ) but to the privileged few who are always benefiting from the liberal market economy.
If what you want us to understand it is that the facilities of Sochi have been profitable, then maybe you’re right, but for the avoidance of doubt, it would be best to see the economic performance of these facilities.
I can see you skipped my article in its entirety and went directly for the video and humor, which is fine with me. I strive to please everyone
Your statement is fair enough and I don’t want to challenge you here: “All very nice and fun in that ski resort, in Sochi I understand, but I wonder if you want to make us understand that all those enjoying there are ordinary Russians? I fear not, because the average Russian salary is very low.”
But if you try to read my article, you would understand that Russia, as the rest of the non-Western world, experiencing an artificially created and maintained “poverty.” In Russia, It was imported by the occupation of Russia by the US in 1990s, and maintained by the “hot” money, capital flight, private ownership of mineral resources, subsidies for the economies of Ukraine and Belarus, and other forms of wealth removal, and also by the sanctions against Russia, and by the arm conflicts along the country’s borders.
Money is like vital fluids for the economy. No organism can survive and prosper if most of its vital fluids are being regularly drained.
If it wasn’t not for the Western economic war on Russia, Russia would be a truly peaceful and prosperous country.
Thanks for the “Read on Twitter: By “Blog del Viejo Topo:”
I can’t find a link, but president Putin has recently said that Russia is a society where strong socialist features like support for wellbeing of the population by the state is combined with the freedom of enterprise. This is the mainframe for the development of the country.
Yes, Scott, you are right, I went straight to the video and humor section seeming to me that every part of your rant could be read separately for lack of time. Look, with the comments I’ve made on this blog today (leading me quite time because of my poor English) I spent all my spare time here and even my not spare time (should already be in bed), but I assure you I’ll read it later, if I can, since production in this blog is so bloated right now that you have to choose and, unfortunately for me, many articles and videos are left behind without reading or seeing them. I can not do otherwise, because I work during all week and, on weekends, I like also to get some fresh air.
About what V.V,Putin says, must be accompanied by corroborating facts about that what he says is got made. Sometimes, specially lately, I have had some doubts. I still support him, specially in his fight against the AngloZionists Empire, in the war in Novorussia and Syria, but, if I ever find he is not with the people, he will find me in front.
What I found most hurting was, when the food imports now (understandably blocked/banned by Russia) got _destroed_ at the border checkpoints, rather than given to the poor.
I understand that it is difficult to implement something like that (corruption, black market) but at least it should have been attempted!!!!!
(with 5 ‘!’ marks)
However, I don’t know enough if Putin was aware or even directly responsible for this, or maybe some 5th collone element in the Kremlin who was guided to create such a situation, to plant unrest into Russia and to re-market such stories all over the word on “Radio Liberty” style mouthpieces.
To destroy perfectly intact food while millions of Russians (or Ukrainians in Russia) or poor around the globe die from hunger, disease and lack of $$$ for healthcrae – that’s simply a SHAME
That’s how Mammon(the god) works around ….read the post of mmiriww below
The quality of Ukrainian and European made food on the Russian market was becoming dangerously low during Maidan and after. Even finely-ground glass was found in some batches of cheese and butter.
This food products are coming from the hostile countries, from the enemy territories.
Now, since it’s banned, it’s not being inspected. We don’t know who is trying to smuggle this products into the country illegally. It can be very dangerous for people to eat.
All around, good riddance.
Don’t let the stats fool you.. Over 50% of American families earn under $50K/year… That’s not a single person but the entire family filing taxes.. and those who get paid under the table make far less.. I think 90% of American families make less than 100k.. Only like 2% make around 200K.. the top 1% make tens of millions or billions.. Like the top 10 people make more money than 95% of Americans combined.. Its the same in china and Mexico.. So the US economy is supported by these 5% of people or like 25 million people.. The actual wealth is owed by corporations..
Now you know why China is a big market.. 200 mil or so middle class people.. india 100 mil or so.. Even Russia has a larger middle class..
So tell me, in the US if you live in SF or LA or NY.. what would 100K get you? 60% or so goes in taxes.. so you live on 40K for everything else.. My take home pay was 30% of what I earned.. I checked my pay stub.. No wonder I got more and more in debt the more bonus I got..
Also note, families and families paying housing loans and 10 kids gets to not pay much taxes.. single mothers get money back as well.. so the 95% of people get almost around the same money to take home as the taxes and deductions almost balance everything out like communism.. The ones who got it made are when both spouses get management jobs.. Where almost all expenses get paid by the company.. so even if their take home pay is not much, that’s just money in the bank.. Maybe why so many of them break up.. because that is not family life.. you are always out on a business meeting.. because there the company picks up the tab..
Life aint what it looks like on the surface… All the brand spanking shinny cars and stuff.. no one can afford to buy them.. Once you reach a point, then you are untouchable and people call you sir… But until then its rough…
Ordinary Russians can easily enjoy skiing. My 4 y.o. granddaughter has skiing lessons in kindergarten. They catch the public bus to the public ski base in the nearby hills. Most children have their own equipment as it is not very expensive. Those that cannot afford the equipment can hire it at token prices (for children’s equipment).
This is not in some big Russian city, but a town of 50,000 in Western Siberia.
The town Duma and local residents construct gorky (ice slides) outside the Dom Kultura (House of Culture) and the Town Square in December, prior to Novy God (New Year) for the children to use. You only need a piece of cardboard to use these, and the local shops flatten and save their used boxes for the kids to use.
The soccer fields are turned into skating rinks for both ice hockey and general skating and ice skates are available for cheap hire.
Where winter is a four month long fact of life, winter fun is readily available.
Glad to hear Stephen.
Here in Spain, at least in the Basque Country, students are also taken to the slopes in the so called “white week”, but it is doubtful that most of these children when they were adults can maintain that hobby, because working conditions right now in Spain, after the labour reforms imlposed bt The Troika, will not allow them, not only go skiing ( this nor dream about it) but to get the most basic, go to live independent from their parents, have a home or to start a family, with the salaries of misery many are paid.
I understand your concern for ordinary russians but I can say that we have family & friends who are living there & maybe I’ve not heard of them going skiing in sochi but there is plenty of snow everywhere & when we lived there ski equipment was cheap so much so that expatriates of our acquaintance were buying it up just in case they might go skiing one day,
of our friends & family both in moscow & the regions I regularly ask them how things are going with inflation etc & they are all doing fine, both those working & those on putins pensions,
I really think it is unnecessary to object to a lovely video clip of russians having fun, maybe some of them live near sochi, russians can & do have fun, despite every thing,
Would also be desirable to avoid publishing jokes/ comments that make fun of raping or vexatious condition of women in some Muslim countries, which are, IMO, in very bad taste.
Otherwise you are a good writer and very clever, as I have said you some times.

Thank you for this image of the foam of bubbles, which I found particularly apt.
Nevertheless I would not agree about Germans, whom (from France) I find particularly “conscious of their parents guilt” though, particularly in the South (who in majority voted against Hitler in 1932, and were forced into “Prussian wars” which were not their own), it was not so as much as they are told. It is a way, for Washington propaganda apparatus, to control them (“if you deviate from what we told you to think, you are falling again in Nazism”).
Please do not give in the tale “European hate Russian” as much as French people give (less and less, fortunately) in the tale “evil-Putin wants to eat Europe”.
European governments are mainly traitors, it is a fact, but we have no choice except the final one between two equally corrupted and incompetent puppets, pushed by equally corrupted parties. What a fine thing, democracy!
If there wasn’t already a million reasons that the fascist junta in Ukraine must be destroyed. Here is the million and one,that I saw on Fort Russ. When liberation comes the firing squads will need to work overtime for days to deal with ones like this man:
“Poroshenko’s Advisor Calls Russians “Small, Harmful Insects”
An advisor to the President of Ukraine, Yuri Biryukov, has made extremely unflattering comments about the Russians.
The politician, who had just returned from vacation, had wondered about hatred towards Russians, whether they were an “immutable and necessary attribute of any resort”.
According to him, citizens of Russia today have changed and look “hushed and exhausted”. Although, he continues, they still have “Imperial manners and ambitions”.
“Should they be hated? Well no. I haven’t experienced such feelings. Just disgust. The same as towards any small and harmful insect. That same feeling at the moment of striking one with your shoe. It’s a pity that our shoes aren’t ready yet,” wrote Biryukov on his page on Facebook.
“Should Russians be hated? Or is hate for the weak? Or am I confused…
It just so happens that this is the first real vacation in two years, somewhere even shameful. Well, there’s the beach, sea, beer, all of that. And yes, there are Russians. They are the Immutable and indispensable attribute of any resort. Well no, not stamping feet, not always drunk, not always yelling, and not always eating. Now it’s quite the contrary – some are hushed, a bit exhausted. But not totally tired out. They still don’t deserve any illusory pity. They still have Imperial aspirations and ambitions. But already without the strain and without tearing shirts off their chests.
Should they be hated? Well no. I haven’t experienced such feelings.
Just disgust. The same as towards any small and harmful insect…
That same feeling at the moment of striking one with your shoe…
It’s a pity that our shoes aren’t ready yet.
But it’s a work in progress.”

Scott writes, “[sex is] driven by the physiological need”.
Scott! “Take Heed”! Sex is a desire. Sex is not a “physiological need”.
A Parable: : You can be the first person to travel alone to Mars; die alone on Mars and still live a Righteous Fulfilling Life. You don’t “need” sex, physiologically, like food and water. You : do : “need” communication, and with the “outside world’.
Remember though, food and water is for the body; Those Guantanamo, Cuba, 9/11 ‘Faith Healers’ – who are starving themselves to death. They are refusing to “need” food and water; Yet they’re a-Live in Spirit.
They are “living” in life as ‘Spiritual Masters’ – defined as, “surmounting all physical desires and letting the body die unto itself”. That is the highest form of bravery! Defined as ‘Saintliness’: “Not Killing another, Killing the little self by the Higher Self!”
Scott, remove ‘driven’ behaviors from ‘sexual’ behaviors. If any “thought” : IS : driven long enough and hard enough, it should be self-evident, it’s physical manifestation will be dysfunction to the self and those around the self. For instance, sexually driven thoughts lead to rape and pillage as a release from mental boredom.
It’s quite liberating to free sex from ego-drives and return sex to mental union with God –
And what “liberates the Self”, eventually manifests into a Liberal of The Self; and that “Liberalism” – is a Godly Thing!

“Anonymous”: “How does celibacy…lead, “to psychological conflict””?

You write: “Scott writes, “[sex is] driven by the physiological need”.
Scott! “Take Heed”! Sex is a desire. Sex is not a “physiological need”. ”
I’m sorry, but you missed my point.
I maintain that what had happened in Cologne was a US orchestrated PSYOP.
Talking about sex as a “physiological need,” I made a directly referral to the following quotation that I posted below:
“The book written by German Professor Miriam Gebhardt “When the soldiers came” has caused a shock in Europe. A German Professor has debunked the myth of the “atrocities” of the Red Army: the Germans were massively raped by the Anglo-Saxons.”
And also, “The study, based on the study of wartime archives not only in France but in the U.S., helped to identify the fact that violence and satisfaction of physiological needs were the main methods used by the American military to “establish their authority over the French”.
I had been trying to demonstrate to you that the US always uses the same type of operations to demoralize, and subjugate population.
The Americans think that if a scheme worked once, it will work again.
And it often does, sadly, with the favorable for the Americans and devastating for a targeted population results.
The American schemes and PSYOPs against the populations of different countries will stop working when we stop reacting to their PSYOPs with fear, and start analyzing them. We have to be very cold and analytical, and ask our fellow countrymen to act in the same way.
It doesn’t mean that Washington will stop trying to provoke chaos. It means that their operations will seize producing results they want.
I didn’t mentioned, but the American power structure reminds me Stephen King’s The Langoliers. Each one of us separately, and all of us together are like the passengers on a plane being chased by all consuming hungry black spheres Langoliers.
Let’s pop those bubbles together!

I think a more accurate portrayal of Americas behaviour in the world today can be seen in another of Stephen Kings books called Needful Things. If no one has read this book I highly recommend it. Americas behaviour on the world stage uncannily reminds me of the behaviour of Leland Guant, the proprietor of the “shop” Needful Things in Stephen Kings book.
“I maintain that what had happened in Cologne was a US orchestrated PSYOP”
I agree wholeheartedly with that point; However, deferring to a Scientific Study to ‘unassailable prove’ violence and sex our physiological needs – is not logic, it’s deferring to a higher authority – to which i don’t submit to.
Thus, i am not “missing your point”. You still accept the premise of the Scientific Study as accurate, which is, “the fact that violence and satisfaction of physiological needs” is a rational motivation for violence and rape; and i am saying the irrational drives are not the reason, there is something even deeper than violence and rape in the psyche. There is a rational basis for essentially “castration anxiety”.
@”The delightful account of the battles around the Russian gas and Russian money and Ukraine has been recently given by Mark Nesop, The Kremlin Stooge.
You simply cannot afford not to read it.”
I really want to read it, but I cannot get the page to open no matter what link to it I try.
and page down to “The Unbearable Unseemliness of Partnership” if it is no longer at the top
He has quite an eloquent way with words -especially adjectives- that resonate well with fellow ranters. Worth a read.
Thanks for the links, but I think these are the links I already tried, and I still get the same “Connection was reset” message. The page/site does not open up.
Perhaps someone can post the text here, on this thread?
I’m a patterns analyst. Not for pay. My mind works that way. I love your “bubbles” pattern, and what’s more it seems pretty accurate.
NB – Putin actually referred to the “Vertikal” in his autobiography. It was related to the levels, area management, district governor, Moscow etc. He said he believed it was essential to restore it after the 1990′ rape fest had destroyed it, along with everything else.
Your information about the disinformation regarding rape of women when Europe fell apart after WWII was new to me, illuminating, and horrifying. Yet, you know, the most horrifying part? When you stated that papers had been found demonstrating it as part of the US / Allies campaign, not one part of me doubted. It was instantly, in light of all my years of knowledge and experience, totally believable. What does that say?
It seems from some of the “from the ground quotes” that by the time Europe has found someone with some cojones to throw of the US shackle and put out a hand to Russia, it will be too late.
Russia will simply shrug and walk away. A sort of closing scene from Gone with the Wind.
“It’s all over baby. I thought my tolerance couldn’t die. It did. Good bye”.
And – thanks for the laughs. God I love Russian humour and I dont get to laugh enough these days. So – that was needed.
A very good piece, well done. And again – Thanks.
Great piece Scott. Very much enjoyed the links.
You’re right of events in Germany, it’s a psyop.
It’s also sexual terrorism, of all people exposed to media. This so-called mass rape is basically an excercise in mass humiliation, by the occupiers of Europe with their media, excercising an apparently unlimited power to control thinking.
Here I humbly offer an antidote for what they arouse, the last scene from Kubrick’s Paths to Glory:
Scott would be interesting to know your thought about what these bubbles are doing to the very same American economy. Middle class is diminishing more and more being replaced by poor people. So these bubbles no question are harming the very core (middle class) of the US.
Scot , You said – quote”The bubbles are semi-intelligent: when the source of the money dries up, these bubbles are capable of detaching and moving on to greener pastures, without drying up and disappearing.”
Eerily when I was watching the movie “indepence day ” in late 90s I discovered the modus operandi of angloamericans .
In the film the american oresident accuses the animal parasite from akien world to come to sone wirkds and attach itself to it to suck it dry and then move on to suck dry another world in a parasitic way. The film also shiwed the intention of british in middke east -thise pàrasites were still in northern iraq protecting kurds !
So what the accusation was made by the americans to the alien parasites is exactly how english and anglos behave ib the world.
That thing i had said way back in mid 90s.
Scenes like in a War zone: 31.12.2015 Berlin
VIDEO: Muslim Migrants in Berlin Shoot Guns, Throw Explosives
I think that the author of the video put a tipical New Years eve party on the street on tape.
The use of real firearms is very strictly controlled in Germany.
You can buy a “Schreckschusspistole” , aka a pistol for dummy ammunition or for signal-flares freely.
The use of “explosives” , aka firecrackers and similars is “National Sport” in Germany at that moment (31-12 , 24:00).
So I don´t know if the guys in the tape are immigrants ore native germans , but the scene is absolut normal at New Years Eve in Germany.
Nein, bei uns im Osten werden keine Leute mit Boellern absichtlich angeschossen. Erst recht nicht mit Schreckschusspistolen oder Leuchtmunition.
Das ist nicht normal.
(No, that’s not normal. At us in East-Berlin nobody directs whatever fireworks directly at randomly passing strangers, with full intention and accepting that people might probably get hurt.)
Ah, I forgot: It is clearly visible several times, that these are some turks or arabs (no matter how long they already live here, which can not be found out).
@Scott you said “Anything to stop buying gas from evil Russia.
I completely disagree with the Andrew Korybko who named alleged actions of alleged migrants [new information is that some of the detained are Europeans, one is from Serbia, and one is American] from the Middle East in Europe as “Sexual terrorism.”
To me it looks like a good old United State’s PSYOP.”
If you see how the british infiltrated RT is spewing racist propaganda about koln new year misbehaviour by refugees the canera shiws english accented man telling racist vigilant grouo abd then he says in clear english accent ” merkel has to go ”
It really is an attack on Germany by the jelous english nation and it is english wh o are behind all this chaos.
The fact that RT is also supporting this agenda makes it more ckear that RT is really running english agenda with money tajen from russia.
How stupid russians can be .?
Amazing, no ?
I like the description of the Western power system as foamy bubbles seeking resources. A lot of truth in that.
It is true that the rapes of the american , british and french soldiers in occupied Germany are a story that was long time covered under a blanket by the german media.
But to conclude , that the stories about the rapes from soviet soldiers to german women of that time are a lie ,is an attempt to falsify the events.
I am born in Berlin and what happened to mi grandparents and all our family is not an invention , but a first hand report about the atrocities and rapes commited by members of the red army.
You know who is Ilya Ehrenburg ?
Kill! Kill! In the German race there is nothing but evil; not one among the living, not one among the yet unborn but is evil! Follow the precepts of Comrade Stalin. Stamp out the fascist beast once and for all in its lair! Use force and break the racial pride of these German women. Take them as your lawful booty. Kill! As you storm onward, kill, you gallant soldiers of the Red Army.
I didn´t see the opus of miss Ash , but I remember perfectly what the survivors of the rapes perpetrated by the red army told me.
In the german army existed also orders similar to the order from 20th april (Supreme Command) quoted at the link , which puts under punishment the rapes of the women of the conquered territories.
Great rant. I found the description of the Western power structure inspiring. Here is a little more detail of how the bubbles work.
Greece was never a nazi ally.
Greece was attacked andconquered by the 3rd reich, imediately after successfully pushing back their other ally, the fascist italy, against all odds.
Greece lost about 10% of its population, from fighting and famine.
Otherwise it is a nice piece, but you shouldn’t write such inaccuracies.
You write about stuff the western media mutes. Mix it with innacuracies, and you discredit it.
You’re right, EB. I removed it. I don’t know how it got there. probably was thinking about something else. I write without an editor right now, so it hard to see all the bugs.
Does anyone know if the book “Als die Soldaten kamen” mentioned in the ‘rant’, has been translated into English?
You are so correct.
My family was fighting Germans since the beginning, My father’s uncle and his son died fighting the Germans in Thessaly. My father and his brother were in cavalry group of Aris Velouxiotis. My father got wounded the day they we celebrating liberation of Greece, in Athens.
My deepest gratitude to your family members who had died fighting with the Nazis.
They were the real heroes.
In all honesty, I was not expecting a citation from a comment written by ‘Pavlo Svolochenko’. He is not someone I would trust. I’m hoping that what he writes does not reflect the majority opinion of the Russian population.
