Caveat one: Wishful thinking is considered bad, pollyannish, naïve, deluded, etc. Fine. I will plead “guilty” to all of these and boldly proceeded to express some terminal wishful thinking. I will do that because I do believe that it is sometimes important to set aside such otherwise precious things as realism and the so-called “real world” and to unabashedly proclaim that the world we live in is not the world we wished to be living in and that while we might break under the weight of reality, we sill are capable of remembering the ideals we hold dear. And then maybe, our wishes, at least some of them, will come true.
Caveat two: I won’t bother explaining the facts. Those who by now failed to understand what is happening will not be convinced otherwise anyway, as for those who understand, they don’t need me to rehash it all.
Let me begin by a confession. I support the western sanctions against Russia. I love the Magnitsky Act. The day the Eurovision was won by a Ukronazi manipulated Tatar in clear violation of the Eurovision rules, I was delighted. Likewise, I whole-heartedly support the campaign to denounce homophobia in Russia. I think that the NATO summit in Warsaw was a stunning success and I applaud the deployment of NATO battalions in Poland, the Baltics and, frankly, all around the Russian border. I think that Victoria Nuland and Mc Caine should be the next recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize and, of course, I totally support the complete expulsion of all Russian athletes from the Olympic Games.
I support all of the above because they all serve to show the true face of the AngloZionist Empire, something which the Russian people greatly need.
The latest decision by the three judges of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) – one Italian, one Brit and one American – is a perfect example of the truly cosmic level of hypocrisy and double-standards which is not only customary, but the hallmark of the Empire’s application of so-called “western values” towards Russia. It is also a casebook example of the use of “soft power” which goes even beyond strategic psychological operations.
Let me immediately make a disclaimer here: I do not believe that there is a world-wide conspiracy to try to hurt, weaken or defame Russia. Though it is possible, never say never, but I find it unlikely that the judges as the Eurovision or the CAS were paid to take their decision. This is not how this works.
What happens in this: the Empire uses some of its assets to begin a Russia-bashing/Putin-bashing campaign. At the same time, Russian actions inside Russia (such as the law on registering foreign agents) and outside Russia (08.08.08, Crimea, Donbass, Syria) are presented as horrible violations of human rights and international law. And if Putin is supported by 80% or more of Russians, it must be because he is a ruthless KGB agent, because he stuck all his opponents in jail or even killed them and because there is no free press in Russia.
And then you bring in one single German presstitute, Hajo Seppelt, to make several documentaries with no evidence whatsoever about how the doping in Russia is organized by the Russian state and that is enough to start an international campaign which, unsurprisingly, gets the support of the sports federations of the countries most likely to benefit from the absence of Russians. Truth be told, besides the poor Brazilians, who are on the US “hit list” anyway, nobody needs Russia in the next Olympics, especially not after the Russian triumph in Sochi.
That kind of “psychological preparation of the battlefield” is quite enough to take your typical western spineless bureaucrat (that is what these judges are) to know what is best for him and vote the right way. That, and the unspoken understanding of what will happen to you if you, shall way say, go the “Scott Ritter way”: you will end up like him.
This is why I support all these anti-Russian moves: because each time the latest double-standard is applied to Russia the number of people in Russia who believe in the decency of the AngloZionist Empire shrinks. This is why I spoke of a “much deserved slap in the face” of Russia when the Eurovision thing happened. Not that I want the Russian people to be humiliated, not at all, but I do want them to wake up and put pressure on the Kremlin to do the right thing.
And here is, in my wishful thinking, what I believe Russia ought to do:
Withdraw from any and all venue which are under AngloZionist control. Stay at the UN were Russia and China have veto power at the SC, and get out of any organization or venue which is clearly controlled by AngloZionist interests. And yes, there will be a price to pay for that. But what is taking place today between the Empire and Russia is a war, albeit a new kind of war, one which is 80% informational, 15% economic and 5% military. And you cannot fight a war without taking losses and paying a price. Besides, the last time around the West attacked Russia lost millions of her people, so I don’t consider it too much a price to pay to have Russian athletes or singers removed from AngloZionist controlled events.
Not only that, but Russia is big and rich enough, especially in talented people, to organize her own events, not only in sports and music, but also in many other international activities. Why not have a Russia based international human rights organization to compete against the CIA or Soros controlled ones? Oh sure, the western media will ridicule it just as they ridiculed RT. But they sure ain’t ridiculing RT anymore – because of the immense success RT has had internationally (did you know that one of the first measures taken by the new pro-US Argentinian government was to yank the licenses of RT and Telemundo in Argentina? So goes democracy…).
Yeah, I know, there are numerous lobbies inside Russia who made their wealth on working with (for?) the West. From the “economic bloc” in the Medvedev government to the big money movers in sports, the idea of simply pulling out from AngloZionist controlled venues will encounter tremendous opposition in Russia. But here is the good news: the vast majority of the Russian people are not tied in this system and they don’t have a “where I sit is where I stand” interest in accepting slap after slap after slap from the Empire. So the key to it all is to empower the regular people and weaken the grip of the financial elites. Exactly what Putin has been doing since he came to power.
Will that ever happen? So far, the approach Putin has take is not to slam the door and leave. Instead he simply facilitated the creation of new venues (he did that with Russian money reserves for example). So, who knows? He might do something similar this time around. But I personally think that no Russian athlete should go to Rio, not with a “neutral” label, not even with a Russian flag. I would apologize to the Brazilians and tell them that this is nothing personal, but that Russia cannot go. Why? Because even if “only” Russian track and field athletes are collectively sanctioned, then all the others risk the same treatment the next time around. Besides, call me passé, but I believe in such antiquated notions as honor, solidarity and dignity. I cannot imagine one athlete going while knowing that other, innocent ones, have been banned. It would be the ultimate victory for the AngloZionists if they succeeded in splitting up Russian athletes into two categories: banned ones and humiliated one. Personally? I would much prefer to be in the first group than in the second one.
Interesting. But I think Russia should not voluntarily withdraw from these organizations. She should make the West fight for every “Victory” A few more victories like this and the West will have destroyed its own soft power. Russians can see whats happening, so can the world. Every such attack on Russia creates additional resistance to the empire around the world. Russia will win. Of that I have no doubt. But it must not be seen to be isolating itself or withdrawing from the fight.
Russia must set up alternative structures for all these organizations. Structures that are democratic and give the other members a voice. This will stand in stark contrast to the western dominated ones.
A great and constructive comment even if I’m not sure whether I’m with you or The Saker at the point of posting.
The West has a long history of this type of thing, so a few more of them won’t make much difference. Saker’s right: look at the (much deserved) success of RT. Why not duplicate it in other areas, too?
I agree that RT is success, if judged by range of programming and numbers of viewers. But a success if judged by journalism standards, I beg to differ.
On every false flag event, Sandy Hook, Charlie Hebdo, Nice, Munich etc, the reporting has been no different from Sky News, CNN, or the BBC. Not once, have I ever heard an RT journo ever even question the mainstream narrative. They are on the ground, in the locations of these events. They either are not allowed to question the narrative, or they are incapable of investigating and reporting facts and just read the Reuters or AP script. For me, I find RT a das dissapointment.
@”Russians can see whats happening, so can the world.”
Russian journalists should have made documentaries about the doping in Germany long time ago(German state TV started this propaganda campaign against Russian athletes in 2014). This would be very easy because German athletes and politicians admitted it openly and – in constrast to German state TV – they could do it without fabricating conspiracy theories. That way people could see Western double standards even more easily because they wonder why for example the German football team is not excluded from the World Cup and the European Football Championship.
Schweinsteiger says he stops by three or four times a month for treatments. Sometimes he’ll take injections, including Actovegin, before every match at major tournaments.
“You feel it after five minutes in the legs,” he offers. “It brings them back to life. It is perfect for me.”
Schäuble about doping:
“We want those agents restricted and used under a doctor’s responsibility, because there appears to disciplines in which without the use of these means of competitive sports competition in the world competition can no longer be kept up today.”
US professional sports is riddled with doping, Lance Armstrong was American, Flo Jo was American (poor girl), not Russian, and we are expected to believe that the USA is pristine and Russia UNIQUELY Evil. And there is not a SINGLE voice in the whole sewer of the Western MSM that dares deviate from the habitual 100% Groupthink, one millimetre. And this vile, vile, vile cess-pool has the gall to call itself ‘Western Civilisation’ and endlessly declare its absolute superiority to the rest of humanity, a claim enforced by ceaseless aggression, propaganda and subversion.
According to wikipedia, the US has had 15 stripped medals due to doping. Russia has 13 since 1968 Olympics. The US is the leader in this category.
After the IOC decision not to ban Russians because they are Russians, the local MSM sewer and the turds that dwell within have reacted with outrage. Denied their auto da fe where Russians were lynched en masse, they are hissing and spitting their fury. These days in the decaying West hate is King. Hate of the poor, the weak, the defenceless, of Moslems, blacks, whites, ‘Asiatics’. Hatred of environmentalists, unionists, Mexicans, the disabled, welfare recipients, the beautiful and the ugly etc-you name it, and the Right will mount a hate campaign against that group. It’s just ‘Divide and Rule’ taken to its logical conclusion, the ‘war of all against all’, that is the inescapable logic of capitalism in its neo-feudal stage. And, boy, do these hate-mongers hate Russia and Putin. I suggest ignoring the death-throes of an Evil system, run by psychopaths, arm yourself to the teeth to, hopefully, deter their genocidal intentions, and just wait for the whole rotten edifice to collapse from its own internal filthiness.
Re: I support all of the above because they all serve to show the true face of the AngloZionist Empire, something which the Russian people greatly need.
I believe in such antiquated notions as honor, solidarity and dignity.
Bravo, Saker! I’m sure most of your readers are with you 100%.
I feel Russia just needs to postpone the NATO attack, the war, as a few years, and Russia will win by default.. Right now in the west, there is a revolution going on.
The old cultural marxist that are violently hostile to Russia are quickly being replaced by nationalists that are pro-Russia and pro-sovereignty, anti-EU/USA/NATO..
This is happneing all over the west, from USA to Germany.. In USA of course, Trump will likely become the new president, and I dont know if you guys saw the interview lately, were Trumped hesisted and resisted to the veyr end to say he would protect the baltic from a “Russian attack” and finally said he would only do it if they paid America, he has previously said that NATO should be abolished or at the very minimum changed.. All these statements are ultra-radical compared to the “nuke Russia now, Hillary crowd.”
And the same is true in W.Europe.. UKIP is exploding in popularity there, and Farage is pro-Russian, Marine Le Pen in France, Pro-Russian, SD in Sweden, not really pro-Russian but neutral, Wilders in Netherlands, Pro-Russian, Afd in Germany, Pro-Russian, Golden dawn in Greece Pro-Russian.. By 2017, Marine will Likely be the next president of France.
EU is falling to pieces, all the supranational institutions of control by the culturalmarxist are falling to pieces.. All Russia needs to wait and wait and most of the western governments will be pro-Russian in a few years.
What worries me is that NATO will push Russia into situation were Russia has no chance but to attack.. Some will say “Russia would never attack” but I dont agree, if Russia is pushed into a strategically unacceptable situation, she might be forced to attack.
For example, USA threatend to start ww3 in the 1960 rather then to allow USSR to place ballistic missiles in Cuba because it would put USA in a awful strategic situation, at that point USA felt that it was better to start ww3 at that moment, then allow themselves to be put in such a awful strategic situation..
NATO could do the same to Russia, and I almost feel – are doing it. Building missiles shields, overthrown Russia neigbors, building military bases and funding terrorist and nazists.. At some point the Russian elites might feel that if they do not launch a strike now, they will be chanceless in the future.. So it is better to start the war now, then wait for NATO to get such an advantage Russia will have no chance.
NATO will sort of be pushing Russia into a situation were she has no option but to attack if she wants to survive.
I think you may vastly overestimate the chances of Trump winning. I’d like to see it. But it will take a miracle for that to happen (at least as of July 21,2016). If I was a betting person,my money would go on Clinton. As much as I despise her. I think she has a “lock” on the election right now. Things of course may change by November. But I doubt they will.
I disagree, I can’t imagine Hillary winning over Trump, Sanders however, he was anti-establishment – like Trump, against Sanders Trump would have no advantage, and could very well have lost. Sure Sanders is a bigot with his “White people cant be poor” but that might even increase his vote from anti-white liberals and black/hispanic supremacists.
But Trump against Hillary, the most corrupt in-your-face establishment candidate ever? No, no. I believe Hillary has no chance at all. Her corruption is so in your face that she might even get arrested before November.
Trump will win guaranteed, and if not, well, then its nuclear war. Hillary will flood ukronazists with advanced weapons, complete the missile shield, and shoot down Russian jets to protect al-qaeda in Syria. As she has said she would. If you really think Trump has no chance, I would advice to start prepping.
Trump and Sanders are anti-establishment!?!
And Barack Obama is the messiah of hope and change.
Talk of ‘cultural Marxists’ is utter rubbish. It’s a favourite ‘Divide and Rule’ tactic of the Murdoch cancer and other elite Western propaganda apparatuses. The West is controlled by its owners, not a bunch of academics whose influence is virtually zero. In Australia, for example, for every ‘Cultural Marxist’, however you would like to define it, in the MSM, there are 100 hard Right, Zionazi, Atlanticist, neo-liberal, neo-conservative, racist, homophobic, misogynistic and racist thugs, who HATE Russia, China and anyone who dares oppose their idols in Thanatopolis DC.
There is an excellent article on the whole background to this story. The usual story of liars and thieves running to to the west and being embraced as “Whistleblowers”
(It is reproduced at Fortruss)
I would add that the Russian sports minister is not a fighter.
Russia needs to get some hard core representatives out there – Maria is a start, but they need more.
Well said, dear Saker. But what we, the ordinary people living in the West, can do about it? There ought to be some kind of outrage over this blatant display of Russophobia and disregard of law. What the Russians, especially living in NATO countries, can do to defend the Russian position, promote Russian values, and protect Russian communities in their host countries? We would love to hear your advice and advice from your great readers. Please, let’s put our thoughts together.
Sad and heart-broken,
Marina from Canada
Vote nationalist, conservative and separatist in your country, it will break the supranational power structures of the globalists down! Sovereignty is the solution globalism and internationalism the threat.
Save online sources that unequivocally debunks NATO propaganda and post them in every article related to Russia in western media.
Debunks the NATO lies that Russia invades and occupies Crimea and proves that it is the democratic will of the populance to be with Russia
“With two studies out of the way, both Western-based, it seems without question that the vast majority of Crimeans do not feel they were duped into voting for annexation, and that life with Russia will be better for them and their families than life with Ukraine. A year ago this week, 83% of Crimeans went to the polling stations and almost 97% expressed support for reunification with their former Soviet parent.”
One Year After Russia Annexed Crimea, Locals Prefer Moscow To Kiev
Shows that the war in Donbass is a war to crush the democratic rights of the Donbass people.
“84% of the people of Donbass support the rebels position of either autonomy inside Ukraine(42%) or full seperation from Kiev(42%”
“An opinion poll that was taken on the day of the referendum and the day before by a correspondent of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, the Washington Post, and five other media outlets found that of those people who intended to vote, 94.8% would vote for independence. ”
Shows that there are not Russian troops in Donbass and that there is no “invasion of Ukraine by Russia” that the war is infact a civil war. by Kiev trying to suppress the democratic rights of the Donbass people
“Whether or not to declare Russia a party to the conflict is the domain of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), which is the guardian of the Geneva Conventions setting down the rules of war, and considered a reference in the United Nations. Last July it declared the war to be a civil war, a “non-international armed conflict”.
Shows that Georgia started the war 2008 not Russia as every NATO troll will claim.
”Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili blamed for starting Russian war
EU investigation says Tbilisi launched indiscriminate assault on South Ossetia ”
NATO trolls always accuse everyone that disagree with the NATO narrative for being “Russian trolls” here are sources that shows that while there is no suich thing as Russian troll. NATO openly runs huge troll armies of tens of thousands online.
“35,000 Volunteers Sign Up for Ukraine’s ‘Information Army’ on First Day”
“Revealed: US spy operation that manipulates social media
Military’s ‘sock puppet’ software creates fake online identities to spread pro-American propaganda”
“”Spending over a million pounds for EU public servants to become Twitter trolls in office hours is wasteful and truly ridiculous,” he said. “It strikes me as bizarre that the EU administration is playing such an explicitly political role with a brief to target Eurosceptics – that’s code for parties like Ukip, and this is hardly neutral.”
Thanks for your response, Anonymous. Voting conservatives won’t change anything. We just got rid of the rabidly Russophobic Harper government and put all our efforts into voting them out. However, liberals under Trudeau very quickly adopted the same anti-Russia policy. Now what?
Oh, I mean real conservatives, in line with Trump or Farage or Marine Le Pen, I am afraid I know very little of the polititcal situation in Canada, but I the way you describe Harper he is probably a zionist/ neocon, meaning he will say he is a conservative but he will support the same thing as liberals(War, massimmigration, Russophobia) which is not conservative or nationalist. Thought he likely calls himself “conservative” but he is really mainstream globalist/internationalist.
Since the meaning of words like conservative can shift between countries and sometimes inside countries as well, the best is probably to vote for policies instead of broad ideologies.. The best is probably to identify a politician that holds anti-mainstream views, such as pro-Russian, anti-immigration, anti-war, anti-globalist/internationalist and vote for him or her party.
In the western Europe were I dwell, these tends to be nationalist and conservatives and separatists and in the South Europe (Italy, Spain, Greece) These can also be leftists.. Generally whoever is called “Far left” or “Far right” or “Extreme left” or “Extreme right” by NATO media is the good guys in my humble opinion.
What political parties exist in Canada I dont know, in W.Europe every country has such an conservative/nationalist opposition party, which today are often the largest parties as well.. Dont you have French separatists or such in Canada? A separatist is almost always a good person in my experience.
Beyond that, I suggest just venting some frustration from time to time by posting sources as I mention on articles regarding Russia in NATO media, atleast for me – this is therapeutical, it gives me a sense of fighting back and not being useless.
And since the comment contains sources that unequivocally debunks the specific NATO propaganda the article mentions, there is not even any need to return and engage in a drawn out and tiring arguments with NATO trolls, as the sources that debunk their lies are already there and all readers who follow can click on the sources and educate themselves…
It is perhaps not much against the enormous billion upon billion dollar NATO propaganda machine, but sometimes it feels good to at least poke the NATO trolls in the eye and educate some neutral people at the same time, and as the sources are saved and it just takes a moment to copy them, it is almost zero effort. :)
Marina “from Canada” Your absolutely right my dear and as for “what can we do” is but to hold our new governments treasonous feet to the fire, on the internet here and by whatever medium possible, just as your already doing already here.
Raymond.. from Canada
Thanks for the words of support, Raymond. It’s such a relief to know we are not alone in our adopted country to stand against its dangerous warmongering policies. As new Canadians, we care deeply about Canada and great people of this beautiful country. We don’t want Canada to be on the wrong side of history.
As a Canadian immigrant and refugee from Soviet occupied East Germany at age 7, born to a single German Mother and fathered by an American solder in Bavaria, I can tell you that some of the most patriotic Canadians that I personally know come here as immigrants from other far away places and countries, ever since the last world war. Just continue to believe that we will win and that eventually we will beat all these treasonous US traitors here into the ground and form a united country again totally sovereign and independent of US hegemony, with Russia as our guide and inspiration I pray.
there’s one way to fight them is fighting the ukronazi diaspora in Canada, whenever they have a rally, have a counter rally. don’t know if russians and anitmaidanoutes ukrainians overwhelm maidanoute ukronoazis in number though. Andrei pallista in Torronta is definitely fighting them o, social networks
Talking of which!!! (sorry sweetheart DO tell people what this says -i’m quite quite serious Mr.Saker I live in the city The Titanic sailed from-!) “”Was a Dangerous Eurotunnel “Pensioned Off” (and if so by whom)?” (Update: British Govt. touts rail service)” http://gkhales.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/was-dangerous-eurotunnel-pensioned-off.html?spref=tw #MarkCarney #BankofEngland
Marina, Canada is controlled by its Israel First Lobby, before whom EVERY Canadian PM must grovel. And second in influence, among ethnic groups, are the Ukronazis who fled to Canada after WW2m and before whom Trudeau also abases himself. Surely (if you’ll forgive me) you were no so naive as to expect Trudeau would be other than another Establishment functionary, a Canadian Obama?
hi, no, voting nationalists would just lead to relapses to times we already saw as dark ages. In my opinion only true left wing parties are to opt for. Why? In germany DieLinke former PDS has been ever since voted for the Nato and realliating europes ties to russia. It’s not a short viewed proposal of parties that just attracting dissapointed, scared and mostly former unpolitical voters from the lame duck parties recognized for subservancy to the empire. Unfortunately it’s these parties that are unequally more demanding more neocon ” solutions” to seek hail from. What i am missing is a sovereign european left wing open for mutual and equal development and on top of it and alternative form of trade and economy rejecting the common agressive and exploiting policies we kept for centuries. The current problems are just the result of our (the west) single minded arrogance.
I agree. A true left is the only next logical step. Otherwise we’re stuck in this capitalist loop (and the loops are getting smaller and smaller).
Since the left never really existed in any meaningful way in the USA (people calling Hillary and Rachel Maddow types leftists is beyond laughable), I think it is up to Europe to disentangle itself from the obviously deluded or purposefully evil American establishment and think of their future.
I am simply amazed at how Wagenknecht and those similar to her sound so rational yet are perceived as extreme.
The ironic thing is Hillary started out as a Goldwater conservative. And then “supposedly” ,must have had a “Paul on the road to Damascus” conversion to Liberalism. I suspect it was more,”I can advance myself better as a Democrat” conversion instead. While Rachel Maddow ,as well as many others in the media in the US (maybe the World) is gay. And the “gay rights” agenda colors her position on everything. Her visceral hatred of Putin and Russia is heavily influenced by her being gay.And she,(more than likely) part of the 1% herself,see’s her gay agenda dependent on the “progressive” Liberal (anti-wealthy) bloc.Its amazing how the working class and poor in the US.Allow rich politicos and media figures,trick them that they are “one of them” and “support them”. At least Trump is open that he is a billionaire. And doesn’t try to act the phony “man of the people”. Like Hillary with her saying that ,”I share your pain” to the poor. While dressed in $12,000 outfit’s,makings millions of dollars with speeches to bankers,and her daughter living in a $10 million dollar townhouse.
a typo its DieLinke voted for the Nato exit my bad..
Marina — one thing that I’ve been doing is replying to people in news websites’ comments sections. You are not alone. I’ve been noticing that more and more North Americans are realizing the utter BS that our legacy media is spewing when it comes to Russia and China. Maybe you won’t change the mind of the person you’re replying to, but other persons who are reading your comments will get exposed to these ideas and they may start to change their thinking. In any case, don’t despair! Emmanuel Todd wrote about the end of the Soviet Empire in 1976, I think. Then in 2002, he wrote another book, about the fall of the American Empire. I believe we’re living through that stage now. It goes slowly at first, then suddenly, events accelerate. I have a feeling that the events have been accelerating for the past few months. A parallel financial system is being put in place; next time “we” have a financial crisis, the rest of the planet could well decide to cast off and away.
Thank you for your kind words of encouragements, Christian. I completely agree with you. More so, I have been fighting this informational war for over two years now, ever since the disgusting conflict in Ukraine, supported and financed by the West, has shattered my heart into a million pieces. To my embarrassment, I hadn’t heard of Emmanuel Todd, I will seek his books out. Thanks for the tip. All best.
Marina, thanks for sharing your heartfelt thoughts! As a fellow Canadian, I am touched by them!
I sincerely believe Canada has gone to Russia’s side:
1) Because NATO has recently bluntly revealed that the only purpose we serve is as a NATO-occupied staging ground for war with Russia. (I can put together evidence for this, but I’m a bit exhausted with it right now). This new govt knows this.
2) Because we have given ourselves no other choice, after the disastrously, stupid involvement in the coup in Ukraine. This new govt is aware of this, while the previous one seemed not to be (and I didn’t clue in until recently either!! Too much Kool-Aid in Canada!!!) With what we did in Ukraine, we have left Russia with no choice but to invade and occupy us. (Did I mention the overdose of Kool-Aid??) Therefore, under this new govt, we are now the most loyal servant of Putin’s Russia.
(Rule #1 when you live between THE two superpowers on Earth: Your nation exists solely because your neighbours permit it to exist)
Eric Zuesse, the fantastic anti-war advocate and investigative historian, recommended that Canadians contact FM Stephane Dion with concerns. Dion has a PhD in Political Science. He gets it, whatever it is politically. So we can always write to him directly with concerns.
And from the depth of my genuinely God-fearing heart, I want some Canadian special services member to kill Victoria Nuland.
The play isn’t “we invade Ukraine, Russia takes Ukraine back militarily”. The play is “we invade Ukraine, Russia invades Canada, and then the negotiations begin.”

Seriously man, no offense intended, but I think you should seek some psychological and spiritual help with your rage and existential dilemma because frankly you sound mentally unbalanced.
Sincerely yours..Raymond from Canada.
RayB, S113 is either (in my opinion) certifiably insane (‘Canada has gone to Russia’s side’??!!), or a very crude disinformationist who thinks people here are total eejits. Or both, of course.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts, S113. I wish I could share your enthusiasm about Canada going to Russia’s side. I just can’t see any facts supporting such affirmation. So far Canada is at the forefront of Russia-bashers with all its blasting and war-mongering rhetoric. Just this month Canada agreed to send some 450 troops to Latvia to boost NATO presence at Russia’s doorstep. Right after the NATO summit, Trudeau went straight to Kiev to reassure Canada’s support for the fascist regime. Both Dion and Trudeau have completely abandoned their election promises to re-engage with Russia. Just like Eric Zeusse whom I immensely respect, recommended, The Russian Congress of Canada sent many letters to both Trudeau and Dion. A couple of weeks ago we received a letter from Dion’s office where in no uncertain term we’re told that Canada as a NATO member, stands firm in support for Ukraine against Russia’s aggressive actions.
It’s not enthusiasm, Marina, I swear, it’s not emotional. Our country has really backed itself into a corner, with the coup in Ukraine. And who will save us? Our NATO allies who share the European continent with Russia?? The US, who benefits most if Canada turns into another Libya? Our only ally is Putin. (Thank God for him – we should erect a statue of him in Ottawa!) Trudeau’s govt has exactly zero options, other than total cooperation with Putin’s Russia.
Congratulations to the Russian Congress! Way to be persistent, like the Ukronazis! You set a good example for all of us.
About Latvia, I am aware of what the govt is providing because I looked into it so I could send an angry letter. But when I saw all the details, to me, this looked like a peacekeeping mission from the old days (like a few decades ago). That was just my view on it. So I didnt send a complaint because I think that Canada is going there as a stabiliser.
It is difficult for Canada when the US goes into Cold War mode. The more crazy the US gets, the more the people want their govts to rightfully confront them. But the more crazy the US gets, the more cautious “official Canada” tends to be in response, not wanting to draw any fire in their direction. Practical, in one view, cowardly in another.
And I might add to my last comment about questioning your mental stability, I don’t believe that your comments about “killing Victoria Nuland” are apt and representative of the sentiments of most Canadians in my personal opinion.
Furthermore, I believe it’s a crime and a felony to advocate or call for anyone’s death or “killing” on the internet according to US Federal laws, and punishable by life imprisonment, my dear Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau’s loving friend and apologist here named and tagged as 113.
Care to make any more comments, remarks or excuses on this site on behalf of your treasonous war mongering Canadian Liberal party friends, just so as to further incriminate yourself in their genocidal foreign policies?
Maybe so but please lay off the moralizing , do you not feel the death sentance is appropriate for a mass murderer ? Do we really need a show trial first ? Is there any doubt about her guilt? What do you feel is the appropriate reward for the whole crew of mass murderers guilty of the ultimate war crime?
How shall justice be served?
My apologies, I was unclear: my statement about Ms. Nuland was purely intended to reveal my personal feelings, and not a specific call to action of any kind. (It was about me, not her). Agreed, the kind of comment can be misconstrued, and is not helpful, so I personally will refrain from doing so again in future.
in the UK some joker, frustrated at his flight delays

he was joking, but….
he got six months for a facebook message.
And we are certainly fortunate to have people like Ray, who take such a strong, non-deceptive stance towards the issuing threats on the Internet. And in places like this Vineyard. And this thread. So thanks, Ray, for showing us the way with integrity!
Re: ” please lay off the moralizing, do you not feel the death sentance is appropriate for a mass murderer ? Do we really need a show trial first ? Is there any doubt about her guilt? ”
Actually yes and I’m against the death sentence under any circumstances. Killing people that kill people that are in your custody and no longer pose a threat to society, I find not only to be spiritually an immoral act but a deprived and repugnant one at that.
After Jesus was said to have proclaimed “let whomever is without sin pick up the first stone” did he himself then pick up the first stone? Two thousand years of civilization later and how far have we progressed?
So you alone would play judge and executioner here. What then makes you any different than either all the fanatical fascist terrorist that are running around the world butchering people in Gods name or the cold blooded sociopaths, such as Nuland that commit genocide against whole nations and would push the entire planet to the edge of a nuclear holocaust in their pursuit of their own greed and power?
You sound like the same “Anonymous anti Putin” guy here that I’ve encounter on this site before, who’s attacking people and still pushing his own twisted version of reality, are you?
Hey S113, you must learn from the enemy dude. You must say things like ‘you’re against the death sentence under any circumstances – its deprived and repugnant, etc, etc’. That way you can be seen to have integrity, and not ‘sound mentally unbalanced’ and needing ‘psychological and spiritual help’.
Meanwhile, when the sun sets, you send in drones to wipe those you don’t like out. You can rendition, torture then disappear them, civilian casualties you call collateral damage, you can send in your special forces to kill whoever you want, etc, etc. Its all about “the tactics” dude.
Integrity is a highly over-rated Western concept which means ‘speaking with forked tongue’.
Not sure of exactly what your trying to say here, but be clear I’m totally for holding all those responsible for war crimes fully accountable as well as for challenging their hypocrisy. But as for “integrity”, I would not stoop, as you suggest, down to the same level and same standards of the barbaric behavior that they display. Otherwise I’d indeed be speaking with a “forked tongue”.
My apologies Ray, I was not picking on you, I was trying to pick on the West only. I should have written my comment clearer. Yes, the good old West is the biggest supporter of abolishing the death penalty, yet what they do behind the scenes is another matter altogether.
S113, Canada is 110% on-board with the USA in Ukraine, as the result of subservience to the Empire and to its eminence gris in Tel Aviv, and to the Ukrainian Nazi regime as a result of the Ukrainian influence in Canada. Did you miss Trudeau, the Canadian Obama, groveling to the Ukronazi regime after the Russophobic hate-fest in Warsaw?
one thing constantly missing from discussions, mostly,
is when people say USA, canada, germany et al, are
doing this or that henious thing everybody seems to
link ‘it’ to every american, geman etc whereas, of
course, when you think about it is nothing of the sort.
IT IS ALWAYS THE POWERS THAT BE.
ordinary people go to blogs like this for more objective
news and to vent their frustrations.
keyboard warriors unite! how?
Please don’t be sad or heartbroken. I saw somewhere the slogan “pain is weakness leaving the body” and there is some truth to that. Russia *needs* these slaps! I bet you that many athletes will go to Rio and that Russian singers will participate in the next Eurovision. What we, Russians abroad, can do is try to be a bridge between our people and the many people in the West who are *not* our enemies and who often hate their ruling classes no less than we do. At the end of the day, double standards and hypocrisy cannot be confined just “for Russians”. They also affect Americans, Germans, French, and millions of other people in the West to whom we must reach out and with whom we need to work together to bring down the Empire. From the latter we should expect no decency, no honor and, above all, no mercy. They will use every dirty trick in the book, and then some more, against us and against their own people. So by creating a people-to-people community which completely bypasses “their” media and “their” so-called “elites” we can provide a crucial counter-venom to their plans. But most importantly, don’t be sad – but rejoice! After 300 years of colonization by the West Russia is slowly but surely liberating herself. That is a cause to rejoice, even if on a daily basis we are appalled by the infinite ugliness of it all.
Dear Saker, we can always rely on your words of wisdom and kindness. It was such an honour helping you fight this unfair war with overwhelmingly more powerful opponents. You and many other brave souls out there showed us dignity to confront them with courage and knowledge. I don’t know where you keep drawing your strength and inspiration to fight this unequal struggle while so many of us have nearly broken down. God bless you, my friend!
little by little the wests’ ”rats” are becoming more and more obvious
and venal to even the average joe and joe-ess.
witness the rise and rise of anti eastablishment movements/parties
all across europe and don’t forget trump.
things are moving in only one direction in my opinion.
the more ‘they’ lie, cheat and crack down on the plebs,
the more they expose themselves for what they are.
it would seem inevitable that things will come to a crisis,
if they don’t invent their own crisis first, then all bets
are off, especially for them.
One person’s visionary is another’s wishful thinker. I have to be careful not to over internalize my position in an empire in decline. As I believe Anais Nin said (paraphrasing) “An empire in decline has no need for visionaries.”
Cast my vote for the Saker as visionary. Oh, what the heck. Throw Putin in that category too. :-)
Yes it is frustrating is it not, watching these yapping officials working so hard against Russia in the hope of a pat on the head or something better. As a Brit I am completely used to political dishonesty. Just yesterday we had the unedifying words of Boris Johnson saying “Assad must go” – yap yap. Among many others barking the same words for their masters. Yap yap yap yap yap. On and on.
I believe the western populations would enjoy something new and original: I agree that Russia should consider a parallel and successful alternative. It need not interfere with the Russian President Vladimir Putins’ long game for a cooperating multipolar world. It would be a breath of fresh air. Or does it have to be war? With the dregs hiding underground ready to emerge and begin the same cycle over again.
Vote UKIP, BNP or LibertyGB and the “Assad must go” talk will be replaced with “Assad must stay”
I would like to know what does say the Russian press.
It would be good to select some Russian articles and translate into English and post on this blog.
It seems to me that the Russian press just quote UKUSA media even without a comment.
i second that idea and thank the translators who do
lots of unpaid work for the benefit of us monolinguists
I think the idea of “firing” the Olympics before any more Russian athletes get “fired” makes sense.
Suppose you received an invitation to a party, and it included your partner, and then the party giver didn’t like the looks of your partner, and said, you cannot bring that person.
Would you go to the party anyhow?
Do you love your partner? Would you be so disloyal?
In a way, Olympic boycotts are silly. But now that the Olympics have become a tool in hybrid war, all potential participants have to view them through this lens and engage in high-level game strategy.
And what of sending a message of disapproval, too, to Brazil’s new junta:
You are totally antidemocratic, this whole thing is a hypocritical.
It is not “sports business as usual,” we are walking away from this political charade, we can walk away from chintzy medals that we do not need, and apologies to the Brazilian people.
Too bad your so-called govt just screwed up the “international” Olympics for you by dumping your democratically elected president.
Well said Saker. So often I wonder what, exactly, is Russia thinking as she remains open to dialog and constructive engagement despite every insult.
As you say it is “a new kind of war, one which is 80% informational, 15% economic and 5% military”. Yet there is also a spiritual undercurrent. The West is oblivious to this fact and even holds it in contempt. Russia seems to be more aware.
Romans 12:17-20 Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Proverbs 25:22b adds, “and the LORD will reward you.
There is wisdom in what Putin does. Just as David resisted temptations to get even with Saul, Putin exercises great self control. This is not a sign of weakness.
Ah yes, the humane ‘forgive them all’ sentiment always has merit. Therefor, to be fair, the opposing inhumane ‘kill them all’ sentiment has equal merit. Both are therefore equally extreme, and a practical solution can only be found somewhere between those 2 extremes.
I agree with you wholeheartedly Saker.
This is what the vast majority of people on the Russian internet are saying too.
Hi Saker, I see your frustration and feel your disgust. Every day I read multiple sites in which the Empires hypocrisy is on full display. You can not even imagine my disgust with my country, the Evil Empire. However, the more trash, lies and propoganda that i hear about Russia the more i learn about the real Russia, and the more i love it, its people and its President. As i said before i proudly fly the Russian flag on my home, have lost friends, and guests that come are uncomfortable but i care not. Now it is my turn to imagine and leave behind the real world. I would go to Russia and live the rest of my life if my wife would go and i had the resources. But that will not happen so i will love Russia from here and always know that no matter what my corrupt politicians do or say they will never turn me against my Russia. Never.
Yes I just commented somewhere that the original Olympics should be recreated by all freedom loving countries starting with Russia and China and all in between… attendance by application… ….or some such… meanwhile yes agree all Russia should nto send anyone… let China take it all… and no one in the bloody literally Western world get even bronze…
@ Bente Petersen
Indeed, restoring the real (amateur only) only Olympics would be a great move: (1) it would destroy the legitimacy of the current money-money circus; (2) enhance its appeal for most countries outside Natoland to join; (3) restore the true Olympic spirit.
That would be win/win/win to all except the power elites and their mass media stooges.
I agree with the Saker then I wonder is Russia entitled to pay some fee in order to be invited to the US or some other event? For in that case Russia should stop doing it. What it hurts the most the these hypocrites is if their own pockets get hit by their own stupidity ie. the ongoing economical sanctions on Russia.
All right piece as far as wishful thinking goes, but no further. The Russian public may be disgusted at the hypocrisy, as well they should, and even many of the oligarchs and the rest of the ruling class may be disgusted too, but the effect of the Russian masses on Russia’s policy is very small, and the oligarchs and ruling class have a tendency to put self-interest first, and patriotism on the back seat, to be used only as a rhetorical instrument when needed. Therefore, a dispassionate look at the situation suggests Russia will keep on receiving the slaps, muttering a few sentences about “our partners,” and turning the other cheek in preparation for the next slap, in a painful-to-see ritual of gradual capitulation. Maybe Putin is a bit different (not even sure of that anymore) but certainly Putin does not call the important shots in Russia.
My sceptical self accords with your view of a ‘Western’ world piling more and more affronts on Russia with the clear intent of causing mass humiliation and, potentially, hostility towards Mr. Putin’s vision of a free Russia.
There are many tools in the box of the Empire to be used against those who defy its capitalist/fascist order and Russia is No.1 in the firing line; consequently this process will go on and on indefinitely until someone in Mr. Putin’s shoes (it may even be himself) say “enough is enough” and does something to break this unending chain of slurs on the Russian nation and stifling of its spirit.
… And bring a proud smile to Marina’s face.
“truly cosmic level of hypocrisy and double-standard”
“I support all of the above because they all serve to show the true face of the AngloZionist Empire, something which the Russian people greatly need.”
This is one of those times when I really, really, really want to break the rules of this forum and type it all in Capitals…but this is brilliant!!!. Russia needs to know the true face of the enemy. All these lying, psychopathic turds that are floating in its own sewage for everyone to see and smell, and be disgusted. Most importantly, to know exactly what to expect from this self-digesting drizzle.
I’m also sure that the real Russian leadership new it all along but pretended that it didn’t stink partly because Russians are very polite, and partly because they simply wanted to buy more time.
boris johnson, newly appointed conservative foreign minister….
seemed like a reasonable chap and with a sense of humour….
just announced that…….
Assad must go !
HE NEVER GAVE THE IMPRESSION OF THAT THINKING
BEFORE.. i wonder what they’ve got on him.
Boris obviously is a fraud!!!
They certainly are _not_ laughing at RT anymore. As much as we critique RT (and with good reason sometimes), who did I turn to during the recent events in Turkey? With Ruptly, I know that RT people are all over the world, even using individuals with video cameras who email in the goods. Bravo, Russia.
I love this essay and particularly love paragraph #3. Yes, we support these things. In the end, they’re good for Russia and the planet, and btw, who cares about the Olympics? I’d also just as soon watch a Russian Olympics! I always say you are hitting your stride as an essayist but thank you for this one, well done.
nice one…. I think the same… it’s a shame, the Olympic Games will loose a lot without the russians, but it’s for a greater cause…
Good Rant and I agree.
I suggest that Russia do two things:
First, start a competitor to the Olympics. Invite everyone in the world to come, and offer large cash prizes to the winners. When the Olympic gold medalists realize that they are not the best in the world, that some athletes in the Eurasian Games are objectively better (and richer), they will not be happy. Will the Olympics survive if only the second-rate athletes participate?
Second, publicize all over the world a new Olympic logo — with four rings.
Eventually, the Olympics will fade away.
Washington Is Politicizing The Olympics Again
Paul Craig Roberts
“…the real point of Washington’s campaign against Russia. The “doping scandal” is part of Washington’s ongoing effort to isolate Russia and to build opposition to Putin inside Russia.
There is a minority known as “Atlanticist Integrationists” inside the Russian government and in the business sector that believes that it is more important for Russia to be integrated into the West than to be sovereign. This minority of Russians is willing to trade off Russian independence for Western acceptance. Essentially they are traitors whom Putin tolerates.
With the ban on Russia’s participation in the Olympics, Washington is attempting to strengthen this opposition to Putin. Now the opposition can say: “Putin’s intransigence has kept Russia out of the Olympics. Putin has isolated Russia. We must cooperate (a euphemism for giving in) with the West or become an outcast.”
This is Washington’s game. The Olympic ban is directed at undermining Putin among Russians. “He kept us out of the Olympics!”
“Perhaps Russia and China should organize the Eurasian Olympics and leave the Western Olympics.”
Your wishful thinking is also mine, you’re not alone with that surely. The words from the Bible which say that if you got a slap in your face, turn on the other it might be valuable for one person, but for a president who represents a country like Russia is not. Why should he let his country being humiliated ? Probably it is too early to criticize, maybe we shall have to wait for next week when the fate of the whole Russian team will be decided. Maybe Russia will get another slap – or a half one (by accepting some of them) by splitting the team. If Russia announces to leave the competition before the next week decision, will be nasty, if announces to leave after (being a half snap) will be nasty too. The first is less “face looser”, even prouder. Most probably Russia will chose the second variant, waiting for the decision next week. Yes or No ?
I think Russia will wait for the decision by the IOC. Russia does not want to pervert the Olympic games for political aims. Hence, as a matter or principle, it cannot and won’t boycott the games unless banned from participation.
However, if Russia gets banned, a different principle applies – the rule that only countries are allowed to send their best athletes to compete at the games. If a country gets banned, its athletes cannot participate because their national qualification for the games would be void. Following the rules of the Olympic charter, it appears impossible that athletes compete under any other than their own qualifying country’s flag.
Therefore, I guess that if Russia gets banned none of its Olympic team will participate.
I hesitate to disagree with Saker, because the rant is well-founded, and I myself have been thinking I do not want to watch any of the Olympic events this time around, because of such humiliating and unjustified persecution.
Yet, even while I was reading the well chosen arguments that point to Russia’s choosing a different course for these Olympics in particular, another famous Olympics was intruding itself on my memory.
As a student, I saw a rivetting film in black and white that was made to ‘celebrate’ Germany’s ascendancy under the Nazis, with Hitler himself appearing to cheer on German athletes at a time when the humiliated and despised ones were the black athletes from the United States. There is no more shining moment at that darkest of historic times than the individual performance of Jesse Owens – not for this country as it was then, but for his own triumph for his people against a corrupt ideal, that of racial superiority.
I wonder, does not the struggle against a seemingly implacable foe and the ideology that enemy represents, call the light of athletic challenge to shine in immortal fashion most of all when those individuals who are ready and willing to face that humiliation, the hypocritical condemnation of lesser beings, do so? And in doing so, don’t they become icons?
If any Russian athletes survive the travesty of these judgments and are able to compete, I do hope they will. And I hope someone will be there to make a truthful film for all young people to remember.
sorry, if you mean that letting the Russian athletes go to Olympics and win medals could do anything against the ideology of the West you are wrong.
Soviet Union tried and tried the same for decades and in vain, as everybody in the West said “so many are doped, the victories may be undeserved.” The only athletes from SU who gained real and undoubted fame in the West, those times, were the Ice Skaters and the Dancers… remember?
Soviet Union and GDR, during these times, should have built up their East Bloc Olympics, the spartakiades, to become worldwide events, instead of giving any trust or importance to Western Olympics where their performances were looked at with constant doubt and malicious envy.
Stop trying to show off the West, Russia – you cant show off to someone who paints it all black.
Thank you for all the tireless work that you are doing to avert world war three, bring about peace and harmony in a world wrought with war and unnecessary conflicts due to the pure insanity and greed of a minority of elites that are playing god for what must be at the behest of a devil.
Your truly a man after my own heart, who’s willing to just throw down the gantlet, and be damned what punishment one may have to endure at the price of preserving one’s own dignity and integrity both as an individual and as an honorable nation within the world community. The US empire and it’s planetary hegemony, as well as all of it’s quisling Western and EU states are all surely eventually destined to fall face down prone on their own sword of economic bankruptcy. spiritual decay and utter moral hypocrisy.
May it be with Gods Speed and His Grace for the sake of all of humanity before it’s to late.
Yours Raymond … from the “True North” of Canada, most of who’s people are still resisting the US’s empires “manifest destiny” of total colonization of all of the Northern (as well as the Southern) hemispheres of the entire continents this side west of the Atlantic and east of the Pacific oceans.
I dunno are you white or “Red Indian”? Dont matter to me. Greetings with all my heart to the Native American inhabited areas of North Canada. I got an old friend who lives in the most outward North-East of Canada, she studied the Native Americans and learned lots of good things from them. In fact, nowadays everyone who dislikes this Plastic and Pokemon-Go age into which “globalism” threw us, is something like a Native American to “those above” and gets harassed this or that way. Well, let them harass us – until Nature starts punishing THEM. Then we´ll have a good last laugh.
You are wishing for sanity to prevail in American politics, business and on the American street, Saker. Not gonna happen. Not when the entire elite establishment, with the exception of Donald Trump, wants to crush Russia, using lies, guns and money, including a scorched earth nuclear war they can say they won, addressing their words to the 7 billion tombstones that would be erected if anyone were left to carve them. Look, even as you type, the establishment has been employing a thousand trained monkeys in all areas of media to absolutely convince the American people, from hard core conservatives to raving liberals, that Putin is an immoral, evil aggressor intent on world hegemony and crushing the freedom-loving United States. All the tensions in the world, on Russia’s borders, and within the hapless war-torn countries victimized by NATO aggression are HIS fault, his PERSONAL fault, for which there is no remedy but to cast out Russia from the realm of civilised nations and to destabilize and replace its government as soon as practicable, by means of nuclear force if necessary. When Donald Trump makes rational statements like, it is not smart to arm Ukraine with offensive weapons and encourage them to re-kindle their conflict with the ethnic Russians in Donbass, he would not sell arms to Ukraine, he would end the war in Syria and cooperate with Russia on actual real world terrorism, he would not start World War III because Latvia or Lithuania gets into some senseless snit with Russia tracing back centuries over who controls the sardine industry in the Baltic, he would make deals (agreements, treaties, call them whatever) rather than war with Russia, and for such reasonable remarks he is called a Putin-apologist and a threat to America’s future. Great weighty tomes of manufactured bull shit are published by Jeffrey Goldberg in the Atlantic condemning Russia’s ruthless “hegemony” and lamenting America’s victimhood… and the whole gamut of nonsense mentioned by Saker is itemized as a list of Western grievances against Russia whose time is ripe for remediation. The three most important consecutive headlines on the (hate to use the word, but if the shoe fits) Anglo-Zionist Huffington Post today entered directly below Mr. Trump’s full page portrait are:
“IT’S OFFICIAL: Clinton Is Running Against Vladimir Putin”
“Trump Won’t Promise To Back NATO Allies Against Russian Invasion” and
“Donald’s Comments Set Off NATO Freakout”
These warmongers desperately do not want Trump to win, because he will attempt to negotiate some form of sane reproachment with Russia. He does not want a nuclear war which will see all of the magnificent edifices he has raised in honor of his own name to be rendered into green glass and sand. (Yeah, he has an ego, so what if it works in favor of preserving the human race? Like, Hillary does not have an even bigger ego?) The editorials against him are as widespread, biased and one-sided as everything said against Putin. Trump seems to be the second most demonized man in the media, after Putin. That’s enough said to make the point, except one last thing: I don’t believe that Washington will allow Russia to retract within itself as Saker wishes, like some hermit kingdom, to preserve its very existence. After Obama leaves the scene, Hillary will come knocking on Russia’s doors with all the subtlety of a SWAT team as soon as she can.
dont think Trump will be able to change anything. those who pull the military and MNC strings will remain the same no matter who is on stage giving speeches to the Sheeple! perhaps he has only been allowed to become the Republican candidate to get beaten at elections and to get all the slaps in the face before, which they cant directly deliver to putin. A billionaire scapegoat.
Wasn’t a campaign testimonial for Trump. In fact, I don’t think he can win. TPTB wouldn’t allow it. Just making the point that anyone who wants to deal with Russia with sanity and fairness gets demonized. The hatred and the will to power by the American elites runs too deep even for a billionaire to overcome. As you say, even if he were elected he would be rendered as ineffective as Obama by the Deep State.
“Clinton is running against Vladimir Putin” would result in V. V. Putin winning about 3:1.
Goldberg is the consummate example of the Judaic Superman, the Supreme Beings in the Universe, and these creatures are nothing if not utterly deranged by hatred. If it wasn’t Putin, it would be China and Xi (and is, of course). Anything that gets in the ways of the total ‘Full Spectrum Dominance’ of the USA that the Jewish elites now control to an extent unknown in history. US global dominance means Jewish global dominance, a situation predicted in more than one Judaic tract.
Needless to say, not all Jews think like this, but the elites CERTAINLY do, and make little secret of it, other than to ritually deny it and smear as ‘antisemites’ any who dare notice. The hatred of creatures like Goldberg is easy enough to explain. Judaism is a cult founded in narcissistic self-worship, the Jewish ‘God’ being, in reality, the Jews themselves. It also is based on fear and hatred of non-Jews, antagonism towards them, and not a universal world of morality as in Christianity (Talmudic Jews revile Jesus who they have in Hell, up to his neck in boiling faeces)but a world of one morality for the Jews, and another, that allows exploitation like usury, and uncondemned violence, even murder, even for children, for the goyim. These attitudes, while not adhered to by all Jews, are certainly at work among the Israeli ruling elite and the fundamentalist orthodox and ultra-orthodox. Indeed disputes concerning these ideologies are a lively source of contention inside Israel (although the chauvinist and hostile tendencies are slowly becoming more and more dominant)but outside Israel no goy dare notice or comment, lest they be subject to the usual tsunami of abuse as an ‘antisemite’. And it is these habits among Jews, often driven principally by elites, that have been the cause of much of the antagonism between Jews and non-Jews throughout history.
This Judaic chauvinism and hostility is, in the current era, exacerbated by the creation of Israel, which has become a fascist, racist, terror state, destabilising its region, and spreading its poison far and wide, a bolt-hole for Jewish criminals escaping justice, and a global centre for various criminal activities such as drug trafficking, sex trafficking, pornography, blood diamond trafficking, human organ trafficking, arms trafficking and surveillance and repression technologies and financial crime, such as the gigantic pay-day lending, on-line gambling and ‘binary options’ extractions from the goyim. The latter has actually caused a scandal inside Israel (but, typically, dare not be mentioned in the Western MSM sewer)to which the Israeli regime has, unsurprisingly, acted only in banning the practise against Israelis-the goyim remain, as ever, marks.
Israeli chauvinism and hostility is of course, also worsened by the recent experience of the Nazi Judeocide and the typical Western colonists’ hatred of the indigenous who must be extirpated so that the Herrenvolk can obtain their God-ordained lebensraum. And the subsequent hatred of any who dare support their Palestinian victims, which is driving a weave of repression in the West targeting the BDS and other movements, that is eviscerating Western ‘Freedom of Opinion’. One can be certain that unless someone has the guts to pull Israel into line, while guaranteeing its existence on the 1947 borders with the Palestinian Right of Return observed, that Israel will dig its own grave, and that of much of the region, and who knows how much else of the planet.
This is definitely not an easy decision:
1) participate at the Olympics with a neutral flag. Apparently, this will be the case for at least Darya Klishina. This is weird especially if an athlete wins a medal. He has a neutral flag but everyone knows his nationality anyway. This already happened in 1992 also for political reasons but I’m not sure of what was the perceived outcome. A ceremony can be done at home, in Russia.
2) participate at the Olympics with the Russian flag, at the risk of being disqualified. This will make the biggest noise just before and after the competitions, but not during them. This will be very frustrating for the Russian people.
3) withdraw from the Olympics. This is the best decision on an ethical point of view but quite bad for the athletes (after all, they trained a lot just to participate).
If 2 or 3 are the roads taken, I’d suggest Russia would held parallel games, transmitted live (ie. on RT) and occurring at the same time from Sochi or so. Then you can compare the timings (at least for competitions using that). And there would be a virtual online result.
Ah well, who cares about those silly games anyway. Look at the soccer results. Porgugal won, will that make their live easier within the EU? No.
If Russia bows out of the Rio Olympics the Western media will be like this:
“See they had something to hide all along, that’s why they’ve pulled out completely.”
And because common sense is so god damn rare in the West its considered a superhero power everyone will nod and agree to that logic.
Don’t like the Olympics, the sanctions, ‘hybrid war’ etc etc, then don’t cooperate with your American friends in Syria or anywhere, No? – Live in the present like the Jewish/Israeli faith – there is no fanciful future, your paradise is now, live it.
I am very fan of your analyse. They always learn me much, but this time you push strong towards Eurasia (I refer to Orwell). The Empire will soon be renamed Oceania. I think we will all loose a lot in this historical shift. Our planet will be divided in 3 zone of equal importance, to maximise competition to establish colony in our solar system and then beyond. It is not a pleasant thougt.
I would agree with you Saker, that any athlete with a tiny skerrick of honour, pride, self-respect and decency who is also part of the Russian team, would refuse to take part, making a public statement of support for the abused innocent athletes, but also for doing and supporting that which is in accord with integrity.
But for the same reasons, so would if I were an American athlete in these games.
I wouldn’t want to taint myself by giving implicit support to this rabid, rampant, immoral and probably illegal, attack on Russia via its sportsmen and women. But also, I wouldn’t want to win a Gold, and always have it tainted by the thought “Yes, but you probably wouldn’t have won it if your government hadn’t pulled poisoned strings to remove your major competitor” If I tried, even as I ran, or jumped, or whatever, I’d be held back by the though “what’s the point?”
They haven’t only ruined this Olympiad for Russia. They’ve ruined for themselves. And they just can’t see it.
I’m it total agreement with that. I’ve been advocating almost that exact policy for awhile now.Creating parallel (but free from Western control) organizations will over time attract many other nations to “stand-up” as well,beside Russia.Its not an overnight success.But just as you said about RT.Overtime, it will be successful.
@ Uncle Bob
Indeed, this theme has been your baby for a while but the Saker’s headlines take precedence and he spiced it with the masochistic slant that Russia-bashing is good because all the world can see the Empire’s hypocrisy.
But, can the world actually see it? No, not the people whose news and views are mediated through the global propaganda machine controlled by the Azion empire. On the contrary, it will re-inforce pre-existent prejudices and confirm that Russia is an international pariah, besides being a message to the Russian people that their admission to the “international community” of civilized nations starts with the overthrow of their government.
Amazing enough they are not doing the same to Cuba and North Korea, but they are small fish to fry.
There is a tendency within the the Eastern Slavonic civilization which leans towards naivety & complacency, it drives me nuts, as a UK born Serb who thinks & acts Anglo but whose heart & soul is in Serbia, with the Serbian Orthodox Church, Russophile etc. etc. So I go along with The Saker’s sentiments here because during the 90s, those of us in the so-called Serbian ‘diaspora’ had to painfully watch the Serbian government make the same mistakes again & again in their dealings with the West in the midst of one of the most serious crisis situations in Serbian history, all because these idiots though that in the end, they could befriend the US, UK, Germany, France etc. & become allies with them. It took NATO to bomb Serbia for many people there to realize that those of us who warned that the selling out of Krajina Serbs would lead directly to an attack on Serbia itself, were right all along. Russia has the same problem, the West has to kick Russia in the face repeatedly for people with power to get the hint & smarten up. It is extremely frustrating, because Russia does not have to take any of this shit & could be far more assertive. I understand that Russia’s economy depends hugely on oil & gas sales to the West, & so without an alternative source of income there would be no ascendance of Russia in the first place, no revamping of the military, intervention in Syria, returning Crimea & so forth. I get that, & I suspect it is the single biggest reason why Putin & co. are so careful with their dealings with the West, that & attempting to avoid an unnecessary confrontation that could be avoided. But Russia must – just must – realize that the Anglo-American Empire, or Anglosphere, is out to destroy Russia in total, they want annihilation, nothing less. I know there are plenty of personalities in Russia who are aware of this, Dugin is aware of it, Sergei Glaziev is aware of it, Evgeny Federov, & many others, it is not entirely clear to me how many of the country’s leading figures appreciate this genocidal intent. So anything that helps them realize it is welcome in my eyes as well, because Russia is facing a serious onslaught, no question, I am not sure how the Anglo Empire is going to conduct its assault, I’m not sure they know either, but that it’s coming is for certain.
I totally agree with you. It frustrates me no end that the elite in Russia “still” seem to believe they can be “friends and pardners” with the West. As a Westerner ,I can see the way the West thinks and acts. And any Russians believing in the West’s “friendship” for them,is only fooling themselves.But the problem seems to be,what will it take for the Russians to wake-up fully to that fact.If they haven’t already with all the West’s actions. It might seriously have to take a new Barbarossa for them to wake-up.
I hope not but it would not surprise me if things really did have to go that far in order for the government &/or ruling establishment in Russia to adopt the necessary defensive position with regards to the West. I do think though, & it may be wishful thinking on my part, but I suspect that the main issue really is the dependency on the Western oil & gas market, the revenue Russia derives from exporting oil & gas is so crucial that without it all would be lost. If that is true we will find out when the Power of Siberia pipeline goes live, I believe in 2019, once Russia begins selling large quantities of gas to China their attitude regarding the West may change. An indication that this may be the case can be found in remarks of none other than Soros, who if you recall, with respect to Western sanctions against Russia, said that we (the West) have a 2 year window in which to destroy the Russian economy. He didn’t really explain why 2 years, but I think he had the pipeline to China in mind. It’s not that one pipeline can change everything, but it will mark the beginning of a genuine diversification of gas markets in which Russia will be no longer dependent so much on Western Europe & Germany in particular, for its revenue stream. I really hope this is the case, if it is, then in a couple of years we may begin to see stark changes, for the better, in Russia’s attitude towards the West. Not to mention that militarily Russia will have more advances weaponry on line as well, particularly missile technology, which will lessen the credibility of Washington’s threats. So time will tell I guess.
Vor, I seem to remember that Che was annoyed that the USSR did not nuke the USA during the Cuban Missile Crisis, on the basis of his opinion (garnered from 150 years, now 200, of Latin American experience) that the USA represented Absolute Evil, and, if not destroyed, would destroy the world, piece by piece. If my recollection is correct, I’d say that Che has been proved correct, although I can’t agree with the idea of thermo-nuclear war, which would, in any case, probably kill only innocent Americans and leave the ruling monsters alive.
I have no idea if Che really wanted that, I somehow doubt it though, he was fairly committed to his ideology& so from his socialist point of view he would see the poor & working class of the US as allies, as well as victims of the same capitalist-imperialist exploitative system that has been raping Latin America for so long. So I doubt he would advocate incerating the population of North America. Generally, you know how it goes with the hard Left, they believe in global revolution – a total delusion in my view, but that’s what they believe, & I think Che was on line with this opinion. Although I can not say for sure, because I’m no expert on this topic. As far as nuclear war goes, it doesn’t really bare thinking about, if it ever happens, we are all done for. So I would hope it doesn’t, & realistically I doubt it will, things will unfold differently, one empire after another will unravel until a multipolar world emerges, a long & drawn out process.
As a connoisseur of truthful vitriol I always appreciate your comments, Mulga. BTW I moved and kept moving out of North America, and presently haven’t caught up with all going on in the Vineyard, due to travel, devices not working properly until yesterday etc.
However, I did want to weigh in on the notion of “innocent Americans”. Call me extreme, but I assert that there are far fewer innocent Americans than most readers of your comment might think or imagine. Other than children or hapless victims of “the system” who have never recovered from early childhood blows and assaults on their minds and bodies, the great majority of Americans past the age of puberty are not innocent.
Why? Because truth is more available for them to discover than in any prior time in history. Yet the great majority of my fellow Americans are very determined to avoid truth (and the pain and responsibility it brings….) at ALL COSTS!!!
Responsible sentient beings who have no possibilities of discovering relevant facts and truth are only innocent due to the rare circumstances of nescience, the lack of possibility of knowing. Those who have the possibility of knowing or who actually know elements of the truth but ignore it out of fear, irresponsibility, etc are NOT innocent. They are ignoreant. This is what describes the overwhelming majority of Americans, not innocence.
I recently emailed adult relatives of my family describing the current strategic conjuncture and decrying their cowardice and moronic behavior and got only one mild peep of protest out of one of them. The most clueless of the lot, naturally.
Love (Dennis, my friend) is getting in th face of such slobs and gutless wonders and telling them the truth: they had better free their minds and cast off their slave chains or they may get us all killed.
They are not innocent. They are guilty of loving their chains and their sloth and immorality far, far more than they love truth. What’s a lover to do? Love them more than they are capable of loving themselves, by holding a mirror up to them so they have some slim chance of changing, if others more courageous than themselves begin to show them the way. Some of that is happening in this society of mental slaves. But not nearly enough, yet, for aggregate change that could break the Empire’s rule over their weak and fearful (if not outright evil) minds.
That’s why I wanted to comment. Don’t give up on Americans by calling them innocent. They are not innocent. They are ignorant, by choice!!!!. Tough love is demanding that they be kicked in the ass and told the truth about themselves, for once.
I hope to catch up on things in August, after returning home. Meanwhile trip was a success. 14 yr old half Russian son won gold medal in international scholastic competition.
Anon, thank-you for your generous observation re. my ‘vitriol’. Believe me, I do try to tone down what I think, and more so, feel. When I look at the world dominated by the greatest force for Evil in history, the USA, and see the genocidal mania of the Real Evil Empire, its Israeli puppet-masters and all the sundry other stooges and smaller monsters, I am left dumbfounded.
You can study all the philosophers, religious teachers, cultural geniuses and scientific greats, and get the distinct impression that H. sapiens is no bad thing, despite the horrors of bloodshed that appear so often in our history. Indeed many of the great, good, humans have been Americans.
Yet today we are almost certainly about to disappear from the cosmos. In every Western state the ruling elites in politics, the MSM and Big Business are not just vile, lying, hate-crazed hypocrites, but they combine that with an odious submission to the USA and Israel that is simply nauseating. When I was young, we had not a few politicians of intellect and integrity, men dominated to the common good, not to worshipping ‘The Market’, ie money power.
That all ended in 1975 when our Yankee ‘allies’ arranged a coup, a constitutional putsch, to remove our last decent Government, that of Whitlam, and since then every person even mildly critical of the USA and Israel or friendly to the USSR or Russia or China (but we still like their money), has been purged from public life. The country has been turned over to the rich parasite caste and tribe, and neo-liberal Market Fanaticism is slowly, but ever more quickly, grinding the serfs into the mud. Needless to say, between a quarter and a half of our richest billionaires are Jews, that from about 1% of our population, a situation that DARE NOT be noticed, let alone mentioned, or-Heaven forfend-discussed rationally as to why it is so, and is it good, for Jew and goy alike.
The MSM is utterly biased and partisan, and in deference to Our Moral Values of ‘Freedom of Opinion’, every presstitute has the same opinion, ie what Emperor Rupert Murdoch and the US/Israeli elite say. Deviation used to occur, around the edges, as, believe it or not, the world is NOT one-dimensional, but not any more. In any case the MSM doesn’t even deal in argument much any more, at all. Overwhelmingly, and this applies most strongly to the Murdoch cancer that dominates, the product is crudely propagandistic, and consists mostly of hate and fear. Hatred of (an incomplete list)Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela etc, environmentalists, ‘do-gooders’, Moslems, unionists, teachers??, Putin, feminists, gays, the Indigenous, public schools, renewable energy etc, and a long list of individuals, many long dead.
Over all this country has been frog-marched, in a few decades, from a fairly decent, laconic, amiable, respectful ‘society’ into the preferred US model, a competitive (with the competition rigged), anomic, greedy, culturally debased, dog-eat-dog ‘economy’ where Money Power controls everything and other people are, at best, the competition, but more often, the enemy. All, in my opinion, thanks to the dominance of the USA and the cowardice and connivance of local Quislings. And these same Quislings are now just itching to join their Masters in Washington in a war with China, our greatest economic benefactor who has NEVER done us a single harm.
As for Che, I don’t know if the story is apocryphal or black propaganda, but I see his logic. In 1962 the estimated casualties from a nuclear war would have been in the tens of millions. We didn’t know about ‘nuclear winters’ then, and stockpiles were much smaller than they became, or remain. In contrast, fifty years of continued barbarity by the US ruling elite since, militarily, but even more so economically, in imposing the genocidal ‘Washington Consensus’, has killed vastly more people, and will, soon, finish us off. A removal of Uncle Satan from the scene fifty years ago may not have ushered in a Golden Age, but his continued existence has brought us to the brink of Armageddon, an outcome, need we recall, that vast numbers of the US population and considerable portions of the ruling elite, actually welcome.
No, don’t pull any punches, Mulga. Vitirol must be as acidic as possible to be vintage and potent enough to dissolve the thickest alkaline encrustations of the mind.
Too rushed 2 days ago to put my recent handle at the top of the comment.
Home soon, with lots to catch up on,,,,,like audio I can’t play without waking up family.They sleep more than double what I do…then demand porter and chauffer never rest….
Two really cool encounters on this trip. A Fijian gal…great spark of intelligence and an American in total spiritual and emotional turmoil. Both oddly brightened my day…..
Thanks to all!
Why The United States Isn’t A True Democracy
True, you’re preaching to the convert. We all know the Azion empire is not a democracy – old hat my friend.
My wish – that China pulls out in solidarity and to express disdain for the corruption of the Olympic ideal.
Now that’s * really* wishful thinking I know.
But a person can dream, can’t they?
Re: the Olympic doping “scandal”. Yes, a protest boycott would work. Statement: You clean up your act and “depoliticize” the Olympics and we can go on. We do not accept an immoral provocation like this and the consequences are yours!
@I do not believe that there is a world-wide conspiracy to try to hurt, weaken or defame Russia.
A distinguo is necessary. The term ‘Conspiracy’ derives from the Latin verb ‘cōnspīrō, cōnspīrāre <con+spiro. The meaning is 'to breath with' (someone else), to blow in harmony (for wind instruments in an orchestra). The term came to be used interchangeably with 'conjuratio', 'complot' which are 'criminal conspiracy'.
There is a world-wide 'conspiracy' of the people who breathe the same sulphurous air blown from the windbags of the few real 'conjurors', who really want to hurt, weaken and defame Russia. They have been exposed to these sulphurous emanations for such a long time already, that their mental faculties have been thoroughly affected (bordering imbecility and downright insanity). They have been reduced to the state of clowns and buffons. I think that the more Russia let them make fools of themselves, the better.
One last thought here is that if Putin’s not a total fool, stupid and naive of the fact that the US empire is totally committed to and intent on ousting him and crushing Russia as an emerging superpower and nation, why don’t we give him some slack here while he rebuilds and gathers his forces and strength in order to take on the mightiest economic and military force that the entire earth has ever witnessed? And forgive and forget all the diplomatic talk of mutual “partners” and “friendships” while he’s working behind the scenes to build up a world wide alliance between Russia, China, India, Iran, Africa and South America in order to eventually take on and supersede the economic and military dominance and tyranny that the US and the West has enjoyed ever since the the ending of the second world war. Let’s give the guy a break, since Rome wasn’t build in a day nor destroyed overnight.
The Saker is batting 400 here. Russia needs only Russia. The culture is deep enough to be self sufficent from music to munitions. The people are intelligent and need never play second fiddle to the west. Untapped natural resources good till the next iceage, with a tough breed of people capable of exploiting what has been given. Time to slam the door and crush anyone who knocks too loud.
Excellent, and for what it’s worth I wholly share your wishful thinking supplanted with a prayer or two.
In 1980 when Russia was host to the Olympics- many western countries boycotted the Olympics in Russia-.. . Why, because USA ordered it- and as USA said- because of Russia´s war in Afghanistan……..
No one, not even Russians, need a Russian (or Indian, or Belgian etc) controled “NGO”, whether it’s about Sports, Human Rights or anything else. Not any more than we need the current AZ ones. By definition those needs to be international.
I think it’s worth fighting for the control of those organizations from the hands of small interest groups/media biased because I can’t see any other way. But the solution is rather as you mentioned it yourself: win the media war. You wait the crisis on a front to pass, one or two year, then RT air a spectacular documentary on drug use in US sports, for instance. You make a list of 2nd best angry, get millions of outraged viewers worldwide and then come to the commity and say “ok, same situation, same outcome ? Do you ban the US ?”. They do or they don’t but only then do you have the clear cut double standards to show to the world.
Also I wouldn’t pass by a good dose of bribing. What we’ve been seeing may just be a bribing war lost by Russia.
Another perspective…”It is surely however no coincidence that this Hitlerian symbol has obscured rather than illuminated the true nature of the regime that now attempts to control the thoughts and actions of “the sheepish masses”. “Tell a big lie and keep on telling it” was Goebbels’s creed, a creed expounded in order that the wider beliefs of the eugenicist group of people of which he was a member should both come to ascendancy and achieve the dominance that was their “raison d’etre”. Should it come as a surprise that the (again ostensibly), polarised debate about the true nature of evolution that so characterised the wars and conflicts (both national and international), of (especially the first half of), the twentieth century has lost it’s definition at the beginning of the twenty first? One feels that one should pose the question to our social science students ; “Did The Third Reich Continue or the Fourth Reich Commence? (discuss)” (if they can find the time whilst avoiding the herds of pachyderms which now populate -through no fault of their own-, our academic institutions). Is not the current “drive to inclusion” really nothing more than another expression of the eugenicist nature of our society? “It’s o.k they’re like us really, look there’s one balancing a ball on it’s nose!” is not the comment of one truly comfortable with their surroundings. It is surely only by reassuring ourselves by giving “air-time” to the patronising and condescending assertions of Dr. Goebbels that we can be “comfortable” with an economic system that allows an increasingly more privileged minority to continue to prosper at the expense of the most vulnerable.” “Arafel” http://gkhales.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/a-strange-love-indeed.html?spref=tw AND (further more -as it were-, Mr.Saker) http://gkhales.blogspot.co.uk/2016/07/lemmy-tell-you-something-victory-or-die.html
Olympcis ban is a small price to pay compared to the knid of humiliations-treasons we’ve been through in France (ok, extreme example with our gellyfish spineless president “Flamby”).
-Mistrals, selling them? YES, then NO ,(ex spcialist FA ministers, Hubert Vedrine & Roland Dumas said we no longer have a foreign policy in France)
-Draft law on ending the sanctions voted by parliament and Senate? simply ignored by president and the EU
-Paris and nice terracts, most likely gladio ops, meanwhile france hosts as “refugee” one of the main takfiri leaders from free syrian army and kills 120 civilians in a blind air assault to avenge Nice victims
I wonder about that ‘revenge’ air strike in Syria.
Who gave the coordinates?
Russia is due to host the next football (soccer to our American friends) World Cup in 2018. It is a better than even bet that something will be cooked up by the Anglo-Zionists to get this banned and re-located to a more ‘suitable’ (cui bono) venue.
Yes, these psychopaths are willing to start a war rather than let Russia bask in the glory of organizing a world class sporting event. Remember the western media campaign to mock Russia before the Sochi olympics? If anyone remembers the boycott of Moscow 1980 olympics they will see a pattern.
It’s sad because America has tried so hard to present itself as an inclusive society no matter race color religion etc.. (all empty talk) yet it’s actions reveal a nation deeply jealous of other’s successes.
I like your rant, Saker. I feel this silent rage inside me; it is just all so freaking unfair. I guess that is what they want? So I must resist.
I understand that Russia’s patience and perseverance will eventually bring results (heck, they already do), but like with a school yard bully, don’t you just want to give all these Western arse lickers a big juicy slap back? Just once? But how, without hurting the populace?
I do also wish Russia would stop participating in all this farce. Stage her own events.
Wishful thinking as you say…
I agree Saker. It’s time to call the West’s bluffs and disengage from their controlled international organizations.
Russia certainly doesn’t need them and I dare say, most of the world doesn’t need America’s international institutions or America and the Anglo-Zionists (as you say) for that matter.
It’s not like they have done any good to the world in the last 50 or so years.
We still have the issue of public perception controlled by western media and hollywood and the issue of the fifth columnists you speak of in Russia.
My greatest fear when it comes to being hopeful about the future of society and the world is that people are easily bought and a few bought people can and do sabotage progress for millions of others.
Personally, I think the system has people and countries by the balls with the credit that people live off these days.
The revolution must start with the regulation of international financial institutions. A small step towards restoring ideas of morality. Only when we establish morality can we dare to engage in wishful thinking.
Regarding WADA, a couple of Russian pranksters phoned the Irish head of the organisaiton who admitted the only evidence thay have against RUssia is the work of a RUssian now living in the US. Rodchenkov used to supply Russian athletes with a doping cocktail of his own making and defected to the US.
See my comment in the “Reaction of Elena Isinbaeva” article/statement..
…I totally agree with brother The Saker, it is an absolute and utter disgrace and dishonor for any Russian Olympian to go to the Rio Olympics, while their entire track and field team has been sanctioned.
This decision of boycotting the entire Olympics in Brazil has to come from the President of the Russian Federation Mr. Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, by forcing President of the Russian Olympic Committee Mr. Alexander Dmitriyevich Zhukov to pull out of the games…
…The reaction to such a disgrace, injustice and oppression cannot be taken by individual athletes, but by the head of the Russian Federation and the Russian Olympic Committee.
….I personally cannot even imagine these leaders to accept such a disgrace and dishonor, but if they do, they have surely disgraced themselves and the country they represent.
As for all Empire associated events, I completely agree with The Saker that the time has come to pull out of these events, The Saker is simply suggesting for the Russians to start speeding up this inevitable process.
Whatever is happening I ALWAYS turn to the Saker to sort it out concisely and cogently.
“/…/ but I find it unlikely that the judges as the Eurovision or the CAS were paid to take their decision. This is not how this works.”
Beg to differ. The “Zio” part takes precedence over the “Nazi” part in the “Zionazi” compound. Unbridled greed, squalor, sleaze, crime, and corruption provide that lovely, revered perfume to the West’s entire material and ideological/cultural superstructure (plus a certain stench of faggotry and paedophilia).
On this basis, the assertion included in the opening quote becomes utterly unreasonable. Indeed: take away the bribery and ask yourselves how much would then likely be left of this “Russophobia-On-Duty” among the West’s officialdom. By contrast, Eastern European Nazis and their Pindo kith and kin across the Atlantic are a diffrent matter entirely. Their hatred of Russia, for all its drooling, violent insanity, is much more genuine and wouldn’t change much whatever the “rewards” (look at the wondrous joys of the Ukraine).
“Why not have a Russia based international human rights organization to compete against the CIA or Soros controlled ones?”
Yes, that would undoubtedly be a highly significant step in the right direction. Today, the ever-growing contempt and outright hatred of the Anglo-Zionazi squalor and degeneration have become so manifest that Russia could well seize the opportunity and launch a host of unabashedly — entirely truthful — anti-Western news outlets across the world. That would also have the very considerable benefit of instantly shutting up all but the whole Russophobic propaganda swamp known as the Western MSM, brusquely waking the latter up to “less pleasant circumstances”.
Saker – 100% agree. There are no 1/2 measures or compromises left for the kind of corrupt decision making in the “West”. History and truth will eventually reveal the rotten heart and body of the hegemon – some of it is already happening. I am not proud of being an American. I am ashamed.
The more they try to participate in these events the more the HYPOCRISY of the West is exposed to those sitting on the political fence, and watching this from the bottom of the world, it is NOT a pretty process !!
If Russia really wants to wake people up they should disclose the truth about the Global Geoengineering/HAARP programs to dim out the sun. This may make a dent in awakening if it comes from Putin’s mouth as Russia also participates in this program along with the rest of the world. Maybe if people know the truth about the catastrophic environmental issues they may lift their heads up and look at the sky instead of their phones.
Wonderful.. I hope none of my Australian relatives ever read this. It is too good for them. Bravo. I don’t always agree with The Saker but this time (and most times) I most certainly commend you for some wonderful insights especially ‘…call me passé, but I believe in such antiquated notions as honor, solidarity and dignity.’
While once again I suspect I’ll be sorely disappointed in Russia’s response to Western aggression. When as expected by many ,the IOC tomorrow bans Russia from the Olympic Games in Rio. Its my hope that Russia will withdraw from the IOC ,ending the charade of a World Olympic movement.It should have been done in 1980,when the West first tried blackmail against the USSR. It wasn’t,so we’ve seen the West’s control over the IOC become almost total by now.There is no (acceptable) reason for Russia to continue to humiliate herself ,by kowtowing to an organization that will turn against her anytime ordered to by the West.But sadly ,if past performance is a guide. The unchecked 5th column is strong enough in power in Russia. To once more prevent Russia from doing the right thing. We’ll have the answer ,I guess,tomorrow or by Monday at the latest.
Just a though for all the Canuks new or old stock that, angry as hell (as I am):
Russia is the litmus test of Canadian sovereignty.
In other words, given the contemporary political context we are in only friendly ties with Russia can prove that Canada is a truly independent country. And that is because Russia is a neighbor just across the Arctic, and good cooperative neighbourly relationships is the hallmark of a truly independent country. Just think of Arctic cooperation of all kinds. Short of that we’re just an adjourned version of the old colonial auxiliary mindset that has shaped the country’s history.
This article by Alexander Mercouris predicts the develop of an informal split from the American-dominated…sorry, “international” Olympics movement with parallel and opposiing athletic competitions and institutions–similar to how there are developing financial, economic, and geopolitical institutions against America’s unipolar New World Order.
The Olympic Movement: Heading for a split?
The Court of Arbitration in Sport was as stacked as was the kangaroo court that brought down the insanely biased and TOTALLY antagonistic verdict against China over the South China Sea. That the Western pressitute MSM (surely one of the most scabrous collections of villainous liars and hypocrites ever, or even ever possible)did not dare mention that the ‘Philippines’ legal team contained NO or very few Filipinos, but a bunch of US lawyers, that the panel was NOT a court, does not dispense International Law, was headed by a Japanese (a fascist state still illegally occupying Chinese territory in the Diaoyu Islands, seized by the Japanese Imperialism that the revanchist fascist Abe so praises)Rightist, who appointed four Western stooges, from Poland, France, Germany and Holland (the ‘International Community’ of white ubermenschen, ‘No Chinese, dogs or others allowed’)and one Ghanaian stooge (shades of the villainous puppet Kofi Annan) who has spent his entire career in the West, and is widely known to be totally controlled (as are all multilateral organs) by Thanatopolis DC, is quite typical.That the vile monstrosity of the hate dirge from Ukraine won Eurovision is quite beyond belief. It MUST have been rigged during the phone voting. Surely not even relentless brainwashing could produce such a nauseating result that reduced this harmless carnival to something out of a debased Nuremberg Rally.
As for Rio, I watched the BBC ‘mockumentary’ prepared in open collusion with the campaign. To call it ludicrous would be generous, but the MSM hate campaign, particularly by the Murdoch cancer, was trade-mark deranged. ‘Putin out the Rubbish!’, ‘Black Russians!’etc, just another hate campaign by a MSM that does little but peddle lies, fear, hate and greed, basically reflecting the character of Emperor Rupert and the Western ruling caste he so adorns. You can CERTAINLY kiss goodbye to the 2018 World Cup, and the hate campaign that has demolished FIFA can pretty clearly be seen as preparatory to that.
As for the future, well, I see it as vanishingly possible that humanity will avoid destruction in the next few decades. The whole Evil Western system of neo-feudalism based on the psychopathology of the elite parasite caste and tribes, where greed is insatiable, fear and hatred of others unbounded, empathy and compassion are entirely absent or fraudulently mimicked, and egomania runs amuk, is clearly moribund. It is collapsing under stagnation driven by unpayable debt and unparalleled poverty and elite wealth and power, the serfs are revolting, despite wave after wave of ‘Divide and Rule’ tactics, the Zionazi ordered ‘Clash of Civilizations’ in the war on Islam the most dangerous (and now running out of control, after already causing several million deaths and the Stone Age devastation of a number of countries)and ecological collapse is careering away. The Bosses appear to actually see a world war as their salvation-nothing else could possibly explain the insane aggression and belligerence of their actions, and the Orwellian disinformation of their MSM stooges. The prospects, as they say, are not bright.
Great comment Mulga, good to see you here back again !
Thank-you, Ioan. Nice to see you, too.
“Withdraw from any and all venue which are under AngloZionist control”
Russia should withdraw from WTO and from any other international agreements that promote neoliberal economic globalization
Nice honest thinking and ideas. But you’d find always general people, who perhaps making mistakes, judging from stuff’s outer look.
That’s why, I always asking question like, “How many real honest intelligent person it need so a country (or community) can build their own fate?” – not so many. Really.
But I’d like to join something with your proposal on what Russia can do?, is – making their Universities more stronger, and inviting same minded people from oppressed community to study. What Russia had in USSR time, and that was really great.
A good student, from a oppressed community, with a great education offer – first will make his/her better life, offer wide space of thought, and clearly point out why he/she is oppressed to help the same fellow.
Good to see some many Canadians! Im probably more cynical of the globalists. If it were up to me i would hang them all personally. And im one of the kindest guys you will.ever meet.
I agree with all this, but, i already see the spin they will make if Russia does that. “Evil Russian regime bans poor athletes/singers/whatever from participating in whatever! Muh human rights!! etc etc etc”
I think Russia should let the slaps keep coming, playing a sort of rope-a dope game like Mohammad Ali used to do in boxing. The more the West seeks to demean Russians, the more the West is exposed for what it is. Trump said it well, when he said that the US should stop talking and clean up its own mess. That is why the Bilderbergers want to get rid of him and are pulling out all stops. Yes, every time the US attacks even one Russian, the more it shows itself as a declining and truly evil empire. Revulsion is mounting in the world. Patience! And remember to let the hypocrite show his true colors – as often as he is stupidly able to do so.
BraVO !! I stand by your comments ! Russia doesn’t have to go to the Olympics… I would even go further & withdraw totally from the Olympics by telling them, “Go get sodomised “!!
Russia should have acted swiftly perhaps since the occupation of Ukraine, eve before that, have some kind of platform to reach out to the Western public their governments are leading them to war. Russia must do announcement/declaration to the West and the world the danger globalists are leading the world towards. It is they the aggressiveness not Russia. Besides, just like NATO, Russia could have made alliance with many countries. In fact the number of supports Russia will have from other countries will be more if Russia had taken initiative a while back. Russia has more advantage in getting majority of world nations than West. What is more is that, Russia should take advantage getting alliance with the Muslim world that has been depopulated by west and their militants. Always seek however to solve things peacefully but knowing the track history of the US, I doubt it. They even tricked Russia NATO will not expand but today or is different story.
Telemundo is just like CNN,only dumber(if that s possible),Telesur was the one whose license was revoked by the Macri goverment
Dear Saker, I love reading your heartfelt posts. Everything you say I understand, and I am still hoping Russia will pull out of the games altogether. Do their own games. Invite everyone and see who is brave enough to come.
But mostly I love your wisdom. Mind and heart working together for better solutions.
I thank you.
Brilliant, very fine reasoning. Common sense is in too short supply. How about more of it? Another rant on the empire use of propaganda to replace real policy and what blowback from such a policy looks like, globally!
Great rant, Saker.
Personally, I am disappointed in world athletes.
Where are the honourable ones standing in solidarity with banned Russians?
Surely some of them think past the propaganda and know what the banning is about.
