There is a glowing review of Obama-esque ‘hope’ concerning the nomination of William ‘Bill’ Burns as the new administration’s Director of CIA. The review is plausible/improbable & outcome remains to be seen. [1]

Written by an Indian diplomat, M K Bhadrakumar, he takes an interesting quote from Burn’s book ‘The Back Channel: A Memoir of American Diplomacy and the Case for its Renewal‘ in a context of less ‘militarization’ wherein Burns asserts American diplomacy should:

“…harness all the tools of American statecraft – from the soft power of ideas, culture, and public diplomacy, to … intelligence-gathering and covert action”

As well, Bhadrakumar notes:

“Burns is widely praised as a titan of the foreign policy world and also happens to belong to that breed of diplomats who believe that diplomacy and espionage are two sides of the same coin”

One presumes the article & quotes more or less exclude CIA paramilitary operations (e.g. Syria) as a direction that should be emphasized in Burns’ philosophy as the new Director of Central Intelligence.

But, there is this other point, in case of Burn seeing diplomacy & espionage as “two side of the same coin” where in fact the CIA & USA’s Department of State are historically more like ‘Siamese twins.’ This second is a qualified point that sees things a bit differently than two sides of the same coin (public postures vs back-stabbing acts) in a matter of Siamese twins or more than one cognitive process pushing or initiating policy in fact. This is more than a typical two-faced ‘diplomacy’ coin, in a case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is up to.

Of course, as always, it will be the factual legacy Burns leaves behind him that will determine what will be and what came to naught. In this vein, it should do to examine a bit (just a bit) of Burns’ history, raise a question and propose a litmus test.

My recollection of Bill Burns in respect to Iran is a bit different to the pundits of the present; as a matter of fact Burns has been in past circumstance of having to work with some of the USA’s nastiest ‘diplomatic’ personalities and guilt by association, e.g. a murderess or the murderous Condoleezza Rice, is ‘just deserts’ in the political game. [2]

That Burns is presumably a good reporter of facts is no solid indicator his proposed philosophical outlook will be of any significance whatsoever. [3]

The question posed is, how much control over the actual function of the CIA Burns will actually possess (or even care to possess.) He will be pressed from above and below to implement criminal policies, and authorize criminal acts. His superiors are incompetent politicians steeped in aggressive geopolitical lies & greed, e.g. ‘The Russians did it’, no matter if or when the Russians did not do it & rank corporate corruption or practically unlimited “Citizens United” undisclosed PAC money and; his minions (senior CIA operatives), are quite frankly, tactically & socially stupid, not only patently treasonous, international criminals. [4]

Litmus test: when the present and two preceding FBI directors (Mueller, Comey & Wray), all of them, have shielded a narcotics cartel hit-man (serial killer), that is Enrique ‘ricky’ Prado, for the fact Prado doubled as a high ranking CIA officer-operative, does Burns stop protecting Prado, allowing prosecutions to go forward, or does Burns consider shielding Prado that part of “covert action” that is legitimate ‘statecraft’? [5]

In fact it is time someone cleaned up the CIA’s act. Will Burns do it or will he even exercise control over an agency shielding numerous rank killers, not only Prado? Does the Obama-Brennan era extra-judicial “Kill List” targeting American citizens, and the harassment, sabotaging the personal lives of, and framing of dissident Americans living abroad (a laundered, CIA version of the FBI’s COINTELPRO) cease and desist or do these mafia quid pro quo programs see new ‘life’ breathed into them? [6]

This target (yours truly) wants to know. Because as of this week, in Serbia, it is become clear the ‘dogs have not been called off.’ [7]

But maybe I should know already. The counter-point analysis that should be read, relating to Burns’ “The Back Channel”, describes a man incapable of comprehending his failures. The teaser from John Helmer:

“William Burns is the man who might have been US Secretary of State if Hillary Clinton had been elected President in November 2016. Since then he has been composing an apologia pro vita sua — a book of religious convictions describing what went wrong through no fault of his own or of God’s, explaining what a victim Burns and the United States have been of bad luck; bad timing; President Donald Trump’s “narcissism”, “erratic leadership” and “active sabotage”; and Russian malevolence

“To the ex-Ambassador to Russia and ex-Deputy Secretary of State, the Russian evil is a motiveless, psychopathological crime. Russians, especially the few high-ranking ones Burns met as a State Department apparatchik, can’t help themselves. There is no cause and effect between action and reaction, between US offence and Russian defence. Nothing Christian Brothers alumni and missionary Americans like Burns have done explains (in Burns’s tract) why the Russians behave so badly, and why their souls must forever burn in hell unless they repent. Five hundred pages of holier-than-thou, confessor to the wicked Russians — that’s been the Burns mission” [8]

“Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as cooperation with the good” -Mahatma Ghandi

The ‘national security state’s’ political rhetoric describing the Washington DC pro-Trump protests and Trump’s so-called ‘complicity’ in events unfolding over the 2020 election has been quite socially irresponsible.

This language is inflammatory and further divisive in case where a very large section of the body politic (however naively) see Trump as being crucified for the ‘fact’ of attempting to ‘drain the swamp’ or end ‘business as usual’ in national politics perceived as intolerably corrupt.

Referencing the USA’s Supreme Court decision “Citizens United” which has allowed what amounts to unlimited money influencing American election outcomes through Political Action Committees (PACs, see preceding article) it is ‘refreshing’ (HA!) to note corporations abroad (!) are coming out of the closet (moronically publicizing) the fact they have a history of pumping money into the political agendas in Washington:

“Danish Pharmaceutical [giant] Novo Nordisk is taking a stance on the political situation in the US as it halts its payments to US politicians. For now” [1]

This follows other mega-corporations (e.g. Wall Street colossus Charles Schwab) have been ditching donations until (no doubt) their lawyers can sort the direction and end game of the present controversy. Why? Liability potential due to the rhetoric of “sedition”, “Insurgents” and “inciting armed rebellion.”

In short, there is a fear of prosecution and/or lawsuits for having potentially donated to what will be categorized as treasonous acts within the United States, including acts by members of Congress. These are the superficial worries of a corporate state sans any deep understanding of the developing, untenable social dynamic where such rhetoric only grows a greater instability and wider potential for violent civil strife.

What we are actually witnessing is corporate deep state internecine war where the two opposing factions, the allied “Israel First!” neoconservative & “Prosperity Gospel” apocalyptic Christian Zionist corporate board personalities have been behind Trump/Pence, and the opposed ‘police state of empire’ neoliberal corporate board personalities who’ve been aligned with Pelosi/Shumer (prior to the ‘election’.)

As this plays out (in the common political vernacular) the neoliberal wing of the corporate ‘deep state’, represented in the Democrats, are piling on, smelling blood and opportunity to break the Republican party in pieces which is entirely possible but not a very far sighted strategy.

In fact Trump is not only a manipulated naif (by the numerous quislings that have surrounded him) but also represents (however misguidedly) a VERY REAL & BIG piece of a desperate electorate only wanting ‘business as usual’ in DC to finally be countered. This piece of the electorate will likely get that but not in any good way … Biden/Harris is enlisting a who’s who of empire and police state personalities that point to a highly vindictive administration across the spectrum and, the ‘dims’ Pelosi & Shumer, will be right there, egging it on. In short ‘other words’, the game has been taken to the next level and here’s how:

Western intelligence professionals working media are taking up & promoting knee-jerk, self-fulfilling reactionary propaganda by several means including ‘joint intelligence agencies’ reports pointing towards a future era of McCarthy-like witch-hunts…

“DOMESTIC EXTREMISTS, MOTIVATED BY conspiracy theories and opposed to mitigation measures against the coronavirus, pose “the greatest domestic terrorism threats” against the United States in 2021, according to a new government report. The report, dated January 13, is contained in a Joint Intelligence Bulletin, which is produced jointly by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Counterterrorism Center” [2]

…further radicalizing a large segment of the electorate should propose a moment of ‘let’s all pause and consider the actual trajectory.’

The “DOMESTIC EXTREMISTS motivated by conspiracy theories” in an ‘intelligence report’ released in the context of the moment, takes aim squarely at Trump’s ‘talking points’ of election fraud and his ‘counter-covid narrative’, and just lumped one half of the American or the conservative electorate (never-mind antifa) into a talent pool of suspicion creating opportunity for police state persecution little different to the ‘red scare’ political witch-hunts of the 1950s. Shortly it will come to promoting any belief the election had been stolen by fraud is ‘sedition’ and makes anyone asserting this a potential “insurgent” (keep reading.)

The USA’s election fraud history can be made succinct; it would appear it had gone on for a very long time, from at least since Lincoln’s 1860 nomination at the Republican convention in Chicago where his organization printed counterfeit tickets to admit his people (extra delegates) to take the seats of William Seward’s delegates. [3]

Skip forward to 1948 and LBJ’s election to the Senate and you have a stuffed ballot box tipped the scale for Johnson and a primary player in that fraud, Abe Fortas, was later rewarded with a Supreme Court seat when Johnson became president. [4]

Fast forward to 2004 and the intrepid Bev Harris (somehow gone missing for the 2020 election, warned off?) who discovered & documented the Diebold computer vote tabulation fraud resulting in the HBO documentary “Hacking Democracy”…

…and went on to establish blackboxvoting.org where it has been further established the old Diebold GEMS system (hack malware, actually) had been incorporated to the Dominion system as recently as 2016:

So, the now ‘seditious’ belief the 2020 election may actually have been stolen has a rational basis in fact whether it were Trump believes this or the one half of the electorate that supports Trump. Seditious belief? Well, yes, that’s what has been put into the article of impeachment:

“He [Trump] also willfully made statements [concerning the election] that encouraged — and foreseeably resulted in — imminent lawless action at the Capitol,” the article states. “Incited by President Trump, a mob unlawfully breached the Capitol, injured law enforcement personnel, … and engaged in violent, deadly, destructive and seditious acts” [5]

Never mind Trump, after asking the crowd to “walk” to the congress as part of a legal protest, repeatedly asked the crowd to behave respectfully, peacefully and be law-abiding when elements of the crowd broke into the Capitol. There was no stated desire by Trump pointedly inciting violence. [6], [7]

Now, to the use of the language of “insurrection” and “insurgents.” In the election riots of 1968, the descriptions by the police state elements of that era characterized their opponents “radical anti-war demonstrators.” Even as recently as the George Floyd protests, some of which were quite violent, the demonstrators are labeled “protestors.” [8]

But now, suddenly American protestors (who happen to be conservative) are “insurgents” pursuing “insurrection.” [9], [10]

This will see much of America, that America that happens to be conservative and Trump supporters (a VERY BIG piece of the electorate) having become suspect (in their perception) with the state using terminology more often associated with terrorism along the lines of al Qaida and this rhetoric will indeed breed some very intense resentment in the larger part of the armed populace (conservatives.)

‘Please excuse my French’ but employing this terminology conflating Trump and his supporters with terrorism is nothing short of incredibly fucking stupid. Recalling the “Joint Intelligence Bulletin” referenced towards the beginning of this article, one is tempted to compare this ‘language describing terrorists’ to the disclaimer in another ‘joint intelligence’ production that had turned out to be totally worthless:

”Judgments are not intended to imply that we have proof that shows something to be a fact. Assessments are based on collected information, which is often incomplete or fragmentary, as well as logic, argumentation, and precedents” –ICA 2017 01 Annex B’s “estimative language” a.k.a. the ‘we make this shit up’ disclaimer buried in the ‘Russian election hack’ report authored by the “joint US intelligence agencies”

Only now, we can lampoon this preceding with a rewrite:

”Judgments are intended to piss people off to a point that we will have proof when they begin shooting at us they’ve become terrorists in fact. Assessments are based on our collective ill-informed ignorance, which is entirely narcissistic, consequent badly flawed logic justifying our employ as ‘peace-keepers’, and, of course, COINTELPRO precedents” [11]

With highly credible evidence the Dominion vote tally machines are “designed for fraud”, it follows any denial of a national forensic exam of the 2020 election only adds to the conviction of the Trump electoral base the vote had been stolen and grows the FBI’s talent pool of suspected “insurgents”, an ‘insurgency rhetoric’ reinforced with the deployment of (an absolute message of ‘No dialogue!’/de facto preparation for civil war) 20,000 soldiers to Washington, DC for Biden’s inauguration. [12], [13]

But, of course, none of this matters to the neoliberal wing of the corporate deep state, ceding power back to the people via the ballot box is not in the cards; nor would it be in the cards of the opposed corporate neoconservative/prosperity gospel Christian Zionist faction if they were to prevail. For a sense of balance, check out the Republican dirt in the elections process with the reporting of Greg Palast:

“Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as cooperation with the good” -Mahatma Ghandi

 

The ceremonial investment of Biden as President of the United States is little more than theater along the lines history’s crowning a new ‘Holy Roman Emperor.’ After this ‘investment’ show, any honest president’s “State of the Union” address should cover important points underlying the current state of the USA’s social psychology. The USA most certainly will NOT be provided this honest assessment but simply more & growing transparent political lies underpinning greed that ‘secures’ empire.

What certainly will be missing is, the fact that since the National Security Act of 1947, ‘rule of law’ in these ‘United States’ has been transformed into ‘color of law’ where constitutional principles can no longer be squared with the laws as made and applied in fact. The oath to uphold the constitution has become a caricature that is patently meaningless.

Conservative America more largely, and America’s liberal dissidents in lesser numbers, sense this judicial perversion and it is the conservatives are the historic keepers of those constitutional principles most departed from in this ‘new age of national security.’

The USA is in a state of the nation’s anti-federalist heritage, primarily, having been usurped. It was supposed to be both, a constitutional balance of the federalist & anti-federalist philosophies, or that is to say a central government with solid checks, not one or the other in the extreme that is tyranny or anarchy with leadership gone off the rails.

It follows, in a case where the people have been so pervasively lied to, for so long, there are now two entirely separate & artificial realities, with either side incapable of grasping neutral facts beyond the borders of their own cultural myths. That’s the fruit of irresponsible ‘free speech’ in a corporate monopolized modern mainstream media where political lies possess so-called ‘constitutional’ protections. For this fact, neither side, conservative or liberal, can correctly read those foundational principles that should have, if only they had been adhered to, prevented the “security state’s” overreach, which is a complaint of the one side on one day and the complaint of the other side on another day, depending solely upon who is in the cross-hairs of proposed and/or enacted legislation.

Mutually exclusive historical revisionism accounts finding their way into the social fabric are part and parcel of these isolated (divorced from reality) cultural myths in the two alienated camps of the present body politic. For instance the Evangelical wing of the Republicans have rewritten the First Amendment’s history concerning separation of church & state to favor the Christian church particularly; while the Democrats have consistently misrepresented (done away with) the Second Amendment’s original purpose as a ‘check of last resort’ on state tyranny.

The 1st of the preceding threatens devolution into a large segment of an armed populace propping up what amounts to anarchy-like or mob rule led by ‘Christian ayatollahs’, whereas the 2nd of the preceding threatens a disarmed populace with whatever a corporate (1%) tyranny’s whims demand in any given moment.

The current ‘divide & conquer’ tensions play out in unbridgeable social dynamic where the red states’ conservatives are being driven to a deeply superstitious conservatism of a distant past due to a real subliminal fear of a ‘liberal’ cultural revolution being imposed upon them; while the blue states’ liberals are becoming radicalized into intolerant ‘woke’ because they perceive a revanchist conservatism threat imposing what they consider are archaic social values on themselves in turn.

The George Bush mantra “You are with us or against us” is now employed in domestic politics, whether called forth in the attitudes of Pelosi and Shumer or their allies represented in the “Never Trump!” Republicans, this is recently a threat aimed indiscriminately at a large section of the American public. Claiming Trump is the leader of the USA white supremacist movement is like claiming Biden is the leader of LA’s MS-13 gang. Trump is a perfectly imperfect hope or expression of 1/2 of an electorate desperate to escape ‘business as usual’ in DC opposed to Biden and Biden’s “Never Trump!” Republican support or the corporate establishment’s determination to never cede power back to the people.

“You are with us or against us” is no longer a threat thrown solely at the “homeland’s” foreign ‘provinces of empire’ in circumstance where domestically the Republican Party is broken and the Democratic Party is terminally ill with the disease of corruption. These times find the levers of power have been invested in what amounts to a coterie of reactionary, radically ignorant leaders (includes the moron Trump surrounded by ‘prosperity gospel’ corporate minions who could not altogether control him, not only the radical ignorance of Pelosi, Schumer, Biden & Harris.)

With little or no middle ground left, and middle ground is the only way forward that would see the state’s institutions secure over the long run, is there an avenue available to the alienated parties to sit down and talk?

In the present circumstance, the plain answer is “NO.”

Culminating in the treasonous SCOTUS decision “Citizens United” any pretense the people’s representatives actually answer to the people at the ballot box is dead. Politicians answer to corporate wealth that is the billions pumped into buying elections (especially military-industrial related corporate billions) and any (practically all) political career(s) become dependent on this corporate wealth and are incapable of responsibly responding to or serving the will of a now fatally divided electorate.

With the American Congress having morphed into a 21st Century science fiction monster’s corporate exoskeleton, similar to JRR Tolkien’s giant, malevolent spider Shelob, but now representing American empire rather than Mordor, the spine of democracy has been dissolved from the inside. It isn’t/wasn’t the Russians, China or Iran. The many acts of a corporate ‘axis of evil’ are clearly an American internal affair, and there is no one left to fix this mess in any genuine sense of ‘democratic principles’ that factually no longer exist; because water cannot be drunk from a mirage.

A logical conclusion would be empire puppet & ‘police state champion’ (Patron Saint of Incarceration) Kamala Harris had been the consensus choice of the neoliberal wing of the military/industrial corporate state; because demanding the ‘nuclear trigger’ be removed from a “deranged” Trump (beware of the false-flag with an apocalyptic Pence finger on the button) within the last two weeks of his presidency, only to hand it to Biden who’d plainly been entering a state of senile dementia from the 2020 campaigns’ inception, is an oxymoron too great, a reach too far.

Biden has been nothing more than a vehicle to ultimately put this multiple primaries loser on the throne. Because she is black and a woman, no doubt Harris’ ‘masters’ hope the ‘woke’ libtard electorate would follow her off a cliff like so many lemmings. That’s the real nature of psyops.

Capitol |ˈkapitl| (usu. the Capitol)

1 the temple of Jupiter on the Capitoline Hill in ancient Rome.
2 the seat of the US Congress in Washington, DC.

ORIGIN from Old French capitolie, later reassimilated to Latin Capitolium (from capit- ‘head’)

Well, boys & girls (or unisex, gender neutral ‘girlie-boys’ for the ‘woke’), we all thought democracy was a scintillating or capital idea. But, you-know, that empire thing grabbed it by the balls…

“The extension of the empire has meant the growth of private fortunes. This is nothing new, indeed it is in keeping with the most ancient history” -Gaius Asinius Gallus (from Tacitus, The Annals of Imperial Rome)

The 1st message that should be drawn from the USA’s ‘capitol convulsion’ is ‘color of law’ simply cannot be made to work. Any pretense of the jurists notwithstanding, an immense body of law (practically everything of significance since the National Security Act of 1947) that merely wears the make-up of  constitutional conformity, like Nancy Pelosi’s cosmetics cannot conceal the mental decay that comes with her age, is a deceit doomed to fail. It’s a bit like the USA’s satellite, the European Union, with it’s 40 paid corporate lobbyists for each European Member of Parliament sitting in Brussels, where ‘Capital’ (greed) runs these empire provinces and the ‘circus’ (examples given, National Football League in the USA, Champions League in Europe) is no longer sufficient distraction from the fact there is no reinvestment in the people (social infrastructure) necessary to maintain a spine’s healthy posture. Rather government has morphed into a corporate exoskeleton where the people’s ‘representatives’ resemble so many locusts.

The next ‘1st message’ is, when the judiciary altogether abdicates examining the USA’s history of vote fraud (it’s not like this is something that had never happened) in the modern context of hacked computers and malware, it should not be merely anticipated, but expected, there will be a perfectly predictable next act in this regard. In fact there can be no legitimate winners until the computerized vote tally is altogether jettisoned for old fashioned, publicly observed, hand counts of legitimate paper ballots because in fact both sides have a history of vote fraud and now computerized vote fraud. Unfortunately, at this point any authentic vote count is a band-aid fix that could actually intensify/magnify the societal problems in what amounts to a hopelessly sundered republic where the people have been so pervasively lied to, for so long, there are two entirely separate & artificial realities, with either side incapable of grasping neutral facts beyond the borders of their own cultural myths.

The ‘1st message’ after that is, this ain’t over folks. We’re merely (momentarily) lucky it was not ‘the shoe on the other foot.’ If it’d been antifa had stormed the Capitol, they’d have burned it down like a Soros worshiping Tory mob’s ‘liberal democracy’ troops (something that last happened in 1814.) So, then, Trump’s twitter & facebook accounts are suspended when he’s been using social media for asking his supporters to stand down and go home? Do you actually believe, were the shoe on the other foot (the Biden ‘victory’ overturned), antifa would have listened to similar message or Dorsey & ‘Suckerberg’ would have suspended the accounts of Pelosi, Shumer, Biden or Harris?

Now, when the ‘new’ (old guard) insects go after Trump with a vindictive determination and a muzzled Trump cannot say ‘don’t do this’ to his supporters in circumstance where the red states’ conservatives are being driven to a deeply superstitious conservatism of a distant past due to a real subliminal fear of a ‘liberal’ cultural revolution being imposed upon them; and the blue states’ liberals are becoming radicalized into intolerant ‘woke’ because they perceive a revanchist conservatism threat imposing what they consider are archaic social values on themselves in turn, what happens? In the corrupt circumstance of corporate locusts running the government, no matter which side prevails, the police state wins (until it all finally, convincingly & overwhelmingly tears itself apart.)

The King turns to his Vizier and poses a question:

The European League proposes for us to join their economic alliance and adopt their money. What are the benefits versus the detractions?

The Vizier, a European League spy, was uncomfortable, certainly not able to speak freely. To escape the question he said:

Let us ask the Jester.

The Jester:

A king’s corrupt accountant raises a sum from 2,000 to 3,000 and calls this a 50% increase. Then, this same person cuts the sum of 3,000 by one half to arrive at 1,500 and this is called a 50% decrease.

But the 50% increased number can be cut 33-1/3% to arrive at the initial sum of 2,000? Suddenly, like magic, 500 has vanished? Where did it go?

A 50% increase cannot be reversed and equal a 50% decrease in this problem without a deceit, no different to altering the method where reducing 3,000 by 50% equals 1,500 and increasing the 1,500 by 50% equals 2,250; wherein to make the percentages match in actuality and keep the lie out of the numbers should require a 50% increase of 1,500 is 1,500 because the sum of 1,500 becomes precisely 50% of the 3,000.

Would not the more honest approach beg to work with the end sums (actual outcomes) only, where 2,000 can only become 3,000 by a 33-1/3 percentage increase of what had been 2,000 becoming 3,000? In this case a 50% reduction can actually amount to 1,500 without a lie.

If indeed, in practical applications, 50% should bring us to 3,000 from 1,500 but the 50% is labelled 750, arriving at 2,250, into whose pocket did the other 750 potentially vanish? Is the problem semantics only? Or does the European League’s “Transcendent Corruption” accounting math work in a manner similar to method this problem identifies when, for instance, making their fiat currency’s ‘amount in circulation’ grow and diminish or the public tax monies appear and vanish? The ‘assignment of percentage values’ in the European League’s math would appear to allow for nearly any chicanery presented to the King and his people to become a de facto ‘fait accompli’ in ‘good faith’ no matter the sum’s disposition!

The King:

Who can vouch for this?!

The Jester:

Why it is the European League’s spies, Your Majesty, as they state so clearly for you in their many reports’ disclaimer:

“Judgments are not intended to imply that we have proof that shows something to be a fact. Assessments are based on … information which is often incomplete or fragmentary, as well as logic, argumentation, and precedents”

The King:

Turns a murderous expression towards The Vizier…

Illustration: Rand Paul, er, I meant Danny Kay in the film The Court Jester (Paramount)

^ Bellingcat, er, Bill the Cat

Navalny poses as a higher ranking ‘apparatchik’ within Russia’s security services, scrambling to understand what went wrong with the plot to murder (himself) with the nerve agent novichok. He (Navalny) ostensibly has reached one of the foot-soldiers (a Russian intelligence services officer, at his home phone) tasked with carrying out Navalny’s assassination (I would have said you can’t make this shit up except for someone clearly did.) The hoax is audacious.

The 1st problem with Navalny’s ‘hoax call’ reported by Bellingcat is the dates. The 2nd problem is Bellingcat is the reporter. Or, you can switch the order, these are co-equal problems, followed by a 3rd problem that is the call itself.

1) The poisoning happened on 20 August, the ‘hoax call’ is made on 14 December, and released by Bellingcat on 21 December. Now, wait a minute. The context of the call, a desperate demand for answers of what went wrong (Navalny didn’t die) for a report to higher up authority, is something you would expect within the first 48 hours, not nearly three months later. By the time this call was made, that dust should have settled and been vacuumed up by Russia’s intelligence services, everyone would have been debriefed by this time, including the target of the hoax call.

2) Bellingcat is an organization on the point of ‘the Russians did it’ (or the Russians should be held responsible, even if they didn’t do it) world information warfare stage from Syria chemical warfare crimes to MH17 to the Skripal poisoning to (now) Navalny (and whatever else escapes my memory at the moment.)

Every reasonably competent intelligence officer from either side of the ongoing state of warfare between the NATO & NATO associated intelligence agencies, and Russia, perfectly assumes Bellingcat is a front for British intelligence, if they are honest, which is forbidden in this case, if you work for Western intelligence (as well, the CIA might easily request a favor from MI6 and its proxy Bellingcat, time to time.) Of course, if you are Russian, it is not permitted in the liberal democracies to believe anything you have to say (whether truthful or not.)

3) The recorded call itself requires you to believe Russian intelligence officers assigned to assassinations are 85 IQ troglodytes in eternal state of drunk or hungover. That works, if you are a Robert Littell (CIA disinformation) spy novel fan or, alternatively, a 007 freak where Russian intelligence operatives, when it comes to assassinations, are so muscle-bound around the head, there is no space left for brains (having all been squeezed out by steroids, obviously.) But the propaganda ploy works for precisely the subliminal stereotype created in the Western media audience; at many levels we all are conditioned (or attempted to be conditioned) to believe the stereotypes.

At 14 minutes in, there are real questions. He’s too slow & dumb (the FSB guy) he should have been wide awake by now, this all seems scripted. Do we know it is actually the Russian officer on the other end? Rather, is it a MI6 or CIA actor? In the very early stages (long before the 14th minute), the ‘Russian’ intelligence officer should have demanded to make the call himself, calling back from a secure phone to his interrogator (after confirming with his own chain of command), at the least. I can’t believe the Russians are without strict protocol training in this regard. The so-called ‘Konstantin Kudryavtsev’ (a real person but certainly not the person in the call) is too stupid, by far, to demand this obviously important security protocol, and that stupidity is covered by the very fact of discussing ‘a secure line’ while posing him as half-awake & consequently ‘snookered.’ But even a hungover and half-awake 85 IQ (if such ever existed in the FSB, not likely) should grasp violating this protocol while running his mouth could find him hung upside down in chains in the basement of the Lubyanka (FSB Headquarters in Moscow) while his bosses decided what would become of him. This raises a related issue; why would someone who’d so famously screwed up a hit still be on the job? The entire business stinks from the beginning.

Then, at 18 minutes in, the ‘Russian’ troglodyte is volunteering via unsecured line a local investigative chief’s phone number to a ‘superior officer’ (Navalny’s alias) that prior to this call he has never even heard of:

It just goes downhill from there…

The concluding question should be, did Nalvany understand he had been talking to a Western intelligence asset/actor? The answer would be “probably not.” Narcissists are brilliant material for intelligence agency manipulations, in this case of Western intelligence engineering (from the outset) Nalvany being of greater value as an information operations asset in Berlin as opposed to a perpetually failed color revolutionary in Russia.

Satirized information for the seasoned cynic:

DIY is the American acronym for ‘do it yourself.’ Now, sit down before you go on to read what follows; where reality mocks sanity.

Firstly, anyone reading here can go to any search engine and order ‘do it yourself’ [diy] gene editing kits. Enter “diy gene editing” and what do you know! What used to be the province of scientific labs at universities is history, last century, passé, done and over with. A bright 17 year old with wealthy and disconnected parents can, these days, set up a world class equipped, home laboratory in the basement of his house and create what could amount to a military grade bio-weapons facility.

Yep. Been worried about what DARPA might do? So dated, out-of fashion, these days any wealthy kid with an IQ of 150, left to raise himself up to be a sociopath, can do what was proposed at the Pentagon [link to original post prior to plausible information war determined to debunk it] a scant 15 years ago; genetically edit religious conviction out of the future:

Ooooh… those naughty scientists at wooohan were so careless to let the genie out of the geopolitical bottle, er, I meant let Bat-woman do the big no-no… when actuality is, it could be (these days) any pissed off bright person with a bit of money and biological know-how and an ax to grind with humanity can make mass shooters look like your typically ignorant school yard bully… and f***ing harmless by comparison. In fact (except for its creator) nobody knows for certain and most likely we’ll never know with absolute certainty where Covid 19 actually came from. All we do know is, it looks like it was made in a lab, kitchen, basement or garage.

Yes, folks, that’s what Cartesian-Platonic civilization’s ‘thirst to know’ has brought us all to (Western science is the story of Pandora’s Box) while our political bosses are running us all off a cliff like lemmings; enabling their corrupt buddies at big pharma to take advantage of ’emergency use authorizations’ generating vast amounts of filthy lucre with even more experimental gene editing .. the only fit for lab rats mRNA gene therapies created by scientists not nearly so bright as our world’s angry kids.

Either one could kill us all –

“Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as cooperation with the good” -Mahatma Ghandi

“There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians, it’s outrageous, this is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public”

This expert (speaking at a public meeting), and it is worth the listen, says that masks are only good for virtue signalling, that the lock-downs are counter-productive madness, covid amounts to nothing more than a bad flu and that’s exactly how it should be treated (stay home from work, take warm soup & don’t visit the elderly), politics playing medicine is driving panic, only the vulnerable (e.g. care home residents) should be protected & 3 to 5 thousand IU of vitamin D daily reduces their chances of clinical covid dramatically, people under the age of 65 have a one in three hundred thousand chance of dying from the disease, and that testing is worthless because positives DO NOT indicate there will be a clinical case and in precise quotation the testing is “driving public hysteria.”

At just over five minutes, it is really worth a listen:

Transcript:

“This is Dr. Hodkinson, I just wanted to let you know I’m standing by.

“OK, well we would love to hear from you, the floor is yours.

“Thank you very much. I do appreciate the opportunity to address you on this very important matter. What I’m going to say is lay language, and blunt. It is counter-narrative, and so you don’t immediately think I’m a quack, I’m going to briefly outline my credentials so that you can understand where I’m coming from in terms of knowledge base in all of this.

“I’m a medical specialist in pathology which includes virology. I trained at Cambridge University in the UK. I’m the ex-president of the pathology section of the Medical Association. I was previously an assistant professor in the Faculty of Medicine doing a lot of teaching. I was the chairman of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada Examination Committee and Pathology in Ottawa, but more to the point I’m currently the chairman of a biotechnology company in North Carolina selling the COVID-19 test.

“And I might, you might say, I know a little bit about all of this. The bottom line is simply this: There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians. It’s outrageous. This is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public. There is absolutely nothing that can be done to contain this virus. Other than protecting older, more vulnerable people. It should be thought of as nothing more than a bad flu season. This is not Ebola. It’s not SARS. It’s politics playing medicine and that’s a very dangerous game.

“There is no action of any kind needed other than what happened last year when we felt unwell. We stayed home, we took chicken noodle soup, we didn’t visit granny and we decided when we would return to work. We didn’t need anyone to tell us.

“Masks are utterly useless. There is no evidence base for their effectiveness whatsoever. Paper masks and fabric masks are simply virtue-signaling. They’re not even worn effectively most of the time. It’s utterly ridiculous. Seeing these unfortunate, uneducated people — I’m not saying that in a pejorative sense — seeing these people walking around like lemmings, obeying without any knowledge base, to put the mask on their face.

“Social distancing is also useless because COVID is spread by aerosols which travel 30 meters or so before landing. Enclosures have had such terrible unintended consequences. Everywhere should be opened tomorrow as well as was stated in the Great Barrington Declaration that I circulated prior to this meeting.

“And a word on testing: I do want to emphasize that I’m in the business of testing for COVID. I do want to emphasize that positive test results do not, underlined in neon, mean a clinical infection. It’s simply driving public hysteria and all testing should stop. Unless you’re presenting to the hospital with some respiratory problem.

“All that should be done is to protect the vulnerable and to give them all in the nursing homes that are under your control, give them all 3,000 to 5,000 international units of vitamin D every day which has been shown to radically reduce the likelihood of Infection.

“And I would remind you all that using the province’s own statistics, the risk of death under 65 in this province is one in 300,000. One in 300,000. You’ve got to get a grip on this.

“The scale of the response that you are undertaking with no evidence for it is utterly ridiculous given the consequences of acting in a way that you’re proposing. All kinds of suicides, business closures, funerals, weddings etc. It’s simply outrageous! It’s just another bad flu and you’ve got to get your minds around that.

“Let people make their own decisions. You should be totally out of the business of medicine. You’re being led down the garden path by the chief medical officer of health for this province. I am absolutely outraged that this has reached this level. It should all stop tomorrow.

“Thank you very much”

As a ‘social scientist’ (of sorts) the study I would like to see is on how mass social hysteria (an induced ‘societal-wide’ panic attack) methylates entire peoples’ DNA, damaging their immune function, almost certainly greatly aggravating the numbers of people presenting with serious infections. As well, nothing quite like ignorance effectively preparing populations to be even more susceptible for the next pandemic, eh? [1]

Meanwhile, let’s all be good boys & girls, keep the ignorant nanny state politicians happy so they have no excuses to double-down on their idiocy, i.e. play by the rules dictated by our rulers until they can find their gonads and sanity returns (sooner or later, the idiots should be able to sort ‘It’s the economy, Mr or Ms Stupid MP’), and most of all don’t let fear drive you into a worse social circumstance than that already created.

At nearly 70 years, I don’t need this infection but I also don’t need ‘increased measures’ (social controls), especially if I have had the virus already and gotten over it like any other bad cold.

23 Nov update:

“In their ruling, judges … referred to several scientific studies. Most notably this study by Jaafar et al., which found that – when running PCR tests with 35 cycles or more – the accuracy dropped to 3%, meaning up to 97% of positive results could be false positives. The ruling goes on to conclude that, based on the science they read, any PCR test using over 25 cycles is totally unreliable. Governments and private labs have been very tight-lipped about the exact number of cycles they run when PCR testing, but it is known to sometimes be as high as 45″

“It is the habit of mankind to entrust to careless hope what they long for, and to use sovereign reason to thrust aside what they would prefer not to examine” -Thucydides

*

Decolonization as envisioned by the United Nations is (in real effect) little more than a self-serving Western propaganda ploy; assuaging ego where there is in fact little wider social consciousness of what (and what has not) been accomplished. To achieve de facto (authentic) decolonization, to begin, this should require the decolonization of the psyche of those ‘indigenous’ populations educated into Western way of thinking. This would be no mean task!

When the colonizing powers ‘withdrew’ and ‘lip-serviced’ (should sound like political fellatio) ‘the right of self determination of peoples’ … they left intact unnatural colonial borders that in any case DID NOT respect the purported right of self-determination, rather put in place multiple Western infected national psyches within so-called ‘indigenous’ leadership determined to (more often than not) behave like Whitemen (Western European mentality.) This has further created numerous cases of social friction across the globe, particularly concerning so-called ‘minorities.’

The related ‘meme of democracy’ has accomplished the following few examples of too many examples to list in one short article:

The largest stateless ‘minority’ in the world (5,000,000 compared to ‘sovereign’ Montenegro’s 500,000), that is the Kurds, are in (varying degrees of) conflict with Iran, Iraq, Syria and (not least) Turkey, due to persisting colonial borders. This leaves the Kurd population open (across several vectors) to murderous geopolitical (read intelligence agency) manipulations in endless iterations (most recently by the USA & Israel.)

In the so-called ‘international law’ (a Western developed concept) Azerbaijan is allowed an Azerbaijani majority exclave, Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic, separated by the territory of Armenia, but Armenia is NOT allowed an Armenian majority exclave, Nagorno-Karabakh, separated by the territory of Azerbaijan. Common sense calls this hypocrisy. Common people adhere to common sense and the Armenian common sense is cynically exploited in Ottoman imperial style geopolitical machinations:

So, what would be the point of common sense (a gift of our creator) in the view of those who propose to rule us? I doubt they could answer this question in any sensible (read honest) way for the fact there is no sensible or (especially) altruistic justification of the preceding. Any honest answer would have to take in account incompetence, greed & political-cultural narcissism (imperial arrogance) often prohibits the de facto right of self determination of peoples, any pretensions of decolonization at the United Nations notwithstanding.

In light of the preceding, just suppose (a laughable fantasy) the West were to take up Russia on an offer to repeat the plebiscite in Crimea with international observers; a plebiscite is the most democratic of all democratic principles. The obvious outcome would be (and why the ‘democratic’ West would never agree to this proposition) Crimeans would overwhelmingly (again) exercise their right of self determination to join the Russian Federation. Furthermore, the whole (majority ethnic Russian) East of Ukraine might then demand equal right to determine its own future and wellah, suddenly Putin’s Russian borders extend West to the Dnieper River. The Western states insistence Crimea remain a part of Ukraine is a case of the West maintaining a stance of ‘democracy for me, but not for thee.’

Meanwhile, the crude Spanish judicial system (dominated by judges aligned with the Popular Party, a political legacy of Franco) has jailed and continues to bring to trial those Catalan separatists who dared do what? They held a plebiscite (that most democratic of all democratic principles) to separate Catalonia from Spain (a state that has historically treated the Catalans as lackeys only fit to lick the Spanish boot.)

To keep this short, we’ll jump to Kosovo; where the Western states (NATO & the EU) has determined Serbia is not fit to govern a minority (of ethnic Albanians) on their own territory but the now purported (by the West) independent Kosovo is fit to govern a minority (of ethnic Serbs.) Never mind the inconvenient fact that recent Kosovo ‘leaders’ are being arrested and delivered to international tribunal for crimes against ethnic Serbs (includes organ harvesting), also not to mention the 250,000 Serbs driven from Kosovo in an ethnic cleansing pogrom following the NATO bombing of Serbia. Hey! Isn’t that just the sort of act the bombing was supposed to stop? NATO ‘just allowed’ that to happen when they’d grabbed control? Huh. Maybe that Albanian ‘majority’ wasn’t statistically big enough to justify an independent Kosovo (and secure Kosovo a ‘right’ to host Camp Bondsteel.)

All of this follows on a few historical facts overlooked by the Western propaganda machine; Eastern Orthodoxy’s majority Serbian population in the region of Srpska Krajina recently (90s Balkan Wars) ethnically cleansed from Catholic Croatia by “Operation Storm” (never mind the Serbs have been made the boogeyman for everything that went wrong with the breakup of Yugoslavia), as well the fact unnatural ethnic borders have been enforced in relation to Republik Srpska, ensuring there will be ongoing tensions within Bosnia on the border of Serbia and not least, the remnant Serb majority region in the North of Kosovo is denied their right of self determination to join with Serbia, ensuring perpetual inter-ethnic conflict that serves only to weaken the institutions of state via ongoing radicalization of both populations, Orthodox Christian Serb and Muslim Albanian. Europe couldn’t do a better job of promoting a war of civilizations if it had actually tried, if one were to presume it is mere incompetence derived from ego-narcissism has birthed this circumstance into the present. But maybe it is more than that, a weakened state with artificial borders is ‘low hanging fruit’ posing possibility of consolidating control over a region culturally tied to Russia (as well historically coveted by the Catholic headquarters at Rome.)

Finally, it must be noted that, similar to the Sioux Indians had founded their culture upon a spiritual relationship to the Black Hills of South Dakota from which they had been expelled, Serbia’s relationship to “Old Serbia” (Kosovo) is little different; but imperial ambition had seen the Serbs ethnically cleansed by the Albanians on multiple occasions, first under the ‘patronage’ of the Ottoman Turks, then the Albanians were backed in further pursuing pogroms against Serbs by the fascist Axis powers of World War II (similar to Croatian Ustasha persecution of Serbs during the war) and finally a coup de grace of sorts was delivered by communism under Tito, who forbade ethnic Serbs to return to their homes in Kosovo following 1945. [1]

The epilogue to all of this would be the colonizing of Serbia by the European Union at the point of a gun:

Maybe the title of this piece should have been ‘Recolonization.’

Posted on the 1,628th anniversary of Theodosius of Rome passing legislation prohibiting all pagan worship in the empire –

The letter this essay introduces, goes to the subject of the differing social psychology of the Orthodox and Western Christian worlds; where perceptions are impacted by the actual and imagined actions of others.

The Orthodox world does (in this reporter’s estimation) extend a much greater trust to those adversaries it must negotiate with; for the simple fact of a principle of ‘unity’ or perhaps better said, a lesser focus on the individual with a greater focus on the larger social good. This primacy of a consolidated belief that contracts (say what you mean and mean what you say) will be honestly negotiated and should honored stems from a very different perception of this world than that of the West in general. This likely stems from an ‘incomplete split’ of the Orthodox psyche where…

[Orthodox priest/scientist/inventor] “Florenskii’s theology reflected a complex, nuanced monism and cosmological integrality. Vseedinstvo [complete unity] was everywhere he looked. The “diversity of the universe, enclosed in unity, indicates a united, free, creative Will.” The source of Truth is unity: “If there is Truth, then it is real rationality and rational reality; it is finite infinity and infinite finiteness, or, – to put it mathematically, – actual infinity; infinite, conceivable as an integral Unity, as a single, complete Subject in itself.” Truth, Good, and Beauty are metaphysically one process, originating from one source: God. For Florenskii, Truth (Istina), defined as action serving God or others, leads to unity, and sin and the absence of truth lead to disunity. Anthropocentric and egoistic action goes against God and destroys unity: “Self-affirmation of the personality, its opposition to God is the source of fragmentation, disintegration of the personality, impoverishment of its inner life; and only love, yes to a certain degree, again brings the personality into unity.” All love – plutonic, familial, and sexual – comes from God. Sin causes the “soul to lose its substantive unity.” “Chastity is simplicity, that is organic unity, or, again, integrity of the personality.” Perversion and an absence of shame are “duality”, “non-unity, non-integrality.” At the same time, sin also has unity if only imaginary in nature: “Sin is unstable in itself. The unity of impurity is imaginary, and the illusory nature of this false unity is revealed as soon as it is forced to come face to face with Good. Uncleanness is one – as long as there is no Pure One, but just the approach of the Pure throws off the mask of unity from it (uncleanness).” “The providence of God and the freedom of creation, being antonyms, constitute one dogma – the dogma of God’s love for creation, which has its basis in the idea of ​​God-Love, that is, of the Divine Trinity.” Bringing reason back in, seemingly, Florenskii regards the study of the “unity of creation” as “the precondition for science.”” [1]

The difference to the Western Christian is stark; where “the dogma of God’s love for creation” is practically unknown & unheard of, rather the rationalized individual’s freedom to plunder (subliminally derived from “the Earth is cursed for thy sake” of Genesis) that has transformed into ‘prosperity gospel’ is emphasized. Indeed, in the annals of the USA, were one to look for a similarity to the unity of Florenskii’s thinking, one should step out of the Western Christian experience to find it; in the Deism of Thomas Paine:

“…in Deism our reason and our belief become happily united. The wonderful structure of the universe, and everything we behold in the system of the creation, prove to us, far better than books can do, the existence of a God, and at the same time proclaim His attributes. It is by the exercise of our reason that we are enabled to contemplate God in His works, and imitate Him in His ways. When we see His care and goodness extended over all His creatures, it teaches us our duty toward each other, while it calls forth our gratitude to Him”

In fact the American Christian nearly universally, ungratefully, demonized and rejected Paine, the philosopher previously credited for America’s success in acquiring independence by motivating the populace to noble thoughts, for his essay “Of The Religion of Deism Compared With the Christian Religion”, from which the preceding paragraph is taken.

Should it, now, surprise anyone, when it is posited the social psychology of Eastern and Western Christianity is fundamentally different? When the Westerner speaks out both sides of his mouth, the typical Easterner can only read one side or the other; when meeting with outstretched hand to greet, the Westerner’s first instinct is to look for the other hand, to discover whether it conceals a knife destined to one’s back; whereas the Easterner takes the outstretched hand as a gesture that should only be met with sincerity, without duplicity. When East meets West, the West takes advantage reflected in the Western cynical folk wisdom “it was like taking candy from a baby.” This is what Russia’s Yeltsen experienced and it is what Russia’s Putin nearly experienced. Now it is Serbia’s experience.

Putin, over the course of his first seven years, extended his hand on multiple occasions, but was met on every occasion with a middle finger or a knife. It was only in his 2007 speech at Munich, Putin stated ‘enough is enough.’ Seven years is a long time to learn the Western geopolitic does not respect its’ agreements and in every interaction where there are not outright insults when rejecting sincerely offered partnership, there will be a concealed knife. [2]

In relation to his unswerving support for Alexandar Vucic, who is in process of surrendering Kosovo with what amounts to negotiating a quit-claim deed concerning the Serbian territory at the international level, the Patriarch appears to upholding contradictions, unless he’d not been presented the facts in a fully informed way. The unkind (Western perception) would be (a subverted monastic mentality) the Patriarch is complicit in the proposed crimes of Vucic but what it actually is, is an inability to comprehend a Serbian president would blatantly lie to the people and the head of Serbia’s Orthodox church, however this thought has two possible tracks; accounting for the possibility Vucic would lie to himself, in Western psychology this is called a “denial mechanism” (which carries the same practical outcome.) This observation derives from, prima facie, conflicting statements of Serbia’s Patriarch:

“”For eight years I have been listening about Vučić’s preparing to betray Kosovo”

“He [the Patriarch] also asked if it made sense to “convict a man for something he did not do, just because some think he will do it.”

“”Vucic has tackled the numerous problems of Kosovo. He has shown himself to be a responsible statesman on many national issues. The citizens gave their opinion on his work in the elections,” [Serbian Patriarch] Irinej told Vecernje Novosti.

“He added that he thinks that Serbs and Albanians should be left to agree on everything on their own without imposing a “solution” in favor of only one side. “In that respect, the United States can play a great and historical role,” the patriarch said” [3]

Clearly the Patriarch does not grasp the duplicitous nature of the USA, also he does not grasp the entire affair Vucic is negotiating with the Americans and Europe has to do with surrendering Serbia’s sovereignty over Kosovo; and if Vucic himself were to claim he was not cognizant of what he is signing away, it should defy belief. Moreover, the Serbian Orthodox position is clarified at the official Serbian Orthodox Church website:

“His Holiness Irinej, Serbian Patriarch has said today that the only agreement that the Serbian Orthodox Church accepts is the one in which Kosovo is part of Serbia.

“”That is absolutely the position of the Church, and nothing has changed there. We will still see in which direction the negotiations between the Serbian and Albanian sides are going, we are still getting to know the matter, “said Patriarch Irinej, commenting on the negotiations that took place between Belgrade and Pristina in the previous days” [4]

This could be aggravated by the possibility Vucic himself is not fully informed as to the implications of what he had done (signed the so-called ‘economic normalization’ agreement) in a context of international law. Another practical outcome is (the fact) Vucic has violated the ‘Kosovo clause’ of the Serbian constitution (whether he realizes this or not.) However international law very likely won’t concern itself with this ‘domestic matter’ but will examine the facts of what the duly elected/appointed Serbian officials have conducted in matters of international relations only.

Finally, there is the possibility of information provided to the Patriarch is culled or otherwise curtailed or presented in such a way as to deceive and ultimately shape his perception away from the holistic (aggregate) facts (per Catholic or blackmailed or bought agents of influence within the church.)

But overall, the greatest deficiency is the differing social psychology, where the Eastern perception cannot easily or fluently grasp the depth of the Western duplicity. This should likely be very true for the Patriarch. A kinder interpretation would extend this naivety to Vucic but if this were the case, it should demonstrate his advisors had failed him at every level.

How the social psychology plays out with the majority of Serbians supporting Vucic is profoundly different to that of the Western democratic tradition; Serbia, very similar to Russia, had precisely ZERO Western democratic tradition prior the end of the Twentieth Century and in fact both peoples are conditioned to authoritarian regimes based in a principled unity, this is literally recorded into the Serbian genetic memory. Vucic behaves as a king, and the Serbian people behave as though Vucic were indeed a king. It is ingrained in the DNA. When Vucic appoints ministers, they behave as Dukes & Lords and the people largely accept this. The Russians are lucky, their Tsar Putin is an enlightened despot with the best interests of the Russian people at the core of his being. He keeps his Dukes & Lords on a leash, they cannot loot Russia with impunity, that door of opportunity for the most ill behaved oligarchs (Dukes & Lords) was slammed shut in the year 2000. Putin the man understands his people’s psychology and he has played the (fraught with danger) intrigues of court quite well. Meanwhile, Serbia cannot afford a King Yeltsin; Yeltsin did not, most likely actually could not, grasp the depth of the Western evil that had extended its’ hand to him, and his Dukes & Lords possessed no self restraint. The West could not swallow & digest Russia quickly enough to get away with it, the proposed feast was too large. The necessity of Serbia finding competent leadership is even more compelling; as Western corporate neo-colonialism aggressively moves to swallow & digest what it actually fears in a paradox of subliminal psychology; the unity principle in Orthodoxy opposed to individualism.

“Revelation” in real time has been noted on many occasions in the simple, uneducated Orthodox Serb villager, as opposed to the perfectly psychotic ‘visions’ (manipulations) of the mass psychology in Western Christianity.

In respect to this, it should be noted the Orthodox (unlike Rome) did not burn alive everyone daring to express the intuitive intelligence resembling the oracles of paganism. In the West, the genetic memory (potential) indicative of intuitive skill born of the Universe’s unity principle had been largely stamped out. The resultant Western ‘split’ became irrevocable; beyond the Heavens and Earth, this split separated the hemispheres of the human brain to the micro-level, and points to a final, literal, dis-integration.

The ultimate fallacy of this Cartesian-Platonic ‘objective’ reality (one example only) is demonstrated in the inability of the Western scientist to grasp the simple progression of the events that had shaped him; beginning with a world of ‘unity intelligence’ denied by Plato, Plato’s adoption by Western Christianity and the consequent necessary schism that had to manifest with Plato’s uncompromising divorce of intuitive intelligence from ‘practical’ matters (logos), leading to an individualism so severe that a newly discovered & unnatural atheism eloped with Western science; becoming a mind-set so extreme that, when a brilliant mind shaped by a culture not yet divested of its’ unity intelligence points his thinking to what had been (in ancient era) the obvious, what will the Western scientific canon do with demonstrable evidence its’ culture is not compatible with its’ pretensions of ‘empirical’ understanding of our experience? (and certainly not compatible with actual reality.) Vitaly Vanchurin, a theoretical physicist, in his paper “The World as a Neural Network” proposes:

“We discuss a possibility that the entire universe on its most fundamental level is a neural network…” [5]

I suppose it should not come as a surprise it would be a Russian, shaped in his intelligence by a culturally inculcated principle of unity, that would explore physics in this direction. But should it be so shocking if it were to be discovered the Human brain simply mirrored (is an organic model of) the universe?

But my own take would be the likely related fascination with unity in Orthodoxy has its roots in pre-Christian beliefs, again noting the Orthodox church, unlike Rome, did not burn alive everyone manifesting intuitive intelligence resembling pagan beliefs. My observation, living in Serbia, is the Orthodox Serb villager is often pagan in custom if not name. And it is herein lie the root of the Western animus to the Orthodox Slav, a subliminal, deep, psychological terror of a unity principle that should reveal the greater Western culture is, in and of itself, incompatible with its’ pretensions.

Hypocrisy never sensed itself so vulnerable. How should the Orthodox Slav meet the problem of confronted with a fear so penetrating & abiding, the West must feel compelled to destroy every manifestation of that which is self-aware in a principle of unity? A Serbian King who cannot expertly ponder this question is worse than without value, for the simple fact ‘the long game’ of the West is the Orthodox of the Balkans will be subverted to Eastern Rite Catholicism, little different to the ‘Catholicized’ (Eastern Rite Catholic answering to Rome) Ruthenian of Western Ukraine (‘gifting the world’ with a legacy of Stephan Bandera’s SS Galacian & the subsequent Nazis of the 2014 Maidan in Kiev.)

If the West has its’ way in these matters, after the first indigenous generation of Western educated Serbs rise to power in Serbia, there will be no one left to read this essay with a deep understanding; already demonstrated by those Serbians colonized/co-opted into the western canon of knowledge at foreign university who no longer can feel unity, taste unity, or know the social aroma of unity, for the fact they have no avenue (mental capacity) to ‘enter’ unity, and the true Serb mentality consequently can only be viewed negatively in their drive to enter the EU.

We already see this phenomena manifest in Prime Minister Brnabic, the American and British educated (BBA diploma of the Northwood University and MBA of the University of Hull) Brnabic has been tied to various consulting companies implementing USAID policies in Serbia (recalling USAID’s history as an umbrella for several organizations promoting color revolution.) Would Brnabic be a willing and/or complicit intelligence agency asset? She doesn’t need to be, Western mentality has co-opted her mind via education and she is consequently perfect material for unwitting manipulation. She will be used accordingly:

“The government I am proposing is pro-European”

“The prime minister-designate said it was important for her to stress how pro-European the new government was.

“”Our task is to accelerate the process of European integration in the coming period. Changing the Constitution of the Republic of Serbia in the field of justice is a necessary step in further strengthening the rule of law and further harmonization with the European acquis and European standards,” she said.

“She announced support for changes to the Constitution in the field of justice.

“”In the previous mandate, the Government of Serbia, after extensive public consultations that lasted a little over 18 months, as well as consultations and support of the Venice Commission, sent an initiative to the Assembly to change the Constitution so that our society has a judiciary that is independent of any influence. We will continue to support changes to the Constitution in the area of ​​justice in order to find the best solutions for our legal system,” she said.

“She points out that it is important for our society to have a judiciary that is independent of all political influences, but also much more efficient and responsible towards citizens.

“Regulating media sphere

“When it comes to the media sphere, the Media Strategy for the period until 2025 was adopted, she reminds.

“The government, she says, did the job in partnership with media and journalists’ associations, whose representatives made up half of the members of the Working Group for drafting the Media Strategy.

“According to Brnabić, the transparency and inclusiveness of the whole process were supported by partners from the OSCE Mission to Serbia, the EU Delegation to Serbia, the Embassy of the Kingdom of Norway and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.

“She adds that the same working group continued to work on the Action Plan for the implementation of the strategy, which, as she points out, will be one of the first documents on the agenda of the new government” [6]

What we have here (the cynical western perception or ‘knife held behind the back’) appears to be Vucic, who ‘lip services’ the Slav ethic, assuages the Patriarch and makes friendly noises in the direction of Russia, has handed the ‘dirty work’ of European integration to Brnabic. The afore-mentioned OSCE is penetrated by Western intelligence to point of poisoning the entire organization, the EU Delegation speaks for the EU’s primary or controlling power (that would be Germany) and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation is nothing short of a LITERALLY Nazi infected front for the German foreign intelligence service Bundesnachrichtendienst. [7]

In fact this is identical direction the USA is pushing for, per the American Embassy’s website mission statement concerning Serbia:

“As U.S. Ambassador, Anthony F. Godfrey leads the U.S. Government’s efforts to advance its partnership with Serbia, expand economic prosperity, and assist Serbia’s efforts for European integration. It is in the strategic interest of the United States that Serbia develops as a modern, democratic, and prosperous European nation that is at peace with its neighbors and demonstrates full respect for the rule of law and rights of its citizens. Helping our Serbian partners to strengthen their democratic institutions, protect the rights of members of minority communities, combat corruption, and improve media freedom are key areas for Ambassador Godfrey and his team. Supporting Serbia’s goal of EU membership and regional stability by promoting the normalization of relations between Pristina and Belgrade is a top priority for Ambassador Godfrey” [8]

In fact Godfrey’s decades career as an embassy “political officer” leaves little room to doubt his is the USA Department of State’s Siamese twin Central Intelligence Agency role in a senior capacity; perhaps better stated, likely the top CIA official in Belgrade, following on:

“He [Godfrey] served from 2015 to 2019 as Political Minister Counselor, and then Deputy Chief of Mission, at U.S. Embassy Moscow, Russia”

Could (the kinder view) Vucic be so naive a Slav mentality as to be utterly unaware of the treasonous (to the Orthodox Slav mentality) dynamic he has trapped himself in? It’s theoretically possible, Yeltsin was apparently so naive, but this must be doubted in the case of Vucic, whose many conversations with the Russians following the Yeltsin era (Putin & Lavrov, particularly) should have disabused him of any such innocence. However the innocence of Serbian Patriarch is plausibly a different matter:

Letter to the Serbian Patriarch

Dear Office of the Honorable Serbian Patriarch

I am a non-Orthodox father of Serbian citizen children. I am not a Christian but hold a profound respect for the historical Jesus. My beliefs are shaped in a pre-Columbian (pre-Christian) Native American tradition, a tradition nearly extinguished by the Western church (Catholicism, particularly.) Consequently, I approach Christianity with caution, because my cultural shaping cannot reconcile many of the admirable principles Jesus had taught with contrary acts construed to be ‘Christian.’

In Europe, I have discovered ‘truth’ is often a malleable thing, particularly in relation to geopolitics. The prima facie result appears to be ‘truth’ is often presented in ways that are not clean; whether partial truths, or alternatively stated, misaligned facts presented that actually become deceits. These deceits might stem from human frailties of psychology (e.g. self deceits) or derive from more perverse source; servicing a lower temporal nature.

It is my present opinion (as my understanding of the Orthodox church grows) that the church in the East should never become so cynical as that headquartered at Rome; where my perception as a past intelligence professional leads me to believe certain recent events in Montenegro indicate (at least in part) a Rome initiated gambit pointed towards an attempted targeting this region of the Orthodox church with the long term aim of converting the Montenegrin Orthodox faithful into Eastern Rite Catholics. But I digress from the point of my writing to you today. This immediate (preceding) point is made simply to say if I see Catholicism as duplicitous and corrupt (I do), I presently entertain no animosity towards Orthodoxy. Rome would have burned alive the Serb villagers for certain habits stemming from ancient times (our native experience had been similar to this) and it is to the credit of Orthodoxy this has not been the case in Serbia. I sincerely thank you for this, on behalf of my Serbian children.

This message is not to intended to criticize Orthodoxy, even if there were philosophical elements possibly we would never agree upon; for instance I have shaped my children in the direction of secular ethics but also intend they will have a sympathetic understanding of Orthodoxy in a Serbian historical context. My own belief is, having lived outside the laws of Judeo-Christian monotheism, I expect I will be judged according to my life in the awareness of my understanding of our creator, ‘The Great Mystery’, no man can fathom; except to know it is better to be good than bad, honest dealings with our fellow man & truthful reporting are the correct road to follow, and at the end, it is better to die than to compromise one’s ethics and cleanliness of one’s mind. In this regard, it should be noted our native teaching “you have to correct your mistakes” requires forgiveness can only manifest after self-correction; the one cannot precede the other. This lived (original native philosophy) demands some compromises are never to be entertained because it is better to surrender one’s life rather than indelibly dirty the clean light of one’s spirit. It is in this frame of thinking we meditate.

Now to the point of this communication; concerning Alexandar Vucic and his recent (September) trip to Washington, DC. I fear your offices have been misinformed, misled or have in some great sense misunderstood the chicanery the Americans engaged in. What President Vucic signed was in fact a de facto capitulation per the rule of reciprocity in international law.

I admire the Serbian Patriarch’s demand repatriation of Kosovo’s displaced Serb population must be the 1st point addressed prior to discussion of any other issue; yet there remains a great danger in any misapprehension of the “Economic Normalization” agreement President Vucic signed. I could not imagine there would be a developing circumstance of the child shouting “The emperor has no clothes!” but in fact any competent lawyer (with courage) should be able to effect the point of this folk wisdom. It should be better to self-correct in this regard than to experience a greater humiliation.

If in August I had thought ‘Serbia could do much worse than Alexandar Vucic’, in October my thinking is Alexandar Vucic should have done much better for Serbia. The American charlatans had tricked him like a child.

I have attached an assessment in this matter of the “Economic Normalization” agreement translated to Serbian; as well this letter has been translated for your perusal.

With kindest regards

Ronald West
