U.S. and Ukraine are already secretly preparing for the all-out war with Russia that they intend to make happen.

The U.S. and Ukraine are secretly preparing for all-out war while advancing propaganda to make it appear that Russia is the aggressor. Diplomatic talks in Geneva by the U.S. and Russia have failed to alleviate tensions because the U.S. refused to adhere to Russia’s demand that Ukraine “never, never ever” become a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman stated that the U.S. would “not allow anyone to slam closed NATO’s Open Door policy.”

Since the February 2014 Maidan coup—where worshippers of Nazi collaborators Stepan Bandera overthrew Ukraine’s democratically elected pro-Russian leader Viktor Yanukovych—the U.S. has provided $2.5 billion in military aid to the Ukrainians, including $450 million in 2021 alone. (Since 2014, the EU has provided 17 billion euros to Kyiv!)

This aid has included 100 Javelin rocket launchers and at least 500 rockets, along with training in their use.

Other NATO countries, including Canada, UK, Poland and Turkey have provided weapons, training and intelligence. Turkey has provided Bayraktir attack drones, and instructors, and both the Javelins and the drones have been used in combat against the Donbass Republics’ defense forces.

Ukraine itself has recently required women between the ages of 18 and 60 to register for the draft, including pregnant women and mothers with young children. Meanwhile, NATO already has 13,000 troops, 200 tanks, 400 APCs and 3 dozen aircraft and helicopters stationed in Eastern Europe, and there are currently 10,000 NATO “instructors” in Ukraine (including 4,000 from the United States). In early December, the Greek port of Alexandroupolis received the largest shipment of U.S. military equipment in its history, including helicopters, UAVs, tanks, IFVs and artillery for the annual NATO exercise “Atlantic Resolve.”

US and Ukraine continue preparations for assault on Donbass Republics

In early December, the water of the Severdonetsk River—which supplies more than 90% of the municipal tap water to all major cities of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in eastern Ukraine (as well as major cities of Donetsk Oblast under Ukrainian control)—was contaminated by chemical and biological agents from sources in Kharkov and Slavyansk.

This contamination—augmented by “fracking” in the areas of Donetsk Oblast under Ukrainian control—has resulted in the tap water of the DPR being unsuitable for cooking or drinking.

Contamination and/or denial of drinking water for civilian populations constitutes a “grave breach,” and thus qualifies as a war crime, under both the Nuremberg Tribunal Charter and the Fourth Geneva Convention.[1]

The chemical attack on the Severdonetsk River is not the only chemical and biological threat against the Donbass Republics by Ukraine and its Western sponsors.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu reported on reported on December 21st that 120 U.S. mercenaries received deliveries of chemical weapons in the Ukrainian occupied frontline cities of Avdeevka and Krasny Liman for use in a possible false-flag attack that could be blamed on Russia.

Press Secretary of the DPR Defense Ministry Eduard Basurin confirmed that Ukraine had received several batches of toxic substances, botulinum toxin and an antidote to it from the U.S.

He stated:

Various types of chemical weapons were brought to Ukraine. In October, one of the shipments contained an antidote against botulinum toxin. In November, the chemical itself was delivered. It can be used with grenade launchers. The weight is small. It can be dropped from drones, and Ukraine has been using shock drones all the time lately. 

In addition, “Another container weighing 300 kilograms was delivered to Mariupol by sea, where there was a chemical warfare agent—dibenzoxazepine, which is used in the form of an aerosol.”

In the southern sector of the Front, near Mariupol, citizens of the frontline village Granitnoye have reported Ukrainian soldiers in full chemical/biological protective suits unloading containers.

These reports do not bode well for a peaceful settlement of the conflict in Ukraine which threatens to expand into a full-fledged war involving the U.S. and Russia.

The reports bring to mind the widely and completely debunked and exposed multiple false-flag attacks by (U.S. and NATO-backed) ISIS terrorists in Syria, in which innocent civilians were slaughtered in order to use them in “White Helmet” propaganda videos, falsely blaming the mass murders on chemical attacks by the legitimate Syrian government.[2]

Diplomatic Option—Will the Biden Administration Pursue It?

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov have said multiple times that Russia is prepared to use military force if either its citizens in Donbass or its strategic national interests are further threatened by Ukraine or NATO.

Russia, however, first has proposed a diplomatic solution that the U.S. appears to be rejecting.

On December 17, 2021, Russia published a draft of a pair of treaties for mutual security guarantees between Russia, the U.S. and NATO, with eight specific articles, the first of which is a demand for equal recognition of the security interests of both countries.

The second article requires both countries to adhere to the basic principles enshrined in the United Nations Charter. The third article prohibits the signatories from using the territory of third countries for preparation of armed attacks. The fourth article is very specific—the United States shall prevent the further eastward expansion of NATO and deny NATO membership to any further former USSR Republics, meaning specifically Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia.

The fifth article prohibits either side from deploying weapons in international and third-party spaces to provoke or threaten, including agreement on maximum-approach distances of warships and aircraft. The sixth article is the prohibition of deployment of short and intermediate range missiles outside of the national territories of the parties, or where said missiles could threaten the other party.

The seventh article requires the withdrawal of all nuclear weapons deployed outside the  territories of both parties, and the dismantling of existing infrastructure outside the territories for the deployment of nuclear weapons, and prohibits the training of other countries’ militaries in the use of nuclear weapons. The eighth and final article stipulates the entry into force of the Treaty once ratification by both sides is complete.

This treaty is wise and highly equitable, a framework for de-escalation and a drawback from potential nuclear war. If the U.S. or NATO fails to ratify this treaty, Russia has made clear that it will enforce the provisions of the Treaty by military means.

Russia is not bluffing, and they do have the technical and military ability to do so. If the U.S./NATO refusal to ratify the treaty or further provocations in Ukraine lead to war, the onus will absolutely be on them and not on Russia. NATO armies, weapons and military infrastructure have advanced literally all the way up to the Russian border, and as Vladimir Putin has noted, “There is nowhere left to retreat.”

The treaty is not an “ultimatum,” rather it is the only feasible alternative to serious military confrontation that can easily lead to a major war. Unfortunately, it appears that Ukraine and NATO, led by the U.S., have no intention of pursuing the diplomatic option, and continue preparations and provocations that can and will lead only to a military response by Russia.

Amending of Ukrainian Constitution

On December 21st, four days after the Russian treaty proposal was published, Ukraine, on U.S. and NATO orders, with reckless impudence again amended the Ukrainian Constitution to allow foreign troops to operate on Ukrainian soil, in preparation for multiple NATO exercises to be held in Ukraine in 2022.

These include nine maneuvers to be carried out in 2022, and the number of  military personnel participating in them will almost double compared to 2021—to 64,000.

The number of aircraft and helicopters will more than triple—to 361—and warships almost four times—to 256. This is a tremendous military escalation, and while Russia can easily handle the Ukrainian military alone, Russia will be faced with a much more formidable foe if the NATO reinforcements are in place before hostilities commence.

Russia’s window of opportunity for a preemptive strike is a matter of weeks, and on December 29th, President Putin announced that Russia and Belarus have scheduled military exercises of their own for February and March of 2022.

It is quite possible and even “highly likely” that these “exercises” will be conducted not in Russia or Belarus, but in Ukraine itself. This possibility has already prompted the UK to announce plans to evacuate its soldiers and the U.S. to begin preparations to evacuate its citizens from Ukraine.

February 4, 2022, will be the opening day of the Winter Olympics in Beijing, and Putin has announced his intention to attend. The U.S. and NATO have a history of initiating military and geopolitical confrontations during the Olympics, as was seen with the Maidan coup in 2014 during the Sochi Olympics and the Georgian attack on South Ossetia during the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. All the above factors have led many analysts, including this author, to predict the start of major military operations in February 2022.

Non-Military Options and Russia’s Alliance with China

If the collective “West”—U.S./NATO—continue their advances and attacks against Russia, Russia also has multiple options of the non-kinetic variety with which to respond. Economic, technical and political means that can teach, even in a non-military way, what Vladimir Putin once described as “the true meaning of pain.”

Russia’s electronic warfare capabilities are currently unmatched in the world. The Murmansk-BN system has the ability to suppress radio and satellite communication over a distance of 3,000 kilometers, and has proven effective against hard targets like the U.S. F-35. Operating from within its own territory, Russia can suppress not only military aircraft, but civilian air traffic and ground transport and other communication over the entirety of Europe, including the UK.

Russia can play the energy card—the EU’s dependence on Russian oil and gas (47% in 2021) has become painfully clear this year, but it is a little known fact that Russia is the U.S.’s third largest supplier of petroleum products. In 2020, the U.S. imported 538,000 barrels per day from Russia, and even more in 2021. Russia’s supply accounts for 7% of all U.S. petroleum imports, and while an energy loss of 7% would be a major blow to the U.S., Russia can easily divert these shipments to the East and sell them there.

Were Russia to cut off its energy supplies to the EU, the economic devastation would be immediate and immeasurable. And the physical and infrastructure destruction would be even worse. People would literally freeze to death, pipes would freeze and burst, factories would be shut down and deteriorate, never to be re-opened. That is actually happening now in Ukraine. The U.S. and EU should take a look at that and take a lesson from it.

The Russia-China strategic partnership is not only military, it is economic. The U.S. economy today is a façade, a paper tiger with no real strength or foundation. The U.S. national debt is officially $30 trillion, more than 90% of GDP, and the true number, including U.S. government “unfunded liabilities” including $21 trillion for Social Security and $33 trillion for Medicare, is perhaps as much as ten times higher. It is a debt that can and will never be paid.

A combined economic assault by Russia and China against the U.S. dollar would cause inflation of Zimbabwean proportions. Soldiers do not fight if they are not paid, cops and government bureaucrats do not work if their paychecks are worthless, and citizens loot and riot if they cannot afford food. And if the U.S. economy implodes, it will take the EU economy with it. And vice versa.

All (or any) of these non-military moves would paralyze the economies and governments of virtually all NATO countries, inflicting a crushing defeat on the U.S. and EU without firing a shot. But Russia does have full justification and compelling motives for a military response as well. And if done correctly, it could result in total victory in a quick and relatively bloodless fashion.


  1. With that in mind, it should also be noted that in early 2017, the Kyiv regime dammed the North Crimean Canal which had supplied fresh water to the 2.5 million citizens of Crimea. While the Crimean peninsula produces adequate water for survival, this criminal act not only affects the health and quality of life of the citizens, it also has had an extremely negative impact on the agriculture, economy and ecology of the peninsula. Ukraine has been using ISIS and other Jihadi terrorists in its war against the Donbass Republics since the very beginning of the war. In early 2015, The Intercept first reported the links between ISIS and Ukrainian neo-Nazis. Other credible reports soon followed, from such divergent sources as Antiwar.comThe American Thinker, and even The New York Times reported on “three full Islamic battalions fighting in eastern Ukraine.” These reports are all from 2015, and the jihadi presence in Ukraine has only grown since then.

(republished, original article HERE)

From December 2021 into January 2022, the propaganda prigs have been busy on all surfaces of the geopolitical dodecahedron. There’s no chance getting through the whole of it (not even close) but we can peek at the psyops, manipulation of otherwise intelligent people and the artificially created, deceptive incentives to infighting and destabilizing one’s enemies in a few ways almost no one else will look at.

File:Tetartoid perspective.gif

One would like to see through the whole of it but the picture is so mixed, it defies short description. What in fact seems to be emerging is, when the forces of evil battle each other, it is not something a positive spin can be put on for the simple fact the collateral damage is immense; but we can begin with Russia and the Russian propaganda prigs employing ignorant Americans to propagandize ignorant Americans, that is Ted Rall whose understanding of the USA’s constitutional history is only matched by the ugliness of Rall’s cartoon characters:

“From the electoral college to gun rights to the hilariously archaic right to refuse to quarter troops in your home and the $20 threshold for a civil jury trial, the US Constitution contains many head-scratching relics of an America we wouldn’t recognize. Living in the age of the musket, James Madison might not be so quick to argue for legalizing the AR-15, assuming that a well-regulated state militia was still a thing.

“A work of genius the US Constitution is not. It is almost impossible to amend—it is in fact the hardest to amend in the world. The immutability of the document is highlighted by the inability of the world’s most powerful democracy to enshrine a right as basic as gender equality, a principle that the vast majority of other countries, even dictatorships and authoritarian regimes, have managed to include (at least in theory) in their founding charters” [1]

Going to Rall’s mangled context of the word “state” in Rall’s 1st paragraph, the 2nd Amendment’s “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state” is used (as it was meant to be used), at the time of it’s writing, in a singular, greater sense of ‘nation’ as the term ‘state’ is commonly known and used in international relations to this day. This has little to do with any state militia except to put a check on those as well, when the constitutional provision was made to arm the American people. [2]

The 2nd amendment plays big in the propaganda wars, as even sane American conservatives think it is a ‘god given right’ as opposed to the anti-federalists intending it as a check on the very sort of people manipulating today’s outcomes, that is Trump & his religious fanatic allies on the one side and the ‘liberal’ opposition on the other as “American Gladio” falsely convinces liberals all ‘gun rights nuts’ are murderous sociopaths. [3]

If the anti-federalists’ 2nd Amendment had been employed honestly (original intent), we’d be a decentralized nation of stable communities where only permanent community residents in good standing (upright citizens used to be the term) owned the military grade small arms and controlled the keys to the armory where the tanks are parked. There’d be no way we’d be bleeding the common taxpayer into an impossible to solve national debt problem for purpose of supplying truly lethal arms to the world and fanning the aggression demanding immense munitions expenditures (our ‘liberals’ are co-equal or worse offenders) enriching the military industrial complex. Mom & pop businesses would still flourish and a tap you bought for home installation, either in the 1930s or today, would still be working after 100 years.

CORRUPTION is the big alienating factor that in the end frightens people when it is the corrupt spinning the news (corporate owned press, journalism  these days is more concerned with job security than deeply delving into reporting on the hand that feeds them, includes ‘journalists’ like Rall working for state owned propaganda machines.) Then there’s the liberal element in power trying to jam their values down everyone’s throat, that radicalizes even the conservatives who aren’t religious nuts, which plays into a feedback loop generating more extreme hype on both sides.

This corruption consumed the American  constitution from our republic’s inception; to understand the argument between the Federalists and anti-Federalists was never solved, but the Federalists (essentially today’s corporate America) have played dirty ever since, one only need examine the history of the 11th Amendment and the associated, suspect, idea the USA has rightfully asserted the doctrine of Sovereign Immunity:

The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State. -11th Amendment
What had happened here, is a contractor from South Carolina was owed a Revolutionary War debt by the State of Georgia, which didn’t want to pay up. The Supreme Court had ruled there was no such thing as state sovereign immunity, in the case of Chisholm v Georgia.

“Chisholm v. Georgia, 2 U.S. (2 Dall.) 419 (1793), is considered the first United States Supreme Court case of significance and impact. Since the case was argued prior to the establishment of judicial review by Marbury v. Madison (1803), there was little available legal precedent (particularly in U.S. law). The Court, in a 4-1 decision, ruled in favor of Alexander Chisholm, a citizen of South Carolina, stating that states did not enjoy sovereign immunity from suits made by citizens of other states in federal court” [4]

Nearly all of the states freaked out at the prospect of having to pay up on their war debts and the 11th Amendment was passed, posthaste:

“To this day, Chisholm stands as one of only a handful of Supreme Court rulings that have been overturned by constitutional amendment. Even more important, the Supreme Court has built on the repudiation of Chisholm to hold that the Eleventh Amendment exemplifies a sovereign-immunity principle that sweeps well beyond the amendment’s text” [5]

And just like that, two immediate and a third, remarkable things happened;

1) Although the 11th Amendment is specific and narrow, and doesn’t so much as mention Sovereign Immunity, the legendary English Common Law expert William Blackstone’s Sovereign Immunity doctrine is reinstated in the former colonies: “The King moreover is not only incapable of doing wrong, but even of thinking wrong; he can never mean to do an improper thing: in him is no folly or weakness.” Only now, suddenly it is no longer the ‘King’ can act with impunity, but the institutions of government in the newly formed United States.

2) With the passing of the 11th Amendment by the several states’ legislators, all of the lawsuits pending in federal court per state war debts had been erased, and half the language of Article One, Section Nine, of the Constitution had been tossed into the ash bin: “No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.” Thomas Jefferson indicated this language had been meant to cover both criminal and civil circumstance of law, and the constitutional language supports this assertion by Jefferson; ‘Bill of Attainder’ should refer to criminal, and ‘ex post facto’ should refer to civil liabilities. In other words, the USA should not have been allowed to make law, criminalizing or creating liability, or excusing crime and liability, after the fact, to get the outcome it wants. The 11th Amendment neither mentions nor lifts this other constitutional provision. But now, civil ex post facto law happens frequently, such as Congress ‘forgiving’ the telecom companies illegally spying on Americans, erasing liability and robbing citizens of their day in court.

3) The third thing to happen was, as late as 1991, in Blatchford v. Native Village of Noatak, the Supreme Court wrote:

“we have understood the Eleventh Amendment to stand not so much for what it says, but for the presupposition of our constitutional structure which it confirms: that the States entered the federal feudal system with their sovereignty intact, that the judicial authority in Article III is limited by this sovereignty, and that a State will therefore not be subject to suit in federal court unless it has consented to suit, either expressly or in the “plan of the convention” [my correction of SCOTUS language in bold]

And there you have it, from the early days of the Supreme Court saying Sovereign Immunity is a non existent thing in immediate post colonial USA law, to the several states’ legislatures passing the 11th Amendment which doesn’t so much as mention Sovereign Immunity, to escape war debt, to the modern Supreme Court stating the language of our constitution’s 11th Amendment doesn’t mean what it actually says, but instead means what they want it to say, essentially stating ‘we’ll extend ‘the King’s prerogative‘ as far as we please, and we’ll use the 11th Amendment to absurdly assert what amounts to a claim the King’s Sovereign Immunity (impunity) was never a point of the American Revolution.’

Here’s the simple math: From King George III was our ‘sovereign’ entitled to immunity (amounting to impunity), to ‘the people’ are sovereign, to politicians claiming they hold the people’s sovereignty (amounting to impunity), to judges appointed by those very politicians upholding this political theft of our freedoms, to the oath to uphold our constitution becoming patently meaningless, even especially when cases come before the courts. [6]

It is in the light of this preceding we can examine (shortly) Rall’s “hilariously” ignorant idea (his second paragraph quoted at the beginning of this article) there is no existing means of enforcing gender equality in our constitution as written. In fact, with the enfranchisement of women (right to vote) via the 19th Amendment, the constitution’s “Equal Protection” of the law should have served as basis for enforcing gender equality. But what is it Rall (and liberals generally) don’t want to be honest about? If THERE WERE gender equality, in a context of ‘equal protection of the law’, women would be subject to military conscription, not only men. People like Rall will never pull that argument (together with their heads) out of where the sun never shines in their small understanding of the difficulties attending social evolution, probably because they fear losing it.

Insofar as Rall asserting the USA constitution “a work of genius it is not” should recall the same people (the anti-federalists which, as a popular movement, ratified the ‘Bill of Rights’ from New Hampshire to Georgia) who wrote the 2nd Amendment also wrote the 4th amendment concerning privacy in one’s papers, a given example of motivation in the anti-federalists’ actual intentions. As well, other rights, for instance prohibition of a bill of attainder, prevention of (warrantless) unreasonable searches & seizures and the right to confront your accuser. To name but a few provisions of the first through eighth amendments authored by the anti-federalists.

If our “Bill of Rights” had been insisted upon by anti-federalists (James Madison was the compromise proxy author), and it most certainly was, the entire world is indebted to our ‘hilariously archaic’ constitution for the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights inspired by the American Bill of Rights and certain of its provisions. The 2nd Amendment’s  original intent had been to secure these rights against the state. Well, it didn’t work out as planned because of the Federalist heirs’ dirty play, related dirty propaganda, that, and a self-righteous, arrogant ignorance coupled with moral turpitude & ethical cowardice across all sectors of society. To be honest, humankind is not yet evolved to point of functioning within a democracy. Rall actually seems to believe the other Western democracies, such as Germany, have functioning constitutions because they can be easily amended. Square that with the reality of German politics and its role in imperialism within today’s European Union; the best joke (cartoon in reality) a cynic could dream up: 1) Merkel goes out with a torch-lit parade featuring military sporting Nazi era helmets and music by the lover of an SS criminal executed for war crimes and gets a standing ovation at the Reichstag a day or so later, all a good match for certain NATO aggressive states’ political behaviors embedded in the European Union. [7], [8], [9]

So, going to the history of judicial corruption in the dirty play of the modern Federalists (today’s corporate America, spanning the political spectrum from Chevron’s Condoleezza Rice to Microsoft’s Bill Gates), we can wrap up this ‘Rall Constitutional Vivisection’ with the doctrine of “Strict Scrutiny” which was the WWII era invention of the USA Supreme Court that crucified the anti-federalist personal freedom protections when the new doctrine was employed to over-ride fundamental rights to secure a Federalist ‘compelling state interest’ (includes ‘sovereign immunity’ from suit and suspension of habeas corpus) with the internment of the USA’s Japanese-American population across the board. That was more than a simple prescience constituting a precedent, it was the judicial power grab that prepared the USA for the so-called ‘National Security Act of 1947’, authorizing creation of the CIA, led to the secret FISA court, unaccountable instigation of color revolutions, creation of al Qaida et al, leading ultimately to the so-called ‘Patriot Act’ (and too many more constitutional vulgarities to mention here), and the only thing ‘secured’ was extra-constitutional color of law authorizing empire and the resultant corporate state bringing the USA to ruin. [10]

Meanwhile, let’s do a bit of asymmetrical percentages; you leave both sides responsibility out of your studies and only point the finger at the one side, the left is going to get the right about 50% correct in its complicity and the right is going to get the left about 50% correct in its complicity. The two missing portions equaling 50% each is the 100% complicity both sides share in sending our small world ‘to hell in a hand basket.’

This academic clown correctly points to the USA sliding towards a 2nd civil war and fascist dictatorship but places disproportionate blame on a dead clown:

“But one can’t blame only Mr. Limbaugh, who died in early 2021, and his ilk for America’s dysfunction. These people and their actions are as much symptoms of that dysfunction as its root causes, and those causes are many. Some can be traced to the country’s founding – to an abiding distrust in government baked into the country’s political culture during the Revolution, to slavery, to the political compromise of the Electoral College that slavery spawned, to the over-representation of rural voting power in the Senate, and to the failure of Reconstruction after the Civil War. But successful polities around the world have overcome flaws just as fundamental” [11], [12]

Furthermore, in the  article, if Tucker Carlson is also to blame for the right’s misinformation, how is it the left’s constitutional attorney Glenn Greenwald frequents his show to discuss these matters of our vanishing personal liberties under the Biden administration, and Trump & Obama before that?

A mini rewrite of what seems basically the same material predicting a 2nd civil war in the USA is hosted at the Guardian and this snippet is not far off the mark:

[Fundamentalist Christian leadership of] “The right has recognized that the system is in collapse, and it has a plan: violence and solidarity with treasonous far-right factions” [13]

Both ignore the perfectly plausible ‘sane’ conservative assessment that, were it ‘antifa’ had ‘stormed’ the capitol on 6 January 2021, you wouldn’t see the intact historical decor in the photos of that event, you’d see the flames that had burned that building out. How is it the Capitol rioters are ‘insurrectionists’ & ‘domestic terrorists’ and the antifa rioters who burned Portland for 100 straight days are not? And both authors are ignorant of the corrupt process in the USA’s constitutional history; leading not only to GW Bush and Dick Cheney, but their co-equal criminal actors Barack Obama and Joe Biden, color revolution perpetrators, war mongers and corporate empire prostitutes, the lot of them.

Let’s (just briefly) back up to “But successful polities around the world have overcome flaws just as fundamental” and ask, ‘Oh yeah, and what’s with those covid lock-down riots across the European Union?’ Oh, that’s right, the Federalist empire’s corporate media doesn’t have an easy spin for that. Must be some imperfection having to do with protecting allies in the West’s empire projects and “Liberal Democracy in Europe.” [14], [15]

At the end of the day, the common sense right invites the left to talk our problems out but nowhere in leadership on the left is there anyone to communicate with…

“Trump supporters were led down some rabbit holes. But they are absolutely right that the institutions and power centers of this country have been monopolized by a Regime that believes they are beneath representation, and will observe no limits to prevent them getting it. I encourage people on the Left to recognize the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in front of them. You’re not going to agree with the conservatives on everything. But if in 2004 I had told you that the majority of the GOP voter base would soon be seeing the folly of the Iraq War, becoming skeptical of state surveillance, and beginning to see the need for action to help the poor and working classes, you’d have told me such a thing would transform the country. Take the opportunity. These people are not demons, and they are ready to listen in a way they haven’t in a long, long time” [16]

…no differently were the sinking, working class right to cross the boundaries created by history exploited in the propaganda hype, there is no one in the right’s leadership to talk the tensions down and pursue some common sense communications:

“Maybe, just maybe, whitey, y’all should look at setting some history aside and begin negotiating some détente and political alliances with black people in the lower middle class communities you should be grateful hadn’t adopted the attitude of ‘the only good cracker is a dead cracker.’ From there alliances might be bridged deeper into those ghettos with a seething anger at what had happened to them and what is now happening to you.

Peripheral notes:

Question for Russian intelligence: Has anyone informed Putin ivermectin crushes covid? Or is the Russian estate determined Putin will join the roll call of prostitutes history will be unforgiving towards as Russia squeezes down on its populace with mandatory, “gene therapy” vaccination and the related erasure of personal liberties? So, does Big Pharma own you too? Our ‘Dr Mengele’s’ name is Fauci. Who is yours? [18]

Factoid: The covid virus is 1,000 times smaller than the pores in the masks you breathe through. Do ‘mask mandates’ say anything to anyone concerning psychological operations pointing people away from securing so-called ‘personal liberties?’ [19]

‘Deutschland Uber Alles’

Read in English

Liberalna demokratija u Evropi

Članstvo u nacističkoj partiji u Nemačkoj brojalo je oko 10%, i oni su kontrolisali i motivisali da podržava fašizam ne samo nemački narod, već je ovih 10% vodilo agresivni imperijalizam do te mere da su nametali volju svojim susedima. Sa Evropskom unijom, kojom dominira današnja Nemačka, postoji prilično šokantno poređenje kada ispitamo „veliku koaliciju“ zastarelog političkog sporazuma Angele Merkel:

Gruba matematika članstva u partijama:

Socijaldemokrate 420.000
Hrišćansko-demokratska unija 406.000
Hrišćansko-socijalna unija 140.000

Ukupan broj članova stranke „velike koalicije“ bilo je oko 966.000 što je, izračunato u procentima na približno 60.000.000 (šezdeset miliona) birača sa pravom glasa u Nemačkoj, jednako 1,6% članova stranke ili manje od 2% Nemaca koji su kreirali i vodili politiku za 60.000.000 (šezdeset miliona) nemačkih birača.

Nova „semafor“ koalicija koristeći statistiku za 2019 (nisu se radikalno promenili)

Članstvo u partiji:

Socijaldemokrate 420.000
Zeleni 97.000
Slobodne demokrate 66.000

Ukupno partijsko članstvo 583.000

Ukupno birača 60.000.000

Ili u „liberalno demokratskoj“ Nemačkoj 21. veka, sa svojom dominantnom pozicijom unutar EU, nova koalicija određuje da će oko 1% Nemaca sprovoditi ideologiju, politiku i pravac, kojima će, ne samo Nemačka, već i cela Evropska unija (a i šire) biti podređene.

Za 400.000.000 (četiri stotine miliona) glasača Evropske unije politiku je kreirala nova nemačka „semafor“ koalicija = 0,145% (čak ni dve desetine jednog procenta) i odlučivaće o pravcu i sudbini otprilike jedne polovine Evrope. Ali ovde nije reč samo o tome. Reč je i o proširenju Evropske unije, de fakto nemačkog imperijalizma, koji nameće svoju volju mnogo efikasnije nego što su to činili nacisti, sa takozvanom mekom moći, koju obično pojačavaju-sprovode na mračnoj strani (ucene, atentati) relevantne obaveštajne agencije:

Meka moć

Meka moć u politici (naročito u međunarodnoj politici) je manipulacija ili funkcionisanje sistema nagrađivanja i kažnjavanja u odsustvu (očiglednog) fizičkog nasilja. Meka moć uključuje oblikovanje preferencija drugih kroz pozivanje, pridobijanje i (prikrivene) pretnje ili neprijatne posledice. Valuta meke moći obuhvata kulturu, političke vrednosti, privlačenje i nagrade.

Novi šef nemačkog imperijalnog projekta meke moći:

Olaf Šolc

Od kada je 2010. godine prisustvovao Bilderbergu, kao gradonačelnik Hamburga, Šolcova karijera je doživela efekat Bilderberga, napredujući 2020. godine do kandidata socijaldemokrata za nemačkog kancelara na nemačkim parlamentarnim izborima 2021.godine

✓ podržava „suverenu“ Evropsku uniju

U novoj nemačkoj „semafor“ koaliciji „zeleno svetlo“ će voditi spoljnu politiku. Nova ministarka spoljnih poslova, Analena Berbok (naivna i zrela za manipulaciju od strane obaveštajnih brifinga Bundesnachrichtendiensta) donosi atlantističku orijentaciju koja nema premca kada je reč o anglo-američkom obučenom nemačkom imperijalisti:

Analena Berbok

Analena Berbok je izabrana za kandidata Zelene stranke na nemačkim parlamentarnim izborima za kancelara 2021. godine, kada je Savez 90/Zeleni ostvario svoj najbolji rezultat ikada sa 14,8% glasova, osvojivši 118 mesta, i zauzevši treće mesto iza SPD-a (206 mesta) i CDU/CSU (196 mesta)…

✓ podržava širenje NATO-a na istok

✓ podržava agresivniju spoljnu politiku Evropske unije

Zatim, imamo „zelenog“ beznačajnog romanopisca-pokrajinskog političara koji postaje vicekancelar, u suštini, dodeljuje mu se uloga da lobira na liniji zelene stranke u formulisanju politike kod kancelara:

Robert Habek

Robert Habek je nemački pisac i političar. Na funkciji je ko-lidera Saveza 90/Zelenih od 2018. godine zajedno sa Analenom Berbok. Habek je položio završne ispite 1989. godine u srednjoj školi Hajnrih…

✓ podržava neonacistički režim u Kijevu

Ali tip koji drži Ministarstvo poljoprivrede je onaj koga bi ljudi morali da se pripaze, jer će njegova uloga i uticaj iza zatvorenih vrata sigurno biti kolosalni u postojećem projektu nemačkog imperijalizma 21. veka, kada se uzme u obzir da Zeleni drže ministarstvo spoljnih poslova:

Džem Ozdemir

Džem Ozdemir je nemački političar iz nemačke političke partije Savez 90/Zeleni. On je deo pažljivo negovane partijske frakcije, koja je Zelene dovela od pacifističke partije do snažno militarističkog („maslinastozelenog“) stava, navodeći da smo „mi Zeleni izgubili strah od ministarstava koja se bave bezbednosnim pitanjima“

✓ član osnivač, Evropski savet za spoljne odnose (ECFR)

Podsećajući da sadašnja „liberalna demokratija“, iteracija nemačkog imperijalizma dolazi na scenu u Strazburu i Briselu sa manje od dve desetine jednog procenta evropskog biračkog tela (nemački front za kreiranje politike ili semafor koalicija koja određuje buduću politiku EU), „zeleno svetlo“ takođe ima pravo da imenuje sledećeg nemačkog člana (kada fon der Lajenovoj istekne mandat) Evropske komisije i ne morate da budete naročito pametni da bi ste pretpostavili da će to biti „zeleni” specijalni izvestilac Evropske unije za zapadni Balkan, besprekorni nemački imperijalista, koji je zvanično izjavio: „Zapadni Balkan nije naše susedstvo, to je naše dvorište“… sa biografijom koja kao da je u potpunosti profilisana Bundesnachrichtendienst-ovim (nemačka CIA) karakteristikama:

Viola fon Kramon

U avgustu 2018. godine, fon Kramon je najavila da će se kandidovati za poslaničko mesto na evropskim izborima 2019. Od kada je postala poslanica u Evropskom parlamentu, radi u Odboru za spoljne poslove. U tom svojstvu, ona je izvestilac Parlamenta za odnose sa Zapadnim Balkanom. Godine 2020. pridružila se i Specijalnom komitetu za strano mešanje u sve demokratske procese u Evropskoj uniji

✓ protivi se pravu na samoopredeljenje naroda

✓ spava sa ratnim huškačima Zelenskog u Kijevu

✓ doprinosi postojećem NATO-vom okruživanju Rusije

U okolnostima „liberalne demokratije“, u kojoj u Evropskoj uniji manje od dve desetine jednog procenta kreira i vodi politiku, mora se uzeti u obzir dodatni strukturalni fenomen; 583.000 Nemaca, koji su osvojili 400.000.000 građana EU sa pravom glasa, ne menja prirodu hijerarhije u kojoj će šačica od 583.000 na vrhu, sa bočnim udruženjima (obaveštajne agencije, korporativni lobiji), odrediti pravac. Samo još jedna nepovoljna jednačina.

Projekat „meke moći“ Bundesnachrichtendienst-a imperijalne Nemačke 21. veka ne samo da je zavarao Kremlj u, po svoj prilici, ravnopravnom odnosu „kancelar-predsednik“, već povrh toga, u transatlantskim odnosima, Nemačka čini da današnje SAD izgledaju kao da imaju hendikepirani IQ, grubijan-nasilnik-telohranitelj, što je zapravo i postala; tupoglavi siledžija koji uživa u oholoj zabludi o veličini, kada manipuliše na svetskoj sceni predstavom, čiju strategiju i energiju podstiče slabo prikriveni centralnoevropski imperijalni mim, kojim pere svoju agendu.

Ljudi treba da prestanu sa pogrešno usmerenom opsednutošću Amerikancima i započnu da istražuju Nemce.

Postskriptum bi bio, u ovom slučaju kada kratko istraživanje utvrdi da su „pacifističke“ težnje u kontradikciji sa militarističkim udruženjima i radnjama, zaista bih više voleo da postoje neke inteligentne politike očuvanja ekosistema i relevantni zakoni koji će pokazati zube. Ali, svakako ne bih poželeo dobrodošlicu nemačkom imperijalizmu 21. veka u svojoj dnevnoj sobi; da raspravljamo o postizanju pozitivnih ishoda u slučaju gde jedna „liberalna demokratija“ imperijalne Nemačke određuje realnost u kojoj se „zeleno“, zapravo, odnosi na slučaj gangrene.

May all the gods bless (forever) Dr David Martin for bringing record amount of traffic to this site in 2021. Stats in simple graphics:

^ 55,000+ views, 30,000+ visitors

Dr David Martin’s article “mRNA: It’s Gene Therapy, Not a Vaccine” brought 25,000+ views or nearly one half of the year’s article stats. This statistic would have been by far larger but the duckduckgo search engine adjusted its algorithms to bury the article, while noting google had done this to restrict ronaldthomaswest.com articles years ago. The David Martin article is not suppressed at Bing but the Microsoft search engine sees miniscule use by comparison.

^ Visits from across the world in 2021

With NATO continuing to provoke Russia with electronic warfare flights, even as so-called ‘security’ meetings are being convened with Russia in January 2022 (10 January with USA, 12 January with NATO and possibly 13 January with OSCE), Estonia is the most recent NATO arms-broker to ‘jab the bear’ with a sharp stick (planning Javelin anti-tank missiles & howitzer large caliber artillery deliveries to Ukraine.) It’s time to bring “NATO’s Three Chihuahuas” back to front & center. Original article (info-satire) from 2014, when the NATO-Ukraine pot began to boil:

Small Dog Syndrome or ‘Yappy Dogs With a Death Wish.’ Did you know if you get up close, face to face, with the Chihuahua in the window of a car in the parking lot, the miniature dog will become so insane with wishing to terrify you, he’ll involuntarily urinate on the door inside the car? That’s what Putin is doing to NATO’s Chihuahuas Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania:

dogpooping

^ NATO’s broken promise not to expand east

NATO’s three Chihuahuas, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, would appear to suffer a serious case of what’s called ‘small dog syndrome’

Small dog. Big mouth. Are our blustery, pint-sized pooches the product of nature, nurture, or a bit of both? Perhaps it’s a genetically ingrained Napolean complex. Or could it be that our pooch has developed Small Dog Syndrome as a result of social experiences and parenting?

Or, perhaps the better question to ask, is this on account of negative social experiences & parenting? Our three Chihuahuas probably have acquired Small Dog Syndrome on account of both.

Chihuahus5

To begin our analysis, it should be pointed out our three Chihuahuas, that is Lithuania, Latvia & Estonia, were all provinces of Russia to 1918, when the world’s map had been redrawn on account of World War One. Briefly independent, the Soviet Union grabbed them back about the time Josef Stalin became (with good cause) paranoid of NAZI Germany. He wanted to put a buffer between the Germans and St Petersberg (a.k.a. Petrograd & Leningrad, to those who’d not kept up on the changes in our rapidly disintegrating  geopolitic.) Meanwhile, NAZI Germany grabbed the three Chihuahuas from the Soviet Union with the design to make them into a part of ‘NeueOstLand.’ The Soviet Union grabbed the Chihuahuas back at the conclusion of the war and then, the Chihuahuas were set free again, when it was Russians had dismantled the Soviet Union.

Now, it stands to reason the three Chihuahuas would not have enjoyed what the Soviet Union became under Stalin, but the same could be said of the Russians who’d dismantled that empire, something the Russian writer Solzhenitsyn had established beyond a doubt. And somehow, possibly because the Chihuahua breed has a skull configuration appearing as though its brain had collapsed from inbreeding, our three Chihuahuas cannot seem to separate out the fact Stalin was a Georgian in their paranoia of Russians and the fact it was Russians had freed them.

Lithuania. Small dog. Big mouth:

“Vilnius: Lithuania on Thursday accused Russia of a military “invasion” of conflict-torn Ukraine and called for a United Nations Security Council meeting over the issue.

“Lithuania strongly condemns the obvious invasion of the territory of Ukraine by the armed forces of the Russian Federation,” the foreign ministry said, adding that the Security Council should address the matter “immediately””

Never mind the CIA, with the complicity of the political party providing the current German chancellor, overthrew an elected government in Ukraine and has supported a post-coup neo-nazi regime in Kiev.

Neo-Nazis march in Kaunus, Lithuania, February 16, 2013 (photo: Dovid Katz)

Neo-Nazis march in Lithuania, February 16, 2013 (Dovid Katz photo, Times of Israel)

^ “one of the “heroes” of the marchers whose portrait appeared on a large banner was Juozas Ambrazevicius, the Prime Minister of the Provisional Lithuanian government of June 1941, which fully supported the Third Reich […] in May 2012, his remains were brought back to Lithuania and buried in Kaunas with full national honors, despite his despicable role in Holocaust crimes”

chihuahua2

Latvia. Small dog. Big mouth:

“These sanctions will not be catastrophic for the Latvian economy,” Straujuma said, adding that behind the scenes “Latvia has been working hard to ensure the gas sector is not affected” as Latvia is almost totally reliant on Russia for supplies of natural gas”

Somehow, in Latvia, the folk proverb ‘Don’t bite the hand that feeds you’ got lost in translation, or was just lost. Notice the dent in the skull of the Chihuahua, indicating collapse where the brain should have been. A physiological trait the Latvian government appears to share with Nazis:

“Four Latvian MPs (E. Cilinskis, J. Dombrava, R. Dzintars, I. Parādnieks) attended the Waffen SS fest giving it, in 2014, a flavor of state approval taken in tandem with the gifting of the city center and Liberty Monument area”

(^ fine print: notice Baltic Nazi sympathies are in line with the Ukrainian Svoboda Party & Right Sector the Russians are taking issue with, Nazis having taken power in Kiev with ample assistance from an ever more aggressive & expanding NATO.)
*

chihuahua3

Estonia. Small dog. Big mouth:

“Russia has been destabilising Ukraine for too long. By now, terrorists acting in Eastern Ukraine have received added reinforcements in the form of Russian military forces that can clearly be recognised. This is undeclared war”

Sure, it actually is undeclared war, a war began by NATO and the EU undermining Ukraine, empowering neo-nazis, while crapping on its promise to Russia not to expand NATO when the Russians agreed to dismantle the Soviet Union. And speaking of terrorists in Eastern Ukraine, what do you suppose that might have to do with the coup supporters murdering people en mass on multiple occasions? One of those occasions is spoken to by the Estonian foreign minister, captured in a phone call:

Now, why do you suppose the Estonian didn’t go public with this? Because the Estonian government also harbors Nazi sentiment?

”It is really surprising that Estonia has so hysterical reactions in their need [to] support the SS-Waffen celebration. I wrote a RT-column about two weeks ago about these celebrations. And now SS-Waffen celebrations are carried out again in Estonia, but Estonia’s security service wrote the prohibition against me to enter the country. Estonia limits the freedom of journalists to report about the political phenomena, if these journalists don’t work under the service of Estonian security service and their ideology.

”I had a plan to enter to Estonia and write a RT-column about these SS-Waffen celebrations, feelings, symbols, etc. I haven’t ever done any crimes in Estonia (or in other country), I am an EU-citizen. Fortunately, I had planned to travel separately from Finnish friends of mine. If did I travel with them on board, now I would sit in a prison cell, together with Dr. Johan Bäckman.

”Johan Bäckman, an adjunct professor at the Helsinki university, was arrested during last night 30th July although his name was not on any “blacklist”. Bäckman has never done any crime in Estonia. He would have written critically about these Nazi celebrations.

”Petri Krohn, the president of the association Finland without Nazism has also an entry ban for the days of SS-celebrations.”

Now, we’ve established the three Chihuahuas have some common traits, collapsed heads where brain cavity should have existed, related Nazi sympathies & associations, and not least, Small Dog Syndrome, in lay terms known as ‘Yappy Dogs with a Death Wish’

Small Dog Syndrome develops when an owner “protects” their dog from the world. They may not allow their tiny dog to socialize with dogs larger in size for fear they will be hurt. Instead of allowing the dog to play, they sit with him in their lap or race in and swoop up the pup each time a bigger dog comes near. By doing so, they deprive their dog of important socialization with his surroundings and other dogs, creating an aggressive dog that is unsure, fearful, and anxious.

Huh. Sounds like NATO has been an irresponsible parent, protecting our three Chihuahuas from Russia and reality. But you know what? Aggressive behaviors taken together with sympathetic relations towards & support for Nazis in Kiev, considering Russia’s history, could get small dogs penalty-kicked like a football at the poorly defended NATO goal. But hey, with a depression where a brain cavity should exist, what other consequence could one expect for our three Chihuahuas? (goes for a few medium size NATO dogs too, it’s a consequence called ‘fallout’)

The Dawn of Everything by David Graeber & David Wengrow, a Review

The “Dawn of Everything” is a Western anthropological tome that will see few Native American readers outside of that peculiarly Western, politically correct, academic institution euphemistically called ‘Native Studies.’

This book review sets out to challenge what those in academia might not.

What the book got right: Ancient matriarchy was decentralized and (by comparison to patriarchy) non-violent, yet capable of governing large polities. What it may have got wrong about that: the suggestion we can get back to this from where we’re “stuck” for the simple reason today’s patriarchy shapes the mentality of women to point of they’re not really women in any sense of what that had meant prior to the Western mentality’s ego-individuation. [1]

The book is audacious, and in the same moment, pretentious & myopic. The cultural bias is stark; in a presumed self exam of failed assessments by anthropology, in effort to grasp how Western civilization has come to be stuck in a murderous hierarchy of the present day, there is little exploring of the literature exterior to mainstream. Rather this work, although interesting in many respects, uses a deck of old cards to posit an alternative future.

The work credibly sets out to identify commonality in the roots of male hierarchy across the world; with some success in near Asia and Europe would be my presumption (I’m no expert in these areas, probably just a bit better read than your average passing interest) and this was interesting reading (for myself, at least.) Where the book goes off the rails altogether is in the Americas, particularly in North America. What the authors cannot have known (and more than likely their historical sources as well) is, outside of ceremonial context, oral histories are given in euphemisms and figures of speech. The cultural point of this is, is to negate any possibility of drawing the attention of the past into the present in a somewhat literal sense among peoples who saw the power of speech in far greater terms of causality than Westerners.

In fact the abandoned Mississippi River ‘civilization’ of Cahokia was not “erased” from the oral histories, rather some subjects are so sensitive, they were not spoken outside of certain ceremony at all. The example I would give is, in the historic Blackfeet heartland there is a geographic-ceremonial location called “Bear River” whose location is argued over by anthropologists to this day, after two hundred years. The precise location is known to myself, courtesy of an oral historian (an elder woman) in a ceremonial context/relationship.

Of my many years acquaintance with, and interactions in (40+ years), Native American communities, 25 years were more or less immersed (10 of these years were full immersion) with peoples of the native languages of Plains culture, where I had encountered, on numerous occasions, oral historians who fluently spoke Blackfeet (Amskapi Pikuni dialect), Chippewa (Plains Ojibwa), Cree and Metis. Nearly all of their kids spoke only English, reflecting the end of the oral histories era. I witnessed this end of era, at least in the communities I had been familiar with. My understanding is, this is an accelerating process of loss that has been underway for a very long time. In some areas, where the language ‘survives’, it is so modified away from the ancient (original), it would be more than a fair question to ask; would the ancient speakers even recognize the same words use in modern dialect? In languages of what had been observation of process, nouns were nearly unknown. In the ‘new’ dialects, Western thought is encroaching to point an Indian born 200 years past wouldn’t understand what his great, great grandchild is talking about, without some significant difficulty. Nor would the descendant easily grasp this close ancestor’s mental process.

This goes to the book’s sweeping (and absolutely absurd) assertion all languages share the commonality of nouns. This is a serious mistake and a very telling one. To be the ophthalmologist in this case will be take us a bit roundabout but we’ll attempt to arrive at the penetration of this Western cultural bias (ethnocentric myopia) with a gift of sight.

One of the books claims is the absolutely correct thesis Native Americans were a significant source of ideas motivating and moving forward the Enlightenment philosophy. Throwing out the male gender and substituting “The Mystery” for Deism & God (I’ve tinkered with the following passage), the enlightenment thinker Thomas Paine’s description of our existence could have come from the mouth of any Native orator addressing Jesuits:

“The Mystery needs none of those tricks and shows called miracles to confirm our faith, for what can be a greater miracle than the creation itself, and our own existence? There is a happiness in The Mystery, when rightly understood, that is not to be found in your system of religion. The system you describe to us have some things in it that either shock our reason, or are repugnant to us, and we, if we think at all, must stifle our reason in order to force ourselves to believe them. But in The Mystery our reason and our belief become happily united. The wonderful structure of the cosmos, and everything we behold in this system of Mysterious creation, prove to us, better than any book can do, the existence of what cannot be known in its origins, and yet at the same time express its’ attributes. It is by the exercise of our reason that we are enabled to contemplate The Mystery in its’ works, and imitate it in our ways. When we see The Mystery’s care and goodness extended over all the creatures, it teaches us our duty toward each other, whilst it calls forth our gratitude to the whole of it” [2]

The book’s authors altogether miss (or avoid) this (immediate preceding) contribution to enlightenment thinking, rather focusing on personal “liberty.”

I will not argue there was significant contribution of Native American notion of liberty to the Enlightenment; but this contribution is a perverted understanding of Native American individual liberty; sans the crucial aspect of self-restraint (gone missing) in the European semi-grasp of native philosophy.

“thinkers who do seek to knit together the findings of specialists, to describe the course of human history on a grand scale, haven’t entirely got past the biblical notion of the Garden of Eden, the Fall and subsequent inevitability of domination. Blinded by the ‘just so’ story of how human societies evolved, they can’t even see half of what’s now before their eyes”

The authors themselves miss the one half of European thought, that is to say they focus on ‘the fall’ but entirely ignore the other half of it; the out-sized influence of Plato. Where is Plato? Considering their astute observation that modern society is ‘stuck’ in our current predicament, one should consider Plato versus indigenous ‘integration’ to consciousness of their respective cosmos (environment) or objectivity versus theoretical physicist d’Espagnat’s observation consciousness (demonstrated via experiments in quantum mechanics) demands one cannot be separated from environment or surrounding awareness, whether the ‘objects’ of the house you’re in (including the house itself) or a boreal forest or savanna. Here is the glaring omission:

[Plato’s] “The doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment” -theoretical physicist Bernard d’Espagnat [3]

Plato’s invisibility in the text (but visible in the approach) determines certain conclusions are correctly radical (excellent cultural self-criticism) relating to ‘the fall’ and in a paradox are also quite conservative in Plato’s European tradition and thusly observations in overall context remain highly limited from certain indigenous American view; for the fact their material must be drawn practically 100% from the tradition of Plato’s objectivity, whether ‘mainstream’ archaeology or Western interpretation of indigenous narrative.

The book jumps willy-nilly across the globe, hither & thither and back; when contrasting a presumption of matriarchy; but whether Minoan Crete versus Greece might be cast in the overthrow of the Titans & and the end of Gaia (victors wrote the ugly history of Gaia’s children as monsters) are events which do not enter the picture and it does not occur to the authors to search ‘mythology’ of Western history depicting the overthrow of matriarchy on the European side. Had this found its way into the text it should contrast well to aspect of Native American matriarchy which purpose is the absolute prohibition on the emergence of ego in any form (ego being essentially diagnosed as a mental disorder.) The purpose of the near universal Native American ‘god’ (deliberate small ‘g’), the trickster, is euthanasia of sustained ego or what the Western psychology calls “individuated ego” (better described as ‘ego-priapism’ from the native side.)

The Mississippi River city of Cahokia, and abandoned surroundings, is correctly inferred as a rejection of a philosophy of life but this was not a ‘self-rejection’ of lifestyle by the city’s inhabitants; in fact the oral histories had NOT been silent (the authors’ presumption is “erased” from the oral histories) but in fact Cahokia presumably erased from the oral histories points to the Western anthropological sources ignorance of ceremonial story-telling; you cannot speak of the great evils except under the protection of a ‘shield’ (to prevent notifying or calling forth ‘ghosts’ much effort had been made to banish.)

Cahokia’s founding date coincides with oral histories timeline of an inter-tribal ‘peace chiefs’ alliance establishment; that is when an international warrior/priesthood became emissaries opposed to deviation from the way encountered in cosmology of integration to natural determination as dictated by a greater gnosis of (emanating from) environment, not any individual (and especially ‘ego-individuated’) humans. Cahokia was ‘rubbed out’ quite literally by a far-flung alliance of tribes determined to eradicate a spreading cancer correctly inferred (in the book) as originating in the region of Central America (Blackfeet oral historian Floyd HeavyRunner had narrated to myself it was these peoples had strayed farthest from the “true way.”).

The peace-chiefs’ inter-tribal diplomacy corps were initially formed as a result of determination by surrounding peoples to make Cahokia vanish from the surrounding peoples’ (multiple cosmos) proximity. After, their purpose morphed into that of healer-teachers intended to get the associated, culturally deprived peoples (survivors) back on track in the proper direction.

The Osage descendants of Cahokia having experimented with constitutional reform on multiple occasions simply exhibits a series of fits and starts (basically fumbling) their way towards reintegration to the original indigenous concept of cosmology or becoming integral to a natural order where their place is one of pruning, and away from the destructive nature of plowing (plowing here is certainly not meant to be literal but employed as a metaphor.) In this case, it would have happened the allied peace chiefs had, subsequently, instructed the Osage in recovery of the way or reintegration to a natural order of things; and clearly this ‘peace order’ would have stopped short of explicit instruction of how the Osage should determine their own cosmos arrangement; pointing the way and arrival are distinct things. To point the way in sense of process does not determine outcome at arrival, where each tribe’s adopted (or newly adopted) territory constitutes a cosmos expressing the respective ‘real peoples’ who must establish a niche in peer relationship to the ‘others’ (other manifestations of life) in the natural order of things. The established cosmos must accept the people, i.e. grant permission to occupy the land, the people do not determine this.

In fact one of the arguments dismissed by the authors is nearly spot on:

“If the indigenous peoples of North America aren’t being imagined as living in a separate time, or as vestiges of some earlier stage of human history, then they’re imagined as living in an entirely separate reality (‘ontology’ is the currently fashionable term), a mythic consciousness fundamentally different from our own”

They ‘disprove’ this preceding by pointing to the narrative skills of the indigenous orators in making comparisons to Western thinking; not realizing there was an entirely different ability to think on the indigenous side; an ability to think entirely failed by Western language with no working grasp of an aboriginal system’s vocabulary that compares well to modern quantum reality. The ‘nearly spot on’ (or near miss) is the idea of “mythic consciousness”, this a rank fail. There would be no sense of ‘mythic’ at all in practical application of this ‘other’ way of thinking on the native side; it is scientific, realizable and would be perfectly comprehensible with modern tools of understanding except for the wall of ‘objectivity’ or legacy of Plato:

“…the Diné are just as capable of thinking objectively as Western people and of using their language to make objective statements. However, they are also always aware of “an intrinsic subjective relationship which is not nullified by an objective statement [..] The capacity of intra-subjective knowing is not done unconsciously or automatically, and it does not preclude Western ways of knowing. It is an added capacity of awareness, not a primitive one” [4]

Western anthropology and archaeology would be incapable of grasping this prior to the 20th Century at earliest (with the conceptual vocabulary of quantum mechanics) and have yet but to dance about the edge with radical genius co-opted by none other than Western myth-making; Benjamin Whorf’s ‘linguistic relativity’ as related to David Bohm’s ‘rheomode’ has been hijacked by new age persona and westernized ‘Indian’ novelists. [5], [6], [7]

And there you have the wall… the Western (and ‘westernized’) peoples cannot know what (through language, particularly) they have no capacity to understand. All of the European expectations demanding explanations solely in objective mode from the native side must fail for the fact there is no capacity to grasp the intra-subjective knowing by the (limited to objectivity) ego-individuation structure of the modern European mentality.

Here it should be noted archaic terms like ‘ghosts’ actually refer to ‘energies’ in a sense of string theory (the universe is made up of tiny vibrating strings that resonate; in the native observational sense of a spider’s web) and this is why the idea of archaeology is abhorrent; vibrating past (perverse or deviant, negative) energies into ‘life’ (again) is counter to intelligent outcomes & positive present and future. Digging things up is tantamount to causing wounds in time and allowing the past to bleed into the present.

Certain, specific ceremony (sometimes using relics), on the other hand, is a safe means of traversing time that doesn’t disturb (when properly functioning) those many phenomena best left alone when/while in pursuit of cultural continuity. [8]

At the end of the day, ‘The Enlightenment’ got 1/2 the picture of Native American liberty; missing altogether is the individual self-restraint demanded by these native nations’ original understanding; the fact they merely occupied a niche integrated into a cosmos demanding a sentient-aware natural environment is constructed to include what should be seen as environment integrated to peers (in effect, everything else) might be gardened but never dominated. European folk traditions of terror notwithstanding, let’s not forget wolves live in a practical matriarchy whose purpose is to prune, not plow. The land was not ‘communally owned’ at all except that one were to include the practical grasp of native science indicating ‘the whole of it owns itself’ supporting d’Espagnat’s assertion opposing Plato’s doctrine:

“The knowledge and use of any or all the powers of the objects on Earth around us, is as liable to lead a man wrong as to lead him right, because it is merely power, with no way of knowing how to use it correctly- except that spirit is with a man’s spirit for the light” -Red Tomahawk, Sioux (1918.) [9]

Red Tomahawk’s ‘spirit’ (relates to “naaks” in Blackfeet) is the sentient awareness of collective creation, our very surroundings are intelligent expression integrated via consciousness to nature, or one might say (in Western terms) omnipresent god. When he says ‘spirit is with a man’s spirit’ (for the light), we are looking at what d’Espagnat stumbles upon nearly 100 years later; recognizing an innate consciousness embodied in our surroundings plays in everything we can experience. Moreover, Red Tomahawk is discriminating between a sole, intimate knowledge of any single object’s raw power, and an understanding of the larger purpose concerning the nature of that very object, recognizing these are distinct things. His understanding (different to the European concept) opens to the possibility of allowing for the trees, stones, or for that matter (again), everything surrounding us, to possess consciousness and to ‘know’ purpose exterior to the European self-centered or ‘individual’ cultural shaping and resultant ‘imperative’ perception. It is only when the ego-individuated concept of the European mentality is overthrown will this larger Native door of understanding be opened, where we can know how to listen, to intelligently ‘see’ our way through the intra-dimensional nature of our existence. In retrospect, who are the primitives? The tribal people? Or the people who, if they were to work out honest equation, must discover their ‘advancement’ & ‘progress’ via method of sustained development exploiting, desecrating one could say, the omnipresence of what amounts to the living mystery expressing us through creation, must point to our ceasing to exist and nullify awareness? Jesus admonished “Know you not you are gods?” What sort of gods should we propose to be? Those who put creation to death through the arrogance of the individuated ego? That would be the effect of sustained development, globalism, the international oligarchs’ and not least, the Western science enabling it all, a cancer (a larger concept of empire) on the very expression sustaining us. The authors of “The Dawn of Everything put their toe in the water here, and as Westerners, deserve great credit for that, but they haven’t yet learned how to swim. Plato’s objectivity is the problem. As a matter of fact, for the simple phenomenon of the missing “intra-subjective knowing” capacity, the Europeans could not have accurately reported on Native mental process, not yesteryear or now.

Insofar as the authors’ conclusion:

“Nor does our evidence support the notion that major innovations always occur in sudden, revolutionary bursts, transforming everything in their wake”

Setting aside the word “always” one would think the atom bomb & internet might have been given at least a small paragraph … and it is in this regard we’ll step outside of the mainstream of anthropology to (briefly, I promise) explore just a few of those ‘explosive’ possibilities, while noting ‘ideas’ can be infectious like disease, in our conclusion.

I will quote here the oral historian (speaker of Blackfeet ancient dialect) Floyd HeavyRunner “We know who [plural, multiple parties] arrived by sea, when they came, and who was already here when we arrived.” Considering Blackfoot oral history extends back in time to migrating with mammoth herds in the south of North America prior to the ice sheet retreat, we’ll put the Blackfeet precursor people in South America before that:

“When North America was an ice-age tundra, the first Americans were “cooking” their cultures in the tropical south, moving northward and settling as the glaciers retreated, according to new linguistic evidence from indigenous languages throughout the New World.

“The evidence suggests that humans have been in the Americas for a very long time, perhaps 40,000 years. It also suggests that most native American languages derived from Ice Age inhabitants who were isolated in the Western Hemisphere for many millennia.

“Only along the west coast do languages appear to come from immigrants who arrived after the Ice Age 14,000 years ago, a Berkeley linguist reports” [10]

Think that’s far-fetched? Then try this next, where a 2019 DNA analysis pins the Blackfeet journey as plausibly located in the region of Arizona 17,000 years ago, on what could only be on a long-term journey towards the north:

[Blackfeet tribal member] “Crawford’s DNA story suggests his ancestors came from the Pacific, traveled to the coast of South America and traveled north […] The DNA group’s closest relatives outside the Americas are in Southeast Asia […] Its path from the Americas is somewhat of a mystery as there are no frequencies of the haplogroup in either Alaska or Canada” [11]

Yeah, a mystery so long as denial of perfectly plausible 40,000 years past voyages by sea persist. It should be noted here that Floyd maintained people were already here when the remote ancestor (long before mega-fauna extinction) Blackfeet precursor people arrived by sea.

Moving on…

“I saw in this land an Indian woman and a child who would not stand out among white blonds. These people [of the upper class] say that they were the children of the idols” [gods] – Pedro Pizarro, chronicler of the Spanish conquest of Peru

“The remarks made by Pizarro as to the skin-colour of the Peruvians are very important and, probably, truthful. Today one finds people who claim to be pure Indian in blood who are very light in colour, but it is not possible to be sure that they have not some white blood” [12]

The ‘culture zones’ miss (entirely) plausibility of different cultural origins from abroad i.e. 40,000 vs 13,000 years, intervals between, and more recent pre-Columbian arrivals (other than Viking) from both West & East.

Was there a lost boatload of Phoenicians in Brazil? It’s possible. [13]

And what about that sunken load of Roman amphora found in a bay in Brazil? [14]

Did the Olmec begin at the site of a seafaring landfall? It’s a fair question. As the ‘cradle of Meso-American civilization’ was the Toltec, Inca, Maya and Aztec ‘cultural ancestry’ handed down from the Olmec? There’s a likely source of the ‘misdirection of spirit’ ultimately expressed in Cahokia

On the other coast (Peru) we have the knotted string records system of Polynesia (and China before that.) [15]

On the other hand, Tlaxcala (the Cortez allied city mentioned by the authors) exhibits a deliberative council no more or less remarkable than the original indigenous councils of numerous tribes from the Rocky Mountain Front to the Atlantic seaboard and the Canadian woodlands to the present day northern Mexico. Nothing unusual there (except for the authors wondering at it located in a Meso-American city.)

Back in the Pacific Northwest of North America, just suppose the coast Indians are a culturally Polynesian precursor people. That would explain a LOT about a group of late arrivals (by North American oral history timelines) who differ radically from the inland groups. Did they bring the identical mathematical principles of oracle shared by the Western tribes’ Native American stick game & the I Ching of China? [16], [17]

Moving on again […] well, actually, what could go on and on is already enough. Now, finally closing this out, close your eyes and listen to a music composition from a West Papua Melanesian people and hear something identical to what you’d expect to be a ceremonial sound experience on the plains of North America:

[2] Unmodified Paine quote: “The Deist needs none of those tricks and shows called miracles to confirm his faith, for what can be a greater miracle than the creation itself, and his own existence? There is a happiness in Deism, when rightly understood, that is not to be found in any other system of religion. All other systems have something in them that either shock our reason, or are repugnant to it, and man, if he thinks at all, must stifle his reason in order to force himself to believe them. But 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”

“The Ukrainian Armed Forces are increasing their forces and gathering heavy equipment and personnel. The number of Ukrainian troops in the conflict zone has already reached 125,000, which represents half of the total composition of its Armed Forces” -Russian Foreign Ministry [1]

“We don’t know whether President Putin has made the decision to invade. We do know that he is putting in place the capacity to do so in short order should he so decide” -Antony Blinken [2]

The Russians fail to grasp how this second quote should be countered in media. In short, Russia is prepared to counter the upcoming Ukrainian invasion of the separatist (ethic Russian) region of Ukraine. Purely in terms of English language semantics, as employed to now, the propaganda art favors the NATO states. When Ukraine attacks the separatist region of Donbass, and Russia responds with a counter attack, the NATO states will call this a Russian invasion of Ukraine for the simple fact of so-called ‘de jure’ international boundaries, never mind the fact of the anti-ethnic-Russian bias and related criminality in this matter should be lain squarely on the shoulders of the NATO supported ultra-nationalist-neo-nazi infested Ukrainian side. [3], [4], [5] & [6]

Russia, meanwhile, has propagated three separate, and when taken together, confusing messages, the first is Russia has no intention of invading Ukraine and the second is, what Russia’s armed forces do on Russia’s territory (no matter in proximity to Ukraine’s borders) is solely Russia’s business and third, there are “red lines” the NATO states should not cross in Ukraine that counter Russia’s security interests.

This is clearly a Russian propaganda fail, and when Ukraine DOES attack the breakaway (ethnic Russian) Donbass region of Ukraine, and Russia counter-attacks to protect the ethnic Russian population, Western (NATO) propaganda will flood the Western liberal democracies’ media platforms with the (technically correct) fact Russian armed forces have ‘invaded’ Ukraine’s territory. Meanwhile in the events leading up to this highly likely scenario, with aggressive NATO exercises playing out in the Baltic region, and especially the Black Sea, Russia is losing its’ opportunity to reach the Western audience with effective message.

In short: Russia should be presenting a single, integrated message:

1) If Ukraine adheres to the Minsk accord (grants the Donbass autonomy) together with excluding NATO and there is no attack on the (ethnic Russian) separatist region but rather Kiev initiates sincere developments towards a cooperative relationship, Russia will have no interest in military intervention in Ukraine; BUT if there IS an attack on Ukraine’s ethnic Russian region and/or NATO continues developing Ukraine as its’ military platform on the border of the Russian heartland, there is NO QUESTION Russia will militarily intervene in Ukraine to protect the ethnic Russian populated areas of Ukraine and/or to fence NATO out, full stop.

This is a message that would resonate with people concerned with the related, increasing political tensions across Europe, by putting NATO squarely on the spot.

Meanwhile, going to Russia’s propaganda weakness on the Ukraine and NATO issues, revisiting Putin’s recent Valdai appearance is in order:

Putin, Valdai & Bloody Talons

“I have long observed one rule which prevents any inconveniences from such practices. It is simply this: to be concerned in no affairs I should blush to have made public, and to do nothing but what spies may see and welcome. When a man’s actions are just and honorable, the more they are known, the more his reputation is increased and established. If I was sure, therefore, that my valet de place was a spy, as he probably is, I think I should probably not discharge him for that, if in other respects I liked him” -Benjamin Franklin

This preceding statement concerning the infestation of 1780s Paris by spies during the American revolutionary alliance with France, attributed to the American Minister-Plenipotentiary to France, Benjamin Franklin, goes to his [Franklin’s] driving the French Foreign Minister, Charles Gravier (Count of Vergennes), out of his mind on a single point: Franklin refused to fire his valet who was known to be a British spy. Expanding on the quote (from reading history) Franklin’s attitude (and refusal to fire his valet) stemmed from his conviction that, given the British knowing that Franklin knew the man was a spy, everything the valet reported from Franklin’s conversations would be taken for disinformation.

We’ll come back to this.

Putin’s 2021 annual address to the Valdai Discussion Club struck me as showing a profoundly disillusioned man (in contrast to Putin projecting an oftentimes humorous, lively self-confidence in past.) Waxing philosophical, he seemed a man disabused of any notion he could believe in the olive branches offered in his polite habits of speech regarding the West, did not seem convinced in (his past conviction) a longstanding support for the primacy of international law will prevail, and seemed at a loss when advancing avenue to reasoned, stabilizing solutions when confronted with the malfeasance of NATO, and NATO’s rhetoric versus NATO’s actions (and much more.) His self confidence seems seriously eroded, or alternately stated, Putin seems resigned to understanding his many years proposed solutions of reason has been wasted and must inevitably be discarded in relation to the confounding behavior and intractable nature of those powers confronting Russia.

In a nutshell, his speech impressed as though Putin understood he were wasting his breath, finally accepting principled behaviors will find little reciprocity from the West in the 21st Century play of the “Great Game.”

The Great Misapprehension

Those embracing the misnomer “Cultural Marxism” will be jubilant at Putin’s comparing today’s Western values to the Soviet experiment at its formation. His characterization of this, although not without merit in defending a “healthy conservatism”, nevertheless embraces a cultural myopia; inter-generational socialization determines the shape of societies and Karl Marx’s utopian socialism had been birthed in Christian culture and features (however perverted in practice) early Christian ideal. Denuded of ‘God’, socialism carried secularism to extreme in application of Christian social principle where science was substituted for the mystic experience in humanity; if Marxism aspired to become the great enforcer of Jesus’ teaching “It would be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom” in matters of social equity, it must be stated (in short) why this experiment failed. There was no nurturing of the Human spiritual dimension. Marxism, as put into practice in the 20th Century, originated as oxymoron; a faux, inter-generational, culturally Christian shaped cult in denial of God. As a matter of fact cultures cannot easily overthrow their social origins. Marxism, and V.I. Lenin’s launching of this phenomenon on what was to become the Soviet Socialist Republics, was, culturally speaking, a Western ‘Christian’ event from inception to demise. It was, perhaps, the greatest example of denial in modern history (and in some respects, probably still is.)

Be that as it may, Putin is spot on in his defense of a “healthy” social conservatism, and despite his (probable) lack of understanding of the Western Christian cultures’ inter-generational socialization shaping Marxism, his comparison of Soviet experiment, to the one hundred years later (today’s) Western experiment, is not that far off the mark. Both are devoid of the necessary traditions feeding the need of the human spirit. What he appears to struggle with, however unaware, is the Western cultures’ spiritual necrosis originating with Calvinism, the ‘predestination’ infection inviting discarding lived morality as a rewarded experience. This is an infection which, mutated to one form or another (like a certain virus), has crossed every social boundary and buried the ‘do no harm’ axiom across the societies of Capitalism. The root at the evil Putin senses but does not (yet) fully grasp is not actually “Cultural Marxism” but is a Calvinism rooted, Western phenomenon of society-wide psychopathy.*

“I don’t know what to do”

The “I don’t know what to do” statement by Putin about the circumstance in Ukraine concerning NATO is likely the most telling remark revealing a palpable sense of helplessness. This is where one might have expected something along the lines of a ‘zero-sum’ push-back (at the least) but that’s not what we saw. While conceding NATO showed no sign of backing off a military build-up in a context of Ukrainian citizens having little to no say over the (German & American intelligence agencies installed) Bandera putsch regime opening the door to a spear-point aimed at the heart of Russia, Putin openly admits his hesitancy. His dilemma is understandable; NATO ‘all or nothing’ approach shows no inclination whatsoever to back off incorporating to itself a military development of Ukraine and the only recourse to prevent this developing threat would be to fence NATO out with resort to combat arms. This avenue would require Putin violate international law by launching what amounts to illegal ‘preemptive war’ and it is international law Putin has been trying to rescue from obliteration by NATO and NATO aligned states. His choice? Wait the “years” it will take for the Ukrainian people/state to sort putting their house in order (defaulting to the NATO military build-up) or take Eastern Ukraine to the Dnieper river based on international law’s presumptive right of the majority ethnic Russians located there to “Self-Determination.” Putin clearly does not wish to initiate the inevitable war NATO is thrusting upon Russia; but to wait “years” (even just a few years or a year or two) is to give up strategic advantage that could cost Russia dearly. With NATO states pumping arms into Ukraine, each month that passes insures any forthcoming war will be bloodier. No doubt Sergei Shoigu will have a strong opinion in regard to NATO forcing the burden of taking this decision onto Putin.

Bloody Talons

Here we’ll conclude with the too often under-examined point of taking responsibility. It is here yours truly comes closest to outright criticism of Vladimir Putin, relating to the information wars.

This point goes to the cynicism of awarding the Nobel Prize to Novaya Gazeta’s Dmitry Muratov for “defending free speech” in the context of Russia’s recent law (mirroring USA law) requiring organizations receiving funding from abroad to register as “foreign agents.” In fact Muratov’s newspaper, Novaya Gazeta, panders to the Western political lies undermining Russia and its designation as a ‘foreign agent” is absolutely well deserved. Muratov is certainly not a Russian patriot when, as editor-in-chief of Novaya Gazeta, example given, that yellow rag publishes a hit piece pushing ‘the Russians did it’ DNC hack lie. [7], [8]

Nobel Prize for political lies? The cynicism of using non governmental organizations to embed and/or recruit agents and manipulate persons, in this case Muratov, to undermine one’s own country, is certainly nothing new in the world of espionage, where there are three basic means of penetrating and/or using an organization to one’s advantage:

1) Turning an employee through some means such as blackmail, sex, bribery or appeal to a psychological weakness such as working on someone’s conscience or ideology and convince them to become your organization’s asset (agent/traitor)

2) Using psychology and/or disinformation to convince an organization’s staff to work to your advantage and/or commit acts against its own [in this case, national] interests (false flag/sale)

3) Placing your own officer within the organization as an employee (spy)

Novaya Gazeta’s editor-in-chief Muratov STRONGLY profiles as manipulated using method 2) of the preceding, although method 1) cannot be ruled out. Coming up through Russia’s security services and fully aware of these facts, when questioned by the ‘nobel laureate’, why didn’t Putin call Muratov out at Valdai? Is it because Russia has its own filthy players in the information wars? [9], [10]

Bloody Talons

In the embedded Valdai video, Muratov questions Putin at about 1:16:00, followed by Margarita Simonyan at about 1:28:00.

Putin should have detailed why Russia hadn’t (yet) gone far enough in shutting down the poison of Western style ‘free speech’ in the information wars; but instead he deferred to the ugliest player on his team, Russian master propagandist Margarita Simonyan. What is remarkable beyond Simoyan’s obvious lust for the rank fool Muratov’s blood is her stark familiarity in her interaction with Putin on a world stage; gloating in her sense of power. Simonyan is no patriot either, Russia’s well being is not the priority here, her argument doesn’t go to the underlying facts, isn’t well thought out & reasoned, rather her first instinct is to go for Muratov’s throat. At a meta level, the premier Russian propaganda attack dog, Simonyan, profiles as a psychopath killer.

Going to the Franklin quote that introduces this essay, Putin doesn’t only carry responsibility for keeping his personal character clean, but carries responsibility for keeping a clean character within all of Russia. Putin’s professional liar, Margarita Simoyan, makes a mockery of this. A clean house does not conceal a deadly black mold in the pantry.

 

*A warning to Russia: A single generation of children left by their parents to be raised by an unfiltered internet in the 21st Century and you could be there too; it won’t require the 400 years it took John Calvin’s social dementia to overtake and finally poison the wider Western cultures’ mentality beyond redemption. It’s a different world now.

‘Deutschland Uber Alles’

Čitajte na srpskom

Liberal Democracy in Europe

Nazi party membership in Germany was about 10% and yet not only were the German people controlled by and motivated to supporting fascism, this 10% led an aggressive imperialism to point of imposing will on their neighbors. With the European Union dominated by today’s Germany, there is a rather shocking comparison when we examine the ‘grand coalition’ of Angela Merkel’s expired political deal:

Rough party membership math:

Social Democrats 420,000
Christian Democrats 406,000
Christian Social Union 140,000

Total ‘grand coalition’ party members had been about 966,000, which applied as a percentage of approximately 60,000,000 (sixty million) eligible voters in Germany equals 1.6% (one point six percent) party members or less than 2% of Germans were making and driving policy for 60,000,000 (sixty million) German voters.

The new ‘traffic light’ coalition using the 2019 statistics (they won’t have changed radically)

Party membership:

Social Democrats 420,000
Greens 97,000
Free Democrats 66,000

Total party membership 583,000

Total voters 60,000,000

Or in the 21st Century ‘liberal democracy’ Germany, in its dominate position within the EU, the new coalition determines about 1% of Germans will enforce the ideology, policies and direction that not only Germany, but all of the European Union (and more) will be subjected to.

400,000,000 (four hundred million) European Union voters having policy made for them by the new German ‘traffic light’ coalition = 0.145% (not even two tenths of one percent), deciding the direction and fate of approximately one half of Europe. But it is more than that. It is as well about the European Union expansion, a de facto German imperialism imposing its will much more effectively that the Nazis had, with so-called soft power, normally enhanced-enforced on the dark side (blackmail, assassinations) by the relevant intelligence agencies:

Soft power

Soft power in politics (particularly in international politics), is the manipulation or operation of a reward and punishment system in the absence of (obvious) physical violence. Soft power involves shaping the preferences of others through appeal, attraction and (covert) threats or unpleasant consequences. The currency of soft power includes culture, political values, attraction and rewards

The new boss of the German soft power imperial project:

Olaf Scholz

Since his attendance at the 2010 Bilderberg as mayor in Hamburg, Scholz’ career has experienced a Bilderberg boost, advancing to the Social Democrats’ 2020 candidate for German Chancellor at the 2021 German parliamentary election

✓ supports a ‘sovereign’ European Union

In the new German ‘traffic light’ coalition it is the ‘green light’ will run the foreign policy. New foreign minister Annalena Baerbock (a naif ripe for manipulation by Bundesnachrichtendienst intelligence briefings) brings an Atlanticist orientation that is second to none when it comes to an Anglo-American trained German imperialist:

Annalena Baerbock

Annalena Baerbock was selected as the Green Party candidate for Chancellor in the 2021 German parliamentary election, when the Alliance 90/The Greens achieved their best ever result at 14.8% of the votes, winning 118 seats, and coming third behind the SPD (206 seats) and the CDU/CSU (196 seats)…

✓ supports the eastward expansion of NATO

✓ supports a more aggressive European Union foreign policy

Then, we have a ‘green’ nobody novelist-provincial politician becomes vice-chancellor, basically he is assigned a role of lobby for the green party line in formulating policy at the chancellery:

Robert Habeck

Robert Habeck is a German writer and politician. He has served as co-leader of Alliance ’90/The Greens since 2018 alongside Annalena Baerbock. Habeck passed his final secondary-school examinations in 1989 at the Heinrich …

✓ supports the neonazi regime in Kiev

But it is this guy holding the Ministry of Agriculture that people had better watch out for, because his behind closed doors role & influence will certainly be out-sized in the ongoing 21st Century’s German imperialism project when it comes the Greens holding the foreign ministry:

Cem Özdemir

Cem Özdemir is a German politician of the German political party Alliance 90/The Greens. He is of part of the carefully nurtured party fraction that brought The Greens from a pacifist party to a strongly militaristic (‘olive green’) stance, stating that “we Greens have lost our fear of departments that deal with security issues”

✓ founding member, European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR)

Recalling the present ‘liberal democracy’ iteration of German imperialism arrives on the scene at Strasbourg & Brussels with less than two tenths of one percent of the European electorate (Germany’s policy making front or the traffic light coalition determining future EU policy) the ‘green light’ also holds the right to appoint Germany’s next member (when von der Leyen’s term is expired) to the European Commission and it should be a no-brainer to assume this would be the European Union’s ‘green’ Special Rapporteur to the Western Balkans, the impeccably German imperialist who is on record stating “The Western Balkans is not our neighborhood, it is our inner-yard” … with a résumé which profiles as having Bundesnachrichtendienst asset (German CIA) written all over it:

Viola von Cramon

In August 2018, von Cramon announced that she would run for a parliamentary seat in the 2019 European elections. Since becoming a Member of the European Parliament, she has been serving on the Committee on Foreign Affairs. In this capacity, she is the Parliament’s rapporteur on relations to the Western Balkans. In 2020, she also joined the Special Committee on Foreign Interference in all Democratic Processes in the European Union

✓ opposes the right of self determination of peoples

✓ sleeps with Zelensky’s warmongers in Kiev

✓ furthers the ongoing NATO encirclement of Russia

In circumstance of ‘liberal democracy’ where in the European Union, less than two tenths of one percent make and drive policy, there must be factored in the additional structural phenomenon; the 583,000 Germans having captured the 400,000,000 voting EU citizens doesn’t change the nature of the hierarchy wherein it will be a handful of the 583,000 at the top, with lateral associations (intelligence agencies, corporate lobbies), will determine direction. Just one more unfortunate equation.

21st Century Imperial Germany’s Bundesnachrichtendienst ‘soft power’ project not only has played the Kremlin a fool in the ‘chancellor to president’ presumably peer-to-peer relationship, but moreover, in the trans-Atlantic dealings, Germany makes today’s USA look like the handicapped IQ, thug-enforcer-bodyguard it actually has become; a thick-skulled goon basking in a self important delusion of grandeur when manipulated on a world stage play strategized & energized by a thinly concealed central European imperial meme laundering its’ agenda.

People should stop a misdirected obsessing with the Americans and start examining the Germans.

A postscript would be, in this case where a short research determines the ‘pacifist’ aspirations are contradicted by the militarist associations and actions, I really would prefer there were some intelligent, ecosystem preserving policies and relevant laws with teeth. But I certainly wouldn’t welcome the 21st Century German imperialism into my parlor; to go about discussion in regards to arriving at positive outcomes in the case where an imperial German ‘liberal democracy’ determines the reality of ‘green’ refers to a case of gangrene as much as anything.

By Russell Bentley

I recently received the following email under the title – Media Request – comment for upcoming article

Russell, hello,

I’m a journalist for BuzzFeed News. I reported extensively in the Donbass during the war, although I’m not sure our paths crossed. But I believe we know each other. I’m writing to ask if you’d like to comment on a piece of information I’ll be including in an upcoming story. The story is not focused on you. However, in the course of my reporting I learned that you are one of the 250 people the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office is investigating for alleged terrorism-related offenses for fighting on the Russia-backed side of the war. Because I’ll be mentioning this in the article, I wanted to contact you to give you a chance to respond. Please let me know today if you’d like to comment on this matter. In describing you in the article, I’ll also mention your past drug conviction, as well as your time fighting in Donetsk.

Thank you,
Chris Miller

There’s no need to include here my insolent, insulting and profanity-laced reply, (perhaps Miller will be so kind as to publish it elsewhere, though he failed to do so, or even mention me at all in his article) but suffice to say, I compared the Ukraine Prosecutor General’s Office to a cesspool, and specifically called Miller a “presstitute”. That neo-nazi terrorists in the Prosecutor General’s Office are investigating me for “terrorism” because I have defended the citizens and civilians of Donbass from Kiev’s own genocide and ethnic cleansing programs is the the apex of hypocrisy and cynicism, a real life example of the comic book “Bizarro World” where everything is the exact opposite of what it is supposed to be. Equally as “bizarro” and hypocritical is Miller’s calling himself a “journalist”. He is a US government paid professional propagandist and disinformation specialist , an enemy of the truth and an inveterate liar. As for my “past drug conviction”, well, there is some truth to that, and I’ll address it, since Miller didn’t, but let’s take each in their turn. First, the Ukrainian Prosecutor General, and the abject ukrop quisling government as a whole. [1]

A quick Google search for “Ukraine corruption” brings up almost 46 million results. It has been ranked the ninth most corrupt country in the world, the most corrupt in Europe, and Ukraine’s corruption rank by country has averaged 117th over the past 22 years, which is, in fact, exactly where it is today, according to tradingeconomics.com, an international business and investment news service with no political ax to grind. So, despite occasional fluctuations and purely cosmetic rhetoric, for more than two decades, including the past eight years under direct and complete US/NATO/IMF suzerainty, the word “Ukraine”, as well as the nation itself, remains synonymous with “corruption”. Same as it ever was. And how could it be otherwise? [2], [3]

Since the Maidan “Revolution of Dignity” instigated by the political treachery of the EU reneging on a last minute treaty with then President Yanukovich, and cemented with the mass murder of over 100 police and protesters by “unknown assailants”, (crimes which remain unsolved by the brilliant sleuths of the General Prosecutors Office, in spite of compelling forensic, video, and eyewitness evidence, and even outright confessions by some of the snipers themselves) Ukraine has been run by a collection of neo-nazis and mafia billionaires, under the command of Gauleiter Joe Biden. [4], [5], [6], [7]

Biden assumed control of Ukraine, soon after the Maidan coup, with his State Department flunkies Geoffery Pyatt and Victoria “Nuland” Nudelman hand-picking the next president , Prime Minister and their entire administrations, right down to appointing Vitali Klitchko as Mayor of Kiev (which he still is to this day). This parade of kleptocrats and clowns included Petro Poroshenko, an alcoholic billionaire and ruthless gangster as the new President of Ukraine, and Mikael Sakashvili, the fugitive ex-President of Georgia, who was appointed Governor of the Odessa region, in spite of being wanted at the time in his former country for corruption charges involving assault and murder in Georgia (charges for which he was subsequently convicted and sentenced to six years in prison, a sentence which he is currently serving in Georgia.) This motley crew is hardly the type to inspire trust and confidence that justice will be served, and distrust for the justice system in Ukraine is widespread. In fact, Ukraine ranked 101 out of 109 countries in the 2017 Index of Public Integrity. Opinion polls taken in 2016, two years after the new puppet regime was installed, recorded that only 3 to 5 percent of the population had any trust in the country’s justice system. And small wonder… Is this a face you would trust? [8], [9], [10], [11]

Ukrainian Prosecutor General Irina Venediktova She has ways of making you talk…

As for the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office in particular, headed by the hatchet-faced Inquisitor Irina Venediktova, which is according to Miller, busy “investigating” 250 members of the Donbass Defense Forces (including myself) it has so far failed to identify, investigate, indict, prosecute or convict anyone in the Kiev sniper mass murders, the Odessa Trade Union mass murders, the MH-17 false flag mass murders, the theft of at least $4 billion of US and IMF aid, or the Burisma Oil scandal involving Hunter Biden, nor for the war crimes committed by at least seven US neo-nazis who served in Ukrainian military units that are currently being investigated by the FBI.

Those war crimes, committed by pro-Kiev US neo-nazis, involving multiple cases of kidnapping, rape, torture and murder of Ukrainian civilians, have been investigated since at least 2018, not by Ukrainian authorities, but by the US FBI. In fact, the main suspect in the case, Craig Lang, who is also wanted for a a double murder of an elderly couple in Florida, USA in April, 2018, has so far been protected from justice and harbored in Kiev by the Ukrainian government itself, including specifically the Prosecutor General’s Office. It is a fact that the SBU, the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ukrainian military are themselves all well known for kidnapping, torture and murder, so it is not far fetched to consider the possibility that Prosecutor Venediktova (who is also a sitting member of the National Security and Defense Council, which controls all the above organizations) is dragging her feet on bringing Lang and other war criminals to justice because she doesn’t consider kidnapping, torture and murder to be “crimes”, when applied by her colleagues and minions to the kind of people she thinks “deserve” it. And I guarantee, in her opinion, and Lang’s, I’d be exactly that kind of person.

A photo that neo-nazi Craig Lang once sent to me personally, on Facebook.

In their eyes, and apparently in Chris Miller’s, I and all who have defended the Russian people of Donbass from genocide and ethnic cleansing operations are “terrorists”. I did serve for about a year total in the DPR military and police, but I never went on a single offensive combat operation. I was, once, on a recon mission behind enemy lines, but we did not make contact, and no shots were fired. Every single shot I have ever fired in this war has been in self-defense, in a defensive position, shooting at soldiers, mercenaries and neo-nazi volunteers like Lang, who were attacking our position and shooting directly at me and my comrades. The German nazis called Russian Partizans and European Resistance fighters “terrorists” too, and these torturers, killers and war criminals of the current Kiev regime are no different or better than their nazi forebearers. It is an honor for me that these blood-thirsty beasts know I am their enemy and are terrified of it. As well they should be. Ukraine will soon be liberated, and then it will be scum like Venediktova who will be prosecuted and punished for their crimes, and I hope I live long enough to see it. I don’t want to see them tortured or killed, I just want justice done. I want to see them brought to Donbass in work battalions to repair and rebuild every single thing broken or destroyed by their attacks on the peaceful people of Donbass, ordered by the likes Venediktova, and carried out by mad dogs like Lang. There are two kinds of people in this world, those who build, and those who destroy. By bringing those who destroyed Donbass here to rebuild it, perhaps we can rehabilitate them. One thing is certain – by the time they finish re-building every single thing they have destroyed here, they will be very different people than the vermin they are today.

CHRIS MILLER – PSEUDO-JOURNALIST, PROFESSIONAL PROPAGANDIST AND NEO-NAZI FANBOY

Chris Miller introduced himself to me with a lie. “I’m a journalist for Buzzfeed News.” This is exactly the kind of lie he and his ilk of highly trained disinfo specialists are expert at – using what appears to be the truth to tell a lie. Yes, Miller’s articles do appear on the Buzzfeed News page, and he probably does get a check from them every month, but if you know his backstory, like I do, you know that his fealty is to whatever the owners of the US government tell him it is.

Chris Miller, jive-ass hipster bullshit artist, posing as a “journalist”.

Buzzfeed passes itself off to young, ignorant and impressionable naifs as a cool, progressive, alternative media “news” source, while being in fact a gossip rag and soap opera digest which is the draw and the cover for the occasional political disinfo story that is their real raison d’etre. Buzzfeed is a product of the Democratic Party Deep State, having been the first and main publisher of the “Steele Dossier”, a bogus hitpiece against Trump, later debunked by myriad sources, including most of the US mainstream media itself. With their penchance for plaigarism, fake news and stupid stunts, it is small wonder that in a 2017 survey among US readers by The Guardian (UK), BuzzFeed was voted the second least trustworthy source among American readers, with only “Occupy Democrats” being lower-ranked. “Yes,” you might say, “but Buzzfeed won the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting in 2021.” Indeed, which is every bit as appropriate as war criminals Henry Kissinger and Barrack Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize. In other words, a tragic joke and a disgrace, and the apex of hypocrisy. [12]

Buzzfeed is also a pioneer of “advertorial” advertising, an insidious mixing of advertising and “information/news” content that is almost subliminal, and is primarily of interest to major corporations as opposed to smaller or local businesses. The potential for the political abuse of such type of “advertising” is obvious. Which brings us to Miller’s previous, most interesting and most important employer – the CIA. Well, Radio Free Europe, (RFE) which was founded by the National Committee for a Free Europe, an anti-communist CIA front organization that was formed by Allen Dulles in 1949. Dulles later became the first civilian Director of the CIA, The Committee directed operations of RFE, and from 1951 to 1971, RFE was directly financed by the CIA, as an “anti-Communist propaganda” organization. There is an old saying in the CIA – “Once CIA, always CIA”. RFE was and is CIA, and Miller spent 10 years working for them in Eastern Europe. He is an expert propagandist and disinfo warrior, a professional bullshit artist, and his “new” job at Buzzfeed only continues that work. And the article Miller mentioned in his email to me is a perfect example of exactly how it works. [13], [14], [15], [16], [17]

A LIMITED HANGOUT

A limited hangout is a well known and often used disinfo technique where a limited amount of negative info about one’s own side is published in order to create a facade of openness and honesty, when in fact, it is a damage control and misdirection technique. As CIA agent and later whistleblower Victor Marchetti explained, a limited hangout is “a favorite and frequently used gimmick of the clandestine professionals. When their veil of secrecy is shredded and they can no longer rely on a phony cover story to misinform the public, they resort to admitting—sometimes even volunteering—some of the truth while still managing to withhold the key and most damaging facts in the case. The public, however, is usually so intrigued by the new information that it never thinks to pursue the matter further.” [18], [19]

It turns out that the article Miller was writing was about the seven US citizens who had fought on the Ukrainian side of the Donbass War who were being investigated by the FBI for war crimes, one of whom, Craig Lang, is also wanted for a double murder in the USA. The fact that the FBI was in Ukraine investigating war crimes, and the fact that the basis for these investigations includes compelling and irrefutable physical, video and eyewitness evidence of horrific crimes, including kidnapping, rape, torture and multiple murders, and would have become public sooner or later, forced Western propagandists like Miller and Buzzfeed into conducting a limited hangout disinfo operation of the “We got the few bad apples, justice is served, nothing more to see, move on” variety. And in fact in the final published version of Miller’s article, there was no mention of me or of my “previous drug conviction”. Here’s why  [20], [21]

“Drug Dealer” Bentley, back in the day…

In 1996, I was arrested, along with seven other co-defendants, for being a part of a marijuana smuggling operation that moved hundreds of kilos of cannabis from Mexico to multiple destinations in the USA and Canada between 1991 and 1996. In 1996, I plead guilty to the fact that in 1992, I had indeed been in possession of 500 kilos of cannabis, and was sentenced to 63 months in prison for it. Unlike all my other co-defendants, I was the only one of the group who refused to “cooperate” with the cops or agree to testify. The others, equally or more guilty than I was, cooperated, and got reduced sentences of 18 months or a year and a day. Even the “kingpin” leader of the operation, who made multi-millions of dollars, only got three years compared to more than five years for me. So at least half of my sentence was for refusing to cooperate, not for cannabis possession. I did my five years in prison, plus four more years of “supervised release”, and my debt to society is paid in full, for a crime I committed 30 years ago.

It should also be noted, as it was in the official investigation, that our smuggling crew had two ironclad rules – no violence for any reason, and no hard drugs bought, sold or used. We only moved cannabis. My primary job was driving 100 pound loads from Mexico to Minnesota, wholesaling to distributors, and bringing the money back to the kingpin in South Texas. I was very good at my job. I made $25,000 per trip, which is pretty good pay for a couple of weeks’ work. But if I had instead moved 100 pounds of hard drugs like cocaine, heroin or meth, I could have made about a quarter million dollars per trip instead of $25,000. And, in fact, I had the opportunity and many offers to do so, and easily could have done so, had I wanted to. But I always refused. For moral reasons.

Cannabis is now legal in thirty three US states, and soon will be, nationwide, as it is in ten other countries, including Canada, Belgium and Holland. In fact, during the time I was smuggling weed, I was also a major player in the Marijuana Legalization Movement on the national and international levels, and I am one of the people who actually helped change the laws. But yes, it was illegal when I was a smuggler, and I did break the law, and I paid a hefty price for it too. But while I was admittedly an outlaw, I was never a criminal. I never hurt anybody. In fact, I am not the least bit ashamed or sorry for it, and make no apologies to anyone at all for it. The law I broke was stupid and unjust, and the fact that it is now changed only proves that there was no real crime, and I was simply punished for being a bit too far ahead of my time.

And here’s the point of all this, not one single ukrop propagandist, who brings up the subject of my conviction, including Miller, has ever called me a “marijuana smuggler” or said I was convicted of “marijuana possession”. It is always, every single fucking time, “drug dealer”. Which is semi-technically true, but still a lie. Because alcohol and tobacco are also, technically, and in reality, “drugs”. And in fact, both alcohol and tobacco are far more damaging to the individual, and to society in general than cannabis, and anyone who disputes that fact is either an idiot or a liar, or both. So, by this criterion, every corporation and every corner store that sells alcohol or tobacco is also a “drug dealer”, and dealing much more dangerous drugs than I ever did.

In the USA, alcohol directly kills 95,000 people every year, from overdose and illness. Add to that over 10,000 deaths and 290,000 serious injuries from DWI, not to mention addiction, domestic abuse, etc, and you begin to get an idea of the dangers of alcohol as a “drug”. But the damage caused by alcohol to individuals and society is eclipsed by the destruction that tobacco wreaks – 480,000 annual deaths directly related to tobacco use, ten years less average life expectancy, and an annual cost to society for medical care directly related to tobacco use in the USA of more than $300 Billion per year. In Russia, according to official studies, more than a million Russians die from alcohol and drugs every year, more than 500,000 directly from alcohol, and 300,000 from tobacco use. But for cannabis use, the statistics are clear, world-wide, and absolutely beyond dispute – not one single person, anywhere, has ever died from cannabis overdose or medical complications directly related to cannabis use. Not one, ever. To quote the US DEA report, “No deaths from marijuana overdose have (ever) been reported.” This fact is so well known and widely accepted by all medical surveys and government statistics that anyone who disputes it is an idiot and a liar, and an asshole. Period. [22], [23], [24], [25]

So, there IS a distinction between “drugs”, and anyone who calls me a “drug dealer” without mentioning the specific drug, is a liar and a hypocrite, unless they usually call convenience store clerks who sell cigarettes and bartenders who sell beer “drug dealers” too. And the ukrop trolls and presstitutes like Miller who call me a “drug dealer” instead of a weed smuggler, do so on purpose, with perjorative intent, trying to equate my breaking an unjust and stupid and now repealed law almost 30 years ago with contemporary mass murderers, rapists, torturers and war criminals. Don’t fall for their bullshit. Respect for the truth is the basis of all morality, and these liars are absolutely bereft of it.
