From Dishwashers to Fighter Jets
'Breeding is no substitute for intelligence. Often the death of it.'
This won't end well for Zelensky. He'll be hunted down like a dog. (Poor dogs.) There'll be nowhere to hide.
He can't back out. He probably knew he couldn't even before Bojo came to visit in April. The Right Sector will hang him from a Kiev lamppost.
He can't run to Russia. Oh yes he could - that would probably give him his best chance. Flee to Donbass? No. They have capital punishment.
He won't be safe in Europe either. Or the US. They'll always know where he is.
People have long laughed at how he's only a 'coked-up puppet'. This may be true. The brazen things he's done and said can only seem plausible if you mix fear and coke with a twist of Kiev lemon.
Anyway. It's Saturday night. It's time for a single malt. Or used to be. We've sworn off spirits completely. And gone as vegetarian as we can. Because it's healthier and cheaper. Sir Macca says 'vegan' is OK, but we'll have to check back to see what that means.
There are a lot of important events this week. In arbitrary order, they include the Tucker monologue with the subtle revelation about Bojo in Kiev and the ongoing Donbass referendums.
Donbass referendums? Yes. Four referendums in four eastern Ukraine regions. The voting started on 23 Sept and will end after 27 Sept. Five days. Hastily organised but carried out flawlessly so far, after two days. The only flaws have been the intermittent shelling by Zelensky and his Nazis.
Here's the crunch. A bit of judo thinking. The people in eastern Ukraine have been under attack for over eight years. Russia couldn't help them back in 2014. The US was waiting for Russia to come to their rescue, so NATO could move in. And Russia wasn't strong enough back in 2014 to stand up to NATO and the US.
But now they are. That makes all the difference. That's why Russia could announce the SMO on 24 February. (And lucky for them, as NATO/US had been planning to invade Russia in mid-March.)
Make no mistake. Putin's good at judo, but Russians are really good at chess. They calculate extensively. They almost always open with a queen's pawn, as you may notice. If Putin announces on 24 February that he has to go in with a 'special military operation', then he knows not only that Russia can win, but that Russia will win.
The term 'special military operation' seems to have a legal significance. Russia's been bound by limitations, and the term SMO indicated this. Renaming the operation now also has a significance, the most important aspect being the following, if you haven't figured it out already.
Russia, together with their allies in the Donbass, have basically cleaned up there. What remains are intermittent terrorist attacks on civilians and the nuclear power plant.
The UN team were just there to inspect. They saw NATO shells, yet didn't dare specify who was doing the shelling.
Following the referendums, and pursuant to convincing voter turnout and 'DA' votes, Russia's Duma can then vote on ratifying the application of those four regions to join the Russian Federation, which in turn means that further attacks by the Comedian will be attacks on Russia, not an outpost of someone else's rogue country. And that means that Russia can respond in a completely different way.
Now onto Tucker Carlson.
This clip is a couple of days old. Why pick him out?
Because of Bojo. Boris Johnson.
This was a bit of revelation. We all heard about this development at the time, but things were so bewildering. There were rumours but not much more. Now Tucker drops a bomb.
And granted that Tucker can be annoyingly myopic at times, but you won't get closer to clarity and sanity in the western MSM. You have to pick at your plate of vittles with discretion. Follow through this clip if you haven't seen it before, but stop and meditate at or just after the two-minute mark when he starts quoting Foreign Policy Magazine.
Back in April: 'Russian and Ukrainian negotiators appeared to have tentatively agreed on the outlines of a negotiated interim settlement'.
You may remember that Russia initially brought forces to the outskirts of Kiev. Obviously their intent was never to take the city. It's too big. It was perhaps a demonstration of force. According to Tucker, Russian desires at that point were very simple. They wanted to make sure they didn't get another NATO country on their borders.
But what happened? We're talking about six weeks into things at that point.
'But the Biden administration adamantly opposed this settlement', says Tucker. Biden's advisers wanted a total regime change war against Russia.
We all might remember hearing that too. It sounded so ridiculous. Few state leaders are as popular as Putin is in Russia. What's wrong with them in Washington? Oh well. It turns out, according to Tucker, that they were completely serious.
[Where did those bozos go to school?]
Tucker goes on and makes it even better. This move by the maniacs in Washington, he says, was to avenge the election of Donald Trump in 2016, which those idiots evidently thought Russia was responsible for.
This can't be real, you'll be thinking. Indeed. But perhaps things are that out of whack in the DC area?
'So on April 9th of this year the White House dispatched its hapless cutout, then prime minister Boris Johnson, to Kiev. According to Ukrainian news media, Johnson communicated two messages to the Zelensky government.'
Below is the first of those messages.
At that point, things are just off the charts. They get just too bizarre. There's no way any adult is going to take them seriously.
And Tucker seems to again be suffering from myopia, or a severe lack of information. Things were never that simple for Russia.
Yet dispatching Bojo to Kiev - something many of us remember - was real. Telling Bojo to tell the Comedian that he couldn't continue negotiating peace was real.
And no, the poor coke-head had no choice. But he probably didn't have much of a choice anyway, if Right Sector threatened to hang him from a Kiev lamppost if he negotiated. Making one wonder why they were negotiating in the first place.
But negotiate they did. And the Biden administration stopped the negotiations. Apparently because they were still angry that Hillary had lost the 2016 election?
Did you get that?
Remember when Google management had a cry fest after Trump won? Remember when one of their execs said they were ready for 2020 and would never let 2016 happen again?
How dangerously out of touch are those people anyway? Do any of you reading this have access to nuclear launch codes? The Biden people do.
Again: The Biden people do.
(The rest of that clip will have you wondering even more. Proceed with caution. Yet note that the clip got only 1.2 million views, not an impressive figure for a Tucker monologue.)
(The original segment ended with a sober word from Doug Macgregor. It's cut out of this clip. Perhaps it was too sober.)
Oh it's glorious times in Russia and eastern Ukraine. Their happiness is unbounded. Here's Patrick Lancaster back at it on 23/9.
Says one commenter:
'You know, it's very rare these days for journalists to do actual journalist things like talk to locals, do some on the ground investigating, and actual reporting.'
The Ghost of Judith Miller.
Bernhard of MoA noticed something endearing about the New York Times.
And a commenter had this to add: (https://is.gd/8ej4dK)
'It should come as no surprise to any on here the levels of disinformation the western media spew out on a daily basis, it has after all been going on for centuries. However, we can agree that before now there was the odd dissenting news outlet who managed to produce some actual truths. Today though, it's very clear that the level of lies are off the scale and it's pretty clear why. Never before has our western world come as close to extinction as it does now, press rooms are in panic mode right now, the end is nigh, truths are no longer relevant. If the rest of the world wins then we are fucked and we'll have to press the button. This long drawn out car crash is painful to watch and live through, the ordinary man or woman has no idea how fucked they are, and the media will not be telling them anytime soon how really bad it is. The media will only tell the truth when it's too late. Until then, avoid reading, watching, or listening to anything from the media in order to keep your sanity and in order to enjoy the last few months of your lives.'
A Failed Globalist Experiment
This has been tidied up a bit. Reads a bit like Martin Luther or the Declaration of Independence. (That’s a great site, BTW. Diplos contribute from time to time.)
The EU is a failed globalist experiment. It never offered more than the pretence of a true democracy. At the unelected top, it was always a technocracy of hand-picked corporate frontmen.
It has destroyed the economies of all its member states through incompetence and corruption.
It has caused chaos and social unrest in communities by forcing mass immigration on unwilling countries.
It has interfered in the internal affairs of member states far beyond any powers granted them.
It has presumed to write new laws which take primacy over a nation's own justice system.
It has created absurd new layers of bureaucracy and regulations which make businesses uncompetitive.
It is today dominated by the WEF and Klaus Schwab's minions who are pushing the Great Reset and consider the Ukraine conflict as a step towards it.
Statements, such as those delivered by Annalena Baerbock on where her loyalties lie, should outrage all Europeans. They should also enlighten them.
Putin's remarks on a special day.
Comments are precious.
He is such a well spoken leader. That's unique now
i wish my country had a statesman like this !
Rational, reality based, no hallucinatory grandiosity. One of the adults on the planet.
Super Putin, Glory to Russia.🎉❤❤
Great work ❤
I am very greatful you post this. I'm in Australia and our media has strict bias, we can't watch this sort of comment on a public TV channel. We have to sneak around the internet like mice, hiding from the government cat.
Love this master of our time from Ethiopia 🇪🇹🇷🇺🇪🇹
The world needs a wise, courageous and righteous leader like President Vladimir Putin.🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺👏👌👍✊💪
TRULY a civilizational leader. Honest, virtuous, valiant & Righteous. I being a Hindu 🙏🕉️ Indian has lot of love and respect towards Vladimir Putin. Wish Our leaders were like him.
We stand in solidarity with the people of Russia. Much respect and love from Canada.
there is not a single politician in the current UK government that demonstrate a breadth of knowledge comparable to President Putin
I really wish that western leaders had the morality and courage, no wonder we never hear any full speech of President Putin on our news
From Dishwashers to Fighter Jets
Watch this. And try to hold down your supper. She even looks like she’s studied little Adolf’s old films from his beer hall talks. (There’s a lot more going on here.)
But don’t miss the dishwasher bit.
There you go. Etch that in digital archival stone. That would easily be Clip of the Year™ if there weren’t so much tragedy behind this wondrous ambulatory disaster.
Foreign Policy Magazine pegged her as 'aristocratically inept' over a year ago. Things get only worse.
‘Breeding is no substitute for intelligence. Often the death of it.’
Rub your eyes. Pinch yourselves. Read this.
'At the Munich Security Conference in 2015, von der Leyen publicly defended the German refusal to supply Ukraine with weapons. Stressing that it was important to remain united in Europe over Ukraine, she argued that negotiations with Russia, unlike with Islamic State jihadists, were possible. Germany sees Ukraine and Russia as a chance to prove that in the 21st century, developed nations should solve disputes at the negotiating table, not with weapons, she said. In addition, she noted, Russia has an almost infinite supply of weapons it could send in to Ukraine. She questioned whether any effort by the West could match that or, more important, achieve the outcome sought by Ukraine and its supporters. On the contrary, von der Leyen said giving the Ukrainians arms to help them defend themselves could have unintended and fateful consequences. 'Weapons deliveries would be a fire accelerant', von der Leyen was quoted as telling the Süddeutsche Zeitung daily. 'And it could give the Kremlin the excuse to openly intervene in this conflict.'
But Ursula has blood ties to the Bandera Nazis. Did you know that?
Strategically, it would have made more sense to supply the Poroshenko Nazis (and their friends in Right Sector) back then, because Russia didn't have the firepower to withstand NATO. Today, however, they do.
Ursula, otherwise known by her other first name Gertrud or her nickname 'Rosie' which she used when fleeing the left-wingers in Germany for the London School of Economics (and taking on the family name of another of her famous ancestors, an infamous slave trader from South Carolina) may not have been elected to her current position as monarch of 800 million that she's decided to doom to dissolution, but in local German politics she was elected twice. Sort of. At least one of her election campaigns was tainted by hanky-panky and by her father's interference, but she's close to being a blue-blood, so that's OK. As is cheating on one's supposed doctoral thesis and on her official German government CV. Hey, how's someone to know that data travels all the way back home from Stanford California?
Rub your eyes. Pinch yourselves. Europe as a continent is home to 800,000,000 people. Meaning it's almost as big as China or India and dwarfs both the United States and Russia.
And the welfare of this sub-continent is in the hands of a woman that Foreign Policy Magazine last year described as mediocre at best. A woman with a long CV of screwing up.
Good luck, Europe. If her crazy idea to censor the Internet at ISP level and under her control or her nightmarish proposal for mandatory Covid vaccines for everyone doesn't get to you, then perhaps her astonishing support for her blood-related Bandera Nazis will.
Gertrud Ursula von der Leyen, née Albrecht, descending from two somewhat blueish and somewhat dubious bloodlines that link her to both South Carolina slave traders and the infamous Bandera Nazis currently at the core of the conflict in the Ukraine, was good for Mutti Merkel for a while, mostly in the image department. But when it comes to doing something more challenging, such as thinking, our lovely Ursula always loses it. And good aristocrats, even those of the fake variety, have a destructive streak and a stubbornness so they can never ever admit they're wrong, no matter how many millions of lives are at stake.
All but 6+ million of us made it through the Covid pandemic. No thanks to Ursula who repeatedly pushed for more mandatory rubbish than the worst of them in North America.
Ursula can scare people when she opens her mouth to talk, before a single word is uttered. The mad shit that comes out of that hole at times - it's too scary for words. The woman simply doesn't have a disciplined sophisticated mind.
But she knows how to lie with the best of them - really scary.
Ursula also likes to censor stuff. She earned the nickname 'ZENSURSULA' back home.
Want to see how bad things can get?
Note: that's a DRUPAL link - to the Drupal website. That's how serious it is.
'Among German geeks, she is known as 'Zensursula', a combination of 'Zensur' (German for 'censorship') and 'Ursula'. She has been pushing for legislation to force ISPs to censor the web much in the same way that China does.'
Here she is.
Zensursula has seven children. Many of them are her own. Can you imagine what it must be like growing up in that cellblock?
Here's a tribute to her.
Clearly the woman is stupid. Everyone with two days web experience knows why that's a bad idea.
Ursula's gone ahead and blocked RT.com and Sputnik on satellites. This wasn't a vote in the European Union Parliament or anything. Oh no. Ursula just got down off her pedigree show horse and put her foot down and ordered it to happen. Never mind that the good Russian sites are still up there. Ursula's never seen RT.com or Sputnik - but she feels confident in calling them 'propaganda' outlets, something anyone who frequents them knows isn't true. But Ursula doesn't worry much about truth. She lied in her dissertation (twenty-seven times) and she lied on her official government CV, so why shouldn't she lie here?
Ursula von der Leyen, aka Gertrude 'Rosie' Albrecht, is one of the most despicable specimens around today, and she has the blood of hundreds of thousands on her hands. Welcome to the club, Rosie. The Ghouls Gallery.
'What's remarkable is not that she has failed so badly in the position. She rose, after all, by playing on her family connections. What is, however, remarkable is she has failed in so nearly the same way as in her last two positions.'
'She obtained her position through a kind of incestuous, image-obsessed politics that made bungling an inevitability.'
'Furthermore, von der Leyen deleted cell phone data and censored documents in ways that raised the suspicions of experts. The evasions were so extreme that Tobias Lindner, defense expert in the Bundestag, asked prosecutors to investigate von der Leyen for potential criminal wrongdoing.'
'Von der Leyen failed at it in a truly spectacular manner.'
Vladimir Zelensky is a comedian. At best. His backer is an infamous billionaire oligarch financier of the bloody Azov Battalion. Zelensky used to play chopsticks on the piano with his dick. Had them rolling in the aisles.
Then his oligarch backer had a brainstorm. A television comedy series called 'Servant of the People'. Zelensky to play the lead. A high school history teacher who wants to root out all the corruption in the Ukraine. Talk about topical. The series is an enormous success. Both Zelensky and his Azov backer make millions and billions and start stuffing bank accounts in the Caymans and buying properties in Tuscany and along the Riviera.
Now comes the final part. Following on the cue and contents of the television series - for they knew exactly what the people of the Ukraine really wanted - they founded a new political party called - can you guess? Servant of the People. And Zelensky went on the stump. Segueing directly from television to reality. Same platform.
What's the difference?
An end to the genocide in the Donbass. Abide by the Minsk Accords. Stop persecuting people because they are Jewish or Russian. Purge the Bandera Nazis.
Servant of the People won by 70+%. Did he actually do anything he'd promised? Of course not. Now they had power. Now they could rifle and skim off even more loot. Things were going great. Then Victoria Nuland got involved.
The Ukraine is a quagmire. And Rosie Ladson's in over her head. And once again making a cock-up of things. Except this time it's not about cheating on a thesis. Or making false claims on a governmental CV. This time the fate of eight hundred million innocent people is involved.
And Gertrud Ursula, by what she perceives as her divine right, is leading those eight hundred million to their ruin.
'Developed nations should solve disputes at the negotiating table, not with weapons.' - Rosie
Actually that's more true of undeveloped nations, Rosie. It's first with 'civilisation' one finds 'empire' and 'warfare'. Left to only be themselves, humans have an uncanny ability to just get along and mindfully make sure things stay that way.
'Russia has an almost infinite supply of weapons it could send in to Ukraine.' - Rosie
Aber nicht wahr, Rosie. What you knew seven years ago holds in spades today, Liebchen. Today they have even more. Today no one on this planet can touch them. Zig when you're supposed to zag and you're toast.
'Weapons deliveries would be a fire accelerant.' - Rosie
You think so, Rosie? Daß glaubst du?
'It could give the Kremlin the excuse to openly intervene in this conflict.' - Rosie
Not an excuse, Rosie. Fifteen thousand excuses. Fifteen thousand subhuman excuses. They're not an excuse. They're the reason. Something the 'Kremlin' would have liked to do - felt morally compelled to do - back in 2015 but couldn't do. For the excuse is all on your friends in the US, Rosie, and you know it. It's they who've been waiting for an excuse. And they think it's cool with thermonuclear war. In fact they'd not only welcome it, they want it, Rosie. They know how to survive a thermonuclear war, Rosie. And don't fret, dear: they'll save you too.
No matter what it takes, Ursula von der Leyen must be stopped.
Ursula von der Leyen sits atop the European Commission. The people there are not elected. And those who are elected don't get to propose legislation or do any of the cool things Ursula can do, like shutting down satellite links. MEPs get to come to big meetings that look like a scene out of Star Wars 2 and comment on whatever Ursula and her friends are up to. They can vote on Ursula's proposals. But they can't come with proposals of their own. And they better be careful what proposals they don't vote for. The system is, regardless if there's a better word - and there's not - undemocratic. The EEC turned into a fascist state. And Ursula feels right at home.
Ursula must be stopped. Not next week, not tomorrow, but right now. Stopped. And any nation worthy of its name must leave that horrific construct. And do it now.
