Midnight in Moscow
Cause for concern? Or worry?
Four regions of former Ukraine formally joined Russia today. There are still several steps remaining before the transition is complete, but there were wild and organised celebrations tonight across the Russian capital.
Access to news 'from the other side' was severely damaged today. For reasons unknown, RT's live channel on Rumble suddenly ceased to exist. There's always been an alternate channel at Odysee, but that one really sucks. Whoever did the designing and engineering over there needs to get a new job. And RT's own live player is beyond hopeless, most often timing out before it starts. One can wonder how keen Margarita is on getting her message out.
Transmission across VPN has improved in the past fortnight. The many forces behind the scenes have resorted to attacks on DNS servers to block RT. For, as we all know, as ZENSURSULA has told us, the RT POV is simply propaganda and nothing else, and we should not be allowed to hear it.
The real news from the other side is still there, has always been there, but the tragically retarded Ursula will never grasp that. Russia abounds in TV and news sites. KP.RU, RIA.RU, LENTA.RU, just to name a few. A quick web search turns up hundreds. Many are in English as well. And most of them don't need VPN either.
Here are a few grabs from a Putin speech at Red Square.
Putin is emotional. He's not emotional very often. We've seen his speeches before. He's normally not emotional. But here he was. That's our take at any rate.
Rory Suchet watched an appearance of Jens Stoltenberg and commented that Stoltenberg was nervous. His interviewee agreed, but we didn't see that. To us, Stoltenberg was just his tragically stupid bumbling lying usual self. YMMV.
Of course we're in a very bad place right now. Cuban missile crisis? That was mostly drama anyway, as it turns out, something Nikita gifted to JFK. But as perceived? No, this is hundreds of times worse. What makes it so scary is that the US is hell-bent on destruction, ostensibly led by a dishonest idiot who is fatally weak and unfit for any managerial position, and certainly not the current job.
This is our take of course. But a POTUS has to be the tempering voice. A POTUS has to be surrounded by allies in that Oval Office. Why? Because all the rest of those career warmongers are going to be popping over with the most ridiculous and insane ideas. Toppling governments. Exploding cigars. A POTUS has to be surrounded by people who stop the madness from spreading further.
For the official current POTUS, this is not the case. Every single last really bad idea gets airplay, and then it's Pedo Pete's turn - to do the one thing he's actually learned in 50+ years in politics: lie.
The world needs temperance. The US midterms are 40 days away. Let's hope things don't get too out of hand and that whoever takes over after November can do a decent job. The rest of us will be here on the sidelines, waiting with bated breath, hoping for you, and damning you.
