An orchestrated war with Russia
has all of us marked for extinction
“My case rests. There is no countervailing evidence against the fact
that unadulterated evil rules the West and is driving the world to extinction.”

Poor Uncle Sam! — he’s not getting what he wants.
The way things are supposed to work on this planet is like this: in the United States, the power structures (public and private) decide what they want the rest of the world to do. They communicate their wishes through official and unofficial channels, expecting automatic cooperation. Read More

“Americans need to pay attention to the fact that their government
is just a collection of crazed stupid fools.”
The Saker reports that Russia is preparing for World War III, not because Russia intends to initiate aggression but because Russia is alarmed by the hubris and arrogance of the West, by the demonization of Russia, by provocative military actions by the West, by American interference in the Russian province of Chechnya and in former Russian provinces of Ukraine and Georgia, and by the absence of any restraint from Western Europe on Washington’s ability to foment war.

IS RUSSIA A PAPER TIGER?
According to Raimondo, Russia is a paper tiger. The Russians, he argues, don’t have any major weapons to wipe the floor with the US army. That’s just propaganda and lies put out by the US army itself to justify further increases to its already bloated military budget. “Help! Help! The Russian are coming!” they keep crying cry, hoping to see more money shoveled their way. Read More

If the US and NATO do anything silly to provoke the Russian bear, they can expect to be eaten alive.

“Since mid-2014 the Pentagon has run all manner of war games – as many as 16 times under different scenarios – pitting NATO against Russia. All scenarios were favorable to NATO. All simulations yielded the same victor: Russia.” — Pepe Escobar
INTRO: 15-second video
One lesson from military history is that once mobilization for war begins, it takes on a momentum of its own and is uncontrollable. This might be what is occurring unrecognized before our eyes. Read More

This is a key article which needs to be read very carefully. Here the Saker excels himself. Unfortunately, the article is pretty somber and depressing to read. It points out that, if push came to shove, Russia would have no chance in winning a major war against the US and its bellicose Nato allies. Here is the Evil Empire now doing everything in its power to provoke Russia into lashing out in retaliation against its provocations, in effect initiating World War Three. Russia, in short, is being pushed to the limit. It is having its nose tweaked by the US and its Nato lackeys. The question is: What can Putin do about this? His options, it seems, are very limited.

RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN
“If someone thinks they can commit a heinous war crime, kill our people and get away with it, suffering nothing but a ban on tomato imports, or a few restrictions in construction or other industries, they’re delusional. We’ll remind them of what they did, more than once. They’ll regret it. We know what to do.”
This 2-part presentation consists of two short articles by two different writers, Finian Cunningham and Dan Glazebrook, giving their separate viewpoints on the current conflict between Russia and Turkey which threatens to escalate into a major confrontation between the world powers. Both writers seem to be in agreement that Turkey’s reckless action in shooting down a Russian plane over the Syria-Turkey border was an act of war that must have had the secret backing of the United States.
RUSSIA TO TURKEY : ‘STOP SUPPORTING TERRORISM!’

Yep, we need to do something about them evil Ruskies. They’re sure “asking” for it. As for Putin, watch that man!—he’s definitely the new Hitler. (Or is it the new Stalin? Not quite sure.)

“Iran is not going to sell out Russia. It’s not going to knife a friend in the back. That’s just not going to happen…. There’s a new world emerging and Iran is going to be part of it.” — Mike Whitney
This is an excellent article that explains clearly why the US cut a deal with Iran over the nuclear issue : to punish and bring Russia to its knees. According to Mike Whitney, this is “just not going to happen.” (LD) Read More
Declassified US government documents finally bury myth of Berezovsky hand-picking Putin and show Putin was always his own man.
A recent article by Masha Gessen for theNew York Times has revived the story of Putin having been hand-picked for the Russian Presidency by the former oligarch Boris Berezovsky.
In this article Gessen quotes Berezovsky telling her in 2008 that he proposed to Putin a fake two-party system to control Russia (see also Boris Berezovsky’s Evil Plan to Mimic the U.S. Political System, Russia Insider, 12th June 2015). Read More
Remember that “imminent” Russian invasion of Ukraine that was supposed to take place over a year ago? Well, it’s still “imminent”!
President Poroshenko has just announced that the Russians are about to undertake a “full-scale” invasion of his country and that therefore the military budget must be increased, while “traitors” who refuse to be drafted – and who persist in criticizing his government – must be dealt with harshly.
