30 October 2016. What’s Wrong With This Picture? The Bundys Get Off Scot-Free for Armed Rebellion… Natives Get Tasered for Expressing Free Speech

00-usa-wounded-knee-120916

The First Nations are defending their land again… the MSM refuses to cover their struggle. They’re too busy covering the lawless Bundys and their worthless scummer partners-in-crime. That’s why I HATE “conservatism”… it defends demented “religious” Yahoos with guns and it attacks natives defending sacred land. I’m not the only person to call that evil.

____________________________________

This is a disgrace. The Bundys and their demented allies took over public facilities on public land by force, using arms. Native American protestors unite against a pipeline that threatens traditional sacred land. The Bundys got off scot-free for their lawless and anarchic behaviour… the Mormon Church (the Bundys are Mormons… why is that no surprise?) refuses to condemn them for their criminality. In contrast, the pipeline company sics attack dogs on the protestors, has its rent-a-cops taser them, and has the real cops arrest them (the protestors are often locked into dog kennels, reputable reports say).

What’s wrong with this picture? Note well that the drooling “conservative” crowd defends the gun-nutter Know Nothings and attacks the First Nation people. I hate “conservatism” more with each passing day. I especially despise their smarmy religiosity… as they have an amoral lack of any scruple when it comes to self-aggrandisement and self-enrichment. (Orthodox people… if you wonder why I hate Whiteford and Dreher so… that’s why). The Bundys engaged in a planned armed rebellion against the state. The Natives engage in spontaneous self-defence of traditional sacred land. I see a difference here… a vast difference.

I didn’t think that I could hate “conservatism” with a greater intensity… I was wrong. The world won’t be safe until we drive a stake into the heart of this infernal and diabolical ideology. Remember… “greed is good”… “winning is the only thing”… I’ve got to find a corner to be sick in…

Kiev’s Sanctions Against Russia Backfire On Ukrainian Economy

00 assholes on a golden toilet ukraine 301015

____________________________________

The Ukrainian government fined Russian airline companies over 28 million USD (1.77 billion Roubles. 188.81 million Renminbi. 1.88 billion INR. 37.51 million CAD. 36.85 million AUD. 25.49 million Euros. 22.97 million UK Pounds) for operating flights to the Crimea. Ukrainian aviation authorities issued over 5,000 rulings on violations of the flight ban to Crimea. In particular, it opened over 1,000 fines-related cases against Aeroflot. Recently, the company announced it’d launch Sochi-Simferopol flights next year. At the same time, the agency said that Russian airline companies have not paid a single fine so far. The Crimea reunited with Russia after a referendum in March 2017. Almost 97 percent of the region’s population voted for reunification. The Ukraine, the EU, and the USA didn’t recognise the move and consider it occupied territory. After the referendum, Kiev suspended aerial, railway, and bus transport with the peninsula. In September 2015, Kiev decided to introduce sanctions against Russian airlines operating flights to Crimea. Andrei Suzdaltsev, the deputy head of the Faculty of World Economic and International Relations at the Moscow-based Higher School of Economics told us:

The Ukraine damages its own economy by acting economically against Russia. The Ukraine punishes itself severely and for the long-term. The situation is dangerous for Kiev. Currently, the country is struggling to receive money and investments. The Ukrainian economy badly needs money. However, the best indicator of the Ukrainian business climate is relations with Russia. Russia is the main market for the Ukraine. The idea was that the Ukraine would turn to the West, but use Russian money, resources, and energy supplies. Now, Kiev appears to be punishing itself with its anti-Russian economic moves. The situation over control of the Crimean skies is madness. It’s a very touchy problem… who controls the sky over the Crimea? In fact, Russia is in charge because the Crimea is part of Russia. The West unofficially admits this because no one wants to have an uncontrolled airspace, but the actual situation is madness. There’s a special agency in the Ukraine on Crimean issues. It tracks each flight to the peninsula. The Ukraine complains non-stop. Sometimes, the situation turns into a joke. Kiev imposed sanctions on companies constructing the Russian bridge to the Crimea. These sanctions have nothing to do with aerial communication.

The Ukraine is Cloud-Cuckoo Land in the flesh. There’s little food on the shelves… the power flickers on and off… there’s been no hot water for months… but the oligarchs and perfumed nationalists all have mansions, armed flunkies, and money in foreign banks. Of course, it’s unstable in the extreme… Porky had best have a good bolthole. The USA won’t pull his fat out of the fire. He’ll end either dead or as a fixture at Bound Brook or Toronto banquets of Galician diehards. I hope that Russia liberates Kiev soon… it’ll put an end to the suffering of the ordinary people. Mark it well that the Galician Uniate and “Ukrainian Orthodox” loudmouths don’t care about the ordinary people’s suffering… they have their “Ukraine”… thank God that it’s not long for this world…

“Life Was Better Under Communism”: Majority of Russians, Romanians, and Eastern Germans

00 christ the first communist. 010715

____________________________________

Firstly, let’s say that the proper phrase is “under Socialism”. During the 20th century, the USSR and the Eastern European socialist countries were in the process of socialist construction. According to Marxist-Leninist theory, “Socialism” is the first stage (phase) of Communism. Having said the above, let’s go to the core issue. The people who lived under both Socialism and Capitalism gave their answer to bourgeois unhistorical slanders. Various polls in former Socialist countries prove that the majority of people, in Russia and Eastern Europe, think that life was better before the counter-revolutions and Capitalism’s restoration. Socialism had solved their major problems… free education, free healthcare for all, social security, jobs, free vacation and holidays for everyone, etc. Restoring Capitalism brought in unprecedented barbarity in almost every sector of public life… social inequality, unemployment, privatisation of major public sectors from healthcare to education, etc.

RUSSIA

00-levada-centre-russia-poll-results-ussr-301016

In March 2016, a survey conducted by the all-Russia Public Opinion Center (VTsIOM) showed that more than half of Russians (64 percent) would vote to maintain the USSR if a referendum were held today. This figure increases from 47 percent amongst those 18-24 to 76 percent amongst respondents aged 60 and up. The poll results showed that only 20 percent of Russian citizens would vote against restoring the USSR. During the same period (March 2016), a similar survey by the Levada Centre showed:

  • More than half (51 percent) of Russians said that the collapse of the USSR was avoidable
  • More than half (56 percent) of Russians regret the collapse of the USSR (in fact, the victory of counter-revolution)
  • The majority of the participants in the survey (58 percent) said that they’d welcome the revival of the USSR and the socialist system

Polls conducted in previous years produced similar results. A survey by the Public Opinion Foundation (FOM) back in 2013 showed that 60 percent of Russians thought that life in the USSR had more positive than negative aspects. Furthermore, in the same poll, 43 percent of respondents would welcome the re-adoption of communist ideology, while 38 percent wouldn’t welcome such a situation. In reading the above, we must take into account the powerful anti-communist propaganda of the last two decades, the slanders and lies against the socialist system broadcast by the bourgeois media and political parties.

GERMANY

In June 2009, a survey conducted in Germany showed that 57 percent of eastern Germans defend the German Democratic Republic (DDR). Of those polled, 49 percent said, “The GDR had more good sides than bad sides. There were some problems, but life was good there”. Spiegel Online reported the poll, but it tried to vilify the DDR with anti-communist lies… claiming that it was proof that, according to historian Stefan Wolle, “a new form of Ostalgie has taken shape”.

ROMANIA

In a July 2010 IRES (Romanian Institute for Evaluation and Strategy) poll, 41 percent of respondents would’ve voted for Ceaușescu, had he run for President. 63 percent of survey participants said that their life was better under communism; only 23 percent claimed that their life was worse then. 68 percent declared that communism was a good idea, just one that was poorly applied. A 2014 survey by INSCOP Research revealed that 44.4 percent of respondents believed that living conditions were better under communism.

HUNGARY

According to a April 2010 report by the Pew Research Center, 72 percent of Hungarians say that most people in their country are actually worse off today economically than they were under communism. Only 8 percent say most people in Hungary are better off, and 16 percent say things are about the same.

Let’s keep it simple… Western media, academe, and corporate entities have an agenda. They only report on the minority of people who did better under a Liberal Free Market tyranny. The welfare of the mass of the working people doesn’t enter into their calculations. Just look at mendacious mercenary filth like Bill O’Reilly, Sarah Palin, and Rod Dreher… you’ll know what I’m talking about. All those who call themselves “conservative” in the Anglosphere are godless worshippers of the so-called Free Market… most have profited personally from it (those who haven’t, yet support the Beast, are goddamn fools). The worst are those who call themselves “Christian”, for they embrace an amoral ideology that contradicts everything ever taught by Our Lord Christ. G A Zyuganov said:

Christ was the first Communist.

He was right… Christ would’ve had nothing to do with William F Buckley’s yachts, Franklin Graham’s grandiose headquarters, Joel Osteen’s private jet, or Chelsea Clinton’s fab NYC digs. After all, WHO killed Our Lord Christ? It was the respectable, well-off, religious, and clergy of his day. Now, that’s a meaty reflection! How many of these loudmouth “Christians” would recrucify Christ?

THINK ON THAT…

Socialism IS good!

Peacemaker: How the Soviet Tsar Bomba Helped Prevent Nuclear War

00-russia-ussr-tsar-bomba-301016

******

____________________________________

Fifty-five years ago, the USSR detonated a 50-megaton bomb over an uninhabited island north of the Arctic Circle. The most powerful thermonuclear weapon ever built by man, aptly called the Tsar Bomba, gave the USSR nuclear parity with the USA.

The Super Bomb was a Necessity

The “thaw” in Soviet-US relations resulting from, amongst other things, Nikita Khrushchyov’s visit to the USA in autumn 1959 ended on 1 May 1960, when the Soviets shot down a US U-2 spy plane flown by CIA pilot Francis Gary Powers in their airspace as it performed photographic aerial reconnaissance of the Baikonur cosmodrome and a number of Soviet military and nuclear facilities. Powers parachuted safely, the Soviets captured him, and he admitted the military nature of his mission. As a result, Khrushchyov cancelled the scheduled opening of an east-west summit in Paris. The incident prompted a marked deterioration of US-Soviet relations, especially after US-backed Cuban emigrants bungled an attempt to invade Cuba in April 1961. The Moscow-proposed moratorium on nuclear tests by the USSR, the USA, and the UK, in effect since 1958, left the USSR lagging far behind the USA in the size of its nuclear arsenal. By 1960, the Americans used the moratorium to bring the number of their nuclear and thermonuclear warheads to 18,600 from 7,500 in 1958. In July 1961, Khrushchyov decided that he had enough of the moratorium and decided to start work on super-powerful thermonuclear weapons to restore nuclear parity with the USA. He also announced the need to build a 100-megaton thermonuclear bomb as a means of forcing the Americans to wake up to reality.

The Tsar Bomba

A four-man development team of nuclear physicists… Viktor Adamsky, Yuri Babaev, Yuri Smirnov, and Yuri Trutnev… had the responsibility to design and build a three-stage thermonuclear device in just 15 weeks. Officially designated the AN602 thermonuclear bomb, the Tsar Bomba used the common three-stage Teller-Ulam design. The primary fission reaction compressed a secondary mixed fission/fusion fuel layer, which in turn compressed a large tertiary thermonuclear payload, essentially stringing a pair of hydrogen fission reactions together to generate enough energy to activate fusion in a uranium payload.

Record-Breaking Blast

At 09.00 on 30 October 1961, a specially modified Tu-95 strategic bomber took off; it carried the Tsar Bomba and a Tu-16A flying laboratory accompanied it. They headed for a testing range on the Novaya Zemlya archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. At 27 tonnes, the Tsar Bomba weighed nearly as much as the Tu-95 that carried it; it was so big that groundcrew had to cut off the bomb-bay doors to fit it in. At 11.30, the crew released the device from 10,500 metres, using a parachute to retard its fall so that the bomber and its companion craft had sufficient time… 188 seconds… to leave the area. The bomb went off at an altitude of 4,200 metres. The calculated power of the unprecedented explosion was 51.5 megatons. In reality, its power was between 57 and 58.6 megatons. The fireball from the explosion was 4.6 kilometres across; it was visible 1,000 kilometres away, despite dense clouds. The mushroom cloud rose up to almost 70 kilometres and had a diameter of 95 kilometres. For about an hour after the explosion, people observed radio signal distortions hundreds of kilometres from the epicentre due to ionisation of the atmosphere. The shockwave circled the planet three times. On Dikson Island, some 800 kilometres from the range, the shockwave shattered windows, bringing the sound of cannonade with it.

Aftermath

Even though the Tsar Bomba wasn’t an active service weapon, its creation confirmed the USSR’s ability to have as many megatons of nuclear might as it desired. With this realisation in mind, the USA stopped their nuclear buildup. On 5 August 1963, the USSR, the USA, and the UK signed a treaty banning nuclear tests in the atmosphere, outer space, and underwater. Thus, the test of the Tsar Bomba played a crucial role in achieving nuclear parity between the USSR and the USA. This prevented nuclear war.
