Russia Has Western Enemies, Not Partners

00 Lands Added to Russia on the Territory of the Former Ukrainian SSR. 21.08.14

______________________________

The US House of Representatives joined Hillary Clinton, Obama, the neoconservatives, Washington’s vassals, and the American and European presstitutes in demonising Russia and President Putin. The House resolution against Russia is a packet of lies, but that didn’t stop the resolution from passing by a vote of 411 for it and 10 against it. The entire world should take note that the American people are capable of electing only ten intelligent representatives. Ten people out of 435 is 2 percent. Yet, Washington declares itself “exceptional” and “indispensable”, empowered to exercise hegemony over the world!

No one should be surprised to see Washington, its presstitutes and European vassal states using the same propagandistic lies against Russia and Putin as were used against Iraq and Saddam Hussein, Libya and Gaddafi, Syria and Assad, Afghanistan and the Taliban, and Iran. Washington is fearful of the rise of Russia and China, of the leadership demonstrated by V V Putin, of the formation of new organisations independent of Washington, such as the BRICS. When its “six week, 70 billion USD war”, which turned out to be, so far, a multi-trillion dollar 13-year losing operation, side-tracked the George W Bush régime, Putin kicked out some of the American agents who were contaminating Russian sovereignty and rebuilt the country.

When Putin blocked the planned American invasions of Syria and Iran, Washington decided that it had to do something about Putin and Russia. Washington spent 5 billion dollars buying Ukrainian politicians and funding fifth column NGOs. With Putin distracted with the Olympics, Washington struck, overthrew the elected Ukrainian government, and installed its puppets. The puppets set about antagonising the Russian population in the Ukraine. These provinces were formerly Russian, but Soviet leaders attached them to the Ukraine when Russia and the Ukraine were the same country. Naturally, Russians threatened with death and the banning of their language didn’t want to be victims of Washington’s puppet government in Kiev. Crimea voted to reunite with Russia from whence it came, and so did the eastern and southern provinces. Washington and its vassals and presstitutes lied, describing these acts of self-determination as Russian invasion and annexation. They falsely accused Russia of having troops occupying the breakaway (sic) provinces.

The purpose of Washington’s false accusations is to destabilise Russia and the country’s government. Washington has many avenues by which to destabilise Russia. Washington has American-funded NGOs, foreign-owned Russian media, and the House Resolution calls for Washington to expand propaganda broadcasting into Russia in the Russian language. Washington cultivated oligarchs, business interests, and Russian politicians who see their economic and political interests aligned with the West. There are deluded Russian youths who think freedom resides in the West, and others represented by such as Pussy Riot who prefer the West’s amorality or immorality to the local Russian government-supported Christian culture.

If Washington fails to destabilise Russia or assassinate Putin, frustration could result in it showing more reckless behaviour, which could lead to military conflict. The House Resolution calls on Obama to arm the Ukraine with American weapons so that the Ukraine can conquer the separatist (sic) provinces and take back the Crimea. There are constant calls from NATO itself for more military forces on Russia’s borders, and NATO conducts war games near Russia’s borders. Washington wants to include former Russian provinces like Georgia and Ukraine in NATO, something that Russia can’t accept. Washington is placing the world on the path to Armageddon, as Professor Michel Chossudovsky makes clear in Towards a World War III Scenario (Global Research, 2012).

The Russian government downplays the dangers and continues to speak of “our Western partners”, with whom the Russian government hopes to work things out. The Russian government and the Russian people… indeed, all the peoples of the earth… should understand that Russia has no partners in the West. Russia only has enemies. Washington makes it completely clear that Russia can be part of the West only as a vassal state and not as a sovereign country with its own interests and an independent policy. Washington’s demand for hegemony doesn’t permit the existence of other sovereign countries sufficiently strong to resist Washington’s will. As the ideology of hegemony has a powerful hold on Washington and is institutionalised in the neoconservative control of critical government offices and media, war is the almost certain outcome.

Washington’s puppet rulers of Europe are the enablers of the neoconservative warmongers. In all of Europe, no government is independent of Washington. Pawns like Merkel, Cameron, and Hollande sell out human life. Russian government officials, such as Putin and Lavrov, address the facts, but to Washington and its European vassals, facts aren’t important. What’s important is to destabilise Russia. One can’t address the conflict that Washington brings to Russia on a factual basis. Washington knew that Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction and no al-Qaeda connections. Washington knew that Assad didn’t use chemical weapons. Washington knew that it was setting up Gaddafi with lies. Washington knows that Iran has no nuclear weapons. What was important to Washington wasn’t the truth, but the overthrow of these governments. Whilst the Olympics preoccupied the Russian government, Washington struck in the Ukraine, installing a puppet government. It’s likely that the only solution that can make the festering problem of the Ukraine go away is the reincorporation of the Ukraine in Russia.

Usually, arrogance and hubris result in overreach, and overreach could break up Washington’s empire. However, Washington doesn’t think so. Just as Washington put its NGOs into the streets of Kiev in what it calls the Maiden protests, Washington put its NGOs in the streets of Hong Kong, hoping that the protests or riots would spread to other Chinese cities. Russia and China are far too open to the West than is good for them. Tsar Nikolai didn’t expect his government to be overthrown, but Kerensky did overthrow Nicholas’ government in the February Revolution… only to be overthrown by Lenin in the October Revolution. The Chinese don’t expect to be overthrown, but neither did V F Yanukovich. Political life is full of ambitious persons and agendas. Putin faces these ambitions in Russia. Washington knows that it can’t turn Russia into a vassal state as long as Putin is in office. Therefore, the demonisation of Putin and plots against him will continue.

One should heed Mr Robert’s books, The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism and Economic Dissolution of the West and How America Was Lost. You’ll know why I’m such a bitter foe of Victor Potapov, Alexander Webster, Terry Mattingly, Freddie M-G, Rod Dreher, John Whiteford, Jonas Paffhausen, and Patrick Reardon. Those named want to ally the Church with the godless forces of American neoconservatism… a force that wants to rip apart Holy Rus and tear it asunder as it’s torn asunder the Ukraine, Georgia, the Baltic States, Yugoslavia, and Iraq.

It’s one thing for godless Evangelicals to ally themselves with the neocons… their “faith” is nothing more than a religious apologia for American juvenile rebellion and social anarchy. It’s quite another for Orthodox people to do so… we have a communitarian pro-state ethos entirely at odds with the Republican Party, laissez-faire crapitalism, and Evangelical Feel-Good pabulum (“Giving your heart to Jesus”… what asinine unscriptural rot!).

We should face down those of our own who want to bring in alien and heterodox elements into our ancient faith. We can’t afford them or their toddler social, political, and religious ideologies. It’s “put up or shut up” time… but shall we do it though?

29 October 2014. Christian Iraq is No More… Do You Want to Vote for the Republicans Who Brought That On?

00 christ or rush. 29.10.14

______________________________

The ancient Christian communities of Iraq are no more… that’s the direct result of Bush’s and Cheney’s warmongering in 2003. Today, the GOP rattles its rusty sabre yet again… if its earlier aggression led directly to the present predicament of Iraqi Christians, one shudders to think what the results of their latest warmongering would be. If you’re an Orthodox Christian and you vote for Republicans, you thrust a knife full-force into the backs of your co-religionists in the Middle East and in the Ukraine. There’s no other way of putting it. You spit on the Lord Christ through the blasphemous Republican assault on the Orthodox peoples of the Middle East and the Ukraine. Why? Why are you helping those who hate our Faith, who hate our People, and who hate our Civilisation? They want to rape our ancestral homelands in the Middle East and Eastern Europe for the sake of Filthy Lucre. They want to replace our ancient Belief and Worldview with their Me First-Winner Take All cacodoxy.

You DO have a choice… Christ or Rush Limbaugh… the GOP or the Holy Church… Almighty God or the Almighty Dollar. Do choose carefully… the fate of your immortal soul IS at stake.

19 October 2014. Politics Through a Cartoonist’s Eyes…

00 Don't Wake Up the Russian Bear. 19.10.14

The Bear doesn’t fancy being woken up from his hibernation…

******

00 Bob Englehart. Sharia Laws. 19.10.14

The US forces are making Afghanistan safe for Islamic law of the most retrograde variety (they do NOT represent mainstream Islam)… the American-backed junta there is as strident as ISIS is! What a luvverly thing “democracy” is, wot? Afghanistan was freer in 1965 and under the DRA, too… fancy that…

******

00 Rob Rogers. GOP Guide to Leadership. 19.10.14

Reagan and G W Bush used dictatorial ukases (“executive orders”) more often than B H Obama has… Obama’s the “threat to democracy!” I’ll check into Bedlam with Mr Scrooge…

******

00 Rob Rogers. NATO. He's Been Stuck Like That AInce the End of the Cold War. 19.10.14

NATO is as much of actual use as buggy whips in an age of automobiles. Yet, the USA wastes billions upon it for no good purpose… the GOP demands that we do so… Obama goes along, for if he doesn’t, the GOP in the Senate would filibuster him to death.

It’s coming near Election Day… vote! Then, at least, you’ve got bitchin’ rights until the next time. Step up or shut up…

7 October 2014. Here’s Another Reason to Vote AGAINST the Republicants This November

00 Monthly change in US employment. 07.10.14

******

00 Political Cartoon. 08.12. Deficit. FDR quote

______________________________

The Great Depression of 2008 (for that is what it is) was a direct result of Republican policies. The Bushies went to war… they CUT taxes on the wealthy and corporations… the only groups that profited from the Bushie drive for global hegemonism. Wars are inordinately expensive, and seven years of war in DISTANT foreign parts crashed the economy (the more distant the theatre of operations, the more expensive it is to ship supplies to the front… QED). You’ll note that the economy improved after Obama took over. Mostly, he curbed the wars… but that may downturn with the latest military adventurism. However, that may only be a pre-election ploy… Obama doesn’t want to appear “weak”, so, he’s doing goofy things like propping up the fascist junta in Kiev and making grand noises about Iraq. A friend of mine in the District said that it may go away after the election (“That’s why Putin isn’t concerned. He knows that Obama needs to do things before the election to ensure that the Republicans don’t win”). In short, Obama may retrench military threats after the political threat from the GOP is over. After all, he did so in Syria last year, and the world is better off for it.

Don’t vote Republican. If you want to know what GOP policies would do to this country, look at the Ukraine. The oligarchs sucked the country dry and the only reason that it lingered on for 23 years was Russian subsidies… no lie… the Svoboda pigs postured because of cheap Russian gas and Russian involvement in the economy. The Republicans want the same here… a feral, heartless, and greedy society… with them saying, “That’s the way the world is… there’s nothing that anyone can do about it”. Of course not… like Bill Kristol, Rod Dreher, Ann Coulter, and Victor Potapov, they’re above the median in income… “To hell with you, if you were any good, you’d be as ruthless, and be as successful”.

Vote against EVIL… vote AGAINST Republicans. They crashed the economy once to enrich their plutocrat bosses… do you want to let them do it again?
