15 November 2017. The Two Greatest Russian Rulers of the Past Century… Stalin and Putin

******

________________________

In ranking him in comparison to his predecessors of the 20th-century, Stalin is Putin’s only peer in the realm of political achievements. However, they used radically different methods.

D K Kiselyov

Head of Rossiya Segodnya

Let’s keep it simple. In the past century, only two Russian rulers were “great”… I V Stalin and V V Putin. This isn’t a comment on their morals or goodness as men… it’s a comment on their effectiveness as rulers. Make no mistake, V V Putin has no peers amongst contemporary leaders (except for Paramount Leader Xi of China)… the others are pygmies… moral midgets and not statesmen in any way. G W Bush, Obama, and Trump (and Madame Hillary too) are farcical figures in comparison.

I dislike the American rightwing “Putin fanboys”… they don’t like the real V V Putin… they’ve made a false idol of the man (especially, Anglo rightwing Orthodox converts). However, that doesn’t negate Vladimir Vladimirovich’s stature as a leader nor does it cancel his place in history (which is secure).

G W Bush was a spoilt rich kid, Obama was an obedient Step n’ Fetchit for the oligarchs, and Trump is nothing but a salesman… a shyster trickster with nothing but a fancy sales-patter and a glitzy exterior (hiding a monstrous vacuity). Madame Hillary is the worst one of the lot, though… she’s a greedy and self-absorbed self-aggrandiser of the worst possible sort. Nothing is illicit for her if it advances her personal position or enriches her. The first three are merely morally corrupt and bad men. Hillary is malevolent and utterly foul (what does that tell you about the loud n’ nasty Hillarybot trolls that infest the net?). As bad as Trump is, he’s not the amoral votary of evil that Hillary is.

Thank God for VVP… he’s keeping the world on an even keel…

Trump Is Not George W Bush

____________________________________

People who think everything is great and who think that those with grievances should just “move to some other country” didn’t elect Trump. Rather, they elected him due to his condemnations of the financial élite and promises of government action to fix up the economy. The major opponents of Trump don’t oppose him for being a “warmonger”, but because he’s allegedly friendly to Russia and not committed to “humanitarian intervention”.

Bush’s politics were a middle-class endorsement of the Establishment against those “troublemakers” and “bleeding hearts” who wanted change. Trump took office in a wave of isolationist and populist sentiments, which other forces didn’t capture. I remember the Bush years very clearly, and I’ve interacted with many Trump supporters. The demographic may be similar, but the worldview of Middle America drastically changed in the last eight years. Criticise Trump all you want, but projecting Michael Moore rhetoric from 2002-07 onto the current moment is just plain silly.

12 November 2016. The End of the Bush/Clinton Duopoly

bush-cartoon2

____________________________________

Trump won because “more of the same” wouldn’t wash in Peoria. Full stop. The Clintons are dead politically. Chelsea Clinton will be a glitzy party animal in the usual NY Metro circles, nothing more. She might win a safe Dem congressional seat… that’s all. On the other hand, the Bushes have the financial and social creds to soldier on (they’re not parvenus like the Clintons… the Real Rich locked them out of Tarrytown). However, watch the Bushes “trim their sails”… they didn’t survive backing Hitler in the 30s for nothing. They’re survivors… like the Gardiners (a prominent NY family).

Nevertheless, the Bush/Clinton domination of American politics since 1988 is over. Obama was simply Hilly’s frontman… his foreign policy and domestic policy was hers, right down to the last jot n’ tittle. He did nothing to aid ordinary people in his administration… but he did wage war at Hilly’s instigation. Don’t forget that Vickie Nuland was Hilly’s protégé, and Obama obediently rolled over and played dead for every aggression that the Clintons and Bushes wanted. The American people voted out these two Mafia families. The Bushes have more savoir faire, but that’s because they’re Old Money. The Clintons are more open in their powerlust (do look at their associates such as Carville… I need say no more). Both Bushes and Clintons “triangulated”… both spat on their parties’ bases. Well… the American people spoke this year.

“No more Clintons”… “No more Bushes”… the Clintons will become tabloid nonentities (but they’ll always be in the news like the equally powerless Kardashians) and the Bushes will return to being one of the Old Money Set (trust me, they’re Social Register, and that’ll NEVER change). However, both are out of real politics. The people have seen through them…

16 June 2016. Friends Don’t Let Friends Vote for Neoliberals… Both “Conservative” and “Liberal”

00 I did not cause the national debt. 160616

______________________________

Don’t vote for Trump the Chump or Chilly Hilly… both are neoliberal pro-Corporatist scummers. If he runs, vote for Bernie… if not, vote for Jill Stein. Don’t vote for either side of the duopoly. BOTH ARE EQUALLY EVIL. The presidencies of George W Bush and Bill Clinton proved that. There wasn’t a tuppence worth of difference between Bush and Clinton. Do reflect on this… Chilly Hilly is Bill’s wife… Bill is using her to subvert the Constitution. Do ponder that…
