12 November 2017. Things Have Gotten WORSE, not Better, In Two Years

________________________

I wrote this in March 2015:

I now hate everything that the Washington establishment stands for. Their mendacity and greed know no bounds. Of the GOP and the Democrats, at least the Republicans are openly evil… the establishment Democrats are as bad, but they have a smarmy exterior. That’s why many people don’t want either Clinton or an establishment GOPer to run. America stands at a crossroads. It’s goading a country that can strike back. As D K Kiselyov put it, “Russia can turn the American heartland into a smouldering radioactive cinder”. If Russia felt that its existence was at stake, it WOULD use nukes. The fecklessness of the Anglo Americans is breathtaking in its ignorance and stupidity. THEY BELIEVE THEIR OWN LIES. They really believe that they’re the best in the world and chosen of God. God help us all… not only are the times evil, but we must stop the malevolent greedster Anti-Christian ideology of the Anglo establishment. If you want to see the Apocalypse embodied… go to any American country club… I need say no more.

I need only say that since then things have gotten worse and not better. May the good God preserve us.

Russian Journo D K Kiselyov on the USA… I Need Add Nothing

________________________

Isn’t this how the USA acts all over the world though? They destroy countries because civil wars bring sorrow and poverty to entire nations. Just like that. They seem to not even notice the consequences of their actions. They blame others for everything and then gloat about being sinless. With this simple carefree mentality, they can allow themselves everything. America fines European banks and companies, to punish them for defying America. They impose unilateral sanctions in Europe against those who want to buy cheaper Russian gas, instead of more-expensive American gas. They tap phones and read emails of billions of people on the planet, including the leaders of US-allied countries. They arrest foreign citizens all over the world and throw them in secret jails outside of the USA. Of course, outside of the USA… so that they can torture them, without fear of breaking any of their own laws.

They plan and execute coup d’états and colour revolutions. They usually time them with the elections in the victim country. They de facto continue to militarily occupy Germany and Japan. The USA has a huge number of military bases in these countries. A base, by the way, is a foreign military force. It directly limits the sovereignty and the ability of the occupied country to act in their own national interests. They start and execute military operations without sanctions from the UN. They falsely justify their own actions and act on false pretences. For a cover, they gather fake coalitions. Moreover, all of this is done with that simple American air of naïveté. That same mindset allows them to ally with what’s left of Islamic State in Deir-ez-Zor. With the same simple-mindedness, Trump threatened to destroy an entire country at the UN General Assembly. The Americans have already announced that they’re pulling out of the nuclear agreement with Iran without any justifiable reasons, in spite of everything and everyone. Just like that.

When Donald Trump became President, he received the people’s mandate to build a rational relationship with Russia and to implement a more rational policy in the world. He wasn’t supposed to overthrow foreign governments. Right now, Trump acts in direct opposition to his voters’ expectations. Is there, at least, one problem in the world which the USA has helped solve this year? No. What’s worse, he made North Korea even more dangerous and non-complying. South Korea and Japan are in clear danger now. He’s deployed more troops to Afghanistan, but we don’t know what he’s trying to accomplish there either. In Syria, the USA lost its strategic goals and started to directly oppose Russia and the anti-terrorist forces. He’s on bad terms with Turkey, he’s scared off Europe, and nothing good is happening in South America, either. Tensions between the USA and China are growing. Relations with Russia are at an all-time low. It’s bad enough that the US took over Russian diplomatic residencies, but they’re also tearing through them like nobody’s business. How else would one label the actions of those agents in our Consulate in San Francisco? Does it mean that Russia must respond in a mutual manner? Perhaps, as simple-mindedly as the USA does?

If Russia did, it’d ruin the very concept of diplomacy. What’d be next? Or, does Washington prefer not to think about that? Or, do they? The less diplomacy there is, the less politeness and nice words, the higher the demand for US weapons. That’s much better. It’s not as if diplomacy is very lucrative. It’s about airing concerns, which leads to… unneeded restrictions. Taking the high road is difficult, and the low road is always there. It’s coarser, but it does have elements of cheap theatricality. Take for example what Trump did when he went to Puerto Rico after the hurricane. For appearance’s sake, he brought his wife along. She wasn’t wearing her usual high heels, but she specially bought yellow Timberlands. He made the local Americans happy, personally throwing paper towels into the crowd. It looked like one big ridiculous show. It all took place on a day of nationwide mourning in honour of the mass shooting in Las Vegas.

Kiselyov Boots VOA and Radio Liberty from the Rodina… Good Riddance to BAD Rubbish!

00 Radio Radonezh

This is the logo of Radio Radonezh, a Church-run media outlet that DOES have things of interest to offer its listeners… Radio Radonezh and Radio Liberty… one of these things is NOT like the other!

______________________________

On Wednesday, Dmitri Kiselyov, the head of the Rossiya Segodnya media group, said that the Voice of America (VOA) was a radio spammer with nothing of interest to offer its audiences. Kiselyov explained that the authorities terminated VOA’s rebroadcasting rights in Russia due to its contract for operation in the Russian Federation expiring. He said, in a 21 March letter to the US Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), which coördinates broadcasting of the two outlets, “It doesn’t have anything to do with the freedom of speech because Voice of America and Radio Liberty have nothing original to say. They sound like they broadcast from another world, at least from a world that doesn’t exist anymore. I regard these radio stations as mere spam on our frequencies. They’re boring and lacking in self-criticism. We aren’t going to coöperate anymore. I don’t feel compelled to help these radio spammers air their shows in Russia”. Kiselyov sent the letter in response to BBG’s inquiry about prolonging the contract for broadcasting VOA. BBG chairman Jeff Shell decried Kiselyov’s letter as an attack on the freedom of speech. VOA is the official external broadcast institution of the US federal government. In 1947, VOA started broadcasting to Soviet citizens in Russian under the pretext of countering the Soviet point of view on American policies {BBG/VOA/RL is widely known as a Langley front organisation: editor}.

Editor:

Now, that the motherland has done this, it’s time for the Church to put Potapov to the question, “Do want to work for Radio Liberty, or, do you want to work for us?” Either he should retract publicly all his earlier public statements about the Rodina and its history, or, he should leave the Church’s service as a pastor in the District. It’s quite that simple. Look, if he wants to support greedster Republican warmongers, hey, let him… but not as a representative of the Church. This is shameful… we shouldn’t have an official of the Church hobnobbing with such Individualist Ayn Rand filth as the Washington Times or the American Enterprise Institute. They knife the motherland in the back… ergo, our clergy should stay away from them and from all those who work for or with them. Let him choose… and give him the boot if he refuses to leave his Russophobic Free Market pals. It’s only fair…

Putin Spokesman Peshkov Sez Russian Government Needs More Media Spotlight

01 woman reading newspaper

______________________________

On Thursday, President Vladimir Putin‘s spokesman Dmitri Peskov commented on the dissolution of the major state-owned news agency RIA-Novosti announced last week, “Every state uses the news media. It’s everywhere. Russia should use it as well. It’d be propaganda in the best sense of the term”. Last week, Putin signed a decree merging RIA-Novosti and Voice of Russia to create a new media conglomerate called Rossiya Segodnya (Russia Today). Many saw the move as the latest development in a gradual tightening of state control over the Russian news media, where the state already has a strong presence. The Kremlin appointed controversial television presenter Dmitri Kiselyov, known for his outspoken opinions on gay rights and the current street protests in the Ukraine, to head Rossiya Segodnya.
