Trump’s Election… A Different View

Anti-Trump march in Austin TX

____________________________________

The following explains very well why Trump’s election was better for us than Chilly Hilly’s would’ve been. You see, she’s just as greedy, twice as stupid, three times as vindictive, but in a prettier package. Hilly would’ve had us in a war already and all the “Liberals” would be drooling their support. Now, we have no illusions. People see that cronyism, greed, corruption, perpetual warfare (and the Military Industrial Complex), and corporate mendacity are the real enemies that we face. Yes… many still drink the Chilly Hilly Kool-Aid. However, Trump’s election woke many people up. If the Dems want to win in 2020, they’d best nominate someone like Tulsi Gabbard or they’re going to go down for the count. To nominate Hilly or one of her greedster colleagues would be a disaster… but shall “Liberals” wake up and reclaim the New Deal legacy? That’s still undecided… choose wisely, for the fate of the nation IS at stake.

The Clintons made the Democratic Party into Republicans Lite. It’s time to throw them (and their hangers-on) out and go Left again. If not, the Dems die. That be the reality, kids…

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it looks like Trump is actually making America great again. Just look at the progress made since the election:

  1. Unprecedented levels of ongoing civic engagement.
  2. Millions of Americans now know who their state and federal representatives are without having to Google.
  3. Millions of Americans are exercising more. They’re holding signs and marching every week.
  4. Alec Baldwin is great again. Everyone’s forgotten he’s kind of a jerk.
  5. The Postal Service is enjoying the influx cash due to stamps purchased by millions of people for letter and postcard campaigns.
  6. Likewise, the pharmaceutical industry is enjoying record growth in sales of antidepressants.
  7. Millions of Americans now know how to call their elected officials and know exactly what to say to be effective.
  8. Footage of town hall meetings is now entertaining.
  9. Tens of millions of people are now correctly spelling words like emoluments, narcissist, fascist, misogynist, holocaust, and cognitive dissonance.
  10. Everyone knows more about the rise of Hitler than last year.
  11. Everyone knows more about legislation, the branches of power, and how checks and balances work.
  12. Marginalised groups are experiencing a surge in white allies.
  13. White people in record numbers just learned that racism isn’t dead.
  14. White people in record numbers also finally understand that Obamacare IS the Affordable Care Act.
  15. Stephen Colbert’s Late Night finally gained the elusive #1 spot in late night talk shows, and Seth Meyers is finding his footing as today’s Jon Stewart.
  16. “Mike Pence” donated millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood since 9 November.
  17. Melissa FREAKING McCarthy.
  18. Travel ban protesters put 24 million USD (1.4 billion Roubles. 165.08 million Renminbi. 1.61 billion INR. 31.46 million CAD. 31.3 million AUD. 22.6 million Euros. 19.25 million UK Pounds) into ACLU coffers in just 48 hours, enabling them to hire 200 more attorneys. Lawyers are now heroes.
  19. As people seek veracity in their news sources, respected news outlets are happily reporting a substantial increase in subscriptions, a boon to a struggling industry vital to our democracy.
  20. Livestreaming court cases and congressional sessions are now as popular as the Kardashians.
  21. Massive cleanup of Facebook friend lists.
  22. People are reading classic literature again. Sales of George Orwell’s 1984 increased 10,000 percent after the inauguration. (Yes, that’s true… 10,000 percent. 9th grade Lit teachers all over the country are now rock stars.)
  23. More than ever before, Americans are aware that education is important. Like, super important.
  24. Now, more than any time in history, everyone believes that anyone can be President. Seriously, anyone.

18 February 2017. Milunka Savić… Serbia’s Warrior Heroine

00-serbia-milunka-savic-160217

____________________________________               

The crackbrained “conservatives” are fond of telling us that women are unsuitable to face the rigours of combat. I’d submit that the story of Milunka Savić debunks that rightwing fable. She fought in the Balkan Wars and the First World War, and won many decorations, including foreign ones, for her bravery. Yes… this may only apply to only some women… but that cohort should have the right to fight (indeed, there are many women fighting in the patriot forces in the Donbass against the Uniate fascist aggressors today).

Oppose all lunatic rightwingers (especially, “libertarians” and so-called “paleocons”) wherever you may find them. They’re ravening enemies of decency, humanity, and true spirituality. No good can come of any “dialogue” with such sorts. They’ve chosen to follow a monstrous ideology (Libertarianism in particular and “conservatism” in general put too much trust in the basic goodness and perfectibility of mankind). Trust me, you and I can’t change that. We can only wait and hope for the best.

The Donbass People’s Fortress Honours the Remembrance of Its Lost Commanders… What Panic?

00-dnr-russia-motorola-funeral-120217

The funeral procession for A S Pavlov (“Motorola”) in Donetsk… can you believe that Langley and its Galician Uniate nationalist stooges are passing the lie that Russia killed him? If you needed proof that the Anglos and their Uniate/schismo running dogs are living in Cloud-Cuckoo Land, that fills the bill. Delenda est “Anglo hegemony”…

******

_____________________________________

Just in the past few months, the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR) and its armed forces lost two remarkable battalion commanders and national heroes, “Givi” (M S Tolstykh) and “Motorola”, both assassinated far behind the Donbass frontline. Likewise, only about a week ago, the Lugansk People’s Republic (LNR) just witnessed the same kind of terakt*, when the famous Colonel Oleg Anashenko perished when a bomb ripped his car apart. All of these brutal killings were due to “legal” state terrorism, carried out by the Ukrainian special services against the Donbass people. Yes, all the tears that people shed in the Donbass because of our latest losses could make a heavy rainfall.

  • Terakt: Russian acronym for “terrorist action”

In both the DNR and LNR, terrorism alerts were at the highest level as they mourned their great heroes. The latest wave of terror attacks follow a horrific week, Ukrainian forces struck in the early hours of 29 January, which led to a veritable terror shelling of Donbass civilians for several days, after which our forces repelled Ukrainian infantry attacks. The junta forces used heavy artillery, mortars, Grad MRLs, and even heavy Uragan MRLs directly against civilian districts in Donetsk. The OSCE failed totally to report the key reasons for the escalation and after keeping its mouth totally shut during the first days, the western media started an information campaign against the DNR and LNR People’s Forces. Yet again, the pro-Ukrainian western propaganda machine made the victims into the aggressors, and the western media whitewashed Ukrainian attacks and war crimes. Frankly speaking, AP-Reuters-et al failed to publish anything that’d be even close to the truth, and by hiding the first crucial 36 hours of extreme Ukrainian provocations, the truth was again the first victim of an information war waged against Russia and (especially) the Donbass people.

FACT: RUSSIA ISN’T A PARTY TO THE DONBASS WAR

In the aftermath, we saw how NATO blatantly accused Russia for causing the latest escalation between the Ukraine and the Donbass People’s Republics. The Ukrainian prime minister, a real war criminal, stood next to the deputy head of NATO in Brussels, trying to convince, without showing any evidence, an international audience “that the Ukraine and the Kiev régime is a victim of Russian aggression”. What crap! Certainly, you should ask, “What Russians, how and where?” Still, the undeniable fact is that there aren’t Russian troops in the DNR and LNR, although this is difficult for westerners to believe. However, I learned here in Donetsk (and the administration well understands) that the Kremlin only has limited political influence over the decision-making processes in the independent, democratic, and powerful new People’s Republics. Always, when any westerner mentions Russia and Donbass, you should keep in mind that the Minsk Agreements and signed documents between the Ukraine and the DNR/LNR don’t even mention Russia. Why is that so? It’s because Russia has the same status as Germany and France as conflict mediators… nothing more, and nothing less. Behind the geopolitical brouhaha, everyone knows that it’s a fact that Russia isn’t a party to the war in the Donbass. I hope that you won’t fall like sheep poisoned with war propaganda.

PANIC HERE IN DONETSK AND LUGANSK?

Today, the Ukraine masses troops and heavy weapon systems along the frontline. Attack preparations and daily use of these weapons are against the Minsk Agreements, but the blind, useless, and shameful OSCE Monitoring Mission keeps its mouth shut, always looking the other way, it de facto serves only the interests of the West and its puppet régime in the Ukraine. Yes, we know the Ukraine will attack again soon, and they’ll terrorise us repeatedly, without mercy, and we can only expect another western-backed storm of fire to pound civilian neighbourhoods of Fortress Donbass. Here, in Donetsk, no one is safe… we’ve learned that very well. You could easily think that after two nasty weeks of Ukrainian terror, while we sit and wait for the next great escalation of the conflict to begin again, that the DNR and LNR would certainly be panicking. From what I see, it’d be only logical to expect such a thing! Damn, yes, we’re worried here, mostly because all these innocent civilians and children face terrible situations because of state terrorism, but as yesterday’s funeral of commander “Givi” again showed to us, at the same time, we’re more confident and determined in our common stance against the Ukrainian terror in a true united people’s resistance. Yesterday, on Friday, even in such cold weather and with the risk of another possible terror attack by Ukrainian forces on the crowd, the DNR showed again how strongly united the people are with our heroes-in-arms. After an intensive Ukrainian terror bombardment in the DNR, after the assassination of commander “Givi”, after the highest defence and terror alerts from the DNR’s top leadership and state media, tens of thousands of regular citizens came forward to show respect for our fallen battalion commander. The people are the source of the DNR People’s Forces, they praise them, and “We’re all as one”.

FORTRESS DONBASS: THE WEST SHOULD TAKE A LESSON

The image of Motorola’s funeral shows something that everyone should learn about the Donbass People’s Republics, especially, the Ukraine, the EU, and NATO-countries, which still advocate the use of military force against the Donbass people. I need to ask, how on Earth could any person with some sense in their head even think that anyone can beat the united Russian people in the former Ukraine? Yes, we should be concerned and look for a path to the peaceful political settlement of this terrible conflict in Europe, as all civilised people should, but in fact, no matter what kind of state terrorism and military offensive the western-backed Ukrainian forces, which stand today at the gates of Fortress Donbass, wage against us, there isn’t any fear in Donetsk. “Donbass Holds!” Moreover, we don’t need Russia to maintain the strength of the Donbass People’s Forces. Now, I want to tell you something that I learned here in Donetsk over the past two years. It’s about the thousands of coal miners who are the true core and muscle of the DNR/LNR People’s Forces. These guys are defending their homes. Yes, the miners really are tough guys, they can take any shit, and they’re always ready to give needed lessons to their enemies. Keep in mind that the Donbass population has a lot of these tough guys, hardened by extreme working conditions, working one kilometre underground… they’re the heart of the Donbass.

FACT: THE RUSSIAN ARMY ISN’T NEEDED IN THE DONBASS

When the western-backed Ukrainian régime collapses, their own destructive orders to attack will crush the Nazi forces in the “Ukrainian National Guard”. Then, great internal problems [in the Ukraine] would follow. If the DNR/LNR forces counterattack with their mechanised brigades, the Donbass guys and volunteers would start a long march to the West. Remember that the Donbass People’s Forces don’t really need Russia (or the Russian forces) to execute major manoeuvres against the already-failed Ukrainian state and its army. Of course, if there is a DNR/LNR counterattack, the pro-Ukrainian propaganda machine of the NATO, the EU, and the USA will again scream loudly, “Russia’s attacking!” However, just keep calm, and follow the news sources from Donetsk and Lugansk. It’d be payback time for the thousands of trained, motivated, and armed Donbass miners, who today patiently wait for diplomatic solutions. The truth has been the first victim of the war in the Donbass, but as the people will prevail in the end, the truth will prevail with overwhelming strength as well. The Donbass will certainly hold out, but it’s also every day more ready to expand, to liberate the western-occupied regions of the historic Russian land, and that means all of Novorossiya.

In the shared memory of our lost heroes, Givi, Motorola, Oleg Anaschenko, and so many others, the people’s fortress in the Donbass only gets stronger!

10 February 2017. ENGLISH SUBTITLES Peoples Artist of Russia S V Bezrukov Recites Poetry of K M Simonov… Russia’s Spirit Incarnate

00-glory-to-the-soldier-liberator

“Glory to the Soldier-Liberator!” When (not if) Russia intervenes to put an end to the notional and evil Uniate junta in the Ukraine, this is how most “Ukrainians” will welcome them… as liberators from a feral and criminal oligarch cabal. America had best step aside…

******

____________________________________

People’s Artist of the Russian Federation S V Bezrukov recites powerful poetry by K M Simonov from the VOV. There are English subtitles… you have to hear the raw emotion that Sergei Vitalyevich gives to Konstantin Mikhailovich’s words. Bezrukov is one of the most-loved and most well-known actors in Russia today… every Russian knows who he is and what he stands for. Sergei Vitalyevich is a patriot, a true son of the Rodina, a modern successor to the great V S Lanovoi… unlike Hollywood, actors in Russia respect and honour the national patrimony. He stands for support of the patriot Peoples Republics in the Donbass… a stance that we should share.

You can stand with the American Establishment (and their running dogs amongst us like Potapov and Kishkovsky) or you can stand with Sergei Vitalyevich. I know where I stand… I confide that I’m far from being alone (although far too many in the American Orthodox diaspora have sold out to Anglo America and its pretty baubles and false non-culture). McCain, Graham, Clinton, Mattis, Mullen, and Trump had best take heed (Trump, so far, has refused to rein in the Uniate murderers… shall he?)… Russia has a record of defeating foreign aggressors…
