1 January 2017. Onward, Christian Soldiers!



What more need I say? The world won’t be safe until we kill neoliberalism and “conservatism”… greed is the capital sin, after all…

26 December 2016. A Christmas in Syria… Something Hated by the USA and the American Establishment



Read this… it has plenty of links and vids that you should see. American neoliberals, both Republicans and Democrats, brought this destruction to Syria. They hated Syria for being a secular semi-socialist state. They hated Libya for being a socialist state. They hated Federal Yugoslavia for being a socialist state. They hated Iraq under Saddam for being a secular semi-socialist state. They hated the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan for being a socialist state. There’s a pattern, isn’t there? American neoliberals HATE socialism… especially, Republican rightwing filth (and this includes so-called “paleocons”, too… their guru is the oligarch-enabler Buchanan). No decent person can have anything to do with neoliberalism, not even more “benign” outgrowths such as the so-called American Solidarity Party (they’re for the rich… that makes them neoliberals as much as the rest are).

Look at the wrecked Syrian cathedral. Neoliberalism did that (with a strong assist from the Israelis, KSA, and Gulf states… strange bedfellows, no?). Look at the Taliban… neoliberalism brought them in, they hated socialism so (yes… they’re Zbig’s kids from the wrong side of the blanket). Look at Bush II’s invasion of Iraq… neoliberalism did that. Look at the murder of Gaddafi… neoliberalism did that (that was a Clinton/Obama hit job). Look at the Easter bombing of Belgrade (the Clinton’s both chortled at that)… neoliberalism did that. There’s no more evil ideology afoot than neoliberalism… American “conservatives” are its most strident proponents. That’s why the Church shouldn’t have anything to do with such filth… HH doesn’t… it’s mostly American rightwing rebels who are trying to make us cheerleaders for neoliberalism. Look at Syria… it’s a socialist state. Why should we try to destroy them just so that bloated oligarchs can steal even more? The USA hasn’t fought a war of defence since the War of 1812. All of its wars have been either wars of aggression (including the murderous wars against the American Natives) or foreign wars without reference to American interest, save for World War II, which seems to be the exception that proves the rule.

I salute the Syrian people. As for us… as Americans, we’re sheeple. In the last election, the major parties gave us two ravening neoliberals… both warmongers, both greedsters, both haters of ordinary folk and lovers of the rich Establishment (indeed, both candidates moved in the same social circles and were close acquaintances). Are we in for a long night? Well… Syria isn’t in for that, thanks to Russia, Iran, and Hizbullah. Have we turned the corner? Is the American Moloch cornered? Maybe… maybe not. I’ll say this… the next four years aren’t going to be easy for working folk, Trump will see to that.

Keep the image of President Assad and the joy of Christmas that he brought in your heart… it’ll help you endure during the long oligarch occupation and rapine that lies ahead of us…

17 December 2016. BREAKING NEWS Syrian Forces Capture Foreign Minders of Terrorists… American and Israeli May Be Amongst Them

00 russian soldiers syrian kids 02 210416


This story is developing and the details aren’t nailed down yet. However, the Syrian forces captured 14 of the Western/KSA/Gulf minders of the terrorist bands in Aleppo. There may be an American and Israeli amongst them. The Syrian forces surrounded them in a bunker (for more detail, click here). This is a major change from the usual MO in dealing with American captives (or the corpses of dead Yanks)… up to this point, the policy was to hand them over to the Americans quietly (after interrogation, of course). This was so as to not embarrass the “exceptional” Americans overly much… as everyone knows how vicious and cruel Anglos are when they’re vexed, even in very minor ways. This signals a new approach… the Americans are to be held to task at every point, regardless of how “bad” it makes the Anglos feel. In short, no one fears the American Rubber Lion anymore. No one is going to unduly provoke it either, but no one fears it so much that the Yanks have a Get Out of Jail Free card whenever they muck about in sovereign countries without asking permission of the locals. Syria didn’t ask the USA to intervene, ergo, all Americans caught are technically war criminals waging aggressive war as per the Nürnberg standards set after World War II.

Note well the silence of the Western media. I wonder if they’re going to stonewall this or if they’re going to blubber about the Syrians nicking an innocent American? Neither tack is decent or truthful, is it (it speaks volumes of Sophia Kishkovskaya and Rod Dreher, doesn’t it? Both are willing journos in the service of the Western Moloch)? We’ll have to see…

Obama… Out Not With a Bang, But a Whimper

00 Vitaly Podvitsky. Obama the Peacemaker. 2014


This is the way the Obama administration ends… not with a bang, but a pathetic whimper. Queen of War Hillary “We Came, We Saw, He Died” Clinton’s campaign (fully supported by President Obama) spent a whopping 1.2 billion USD (73.21 billion Roubles. 8.29 billion Renminbi. 81 billion INR. 1.58 billion CAD. 1.61 billion AUD. 1.13 billion Euros. 944 million UK Pounds), but floundered ignominiously in the US presidential election. Therefore, Obama decided that the consolation “prize” was to order the “intelligence community” (a contradiction in terms) to conduct a “full review” of how the evil Russians handed out the Big Prize to Donald Trump. Famously, the Queen of War insisted throughout the campaign that “17 US intelligence agencies” confirmed Russian hacking of the Podesta emails, then, she claimed that WikiLeaks slow-dripped them (Chinese torture-style) day after day, revealing the slimy inner workings of the DNC. In fact, there was no damning verdict  from 17 intel agencies, just a dodgy comment by further disgraced Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper offering no evidence whatsoever.

Now, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos’ two-bit neocon-infested rag (the Washington Post… once-upon-a-time a decent newspaper) pipes up, mouthing sensationalist CIA spin that Langley has proof the Russians did manoeuvre to install their Trumpian Manchurian Candidate. This was right after the same rag went the full McCarthy, promoting a long black list remix of websites/news agencies (Sputnik included) denounced as fifth columnists and/or propaganda ops. Further enhancing its already negative credibility… constantly boosted by the neocon/neoliberal ravings of its editorial pages… to this day, the Post hasn’t retracted its infantile bogus “report”. The New McCarthyism’s intersection with the CIA at the Post couldn’t be more predictable; after all, Bezos’ Amazon is a major contractor with the CIA, thus, configuring the Post as a key US deep-state asset. Therefore, welcome to Washington’s alleged newspaper of record regurgitating a US government blacklist of American and foreign journalists.

One False Flag Too Many

As for the CIA’s intel breakthrough, it amounts to the proverbial “senior US official” reassuring US public opinion that the “consensus view” of the “intelligence community” is that “individuals with connections with the Russian government” provided WikiLeaks with the Podesta emails. Back in October, WikiLeaks had already debunked this narrative. Now, Langley hacks “secretly” briefed senators on Capitol Hill last week, breathlessly reassuring them the Russians did it. Yet, even the Post’s shoddy report had to acknowledge the proverbial “senior US official” saying “there were minor disagreements about the agency’s assessment”… as in no solid evidence of “the Kremlin ‘directing’ the identified individuals to pass the Democratic emails to WikiLeaks”. Therefore, this is essentially old debunked news repackaged (with no supporting facts) as a powerful indictment planted by the CIA on Washington’s alleged paper of record. No wonder the Trump transition team (under White House chief strategist Steve Bannon) duly punctured the CIA strategic balloon:

These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

Case closed. Go back to play with your plastic toys. Even kindergarten hopefuls know, based on the historical record, that the US government (and the CIA, as well) specialise in lying non-stop. Sometimes the lies are cumulative; sometimes they contradict each other. Take the sarin gas attack in Ghouta in August 2013… this propelled the US government to the brink of a renewed Shock and Awe on Syria. US intel at the time was sure that Jabhat al-Nusra (AKA al-Qaeda in Syria… or “moderate rebels”, according to the Beltway “consensus”) could produce sarin gas. Yet, Obama insisted Assad had done it, thus, violating Obama’s silly self-proclaimed red line. Straight out of the neocons-do-Iraq playbook, Obama cherry-picked intel to justify what would’ve been a war on Syria. fact is, the sarin gas went to al-Nusra because of the influence wielded by the notorious Prince Bandar… then tasked by the House of Saud to provoke régime change in Damascus by all means necessary. In fact, Bandar was even more influential than the CIA; he was directly coordinating the handout of tons of cash and weaponising to jihadists in Syria, as well as concocting false flags such as Ghouta. All this after Obama himself ordered, in early 2012, a CIA rat-line through the Turkish-Syrian border of Libyan weapons destined to supply the “moderate rebels”.

The bottom line is that Nobel Peace Prize Obama… lying through his teeth like a lowly neocon… was on the brink of launching a full-scale war on Syria for a “crime” about which there was no evidence.  Moreover, the lies accumulate as the Obama administration’s elaborate Syrian plans flounder in the East Aleppo cauldron. This (in Arabic) is how the “moderate rebels” were expelled… revealing, in parallel, how Damascus profited from inside intel as myriad “rebel” outfits were fighting among themselves. This is about facts on the ground… not the relentless US government propaganda/psy-ops campaign about evil Russians bombing hospitals. The whimpering Obama administration isn’t over yet. Expect more sensational CIA exploits, more demonisation of Russia, more weaponising of “moderate” Syrian “rebels”, and even the odd false flag
