西方精英及其媒体走狗鄙视俄罗斯总统普京,对此毫不掩饰。 其原因应该是相当明显的。 普京已经放弃了美国在叙利亚和乌克兰的野心,与华盛顿在亚洲最大的战略对手中国结盟,目前正在加强与欧洲的经济联系,这对美国在中亚的主导地位构成了长期威胁。 普京还更新了他的核武库,这使得华盛顿无法使用与其他更脆弱的国家相同的欺凌策略。 因此,媒体想要妖魔化普京,贬低他为冷血的“克格勃暴徒”,也是可以理解的。 当然,这不是真的,但它与普京出于纯粹的邪恶目的疯狂地对美国进行秘密战争的虚假叙述相吻合。 无论如何,媒体根深蒂固的俄罗斯恐惧症已经变得如此极端,以至于他们无法在不疯狂转向幻想世界的情况下报道即使是简单的事件。 以纽约时报对普京最近于 15 月 XNUMX 日在联邦议会发表的讲话为例的报道。 时报的怪诞分析表明,他们的记者对传达普京实际所说的话没有兴趣,而是宁愿使用一切手段可以说服他们的读者,普京是一个被他对权力贪得无厌的欲望驱动的精明的暴君。 查看《泰晤士报》文章的摘录:

“现在没有人知道克里姆林宫内发生了什么。 也许这正是重点。 弗拉基米尔·V·普京总统上周宣布了宪法改革,这可能为他在余生中统治俄罗斯创造新的途径……(错误)

该法案的细则表明,总理的权力不会像最初宣传的那样扩大,而国务院成员似乎仍会按照总统的意愿任职。 所以也许普京先生的计划毕竟是留任总统?......(又错了)

一位名叫 Yury Saprykin 的记者在 Facebook 上表达了类似的观点,但在诗句中:

我们将讨论他如何不离开,
我们会猜测,他会离开还是不会。
然后——瞧! ——他不会离开。
也就是说,在选举之前他不会离开,
之后,他绝对不会离开。” (错了,第三次)

(“大变化? 或者可能不是。 普京的计划让俄罗斯猜不透”, “纽约时报”)

这真是可怕的分析。 是的,“普京上周宣布修宪”,但这与一些险恶的继续执政计划毫无关系,任何读过演讲的人都会知道这一点。 不幸的是,关于该主题的其他 100 多篇“千篇一律”文章中的大多数都得出了与 也就是说,普京在讲话中宣布的改变,只是掩盖了他的真实意图,即尽可能延长他的任期。 再一次,演讲本身没有任何内容支持这些说法,这只是又一次抹黑普京的企图。

那么,普京在联邦议会的年度讲话中究竟说了些什么呢?

嗯,这就是有趣的地方。 他宣布改变社会安全网,为年轻家庭提供更多经济援助,改善医疗保健系统,提高教师工资,为教育、医院、学校、图书馆提供更多资金。 他承诺启动一个“社会契约”体系,承诺国家减少贫困和提高生活水平。 他承诺为学童提供更健康的膳食,降低首次购房者的利率,为工薪家庭提供更大的经济支持,提高养老金领取者的支出,提高最低工资,为“课外技术和工程中心网络”提供额外资金. 普京还添加了这个宝石:

“学前班和小学的孩子们接受一个大家庭的真正价值观非常重要——家庭是爱、幸福、母亲和父亲的快乐,家庭是几代人的牢固纽带,团结一致尊重老人、关爱孩子,让每个人都有自信、安全、可靠的感觉。 如果年轻一代接受这种情况是自然的,作为他们成年生活的道德和不可分割的组成部分和可靠的背景支持,那么我们将能够迎接保障俄罗斯发展成为一个成功的大国的历史挑战。”

自然,像这样发自内心的声明永远不会出现在《纽约时报》或任何其他西方媒体的页面上。 取而代之的是,美国人被更多同样无情的普京精神充斥着,这已经成为有线电视新闻的主要内容。 关于普京的谎言、诽谤和捏造的洪流如此持续和势不可挡,唯一可以绝对肯定的是,MSM 中关于普京的任何内容都是不可信的。 对此,毫无疑问。

也就是说,普京是一位政治家,这意味着他可能根本不会兑现他的承诺。 这是一个非常现实的可能性。 但如果真是这样,那为什么他的前总理梅德韦杰夫在演讲后立即辞职? 梅德韦杰夫和他的整个内阁都辞职了,因为他们意识到普京已经抛弃了西方资本主义模式,正在朝着完全不同的方向前进。 普京现在专注于加强福利国家计划,以帮助人们摆脱贫困、提高生活水平并缩小日益扩大的不平等差距。 他想要一个新的团队来帮助他实现他的愿景,这就是梅德韦杰夫和工作人员得到他们的步行纸的原因。 以下是 The Saker 在最近一篇文章中的总结 Unz评论:

“新政府清楚地表明,特别是在米舒斯京总理和他的第一副总理安德烈·别洛乌索夫的提名下:他们都被记录为俄罗斯所谓的“国家资本主义”的非常支持者:这意味着一种经济哲学国家并没有扼杀私人企业家精神,而是国家直接和大力参与为政府和私营部门的发展创造正确的经济条件。 最关键的是,“国家资本主义”还使企业界的唯一目标(盈利)服从于国家利益,因此也服从于人民的利益。 换句话说,再见涡轮资本主义,大西洋一体化主义者!” (“俄罗斯新政府”,The Saker)

这正是俄罗斯目前正在发生的事情。 普京正在摆脱华盛顿寄生的资本主义模式,取而代之的是一个更良性的版本,可以更好地满足人民的需求。 这种新版本的“管理资本主义”将民选官员置于系统的领导地位,以保护公众免受市场力量的野蛮和长期严苛的紧缩。 这是一个旨在帮助普通人的系统,而不是华尔街或全球银行黑手党。

但是,尽管俄罗斯经济模式的变化很大,但最受关注的是普京的政治变化。 他是这样说的:

(The)“国际法和条约的要求以及国际机构的决定仅在不限制我们人民和公民的权利和自由且不与我们的宪法相抵触的情况下才能在俄罗斯领土上有效……。 ”

这是什么意思? 这是否意味着普京不会尊重国际法或与邻国签署的条约? 不,事实并非如此,普京一直是国际法和联合国安理会的热心支持者。 他坚信,这些机构在维护全球安全方面发挥着至关重要的作用,这是他非常关心的一个问题。 俄罗斯总统似乎在说,俄罗斯人民和俄罗斯主权政府的权利优先于外国公司、条约或自由贸易协定。 俄罗斯不会允许强大而阴险的全球主义跨国公司控制国家权力的政治和经济杠杆,就像他们在世界各国所做的那样。 普京进一步澄清了这一点说:

“俄罗斯只能作为一个主权国家保持俄罗斯。 我们国家的主权必须是无条件的。 我们为实现这一目标做了很多工作。 我们恢复了国家的统一,克服了政府某些权力基本上被寡头氏族篡夺的局面。 ......我们创造了强大的储备,这增加了我们国家的稳定性和保护(我们)免受任何外国压力企图的能力。”

对于普京来说,主权是一个国家自治的最高权力,是国家合法化的基本原则,只要国家忠实地代表人民的意志。 他稍后在演讲中详细阐述了这一点,他说:

“人民的意见,我们的公民作为主权的承担者和主要的权力来源,必须是决定性的。 归根结底,一切都由人民决定,无论是现在还是未来。”

因此,尽管俄罗斯和美国的民主制度可能存在显着差异,但基本原则是一样的,政府的首要责任是履行“人民意志”。 在这方面,普京的政治哲学与美国宪法的制定者没有太大区别。 然而,不同的是普京对自由贸易的态度。 与美国不同,普京不认为自由贸易协定会削弱国家权威。 大多数美国人没有意识到像北美自由贸易协定这样的贸易协定通常包含阻止政府为人民的最大利益行事的条款。 全球主义贸易法阻止政府向公司提供激励措施以减缓制造业工作的外包,它们破坏了环境法规和食品安全法。 其中一些协议甚至保护血汗工厂所有者和其他侵犯人权者免受惩罚或起诉。

难怪普京不愿意参与这种不道德的骗局? 难怪他为什么觉得有必要明确说明俄罗斯只会遵守那些“不限制我们人民和公民的权利和自由,不与我们的宪法相抵触”的法律和条约? 又是普京:

“请不要忘记我们国家在 1991 年之后发生的事情。在苏联解体之后,……还有威胁和危险,其规模之大是任何人都无法想象的。 ……因此……我们必须建立一个牢固、可靠和刀枪不入的体系,该体系在外部轮廓上绝对稳定,并能切实保障俄罗斯的独立和主权。”

那么苏联解体后发生了什么?

美国派出一群残酷的经济学家到莫斯科协助“休克疗法”运动,该运动破坏了社会安全网,破坏了养老金,使失业、无家可归、贫困和酗酒增加了许多数量级,加速了私有化的下滑这助长了一代贪婪的寡头,并使实体经济陷入令人难以忍受的长期萧条。

经济学家约瑟夫·斯蒂格利茨(Joseph Stiglitz)密切关注当时俄罗斯的事件,并总结如下:

“在俄罗斯,人们被告知资本主义将带来前所未有的新繁荣。 事实上,它带来了前所未有的贫困,不仅表现在生活水平下降,不仅表现在 GDP 下降,而且表现在寿命缩短和其他大量社会指标表明生活质量下降......

例如,俄罗斯的贫困人口数量从 2% 增加到…… 40% 到 50% 之间,超过二分之一的儿童生活在贫困线以下的家庭中。 对于这些人中的大多数人来说,市场经济是一个比共产党人所说的更糟糕的敌人。 ……在前苏联的一些(部分)地区,GDP、国民收入下降了 70% 以上。 有了那个更小的馅饼,它的分配越来越不均,所以少数人得到的饼越来越大,而大多数人最后得到的馅饼越来越少……。 (PBS 采访约瑟夫·斯蒂格利茨,《制高点》)

在华盛顿的特工忙于抢劫莫斯科的同时,北约正在将其部队、装甲师和导弹基地转移到更靠近俄罗斯边境的地方,这明显违反了向米哈伊尔·戈尔巴乔夫做出的不将其军队“向东一英寸”移动的承诺。 目前,自 1941 年 20 月德国为巴巴罗萨行动集结以来,俄罗斯西翼的作战部队和武器数量比以往任何时候都多。自然,俄罗斯感到受到边境上这支公然敌对力量的威胁。 (顺便说一句,本周,“美国正在对欧洲进行自冷战时代以来规模最大、最具挑衅性的部署。据美国驻欧洲军事网站称:“演习 DEFENDER-Europe XNUMX 是一个师级规模的部署从美国到欧洲的可靠作战力量……五角大楼及其北约盟国正在鲁莽地模拟与俄罗斯的全面战争,以阻止莫斯科加强与欧洲的经济联系。)以下是普京的更多信息:

“我相信,现在是就稳定的世界秩序的基本原则和人类面临的最严峻问题进行认真和直接讨论的时候了。 要表现出政治意愿、智慧和勇气。 时代要求我们意识到我们共同的责任和实际行动。”

这是普京自 2007 年在慕尼黑发表开创性演讲以来多次重申的主题,他说:

“我们看到对国际法基本原则越来越不屑一顾。 事实上,独立的法律规范越来越接近一国的法律制度。 一个州,当然首先是美国,在各个方面都超越了国界。 这在它强加于其他国家的经济、政治、文化和教育政策中可见一斑。 好吧,谁喜欢这个? 谁对此感到高兴?……” (“战争没有减弱”:普京 2007 年的标志性慕尼黑演讲,你管)

普京反对的是美国随时选择单方面行动。 正是华盛顿反复无常地无视国际法,破坏了中东和中亚广大地区的稳定,让世界领导人处于紧张状态,他们不知道下一次危机会在哪里爆发,或者有多少人会受到影响。 正如普京在慕尼黑所说,“没有人感到安全。” 没有人觉得他们可以指望国际法或联合国安理会决议的保护。

普京:

“看看中东和北非的局势……激进的干预没有带来改革,反而摧毁了政府机构和当地的生活方式。 现在没有民主和进步,而是暴力、贫困、社会灾难和完全无视人权,甚至包括生命权……

中东和北非一些国家的权力真空显然导致了无政府状态的出现,这些地区迅速被极端分子和恐怖分子所占据。 所谓的伊斯兰国有成千上万的武装分子为之战斗,其中包括2003年入侵后留在街上的前伊拉克士兵。 许多新兵来自利比亚,由于严重违反联合国安全理事会第1973号决议,其国家地位遭到破坏。”

普京是否夸大了华盛顿在摧毁伊拉克、利比亚、叙利亚和阿富汗方面的作用,或者这是对美国在该地区有害和破坏稳定的作用的公平评估? 整个文明都被浪费掉了,数百万人被杀或分散在该地区,以实现某种模糊的战略优势或帮助以色列消灭其认为的敌人。 所有这些军事冒险主义都可以追溯到苏联的解体和美国权力掮客的胜利主义反应,他们将俄罗斯的崩溃视为他们新世界秩序的绿灯。

华盛顿为自己的胜利而陶醉,并欣然接受其主导全球决策的能力,并在其认为合适的任何地方进行单方面干预。 这个不可或缺的国家不再需要为联合国安理会或国际法等手续而烦恼。 甚至主权也被认为是在新的无国界企业帝国中没有立足之地的过时概念。 真正重要的是将西方资本主义传播到地球的四个角落,尤其是那些拥有重要资源(ME)或爆炸性增长潜力的地区。 (欧亚大陆)那些地区才是真正的奖品。

但随后发生了意想不到的事情。 华盛顿的战争无休止地拖延,而新的权力中心逐渐出现。 突然间,全球主义乌托邦不再触手可及,美国世纪甚至在它开始之前就已经结束了。 与此同时,俄罗斯和中国一直在变得更加强大。 他们要求结束单边主义并回归国际法,但他们的要求被断然拒绝。 尽管胜利的希望越来越渺茫,但战争和干预仍在继续。 又是普京:

“毫无疑问,主权是整个国际关系体系的核心概念。 对它的尊重及其巩固将有助于在国家和国际层面上维护和平与稳定……首先,所有国家都必须有平等和不可分割的安全。” (瓦尔代国际讨论俱乐部的会议,“进行中的未来:塑造明天的世界”,来自俄罗斯总统办公室)

的确,主权是全球安全所依赖的基本原则,然而,西方精英如此渴望消灭的却是主权。 强大的跨国公司希望消除现有的边界,以促进货物和人员在一个跨越整个地球的巨大、相互关联的自由贸易区中不受限制、免关税流动。 虽然他们的计划在叙利亚和乌克兰被普京破坏,但他们在非洲、南美和东南亚取得了进展。 病毒无法遏制,只能根除。 这是普京:

“基本上,整个全球化项目在今天和欧洲都处于危机之中,正如我们所熟知的,我们现在听到有人说多元文化主义已经失败了。 我认为这种情况在很多方面是1980年前一些国家的精英做出错误、仓促和某种程度上过度自信的选择的结果。 那时,在 1990 年代末至 XNUMX 年代初,不仅有机会加速全球化进程,而且还有机会赋予它不同的品质,使其在本质上更加和谐和可持续。

但是,一些在冷战中将自己视为胜利者的国家,不仅以这种方式看待自己,而且公开表示,采取了仅仅重塑全球政治和经济秩序以符合自身利益的做法。

在他们的狂喜中,他们基本上放弃了与国际生活中的其他行为者进行实质性和平等的对话,选择不改进或创建普遍的机构,而是试图将整个世界置于他们自己的组织、规范和规则的传播之下。 他们选择全球化和安全的道路是为了自己心爱的自己,是为了少数人,而不是为了所有人。” (瓦尔代国际讨论俱乐部会议)

正如普京所说,这是一个“让全球化更加和谐和可持续”的机会,(也许中国的“一带一路”倡议会做到这一点。)但华盛顿精英拒绝了这一想法,而是选择将自己的自我扩张愿景强加于世界。 结果,整个欧洲出现了示威和骚乱,右翼民粹主义政党兴起,大多数人对基本的民主制度不再有信心。 西方版本的全球化已被彻底否定为一个骗局,它把财富洒在心计的亿万富翁身上,同时把普通的劳动人民晾在一边。 又是普京:

“似乎精英们没有看到社会分层的加深和中产阶级的侵蚀……(但这种情况)创造了一种不确定的气氛,直接影响了公众情绪。

世界各地进行的社会学研究表明,不同国家和不同大陆的人们往往认为未来是阴暗和黯淡的。 这真是难过;这真是伤心。 未来不会吸引他们,而是让他们害怕。 与此同时,人们看不到改变任何事物、影响事件和制定政策的真正机会或手段。” (瓦尔代国际讨论俱乐部会议)

诚然,现在的生活更加艰难,而且看起来更加艰难,但普京的补救措施是什么,或者他有什么补救措施? 他会阻止潮流并扭转全球化的影响吗? 他是否会破坏华盛顿控制中东重要资源的计划,成为中亚的主要参与者,并加强对全球权力的控制?

不,普京几乎没有那么雄心勃勃。 正如他在演讲中指出的那样,他的近期目标是改革经济,以消除贫困,让财富更加平等地分配。 这些是有助于软化资本主义和降低社会动荡可能性的实际补救措施。 他还希望通过巩固俄罗斯主权来抵御对国家的潜在威胁。 这就是为什么他要增加宪法修正案。 目的是保护俄罗斯免受在该国境内活动的有害外国特工或第五专栏作家的侵害。 底线:普京看到了世界上正在发生的事情,并制定了一条最符合俄罗斯人民利益的路线。 美国人会很幸运有一位这样做的领导人。

  7. Westcosast 说:

    Putin is a president in an oligarchy where the fossil fuel oligarch reign. To characterize this as state capitalism when the profits are privatized is a fiction. Rather than to submit to a carbon tax they have flipped Putin in the opposite direction. He is now granted \$40 billion in tax breaks to the biggest fossil fuel oligarchs–Rosneft and Gazprom. These are privatised companies that were formerly state companies in the former USSR. Instead of reversing the trend Putin has escalated privatization. Worse, he is concentrating all of Russia’s money in the fossil fuel industry at a time when it is necessary for human civilization to turn away from fossil fuels in order to survive. The new prime minister said development of fossil fuels in Siberia will be the economic cornerstone of the economy. Any prosperity will be short-term and short lived.

    Only someone completely ignorant of the science and the meltdown of the Arctic and its drastic impact on humanity and life on earth can praise this as a good move. Putin himself is a science denier and does not attribute climate change to human activity but to natural cycles. He stated this recently. Not everyone in Russian government supported given trillions of rubles in tax breaks to the privatized fossil fuel corporations. Putin’s reorganization helped to push out those in opposition and to consolidate his agenda and power. There is no doubt about that. He showed his true hand when he elevated retirement age in Russia. The rest is promises. Meanwhile 50% of agricultural land in Russia is being destroyed by permafrost melt. And the East Siberian Arctic shelf has the highest amount of methane escaping daily yet in human history. The oceans are turning acid and soon all of Putin’s and Xi’s plans may dissolve. Moscow itself has seen no winter this year.

  8. “This new version of ‘managed capitalism’ places elected officials at the head of the system to protect the public from the savagery of market forces and from perennial-grinding austerity. It’s a system aimed at helping ordinary people not Wall Street or the global bank Mafia.”

    “Managed capitalism” . Ho, ho, ho. 😂

    Despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, it seems that a never-ending stream of brainwashed idiots worldwide still believe that the natural anarchy of markets can be successfully controlled/contained/managed by a bunch of pseudo intellectual , power hungry, “insider”,government paid dim-wits who somehow know whats best for everyone else, at all times. Yeah right! 🤣

    If the Russian populace accepts/believes any of this “Managed capitalism” B.S then they deserve exactly what they are gonna get: more poverty and a much lower standard of living for the average Russian “Joe”. “Stupid is as stupid does” , I guess 🙈

    Putins”new direction” signals nothing more than a slow , stealthy return to the full on communism of his predecessors.

    But then again, Putin always was/is a commie. He just pretended to be something else for a while.

    “The idea that socialism is a share-the-wealth program is strictly a confidence game to get the people to surrender their freedom to an all-powerful collectivist government. While the Insiders tell us we are building a paradise on earth, we are actually constructing a jail for ourselves.” ― Gary Allen, None Dare Call It Conspiracy

    Putin has rolled back US ambitions in Syria and Ukraine

    The Russian expeditionary force only went to Syria after the US decided not to himmer Assad with airstrikes. Ukraine is now in effect allied with the US.

    Putin has rolled back US ambitions in Syria and Ukraine, aligned himself with Washington’s biggest strategic rival in Asia, China,

    It was the growth of China and its insatiable demand for low value added products such as fertiliser and steel that rescued the moribund Russian rust belt economy.

    Putin has also updated his nuclear arsenal which makes it impossible for Washington to use the same bullyboy tactics it’s used on other, more vulnerable countries.

    Putin has a huge number of old battlefield nukes (tactical nuclear weapons) along the border with China. Striking from Manchuria “overland to the Sea of Okhotsk in order to cut off the region, followed by the capture of Vladivostok might appear a tempting ‘small war’” China has not forgot being bullied into signing the unequal treaties of 1860 . Even with battlefield nukes once you go nuclear the ladder of escalation will be climbed. That is why the Warsaw Pact and Nato had tens of thousands of tanks and masses of artillery facing one another as if nuclear weapons had never been invented. Chinese economic infiltration of Russia means the Chinese will not have to invade in all likelihood. In relation to a superpower strategic exchange: ‘The threat of an incredible action is not a credible deterrent. ‘ America has the world’s most powerful economy and a conventional fight with it in a global war is one Russia could not start and hope to win even with China’s help.

    The torrent of lies, libels and fabrications about Putin are so constant and so overwhelming, that the only thing of which one can be absolutely certain, is that nothing that is written about Putin in the MSM can be trusted. Of that, there is no doubt.

    That is American MSM, who represent the same kind of people as Medvedev does. The difference is, ten million of Medvedev ‘s constituency (affluent educated urbanised economic elites) have left the country and the outflow is increasingly coming from the provinces. Immigration dooms Trump, but emigration helps Putin and whoever he chooses as successor.

    https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2019/01/16/official-data-vastly-underestimates-russian-emigration-report-a64158

    The deep State of Russia know it is stagnating technologically under Putin and because the genetic seed corn is scattered to the four winds in future there will be a problem finding people able enough to be administrators. It is a bit like Hitler bemoaning the fact that all the best German blood had left Germany, and proposing to conquer Russia to make Germany’s empire a place with a higher standard of living than America to mabe lure the German-Americans back.

    Putin is breaking away from Washington’s parasitic model of capitalism and replacing it with a more benign version that better addresses the needs of the people

    His people are the lower orders of society that constituted the losers of the post Soviet era, so yes he is helping them. But how is he going to stop the intelligent people (the Russian winners) leaving for the West? It is not just a matter of high birthrate, you need intelligent parents to breed the future elite, and the emigres are never going to come back.

    It seems you were misinformed. Rosneft and Gazprom are still state-owned, the latter mostly and the former entirely. So if indeed Putin did grant them these tax breaks, it’s just one branch of the government transferring money to another branch of government–sort of like when the Social Security Administration here in the US buy bonds from the Treasury Department. It’s just an accounting gimmick, not gift to ‘oligarchs’. (BTW, why is it that the media never refer to Soros, Bezos or the Rockefellers as ‘oligarchs’? Why only Russians?)

    For Putin sovereignty, which is the supreme power of a state to govern itself, is the bedrock principle which legitimizes the state provided the state faithfully represents the will of the people. He elaborates on this point later in his speech saying:

    那么苏联解体后发生了什么?

    The United States dispatched a cabal of cutthroat economists to Moscow to assist in the “shock therapy” campaign that collapsed the social safety net, savaged pensions, increased unemployment, homelessness, poverty, and alcoholism by many orders of magnitude, accelerated the slide to privatization that fueled a generation of voracious oligarchs, and sent the real economy plunging into an excruciating long-term depression.

    Basically the NWO mafia saw that there was an opportunity to loot the place and they did it – gaining ownership – and stripping everything of value out of the place.

    If the US public had the sense to realize it, it’s the same as is currently happening to them.

    Excellent article and an almost perfect analysis of the current state of dysfunctional insanity that has been imposed on the world, as a direct result of allowing these mostly jewish neocons to seize the USA by the hair of it’s head and to hijack American economic and military power and then use it to advance their pathologically destructive agenda.

    One point that I wish Whitney had made in a more direct fashion is this: To fully understand the criminal, arrogant and predatory behavior of the USA over the last 20 or so years – and in order to understand how we have been transformed into the global wide threat that Putin has correctly defined, one needs to ask themselves this question:

    “What other nation has repeatedly and arrogantly shown their disdain and complete refusal to conduct itself in a civilized, diplomatic, and rational manner that is in accordance with International Law? What other nation routinely violates the sovereignty of it’s neighbors and sends military aircraft over their neighbor’s sovereign airspace and drops bombs that kill and destroy citizens and the property of those sovereign nations – and then turns around and has the gall to threaten the nation it just attacked with even greater destruction if it dares to retaliate? What other nation believes it has the right to trick high ranking military and/or civilian political leaders into accepting an invitation to attend a peace conference in a neutral nation such as Iraq and then, ignoring the leadership of that neutral nation – proceeds to use a drone strike to murder that high ranking military leader and his civilian political leader associates? ”

    In case the answer to all of these questions isn’t obvious – let me provide the name of that other nation. Israel. The point I am making is that the USA has been so effectively hijacked by the state of Israel and that the current White House has such a toxic infestation of jewish neocons and their treasonous, toe licking, shabez goy puppets – that the USA is behaving exactly like Israel has behaved ever since they stole that piece of territory in 1947.

    The USA has been transformed into a criminal-thug-gangster state as a direct consequence of the fact that it is now controlled by radical, blood thirsty, war mongering jewish supremacists who believe that they are above the law.

    This death grip that this tribe now has on the throat of America cannot have a happy ending. Sooner or later, Russia and China are going to have to stick a fork in this Red, White and Blue kosher hijacked monster. Sooner or later, every Bully will push the wrong opponent and wind up getting his ass stomped in the dirt.

    It is only a matter of time before the USA gets its due.

    Great article, Mike Whitney. So far it’s the only one I’ve seen that reveals a coherent hard core in what Putin seeks to achieve with a seemingly bureaucratic rejiggering of the constitution and ruling echelon. Maybe he’s finally ending the humiliating indecision that has stymied Russia the past three decades: Will the country keep trying to be yet another pale copy of the financialized U.S. economic sphere, powered by dollar hegemony? Or, will it free itself from predatory corporate domination in order to duplicate the obvious success of sovereign next-door China? If your analysis is on the mark, Putin may have now found the answer to Russia’s debilitating post-Soviet identity crisis.

    Trump’s unexpected election and the parallel rise of nationalism in docile Europe suggests that much the same crisis has now emerged within the Western empire. Will it be borderless neofeudal corporatism for the benefit of those at the top of the social pyramid or will working people regain a voice in their own government? Reading those troubled tea leaves, Putin may have picked the right moment to launch Russia on the more promising path.

    No need to qualify the cause of this nefarious plan by referencing some nebulous objective. There was nothing nebulous about it.

I don’t know enough about strategy to be able to use BOGO coupons, but even I can see how weird it was for Mussolini to take a notion to invade Greece, and how obvious it would be for Allies to see the usefulness of such a gambit.

    Ever notice that for all the shouting we hear of “Fascism,” very little is explored of the real role of Italy and Mussolini in the Allied take-down of Western Europe.

    Guido Preparata has written a bit about the Mussolini-Hitler relationship, but he studiously avoids in depth discussion of the deliberate discombobulation of Italy by FDR and, earlier, by Wilson.

    Gian Giacomo Migone produced one economics-based study —
    The United States and Fascist Italy: The Rise of American Finance in Europe

    [A] powerful argument for the continuities of U.S. economic policy from the post–World War I period to the post–World War II period, a primary goal of which was the stabilization of Europe as an outlet for U.S. capital and manufactured goods.
    In this project, Mussolini was a key component. Instead of viewing him as the destroyer of democracy in Italy, many Americans saw him as the guarantor of stability and a willing partner in U.S. capitalist expansion in the 1920s. This commitment required peace, which Mussolini dutifully offered, contrary to all his bellicose rhetoric, because he needed U.S. investment to stabilize his fledgling dictatorship. It was only the Depression and the contraction of U.S. economic involvement in Europe that broke this close relationship and led Italy down the path of imperialism and war.

When he “pushed” [a calculated gamble that did not involve ethnic “Russian” forces] he paid a small price at Dier az Zor , about 2 years ago. There were no raving speeches, no “Red Lines”, and no threats. Message and Response. Fire from the sky. All business-like.

President Trump let all the players know that the U.S. knew where the Iranians were going to hide and what would happen if things got out of hand. Putin got 3 messages, (a) the U.S. is watching, always, (b) the blow, if it came, would be precise, brutal, and out of the dark (the B-52(s) in the Dier az Zor desert was/were at the core of the message), (c) the U.S. didn’t follow up with a kill shot against the Iranian Navy, Air Force, nuclear facilities, and/or capital, i.e. a Deal not Destruction.] The U.S. ignored the firing of obsolescent liquid-fueled Scuds (after warnings) and the chaotic downing of the airliner.

    A persuasive argument, anon (837).

    re Barbarossa: Was Hitler blinded by his hatred – 恐惧 of Bolsheviks? After all, Germans had a front-row seat to the mass deaths, and also experienced the turmoil Communist Internationalists brought into Germany in an attempt to turn Germany into a showplace for the Communist movement.

    R H S Stolfi argues that Hitler was “a Romantic” — was he caught up in a Wagnerian fantasy?

    Today, we are crowding on 200 years removed from Napoleon, but his drama and exploits would have dominated the memories, visions and dreams of Europeans in the wars era. War was a grand adventure — George Orwell volunteered with the Trotskyites in the Spanish war; so did many Englishmen, even after the disaster to the British of WWI. War was surcease of boredom.

    Another point: as Benjamin Ginsberg states unambiguously: Jews in FDR’s administration and thousands of American and (fewer) German Jews actively partnered with and supported Stalin and Communism in the fight to destroy Germany.

    –Then there’s Mackinder: The British were determined to prevent any alliance between Germany & Russia; FDR concurred.

    All that said, it is my impression that Germany was to be destroyed one way or the other.

    Operation Barbarossa was launched b/c Stalin had 5 million troops stations in near-frontline positions to invade Germany (and, since Germany was the primary defense, the rest of Europe), and was continuing to conscript men and produce a huge number of planes and tanks daily (with the help of the Zionist Anglo bloc) to facilitate that invasion.

    If you know actual history instead of the fabricated Zionist Anglo one, you will know he (and the rest of the German leadership) felt Germany had no choice but for a preemptive strike, thinking they would fare better in an unexpected strike than waiting for Stalin to be good and ready for his invasion.

    I see a similar parallel in the Asia-Pacific as well. I’ve not seen anybody make this argument, but it seems Imperial Japan had to be destroyed to allow China to become what it is today. Asia would’ve been far better off under Japanese leadership than under any kind of Chinese dominance.
    China ideally should be broken into several different states, which is why after the Russo-Japanese war, the Russian and Japanese empires swiftly turned into partners partitioning Chinese territories between themselves, from 1907 to 1916. I have a feeling that World War I was created not just to destroy a rising Germany, but also to put a stop to Russo-Japanese cooperation that partitioned northern parts of China between themselves. The globalist parasites hated the prospect of Russia and Japan cooperating just as much as Russia and Germany cooperating.

    Essentially, “managed capitalism”/fascism is just a minor variation on the ever popular grand theme,[ always good for a laugh- ‘coz if you don’t laugh you’re gonna cry], top-down” , gloriously failed [and always failing- unless you are an elite insider] economic system commonly known as “communism” .

    Both fascism and communism are nothing more than fancy, intellectualized terms for economic “collectivism”, or “Socialism”.

    In other words, they are more or less the exact same, pro-elite, anti-free-market, anti-capitalist bull\$hit dressed up with different labels, that’s all,to give the gullible/easily fooled the impression that “this time”, they’re getting something new and different , that will “work” and actually improve their sorry lives[ “there’s a sucker born every day”, as the saying goes].

    Fact:Mussolini [usually credited as the “inventor” of fascism], was formerly the head [or close to it, I forget which], of the Italian communist party.

    Fact: Hitler, [who adopted most of Mussolini’s idiotic ideas and then “took the ball and ran with it” , to add even more idiocy to Mussolini’s already idiotic mix, for “good measure”], started his sorry political life as a hard-core communist, and some say he remained a [secret] commie throughout his latter-day er, “career”.

    ­The move comes shortly after the Magnitsky Act, which saw US legislators attempting to exert pressure on Russia’s judicial system. A court in Washington is now attempting to penalize Russia for its possession of a collection of books, manuscripts and other Judaic documents.According to the ruling, Russia would be required to pay \$50,000 a day to Chabad Lubavitch, an Orthodox Jewish movement headquartered in New York City, until it releases the Schneerson Library, of which the Jewish group claims rightful ownership.”It is outrageous that a Washington court has taken this unprecedented step fraught with most serious consequences as the imposition of a fine on a sovereign state,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Thursday.The ministry statement slammed the US ruling as “exterritoral in nature,”

    Nazism contained within itself the ideology of racial supremacy and one of its requirements was the pursuit of heroic feats to consolidate and foster its creed.

    It goes far back in time and was enshrined in the concept of Natural Law as part of the Roman Law tradition, still applicable today in most Civil Law countries. Philosophers as far back as Aristotle, Cicero and Thomas Aquinas stressed the supreme values underlying the legal rights of the person vis-a-vis the state and the powerful and the Enlightenment carried the legal and moral precepts to the political field.

    Human Rights means respect for the dignity of man – not the indignities propagated by the elites who control power and culture as tools to entertain the oppressed plebes.

    If we assume that that buck stops with Putin and he has the last say on big important matters, then the idea that he is simply very cautious, and also cognizant of Russia’s limitations to survive in a full-on financial conflict with the West…

    I have noticed the same pattern with China…although their central bank is completely free of foreign influence and acts in its people’s interest…however with things such as the WTO for instance, the Chinese have accepted to play by rules of the global financial order…I remember one of the CCP officials once said that they believed they could beat the west at their own game…hence accepting to be part of the ‘system’…

    I think both Putin and Xi may be right…discretion is the better part of valor…besides, these men are well aware that the clock is ticking for the globalist finance Frankenstein…it’s only a matter of time before the feet of clay crumble…

    I think the significance of this course correction in Russia [modest as it may be] is that we may see something akin to that of New Deal’s Reconstruction Finance Corporation…which really built up America in the decades of the 1930s to ’50s…

    The privately-owned and plutocrat-controlled Federal Reserve did not want to play this role of financing things like public utilities, rural electrification, infrastructure and much much more…big surprise there, no…?

    …members of Congress and the public, wanted the Federal Reserve to be more active as the Great Depression began—for instance, by increasing the amount of money in circulation and liquidating financial markets. Opponents of these proposals believed that they would eventually create high inflation, hurting the economy in the long term.

    And the same Plutocrat bullshit about inflation is still wheeled out today, whenever sound ideas about building up the commons is floated…

    Btw…the New Deal and the RFC was probably the driver that reduced the share of national wealth by the 0.1 percent from 23 in the 1920s, to just eight percent in the postwar years…today it is right back to the mid twenties for the parasites…

    The Russian Central Bank is still under BIS rules near as I can tell. I didn’t see where the new Constitution converted Russian money power to a sovereign type. Anybody else? Nobody is mentioning it… the changes are only within the political structure. Now is the time, and they are not grabbing the opportunity to fix the money power.

    Russia mostly keeps USD to protect Ruble exchange rate. USD and other easily convertible currency is kept as FX (foreign exchange) because we live in a floating exchange world. (Post Nixon Gold shock the world converted to Floating Exchange Rates, which allows a lot of Monkey-shine business, like that done by Soros.)

    Russia does purchase newly mined Russian gold, and then they stuff said gold into reserve loops of Russian Central Bank. That then allows central bank to emit Rubles in fractional reserve ratio set by Basel rules. Western elite cannot say anything, because this action is fully within Basel Rules.

    The bank is coming under increasing political control, but is still staffed by atlantacists near as I can tell. Nabiullina has bent to the knee some at Putin’s request. Maybe something has changed, as Putin is now confident that representatives of the Russian state are “loyal” to Russia, and not some sort of internationalist cabal, nor are government actors allowed to be dual shitizens.

    I wold have been completely satisfied if Sergey Glazyev and Stolypin group had been elevated to becoming Russia’s economy managers. If that had happened western glob-homo might have gone even more bezerk than they already are.

    Indeed, monetary policy is an essential tool for economic management and the Russians proved it by their “economic miracle” in 1930-40 and beyond in complete isolation from international bankers.

    Economics used to be called “political economy.” Somehow it has morphed into a hard science with math proofs, e.g. the great “moderation” which couldn’t forecast the crash of 2008. When you dig into the math, you find underlying assumptions and models incorrect.

    Monetary policy has a flip side to the coin, and that is fiscal policy. Monetary and Fiscal Policy are the essential tools of economic management. You cannot divorce monetary policy from Fiscal policy, they are part of the same thing.

    Russia has not stepped harder on their accelerator because their “bank” is holding them back. Money is a demand to bearer instrument. It is demand and is payable to the bearer. By making demand, it is the same as turning up the heat on a boiler or giving more gas to an engine. Russia had inflation in sectors, but other sectors did not have enough demand. You can give more gas to an economy when you have idle people, resources, and capability. The new money finds new production. For example, Russia could have direct injected money into the east, increasing demand in that region, which in turn would increase security against Chinese encroachment.

    I give Putin slack but I am disturbed by lack of movement on the bank problem. But, I temper by reasoning: Where was Russia was in the 90’s and compare that to today. It would not do to enrage “international capital” as they have shown themselves fully capable of starting world wars. Maybe Putin is afraid of stepping on the wrong toes? Who knows, I am not an insider within Russian political circles. But this aspect of Putin’s Russia disturbs me…. fix the damn bank. Russia now has a military that can withstand attack.
    ___________
    State capitalism is simply “mixed economy” where the state involves itself in the commons and inelastic markets. In those sectors, the state is the lowest cost producer, and lowers prices. Government is the fourth factor of production in its sector. (Government raises prices when it is outside of its role.) State capitalism is very similar to industrial capitalism and American System of Economy. The state has to be present as a referee to keep rent seekers and in-group predators from preying on the weak.

    In Russia and Hungary they are now investing in “mother-hood capital,” to then prevent demographic collapse. What good is an economy if it cannot renew itself across generations. What is the price of not renewing yourself? The gift and volunteer sectors of the economy are not priced, and hence women do not see value in motherhood. It is a good thing they are calling it motherhood capital, so those who are blind and cannot see, will have a word to apply – to then have some understanding. (Language is important.)

    Lolbertarians like onebornfree-dumb, think that only prices matter, but what they don’t get is that prices lie.

    If various actors in the economy are taking rents and unearned income, somebody else is paying for that “taking” through loss of wants or higher prices. Russia’s oligarchs were “taking” rents and usury on the population in the 90’s, and Putin put a stop to much of it.

    Putin has pushed the Overton window big time, and so I’m not an enemy of the good in pursuit of perfection. Or, rather Putin stands for the very things our grandparents took for granted, and it is the world that has shifted.

    The money power formation in Russia is still non-ideal… so lets wait and see.

    I share the feelings of those who are against the state and authorities because socio-psychology told me about the tools and means by those in position of power to suppress others and profit in the process. I find the abuse of power and injustice particularly repulsive and revolting. On the other hand, I am aware that such abuse fuels the hostility of the powerless and the inevitable reaction. For instance, the Jewish blatant abuse of political power, in addition to financial power, by infiltrating most “Western” governments will in due course produce sufficient antagonism likely to produce unwanted effects as those on the historical record. That’s how revolutionaries are made too.

    But my rational self tells me that man is the most dependent social animal. His idea of self is itself social, he has no identity but for being with others, physically or mentally. Then there is man’s physical and biological needs and the practicalities of survival. Above all, alone you can do nothing or make a contribution to the liberation of man, including one little self. To bring about the end of this oppressive state of affairs we need, first of all, an organizational structure and even the most anarchic anarchist understands that. To succeed, that initial structure becomes the kernel of an incipient state and, with luck, in the fulness of time, a full-blown one.

    The man who wants to liberate himself and abscond in the back of beyond as an anchorite is a loser and a waste of space. Been there, done that, even built windmills.

    Hello there in the Land of Enchantment. You may be referring to Einstein’s Foreword to Charles Hapgood’s “The Path of the Pole,” reissued at one point as “Earth’s Shifting Crust,” in which are reconstructed several prior positions of the geographic North Pole in Hudson Bay, the Yukon, and between Norway and Iceland, all within the last 120,000 years, I think (I’d be more specific but I loaned the book out). “Earth in Upheaval,” by Immanuel Velikovsky, is still relevant today, and a great antidote to Uniformitarianist dogma, as is “Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings,” also by Hapgood, where he, his students, and others analyze the “impossible” Portolan Charts used by Spanish and Portuguese explorers. Impossible because these were copies of earlier maps that show the Antarctic coasts free of ice, utilized spherical trigonometry, and include maps of all the continents. The maps must have been made thousands of years before Columbus. But, of course, this must be nonsense, or it would be taught in public school and would surely be mentioned by St. Greta and our pal Al at the Gathering of the Wise in Davos. Cheers!

    I think President Putin is a great leader and the greatest in the world today. For many Europeans, but in particular Germans and other countries that fought the USSR in WW II, the USSR’s bloodthirsty mass murdering behavior would not be forgotten during their lifetimes, but I suspect some or many would admire Putin as a force for good in Europe and the world today. The “right wing” or “far right” parties of Europe are no more right wing than any of the ruling parties of western Europe of the 1970’s, it’s the liberal or left leaning parties of Europe that have adopted extememist positions that prioritize climate change activism and transgender rights over the well being of their countries citizens and can’t do enough do destroy the traditional family, and have overseen the deliberate soft genocide of their own peoples so that western Europe is almost unrcognizable today. Large percentages of the populations of most of these countries are from foreign countries and many are not even from Europe. This has completely changed the ethnic makeup of these countries today.

    The author wrote “Is Putin overstating Washington’s role in decimating Iraq, Libya, Syria and Afghanistan or is this a fair assessment of America’s pernicious and destabilizing role in the region? Entire civilizations have been laid to waste, millions have been killed or scattered across the region to achieve some nebulous strategic advantage or to help Israel eliminate its perceived enemies.”

    No, Putin is not overstating Washington’s deliberate destruction of these countries and at least the writer mentions the source of this destruction, even if he downplays it. He can’t even name the strategic advantage the US gained from this (because there isn’t any), but grasping for a reason for the USA’s policies there, he ignores the one staring him in the face that he does not want to mention. The US has gained no strategic advantage from these wars, the wars have put the US in huge debt and there is a good chance those wars will be a chief cause for the US going bankrupt and its currency collapsing or coming close to it eventually. Those wars benefitted only one country – Israel. And those “perceived enemies” of Israel aren’t just “perceived”. Israel, with the indispensable help of American and European Jews has become a world power and completely dominates the middle east, bullying others, assassinating people they oppose and running roughshod over everyone else, regardless of international law and Arabs and Iranians obviously don’t like it and consider the murdereous Israelis and Americans their enemies.

    Just like “The Saker” ignores the powerful influence of American and international Jewry on middle east policies, he ignores the their role on the USA’s policies towards Russia and Ukraine. Ukraine is now dominated by Jews and Russia is not and that is why Schiff, Schumer, Nadler and the US love Ukraine and hate Russia. Ukraine is drowning in “Americana”. While they were forbidden from practicing Christianity under the USSR, this once deeply religous country is drowned in American “Christmas” music in December and January, songs like “Jingle Bells”, “Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer” and all the other songs that have nothing to do with Christianity. It’s obvious this country will soon be the globalists dream, with a watered down culture primed for multiculturalism like the rest of Europe, and the average Ukrainian knows nothing of what is planned for them. While there are a few Ukrainians that see who has the power over them, when Israel’s ambassador here told the Ukrainians to take their national heroes off their list of heroes a couple of weeks ago because they fought the murderous Bolshevik Jews during WW II it’s obvious, they also know the descendants of those Bolshevik murderers now dominate their government again. But 99% of the people don’t talk about it or quietly accept it because while they were the victims of Jews before and during WW II, they know they could be accused of “anti-semitism” if they say the wrong thing.

    I’m in Ukraine right now and with a little insight these things are clear.

    Russia does purchase newly mined Russian gold, and then they stuff said gold into reserve loops of Russian Central Bank. That then allows central bank to emit Rubles in fractional reserve ratio set by Basel rules.

    Thank you Mefobills to come to the rescue. I knew I could rely on your expertise in that esoteric area of money-making.

    So, basically, the Russian Central Bank (RCB) is allowed to issue new currency when “purchasing” gold, that is, the traditional way currency-issuing was done during the gold-standard times where the money in circulation in an economy was backed by an equivalent value of tangible assets such as gold.

    However, I also have read somewhere (you or M. Hudson) that another permitted method of issuing rubles was by net inflow of US dollars from foreign trade. (I wonder whether foreign loans denominated in US dollars would also do). Anyway, the surplus value of the external balance of payments is similar to mining gold in the sense that you have to produce a commodity to bring in value (dollars). In that systems there is always a balance between the money in circulation and production. However, the only beneficiary of such policy is the US Treasury because Russia is obliged to convert its balance of trade surplus to US dollars. In my mind, it would be more beneficial to Russia if that surplus were converted to gold instead.

    The other issue that has just crossed my mind – and that brings Schacht and the Meffo Bills to the fore – is, if gold backs the currency, why not another valuable commodity, such as concrete and steel to build infrastructure or houses and other valuable assets. I know, they could not be kept in the vaults of the RCB, but they would be out there as the raw material for more production and wealth creation instead of useless symbols to balance the books. I know this is up your alley.

    I agree with the bulk of your quote, but unless things have changed rather dramatically since I was last in Ukraine (about 6 years ago), PC-ness is not one of the afflictions of Ukrainians.

    This is the country where football (soccer) stadiums erupt into monkey gestures and the pitch is strewn with bananas when a black player enters the field. And where Bandera is lionized. And, most importantly, where open and vicious hatred of the Russian language, Russian culture, Russian history and, critically, Russians (who, to hear them say it, were Mongolized, as if Ukrainians weren’t), is normalized.

    But you are right about Jews dominating the Ukraine politically and economically – they did that even before the Maidan coup, which is precisely what led up to it. Somehow the oligarchic Jews residing in Ukraine, who control virtually all, if not all, of Ukraine’s mass media, were able to stir up even greater hatred against the Ukrainians’ brothers, the Russians, than Ukrainians felt toward their real enemies, the ZioNazi Jews (a/k/a “International Jewry” and “Organized Jewry”) (though, granted, that Russian chauvinism, for which Russians refuse to apologize, also played an important role).

    A large part of the process of that was not just to always downplay, but to entirely excise, the role of Jews in Bolshevism and Stalinism, especially the Holodomor, and to not only blame those things 完全 on Russians, but on a conscious Rusisan policy of genocide against Ukrainians! Such is the diabolical evil of ZioNazi Jews! But let’s look at the undisputed facts, shall we?

    * the parts of Ukraine most devastated by the Holodomor were the Eastern regions, which had by far the highest proportion of ethnic Russian citizens (and casualties)
    * the Holodomor most heavily impacted the Western parts of Russia, where virtually all the Russians living in Ukraine resided, including Crimea (whose population was overwhelmingly Russian with very few Ukrainians), and even Belarus, and had 没有影响 in the Western, almost entirely Ukrainian, part of Ukraine.
    * the Communist who is entirely responsible for the Holodomor, Lazar Moiseyevich Kaganovich, was a Jew (who, aside from that massive genocide, was the genocidal monster responsible for the destruction of the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour). Those who helped Kaganovich were not Russians, but largely other Jews and Ukrainians.

    Yet the Jews have managed to brainwash Ukrainians into blaming exclusively the Russians for this Jewish (and, to a much lesser extent, Georgian) horror!

    Ukrainians are basically a large nation of TrumpTARDs. Somehow, somewhere, they have an idea of what is right and wrong, but they are so utterly stupid and brainwashed, they actually empower the evil trying to destroy them.

    But isn’t that the history of ZioNazism?

    What I find most surprising (and revolting) is the virulent rancour of many commenters towards the Revolutionary and WWII Russians for (and I can’t see any other plausible explanation) having deposed Tsarism and Nazism respectively and, subsequently, constructing a successful competitor to the economic orthodoxy of Capitalism. All that done from scratch within a short span of time on their own by their own efforts, a feat unequal in human history.

    How they did it? After all, Russia had long been the butt of jokes by other Europeans about its backwardness, “Asiatic” crudeness and atavistic religiosity and when news of the Japanese victory over the Russians in 1905 reached Europe they expressed openly their schadenfreude and glee for Russia’s distress in hard times, especially for “dishonouring” European arms for being defeated by an Asiatic nation. Not only that, by 1917 Russia was literally on its knees, the people starving, the soldiers at the front neglected, the countryside devastated, the German armies outside Petrograd and the Kerensky government making plans to leave the capital. Then the foreign invasions at Murmansk, Archangel, Baku, Manchuria and Vladivostok by Entente powers, Finland, Poland, US and Japan all ganged up in support of the Whites in the civil war that further devastated the countryside to the point that it ceased to function as a country without money and the economy ran on “war Communism” (the state had to provided all the basic needs to everyone). Famine ensued.

    From that disaster that Russia was, gradually emerged a nation licking its wounds and grieving its ten million plus dead (perhaps then the greatest calamity visiting a nation ever) by putting its back to the wall and rebuilding itself, on their own and facing the hostility of all the Great Powers through sanctions and blockades.

    How did they do it? Reading the reports and contemporary press (1924), plus the “Western” governments plots now with the Germans also part of the gang, everyone predicted the Soviets’ experiment – who could not run a chicken raffle, let alone a huge country – would collapse by itself and the Russian wealthy emigres in Paris were preparing their return home on the back of the Great Powers armies under the command of Gen. Hoffmann.

    How did they do it? Perhaps the answer is revealed if we ask: what is different now? And the answer is that the Russian people were building a new country from the ruins of the old for themselves. In the process they were building Socialism. For the many detractors of the USSR here, that is the greatest sin. In their view, people should work as slaves for their masters: the capitalist class, coincidentally mostly Jewish, to rub salt into the wound.

    An apt description of your protestations. What was Freud’s term … projection! Ah yes!

    the Nazi Germans didn’t ‘fight’ the Russians…they invaded Russia, with a complete plan to annihilate the entire nation

    Operation Barbarossa was a preemptive attack to ward off the planned Red Army invasion of Europe. 5 million troops on the front-lines facing Germany in 1937, while Germany had virtually no troops on the “Eastern Front” (being busy fighting France, Holland, Poland, UK, etc. at the time, while USSR was amassing endless tanks and airplanes to sustain its European takeover). Once the Red Terror Army had defeated Germany, it would have been a cake-walk to enslave all Europe to Stalin and his Red Terror Army (as Germany had defeated virtually everyone else).

    As to annihilating the entire Russian nation, there was no such plan. There was a plan to resettle some Russians from the Western portions further East – but then again, USSR also resettled lots of folks, and not just Tatars and Chechens. Indeed, a recent article right here on Unz was about the millions of Germans resettled (and murdered) by Stalin and his cronies after WW II ended.

    the USSR’s ‘murdering behavior’ is the implant in your pea size brain

    You mean your claims about Nazis and your defense of Communism is an implant of your pea size brain? I agree.

    More than 25 million Russians died in that Nazi war of aggression

    It was a war of preemption, not aggression. There was actually much more leading up to it than Stalin’s placing 5 million troops in non-defensive positions close to its border with Germany (then in the middle of Poland, lest you raise some spurious idiocy as you no doubt are wont to do) and engaging in a massive arms buildup while her people were starving – reach Hitler’s speech to the Reichstag at the commencement of Operation Barbarossa, he lays it all out.

    As to all of those deaths, the vast majority were caused by Stalin and his Jew terrorist partisans. First, they murdered mass numbers of their own troops who were trying to retreat strategically or surrender. Second, while the Red Army was retreating it’s 5 million troops it had stationed near the German frontier (minus the ones the Red Army and Germany had killed), it laid waste to everything (“scorched earth”) on the premise no food or fuel should be left for advancing Germans. But, yet, of course, this left no food or fuel to the millions of Russians Stalin left behind to fend for themselves.

    You see, the brutality of Stalin, and much more so the Jew Bolshevik savages, is unprecedented throughout history. Even the Mongols were saints by comparison. They did not leave millions of their own to die by depriving them of food and fuel. But of course that modus operandi wasn’t new – the Holodomer, arranged by the Jew Kaganovich, used similar tactics. The Bolshevik revolution itself was an exercise in mass murder and genocide by not just execution, but deprivation of food and fuel. One can detect the murderous pattern of Russian Jews quite easily here. Little wonder Hitler didn’t want them invading Europe with their Red Army lobotomized robots (of which you would no doubt be a zealous member), hmmm?

    The famine is usually blamed on collectivisation – which presumably means re-organising and moving people and equipment around, thus disrupting farming.

    No, collectivization was taking land that was in a farmer’s family for centuries, stealing it, and telling the farmer he is now a slave of the Jew overlords, and he should produce for the Jew who will take everything. Those that objected were condemned as “counter-revolutionaries” and executed.

    Suffice to say, being turned into a slave had negative repercussions on people’s willingness to work, so production plummeted. (Not even the voluntary Israeli kibbutzes survived the moral hazard of collectivism.)

    Beyond that, Stalin wanted to raise money for industrialization (to enable conquest of the world for Communism), so he sold food abroad. Literally the ((Communists)) would come to Ukrainian households and empty out the cupboards and pantries to sell for hard currency, leaving the farmers/workers with no food for the winter. On top of that, in order to raise more money for a quicker imperial subjugation of all humanity to the Jewish boot, the Chosenites forced people to grow crops the Ukrainians were not used to planting (such as cotton and beets) because they would bring more on the international markets, leading to crop failures and even less land used to produce edible crops.

    Putin has stated that attack is the best form of defence. So should he roll on westwards towards Paris and Lisbon considering NATO keeps encroaching eastward and building up bases and forces all around Russia?

    Stalin sure was good at moving large populations of ethnics around. Why complain? Wouldn’t you, and other WNs, want to do the same?

    I already wrote in my post that there was a common border, in the middle of Poland. You do remember the partition of Poland, don’t you? Go look at a Europe map of 1940.

    And look up the 1941 German-Soviet Border and Commercial Agreement, which “formally set the border between Germany and the Soviet Union between the Igorka river and the Baltic Sea”. (Yes, Germany and USSR traded up until the start of the war), and the earlier German–Soviet Frontier Treaty (which set their mutual border inside Poland).

    Astounding that you can be so utterly self-righteous, and utterly ignorant and wrong, at the same time. Comment boards, you get what you pay for, lol.

    NPleeze,

    And many of those same commenters and authors also claim that FDR was a communist, at least from ever so many comments I’ve read on UR and other similar sites. So commie FDR’s troops met commie Stalin’s troops at the Elbe after defeating Hitler and his Nazis. So again, how did Hitler’s war save the West from communism if the leader of the most powerful western ally was a communist? What the hell was FDR fighting for then?

    So, basically, the Russian Central Bank (RCB) is allowed to issue new currency when “purchasing” gold, that is, the traditional way currency-issuing was done during the gold-standard times where the money in circulation in an economy was backed by an equivalent value of tangible assets such as gold.

    You have to think in terms of double entry balance sheets, because system wide, all of the balance sheets are connected.

    Within banks are two loops. A reserve loop that is not 1:1 with the bank credit that was created at debt. By stuffing gold into the Central Bank reserve loop, allowed gold to sit as an asset (asset column of double entry ledger) while the Central Bank can issue new Rubles at some Basel ratio. I don’t know what the ratio is… sorry, but I’m guessing it is at least 10:1. So, minimally 10X Rubles can be emitted for every Ruble worth of gold dug out of the ground. The gold is also available to shore up the Ruble if there is an exchange rate hit. Russia has made itself impervious to “economic hitman tactics” from the west by using various mechanisms. The gold play I just mentioned, as well as moving toward autarky, slowly divorcing itself from dollar exposure and not being in dollarized debts to foreign actors.

    The inside loop does the above, and the outside loop of the central bank is represented by its liability column. In case of gold, the bank has gained an asset = X, while liabilities can now increase to 10X. To the central bank issuance of Rubles is a liability to the bank.

    Further down in the system, private banks may continue to emit Rubles at debt. This means that private individuals can show up to take out Ruble loans at any time, and the lower tier banks will hypothecate. This means that new debt instruments become the bank’s asset, and new rubles their liability. The mirror image from debtors point of view, is their debt instrument is a liability, while their new Rubles are an asset. The ledgers are all connected.

    Central Bank ledger connects to lower tier private bank ledgers through the reserve loop connection.
    Lower tier private banks do not emit Rubles into the commons, nor do strategic planning for the polity. That function has to be done by the Central Bank, which is why any sovereign country must have control of the money power.

    (If bad guys seize the money power – that is a separate issue from how a hierarchy operates. If you go insane that is a separate issue from how your body operates. )

    Within banks are two loops, and an economy can be roughly modeled in two loops. The finance sector, and the production sector.

    Finance creates paper and calls them assets. Paper is shoveled around onto and off of balance sheets. Paper is often swapped in unlike kinds as a form of usury. Paper can also make exponential demands of the production sector. Balance sheets will still balance, and the production sector does not get their due.

    However, I also have read somewhere (you or M. Hudson) that another permitted method of issuing rubles was by net inflow of US dollars from foreign trade.

    BIS rules allow dollar as reserve, and that means that Russian central bank can stuff dollars into its reserve loops and emit Rubles as discussed above. This is the case for all banks in the world using dollars as reserves.

    I wonder whether foreign loans denominated in US dollars would also do)

    Foreign loans denominated in a currency not yours is always a bad idea. Foreign debt means a loss of sovereignty. Any country can emit its own money to enable labor and the production system. A resource rich and intelligent population like that of Russia especially doesn’t need dollar loans. A certain group of (((people))) maintain the canard about international capital.

    Russia did debt swaps with China, where each country goes into debt with each other. This means that China has rubles to spend, and Russia has Yuans to spend. Their debt instruments are not on-sold into markets, which means they can be jubileed if they go exponential. This kind of debt is beneficial. The Ruble and Yuans emitted channel into beneficial foreign trade, where the partners can buy things each need from the other.

    Anyway, the surplus value of the external balance of payments is similar to mining gold in the sense that you have to produce a commodity to bring in value (dollars).

    You have exposed the conceit of dollars as reserve, and how foreign economies have to produce real things to grab dollars created by America’s finance sector. Dollar as reserve redounds as a negative to America’s production sector (main street not wall street). Triffins dilemma is operative.

    The other issue that has just crossed my mind – and that brings Schacht and the Meffo Bills to the fore – is, if gold backs the currency, why not another valuable commodity, such as concrete and steel to build infrastructure or houses and other valuable assets.

    By late 33 and early 34 Germany had no gold stores. The bill system was based on goods production. Before a MefoBill could be discounted (redeemed) it was examined to see if goods had already been produces. So Bills were actually good money. They were issued by a shell corporation, and channeled toward industry. The bill acted as security while the company made goods. Then the bill would be presented to a private bank for discount – to then acquire Reichsmarks. The private bank would then turn around and discount it again to the Reichsbank. Money and goods production were in alignment. This method did not create inflation, and did not need gold for new Reichsmark emission.

    The channeling aspect of the bills, meant that this money was 不能 general demand, but instead was 具体的 demand. This useful tool could be used to eliminate America’s debt and recover industry, as bills end up on a ledger in the finance system and work just fine with double entry mechanics.

    if gold backs the currency, why not another valuable commodity, such as concrete and steel to build infrastructure or houses and other valuable assets.

    Money’s primary use is as medium to allow transaction of goods, ergo it has to match goods production. Money issued from debt instruments, from a privatized finance sector is a mismatch of kinds, and hence this money type (debt money) cannot work properly. Many economists (most especially Clifford Hughes Douglas) wanted the price system (retail mostly) to feedback price flow (relates to goods), so amount of money in production economy (external to a bank’s reserve loop and wall street finance) needs could be calculated and controlled.

    External to an economy (trading flows), Keynes Bancor did match goods in transit – in alignment with your theory. Of course, Keynes was thwarted by the (((usual suspects))) at Bretton Woods.

    If RCB issued production bills (Mefo or Oefa) they would have to do it quietly like NSDAP Germany did, so international finance oligarchy of the west would never find out, otherwise Russia would come under even greater attack.

    But, I doubt Elvira Nabiullina has any imagination given she believes western neo-liberal economic orthodoxy. She has trained incompetence. Unfortunately, Putin listens to her.

    The issue with Stalin, from a ZioNazi Bolshevik perspective (ZioNazi – land of Israel for Jews only, 20 Deut. 16-18; Bolshevik – all other land subject to the Jewish boot, 20 Deut. 10-15 – read those cites, they matter), is that he purged a lot (but not enough) Jews.

    In fact the “true” Communists – the ZioNazi Bolsheviks – assisted Hitler and tried to use him as a pressure point against Stalin. Remember, from the true “Communist” perspective, Stalin “betrayed the Revolution” – because the Revolution was about Jews seizing control and Stalin was not a Jew. (Trotsky, a full Communist Jew, was supposed to succeed Lenin, but as it happened, Trotsky was unprepared for Lenin’s death and Stalin outmaneuvered him – which is the main reason the ZioNazi Bolsheviks now prefer “democracy” to totalitarianism in their lead vassal states, in a democracy it is much easier to eliminate a rival).

    Nobody in their right mind would claim that Hitler, who lost to Communism and is now a vassal to Jews, defeated Communism. Where would you come up with such a fantastical proposition?

    FDR was fighting for ZioNazi Bolshevism. Same as every US president since at least 1913, when the US coup was completed.

    Very informative comment…

    …which is why any sovereign country must have control of the money power.

    Now here’s a little story from the New Deal era…these were hard times [there was a US ‘Holodomor’ in the dirt-poor rural south and midwest [the Dust Bowl] that resulted in a population shortfall of nearly 10 million in the decade 1930 to 1940…this American famine has disappeared down the fascist rabbit hole, but one need only watch the landmark film Grapes of Wrath, or better yet read the classic John Steinbeck book, which incidentally earned a Nobel in literature…]

    Incidentally…kind of funny to see a shitload of comments here trying to understand the fake Ukrainian ‘Holodomor’…but if you asked them what an Okie is, you would get a blank stare…

    Anyway, just setting the scene here…so getting back to the subject of money power and the general welfare of the people…it is worth noting that the money system in the west is not in the hands of a government working for the people…but in the hands of a handful of outrageous parasites who have rigged up a crooked game in which the little guy’s destiny is to remain the serf he was five centuries ago…

    Now as to Parf’s question about Russia creating money for infrastructure and such things we consider as the commons…

    Naturally the parasite elite that have long since seized control over the flow of money, they aren’t the least bit interested in the commons, nor the general welfare [and thus overall HEALTH of the people…]

    Here is where it becomes necessary to BYPASS the parasite-controlled money machine and somehow create the necessary funds…and here we go right back to those hard times in the US…and acquaint ourselves with an amazingly successful solution…The Reconstruction Finance Corporation…

    The RFC was an independent agency of the US Federal Government, and fully owned and operated by the government…

    However, the Federal Reserve Board of Governors did not have enough authority to mandate policies or act independently.[translation from parasitese…the scumbags aren’t interested in the health of the people…]

    Many of the governors [doubtful, but anyway], as well as members of Congress and the public, wanted the Federal Reserve to be more active as the Great Depression began…

    Long story short, president Herbert Hoover and congress created the RFC in 1932…FDR took over and basically used this SOVEREIGN money [as opposed to private banking Ponzi Scheme] to do nothing less than build a modern America…

    This included huge infrastructure projects like rural electrification and decent, modern roads [huge swaths of the US were in a state we would describe today as a ‘developing country’…]

    Like the Federal Reserve, the RFC would loan to banks, but it was designed to serve state-chartered banks and small banks in rural areas that were not part of the Federal Reserve System.

    Another distinction was that the RFC could make loans on the basis of collateral that the Federal Reserve and other lenders would not accept.

    The program ran to 1957, by which time, a transformed America was the most prosperous and developed country on earth…with for sure the highest living standards for ordinary folks…the New Deal was also a 平方交易 for the little guy…

    Hitler for all his faults and violent tendencies towards ‘untermenschen’ had similar sentiments about a square deal for ordinary Germans…I don’t know enough about Mefobills to understand how it fit in here, but I do know that Nazi government TRIPLED corporate taxes…every worker was entitled to a new home on terms that could easily be paid off in ten years…[and that’s with ONE household earner…plus debt forgiveness of 25 percent for each child born into that house…four kids and your house is free and clear…incidentally this same idea is being implemented now in Russia as ‘maternity capital’…]

    Now to issuing money for comons projects like infrastructure in Russia…there is a so-called Stolypin group that wants to do the same thing as the RFC…raising money by bonds sold to the people and government also kicking in…this is what we may see materialize [hopefully]…

    Back to the RFC…here is an unrelated chart showing the share of national wealth by the top 0.1 percent in the US, over the last 100 years…

    We see here that by 1933 the parasites’ share of the wealth was a whopping 25 percent…by 1948 it had dropped to ten percent…not that anyone cares, but did the parasites actually lose money…?…no they most certainly did not…it’s just that the huge numbers of ordinary folks got a whole lot more prosperous…so the RELATIVE share of the parasites naturally went down…although in absolute terms their wealth just kept on increasing…

    It would seem that this is the most ordinary folks can hope for in our epoch…grow our own slice of the pie, without taking from the parasites…which would of course be much better…since with money comes political power and domination, and I think everyone would agree that pruning the money tree of the parasites would be a development that is long overdue…

    Of course we also notice that by 2013 the parasites have clawed their way back to where we were a hundred years ago…

    From 1933-1939, 45 000 infrastructure projects were built.

    The many “local” projects were governed, like China’s Belt and Road Initiative today, under a “grand design” which FDR termed the “Four Quarters” featuring zones of megaprojects such as the Tennessee Valley Authority area in the south east, the Columbia River Treaty zone on the northwest, the St Laurence Seaway zone on the North east, and Hoover Dam/Colorado zone on the Southwest.

    These projects were transformative in ways money could never measure as the Tennessee area’s literacy rose from 20% in 1932 to 80% in 1950, and racist backwater holes of the south became the bedrock for America’s aerospace industry due to the abundant and cheap hydropower.

    Almost all of Europe west of Russia is now in NATO and they are being no less hostile to Russia than the Soviets were to Hitler’s Germany. NATO is stationing all these troops along Russia’s border and constantly issuing belligerent threats and anti-Russian propaganda; when Putin talks about Western “partners” they talk of Russia as a rival and an enemy. The Ukraine has become like a kind of new Poland, split by the West and Russia but by proxies this time instead of by direct occupation. Then look at all the US bases in the Far East, in Japan and Korea, and also in the Middle East. Now what would Hitler have done in such a position, surrounded on all sides by hostile enemies? But we already know. Russia still seems to prefer diplomacy.

    Thanks FB, I will check out Ehret’s archive. I am unfamiliar with him, and like the surprise.

    With regards to RFC, that was a shell corporation devised to inject credit into the commons and build up real production capability.

    Think about the leverage of electrifying farms, so farmers could work into the night, and have electrical horsepower, rather than human/animal labor power.

    The leverage is enormous… this is why I suggest Nikolai Tesla as the most important human who has ever lived.

    Back to shell corporations: Metallurgische Forschungsgesellschaft (Metallurgical Research Corporation )issued MEFOBILLS. A corporation issued the bills initially and they aimed at industry.

    The bill eventually found Reichsmarks issued directly from Reichsbank. To a large degree, Germany’s bill system is what funded the improvement of industry and the commons.

    In other words, Hitler was even more successful than Roosevelt at circumventing international bankster elite. Germany was further along the path of sovereignty than was America.

    It was actually some Zionists in Roosevelt’s orbit that were on board with RFC. I would call it a case of emergency triage, as finance plutocratic class know when their goose is about to be cooked, and the U.S. was in serious trouble. Also, if new money is issued in the form of debt, bonds, or direct issuance from RFC it helped pay for “old debts” that plutocrats held.

    Strangely enough, there is evidence that during the war, U.S. issued new credit directly into industry from line item budgets not backed by taxes. The whole making money on double entry ledgers was bypassed, and Treasury simply issued instructions to industry and they would be paid. It was debt free money that channeled into industry, and later paid down private debts.

    Line item money flowed into things like North American Aviation, New Synthetic Rubber Manufacture, and Aluminum Smelting. These new companies were then sold to American people for \$1, as a permanent inheritance (public owned companies).

    During war time a lot of BS about money is dispensed with and reality comes to the fore. Do or die. The same thing happened in the first American colonies, as they had to grapple with survival and fancy but wrong theories went into the trash can.

    Your blinding rage against Jewry (which is somehow understandable) puts the blinders on your capacity to understand other issues. If you don’t control it, it becomes an autistic dark tunnel funnelling your energies into a black hole for no purpose.

    Still, you can distinguish between Communism and what you label ” ZioNaziBolshevism” (not and apt description because there were as many Jews in the Bolshevik faction as in the anti-Bolshevik ones). However, that is a very complex issue for discussion on a commenters thread and leads nowhere other than name-calling.

    I don’t mean to be patronizing and apologize if I give that impression, it is just a style of writing. Context usually explains the riddles of the historical narrative and the many contradictory interpretations.

    As you hint, Communism is not a monolithic ideology: there are many, and sometimes divergent, versions, the common tenet being the public ownership of the means of production with the ultimate aim of liberating people from the present type of slavery (wage slavery) imposed on all workers by the capitalist masters who turn man’s labour into corporate profits. As Stalin said: “There are two types of Marxism: dogmatic Marxism and creative Marxism. I am a creative one”; which I understand from another of his dicta, “Communism is what we create” to mean: “it is work in progress”, not an inflexible doctrine to fit all sizes and shapes.

    With all its faults and warts (and its inglorious end at the hands of inside traitors) the USSR proved it can be done. And that is unforgivable and why the Jewish think-tanks such as the Frankfurt School have decades ago start chipping away at Marxism and turn it into a docile household pet for capitalist entertainment.

    There is a major difference. First, USSR was much larger than Germany – in terms of population, natural resources, and armed forces. In 1941, USSR was getting stronger daily, while Germany was battling UK, France and others and getting weaker. Second, it was pretty clear USSR would invade Germany, whereas I very much doubt the US will invade Russia. Finally, Russia has nukes, whereas Germany did not.

    Thus, I think if Hitler ruled Russia now, he would be not react any differently from Putin. Putin is rebuilding his military and getting stronger while the US is weakening – the exact reverse of the 1941 Germany/USSR paradigm.

    Thanks Meef…agree 100 percent…and have been somewhat frustrated to date that they haven’t gained more traction…they always seem to be on the shelf, doing nothing…

    In other words, Hitler was even more successful than Roosevelt at circumventing international bankster elite. Germany was further along the path of sovereignty than was America.

    That would not shock me…my own view is that a strong leader [call him a dictator if you will] gets things done…

    The US political system is lot of milquetoast men compared to men of action like Uncle Joe…

    Hitler too…those were some big boys as we say down on the farm…

    I do acknowledge that Hitler was a man of the people…there is a reason that the German Volk loved him…my dad was stationed in West Germany in the sixties and I spent nearly three years there [grades one through three]…I remember to this day an old woman Frau Konopka who would let me play in a rusting old Volkswagen in her yard [that thing would probably be worth a small fortune now… LOL…considering it was one of the originals from the ’30s…]

    Anyway…she would sing little Hitler diddies to her granddaughter and make the Sieg Heil salute…of course I didn’t know who this ‘great man’ Hitler was at the time and asked a lot of curious questions…the way she adoringly described this monster still sticks in my memory as if it was an hour ago…

    Thanks for all the great technical explanations…very rich information there that leads to understanding important mechanisms of the difficult to fathom money world [for the layman at least…]

    这里是 链接 to that Ehret piece that I forgot to put in…but you may not like everything he says…he is very tough on the finance gangsters of course, plus scumbags like Churchill and his henchmen who turned Bretton Woods into something totally different than what FDR had envisaged…

    He is tough on the Nazis…I have no love lost for them either…[had my dad seen Frau Konopka’s little Hitler tributes he probably would have spit on her..LOL]

    Bottom line…the entire issue of money sovereignty is 很重要 to understand in our time…and why this conversation is so necessary…

    FB,

    It is good to follow Mr. Miyagi’s dictum… have balance in all things.

    Roosevelt was good and bad, Hitler good and bad, and Stalin good and bad.

    I follow the money wherever it leads, so that maybe gives me some insight, and hence I can resist authors like Ehret, with no problem. They don’t make me mad. Virtually all people have some sort of narrative in their mind that helps them make sense of the world. This narrative is inculcated at birth onwards, and is dependent on environment.

    One of my intents is to put spectacles on peoples noses, so they can follow facts and use logic. This world is filled with so much hypnosis that even rational people are becoming un-moored. The environment is upside down, and outside of the logos, so people are flailing around trying to understand and make sense of things.

    Roosevelt was bad for laying traps for the Japanese and maneuvering the U.S. into war. Roosevelt good for operating the new deal.

    Hitler good for rescuing his people from a form of slavery. Hitler bad for thinking Slav’s were untermenschen (which they aren’t of course) and being a dupe and turning outward toward war.

    Stalin good for morphing bolshevism (international capital) into national communism. We can see now that this form of communism protected Eastern Europe and Russia. Stalin bad for some pretty brutal tactics that were excessive and unnecessary.

    Stalin killed Trotsky and then nationalized the wall street bank. Said bank was looting the Russian people.

    When you dig into the money power, then the “main spring” of history becomes obvious.

    And I can say without any reservation or doubt, our (((friends))) do operate the usury mechanism as inputs of stolen “energy” their tribe uses to power their operations, as a form of evolutionary method.

    Ironically enough, all three men were fighting the usurers in the own way, but could not find common cause.

    Well said Meef…

    Ehret seems to be an acolyte of Lyndon Larouche, often pointing to his work…poor guy, they really tarred and feathered that man…

    Of course two people will never agree on everything, much less three people etc…

    Now I grew up in a Jewish neighborhood [in an insane family of evangelical zealots, at least on mother’s side…dad just went along with the motions, but told me often he didn’t believe in any god and the whole religion thing was nonsense…he was just going along to keep peace in the house…there is no getting through to bible thumpers…one of the big reasons the US is fucked up…]

    I’ll tell you…there are good and bad folks among all peoples [except bible thumpers, who are uniformly retarded]…I really don’t like the historical revisionism where the Jewish genocide is denied…growing up among Jews I find them a decent people…they tend to be quite warm and embrace new friendships quickly…

    To tell you the truth, my experiences with Arab taxi drivers [I take a lot of cabs on my travels] reveals that many of them are shiftless and quite donkey-headed…not long ago I got a Palestinian driver…middle age guy from Jerusalem…I asked how 古德斯 is pronounced, the Arab name for Jerusalem…[hoods or koods]…?

    Well, either this guy was the absolute stupidest man on earth or he was being deliberately an asshole…finally [after about ten minutes of playing a complete idiot] I asked, so how do you say Jerusalem in Arabic…’khoods’ he says…

    Now I really wanted to take this guy and shake some fucking decency into him…but of course I left it simply asking how any normal person could pull the spiel he had just done…incredible…

    So I’ll tell you…compared to the Jewish folks I grew up with…a lot of Arabs I have run into, I would not want to be friends with…for what that’s worth…certainly not a scientific sample or anything like that…

    At the same time, it gets my blood boiling how the Einsatzjuden mow down innocent children and women, and then try to blame the victim…

    Anyway…there is too much ‘Jewish Question’ on this website…it’s twenty four seven…far better to attack any of today’s important issues from a different vector…

    This begs the question, “What narrative, or software are Arab minds operating with?” How about Jewish minds?

    It can be demonstrated conclusively that the (((tribe))) operates the usury mechanism. This is a form theft from the production of populations, and the theft usually manifests itself as raised prices, and transfers of wealth to a Jewish finance plutocracy. Humanity cannot reach its destiny if it is dragged down by parasitism.

    People here at Unz review are absolutely correct to identify the Jew as Mammon’s spear tip.

    It is also correct to acknowledge there are good and bad jews, and good ones are operating 尽管 Talmudic injunction, not because of it.

    If you are an advanced human, then you would want to protect innocent jews further down in their tribal hierarchy, many of whom are ignorant of machinations of Jewish predatory leadership, and are confused and fearful about the world; Innocent honorable Jews are afraid that others will become enraged and harm them; hence their fear of anti-semitism.

    In other words it is consistent to have feelings for your Jewish friends while also being aware that they may not be as advanced as you.

    My definition of anti-semites, is that they are educated people. People are not born as anti-semites, it is a learned position, and moral people are outraged by theft, usury, the taking of rents, and putting populations into debt slavery.

    Arab anti-Semites, typically low IQ people who are programmed with Islamic narrative, are knee-jerk ideologues, who operate based on what their Imam tells them. These type of people are irrational, which is why you won’t find me as an Islamic apologist.

    Talmudic Judaism has a similar type of deception coded into its doctrine, which makes Jews malfunction.

    Christianity, especially Judaizer Christianity has deception coded into its doctrine.

    Many UNZ commentators are having emotional out-bursts because they cannot articulate what they are feeling. Their out-bursts cannot be dismissed as the ravings of lunatics, most of them are rational. The Unz commentators are not to be conflated with low IQ Arabs. Apples and Oranges.

    Ron Unz, who is a Jew, operates from a moral and rational standpoint, and hence is one of the bravest people on the planet, and has put himself in harms way. The usurers at the top of Jewish hierarchy are not people to be trifled with.

  189. 迈克·惠特尼,

    I think you did a great job on this article! I have been reading all the comments and some folks agree and some don’t. But it wouldn’t be the Unz Review if it was any different (IQ has nothing to do with it, it´s where your heart is that counts). Anyway, I wanted to ask you if it would be OK to translate your article into Spanish so I can post on my Facebook and try to get a couple copies out in the hopes of reaching someone in the Mexican government.

    Im not sure if you have been keeping an eye on the new Mexican President, (Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, AMLO) and how he is making drastic changes, moving away from the corrupt neoliberal policies of the previous 5 administrations. His party (MORENA) won enough seats in both Houses so he has the power to change most of the previous administrations policies called ¨Reforms¨. Energy Reform was the deliberate sacking of our state owned Energy Companies (PEMEX, CFE Electric Utility) with the intention of selling them off to private companies. Healthcare Reform sell off government owned hospitals, clinics and pharmacies. Education Reform was going to allow private companies to run the state owned education system. Those are just 3 of the corrupt deals the previous administrations were working on.

    I have plenty of information that details the past 30 years of corruption by the previous presidents. If you are interested, I can share whatever information I have with you. If its in Spanish I will translate them for you. AMLO has been invited to Russia for the May Military parade and I think your article would make for good reading before his trip since a lot of what you wrote, Mexico is currently implementing, such as Free Healthcare and Medication for everyone, Free Grants to Universities, Free Technical Training, Government Subsidized Farming, New Massive Construction Projects, etc. Basically taking the money out of the rich corporations and putting it where it belongs, in the hands of the less fortunate.

    Thank you Sir, With Love From Beautiful Mexico…J.G.

    P.S. Keep an eye on the Genaro Garcia Luna case currently being heard in New York…He had ties with Bush Jr., Clinton and Obama. He worked for the Fox, Calderon and Peña Nieto administrations. We might see a president from either side of the creek go to jail. Who knows maybe just wishful thinking on my part and Trump! LOL

  190. FB,

    My own personal experiences with Jews and Arabs confirm what you say. Palestinians, especially, can be quite obnoxious and untrustworthy, and most other Arabs dislike them too, but they explain that is because of their long term refugee status and all their suffering (PTSD) at the hands of the Israelis which has turned them into real desperadoes even when they are not in a desperate situation, and tend to give them some leeway. Some of the vilest people I’ve known have been Palestinians, unfortunately, but fortunately they’re not all that bad.

    I definitely wouldn’t have become an “anti-Jew” based on personal experiences but only as a result of further study – my God, who else said that!?

    You may have missed the key point of Mr. Putin’s plan: to enhance the sovereignty of the “people”, notably via their “deputies”, while correspondingly weakening the power of the president in the internal affairs.

    The two last Russian czars of the Romanov dynasty were also advised by their “progressive” advisers, that such thing was the right thing to do. Both were handily disposed of soon after with a bullet to the head. The shamans were likewise expunged, and their grand-vision invalidated by the diaarticulated Katzenjammer of the “free” that followed.

    Meef, I can’t say I agree with much of that…especially that people with anti-Jew feelings are somehow more advanced…

    Ron Unz is a physicist who is playing silly little games here…history lives in the past by definition…

    If you are an idiot and you go and drop your life savings at a casino…what is to be done by dwelling on it…?

    I don’t like the Nazi and Hitler fanboys either…I’m sorry but I was raised differently in an honorable family that held their head high wherever they went…falling in love with maniacs like Hitler and constantly spouting anti-Jew vitriol is not part of that heritage, nor the character that goes with it…

    I notice among the revisionists here a distinct lack of the qualities that make a human strong and successful…believe me I know…I don’t need to deal with losers in my everyday life…

    I don’t think there is anything special about Jew parasites compared to others…and that they are the tip of the spear…I just don’t see it…I mentioned on another thread the massive criminality of the defense industry, which is a WASP bastion with practically no Jewish involvement…

    Some twerp suggested that because of Israel being a top client of this ‘defense’ sector that they are also poisoning the well…yeah, no…sorry…I know much better than that…

    The world of so-called finance I know nothing about…except they are parasites who should be wiped off the pages of history, as per Uncle Joe in Russia…

    As for Mr Unz, one dorky Zionist here described him as ‘not quite sane’…now coming from this particular dork, that doesn’t really mean much…but I see little to like in what this man is doing…he is a stubborn ideologue, which is never a good idea [flexibility is important]…

    I also don’t care for the fact that he is constantly attacking his own people, while siding with nutcases that worship Hitler…this is not a good character trait…you dance with the one that brung ya…

    He has written some decent articles [when he sticks more to sharp focus and brevity]…but I see egregious errors and deviations from indisputable historical facts in his stuff so often that it really can’t be taken seriously…

    Now I do appreciate the methodical way he dissects a particular issue…I just wish it wouldn’t be about Jews all the time…for me his best work was on Kennedy…clearly he is gifted with good intelligence and discernment, so there is nothing to stop him from advancing to a respectable position in historiography…instead of his little personality cult made up of people cut from very weak cloth…

    Hitler good for rescuing his people from a form of slavery. Hitler bad for thinking Slav’s were untermenschen (which they aren’t of course) and being a dupe and turning outward toward war.

    Hitler was a German nationalist – 100% for the betterment of ethnic Germans, as proved by his writing, conversations and policies (e.g. T.T.127 “Every reasonably conducted organization is bound to favour the development of beings of worth. It has been my wish that educative organizations of the Party should enable the poorest child to lay claim to the highest functions if he has enough talent. The Party must see to it on the other hand, that society is not compartmentalized, …. It’s essential that a balance should be struck, in such a way that dyed-in-the-wool Conservatives may be abolished as well as Jewish and Bolshevik anarchists.”).

    Hitler’s dynamism was surely linked to his belief in German racial superiority. He had the formative experience of Jewish dominated (failed) multicultural pre WW1 Vienna, and, in his mind, the British Empire (something for Germans to emulate) was the natural consequence of British racial pre-eminence.

    From this POV Hitler’s variety of National Socialism carried a high potential within it for war/Imperialism especially since his future Eastern Empire already included enclaves of sympathetic German settlers and traders (same as regions that became the future British Empire with regard to British settlers).

    Stalin good for morphing bolshevism (international capital) into national communism. We can see now that this form of communism protected Eastern Europe and Russia. Stalin bad for some pretty brutal tactics that were excessive and unnecessary.

    The more you read about Stalin, the more you find an intelligent gangster – totally unethical and committed to developing his personal power. He may have appeared to be a Russian nationalist after 1938 ( his Show Trials and liquidating the old Bolsheviks), but the more likely explanation, is that he saw war coming. He knew that Russia had to be unified for its (and his) survival, with the unifying force being Russian ethnic nationalism rather than Bolshevik Jewish internationalism.

    Secondly, for those who know nothing about the science of global warming, the East Siberian Arctic Shelf is the shallowest shelf in terms of methane clathrates. The amount of atmospheric methane offgassing from the methane clathrates in this particular shelf is at times in the 2000ppb figure and higher. This is an alarming increase in just about a decade. A Russian scientist has himself stated it produces more methane than from commercial sources. Try googling this subject yourself and learning more about it from Siberian Times, TASS or Moscow News. Every year Russian academic ships go with international expeditions led by Russian scientists to study the growing number of methane plumes in the Laptev Sea. Methane warms the atmosphere 85X higher than CO2. The last time I knew, Russians still lived in on planet earth. The portion called the Russian Federaion will not be exempt from the planetary reset and ensuing chaos of our climate described in full detail by published Russian scientists that is leading to extreme weather events such as intense heat followed by intense flooding rain. For every 1C the Earth’s temperature rises there is 7% more moisture in the atmosphere. Yet in summer this moisture evaporates from intense heat and severe droughts ensue. This affects soil, will cause crop failure and unstable climate can bring both floods and hail storms making it impossible to grow crops, even in Russia.

    Regarding land flooded by melting permafrost in Siberia, here’s an article on the cost of the melting permafrost in Northern Siberia to infrastructure, housing, agriculture land and reindeer herding.
    https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1748-9326/aaf5e6/pdf

    “For the 5.4 million people who live in Russia’s permafrost zone, the new climate has disrupted their homes and their livelihoods. Rivers are rising and running faster, and entire neighborhoods are falling into them. Arable land for farming has plummeted by more than half, to just 120,000 acres in 2017. ” Read further here.

    People, especially politicians can morph and change. By 1944 Stalin was enemy number one by Trotyskyites. Bolsheviks = International Capital = Zionism.

    Stalin was the darling of finance Jews in 38, but by 1944 their opinion had changed. Why? Because Stalin changed international communism/bolshevism to national communism to unify for the war effort as you suggest. Who is going to fight for the “international man, especially the international jew?” It was motherhood Russia that motivated the Russian peasants.

    Stalin continued the policy of National Communism after the war. One could even argue that the Russian center was depleted to support periphery Warsaw pact countries like Poland, Hungary, and Cuba.

    If there is a brotherhood of man, then why was the Communism of Mao at odds with Stalin’s Russia?

    Nations are containers for tribes, to protect the people within.

    Hitler’s dynamism was surely linked to his belief in German racial superiority. He had the formative experience of Jewish dominated (failed) multicultural pre WW1 Vienna, and, in his mind, the British Empire (something for Germans to emulate) was the natural consequence of British racial pre-eminence.

    Tedore makes a different case or at least goes into the background of racial hygiene. Contrary to what many people think, NSDAP German’s were operating from a long history of observation about racial differences, and what constitutes being German.

    ___excerpt from link below______________
    What constitutes “racially foreign elements” was a matter of controversy within the NSDAP. Various ethnic groups comprise European civilization: Nordic, Gallic, Basque, Slavic, Baltic, Mediterranean and so forth. Pioneer racial hygienists maintained that intermarriage among diverse white clans produces a superior being. In 1924, the analyst Hildebrandt published an essay explaining, “The highest standard of living evolved where the Nordic race represented the leadership, but intermixed with others who adopted its culture.” Hans Günther wrote, “The French anatomist and race researcher de Quatresages observed in 1857 that the greatest mental and physical activity rests not among those of pure race, but among racially cross-bred populations

    Good point about India. The Western press seems bent on demonizing Modi as some kind of Indian Hitler, mostly for his quite reasonable law excluding Muslims from the religions minority refugees in neighboring countries that should be fast-tracked asylum. Nothing wrong with that, as Muslims are most likely to oppress religious minorities themselves, and the last thing India needing is more Muslims. Eventually the demonizing could drive India into the arms of the Russia-China-Iran axis.

    Bolshevik Jewish internationalism.

    Communism has nothing at all to do with Judaism or any other religion…

    The Bolsheviks were Marxists, that was their religion…that era in history was rife with gross class inequality and human misery…especially in Tsarist Russia…but even in Britain and Germany the common folk were exploited and used horribly, something that no human should be subjected to…if we are to embrace the immutable principles of fairness and morality…

    The Bolsheviks’ ‘internationalism’ was driven by that Marxist ethic, which is still valid today and increasingly something our present civilization needs badly…

    Today we have people like prof Richard Wolff who are carrying on that eternal struggle for social justice…he is Jewish…does that make him some kind of subversive Judeo-internationalist…that would be so far from the truth as to be worthy only of the scrap heap…he is a very good man who hews tightly to those ideals of fairness for all men…

    So here on this website Mr Unz and his acolytes have spawned and are pushing this nonsense about Judeo-Bolshevism…a completely laughable canard that is not rooted in any reality…

    What Uncle Joe did was clean the Augean Stables in Bolshevik Russia…something that requires a firm hand…you call him a gangster…for what, because he erased the fucking parasite class…?

    Good for you then if you are unable to read history with a functioning sense of discernment between reality and your own little hobby horse…

    A lot of the Bolsheviks surrounding Lenin were incompetent and unreliable and generally not advancing toward the goal of forging a strong and modern Russia…in fact they were only doing the opposite…we can say the same thing about today’s USA…is anyone in that ludicrous Sodom on the Potomac doing anything to make the US a strong and modern country…?

    Yes, I say modern, because large swaths of the US consists of people living in third world conditions…

    If someone came along with a clear-eyed vision of fixing this mess, how many do you think would need to be liquidated…how long would it take to root out all these parasites…?

    You quote Shitler saying exactly a socialist and Marxist ideal about opportunity for children of modest or even desperate means…but you conveniently overlook that Uncle Joe actually built such a society…

    Russia went from a war devastated country the likes of which the world had never seen, to putting a man into orbit within a short 15 years…where did that talent and capability come from…it was there all along, but all those children with gifts were never given a chance…

    Btw I will say here that the early Russian rockets were an order of magnitude more capable than those of the US…even though both countries built on the German foundation with the V2 [as well as their captured scientists]…but the Russians zoomed ahead, while the US basically remained at the level of the V2…I could go into a comparison of the two countries’ early space programs and the US comes out looking like a midget…but I won’t get into those technicalities now…

    The point is that both countries began at the same starting line…but the Russian scientific capabilities [thanks to Uncle Joe’s brilliant management of the country’s resources, both human and physical] just roared ahead [an amazing accomplishment if you know enough about the technicalities to understand and appreciate it]…

    That is a perfect case study of how socialism is superior in the march of human progress…but to achieve socialism is not easy…there will be resistors that will put up all kinds of hurdles and hindrances…really the best option is to eliminate such types, for the good of society overall…

    Hitler had the same idea, but he was more emotional than rational…liquidating invalids and such…a guy in a wheelchair can still make a massive contribution…see Stephen Hawking…Shitler would have eliminated this guy, based on his irrational way of thinking…

    Hitler does not measure up to Uncle Joe in any way…so there is no point in lionizing the odd chestnut that he comes up with…even a blind pig will find an acorn from time to time…

    And what exactly about ‘free’ markets and capitalism in general produces the result where a ruling elite fails to grab all the goodies [leaving nothing fore everyone else…]

    And what exactly is wrong with ‘top-down’…?

    Someone has to be in charge do they not…do you run your household without any top-down management when it comes to your children…?

    How about the military…do you think they could defend your country if there was no top-down organization…why not just let every soldier simply answer to his own self and dispense with the chain of command…?

    Top-down works very well in important projects like the advancement of science…which is central to human progress in general…

    This area is my neck of the woods, so I will just give a couple of illustrative examples…let’s begin by asking why the US has not been a spacefaring nation for a decade now…?

    Isn’t the private sector better…and so how is farming out the space program to Conman Musk, King Bezos, Boeing and other free market entities working out…?

    The Shuttle program was likewise farmed out to major corporate contractors…the result was two in-flight breakups [the only time that has ever happened in human spaceflight] and the loss of fourteen astronauts…plus the premature retirement of the entire program because it had become clear that this vehicle just wasn’t working…and with no replacement in place the result is that the US is no longer a spacefaring nation…

    You can thank your brilliant capitalist system for a job well done…

    Before that we had the massive Apollo program, which top-down and designed, built and operated by government employees, managed by a government plan…and that top-down approach resulted in monumental success…

    And what about corporations, should they abandon the top-down organizational system and just let everyone do his thing…?

    Corporations are all central planned…planning is essential to any serious undertaking in every field of endeavor…

    What about urban planning…how do you think our cities would look if we just let builders run wild…just let anyone build anything wherever they want…no need to worry about sanitary services or utilities…the magic free market will take care of that all by itself…

    So no, there is no reason to believe that some kind of hands-off approach to our civilization would be anything but catastrophic…that is just grade-school silliness…we have a very complex society today that needs to be well managed, by people with the capabilities to do that…

    From your postings here, my impression is that you are an individual who is easily swayed, and not able to think for himself…there are many like that…the reason is that our ruling elite runs an incredible cradle to grave indoctrination program…they want you to embrace ideas about society and its organization that are beneficial only to them…while at the same time harmful to the ordinary folks that they indoctrinate…

    The result is that these folks are basically cutting their own throats…marching merrily into the slaughterhouse…

    You can thank your brilliant capitalist system for a job well done…

    Wonder if you might have any thoughts on Ayn Rand, darling of Wall St.?

    I do indeed…thanks for asking…

    However I won’t share those thoughts here…instead I will simply tell a factual story that some here might find useful…I will not opinionate or editorialize…

    The story starts with a little girl named Marion Parker…[October 11, 1915 – December 17, 1927]

    [更多]

    She was the daughter of a prominent banker in Los Angeles and had a twin sister named Marjorie…her life lasted only 12 short years…on a December day in 1927, Marion was abducted from her school and later killed by William Edward Hickman, a 19 year old…

    Hickman tricked a school official into letting Marion go with him, posing sincerely as an employee of Mr Parker’s bank…the school official later said…

    [I] never would have let Marion go but for the apparent sincerity and disarming manner of the man.

    After kidnapping little Marion, Hickman demanded a 1,500 dollar ransom from her father, equivalent to about twenty thousand in today’s dollars…

    At the arranged meeting to make the exchange, Mr Parker was able to see Marion sitting next to Hickman in his car, from something of a distance…Hickman walked over to Parker and took the money…when he got back in his car he pushed Marion’s lifeless body out of the door and drove off…

    The coroner later testified that she had been dead for about 12 hours. Her arms and legs had been cut off, and she had been disemboweled and stuffed with rags. Her eyes were being held open by wires.

    Hickman later said that he had strangled her and cut her throat first, but he believed that she was still alive when he began to dismember her. Her arms and legs were found on December 18 in Elysian Park, wrapped in newspaper.

    He was quickly caught by police and executed the following year, after a trial which was covered for a newspaper by the Tarzan author Edgar Rice Burroughs…

    William Edward Hickman sans necktie at his court hearing

    One year prior to the unimaginable murder and mutilation of little Marion, a 22 year-old Russian woman named Alisa Zinovyevna Rosenbaum left the Soviet Union and arrived in America…settling in Los Angeles…a year after the murder of little Marion, Rosenbaum started scribbling diary notes in her new language…

    …a story she called The Little Street. Its protagonist, Danny Renahan, is modeled on a real-life Los Angeles murderer, 19-year-old William Hickman…

    –Time magazine, 2015

    The writer, Rosenbaum, had changed her name to Ayn Rand…

    In her notebooks, Rand makes a hero of both Hickman and the fictional Renahan, who murders a church pastor instead of a child, and extols the killers’ beautiful souls, which rise and set without a trace of ‘social instinct or herd feeling.’

    She describes Hickman as ‘a brilliant, unusual, exceptional boy’…and writes of the murderer…

    A strong man can eventually trample society under his feet …That boy was not strong enough.

    Time magazine writes…

    In the end, Rand’s hero, like her most famous protagonists to come, is condemned to judgment by ‘fat, shabbily dressed,’ homely, insignificant, snickering, ‘boot-licking’ onlookers and jurors, members of ‘the little street’ and of ‘the human herds … who have but one aim: to ruin all individuals and individuality.’

    These squalid American types, based in part on Rand’s reading of Nietzsche and Sinclair Lewis and in larger part on a Russian-Jewish horror of social and political majorities of any kind, filled her novels and essays until her death.

    Rand went on to write two immensely and timelessly popular novels about rock-ribbed capitalist-individualist heroes who strong enough…

    “Morality is the herd-instinct in the individual.” Friedrich Nietzsche

    Thanks so much for sharing the Marion Parker story. It is more than useful. It’s ground-shaking. My only reaction to it is a visceral, “Wow!”

    Rand is quoted as saying of Hickman, he possessed “the innate psychology of the superman.” She especially appreciated his ability to detach himself from any feelings for his fellow human beings. Lack of empathy is a marked trait of the psychopath. Such pathology is seen not only in him, but sometimes in the state (or should I say the Deep State). If Rand were the guest on the “Dating Game,” and the three eligible bachelors included Dick Cheney, I imagine she would choose him as the ideal man.

    John Oliver offers a good Randian profile…

    FB,

    Amazing what vile psychopaths and sociopaths become celebrities in American culture. Thankfully I never read her work and now don’t intend to, although coming across so much praise of her I did start to wonder if I missed anything and aught to brush up. Nah, there’s many other books I could pick instead, but then I suppose she could be useful in understanding the modern American intellectual mindset, seeing she was so influential.

    “11,000 Scientists Warn of ‘Untold Suffering’ From Climate Change. Only 4 of Them Are Russian.
    The Moscow Times spoke to one of the Russian scientists about his reasons for signing the open letter and his fears for the future.”

    =

    Professor Alexei Kotov greets his colleagues as he navigates the poorly-lit corridors of the Institute of Ecology and Evolution in the south of Moscow, where he has been a leading researcher and member of the Russian Academy of Sciences since Soviet times.

    “This whole street was built during the Stalinist period, and I don’t think anyone has renovated our building since then. We try to spend our whole budget on research,” he says.

    Kotov, 54, was one of 11,000 scientists from 153 countries who signed an open letter Tuesday declaring a global climate emergency. The warning of “untold suffering” as a consequence of climate change made headlines around the world and called for urgent changes. These included curbing population growth, leaving fossil fuels in the ground, halting forest destruction and drastically cutting meat consumption.

    But while Russia is the world’s fourth-largest emitter of greenhouse gases, just four of the letter’s signatories were Russian.

    Russian authorities have forecast that climate change will bring epidemics, drought and mass hunger if left unchecked. This summer, the country experienced a series of large-scale floods and forest fires scientists believe to be directly linked to climate change.

    The general population remains unconvinced.

    Research has shown that less than half of Russians — 43% — believe climate change poses a major threat. In Germany, that number is 72% while 90% of Greeks believe climate change danger is imminent.

    Kotov “didn’t think twice” when he received the letter from his foreign peers in an email.

    “It is absolutely clear this is a crisis. Fires, floods, our permafrost is melting … It is a nightmare for Russia.”

    Kotov said he is most worried about Russia’s Arctic regions, which the Environment Ministry has said are warming at a faster rate than the rest of the world.

    Just this week, Russia’s meteorological service Roshydromet said the Arctic archipelagos of Franz Josef Land and Severnaya Zemlya had experienced the warmest October on record, with average temperatures on the islands 8 degrees Celsius higher than normal.

    “The ecosystem there is so vulnerable,” Kotov said.”snip

    =

    While Russia has recently seen a wave of ecology-inspired protests across the country, Kotov said the problem is that people are still struggling to make the connection between their direct environmental concerns and global climate change.
    Climate strike movements

    Russians have been largely absent from global climate strike movements, including Extinction Rebellion and FridaysForFuture, protests that have prompted millions of people to take to the streets.

    “I am not asking for a movement like the one started by the girl in Europe,” he said, referring to 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg. “But it would be good if we could see the bigger picture.”

    In September, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Russia would implement the 2015 Paris Agreement to fight climate change. With the ratification, Russia also drafted a set of laws that aimed at reducing its global footprint.

    However, it soon became clear that the government had watered down the new package of climate change legislation to a huge degree after push-back from the country’s leading businesses.

    “I don’t think we should be surprised that many of the laws that were proposed won’t happen,” Kotov said. “The problem is that many at the top see climate change as a business opportunity.”

    He specified melting ice caps that are opening up the Arctic Northern Sea Route, which experts believe could be beneficial for Russian trade.

    Despite his skepticism about the business community, Kotov was quick to defend Russia’s science community when asked why so few Russians had signed the letter.

    “To be honest, I think many more of our scientists would have signed the letter if they had known about it. Maybe it’s a reflection of the political realities,” he said, adding that both Russia and the West are to blame for the poor cooperation between climate experts.

    A precedent for the setting of barriers between Russian and international scientists was set last August, when a senior member of the Russian Academy of Sciences complained that the authorities had recommended scientists avoid communicating with their foreign colleagues.

    Kotov’s words were echoed by Russia’s veteran climate scientist Sergei Zimov, who told The Moscow Times he would “definitely” have signed the letter if he had been made aware of it.

    Kotov is pessimistic about the future, saying he fears the worldwide interest the open letter has sparked might have come too late.

    “My 8-year-old daughter will never know what a real Russian winter is,” he said.”

    Yep, Washington compost at work.
    Yakutia: largest Russian federated district, formally Sakha Republic.
    Population: 962,000 as of 2015
    Area: 3,083, 500 sq. km–entire U.S. is 9,842,000 sq. km (1/4 size of U.S. and not quite a million inhabitants).
    Big city: Yakutsk pop. 323,000–can’t get there by road. 62 degree N lat.
    Vies with Norilsk a city in western Siberia for title of “coldest city on earth.” Yakutsk is colder in the winter. It’s NE Siberia, known as the coldest place on earth. Famous for world’s largest deposits of industrial diamonds. Norilsk has world’s largest nickel deposits and is known for spewing vast amounts of sulfur dioxide air pollution.
    OK, 1/4 the landmass of the U.S. and the article states the permafrost melt has halved the “arable” land to 121,000 acres (U.S. arable land: 290,000,000 acres!) And it’s “horse farming,” so it’s pasture land changed to wetlands. Well, the article mentions a lady who can grow potatoes, and hopes to be able to grow strawberries. Aw, give the lady a break. And I’d hate for some permafrost melt to hamper industrial mining of diamonds and nickel smelting.

    As for that Yedoma permafrost–it consists of massive chunks (lenses) of ice mixed with silt jumbled with plant and animal debris–note the mammoth and wooly rhinoceros tusks. It is not the usual permafrost, and geologists argue over how it was deposited. It is associated only with the mid-late pleistocene ice age (about 60,000-10,000BP) and none has formed since. It is described as loess (wind deposited), aeolian (again, wind deposited), with other possible means of deposit. It is not associated with glaciers. It is found from Siberia to Alaska to the northwestern Canadian Yukon.

    This is the “muck” hosed away by hydraulic gold mining found in Alaska where the Tanana River joins the Yukon, described in 1940 by F. Rainey of the Univ. of Alaska “wide cuts, often several miles in length and as much as 140 feet in depth.”
    F.C Hibben of the Univ. of New Mexico wrote in 1943: “the formation of the deposits of muck is not clear, there is ample evidence portions of the material were deposited under catastrophic conditions. Mammal remains are twisted and disarticulated, some fragments retain skin, hair, and flesh in their frozen state. Twisted and torn trees are piled in splintered masses.”

    This Yedoma permafrost yields the famous mammoths found with plant material in their teeth and stomachs and with flesh that looked like well-marbled beef that sled dogs could eat, animals deep frozen immediately after death “by a cold that knew no relenting after.” Perhaps a bit of that cold will relent, but it certainly doesn’t merit the climate hysteria we’re witnessing, and serves to illustrate that climate changes–often mysteriously, in ways we don’t understand.

    The”state capitalism” Whitney is talking about is called Fascism.It is the NSDAP 1929 dream economic program.It may work in Russia, who knows.It works in China-for now.
    I will take the philosophy of the founders of the American Republic, of sound money, of free markets, of trade with all, entangling alliances with none, of prosperity, which is the one and only, actually able to lift the sheeple out of poverty without the oppression of the State.
    Putin was criticized, that from 1999, was not actually able to lift the ordinary russians out of poverty, thus left with no choice, but to rock the russian state boat.The signs are on the wall, he will be replaced.What comes next is only anybody guess for Russia.

    The important point about melting permafrost is that it release HUGE amounts of methane and You can attack the Washington Post and any other newspaper you don’t like until the cows come home but you are unable to debunk the facts.

    You fail to address the release of CO2 which will raise the planet’s average temperature even higher because you are unable to debunk that essential fact.

    Humankind has only existed between a narrow range of temperatures. Not on a planet that is 5C, 2C or 3-4 C which is what our global temperature will be in possibly a few decades because of the offgasing of methane and carbon from melting permafrost.

    When the Blue event occurs in the Arctic and there is no longer ice to reflect sunlight back, that is estimated to raise ‘Earth’s temperature by another .6 C.

    The fastest temperature increase has come in the Arctic areas.

    “What we do know is that if the Arctic continues to warm as quickly as climatologists are predicting, an estimated 2.5 million square miles of permafrost — 40 percent of the world’s total — could disappear by the end of the century, with enormous consequences. The most alarming is expected to be the release of huge stores of greenhouse gases, including methane, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxide that have remained locked in the permafrost for ages. Pathogens will also be released. ”

    You say you have facts to refute but then offer suppositions (CO2 will raise the temperature) and predictions and bogus statements such as “humankind has only existed between a narrow range of temperatures”–go tell that to the Bedouins and Inuit.

    Explain how and why, for example, the Sahara transformed from verdant grasslands to the world’s largest desert in a few thousand years or why the massive ice cap over North America rapidly melted at the end of the last ice age. Or what caused the Little Ice Age from about 1300 to 1850 that wreaked havoc in Europe. Or the Medieval Warming period before that. You can’t. Nor can I. Nor has anyone.

    I remember how back in the 1970s the climate scare was the impending new Ice Age. Later, Al Gore, whose scientific expertise is apparently a couple of classes in “science for poets,” began his Chicken Little routines, and he only becomes more hysterical as each and every one of his predictions fails, as do the rest of the alarmists. Sorry, but when your batting average is .000, it’s time to quit dreaming of a career in the pony leagues, let alone the majors.

    Dr. Duane Thresher described how the instructors at NASA GISS told their students that they’d be thrown out of the program if they tried to use the institute’s climate models to predict future climates, since the models were useful only for specific, narrow purposes. At least one of those instructors later sold his soul when the global warming big bucks beckoned.

    A few days ago the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry announced their discovery that the floor of the northern Red Sea emits large amounts of ethane and propane, 220,000 tons annually, I think is the figure, equal to the hydrocarbons that Kuwait spits out. I’ve already teamed up with Greta and Al and Pave2Save will, for a mere ten trillion dollars, pave the bottom of the Red Sea. Too bad that the money could be used for any number of pressing environmental, and other, uses, such as LENR research–see 电子猫世界网 and 易猫网, for what is poised to revolutionize energy production on this planet–makes the schemes to load the planet with windmills and to plaster the deserts with solar reflectors (with the concomitant negative environmental effects) look like the ravings of Luddite cultists.

    How many nukes did the US sell Israel? I presume most of all of them since Israel probably doesn’t have the ability to make indoor plumbing and electricity for its buildings. My understanding is that Germany makes all of its submarines.

  216. @SeekerofthePresence

    I believe Israel sold China a great deal of the technology used in its latest weapons.

    Anyone upset about that?

    Why would anyone be upset about that? The Israelis “do like to make a sale!” The Chinese got what they wanted. The US MIC got competition that they needed to squeeze more money out of Congress for “R&D”. (& cost overruns.) No one upset, except perhaps a few US tax-payers, and who cares about them?
