Here’s the real story: Russia’s invasion is the end result of 14 years of provocation by the West, including repeated declarations that Ukraine will join NATO and a U.S.-backed coup d’état in 2014 that displaced a pro-Russian president. “Rickards: I’ve Never Heard So Many Lies.” By James Rickards, ZeroHedge, 3/31/22 (emphasis removed).

The U.S. propaganda deluge.

In foreign relations, here we are today: the US is in a de facto but undeclared war with Russia. No one calls it that, but that’s what it amounts to when the US is providing armaments through intermediaries to the forces that Russia is battling on its border. This intensifies and escalates conflict, same as …

Pearls of expression.

Me and Musk are on the same wavelength. Except for him being born in a different part of the world, growing up to create the largest online payment system and eventually create re-usable rockets that launch into space and land vertically while seeding the lower Earth orbit with satellites that decoupled the internet from the …

The Mrs. Jellyby syndrome.

Here’s a good description of our Iraq misadventure: America has made plenty of blunders as a global superpower, but the Iraq War was the worst. It was entirely optional, easily avoidable, strategically worthless, hideously wasteful, and far too often, morally compromising. As bad as a mistake as Iraq was, in the moment it can be …

The circus freaks who run the U.S. government

In August 2020, the Washington Post published an opinion piece, “What Americans should learn from Belarus” as part of a flurry of articles setting the narrative that Trump was doomed to lose the election and that he would attempt to seize power by authoritarian means when he did. It directly drew parallels between the BLM …

Fundamental atrophy.

While the war [in Ukraine] is of huge importance geopolitically, it would, however, be misleading to overstate its economic effects, given all the other enormous economic challenges already in place. For example, the Financial Times claims that the war has ‘shattered hopes of a strong global economic recovery from coronavirus’. But this implies that a …

Today’s biology lesson.

Here we take a closer look at the rare Siberian fox, Russia’s answer to Bronx Tina or Marjorie Taylor Green: It’s just an image not the usual video link. Click here to go to the South Front page where I found this gem. Sometimes SF pages are unreachable for some strange reason but this link …

Satire to the rescue.

Deranged, loose-cannon Putin: I’m referring, of course, to Putin’s inexplicable and totally unprovoked invasion of Ukraine, a totally peaceful, Nazi-free country which was just sitting there minding its non-Nazi business, singing Kumbaya, and so on, and not in any way collaborating with or being cynically used by GloboCap to menace and eventually destabilize Russia so …

The reckless malevolence of the political class.

People intend the natural consequences of their acts. The burgeoning trade deficits are not the result of bad trade deals or ineffective tariff policies. They are the result of a deteriorating U.S. economy which is no longer one of production, but of consumption and debt. A growing economy creates trade surpluses not deficits; it produces …

The Romper Room Narrative.

Since the start of the Thursday Feb.24 invasion [of Ukraine], the prevailing narrative concerning Russia’s motives has been largely limited to an ultra-simplistic hollywoodwesque story that goes something like this: one day a big bully and monster named Putin decided he wanted to invade and kill people in a neighboring country, and that he further …

More on Russian motivation for invasion.

Bernard at Moon of Alabama[1] believes several things informed the Russian decision to invade: Zelinsky’s announcement in spring of 2021 that Ukraine would retake Crimea by force, Ukraine’s announcement in November 2021 that it would retake the Donbass by force, an increase in Febuary 2022 of cease fire violations and “explosions,” “most” coming from the …

Fair assessment?

Volodymyr Zelensky is the current President of Ukraine. He was elected in a landslide victory in 2019 on the promise of easing tensions with Russia and resolving the crisis in the breakaway republics in east Ukraine. He has made no attempt to keep his word on either issue. Instead, he has greatly exacerbated Ukraine’s internal …

Solzhenitsyn’s observation.

In his Harvard address in 1978, Solzhenitsyn made a reference to the absence of great statesmen in the west. That has proven all the more to be the case since then. Rule by moral midgets is the rule now. The posturing Trump could not contain his feverish wish to bomb Syria in 2017 and Clinton …

Dugin is exactly right.

What does it mean for Russia to break with the West? It is salvation. The modern West—where the Rothschilds, Soros, the Schwabs, Bill Gates and the Zuckerbergs triumph—is the most disgusting phenomenon in world history. It is no longer the West of Greco-Roman Mediterranean culture, the Christian Middle Ages, or even the violent and contradictory …

Wise guy alert.

Thank God Trump isn’t President. I was so sick and tired of affordable gas and food. And no wars for 4 years was just too much to handle. Source: The Dank Knight, somewhere on the web.

What passes for intellectual competence.

The Atlantic The Reason Putin Would Risk War. He is threatening to invade Ukraine because he want democracy to fail — and not just in that country. ~ Anne Applebaum.[1] Wasn’t the objective of the 2014 U.S. regime change operation in Ukraine designed to remove the elected president of the country? I mean, I’m just …

The Appearance of Global Coordination.

It’s amazed me the extent to which many Western governments during the “pandemic” adopted the identical hostility to alternate prophylactics, palliatives and treatments and had the identical fixation on so-called vaccination, lockdowns, economic destruction, statistical distortion,[1] and general viciousness. The following is from an article that suggests what the common thread is: Pharmaceutical companies such …

Defend the narrative. CDC job numero uno.

But the CDC and the FDA won’t give a straight answer to that question [the under reporting factor in the VAERS data] and many others she [Jessica Rose, data analyst] has posed. “It’s like tumbleweeds blowing by for months, and probably going on a year now,” she said. Rose emphasizes that she uses raw data …

Toadspeak/bafflegab from the northern commissar.

When nimrods like this talk about “reimagining” what humans have come up with over the millennia I look forward to what they have in store for us. I has to be good and they certainly don’t have a hidden agenda. Yes, let’s have things decided by 500 leftist twits. PS — Our “democracy.”

Uh oh.

The Climate Intelligence Foundation (CLINTEL) has cataloged significant errors in the UN IPCC AR6 [United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Sixth Assessment Report] Summary for Policy Makers (SPM) and distributed this error listing and analysis to the IPCC Chair and other world leaders to inform them of these errors. The identified errors result in …
