Two more video chats. One was recorded last week with Ania Konieczek, who was in Dubai at the time. We talked about Poland and its role in the Russia/Ukraine war.
The Judge and I discussed the testimony before the House Armed Services Committee of General Cavoli, who heads of U.S. European Command (aka EUCOM) in Stuttgart, Germany. Cavoli is singing a different tune about Ukraine and Russia than is Secretary of Defense Austin. Cavoli makes the startling admission that Russian armed forces have not been significantly degraded.
Do you control the air theater? If not..your toast. Pretty simple.
whose toast? Define
Whose toast? Clarify please
The one who doesn’t control the air theater…..Ukraine
Alex Thrace says
Not my toast.
Never Forgive, Never Forget says
A toast to those who died in Odessa 9 years ago for defending Ukrainian democracy, burned alive by fascist thugs with America’s blessing.
Never Forgive, Never Forget says
Today marks the 9th anniversary of the brutal immolation and beating deaths of 48 pro-federalization protesters in Odessa’s Trade Union House by a jeering crowd of right wing thugs masquerading as patriotic lovers of democracy.
Brave or possibly suicidal Ukrainians are today allowed to lay flowers at the site, after walking through a check point and revealing their identities. Slava Ukraini.
The West is now welcome to hang its head in shame for 10 minutes.
“The forcible transfer and ‘russification’ of Ukrainian children shows evidence of genocide, says PACE”
One can no longer even decently revile these people. One would do bitter injustice to the noble people of the cockroaches – in intellectual as well as in ethical terms – especially in ethical …
Cult Fiction says
PACE has turned into some strange cult. Best I can come up with is the Moonies or Scientologists.
When are people going to understand that the “officials” and “agencies” don’t care if they are caught in lies. They, from president to secretary to general to…. get away with whatever they are caught in, with impunity. Pointing out they inconsistencies and lies means nothing because, well, they don’t care and there is no consequence. A we used to say “back home” – “Sila boga ne moli”, or in English “Might does not ask God (for permission)”.
Curt Nichols says
Thank you. They stole the election! There were no weapons of mass distraction! Jaime Dimon just got handed another 3 Billion dollars of your tax money! They lied!!!! Can you believe they are getting away with these lies!!!
Okay. Sure. So what? The sheep sit on the couch and look at porn and smoke weed. And you sit there with your outrage by yourself.
90% of the human race are mindless slaves. They will sit quietly while they are herded into the Auschwitz ovens just like the Jews were.
The only purpose of the outrage is for the few aware people to free themselves from the illusion. And what is that illusion? That good wins. Evil always wins. By definition. Evil will do anything. A good man has limits. And also? “Good” is a concept written about by the winners in the history books.
And the illusion of believing in anything. There is no “good” government. There are no “good” causes. They all will be perverted.
So, what to do? If you have a woman, or child, or dog you love? Protect them. Give up on the “big” picture. Protect yourself. Sit on your porch. Look at the sunset. Savor a beer. Understand that is sufficient.
I spent 60 years killing and fighting for “good”. How droll in retrospect.
“…the Auschwitz ovens just like the Jews were.”
There is no proof that this happened. The building was rebuilt after WWII. There is only the dubious eye witness testimony of proven liars such as Weisanthal.
In a 300,000 page Red Cross report there is zero mention of such events.
Larry Johnson says
Bullshit. You’re ignoring the overhead photographs. Auschwitz was a killing machine for Jews.
And they started with the disabled. Canada is going that way now with their assisted suicide program. Yes, voluntary suicide, as voluntary as vaccines when you need a job.
An immediate ban would be the proper reply. You cannot convince hard core Nazis to change their opinions.
Oświęcim (Auschwitz) było przygotowane dla Polaków. Żydzi dotarli tam dużo później, do miejscowości Brzezinka (Birkenau – Auschwitz II). Tak dla wyjaśnienia. Znowu ktoś sobie manipuluje historią.
Insanity is a bipartisan disorder says
LOL…how grr managed not to include the fake moon landings in his post is beyond me.
Interesting that observers like Larry and his sycophant followers see through lies spun as official truths in today’s Biden government but cant penetrate the preposterous concoctions about Auschwitz/Holocaust imposed upon the German nation.
Auschwitz was very real. When the Soviets liberated the camp, they were so appalled by what they saw, that they dynamited the whole damn thing. But around 1948, the Soviets tried to rectify their mistake by rebuilding a replica. Unfortunately, the Soviets didn’t make any big declaration that it had been rebuilt, although they also never pretended it wasn’t all rebuilt. Robert Faurisson, the Anglo-French historian learned it was rebuilt and went to Auschwitz. The then-Soviet director admitted to him that it was all rebuilt. Faurisson paid a very heavy price for uncovering and then publicizing the truth. His suffering has made yet one more cottage industry.
Mystic goose says
lol, I hate nazi’s but the fictitious oven horror story serves only one purpose, $$ to Israel. The guy is right, never been proven. I might add the decimation of Dresden lead to starvation in the camps, where Poles, Russians, Gypsies, retards and Jews were due to railways that carried food supplies being destroyed.
Udo the Understater says
Interesting that observers like Larry and his sycophant followers
Larry!! Great news. You have sycophant followers! Toadies even. Congrats, dude. Your very own army of brainwashed zombies. LOL
Al, you are a moron. We’re mostly free-thinkers here that run from the likes of the sheep-meisters and well, you.
Fulano de Tal says
You must be really a nazi or a huge ignorant, to say that, grr.
Pity the red army did not kill your grandparents.
“Auschwitz was a killing machine for Jews.”
This is not being an ignorant. This is being something different.
They killed many other people, why only mention jews?
PS: only 300,000 pages? Why don’t you say 3 millions? It’s free.
The others were simply collateral genocide.
You are ignoring two considerations:
1. The “ovens” as a metaphor of ultimate evil has long entered the vernacular of political dialog. Objecting to it is like saying “Overturning the money changers’ tables” is a lie. No proof it ever happened.” You can tie yourself to the mast (like Ulysses) to listen to Arthur R. Butz’s song safely but don’t sing it. Drop it.
2. “Denial” is not healthy for any site you wish to see prosper.
Simply Curious says
I wonder…..are we allowed to consider the Odessa Trade Union Building as ‘an oven’?
Stefan G says
You may be allowed to believe as you like, but it is you that believes in lies and you are not bright enought to be able to see the evilness in what you are communicating.
Let me tell you something:
My grandmother, born in 1927, still alive and healthy, has seen more than one of the ‘Konzentrationslager’ in Germany. One was Buchenwald, as she was sent to the countryside for her ‘Landjahr’, so that she was save from the bombings of her city, which is Essen (where the weapons of Krupp where build). It was forbidden to go to the camp and severely punished but she went looking anyways. And she was devastated by what she saw.
The secound was in Essen itself. When we drive by the place, she allways reminds me of the history of where I live. She still can not forget that the Nazis had planned for the people placed there to die throu hard work in the coal mine, while not fed enought to keep their bodies alive. So she did what she had to, to help them to survive. She got noticed and if the war would have gone a little longer, I would not exist today.
So, if I see commentaries like yours, my bloodpressure rises significantly.
Go check your brains out, read real history and pray that you do not end up in hell!!!
“90% of the human race are mindless slaves.” Never a quote was so accurate in hitting the bullseye. Yes, sir! The elites concoct weapons of mass distraction on a daily basis to keep the sheep in their place and the far majority of bipeds, go on with “their” lives never questioning the narrative. Obedience is the rule. However, there are those on Earth who are not of this Earth and that is what the elites are terrified of, really terrified of.
The elites are not terrified at all – this is why they act with impunity 🙂
Look at France – months of protests (which would never happen in the States – too obedient and propangadized?) and many of them got beat like animals by the police, yet Macron did not care, he still pushed on with his pension reform laws. Neither did the legislature. Look at demented Joe – his son is embroiled in scandal, the whole administration is drowning in embarrassment over all sorts of leaks, balloons, banks are failing etc. – yet Joe announces a run for president again. I mean, talk about “talk to the hand, can’t hear ya” kind of confidence… 🙂
I am pleased to read that the French police have suffered high casualties during their battles with the lawful protestors.
Jack Gordon says
Well, perhaps, but I have a maxim I often repeat to those who still seem to believe in the myths taught in US high school history classes. “Son, the only justice left in the secular world today is a Kizhal missile headed west.”
A. Dane says
Government officials telling Lies have become accepted in the West.
In 2001, Osama Bin Laden did not bomb the 3 towers on 9/11.
In 2006, Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
In 2008, the global financial crisis was not instigated by US Subprime borrowers.
In 2011, Anders Breivik was not alone in the Norwegian Utoya massacre.
In 2011, NATO did not conduct a ceasefire operation in Libya.
In 2013, Bashar al-Assad did not attack Ghouta with Sarin Gas.
In 2014, the Maidan Coupe in Ukraine was not conducted by the general public.
In 2014, the war in Yemen was not a Civil war but a proxy war by Sudan mercenaries.
In 2014, Angela Merkel and Francois Holland did not want peace in Eastern Ukraine.
In 2015, Angela Merkel and Francois Holland did not want peace in Eastern Ukraine.
In 2016, The British Government did not respect the Brexit referendum.
In 2017, Emmanuel Macron did not win the French Election.
In 2020, Joe Biden did not win the US presidential election.
In 2021, China did not construct the Sars-COV-2 virus.
In 2021, Joe Biden did not make an orderly US retreat from Afghanistan.
In 2022, The Sars-COV-2 vaccine and mask mandate did not protect against the virus.
In 2022, Russia did not bomb its own North Stream pipelines.
In 2023, Joe Biden did not make an orderly US retreat from Sudan.
In 2023, The US, EU and UK banking systems are not secured.
In 2023, Russia is not losing the war in Ukraine.
Western “officials” don’t care if they lie, because their lies have no consequences for themselves. However, their lies have killed millions of people, and have made the entire west descend into a new dark age.
So, what to do?
Rise up and punish these liars.
My 8-ball is defective says
I wish I were as endowed with clairvoyance and perfect knowledge as you. 🙁
Brilliant post- I would add that all the ‘evil doers’ will die, eventually.
Kirby today said Russia has lost 100k in Bahkmut alone.
It’s just not worth paying attention to or debating these jerks and their presstitute media.
I can think of two options: 1) the creation of a “shadow” government where Kirby’s double might speak more truthfully and 2) replacement of the MSM press. Without the latter, the former would be useless. We need a new form of the press and I don’t think online is going to work/survive. Paper? USB drives like Cuba used? fax machines like in the Czeck uprising? Do we have to go back to broadsheets and posters? To soap boxes and sandwich boards?
In any case, it’s a waste of energy to debate the BS the MSM and administration is slinging. That’s a war fought on their terms.
Soylent Green says
We need a new form of the press
The only solution is the samizdat project for the New American Century:
Samizdat was a form of dissident activity across the Eastern Bloc in which individuals reproduced censored and underground makeshift publications, often by hand, and passed the documents from reader to reader. The practice of manual reproduction was widespread, because most typewriters and printing devices required official registration and permission to access. This was a grassroots practice used to evade official Soviet censorship
William Simonton says
Thank you Larry for information in both videos and your sardonic wit!
Marty Mcfly says
Ania asks good questions, you can tell she’s curious and right hemisphere driven. Good on you to entertain that. It’s not often that logic driven discuss issues at this level of complexity with empaths. Empaths usually get lost, turn dark. She holds her own, stays positive. Now the judge is in a class of his own. Every question goes for the jugular, no prisoners taken. That’s what journalism used to be. Maybe we are witnessing a renaissance? This is grown ups talking. Good to see this. I remember watching Chomsky at his best and I see the same inquisitive discourse here.
Excellent update on the Judge. As good as gold. Thank you for the truth, Larry.
As Orwell said, during times of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
JK in Glendale says
That’s a good quote but there is no evidence that Orwell either said it or wrote it.
The quote is misattributed.
Many thanks as usual for your priceless insights and for kindly sharing them with us.
Incompetence within the CIA as you describe it is certainly real, but it doesn’t make the whole business more harmless globally. It feeds delusional thinking and wreaks more havoc far away and more dysfunctional government at home.
Malevolence, unlimited funding, illiteracy, an always hungry war machine; obvious short-sightedness and inability to keep pace with (let alone foresee) the deep and far-reaching evolutions taking place in the real world ; all this doesn’t bode well to say the least.
What has been striking me for years is the intensity of anti-Russian propaganda unleashed through the Western media, especially in Europe. Also, throughout the Trump presidency, the whole “Russian interference” drama played on the US political stage was lengthy and surreal but not meaningless as an effort to shape the public mood of the US against an “evil Russia”. All this tames the general opinion of the West and drives a majority of them towards acceptance of WWIII.
Still more specifically, you and Ania correctly identified/highlighted the hysterical hatred fostered against Putin and the making of him to a “public enemy” figure inside the Collective West. This highly toxic perception is rooted in the belated (2014) awareness of a Russian resurrection under Putin’s leadership, and the associated paranoid feelings in Washington, Brussels, London, Warsaw among others. Russia is no longer the powerless half-dead bear it had been after Gorbachev, and whom Obama ten years ago still spoke disdainfully of.
All the more worrisome is the equally belated revelation of the shocking fact that China is not a hill of brainless ants/subhumans volunteering to labor for us in exchange for a daily bowl of rice. But a proud country of educated, patriotic, hardworking citizens, whose grandparents and parents have sustained endless hardships and prolongated heroic struggles in order to stand up again, and they have succeeded in doing so.
It looks like the ruling circles of the West have bathed themselves far too long in the warm waters of wishful group thinking, and now have trouble coming to terms rationally with the plain cold reality. They perceive it as some kind of illogical nightmare, contrary to all their expectations. This psychological condition makes them very dangerous indeed.
We watched your interview with Ania Konieczek and it was excellent. I’m wondering about your remark about the NIH funding a lab in Sudan. I can’t find a direct grant to a lab there. The closest is a grant that funded a US/British group of biodefense type researchers. This was published in 2020. They wanted a lab set up there.
A lot of this activity is an employment program for scientists, I think. Maybe a waste of tax money, maybe a biological threat. There could be something more nefarious, of course.
Another self-evident truth emerges says
These labs are dual use. Why dual use? Because anything that emerges from their research that has weapons potential can and will be exploited.
employment for scientists in Sudan by NIH? Just say it out loud for a laugh.
Sadly, Oddo’s right.
Curt Nichols says
Totally not related to this post. So, scorch it if you want Larry. These geopolitical and societal upheavals are reflected in the current financial markets. I love making money. I was raised poor white trash. The thought that my money just makes money without me working a shovel fascinates me every day.
This market is dangerous. And that is when the big money gets made and lost. Long term government bonds. Brutalized last year when Powell went from 0 to 5%. On a 16 year duration fund that is a huge loss. And when you look at bond funds over 2022? You see that.
And if you go deep and long government bonds now? And Powell cuts rates to re-elect Pedo Joe? 16% upside for every interest rate spike down 1%. While you make 3%. Fairly safely. UNLESS rates go even higher. But we got a fun war with China to finance and a pedophile to re-elect. So, I see rates down.
I’m rolling the dice after the hike 25 BPS hike tomorrow. YOLO. I’ve always believed you buy when there is blood in the streets.
Oblomovka daydream says
When it comes down to which analysts from the West are being quoted the most in the Russian media, it is really remarkable how often Larry Johnson and Colonel Douglas McGregor are presented to the Russian public. Now an article appeared in which the Colonel’s views are being presented very extensively.
“Only a facade will remain of NATO”: Colonel McGregor on the fate of the alliance after the Ukrainian conflict
In an interview with YouTube channel Stephen Gardner, retired US Army Colonel Douglas McGregor expressed serious doubts that after the end of hostilities in Ukraine, the Western military bloc will continue to exist in its current form. According to the expert, given the conservatism of the Europeans, the NATO building itself will probably remain, but it will only be a decoration.
The last question, and it builds on what we talked about earlier in our program. You mentioned that, in your opinion, this conflict will either end NATO, or it will cease to be the same. You see how French President Macron behaves when he meets with Xi Jinping and actually publicly announces: “In the dispute over Taiwan, we will be on the side of China, against the United States.” Can this be seen as the first crack in the alliance?
How do you see changes in NATO? Because I was very shocked (Macron’s behavior. – InoTV ). And even the Polish authorities said last week that perhaps Macron is right and that Western Europe has relied on the United States for too long.
DOUGLAS MACGREGOR, retired US Army Colonel: When President Trump was in office, he was very strong in his insistence: “All Europeans must respond to emergencies on their own. In other words, you must stop relying on us to cross thousands of miles of ocean and airspace to save you in times of crisis or conflict. You have to be able to defend yourself.”
In my opinion, after this meeting, it was Angela Merkel who became very offended, as if we had some kind of constant and sacred duty to forever protect her and Germany. And she said, “Perhaps now is the time for us to think about independence. We must become an independent force on the world stage.” And guess what happened? Nothing! It was empty rhetoric.
Look, until we leave Europe, until we get out of these places, in my opinion, nothing significant will happen. Such is human nature. Why would you suddenly spend money when the US military is ready to protect you? You don’t need it.
It’s a very simple equation: one plus one equals two. It is necessary to remove the unit, and then the unit will become equal to one. We need to get to the point where they (European governments. – InoTV ) understand that we are serious. What will demonstrate our seriousness? Withdrawal of troops. This is the answer to the first part of your question.
The second part of your question is: will NATO change? I think that the Ukrainian conflict is fundamentally changing not only America’s relationship with Europe, but also with the rest of the world. And no one in Europe is interested in a war with China. It’s just stupid.
They are not interested in a war with China. They want to do business with the Chinese. We decided that we do not like this state of affairs and we would like to prevent it. Well, I wish you success! It’s like stopping the Mississippi from flowing into the Gulf of Mexico.
People will do business with China. By the way, we will also conduct it in some form.
Again, President Trump has always made a very simple argument, if we’re going to do business with these people, let’s do it honestly. In other words, we’re not going to do business if they’re making a profit and we’re not. Trade must be mutually beneficial. Again, a very simple equation. It makes sense.
But is it worth it to go to war with China over Taiwan, which is six thousand miles from the US and probably as far or more from Europe? No, no one is interested in this. Moreover, there is no evidence that the Chinese are preparing an invasion. All this is complete nonsense.
So, I think the bottom line is that if this (the Ukrainian conflict. – InoTV ) ends, will NATO remain? Well, the façade will exist for a while. Will it have any content? Doubtful. Will it last more than a few years? I don’t know. I mean Europeans are very conservative people. I am sure that there will be a building in front of which the NATO flag will fly. Will it mean something? I don’t think so.
In my opinion, the Europeans must form their own future together. This does not mean that they should take an anti-American stance. This does not mean that they should be hostile to Russia. This means that they need to create their own future.
I think they understand it. But nothing will happen until the incumbent governments leave. Until Scholz and his team leave. Until Macron leaves. Until there is another or maybe a new set of prime ministers in Britain who finally realize that they cannot behave the way they have in the past. Then everything will change.
And by the way, here in the United States, I don’t expect much to change until the economy collapses and the financial system collapses. I think we’re getting close to it, but until that happens, the Americans won’t take real action. I suspect it’s human nature.
Yeah, Europe is much more excited about its leaders than the US.
Colonel Douglas MacGregor, thank you for sharing your insight, your wisdom with us. We appreciate you. We appreciate your service to our country and thank you for coming to visit us today.
DOUGLAS MACGREGOR: Of course, Steve. Thank you.
The assertion that the Soviet army stood outside Warsaw and intended for the uprising to fail because that met Soviet needs, is entirely not true. When the Red Army neared Warsaw, they were at the very end of their logistics train and had no choice but to regroup and reinforce before pushing on to take Warsaw. But by the time the Soviets were prepared, the German high command realized they needed to keep Warsaw and transferred a large number of army divisions to Warsaw who dug in to defend it. So the Soviets didn’t take in August or September because they were unable to, and any ulterior motives are irrelevant, except as Cold War propaganda. This is thoroughly-enough covered in Geoffrey Roberts’ book, “Stalin’s War”.
There was another and more sinister angle: the British role. The Brits were stupidly eager to start the Warsaw uprising long before their forces were ready. Personally, I believe the British may have planned an abortive uprising, precisely to poison future Polish-USSR relations. Even though a Warsaw uprising was premature, the Brits strongly insisted that the USSR supply the resistance in Warsaw with air drops. Everyone agrees, FWIW, that those Polish forces were pro-British and not pro-USSR. But in fact, the Polish resistance only had a small area to receive what were relatively large air drops, and in fact nearly all the air-dropped material ended up in German hands. At one point, an NKVD officer parachuted along with the supplies to figure out why it wasn’t getting through, but this officer was captured by the Nazis, who killed him.
The other item that should never be forgotten is the actions of the British and POlish governments in the run-up to WW2. Britain wrote “a check it could not cash” when Chamberlain promised British protection for Poland on March 30, 1939. This was absurd because the UK only had two army divisions and any naval support would have to pass an absolutely impossibly long route from England to Poland. The Warsaw government eagerly used Chamberlain’s phony promise to continue to refuse any sort of French-British-USS alliance to stop the Germans. It’s well documented that when the Doumenc delegation was in Moscow, August 1939, and the French badly needed to gain Polish support, and Captain Beaufre was dispatched to Warsaw to get their assent, the Polish response was such a resounding No! that the French and British diplomats in Warsaw refused to ask a second time. That’s in General Doumenc’s memoirs which were long-buried and only published in 1992 by Depla (Editions Olivier), “Les papiers secrets du General Doumenc”.
Well, Warsaw’s refusal to form an alliance to stop the Germans, has had historical repercussions. Warsaw and London paved the road for Hitler’s armies, so they can reap the whirlwind.
In short, it’s recycling long-refuted Cold War garbage to talk about the Soviets double-dealing the Polish resistance. All of our received wisdom needs to be re-examined and checked.
Well, quite possibly the British role may have been that sinister and deceitful, and Poland’s rulers may have been that stubbornly blind to begin with.
But anyway, what happened in Katyn ALSO testifies of Stalin’s being bent to murder the Polish nation when given the opportunity.
Murdering higher-level military officers is hardly the same as murdering an entire nation. Those officers were extremely hostile to the USSR and to Russia. That Polish army defeated the Soviet army in the 1920’s (including units commanded by Stalin himself), and all Polish officers wholeheartedly supported the Pilsudski dictatorship. So those officers were going to give dangerous resistance to the Soviets after they liberated Poland. In a more just world, those officers could have been taken away as prisoners.
I have 2 questions for anyone who has hard facts:
1. Was the Katyn massacre really committed by the Soviets or did the Germans do it ? I understand this is not settled historical fact. Post-1990, some Russians have claimed the Germans did Katyn. It’s yet another cottage industry I haven’t had time to resolve.
2. If the Soviets actually held the officers, could they have hauled them off to prisons ? I’m not justifying the war crime of killing prisoners. But in a very deadly conflict, there is barely any historical precedent for letting sworn enemies go free.
My third open question is “Why blame Russia for Katyn?” Stalin and the USSR are long gone and Christian non-Bolschevist Russia didn’t exist back then. This looks like centuries-old Polish hatred for Russia, turned into postwar propaganda, not a rational assignment of blame.
Larry Johnson says
If the Soviets were not responsible, then why did Putin apologize for the murders?
Andrzej Durlik says
There is no doubt concerning Katyń. Documents, where Stalin and Beria signed for those officers’ death, were given to the Polish government by Mikhail Gorbachev. There are many books, articles, websites, documentaries and even one feature film, where the circumstances leading to the massacre , and the massacre itself are described. After the fall of the Soviet Union, various Russian governments, and the Duma admitted to, and condemned this crime. The Banderites had nothing to do with this crime, but they committed even more barbaric and atrocious genocide a bit later, killing during World War II approx. 200,000 Poles, mostly defenseless in villages of Eastern Lesser Poland (that was a part of Poland before being annexed by Stalin in 1939/1945, and incorporated into the Soviet Ukraine). The current, and all previous (except Kravchuk), governments of Ukraine lied about the massacres, never apologise, or even admit to those massacres. However, today’s government of Poland betrays Poland’s raison d’état and chooses to keep quiet about it (perhaps,
ordered by Washington). Again, there are many books, documents, testimonies of witnesses, websites, a feature film and documentary films concerning the matter.
Andrzej Durlik says
What you say is mostly untrue. I see in your writing a great sympathy, if not adoration, of the Soviet Union. Yes, the Red Army waited for the Germans to finish off the Warsaw Uprising (by the way of provocation, before the uprising started, their radiostation incouraged the Home Army to rise up against the Germans). Stalin already had plans for postwar Poland, and would never allow the uprising to succeed. The allies helped very little the heroic Polish fighters in Warsaw, so after two months of killing and destroying Warsaw, the Germans won. In a way, Poland’s government-in-exile was not convenient to the allies because of its conflict with Stalin and the USSR. Possibly, gen. Sikorski’s death in the Gibraltar catastrophe (the Brits still do not want to declassify documents related to it) was linked to this attitude. But the greatest disaster was coming in Yalta.
Curt Nichols says
What will the source of 80% of the world’s death and destruction do when they are out of cannon fodder? I mean proxy wars are fun. Vicki Nuland can watch the drone kills while touching herself. But every once in a while, you need some good old-fashioned democracy spreading via 1 million dead or so. And the kids aren’t buying.
I have one question. Would bringing back the draft shake these couch whales out of their complacency?
I reckon a draft would make the lazy, the incurious, the brainwashed, the ignorant, and the braindead finally pay attention.
But too late for them.
“Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.”
If the leak by the 21-year old was a controlled leak by people above him for fear of what could happen to the U.S. if the same trajectory continues, thank you to those people for the recognition.
After watching the snippet of video in Larry’s interview with the Judge, I heard something I’ve been fearing so I listened to the whole two hour+ video. It was obvious to me General Cavoli is an extremely competent military Commander but I have to disagree with you, Larry. I don’t believe he is looking for a lifeboat; I think he is looking for the chief of staff of the Army position. If General McConville is in that position for another 15 weeks, he will have been the longest serving Chief all the way back to General Marshall who left in 1945. I believe General Cavoli, especially with his recent testimony, looks like the right man for the job after the false flag I fear is coming. He’s a bit younger than General McConville too. I don’t know about you, Larry, but those two hours were difficult to stomach with all the out-of-touch politicians’ rhetoric.
I’ve listened to a lot of people tell me how Russia is making all these advancements but the warmongers in Washington kept saying Ukraine had taken back all the territory they lost in the early days of “this illegal, unprovoked, brutal, barbarian, appalling, war criminal Putin’s war.” WTF? It was pathetic how all of them danced around blowing up the Nord Stream pipeline without saying Nord Stream pipeline. “Europe used to be about 40% dependent on Russian gas. Now that has gone down to near zero and converted to LNG. Why do you think that is, General? Germany is not contributing their fair share to NATO. Why do you think that is, General?” BECAUSE YOU BLEW UP THEIR FUCKING PIPELINE!!! I kept screaming at my computer. Yes, I’m kind of like that. “Old Europe needs to learn the lessons of Nord Stream 2 and not to become dependent on adversaries,”said Chairman Rogers at the beginning. Some Europeans could squint their ears and interpret that as a threat or an “if you are not with us, you are with the Russians.” Be careful what you ask for, congress people. You are building a second iron curtain but this time around the U.S.
It’s extremely difficult to understand that MSM has any credibility left to where the people would not snicker at these people asking these ridiculous questions but even with all the truth tellers on the internet, I know there are many who listen mostly to their TV; we learned that with the clot shot. That’s why they had to get rid of Tucker Carlson before the false flag. The warmongers will have to create something that will overcome the inertia of the truth tellers on alternative media and get the citizenry behind WWIII. WWI and WWII were started by naval events. Will the start of WWIII also be the result of a naval event? I think so.
Larry Johnson says
You could be right. A valid conjecture.
Paulo Guerra says
I continue to agree and see Ray McGovern as one of the best analysts of the conflict in Ukraine and the White House. Biden has already taken defeat in Ukraine and will have to sacrifice someone, most likely Bliken! A big defeat for the neocon wing in the US and there will be no more counter-offensive in Ukraine. At best, some hype like last summer. Zaluzhny waiting for the Dnieper water to warm up is LMAO! Are they going to swim across the Dnieper with a navy in kayaks?
Which makes Cavoli’s statements in Congress and Sullivan’s intervention announcing the end of neoliberalism – LMFAO – the main facts of the week in the US ahead of the leaks! Definitely from the deep state, no doubt! My guess is the Army because the secretary of defense is proof that they don’t even bother to camouflage the trafficking of interests and corruption in the White House. Austin wants business for Raytheon and US MIC!
And I also funny Mcgregor’s belief that the only chance for Washington to stop being taken over by financial power is another crash?! When in 2008 the power of the financial sector in the US – and in the world – only it was increased! Today it’s no longer the indebted states who wage wars. Those who provoked the war in Ukraine and want Russia’s resources are the big investment funds like Blackrock and the big banks like Goldman Sachs. The world’s biggest fortunes, hedge funds like blackwaters, etc. And unfortunately it is not easy to change the course of the US economy with the current debt burden and the end of the US dollar hegemony! And the unipolar world! Much less will happen overnight as Trump promised! In the same way that the displacement of production in pursuit of low wages did not happen overnight, but over several decades. But in the medium term, it’s best for the US, for Americans and for the world.
The US returns to regulating the financial markets and stops subsidizing the big corporations and the biggest fortunes who command the US and the state resumes assuming the functions of any state so that the economy can once again compete in terms of production instead of trying to dominate the world with weapons and threats! Biden should resign and not think about another term! And it was good that they put an end to a two-party system in the path of more pluralism and a true Democracy. So that they don’t end up with just one war party again!

Larry, how can I view the videos you post? Every time I try I get the following https://youtu.be/hEs-abCcGhc which brings me to a black screen that says the video must be approved for me to view.
