There are moment in time that change the world. Hitler’s invasion of the Soviet Union on 22 June 1941 was one of those. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941 was another as was 9 November 1989, when the wall in Berlin, Germany, erected by the Soviets, was torn down. And you have witnessed another one today, with Russia and China signing historic, unprecedented agreements.
Prior to 1642, Russia and China had no diplomatic or military interaction.
From 1652 to 1689, China’s armies drove the Russian settlers out, but after 1689, China and Russia made peace and established trade agreements.
In the intervening 334 years, China and Russia never established a de facto alliance. At times that were at odds and, during the last 50 years, U.S. policy made it a priority to keep a wedge between Moscow and Beijing. That is over. China and Russia are now allies, with China being the largest industrial power in the world and Russia the largest supplier of critical commodities. Their political union marks the end of Pax Americana and the U.S. domination of the international order.
Pay close attention to the joint-statement of Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping:
◾️ The Russian Federation positively assesses the position of China on Ukraine, and China positively assesses the readiness of the Russian Federation to launch negotiations;
◾️ Russia and China are concerned about the risks associated with the creation of AUKUS and their plans to build nuclear submarines;
◾️ Russia and China call on AUKUS to strictly fulfill its obligations to non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction;
◾️ Russia and China are planning to strengthen a comprehensive partnership in the energy sector;
◾️ The Russian Federation and China believe that in order to resolve the Ukrainian crisis, it is necessary to prevent bloc confrontation and incitement of conflict;
◾️ The Russian Federation and China are concerned about the military-biological activities of the United States, they demand clarification on this matter;
◾️ Russia and China will expand scientific exchanges to ensure the technological leadership of the two countries;
◾️ The Russian Federation and China urge to avoid the degradation of the crisis in Ukraine and its transition “to an uncontrollable phase”;
◾️ Russia and China oppose all unilateral sanctions imposed bypassing the UN Security Council;
◾️ Russia and China are pushing for the US to speed up the elimination of its stockpile of chemical weapons;
◾️ Russia and China will strengthen cooperation in agriculture to ensure food security;
◾️ The Russian Federation and China plan to promote mutual and global energy security;
◾️ Russia and China insist that NATO strictly observe the defensive nature of their organization and respect foreign sovereignty;
◾️ Russia and China oppose the formation of “closed exclusive bloc structures, bloc policies and opposing camps” in the Asia-Pacific region;
◾️ The Russian Federation and China will increase the scale and optimize the structure of trade, including through the development of electronic commerce;
◾️ Russia and China are going to increase the level of financial cooperation and strengthen cooperation in the financial markets;
◾️ The United States must take real action to address the legitimate concerns of the DPRK and create conditions for dialogue;
◾️ The Russian Federation and China are concerned about the intensification of US activities in the field of missile weapons and call for an end to undermining international security;
◾️ Russia and China are against attempts to use space for armed confrontation and will oppose such activity;
◾️ Russia and China will expand mutual access to agricultural products and strengthen investment cooperation in this area;
◾️ The Russian Federation and the PRC are aimed at cooperation in the field of mutually beneficial supply of basic goods and mineral resources;
◾️ The Russian Federation and China oppose the militarization of IT, they are for multilateral, equal and transparent global governance of the Internet.
This is a game changer. The world we have known will no longer have the United States as the first among equals. In the same way that World War II marked the end of the British imperial empire, today’s events in Moscow are a death knell for the United States being able to act as the global policeman who imposes order on unruly countries.
The pitiful state of America’s power was on display as it tried in vain to sabotage the Putin/Xi summit:
- An information campaign stating that Xi Jinping will not come
- Threats against China if Xi Jinping comes
- Requirements for China to condemn Russia
- Requirements for China not to supply weapons to Russia Only the West has the right to supply weapons to Ukraine.
- Statements that any Russian-Chinese agreements will not matter
- Hasty organization of the Japanese Prime Minister’s visit to Ukraine on the day of Xi’s visit
- The death of Chinese workers in the Central African Republic
- Announcement of hasty deliveries of new weapons to Ukraine
- Declassified intelligence documents aimed at blaming China for the origin of the coronavirus
- We began to equip a new military base in the Philippines
The Biden Administration is flailing in its response to this new alliance. The loss of American influence in the world is not going to happen overnight, but the process has started. Remember this day. It will change the lives of your children and grandchildren. Let us pray that is for the good.
And so it begins.
And so it does.
So there it goes . . .

Re: The loss of American influence in the world is not going to happen overnight, but the process has started.
Everyone sane well-informed person on the planet, including the tragically diminishing minority of sane people in America, cannot wait for it happen. It cannot happen fast enough if there is ever to be any hope of a peaceful multipolar world.
The latest pronouncement by Britain that it is going to provide Ukraine with depleted uranium (DU) shells for the Challenger tanks it is supplying to Ukraine is just more evidence as to why this hegemonic death cult has to be eliminated from the exercise of any more power over other nations. The world’s policemen protecting the ‘Rules Based Order” be damned – more like Genocide Inc.
From the BBC today
Ukraine war: UK defends sending depleted uranium shells after Putin warning
The following article provides good insight into the impacts of DU shells – although quick search I just conducted as usual turns up very little now thanks to the Big Brother censoring search engine algos – a few years ago there was much more readily available online about DU effects, a lot of which also detailed the horrible effects DU shells had on the poor unsuspecting US soldiers who were exposed to the deadly uranium dust particles that spread far and wide with each shell exploding.
Another US war crime: the use of depleted uranium munitions in Iraq
Following at link below is an excellent discussion on The Duran about the war in Ukraine in which Dima (of The Military Summary Channel) explains the horrific effects of DU shells. This link will take you directly to that part of the discussion at the 56min 27sec section where Dima talks about DU shells and their deadly effects.
Final Chapter in the Donbass front w/Dima from Military Summary Channel (Live)
I encourage you all to listen to that and ponder what the consequences might be. Dima explains how soldiers who are wounded by DU shell shrapnel who with medical interventions might otherwise have been able to continue with their lives, albeit with greater of lesser impairments depending on severity of their injuries, never survive long after injuries from DU shrapnel as the deadly chemical toxicity and radiation from the uranium dust particles poisons them to death in slow horrible ways.
Britain supplying Ukraine with DU shells aside, we have the truly insane pronouncement by the ICC (International Criminal Court) that it has issued an arrest warrant for President Putin for the illegal deportation of children – which is double speak for the humanitarian act of removing traumatized Ukraine orphans out of harms way and taking them to Russia to be adopted by Russian parents. The function of the ICC would be much more honestly described by renaming the ICC as ‘The International Cabal of Criminals’.
From the ICC website as follows:
Situation in Ukraine: ICC judges issue arrest warrants against Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin and Maria Alekseyevna Lvova-Belova
If I were managing the hands of the Doomsday Clock then I would have the time displaying 23hrs 59min 59sec – that is 1 second to midnight – in the knowledge that if I were a Russian in high office of military command and had any say in conduct of protecting my people and country, then I suspect I would making good case to Putin and others in the decision-making circle that it would be suicidal to delay launching the best and most devastating hypersonic missiles into strategic sites across EU and UK with a special one for the ICC. Of course the Russians are for more forbearing than I am but I hope their patience does not prove to be too fatal for them.
Nothing we think we know can prepare us for what is about to unfold.
Meanwhile the zombies in the Western nations unwaveringly confident that their mighty unconquerable military will protect them forever and will allow them to continue with their mindless pursuits, glued to Facebook, fixated on the really meaningful stuff like the exploding fat butts of the brain-dead Kadashian bimbos.
“The latest pronouncement by Britain that it is going to provide Ukraine with depleted uranium (DU) shells for the Challenger tanks it is supplying to Ukraine”
Another incremental step up (anyone remember ‘two weeks to flatten the curve’?)
At this rate I’m starting to worry they will soon try a first strike.
DU is a first strike.
Col Doug Macgregor on Judge Napolitano, suggested that there was little if any evidence of DU having the effects suggested by Dima and many others. Maybe he wishes to downplay it as he, by his own admission, used them in Iraq.
Even so, it is a sickening escalation by my increasingly deranged country.
Allan Mountain says
Glasshopper (love your pseudonym)
I would publicly challenge Col Macgregor to visit the site where recently exploded DU shells have exploded, hang around and have a picnic lunch there while he breathes in the air. I suspect he would be rather reticent to do so.
Furthermore I suspect you are probably right in what you wrote:
he wishes to downplay it as he, by his own admission, used them in Iraq.
and the role he played in what was then Yugoslavia when they bombed the hell of it in 1990s
Otherwise I do like Macgregor’s comments about events in Ukraine and the madness that is proliferating in the Anglo-American-NATO group
To be fair, he did state that there is evidence in both directions on the effects of DU shells. But I agree with your larger point: given he has used them then he would find it difficult to discuss the effects. No doubt US MIC funded research tends to play down radiation related effects!
War is a terrible thing. Period. The U.K. (my country with whose attitudes I am increasingly misaligned) should not be supplying any weapons to stoke up this conflict, be they DU shells or not. All weapons kill.
The Chinese and Russians have very effectively called the bluff of the US, which is the only real decision maker on the western side. By rejecting any peace overtures out of hand the Biden administration has fallen right into a trap. Everyone in the Global South and outside of the western propaganda bubble can now see who the true war mongers are.
I’ve seen McGregor saying this and was surprised. Sure, DU is quite safe for the handlers of ammo. DU is the part of natural Uranium which remains after the isotops for nuclear use have been removed. It is not that radioactice, but tends after impact to become dust which can be inhalated and accumulated within the body. And there even low level of radiation impacts. Henceforth, it is toxic and can as toxic dust be inhalated. There is quite a long documentary made by a German movie maker (part 1 of 8 is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkKveJFdUjM), just look at the pics from the kids, to get an idea. The Russians are well aware what DU does, they do not use DU themself but Tungsten (W, having similar density as U).
U238 is a strong alpha-emitter. Alpha particles are ingestion hazards, causing cancer, especially in lung tissue.
Alpha is easy to shield, so the material encased in shells is relatively safe to handle, but when you break the shells on impact the material is spread everywhere, and dust is created.
“Col Doug Macgregor on Judge Napolitano, suggested that there was little if any evidence of DU having the effects suggested by Dima and many others. Maybe he wishes to downplay it as he, by his own admission, used them in Iraq.”
As long as its unspent ammunition (also available in 25 and 30mm ammo for IFVs, like M2 Bradley) is reasonably safe.
Its have some innate radiation but it takes prolly weeks to sleep with such a round to get the dose equivalent to a standard medical X-ray.
HOWEVER, hitting a target, during and after penetration the Uranium alloy disintegrates into particles, which burn. The Uranium oxide particles – as any heavy metal – are highly toxic (that is why humanity mostly abandoned leaded fuel). And that is the danger, poisoning the wounded and the general area, soil and water.
Olivier Sauvage says
Yes, I was shocked by the demonstrably false statement made by the otherwise truthful and honorable Col. Douglas McGregor. He may be ill-informed about the after-effects of the poisonous radioactive munition and even then it’s inexplicable, given that the Colonel is a quite well-read and knowledgeable fellow. Strange….
I think he should look more careful into the story
I have a lot of respect for McGregor for what he does and its understandable that he downplays it a little but there is lots of evidence what depleted uranium munition is doing
even if only 20% of this is really happening its horror
sad so sad
I respect the Colonel for speaking the truth about the current horde of creeps who have our country by the throat in one hand while simultaneously reaching to strangle Russia with the other.
But, he is not right about everything he says. I’ve found him to be in error about many past events which I won’t bother to mention.
It stands to reason anything having to do with uranium is harmful or it would not be useful in a wartime environment.
just saying says
How surprising that a war criminal downplays stuff that he was involved in. I hope Russians and Chinese make some international DU war crimes court in the future.
Fulano de Tal says
I was very disappointed with MacGregor as well.
A long time ago I had a conversation with a tank platoon commander who had just rotated from Iraq, he told me their tanks were hot, they were hot from shooting DU shells.. They were given thin jumpsuits to wear with cheap ppg gear, nobody would wear the stuff as it was so hot in Iraq.
Back to MacGregor, by downplaying the very harmful effects of firing DU rounds, he excuses his own role in genocide. It was a sad moment to hear him talk with the judge, up till then I thought he was a good guy.
A few of the Abrams that were used in Iraq were subsequently sold to ‘2nd tier’ nations as display pieces; they had to be stripped back to bare metal, and even then they set off radiation detectors.
Turns out that the REMOVAL of DU armour creates enough free radioactive material to make the entire shell too radioactive for exposure to the public.
It seems to me that the amount of friction and wear&tear should be of concern to folks who crewed the ‘full amoured’ Abrams.
Basically the Iraqi theatre was like a bad day at the beach: you ended up with sand in orifices where you didn’t realise you had orifices.
Anyhow… DU 120mm packs a punch. That’s made real clear by the after-action reports from some blue-on-blue showdowns – e.g., when 1Bgd 3AD fucked up three Bradleys (A24, A31 and A22) from 4-7th Cav on Feb 26 1991.
The obvious question is “Why were comms so shit?”
Anyhooo… main point is that Tungsten cored munitions are easily as deadly: it’s just that the US military likes to wreak environmental devastation wherever they go… that;s why the US dumped TENS OF MILLIONS OF POUNDS of mustard gas, phosgene and other sketchy shit off the cost of Europe at the end of WWI; the same sort of shit off the coasts of Europe, AUSTRALIA (an ally) and otherplaces after WWII.
And of course they left 300 million cluster munitions on the ground in Laos, Cambodia and Viet Nam – as well as drenching the place in 4-2-5-T.
Anyhow… the Rooooskies will have to man up on ‘D’, and fuck up those UK tanks BEFORE they get to the LoC.
Should be straightforward: Russia’s got plenty of eyes, and loads of standoff capability.
Gloves off, chaps: the UK crossed a line, basically saying “We’re prepared to devastate Europe’s grain basket with radioactive byproducts”.
Destroying those tanks the moment they cross the Ukraine border should be a priority for the RF. Don’t even bother to get a photo for Instagram: just fuck them up.
Be more clear what the supposed effects of DU ammunition are.
1) Radioactivity. DU is radioactive but isn’t very radioactive.
2) Incendiary. When DU rounds hits metal, they ignite. But this isn’t why DU rounds exist. Pretty much any hard metal will ignite under the same circumstances – which are that impact produces dust which in turn is combustible as the metal dust particles oxidize. Tungsten rounds would ignite too, I believe.
3) Density. Very dense = more penetrating. This is the primary reason DU rounds exist.
4) Toxicity. Heavy metals in general are toxic; uranium is heavier than the traditionally termed heavy metals (lead, mercury etc).
What MacGregor said concerning long term effects was about radioactivity – he did not talk about 4) at all and mentioned 2) and 3) in the combat context.
And 4) is important if – as is demonstrable – that the radioactivity of DU is not highly significant as compared to say, an X-ray. Depleted uranium is about 40% less radioactive than unrefined uranium powder, for example.
If the toxicity of uranium as a heavy metal is an issue – the same issue applies to lead bullets or mercury primers. This applies to tungsten.
Clarity matters because no one can argue that heavy metal is poisonous and long lasting whether uranium, lead or whatever.
Conflating the toxicity negative effect – which will occur in any and all combat situations – vs. the radioactivity of DU is not helpful.
Here are some examples of DU shells and their birth defect results:
You really think that’s not a First Strike?
USAF used DU against rump Yugoslavia state in 1999 bombing campaign – in the two decades since throat cancers have seriously spiked in Serbia. This is medically documented – up in a marker of around 25%. DU has potential to contaminate the ground water table. You think the corporate manufactures and military clients will ever admit liability to this…lol…is same old corporate and political cover up of hazards as with corporate tobacco companies throughout twentieth century.
The case against Putin by the ICC is, and I kid you not, based solely from Twitter posts. Feel free to chase that up if you like.
but really says
And, I have read elsewhere that the ICC prosecutor is the brother of a disgraced UK MP who was jailed for the crie of pedophilia and released just before the prosecutor released the indictment. I apologise but I cannot remember where I read that, but it came with names and dates.
The US has at least admitted to seeing lower bone mineral density in DU exposed soldiers.
Joseph Adam-Smith says
Re the ICC arrest warrant. This is an article worth reading about the timing of the warrant (the Xi meeting) and the possibility of any potential ceasefire between Russia/Ukraine. Namely, anything signed by a potential criminal (Putin) would be null and void. Ie, fight on Ukrainians. We (the west) do not give a toss about you! https://simplicius76.substack.com/p/sitrep-31923-and-weekend-mailbag

Pym of Nantucket says
Keeping a balance of power is the key to keeping power hungry narcissists from getting in all the top positions. There has to be a culture of self governance and peer pressure against graft. Right now all the crooked people are rewarded so the whole mess is very difficult to rectify.
The world’s foremost manufacturing powerhouse allied with the world’s most advanced military. I think that sums it up.
Plus, over a hundred other countries happy to see the US get knocked off its pedestal. As per a previous segment, China’s economy, in terms of what its workers’ wages buy, is bigger than the US, and Russia’s is much larger than we give credit for. You can mess with statistics and measures, but the raw facts in the above statement hold sway.
Meanwhile, as an example, the US military has a significant percentage of pilots unfit for duty because of vaccine injuries (the FAA reduced standards and looked the other way), and you can bet they have a problem with the other services too. Add to that they can’t seem to recruit. Lots of odds and ends here that add up to much worse than the whole “woke” thing.
Plus, as Zerohedge reported, companies that had mandates are having trouble getting their workers back, and it’s looking like the vaccine injuries are showing up across the board. These are skilled, educated, trained workers that can’t be replaced by illegals. So, no, there will be no return of any significant manufacturing anytime soon to solve the supply chain crisis. And with the banks blowing up and inflation ready to kick into high gear on the printed bailouts, I’m not sure what the WEF will have left to run.
Nobody here thinks anything through, just believing in that manifest destiny crap I suppose, while the other guys play the long game and have manoeuvred us into a no-win situation. The dollar based Pnozi scheme requires constant exponential growth in demand for dollars, and, like any Ponzi scheme, can’t be tapered, so even a slowdown in demand will collapse it all. Slow at first, then suddenly, and uncontrollably. They’ll try the digital currency, but that will only help to control us, they’ll still lose global dominance.
Right now, the US and NATO look like the 3 stooges directing the Keystone cops. I can see why Putin and Xi smile a lot.
LaidBack Guy says
You talk of “vaccine injuries” being widespread, but provide no hard evidence to support the allegation. I call BS. Either provide documentary proof, or shut your yap.
I’d refer you to the evidence presented by Andrew Bridgen MP to the House of Commons on 17th March 2023. The text of his presentation and a list of supporting references for his previous speech in December 2022 can be found on his website www andrewbridgen com.
The UK statistics show serious harm caused to 1 in 800 jabbees.
Who the hell are you to tell anyone to shut their yap, Rob?
Just because you don’t know the facts of the matter, doesn’t mean others here are similarly ignorant.
But, there is one question you might could answer for us… Why is it you still believe the legacy corporate media and government officials when there is plenty of evidence they have been, and continue, lying about pretty much everything?
Just plain stupid is my guess.

Some of your readers are really … not really democrats. I would call this FC a fascist, directly.
Don’t stoop to their level, yo.
THEY’RE the sort of people who want discerning people – who did their research and said “Oh HELL no!” – to be either forced to be injected with that shit, and/or excluded from the workforce (and society).
Let ‘Rob’ run his idiot mouth for all he’s worth; it will just result in AMPLE refutation.
He’s not fooling anybody – not even himself; and anyone who is still a ‘Faucist’ these days has failed the exact same #OneQuestionIQTest, several times…
So let them all get twenty of thirty boosters: it means there will be less of them, and the future will have fewer of their imbecile offspring.
He likely convinced his family lovers and kids to get the shots. If the wax is a weapon. That means he just….. so obviously he will deny.
Compassion and patience is needed.
Unless they continue to side with fauci. Then just eject em in a helicopter that is not russian
also very interesting is the statistics of excess mortality in Europe
The most affected EU country, Germany, recorded an excess mortality rate of 37.3 %.
now explain this with climate change and a society that gets in average older ( thats what they actually tried to tell us )
37 % excess mortality in December I find thats quite something!
I think the vaccines will have effects on the population (specially those who got the booster shots) for many years to come
listen to this German Professor
quite scary and I dont think thats BS
But people like Rob cant wait to get their 6th booster shot….. good luck Rob!
You are the one that needs to shut up you moronic vaxtard.
There are literally millions of examples. Go get your sixth now like a good little sheep baaa baaa.
It is quite possible that Rob is in a state of resentment after getting his battery of shots. A buyers remorse.
It’s all over the internet but there are still retarted people who trust Fauci and the US government and in the EU its the same….
But hey each person is free to think whatever they want
You want proof? Get your ass out of your xxx and do the research yourself
It will be enlightening
Jack Gordon says
Either you know few people and read even less, or you’re jabbed and anxious about what you may have introduced into your body for no benefit at all. I’m betting it’s the latter. I know several people in the same trap.
Top Gum says
Hey Rob, show us please that covid vaccines are safe and for that matter why we were told, that we needed them in the first place for a flu virus that has a mortality rate of about 1.25% mostly for folks above 60 (the common flu has a mortality rate of about 0.5% in the same group of people).
Otherwise be civil or people here will show you the door quicker than you think.
FYI, mRNA vaccines never ever got an official appoval by authorities before covid, because they have way too many side-effects and last only for a few months at best. Authorities pulled products from circulation when they usually had more than 50 severe adverse reactions per year! Why didn’t they pull those so called covid vaccines, when they had people dying from them and also getting covid and even transmitting it?
This has an agenda written all over it. Science, medicine and common sense don’t apply here anymore all of the sudden. Odd, don’t you think?
TG, agreed. However one point, they are not vaccines and we need to stop using that misnomer.
A vaccine is constructed with dead or weakened organisms from the disease that you are trying to eliminate. The only actual vaccine that I have found are the vaccines created in Cuba. They followed the above description with two massive benefits. 1. the vaccine is extremely cheap to manufacture . 2. The vaccine does not need to have any refrigeration to store it . Cuba has been supplying these extremely efficient vaccines to third world countries, European, South and Central American countries’.
By the way, the WHO and the CDC have recently changed the wording of THEIR DESCRIPTION of a ‘Vaccine’, to suit their OWN mRNA-based, fully UNTESTED medicines, which they ‘FALSELY’ called, ‘Vaccines’.
These two criminal American corporations have caused the untimely deaths and misery to MILLIONS of trusting (FOOLISHLY), citizens’ from around the world.

Regarding your appallingly ignorant reply to Mac. PLEASE TAKE NOTE of the following i.e. the real evidence
On 02 November 2021, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis) convened a public meeting in the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington at which a panel of leading medical experts and doctors who had been treating COVID-19 vaccine injuries gave testimony about the injuries caused by the mRNA gene-editing poisons that are passed off as vaccines (they are not vaccines).
At that same public meeting there were also ten people who were severely injured by the poisons or who lost loved ones who died or suffered injury. It is not only heart-breaking to watch, but it beggars belief that given the plethora of incontrovertible evidence now presented to the world by countless leading medical experts along with countless testimonies of those injured by the poisons that there are still people like yourself who have astonishingly still manged keep your head buried somewhere dark where no truth resides and you are still somehow managing to deny the reality.
First here is the Press Release from Sen. Ron Johnson’s website announcing the then forthcoming panel discussion along with a list of the doctors and medical experts and a list of those who were severely injured or who lost loved ones.
Below is link to the 3hr 20min full video recording of the great crimes committed by Big Pharma and their lackey politician puppets they own in government who conducted the propaganda terror campaigns enforcing the jabs on the gullible unsuspecting population and by which they enforced health-debilitating mandates to wear masks and the enforced lock-downs which wreaked havoc and destroyed countless lives and multitudes of small businesses during which time the top billionaires wealth was multiplied as they were able to buy all the small to medium size businesses for pennies on the dollar
This from CBS
Billionaires got 54% richer during pandemic
and at following link you can find many more links to substantiate the massive stealth wealth transfer / theft that was just ONE part, albeit a major part, of the agenda that was purpose-designed by the elite gangsters who planned and set up the Plandemic (which was by the way just the opening starters – you are not going to believe what they are planning to unleash you next)
so now to the incontrovertible evidence that was presented at the public meeting held by Sen. Ron Johnson
Watch this and then if you have any decency you will post an apology to Mac.

LaidBack Guy says
Rob is a fucking troll. He got me on Larry’s “WHY CHINA NEEDS RUSSIA — ANDREI MARTYANOV EXPLAINS” article just prior to this one. Notice how Rob doesn’t contribute to the conversation, he just finds someone who expresses an opinion and then tries to call bullshit with “show me your evidence” or some form of whataboutism.
Don’t feed the trolls. Don’t respond. Don’t try to argue/debate with them. That is what they want: to waste your time with replies and to annoy everyone else with a running argument in the comments section between a normal person and a fucking troll.
Allan Mountain says
OK Rob may be troll doing exactly what you say – no argument there. He may also just be one of the multitudes of people who spend all their waking hours struggling to find ways to justify and confirm their cognitive dissonance so they can remain a secure member of the herd of half-brains who are too cowardly to even consider the possibility that they are sunk in a Truman Show of lies and deceptions.
However, what I really like about Larry Johnson’s Sonar21 is how it provides open forum for debate and argument and it is this process more than any other by which the good guys who read and regularly comment on this website are able to reply to the puke nonsense that Rob and others spew; and in doing so we get swap information and provide each other more good information which in turn hopefully will reach many others who are just waking up and struggling to find the real truth which Larry publishes along with all the great comments by his readers.
I recommend a daily Booster Shot for people like Rob.
Boost early, boost often.
This is a self-solving problem, no further intervention required.
Italy’s not mentioned but since the rollout it’s population has dropped by 2 million, mainly elderly so ending a huge amount in pension liabilities. It was widely reported beforehand that the vaccines were going to be toxic, one mrna expert at that time said he expected everyone who’s DNA was altered by the mrna vaccine, to produce the biological warfare agent ‘spike protien’ would be dead within 5 years. He has since rolled that back somewhat, but others have come forward to declare that those who’s DNA has been altered have a slim chance of concieving, carrying to term or producing viable children if female or producing viable sperm if male. This seems the bigger issue to me, whole families brought to an end.

If the “vaccines” are so safe, this Moderna executive testifying recently before Congress should be able to give at least one straightforward answer to pointed questions about vaccine safety. It’s painful to watch him, Dr. Fauci, and Pfizer executives lie and wiggle when facing such questions, the questions that never are asked by those righteous purveyors of political truth on MSNBC and CNN, and so ad nauseum.

Makes one wonder what goals will be accomplished when President Putin visits China later this year?
Roy Boey says
If US & NATO do not agree to such peaceful agreement on equal term, then Vhina & Russia should cooperate on all front – economic, military & political fronts along with all friendly nations.
Lou Brooks says
I have waited for this moment since BRICS kicked off years ago. I saw the handwriting on the wall but did not know how long it would take. The West screwed up on enforcing years of sanctions against who ever they were displeased with. With the collective West losing its mind over Ukraine and factually stealing the financial resources of Russia and Russian citizens, increased sanctions against Russia, and threats against any nation or person that violated those sanctions, the West has now really screwed itself. Who the hell would ever want to do business with America or in American dollars? Only a fool.
China and Russia are using the Yuan as trade currency, Indonesia is urging citizens to move away from the Western credit card system, other nations are considering trading in Ruble and Yuan. My one question now is how will the West rid itself of the neocons, war mongers and the central bank?
AUKUS was a hugh, hugh mistake and will only drive China, Russia, and India to patrol and protect that part of the world from the West. Eventually the only allies the U.S. will have left are Australia, New Zealand, Canada and, maybe a few Euro nations.
Bill Osborne Jr says
Hopefully, we will live to see the day that the Necons are forced to climb the 13 steps. The banks will probably just go away like Credit Suisse. Everything not nailed down will have been stolen. Should have watched less TV will probably describe future historian’s first observation. We voted for it, did not appose it, did not pay attention, and got what we deserved. Our demise will be celebrated.
My one question now is how will the West rid itself of the neocons, war mongers and the central bank? — Lou Brooks
And one hell of a question it is Lou.
Putin specifically mentioned this problem for the peoples of the west, saying it was up to us to solve it. He is defending Russia (and the rest of the world, by default) and although he (and China) may well destroy the Empire of Lies financially and economically, that does not mean he will (or can) effect regime change in whatever governance remains in its various nations.
He recognizes that western elites would rather rule in hell than relinquish power. The key point for us, as citizens of a falling empire, is simple: If the elite and their handmaidens choose not to engage Russia directly, they will remain in power within their respective nations.
So where does that leave us?
Although I like what he says, I simply do not think Trump can accomplish his goal of removing the deep state from power, for obvious reasons.
Thus, it appears we have three cascading choices: Try to vote our way out of this (important in setting the political stage and agenda); radical non-violence and non-compliance (seize the moral and legal high ground); and finally, civil war (defend ourselves).
Learn to garden says
After two years of thinking about this I have formed the theory that we are like “high-class” drunks, the kind who get plastered on top shelf booze or wine, drinking it from cut crystal glasses. We think we are sophisticated and smart, when we are no different than any bum going facedown in the gutter. Until we hit rock bottom, and have leaders rise who will tell us the truth about ourselves, and challenge us to get sober, nothing will change. And even then a very large percentage will prefer dying in that gutter. Right now people like Larry, and the people who read him and others like him, are prophets in the wilderness. But you all give me hope.
Well,. give up on the voting bit. The PTBs have so brainwashed the people. Ask yourself, when was the last time you read anything true in the MSM? Exactly how does one build any sort of a movement from that? Options 2 and 3 depend on each other. Malcolm X understood it well. And give up on the legal high ground in option 2 as well.
Push has already come to shove. Anything like truth is already so well hidden and obfuscated good luck finding more than a handful of allies. There’s a simplicius article maybe a month ago about the digitalization of the battlefield; that is what anyone who even dissents is up against.
However, a single drop of water or a single bead of sweat or a single tear contains the whole universe. Give up attachment to outcomes. Begin.
Mentioned nothing about outcomes; merely described the primary sequence stages from electoral political involvement (you are here, now), to principled non-violent resistance (slowly beginning, will accelerate after 2024 elections) and, finally, the USG’s retribution and backlash in response…
This isn’t rocket science… it’s simply a description of what we are currently experiencing, and an opinion of its most likely progression in an action-reaction chain of events.
Third time will be the charm in the 2024 elections — ~70 million populists understand that both electoral (uni-party) politics and vote counting systems are rigged. They also understand the US military’s land forces are configured and optimized for counter-insurgency/anti-terrorism operations (which focus on civil populations), hence the second stage of progression. Which leads to the third stage, since the USG will use its police, intelligence and military forces against any effective domestic political opposition, even if non-violent.
The deep state needs to sink Trump now. Not because he, himself, is necessarily an existential threat, but because they see him as the head of a populist “snake”. Because the longer he campaigns as a populist, the more widespread that populist message is broadcast and the harder it is for the deep state to maintain control and manufacture consent.
Consent is the battleground. Like confidence, once lost it is difficult to re-establish.
you can always count on the loyalty of the Italian governments…
until you lose.
“AUKUS was a hugh, hugh mistake” agreed. But opposition is brewing -perhaps led by former PM Paul Keating. Time will tell, but the cost is mind bending.

Stanley Dundee says
Also the ICC indictment of Putin another attempt to sabotage the meeting.
James K says
No offense but talk is cheap — just like this whole little joint “statement” of theirs.
Where’s the actual *action* from China on this?
Merely circumventing a couple of pointless US-demanded sanctions against Russia (that have little to no effect anyway, and the US ultimately won’t do anything about either) is just child’s play.
What “action” are you looking for that you are unable (unwilling?) to see the whole landscape shift?
Not just China and Russia, but Iran, Saudi Arabia, the continent of Africa, etc.
Even the President of Mexico just openly called America “liars”.
When your enemy is making a mistake, don’t interrupt him.
What action from China would satisfy you? For that matter why would Chinese ‘action’ at this point help their position?
These retards we put in power are single-handedly reversing Kissinger’s triangulation after the Sino-Soviet split. Without which, would America have won the cold war? Would China have implemented a one child policy?
No. Globalist Liberals would have been put in their place long ago, and Multipolarity would have emerged that much sooner.
James K says
@Elial — landscapes shift with strong actions not strong words.
@Randolorian — Actions such as the production of arms (firearms, artillery, military-specific electronics, etc) + sharing of intelligence (e.g., satellite, reconnaissance, drone operated by China) with Russia and obviously, of course, *excluding* such benefits from enemies of Russia (so you know China doesn’t end up trying to play “both sides” merely just to make itself a profit!).
The changes are like a freight train gathering speed, which began moving somewhere (IMHO) between 2008 and 2014. During this period, Russia began sanction proofing their economy and developing the next generation of weapons for peer conflict (while the US focused on IED protection).
Covid and the economic mismanagement by the west accelerated these changes, amplified by US policy being run by diverse factions hidden behind an empty shell and teleprompter.
You are correct about this meeting being a key signpost.
Having watched China build a real – not tent – infectious hospital in 10 days, and how fast Russia built the Kerch bridge, I expect the Power of Siberia 2 pipeline will be ready even sooner than 2025.
and the gas will never return to Europe, and without energy, Europe will dwindle in importance.
The Saudi’s are very perceptive about changes in the wind direction (victory has a thousand sons, and defeat spawns orphans).
Deplorable Dave says
I truly regret that stupid joke I told, only one time, when I was drunk, involving Russian women.
I realize now I misunderstood the actual joke, which is about French men.
Please accept my humble apologies.
Your humble apology is accepted. The cruise missile was diverted to Kiev. You are forgiven and pardoned for your aggression toward our beautiful Russian women. However, I am reliably informed that Maria Z still harbors some hard feelings.
Forgive me, but you may add to your 10 point list another point.
11. International Criminal Court’s (ICC) decision to indict President Putin.
Stolen elections that are tolerated by the people have grave consequences. This illegitimate Biden regime is destroying the world and no one is stopping them.
“The world’s foremost manufacturing powerhouse allied with the world’s most advanced military.” Very beautifully said. The latter is also the world’s richest natural resources country. Now to make matters even much much worse for the Biden team, today both Iran and Saudi Arabia are getting fully integrated within Russia-China multi-polar world order system. Good old India ready to join next. Thanks.
Question : Blinken keeps demanding ‘Russians’ evacuation all of occupied Ukraine.
Is Blinken demanding some 10 million people be ethnically cleansed ?
Blinken is such a moron, and that name is perfect for him.
Blink, blink, blink. He can’t believe what is happening in panavision right in front of him, so he shuffles and stumbles from one fancy conference to another reading from the script he memorized that morning and trying to act smart. He is so out of his league.
Although he fits right in with the rest of them since none of them understand statecraft, and it shows.
Let’s all hope this is the moment many have been waiting for. The West has long been run by a shadowy cabal of unelected power brokers. Chuck Schumer’s open admission” that the intelligence agencies have 6 ways from Sunday” to take down a Presidency should have horrified any sane individual. Instead he was cheered on by the weaponized Western media and their gullible readers. Critical thinking anybody?
With the exception of Hungary, the Ukraine war has removed any trace of legitimacy of European democracy. The people of these countries so easily fall for the transparent propaganda that that is past off as independent news in the West, their leaders exposed as satraps of of illegitimate forces.
The Iraqi war was a “mistake” v Stalin was the second most evil man ever. Stalin Stalin Stalin is all we hear about Russia, he has been dead for 70 years. Madeline “half a million dead children is a price worth paying” Albright (not our children of course). Her funeral was attended by most senior Western politicians.
Stalin destroyed Hitler and the Nazi’s at terrible cost to the Russian people. Hitler was a man that was supported by the likes of Joseph Kennedy and financed by the likes of Prescot Bush. Saddam Hussein was merely a later an far less destructive version. Blowback m…..f….. .
While many Americans drink unsafe water, suffer declining life expectancy and falling educational and living standards, a tiny minority lead lives of unimaginable wealth and privilege.
IF the Russians and the Chinese can replace this with something mildly better it will be a success. I wish them well with their project. I think they will do much better than that.
And they will let you keep your guns because they don’t interfere in local matters.
Наталья Волкова says
At some moment it will be necessary to reorganize the media because this must stop feeding the masses the usual delusional propaganda.
I will hope that one day articles in publications can be written by people like you that truly capture the realities of life through time.
I learned a lot from your comment, thank you.
“At some moment..”
It has been ongoing in most moments since 1969 mostly facilitated by silence to encourage “opponents” to fill “the void” with pre-programmed speculations.
Moments in the process have included but have not been limited to:
The lateral processes of Russian education in myriad forms and increasing application since 1969 with the aid of “opponents” to finance some of the study aids.
The relatively recent Constitution of The Russian Federation and how it was agreed.
Thank you for the compliment but it is our host Mr Johnson and his friends that should take all the credit.
I merely plough through different narratives and apply some critical thought. Some narratives are inconsistent, contradictory, deceptive and plain dishonest. Some are consistent, sensible and reliable.
Sure people make mistakes and get things wrong. This is especially true when there is little verifiable information available and one has to speculate. In these cases
when further fact appear honest people will be transparent and corrections will be made. Doubling down on the same old lies is propaganda.
I’m afraid it takes quite a while of consistent daily reading to build up a general picture of what is going on, who’s narrative fits the facts once they are known versus who’s narrative doesn’t.
Once you see who is a liar (WMD) why would you trust them again? When the Democrats pilloried W Bush for his presidency why do the Obama’s cuddle up with him afterwards. People say that’s just politics. They’re damn right!
Finally, always check for lies of omission. See which news organisations fail to cover events that discredit their own narrative.
We are privileged to be living through a unique period in human history. Technological knowledge is growing at an exponential rate. If we survive as a species is debatable but you should sit back and enjoy the ride.
Another great article Mr Johnson, now I will have to find my blood pressure medication.
Juan Valdez says
Unless America drops its stated position of “Full Spectrum Dominance” over land, sea, air and space, nothing will change for the better. Since the odds of that happening are zero, what we can look forward to is America doing what it does best – destabilizing any country that dares to oppose us, by any means necessary.
It is wishful thinking to believe those who control the levers of power in this country are going to somehow see the light and play nice.
Not. Going. To. Happen.
We are more dangerous now than ever, precisely because the Russians and Chinese are aligning their interests. This isn’t viewed as anything but a threat and it will be dealt with – even if that means killing tens of millions of people.
We aren’t ruled by people who care about us, or something lofty like “humanity”. They care only about maintaining their mastery of the universe.
We’ve spent tens of trillions of $ on our military-surveillance complex over many decades. There is NO WAY this much money has been spent only to have us get our wings clipped by anyone. We will use every means at our disposal to remain dominant. Both political parties are in lockstep on this.
Clearly, we have no moral qualms about staring wars and killing millions. Or blowing up major infrastructure of even our “friends”. The swath of destruction and mayhem we can create in any sort of non-U.S. based coalition of countries is enormous. And, clearly, we don’t care who gets crushed in the process.
We are Rome – but with thousands of nuclear weapons, 800 military bases around the globe, and God only knows what else tucked away for a rainy day.
And it’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.
Eric Newhill says
Agree, Juan. People here exhibiting so much exuberance over a potential (talk is cheap) alliance between Russia and China are lost in some kind of foolish dream.
Despite their fantasies of being prepared for a shit hits the fan 10 to 20 year cycle, most would not survive a total collapse of the west – as in they would literally die an untimely death, along with their families and friends. Be careful what you wish for, especially when your wishes are born of hatred. The right way to deal with the corruption of the west and the US in particular is not to rely on Russia and China to destroy it (some here even relish the vision of Russian missiles hitting US cities). No. The right way would be for US citizens to take the country back. Russia and China, especially China, are not our friends and never will be. They will look out for their respective nations and do whatever is in their best interests, even if that means Americans dying en masse.
Furthermore, if Russia and China actually do become an all powerful alliance that walks the walk, there will not be world peace. Nope. Just more war and pain and destruction, only this time brought about by that alliance. The US must remain at least as powerful as either of those nations and those nations combined. The idea that Russia and China are non-self- interested and non-aggressive is childish. The idea of peace on earth and good will to all mankind is never going to happen. It’s not what the earth and humans are all about.
But yes, you’re correct, of course. The US isn’t going to just roll over and play dead; not while there is still ample opportunity to exert its perceived power to stop the loss of hegemony. That means that the conflict is going to escalate, as I have been predicting, to the most extreme serious levels – assuming that the Western governments take the Putin/Xi meeting as seriously as people here do. Let’s see how many of Putin’s “red lines” get crossed now and whether or not Putin grows a pair and finally effectively backs up his threats, aided by his new best buddy, or if he wimps out as usual. I assure you that kind of test is going to be implemented by the west.
Top Gum says
“Russia and China, especially China, are not our friends and never will be.”
You don’t need to be friends with everyone, if people do respect you. The US leadership has in fact no friends. They heave either vassals or enemies. That is how they see it and act on others.
No wonder their citizens see enemies in everyone else. Eventually you get what you put in.
Eric Newhill says
Respect, in international relations = fear of your power and/or what they can do for you.
Who (nations) “respects” China? No one.
Who “respects” Russia? Maybe a few, but will quickly become 0 if they blow this confrontation with west, which has a real probability of happening if they’re not able to stay balanced on the razor’s edge they’ve made themselves walk.
So a Russia/China alliance would need to throw its weight around economically and militarily until one day we find them playing exactly the role the US is accused of playing for the past 70 years. That role corrupts. It’s too bad that the US government became populated with satanic freak elitists because the US previously managed that role in a far more noble manner than China ever would. Russia, by itself, is too weak to do it. It would be a Chinese centric world with Russia as a side kick with lots of resources to be exploited by China. No thank you – and I’m sure the Russians don’t want to be controlled by a bunch of autocratic non-Christian Han ant colony people. If there is to be an alliance, it will be temporary. More’s the shame. I have always thought that, post Soviets, the US and Russia are natural allies – together we could crush the damn Chinese down to where they belong + the damn Muslim terrorists + the degenerate Europeans. Unfortunately we (the US) joined the degenerates.
James K says
China is respected by anyone like the US (along with India + others too) who is very dependent on it as a trading partner. Russia is respected by anyone who enjoys it as a trading partner as well (cheap energy and grain are nice, aren’t they?) — minus the risk of pissing off the US nowadays for not going along with the sanctions (not that China + much of the non-NATO/EU/Australia/Japan/South-Korea might care about those however).
Also assuming “China” will necessarily dominate a Russian-Chinese alliance is downright foolish. Yes, China has the bigger economic base (while Russia may or may not be richer in certain resources), but in the end this will boil down to who will assert oneself over the other militarily — or, perhaps neither will need to do so at all, as both governments can work together mutually instead. As I mentioned before, “peace and prosperity” through “multipolarity” (a theme Putin has been talking about for a while now although not surprising given Russia’s situation, however).
This dill has learned nothing, it still spews typical trailer trash white supremacist ignorance and racist hatred:
“Han ant colony people”
“we could crush the damn Chinese down to where they belong”
“+ the damn Muslim terrorists”
“+ the degenerate Europeans”
Juan Valdez says
“It’s too bad that the US government became populated with satanic freak elitists because the US previously managed that role in a far more noble manner than China ever would.”
The generation before my own were all tempered by the Great Depression and WWII. They were educated in a system that rewarded academic excellence (and actually punished failure). They read books. Classic liberalism and conservatism were political philosophies that had a commonly understood meaning. They shared a common understanding of America’s history. They certainly weren’t ashamed to be Americans. They trusted government and other institutions. Men were men and women were women. To question such a basic reality would’ve (rightly) resulted in being committed to an insane asylum. It’s not that they were morally superior – indeed, I was born into a racially segregated country that also had many other problems – but their life experience was shaped by titanic global events and personal hardship. They had a notion of giving their children a better life and that hard work was what was needed to achieve it.
That time and the people that it produced no longer exists.
The people now populating the U.S. government are what Kurt Vonnegut called “upper crust C-students who know no history or geography”. They’ve never known truly hard times. They came of age in world where the U.S. had no superpower rival and everybody got a trophy. They’ve been able to act with impunity and spend trillions of $ with no concern. They’re hollowed out spiritually and that vacuum has been filled with every manner of crackpot nonsense. They have no understanding of the world and really no concern for anything but their own power. Many could be rightly classified as psychopaths, sociopaths and narcissists. By any past measure, they’re just plain stupid.
So here we are.
James K says
No offense but domestic corruption in the modern world can pretty much only be taken down *externally* by foreign powers. Modern-day people are too weak to “retake” (or “reign in”) their governments anyway, especially in any First-World nations.
And also, to be fair, there is a possibility that Russia + China “rising” to becoming a global power sufficiently close in power to the US could instead create an incentive for the US to “clean up its act” domestically in the meantime during that whole process. Of course, what happens *after* that, however, is less clear…
Similar to the theory as to how some “competition” can help create value in a capitalist economy.
In fact, that seems almost the ideal — rather than bloody conflicts, have instead a “Cold War” type of situation with the US led by a “Reagan-like” figure thinning down the government creating greater domestic wealth in the process. “Peace and prosperity” through multipolarity, so to speak…
Eric Newhill says
If the people are too weak, then they don’t deserve, nor can handle, good governance. The US is supposed to be governance for, of and by the people.
James K says
1) “If the people are too weak, then they don’t deserve, nor can handle, good governance” — then try telling those “strong” people locked up in jail for protesting on January 6th what they “deserved” and see how closely it matches with “what they actually got instead”.
2) “The US is supposed to be governance for, of and by the people.” Haha — well good luck but no serious civilization is actually like that. And by serious I mean actual huge populations (with significant pockets of density) with central governments too instead of just little isolated collections of villages / settlements / homesteads / whatever (that would just be merely conveniently “self-governing” already anyway from all that whole isolation / lack of interference by strong forces). And even the ones calling themselves “democracies” — well, you know that can be defrauded anyway too…
Eric Newhill says
Working on your social ranking there, Grrr, like a good ant colony subject? Mustn’t say the wrong thing less your Han masters un-person you and take you away to be re-educated.
I understand you hate freedom and self-governance. Some us don’t.
I would argue we are the Ottoman empire, whose collapse was precipitous, thanks to believing our own propaganda and our hollowed-out financialized economy. THere are other cultural parallels.
And the Ottoman empire crashed down in military conflict.
I agree on the “no soft landing.”
No formal Defense alliance but an implied one 🙂 is good for all who wish to see NATO consigned to the dustbin of history.
◾️ The Russian Federation and China are concerned about the military-biological activities of the United States, they demand clarification on this matter;
This benefits people of the whole world especially if they are aware of the roles Faucci Gates and WHO have played creating the World Economic Forum´s partners Bio Security Industrial dictatorship that took power over all constitutional rights in most nations of the world in 2020 using products NATO labs researched with alleged contributions from PFizer in particular. Ron Unz wrote most clearly of the bio weapons role in initial Wuhan and Tehran simultaneous outbreaks of lethal covid.
Hopefully Russia -China can now clean up and eliminate the UN´s partnership with profitable businesses like the World Economic Forum and World Health Organization and otherways render the Davos oligarchs harmless with BRICS+ & SCO ethical win-win leadership of the world community.
This is actually in line with scenario’s what I was looking for in the comments section a couple of articles back.
I was wondering why the western leaders all had the s— eating grins on their faces when they are losing badly.
This Biological stuff has a high probability of being the ace up their sleeve that causes them to grin like a fox in a hen house that has yet to be destroyed.
Which really bodes ill for the entire world if it turns out to be so.
“This Biological stuff has a high probability of being the ace up their sleeve that causes them to grin like a fox in a hen house that has yet to be destroyed.”
But apparently unlike you, some including some opponents, have studied Presidential decree number 355 of The Russian Federation and its clarifications from 3rd June 2020 to date.
You may be able to apply for a copy through http://en.kremlin.ru/ although all of the clarifications may not be available through that website due to extensive throughputs.
In respect of the conditions agreed by the Security Council, I agree that if deemed appropriate given that all die at some point, it is a reasonable reason to die.
When Mr. Putin was asked the question in relation to the subject: “How would you feel in such a situation?” he answered “REIGHTEOUS”
Appatrently you are not alone, which may afford some comfort and solace.
“Apparently you are not alone,”
Yeah, so I see. – https://tass.com/politics/1593051
Bill Gates has predicted the next pandemic will arrive in 2024 and he hopes all nations of the UN will sign up their populations for the mandatory participation World Health Organization pandemic measures and vaccines one size cures and prevention measures fits all.
If Russia and China sign up then let the WHO medicate their populations then Davos takes over the world with all shots fired by syringes !
Western leaders of the defacto 4th Reich mostly believe the Davos narratives (ie 2023 is the year of polycrises) and those that graduated WEF leadership programs believe that they are implementing The Great Reset without Russia and China
There is a reason China and Russia both built permanent infectious disease hospitals, not tents in a convention center parking lot to protect the dying from the rain.
There is a lot of complaining in Russia and internationally that the process of liberation is so slow. I do not exclude myself from this. On the one hand, we media consumers do not have all the information, and on the other hand, it must be in the interest of all sane people that there is no nuclear war. Unfortunately, one must also reckon with the fact of the irrationality of Western decision-makers.
Shortly before the 2014 Winter Games, I saw an interesting interview of a Russian journalist with Putin. The question came why Russia and unnamed partners do not immediately destroy the US dollar as the world reserve currency. The answer was very interesting and consisted of two parts. With Putin, one should always listen carefully.
Part 1 of the answer was that Russia unfortunately had to invest too many resources in the military. Putin was very sorry that these resources were not available for the civilian development of the still underdeveloped regions of the giant country. The realization of this task seemed to be his lifelong dream.
Part 2 of the answer was that it is not in Russia’s interest to throw the world into chaos. Billions of people would become destitute or even die. The process of fighting the U.S. dollar could not consist in a spontaneous action. One would have to proceed cautiously and step by step.
This is the answer of an empathetic and responsible leader.
Andrei Martyanov always calls them the “adults”. In contrast to the hysterical and hyperventilating teenagers in the West.
Anyone who knows a little about East Asian culture knows that the Chinese are verbally reticent. But this reticence should not be mistaken for passivity. The opposite is the case.
“This is the answer of an empathetic and responsible leader.”
No leadership and some of the “polymaths” have been a collective from inception – When some local idiots invaded Czechoslovakia in 1968 hardening the resolve of some wise co-operators, and some wise co-operators restructured the KGB starting in 1971.
“There is a lot of complaining in Russia and internationally that the process of liberation is so slow.”
Only if like foreigners you limit Russia primarily to Moscow and St. Petersburg and those who have imbued “Western” models of acceptable tempos.
If America had stuck to its foreign policy doctrine of non-entanglement in European and world affairs that had been pretty much the standard up to Dec. 7, 1941(with the exception of the WW 1 intervention), the United States of America would not find itself on the precipice of its impending decline and even possible destruction. Who have been those behind the scenes working in the shadows with Woodrow Wilson first and then Franklin Roosevelt to change the course of the US’s destiny???
peppe, re your “foreign policy doctrine of non-entanglement in European and world affairs that had been pretty much the standard up to Dec. 7, 1941” you may want to refresh your memory, or take off the blindfold.

Jorge Nunes says
An excellent article with precise and clarifying information. In my country (Portugal), international political analysts chosen by television continue to give wrong and very partial leads. This agreement between Russia and China, in addition to being huge, is the biggest revelation that we are living in a new era. The British themselves are making a huge mistake by supplying weapons with depleted uranium to the Ukrainian Nazi military. If this proves to be true, the English will pay dearly for this mistake.
Air sampling indicates that depleted uranium is already being used in Ukraine and is contaminating air in Europe and the UK. So the UK will just be poisoning their own citizens even more.
Uranium levels in all the onsite and offsite High Volume Air Samplers deployed by the Atomic Weapons Establishment Aldermaston, UK increased significantly in the period beginning with the start of the Ukraine War. This supports the belief that Uranium weapons are being deployed in the theatre and that the fallout of Uranium nanoparticles, has contaminated Europe and the United Kingdom.
Given the epidemiological and theoretical scientific evidence emerging in the last twenty years that Uranium particle exposure health effects cannot be safely predicted or explained using the current radiation risk models, this finding has serious public health implications. The finding may contribute to an urgency for discussions to end the war.
Clear that this marks the end of the post 1989 Unipolar Moment and of the American Century.
My fear is that the empire will not end quietly. Arguably, both WW1 and WW2 were at least in part about the relative decline of the British Empire and the rise of both Germany and the US as Great Powers. The decline of empires is often bloody. Would be good to avoid a WW3.
Fascinatingly, the USSR is one of the very few empires that died with very limited conflict, albeit there were negative consequences for many people especially in Russia. But Russia is given no credit for this by mainstream western commentators.
“Fascinatingly, the USSR is one of the very few empires that died with very limited conflict”
The question from 1969 was:
How to drown a drowning man with the minimum of blowback ?
“The Soviet Union” was never a union of soviets and hence did not die but remains in a process of transcendence with reducing half-lives of some components and increasing half-lives of other components, aided and attended by good, but not perfect, masses of midwives who were not all women or citizens of “The Soviet Union”.
The May 9th Procession of “The Immortal Regiment” is a limited recognition of that – a “co-operation” of The Russian Federation.
Peter S. says
And there we have it. In plain and simple truth and honesty.
Now – it comes down to the “money”. Will the Neocons push the button to “preserve” the USD and USA hegemony?
This is the question.
As a Hungarian, the event credited to lead to the fall of The Wall in Berlin, was the Paneurepan Picnic.
Now, we have something similar – at the time, I cannot tell where and how the dominoes will fall:
(With the obligatory Orbán-bashing at the end, of course 🙂 )
Putin stated that….”We are in favor of using the Chinese yuan for settlements between Russia and the countries of Asia,Africa,and Latin America.”. …the death of the U.S dollar is now assured but what will a wounded and desperate beast do when cornered? God help us all
Lou Brooks says
I read that statement as well. It is a clear shot across the bow of U.S. and Euro Central Bankers notifying them of their demise. At the same time, China is being set up as the world currency for the next fifty plus years. The U.S. dollar is in the coffin and being carried to the grave.
Eric Newhill says
So the Chinese will be the reserve currency. Yeah sure, that will work out well. The Chinese are such noble, fair and freedom loving people. Putin is proving to be an idiot.
Everyone is noble, fair and freedom loving compared to you.
Clement Waine says
assuming that the statement above by the two leaders is official, I hate to say but it is badly written – no logical/sequential order. The statement should focus on the RF-China interests and what they want to achieve in the near term and then on the Ukraine, and other regions. It appears to be done in haste and may indicate that the two nations are still further apart on many issues.
* paragraphs 1, 5 and 8 relate to Ukraine – why space them out like that?
* paragraphs 2 and 3 on AUKUS – this indicates Chinese concerns about this security arrangement
There are several inconsistent flow of thoughts in this statement.
Importantly, it appears Russia is willing to negotiate peace in Ukraine but on its own terms (Russia is obviously wining so it does not need to negotiate right now as proposed by China).
Kishida was in New Delhi also for a one day trip to convince Modi to change his mind – Modi being Modi, gave kishida some snacks and soft drinks and send him on his way – If Abe was alive , this humiliating spectacle of a once great nation running around as the errand boy of a disintegrating hegemon wouldn’t have come to pass
One can’t but notice that the agreements between China and Russia are mostly constructive and peace oriented while the US responds with aggression.
In fact, the whole Western Culture has been coopted with a woke ideology that is designed to pit groups against each other. It’s a divide and conquer strategy designed to distract from the looting and pillaging taking place by our new overlords.
Mike D. says
“When you harness human’s tendency for conflict you better be sure you can protect your self from it. ” I don’t sense that the elites have got that one figured out. Sure the top government officials but the rest. ….playing golf, driving out to dinner. BLM and Antifa will bsrbecue them.
Sandy K says
How sad it is that so many here now believe they are living in a country in which they no longer believe aligns with their own personal ethics and philosophies. I no longer recognise the country for which I gave my service in Vietnam. I think I have more in common with the non-aligned countries under pressure from the rapidly diminishing US hegemony than my own country of citizenship. Given we still have a viable world economy in 2024 I will be looking for a new home. I wonder where to begin to look. Any ideas?
Curt Nichols says
Same boat here Sandy. My military service was in Germany and South America. I am waiting till I lose my beloved Malinois Stella, and then I am gone. I am studying a few options.
The Philippines has a very high English language usage. And the cost of living is very low. I am not hurting for money, but my money would go a helluva lot farther there.
Thailand intrigues me, but the language is incomprehensible to me, and English is not widespread there.
South America is still an option, and I speak limited Spanish already. I’ve just been there and done that a lot.
My actual plan is to just wander. I was infantry and I earned to travel light. I can live with a laptop and backpack very easily.
Phuket for a year, then Manila, then Cartagena? Who knows. A lot like you say is my own freaking country. It is literally turning into an Orwellian surveillance police state. Say what you will about the Third World, they at least don’t crawl up your ass with a flashlight for a Facebook post.
The Philippines has turned into a fascist bio security dictatorship, a friend has aborted his retirement there and is back here freezing in winters again. I have friends with second homes in Thailand – there is a massive english speaking expat community enjoying cheap food & drink in great weather there but its a very bad choice if you like smoking weed with local cops upto trickery but India is good for weed.
Retirement is also about being around people you want to share everyday with which is the best reason to go take a look……
“Thailand intrigues me, but the language is incomprehensible to me, and English is not widespread there. ”
It’s easy to pick up many phrases, and English is widespread, to varying degrees. The best food and woman in Asia too. And they generally don’t have the reverse chrysalis that Latino women suffer from.
Turkey is a popular very affordable choice for European pensioners – they may welcome Americans too ! Russell Texas Bentley would welcome you in Donbass if you want a new purpose in life as a vet! Cyprus or Greece is also a wonderful place to retire but not so cheap. If you want to live on a boat the Carribean is great. The Philippines has turned into a fascist bio security dictatorship, a friend has aborted his retirement there and is back here freezing in winters again
Don’t forget the meme that Xi was going to compel Putin to end the war.
China and Russia “Just say no” to imperialism.
Note they don’t started a war to imperialism (war against the machine will be our fight to wage) they just declared independence from it.
What entertaining times to lives in 🙂
Lou Brooks says
Europe have been so screwed by the U.S. when the Nord Stream lines were destroyed. Not just Germany but all of Europe were screwed by their puppet masters in D.C., London and Belgium. Russia and China are working out the Power of Siberia 2 energy project to deliver 50 billion cubic meters of gas each year to China. This level of supply exceeds what would have been delivered to Europe via the NS2.
I strongly suspect that Russia will deliver only enough gas to Europe to keep Europe needing to over pay for LNG from America and other countries. Western Europe is being position for a great collapse and a long term collapse.
The BRICS consortium will continue to bring in other nations that want peaceful and economic stability and that will only drive the West into deeper despair when the U.S. dollar is no long of any value to the world. I will not be surprised to see some of the European countries such as Hungary, Romania, and even Moldova position themselves with Russia. They will soon realize it is better to face east than to face west.
Curt Nichols says
Kissinger, the most blood-soaked butcher this world has ever seen, knew. You HAVE to keep Russia and China apart. Or the game is over. He tried to tell the idiots when this started. They did not listen. Butcher, or not. He is not a fool and has played the game for decades and won.
And they have made it even worse. China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, North Korea, Africa. With India implicitly added. Because they know who is winning. All united in raw hatred and knowledge of the insanity of the USA death machine.
And on our side? Canada and the Euro fools. And watch the news. Canada is insignificant. Protests grow by the day in Europe. Even the German cucks are waking up. They didn’t freeze to death this winter because of an incredibly mild winter. But industry is shutting down daily. The governments are broke because they are subsidizing the energy flows that have now tripled in price. Credit Suisse is not an outlier.
Matter of time now. As Dandy Don would have crooned. “Turn out the lights, the parties over”.
Clement Waine says
The Party is Over!
NATO is being defeated in Ukraine.
Vitality is shifting to EurAsia.
NATO is dead.
EU will bifurcate.
Core Euroland (Germany, France, others) will join EurAsia
Peripheral Europe will move to a new North Atlantic Union.
We are living in exciting times!
Michael Droy says
” The loss of American influence in the world is not going to happen overnight, but the process has started.”
I disagree. I think it has happened. That historians will talk about events in 2000s and 2010s as the key factors and give an end of US hegemony as a date before 2020.
The key event was the change from media discussing truths to discussing talking points only that happened around 2015/16. That was when US/European concepts of reality were separated from the rest of the world.
Off topic, Deborah Armstrong has found a genuinely funny Zelensky piece performed in Latvia 2016 (another example of Art replacing life in the media).
Zelensky satirising Poroshenko, which is deeply ironic given he went on to campaign as the anti-Poroshenko and then convert into an uber- Poroshenko.
Good bye to the old Master…hello to the new Master…nothing will change…this slows down the goals of the WEF but, imho, the basic goal is shared by China…it’s just a question of who’s on top…Sorry, China is no good guy.
How did we get in to this mess of increased domestic corruption which exploded over the past 30 years? These dreadful foreign policies? Maybe it was bringing those nazis over after WWII and being infected by their ethnic baggage and thought processes. Maybe it was all those hardcore commie immigrants from the former USSR. Maybe it was all those Eastern European immigrants with their ethnic baggage, also infecting our State Department.
Don’t like the methods of the CIA? Who trained them? Who created that monster?
Sorry….humans are humans…they are what they are….The king is dead. Long live the king. The only thing which will change is who is in the driver’s seat. Be careful what you wish for.
Writings like these are a proof that Russians are indeed the good guys.
Anton P says
The more United States delay their recognizing that multipolar world is a reality, the more they will be in disadvantage when it reaches the time of forced acceptance. They are losing a unique opportunity to insert themselves in an advantageous point of view, but their greed doesn’t allow this kind of pragmatism. Actually, they are risking survival or becoming a third-world country very soon, only by their fault.
Take a visit to my substack dedicated to combat russophobia:
“They are losing a unique opportunity to insert themselves in an advantageous point of view, but their greed doesn’t allow this kind of pragmatism.”
You forgot the co-operators in the multi-polar activities, their agency and their rights.
Until the coercive relations self-misrepresented as “The United States of America” are transcended, it is unlikely they will be invited to co-operate since they have consistently shown themselves to be co-operation incapable.
Big Lie repeated near an infinite amount of times: “The US is necessary as the world/s policeman.”
The US as policeman like the Chicago cops who helped Capone “rationalize” Chicago’s illicit booze trade, and later assist “rationalize” drugs and prostitution, and eventually use squadrols to carry off the loot from businesses they robbed, and ran a “black site” torture center at Holman Square. Like the cops who killed George Floyd and thousands of others. Like the cops that murdered Fred Hampton and Mark Clark, https://www.democracynow.org/2009/12/4/the_assassination_of_fred_hampton_how. Like the cops that took part in the Obama “Fusion Center” squashing of the Occupy movement, along with the FBI and the rest of the alphabet panopticon.
“Cops” in the same manner as described by Maj. Gen. Smedley Butler, way back in the 1930s: “War is a racket,” about his time as an enforcer of the “rights and power” of US corporations to loot little countries in i Central and South America, the Philippines, Haiti, Cuba, and the rest of Monroe-istan. https://www.ratical.org/ratville/CAH/warisaracket.html
So yes, in some sense the US empire is “the world’s policeman,” who “serves and protects” the interests of the looting class. Yet most of us mopes have in mind that nice Irish beat cop who straightens out rambunctious teens, checks the locks on shopkeepers’ doors as he walks his rounds in the community, and promotes a safe place to live.
Amazing how well Bernays’ Un-Principle works. https://theconversation.com/the-manipulation-of-the-american-mind-edward-bernays-and-the-birth-of-public-relations-44393

On a lighter note… hey Larry, what are the names of your two Rotties ?
Please feel free to add pics of them out here from time to time… Rotties are GREAT dogs !
Compared to the loathsome cretins currently running the west, Putin and XI actually look good. But let’s not forget, they are both ruthless dictators.
“But let’s not forget, they are both ruthless dictators” LMAO LOL
They are both ruthless dictators that drink blood of children, accoding to sources owned by “loathsome cretins currently running the west”. But let’s not forget that drinking blood of children is completly illegal in The West, unlike f**king them.
Vallhalla Rising says
While the NATO military alliance expands out of sheer panic and a position of weakness, the multi-dimensional (diplomatic, military, economic) alliances between Russia and China has never been stronger and that will have global repercussions.
If US/NATO/EU flexing of their collective instruments of national power were effective then the opposite would be true right? I mean US/NATO/EU would be in a strong economic, diplomatic and military position and China and Russia would be the ones in a reactive/defensive mode–that does not appear to be the case.
Generally speaking, the collapse of Rome took about 100 years (370 AD – 460 AD)…the US and its Western allies do not have that long…maybe a decade(+).
Richard Hansen says
The list had no mention of moral agreement, religious agreement, human rights agreement or liberty agreement. That is a huge missing hole from this meeting. For this marriage to actually be a good thing for the world, these two partners will have to not ignore this side, it can’t be all about oil, minerals, soybeans, industry and the like. Russian Christian values should align with whatever great religions China tolerates. I pray that this pairing doesn’t lead the world to things like organ harvesting, euthanasia, abortion, infanticide, surveillance state, CBDC’s to confiscate your money if you have the wrong thoughts, etc. They obviously are aligned against the woke agenda that those folks call “values”, transgenderism, etc. Neither do they seem to treat climate change like some sort of religion. These are good things. We shall see. America dropped the ball on upholding the common moral tenants of all the great religions, now it has to pay the price. Hopefully these two will not take the world down the road of some Orwellian nightmare.
Meh, juz more “milk-toast” political rhetoric.
Good vs evil.
The zionized, evil West is a pathetic, rabid, controlled mutt.
Ukraine war is a war driven, controlled by some 20 – 40
thugs kin to the Iraq, Syria wars thugs.

The End Of History…To A New Beginning
“…an end to the ‘democratic liberalism’ and global hegemonic aspirations, for which the misnomered Neocons so perversely lit the world on fire. “
Keith Harbaugh says
There is a lively discussion of the Russia-China summit and related topics at Turcopolier:
Don’t see many people mentioning the food security angle. It was in the middle of the joint announcement but clearly delineated as it’s own point. I think that, other than secret annexes on military cooperation and mil-tech sharing, this is the most important thing.
Russia has become a net food exporter (which Putin says/implies it was not in 2014), and China is a net food importer. Getting food using overland logistics instead of sea lanes is huge, they cannot be interdicted absent a strategic strike that is subject to retaliation.
(Compare that to sinking a freighter on the high seas.)
I think it is no accident that Belarus also highlighted ag trade with China in their summit at the start of March.
“Bakhmut is encircled. All roads in and out of it are under Russian artillery fire. Over the last three days fighting has largely stopped there.
No one seems to know why the operation was halted.”
The Russian traitors have stopped the fighting so that the chosen can walk out and fight another day.
The preferred option was for the traitors to order a withdrawal allowing the Ukrainians to stage another miraculous counter offensive, just like in Kherson and east of Kharkov.
However, the Wagner Group refused to cooperate, so they cut off their ammunition.
But even that did not work as Prigozhin was still able to get ammunition from Akhmat, and a few other units.
Eventually Prigozhin was reduced to calling favors that enabled him to get ammunition without it being processed directly through the Russian military. So the traitors took away his phones.
Since March 1, due to lack of ammunition the Wagner group has not tried to close the encirclement of Bakhmut.
Prigozhin’s promise that the Wagner group would take Bakhmut anyway, was premised on his being able to find ammunition elsewhere. It appears that he was not able to do so.
Random Telegram BS does not fit well in this site.
Like many others commenting here I was surprised and disappointed by Colonel McGregor’s dishonest statement on DU ammunition.
After reflecting for a day I think it is a case of CYA on his part.
He clearly stated he directed forces that used these munitions.
Admitting the truth could cause him a lot of trouble.
Let us not be distracted by this. He largely speaks truth’s that are hard to come by in this day and age.
That DU leaves behind a toxic legacy is without question among people capable of independent thought.
Please remember why DU is in the news now- UK publicly stated they are sending DU munitions to Ukraine now.
The EVIL western globalists are the problem, not Col McGregor.
Let’s hope Russia has a plan to end this evil proxy war in Ukraine before the evil west can escalate into something way more dangerous.
I little story on depleted uranium munitions.
When I was conscripted in the army back in 2k, I came upon those high velocity, high penetration NATO munitions. In fact during tank platoon, live fire exercises, these where the only type of rounds that we used.
During that time there where allot of stories about all kind of health issues that US Iraq veterans where dealing with, like blood cancers, and every kind of organ failures.
These health issues where referred to as “Gulf syndrome”.
In my research I found out that some of the medical professionals and scientists that where researching these issues in the US at the time, and where linking the “Gulf syndrome” to the use of depleted uranium munitions, either had some tragic accident, or simply disappeared.
From what I gathered, depleted uranium indeed has acceptable radiation levels due to the “hardening” chemical treatment is receives. But that is true ONLY for its stored state.
That is until you load it in a gun and fire it.
The extreme pressure and temperature that the projectile is subjected to in the barrel, transfers allot of energy to it, and causes the uranium to glow hot. That’s why you can actually see the white hot projectile, flying down range, if you standing next to or behind the firing tank.
During the projectiles flight, it leaves an invisible cloud trail of uranium particle dust due to aerodynamic friction. When the projectile impacts, it disintegrates into a huge cloud of these uranium particles. These particles contaminate the field of operations and eventually end up in the soil and groundwater. You can breathe them in, eat them, and drink them, and they accumulate in your body. The fact that you have radioactive material accumulating in your body … can be harmful unless you are Homer Simpson.
Some have claimed that the US has found a method to get rid of uranium fuel byproducts, that are costly to safely store and manage, by converting it to depleted uranium munitions and distributing around the world to NATO armies.
I have “cleaned-up” firing ranges, and reset targets down range, with no precautions and no protective equipment, and I bet you if there was a way to find these contaminants via X-ray or MRI, I would lite-up like a Christmas-tree!
Thank God it was not enough to kill me, but unfortunately for thousands of others Americans, Iraqis, Serbians, and who knows who else, the contamination had and will continue to have severe effects on their health.
If the above are indeed true, then I think it is fair to consider depleted uranium munitions equivalent to a “dirty bomb”, as in principle they have the same effects.
Larry, thank you for your insights and your courage to speak the truth.
Also thank you, to your great contributors, co-authors and commentators.
This site has been an isle of sanity, in these insane times.
Larry Johnson says
You are welcome.
“If the above are indeed true, then I think it is fair to consider depleted uranium munitions equivalent to a “dirty bomb”, as in principle they have the same effects. ”
Being #1 in using regular nukes on innocent people is not enough. USA has to be the greatest in dirty bombs too (not to mention Agent Orange, napalm, or white phosphorus).
The institutional order of the criminal gangsters running the so called west is collapsing.
I feel the central issue is the profound absense of prudence, no matter what all this cabal of lunatics is about or their objectives, this wonton abandonment of prudence, its stark lack in any form is psychopathic in origin.
It manifests itself in various forms from pretending not to know things to pretences created from whole cloth for justification of violating all norms of peaceful codes and precepts, is the abandonment of reason replaced with feral human impulse.
The picture these terrible issues and events this cabal perpetrates or ignores paint a landscape of out of all control maniacs who no longer have a grasp of sense of time, combined with their standard operating stance of employing terror and reprisal as their weapons of choice what this organized criminal gang is is a threat to the existance of all life on GOD’s green Earth. And I make no mistake about this. Terror and reprisal is what they do, escalation is their first choice, there is no option B with this cabal, it is our way or we kill you and destroy all we can not have for ourselves.
Plain and simple.
But being this is all dressed in a false narrative of both the strangest form of the victim stance combined with a fake skin suit of legitimacy made from artifical consent manufactured from nothing thru their media monopoly mind bending reality distorting media complex, this is a group of feral humans who to date not ever faced the consequences of their actions. If anything it is a state of what i say goes and nothing else has any force of legitimacy which with rational groups and undividual sane people is a moral set of brakes that determine an essentialy peaceful productive creative happy and prosperous, naturally occurring way of life between all good folks.
But time has run out for these lunatics. In simple terms most of humanity is fed up, tolerance for these criminal actirs behaviour is become totally unacceptable, and their cunning ruthless methods of denying good folks praceful forms of petition and redress, combined with their ruthless violation of good folks codes, this state of terror and reprisal they threaten all good people with as a steady state, a constant given, leaves the only and most critical of all natural laws as the only remaining option good folks possess, and that is The First Law, The Law of Self Preservation.
And even if most of us may not couch this in this way, any sane critically thinking or intuitively sensed state of the world subconscious warnings us good folks generally have as our own tell you what is going down must end. Period. And soon this will be by any means neccessary, meaning whatever it takes, to stop these insane criminals and their crime syndicate.
The only limitation within The First Law, for those of us who make a stand and choise to fight, is the default restraint; For there but The Grace of GOD I dare go.
These ruthless lunatics for all their cold blooded thirsty terror and reprisal, they do not understand how mean good folks get when their codes are so ruthlessly violated. And the natural order of survival of the fittest, meaning K Strategist Humans, by default require an utter cleansing of our world of this disease, this terrible incarnate 2 legged virus of destruction and death, this human self extinction clique of feral humans aka the deep state. Because the awful truth exists now as events have gotten past the point of no return far as “they” are concerned, it is clearly apparant that if their agenda is not to be realized, will not come to fuition, for them and only them, then nobody will get anything, the ultimate terrorists stance, if i can’t have it nobody will.
This is this cabal’s charactervin a nutshell, this last item in the list of evil and depravity.
I ain’t no deep thinker or educated person of honors and certificates, i literalky have no diploma of education, simply a blue collar working man, but i can see all this clear as the sun rising in the sky at dawn. It is unmistakable for anything else, its what it is when the BullShit and ship of lies is ripped off everything.
It is time now, us Men if The West, us everyday Men and Women, it is time to grab our rifles and run towards the sounds of battle. Make no mistake here, the world is deliberately forced into cutting bait of fishing, like the pig, we are all committed and we are all involved, nobody and I mean nobody gets to ride this out, it has got this far, and its about all us good folks on this planet this time.
Unless by some miracle, if this does not stop if these lunatics are not checked and right soon, maybe only weeks remain till the point of no return is breached, there will be nothing for it but to go full self preservation mode, basically you shoot to kill dead all they send. It is all that will stand between their war of civilization and ones home and lived ones. And you do not stop till they have no more agents to send or you get the dirt nap yourself.
Thats where its heading here. No bones about it. GOD, Faith, The First Law, Our Rifles, and our cause is all we have left if this once beautiful Republic. I say lets not dissapoint ourselves, or history, lets be the first to save ourselves, the true MAGA. Make The World Great Again.
I truly believe based on what I can ascertain, the Russians and Chinese just want to get along, no wars no terrorism and reprisal, just get along and have a good life, for everyone. Is it that difficult, really? Is it all, and is it been realky for generations, going a ling arse way back in history, is it this pattern in details which point towards this cabal, that its been them thru generations of incarnate criminal underground, thru a system if blackmail unkike anything almost incomprehensible in its depravities, is it been these money changers operating along the fringes of tge shadows, all this time, who are the roit and cause if wars and genocide all this time?
It sure looks like it. And we finally got them where we can get at them. Right where us good folk need them. And all we got to do is say “I WON’T!”, withdraw our consent, and make sure we got our Rifles at hand and our friends close. They will come, its guaranteed they come for us, our Rifles, they can not tolerate any defiance or resistance. It is always been about our Rifles all along. For it is the advent of The Rifle which made us dirt people finally free people. Our Rifles lifted us out of the dirt and provided many things, foremost dignity, the dignity of Liberty. Lets Win! Lets All Win!
The Chinese scare me. They are not like us. They are very different. The Russians are like us.

Agree, in China religious freedom is repressed. I wouldn’t put it past the Chinese to think nothing of euthanasia, forced abortions, organ harvesting, political imprisonment, massive censorship and propaganda, etc. Russians on the other hand have taken to Christian values since the Soviet Union. Russia isn’t perfect either, but given a choice of what system I’d move my family to, I’d take Russia. It is refreshing that neither country buys into gender affirmation nor climate change as the new god-replacement.
You have mistaken China for Ukraine (aka beacon of democracy).
No, we are not.
Peter Bowen says
It is important to keep in mind that the with the return of President Trump to the oval office, our nation will once again assume a leadership role for the good. If we build our country, restore our manufacturing and technological powers, excite our children about colonizing the solar system, and imbue our culture with the love of God and his children once again, we will have no difficulty working with any well-intentioned people.
Serious question Peter: is this satire?
Generic Newdill says
I love the colonizing part, and imbuing others against their will.

The article above describes Xi’s taking leave of Putin:
A historical moment between two world historical men, who seem a little awed at their roles.
Paulo Guerra says
I understand and agree with many of Larry’s thoughts but I don’t agree with the dates that go into the story books that always depend on who writes the story. Even today, in the history books we read in the West, the two great dates of WWII are the beginning and the end. Pearl Harbor in the US and Operation Overlord in Europe. Which should be a footnote compared to Kursk or Stalingrad! In the West, we also never give much importance to the number of nationalities in the Nazi Germany army, with millions of soldiers, in Operation Barbarossa! Which makes the current conflict in Ukraine basically a remake! With the added irony that most Nazi prisoners would perish in the coal mines of Donbass in the decade following the end of WWII!
In the same way that the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 marks the end of the cold war with the end of the Warsaw Pact and the end of the World Order that emerged from WWII and the beginning of the unipolar Order based on US rules with the Sheriff in Washington. And it was not necessary to wait two years for the dissolution of the USSR in 1991!
And the date that will go down in history for an unlimited Sino-Russian alliance or partnership will be the date of its signing and the announcement of this partnership by Putin/Xi at the opening of the Beijing Winter Olympics in February 2022! Which was what allowed Russia to also overcome the biggest package of unlimited economic sanctions in history! And in my opinion, it will also mark the beginning of a fairer multipolar NWO! And see how Iran today has come to draw attention to the violent behavior of the French Republic with demonstrators in Paris! Something unthinkable just a few months ago! Minicron must be hiding in some bunker with his ears burning like his friend Zelensky!
My Comment says
The alliance between China and Russia makes me somewhat optimistic about the rest of the world. The US is still very powerful and, in the short run, can somewhat keep Chinese in check through threatening them with their not being able to fulfill their dream of owning more real estate in white countries and hurting their exports to the west.
However, time is on the Chinese side and the US is increasingly seen as evil. I say that as a US citizen from Southern families. The US flies its anal flag around and stands for anal sex with children and child mutilation. The approach of the US towards other countries is closer to the mafia than a sane superpower.
Washington, Wall Street and the City of London will not back down or deescalate. It’s do or die for them. Accommodation is possible? but unlikely at this point. I fully expect Global conflict.. and I mean beyond the mostly soft global conflict we are experiencing now. And violence and conflict on Americans.. not from the Chinese, from Washington. Free people anywhere are the enemy of Washington. Look closely at the foo-foo-rah over Tik-Tok.. Another UGE takeover of information sources is planned.
