NY Times:Depleted Under Trump, a ‘Traumatized’ E.P.A. Struggles With Its Mission
Despite an injection of funding, the agency still has not recovered from an exodus of scientists and policy experts, both insiders and critics say.
Previously, I spoke about how Trump’s de-balling of NATO has saved the world from the planned World War III which Soros himself had been openly “predicting.” Today’s story in “the paper of record” whines about a similar neutering of the once almighty and tyrannical EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). Enjoy this bit of butt-hurt, from the article’s opening paragraph:
“The nation’s top environmental agency is still reeling from the exodus of more than 1,200 scientists and policy experts during the Trump administration. The chemicals chief said her staff can’t keep up with a mounting workload. The enforcement unit is prosecuting fewer polluters than at any time in the past two decades.” (emphasis added) *
Three other mighty blows struck against the extremely dangerous GreenReds which were not mentioned in the article — yet every bit as significant — are:
* 1. The Trump Supreme Court ruling barring the EPA from “regulating” harmless CO2 emissions * 2. Trump’s 2017 pullout from the Paris Climate Scam (*Biden’s “re-entry” has been properly described as “toothless”) * 3. Trump’s installation one of his own, Jeffrey Bossert Clark to run things at ENRD(Environment and Natural Resources Division) at the Justice Department. The ENRD — responsible for the civil and criminal enforcement of environmental laws — was loaded up with Trump’s people, as was the DOJ in general. Strangely enough, some of these key players remain in placeunder “Biden.”
1. Nominally speaking, “Biden’s” Justice Department is headed by Merrick Garland. But in essence — as observant Leftists are openly complaining about) — Trump’s people remain in charge! // 2. Jeffrey Bossert Clark may have resigned as the “Biden” administration came in — but his boys remain in charge on environmental enforcement — and will not prosecute petty “polluters.”
The genocidal NATO World War 3: — deactivated The genocidal CDC / WHO 5-year lock down scheme: — deactivated (by “Warp Speed”) The genocidal WEF Great Reset: — deactivated The genocidal EPA Climate Con / Carbon Tax Menace: — deactivated
And yet, some of the Sunshine Patriots and members of the whiny backseat “Are-We-There-Yet Chorus — under the pernicious influence of dirty trickster CIA cyber operatives pretending to be patriots — still denigrate the man as a “Globalist” …. “but but, muh Trump’s death jab.” (palm to face, shaking head, sighing)
More delightful whining from the Times article:
“Mr. Trump tried each year to slash the E.P.A. budget by at least 30 percent. Highly skilled scientists and other experts left the agency as the Trump administration dismantled science advisory panels, disregarded scientific evidence and weakened protections against pollution.”
“They beat down the E.P.A. work force, a lot of people left dispirited,” said Senator Tom Carper, Chairman of the Committee on Environment and Public Works, which oversees the E.P.A.”
At the same time that the Deep State Greens in the Suites were being de-funded and dis-empowered, the Greens in the Streets disappeared as well. Where’s Leonardo DiCaprio and the March for the Climate & March for Science rent-a-mobs? Where’s Greta Gloomberg’s commie kiddie Fridays for Future army? Bill Lie the Science Guy? — Neil DeGrasshole Tyson? — Hello? — You see, without a puppet master, the puppets can no longer dance.
Thank You, President Trump — and also, “President” “Biden.”
The Globo-Marxist-created “Climate Bogeyman” is failing because The Donald killed it.
“Ingsoc. The sacred principles of ingsoc. Newspeak, double-speak, the mutability of the past.” – George Orwell, 1984
I was greeted by an editorial from The New York Times’ Editorial Board, “A Brutal New Phase of the War in Ukraine.” It is a piece of propaganda so obvious that only those desperate to believe blatant lies would not fall down laughing. Yet it is no laughing matter, for The NY Times is advocating for a wider war, more lethal weapons for Ukraine, and escalation of the fighting that risks nuclear war. So their title is apt because they are promoting the brutality. This pissed me off.
The Times’ Editorial Board tells us that President Putin, like “Hitler”, is mad.
“Like the last European war, this one is mostly one man’s madness.” Russia and Putin are “cruel”; are conducting a “regular horror” with missile strikes against civilian targets; are “desperate”; are pursuing Putin’s “delusions”; are waging a “terrible and useless war”; are “committing atrocities”; are responsible for “murder, rape and pillaging,” etc.
On the other hand, “a heroic Ukraine” “has won repeated and decisive victories against Russian forces” (Bullshit) who have lost “well over 100,000 Russian soldiers killed and wounded,” according to the “reliable” source, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chief of Staff, Gen. Mark A. Milley (Asshole). To add to this rosy report, the Ukrainians seem to have suffered no causalities since none are mentioned by the cozy Times’ Editorial Board members from their keyboards on Eighth Avenue. When you support a U.S. war, as has always been TheTimes’ modus operandi as a stenographer for the government, mentioning the dead pawns used to accomplish the imperialists’ dreams is bad manners. So are the atrocities committed by those forces, so they too have been omitted. Neo-Nazis, the Azov Battalion? They too must never have existed since they are not mentioned.
But then, according to the esteemed editorial writers, this is not a U.S. proxy war waged via Ukraine by U.S./NATO “to strip Russia of its destiny and greatness.” No, it is simply Russian aggression, supported by “the Kremlin’s propaganda machinery” that has churned “out false narratives about a heroic Russian struggle against forces of fascism and debauchery.” U.S./NATO were “horrified by the crude violation of the postwar order,” so we are laughingly told, and so came to Ukraine’s defense as “Mr. Putin’s response has been to throw ever more lives, resources and cruelty at Ukraine.”
Nowhere in this diatribe by the Times’ Board of propagandists – and here the whole game is given away for anyone with a bit of an historical sense – is there any mention of the U.S. engineered coup d’état in Ukraine in 2014. It just didn’t happen. Never happened. Magic by omission. The U.S., together with the Ukrainian government “led” by the puppet-actor “President Volodymyr Zelensky,” are completely innocence parties, according to the Times.(Note also, that nowhere in this four page diatribe is President Putin addressed by his title, as if to say that “Mr. Putin” is illegitimate and Zelensky is the real thing.)
All the problems stem from when “Mr. Putin seized Crimea and stirred up a secessionist conflict in eastern Ukraine n 2014.”
Nowhere is it mentioned that for years on end:
that U.S./NATO has been moving troops and weapons right up to Russia’s borders,
that George W. Bush pulled the U.S. out of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty and that
Trump did the same with the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty,
that the U.S. has set up so-called anti-ballistic missile sites in Poland and Rumania and asserted its right to a nuclear first-strike,
that more and more countries have been added to NATO’s eastern expansion despite promises to Russia to the contrary,
that 15,000 plus mostly Russian-speaking people in eastern Ukraine have been killed by Ukrainian forces for years before February 2022,
that the Minsk agreements were part of a scheme to give time for the arming of Ukraine, that the U.S. has rejected all calls from Russia to respect its borders and its integrity, that the U.S./NATO has surrounded Russia with military bases,
that there was a vote in Crimea after the coup,
that the U.S. has been for years waging economic war on Russia via sanctions, etc.
In short, all of the reasons that Russia felt that it was under attack for decades and that the U.S. was stone deaf to its appeals to negotiate these threats to its existence.
It doesn’t take a genius to realize that if all were reversed and Russia had put troops and weapons in Mexico and Canada that the United States would respond forcefully.
This editorial is propaganda by omission and strident stupidity by commission.
The editorial has all its facts “wrong,” and not by accident. The paper may say that its opinion journalists’ claims are separate from those of its newsroom, yet their claims echo the daily barrage of falsehoods from its front pages, such as:
Ukraine is winning on the battlefield. (lol)
“Russia faces decades of economic stagnation and regression even if the war ends soon.” (lol)
That on Jan.14, as part of its cruel attacks on civilian targets, a Russian missile struck an apartment building in Dnipro, killing many.
Only one man can stop this war – Vladimir Putin – because he started it.
Until now, the U.S. and its allies were reluctant to deploy heavy weapons to Ukraine “for fear of escalating this conflict into an all-in East-West war.”
Russia is desperate as Putin pursues “his delusions.”
Putin is “isolated from anyone who would dare to speak truth to his power.”
Putin began trying to change Ukraine’s borders by force in 2014.
During the last 11 months Ukraine has won repeated and decisive victories against Russian forces …. The war is at a stalemate.” (lol)
The Russian people are being subjected to the Kremlin’s propaganda machinery “churning out false narratives.”
This is expert opinion for dummies. A vast tapestry of lies, as Harold Pinter said in his Nobel Prize address. The war escalation the editorial writers are promoting is in their words, “this time pitting Western arms against a desperate Russia,” as if the U.S./NATO does not have CIA and special forces in Ukraine, just weapons, and as if “this time” means it wasn’t so for the past nine years at least as the U.S. was building Ukraine’s military and arms for this very fight.
It is a fight they will lose in the days to come. Russia was, is, and will triumph.
Everything in the editorial is disingenuous. Simple propaganda: the good guys against the bad guys. Putin another Hitler. The good guys are winning, just as they did in Vietnam, until reality dawned and it had to be admitted they weren’t (and didn’t). History is repeating itself.
We are being subjected to a vast tapestry of lies told by the corporate media for their bosses, as the U.S. continues its doomed efforts to control the world. It is not Russia that is desperate now, but propagandists such as the writers of this strident and stupid editorial. It is not the Russian people who need to wake up, as they claim, but the American people and those who still cling to the myth that The NY Times Corporation is an organ of truth. It is the Ministry of Truth with its newspeak, double-speak, and its efforts to change the past.
The crimes of the United States have been systematic, constant, vicious, remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them. You have to hand it to America. It has exercised a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It’s a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis.

NY Times: What Does It Mean to Provide ‘Security Guarantees’ to Ukraine?
A postwar Ukraine will want to ensure that Russia does not attack again. But is there anything short of full NATO membership that will satisfy Kyiv and deter Moscow?
The Times and their chosen “foreign policy analysts” continue to pursue the lost cause of Ukraine being granted NATO membership. Not only will that not happen in the post-Trump world, but NATO itself may not even survive into the next decade — at least not as the potent offensive force which its post-WW2 Globalist founders designed it to be.
The Khazarian cross-dresser Zelensky also realizes that the NATO killing machine (de-fanged by Trump) isn’t going to come to his aid. In response, the vulgar little coke-head lashed out over something that happened — or rather, did not happen — back in 2008:
From an earlier Slimes article:
“Mr. Zelensky was speaking about the 2008 NATO summit in Bucharest, Romania, where, after a major internal debate, NATO promised membership in the alliance to Georgia and Ukraine but without specifying when.
The Bucharest summit was marked by a debate over whether to give Ukraine and Georgia a formal “membership action plan” to guide them toward qualifying for NATO membership. President George W. Bush favored doing so. Ms. Merkel (Germany) and Mr. Sarkozy (France) were not alone in arguing that neither country was ready.” (emphasis added)
You see that? The same vile Bush-Cheney crew which aided and covered up the 9/11 false flag atrocities and brought us the never-ending genocidal “War on Terror” was ready to induct the Ukraine into the killing cult of NATO and its infamous Article 5 “war-with-one-means-war-with-all” commitment. France & Germany however — knowing that World War III would touch their cities directly — balked at the idea of issuing a fixed date for admitting the Ukraine, preferring to play the “long game” of engaging Russia’s traitorous (and now extinct) internal “fifth column” instead of provoking a war that would leave Berlin and Paris in ruins.
In January of that same year, just before that Bucharest Summit mentioned earlier, and at a time when it was presumed that Killary Clinton would be elected president in November (it turned out to be Obongo “Obama”), the filthy harridan called for the Ukraine to be put on track for NATO membership. She issued a statement saying:
“I enthusiastically welcome the January 11 letter from Ukrainian President Yushchenko, Prime Minister Tymoshenko, and Rada Chairman Arsenii Yatsenyuk to NATO Secretary General Scheffer, which outlines Ukraine’s desire for a closer relationship with NATO, including a Membership Action Plan. (emphasis added)
As Secretary of State in 2010, she repeated her support for NATO membership (here) As the Demonrat’s candidate for president in 2016, she again called for NATO to offer military aid to The Ukraine — a form of de facto NATO membership that was more saleable. (here)
Fast forward from 2008 to 2014 – the year of the violent CIA-Mossad coup which overthrew the duly-elected Russia-friendly government of the Ukraine. One of America’s most “respected” and influential Senators, John McStain ((McCain”), openly demanded that his new puppet pets in Kiev be placed on a definable timetable for NATO membership. (here)
So you see, the world came a lot closer to NATO membership for the Ukraine — and war with Russia — than most people realize. It was only the rise of Donald Trump — an unexpected historic event which led to the demise of Killary and the secret execution of McStain (here, (0:00 – 0:17) and (here) — which prevented the insanity of placing the fate of the world in the hands of the mad puppet gangsters of Kiev.
1. The Witch of the West and the Witch of the East, Killary with then Prime Ministerette Yulia Tymoshenko // 2. 2014: McStain incites a Ukrainian mob of “ultras” — terrorists and mercenaries along the lines of McCain’s ISIS — to rise up and overthrow the government. // 3. The two wretched monsters of “opposing” political parties were as “thick as thieves” when it came to promoting World War III. Thank Donald Trump for removing them from their high places.
The 8-year oppression of the Russian people of the new republics of Luhansk and Donetsk was the most pressing reason for Russia’s limited action in the Ukraine. Of even greater importance, however, was the need to put a stop, once and for all, to the dangerous long term game of placing and arming an enemy outpost so deep into Russia’s backyard. The Ukraine’s potential absorption into the EU-NATO beast system would have given The New World Order Satanists a population of 40 million from which to draw additional human cannon fodder; and a territory in which to place missiles in what would represent a nearly 800 mile eastward advance — putting them close enough to hit Moscow with hyper-sonic missiles within a matter of minutes.
To say that Putin’s action was morally justified would be an understatement. It’s much more than that. Anything less would be gross negligence and a dereliction of his sacred duty to protect his people from the Globalists who wish to “cancel” Russia. For this reason, Putin was absolutely correct to label internal “fifth columnists” as the “scum and traitors” that they are.
1. The Ukraine is as wide as California is long. It’s fall to NATO would be the equivalent of an instant 800 mile conventional and nuclear military advancement upon Russia // 2. And that’s in addition to the previous Globalist eastern acquisitions of Poland, Hungary, Romania, Lithuania etc which followed the disintegration of the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact alliance.
With this epic battle for the world still raging, I — in spite of all the cancellations and hate mail — is not about to betray the dauntless man who saved us all from the unimaginable Hell-on-Earth apocalypse which the sainted Killary Clinton (who would now be 1-year into a second term) would have unleashed upon humanity. The game that Chess Master Trump is playing against the Deep State amounts to a ruse so clever that it’s even got many of his followers (er, “ex” followers) tricked.
Write him off as a con man or even a traitor if you insist; but before doing so, do consider some undeniable precedents of Trump being “two-faced” — for the sake of a strategy known as “optics.”
The pattern is unmistakable by now. In each of the following cases, Trump, in order to silence the ferocious media cannons firing at him, said something which deeply upset many of us — while continuing to quietly work against the Deep State Globalists and getting his way in the end.
On the Clintons
Trump’s True Position: Lock her up! The Media Attack: “Trump’s threats to arrest the Clintons smack of “Fascism!” How Trump Silenced the Attack: After winning the election, he stated, on 60 Minutes: “The Clintons are good people. I don’t want to hurt them.” The Sunshine Patriots: “Oh no! Trump’s not even in office yet and he has already broken his promise to have Hillary arrested!” The End Result: Prosecutor John Durham — who was appointed by Trump! — is indeed investigating the dirty dealings of the Clinton Mafia. Patience on this one, boys and girls. The timing has got to be perfect for such a move as the arrest of such high-ranking players as the Clintons — who may actually already have been arrested and replaced by those “Deep Fakes” that the New York Slimes and Killary herself had warned about.
The Clintons // The Bait
On the House Freedom Caucus
Trump’s True Position: Trump courts the true conservative bloc of anti-establishment “America First” Congressmen (Jim Jordan, Ron DeSantis, Mark Meadows etc). He sees this small group of fighters as his most important allies in the fight against the Deep State. The Media Attack: “The Freedom Caucus is made up of far right extremists!” How Trump Silenced the Attack: He sided with Speaker Paul Ryan (who Trump actually hated all along) in criticizing and threatening the House Freedom Caucus for being too extreme. The Sunshine Patriots: “Trump and Paul Ryan are attacking the finest members of Congress! Trump is a phony!” The End Result: Trump engineered a situation in which the Freedom Caucus now controls the US Congress — and its members are positioned to carry out serious investigations into very serious matters.
House Freedom Caucus // The Bait
On Climate Change
Trump’s True Position: The Climate Con is a hoax. The Media Attack: “Trump is a climate denier! The world is in crisis.” How Trump Silenced the Attack: While still President-Elect, he invited climate con artists Leonardo DiCaprio & Al Gore to Trump Tower to “open mindedly” hear what they had to say about the “crisis.” The Sunshine Patriots: “Oh no! Stupid Trump is being controlled by libtarded Ivanka! He is a Global Warmist now!” End Result: Trump pulled us out of the Paris Climate Scam, ramped up domestic energy production and defunded / fired a whole bunch of warmist scientists.
The Climate Con // The Bait
On North Korea
Trump’s True Position: The dangerous Korean Cold War must end. The Media Attack: “Trump is being soft on the evil dictator Kim Jong Un” How Trump Silenced the Attack: He called Kim “Rocket Man” and threatened to attack North Korea with “fire and fury.” Kim (also in on the game) responded by calling Trump a “frightened dog.” The Sunshine Patriots: “Oh no! Trump is a neo-con warmonger!” The End Result: Trump’s people had been in secret back-channel communication with Kim’s people all along. The Korean Cold War — which always had the potential of bringing the US and China into war with each other — is over.
North Korea // The Bait
Trump’s True Position: Pull all US troops out of Afghanistan The Media Attack: “Trump is negotiating with the terrorist Taliban!” How Trump Silenced the Attack: He publicly ended the talks with the Taliban and threatened to bomb them – as he privately maintained back-channel negotiations. The Sunshine Patriots: “Oh no! Traitor Trump is going to keep us in Afghanistan!” The End Result: The final US withdrawal (as planned by Trump) occurred under “Biden” in a way that made it seem as though “Biden” botched it!
Afghanistan // The Bait & The Switch — both described in the same headlines.
The End Result
Trump’s True Position: Work with Putin to kill NATO and avoid World War III The Media Attack: “Trump is leaving Europe vulnerable to Russian attack!” How Trump Silenced the Attack: He boasted about how he strengthened NATO. The Sunshine Patriots: “Oh no! Trump is a pro-NATO Globalist!” The End Result: NATO cannot counter Russia’s justified actions in Ukraine because Trump (not “Biden”) is the true Commander-in-Chief. The war-making alliance is dying right before our eyes.
NATO // The Bait & The Switch — both described in the same headlines.
The End Result
Trump’s True Position: End the CIA-Mossad proxy war against Syria The Media Attack: “Trump is being soft on the evil Bashir al Assad” How Trump Silenced the Attack: He called Assad “an animal” and — after telling Assad’s Russian ally in advance — launched a harmless missile attack on an empty field. The Sunshine Patriots: “Oh no! Trump is an Israeli-owned warmonger!” The End Result: After Trump defunded the CIA program propping up “the moderate rebels” (ISIS), Russia and Iran finished off the CIA-Mossad mercenaries on the ground. The Assad government was saved.
Syria // The Bait
Trump’s True Position: Maintain peace in the region The Neo-Con Media Attack: “Trump is being too soft on Iran.” How Trump Silenced the Attack: He threatened to attack Iran. The Sunshine Patriots: “Oh no! Trump is an Israeli-owned warmonger!” The End Result: Iran, now free of Obama’s “Iran Nuclear Deal,” is free to pursue nuclear weapons to defend itself against Israel. Along with Russia, Iran is now an influential power in the region.
Iran // The Attack on Trump
On Gun Control
Trump’s True Position: Pro 2nd Amendment — 100% The Media Attack: After the 2018 hoax shooting at Parkland High School in Florida, a deafening roar for “gun control” went forth from Fake News and prominent politicians of both parties. How Trump Silenced the Attack: He publicly agreed that something had to be done. The Sunshine Patriots: “Oh no! Trump is about to betray us on the 2nd Amendment!” The End Result: After allowing the temporary furor over Parkland to fizzle out, Trump did nothing. Since Parkland, there has also been a noticeable decrease in these hoax shootings.
Gun Control // The Bait
On Russia / Ukraine
Trump’s True Position: End the dangerous CIA-Mossad proxy war against pro-Russian east Ukraine and cripple NATO before it ignites a World War. The Media Attack: “Trump is Putin’s bitch!” How Trump Silenced the Attack: He said a few nasty things about Putin and made a public show about the weapons he was selling to Ukraine. The Sunshine Patriots: “Trump wants a war with Russia!” The End Result: The military aid to Ukraine was delayed and came with the condition that they not use the new equipment! The Ukrainian warmongers were demoralized and the tension eased. The Ukraine “civil war” ended (update: February, 2022: Putin is cleaning up Ukraine while Trump pretends to condemn his actions).
Ukraine War // The Bait
Trump’s True Position: Peace in the broader Middle East and a deal between the Israelis and Palestinians. The Media Attack: In this case, there was no attack because Trump skillfully preempted the Israel First elements. How Trump Silenced the Attack: Trump blocked any Jewish attack by pretending to kiss Satanyaoo’s ass and making the meaningless gesture of moving the US embassy to Jerusalem. The Sunshine Patriots: “Oh no! Trump is a Zionist puppet! Muh Jared Kushner!” The End Result: Satanyahoo is out of power (as are Israel’s top blackmail agents, Jeffrey Epstein & Ghislane Maxwell) and the whole Middle East is quieter than it has ever been in 70 years. The US is out and Russia and Iran are now the regional powers. Said Trump recently of Satanyahoo: “Fuck him!“
Israel // The Bait
Stupid 19 & The Vaccine
Trump’s True Position: Give the chicken-shit normies their magical vaccine in order to thwart the planned multi-year Scamdemic; block the Great Reset that was to come out of the deadly multi-year lock down; and launch the great counter punch of 2022. The Media Attack: “Trump is being negligent! His supporters refuse to take the vaccine and he’s not saying anything to encourage them.” How Trump Silenced the Attack: He recently made his strongest public statements yet in favor of voluntary vaccination (knowing full well that it wasn’t going to change anyone’s mind on either side of the issue). The Sunshine Patriots: “Trump is evil! Mike King is a shill!” (rolling eyes) The End Result: (As we foresee it) In the eyes of the bewildered masses of Normiedom, Trump comes out of this manufactured controversy looking like “the adult in the room” — as the “Biden” administration and the Demonrats continue to implode. The international hysteria over Stupid-19 will end this Spring, soon after Trump’s “Truth Social” media giant (an absolutely critical element to all of this) comes online. Investigations into election fraud, human trafficking, the Russia hoax etc are continuing. The “Storm” will begin to hit (in the public eye) no later than this summer — intensifying in stages and finally culminating with a historic electoral rout — which even the media is already projecting — by America First Republicans in November.
Be patient, boys and girls. Understand that we are fighting an irregular war, with regular casualties, against an “invisible enemy” (more Trumpian code). Stop taking Trump literally.
Geopolitics & Empire: Geopolitics & Empire is joined by Emanuel Pastreich, who serves as the president of The Asia Institute and as director general of the Institute for Future Urban Environments. He declared his candidacy for president of the US as an independent in February of 2020. Welcome to Geopolitics & Empire, Mr. Pastreich.
Emanuel Pastreich: It’s an honor to be here.
Geopolitics & Empire: I came across your work recently, your writing and your interviews, and I thought I had to have you on the show because you have many unique insights and you’ve got a fascinating life experience. It is hard to peg who you are because of your interesting background. If you could just briefly maybe tell us, who is Emanuel Pastreich?
Emanuel Pastreich: Right. Well, that’s a tough one and I’m maybe not the most qualified to explain myself. I came from a relatively establishment background in the United States. I’m still wearing a tie, and I was a professor of Asian studies, so I spent a good part of my life in Korea and Japan, and I studied Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. When I was at the University of Illinois back in 2000, 2001, I became quite committed to opposing the totalitarian rule in the United States, which continues to the day. And as a result of my efforts with others, I ended up being basically unable to work in the United States and living in Korea from 2007. Tried to come back to the United States once in 2019, which was not successful.
I’m back in the United States after three years away; just arrived a week ago. I am trying my best to address real issues in the United States and to puncture a hole in the blanket of hypocrisy and fraud that has wrapped around every aspect of American society, and, by extension, around the world. I want to talk about real things.
I had declared in February, 2020, when I saw what was happening with this so-called Biden-Trump election, that I would run as an independent candidate for president and address real issues, not with any particular leftist or rightist perspective. I tried to just scientifically address what were the problems in the United States. And that caused a lot of problems, but it did give me the chance to get in the habit of giving talks, speeches, which has now become my primary means of expressing myself.
I hope we can return to politics based on intellectual inquiry, on a moral commitment, and on real engagement with citizens, as opposed to a fraudulent “feel good” approach to blanket marketing.
Geopolitics & Empire: I purchased your book “I Shall Fear No Evil.” I think people can download it for free. You touch on most of your points in that book.
I agree with much of what you say. And maybe we can start with what you touched on: what’s wrong with the US?
I’m from Illinois, I’m from Chicago, and 20 years ago I saw a lot wrong. I’m a history major, former teacher, former professor of history, I could just see the cycle of history.
Emanuel Pastreich: Where were you teaching?
Geopolitics & Empire: Well, I taught abroad in Kazakhstan and in Mexico. That’s part of the story. I decided to leave the United States. When you’re born as an American, you never imagine we were an empire. I thought we were just a country, the United States, and then you realize there is stuff we get into like 9/11, and other things. The reality is we’re an empire, and we’re the biggest empire in the history of the world. So we are starting all these wars, killing millions of people.
There’s a lot of good that America has done, but a lot of bad too. We have to be fair. There’s the militarism. And we’re bankrupt financially–you talk about that. I also think that spiritually we’re bankrupt.
Emanuel Pastreich: Intellectually too.
Geopolitics & Empire: We’re at each other’s throats. Then there’s the techno-authoritarianism. I might get you in into trouble. In April, I believe the Department of Homeland Security told PayPal to shut off my account. I’m banned from using PayPal.
Emanuel Pastreich: Well, congratulations.
Geopolitics & Empire: And so if you could tell us basically, what’s wrong with America as you see it?
Emanuel Pastreich: Well, to some degree it’s a cyclical process. If you have any institution, any government or empire and it runs 250 years, you start to have these institutional contradictions and collapse. To some degree it’s because of the institutions that were originally set up no longer correspond with the reality of how decisions are made, or how the economy works. I happen to like the US Constitution and I refer to it. It’s not a perfect document, but it gives some basic principles for governance, which I think are quite unique.
It was a unique, successful experiment in history. It doesn’t mean the United States was successful, it just means that concept of constitutional government where they took some of the essence of what was discussed in Greece and Rome and tried to take the empire out of it. That was the concept behind the United States. It was a noble experiment that offers much for us.
However, it was flawed from the beginning. Obviously slavery, the destruction of the native peoples, also the idea of real estate and how it was imported here and enclosure, all that part of the project was obviously flawed. But we did have some good aspects to the United States, which sometimes were positive for the world.
But over the last 50 years, we saw the militarization of the economy and then this move towards a radical expansion of financialization and privatization. And in that process, I think, we also have to take note of the end of the Cold War, which has been celebrated in what we’re force fed in media and in academics. But the end of the Cold War was essentially the end of an opposing perspective in the world. Basically during the Cold War (I’m not saying Soviet Union or the People’s Republic of China got it all right) socialist nations at least offered a different perspective, were able to suggest that things like class struggle, the concentration of capital, and ideology were topics to talk about. These were things that were important in their newspapers and universities. And when the Soviet Union and China basically went over to a modified neo-capitalism, with a little bit of socialist characteristics mixed in the drink, then we lost that other perspective in the world.
And as a result from the 1990s on increasingly these ridiculous ideas about economics spread. In the United States, or in Japan, or in Germany in the 1970s—through the 80s even, there were professors of economics who took Marxist economics as a major part of their approach to economic theory. There are zero people like that now, except for bloggers.
We’ve lost this potential for other perspectives. It’s not saying that Marxism is perfect. I’m not a Marxist by the way, but I’m sympathetic to Marxist analysis. I think that addressing class issues and finance and ideology is critical. And so we now are in this position in which consumption, growth, exports are assumed by basically everybody to be essential for the wellbeing of people, or that the stock market has a relationship (other than parasitic) to the lives of ordinary citizens.
These things are accepted as truths, right? They’re talking about a rise in the stock market as good for you.
And we have in the United States now these cardboard messiahs, whether it’s Bernie Sanders, or AOL, or Donald Trump who come up with these quirky ideas about what economics is, or how we can be more progressive, concerned with working people.
But essentially they buy into the entire economic money system and they’re not interested in saying, “Why don’t we make people independent from money?” They’re not trying to say, we can support ourselves.
We don’t have to spend money. People in the 19th century, most of them didn’t use money. They used it only when they went to market once a month to buy things they needed. Some metal products or certain items like clocks. But basically in their daily lives, they were able to support themselves and their communities were able to support them. That is real economics; that’s positive.
Actually that’s the real meaning of market economy. It has become a horrible term that’s been so distorted. Market economy means you go to the market in your community and you sell carrots, or the chairs you made, and you exchange them with your neighbor who is selling butter, or fabrics or whatever. And you have this mutual support system.
Now market economy means Google and Facebook and all these techno tyrants, which print up their own money by devaluing our money, and they control the entire system. They set up these IT systems (like the technology we are using now) in which we are forced to communicate with each other, to exchange, to buy things through them. They control the means of production, means of distribution, means of sales, and the means of communication, and increasingly the ideological structure itself. They produce these false conservatives and these false progressives whom we are supposed to buy.
Geopolitics & Empire: That was my next question. We’ve got an oligarchy in the US and I think it’s just as bad as the Russian oligarchies and these foreign dictatorships. I think the issue for us is that because Americans are more prosperous, we care less—as long as we can buy our nice cars, iPhones, and other stuff. We don’t really care about our oligarchy, but they’re just as bad, if not worse.
You mention sham elections. I agree with you; just to read a quote from your book, you say, “I say that if we do not have an election in which someone like me can be a candidate, can have a chance to be covered in the media, that we are not holding elections but rather holding an impressive sham. We have no intention of recognizing any such sham elections. In fact, until there is an election in which someone like me can get proper attention and the chance to be on the ballot, we will not recognize any of these elections.”
Just a quick thought on the elections. As you say, on our left, our right, we’ve got fake conservatives and a fake left. No one is anti-war anymore on the left.
Emanuel Pastreich: That’s true.
Geopolitics & Empire: There’s a handful on the right, but they all stay within a certain bounds. None of them have ever crossed the red line.
Emanuel Pastreich: Right. Well I think the decision to run as independent candidate for president was a serious one. I take it quite seriously and I put a lot of work into the speeches. The preference to my book is out in 40 languages. I don’t have Croatian, but I have many other languages—many from Central Europe for that matter. It was a campaign both in the United States and also globally meant to say, let’s have an alternative view.
And we’ve been basically blocked out. I think that American elections were always flawed. I wouldn’t say there was a perfect time, but there’s been a catastrophic collapse of the political system over the last 20 years. And the result is these sham elections, as I was suggesting in my recent post.
Now politics is determined not by elections, but by false flag operations, like 9/11 or COVID-19 or these mass shootings, whatever, these are how politics are determined, not by voting at the ballot.
In order to move beyond, to go back to some logical, scientific, rational process, I think we have to look back to the founding of the United States, or other countries, and recognize that the basis for the United States in the beginning, and the ways in which it was successful, were based on revolutionary thought, recognized that the United States is a revolutionary country.
That’s the core where we start. And we have to say that the Declaration of Independence notes very clearly,
“When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
Our two founding documents are the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. You not only are entitled to, but you have a moral obligation to oppose this system, to overthrow it, and to create a system which is democratic, transparent and accountable.
That is my position when I am running as a candidate. I would love it if people vote for me, if they put me on TV, and if I got attention like Donald Trump, or these bedridden people like Joe Biden.
But that’s not my purpose. My purpose is to be revolutionary. And so I believe the best way that I can affect politics, that we can affect politics, is to take a stand and to say, “This is the truth. This is what needs to be done.” I’m not interested in whether the New York Times or CNN will cover me, because they’re so corrupt and so useless and dangerous, that as far as I’m concerned, we should lock them all up too. I have no interest in pandering to them.
And I would also say that that was the major mistake made by so many people in the United States over the last decade (as we fell into late imperial decay): they thought, I have this good idea, what might be a good idea, and in order to realize that idea, I’m going to compromise. I’m going to downplay it, going to soften it up a little bit, modify it in such a way that, one, the New York Times will mention me, and two, some wealthy donor will give me money.
And my position is to say, I’m not going to do that. And that this is the only way to achieve real change in the United States, and globally, to draw a line in the sand.
It may seem pointless. You might see me as someone who is a failure. I was not able to work in the United States from 2007. I have been unemployed for long periods of time, which was not all that pleasant. But I think that my actions were more politically meaningful than if I had compromised on 9/11 and other issues and tried to play the game here in Washington D.C.
Geopolitics & Empire: Just one real quick question on 9/11, not to go in depth, just get your big picture take. One of my subscribers recently tuned to the email list told me they’re signing off because I believe 9/11 was a false flag operation. And I’m like…
Emanuel Pastreich: It’s so obvious
Geopolitics & Empire: For me you’re not a serious person if you can’t take on the false flag operations. My response to him was that in graduate school in Geneva, Switzerland I was taught about this type of thing. It is a basic historical fact. The Roman Empire did it. Nazi Germany did it.
Emanuel Pastreich: I would even say it is an ancient tradition.
Geopolitics & Empire: Russia has done it. It’s a basic military strategy. NATO has done it. Japan has done it, Israel has done it, Turkey has done it. Tell me a country which has not run the false flag operation.
But just real quick, you mentioned previously, but also in one of your writings, you’ve written the false flag “serves as critical tool in American politics by creating mass trauma in the population that inhibits the formation of organized resistance or the possibility of rational intellectual discourse.” And so just your quick take on 9/11.
Emanuel Pastreich: Well I think that in that respect, 9/11 was extremely successful. Basically it shut down the American mind.
We need to use Hermann Broch’s term “the sleepwalkers” to describe our ruling class. We see people who are intellectuals, who are extremely well educated. They read books. They are lawyers, doctors, businessmen, but they’re incapable of conceiving of what is happening. They’re basically sleepwalking through history, unable to conceive of these higher-level traumatic shifts in governance.
And so 9/11, is most representative in that respect. If you’ve taken one semester of physics in high school, you can figure out that this event was impossible. It cannot possibly be true. I watched it. I was in the US, at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign at the time. I saw it. I was not a physics major. I thought, this is not possible. Something else is going on here.
But there’s no way that if two (if it’s what happened) airliners crash, it’ll cause three buildings that made of concrete reinforced with steel to collapse. It cannot possibly be true.
But I think looking back on it now, that that was the whole point; the point was, just like with COVID-19, to force-feed the population a story which was not credible from the beginning. And the purpose of that was to degrade the ability of citizens to think for themselves scientifically and co-opt an entire class of intellectuals.
I’ve written about this topic using the ideas from Julien Benda’s classic book “The Treason of the Intellectuals” from 1927.
That was a large part of 9/11, and of COVID-19. This large class of privileged intellectuals, people like myself, decided –and I saw this at the University of Illinois and elsewhere– that they would go on with this incredibly stupid, unbelievable, argument on physics and on geopolitics to explain this trauma.
They went along with it. They took the money. There are always going to be some intellectuals like that, but the fact that there were so many for both 9/11 and COVID-19 who were willing to buy the story indicates something deeply wrong.
I have a classmate who’s a teaching at MIT and I talked to her, and talked to her about COVID-19 at the very start. She was just following the rules. I know that she’s smart enough to know that it just doesn’t make any sense scientifically.
As I put it in one of my articles, technology buried science in a shallow grave. We have a system in which technology is mistaken for science. We moved towards this “sciencism,” as opposed to science. In sciencism the truth is determined by experts at Harvard or Stanford, or wherever, as opposed to by a rigorous investigation of phenomena.
That started before 9/11. You can trace it back. In some ways it started with Oklahoma, which was the precursor to 9/11. I think if we hadn’t had the trauma of the Oklahoma bombings, that 9/11 would’ve been harder to pull off. And finally, I would conclude by saying that many of these things they’re planned out. DARPA (defense advanced research projects agency) and RAND and other agencies–now there’s a proliferation of these think tanks or consulting firms—planned these traumas. From the 1960s on they carried out a whole series of studies in psychology, mass trauma, et cetera, in which they essentially came up with these classified plans, some of which have been declassified, most of which have not. The plans describe how to transition a population from one state to another over time through the use of mass trauma.
And that’s what 9/11 was about. Oklahoma was the first point of mass trauma, then 9/11, then COVID-19–and there were a few others in between.
On the one hand the operations had very specific agendas, what they were trying to do in the short term. But there is a larger agenda, which is to create a totalitarian state, on in which people are not aware, as you mentioned, that the system is totalitarian.
There’s a radical alienation between the reality on the ground and the manner in which ruling class intellectuals, who set the tone and the message, perceive the world. We live in a fantasy world in which we are told this is how the United States works. And then there’s the reality of how it really works. Basically they’ve become two unrelated realms.
Geopolitics & Empire: Just to comment on the academic aspect, I worked in education, in academia here in Mexico, and just as you described it, I find it sad. Most academics, all they care about is their money, their salary, their wages, and their career. I want the truth. I had my classes taken away from me when I taught at a high school and at a university. And the trick was that it’s harder to get fired from the high school than it is the university.
Emanuel Pastreich: Interesting.
Geopolitics & Empire: After one or two semesters they took away my courses at the university on international relations because I was talking like you are. Eventually there was a new person who took charge and he didn’t know my way of thinking. And so I got my courses back. It’s just really sad. It just goes back to the fact that the people want the money, they don’t care about the truth.
Emanuel Pastreich: Well, I’ve seen that. Certainly many academics now, and I see this in my colleagues, people who I used to be quite close to in another lifetime. Consider the priority to be getting grants. And so grants are the goal, certainly not scientific method, right? They must go along with what grantors want. And that process no longer involves any sense of public good, or of government or institutions that are run for the public good.
We have the Drew Faust, the previous president of Harvard. When she retired, she was appointed to the board of directors of Goldman Sachs. Unprecedented in American history. But it’s telling. So the priority for these research institutes and their administrators is their ability to suck up to global capital.
That is what it’s about. And so obviously if we’re talking about Goldman Sachs, BlackRock, or other Blackstone, or other private equity, these guys are sophisticated. They hire consulting firms and tell them how to modify teaching and academic research at Harvard over time so that it serves their purpose, essentially they help to cover your tracks for you. You do not modify intellectual discourse in too explicit a way. You throw in a little bit of multiculturalism here, a little bit of gender theory there; you talk about how unfair it is that poor people are not doing so well, but you don’t identify the process of how we got here.
It’s become, I think it’s a major, major industry, this whole distortion of reality in advertising, public relations, consulting, and then on beyond that in research, academics, journalism, and the basic principles of discourse now. It’s a form of prostitution.
I like to talk this trauma in terms of incest, rape, and prostitution, the three fundamental traumas in human relations, in sexual relations–sexual relations have profound symbolic power in our society.
And all of them, incest, rape and prostitution, have their equivalents in our political world and in our intellectual world. And that’s what we’re witnessing. Increasingly we’re talking about all of those. Incest is the false flag, the internal compromise in which the compromise is so profound for the victim that it can’t even be addressed. Rape is similar in that it brings the person into this relationship which was unwanted, but in a way which is so embarrassing (and sometimes involves some mutual attraction), that it becomes so horrific that the individual cannot even conceive of what happened.
And so in many cases of rape in the real world, people never report it because they think it is so demeaning to the self and they can’t even confront it in themselves.
In the case of prostitution, that which should be expression of concern, or affection, or love, or commitment to family, becomes a means of making money, a service. And we see such a distortion all across our society, especially in education. Rather than teachers being concerned with society or with students, or with family, it becomes just a means to produce money. Maybe you are not selling your body but you are selling your soul.
Geopolitics & Empire: I wanted to have you unpack COVID-1984, as I call it, and basically the same thesis I’ve held from the very beginning, January, 2020, you put into words, I never viewed that there was a pandemic at all. My theory is that it was planned, this whole event. It was either some low key bio weapon or it was entirely manufactured from whole cloth. Either way, there was no pandemic. We just could have just gone on with our lives normally.
You wrote recently on your Substack, and I recommend people read this article, the links will be in the description. You say, “Operation COVID-19 was a global coup d’etat disguise as a pandemic that was launched against China and the world in December, 2019. And that continues onto the present.”
You say that, the reality is that a tiny group of key players representing the super-rich in the US and in China coordinate closely to promote COVID lockdowns in China. And you say that everywhere they were applying this digital dictatorship. This is my interpretation. All the nations did it. I was living in Kazakhstan, I fled through the US to Mexico. I observed the creation of the “algorithm ghetto” social credit system, the “electronic concentration camp” passports, QR codes, and mandatory injections. And in some places you couldn’t even buy food without it. It’s like the Book of Revelation. You can’t buy or sell without the mark.
Emanuel Pastreich: That’s true.
Geopolitics & Empire: I some places they say you can’t even go to the public park without vaccine certificates. I can see that it’s a global elite that has no allegiance to nationality. It’s the US elite, it’s the Chinese elite. And they use, as you said, these private tech IT companies that are already embedded within all of our countries. We’re basically being run by big tech. Could you tell us more about how you see COVID?
Emanuel Pastreich: Well, I think you’ve described it quite accurately there. I maybe just add a few words to say how it works. I think one of the key aspects of this takeover has to do with the concept of government. So we’re being fed this narrative by the controlled opposition that says government is bad, inherently bad, and all the bad things happen because of evil politicians or bad government. Now, obviously, government is bad these days, but if you say that government cannot possibly serve a purpose, meet the needs of the people, that this is a nihilistic and depressing perspective. I think that view is being force-fed to us by those power elites in order to discourage us from trying to organize ourselves and to create government. That is the first thing I would say.
The second part is the takeover of local government, and central governments, around the world by these IT companies. So, whether it’s in Sichuan province or it’s in Oklahoma, local governments are lobbied and then intimidated, bribed and threatened, in order to get these IT companies to run government for them. So whereas you previously had government officials, good and bad, who basically made the decisions based upon various pressures from around them in the community, now you have just one or two government officials, the president or the governor, or whatever. And their job is to outsource the budget to these IT companies who run everything for them. This happened to universities; it happened elsewhere.
This is a profound transformation. So essentially when you see a message that says, the government does this, or this is the government, or this QR code is scanned by the government, in fact, there’s no government behind it. It’s not government in any sense of the word. It’s a totalitarian dictatorship run by these global IT companies.
And they have some tricks to hide their tracks, but it’s not that hard to figure out. Basically Amazon, Google, Alibaba, there are 10 or so big players are taking over the world. And then there are smaller customized players. For example, as I mentioned, in Israel we have Black Cube and other customized private intelligence firms that facilitate the transformation. I think they were very much involved in what’s happened in China. I was criticized for this for not giving the evidence for this transformation in China, but just take my word for it.
I’d be happy to give you the evidence at some future date. But they also were very much involved in it.
And so we need to combine the evidence from these precedents. On the one hand, we have the research from DARPA and from RAND from the 1960’s and 70’s, how to modify people’s behavior and also how to take over basically the government through this privatization drive. Then we have the research from Guantanamo Bay and the so-called torture programs after 2001 in which experiments were carried out (Naomi Klein describes this in some detail) on how to modify behavior through isolation, i.e social distancing, masks, and other forms of repeated ritual behavior.
These rituals associated with COVID-19 are meant to be meaningless and fraudulent, and most importantly, the person involved at some level knows that the rituals (like wearing a mask) are fraudulent—but he still does them. And that action of participation in one’s own destruction degrades the ability to resist. So you can create very passive environments through those policies.
Those two strategies were combined with some understanding of AI and how it could be used to induce a passive, narcissistic, self-indulgent and decadent culture among people, especially in the mid-level ruling class. I discussed this in my article, “the terrarium economy.” We see in America this fake ruling class, people who went to Harvard and they become lawyers and doctors. They own three million, five million, $10 million in assets and a house by the beach or in France or in Italy.
They think they’re the ruling class, but it’s a fraud. The ruling class are these people who control basically the means of production and they control the nature of money. Those people are worth hundreds of billions. We don’t even know how much they’re worth because they make it up for themselves.
But for those people, the billionaires, the difference between a lawyer who has $10 million in assets and a homeless person is the difference between a roly poly and a spider. We are all bugs from their perspective. They know, based upon the reports they receive from their private intelligence and strategy teams, that by creating this false terrarium economy wherein there’s an imagined ruling class headed by someone like Biden, and it also contains a lot of poor people in it so as to create a visible little conflicts among us, that you can blind people to the fact that the whole system is all enclosed and controlled by this elite group.
And finally, much of the analysis that could be helpful for understanding economics is prohibited.
I hate to stress Marxist analysis because I’m not really a Marxist, but I’m also practical. Whatever approach works I will use—as I told Josh Jadwin the other day.
Marxist economics can be extremely helpful. I don’t think we should dismiss it just because we have some bias fed to us by the controlled opposition. We’re trapped in this system wherein the ideology is controlled by these people, as is the means of production, the means of distribution, the means of communication, and money itself is controlled by them.
And they’re dumbing us down. I think we have supercomputers doing this. They’ve calculated how fast or how slow to move towards the totalitarian system, how to create false conflicts like how Trump is excluded from Twitter, or whatever—all irrelevant. But it works because people’s thinking has been so degraded by technology. In fact, technology like Facebook or Twitter is designed to degrade your ability to think.
Mamma Mia! The screams of Bolshevik butt-hurt emanating from the press over the election of a “far right” female Prime Minister in Italy are reverberating throughout the hollowed heads of western Libtardia. From the opening paragraph of the Times’ Jason Horowitz whine-a-thon:
“Italy turned a page of European history on Sunday by electing a hard-right coalition led by Giorgia Meloni, whose long record of bashing the European Union, international bankers and migrants has sown concern about the nation’s reliability in the Western alliance. Ms. Meloni, the leader of the nationalist Brothers of Italy, a party descended from the remnants of fascism, had led a right-wing coalition to a majority in Parliament, defeating a fractured left.” (emphasis added)
Hmmm. No “hurrahs” for the 45-year-old Giorgia “breaking the glass ceiling” to become the first female Prime Ministerette of macho Italy? Come on now, Whorowitz. This is the type of “historic” fluff you girlie boys usually get all warm and tingly about, is it not? Youse guys had such a hard-on for “strong women” like Killary, the Frumpy Frau of Germany and that trans donkey down in New Zealand. How about a little love for the Italian babe?
Although the success of the “far right” in Sweden’s elections last week came as delightful news, it doesn’t compare to what just occurred in Italy for the simple reason that Italy is one of Europe’s largest states (pop: 60 million) and largest economies. If Italy “turns its back” (or even just turns sideways) on NATO and the EU, the whole house of NWO cards may topple in Europe — exactly as Q had — when the idea of such a thing seemed unimaginable — accurately forecast as far back as 2017. That being said, infertile, ageing, corrupted and factionalized Italy, like Sweden, still may not be salvageable domestically.
I support the idea of women as political leaders (why not). We should acknowledge this, in a democracy, the placing of softer female masks on the face of the big bad “far right” has certain strategic advantages. And as far as we can tell, Signora Meloni — mother of one out-of-wedlock child by her “significant other” — seems solid in both her political and social positions as she is passionate. Meloni’s political activism dates back to her student days and has been what (((they))) would describe as “fascist” — though she seems to have “moderated” (rolling eyes) in recent years.
We’ll let the lady speak for herself — and then you’ll understand why the likes of Mr. Whorowitz are horrified:
* Giorgia Meloni on God, Family & Country:
A question: “Why is the family an enemy? Why is the family so frightening? There is a single answer to all these questions. Because it defines us. Because it is our identity. Because everything that defines us is now an enemy for those who would like us to no longer have an identity and to simply be perfect consumer slaves.
They attack national identity, they attack religious identity. They attack gender identity, they attack family identity. I can’t define myself as Italian, Christian, woman, mother. No. I must be citizen x, gender x, parent 1, parent 2. I must be a number. Because when I am only a number, when I no longer have an identity or roots, then I will be the perfect slave at the mercy of financial speculators — the perfect consumer.
That is the reason why we inspire so much fear. Because we do not want to be numbers. We will defend the value of the human being because every person has a unique genetic code that is unrepeatable… and like it or not, that is sacred.
We will defend God, country, and family. Those things that disgust people so much. We will do it to defend our freedom because we will never be slaves and simple consumers at the mercy of financial speculators. That is our mission. That is why I came here today.”
Tell it, Giorgia. Tell it! — Good Christian? well, marry the father of your daughter.
In this textbook example of the psychosis known as “projection” — world class propagandist and “Pulitzer Prize winner” Steven Lee Myers not only applauds Twitter & Facebook censorship of “disinformation” — but goes a step further by moaning and groaning about how “Russian propaganda” (truth) continues to influence the perception of Putin’s righteous military operation in nations around the world.
It’s not enough to suppress the information flow for the English-speaking peoples. Meyers and his tribesmen want the whole world kept in the dark. The Satanic inversion of reality presented in his article is astonishing. The good news is that, in more and more places around the world, the Jurisprudence Armada’s propaganda flotilla is no match for Russia’s information warfare campaign. Meyers’ lies are easy to deconstruct. Let’s clean up some of his filth.
Meyers: In Spanish in Latin America or in Arabic across the Middle East, a steady stream of Russian propaganda and disinformation ……… Analysis: Deep State-affiliated news agencies also operate in all nations of the world. So if US / NATO version of events was true, there wouldn’t be any need to worry about “Russian propaganda and disinformation” because, in a fair head-to-head match, truth will always trump falsehood. What Meyers fears isn’t the “disinformation,” but rather — the competition.
Meyers: … continues to try to justify President Vladimir V. Putin’s unprovoked invasion Analysis: More projection. The word “unprovoked” actually applies to NATO’s relentless eastward expansion and Jukraine’s violent oppression of the Russian-speaking Donbas republics — Donetsk and Luhansk.
Meyers: The result has been a geographical and cultural asymmetry in the information war over Ukraine that has helped undercut American- and European-led efforts to put broad international pressure on Mr. Putin to call off his war. Translation: The days when (((they))) could invent and sell the most preposterous and unchallenged lies to the sheeple of the world are — thanks to the Internet and sophisticated Russian communication operations — over.
Meyers: The failure of Facebook and Twitter to impose stronger checks on Russian posts in non-English languages has begun to draw criticism as the war drags on. Analysis: There was a time, not too long ago, when most libtards openly expressed horror over the mere thought of news organizations or platforms “imposing strong checks” on the flow of information — even if it was “hate speech.” — “I may disagree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it,” went the old cliche (falsely attributed to Voltaire).
Of course, they made such self-righteous declarations during an era when they were absolutely dominating the info-war. Now that we truthers — thanks to the Internet — have crawled back into the ballgame, the Voltairian mask of magnanimity has dropped as abusive Orwellian “cancel culture” becomes the “the new normal”for the Left.
Meyers: Two weeks ago, a bipartisan group of United States senators added to the criticism, accusing the platforms of allowing Russia to “amplify and export its lies abroad” in Spanish. Analysis: U.S. Senators “accusing” platforms of “allowing” the Russian side of the story to be presented? Do Slimes readers not see a problem with this? Evidently not.
My times have changed. On the day after Japan’s justified 1941 attack on the Pearl Harbor naval base in Hawaii, this same NY Times actually printed the Japanese Emperor’s entire declaration (here) — in which he put the blame for the event on the United States. Now (((they))) want Putin to be cancelled — even in foreign countries?
Meyers: The lawmakers urged the companies to do more to block Russia’s Spanish outlets, including RT en Español and Sputnik Mundo. Analysis: Keeping Americans in the dark isn’t enough. The scum feel they have the right to shape the opinions of the whole world.
Meyers: Russian disinformation is flowing freely in parts of the world where the war in Ukraine is viewed in less stark, good-versus-evil terms as in the United States and Europe. Analysis: “Good vs Evil” — total reality inversion. Putin actually is a good man (read The War Against Putin.”) Zelensky and his Globalist handlers are the evil ones.
Meyers: Robert Menendez of New Jersey and Tim Kaine of Virginia, both Democrats, and Bill Cassidy, a Republican from Louisiana, wrote in a letter to Facebook’s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg. Analysis: Senator Bill Cassidy, FYI, is notorious for having stabbed Trump in the back after “January 6th”. It figures he’d be the “bipartisan” part of this tyrannical effort. After crossing “The Donald,” Cassidy’s days are numbered.
Meyers: On these sites, Russia’s war is falsely portrayed as a just cause ….. Analysis: Actually, Russia’s struggle against the Globalist West is very much a “just cause” – 100% and easily proven. Indeed, Mike King wrote a whole book on the topic which – by the way – was banned by Amazon in 2021. There will be no “Pulitzer Prizes” for Mr. King.
Yu-Jie Chen is a research professor at the Law Institute of Taiwan’s “Academia Sinica” and an affiliated scholar at New York University’s U.S.-Asia Law Institute. Though usually averse to making hasty generalizations, I — on the basis of those “credentials” alone, coupled with the fact that the “paper of record” thought to feature her “Guest Essay” — can confidently label her as a Globalist-Libtard of the Asian branch of Globalist Libtardation.
A proper framing of this wench is necessary for understanding why, in the dispute between the “Two Chinas,” we side with Xi of “communist” China over “democratic” Taiwan. You see, the “I Stand With Taiwan” crowd is made up of the same cult cretins as the “I Stand With Ukraine” bunch. Don’t be surprised if, in few more weeks from now, the usual deluded, virtue-signalling followers of “the latest thing” swap out their yellow and blue Jukraine flags for the red and blue of Taiwan.
To get a better understanding of what this brewing “crisis” is really all about, let’s dive into “Professor” Chen’s love letter to Speaker Pelosi for some analysis.
Chen: As a Taiwanese,…. Rebuttal: Stop right there! You’re only “Taiwanese” by a geographical / historical quirk necessitated by the aftermath of the Chinese Civil War which ended 73 years ago. You are, racially, historically, linguistically, culturally — Chinese. Be proud of that, traitor.
Chen: … I’m sometimes asked what it’s like living in “the most dangerous place on earth.” Rebuttal: Oh the bloody drama! Who says Taiwan is “the most dangerous place on earth?”
Chen: That’s what The Economist labeled Taiwan last year. Rebuttal: The Economist eh? Ooooh, such an authority. The Economist is a Globalist propaganda organ half-owned by the Rothschilds. We can tell who’s buttering your egg roll, honey.
Chen: Taiwan’s people have lived for decades under Chinese rhetorical threats to absorb the island. Rebuttal: Actually, the official Chinese position is for Taiwan to maintain a maximum level of autonomy, but as part of a single Chinese nation. The name for this idea is “One Country, Two Systems.” Under this proposed arrangement, Taiwan (like Hong Kong & Macao) would keep its governmental system and manage its own financial affairs. It’s a total win-win situation — sort of like the decentralized “cantons” of Switzerland — but the Globalists and their minions in Taiwan won’t allow it.
Chen: China often reacts furiously when any U.S. official visits Taiwan … Rebuttal: And how would Americans react if Chinese busy-bodies were to visit the commonwealth of Puerto Rico to incite them against the US mainland?
Chen: ….Beijing has a special loathing for Ms. Pelosi. Rebuttal: The fact that China “loathes” that corrupt drunken bitch is all the more reason for decent Americans to NOT “stand with Taiwan.”
Chen: Ms. Pelosi’s visit was a welcome expression of U.S. solidarity with Taiwan …. Rebuttal: Drunken Nancy (if that’s even her) won’t be speaking for Americans for much longer. The Demonrat Party is headed for a devastating humiliation in about 12 weeks.
Chen: Taiwan is critical to the entire democratic project. Rebuttal: What exactly do you mean by the “democratic project?” — And why is Taiwan so “critical” to it?
Chen: We are the first place in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage. Rebuttal: There it is! “Gay – Gay – Gay” — the very first thing she mentions. Yes, the Globalists are turning Taiwan into an Asian outpost of decay and degeneracy. In hindsight, foreknowledge of that alone might have made me root for Mao’s Reds to take back the island.
Chen: And one of the first to elect a female leader — our current president, Tsai Ing-wen — Rebuttal: President Tsai Ing Wen is a rancid libtarded harridan cut from the same Soros cloth as libtarded western shrews like Satanist Hillary, Drunken Pelosi, Frumpy Merkel, Donkey-Faced Adern (gender questionable) et al. Again, give me bloody old Chairman Mao over this bossy neo-Marxist hag any day.
Chen: We are a successful economy, with some of the highest living standards in Asia. Rebuttal: Morally decaying Taiwan, like its western counterpart “democracies,” also has below-replacement-level birth rates and growing divorce rates. Keep ageing the population and keep ruining your families — and we shall see how much longer you can maintain a “successful economy.”
Chen: If Taiwan were brought to heel by China, …. Rebuttal: The fact that Taiwan was “brought to heel” by the Globalist Cabal a long time ago doesn’t seem to trouble this “sovereignty” loving cosmopolitan C-word one bit.
Chen: …. the world would lose a shining example of democracy and the liberal international economic order Rebuttal: “The liberal international economic order,” eh? — That says it all.
Chen: … at a time when the authoritarian tentacles of the likes of Russia and China are expanding. Globalese to English Translation: “Authoritarianism” refers to the act of saying “NO!” to the Globalist Crime Syndicate.
Chen: Seizing Taiwan would fulfill Mr. Xi’s nationalistic goal of annexing the island. Rebuttal: It would not be a “seizure.” What Xi seeks is peaceful reunification.
Chen: Rarely does anyone bother to ask what the Taiwanese want. The answer: to live our democratic way of life ….. Rebuttal: Lying she-devil. Taiwan is being offered “One Country, Two Systems.” You can keep your precious “democracy” and “gay rights” — just as long as you don’t allow the CIA and the Soros NGOs to set up subversive shop on the island.
Chen: … without outside interference. Rebuttal: The “outside interference” (always inciting Taiwan to maintain an adversarial posture toward China) comes from the West, not China!
Chen: When Mao Zedong’s Communist forces won the Chinese Civil War in 1949, China’s Nationalist regime, led by Chiang Kai-shek, fled to Taiwan and ruled with martial law. Civil liberties were curtailed, and regime opponents suffered greatly. Rebuttal: Chiang Kai-shek knew how to deal with not only Maoists, but also the libtarded democratic types. Ironically, Nationalists Chiang and Xi would probably have gotten along very well today.
Chen: Through the efforts of democracy advocates and pragmatic post-Chiang leaders, Taiwan evolved peacefully into a firm democracy. Translation: After Chiang’s death, the CFR-CIA complex got its tentacles into the island’s parliamentary politics and started recruiting traitors and weaklings.
Chen: We watched with shock and sadness as Beijing cracked down on Hong Kong’s freedoms — a disturbing glimpse of our own possible future. Rebuttal: China’s “crackdown” was on the CIA / Soros “Umbrella Revolutionaries” of Hong Kong. The people at large are doing just fine.
Chen: And Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has prompted fears that China could do the same to us. Rebuttal: As they say in poker parlance, this is yet another “tell” from this quackademic whore. She hates Putin (surprise surprise).
Chen: Beijing repeats its tired old gospel that Taiwan is an ancient and inseparable part of the Chinese motherland. Rebuttal: Well, tiny Taiwan is an ancient part of China. Why is that a “tired old gospel?”
Chen: We do not want a war with China. But we are ready to protect our home if attacked. Our determination to safeguard our beloved homeland should not be underestimated. Freedom is worth fighting for. Rebuttal: The evil bitch would have her fellow islanders (a decent chunk of whom, in spite of CIA propaganda, actually want reunification with the mainland) to die in defense of the “liberal world order,” not for “freedom” — as she safely sits out any potential conflict sipping lattes with her queer American comrades in some faculty lounge on the NYU campus.
Chen: All democracies will be strengthened by standing with Taiwan. Rebuttal: Sounds just like Zelensky of Jukraine. She wants “all democracies” to go to war against Russia & China in defense of the “”liberal world order” — which was exactly what the N.W.O. would have unleashed by now had Killary Clinton won in 2016. Soros himself had even “warned” (threatened) so. (in 2015: here) and again in 2022: here)
And that, boys and girls, is all “you guys” need to know about the true meaning of “standing with Taiwan.”
NY Times: Putin Aims to Shape a New Generation of Supporters, Through Schools
Sweeping changes in the curriculum will soon cast the Russian president as a pivotal historical figure and mark an end of openness to the West.
Oh the horrible howls of non-lubricated butt-hurt emanating from high atop Manhattan’s Marxist Mendacity Machine! Not only has (((their crowd))) lost the opportunity to mind-rape the youth of Russia like they have been doing in “the free world” — but Vlad the Bad & friends are now doing a bit of benevolent brainwashing themselves instead!
From the article:
“Starting in first grade, students across Russia will soon sit through weekly classes featuring war movies and virtual tours through Crimea. They will be given a steady dose of lectures on topics like “the geopolitical situation” and “traditional values.” In addition to a regular flag-raising ceremony, they will be introduced to lessons celebrating Russia’s “rebirth” under President Vladimir V. Putin.
And, according to legislation signed into law by Mr. Putin on Thursday, all Russian children will be encouraged to join a new patriotic youth movement in the likeness of the Soviet Union’s red-cravatted “Pioneers” — presided over by the president himself.”
Oy vey! Vlad the Bad is busting out his own version of the Hitler youth!
Notwithstanding the deeply embedded historical errors surrounding Russia’s “heroic” resistance against Napoleon and Hitler — both of whom had multi-national wars imposed upon them by “the usual suspects” — this is the sort of patriotic, social and moral indoctrination that our misguided youth so desperately need. Let us analyze a few excerpts from the story:
Times: As the war in Ukraine approaches the five-month mark, the vast ambitions of Putin’s plans for the home front are coming into focus: a wholesale reprogramming of Russian society to end 30 years of openness to the West. Analysis: The necessary and proper military action in Ukraine gave Putin the opening he needed to smoke out the libtarded “scum and traitors” (his actual words) of Russia and “reprogram” society with strong doses of truth and decency.
Times: The Kremlin has already jailed or forced into exile just about all activists speaking out against the war; it has criminalized what remained of Russia’s independent journalism; it has cracked down on academics, bloggers and even a hockey player with suspect loyalties. Analysis: Good! These traitors should be thankful they weren’t publicly flogged and then hanged in Red Square.
Times: But nowhere are these ambitions clearer than in the Kremlin’s race to overhaul how children are taught at Russia’s 40,000 public schools. Analysis: The hand that rocks the cradle rules the future. In this case, the cradle is in the hands of the good guys.
Times: The nationwide education initiatives, which start in September, are part of the Russian government’s scramble to indoctrinate children with Mr. Putin’s militarized and anti-Western version of patriotism. Analysis: The Slimes didn’t complain about “indoctrination” when NGO-engineered Russian school books containing Globalist propaganda and even chapters on US history and presidents started popping up during the Yeltsin years.
Times: A ninth-grader, Irina, said that a computer class in Moscow was replaced by the viewing of a state television report on Ukrainians surrendering to Russian troops and a lecture explaining that only information from official Russian sources was to be trusted. Analysis: The Slimes dug up a little Russian traitoress named Irina– probably coached by her bitch of a mother (assuming these people even exist) — and interviewed her by phone (supposedly).
Times: She soon noticed a transformation among some friends who had been initially scared or confused by the war. “They suddenly started repeating everything after the television.” Analysis: Repeating the TV News is suddenly bad? Idiotic Irina sounds like one of them “conspiracy theorists” now.
Times: Irina said in a phone interview alongside her mother, “They suddenly started saying that this is all deserved, that this had to happen. They couldn’t even attempt to explain this to me.” Analysis: Allow me. It’s very simple, Irina. You see, the CIA/Mossad puppets based in Kiev have been oppressing the Russians in the east for years while threatening to extend the reach of the violent NATO war machine 800 miles closer to the heart of Russia itself. Putin ain’t putin (pun intended) up with it — nor should he. Understand?
Times: Irina said that when she challenged her friends about Russian war crimes, they shot back: “It’s all propaganda.” Analysis: Irina’s friends are correct. The brainwashed one is Irina.
Times: Irina’s parents, driven in part by their refusal to raise their children in an increasingly militarized environment, left for Poland this spring. Analysis: Ah… so the red rats abandoned Russia! They are indeed traitors after all. Good riddance — filthy scum pigs. Wonder if this alleged family is actually even “Russian,” — know what I’m sayin’?
Times: In the city of Pskov near the Estonian border, Irina Milyutina (an English teacher) said that the children at her school scrawled Z’s and V’s — symbols of support for the war — on chalkboards, desks and even the floors. At recess, fifth and sixth graders pretended to be Russian soldiers. Analysis: The libtard traitor teachers have lost their students. Hopefully, they’ll soon lose their jobs.
Times: A proposed decree published by the education ministry shows that Mr. Putin’s two decades in power are set to be enshrined in the standard curriculum as a historical turning point. The decree says that Russian history classes will be required to include several new topics like “the rebirth of Russia as a great power in the 21st century,” “reunification with Crimea,” and “the special military operation in Ukraine.” Analysis: In other words, everything that yours truly wrote in “The War Against Putin” is about to be taught to millions and millions of Russian kids. Take that, Globalists!
Since Biden appointed the chief architect of the Ukraine coup, Victoria Nuland, to be the third top official at the State Department, one cannot realistically expect a change in policy from this administration.
There are significant parallels between the international crises in Cuba in 1962 and Ukraine today. Both involved intense confrontations between the USA and the Soviet Union or Russia. Both involved third-party countries on the doorstep of a major power. The Cuban Missile Crisis threatened to lead to WW3, just as the Ukraine crisis does today.
Cuban Missile Crisis and the current crisis in Ukraine
In 1961, the US supported the “Bay of Pigs” invasion of Cuba. Although it failed, Washington’s hostile rhetoric and threats against Cuba continued, and the CIA conducted many failed assassination attempts against Cuban leader Fidel Castro.
Cuba, seeking to defend itself, or at least have a means of retaliating in case of another attack, sought missiles from the Soviet Union. The Soviets agreed and began secretly installing the missiles. As a sovereign nation having been attacked and under continuing threat, Cuba had the right to obtain these missiles.
US President John F. Kennedy thought otherwise. Invoking the Monroe Doctrine, he said the missiles endangered the US and must be removed. He imposed an air and sea quarantine on Cuba and threatened to destroy a Soviet ship traveling on the high seas to Cuba. The world was on edge, and there was global fear that World War 3 was about to erupt. In my homeland Canada, we went to bed seriously worried that nuclear war would break out overnight.
Fortunately for humanity, cooler heads prevailed, and there were negotiations. The Soviets agreed to withdraw the missiles in Cuba. In return, JFK agreed to withdraw US missiles in Turkey aimed at the Soviet Union. The Cubans were furious, thinking they had been betrayed and lost their means of defense. But the Soviets had the bigger picture in mind, along with a US commitment to not invade Cuba.
The situation now in Ukraine has similarities. Instead of missiles in Cuba being a threat to the US, NATO in Ukraine is seen as a threat to Russia. NATO has steadily expanded east and installed missiles in Poland and Romania. Since 2008, Russia has explicitly said that Ukrainian militarization by NATO was a red line for them. Kiev is much closer to Moscow than Havana is to Washington. If it was justifiable for JFK to give the ultimatum regarding missiles in Cuba, is it not justifiable for Russia to object to Ukraine being a part of a hostile military alliance?
In 1962, the US and the Soviet Union realized that escalating tensions and hostilities must be avoided, and they turned to negotiations. They found a mutually acceptable compromise.
The situation seems more dangerous today. Instead of seeking an end to the war, the US and NATO are pouring in weapons and encouraging more bloodshed. It appears to be a proxy war with the US prepared to fight to the last Ukrainian. There are calls to escalate the conflict.
Knowing the background to the current crisis is essential to understanding Putin’s actions. Unknown to most Americans, a crucial event took place in 2014 when a violent US-supported coup overthrew the democratically elected Ukrainian government. US State Department official Victoria Nuland handed out cookies as Senator John McCain encouraged the anti-government protesters. In a secretly captured conversation with the US Ambassador to Ukraine, Nuland selected who would run the government after the pending coup. In the final days, opposition snipers killed 100 people on both sides to inflame the situation and “midwife” the coup. Oliver Stone’s video “Ukraine on Fire” describes the background and events.
On the first day in power, the coup government issued a decree that removed Russian as a state language.
Within weeks, Crimea organized a referendum. With 85% participation, 96% voted to leave Ukraine and reunite with Russia. Why did they do this? Because most Crimeans speak Russian as their first language, and Crimea had been part of Russia since 1783. When Soviet premier Khrushchev transferred Crimea from the Russian republic to the Ukrainian republic in 1954, they were all within the Soviet Union.
In Odessa, anti-coup protesters were attacked by ultra-nationalist thugs who killed 48, including many burned alive as they sought refuge in the Trade Unions Hall. In eastern Ukraine, known as the Donbass, the majority of the population also opposed the ultra-nationalist coup government. Civil war broke out, with thousands killed.
With the participation of France, Germany, the Kiev government, and eastern Ukraine rebels, an agreement was reached and approved by the United Nations Security Council. It was called the Minsk Agreement. Russia has repeatedly encouraged the implementation of this agreement. Instead of negotiations and peace, the Kiev government and NATO have done the opposite. Since 2015, there have been more weapons, more threats, more NATO training, more encouragement of ultra-nationalism plus NATO military exercises explicitly designed to threaten and antagonize Russia. This is not speculation; it is described in a 2019 Rand report about “Overextending and Unbalancing Russia.”
Endangering the world
The Biden administration appears to want to prolong the conflict in Ukraine. President Biden declared in a “gaffe” that Putin must be replaced. Defense Secretary Austin has said the US goal is to “weaken Russia”. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton thinks Afghanistan in the 1980s is a “model” to follow in Ukraine by bogging Russia down in a protracted war. Republican and Democratic senators Graham and Blumenthal visited Kiev on July 7 and called for sending even more weapons. There is evidence that the US and UK have been advising Ukrainian president Zelensky to NOT negotiate.
The Need for Courage and Compromise
With war and bloodshed happening now, we need cooler heads to prevail as in 1962. We can have a LOSE – LOSE situation, endangering the whole world, or a compromise that guarantees Ukrainian independence while providing security assurances to Russia.
JFK had the courage and wisdom to resist the CIA and military generals who wanted to escalate the crisis. Does Joe Biden? There is a huge difference between the two presidents. JFK knew war first hand. He was injured and his brother died in WW2. He became an advocate for peace. It may have cost him his life, but millions of people were saved. In contrast, Joe Biden has been a proponent of every US war of the past three decades. Not only that, he was a major player in the 2014 Ukraine coup and aftermath.
Since Biden appointed the chief architect of the Ukraine coup, Victoria Nuland, to be the third top official at the State Department, one cannot realistically expect a change in policy from this administration. Neo-cons are in charge.
If we are to avoid disaster, others must speak up and demand negotiations and settlement before the situation spirals out of control.
