A Week in the Life of the Empire

The Saker – The Unz Review May 9, 2019

Introduction

It is sometimes helpful not to look at any one specific issue in detail, but rather make a survey of ongoing processes instead. The resulting picture is neither better nor worse, it is simply different. This is what I want to do today: to take a bird’s eye view of our suffering planet.

Putin trolls the Empire

It is all really simple: if the Ukrainians will give passports to Russian citizens, and we in Russia will be handing out passports to the Ukrainians, then sooner or later will will reach the expected result: everybody will have the same citizenship. This is something which we have to welcome.

Vladimir Putin

It appears that the Kremlin is very slowly changing its approach to the Ukrainian issue and is now relying more on unilateral actions. The first two measures taken by the Russians are maybe not “too little too late”, but certainly “just the bare minimum and at that, rather late”. Still, I can only salute the Kremlin’s newly found determination. Specifically, the Kremlin has banned the export of energy products to the Ukraine (special exemptions can still be granted on a case by case basis) and the Russians have decided to distribute Russian passports to the people of Novorussia. Good.

Zelenskii’s reaction to this decision came as the first clear sign that the poor man has no idea what he is doing and no plan as to how to deal with the Russians. He decided to crack a joke, (which he is reportedly good at), and declare that the Ukrainian passport was much better than the Russian one and that the Ukraine will start delivering Ukrainian passports to Russian citizens. Putin immediately replied with one of his typical comebacks declaring that he supports Zelenskii and that he looks forward to the day when Russians and Ukrainians will have the same citizenship again. Zelenskii had nothing to say to that

Zelenskii finally finds something common to Russia and the Ukraine

I have been thinking long about this “a lot in common” between Ukraine and Russia. The reality is that today, after the annexation of the Crimea and the aggression in the Donbas, of the “common” things we have only one thing left – this is the state border. And control of every inch on the Ukrainian side, must be returned by Russia. Only then will we be able to continue the search for [things in] “common”

Vladimir Zelenskii

Well, almost. He did eventually make a Facebook post in which he declared that all that Russia and the Ukraine had in common was a border. This instantly made him the object of jokes and memes, since all Russians or Ukrainians know that Russia and the Ukraine have many old bonds which even 5 years of a vicious civil war and 5 years of hysterically anti-Russian propaganda could not sever. They range from having close relatives in the other country, to numerous trade and commercial transactions, to a common language. The closest thing to a real Ukrainian language would be the Surzhik which is roughly 50/50 in terms of vocabulary and whose pronunciation is closer to the south Russian one than to the Zapadenskii regional dialect spoken in the western Ukraine and which is used (and currently imposed) by the Ukronazi junta in Kiev.

The malignant manatee threatens the planet with fire and brimstone

We have Pompeo, a malignant manatee looking to start wars in which he will not risk his flabby amorphous ass also parading his Christianity. Bolton, a mean sonofabitch who belongs in a strait jacket, at least doesn’t pose as someone having a soul. And the Golden Tufted Cockatoo, too weak to control those around him, preening and tweeting. God save us.

Fred Reed

The term “malignant manatee” is not from me, the brilliant Fred Reed came up with this one, but I can only fully endorse it because it fits. Perfectly. And our malignant manatee sure is on a roll! Just this week he managed to threaten Venezuela, Iran, and even Russia and China together. I think that it is high time to declare that Pompeo is a bona fide nutcase, a dangerous, arrogant and ignorant psychopath whose crazy statements represent a direct threat to the entire planet. Not to say that his pal Bolton is any less crazy. Now combine these two rabid thugs with the spineless “Golden Tufted Cockatoo” (to use Fred Reed’s equally hilarious but accurate characterization) and you see that the planet is in big, big trouble.

Turns out that Putin is a crypto-Zionist and an Israeli puppet

Here I won’t even bother with any quotes. The alternative Internet/blogosphere has, again, been hit by a wave of articles declaring that Putin is Netanyahu’s puppet and a crypto-Zionist. I have debunked that nonsense in the past (see here and here) and I won’t repeat it all here. Besides, what this surge in “Putin the Zionist” propaganda is, is not so much the result of a gradual realization about the true agenda or Putin himself as much as it is, yet again, a desperate scramble for clicks. I already discussed that recently too (see here). I will just reiterate my conclusion here: clickbaiters are never experts and experts are never clickbaiters.

Frankly, to all those who email me and ask “Is it really true? Putin is an Israeli puppet? He helps Netanyahu in Syria, does he not?!” I would suggest simply looking at what the Israelis and Zionists write about Putin (for starters, you can click here, here or here). Even better, ask the defenders of Putin the crytpo-Zionist to explain the hysterically anti-Putin campaign the US legacy Ziomedia has been engaged in for the past years! But don’t hold your breath for an answer – since Russia has comprehensively foiled all Israel’s many plans for Syria, it takes a remarkable determination not to see that Putin is hated by Neocons and Zionists alike, and for good cause, I would add.

Oh, and Putin is a crypto-Muslim too!

Yes, besides being a crypto-Zionist, Putin is also a crypto-Muslim. This latest nonsense usually comes from Alt-Right circles who can forgive Putin his friendliness to Israel, but not to Islam. These are the folks who believe that Putin is not a real defender of the “White Race”. They are opposed by those who believe that Putin and the Moscow Patriarchate will somehow jump-start the “Christian West”. We are talking about some hardcore “single-issue” folks here whose main disagreement is whether Jews or Muslims are to be hated (and feared!) most.

[Having had to deal with both groups myself – I have been accused of being a Jew, a Jew lover and a Muslim and a Muslim lover many times! – I know that reasoning with these folks is a total waste of time. Their paranoid hatred is completely incompatible with any fact-based and logical discussion. Besides, by arguing with them you threaten their income and livelihood – which due to their lack of expertise depends entirely on their ability to generate clickbait revenue. If you do engage with them, they will call you a Jew-lover or an Islam-lover and that’s it. Not worth your time IMHO].

The quasi-comical truth is that the Alt-Righters don’t get Russia *at all*. They keep transposing their narrow horizons on a nation with which they have absolutely nothing in common, not even religiously or racially (even if they think otherwise). Hence their love-hate relationship with Putin: on one hand, they would love to have a champion like Putin (Ann Coulter or Milo Yiannopoulos do not qualify), but on the other, they hate Putin for not endorsing their racist and fascist agenda. Truth be told: Russia has no use for these intellectual midgets.

Russia is “selling out” to the Taliban?

Well, since we are making a (tongue-in-cheek) “inventory” of all of Putin’s (and even Russia’s) sins, let’s include cozying up to the Taliban (who even agreed to put on Saint George’s Ribbons!) and… … and what exactly is happening here?

How about trying to bring peace back to Afghanistan? You know – the same thing Russia is doing in Venezuela, in Syria and elsewhere. This implies talking to the other side, and even striking smiling poses when asked by the press.

Needless to say, the thugs running the AngloZionst Empire have accused Russia or aiding and even arming the Taliban. And why not? This is no more ridiculous than saying that Saddam and Iran are helping al-Qaeda, or than saying that Russia “hacked” DNC computers, or told Maduro not to run for his life. Hey! We are living in “Skripal times” and the rules of evidence have changed to “highly likely” – so why not claim that Russia is also selling out to the Taliban (maybe even on Netanyahu’s orders?).

In the meantime, Russian soldiers are busy ducking missiles…

Yep, apparently unaware that their Commander-in-Chief is a puppet of both Israel and the worldwide Islamic Ummah, Russian servicemen are ducking missiles in Syria. The latest attack saw them shoot 36 missiles (and one targeting drone) out of the sky. This is good news, of course, but this just goes to show that these (US and Israel backed) Islamists shooting these missiles have not been informed that the Russian military in Syria is here to help Netanyahu and Trump. Somebody should probably tell them

Conclusion: just one more crazy and terrifying week, with many more to come

I tried to be a little tongue-in-cheek here, but the reality is that what is taking place before our eyes is both absolutely insane and most terrifying. Why? Because the world is now ruled by a most dangerous gang of ignorant thugs who are very rapidly losing their grip on our planet and who is simply neither intellectually equipped to understand, nor deal with this very complex and rapidly changing situation.

What we are seeing is a full-spectrum collapse of the unipolar world and its gradual, but also inexorable, replacement with a multi-polar world in which things like “speaking with your adversaries or even enemies” becomes the norm rather than the exception. Even more importantly, this is a world in which US threats always fall on deaf ears simply because nobody takes the US seriously anymore. While the US military probably has the capability to re-invade Grenada or “bring democracy” to the inhabitants of the North Sentinel Island – no adults in the room will be impressed (least of all the Iranians!).

It is this quiet indifference which enrages the likes of Pompeo, Bolton or Trump – for all their narcissistic chest-thumping – they are, and will forever remain, the ultimate losers – folks who simply couldn’t get *anything* done. Even more terrifying is their sense of total impunity. If Obama was “democracy with a human face” then Trump is “democracy with a simian face” – not much better.

When I think that a “Golden Tufted Cockatoo” (to use Fred Reeds wonderful image) has the authority to press the nuclear button I feel terrified. I also realize that the survival of the human species will depend on Putin and Xi and their ability to gradually disarm or neutralize the US threat without triggering a nuclear war.

These are truly terrifying times. If you are not terrified, then you are delusional.

But if being terrified is a natural and absolutely normal reaction, we need to overcome it and fearlessly resist. Like Maduro does, surrounded by his men.

This refusal to be afraid, even while being terrified, is how we will eventually defeat the Empire!

Venezuela is, by far, the weakest link in the chain of resistance to the Empire. But look at these faces! All I can say is this: may the courage of the kids protecting not only Maduro, but also the sovereignty of their country, be an inspiration to us all, no matter how terrified we are.

UPDATE: turns out that it was not Russia or Cuba which are responsible for the failed coup. According to Neocon US Senator from Florida, Venezuela regime change crusader Marco Rubio, it’s the Chinese! I wonder whom the US leaders are going to blame next? Any guesses?

  1. BY THIER FRUITS SHALL YE KNOW THEM
    Putin has rebuilt the Christian churches destroyed by dacades of jewish rule in Russia
    Muslim and Christians get on well and asist each other
    Putin does not allow homosexual perversions to be taught in schools or TV subliminals
    he has made the life of the lower economic groups so much better, you can say well Hitler did all this too,
    but Putins plan has been so impresive a recent poll in cambridge magazine said readers saw putin as the best leader on the world stage, and most of all
    he was the only one not in the pocket of the jews

  2. IAN HUNTLEY
    Huntley was sentenced 15 years back to 40 years in prison to make sure he never gets out to tell his story
    Ian Huntley and his girlfreind Maxine Carr both appeared on TV Behavoural and voice experts did not think they were at all guilty for the killings of 10 year old Holly and Jessica, Huntley has said yes he did it, while Maxine has insisted all along they did not do it and her sentence was for not admitting any part in the crime.
    The bodies of the 2 little girls were found beside the perimeter fence of Lakenheath air base here in the UK.
    Why would Huntley take the bodies and lay them in one of the most CCTV watched places in the world, because Nuclear weapons are stored at Lakenheath it has sound and vision monitoring all through and the surrounding area.
    Yet the Air base commander would not help in any way, yet secretly sent home to the USA Ted Studebaker next day, an airman with sexual convictions against children
    The fact that the public more and more are saying they also believe they did not do the killings, is shown by the amount of marriage proposals both received while in prison.
    It is said that just as Sirhan Sirhan Mark Chapman and others were brain washed to admit to crimes and pleaded guilty so it was with Huntley.
    The investigator Joe Vials looked into the case at the time and back then said they did not do it, Tony Blair was just about to take us into a war o the people of Iraq
    and could not have any bad publicity about a US airman killing 2 small girls
    so Tony Blair is alleged to have said
    “find a scapegoat quickly, we need to put this to bed ”
    This comes from from no less a source that Tonys ex wife, the loathsome Cherie Blair
    Its time now we had a proper enquiry, involving the US air base and all those involved in the fit up.
    Jow Vials who said all along Huntley did not do it, was murdered 2 years later in 2005, his death certificate says heart attack.

  3. Questions on Putin – Ray Novosel observes:
    In July 2016, Russian president Vladimir Putin approved a package of laws that ushered in tighter restrictions on largely Christian missionary activity and evangelism despite prayers and protests from religious leaders and human rights advocates,. The amendments, included laws against sharing faith in homes, online, or anywhere but recognized church buildings.

    Putin has compared Lenin to that of a saint and declared that Soviet communist ideas “came from the Bible” clearly proving that Putin’s thinking is and remains a product of Jewish Bolshevism. This would also strongly suggest that his avowed Christian faith is fake – just like the Spanish Marranos; Jews who pretended conversion to Christianity for convenience, but who continued to practice Rabbinical Judaism in secret. In fact one of the greatest minds of our time – Bobby Fischer – was quoted as saying: “Soviet Communism is basically a mask for Bolshevism which is a mask for Judaism.”

    Because he openly pretends to be a Christian, he is thus seen by the Russian Orthodox Church as almost messianic, not because of his merits for Christ, but for making Russia a great power again – clearly his doing. And Putin sees himself the same way. As a Royal Arch Freemason, he will consider himself to be a God and honour the Masonic God, Lucifer.

    Recently an anonymous former MI6 pupil writes: “I was recruited into British Intelligence in 1979. I was then used and abused as ‘zygote’ from that point on. I was also programmed by a Masonic cult (Royal Arch Freemasonry) to anoint the anti-Christ and then Messiah. They chose their ‘anti-Christ’ in 1979. A young Russian officer from the KGB called Mr Vladimir Putin.”

    The Washington Post 20 Jan. 2016 reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed to members of the European Jewish Congress, that Jews facing a rising tide of anti-Semitism and bigotry farther west should move to Russia, where he said they would be better accepted. Readers of the Jerusalem Post have chosen Putin as their person of the year.

    In July 2014, Vladimir Putin met with a delegation of rabbis, led by Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, former Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau, Chief Rabbi of Russia Berel Lazar (Chabad Lubawitsh, and rabbis of the Rabbinical Center of Europe (RCE). Rabbi Yosef began by saying “according to the Jewish tradition, your leadership is decided by the kingdom of G-d, King (God) of the world, and therefore we bless you: Blessed is the One who gave of His glory to flesh and blood.”

    So what does this term “Blessed is the One who gave of His glory to flesh and blood” actually mean?

    The Australian Journal of Jewish Studies. Jewish Prayers for the Government: The Talmud (TB Berakhot 58a) reported that in ancient times the people were agog to see the king, Jew or gentile. A benediction was required by halakhah (Jewish law): On seeing a Jewish king and his court, it was Barukh.shenathan mik’vodo levasar vedam, “Blessed be He … who gave some of His glory to flesh and blood”

    Putin was ‘anointed’ in 1993 and rapidly rose up the ranks of the KGB to become spy chief. Later on to become acting Prime Minister of Russia and finally the President. This would NEVER have happened in a totally Jewish controlled Russia if he were truly Christian
    In Nov. 2013: An historic agreement was signed by European and American rabbinical councils, in which world rabbinic leaders declared that the Chief Rabbinate of Israel leads the Jewish world. Deputy Minister of Religious Services Rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan (Jewish Home/Bayit Yehudi) also signed the treaty. These rabbis who met Putin in 2014 represent the very top of the Pharisaic NWO pyramid Jewry: Rabbis Yosef and Lau represent the Rabbinate of Israel.

    Putin damaged himself with people who have a moral conscience when he recently met with the criminal-in-chief of the Israeli state and treated Netanyahu as if he were not a war criminal who belonged swinging from a scaffold, but a world leader worthy of Russia’s recognition. This deliberate act of folly deflated Putin’s reputation as a leader who stood for moral outcomes and not merely for self-interested, negotiated outcomes.

    Therefore the High Priests of Judaism have anointed Vladimir Putin to be King of the Jews, thereby declaring 1) Putin is Jewish – not just by heart, as he has always shown, but also genetically 2) he is either to rule the “pious Talmudic” Rothschilds, the Jewish Supreme Court of whom in Jerusalem is the supreme Temple of Masonry – or rather take his orders from them. Putin today lives like a king in every way.
    The clear fact is that the God of Judaism is Lucifer, including Freemasonry in general – please make no mistake about this. It clearly appears that Putin has been appointed King of the Jewish NWO world on behalf of the governing world Pharisee rabbis – the Kehillah.
