$40 billion is still a great deal of money – even in the Biden Thing’s America. Except it’s not going to help Americans. Rather, the Biden Thing has taken $40 billion out of the pockets of Americans, to finance all-but-war with nuclear-armed Russia by arming and abetting Ukraine.
When the government – and the corporations that own the government – want war, they usually get what they want.
Some 108 years ago, the government of Woodrow Wilson and the arms peddlers and financial interests behind Wilson wanted war with Germany – something few if any Americans wanted as they’d be the ones paying for it, in blood and treasure. To drag them into what was then styled the “war to end all wars,” Wilson’s government colluded with Britain’s government and the interests that owned both of them to arrange a pretext. A passenger liner called the Lusitania was loaded with war materiel and provocatively sailed into the war zone. The Germans rose to the bait. A submarine fired a couple or more torpedoes into the Lusitania’s flanks and she quickly sank – resulting in the drowning of about 1,198 “innocent civilians,” which they were.
But the governments of America and Britain weren’t.
They knew that, by goading the Germans into sinking Lusitania, they could feign outrage and cause Americans to actually be outraged. Sufficiently so as to drown out any voices who might raise a hand and ask why Lusitania, a passenger liner (loaded with war material from America meant to help Germany’s foe in the war) was sailed into the war zone, right in front of German subs.
Instead, Americans were roused to blood lust over “the hun” and sent to die (and kill) in a war that was as relevant to them as a wall phone is to a Millennial.
Some twenty years after the “war to end all wars,” another war began. The government – and corporate interests – of the United States were, once again, extremely interested in getting Americans to fight in it. But – chastened by the carnage of the prior war – few Americans were interested.
First, the same method was tried. All-but-declare war on Germany, by all-but-formally-allying America with Britain. Well, ally America’s munitions industry and so on with Britain. Destroyers and other war materiel financed by Americans to protect America were “lend-leased” to Britain, a very provocative act, as far as the Germans were concerned. American naval vessels helped British vessels track and hunt down German vessels, including the famous German battleship, Bismarck – whose position during the course of its one and only sortie was relayed to the British, who had lost track of her – helping to enable them to eventually find and sink her.
This time, however, the Germans did not rise to the bait.
The government and corporate interests of the United States were stymied. The war – with Germany – would have to wait. But not for long. The government and corporate interests of America were able to get Japan to rise to the bait. Cut off her oil supply and present her with a fait accompli. Japan decided to attack – and it wasn’t a “sneak” one, either. Abundant evidence suggests the American government and the interests that owned it then – and own it still – knew what the Japanese were going to do.
In any event, it was predictable what they would do.
The interests that run things want another war – possibly, a nuclear one – for reasons that aren’t fully known but which can be broadly understood, because they are always the same. A war would do what wars always do – in addition to killing people. It silences them. Particularly as regards impolitic questions about what the government has been doing to them.
Here are the post-war words of Germany’s former Reichsmarschall, Herman Goring:
“Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America nor, for that matter, in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship. … [V]oice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”
And it works very well.
It appears to be working, again. But, appearances can be deceiving. While there is revelatory unanimity on the Left and the Right for risking nuclear war war over Ukraine – in terms of the punditry apparat of Left and Right – do the people who will die as a result of this war, if it comes, agree? It doesn’t appear to be so, for now. But what if the interests that control the government manage to get the Russians to rise to the bait?
How much more baiting will the Russians abide?
And will Americans tolerate it? Will they be fooled by it, if the bear takes the bait?
They will certainly be the ones paying for it, if he does.

Continuing from the Moon of Alabama piece on LRC today:
“The use of ‘pre-emptive strike’ is somewhat misleading. In fact the Ukraine started the war on Wednesday, February 16 2022, when its forces near the Donbas republics began preparatory artillery strikes for an all out ground attack on the Donbas republics.
“The February 15 report of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine recorded some 41 explosions in the ceasefire areas. This increased to 76 explosions on Feb 16, 316 on Feb 17, 654 on Feb 18, 1413 on Feb 19, a total of 2026 on Feb 20 and 21 and 1484 on Feb 22.”
So the narrative that the Russian attack was an unprovoked assault on an innocent nation by the madman Putin is a ridiculous lie.
One trait that warmongers share – in addition to extreme stupidity and recklessness – is an absolute inability to put themselves in someone else’s shoes: to see things from the perspective of those on the receiving end of the American state’s aggression.
From Vladimir Putin’s recent speech to the Victory Parade on Red Square, as reported by Moon of Alabama:
“Last December we proposed signing a treaty on security guarantees. Russia urged the West to hold an honest dialogue in search for meaningful and compromising solutions, and to take account of each other’s interests. All in vain. NATO countries did not want to heed us, which means they had totally different plans. And we saw it.
“Another punitive operation in Donbass, an invasion of our historic lands, including Crimea, was openly in the making. Kiev declared that it could attain nuclear weapons. The NATO bloc launched an active military build-up on the territories adjacent to us.
“Thus, an absolutely unacceptable threat to us was steadily being created right on our borders. There was every indication that a clash with neo-Nazis and Banderites backed by the United States and their minions was unavoidable.
“Let me repeat, we saw the military infrastructure being built up, hundreds of foreign advisors starting work, and regular supplies of cutting-edge weaponry being delivered from NATO countries. The threat grew every day.
“Russia launched a pre-emptive strike at the aggression. It was a forced, timely and the only correct decision. A decision by a sovereign, strong and independent country.”
Russia is playing chess. The US elites are playing checkers. Russia will not take the bait.
I agree with your assessment. Unless there is an actual “NATO” (i.e., US) invasion of Ukraine, Russia will just continue to do what it has been doing, much to the keens of feigned outrage by the US. But there is a chance the US – the government thereof – will, in desperation, actually send US troops to Ukraine, in order to deliberately push the button, so to speak. This because the people who control the government in the US desperately need a war to maintain themselves in power.
Rand Paul breakin’ balls on the Ukraine billions.
Yeah, if baiting doesn’t work a good false flag will do the job. Gulf of Tonkin incident, USS Liberty come to mind.

One has to wonder…is there better “bait” than the US Speaker of the House or FLOTUS going into a war zone? By sending these women in there was the hope that tragedy would befall them that could be blamed on Russia?
‘$40 billion out of the pockets of Americans, to finance all-but-war with nuclear-armed Russia by arming and abetting Ukraine.’ — eric
Formerly neutral Finland deciding to join NATO is a fresh provocation.
Then Finland’s 830-mile border with Russia can be militarized, with NATO missiles pointing at Russia from mere yards away.
NATO is bound and determined to have a splendid little … errr, BIG … war. And ‘we’ won’t stop poking the bear with a sharp stick till we get the desired defensive growl.
It’s FUBAR. You just can’t fix compulsive yankee dickhead aggression, financed by parties who make tons of money from it.
Yes. Especially alarming is that all this “aid” serves the purpose of attriting away Russia’s conventional forces… which in turn leads to Russia resorting to its nuclear forces. Do these fools not realize this? Or perhaps they do.
Wall Street: “Buy the mushroom cloud.”
It’s the 21st century version of Baron Nathan Meyer Rothschild’s achetez aux canons, vendez aux clarions (“buy on the war cannons; sell on the victory trumpets”) in 1815.
But it only works if you “win” — not bloody likely if nuclear winter starves all but the plutocracy in their bunkers.
This was a great piece by Eric I never gave a thought to the sinking of the Lusitania as the precept for US involvement in WWI, but the pattern clearly established by then to use these events from Pearl Harbor to 9/11. I’ve been pondering why they needed Orange Man Bad/Operation Warp Speed out of the White House SO bad. He clearly likes the jabs…was he too timid to start WWIII? They’re hell-bent on war like they’ve got daily quotas of Satanic Sacrifices to keep their power
Thanks for the kind words!
In re the Orange Man: I think he is very bad and have written a number of articles explaining why I think so. His strangely passive behavior during the “pandemic” was the initial cause of my double-take as regards his role. Then there was his “warp speeding” of “vaccines.” Which he continues to amen, notwithstanding the incontrovertible evidence that they are not vaccines – and aren’t “effective” or “safe.” This is evil. Lately, the spray-tanned buffoon has endorsed Mehmet Oz for senate.
It is clear. Orange Man is Bad.
If I recall, I do believe the German Imperial Embassy sent out flyers or newspaper ads to the American public stating that they, the Americans, should think twice before they board any ship that sails into a WAR ZONE and to do so at their own risk. The Germans knew darn well that the US might put Americans in the line of danger.
Also Eric, I’m 35 (millennial) and I have used a wall phone many times. I’ve also used my grandparents rotary phone too. Other than that, great article.
Thanks for the kind words! And – I’m glad you’re hip to wall phones. I still have one, too. And you know what? The thing is 20 years old and still works as well as it did 20 years ago – and better than any brand-new sail fawn. Call never drop. It works even when the power is out. I never have to worry about a dead battery. And it doesn’t data mine me.
They aren’t fools Eric, they are literally insane.
It gets more terrifying by the day and it all started with an invisible most likely non existent bug some 2 years ago .Who would have thought it may all end with nuclear war ,the end for humanity?From day one I rejected all the monsters where dishing out .Sadly when I look around me and the few others are a minority .In Vancouver all one has to do is go to a store and 85% are masked up and look like insects not normal humans .That alone tells me there is no hope since they are on the side of evil .
In my area – SW Virginia – the Acolytes of the Holy Face Diaper are in the definite minority now; perhaps a fourth of the people you see. Like you, my nose wrinkles in disgust when I see them, not solely because they look disgusting – “pups” in training – but because of what that look represents. While I will defend anyone’s right to wear one of these things, I nonetheless regard them much the same as I would anyone who wears a KKK sheet or a Nazi armband.
If the numbnutzes running the country (into the ground), seeing their political fortunes go the way of the Titanic and the Lusitania (which were ‘sister’ ships) actually think provoking an UNNEEDED war with the Russian Federation is what’s needed to stay in power, then we’ve got a HUGE problem: A ROGUE, unlawful government, that’s actively working against the interests and SAFETY of the People of the United States…ie., they’re TRAITORS.
I’m beginning to think the same thing ugg, especially with Musk’s acquisition of Twitter. When all those so-called “followers” started vanishing all at once, it became apparent that they were all just a bunch of computer generated bots. I suspect the same is true for YouTube, Google, Facebook, etc. etc. etc. It’s all fake.
There were some pictures a while back of cars turned over from what was claimed to be a missile attack, but not a single window in any of the nearby buildings were broken. Most of this nonsense is staged, and they barely make an effort to hide it.
abraham lincoln did the same thing in 1861, when all other southern forts were turned over to the Confederate gov. without incident, lincoln lied about abandoning fort Sumter, instead he sent a resupply ship baiting the Confederate gov into firing on the fort.
Yup – in re the Confederates being goaded into “firing the first shot.” I have always thought it would have been sounder policy – psychologically – to leave it to the Yankees (and Lincoln) to initiate overt hostile action. Then they would have appeared to be – and were – the aggressors, attacking people who simply wished to be let alone and to go their own way.
The war against the South was not initially popular in the North; Lincoln was (s)elected by a minority of the electorate. Had the South played its cards differently, is might have been possible for them to establish their independence from the North.
In fact, the North was fine with the secession, Until they realized they weren’t going to be able to tax rape them anymore. And that Southern free ports would put their high tariff ports out of business.
85% of the taxes collected were from the South. and the money was used to build competing factories in the North.
The State had perfect legal authority to fire on the fort. The Constitution requires the consent of the State legislature for the Feds to own any property within a State. When S. Carolina told them to get out, they had no legal option but to do so. Hence they were trespassing, in force.
Perhaps ol’ “Dishonest Abe” thought it’d give him the pretext to send an invading army to put down the “Rebellion” quickly. But that backfired, BIG TIME, in that, until then, seven states (South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, and Texas) had declared secession and formed the CSA government, provisionally, at Montgomery, AL. However, the Mid-South slave-holding states (AR, MO, TN, KY) and the Mid-Atlantic “slave” states (NC, VA, MD, and DE, and DC itself) were “on the fence” over the issue. Virginia, and please keep in mind there was no WV back then, was itself quite divided, with long-standing issues also resulting in profound disagreement over secession.
Robert E. Lee, who’d recently been the Commandant at West Point, and who’d led the forces that put down John Brown’s insurrection at Harper’s Ferry, was offered command of the new Army of the Potomac, and had VA stayed in the Union, certainly would have led it, likely to a quick victory over the CSA. But the manner in how Fort Sumter was handled inflamed passions in VA that those that held power were quite willing to secede, even though this certainly meant war on VA’s soil. Of course, the “mountain folk” of the western part of the state weren’t too happy about it, and met in what was known as the Wheeling Convention, to declare themselves the legitimate and “loyal” VA state government, and eventually, in 1863, this led to the creation of WV. Lee, of course, though he’d have preferred to stay with the US Army, felt he owed his loyalty to VA first, and thus resigned his US commission and accepted command with the CSA of the Army of Northern Virginia. The rest is “history”, which didn’t conclude until FOUR YEARS later, at Appomattox Court House.
Another fine article, sir.
The abominable leftists in the DC Swamp are trying hard to keep the last 5,000 years of war alive and well. I am siding with Putin and the Russians in the latest conflict. The EU along with the numerous ex-Russians states and the Middle East make up a conglomerate of malfunctioning entities that use history and past transgressions to determine their existence today.
Hate and mistrust rules, at least where government leaders are concerned. I think most of the people in these places would get along fine with each other if there were no governments.
Who can understand what exactly is going on over there? You will not get the truth from the media, ever. Not from government, ever. $40 billion going to the Ukes is disgraceful and the backing of Russia into a corner makes no sense…unless you like nuclear wars.
Thanks, Tom –
I am hoping sanity ultimately prevails. I think we’ll find out, soon enough. Probably before Fall, if not sooner.
Eric, the Progs have to do something before the mid terms. Their own researchers are telling them they are going to lose at least the house (and perhaps the senate). Thats in spite of all of the cheating they are going to do. Not to mention quite a number of RINO’s are getting exposed and opposed. Unless something dire happens, they are going to lose very badly. Then all bets are off. Especially considering that one of the most frighting sentences in the english language is “Chairwoman Marjorie Taylor Green”… 🙂 Which is why I expect something really nasty to happen between now and mid terms.
I think so, too. In re “something nasty” happening between now and the mid-terms. It has to happen. Because they – the Left – will not go gently into that good night. It is very important to understand this. For the Left, power is everything – and they will stop at nothing to keep and maintain it. “Conservative” politicians (and pundits – Sean Hannity being the archetype) are generally just small-minded greedheads, interested in money, chiefly. In this way, they are as naive as they are corrupt. As well as impotent in the face of the Left.
And then there are the Finns and Swedes. What can they be thinking? (Oh, yeah, $$$$U.S.$$$$ in abundance.) Finland, with its neutrality, coexisted and traded with the Soviets and now the Russians. Now they are asking for bombs, free, from the east. Even if the U. S. of A. is going to pay for the physical damage, they better start looking for more cemetery land. Crematoriums are not the answer. They are net consumers of energy.
The sock-puppet, money-pit NATO doesn’t have any idea where to stop and say “Let’s talk.” Ol’ Joe will be proud because they emulate him. Not to say that The Donald would talk, either. His summation of every conversation was “My way or the highway.” as he shredded treaties. I tend to give him a bit of the benefit of the doubt. He might have even been willing to tell the CIA the same thing. But after the special screening of the Zapruder footage, he was a pushover. But in the long run, his only merit was what all my friends say: “He is not Hillary!”.
Excellent Piece Eric!!
Thanks, 37 –
My purpose in writing these things is to try to budge the rock, even if it’s only a little. In the hope that, by budging it, others may join in and – in time – the rock might actually move…
I’m with ya Eric. It does get frustrating with so many people attune to mainstream disinformation/misinformation.
As Mark Twain once said, if don’t read the newspapers you’re uninformed. If you do read them, you’re misinformed.
Gotta know what the ENEMY wants me to think, so I can act in contrary fashion.
Great article Mr. Peters! One of your best efforts. Thank you.
I have become immune to government, if still affected by it. It has to be an age thing. If you live long enough, are not stupid and remember what you have seen. It then is impossible to believe them.
I truly feel sorry for the Ukraine armed forces.
They are simply being reduced to fertilizer on the “Eastern Front”.
Russian artillery is legendary (See “The Varsity Fight of WW2, Ostfront”)….
The Russian 152 “mike mike” howitzers are nothing to be trifled with..as the AFU is experiencing first hand….
Furthermore with air supremacy, I would be surprised if the Russians are NOT USING thermobaric (fuel air explosives) to simply stomp (initial blast).. followed by a total oxygen deficit..(suffocate) whatever remains…the perfect “remedy” for “dug-in” troops.
Stop the useless killing for Wall St….Yesterday afternoon!
That’s funny. The Ukrainians have brought the Russia invasion to a standstill and is starting to push back. It is the Russian Army that is being transformed into fertilizer.
I agree with stopping the useless killing, however. Putin needs to take his troops home and get them outside of the internationally recognized boundaries of Ukraine. Only then will there be peace. Russia started the war in 2014, using a coup which he created in his propaganda, and is now using the same sort of agitprop The KGB used for years.
Oh look a normie showed up to bring the neocon narrative into the discussion! What a crock of shit. The idea that the Russian General Staff has not considered a counterattack is what’s “funny” and the idea that after such the Russians are gonna turn tail and run is comical.
Come back in a week and tell us about this purported “standstill”.
And you got your facts backwards. Obama/Biden started the war in 2014 with their Maidan square CIA-led coup and deposed a democratically elected president.
Hey but don’t let me stop your neocon bullshit. Go ahead, let us have it! Can’t wait to see just how much people here are gonna “like” it.
Which dept. do you work for?
CIA, … DHS, … DIA, … White House & the satanic singing bimbo directly?
Which dept. do you work for?
CIA, … DHS, … DIA, … White House & the satanic singing bimbo directly?
keep dreaming hillary
LOL! Quit believing the lying jewsmedia. Putin hasn’t even begun to use the resources at his command. He’s shown great restraint, but it has to end sometime. The egg painters killed 13,000 Russian speakers and he had to do something.
Well… Thats the latest Empire propaganda. But the facts are rather different. The best intel is that the Russians continue their methodical advance in the east and south. Crushing the UKR army, which is cut off from resupply and reinforcements. They have near total air superiority in that area, as anything from drone to plane that’s not theirs gets quickly knocked down. The entire east and much of the south is falling under their control. The billions of logistics that the Empire and its vassal states are trying to ship in, gets destroyed as soon as its identified. They have knocked out the bridges over the major rivers, and are also targeting the railroads that are being used for logistic supply. If their so called “president” cared about his people, he would have long since agreed to the reasonable
terms the Russians have offered. But he is almost as useless as our current “president” is, and perhaps even more corrupt. All he cares about is his foreign bank accounts. The Empire is so used to bullying weak, third world countries that they have no idea how to deal with a near peer competitor. Especially one that has as many nukes as they do. Hell, even their ill advised sanctions have back fired. Once again, we see why the Empire has lost every war its been in since world war II.
I’m a tad confused? I thought it was the US encroaching on Russia’s (buffer zone) territory from 1993 up to the 2014 “Victoria Nuland revolution”… and then some.
With respect to “The Pussy Russians”…just for the hell of it, check out how our “woke” military has been doing….Westpac crew of the John McCain in an idiot collision, et al..Bonhomme Richard…(40,000 ton WASP class landing ship) fire in San Diego…1 Billion write-off….sending grossly obsolete M113 APC’s to the AFU???….canon fodder.
Check out the geography of Ukraine…IDEAL Artillery country and the Russians have “been there, done that”..before..just saying…
Heck, rumor has it that the Ruskie hardliners are advocating a full on “Murikan Style”…..”Curtis LeMay does Japan” number on the forward ARU trenches…you know the usual,
“F–k Casualties…we are murika”!!!!…Alas, President Putin seeks to limit casualties in the entirely USA provoked episode.
Just think, USA Philosophies now being exported to Russian Hardliners! How Grand..
Semper Fi, Mac
I think I’ve had a “Eureka moment” about President Putin’s SMO (Special Military Operation) objectives!
It appears Russian forces are about to effect a “junior Stalingrad” on the AFU. Those damn Ruskies are about to encircle Severnodonetsk…
(No worries, by definition, US Citizens are woefully ignorant of World Geography)…so I’ll just say it’s a city in northeastern Ukraine.
Once that operation concludes, the Russians will probably go for Odessa and cut Ukraine totally off from water transport through the Black Sea….
Oops.. no more Yankee Hegemony “wet dream” of a naval base in the area.
Subsequently, Poland, “licking at the chops” for reestablishing it’s former glory will “peacekeep” Western Ukraine (permanently)…into it’s new border…and the remaining rump state will be left “high and dry”..literally, while Zelensky enjoys his mansion in Florida.
PS check out Southfront and vineyard of the saker websites for what is really going on…..Why would I ever believe “Commie propaganda”…????? Because it’s not.
Welcome to Earth!
Major truckstop chains Loves and Pilot warning about imminent diesel shortages in the eastern half of the US
10:02 AM · May 11, 2022·Twitter Web App
US east coast has half the refining capacity that it had in 2008.
Meanwhile, some of our limited supply of diesel is being exported to Europe, where the diesel shortage is even worse thanks to their embargo of Russia.
Will Traitor Joe act to protect America’s interests by banning exports?
To ask the question is to answer it.
Ironically Pilot is about to become a wholly owned Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary, probably to create a network of EV charging stations across the country.
The same Berkshire Hathaway that sells/leases all of the train tanker cars that carry oil instead of pipelines across the country because pipelines are bad.
No conspiracy theory. The Head Gecko lays it all out in the annual reports.
Without diesel they can’t make money. Without money, how are they going to accomplish that?
40 billion USD to Ukraine is theft and treason – the money is going to line the pockets of well placed individuals – Biden is literally sending money to his cronies in Ukraine – and that money will do nothing to stop Russia’s victory, it will only make some people extremely wealthy. In fact the crisis has been created to ripoff the US Treasury.
All the weapons being sent to Ukraine are being blowed up. Biden might as well take the howitzers and put them in the scrap bin because upon arrival Russian spots them on satellite and sends in a cruise missile and then they are turned into scrap iron.
EP quote: “The interests that run things want another war – possibly, a nuclear one – for reasons that aren’t fully known but which can be broadly understood, because they are always the same.”
If you want to know why we have these wars look to see who benefits. Defense contractors. Banksters. And of course Jews. Jews run the Biden administration – but Christians dare not say that because of their beliefs in a Jewish savior – thus Amerika is screwed because a foreign parasite has taken over the state and the majority of Christians will not challenge these people.
Many people do not understand the dire threat of allowing Jews to run the government – they are working for their tribe and the Rabbis want the Goyim (their term for us, non Jews, cattle) to either be enslaved or dead. So we do know who is doing this to us – Jews – just as their holy books instruct them.
So for instant it is a proven fact that Israel did 911. (If you don’t know this then you are highly misinformed – go research it!) Why did Israel do 911 as a false flag and blame it on the Muslims? They did it so the US military could be manipulated into smashing the enemies of the Jews around Israel.
So as a matter of fact US foreign policy is for the benefit of Jews – and nearly every Christian is in on it – nearly 100% of the Christian churches in Amerika (32,000 of them) support the war against Muslims. Why? Because religion is about power and Christians secretly want Muslims destroyed.
So when it comes to stealing $40 billion for Ukraine, who do you think is behind this monumental theft? Simple. It is Jews. Jews like Anthony Blinken, Victoria Nuland, Robert Kagan. The Neocons are mostly Jews. The MSM is owned and operated by Jews – so of course they are for it. No mystery at all who is screwing us. And who is Zelensky? A Jew who is getting the Goyim murdered in Ukraine.
So the fact is Jews are ripping off the nation and no one will talk about it because when it comes to Jews they get a free pass every time. Not from fear of retribution – but from religious beliefs – people actually believe these conman are god’s chosen.
Yukon Jack: You lost me on the Jew, Christian and Muslim aspect of your argument.
I agree with ML it is not about jews, christers, muslims or pagans. It is about the owners. The ones that own most everything. They keep out of view, if they believe in anything it is Satan their leader, first of liars. He will screw them as that is what Satan is.

some wef history
the World Economic Forum was co-founded by Maurice Strong, who was the main promoter of the climate change movement.
the much more exclusive World Forum of 300 which was created by Maurice Strong in 1982 and was co-founded with Klaus Schwab as his assistant.
Prince Charles hired Schwab to run the WEF.
Great Reset” Schwab’s son is married to a Chinese woman. The Schwabs are China lovers. The “build back better” part of the great reset agenda intends to turn the west in to China.
The Origins of the World Economic Forum Go Back to the Third Reich nazis.
schwab runs the wef his family was connected to the nazis in germany.
World Forum leaves a blind spot to the alien agenda in the the creation of the plan, the blind spot also leaves out Dr Muller, creator of the UNESCO programs and the Common Core education system.
Muller and Strong created of the United Nations University at Mt Rasur where they communicate with a demon called Rasur,
Maurice Strong was creator of Agenda 21 along with his buddies Prince Phillip and Charles and Ted Turner. Someone said Turner put up the georgia guidestones that says the population should be 500 million only. Persons will be coerced through lies, drugs, fear, and pain to surrender themselves, their egos to the collective consciousness.
The blind spot leaves out the involvement of Nazi German Vril psychics who were involved
at the Maurice Strong Baca Grande hippie commune where Laurence Rockefeller say’s he met the Devil just prior to presenting the plans to the first World Forum in 1982 in Vail Colorado.
We don’t associate Eugenics with David Rockefeller, like we do with Hitler, but it was actually the Rockefeller Foundation that first did the research,
their groundbreaking 1930 work on Eugenics, an idea that became so popular in Europe Hitler monetized it domestically to justify global domination.
Beginning in 1930 the Rockefeller Foundation provided financial support to the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Anthropology, Human Heredity, and Eugenics, which later inspired and conducted eugenics experiments in the Third Reich.
Rockefeller got his monopoly on drugs, and Big Pharma and Rockefeller Medicine were born – and has only grown bigger and more terrible since, now routinely bribing doctors to prescribe their toxic and side effect-laden pills, not to mention their autism-causing vaccines, all based on the germ theory. Rockefeller, the AMA and Big Pharma are now all key aspects of the NWO (New World Order),
The nazis adopted it and promoted it. “The infection theories (germ theory) were only established as a global dogma through the concrete policies and eugenics of the Third Reich nazis. Before 1933, scientists dared to contradict this gerrm theory; after 1933, these critical scientists were silenced.”
now we have the allopathic germ theory nazi medicine used exclusively worldwide and big pharma is the most profitable business on the planet, thanks to pasteur, rockefeller and flexner.
the modern monetary system is based on keynesian beliefs.
Keynes is heralded as the guiding light of the New Deal (and, as such defended by modern “Green New Dealers” and Great Reset technocrats wishing to impose a top-down system of governance onto the world),
This will be seen clearly in 1) his devotion to the theories of Thomas Malthus, 2) his promotion of eugenics as a science of racial purification and population control, and 3) his general devotion to World Government as a leading member of the Fabian Society. The fabians bringing communism to all western countries.
Depopulation: The provable reality was that Indian famines were coordinated tools of population control by the Malthusian elite of the British establishment who considered “war, famine and disease” as the gifts nature gave the strong to manage the weak.
read again: “disease” as the gifts nature gave the strong to manage the weak. now the great reset wants to use poisonous injections for depopulation.
Thomas Malthus (a British East India Company economist) stated in his famous 1799 Essay on Population:
“The power of population is so superior to the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man, that premature death must in some shape or other visit the human race.” gates wants to use vaccines.
“We should facilitate, instead of foolishly and vainly endeavoring to impede, the operations of nature in producing this mortality; and if we dread the too frequent visitation of the horrid form of famine, we should sedulously encourage the other forms of destruction, which we compel nature to use. In our towns we should make the streets narrower, crowd more people into the houses, and court the return of the plague.” today: herding the useless eaters into large cities.
In his May 2, 1914 lecture Population, Keynes argued that government should “mould law and custom deliberately to bring about that density of population which there ought to be” and that “there would be more happiness in the world if the population of it were to be diminished.”
now the gates led nwo/ccp/wef globalists are saying after great depopulation reset you will own nothing and be happier.
Hitler himself was not only a devout eugenicist (whose racial purification policies emerged through the funding of the Rockefeller, Carnegie Foundations as well as British establishment), but was also a devout Malthusian saying:
“The day will certainly come when the whole of mankind will be forced to check the augmentation of the human species, because there will be no further possibility of adjusting the productivity of the soil to the perpetual increase in the population.”
now gates is saying the same thing, depopulation is good.
After the war, eugenics-promoting organizations and think tanks changed their names while continuing their work, morphing into new forms by the 1960s such as the
NOTE :environmental movement, transhumanist movement, including the pharmaceutical/healthcare sector. now we have the wef pushing this with the great reset.
cv19 religion/climate change/depopulation agenda………it sounds a bit like The church of euthanasia: The church of euthanasia “devoted to restoring the balance between Humans and the remaining species on Earth. “Save the Planet, Kill Yourself”
the climate change/global warming hoax is an excuse for a cull. the satanists will do it with their cull of useless eaters, they already warned you of the depopulation agenda, there was silence, that is implied consent, the cull progresses.
Get this: the two top psychos that are administrators for the banksters, gates and soros, have no education, they are morons.
The psychos running the planet: Mt Rasur where they communicate with a demon called Rasur.
Laurence Rockefeller say’s he met the Devil just prior to presenting the plans to the first World Forum in 1982 in Vail Colorado.
the pope is part of this cult.
The government/church/medical system is just a huge occult satanic death cult now
So then, who do you think “owns most everthing”? Whom do the laws and edicts in nearly every western nation shield from criticism, from historic scrutiny, and from the goyim even noticing their conentrated power? The international central banking cartel is dominated by old European banking and financier families such as the Rothchilds, Warburgs, Schiffs, Kuhns, etc whose vast global assets are legally immune from public auditing. You can say this may not be entirely “all about jews,” but as a centuries-old supremely nepotistic and “chosen” collective, they masterminded the debt money system and are most certainly its primary beneficiaries.
And, no, I shouldn’t even have to says this, but, given these dangerous times, when someone tries to bring this into the public llight, it does not mean he wants to put 6 gazillion jews into ovens.
You’ve just described jews to a “T”.
Look up Jonathon Pollard. That will explain EVERYTHING!
Pollard caused the deaths of over 120 American spies according to VT editor Gordon Duff. He was the worst spy in US history, yet now is free in Israel. Netanyahu lobbied personally for his release and got it – because Amerikan politicians are whores of Israel.
Why did Pollard spy for Israel? Because he is a Jew, and that is what he says – without a shred of guilt. So here is the fact – all Jews are loyal to Israel first. So if you know that you should want no Jews in your military, intelligence, or government.
supporting Israel is treason
I do admit that he is over generalizing, but the reality of the Dynasties antics are quite real. I have never (and will never) blame Jews in general. They are just another tribe. But some members of their tribe have much to answer for. As for the Muslims, the same applies.
No argument that there is some kind of giant carefully well-planned strategy taking place as we live and die in 3/4 time. Seems like Jews, Muslims, and Christians don’t always see eye-to-eye, are always involved, looks like it from here.
Genghis Khan united Shiites with the Christians to slaughter the Sunni in Baghdad ca. 1248 CE. Been going on for centuries, doesn’t stop, ever. Charles Martel sent the Saracens packing at Tours in 732 CE. Some people have to put a stop to the shenanigans.
I don’t know if the Jews are the masterminds of the current plan, in control of the machine, can’t really go there. They know what money is, no doubt about that one.
Jews are almost as smart as the Chinese, however, the Chinese aren’t nearly as intelligent as your European/American continent Caucasians.
Canadians built the CF-105 Arrow. Lots of know-how up there in the Great White North.
Rocket surgeons at work, the Russians can build rockets that are very reliable. Might want to come to some kind of agreement and stop fomenting discord. You have to give them lots of credit. They’re not as dumb as I look. No more rides up to the Space Station from the Cosmodrome.
My experiences with the Chosen sometimes are not pleasant, you’ll be threatened with your life while being extorted for as much as you want to give. Write a check and buy the CDs. f’k you!
It was an outrage, I glared at the stupid jackass wanting to knock teeth out of his head. Did it on a Good Friday. Good riddance and don’t come back, get the hell out of here, ya thief. You have to forgive the sins of the sinner, but you’re not going to get away with it at any time, not even once.
Angered me to no end. Taking advantage of a congregation is what you’re doing, it’s abuse and wrong.
You have to be able to immediately recognize an obvious attempt at a swindle. Don’t let it happen.
Can’t we all just get along?
“Jews are almost as smart as the Chinese, however, the Chinese aren’t nearly as intelligent as your European/American continent Caucasians.”
Well, actually, in terms of academic verbal and numerical mean IQ scores – which admittedly do not address other other measures such as creative intelligence or innovative genius- your order should be reversed. Jews rank the highest, followed by northeast Asians, and then Whites of European ancestry. Hispanics are next, and Subharan Blacks are last.
But the riceballs have a hive mentality.
banksters are second level……
at the top the controllers the elite nobility in the background, always hiding, nobody talks about them, the control group.
2nd level the banksters provide financing for the elite nobility
3rd level more banksters
4th level down the administrators, gates, schwab, etc..
5th level the political prostitutes in the foreground, corrupt , bribed, owned by the elite
the politicians just follow orders from their bosses the elite.
Dr. Marc Faber says these governments steal between 5% (honest governments) and 100% (crooked governments) of the money collected, borrowed.
6th level down the enforcers
at the very bottom the little people, the common people, paying for everything, used and abused.
one elite example……..Prince Phillip, late husband of Queen Elizabeth II said ….“In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation.” he also said the world’s population should be reduced from 7 billion to one billion, his son charles thinks the same
Elite nobility families at the top:
• House of Bernadotte, Sweden
• House of Bourbon, France
• House of Braganza, Portugal
• House of Grimaldi, Monaco
• House of Guelph, Britain (the most important one)
• House of Habsburg, Austria
• House of Hanover, Germany (the second most important one)
• House of Hohenzollern, Germany
• House of Karadjordjevic, Yugoslavia (former)
• House of Liechtenstein, Liechtenstein
• House of Nassau, Luxembourg
• House of Oldenburg, Denmark
• House of Orange, Netherlands
• House of Savoy, Italy
• House of Wettin, Belgium
• House of Wittelsbach, Germany
• House of Württemberg, Germany
• House of Zogu, Albania
• all the families you will find on the Windsor family tree
These “conmen” along with Freemasonry are at the core of antichristian activity.
As Christ stated, their father is the devil and they hate him (Christ). They’re satanists, literally.
I believe that we are watching Rev. 20:7-9 unfold.
Keep your powder dry, get right with God via Christ, and focus on the important things in life.
People are people Yukon Jack. When you make it about ethnicity, you derail, deflect and deceive people into believing that it’s all about Jews which is probably what they want you to do. It just escalates their antisemitic narrative for them. Focus on the fundamentals, e.g. defense contractors, bankers etc.
You can get whipped up into a lather, and maybe get a few other people as well, but in the end they’re focus is on Judaism rather than on dealing with the problem which is to ban, or at least stop patronizing corporate Amerika.
What is the USA interest in Ukraine? Why are we sending 40 more billion – money like that could fix roads, etc in our own country.
$40 billion for what? NOT A DAMN THING. It is high treason.
Paul Craig Roberts asked the same question. There is no rational reason for our nation to be involved in Ukraine, and certainly provoking Russia in a nuclear conflict is not in our interest.
I agree, obviously. Also, I’d add that if the wails about “human rights” and defilement of “democracy” are truly the reasons for arming Ukraine and all-but-overtly fighting Russia, then what about the Ugyhurs in Chyna? Actual genocide. Death camps. By a regime overtly more loathsome than Putin’s. Yet, not even sanctions for Chyna.
I wonder why that is.
“People are people….”
That’s exactly the kind of pablum that Jews find very easy to sell the goyim on, while they ruthlessly prosecute their ethnocentric Judaic conspiracies.
“When you make it about ethnicity, you derail, deflect and deceive people into believing that it’s all about Jews which is probably what they want you to do.”
Wait, what? Who is “they” in that sentence? If it’s the Jews, then “they” would seem to have you so hopelessly twisted up you have no idea whose ox is being gored. If “they” in you sentence is NOT the Jews, on the other hand, then it would seem you are simply blind to the real threat.
“Focus on the fundamentals, e.g. defense contractors, bankers etc.”
So….the Jews, then?
“in the end they’re [sic] focus is on Judaism rather than on dealing with the problem which is to ban, or at least stop patronizing corporate Amerika.”
“Corporate Amerika” is merely one vehicle of Jewish totalitarian dominance. When “Corporate Amerika” is reduced to rubble, its very demise will serve as a prelude to the rise of Jerusalem as the World Capital. You exemplify the hopeless state of the goyish mind—you quite literally can’t see the Jewish Lie because you’ve in fact lived your entire life inside a choking tangle of Jewish mendacious narratives. “Corporate Amerika” indeed!
Freelance Full-of-sophistry, The Hebrew scriptures depict a people who are told to destroy the inhabitants of the land their God is giving to them. They fail to accomplish their task so they are then told to engage in usury. Charging interest on loans is an instrument of war which as you point out is eagerly gobbled up by the idiotic goyim.
The whole Central banking system is fraudulent, immoral and downright evil, and yet all the moronic goyim need to do is simply stop borrowing money. How much simpler could it be? Instead, their solution is to attack Jews, but even their own texts point out that those who claim they’re Jews really aren’t Jews at all which is why I am pointing out that you can attack Jews till the cows come home and you will never eradicate the problem.
People have been trying to do this practically since Israel became a tribe of people. Evidently, you’re not paying attention to history, economics or simple logic. You’re just another one of those dupes who wants to paint an antisemite target on their forehead. Good luck with that. Oh, and get those mortgage and car payments in on time or you’ll be walking back and forth between the soup kitchen and your cardboard box.
Well, the elites learned their lesson from Vietnam: it won’t be Malia and Sash Obama, Hunter Biden, Ivanka Trump, Chelsea Clinton, Jenna and Barbara Bush or the Harvard Class of 2022 dying for Ukraine’s borders (while our borders remain open).
It’ll be farm boys from Republican states who join the American mercenary army to “fight for freedom” right out of high school because they are promised free college tuition by the recruiter (and if they survive the war they can listen to lesbian sociology professors lecture on transgenderism on the VA’s dime).
One important point about the Lusitania: it was a British ship, not an American ship, sunk in 1915.
Wilson ran for re-election in 1916 on the slogan “He kept us out of war.”
ONE MONTH after his second inauguration in 1917, he asked for a declaration of war.
I don’t know; death may be an equal-opportunity thing if someone pushes the proverbial “button.” If two massively nuclear-armed powers can have a hot war without using those strategic weapons, then it’ll be as you say. But, even though one of the late Tom Clancy’s war-porn novels said that the USSA and Russia could have a non-nuclear hot war, well, I kind of think the late Tom Clancy was full of shit.
I wish I could say I’m surprised by the public support for the Ukraine side of this conflict, but after the US Psychopaths In Charge turned its guns on its own people with the pretend, dangerous, and ineffective “vaccines”, I’m not. Most swallowed the equine excrement, without any ketchup. Many several doses of it. So what WON’T they swallow? Give them a little ketchup, and they’ll swallow any false flag attack the Psychopaths In Charge create. It’s a sure fire way to quell dissent. If mushroom clouds start rising over our local cities, there won’t be anybody dissenting. But after all, they are psychopaths.
I live on the Southern most peninsular tip of Maryland. When the hypersonic multi-entry nukes come for DC to the North and the PAX River Naval Air Command to the south and whatever the hell bases in VA to west, even if I could somehow survive the blast, there’s no way out.
Yeah, I know… move! To do so, I’d take worse of a hit than my moribund 401K.
Nope. I won’t even get the satisfaction of having the psychopaths being taken out with me. They’ll probably be happy that all of our American relics will be vaporized. Because then, once they resurface from the bunkers under the Rocky Mountains, they’ll be able to that much easier Build Back Better.
If it’s any consolation to you, EM, psychopaths can’t build–they’re nihilists by nature who only know how to destroy. If they vaporize the productive class, they’re basically finished, too.
The politicians seem yo care about it, because it appears to have been their favorite financial laundromat.
No one else, as far as I can see, really has any reason to care except maybe in a general humanitarian sense.
The apparent support is a mirage created by media.
Spot on, ugg!
Here is a read that IMHO is worthy,,
That cartoon of the diapered head with the “current things” listed in the brain under #6 is awesome.
Paul Craig Roberts finally exits the denial stage.
This was all set up by the coup of 1787 where the Articles of Confederation were unlawfully abandoned. The big problem politicians had with the Articles? The Articles required ALL states to approve any amendment.
With that precedent it’s little wonder why today the government does what it wishes with nary a peep of outrage from its citizens. Our collective eyes are wide shut and the new Ministry of Truth is there to keep it that way.
The biggest problem was there wasn’t any profit in the Articles of Confederation. Boy howdy, there is now. For both the Military Industrial Complex, the Medical Industrial Complex, and all the parasites they feed. Especially the political parasites.
Yep John, that was the real coup. Hell, we should’ve just had a big treaty that said we will defend each other & not block trade or travel. The end.
With all due respect to you and Mr. Roberts, there is a fundamental understanding that Jefferson, et al, had which we seem to no longer possess. That is, Rights are endowed by The Creator and pre-exist the establishment of The State. In The Declaration Jefferson stated that “in order to secure our Rights governments are instituted…deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed”.
What this means is non-government individuals and institutions are equally threatening to our God Given Rights. These days we seem to think that only government can infringe our Rights when, in truth, other can do so as well. In other words, government should be going after Zuckerburg, etc for abusing our Rights.
Don’t fully trust PCR.
I personally don’t trust anyone that makes a living & retirement off of the government, particularly in this arena, then retires and all of a sudden finds their conscience & integrity.
I worked for the feds in this arena for seven years over 20 years ago and quit for that reason, integrity.
Even if he’s completely forthright, working for the establishment for a career, I have no idea why/how one could possibly see things clearly. It’d be like choosing to work in a Twilight Zone episode for 40+ years, then claiming that you understand reality. It makes no sense.
Maybe he’s purely on the level, but I have my suspicions.
Isn’t it amazing that our supposedly “divided government” always manages to have near unanimity when voting for war/weapons. Biden was asking for $33 billion and Clowngress voted $40 billion. Hey, what’s $7 billion dollars, especially when it isn’t coming out of their pockets. That’s probably just the first payment of many more to come; as one pundit said the USSA is going to fight Russia to the last Ukranian. Can almost hear the champagne corks popping in the executive suites of the MIC.
Usgov’s $40 billion for Ukraine is more than 60% of Russia’s entire military budget.
Yet thanks to the vast graft of US military contractors, the neocon-infested State Dept, and the hopelessly corrupt Ukie gov (ask Hunter Biden), that $40 billion lootfest won’t recover even one inch of Ukraine’s lost territory.
There is no plan. We’re funding the ARVN (Army of the Republic of Viet Nam) all over again, expecting miracles from a sordid bungle in the jungle (or schlep on the steppes, as the case may be).
Dirty old turtle Mitch McClownell is fine with this new, hopeless permawar, as are most of his useless R-party colleagues.
This could be the dying US empire’s last failed military adventure. Sucks to be us …
The US empire hasn’t won a conflict since the war of 1812. The losses became very obvious after the Marshall Plan Giveaway of WW2.
Highly likely most of that 40 billion will find its way back to the very DC parasites it came from. The Military Industrial Complex is nothing if not grateful. Curious, is it not, that in spite of having a defense budget more than twice that of both Russia and China combined, US hypersonic weapons are a decade or more behind both. Needless to say, much of that budget is not being spent on defense.
But there was no $20 billion available for the wall.
What you call fished-in. Might as well use a Norwegian hook, you’ll land whatever is on the line.
The Allies included the Soviet Union during WWII. Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin sat down and hashed things over. Played gin rummy after the all important conference.
My paternal grandparents were both born near Odessa in Ukraine. I’m half Ukrainian, a Ukrainiac. They emigrated in 1910, otherwise they probably would have been victims of Holomodor.
Once again, Khrushchev was born there and the Russians won’t have it any other way. It’s like Mother Russia being denied an offspring. Not gonna happen.
It’s dog fight, the Neo-Nazis know how to make life miserable for some reason out there. What the hell you doing that for?
Far be it from me what those reasons are, don’t have a dog in the fight. This is 2022 CE, something is all wrong, nothing is right.
Do a Celebrity Death Match Biden vs. Putin, a match of worthy opponents, let the chips fall where they may and call it done, over, fini, the end.
Call it a draw, there are no winners.
drumphish, you know why Ukraine is a big deal, because it is one of the spoils of the Cold War. Just like the uranium grab, the gelding of the Soviet space program (and turning it into a taxi service), the Debeers looting of their diamonds… taking the best farmlands that also happen to be the best route for pipelines to the EU is just another prize that western bankers demand. Putin isn’t playing along and must be eliminated. The west wants their payoff because they think it will square up decades of deficit spending that never got paid off.
I don’t support the Ukrainians. I don’t support the Russians either. As we say in NW Florida, we don’t have a dog in this hunt. Yet here we are giving billions to a regime that gave the president’s LITERAL crackhead son a seat on the board of its largest natural gas company and also employs the parasitic offspring of Pelosi and Romney among others.
I don’t want war over nothing. Why we aren’t trying to negotiate a settlement between the puppet we installed (the man who played piano with his genitalia) and Putin is very telling.
The Russians will win this war. Just look at the map. I feel bad for the Ukrainians, but again, if we had a wartime consiglieri rather than a dementia-addled diddler figurehead as “president,” we wouldn’t be in this situation. Lots of innocent people will die because the ruling class that pervades everything can’t have someone who sends mean tweets in the White House.
Refusing to take the bait is part of Sun Tzu.
The United States of 1776 and 1787 didn’t even last 100 years before Lincoln destoyed it. His criminal war set the precedent for all the corporate warmongering, income taxes, ruinous debt, censorship, jailing enemies without trial (Jan 6 protestors today) etc etc which is why he’s idolized of course.
Spot on analysis and history Eric.
The United States of 1776 barely lasted 10 years before Hamilton & Madison destroyed it.
Can any historians out there answer this question? We all know about Lincoln, Wilson and all of the post Cold War presidents. Why isn’t Madison in the Rougue’s Gallery of villains?
Lincoln was a war criminal! The United States was born from this betrayal of the founding principles of These United States. You are among the few of us that understand.
The Tyrant Lincoln is one of those responsible for our current sorry situation. He is regarded as a “Great Leader”, by those whose agenda is the ever increasing power of a centralized federal government. His regime laid the foundations upon which later tyrants (Wilson, FDR to name but two) have created the current dire threat to our peoples rights and liberties.
Wilson’s 1917 WWI propaganda department: The Creel Committee.
Wilson’s 1916 re-election campaign slogan was “He kept us out of war.”
“It works the same way in any country.” — Hermann Göring, quoted by Eric
Yup. H.R. 7691 (Additional Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2022) was whooped through the House last night by a 368 to 57 margin:
Slightly more than a quarter of R-party reps voted Nay. The rest joined their warmongering, big-spending liberal democrat colleagues across the aisle. ‘Not a dime’s worth of difference …’ as ol’ GW (George Wallace, not Bush) used to say.
It couldn’t have happened without the Lügenpresse. Once again we see that sheeple can be rallied to any cause, no matter how absurd and destructive, by 24/7 agitprop across all channels. You can program them like lab rats, stupid easy.
My R-party rep, despised by the Lügenpresse almost as much as Göring, takes the stance that defending our own southern border against invasion is a higher priority than funding a war between two former Soviet republics.
To me, H.R. 7691 is the ultimate declaration of Usgov’s neglect and contempt for its own people. As ol’ Neil Young said after four college students lay dead at Kent State U, ‘We’re finally on our own.‘
Why do I feel like Neil Young might be ok with this war though?
Is it because Neil is a jab zealot? There seems to be a correlation.
I sent my objections to all the Russia malarkey to my “representative.”
Fat lot of good that did.
War is the ultimate power of the State of government. War enables the government to confiscate resources, control the news via propaganda, dissolves opposition in congress, empowers whom is in power at the time. All those against are shamed and labeled as traitors. The Bite-Me administration needs war and another pandemic before the next election cycle so they can get the mules to stuff the mail-in ballots again. The democrat-Marxist are truly behaving as if they never have to run for election ever again.
Who are they going to get to fight their new war[s] because I ain’t no pawn for the democrat-Marxists nor are my grandchildren?

Yes. The great American tradition of manufacturing consent for war:
-USS Maine in Havana Harbor – 1898 Spanish-American War
-Lusitania – 1917 WWI
-Pearl Harbor – 1941 WWII
-Gulf of Tonkin – 1964 Vietnam
-Nayirah lie about Iraqi soldiers killing babies in Kuwait – 1991 Iraq War I
-Weapons of Mass Destruction – 2003 Iraq War II 1
[I’ve missed many others too – please add others in comments below.]
These fuckers have completely dismissed the concept of mutually assured destruction. With individuals having the ability to communicate globally, I hope to God this war-mongering propaganda will not be effective this time. Nuclear war is not something to play with.
– Qaddafi bad – 1986 – Libya
– David Koresh has an unauthorized church – 1993 Waco, TX
– Mass graves and ethnic cleansing – 1995 Bosnia
– 911 and WTC7 – 2001 Afghanistan
If I remember correctly, David Koresh went into town at least once a month for supplies, etc…he could have easily been arrested at that time, if so desired.
You forgot Fort Sumter.
But… But… But Eric, didn’t history end during the Clinton administration? After all, that’s when “everyone” determined that liberal democratic representative governments with a healthy dose of socialism are the only correct form of government. So any government that isn’t a liberal democaratic representative government with a healthy dose of socialism is fair game.
If that liberal democaratic representative government with a healthy dose of socialism (LDRGwS) can funnel a bunch of obsolete war materiel out to the “freedom fighters” under lend-lease so much the better. And if those stockpiles are refreshed by the only manufacturing base the country has now, even better still. So what if a few billion dollars go out the door? We’ll make it back with interest “when” the Ukrainians are victorious. It’s all on the PowerPoint deck that came from the Rand Corporation… didn’t you see it? Oh, no, because it was labeled top secret so no one gets to see it.
It’s (sadly) true. Also, that around the same time, all the leaders of these “democratic” governments were led by “presidents”… as opposed to general so and so… or Maximum Leader, etc.
As a German management accountant, things in Ukraine are pretty simple to understand.
a) Send weapons and mercenaries to keep the Russian busy.
b) Whenever somebody is killed, call it a war-crime and blame the Russians – even when Russian civilians are killed by Ukrainian goons. You might not stand a chance on the ground, but you can still win the war in the media, on Facebook and reddit. If events refuse to happen in reality, feel free to stage them.
c) Ukraine is highly in debt to western funds and financiers. The monthly payments (rate and interests) must be paid back in time, so the tax-payers` money “to help the Ukrainian people” will boomerang straight back into the coffers of western banks.
d.1) Send weapons that are far beyond their best-before date. This explains for example the rotten “Fire and Hit” and “Hit and Kill”-ratios for those Javelins ATGMs. You will save a lot of money for storing them and you have to buy new, better and more expensive ones as well.
d.2) Even better: Send weapons which are sitting around without use for decades. I am laughing in my sleep when I think about our Gepards: an anti-aircraft-35mm-twin-gun-system on a modified Leopard-1-chassis with two radars and at least five (!) seperat engines. One of the most complicated vehicles ever implemented into the Bundeswehr. You must be in my age (far above 55) to know how to operate this thing, and you will need weeks to learn only to move it around. Half a year in a simulator and you might start to understand how the radar works.
d.3) Nobody declares the delivered weapons a gift. Be aware that the remaining Ukraine, then a landlocked and depleted third-world-country, will be presented a hefty invoice for them. Dito for c).
I do not think that the Lusitania was a deliberate trap. But the men in power looked happily into another direction, when the Admiralty warned about her entering into infested waters, and let things happen as some sort of lucky coincidence.
U20 shot only one – her last – torpedo at the liner, and the crew was more than bewildered about the result. It was expected that a hit would damage her and use up valuable time and space in a dockyard, but her sinking (after an immense secondary explosion) was never foreseen.
The Lusitania would not inspire farmers and factory workers to go to the trenches. From their point of view it was pure foolishness by some wealthy US-citizens to travel on a liner – listed as an auxiliary by the Royal Navy itself – under the flag of a belligerent nation into a theater of war. Stupidity kills.
According to my experience the United States of America, the beaming light of peace and democracy, live for centuries under the curse to be forced kicking and screaming into a war by some evil foreigners they did never want to fight (very often inspired by a shocking event), but are remarkably well prepared for, and then turn out to be the biggest beneficiary. Huh. Strange pattern.
Without the US` intervention WW1 would have ended in 1917 on amicable terms because all sides were exhausted and no longer able to fight on. But who would then pay back the British loans to the bankers on Wall Street, when the Empire is broke?
I’m surprised, frankly, that the rooskies have been as patient, tolerant, & unreactive as they have been over the last several decades.
I agree except for one thing . they walked into the UUUUUkraaaaine. On the other hand, I think that the Russians would make an amazing ally against countries like china. I like their leader a lot better than presidents of the last 100 years.
If the US was standing on moral ground, they might have joined Russia in curtailing the ongoing genocide against ethnic Russians in the East. instead, the US is guilty of creating this mess when it overthrew the democratically elected government of Ukraine back in 2014. Likely with intent to create this conflict.
Nothing binds the USA together anymore except fear. The propaganda machine shrieks on but the people are isolated, families destroyed, and most either hate or are terrified of each other.
As faith in the printing press falters, our worthless dollars will simply pile up, impotent to alter the trajectory of this failed empire.
I also doubt Russia even truly functions as a separate nation any longer, this entire Ukraine thing seems to be a strange Hollywood production.
