I apologize for not updating this blog as often as many would like. Please do check in every 3-4 days!
I am enormously grateful to ALEXANDER MERCOURIS for plugging me hugely on his video blog. I knew Alex when he was a star writer (and I was a new addition) with Russia Insider, before the editor went off the deep end, and all the good in-house people quit.
Alex, at the time, you were right, I was wrong—Russia’s economy was in no danger zone. Russia’s not going anywhere.
I am grateful to the FBI for no longer polluting my comments section with calls for the destruction of the U.S. Congress, the U.S. Government (that I work for when not writing this blog), and even the USA itself. It only took a few “take a hike’s” from me. These guys are dumb.
They probably have me on a spreadsheet like, “First attempt, second attempt, affirmative response Y/N.” I’m on the same pay scale as these goons, as if I don’t know how they operate!
Northern front developments – and a lesson on Ukrainian PR
We will get to “Scarface” Zelensky in a moment.
According to multiple credible sources, Ukrainian forces have pulled out not only of Rubezhnoe but have also, as of yesterday, April 20th, commenced an organized withdrawal from Severodonetsk across the Severskii Donets river into Lisichansk.
Some elements are reportedly redeploying from Lisichansk in the direction of Popasnaia, which has been partially taken by Russian and Lugansk forces and is under great risk of being lost.
The Ukraine is clearly trying to plug the holes and create a more sustainable defense.
If Russian and Lugansk forces no longer have to storm Severodonetsk, that is a wonderful thing, not merely as it hosts a population of 100,000, but also as it is home to one of Europe’s largest (perhaps the largest) ammonia plants.
However, Lisichansk is so close (they are twin cities) that considerable damage to Severodonetsk is still a given unless the Ukrainians surrender wholesale.
(I should mention, Lisichansk and its entire vicinity, like Mariupol, is as Russian as can be, being one of the original centers of the “Russian Spring” in the Donbass. It’s well documented by video that roughly 2000 area residents and the local priesthood turned out for the funeral of the first three rebels killed defending the approaches to Lisichansk in May 2014. Speaking plainly without regard to “recognized international borders”, the area has been under U.S.-backed, Ukrainian military occupation since 2014.)
Also considering Russian activity in the area of Yampol’, roughly halfway between Slaviansk (Donetsk) and Lisichansk (Lugansk), it is clear the entire Ukrainian grouping in the Severodonetsk-Lisichansk agglomeration is under increasingly great risk of being cut off, not immediately but at least in terms of Russian and Lugansk ground fire control of the road approaches.
Ukrainian defenses in the Donbass and south of Izium have been weakened in recent days by the liberal application of precision distance munitions, including the use of possibly as many as seven Iskander tactical ballistic missiles (perfectly accurate, supersonic delivery of up to 680kg of explosives) PER DAY against Ukrainian field targets (e.g. platoon-sized checkpoints or company base camps) in these regions.
Just to give you an idea, here is an Iskander crew in action:
Hey, what about those Javelins? I thought they were supposed to solve everything. LOL.
In recent days, I have seen an unusual number of photos and videos showing five or ten dead Ukrainian servicemen at a time, and of course, this is but the tip of the iceberg, as Russia’s professional soldiers don’t play much with their phones, and in most cases, the photos/videos are taken by war correspondents, of whom there are not too many.
(CAUTION, BODIES, SOME OF THEM MANGLED. NOT FOR THE SQUEAMISH. IF YOU CAN’T HANDLE IT, DON’T LOOK.) For example, here, here, and here is what I found **just this morning.**
There is no question that the loss ratio of Russian and Ukrainian forces in eastern Kharkov province has been at least 3:1 in Russia’s favor since late March.
The Ukraine keeps sending more and more reinforcements to the area, but you might wonder, why do they keep fighting?
Perhaps because the new guys showing up, have been convinced they are winning, that one more push and Russia will be expelled.
Does anyone think Kiev’s lies and bullshit are directed only at foreign governments and publics? They are for domestic consumption also.
In the below video, Oleksiy Arestovich, special advisor to the President, and the Ukraine’s de facto “propaganda minister”, who has been quoted and cited extensively as a source for the Anglo-American MSM, says (in Russian):
“The idea of the Ukraine, one of the main national ideas of the Ukraine, is to lie as much as possible to oneself and to others. Because if one tells the truth, everything will collapse, and it would be necessary to invent something else. That’s our fundamental imbalanced contradiction.”
(I don’t know when this video was taken. It may be a few years old, in which case, it’s even more “on point”, as he would have been speaking not of daily war details, but of the entire nature of the post-2014 Ukrainian state. The man is a huckster, but he is highly intelligent. Him, and the “Ghost of Kiev.”)
Meanwhile, Russia’s losses have been so “catastrophic” (Vicky Nuland said almost a month ago that it was 10,000 dead) that in about the last week, MOST OR ALL Rossgvardia units not deployed to Kherson or Zaporozhia…..
…..have been sent back to their home stations in Russia. This has been extensively documented over video, I may include some footage in my next post.
Zelensky getting high on his own supply?
Today, we highlight Saint Zelensky, who took a video of himself while inebriated, and posted it on the Internet. Please see the video, below.
To all Capitol Hill staff who read me—remember, your bosses stood and clapped for this clown on the jumbotron.
I know it was a Pelosi stunt, but most of them went along with it eagerly, many of them with Ukraine lapel pins, talking about genocide and all that nonsense.
It’s a clown show. I was very generous with your party during the Trump years (you can look it up), but I’m never voting or giving your buffoon bosses another cent.
Why don’t they speak up for the January 6th prisoners who have been rotting in jail for well over a year, many with not even a trial date (while the State “searches for evidence” indefinitely), deprived of their Constitutional right to a speedy trial?
I understand, they think those Deplorable Scum are not their own voters. But the Democrats stick up for illegal aliens—the voting pool is malleable. And, your Voting Base sees what your priorities are.
I appreciate you reading me. Always keep in mind, Karma has not been cancelled.

Leaders in wartime tend to go for cocaine eye drops (Churchill). I voted coke like Montana and he looks like he’s been up for days.
Does anyone have a translation of Volodomyr’s inebriated comments into English? I voted for cocaine and alcohol, by the way.
He says, “What can I say? We work, we love, we thank (the flag), and we will defeat everyone.”
I have been looking at world events for a few years now, I started a YT channel (Brutuscass) for my ranting and rage against the machine during the Iraq war, I didn’t have many followers but there was one from the Ukraine that who seemed to take note of every word I said, this is most likely just a coincidence. But I would often point to things like the use of Memes and the danger the posed by mind control, it is worrying to see the very things I was warning about put into practise.
I would often point to the 1981 TV series the wave as a warning to people of easy it is to create a group on followers, I find in spooky when I look closely at the Azov emblem and note the wave at the bottom just under the wolfsangle.
There is certainly some serious mind control going on in all of this, substances in narcotic form are no doubt being used on some people.
does anyone know the german, i think ex military, guy mercouris referenced or promoted recently? i thought it might have been Kay-Achim Schoenbach but i dont think that guy is making commentaries. alexander mentioned the guy a few days ago and now im trying to fast forward through his lates commentaries to try and find the reference. i think he also mentioned a swiss guy, on the duran
Swiss guy is Jacques Baud:
If you pause the Selenski Video at 0:11 you will see a big fat white line of cocaine next to the paper sheets on his desk
Lol … one too many lines snorted 😁
Easy there tiger, we don’t want you to OD before you learn of the final tally of a stand up comedy f**k up, whom in an ironic twist of fate, presided over the demise of a nation…
Alinsky high as a kite as his county is destroyed as a direct result of Alinsky own decisions is really no surprise. How else is it possible for any person with any conscience left whatsoever to deal with the disastrous consequences of their foolish actions on the innocent population of their country that they lead. Similarly, as Germany was being destroyed by the allied powers Adolf Hitler had his SS doctors injecting him multiple times a day with a potent cocktail of opiates, coke and methamphetamine as coping mechanism.
Alinsky, hahah nice!
Thanks for the correction. Well I voted. High as a kit on coke..
Below is a video link of what appears to be Zelenskyy doing a Zoom conference with Elon Musk. On his table is white powder with a credit card right beside it. It’s cocaine of something like that.
It’s a fake.
Hollywood scriptwriters can’t make this stuff up. It appears like Zelensky is on a combination of heroin & coke. He and his cohort buddy Joe Biden will burn in the same cage in hell for the innocent blood these monsters have inflicted on the masses.
The only thing I disagree on is whatever pity you express for the Jan. 6 insurrectionists. Here’s a good survey of what ACTUALLY happened and who it was: https://youtu.be/jWJVMoe7OY0
New York Times? Seriously? You might as well link to CNN claiming that the Russians are losing the war in Ukraine.
Can anyone translate what he is saying in the video?
If you pause the video at around the 12 second mark when he turns the camera to his desk you can see cocaine on his desk in front of his family photo
You’re delusional man. That’s a reflection from the picture itself. ‘Breaking news’ doesn’t mean you should just make crap up as you go along because you think you’ve discovered something that isn’t there. Pathetic. “Oh, and look at all the ‘hangers on’ joining in on the delusion!” Sad, pathetic and predictable. There’s enough “there there” to not make stuff up. Maybe you need a better monitor, or means of slowing the video down, but you’re dead wrong on the lines. Get a grip.
Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Killensky’s a junkie
Strung out in heaven’s high
Hitting an all-time low.
Olodymyr Elensky is going to need a lot of blow as things blow up all around.
Re: Arestovich video, IIRC it’s from 2016-2017 or thereabouts; no newer than 3 years from now at least. That’s him speaking at an event about information management of some kind, details are foggy but, as is fashionable with this kind of people and particularly so in the Ukieland, they were being mockingly honest about their craft.
Here’s something to counter the trolls too: as a Russian myself, I don’t want to see the US destroyed. I wish the US population will be able to put their house back in order somehow, instead. We over here stand to gain little from a country the size of the US going nuts and going down, and a lot to lose from it lashing out every which way. We’d much rather see the US stable and able to correctly assess its national interests, not wasting away all its money on imperial overreach at the behest of migratory financial elites. An America that can actually be self-sufficient and feel proud of “made in USA” labels once again, and one where one could say “land of the free, home of the brave” without someone having the urge to snicker. We hope to see that in any significant nations (not by our power, though – we’re done with global messianism, “the rescue is the business of the imperiled” as a saying goes), but the US becoming its own self, living for itself and not as a vehicle for international cartels of metaphorical bloodsuckers would do the world a lot of good in particular.
Very well said.
Empire is a costly endeavour.
Will the adults ever sit around the table and make a deal that everyone can live with?
One can only hope…
I think we (USA) are at a serious crossroads. We’re too divided to survive in our present form and I don’t think our present political system is capable of “fixing” our systemic problems.
It’s critical that USD lose it’s reserve currency status. It is that no limit credit card that allows the government faction to pay for it’s corruption. Losing Reserve status will be devastating as the US will be functionally bankrupt. But it’s that or complete moral ruin. The economic devastation may still destroy us, but going through it may be our only chance.
This of course presumes that all this is just ordinary every day catastrophe and is not God Almighty preparing the world for his wrath and the return of His Son Jesus to rule over us with an iron rod.
his effect is sedate…..he is taking painkillers mixed with Klonopin at least
