The only medicine for stupidity, is reality
My headline graphic, above, is a collage of some dumb British scribbler’s headlines (or his editor’s headlines, as only independent bloggers write their own) regarding the Ukraine war.
If you’re on your phone and the print is too small to see, the headlines are mostly “Russia losing, Russia losing, Putin bucked up”, until the “Putin could be about to pull off a shock triumph” one at bottom right.
You can see he is starting to wake up.
It will be a rude awakening.
A reader reached out to me over my previous post, the one showing videos of grateful people in Svetlodarsk, who are so glad to see Russian soldiers all of a sudden.
He asked if perhaps I had made a mistake, and it was the other way around, that the Russians had retreated and it was Ukrainian forces who had entered the town.
This is how far GONE most people are in the “white” countries.
I have a good friend who was so sure that Ukrainian claims of a rape dungeon in Bucha (passed along without question by the BBC in mid-April) were true.
He said, surely they are investigating, and the evidence will soon come before the UN or the International Criminal Court or whatever. 25 females as young as 14, held for weeks in a rape dungeon by Russian forces, eight of them got pregnant, surely the evidence will come out, there will be testimony, etc. He was convinced!
I checked in with him on the one-month anniversary (May 15th) of the BBC piece, asking him how the “evidence” is coming along, because I hadn’t heard anything (it’s now May 30th and still nothing), and it looked like my “Bro, this is their daily Jello-on-the-wall, and after today, you will never, ever hear about this again” prediction had come to pass.
He responded, more or less, “Ho-hum-dee-dumm, surely something of some sort happened in Bucha, I dunno, it’s a weird situation, ho-hum-dee-dumm.”
They didn’t get him with the stoh-LLeNN ellek-shUn coverage or the “Pann-deh-Mykk of the Unn-vakk-syn-ay-TTed”, but they finally nailed him with the Ukraine.
It’s called Gell-Mann amnesia, look it up.
As soon as Russia came on deck, my friend “reverted” like the devolved otter in Zootopia.
He forwarded me endless tweets (many of them from “experts”) about how the Russian army is drunk, demotivated, starving, undisciplined, corrupt, out of fuel, horrible logistics, nothing works, etc. etc. etc.
Now, he gets that it will soon be over for the Ukraine. Gotta give him some credit for that, he’s among the first in the herd to catch on.
What about all the zombies who don’t get it yet? (First and foremost, citizens of the United Kingdom, who are the deadest, dumbest zombies in all of Christendom, and my sympathy goes out to all freethinking Brits reading this blog, I feel your pain.)
As usual, the zombies won’t ever admit they were duped. They will simply be re-directed by their puppet-masters to some other crisis or outrage.
As my loyal readers know, I expect, within the next year but probably much sooner, another wave of the KORONA, and it will hit the VAKK-SYN-AY-TTED predominantly, and lead to tens of millions of deaths (across the PFYE-ZZER’ed countries) within a short time. This time, even children (the PFYE-ZZER’ed ones) will not be spared.
See my May 23rd piece (“My son’s school shows you the future“) for my logic and further explanation.
At that point (if I’m right, we’ll see), the “white” countries who went with the JEEN THE-RAH-PEE “VAKK-SEENZ” (obviously not Russia and Belarus) will be in total disarray, and U.S. hegemony (along with all the TRRANNZ-JENDDER stuff) will collapse in a cesspool of piled-up bodies, disorder, hunger, and high/hyperinflation, and Russia will be on top.
People ask me “what’s the endgame, how does it end?” Above is my answer.
I believe there are no coincidences, and that the Ukraine situation and the KORONA are firmly linked (recall how one “replaced” the other without skipping a beat in February), and will together change our world completely.
Thus, when I write about the Four Horsemen, I mean it. Not in the sense of the end of the world, but in the sense of our varied and severe, approaching problems. It’s not just a poetic expression.

HAMAS in the Ukraine, part 6,104,293
In the below video, from 0:12, you can see a trench running through a residential neighborhood, very close to a large apartment (flats, for you Brits) block, and then shortly thereafter, a destroyed Ukrainian tank that had taken up a firing position (to hit at targets coming down the road) from inside a “loading dock” type area within a very large apartment complex, in the city of Severodonetsk in west Lugansk, which is now being taken by Russian and Lugansk forces.
Of course, when that tank pulled in (and perhaps even now), there were some people still in these buildings or (more likely) taking shelter in the basements or sub-levels.
What’s “funny” is that if the tank missed its target, it would hit the apartment building across the street.
I guess this is what they have in mind when they say “Glory to Ukraine!”
Obviously, no Ukrainian force can meet Russia (and expect to survive for long) in sustained, open combat, outside of a city. Even in the cities, it’s just a matter of time.
Also, as I noted in my previous post, this urban combat stuff will largely STOP once Russia and Donetsk/Lugansk advance to cities where the families of Ukrainian officers and soldiers have their homes. It’s one thing to tear up “disloyal” areas of the Donbass and Kharkov, it’s another to facilitate the killing of your own parents and siblings, or at least the destruction of the neighborhood where you grew up. As I’ve said, this isn’t quite Nazi Germany—these Aryans won’t de-house themselves.
Send more Javelins! LOL.
This isn’t happening
Just more daily carnage in Donetsk city, thanks to Ukrainian artillery or rockets/missiles, see below. This is a school. The kids are studying from home (or not studying at all), but there were some employees on site.
CAUTION: SOME DECEASED BODIES IN THE BELOW VIDEO. NOT PARTICULARLY “GRAPHIC”, BUT, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT, DON’T WATCH IT.
Separately, two pregnant women were killed by a Ukrainian rocket today in the Donetsk town of Stakhanov.
Here’s one of them, it looks like she was just out for a walk. You can see her handbag in a pool of her blood on the ground:
And here’s a remnant of the Uragan cluster submunitions-laden rocket that killed them:
None of this is mentioned on the website of Human Rights Watch (HRW), one of the “big two” (along with Amnesty International) human rights activist groups of global reach.
To be fair, HRW lost interest in the Ukraine war and has hardly covered it in the last few weeks. It now seems to be focused on crimes or discrimination against Ukrainian refugees in other countries. (You know, ACLU type stuff.)
Hey, whatever brings in the bucks, right? As a nonprofit, HRW relies on donations, primarily from the trendy, “Upper West Side” (of Manhattan) Democrat set. It must follow “conventional wisdom” and whatever is trending.
All in all, you can see the smartest zombies have moved on, and the rest will soon. Now that the Ukraine is toast, it’s stale. It’s stale toast!

Hamas have a problem in that the folks they are using as human shields are Palestinians like them.
But if you hate the folks who live in those apartments and have spent 8 years terrorising them anyway, it’s whole lot easier.
We have movement about the Rapes – Ukraine Fires Own Human Rights Chief For Perpetuating Russian Troop ‘Systematic Rape’ Stories . Show that to your friend that is waiting for evidence.
” 25 females as young as 14, held for weeks in a rape dungeon by Russian forces, eight of them got pregnant”.
that Ukrainian Ombudsman Lyudmila Denisova, who posted endless stories about raped babies, old people, etc., was fired yersteday, because she could not confirm any of the alleged crimes. there are no names, no statements from the eyewitnesses, no criminal cases. Absolutely unfounded accusations that were happily picked up by the Western media
I’ve tried taking about the situation in Ukraine with a few people in Poland and have given up. I thought to myself that the masses of people love their lies and prefer their illusions, like an alcoholic does. It is what it is, an uncomfortable truth. Somebody was lamenting to me about the Russians and I said that Poland shouldnt have been meddling in Ukraine during Maidan in the first place. A while back I couldnt seem to convince someone that the EU Commission makes the laws, and they are unelected, while the EU parliament has no statutory making power. In other words, the democracy is an illusion. This person couldnt accept this. This is the kind of human material that I’m surrounded with. I told my fiancee that if things start to get really bad in Europe we can always move to somewhere in Asia. Most Asians seem to still have a head on their shoulders.
There’s no cure for stupid, only a cure for ignorance. Look up the Dunning-Kruger Effect.
“The only medicine for stupidity, is reality” Absolutely untrue. There is NO cure for stupidity. In Dunning-Kruger’s study, “Unskilled and Unaware,” they say it nicer. They say ppl are to unskilled to measure how stupid they are, so they think they are smart. These Dunning-Kruger sufferers also, no matter how many times reality shows them they are wrong, NEVER adapt to their failed tactic. The embodiment of doing the same thing and expecting different results, like Ursula Von Derrrr Crazy.
There is no cure for stupidity, only ignorance. If someone is ignorant, you can teach them.
Have any .mil addresses signed up for your newsletter?
TDR doesn’t have a single .mil address who has subscribed. In today’s woke culture, doubt anyone would dare use their .mil address.
Has anyone ever told you that you look like Matt Damon?
Yes. More often, when I was younger. Strangers would walk up and tell me. It doesn’t happen much anymore. Partly because I am older and pudgier, and partly because no one cares about Damon anymore.
Yeepeee ! Send more Javelins ! 🙂 Great post as ever !
Jacob D, I love your writing style. You have the best timed “LOL’s” I’ve ever read. Thanks for the LOL. I guess that’s all one can do in this world that is more and more like a fever dream.
ombudsperson, Lyudmila Denisova, has been removed from her post over spreading ‘fakes’ about Russian forces
Ukrainian lawmakers voted on Tuesday to remove the nation’s human rights commissioner, Lyudmila Denisova, from her post. The official has been accused of failing to perform her duties and in particular of spreading unverified information about atrocities supposedly committed by Russian troops in Ukraine. Such actions only served to tarnish Ukraine’s image, MPs have argued.

As an expat Brit living in a remote corner of the Pacific Northwest, I am greatly saddened by the way my entire family has been taken in by the BBC/MSM propaganda machine. I don’t watch television and I’m far away from the maddening crowds. I get my information from people like Jacob who actually know what they are talking about. Of course my family thinks I’m a complete nutcase.
Please keep up the good work.
I’ve been commenting on that idiot Con Coglin’s Daily Telegraph (DT) reports from the word go – calling him neo-Con Coglin – and saying virtually the diametric opposite of what he is saying is the truth. All G7 MSM must be fed the same united propaganda. Decent Editors and Reporters must be crying in shame. MSM news today is a crime. Bill Gates gives the DT £3 million per annum to spout pro vaccine tripe. Mi6 and CIA must have the press by the gonads. A tragic state of affairs… and yet all the other commenters denounced my as a Kremlin shrill. Everyone is literally brainwashed and hypnotised, like Plato’s allegory of the cave, they can’t face the reality that their elites are evil.
Sputnik is also jeen the-rah-pee vakk-syn. It’s just that the delivery system is different, adenovirus DNA vs mRNA.
Thanks but, no. You don’t understand the term.
They don’t hijack your cell’s protein production system like the mRNA ones do but still load you up with spike protein, which in itself is cytotoxic…meantime what are the Chinese fighting? An ethnic specific version?
Whatever it is they definitely don’t want it! Waiting patiently for Jacob to unwrap it….
Hello! I got loaded up with spike protein each time I was sick with the KORONA. You get over it. What you don’t get over, at least not quickly (and this is proven by now) is being hijacked (by the PFYE-ZZER etc.) to produce a certain type of SPYKE ANTEE-BAW-DEE, and being unable to produce any other type of SPYKE ANTEE-BAW-DEE even as the VY-RUS quickly evolves/mutates.
You alluded to a connection between the Ukraine situation and the KORONA and I would agree completely and I would go one step further and even say the KORONA may have emerged because the Russians were about to do this two years ago and the west used the KORONA to stop it. I also remember just before the KORONA popped up there was some type of US government emergency where all ammunition and night vision equipment was spoken for by Government agencies. Probably all was sent to Ukraine. There are no coincidences.
May I know why do you spell certain words wrong but phonetically similar. This is your own site, so they cannot cancel you. What problems would it cause?
As to UK being among the top Zombiefied nations in the World, I have to agree. We are toast. To get to a level were we believe in human transformers and push this evil on children… We aren’t Christian nation anymore. We are a very sick and demented society.
Its not my own site.
Many of my friends and family members were critical thinkers prior to Cvid and the Ukraine war. Now they are zombies who support the empire. I never thought the propaganda machine would be so effective, and as toaccomplish this.
The propaganda in the UK is off the scale. I have not seen anything close since The Falklands War in the early 80’s, and of course that involved our entire forces. I am actually a Telegraph subscriber but have found I’ve been silenced in a strange way. I can see my comment posts, but nobody replies or likes them and this has been going on since i got in some fights during the Avostal “evacuation”. I was previously a busy poster and I have noticed many of my favorite posters have also disappeared.
Of course Coughlan is the most discredited journalist still “working” today. He is a relentless cheerleader for every half-baked neocon adventure, but in this war, he is the norm across all media.
Orwellian stuff. I shouldn’t be shocked by this but I am still surprised. They want everyone think there is no dissent. Scary stuff.
1 week ago… https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/new-cases-rape-torture-ukrainian-27049052
One week ago, Lyudmila Denisova, Ukraine’s human rights commissioner claims all sorts of depraved sexual violence by Russian forces (six-month-old girl raped with a spoon?!?) and the claim is dutifully reported… yes, they did write “claimed” in order to maintain plausible deniability against the charge that they’re just a war propaganda rag (not just picking on the Mirror here… this was splashed all over the place).
Today Ms. Denisova gets turfed by her own government for, amongst other things, making claims that haven’t been verified and are unsupported by evidence thereby harming Ukraine’s cause. The BS must run pretty deep that even Newsweek reports it (albeit very carefully). Credit them I suppose because I haven’t seen it reported anywhere else.
Here in Canada we have a similar situation. We have a Finance Minister of Ukrainian descent (Chrystia Freeland), poised to become the next Prime Minister, who’s grandfather has strong historical ties to the German SS as a publisher of propaganda in Ukraine during WWII. Most people in Canada think that’s Russian disinformation, but not the
Simon Wiesenthal Center. My British friends here are triggered by Putin, and have been raised to be Russiaphobic in the extreme. My family are not bearable to speak with on the subject. Canada has a sizeable Ukrainian population that was established after the war. It was easy to get into Canada if you were anti-communist, so guess where their political leanings lie.
Pfharris you make an excellent point, !0’s of thousands of Ukrainian Nasty’s made their way to Canada ,US and South Americas aided by the Vatican and the Red Cross.
“It’s hard for thee to kick against the pricks” As a Brit I was ashamed of the BBC interview with the Russian Ambassador to the U.K. It was ambush journalism at it’s worst from the institution that gave us Jimmy Saville. The sheer hypocrisy of calling into question Russia’s treatment of journalists while Julian Assange a journalist remains a political prisoner that they deem unworthy of mention. The reason? How about this, in our country the military including military intelligence swear an oath to their monarch before all else, Prince Philip the recently deceased husband of our current Queen was once asked about Russia, he replied ” of course I hate Russia they killed half of my family”. If you compare images of King George V to images of Tsar Nicholas II you will see the likeness of the cousins. They both share another cousin Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany. It appears as though the UK is Ukraine’s No. 1 ally but in truth an old grudge is the most likely explanation.
it is interesting how british russian and german royal families were all cousins and blood connected, buth nevertheless they enetered in the bloody conflict of WW1. that begs the question on whose behalf? who was the real puppet master?
The CRAZY is taking a toll on us all, and I can tell by your tone in today’s post that it is hitting you pretty hard right now. It can be anguishing to observe this epidemic of insanity from the sidelines. There is always an itch to do “something” about it, but what exactly? I guess spreading the truth is a start, but even that relies on the hope that education will lead to enlightenment and a restoration of sanity. I hope you succeed, but methinks the eventual solution will require more than words. In a sense, that is the lesson of Ukraine. Putin tried talking everyone into a peaceful solution for about two decades, and Cloud People would have none of it. Now reality is a bitch. Coming to a theater near you very soon.
One of my favourite pastimes is reading the headlines in western press regarding Ukraine, it’s endlessly entertaining. One of the best brain-scramblers so far has just been issued by the Times in the UK:”Azov Battalion drops neo-Nazis symbol exploited by Russian propagandists”. Not sure what the sub-editor that came up with that was taking but I definitely don’t want some.
“… another wave of the KORONA, and it will hit the VAKK-SYN-AY-TTED predominantly, and lead to tens of millions of deaths (across the PFYE-ZZER’ed countries) within a short time.”
A wave of Korona, and/or an avalanche of apparently unrelated diseases is baked into the cake. Pfizer’s docs named ~1,300 possible “adverse events” (CDC talk for “collateral damage”). More than a few are deadly.
The fact is that all the weird quasi-religious tropes that have been unleashed over the last few decades, from climate change, to critical race theory, to gender-bending (anti-social) socialism, to pandem-onium and finally the coup de grace vaxxes issue from the same Snake. All in anticipation of the Snake’s Great Reset and its dystopian visions of a 4th Industrial Revolution involving no/little industry, and a radically reduced population of AI managed, transhumanized Homo Sapiens 2.0.
Russia has explicitly stated that the snake is an evil it will not allow into its house, but the snake insisted on slithering ever closer with an air of imperial impunity. So, Vlad nailed it to his doorstep in Ukraine. Comes the moment, comes the man. Only Russia could conceivably do what needed doing. Only Russia could withstand the tsunami of economic/financial sanctions and turn them into a weapon. Only it has both the civilizational depth to sidestep the vitriol and the military power to intimidate the Snake’s war machine.
Edgar Cayce famously said: “From Russia comes again the hope of the world”. I have no real idea what he meant by that, but judging by the fact that the world is watching with (literally) bated breath, I’d say he nailed it too.
Stale, moldy GMO toast.
Thanks Dreizin! Keep up the good work.
Gell-Mann Amnesia ! I knew about it for decades, I just didn’t know that it had a name.
Here’s a golden oldie from a VAKK-SEENZ EGGS-PERT
I live in the UK and look forward to your posts since being directed here by Alexander Mercouris in mid march. They are fascinating and it’s made a refreshing change to get some sort of insight into this crises rather than the cut and paste drool spilling out of posh plumby faced ex-generals on Sky or BBC or the repellent evidence free journalists you’ve exposed in this post.
I’ve also found the U.S. economists Michael Hudsons angle on the motivations of this disaster interesting. He puts the primary target of the U.S. as Germany/EU in terms of price gouging them and further removing their sovereignty to pick more benificial economic relationships (such as Russia or China).
a lot of people think that this war is UK/US project to weaken russia and EU economically and make it more dependent on US. EU should not to be allowed to be an independent player on international scene. as sanctions will mostly hurt EU citizens through price rise, and make EU/german economy much less competitive. Beside US, china and india will profit too because they will now buy russian oil at discounted price. like you can see, we shoot our own foot and we are told to be happy about it by ursula & co.
I know someone fairly close who was watching the conflict unfolding early on where a maternity hospital was allegedly shelled by rooo-shens shown on the most honorable trustworthy ( cough) network news – no amount of alternative news eg-Like Patrick Lancaster actually showing uc- cranian atrocities will convince them. Another person in reference to kar- roma chided me by telling if I didn’t vak-scene and came down with this they were going to show up and LAUGH at me. Hopeless brainwashing
Excellent article again.Thank you.Sadly agree with your conclusion.Yes it is painful as a long suffering Brit married for many years to a lovely Muscovite to see every morning across the street a Ukranian flag draped over a neighbours garage door.My only consolation is that such zombies are more than likely triple injected! However most of the aware friends that I have made since the start of the plague are also fully aware of the actuality of the Ukraine situation which is some ground for hope.
The truth had never been easier to arrive at. Knowing the corrupt corporate media lie about everything the opposite of what they tell you is the truth. The problem is not knowing the truth it’s not WANTING to know the truth.
Jacob, the British will just say that the Russians dug that trench and fortified it, to fool you. (Sarcasm doesn’t work on the internet, so I think this is cack, just saying what they would say.)
HAMAS in the Ukraine, part 6,104,293
Funny you should mention that – I was thinking the same thing, the Ukrainians are to Slavis as the Palestinians are to Arabs: endlessly whining, prone to crazy extremism, stubborn, unrealistic. They use the same tactics in war, deliberately endangering civilians. It’s weird because the same people who support the Palestinians support the Russians.
it is not weird at all to me. people tend to support ones which they feel generally fight for just cause. and although russia is nuclear power “west” tried to humiliate them with the same double standards. quod licet jovi, non licet bovi.
No need to wait for another wave, it has been a disaster since day one:
Vakk-syn-ay-TTed in the UK: 44.96 million
Unn-vakk-syn-ay-TTed in the UK: 23.54 million
Deaths (total) for the period January 1st 2021 – March 31st 2022:
Publication date: 16 May 2022, source: “referencetable20220516accessible” excel spreadsheet at ons.gov.uk
I have no words for the UK at the moment, I fear if I start ranting… I’ll never stop. No symptoms of life here, a rent-seeking country obsessed with property, no longer roadworthy. I imagine the 70s smelled like this.
After a good few years of trying to turn things around from the inside, my wife and I are now quietly planning to leave in the next 18 months. She’s learning Russian, I’m learning Mandarin – looking at countries everywhere.
Ah and interestingly, my Mum is the only person I know (other than my wife) that never went along with the Putler narrative. She has paranoid schizophrenia. Make of that what you will.
Thank you Jacob!
I certainly appreciate the information and knowledge that you share in your videos. But I must say that your written analysis in your blog goes many steps further…info, humor, cynicism, etc. They touch upon some of your opinions of other issues, other than the current military operation, as well. While YT and Rumble may get more views, please don’t stop the blog. It’s the best of the best. Thank you.
French MSMs dont speak about “ground” situation, moving the narrative to the sanctions “wins or to come” of the EU, undermining consequences (real lies about inflation)… and for sure no more about Busha or other accusations. Spanish MSMs still with the narrative Ukrain is winning, and how the sanctions will weak Russia.
Any of them didn’t mention anything about Donetsk schools as they did during 8 years. It’s really great what you can do once the IQ dramatically decreased – it is not just about propaganda. Originally many politics had a great mathematics (Polytechnique, Minas, Engineers …) background, they have been replaced by “MBA” (mainly bought diplomas) “artists” focusing on very short term profits & for themselves – there is not any more a vision (mid term, and for sure no long term at all). I don’t say the learnings of MBA are bad, in EU foreign learnings / methods are not well understood, not adapted but perverted. It took 15-30 years to destroy the rationality, and here is where we are … and really don’t know where we are going to, i’m not very confident in the future …
“I believe there are no coincidences, and that the Ukraine situation and the KORONA are firmly linked (recall how one “replaced” the other without skipping a beat in February), and will together change our world completely.”
There are plenty of coincidences happening all the time. But the fact that these catastrophes are pilling up one on top of the other is very telling of the crisis we are living though. The great German philosopher Hegel once said: “Necessity expresses itself through accident”. All of these crises are just symptoms of a dying system. No, the pandemic was not a “Plandemic” as some conspiracy-thinking inclined people insist. But the havoc it caused was not caused by the virus either. It was caused by the inability of our socio-economic system to deal with it adequately. There is no grand world conspiracy, the world is not ending, the planet is not going to “burn”. All we are seeing are just the convulsion of a dying socio-economic system.
Ah..Hegel got to you..try Karl Popper’s the open society and it’s enemies and you will hesitate to quote Hegel again.
Agree with you – the U.K. is competing well right now for the prize of dumbest western country in a very crowded and hard fought race. It may be the only prize we can win right now.
A context to be aware of is that various D Notices are in place with the UK media with respect to Ukraine. These are a form of quasi voluntary censorship where the legacy media agree not to report certain stories. All in the interests of national security, old boy, of course. Being conservative (small c) corporate entities that depend heavily these days on taxpayer funded advertising they comply. This partly explains the sheer stupidity but they are self censoring without D Notices too. Of course, many people here then claim that we have a free press but Russia does not! The cognitive dissonance is out of this world.
If you glance at any British MoD press briefing then they are as delusional as the media’s briefings that just cut and paste them. But there again their political masters of Johnson, Truss and Wallace are leading the way in this. Very few people have taken the trouble to find out the facts and understand the underlying realities.
Combined with the vak-seen, eppy-demmik and climate change religion we are rapidly going the way of Ancient Rome.
Indeed it’s a close race. Of course, it’s difficult to measure but surely Canada is near the front of the pack. Exhibit A, our Deputy Prime Minister, Chystia Freeland, waving her grandfather’s black-and-red blood-and-soil flag (not understanding the flag’s connotation) and our Minister of Foreign Affairs, Melanie Jolie, yammering on about a war crimes tribunal before knowing any facts (I won’t mention our truly appalling Prime Minister, who is surely the shallowest, most ignorant and most vain leader in the West today). They preen and grandstand for the international media and WEF Young Global Leaders’ alumni and, since they’re Canadian, they do so while looking especially desperate given the irrelevance of Canada. And of course, it’s no accident that these two major government portfolios are held by women. We’re a gender inclusive nation don’t you know… merit be damned, 50-50 all the way (not sure where the transgenders factor in). In fairness though, outside of the odd exception (who generally can’t get anyone to notice them), the political class in this country has no pool of talent to draw on so merit versus gender is sort of irrelevant.
All that said, I have to concede that the insufferable duo of Liz Truss and Ben Wallace probably win it for the UK (again, I’ll ignore your PM because, like ours, he’s in a class of his own).
Right. Canada is pushing hard! UK might have a fight on its hands. LOL. Maybe Dreizinreport or The Duran might want to run an adjudication on which western country is most brainwashed! Tricky judging.
In terms of newspapers The Times in London is pushing hard for top prize in the disingenuous spin category through their reporting of the Azov guys latest rebrand minus the swastikas. They say that this now prevents Russian propaganda that claimed the guys were Nazis so it is a great thing. They also describe the swastika itself as a medieval German symbol that Nazis appropriated in WW2. So I guess it is all ok then. The rebrand fixes it.
Sad to think that the first military press correspondent known in modern history was WH Russell of The Times. He was renowned for honest reporting on the incompetence of the British Army in The Crimean War that effectively brought down the government. Now they are just a poodle of the state. Hardly The Thunderer.
I think Germany where I reside is even far more gone than the UK or Canada. You can’t beat Baerbock who is the FM of Germany or Habeck who is the Economy Minister, Scholz is absolutely clueless, he is the chancellor, in being dumb, moronic and buffoonish. They are the personification of incompetence and stupidity. I think the West is so decadent and degenerated its over. Maybe thats good, I think Russia and China just hope that the situation stays stable so nobody really dangerous comes to power in the West. Like Jacob said, its gonna end really really bad for the West, I also see people freezing, starving and an exponential growth in crimes.
> a “loading dock” type area
A small correction. These ‘arches’ are usually openings in a large appartement complex for access roads.
One of the most insidious aspects of the past few months, and something the MSM has been at the forefront of propagating, is that which I would call (for want of a better phrase – maybe someone can think of something more appropriate) “Stolen Empathy”. Akin to stolen valor, only the MSM utilises tugging at the heartstrings of the public by projecting an inverse of actual events (civilian casualties – who they were, and who killed them) to project a false narrative. Bucha is the standout, but there have been many other incidences.
An abhorrent practice, and disrespectful in the extreme to the memories of those who have died.
The MSM have plumbed new depths in moral and ethical bankruptcy.
“What about all the zombies who don’t get it yet? (First and foremost, citizens of the United Kingdom, who are the deadest, dumbest zombies in all of Christendom, and my sympathy goes out to all freethinking Brits reading this blog, I feel your pain.)”
Thank you for your plain-speaking and your sympathy. There is a lot of truth in what you say. However, it’s possible that you are underestimating the underlying cynicism of many Brits.
As someone dealing with the public – mostly commoners, with a small sprinkling of the wealthy and noble – on a daily basis it is painfully true that, if the Russia matter springs up, the complete consensus is of rejection and loathing, exactly following the official party line. Ditto for those that profess to be conscientious Christians; this is specially annoying, embarrassing, contradictory and hopeless – those that profess the faith of Christ should care about truth and justice above official lies and national pride.
That is one’s experience in the UK.
> This is how far GONE most people are in the “white” countries.
It’s #peakshitlib. These people are more afraid of the UN-VAKK-SYN-AY-TED in the supermarket or dissenting opinions on twitter than they are of antagonizing a man with several thousand nuclear warheads. The use of which will likely end with the near extinction of white people!
Then again maybe that’s the goal…
The sad thing is there can be no “rude awakening” for human farm animals. They obey orders to take IN-JECK-SHUNS and FACE-DIE-PERS. You need to have courage to take the red pill. Do you see any courage hiding behind a FACE-DIE-PER?
Con Coughlin (montage above) has been the Daily Telegraph’s defence journalist/editor for over for 40 years, going back to when it was my daily paper of choice, and has probably picked up the “Mockingbird Overseas Journalist Award” annually since joining.
Trust me, the level of neocon tripe he has authored is second to none – he makes Bagdad Bob look a bastion of virtuous integrity.
Sadly, as a Briton, I have to agree with you about the comatose state of a lot of my compatriots, Mr. Dreizen.
I do feel, however, that a lot of the perception that “we” are all behind this madness is again a product of propaganda.
I’m only a N of 1 of course, but I do encounter close to 50% of people in my personal life who are more than sceptical and don’t want the UK to be involved at all, even if they believe some of the fantasies.
I agree. My experience is that face to face in private many people are sceptical. There is a tradition. This has just been published.
Browned Off and Bloody-Minded: The British Soldier Goes to War 1939-1945
You have a firm grip on reality unlike most people exposed to our western propaganda machine. I do not think that Ukraine ever was equipped to defeat the russian military. It does cannot not neutralize the electronic countermeasures for reconnaissance and it does not have the ability to intercept their advanced missiles. Thus I conclude that it was only meant to delay their advance while relying on their success in the economic war. What do you think?
I’m not at all sure about urban-warfare only intended to be fought in pro-Russian cities/towns. If you remember, at the start of the war the Ukrainian defense should have been taken in major cities against Russian forces, particularly in Kiev. Citizens were told to throw “molotovs” on the Russian tanks from high-rise buildings. Beer bottles (often full with beer) were distributed freely to be made (supposedly) into “molotovs”, as well as assault rifles. So the idea was to make the anti-Russian capital into Kabul of some sort.
thx u for being a breath of fresh air and for that i shall a willing subscriber of yours, the news and even dissident media has generally fallen short on their reporting of current and even past events surrounding Ukraine, i can only hope time will change that. thx again.
Your UK headlines by Con Coughlin are indeed the pick of the bunch. His articles are invariably totally stupid but we have to assume that the Daily Tlelgraph have worked out that at least some readers like them so they pay him. The UK is widely brain washed and fact free. I occasionally debate on websites. It is a depressing experience. I have stopped talking to my family about it. Although from time to time I ask them about the Ruble exchange rate and they look at me like puzzled sheep.
Again, thanks for your coverage. Do you think any thoughts/intuition if after taking the whole Donbas, Russia will still have to deal with any of big cities like Kharkiv or Kyiv?
Thanks in advace
Jacob, since you clearly know much more about the military than I do, maybe you can answer this question I have. The Russian Air Force seems very underutilized during this war. For example, the Izyum area where things seem grind to a stalemate, the Russian attack aircrafts or helicopters could surely break this stalemate. Similarly, for all those other areas where there are stalemates. Why we don’t see Russian air power used more to break the stalemate in many of these areas?
I’ve had the same thought myself, it’s almost like Russia is fighting with one hand tied behind its back. The only thing I can think of is that Putin is playing the long game, he knows he will have to fight NATO eventually and is holding back his main armament to deal with them.
The Russians are being very careful to keep civilian deaths as low as possible. Air power is extremely destructive, if the Russians went full on you would not be seeing shot up buildings, you would be seeing piles of rubble. The price for this humanity is higher Russian casualties. I served as an air strike controller, so you can take this post for fact.
The cannons that the Russians currently use are quite destructive as well. I don’t see the difference between that and bombs from aircraft.
No Russian artillery is capable of firing 500 kg shells,while for air-force that is minimum bomb to get those hardened shelters destroyed. Their artillery fires 50-110 kg shells max.
Thanks for the report Jacob. Don’t let the name fool you. HRW is just another NGO from Uncle Sam. Its aims has got nothing to do with its name. It is an instrument of power for the empire just as the white helmets in Syria were. I am sure if you look through its history and look at where there were atrocities committed by the U.S. or our allies, there would not be a pip from this or other similar organizations.
Yes, since you mention, I could find nothing (at least nothing current and visible) on their website regarding any discrimination or rights violations within the borders of the USA, or Canada or any west European country. They can’t find anything at all? I’d be shocked if they don’t receive U.S. Government funding.
I think it goes beyond that. For example, I would not be surprised at all if during W’s presidency, HRW pipe down about Pakistan since we need them to get into Afghanistan, or that HRW goes relatively quiet about India now that we want to form this alliance to contain China. I would not be surprised if we kept mum about the Philippines during Marco’s reign right up until he was overturned, but now complaining louder about them since they strayed away from us in their foreign policy. NGO’s are part of the U.S. government and they serve our foreign policy.
I’ve worked in “NGO world” and I can tell you that most of their funding comes from USG and other governmental entities. (Please, no names or else Homeland Security will cart me off, OK?)
This money is on their tax forms, but Mr. and Mrs. America who call & give $100 in response to a plea for funds on TV won’t know that.
BTW, funny you should mention the rape camps:
The wheels are coming off. Time for a new coat of paint!
Great work Jacob. One question. Hasn’t the “VAKK-SEEN” been heavily pushed in Russia? There have been some disturbing reports of a tracking technology being used linked to a central data base. I agree with your comments about the real purpose of the VAKK-SEEN but It’s odd that this would be allowed in Russia. Any thoughts?
There is an interesting case in Nigeria now of AI working with the Nigerian Government to witch hunt Government opponents. https://westafricaweekly.substack.com/p/compromised-by-the-secret-police?utm_source=twitter&s=r

FYI the posts by the uneducated editor didn’t show up in the email. The triumph will only be a surprise to those that rely on MSM, Elenskyy, and Western governments for their ‘news’.
I don’t have selective amnesia. I have considered corp agitprop networks suspect in all areas. I have short interactions with normies and they still can’t see the constant barrage of lies from one narrative to the next. its insanity so deep I just let it go
Hate the carnage, but love seeing the Z’s, just like the civilians in the videos.
Stale day old toast. Moldy even. That’s why the sudden disinterest and pivot towards other hot-button topics.
But to keep you interested, how does another $700m depletion of our inventory sound??
High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems and ammunition;
Five counter-artillery radars;
Two air surveillance radars;
1,000 Javelins and 50 Command Launch Units;
6,000 anti-armor weapons;
15,000 155mm artillery rounds;
Four Mi-17 helicopters;
15 tactical vehicles;
Spare parts and equipment.
Wonder if even 10% of this gets to the Donbass?
Great commentary that absolutely nails what is going on … thanks again Jacob! I hear many (vackxed) people say that the world has gone mad and things are not right, yet their eyes glaze over if you mention turning off the tv and doing some proper research to get the truth. Hard to believe we shared the same womb, but my triple stabbed twin brother is convinced that Ukraine will soon announce victory and Putin is to soon face a war crime tribunal …. sigh!
Con Coughlin has never been right about anything, ever. The DT used to be a good newspaper and then they removed all their good commentators like Ed West and brought in PC automatons. We are reaching the point where Alex Jones is more reliable than the MSM. Any time spent reading Con Coughlin is time wasted. The UK used to have a free and vibrant media. Those days are over.
If you accept that main purpose of the MSM is to deceive citizens and conceal the truth, it follows that everything they say or write will be untrue. There would be no point in their saying anything true, as that would be counterproductive.
your comment made me smile because it’s exactly what I would have said! Thanks
Yep, UK is a cesspit of propaganda. Thankfully I’m based in SE Asia. I’ve tried to engage friends/family in UK in discussion/debate about Ukraine but they just seem hysterical about ‘evil russia’ and parrot whatever they’ve seen on facebook/twitter/instagram. Bit embarrassing really.
engage them on thethaiger.com forum. Oh just kidding, your post would be flagged at the get go, first a time out then a ban for telling the truth. For those who don’t know its a expat forum westerners use along with asean.com. Both will ban for saying anything along the lines of Russia holds all the cards. Amazing times we live in. I just read many getting there pants bunched up when one SEA country decided to increase trade with Russia, which is very smart. All those westerners got online and started bashing there host country. lol
Agreed! In particular, the UK Armed Forces media organisation, The British Forces Broadcasting Service (BFBS), lays on the propaganda really thick. Aside from appearing to be a pro-MIC mouthpiece, their outlet, known as ‘Forces’, with their website and youtube channel, has posted plenty of pro-Ukraine/anti-Russian stuff. They did a short documentary on Azov, which I chose not to watch. But judging by the comments on that vid, it appears to be an attempt at softening Azov’s image of being Neo-Nazis. The stuff that comes out of ‘Forces’ is clearly meant for suckers, not thinkers!
I’m in the UK, I just can’t believe the amount of friends and family who actually believe the bs pushed out by the likes of the bbc, absolutely shocking !! What ever happened to critical thinking,
Yes, I’m British and anyone here who only watches mainstream media has been completely brainwashed on this from before the beginning. The arrogance and blind conceited hubris are breathtaking, embarrassing and sickening.
