This is 80% about the Ukraine war…..
My only 2024 election forecast
Manny likes to remind me…..
…..that, based on sad experience…..
My predictive skills…..
…..don’t much extend to elections.
This is because…..
U.S. elections DO NOT ride…..
…..on any OBJECTIVE factors…..
But rather, on which way…..
…..the women are blowing…..
…..on any given day.
Throw FRAUD in…..
…..on top of that…..
…..and predicting a close race….
…..becomes a fools game.
I’ll keep this broad enough.
At this point…..
It SHOULD be obvious…..
…..to ANY observer…..
…..of U.S. politics…..
…..that Trump AND Desantis…..
…..are EQUALLY radioactive…..
…..to “RINO” leadership in the U.S. Senate…..
…..and to the “traditional” network…..
…..of mega-rich GOP donors.
And, to “corporations” in general.
(All these players will now support, for some time at least, overtly or covertly, Senator Tim Scott. All other candidates are irrelevant. Even if you think Scott is a joke, it’s a three-way race.)
Of course, today…..
Republican voters, activists, officials…..
…..fret about finding…..
…..the “most electable” candidate.
“Someone who can win.”
That’s all bullshit.
The candidate doesn’t matter.
I don’t think ANY Republican…..
…..is going to win…..
…..(nor do I care)…..
…..UNLESS the bottom…..
…..straight-up falls out…..
…..before the election.
In other words…..
…..will steal it again…..
…..UNLESS they have…..
…..a SEVERE crisis of confidence…..
…..and get a strong whiff…..
…..of the fear of GOD.
IF that happens…..
ANY Republican will win.
It doesn’t matter who.
But, at that point…..
…..we’d have bigger problems…..
…..than who’s in charge…..
…..of a useless Federal Government.
The other half of the story
Last I checked…..
Uncle Sam was STILL denying…..
…..that the three Humvees…..
…..and two MaxxPro MRAP’s…..
…..(among other, non-U.S. made junk)…..
…..left behind by…..
…..in a cross-border raid…..
…..are, in fact…..
……….and two MaxxPro MRAP’s.
If the party line has changed…..
Sorry, I just can’t keep up…..
…..with the bullshit.
Everyone who WANTS to know…..
…..about the Humvees and MRAP’s.
I focus more on…..
WHO THESE **PEOPLE** ARE.
(In the below audio file, I joke about the names of these “groups.” Everything else, is serious. At least one of the two “groups” involved in the raid, the “Russian Volunteer Corps” (RVC), is OFFICIALLY part of Military Unit A3449, which is the Ukrainian military intelligence directorate’s home for all “foreign” units, including the International Legion and the Kastus Kalinowski “Regiment” of expats from Belarus. That is to say, paperwork issued by or on behalf of the “Russian Volunteer Corps”, LITERALLY has “Military Unit A3449” WRITTEN ON IT. LOL. Don’t tell the MSM!)
(Audio file duration: 11:29)
The world’s greatest pro wrestling promoter
I’m finally sounding off…..
…..about Prigozhyn and Wagner:
(Audio file duration: 9:38)
What do you think?
After two-plus weeks…..
…..of no “verifiably current” public appearances…..
The Ukraine’s top general…..
…..has allegedly shown himself…..
…..speaking for all of NINE SECONDS…..
…..(just random pap about hello everyone, and onward to victory)…..
…..looking a little tired…..
…..wearing a “polypro“, semi-cold-weather pullover…..
…..(with Ukraine daytime temperatures as high as 80 degrees Fahrenheit)…..
…..(and, he was filmed in a T-shirt even LAST month)…..
…..in some low-budget office…..
…..or amateur studio…..
…..(With no mike, awful sound quality. They couldn’t drop him into some top-level meeting?)…..
…..alongside some minor host…..
…..who has a “Right Sector“…..
…..(the “black sun” folks)…..
…..flag on his wall.
(UPDATE: Someone just pointed out, if you freeze and copy and vastly expand the view of his palm, when he says hi everyone… it does NOT seem human.)
Do you think this is real?
Or a “deepfake“?
If it’s real…..
Is the man still messed up?
Please, sound off in the comments.
I’d love to hear…..
…..your technical or medical expertise.
(To be clear, the host says that it’s the 25th of May.)
This actually matters…..
…..because if Zaluzhny…..
…..The Greatest Military Genius Of All Time…..
…..can’t come back to work…..
…..by rights, unless someone intervenes…..
…..his job gets taken by…..
…..who “lost Bock-moot“…..
…..in his “breaking the Russian flanks around Bock-moot” operation…..
…..that was preposterously hyped…..
…..by the Amazon Post…..
…..a few days ago.
(Sorry for the “vertical” pic.)
As a reminder…..
Please give me money for the the unique infotainment you receive from this weblog.
Again, I must ask my Twitter followers to go and “like” all my recent stuff, if you haven’t already. I need EVERY tweet/post at 200-plus likes, thank you!
In the comments, last time…..
…..”Confessions of an Economic Hitman.”
I understand this book…..
…..is very popular…..
Sorry to rain on their parades…..
The book is an OBVIOUS FRAUD.
The author claims…..
…..to have worked…..
…..his “economic hitman” agenda…..
…..for the U.S. NSA…..
…..which, in fact…..
…..does SIGNALS INTELLIGENCE and CRYPTOLOGY.
(Intercepting, and if needed, decoding or translating electronic communications; likewise presumably ENcoding U.S. communications.)
The funny thing is…..
At the time…..
…..that he first published (2004)…..
Almost no one knew…..
…..about the NSA…..
…..or what it does.
…..why he picked the NSA!
Thanks to Snowden and the Internet…..
ANYONE can see…..
…..this author is a FRAUD.
But, you know…..
A sucker is born every minute.
Now they’re buying…..
…..his 3rd edition…..
…..with 12 new chapters, LOL.
Instead of buying that crap…..
Uncle Dreizin Wants YOU!
If you haven’t already, please sign up to my damn MAILING LIST! All this means, is that you’ll get my blog posts, in your email. I DO NOT mass-send anything but that. Please enter your email address, in the box below.
I really appreciate good comments. Many people come back here, in-between posts, just to read the comments. If you help me entertain them, you’re my hero. A few rules: This is not a chat board. Your comment must primarily, largely involve and directly touch upon something that, or someone whom, I wrote about in the post you’re commenting on. Life reminiscences (if relevant), relating your relevant personal experiences, your job, your commie college girlfriend, your idiot family members, your Ukrainian coworker, etc., if relevant, are all HIGHLY encouraged. The most interesting content here… is YOU. The only exceptions to the on-topic requirement, are if you’re calling attention to a technical problem with the site, or briefly stating how much you love the content or this Comments Policy. Don’t try to “legitimize” an off-topic comment by throwing in some little pre-thought or afterthought about what I wrote. NO DISCUSSIONS THAT STRAY FROM MY TOPICS. My topics are the only common denominator here, and while it may amuse you, most readers have no interest in your thoughts on the Punic wars, or on some guy named Serge, or on how much you generally / generically don’t like the Ukraine and Zelensky; it’s your way to kill your own time, but it adds no value for others. Which means, if you’re responding to someone else’s comment, your response must still relate directly to one of my topics. Doesn’t matter how much you generously donated, these rules apply equally to everyone. 350 word limit, no exceptions, 351 words won’t be published, sorry. No rambling. If you’re not sure what “rambling” is, ask yourself, “Are others likely to understand and appreciate or enjoy my comment, or am I merely jerking off“? Nazis, commies, worshipful groupies of Mercouris/Johnson/etc., Jew baiters/haters, FBI agents-provocateurs, guys who forgot to take their Ritalin, passive-aggressive needling of the sysop or of other commenters, random questions that have no bearing on what I wrote (to include requests for my view on some commentator I’ve never heard of), no-punctuation writing by the smartphone generation, silly “Nadsat” lingo picked up from “The Saker” website, use of the BS term “SMO“, and autistic bitching about the satanic USA and its evil pedo pervert elites and how they must be killed (or other bile in that vein), will not be tolerated. If you’ve got issues, this is not your “let it go” zone. Don’t write anything here, that your therapist wouldn’t approve of.
The Grayzone is definitely not some pro-Ukrainian channel. Unless there’s a different Grayzone you’re referring to.
Hope you are fine. Loved the Monty Python reference. Upon checking the videos a couple of times (I am probably the worst in identifying deep fakes) I saw two moments that caught my attention:
– the whole hand moving doesn’t reflect in his Mac (I am assuming that Is a Mac) not a Shadow no reflection of his face, I dont l know if it is an angle thing or what. Screen seems to be big enough to capture those things. What do you think?
– 0:33 the line of the hand Is not continuos, I am not a hand reader but looks like Zig zagging.
I guess I am getting a Little conspiranoic.
Thanks for the blog
Love the title of this mlog A total under rated Phil Collins song. But aren’t they all.
Side point, every time there is a major loss in Ukraine, suddenly the US press goes slightly negative on Biden or Congress shows a new SAR for Hunter but then Biden agrees to F16s. Etc.
Bak-moot was bad, not only did the “press turn on Biden” but oZuhlensky left town
You state that: “Trump AND Desantis…are EQUALLY radioactive…to “RINO” leadership in the U.S. Senate”. But many sources that I find highly reliable (besides you) contend that DeSantis is a deep state guy himself, and is being used as controlled opposition. His entire history prior to becoming Florida governor seems to confirm this. And, when you look closely at what he’s done in Florida, very little is actually what it’s presented to be. At least, that’s what I’ve come to believe. You often know things that others don’t. Can you tell me anything more about this situation?
You’d have to well define “deep state” before you accuse Desantis of being it. Otherwise, sorry, all I can say is, LOLOLOL.
Anyone who is a product of the USA political system, reaches Gov or Senator level and accepts donor money is certainly corrupt. The question then is the flavor and intensity of the corruption, and whether they cross over to an outright grotesque level of villainy.
Great website by the way. Using different font sizes and styles works. And your short voice recordings are tops. Keep things brief and to the point. Too many long dreary podcasts that start out good but then lose the listener because they are too long. I’m limited financially but am spreading the word among friends about your site. Nice job.
I second that. I’ve been following Dreizin for about a year now. It’s my go-to site for geopolitical commentary and analysis of US politics (yes… I’ve given money and will do so again regularly). I do worry sometimes that because I agree with much of his analysis there may be some confirmation bias at play but trying to be as objective and critical as I can, I do believe most of the content and analysis withstands scrutiny and would be great even in run-on paragraph style with black font on plain white background. That said, the unique style and presentation make it a much more entertaining read. I confess that I was a little uneasy about the audio format at first only because I’d grown so fond of the written style but I must say that the audio has been a nice addition… short and succinct and nicely placed in the body of the post.
John Perkins (Confessions of an Economic Hitman) didn’t claim he worked for the NSA. He said interviewed for a job with the agency and was offered one but did not take it and joined the Peace Corps instead. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2006/jan/28/usa.politics
Wake yourself up, and read again carefully. I did not write that he claimed to work for the NSA directly, as an NSA employee. He claims to have worked with or on behalf of the NSA, to further its agendas. Instead of throwing some weblink at me, take a look at the damn book.
I was going to read the book but then I read your comment and decided to check into it and found that Perkins never actually worked directly for the NSA. You confirm that but say he says he worked with NSA, but then say that must be a misrepresentation because NSA just does signals intelligence and cryptography. But that not true. NSA has always been active in collecting economic intelligence (it bugged the IMF and World Bank) and advancing US economic and competitive business goals, not to mention foreign policy goals. Not hard to see that Perkins and others like him would be working with NSA. America as Economic Spy: NSA’s Mission Is Self-Aggrandizement, Not Fighting Terrorism | HuffPost Latest News P.S. I like your stuff (and have even sent you a little $$) and your “take no prisoners” persona is refreshing. So don’t take this personally. Just want you to know I’m not asleep.
Sure, the NSA has bugged a lot of people, even some economists. The key word here is BUGGED. Then, they turn the intercepted communucations over to the CIA or others.
What Perkins describes in his book, is NOT what the NSA does. The NSA does not conspire to create banking crises to bring down governments, etc. Even the CIA barely does that kind of stuff.
To the extent that it happens, it’s almost all done OUT IN THE OPEN, through economic sanctions or IMF pressure.
People watch too many movies, and they want to think the movies are real.
The movies are not real.
Of course, you’re free to believe whatever you already believed, before you came here.
John Perkins wasn’t lying about what’s done, though he may have been playing with his own truth. I would instead recommend Silent Coup by Matt Kennard and Claire Provost or this segment as a summary https://youtu.be/vDsp2apG5zQ
I’d like to hear more about your thoughts on Perkins (“Confessions…”). I get your point about him saying he worked for the NSA. Are there other details that stand out to you that “prove” that he is a “fraud”?
Are you questioning the overall notion that our country employs “economic hit men” tactics? Or are you simply questioning whether he particularly can be trusted with any of the details? As if his book was just a “limited hangout”.
Maybe Zaluzhny has had a breakdown of some sort. He certainly wasn’t his usual loquacious self…He disappears for two weeks amidst rumours and then turns up with an embarrassed smile and a little wave…
I’m trying to get a closer look at the unit patches / regimental insignia worn by the “Belgorod Raiders”. On the patch of Alexi “ZZ Top” Levkin I’m possibly seeing a white on blue sword/shield device. Maybe with the forked “Y” elk protection rune. What do you think ?
I know one particular patch doesn’t mean anything in particular and anyone can fake anything, but he did want it seen in the photo and there are “laws” of war about the use of flags and uniforms.
Flags, logos heraldry etc. does have a powerful effect on the human psyche. Without them you are just considered a spy or criminal.
Heck, even straight-up Mafioso gangsters cliques like to call themselves “The Fraternal Brotherhood of Honorable Men” or some such nonsense.
Very few men are willing to go full “Captain Morgan” hoist the Skull and Cross ones and just straight up admit to the world they are fighting, killing and dying for the Gold, the Whiskey and the Poontang
Hi. It’s more obvious than you think, they are just appropriating from the losers (the “Whites” vs “Reds”) of the Russian civil war. Google “Ларионов, Виктор Александрович” (the first result should be RU Wikipedia) and scroll down, you can see where they got their patch from.
Thanks for that, after looking into it I can definitely see it.
Ларионов, Виктор Александрович «Белая идея»
Viktor Alexandrovich Larinov and “The White Idea” (ideology ?).
FWIW, it seems that the puppet masters here are trying to run strategy 14 of the Book of 36 stratagems, namely
There wasn’t much of a “military operation” with this ukrainian-russian freedom fighter incursion into Byelgorod Oblast, right ? Rather shooting and terrorizing some Russian villagers & make way back as fast as they can, if possible. In any case, West German media (fe ZDF), ofc expressed appreciation & glee about this successful assault (German: “Anschlag”), distraction to Bokh Muth + embarassment for Puhtin. At the sime time they cast doubt on russian footage showing evacuation of people by busses – common tactics. Podolyak,, they said, looked at the event as quasi “non-participant” with interest. Allegedly these Rrussian freedom fighter nutcases are responsible for train derailments and other such actions in Russia, ’cause in Russia there is no freedom, censorship and so on. Full approval for that, too, on German Side ! (suppose, also for an eventual “distraction action” involving Russian NPPs, blasting dams, apartment buildings, or sth like that).
This ridiculous invasion of Belgorod reminds me of the Bay of Pigs 1961. The first time, Dulles knew that going into Cuba with such a small force had no chance, but was counting on JFK to land the marines and bail out the invaders, which he did not do leaving JFK feeling betrayed. This time around, whoever was calling the shots, CIA, Zelensky, Ukrainian military or intelligence…whoever it was…knew it had no chance, and just needed a diversion to distract from the loss of Artemovsk. Having Zaluzhny say hello to his fellow citizens, putting in little to no effort, was lame. Care about your people? Not. Hey Zaluzhny dude, how’s it going? Care to tell us what the fuck happened? No? Whatever. Which also suggests that the whole thing could be a fake and they just had to put something out there. And look at the setting. Where’s the portrait of Bandera? Did you see the story about Zelensky giving Zaluzhney’s coordinates out to the Russians to get him assassinated and then avoiding coming back to Kiev too soon afterwards? Paranoid Skullduggery? Are the top Ukies planning to bail soon?
With regard to that video with Zaluzhny.
There is a rather large TV right behind the first guy, it has (albeit blurry) reflections of everything in the room except Zaluzhny.
Zaluzhny’s eyes were blue like a month ago (I’m talking about the pics posted by Alyona, where Zaluzhny holds a medal / a coin) but now are light brown.
I tried to slow down and speed up the video, then played few segments backwards/forwards, Zaluzhny has something wrong with his eyes, he blinks with one eye and then with another one, it’s weird. And his facial expressions look like a mask. Either he was told to wiggle his eye brows, his scalp and such by the PR team or something isn’t right. Dunno really.
I have to take my words about the reflections back, Zaluzhny is there. For some reason he appears to be very close to the monitor than to the back of his chair.
The eyes changing color and the rest of it are a side effect of the zombie plague they used to reanimate him
Whether Zaluzhny got blowed up by a Russian missile or not, his conspicuous absence and this brief ‘proof of life’ video indicates SOMETHING went down with him. Maybe he tried a failed coup, and has been under house arrest – who knows? It may be awhile, but eventually info on what happened will creep out. It always does.
The Zaluzhny video isn’t obviously cut to splice in old footage because there’s a frame or two where the host and Zaluzhny are in the same frame as the camera pans left. However it is probably feasible (easy even) to use a deepfake during the pan left or right to hide splicing in a video clip of Zaluzhny taken before he was allegedly wounded. The host and Zaluzhny seem to sit absolutely still during the part of the pan left where they share the same frames and this is where a lightly applied deepfake would be hardest to detect. If it’s fake the whole thing will unravel if the preexisting clip of Zaluzhny is found on social media with a date/time stamp proving it was filmed prior to the incident.
Regarding Zaluhny: As a lady who has spent 30 years teaching nurses before retiring. I can only point out that there are no marks on either the Anterior or Median Cubital Fossa. This would be highly unusual for someone who has been seriously injured. This is where any drips are usually applied. One is given a good view and I couldn’t see any marks on wrists or hands either. but then perhaps it is really good makeup and the gentleman is slightly obese.
Sort of tangentially related but how do you suppose it is that soccer moms, the most odious demographic in American society, have become one of the most decisive voting blocs in federal elections? Surely this wasn’t always the case.
Good question. It’s clearly on-topic for this post, not tangential at all. I don’t know how long this has been the case, but it’s been very well understood only since 1996, when the term “soccer moms” was coined.
The term soccer mom is relatively new but the basic archetype of politically active female busybody goes back at least to the temperance movement from over a century ago which culminated in Prohibition.
still, how are they that influential, beyond their ability to vote? Do they influence men in their families who are indecisive/indifferent towards politics?
Interestingly one of the main arguments against the voting right for women was that they would vote the same way their husbands would vote and thus the upper classes were afraid of the doubling of the pool of poor voters. The assumption turned out to be true in the beginning. Women did indeed vote following their husbands. The first noticeable exception was the german austrian painter who got significantly more female votes than male. Unfortunately i dont have the data at hand but there are papers who followed the opening sex gap in voting behaviour.
Regarding explanation for absurd casualty estimates and others…
Equally likely, Gomorrah’s, CIA/Intelligence
analysts specializing in Russia were
replaced with nonbinary gender transition
and drag queen story hour specialists,
some with Common Core applied
Diversity mathematics degrees.
I’m not expert at AI produced images, but even normal video compression can produce strange artifacts. I tend to believe the video is authentic unless an expert opinion can show otherwise.
so Zaluzhny is alive. But he looks a little different. Lost weight. And as you say, he’s all rugged up even though the host is in a t-shirt. Seems they took him out of hospital for a 9 second, “I’m alive” video. See, don’t listen to Russian propaganda… Any other video of him in the past is him in the field commanding. Not anymore.
I realise that in a banana republic like the USA the appearance of being a democracy is even more important than actually BEING a democracy. So holding elections, even though everyone contesting them is provably corrupt or demonstrably incompetent – or both – is essential to keep the grift going until the punters finally wake up to the scam and burn the whole rotten edifice to the ground.
In that spirit I’m going to suggest that despite all the flag-waving and announcements by various hacks and losers that they’ll be running for president, there isn’t going to be an election in 2024. Or, that if by some miracle an election can be held, the result will be so contested that no one is going to accept the result. My money is on option one.
I’m not going to ask for a show of hands, but I’d ask those who consider these things to look really seriously in the dark recesses of their minds and ask themselves if in some corner there is a suspicion that I’m right. Seeing as I don’t live in the US I can sit back and enjoy the show, but for some this is going to be a very unhappy time. So buckle up folks, make a note in your calendar, and if I’m wrong you can get back to me here in the comments section some time in November next year.
Oh, and I agree with Uncle Dreizin, that Prigozhin bloke is so full of shit his eyes are turning brown. He’s a carnival hustler who is a front for the people who are really running the show and making a killing by operating a “private military company” which gets paid in cash for its services, unlike the conventional military. Think about that for just a moment.
Just want to say I love your audio intros, so here’s a “heyyyyy” right back at you Jacob.
It is rather bizarre that Zaluzhny has been doing near monthly interviews with the Western press. To prove he is alive and well though, they released a 30 second clip, with a total of nine seconds featuring him waiving? Maybe he is fine. I honestly have no idea, but it was a very weak way to prove it, to say the least.
I see nothing suspicious with Zaluzhny’s hand, as he raises it.
People have a tendency too see deep fakes or the good old green screen everywhere, after they’ve just recently read about the technology.
Of course it might be used, and will most likely occur more often as the tech improves, but people see it everywhere, just because it is possible.
I do have experience with the tech, and was in the triple-A game industry for 15 years.
Did you zoom in, about 8X?
Yeeeeaaaah…”grainy photos” ROFLMAO! Thanks for the clarification, I thought ZZ Topp-beardy-guy was the Pro Wrestling promoter…not much resemblance to Bobby-the-Brain Heenan. Keep up the good work, Jake.
Hi Jacob, hope you are well. I took a screenshot of the freeze frame with his open palm shown and am reasonably certain that the strange somewhat lumpy shape at the base of his thumb is a processing artifact. It’s a deep fake. Guy is probably with Bandera now. Lol.
Thanks. It’s not just the base of the thumb. The entire bottom half of the palm is unnaturally lumpy and smooth, no lines at all. The top half has two parrallel sideways creases that are unaturally broad and deep.
On Zaluzhny. The V sign done in other pics by Zy, are done the other way around. How he drops the arm so heavily on the desk is suspicious. The scene is quite surreal, I agree.
The eyebrows are moving in a strange way, could be some glitches when the fake moves from one expression to the other. But can’t confirm.
Look the video, try to emulate his movements, you’ll see something is odd.
If it is a fake, it’s very well done. I’ve done many. I can’t do better.
The eyebrows are 100% not right. It seems to me that nodding / tilting the head somehow affects the eyebrows. Could be wrong though.
The easiest way to prove that he is alive and doing well is to show him around other people having a chat / a QA. I mean how hard can it be? Why post old pictures of him? Why come up with the stories about attending a wedding? Either a psyop or he’s ass is waxed.
They have all the interest in keeping him alive or leaving the suspect to us.
If he is dead why bother.
If he is alive, same thing… they will pop him out making fun of us all
Jacob, I believe you are right about Prigohzin. His statements seemed too crazy to believe, but the experts on the right were convinced the stories were true. A lot of the commentators you affectionately call, ‘Retards,’ I’m losing faith in them. They are almost un-watchable to me now. Your numbers make more sense. It’s very hard to cut through so much BS. Keep going!
Thanks. Follow me, don’t follow retards.
I don’t know about other alt-commentators, but at least this time the guys from the Duran didn’t seem to believe what Prigozhin said. I don’t follow Mercouris because I won’t live 500 years, but on their common channel, they dismissed his complaints about the lack of artillery support. But yeah, clearly the best source now is Uncle Dreizin.
The Grayzone a Ukrainian psy-op or anything other than perfectly above-board? Two of their members are on the Ukrainian hit list web site (Aaron Mate and Anya Parympil.). Get real.
LOL. Not the Grayzone. The Grey Zone.
He is talking about a telegram channel that is entirely in Russian.
Honestly I don’t think the GreyZone is a Ukrainian PsyOp. The channel has been operating since 2013 and publishing a lot of exclusive content from the Syrian battlefield, using the logo of “Reverse Side Of The Medal”. The channel is linked to the Wagner Group, that’s why it has been always critical of the Russian army and state.
But nevertheless, there are tons of channels pretending to be pro Russian but producing Kyiv’s propaganda, one copying the famous channel RVvoenkor’s name with over 600k followers.
mRNA HIV-! factor will be in play by mid-summer next year, as Kennedy will make a big deal about the Vax and vaccines in general.. It is still in the coner-up factor range now, but statistically significant with an overall rise in the death rate from the traditional 1.2% an now in preliminary reports out in publication on ‘unattributed causes of deaths’ in buried form, at 2% and expected to rise at a geometric rate (Dr MCAM: ‘The time of tears is coming.’ [first hand verbal]). People are Sheeple by in large.. Go figure.
Way off-topic, but OK, I’ll let you slide, one time. If we had a 2% annual death rate, it would be near-catastrophic, almost (not quite but almost) comparable to my Variant X predictions. However, this Kennedy guy is not going anywhere, sorry. He could be proven 100% right about everything, and he still won’t get anywhere. That’s just not how it works. He’s an outsider AND a one-trick pony. Not happening.
Why off topic? Isn’t Kennedy running for POTUS? And I think I read a mention of the 2024 election.
In this post, I didn’t write about Kennedy (who is totally irrelevant), nor did I write about the vakk-seenz or death rates. Read my goddamn comments policy.
Fair enough, I just assumed, obviously incorrectly, that the poster was trying to bring Kennedy in as a possible factor in the election if “ ..UNLESS they have…..
…..a SEVERE crisis of confidence…..
…..and get a strong whiff…..
…..of the fear of GOD.”
But I was wrong.
Apologies for clogging up the goddamn comments.
Years ago I read an interview with Navalny in which the interviewer was shocked/disappointed that he would not disavow statements that he had made about 10 years prior in which he expressed very pro Neo-Nazi sentiments . He insisted that it was what he believed . So it is no surprise that his followers become full blown Nazi’s . Curiously the “opposition” in Belarus have similar beliefs . None of them are Democracy fans .
I’ve heard that Wagner was started by the GRU and is still run by them . Prigohzin was only brought in to be the public face and distract attention . Even though he claims to have founded it , I think that someone else was given credit for doing so several years ago . Google is not helping me find him though .
Prigozhyn is clearly the head of Wagner PR/marketing, probably finance and HR, and, perhaps, business development and long-term planning. Correct, he’s not a military guy. We’ll probably never know the names of the men running the logistical or “tactical” sides.
Parents in Russia also told me that their dislike for Navalny was his attitude towards the young people who had started following him. He would tell them to congregate without a permit and then not show up himself, setting their children up to be the ones in trouble..
On the Zaluzhny video, in addition to his palm, he flashed the “V” sign twice. That seems more Russian. If he is uninjured, my guess is that he is in Russia.
I really don’t understand why Russian neo-nazis hate Putin’s regime. Usually, neonazis are rather far-right retards who worship Vikings and Norse imagery and are usually either neo-pagans or crusader-like Christians. I guess they hate Soviet symbols still present in Russia, but other than that Putin has a strongly conservative and nationalist rhetoric. If you look at Turkey or Hungary, their far-right nationalists support their leaders and are very opposed to euro-Atlanticism. Russian neo-nazis (like Ukrainian neo-nazis) seem to be the unnatural product of the sex between euro-atlanticist Globohomo and the SS. Strange species.
What is even more puzzling is seeing all these conservative people in the West showing a visceral hate for Putin. They would chose a guy with Putin’s traditional views on family, country and religion over any other candidate if he happened to run for office in their own countries, but they hate him because Russia is antidemocratic and in some strange way communist, or something
The Russian government may have mostly been suppressing the Neo Nazis as well as the more radical Nationalists Russian or otherwise. The new constitution alludes to a form of lingustic and cultural nationalsim but, iirc, avoids any mentions of ethnicity. It’s deliberately vague that way.
Neonazis in Post-soviet countries are different. I haven’t studied them of course but from what common knowledge I have (being Russian), they are a product of the late 80’s-90’s ideological vacuum and economic collapse mixed with football fan culture. Mass migration from Central Asia and the Caucasus to Russia also heavily boosted the movement since inter-ethnical conflicts flowered during that time as the state was too weak to address the problem.
The peak of the popularity of the movement in Russia was between mid90s to mid 00’s, then crackdowns began. There were several large riots against various (mostly Caucasian) diasporas and retaliations by the latter which culminated in Bolotnaya riots in 2010, a crackdown followed.
The second culling so to speak was in Ukraine, 2014 and later years, by then many radical nationalists and nazis found themselves pitted against each other in Donbass. Now we are looking at the third and hopefully last.
By the way, not all Russian nazis hated the Soviet Union or the soviet symbols, see Eduard Limonov & his National Bolshevik Party.
They hate Putin’s Russia for the same reason the Ukrainian Nazis do: they feel that the reason Europeans don’t accept them is because of the mixing with Asians and Turkics. They are desperate to be seen as white.
In any case the upper echelons of the Nazi party were sexual degenerates of one kind or another. The notion that they were conservative is a myth.
I know something about far-right movements from my own experience. In high school, I was what Romanians call a retard ‘neo-legionary’, inspired by the fascist Romanian Iron Guard, from the ’30s, and General Ion Antonescu (Hitler’s ally). While I enjoyed that shit mainly because of their ‘orthodoxism’ and ‘conservatism’, I didn’t care about jews and I didn’t hate the foreigners, but that was the trend there. Many of them had strange ideas about ethnicity, they saw romanians as a sort of aryans, descendents of the dacians, and strongly despised the russians and the jews (along with anything from Africa and Asia). But they were very anti-western, because they see the west as being a sort of gay-land. So I can’t imagine a neo-nazi fighting alongside liberals lgbtqwerty activists.
You can’t imagine it, yet it’s actually happening. Look up Sarah Ashton-Cirillo if you don’t already know who they are.
One way to think about Globohomo is that it is the cutting edge of white supremacy. The Nazis gave ethnic solidarity a bad name, so they had to find some other meme to appeal to the mentally ill edgelords that fill their ranks. Turns out it’s much easier to control people through their libidos.
Think about it. Where does this disgusting ideology come from? Who funds it? Which countries are resisting it?
Once you understand that this person and this person are not in the same ethnic group (at least not anymore), let alone the same species, it will make sense.
I’m pretty much sure it’s impossible for a random guy / an average Joe to found a PMC in any country. Especially a PMC that operates tanks & fighter jets.
Any PMC is backed up by the government and its military. The only difference is that a PMC doesn’t follow the rules / the laws / the regulations that are mandatory for the army / navy / etc, that’s one of the reason why the PMC’s exist.
Prigozhin is a PR guy who earned enough trust to do all the PR, he is likely in charge of HR as well.
There are pictures on the Internet of Prigozhin and the miltiary / ex military / ex KGB/FSB/GRU guys who actually (or should I say allegedly) command and operate the PMC. One of the guys had n4zi tattoos. IIRC it was Dmitry Utkin and he was born in Ukraine and some say he had a call sign “Wagner” and he is the founder of the Wagner PMC. So it goes.
Looking for this guy?
Would a very low, say %25, voter turnout in a US federal election be newsworthy?
Sorry, what’s your point?
