It is now September 2016, just two months before the Presidential elections, and both political camps have already managed to disgust a great number of the US voters, by offering almost no comprehensive political or economic program, by offering… close to nothing!
While Donald Trump is lashing out at the ‘enemy within’, during his dark moments that are increasingly resembling an advanced stage of delirium tremens (complete with a mad chase after white mice and promises to cleanse society from some imaginary and filthy rapists and social benefits guzzlers, that are constantly pouring from the south), Ms. Clinton is saddling her horse, and preparing the West for yet another crusade, this time against Russia.
The more exposed Ms. Clinton’s colorful corruption scandals become (mainly those that are pegged to her and her husband’s Clinton Foundation), the more obvious it gets that the Democratic Primaries were shamelessly rigged. The more empty the words and promises she keeps regurgitating at the citizens of the country that she is aspiring to lead become, the more aggressive her attacks against that big creature which lives far-far away become; the one somewhere behind the horizon: the Russian Bear!
Ms. Clinton’s campaign is literally degenerating into crude anti-Russian propaganda. It is hard not to recall the original iconic 1962 Cold War conspiracy thriller movie The Manchurian Candidate, full of those “Dirty commie tricks”. Just as in Senator McCarthy’s era (1947-57), Ms. Clinton’s aides and supporters are spreading irrational fears and ludicrous paranoia. Listen to them, and you would soon get convinced that something ‘evil’, ‘monstrous’ and ‘thoroughly unacceptable’ is crawling out from the Russian ‘beast’ on the daily basis.
The images are often Chagall-esque, with Russian spies and hackers flying magically on some huge fairy-tale beds or carpets, levitating right above all the major American cities.
Russian cartoons and animated films are brainwashing American children (therefore they should be banned), Russian television and radio stations are spreading vitriolic anti-Western propaganda, and therefore should be censored.
Russia and its President were first presented by the Western ideologues as a continuation of ‘that evil and Communist Soviet Union’. When that hype clearly failed to work (most people all over the world are actually increasingly sympathetic towards socialist, and even Communist ideals), the ‘strategy’ changed, got turned upside down, and the Russians were now suddenly accused of supporting ‘extreme right-wing movements and politicians’, including the US Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump.
In countless propaganda fables, President Putin is depicted in the darkest colors imaginable. He is a strongman who is threatening Ukraine, the West and the rest of the world. His ‘apparatus’ is successfully infiltrating the US establishment, and derailing ‘democratic’ elections.
Whatever Russia does (or doesn’t do), it is being smeared within an instant by the ‘liberal’ pro-Clinton mass media, which is behaving in an increasingly servile and disciplined manner.
It all clearly resembles those dark, distant days of the ‘Grand Communicator’ Ronald Reagan, with some additional à la Barry Goldwater seasoning.
The Russian government and almost all Russian media outlets are trying to stay calm. They are trying to argue in a rational manner. They are coming up with countless initiatives in order to defuse the tension. But the goodwill emanating from Moscow (or Beijing) only further infuriates the Western propagandists.
It is becoming clear that Ms. Clinton and her team of indoctrinators, as well as her media outlets, are trying to do something that is not only appalling and idiotic, but also extremely dangerous and imprudent – they are sticking a long iron rod with a sharp end into a hole inhabited by an enormous, peacefully hibernating bear!
Nothing good can come out of such a scenario
When provoked and threatened, when awoken from its deep winter slumber, a bear reacts in a predictable and fully justifiable manner: it dashes out from its hiding place, outraged and ready to defend itself.
Whoever terrorizes the creature – be it some stupid stars and stripes covered donkey or elephant – he or she can expect a bloody and fierce fight.
Patience has its limits. There is no reason why one country or one group of aggressive, thuggish countries (predominantly the United States and its European allies, plus Japan) should be treated differently, with greater tolerance, then the rest of the world. For more than 500 years the world had been burning, suffering from continuous and brutal onslaughts coming from the West. Hundreds of millions of innocent people have been destroyed, murdered.
Russia, like Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Latin America and the South Pacific, have been attacked, again and again, with horrifying regularity, and for no logical reason reduced to ashes.
Not surprisingly, most of the Russian people that I recently spoke to (be it in its West, in Moscow or St. Petersburg, or in the East, in Vladivostok, Khabarovsk or Petropavlovsk in Kamchatka) do not find the situation amusing at all, just as no one is finding it amusing in China, which is another historical victim of Western colonialist terror. Both great enormous nations are now being targeted by propaganda and military provocations instigated by NATO, but mainly from Washington, London and Tokyo.
Both North America and Europe have plenty to clean up at home!
While optimism and great progress is clearly visible in Chinese and Russian cities and countryside, there is hardly any joy detectable inside the Empire. In the US, Germany, France and Japan, people appear to be depressed, confused, even resigned. Deep sarcasm and nihilism abound everywhere. Despite long centuries of plundering the world, the West is deteriorating; its political and economic system, and its hypocritical ‘democracy model’, are all collapsing.
Ms. Clinton (and her husband) should actually roll up their sleeves, immediately! They should grab a shovel and broom, and begin cleaning the house. Then they should get rid of their security dudes and do what all great Chinese and Russian emperors and tsars used to do – go humbly and undercover into the streets of their cities, and listen to their people! And then: serve them, the people, instead of assisting the greedy traders and (to borrow the words of a great Czech poet František Halas) those “pigs of the markets”!
To attack the Great Russian Bear or/and Great Chinese Dragon will only lead to destruction, grief and death. Even the North Americans and Europeans would gain absolutely nothing from such action.
This time the creatures will not back up. They will and should, most likely side-by-side, fight against those who would dare to come to their lands with the sword.
Would killing of millions be worth it, Ms. Clinton? What would be the reason for this bloodletting: to defend that monstrous and defunct system that is ruling over the West and all of its colonies? Do you really believe in the merits of this system? Or are you fighting for it simply by inertia? You don’t do it for money, do you? You are already so rich, Ms. Clinton… How much more do you really need? Should we try to set up an account, a global collection? And if we collect a certain amount, would you agree to retire and play table tennis or go jogging around some gold-pated fishpond?
I don’t really understand you, Ms. Clinton. I don’t understand you, or your cohorts. And perhaps that is good. It is almost as if we belong to two different universes.
I hope you will come to your senses: I hope you will not cross the line. But if you do, if you insist on going hunting, if you really dare to attack the Bear, or the Dragon, or both, no neutrality will be possible, anymore. You will force people all over the world to take sides. And you know where most of this poor Planet scarred and brutalized by the West for centuries, will stand! And this time, seriously, the survival of this damned, dear Planet of ours would be at stake, you know… The era of gentle sarcasm would be over. It would be the final struggle for survival, against Western imperialism.
But there is still time to stop. Please do!

"Please don’t write about Ya’ir Golan!" a friend begged me, “Anything a leftist like you writes will only harm him!"
So I abstained for some weeks. But I can’t keep quiet any longer.
General Ya’ir Golan, the deputy Chief of Staff of the Israeli army, made a speech on Holocaust Memorial Day. Wearing his uniform, he read a prepared, well-considered text that triggered an uproar which has not yet died down.
Dozens of articles have been published in its wake, some condemning him, some lauding him. Seems that nobody could stay indifferent.
The main sentence was: "If there is something that frightens me about ...
The truth about Kosovo and Metochia.
This documentary film was made by the Czech Republic TV and banned in all mainstream globalist media in western countries.
It will reveal to you the horrifying story of Kosovo that nobody ever wanted to tell you and debunking all hoaxes, lies and propaganda NATO used for trigger events...
In 1999 NATO bombed Serbia for 78 days and destroyed everything on its way bridges,hospitals,schools, telecommunication buildings, military bases...killing more than 2.500 and wound more than 5.000 civilians.
One of the reasons why NATO bombed Serbia is to build the biggest military base in Albania, so they can move ...
North Korea cheered this month when a man with a knife and a history of violent behavior slashed the face of Mark Lippert, the U.S. ambassador to South Korea. The attack in Seoul was “a knife shower of justice,” North Korea said, praising it as “deserved punishment for warmonger United States.”
If that sounds mean-spirited, consider this: For years, North Korea has taught schoolchildren to bayonet effigies of U.S. soldiers. Under its young dictator, Kim Jong Un, the government has suggested it was prepared to nuke Washington, Austin and Southern California. More than 40 years ago, Kim Il Sung, the “Great ...
The Islamic State is not only protected by the US and its allies, it is trained and financed by US-NATO, with the support of Israel and Washington’s Persian Gulf allies.
Al Qaeda Affiliated Entities are “Intelligence Assets. Instruments of US Intelligence. The Global War on Terrorism is a fabrication used to justify a war of conquest. The Jihadist terrorists are “Made in America”. They are instruments of US intelligence, yet they are presented to public opinion as “enemies of America”.
The Obama administration has embarked upon the ultimate war crime, a Worldwide military adventure, “a long war”, which threatens the future of humanity.

The world is lectured frequently by the United States of America — the One Indispensable Nation — about how to behave, on the grounds that, as President Obama declared, «from London and Prague, to Tokyo and Seoul, to Rio and Jakarta... there is a new confidence in our leadership».
He didn’t mention Amman, Baghdad, Beijing, Beirut, Caracas or the capitals of so many other countries in which the majority of citizens, according to the Pew Research Centre and other pollsters such as Marketwatch, regard the United States as an aggressive and malign manipulator of world affairs.
Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton went further than President Obama in glorifying ...
The measures being taken by the government of President François Hollande in response to Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris constitute an unprecedented attack on democratic rights.
The Socialist Party (PS) government has declared a state of emergency and mobilized more than 100,000 security personnel throughout the country, including regular police, gendarmes, paramilitary riot police and military forces. It is impossible to walk the streets of any major city without running into individuals decked out in camouflage or dressed in black, toting automatic rifles. These paramilitary forces have been given the power to raid any home and arrest or kill anyone declared ...
The State Department described Hitler as a moderate who was holding off the forces, the dangerous forces of the left … and of the right, namely the extremist Nazis,’ explained the noted scholar.

Benito Mussolini, Italian dictator, speaks at the dedication ceremonies of Sabandia, central Italy, on Sept. 24, 1934.
MUNICH — While the typical narrative of American history positions the United States as a supporter of democracy and opponent of fascism which helped to defeat the Nazis, key figures in Washington also supported dangerous dictators in Italy and Germany ...
Zbigniew Brzezinski, former national security advisor to President Jimmy Carter, died Friday at a hospital in Virginia at the age of 89. Though the New York Times acknowledged that the former government advisor was a “hawkish strategic theorist,” misrepresenting his legacy as one of otherwise infinite positivity may not be as easy as the establishment might like to think.
As the United Kingdom plays around with levels of the so-called “terror threat” following a devastating attack by an ISIS-inspired individual — and as the Philippines goes into an almost complete state of martial law following ISIS-inspired destruction — Brzezinski’s timely death ...
Twelve years ago, March 24th 1999, marks the commencement of NATO’s aerial bombardment of Yugoslavia. The bombings which lasted for almost three months, were followed by the military invasion (under a bogus UN mandate) and illegal occupation of the province of Kosovo.
In the course of the last week, the so-called international community, backed by the UN Security Council has called for the bombing of Libya, a sovereign country, allegedly to protect the lives of civilians under the logo of “Responibility to Protect”.
The covert operations, the military strategies applied in Libya not to mention the process of media disformation bear a canny ...
Recently, the West and the Middle East pundits and analysts have been trying to analyze the provisions of the new draft constitution proposed by the Russian side as a solution to the Syrian conflict.
Naturally, analyzing the provisions, any of the sides involved in the conflict is trying to present itself as the legitimate government. That raises the question of whether to adopt such a draft or not, because a newly appointed government would have to comply with a new constitution. Not surprisingly, not only the moderate opposition and illegal armed groups, but the official Syrian authorities as well subject the ...
The Bellamy salute is the salute described by Francis Bellamy, Christian socialist minister and author, to accompany the American Pledge of Allegiance, which he had authored. During the period when it was used with the Pledge of Allegiance, it was sometimes known as the "flag salute". Later, during the 1920s and 1930s, Italian fascists and Nazis adopted a salute which had a similar form, and which was derived from the so-called Roman salute. This resulted in controversy over the use of the Bellamy salute in the United States. It was officially replaced by the hand-over-heart salute when Congress amended the ...
An eerily familiar sense of regional unease has crept over all the former republics of Yugoslavia.
Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar echoed the Balkan zeitgeist when he warned at a press conference this week that:
“If the migrant crisis is not adequately controlled as agreed at the summit in Brussels there is a possibility of conflict situations between the states of the Western Balkans. It is possible that a small conflict would initiate a wider reaction because of the very difficult recent history (of the region), which is why it is very important that we solve this crisis together as no country can solve this problem by itself.”
It seems like everybody knows that ...
Later this month, Barack Obama will become the first sitting US president to visit the city of Hiroshima, Japan. The dropping of an atomic bomb on Hiroshima by the American military on August 6, 1945, and the destruction three days later of the Japanese city of Nagasaki, rank among the greatest war crimes of the 20th century.
One would think that after 71 years, the United States would finally be prepared to acknowledge that the incineration of two defenseless Japanese cities, causing some 200,000 deaths, was a militarily unnecessary act.
Nothing of the sort will happen. Obama “will not revisit the decision ...
“The Declaration of Independence implicitly legalized the enslavement of Black people and the genocide of Native people within the context of the developing American capitalist nation-state.”
July 4th is once again approaching and principled left forces need to use the day as a teaching moment. In a speech given on July 4th, 1852, Frederick Douglas spoke before a packed Rochester Hall and did just that, highlighting the hypocrisy that stains the July 4th celebration of the American Declaration of Independence. The Declaration of Independence, as Douglass emphasized, held no worth to the millions of Black people in the United States whose existence was ...
One of the West’s top points in condemning Vladimir Putin’s “regime” since 2007 has been his alleged suppression of democratic institutions, including an assault on media freedom and imposition of government-directed propaganda. This week, the accusation was repeated in a resolution of the European Parliament calling for stronger counter-measures in defense of European values against “information warfare” from Moscow.
The charges — that Russian media are only an instrument of state propaganda directed at the domestic population to keep Russian citizens in line and at foreign audiences to sow dissent among Russia’s neighbors and within the European Union — are taken ...

Harvard University has established a modern version of the Catholic Church’s Index Librorum Prohibitorum, a list of prohibited online publications which are tagged as “fake” and “false”, broadly following the politically tainted “List” of censored independent and alternative media. As we recall the Catholic Church’s Index was a list of books “deemed heretical, anti-clerical or lascivious”.1
Ex Cathedra, Harvard has decided in one fell swoop that virtually the entire US based “Alternative Media” pertaining to tens of thousands of authors would be categorized not only as fake news, but fake science, knowledge and analysis.
The Harvard Index however goes far beyond the Catholic Church’s Index which selectively banned books ...
