Our thanks to New Zealand Russophobe Trevor Louden for this message (below), which shows the true spirit of the Russophobes and the way they behave when their reserves of logic and reason are depleted. This is what anyone who opposes the political class and its war machine must endure. And they haven’t the least inkling that they are but pawns in a spiritual battle that has been ongoing for ages.
Ephesians 6:12: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
This sort of attack always reminds me of those old kiddie westerns of the 50s where the good guy in the white outfit is shooting it out with the bad guy in black and the bad guy runs out of ammunition. Invariably, when the bad guy’s six shooter went ‘click,’ he would absurdly look down angrily at the six shooter as if it had betrayed him, and then hurl it in angry desperation toward the rock behind which the guy in white was hiding.
Last night I began an exchange with an editorialist who had written objectively about Putin but tried to establish that he had aspired to become another czar. I pointed out that Putin was really just being Russian and showed him why I thought so.
He responded that he was actually not anti-Putin but was afraid of what people might say if he sounded overly supportive.
This is a new form of political correctness and it is as dangerous as the old form.
This kind of fear is what allows the neocons carte blanche. This invisible wall against freedom of expression regarding ambitions of war must be broken down once and for all.
Now is the time to speak the truth and damn the consequences.
Here we are, headed into another of many predictable cycles since the 50s. If it goes as it did in the past, Obama fatique will lead us to elect another neocon to the White House, who will lead us into still another war that we will, as usual, not win and that will further deplete our resources. The BRICS countries will continue their relentless attack on the dollar, but with renewed effort. The war effort, led by central banks, the media, and unscrupulous politicians, will heat up and our boys will again be thrust into danger, this time to save a currency that these same evil people have destroyed, all by themselves, with no help from Russia or China, with Keynesian policies like bailouts of banks, QEs, bail-ins, financial Ponzi games, housing bubbles, subprime lending, and on and on ad infinitum. None of these disastrous policies were the fault of Russia, China or any other scapegoat nation. We are our own worst enemy and now we are at that desperate point in time when the last option for the wretched miscreants is war.
We will lose the war not because we lack the might but because the political class has lost so much of its credibility that we are rapidly coming up on a tipping point, and once critical mass is reached, there will be a backlash against the war mongers by We the People that they cannot control.
PS. Not sure who Axis Sally was.
