The Point of No Return

Dmitry Medvedev (Дмитрий Медведев)

Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev — about the causes of the current geopolitical crisis and the guarantee of preserving the future for the whole world.

Last year's anniversary — the 100th anniversary of the formation of the USSR - was held against the background of tectonic processes that originated three decades ago and provoked powerful, destructive shocks in 2022. With a metallic crash, the foundations of the post-Soviet world order collapsed, which until recently was considered not the best, but still more or less familiar. The international airbags did not work, and now the cracks go wide and deep into the entire system of maintaining peace on the planet.

The reasons for what is happening are sought in the legacy of a long and relatively new history. After all, what we are witnessing now has happened more than once — at the moment when another world empire was coming to the end of its existence.

The beginning of the tragedy that is unfolding in Ukraine today goes back in time; to the end of the last century. But let us rather turn to the events of the relatively recent past, which many of us have witnessed, specifically to the moment when the Soviet Union collapsed. Our powerful country has seen confrontations between the blocks and disagreement about nuclear missiles, but has after World War II nevertheless largely based itself on agreements and the mutual interests between participating countries, on food supplies to its satellites, on tractors and tanks, on "socialist realism," although the communist regime lasted much less than the centuries-old Russian Empire it defeated.

Three Undeniable Truths From Putin’s Speech

Eddie Scarry

The national media, for their own reasons, don’t want you to hear what Vladimir Putin said about the war in Ukraine.

Other than that Russian President Vladimir Putin declared an end to a nuclear arms treaty with the U.S. — no biggie! — you’ll probably hear precisely nothing else from the press about what he had to say Tuesday during his lengthy address. That doesn’t mean the rest of his speech was unimportant. It means the national media, for their own reasons, don’t want you to hear it.

But you should hear it because when you remove the name “Vladimir Putin” from the equation, what he said during that 100-minute address to his nation was both indisputably true and rational, even if it deflates the media’s incessant, eye-roll-worthy framing of the conflict in Ukraine as “Putin’s unprovoked war” and “a fight for democracy.” (Gag.) Here are three examples:

1. “The U.S. has used Ukraine to prepare for a large war. They have publicly admitted that.” This is, in fact, implicit if not official policy articulated by the Biden administration. The president himself declared early last year that Putin “cannot remain in power,” a threat of forced regime change if there ever was one. Biden kicked off the week by visiting the capital of Ukraine, a literal war zone with no U.S. military presence, as if to claim the conflict is as much ours as it is Ukraine’s (and it is, given that we’re footing about two-thirds of Ukraine’s defense cost).

Even Republicans in Congress are flirting with the ignition of global war. GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said we should designate Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has declared that the “defeat” of Russia is “the No. 1 priority for the United States right now.” (So much for lifting up America’s poor. They can wait, I guess.)

The Special Military Operation: Drive neo-Nazism into the ground

Dmitry Medvedev
(Дмитрий Медведев)
(A translation)

A special operation has been going on for a year now. A year, as our servicemen restore order, peace and justice on our land, protect our people and destroy the roots of neo-Nazism. They are heroes. The whole country helps them, supplying the front with everything necessary.

Victory will be achieved. We all want it to be as soon as possible. And that day will come. We will return our territories and reliably protect our people who suffered during the years of genocide and shelling.

And what's next? Further negotiations will take place, which, I am sure, will become difficult and nervous. First of all, because the formal participants in the negotiations on the part of our opponent are one, and the actual leaders are completely different. And decisions for the Kiev regime will be made, of course, not by some Zelensky, if he is still alive, or his clique. The decision will be made overseas by those in whose hands arms supplies to Kiev and the allocation of money to maintain the remains of the Ukrainian economy. The motives of our country's main enemies are obvious: to weaken Russia as much as possible, to bleed us for a long time. Therefore, they are not interested in ending the conflict. But sooner or later, according to historical laws, they will do it. And then there will be some kind of agreement. Naturally, without fundamental agreements on real borders or on a new Helsinki Pact ensuring security in Europe. Just some kind of agreement.

Closer and closer to a new front: "Ukrainians are preparing an attack on Transnistria", say Russians - Pro-Russian protests in Moldova

The Kiev regime is preparing an armed provocation against Transnistria, the Russian Defense Ministry said on its Telegram channel, which Ria Novosti reported, and is expected to set the autonomous region of Moldova where Russian troops are deployed on fire!

"According to available information, in the near future, the Kiev regime is preparing an armed challenge against the Moldovan Republic of Transnistria, which will be carried out by units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, including with the participation of the Azov Nazi formation," the report says.

Obviously, such a plan gives Russia an excuse to intervene!

This information comes in conjunction with the provocations of the Moldovan leadership, which has actually called for Russian troops to be expelled from the region!

For its part, the Tass news agency is reporting statements by Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Galuzin, according to which the West has instructed the Moldovan government in Chisinau to stop all dealings with the Moscow-backed Transnistrian government.

That region, most of whose population is Russian, seceded in 1990 from mostly Romanian-speaking Moldova, and during the break-up of the USSR the following year Russian separatists fought government forces and after a brief civil war Transnistria became de facto self-governing.

In response to the Russian defence ministry's accusations, Moldova claimed that it was spreading false news. "State authorities do not confirm the information spread this morning by the Russian Defense Ministry," a message from the Chisinau government on its official Telegram account said.

Putin's Response to NATO: We'll Be Loading Nuclear Warheads on the Non-convertible Burevestnik, Kinzhal, Zircon!

Russian President V. Putin announced the withdrawal from the New START nuclear treaty, stressing that he signed a decree putting ground-based strategic systems on operational readiness. The Russian President said that the reason for this was NATO's attempt to strike strategic bases with drones such as the Engels base through Ukraine.

This practically means four things:

1. Mass production and equipping the     Kh-47M2 Kinzhal supersonic missile, 3M22     Zircon, the Poseidon torpedo, the Iskander     and especially the 9M730 Burevestnik with nuclear warheads
2. Return to classical nuclear testing by eliminating the use of computer simulation, as was done so far.
3. Equipping Iran in the first phase with nuclear weapons and know-how.
4. The Americans will have no access to the strategic nuclear arsenal of the new super-super-weapons      missiles which Russia is reportedly building at a high rate.

Withdrawal from the New START Treaty holds many unpleasant surprises. It is in fact a vertical escalation, a readiness to use nuclear weapons and a massive rearmament of nuclear strategic forces with new systems such as the 9M730 Burevestnik.

The main mission of the Burevestnik missile is to destroy enemy operational bases, such as the land bases of the NATO Aegis anti-ballistic missile system. The missile, although initial estimates indicated that it had a range of 10,000 km, according to different estimates its range can reach up to 20,000 km thanks to its nuclear reactor, putting within its effective range almost all the West's anti-ballistic missile systems. The effectiveness of the new missile is ensured by the powerful nuclear warhead with which it is equipped.

The war upon us all is the war we will win

Alex Krainer

John F. Kennedy warned us about the "monolithic and ruthless conspiracy..."

...mayhem! We have train derailments, massive toxic fires (at least ten counted around the world in the last few days), destruction of food production facilities, hysteria about genders, domestic terrorists and balloons, the relentless war escalation and nonstop pandemic fearmongering… What otherwise would be regarded as random incidents now seems so frequent and pervasive, it’s hard not to be suspicious. Something’s up.

The monolithic and ruthless conspiracy – More than 60 years ago John F. Kennedy spoke about the “monolithic and ruthless conspiracy” that was using “covert means for expanding its sphere of influence.” He also warned us of the “very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon” by the perpetrators of this conspiracy to advance their agenda.

In 2020, the Covid 19 pandemic offered the conspirators an ideal opportunity. The worldwide emergency enabled them to launch the decisive gambit, sidestep the legal strictures of democratic rule and attempt to create a global authoritarian police state. The experience was hugely distressing to the people in almost every nation, but it also revealed the nature, methods and the objectives of the conspiracy.

While the policy response to the pandemic was unscientific and contrary to the established public health norms, it was also nearly identical in most nations, suggesting that the incoherence was not an error, but a deliberate feature of the planned policy response. That policy, together with the media-driven narrative and the draconian censorship of all dissent was clearly coordinated at a global level.

Putin's Message 2023: Russia has proven its right to be itself

Elena Panina (Елена Панина)
Director of the RUSSTRAT Institute

RE.: Presidential Address to Federal Assembly

Russia is raising the stakes in the strategic confrontation with the United States, NATO, and the entire global West. After withstanding a whole year under unprecedented pressure, our country has proved that it is ready for a long, exhausting fight. | There will be no quick victory. But we are united, confident in our abilities and believe in our righteousness. We are not clinging to the ghosts of the past, and no longer linking our future to other people's chimeras. And we will emerge victorious from this battle - building Russia according to our own models. This is the general thrust of Russian President Vladimir Putin's address to the Federal Assembly today.

What is the increase in rates? First and foremost, of course, is the suspension of Russia's participation in the START-3 treaty. This decision by Putin significantly alters the geopolitical stakes on the planet, opens the door to a nuclear arms race, and puts the West's lingering fear of becoming an ash heap as a result of a global nuclear conflict back on the agenda. The responsibility for this old and new fear of the West is actually lies with the United States as the main culprit of all current crises, the source of all troubles, the focus of everything immoral and pernicious that exists in the West. It is to America and its instrument of control over Europe — NATO — that its satellites should make claims. This is the main "message" of Putin to Western audiences - along with the phrase, as if uttered in passing, "The more long-range systems arrive in Ukraine, the further we will be forced to move the threat away from our borders."

Russia Banned from Munich Security Conference

On Friday, the Munich Security Conference began, all things Russia and Nazi-infested Ukraine its main focus.

Presidents, prime ministers and other officials from scores of nations are attending, including the Biden regime’s Kamala Harris and interventionist Blinken. Germany’s delegation includes foreign minister Baerbock of we’re at war on Russia infamy. An array of unindicted war criminals include Biden regime officials, Baerbock, Britain’s Rishi Sunak, France’s Macron and US-installed NATO puppet Stoltenberg.

Ongoing from Friday through Sunday, no Russian officials were invited to attend for the first time since the 1990s. At a press conference days earlier, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, said the following:

💬 “We regret to say that in recent years, the conference has been increasingly transformed into such a transatlantic forum, losing its inclusiveness and objectivity.” “Interest in Moscow for this event dropped noticeably.”

In February 2007, Vladimir Putin addressed the Munich International Conference on Security, stating the following:

💬 “NATO put its frontline forces on our borders.” Its hostile actions are unrelated to “the modernization of the (war-making) alliance itself or with ensuring security in Europe.” “On the contrary, (they) represent a serious provocation that reduces the level of mutual trust.” “And we have a right to ask: against whom is this expansion intended?” “And what happened to assurances (that) western (regimes) made after the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact?”

War of the Worlds

James Howard Kunstler

“The Chinese spy balloons are most likely an op to pull the civil/military’s collective chain.” — Thomas L. Thomas

Didn’t you get the feeling this weekend that we’re living in HG Wells’ classic tale of the earth invaded by sinister alien spacecrafts? Our government is playing the story like a bassoon concerto. “American officials do not know what the objects were, much less their purpose or who sent them,” The New York Times reported, poaching a line from every horror movie of the 1950s. When do the giant ants show up on Fremont Street in Las Vegas?

Looks like they’ll keep up the suspense as long as possible, too. Oh, we can’t retrieve that thing up in Alaska due to white-out weather conditions… Oh, that other thing — the eight-sided silver tic-tac — it fell into Lake Huron, glug glug… and that first one, the big balloon payload, lies deep in Davy Jones’ Locker now. You’ll have to stand by, folks….

Let’s face it, all the other mindfucks set in motion by the folks-in-charge are not just losing their mojo — they’re generating a lot of nasty blow-back in the way of widespread distrust of authority and institutional collapse. Even Woked-up Democrat voters begin to suspect that the vaxxes they greeted like a holy deliverance might not be so good for you after all. I’m waiting for Rob Reiner’s head to explode when he starts to notice how many young SAG-AFTRA members are waking up dead in West Hollywood.

More to the point, you are now correct to suspect that the entire Covid-19 episode, from the design of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus to the gene-modification shots put out by Pfizer and Moderna (erroneously labeled “vaccines”), was a joint Intel-DOD operation, not really a public health crisis. The abiding mystery is… why? Why turn Western Civilization upside down and inside out and then try to pound the whole thing down a rat-hole?

Frankly, the only angle that makes sense is that our government is captive to a hostile force. The WEF, the WHO, and the UN are the most obvious culprits, certainly the most talked-up, the most active on-the-scene. But until a few years ago these organizations had no real influence on the world.

What would a possible move by the NATO secretary general to head the World Bank mean?

Elena Panina (Елена Панина)
Director of the RUSSTRAT Institute

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg's term of office may be extended until 2024, and then he has a good chance of becoming president of the World Bank, RIA Novosti reported citing the German Welt am Sonntag.

It seems that Stoltenberg's services to the collective West are very great indeed. After all, he was previously only planning to move to the position of head of the Norwegian Central Bank. — But what does this news mean if you look at it from a purely Russian domestic perspective?

Until recently, the Russian political class, with few exceptions, relied on the following definition: the US and NATO are our geopolitical adversaries, while the WB and IMF are some neutral, "supra-polar" financial and economic institutions, cooperation with which is necessary for the full-scale economic development of the country, and the signals coming from them are important benchmarks for assessing the effectiveness of government action.

— Any other views on the activities of the WB and the IMF were considered inadequate and marginal. Surprisingly, this perception of the World Bank is still present today.

The U.S. Dictatorship

Eric Zuesse

Only by means of intense deceit does the U.S. Government allege that it and its allies are ‘democratic’ and that the countries that they impose sanctions against and overthrow (or try to overthrow) in coups and invasions are not.

Irrespective of whether some of the countries that the U.S. Government targets for overthrow are or are not dictatorships, America itself certainly is, and it has the world’s highest percentage of its population living in prison — which might suffice alone to qualify America as being a police-state — and perhaps the worst one.

Some of America’s allies are among the world’s best-known dictatorships, such as Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, and such cases as those, alone, demonstrate without any doubt, that America’s many sanctions and coups and invasions have nothing to do with democracy versus dictatorship, but are pure PR in order to fool the gullible throughout the world to believe the U.S.

Government’s lies to the effect that these aggressions against so many countries (such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Guatemala, Chile, Iran, Libya, Indonesia and so many others) are decent or even nobly intentioned, when the fact is that America is simply the world’s worst police-state, and is lying in order to deceive the global public to believe that it’s instead the global champion of democracy and of freedom. All of America’s foreign policies are justified wholly or partly on the basis of lies — intent to deceive fools. Is it not, by now, clear that the time is long-since past when anyone should continue to accept that intensely deceitful regime’s lies and its constant aggressions?


James Howard Kunstler

“The White House has taken the entire West in such a direction and speed of triumphalism, arrogance and “egregious” imbecility that there is no going back or reversal possible without a total defeat of the official narrative and the consequent eternal shame.” — Hugo Dionisio

The New York Times — indicted this week as a chronic purveyer of untruths by no less than their supposed ally, The Columbia Journalism Review — is lying to you again this morning.

This whopper is an artful diversion from the reality on-the-ground that Ukraine is just about finished in this tragic and idiotic conflict staged by the geniuses behind their play-thing President “Joe Biden.” By the way, it’s not a coincidence that Ukraine and “JB” are going down at the same time. The two organisms are symbionts: a matched pair of mutual parasites feeding off each other, swapping each other’s toxic exudations, and growing delirious on their glide path to a late winter crash.

The point of the war, you recall, is “to weaken Russia” (so said DoD Sec’y Lloyd Austin), even to bust it up into little geographic tatters to our country’s advantage — that is, to retain America’s dominance in global affairs, and especially the supremacy of the US dollar in global trade settlements.

To Make Sense of War

Israel Shamir

We have been struggling to understand the tragic events in the Ukraine, poring over a stream of current events to discover the master plan behind Putin’s strategy. We failed. Then we looked back to December last year. Suddenly it all clicked.

On December 15, 2021 Russia sent an ultimatum to the US and NATO. Two days later it was published, and the Russian Foreign Office invited the West to sign up and to agree to it, or at least begin discussing it. Not only was it not signed, it wasn’t even properly acknowledged. It was blatantly ignored, as though it were a demand from a teenager to an adult.

Pity, for it would have saved the world from the Ukraine War and Europeans from expensive bills, and the US from the terrible destruction and massive deaths of WWIII. Putin had made clear what he wanted, and it was a reasonable request. All that happened subsequently was brought about in order to achieve, at least, an adult discussion of these documents.

Putin sent the army to Kazakhstan, and in February to the Ukraine, and more recently his army has begun destroying Ukrainian infrastructure, which they had refrained from damaging before.

If Only Normality

Linh Dinh

[Siem Reap, 2/5/23] When Princess Bajrakitiyabha collapsed last December, I was in Chennai, India. Returning to Thailand two weeks later, I expected news of her death to dominate conversations.

The palace never admitted she had died, however, but was just in a coma, and Thais were urged to pray for her recovery. Everywhere across the kingdom, shrines with her portrait have mushroomed. You can even find them at schools and shopping malls.

As of 2/6/23, the princess is supposedly still alive, though unconscious, and if you’re inside Thailand, it’s literally a crime to challenge or question the king, so she isn’t dead until he says so.

Tyrants don’t just control lives, but information, and here, I’m also talking about the entire West, of course. When a Pfizer employee was recently taped boasting about Jewjabbing crimes, YouTube deleted the evidence, “This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s Terms of Service.”

With so much pushback against Covid lies from the Jewjacked media, YouTube disabled its dislike button 16 months ago. YouTube’s CEO, Susan Wojcicki, is Jewish. Did I just commit a hate crime? Is Jewish a hateful word? It is, apparently.

Ramstein and the forgotten lessons of the past

Alexander Gusev,
Doctor of political sciences, professor

On January 20 this year, representatives of fifty countries of the anti-Russian coalition gathered at the US airbase in Ramstein, Germany, to discuss a plan to begin full-scale military operations against our country. No doubt, the participants of the meeting could call themselves an "advisory group" or a "Western partnership"; the essence of the decisions they made did not change. In fact, the participants in this gathering unequivocally declared that the West was waging a full-scale war against Russia.[1]

Moreover, immediately after the "Ramstein meetings" the head of the NATO Military Committee, Admiral Rob Bauer, confirmed that the alliance was ready for a direct confrontation with Russia, as its strategic goals extended beyond Ukraine. It is, therefore, no coincidence that Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, following talks with South African Foreign Minister Naledi Pandor on 23 January this year, noted that the Ramstein meeting showed that the West is waging an almost real war against Russia, which it has long prepared, seeking to destroy everything Russian — from language to culture — in Ukraine.[2]
