Ides of March

Sat, Mar 8, 2014 - 5:21am

Pretty much everyone here knows (or should know) the story of Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, and the sealed train provided by the German government that brought him to St. Petersburg. Whether it truly WAS the government itself, or industrialist and bankers matters little – the Soviet propaganda films did not lie about the fact that the shot from the Aurora truly WAS heard around the world.

Thus began a new era in history with the birth, metastasis and further mutation of the original proletarian dictatorship – and continues to this day.

However, here’s a fun little fact I am pretty sure most people don’t know:

The Hungarian Soviet Republic, the second Communist government in Europe after Russia itself, was established on 21 March 1919. […]

In the Russian Civil War in 1918, Kun fought for the Bolsheviks. During this time, he first started to make detailed plans for exporting Communism to Hungary. In November 1918, with at least several hundred other Hungarian Communists and with a lot of money given to him by the Soviets, he returned to Hungary. […]

In Hungary, the resources of a shattered government were further strained by refugees from lands lost to the Allies during the war and that were due to be lost permanently under the projected Treaty of Trianon. Rampant inflation, housing shortages, mass unemployment, food shortages and coal shortages further weakened the economy and stimulated widespread protests. In October 1918, the so-called "Aster Revolution" established a shaky democratic coalition government. Kun founded the Hungarian Communist Party in Budapest on 4 November 1918. […]

Such was the desperation for them to have Kun receive promised Soviet support that it was Kun, a captive, who dictated the terms to his captors. This was despite the Red Army's full involvement in the Russian Civil War and the unlikelihood that it could be of any direct military assistance.[…]

The first act of the new government was to nationalize virtually all private property in Hungary. Contrary to advice from Lenin and the Bolsheviks, Béla Kun's government refused to redistribute land to the peasantry, thereby alienating the majority of their support in Hungary. Instead, Kun declared that all land was to be converted into collective farms and former estate owners, managers andbailiffs were to be retained as the new collective farm managers. […]

The Soviets promised to invade Romania and link up with Kun and were on verge of doing so, but military reversals suffered by the Red Army in Ukraine stopped the invasion of Romania before it began. The Romanians then invaded Hungary, took Budapest, crushed the Communists and on 1 August 1919 forced them to hand over power to the Social Democratic party. -- Wiki

The whole thing lasted only 133 days. Yet during that time the government was able to confiscate all of the citizens’ land, a good portion of their food and livestock, and summarily executed around 600 people. Romanians eventually withdrew to the newly painted international border demarcation line (which gave them territory equallying ca. ½ the of what remained of the country after the Trianon borders were established. They took all the copper, silver and gold mines, too…). The icing on the cake: after the Communists were thrown out of office and into jail, this joker was installed as the head of a ‘constitutional’ monarchy:

“His Serene Highness the Regent of the Kingdom of Hungary”

Lessons to be learned:

Never get involved in a land war in Asia

One must always beware revolutionaries who come bearing moneybags denominated in foreign currency, bringing the good tidings of a superpower, whether neighboring or far, far away. One possible exception might be all the Poles and Hungarians who joined the American Revolution (having failed to secure their own countries’ independence, though not for lack of trying) with French financial and logistical support.

Just because a revolution/coup/putsch/defenestration/stabbing gets rid of a despised, despotic, exploitative, murderous ruler does not mean the next guy will be any better. Or the guy after that…

Military assistance promised by a superpower that is actually DELIVERED to the country requesting it on the basis of some ‘treaty’ or ‘pact’ has caused a few problems in the last century or so… world wars being among them. But even when the consequences are not quite so dire, the 'aided' country most often gets invaded and occupied -- by the liberator, or by the aggressor because the liberator fails to show...

And some pacts are made for the explicit purpose of allowing one side (or both) time to prepare to ambush the other. The namesake of the German-Soviet agreement was especially popular in some parts of Northern Europe:

“The name "Molotov cocktail" was coined by the Finns during the Winter War.[1] The name is an insulting reference to Soviet foreign minister Vyacheslav Molotov, who was responsible for the setting of "spheres of interest" in Eastern Europe under the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact in August 1939. […] When the hand-held bottle firebomb was developed to attack Soviet tanks, the Finns called it the "Molotov cocktail", as "a drink to go with the food".

Soviet cluster bomb ironically called a "Molotov bread basket". The "Molotov cocktail" was the Finns' response – "a drink to go with the food".

As we continue to watch the developments out of Ukraine over the next days and weeks, let’s try not to forget that just because one spot on the stage is illuminated, the rest of the stage does not go away. The recent events aimed at China MIGHT be coincidental. (Mass stabbing, and Malaysian airliner missing) If one were to believe in coincidences.

Stay safe, enjoy the weekend, and keep stacking. Our times keep getting more and more interesting by the day.

@jml-2012 re: Obama's plan to destroy America . . .

I can't say I disagree with you. Or Fix.

I did not see the movie, but heard about it, and now your summary.

While Obama is the worst president we have ever had in many respects, especially relating to the rule of law becoming a playtoy in his hands, he can still be stopped, I hope.

It is somewhat surprising to me that a military coup has not already been undertaken. Even though he has cleansed the top brass deeply, especially the navy, it seems to me that the vast majority of the military despises him.

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the U.S. is to be brought low. Our privileged lifestyle cannot be duplicated for a billion Chinese, a billion Indians, and another billion East Asians. So, the lifestyle we have must be removed, at least for the bottom 85-95%.

This is being done a little bit each day. The path is being cleared. Everyone must be brought down, relieved of their assets (or the value of them), or more if necessary.

We may come to a tipping point, and armed revolution ensues. If not, we are doomed, because they see the Georgia Guidestones not as a guide, but as a manifesto, I fear.

There will soon be another false flag, after which Obama will make the 1000th Executive Order to dismantle second amendment rights. The Russian troops will be sent out to carry out the order, with no mercy. That is how I think it plays out. An armed citizenry poses too much threat to their plans.

Coming closer to

Coming closer to home:

Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry warned Russia on Saturday that any steps to annex Ukraine's Crimea regionwould close the door to diplomacy, a U.S. State Department official said.

Kerry's latest telephone call with his Russian counterpart, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, came as the standoff between occupying Russian forces and besieged Ukrainian troops intensified in Crimea.
Obama convened a conference call with Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite, Latvian President Andris Berzins, and Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves. It was the first time he has spoken with the leaders of the three Baltic states about the crisis.

The countries are NATO members with strong economic ties to Russia, and have expressed nervousness about President Vladimir Putin's actions in Ukraine.

"The president reaffirmed the United States' unwavering commitment to our collective defense commitments under the North Atlantic Treaty and our enduring support for the security and democracy of our Baltic allies," the White House said in a statement.

The United States has moved to reassure its NATO allies, sending six more F-15 fighter jets this week to NATO's policing mission over the Baltic states. The jets are on call to respond to any violations of Baltic airspace.

In this case i would hope that shit in Baltics will happen some time later...

When Hitler annexed Austria he took some time before moving into Czechoslovakia. Not much though.

Interestingly Hitler announced Anschluss on March 12th, 1938; Referendum that confirmed it was held on April 10th, 1938 with 99,7% Austrians "supporting" Anschluss.

What is different ( is it? ) is that in this case West moved first vs. Putin. I can not imagine what face saving solution will be offered for Putin to back off bigger claims, but such solution will appear I guess. Could be quite complex, but one that will give chance for Putin to declare victory over the West domestically. He can not save face if he does not get something in exchange of losing Western Ukraine. So I think as well that split of Ukraine is inevitable, as I have been thinking all along.

So far it seems the bargaining for the position before the deal is going on with increasing brinkmanship. I hope the intelligence the brinkmanship is based on is somewhat accurate.

USA is internally now divided between bankers and Rothschilds ( who want to expand debt but also leave USA for China soon, moving the capital and reserve currency with them, as well as themselves as they do every 100 years in debt expansion cycle to avoid punishment) and USA as state /people/Soros? who do not wish to be left without the imperial power of reserve currency and control over WORLD money supply.

I think that internal struggle is getting more acidic with military and some other power centers starting to oppose banker run civil government, and influencing it. USA is a bit in no mans land nowadays of how to exist next as banking prepares to exit it, manufacturing is already taken away, and the reality of such fate starts to dawn on more and more people.

Putin's autocratic and militant values are much better suited for the reversal of debt expansion cycle then USA democratic ones. For the USA, the best would be to turn autocratic fast and give military more power. I think that is going to happen, but not without fight.

In the meantime, USA foreign politics is confusing as it aims to move both as former banking nation with need to expand democracy (i.e. debt) and autocracy to save money , reduce debt and prepare to fight for position.

WWIII is not coming now; but if the USA and China moves to opposite autocratic poles as designed by bankers, then Europe-Russian alliance is the only form Europe can survive and keep buffer Russia between themselves and expansionist China as it will be forced to once the debt driven growth of China will be terminated ( soon). And then preparations for USA -China war will be on. That would be either the last war ever and end of humanity together with natural disasters, or new religion will appear that will ensure some alternative NEW parallel course of action and survival of some amount of humans.

The time scope for these events is 10-40 years. The peak of debt expansion cycle with its final drive to peak - as it gets even faster and time compressing- produces very big sense of urgency where so far complacency reigned; the bankers will try to develop earth engineering as top priority to fool nature; the new religion will realign humans with nature; these two forces will clash fundamentally, using perhaps totally new weapons that will threaten the existence of Universe itself.

Short term, let us see when EU and Russia will realize they need each other more than EU needs bankers.

Bankers are a toast worldwide; politics will reflect this soon; but in the meantime a lot will happen, since right now bankers are at the top of their power. And probably will remain as long as money supply manipulations will still be possible- which is not long, but 10 years easily.They have the ability to take all humanity of the face of the Earth with them as they would love to take their money in the grave, even though they do not believe in afterlife; or to purchase the entry into Paradise

"Did somebody say de-escalation?"

Ukraine's Military Mobilizes, Prepares For Combat: Trucks, APCs, SAMs, Tanks Rolling Out

Did somebody say de-escalation?

Earlier today, photos were distributed showing the latest military convoy reinforcements heading into the Crimea, accompanies by a Police car demonstrating Moscow license plate numbers, most likely providing further support to the pro-Russian forces in the peninsula.

Supposedly the trucks are carrying troops to reinforces the members of the new Crimean army, pictured below:

While at the same time along the makeshift border between Crimea and the mainland, the Pro-Russian forces are putting down minefields.

However, the Ukrainians, having already been mobilized for over a week, finally appear set to seize back the offensive:

So where again are all those pundits who were so eager to explain away the Ukraine confrontation as one that will promptly be forgotten, and is by now most certainly priced in?

Dear JML-2012

The Great Experiment has long been the largest and strongest impediment to the impending rise of the seven-headed, ten-horned beast, after which the entire world will wonder.

The minds and spirits of the people, the economic power, and the military power of the United States had to be disanulled. We are seeing the culmination of a long strategy played out over many years. Ann Barnhardt sees it, Mr. Fix sees it, others see it, now you are seeing it. Many people see that the minds and the wills of people are being neutralized, but although most see how, I think very few understand why.

Although we see events unfolding with seeming remarkable rapidity, always keep in mind that this is far too far along to be rushed, it will take as much time as needed; "they" won't risk what they've accomplished.

(Sorry about this post being on Main Street, better suited to Dots.)

I just typed up a response and accidently lost it all so here's the condensed version. I didn't just wake up, I've been paying attention to what's going on for quite a while now, but this particular nugget is new and for me its huge. I've heard Obama labeled a Marxist before of course, but I didn't know to what extent it surrounded and motivated his entire life. Plus these days everyone is called either a communist, a fascist, or hitler by the other side! In my mind, this story ties in everything else that's going on into one cohesive narrative. We're fucked. As the saying goes, you may not be interested in war, but war is sure as hell interested in you.

Speaking of that and tying into the other thread topic, I picked up a nice stack of cheap but decent quality Russian ammo - Silver Bear .223 and Brown Bear 9mm - just yesterday at $5.79 per 20/box of .223 and $10.49 per 50/box of 9mm. That's a steal these days. I don't expect it last, so get it now while you can boys and girls.

While I do believe commodity market's are subject to manipulation (and always have been by the way as manipulation is an aspect of human nature since Jesus Christ, the Catholic church and Ghengis Khan, probably even before then). do we win?

Call me an isolationist if you want but in North America we don't need these people. We produce enough goods and services in our own backyard to feed our people and live between two rather large oceans far far away from the ancient rivalries. Yet, we insist on meddling. My interest, besides an innate curiosity of how other people live, is how do these events impact the cost and price of what I am interested in buying and selling. Is that free market enough for all you libertarians?

Keep your focus turdites and your guns in your holsters, Barack Obama is not an evil person, he is just incorrect in his views.

We have to find a balance between facing up to the realities of a central banking system gone wild, versus governments plotting the interment or execution of its citizens in a NWO takeover. I will not live in fear. But the CBs really are destroying our current economic system. I don't want to rule out the latter, but I am certain of the former and know that TPTB are orchestrating the economic troubles, unless they are simply incompetent--which is a real possibility. Either way, the result is similar.

In the case of the Roman siege of Jerusalem in 70 AD, Jesus told his disciple to flee to the hills. The same advice is appropriate today. Living in the remote regions of our respective nations will probably offer the better chance at survival and a life worth living--whatever that will be. Isolation may be the best survival strategy we have.

You cannot create true wealth out of thin air. At some point the ability of governments to oppress the citizens is limited by their resources. Armies must be fed. Tracking down every citizen and enforcing compliance is expensive. I just do not see the economics of the future having the ability to fund massive oppression. Rather, the media will be used to scare people into compliance; people will be herded into cities where they can be watched and outliers punished; but those who live quiet lives where they are not a threat will be left alone--all due to the cost of 100% enforcement.

TPTB have their limitations and propaganda is always the most effective means of gaining compliance.

And take my comments for what they are worth since I sipped my Saturday afternoon beer as I wrote. I better get into the back yard and do something useful, like setting up the storage shed we just acquired.

That's interesting about Auroracoin.

I have a couple of thoughts:

1. If I knew that the supply of gold or silver were going to massively increase in a couple of weeks, I would be dumping it to buy it back cheaper later because the value is about to be diluted. What are the Icelanders going to do with them once they receive them for free? Trade them for items of value. Both price bearish.

2. If Auroracoin is based on Litecoin, doesn't that make it a derivative like SLV is to Silver? I might look into buying some Litecoin about 5 April or so.

Most people are pawns in the game of life. Being a victim of collectivist conditioning is the easy way to find comfort. The people in control have set things up to exploit an easy resource. Real dignity resides in having the strength to be an individual.

Dr. J I posted this in the vault a couple days ago regarding CB

I'm Sure Its Just Coincidence...

In The Year 2000 There Were 8 Countries Without A Central Bank:

They were Afghanistan, Russia, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea and Iran.

In 2011 the only 3 countries left without a Central Bank are:

Cuba, North Korea and Iran.

There are about 193 countries of the world. Isn't it interesting the US Military, under direction of the President, not Congress, has helped set 3 (of the 5 countries with new central banks), free from oppression? I'm sure its just coincidence 3 are from the 8 without central banks.

By the way, what happened to the wealth of Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan? The countries' gold and cash on hand?
