Russophobia with JBSFC

Wed, Mar 8, 2017 - 9:43am

John and Steve returned last evening with an excellent, comprehensive rundown of the outrageous rhetoric emanating from Washington and New York in the relentless propaganda and cold war against Russia.

As has been the case for the past three years, this week's discussion is essential listening. Not only is it a presentation of actual facts, Professor Cohen is able to provide history and context at a level you won't find anywhere else in the western media.

Please be sure to listen this week and every week as The New Cold War seemingly grows hotter by the day.

Please be sure to listen

The entire program is worth your time but be certain to listen to the third segment. Did you know that US forces are preparing to attack Raqqa?...in Syria!!! What happened to the promise of "no boots on the ground"?

What a mess

Think of all the other quagmires created by the military-industrial complex. Does this look familiar?

And be sure to keep in mind that "Sunni insurgents" is just a deceptive term for "Al-Qaeda".

We Need To Start Heading Up. So I'm Covering All Bases. Keep Stacking

That's a good question

I think we've got Pol Pot, Mao and Hitler beat. May still be in 2nd place behind Stalin, though.

Of course, the argument could be made that the US has made it to #2 because it was responding to #1, 3, 4 and 5....Which is a bit of a Chicken vs Egg deal.

My "relentless Propaganda"!

If everything happens in the M.E. or even right here in Washington State, we are in trouble. Locally, we are informed of:

> Fukushima radiation on our coast and in the air.

> The Pacific Ocean fish, glowing in the dark from radiation.

> Dont eat the Pacific tuna or die from mercury posioning.

> Do not swim in the salt water if you want to avoid cancer.

> The "Big One" is due along the local fault line. Sleep with an inner tube or drown.

>Mt. Rainier (right out of my office window at home) is over due to erupt just like Mt. Saint Helens.

>Hanford Nuclear plant is polluting the ground water and the air. Move but not down wind or down stream.

> If you stay, move to higher ground like Yelm, build an underground concrete home to protect your family from the lizard men coming out of Mt. Rainier.

> North Korea's president, Kim Jong-un, has targeted the west coast for a nuke job. We live next to JBLM military bases that would be his favorite target. Move time again?

> The Russians have their subs, just off the coast, aimed at JBLM and ready to fire away.

> Yes we even have chem trails, space aliens, flying saucers, and thousands of big foots.

Real estate sales are in a boom. Have we seen the prices of housing and rents in King County? People are pouring in by the thousands. They just must have not read the local "relentless propaganda" before they packed up their u-hauls. Jim

Re: What a mess

Actually the Kurds are not bad people and I know and worked with a lot them over the years. Their problem is they are people without a country spread out over about 4 nations that don't want them.

US Wars

The US and Russia -- 100 Years

William Blum

https://www.counterpunch.org/2017/03/08/the-united-states-and-the-russia...

Since the end of World War 2, the United States has:

Attempted to overthrow more than 50 foreign governments, most of which were democratically-elected.

Dropped bombs on the people of more than 30 countries.

Attempted to assassinate more than 50 foreign leaders.

Attempted to suppress a populist or nationalist movement in 20 countries.

+ Grossly interfered in democratic elections in at least 30 countries.

+ Though not as easy to quantify, has also led the world in torture; not only the torture performed directly by Americans upon foreigners, but providing torture equipment, torture manuals, lists of people to be tortured, and in-person guidance by American instructors.

We Need to Sober Up

Citizens of Turdville:

The populace of the United States is not going to wake up! They block the aisles of supermarkets, staring at their smartphones like they're watching porn. I got behind a guy last night at the local supermarket who fumbled for several minutes at the cashier, because he wouldn't put down his phone for 15 freakin' seconds so he could get out his credit card and pay for his purchases! Leaving the store, I almost got run over by a woman who was texting while driving in the parking lot. I am so tired of this shit!

All this supposition that people will magically wake up to what is going on is a pipe dream. Have the citizens of Venezuela awakened and taken back their country?  No!  I read where citizens in Caracas label their trash, so people looking for food know which bins to go through (without dumping out all of the bins in their frantic search for anything to eat).

As P.T. Barnum reminded us a century ago: "No one ever lost money underestimating the intelligence of the American people."

Collectively, we're screwed. Individually, we can mitigate the impact of what is to come, but I fear it will entail leaving the U. S., sadly. We had the most potential of any country to ever have been formed on this planet, but the greed of the banksters has brought us to our knees, and we have a lot further to fall. Nothing would please me more than to be wrong, but I have to be realistic here.

I could stop the average person on the street, and ask them "Is money important to you?" I would expect a "Yes" in most cases, and yet not one person in a thousand has spent one hour in their entire life studying money to try and understand it! They don't know what "money" actually is. They don't know how it is created. They haven't the faintest idea that the Federal Reserve is a banking cartel. They have not a clue that the Constitution expressly defines "money" as only gold and silver.

These same people can rattle off the name of every Kardashian, sing the lyrics of every Beyonce song, name every song on Adele's latest album, and can tell you the exact count of how many "friends" they have on Facebook. We are so screwed . . .

[Rant off]

Man, I feel better! I'm off to the LCS . . .

AGXIIK RickshawETF · Mar 8, 2017 - 2:27pm

Who's Bouncy? Adele? Weren't the Kardassians the bad guys

on Deep Space 9.

What's a smart phone?

Facebook---I really really hate FaCIAbook. Being on FB is like walking around with Mark Fuckerberg's finger up my ass, like some moron dropout from the Columbia School of Proctology. With friends like the ones you find on FB, who needs enemies

As for poor service, I live in a little bitty town called Incline Village. 90% of the businesses cater to the tourists and treat them like crap. 10% cater to the uber wealthy who live somewhere else. Consequentially the locals like us, numbering maybe 5,000-7,000 depending on what convenience store you're leaving, are treated like second class consumers.

That said, I'd say easily 95% of the American population is totally and completely captured by social media. People go completely and fully retard over social media. I wouldn't get on social media if you put a gun to my head.

No twitter, no instaputz, no FB, no linkdin, no pinheadterrorist or reddit.

I'm rafting up with a couple of Reno locals who are regulars here.

Person to person. Face to Face. Organic to Organic. That's the way I roll.

More bad news

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-russia-missiles-idUSKBN16F23V

Russia has deployed a land-based cruise missile that violates the "spirit and intent" of an arms control treaty and poses a threat to NATO, Vice Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff General Paul Selva said on Wednesday.

It was the first public accusation by the U.S. military of the deployment after reports said last month that Russia had secretly deployed the ground-launched SSC-8 cruise missile that Moscow has been developing and testing for several years, despite U.S. complaints that it violated sections of the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty.

"The system itself presents a risk to most of our facilities in Europe and we believe that the Russians have deliberately deployed it in order to pose a threat to NATO and to facilities within the NATO area of responsibility," Selva said during a House Armed Services Committee hearing. The Air Force general did not say whether the missile was capable of carrying a nuclear weapon.

What Do You Expect Russia To Do ?

Think of how many times throughout History Russia has been invaded ? And look at what NATO has been doing since the end of the Warsaw Pact. I read an article some months back on The Saker web site that they're is a word in Russian ( I can't recall what it was or how to say it ) that meant " they can't be trusted and there word is no good ". Why would they trust us ? Why would anybody trust us ( the West ). We've broken every single treaty and agreement since our inception.

If we don't stop the psychopaths in our Governments then Russia will. They're not going to sit around and take it in the rear like our citizens do every day. You meet force with force. If we continue to lie, cheat, and steal. We deserve what's coming.

Just keep an eye on the crazy guy in the pant suit. It has nothing to do with Russia or China. Honest. Have we ever lied to you before ?

RickshawETF · Mar 8, 2017 - 10:46pm

Re: Russia

There are only two things you need to know about Russia, before contemplating any "military action" against them.

1. Napoleon, when he invaded Russia in 1812, anticipated wintering over in Moscow as he launched his Russian campaign. He entered Russia, crossing the Neman River, with 680,000 troops. As he approached Moscow, he discovered that rather than allow Napoleon to occupy Moscow, the Russians burned their capital to the ground! Facing a tough winter, and having no shelter with Moscow razed, Napoleon retreated. When he re-crossed the Neman River, he had been reduced to 27,000 troops . . .

2. In World War II, the greatest defeat of the German Army was the Battle of Stalingrad, in Russia, where approximately 1 million Axis soldiers were either killed, wounded, or captured. And we want to bait them into a war?

Angry Chef · Mar 9, 2017 - 10:20am

RickshawETF...We Have To Bait Them Into a War

I read somewhere sometime ago that Russia was clearing trade with Iran, China and other countries using it's largest Commercial bank. Not it's Central bank but it's largest Commercial bank. This I think is a major linchpin behind all of this. It was the collapse of the ruble back in the early 90's that eventually took down the USSR. That and the suppression of Gold & Oil prices.

Sound familiar ?
