Some Objectivity From Batchelor and Cohen

Wed, Nov 13, 2019 - 4:50pm

With the start of the impeachment hearings and the attendant rumors, allegations and innuendo, we're happy to post last evening's "Cold War Update" from John Batchelor and Professor Stephen F. Cohen. Though they've been recording these hours for nearly six years now, their content remains vital as one of the few fair and objective bits of geo-political analysis you're likely to find.

Thanks again to John and Steve for their continuing efforts. Please be sure to listen.

Another road to war...

Hi guys,

Just thought I'd check in with some of the latest current events, and set the record straight on some blatant propaganda.

When I heard that a standup comedian had become the president of Ukraine, I quite vividly remember joking that it wasn't any different then electing a TV reality show actor.

I knew that the United States had successfully installed another CIA puppet as the ruler of another nation.

Now, some of you may remember how I had mistakenly predicted that our black CIA puppet would never leave, but who would've thought they would have just painted him orange?

As far as the policy changes, sending $400 million worth of new toys to kill people and break things to such an obvious CIA stooge, would have been too obvious, so the black puppet pretended to want nothing to do with it.

Now that the CIA has successfully orchestrated a "free and fair" election, and seems to have established at least the veneer of a degree of separation, those who are employed by "the chosen ones", can now arm the crap out of one of their assets, and continue their war against humanity.

The comedian has zero chance of draining his swamp, just as the orange reality show actor also employed by "the chosen ones" will never drain the swamp either.

It's not in the script.

The script has always been global domination through deception, as it was written many thousands of years ago when the greatest superstition of all time was foisted upon humanity, and that is the sheer stupidity in believing in the legitimacy of an authority figure.

Just like the megalomaniacal psychopathic predatory and genocidal imaginary sky daddy, we have been taught that our governments somehow have our best interest at heart.

Needless to say, I call bullshit on that.

The blueprint for perpetual war was cast when the "Chosen ones", were "given" "the promised land", and told that they had permission to eradicate the inhabitants.

Most people have always been subjected to a genocidal tyrant ever since,

And those that simply don't want to bow to some self anointed authority figure, are simply eradicated.

Same as it always was, and until people wake up, same as it will always be.

What we appear to have here, is a singular reasonably well armed opponent to this historically genocidal agenda, who simply doesn't seem to want to go to war, and isn't afraid to defend the territory he has been chosen to defend.

By all appearances, Vladimir Putin may very well be one of the very few rulers in recorded history who actually gives a shit about the people he governs over.

Although theoretically impossible, since absolute power corrupts absolutely, Vladimir Putin is at least creating the appearance of being an exception to the rule.

This is a war of archetypes, where you always need a "good guy", and a "bad guy", so it is highly likely that everyone is just playing their part.

Vladimír good, Orange man bad. That's the script.

In America, the script is slightly different for domestic consumption, an orange man plays the good guy, the Democrats play scumbags.

Enjoy the show.

Since considering the welfare of the people you rule over is expressly forbidden by the "chosen ones", finding a way to wage war against Russia, and pretending that "he started it", is their current obsession.

The "Chosen ones", have no problem with their orange puppet, he does exactly what he is told.

The United States lost its sovereignty to the New World order under Pres. Lincoln, it's just wasn't publicized.

United States has not been a "constitutional republic" since the Civil War.

It is a corporation, owned and operated for the profit of the richest families on the planet. Their lineage predates recorded history, which is also a farce.

History is always written by the victors, and, the good guys rarely win.

Abraham Lincoln didn't free the slaves, he enslaved everyone to our countries new owners.

The orange puppet is only there to ensure that it stays that way, as he pretends to do battle with an imaginary "deep state".

The "deep state" is not your problem, the problem is that the overwhelming majority of people still think their vote counts for something, when in actuality, it has no meaning whatsoever, other then to give the psychopathic plutocrats who rule over us the illusion that they have the "consent of the governed".

They've even created the illusion that a standup comedian has "the consent of the governed".

What a joke.

The made-for-TV show impeachment hearings are nothing more than theatre,

If the CIA for any reason whatsoever wanted a different president, they would have one. The orange man is the puppet of choice.

For that reason, he's in no danger whatsoever.

As long as human beings can be convinced that they must bow to the authority of a megalomaniacal, predatory and parasitic, psychopathic and genocidal overlord,

We are screwed.

Fuck government,

Rule yourself.

Uncaused Cause?

Well, I also have a view, an opinion! It is like having a large box of puzzle pieces. We sit around a table, lots of posters, all wanting to fit the pieces together. Some of the pieces fit well, some are pieces of folly, and some pieces are simply missing. We think our formula, for fitting the picture together, is the truth and our camp has the real pattern. In time, the 99% will finally realize that they have been herded into a box canyon, their pieces were supplied by the enemy, and they were blind from the beginning. Yep, jmo Jim
