goody two shoes putin…….

Is Putin’s Goody Two Shoes Behavior with his “Limited Operation” Blowing up in his face?

The Kremlin’s attempt to fight a war with minimal resources and no commitment to disrupt the government and functioning of Western Ukraine and the weapons flowing in from the US and NATO now brings the humiliation of having Ukrainian troops break through Russia’s thinly defended line in the Kharkov region of Eastern Ukraine.

doing an inside poop for the empire….

Today the United States, because of the growing global criticism of White House policies, is desperately seeking to maintain its leadership through destructive actions against not only its adversaries, but also allies in all directions. This is evidenced both by the numerous armed conflicts and aggressions around the world instigated by the United States and by the sanctions imposed on states that do not wish to become silent puppets of Washington, in violation of generally accepted norms and without the approval of international organizations.

The position of other countries, including US allies, on the political, economic and military dictate is of no interest to Washington at all, nor are their losses from the same White House-initiated sanctions.

on a winning streak….

Russia is no longer fighting a Ukrainian army equipped by NATO, but a NATO army manned by Ukrainians. Yet, Russia still holds the upper hand despite its Kharkiv setback.

The Ukrainian army began a major offensive against Russian forces deployed in the region north of the southern city of Kherson on Sept. 1. Ten days later, the Ukrainians had expanded the scope and the scale of its offensive operations to include the region around the northern city of Kharkov.

Henry VII (Welsh: Harri Tudur; 28 January 1457 – 21 April 1509) was King of England and Lord of Ireland from his seizure of the crown on 22 August 1485 until his death in 1509. He was the first monarch of the House of Tudor.[a]

the cash cow of obsolescence…...

 

Congress has spoken when it comes to next year’s Pentagon budget and the results, if they weren’t so in line with past practices, should astonish us all. The House of Representatives voted to add $37 billion and the Senate $45 billion to the administration’s already humongous request for “national defense,” a staggering figure that includes both the Pentagon budget and work on nuclear weapons at the Department of Energy.

in case of fire, go to the life rafts….

The government is conducting a Defence Strategic Review: “an independently-led review that will consider Defence’s force posture and force structure.” The terms of reference are narrow. What is needed, what this Defence Review may not be able to do, is a review of Australia’s overall strategic circumstances. Courage is needed to choose between allocation of resources to what makes Australia strong and healthy as a nation on the one hand, and deeper spending on dangerous pointy toys on the other.

a "no return" that could mean "yes, I'm back"…….

Queen of Chaos: Her record, and her own words, show us exactly what we can expect from a Hillary Clinton presidency, write Jeremy Kuzmarov and Steve Brown.

On March 8, U.S. News & World Report ran a story titled “Hillary Clinton Says No to 2024 Presidential Bid.” But do not be misled by the “No.” The article was simply a shot across the public’s bow — a wake-up call intended to insert the idea into everyone’s mind of Hillary running.

Her “No” seems nothing more than the classic — and expected — response that politicians always make to the media when they are testing the waters.

is the UK on the ropes or is liz going to save the titanic?…...

As energy bills soar, Britain’s new prime minister, Liz Truss, proposes short-term measures to prop up suppliers with public money. But we won't be “back to normal” anytime soon — and it’s working-class Britons who will suffer.

Britain’s constitutional crisis has now lasted twelve years. Were we a weaker country, a collapse of stable governance on this scale would have triggered much debate over whether foreign intervention could fix our institutions, or whether we were simply beyond help.

a word from the downer: "we did not know it was coming…"

Why is there such a sense of grief at the death of the Queen – not just in Great Britain but also throughout the Commonwealth? And is there anything we have learnt over the past few days from the reactions to the monarch’s death?

Let’s look at why we are so grief-stricken. During her 70 years on the throne, there have been 16 Australian prime ministers, 15 British prime ministers, 14 American presidents, 10 French presidents and seven Popes. The Vietnam war came and went, the Cold War raged, the Soviet Union collapsed, and the Arab Spring turned to winter. A lot happened!

in the DNA of zionism…..

ISAIAH hoped it would be different.

The day would come, he prophesied, when Israel could beat its swords into plowshares and its spears into pruning hooks. True, Israel today produces more than its share of plows and pruning hooks - but it produces even more swords and spears in the form of tanks, fighter jets, rockets, machine guns and military advisers.

fighting itself…...

Whatever your feelings about former President Trump, there are reasons to be skeptical when government officials say it was necessary to raid his Florida home to recover classified documents that threatened national security.

in the shadow of a colonial past…...

ASTONISHING AS IT IS, MOST PEOPLE DON’T CARE ABOUT THE TRUTH NOR REALITY. THEY ARE COMFORTABLE IN THE ARMS OF PROPAGANDA. OR THEY THINK THAT THE INFORMATION THEY GET IS THE TRUTH ABOUT REALITY. IT’S NOT.

AMERICAN BAMBOOZLE ITS OWN PEOPLE AND MANY NATIONS ON THIS PLANET WITH THE HOPEFUL/BOOM-BANG DELUSIONS OF HOLLYWOOD AND POLITICAL EXCEPTIONALISM. 

THE UK HAS DELUDED ITSELF AND THE NATIONS OF THE COMMONWEALTH FOR MANY YEARS — WITH THE POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE ROYALS, AND THEIR TRADITIONAL PAGEANTRY. 

THE CHURCHES SELL THE DELUSION OF A PLACE FOR YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS IN ANOTHER WORLD CALLED PARADISE. 

NONE OF THESE CONFIDENCE TRICKS MAKES SENSE AND REALITY IS ONLY SEEN FROM INSIDE A FISH BOWL. THEIR FISH BOWL.

 

debt, inflation and the "economy"……...

BEN NORTON: Hey everyone, this is Ben Norton of Multipolarista. I’m joined by one of my favorite guests today, the brilliant economist Michael Hudson. And there are a lot of things that we plan on talking about today.

We’re going to address the partial student debt relief in the United States, and the problem of debt, which is something that Professor Hudson has written a lot about.

the nasty dangerous american eagle...

Moscow, officials from the Donbass republics, and even the regional administrations of Ukrainian territories liberated by Russian forces have repeatedly charged Kiev with the use of its Western-sourced artillery systems to indiscriminately target civilian infrastructure.

The Pentagon has committed $92 million to replenish the US military’s stocks of the M982 Excalibur, a 155mm artillery shell with an effective firing range of up to 57 km, Bloomberg has reported, citing a DoD accounting document.

the maestro of the dangerous bullshit…...

Swiss MP and former editor-in-chief of the Tribune de Genève Guy Mettan paints a portrait of the acrobat who plays the role of president of Ukraine. He shows how this public entertainer became an ally of the Banderists and set up a dictatorship for them.

“Héros de la liberté”, “Hero of Our Time”, “Der Unbeugsame”, “The Unlikely Ukrainian Hero Who Defied Putin and United the World”, “Zelensky, Ukraine in blood”: the Western media and leaders no longer know what superlatives to use to sing the praises of the Ukrainian president, so fascinated are they by the “amazing resilience” of the comedian miraculously transformed into a “warlord” and “saviour of democracy”.
