nothing new......

A general that Vladimir Putin recently hailed the ‘Hero of Russia’ has reportedly been removed from his position as Moscow’s invasion faces embarrassing setbacks.

Britain’s Ministry of Defence said General Alexander Lapin had been sacked from the role, the fourth senior commander to have been pushed aside since the war began.

It follows a pattern of senior military officials copping the blame for Mr Putin’s floundering war to “deflect blame from Russian senior leadership at home”.

“If confirmed, this follows a series of dismissals of senior Russian military commanders since the onset of the invasion in February,” the UK intelligence said.

“Lapin has been widely criticised for poor performance on the battlefield in Ukraine.

boomgate from the new york times......

I have a perverse taste for books and newspaper pieces titled “The Untold Story of Whatever It Is That Hasn’t Been Told.” The cliché on the front cover or in the headline is among my favorites. And then what follows: It has been told before, or it is not worth telling, or—often the case—it is conjured nonsense, a mass of dots that don’t connect, which is why nobody previously thought to tell it. 

The Untold Story of Why Leaves Fall in Autumn. The Untold Story of George W. Bush’s Subtle Mind. The Untold Story of Antony Blinken’s Brilliant Diplomacy.  Yes, readers, I’ve read ’em all.

the last thing the US want: people free from the rules-based shitty US order......

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s keynote address at the Valdai Club last Thursday appears to have put Russia on a collision course with the U.S.-led “Rules Based International Order” (RBIO).

The Biden administration two weeks earlier released its 2022 National Security Strategy(NSS), a full-throated defense of the RBIO which all-but declares war on “autocrats” who are “working overtime to undermine democracy.”

the soros tragic/comical mystery and the demise of the US empire....

MANY PEOPLE DO NOT LIKE SOROS…. AND SOME ARE ENAMOURED WITH HIM… WHAT MAKES US TICK ABOUT HIM? WHAT MAKES SOROS TICK? 

 

PEOPLE WHO LOVE HIM THINK HE IS A “LEFTY” ALTRUISTIC PHILANTHROPIST, GIVING MANY BILLIONS TO CHARITABLE CAUSE — ESPECIALLY IN THE AREA OF INFORMATION AND TRUTH. WE CAN’T FAULT THIS GENEROSITY… EXCEPT IT IS NEFARIOUS. IT IS TARGETED. IT IS LOADED. AND NOT THE TRUTH… IT IS DEVOID OF REALITY OTHER THAN THE REALITY AS SOROS SEES IT…

 

SO WHY MENTION HIM NOW — AGAIN? SOME PEOPLE THINK HE IS "DESTROYING AMERICA"...

 

always involved in someone else's pissy boer wars....

How do we explain that half the Australian community thinks we should go to war with China? After twenty years of conflict in the Middle East, will our addiction to war and our insouciance about its consequences finally catch up with us in an American war over Taiwan?

‘Paddy the Irishman’ was one of the stock characters who appeared in the cartoons in the Sydney Bulletin in the early C20th. In one of the cartoons Paddy addressed the readers but behind him was a sketch of what appeared to be a brawl. He asked:’ Is this a private fight or can anyone join in’? I was reminded of the cartoon after reading two news items published last week.

of economy, scams, price of fish and growth.....

ECONOMY ISN'T A SCIENCE. THIS HAS BEEN OUR CLAIM FOR A LONG TIME AND WE STICK BY IT. ECONOMY IS AN ART FORM IN WHICH THE PAINTERS/SCULPTORS/MUSICIANS CARVE FIGURES IN SAND, SING BALANCE SHEETS INTO THE WIND AND PAINT CRAYOLA ILLUSIONS OF BEARS AND BULLS FOR PROFIT. SOME "ECONOMISTS" THOUGH WANT MORE PRECISION IN THE SYSTEM — AND THIS LEADS TO STYLES OF ARTISTIC EXPRESSION RATHER THAN CERTITUDE... HERE THE MISES INSTITUTE BATTLES THE PRICES AT THE PUMPS AS IF IT WAS A RELIGIOUS CREDO...

unthinking confucius....

British Minister for Security Tom Tugendhat, a member of the newly formed Rishi Sunak cabinet, recently responded to a question from anti-China MP Iain Duncan Smith regarding the future of China’s Confucius Institutes (CI) in the UK. Smith, the biggest cheerleader of the anti-China agenda in the UK, has a reputation for asking such opportunistic, inflammatory questions in a bid to generate headlines and put items on the agenda.

a disunited UN during halloween.......

The General Assembly of the United Nations ended its annual session only a week ago in New York. There were more heads of state and government than ever before. Everybody gave a speech (for most delegations limited to 15 minutes). The traffic in New York was heavy for a whole week, as the delegates shuttled between the hotels and restaurants.

So the UN seems pretty alive. But on the biggest issue on the planet, a war which has entered its eighth month between two countries with a combined population of 200 million—one of which possesses the largest arsenal of nuclear weapons and threatens to use it*—the UN has been a bystander.

the flow of history explained......

Russian President Vladimir Putin honored the country's National Unity Day by meeting with historians and dignitaries – including leaders of religious communities – and discussing the role of history in protecting national sovereignty, identity, and culture. Here are some key points from his speech and the subsequent discussion.

the evil senile fascist joseph biden has made the trump-clown palatable again....

It now seems probable that former President Donald Trump will announce his candidacy for president of the United States in 2024, perhaps as soon as after the 2022 elections are completed.

Back in 2016 I was a staunch Trump supporter. And I would still support “the Donald” if he ran again in 2024, but for different reasons.

Let me explain.

beyond the pale in israeli politics only a few years ago.....

Netanyahu and far right allies win Israeli election

 

Former PM Benjamin Netanyahu set to form a government and seal a dramatic return to power, as Lapid concedes defeat.

A coalition led by the right-wing former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has won a majority of seats in the 120-seat parliament, or Knesset, allowing the controversial figure to return to power.

another meddling in another country's affairs.......

US President Joe Biden’s comments about freeing Iran were not meant as a statement of policy but an expression of solidarity with anti-government protesters, White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters on Friday. Biden’s off-the-cuff remark at a Democrat fundraiser in California the evening before has already drawn condemnations from Tehran.

“Don’t worry, we’re going to free Iran. They’re going to free themselves pretty soon,” Biden told those attending a party fundraiser at MiraCosta College near San Diego on Thursday.

He was “expressing our solidarity with the protesters,” Kirby told the White House press corps the following day, adding that any change of government in Tehran “has to be up to the people of Iran."

no pain, no grain....

So, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan picks up the phone and calls his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin: let’s talk about the “grain deal.” Putin, cool, calm and collected, explains the facts to the Sultan:

First, the reason why Russia withdrew from the export grain deal.

Second, how Moscow seeks a serious investigation into the – terrorist – attack on the Black Sea fleet, which for all practical purposes seems to have violated the deal.

and twitter becomes the standard of fresh real news......

 

Establishment panic about Elon Musk’s changes to Twitter means he’s doing something right

 

The only ones outraged about Twitter’s new owner are the ones afraid of free speech getting in the way of their authority

 

Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover has heads rolling. But it is funny how the only people who seem to be upset are those who vehemently do everything in their power to shut down any peon who dares to air wrong-think on the platform.
