The war on Russia

Philip Giraldi points out that the primary source of the recent, inexplicable anti-Russian antipathy is the fact that the (((neocons))) finally lost control of its government after more than 80 years.
I have long believed that the core hatred of Russia comes from the neocons and is to a large extent tribal or, if you prefer, ethno-religious based. Why? Because if the neoconservatives were actually foreign policy realists there is no good reason to express any visceral dislike of Russia or its government. The allegations that Moscow interfered in the 2016 presidential election in the U.S. are clearly a sham, just as are the tales of the alleged Russian poisoning of the Skripals in Winchester England and, most recently, the claimed assassination of journalist Arkady Babchenko in Kiev which turned out to be a false flag. Even the most cursory examination of the past decade’s developments in Georgia and Ukraine reveal that Russia was reacting to legitimate major security threats engineered by the United States with a little help from Israel and others. Russia has not since the Cold War ended threatened the United States and its ability to re-acquire its former Eastern European satellites is a fantasy. So why the hatred?

In fact, the neocons got along quite well with Russia when they and their overwhelmingly Jewish oligarchs and international commodity thieves cum financier friends were looting the resources of the old Soviet Union under the hapless Boris Yeltsin during the 1990s. Alarms about the alleged Russian threat only re-emerged in the neocon dominated media and think tanks when old fashioned nationalist Vladimir Putin took office and made it a principal goal of his government to turn off the money tap.

With the looting stopped by Putin, the neocons and friends no longer had any reason to play nice, so they used their considerable resources in the media and within the halls of power in places like Washington, London and Paris to turn on Moscow. And they also might have perceived that there was a worse threat looming. The Putin government appeared to be resurrecting what the neocons might perceive as pogrom-plagued Holy Russia! Old churches razed by the Bolsheviks were being rebuilt and people were again going to mass and claiming belief in Jesus Christ. The former Red Square now hosts a Christmas market while the nearby tomb of Lenin is only open one morning in the week and attracts few visitors.
This should give considerable hope to Americans, as AIPAC's influence over the three branches of the US government is considerably more tenuous than the Bolsheviks' historical control of the Russian government was.

Fortunately, the responsibility of actually governing their own land is fundamentally transforming the Israeli perspective and making smart men like Netanyahu more aware of the intrinsic dangers of attempting to interfere in the internal affairs of other nations. That's why he is openly encouraging the Diasporans to come home rather than act as a fifth column.

Giraldi is certainly correct in at least one regard. If the neocons were simply foreign-policy realists, we'd hear them talking incessantly about China, and to a lesser extent, India, not Russia.

"Russia is our enemy" war drum has had me gobsmacked for years now. I guess it is no coincidence that Americans are more sympathetic to typical Russian values than those of the (((American))) left.

It always strikes me as a useful metaphor to think of the Diaspora Jews as a bratty princess archetype, Russia as the bad-boy who kicked her to the curb a long time ago, whom she can't quit psychotically messing with, and America as the friend-zoned beta orbiter always hanging around hoping for some scraps of her affection. With that metaphor in mind, much of the foreign policy nonsense with regards to Russia seems to fall into place quite nicely.

Can't say I agree with every particular, but overall that is what it looks like. There is no point in us trying to make Russia nice, there circumstance does not allow for it. Unlike us they have potential enemies on their long and hard to defend borders.

M'RGA - make Russia great again.

Russia's self restraint over the MH017 false flag and MetroJet from Sharm el-Sheikh has been spectacular. Didn't an Israeli company do security at Sharm el-Sheikh? Didn't they do security at Schiphol Amsterdam where MH017 took off?

Trump isn't just potentially draining the beltway swamp. Potentially he is draining every swamp everywhere there ever was.

Blogger Daniel Bendele June 06, 2018 9:39 AM  

Russia is now a traditionalist European, Christian country that regularly does battle with Islamic extremists. They border an increasingly dangerous China. It makes no sense for them to be a geopolitical enemy in the present circumstances. The "Deplorable" American shares far more values with a traditional Russian than he does with the Cultural Marxist hordes in Western Europe who have sacrificed their nations.

ICTS International N.V. is a Dutch firm that develops products and provides consulting and personnel services in the field of aviation and general security. It was established in 1982, by former members of the Shin Bet, Israel's internal security agency, and El Al airline security agents.

The author points out another historical coincidence as well:

In light of all this it should surprise no one that the new Russian government of 1918 issued a decree a few months after taking power making anti-Semitism a crime in Russia. The Communist regime became the world’s first to criminally punish any anti-Jewish sentiment.

"If the neocons were simply foreign-policy realists, we'd hear them talking incessantly about China, and to a lesser extent, India, not Russia."

Russia, now, is 100% Nationalist, but so are India and China on a more subtle level. There is resentment from the NWO to all of these states. Russia has been a punching target so long that they are just an easier target.

China IS Not reliably on board with Globalists since shortly past the very early 2000's. They were both just using each other. China has gotten sick of the Globalists in their borders, and has cooperated with ops against them. They are moving toward hegemony on their terms.

This thing is more complicated than two-dimensional minds can fathom, but on the simpler level it comes back to Nationalism vs. Globalism.

Two asset categories near and dear to every (((neocon)))'s heart: 1-precious metals, and 2-real estate. Russia possesses both in voluptuous volume. The (((neocons))) covet this their neighbor's wife and they will relentlessly work to separate husband from wife until they alone plunder her. (((They))) unselfishly are convinced she will be happier with (((them))).

Blogger NO GOOGLES June 06, 2018 11:02 AM  

It's the same reason neocons stopped being communists all those years ago: they lost control of Russia/the Soviet Union. The early Soviet state was almost entirely controlled by Jewish Bolsheviks. The first Party Congress after the 1917 Revolution was more than 85% Jewish.

Stalin ran most of the Jewish Bolsheviks out when he seized power and began purging people. Of course, this was also a big part of the reason why Russia was looted so heavily after the fall of the Soviet state - good ol' revenge.

Wow, the same (((familiar suspects))) using lies to try and arrange their favored tactic of "let's you and him fight"? Surely not.

Doris Day never seemed that nuts. You need to go with Natalie Woods who actually acted in the same movie with James Dean.

I've been struck for some time that current television seems similar to the cold war era in who they paint as villains. At the same time, the police or whoever the "good guys are" have less and less self-restraint/interest in observing the law, fewer white males in charge, and are having to protect defenseless, innocent muslims from harm and law enforcement prejudices.

Blogger Nostromo June 06, 2018 11:46 AM  

I have long considered Russia would be a more valuable ally to the U.S. than our current ones. And with China sharing a border, they need us just a tad more than we need them, because allies doesn't mean friend. Nations have no friends. I wish the majority in our government understood that. Thank God, the GE does.

Exactly! They're still salty from Trotsky being exiled and then assassinated after WW2. Stalin also cleaned house when he came to power and quite a few of those "clensed" were of that special religion in an "atheist" state. Lord Rothschild promised revenge on the Tsars for nixing a nascent global government in the 1840s and got it in 1918. I think this is much of the same thing.

Russia is a natural ally in the current state of affairs but the neocons keep pushing the Russians towards China. The sheer insanity of the neocon agenda will leave us hanging when Islam drives Europe to become preoccupied with internal affairs. Of course we have our internal problems. Sheesh, China only has to keep things together for another 15 years or so and Chinese hegemony will be guaranteed. What a sh!t sandwich...

I agree with you in large part but the Chinese PTB are more than happy to let a few hundred million starve, be cannon fodder, etc. IMO we should cede Asia to them and restore the Monroe Doctrine. Chances are good they'll "solve" Africa's population problems. Ethnarch and Jazzhands did a fascinating discussion on China a week or two ago on "Fash the Nation."

We have NEVER been enemies with Russia.

We have, however, been enemies with (((The Soviet Union))), a completely different political entity which temporarily displaced Russia.

Because over 95% of the new government officials at the top were Jewish. And according to Solzhenitsen, the majority of those were from Lower East Side of Manhattan Island, New York City, New York.

Yeah. I saw a video of one Jewess from the U.S. who moved to Isreal. She can't stop with the reflexive cultural criticism and snarky take-downs of the society she lives in. In one segment, she's standing on a stone pedastal, before a crowd, giving a speech in praise of the Holocaust.

Needless to say, she's not very popular among her fellow citizens.

"I have long considered Russia would be a more valuable ally to the U.S. than our current ones."

Russia is one of our oldest allies, although not until after we won the War for Independence. For example, the Russian Navy was founding by none other than John Paul Jones, of "I have not yet begun to fight!" fame.

During the Civil War, Russia's Pacific Fleet stayed every single winter in San Fransisco. As now, Russia has no ports that don't completely ice-over during the winter. Back then, they didn't have ice-breakers or steel hulls, so they ALWAYS spent winters at foreign ports.

The wording of the original post baffled me to start, so it took a few readings and a stroll through the comments, but I think I got it. One thing I'm not getting is the 80 years date. That would have put Nikita Khrushchev as premier. How exactly would his destalinization measures lead no identifiable group in particular to control the USSR?

Blogger het1 June 07, 2018 4:21 AM  

After "Moscow trials" and purge-1937 Jews de-facto have lost their control of Russia (USSR), and even Khrushchev's "destalinization" did not change this situation. Stalin de-facto was Russian nationalist (such a paradox); see for example opinion of Harry Hopkins: "It is ridiculous to think of Stalin as a communist. He is a Russian nationalist".
In the Soviet governments until 1991 practically there were no Jews.
After fall of USSR Jews occupied main position (especially economical) in Eltsin's government, and after "privatization". obtain in their possession all key state property (oil factories etc). From that time and until now oligarchs (most of them are Jews) are controlling Russian economy (hence politics also).

Therefore it is a difference between Russians (who are ‎undoubtedly friends of American people and USA) and Russian government.

Blogger GithYankee June 07, 2018 7:06 AM  

"AIPAC's influence over the three branches of the US government is considerably more tenuous".

Read "The Pentagon's Brain" about DARPA. I was surprised to see Jews had complete control of the Manhattan Project, H-bomb, DARPA, and the Vietnam war (to start, I'm only 1/4 through). The American cattle donate more tax money to Israeli defense than Israel does; I wouldn't say "tenuous", I would say "full-spectrum domination".

I realize, that as a Ukie, you hate all things Russian, but seriously, you think Putin is run by the Oligarchs?

The Oligarchs destroyed the already miserable standard of living of the typical Russian. Putin vowed to restore their standard of living -- AND DID SO! The only way to do such a thing was to bring the oligarchs to heel.

They are Russia's equivalent to our Washington, D.C. swamp creatures.

> you think Putin is run by the Oligarchs?

Do you hear proverb: "politics are concentrate of economics"?
Russian economics belongs to oligarchs from the time of Eltsin, hence politics also.

> The only way to do such a thing was to bring the oligarchs to heel.

No one oligarch have been "bring to heel" under Putin (except two or three his personal enemies).

Moreover, those oligarchs (most of them are non-Russian) who lost part of their capital because of US sanctions (say Deripaska) now receives all their losses from state budget – i.e. at the expense of Russian people.

> They are Russia's equivalent to our Washington, D.C. swamp creatures

Well, but we here in Russia do not have our Donald Trump:-((
