It makes sense that good journalists have to take a cold hard look at facts. That they don’t take a side, per se, and look at as many angles of a story that is humanly possible. Even under those provisos, we still find missing a lack of humanity in this entire propaganda “game” of Western Mauling Mainstream Media, in all the photo ops with this dirty man, Zelensky, and all the parading of billionaires like AdamSandler, Ben Stiller, Sean Penn and others with this dirty man, Zelensky. None of that makes sense when put up against the human toll of war. The lack of negotiations, again, on the shoulders of a small elite, rabble, really, not the smartest and most caring humans in the so-called box.
The left, right, middle, others, seem to use the news of this SMO — Ukraine v Russia, NATO v Russia, USA v Russian, Britain v Russia, Europe v Russia, Canada v Russia — as a bizarre point making exercise. History lessons? Looking at a glacial shift from EuroTrash Landia and Klanada and U$A as stalwarts of exceptionalism and doing good for all humanity, these non-journalists and stenographers use death as their play box, smirking and laughing, with all the rambling, repetion, all of it, while people DIE.
Again, revisit the German-made, All Quiet on the Western Front: Get a sense of how sick the leaders of the world were then, and, of course, sicker yet today, with all the supposed history under their belts.
Yes, the making of the film is sort of daft, but, still, go find the film, watch it, no interruptions, no popcorn. It’s still amazing, in this time of USA-Israel-EuroTrashLandia-Klanada, we are being guided by worthless humans arm chair quarterbacking and gleefully reporting on Kiev or Moscow, and tracking the sociopaths in Biden’s Horrible Administration. Like chess pieces on a grand chessboard.
So many years ago, from a sad writer, but so true now!
“The essential American soul is hard, isolate, stoic, and a killer. It has never yet melted.”
― D.H. Lawrence
Oh, the American soul is made up of Ivy League MBA’s, Poli-Sci grads, lawyers, all propaganda queens and kings. Slick, LGBTQA+ and full of Disneyland glee. Humanity, today, at nanosecond speed, with endless censoring, endless split hair lies, endless fake news, endless vapid history, endless people fomenting death, we have learned NOTHING. Even the Greta Thurnberg folks, 350.org, weigh in on “supporting” Ukraine, a Nazi regime, coup regime, a regime that has been a CIA stomping ground for 70 years.
This is some sick stuff, and I interviewed that Bill 350.org McKibben in 2005, and he told me on my radio show to give Obama a chance when he was first knighted as president.
On March 1, 2022, 350.org, an activist organization committed to a transition to renewable energy, published an article by Julia Krzyszkowska on its website that might as well have been published by the State Department, CIA or Defense Department.
The article was entitled “Solidarity with the People of Ukraine.” It proclaimed that “Ukraine, a peaceful democratic nation, is under a brutal military attack by Russia’s President Putin.”
However, Ukraine is not a peaceful democratic nation—its democracy was usurped in February 2014 when the U.S. backed a coup overthrowing the democratically elected President Viktor Yanukovych—and its current leader, Volodymyr Zelensky, has banned 11 opposition parties, hunted down dissidents, pressed to ban the Russian orthodox church, and muzzled opposition media while slaughtering thousands of people in eastern Ukraine.
These are not humane people. Look at their glimming faces:
This dude spends so much time pushing his faith. My god, what faith:
Q: What’s your faith history? How were you raised?
BM: I’ve been a good mainline Protestant of many flavors over the years. I was born in California and baptized as a Presbyterian. Then we lived in Toronto for five years, so I started Sunday school at the United Church of Canada. And then we moved to the suburbs of Boston where the local flavor was Congregationalist and I belonged to a high school youth group in the United Church of Christ. And then I moved up to the mountains (the Adirondacks) as a young man where the dominant flavor was Methodism. So now I’m a Methodist. (source)
He is the enemy, Bill:
McKibben wrote in February that it was “amazing to watch people across the planet rallying to the defense of brave Ukraine—choirs singing outside Russian embassies, soccer teams refusing to play Russian teams. And it’s wonderful to watch governments rise to the occasion: shutting off airspace to Russian airplanes, or kicking them off international banking protocols.” (source)
Oh, those Harvard educated folk, McKibben, a terrible man for sure. words like “rallying” and “wonderful to watch” and “choirs singing outside Russian embassies” what a loser. What a loser who is very very dangerous since he is a professor, a professing son of a you-know-what. What an American. What a Christian hypocrite. What a grifter.
More than cognitive dissonance he is displaying It is a concerted propaganda tour de force by yet another worthless human. Foundation for McvKibben is ignorance and misleading his followers (greenie weenies) down the brainwashing world. How many articles or books or talks has this idiot missed? (yes, ad hominem galore here, and no apologies given).
These people, or these cold, skinny jeans, Facebook posting woke (unwoke) people getting their 15 months, minutes, years of fame, the are emotional, historical, intellectual terrorists. What an ugly world we live in, as how in hell can anyone listen to a 350.org spiel, without condemning this quote above or the essay (sic) he wrote on his substack (source) . Green Warfare. That’s the 350.org way, and the way of my literary associations. Here, Orion Magazine, features four writers from Ukraine, and not one of the essays doubts the work of their own government, 2014 Maidan, all the killing in Donbass, security measures for Russian speaking Ukrainians. Total BS navel gazing crap: “Silence and Air Raids: 4 Essays from Wartime Ukraine: Four writers report from the ground in Odesa” (source) And, no comments section for these four self-indulgent pieces. Not that people do not have the right to write about the horrors of war, or being in a country where war is being unleashed. Of course those are important, but these essays are divorced from history, from nuance, and that is so wrong and sad and so greenie weenie and liberal lite as it gets!
Bill McKibben calls the U$A “an arsenal of democracy.” Whew. Read the rebuttle to this fool’s words: “Bill McKibben: Greenwashing U.S. Imperialism’s Russia Rivalry, War Moves in Ukraine …a Call for Debate” by Raymond Lotta:
Bill McKibben’s outlook and program are not going to lead to where he might, in his heart, want it to lead: to green energy. But Bill McKibben is playing a leading role in putting an environmental canopy on the anti-Putin bandwagon… and objectively acting to bring environmental activists and broader progressives into an embrace of the strategic aims and war preparations of U.S. imperialism against its imperial rivals. It is chauvinist to the core and morally despicable.
I’m challenging Bill McKibben to respond to my critique and to publicly debate the nature of Ukraine conflict, and why only revolution – not capitalism – gives humanity a chance to address the climate emergency. The stakes for humanity and the planet could not be higher.” (source)
I was watching All Quiet on the Western Front for a second time yesterday. I have recently watched again, The Thin Red Line. Oh, so many more zoning out affairs to validate how many deaths this capitalist and fascist regime has unleashed on humanity. Russia, and China, just validating them, well, I have lost contacts who will not debate Russia and Ukraine or China or greenwashing and green pornography.
China? The entire history in less than 90 minutes. Watch:
[ This is a long, but extremely informative explanation of China’s “Century of Humiliation” and will leave no doubt in your mind as to why China wants a unified society and a powerful military. Historian Carl Zha of the Silk & Steel podcast joins me to talk about China’s “Century of Humiliation” at the hands of Western powers and how it connects directly to US-Chinese tensions today. – How the US has repeatedly made treaties and agreements with China only to betray them when US interests demand; – The West’s historical use of Hong Kong and Taiwan as hubs to destabilize and dominate over the rest of China; The historical use by the West of China for cheap labor and for markets to exploit; The threat China faced for lacking a strong military and a unified population; The clear motivations China has for a military and political system used to protect itself from further interference and exploitation.]
Scott Ritter has a role in dissecting the Special Military Operation, and he does interview Russians, for god’s sake, which is rare. You don’t see this in the MSM, for sure, and all the usual CIA and State Department suspects are there, without any regard for Russia. Very bizarre times, for sure. Bizarre that USA journalists will not interview Russian experts, or Russian people. Very sick indeed.
However, the laughing and goofiness of guys like Ritter is still upsetting to me:
Yeah, it’s not all gloom and doom, but so many people are making hay off the deaths of hundreds of thousands. Again!
The numbers of civilians and conscripted soldieres and the collateral deaths and then the starvation, the early deaths, the PTSD and physical ailments, the disease, all of that from wars? Even rotten Wikipedia has something on that:
Some disgusting number of 1.64 billion have died in all wars throughout human existence (where do they come up with numbers . . . ?). Bizarre estimates, no? Sanctions Kill. And, the lifeblood of nations are the children, the unborn, the offspring, so war stunts humanity, Homo Sapiens. Billions have been destroyed by wars. And, here we are, in 2022, these rotten people with suits and smiles determining deaths directly on the battlefield, and then, the collateral damage:
Sick sick sick people, run by these continual criminal enterprises:
And this is acceptable, CEOs, women, running-ruining the world:
“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”
