If one objectively weighs the evidence, Kimdotcom's assessment of the US is right on the money.

It seems to me that the Regime's purpose in promoting the LGBTQetc lifestyle is to destroy conservative Americans' loyalty to what used to be the United States. It's a carefully crafted demoralization campaign meant to sever the bond between patriots and the bathhouse that is today's America. If patriots don't stand up to defend her, the path is made clear for the left to completely alter America.

Agree. If you believe, rightly so, that the government and all its agencies lied about the scamdemic and shots, then you have to question and realize they are probably lying about this situation with Ukraine. Sorry nato/ukraine bots - that's the way it is. Once you accept that premise research for yourself and with open eyes. Things do not add up. As far as EU, they are adults and they screwed themselves.

It occurs to me that if western Europe wants to keep warm this winter, they have only to insist that their leaders abandon support for the Biden/Nato sanctions against Russia. Easy peasy. Of course, their elite leaders are as bought and paid for as ours are. I mean, look at what happened here. As soon as Joe sat down behind the Desk, he cancels the Keystone pipeline and then starts canceling drilling leases instantly turning America from an energy independent, exporting country with a booming economy with low energy prices into an oil importing country with escalating energy prices. Did we rise up in anger and insist our elite leaders reverse what they did? Nope. Bought and paid for.

I know I’m well into broken-record-ism here, but listen to the dull-throated (I meant to type “full-throated” but I like that Spoonerism better) objections of our patriotic GOP House and Senate.

Exactly, Fred. The GOP should have stood up and vehemently objected to Biden's "vaccine" mandates last year. Instead...nothing, beyond a few voices crying in the wilderness. Their silence in the face of Biden's extension of his emergency powers, under the pretext of fighting covid, was also awfully telling.

But for a handful of sincere Rs, we do appear to be on our own. So be it.

If the anti-Putin Puppet Choir actually read or listened to what Putin actually says, they would be mighty surprised. And by the way, there must be a reason why the whole walk-away world supports Putin ... and no longer the Lying Western Dear Leader establishment.

And here is a real simple question. Who in their right mind would want to deal with Pedo Pete, the menace of any kindergarten sandbox ... and ostensibly the Leader of the Western World? To go the Pedo Pete, the Thrilling Trudeau or Ursula van der Crazy route is to embrace suicide with open arms!

Horsey, the Ukrainians were bombing their own people for over 8 years. We (CIA, Victoria Nuland )forced regime-change there in 2014. Did anyone of us know about it, or cry for the victims when the bombing started? Large segments of the Ukrainian people have been taught to hate Russian-speakers, the majority of whom considered themselves to be Ukrainians until the bombing started. NATO, led by the US, forced Putin’s hand. Putin did not want this war. That is why he has been so careful to protect civilians and infrastructure and has been reluctant to go for a full scale mobilization. WE have intentionally provoked Russia and you can thank our neocons for this. Don’t take my word for any of this though. Read, investigate and think for yourself. Learn about the Minsk Accords, the False assurances we gave to Gorbachev, the role of the Nazi leader Stepan Bandera and his reemergence as a national hero. There’s much more if you can bring yourself to look. Painful, but necessary to reluctantly realize that our country has not always acted honorably on the world stage.

Credenza- you're exactly right. The propaganda over this Ukraine war is outstanding and just as effective as the "fear" promoted around covid. You forgot to mention that Ukraine has been the ultimate, corrupted playground for the Biden Crime family (and others) for years, a great place to hid bio-labs, missing children and the best place to launder drug money. Biden MUST protect it, lest his secret get out. What better way than to keep poking Russia, thinking the allies will follow. It's all optics to siphon more money off the American citizens for the war machine to "protect democracy" as other wars were to "fight communism". The same people who start these wars, get rich(er) off of them. That's always been history, at least, back to the Civil War. It's so profitable, the wealthy finance both sides. Cheney absolutely cleaned up after 9/11. And our young soldiers DIE in the process. We're dealing with pure evil.

Yeah, not buying Putin propaganda. Call me anti-KGB thug. Guilty.

Stephen Bandera was not a “Nazi leader.” He was arrested and imprisoned by… wait for it… the Nazis.

Again, I’m well-acquainted with Soviet propaganda. Sorry they got to you, Credenda. All of this is old propaganda. Russia does possess excellent propaganda services. But it’s amazing the depth on how much of it has been digested by so many here.

Astounding actually. Soviet propaganda has smoothly transitioned right to dissemination under Putin. That’s quite a feat.

A good book on Ukraine is “Harvest of Sorrow” by Sovietologist Roger Conquest.

Epoch times and others reporting of Ukraine shows a much different war.

MI6 sent spec ops Russia obliterated. All but one dead. So much for Russian incompetence.

Ukraine is lobbing missiles at it's own nuclear power plant and wasn't letting inspectors in until Russian threatened to go get inspectors the hard way. Can you say Chernobyl II?

US missiles Ukraine are using REQUIRE use of US satellites and US trained operators to target. (Takes a yr to learn system) So we've got people pushing buttons on missile systems aimed at Russian troops. Stupid!

The Donbas area Russia is taking voted 3 time to join Russia because the Ukrainians we're killing ethnic Russians by the thousands. So who is the actual aggressor?

Ukrainian soldiers in Azov battalion are literal Nazis with swastikas patches on uniforms.

Boris Johnson told Ukraine NOT to enter peace talks in April despite Russia repeatedly throwing out olive branches. So everyone dead since then is his fault.

US trained mercenaries are now there fighting. Why? We were told Ukraine was winning.

Only 30% of arms and money are actually being used by Ukraine. The rest had been sold on black market and lined pockets.

I'm sure there's more but I appreciate Putin hasn't blamed the American people for what our mentally ill leaders are doing.

Whether or you like or hate Putin, he’s doing what should have been done long ago. You’re correct, the Azov Battalion are Nazis (some of them were caught on film during the January 6 “event” (but I digress).

If average Americans had paid even a nanosecond of attention to events in Ukraine for at least the last 10 years, it would be obvious that very suspicious funny business has been occurring there with thinly disguised U.S. involvement directing events, and Joe Biden is/has been in it right up to his hair plugs.

Putin is losing and his ChiCom allies won't save him. Putins' Nazi mercs, The Wagner Group can't change his mistake and neither can his bought and paid for Chechen traitors. Azov are not Nazis but people fall for bad Russian propaganda. The Nazis are the guys with Nazi-like Z on their equipment.

The WEF is holding conferences with the Russia-ChiCom Alliance in Communist China. This fanciful idea that Soros and other globalists won't work with the Russia-ChiCom Alliance is funny. It's not too smart.

The biolabs in northern Ukraine "releasing birds into Russia" was a gimmick Putin had his UN rep. take to NY. It was meant for a domestic audience. It makes zero sense. How would birds know the difference between flying into Russia or Ukraine? Would they learn how to read Russian?

Putin was afraid of Trump. A story earlier this year came out by accident. President Trump did not get lucky with Putin not taking an inch of land from another country. It was by design.

President Trump had told golfer John Daly, apparently earlier this year, it was not an accident. Trump told Putin if he invaded Ukraine he would "bomb Moscow" or the Kremlin.

Trump said to Daly it didn't matter if Putin didn't believe him 100%. He said even 10% or so would work perfectly well. And he was right.

We know this is true because it was captured on audio. It shouldn't have been but a friend of John Daly betrayed him recording it.

TDK, I subscribe to the Epoch Times. They don't cover Putin's invasion much.

But to what you write:

Russia hasn't obliterated much but civilian areas and infrastructure (their specialty). There's nothing evidenced about this alleged operation you claim by "MI6."

Ukraine isn't bombing their own nuclear plant. Putin was blocking UN inspectors. He doesn't like what they are saying now on what they've seen. He's using the nuke plant as an ammo depot.

Ukraine has run their operations and their soldiers are in the field and using the world's arms support quite effectively. They are using Russia's latest armor donations effectively now too. Russia is now in the top 5 of nations providing arms to Ukraine. Russians fled in a panic and left over 1500 military vehicles behind over the last week. There's dozens and dozens of tanks among them.

Donbas is not looking so well now. No amount of lying about "thousands" killed by Ukraine is helping Russia now. People are kidnapped off the street and thrown into the Russian army on the front. One story I saw, a guy said he went out to buy shampoo and got nabbed. Others are hiding in their homes as anyone from a teen up to 60 gets forced "enlistment."

Russia doesn't throw "olive branches." Ask the people of Chechnya or Georgia about Russia's olive branches. The only Nazis in Ukraine are the Wagner Group. Wagner, the composer, beloved figure of Putin's mercy army leader. Closest thing to a swastika is the "Z" on Russian gear not Ukraine.

You also claim 30% of arms and money are used by Ukraine. Show us the evidence. If only 30% is being used by Ukraine, then the Russian army is more like Iraq's under Saddam Hussein. It can't be that bad.

Russia is losing. Russia is losing and Putin can't stop it. Unless you enlist and help him.

After nothing but pro-Ukraine propaganda for six months that turned out to be lies, forgive us if we don't take your "expert" analysis as truth.

You don't know what is going on in Ukraine as reporting on the entire operation has been nothing but propaganda. Your definitive statement that, "Russia is losing and Putin can't stop it" is patently absurd wish-casting. You have no idea if this is true or not. Virtually every sentence in your comment is presented as fact with zero hard evidence. It's got the "Ghost of Kiev" vibes all over it.

Frankly I'd like both sides to lose as I'm happy to see two corrupt oligarch-led factions blow each other to smithereens. It's like the Iran-Iraq war of the 80's. But I'm following it close enough to recognize obvious propaganda, your comment being a prime exhibit.

No, your assumption is incorrect. I know that Putin has lost thousands of square miles that has been liberated and that is ongoing. Russia's army was routed in the east. Even in Russia, they are trying to cope with this, on State TV it's tending to go badly.

My prediction is on the record here. Putin is losing. What evidence would you like, a drone showing all of the thousands of liberated lands?

You can root for oligarchs going down. Putin is taking some of his oligarchs to windows and sending them for a ride out of hospital and other windows. I'd like to see some globalist oligarchs outside Russia meet a similar fate.

You seem totally clueless, and none of us are going to waste our time finding things we've read to show you the truth.

The money was allegedly given to NGOs linked to George Soros.

More recently CBS news did a segment showing a huge % of weapons we send aren't even making it to the front lines. They're having to rely on civilians to distribute not only weapons, but uniforms, vests, shoes, food etc. because the Ukrainian government/military is apparently too incompetent to accomplish the simple task of supply distribution.

Although it took several hundred years for Rome to collapse (it was more of an erosion of power and influence), Marcus Aurelius realized this which is why reading Meditations is particularly relevant. I have yet to identify an equivalent philosopher king in the U.S. political landscape. Ron DeSantis, perhaps?

Not sure how big the bathhouse really is. Lots of noise and very little signal these days. E.g. my first take on this Kim guy is that this is Davos’ new narrative: blame the US, which itself has been taken over by Klaus et. al., to keep the focus off the real culprits, the schmucks running the EU and using old European money, and the US, to rescue their failing plan to take over the world and make us all eat bugs.

Wow, you completely threw open the door on that discussion! Let's clean ALL the teeth while we're at it. I had to think about the question of US patriots' loyalty being severed to...? I'll have to think on that some more. Here's what I see. Everything - and I mean everything - the Bolsheviks in DC are doing has individually the single purpose of literally destroying American culture and society, each in it's own unique fashion whether it be oil production, food production, LGBTetc, uncontrolled mass immigration, medical panics, economic lock downs, ramping up another foreign war, destruction of our $ via massive money creation, running roughshod over our most basic sacred societal values represented by the First Amendment, etc etc etc... they are quite literally not just altering America, they are destroying America. (After all, they are nihilists.) But focusing exclusively on these issues blinds us to the most important aspect of this war. And this will determine the outcome of this war. The Bolsheviks overarching strategy is to create as much conflict and chaos as they can to divert our attention from the one battle that will decide the outcome of this war. All of the above issues will FOLLOW the results of this battle they so desperately want to distract us from. The Bolsheviks took control of the apparatus of power in this country in a coup in the 2020 elections. Having taken control, they must now REMAIN in power in order to consolidate their control permanently. They have no intention of ever relinquishing control. This is the battle that will decide the outcome of this war. All of the other issues will follow. This is what we MUST focus on. Maybe ejsmith is right. Maybe DeSantis will turn out to be the "philosopher king" we need to spearhead this fight. Regardless, we must turn a laser focus on this hilltop battle for the City on the Hill and take a stand. It is on this hill we will live or die.

Looked at from a purely realpolitik POV: medium-term to long-term, this demoralization campaign is suicide. The smart evil people, as opposed to merely the army of useless idiots, have to be acutely aware- at least some of them- of the incompetence and inability their agenda has been breeding into American institutions. Unless their goal to "completely alter America" is to eliminate our sovereignty and self-determination, it's shooting themselves in the foot to weed out or breed out their best soldiers, producers, and teachers.

Maybe that is the goal and it's just simply controlled demolition, but I think that's melodramatic. Evil schemes rarely plan to end in suicide.

Guttermouth, I am with Dr. Yeadon on this one; I sense that something very evil is going on. Yeah, I know, my feelz...

As someone whose journey went from believer to agnostic/atheist and back to believer, I have experienced things that lead me to strongly believe in a spiritual realm. God is real. And so is evil...a very personal evil. I've experienced it. I genuinely struggle to make sense of the madness that's gripped the world these last 2 years without seeing it through a supernatural prism.

Power, greed, and governmental stupidity all have a role in carrying out what's been going on, but behind it all is an anti-human agenda. They just injected the toxic spike protein, knowing that it would travel throughout and settle in various organs of the body, into hundreds of millions of human beings. And they have plans for sticking us with more mRNA. Something very evil is afoot and the destruction of the nation-state is part of that plan. Are they trying to kill billions and turn the surviving "hackable human beings" (Harari's words) into science projects/slaves? The possibility cannot be dismissed, in my opinion.

I could write 10 pages of my semi-coherent thoughts on this, but I'll spare you that. (Not my family...they are subjected to it all...).

Wrong. The entire fallacy is based on this myopic "everything is viewed through a domestic lens." It's sadly infantile.

The lawyer's analysis of Putin's "bad weekend" in Ukraine is more than limp. The fat Dotcom man aside, some adopted this notion Russia is doing great and the sanctions are not impacting them.

That's beyond wishful thinking. For months I've seen videos up on YouTube where Russians knowing the limitations faced on speech merely go shopping and point out the prices of food. That's all they do and it was up 20% months ago. Others point to the economy backtracking to 2018 levels. Putin is in a box of HIS own making.

There's quite a wealth of conspiracy chatter out there and most of it feigns this notion that Putin did nothing. You would think Putin never invaded let alone is in and trying to takeover Ukraine. Of course, it's the fault of America and often as part of a coordinated globalist plan. It's the simpleton and ingnorant or as I've compacted it: the Qtardia world view.

The woeful knowledge of what happened yesterday let alone in history is readily apparent. Forget one of the greatest US President's in Ronald Reagan, people don't understand the Cold War, who Putin, a KGB thug was (and is) let alone the Reagan Doctrine.

Ukraine is showing how patriots stand up. They stood up and shocked the Obiden Regime. People have already forgotten it was Joe Biden who greenlit Putin's invasion. He publicly said out loud what was clearly being discussed privately. "An incursion" is fine into Ukraine, Biden mouthed. He said the quiet part out loud and Putin heard him.

What wasn't anticipated was how Ukraine would stop the Putin war machine cold after the initial invasion. The West was forced to respond as people in their countries could see what was happening and how Ukraine won the "Battle of Kyiv." They demanded Russia be stopped and aid provided.

That's where the entrenched parties remain. Except Russia is losing, war crimes are being exposed and the EU is publicly admitting all the nations who have been warning about Putin and his lust for empire were right. (Putin's brain talks about the objective of an empire across Europe all the way to Dublin, Ireland.) Putin himself publicly talks about ending the post Cold War environment where Russia and his ChiCom Allies are no longer second fiddle; or any fiddle. Empire!

It's pretty sad people want to put aside the actions and ambitions of others and in this case, the ChiCom-Russia Alliance. It doesn't go away because you wish it away in a void of American global stability. The farce exiting Afghanistan gave the ChiCom-Russia Alliance the green light.

They are going into action and if anyone wants to choose ostrich in the sand isolationism, they certainly can. They may want to take Mandarin classes on the side. At least then, they won't be totally in dark.

You give some valid points, but methinks you let EU/USA off the hook a bit too easily. I take your fourth paragraph as a dismissal of the "conspiracy" view. Quite the to the contrary. I would argue that America or more precisely a Deep State the controls America, the EU and much of the so-called "West," in fact are executing some form of "globalist" military adventurism. I'm not saying Putin has no flaws.

I note, in passing, that it's very hard to try and analyze the issues dispassionately. Yes, much of the world is affected economically, but other than overt/covert aid, no one beyond Russia and Ukraine are presently at war. Often I inquire, just why are we being encouraged to take sides? Is Ukraine really the victim here? Why is there rarely any mention of the Minsk Accords of several years ago? Of the US meddling in Ukraine? That's hardly new; the US has a long history of at times appalling intervention in foreign nations, short of declared war. The Deep State is waging the war, not the Ukrainians. Follow the money; it's a quite reliable path to finding out who really is calling the shots, as well as profiting off a conflict while easily manipulated foreigners do the killing and dying. Empire by proxy, one of the oldest pastimes in the book.

Folks, there's a lot more going on than just sporting a yellow and blue flag and "I stand with Ukraine" on your Facebook or Twitter feed. Closer to the truth is we are pawns in an elaborate chess game.

My friend, SD, I hear you but the reason why people are cheering are over the world from countries near and far with the events of the last week in Ukraine is because people know Putin made a decision to invade Ukraine.

Putin was not facing any "invasion" as he told the Russian people or any threat from its military. He just doesn't want to be bordered by a close country which will see people in Russia raise questions such as, "why can't we live like Ukraine?"

Putin thought he was playing checkers and he was told his invading military could take over Ukraine and the capital in three days and they would mop up the country in a weeks or two.

He made a mistake and he won't admit it. I can assure you the Regan Doctrine is not dead and it's the people of Ukraine who shocked the world stopping the big Bear invasion. It wasn't a Deep State plan.

Hi Mr. Henry; the talk of Putin building an empire across Europe to Dublin wasn't my idea. It came from "Putin's brain."

In Russia, there's quite a few of these Nazi-like characters who view the world as Russia's oyster.

This year, they've been rattling the saber, threatening to nuke Warsaw and roll tanks to Berlin. They actually broadcast it on State TV. They don't make a secret of it.

Sort of how the ChiComs issue public statements about their plans for empire. Some people notice and most aren't aware they happen. In the US, Putin has said many things over many years and he failed to get much coverage here about it.

But Putin and Xi, they've been talk'in. At the Olympics, Xi is thought to have told Putin not to invade before the end of the Olympic games in Beijing. Putin agreed and held off until it was over.

Anyone accusing you of "repeating Russian talking points" is just saying you criticize the foreign policy of the US and its allies. That is always what they truly mean by that once you really drill down on what they're saying and why they are saying it. The argument is that because Russia criticizes the foreign policy of the US-centralized empire, you never should. Which is self-evidently extremely moronic.

It's literally impossible to be an aggressive critic of US foreign policy with a sizeable audience and not be accused of repeating Russian taking points. Literally every single high-profile person who does so gets accused of Kremlin loyalty, without a single, solitary exception.

Those who tell you to "move to Russia" when you criticize the foreign policy of the western empire are the same people pushing for internet censorship and the silencing of unauthorised media and demanding retractions from any western outlet that forgets to parrot the official line.

"Move to Russia!" No, you move to Russia. You're the one trying to suppress dissent and criticism of the powerful. I'm the one who is living by western values as they were sold to me and demanding normal scrutiny of the most powerful empire of all time. You don't belong here.

Agree 100%. Folks, we are not (yet) in wartime. At least in the USA, we still have this thing called freedom. That doesn't mean I can post anything I want on social media owned by someone else. But it does give us the right to voice dissent, or to even read (or repeat) Russia's talking points. It may surprise some, but even here in the "land of the free and many other nations (e.g. England) there is historical precedent to censor and even jail dissenters. This happened in both WW I and WW II and perhaps earlier. Turns out that governments don't like back-talk and rights are a flexible concept. What is unprecedented at last in modern times, so far as I know, is the pervasive censorship in our society, often "privatized" and not directly forced by government, although often with revelations that they encourage it at times (e.g. on Covid-19 "misinformation").

Expand full comment

"rights are a flexible concept." They are not though they have been treated that way. I want to address that sometime but for now I'll just say that in the American system of liberty and justice, "Rights" are inalienable. Rights are not given by the State. Rights are inalienable because they are from God. ALL rights reside in the people. The Government only has such powers as are delegated to it WITH THE CONSENT OF THE PEOPLE. Such consent can be withdrawn. All of this can be read in the Declaration of Independence which then imports meaning to the opening phrase of the US Constitution which starts with "WE THE PEOPLE..."

All of this is only possible because the American concept of liberty as laid out in these documents is based upon Christian concepts. Should the American people completely lose their adherence to the Biblical faith, then they shall lose their liberty.

 NATO became an obsolete organization, beginning 1991 when the Soviet union collapsed. That is when we and the rest of NATO promised not to move any further east.

This is all in direct violation of the founding fathers exhortation to avoid entangling alliances,
