Kunstler: Fever Pitch

Public Policy

Those in the USA who have not been driven plumb insane by President Donald Trump are probably scratching their heads down to the subdural cavity this week with his imposition of more severe sanctions on Russia only a month after he went to Helsinki to repair tattered relations with Russia’s president, Mr. Putin. The official reason: payback for the poisoning in Wiltshire, UK, of Sergei Skripal, retired UK/Russia double agent, and his daughter Yulia.

Really? For that? For a botched assassination with one of the world’s most potent military nerve agents which, by the way, failed to kill its victims. (Somebody please go inform the Russian military that they may have batch problems over at the nerve agent lab.) Oh, also, by the way, there’s less evidence that whatever-it-was on the Skripal’s doorknob, or in the bubble-and-squeak they ordered at that restaurant, came from Russia than from the UK’s own military poisons lab at nearby Porton Down.

This new mystifying chapter in US foreign relations raises some beguiling questions. For instance: why exactly do we give a fuck about a Russian spy who sold out to the UK at the same moment in history that we (that is, the American public and their news media) hardly heaved a sigh over the joint US – Saudi bombing of a school bus in Yemen that killed 43 people, mostly children, this week?

Want to see the dishonesty of The New York Times in action? Read this story from Thursday’s (Aug 9) paper about the school bus bombing. The lede says: “An airstrike from the Saudi-led coalition struck a school bus in northern Yemen on Thursday and killed dozens of people, many of them children….” Got that? A “coalition.” Guess what? Nowhere in the story does the Times explain that the US is part of that coalition. “The strikes were “carried out in accordance with international humanitarian law….” The Times concluded the story. Szh-yeah, I’m sure….

Our President, who I like to call the Golden Golem of Greatness for his role in restoring this limping nation to something like a 1947 Jimmy Stewart movie — all Christmas and kittens — might be accused of overplaying the sanctions blame-game in order to demonstrate to our own Deep State how much he doesn’t love Russia and its leader, Mr. Putin, a verified agent of Satan. Next thing you know, Mr. Trump will don evangelical robes and hurl bibles at a photo of Vladimir P on Don Lemon’s CNN show. That’ll get Ole Horseface Mueller off his back, won’t it? And those pesky Dem-Progs drooling for impeachment.

Alas, this sanctions gambit may lead to serious consequences — a nearly unthinkable outcome in our culture of Anything-Goes-and-Nothing-Matters. Mr. Putin responded to the latest sanctions talk by saying he might withdraw Russia’s ambassador from Washington. (I’m not even sure what he’s still doing there, since the Michael Flynn incident established the new notion in DC that speaking to ambassadors from foreign lands is somehow against the law.) If you read a little history, you may notice that the withdrawal of diplomats is usually one of the last political acts before war.

We need a war with Russia, right? Well, it’s possible that the Deep State’s factotums want one — since they’ve been hollering about the wickedness of Russia at a deafening pitch for two years now. I’m wondering just what their fantasy of this war might be. Anything like the great victory over Grenada back in 1983, our most successful military venture since the surrender of Japan in 1945? Code-named Operation Urgent Fury, this campaign against one of the Caribbean’s most dangerous nations, took only four days to wrap up — and notice, we haven’t had any trouble from them Grenadian bastards ever since.

    Mr Putin should completely give up on the US and together with China organize his defenses and stay on speaking terms with the Europeans, with the reassuring knowledge that the later, although unfortunately officially still US vassals (1945-thingy), are completely dependent on Russia for fuel, a dependence that will only vastly increase once oil from the Gulf will stop flowing completely.

    And Brexit will provide a huge impetus for continental Europe to finally leave the West, not a minute too early.

    Once the war/escalating sanctions against Iran are a fact, continental Europe, Russia and China, all two billion of them, should sit together and decide what we are going to do with Anglosphere.

    “Once the war/escalating sanctions against Iran are a fact, continental Europe, Russia and China, all two billion of them, should sit together and decide what we are going to do with Anglosphere.”

    Simple I would suggest. We already know who the culprits are. In the UK, they have general control of the population, because the population are ignorant of who they are and their agenda. These people fear exposure. If the British public knew who was responsible for the mass migration calamity into the U.K, I.e. if they knew who was really pulling the strings of puppets like Tony Blair and Theresa May; and they were sufficiently organised through underground political movements; they may just be tempted to finish what Adolf started.

    This isn’t something that need wait for a Sino-Russian-European alliance. The beginnings of it can be planted already. Maybe you would be interested in helping Cloggie, instead of pointlessly fantasizing?

    Again the agenda: multi-polar world a la Samuel Huntington. But since this is no longer 1990, it is too late to keep the US in one piece.

    Eurasia should play into US white nationalism in their drive to create a white ethno-state. Future map balkanized US:

    – Restoring 1820 US-Mexican border. Rockies and southern Texas up until Red River back to Mexico
    – White ethno-state coinciding with the Mississippi bassin, between Rockies and Apalachians: https://tinyurl.com/ho93dbe
    – African-American state, capital Atlanta
    – Global Pale of Settlement 2.0 in Upstate New York, 3rd attempt at a “final solution of the JQ”, after Hitler’s Ukrainian resettlement program and Israel somewhat majestically failed.

    US budget deficit is a tad shy of $1trillion this year. Over half of that is now used to cover debt interest. When most of your loans are taken out to cover existing loans, the end cannot be far off.

    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-08-10/budget-deficit-soars-684bn-10-months-spending-interest-hits-all-time-high

    The US government continues to borrow over 5% of annual GDP and interest rates are expected to continue rising. It doesn’t look good.

    Ah, shut up, Kuntler. You’re babbling incoherently. Trump is not imposing sanctions on Russia. It is his administration, which is something totally separate from Trump. Such is the bizarre state of American government at the moment.

    And who exactly wants a war? It is the dotard, you idiot Kuntler. The dotard wants a war (or several) so that American will rally around the flag with tears in their eyes and choke up with patriotic fervor, and forget about Trump’s crimes. Those who don’t fall in line will be rounded up as anti-American.

    Spot on, MM. Heck, incarcerating Americans who refuse to act “patrioticly” will be a piece of cake after the “training” the US “security” agencies have had at the border. And 1930’s-40’s Germans showed how far things could go — some of them gassed Jews as their day job, and then went home to their families, to “How was your day, dear?”

    The first quotation made me nauseous and the second made me laugh. So, the article had an impact.

    To paraphrase Kustler’s message, all this patently ridiculous bullshit is meant to lead us to war. I don’t see how a rational mind could come to any other conclusion, in light of the evidence cited.

    The Empire needs a war. A YUGE one to distract the debt slaves from its fast declining situation, and before the Stock Market Casino blows up. It is beating on the bear, threatening the dragon, scaring the EU with lies, invading 3rd world countries, Threatening Iran. Providing weapons and ammo to as many countries as possible.

    aswang you’re a tard old man. you’re a peacenik and a war monger at the same time. this is not me, this is supertard telling me about you. i already explained to you that it is impossible to be peaceful and as a tard and a former paultard, we only used peace as a club to bash the government.

    i showed you islam prescribes war.

    in “the history of jihad from muhammad to ISIS” robert spencer quoted muslim historian on the slaughter of hindus, hundreds of thousands slaughtered when they ran away.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Jihad_verse_(Al-Baqara_216)

    i told you supertard jefferson fought the first war against barbary pirates and phils is a failed state because it’s sharing the monopoly of force with muslims. as a matter of fact, they fought a devastating war with muslims in marawi. phils is isolated because china is not going to give you anything other than taking your territory and aiding muslims. they already did that in pakistan.

    you’re a bitter old man because you still fight WW2. you feel germans are mistreated by USA but supertard president paul is german and he did very well. Trump is german too.

    you are full of anger and hate. you’re not sure of your move to phils to be with bf’s so you justifying it daily on here. you hate it when i told you phils is a third world country. i told you about diseases, unsafe public infrasturcutre, suicide showers on and on. lacking supertards. you never listen.

    you’re too indoctrinated by alt-tard media you poor thing. i was a paultard don’t you think i studied all this alt-tard media?

    Cloggie “Once the war/escalating sanctions against Iran are a fact, continental Europe, Russia and China, all two billion of them, should sit together and decide what we are going to do with Anglosphere.”

    I wish that will happen and it might eventually, but I think that Europe is esentially a US occupied territory right now, and it won’t be easy to remove the USA from Europe until after the US collapses. I believe the USA will voluntarily leave Europe once it can no longer afford its occupation and financing NATO.

    Well, it tied the Korean War, got its butt kicked in Nam. I guess the US did win in Grenada, that military powerhouse, and did get rid of a few ex CIA employees.
    The reality is, the US has not won a war from WWII on.

    This latest round of illegal, unjustified US sanctions against Russia have to be the stupidest of the whole lot. I am in favour of all sanctions, tariffs, and trade wars because I believe they help the collapse process. The sooner the global financial system and the USA collapse the better for all humanity. If that was the goal of the sanctions then they would be smart, but the goal is to keep the USA up and the rest of the world down, and I don’t believe they will help in that at all, and that’s why I call them stupid. As I’ve been saying since this all started, this process will keep getting worse until it all comes tumbling down. There is no light at the end of this tunnel.
