    That is funny. Credit Russia and the idiot savants of the press with hysteria.
    The anal plug is a nice addition.

      A more innocent mind might recognize it as a Tesla coil from the computer game Red Alert.

        Bingo! Tesla owners are retentive. Coughs.

    What has been evident since Lenin went to Russia is that we have no intelligence on Russia, none. Not one action of any Russian leader has ever been predicted, most especially Putin’s recognition of the Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk. That was one thing Washington did not predict. In retrospect it should have been obvious, and it gives the Russias a great deal of room to maneuver.

      US government “intelligence” agencies are in the dark about foreign motives and actions, but are up to speed on using their ever increasing budgets, technology, weaponry and manpower so spy on, intimidate, physically abuse, incarcerate and magically cause American citizens to somehow end up like Seth Rich and Michael Hastings. It matters not at all when they are caught working for foreign regimes, overthrowing a sitting president, earning mountains of cash from “persons unknown”, committing treason and threatening all who would lessen their power. Nothing happens to them. They operate with impunity and out in the open. They exhibit more raw power than the White House, the Congress, the Supreme Court, the State Department and the Pentagon. They have brought to heel and now control every aspect of the media and Big Tech.

      No power on earth can bring them to justice. Anyone in Washington who attempts to do so will get their attention. “Brave New World” meet “1984” meet “Darkness at Noon”; Stasi meet Gestapo meet KGB.

      Weaker minds will excuse and dismiss everything if just given an inch. OK, now we could dismiss this annexation of Donbas, couldn’t we? Biden actually said as much.

      You’re absolutely on point, Bob. The US intel is so concerned with my guns, crypto and freedoms that they were fooled easily. What’s next from PeeYouTin? Nobody fukn knows.

    I like Putin more every day. Here’s a recent moment with Vlad deftly playing O Canada on the piano just before meeting with Xi Jinping. Nice choice, comrade. https://tinyurl.com/8d6u5c

    I loved the inclusion and multi-cultural approach of letting the Eastside Rolling 40’s attend but the Bloods will retaliate because they aren’t invited.

    And not a think changed on our mountain this past week. Weird!

    The Clinton Wing of the American Democratic Party is “The Russians,” in this latest episode of their Media’s latest family sitcom. The two friends cooperate financially, strategically and institutionally to such an extent that they are indistinguishable from one another today. It’s the same Rhodes Scholar-ly international, tech-heavy, Booty-call Oligarchy, with their hands lodged deep inside each others’ pockets.

    If their media fabrications can levitate the Clinton’s friends’ private agendas to such heights, again, that they ‘justify’ a new shooting war in Europe, then this country is in real, real trouble, and has no future. As the “Russian Collusion Hoax” and the two-year COVID hysteria have just proven, when governing bodies govern according to faked media narratives, a tiny minority of government staffers can wreak Nuclear-grade havoc on entire Nations.

    And the lonely Bot-fly grub tunnels deeper into the Wildebeast’s brain.

    If we are to remain a self-determining Republic, then this has to end. And, as I see it, it can only end in one of two ways: We need to either abolish this thing called “freedom of the press,” and pick up the Chinese model of media control – which means nationalizing all broadcast stations, webhosting, publishers, schools, and the like…OR, the American broadcast industry must reform itself.

    Given the state of media ethics in American media today, and the lateness of the hour, I think the looming Sino media-model is the more likely outcome of the two.

      It is not just “the Russians” that have occupied the minds of those two treasonous weevils Bill and Hillary. Recall all the campaign finance scandals involving China; also recall how much missile technology from Loral Space Bill turned over to China. This allowed those Asiatic demons to advance 20 years in advanced warheads, missiles, and guidance systems technology. Thus did that priapic dung beetle put every American within range of Chinese ICBMs.

      As for “freedom of the press”, that supposes competition among various sources of media both local, national and foreign. That no longer exists and has not for decades. “Freedom of the press” has gone the way of “freedom of speech”. Say the wrong thing or write the wrong thing, then you and your family will be marked for destruction economically, politically or physically. More and more it is even the case that you will be destroyed for no reason at all, simply pour encourager les autres. Kafka lives!

      The US media will self-reform when Obama stops going to bath houses and when Biden regains his sanity. Self-reform in any capacity personal or national is always difficult and usually impossible.

      Such freedoms as promised in the Constitution are mere dust in the wind. No one pays any attention to that piece of paper. That is, except for the 2nd Amendment. That is because it does not rely upon some moldering document hidden away in some archive, but relies upon guns. Guns are a bit harder to ignore than paper. We might ask those Canadian truckers about the need for guns. Give up your guns and you give up your lives—literally.

      Fascism is slowly transforming America. There can be no denying this. Those who fantasize about returning to some long ago Arcadia are charming in their innocence but deadly in their naivete. They are oblivious to the reality all around them, and as such have rendered themselves useless. But that does not mean therefore that all is lost. Fascism a la Pinochet is yet a distinct possibility.

      If so then we can expect the media to do what they always do—lick-spittle, fawn, fellate and boot-lick those in power. And if one of their members starts to howl “freedom of the press” then it will be off in a helicopter for him.

      “Everything for the state, nothing outside the state, nothing above the state.” As long as our side controls the state, what, me worry?

      I must say that I am surprised at your comment. You normally seem to post intelligent comments here.
      Be very careful what you wish for. You may just get it.
      My question to you:
      Why would any thinking person wish to grant absolute control over the means of communication and dissemination of information to those who have demonstrated nothing but contempt for the truth?

      To adopt anything in the model of the Chinese communists is foolish in monumental proportion at best. And at worst it is fatal.

  • ghostsniper February 22, 2022, 9:39 AM

    We need to either abolish this thing called “freedom of the press,”
    Simply hold them accountable for their actions.
    But who can do that?

    • Mike Austin February 22, 2022, 10:00 AM

      No one. “Freedom of the press” has mutated into “tyranny of the press”. No dissenting voices are allowed. The “press” serves the ruling classes and despises all the rest. It feeds off sexual predation and lies. The press is to America what cancer is to flesh.

      • ghostsniper February 22, 2022, 11:32 AM

        It will stop feeding only when there is nothing left to feed upon.

        Take a look at that drawing at the top, that represents the way the gov’t-media has portrayed this whole russia thing. Looks like little kid scribblings doesn’t it? That’s the way the whole past 2 years of “imaginary virus concoction” looks too. See the pattern?

        Bombard the easily led masses, constantly, with the most enormous barrage of bullshit imaginable and watch all of them come apart at the hinges, starving for the buffalo jump.

        This methodry works in the US because a fair amount of the populace has been reduced through multigenerational pussification to wobbling, bloated masses of fructose laden emotional basket cases not even worthy of the whip. If the boot is put to them they just cry even louder. Barely even human.

      Not that I’m directly (or indirectly) suggesting such a thing – but the short story from some 20 years ago called: ‘What I Saw at the Coup’ by Matt Bracken is an interesting thought experiment. It is instructive on ways to ‘hold them accountable for their actions’. ‘Them’ is not just the media. It’s chilling for other reasons too – but I don’t want to spoil it.

      It’s easy to find, even using Google. There are several copies of it hosted a number of places, including over at http://www.americanpartisan.org, http://www.forumsforums.com, and at http://www.freerepublic.com. Should it suddenly disappear, I’ve archived copies – so it’s message can still spread to where it needs to. Contact me for it, if necessary.
