    “YEE HAWWW!”
    The Gen’ral, 1982

  • ghostsniper March 22, 2024, 12:16 PM

    The Most Popular World Leader
    The reality is that if Putin were to run against Biden in the U.S. Presidential election, there is a very good chance that he would win, and that chance would become a near-certainty with a single debate, even given Putin’s need for a translator.

    Everything about Clown World is fake and SGL. Every single thing.


    Your odds are not good when your entire geostrategic approach to winning World War III revolves around inspiring a color revolution against the most popular, most democratically-supported leader on the planet.

    They have waited 10 long, suffering years to vote in this election. And vote they did, in massive numbers, certifying a landslide reelection for the political leader who brought them back to Mother Russia. VVP may now be widely referred to as Mr. 87%. In Donetsk, turnout was even higher: 88,17%. And no less than 95% voted for him.

    To follow the Russian electoral process at work in Donbass was a humbling – and illuminating – experience. Graphically, in front of us, the full weight of the collective West’s relentless denigration campaign was instantly gobbled up by the rich black soil of Novorossiya. The impeccable organization, the full transparency of the voting, the enthusiasm by polling station workers and voters alike punctuated the historical gravity of the political moment: at the same time everything was enveloped in an impalpable feeling of silent jubilation.

    This was of course a referendum. Donbass represents a microcosm of the solid internal cohesion of Russian citizens around the policies of Team Putin – while at the same time sharing a feeling experienced by the overwhelming majority of the Global South. VVP’s victory was a victory of the Global Majority.
    And that’s what’s making the puny Global Minority even more apoplectic. With their highest turnout since 1991, Russian voters inflicted a massive strategic defeat to the intellectual pigmies who pass for Western “leadership” – arguably the most mediocre political class of the past 100 years. They voted for a fairer, stable system of international relations; for multipolarity; and for true leadership by civilization-states such as Russia.

    VVP’s 87% score was followed, by a long shot, by the Communists, with 3.9%. That is quite significant, because these 91% represent a total rejection of the globalist Davos/Great Reset plutocratic “future” envisioned by the 0.001%.

    Imagine how popular a US president would be if he won three wars in succession while significantly increasing life expectancy and per capita income as well as restoring the prestige and morale of the nation. Clown World’s claims that Putin is a dictator or that his policies are unpopular with Russia are nothing more than its usual inversion of the truth, just as the idea that Ukraine and NATO are “fighting for democracy” is totally risible in light of the Kiev regime’s cancellation of the presidential elections that were scheduled later this month, on March 31st.

      I honestly cannot make any sense of this post. It’s as if I speak a different language than this.

      But, your comment, Ghost, that everything is fake, is dangerously close to the truth. Unfortunately, the world outside turns without you or I. Would that I could put out a piece of lathe stick and stop it turning so.

      Moscow today. Whose responsible? A lot of Tweeters tweaking the US because their evidence is a state department warning to US citizens several days ago. That’s in no way a direct line, and any reasonable man knows it. Show me a CIA op where 100 people get shot like fish in a barrel. The US agencies are not the likely suspects, as much as we all dislike them.

      Ukraine. Why would an armed belligerent with armies in the field switch over to outright terrorist killing? It seems a leap. Are there armed terrorist NGOs in Ukraine? Not that we know of. Ukraine has great motive, but no prior methods like this. A pipeline ain’t a theater full of rock fans. Hell, half those rock fans probably oppose Putin.

      Putin himself. Interesting and not to be ruled out. He was KGB and their oft time past targets are Russian citizens. What would his goal be? False Flag? Watch his words in the next day or so and see if it doesn’t fit.

      If you say “Nazis” I’ma slap you sensible.

      Chechnya? Ok, getting hotter. Muslims do this shit daily. They have the motivation and right now fingers will be pointing everywhere besides them. They have a history of this kind of attack.

      Use your logic, pilgrims.

        “Remove the scale from your eyes”

        Casey, it is very difficult to find any truth in this country now.
        The US.
        The more you dig the more lies you find.
        With an occasional nugget of truth.
        We know this is true and we see the fact every dam day.
        So we can’t rely on the old way to find truth and have to find new ways.
        I’m a lifelong patriot and a winter soldier and my family goes way back.
        It pains me great to see what this country has become, and in seemingly so brief a period.
        But we haven’t seen the worst yet.
        Not by a long shot.

        I have no advice other than the stuff I mention all the time.
        It’s impossible to be more specific.
        Buffer your SELF in all ways as best as you can.
        Notice I said self.
        Not spouse. Not kids. Not family. Not friends.
        Because, at the end of the day that is all you really have.
        I hate to be so cold, so forthright.
        But above all, I believe in the truth.
        Without truth nothing else matters.
        And that’s where we’re at….lives based in truth and surrounded in untruths.
        Your closest associate can be turned against you in a blink and you won’t even know it.

        All of the little things I have mentioned here over the years are coming true each day.
        The one about living like a criminal or an outlaw.
        Well, in many ways, right now all of us are treated as criminals.
        More so as time passes.
        When your money becomes worthless will you trade a belonging for a loaf of bread, in violation of the law? Yes, you will become an outlaw, maybe you already are?

        You will become many things that you never imagined you would as this criminal gov’t becomes more and more enveloping.
        To your advantage, nothing is more inefficient than the US gov’t.
        It is mostly blind, deaf, and dumb, but not completely and you never know when it is focused on you. It is pretty easy to stay out of it’s way and out of it’s sight.

        Once more.
        I don’t give one dam about things outside my sphere.
        At this very second my door could be kicked in, my mutt shot, and me beaten and caged indefinitely. That is a possibility that we all know is true and it’s scary to know it. But we DO know it and we can do what we can to not encourage it to some extent.

        What is scarier, and most likely to happen toy you, a foreign entity lobbing a nuke from 8k miles away and vaporizing you instantly, or being cuffed and forced to watch your wife beaten and killed?

        Sip your suds and ponder that, if you dare.
        I’m gonna pop a top in about 10 mins. Cheers!

        • Casey Klahn March 22, 2024, 4:42 PM

          I toldya it was muzzies. Damn it feels goo to be OG.

          • ghostsniper March 22, 2024, 5:27 PM

            This is too easy.
            I don’t know if Clown World will try to blame it on the Palestinian Liberation Organization, the Irish Republican Army, or rogue Ukrainian commandos, but everyone knows it’s NATO. What they’re expecting to accomplish, I have no idea, but no amount of special forces operations are going to save the Kiev regime.

            The US and UK embassies warned two weeks ago about such an attack by ‘extremists’ at a crowded venue.

            However could they have known? From whence did these “extremists” come? They might as well have simply announced that it was a joint CIA-MI6 operation.

            • Casey Klahn March 23, 2024, 11:41 AM

              I can agree that the CIA and MI-5/MI-6 will conduct high level assassinations, but I can’t think of an example of a mass murder in broad daylight by gunmen (with beards) done by spies from these outfits. But I recall Chechnya doing this exact thing, and I recall how the Spetznaz got their rocks off gassing civilians as not collateral damage but as fuck you damage see if they ever do this shit again. Well, it’s been awhile but here it is again: Muzzies.

              Are Muzzies supported by the CIA? I suppose sometimes in limited cases. Maybe in Garland, TX that time (Comic Book Expo). It’s not proven but highly suspicious.

              Ghostie, if you tell me you took a logic class in college I’ll buy you a half rack of Bud Light and ship it. However, if you did take it – you cruised it asleep. Brits and US warned of the threat in Moscow? OK, fine. Did China, Azerbaijan, or Russia put out the same warning? How abut Ireland? You don’t know, and the fact that a couple Western countries issued warnings is in no way a direct line of guilt.

              Try to avoid blaming the guys you hate the most. It isn’t logical or smart, and I know you got mechanical smarts OTA.

              • ghostsniper March 23, 2024, 12:26 PM

                Hamm’s 16 oz cans.
                Never Bud again. lol
                (unless it’s free lol)

                I did only as much college as I had to get me to where I was going.
                So, by limiting my exposure to those communist slants, yes I did take a logic course.

                This one is unraveling much faster than I expected. Like Nordstream, there will never be 100% conclusive evidence, but already there is maybe 75% it was US gov’t oriented.

                As IRL, it helps to eliminate, one by one, all of the negative things on the internet. Only review trusted-proven sources.

          • azlibertarian March 22, 2024, 5:53 PM

            Gee. After the 2008 attack on the Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai, by Islamic terrorists, after the 2011, 2015, and 2020 attacks on the Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris, by Islamic terrorists, after the 2015 attacks on Paris nightclub (and other targets), by Islamic terrorists, after the 2016 attack on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, by an Islamic terrorist, after Beslan, after San Bernadino, after Barcelona–each by Islamic terrorists, for crying out loud after a dance party in Israel only last fall on and on and on again…..

            ….why is it a surprise that the most likely suspects here are Islamic? Let’s not forget that ISIS has claimed responsibity.

            Occam’s Razor, people.

            • ghostsniper March 22, 2024, 7:28 PM

              WHO said ISIS claimed responsibility, the same people that claimed biden got more votes than obammy?

              What’s it gonna take?
              See here.

              • azlibertarian March 23, 2024, 11:55 AM

                Ghost asked….
                “WHO said ISIS claimed responsibility…..”

                Here are just a few from my search on the question….
                Al Jazerra

                It is absolutely possible for each of these news organizations to be citing the same original source of the information. But in this case, unlike the various thoughts on the 2016 vote count, it seems to be widely accepted that, as they have admitted, ISIS (the ISIS-K variant, specifically) is responsible here.

                • ghostsniper March 23, 2024, 12:27 PM

                  Those sources.
                  I’m disappointed.

  • ghostsniper March 22, 2024, 1:00 PM

    It’s Just A Roomah
    The original Poaster put out that he worked in Australia for the Commonwealth Bank of Australia. That’s the BIGGEST bank in Australia, with a valuation of 1,252 BILLION dollars. He, by his own admission, is pretty high up in the bank hierarchy. Because of this, he was briefed that there was a planned “cyber-attack” that was going to be taking down the ENTIRITY of the worlds Banks as part of “The Great Reset” at the BEGINNING OF JULY OF THIS YEAR. This being to introduce the whole “You ain’t owning shit, and we don’t give a fuck if you’re happy or not, as we own your collective asses.” action that they’ve been talking about for the past few years.


  • DT March 22, 2024, 4:06 PM

    If Putin is truly an anti-globalist – and his actions seem to support that – he most certainly wouldn’t want the US to fall totally under the globalist’s spell (close but we’re not there yet as evidenced by this site, other similar sites, and a few other tell-tales – we still have what guns didn’t fall overboard). Such a collapse of the US would leave Russia against the world and THAT will be the final battle for One World Order.

    Putin vs Biden? I’d vote Putin (and FJB needs a translator himself) but I think they both have an equal probability (0%) of being on the actual ticket though. I’m not convinced DJT will be on the ticket either.

  • tevildo March 22, 2024, 4:25 PM

    Dictators don’t want you to believe _something_, they want you to believe _nothing_.

      I’ve seen some of the warnings. Internet/cell phone outages? It’s a friggin shadow.
      Oh, no! Save us.

      • ghostsniper March 23, 2024, 6:13 PM

        My wife ordered 2 pairs of eclipse glasses from amazon and they arrived this afternoon.
        Cheep, thin cardboard, with black film lenses.
        I put one on and looked at the very bright LED ceiling lamp over the kitchen sink.
        Couldn’t see shit. Completely black.
        I thought, WTF, are these things junk.
        This was about 5pm and the sun was low in the west so I stepped out on the back porch and ta-daa! There it was, bigger’n Stuttgart, and bold orange. My impression is that the lenses block the light we see but let through the light we don’t see. Does that make sense? Guess I just have to wait til the 8th to find out what it all means.

        • DT March 24, 2024, 3:57 PM

          They’re like welders glasses (and strong welders glasses are probably acceptable. Check though before doing so). They just greatly lower the intensity. If you had seen even a glimmer of the LED light, they wouldn’t be good enough to look at the sun.

          This eclipse is early afternoon depending on the time zone (3:30PM Eastern time if I recall)
          I’ve gotten good eclipse pictures from the last two with a special solar filter on my Nikon DSLR. Those filters always seem to go up in price just before an eclipse.

          Next one in US is 2044 – mostly in north central Montana.

          Strong solar flare. Possible strong northern lights in mid central CONUS tonight. Also full moon which won’t help visibility.

    According to a report from research firm DataReportal, U.S. Android owners spent an average of 4 hours, 19 minutes on their phones each day last year.


    My cell sits on a little stand on the credenza behind me and I rarely give it attention.
    Few days ago it rang, I looked, it was spam, I reached over and hit the button to blacken the screen.
    Last time I actually used it was probably more than a month ago, dunno. It’s just not a thing. One more thing I jam in a pocket when I head down the road. I bought it, it don’t own me.

    Oh yeah, it’s a big assed Samsung Tracfone I bought on QVC a few years ago for about $120. Got one for my wife too. I pay about $100 a year to have it loaded with minutes, txts, etc. Stopped paying by the month more than 10 years ago.

    I have 2 27″ monitors on my 2 desktop computers, why would I want to look at a tiny little cell screen? shrug
