Stremousov's demise is too timely to be a coincidence. There is some very fishy shit going on. I can't believe all of this is happening. It is a nightmare. Russia was on the offensive 8 months ago, doing great making serious gains. But now this? I can't believe it. The only answer is that Putin and posse are working for the globalists. I'm so disappointed. I really wanted to believe that there was hope left on the planet.

As an expression attributed to the Russian prime-minister in the nineties, later Russian ambassador to Ukraine Viktor Chernomyrdin says "никогда такого не было и вот опять" (it never happened before and here it goes again). Remember killings of all the charismatic Donbass uprising leaders back in 2014 - 2015? Mozgovoy, Bednov, Ischenko, Zakharchenko - then their deaths were blamed on Ukrainian special operations perpetrators. Now with Stremousov they decided to blame it on road accident, but I agree with you, timing of this death is too perfect to leave any room for a chance. I also agree with you on another, more important point. The situation is particularly depressing because with Russia serving globalist interests we are losing perhaps the last hope for the world.

"The situation is particularly depressing because with Russia serving globalist interests we are losing perhaps the last hope for the world."

Yes indeed. At least Russia is the largest country on the planet. Plenty of space there to find a little corner and live far from the mess should push come to shove.

Yes and the last thing Russia needs is more land i.e. in Ukraine. It needs to develop and modernize its economy at high speed, total focus. It needs its young people not kill them stupidly in some Globalist War to subjugate the World population. There are still a lot of old decrepit, cement head idiots around who think land is the big thing. Sorry, it ain't. Tech is, a highly trained work force. A bustling high energy economy. A rational monetary policy (which Russia lacks). That's what counts. Tiny little volcanic island Japan has a PPP GDP 30% higher than giant Russia. There are some real idiots running Russia. But then again it still appears they are under the Yoke of Davos.

Nonsense. You're advocating the globalist ideology. Land is THE essential requirement for liberty. An individual who does not at least have the option of living directly off the land, and the skills to do so, is a slave. And the "tech" economy and "highly trained workforce" is the Borg future that the globalists are installing. The inevitable result of the progression of the tech economy is the absolute end of individual liberty, humanity reduced to a colony of large ants.

You're talking primitivism. That's a whole other topic nothing to do with the Nationalism of which I'm talking about. I know primitivism, I've done it in my younger days, and I rather enjoyed it, being young & healthy but I wouldn't want to do it now. Problem with that is you would have to cull 90% of the human population to begin with, which is more of globalist Malthusian ideology than anything is. So just one country, say North Korea under dictator Kim, doesn't go along with that plan, then it ends. Your nice "individual liberty" will be crushed under the tracks of North Korean tanks. All you would create is a return to industrialization with all the problems that is. Rather than gradually evolve industrial civilization into a more humane and environmentally healthy one. Entirely doable using the surpluses of industrialization.

That's the standard dismissal of liberty. It's sad to see such miniscule respect for humanity that you think soulless collectivism is preferable to liberty, and that free people would not prosper. Sure, people would need to rediscover lost self-empowerment and personal responsibility, but you're saying they can't.

Industrialization vs primitivism has nothing to do with it. You're saying free people can't voluntarily cooperate to produce material goods? Complete nonsense.

Let's be happy as livestock, because that's the best we can do, right? Tearing down the fences and letting people find out who they really are is too scary.

Individual views on this topic are a direct reflection of who we see when we look in a mirror. Obviously, people who see only a dependent, insecure, materialist personality will argue that collectivism is the only way. Those who see the manifestation of an immortal soul, or at least have some sense of it, will never give up their sovereignty. This is the essence of the perpetual spiritual battle that seems to be central to human existence on this planet.

Agree, the killing of Donbass leaders is far too big to be the work of the SBU alone. That would mean the Russian military and FSB are totally incompetent, and I don't buy that. The media reports of the Stremousov death reek of a coverup.

That "last hope for the world" idea seems to ignore history, though. If you understand who the 'Bolsheviks' were/are, and recognize that Russia still is under the complete control of Western elites, evidenced by their Rothschild central bank, Rockefeller medical system, and domination of the economy by Jewish billionaires, same as in the West, how was it ever a possibility that Russia was fighting for humanity against the Western elites?

The idea of Russia as the "last hope for the world" is too complicated of a topic to discuss in a comment response to a comment... For one reason or another many people, myself included, do see it in such light.

Granted, it's a complicated topic, and having not been to Russia myself, I'm not gonna pretend to be an expert on its people now. But just looking at the power structures, and the Rothschild/Rockefeller control across the board, same as in Western countries, I think a lot of people are in denial, somewhat the same as the Trumpists here.

Now that I think about it, what ever gave me the idea that Russia was the last hope for the world? She was the only one left I suppose, to hope for. Well, it ain't happening.

You seriously think you can have an industrial society based on wind & solar power? That's what they are doing. That means heavy industry is finished or moves to China. You can do electronics, if you can import the heavy industrial goods from China. They may like some degree of digital tech, mainly for control and subjugation of the peasants. But that is just called a techno-feudal system and it is still a deindustrialized system.

You really think you can have an advanced technological civilization based on wind & solar power, a population of 1-2B which they REALLY are pushing for, and an impoverished peasantry who can barely afford to eat. You realize the only reason high tech exists is because of the giant market, a market driven by the middle class buying electronics.

Nope, Sarah is onto what's really happening.

Who are the primary backers of the 'climate change' BS and the 'green agenda', from inception?

The Rockefeller Foundation, and its many industrialist allies; that's who.

You are confusing a radical economic restructuring that immensely benefits the richest industrialists with "deindustrialization".

Granted, there's an aspect to the agenda that could be called a "deindustrialization of competitors", as we can clearly see an organized, systematic elimination of small and medium-sized businesses and farms and all of that market share going to the billionare class businesses.

I never believed for a minute that the Rockefeller industrialists intend to replace petroleum energy with wind & solar. I know the solar industry very well, and there's simply no investment in the infrastructure that would be necessary. It's all just one of the many massive cons to further rob & enslave the sleeping human population. The legal changes that are taking place under the guise of 'climate change' reveal the true agenda. It's all about the oligarchy awarding themselves legal ownership of all of nature, down to the last blade of grass, as the legal 'stewards', to 'protect' it from us. It's the wholesale theft of everything there is that can be stolen.

I think people still do not grasp the scale of the war we’re in. Russia is at war with “NATO” a.k.a. the anglo empire, and the empire wants to destroy Russia. Russia has already destroyed an army of 500,000 men in half a year. That is horrible but this is the scale of the war. Russia needs to plan for the long haul. Then it will win on the economic and diplomatic level. (And by diplomatic I mean primarily the contacts to the non-“western” world.)

The US/NATO in fact - desired Russia to invade Ukraine. That's why they did the 2014 CIA/Nazi Coup, and why they then rejected every diplomatic offramp Russia offered, before their entry into the Ukrainian Civil War, and since.

What is interesting in this whole situation with Kherson is that Russian society was overwhelmingly for defending the city even at the cost of high military losses. This appeared to be a very principled question for most - if we declared Kherson to be the territory of Russian Federation, how and why should we give it up without a fight, especially if retaking it will require much higher sacrifices than defending it? Yet, Russian authorities decided to go against the grain and to disregard public opinion hoping that propaganda will take care of the minds of the people as it did before, in 2014, when constant flow of concessions and retreats by Russia was presented as "Putin's cunning plan" (ХПП - хитрый план Путина). How well this plan worked that led to creating out of Ukraine a formidable anti-Russian force that was given 8 years to turn Russia supporters there into Russia haters and to build a strong, motivated and well armed military. But, the more I look at the situation the more I'm convinced that this was actually THE plan that Putin executed meticulously and delivered us a fratricidal war perfectly on cue when it was desperately needed by certain global forces. I don't want to go into much detail here. If you are interested in my take on the big picture analysis of the situation, have a look my post on this subject, Substack says it is a 6 minutes read:

There I also posted link to a video interview by Studio Rubezh of a Russian businessmen industrialist, Vladimir Boglaev, that was recorded on the day of invasion, 02/24/2022. This video was only translated to English couple of days ago. Looking back, this interview had a lot of foresight into the situation the way it has developed since.

"Putin's cunning plan" (ХПП - хитрый план Путина)"

^^ This very much. My Russian relatives still believe there is a "plan". This comes after repeated tries on my end to get them to see the bigger picture. Just like Trump's final days in office, when he had his last chance to stop the 2020 election steal and carry out the insurrection act, he did nothing and everyone said "trust the plan!" "just wait a little longer, there is a plan!" I think we know how that turned out. The real plan is to keep the people complacent, to trick us into thinking that help is just around the corner. Before we know it, we will have walked into our demise and there is no escape.

"How well this plan worked that led to creating out of Ukraine a formidable anti-Russian force that was given 8 years to turn Russia supporters there into Russia haters and to build a strong, motivated and well armed military.

I was just thinking this yesterday. I'm beginning to think this was the plan all along. So many questions without justifiable answers on Russia's part that only begin to make sense when you consider that this may have been the plan since 2014.

As many intelligent people have already said, when you begin to see Putin as an agent of the Great Reset, then all of his nonsensical actions start to make sense.

As awful as that picture is, to me it's the only thing that makes sense.

But I wouldn't call it "Putin's plan". Putin was a nobody, and was obviously picked by the real people in power because they felt they could trust him to do their bidding. I think this plan is way above Putin's control. When we look around the world, we see the 'elected' leaders everywhere betraying their people in service to the globalists, including in Russia.

I don't often agree with Scott Ritter's opinion, but here I do. Call this a hunch. Like I strongly suspected in July - August that Kherson is going to be given back, I have a strong hunch that active phase of this war will be suspended by mid-spring next year (not ended, but suspended) as tiredness of war will grow dramatically in Russia, Ukraine and Europe and in order to keep the situation under control active phase will be paused. Each side will declare itself a winner, but angry rhetoric toward Russia will continue, meanwhile Russia is going to continue standing with extended hand, using other hand for wiping spit of her face, saying it is always ready for negotiations with no preconditions.

I've had respect for Ritter since his truth-telling way back preceding the Iraq 'WMD' invasion. But I think with this war he's totally invested in the mainstream narrative of what's motivating the players, and he's ignoring the massive context of the 'great reset' agenda and Russia's part in it. If the Russian government is united and committed to winning this war as soon as possible, then I'd mostly agree with his analysis. But there's just too much evidence that something else is happening. For one thing, Ritter never mentions the people who he knows will be slaughtered as soon as Russian forces retreat. He pretends that Russia can just come back a month later and the damage is undone. The reality is that once Russia abandons these areas, there will be nothing to come back to, and the damage can never be undone. Once you abandon the people you claimed you were there to protect, there is no 'victory' possible.

He is indeed totally wrapped up in the analyses put forth by the two mainstreams, both the US and Russian mainstream media, reflecting the perspectives of the respective ruling elites which dominate them.

Expand full comment

I agree with much of the sentiment in the Russian editorials.

I listened to about 40 minutes of the podcast, but had to turn it off in frustration because of not one mention of what is obviously the biggest issue with this surrender of Kherson.

There was just a referendum two months ago for the people of Kherson to join Russia, and now Russia pulls out without a fight, knowing that all of the people who remain there (even a "mandatory" evacuation never removes everyone) will be slaughtered, and all of the property of those who fled will be destroyed. This is a massive betrayal of the people of Kherson, and makes Russia directly complicit in the slaughter of those who for whatever reason couldn't or didn't leave. This is not a small detail; it should've been the #1 issue, but obviously isn't.

Granted, maybe it was getting difficult to hold the territory, because of the months-long paralysis of the Russian military effort as NATO takes over and arms the Ukraine side, but it will be many times more difficult to ever cross the river again. So, the unspoken revelation with this surrender is the abandonment of any plans that may have existed to take Niklolaev and Odessa. And if Ukraine keeps Odessa, then Ukraine becoming fully NATOized is assured, and Russia will lose even control of the Black Sea.

It seems that Dugin sees what's happening. This is a betrayal of the Russian people of the highest order. No wonder Dugin wasn't safe in Moscow.

And I'm curious why I haven't seen any comments from Kadyrov about this. Will he be the next patriot to fall at the hands of the FSB?

Expand full comment

Kadyrov is part of the Mafia. He represents a certain faction there, but he is a part of the larger circle called "siloviki" (high ranking law enforcement and military) that hold as much responsibility for the lackluster SMO as the highest political echelon. He is safe, no worries.

Expand full comment

I don't know much about his background, although what you say makes sense. It's just that he's been openly critical of SMO 'mistakes' previously, so it seems odd to not see criticism from him now.

Expand full comment

Much stronger and much more founded criticism of the SMO comes from people like army special operations ret. colonel Kvachkov who spent 8 years in jail for organizing "armed revolt" against authorities, from FSB ret. colonel Girkin (Strelkov) that is now silenced by being in the trenches and many other people of whom most of the Western observers simply don't know. Kadyrov while criticizing knows where the boundaries are and doesn't overstep them. Despite looking otherwise, he is very skilled at playing political games. Still, I would rather see people like Kadyrov closer to power than people like Shoygu whom people in Russia call the "laminate marshall" (don't ask me why), that was appointed to be a minister of defense without spending a day in the army before that. For some reason he was able to avoid draft in 1977 after finishing his studies at the Krasnoyarsk Polytechnic Institute.

Hi Edward,

The little issue of if the Russian military had to take the injection to which you got a lot of flack from independent media still lingers in my head.

I call it little because the bigger picture I see is even more dire...

I have an uneasy feeling about the direction of this war. Much that I understand that the Russian speaking peoples of Donbass, the Lugansk People's Republic, the Donetsk People's Republic and Crimea want to be incorporated with the Russian Federation, the extension of the war only is serving the creation of the NWO.

The purposely controlled destruction of the west is on going without any real resistance...the 'war' in Ukraine is a perfect cover for this.

Sanctions, fuel supply, industry, food supply etc all are collapsing.

Build back better...

Also Russia is still going ahead with the Agenda 2030 sustainable development goals...

Looks like a controlled opposition to me...

What if a small group of world leaders were to conclude that the principal risk to the Earth comes from the actions of the rich countries? And if the world is to survive, those rich countries would have to sign an agreement reducing their impact on the environment. Will they do it? The group’s conclusion is ‘no’. The rich countries won’t do it. They won’t change. So, in order to save the planet, the group decides: Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” [1]

None of this should come as a surprise. Serious Russian analysts were demanding a retreat to defensible lines on the left bank to avoid another Stalingrad ever since Ukraine regained the operational momentum during the Kharkiv counteroffensive . And Surovikin's appointment was the appointment of an actual general (albeit a psychopath) who understands operational rationale, not a braindead yes-man ala Shoigu. If anything the AFU may have deliberately slowed the pace of advance to let the Russians withdraw in good order, which _might_ indicate Zelenskiy/Biden et al do still have some regard for Putin saving face.
