"I don’t know why Moscow and the Collective West are arch-enemies—they’re so similar.

Just my words to everybody who wants to hear them. I never will understand why Russia and the west is on war - they are following the same agenda.

Lovely puppets. It is a pity that I can't smuggle one to Germany because of the sanctions.

Kooka, there is no real war between Moscow and the West, but if Putin plays his position too meekly - the West would mercilessly get rid of him.

To me the most plausible explanation is this:

imagine the world as Chicago and a mafia in its heyday. Chicago is run by a few powerful players (mafia families) who have the city split into districts where they run their organized crime. Although rules, territories, pecking orders are set, these players are only human - they are greedy, petty, jealous etc. So fight over Ukraine is not real war between West & Russia, but merely a mafia turf war partly about Ukraine but more importantly about abundance of Russian resources.

Regardless of their quarrels one thing these players fully agree on - regular folk are useless eaters who have to be kept on a short leash and exploited as much as possible. That is why West, Zelensky or Putin could not care less how many Ukrainians or Russians or eventually Poles or others die in this skirmish. That is why all terrible things are happening all over the world at the same time, at the same pace - CBDC, vax, green madness and ESGs, mass migration etc.

This Chicago mafia allegory is almost certainly closer to reality than any other description. There's nothing really to add or remove, except maybe that mafia or any organized crime is state-sponsored and sanctioned. There is a bigger game at play, and the players of that game are playing the organized crime, intelligence (C.I.A., F.B.I. M.I.5/6, etc.), attorneys and law courts like the pawns and chess pieces they really are. You're bang-on the money about what regular folk mean to them. We're just witless NPCs, automatons incapable of agency that they farm for taxation revenue but who'll throw their own bodies into the fire on command.

The more you think about it, the more you realize that this is so, right... it's a cold eye-opener we're experiencing. In a way it's good to have this eye-opener, but at the same time useless if there is nothing we can do to change things. To me it seems that self-destruction is built in the human, by means of the mental disorders of psychopathy and neurosis. It's just a matter of when, not if, this self-destruction takes place. It's really too bad that psychopaths can exert such pressure on 'normal' people to do their bidding. What would be the driver there...? Fear? Money? Status? Hoping to be one of the boys? Laziness? I mean, it would be so easy to resist the psychopathic impetus, no? Seems to me, but who am I to speak for those that are under the spell of the psychopathic mindset. Therefore, recognizing and staying out of the cross-fires is the best you can do, under the acknowledged circumstances. Thanks for Riley's efforts, and grateful for the insightful comments by the contributors here. :-)

You can try to game the zoo rules. You must be creative though. Use their prison rules against them. It's effort, but it works, at least a bit.

E.g. avoid taxes, buy local, avoid Amazon, use wellfare even if you don't need it... game the system, baby

The masses have always been an exploitable resource for the unrepentant 'elites'. That phenomenon is the basis for the "masses = slave cattle" meme, and is more than apt.

That said, any one of us could effect significant changes if we were willing to do the needful. It's instructive that so few of us do our own FBI has to step in and provide incentives and support to even meet their quotas.

But another more accessible change you can make with the eye-opener is to adjust your level of collaboration with the regime, whatever that looks like for you.

There is less of that in Russia for sure (same applies to the so-called muslim world BTW), but only less. Regardless of how you look at this, it should not delude you into excusing Russia/Putin from everything else. Even within Russia itself people are blinded by ravaging patriotisms (because of the war in Ukraine) and willfully explain away everything that unequivocally proves that Putin is part of the global "Chicago" cartel.

Klim,

It doesn't delude me into excusing anything about Poutine, be reassured, otherwise, I wouldn't be as frequently on that slavsquating substack. I am very sad that the pretense of Russia being a beacon of traditional values are overdue.

The fact is that I am, as a French, witnessing a total collapse of not just traditional values, but of our humanity. Our ruling class is pedocriminal. Have you heard for instance about the case of that judge who was selling his 12 years old daughter on the web, promising the right to sodomize her, piss on her and who is free with an electronic bracelet while his wife is still a judge? do you want the sources? Have you heard about a so-called président of our country who had been abused when he was 14 years old by a 39 years creature (was it a male or a female?). Our ruling class is truly pedocriminal like in Belgium (remeber the Dutroux affair?). I can give you a lot of proof that I am not exaggerating in any way. Now, sex is going to be teach in schools like it has stated this year in Belgium. Last year, before it has been made official, in St Étienne, 10 years old kids had been told in school, that a woman could suck the dick of a guy and lick his balls for pleasure. In Bordeaux, a trans event had been organized without the consent of the parents and when they contested, they were met by the police. I could go on and on Klim, it is now official and called EVRAS (Éducation à la Vie Relationnelle, Affective et Sexuelle) and even though most pedopsychiatrists consider it a wreckage for young minds, contesting it is an offense.

Would Russians, Belarussians accept that?

Respect.

p.s. Ida, I hate to point it out, but both Putin and Zelensky are good friends with the Chabad Lubavitch, which you probably already know too. We have to accept the dire truth that's in plain sight. It would not surprise me if Ukraine is captured by the Chabad, once leveled. All paid for with bags and bags full of money continually sucked out of EU the last few years, as "support for Ukraine". In any case, my bubble is burst on the whole Russia / BRICS development, even though they act more civilized than these braindead morons in the West with their rainbows, tranny-ism and pedo-ism. But so be it... bubbles always burst. Next!

This is such a taboo subject - which is exactly why we should attack it. With gusto, even.

Zelensky (Jewish; Ashkenazi? more than likely; Zionist? almost certainly) has done very well indeed from his engagement by Kolomoiskyi (Ashkenazi, Zionist), Victoria Nuland (Ashkenazi, Zionist) and the U.S. Deep State (many Ashkenazis, Zionists) as the treacherous toxic gnome figurehead "Defender of Ukrainian Democracy." There are now two-year old reports of a 1.4 billion dollar reward windfall for his villainy, villas in Tuscany and the exclusive Como lake, Italy, and the fact-cheka all deny it so it must be true, that he's also got property in south Florida worth tens of millions, and finally a multimillion dollar home for his parents in Israel that was purchased years ago, because nothing says "I stand with Ukraine" more emphatically than buying a luxury "life boat" in the country you really minister to.

Oh, but as per The Atlantic, February 28, 2022: "... the Ukrainian president captivates the world with his bravery ...", and The Forward, March 1, 2022: "As a Jew, it is impossible not to feel proud of the courage, dignity, and defiance shown by Zelenskyy."

Years ago, in the USA, Sen. Daniel Inouye already spoke of the shadow govt. We, people in the USA, used to only whisper to each other of this taboo subject. It was so damn taboo. Sick really, when you think about it. Now it is pretty much out in the open. In Holland, the alt media is pretty open about these skunks. The world is run by these psychopaths, and they're all doing each other's bidding. If you think that Trump the crypto-zionist is going to save you, think again. If you think Putin will save you, think again. Sure, he's got good manners and rejects the idiocy of pedo-ism and all the other insane isms, but he's in the pocket of the Ch Lub too. I had a lot of respect for Putin, and for what he has accomplished, but I am not going to delude myself anymore about his inextricable ties with the Chabad. In the USA, every new president stands in front of the AIPAC banner. That should tell you enough about this person. The USA is nothing more than the private army, the butt boy, of the Zionists and the gangster club of the Ch Lub. And that's how they are all in it together; why should they give a rat's ass about the people? People are fodder for the fights between them. Why do you think this war business drags on for so long... look at Blackrock (Fink, zionist), look at the entire military industry that the USA thrives on. How much money was sucked out of EU? Every week I saw it, bilions and billions. Just check the pedigree of Ursula von der Leyen, unchosen head of the EU Commission in Brussels. Man... it's such a sick world. And yes, it's about time we call a spade a spade.

In the 2009-10 timeframe, I foresaw the current Ukraine debacle. Setting was a funeral home. There was an exchange of a bag of money and a "golden whistle' for a dead soldier in woodland fatigues with a broken left ankle. Rules based order, NATO. The other impactful vision was a new Pearl Harbor something on par with the Bronze Age collapse involving trade, energy, mass migration and finance.. a major attack on a "Senate City." Istanbul or Rome? The next kerfluffle may be over control of Arctic trade routes and resources.

Thanks for the insights, Replenish. Interesting... could it be London with its City of London in it, a bullwark of finance where many corporations are registered? FYI, the country of Holland was recently registered in the City of London by its King Willem Alexander. NL is no longer a country, but a corporation. Its beneficiary is Mark Rutte. IMO, this move may lend a form of 'protection' against invasion to the NL, but I may be wrong - that is to say, I have not delved enough to find a satisfying answer. Probably not that protection was the intention, of course, but the real intention is not clear to me yet. All I know is that NL is now registered as a legal business entity there. That said, the USA is said to be a corporation too, but not sure where it is incorporated. DE hahaha?

" ... the country of Holland was recently registered in the City of London by its King Willem Alexander. NL is no longer a country, but a corporation."

As another FYI, most, if not all, countries have been registered, but probably more likely as corporate states rather than as corporations (apparently there is a difference, but I'll be damned if I know how or why), if not in the City of London, then with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

There's no need to read any of it. Saker was the go to blog that informed us that Putin was playing 5D chess with the West.

Thankfully, I'm still in good health, but I regret having received all the vaccines I have since I was born for all the trumped-up and bogus viral and bacteriological hazards. There is ample evidence of better health outcomes for people who have not ever received vaccines - any vaccines! For almost the entire 3-4 million years of human existence (if taken from the Australopithecine ancestor), we have not only survived but seem to have done pretty well even without the interference of Rockefeller petrochemical pharmaceutical medicine and its botched artificial modulation of immunity, and so I'm more than a little inclined to believe we don't need any vaccination - and would, more than likely, be better off without them.

They turned health into a war.

Expand full comment

Thanks for the link. I generally do agree with the writer's overall thesis, and in a way I believe it may be a generally more valid way of looking at health and disease. Life and health is not at war, nor is it under attack.

But I'm most definitely NOT in the 'viruses aren't real' (VAR) camp. I find the "never been proven" arguments to be misconceived, misunderstanding or in denial of the technical refinements of the scientific research pipeline. At best, the arguments betray insufficient appreciation of the evolution in understanding and the hierarchical nature of apprehension of phenomena as the technology applied has advanced. At worst, they are a deliberate attempt to mislead and disarm people against prospective, real attacks from engineered hazards that the criminals with the agenda of eliminating the majority and establishing total control of the rest will deploy.

On the other hand, nor do I ascribe to the viruses are (exclusively) pathogens mischaracterization either, which is promulgated by The Science™ disciples of the official narrative - the same criminals with the agenda of eliminating the majority and establishing total control of the rest. This is all simply another case of the adage that the best way to control the opposition is to lead it.

Both of these relatively recent (since COVID-19, at least as far as I've been aware) ideologically-extreme positions have arisen as components of the larger program to corral resistance to enforced medical procedures into either The Science™, or into the VAR extremes, and the associated imbuing of adherents with religious zeal is most revealing, as it is, quite frankly, disgusting.

Expand full comment

Actually there's one argument that made the case for me.

They ran the viral culture experiment with and without virus.

They got the same results. It's from the strong antibiotics and antifungals they use to clean the culture and "isolate" the virus. Guess what looks like spiky viruses? Dead cells. Sometimes they call them exosomes too.

Anyway I'm not worried about it either way. Even if viruses do exist, I've yet to see any of them proven to be deadly as claimed. In fact they have been used to cover up for other issues, like polio for DDT.

One day we will be able to talk about it without being shut out, just like they do with carbon climate change and other rigged fields.

Expand full comment

You've got a positive, fair -minded attitude which is laudable.

"They ran the viral culture experiment with and without virus."

I won't press you on this, but just bear in mind that, without knowing the particulars of the "viral culture experiment" you're referring to, there's almost certainly not a single lab in the world that needs to "culture" a virus in order to be able to identify it or the traces of viral presence, activity, and the consequences of it. Unfortunately, terminology such as "culture" is borrowed from bacteriology, and bacteria, which are forms of life and can be cultured, with colonies of differently-colored bacteria growing on agar gel, for example from a sample of saliva (I've even done it myself, many years ago). Give the bacteria suitable support including their nutritional requirements and growth medium, and culturing is possible. However, with viruses, things are not in any way as simple and straightforward. First of all, it's not even clear, nor unequivocal that viruses are living things, by various definitions of the term 'life', nor that they are a discrete lifeform. They don't even eat, for Pete's sake, and they're even more obligatorily parasitical than the most hopelessly-dependent parasite. The consequence is that different thinking, frames of reference, and approaches are required when trying to get a handle on them.

I think of viruses as a broad class of intercellular communications mechanisms - it's a functional definition, rather than a species definition. It's no doubt ultimately an insufficient definition to satisfy all the contingencies that research in the phenomena would encounter, but I'm neither a virologist nor even a microbiologist of any accomplishment or description (I'm not even a biologist, heck, I'm not even employed in any way!). I'm just this dude on the interwebs.

Anyway, I really don't want this to spin off into a broader and arguably peripheral microbiological discussion. But I do want to say that I agree with your non-fanatical stance. The bottom line is that, just like so much or all that we're being faced with, we just don't fundamentally, comprehensively know nor can we know, so we shouldn't be too belligerent, especially about ideologically-appropriated topics.

One must admit, it's so easy to play along the system: just chill out, get socialist subsidies, watch Netflix all day long, plastic-card buy on Amazon, follow the rules and don't think too much. Life is founded on the minimum-effort principle. It's not reasonable to expect from a species what's beyond its average ability.

There are several kinds of intelligence. One of them is abstract intelligence (perhaps the purest kind), another one is practical intelligence. We, the -let's say- red pilled ones, may -arguably- be closer to the first, whereas the blue pilled are closer to the second. But red pilled guys only win in movies (geared to the blue pilled). Maybe at the end of the day practical intelligence is the best strategy, because the sad truth is, the practicals tend to be happier, in general, than the abstracts; and there is only one life to be lived, unless you're one of those fortunate believers.

I had been wondering for some time why many, if not most people, seem to be empty shells.

I was well aware of the de-humanising impact of MSM intellectual garbage and moral sewerage on unsuspecting human souls.

I had not realised the extent to which Netflix addiction might have progressively removed the stuffing from many people, reducing them to empty shells, who need to feed their addiction to fill the emptiness.

These people might appear to be happy, but what is true happiness?

For the addict it is an unlimited drug supply.

Looky looky! The co-founder and first CEO of Netflix was Marc Bernays Randolph, is directly related to Edward Bernays, and hence also to Sigmund Freud, both of whom developed paradigms of psychology and propaganda, for examination and exploitation of the masses!

This, of course, is all purely coincidental.

IMHO, Netflix and its derivatives (Prime video, Disney plus, HBO, etc.) are the epitome, the ultimate milestone -this far- of mass brainwashing and shell-emptying, but I believe the process begun, in the audiovisual sphere, way earlier than that, probably with Hollywood.

Happiness is hard to define and impossible to measure (psychologists prefer the term "self well being", IIRC), though I guess most people nowadays have a more or less uniform, intuitive yet abstract notion of what it means. And then again, there are different kinds of intelligence...

So what's real happiness/intelligence and who is really happy/intelligent?

Perhaps it is best to just enjoy life as much as possible regardless, as it is short.

Many people's apparently flimsy definition of happiness is concerning though.

Are they really happy, or just making the most of the scraps of life?

What defines their happiness?

Many financially comfortable people and supposedly intelligent professionals and academics, seem to be trapped in some kind of vacuum, incapable of any significant independent thought or moral judgement.

I really appreciate your rendering of the general state of mind or psyche of society. It's a functional way to regard it.

"Maybe at the end of the day practical intelligence is the best strategy, because the sad truth is, the practicals tend to be happier, in general, than the abstracts ..."

While I agree with your point, at least I do if we were to set 'happiness' as the metric. But I've personally long abandoned the assignment of 'happiness' as the primary criterion, or even any effectual measure of worth for an existence and/or a life well-lived, nor especially for the thinking, sovereign individual who would presume agency in the world. Animals/humans can be drugged into a blithely-contented state - a-la Brave New World - and remain 'happy' even when their immediate environment is ablaze and extinction from fiery dissolution is upon them. Pain itself can readily be palliated.

Expand full comment

I think I understand what you mean. "A life well-lived" suggests to me satisfaction with our own actions, with the course we've given to our life, a moral rectitude of some sort, a clean conscience, probably often involving pain, sacrifice and sufferance; a kind of epicureanism if you want, as opposed to the Netflix-style sheer hedonism. But in the end, are they not all aimed to achieve or improve our self well being? The question becomes philosophical beyond my abilities, I must confess. And spiritual, too. Very often I wish I were plain brainless, so I could get easily numbed; but then something inside me says: "How could you value and appreciate happiness if you have not known sorrow and wretchedness?" Perhaps it all boils down to what we can think of ourselves in our deathbed, but by then, who cares? That's why I mention spirituality.

Anyway, as I say, this is too complicated. I don't even know what I think about it.

You and I have struck a first blow. I haven't worked for four years so that I won't incur an income tax liability. But that also means I haven't received more transnational financier-banker corporate owners' central bank phony money to buy more of the crap from the government's transnational financier-banker corporate owner bosses' factories, so the owners won't make profits and the governments won't skim more taxes from the sale of those useless goods.

You and I are doing what we should be doing, and what we all should have been doing 40, 50, 60, 100 years ago, when collectively we could have done so and it really would have made a difference. I fear the opportunity to have realized this, and acted accordingly, as meaningfully as this truly would have been, has long passed, alas, and what we have coming to us now might be unavoidable.

This from a recent article by Moneycircus ( https://moneycircus.substack.com/p/crisis-update-central-banks-ready ):

" ... the centuries-old class system, in which the populace was kept in line with crumbs from the rulers' table.

Some got a few more, others a lot less. The number of crumbs dictated your status in life, and kept you subservient to the system.

There was no material gain from dissent. What psychologists called oppositional behaviour was easily offset with political systems in which people were "nudged" by envy or fear.

The social structure was constructed on crumbs: exchanging your crumbs for new ones each year; "keeping up with the Joneses"; earning the dough to send children to a fine school to learn the inside track of crumb collecting, to network with the scions of the top crumb gatherers."

They figured-out and applied a really effective slave system a long time ago, and since then they've only just sharpened and honed their approach with applied, weaponized psychology and digital technology.

But if the Russian SMO has taught us anything it's what the great seer, sage and philosopher, Mike Tyson of The Iron, once taught us as well: everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth. Fancy-schmancy weapon systems get shredded by overwhelming artillery as thoroughly as ever a column of blunderbuss-welding fusiliers did, and high-tech mech burns just as readily as timber powder wagons.

Aux, perhaps it is remove, as well as prevent from occurring again. Removing is one thing, but how do you prevent this criminal syndicate from aggregating again? (unless you mean the same by 'removing.') They've been doing it for centuries. Psychopathy and neurosis are hallmarks of this bottomfeeding syndicate. How do you eradicate these traits from humanity, to cleanse it once and forgood of these parasitic members? Selection for elimination based on genetic testing? Maybe already while still in the uterus? These solutions seem too drastic, and too eugenicist to be practical. Thus, I think we're hosed, with these ever-present predators amongst us. They will always exist and attract minor varieties of psychopathic neurotics to execute their plans for them (governments and the like). Eventually, humanity as a species will be herded off the cliff by these powerful and uninspiring misfits. (Give me some hope by explaining it ain't so... :-) )

Zonder, I've enjoyed reading your comments and am grateful for your generosity in sharing them. What is more, I've got more than a hunch that you're the kind of person I could sit at a table in a pub for hours to discuss all these topics over pints of good ale - or whatever tipple, or nibble, you're most partial to.

Even were it genuinely committed and actually did accomplish the greatest good for the greatest amount of people, I am convinced that government - that is, a permanent body of professional politicians and bureaucrats in an indissoluble institution with the supreme authority over the people and resources of a land - is at best completely superfluous. More explicitly, it is a parasitic and malignant existence. Were politicians themselves moral and rational, they would understand this themselves and they would remove themselves. But they are not moral, and if they are at all rational, they most definitely are not benevolent.

There is very little scope for, and very few circumstances where the kind of governance we might expect of a government is appropriate and necessary because, by and large, a community is completely capable of spontaneous self-organisation, gathering and allocating of resources as necessary, and providing all the services that it requires to function, accordingly governance occurs naturally and does not require forced imposition. In those few occasions a dedicated company of decision-makers is required (for example, disaster mitigation, threat of hostile invasion, etc.) any viable community would make available and outfit one, then dispense with it entirely when the need has passed.

I could elaborate, but I've already hogged so much of the real estate on Riley's comments page.

Yeah, it's good to have these stimulating "conversations." But I have to stop hogging the Riley space too, and back to my own substack again. Maybe we should all surprise Slasquat with a visit to his dacha where we can have long and inspiring discussions around that lovely bbq of his... -With thanks to all for this pleasant discourse. Until we meet again. :-)

Thank you very much, Riley. I don't seem to be able to get around to reading all your articles as soon as you publish them - actually, I only read one in about ten when I do get around to reading them. But whenever I've read an article, I wonder what the hell have I been doing instead of reading your articles.

In these days of Fifth Generation Warfare, while Oceania is at war with Eurasia (Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia) and East Asia at the same time, your perspective and criticism is essential, as important almost as is oxygen. And puppies.

But Putin and Russia: what a bloody mindf@%k! I understand some rudimentary game theory, so I can make arguments for using the same dirty tricks (biomedical-surveillance, CBDC, injections, 4IR, all of that kind of ordure) as your purported 'enemies' are, but from your reporting, Russia seems to be going about it in a sneakier way; being the only adult in the room, on the one hand, and displaying the same deranged psychopathy on the other. What's the real game here? Russia must be as pwned as U.S.+U.K.+Europe are by the same transnational financier-corporation owners, because they're all playing by the same playbook. BRICS was, after all, devised by Goldman Sachs' and GS former economist Jim O’Neill, so perhaps we really shouldn't be surprised. No, what we should be is morose.

Thanks again, Riley. I'm sorry for not paying. I haven't worked since COVID-19 and the deadly genetic injection slurry mandates. When they wanted us to believe they lifted the mandates (they never really lifted the mandates, because they'll have many more shots they'll coerce us into taking when the brand new Moderna factories they're building on all continents across the world come on-line and start pumping-out new injections), it was too late. I knew enough to decide that I wouldn't be paying taxes any longer because I couldn't knowingly abet government crime by providing it with material support, nor would I be complicit in state-mediated and executed crime. That means I'm really poor.

A real patriot ... are so wise and brave ... 😇

Sarcasm? That's okay. Actually, I hope it is, because I'm definitely neither a patriot - 'my' country is a preposterous fiction, an obsequious vassal state, a Satrapy of the U.S.-NATO, its values are imbecilic, and 'my' people are even greater fools than I am - and were you to know me personally, were you familiar with me and my background, how despite everything I've done and achieved, all the places I've been, and yet I've still managed to amount to absolutely nothing, the most abjectly inconsequential non-entityimaginable, you would also know that I cannot at all, in any way, be even remotely wise.

Lovely puppies.

Yeah, Putin's Russian flavored variant of AstraZeneca's chemical slurry makes for much better clot-shots, to protect people against a virus which has never even been proven to exist. How can we refuse it? 🤣 Thanks, Riley!

My grandfather had occasion to visit Poland back in the 1950s-60s, but not Russia. He would come back home and at times would refer to us grandkids by saying "my little Sputnik". But calling a deadly vaccine "Sputnik" is an affront to Russian space exploration. Oh yes, all vaccines are deadly.

It is troubling how forgiving and uncritical of Putin some people in the West have become because of losing faith in their own clown leaders.

Expand full comment

People looking for hope do not see the writing on the wall clearly.

Rightly or wrongly, between Putin, Biden or Xi, I'm inclined to choose Putin.

Alternatively, between Russia, China or the US, I'm inclined to choose Russia.

At least I know where I stand with Putin - beware thin ice!

With Xi and Biden & Co - who knows where they stand?

The US is responsible for untold suffering and death worldwide under various pretexts.

Russia does not appear to be hell bent on world domination regardless of the human costs.

Is Putin really any worse than Xi or Biden & Co?

Is this really about Putin, Biden or Xi, or those who control them?

OK the world is controlled by evil overt and covert power players - nothing new.

Safer off the power grid.

Assuming you are in Russia Klim, and saying that even if we be careful not to skate on thin ice, we still do not know where we stand.

Years ago, a friend dragged me down the latin mass rabbit hole, on one occasion.

Thankfully I survived due to my interest in architecture, stained glass windows, art and sculpture!

When I returned to the surface, I was none the wiser about the appeal of latin masses!

I regard my friend to be an enlightened person, and attribute his inexplicable addiction to latin masses, to his Italian roots.

Reportedly, the FBI recently identified latin mass attendees, as extremists.

I tend to agree, but my perspective and the FBI's, are undoubtedly different!

Wonder if my attendance at a mass years ago was recorded, and I might be detained and questioned sometime in the future!

If you should for some inexplicable reason, engage in the extreme act of attending a latin mass, wear a credible disguise and look out for trench coats!

Interesting allusion... but thanks for the warning of both the mass and FBI!

"I don’t know why Moscow and the Collective West are arch-enemies". For me, this is the real, one and only important question in all this. Probably this enmity is just fed to the masses (with or without our leaders' awareness) to keep us distracted while the true Rulers do or devise their designs. Of course this conjecture leads to further questions (like for instance, why those designs must necessarily involve bombings, bloodshed, wars, etc?)

Since February 2022 I've been very suspicious that Covid-19 panic campaign ended just when the SMO begun, and as I've already said, I have a premonition that Disease X will begun by the end of the SMO.

Anyway, seen as Russia is as hopeless as the Col. West, I definitely need a better psychoanalist, because I should have wholly stopped being interested in Russia since Riley opened my eyes one year ago.

[EDIT] By the way, we shouldn't exclude the possibility that many of the world's governments leaders have sincerely bought into the plandemic. One of my closest relatives, an intelligent, extremely cultured and very well read man, totally fell for it and still does. And will do over and over again. As we say in my country: "fear is free".

It is indeed fascinating how the panic campaign shifted from the plandemic to the war in early 2022. In a surreal way, just like in Orwell's minutes of hate, the panic remained but was redirected. Until then, those who did not want to get experimental injections were attacked (verbally, job lost, bank account lost) - and suddenly it was Russian citizens and everything Russian. Russians, who had been working in the West like everyone else, got fired from their jobs, Covid police now visited Russians instead, later they even began confiscating some of their cars.

And if you understand why they are all doing what they're doing (because of the "current thing" on tv), you can see that most of them don't understand their fear and aggression because it's not actually "their" fear. Imagine meeting someone who's tv broke in early 2022 - if the media propaganda wouldn't be repeated everywhere in grocery stores, even in new cars, that person might not have noticed that Russians are the current enemy and be still afraid of covid skeptics!

To me, this seems like a ''Special Vaccine Operation.'' Slow-rollin' for Maximum devastation. Sweet pups, 'squat! I probably don't need to tell you, ''puppy shots'' are just as 'safe and effective' as the human iterations.

Riley is always entertaining and informative...since 'substacks' became a thing, I have had to winnow down the many that I've subscribed to...but this place hits just the right spot. Love those pups as well as the local feel. A tip of the glass to everyone.

I do have a brilliant idea Riley: why don't ask Rubber Balone to make a fundraising to save Russians children from the evil hands of WHO? He could show them his brevets collection into Mrna research, like Raoult did in France in 2020? You know, those insiders are so useful when it comes to explain the tricky psy ops to the herds... And people like them, they tell them how and what to think, this is all so convenient! You know what? They could all choke themselves with their lies and hang themselves in the closet where they come from. The only regret I have is that folks don't get the move, even the more alert. They all vote for the experts. Who paid this cloaque of thieves and murderers you think? Religious people believed in « conversions » from the state or the institutions players... They are all pointing in the same open sky digital gulag direction, and they are all in bed with WHO's technocracrats, backed by EVERY state representative, every NGO, every corporation, all the zombie propaganda, whatever they say or declare on the social media circus of operations. I'd like things goes faster now. Let them have their fucking nazo weirdos world with all their supporters. Quick. The only problem I see is that they won't leave us alone playing in the countryside with puppies, animals and trees and grass and cow and flowers. Until we destroy them. My last point is, how?
