You can almost hear the howls of laughter in the Kremlin over this one, and they're probably still laughing about it, even though it's three months after the event, and it's proof positive that in the apocalyptic atmosphere and paranoia gripping the West's Idiotocracy (Stupidocracy? Plutofoolocracy?) in its latest spasms of blockheadidity, some people at least have not lost their sense of humor. In fact, I howled with laughter to the extent that I had to have a cup of hot chai (for those of you in San Franfreakshow, Nuttyfornia, that's Russian for "tea"), which I enjoyed by drinking it through a sugar-cube, Russian-style. The only thing spoiling my mystical moment of fellowship and communion with those never-to-be-trusted-always-byzantine-Russians-and-their-evil-super-genius-criminal-mastermind-Vladimir Putin was a samovar in which to heat the tea. But I did send Mr. Putin the following friendly email:

"Dear Vlad,

Was just made aware of, and just watched your latest Christmas fun with Congressentity Maxine Waters and UN Ambassadroid Nikki Haley. What a gas! I'm still howling with laughter and I can just see the expressions on everyone's faces there when they were briefed about this one.

And yes, to answer your (politely) unspoken question, we really are for the most part that stupid here.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know I enjoyed this one immensely. Who says geopolitics can't be fun?

All the best,

Jos. F.

P.S. Hope you enjoyed the book. Let me know."

What am I talking about? Well, Mr. V.T. sent me an article in which the following articles were linked, and I have to be honest, I entirely missed these stories from Christmas season of last year, but I do want to bring them to your attention, not only so that you can laugh and enjoy a cup of hot chai with me, but also to make a serious point:

Haley's Fantasy Island: US Representative to UN Served by Russian Pranksters

Russia Invades Limpopo! How Russian Pranksters Played a US Congresswoman

Yes, the anti-Russian hysteria has become so ridiculous and so entrenched in the "minds" of the American elite - both left and right - that Russia now appears to be hacking the elections of entirely fictitious countries:

By introducing himself as "Volodymyr Groysman, Prime Minister of Ukraine, one of the pranksters started off by informing the clueless Congresswoman that President Putin has now invaded both eastern and western Ukraine, bringing his regular army into the cities of Donetsk and Lvov (Lviv).

However, what made the conversation go viral online is the caller's claim that Russia has interfered in the internal politics of Limpopo. Russian hackers, he said, broke into the server of the vote-counting system in the African country of Limpopo, and installed "their political puppet Ai Bolit" as president, "doing more damage to the poor country than they did to the US."


What made the conversation go viral was that, in fact, Limpopo is not a country but rather a river in South Africa which featured in the popular Soviet children's story, Ai Bolit written by Korney Chukovsky.

Now, it's bad enough that such galloping stupidity should be in Congress, it get's worse, for in modern Amarikuh, stupidity is truly a democratic, bi-partisan affair, and the Republithugs can be equally as wacky as the Democrooks; from the second article:

During the phone conversation, the pranksters probed Haley’s opinion about the island nation of Binomo — a fictional country located in the South China Sea not far from Vietnam, and invented by Vovan and Lexus for that occasion.

When the pranksters told Haley that the country recently proclaimed independence and that the Russians have meddled in the elections held there she immediately replied "of course they did!" The ambassador also stated that the US is aware of the situation that it will continue to monitor it closely just as Washington deals with all issues "that keep coming up in the South China Sea."

"Nikki Haley is a member of Trump’s cabinet. An ambassador to the UN holds a lot more clout in their country than on ours… It’s very funny when such a person is responsible for foreign relations in the US," Stolyarov remarked during an interview with Russian media.

The pranksters also inquired whether Haley heard about (fictional) claims made by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko about Hollywood celebrity Kevin Spacey harassing him in 2015. The ambassador replied that she wasn’t aware of this tidbit and promised to research this topic.

Now, let's stop and be serious for a moment. It's entirely possible, with today's techniques, that all this might have been entirely faked. I don't believe that, but it is remotely possible. In which case, it's a sad cultural commentary that such a joke/false flag could have any traction. That it does have traction is in indicator of just how bad - and stupid - Amairkuhn kulcher" has become.

But granting the reality of the pranks, it's an even worse commentary. High Amairikuhn officials, in one case an Ambassador to the United Nations and thus the USA's representative on the Security Council, have no clue whatsoever whether some nations even exist or not.

Why am I bothering with a story three months old? Well, first, it's funny. But at a much deeper level, it's downright frightening. Years ago, on the Byte Show with the late George Ann Hughes, I stated on more than one occasion that the "elites" of the West, and particularly in this country, in dumbing everyone down, had in fact dumbed themselves down as well. They not only surround themselves with advisors in fundamental agreement with them and thus expose themselves to nothing dissenting from their agendas, but that in surrounding themselves with such yes men for so long, they cannot think in any other way. And those "yes men" are in turn products of an increasingly "idiotized" higher education system in "quackademia."

In other words, they're stupid. Just how stupid are they? Well, listen to the linked audios and see for yourselves.

And stupidity is not a basis on which to formulate domestic or foreign policy, and it is not a basis for a sound military defense either.  Even if it is bi-partisan. Bi-partisan stupidity - especially when a thermonuclear power like Russia is concerned - is not a policy, it's just stupidity.

And American education is now a national security issue.  In the hysteria that is being ratcheted up over the Skripal case in Great Britain, the tit-for-tat expulsion of diplomats, let's make awfully sure we don't have complete nincompoops talking with Russia, because they're not stupid.

See you on the flip side...

    By shattered glass, in a room of mirrors, you see yourself in all the fragments. Narcissism doesn’t exist, only Echo looking back with a question. You can run, but you cannot hide from yourself. Who are you?

    Why bother in mapreading if the entire planet is yours targeted for plunder.
    If you see things big you don’t have to bother with micro lines that form independent countries.

    Amairikuhns can be democratic, the majority can’t point to a selected country on a world map!

    It is always good to know if it were up to Congress to point weaponry at Russia the bombs might end up on Berlin or Paris or somewhere in the Pacific but if we are really lucky maybe London!

    Seems your Generals still get taught to some degree, probably only mapreading and functionality of weaponry.

    An interesting aside?
    This is news to me! In listening to the Max Keiser Report 1209, the guest[Karl Denninger] spoke about Facebook saying that if you visit a web site that has a Facebook link and or like button; doesn’t matter if you click either one, or nothing at all, your already being observed by Facebook.

    They can even identify you and have access to your passwords etc.?
    Did I hear the guest right?
    More importantly; is he right?

    go 15:23 clicks in and listen….

    More self-inflicted embarrassment for the Dems. . . . That clever Limpopo prank reminds me of the infamous phone call two Russian comedians made to a very gullible Rep. Adam Schiff saying that they had compromising photos of Trump with Olga Buzova, a Russian model and singer. Schiff was so desperate to scandalize Trump that he fell for it hook, line and sinker.

    The Russians are not the only one’s laughing, the other party laughing is the rest of the world. When you see the likes of Killary Clinton, John Brennan, Nancy Polise and on and on we could go, then you have to come to the conclusion that they REALLY BELIEVE that we all buy the BS.
    The funny thing is also, is that they believe that WE are the dumb one’s.

    Speaking of stupid (or cunning):

    “This story started on March 24th, when Ukrainian border forces entered the Russian-flagged, Crimean-registered fishing vessel the Nord in the Sea of Azov, threatened an unarmed crew with assault weapons, and proceeded to hijack the vessel with her crew of 10 fishermen and 5 tons of fish.
    The Nord has been taken to Berdaynsk, a military installation near Mariupol. The crew members reported interrogation, and mental and physical torture and abuse by Ukrainian authorities. Initially, they were forbidden to leave the vessel that is not design for people to live on board for more than three days, and they were charged in ‘illegally crossing the border’, and other charges, like treason for becoming Russia’s citizens. The captain, 57 y.o. Vladimir Gorbenko, was taken to the SBU (a proxy for the CIA) where he was interrogated to the point of him falling dangerously ill. He was taken to a hospital in Kherson with a precursor to a heart attack. He was reportedly charged with a ‘violation of the order of entry into the occupied territory of Ukraine’, meaning Crimea, despite the fact that he had been born in the USSR on the territory of Crimea, and lived there his entire life. If convicted, the crew of the Nord could face from 5 to 15 years in jail.

    Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has demanded the Kiev authorities to grant them a consular access to the crew, which was denied.”

    The PTB are poking the bear again…

    (Ambassadroid: consider that ‘lifted’. I prefer Congresscritter to Congressenti ty [hah!].)

    I just had a thought (oh, no!): The anti-Russian hysteria is soooooooooooooo over the top (and universally-coordinated) that it could be part of TPTB counting on a counter-reaction. Create a ‘mountain’ high-enough, and when it is finally-seen as only a ‘molehill’, everybody relaxes. Kumbaya moment. (Assuming we are not truly being ‘primed’ for WWIII…)

    I really wonder who has declared UN Ambassadroid Nimrata “Nikki” Haley (née Randhawa) to be ‘sacrosanct’. Trump has sacked (for better or worse) virtually everyone except his personal handler. Not so with Nikki Haley. Is she being groomed for future High Office ?

    Idiocracy; this is how we go out.
    Self education is open to everyone, it’s just that very few take advantage of it.

    Unrelated, and I’m sure you all have seen it already. Another dead epidemiologist.

    “They” believe their own press!
    You can also say, they’ve been educated by
    their own dumbed-downed systems.

    Who knew the writers of this classic, who are commenting on matters of personal relationships, would provide such a rich tapestry of images related to our present batch of oligarchs and politicians. As I was reading this and considering the sets of performers currently in operation in both Hollywood and DC, the following song lyrics came to mind. With all intention to preserve copyrights for Sonny Sondheim for such a poignant song, consider carefully the lyrics to the song “Send in the Clowns”:

    Isn’t it rich?
    Are we a pair?
    Me here, at last, on the ground
    You in mid-air
    Send in the clowns

    Isn’t it bliss?
    Don’t you approve?
    One who keeps tearing around
    One who can’t move
    Where are the clowns?
    Send in the clowns

    Just when I’d stopped opening doors
    Finally knowing the one that I wanted was yours
    Making my entrance again with my usual flair
    Sure of my lines
    No one is there
    Don’t you love farce?
    My fault, I fear
    I thought that you’d want what I want
    Sorry, my dear
    But where are the clowns?
    There ought to be clowns
    Quick, send in the clowns


    By now you probably get the point. We are all Desiree and mourning the country we’ve just lost…

    Unlike the Clinton’s, Maxine simply didn’t steal enough money to keep herself out of prison.

    Yonder window East.
    Giza gas chamber early rise.
    Heart sun explosion.

    Christian Identity is neither based on faith nor fact, but exclusively on the holy ghost. Therefore, an academic approach is fruitless. The only thing, that can be studied, is the learning process, not the result of it.

    Identity reflects world view, inherited by bloodline. One learns to see the world through the eyes of one’s forefathers. It is also called upbringing, and that demands holy ghost of patience and respect between generations.

    One transcends centuries that way. Because of the Bible, one transcends millennia. Bible is a big boost. A Bronze Age chieftain called Abraham is one’s forefather, and therefore one’s identity. Ability to transcend one’s forefathers defines prophecy.

    . . . To think, there are those in elected positions that overtly and continually presume their authority in access in matters they are not well informed. . . The term once used often for those trying to presume more than they merit – Show-boater – usually comes with a sting of reckoning best left alone and given a wide berth when recognized from afar. . . The asymmetric cyber plotter now is one to beware. They don’t ask for permission; they usually over ride it. . .

    I personally smirkled a bit when Maxime says that they need something specific, then conjures up a mythical monologogue of events that didnt happen…
    When Politicians spend more time talking about things that didnt happen and saying that things that did happen, didnt.. you need to seriously look at why the heck **these** useless idiots are allowed to keep the rest of the species down…
