THE GEOPOLITICAL FALLOUT: MEDVEDEV WEIGHS IN

You might recall that I began last week's "return to blogging" after the Christmas-New Year holiday with some speculations on the possible geopolitical fallout from the American elections. Without rehearsing all those speculations in detail again, let's just say that I concluded that both America's friends and allies, competitors, and outright enemies would be considering a "pulling away" to the extent that that is possible, and for countries like Japan or India (or even Russia), that meant over the next several years an increase in defense spending and bilateral security arrangements by-passing, or not including, the United States, such as the recent logistical support agreement signed by India and Japan. As the Russians observed some years ago toward the tail end of the Obama Administration and the beginning of the incoming Trump administration, the USA was simply "not agreement capable." In the wake of the election of Trump in 2016, and now that of Biden in 2020 under circumstances many -  including this author - view as highly questionable, foreign powers have had to lurch from one policy adjustment to another.

All this adds up to: instability; in their eyes, the USA appears to be increasingly unstable, and being run by a bunch of infants.

Well, it didn't take long for the corroboration of my speculations to come, for according to this article shared by K.M., none other than former Russian president and prime minister, Dmitri Medvedev, has weighed in on the subject in a recent op-ed piece in TASS:

Dmitry Medvedev: America 2.0. After the election

It's important to recall that Mr. Medvedev, while a regular feature of Mr. Putin's government, is more of a globalist or Atlanticist than is Mr. Putin, at least, as far as his public posture is concerned. It's that little fact which makes his message more intriguing. Indeed, I cannot help but think that Mr. Medvedev was probably encouraged to write his op-ed piece precisely because of this point; Mr. Putin has given many speeches over the past decade, warning about the dangers of uni-polarism and a globalism incapable of recognizing the importance of national cultures and their preservation, and a pax Americana version of Mr. Globaloney's globalist fantasies. Mr. Medvedev, on the other hand, has not been nearly as vocal on this score,  which makes his commentary worth noticing.

The very first thing to notice is the title of the piece: "America 2.o, After the election". The implication seems to be clear, namely, that whatever America was before the last election it is now something else; it's an "update" or a "version 2", but it is not what it was. There has been a rupture, a break, an interruption, and it no longer is what it was before.

Beyond this, there's much to ponder in Mr. Medvedev's editorial. Firstly, there is the general corroboration that this last election has set into motion geopolitical waves that will ripple around the world and well into the future:

It is commonly acknowledged that the biggest economies have a major influence on political and social development of other countries. Crises that they periodically go through affect the global economy and consequently have impact on regional and national economies, as well as on political systems of countries that are sensitive to such impact. Yet, it is often overlooked that certain political events, such as elections, can also provoke serious crises in other countries. That is especially so when countries that have a direct influence on the fundamental global processes are concerned.

In this context, it is worth taking a look at the recent US presidential election. It is not that this presidential campaign, likely the most scandal-ridden in history, proved that the flaws in the US electoral system have a comprehensive nature. That is no news.

In fact, the strengths and shortcomings of the US voting system could be regarded as a purely domestic issue. But there is one problem. Elections in this country, especially when there is a transfer of power from one political force to the other, can trigger significant changes in the global economic development, seriously affecting the existing institutions of international law and global security system.

In other words, there will be long-term consequences of this "likely most scandal-ridden" U.S. election in history, most of them geopolitical and economic, and impacting international stability and security. For those studied in the language of "Kremlinese", this translates to "we'll be watching what you (attempt to) do in, and what you say about Russia and The Ukraine very carefully." On this score, Mr. Medvedev underscores, once again, America's "not-agreement-capable" instability:

Many US leaders have at various times admitted, including to me personally, "It is true that our system is not perfect, but we are used to it and it is convenient for us." The problem is that the rest of the world finds it increasingly "inconvenient" to work with such a country, as the US becomes an unpredictable partner. This unpredictability gives other States, regional associations and military political organizations cause for concern. It would be nice if the US political establishment realized this responsibility. (Emphasis added)

The reason for this instability? Note carefully the following words:

The nation is divided, the fault line running between people of different value orientations, which reflect on the electoral choice between Republicans and Democrats. There is a clear "value divide" between conservative Americans and those who promote change in traditionalist attitudes, between "law-abiding" Americans and those who support active street protest, between those employed in high-tech industry and those left out of the technological revolution. Besides, the election race laid bare the tensions between the federal government and state and local governments. Accusations against the federal government of exceeding its authority in using force to suppress riots have exposed cracks in American federalism, which the central government (regardless of party affiliation) prefers to conceal as far as possible.

There have also been large-scale violations of the election law. The United States still has no standard procedures for voter registration, voter identification, ballot issuance and submission. (Emphasis added)

In other words, Mr. Medvedev notices what is obvious to other major world powers on the "outside looking in": America is culturally divided, and in addition to this, there a bad fissures running along the lines between state and local governments, and (an increasingly weak) central or federal government. He even manages to note what much of the propatainment media in the US ignores, namely, the widespread violations of election laws during the last cycle. He then continues by rehearsing essentially the case that Mr. Trump and his supporters have outlined.

Most noteworthy, however, are his remarks concerning the censorship being practiced by the social media tech giants. Consider the irony of the following words, composed by a former President and Prime Minister, and current high ranking national security advisor in the Kremlin, writing in an op-ed piece appearing in TASS!

There is one more critical issue which, in the context of the outdated American electoral system, has moved up extremely high up the agenda. I am talking about the unprecedented role in public politics of social networks and new media, and, accordingly, of private IT companies that own those platforms. Conventional American media, whose activities are regulated by laws and fall within the First Amendment, have traditionally – and always officially – taken the side of a certain candidate and yet deemed it necessary to give coverage to statements made by the opponent during election and post-election campaigns. The social media, however, are beyond any special regulations and work on the basis of user agreements. And it was them that unleashed the media war without rules! And that war is waged against one single person. During the vote counting, Trump's posts on Twitter, where he has over 85 million followers, were flagged as potentially misleading and later even hidden. The events in the Capitol resulted in the unprecedented and permanent suspension of Trump's accounts in all social media – where he has a total of about 200 million followers. Noteworthy is that the tone of the posts that provoked the suspension of Trump's accounts was not much different from his narrative of the preceding weeks. Next, they blocked tens of thousands of supporters of the incumbent president across all kinds of platforms which used to be viewed as forums for a full-fledged discussion. For America, just as for the rest of the world, this level of corporate censorship is a truly extraordinary phenomenon. A question arises: who are those supreme judges that decided that they, of their own volition and based on their own rules – but, in fact, guided by their political preferences, can deprive the country's president of the opportunity to communicate with an audience of many millions? Whether Trump is good or bad, he is his country's national, and, furthermore, an official who enjoys the trust of nearly half of the Americans. Thus, it turns out that several technological corporations located in California got an appetite for power and thought it possible to juggle with news and facts to suit their own political preferences. This is but a blatant censorship!

Dictating their own terms, they have sought to substitute for state institutions, encroaching on their mandates, aggressively imposing their views on a great number of people, leaving them no other choice; while the 75 millions of Trump's voters and hundreds of millions of his subscribers were left out of their "choice." These were simply labelled as insecure. Isn't it, indeed, a spectre of cyber totalitarianism that is gradually overwhelming the society, taking away from it (and potentially the entire world) the opportunity to see the reality for what it is? But even if Donald Trump leaves the politics for good and the Tech Giants wipe out his digital footprint, the minds will remain hugely polarized. This is yet another problem stemming from the US's outdated voting system, and it will push governments of different countries into action to prevent the same scenario in their own States. (Emphasis added)

Medvedev is correct in his prediction, as we've already seen both Mad Madame Merkel, and Mad Madame Macron expressing concern about the censorship of Mr. Trump, and there are already indications that Russia is attempting to build out its  own version of the internet. Or to put all this as plainly as possible: other countries will take similar action, leaving the American social media giants isolated within their own country, peddling their own version of propatainment, and  assuming the role that TASS once had during the Soviet era!

He then passes on to the economic and financial implications that inevitably follow in the wake of the geopolitical ones:

Given the special place of the US in the architecture of international relations, all this makes us try and guess the impact of the elections on the "classical" world politics as well as economy. It is crystal clear that the elections influence directly trends in global development. Everything else, with certain reservations, can be regarded as an internal affair of the US itself. Yet outward effects are our common issue. Let me remind you that George W. Bush's victory back in 2000 caused a significant though short-term volatility on stock markets. It is equally possible after the current shock, which of course provides considerable grounds for concern. But the long-term stability of the US dollar will be largely determined by the resilience of institutions for the protection of property rights, the demand for American goods and services in the global market, as well as the predictability and independence of the Federal Reserve System (FRS), which underpins the confidence in the US dollar.(Emphasis added)

Perhaps, however, it is Mr. Medvedev's concluding words that are the most ominous and, behind their carefully crafted wording, the most chilling:

I have listed only a few areas which will obviously be among those deserving special attention. Most importantly: the unpredictability of further US actions in the international arena, a kind of toxicity of this country even for its allies and partners is a result of serious social upheavals that American society faces. This internal and external instability is largely due to a clumsy, hopelessly outdated voting system that has seen no major changes since the 18th century up to the present. And the last election turned out to be not a political competition of ideas that the US had always prided itself on, but rather a confrontation between two campaigns of hatred.

We do not want the US to have problems. And for practical reasons: such problems create waves of instability all-around that overflow us as well. The problems of the Unites States can only be solved by the Americans themselves along with the good governance of the country. One of the founding fathers of the United States, Thomas Jefferson, rightly noted that "the whole art of government consists in the art of being honest". Any election is the most important test of such honesty. Of course, only Americans themselves can decide whether to put aside their national selfishness and launch the voting system reform, and, consequently, the reform of political life, or not. So far, there has been no real move towards this. Nor even the slightest hint of a desire to change anything. And the international community is already paying too high a price for the US reluctance to change. (Emphasis added)

To boil all that down to its most succinct quintessence: the U.S.A. is simply "not-agreement-capable" because as he has pointed out, it cannot even agree with itself. In that context, the USA should expect its allies, and its competitors - such as Russia - to act accordingly. And this is bound to affect Mr. Globaloney, whose mantra is the Great Resert and whose base of power is still locked firmly and squarely within North America.

See you on the flip side...

    Just thinking of our American Mystic who prophesied that Russia would save the world. 😉

    1. I’m hoping Dr Farrell will comment on Putin lifting covid restrictionsin Russia
      https://principia-scientific.com/from-russia-with-love-putin-lifts-covid19-restrictions/

      As for prophecy, Russia shows up in many Catholic prophecies, Fatima being the primary one. Our Lady is said to have appeared to three poor ignorant children there and there was the infamous sun miracle, witnessed by tens of thousands. She asked the Church to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart and the world would get peace. If the Church didn’t do as requested, Russia would “spread her errors” throughout the world. Many think that the errors are communism/Marxism. The church didn’t do as requested and there has been so much written about this. There is also a secret that was supposed to be released, but the Church didn’t do that either…

      Russia is named elsewhere, namely in Garabandal where Our Lady appeared again to four poor illiterate girls in 1962. The timing there was relevant because the Church didn’t release the Fatima secret as requested in 1960 and didn’t do the consecration either at the Council where it could have been done as she requested.
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUYuO7M4k_s

      Russia is named in other prophecies too, but the above too are best known.

    1. roastedandsalted

      what happened to the baby boomers to cause their subsequence intentional emotional and physical destruction of their offspring and their surroundings with the fear of being left on the curbside?

      1. I suggest you read “The Fourth Turning: An American Prophecy – What the Cycles of History Tell Us About America’s Next Rendezvous with Destiny” (1997) by William Strauss & Neil Howe. Read it carefully, let it digest for a week or so, and then read it again…

  2. Medvedev is rubbing salt in the wound and flagging up the obvious, namely, the imminent demise of the USA as THE global superpower; end of the dollar as reserve currency and the huge implications of that for civil society, culture and future relations. He’s doing what the Russians always do which is to id the entire problem as one of US internal corruption and malfeasance as opposed to – in this case – a co-ordinated and pre-meditated attack from global forces determined to put an end to US hegemony and exceptionalism and make it a vassal state of the Central Banking cartel and its public and private sector co- conspirators. The clue is that Russia and C hina have been named-checked by WEF as ‘on top’ come the new world (dis)order.

  3. roastedandsalted

    dropping here.
    As above so as below.
    does it come with pith instructions or is it open for interpretation?

  4. In America Operation Phoenix is flyin. In Russia the gun cabinet is unlocked. PUULLLLL!!

    Vietnam was reportedly a beta test…..

  5. As always lengthy but no wasted words Medvedev pulls no punches. Unfortunately Joe the Grifter would more correctly be more the president of the old CSA than of the USA and serving his masters of all places in NATO and EU as a running dog. By the way the USA has had over fifty presidents since its beginnings technically George Washington was the eighth president of the republic. There were seven presidents under the Articles of Confederation he was the first under the Constitution.

  6. Sometimes it’s good to listen and reflect. Our leadership seems to forget this concept. Both Joseph and Medvedev have made valid points. All the drama coming out of our Country the past 20 plus years has a ripple affect in the world. Crime that pays is crime that stays. If there is no accountability for these corporate criminals how can we be trusted or respected as a leading nation? Now we are seeing the Corporate states playing a more active” in your face “role in creating disaster capitalism and pushing an anti-human agenda. Perhaps we should reflect on how we can get our governing institutions back to a functioning civil manner that considers all life and coming generations. Perhaps we need to stop investing in the irresponsible corporate states that don’t seem to answer to any ethical or decent moral pro-human code.

  7. In one’s humble opinion, Dmitry Medvedev, and the rest of the former Soviet elite have not taken their sights off what was to what it [Cold War] has become. They’re as much entangled in this bad-case-of-US-corruption as the rest of the major and minor powers that be, and they know it. The newer Russian Federation have their own issues in Moscow as well as next door which are not going away anytime soon.

    One thing that stands out from the article is that they Russians have NOT dropped the ball and play close to the chest with a dead pan face that has yet to be called. That includes watching the other Red play book to their southeast. They understand the politics of the billionaires and Washington often better than the home players. One would dare say, they pride themselves in being better than the corrupted home team players.

    Communications traffic should be quite interesting come Wednesday midnight, but on which meridian of longitude?

    1. Rest assured that the National Guard is in DC to protect the nation from an inside threat to the incoming administration. Thank the powers that be for tasking the FBI with vetting the 25,000 troops in the Guard for their attitude to the president. I need to find an emoticon for ‘big sigh of relief.”

      1. ZDB: Do I detect a whiff of sarcasm in your tone? It certainly is aimed in well deserved direction. I can’t wait to see you really let go!

  8. I can’t remember the last time I read as trenchant and pertinent an analysis from an American politician…

    1. Meaning I don’t think our (American) political class, or even its speechwriters, could produce a piece such as this one by Medvedev. That’s what strikes me most about all this, besides its being confirmation of Dr. Farrell’s own insightful geopolitical analyses.

      1. Exactly what I was thinking as I read the excerpts. I’m not sure when ( if ) the American political class exhibited similarly high standards; I suspect you’d have to go back many decades. I’ve said for a long time, that one of the main problems the USA has is the dearth of an elite class with both moral and intellectual integrity ( not perfection mind you, but at least some semblance of virtue as a guiding principle ). I write as one who is firmly convinced ( despite the myth of democracy/republicanism propagated in America ) that it is the few who rule in any society, whether openly or behind the scenes. If my view is correct, the USA needs a ( much ) better class of elites. And that can only be accomplished with a strong ( multi-decade ) focus on *culture* ( i.e. as Dr. Farrell has defined and discussed the topic on so many occasions ). The cream that rises to the top will only be as good as rest of the milk in the bottle.

        1. The intellect of the politicians is irrelevant for the purposes of the corporate globalist davos crowd. The only thing that matters to them is that the politicians swear allegiance to the globalist totalitiarian flag and do as they are told. Intelligence not necessary. In fact, it should be obvious by now that the dumber the politician/public official, the better, as far as the globalists are concerned since dumber equals more corruptible and easier to control (see for example former communist terrorist and current head of the WHO). This explains the rise of the career politician and the fall of the conviction politician. People of integrity and honesty with serious moral and intellectual convictions need not apply for public office.

          1. We shall see how that works for the Davos crowd. Any elite needs a managerial class ( which effectively includes the political class ) that will be able to coordinate and carry out policies in an effective conducive to elite goals. Degraded minds and morals cannot be depended on to maintain an empire ( paradoxically, this is true even it is an evil empire ). So, unless the techno-dystopia envisioned by the elites comes to fruition very soon ( a matter of years, not decades ), rot will quickly set in on a regime that has, in the wake of fake pandemic + widescale election fraud ( the tail end of a 6 decade psy-op ), concretized falsehood on a level equivalent to the Soviet Union. The present-day configuration of the USA, if ruled in the current degenerate manner, will fall much sooner than people currently think possible.

  9. Trump was never an outlier, there hasn’t been a real changing of power in the executive branch of this government in many generations. Everything is being set up to make it seem less stable than it is, when in actuality the powers that be have never been in more control.

    The Cold War ended a long time ago, and China became the new designated “west” before young adult voters were born.

    It’s all a show folks.

      1. That’s the irony of hearing Kissinger’s man Pieczinik ranting on Alex Jones that Biden will not be president and Trump will prevail.

  10. Dear Joseph, thank you very much for your articles I have discovered thanks to the plandemic. Dear Giza commenters, thank you too for your views.

    Seen from France /EU dictatorship, Medvedev article is in the same line as what many Russian officials have been saying to us for years about the US : as we know, Russia dares have their borders near a lot of american bombs-loaded european countries and so for our common safety, they did their best to explain us that, should a new war be launched against Russia by the same perpetrators as the previous ones, again the same destruction would take place in western Europe.
    Also they have been informing us about the immense harm needlessly done to our countries due to the compliance with the everlasting « American sanctions » against Russia & al, a virus older than covid.

    Focusing on the blatantly rigged elections blatantly omits the reasons why the political corruption openly increases in the US and the government has been privatized. Even Medvedev knows it needs much deeper than a reform of the electoral system.
    In France the presidential elections are also completely rigged at a big scale since Sarkozy, in order to forcefully lock us behind the new iron wall of NATO and the EU we had refused by referendum in 2005, and MK-puppet Macron was not elected but selected.

    As for our completely unelected corrupt EU « leadership », no need to bother about rigged elections then, but their front handler, Soros, said clearly several times : « CHINA MUST NOW TAKE THE LEAD OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER ».
    Remember how long Wladimir Putin tirelessly tried to convince the European countries’ « leaders » to form an alliance with Russia, before he finally resigned himself to sign with China ?

    « Waves of instability all-around that overflow [Russia] as well », is it not precisely what Mr. Globaloney aims at provoking in order to seize power after having taken down all governments by dividing all the People ?
    Eugenicist « Mr. Globaloney, whose mantra is the Great Reset and whose base of power is still locked firmly and squarely within North America », was comfortably drinking tea in Switzerland while European and American soldiers were dying on battle fields.
    (Anglo-American Money Owners Organized World War II https://www.voltairenet.org/article187508.html)

    Dear American People, bottom line : don’t you ever be ashamed of what has been done to you. The deadly danger is the violence of the DIVISION, artificially produced for so long with lies such as « communists versus conservatives », « Blacks versus Whites », « civilized versus moslem »… whereas there are only two sides in this world : the parasites and the People, the blood thirsty and those who want a decent life for their children.
    The USA can « agree with itself » by agreeing on this and defeat the suicide mind programming.

    1. Thank you Danse. Been talking with the few people it is possible to talk with in lockdown about just that. Feeling guilty about enduring what we have endured is just more mk and gaslighting. Time to recognize who is the problem and it’s not each other.

      What we need to concern ourselves with now is exemplified in the 1/6/2021 Insurrection.

      https://twitter.com/Tony__Heller/status/1351024026202877953
      “I learned this week from @CNN that the commander in chief of the largest military in world history, attempted to overthrow his own government using a guy in a buffalo hat who was armed with a bullhorn.”

      If a bunch of paid actors can pretend to a civil war and force us into a dialectic that maximizes personal and property damage, that would be, well, alot like what the US has helped Mr Globaloney do to almost every other country right?

      1. ZDB, the thoughts in your last paragraph have been what causes me concern in some early-morning hours. It feels like some combination of Problem -> Reaction -> Solution, Disaster Capitalism, and a Harkonnen planet-in-the-making. My intuition is just jumping up-and-down and exclaiming, “Look, look!” I sure hope we (collectively) can use this time for a step Up rather than a step Down…

    2. Eleni Tsigantes

      Thank you Danse for presenting this so well, as I write, a Greek, from Lesvos….on the EU frontier, 7 miles across the strait from Turkey.

      Back in 2005-7 our then [pre-“crisis”] PM Karamanlis was negotiating with Rosneft for a Russian gas line to and through Greece. His car was surrounded on a country road by black SUVs, with black clad men with machine guns. His Special Forces security managed to escape the situation. Arriving home he discovered that his wife and children were kidnapped…they were released 36 hours later. 2 months later one third of the Peloponossos burnt down, headlined around the world. The first incident was kept out of the news at the time, and only released in 2010, 2 years after Karamanlis was replaced by Papandreaou…who announced from Kastelorizo [where Turkish boats are now stationed, pretending it’s their own]…that Greece was “broke”. The “crisis” was on.

      You have Sarkozy and Macron, Germany Merkel, the UK Blair, Cameron & Bojo, Greece Papandreou, DNC and Soros-funded Tsipras and now Mitsotakis….the list goes on….all selected. The USA had Clinton and Obama….

      “Europe”, the EU part of it, has been under Mr. Globaloney for 22 horrendous years and that gives Europeans a special framework watching the return to power of an unfettered US swamp, so eerily familiar in their worse-than-mediocrity. Whatever people might think of Trump he was good for Europe
      and for much of the world. We had a breathing space. A time to get stronger – including the USA.
      Most important of all Americans themselves went on a very steep learning curve…..

      So I join you whole heartedly saying to Americans Not to feel ashamed – we’ve all been played, or, slow-boiled but to mid-way only, we can all jump out of this pot together! And just ignore all those lifestyle ID politics red herrings….they’re a ‘just for now’ tactic to create false division aka meaningless.

  11. Hi,
    I am in disagreement with the most of you.
    Here is a question to ponder.

    With a reminder of the fact that a great majority of election denial litigation having been refused by Trump appointed Judges, with a reminder of the fact that Republican AG’s in Arizona and Georgia having dissavowed any questions as to any suspicions of impropriaties that may have occurred during the election, any that may have deeply impacted on the results, to the affrimation that the former AG of the US Bill Barr has put out affirming the legal results of the election devoid of any percieved illegalities, my question, what if the polls leading into the election were correct?
    Why were the election results so far from being a reflection of the final result? Might not the attempt to influence the result be from the allegations from Trump influenced people? Trump influenced network?
    Their error ?! They missed the mark?!

    One can only dive into conspiracy theories and remain stained by them. Myself included. That is the mark of the Beast, the latter being another conspiracy theory?

    Let’s hope that Amercia becomes America, for us living in the outside US world. For us, living within living democracies, because of the US revolution, hoping that our Leader can once again Lead, with moral fortitude, and moral correctedness.

    God Bless America.

    1. Denis, with the greatest respect, some of us have asked the same questions multiple times throughout this exercise. It boils down to this, in my opinion. When the preponderance of the data falls on the electoral coup hypothesis rather than the fair election hypothesis, which do you believe? The scientific method, as in matters of law, demands some real data on which to base its conclusions. If data comes into play that settles the question better, my attitudes can change. But, Bill Barr was never an unbiased participant in this matters. He was part of the cabal whose center was in the Bush family–and that is also problematic. This election feels like the next chapter in the 9/11 narrative to me. Until I see collaborating evidence to the contrary I see no reason to switch between the two hypotheses. I will, however, wait with you for that evidence just in case it does appear.

      1. There’s no better example of just how well American politics, security organizations, courts, law enforcement, and especially media, function than the Nov. 1963 assassination.
        What’s indisputable about the JFK assassination event is that rifle fire was coming from within the victim’s 12 to 2 o’clock with wound debris blow-out to his rear. Motorcycle police to the rear of his vehicle were hit with some of this debris. The victim’s wife crawled out on the trunk of the vehicle to retrieve a part of the victim’s head which she later offered to emergency medics. The emergency medics who saw his body in Dallas described wounds caused by incoming fire from his front. While the law was such that the victim’s autopsy should be done there in Dallas by local personnel, there was a near violent encounter between state of Texas agents and Federal agents, who were under orders to take control of the victim’s body and get it to Washington, which they did nearly at gun point. A day later, someone found near the shooting scene a piece of ocipital skull bone, a blow out from the rear of the victim’s skull. Some civilian and police witnesses who were just tens of feet from the victim when he was being hit by gun fire moved toward the “grassy knoll” because that is where they thought the sound of firing was coming from. Oswald was at the victim’s 5 o’clock, the wrong direction to have been the source of the rifle fire described above.

        1. No argument from me either. As a friend and I were sitting in a pizza palor in Brooklyn on 09/12/2001, he asked me, “What do you think of all of this? If I know anyone who might be skeptical of the evolving official narrative it is you.” I told him then, “I feels like the architecture of a deep story unlike any we’ve had since the JFK narrative. What we’re being told is fiction–and what happened is hidden from view. I think the two are connected.” He said, “I was afraid you would say this, and I am afraid if you prove to be right.”

          The reason why I chose the more recent variant is because historically, these two stories are more closely related in time–and because these events are an attempt to reset the U.S. back on the geopolitical path the U.S. was on back in 2001. Trump disrupted that narrative a bit–not enough for most of us, but there it is. The irony was, I did not know in 2001 what I know now–and I was there. Those globalists are angry that they lost momentum over the past four years toward some goal that Trump was hindering–and this has them very angry. You and I see this whole nexus of events in a similar fashion, which is why this conversation and forum is such a great place. Free expression is encouraged here.

          1. Free expression is the point.

            How better to learn who stupid I am – er rather how to be smarter – than to throw out there what I think reality is to hear back what we all think.

            And then get some crazy links that turn out to be way more plausible than consensus science/journalism/whateverism.

            Links like Miles Mathis, or Marisa at Riss Flex, or Noinsurancesurgery.com, or crazy sounding ones like gizadeathstar.com.

            Is it me or do all the least credible sounding names provide the most credible ideas running now – while all the most credible sounding names uniformly insult us with gaslighting?

      2. Didn’t Bill Barr’s Daddy hire Epstein to teach beautiful young wealthy girls Math and Physics at Dalton with zero credentials and qualifications? Right before Barr’s Daddy left Dalton to be replaced by a headmaster who got busted of childraping a poor girl living in his how while on scholarship to Dalton? No patterns to see here. Let’s just move along.

      3. 9/11 indeed, what’s just occurred with the phony election will probably have just as much impact. Ironic, isn’t it, for the Russians to be scolding us about censorship in TASS of all places!

    2. Denis,
      by now you might have noticed how accepted you are here by folk who feel the answers to your questions are obvious. Please do let us know what you thought of Paul Craig Roberts’ article that ragiza posted.

      1. Definitely a shit show of an election, but not surprising as Twain said “if voting mattered they wouldn’t let us do it”

        1. Robert Barricklow

          Twain, the classic American.
          If more people were like Twain;
          the NWO would have never germinated.

    First off, I never cottoned to Medvedev; wondering why Putin had him in; unless pure politics. Why. He’s a neoliberal.[although, I did get that by reading, and all print/video is suspect]. Onto today’s blog…

    Any country not yet absorbed by the red blob[Bidet Inc., subsidiary of Red China] should stay as far away as possible.
    Russia should be a safe bet, as they shook-off the red fever sometime ago; and still have herd immunity.

    Great! Your blog references my concern in spades/is more of a globalist or Atlanticist than is Mr. Putin.
    America 2.0; or, a new version, to be updated continuously w/red injection shots{Oregon considering bill for emergency seizure of private property[ https://legitgov.org/

    In other words; beware what happened in the U.S. can happen anywhere[and has; only this time, the color revolution came home to roost]
    You did it to our next door neighbor, The Ukraine. We’ll be watching closely where you attempt to inject your NWO red madness.
    In talking w/U.S. representatives Medvedev implies/You maybe used to madness; but we prefer sanity…

    1. RB, I’m an Oregonian. That proposed Bill (HB-2238) scares the heck out of me with its possibility for misuse. If that Bill makes it to the floor, I wonder if the Republican side of the OR legislature will walk out (flee out of state) again, to prevent a vote being held through lack of a quorum…

      1. Good luck G. Keep us aware. We have family there too who escaped from Newsome. Out of the frying pan.

        Thank you again for the reminder on Miles. Not sure how I (or he) feel about finding sanity in his papers.

        Robert, recent headlines about Navalny got me searching which brought me back to
        http
        s://gizadeathstar.com/2020/10/russia-walking-away-from-the-eu/
        Seemed a more timely review than I expected. Then I came across your 10/27/2020 comment and this link
        https
        ://youtu.be/dM19k4h4eMI
        Think I missed it back then. Seems more pertinent now. Will look for more links to Marisa / Riss Flex. She looks as valuable a link as BOC. Perhaps a little more honest than Whitney Webb?

        1. ZDB, you’re welcome. And thanks in turn for all the links you (and others) have contributed. Hopefully, the Truth will out…

          (On Miles Mathis, be discerning. In one of his latest papers, he states that the big Iwo Jima battle in WWII never took place. That’s insane. I don’t know whether he went beyond-the-pale in his conspiracy-think, or this is a defensive maneuver to stay alive in the current climate (i.e., a “he’s a nut, and therefore harmless” stratagem to keep a wetware team from being dispatched to ‘suicide’ him). We’ll see…

        2. Robert Barricklow

          ZDB,
          It really rang true; because, at the time I was reading: We Have Been Harmonized/Life In China’s Surveillance State by Kai Strittmatter.
          A real down & dirty skinny that describes in detail about that global –
          something wicked coming this way.
          That video confirmed what I already knew; but in words w/real heart behind them. But the real gem was he embedded the Chinese whistle blower telling about the NWO master plan: Global Slavery!
          https://youtu.be/dM19kh4eMI

          Unfortunately, he underestimated the Enemy. Trump appears all but gone from the White House.

      2. I read about the Oregon Bill and the thought occurred to me was that this is the trial run – if it becomes law in OR, it will be rolled out in other states.

    2. Robert Barricklow

      …back late from the mad tea party.
      Done w/the red background noise.

      First off, geopolitics is about war; at least the prominent background noise that colors the interaction of nations.
      Second, Russia knows warfare; her history is red w/it. They won WWII w/it.
      [Her geography puts her in its path].
      Third, Russia knows the complexity of modern warfare; the ever-evolving and revolutionary technologies.
      The U.S geography, on the other hand, means the U.S. experience is very limited in essential hands-on inst1tional historical warfare.
      The U.S.is the primary mover in globalism[using threats as its primary tool] whose goal is to capture/destroy a nation’s economy and culture. In other words, the U.S. is a predator nation. Hence, its strong military is sine quo non.
      The U.S. weaknesses are many; but a policy of operating w/o real facts is the primary one, due to misleading intelligence to beef up the military, industrial, congressional complex.
      One might also add the U.S. lack the essential humanity need to understand true warfare: it’s cost to life.
      Hence, what is the U.S. fighting for?
      Its people?
      NOT!
      Its elite?
      Yes.
      Along those same lines;
      An absentee owner?

      It is that global spectre of cyber totalitarianism that truly engenders the U.S. as a social pariah to be avoided at all costs. China’s in the same cyber camp. Both are connecting. Both are exporting this inhuman technocracy to the world.
      Both need to be colored gone.
      China built her own internet.
      Other countries want out of the technocratic monopoly truth/facts, U.S. tech giant straightjackets.
      Nailed it in the long out takes/But the long term stability of the U.S. dollar will be largely determined by the resilience of inst1tutions for the protection of property rights, the demand for American goods and services in the global market, as well as the predictability and independence of the Federal Reserve System, which underpins the confidence in the US. dollar.[he continues ever more damning in his spot on analyses] …The problems of the US can only be solved by the Americans themselves. He goes on to quote Thomas Jefferson regarding the art of governance as being hones. Yet the US cannot even conduct a close to being honest election. Even worse, it can’t agree w/its own damn self; let alone have another country trust any US agreements.
      Globalist depends in the Might Makes Right policies enforced by the US military; and the Federal Reserve system.

      Looks like Russia is taking on an anti-globalist leadership role. Others are joining; not only in an alignment against an aggressive Red Eastern Dragon; but a growing unstable, Red Might Makes Right, Western global aggressor.

      Strange times are nothing new
      in this galaxy, I’m afraid.
      In fact, they might be endemic
      to a living universe; as life is…
      well, complicated.

  13. Using President Trump’s presidential experience as an example seems to be a warning of what can happen if other leaders don’t go along with the globalization agenda is registering world wide. If you want yourself, family and country to live and enjoy your comfy lifestyle and perks, pay attention.

    1. You bet it is. Medvedev is not saying as such but I think he is very much aware of the problem. His depth of international visibility hints to this in part I would think.

    2. Billy Bob – You summarized perfectly the reason for the frenzied, maniacal demonization and obstruction of Trump these past four years!

      I think Mr. Globaloney is also trying to scare and demoralize populist voters around the world too. Good luck with that one, Mr. Globaloney!

      1. Not so sure here Fiat.

        Miles Mathis (thank you for the reminder to get a dose of sanity Gosh) brings up arguments that I’ve wrestled with for years. I and everyone I know feels driven right. And I worked harder than anyone I know against Cheney/Dubya/Rove/Rumsfeld.

        Even those who agree with CNN (and CCP) and demonize Trump are feeling progressively (see how I did that?) nauseated by everything progressive (communism, masks, vaccines, lockdowns, transgender, neutral pronouns, calling Daryl Davis and Enrique Tarrio white nationalist racists, 9 year olds deciding sex change surgery and vaccines, transgenders beating heck out of women in sports, defund police, ………..)

        I know of an expat who taught English in HK 37 yrs. CCP almost wrecked him. It was hard and expensive to get him out and back to USA. Now he’s out of HK and promoting Biden and progressive ideas backed most obviously by CCP. As ironic as LeBron James’ rants about systemic inequities in US but decidedly no rants about HK (let alone about Uyghurs and Falon Gong).

        It’s a goad and a doublebind. If populist voters cave in to socialist, communist, progressive groups, then it’s #gulags and #getintheboxcar. The censorship makes the path down Solzhenitzyn’s cautionary tales clear.
        @jack allowed @projectveritas to leak video of him directing the memory holing of a sitting president and 70k followers while planning to continue the process on the rest of the platform’s users.

        It’s not just scaring Repugs. It’s horrifying a good portion of Biden’s base. Some of us remember Dubya’s rant “you’re either with us or the terrists” and what ensued. Trump does not need to threaten his 80M+ supporters.

        Mz/Mr Globalony is capable of bringing much more of CCP to USSA. Probably even capable of manufacturing consent for it. Right now though it sure feels like consent for a martial law lockdown from the right is being built.

        Something like 85% of Repugs agree with Medvedev? The stunner is that something like 40% Demicans agree too. That’s not like the support Richard J Daley got in Chicago when 100% of all voters knew it was fixed. The DNC does not have nor deserve the support Hishonordamayor got (at least until the ’68 police riots).

        Trump already has more than enough legal precedent for locking up tech oligarchs and most of the legislative branch. He probably has enough to lock up some of the judiciate (including Roberts). Who besides Hillary would put up much of a stink if he did?

        1. ZDB: So true. So very true. We both know many “reasons” why Trump did nothing the four years he had, but we still ask ourselves, “Why didn’t he?” The answers to that question remain unsettling–even now.

          1. Actually, Trump did several things in his four years:

            On the 1% and corporate side, he massively-reduced their taxes. That got the deficit really going.

            On the ‘disposable President’ side, he moved the US embassy to Jerusalem, acknowledged Israel’s annexation of the Golan Heights, gave US permission for Israel to annex the Jordan Valley, bribed/forced ‘peace treaties’ with Arab states still not acknowledging Israel, and established a formal USAF airbase within Israel. He did quite a lot…

            (And the answers to the question of WHY he did that remain unsettling – even now.)

        2. Robert Barricklow

          Like the movie “Z” I’ve ranted about here; again & again. In it, a political assassination is investigated by a detective who won’t stop until he gets at the truth and those responsible.
          He finds out that top government/military government officials committed the crime AND, not only that; he has the proof.
          The assassins are put in jail!

          The next day,
          the assassins are released!
          AND right after that, the investigator
          is immediately jailed!

          Welcome to Amerika!

        3. ZDB: Fair points. I find it hard to read the situation… My best guess at present: Globaloney doesn’t have total control of both/all sides and wasn’t expecting Trump to win. (I don’t think so many media flunkies, politicians, high-level Swamp creatures, and Soros types are such good actors that they could have been faking their surprise and horror at Trump so well for so long. Unless part of the plan was to trick them into believing Clinton would win–doesn’t seem likely to me.)

          Once Trump was there, of course TPTB used him to get what they could out of him. I get the impression he was in over his head in Swampington and was outmaneuvered again and again by the national and international establishment–virtually all of which was united against him from the beginning. Head navigator of that vipers’ nest isn’t an entry-level position, no matter how good you are at business.

          1. Agreed. Convid was the gun in his back. His initial response was confident but not long after he appeared in public looking shell shocked – like Johnson in UK. I believe they were threatened.

  14. Mr. Medvedev is essentially saying that this was a “rogue” election coming out of a “rogue” political situation in the US.
    I would point out that it could be viewed historically as an improvement over how John Kennedy and Richard Nixon were replaced.
    The US money-power elite that directs the “deep state” actors in the CIA, FBI etc, can play a lot rougher than this….

    1. Just because they haven’t yet doesn’t mean they will not try. They will first attempt to destroy the idea of the man before taking his life. That may not be successful, so his death must be secured by “natural causes”. He’s passed beyond the sniper’s bullet lest he be viewed as a martyr. As fragile as this coalition is, I don’t think they want to risk that. Yet…

    2. Robert Barricklow

      Perhaps?
      Yes, they may be faced with doing something horrible, no matter what they do
      to correct the outcome they desire.
      In the past[human],
      they chose the lesser of the evils.

      Today[inhuman]?
      They not only choose to globally in-humanize[covid184] mankind; but to technocratically global enslave him as well.
      So does the d/evil exist?

  15. The elections are not cheat proof because the establishment relies on rigging them to stay in power. The deep state has filled the halls of power with the most corrupt and low IQ people it could find because it felt they were easier to control. Unfortunately they did not realize taking this too far would lead to a total collapse and failure of the system. Good luck to them on keeping their ill gotten gains and bringing in tyranny to seize what little is left. Good luck to us for allowing them to do this to us for as long as we have.

    1. All good up to the point where I take responsibility for “allowing them to do” anything to us. First need to bring change is accurate analysis of what is changeable.

    2. Let’s see how long 75 million will stay awake. There is some genuine anger here. My wife’s grandfather had a theory. He would take a grand child’s finger, have them lick it to get it most, then ever so slightly have them touch the wood stove’s side while it was burning hot. His theory, the best way to teach them to stay away from the heater was let them feel some heat without being injured. A lot of people received a massive finger burn this time around. Many of them are not likely to forget. The world was watching–and they understand what this means. Whatever the globalist crowd intends to do, their calendar may have been trimmed again.

      1. I too think this time is different. The half of this country that matters and works so the rest can enjoy their welfare used to believe in the system. Now they don’t and are very angry and patiently waiting to see what the commies do next. They are ready and prepared for the worst. Things might not change all that much for most of us and if not they will eventually accept it as long as their freedoms are taken gradually. If the commies come in hot and heavy with change and tyranny it won’t end well for anyone. I’ve come to the conclusion you cant save the foolish from their foolishness. The monkeys all have access to the nuclear codes and other weapons of mass destruction and it’s just a matter of time before they use them.

        1. That half needs to do its own ‘reset’. Pull the plug on everything that is effectively subsidising or supporting the system; financially and otherwise. This is the challenge for people – to have the courage of their convictions rather than simply wait and see.

          1. Start with the noose they willing wear around their necks every single day .. Their cell phones so they can talk while they walk, shop, drive.

  16. (Site observation that I hope someone can pass-on to Joseph: Unless my Firefox browser is somehow doing this, I cannot see Joseph’s “Emphasis added” in his quotations. As I also cannot add italics or bolding, it appears all HTML Text Formatting is disabled – probably linked-with whatever caused the whole site to become italic. Personally, I would love to have this aspect of the site back the way it was…)

    (1) Medvedev gives-away his ‘slant’ in his pushing of the Federal Reserve System (FRS). He was reputed to be under the bankster thumb after the USSR’s breakup. It was at that time that the new Russia entered the Central Banking system. It is still the centerpiece of Russian finance. Putin has tried to ‘de-fang’ that system by paying-down Russian debt at an emergency pace. As I understand it, Russia has essentially no international debt. Banksters probably do not like that loss of control…

    (2) As I understand the Russian mind from reading ‘The Saker’ (a descendant of White Russian émigrés), the Russians were far more afraid of Hillary than Donald. They expected to be at war within months if Hillary won (and prepared accordingly). Four years later, Joe seems to be putting-into his cabinet basically the same people Hillary would have chosen. The Russian leadership may be feeling familiar jitters…

    (3) In my opinion, Mr. Globaloney’s base of power is still locked firmly and squarely within a certain small, rogue Middle East country (and the shadowy figures behind it). There is a fair chance that the powers centered-in that country are the ones pulling Medvedev’s strings (including in this TASS article)…

    1. Dont they pull the strings in “both camps”. It is a script where the so called world leaders play their part. On the stage they fight with each other, but in reality all of them (including North Korea) follow the same agenda. It is the old divide and conquer on a very high level with the social media as the new army.

      1. Marco, you might want to go over to Miles Mathis’ site and read these articles:
        http://mileswmathis.com/phoen.pdf (guest author)
        mileswmathis . com/phoen2.pdf (guest author)
        mileswmathis . com/phoen3.pdf (guest author)
        mileswmathis . com/phoen4.pdf (guest author)
        http://mileswmathis.com/phoenper.pdf (Miles)
        The ‘script’ has been going-on for thousands of years. And, that’s just the historically-documented part; it gets worse if you take myths of the Anunnaki seriously…

        1. Miles Mathis does not get enough coverage (not any) on the shows I listen to. Take note, MM thinks that even nukes might be fake (he might be right). I have a tendency to defer to my superiors. He also did twain.pdf outing him as a player/spy. In a Luciferian world one can just take the opposite as the truth… and IwaJima fits in finely.

          It is not so much an outdated election system as a modern computer mediated vote counting system that is the main problem. Is not Medvedev a ‘phoenecian’?

          Heck, Broer laid the American Revolution to waste last week ( I still cannot locate the definitive book ont hat one)… but seeing this video of duffle bagged communists in full dress rehearsal (thru Jim Stone today) one cannot but think of those Freemasons streaming from their Lodge dressed up as Indians for the Tea Party. 3.5mb

          1. Yeah, I disagree with Miles Mathis on certain issues. I do not think he has enough military experience to judge whether certain battles (throughout history) took place. His stance on Napoleonic battles started this for me.

            Also, I think he does not have enough Cold War experience to judge whether nukes are real or not. A few years ago, most of the film footage of 40s-60s nuclear & thermonuclear bomb tests was declassified. I spent some horrified & fascinated time reviewing them. These were film clips, not photographs. It would be very difficult to ‘fake’ them, given the scale…

            Finally, I disagree with him that the Space Race was not real, that we never went to the Moon, that we never sent probes to other planets, etc. I am/was an aerospace engineer, raised and trained in the middle of all that. There is just too much evidence – from program details to data – that all these did take place. Whether or not there is an additional Black Program or Breakaway Civilization is another matter…

            Miles’ strength is in his ‘lateral thinking’ and un-visored logic. Plus, his genealogical digging. I think he has done a very good job of unearthing various Phoenician Navy ‘schemes’ throughout our history. Thanks!

  17. The US has declassified a report outlining its strategy in the Indo-Pacific region, focusing on countering Chinese dominance, including providing support to the Taiwanese government. For background on China–Taiwan tensions (and the US role), read: https://t.co/gJut3CIBKN pic.twitter.com/rxB2ZNZ0zF
    Mention of Taiwan is always interesting from the “covert war” point of view.
