RUSSIA’S PESSIMISTIC PROSPECTS FOR 2019

Sad Vlad

Sad Vlad

Unlike the year before, Russia entered 2019 with low expectations and deepening disappointment in its own faltering revival.

In contrast, the World Cup provided a focus for anticipation in 2018, and the presidential elections, pre-determined as the outcome was, raised hopes for increases of pensions and social benefits. Those hopes turned into frustration with the upping of the retirement age by five years.

The smoldering conflict with Ukraine no longer generates any “patriotic” mobilization. Public attention and concerns are currently centered on domestic problems. As many as 57 percent of respondents foresee a probable looming economic crisis, while only 32 percent do not (Levada.ru, December 24, 2018).

President Vladimir Putin still insists on achieving an economic “breakthrough,” but his orders cannot alter the reality of stagnation. Illustratively, the World Bank revised its growth forecast for Russia downward to 1.5 percent; though, even that appears overly optimistic (RBC, January 9, 2019).  The bad news doesn’t end there.

CHINA’S GIANT MOSLEM GULAG

moslem-gulag-in-chinaChina’s Far West of Xinjiang is twice the size of Texas and almost as big as Alaska at 640,000 square miles.  It borders Mongolia, a tiny bit of Russian Siberia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, a tiny bit of Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, and Tibet.

Beijing officially calls it the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, as almost 50% of Xinjiang’s 25 million people are Uyghurs (wee-gurz), a Turkic Caucasian ethnic group that is Islamic in culture and religion.  Turkic-Islamic ethnicities such as the Kirghiz and Kazakhs comprise another 10%.

To many of them, Xinjiang (“New Frontier” in Mandarin) is East Turkestan, looking upon the 5 “Stans” of the former Soviet Union collectively as inspirationally independent West Turkestan.

Not long ago, together they were almost 100%, but due to massive relocation of millions of Han Chinese to Sinicize the region, their demographic dominance has been seriously diluted by Beijing design.

Thus it is tragically ironic that this “Uyghur Autonomous” province has been increasingly turned into a concentration camp imprisoning vast numbers of Uyghurs and other Moslems.

WHY DO DEMOCRATS ROMANTICIZE SOCIALIST SLAVERY?

capitalism-vs-socialism-ownershipWho should pay for your health care? For your education? For your retirement?

“Socialism,” we are told by the pollsters, is gaining in popularity at least the romanticized versions of it. It would be a world without poverty where people have everything they need, and all are equal.

Advocates for socialism have a problem naming the specific person who is supposed to pay their medical, school, and food and shelter bills. They often say the “rich” — as if there were millions of random rich people floating around just waiting to have their wealth plucked by some student or snowflake.

Jeff Bezos is the world’s richest man (at least until his divorce is finalized), and some claim that he is not a particularly nice person — but that is not illegal. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and many other well-known Democrats want to make Mr. Bezos their slave — despite the fact that he supports them with his Washington Post.

It's critically important to state that people such as Ms. Ocasio-Cortez are advocates of slavery, nothing less.

OUR DEGENERATE DEMOCRATS OUR DEGENERATE MEDIA

trump-tweet-012219The behavior of our national media over the past two and a half years has been contemptible.  Our Democrat Party with their Obama-weaponized FBI, DOJ, and CIA broke nearly every law on the books in their effort to destroy Donald Trump.

They have failed every step of the way but have not given up.  They continue to demean themselves, and this past weekend was a two-fer.

The fake BuzzFeed story that should have been dismissed out of hand was gleefully embraced by every pundit on every news outlet.  They could not contain their joy at yet another "bombshell" that would lead to impeachment.  Only Fox held back for confirmation.  When Mueller's office released a statement that "the BuzzFeed story was inaccurate," they were devastated.

Next came the wholesale sliming of a group of Catholic schoolboys who did nothing but gather to wait for their bus after marching in the pro-life rally.  This has brought the degeneracy of the Democrats and their media propagandists into full flower.

HALF-FULL REPORT 01/18/19

pelosi-flight-postponement-letterMy ribs are sore.  Every time I see this immortal letter and all the attendant media frenzy around it, I can’t stop belly laughing.

For example – Pelosi’s taxpayer-paid junket was unannounced, the public knew nothing about it, so when POTUS blew the whistle, he exposed it but waited until the Dems were in the bus on the way to Andrews:

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS JUST COMMITTED SUICIDE

Congressman King addressing Congress, January 11, 2019

Congressman King addressing Congress, January 11, 2019

On Thursday January 10, the New York Times ran one of its typical smear attacks on a prominent conservative Republican.  It was as fully dishonest and demagogic as usual, using the GOPer as a foil to smear the President and further the Times’ agenda of destroying our country.

This time the target was Iowa Congressman Steve King, and you can see the real target and the narrative in the headline: Before Trump, Steve King Set the Agenda for the Wall and Anti-Immigrant Politics.

It was a blatantly biased hit piece – immediately apparent in the headline, for “anti-immigrant politics” does not exist, not in Steve’s, not in President Trump’s, not in those of the GOP.  Theirs are “anti-illegal-immigrant politics,” a 180-degree difference that the Slimes purposefully ignores.

Yet it had precisely the effect intended five days later.  At 3:26pm Eastern Standard Time on January 15, 2019, the Republican Party died – cause of death: suicide.  Here’s what happened and why.

MAY THE SHUTDOWN GO ON FOREVER

govt-snowdownIt's hard to read the anonymous posting on the Daily Caller from a "senior Trump official" without coming to the conclusion that the current partial government shutdown should remain shut essentially forever. (It won't.  I know. But hear me out.)

Putting aside whatever pro-administration bias the author might have, the article confirms everything one suspects or knows about bureaucracies, especially government ones.

“They do nothing that warrants punishment and nothing of external value. That is their workday: errands for the sake of errands — administering, refining, following and collaborating on process. ‘Process is your friend’ is what delusional civil servants tell themselves. Even senior officials must gain approval from every rank across their department, other agencies and work units for basic administrative chores.”
Well, it's not as bad as what one former Justice Department attorney told me about life inside the DOJ -- that under-utilized $200K/yr lawyers sit there all day looking at porn on their computers -- but it's bad enough.

THE FBI HAS PROSTITUTED ITSELF

corrupt-culture-in-the-fbiLet’s be clear.  This is a national disgrace of unprecedented historic proportions.

Citing unnamed “former law enforcement sources and others,” the New York Times reports (1/11) that “in the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests.”

The mainstream media has touted this story as major breaking news. But, to anyone who has been paying even a modicum of attention, it is crystal clear that Comey’s firing did not precipitate the FBI’s investigation of Trump.

To the contrary, the readily available record facts demonstrate that Comey’s FBI began investigating Trump and his campaign for possible Russian collusion shortly after he won the Republican Party’s nomination.

Even though the Times would have us believe that the FBI investigated Trump out of a legitimate concern for national security, those same facts prove that, in launching and directing the investigation, the leadership of Comey’s FBI was engaging in partisan presidential politics to further their own corrupt interests. Here’s why.

SHOULD POPE FRANCIS LOOK IN A MIRROR TO SEE WHO IS A TOOL OF THE DEVIL?

tool-of-the-devilOur civilization, and especially our country, is based on “the laws of nature and nature’s God,”—standards of right and wrong independent of earthly power—preached by the Christian churches.

But clerics, including popes, cardinals, bishops, and priests have always flirted with the temptation to swap God’s laws for the rulers’ causes and prejudices. When it’s Christians versus Caesar, clerics mostly choose Caesar.

Today, a chapter in that temptation is playing out among us as America’s Catholic bishops consider how better to identify and punish some of their colleagues and the priests they supervise who have been sexually abusing adolescents, 80 percent of them boys and young men.

On November 11, 2018 under pressure from enraged parishioners, and internal resistance notwithstanding, the U.S. bishops were about to vote on some proposals better to identify and expel what, by definition, is homosexual predation. But homosexuality ranks high among the icons of progressives, robed and not. Pope Francis proceeded to denounce the accusers as “tools of the devil,” not the perpetrators themselves.

HOW DO WE KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON IN IRAN?

Iran Revolutionary Guards

Iran Revolutionary Guards

The Israelis captured copious secret Iranian documents that demonstrate the Islamic Republic long worked on underground nuclear facilities at Parchin. Now a detailed analysis of the Iranian scheme has come out, and it warrants close attention.

The analysis shows that the Iranians’ secret nuclear program was successfully hidden from Western intelligence services (including our own) and from the IAEA, the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency, which is supposed to monitor Iranian operations.

In other words, until Mossad agents made off with the extensive Iranian archive, the West had no serious information about the Iranian secret nuclear program.  This includes Israel, presumably the best informed of them all.  Are all our intel agencies that incompetent?
