BBC the "Voice of Satan" Raises Alarm about Potential Russian "Attack" on undersea cables - 'Sir Stuart Peach: Russia poses a "new risk" to economy and ways of living' [no mention of precious bodily fluids]

Scene from "James and the Giant Peach"

The BBC is reporting that the Brits have finally found a modern day use for the anachronistic Post WWII military tool of Ziofascist Global Hegemony - NATO. It is reporting that the West needs NATO 'now more than ever' in order to protect all the communications cables that criss cross the oceans of the world....from the threat of....wait for it....Russia!  Please read the following alarm raised by Sir Peach...UK's most senior military officer and I will have more thoughts in comments to follow:

The UK's most senior military officer has warned of a new threat posed by Russia to communications and internet cables that run under the sea.
Air Chief Marshal Sir Stuart Peach, the chief of the defence staff, said Britain and Nato needed to prioritise protecting the lines of communication.
He said it would be an "immediately and potentially catastrophic" hit to the economy if they were cut or disrupted.
The cables criss-cross the seabed, connecting up countries and continents.
Speaking to the Royal United Services Institute defence think tank, Sir Stuart said the vulnerability of undersea lines posed a "new risk to our way of life".

"In response to the threat posed by the modernisation of the Russian navy, both nuclear and conventional submarines and ships, we along with our Atlantic allies have prioritised missions and tasks to protect the sea lines of communication," he said.
"This sounds like a re-run of old missions, actually as I'm about to say, it is very, very important that we understand how important that mission is for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
"Because Russia in addition to new ships and submarines continues to perfect both unconventional capabilities and information warfare."
The UK and its allies needed to "match and understand Russian fleet modernisation", he added.
"There is a new risk to our way of life, which is the vulnerability of the cables that criss-cross the seabeds," he said.
"Can you imagine a scenario where those cables are cut or disrupted, which would immediately and potentially catastrophically affect both our economy and other ways of living."
Rishi Sunak MP warned earlier this month that a successful attack on the UK's network of undersea communications cables could deal a "crippling blow" to the country's security and economy."


Folks.  Has Russia ever threatened even one cable?  Has the word "cable" (кабель) ever been publicly spoken by Putin?  No.  Would Russia have the slightest modicum of advantage in destroying cables anywhere on the planet?  To start destroying cables would be a zero sum game with no winners...because any country could destroy undersea cables tit for tat until there was no cable communication anywhere on the's a fool's game [this, unfortunately, is a race that the West is winning...who can appoint the most number of fools to high office].

But, but, but...Sir Peach must be on to something! If NATO were given the task of protecting all the West's undersea cables...then it would have to patrol the entire planet in order to perform its duty.  No country, ocean or sea would be off limits.  Consequently, wars to protect Western "Ways of Living" could be fought from the Antarctic to the Arctic and anywhere in between.  Why, the West could even deliberately lay cable in geopolitical hotspots and thereafter "have to protect" it.  The possibilities are endless.

Nevermind that global communications are increasingly being switched to satellite...shot by rockets into outer Space..and Russia is highly successful in that arena.  No.  The probable reason behind Sir Peach's announcement is that there's going to be yet another [yawn] false flag soon.  There will be a series of attacks on undersea cable.... and these attacks will be blamed on Russia.  Just another demonization and isolation gambit...another ratcheting up of military confrontation and tension in the inexorable Western march to WWIII.  Wait for it.

Kiev hails US & Canada for greenlighting lethal arms supplies that could kill Ukraine peace process

Former Ukraine PM admits in court

that Ukraine Civil War was planned as

Coup against legal government

When the Satanic perps lose in one geopolitical "bullet point" on their global agenda...they never stop to reflect on whether their loss was due to some miscalculation or intrinsic flaw.  No...they quickly move on and/or switch gears to focus on another simmering area of controlled chaos and demolition of humanity.  Such is the case this week.  The Ziofascist warmongers lost big time in Syria.  In fact, this loss should be a dire warning to them that humanity is on to their overall game...hates their guts and will not tolerate any more of their lies, scheming and murderous criminality.  No.  The perps have moved reignite one of their other projects of past abject failure.  The Ukraine.

Remember, a few years ago when Russia and its allies in Novorossiya...Lugansk and Donbass...had over 1000 soldiers of the pathetic Ukrainian army surrounded in the Dalbaltsevo Cauldron?  The Ukraine soldiers were starving in the freezing snows of winter and were cut off from supplies and reinforcements.  If it were USrael that had been surrounding doubt they would have been picked off like the sitting ducks they were...bombed into the afterlife and we wouldn't even remember them anymore.  But Russia doesn't operate like that.  Putin called a halt to the military action and started up the Minsk series of peace negotiations.  Ultimately, the pathetic, scraggly band of Ukraine solders were allowed to walk free from the cauldron...with their rifles.

Flash forward to this past week.  With the catastrophic loss in Syria put into the rear view mirror...the perps are heating up the Ukraine "civil War" again.  Here is a snippet of an analysis by Alexander Mercouris, originally published in The Duran that I found in Seemorerocks...a blog maintained by Robin Westenra:  Please read and I will continue my thoughts, comments, and connection of dots to follow:

Chaos rules in Ukraine 

Arsenyi ‘Maidan’ Yatsenyuk Confirms He Staged a Coup in Kiev and Was Ready to Flood Crimea in Blood

As political conflict continues and corruption remains as before even Ukraine’s most fervid Western friends are now in despair
Alexander Mercouris
The Duran,
13 December, 2017

In 2014 Ukraine’s oligarchs overwhelmingly backed the Maidan movement and bankrolled its protests since they were adamantly opposed to closer relations with Russia but wanted instead closer relations with the West.

".....This was because – diametrically opposite to what Western commentators say – they were alarmed by the way Putin’s government after 2000 managed to rein in Russia’s oligarchs, and were alarmed that if Russian influence in Ukraine grew so that Ukraine became fully integrated in the Eurasian institutions the same thing would be done to them.

The Western powers backed Ukraine’s oligarchs in 2014 because their entire policy since the USSR broke up in 1991 has been to detach Ukraine from Russia. This was what the benighted association agreement between the EU and Ukraine – the nominal issue behind the 2014 Maidan protests – was ultimately all about.

It was this mutual opposition to closer ties between Ukraine and Russia which created the commonality of interest between Ukraine’s oligarchs and the Western powers, both in 2014 and earlier, which set the scene for the 2014 Maidan ‘revolution’.

That ‘revolution’ of course needed its foot-soldiers who were to be found in Ukraine’s various ultra-rightist and neo-Nazi groups. However as The Economist slips out in the article which I have quoted from above, these “private militias….answer to different politicians or oligarchs” ie. they are ultimately controlled by the oligarchs as well.

Needless to say the great majority of Ukraine’s people were not involved in the 2014 events, and based on what I am hearing from people who know about the situation in Ukraine today, they have now become utterly cynical and disillusioned...."


greencrow says: Also this week, we have a report that you will never read in the Western Main$tream Media...which has been forbidden by the Satanists from printing any of the connivances and illegal (according to International Law) maneuverings and preparations for wars being indulged in by the Western "governments" and their corporatist Deep State handlers.  Please read this report from yesterday's RT which shockingly discloses that Canada has meekly toddled along after USrael in its "decision" to provide "lethal" weaponry to the Kievian Junta.


"....By including Ukraine on the list of countries approved for lethal weapons sales, Canada has become a side in a bloody civil war, undermining a shaky peace process, a senior Russian senator said, as Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko applauded the move.
Poroshenko praised the US and Canadian governments for stepping up military cooperation with Ukraine, which could lead to lethal weapons from both countries being supplied to the Ukrainian army, embroiled in a long-running civil conflict with rebel militias from breakaway eastern Ukraine’s Donetsk and Lugansk Republics.
“As it was agreed, the United States authorized security assistance for our country and Canada included Ukraine into the Automatic Firearms Country Control List. The door to enhanced defense assistance for Ukraine has been opened,” Poroshenko wrote on Facebook, as US President Donald Trump signed a new Pentagon funding bill and the government in Ottawa revealed its decision to greenlight the export of “certain prohibited firearms, weapons and devices” to Ukraine by including it into its list.

Unlike the Pentagon bill, Canada's decision sets no preconditions for selling the armaments to Ukraine. The Canadian government's only precaution is to examine the export applications on a case-by-case basis, to establish who will be using the weapons and how.
This makes Canada a party to the conflict, says Franz Klintsevich, the first deputy chairman of the Russian Federation Council’s Committee for Defense and Security.
“A very dangerous precedent has been created: Effectively, Canada has become a party to the internal Ukrainian conflict with all ensuing consequences. And this, above all, means that it assumes responsibility for the actions of the Ukrainian forces, trained by Canadian instructors and equipped with Canadian weapons,” Klintsevich said.
Be arming one side, Canada could tip the relative balance of power, fueling the stalled hostilities and shattering the hopes of peace. “To call a spade a spade, Canada has directly opposed the Minsk Accords,” Klintsevich said.
The US approved $500 million in “defensive lethal assistance” to Ukraine on Wednesday as Trump signed into law the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) drafted by Congress in late November.

The act claims that the US should beef up its military presence in Eastern Europe in face of the perceived “Russian aggression,” as well as to help Ukraine to tackle it. However, the allocation of the funds is conditional on the Ukrainian military undergoing “substantial” reforms. It is ultimately up to the US Secretary of State to decide if Ukraine has met the prerequisites.
Russia may take the issue of weapon sales and lethal aid to Ukraine to the UN Security Council, Yuri Schvytkin, deputy chairman of State Duma’s Defense Committee, told RIA Novosti.
A recent report by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) found that US arms sales overseas as well as its ongoing military operations were two main factors that drive global weapons trade, that rose for the first time in five years. With 38 firms that account for combined $217.2 billion in weapon sales, the US ranked first on the list of arms manufacturing countries.
In line with its strategy of encircling Russia with NATO contingents and “purely” defensive military equipment, Washington has recently authorized a shipment of 410 Javelin Missiles as well as 72 Javelin Command Launch Units to Georgia.
The promised delivery was slammed by Moscow, with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin arguing in November that it “directly encourages Tbilisi to new dangerous adventures in the region.”

greencrow says:  That's the way sovereignty dies, folks, not with a bang but a Canada's case...99.9% of the population don't even get to hear the dying whimpers of our Country's sovereign Independence.  The taxpayer funded CBC is virtually mute on the disgraceful support of warmongering and profiteering from the future death and destruction of innocent Novorossyian civilians for the sake of USrael that Canada has been forced to indulge in.

I am old enough to remember when Canada used to stand for something on the International stage.  I remember when Canadian peacekeepers were valued and respected throughout the world...and where Canada sitting at a peace treaty negotiating table meant there would be a voice of objectivity, neutrality and decency.  NOT ANY MORE!  Now our country has the same vile and putrid stench as our neighbours to the south.  I have come to believe that Canada is the most unlucky country in the world by virtue of its geographic location alone...Us, along with Mexico.  Even Ukraine is a luckier country because there's hope that the majority there...who are pro Russian will at the end of the day come forward and reclaim their nation from the Ziofascist, neonazi warmongers.  Canada?  Not so much.

One of the reasons I am feeling so negative about the future of my country is the lack of information on the outcome of the Nuttall/Korody decision that was supposed to have been handed down last October 16, 2017 by the BC Supreme Court of Appeal.  This decision is probably one of the most important legal decisions ever to be handed down by a Canadian Court.  If the Appeal of the Federal Government against the BC Supreme Court Judge--to throw out the case built up by CSIS and the RCMP against the Hapless former addicts...John Nuttall and his wife Amanda Korody....that they conspired to bomb the BC Legislature way back in 2014 is rejected--then, Ipso Facto. those two security agencies, CSIS and the RCMP, will be forced to stop creating patsies for false flags.  The reason they create patsies for false flags is because they are ordered to do so by their USrael handlers in Washington and Tel Aviv.  Not being able to do that anymore would be a small restoration of Canadian terms of our laws and institutions.

BUT No.  There has been nary a word about this BC Supreme Court of Appeal decision since October 16, 2017....when it should have been handed down.  Not a word by the court, the CBC or even the alternative Internet news sites (with the exception of moi).  Do you think that the USrael Deep State ordered the BC Supreme Court of Appeal to "deep six" the case?

Folks, I have written the CBC, the local radio news station News1130 and Ian Mulgrew, the columnist who previously reported on this case for The Vancouver Sun about the lack of news about this decision.  To date, I have heard nothing back.  It is a true mystery.  But your intrepid blogmaster is on the case and stay tuned for further updates.

CawRANT Events #58

CawRANT Events #58

Good morning Everybody!  It's a beautiful sunny, cloudless day in the Lower BC mainland this morning.  The birds are at our backyard bird feeder in droves...chick a dees, golden headed sparrows, Northern Flickers...and we even saw a pair of wild doves.  This species of wild doves used to be in this locality in hundreds of thousands but now are just in the hundreds due mainly to destruction of their preferred environment along the shoreline.  They love to eat the mussels when the tide throws them up on the beaches...they even eat the calcium shells which they need to produce their own egg shells of their young.  It's nice to see them making somewhat of a comeback.

My CawRANT Events will be shorter than usual this morning because I'm heavily into Christmas preparation.  I am still the primary host for the Christmas activities for our family.  We will be having some sleep-over family guests...including my 62 year old brother with Downs Syndrome.  He lives in a staffed residence but comes "home" for holidays.  Since the passing of my sister last year, I'm doing double duty caring for him Christmas AND New Years.  He's very easy going and lots of fun to have around...but it is a very serious business caring for an adult with special needs and definitely a 24/7 job...but well worth it!  My posting on this blog will be necessarily limited over the holidays.  My brother sleeps in my "office" so for that reason alone, I will not be posting as much.  Hopefully the geopolitical world will be somewhat quieter this I don't have to do any "Breaking News" bulletins...or running commentaries...although if things do heat up...God willing....I will be there for my readers!

So with no further's today's CawRANT EVents.  The first item has to do with my favourite leader on this planet...Vladimir Putin.  I see where he made a surprise visit to a Syrian military base this morning and greeted Bashar al Assad along with the Russian commanders at the base.  He made an announcement that--considering that Syria is a sovereign and independent country--and is now largely free from terrorists...Russia will be withdrawing its troops shortly.  Putin is no doubt doing this as an example and precedent so that the Americans...who were NOT invited into Syria as was Russia...will be prompted to leave as well.  It is doubtful that they will of course.  History, unfortunately, has taught us that once Ziofascism has its bloody foot in the does NOT leave...but pushes its way in and sets up permanent bases from which it terrorizes the indigenous population in perpetuity.  Witness Afghanistan and Iraq...just for two local examples.

Putin - Person of the Century
after defeating terrorism/saving Syria
and negotiating Peace Treaties in Ukraine 
as well as the Iran/US nuclear Treaty...STILL

I had to laugh when I saw the news on the CBC that the Nobel Prize committee in Stockholm again awarded the Nobel Peace Prize to nonentities...rather than bestow it on someone who really deserves it 10 times over...Vladimir Putin.  Rather than use the Peace Prize in the manner which Nobel intended when he set up the fund...they will find the most obscure irrelevant group or individual to give the prize to...and thus the Ziofascists,  who have taken over the Nobel Prize Committee, invert the prize and diminish its value...eventually, it will mean nothing and they will abandon it altogether. Please read the following snippet from the CBC to see how they systematically destroy way of a perverted "control demolition" of one of its institutions.

Nobel Peace Prize group urges nuclear powers to adopt ban-the-bomb treaty

The leader of the group that won this year's Nobel Peace Prize on Sunday urged nuclear nations to adopt a United Nations treaty banning atomic weapons in order to prevent "the end of us."

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) was awarded this year's Nobel Peace Prize by a committee that cited the spread of nuclear weapons and the growing risk of an atomic war.

ICAN is a coalition of 468 grassroots non-governmental groups that campaigned for a UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, adopted by 122 nations in July.

The treaty is not signed by — and would not apply to — any of the states that already have nuclear arms. Beatrice Fihn, ICAN's executive director, urged them to sign the agreement.

    Not only is the Nobel Peace Prize being subverted and perverted...but the perps are working overtime to destroy the Olympics. Just last week I posted extensively where the Olympic Committee has seen fit to ban Russia from the 2018 Olympic Games in South Korea.  The spurious grounds are that Russia was found guilty of encouraging its athletes to take prohibited performance enhancing drugs.  But the evidence this is based on was provided solely by a very dubious former Russian sports doctor who is now in the US "Witness Protection Program".  The Russian government has poked enough holes in his "evidence" so that it looks like a block of Swiss Cheese.  Here is more from New York based geopolitical analyst  Michael Averko on the Russian Olympic Athlete ban from 2018 Olympics:

    When the Winter Olympic ban on Russia was first announced, the BBC and some other Western news outlets erroneously claimed that the penalty was because of Russian state sponsored doing - something which the IOC denied - instead stressing a series of doping irregularities among Russian athletes - not proven as part of a Russian government plan.
    To date, the IOC and WADA haven't fully substantiated the claimed evidence of otherwise clean Russian athletes having their samples tampered with at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. These athletes in question have had extensive testing for years inside and outside of Russia.
    Elsewhere, the US based National Public Radio let US WADA legal politico Travis Tygart get away with his suggestion that he's even handed, when he noted his efforts against Lance Armstrong. Missing as follow-up is the fact that Tygart never sought collective punishment against all US cyclists, let alone all US athletes - much different from his stance on Russia. This kind of double standard relates to Canadian sports legal politicos Dick Pound and Richard McLaren.
    The bias against Russia is summed up well in the first part of this article (I take issue with some of what's said at the end of it):  
    An excerpt -

    According to the World Anti-Doping Agency's (WADA) most recent results (2014), the leading sports doping offenders are as follows: Russia (148), Italy (123), India (96), Belgium (91), France (91), Turkey (73), Australia (49), China (49), Brazil (46) and South Korea (43).

    What hasn't been made clear is that these figures encompass all sports, not just Olympic sports
    . As an example, of Australia's 49 offenses, 20 of them came in Rugby League. Should that be used in deciding whether or not to ban Australia from competing in the Olympics? Obviously not.

    What also hasn't been made clear is that it is irrelevant to look at the absolute number of transgressions of any nation in making a decision on whether or not to impose a ban. We would expect the US, for example, to have a much higher number of athletes caught doping than Fiji because the US has far more athletes than that tiny nation. Likewise, it makes sense that Russia would have more athletes caught doping than, say, Bolivia.

    The actual numbers

    When we look at doping offenses by countries in Olympic sports, and the number of athletes they send to the Olympics, we find the following:

    Italy: 104 offenses with 284 athletes; Russia: 91 offenses with 436 athletes; India: 67 offenses with 83 athletes; France: 50 offenses with 330 athletes; China: 46 offenses with 396 athletes; Turkey: 35 offenses with 114 athletes; Brazil: 31 offenses with 258 athletes; Iran: 29 offenses with 53 athletes; South Africa: 27 offenses with 125 athletes; Belgium: 25 offenses with 115 athletes.

    Do the math yourself; by these official numbers, Italy has the most offenses, and from a smaller pool of athletes than Russia. India has a higher rate of offenses than Russia, as does Turkey and Iran. Meanwhile, South Africa and Belgium have virtually the same rate of positive doping as Russia.

    One of the charges is that the Russian Ministry of Sports approved the doping. If so, why would they have done such a poor job as to have fewer people cheating than Italy? Did the Italian Ministry of Sport take part in Italian doping? If not, how could Italy have so many athletes doping without their Sports Ministry knowing?

    Also, who remembers the names of Tyson Gay, Tim Montgomery, Justin Gatlin, Dennis Mitchell, Shawn Crawford and Carl Lewis? Yes, all 100 meter sprinters from the US, all having made the final over the past five or so (summer) Olympic games, some of whom "won" the gold medal. Six American sprinters were all caught doping in the same discipline over decades, but their Sports Ministry knew nothing?

    Or who remembers the Chinese Swim Team from the 1990s? Or the Austrian Ski Team from the 2006 Winter Olympics? None of these Sports Ministries knew anything of the mass doping, yet in every doping case that concerns Russia, we're so sure that the Russian Ministry did?

    Despite these obvious troubling questions, the entire Russian Track and Field Team were banned from the Summer Olympics last year and, just yesterday, all Russian athletes were banned from the upcoming Winter Olympics. Those Russian athletes deemed "clean" will be allowed to participate under a neutral banner - they won't be able to officially represent Russia. This is collective punishment that has no precedent. Not even East Germany suffered a blanket ban during the 1960s, 1970s or 1980s.

    In contrast, the revelation last year that countless Western sports stars are doped to the gills, and that their respective sporting authorities have for years been providing them with quasi-secretive and ethically dubious 'exemptions' to cover their doping practices, made hardly a dent in their reputations, their wallets, and their continued involvement in sports."

    So, this is how the "one trick pony" perps operate.  If they can't defeat you on the battlefield then they will defeat you in the media and the "Court of Public Opinion"...where they own all the networks and all the Institutional Committees--like the Nobel Peace Prize Committee and the International Olympic Committee.  But the perps are going to have to come up with some new tricks soon, because most of humanity is becoming wise to them...and they have one fatal flaw.  They simply cannot operate in the that I mean because they are so evil they need to conceal their diabolical pretend the Nobel Peace Prize and the IOC are autonomous and NOT under their control.  Once everyone knows that these committees ARE under their control...the scheme automatically collapses.  Same with war.  Israel has to use proxies to fight its battles for land in the Middle East.  Once it runs out of proxies (the US and or the Saudis refuse to do its bidding) then its Hezbollah has shown on several occasions by chasing the Israeli invading military out of little Lebanon.  So it's only a matter of time...unless Israel can bring on Armageddon...ergo....the constant warmongering and ratchetting up of world tension.

    Just to change the topic for a moment...or perhaps not...maybe NASA is run by the same perps that control the Nobel Peace Prize Committee and the IOC.  Here is more Proof Man Never Went to the Moon that I saw the other day in The Sleuth Journal:

    Van Allen Radiation Belts

    According to the article in The Sleuth Journal, the Van Allen Radiation Belts make extra-orbital Space Travel impossible and apparently NASA has even admitted as much.  So why does NASA still cling to the tattered belief that the US went to the Moon several times in the 60's and early 70's?  And, more disturbingly...why does Russia (who MUST know the truth) not tell the World that the Apollo Moon Missions were a huge and elaborate hoax played on humanity?  Well, I have given my theory about that several times on this blog.  In the 60's and 70's Russia was in hard times and due to several years of bad crops could not feed its people.  Canada supplied free (or nominally priced) wheat to Russia during those years.  I believe that was "shut up" money.

    Yet another Institution that is under constant threat of "controlled demolition" by the usual suspects is the United Nations.  It's not working for them anymore.  In other words, they can't use it for their own purposes of global hegemony because of its democratic constitution.  If the decisions are based on a vote...then that's IT for Ziofascism on this planet. USrael ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, was railing about this fact of life on the floor of the UN last week:

    Here is a Report on her tirade from the Voice of Satan, the BBC

    "UN Openly Hostile to Israel - US Ambassador to UN Nikki Haley"

    Haley was alleging that...wait for it....there's a CONSPIRACY against Israel in the United Nations.  There was a time...and not too long ago either...when USrael said there was NO SUCH THING as conspiracies...ever. Now they're finding them everywhere....

    The issue under debate was the sudden and mystifying decision by Trump to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem.  Apparently this move is illegal under International Law...but when did that ever matter?  The decision was almost universally condemned...There was a report in PressTV news the other day where 100 Jewish Studies Scholars signed a petition opposing the move.  But no matter.  Even Google has suddenly "vanished" the link I had to the above PressTV I am unable to link to it....and there have been huge problems with posting in general this morning, folks.  NOTE:  I found the link about the 100 Jewish studies Scholars.  It was originally published in The Hill.

    So, on that note, I will end this CawRANT Events with the hope that all my wonderful readers are enjoying this pre-Christmas energizing time of year...Snow is in the forecast here for the 22nd...

    Bye for now and get out and enjoy life!

    Education: A Tale of Two Cultures

    Russian Pilot displays
    Pilot Skill and technical genius
    of SU-30 Fighter Jet

    Watch the above video posted this morning on Veterans Today and see the superb skill of the Russian Pilot as he maneuvers his SU-30 fighter jet within meters of a large Russian cargo transport plane seconds after it has dumped tons of humanitarian supplies in Syria.

    During our trip to Russia in 2014 I was privileged to be allowed into an ordinary Russian highschool and classroom where the students (even though it was still summer break) honoured us Western tourists with a short talk and question and answer period on the Russian style of education.  The students were, at the same time, practicing their English as this project was part of their curriculum.  It shows the genius of Russian educators to give practical experience along with academic studies.

    The highschool we were in was a "tear down" had it been in my home neighbourhood.  The paint was peeling and there were cracks in the walls.  The floors creaked...and there was that musty smell that told of decades of sweaty bodies running up and down the halls to classes.  The classrooms were straight out of the 50's.  Straight rows of student desks/chairs made out of wood and steel.  The teacher's desk faced the rows and there were blackboards along the walls.  It made me sad that my sons could not have been educated in such a space.  No, they had to endure creative seating arrangements--where four student desks faced each other--butting right up so there was no room for focusing on the teacher or topic.  There was no TV in the Russian Classrooms.  These students were not bombarded with that inane, brainwashing tripe Charlie and the Chocolate Factory film being shown year after year...until they knew every scene by my sons were.  We were told by the Russian high school students that they had to choose one foreign language to learn and the languages they could chose from were English, French or German.  The effort the brain goes to through learn a foreign language is a great strenghener of the brain "muscles".  Also, educators have said that the effort to master cursive writing is similarly a "brain strengthener"...learning cursive writing has been down played in Western has been spelling and grammar.


    Over on The Sleuth Journal...we have a report that parents are suing the State of California because their children are unable to read. Please read the following from the post and I will have final thoughts in comments to follow:


    California Is Being Sued Because So Few Of Their Public School Children Can Read

    School Is Way More Boring Than When You Were There

    At one elementary school in California, 96 percent of the students are not proficient in either English or math.  How is that even possible?  Unfortunately, the more the federal government gets involved in education, the worse it seems to get.  At one time the United States had the greatest system of public education on the entire planet, but these days we only seem to make headlines when news comes out about how poorly we are doing.  This has been a hot button issue for me for a long time, but even I was surprised when I learned that the state of California is actually being sued because so few of their public school children can read…
    A group of prominent lawyers representing teachers and students from poor performing schools sued California on Tuesday, arguing that the state has done nothing about a high number of schoolchildren who do not know how to read.
    The advocacy law firm, Public Counsel, filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court to demand the California Department of Education address its “literacy crisis.” The state has not followed suggestions from its own report on the problem five years ago, the lawsuit said.

    So exactly how bad is this “literacy crisis”?
    Well, according to this lawsuit less than 50 percent of all third, fourth and fifth grade students in the state of California meet minimum standards for literacy…

    English assessments found less than half of California students from third grade to fifth grade have met statewide literacy standards since 2015.Both traditional and charter schools are failing, Rosenbaum said.
    Of the 26 lowest-performing districts in the nation, 11 are in California, according to the lawsuit. Texas, the largest state after California, has only one district among the 26.

    If we want our nation to have a positive future, we must do something about this.
    We desperately need to start raising our standards.  These days, virtually all testing consists of either multiple choice, true/false or fill in the blank questions.  Instead of teaching our kids how to think, we are training them how to regurgitate answers, and that is the wrong approach.
    I believe that we need to throw out Common Core all across the country and return to the basics.  Our young people need to learn how to communicate, and so I would love to see a renewed focus on reading, writing and speaking.
    In addition, we need to start training our young people for the careers of tomorrow.  I believe that we need an emphasis on science, technology, engineering and math, because we are starting to fall behind other nations.  In particular, India and China combined are now pumping out 12 times as many engineering graduates each year as we are, and that is a major problem.
    For those that are not bound for college, we need to make cutting edge vocational training available for them.  Every high school student should be ready to enter the workforce after graduation, and today that simply is not happening.
    As a member of Congress, I will fight to fix our deeply broken system of education, and if you believe in what I am trying to do I hope that you will join the team.  I very much agree with Charlotte Iserbyt’s prescription for our schools in “The Deliberate Dumbing Down Of America”, and if you have not read that book yet you definitely should.
    Doing nothing is simply not an option, because our children and our grandchildren are literally the future of this nation.  We can do so much better than this, but first we must admit that what we are doing right now is definitely not working.

    greencrow says: Yes, the disastrous education in the West has been going on since at least the 1950's.  Billions of dollars have been poured into "flavor of the month" educational fads and gimmicks.  All the textbooks in the west are published by the 'usual suspects' corporations...and are  thus are stuffed with lies, "selective history", hoaxes and irrelevancies. The formula for educating children was tested and tried for hundreds of years before the 1950's.  Sit the children in separate desks facing the teacher.  Teach them brain exercising subjects like basic reading, math (adding, subtracting and multiplying in their heads--NOT with calculators!) spelling and cursive writing.  Expose them to foreign languages, music, art and public speaking/debate (using Roberts Rules of Order so they don't scream over each other, like on the Gerry Springer show, when they're being interviewed on TV as adults).  Above all, teach them critical thinking skills--so that they can successfully work out/assess probabilities and avoid black and white thinking and lies when they are told them.

    All the above have been systematically either removed or dumbed down in the West.  Consequently, while Russians are leading the world in technology and flying planes that defy the laws of physics...Americans and Canadians are struggling with basic reading and math.  All I have to ask as a final comment is....

    Qui Bono?

    IOC Bows to Anti-Russian Pressure - a guest post by Michael Averko

    Olympic Rings

    Michael Averko started sending e-mails to my e-mail address published at the top of my blog some years ago.  He's a New York based foreign policy analyst and media critic. I found this in my in basket this morning -- and it fleshes out what I said yesterday in my post about the banning of Russia from the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.  Folks, from what Michael is alleging this looks to be just another New York Times the yellowcake "Weapons of Mass Destruction" scam that started the Iraq War.  The New York spite of its past history of telling notorious lies and its pathetically small readership...the New York Times still has very deep pockets and very, very Deep State gonnections.

    "IOC Bows to Anti-Russian Pressure
    By Michael Averko
    Numerous unanswered questions remain regarding the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) ban of Russia at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. Clean Russian athletes will be permitted to participate under the name "Olympic Athlete from Russia". Gold medal winning Russians will be "honored" with the flying of the Olympic flag and anthem. In the weeks leading up to the IOC decision, Western based English language mass media was stacked with extremely mis-informative commentary, which favored a collective punishment of Russia.  

    The New York Times (NYT) and some others actively suggested the insulting singling out of Russia which the IOC has approved. Days before the planned December 5 decision on Russia's 2018 Winter Olympics status, the so-called "whistleblower" Grigory Rodchenkov, advocated (in The NYT) a formal Russian Winter Olympic ban, with only clean Russians participating as neutrals. Responsible patriots the world over can criticize their respective country in a fair and balanced manner, that's not intended to unfairly bring shame to their country. That desire is different from Rodchenkov's NYT approved advocacy.

    Rodchenkov is essentially a NYT puppet. That "paper of record" has run a series of exclusives with him. Otherwise, Rodchenkov hasn't been readily available for critical (not puff segment) follow-up. It'd be journalistically and legally appropriate to see his full unedited "diary", that supposedly details a direct Russian government connection to sports doping. To date, some cherry picked quotes from that recollection have been released.  

    Rodchenkov has made a series of extraordinary claims about a concerted Russian government involved effort to cover-up Russian doping at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Ethically, he's a failed medical doctor, who was fired from his sports related position in Russia for having engaged in illicit activity. After getting canned, Rodchenkov's take against some others, serves to take attention away from the stated basis for his getting released. With that in mind, it's inappropriate to accept his claims without clear proof.  

    Legally going after Rodchenkov (as has been suggested) is a limited move. Elements within the IOC and World Doping Agency (WADA) have declared him “credible”. Hence, Rodchenkov isn’t the sole source to legally pursue. Regardless, there’s also the matter of a very unsympathetic (to Russian concerns) Western influenced factor, thereby making it difficult to successfully prosecute Rodchenkov and his IOC/WADA supporters.

    On this score, the Western chauvinist reply will casually claim a paranoid irrational conspiratorial mindset. Upon further review, the opposite exists, inclusive of some unpunished, unethical advocacy, that has been very much covered up in the "free press".

    At the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics, the IOC gave authority to the individual sports federations to decide on how their respective sport should be monitored. The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), launched a near complete ban of Russians from the track and field competition at that Olympiad. Darya Klishina was the lone exception, on account of her being US based. Just before Klishina's event, there was a crude last ditch effort to have her banned. Other than Klishina, clean Russian track and field athletes weren't allowed to compete at the last Summer Olympics.
    To date, the IAAF maintains a policy of clean Russian athletes participating as neutrals. The IAAF very recently upheld this stance. The timing of that announcement served to influence the anti-Russian ban for the upcoming Winter Olympics.

    Concerning Russia, the IAAF President Sebastian Coe, is on record (from months ago) for seeking to share his federation's experience with other sporting bodies. Coe has shown little, if any concern for the clean Russian track and field athletes, who were denied Olympic participation at Rio. It's not as if these Russian athletes were never tested outside of Russia, while seeking further testing. Coe's morally flawed behavior is highlighted by his effort to get drug cheat Yulia Stepanova to compete at Rio, unlike the clean Russian athletes, including legendary pole vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva and world class hurdler Sergey Subchenkov. Coe's motivation has been influenced by Stepanaova and her ex-husband making negatively unsubstantiated claims against Russian track and field athletes, in a German TV aired propaganda documentary. Keep in mind that Stepanova got busted for doping in Russia Her seemingly changed attitude happened after that development.

    The just announced IOC decision against Russia is said to be based on new "evidence" obtained since the 2016 Summer Olympics. Canadian sports legal politicos Dick Pound and Richard McLaren, are among the leading anti-Russian proponents. They've indicated a satisfaction if the Russian government formally acknowledged fault for something that hasn't been substantively proven and remains quite dubious. Specifically, the claim that Russian athletes en masse have been doped through a clandestine Kremlin supported effort to achieve athletic success.

    This dubious charge states that about 1,000 Russian athletes participated in that regimen. Upon further review, one finds that figure to exceed the number of Russian athletes who were available to compete in the last Winter and Summer Olympics and Paralympics. (Care of some extreme Western chauvinism, Russia was completely banned from the 2016 Summer Paralympics.) Yet, the overwhelming majority of these Russian Olympians/Paralympians haven't been found guilty of a doping infraction.

    On the one hand, we're told that the Russian government masterminded a sophisticated clandestine system of cheating. This alleged covert operation appears clumsy in not having its tracks covered, as exhibited by releasing Rodchenkov in the way pursued. Rather interestingly, the December 5 IOC decision emphasized Russian Olympic Committee culpability for faulty anti-doping testing, without implicating the Russian government.

    As of this writing, it remains to be seen what the level of Russian participation will be in Pyeongchang. In Russia, there've been mixed messages on this particular. There's also the matter of Russian athletes being held to much higher drug testing standards than other athletes. With that in mind, it might be hypothetically possible for clean Russian athletes to be denied, unlike those who've not been as strenuously tested. This scenario can happen on the premise that a Russian athlete hasn't been adequately tested enough - even though such a person has been typically more arduously screened than their non-Russian peers. It's sheer crock to believe that sports doping is an exclusively Russian phenomena.

    Whatever the Russian participation in Pyeongchang, Russian fans should proudly wave their country's tri-color, while loudly chanting Rossiya! Symbolically, these acts will serve as a well deserved middle finger to the sanctimonious blowhard likes of Dick Pound, who has been especially pious."

    Price of Peace in Syria Continued....Russia Banned from Olympics 2018 in South Korea

    I’ll destroy all Russian Olympic sports for next 5 years’
    – revelations of runaway WADA informant
    "Slander by Turncoat" the Kremlin sums up
    the case based on testimony by Grigory Rodchenkov

    Russian Olympic Committee banned from 2018 Winter Games, athletes allowed to compete as neutrals
    It's coming thick and fast now...twice today, Ziofacists have used their absolute control over the West and its Institutions [i.e., the government of the United States and the IOC] to punish Russia and its allies for winning the war for Syria.

    Earlier today I posted about the US announcing [like the puppet it is] to move its embassy to Jerusalem.  Now it has used its corrupt moles in the International Olympic Committee to ban Russia from participating in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in South Korea.

    Please read the report from RT on the topic...which blows the cover off the machinations used by Ziofascists to corrupt WADA into making a purely political decision against Russia and I will have more thoughts in comments to follow:


    "The WADA informant who accused Russia of state-sanctioned athletic doping said that he “does not care about the fight against doping” in a video released by a Russian TV channel. The fate of Team Russia’s participation in the 2018 Olympics is to be decided on Tuesday.
    On December 2, Russia’s NTV aired extracts from three different videos purportedly showing the former Moscow anti-doping lab chief, Grigory Rodchenkov, making a series of shocking statements. In one video, a man who strongly resembles Rodchenkov admits that he “does not care about the fight against doping.”
    In another clip, the same man says that he’s a “terrible person” who has “sold his soul” – although he was quick to point out that his “price had risen.” He goes on to boast that his “expensive” apartment in Los Angeles and latest-model Infiniti “are paid for” in full.
    “I’ll make sure you have one positive sample of 20,000. I’ll make sure I have 100 samples, and I will destroy all Olympic sports of Russia for the next five years!” the person believed to be Rodchenkov declares in one of the videos obtained by NTV. The channel did not elaborate on the details of the videos’ origins.
    Rodchenkov fled Russia for the US in November 2015. His testimony about alleged misconduct by Russian authorities during the 2014 Sochi Olympics formed the basis for a World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) report authored by Canadian lawyer Richard McLaren. The report, released in July 2016, claims that Russian athletes participated in systematic doping with the full knowledge of the Kremlin.
    Acting on McLaren’s recommendations, the IOC banned Russian track-and-field athletes from participating in the 2016 Rio Olympics and excluded the entire Russian team from the Paralympics.
    In September of this year, a Moscow court ordered Rodchenkov’s arrest in absentia. He is wanted on charges of abuse of authority, and Russia is currently seeking his extradition from the US.
    Rodchenkov doesn’t seem to dispute that he is guilty of serious wrongdoing. “I have [committed] all sins except pedophilia, homosexuality and drug trafficking,” Rodchenkov confesses in one of the videos.
    The language of the man in the videos is quite offensive, apparently induced by alcohol, as he suggests himself. At one point he breaks into a tirade against a “fat Negro.” He continues: “What an idiot... [She] walks and drops a bin full of dog sh*t – what a country this is!” the man in the video says, adding that he’s not surprised “all Americans are so rude.
    Rodchenkov has previously taken credit for developing a three-drug cocktail of banned substances that he mixed with liquor. He claims he provided the elixir to Russian athletes during the 2014 Sochi Winter games.
    However, in one of the videos released by the NTV, Rodchenkov insists that the recipe for “Duchess,” the name of his now-infamous cocktail, actually has American origins. He says the idea came to him after he was inspired by the works of prohormones-industry researcher William Llewellyn.
    The person in the video also reveals he “almost killed himself,” committing a hara-kiri, and admits he used to be a patient at the Kashchenko psychiatric hospital.
    Moscow has repeatedly disputed Rodchenkov’s whistleblower status, pointing out that he was actively involved in the crimes he now accuses others of committing. Russia’s Investigative Committee said in November that they gathered enough evidence showing that Rodchenkov destroyed the doping tests of athletes in violation of the requirements of the International Standard for Laboratories of the World Anti-Doping Agency, as well as the agency's letters regarding the whereabouts of the samples.

    Rodchenkov is enrolled in a witness protection program in the US, according to both Russian and Western media reports.
    Pressurized by anti-doping organizations that take Rodchenkov’s claims at face value, the IOC will meet on December 5 to decide whether Russian athletes will be allowed to participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics.
    The International Paralympics Committee (IPC) has already decided to uphold its blanket ban on Russian athletes in the upcoming Winter Paralympics.

    greencrow says:  Well, folks...unlike the previous post today describing the vendetta the West has launched against Russia and her allies for winning the war in Syria...this one does not involve persecution of an already oppressed people--the Palestinians...and is much easier to solve.

    All Russia needs to do is drop out of the IOC completely and take its allies with it...lemmeesee....that would include all its caucuses "stan" allies...North Korea...China, India...Venezuela, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Cuba, Belarus, Czechia, Iran and who knows what other countries will protest the unjust ploy.  Of course these Olympic drop outs could hold their own international sports event elsewhere than in South Korea.

    Personally, I have no interest whatsoever in watching an Olympics that does not include Russia.  Judging from the popularity of Russia in the world today...I believe I speak for hundreds of millions of others in all countries...including the West.

    So, in summary...can we now tally up the current victims sacrificed to Ziofascist revenge?

    1.  Palestine
    2.  The Olympic Movement

    ...and no doubt, there will be more. 

    The Price of Peace in Syria....US stokes fires of new Regional War in Palestine

    Trump is Planning to Move the US Embassy
    to Jerusalem

    Hard on the heels of the devastating loss to the US and Israel in their Syrian Proxy War...the United States has announced a virtual declaration of war against the incarcerated (in the largest open air concentration camp in history) Palestinians.

    This is typical modus operendi for the neocon ziofascist warmongers...never reflect on a loss...or, Satan forbid, ever accept responsibility for it.  Just make a lightning-fast distractive move to another theatre of operations...and create diabolical war and chaos there.  In the case at hand, please read the following report from RT below.  Note how the US's decision to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem is being received by other nations in the Middle East and Europe.  This decision has the potential to blow the fragile world peace sky high:


    Trump informs Abbas of intention to move US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem
    Donald Trump has informed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas of his intention to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, a spokesperson for Abbas said. The Palestinian president told Trump the move would have "dangerous consequences."
    "President Mahmoud Abbas received a telephone call from U.S. President Donald Trump in which he notified the President (Abbas) of his intention to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem," spokesman Nabil Abu Rdainah said in a statement, which did not specify when the move could happen.
    "President Abbas warned of the dangerous consequences such a decision would have to the peace process and to the peace, security and stability of the region and of the world," Abu Rdainah said.
    The White House confirmed that Trump spoke to a number of Middle East leaders on Tuesday, ahead of his expected announcement about the US embassy. Spokesperson Sarah Sanders said the US president had spoken to or planned to speak to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Jordan's King Abdullah.
    It comes after reports emerged on Friday that Trump would be recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel this week, with AP and Reuters citing unnamed sources within the US administration. That report sparked a wave of reactions across the Muslim world.
    One of those reactions was from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who warned earlier on Tuesday that US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital would be a "red line" for Muslims. He also said the step would prompt Ankara to cut diplomatic ties with Israel.
    On Monday, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said during a televised conference that US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital would be a "major catastrophe."
    "If the [current] status of Jerusalem is changed and another step is taken... that would be a major catastrophe," Bozdag said. "It would completely destroy the fragile peace process in the region, and lead to new conflicts, new disputes and new unrest."
    Following the initial report that Trump might acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish State, the Palestinian Authority and Arab League warned against the move, saying it would increase instability and put an end to the peace process. Hamas has also threatened more violence in Jerusalem if Washington recognized the city as the capital of Israel.
    Jordan also began moving to convene an emergency meeting of the Arab League and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) if Washington went ahead with the move. The Palestinian Authority's foreign minister, Riyad al-Maliki also asked the heads of the Arab League and the OIC to host emergency meetings.
    Despite the reports that Trump was planning on formally recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital, it was believed that he would once again delay his campaign promise to move the US embassy from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv.
    Israel has been actively urging the US to relocate its diplomatic mission, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saying in May that such a move would contribute to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process by "shattering the Palestinian fantasy that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel." The Palestinians have been adamantly opposed to that notion from the beginning, with Palestine's UN envoy stating in November 2016 that Palestinians would make life "miserable" for the US if it transferred its embassy to Jerusalem.
    German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel also warned on Monday that any move by Washington to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital could deepen the Middle East conflict. "Recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel does not calm a conflict, rather it fuels it even more," he said, as quoted by AP. He added that such a move "would be a very dangerous development."

    Palestine Then


    Palestine Now

    It made perfect sense to me...but then, I have a fatal flaw when analyzing the neocon, ziofascist warmongers...I'm not insane.  So, looking at this decision through the current lense--after all the months since The Donald was running for the presidency...and observing how since elected he has been totally hogtied and bestraddled by both the US Deep State and the Ziofascist leaders of a modern day Gulliver in Lilliput:

    Gulliver tied down by the Lilliputians
    looks like the Donald Trump/United States
    tied down by Israel

    I realize now how wrong and misguided I was in thinking that:  a) Donald was a good negotiator; and b) the Deep State would ever allow him to govern the United States or indeed, have any power whatsoever.  I now oppose the move of the US embassy to Jerusalem on the basis of common sense and logic.

    So, it appears as though the US Deep State (whoever they are) is determined to have its greater Middle East War by whatever means possible.  It wanted to drag the United States and Russia into a conflict situation, including WWIII, over Syria...but, when that immediately got off that dead horse and jumped on another war horse...the war against the Palestinians..for what remains of the land that has been stolen from them by the foreign Khazars since WWII.  

    IMO, the most important information contained in the RT report copied above is the reference to Turkey's reaction to the move.  Turkey's President Erdogan apparently 
    .....warned earlier on Tuesday that US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital would be a "red line" for Muslims. He also said the step would prompt Ankara to cut diplomatic ties with Israel..."

    Well, now....isn't that an interesting potential development.  A possible war between Israel and Turkey.  Is this the same Turkey that the US has had a grave falling out with over the attempted coup and the CIA protection of the coup meister, Gulen?  I think so.

    The fall-out from a USrael war with Turkey would potentially, at the very least, destroy NATO, the United Nations, AND lead to WWIII.  But with the loss of Turkey by the West almost a fait accompli anyway...might as well muddy the waters as to WHY Turkey has been lined up as the latest bête noire.

    Like I said at the beginning...the fatal flaw of the Ziofascists is and always has been their genetic inability to reflect on and/or learn from their past mistakes and/or change course from their overall agenda here on earth...mass destruction, chaos, death and mayhem.
