Hurtling at warp-speed towards the history of Russia/Ukraine/the former East Germany and on into NATO, courtesy of comments thread “Richard“: “Kimble gets the risk but not the cause. NATO is the aggressor, not Russia. The war didn’t start last February, it started when Bush 1 lied to Gorbachev that East Germany would be the last addition to NATO. What followed was the Drang nach Osten of Clinton/Bush 2 with one country after another joining NATO while Russia was weak.”
“Then the US staged the coup in Ukraine in 2014 installing an anti-Russian government. This government was not only against Russia the country, but against its own citizens who were ethnic Russians. This was poking the bear one time too many and the Russians responded with the takeover of Crimea and helping the ethnic Russian separatists in the Donbas.”
“There was a welcome pause while Trump was President but Ukraine went right on shelling the separatists in the Donbas. What happened last year was some combination of a new NATO approach to Ukraine and what Putin could have only perceived as a US invitation to do something. Perhaps some day we will know whether the latter was a trap or just more of Biden’s confusion.” [end]
Fast-forward to the very real act of war – aka the US destruction of the Nordstream pipelines that provided energy from Russia to Germany. This was a blatant act of war, having been threatened by FJBiden a few months prior to its happening. It was a real violent act against the German people by the US and an act of war against Russia, whose property it represented. These cowardly covert actions by the US are real, the nuclear stuff is just theater. Putin has no intention of using those weapons, but there should be no doubt that the US would use nuclear or biological weapons at the drop of a hat as long as it could be done in a similar covert and cowardly way.
Until Jan 6, the “color revolution” was just as much a CIA opp as was the FBI opp of J6. The growing MAGA base of the Republican Party now sees how right Eisenhower was about the military-industrial complex. It always needs fresh wars to feed its greed, and the Uniparty elite is always eager to oblige. People are finally beginning to wake up too, the shelf life of lies not being long enough, since truth always wins as a matter of course.
All the Uniparty promotes are lies based upon lies as they push more lies. They’ve been totally exposed as never before, and We the (90 million+) People won’t be fooled again.

This President’s Day, our president was overseas promising money to the Ukrainian president, while Donald Trump offered aid and comfort to American victims in East Palestine.
Once again, Elon Musk nailed the zeitgeist, or a least a hefty portion of it, in a meme he tweeted. The image shows a soda dispenser. Two spigots are visible, blue on the left, red on the right. The index and middle fingers of someone’s right hand are pushing buttons to dispense blue and red fluid, respectively, into a single cup. A label on the left dispenser reads, “Laughing at WWIII memes.” On the right, the label reads, “Kinda being worried about WWIII.” Is there any sane person who, contemplating what is happening in Ukraine, does not share that ambivalence?
Until recently, worries about nuclear Armageddon seemed so 1950s and ’60s. Ancient history. The era of “duck and cover.” That “public service” film started life in earnest but in time became a joke. A comment on an internet posting of the clip summed up the attitude: “When I watched this film in grade school in the ’50s, I believed I’d soon be dead, crispy-fried. I just watched again here and laughed so hard I couldn’t finish.”
Why the laughter? Partly because everyone realizes that crouching under a desk with your hands over your head will not afford much protection against a nuclear blast. (Hence the frequent, somewhat rude addendum to the precautionary instructions: “Crouch down under your desk; put your head between your legs; kiss your ass goodbye.”)
Decades went by. There was no nuclear attack. Therefore there would never be a nuclear attack. That was the unspoken if faulty logic.
There are several different currents of thought and sentiment that make up the dominant consensus. One flowed from the doctrine of deterrence and “mutually assured destruction.” That seems to have worked for decades, bolstering both faith in the doctrine and the widespread forgetfulness about the stakes behind the policy.

[+] … This past week, Joe Biden paid a surprise visit to Ukraine. Rumors that his son Hunter asked him to pick up his missing paychecks are, of course, just vicious conservative taunts. Questioned about public support for U.S. spending on Ukraine, Joe Biden suggested that most people are behind it, except for “right-wing Republicans” and “the MAGA crowd.”
At the same time that Joe Biden was serenading Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kiev, Donald Trump was visiting the people of East Palestine, Ohio, which was reeling from the effects of a terrible toxic catastrophe after a freight train derailed and caught fire. Some observers noted the irony that on President’s Day, the U.S. president was visiting and promising money to the Ukrainian president while Donald Trump went to a local disaster in the United States and offered aid and comfort to American victims. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) spoke for many when he observed that “you can either be the party of Ukraine & the globalists or you can be the party of East Palestine & the working people of America.”
For many, that is the choice we are facing. The introduction of nuclear weapons into the calculus only sharpens the dichotomy. [end]

Look back in history and you’ll find every country in NATO plus the wannabes and plus Japan, have been involved in invasions of Russia at least once. Britain and France once invaded Russia in support of the Turks of all people. Poland took Moscow twice plus they came along for the ride with Napoleon. In 1919 they took Kiev and Minsk. More or less every country in Europe joined Napoleon’s invasion or Hitler’s – if not both at least with volunteers.
The US, UK, France, Japan, Canada, Italy, and even Greece had troops in Russia in 1919 as well. What is generally called the German invasion in 1941 included Rumanians, Italian, Finnish, Hungarian, Slovak and Spanish troops. The SS included units from France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Norway and others. Americans may be historically illiterate, but Russians aren’t, and they know this stuff better than the back of their hands.
There’s a Great Awakening to truth happening and not just in America but throughout the Western world. Look at what happened in Brazil. The commie media wouldn’t even cover it because it was a stunning repudiation of the globalist deep state. Lula “won” for now, but he has no more credibility than the fraud in the White House. It’s a thrilling time to be alive, and one can only say, “better late than never” !
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – Warrior-President Donald John Trump – MAGA! KAG!
