A US grouping, constituted around the thought of the philosopher Leo Strauss, controls from now on both the Secretariat of Defense and the Secretariat of State. After having organized many wars since those of Yugoslavia, they imagined the one in Ukraine. It is now manipulating the European Union and is preparing to deprive it of energy sources. If European leaders do not open their eyes, their alliance with Washington will lead to the collapse of the Union’s economy. There is no point in believing that Europeans will be spared because they are developed. The Straussians wrote, as early as 1992, that they would not hesitate to destroy Germany and the EU. read full story / add a comment

The world still applauds the great effort that our government made in advocating negotiations for peace that led to a settlement, and the 1998 Good Friday Agreement on this island.

So why is our present government, rejecting neutrality, and refusing to lead the campaign for negotiations for peace to end the horrific Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Instead, we are parroting pro-western/NATO war propaganda, that Ukraine can win this war, with more weapons, and that at the same time we can help destroy the Russian economy. read full story / add a comment

A recent video from Gonzalo Lira who lives in Ukraine and has been making regular videos on the war has suggested the US is likely to assassinate the puppet leader of Ukraine, Zelensky because the war is going very badly for them and the disaster for the US and NATO is going to make Afghanistan look mild. They need to turn the tables and generate as much chaos and problems as possible in Ukraine so as to dump it at the feet of Russia and hope that it bleeds them dry.

In many ways this was the game-plan of the NATO provoked war all along. read full story / add a comment

In this recent episode they have a discussion with Larry Johnson who is a former veteran of the CIA and the State Department’s with extensive experience and knowledge has been bringing a lot of sober analysis and logical sense to the debate on the current Ukrainian Russian war which regrettly in the mainstream media is just 100% pure propaganda and lies.

The Duran team and Larry got together and discussed all those important issues of narrative. This is a must listen interview for anyone interested in current events and the insanity of the West. It is particularly recommended to anyone who has been only read the tribe in the mainstream media. read full story / add a comment

This is an account by a Chechen Soldier in Mariupol recalling his first combat experience against the Ukraine Neo Nazi Azov Battalion who have been taking hostage Ukrainians as human shields and how this became a reality for him.

April 25, 2022. Zaur – Military serviceman of Akhmat-Khadzhi Kadyrov’s Regiment:. Translated and subtitled by Leo V.

It’s possible that before I came here, I doubted [the stories] a little bit. But back then when we freed the first prisoners from the house, which was directly situated nearby the Azovstal’ [factory], when those prisoners and civilians came out from the basements, they hugged and kissed us. And told us that they are happy to see us. They cried with tears in their eyes! I then realized that I ended up exactly for… (holding back emotions) what was needed. And I don’t doubt one drop that it was the right idea.

Dear Editor,

Change we would all agree is essential if the world is not destined to endure further destruction and devastation and even a third world war .

A ceasefire in Ukraine and the declared neutrality of Ukraine long sought after by Russia would be beneficial to all concerned.

Would this not be preferable to an escalation of armed conflict which is all too often the preferred option in a world conditioned and habituated to the belief that the world is divided up into goodies and baddies. “We” being preternaturally the “goodies”.

The conflict in Ukraine was not opened by Russia on February 24, but by Ukraine a week before. The OSCE is a witness to this. This peripheral conflict had been planned by Washington to impose a New World Order from which Russia, then China, were to be excluded. Don’t be fooled! read full story / add a comment

As usual she has more guts than anyone else and cuts through the relentless BS

The EU economic war against Russia does nothing to help innocent Ukrainian citizens, victims of this illegal war. Russia is undeterred, while EU citizens face disastrous inflation, rocketing energy costs, and a historic decline in living standards. This is madness…

All this pretense of the establishment that it is liberal, democratic and peace loving is sickening as they are anything but. In this report, we can see that the US is happily spending tax payers money to arm neo-nazi thugs in the Ukraine to uphold their own foreign policy objectives by using the latest technology of suicide drones. The report speaks for itself.

The $300 million lethal aid package for Ukraine that the Pentagon announced Friday will include the latest Switchblade combat drones, Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin confirmed Tuesday.

According to Bloomberg, the White House previously announced a shipment of “series 300” Switchblade drones, which weigh 3.3 pounds, can fly about six miles and stay aloft for about 15 minutes, and are “designed to attack personnel and light vehicles” with a warhead roughly equivalent to a 40mm grenade.

The Left have always rightly and correctly criticized government narratives, their actions and policies and never more so in the case of foreign adventures and wars. However in the past 15 years the woke brigade has largely taken over and ultimately have ended up serving the interests of the neo liberal corporate elite. In the case of the Covid scamdemic the Left capitulated completely and became cheer leaders for tyrannical restrictions and lockdowns. Despite many on the Left recognizing Big Pharma is totally corrupt, they pushed the so called vaccines for which there is now overwhelming evidence to show they are downright dangerous and are both seriously injuring huge numbers of people and killing many too.

It is against this background of capitulation that there are still bright spots and a few relatively sane and honest people remaining and that one of the well known figures in Socialism, David North from the WSWS website has come out strongly against the MSM narrative. bursting their bubble and given an honest background and context to the Russian - Ukrainian conflict. His letter reproduced here is in response to a webinar in the US which clearly followed the mainstream narrative.

This is the address of of former Vatican Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Carlo Viganò, in his declaration on Monday. Wh is it published here. Because it matters that even the official church denounces the tactics of Biden and NATO who provoke this war and are doing everything possible to give moral support to the Neo Nazis so as to prolong the war as long as possible for their own objectives.

The Russian Ukraine war is now is over a week long and for many who are trying to understand what it is all about that is proving difficult. The sheer scale of the relentless propaganda is astounding and the hate that is being encouraged and fueled for all things Russian is frightening. Once again as with the Covid scamdemic the way in which people have lapped up the fear porn and refused to carry out any level of critical thinking is scary.

One thing that is obvious to those who stop and think for a moment is the complete absence of any kind of context and background to the whole thing. We are just being relentlessly push to believe that Putin in Hitler 2.0 and it all hinges on him and that he is evil. There is also outright hate and racism being whipped up and there are many reports of Russian students being booted off their course and various Russians being cancelled. The aim here is to rebalance things a bit and provide that context so that a more informed view can be made of the situation read full story / add a comment
