Beyond Delusion

BY WINSLOW MYERS Tucker, YouTube screen shot. Putin demonstrated in his “interview” with Tucker Carlson the delusional version of Russian history that rationalizes his brutality. Hamas and Netanyahu continue to demonstrate Auden’s classic line: “Those to whom evil is done, do evil in return.” It often seems as if vast swaths of the Middle East operate under the collective delusion that the various parties, state or non-state, can kill their way out of insecurity and injustice. Then along comes Trump with his loose talk about allied obligations to NATO, provoking outrage across Western capitals. He leaves us feeling as if Biden, elderly or not, is one of the few adults in the room, and U.S. power remains the ultimate backstop for the maintenance of democratic ideals against wa...

More Anti-Russian Hysteria From the New York Times

BY RICHARD E. RUBENSTEIN Photograph Source: A.Savin – Free Art License A little while back, I challenged a group of graduate students to find one article in the New York Times written in the last five years that had anything favorable to say about Russia. Their extensive research turned up one article published in 2021 that described the beneficial effects of global warming on cold countries. The piece was entitled, “How Russia Cashes In On Climate Change.” Other than that, the newspaper’s sizeable cadre of Russia specialists reported virtually nothing about Europe’s most populous nation other than stories picturing Vladimir Putin and the Russian Federation as scheming plotters, corrupt and incompetent rulers, meddlers in other nations’ elections, brutal oppressor...

OBITUARY – Gonzalo Lira

Reproduced from the Helsinki Times of 13 January 2024, with thanks Gonzalo Lira, a Chilean-American war commentator known for his critical views on the Zelensky regime and Russia-Ukraine conflict, passed away on January 11, 2024, in a hospital in Kharkiv, Ukraine. Lira’s death followed an eight-month imprisonment on charges of ”justifying Russia’s military actions in Ukraine”, sparking international controversy and raising questions about freedom of speech and human rights during wartime. Gonzalo Lira gained notoriety in 2022 as a vocal critic of what he perceived as increasing authoritarianism in Ukraine. Lira saw the conflict as a proxy war waged by US against Russia and criticised the loss of life for a futile and unwinnable war. His arrest in May 2023, under...

Avdeyevka has fallen!

Russian forces are now in full control over the city of Avdeyevka whilst thousands of Ukrainian troops remain there trapped in isolated pockets. Their command structure has broken down and there is little effective communication between units. In an attempt to turn this around, the fascist Azov brigade was sent in to clear the mess but succeeded only in becoming part of the mess themselves. They were last heard of “firing at 360 degrees”, army-speak for being surrounded on all sides and hoping for the best. It is a mark of how bad the situation is for the Kiev junta that the mainstream media are not even trying to cover up the seriousness of this development. The capture of Avdeyevka is the biggest Russian advance since taking Bakhmut last May and opens the way to full control ...

Daily Mail doxes young people on their return from Russian festival

Why did Russia’s hosting of an international youth festival provoke such a hysterical reaction from British media? Proletarian writers Subscribe to our  channel President Vladimir Putin addressed assembled delegates in Sochi during the closing ceremony of the festival. He was one of many Russian leaders who spoke to the young audiences who had gathered from around the world. Nato’s power, the USA’s hegemony and what remains of the British empire are all in irreversible decline. A new world is coming into being and there is no room for imperialists in humanity’s future. This is the context in which the World Youth Festival 2024 took place in Sochi – and why it provoked such a hysterical response from Guy Adams of the fascist-loving Daily ...

Russia Links Terrorists to Ukraine! US Whines and No One Cares! the Lady Protests Too Much!

ANDREW ANGLIN  I doubted whether or not it would be possible, but Russia has managed to trace the funding to at least one of these terrorists – back to the Ukraine. The FSB is the world’s premiere intelligence and safety agency, which is why these attacks are not happening all the time. They didn’t even lock down Moscow after the attack. Instead, they did massive raids and deportations of Moslems, quietly, while the people remained free to go about in safety without the oppressive atmosphere of soldiers everywhere. RT: The suspects in last week’s Moscow terrorist attack were linked to Ukrainian nationalists, the Russian Investigative Committee stated on Thursday, citing preliminary findings. The perpetrators had received “significant sums of money” from Ukraine, the law e...

FROM MEMES TO DOXXING: UNMASKING NATO’S INFORMATION WARFARE STRATEGY

NATO’s shocking ‘Humour in online information warfare’ working paper reveals a sinister strategy, encouraging cyberbullying and doxxing as tools of war, unraveling the disturbing reality of meme-driven manipulation in online spaces. In November 2023, NATO’s “Centre of Excellence for Countering Hybrid Threats” published a disturbing ‘working paper,’ “Humour in online information warfare: Case study on Russia’s war on Ukraine.” It received no mainstream attention. Yet, the contents offer unprecedented insight into the military alliance’s insidious weaponization of social media to distort public perceptions and manufacture consent for war. They also raise grave questions about online “trolling” of dissident voices over the past decade and beyond. The working paper ostensi...
