Sorry Russophobes and Neocons, the World Cup in Russia is Off to a Flyer


The World Cup in Russia is off to a flyer, serving up a feast of football amid the special and unique atmosphere generated by this quadrennial event. Fans from every corner of the globe having been packing the stadiums, some of them custom-built, reminding us that despite our differences we are one human family.

However not everyone is happy. For Russophobes and neocons the success of the World Cup in Russia is something to mourn rather than celebrate, interfering as it does with their relentless demonisation of a country, in Russia, which refuses to know its place as a subaltern power, home to retrograde cultural values, relative to the West.

In fact given the intensity of anti-Russia invective that has played out in the Western mainstream media these past few years, many watching the World Cup will have been genuinely surprised to know that, yes, the sun actually shines in Russia too; and that, yes, its people are not oppressed and living in gulags.

Consider for a moment the sentiments of Guardian journalist Shaun Walker — in Volgograd along with thousands of his English compatriots in advance of England's opening match Group G match against Tunisia:

The England fans I've met in Volgograd so far are absolutely loving it. "It's the opposite of what we expected, everyone has been amazingly welcoming. Last night was brilliant — couldn't ask for a better start to a world cup trip".

"The opposite of what we expected," Mr Walker tweets, which isn't a surprise considering the wall to wall anti-Russia propaganda the Guardian spews out on a near daily basis. There was no more craven an example of this than an article by the newspaper's Diplomatic editor, Patrick Wintour, just prior to the tournament, in which he conveyed without challenge the 'warning' by 'various MPs' that England fans travelling to the tournament were putting themselves at serious risk of abuse and attack.

The Guardian also carried an opinion piece in the run up to the tournament, the title of which — 'Robbie Williams selling soul to dictator Putin in World Cup gig' — only served to confirm why the liberal newspaper's decline has been so rapid. Anyway, having watched Robbie Williams' performance at the opening ceremony, there are grounds for arguing that it was Putin who sold his soul to bad music.

So yes for smug liberals, unreconstructed neocons (such as the cranks over at the Henry Jackson Society) and Russophobes of every stripe, their personal idea of hell has arrived in the shape of a successful, joyous and celebratory World Cup in Russia, involving beautiful football on the pitch and a coming together of different cultures and nationalities off it in a spirit of togetherness and amity. Just imagine their pain; years spent churning out anti-Russia articles, opinion pieces, speeches and books, only to see it all debunked over the course of just a few days.

Saudi Arabia Manipulates a Video to Blame Iran for the 9/11 Attacks Which is Then Reported as News by the U.S. Department of State and American Media


  1. An Iranian former government official appears in a TV interview and explains then refutes the claims of an American court ruling that Iran is responsible for 9/11.
  2. Al Arabiya TV, the state-funded mouthpiece of the Saudi Arabian dictatorship, edits the video of the interview to make it seem as if the official is admitting responsibility for 9/11 – Link
  3. One of many corrections: “Larijani was brought on the show to discuss a court ruling which blames Iran for 9/11. He’s explaining what the commission report said. This video was spliced to fit a Saudi-owned news company’s agenda. Conveniently left out is him saying, ‘Al Qaeda is Iran’s number one enemy.'”- Link
  4. The U.S. Department of State’s Arabic-language twitter account, which has now been thoroughly transformed into an anti-Iranian account that regularly tweets Al Arabiya and Sky News Arabia (owned by the UAE dictatorship), shares Al Arabiya’s manipulated video – Link This twitter account is part of the U.S. government’s Global Engagement Center, “charged with leading the U.S. government’s efforts to counter propaganda and disinformation from international terrorist organizations and foreign countries.”
  5. American media reports Al Arabiya’s video as fact: Adam Kredo of The Free Beacon

Robert Fisk: Is N. Korea Summit a 'Sideshow' as Israelis & U S Plan to Attack Iran?


Could Trump/Kim Jong-Un summit be a sideshow to divert attention from Israeli/U.S. plans to attack Iran?



Military strikes on Iran, if they occur, will be limited, and will only draw increasing Russian support for the country. There is little the US or Israel can do to seriously degrade Iran, a nation that does not have a nuclear weapons program.

Fisk also talks about the war in Syria, and the fact there are few Iranian forces in the country, and that Turkey is still a staging ground for ISIS.

However, Fisk's characterisation of Trump as crazy is incorrect. The real game for Trump is to bring back manufacturing from China, Mexico and Canada through a trade war. He is for de-globalisation. The global conflict zones are side shows that Trump may want to unwind (over the long term, except that he is surrounded by neocon warmongers that would kill him if he acted too overtly).

Antarctica and Australia Climate Shift: New Details Emerging (Adapt 2030)


Australian media in damage control to explain Melbourne coldest start in 36 years to winter, record snow and frosts to withing 1500 miles south of the equator toward Cains. Bobby the moderator at OZ Politic has a full thread of 350 pages outside MSM control which shows massive ice gains in sea ice around Antarctica, all the while the MSM screams that we have to act now before the worlds coast lines are washed away by a melting Antarctica. Power grids were stretched to the limits in Australia during the Superfreeze event, but downplaying is the new narrative, and if it doesn't fit, just make a new set of rules. Perhaps we need to look to the Sabians of Harran to understand the cycles.

Taliban Members Take Selfies, Hug Afghan Soldiers During Eid Ceasefire


Dozens of Taliban members entered the Afghan capital on Saturday. They were unarmed and were met with greetings and hugs by civilians and soldiers in a ceasefire attempt for the Eid holiday.
   
The militants, some wearing traditional headgear, went through the streets of Kabul carrying their flags and urging locals to come forward and take selfies with them.

Photos and videos on social media showed cheerful Talban exchanging hugs with Afghan soldiers and taking selfies with them across several provinces as they approached the capital.

“They are unarmed as they handed over their weapons at the entrances,” Kabul police spokesman Hashmat Stanekzai told Reuters, adding that the weapons would be returned when the fighters leave the city.

The militants even met Afghan Interior Minister Wais Ahmad Barmak in the capital, TOLO news reported.

The group earlier announced they would suspend hostilities with the government forces for three days to mark the Muslim holiday of Eid. This is the first time the Taliban has ever extended an offer of this kind to the Afghan government. The truce was cut short by an explosion at a meeting of Taliban and Afghan security forces in the eastern province of Nangarhar  that killed at least ten people.

The point here is that a negotiated settlement, and some sort of power sharing agreement might be possible - thus ending the conflict, at least long enough for Western forces to withdraw.

Trump at G7: "All Terrorists Live in Paris", Juncker a "Brutal Killer" - Reports


Participants of the G7 meeting reportedly had a hard time restraining themselves when the US President shared his insights on migration and terrorism with the French President, threatened to send the Japanese Prime Minister 25 million Mexicans and slammed the European Commission President during talks in Canada.

A senior EU official summed up his behind-the-scenes experience at the meeting of the leaders of the world’s most powerful developed economies in Canada on June 8-9 by telling the Wall Street Journal:

“A sense of irritation with Mr. Trump could be felt, but everyone tried to be rational and calm."

According to the report, the US President got into debates about trade issues and immigration, and went as far as to reproach Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Trump is right with what he is saying on a fundamental level.

Is Political Decentralization the Only Hope for Western Civilization?


Political decentralization is a far greater deterrent to government largesse than constitutions, elections, or finding the “right person” to “fix things.”  The events of the last few weeks in the realm of US foreign policy once again demonstrate that trusting candidates to fulfill campaign promises is naive, to say the least.

To get to this goal, all and every secession movement, even of a Leftist bent, should be supported, whether they are nations that want to “exit” from larger political units, such as Great Britain from the EU, or within nation states themselves such as California in the US.  All should be encouraged.

Of course, the case for decentralization has to be made on ideological grounds.  The Left, most likely, will not be a natural ally for secession, nor are conservatives, most of whom are under the spell of “nationalism” and “restoring the Republic.”  Yet, the Right offers the best opportunity to build a secession movement and needs to be convinced that the preservation of the nation state will only lead to the complete triumph of liberalism.

Secession would also necessitate the breakup of the nation-state’s monopoly of money and banking.  Numerous political divisions would be more likely to adopt a single monetary unit – gold – which would guarantee financial stability rather than the debt ridden paper-money system now in place.

Next to the outbreak of World War III, immigration is the greatest threat to what remains of Western Civilization.  Smaller political units would be far better to control their borders than reliance on a central authority which can be easily manipulated from outside agents.

The solution to the myriad of social and economic problems that confront Western societies will not come about from a “reform” of the nation state, but through its dissolution.  Only through a world made up of hundreds, if not thousands, of Lichtensteins, Hong Kongs, Monacos, confederacies, free cities, etc., will these crises be hoped to be resolved.

Australia Land of Fun & Sun Freezes, Frost 1500 Miles South of the Equator (Adapt 2030)


What could be described as a Superfreeze event engulfed Australia over the weekend, send all but one capital in Darwin below 10C and record snow and cold to other parts with 3/4 of the continent in freeze and frost conditions. Amazingly frost extended to within 1500 miles of the equator. No that is not a misprint, frost just 1500 miles from the equator during this event. Power draw was at all time high and some manufacturers were charged 100x the normal rate and paying up to $14,000 per megawatt. This shows that 100% green energy for a continent is not achievable or sustainable.

The Long Tail of Star Wars Fandom - How Disney is Killing the Value of the Franchise


The distribution of money spent by Star Wars fans is not equal, and if you ignore the long tail - those fans who spend large amounts of money, you may be harming the value of your franchise, even if you sell more movie tickets.



The rub is that poorly received movies will impact on overall sales, including the hardcore fans - those few people that may spend up to $1000 on merchandise per year will dial back their purchases. You will end up with collectors only targeting original movie products, or items from when George Lucas was in charge, and then ignoring all the newer products. Thus the overall value of the franchise is diminished.

The Murder of Journalist Michael Hastings


News reports said he was traveling at 100 miles per hour and his car exploded when he hit a tree.
Wrong and wrong.

Video analysis by a physics professor says he was traveling less than 40 mph and his car exploded before he hit a tree and the engine and drive train were found over 100 feet away – behind where the car hit the tree, a physical impossibility from a collision. Multiple explosions were reported.

Hastings body was cremated after the official autopsy – against the wishes of the family.

Hours before he died, Hastings told friends he was under investigation by the FBI for a story he was doing about Obama’s then terrorism czar, who later became the head of the CIA: John Brennan, architect of the black ops assassination program.

The FBI denied this. The FBI was found to be lying. (Surprise, surprise.)

The story didn’t pass the “smell test” with the local TV news, but their detailed and thoroughly researched concerns was 100% ignored by national news reports.
