    Right, but then I could move to a republican state. Besides, wed really be the 51-61 state. Pretty sure Alberta and Saskatchewan would be republican.

    CNN and Bloomberg leave Russia; Twitter and Facebook are blocked - this could be the best thing that has ever happened for the country!
    I hope a military operation that TPTB don't approve of gets initiated by the USA so we can be rescued from FakeNews, and shielded from the partisanship of the social media giants! Would that be collateral damage or the spoils of war?

    Haven't seen this here yet, but this 90's Time Magazine cover heralding our Serbian bombing as the path to peace has been making the rounds in Russia:
    Обложка журнала Time: "Дверь к миру" с помощью бомб открыл не кто иной, как Запад

    And, a few days ago, the hilarious, dark-humor-loving Russkies projected this magazine cover image right onto the outer walls of our embassy in Moscow:
    На здании посольства США в Москве появилась проекция обложки американского журнала <<Тайм>>

    That's pretty damn funny, and not in that Kamala-Harris'-kindergartner-description-of-this-conflict kinda way. Are they REALLY sending her back out to Europe to talk about this??

    hello,

    Short answer: it depends on whether Baja California was a recognised autonomous republic within Mexico; and maybe, if they held a referendum to become part of the USA, again as an autonomous republic. Reference is to the 1991, 1994 and 2014 Crimea referendums.

    Longer answer, in two parts, none of them decisive (because this stuff, as I said, it's not black and white).

    Crimea recognised itself as an autonomous republic within the state of Ukraine. Now, the question is, what happened in 2014? If Maidan was a revolution, then by definition what emerged from it was a different state entity, different from the old one. As such, any allegiance Crimea gave to the old state could be considered void, and Crimea had the right to decide whether to give allegiance to the new state entity, or not. If Maidan was instead simply a coup, Crimea's case would be weaker; on the other hand, anyone who supported the coup (i.e. the whole whole West), instead of working for reinstating the legitimate government, would find themsleves in a very precarious moral position.

    Crimea was not annexed; it used its power as autonomous Republic to ask, via a referendum, to become part of Russia, again as an autonomous Republic. I have no idea how legal this is; it seems to me that it must be at least as legal as what happened in Kosovo (actually, more; Kosovo never held a referendum, although its result would have been a foregone conclusion). So, my answer to your question would be that if you consider what happened in Kosovo legal/ok/fair, then you would have to give Crimea a pass. Note: the similarity between Kosovo and Crimea is not the annexation part, but the carving out; once detached, each is free to pursue its own destiny. Crimea decided to return to Russia, Kosovo might well decide to ask for annexation to Albania at some point in the future)

    Bottom line; what happened in Crimea could be considered a violent, possibly illegal reaction to a violent, and certainly illegal action. I don't think you can judge one but not the other, I don't think you can consider the incident apart from the precedent. I think it's certainly possible to argue that a coup/revolution changes the nature of a State, and in particular makes void all the agreements and conventions that existed between the various parts and bodies of the State before the revolution/coup took place. Hence, it would be logical for some of those agreements/conventions to be renegotiated, or reneged.

    All of the above imho opinion of course.

    Forgive me, but what's the implication? After 10 days of watching MSM, I'm more retarded than normal (yes, that's possible). I think I've stressed I'm not squeamish around National Socialism or racialised politics.

    https://i.imgur.com/RuSBHTr.jpg

    As I'm sure you already know, before Azov were offered a place in the Ukrainian military proper and "rehabilitated" (asked to clean up their optics for the sake of PR), they were open about this kind of thing. Their insignia featured an ancient Germanic Wolfsangel (same as SS Division Das Reich), with a yellow background and a white sonnenrad/sunwheel. Basically, it's like they contacted an autistic edgelord from 4chan to do their branding.

    A bit of an aside, but we live in extremely weird, dangerous times. Young men with perfectly normal and healthy nationalistic tendencies, who feel alienated and lied to, are psychologically wounded and vulnerable. They are absolutely the target of "Fed" operations to draw them down political dead-ends, and into edgy, LARPy but ultimately risky movements and finally into jail, snuffing out all that real, potential political energy. Accompanied by plenty of lascivious media coverage documenting all the Hitlery imagery and strengthening the idea in the public's mind that people with these kinds of ideas are the bad guys in the story. What the system cannot cope with, on the other hand, is a collective of men and women who are outwardly normal looking and sounding, attractive, successful and with no obvious autistic, weirdo tendencies. The kind of people you'd let baby-sit your kids, yet have internalised the ideas of someone like Jonathan Bowden. That's what they're actually afraid of growing legs and gaining support.

    Basically, if an associate starting sieg heiling, and posing with swastikas, I don't want to be anywhere near the cunt and I'm probably friendlier to NS ideas than him in more than a few ways. The AfD in Germany have had more mainstream success (i.e getting offline/normal people to resonate with their ideas through the fake democratic process) than anyone else in Europe or America because they have totally purged the organisation of anti-Semitism and the imagery associated with all that football ultra/neo-Nazism of yesteryear. Obviously, the legal situation in German has produced this, and it's a good thing for the German nationalism. It is political poison and turns normal people off. Normal people who are state-educated, and have consumed news media product their entire lives, are incapable and uninterested in nuance or difficult truths, but they are unhappy and they're looking for a voice.

    So, back to the topic, you should definitely perk up and pay attention when a Jewish banking billionaire oligarch with 3 passports to his name finances arms, violent groups characterised by neo-Nazi politics and anti-Semitism, in Ukraine (a country with a relatively big population of Jews) and knowing what we know, as shared by Gilead, about the history of Ukrainians themselves treating Jews worse than the Germans in the 1940's. This is what makes the part about his Jewish Ukrainian identity worthy of taking notice of in the first instance, and it goes further. He has donated millions to Chabad in New York, and flits between Israel and Switzerland. He's clearly not just some random billionaire who happens to be vaguely secular Jewish-ish. Nothing about him is average, and he carefully (and expensively) managed the circumstances which placed Western puppet Zelenskiy, a TV comedian with no political experience, on the throne.

    Businessmen accused of Ukraine money laundering gave millions to NY charities

    There are lots of very, messy connections which lead somewhere - and no, I'm not suggesting this would then naturally lead to some kind of broader "Jewish Question" anti-Semitic trope conclusion either and I'm not painting the millions of Jewish people the world over with the same brush.

    However, the fact that many of the high-level players involved are Jewish almost precludes certain questions being asked, and any deeper investigations of connections to New York, Wall Street finance, the City of London, all the way to people like Anthony Blinken and Victoria Nuland and are then off the table. Hunter Biden even manages to disappear amongst the crowd.

    How Hunter Biden’s Interests ‘Overlapped’ With Banned Ukrainian Oligarch

    Basically, once the connections themselves become too Jewish sounding, they become off limits for further discussion. So, if I was a Machiavellian power broker and wanted to orchestrate a series of terrible, horrible events which would be catastrophic for all opposing "sides" of the conflict, and would inevitably result in a consolidation of power, then I would make sure to involve as many wealthy, egomaniacal Jewish oligarch fuckheads, Israel-linked companies and dual-citizen political whores as possible. Anyone who investigated what I was up to and managed to delve too deep could then be brushed away with the political kryptonite accusation of anti-Semitism, or just called a plain-old Nazi, and with groups like the ADL and or even AIPAC able to exert so much political sway in our disgusting system, that shit actually works a charm. Verboten. You will be ostracized if you do it.

    The true beauty of this is you can't engage someone in a brief conversation, without a massive preamble, about these connections, and drop some truth, without coming across as an anti-Semitic nutcase - at least to the average, MSM-consuming normie person whose reality is dictated and shaped by sound-bytes and headlines. Someone reading that may well argue "That's because what your saying is anti-Semitic" (probably wearing transparent-frame spectacles & with intense vocal fry) but I would disagree.

    Kolomoisky could have found a million dumb-fuck, desperate, criminal, Ukrainian gopnik thugs willing to take up arms for money, and cleanse Russians in the east, but he chose overt neo-Nazis dripping with Nazi imagery. Creating a narrative of the West, vs Russia, with accusations of Nazism thrown into the mix creates the most chaotic political maelstrom with the highest possible chance of escalation on both sides. It's almost like there's an international class who, in the end, stand to gain from this mess whatever the outcome and the good people of Ukraine are too blinded by the narrative to see they're being used.

    Basically, I'm suggested that what Professor Antony C. Sutton says (video below - buy his book) explains today's situation perfectly. Watch this one, and don't think about 1917 but think about today, and think about the catastrophic lengths these internationalists are willing to go to. The bankers don't want strong independent nations just like back in 1917 when they fomented the revolution in Russia. The same applies today.

    This is what David Rockefeller said in his memoirs:
    "We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years.....It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we has been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to a march towards a WORLD GOVERNMENT(my emphasis). The supranational sovereignty of an INTELLECTUAL ELITE (my emphasis) and WORLD BANKERS (my emphasis) is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in the past centuries."

    As always it is interesting what our the media decides isn't important for us to report.

    All around the world, intense military actions are taking place. Last week alone, Russia launched a huge military invasion of Ukraine; Saudi Arabia carried out dozens of strikes on Yemen; Israel launched a wave of deadly missile attacks against Syria; and the United States restarted its bombing campaign in Somalia.

    Canada is quietly passing a bill to ban alternative news sources among other things while everyone is distracted by Ukraine.
    stop, you have to focus on the war, it's the only thing right now. If you pay attention to the magician's other hand it'll ruin the trick.
    The Canadian Government wants to censor the internet like China does, and are secretly trying to pass Bill-C11 to do that.

    I like the part where the propaganda reader guy disagrees with Col. McGregor that he is a puppet and then call the Col. Tough guy. What a D-bag the propaganda reader is.


    Col. Doug Macgregor calls Zelensky “a puppet” 👀

    In response to a FOIA request filed by TheBlaze, HHS revealed that it purchased advertising from major news networks including ABC, CBS, and NBC, as well as cable TV news stations Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC, legacy media publications including the New York Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the Washington Post, digital media companies like BuzzFeed News and Newsmax, and hundreds of local newspapers and TV stations. These outlets were collectively responsible for publishing countless articles and video segments regarding the vaccine that were nearly uniformly positive about the vaccine in terms of both its efficacy and safety.
    Of course.
