The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

20 years ago many of us would laugh at the idea of a separate American foreign policy and surveillance state being run by the apparatchiks in the intelligence establishment. "Of course that isn't happening! And of course the Patriot Act is necessary! Our government wouldn't abuse its power!"

That's just conspiracy theorist blather...right?

I cringe at my naivete.

Is a Larger Conflict Brewing in Eastern Europe?

Ukraine has long been rumored to be a country containing multiple CIA black sites. I have an independent source telling me the same. This source is also telling me that the same type of black sites are active and operating in Poland. This claim caused me to take a deeper look at Poland and what the defense temperament there was. What I found was disturbing and leads me to believe that my source is accurate in their claim.

Poland has substantial military goals and appears to be planning to use US resources to achieve those goals.


While I do not subscribe to the theory that Poland will become expansionist, the existence of CIA black sites in Poland is troubling because the record of our intelligence services is one of almost perfect failure over the last 75 years.

Are they trying to export American control (and graft) from Ukraine to Poland? Are they trying to integrate themselves into the Polish political establishment and create a second front in their insane war against Russia?

Would anyone be surprised if those suppositions turned out to be accurate?

This goes hand in hand with the shadow government doing everything in its power to handcuff Israel in its justified war against Islam, in the form of Hamas, Hezbollah, and Iran. Oh...some of those weapons Hamas uses against Israel? They come from Afghanistan; they are American weapons left in our scramble to leave. Or left purposefully? At this point, that insane conspiracy theory wouldn't surprise me at all!

It seems we have so many insane conspiracy theories nowadays because so many thing do not make sense at face value. There was no legitimate reason leave behind billions in weapons in Afghanistan. We still don't have a valid reason for why we must spend billions and billions for the war in Ukraine - what makes that fight so special (particularly when Z and Putin were considering a peace agreement, then Biden and Boris Johnson spiked it). The list could go on and on.

When things don't make sense, and no understandable motivation/reason is given, then we are left to fill in the blanks with speculation. I fall into that trap, for sure, but that doesn't remove the fact that no good reason has been provided for so many things.

43 Is a Larger Conflict Brewing in Eastern Europe?

There is a high probability that Ukraine loses the war this summer - they are out of draftable men, and face severe internal political constraints in trying to draft the sons of influential families that thus far have been exempt.

Faced with this, the globalists have two choices:

1) Try to negotiate a Korean-style armistice with Russia, effectively ceding the predominately Russian-speaking parts of Ukraine to Russia, or:

2) Try to escalate things to a NATO-Russia conflict, in an effort to stave off defeat.

Which do you think our genius ruling class will choose?

Yes - and they count on us assuming idiocy again and again, especially if you take each incident individually.

It's like with the numerous food processing places catching fire/exploding/being destroyed. Yes, that small airplane crashing into a General Mills processing plant was probably just an accident - but then when taken in context of the numerous, sustained destruction of food related processing places, 1000's of TX livestock mysteriously dying, and so on, there appears to be the possibility of something more sinister.

Add to it the MSM disinterest in so many stories. Like, once a shooter is identified as trans, it's all move along, nothing to see, we shouldn't focus on the identity, just the type of gun.

88 This goes hand in hand with the shadow government doing everything in its power to handcuff Israel in its justified war against Islam

I've been wondering about this - of course, the latest Israeli War Crime is bombing a building that may have been part of the Iranian consulate in Damascus, which would normally be subject to diplomatic protections.

Iran doesn't recognize the State of Israel, of course, and regularly announces that Israel would soon be destroyed.

Is Israel really obligated to respect diplomatic facilities in third countries belonging to countries that don't acknowledge that Israel exists?

One of the reasons I haven't cared about Ukraine from the outset is that the various groups/nations/nationalities in that region have been fighting over borders since before the USA existed.

There is a ground up and top down movement to place bought and paid stooges and/or true believers (or both) in every possible position of power, including or especially the media, which creates and distorts as much of reality as possible.

There is a pipeline to all forms of broadcast whose #1 goal above all else is transmitting "the message", whatever that is on a given day, and burying anything contrary. The same pipeline guides most politicians and hampers others.

There is above all a sinister, demonic choreography guiding these mostly godless souls to perform this daily ritual dance, to promote the underworld and enhance Satan's power on earth. The drives used to do this are as varied as the colors in the spectrum. From greed to fear to a desire to be "good" and all in between.

Google is awful for this. Their apps in G-Suite (Mail, Calendar, Chat, etc.) are visually wasteful and clunky. They consume vastly more screen real estate than they need to, and the windows containing them need to be bigger to use the apps properly. Compared to actual software, it's garbage. Microsoft, for all its flaws, makes much more efficient (screen and operational efficiency) software.

Pixels are cheap, but they aren't free. The salesmen who were able to convince major companies that G-Suite is "enterprise software" deserve some sort of sales award that they can use to attain higher status in hell.

In hindsight it's fairly clear that the IC has been really running things since at least HW Bush. Him, Clinton, W, Obama, Trump, Biden, it's all not them in control.

164 World Central Kitchen charity halts Gaza operations after Israeli strike kills 7 workers. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledged that the country's forces had carried out the "unintended strike" on "innocent people in the Gaza Strip." He says officials are looking into the strike and would "do everything for this not to happen again."

Unintended". Right. In light of everything up to now, it seems more likely par for the course.

Oh please. 🙄 It's not as though Israel had violated a cease-fire in a surprise attack. It's an active war zone. People will die. This should come as no surprise to anyone.

WCK tells the IDF exactly where its people are, and they go ahead and kill them anyway. People expect better from a force that is armed by the USA.

It's less of a combat zone and more of a massacre. I didn’t see any Palestinian soldiers firing back on the IDF during that food drop massacre video, did you? DID ANYONE SEE PALESTINIAN SOLDIERS FIRING BACK??? It’s NOT a fucking “combat zone”.

The genocidal maniac will claim the others were justified deaths because one Palestinian was allegedly hamas.

Trump is trying to solve 800 problems. Covid was an op and put him in a politically impossible position which, after being blamed solely for what his enemies actually did, he has navigated well and continued to be as popular as ever. He has a chance to win an election and free the political prisoners on Day 1, while being prosecuted and slandered constantly.

You want him to start scoring own goals for your own pet issue but unfortunately he has an election to win and thankfully he's not a fucking idiot.

The USSR really was evil. They wanted to spread their brand of "communism" worldwide and put everyone under the yoke of the Kremlin.

But the USSR fell. Then, like every organization ever, people found themselves in a career based on fighting an issue which no longer existed. Rather than patting themselves on the back, they continued the "good fight". They continued to work against "the enemies of democracy" and continually expanded the definition of that club.

The US hasn't been pure since... ever... but is used to be more good than evil. I would argue that this is no longer the case.

227 I realized during the Shrub's tenure in office that the State Dept. had an entirely different agenda than the WH. Somehow, things never got done and what was accomplished had nothing in common with the avowed purpose.

My mistake was in not realizing the State Dept. wasn't alone, that every other government department was acting in concert with State.

Elections are not a quick fix. The incoming president may be able to move new people into certain slots, but there are too many layers below those slots whose personnel will never change unless the entire department is blown up.

You want him to start scoring own goals for your own pet issue but unfortunately he has an election to win and thankfully he's not a fucking idiot.

Yep, covid is what killed Trump's reelection chances. First of all the liberals/democrats bitched that he was over reacting to covid. Remember nancy pelosi et. al. going to china Town and celebrating there claiming that covid was not a problem while calling Trump a racist for stopping air travel from China. And in a New York minute she was on every TV station screaming that Trump wasn't doing enough to stop the spread of the deadly covid and she was demanding he shut the country down.

233 I realized during the Shrub's tenure in office that the State Dept. had an entirely different agenda than the WH. Somehow, things never got done and what was accomplished had nothing in common with the avowed purpose.

My mistake was in not realizing the State Dept. wasn't alone, that every other government department was acting in concert with State.


I think that's most of us. It was a common topic during W that State was basically rogue, but nobody understood that it wasn't just them.

There would not have been a vaccine if Fauci hadn't lied to Trump.

The part that Fauci doesn't admit is every trial ended in failure in animal studies. Actually worse then failure, enhanced disease.

They came and picked it up on the flat bed.

386 Couple of thoughts - a family member suggested our public posturing on Israel is being done merely by FJB to save the muslim vote in Mich and Minn and that behind the scenes little has changed.
Regarding Poland. Poland has been run over by Germany and Russia most of their existence. They see Germany as weak, but energy vulnerable. They see Russia as faltering but looking squarely at them if they were to ever overcome Ukraine.

They are making decisions based upon improving their military situation wherever they can. Would they accept CIA blacksite locations with the right inducements? Yes. We have boots on the ground in Poland right? They traded old soviet hardware - sent to Ukraine - for new US shiny upgrades.

They are positioning for the new global reality. They offered citizenship to Ukraine refugees. They outlawed abortion, not on religious grounds, but on demographic national security ones.

405 I remember having an online conversation, around the start of Russia's 2022 invasion in Urkaine, in which I wrote "why wouldn't Russia attack Poland next? Russia also has a border with Poland, Poland used to be part of the Russian empire, and US guarantees are worth nothing, anyway". And the response was "of course Russia won't attack Poland, Russia only attacks legitimate targets, such as hostile neighboring countries".
Now I see people writing "of course Poland is a legitimate target for Russia and the US should not intervene".

You neglected that not so small fact that Poland is part of NATO and an attack by Russia would trigger a full scale NATO response.

Putin never was after Poland because this was about Putin putting down a redline over Ukraine acceptance into NATO and we crossed it. Those who kept saying that if we don't support Ukraine Putin will roll across Europe never had a clue what precipitated the war.

Putin was going to take what he thought he could - for security purposes. It is why he has invaded all over the place, and why he propped up Ukraine leadership before we got a different leadership we propped up.

He wanted to dictate security terms for all of eastern Europe - just like the Soviets did. Conflict was inevitable. He's trying to take Moldova as we speak.

Some years ago, I would have been certain that if China attacked Taiwan the US would jump to its defence. Now this is no longer certain.

Nonsense. Moldova is trying to take Transnistria, an ally manned by 1200 Russian troops. NATO has bribed/pressured the current leader, apparently against the wishes of the legislature to fling herself at the West. Most sensible people in both areas want to stay out of this fracas.

421 Faced with this, the globalists have two choices:

Russia looks to be done asking the West for anything going forward. Whatever stop line they pick, and whatever arrangement for governing the remainder is set up won't involve the West.

423 If Poland and Russia share a border (which they will if Russia conquers Ukraine) there WILL be "border incidents". The Poles hate Russia. Russian subjugation of Poland as part of the USSR eastern bloc was brutal, and they haven't forgotten.

Problem is they used to have the upgraded Soviet stuff, and the tanks they ordered from South Korea haven't been built yet. Similar for the air force...there are promises for deliveries of US planes, but it isn't like we can build them quickly to reconstitute their AF. And like the Ukrainians, Polish pilots would need considerable retraining.

NATO has been disarming itself in the last few years quicker than Russia has been able to disarm Ukraine.

My guess is that bits of Far West Ukraine will be cut loose to either be absorbed by the West or be a buffer. This is the zone where the Nazi Bandera element is strongest, along with ethnic groups from Poland, Hungary and possibly Romania. This bit is pretty poor and won't support an army of any size on its own. Client states closely allied with Russia can avoid a real NATO/Russia border.

The West has shown that it can't be trusted to rule over Russians, the last years have shown that clearly.

Putin has shown the document with preliminary signatures. Basically the deal was that the Donbas states would be self ruling inside Ukraine and talks would continue on the points of disarmament and deNazification. Ukraine would add to its constitution that it would never join NATO.

It was just a slightly stronger deal than the Minsk I and Minsk II agreements that Ukraine signed in order to save its surrounded army in 2014. The deals that Germany and France assured it would enforce and has publicly stated they never intended to and instead would build Ukraine up for war.
