Woke Lies & Wars

Over the years, this humble blog has railed against the flood of lies discharged by our woke masters in government, and in the media, legacy and new. It has become something of an obsession with your humble blogger; at the risk of becoming a one-note Johnny bore, I shall continue to rail. 

Sorry, but, hey, it's free of charge.

Our masters tell us so many lies that it proves difficult to pick one, or two, or three, or . . . whatever, to discuss. I will give it a try.

As you can see from my writings over the years on Putin and Russia, I have not become a Putin Puppet. In my view, however, Putin's Moscow ranks as a second- or even third-tier threat to the US and the West; it certainly comes well behind the number two threat Beijing, and WELL BEHIND, far, far behind, the number one threat to our civilization, the Wokesters within our societies busily destroying our institutions and the underpinnings of our national identity and culture.  

None of us, outside of the top-most circles of Ukraine and Russia, has any good idea of events in the Ukraine-Russia war. What we, John Q. Public, know know proves very basic, VERY basic, indeed. 

We know Russia has invaded Ukraine. We think we know that the invasion did not seem well-planned or executed. We know that this invasion, as true with any other of which I can think, has caused suffering and death to the people invaded, and, yes, by the way, I include in my list of invasions that transpiring along our own southern border. In the Ukraine case, we simply don't know how much suffering and death; we must take the media's "massacre" accounts with a fistful of salt. Look. Face it. It's Russia; it's Ukraine; it's Eastern Europe. History shows that warfare there, though, of course, not there only, does not adhere to the Marquess of Queensberry Rules, much less to the Geneva Convention. I have no trouble believing, knowing (?), that innocent civilians or surrendering soldiers can and do face harsh treatment and even death at the hands of that day's victors--and that the next day's victors will reciprocate. I have no problem knowing that Russians and Ukrainians can act in a brutal fashion. Read about the two world wars, the Russian civil war, the Soviet wars with Poland and Finland, the fate of Napoleon's army in Russia, etc., and you can easily imagine brutality on the fields of battle and in the cities of that region. The Katyn Forrest massacre comes readily to mind.

On Ukraine, my big problem, and I assume (Right? Wrong?) that of many others, arises from the lack of objective reporting; the reports, for example, on Russian atrocities in Ukraine seem much like those in British, French, and American newspapers of German atrocities in Belgium during WWI. Just a little too convenient. The narrative from Ukraine appears calculated, edited, censored, and massaged to cause maximum outrage in the audience, and, of course, heighten US and international support for involvement in this war. This narrative looks like, well, a narrative, rarely a good thing.

I don't like this manipulation, especially given the record of those doing it. We, for example, have a "leadership," illegitimately occupying the White House, which has not come clean about the corrupt Biden family's ties to Ukraine and China. We have a media, old and new, yet to apologize for its lies re Trump-Putin collusion, quid-pro-quo, Hunter's laptop, Rittenhouse, January 6, the grifters of BLM, Kavenaugh, Covid-19, climate change, the 2020 elections, and on, and on, and on. I generally don't believe what comes from these liars who wish ill on Western Civilization, and work to destroy it.

The bumbling, incoherent nature of our "leaders'" on their march to war leads to even more concern. We see them call for the world to destroy Russia, not just to promote regime change, but to destroy completely Russia's economy, and its ability to function as a modern state. We have prominent individuals, right and left, calling for direct US/NATO military action against Russia, i.e., war. They seek a potentially nuclear war in Europe. Would that war remain there?

Given the heated rhetoric coming from the West about Russia, and the measures taken to kill Russia's economy, I had to laugh when German Minister of Economy Robert Habeck complained that Russia's demanding Germany and other gas customers pay in roubles, rather than dollars or euros, amounted to "blackmail." He seemed outraged Russia would defend its currency, and seek to impose pain on those seeking to impose pain on Russia. 

What did a wise man once say? Oh, yes, "The enemy gets a vote." Words to live by.

No matter what we think of the rightness of "our cause," the other side will respond. 

We, today, suffer and will suffer more consequences at home from this rush to "destroy" Russia. Given, for example, our insistence on outsourcing critical industries, including fertilizer production to Russia, it should come as no surprise that Russia has struck at fertilizer exports, thereby, raising the cost of food production in the US and the West, evoking the likelihood not just of higher prices but of food shortages. 

Did the "bumblers in charge" not see this coming? Do we really need Nostradamus?

On the topic of wars, the wokesters not only push war with Russia. They simultaneously push a variety of interrelated wars at home. We see a war on women. The wokesters cannot even define "woman" except that a man gets to decide if he's a woman (?). Women don't exist. Sorry about that.

We also see an ever-intensifying wokester war on children. I have written about this before. The progs/wokesters hate children and families. They want to turn children over to the state, at least, those children they don't insist on killing. They want to "sexualize" children from the earliest possible age to accept LGBTQRSVPCRAP as normal. They want teachers talking about sex, in graphic terms, to children in kindergarten. They want judges to go light on child porn and pedophilia. They now have one of those on the Supreme Court.

  10. What we do know is:
    1. The situation with respect to NATO's eastward expansion after the collapse of the Soviet Union (and the end of the reason for NATO's existence) has been developing since the 1990s.
    2. The war in the Ukraine has been going on since about 2014 -- without stimulating any great interest from the West.
    3. The Ukraine is an extremely corrupt country, with strong connections to the corrupt Biden Crime Family.
    4. The US has admitted that it has been promoting false stories, such as that Russia would attack with poison gas.

    So at this point there is certainly no reason to believe that our Political Class is the "Good Guys" -- nor to believe that the Ukrainian Political Class are "Good Guys" either. And we certainly have no reason to believe anything "Our Guys" tell us.

    Rational choice would be for the US to stay out of the situation. Instead, our "leaders" are choosing to become belligerents, supplying weapons & training & targeting information. When that does not work (remember, the mighty Ukrainian army could not win against rag-tag rebels in a period of 8 years), our Political Class will get more involved. The war could spread across oceans, and the war could go thermonuclear.

    We have to ask -- Is the primacy of Ukraine's kleptocrats worth a civilization-ending war? Our Political Class seems to be saying -- YES!

    1. "We have to ask --
      Is the primacy of Ukraine's kleptocrats
      worth a civilization-ending war?"

  11. One might even suspect that the Biden Crime Syndicate(BCS) is pushing this war to keep the Russkies from securing additional proof of the crooked dealings(money laundering, child porn, sex trafficking, etc) of said BCS through the corrupt rulers of Ukraine.
    Not that they don't probably already have enough proof to fill a boxcar, heh, heh.

    1. Is it possible that "Our Guys" have finally realized that they have screwed the pooch -- that their mismanagement of the economy must now end in tears?

      There is no easy way back from decades of running up an unrepayable National Debt; from creating obligations for Social Security which can never be honored; from offshoring so much productive industry; from creating an unsustainable continuing Trade Deficit.

      But our Political Class seeks to obscure their guilt for functionally destroying the nation. Consequently, they are seeking to expand the situation in the Ukraine to a global war -- which they will then blame for the consequences of their own prior economic mismanagement.

  14. A few weeks ago, Ukraine dismissed and declared traitor, who generals in their military. Had that been any other government, we'd know who they were, what they were accused of, and how successful they'd been at that.

    And who is "those" one might ask?

    Interestingly this humble site was the source of my first becoming aware of a troublesome episode from a few years ago prominently featuring one stand-out "expert" then in the employ of ISW to wit

    No, not the esteemed Senator John McCain rather, one Elizabeth O'Bagy. But McCain (and none other than John Kerry to boot!) cited her work in the WSJ!

    And for McCain's trouble he managed to get himself photographed standing alongside that known AQ operative featured above on that second link.

    But alas as is often been said, "Pride goeth before a fall"

  21. Funny thing.

    People saying "The Ukrainian claims about battlefield results are close to the truth" tend to make predictions about subsequent events that prove reasonably close to accurate.

    People saying "Everybody on all sides is feeding us bullcrap" make no sensible predictions at all.

    The only rule that matters in these sorts of things is Feynman's.

    "If it disagrees with experiment, it is wrong."

    I do not think what I think about Ukraine because the New York Times said it first. I came to my conclusions about what to think about Ukraine based on prior visits to the country, prior interactions with Ukrainians in the USA, and multiple independent sources of information active now - and then noticed the New York Times was saying essentially the same thing I was thinking. Well. They probably mention the sky being blue sometimes, too. That doesn't make it false. That they use true statements to advance their political ends does not make those statements false either.

    In closing, I have one thing to say, which is coincidentally what the average Ukrainian seems to want to say to Putin:

    Stop presuming I'm a credulous dumbass who can't think for myself, you pompous shithead.

    1. I strongly suspect you know a lot less than you think you do, especially given your resort to insults. Sure sign of a loser.

  22. Perhaps the upsurge in "hopeless and hapless" leaders is part of the conditioning for acceptance of a classical "strong leader".

    You know the counter-drill:

    Beware wishing for strong leadership. You might just get it! Good and hard and often.

    Also, NEVER forget that Murphy was an incurable optimist.

    1. "NEVER forget that Murphy was an
      incurable optimist." -Cuzn Brucie

      Maybe so Cuz, but turns out, his theory has had many
      tests as well as theoreticians over the centuries:

      “if anything can go wrong, it will.” The so-called law is often said to have been created by Captain Edward A. Murphy, an engineer at Muroc Army Airfield (known today as Edwards Air Force Base) in 1949. But Captain Murphy was not the originator of the principle or phrasing—those were in use long before 1949. Captain Murphy may have bequeathed his name to the law, but even that is in doubt.

      The principle stated by Murphy’s Law dates to ancient times. The Roman playwright Plautus (c.254–184 BCE) penned words to that effect in his play Mostellaria:

      insperata accidunt magis saepe quam quae speres

      (Things you don’t hope for happen more often than things you do hope for.)
      "The earliest published reference to Murphy’s Law being uttered by Stapp or one of his team is in Lloyd Mallan’s 1955 Men, Rockets and Space Rats:"...

      Perhaps, your strong leader suposition
      is on target Cuz? However, wise, moral
      as well as 'sharp' cognitive skills,
      and abilities+gilt+luck may also
      be requirements for positive
      humanitarin outcomes,
