 I have removed my post about the make over of Kay because people I care about misread it as a criticism of how my day went.  My disappointment about the makeover was not a criticism of the great effort that Tom and Peg went to to give me and Kay a happy birthday celebration.  So I removed the post.   Tom set up an appointment with a beauty school which was close to where Kay lives to get her made up. Because I needed a haircut I asked for them to give me one while working on Kay.  After that they took us to a fancy restaurant on the waterfront  for dinner.  CJ Shenanagins.  I used Shirleys BD gift to go to the tab.  Because Kay is so weak Tom moves her in a wheel chair. Peggy brought a tray of cupcakes for me to give to the people at my table.  As there were more than 3 I gave the extra to the  people next to us because it didn't see right to not do that.  They all thought it was great.  i thought it must have made an impression on Kay because when we got her home  she insisted in sharing my walker when we went in.  She had been in the wheel chair all day.  Because my computer crashed I have to have her made over again to compare her to how she was 30 or 40 years ago.  Which I will do if I have to take  a cab to do. A great 93rd BD  A lot of people are disappointed because I have no picture to show.  Everyone thought it was a great idea.

Pretty routine

 I  met Kay at the elevator when I got off.  She was apparently tired of looking at the 4 walls and took a walk around the hall. Oh so slow.  But at least she was walking.  I stood by while she took her pills.  Sometimes she really looks them over before deciding to take them.  She takes only two pills.  I want her to take them so that her throat doesn't get another ulcer.  that would be the worst thing that could happen to her.  She would not be able to tell us.  Then we went into her room and I stayed there until time to go.  Tomorrow we get her made up and then out to eat. She took my leaving well.

Late shuttle

 I was late getting there and much later getting back.  Kay was walking the hall and as I had  just checked my b/g which was high I continued to walk with her.  During the walk a caregiver came and told me she was due down to 1st floor to get her hair cut.  We walked a while then went to get her hair cut.  The lady did a good job and even put a few curls in it.  I took her back to her room and stayd with her until about 15 after expecting a call to come down for the shuttle.  I went down and sat until 11:30 then called the Shuttle people and found out that  the shuttle had already bee there and I was supposed to be a no show.  A crime in their eyes.  If I had called just a minute before the driver got here I could cancel and it would be just a cancel.  A much less infraction.  I talked to the dispatcher and what had happened was so complicated they could not figuren out what had actually gone wrong so

they just contacted one of the shuttles who came much later than planned but I did get back for lunch and medicine.

The usual

 When Greg gave me my insulin I asked if he wanted to give me the treatment for the clots.  thinking that I could come back when he was less busy although he wasn't terrribly busy then.  What I got in return was "I can't do two things at once". Being a little put out at this I answered " I didn't ask you to do do two things at once." Without a word he went into the med room and brought out the salve to apply to the remaining clots. Some lady came down to the dining room not feeling well I guess and he was going on about her knowing not to come when she does not feel well.  I suppose there is some thing in the fine print about not coming into the dining room when not feeling well.. You should be there in the flu and cold season.  I dont hear anything then about not feeling well.  Of course they would have to bring your breakfast up to your room.  Something they dont like to do.  Kay seemed pretty well yesterday but hungry.  Very feeble however when walking.

Media lies

In The West Respect for Truth No Longer ExistsBy Paul Craig Roberts
August 17, 2014 "ICH" -  The Western media have proved for all to see that the Western media comprises either a collection of ignorant and incompetent fools or a whorehouse that sells war for money.
The Western media fell in step with Washington and blamed the downed Malaysian airliner on Russia. No evidence was provided. It its place the media used constant repetition. Washington withheld the evidence that proved that Kiev was responsible. The media’s purpose was not to tell the truth, but to demonize Russia.
Now we have the media story of the armored Russian column that allegedly crossed into Ukraine and was destroyed by Ukraine’s rag-tag forces that ISIS would eliminate in a few minutes. British reporters fabricated this story or were handed it by a CIA operative working to build a war narrative. The disreputable BBC hyped the story without investigating. The German media, including Die Welt, blared the story throughout Germany without concern at the absence of any evidence. Reuters news agency, also with no investigation, spread the story. Readers tell me that CNN has been broadcasting the fake story 24/7. Although I cannot stand to watch it, I suspect Fox “news” has also been riding this lame horse hard. Readers tell me that my former newspaper, The Wall Street Journal, which has fallen so low as to be unreadable, also spread the false story. I hope they are wrong. One hates to see the complete despoliation of one’s former habitat.
The media story is preposterous for a number of reasons that should be obvious to a normal person.
The first reason is that the Russian government has made it completely clear that its purpose is to de-escalate the situation. When other former Russian territories that are part of present day Ukraine followed Crimea, voted their independence and requested reunification with Russia, President Putin refused. To underline his de-escalation, President Putin asked the Russian Duma to rescind his authority to intervene militarily in Ukraine in behalf of the former Russian provinces. As the Russian government, unlike Washington or EU governments, stresses legality and the rule of law, Russian military forces would not be sent into Ukraine prior to the Duma renewing Putin’s authority so to do.
The second reason the story is obviously false is that if the Russian government decides to invade Ukraine, Russia would not send in one small armored group unprotected by air cover or other forces. If Russia invades Ukraine, it will be with a force capable of rolling up the rag-tag Ukrainian forces, most of which are semi-private militias organized by nazis. The “war” would last a few hours, after which Ukraine would be in Russia’s hands where it resided for hundreds of years prior to the dissolution of the Soviet Union and Washington’s successful efforts in 1991 to take advantage of Russian weakness to break apart the constituent provinces of Russia herself.
The third reason that the story is obviously false is that not a single Western news organization hyping the story has presented a shred of evidence in its behalf.
What we witness in this fabricated story is the total lack of integrity in the entirety of
the Western media.

A story totally devoid of any evidence to support it has been broadcast world wide. The White House has issued a statement saying that it cannot confirm the story, but nevertheless the White House continues to issue accusations against Russia for which the White House can supply no evidence. Consequently, Western repetition of bald-faced lies has become truth for huge numbers of peoples. As I have emphasized in my columns, these Western lies are dangerous, because they provoke war.
The same group in Washington and the same Western “media” are telling the same kind of lies that were used to justify Washington’s wars in Iraq (weapons of mass destruction), Afghanistan (Taliban = al Qaeda), Syria (use of chemical weapons), Libya (an assortment of ridiculous charges), and the ongoing US military murders in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia.
The city upon the hill, the light unto the world, the home of the exceptional, indispensable people is the home of Satan’s lies where truth is prohibited and war is the end game.
Update: After pretending that the Russian humanitarian truck convoy contained a hidden invasion force, the stooge Kiev government was forced by facts on the ground to officially acknowledge that the trucks only contained aid for those that the Kiev stooge government has been bombing and attacking with artillery.

It appears that nobody knows what is actually happening. Maybe they never have. But in the past people believed that government officials and the press truly knew and reported what was happening, exactly who was doing what to whom and why. Today it is apparent that no matter how much electronic surveillance, spies, torturers, double agents, are out there, government officials still don't know what is happening. So they make up a narrative because they know everyone expects them to know. Billion of $$ spent on "intelligence", but there is none anywhere within Washington or among it's agents.

The Peace is Shattered.

 It has been quite pleasant around here but now Greg is back.  I have had a problem getting this cautherized place on my nose to stop bleeding.  First the doctor, when I left his office, told me I could take the bandage off the next day.  That was of course assuming all went well which it usually does in these instances.  Working with the other nurses has  been good because they are willing to discuss my problem.   After all it is my nose and I have lived with it for 93 years.  They also know I have to live with it 24 hours a day.  At medic time this morning it was one order after another to the people people there for their treatment or pills.  Greg is a public relations disaster for this place. People deserve more than being rdered around like cattle.  Also I have had to stop bleeding many times over my life and know somthing about it. Even being cautherizeed is not new.
Sitting at the table waiting for lunch like a nest of birds waiting to be fed, Greg walks in, aparently caught up for the moment, and leans over and whispers something in the ear of the lady across from me.  When he leaves she tells us that he told her she had no support hose on. She dressed herself so I can see there is no way she doesn't know it.  Which she acknowledges.  Due to her diabetes and consequently excessive carohydrates she is developing congestive heart failure.  Say heart failure and I am sure it would get her attention but for the  moment says  she feels well and does't tie the swelling of the legs to the real cause of it.  She is overweight, uses a wheel chair but can walk. I say nothing because I have had experisnce with people who eat as she does and know how hopeless it is to try to educate.  If she asks for my unwanted portion of a piece of cake or other goodie I give it to her.  Some doctors say it is easier to cure cancer than obesity.  Eating a certain way for 50 or 60 years is almost  impossible to change. 

Kay was very alert today when I found her walking the hall.  They were beginning exercises which she does not participate  in so I just took her to her room when I gave her a couple truffles. We stayed together until time to go.  She just likes being with me and I with her.  Must go now.   

Wednesday, August 13, 2014


 Of course I found out today what the doctor wanted do with the spot on my nose. Read my previous post yesterday about what happened.  The nurse today changed my bandage and freely discussed what was going on and what the Dr, wanted.  So Greg is just being a pr**k.   An arrogant one for sure. Enough of this.  Today Tom will return the HP computer because the  keyboard is hard to read and the desktop display is off center and I cant see the start button so I can use the mouse.  I doubt I will get another.  I will stop and see if I can get skype up  and running   so Loren can send me video of the wedding. Bye.

A video message from Chris Hedges

chris Hedges has this to say about what is going on in Gaza.  Read and weep

a most unpeasant LPN

 Got to see Kay this afternoon instead of the AM because I and a doctors appt to look at some skin irruptions.  They were nothing.  But he found a couple objects to remove.  They had appeared a couple months ago.  Kay was in asleep but dressed.  I sat down but she woke and smiled at me.  So she seemed normal.  I sat beside her and held her hand on and off while she  slept on and off.  She was still in bed when I left.  She waved and smiled as I waved to her.

There is one Nurse (LPN) here is an arrogant SOB.  When I started back from the doctor  the cauterized place on my nose began to bleed. Not wanting the thing to bleed all  night I stopped at the Med room so the nurse (Greg) could contact the doctor in case something could be done before the office closed.    When he saw it he said it was not bleeding now.  I told him I had just blotted it. He said we would wait and see what happened.  I mentioned that the reason I came in was so he could call the doctors office before it closed.  Greg said he was going to call.  As if had already thought of it.  I went to my room to lie down to try to get it to stop.  Which it did but started up again with some physical movement. It did stop after dinner .  After dinner I went in to see what came about with his contact with the doctor but all I got was the big freeze and he would tell me nothing.  He said  the bandage would be removed in the  AM which is what the doctor said when I left the office.  I asked what would we do if removing the bandage made it bleed again.  I was thinking that if the clot came with it it would start bleeding again.  I wanted to know would I have to go back to the Doctor.  He told me if was going to self medicate not to come to him. In other words shut the f**ck up.  I guess he seems to think that this doctor information is none of my business.      The most unpleasant guy to be around.  He apparently thinks he is god.

How it was today

I don't think that Kay smiled the entire time I was with her today.  I know she was glad to see me  because when I saw her in the activity room she waved at me when she saw me.  They were doing exercises which she does not participate in like several others.  It was warm so  I took her out to the patio and we sat there for a short time. She had gotten to the activity room without her walker so we shared mine.  After she had been attended to by the care giver she lay on the bed and I held her hand while sitting in a chair next to her.  Even though I would kiss her and tell her I loved her she did not smile.  She did not seem to  be hurting.  In other respects she seemed to be in a normal state.  The way she gets around varies from time to time and even during a stay.  Today  she was slow physically.  Mentally too.  But she has been this slow before so I don't know if I should read anything into it.   I do have to think of what it might mean for the future and I dread it.  When that time does come and wherever it is I will be there twice a day. When I left her today she seemed to manage a small wave if I saw correctly.

Urology departemt, can you hold?

 Normal visit today.  Like the others except I stayed in her room because she was still in bed but dressed I think. I didn't get a chance to ask anyone if she ate breakfast.  I gave her a couple truffles and part of a two cheese sandwich which she did not eat.  I couldn't either.   Will never order a two cheese sandwich again.  Just cheese and mayo. Did you hear about the guy who called the Urology department and was asked if he could hold? Shirley sent me a card with that theme on it. Everyone here I showed it to thought it was hilarious.  I sat and held Kay's hand until time to go.  She seemed about the same to me.

Short Visit

 Very short visit today as the bus got me there late.  We sat in the sun for a while and she ate 3 of the truffles.  Lindorf.   Butter flavor white chocolate.  The absolute best.  I stayed inside  for the remainder of my stay.  She seems to be in a steady state at the present.  I help her up but she would be able to do it herself if I were not there. She waved and smiled at me when I left. So she expects me to be back I take it.

i am thinking about two visits a day. 

 It was a short visit today with Kay because I got there so late.  Nothing happened of note that I can think of.  I did go on the same shuttle as the woman who is in the mobile device that also operates as her bed.  She seems almost totally paralyzed and is also on oxygen.  I went back at a different time so I don't know if she had already gone. What dedication.  I am cutting back on my computer time and wonder if I might start going over in the afternoon too and see how it works out. I have noticed several who died quickly in a facility such as she is in.. I wonder if my constant contact helps keep her alive?

Groobers, Shickle and Otherwise

August 6, 2014
Unstable countries are unstable, this not always being obvious in those countries, and then comes a man on a horse. The United States, methinks, is not particularly stable.
That anything seismic might happen is an idea doubtless inconceivable to most Americans, who still remember the America of Reader’s Digest, but is daily less improbable. Weimar America is not stable. The cracks in the foundations, the social crumbling and virulent antipathies grow daily more evident.
The economy declines, jobs leave for other climes, the petroyuan looms, college graduates crushed by debt find no work, the middle class shrinks, and the young begin to live perforce with their parents. Times of diminishing expectations are dangerous.
City after city joins the ranks of the bankrupt, semiliterate, corrupt black Bantustans which by honest naming would be called Lower Third World. Their culture is utterly alien to that of Eurowhites. Across the open border to the south pour huge waves from the Latino slums, less alien to Eurowhites, less hostile, but nonetheless threatening to form yet another country within a country. The Third World proportion of America closes rapidly on a full third. Despite desperate attempts to impose multicultural harmony, experience shows that widely disparate peoples who do not like each other do not enjoy happy endings. My country ‘tis of three, sweet land of dystrophy….
America can no longer be called a democracy. The Constitution recedes in memory. Congress and the Supreme Court amount to nothing. Washington rests uneasily in the hands of a half-mad clique of geopolitical illiterates, warlike misfires playing dangerous games like little Kaiser Wilhelms in a sandbox. Presiding over the city is Septimius Severus, Bokassa III, a negligible pol from Chicago who doesn’t like whites or understand European norms of government. He will keep the borders open and civil liberties in retreat.
A sort of insanity rules, warning of stress building along many political San Andreas faults waiting for the Big One. A pathologically aggressive United States bombs countries almost at random while little boys are dragged from school in handcuffs for pointing a finger and saying “Bang.”  Girls suffer from bulimia and anorexia, lunacies nonexistent in psychically healthy societies. A crack-brained feminism makes cockamamie circuses of the universities. Bastardy runs at a perilous thirty percent among white women, verging on cultural disintegration, and seventy percent among blacks. The epicene young grow in sheltered, meaningless hothouse-suburbs, never having worked, baited a hook, been in a schoolyard fight, or existed outside of a feckless bored helplessness.
From the cellars come prancing homosexuals, men in dresses and panties, the surgically altered inverts and sadomasochistic hobbyists. The high schools are become drug markets, differing only slightly from the middle schools. Life is a cabaret, old chum, here in Caligula’s bedroom.
An actual breakup of America does not seem inconceivable. Maine wants out. In the Southwest, Hispanics move rapidly toward demographic and then voting majorities. These states were once part of Mexico, and Mexicans know it. If they chose to ignore the federal government? Mississippi is thirty-seven percent black. An increase of five or ten percent by birth or immigration, a tipping point, white flight, et voila, a black republic. Would Washington send troops to retake these regions? It can’t even enforce its marijuana laws in Colorado and Washington State.
Below this seething maelstrom of degeneracy lie dangerous shoals of cultural conservatism, of people who believe in two sexes and birth within wedlock and orderly society obedient to law. They are quietly very, very angry at seeing everything they stand for eaten away by the multi-culti, touchy-feely, everything-goes miasma emanating from Washington. They speak of personal responsibility, learning the multiplication tables, English as the national language, and no toleration of crime-- and they know who commits it. Whether you think them simple-minded and fascist or wholesome and self-reliant defines which side of the gaping cultural divide you inhabit.
In times like these arises a yearning for a strong man to sweep away the filth, banish the disorder, and restore a possibly existent former Elysium. Such desires usually involve assertion of the national myths, in this case of the brave, self-reliant, and clean-living Davy Crockett and the immaculately wholesome small towns of Norman Rockwell. These never were, which doesn’t matter. Tthe America of 1960 came much closer than what we now have.
And so a strong man arises from somewhere. With luck you end up with Lee Kuan Yew instead of Mussolini or, worse, that dark squatty effeminate blond Aryan superman of the Beer Hall Putsch. Unfortunately you can’t tell who you have got until after you have got him.
Authoritarianism is not without a pull. Among old hands who have been around the East one not infrequently hears approving reference to the immigration-and-customs forms the stews handed out on final into Singapore’s airport. I doubt that I can quote it verbatim, but I can come close.
“There is a death penaltyin Singapore for importation or possession of drugs. This penalty is carried out.” Color in the original. Singapore’s problems with drugs were, well, exiguous. Why, who would have thought it?
In these conversations there usually comes up the case of the young American caught vandalizing cars in Singapore. The  punishment is a particularly agonizing form of caning. This caused horror in the US on one side of the cultural divide, but satisfaction on the other. “Reckon the stupid bastard's goimg to key any more cars?” As a society becomes ever more permissive and lawless, this sort of thinking gains in attractiveness.
In America, something is going to happen. It will not happen just now. Things are not yet bad enogh. Wait. Whether it will be a continued slow sinking into an internally chaotic semi-bushworld status, or a serious war with Russia and China started by brain-burnt sexagenarian adolescents in Congress and pasty neocons with Napoleonic fantasies, or a coup by the military, or something else, I don’t know. A Pentagonal coup d’├ętat does not seem likely, granted. Our generals are not greatly political as long as they get their toys and wars, and they lack the doughty moralism of a Hindenburg or Ludendorff.
In practical terms, though, four helicopter gunships and twenty Black Hawks of troops arriving over Washington from Quantico would do it. Whether the public would care enough to do anything about it, or whether there would be anything they could do, is uncertain. Enough people are sick enough of the current state of things that they might say, what the hell, give it a try. The crucial question world then be how the rest of the military would respond.
Think of it as Merle Haggard versus Justin Bieber. Or Sarah Palin versus Paris Hilton. But something is going to happen.

War with Russia

“Intelligent American” Is An Oxymoron
Obama’s White House Press Conference

By Paul Craig Roberts

I just heard on National Public Radio two things that have totally destroyed what tiny bit of belief I still had in American leadership. I have concluded that the term “intelligent American” is an oxymoron.

American elites have decided that Americans are not sufficiently threatened by war and economic chaos, so they are bringing the ebola virus to America. National Public Radio reported that two people infected with the ebola virus, which cannot be cured and is usually deadly, are being brought to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia.

All it takes is one cough, one sneeze, one drop of saliva, and the virus is loose in one of the main transportation centers of the US.

Pandemic anyone? Little doubt but that most of the world would emit a great sigh of relief to be rid of Washington.

Allegedly the ebola carriers will be quarantined in special rooms. But we already know that American hospitals cannot even contain staph infections.  What happens to the utensils, plates, cups, and glasses with which the ebola infected persons eat and drink? And who gets to clean the bed pans? One slip-up by one person, one tear in a rubber glove, and the virus is loose.

If we don’t die from ebola, we still have to dodge nuclear war. I heard part of Obama’s press conference. Obama accused Putin of doing everything that only Obama is doing.

If Obama believes what he told the press, he is utterly disinformed by his advisors. If he doesn’t believe the crude propaganda that he speaks, he is consciously leading the drive to war with Russia which probably means war with China as well and the end of us all.

Keep in mind that after eight years the US military was unable to successfully occupy Iraq and that after 13 years the US is unable to defeat a few thousand lightly armed Taliban in Afghanistan.

Russia and China are not Iraq, Libya, or Afghanistan.

War with Russia will be nuclear. Washington has prepared for it. Washington has abandoned the ABM treaty, created what it thinks is an ABM shield, and changed its war doctrine to permit US nuclear first strike. All of this is obviously directed at Russia, and the Russian government knows it. How long will Russia sit there waiting for Washington’s first strike?

Russia hasn’t done anything except get in the way, belatedly, of Washington’s lies that Washington uses to start wars. Russia (and China) went along with Washington’s lies about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. Russia (and China) went along with Washington’s lies that Washington’s 13-year attempted conquest and occupation of Afghanistan had to do with finding Osama bin Laden. Russia (and China) fell for Washington’s deception that a UN resolution establishing a no-fly zone over Libya was for the purpose of preventing Gaddafi’s air force from bombing his own people, only to discover that Washington misused the resolution to send the NATO air force to overthrow the Libyan government.

When Washington drew a “red line” in the sand with regard to the Syrian government’s use of chemical weapons against the outside forces that Washington had organized and sent into Syria to overthrow the government, all the while pretending that these Islamists mercenaries were the true spokesmen for democracy in Syria, most of the world knew that Washington was about to organize a chemical attack and blame Assad. When the Washington orchestrated attack happened on schedule, this time Russia and China did not fall for it. And neither did the British Parliament. Washington was unable to produce any evidence for the charges that Washington made and hoped would bring in at least the British to support Washington’s military assault on Syria. Russia, however, was able to produce evidence, and the evidence foiled Washington’s plot against Syria.

Russia’s intervention angered Washington, as did Russia’s intervention that blocked
Washington’s plot to attack Iran. Washington, devoid of all evidence and in contradiction to the reports from the International Atomic Energy Agency from inspectors on the ground in Iran that there was no diversion of uranium from the legal energy program to a weapons program, had Iran set up for attack. Iran was surrounded by about 40 US military bases and two of Washington’s fleets off its coast.

But in stepped Russia and worked out a deal, which Washington had to accept, that kept Iranian uranium enrichment at the low level used for energy, a level far below weapons requirements.

Two black marks agains Russia whose government prevented wars that Washington wanted. Russia (and China) were supposed to endorse Washington’s lies like the puppet states of Europe, Canada, Australia, and Japan, countries that long ago gave up their sovereignty to Washington.

Unfortunately for Russia, Russia demonstrated that Russia had achieved sufficient power and influence to block Washington’s war plans and, thereby, brought into action against Russia the Wolfowitz Doctrine. I have cited this doctrine in recent columns, but you can google it and read it for yourself. The doctrine is the basis for Washington’s foreign policy and declares that the principle goal of Washington’s foreign policy is to prevent the rise of any country that could serve as a check on Washington’s hegemony over the world. (The doctrine explicitly mentions Russia but also applies to China.)

Washington is disturbed that Russia has twice foiled Washington’s war intentions and that the Parliament of the US Puppet State of Great Britain voted with the Russians.
Washington is also concerned with the growing economic and political relations between Washington’s EU puppet states and Russia. EU countries, especially Germany, have numerous and profitable economic connections with Russia, and all of Europe is dependent on Russian supplied energy.

Washington concluded that Washington was in danger of losing its control over Europe.
While the Russian government was asleep at the switch enjoying the Olympics, Washington pulled off its coup in Kiev.

Neoconservative Victoria Nuland, appointed by Obama as Assistant Secretary of State,
announced at a press conference last December that Washington had spent $5 billion
purchasing fifth column Ukrainian NGOs that can be put into street demonstrations to destabilize a government and on grooming and purchasing Ukrainian politicians who will serve as Washington’s stooges. Nuland, of course, described Washington’s purchase of Ukraine as “furthering democracy” in Ukraine.

Washington’s coup against a democratically elected government brought to power extreme elements that proclaimed their hatred of Jews and Russians. These elements destroyed Russian war memorials erected to remember Russia’s liberation of Ukraine from the Third Reich, passed legislation outlawing Russian as an official language, and engaged in violent physical attacks on the Russian speaking population.

Ukraine has always been an area of changing borders. As some have put it, “Ukraine is a country in search of borders.” When Ukraine was a Soviet province, Soviet leaders attached, for various reasons, traditional Russian provinces to the Ukraine Socialist Soviet Republic. When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, pressure from Washington on a weak Russia resulted in the separation of Ukraine from Russia and this included Crimea, a part of Russia since the 1700s and Russia’s warm water port.

The Russian populations in the former Russian territories that Soviet leaders foolishly attached to Ukraine were alarmed by the extreme Russophobia of the government that Washington established in Kiev. The former Russian territories voted to rejoin their mother country and to depart the Russophobic US puppet state established in Kiev.

The Russian government accepted the request from Crimea, but not the requests from the other former Russian provinces in order to demonstrate to Europe that Russia was not provocative and not the source of the crisis. Putin even had the Russian Duma rescind his power to intervene militarily in Ukraine in order to protect the secessionist provinces.

This restraint hurt rather than helped the Russian government’s position. Washington
used its propaganda machine to label self-determination by Crimeans as “invasion and annexation by Russia of Crimea.”

Russia’s restraint with regard to requests to rejoin Russia from the other former Russian provinces resulted in a Washington encouraged military attack by its puppet government in Kiev against the separatist provinces that Russia refused to accept. Washington’s propaganda then succeeded in blaming Russia for the war that Washington launched on the separatist provinces.

Washington is not interested in the truth, and Russia cannot win a propaganda war with Washington which controls the world language, which is English, the language of Washington’s propaganda. The Western media consists of idiots who are enabling Washington’s drive toward war and the extermination of life on earth.

If the Russian government had accepted the separatist provinces request, there would be no war. The Ukrainian government is demented and controlled by Washington, but it is not going to attack territories acknowledged by Russia as its territory.

By showing restraint, Russia has convinced Washington that Russia is weak, and Washington has increased the pressure. Russia has convinced Europe that there is
no cost from Russia to Europe’s complying with Washington’s sanctions. By relying on good will, reasonableness, truth and evidence, Russia has misread Washington and its craven European puppets.

What Obama meant in his White House Press Conference today (August 1) when he said that Putin should use diplomacy–which Putin has been using to no effect–is that Putin should hand Crimea, over the objection of Crimeans and the Russian people, to Washington’s puppet government in Kiev so that Washington can evict Russia from its warm weather port and access to the Mediterranean Sea, thus making redundant Russia’s naval base at Tartus, Syria. Obama also wants Putin to send into the separatist areas of Ukraine, areas that traditionally were part of Russia, Russian military forces to subdue the breakaway territories for Washington’s puppet government in Kiev.

This is Washington’s “diplomatic” position. Only a totally demented person could regard Obama’s position as realistic.

As a person who is considered fair-minded by world media and who arrives at reasonable conclusions independently of Washington’s propaganda, I am often interviewed by foreign as well as US independent media organizations. As of late, the Russian media has turned to me on a number of occasions. What I have learned is that the Russian media is perplexed by Washington’s hostility to Russia.

Russia is not operating in the old Confederate South trying to turn the American South
against Washington for Washington’s rapine, murder, and destruction of the Southern culture, but Washington is operating in the Russian South trying to turn Ukraine, long a part of Russia, against Russia.

As Russians, except perhaps for the government, are unaware of the Wolfowitz Doctrine, they do not know that the main goal of Washington is to prevent the rise of all other powers that could limit Washington’s role as sole Unipower, Hegemon over Earth.

Instead of realizing the real threat, Russian media organizations ask me if the Russian budget can stand responding to sanctions from Washington and the EU by cutting off the energy supply to Europe.

Each time I hear this question I am astonished. Russia can shut down much of European industry and deprive the Europeans of heat in winter, and Russian media ask me if Russia can afford it?

Can Russia afford to be demonized by lies, to be driven into the ground by propagandistic sanctions that will hurt Europe and some US corporations, to convey the
image that Russia is so weak as to be helpless in the face of Western sanctions as to accept the sanctions without demonstrating the cost to Europe and the US?

Does Washington even have Russians brainwashed?

I am concerned about the crisis that Washington has orchestrated, because I believe it is leading to war, which will be nuclear. Are you ready to be destroyed over Washington’s lies about one Malaysian airliner? I am convinced that Washington is behind the destruction of MH-17, because Washington’s propaganda show was already ready and was instantly in performance. That Washington is responsible is the reason that Washington will not release its satellite photos of the area during the moment of the airliner’s destruction. That Washington is responsible is the reason that Washington replies to Russian hard evidence with lies and propaganda. It is Obama and Obama’s stooges in Kiev that refuse to negotiate, not Russia.

Russia has as many nuclear warheads as Washington, and Washington’s “ABM shield” is a farce. If the insane American government drives a crisis, which Washington alone created, to war, we will all die, and for what? The answer is: for a Washington LIE.

Do you want to die for a lie? Another Washington lie?

If you don’t, you had better let Washington know.

Russia cannot end this crisis unless it puts its foot down. I have previously made the case that Russia should take its case to the UN. Alternatively, the Russian government needs to engage Europe in two questions. One is does Europe want its energy supplies from Russia cut off, energy that Washington, despite its lies, cannot replace for 3 or more years if at all.. The other is does Europe want war with Russia and does Europe think that those idiotic countries that host Washington’s missiles won’t be nuked and exterminated?

The crisis in Ukraine will continue to Russia’s and all of humanity’s cost until Russia explains to the stupid, arrogant, hubris-filled West that the West’s criminal and aggressive actions against Russia bear a real cost, and that Russia is prepared to impose the cost.

The propagandized people in the West have no idea of the fate toward which their demented governments are driving them. Russia needs to make it clear to the brainwashed propagandized peoples in the West that Russia is not going to be a puppet state of the West or to accept gratuitous aggression from the White House Fool.

It would help to save life on Earth if China also made this clear.

The sooner the better.

Unless the world reins in the demented criminals in Washington, the world has signed its own death warrant.
