Address by the President of the Russian Federation on Sep 21st 2022
international / politics / elections / news report Friday September 23, 2022 21:33 by 1 of Indy   image 1 image
The full text of Putin's speech announcing the partial mobilization is reproduced here because the MSM and The West have gone completely bonkers and have been misrepresenting what was said. Also they are saying outright that Russia is losing and Putin's back is against the wall etc etc. The actual reality is nothing of the sort.

The Russians don't do bullshit like the politicians in the West do and are very upfront.

Therefore rather than listen to the "interpretation" made by the MSM and politicians who don't want you to read the actual speech and what he really said and the context, it makes more sense for you to read it yourself and make up your own mind.

People ought to remember that the West is openly saying they want to bring down the government of Russia and prolong the war to hurt them. The people saying this are not peace keepers and are not your friend. We are now all facing into Winter where it looks like we are going to face severe discomfort and blackouts, as well as huge energy prices and shortages. This will destroy the economy. Europe is committing suicide through these insane sanctions that only hurt Europe at the behest of the US & NATO. It is therefore prudent to see what is behind the curtain

Europe is committing economic suicide all because they are doing the bidding of US Neocons by imposing ridiculous sanctions against Russia which are doing far more damage to Europe and very little to Russia. They are equivalent to threatening to shoot yourself in both feet and the head and then going ahead and doing it. It is a completely idiotic and absurd situation that Europe has arrived in. We are already seeing the initial consequences in the form of fuel price rises and inflation.

The sanctions have actually done three things. They have strengthened Russia's finances and independence, they have accelerated the destruction of the dollar and all fiat currencies connected to it and they are dealing an economc death blow to Europe's economy. By refusing Russian gas it has led to soaring prices and there is no viable alternative to replace the huge quantities of it. Gas is not just used for heating but also for generating base load electrical power. And Russian oil is used to supply a large chunk of the diesel fuel used in Europe and literally everything we buy and do, needs diesel. Diesel is the life blood of the real physical world. Any disruption there and we will all feel it very directly very quickly.

The Irish government are fully aware of the potentially dire consequences of these reckless decisions because they have made it known that they have emergency plans for fuel rationing. Unfortunately it seems the public don't fully realize the scale of the pending crisis and that it is all caused by war-mongering and the belligerent actions of US & NATO cheered on by our own clueless politicians. It is quite clear that every government and institution is captured by sinister elements and those in key positions of power and influence have either been bought off or blackmailed. This was all very evident during Covid, when we saw how governments moved in lockstep to a single script, orchestrated by the totalitarian forces in the background. The Epstein revelations gave the public an insight into the extent and depth of blackmail and how it reached the highest echelons of society.

international / politics / elections / opinion/analysis Tuesday July 26, 2022 16:10 by Boris Johnson's political demise offers a lesson for US Republicans
For millions of Americans watching last week's political drama in London, the spectacle was welcome entertainment, a respite from the bitter divisions racking the United States and a reassuring reminder that other countries also endure convoluted political theater. But it was also a wistful reminder that even if the US doesn't have a monopoly on edge-of-your-seat political machinations, other democracies seem to handle theirs more successfully. read full story / add a comment

We have been contacted by many people about Senator Horkan’s recent statements in the Seanad. We have drafted a submission you can lodge with the Cathaoirleach of the Seanad and the complaints department of the two Houses of the Oireachtas in the first instance.

It is fundamental that people collectively act against such discriminatory and divisive statements to hold public representatives to account. read full story / add a comment
