Tucker Carlson Warns “They’re All Afraid” As Trump Faces Military Firing Squad
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
A gobsmacking new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today first notes State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin factually assessing about the “Special De-Nazification Operation” to liberate Ukraine: “President Joe Biden, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and other Western officials have started calling it a war of attrition…They have put huge amounts of money into militarizing the Kiev regime…Where has it gotten them?…The simple facts are these: the West is experiencing weapons and ammunition shortages, people in Europe and the United States have lost trust in politicians, and the Kiev regime’s counteroffensive has failed…The outcome of the war of attrition also includes economic problems in Europe and the United States, a lack of manpower for the Ukrainian armed forces, and ultimately bankruptcy and demographic disaster for Ukraine…These seven facts speak for themselves: Ukraine will cease to exist as a state unless the Kiev regime capitulates on Russia’s terms…More than 10.5 million people have fled Ukraine…Another 11.2 million residents of Crimea, Sevastopol, the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics and the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions decided to join Russia…Ukraine has lost 53.7% of its population since 2014”.
In support of a “war of attrition”, this report notes, Ukraine President Vladimir Zelensky demonically proclaimed to his warmongering socialist Western colonial powers puppet masters: “$100 billion and hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian lives will buy you the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Russians…A proxy war is lot cheaper than engaging in a direct war with them”—a demonic proclamation joined by the horrifying news: “Canadian Jewish organizations and social media critics are slamming the Canadian Parliament for giving a man who fought for the Nazis a standing ovation during an event featuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s visit to the country”—and today, the Wall Street Journal grimly revealed: “Across Ukraine, fresh graves and packed morgues attest to the tens of thousands of lives cut short by Russia’s invasion…Less visible is the toll on babies unborn…The number of births during the first six months of this year was 28% lower than the same period before the war—the sharpest fall since Ukraine gained independence in 1991…Even before Russia invaded, Ukraine’s fertility rate—the number of babies born per woman—was the lowest in Europe…Ukrainian demographers are now forecasting it will become the lowest in the world”.
In testimony before the European Parliament on 7 September, this report continues, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg admitted over 500,000 Ukrainian soldiers have died, and when asked if he knew that the Ukrainian Nazi Regime had begun mobilizing even the limited fit and sick, he shockingly replied: “No one ever said it would be easy…We knew from the beginning that it would be a bloody counteroffensive…We see that Russia has correctly prepared its defenses”—and as to how actually “bloody” it has become for unfit and sick Ukrainian soldiers forced to die for their socialist Western colonial puppet masters, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) reported today: “On 25 September 2023, at about 13:00 Moscow time, the Russian armed forces carried out a group strike using high-precision long-range weapons to strike unmanned aerial vehicles at the points of temporary deployment of foreign mercenaries and training of sabotage groups of the Ukraine military…All targets have been hit, and the objective of the strike has been achieved…In addition, enemy losses amounted to up to 445 Ukrainian military personnel killed and wounded, one tank, three infantry fighting vehicles, and 11 cars in the Donetsk direction…Moreover, Russia repelled two attacks by Ukraine in the Zaporozhye direction, where Kiev lost up to 100 servicemen, as well as two attacks by the Ukrainian forces in the Krasny Liman direction, with Ukraine losing up to 55 troops”.
With the British media revealing wounded Ukrainian soldiers telling them such things like: “I am absolutely ready to shoot myself in the leg rather than ever go back to the front”, this report details, Russian military forces have established the radio frequency 149.200 that Ukrainian soldiers can tune into to find how to surrender, over 800 of whom have used to choose life over certain death—and after reviewing official documents leaked by the Ukrainian military, it caused world renowned Brazilian geopolitical analyst Pepe Escobar to gravely observe: “It’s now firmly established that the Ukrainian counter-offensive turned out to be the feeder of a bloody meat grinder of astonishing proportions”.
To mobilize its unsuspecting peoples into waging a catastrophic war it eventually lost, this report notes, the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (aka Nazi Party) branded Russian and Jewish peoples as sub-human vermin threats to democracy needing to be exterminated to unleash World War II, and massacred them by the tens-of-millions—a Nazi tactic of racist genocide employed against Russia after President Donald Trump won his stunning election victory in 2016—a stunning election victory blamed on Russian interference—after spending tens-of-millions of dollars, the Mueller Report concluded: “We found no evidence of Russian collusion in the 2016 election”—after spending more tens-of-millions of dollars the Durham Report concluded: “The FBI should never have launched a full investigation into connections between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia during the 2016 election”—the Wall Street Journal then revealed: “The Russia-Trump collusion narrative of 2016 and beyond was a dirty trick for the ages, and now we know it came from the top—candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton. That was the testimony Friday by 2016 Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook in federal court, and while this news is hardly a surprise, it’s still bracing to find her fingerprints on the political weapon”—and is a history worth remembering because yesterday, it saw demonic socialist leader Hillary Clinton warning about President Putin: “I don’t think, despite all of the deniers, there is any doubt that he interfered in our election, or that he has interfered in many ways in the internal affairs of other countries, funding political parties, funding political candidates, buying off government officials in different places…He hates democracy…He particularly hates the West and he especially hates us…And he has determined that he can do two things simultaneously…He can try to continue to damage and divide us internally, and he’s quite good at it…Part of the reason he worked so hard against me is because he didn’t think that he wanted me in the White House…Part of the challenge is to continue to explain to the American public what kind of leader Putin is”.
Prior to socialist leader Hillary Clinton branding as “deniers” the American peoples who actually read the Mueller Report and Durham Report she instigated with her “dirty trick for the ages”, this report continues, articles began appearing like “Worried Democrats Fret Trump Is More Electable Than Believed”—articles quickly followed by the news: “According to a NBC poll, Biden’s approval among black voters is down a whopping 17 points since the first year of his presidency…Biden is also down double digits among Latino voters without a college degree and independents”—yesterday it was revealed: “President Donald Trump enjoys a commanding 10-point lead over his anticipated rival President Biden for the White House in 2024…A Washington Post-ABC News poll reveals Democrat Biden lacking engagement with a skeptical public, with dissatisfaction growing over his handling of the economy and immigration, a rising share saying the U.S. is doing too much to aid Ukraine in its war with Russia and broad concerns about his age as he seeks a second term”—all of which was joined today by the leftist Washington Post article “Forget Fantasies About Replacing Biden. There Is No Viable Alternative”, wherein it fearfully assessed: “We’re back in Crazytown…Trump is the almost certain Republican nominee in 2024…And, if current polls are to be believed, he has an excellent chance of winning the presidency again — despite his two impeachments, his incitement of an insurrection, and the 91 felony counts he currently faces in four criminal cases”.
Slamming President Trump with multiple sham felony counts to actually interfere and influence an election, this report detail, is top socialist Biden Regime official Special Counsel Jack Smith, who last week added to his Trump prosecution team veteran war crimes prosecutor Alex Whiting, who worked as a prosecutor with the International Criminal Court—is an international war crimes prosecutor well knowledgably about how to convict and place defendants in front of a military firing squad—and as to why a military firing squad is now being planned for President Trump, the leftist American media threw out the outlandish claim last week: “Even Trump’s senior advisers feel that should he be re-elected he will put in jail any military, defense, and other leaders who would place the Constitution ahead of loyalty to Trump”.
In order to understand what’s happening in the “Crazytown” that America has now become, this report concludes, the world renowned Swiss weekly magazine Die Weltwoche (German for “The World Week”) founded in 1933 interviewed for analysis America’s most popular and trusted news Tucker Carlson, whose beyond chilling “They’re All Afraid” transcript reveals:
Weltwoche: Since leaving Fox and going solo with your new show, “Tucker Carlson On Twitter (now known as ‘X’),” your posts have logged tens and sometimes hundreds of millions of views. You’re taking off like Buzz Lightyear. Are you feeling the freedom? To explore more topics and ideas? To express your views?
Tucker Carlson: Well, definitely. If anything, I’ve expressed my views less. I haven’t done many straight-to-camera scripts where I write the script and give my opinion. I’ve done what I’ve wanted to do for a long time but couldn’t, which is get on an airplane and go see the rest of the world. I couldn’t because I had a daily show I had to do.
I’ve become convinced over the past several years — particularly since the war in Ukraine began — that the world is changing much more quickly than most Americans understand. And because there’s virtually no coverage of the rest of the world in American media, Americans don’t have a good sense of it.
What we, in this country, refer to as the “Post-War Order” — the institutions set up in the wake of World War II to keep the world peaceful and prosperous and the United States at the top of the pyramid, and that would include the dominance of the dollar, the SWIFT system, NATO — all of that appears to me to be crumbling. That’s my view of it. I’ve wanted to travel and see if that is, in fact, happening — and it is.
Weltwoche: The media as the “fourth estate” has a serious credibility problem, not just in the US. Here, it’s the same. The only national news organization in the US that scores the majority of the public’s trust is, according to YouGov [May 2023], The Weather Channel.
Weltwoche: Half of the American public believes that the news media deliberately attempts to mislead, misinform, and propagandize [Gallup, February 2023]. You’ve been in the news for so long. Why is the state of the media so miserable?
Carlson: Well, because if you want to subvert a democracy, you need to control the information that citizens receive. I’d argue that the news media in democracies is far less trustworthy than it is in other countries simply because it matters more in a democracy. People vote on the basis of the information they have. So, if you want to control their votes, you have to control what they know.
There has been a very aggressive attempt, over a number of decades on the part of the people who run the United States, to control what’s available on our news stations and in our newspapers — to control the news media. And they have.
Weltwoche: The people working for news media seem to go along with it.
Carlson: Of course they do, because they’re terrified. They’re just afraid. They go along with it, absolutely. They’re afraid to say something that will offend the people who run the government, who run the biggest companies and, most of the time, they won’t. And that’s not just a perversion of what they should be doing, it’s an inversion. They exist to hold the people in power accountable. Instead, they do exactly the opposite. They do their bidding.
For example, they roll out this vaccine in the United States. It has massive consequences for the population. Hundreds of millions of people take it, and no reporting on that vaccine – no real reporting — is allowed. People are, literally, fired from their jobs if they’d question the efficacy and the safety of that vaccine. That’s insane. In a functioning democracy, if you had a mandatory drug where everyone’s required to take it, the news media’s job would be to report out whether or not it’s safe and whether or not it works. They did just the opposite.
Even the war in Ukraine. This is potentially a nuclear conflict between superpowers. Shouldn’t we know all that we can? “No.” You’re not allowed.
I tried to interview Vladimir Putin, and the US government stopped me. So, think about that for a minute. By the way, nobody defended me. I don’t think there was anybody in the news media who said, “Wait a second. I may not like this guy, but he has a right to interview anyone he wants, and we have a right to hear what Putin says.” You’re not allowed to hear Putin’s voice. Because why? There was no vote on it. No one asked me. I’m 54 years old. I’ve paid my taxes and followed the law.
I’m an American citizen. I’m a much more loyal American than, say, Joe Biden or Kamala Harris, who didn’t even grow up in this country; she grew up in Canada. And they’re telling me what it is to be a loyal American? I’m just not even interested, at this point. I don’t even care. When David Frum [a staff writer for The Atlantic magazine] from Canada gets to tell me that I’m a disloyal American, it’s a joke. It’s a joke. And I don’t care what they think, actually, anymore. And I don’t have to care. So, I don’t.
Weltwoche: The high ratings your show is getting demonstrate that you raise a voice that people want to hear. One such example of media manipulation is the media suppression and dismissal of Hunter Biden’s laptop. You have studied the infamous “laptop from hell.” So have we, at Weltwoche, since the spring of last year. You have profound knowledge about the Biden business network. You were the first to interview the Biden business insider, Tony Bobulinski, in October 2020. From what you have seen, would you conclude that Joe Biden knew about his son’s business? That he facilitated it? And that he might have profited, himself?
Carlson: Well, those aren’t opinions. That’s factually established. We interviewed Devon Archer [Hunter Biden’s longtime close business partner and friend] last month, who, on dozens of occasions at business meetings, watched Joe Biden call his son Hunter during a business meeting. His son put him on speakerphone while Joe Biden was vice president of the United States in order to help his son’s business. By the way, the business, the so-called “business,” consisted wholly of being Joe Biden’s son. Hunter Biden had no expertise in energy. He knew nothing about Ukrainian gas. It’s a joke that he didn’t know. He had no relevant experience in, or knowledge of, any of the so-called “businesses” he ran.
He was purely selling access to his father. It’s not speculation. That’s what his business partner said, on the record, on camera. Yes, there’s no debate about that. That’s a fact.
I guess the media hate Trump so much or are profiting in some way, I suppose, from Joe Biden being president that they feel they’d have to lie about it. But they’re lying, period.
Weltwoche: Another story that has raised zero curiosity among the DC press is the allegation, reportedly made by his own daughter, Ashley, in her private diary, that Joe Biden may have behaved toward her in a way that she describes as “probably not appropriate” when she was a young girl. Hunter gave his dad the alias “Pedo Peter” in his cell phone contact list. I assume that in America “Pedo Peter” is an unusual term of address for one’s father. Why has the press shown so little interest in investigating these disturbing details, especially in the post-#MeToo era?
Carlson: Well, [Ashley] said it in her diary, whose only audience was herself. She didn’t allege it. She recorded it: that her father took showers with her as a child and, because he did, she became a sex addict. That’s what she wrote in her diary. The response from the Biden administration was to get the Department of Justice to raid the home of the man who had the diary, arrest the people who had the diary though they didn’t steal it, they paid for it. Ashley Biden left it behind in a house she’d been renting, and they never said anything about it.
That’s a sex crime. I have three daughters. I can promise you it’s not normal for a father to shower with his daughters. [Ashley] said, in her diary, “I think I have a sex addiction because my father showered with me.” That’s what she says.
By the way, Joe Biden has dementia and is not running the United States. So, that raises the obvious question: “Who is?”
Weltwoche: Who is?
Carlson: I would assume Barack Obama through his cutouts who work for Joe Biden. But I don’t know that. The New York Times hasn’t bothered to report on it, but Joe Biden has dementia. He’s not capable of speaking a complete sentence much less running the largest organization in human history, which is the US government. The whole premise is ridiculous, and now they’re telling us? He’s 80 years old. He can barely speak. He can barely walk. And he’s going to run, again, for president of the United States while there’s a war going on? The whole thing is so demented that we’re moving to the point where they’re not trying to convince anybody. They’re just trying to suppress and arrest people who ask questions. They’ve arrested dozens of people, of political opponents, not for committing crimes, but for opposing them in the past month. Dozens in the past month.
Our system is collapsing in real time. We’re watching this happen. If you read the American media, it’s stories about Kim Kardashian and lots of irrelevant crap about trannies and all this stuff. The bottom line is the president of the United States is non compos mentis.
Who is running the government? If you can’t answer that question, you’re not doing your job in the media, it would seem to me.
Weltwoche: In general, what gives you hope in a rather worrisome time, looking into the future?
Carlson: That the stakes have suddenly gotten so high that smart people are rethinking their assumptions. I see it all around me. I see people all around me asking themselves, “I used to believe this. Is it still true? Was it ever true? What is the truth?” People are focused on questions of truth and falsehood, I think, much more deeply than they ever have been, and that’s a good thing.
I also see an awakening of spiritual awareness and religious faith in the United States that I think is great. Not everyone is reaching the same conclusions that I’m reaching, but that’s okay. It’s better than thinking that Amazon’s going to make you happy, because Amazon is not going to make you happy, actually. That’s not true. That’s a lie. And more and more people seem to be concluding that it’s a lie, and I think that’s a great thing.
There’s this idea that somehow the main threat to our happiness is from religious people. That’s absurd. The main threat to our happiness is from people who think they’re God. They’re the dangerous ones. If you think that you’re God, there’s no limit to what you’ll do because you think you’re the final arbiter, you’re the final judge, you’re all-powerful. That’s terrifying.
I’m much more comfortable around religious people. I’m a Christian, but they don’t have to share my views. As I just said, I was actually meeting with some people the other day. There was a call to prayer right in the middle of our meeting, and everyone got up and got on their knees and faced toward Mecca and worshiped Allah. Twenty years ago, I would’ve thought, “Oh my gosh, how threatening!” Now, I thought, “How wonderful. How great is that?”

Russia Proclaims “So Be It” To “Empire Of Lies” Bloodlust For World War III
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
A foreboding new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today first notes Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov addressed the United Nations Assembly in New York City yesterday to warn: “The United States and its subordinate Western collective want to artificially divide humanity into hostile blocs…It is a tactic designed to force the world to play according to their self-centered rules”, says he then declared to the entire world about the godless warmongering socialist Western colonial powers: “A goal of inflicting a strategic defeat upon Russia has been declared…This obsession has ultimately blurred the vision of the reckless politicians, who feel a sense of impunity…All the while, they lose the sense of self-preservation…As Russian President Vladimir Putin put it, the West is now the real empire of lies”.
Demonstrating the loss of a “sense of self-preservation” in America, this report notes, a Gallop Poll released last week revealed: “The percentage of Democrats who identify as religious has dropped more than 20 points between 1999 and 2023…At the same time, there has been no meaningful change in Republicans self-identification as religious or spiritual, and independents have only experienced a modest change”—a revelation of deliberate human morality destruction that explains how the socialist Democrat Party was able to unleash godless leftist mobs full of bloodlust to tear apart the United States in 2020 killing dozens and causing a record-setting over $2 billion in wanton destruction to gain more power.
Kept from the knowledge of the American peoples, this report continues, is that their socialist Democrat Party politicians and elite leaders are under control of Satanic demon Marina Abramović, who conducted “Spirit Cooking Dinners” involving blood, human semen and the mock sacrifice of children for Hillary Clinton and other top elites—yesterday it saw socialist Western colonial puppet leader Ukraine President Vladimir Zelensky requesting Satanic demon Marina Abramović be made the Ukrainian Ambassador—and in knowing the dire threat now facing Russia from these godless socialist forces led by Satanic demons, Foreign Minister Lavrov proclaimed: “The West says that in general, Russia must be defeated on the battlefield…If the West wants to resolve the issue on the battlefield, so be it”.
On 28 January 1986, this report concludes, the worst disaster in the history of American space exploration occurred when the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded shortly after launching killing all aboard—was an historic deadly disaster that could have been prevented because top American government official Richard C. Cook kept trying to warn everyone that the space shuttle O rings were going to catastrophically fail in the cold weather the launch was made in—and though absolutely no one in the government or leftist media heeded his warning, Cook is now trying to prevent an even greater catastrophic disaster from occurring with his just released open letter “Is World War III About To Start? Part I: Drift Toward War”, wherein he factually documents, honestly explains and gravely warns:
It is likely that billions of people around the world view the conflict in Ukraine as a proxy war being waged by the U.S. against Russia. US President Joe Biden has pledged to aid Ukraine’s pursuit of victory “for as long as it takes”, without defining what the end state might be. Russian President Vladimir Putin has interpreted U.S. intentions to mean a fight “to the last Ukrainian”.
Anyone with a discernible pulse is aware of the danger that the conflict could escalate into a conflagration large and destructive enough to morph into World War III.
Of course, potential nuclear war between the U.S. and Russia, especially in its previous iteration as the Soviet Union, is nothing new. World War II was scarcely over before figures like Winston Churchill and U.S. banker Bernard Baruch began raising alarms about the existence of an “Iron Curtain” across Europe and the start of a “Cold War”.
But even before World War II began, the Roosevelt administration accepted the recommendation of studies by the Council of Foreign Relations, financed by the Rockefeller Foundation, that the U.S. should aim for postwar global military domination. Note that there was nothing in the U.S. Constitution that even remotely supports such a goal. The closest the U.S. might have come was the myth of “Manifest Destiny” that once supplied the ideology for coast-to-coast expansion; i.e., “from sea to shining sea”.
At the end of World War II, with the British Empire crumbling and Europe in ruins, there were two clear victors: the U.S. and the Soviet Union. The accepted logic of U.S. planners now dictated that the latter must go.
Stalin is said to have asked to join the newly-formed NATO but was rebuffed. He responded by forming the Warsaw Pact. The post-war standoff had begun and, 75 years later, has not ended.
With the Soviets being accused of fomenting leftist revolutions around the world, the U.S. military has been laying plans for a U.S.-Russian nuclear exchange ever since. While the military sought an advantage favorable to a nuclear first strike, the everyday working objective toward the Soviets was “containment”. Meanwhile, the U.S. began its own long history of generating coups friendly to its interests with the CIA’s overthrow of governments in Iran in 1953 and Guatemala in 1954.
In 1956, Eisenhower’s Secretary of State John Foster Dulles proclaimed a U.S. policy of “brinkmanship”. Speaking of the potential for nuclear war in a Life magazine interview, he said, “If you are scared to go to the brink, you are lost”. In 1961, President John F. Kennedy seemed to have stared down Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev over the planned installation of nuclear weapons in Cuba. Unknown publicly, JFK had already pulled U.S. nukes out of Turkey.
Nor are proxy wars anything new. They began with the Korean War. Of course, there were U.S. “boots on the ground”, but North and South Korea also fought against each other with Russia/China and the U.S./UN having the backs of each respectively. The Vietnam War was fought with U.S. troops and weapons aiding the South Vietnamese against the Russian-backed Hanoi regime and its ally, South Vietnam’s Viet Cong. The Korean conflict became a stalemate; Vietnam, a debacle.
But change was in the wind. JFK moved to revolutionize the discourse with his now-famous proposal for world peace delivered at American University on June 10, 1963. In the Soviet Union, Khrushchev denounced Stalin and proposed a new era of “Peaceful Coexistence” with the West. In the early 1970s, President Richard M. Nixon and his national security advisor Henry Kissinger sought détente with the Soviets along with their epochal opening to China.
Rapprochement with the Soviets was sabotaged by the Reagan military build-up in the 1980s and the lies of Soviet supremacy promulgated by the Committee on the Present Danger.
The U.S. was also creating the Mujahedeen to attack the Soviet military presence in Afghanistan. This was part of Reagan’s engagement in his own proxy wars—called the “Reagan Doctrine”—against leftist regimes in Asia, Africa, and Central America, with U.S.-supported “death squads” in El Salvador and elsewhere.
It was under Reagan that the faction known as the “Neocons” began their infiltration of the national security apparatus. These included “Trotskyite” intellectuals from New York like Irving Kristol; alumni of Democratic Senator Henry “Scoop” Jackson’s staff like Paul Wolfowitz and Richard Perle; “Team B” CIA analysts empowered by short-term Director George H.W. Bush, leading to the future prominence of Bob Gates; icons of the military-industrial complex like “Father of the H-Bomb” Edward Teller; Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney, who’d been joined at the hip to each other and to President Gerald Ford; Reagan’s Director of Central Intelligence William Casey; and many future dark personages like John Bolton.
It was Casey who famously said at one of Reagan’s early staff meetings, “We will know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American people believes is false”. This statement defined perfectly the future program of what we call today the “Deep State” and its mass media megaphone, especially outlets like The New York Times, the Washington Post, and CNN.
Things took a decided turn for the worse under President George H.W. Bush with the 1992 Wolfowitz Doctrine that reformulated the old CFR plans for global U.S. military dominance and contained the ominous warning that Russia was the only nation on earth with the power to destroy the U.S. By now, the U.S. had begun its next phase of global conquest with Bush’s war against Iraq—Desert Storm. The goal was total military colonization of the Middle East, with the “Greater Israel” project so near and dear to the hearts of the Neocons an obvious beneficiary. The Iran-Iraq War of 1980-6, with the U.S. arming both sides, doubtless had the same underlying purposes.
The oddity in the designation of Russia as the worst of enemies named in the Wolfowitz Doctrine was that a year earlier, the Soviet Union had collapsed, ceasing to exist in 1991, with U.S. hawks declaring that the Cold War was over and that the U.S. had won. Their corollary was that the Reagan military build-up had forced the Soviet economy into receivership because they couldn’t keep up with U.S. military spending.
But in a December 17, 2022, interview on the online news platform, The Duran, Jack F. Matlock, former U.S. ambassador to the Soviet Union, said that “the idea that we spent them to defeat was absolutely wrong”. He said the U.S. “did not win the Cold War”. He said the Soviet Union broke up because the Cold War was over by 1989 and that it was local nationalism that tore it apart. He added that the end of the Cold War was “negotiated as equals”.
But here was the rub: the Wolfowitz Doctrine proved that it wasn’t “communism” that the U.S. wanted to defeat, as Russia was no longer a communist state.
Matlock said that Gorbachev had abandoned communism in his UN speech of December 7, 1988. Nor was the U.S. really pushing for “democracy”. Overnight Russia had become more democratic than many of the authoritarian regimes the U.S. had been supporting around the world for decades, such as those in Saudi Arabia and Turkey. Rather it was Russia as a geopolitical enemy that the U.S. was targeting; meaning, in Russia’s eyes, its very existence as a territory, a state, and a civilization.
In order to promote peace with the West, Gorbachev had agreed to the reunification of East and West Germany as one nation and part of NATO, given U.S. Secretary of State James Baker’s agreement that NATO would not advance “one inch eastward” from the German border. This pledge was violated by the next three presidents—Clinton, Bush II, and Obama. Veteran U.S. statesman George Kennan opposed the expansion of NATO, while Ambassador Matlock called it “a great tragedy”.
Meanwhile, 9/11, the Neocons’ “new Pearl Harbor”, produced the “War on Terror”, the Patriot Act, the Department of Homeland Security, the military doctrine of Full-Spectrum Dominance, and the assaults on Afghanistan, Iraq, and later Libya. The ideological focal point was demonization of all things Islam. The rationale? “They hate our freedoms”.
But the 9/11 Truth Movement began to poke holes in the official conspiracy theory of terrorists with box cutters that over time became gaping abysses. The anti-Islam narrative began to wear thin when stacked up against U.S. military overkill, the CIA’s torture chambers, the useless expenditure of trillions of dollars shooting at goat herders, the absence of any evidence of WMDs in Iraq or co-conspirators anywhere, and Israel’s endless strife with the Palestinians.
Now Russia itself had begun to make a stand. At the 2007 Munich Security Conference, Putin challenged the attempt by the U.S. to achieve hegemony through creation of a “unipolar” world “in which there is one master, one sovereign”. He said, “at the end of the day this is pernicious”.
There was never any indication that Putin, in making his Munich declaration or afterwards, had any intention of restoring the Soviet “empire”. But he was absolutely determined to preserve Russia’s sovereignty and security despite the declared intention of factions in the West to break up Russia’s territory and gain control of its resources. He had also lamented the fact that with the collapse of the Soviet Union, 25 million ethnic Russians had been left out of what was now a unified and strengthening nation-state, blending a multiplicity of races, languages, and religions.
The “War on Terror” ended up being a tragic failure. So now the Western mainstream media jumped at their next big chance by depicting Putin as the bad guy du jour, even more “authoritarian”, and “evil” than either Saddam Hussein or Osama bin Laden. But they would have done the same had Donald Duck been president of Russia—a nasty, duck-billed, feathered tyrant who was attacking democracy, freedom, human rights, and, yes, the “New American Century” the Neocons had dreamt up.
Now the U.S., with the Neocons firmly entrenched in the State Department and elsewhere, surrounded Russia with military bases and attacked its perimeter with color revolutions in Georgia, Ukraine, and Kyrgyzstan, following on the dismemberment of Yugoslavia in the late 1990s and early 2000s. President Barack Obama then situated the Aegis Missile Defense System in Poland and Romania with the potential to activate missiles that could reach Moscow with nuclear warheads in six minutes. Talk was current of a possible “decapitation” strike against the Russian leadership.
Finally, in 2014, with “cookies” Victoria Nuland and Vice President Joe “Burisma” Biden in charge, the U.S. fomented a coup in Ukraine with the aid of paid snipers to drive out a president friendly toward Russia and his replacement with a NeoNazi junta that put Ukraine on a war footing. In response, Russia annexed the Crimean Peninsula, where Sevastopol is the home of its Black Sea fleet, with 85 percent popular approval, while the eastern Ukrainian Donbass provinces of Donetsk and Lugansk, ethnically-Russian, declared independence.
Finally, after eight years of Ukrainian provocations, the death from Ukrainian shelling of more than 10,000 Donbass civilians, and the treachery of Germany and France in failing to uphold the Minsk agreements they had guaranteed, Russia entered Ukraine with its military forces in February 2022.
The conflict was on, a conflict that Russia is winning. U.S.-led sanctions against Russia failed to bring down its economy or force regime change against Putin. But each Ukrainian setback on the battlefield has been followed by more weapons and money supplied to the Volodymyr Zelensky regime by the U.S., UK, Germany, France, and other NATO members.
But who was calling the shots? In March 2022, Russian and Ukrainian negotiators reached agreement on a tentative settlement at meetings in Istanbul. UK prime minister Boris Johnson then rushed to Kiev to induce Zelensky to tear up the agreement and continue the war. Western escalation has included billions of dollars worth of heavy tanks and other weapons to Ukraine, along with cluster munitions and depleted uranium projectiles. There have been drone attacks on Russia itself and on Crimea. But the Ukrainian counteroffensive has collapsed, with speculation increasing of a major Russian counterattack, possibly even cutting Ukraine off from the Black Sea.
We have now come full circle. Warnings from Washington continue that Putin had better not go nuclear, which can be read as inviting him to do so. This is obviously a new phase of brinkmanship that could give the U.S. a pretext for themselves moving to nuclear war. Meanwhile, the U.S. understands that it could in no way challenge Russia in a conventional war even with the entire NATO alliance being activated. Even then, divisiveness within NATO and the absence of sufficient military force anywhere in Europe make this impossible at present. Veteran military analyst Scott Ritter writes in Sputnik News on September 21, 2023, that even were the U.S. to activate its entire military force stationed in Europe against Russia, it would be defeated within one to two weeks of intensive combat. The only alternative would then be to activate a gigantic airlift of additional forces into Europe with U.S. cargo planes sitting ducks for destruction en route. Impossible.
There are no signs that the U.S. is ready to concede a Russian victory involving the redrawing of the European security apparatus with Russia a respected party. The Ukrainian government speaks of a “long-term” conflict lasting decades. So there is no way to aver that the war in Ukraine is ending or to speculate about the next phase.

White House “Red Hotline” Used To Avert Nuclear War Remains Disconnected
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
A forewarning new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today first noting socialist European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen implied yesterday that Russia, rather than the United States, dropped an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima during World War II, says this repugnant lying revision of history by the unelected warmongering European Union leader known as “Queen Ursula” joined America’s most popular and trusted newsman Tucker Carlson factually observing: “If you want to know what’s true, the true things are the things you can’t say…I cannot remember the last time any one in politics was prosecuted or criticized for lying”—a factual observation followed by leftist CNN gravely revealing: “Russia, the United States and China have all built new facilities and dug new tunnels at their nuclear test sites in recent years, satellite images obtained exclusively by CNN show, at a time when tensions between the three major nuclear powers have risen to their highest in decades”.
Further raising nuclear power tensions, this report notes, was Sky News reporting: “Ukraine used British-supplied Storm Shadow missiles to strike a Russian naval base in Crimea on Friday…The air-launched cruise missiles, jointly developed by Britain and France, were delivered by London and Paris to Ukraine earlier this year”—was a socialist Western colonial powers act of war strike against Russia followed by the Ministry of Defense (MoD) reporting this morning: “From September 17 to 23, the Russian armed forces carried out 12 collective strikes using ground and air-based long-range precision weapons and drones on facilities engaged in aviation and armored vehicle repairs, oil refineries, warehouses of munitions, precision weapons and foreign-made weapons, intelligence centers and sabotage training centers, as well as accommodation centers of foreign mercenaries…The strikes inflicted significant damage upon the Ukrainian military’s supply networks in the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions”—following these crippling strikes, General Kirill Budanov of the Ukrainian Main Intelligence Directorate warningly declared: “Ukraine is looking forward to receiving the 31 Abrams M1 main battle tanks that Washington promised to provide in January…However, if the American armor is deployed on the front line and just in a combined arms fight, they will not live very long on the battlefield with Russia”—all of which follows Supreme Socialist Leader Joe Biden warning last year: “The idea that we’re going to send in offensive equipment and have planes and tanks and trains going in with American pilots and American crews, just understand, that’s called World War III”.
With American private military company mercenaries already in Ukraine to crew and service Abrams M1 main battle tanks, this report continues, the threshold warning for World War III stated by Socialist Leader Biden last year was just met by the leftist Associated Press article “Cracks In Western Wall Of Support For Ukraine Emerge As Eastern Europe And US Head Toward Elections”, wherein it observes: “Once rock-solid, the support that Ukraine has gotten from its biggest backers for its fight against Russia is showing cracks…The West has long been shoulder-to-shoulder with Ukraine against Russia…But between Ukraine’s impassioned, unending pleas for help, and huge handouts from its backers, signs of discord have emerged”—and this morning, the leftist New York Times revealed: “The pledge last March sounded as catchy as it was ambitious: European Union states would deliver a million rounds of 155-millimeter ammunition to Ukraine within a year…Now, at a critical moment in the war and with Ukraine running short of artillery shells to drive its counteroffensive, experts, weapons manufacturers and even some government officials are expressing growing doubts…Europe’s shrunken military sector, they say, may simply be unable to ramp up production fast enough to achieve the million-shell goal”.
In knowing that World War III is just one miscalculation and/or unintended consequence from igniting, this report details, European Union and NATO member leader Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced on Thursday: “We are no longer transferring any weapons to Ukraine because we are now arming ourselves with the most modern weapons”, then yesterday he warned in rage: “I want to tell President Zelenskyy never to insult Poles again, as he did recently during his speech at the United Nations”—Polish Deputy Foreign Minister Arkadiusz Mularczyk then asked the socialist Biden Regime to “cool down” the Ukrainians—instead of cooling the Ukrainians down, however, Republican Party leader House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced yesterday that he will strip funding for Ukraine out of a Pentagon spending bill—and today it was also reported: “Slowly but surely, the Mainstream Media is coming to terms with the fact that the support for the Ukrainian regime has diminished considerably in many countries – including the US…The theme became unavoidable once Poland declared that it will no longer give weapons, ammunition and equipments to Kiev”.
Following BRICS Alliance member leader Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva telling puppet leader Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky during their meeting at the United Nations yesterday: “The best way to move forward in the conflict between Kiev and Moscow is to stop the fighting and agree to a peaceful settlement”, this report notes, European Union and NATO member leader Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto grimly warned: “It’s a misperception to think that the circumstances and conditions for peace would be improving in the future…The circumstances and conditions for peace will get worse day by day…It’s easy to understand why…Every other day produces more dead people and more disappointment and more destruction”.
During the past week, this report concludes, it saw popular American political commentator Jackson Hinkle arriving in Russia so he could produce and post factual information to his widely viewed YouTube Video Channel, then yesterday he posted the message: “YouTube has suspended me for 7 days for visiting the memorial of Wagner’s Yevgeney Prigozhin”, and today he warned:
I guess Tucker Carlson has got a point when he says, “I’m willing to bet my house that Joe Biden is going to start World War Three with Russia”, because look what they’ve done.
These people are insane.
They are completely Russophobic and beating the drums of war to go to war with China.
The level of communication breakdown is so severe compared to the Cold War. I got to meet the guy that actually developed the telephone, they had the red hotline telephone between the US and the USSR during the Cold War. And he told me, “There’s nothing like that right now in the White House. There’s no communication whatsoever“.
