Righteous Russia - Part 3
The Beast, Surrounded
I’ve been clear from the outset of this feature series that I do not aim to present you with the truth.
But, I see no better time to hunt for lies than when in the midst of the fog of war. While our could-be brothers currently forge through choking smoke, cinder-lit ash and stinging dust in a real (if dramatized) theater while engaging (some) entrenched enemy in the midst of the cabalistic hive that is Prussian Ukraine, we attempt to peer through the fog of the information war many of us have been wading through for years.
I thought of waiting to compose this piece until the dust—both real and imagined—settled from Putin’s ‘invasion’ of ‘Ukraine,’ but in keeping with my goal of focusing on the macro narratives as opposed to the micro, I thought it best to forge ahead with the near-term in the third part of our Righteous Russia series before considering the slightly longer-term in Part 4.
As for how to describe the near-term, coming fallout of the latest crisis bombarding the increasingly irrelevant MSM airwaves and the increasingly echoing Big Social Tweetwaves, replete with all manner of repurposed videogame cinematics, stock photos, oh, and the occasional real piece of contextless chaos, I have a simple and utterly confident conclusion.
The beast is surrounded.
I have seen the theories on bioweapon labs, and I find them compelling, though inconclusive. I have, like many better researchers before me, dug into the tangled web of financial ties between the globalist elite and the remnants of Poroshenko’s (Obama’s,) yellow and blue hub of laundering, and I find it more than relevant. I am aware of the reputations of some of Ukraine’s most notorious paramilitary and policing organizations and allusions to former socialist collectives they parallel.
But, no matter how hugely important each connection and each link in the chain looks and feels, each is but a micro connecting a vast macro.
To understand the macro of a given situation, you need to zoom out, and focus on the noise. Most of us in the Truth community have taught ourselves to filter out the noise. That gnawing, buzzing and directed chaos that so many of our fellows have succumbed to, telling them who to mourn and who to hate, and sometimes conflating and confusing the two on a near-daily basis.
I’m not telling you to do what the talking heads, the selected geopolitical elite and the spotlighted experts tell you amidst breathless reports and strongly-worded, gravely serious addresses issued from their mechanized and teleprompted hearts. I’m not telling you to feel what they tell you to feel.
I’m telling you to listen to what they’re saying. To visualize their slings and arrows, and to look unto their target. Then I want you to examine what you know of the wielder. What you know of the disinformational collective we know as the Mainstream Media, and I want you to consider what you do NOT know about their target—that being Russia and, by extension, Vladimir Putin.
And I want you to slap yourself silly if you ever considered the possibility that they might be telling you the truth.
I do not know the details of what will come of his actions in Ukraine. I do not know his missions. I don’t know if all or any of the conflict figures emerging from the conflict zone are real or invented.
But what I do feel is that, by the end of his campaign in the region, Putin will have played his part in encircling a beast that was run ragged by forces beyond its understanding, and that had lost the war long before it found itself trapped in a ravine at the edge of the world, surrounded by righteous wolves and desperate to use tooth and claw to turn back a tide that, once called, cannot be rescinded.
I do not know how long the beast—the Deep State, the Cabal, or any number of other names attributed to that vast and shrinking intercontinental, corruptible collective—will fight, but the game is set. The war is over, because Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin won it in conference rooms we’ll never see amidst war games we’ll never play recorded in transcripts we’ll never read long before they issued their first orders to bring said victory about.
If the Mainstream Media is the screaming, blubbering mouth of the Deep State incarnate, do they seem okay to you as events unfold beyond their full understanding or control? While it may be frustrating for us to sit on the sidelines and try to piece narratives together through a constantly-shifting haze of disinformation and honest guesswork—and the occasional real bit of raw truth that slips through unmolested—I can guarantee you we’re having a better week, month and year than the globalist enemies of the united patriots of the United States and Russia.
In short, the Deep State is in hysterics, which tells you quite all it needs to about where we stand in the great game.
In previous entries in this series, I have made it clear that I believe Putin is working with patriots in the west to reforge some semblance of a world of sovereigns. I believe Putin is currently playing a very real villain to Globalist interests and a very fake—albeit compelling—“heel” to Trump’s returning “face” as we look ahead to the next—and possibly final—phase of their grand alliance.
But that’s the story for Part 4.
For now, let’s consider the possibility that Putin—and by extension, Russia—is truly an independent and utterly selfish actor in current events. The point remains the same. The prey of Putin and Russia has been revealed, and that prey is the same one that played would-be predator to Trump during and even before his first term as President of the United States.
The very same Globalist interests that aligned to paint Trump and his Deplorables as one ever-shrinking shade away from literal Nazis harbored the real thing in the very cities that are currently seeing the shadows of Russian paratroopers descend on them with ruthless efficiency.
Call that happenstance, if you will, but at least call it fortunate.
As I have said before, others in this community have done an incredible job sussing out the details, especially the ‘Who’ and the ‘How’ of the Deeply Entrenched State. Right now, I’m fascinated by the ‘What’ Putin and Trump seem to be aligning against. Not a nation. Not even a collection of nations. But an idea.
Communism dressed as Globalism. It’s not revolutionary to describe them as such, and those of us who have gone down the darkest paths know there is much more to their ideology than corrupt collectivism, but if that is to be our surface designation, it serves as a focal point to align against, and, I don’t know if you’ve been paying attention, but things don’t seem to be going very well for this ideology—or for its wielders and defenders—these days.
For many, China represents this Communist ideology most plainly. While I understand the reaction, I’ve never found China to be a compelling actor in international affairs. Sure, they have controlling financial interests in every market in the world, but as a sovereign actor with a largely phantom global military force, one that has never been mobilized in a serious modern conflict against another power, I remain skeptical.
Now, if we must make an attempt at designating a ‘Who’ in the current circumstances …
Aside from would-be elite individuals occupying positions of power in nearly every nation on the planet, what collective fits this modern, barely disguised Communist Manifest Destiny best, and is therefore the biggest loser in Russia’s current push into the heart of Communist corruption?
None other than the European Union and its Globalist philosophy farm, the World Economic Forum.
The EU is the collectivist head of the serpent, and the EU—largely represented by the actions and inactions of Berlin—is currently stunned and humiliated by Putin’s bold, unflinching aggression against its interests.
The grand response to Russia’s shrugging off of red line rhetoric issued by Berlin, London, Paris, Brussels and everyone else within that grudging blue and star-speckled canvas, along with their feckless and tyrannical cheerleader in Soviet Red Canada.
Sanctions. As toothless as the mouths that dictated them and as leaky as the pens that will write them into ledgers that will only bleed red with the economic impact they have on their own peoples, further turning the Beast’s own guarded sheep against it while the wolves harry it from the gate.
Putin’s direct aggression has exposed the EU and NATO as toothless and petty tyrants unworthy of respect from those who feared them and unworthy of support from those who trusted them.
The world as a collective may not quite know who Vladimir Putin is and what Russia stands for, but through him, they have seen the face of avarice and cowardice incarnate in their own quaking, trembling or utterly silent governments.
Not only has Russia’s thorough and utterly stunning blitz caught the corporate press by surprise, it has served as a stark and sobering reminder to the collective unconscious of the citizens of the world—and a not so subtle direct proof to its enemies in NATO—that the United States is the only true threat to the bristling Russian Empire on a military level. In short, even if the EU had teeth, Russia’s are bigger, and far sharper.
Additionally, the Nord Stream 2 conundrum has been laid bare for the world to see Germany’s latest humiliation. A world superpower threatening sanctions on Russian energy, thereby threatening sanctions on 80% of its own energy supply. Germany is threatening itself when it threatens Russia, and Russia has let the world know this in no uncertain terms.
But Berlin and the EU are not the only one with egg on their face in light of Russia’s advance. Biden has only begun to receive his share of the blowback. Perhaps it takes that much longer to travel across the Atlantic.
If Americans have balked at the prospect of gas surpassing $4.50, what happens if and when they’re staring at $10 at the pump, and are reminded by a less silent by the day majority of Trump voters that the man currently occupying the White House (or the set they seem to use in its stead with worrying frequency) shut down the Keystone Pipeline shortly after taking office, thereby arming our supposed enemy with a nifty economic nuke in the process.
If American energy prices don’t rise to historic levels in the near term, we will have Russia to thank. If they do, we will have Biden to thank.
Putin rightly respects American might. He just knows—as we know—that Biden’s hands would be tied by sociopolitical circumstances (poor polling, bipartisan antiwar sentiment, mistrust of corporate media and government following two years of unconstitutional COVID lockdowns and medical tyranny in the wake of the most controversial election in world history,) even if they weren’t tied more literally by the operational realities of Devolution.
In short, I find it close to impossible to fathom that all of this could take place without the direct sign-off, or at the very least tacit acceptance of Trump and the U.S. Combatant Commanders. And Putin is a smarter man than I.
Here, we see just a few of the many vice grips the enemy is caught in. Issue empty sanctions and Putin wins. Issue biting sanctions and Putin wins. Retract in the face of the advancing Tiger, and he will have the measure of you.
But then, I think we all know he has taken the measure of them. I think he has been taking the measure of them for a long while. He just needed the right pieces on the board (and the right pieces temporarily and willingly off the board) to make his move.
Putin said he wants to show the world “true” decommunization, and to prove it, he just stole their collective treasure out from under their noses, and in the open field. Or did you think the Biden’s were the only world players with their hands in the Ukrainian cookie jar?
Russia’s actions demonstrate that they have long seen through the façade Prussia dressed itself in. When the corporate mouthpieces of the Deep State—and their political celebrities from the Obama’s and Clinton’s to the Romney’s, Trudeau’s, Macron’s and Johnson’s—discuss the threat to “their Democracy” with increasingly desperate fervor, they’re not lying.
“Their” democracy is in danger, and sovereignty will bring it down.
The beast is surrounded, and it’s starting to act as if it is. The beast’s only tool is subversion. Its only weapon is psychological, and yet the Tiger advances, degree by steady, aching degree while the eagle soars overhead, just out of sight but coming closer with every pass.
The beast’s previous tactic when being hunted by two predators at once was to get them to fight each other. But the Eagle and the Tiger have not taken the bait the beast has laid out for them. In their decades of circling the den of the Deep State, they have grown familiar with one another. As Trump so recently stated, they have come to understand one another, perhaps better than anyone.
The beast is surrounded, and there’s a killing mood in the winter air. America is born of a righteous will and will return with a righteous fury. But Russia remembers all the ill that has been brought against Her people. Perhaps Russia’s fury is the one the enemy should have feared the most.
If I have made a compelling enough case that the current situation does not benefit our enemies in any way, and in fact puts them in dire straights in these strange and storied times, I’d like to begin my inhalation for the piece of the puzzle I’m most confident in, and most excited to write, when we look to Part 4.
Therein, we will attempt to leave hypotheticals to the side and offer something concrete. Therein, we will project the closing chapters of this grand opera of Righteous Russia by looking at how President Donald J. Trump and his knights fit into this path of the righteous, and I’ll take my stab at presenting, in broad strokes, how the story of Righteous Russia ends.
