Will Keys,

Comedy sketch: Aliens are instructed by their high command to intervene on earth to prevent a thermo-nuclear-holocaust.  They meet the USA chain of command, Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Blinken and Austin. They then meet Putin of Russia and Xi Jinping of China.  They immediately report back to their leaders.  “No chance of a settlement. One side appears to be fermented pickled fruit, and the other side is hard boiled eggs”.

The fermented pickled fruit in the west engages in dishonest spin-doctoring in managing a crisis.  The west is restrained by dishonesty leading to diverse public opinions and decision-making is thus far more complicated.  The hard-boiled eggs have the advantage of greater control over their local media.  They do not have to compete with conflicting internal opinions because they can easily close down the opposition perspectives.   The result is that the hard-boiled eggs can be decisive and strategic.  The fruits are confused and confusing.

Oswald Spengler in his book “Decline of the West’ talks about the cyclical decline and rise of civilizations and he suggests that the west is in decline.  The type of hypocrisy that leads to decline is illustrated by the actions of US Assistant Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland. On March 8th, 2022, in a Congressional setting and in answer to Senator Mark Rubio she said: “We are working with the Ukrainians with biological research facilities, and we (Americans) are quite concerned that Russian troops are seeking to gain control of the research materials ………”  I believe that Nuland inadvertently let the cat out of the bag.

The reasoning and rationale for USA involvement with Ukraine is a matter for debate and people of good faith can disagree.  However, in my opinion, the fact that the USA now entirely ignores the Victoria Nuland testimony is double standards on a grand scale.  I cannot condone this.

Important to remember it was in 2000 when Vladimir Putin requested that Russia become a member of NATO.  He rightly believed Russia was a special case and did not want his government to have to go through the usual application process. 

Extract: “Putin said: ‘When are you going to invite us to join Nato?”  George Robertson who led NATO at the time replied: ‘Well, we don’t invite people to join NATO, they apply to join NATO.’  Putin replied, “Well, we’re not standing in line with a lot of countries that don’t matter.”   

Putin spoke to the late David Frost in a BBC interview shortly before he was first inaugurated as Russian president, more than 21 years ago.  He said he would not rule out joining NATO “if and when Russia’s views are taken into account as those of an equal partner”.  He told Frost it was hard for him to visualise NATO as an enemy. “Russia is part of the European culture. And I cannot imagine my own country in isolation from Europe and what we often call the civilised world.”

His overtures were rebuffed.  Spurned by the west, Russia was forced to consider a change of strategy.  It looked eastwards for allies and courted China and Iran.   A huge opportunity for world peace had been squandered because of the career aspirations of NATO and DC ‘swamp-dwellers’.  Had western politicians been doing what was in the interests of world peace, surely they should have been more welcoming. Putin tried to persuade western leaders that militant Islam was the common enemy both power-blocks needed to confront. With Russia in NATO, the western alliance would have been immeasurably enforced. 

In trying to better understand why this happened I consulted an expert on the subject.   Retired Professor Eric Louw is the author of the book ‘The Roots of the Pax Americana’.  He places the blame squarely at the feet of the DC swamp, the faceless but powerful federal bureaucrats who service the US Congressional representatives and the special interest groups.

Therein lie the Russian ‘experts’ in the DC swamp who are well entrenched in the State Department and the Intelligence Services.  He argues that the swamp was threatened by redundancy in the event there was a rapprochement with Moscow. The swamp needed conflict; Russia had to be provoked, how else could they keep their jobs?  Constitutionally speaking, politicians still had to ‘sign-off’ on any major decisions.  However, in a de facto sense, decision-making was reduced to the swamp level. This is the situation that must be reversed. Trump tried but failed. Like me Eric is in despair. 

Like many of us he sees the mainstream media as unfit for purpose. The recent admission by the New York Times and high ranking members of the intelligence community that the existence of the Hunter Biden laptop, containing evidence of illicit business dealings between the Biden family and the Ukrainian government, was not in fact ‘Russian disinformation’ is a case in point.

Eric observes that in modern times the outsourcing of journalism has lowered the standards to such an extent that reporting has become sloppy, unethical, self-serving and downright dishonest. As veracity has dissipated the power of the social media titans has increased exponentially.

Academia has accepted and embraced the theory of postmodernism into its educational framework.  The result is Hollywood type celebrity prognostications and a Greta Thunberg type of scientific knowledge.  An example of the power of an out of control and incompetent media, is the undermining of the USA body politic, especially of sound politicians. Many argue that the political demise of Donald J. Trump was facilitated by a 96% unfavourable media reportage.  This went on throughout his presidency by the willful dissemination of false information.  No wonder people of integrity are afraid to enter the political arena. Eric believes the Ukraine war is a manifestation of overall incompetence and over-reach.

What has the future to offer?  I refuse to discuss details of what happens during a thermonuclear conflagration.  It gives me the heebie-jeebies. 

Assuming the November 6th, USA midterm elections produce results that are dispositive enough to render the despicable Democrat Party neutered.   Then we all have a future.  Again, I will assume that the 2024 USA General Elections will return a GOP POTUS from out of the MAGA Movement; the future could be bright if bridges are repaired with Russia and China.  It will be a different world but hopefully a safer overall world.

  1. Jack Russell, stringing western negatives together is important when trying to weigh up this whole Russian/Ukranian debacle. Don’t you think all the spitting and foaming at the mouth about Russia by all the little sheep who get their news from CNN, etc is a bit odd when the US invaded Afghanistan, and Iraq, etc, illegally, causing misery to millions of people with hardly a peep from any of them, not to mention their meddling in Rhodesian affairs when we had our backs against the wall fighting for our lives? Perhaps Russia finally got fed up with the criminal and hypocritical Whitehouse circus with their ghoulish chemical weapons manufacturing facilities right on their doorstep. Also, it is important to take the Russia/Ukraine war in the context of history but few seem to do that. Right now, the Putin government is far more honest and moral than those circus clowns in the Whitehouse with their BLM, ANTIFA, transgender bulldust. “Finished and klaar?!” I don’t think so!

  2. You can string a whole lot of Western negatives together, and there are plenty of them, but nothing excuses what Putin and Russia have done in Ukraine.
    Finished and klaar.

    1. I would dare say Putin had more reason to go into Ukraine than Bush had to go into Iraq. Remember the rubbish about Saddam’s chemical weapons stockpile? Believe him or not, Putin believed a Nato aligned Ukraine posed a threat.

  3. Hello, it’s me again. Raising my head above the parapet. No doubt a torrent of abuse will follow.
    This article is a Comedy and Tragedy. Will mirroring the thoughts of Will Shakespeare.
    The comedy? Referencing Oswald Spengler’s book, “The decline of the west.” Published in 1918, author died in 1936. I mean was there a West in 1918 to drcline? Russia was lawless, Europe in the shadows of The Great War. Spanish Flu was about to wipe out millions. Or did it? Maybe Bill Gates’s grandparents were responsible for this virus.
    The Tragedy? We still have Biden bashing, and Trump lauding. I have nothing against that. Will is entitled to his opinion. But no need to harp on about it. I have always agreed with Will, MAGA. But Trump is not the man. Maybe Ted” Don’t you know who I am!”Cruz is the man. True Trump did try to drain the swamp. But he really should have done it over 2 terms. Trump takes one step forward, and two back. Instead of two forward, and one back. Just listen to him on Fox rambling on about Ukraine.

    1. Hi Annette, “torrent of abuse?” heaven forbid LOL. We would probably agree and disagree on many things. You use your brain and I admire that. May I suggest a careful reappraisal of your American brother-in-laws opinions. A critical psycho-analysis vis-a-vis your sisters influence on him LOL. I am not a clinical psychologist, but I do have tertiary understanding. Your staccato style comments are interesting but deserve a staccato style answer LOL. DJT was the man of the moment and all indications are that he will be returned. The Democrat Party and especially Hillary Clinton will get exactly what they deserve.

  4. Great insight into what is really happening today regarding the Ukraine/Russian Gog Magog​ Crisis. Did you know that Zelensky is part of the WEF/Soros Globalist plan to destroy our democracy……should be a red flag to any normal people who are paying attention….. unfortunately the Fake,​ Wokey~Cokey,​ Mickey Mouse Libtard media are part of the evil plan👹👹👹👹

    Jan Markell talks to​ Pastor Billy Crone​ for the hour.​ The world so longs for a savior that they have selected Ukraine’s Zelensky to be superman. A new song even calls him that and asks, “Can One Man Save the World?” While he may not be the Antichrist, the sentiment is there and the longing for a man with a plan to be a global miracle worker. This program brings out war facts you may not know.
    The Tribulation is rising.

    1. Hi Phil, yes, I did know that George Soros was white-anting the structural woodwork.

  5. Are you for real Will or just kidding?

    If this is meant to be a serious article you seem to have overlooked the reason why NATO was established.

    See below

    The North Atlantic Treaty Organization was created in 1949 by the United States, Canada, and several Western European nations to provide collective security against the Soviet Union. NATO was the first peacetime military alliance the United States entered into outside of the Western Hemisphere.

    1. Hi Tom, I’m for real, not kidding. I agree with what you wrote. When the communist USSR collapsed, the +/- anti-communist Russia emerged.
      What is your consternation about?

  6. Thanks Will – notwithstanding my faith in American politics is dead as a door nail I commiserate with the tragedy of this missed opportunity and some of the reasons therefore … the underlying reality is that, when it comes to realpolitik, ‘democracy’ is a flawed system because the best available talent doesn’t come to the top; whereas on the other side, it does.

    1. Hi John, unfortunately power corrupts on both sides and it doesn’t take that long to get started. I take you point.
