    Editor’s Note: In this update, Jose talks about the worsening corruption, hunger, and crime in Venezuela. It’s hard to imagine, but things are still getting worse there. As we get together to feast with our families this week, please remember the people of Venezuela, where 80% of the population does not have enough food. ~ Daisy

    I have been trying to solve a couple of issues this past week, mainly related to my parents’ health. Dad just had an event with his equilibrium (he is almost 80 so it is perfectly understandable), and he hardly could come back home in his old car. Amazingly, he did not crash or got injured in the way back. In the pictures, I have seen he is alarmingly thinner. I will send him some nutritional additions as soon as I can. I have been going through some personal and familial issues that demanded lots of attention and care and had to leave the city for some days up to work a few days in a place without any kind of coverage, not even landline, in the middle of nowhere. I survived though.

    Let’s begin.

    Why the collapse is still going on.

    Well, it is a known fact that a slow, painful collapse is definitely the worst possible scenario. Its effects are long term, the suffering it inflicts has effects on too many people, and last too much time. It affects other countries’ economies and societies, on time.

    In our example, this is exactly what is happening.  I read the report of a Venezuelan journalist, much smarter than me, where he explains the exact reason with very clever words, of why the mafia is still in power. His analysis is that the regime is not a vertical structure. Otherwise, it would have been much easier to overcome with conventional methodologies. The reason is that the structure is not like, for example, the Iraq government where Saddam controlled everything.

    In Venezuela, the power is exerted by small, powerful because they are armed and have support from traitors as internal sources) gangs that are scattered all over the country. These can be with or without uniforms. It is very likely there are foreigners with them too, not openly but in the torture/imprisonment facilities. This kind of division offers new perspectives to know where exactly the combat should start. I would dare to say that, once we understood how they operate, it should be much easier to remove them.

    Local warlords should have local interests…and local thugs to “attend” such interests, too. With some basic surveillance and taking care of the local snitches, enough information could be collected for some groups to start cooking something decent.

    Yes, I am a libertarian. This kind of love for freedom is beyond nationality. That is why the communist world fears it that much and wants to eliminate it so badly.

    But I would not like to analyze too much the political aspects this time. It is effectively covered, at least in its main aspects, in other articles.

    An update from my wife’s family

    I hadn’t written some other articles because I was waiting for my wife’s family to arrive, so I could include personal information they collected from their conversations with other travelers.

    They made the trip, and the information is outstanding. They confirmed the 18 dead by freezing story in the mountains of Colombia. Being a large family with small children, they received assistance in some of the parts of the trip, even being hosted without charge in a hotel room.

    To summarize, this is the general situation: people have to get into a large truck (regular buses are out of the game, there are no tires or spare parts) just to buy some basic staples, at incredible prices that increase every single day. The power grid is working just 4/5 hours a day in most of the country. Sending money is now increasingly difficult. The price of food is such that, even in a foreign currency like dollars, the numbers just don´t match: a dozen eggs is 9$, and one kilo of meat about 13$ depending on the area. Corn flour for our arepas is just found by the 12 kilos package. Rice and pasta, the same. If someone can live with those prices…

    Law “enforcement” is completely corrupt.

    It is quite interesting to hear what they have to say about the role of the law “enforcement” corps. They kidnapped people, asking for ransoms in foreign currency. The situation in the imprisonment facilities was…apocalyptical. Once they have collected enough money from the ransoms and what not, almost the technical stuff LEOs all of that city flee the country for good, and they are now in some place in Latin America (Colombia, perhaps?)…or even planning how to sneak up to the USA.

    Go figure.

    One of the most interesting investigators of this kind of stuff I have read these last few days analyzed very thoroughly about how the atomization and redistribution of power schemes are what has allowed the mafia to be in relative control so much time. With many small bands of thugs operating at the same time all over the country, and the LEO corps obeying just their own rules (presidential convoy was stopped recently by an armed group of intelligence corps, with the consequent aggressive attitude of the bodyguards, and this impasse conducted to the removal of their director, Gustavo Gonzalez L. from the chair. (You can google it). There is a lot of stuff happening under the sheets.

    It is quite likely that we will see lots of nasty things in the near future, as the power structures diminishes and more and more members are “purged”. Losing control for this structure means that the ruling party in the rest of the country will be those with the uniform, the badge, and the gun or the AK. And without a legal system working, that is bad. VERY bad. As it can be supposed, this will not be a happy ending for those involved. They know that the entire world is against them. They are considered (as it should be) delinquents for good people all over the world. They have stolen our gold and destroyed our capacity to generate wealth via oil production.

    Stealth mode is essential to survive in Venezuela right now.

    This said, I have suggested to my fellows to activate their stealth mode. Old clothing and shoes, avoid too clean cars, use the vehicles as little as possible…Jeez, even using dark bags in case they found some food is wise. There are plenty of stories about thugs grabbing grocery bags, sometimes even stabbing the holder, if some resistance was found.  Parking the car ready to leave the place is a need. A lot of assaults are carried on when people are getting into the vehicle. In my case, with my SUV busted, I had a backpack and perhaps my wife or one of the kids with another smaller backpack, and we got to the bike quickly. (How I miss my old motorbike!).

    I have a lot of stuff that I was going to move from our house to my parent´s place, mainly equipment like electrical tools and similar productive, useful devices that a prepper usually has in place. But nowadays, roads are so lonely and LEOs are so…predaceous, that it is not a good idea any longer. A truck loaded with stuff will be a gold mine for those thugs. That is, provided that the gangs roaming in the desert interstate roads can be avoided, which is highly unlikely.

    Rules have changed, and the very weak empire of law that once existed (the middle 70s to 90s?) is no longer present. It is not a countrywide situation, though. But now the Southern states, Amazonas and Apure are the kingdoms of the Colombian guerrilla. Thanks, Uncle Hugo!. You f—ed us well.

    There have been reports on the roads to the East of the country (Cumana city for example) where 20 or 25 people gangs stop the cars and take whatever they want. LEOs will take whatever food you happen to carry, without bothering in giving you something else than a warning that you are lucky to not be going to jail. This is something to be expected in such a situation, and it can´t be more dangerous. However, it will not develop itself from one day to another; once things start to get bad and dope starts to be scarce…the hunger will make the beast leave out. The predators will go after the easier preys first. Or whatever they believe these preys are.

    It is a hard compromise, but you can´t look helpless and unable to defend. There are a lot of psychos here that will shoot innocent people in the head just because they can, and they know that no one is going to come after them. If you could see some of the videos that have been uploaded about what the gangs are able to do…you would understand why I am so freaked out. Hands chopped. Picks used to drill someone´s head while a woman laughs as she is recording the footage. Jeez.

    If you carry, and the situation goes the wrong direction, people under such a dangerous situation, should not draw without being ready to use their piece. Once someone knows you are armed, you will become a target: a good piece is a survival tool for the thugs, a very coveted element, and finally, a prestige symbol.

    And that is the update.

    This is the updating, people. I will write some more articles, as I can interview and gather everything that my family that just arrived a couple of weeks ago is able to transmit everything while it is fresh in their memories.

    Thanks for your much-needed assistance, and your moral support! I won’t disappear again.

    I promise.

      1. What I learned a few years back from what’s happening there is to always be stocked up on toilet paper!The world may be going to hell but imagine the news if we had the net say during the black plague!

        So,while trying to be as ready as reasonable hope all here whether seeing family/friends or just taking a few days to yourself have a happy bird day!

        • Warchild, Happy Thanksgiving to you too, man. The I have to go back home this weekend {SIGH}. Time flies when you’re having fun.

          • I will think happy thoughts this Thanksgiving while I eat my 27lb. turkey and remind my children that capitalism is why we are eating such a large turkey rather than starving like Venezuela.






            • It doesn’t help Venezuela any when the foreign banks sanction them erecting economic barriers that don’t otherwise exist. Capitalism by itself is no panacea if its ripe with corruption.

          • Probably a bummer DR, leaving Georgia and heading back to Memphis. Take care ‘Ol Boy.

            • Some thanksgiving reading:

              ht tps://www.naturalnews.com/2018-11-22-five-truths-about-the-people-you-encounter-over-thanksgiving.html

              • Great article. Sent it to my son who will enjoy it immensely as will his father-in-law.

          • I’ve mentioned many times on this site that in SHTF, there will be grocery cart hijackings. When you get your groceries, your cart gets hijacked in the parking lot as you walk to your car. So start staying in the store with your cart, until you partner pulls the car up by the door to load. No more going grocery shopping alone. Travel in pairs with the passenger riding shotgun literally.

            And when you arrive at a Grocery store and walking in, put your cell phone in your pocket and your hand on your guy, ready to pull it if necessary. People know you are going into the store with money. Situational awareness, and scan the entire parking lot for possible threats, and watch the loiterers out in the parking lot, watching people instead of their own business. Only grocery shop in the day time. Never at night.

            • Damn man you better shop at a different store. If that shit happened around here there would be about 5 or 6 men jumping on the criminal. Besides the tons of CCW holders around here too. Black Friday doesn’t mean the 10 or so naggers here are going to cause shit lol.

              • Florida is quickly becoming the new Kellyfornia..

      2. How much money has this fake Jose con artist swindled from naive people with his bullshit stories and paypal.me scam?

        • Infidel, It is a strong possibility you are 100% right on scam. With that said the story line is believable just can’t say for sure. If, the story line is followed and understood by a few, just maybe it will inspire readers here to consider the need to prep. Thanks for the heads up, I’m new to this site and have not followed Jose’s past posts.

        • What makes you think Jose is a fake?

        • Fake?

        • That asshole isn’t even in Venezuela.

        • I agree Infidel! I wrote response earlier, but I guess I made the writer look bad, because it did not show in the comments? LOL! Let’s see if this does? He’s is a liberal con! Educated at one of our fine liberal colleges we have? As I stated before my 10 year grandson could write I more believable story! Let’s see if this shows in comments?? LOL!!!

      3. Pay attention America, this is what the demoncrats have planned for us!

      4. What makes you think Jose is fake?

        • The way he writes? Very simple. I have a 10 year old grandson that is homeschooled because my daughter that’s a teacher, stop teaching and is homeschooling because she don’t want her children taught the liberal trash in public school! It is amazing how much he knows, compared to the average 10 year old? He could write a more believable story. Not saying he not from Venezuela? But if he was really worried about his family there he would be getting them out. And not writing bull stories to get money? If it’s really as bad has he says, and I know it’s bad! But wouldn’t he be worried about writing about it, and marking his family for one of those kidnappings he writes about? Read between the lines? He says Stealth mode is the way to survive now? ?? THATS RICH!!? Sounds like he playing the socialist to the tee. I need you give?

        • He is a cholo vlogging from Los Angeles.

          • I have folowed Jose for some time.He is legit. I’m glad he finally escaped from Venezuela.

      5. that’s on its way to the usa.

        see all those caravans and all those in the bag with their leaders judges willing to do anything to get them in.

        I’d say it’s within 5 years of cities like Houston and los angeles becoming more dangerous than Chicago and eventually everywhere is like that except maybe places like montana

        • Did you see the blue voters in Montana last election? Montana is not safe either.

          • We are not stuck with them. THEY are stuck with us.

          • (((who))) counted the votes?

        • Happy ThanksGiving.

          RIP- Mr. Gobbler AKA Thomas Turkey
          We thank you for your Service and Sacrifice.

      6. If any portion of his story is true, look out. It’s headed here, and the libtards in this country will allow them in, in the end. Like most of us on this site, I’m ready. Bring it.

      7. I do feel for the children suffering in Venezuela! SOCIALISTS pray on weak minded people,and the youth? The youth want all the free stuff, and equality. What a line of bull? There is nothing fair no equality, and nothing free in this world! Thats just the way it is, and has always been!! The world is a hard place! Teach your children to get off their ass and WORK, and take PRIDE in their work and THEMSELVES? And I’m with you Infidel. This dude it setting somewhere drinking good whiskey, trying to write like someone from a 3 world country, and laughing at the money people are sending in?!! Probably someone that got his education at one of our fine mind altering liberal colleges? They wanted socialism? Deal with it!! Don’t expect me to take from me and mine to pay for it! HELL its coming here fast enough? PREPARE for the worst, and HOPE and PRAY for the best! GOD help us all!!

      8. Guns, ammo, knowledge and the mindset of a jackal,

        • Nail,agree except am going with mindset of a rabid fisher cat.

        • Guns, ammo, knowledge and the mindset of a jackal

          That is the exact opposite of the Democratic party platform.
          Ban guns, ban ammo, conform and obey.

          • They also seem to ban intelligence.

        • Yes indeedy!!

      9. Jose raises two interesting points;(1) Police are/will be the biggest criminals when SHTF and (2) Gangs are/become systemic and are an enforcement arm of the politicians.

        The police operate under the protection of the courts and the system and therefore are impossible to resist; except for the ultimate resistance.

        I remember a story about a Jeweler/Pawn Store owner that lived in a bad area of L.A. He holds the record for being in the most gun fights. Well finally a gang member tried to rob him and he shot and killed the man. After that they kept coming after him until he had to move and disappear.

        Both of these groups will present serious threats to any prepper.

      10. The people need a leader to organize them into a fighting force Then take back the country

        • Anybody that cares has already left Venezuela.

      11. When I first got trained to get my concealed carry, I was always told that you can’t just bring out a weapon just to threaten someone. It’s called brandishing or something, and they emphasized that it’s illegal. (They also said not to do stupid shit like writing “one shot, one kill” or putting the punisher symbol on your weapon. Apparently, scumbag lawyers use that against you).

        So being a diligent student, I asked “So if I bring out my weapon, be prepared to open fire?”

        To which I was told, “Yes. And don’t stop firing until all threats are neutralized”.

        From the sound of the situation described above, it sounds like the proper response will be to kill them all. Because otherwise the survivors will tell their cronies and fellow gangsters, and they’ll come back to take your weapon.

        Or, am I reading this wrong?

        • Sammy,
          I was taught the same thing, If you need to pull out your weapon you have to use it, and stop the threat, anything less is brandishing and you will be prosecuted. No warning shots, no “halt or I’ll shoot”, We are not cops, we are in fear for our or others safety. If you aren’t prepared to shoot to stop, don’t pull the gun out.

          • Hey rellik,

            The difference between me and that Zimmerman fellow who shot and killed that “Trayvon” piece of shit is that

            A) I’d never carry a 380 — hell I ain’t King Kong but even I can handle a 9mm


            B) I wouldn’t be firing a single shot and hoping for the best

            If I EVER have to pull out a firearm, there will be multiple rounds fired. I ain’t no Rambo, and was in absolute fear for my life. Plus I worried that the criminals trying to hurt me would steal my wallet, find out where I lived and then go there and hurt or even kill my wife and kids. And that’s why I shot them a dozen times officer

        • It’s called brandishing or something

          I call it “shut the fuck up or i’ll will shoot your ass!”

          • Ha ha brandishing a gun. A little story…. when I was sparking a gal who became my wife, one day we were leaving her house and heading back to mine. At the time I was 18 and just out of high school driving a ’70 volkswagon beetle. Up ahead of me I saw a car of what were teenage kids, attempting to run another car (of elderly folks off the road for whatever reason I cannot to this day comprehend. I came up ‘long side of the teenagers car and then swerved over to the shoulder and went around the two vehicles. Feeling I was avoiding what was ever their problem, the car with the other teenagers came along side of me after I got back in the slow lane and they came up on the shoulder and threw a bottle and struck my car. At that time the driver rolled down the window and began to curse me. My wife/girlfriend was terrified at which point the other car was still broadside to me and I told my wife to put her seat back all the way. I then reached in my glove compartment and pulled out a .38 snubby and pointed it right at the driver. He then apparently found the gas pedal and slammed it to the floor and it was over. My wife and I still laugh about that day. Truth be known I have brandished a firearm on at least three other occasions without firing a shot. Like I always say sometimes reading form the book works but sometimes just have to show them the pictures.

        • To which I was told, “Yes. And don’t stop firing until all threats are neutralized.

          And go ahead an rob the fucker while your at it. He won’t miss it, he’s dead.

          • Hell yeah no sense leaving it there it ain’t doing them any good.

          • you want to take all of his fake money?

        • Ben Hansen • 3 years ago

          Hi Luke. I’m usually 100% on board with your articles and I’m not necessarily disagreeing with you on this one. I think maybe the title and explanation could use a little clarification however. I’ve been teaching the California, UT, AZ, FL, CCWs for many years and as you know, most states do allow for a legal form of brandishing. Utah’s law states that it can be done if the person reasonably believes the action to be necessary in compliance with Section 76-2-402 (Use of force) with the purpose to prevent another’s use of unlawful force. California’s law states that brandishing may be done if the person reasonably believes you or another person is to suffer imminent harm, and you fight back with no more force than is reasonably necessary to defend against that danger.

          While I absolutely agree with you that the law requires that it never be done in a fight or quarrel unless you’ve done everything reasonable to de-escalate, I wouldn’t say that it should “never” be done. I always tell me students that it’s a dangerous game to play because once you introduce the gun into the conversation, the attacker can try and call your bluff and you have to be willing to use it if the situation escalates. Then you have all the concerns of witnesses misunderstanding the threat like you have mentioned.

          Where some instructors get into trouble- and I’m not suggesting this is what you meant- is when they tell students that the gun should never come unholstered until they’ve decided to shoot. I always include drills where we clear the shirt to access or even draw from the holster, but don’t shoot. I don’t want it ingrained within them to shoot every time the gun is gripped or drawn. For example, a man with a machete is yelling at me from across the street, starting to walk toward me, and saying he’s going to chop me up. He’s about 35 feet away and outside of the “21-foot rule”. Although not a hard and fast rule, many would argue that the threat isn’t imminent enough yet to justify pulling the trigger. You better believe however that I’m going to draw my firearm in a “defensive display” and give the attacker demands as I back up and look for cover and/or an escape route. This of course would be considered brandishing, but in a legal manner. I can also envision a situation where a woman is walking late at night and alone through a parking lot to her car. She notices that she’s being followed by a shady character and there’s no reasonable explanation why this person is following her (i.e. there’s no other cars in the lot, it’s not a shortcut to anywhere, etc.). She first makes eye contact to let him know she’s not an easy target, then tries to engage in conversation by asking if he’s lost. He keeps coming straight toward her, picking us his pace. She finds her vehicle or a cement pillar to place between them and she walks a circle around it, but he obviously and deliberately follows her move. I would first recommend a less-lethal option like a Taser. If she doesn’t have one however, she then accesses the gun compartment of her purse and places her hand on the gun. At this point, she’s getting behind the time curve as he tries to close the distance between them. She greatly fears she’s about to become a victim of a forcible felony or is about to suffer serious bodily injury because of a size and strength disparity. She can yell at him forcefully to get back. If this doesn’t work however, it’s reasonable to assume in her situation that anyone who continues an advance is about to commit a serious crime. This is a good example of when informing the attacker that she has a gun and/or displaying it is the last best option short of actually firing the gun in self-defense. Shooting an unarmed attacker can be a very difficult decision, but the decision should quickly become clear once the gun is displayed or the attacker is informed she has one. The ball is in his court. If the situation escalates and he continues the approach instead of turning and running, then she must be willing to use the gun. Like you had mentioned, all other options have been exhausted and a person must first be justified in presenting the gun in the first place.

          While I don’t have exact stats, it’s understood that a good portion of such dangerous conflicts are avoided just by the presence of the gun. While I believe the main thrust and intent of your article was regarding those wanting to engage in fighting, I just wanted to insert my opinion that in certain situations, brandishing against an armed or even an unarmed attacker can be an effective and legal manner to avoid a lethal conflict, just short of pulling the trigger. I would also always call the police right after. In California, many sheriffs require the CCW holder to inform them of an incident where they draw their weapon. Some criminals have the audacity to even call the police on the victim after a botched attack to report a brandishing. It’s always a good idea to let the police know right away so they can establish who the true victim is. Thanks for your great articles Luke. I share them a lot with my students.


      12. Wish, hope, pray that an event, so catastrophic, never occurs dissolving the US into anarchy. The greatest fear will likely not be the masses as they can be scared away from doing you harm but rather the government forces without a government to control them. Having access to virtually unlimited weaponry, organization and self justified with a very thin and decreasing veneer of law that is in actuality color of law they’ll be a gang to be feared. Historically most citizens under such rule become subjects with the spell cast of the Stockholm Syndrome.

        ‘Who protects us from our protectors”?

        • The problem is that it is not happening quickly enough in Venezuela.

          There has to be a TOTAL collapse, not just part of collapse.

          Because this is like a slow death, the evil dictator can stay in power. If this was happening more quickly, Madureo would be out already.

        • In my neck of the woods
          there are about 430 people
          for every sworn cop.
          Anecdotally, I figure 4 out of 6
          of my neighbors are armed.
          Even though we have universal
          gun registration I doubt that
          we have a 10% compliance rate.
          I doubt that Venezuela like conditions will
          occur in rural Hawaii. More likely we will
          break from the Tyrants in Oahu and
          let them stew in their own sh it.

          • rellik

            Certainly rural are better than suburbs which are better than cities. Regardless the former “Guardians Of The Law” are likely to become its chief abuser in the absence of valid governmental control.

            “More likely we will break from the Tyrants….”

            I suspect that the US would fragment and hope that you are in a good one. The West being generally more self reliant and traditional also has for the most part a low population and significant food and energy. It’ll be the place to be in the lower 48.

          • That is indeed comforting to know, especially since Hawaii is supposed to be a “blue” state, just like Connecticut, where they demanded folks turn over their “assault” rifles… from what I hear, they got some pretty low compliance there as well.

            I think that we should begin actively going beyond simple non-compliance though by creating what should be called freedom zones… of course, feel free to rename them to your liking.

            “Freedom zones”? Huh?

            Ok, so hear me out: the libturds on college campuses have “safe spaces”, and the traitors who wanna shelter illegals have “sanctuaries”. I say we have freedom zones (“free zones”), where any and all unconstitutional gun laws are simply not enforced. We work to elect local sheriffs who won’t enforce them and city and town council members who pass ordinances nullifying them. We train potential jurors to nullify any prosecution of folks who are not criminals but are simply standing up for their constitutional rights. We also compile lists of everyone in any kind of position of power who are for us, as well as those who are against us. “Dox” that latter category so that every true patriot knows who they are where they live where they work and everything they do.

            The “sanctuary” assholes can keep their shitty illegals and the snowflakes can keep their precious safe spaces. We will keep our means of self defense

      13. Low-IQ morons on forced Marxism.

        Things are obviously going according to plan.

        BTW – what is needed at our borders are armed drones, programmed to shoot-to-kill.

      14. The cronies are the CIA backed opposition. Mostly Columbian. The CIA is putting a NATO base in neighboring Columbia. Both Obama and Trump have turned the wick up on economic warfare. “Humanitarian assistance” doncha know.

        Those “gangs” Jose hears about are CIA funded. Socialism has little to do with Venezuela’s predicament. I say predicament because the US wants their oil and there is little they can do about it.

        Read “The Confessions of an Economic Hitman” or “War is a Racket” for insight on US foreign policy in the Americas for the last hundred years or so.

        Mr Jose can continue to blame others but the culprits operate from the District of Columbia.

        Good luck with your plans.

          Read them both and you’re correct. Read “Trading With The Enemy” too.

          Anyone who believes the official story on anything is either naive or ignorant.

      15. Non- topic: The u.s. military CAN be used to protect the border because the posse Comitus act of 1878 only refers to restricting use of the military “within the country”. They are deployed at an INTERNATIONAL BORDER and the Supreme Court has already ruled that laws are different concerning that. I don’t remember what the case was offhand. So,Trump may now tell the libturd judges and news media to go pound sand.

        • Yeah that’s why they set up immigration checkpoints a 100 miles in because it is a big boarder area.. ha.

          I got no problem the US Military being deployed to the Mexican border. Put some tanks out there and start wasting the invaders who cross illegally. I bet the US military has deployed drones, and supporting logistics.

      16. OK folks,tis almost time for a Warchild holiday tradition,so get your popcorn and beverages of choice!Soon the Black Friday videos coming out.I love to be comfy in me home watching folks in some cases literally killing others to get 20 bucks off a overpriced tv set!

        Let the holiday season insanity begin!

        • I have some vinyl cued up ready to go. What beverage goes with Thick as a Brick?

          • Southern Comfort

          • JRS,any beverage goes well with TAAB or any classic Tull!

            Yahoo,have not has Southern Comfort in a few decades but would work for me!

      17. In the scheme of American national policy makers Venezuela matters little. With few exceptions, the entire history of Latin American countries has been one of continual revolutions, going back and forth from dictatorships to democracy to juntas to narco states, etc., and economic / financial collapses, and constant social upheavel. The gov’t.s of L / A are not only corrupt, they cannot even function without corruption. American policy makers and officialdom accept all that, even going so far as to accept their surplus populations migrating into the US. The fact is, all this news about Venezuela is only used as an item to serve as a distraction to the American people.
        The real news, which TPTB and their politician minions really don’t want the American people to know the truth of anything about Russia. Whether its the Russia / China strategic alliance, or the Russians not letting Syria collapse into Muslim fanatics hands, or the Russian / Chinese as economic partners outside of American control or influence. This business about Russian interfering with the general election causing Pres. DT to be elected is pure rubbish. The reason why we are not given truthful news about about Russia is because TPTB want to propagandize us to believe Russia is the enemy. TPTB and the various neo-con organizations hate Russia for a variety of reasons; Russia won’t roll over for them and submit to them, the don’t need the dollar as an medium of exchange, they refuse to join the West in committing cultural and racial suicide, and that Russia is rapidly re-Christianizing. TPTB and the neo-cons hate Christianity. They don’t like that the Russian (and now Eastern Europeans) don’t want their nations over-ran with 3rd world hordes, or their cultures and gene pool destroyed.
        The ultimate goal of the “elites” is a borderless world, a world without Christianity, and a thoroughly mixed/diluted white race. The “elites want a world where their hegemony is unchallenged; therefore, they must “neutralize” advanced or strong societies. Russia knows exactly what they are up to and won’t submit. They have more than sufficient power to resist and TPTB cannot do anything about it. You will see propaganda get really ramped up in the MSM, you will see them get desperate and try to contrive reasons to go to war, to maneuver the US into a war with Russia. This is a reason why TPTB hate Pres. DT, he wants normal relations with these other countries. These ‘”elites” want to run the world, and need American power and resources to do it under the guise of “Americanism”. They are more than willing to throw away massive numbers of Amer. lives for their own goals.
        Frankly, don’t believe anything you hear from the MSM, officialdom, etc. It is nothing more than propaganda. They want to manipulate your belief and opinions.

      18. People are looking to the wrong analogies to understand what is happening in these countries. Whereas a dictator, such as Sadaam, is a top-down control system, what we see now in The Ukraine, Venezuela etc. is more like feudal times. Local warlords exert local power and make alliances with others to facilitate their criminal activities and make money. Muslim extremists work this way.

        The only way to understand what is going on is to do the hard work of understanding the alliances, key figures and who they make connections with. A spider’s web.

        Ukraine is now a gangster’s paradise and a key place for making money in the crime world. The UK is another place that is more and more coming under control of international crime gangs. Gangsters are taking over government agencies all over the place and have their fingers in tight at the United Nations. That’s the biggest problem for the 21st century.

      19. “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” ― attributed Margaret Thatcher

        People have failed to grasp the difference between paying-up and paying-down.



        These regimists had never technically ran out of the other people’s money, yet.

        Maduro, his cronies, and some of your own contemporaries, are probably, pretty secure. (Corrupt.)

      20. “It is a hard compromise, but you can´t look helpless and unable to defend.”

        What I think of when I read this are the males who like to wear their hair pink and hate on men in general, the ones who use phrases such as “toxic masculinity,” the ones who dress like they are in fantasy-land.

        They will not survive what is coming.

      21. Read “Robes” by Penny Kelly to see how this was all predicted and what the future holds. It may seem a bit airy fairy, but she had her spiritual experiences she describes in the books in the early 80s, wrote about it in 1999, and it is absolutely effing crazy how much in that book that the “Robes” showed her has already happened. It’s some crazy reading.

      22. People get the government they deserve. If you elect Marxist devils then you get what you deserve. No sympathy from me.
