An Unusual Perspective
I meant for this post to be pretty short, but its length quickly spiralled out of control – necessary, unfortunately, to cover all the angles presented herein. This Substack is supposed to be shorter form content; maybe for the next post!
Read on for an argument that the Russia/Ukraine war is fake (although the death and destruction is real) and controlled on both sides from forces above the putative national leaders supposedly fighting it.
The current state of affairs and lay of the land
Let’s start with the head of paramilitary org Wagner Yevgeny Prigozhin, who recently issued pointed, angry comments that Wagner, which is spearheading the assault on Bakhmut, will have to withdraw from the city imminently. According to Prigozhin, the Russian Ministry of Defence is deliberately undermining the war effort by supplying only 10% of the shells Wagner needs to take the city, which is also dramatically under-manned (per military doctrine, offensive forces need a 3:1 manpower advantage to assault reinforced defensive positions, and the attackers have 1:1 or less); that nearby Russian military units are also being deliberately sabotaged and undersupplied, and unverified reports that the long-rumoured, long-delayed Ukrainian offensive is now beginning.
There’s been a year worth of chatter whether Russia will win the war and whether Russia is utilizing 4–D chess (as argued by Scott Ritter, MacGregor, Gonzalo Lira, The Saker, Andrei Martyanov (links provided with just a few of their many failed predictions), along with Russians with Attitude, Geroman, Zoka_200, War Monitor — whose combined track record is abysmal) or whether Ukraine will win with Western/NATO support (as argued by the Western media, the despicable neo–con outfit Institute for the Study of War, Michael Koffman, Rob Lee, U.S. Congress, the Department of Defence, Joint Chiefs of Staff).
Rolo Slavsky has been the only English language blogger arguing that Russian elite are deliberately sabotaging their war effort, although he believes it is due to the elite’s greed, incompetence and desire to stay in power, not as part of a broader scheme; and then there’s infamous doomer Igor Girkin/Strelkov on the Russian-language side – the first, loudest and most persistent critic of Russia’s war efforts.
The fog of war is really thick and propaganda abounds during war; from the outside it is extraordinarily difficult to separate fact from fiction.
Russia isn’t fighting the war very hard despite lots of death and destruction
There are some curious data points. Let’s go through some of them:
- Russia has been and continues to provide up to 40% of the fuel used by the Ukrainian army via Bulgaria.
- Large quantities of Russian oil and gas is still flowing through Ukraine to Europe.
- Russia has refused to destroy the Dniper bridges or key transportation hubs that Ukraine uses to supply its forces, despite them being among the highest value targets in a war, and the war is well over a year old now.
- Russia has refused to mobilize its economy for a war footing.
- Strelkov has offered an in–depth, razor–sharp list of dozens of questions for the government regarding either Russia’s inept or undermined performance during this war and in its lead-up. There have been no answers.
- Russia has not retaliated for the Ukrainian/Western assassinations against Alexander Dugin’s daughter or a number of other prominent non-governmental Russian patriots, and has deliberately avoided attacking the Ukrainian leadership.
- Russia has ignored enforcing many of its publicly proclaimed ―red lines‖ that were subsequently breached including the Ukrainian attacks on the Crimea Bridge, attacks within Russia proper, America’s blowing–up of Nordstream 2, or even the drone attack on the Kremlin.
Outside of the war itself, there are plenty of curious data points questioning the independence of the Russian leadership vis-a-vis globohomo itself:
- Putin has a World Economic Forum puppet as the head of the Russian Central Bank, re-nominating her after she sent $300-400 billion dollars abroad to get seized by the West.
- Russia continued investing multiple billions in the U.S. every month after the war started, without respite.
- According to blogger Stanley Sheppard, Russia’s central bank is privately owned by foreign parties who determine whether to expand or shrink its economy:
―Exactly the right definition…”Washington consensus”. The term was coined not that long ago, back in 1989, and essentially means how finances of the third world countries should be managed. Initially it applied to South America, but as Soviet Union was dissolved, Russia was given the status like that of Brazil or Argentina.
The consensus consists of the three core principles – manage population using Darwinian principles, tightly control money supply primarily by the means of high interest rates, do everything possible to prevent internal investments in the manufacturing sector or anything else working to develop own economy and to create a favourable internal investment climate. The extent to which this consensus is applied to countries varies – Russia gets one of the harshest treatments. Now the bigger question is, how and why Russian fiscal authorities during the all out proxy war are still compliant with imposed rules?
This drives many people to conclusion that perhaps this is not a real war between Russia and the West, but a make believe conflict at the expense of Ukraine designed to achieve totally different goals vs. those pronounced by Putin last February.‖
- Putin was and remains on board with implementing globohomo COVID–19 mask and vaccine mandates and vaccine passports. See here for detailed coverage. Putin is hard at work advancing central bank digital currencies.
- Putin’s initial rise within Russia was due to his support of the West and his willingness to let them pillage Russia. He severely undermined the pro-Russian populists in the Donbass and elsewhere in East Ukraine after the Maiden Revolution, offering little to no support, betraying pro-Russian patriots (see Strelkov’s comments) and the Russian Federal Security Services (FSS) likely assassinated a large number of Donbass leaders.
- What Putin and the Russian oligarchs fear the most, just like western leaders, is their own populists, far more than external enemies; they don’t want anyone to end their personal fiefdoms and grifts.
- In a 2017 interview, Klaus Schwab said that Russian President Vladimir Putin had been recognized as a Young Global Leader, and also mentioned Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau: “I have to say, when I mention now names, like Mrs. (Angela) Merkel and even Vladimir Putin, and so on, they all have been Young Global Leaders of the World Economic Forum. But what we are very proud of now is the young generation like Prime Minister (Justin) Trudeau … We penetrate the cabinet. So yesterday I was at a reception for Prime Minister Trudeau and I know that half of his cabinet, or even more than half of his cabinet, are actually Young Global Leaders.‖ Klaus has mentioned Putin a second time as shown in the documentary Das Forum, which goes into behind the scenes footage of the World Economic Forum in Switzerland. In the clip Klaus states
I could continue listing more such data points, but that should be sufficient.
The fulfilment of globohomo objectives
We’ve demonstrated that Russia has undermined its own war efforts and that the Russian elite, especially Putin, are on board with the World Economic Forum agenda, with a western-oriented central bank which loots the country.
One of the counter-arguments to this is as follows: the war is just to stall, the real war being fought is the economic war; de-dollarization led by Russia is undergoing, and the Russian economy has held up well to sanctions and the Rouble has also held up. But the signs are not encouraging: Russia’s much–hyped “de–dollarized trade” with India is a complete failure, and the strength of the Rouble is also going in the wrong direction in the past year.
Fair enough. Let’s now consider a couple of data points from the United States:
- The U.S. withdrew from its 20 year Afghanistan war only 6 months before the start of the Russia/Ukraine war. Is this not curious? One could imagine how much harder it would have been for the U.S. to supply Ukraine so unconditionally if it was still committed to fighting the Afghanistan war. Secretary of State Blinken admitted that aiding Kiev would have been ―more complicated‖ without exit from Kabul.
- The U.S. always needs a Forever War in order to justify its military industrial complex’s enormous, black-hole graft and theft; and there was a question of what would fulfill that role post-Afghanistan. The immediate pivot to Ukraine fulfils that objective perfectly. The Pentagon has never passed an audit and in 2013 it was estimated that $8.5 trillion dollars of Pentagon funds had been ―lost‖; see here for further insight into military industrial complex spending. The Senate approved the initial $40 billion Ukraine aid bill with no checks or balances on the aid (Rand Paul tried to insert a special inspector general to oversee the funds but failed), and there have also been follow-up totalling additional tens of billions of dollars with additional funds from allies.
- According to a CBS documentary only 30% of U.S. supplied arms/munitions reached its final destination. Roughly 10% of U.S. manufacturing output pre-war went into weapons production, or about $220 billion/year, so the money to be made is enormous. Compare this with Russia’s total military budget, which in 2021 was only about $63 billion/year.
For the U.S. military industrial complex to so seamlessly shift from one Forever War to the next to continue their massive grift is indeed curious. What other globohomo objectives does the war fulfil? Here’s a partial list:
- It was designed to shift the media’s focus away from a flailing COVID narrative without allowing any of the perpetrators to pay for false fear-mongering, such as Dr. Fauci, the CDC, and the plethora of doctors, nurses, scientists, government and media organizations that pushed it not just nationally but worldwide. By switching to the next Meta
- It providing a ―Russia’s at fault‖ excuse for politicians to shift blame for soaring inflation, which was fundamentally caused by the $11+ trillion dollars printed during COVID in the U.S. and had nothing to do with Russia:
- The war furthers the Great Reset agenda pushed by the World Economic Forum. Ukraine is the breadbasket of Europe and one of the top exporters of grain worldwide, and the disruption caused by the war is causing food prices to soar. This may in turn lead to starving refugee swarms from Africa into Europe, seen as a plus by the WEF to help crush populist discontent in western countries.
- The amount of graft and kickbacks to American politicians is a significant portion of the aid supplied, with corrupt Ukraine politicians taking a cut and funnelling much of the rest of the funds back into America, which is par for the course in Ukraine except in terms of the size of the graft. Additionally Blackrock gets to buy up ultra–depressed Ukrainian assets for pennies on the dollar in coordination with Zelensky.
- The U.S. (and U.K.) achieves its objective of preventing Nordstream 2 from going online, which would have solidified long term ties between Russia and Germany to the U.S.’s strategic detriment
, and even Nordstream 1 has been scuttled. The U.S. blew up Nordstream 2 as conclusively proven by Seymour Hersh, which is a traditional casus belli for war by Germany; however, Germany has been unable to respond due to Germany remaining militarily occupied by the U.S. since the end of World War 2 (119 U.S. bases in Germany as of 2020).
- Globohomo gets to purge Ukraine of Russian influence by banning the Russian Orthodox Church and by banning all opposition parties.
So the war checks a lot of boxes and fulfills a lot of globohomo objectives. And it does these while Russia fights, in a grinding, plodding, expensive war (both in men, materials and funds) its own genetic and religious brethren in a country named ―Borderland‖ in Russian. An argument can also easily be made that globohomo really wants to genocide white Christian slavs.
From all these standpoints, the war is a resounding success for our grifting elite.
So what should we expect moving forward?
I think it depends on whether globohomo decides to honor whatever backroom agreement it has with Russia’s leadership (an agreement that seems to involve furthering the central bank owner objectives in return for a guarantee that Russia’s elite can remain in power to continue their financial grifts indefinitely), or alternatively decides to abrogate the agreement and move in for the kill. The weaker Russia looks the more tempted out of greed and bloodlust (see Victoria Nuland’s record) they will consider a backstab and betrayal. Imagine how much richer the globohomo elite will get if they are able to conquer Russia, carve it up into small districts and brutally exploit its natural resources! How amazing it would be for them!
History shows they’re itching to do this; a history the corrupt Russian elite are studiously ignoring. This map shows the aggressive expansion of NATO eastward since the end of the Soviet Union
, with Finland the most recent addition:
If globohomo doesn’t abrogate its backroom agreement and go in for the kill, expect the war to last a long time – because they won’t want to give up a war fulfilling so many objectives, and the military industrial complex always needs its Forever War (although, to be fair, a January 2023 RAND study recommended a wind-down to pivot against war with China, but it looks like it’s being ignored; Tucker Carlson’s firing can also be viewed in this context as he was also arguing for a pivot to China, and the Pentagon was ecstatic to see him gone).

―The primordial interest of the United States, over which for centuries we have fought wars– the First, the Second and Cold Wars– has been the relationship between Germany and Russia, because united there, they’re the only force that could threaten us. And to make sure that that doesn’t happen.‖ George Friedman, STRATFOR CEO at The Chicago Council on Foreign Affairs
The expansion of NATO was a deliberate breach of verbal assurances provided by America to Russia when the Soviet Union dissolved that NATO would not expand eastward. Russia also had ample precedent to intervene in Ukraine per the United States’s prior intervention in the Serbia/Kosovo war in contravention of international law. But as Carl Schmitt argues, ―Sovereign is he who decides on the exception‖ — and the decider of the exception when it comes to world politics is the United States, not Russia. Source
