With Russiophobia being the latest craze to pollute the minds of Americans with images of goblins and ghouls that are out to wreak havoc on the American way of life; which is turning into nothing more than a nightmare of fake news from the main stream media, an entertainment industry that puppets government and media propaganda to appeal to a dumbed down populate, the bastardization of food and medicine into unrecognizable globs of malnutrition and poison – it’s always a good thing to get a perspective from one who knows more than the dim-witted, TV teleprompter readers and “journalists” writing about that “evil” menace that we’re told are interfering in other parts of the globe by an unhinged Defense Secretary.
Russia Has Its Own Destiny. The US Must Accept This — Or Get Out of the Way by Valerie Z. Nollan (we encourage reading the full article. It is well worth the read.)
“Demonizing Moscow will not stop Russia from seeking a multipolar world order based on respect for national sovereignty. Washington must come to terms with this — or get out of the way.”
The Russian government repeatedly expresses its willingness and desire to collaborate with the U.S. on a host of issues, ranging from a peaceful resolution of the war in Syria, to fighting terrorism, to strengthening the security architecture of Eurasia, to business and economic partnerships. Every offer is refused. At the same time, Russia extends its hand of cooperation to all countries without exception for communication in a reasonable manner. It sponsors high-profile annual international conferences that bring representatives of many professions to its cities for spirited dialogue on intellectual, economic, and political issues.
Examples include the prestigious Valdai International Discussion Club, the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, and the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok. In addition, part of China’s Silk Road economic trade route will run through Russia. If the U.S. is not careful, it will fall out of step with the rest of the international community; rather than Russia’s being ‘isolated,’ it may be the U.S. that finds itself in this position.
While U.S. corporations ruin the country’s food supply by keeping farm animals in horrific states of confinement and pumping antibiotics, carbon monoxide, growth hormones, and steroids into their tormented bodies, Russia refuses to allow agri-chemical giant Monsanto (now under the wing of Bayer) into its territory, preferring instead to keep the country’s food organic and export non-GMO food. The Russian government has created an initiative to make Russia the world’s number one exporter of healthy food by the year 2020. Where is this reported in the West’s mainstream media? It is hidden from the American public, for it does not fit the ‘evil’ stereotype.
An infrastructure here in America that is falling apart, the homeless and the mentally ill who are for the most part forgotten, genetically modified foods, geoengineering from the skies, a media determined to pit race against race, gender against gender, class against class, the endless wars heaped upon countries that didn’t give us a welcome mat, and a pharmaceutical industry that has a stranglehold on what they deem to be good health – all points to a country that is taking its final breaths.
The pharmaceutical industry has more lobbyists in Washington D.C. than any other industry, including the weapons industry. Similarly, Big Pharma is routinely caught committing felony crimes involving price fixing or bribery “kickback” schemes such as the GlaxoSmithKline criminal bribery network that involved over 40,000 U.S. doctors.
Big Pharma is a massive criminal racketeering enterprise with a devastating cost in human lives, suffering and financial bankruptcy. If the parasitic drug cartels are not stopped, they will destroy America by obliterating its financial solvency, human health and even human freedom. – Mike Adams, Naturalnews.com
And to finish up from the article by Ms. Nollan:
The Russian government is taking genuine steps to care for its people and improve their living conditions. By any statistics and other legitimate demographic indicators, Russia as a whole is recovering from the economic genocide it experienced at the hands of international oligarchs and U.S. politicians in the 1990s.
The U.S. Congress wastes its time on artificially-manufactured Russian ‘threats’ and squanders taxpayers’ money on endless discussions, in order to thwart attempts at cooperation and making peace with Russia. Empty, fact-free rhetoric and name-calling abound, instead of informed debates on real issues. It is more profitable for lawmakers to demonize Russia and President Putin than to address the U.S.’s domestic problems: to provide for the poor, create a workable national healthcare system, modernize the country’s infrastructure, and reallocate the billions of dollars spent on the military’s full-spectrum dominance operations to funding a cash-strapped educational system.
The last paragraph sadly sums up present day America.
If ever the services of “the Bullshit Man” were needed in America, now is the time!

Your articles are always well-thought out, and while I don’t always agree with everything you say, I enjoy reading it. I’m not sure I agree the media is out to pit people against each other, although you can argue that is the end result. I think their goal likely is ratings and the consequences include a poorly informed public acting on misinformation.
