Sometimes it’s good to take your toys and go home.
When you’ve been pounded over the head more than a number of times that you, your toys and anything else you might want to offer the world’s playground is not wanted, there comes a time when you quietly turn your back, maybe mutter a few words to yourself and take your toys and go home.
Trump Plans Expulsion of Russian Envoys Over U.K. Attack – via Bloomberg.com
President Donald Trump is preparing to expel dozens of Russian diplomats from the U.S. in response to the nerve-agent poisoning of a former Russian spy in the U.K., two people familiar with the matter said Saturday.
It’s always a good thing to have someone to blame, someone to point a finger at, someone to cast haughty looks of disdain at – to distract your grade A criminal ways. And when you belong to a group of criminals who regularly lie, cheat, steal, and murder innocents as a part of your every day, it’s really a good thing to have someone to wag your holier-than-thou finger at so that your criminal activities are never questioned, and especially beneficial when you have a lapdog press to cover for you.
The nerve-agent poisoning of a former Russian spy is nothing more than horseshit – afternoon tea style. The Brits know it, surely the liars in the US government know it but that doesn’t and won’t stop them from ratcheting up their version of Russian roulette that they’re playing with all our lives. The whole Russiagate election charade is just another bucket of dung. The criminals know this but in their hubris, their arrogance – they hold onto the dead belief that “might makes right” and that the rest of world should lick the popsicle of Washington’s demonic dreams.
Washington could care less. They could give a shyte about you, about me and certainly could give a shyte for the lives of innocents they sentence to death with their endless wars seeking regime change. Their only concern is to hold onto their power. Nothing more, nothing less.
Those who aren’t living in the land of lunacy have a different perspective, and one well worth listening to:
“Why We Don’t Respect the West Anymore”
by Maria Simonyan, editor-in-chief of RT TV channel and MIA “Russia today” via thesaker.is
“Essentially, the West should be horrified not because 76% of Russians voted for Putin, but because this elections have demonstrated that 95% of Russia’s population supports conservative-patriotic, communist and nationalist ideas. That means that liberal ideas are barely surviving among measly 5% of population.
And that’s your fault, my Western friends. It was you who pushed us into “Russians never surrender” mode.
I’ve been telling you for a long time to find normal advisers on Russia. Sack all those parasites. With their short-sighted sanctions, heartless humiliation of our athletes (including athletes with disabilities ), with their “skripals” and ostentatious disregard of the most basic liberal values, like a presumption of innocence, that they manage to hypocritically combined with forcible imposition of ultra-liberal ideas in their own countries, their epileptic mass hysteria, causing in a healthy person a sigh of relief that he lives in Russia, and not in Hollywood, with their post-electoral mess in the United States, in Germany, and in the Brexit-zone; with their attacks on RT, which they cannot forgive for taking advantage of the freedom of speech and showing to the world how to use it, and it turned out that the freedom of speech never was intended to be used for good, but was invented as an object of beauty, like some sort of crystal mop that shines from afar, but is not suitable to clean your stables, with all your injustice and cruelty, inquisitorial hypocrisy and lies you forced us to stop respecting you. You and your so called “values.”
We don’t want to live like you live, anymore. For fifty years, secretly and openly, we wanted to live like you, but not any longer.
We have no more respect for you, and for those amongst us that you support, and for all those people who support you. That’s how this 5% came to be.
For that you only have yourself to blame. And also your Western politicians and analysts, newsmakers and scouts.
Our people are capable to forgive a lot. But we don’t forgive arrogance, and no normal nation would.
Your only remaining Empire would be wise to learn history of its allies, all of them are former empires. To learn the ways they lost their empires. Only because of their arrogance.
White man’s burden, my ass (in English in the original text – trans.)
But the only Empire, you have left, ignores history, it doesn’t teach it and refuses to learn it, meaning that it all will end the way it always does, in such cases.
In meantime, you’ve pushed us to rally around your enemy. Immediately, after you declared him an enemy, we united around him.
Before, he was just our President, who could be reelected. Now, he has become our Leader. We won’t let you change this. And it was you, who created this situation.
It was you who imposed an opposition between patriotism and liberalism. Although, they shouldn’t be mutually exclusive notions. This false dilemma, created by you, made us to chose patriotism.
Even though, many of us are really liberals, myself included.
Get cleaned up, now. You don’t have much time left.”
My children, nieces and nephews, all in the 20 to 40 age group, bemoan the emptiness of life in America.
Their friends are consumed with social media. Going out to a bar or to a restaurant to engage in conversation or meet a living human being is next to impossible. Why? Because everyone out is staring at their phone. There is no discussion anymore, there is no inquisitiveness, the truth is no longer sought, beauty has been cast aside – for most of the nation has been propagandized into believing that the latest tidbit of lunacy, the latest crumb of nuttiness, the latest vile demonstration of insanity as provided by the criminal set will circumvent their loneliness, their depression and disillusionment. And it does…for a couple of minutes. Those who have some morsel of mental strength left continue on, searching for an honest way out of disillusionment – those who haven’t the strength, more than likely, turn to opiates, drugs, and other forms of depravity that only a lonely soul finds.
Our country, our government, our educators, our very selves have let a generation fall by the wayside, leaving them with little hope, and certainly not the means, to overcome the insanity they face each day. We have succumbed to the lies that we are continually fed, the propaganda, the outright degradation of all this is good, true and uplifting – opting out to turn our gaze away from truth and beauty and settle for the lies of what is politically correct…as fed to us by the liars, cheats, scum and murderer’s that we elect to lead us year after year after year.
So, yes Russia…take your toys and go back home. There isn’t much sanity left here in America among any of our elected nutjobs. They don’t care might to listen to your calls for peace, for getting along, for working together to stop terrorism…to make the world a better place for ALL. The criminals in Washington are psychotic scum, drunk with their nightmares of a hellish life they demand the rest of the world drink from.
You, Russia, evidently, have enough love, self respect, love of the truth, love of history, of beauty – a love of life – all that which the West and its’ the ugliness can’t abide by.
Take your toys and go home, as every lunatic here in America and West wants you to do. Evidently, there is no place here anymore for what you offer.
