The Irreverent

Less than one week after Joe Biden claimed his “unprecedented sanctions” had reduced the ruble “to rubble,” Russia’s currency has recovered all its losses and is now trading higher than before the war began. – via informationliberation.com

Our globalist overlords used and abused sanctions to go after all of their political enemies and now they’re shooting blanks.

They’ve alienated so much of the planet that no one is listening to them anymore.

As Pepe Escobar noted earlier this month, “no nations from West Asia, Latin America or Africa have joined Washington’s sanctions bandwagon.”

French companies are refusing to leave Russia and China and India are holding firm.

This is a complete and total humiliation for the DC regime. (worth reading in full)

“He is the man for whom nothing could be greater than himself, who never sees beyond his own horizon, from whom the world of being hides no secret.  He is the man Shakespeare has in mind in his Hamlet:

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy

He is the man possessed of a blighting incomprehension, without yearnings, like Famulus in Goethe’s Faust, who is completely filled by ‘how wondrously far he had gone’. This man suspects nothing of the breadth and depth of the world, of the mysterious depths and the immeasurable fullness of values that are bespoken by every ray of the sun and every plant, and that are revealed in the innocent laughter of a child, as well as in the repentant tears of a sinner.” – Dietrich von Hildebrand – The Art of Living
