Russia - Without the Propaganda - Part One: Rise of Communism to 1991 / Politics / Russia

By: Raymond_Matison

This set of two articles is being created to investigate Russia’s embrace and evolution from Communism, political development of their new state, advance of their market economy, current influence in the world regarding regional conflicts affecting their near geographical neighbors, and potential threat to the United States. 

This first article reviews major events leading to the Russian Communist revolution in 1917, through the two world wars and subsequent Cold War to the ultimate unraveling of the Soviet Union.  The second article in this series looks at the development of a new Russia – without the propaganda.  Consequently, that article looks at facts and some statistics rather than politicized opinions of proponents or opponents.  One can lie also with statistics, but less so, and they tell a story that the reader himself can evaluate and confirm either to accept or reject. 

Since the beginning of the 20th century Soviet Union’s or Russia’s military force has participated directly or indirectly in WWI, WWII, Korea, Yugoslavia, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Ukraine, and Syria.  Despite the world being a huge space, America also has been a participant in these same countries, and over the last several decades the U.S. has identified certain countries as formidable rivals or even as “enemies endangering our national security”.  Russia, China, Iran, North Korea and even Venezuela are on this list.  Curiosity caused this author to investigate the reasons why these less economically developed and militarily weaker countries are such a concern to the all-powerful United States.  Those wishing to review this author’s investigations into China, Iran, Vietnam, or North Korea may do so by accessing Market Oracle’s Author’s Archive, for those interested in Russia, read on.

UN Warns Of Famines Of Biblical Proportions Due To Lockdown Caused By Covid Plandemic / Politics / Food Crisis

"Let them eat cake"

As the legend goes, this was Queen Marie-Antoinette from France’s famous response to the peasants who complained they didn’t have bread to eat. With this, she reportedly became a hated symbol of the decadent monarchy and fueled the revolution that would cause her to (literally) lose her head several years later.

US Coronavirus Catastrophe Current State / Politics / Pandemic

By: Nadeem_Walayat

US buck passing has started as Trump de funds the WHO in the middle of a pandemic, yes the WHO has been infiltrated by the CCP as have many western institutions just as the CCP was planning on having the likes of Huawei infiltrate western 5G networks that they were offering at deep discounts to the fools in the UK government who were eager to blindly lap it up despite warnings from the US.. At least the US did not fall for China's 5G cunning plan. Though of course following the corona catastrophe many nations should be waking up to the full spectrum Chinese threat that includes bio-weapons as the story of the lab in Wuhan being the source of the pandemic has once more started to make an appearance in the mainstream press. And It does not matter if it is true or not for it is all for inclusion in the dossier that is being quietly assembled by US Intelligence agencies in preparations for military action later this year.

How My Quantum Computer Interpreted and Predicted the Coronavirus Pandemic 2020 - DEVS Machine / Politics / Quantum Computing

By: N_Walayat

This video shows how my Quantum Computer interpreted the unfolding Coronavirus events from late January that forecast the world was heading towards a pandemic just as Quantum computers such as that of DEVS of millions if not billions of Qubits offer the promise of being able to simulate reality and then project simulations backwards and forwards in time. Whilst DEVS is sci-fi that likely is a good 20 years away from becoming anywhere close to reality. However, do bear in mind that there already are several billion working quantum computers on the planet right now with the ability should the be so tuned to to simulate the past and project into probable futures and thus allow actions to be taken accordingly.

A Baby Boomer's Government Response to Covid-19 Plea / Politics / Coronavirus Depression

By: The_Gold_Report

Sector expert Michael Ballanger voices frustration with his own generation, which has "turned a blind eye" to the radical, fiscal and moral principles that shaped it.

I was born in the 1950s, a decade dominated by thousands of WWII servicemen marrying and starting families in the creation of the largest demographic in history, the "Baby Boom Generation." The 1950s saw Elvis Presley dominate the entertainment industry with ten #1 hits and the top box office movie was Disney's "Cinderella." Actors and actresses in the limelight included John Wayne and Marilyn Monroe, and the most popular sports figures were Jackie Robinson, Maurice Richard and Rocky Marciano, while politics were dominated by Eisenhower, Castro and Khrushchev. It was the decade that ushered in a "Cold War," which was the prelude to major attitudinal events of the '60s, including the Bay of Pigs Crisis and the assassination of JFK in '63.

UK Covid-19 Deaths are REAL Extra Deaths, Coronavirus Catastrophe Current State / Politics / Pandemic

By: Nadeem_Walayat

My last analysis (Are Coronavirus Death Statistics Exaggerated? Worse than Seasonal Flu or Not?) focused on answering the question are Covid-19 real extra deaths or are they people who would have died anyway. The answer to which was expected to be in the weekly total registered death statistics as published by the ONS Where my analysis concluded in a central expectation for the number of total UK deaths registered for the week ending 3rd April to jump by 44%. And for every percentage below then Covid-19 could be deemed to be less significant, but for every percentage above then would deem to be more deadly.

US and UK Government Response to Coronavirus is Like RABBITS in the HEADLIGHTS! / Politics / Pandemic

By: Nadeem_Walayat

RABBITS IN THE HEADLIGHTS are the UK and US Government Response to Covid-19. Nearly always acting about 6 weeks after they should have done so and only then when in the midst of a panic, likely due to being advised by mad scientists who should not have been let out of their ivory towers!

They do not have a clue, not a single clue whatsoever, literally are rabbits in the headlights cannot even understand the most basic aspects of what's taking place. If anything should come out of this crisis than it should be less reliance on governments! Though I fear the exact opposite may transpire as governments use the pandemic to expand their reach into every aspect of ordinary citizens lives which does not bode well for the next crisis!

Clapping for the NHS Heroes, Clap for Carers From Sheffield Across the UK Sound / Politics / NHS

Eliza joins the rest of Britain at 8'oclock to clap for the NHS heroes, clap for carers from Sheffield as the sound of clapping, banging of pots and pans, whistles and fireworks echo across the UK every Thursday night.

Even so the fact we have to do so is a sign of gross government negligence in the handing of the pandemic. None of which should have happened as Taiwan and South Korea illustrate.

Bob Moriarty's Thoughts on the Coronavirus / Politics / Coronavirus Depression

By: The_Gold_Report

Bob Moriarty of 321gold shares his thoughts on the coronavirus.

If there was ever a time for real leaders to step forward and lead, the last four months would have been the time to do so. If there was an issue that demanded cooperation from all the nations of the world, we have seen it. Instead we have been fed a steady diet of disinformation and outright lies from almost every government at most levels. If these are the leaders, we ought to fire the whole lot and start anew. Instead of "women and children first," we are seeing "every man for himself."

I've been fairly quiet for the last ten days or so and a lot of people have been bugging me to write more. Certainly this is an important issue so I'll give you my thoughts.

The Trump COVID-19 Deflection Game / Politics / Pandemic

By: Dan_Steinbock

President Trump blames the WHO for his administration’s COVID-19 debacle. In reality, the White House knew about the virus threat already on Jan 3 but chose not to mobilize until late March.

In a recent interview with Fox News, President Trump said that the projections and pronouncements of the World Health Organization (WHO) about the coronavirus pandemic have been routinely wrong.

"Literally, they called every shot wrong," the president added. "They didn't want to say where [coronavirus] came from.” Threatening the WHO with the withdrawal of US funding, Trump charged WHO director-general Dr Tedros for siding with “Communist China.”

The Wuhan Virus Pricked the Everything Bubble / Politics / Coronavirus Depression

By: Michael_Pento

Inflationary and Insolvency Implosion of the Bond Market

We are all praying for the Wuhan virus to die. But there is something the virus can actually “cure” itself: deflation. I put the word cure in quotes because it's not an actual issue in reality. Low inflation and disinflation are actually great conditions to enjoy and help an economy thrive. Increasing the purchasing power of consumers is something that should be cherished and targeted goal. Increases in productivity, along with a strong currency, raises your standard of living. In sharp contrast, Central Banks think any rate of inflation that is less than 2% is a deadly economic disease that must be vanquished faster than the Wuhan virus.

The Road To Perdition Is Paved With Evil Intentions / Politics / Social Issues

“Suckers think that you cure greed with money, addiction with substances, expert problems with experts, banking with bankers, economics with economists, and debt crises with debt spending”Nassim Nicholas Taleb, The Bed of Procrustes: Philosophical and Practical Aphorisms

“Globalization has created this interlocking fragility. At no time in the history of the universe has the cancellation of a Christmas order in New York meant layoffs in China.”Nassim Nicholas Taleb

As we continue our national lockdown suicide cult to hell, I find myself getting angrier and angrier at the pathetic leadership displayed by politicians, government bureaucrats, so called medical “experts”, and intellectual yet idiot academics displaying their ignorance of facts, reality, history, and humanity. My nature is to be skeptical of everything I read or am told.

UK Covid-19 Deaths Analysis - Danger Real or Exaggerated? / Politics / Pandemic

By: Nadeem_Walayat

This is part 1 of 2 that updates the current trend trajectories for the coronavirus mega-trend, where whilst the pandemic itself may not last more than a year nevertheless the magnitude of which is likely to impact many aspects of our lives for decades to come. Where the purpose of this analysis is to ensure that we are not all getting carried away by media headlines that could be over exaggerating covid-19 that has resulted in unprecedented government measures. Especially as a significant percentage of people, usually those yet to experience the first hand consequences of the Coronavirus, see it largely in terms of being a corona hoax, fake news, a grab for power, a plandemic, the elites once more playing their power games to enrich themselves just as they did during the financial crisis.

The Society will Strike Back, or are the Swedish too Dumb? / Politics / Social Issues

By: Submissions

I first wrote about a contact tracing surveillance app on mobile phones on 6th April 2020. Six days later, on the 12th April Apple and Google announce their cooperation to develop such app. Apart from the fact the authorities will never let a tech company to store such sensitive information the fundamental problem with Google and Apple plan is the fact that a government will not accept a disease carrier individual to freely and anonymously pass a disease to others in society. It is against the fundamental responsibility of each sovereign state to keep health and well being of society. It is highly naive if Apple or Google thinks that the state will not get involved and will have a closed eye on the control of such sensitive information. As I stated before we will move eventually more to a full implementation of a state contact tracing (surveillance) plan.

Covid-19: Who, what, when, where and Why? / Politics / Pandemic

By: Richard_Mills

If there is one thing we know about the coronavirus, it’s that getting a jump on it helps to limit the number of infections. Clearly the best time to stop this, and all outbreaks, is in its early stages. 

Both China and the United States have been accused of suppressing information and delaying acting on knowledge that could have significantly limited the spread of covid-19. 

Some may argue this is no time for armchair quarterbacking, as the virus continues to ravage the United States, Canada and several nations in Western Europe including the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain.

Coronavirus Socialism / Politics / Coronavirus Depression

By: Patrick_Watson

When (hopefully soon) we all get out of coronavirus lockdown and try to resume normal life, we will probably find a different “normal.”

The best-case outcome: scientists discover a “magic bullet” treatment that quickly restores the most serious cases to health. We could then ease restrictions and get on with business.

But more likely, any such treatment is months away and a vaccine probably a year away, so many precautions will have to stay in place. We won’t see large gatherings and crowded restaurants anytime soon.

But we’ll see something else: a radically different economic structure.

UK Coronavirus Trend Trajectory Current State - Video / Politics / Pandemic

By: Nadeem_Walayat

At times it can be difficult not to be swept along with the NHS wave that has gripped Britain, the clapping and cheering, and stories of Nightingale hospitals coming on stream with thousands of beds. But the same dynamics are at work here, i.e. a high percentage of people on ventilators eventually dying and a surge in the number of patients, so one should take media stories focused on the 15,000 or so of extra beds across Britain's Nightingale hospitals with a pinch of salt, as likely they will not turn out to be anywhere near as effective as people believe them to be should they end up in a Nightingale hospital. So more a publicity stunt than building effective extra capacity.
