ANDRE VLTCHEK—Russia saved the world from Nazism. It did it at a horrific price of 27 million men, women and children, but it did it; courageously, proudly and altruistically. The West never forgave the Soviet Union for this epic victory either, because all that is unselfish and self-sacrificing, is always in direct conflict with its own principles, and therefore ‘extremely dangerous’.

ERIC ZUESSE—Once one side has lost the traditional conflict in Syria and/or Ukraine, or elsewhere, the other side will either unleash its nuclear stockpile against the other (except for whatever anti-missiles it holds in reserve against any of the enemy’s missiles that haven’t yet been destroyed in that blitz-attack), or else it will surrender to the other. There will be a ‘winner’, but the entire world will be the loser. This is what America’s ‘democracy’ has brought us to.

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—The US-centralized empire has every incentive to lie in order to manufacture support for escalations which hobble the Russia-China tandem, and has an extensive history of doing so. It isn’t up to us to come up with a perfect “counter narrative” for how that happened behind the opaque wall of deep state secrecy; that’s an argument from ignorance. It isn’t up to us to prove a negative, it is up to them to prove their positive claim. Prove the DNC hack, prove that the troll farm had ties to the Russian government and an intention of disrupting the election, provide proof of any Trump-Russia collusion whatsoever. That has not happened. At all.

Russia Insider editor disgusted (but not surprised) by NYTimes Editorial Still Beating the Drum for RussiaGate
CHARLIE BAUSMAN—I am continually amazed at the schizophrenia in America regarding so many things, but especially Russia and RussiaGate. It is very helpful to sometimes wonder over to the other camp and listen in. I did this by accident this morning, reading the New York Times, and could think of nothing better than to just reproduce in full what they are saying. It requires no comment and no refutation. It is perfect on its own, like a cockroach is perfect.

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—Back in September The Intercept ran an article trying to conflate opposition to Syrian interventionism with white nationalism, and I said back then things were getting increasingly shady with this particularly outlet. The repeated WikiLeaks smears, which have no place outside mainstream media, mean that people like me are going to be distancing ourselves from that publication and ceasing to look at it as a reliable outlet.
