Dear Readers,
I have been approached by some very important people about writing a weekly 2000-word article on current events. Amidst the fake news, propaganda, and frankly retarded bullshit that we are subjected to on a permanent non-stop basis, I feel inclined to see if I can help out with some honest information and analysis to clarify events. I am thinking of calling this column “What the Hell is Going on Here, Anyway,” although “What in the World is Happening” might be more appropriate.
First a word about myself. I am a former political science professor who now spends too much time making radio shows for the Republic Broadcasting Network (RBN). For a while, I was spending 22 hours a week on air, but I have cut it down to less than ten, mostly on my own daily National Bugle Radio show on RBN, with the remainder coming on other people’s shows, most notably the David Duke show. Someone could presumably get all the information I have to offer simply by listening to ten hours of programming every week, but that seems like an awful waste of time, so I am going to try to create concise digests of my programming for people with lives to live and things to do. Hopefully, with a bit of practice, I will get good at it. Time will tell.

Our top story of the week: Gonzalo Lira dies in a Ukrainian prison.
“Why is this the top story of the week?” you may well ask. Have you even ever heard of Gonzalo Lira? He was a 55-year-old American journalist, novelist, film director, blogger, blogger, and YouTuber who had worked in Hollywood and elsewhere. Since 2010, he lived in Kharkiv, the largest city in the predominantly Russian-speaking part of Eastern Ukraine, with a wife and two children. Since the start of the war in Ukraine in February 2202, Lira had been a critic of the policies of Ukraine and the United States.
He pointed to the fact that it is impossible for Ukraine to defeat the Russian army and that the unprecedented economic sanctions against Russia would backfire. He produced a list of opposition politicians, journalists, and other prominent people who had disappeared or been murdered or tortured by the Ukrainian government. So perhaps it is not surprising that he was arrested by Ukrainian authorities. But it was surprising that an American citizen could be tortured and left to die on January 12 of this year in a Ukrainian prison at a time when Ukraine has received over $100 billion in aid from the United States and is begging for more.
Normally it is the job of the State Department is to help Americans overseas if they are in trouble. Embassy staff will visit and work to get arrested Americans free. Two years ago, for example, American women’s basketball player Brittney Greiner was arrested in Russia on drug possession charges. The proxy war against Russia had just begun, so the State Department had to work hard to free Griner. But Ukraine is so reliant on the United States that it should have been a slam dunk to get Gonzalo Lira released.
The problem was that the State Department, and in particular Victoria Nuland, refused to help. According to RT, Gonzalo Lira himself said: “She despises me.” Why? Well, it is widely accepted that Victoria Nuland was the architect of the 2014 Maidan coup that overthrew President Victor Yanukovich, who had been elected largely due to the support of Russian speakers in eastern and southern Ukraine and replaced him with anti-Russian leaders of her own choosing. One can refer to the captured cell phone call she had with the American ambassador in Ukraine in which she famously said “Fuck the EU,” but also specified whom among the coup leaders she wanted in which governmental posts.
Trump fired Nuland on his first day in office, but Biden brought her back into the State Department in the number three position. According to Lira, (and I completely agree with this view), Nuland, a former U.S. Ambassador to NATO, intentionally provoked the Russian invasion with the prospect of near-term NATO membership for Ukraine and the potential of stationing nuclear weapons just seven flight minutes from Moscow. Her plan was to sacrifice Ukraine in order to create the pretext for imposing unprecedented economic sanctions that would cripple the Russian economy and lead to the ouster of Vladimir Putin.
But saying that was not what got Lira killed. His crime was releasing a long podcast on Victoria Nuland in which he asserted that her hatred of Russia is an ethnic grudge stemming from her family history. (It is still on YouTube, find it while you can here: Victoria Nuland (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzR—YDDIQ)) He cited her grandfather, who was a Jew named Nudelman who emigrated to America from Odessa when it was still part of the Russian Empire. He wound up dying of syphilis, but not before abusing Nuland’s father to the extent that he eventually wound up spending a year in a mental institution (See this New York Times article from 2003 on her father, who eventually became a doctor and a best selling author (AT HOME WITH — DR. SHERWIN NULAND; Vanquishing A Troubled Legacy – The New York Times (https://www.nytimes.com/2003/02/27/garden/at-home-with-dr-sherwin-nuland-vanquishing-a-troubled-legacy.html)) , and according to Lira, Nuland blames this ultimately on the anti-semitism that her grandfather experienced in the old country. Lira also contended in the podcast that Nuland’s ethnic resentment of Russians is not the exception in the American Jewish community, it is the norm.
Regardless of what you think of Lira’s evaluation of American Jewish attitudes, when you consider that the State Department’s top three officials at the outbreak of the war were all Jews (Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman, and Nuland), not to mention Ukraine’s Jewish President Volodamir Zelinsky, this proxy war against Russia as a very Jewish nature to it. However, in America and most of the West it is completely taboo to mention this obvious fact. Lira broke the taboo, and he has paid for it with his life. The only question is whether Nuland simply refused to prevent his torture and death, or whether she ordered it in the first place.

The goofiest story of the week has to be the discovery of tunnels under the Chabad Lubavitch world headquarters in Brooklyn. Many of you have probably seen videos of a riot that took place in the shul of the compound as police stopped young orthodox men from tearing paneling from the walls to expose the tunnels, other men carrying odd items like a mattress with some odd liquid stain on it from the tunnel, assorted junk (including what appeared to be a baby’s high chair) in the tunnel itself, and most amusingly an orthodox man emerging hat first from a manhole and scurrying off into the Brooklyn night.
The videos sparked all kinds of speculation about what kind of horrific Satanic rituals were transpiring in those catacombs. There are certainly legitimate questions, and there should be a proper investigation, but the City of New York seems hellbent on filling the tunnels with cement, so perhaps we will never know. Brother Nathaniel Kapner, who was born into an orthodox Jewish family but has become about as harsh a critic of Jews as any serious person could be, says that actually the tunnels, weird as they are, are no big deal and it is a waste of time to spend too much energy on them when there are so many other bigger Jewish problems. I am inclined to accept his word.
Actually, I have always been a (slightly tongue-in-cheek) supporter of Chabad Lubavitch. If you look at the debacle at their headquarters, it is pretty obvious that they are not the brains behind any global Jewish conspiracy. Moreover, if they were ever successful in getting the rest of their ethnic brethren to live and dress in the traditional (and very stylish) manner, then there would be no hiding the fact that the top three people at the State Department are all Jews, for instance. Still, this very high-profile episode of obvious Jews behaving in a manner that seems too alien to the rest of America could not come at a worse time for the Jewish power structure, which is already having a public relations disaster with the behavior of Israel over the past three months.

And that leads me to the last story this week. South Africa has brought a case accusing Israel of genocide in Gaza to the International Court of Justice. According to the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, genocide is defined as “any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such:

(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;

It is clear that tens of thousands of Gazans have been killed, maimed, and mentally harmed over the past three months. Moreover, some 90% of Gazans have been displaced, their homes destroyed, the water, transportation, sanitation, and health care infrastructure turned to rubble. These are clearly “conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction.”
Much of the case revolves around the intent of the Israeli leadership. It does not help their case that so many cabinet ministers have made such outrageous statements, calling for Gazans to all be moved to “Ireland or Canada or some desert,” claiming that all Gazans are guilty of whatever crimes were committed against Israel on October 7, and especially Prime Minister Netanyahu’s invocation of the biblical story of the Amalekites in describing Palestinians. In the story, God commanded Saul to destroy the Amalekites, by killing man, woman, infant and suckling. It is a story of genocide.
Israeli leaders make such outrageous statements because they have lived their entire lives being able to behave with complete impunity due to the financial, military, and diplomatic cover offered to them by the power of the United States. What they have been slow to understand is that the power of the United States is waning fast, due in no small part to wars, mass immigration, and disastrous social and economic policies championed by their ethnic brethren in the United States. The prestige and position of the United States in the international system has declined markedly in just the past two years as a result of the failed effort by Victoria Nuland to regime change Vladimir Putin. Her scheme has resulted in Russia demonstrating its military competence in a victorious war. It has solidified the Russia-China relationship and turned the BRICS grouping they lead into the preeminent geopolitical grouping. Even erstwhile American allies like Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE have joined BRICS. This has turned these former allies into new partners of America’s stated enemies China and Iran.
Moreover, the BLM and pussyhat protest movements, which were completely astroturfed by the media and the Jewish-dominated elite, are now turning explicitly anti-Zionist. After decades of anti-white indoctrination in academia and the media, Ivy League universities are becoming hotbeds of anti-Israeli protests. Granted, the protesters for the most part do not share my understanding of the Jewish power structure and rather are outraged that Israel is doing white supremacy at the Palestinians, but the result is unprecedented criticism of Israel which is on the verge of morphing into an awareness of Jewish power unseen in America in our lifetime.

So, there is an awful lot going on. I think we are reaching a critical juncture that could usher in changes that would make for real improvements. As long as you, my dear readers, are interested in reading my views on these events, I will endeavor to continue presenting them to you.
