Merkel Attacks US Over Anti-Russia Sanctions To Justify Building Her Economic Base To Fuel The Coming German War Machine

Recently, Germany expressed outrage at the USA for American sanctions against Russia, saying it could threaten German economic interests:

One day after the Senate almost unanimously passed a bill to impose new sanctions on Russia, an unexpected outcry against the US decision emerged from two of America’s closest allies, Germany and Austria, who yesterday slammed the new sanctions and accused the U.S. of having ulterior motives in seeking to enforce the energy blockade, which they said is trying to help American natural gas suppliers at the expense of their Russian rivals. And they warned the threat of fining European companies participating in the Nord Stream 2 project “introduces a completely new, very negative dimension into European-American relations.”
Today’s the unexpected fallout from the latest round of US sanctions has escalated, and according to Reuters, Germany has threatened to retaliate against the United States if the new US sanctions on Russia end up penalizing German firms, which they almost will as it foresees punitive measures against entities that provide material support to Russia in building energy export pipelines. Such as Germany, Austria and host of other European nations. Berlin is concerned that if passed in the House, the sanctions will pave way for fines against German and European firms involved in Nord Stream 2, a project to build a pipeline carrying Russian gas across the Baltic.

The unexpectedly sharp response from Germany comes at a time of deep strain in the transatlantic relationship due to shifts in U.S. policy and a more confrontational rhetoric towards Europe under Trump, who has not only demanded more funding for NATO, slammed Germany over its trade balance and cheap currency but also most recently exited Europe’s precious Paris climate treaty, Ironically, the part of the bill that threatens to impaire the already precarious relations with Europe was introduced by some of the president’s top critics, including Republican hawk John McCain.
As Reuters notes, “they are intent on limiting Trump’s ability to forge warmer ties with Russia, a key foreign policy pledge during his campaign for the presidency, but one he has been unable to deliver on amid investigations into alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. election.” Judging by Germany’s response this attempt to further alienate Russia may backfire dramatically, not only alieanting Berlin but bringing Europe and Russia closer, now that the Qatar gas pipeline – courtesy of Saudi Arabia – is a non-starter.

Finally, some European diplomats said they fear the threat of new measures out of Washington may harden Germany’s defense of Nord Stream and complicate already difficult talks among EU nations over whether to seek joint talks with Russia over the pipeline. “This is not helpful now. It tends to stir up desires to protect our territorial space,” one EU diplomat said, clearly another European who does not understand that when it comes to promoting US policy, whatever it may be, foreign sovereignty – even that of friendly nations  – is never a concern.

I have to give Merkel and her colleagues in Germany credit for their response. It is a finer example of muruna than is found among many Muslims.

The reality is that Merkel is likely not upset about what happened. In fact, she is probably celebrating the decision between her colleagues with a stein full of beer and a plate of schnitzel.

Let’s review a bit of global economic data about crude oil.

With the notable exception of Norway (and to a far lesser extent the UK), European nations that do not include Russia do not produce oil or natural gas in any significant quantity. If anything, they are consumers who are dependent on purchasing their fuel from outside sources to keep their economies functioning in the same way that many nations in the Arab world are absolutely dependent on purchasing their food from foreign and primarily Western nations to keep their nations from descending into starvation and subsequently, revolution. Here is a picture of all the gas lines which go to Europe and where they come from:

Gas comes to Europe (excluding Norway and the UK) from 1 of 3 places- Russia, Turkey, or Algeria and other parts of North Africa in that order. A look at the map above confirms this.

Russia is very important in the debate about energy and economy because she theoretically has more oil and gas resources than the entire Middle East combined. Much of these resources are untapped and many have yet to be discovered, but operating at the current and anemic capacity due to various reasons, Russia is still the world’s largest producer of natural gas and the second largest producer of crude oil (10% of the world’s total supply) after Saudi Arabia (at 20% of total supply).

Oil extraction in Russia. While Russia is mired by corruption from the highest to the lowest levels of government along with a host of other problems that have slowed her development of her oil reserves, due to her size and abundance in her territory, Russia has tremendous oil reserves both currently in use and even more waiting to be tapped.

It gets even more interesting to know that while Saudi Arabia still has tremendous oil reserves, it has been documented that the quality of oil being pulled up today is of a lower grade and has to be refined more than in the past in order to generate the same returns, while Russia not only has far more oil in terms of untapped and available reserves, but that it is of a higher quality and can be refined with less effort. When perceived from this angle, Russia is actually in a significantly more favorable long-term situation as regards to her energy supplies than Saudi Arabia. Saudi may have a greater market share, but Russia has overall greater stores.

In a normal world, it makes sense that the nations of Europe would be Russia’s largest customer for gas. However, the world is not nor has it ever been “normal” in the sense of doing what is most ordered for the greatest good. People are people, and due to the corruption of original sin they may and do at times seek to over take others in the pursuit of power that has plagued the human race since Eden.

Germany is at the current time preparing to bring back her old empire. Far from leaving her old ways, Germany has never changed her intentions one bit and is under attack from nobody more so than herself and for the same reasons- to stir up the German people to accept the quest for empire and power at all costs. This is the reason why there is a “refugee crisis” taking place in Germany right now, because there is no actual crisis.

Make no mistake, this is not a denial or dismissal of the Muslim violence in any way. Nothing could be further from the truth and it must be continually exposed and discussed because the fact that it is ignored and dismissed is a crime unto itself. What I am saying is that the officials in the German government, including Merkel, are not mere fools acting on simple whims, especially as far as the higher echelons of leadership are concerned. The Muslims are being given license to act in accordance with what Islam naturally encourages them to do and likewise are actively persecuting well-intentioned German citizens who disagree or speak out against what is happening intentionally so that it will rile the public to such a point they will demand for a solution to the problem. At that time, the same government and leaders who created this very problem will step in through different persons and “present” their “solution” to the people, which is to embrace National Socialism and all its heathen evils in the name of “saving the West” and “defending our people” and “our race,” and as Hitler demonstrated, Germany will carry out these goals by going to war and exterminating all who are labeled as traitors to the cause.

So many “refugees” from foreign backgrounds want to go to Germany, and Germany is encouraging them to come and intentionally destabilize her nation. They are being played for fools just as much as her own people are in a giant game of geopolitical chess.

If I was a “refugee” in Germany, I would go back to wherever I came from because once Germany finally goes into imperial mode, all of these people are going to be uniformly and indiscriminately blamed for Germany’s problems, whether real or perceived. They will be massacred without mercy and with the same blind eye turned to the Germans as the government has turned to them now by allowing them to commit crimes and face no legal reprisal.

Germany is well on its way to achieving this goal. Hatred- not mere dislike, but outright hatred- of non-Germans of any background is growing at an astonishing rate. Anybody who looks like he is “not German”- which is pretty much any non-European people, especially those from places such as Afghanistan, the Middle East, and Africa- is now being openly dispised by not just the National Socialists, but the common people and is aggravated each time a “refugee” commits a crime, and they do numerous one each day.

But while the “refugees” are the big focus of Germany, what is not being discussed at all are Germany’s economic excursions for oil and gas. Germany knows that in any war with Russia, just as with World War I and World War II, the minute the conflict begins Russia will immediately turn off all gas lines going to Germany. If she does not have a backup plan to get the raw materials she needs to run her economy, her plans will collapse almost instantly.

They say that the more things change, the more they stay the same. As such, one can expect Germany to repeat patterns she did leading up to and during the Second World War and for the same reasons now as then- because they are the most economically beneficial courses of action. This has already begun as Germany has been investing billions of dollars into Norway’s oil resources. If any conflict breaks out, Norway is going to be invaded by Germany simply for control over the oil fields. But that will not be enough oil (as well as other raw materials) to run an imperial war machine. To obtain said supplies, Germany is going to have to turn to sources outside of Europe. Certainly her long time ally in Turkey will aid her, but her main source of economic materiel will come from where she pulled it from in the Second World War- the nations of Northern and Sub-Saharan Africa.

We at Shoebat.com have already anticipated and been monitoring this trend because we expected it to happen, as we covered earlier this month how Russia is now attempting to undercut Germany’s influence in the east African nation of Eritrea, which is said to have some of the largest untapped oil and gas reserves in Africa and was invaded by the National Socialists in World War II for economic reasons. Our predictions have been proved correct, as the same Merkel who is currently giving away all of Germany’s national treasury to the over one million people who have “migrated” to Germany since 2015 is now saying that she is going to give millions of Euros to a host of African nations as “economic aid”:

Reducing poverty and conflict in Africa were the main topics raised by German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday as she met with African leaders ahead of next month’s Group of 20 (G20) summit.

The leaders of the African Union from Guinea, Egypt, Ivory Coast, Mali, Ghana, Tunisia, Rwanda and other nations met in Berlin to discuss a so-called “compact with Africa.” The initiative seeks to team up African nations which have committed to economic reforms with private investors who would then bring jobs and businesses.

“Positive development in the world will not work unless all continents participate,” Merkel said in Berlin. “We need an initiative that does not talk about Africa, but with Africa.”

Germany’s Finance Ministry announced on Monday that it agreed partnerships with Tunisia, Ivory Coast and Ghana as part of a planned investment of up to 300 million euros ($335 million) to help African nations.

Underscoring the pressure African countries face, Merkel contrasted Germany’s average age of 43 with the average age in Niger and Mali of 15.

“If we don’t give young people any prospects, if we don’t invest in education and qualifications, if we don’t strengthen the role of girls and young women, the development agenda won’t succeed,” she said.

Berlin is seeking to alleviate poverty particularly in African countries whose citizens have been among the hundreds of thousands of people who have arrived in Germany as asylum-seekers over the past two years. Last year, Germany took in around 890,000 migrants, thousands of whom came from African countries including Eritrea, Ghana and Ethiopia. (source)

On one hand, Merkel invites and pays for people from these nations to come to her country and gives them everything for free, does not ask them to work, and then whitewashes their crimes when they commit them. Now at the same time, she says that the way to stop spending money on these people is to spend more money on them in their native nations.

That logic makes absolutely no sense, and it does not from a strictly rational point of view. However, it makes perfect sense if one considers the geopolitical, economic, and logistical considerations necessary to establish and manage a warring empire preparing to attack the largest nation on earth both in terms of physical size and crude oil reserves. In exchange for “aid” to these African nations, German companies will get unlimited access to pillage Africa’s material wealth for their imperial needs. Not only that, but if history is any lesson, the German outposts in Africa will be used as testing grounds for eugenics techniques that will then be exported to Europe and used against the European people:

But a sinister new idea was forming in the evil minds of the governors of German South-West Africa. An ‘anthropologist’ was commissioned to investigate the prisoners, who reported that it was of ‘vital importance’ for the success of the German colonial project that those races deemed ‘unfit for labour’ should be allowed to disappear. ‘The struggle for our own existence’ depends on it, he warned.

And so the first Holocaust was born. Shark Island  –  a bleak rocky islet in the harbour outside Luderitz  –  would become the world’s first death camp and the most feared place on earth for all the black peoples of South-West Africa. (source)

But back to the words of Chancellor Merkel, don’t be led astray or surprised by her statements about criticism of the USA’s sanctions against Russia. She invites these sanctions because after feigning outrage at the USA, Germany is then going to turn around and use this as a justification for economic expansion into her former Nazi colonies in Africa, which are many of the same nations that she is giving “aid” to now.

Remember, with National Socialists, one will have trouble debating the facts because they embrace facts and generally speaking will tell the truth about a matter. The lie is in the conclusions given. In this case, it isn’t about concern over Russia turning off the gas to Germany or about Germany’s need to find other energy options- both are correct statements in themselves. What matters is the conclusion they are being used for, which is the rise of National Socialism by Germany following in the same pattern she did a century earlier, and in this case as to how she built up her economic base in the years leading up to World War II that is being repeated today.

  • The Frankish nobility is ruthless. I am becoming convinced when the Frankish nobility lost control of the Vatican, they began to plot a long game to undermine the Vatican. Phase 1 was the Protestant Reformation. Phase 2 is infiltrating the Vatican with liberal Catholics. Phase 3 is soon to be hatched once Pope Francis steps down.

    After reading this from “The Remnant Newspaper,” and from reading about the forged “Donation of Constantine,” I’m convinced the Germans are thirsting for revenge for the loss of control of the Vatican and explains why they allied with the Ottoman Empire.

    • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

      The work of Orthodox Father John Romanides, the late theologian, about the Germanic nobility, is very interesting in this regard. Tie it in with the Philo-Islamic Antichrist Frederick Hohenstaufen, the Teutonic Knights and the ‘Bull of Remini’, and a few other clues like ‘Secret Germany’, and yeah, you’ll be convinced my friend.

      • David W

        Do you recommend any of Fr Romanides books in particular? I need some more books for my Orthodox bookshelf. Much appreciated OCA!

    • Here’s the thing that some people need to bear in mind. The overarcing narrative being pushed daily by the corporate media is the Russians has interfered in America’s election.

      Congress has already wasted million of our hard earned tax dollars on fruitless investigation into any and every ties related to Trump’s victory in the election.

      The bill, supposedly targeting the energy sector, still has to go to the House of Representative to be voted on, and if passed, it has to go to Trump’s desk where it awaits his signature to become law. This part of the political procedure has been lost in the article by Andrew. It is not law yet!

      United States’ Secetary of State, Tillerson, a former CEO of Exxon, voiced concern over the possiblity of the sanction upon Russia says it would make it difficult to dialogue with Russia per BBC.

      Therefore, it is prudent for us American citizens to always bear in mind that Congress, by serving certain interested parties who finances many of their reelection, are simply marching to their order to aggravate any friendly dialogue between America and Russia.

      Now, suppose the bill goes through the House and lands on Trump’s desk, he is now in a pickle. The Congress, smelling blood in the water since they have chummed the water, would be watching to see what he does. Do nothing, and Congress will use this excuse to bog down the Trump’s administration with more hearings, more corporate media narrative to frustrate Trump. Trump does something like sign the bill into law, it basically shuts up Congress for a while as they huddle again and scheme new low to undermine the president.

      Putin is already on record saying it is too early to say what measures Russia will respond with which means he is all too aware of what Trump is faced with. His interview with Megyn Kelly reveals the breadth of his understanding of what Trump is faced with.

      • One more observation.

        America is simply continuing the policy established by the British Empire back in the days of playing both sides in order to maintain supremacy. This is nothing new. The Middle East is strategic for many reasons, not just for the oil reserves, but also for the numerous trade route to Far East nations. The British held military ports to protect spice trade routes from India and China as well as to fight Islamic pirates who regularly raids ships at the high sea. Today, America is the world power that maintain military supremacy and it is no surprise to see its head-scratching changing of minds when it comes to protecting vital trade routes in the Middle East.

        So, Germany, seeing an opportunity to continue their assertiveness in dominating European politics are copying America’s wheelin’ and dealin’ in order to advance a specific agenda – to grow its assertiveness, as Andrew stated in his contemplation. Just as it happened in WWII, Germany allied with Russia until betraying them, history judged it as a major strategic blunder that turned the tide of the war and expedient the fall of Berlin. Expect to see Germany and Russia come close together which should make folks nervous.

        If trade routes are strategic importance to America in the Mediterranean Sea, it will be for Germany as well, especially since, again as Andrew stated, Germany has begun to invest heavily in African nations. It will become of vital interest to Germany-Africa trade to protect the trade route and that is where the strategic partnership with NATO comes in. Who is the second largest military force in NATO but Turkey? Germany grows close to Turkey while maintaining the facade of being at odds over buzz words such as “democracy, freedom, and freedom of the press”. The wise will see through the BS and say, “This is deception.”

        In addition, as stated last night, I believe that Germany has their eyes on gaining control of the Vatican after losing centuries ago, and if they can have their appointments made inside the ruling elite of the Vatican, there is no telling what kind of damage the German-leaning Vatican will declare which the Germans will interpret as “God wills it.”

            ”corruption” is hard to quantify in politics and yet everywhere obviously present, like air. The difference between the corruption in Russia compared to America is American naivete. Russians know from the very nature of political power that personal enrichment for oneself and one’s family while in political office should almost be assumed and the exceptions to this are to be wondered at.

            I mean, look at the Clintons….

          • David W

            The naivete among the ice cream eating families obsessed with baseball’s and reality shoes is well known. Even in Central America, government employees and police are mistrusted.

            American public schools would make Stalin and Mao envious. The brainwashing, lies and even self-loathing instilled in boys (especially Caucasians) is frightening. After decades, the Marxist indoctrination is bearing fruit. The latest polls of Americans shows that a majority demand more government involvement and more laws to bring about “equity”. And 63 Million voted for the Hildebeast. The levels of violent crime and drug use is up (drug legalisation is sweeping the US). And violent social justice mobs are making our cities look more like Caracas. Why discuss political differences when you can get a gang of Bernie supporters to beat and firebomb opponents.

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            I wouldn’t go so far as to compare Stalin and Mao with this nonsense that is more like the ‘Frankfort School’ of revisionist Marxism; Marcuse, Adorno, Horkheimer, etc…But your post resonates with me nonetheless.

Japan was a pagan nation, in reality the only cities that were partially Christian due to the effort of Catholics missionaries were chosen by your government to blasted by the nukes. When you say they deserve every thing they got I only can see you as a psychopath, no compassion, no mercy. I know everybody in USA is not like that for I know people with so much compassiom and love for theyer neighbor

            LMAO! That’s right, I’m a monster for not living in la la land. You’re just an idiot liberal; I knew it immediately. Stay in your safe space, okay?Then, you needn’t worry about running into me.

          • filomena seiffert

            I am not stupid to be liberal, conservative, socialist or whatever name you want, I am myself with God, of course. You are a red neck. I am laughing and having so much fan with you and the likes. My eyes are in tears.

          • DeusLoVult

            I’m sure you, with your inflated sense of self-satisfaction, feel like you’re highly intelligent by tossing around what you believe to be derogatory American terms but I would suggest that you research such terms and learn their roots and where the came from… for your information the term “redneck” was used originally to describe extremely poor farmers, in most cases, tenant farmers whose necks were sunburned from working all day, everyday try to scratch a subsistence out of the land to pay rent to their landowners and to try to feed themselves and their families at a time when the rich really did oppress and take advantage of the poor. Some of the people I know are only one or two generations from those “rednecks” you so arrogantly and ignorantly throw off on who have a better life now because their “redneck” grandfather worked themselves into an early grave to give their children and, by default, their grandchildren, a better life than they had. Still think “red neck” is funny, you liberal b*tch?

          • Jami

            Dear Sister.
            I was just reading on the comments you wrote and the replies you got. I pray that you keep calm. Learn and read from here in the Articles and just read and read what others write and gain knowledge. Gaining knowledge is always good it’s better than giving away knowledge that you aren’t so sure of. The info. And knowledge you have is quite good but may be it isn’t fitting in the arguments and it isn’t relevant to all who read here. Try to be calm Sister. I feel sorry when anybody writes you bad languages just because you are not able to explain yourselves in the right way. Be a reader, be a listener, be silent, only comment when you got queries. That works. Think about the best role model Our Mother Mary. So calm, so gracious. May God Bless you and encourage you to stay calm and beautifull just as you are.

          • filomena seiffert

            I am calm but honest and compassionate towards other people suffering, specially when it is caused by pure evil on other people. Thanks for your comment. I am really blessed. If every body agreed with me then I w

            “Japan was a pagan nation, in reality the only cities that were partially Christian due to the effort of Catholics missionaries were chosen by your government to blasted by the nukes.”

            Fallacious argument. Implying without proof that the reason they chose those cities was the Christian presence. If you had half a brain, you would know that both cities contained industries vital to the Japanese war effort.

            Nope, I have no compassion for evil.

          • filomena seiffert

            Except if the evil is your government, then you are ready to defend against any Christian teaching. I despise people with your level of wickedness. I want to remind you you Jesus felt compassion even for the devils, He permitted them to enter the pigs.

          • DeusLoVult

            “I despise people with your level of wickedness.”

            I promise, the feeling is mutual.

          • David W

            Yes. The Japanese exceeded the Germans in the horrors of live “medical” experimentation camps and torture. She ignores the genocide perpetrated against Koreans, Filipinos, Indochinese, Indonesians, Malaysian, Thai or Burmese. Or the imprisoned Aussies. Or the rape of Nanking. Or the racism of Japan in its desire to enslave the world. Or the rampant Sodomy that was integrated into Japanese warrior culture. I doubt they would have surrendered if US soldiers lost millions of young men in an invasion of Japan.

          • DeusLoVult

            A conclusion any reasonable person would reach. Given her rabid animosity toward this country, I think she would be quite happy if millions of Americans had been killed by such an attempt. And yet, she calls me the psychopath.

          • filomena seiffert

            Assuming, why would I want genocide if I am totally against the ones that are happening right now, even to people from a religion that I do not like? such stupidity.

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            Yeah, really stupid of me to think that, unless having posited laying the crime of genocide on today’s Americans, you would want them to get their ‘just desserts’ from the hands of God or man….

            I actually think you are a pretty bloodthirsty harpy, myself, so I lean to the opinion I just expressed.

          • DeusLoVult

            Read her comments, and you be the judge.

          • Grandmere

            Oh, it is. Sadly.

          • DeusLoVult

            You’ll notice that no one here agrees with you. You see, what you call facts, reasonable people call conspiratorial bullsh*t. You have not an iota of evidence to support the premise of your argument because none exists. You’d best shut your mouth. As it is said, “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.”

            Not that you haven’t succeeded in that already, of course.

            What you ‘know’ couldn’t fill a page on a Word document.

            “And now you are resorting to ugly name calling.”

            I call people what they are when they’re not sophisticated enough to understand it in more polite terms.

            “Can not take a little criticism.”

            If by criticism, you mean moronic comments touting fictional history to attack my nation, then you’re right.

            “I was able to bring the real you out the box.”

            lol The real me…as though I hide who I am. Go ahead and pat yourself on the back though, if it makes you feel better.

            “Go, smoke your weed, you can not be real without it.”

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            The crushing defeat of the Japanese Imperial Army in Manchuria by the Red Army was a factor little appreciated in the West these days, but it was probably the greatest stomping the Japanese have ever had in their history, and proper revenge for the Russo-Japanese War 40 years before. The Atomic Bombing definitely spared Japan their very existence as a people, had they been so foolish to be ground down further by America and Russia.

          • DeusLoVult

            The Battle of Khalkhin Gol. A good stomping, and it gave Georgy Zhukov the experience he needed to stop the German blitzkrieg. It should be essential reading in even a cursory study of the war.

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            Yes, but i’m also referring to the Offensive that was in the final weeks of the Great Patriotic War. Russians have not forgotten, nor have the Japanese.

          Your pseudo-righteous indignation is noted. Thank you for the clarification. I think the final convincing words were North Korea and Iran as better than the US, that in fact the US is the beast.

          You not only went off the rails but through a ditch, over a cliff and smacked head on with a tree, all of which is oblivious to you.

          One thing is clear. You either not read one jot written by Walid about the beast mark or you have next to nil comprehension skills, or you’re just a troll, can’t decide which.

          • filomena seiffert

            USA use to be friends with Iran, Venezuela, Cuba until they decided to be free from USA yoke I do not know North Korea culture but I believe the animosity is because USA bully and demonize that nation. I can not assure USA WITH ITS VASSALS ARE THE BEAST BUT CERTAINLY FITS THE DESCRIPTION. maybe your need see things from God’s commandments, through Jesus teaching. The gate that leads to life is narrow and few will go through

          • Taurnil Oronar

            Kindly provide some Biblical references that remotely indicate the US as being the beast. Don’t bother because you can’t. Well in your unicorn land you could but only by applying a mobius type scattered brained interpretation of scripture with a judicious amount of selective scripture taken out of context.

            There are quite a few places in Scripture clearly stating where the seat of the beast and who it will be and you know what? The US ain’t it.

            Reading your posts a clue bat the size of a sequoia would not jar you to see things from God’s commandments and words, they are foreign to you.

          • filomena seiffert

            I do not use selective scriptures, I just compare to facts I see going on. But unlike you, I never put any government, nation or politics above God, He is and always will be my first priority for eternity. About how you demonize other countries and religions? Go eat grass for 7 years.

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            America is not the ”Beast”, if you have read the Saints and the Fathers you’d know that the ”Beast” is an Old World phenomena.

            Look, I’m no fan of Globalist Hegemonism, but if you clearly look with unbiased eyes you would see that the end time scenario is a fusion of Luciferianism with Esoteric Islam, which isn’t really all that strange when you think of it… With a history of Germanic Occult groups out there having Sufi links and names like ”the brotherhood of the Black Stone” which reminds one of the Kaaba.

            Speaking to you as an Orthodox Christian, one tied by faith and family to Russia, and in fact a Christian Socialist, I cannot still abide by this fervent Anti-Americanism you exhibit. Holy Russia has saved America a number of times in history and I cannot but feel that this was God’s plan for the good of the world, in the designs of mysterious Divine Providence.

          • filomena seiffert

            I am not anti american, I am against any evil in any country, my own as well. Christianity has bad apples every where. I do agree if it had not permitted from above, it would not have happened. Russia is not holy either, is just a persecuted country which committed great atrocities to its own people. My father used to say that America and Russia are the 2 beasts. If you do not want me bring out your sins do not speak with or about me.

            There you are! I was wondering when our Grandmere would jump in and say something. Unfortunately, for the sake of my constitution, I found it necessary to barricade my eyes from her cyber presence by the application of a certain feature disquis so mercifully supplies its users. I dare say it was becoming a vituperative attack against myself to simply gaze upon the vitriolic vernacular the hag so ungracefully expectorates onto the page. I am thoroughly fatigued by the platitudinal portmanteau of her ‘redneck’ narrative, that they are prejudiced and ignorant. This being, in her fantastically addled mind, the sole bracket of people who could possibly conclude her arguments are the apogee of absurd.

          • Grandmere

            You totally had me at “platitudinal portmanteau”. Writers from the South are among the best. I can see Poe ,Faulkner, Lee, Welty and Capote pulling out that old portmanteau. Kudos, darlin’. That’s “darling” for all the non rednecks. And just for good measure, I suggest they brush up on Mark Twain and H. L. Menckin for their satire.

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            Russia is Holy, precisely because the millions of Saints she had born, and those too who watered her ground with their blood. Interesting that today is the feast day among the Orthodox of the Saints of Russia, I call upon them to administer unto you.

          • David W

            We celebrate today the Russian saints who brought Orthodoxy to North America thru Alaska. Among many STS Herman, Nicolai, Innocent, Peter the Aleut martyred in San Francisco California.

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            The death of His Saints is precious in the sight of the Lord, we are to long not for this life, but to be caught up into the Life of the Holy Trinity. They knew it and lived it.

          • Kevin Nicholson
          • Juan

            Exactly, the Beast was depicted by Saint John (first century) like something that “once was, now is not and yet will come up out of the Abyss” (Revelation 17:8). Therefore you are right, brother in Christ, the Beast is an Old World phenomena.
            The description of Saint John doesn’t match with Germany.
            I agree with you regarding “secret Germany” and occultist nazism but there are also German Christians.
            The dynamic of sheep nations and goat nations is dangerous and can degenerate in open tribalism and racism. Dugin or Kissinger aren’t better than Merkel.

          • filomena seiffert

            The beast is a power and is present on the world according to Father Malachi Martin, and he was a very knowledgeable priest; spoke 15 languages, archaeology, exorcist with the knowledge of ancient writing. Should I listen to him or to you. Give me your credentials.

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            My credentials? I knew people who knew Fr. Martin very well, intimately well…. He wasn’t what you think he was, and he deliberately misled many people, precisely with all his knowledge.

            But more importantly, I am a sinful Christian, and my foolishness serves to confound the wisdom of the proud, I humbly pray.

            Don’t listen to me or to Fr. Martin, listen to God through the Fathers and the Councils, and not to the vain imaginings of silly men and women. It is delusion and will destroy you.

          • filomena seiffert

            But you want to push your agenda on me ganging with others who do not put God first. Fr Martin had knowledge and wisdom. Any one with a brain can see or feel the power of the beast on the world. You do not seam that humble to me

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            I have no agenda, I’m an Christian, and I can’t speak for or judge others in their hearts, just by what they say or do. Fr. Martin unfortunately was not full of the wisdom to match his intellect, but still, this often is the case with many smart people, even with me. I do feel the spirit of iniquity, but more so, I feel the sin inside me so that humbles me. It should humble anyone, even you.

            Again, I suggest the Fathers and the 7 Ecumenical Councils, their commentaries on the Holy Scripture, for Illumination.

      • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

        Russians interestingly enough aren’t so naive about it either, and it’s very simple why. Russia’s Eurasian geography and the historical facts of being almost continuously raided and invaded for over 1000 years, means that Russians have to be great and strong and dominate that Eurasian space in order to have any kind of decent civilization worthy of the name.

            America can be used from time to time by particular elites to serve their interests, but people like her go too far in saying that those interests are ‘American’ ones-“tell that to the working people whose factory jobs were shipped out of America, lady”, is what i’d reply to her….

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            True, but at any rate, I have every confidence that America and Russia will be just fine. A nation that foments trouble between the two is just asking for it

            Indeed. They’d be squashed.

            Millions of us are cheering for Russia in its fight against the Saracens and the Eurotrash. Sorry to say, we have senile and possibly drugged up senators and Congress critters dying for a war against Russia. McCain, Waters, Warren, Pelosi, McConnell are among the biggest warmongering clowns, with a host of globalist media moguls itching for bloodshed. And we know about the deep state, which is behind the violent unrest in the Mideast, Central America and possibly the US. Anyone remember FAST AND FURIOUS? But 63 Million voted for the same Witch that had a huge hand in the Libyan and Syrian genocide and refugee flood. And ole Hillary is also a supporter of the Black Lives Matter/MoveOn/Direct Action terrorists.

            I have shut off the cable subscription, as I loathe deceit and sleaze. And I am not interested in baseballs and drug commercials. As long as we have Shoebat.com and other alternatives, we will keep our sanity.

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            All very true, David. But actions are what count, and the slow encirclement of Russia and China, the two primary Antifascist forces in this world, by the West and other forces, is what is most troubling. Those jackasses you spoke of, they have no idea what they’d be getting the world into, the chickenhawk chickens*its that they are.

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            Well, honestly, I don’t think the Russians have much to worry about from the likes of McCain or Warren or the others you mention, among others. I imagine that one of the benefits of inheriting the machinery of government from the old Soviet Union, for a regular normal Russian Nationalist regime, were all those files of traitors, mercenaries, perverts, and useful idiots compiled over the years, from overseas political and religious figures….

            Something that these Clowns should stop and think about before they rail against Russia. The Russians know what kind of scum the Communists employed for their purposes.

        • filomena seiffert

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            Wait. They are still weapons, and weapons not used are useless. The Third Reich would have used them (which is why Patton headed in the direction of Prague and not Berlin, telling his officers that the Allies could still lose the war…), and the Fourth Reich certainly will use them. It’s not their use, it’s who uses them.

      • CharlesMartel

        2001: the US invades Afghanistan to bring democracy and women’s rights there. Result: 16 years later, the US and its NATO allies are still at war, with no end in sight. 2003: the US invades Iraq on the basis of lies about WMDs. Result: about 1 million Iraqi dead, and Iraq’s Christian community reduced from about 1.5 million to less than 400,000. 2011: the US and its lackeys (France and Great Britain) help a merry gang of terrorists overthrow Qaddafi. Result: one of the most prosperous nations in northern Africa is reduced to a failed state with ISIS/Al Qaeda in charge of wide swathes of territory, and Ethiopian Christians get beheaded on a beach. 2011: the US starts arming terrorists in Syria to overthrow its secular government protecting Christians. Result: 500,000+ dead, 10 million refugees, and Syria’s Christian community reduced to naught. 2014: the US helps violent demonstrators overthrow democratically elected president Yanukovich in Ukraine (this is Russia’s backyard, and the cradle of Russian civilization). Result: an interminable war of brother against brother between Ukrainians and Russians.

        All powerful nations engage in imperialism to some extent. But there is no other nation on the planet that bullies, bombs, invades (directly or by terrorist proxy) like the US. US wars in the Middle East have killed millions in the last 15 years, and helped spread terrorism like wildfire (under the pretext of fighting terrorists – hard to do when the US arms them). Russia has done none of that, and has opposed all these wars. And remember, it’s not Russia that overthrew the Canadian government to install a pro-Russian regime there (USA did the equivalent by overthrowing the legitimate Ukrainian government).

    Everybody has ulterior motives here, including the U.S. The neo-cons, the alt-right, and the hawks desperately want Trump out and want the U.S. to maintain an anti-Russia stance, as do all the liberal leftists. Great analysis of Germany’s muruna especially their opportunistic grab at African nations.

    The U.S., with what remaining but flagging influence it retains over Great Britain, should target one of these African nations-maybe Ghana-for infrastructure development of: electricity, water supply, sanitation, and roads in exchange for a share in oil rights. But that is a pipedream, given the British and American NGOs packaging help with sanitary pads, contraception, and abortion assistance, disguised as medical care. Obama wasted an opportunity to revive the Peace Corps, although some insufficient efforts have been made by groups like “Engineers Without Borders”, and development of small local businesses like “Envirofit” which makes cookstoves and innovative portable solar chargers like “Waka-Waka”. (Regarding sanitary pads, perhaps a tacky thing to speak of, but look up a 2014 BBC article (still available) called ” The Indian sanitary pad revolutionary” on Arunachalam Muruganantham’s invention to help women’s groups manufacture their own. There is also a Ted lecture on YouTube)…

    But, perhaps a bigger reason for U.S. and Great Britain’s loss of Ghana is the Ghanian-German Economic Association for building, construction, and real estate development. Accra real estate has priced out even their own middle-class and the smart citizens, not committed to their own country, flee to Europe and the U.S. following the Protestant mega-preachers of the prosperity gospel and their strong foothold. Even members of Ghana’s soccer team have tried to flee. Could France align with the U.S. and Great Britain rather than Germany?

  • DeusLoVult

    So what? It was a military target and we dropped flyers warning them to leave both times. We didn’t even have to do that. Both you and filomena ignore Japanese war crimes. They murdered tens of thousands of Chinese and Korean people. How very Christian of you to deny that. I loathe people like you passionately. Yes, they deserved what they got. You reap what you sow.

  • DeusLoVult

    “Russia has done none of that, and has opposed all these wars.”

    No, Russia had its own empire called the Soviet Union, which murdered millions of people.

    Russia meddles in everyone else’s affairs as much as we do. They simply don’t have the resources to achieve the same level of effectiveness. It’s not for lack of trying.

    • filomena seiffert

    • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

      Russia wasn’t exactly the Soviet Union, not entirely, and before that it was an Empire under the Tsars. Even given the facts about the Soviet Union, it was a different place after 1941, morphing back slowly into a reborn Russia.

      • DeusLoVult

        Come now, OA, they were murdering hundreds of thousands long after 1941 had come and gone. And Russia was the head of the Soviet Union, that’s what counts to me.

        • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

          The Soviet archives which opened up after the Soviet collapse tell a different story, but no matter.

          Russia was so to speak, the first and foremost of the countries which the Christ-Hating Bolsheviks occupied, in the most ferocious persecution known since the beginning of the World, to blot out the Name of God and of His Christ from the hearts and minds of the Christ-Bearing Russian people.

          Today is the feast day of the Saints of Russia…

          And the very word for ‘Peasant’ in Russian is ‘Krest’yanskiy’…

          ”Christian”

          • DeusLoVult

            They couldn’t have seized power without the help of the Russian people. Granted, they had a different idea of what the Bolsheviks would do. Nevertheless…I’m simply making a point to the fool above.

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            I understand, but there was a Russian Civil War, and the good guys lost, betrayed by the Western liberal elites that betray us to this day.

            The people suffered plenty in reparation.

            You know what I find funny? It’s something Farage pointed out in one of his speeches. The Communists were never destroyed, they simply moved to the West to reform the old order. The European Union….you were talking about how naive Americans are. Really, it’s Western peoples as a whole.

          • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

            Yes, the Trotskyite wing of the Bolsheviks, they went West and spread like a cancer, mutating and hybridizing on the Left with the ‘Frankfort School’ of change agents, and on the ‘Right’ with the followers of Leo Strauss.

  • DeusLoVult

    “But the civilians in Hiroshima and Nagasaki were not responsible for the barbarous act of the military dictatorship that ruled them.”

    The steelworks that were there provided critical materiel support for the Japanese military. That was the target. And we hit it. And they surrendered. Spare me the argument that civilians aren’t responsible. They happily supported Japan’s military expansion. Just like Germany’s citizens.

    “Also, as I tried to explain to you, good old USA dropped the atom bomb bang on top of the largest Christian cathedral in Asia.”

    How accurate do you really believe an unguided nuclear weapon is? Do you really think that was intentional? Does that even make sense?

    “An eye for an eye, murdering civilians to avenge their leaders’ crimes, how very Christian of you.”

    Do heads of state act alone? Absolutely not. Everyone who supported their regime is guilty by default. A good Christian destroys evil. And, as I previously stated, WE WARNED THEM. They did not listen. But since you’re so concerned with the inhabitants of the execrable Japanese Empire, did you ever once pause to dust the cobwebs off your brain and ponder the only other alternative to dropping those bombs?

    Your logic is as ridiculous as filomena’s. And you state it so pompously. If that’s the best reason you have that we should avoid destroying a vital military asset, then I don’t know what to tell you. It’s the most blatant and asinine appeal to emotion I’ve ever ever read.

    • People should know that in any war innocent people die but this does not mean that certain wars are unjustified. Bombing Japan was necessary.

    “The Soviet Union is gone. It collapsed 25 years ago, but it appears you have not noticed.”

    You said Russia has never done any of the above mentioned. Clearly, they have.

    “Post-Communist Russia is not responsible for the crimes of Communism.”

    But Communist Russia was. Why is it okay to exclude them?

    “No other country on the planet has that kind of track record.”

    LOL You don’t read much, do you? How about [email protected] Germany? How many people did they kill? How about France? Napoleon obliterated all of Europe in about 15 years. You can read about eh British Empire and find similar endeavors.

    “a track record few countries can match”

    Nonsense. Almost any nation can. Russia has been to war dozens upon dozens of times. Almost nonstop. A basic search can reveal this since you’re too lazy to do that.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wars_involving_Russia

    Look at the timeline. It’s almost constant. Germany looks similar.

    You are shockingly uneducated. You’re not related to filomena by any chance, are you?

  • DeusLoVult

    Your entire argument is built on the fallacy of exclusion. You are attacking the US as though its behavior is uniquely American when it clearly is not. Every developed nation has engaged in this behavior, whether in the past or present. The US is serving its interests in the ME. Russia is doing likewise in Syria, allied with Iran. (who arms terrorist organizations, by the way) France and Germany are in Mali. Everyone is out to expand their influence.

    “Talking about the present era, which is what interests us, there is no other country bombing an invading other countries like the USA.”

    No you weren’t. You referred to all of US military history and then compared it to the military history of other nations. And I rebutted you on the matter.

  • David W

    And the Chinese have their own problems with the Turkic Muslims in their western provinces. They deal swiftly with the throat-cutters. Sadly they also persecute Christians. But the Christian population is growing, to where 60-80 Million follow Christ. It may be higher.

  • I must say that much of what you say does make sense. If people only understood that Christianity is not “patriotism” or “the state”, we the Catholics and Orthodox would all get along much better. But this does not mean when we are attacked lets say at Pearl Harbor to stop being patriots either.

  • DeusLoVult

    “France is in Mali fighting terrorists there with the full consent of the Malian government.”

    LOL You don’t really believe that, do you?

    “Likewise, Russia is in Syria at the request of the legitimate government there. ”

    But that’s not why they’re there. They’re not there for the Christians. It’s all about influence.

    “he fact that you need to recount the horrors of Napoleon 200 years ago or Hitler and Stalin 80 years ago to show that the US is a normal country proves the point.”

    You imply that other countries are different but that is simply not the case, as I have shown again and again. I noticed you ignored my other argument with you because your position is ridiculous and you can’t defend it. You’re not worth my time.

  • DeusLoVult

    “You proudly present your catholic badge next to your name, but your words make the claim sound false.”

    Let me tell you something…I don’t care what you think about me. You don’t know me, and I don’t know you. And if I were you, I wouldn’t be jumping to conclusions so quickly. Now, onto your claims.

    “Yes, our government is a jealous one.”

    It’s not jealousy. That’s not the reason. It’s greed. Like all politicians, they are never satisfied with what they have. What we have is better than any other country in the world, materially speaking. That’s not bragging, it’s a fact. But, it’s never enough for people in power. They will ALWAYS want more power. It doesn’t matter what nation you bring up. It’s a desire ubiquitous among all governments.

    “Your defence of American Imperialism is really a gem.”

    It’s not a defense. You are inferring far too much from my comment. Nowhere did I say it was okay. I simply accept that all nations will engage in conquest no matter who leads them or how Christian the people are. If we elect good people, we can delay it and attenuate its impact, but we can never stop it. The history of every nation ever founded proves this beyond question. This is why I become aggravated when people single out the US, or any one nation in particular and accuse them of imperialism, because they ALL engage in it. It’s not complacency…it’s a realist approach with a dose of cynicism and skepticism. I don’t look to any nation as a paradigm of Christian ethics.

    People like filomena are blind to the evil of other nations. They focus only on the US of A. And instead of praying for our hearts to change, they curse us. Do you curse this nation, or do you pray for it?

    Yes, we’ve destabilized many nations (with some help from a few other countries along the way) and caused millions of people to die. I don’t deny this. I’m ashamed at what we have done to control the ME. But that’s not going to make me jump on the “US is responsible for every evil ever committed” bandwagon. Nor do I cheer her on while she tears up the planet and helps it descend into chaos. If the day ever comes when America abandons all Christian qualities, I’ll gladly help tear her down. Until then, I’ll be doing my part to fix her. Make sense?

  • DeusLoVult

    “I consider loudly and clearly denouncing our government when it engages in immoral acts on a large scale as part of “doing my part to fix her”.”

    I agree.

    And I understand how you feel. Our politicians do work for us, but they have long since forgotten that. It’s only when they cause so much outrage it endangers their chances of reelection that they suddenly ‘remember’ who they work for and at least pretend to listen. I do think one problem is that people don’t hold them accountable. We should be calling them, sending them letters, personally insisting that they do their jobs and communicating what we the people want. I do believe most people do not exercise that privilege. (me included) I don’t know how much of a difference it would make, but I do believe it would be positive. As it is, they are disconnected from the common man.

    Well, I don’t know about Israel’s involvement in the matter, (not that their government is good by any stretch) but, he has to ‘play the game’, unfortunately. He’s an outsider, and the career government people hate him. I wouldn’t want to spend a day in his shoes.

    “finish the destruction of Syria, then kill of Iran, so the Saudis and Israel will have no regional competition and Russia can be put in a weakened position.”

    If Iran were to go, I believe Saudi Arabia would immediately renew its hateful rhetoric against Israel. They will always despise Jews, but they are silent now that they are threatened with annihilation by a common enemy. Muslims hate each other more than they hate Jews.

  • DeusLoVult

    “Your own link states that France is in Mali with the full request of the Malian government, as per my point.”

    It states that they are not there to fight terrorists. They are there for the resources, whether they have ‘consent’ or not. Consent is no measure of moral behavior.

    “While Russia has undoubted strategic interests in Syria, its intervention there (at the request of the government) has saved Syria’s Christians from destruction.”

    So, its incidental good? And that makes them better? I don’t think so.

    “destroyed the country’s stability and eradicated its Christian population.”

    I don’t deny that, although the death of Christians was not intentional. I never once said what we did was good.

    “Funny that you need to bring up dictators of 80 years ago to prove that USA is a normal country. Soviet Russia or Nazi Germany: that is the standard by which USA is compared.”

    I used them to compare the scale of slaughter, and to refute your claim that “no country has a track record like that” which is absurd. Germany and the Soviet Union (with Russia at the head) committed evils that far surpass the US…and that’s saying something. People should condemn our government for their evil ways. But to look at any other traditionally Christian nation and say that they are better is simply not true on the whole. That’s my final word. I’m tired of this argument. A week of it is enough.
