American Dreaming, Kremlin Style

A few Republicans in the U.S. Congress are finally willing to admit to themselves, and more importantly to the world, what so many have refused to face until now with regard to their populist faction’s opposition to offering any further aid to Ukraine, and to House Speaker Mike Johnson’s newfound willingness to concede the need for some form of Ukraine package. As Texas...

News Roundup

Fake climate activist Greta Thunberg has been fake arrested at a fake protest again. Watching her — the most famous youngster on the planet — being picked up and pulled away from the street she was sitting on by police, while her fellow “protesters” simply watch the proceedings passively, without any of them moving a finger to object to her removal, and while...

Okay, America Has Died and Gone to Hell

Here is a clip from a recent interview of presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., directly blaming the West for the war in Ukraine while voluntarily turning himself into Vladimir Putin’s number one American propagandist, supplanting even Tucker Carlson. NEW and very disturbing: Straight out of Putin’s talking points and out of RFK Jr.’s mouth — here he is saying Putin merely wanted...

Telltale Sign of Putin’s Western Apologists

Listen to Elon Musk talking about the “tragic loss of life” in Ukraine that could be ended if only the Ukrainian government would concede its losses and sit down to negotiate with Russia, because a happy Russia is a profitable Russia. Listen to Senator Mike Lee, a former freedom-pitching politician who, having sold his soul to Donald Trump’s cult of populist demagoguery for...

Random Reflections: Pleasures, Parochialisms, Politics

Life in spite of everything.— A Turkish proverb: “One already wet does not feel the rain.” From which it follows that if you can withstand five seconds of discomfort, undesirable conditions ought to be no barrier. Waste not, want not.— A student’s question: “Why shouldn’t I follow a cheap pleasure?” The answer: “Because it leads you into the habit of more and more...

The Ides of March, Russian Style

As we are now on the eve of Russia’s latest fake election — which will, amusingly enough, be held on the Ides of March — I would like to recommend a short opinion piece written by journalist Vladimir Kara-Murza, whose mentor Boris Nemtsov was murdered by Vladimir Putin in 2015, and who is himself currently in prison on a charge of treason, which...

Limbo More Than Ever

I have been absent from Limbo for longer than usual, due to the death of my father. Needless to say, a lot of noteworthy events have occurred in the world of public significance during my absence, but — also needless to say — nothing really substantial has changed. A brief roundup of what I have observed, unsurprisingly, upon my return to the real...

Reflections On Current Events

If Ukraine loses its war of survival against a scheming KGB autocrat after all this devastation and bloodshed, the loss and its inevitable global implications will be entirely on the heads of those tens of millions of Americans who pretend to want to make America great again, which fake goal they propose to accomplish by electing the most corrupt and ignorant man ever...

Over There, Over There

One of the U.S. Democratic Party’s leading propaganda outlets, MSNBC, is blithely reporting today, in this new year of our Election Lord 2024, that: a Politico report indicates that the Biden administration is quietly shifting away from backing Ukraine’s bid for total victory. Instead, the White House is now thinking about how to best position Ukraine for negotiations that are likely to lead to territorial...

The Winner of the Cold War

In 2012, Barack Obama directly told Dmitry Medvedev to beg the latter’s leash-holder, “Vladimir,” to be patient until after Obama’s upcoming “last election,” at which time he, Obama, “would have more flexibility” with regard to accommodating Putin’s wishes on (Russian) defense matters. In 2014, Putin occupied Crimea, a direct and overt violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty, in response to which Obama did exactly nothing....
