It Is A Well-Known Fact...

 ... that Obama's uncle liberated Auschwitz, while Western Allies captured Berlin. 

Translation: MOSCOW, April 18 – RIA Novosti. The Russian Embassy in Berlin received a notice that it is undesirable for Russian officials to participate in commemorative events on the occasion of the 79th anniversary of the liberation of concentration camp prisoners, said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.

There is no need to discuss Zakharova's response, because I write in this blog for 10 years now about unrelenting rewriting and falsifying of history of WW II by the West. E.g. as was noted on many occasions before, professionally respected by me Colonel Macgregor continues to spread what amounts to Nazi propaganda about the Red Army and USSR in WW II having absolutely no background in real history of WW II other than cherry picking dubious (Norman Davis, anyone) sources and anecdotal "evidence" from whatever the environment of Baltic or Ukrainian people he grew up with. I am on record--Russia must repatriate remains of Red Army soldiers buried anywhere in Europe, especially Germany, and remove the monument in Treptower Park and bring it back to Russia. The generation of Western Allies who fought heroically in WW II is pretty much gone now and there is no need in trying to convince the West about who and how defeated Nazism. 

Small minority of Europeans who know the truth makes no difference whatsoever in public opinion and they will continue to know anyway because this is what normal people do. The rest, who cares--it is over for the West anyway and the trajectory to oblivion is well defined. The break between Russia and the West is final and, as was pointed out by me on many occasions, a traditional Russophobia of Europeans, always near the surface, was released by Washington and as this proverbial genie it is now out of the bottle. This is THE point--these are not just "elites", this is the majority of population. Modern Western "values" are incompatible with Russian values which are effectively Christian conservative values and NO, so called American "Christian conservatives" are not really conservatives in their outlook. 

A move away from conducting financial transactions through Western payment systems, including SWIFT, is vital for Russia and its trading partners, the head of the country’s second-largest lender has said. Speaking on Thursday at the Data Fusion 2024 conference, VTB CEO Andrey Kostin called for the promotion of digital financial settlements in Russia and allied nations. Such a step would end the dominance of the dollar and gain full sovereignty in the financial sector, he claimed. “SWIFT has announced plans to carry out digital payments soon, but we need to kill SWIFT in our settlements, we need to completely get away from it and involve our partners in this as well,” the banking executive insisted, highlighting major work that is being done by the Bank of Russia to achieve the goal. According to Kostin, VTB is currently working on a pilot project to bring the digital ruble into general use, including in cross-border payments.

This is just one sign out of many which testify to an ongoing decoupling of Russia from West's political and economic institutions. Cultural will follow, because true European culture has been already largely transplanted onto Russian soil. Classic and best of modern European culture lives and thrives in Russia. The rest is trash and shouldn't be allowed in. The Iron Curtain is in order and it is Russia now who begins to erect it.

About A Half-Year Ago...

 ... my daughter was doing this production with famous bands like Shitty Beatles and Fucked Up Taylor Swift--you know, for retards--so off she goes backstage and she runs into this unknown guy. So they talk about music and he shows her some guitar licks and she is like--dude, you cannot even play guitar, look at this dude who plays guitar for Lizzo... Nah, I am fucking with you)))...

I asked her if she did this: 
We laughed... no, they had a good exchange, like professionals do. Speaking about it--who is this guy? I remember him playing some guitar for bands which will never be in the same league as... Nirvana;)))

You Know What?

Fuck it. I am not flying Boeing products other than 747 and 757 anymore. I had it. As much as I view Europe with contempt, at least Airbus makes good planes. For now. 

A Boeing quality engineer went public Tuesday with damaging allegations that the jet-maker took manufacturing shortcuts to increase production rates that leave potentially serious structural flaws on its 787 and 777 widebody planes. The Boeing engineer, Sam Salehpour, alleged that almost 1,000 787s and about 400 777s currently flying are at risk of premature fatigue damage and structural failure. On Jan. 19, lawyers for Salehpour wrote a letter detailing his allegations to Mike Whitaker, head of the Federal Aviation Administration. The agency said Tuesday it is investigating the claims. “We thoroughly investigate all safety reports,” FAA spokesperson Ian Gregor said. Salehpour will speak next week at a Senate hearing convened by Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., “to examine Boeing’s broken safety culture, focusing on firsthand accounts.” Boeing said it is in discussions and will cooperate with Blumenthal’s committee and has “offered to provide documents, testimony, and technical briefings.”

This is from Seattle Times. The US literally begins to cease as a functional society, Europe is already there. Will they suicide this guy too? This is what financial economy--meaning "capitalization" fraud and BS taught in economics programs--does to society. Luddites fought "technology", will we live to see stock brokers and "financial advisers" be subjected to the same fate? Remember this, though?

The country literally sinks, or comes apart at the seams--whatever one prefers. In related news--the guy certainly is not a dummy and knows where the future is:

For those who are interested--search the term "Limita" (Лимита), Russians are having a field day with this one, LOL))). And why not?  Plus, Moscow smells with good food, nice perfumes and flowers. It is safe and clean. Beats any European or US city. Yeah, sure, we all know that every attractive Russian woman is a spy but read the article--it is fun. A good fodder for brainwashed UK public loving their tabloids. I will abstain from repeating a good ol' joke why Brits were good sailors... something about their food and wives;))

Elliptical Orbits...

 ... for common man. 

Open Thread.

Busy now. Go at it.
