Obama Backs The Ukrainian Nazis: At Your Throat or At Your Feet

March 7, 2014

There’s an old saying about Nazis that Barack Obama seems to have forgotten or never heard: Nazis, they’re either at your throat or at your feet. By backing the new Nazi so-called “Government” of the Svoboda Party and the Right Sektor in Kiev, President Obama has committed one of the greatest political mistakes of this century so far, and it is truly disgusting, but not surprising, to see the sickening hypocrisy of Obama, John Kerry, and Ms. Rodham as they carry out this destabalization of Russia’s border region by bringing to power, and endorsing, a regime with racist values so sickening, that they are fit for the KKK. In America, anyone who exhibits the slightest racism is condemned by the Democrats as some unspeakable horror, but here they are staunchly supporting a bunch of Jew-hating, and Russian-hating racists.

The following excellent article by Prof. Mark Chussodovsky not only lists the proofs for the assertion that this is a Nazi regime, but also proves it with photos. Here is the Racist Tanybuk giving the Nazi salute, and here is a beaming Nuland standing smiling with the Nazi racist Scum. Obama has legitimized Fascism, and here is the proof.

The BBC too finally did a report on the Nazi elements in Svoboda and Right Sektor, interviewing the head of a militia that is tied to the Svoboda party. He blamed Ukraines problems on the economic control of the economy by “Russians, Jews, and Poles”. So we can see what is coming. These racist divisionists, who breed discord and hate in society, now control the Defense Ministry and five top cabinet posts in the regime, and you can be sure they will follow the same plan as the Nazis did in Germany when they took over. Anyone wanting to know in detail how this was done should read the vital work, “The Nazi Seizure of Power” by William Sheridan Allen, published by Franklin Webb, inc., 1973. In this work, Allen describes how the Nazis took over a medium-sized German town, mainly by getting all the Socialists, Social Democrats, and anyone who opposed them fired. Part of the reason they took over too was the namby-pamby whimpish resistance of the Socialists and Social Democrats in comparison to the fanaticism of the Nazis. The Ukrainian Nationalist Nazis plan to eliminate many government positions in the name of saving money and purging corrupt officials, but you can be sure that the axe will fall on ethnic Russian, Jews, Poles, and Communists. The Nazis will control the cops; they will be the cops, and they ain’t going to stop there. These Nazis want violence, and anyone who thinks they will not exhibit their violence once they’re in power should watch the BBC report on them.

The following informative posts by anti-Fascist Historian Dave Emory, in addition to those of his we mentioned in our previous post, also round out the picture of the Nazi stink in Kiev that the Western media is ignoring. The Confederate Stars and Bars is now disgustingly displayed in Kiev Square, and Peace Street has been renamed after the mass murder’s Nazi batallion. Thanks, Obama. You’ve stabbed the Nazi’s 40 million victims in the back, and condoned and encouraged the modern Skinhead movement, while managing to re-inflame the long-embered Cold War.

As you know from previous posts, Silverwolf is no lover of Vladimir Putin, but in this case, we think he is right. The deposed democratically-elected President has been overthrown by mobs of anarchists; he carried over 70% of the vote in Crimea and close to that in the East according to the BBC map of how Ukraine voted, and here are a bunch of racist Nazis threatening Russians, Jews, and Poles. They murder six cops in the demonstrations. They rename a street after the batallion that fought with the Germans and carried out mass murder of Poles and Jews, they daub Nazi slogans on a statue of Lenin, and wear the armbands of the OUN/B Ukrainian Nationalists who fought with Hitler, but Obama and the West and the Western Media are completely silent, showing how deeply corrupt is the Democratic Party, the West in general, and the Western news media.

Silverwolf watched Putin addressing the press, and it was the first time he’d ever watched him during an interview. One noticed the animation of his visage as he went through an entire series of facial movements, while he sounded like he was talking rather calmly. He pointed out the hypocrisy of the Americans, and explained that a democratically-elected President who had been violently deposed had asked for his intervention, that there were close cultural, ethnic, and economic ties to the Russian population in Ukraine, and he intended to go in and protect those people if they were threatened or killed.

President Obama seems to have no inkling whatsoever of the psychological impact  in Russia of having 20 million of their people murdered in Hitler’s war, and the rage that must be welling up in people who have heard from their grandparents and parents what the Germans, with the aid of their Ukrainian OUN/B allies, did during World War II. Obama seems to have huge lapses of judgement that make him a real liability as President. We always thought that a man who could attend for twenty years a congregation that gave its man of the year award to the racist and Jew-baiter, Louis Farrakhan, must be either very callous, very dull, or a crypto-anti-Semite. Maybe he’s all three?

Obama has managed to rekindle the Cold War in order to destabilize a democratically-elected regime. If Yanukovich was corrupt, and he sure was, he should have been tried and jailed, as would have happened in an orderly, democratic or republican society with a Bill of Rights. But he was overthrown by a mob led by racist Nazis, and Vladimir Putin is not going to sit around with his finger up his ear and let the Nazis destabilize his Western borders. And by the way, if Obama is such a lover of Democracy, why does he object to Crimea holding a referendum on whether to join Russia or not? We’re told the Crimea is an “autonomous region” within Ukraine, so if they are truly autonomous, why should they not vote democratically on their future? If Obama truly believed in Democracy, he would endorse this referendum. But he’s as wooden and robotic as George Dubbyah; just another immoral politican.

Unfortunately, it’s just a matter of time we think before the Nazi stink starts rising from Kiev and its environs. At your throat or at your feet is no empty observation.

Barack Obama, John Kerry, and Hilary Clinton have revived the Nazi State, to their great shame, and the misery of all the non-Nazis in the Ukraine. They will regret it, and be damned and reviled when the final history of Fascism and Nazism is written.

Obama Backs Ukrainian Fascists While Putin Gets One Right

March 2, 2014

You have to wonder at the stupidity of Barack Obama, as he threatens Russia by backing the remnants of the OUN/B Ukrainian Nazis who fought with Hitler in WWII and carried out the genocide of the Ukrainian Jews. The virulent Jew-hatred of these new Nazis is evident by their many public statements, some pronounced in the Parliament. Anti-Fascist Historian Dave Emory has done a capital job at documenting the links between the old OUN/B Nazis and the modern “protest” movement in the Ukraine, and the posts listed below provide that documentation.

One wonders how the U.S. Federal Marshals and SWAT teams would have reacted if racist mobs stormed and burned Federal Government buildings, burned alive and murdered Federal Marshals and National Guardsmen, and tried to stage a coup in one of the Fifty U.S. States. Say too that it came out that the overthrowers of our U.S. democratically-elected government were receiving funds from the Soviet Union, as the Ukrainian movement has received funds from the U.S. A.I.D. program, and that a top advisor to the Russian President had been intercepted in a phone conversation saying whom they thought should be installed in power after that State’s government had been overthrown. One wonders how the American Public would have reacted if the news got out that Russia, or Saudi Arabia, or Japan were backing the anarchists with money, and had had secret cables intercepted telling whom they wanted put into power after the overthrow of the government. Obama can dish it out, but you wonder how he would take that.

You should watch some of the footage of these anarchists setting policemen on fire, and beating them with wooden clubs, setting up catapaults to launch Molotov Cocktails, metal projectiles, and paving stones into the police lines, and spraying the police with who-knows-what. How would such treatment be tolerated by, say, the L.A.P.D. that beat Rodney King?

Certainly the government these people were trying to overthrow was a corrupt regime, as is Russia itself, and unfortunately as are most countries around the world, almost 240 years after Thomas Jefferson’s Glorious Revolution, as Glorious in its way as Oliver Cromwell’s, which put a stop to absolute tyrannical Monarchy, that accursed institution. (However, England now wears it well, and even Lord Bertrand Russell supported the Monarchy, on the grounds that it was a sort of Fourth Estate, that could express its opinion if it didn’t approve of the way government was running England, and carry a lot of weight with the public. In other words, the modern Monarchy was a further check on absolute power by any one branch of government.) And it looked like the government used snipers to deliberately murder demonstrators who were not immediately threatening any police. But after the burning, beatings, and murder of other police officers, it’s little wonder they resorted to murderous force. After all, this is Ukraine and Russia, not Mayberry with Andy Griffith and Don Knotts as cops. Russia lost 20 million because of Hitler and his Ukrainian allies. They haven’t forgotten that fact like Obama has.

However, it’s obvious that the Democrat Obama is backing a bunch of Racists that would be right at home in the Ol’ Mississippi and Alabam of the pre-1960s; Racists and xenophobes whose neo-Nazi philosophy would fit right in with the KKK. This is well documented in Historian Emory’s latest posts on spitfirelist.com, http://spitfirelist.com/. the first two giving historical documentation of the Nazi roots and xenophobia of the protest movement, and the last the most recent post as we write, and as the BBC reports the Ukrainian Army on alert. This information is critical in seeing the situation in its true light, and not as just a Libertarian Free Speech movement going up against Clark Kerr at U.C. Berkeley, or the police riot of the Democrat Criminal, Mayor Richard Daley, and his Chicago police, clubbing Vietnam War Protesters, while War Criminal Democrat Hubert Humphrey spoke to the Democratic Convention. Here are Emory’s documentary posts on the Neo-Nazis that Obama is supporting with U.S. Taxpayer’s dollars: http://spitfirelist.com/news/the-ideology-and-electoral-gravitas-of-swoboda-ukrainian-heirs-to-the-ounb/,http://spitfirelist.com/news/more-on-ounb-influence-on-the-ukrainian-political-opposition/, http://spitfirelist.com/news/ukraine-update-pierre-omidyar-glenn-greenwalds-financial-angel-helped-finance-coup-swedish-neo-nazi-milieu-of-carl-lundstrom-assisting-ounb-heirs/,

And you thought they were Libertarian Saints.

If these Nazis are allowed to overthrow and establish their own racist government by force, it will be the first time in the Western World since the days of the Segregationist South that a far-Right Nazi power has held sway over an entire country or huge region. There was no law in the old South, but Robert Kennedy busted that all apart. This is a return to that Old South, and Obama is so limited in vision, that he can’t see that incredibly significant fact. It is a return to the Dark Age of Segregation, of Racism, and its ultimate crime against Libertarianism, Slavery.

What a nerve Obama has to threaten Russia. Russia may be a cesspool of corruption, of police torture with impunity, of anti-Libertarian laws against Gays, of xenophobia and anti-Semitism, and Putin is a War Criminal without doubt for his actions in Syria and transfering weapons to the Hezballah terrorist Racists via Iran, but on this issue he is right to flex the Russian military as a deterrent to the Ukrainian Nazis, and it’s pretty obvious that in Eastern Ukraine and the Crimea, the people overwhelmingly want to keep their ties with Russia. Maybe they can see how miserable life in the  racist EU is, and they like the perks of aligning with Russia. Living under Putin would be much better than living under Hitler, or one of his Bandera proxies.

So Obama and Nuland can plot regime change with their favorite Nazis and threaten Russia, and Obama can talk of “peaceful engagement with the opposition”, much as Neville Chamberlain did, with the result of 40 million murdered, while at the same time that Fascist-lover Hypocrite in the White House can maintain his embargo of Cuba, because of its ties with Russia. What a double standard, and what an illustration of the President’s lack of brains. He may be the clever lawyer, but he has no wisdom, or seemingly no awareness of the political impact of his actions and words.

And now he backs Nazi Racists. What a shower.

The Paranoia of Absolute Power: From King John to Modern America

June 26, 2013

It seems that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were, unfortunately, dead right. ‘Twould be much better if absolute power made the Chief into a benevolent angel, using his power for moral ends, to better the lives of the people in one way or another, if only to get out of their way.

In the future perfect Capitalist society, where the industrious will happily work at their callings, and be materially rewarded for it, and those who wanted little but the freedom to wander, or write poetry, could go to voluntary welfare societies set up by Capitalists who believed in Socialism, — in that society there will be no coercion. One Capitalist may be greedy, but another Capitalist may be a Socialist who thinks that  everyone is entitled to the basics of food (vegan of course), clothing, and shelter. The Socialist-believing Capitalist could donate, or set up himself,  a charity, and set the rules according to his Moral Views. Such a man might agree with Erich Fromm”s argument for Socialism, once made in an interview with Los Angeles television reporter Jerry Dunphy,: “You don’t expect your dog to work. But you feed him. I think a man should be treated as well as a dog.”

Such an argument carries much weight with Silverwolf. But it presupposes and forgets two facts: Firstly, while I may feel compassionate enough to give a meal to a hungry man, the next fellow on the block may not feel the same way, and I don’t have the right to impose my moral beliefs on my neighbor. As a Libertarian, I am only concerned with his actions; and that those actions do not constitute a violation of the Libertarian non-aggression axiom: No man or group of men may aggress against the Person or Property of another man. Such an aggression is regarded by the Libertarian as “invasion”, and it is. Such an invasion is a Crime against the Property Rights of that Man, and since we own our bodies, an attack on our persons is also technically a violation of Property Rights.

Secondly, the Socialist argument above flounders in the face of the fact that by confiscating, or voting to confiscate from my neighbor, money or “taxes” to fund my own personal Socialistic moral views, I am committing an act of Violence against my neighbor, which in itself, is a form of treating a Man like a dog, the very argument used above to justify Socialism.

So, what are we to do in the face of this inconsistency between Capitalism and Socialism?

To Silverwolf the answer lies in a radically free-Capitalist free-market society, where 95% of all people had voluntarily, through no coercion, found something they loved or liked to do, and so there would be a vast Middle Class. Some people, who for their own personal reasons, wanted to accumulate truly vast amounts of Capital and Wealth, could go ahead and do so, but most people would be satisfied with a type of upper class-Middle Class life, choosing leisure and amusement over passion-driven, fanatical accumulation. Emelda Marcoses could accumulate 700 pairs of shoes if they liked, but most sane people would settle for three to seven. More than that would become encumberences to all but the collector.

In this Free-Market  prosperous Free Society, with Thomas Jefferson’s Bill of Rights rigorously enforced, a certain percentage of people would be inclined to give to charity, which would, in turn, support those who were completely physically disabled, like someone in an iron lung, or those who wanted to live completely outwardly indolent lives, but focus all their energy on the Inner Life. These would be called Philosophers and Poets, but the Philosophers and Poets would know that if the people ever became hardened enough, they might stop giving to charity, and then the Philosophers and Poets would have to deal with a precarious situation.

All these arguments are pretty academic now that we live in a world where, given the capacities of our factories, everyone could easily be given a daily ration of grains and beans, a few Mao Suits to wear during the year, and a tent that could easily be Solar Heated. Mist collectors, as we recently saw reported, can now collect and condense enough water out of the air that people can survive on it in very dry climates or areas without a well. (Just the thing you need next time you break both your ankles hiking in Chemehuevi Valley, and your car battery goes dead when you try to start it.) With such condensers,  many desert areas could become livable again. Composting toilets, and the sanitary advantages of the vegan diet, or even charity built septic systems, could serve individuals or tribes when it came to the unthinkables of these few Philosophical Indigents and Poets. (But who would read them, or join in their philosophical explorations? The rest of Mankind would be busily working away at their Callings, havin’ a great ol’ time.) Some Philosophers and Poets would even be so brilliant and engrossing that their productions of Thought and Word would sell on the open- and Free-market, and they’d grow wealthy. Look at the Stones. Jagger is a Damn Good Poet.

But say we didn’t live in such a world. Say that five or ten men owned all the land in America, that they could charge a grand-a-night rent for every man, woman, and child, and since they owned all the agricultural land, they could charge a $100/lb for cornmeal and oats, those delicacies of a vegan society. Obviously people would starve to death, and there would soon be five or ten men left, and their families, and maybe some favored buddies and their concubines.

 Such circumstances of material inequality, Professor Rothbard maintained, only exist where the Crime of Land Theft has taken place in the past, as in Central and South America, and, on a local scale, in parts of the Old American West. In other words, such inequality indicates a massive violation of the Libertarian non-aggression principle, and would have to be rectified.

But in a truly Free-Market Jeffersonian Bill of Rights Society, with a vast Middle Class, no such draconian inequality would be possible. Monopolies and Trusts, though they may exist in certain markets and local economies, soon break down, as happened over and over again to the various “Trusts” in America, because of the phenomenon of the “Price Buster”, the guy in the Monopoly or Trust who starts giving secret kickbacks to favored customers in order to take advantage of the absurd price rise the Trust has created. This happened in Sugar, Kerosene, Train Freight Charges — every kind of Trust. They always went Bust. That is, until they learned to have Government help them restrict competition, from FCC licenses to Teaching Credentials to Barbers Licenses to the Screen Actors Guild, to that crucifier of Youths, the Minimum Wage Law.

So the arguments Socialists always pull out, about how a free-Market would lead back to the poverty of the 19th century and the robber barons, is absurd, and obviously a lie to justify their religion. The Industrial Revolution, as harsh and brutal as it was, had led by the 1920s to the possibility of a comfortable, Middle Class society, although still in the 1920s, 90% of Americans were poor farmers. But the momentum of prosperity was clearly there, and now in 2013 we have an absolutely incredible technological society, so complex that no individual can hope to understand it all, unlike the American Indian and the Kalahari Bushman who could completely understand their environment. They knew Everthing they needed to survive, and were Masters at it. We know nothing, except perhaps our little niche.

For example, in the future, modern  factories could easily manufacture super suits of clothes that were especially perfect for each of the four seasons. Each citizen could buy, or would be given by the Socialist charities, one or four of these suits, and that is all the clothing they would need. The suits would last a few years or decades. But the suits would probably be boring and functional, like Mao suits, as sterile and heartless as the modern bureaucratic services one sees in Great Britain, Australia, and America Northern. Only those who worked would have the capital to obtain their clothing on the free market, where they could satisfy their personal predelictions, like the late Brian Jones, or the connoisseurs of Saville Row.

One thing the anti-Capitalists don’t like to admit is that as people as a whole get wealthier, and the Middle Class grows, the number of goods and services that people want increases, providing more work or jobs, in increasingly more specialized areas, thus creating an even more prosperous society. There would be no end to this in a truly Free-Market society. In a poor society, a hungry arthritic pensioner is not going to hire someone to walk their beloved dog; in an upper-Middle Class society it is possible, and so someone who is unemployed but loves both to walk and to be with dogs, may and probably will be able to earn a wage. In a wealthy Rich society, you might even have those who specialized in walking certain breeds, or had a magical rapport with such breeds, and their wealthy arthritic owners might pay through the nose to hire such people to walk their dogs. Such walkers might become wealthy and noted celebrities, (and then there would be the profits from their book sales when they retire: “Vicious Great Danes I Have Known and Loved”).

But all this wealth, Freedom, and non-coercion is only possible if that Free Society has the Jeffersonian Bill of Rights, and it is here that we see in the Modern World the greatest threat to that great Capitalist Libertarian Society.

Sadly, very sadly for America, the fact that the two most powerful other monolithic Powers in the Modern World. who are completely anti-Libertarian in their attitudes and rule (Russia and the Old Soviet Republics, and Fascist China) and ruled by Paranoid, self-delusional Powermongers, are now in the process of being joined by the one place in the world where there still seemed to be some remaining spark of Libertarian creativity and Freedom left: The United States of America.

That was solely due to the Bill of Rights, and the fact that a large part of her economy was still in the hands of private Capitalists (the Small Businessman and the Investor). But these two Siamese twins, the Bill of Rights and Free-Market Capitalism, were dependent on one clear inalienable Right: the Right of Privacy.

It seems that when the Paranoia of Absolute Power strikes, it strikes first at this sacred, Natural Right, the Right of Privacy, the Right to be left alone if one is not violating the Libertarian Non-Aggression Axiom. This is what that beautiful thinker, Jefferson, as well as Madison and many of the others, could see so clearly, and what the modern politicians are trying to overthrow: that Beautiful Fourth Amendment.

They’ve succeeded in that overthrow of Privacy in the Totalitarian Societies, like Fascist China, and all the dozens of other unspeakable dictatorships that curse this globe, be it North Korea or Zimbabwe.

And they’ve succeeded in the castrated Socialist societies like Australia, where the Australian Board of Statistics can throw you in jail and fine you $170/day if you do not answer questions about your sex life, as we recently saw on a report. And England and the EU, where the individual is tracked and kept track of, from Birth to Death. Never his own Man, but always a cog in the Socialist Machine.

And now, thanks to the Paranoiac in the White House, and the Politicians of both Parties, this violation of the Right of Privacy is coming to America.

Sir Richard Evans, in his brilliant series of lectures on Victorian England, pointed out that it was entirely possible for a man to go through life in Victorian England without ever once having had contact or engagement with Government or the State.

Not so in Modern America, with her dog-sniffing random searches of law-abiding motorists, or Socialist Australia, or Fascist China.

When the Lords put the squeeze on King John, he was forced to cede to them with Magna Carta, and Libertarian Freedom had its first Outbreak.

But when we come to the psycopathic Criminals and Mass Murderers, Hitler and Stalin, we can see what those who achieve absolute power, by absolutely destroying Privacy, are capable of doing. And the more power they have, the more paranoid and bloodthirsty they become. It’s almost like a Law of Nature, a Law that Thomas Jefferson well understood. Go read defecting former-KGB agent Oleg Gordievsky’s great “KGB: the Inside Story”, and you will see what Absolute Power does to the men at the top, as we are now seeing in America, as it becomes more and more a bureaucratic police state, that can harass anyone who criticizes it.

The road from The Lords of England’s victory over King John with Magna Carta, to the Libertarian Jefferson’s victory over King George III with the Bill of Rights, was a long one.

The degeneration from Hitler and Stalin until today is a short one, made all the more sinister by the perversions of modern science and technology. And the Politicians are exploiting that technology to overthrow the Bill of Rights, a Bill that doesn’t talk of “balance” when it comes to Natural Rights, but “Inalienable Rights”, Rights that can never be taken away from any Human Being without violence being perpetrated.

Is Mankind to go forward into a bright upland of Prosperity, non-coercion, and Privacy, or is he to be the plaything of Socialists and Fascists like the head of Fascist China, or the sexually-prying questions of a perverted Hag like Australia’s PM, Julia Gillard?

Strangely enough, Silverwolf believes that Libertarian Man will eventually Prevail over the Fascism and Socialism of the modern Politicians at the top.

The Past As Now: The Photography of Prokudin-Gorskii

September 7, 2009

Silverwolf has just seen an amazing set of photographs that have had for him the same kind of significance as when he first saw footage of a U.S. high-altitude plane, flying so loftily above California that he could see the entire outline of the State. Then there was his first seen shot of Earth-entire, something that no philosopher before him had ever seen. What would such a viewing have done to those fertile minds?

The photographs in question are those taken by Prokudin-Gorskii of Russian scenes during the years 1907-1915. Due to some triple color technique beyond Silverwolf’s limited wolf-intellect to understand such technological magics, these photos look like they have been taken yesterday with a modern camera, the images are so sharp, and the colors so vivid. And what is so shocking is that it reveals that a century ago, things looked exactly as they look now in their reality.

Those of us weaned on black-and-white imagery of WWII, or worse, the black-and-white cum hurried-marionette footage of WWI with its notorious undercranking, have come to accept from childhood that reality prior to 1946 — the full color reality we have all known since childhood — was of a different caliber. Hitlerism, and the entire world, existed in grainy black-and-white, with fuzzy edges and bad sound quality. But not many years back now, the popularization of some of the American color footage of the War made us realize that it was not so long ago. And then the serieses in color, like America at War, and the release of many super-sharp color photos of Nazi chieftains at official events, made it seem even more temporally proximate to our own time. We stopped fooling ourselves that WWII looked different in reality from Malibu Beach 2002; yes WWII had existed in color, and the colorization made it seem less sinister.

But events a hundred years ago or more, had they really existed in color? It was impossible to believe.  Had the people in those early films really not moved like tabetic marionettes vivified by Benzarene? Of course they had. They were such evil times that men must have had to be different from the folks in “Our Town”.

Prokudin-Gorskii’s photos shatter that pleasant delusion, as they show us Russia in all its blazing glory, an incredibly beautiful land where serfs were held as slaves, and the Czar’s tyranny mulcted the poor masses. Here are young girls, tea plantation managers, remote-living old hearties who must have been crazed by the silence of the woods; and people at their daily toil so arduous that it would have made American part-time workers seem like aristocracy. They all actually existed, and existed in a color realism just as vivid and fresh as our own world. Indeed, our own world, and the cosmos, is now a hundred years older and less fresh than those “youthful” days of the Earth.

Like no other documents he has ever seen, Prokudin-Gorskii’s photos show us that the Past was always as real as the Now.

But what will the Now look like in another hundred years?
