2018 World Soccer Cup in Russia???

Russia awarded 2018 World Soccer Championship

I've had this post in a holding pattern in my "Drafts" for some months now.... but today's the day I bring it out.  Today's the day the US Department of "Justice" has reported on its investigation (just think of the benefits if the Justice Dept had applied its skills and energy to investigating the short selling on 9/11) into alleged FIFA corruption over awarding 2018 Championship games to Russia. The other shoe has dropped. The first shoe dropped the moment Russia was awarded the games. The PTB were aghast....no doubt some bureaucratic heads rolled due to their failed effort to rig the FIFA vote to deny Russia the games.You see...Russia having any big international event is verboten. It goes against the very fiber of elite Atlanticist thinking.  Their modus operendi is: First, you deny the target state's very existence as a separate entity...Then, you attack and destroy. Giving Russia the games is anathema to this essential denial. The powers that be simply cannot allow the games to take place in Russia....and you gotta know these guys will NEVER give up their efforts to scuttle the games.

Remember when Russia had the Olympics in Moscow in 1980? The US came up with a flimsy excuse why the entire western part of the world needed to boycott the event (How about Russia's military involvement in Afghanistan at the time?).  Remember when Russia had the Olympics in Sochi and, when denigrating them didn't work...the US/Israel/NATO used the event to blindside Putin with a fascist coup right on his doorstep, in Ukraine? Well...things have got a lot more tense since then. The stakes are much higher and the effort to scuttle the 2018 games will be intense. Don't rule out a false flag or some other such desperate and/or violent behaviour. They simply cannot allow Russia to be regarded as an independent and sovereign nation, capable of hosting an international event. It would be tantamount to allowing Canada to vote against nuclear non-proliferation at the UN...and you know how impossible that would be!

"Poroshenko calls on West to boycott the 2018 games"

It will be interesting to see how this geostrategic war of the worlds will play out. The US is up against a formidable wall of resistance. Cancel the 2018 FIFA world championship of football? Well....that ain't gonna happen.  I think the US/Israel just doesn't understand how much football (Soccer in North America) trumps politics in Europe. The European public would have their leaders' heads on a platter if the games didn't go ahead.  Russia knows this...no doubt Putin is laughing up his sleeve at the contortions the West is going through to scuttle the games.

The aspect of this tragi-comedy that frustrates the West more than anything is that, even if the US and its vassal states (including Canada) pull out of the games on some pretext or another...which they will inevitably do...it will make no difference at all to the success of the games. The US is a non-entity when it comes to soccer...so is Canada. Nobody cares if they go or not.

No...the US/Israel has to be a dog in the manger...lie down in the straw to prevent the cows from enjoying the feast. It has to...and that's just the way it is.  Stay tuned.

The Animal Communicator

Throughout history, humans have tried to communicate with animals.  Here's a typical example of what happens.  Last year, a woman in Terrace Bay, Ontario, Canada tried to communicate with a lynx:

"Here Kitty Kitty"


Obviously, the young woman's efforts to communicate with the lynx in the video above went nowhere....but note the intelligent patience and forbearance of the lynx! Below, is a video about another woman--with an uncanny ability to communicate with all sorts of wildlife...from birds to baboons.  It's a fascinating video--with an amazing ending.  I highly recommend taking the time to sit down and watch it.  Thanks to Morris108 for drawing my attention to it:

The Animal Communicator


As a pet owner (three dogs and fourteen birds!) I've known for a long time that animals are very smart....much smarter than the not-so-smart humans give them credit for. You can develop the ability to communicate with animals, birds and even fish--on a deep and intuitive level, although I'm nowhere near what the young woman in the above video is at in terms of communication. I have to confess, however, that I never pass a crow on my walks around the neighbourhood without saying hello.

It's long past time that humans took protection of animal and all life on this planet more seriously. The recent movement to accord "personhood" and accompanying legal rights to animals is certainly one step...but with our constitution, courts and legal system being eroded and corrupted at a galloping pace...what does this actually mean? With recent developments--like the militarism of police forces, even humans and society aren't protected by laws anymore.

Still, even small steps are worth while. In the documentary interview about the population of Germany's suffering at the end of WWII that I linked to a few posts ago...the documentary film makers took the extra step of mentioning the suffering that animals endured during the war. I was moved by that effort to expand our compassion beyond humanity.

Philosophers have long identified the fundamental truth--that our ability to care for (and communicate with) the most vulnerable--is the truest measuring stick of our own value and worthiness to exist on this planet.

CawRANT Events #6

Caw RANT Events #6

It's a miserable, cold and rainy Monday on the Wet Coast....time for a RANT!  As I've previously observed, there never seems to be a shortage of rantable (or rantacious) topics.  The first one is about my erstwhile democratic homeland, CANADA.  Canada again voted in the UN along with the Marshall Islands (it has about the same amount of sovereignty) against something it used to hold dear...nuclear non-proliferation. Canada gets told how to vote by foreign powers and that's how it votes.  The idea of representing the views of Canadians never even crosses Stephen Harper's tiny MK Ultra pea brain.

It really makes you disgusted with politicians. Speaking of which... Hillary and Jeb...why are they even still in the running for president of the United States? Nobody wants these re-cycled mobsters from longstanding crime families. Neither has any significant following. The fact these two are still front runners is proof positive that the United States of America political farce is running on fumes. There is no gas left in the democratic tank. In days gone by there were only two options when a nation bottomed out like this...revolution and/or dissolution.  It would be karma to see the US dissolved into tiny Balkan-style statelets....all fighting with one another....like they and their Ziomasters have been creating elsewhere, all over the globe.

I wouldn't count them out just yet however. Just when you think there are no vertebrates left in the halls of US political power...you find a video like the one below...where a politician named Dan Burton cross-examines the purveyors of the Big Pharma vaccination hoax.  He asks just one simple question..."Have they ever been tested?"  I won't give the answer....I'll leave it as a teaser....


Yes, the US/UK, it's military vassal NATO and it's Ziofascist masters have been up to their usual stunts all over the globe. France was recently assigned the "Assassinate Assad" project. Regime change via assassination...to hell with democracy! France wants to assassinate Assad? For some reason, France always gets the sh!t jobs in NATO. Remember when they were assigned to blow up the Greenpeace ship that was protesting nuclear proliferation in the South Seas? Nuclear power only has one real purpose on earth...as a diabolical weapon of war and global destruction. Nuclear energy has always been heavily subsidized by governments (aka, unknowing taxpayers) is not a cost-effective energy source and never has been.

Case in point...the ancient dilapidated nuclear power plants in Ukraine. Remember Chernobyl? According to recent news reports, nuclear waste in Ukraine being mishandled...what a coinkydynk!...so close to the Russian border too! Apparently, the US has also stepped up the building of biological warfare laboratories in Ukraine.  The rest of the country is in a war-torn shambles...but Ukraine gets spanking new biological warfare laboratories.  Sometimes it makes you want to bang your head against a wall.

So, I'm going to close this RANT with something completely different. I'm watching the Stanley Cup Playoffs on TV....and an old yearning has been resurrected in my heart (as it does every year at this time : {.  I would love to see a hockey league (CHL) with only Canadian teams...from coast to coast and in the northern territories.  Just like the CFL (Canadian Football League). I have always asked the question:

"Why is Canada not allowed to have a national league for its own national sport?

...but there is no satisfactory answer. Right now the "National" Hockey League Stanley Cup is being fought over by Chicago, Anaheim, New York and Florida.  I say, give the US the Stanley Cup and the NHL. Canadian teams will never be able to thrive economically in that market...thus we will rarely attract the kind of players needed to win the cup.  Let them have that league...and let Canada form a new league with teams from small centres like St. Johns, Newfoundland and Moose Jaw Saskatchewan. Hey, we could even have a team from my hometown, Sudbury, Ontario! Think about it... The Sudbury Wolves gone national!

The best part about such a League is that we would get rid of that slimy little weasel, Gary Bettman. We would never have to look at his little rat face again!

That's it for this Rant....until the next time.....

Elaborately constructed Piles of Manure are signs of wealth in some cultures

Elaborately Constructed Pile of Manure

Believe it or not, in some primitive cultures, elaborately constructed piles of manure are considered signs of wealth. Lots of these piles in a village mean the people are very wealthy. There is the same mentality/value system in the West's desperation to publish elaborate lies about what the cabal is doing in the Middle East. Let's be clear. From the very beginning of the West's relentless destruction of the Muslim countries and culture of the middle east, [since 1946?] the goal has been to divide and conquer all the countries into helpless Balkan-style states. This will reconfigure the map to give Israel a very big and commanding control of the land, government and resources. That's the unassailable truth. Everything else is an elaborately concocted lie.
  
Lately, it's been getting ludicrous, as Internet blogger James Corbett observed in a short video editorial today. ISIS/ISIL whatever, has a new glossy publication to disseminate its propaganda lies. A report in a recent edition is decrying "conspiracy theorists" for stealing its terror thunder. ISIS (Israel Security and Intelligence Services) is saying some "conspiracy theorists" are insisting the non-stop violence in the middle east is a western/CIA/Mossad "inside job"--thus denying ISIS/ISIL their due respect as terrorists. This piece of dung is carefully arranged atop all the other excrement, i.e., the US "accidentally" supplying ISIS with weaponry, etc. and helping ISIS,  i.e., friendly fire bombing of Iraqi soldiers by the US, followed by mock concern how Iraqis are unwilling to fight ISIS

Well, I suppose they have to provide meaningful work for all the highly paid factotems in the Pentagon and Tel Aviv....scribbling lies for glossy Internet magazines--in order to 'drill the message". The truth is...ordinary citizens in the west and throughout the world are getting tired and bored of these efforts. We're tired of seeing and smelling all the elaborately constructed dung heaps in our main$tream media. We've turned off the M$M in droves. Even surfing the TV channels looking for reno and sports shows...we sometimes inadvertently hit upon a "news" channel--and the dung comes flying out at us from the screen! We gag and can't hit the "channel up" button fast enough. 

It's come down to telling lies about the lies--that are about other lies. The "inside job" has become an inside joke.

Germany and Japan: Two countries chafing at the bit of post WWII occupation

Japanese protestors speaking out against American military occupation


One of the most popular topics I've covered in this blog is the continued US military occupation of both Germany and Japan. This military occupation has been going on for nearly 70 years, since the end of WWII. Since both both Germany and Japan were historical economic rivals to the west, particularly the US, one could almost conclude that WWII was at least partially conducted to neutralize the hegemonic and economic threat that both countries presented. The US profited enormously from rebuilding the countries (under the Marshall Plan) after the war and has gained incalculable advantages from maintaining military bases in the hearts of both Europe and Asia. The muted opposition in both Germany and Japan to continued foreign occupation can be credited to the highly successful main$tream media demonization of both countries during and post WWII. Both countries were completely defeated, militarily, spiritually, physically and economically.

Germany and Japan beginning to re-grow spines

But, as generations succeed generations and war memories fade...the hegemonic masters need to come up with new reasons to maintain occupation. Japan has long wanted US military bases off its limited land base and to reassert its own foreign relations with its neighbours, including China and Korea. Germany's population is slowly regaining their pride--and learning that much of the history that has kept their heads hung down has been concocted...for just that purpose. Watch and listen to this woman, who lived through WWII and is now in her 80's, finally speaking out about the suffering the Germans endured during and at the end of the war...and the lies that have been told about what happened.

Ursula Haverbeck speaks out about War Atrocities
 committed against the Germans by the Allies during and after WWII

Back in the 70's I worked with a German immigrant woman who kept to herself and was a very good worker. One day, something happened that upset her deeply...I can't remember what it was now. She came over to my desk and stood in front of me shaking and in tears. She said in a whisper "You don't know what we Germans went through at the end of the war. "They" came to our village one day, dragged us out of our homes and we were homeless from then on." I think I must have mumbled some comforting remark...she nor I ever mentioned the topic again. It was "verbotten".

Germany, Japan...and the US itself, have been plagued with intermittent, chronic terror events in the decades post war. Japan had poison gas attacks in its subways and, of course, the horrific world wide terror event...the Stuxnet/under ocean nuke/Fukushima attack. Germany had the Munich Olympic terror attack a few decades ago...and the recent Germanwings take-down of one of its passenger planes. Of course, the US secret government did the 9/11 atrocity...and continues to terrorize its own population to maintain control of the military/industrial megalith that it uses to bully the world. A former high level CIA official recently stated that "every single terrorist attack in the US was a false flag attack.

One factor that has changed in recent months...and has created a "sea change" in the post WWII world...is the rise of Russia and BRICS. Now, both Germany and Japan have an alternative economic and possibly military option to consider when attempting to increase their self sufficiency and independence. Will the secret government of the US continue to keep them down by force? Or, will it change tack and return to the "bait" it originally and historically used to gather other countries under the US umbrella.  In days gone by, the US was a beacon of freedom--that drew other countries to admire it...not by fear or the threat of never-ending wars. Now it's Russia that is supporting the mandate of the UN and rule of international law--among equal nations.

Germany and Japan have two of the most dynamic cultures and economies in human history. It's only inevitable that these two cultures are going to reassert themselves. We're entering a new era. The re-emergence of Germany and Japan as equal nations will require a wise and patient win/win approach by the traditional world powers. It will also require a final rejection by the US of the hubristic notion of a uni-polar world. The only question is...can it be done peacefully?

Are corporations now our enemies?

UPDATE:  May 20, 2015 Breaking News: "Five of the world's largest banks are to pay fines totalling $5.7bn (£3.6bn) for charges including manipulating the foreign exchange market. Query....Do Banks feel shame, isolation, humiliation or (since they have a license to print money) financial hardship? THIS is why corporations should never be considered as legal "persons" under the law.


Scene from 'The Wall" by Pink Floyd 
"Merchants have no country. The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains." -- Thomas Jefferson Letter to Horatio G. Spafford (17 March 1814)
 “It’s ridiculous to talk about freedom in a society dominated by huge corporations.” -Chomsky
 security guard recently told me he didn’t know how much he’d be earning from week to week because his firm kept changing his schedule and his pay. “They just don’t care,” he said.
A traveler I met in the Dallas Fort-Worth Airport last week said she’d been there eight hours but the airline responsible for her trip wouldn’t help her find another flight leaving that evening. “They don’t give a hoot,” she said.
Someone I met in North Carolina a few weeks ago told me he had stopped voting because elected officials don’t respond to what average people like him think or want. “They don’t listen,” he said.
What connects these dots? As I travel around America, I’m struck by how utterly powerless most people feel.
The companies we work for, the businesses we buy from, and the political system we participate in all seem to have grown less accountable. I hear it over and over: They don’t care; our voices don’t count.   Robert Reich

Why do people living in the west now feel so powerless? One of the reasons, IMO, is that big corporations have begun to act like fifth columns in all countries. Although corporations under the law have many of the legal rights and privileges as individuals (if not more), they are not motivated to work for the betterment of society. They only look after their own welfare and collude with their friends/mentors/puppets in government and the military/industrial complex. Everyone is aware of how big corporations have off-shored all the good jobs in North America but few have examined how they have colluded in the government crime and corruptions (including the 9/11 false flag atrocity) of the past decades. Did corporations ever stand up for truth or justice? NO! In fact, when whistleblowers such as journalist Michal Hastings got too close to the truth, corporate high tech sabotage may have caused his death. The NSA spying could not have reached such depths of depravity without the collusion of corporations such as Samsung (Samsung TV that watches and listens in on us).

Pharmaceutical companies have always been one of the biggest offenders. Consider the huge vaccination industry, that is is looting and killing Americans.  Consider that it has now finally been reluctantly admitted on the back pages of the corporate-owned main$tream media that vaccine causes autism. Big Pharma companies go back decades in their wanton destruction of humanity.  Do some research into the connection between the huge Bayer corporation and poison gas during WWI and WWII. Bayer made a killing, literally and figuratively..,.and now it wants to treat your headache!

Just when you think that corporations can't get more exploitative or powerful...government reaches under the table, holds hands with corporations giving them even more power...international trade agreements!  The Trans Pacific Partnership is a deal that has been worked out entirely in secret. Apparently it will even have a clause where corporations can sue governments! Political leaders dare not tell the electorate what's in the TPP, but if it's anything like NAFTA we can guess that jobs will become scarcer, the borders will become even more laden with time wasting bureaucractic "security" and prices will be even higher. I do believe TPP will be NAFTA on steroids.

Corporations have become the problem, rather than the solution. The corporate mind who decided to spread the chemical agent Corexit on the Gulf Horizon oilspill, thus making it even more deadly...is a typical example.  Who made this decision? How did they get away with it?  Finally....can they sleep at night? People in the west have the feeling we're becoming trapped and kept hostage in our own land. There have been rumours that the huge box store Wal-Mart is somehow involved in the upcoming military "drill" Jade Helm. Crazy as it may seem...the rumours are that the huge store, which like all retail stores is in financial difficulties...is palling up with the military to use its stores to provide "hubs' to coral people in the event of a 'crisis".  "The customer is always right" has been replaced by "Anything for the bottom line" as a corporate motto.

Some sociologists suggest that long term social problems like racism and inner city violence result from the depredations of unchecked corporatism.  It makes common sense that treating humanity poorly results in social dysfunction. Who can respect corporations, when big corporate millionaires such as George Soros owe millions in taxes? Government itself is one of the biggest sources of corporate welfare.  Corporations are feasting off the public sector...and YOUR tax dollars.

What are the solutions to rampant and unchecked corporatism? Well...as I have said many times on this blog...I don't think taking to the streets in public demonstrations is the answer anymore because....every single protest demonstration nowadays is targeted by the cointel riot provocateurs. One solution is to fight back using the economy...one of the few weapons that the corporatists understand. Boycott offending corporations and become more self-sufficient and less dependent on the "machine" generally.  I suggest staying at home two days per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays?) and not buying anything.  Make it clear this is being done to regain control over our lives, society and the economy...which has been wrested away from us by unbridled corporatism. Humanity has to fight back, because the longer corporations are allowed to grow like weeds...dandelions and buttercups...the more they will morph and spread. The next stage coming up, after global "free trade" is even more terrifying and anti-humane.  Futurists like Stephen Hawking predict that corporations will build robots to replace humans and then the robots will kill humans.

Putin plays hockey, scores 8 goals and even got into a "hockey fight"


UPDATE:  May 18, 2015 - Not to be outdone by Putin, The Lapine is reportering that Canadian Prime Minister Harper has scored NINE goals in street ball hockey...read the details here.

UPDATE:  May 17, 2015  In other Hockey news:  "Hockey world championship: Canada cruises to gold over Russia" 
Putin Playing Hockey

Putin plays hockey, scores 8 goals and even gets into "hockey fight"

MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin has played in an exhibition hockey game and scored one goal after another on assists from retired NHL players.
Putin’s team won 18 to 6, with eight of those goals made by the 62-year-old president, most of them on assists from NHL stars Pavel Bure and Valeri Kamensky.
Three of the remaining goals were scored by Russia’s defence minister.
The game was played Saturday in Sochi, the city that hosted the 2014 Winter Olympics, and concluded shortly before Russia played the U.S. in a semifinal of the ice hockey world championships.
During his 15 years as Russia’s leader, Putin has frequently displayed his athletic skills, most notably in judo and swimming. He took up hockey only in recent years to promote the sport.


What was that old joke?  Suppose you went to a fight....and a hockey game broke out?  lol
