Quote Of The Week (also file under “It’s Probably Nothing”)


“In this venue, your honours, in this venue, I announce my separation from the United States…Both in military, not maybe social, but economics also. America has lost…I’ve realigned myself in your ideological flow and maybe I will also go to Russia to talk to (President Vladimir) Putin and tell him that there are three of us against the world – China, Philippines and Russia. It’s the only way.”

— Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, quoted at ZH: “America Has Lost” – Duterte Announces “Separation” From United States, Alligns With China; Seeks Alliance With Putin

Now for the Aussies…

    Cue mantra repeating that we have always been at war with them.

    And it is starting. The shuffle from a once super power towards the one that will take its place after the meltdown.

  3. Our guy isn’t winning the chess match is he?

    Gee, I wonder who’d like to bid for Subic Bay?

    This is what we get in return for turning the helm of the Pentagon over to narcissistic 12 yr old children.
    On the other hand, the Flips have had enough of our BS since we so lovingly took them under our care 115 yrs ago (see pic of trench full of dead natives). Another place, like A’stan, where whites have gone to practice marksmanship skills on moving targets.

  5. Duterte is amazing, hope he has a good bodyguard. Though I hear he’s proficient himself….

    Reblogged this on ETC., ETC., & ETC..

  7. The greatest government sin is the sin of aggression. The US led by Zionist neocons and globalists have caused more shedding of innocent blood and harm to innocent people than an nation today. God requires atonement of blood for blood. The US will pay for its sins.

    Astounding! I’m re-reading Manchester’s classic: “American Caesar,” of the life and times of Douglas MacArthur. His family had intricate ties with the Philippines for generations. Mac’s father, Arthur, helped defeat and push the Spaniards off the island in the Spanish-American War of ’98. What he got was not gratitude but a guerilla war by the Filipinos to kick out the new American “white devil” masters.

    America, in his day, saw these islands as the “linchpin” of SE Asia. Witness Clark Field and Subic Bay, among others.

    Fascinating to note that “Mac,” FDR, and Churchill were all distantly related cousins and corresponded freely as relatives, but when the shit hit the fan in ’41, Mac was left holding the bag. Promises galore–but no help. Mac actually sent a wire to “Uncle Joe” Stalin for help, be he demurred.

    FDR lied through his teeth to the Filipinos that “help was on the way,” which, when the locals finally figured out America’s duplicity, it did not sit well with them.

    All I want to know–during WWII, when the US Navy sub Trout (SS-202) ran the Japanese Navy gauntlet and delivered ammo to Mac on Corregidor, they then loaded over 20+ tons of Philippine gold aboard for the return trip to Pearl Harbor. Where is that Philippine Treasury gold today? just askin’…

  11. Duerte gets free fish for oil, wotta deal. Trades in O&Co for Hu and Poot.

  12. This doesn’t bode well for Taiwan. This alignment gives China a major break in the south China sea.

  13. It’s Nothing

  14. He hates Obama cuz he black.

  15. Yup. Shits getting deep. The asshatz are all passing wind regarding legitimacy of these elections.They plan to foment a controlled demolition imho.

  16. Duterte is right. By all means let’s continue on the same self-destruct azimuth & vector since it’s working so good. America has the most dumbed down populace on the planet bar none. What’s even sadder & worst is that it doesn’t have to be that way with so much access to the information & readily available. Just illustrates the laziness & complacency of many americans. Sad pill to swallow I know but, we have to examine the evidence & we can see epic failure in this epoch of history. Adapt & survive is the best advice in the oncoming deluge of totalitarianism coming our way. Critical mass gets closer every day & bracing for impact. There are no coincidences & ‘things don’t just happen. They are made to happen’.

    Good riddance. Filipinos have been getting a damn good free ride out of the old USA for generations, and I have never met more deceitful folks. San Diego is loaded with them, all working local government jobs, getting a second pension after their 20 year navy pension. Fuck ’em. I’m SURE China and Russia will become emigration destinations for filipinos fleeing their grossly overpopulated garbage heap islands….

    This is the smart move–it’s right out of the God Father.

    All of these people in Asia know full well that the USA is done.
    As in finished. Kaput.
    Stick a fork in our sorry asses please.

    The only difference between Duarte and the other cheese-dicks out there is that Rodrigo Duterte has zero filter on his mouth. He is not stupid. Nor is he a mealy mouthed politician. This guy knows the USA is headed for a chaotic paradigm shifting reset. He knows that the dollar tyranny is soon to end.

    Amerika is going to be on the bottom of the heap–soon.

    Rodrigo Duterte is going with the winning team.
    Which in this case is Russia and China.

    Our ablity to enforce our “dollar tyranny” with aircraft carriers and military force (see Lybia, see Iraq for our lastest adventures) is soon to end. The dollar tyranny begain over 100 years ago at the end of the Spanish American War which was just a pretense to gain access and dominance over the Pacific Ocean–where Subic Bay in his country was the largest natural harbor in the world, and the main base for our Pacific Fleet (until we were asked to leave some 20 years ago).

    So the war of all wars is soon to begin.

    Please don’t be fooled when Hillary Clinton (who may be elected) stands there as did Franklin Roosevelt–looking surprised and stunned after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor (an attack which Roosevelt manufactured by his embargoes and political actions).

    Same thing is going to happen here.

    Our nut-job people in government (and in the Pentagram who are blindly obeying orders from people who are manifestly insane) are provoking and prodding the Russian bear into a war.

    A rapidly escalating war–unfolding live on CNN with all their propaganda operatives banging their shoes on the table for war.

    And when it does–many conservatives will be fooled into rallying around any fool who has wrapped himself in an American flag… as what happened after Pearl Harbor. If you do–you will be aligning yourselves with the enemy.

    Rodrigo Duterte may have a big mouth, but he is not stupid.

    He knows who’s going to come out on top.

    Nation building needs to end. All troops need to come home. Fuck the rest of the world. We have a powerful enough military to protect any of our interests on the globe.

  20. The USA became the USSA and it was gradually implemented. Here we are, totally betrayed by the Elitist Putzes in DC, and Now these putzes want a war with Russia and why not China too? Throw in Iran and N.Korea for chuckles.
    Who in their right mind wants to go die in the sands of Syria, after doing it for the past 15 years in Iraq and Afghanistan, for No lasting result?
    The only battle I want to fight is the (political 🙂 assault on the unconstitutionals in DC.
    Maj.Gen. Smedley Butler said “War is a Racket”. I hope more read it before marching off to fight the “Foreign Devils”, Again!

      Yeah……I too would love to see hundreds of rotting corpses hanging from lamp posts on Pennsylvania Ave, starting with the Potus and his/her sheboon. Then a shot of Wall St. with more of the same could start to get the point across to the masses that they deserved it…….and then some.
