On telling a lie you must repeat it, telling further lies as questions are asked. For politicians there is no way out but to keep lying... until finally exposed and removed from office in humiliation.

The question is no longer whether the Ukrainian regime will win against Russia. The question now is how long the western powers can sustain it until it loses. And the secondary question related to the latter is how will these powers react when their narratives about this conflict totally collapse.

Two of the big political beasts of the western world have decided to communicate a factual analysis concerning the origin of the Ukraine war. Donald Trump in the USA and nigel Farage in the UK are both relating that the West was responsible for goading Russia into this conflict by insisting Ukraine will join NATO.

The pressure on Russia was unrelenting by the West, driving Russia into the only viable course of action left to it if it wished to maintain its security and long term sovereign stability. Every possibility to resolve the Ukraine problem was taken to the limit by Russia from the near decade long attempt via the Minsk process to offers to agree a new security architecture for Europe including itself, to the near-resolution of the situation in the Istanbul peace negotiations in March-April 2022. All failed due to the western powers seeking war, not peace.

The history of western leaders seeking to attack Russia in almost every possible way short of outright military attack is a long one. The verbal abuse has been constant for decades. In more recent times the economic war against Russia through sanctions has been the most virulent ever seen. Yet Russia stands proud and resilient and in fact has grown stronger. The plan was to weaken Russia through Ukraine and while it suffered economically by the planned war it would be totally undermined economically via sanctions. This has all backfired immensely leaving the western war powers scrambling for any means to reverse this, including devising completely false narratives.

The most blatant false narrative created by the western powers was that Russia’s entry into Ukraine was “unprovoked”. The hymn sheet instructing every western official of any note to use this word went out very early. Saying Russia made an “unprovoked” attack on and invasion of Ukraine was meant to discourage anyone from looking at the genesis of the conflict. Russia was of course massively provoked and over and over again since 2008 when the Bush administration twisted European arms to support Ukraine’s entry into NATO.

Now the fact of this provocation of Russia is being stated loudly and clearly by Trump and Farage and the liberal political elites of both their nations are in uproar. Why? Because this undermines the core lie that they attempted to spread far and wide with the help of complicit mass media to fix this concept in all western minds. For their agenda to continue unabated the vast majority of western opinion HAD to reflect the lie that Russia had acted without any provocation whatsoever. That lie is being exposed now as never before.

Of course as the war in Ukraine has dragged on it has stimulated ever more people to look deeper than the headlines. Online commentators who have demonstrated their trustworthiness over these years such as Alexander Mercouris of The Duran website have been available to relate in detail the true origins of the Ukraine conflict. Besides Alexander there have been others such as Larry Johnson, Scott Ritter, Ray McGovern, Daniel Davis, Colonel Douglas Macgregor and many others. And now they are joined by significant political figures Donald Trump and Nigel Farage.

The lying narratives promulgated by the top echelon of western power are being exposed as never before. Just as Zelensky’s corrupt and inhuman regime is crashing and burning so too are the utterly false narratives of the West. Now the politicians who have been telling these lies about Putin, Russia and the genesis of the Ukraine war are being exposed as never before. What will they do in response? Certainly they will attempt to rubbish those among them who have chosen to broadcast the truth, to degenerate them, call them traitors and any other pejorative term possible. I suspect their chances of succeeding as the Ukrainian regime goes down are slim. The humiliation that awaits all these liars is approaching fast.

West of Ukraine, Sunday night, 21 July

Driving west from Dnipro today I was staggered at how few military transport and supply trucks I came across. I saw 3 police escorts, escorting 2-3 trucks each, and two trucks no escorts with Marder fighting vehicles. That would be around a tenth of what I would normally see. I also saw no big convoys of soldiers heading towards the front, but ambulance traffic was as normal very high.

Electricity in Dnipro 2-3 times a day, max 2 hours at a time, I noticed some food products, mostly imported stuff are out of stock or running low in the few supermarkets I have been in, but local food products no issue.

The UAH is approaching 42 to the dollar, steadily losing value, about 5 percent in the last 10 days.

A quick commentary on the "Piss Summit"
I might not be able to upload much more or do lives for a while

My Fellow Duranianss.

Yes, it's happened again. I have been assaulted by a vicious Malware Bot Virus or whatever 911 Socks is and this thing is bad ! 

However I wanted to give you a "peace" of my mind concerning the "Piece" or piss, as Elensky calls it, as this thing fell to pieces before it even happened.

Coincidentally on the very SAME DAY  this crap happened Saudi Arabia DROPPED the US Petrodollar as a buying currency and NO ONE absolutely NO ONE is talking about this fact anywhere !!!


Hope to see you all asap.
