Welcome to the public square. This is our welcoming tribe dedicated to introducing yourself, meeting new people, and learning about new tribes.
My assessment is that the Russia, Russia, Russia hysteria was perpetuated so that it couldn't possibly turn into China, China, China as it has now. This also benefited Israel since Russia was protecting Syria from complete destruction. In addition to expanding Greater Israel there are a lot of Muslims, Jews, Christians and Atheists who would like very much to bring a pipeline up from Saudia Arabia through Yemen, Israel, Syria and then its easy peasy.
So Russia was fighting tooth and nail to block a major competitor's energy from hitting the market and also stopping the destabilization of Syria so that US missile frigates couldn't park over the Med firing non-stop missiles barrages at Iran and continually bombing their infrastructure. Additionally Russia's large warm water port in Syria is a vestige of their previous power such that if it were to be lost then they likely wouldn't ever have something like that again in our lifetimes.
The Russia, Russia, Russia campaign also benefited China by forcing Russia to cozy up to them with less than favourable deals (regardless of how much Putin touted them as successes). If anything, Russians don't want to be Chinese, they want to be European.
If the Nordstream 2 pipeline actually starts delivering fuel then its going to be game over for all of Russia's enemies during this long game. The country to watch during this is Poland and to a lesser extent Hungary. It is not in Poland's best interest for there to be a strong and united Germany and Russia. This is the reason that Poles are so cozy with the US. The Zionist US wants to fracture Europe down the middle so that it can remain the world power. So you get weird stuff like Poles being encouraged to buy expensive American LNG (liquid natural gas) from expensive specialized port terminals. Since Poland is so strategically important it is allowed to give the middle finger to the George Soros run massive immigration/replacement campaign that much of the EU is now subject to.
As much of a problem as Israel is, China is 50x the problem. The Jews at least have good taste and know how to live well, even if they meddle non-stop. It would be very stupid to throw your marketing campaign in with the most hated China, so they are for now going to sit this one out. We'll see how it turns out but at the least, I'm quite happy to see it all turn from the laughable Russia, Russia, Russia to the absolutely necessary China, China, China.Read More
"Working at CM" www.churchmilitant.com/video/episode/vortex-working-at-cm
First off, allow us to say thank you to each and every one of you — a growing spiritual militia of supporters whose prayers, donations and premium subscriptions (as well as your chatting us up to friends and sympathetic clergy) allow us to keep the doors open. For the entire staff, thank you.
One of the great joys of working here is the like-mindedness of the gang. Every one of us is dedicated to the supernatural realities and truths as they are lived out in the natural world. This past weekend, as you probably know, we had our annual Strength and Honor Men's Retreat — by far the most heavily attended to date. It attracted men from all over the country.Read More

I don't write for them .... I'm here for me, not them.
the ones who do contribute are mostly angry people with stupid ideas and a bone to pick or just so bored that pissing people off is the only pastime they have at work
Good point. The internet is a bad place to hold high value discourse. Especially reddit. In this sense, writing can be a way to organize one's thoughts, and not necessarily as a way to engage with online strangers. I mostly glean whatever good piece of info I come across and have fun in the TRP space.
@adam-l From what I've read about religions spanning from the Bible, To the Prince, To the Wonders of the African World by Henry Louis Gates Jr, and more religions are a means for those in positions of temporal authority to consolidate and spread their influence.
A ruler is more likely to be acquiesced to if the subjects legitimately believe that the ruler was appointed by, anointed by, or descended from an all powerful God or Goddess.
They're less likely to question the authoritative figures for fear of divine retribution due to some superstitious idea torment or affliction like burning in Hades for eternity, after already dying.
Religion is a useful tool for imperialism. By spreading it afar it can indoctrinate foreign nations into abandoning their cultural beliefs and view the imperialistic one as dominant because of it's God and teachings.Read More
