Written by The Saker; Originally appeared at The Unz Review

Dear friends,

Today it appears that the triumph of our adversaries is total.  I want to post this column saying that I don’t believe for one second that this is true.  All I want to do today is explain why.  Thus, just to make clear to those alternatively gifted, this is not a comprehensive analysis and I will be leaving many things out.

So, here we go:

First, notice how totally paranoid our adversaries are!  Depending on how you count and whom you ask, they had 25k to 65k folks in arms “defending” them.  Of course, the primary goal of this nonsense is to make it appear as if there was a terrible domestic terrorist force out there, ready to take over DC and open Gulags for minorities.  This, in turn, will make it easier to sell a massive crackdown on civil liberties under the guise of “protecting” the (supposed but, in reality, already defunct) “democracy”.  But the fact that they had to engage into a witch hunt even to carefully vet every national guardsman (and probably even more people) shows that they are truly afraid.  I think that they are wrong, there is no credible domestic terrorist threat in the USA, other than the government itself, of course.  But what matters here is not what I think, but what they think, and they seem to have developed a serious case of paranoia.

Second, while I don’t believe in the existence of US domestic terrorists, I do believe that millions of US citizens are convinced that the vote was stolen.  These people are understandably disgusted and angry.  Many might be desperate or even despondent.  Let’s call them the “deplorables” and consider it a badge of honor.  Well, these deporables won’t take DC by force, but they will never trust a Dem or GOP politician again, and neither will they ever trust the corporate media.  One of the blessings in disguise of this stolen election is that the GOP and Fox News have shown their true faces, and their faces are evil, stupid and ugly.  4 years ago millions of US citizens did not so much vote for Trump as much as they voted against Hillary whom they (correctly) saw as a symbol and metaphor for the entire “deep state”, or “swamp” or “ZOG” or whatever other expression you prefer.  These deplorables first trusted Obama (“change we can believe in”) and, later, Trump (MAGA).  Now they know that both sides are equally evil and false.

In the past, both factions of the Big Money Party had safety valves (Tea Party, Occupy Wall Street, Rand Paul, Tulsi Gabbard, Bernie Sanders, etc.).  I think that now the two parties are literally standing naked and boy is that an ugly sight!

Third, and this point I primarily address to my readers in the USA and that will force me to make a sidebar primarily directed at them:

[Sidebar: the planet can be divided into 2 rough parts: ZONE A full controlled by the AngloZionist Empire and, ZONE B, which includes everybody else.  The vast majority of US Americans are only really aware of Zone A.  Why?  For the following reasons:

  • Most US Americans have never traveled outside Zone A.
  • Those US Americans who have traveled outside Zone A typically did so without speaking the local language, thus cutting themselves off the locals and the local media.
  • Most US Americans get their news from US-based outlets, often combined with a few from elsewhere in the Anglosphere (UK, AUS).
  • US media outlets lie even more about what happens in Zone B than they lie about Zone A.
  • US schools have pretty much stopped teaching history, and when they do, it is all propaganda about the “city on the hill” and all the rest of the imperialist claptrap about how exceptional the US is.  As a result, when most US Americans are exposed to factoids about Zone B they are not equipped to understand their meaning or importance.
  • Most US Americans simply assume that people in Zone B are very similar to those in Zone A.  Most US Americans also assume that most governments in Zone B are even more evil than Uncle Shmuel.
  • Most US Americans also believe in what I call the “immigration fallacy”: the belief that people come to the USA from all over the planet because they prefer the USA to their home country and people.  Anybody living in the USA and speaking Spanish knows that totally false this belief is, of course.  But few non-Hispanic US Americans ever speak in Spanish to the Hispanics in the USA (FYI – I do).  Anglos generally seem to have a hard time with languages…
  • Sadly, most US Americans are not educated by their parents, their religious leaders, their communities, or their schools.  Most US Americans get most of their education from watching TV.  Since all the US TV channels offer almost the exact same mix of vulgar entertainment, propaganda and commercials, this “education” resulted in a huge amount of massively dysfunctional families and communities.  This addiction to a flickering screen (be it the Idiot Tube or You Tube – same difference) gives them a very short attention span and a limited ability to process large amounts of written information, which is what is needed to be able to analyze a situation]

As a direct consequence of these factors, most US Americans live in a “mental space” where Zone B simply does not exist, and when it is mentioned, it is invariable in the “same old clichés” mode.

Finally, considering all of the above, it is truly a miracle that the deplorables completely ignored a massive brainwashing campaign (waaaay worse than anything the Commies or the Nazis ever came up with!) against “Trump the New Hitler” and still voted for him twice, both in 2016 and 2020!  It really goes to show that most US Americans quietly but passionately hate the regime in DC and that they use every opportunity they get to at least to try to change their country and their lives by means of voting.  Makes you wonder what these “disobedient” deplorables will do the next time around now that voting became clearly a waste of time, don’t it?]

Now here is the good news: Zone B does exist!  In fact, it is huge, rich, truly diverse and it has long figured out that both the AngloZionist Empire and even the USA as we knew them have basically died, all that’s left from it is some residual momentum and many bad habits by ignorant, arrogant and delusional US politicians.

Why is that so important?

Because if we allow the Great Satan (actually a very good and exact expression, I think that it fits the new regime perfectly, I will use it more often) to convince us that reality is all contained in Zone A, we could really fall into despair.  Yeah, the USA is screwed, and so is all of the EU.  As for US colonies like AUS or NZ, not only are they screwed (say by siding with the USA against a much, MUCH more powerful China), they also seem to have a morbid desire to outstupid even the USA in terms of crazy laws and insane ideological positions (say on COVID, for example).  But all this in ONLY true inside Zone A.  Very few people in Zone B still believe that the USA matters a great deal.  Most of them already know otherwise, even if this is never reported by Zone A media.

There is even more good news: neither the (rump) AngloZionist Empire nor the (rump) USA represent any credible threat to most countries in Zone B.  Oh sure, US politicians can call Russia a “gas station masquerading as a country” or a “regional power”, the truth is that the united West has completely failed to break, or even meaningfully hurt Russia, despite 46 sanction packages (that’s just by Trump, not counting the “change we can believe in” crook).  Heck, even COVID only marginally hurt Russia (which, unlike the flag-waving pseudo-patriotic crap spewed by western politicians took COVID seriously, very seriously in fact, as early as March and prepared the country for no less than two major outbreaks, both which happened, and both which Russia successfully dealt with; this is why the EU is now in full COVID-hysteria mode, while Russia does not bother to impose any lockdowns at all!).

Now let’s place two US propaganda items side by side and take a look, ok?

  1. The USA has the most powerful economy on the planet.
  2. Russia is the #1 adversary of the USA (at least according to the Dems, the GOP places China as #1 and Russia only as #2)

Do you see the problem?

If the USA is so powerful, how is it that it failed to crush Russia?  What about Iran?  Or, in extremis, Venezuela?  Yet, even the the last case, the “best” this supposed World Hegemon did was send a few clueless ex-special ops to get caught and give case of hysterical laughter to the entire Latin American continent!

And these folks want to take on China or Russia?!


So here is the other very good news: Zone A presents no real threat to Zone B!!!

Yes, of course, the USA can still nuke China, Russia, Iran, Venezuela or some other country.  But let’s look at the consequences of such a strike:

  • Against Russia: the USA simply vanishes as a country.  Completely and forever.
  • Against China: the USA as a society completely collapses for a very long time.
  • Against Iran: the USA gets stuck in a major regional war it can only lose with massive geostrategic consequences (still, the new regime might try to pull this one off, never say never, no matter how stupid this idea can seem to you – always remember that the ignoramuses in DC are as delusional as they are ignorant!)
  • Against the DPRK: the USA gets stuck in a major regional war it can only lose with massive geostrategic consequences.
  • Against Venezuela: the USA gets stuck in a counter-insurgency war it can only lose.  The comprador regime in Bogota will not survive such a war and Colombia will also “fall”.
  • Against any other Zone B country: the US successfully nukes this/these country/countries only to find itself being treated like a pariah by the entire planet (including quite a few US colonies), including the real military powers.  NATO and the EU will also collapse is that happens (the US being their cornerstone).

The bottom line is that while the US triad is still fully functional and capable of waging a full-scale nuclear war against any adversary (including Russia and, even more so, China), the truth is that all this triad really achieves is making it impossible for another nuclear power to use nukes against the USA.  Which is not minor or irrelevant, the problem here being that the US nuclear triad provides with exactly zero help when trying to deal with any adversary not using nukes (either because this adversary choose not to use nukes due to the effective deterrence of the US nuclear triad or simply because it has no nukes in the first place).

As I have mentioned in the past, the US submarine force is, along with the nuclear triad, the other truly effective and powerful force which the US can count on in case of war.  However, other than launching large numbers of outdated and, therefore, easily countered cruise missiles there is little this force can do to assist a US ground (or, for that matter) air operation against anything but a very weak adversary.  The problem with so-called “sub-peer” adversaries is that they have relatively few lucrative targets to strike with cruise missiles (think Venezuela here).  Most of these subpeer adversaries do not have the air defenses needed to deal with any halfway determined US missile and bomb attack and the US can quickly destroy whatever air defenses such “sub-peer” countries have.  So yes, I admit it.  If tomorrow the USA wants a “short and triumphant war”, say to boost morale or distract from internal problems, they could still attack countries like, say, Antigua and Barbuda or Santa Lucia, but such a farce will hardly would qualify as “brilliant victory” of the “best armed forces in the galaxy”, now would it?  Or maybe would, who knows? If the united propaganda machine wants to present that as a triumph for US forces, like they did with the Grenada invasion (one of the worst military operation in history!) they can do that, of course.  But that would only serve to further ridicule that propaganda machine since 2021 is not 1983, there are now millions of deplorables out there who will never buy this kind of silly nonsense.

Besides, considering how the joint efforts of the USA, Israel and Saudi Arabia (the “Axis of Kindness”) completely failed to deal with the Houthis, my money would not be on any US invasion force in the Caribbean (with the possible exception of a re-invasion of Haiti or the Dominican Republic, but these are already US protectorates, what would be the point?!).

Why does all that matter so much?

Because the Dems are clearly up to no good.  Next, not only will we see a wave of repression against free speech internally, but the Dems are already making noises about, you guessed it, China and Russia (again!) and, when that inevitably yield exactly zero results, they will turn to “hate on” Iran and Venezuela again.  But even these comparatively weaker countries are now very much capable of making Uncle Shmuel pay an immense price in blood and hell to pay in terms of political blowback on too many fronts to count.

The “power” of a nation (or a coalition of nations) can be measured using very many different type of metrics, but the three most common ones would probably be: economic power, military power and political power.  If we use those three to compare Zone A to Zone B, it would be reasonable to posit the following:

  • Economic power: more more or less equal, with Zone A quickly going down and Zone B quickly rising.  Zone A still has A LOT of comprador regimes willing to defend it not only at the UN, but in most international bodies (including non-government ones like the IOC for example, or WADA).
  • Military power: Zone A very much weaker than Zone B (just think RU+CN+IN for starters!)
  • Political power: Zone A still stronger, but that is also changing fast.  You can say that most world rulers are still serfs for Zone A, but most people worldwide have long switched their support for Zone B countries.  The recent triumph of the people of Bolivia over their oppressors is a very telling sign of this trend.

And here is the key factor to keep in mind: there is nothing, absolutely nothing, the Biden/Harris Admin can do to change these trends.  It is simply too late and when the initiation of the internal collapse of the USA, these trends will only accelerate.

===>In other words, there is hope!<===

Yes, the bad guys did win, but only over Trump and his clueless pseudo-allies (did they betray him faster than he betrayed them, or was it the other way around?), but they only won one a battle against the deplorables and they have won exactly nothing against Zone B.

The Dems are now busy with vengeance in all its forms.  They also relish in humiliating Trump and those who dared to support him.  This is the political equivalent of torturing people in basements, not winning glorious battles.  But they don’t realize that, they are too vain, too ideologically hateful, and too cowardly to understand that.

Still, brainwashing, like torture (including mental torture!), is real.  In this case, this is a battle for the minds of the deplorables who now have to be beaten down into a catatonic state of total submission and compliance.  The Dems are using lies, their favorite weapon, but their assault is real, nonetheless.  And this is the battle which we, those who opposed imperialism, have to fight – the battle for the minds of the people in Zone A: we need to show them that the pseudo-reality of Zone A has no real existence outside the Idiot Box and the vapid rhetoric of US decision makers.

We have to mentally prepare for a sharp increase in the amount and scope of the lies the US propaganda machine will be telling us (if you thought the last 4 years were bad, prepare for much, much worse; good example here).  And, of course, expect LOTS of false flags, especially to demonstrate the reality of the alleged danger coming from the “domestic terrorists”.  That will all go down against a background of a full-spectrum attack on free speech, dissent and any form of actual (as opposed to pretend) thought, really.

The irony is, of course, that the coming witch hunt (it will be way worse than Salem or McCarthy) will be waged in the name of diversity and ostensibly against “hate”.  In reality, of course, what the regime wants is to crush real diversity because the leaders of the US Nomenklatura absolutely hate everything besides their sorry selves.  Like all ideologues, what these folks want is 1) total power and 2) total uniformity.  All those rejecting these modern dogmas will be branded as criminals, terrorists, heretics, racist and, of course, Russian and Chinese agents.

And that is why this regime will also fail.

Conclusion: diversity WILL win.  The REAL diversity, of course!

Our planet is wonderfully diverse, especially outside the uniformity sector of Zone A.  There IS a Zone B out there, and the leaders of Zone A will be defeated by our real common and shared humanity (and their hatred for us!).  Somewhere between Obama and Trump, the world has moved on, and it is now very busy dealing with the immense challenges and opportunities facing it in Zone B.  And no, neither Russia nor China is busy trying to sabotage or undermine the USA – US leaders are doing that much better job of that than any Russian or Chinese ever could.  So why even bother (and nevermind the risks!)?

We cannot predict what will happen next, there are simply too many variables to do that.  But what we can do is predict with a great degree of confidence that the new regime in power in DC will do no better than all the other regimes which came to power by means of color revolutions in the past couple of decades.  There is no hope left for the Empire, as for the USA, there will be plenty of hope left for them, but only after a long and painful process of collapse and rebirth (both of which are inevitable by now).  The truth is that US is not that unique as empires go, sorry, it is just your typical arrogant and narcissistic empire which will collapse just as all the other arrogant and narcissistic empires in history have collapsed, mostly under their own obscene weight.  And those poor souls who sincerely believe that China (or Russia) want to replace the USA simply don’t understand that these two countries already have been empires, it was a disaster, thank you very much, and they have no desire to repeat their past mistakes.  This desire for non-exceptionalism and normalcy will, with time, also become the object of a large social consensus in the USA.  And, with time, the USA will finally be welcomed into a truly free Zone B or, should I say, a Zone-free world.

The American Zone A assholes have reactivated CIA Wahhabi assets in Iraq as a massive suicide blast has hit central Baghdad. The Zionists will now push US to commit more troops in Iraq and Syria and escalate tensions.


Prior to the cowardly assassination of Gen. Soleimani several PMU Bases in Iraq were attacked by Air Raids, the AmeriCunt Invader/Occupier/War-Terrorists claimed they were not involved because the buddies + partners in War-Crimes + Terrorism AKA ZioNAZIs of IsraHELL were the massmurderer who attacked the Forces who nearly whiped out their Proxies AKA ISIS in Iraq, the resul was the resurface of ISIS that was the AmeriCunts + ZioNAZIs intention. Lately the PMU suffers again Bomb Raids on their Bases in Iraq the AmeriCunts again play again the innocent but they exactly know that their notorious partners in War-Crimes+Terrorism the ZioNAZIs of IsraHELL bombing them again to prevent the PMU advance against their ISIS Proxies.

Just Me

The real issue is that the Zionist cowards are shitting bricks as Iran expands is areas of influence, so Biden who has a 43 year record of being a CIA/FBI deep state senile idiot will be totally manipulated by the Jews, who form 80% of his cabinet. The CIA has already activated its Wahhabi assets in Iraq to totally destabilize the country to justify an occupation surge like Obama did. It now time for the Iraqi resistance to start hitting the occupation cowards in both Syria and Iraq and the wider region. Trump was all barking buffoon, but this senile fool is dangerous as he is slave to the Zionists.

Jens Holm

Very good I have seatbelt in my armchair. Hahahaha. Later on it might be good die laughing.


Committing more US boots on the ground will not change the strategic situation in ME, they will present more targets for the militias to attack. I do not see US deploying more troops in the ME, it is a loosing proposition.

John Brown

Exactly. It is in the interests of all enemies of the racist supremacist global Jewish satanic slave empire dictatorship to have the empire over extend its vassal slaves and their slave armies like the USSA. This will sink the Zio dollar much faster and with it the Zio empire.

All dying empires make this mistake. They try to hold onto everything, fight everyone, which causes them to lose everything.

This was the conflict between the Adelson Nutsenyahoo and their puppet Trump faction against Soros Rothchild etc faction and their puppets Biden, Killary etc.

The side who owns Trump wants to try to consolidate the empire and hold onto the best parts if it they can as they think global domination can’t be achieved vs. the Biden masters want to go for global conquest.

can only disagree with zones—more than 2
if we accept this then I would argue amerikans are equally ignorant about both zones

AmeriCunt Exceptionalism Braindamage + Fascist Delusions of Grandeur

Tommy Jensen

Thats the point of the article. Zone A is illusion. They and many dont know Zone B exist.
Maybe you should read the article?

Lazy Gamer

The article does not address the fact that the US is using either a coalition or a regional partner to operate. Zone B has to enter into long lasting relationships with other countries so they dont get isolated and spent.

Jens Holm

I agree. Dividings can be much more complete then this try.

Tommy Jensen

Thats what they are doing. But the many disillusions in Zone A dont see it, only the desperate and frustrated actions. Thats what the article is about.

Jens Holm


Some say they are sponsered by dentists, because they put stones in bread.

Jens Holm

Typical writing. After a lot of strange evaluations, they finally find Bolivia as a good example:(

It seemes the author not even know the m,ain differentce between Trump and Biden.

Trump is like Putin wishing only seperat agreements, so the countries can be dominate one by one big the biggest one.

Biden is like many others such as Obama and Clinton. They believe in big systems with all and organisations for it. Here the big ones will be dominant, but the smaller ones can join and unite if something is terriible wrong.

Biden already has started to go back to those systems, which makes stability and also at least more equal right then having a Trump or Putin as Gods or Devils.

Ishyrion Av

It seems you don’t know either the difference between Trump and Biden. The difference between the values they embrace, the difference between national and global. Each with its own values.
Values which makes them strong in their way of living. Family versus sexual liberty. Responsibility versus hedonism. Life versus death.
You didn’t see it yet, but there are only two roads. One is tight and hard to follow, one is large and full of earthly rewards. Second one leads to self annihilation.

Jens Holm

In heaven there is no beer, thats why we drink them here.

Ishyrion Av

I’m sorry for you, it seems your life was full of traumas up to this moment also.

There is no anglo zionist power it is the racist supremacist global Jewish satanic slave empire dictatorship.

Exactly, if people would read my advises too we would all get closer to reality.

Jens Holm

There is no space in menthal hospitals here. But it would help, if we all were standup comedians, if we had to.


Ishyrion Av

Although the article is good, I cannot stop noticing that in fact China – so called zone B power – is in fact the rocket engine of globalization.
And if this is true, and is definitely true, then zone A and zone B are just temporary demarcations, while the future will be a global zone A. With China as a leader.
Same China who delivered the Cultural Revolution, same China who controls its citizens with a social app score.
Actually, the future looks bleak, since national forces were defeated (my opinion!) in the most political significant country on the planet.
I have nothing to celebrate.
But I will not lower my weapons, because I fight on the side of God. And I shall win.


Zone A ~ Zone B = Oceania ~ Eurasia? Orwell’s 1984 was meant as a warning not as a blueprint for the Neoliberal/Globalist Corporate/Oligarch-Fascists such as the Biden/Harris Coup D’éta Puppet Regime and their Handlers.

Ishyrion Av

Indeed… There is only one zone, one global village, as they call it, in the plans. And the new bolshevik revolution which is on going now in United States, will not stop until we all be enslaved.
I noticed people dream about next election (including Trump, I’d say). These people have not learned from the modern history. Communists always came in power with a democratic vote they massively stole it. It happened every time and everywhere. And they kept the power for 50-80 years, killing everybody oppose them.
I really hope I’m wrong this time!

Jens Holm

You seemes to have no idea abput how many there will shoot back at You and many more then the Bidens.


You fighht we no Gods on Your side. Your best hopes will to be fertilizer and not pollution as You are now.


“Second, while I don’t believe in the existence of US domestic terrorists, I do believe that millions of US citizens are convinced that the vote was stolen. ”

The revolutionaries of 1776 were domestic terrorists to the government they broke away from and patriots to the government they formed up until the late 20th century when wokeism became mainstream,

The deplorables are now being hounded by the despicables like the Jews from Hitler and the enemies of Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot. In the beginning of the purges the deplorables too didn’t believe they were targeted for death. Most were unarmed and just shot to death when found.

All one has to do is read the rhetoric put out by the despicables lately over that joke they called a insurrection. Every resource of the State will be used to hunt them down like animals. In fact it has already began. Our new Uncle Joe and Aunt Kamala will personally oversee this.

Fighting to restore freedom and the constitutional republic could only be domestic terrorism in the minds of those destroying those very things. The action required in response is clearly spelled out in the now traitorous Declaration of Independence document.


All the Biden regime will do is accelerate the USA’s downfall from an empire to a collection of warring states. So in a way it’s good to let them take control, because the world will be safer without the old neo liberal order meddling in everything.


“New weekly unemployment claims spiked far more than expected last week to reach a five-month high, as the coronavirus pandemic and stay-in-place orders weighed heavily on the labor market.

The U.S. Department of Labor released its weekly report on new jobless claims Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m. ET. Here were the main results in the report, compared to consensus estimates compiled by Bloomberg:

Initial jobless claims, week ended Jan. 9: 965,000 vs. 789,000 expected and a revised 784,000 during the prior week

Continuing claims, week ended Jan. 2: 5.271 million vs. 5.000 million expected and 5.072 million during the prior week

At 965,000, new jobless claims hit the highest level since August, ending what had been a tentative start of a downward trend in initial claims.”

– Jobless claims: Another 965,000 Americans filed new unemployment claims last week –



Continuing jobless claims in the US, which measure unemployed people who have been receiving unemployment benefits for a while.

– United States Continuing Jobless –



A percentage of the people who went off unemployment went back to work at previous jobs that they were laid off from as some of the lock downs stopped. But many didn’t and either had unemployment benefits expire without finding replacement employment. Or went back to work at a lower paying or part time job.

United States Pandemic Unemployment Assistance Claims

“The number of Americans applying for help from the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance scheme, which covers workers that do not qualify for initial claims, rose to 424 thousand in the week ended January 16th, from the previous week’s revised level of 285 thousand.”

– United States Pandemic Unemployment Assistance Claims –



When you add pandemic unemployment claims to initial unemployment claims. You get the worst unemployment since the Great Depression in the 20s and 30s. Where things go from here, and whether we get a catastrophic economic collapse or something less than that. Will depend on the government deficit to gdp ratio.


The saker is fake good guy, China stole Trump election thru cyber warfare, China (PCC + multinationals) is the new dumb giant serving the globalist, hence the fabrication of covid made in China. So with China’s power rising, the threat to freedom loving people increases. Note that Xi is invited by Davos crowd to talk great reset in coming days

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
