The "Cost of Living" Crisis

The Cost Of Living Crisis is not one we deserve

By Dark Politricks

I have been in hospital twice lately so apologise for the lack of articles, however, it has shown me what a state the Tories have let the NHS get into. The hospital I was staying in was rolling out a new computer system, where every patient had a QR code on their armband. It had to be zapped before any medication was given to you, or your blood pressure was taken. 

Anyway, before any new computer system is developed and then dumped for being unusable like the last £20bn system was, they should concentrate on the basics first. Things like ensuring wards have working showers for people to use rather than being used as store rooms, and air conditioning so we don't all sweat our beds wet in the 30-40C heat waves we have been having, those would have been nice.

It's a travesty that they expect people to keep clean and germs and bugs not to spread in a hospital when men cannot even wash properly every day. There is a lack of towels and alcohol gel to clean your hands with as well, and we all just lay in the heat in silence. Not nice.

I could go on about this all day, however there are more important things to worry about in the UK at the moment. Such as the Tory battle for leadership of the corrupt party that has led us to the biggest economic mess since the 70's at least.

Every time I hear commentators or people talking about the "Cost of Living" crisis we are going through, with inflation at double figures and the worry that energy companies will be putting our bills up by over 100% every 3 months for at least a year to come there is no talk about the root underlying cause of all this.

All that is mentioned is that the high inflation is being caused by BREXIT, COVID, and supply chain hangovers from the lockdown. Plus there are plenty of companies price gouging and making millions on top of the high inflation that is going to be hurting everyone in the country for at least a year or more to come.

What I don't ever hear is the real reason for the high rise in food, petrol, heating and delivery costs i.e our stupid sanction war with Russia.

With all these hustings between Rishi Sunak, the ex-Chancellor of the Exchequer. A man who had no fear of stabbing his boss in the back and Liz Truss the trade secretary who is so blind and has no foresight that she, along with Rishi, could not see the damage the sanction war with Russia would do to our own economy. Either one is not going to be able to solve our inflation problem.

These two Tories are fighting to take over from Boris the Buffoon, the blonde-haired idiot who basically agreed to follow the US/NATO plan to sanction Russia for their invasion of Ukraine, and push for other EU countries to do so, all at the cost of destroying their own economies.

It must have just slipped his mind that the whole continent relies on Russian gas to keep our lights on and our houses warm in winter.

When the picture of the Earth at Christmas is taken from space this year the EU is going to look as dark as North Korea. Yet no one seems to want to mention it apart from "Putins price hike", as in he is punishing us for no reason at all.

There is no mention that we have taken and used millions of pounds of his gas and then refused to pay him, basically stealing Russia's money. Then all the sanctions we have laid at Russia's door trying to destroy their economy but instead only solidified Russia's partnership with China, and made the country look to new territories like India to sell their massive raw materials to

Russia could destroy the whole of the EU in one second by turning the gas pipes off and we didn't even think about a plan B in case this economic war didn't pan out the way we wanted it to. I think a proper leader should have, as it is pretty clear that Russia is more than just a big gas station with the GDP of Cyprus.

Boris was just too hand appy to get his own "war" and pretend to be Churchill as he met the puppet Zelenskyy in Kyiv, telling him not to negotiate with Russia, as the EU and USA would keep him and his country pumped up with weapons and training. All that has done is cause a massive loss of life of citizens, Ukrainian soldiers, Ukrainian men drafted into the army, and Russian soldiers.

The only problem is that Russia is chewing up Ukraine's army and spitting them out in the thousands as they roll through the Donbass and liberate the Russian-speaking areas of the country. In fact the Ukrainian forces with US weapons are now using them to indiscriminately shell Ukrainian towns, shopping centres, and schools in the parts of the country now under Russian control. 

This was outlined in the recent report by Amnesty International which reported on Ukrainian forces using civilians as shields, therefore, making them Russian targets by establishing bases and operating weapons systems in populated residential areas, including in schools and hospitals. It said:
“We have documented a pattern of Ukrainian forces putting civilians at risk and violating the laws of war when they operate in populated areas,” said Agnès Callamard, Amnesty International’s Secretary General. 

“Being in a defensive position does not exempt the Ukrainian military from respecting international humanitarian law.”

The US and Europe have pumped billions of dollars worth of weapons into Ukraine, wanting to fight Russia down to the last Ukrainian. However, the Russians either destroy NATO weapons as they enter the country or as they sit in warehouses. 

If they do get to the Ukrainian troops then there is a high chance they are either sold to the Russians, or on the black market due to the Kyiv forces' limited ability to use them because of their lack of training, claims former senior Pentagon adviser Karen Kwiatkowski

The US and EU are literally throwing money down the drain by arming Ukraine as well as probably arming terrorist groups that will come back to haunt us in the future.

The Ukrainian army has apparently even used the US-delivered HIMARS to attack a Russian POW camp in which Ukrainian soldiers held there were starting to do TV interviews about how they were forced into the army and made to do terrible things against their own countrymen

I am under no illusion that inside a POW prison camp there is going to be torture going on between guards and inmates due to the civil war between the two republics and western Ukraine for so long. I bet this is true in both Ukrainian and Russian POW camps. 

We have heard claims from both sides and seen videos of the AZOV Battalion torturing Russian POW's in videos, so I have no doubt the Russians would want revenge on them for doing so and filming it. Why YouTube even let it be uploaded to their site I have no idea, it was a literal snuff film.

There must be a deep hatred between both parties against each other due to the killings that have gone on since 2014, so I don't expect any POW prison in Ukraine at the moment is being run as the Red Cross would wish. However, blowing it up from inside and putting your own men at risk of death seems a stretch especially when people have claimed otherwise. What is needed is an independent war crimes investigation on the scene now and months later.

You will have to watch this video on YouTube as they obviously don't want it being embedded all over the web for people to view. Just click the image and it will open the video on YouTube.

I was hoping whilst I was in the hospital and over the months since I first started writing about the truth in the Donbass, that people I knew would actually start to do their own thinking instead of just ingesting western propaganda about how Ukraine could still win the war and how evil Russia was, however, that doesn't seem to be the case.

The Ukrainian propaganda about how they were ready to do a million-man counter-offensive, and how Putin is close to dying from some horrible disease is just classic MI6 disinformation, and until the new security laws come into play in the UK there has to be an outlet where an alternative point of view is shown to those who take everything the BBC, Sky, and ITV say to them as the literal truth. 

Just banning RT and Sputnik from being read is the sort of thing the Soviet Union did to prevent the people realising what kind of horrible system they were living in, Is that what we have become in the US and UK? 

A country that just bans anything that does not parrot the official line because it might make you think for yourself. Is that the new normal, a society that bans opposition points of view like the Chinese?

If all that the western MSM is telling you is the truth, then why are all these Ukrainian nationals in the East of the country welcoming Russian soldiers who have come to liberate them from the Ukrainian army units that were designated as terrorist groups by many in the west until the war started?

You should check the blog I have taken this from yourself and watch some of the videos as this ex US soldier has been right from before the war even started. 

However, these videos are of Russians liberating Ukrainians in the Donbass and the translations are below. Go and use Google translate if you want to verify it for yourself. Even CNN has a video of all the Ukrainians with their worldly goods stashed in their cars traveling across into Russian-held territory. You can watch their video here.

The ladies from 0:00 to around 0:14 are saying, among other things, “Yes, of course we waited (for you)” and (the smiling blonde in the pink cream coat) “Everyone wants to see, hug, and kiss you!”

The ladies from around 0:15 to 0:26 are also elated.  The one on the right says, “We awaited you for so long.”

Then, the man behind them says (rough translation, cannot be translated literally), “You made it here, good job guys… Wonderful, wonderful.”

The older folks starting from 0:27, also seem pleased.  The white-haired lady says (rough translation, to get the point across), “Well, you know what we had to live with here.”  

The man next to her adds, “So we waited, waited with impatience.  On (satellite?) TV, we watch Russian channels, and (we track where is the) theatre of military operations, where is it, where is it moving to… Like generals who track where the forces are, where they will pass… We sweated for every soldier, for all of them.”

The last few seconds of the video shows four local boys posing with Donetsk soldiers, the Victory Banner—the flag of the Red Army’s 150th Rifle Division, raised over the Reichstag in 1945, and now flown over all territories newly under control of Russian, Donetsk, and/or Lugansk forces—and (at left) what may be the given unit’s colours.  

The little girl relates, “I ran with (my) grandmother to see the flag… We sat over there.  I was so happy.  I don’t know how to convey it in words.”

She then relates how she was studying in Ukrainian but now expects to be studying in Russian (obviously the language she and 95 percent of the Donbass speaks at home and in the course of routine business.) 

You can read the article over at The Dreizen Report here

Also, remember we are in the minority of countries across the world who have attacked Russia for their military operations inside the Donbass. As more and more of the actual truth of the war comes out and people realise Ukraine is actually losing, many people are starting to see that we have joined a proxy war in which Russia knows exactly where our troops are running about, and even letting them play SAS saboteurs because they know it does not matter. 

They know they are going to win this war and even the USA is starting to realise it and throw Zelenskyy under the bus. They are already looking for other countries to start wars with like China, Syria, Yemen, and Iran.

If there wasn't a worse US Presidency for sticking their noses into other countries' businesses and starting wars that could make the mess the world is already in even worse, then I cannot remember one. 

Yes George W Bush used 9.11 as an excuse to start a war in Iraq and Afghanistan which was one big scam for companies like Halliburton to rebuild everything the US army destroyed in their shock and awe tactics. Also, we saw last year at the end of the US army's 2-decade stay in "The Stan", with the mad rush to evacuate US citizens and Afghan translators, what a scam that was as all the millions they had spent training Afghan troops up were wasted and easily shown to the world. 

In the panic of the rush to get out, the Afghan army the US taxpayer had paid millions to train, just handed their weapons to the Taliban, and they rode into Kabul triumphantly in the million-dollar Humvees that the US had just left for them to take. 

So the US didn't exactly do a very good job of kicking al-Qaeda out of the country as they claimed to have. In fact, they were too busy using them in Syria, funnelling weapons to them to fight Assad. 

It is dangerous to be a friend of the USA, one minute you are top of a terrorist list, the next you are being paid to fight proxy wars for them, and then when you are of no use you are killed by a Reaper Drone strike. 

I dread to think of how Zelenskyy will have his life ended, the Russians could have killed him a thousand and one times by now with missile strikes, or by using NATO "shock and awe" bombing of Kyiv but they have left him alive. Why? 

The US was trying to kill Saddam Hussein from day one in their invasion of Iraq. I suspect it is because the Russians see that the West has legitimised his leadership and made him some kind of hero. They want him around to negotiate any peace deal with when there are no more Ukrainian soldiers to kill.

Believe it or not, the Russians have actually moved slowly into the East of Ukraine and not used NATO "shock n awe" tactics that destroy every building as they go as they have no desire to destroy the country only to rebuild it again. 

They are using tactics western mercenaries and soldiers on the ground have never seen in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Reporters have described British and American veterans talking about what hell it is to fight the Russians who have overwhelming air superiority and fire 10 ten times or more the number of rockets and artillery that the Ukrainians do.

I know one person's view cannot change the minds of a million but we are going to suffer badly because of our leader's choice to start an economic war with Russia

Is it worth all the extra money you are going to have to find and the decisions to choose whether to eat or heat, all because of NATO's (the US/UK) desire to use Ukraine as a playground to fight Russia in?

When you are deciding how to pay the bills or wondering how the price of petrol (gas), has got so high at the pump in the coming months will you be thinking that this is all the cause of events beyond your control or will you realise how our war with Russia has played such a huge part in making you broke?

Is it worth fighting a proxy war, and pouring weapons into a country that was ranked the most corrupt in Europe just so they can sell them on the dark web to terrorists all to stop Russia from doing what they said they would almost 20 years ago? 

We had the Minsk accords created to allow for the Eastern Russian population to carry on speaking Russian, but we ignored them and kept poking the bear, training the Ukrainian army including the NAZI brigades, as they shelled and killed over 16,000 people in the East of Ukraine.

It may have taken a decade and a bit but the bear has bitten back and it is very clear who is suffering from this war when you look at the prices of food and energy on your monthly bills. 

We don't have to support Russia to not shoot ourselves in the feet. We can still condemn their actions without all the sanctions that have hurt us more than them. Voting for a new Tory leader isn't going to do anything to solve this problem at all.

We can still save ourselves from huge energy bill increases without believing the Russian invasion is all good, but the leaders of the West had no plan B, and because of that, the citizens of Europe are already suffering. 

Any new leader of the Tory party should reverse the sanctions in return for the gas to be turned back on and negotiated peace talks. It is the only way we can help Ukraine end the war, give Russia an exit, and stop ourselves from hyperinflation and a very cold expensive winter due to the events in Ukraine.
