Viktor Orban: West Is 'In A War With Russia'

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban (R)
Notes from a candid session with the antiwar Hungarian prime minister, who warns this conflict could easily get much worse

It happened again. This evening was the third time I've been in a small group session with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban. I told the visiting journalists and publishers that they were going to be blown away by this guy, because they're not going to believe how different he is from the way he is portrayed in the Western media. He's sharp, funny, brilliant, and completely confident. He's not hovered over by press aides, and he doesn't guard his words to the point where he says nothing but mush. He's really interesting. As I told the folks I talked to before hand, at the conference, who were invited to meet later with the PM, "You're not going to believe that a world leader is actually like this."

As usual, after the event, there were stunned. Orban spent two hours with us, answering every question -- even particularly tough ones from a Polish journalist -- and was clearly loving it. I was never around Bill Clinton personally, but the things I read about how he was a natural politician -- it's at least as true of Viktor Orban. Last year, I was talking to a Fidesz politician about the PM, and he said there's not another politician in this country who can go from strategizing at the top level, to talking to country people at a farmer's market, and be utterly genuine in both places. I believe it. If he were on TV more in the United States, the view people have of Hungary would be totally different.

The Nightmare of NATO Equipment Being Sent to Ukraine

On Tuesday the White House decided that it would send about 30 M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine, which was seen as political cover for Germany, which decided to ship 14 Leopard 2 tanks to Kiev.

Early on the morning of May 2, 1945, General Vasily Chuikov, the commander of the Soviet 8thGuards Army, accepted the surrender of the German garrison of Berlin.

Two days prior, soldiers from the 150th Rifle Division, part of the Soviet 5th Shock Army, had raised the victory banner of the Red Army over the Reichstag. An hour after the banner went up, Adolf Hitler and his mistress, Eva Braun, committed suicide in his study inside the Furhrerbunker.

Chuikov, the hero of Stalingrad whose battered 62nd Army was renamed the 8th Guards Army in honor of their victory in holding that city in the face of a massive German onslaught, had led his troops into the heart of the Nazi capital, battling stubborn Nazi resistance in the Tiergarten district of Berlin, where the den of the Nazi beast was located. The Soviet general was rewarded for the courage and sacrifice of his soldiers by being in position to accept the German surrender.

Russo-Ukrainian War: The World Blood Pump

Iron • Ash • Blood
Since Russia's surprise decision to voluntarily withdraw from west bank Kherson in the first week of November, there has been little in the way of dramatic changes to the frontlines in Ukraine. In part, this reflects the predictable late autumn weather in Eastern Europe, which leaves battlefields waterlogged and clogged with mud and greatly inhibits mobility. For hundreds of years, November has been a bad month for attempting to move armies any sort of significant distance, and like clockwork we started to see videos of vehicles stuck in the mud in Ukraine.

The return of static positional warfare, however, also reflects the synergistic effect of increasing Ukrainian exhaustion along with a Russian commitment to patiently attriting and denuding Ukraine's remaining combat capability. They have found an ideal place to achieve this in the Donbas.

It has gradually become apparent that Russia is committed to a positional attritional war, as this maximizes the asymmetry of their advantage in ranged fires. There is an ongoing degradation of Ukraine's warmaking ability which is allowing Russia to patiently maintain the current tempo, while it organizes its newly mobilized forces for offensive action in the coming year, setting the stage for cascading and unsustainable Ukrainian losses.

In Ernest Hemingway's novel, The Sun Also Rises, a formerly wealthy, now down on his luck character is asked how he went bankrupt. "Two ways", he replies, "gradually and then suddenly." Someday we may ask how Ukraine lost the war and receive much the same answer.

Comment: This analysis is a fount of information, logic and strategy - well worth the read.

NewsReal: Germany Sending Tanks to 'Save Ukraine' - WEF Meets to 'Save The Planet'

In an apparent last-ditch effort to thwart Russian forces sweeping across Ukraine, the Anglo-Americans are putting enormous pressure on Germany to greenlight the delivery of thousands of German-made Leopard 2 tanks to the 'war theater' they created. Faced with the prospect of the Russian army destroying German tanks en masse, for the second time in 80 years, will Germany cave and repeat history?

Meanwhile, the 'globalist elite' are meeting in Davos, Switzerland, for this year's World Economic Forum, where its representatives and prestigious guests are doing everything possible to validate ordinary people's suspicions that 'the globalists' are megalomaniacs.

Are the forces that took down Nixon and hamstrung Trump turning on Joe Biden? Tucker draws some amazing parallels between the Nixon era and the last few years in American politics.

"Unelected lifers in the Federal agencies make the biggest decisions in American government and crush anyone who tries to rein them in."

NewsReal: What's Biden Been Hidin'? Classified Documents!

© Sott.net
We know, right - shocking, scandalous!

Except, it isn't. Which senior official in DC does not have classified documents in their home?!

And yet, the US govt and media last week made a big stink about it, to the point that AG Merrick Garland has announced a Special Counsel to 'investigate Biden's wrong-doing'. Clearly, this is a contrived message to pressure Biden, possibly to ward him off re-running in 2024.

In the meantime, MAGA Republicans are achieving with astonishing rapidity all they wished for (and more!) when bargaining with Kevin McCarthy for him to become Speaker of the House. It's all going so smoothly for the Republicans, one begins to wonder whether they're being set up for a fall...

Also on this NewsReal, Joe and Niall explain why an eerily familiar 'J6-style Insurrection' took place in Brazil last week, resulting in ex-president Jair Bolsonaro being globally condemned for 'inspiring', if not outright organizing, a 'failed fascist coup'.

NewsReal: MAGA Congress? Speaker House Fight Signals Shift Towards US Isolationism

After a contentious opening to the US Congress 2023-2024 that saw Republican rebels force 15 (FIFTEEN!) votes for Speaker of the House, it's likely that Trump loyalists have stamped their influence on what is now a GOP-majority House of Representatives.

While it's too early to know for sure, Joe Quinn speculates that this signals a sea-change in overall US government policy - one that will bring it in line with the direction President Trump had attempted to steer it towards: significantly increased US economic protectionism, coupled with reduced spending on foreign wars and client governments.

Never-Trumpers will be loathe to admit it, of course, but they're coming around to realizing that both Trump's diagnosis and solutions for US problems were correct. Alas, it may now be too late to save the US from economic chaos...

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - December 2022: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

secsdec22
This past month of December, a couple of serious blasts of Arctic air spread across the continental U.S., Canada, and parts of Europe and Asia, shattering records. More than 250 million were affected by the freezing temperatures... and winter had just started.

Forecasters believe that man-made climate change has empowered La Niña, triggering the so-called Greenland Block (A powerful area of high pressure in the Northeast Pacific and lower-than-normal air pressure over the western Pacific). They even propose this is the main factor for the record freezing temperatures in the northern hemisphere this winter. Yet, we know better now: The sun defines climate, and the global cold trend may increase over the coming years.

Warm-mongers also highlighted that sea ice in Antarctica reached its lowest extent on record at the end of December. Yet, in the long-term Antarctic sea ice still shows an increasing trend. In addition, the overall snow cover in the Northern Hemisphere is the second-highest in the past 17 years.

Arctic and antarctic ice and snow increase and decrease in yearly cycles connected to larger cycles of solar activity. As the solar-minimum sets in, we can expect an overall increase in ice and snow cover.

The arctic blasts engulfed the US, coast-to-coast and top-to-bottom. 60% of the US was affected by freezing temperatures, and 2 million were left without power. The pattern flipped to warmer temperatures at the end of the month, just to welcome another forecasted polar vortex in January.

Most of Canada, from British Columbia to Newfoundland, was also hit by extreme cold. Airports canceled thousands of flights, and power outages affected more than 300,000 just in Quebec and Ontario.

The UK was pummeled by the 'snowiest period in 12 years' lasting a month. The government outlined plans to go 'lights out' in January after National Grid warned there could be blackouts due to an expected energy crisis.

It was also a time of extremes in France and parts of Switzerland with significant snow at higher altitudes, and heavy rain lower down. Even if there was a warmer trend in some parts of Europe this month, the forecasts point out to a colder January.

Parts of Moscow were covered by over 12 inches of snow this month, something not usually observed until the end of winter. The last time a similar depth of snow was recorded in Moscow in mid-December was in 1989 and 1993.

And Mexico City also got its third snowfall in 82 years, affecting primarily high-altitude areas.

Floods triggered by sheets of rain continued around the world this month, including:
  • Philippines - Heavy rain caused 51 deads and the displacement of at least 46,000. 17,300 acres of crops were wiped out.
  • Southern Thailand - 21 inches of rain in 24 hours.
  • Northcentral Vietnam - 13 inches of rain in 24 hours.
  • Namibia - 3 months' worth of rain in 24 hours.
  • South Africa - Countrywide floods.
  • Baghdad, Iraq - Non-stop rain for 45 days.
And at least two died and 11 were injured after a strong 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of northern California. Thousands were left without power. 80 aftershocks have rattled parts of Northern California since the event. The largest aftershock was a 4.6 magnitude quake in Rio Dell, one of the hardest hit areas.

Is there an Orwellian agenda behind "Climate Change"?

climate change NWO

Comment: This 2017 Dutch SOTT-Focus article correctly predicted that the CO2 scam is going to be used to control every facet of our lives.

To what extent is climate change real? And what is actually happening? Read on to find out our viewpoint about this.

Co2 tracker

"It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it." ~ John Coleman - Meteorologist and founder of the American Weather Channel.
Only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe humanity is causing a climate crisis, according to a survey from the peer-reviewed Organization Studies. In contrast, a large majority of the 1,077 respondents are convinced that nature is the main cause of global warming.

Global warming skeptic scientists do not deny that man-made CO2 is warming the planet. But regard the amount of CO2 emitted by humans as too minuscule to make a difference.

Remember Al Gore's globally promoted documentary ''An inconvenient truth,'' calling for "drastic measures" to reduce greenhouse gases before they reach "the point of no return" within ten years? Well, the ten years have passed. And the doomsday scenarios have not materialized.

Comment: The role humanity plays in the planetary/cosmic "weather system" lies in the strength of its "collective psychic state" - which is now in serious trouble because of the increasingly extreme pathological control over humanity.

So we are responsible for climate change, just not in the way everyone thinks. The hidden powers have distorted and falsified this higher truth - and have everything to fear when it comes to light.

Somehow, we've made it to the end of 2022 without civilization collapsing. Although most things did - more or less - successfully 'reboot' after the hare-brained, draconian 'lockdowns' of 2020, and the 'voluntary' ("but if you don't take it, you're fired - and WILL die soon") 'vaccines' of 2021, it's thanks only to the resilience of decent working people that anything still works at all. And special thanks should go to the Canadian truckers and their millions of supporters who stood up to the Trudeau regime in early 2022. For all we know, without their peaceful uprising, Covidianism and globalist diktats would have been forced on us all to a greater extent than they have so far been.

Then again, maybe the pathocrats in power no longer care what 'the little people' think. What was it that pulled governments back from the brink of physically enforcing compulsory 'vaccination' in 2022: mounting evidence that the 'vaccines' had no effect on reducing Covid-19 transmission or hospitalizations? Concern over the growing, widespread discontent? Or Vladimir Putin's announcement in late February that Russia would no longer stand by while a US-installed puppet regime in Ukraine attacked ethnic Russians?

The timing was certainly interesting. Two whole years of deliberate psychological terror about a relatively harmless illness suddenly gave way to the kind of racist and virulently hateful invective against Russia that would have made Hitler proud. So much for 'never again'. Once again a Western 'grande armée' is at war with Russia, a war they tell us will not end until Russia's total collapse or the government's replacement with entities favorable to Western business. Not only that, we're told that the war is existential - that the West, as such, will 'cease to exist' if Ukraine does not 'defeat' Russia.
