US PRESIDENTS: FROM FIGHTERS TO ARMCHAIR WARRIORS Once upon a time, great leaders were the best among the fighters. Alexander the Great, Constantine the Great, Peter the Great etc… did not earn that epithets in history by sitting in their palaces and reading speeches which someone else had written. Their command to the troops was: …
Even the Wall Street Journal now concedes defeat - admits globalism is dead Yesterday’s edition of the Wall Street Journal read like an epitaph to the New World Order. Since this was done through charts with just some footnotes, it was a short and effective way to pronounce that a 32-year global experiment is finally DEAD. Alas, the Truth in Media had written such an epitaph 23 years ago when this writer stitched together his proposed flag of the New World Order. Here’s are the lead paragraphs of that article.
SEXISM AND DUPLICITY THE BRITISH WAY BRAINWASHING AND DUMBING DOWN THE NATION THE AMERICAN WAY DICTATORSHIP OF MINORITIES REVISITED A true democracy means MAJORITY rule. What we have in today’s perverted world of sexism is a dictatorship of minorities. I first wrote about that over 25 years ago in my 1997 Washington Times column “Dancing ‘Round Golden Calves." Every comment is still valid today, some even more magnified. Here are the opening paragraphs: HOLLYWOOD'S BRAINWASHING The latter - the entertainment industry - deserve a particularly big credit. For their movies, TV programs and series help brainwash hundreds of millions of young people into grown up morons or "mutts," as I predicted in 1997. And this is how that's done... NEW LANGUAGE IN MEDIA: WOKE AND CANCEL "CULTURES" Ever since the 2016 election, you might have noticed increased use of terms "woke" and "cancel" in the mainstream media. As a result, there has been a growing polarization of the American society. The 'woke' crowd (aggressive liberals, reverse racists), egged on by the likes of George Soros and Joe Biden, are have been wreaking havoc on American streets. BLACK SLANG ENTERS MAINSTREAM AMERICA: "WOKE" HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CULTURE; "CANCEL" HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CULTURE, EITHER

BANALITY OF DEATH: WHAT’S A FEW THOUSAND LIVES HERE, A FEW THOUSAND THERE… The preceding was an excerpt from daily news for Sep 24. It boggles one’s mind how casually the leaders of Ukraine and Russia talk about the losses of their soldiers. Like they are counting sacks of potatoes. Yet each one of those deaths leaves a grieving family somewhere in those two countries. And inspires thousands more to be against this war. No wonder there is currently an exodus of military service-age people from Russia. Here in Belgrade, for example, one hears now Russian in the streets more than any other foreign language. That has never happened before despite the traditionally friendly relations between the two countries.
UKRAINE, LIKE YUGOSLAVIA, COBBLED TOGETHER AFTER WW I, FACES SIMILAR FATE - DISINTEGRATION INDUSTRIAL ERA CREATIONS, LIKE NATION STATES, ARE FACING EXTINCTION Regardless of who "wins" in the Ukraine war, that country will never again look the same again
COVID BOOSTED BUSINESS OF MAJOR DELIVERY COMPANIES, RUSSIA SANCTIONS HURT THEM From the standpoint of Joe Biden and his bosses, the purpose of Russia sanctions was to hurt Russia first, Europe second - so that the American companies could gain share in the EU markets. Well, sanctions are a two-edged sword, especially in globally integrated economies. The Europeans proved that by going along with Biden and agreeing to commit an economic Hara-kari. The depth of their self-inflicted wounds is yet to be felt and the winter approaches.
SERBIAN POLICEMAN: "IT'S MADNESS OVER HERE. THIS IS A CRAZY COUNTRY, THESE ARE CRAZY PEOPLE, THEY DO CRAZY THINGS." AND IT'S ALL CONSIDERED "NORMAL", INCLUDING DOUBLE-PARKING AND BLOCKING OTHER PEOPLE'S CARS Last Thursday, I parked our car on "our" street. Milutina Bojica is "a quiet dead end," as people would describe the 100m-cul de sac. It sticks out like an appendix perpendicular to Palmoticeva St, a well known tree-lined residential street in the heart of Belgrade which runs straight down from the Serbian Parliament. Parking in this congested area is always at a premium but especially now when the vacations are over and the kids are back in school. So we were lucky to find a spot so close to our apartment. We call this "carsko mesto" (an imperial spot). 🙂 Well, three days later it turned into a pauper's spot.
It has been years since I walked along the walls of the Kalemegdan fortress. This Turkish structure built on the walls of the Roman city (Singidunum) has always symbolized the indestructibility and resilience of the Serbian nation. After a 500-year darkness under the Turkish sultans and pashas, the Serbs threw off the Ottoman yoke in early 19th century and created their own kingdom. Kalemegdan became a symbol of Serbian victories over three mighty empires – the Ottoman, the Austrian and the German. In 1928, on the 10th anniversary of that victory, a huge monument was unveiled. Dubbed the Victor, the Serbian warrior is holding a hawk in his left hand, symbolizing vigilance and watchful eye pointed toward the former Austrian empire, and a sword in the right hand, ready to defend again his country if necessary.
UTTER DISREGARD FOR BIKE RIDERS AND PEDESTRIANS Let's sum it up. In Belgrade, bike riders and pedestrians are like dirt. Free game for builders and drivers. The communist mindset which puts machines ahead of the individuals and nature is still present. Twenty years ago, a Serbian politician (Djindjic) tried to be different. His government built this beautiful bike path and opened the river to the citizens of Belgrade. Alas, it was all for naught. Because the current authorities are again allowing the construction companies to put machine ahead of man. And they are still allowing reckless drivers to get away with endangering the riders on bike paths. There are never any police in sight there while plenty of them are seen handing out parking tickets or wasting time on other petty offenses. Bottom line: BIKERS BEWARE! Belgrade does not want you.
