No Putin Is Not Worth $60 Billion, and He Does Not Kill Journalists

Robert- In all seriousness why is Putin so great according to the Alt Right and Left? I understand he is an ‘answer’ to neocon bullshit so to speak, but let’s not delude ourselves about this guy.

Juan: He has brutally suppressed opposition to his rule, oftentimes through the murder of journalists, Chechens, whomever. It’s not a free society.

His political opposition are convicted in kangaroo courts of nothing.

Meanwhile Putin has massive investments in 0il in his country, allowing him to push policy to line his pocket books. He is worth $70 billion.

As I said above, an alliance with him and against neocons is a good thing, but this “muh poor Putin victimized by the West” rhetoric is not good.

I cannot speak for the Alt Right. The Left goes a bit too easy on Putin. Putin is definitely a thug. He has had a few people killed. Those people were spies. Intelligence agents, working for the FSB (Russian CIA). All of them were double agents. Even under Yeltsin, several US double agents were executed. In many countries, double agents are considered traitors. It is quite typical for countries to execute double agents. Double agents do not have a long life expectancy. I do not have much sympathy for such heedless and death-defying people. They chose a profoundly risky profession and they paid with their lives. So what?

Also, Putin is out for Putin. He supported Trump because Trump promised to go easy on him, while Hillary had him down as US enemy #1. Who do you expect him to support.

Russia has not been a free country since 1991 and it was not a free country before that all the way back to 1917. Russian people seem like to like benevolent dictators. It’s all they’ve ever known. Most of them don’t even believe in democracy. Putin is extremely popular, with popularity at 87%.  Compare that to the popularity of US-supported Medvedev and  Yeltsin at ~10%. Isn’t it better to have an authoritarian leader who everyone loves as opposed to one who everyone hates?

You must understand how many people in Russia are corrupt. Putin is about the least corrupt man in the whole country. Nearly the entire opposition is dirty and corrupt. Many to most have organized crime connections. Well documented white collar crime has been aptly demonstrated among nearly all major opposition figures. Some of these people have run afoul of Putin and  have been tried and convicted in completely fair courts of law. The Russian legal system is quite fair. There are no kangaroo courts in Russia. A charge of selective prosecution could be made though. The opposition figures now in prison should have thought about that before they committed their dirty white collar crimes.

Putin does not have one nickel of investment in oil in his country to my knowledge.

The Chechen War has been going on since 1991. It’s been a Dirty War from the start, exactly like all of the counterinsurgencies the US supports. Russia’s war against the Chechens is not much different from your typical US supported counterinsurgency. Killings of opposition journalists, human rights activists and Chechen opposition figures and rebel supporters have been going on the entire time. In recent times, almost all such killings have been linked to the internal security forces of Chechnya, Dagestan, Ingushetia, etc.

I agree that some journalists have been beaten up for reporting the wrong things. Probably Putin’s thugs did this. But the other Presidents murdered journalists. Putin just has a few beaten up. That’s an improvement. Mostly all Putin ever does is shut down opposition media. Most of the opposition TV has been shut down. I think some is still available on cable though. I am not sure about opposition papers, journals and magazines. Actually I believe that the opposition media is alive and well. For instance, I can point you to a CIA-run website that quotes Russian opposition figures on a daily basis. Often they are professors, researchers, journalists or think tank workers. Most are employed inside Russia. They sit there in Russia and shoot off their mouths every day and nothing seems to happen to them. Often the quotes are from Russian papers,  magazines, journals, TV stations or radio stations. I assume that all of these are active in Russia. For the most part, it seems that these opposition figures are left alone. You would be amazed at the sort of crap these people say on a daily basis. A lot of them are openly treasonous, supporting the enemy in wartime. For instance, many support Ukraine in the current war.

The Internet is free in Russia and a vast proportion of Russian language media is run by the Opposition, mostly out of Europe. Finland is a major center for this. Any Russian can call up any Russian Opposition website anytime they want to. Most such sites are also in English because most of their readership is among English speakers. Opposition daily newspapers and magazines can be purchased for sale every day in Moscow. I believe the big foreign press is on sale there. I am sure you can buy a copy of the New York Times in Moscow. It is just that nobody wants to read this stuff.

The truth is that the Opposition has no support. The Opposition leader who was killed had gotten 1% support in the last election. The pro-Western Opposition, which is most of the Opposition that the US cares about, has 5-10% support, closer to 5%. Nobody likes them, nobody wants them. I have known some Russians and I asked them about the pro-US Opposition. They all told me, “Oh you mean the traitors? We don’t call them Opposition here. We call them the traitors. Everybody hates them. They support the US. Here in Russia, if you support the US, you are a traitor who supports the enemy. All Russians oppose the US as an enemy state.”

Putin has not murdered one single journalist during his most recent terms in office. In fact far fewer journalists have died under Putin than under any previous President.

There are deaths of journalists in Russia. A few journalists have been killed under Putin. These hits were mostly mob hits or personal disputes. A few were political killings in the Caucasus.

Since 1991, the vast majority of journalist killings have been in the Caucasus. These have all been related to the insurgency down there. Journalists suspected of siding with the rebels or writing about human rights abuses have been killed. This happens in most insurgencies. US-supported insurgencies are notorious for slaughtering journalists and opposition media. The US murdered opposition media in the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. It is standard Pentagon procedure to target opposition journalists as combatants in modern warfare.

By far the most killings of journalists occurred under Boris Yeltsin. Vastly more journalists were killed under Yeltsin than under anyone else. Yeltsin was a stauch US ally and not a single disparaging word was ever written about him in the US press. He also stole elections. Putin’s elections are much freer than Yeltsin’s, and Putin is far less corrupt.

Putin is not worth $60 billion. This is just flat out fake news. In 2007, Putin had a net worth or $150,000. In 2012, Putin’s salary was $130,000. Surely his net worth now is hardly worth more than it was in 2007. Putin has not used the Presidency to enrich himself, unlike our current Scumbag in Chief. Russia’s Executive Branch is vastly more honest and less corrupt than America’s. What I think is amusing is that Americans who just elected a multibillionaire who has filled his Cabinet with billionaires and multibillionaires, are outraged that Putin is supposedly a multibillionaire himself. It’s rich, but all US criticism of anyone is usually pretty rich. We’re Number One all right. Number One in exceptionalism, self-delusion and hypocrisy.

The Libertarian “Crony Capitalism” Nonsense

Shooter: “All capitalism is crony capitalism, always and forever.” – Well, did WordPress come about because of socialism? Aren’t most of the things you talk about, even the medium you’re on, came about from capitalism?

All civilizations have to have some form of economies to raise capital. No matter how socialist you get, there’ll still be capitalism in there. USSR was not fully Communist but was socialism with state capitalism. Making money is just what nations do. I don’t see how GDP and other forms of wealth are inherently crony capitalism. Sorry, but you don’t get me on this one.

Any normal capitalist country, leaving out various forms of actual socialism and Communism, will generally speaking have an unbelievable amount of crony capitalism.

According to Libertardians, the whole problem with their glorious capitalist system is the fact that government is involved in it. Once the government is involved in the capitalist economy in any way, shape or form, apparently we have some form of “crony capitalism,” whatever the Hell that is. I say that because I have no idea what it is that this term is even referring to. According to Libertardians, if you completely eliminate the state from the picture, then and only then do you have real true capitalism. Anytime you still have a state in the picture somehow, the system is not actually real true pure capitalism. This is some sort of a joke. Their crazy “pure capitalism” has probably never existed, does not exist now and no doubt will not exist in the forseeable future.

If crony capitalism means corruption, well of course capitalism generates corruption. It generates a phenomenal amount of corruption. It does this because the nature of capitalism is to cause a lot of corruption. The corruption is built right in to the system. It’s not a bug. It’s actually a feature! And the more capitalism you have in a country, the more corruption. Countries that went neoliberal and privatized everything typically saw tidal waves of corruption exploding very quickly. They also saw huge organized crime syndicates pop up almost overnight.

Corruption is generally seen at the state level. If it’s in business, it’s called something else. Corrupt officials are usually just stealing from the coffers of the state and sticking the money in their own pocket. How does state corruption help business? It doesn’t do much of anything to business. So how is state corruption crony capitalism?

Fraud is also ubiquitous in capitalism, and the more capitalism you have, the more fraud you have. In fact, fraud, ripoffs, stealing and cheating is so huge of a problem in most capitalist countries that the state typically has to set aside a lot of law enforcement resources to keep a handle on this situation at all. How is the state going after crooked businesses for fraud crony capitalism? That’s not helping business, it’s putting them clean out of business.

They make all sorts of stupid examples of this crony capitalism such as:

The government picks winners and losers in various industries. Of course the government does not pick winners and losers in industries. The market does that.

Companies go to the government and have the government make legislation to help them and hamper all of their competition, resulting in monopolies. This is laughable. The government never does this, ever! Monopolies result because the natural tendency of capitalism is towards monopoly, and illegal monopoly at that.

Businesses go to the government and pay them off so the government will do the businesses all sorts of favors. Actually, the only favors the government does for any of these businesses is in refusing to regulate them! So they are paying the government not to do things. Someone needs to tell me how keeping the government from regulating your industry is crony capitalism.

The government sets minimum wage laws which affect business. Sure, but they usually affect business in a bad way, or at least Libertardians think so, as they oppose any minimum wage. How is the government limiting profits by imposing minimum wages crony capitalism? The state’s not helping the businesses – it’s hindering them.

Universities pick only one vendor, limiting competition. An example given was that a university offered only the local DSL company to students for broadband. Supposedly allowing cable too would allow competition, but as cable and DSL don’t compete anyway, I don’t see how this would help competition. Universities hire vendors for all sorts of things, and I assume for most stuff, they choose a single vendor and go with them. Why buy your textbooks from 50 different companies? Why buy your food from 20 different food companies? And why not pay one company for Internet rather than two companies? It’s so much easier to go with just one vendor. Incidentally most branches of the government do this exact thing.

Government places barriers to entry in industries, vastly reducing competition. Laughable. Apparently this means this zoning laws, business licenses, liquor licenses and whatnot. For instance, we have some corner markets here where I buy my food. No doubt those lots were zoned Business. But to get into that industry, you are going to need a lot of capital. The local store is being sold, and it goes for $1 million. Local gas stations also go for $1 million. That’s the price that the market set for them. The government did not set that price. The market did.

I guess Libertardians would like to get rid of all zoning laws so everyone and his uncle could open their own little “corner markets” on the sidewalks or right here in my apartment complex. That’s not going to work. You need to buy a license, and if they want to sell booze, they need a liquor license. You can’t have everyone opening up a “corner market” out of their apartment. It’s nuts. There would be so much abuse, it’s incredible.

In my town I assure you there is no shortage of corner markets. There is nearly one on every major corner if you include the gas station marts. There are plenty of drug stores in this town. Plenty of supermarkets. Lots of auto repair joints. Plenty of car dealerships. Taco shops and carnicerias everywhere. A number of pizza joints. A small number of nice small restaurants. A number of insurance companies which apparently compete with each other. A small number of bars. A number of different competing banks, including a credit union that gives better customer service than any of them. There are a few different chain auto parts stores in town.

All of these businesses compete on price, service, goods available, quality of product or work, and all sorts of things. The competition is apparently quite ferocious everywhere you would expect it to be. Even the car repair joints seem to compete on price, which is amazing (the Mexicans are cheaper, but they do not do as good of a job).

There is no industry or business in this town that does not have enough players, lacks competition, or needs a lot of new players in the market. There are no monopolies or cases where a business is the only one of its type in town. I don’t understand why we need a ton of new competition. What for? The market’s full up as is. There’s not a lot of room for new players in town, and everyone is competing like maniacs as it is.

Neither business licenses, food inspections, liquor licenses, the cost of purchase of store (set by market and not by state), taxes, nor any of these things are acting as any sort of barrier to entry to business in my city. I might add also that this city is very rightwing and has probably set things up to be as business-friendly as possible. That’s not necessarily a good thing, but it does lower the barriers to entry even more.

I have nothing against WordPress. It is actually possible to be a halfway decent capitalist company, and they seem to be doing that. But they eliminated their tech support, which I thought was pretty shitty.

Crime and Capitalism – The Unbreakable Link

When China went from Maoism to Dengism, the crime rate exploded. The same thing happened in Eastern Europe and the former USSR. The crime rate went nuts in all of those places, and most of them got significantly taken over by Organized Crime gangs.

Now, I agree that there are many great things about capitalism, and in many ways it is better than Communism. But the links between capitalism and crime are very deep. In a nutshell, capitalism causes crime. Period. Now you can say, “Well, I will take that crime increase because I want that higher standard of living,” but capitalist fanboys refuse to even admit to the capitalism-crime connection.

I read a chapter in book for a college course book back in the 1980’s that compared Western European countries and found that the more socialism they had, the less crime and vice versa.

Blacks have a low crime rate under Communism, but under capitalism, their crime rate goes wild. Cuba is 37% Black by genome. Havana is a very Black city. Havana is the safest large city in Latin America. What crime exists is generally property crime. The violent crime rate is quite low. When conservatives  hear that there is little crime in Cuba, they say stupid things like, “That’s because there’s nothing to steal.” That’s not true, but it’s interesting. Haiti is far poorer than Cuba, but the crime rate is vastly higher. The property crime rate is much higher also. If there’s nothing to steal in Cuba, there’s clearly even less to steal in Haiti.

People don’t realize that even in very poor places and very poor countries, there is still lots of stuff to steal. Even poor people usually have some stuff. The property crime rates are exploded in ghettos, barrios, favelas, slums and shantytowns. Clearly there’s plenty of stuff to steal.

I have a theory for why Blacks commit so much more crime under capitalism than they do under Communism, but I will let you commenters take it away.

Amazon Is Evil

I have been hating Amazon.com for a very long time now, and for some very good reasons. Be assured that they deserve every microgram of my hatred. They earned it well.

Anyway, I always knew that Amazon sucked. It’s a prime example of just how shitty your typical dot.com capitalist enterprise is. There’s nothing hip or groovy about tech or net capitalists. Actually the sad truth is that most of them are much worse capitalists than typical brick and mortar businesses which at least tend to have very well done and arranged stores, excellent customer service, a fair returns policy and products that are not blatant ripoffs or scams. Further, most brick and mortar joints are not actual criminal enterprises.

The sad truth is that tech and net businesses tend to have shit products, zero return policy, either zero or horrific customer service, and catastrophically arranged stores that look like they were put together by little children. As if that were not enough, a lot of them (dating sites for example) are simply out and out organized crime.

The number of dot.com businesses that are actually criminal enterprises is simply stunning. The fault of this lies 100% with the Tech Scum themselves, as almost all of them are “Libertarians.” Being Libertards, their motto is “Don’t regulate the Internet!” So the Net is utterly unregulated. What happens when an industry goes totally unregulated? Wa-la! The criminals swarm in like termites! Duh!

So next time you get fleeced by some dot.com crook, thank the nearest Tech Scum Libertard hipster! Aren’t techy hipsters cool? They’re helping criminals loot your bank account! Is that groovy and hip and tats and piercings or what?!

Anyway, Amazon has always sucked, mostly because their store is complete and utter shit, and they can’t be bothered to even fix the damn thing so it functions at all because, you know, if they had a functioning and working store, then they wouldn’t be able to sell to you so cheap! Nothing illustrates the depravity and sleaze of that mindset better than Amazon.

Welcome to Future Shit, where store owners won’t even bother to arrange their stores for you and you won’t be able to find anything! But hey, having a non-functioning store will be so hipster and groovy and techy and future because you will get your products really cheap dude! That is if you can find them!

So anyway, I have always known that Amazon blows, to put it mildly. But it’s actually much worse than that.

It turns out that Amazon is much worse than shitty.

They are actually stone evil.

Welcome to the Workplace of the Future, brought to you by your nearest groovy hipster, where cubicle farms resemble the factories of the 1890’s! Back to the Future!

Really, Amazon is to business as Roosh is to PUA. Roosh is Amazon. Amazon is Roosh. They’re both sociopathic. They both suck. They’re both evil. They are both widely loved by fools who worship psychopaths as the rock stars of the new millennium.

They’re the Future.

Roosh is the Future of Dating.

And…

Amazon is the Future of Business.

I don’t have much more to say except maybe pray you don’t live long enough to see much of this World O’Shit. I’ll be checking out in 30 years if I’m lucky, and I’ll see you all later then. I won’t be missing this damn planet for one second, thank you very much!

“Things Were Great In Cuba Under Batista”

Santoculto writes:

Even in the Fulgencio Batista era, Cuba have lower crime rates as well good social indicators.

I do not know what crime was like in Cuba in the 1950’s but I do know that Organized Crime called the Mafia ran the whole island, so there was a lot of organized crime.

And there was Jim Crow segregation all over the country, even in Havana. And it was as bad as this system ever was in the US South. It was on that level. It doesn’t sound like Black people had it so well.

That whole line about good social indicators in the 1950’s is no good. Life was good if you were a middle class or wealthy person who lived in Havana. Everyone else had lousy lives. There were a lot of urban poor, and they lived like crap. And there was an incredible amount of poverty in the rural areas. Almost all of the doctors were located in Havana and took cash.

It took quite some time for the Castroites to wire up the whole island and give everyone electricity, get everyone into a decent house, get clean water to everyone, get sewage systems built, build the schools that needed to be built and build up the medical infrastructure. It was a great big project, and it took a long time. That right there implies that things were not so cool before 1959 because if everyone had clean water, power, a decent house, a sewage system, and all the schools and medical centers they needed, none of this infrastructure would have had to have been developed, correct?

More on Nigerian Internet Criminals

libertine81 wrote:

What numbers are we referring to here? Can you give me a conservative ballpark figure, and not the percentage, of the amount of Nigerian scammers you’ve encountered? If what I read from this article turns out to be true, then it would be pretty shocking.

The only Nigerian that I have met in my life was decent and honest. I detected no criminal-like behaviour in him at all.

The US Embassy in Lagos is not stupid. They know that is a nation full of lousy people, and many of them are either crooks or scumbags. They turn down at least 99% of Nigerians who try to get into the US. It is very hard to get into the US from Nigeria. We kept getting told this.

The ones they do let in often have an advanced degree. I met two Nigerians, and they were both PA’s with advanced degrees. A Nigerian professional with an advanced degree is likely to be a good person.

I personally dealt with literally hundreds of these scammer idiots. The Internet cafe owners were all in on it. You could walk into 10-20 Internet cafes in Lagos on any given day, and 80% of the people in there would be sitting there scamming Americans all day long. There was a bit of a crackdown, and then the cafe owners pretended to kick the scammers out, but they would just open the cafes at nigh,t and the cafe would fill up with scammers who would stay in there all night long. They would leave in the morning.

We kept trying to get the Nigerian police to do something about it, but they refused to get involved. It used to make us furious that the cops would not do anything about it. The cops all acted like they could care less, and they thought there was nothing wrong with it. Their attitude was, “Why would anyone be so stupid as to fall for something as lame as that anyway?” They had this attitude that it was ok to con fools. The cops were sleazy.

One woman managed to get an idiot arrested. He stole $50,000 from her, and he got nailed with ~6 years in prison. He spent the money on a brand new fancy Mercedes, he drove it to the college where he went to school, and everyone came out and oohed and ahhed at it. The whole crowd knew he stole the money, but none of them even cared.

We were told that the scammers were mostly teenage boys and young men. A lot were working on their own, but some were working for organized crime gangs. There were also some other scammers who were older men. They looked very hard and cold, and they were very, very good. Very slick and smooth. Those were like hardcore criminals, gangsters.

A lot of younger guys were often not very good scammers. A lot of the young guys did not look hard and cold. They just seemed like idiots and assholes.

We got photographs of a lot of the scammers. A lot of the young guys and even some of the hard, cold older ones.

After a while they got some young women in on it too. You would call to talk to your beautiful fake woman, and one of the women would answer the phone.

We were told that the young guys could make some very good money off the romance scamming, sometimes hundreds or thousands of dollars. They would go home, tell their family about it, and their mother, father and siblings would all cheer for them. It was like literally not one human in Lagos cared that these guys were stealing money from Americans.

After a while I started thinking there was something very badly wrong with these people from this country. I do not know what happened to that country, but something went horribly wrong there, and it ended up creating a nation of criminals.

Why I Don’t Like Nigerians

We run a site on Yahoo called Antiscammers. And we dealt with Nigerian scammers on there all day long, every single day. People told us that you would walk into a cafe in Nigeria and there would be 40 people sitting at computers, and 37 of them would be sitting there all day trying to steal from Americans. The number of Nigerians who are full-time Internet scammers would absolutely amaze you.

Also we were told that in Nigerian society, there was nothing wrong with being an Internet scammer. Internet scammers were heroes. In fact, they told us that most everyone was some sort of a criminal over there. You had to watch your back all the time because even your friends and lovers would try to rip you off if you turned your back.

Everyone in the government is a criminal and a thief. They finally found one guy who wasn’t a criminal (How did they find him?) and they were so shocked that he wasn’t a criminal that they put him in charge of the Nigerian Antifraud Unit. He had his hands full, but he hardly prosecuted any cases because the cops were all corrupt too and taking bribes, and they kept letting everyone off the hook. Also he couldn’t really go after any government people because he would have to lock up the whole government.

Anyway, the average people know that all the government is nothing but criminals, all the cops are crooks, and half the people on their block are crooks, so a lot of them just think, “Why shouldn’t I be a crook too?”

Scamming over there is not something a few people do. It’s a way of life practiced by 100,000’s or even millions of Nigerians. Basically the whole country runs on crime. There are so many criminals in Nigeria that there are too many for the country, so they are branching out and moving all over the world to set up shop in new countries where they start doing crimes. So now there are Nigerian crime gangs in most countries. The cops did inspections at the port in Nairobi once, and most of the ships coming in were loaded with stolen property. Plus a lot of the stuff that was legit would be ripped off at the dock or later on.

We dealt with countless Nigerian crooks all the time.

These “good Nigerians” kept trying to join the group, and we would not let them in. Finally we started letting them in. They were “concerned and wanted to fight the scammers.” We let them in, and they ruined the group. We had a lot of women in our group, and we had cam sessions all the time.

Every one of those Nigerian guys would get on cams with the women in our group and whip out their dicks right away and start jacking at the women. It really freaked out a lot of the women, and we had to ban a lot of them just for being perverts. Finally we found out that all the men were “wife scammers.” They were trying to scam a foreign wife from the West. It pretty much boiled down to pay me a lot of money to get me out of her and marry you.

We heard about a number of women who married Nigerians here in the US. All White women. They only marry White women. None of the men worked. They all lived off the women while the women worked. They stayed home all day and spent all day on the Net mostly chasing other women. They were all notorious cheaters, and they cheated on their wives constantly. They were always broke and always had their hands out. They were also very mean, cruel and controlling and, they would not allow the women any freedoms at all to do anything. In a number of cases, they set up shop here in the US, and they started running their usual scams again, this time from the US. All of these marriages failed and were disasters.

In addition to wife scamming, we caught a lot of the Nigerians engaging in other types of scamming. As soon as they got in the group, they started asking for money all the time for this, that and whatever. A lot of them started having “disasters,” home burned down, hospital bills, whatever.

Finally we threw almost all the Nigerians out of the group because frankly every single one that joined was either a scumbag or a criminal. This caused a big blowup in the group where we got accused of being “racist.” Then we got really racist, I mean like no kidding real deal discriminatory racist, and we made up a new group rule, “No Africans allowed in the group.” So we sort of hung up a Segregation Era Jim Crow sign in front of the group.

I went on some forums, and apparently almost 100% of the Nigerians who are on the Net buying stuff with credit cards are criminals. One online retailer said he had 10,000 credit card purchase attempts by Nigerians and I think all except one were with stolen cards. He said a lot of online retailers were turning Jim Crow and having “No Nigerians” and “No purchases by Nigerians allowed” policies. A lot of online retailers were blocking whole IP blocks out of Nigeria. They were banning the whole country from the site. Finally VISA and Mastercard both banned Nigeria and some other West African countries from using their cards because there was so much stolen credit card crime going on.

Nigerians and Gypsies, both, destroyed a number of Internet auction sites. The sites got taken over by Gypsies and Nigerians running fake auctions, and everyone else just left the site. They also got heavily involved in the online rentals business and seriously trashed that one too. And the banks started getting upset at them too because the Nigerians were getting into so many people’s accounts and draining them – the Nigerians would convince people to give them access to their accounts, and then the Nigerians would drain the accounts.

The scams that the Nigerians ran were widely varied and changed almost by the day. They were often quite clever, and it was easy to see how some good, trusting person could be sucked into one of these things.

Almost all of the dating sites, at least the free ones, have been destroyed by Nigerians. If you go onto one of those sites now, no real woman will ever contact you, but a bunch of really beautiful fake women will contact you saying all these wonderful things.

None of these are real women. Instead they are all Nigerian males using model pics and pretending to be women. The fake women befriend men, and then somehow the fake women get the men to send money to them. So the guys send money to the fake women for plane tickets or whatever. It turns out the woman doesn’t even exist, she’s just a fake.

There are also a vast number of fake men on there often preying on older, middle aged, lonely women who are often fat and not very pretty. These are good women looking for a good man. The Nigerians use pics of very good-looking men and then make profiles turning them into dream men with good jobs, kids, big houses and whatnot. They often shower the women with gifts like flowers, candy, etc. All of the gifts are paid with stolen credit cards. Somehow they get these women to send them money, and they steal however much they can steal.

Just about anything for sale on the Net out of West Africa is a scam. Just about any service offered on the Net out of West Africa is a scam.

I had so many bad experiences with these people that I am done with them. Not only that, but we let a bunch of Nigerian noncriminals into our group and 98% of them acted awful right away, wife-scamming, begging money, jerking off at the women, etc.

And those were the supposedly good, law-abiding citizens.

I have met a couple of Nigerian PA’s here in the US, both very bright. They were good people, but they both told me that their country was a shithole. One guy invested in a medical clinic in Nigeria. He left the country for a year, and he went back and his partner had liquidated the place, torn it down, and ran off with hundreds of thousands of dollars.

I realize that a few Nigerians are good, but I have had enough bad experiences with these people for 50 lifetimes, and I don’t have the time to sort through 100 Nigerians to find 2-3 good ones. I have better things to do. Since my experience, I have been avoiding everyone from that land; in fact, I have been avoiding everyone from West Africa in general because I did some research and I found out that the countries around Nigeria are just about as bad as Nigeria.

I figure 50% of population of Nairobi wakes up every morning and thinks, “Who can I rip off today?”

As far as I am concerned, these people appear to be some sort of a criminal race. How they got that way I have no idea, but I am done with them for this lifetime.

How International Zionism Infiltrated, Subverted and Manipulated the US Government to Serve Jewish Goals

The Jews have managed to insert themselves in vast numbers all through every inch of the US foreign policy apparatus. They are also deeply embedded in the Pentagon. Most of them, like Mr. Friedman, are de facto agents of a foreign power, Israel, and almost all of these Jews are wrapped up in the Jewish Lobby that nearly controls US foreign policy.

This process began in the early 1980’s when the Mossad managed to penetrate the US government in huge numbers. At some point a decision was made that there were too many Mossad agents and characters like Friedman in the Pentagon and the Defense Establishment, and efforts to root out the spies were sidelined either out of resignation or surrender.

1982 – Israel Successfully Penetrates the US Government

In other words, Israel penetrated the US government 30 years ago, and the penetration has only increased by a great deal since. The US government has stopped trying to stop the infiltration and at this point has apparently simply surrendered the US government to Israel and its agents like Friedman in the US. Attempts by the FBI to go after the Israeli spies in the government have resulted in firings and career destruction. The word has gone out – the Israelis and their US agents are untouchable.

Under George W. Bush, Jewish power in the US government reached its zenith under the neocons. You know their names. These psychopathic neocons directly manipulated the US government for years on end to serve among other things the foreign policy goals of the Jewish people.

For instance, these neocon Jewish psychopaths declared war on Putin early on. This is because Jews hate Russia.

This hatred goes back to the formation of Israel and US Jews lining up with the US in the Cold War. Many US Jews spied for the US in the Cold War against the USSR. Israel was then enlisted as a Cold Warrior against the USSR.

Israeli special forces psychopaths trained murderous death squads that rampaged across Latin America, torturing, imprisoning and murdering hundreds of thousands of people. The reason for this was that the US was outsourcing the dirtier aspects of US foreign policy to the psychopathic Israelis. The South Koreans and Taiwanese were also enlisted to some extent. At any rate, there was an Israeli hand in back of the mass slaughters of the innocent poor in Latin America in the 1980’s.

The only major country to vote for the US embargo on Cuba has been Israel. Once again, the US-Israeli alliance means that Israel must support all US foreign policy, no matter how reactionary.

While the rest of the world boycotted the reactionary racists in South Africa, the reactionary racists in Reagan’s America and Israel continued to blatantly trade with the apartheid regime. Racists supporting racists.

The Fake Soviet Jewish Emigration Cause

After World War 2, Israel quickly turned to the US, and the USSR turned against both Israel and sadly the Soviet Jews, who were seen as pro-Israel traitors.

Many Soviet Jews began agitating to leave for Israel. It was very difficult for anyone to get an exit permit in the USSR due to brain drain, and the Jews were no exception. Nevertheless, Israel and the US Jews took up this cause of “Let the Jews go to Israel!” Why should the Soviet Jews get to go to Israel? Other Soviets were not allowed to immigrate to the West. Are the Jews special people deserving special rights?

At any rate, the US government soon took up this fake cause about “persecution” of the Soviet Jews by the big bad USSR government who wouldn’t let them leave the country. This became a huge cause celebre for Israel and the US Jews, despite its highly dubious moral grounds – Why carve out an exception for the Jews? Who says the Soviets were “discriminating” against Jews? They wouldn’t let anyone go to the West, not just Jews.

Nevertheless, the US used this phony “human rights” club to beat the Soviets over the head all the while dubiously labeling the USSR “anti-Semitic,” while the truth was that the Jews had it pretty good in the USSR. The Soviets began slowly allowing small numbers of Jews to emigrate. Many of these folks were barely even Jewish, but for some reason, Israel let them in anyway.

Russian Jews As the Worst Jews on Earth

For a long time now, the Russian Jews have been some of the most criminal and racist Jews on Earth. When it comes to tendency towards organized crime and sheer vicious Gentile-hatred, no one beats the Russian Jews. The reason for this may lie in centuries of conflict between Jews and Gentiles in Russia. For instance, Russian Jews pour themselves Bloody Marys out of habit, proudly proclaiming while they drink them that they are drinking the blood of the Russian Gentiles. Russian Jews have a profound vengeance mindset against the Russian people who they think owes them one.

The Jews Declare War on Russia and Loot the Place Bare

Hence when the USSR fell in 1991, Russian Jews quickly formed the Russian Mafia, and many became oligarchs. With the help of Jews in the US (Jeffrey Sacks, psychopathic economist), London (a sociopath named Lord Rothschild) and Israel, these Russian Jews, with the help of quite a few Russian Gentiles, set about stealing just about everything in Russia that wasn’t locked down. By the end of the decade, the state was destitute, looted bare. The Jews and their opportunistic pals had stolen just about every last nickel in the country. They shipped much of the stolen money to their psychopathic Jewish friends in London, New York and Tel Aviv, a sort of a tri-city Jewish nexus for the looting of Russia.

Putin Cracks Down on the Carpetbaggers

After Yeltsin was voted out and Putin came in, VVP began cracking down on some of the oligarchs, Jewish or otherwise. A few oligarchs found themselves athwart Putin. He put them in prison on various charges. They were guilty of all of these charges and then some. Mr. Khodorovsky,a Jewish psychopathic criminal, was one of the worst of the lot. He was sentenced to eight years in prison, and he was guilty as Hell.

Jewish Dual Loyalists Subvert the US Government to Force a Conflict with Russia on Behalf of the Jews

The Jews in power in the US, including psychopaths Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz, began screaming because their fellow Jewish psychopath had been caught red-handed looting the hated Russia. Perle began issuing a number of warlike threats in the name of the US government. In this way, under George Bush, Jews like the psychopathic Perle not only inserted themselves into the highest echelons of the US government but then attempted to use this power to manipulate the US into foreign conflicts on behalf of the Jewish people. Perle and his gang of neocons also became very active in supporting the Chechen rebels against Russia.

Just before Khodorovsky went to prison, he managed to ship most of his stolen loot out of the country. It just happened to go directly into the bank account of a Jewish psychopath named Lord Rothschild.

The Roots of US Anti-Russian Hatred

These are some of the roots of the US hate against Russia. While it is true that the US elites hate Russia for many reasons, part of this mess is that the US Jews are spoiling for a fight with their old nemesis, Russia.

Romance Scams Australia

Looks like the Nigerian scammers are branching out and heading all over the world to do their scams. And now they are nailing people in Australia too. They have nailed many people in the US and some in the UK, France and Germany.

A real problem is that they have seriously infested nearly all of the dating sites. I know that Hotornot has been taken over completely. Any new dating site is soon swarmed with them. On some sites, up to 90% of the profiles are fakes.

The sites are almost complicit because they refuse to police their sites for scammers to the point where they will not even remove the profiles of known scammers. They think it is a waste of money to protect their customers from criminals and their attitude towards profiles is the more the better. This is the rationale behind allowing the sites to fill up with criminal, fraudulent, or inactive profiles. Even if half the profiles are crooks are dormant, they still get to say, “4 million profiles.” Online dating is a phenomenally sleazy business.

It is often not so easy to tell the fakes from the real people on these sites, although we have gotten pretty good at it down through the years. In 2005, a woman and I set up a Yahoo group to try to catch the scammers. Another group called Romancescams sprung up at the same time.

Over the years, I have met many people who have been victimized by these people, men and women of all ages. A number of them were quite cautious and thought they had gone through all the checks, but when some beautiful woman tells you she loves you, it’s hard to resist. A lot of victims are depressed and suicidal. I and others have worked with and counseled many of the victims. We used to do this all the time, so I am pretty sympathetic to the victims though I suppose most would just say that they are idiots.

Not everyone turns over their life savings. Others paid the people ~$50/month for years. Doesn’t seem like a lot, but it adds up to $2-4,000 over a period of years. Now with Tineye and reverse image search it is a lot of easier to catch their fake photos. We can also often tell by the way they write their profiles who they are.

In some ways, they are utterly brilliant, but in other ways, they are dumb as rocks. In Nigeria, it is a whole vast industry. In quite a few of the Internet cafes, you will walk in there and maybe 90% of the people are sitting there for hours on end doing nothing but trying to steal from Americans.

There are many other variations on the scam. The Nigerians also took over eBay auctions with a variety of scams and nearly ruined those too. A very large number of Gypsies were also involved in the eBay scams.

Even if you have no sympathy for the marks, I would think that one would be concerned that entire online industries and huge sites like eBay have been destroyed by criminals. I find that pretty infuriating.

It really does seem like nothing good comes out of Nigeria. One online retailer said he had had thousands of orders from Nigeria, but not even one of them had been legit. Many online sellers simply block all IP’s coming out of Nigeria. There is so much theft coming out of these nations that large credit card companies have cut off entire West African nations from being able to get credit cards. In Nigeria and Ghana but especially Nigeria, the police do little or nothing to try to catch the scammers and often they are in with them. The police do not seem to think this is a crime worth investigating.

A number of Western women have married Nigerian men they met online. In every case I heard of, it did not work out. The men sit at home all day while the women work to support them. They get high, drink, and sit in front of the computer all day trying to scam people. They live off the women and refuse to work. They are extremely jealous and control the lives of the women tightly. And they all habitually cheat on their wives. 99.5% of Visa applications from Nigeria are denied by the US Embassy. This is the way it has to be.
