Everything You Wanted To Know About Zelensky But Was Afraid To Ask

This is a recent Mint Press News podcast, featuring Max Blumenthal. As usual I don’t agree with everything said here. I post it because most of what’s said is true, and it’s an important counter to the tidal wave of pro-Ukraine war propaganda. There hasn’t been propaganda like this since the Vietnam war. The psychos are pumping out this relentless stuff because they are trying to sell the Ukraine War to people in the West, at a time when many people in the West can’t afford to feed and heat themselves…

    Hi Rob, Happy Christmas.
    Things are dire, here in the U.K.
    three primeministers, so far, this year.
    Inflation out of control, and many on strike, almost like a General Strike.
    You can’t even get an ambulance if you break a hip.
    I see Paris is again out of control.
    hocking news that the E.U. Socialists are lying and robbing?

    • Rob Godfrey Rob Godfrey says:

      Bonjour Freddy. A happy Christmas to you as well, and a merry New Year (!).

      Things are pretty dire all over the place. 2023 is going to be interesting. I’m still confident, though, that we will get through this

  2. Freddy says:

    Shocking that the E.U. senior M.E.P.’s have their sticky fingers in all sorts of pies?
    I bet this goes very much wider and deeper than just the latest Qatargate scandal.

  3. Freddy says:

    Seems like the war clouds are closing over the skies of Europe.
    France runs out of Nuclear Fuel?

    Four French units – Tricastin 1 (915 MV), Cruas ((915 MV), St Laurent (915 MV) and Dampierre 4 (890 MV) were switched off on Thursday.

    At the moment EDF is constructing a huge new Nuclear Plant in Somersetshire.
    I expect the United Kingdom will buy the Uranium from France.

    Rob, is it true that some of the Uranium used in French Reactors comes from Russia?

  4. Freddy says:


    Where does the Uranium come from?
    What would seem an easy question, the answer is not quite so straightforward.
    It would seem, much is mined in Northern Africa from the former Colonies of France but some of the former colonies of France would rather deal with Russia or China.
    So France may have to do deals with Russia/China to get its fingers on the Yellowcake?

  5. Freddy says:

    I think France has a Drone facility in Niger

    Arlit attack
    A few minutes following the Agadez attack, two suicide bombers disguised in military fatigues drove their car into an Areva uranium mine in Arlit, the largest such mine in the country, operated by a French company. The car exploded in front of a pick-up bus carrying workers to the facility. Besides the two suicide bombers, one worker was killed and sixteen others were injured. The plant was forced to shut down from the damage caused by the blast. The main target was said to be French officials operating at the yellowcake plant.

  6. Freddy says:

    La base aérienne 101 Niamey

    This is the base from which the Reaper Drones operate in Niger.

  7. Freddy says:

    “An intelligence base in Niger’s capital, Niamey, with over 300 men. The Niamey airbase is strategically important because it hosts drones in charge of gathering intelligence across the entire Sahel-Saharan region.”
    It would seem that Macron has called a halt to French involvement in
    “Operation Barkhane”, last month.
    101 Niamey

    Let us hope France can still obtain enough Yellowcake?

  8. Freddy says:

    E.U. corruption out of control

    French President Emmanuel Macron said: “I think we need to know the facts, understand who is implicated and then take the appropriate measures.”

    German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock also warned: “Europe’s credibility is at stake.”
    The President of the European Parliament Roberta Metsola
    has launched an urgent procedure to waive immunity of MEPs following request from authorities in Belgium in connection with Qatar-linked corruption investigation.

  9. Freddy says:

    The E.U. Elites are always telling other people, even other countries, how to conduct themselves, it must be quite annoying for the Elites
    to find themselves in the corruption spotlight?

  10. Freddy says:

    Looks like Germany is getting as lawless as France.

    The Berlin district of Neukölln was worst-hit by the violence and local mayor Martin Hikel spoke of conditions similar to a civil war, with rescue workers being lured into ambushes.

    He told the newspaper Die Welt that the violence was less about migration issues and more to do with socially disadvantaged areas. He warned of the risk of moving towards a situation similar to that in suburban areas of France.

    Rob, no rioting in the U.K. but there is an incredulity at how bad everything has gone over the last few years, especially the last twelve months, inflation is through the roof, never-ending strikes and shortages of foods/drugs/fuels.

  11. Freddy says:

    We, the U.K have two aircraft carriers, they each cost about three and a half billion pounds.
    We, the U.K. have sent three and a half billion pounds to The Ukraine for them to piss down the drain, yet we are in recession?
    You can’t even get an ambulance if you fall and crack a hip.
    I know this is true as my sister inlaw fell and cracked a rib, just after Christmas, she had to get her aunt to drive across London to collect her and cart her to hospital.

    Yes we give free money to Ukraine.

    The average house price in the U.K. fell for the fourth month in a row in December, as the rising cost of living and higher interest rates hit home.

    December prices fell by 1.5% compared to November, meaning the average house price is now £281,272, said Halifax.

    House prices are dropping as people come to understand we are in very deep shit in the U.K.

    The bank said uncertainty about how the cost of living will impact household bills, as well as rising interest rates, is slowing the housing market.

    It expects buyers and sellers to “remain cautious” over the coming year.

  12. Freddy says:

    Hello Rob, Germany seems to be nose-diving, this year, partly it is being driven into the ground by sanctions imposed on Russia.


    It seems the immigrants are angry.

    A 32-year-old Iranian man has been arrested in Germany for allegedly plotting an “Islamist-motivated” attack.

    The man had been plotting to use cyanide and ricin to commit a “serious act of violence”, “North Rhine-Westphalia police said in a statement.

  13. Freddy says:

    Germany did not like Fukushima.
    Germany decided to get out of the Nuclear Power generation business.
    Germany decided to move away from Coal, which was the basis of Germany becoming so powerful in the eighteen hundreds.
    Germany decided to go for Russian pipeline Natural Gas.
    The pipelines have been blown up.
    Germany is in a Green-Dilemma?
    They now have too many people for the available jobs.
    Germany is being De-Industrialised, quickly.

  14. Freddy says:

    Things continue going downhill in the United Kingdom, so many public services on strike.

    “Around 20,000 members of the two largest ambulance unions in England and Wales started a 24-hour strike at midnight”

  15. Freddy says:

    More lunacy in France

    Paris stabbing: Several injured by crazed knifeman in attack at central Gare du Nord station.

    I wonder if the state of the World, is making people lose their marbles?

  16. Freddy says:

    Things bad in London.

    Another multiple drive-by-shooting in Camdem at a funeral

  17. Freddy says:

    French unions stage a day of mass strikes and protests on Thursday 19/01/2023
    against Macron’s plans to push back the age of retirement.

    Well it seems that Italy, Germany, France and the United Kingdom are all deep in the shit. Many other countries too, like Turkey.
    Surely this can’t all be down to the Pandemic?

  18. Freddy says:

    The government of the United Kingdom have declared they are to send fourteen Challenger tanks to Ukraine.
    I have written to my M.P. to enquire if he considers we, the U.K. are at war with Russia.
    The reply was

    “We the U.K. are not at war with Russia”

    I am not reassured.

  19. Freddy says:

    Macron to spend 413 billion euros
    on the army, in a single year.
    Yet France is on strike/in turmoil.

  20. Freddy says:

    Hi Rob, your site seems to have attracted idiots.

    So, today we learn that Russia is going for Zaporizhzhia.
    We also learn that Germania has allowed Poland to send its tanks into The Ukraine,
    no German or American tanks are being sent in to Ukraine.
    Russia is re-building its missile defence ring around Moscow as they feel the Americans will first strike The Crimea, then go for Mother Russia proper.
    We are sleep-walking in to World War Three.

  21. Freddy says:

    Ambulances on strike again today in England.
    Soon everyone will be on strike.
    Inflation through the fucking roof.
    Mass lay-offs now coming quickly.

    How did we descend in to this Hell?

  22. Freddy says:

    Hello Rob, you are being hacked by nutters.

    Firefighters and teachers to now strike along with the nurses and ambulance people, in U.K.
    Government ministers sacked for not telling “The Whole truth”
    How have we descended so far.
    U.K. almost a basket case.

  23. Freddy says:

    Well it is a toss-up between France and the United Kingdom,
    which state is in the worst grip of striking.
    The arse is dropping out of the English Pound.
    We are in a terrible fix but can France beat us to the bottom?

  24. Freddy says:

    Now who would have thought there was corruption in the E.U.?
    E.U. parliament lifts protective immunity of two M.P.s linked to ‘Qatargate’ graft scandal

    The snake goes much deeper and wider that just Qatar & North Africa, it is RIFE.
    Belgium, Italy, Greece, just for starters.

  25. Freddy says:

    is now in London, it is expected that he will ask the U.K. to provide him with fighter jets.

  26. Freddy says:

    Hello Rob, maybe you could comment about the three quarters of a million people out on the streets to protest against MACRON?

    • Rob Godfrey Rob Godfrey says:

      Bonjour Freddie. The protests (which run into many millions of people) is not just about raising the pension age from 62 to 64 (the pension age in the UK is now 68). It’s also about the ‘cost of living’ crisis. This kicked off more than 4 years ago now, when the Yellow Vest movement started.
