In a recent interview the chairman of the German protection of constitution, Hans-Georg Maaßen, mentioned, that they have noticed a number of German written blogs with a pro Russian attitude and he wonders, who is behind them. To put this straight i want to assure him, that although this blog is edited in English for international readers he is not administered by a Russian agent sitting in St. Petersburg, but by a free thinking German citizen, who always tries to figure out what is right or wrong in a ever more complicate becoming world. "Those, who know nothing must believe everything" seems to be the maxim here in the West and this little blog ( being monitored by the BND would be too much honour, really ) tries to counterpart that. In my opinion it's right, what doesn't benefit the financial elite, but serves the interests of people from both sides at the table and is considered fairplay or just decent human behaviour in tune with existing laws. During the current Ukraine crisis it is obvious with whom to side with and everybody who joins the aggression against Russia should question his moral standard. The stakes for the West seem to be very high for a multiple of reasons and this reflects in a behavior sometimes completely void of integrity. So to cut a long story short, i would anytime share a bottle of Stolichnaya with Wladimir Putin, while i never could stand the presence of Obama, Merkel or BND boss Schindler (" The separatists are responsible for the clash of flight MH 17 !" Oh dear, oh dear, ... ) among others for a minute, thank you.

Weekend Sports

The National Hunt season is meanwhile in full swing and unlike its flat counterpart, where the best thoroughbreds only run a handful of races, before they are fulfilling their stud duties, jump horses can be welcomed back for many years. One of them is Colin Tizzard's stable star CUE CARD ( left ), who defends his title in the Betfair Chase in Haydock on Saturday. I really like his chances and backed him @ 4.***UP On the same card i also have a dabble on the classy VOLNAY DE THAIX ( FR ) to win the Betfair " Fixed Brush " Hurlde @ 5 .***4th While betting on football it pays to stick with the big guns. Naturally odds are on the short side, but usually these teams deliver . I have a bet on the following 5-fold : Manchester City to beat Swansea / Chelsea to beat West Bromwich / Bayern Munich to beat Hoffenheim / Barca to beat Sevilla and Feyenoord to beat Dordrecht @ 2.66 ***WON

Postage Saving Tip

It is a little known fact, that only 4 cents are necessary to send a 20 gramm standard letter within the boundaries of the unified Germany, if the postal code has been written in square brackets. This has to do with a agreement from 1892, negotiated between the former German Empire and the Universal Postal Union. The German Empire endured the collapse in 1945 and still enjoys legal capacity despite the capitulation and a missing organisation, while the BRD is not ! a legal successor, but only a trust institution and as such not able to cancel the above mentioned contract - hence a pair of 2 cent stamps will do. However as someone, who doesn't mind to pay the correct price for a fast reliable service i will keep paying the regular price of 60 cent.

Wladimir Putin and the Homo Clevonicus

A few days ago, Wladimir Putin conducted a game-changing speech in Sotchi, leaving no doubts that he is sick and tired of dealing day-in, day-out with the nuisances of Western governments. Since it was a lenghty discourse Russian blogger Chipstone wrote up a summary , which can be read here. Let's be honest, he is absolutely right by calling the USA a major threat to the world peace. As a self proclaimed democratic model country, election fraud is rampant there and under the pretext of fighting terrorism it turned into a police state, where cops feel free to relieve travellers of their cash or raid private homes without valid reasons. When Russia recently undertook a couple of maneuvers the Western media was quick to call it " sabre rattling ", while Putin wants to be prepared evaluating his opponents well enough to know they could easily go gung-ho and start a military conflict, because of their stalled One World Government plan, to defend the Petrodollar, because of a crumbling finance system or to pamper the arms industry to mention a few. When US vice president Joe Biden said, the USA needed to force the EU to impose sanctions on Russia against their will and the EU complied it must have been a major disappointment for Putin, that for instance Germany jeopardized excellent ties built over decades in favor of a rogue state. Now bashing politicians is certainly popular in most countries and more than justified within the EU. With very few exceptions all bigwigs were inserted to execute a project masterminded by a lot of shady characters assembled in secret societies. The aim is to eliminate the middle-class, so that besides a tiny upper class only a single kind of human being is left - the HOMO CLEVONICUS. This sort has been made mentally numb through constant consume of sports, rubbish TV and junk food with only the most basic of instincts still intact - he won't be much of a challenge for the authorities. Putin himself might have his flaws as a former KGB official, but i definitely feel a personality like him is required in the EU to bring things back on track or should it be normal that kids in school barely learn, how to write and read properly, but expressions in sex education, which would drive a flush of embarassment in some hardcore actors face ? Here in Germany two books aroused attention lately. The first is named " If the Germans would know this ... ( We had a revolution tomorrow ) " and the other " Germany completely off his mind " by Akif Pirincci. Their sales numbers show, that more and more people have a sneaky suspicion that they are fooled by politicians not working for, but against them and demand answers now. Way to go, but at least a ray of light is visible at the end of the tunnel
