The State Bank of the Russian Empire in Moscow. This building now houses the Central Bank of the Russian Federation.
THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION took place at a time of
remarkable financial stability and progress in the Russian Empire.
Russia was the only major power in the world not indebted to central
bankers concentrated around the famous Rothschild banks. The Russian
government printed the nation’s money, regulated the money supply
(unlike the monetary system in America today) and issued low interest
loans through commercial banks.
Festival in a Siberian village, c. 1900
In his book, “A History of Central Banking and the Enslavement of
Mankind,” (Black House Publishing, 2014) Stephen Mitford Goodson
describes the state of Russia before the Bolshevik uprising:
On June 12, 1860 The State Bank of the
Russian Empire was founded with the aim of boosting trade turnovers and
the strengthening of the monetary system. Up to 1894 it was an auxiliary
institution under the direct control of the Ministry of Finance. In
that year it was transformed into being the banker of the bankers and
operated as an instrument of government’s policy. It minted and printed
the nation’s coins and notes, regulated the money supply and through
commercial banks provided industry and commerce with low interest rate
loans. Its vast gold reserves, the largest in the world, exceeded the
bank note issue by more than 100%, except for the year 1906. By 1914 it
had become one of the most influential lending institutions in Europe.
Not unexpectedly Russia had the smallest
national debt in the world. The following table reflects the number of
rubles of debt per inhabitant.
By 1914 83% of the interest and
amortization of the national debt, of which less than 2% was held
abroad, was funded by the profits of the Russian State Railways. In 1916
the total length of the main lines was 100,817 verst or kilometers.
Russian commercial and canal tonnage of 11,130,000 in 1910 exceeded
British merchant tonnage of 10,750,000.
In 1861 Tsar Alexander II (1855-81)
abolished serfdom, which at that time affected 30% of the population. By
1914 very little land remained in the possession of the Russian estate
owners, who were mainly the nobility. 80% of the arable land was in the
hands of the peasants, which had been ceded to them for a very small
sum. This land was held in trust by the village commune or mir. However,
after the passing of the Stolypin Act in 1906, peasants could obtain
individual title with hereditary rights. By 1913, two million families
had availed themselves of this opportunity to ac1uire what became known
as “Stolypin farms.” Nearly 19,000,000 acres (7,689,027 hectares) were
alloted to these individual peasant proprietors by the land committees.
The Peasants’ State Bank, which was described at that time as the
“greatest and most socially beneficent institution of land credit in the
world” granted loans at a low rate of interest, which was in effect a
handling charge. Between 1901 and 1912 these loans increased from 222
million rubles to 1,168 billion rubles.
Agricultural production soared so that by
1913, Russia had become the world’s bread basket as the following table
reveals. [Not included. The table shows that Russia produced 42 percent
of the world’s barley, 67 percent of its rye, 31 percent of its wheat
and 30 percent of its oats].
Russian agricultural production of
cereals exceeded the combined production of Argentina, Canada and the
United States by 25%. In 1913 Russia had 37.5 million horses – more than
half of all those in the world. She also produced 80% of the world’s
flax and provided more than 50% of the world’s egg imports. Mining and
industrial output also expanded by huge margins. Between 1885 and 1913
coal production increased from 259.6 million poods (16.38 kg) to 2,159.8
million poods, cast iron production rose from 25 million poods in 1890
to 1,378 million poods in 1913 and petroleum production rose from 491.2
million poods in 1906 to 602.1 million poods in 1916. From 1870 to 1914
industrial output grew by 1% per annum in Great Britain, 2.75% per annum
in the United States and 3.5% per annum in Russia. During the period
from 1890 to 1913 industrial production quadrupled and Russian
industries were able to satisfy 80% of internal demand for manufactured
goods – a perfect example of autarky. Throughout the last 20 years of
peacetime imperial rule (1895-1914) the increase in Gross Domestic
Product averaged 10% per annum.
With the Russian State bank creating the
people’s money out of nothing at almost zero interest; as opposed to the
rest of the world where central banks allowed parasitic private banks
to create their nation’s money supply at usurious rates of interest, it
comes as no surprise to find that in 1912 Russia had the lowest levels
of taxation in the world. These very low rates of taxation also attest
to the efficiency of the Russian government. Furthermore throughout this
period of state banking there was no inflation and no unemployment.
[Table not include. Total tax rate in
Great Britain was 26.75 percent per inhabitant, compared to 2.66 percent
per inhabitant Russia.]
An independent study by British lawyers
concluded that the Russian Code of Laws and judiciary were “the most
advanced and impartial in the world.”
Elementary education was obligatory and
free right up to university level, where only nominal fees were charged.
Between 1906 and 1914 10,000 schools were opened annually. Russian
universities were renowned for their high academic standards.
In labor relations the Russians were
pioneers. Child labor was abolished over 100 years before it was
abolished in Great Britain in 1867. Russia was the first industrialized
country to pass laws limiting the hours of work in factories and mines.
Strikes, which were forbidden in the Soviet Union, were permitted and
minimal in Tsarist times. Trade union rights were recognized in 1906,
while an Inspectorate of Labor strictly controlled working conditions in
factories. In 1912 social insurance was introduced. Labor laws were so
advanced and humane that President William Taft of the United States was
moved to say that “the Emperor of Russia has passed workers’
legislation which was nearer to perfection than that of any democratic
The people of all races in the Russian
empire had an equality of status and opportunity, which was unparalleled
in the modern world. His Imperial majesty Tsar Nicholas II (1894-1917)
and his state bank had created a workers’ paradise that was unrivaled in
the history of mankind.
On November 7, 1917, the Rothschilds,
fearful that replication of this extraordinary example of freedom and
prosperity would destroy their malevolent banking empire, instigated and
financed a Judeo-Bolshevik revolution in Russia (50), which wrecked and
ruined a wonderful country and resulted in the deaths by murder and
starvation, according to Alexander Solzhenitsyn, of 66 million innocent

Southron Paleface called me a pineapple a couple of posts ago that elicited a hearty Laugh Out Loud In teh Real Life from me.
He followed up the with this: "...see, racists can make racist nicknames
against each other. in the good ol' days that meant camaraderie!"
Commenter Victor Michaelson weighed in as well: "It reminded me of the
America I grew up in, where guys could razz their buddies and it wasn't a
Damn straight you raciss crackers!
We got a special word for you melanin-deficient and solar-sensitive folks here in Hawaii: Haole (pronounced "How-Lee").
From the greatest movie ever filmed in Hawaii
Most folks that have never been to Hawaii, or who have only visited
briefly on vacation, have usually only heard of the word haole
associated with only negative, racist connotations...the equivalent of
the "N-word" for white folks.
That's simply not true. It's a very versatile word and can be used as a
simple adjective, a term of endearment or employed as a provocative
epithet. As a fair-complexioned (but not totally pale) hapa-haole mutt,
I've had the term used on myself in all of these contexts at one time or
another. Yet, whenever haole folks come to Hawaii and find themselves
being referred by that term, they almost always take immediate offense.
Take this guy for instance:
More haole den haole...
Shua ting, brah, you one human...but you still one haole.
But seriously, let's take a closer look at where this term came from.
It's a common myth that the term comes from the Hawaiians who first
encountered Captain Cook and his crew's pale faces, they called them
Ha'ole, a compound word made from combining Ha- meaning breath, with 'ole meaning without.
This legend is up for debate, as the linguists who study Hawaiian
language and the Pidgin English have belabored to dispel the commonly
accepted origin. To the credentialed classes, haole is it's own Hawaiian word, and it simply means foreigner:
So if we are to literally go by the textbook, haole really
doesn't have anything to do with white skin. In theory, yes, but in
practice, no. Thanks to the deluge of immigration from all corners of
the globe mixing and miscegenating for a couple of centuries, Hawaii is
the so-called ideal "melting pot" our modern day SJW's and progressives
say they are supposedly working towards with the rest of the world. In
such a chaotic environment of so many different skin tones, hair and eye
colors, race is the first way we immediately identify each other, and
in that context, haole means white.
I do believe Hawaii is the ideal "melting pot" society....but there are
two distinct features about what we have here that makes it much
different from the progressive/SJW ideal.
First thing that makes it "work" is we are all race realists, race
conscious and racist to the core. It's the only way we can all get
along. We don't try to uphold some unrealistic, mystical feeling of
holiness attributed to the supposedly ideal paradigm of "color
blindness." In fact, we have the exact opposite. We're more color aware,
we're all equal opportunity racists. We LOVE our stereotypes and our
racist jokes. At least that was the Hawaii I grew up in. Because of
this, we all have similar words like haole that are used to designate
all the various races that call our islands home. We got similar words
for the Japanese, Chinese, Koreans, Samoans, Micronesians, Filipinos,
Puerto Ricans, Vietnamese, and Hispanics. Most of these terms are just
like haole - they can serve as simple adjectives or spitefully intended
perjoratives. In most cases, you just add the word fuckin' in front, and
the harmless adjective turns into hateful, bigoted and racist
Here's a song from the 70's from Hawaiian music's most popular act of
that era, the Beamer Brothers. with one of their most popular songs that
is still sung and played by musicians at parties and backyard jams
everywhere in the islands to this day. In this song, all of the major
ethnic groups and their sterotypes regarding their cultural practices
and socio-economic status are fair game for good natured-ribbing:
The ending of the song really highlights the main point of this post here:
One thing I when notice 'bout this place
All us guys we tease the other race
It's amazing that we can all live in the same place
I sadly see more and more of the next generation of local folks
accepting the progressive SJW mind rot programming of "equality" and
"anti-racism," and our common culture is suffering for it. For decades,
local stand up comedians made entire careers out of night club routines
and television specials making fun of all the races that made up the
multi-ethnic society of 20th century Hawaii. There were no sacred cows.
We were all fair game...and it had us all laughing our asses off. Yeah,
we may have been laughing at you...but then one minute later, it was my
turn and you were now laughing at me too. And thus, we were all both
laughing at and with each other.
This locally produced tell-a-vision show from 1984 could be considered a
good representation of the high point of Hawaii's functionally racist
society. It was a childhood favorite of mine, and I was pleasantly
surprised to find a clip of it posted on youtube.
In case you didn't figure it out yet, while black folks are "foreigners" they are not haole. We call them Popolos.
Hawaiian island/urban legend goes that the first African descendants
who came to our shores where of the particular hue that was so dark, the
Hawaiians thought they looked purple. The Hawaiian word for purple is popolu...hence
popolo. I don't know if it's true or not, but I do know this: just like
the word haole, popolo can be used interchangably as mere adjective, a
term of endearment, or a race-based slur.
Speaking of stereotypes, we local folk also understand that most popolos
that recently arrive from the mainland for are far more sensitive about
race than any other race. We have met more than a few black folks that
quickly figured outpopolo was the Hawaiian word for those of
African ancestry, and many immediately equate it with the N-word in
significance. Not true though. If we are trying to be deliberately
offensive, we'll use the N-word like any other garden variety racist in
the world today.
Nevertheless, if we local folks are trying to talk about black people
and there may be some within hearing distance when we are conversing who
may possibly get offended, we may sometimes say Olopop instead of
Popolo (popolo said backwards).
As I mentioned earlier, I was pleasantly surprised to find the preceding
clip on youtube, because it is not commercially available anywhere here
in 2015. This clip was undoubtedly someone using their smartphone to
video clip their VHS or betamax copy of the program. You see, in the
last decade or so, our formerly somewhat cooperative society of equal
opportunity racism has been infected with the PC mind virus, and the
SJW's holy church of blessed colorblindness has caused many folks to
scream victimhood at racial humor that was one of our mainstays of local
Hawaiian culture of the 20th century. So many of these race-based shows
and stand up comedy routines are no longer available or reproduced or
re-released anymore, out of fear someone or another will get offended
and file a lawsuit to recover damages for their soiled panties or sand
filled ass cracks.
That being said, one of the original local comedians from that earlier
era of racist harmony still seems to be going at it on youtube, and this
clip will give you a pretty good rundown on our history of ethnic
diversity and multi-cultural adaptation with regards to linguistics and
cultural attitudes of our multi-cult society:
This comedian, Andy Bumatai, was one of the most popular stand up
comedians and local tell-a-vision personalities of the 80's. In 2015,
this kind of comedy is increasingly coming under fire. Note his
disclaimer at the beginning of the clip. Even 5-10 years ago, such a
disclaimer would not have been necessary. Times they are a changin'.
More and more of the younger generations of Hawaii's locals have been
assimilated into the PC-SJW Borg by globalized mass media programming
and public education brainwashing.
No siree, it's the 21st century, and we can no longer hurt anyone's FEEEEEEEELLLLLIIINNGS.
Everybody is so fuckin' sensitive. It sucks. I want my openly racist
society back. More and more we see letters to the editors and magazine
articles and tell-a-vision programs pushing the "colorblind" paradigm
and that all of the racist stereotypes that bonded us all together in
common racism in 20th century Hawaii, are now being considered more and
more to be thoughtcrime and badthink that must be expunged from our
consciousness. It makes me sick to see Hawaii's uniquely harmonious and
cooperative society founded on a solid sense of racial differences,
slowly and inexorably being subsumed by the homogenized and globalized
Brave New World Order mass media culture programming of hypersensitivity
and ludicrous "equality."
Up until recently, we didn't have a pretend, fake ideal that everyone
supposedly openly touts while harboring secret racism in their carefully
guarded hearts and circumspect tongues. No siree, here in our island
paradise, we embraced bigotry and race-based differences whole-heartedly
and without reservation.
Our code word for it nowadays is "local humor" I've been to parties
where people asked if it were okay to tell "local jokes," basically
asking permission from all present if it's okay to tell race-based
stereotypical jokes. Most are still down with the program...but more and
more people are starting to reject what was once a proudly and openly
racist society...and from where I sit, we 'aint better off for it.
See...one of the reasons our society of mixed races "works" is because
no matter what race you are or what culture you come from, we have this
overriding culture of "ALOHA SPIRIT" that most people quickly
assimilate to. In many ways, it's similar to how all the different pale
face crackers assimilated into the AMERICAN DREAM in the 19th century.
Anglo-Germanic-Iberian-Mediterranean-Slavic-Aryan-Nordic migrations all
arrived with different cultures and languages, with the only thing in
common being melanin-deficient and solar-sensitive skin. But buying into
the American dream eventually gave us what many now consider simply as
white Americans (or Canadians).
Just as the miscegenation of all those Euro-strains of paleface resulted
in a generic, homogenized race called "white" we have the same thing
here in Hawaii....but it 'aint called Hawaiian. Only those of us with
actual Half-Savage Aboriginal blood in our veins can be called Hawaiian.
Those who are born and raised here, but have no Hawaiian blood, and are
for the most part the Oriental descendents of the plantation workers
imported by the haole sugar barons as third world serfs, they are
something else - "local."
Here are some examples of this common culture of "Aloha spirit" that define "local" off the top of my head:
* We get rush hour traffic as bad as anywhere else in our modern world.
But nobody honks their horns here...ever. Unless it's due to an extreme
situation like an imminent accident or trying to catch someones
attention in a dire situation, we just don't use our car horns like
that. If you find yourself in Hawaiian rush hour traffic and you hear
someone honking their horn in frustration... well there's the fuckin'
haole (regardless of the race of the actual driver.)
* When you try to merge into traffic, put on your traffic signal and in a
manner of moments, someone will let you in, guaranteed. A couple of
fuckin' haole's may blast past you and not let you in, but eventually a
local is going to slow down and hand wave you in. We even let haole's
merge, but then curse them when they don't show appreciation for the
* Speaking of traffic in Hawaii, here's one of our more popular bumper stickers:
* Other than traffic customs, we have a generalized culture of common courtesy like holding the doors open
for complete strangers, and before the ubiquity of cell phones, we
always stopped to help fellow motorists with broke down cars and flat
* When we eat in self service restaurants, fast food joints and plate
lunch places, we clean up our tables and throw away all of our rubbish.
The first time I went to the US Mainland at age 18, one of the first big
culture shocks I experienced was seeing fast food patrons leave their
trays and rubbish at their tables when they were done eating for the
workers to clean up.
These are just a few examples of what I'm trying to get at. The "melting
pot" ideal can only work when their is a common ideal that various
racial stocks strive to assimilate to.
As the comedian stated in the preceding clip, there are two kinds of
haole, local haole and haole. I believe it actually goes further than
skin. No more, no less.
As a perjorative, however, it really means a white skinned person who
doesn't conform to local norms aka "No more aloha." Most of us mixed
race mutts and half savage racists of Hawaii got no problem with local
haoles...or even haoles who are not born and raised, but demonstrate an
affinity for the Aloha spirit ethos. Many a local who 'hates' haoles in
general, end up marrying one and making hapa-haole babies. Despite
having a paleface spouse and paleface children, will still "hate" haoles
(the NO ALOHA kine.)
For real kine...some of my best friends are Japs, Pakes, Soles, Kanaks,
Pordagees, Buk Buks, Yobos, Haoles and Popolos. I also know folks of all
said races who I wouldn't piss on if they were on fire.
I once got
into a scrap with a filipino kid in middle school, because he called me a
fuckin' haole. I told him to fuck off, I'm Hawaiian, and that he was a dumb flip
buk buk whose parents came here to pick pineapple for $.05 a day and
that he should take his ass back to the Philipines. We
punched each other in the face a few times, the teachers broke us up,
and we later became friends when we had to serve detention together. He
would often greet me as "haole boy" and
I'd call him buk buk, and we'd laugh as we shook hands.
It's pretty much how we roll here in Hawaii.
In summation, racial awareness plays an important role in Hawaiian
society, but it's not the be all end all. If you "get" what Aloha means,
you can fit and find a comfortable space amongst others, regardless of
To wrap things up, I offer you this quick guide for HBD-Hawaiian Style.
Since most of the previous section of this post discussed the term
Haole, Whites are omitted here to avoid excessive redundancy. We talked
enough about da haoles.
Blacks: Popolo, Olopops. Most popolos come to
Hawaii as stationed military personnel. Most usually don't get it any
better or worse than any other minority in Hawaii. If they get involved
in an aggressive or violent conflict, the N-word may get used on them,
but popolo is usually preferred. There are no real popolo jokes unique
to Hawaii, as most are just popular black jokes that just substitute the
word popolo for the N-word.
What do you call 1000 popolo skydivers jumping out of da airplanes all at da same time? Nightfall.
Chinese: Pake ('Pah-kay'), Chink, slant-eye, slope, Cha Wan
(chinese name for the rice bowl haircut), Chang. Terms When used
perjoratively, Pake and Chang denote stinginess, miserliness, an
unhealthy love of money and unscrupulous in acquiring it. Most Jewish
jokes will work in Hawaii by substituting Pake. Wot da difference between one Pake and one canoe? Canoes sometimes tip.
How do da Pakes name their children? They copy da sounds of da cash register! Ching! Chang! Chong! Whats da odda way dey name da kids? Dey throw silvah weah down da stairs!
Filipinos: Flip, Buk Buk ('Book-Book'), Manong (Mah-nong).
Notorious for eating goat and dog meat (particularly black dog), avid
gamblers and chicken fighters. Also notorious for living with 30
extended family members in a 3 bedroom townhome...or buying a 3 bedroom
house and building large extensions that resemble Spanish villas, so
they can house 30 more family members.
You heard of da new Filipino cookbook? 101 ways for wok your dog. What do da Buk Buk's call da dog catcha truck? Meals on Wheels
What do Buk Buk's call da Humane Society? (local animal shelter) Foodland! (local grocery store chain)
Japanese: Japanee, Jap, Buddha-head, rice-eye, bolo head, nip.
Haole-fied Japanese are called katonk or banana (yellow on the
outside, white on the inside). The largest homogeneous ethnicity block
in Hawaii. Least likely race to date, marry or even socialize
significantly with all the other races. Back in da school days, if you
wanted to start a scrap with a jap, you said this:
What you said, Buddha-head? Eh, no lie, rice eye! Jews:Haole. Since most Jews are fair skinned,
we don't give them their own racial category. They're just haole. And
we don't really tell Jewish jokes here either. That's what Pake jokes
are for. But that does remind me of the one Jewish joke I once heard at a
party...told by a hapa-haole Jew (he was half Jewish, half Popolo, born
and raised here):
Know how copper wire got invented? A Jew and a Pake were fighting over a penny.
Koreans: Yobo, Kim Chee, Kink (Korean chink), Seoul
Brother (A Korean that acts black). Because Koreans were relatively
late comers in terms of immigration compared to the other Oriental
ethnicities, Korean jokes are not that popular, but there are a few.
Yobo is the Korean word for sweetheart, but in Hawaii, it's used as a
derogatory reference. Most korean jokes are puns off of the word.
Heard of da Korean police man? Yobocop!
Samoans: Sole (So-lay). Due to their reputations as very large,
strong and fierce fighters who are ready to scrap at the drop of a hat,
there are no real derogatory terms for Samoans. Sole is what Samoans
call themselves, and locals usually can use the term casually....but
even using that word wrong with an easy to anger Samoan could prove
volatile. Most Sole fall into two categories: 1) super nice, easy going,
humorous, fun loving and gregarious. 2) Ultra violent, looking for
trouble, very easy to anger and always ready to give Palagi and others a
sase (strike)! Nevertheless, there are a large number of Samoan jokes
that mostly focus on making fun of their speech. These jokes are usually
only told in hushed whispers after checking around to make sure none
are around to hear....
Heard of da Samoan Accoutant? Tua Tua Isa Foa!
Heard of da Samoan who fell off da couch? Sole Fe Lafa Sofa!
Portuguese: Portagee, Pordagee, Pocho, Porcho. Haoles often think
they get the worst of the prejudice jokes in Hawaii. They're wrong.
That would be the Pordagees. Infamous for being obnoxious by talking way
too much, talking without thinking first, and considered the dimmest,
least intelligent race. Take any Polak joke and substitute Pordagee and
you have typical Hawaii pordagee jokes. Despite the joking reputation,
Pordagees are usually quite sharp and witty, and many of the most
popular comedians are proud Pordagees who tell the best-loved Pordagee
You heard why get no more ice in Portugal? Da old Pordagee lady with da recipe when die. Know why da Pordagee farmer was feeding his sheep scrap metal? He was trying for raise steel wool.
As I said, their reputation is one of dim wits....but here's a Pordagee joke that belies the stereotype:
Know why Pordagee Jokes are so short? So Hawaiians can understand them.
A Pordagee guy told that one to me after I told him a Pordagee joke. Touche!
Hawaiians: Kanaka, Kanaks, Kanaka Maoli. Oft stereotype is
lazy, indolent; don't like to work. When the haole sugar plantation
owners needed a workforce to farm their sugar, there were not enough
Hawaiians to work because so many had died from introduced diseases like
small pox, measles and STDs. And those that did survive, would still
only work 'Hawaiian style." We can broke ass, but we goin' take one mid
day break when da sun is hottest in da sky. The haole plantation owners
didn't like that one bit, so they brought in all the other immigrants
who would work from sun up to sun down with barely a break for minimal
Take any lazy jokes about blacks and substitute Hawaiian.
How come da Pakes no like marry Hawaiians? Dey no like kids too lazy for pick sugar cane. How come da Buk Buks no like marry Hawaiians? Dey no like kids too lazy for pick pineapple. How come da Popolos no like marry Hawaiians? Dey no like kids too lazy for steal.
'Aint diversity grand?
Remember: "Nobody Listens to Turtle".
And Conan's view of the races/race relations:
"There is no racial bigotry here. I do not look down on niggers, kikes, wops or greasers. Here you are all equally worthless."
