UDBa and ORJUNA Are Destroying General Glasnovic

“It is better to die standing, than live on your knees”

Translated by INA VUKIC

Let’s start with a fist to the head, and then we will return to the text later. Namely, a GREAT FRAUD, rigging, is being prepared by MOST’s orjunas (ORJUN= Organisation of Yugoslav Nationalists) and Dragan Covic’s udbas (UDBa=Yugoslav Secret Police). Their aim? To prevent General Zeljko Glasnovic from becoming a representative for the Diaspora in the Croatian Parliament. A group of young partisans, called Ćuprija, has nominated comrade Milovic to run as candidate for the 11th Electorate.  What does this have to do with the psychiatrist and the team (Psychiatrist = Bozo Petrov, leader of MOST party)? Nothing. But all this is well thought out in the the Yugoslav Covic’s workshop, with anaemic Tito’s obligatory blessing.

Who is this Milovic? Witnesses say that even Sejdo Komšić is an Ustasha for him. Little Tvrtko is a suitable Sarajevo SERB, whose grandfather Bogoljub (from the vicinity of Nevesinje) was a member of “General Draza’s (Mihailovic) guard”. After the war, he took off his cockade, put on a five-pointed star and became a high-ranking (communist) party official. Chameleon Milović was hired by his friend Čova on his portal Dnevnik.ba to glorify his character and work. Why did Uncle Tvrtko suddenly decide to be a “Croat”? Because for some, it has become a lucrative occupation. After the UDBA lost the exclusive right to represent almost 4 million Croats in the diaspora (General Glasnovic saw to this) in the last elections, they are now threatened with losing all 3 seats. And the worshipers of the lame must not allow that.

Since they do not compare with nor can they be measured at all by the quality of candidates on the “General Glasnovic’s Independent List”, their only way to somehow get into Parliament is FRAUD! First, they (unsuccessfully) tried to discredit Mrs. Ina Vukić, and now they are targeting our General. The only living LEGEND on the Croatian political scene. Not to go on and on. Don’t fall for UDBA provocations and think for yourself. “General Glasnović’s Independent List” is the only guarantee that BiH Croats and the Diaspora will have their 3 authentic representatives in Parliament for the first time. These candidates will really fight for their rights this time, not just keep quiet and turn up to pick up the paycheque. FULL STOP.

“Here’s the dawn, here’s the day, here’s Plenki and his bosom friend Bere …” The TV debate between the leaders of the two largest parties “from this area” was so important that I didn’t even watch it. Why? I had to take the rubbish out and paint my wife’s toenails. Joking aside; what’s the point of watching and listening to two assholes, lying to themselves and us? Secondly, what if anything is the purpose of such nonsense? So that the communists’ opinion doesn’t change the last minute and they vote for the “rigid right-wingers” from the HDZ? Or vice versa? Totally a show of missed opportunity and an unnecessary show. It would be better if had they broadcasted “Chapel bonfires” so that we can watch Prsan cursing the Germans’ mother.

What makes people betray their loved ones ideals? After Zdravka Bušić, who spat on everything her brother Zvonko, a TRUE CROATIAN HERO, fought for, the daughter of the First Croatian President, Dr. Tudjman spoke. “Plenković is following in the footsteps of my father Franjo!?”, said Nevenka. This should have been sent immediately for alcohol and drug testing. If the results were negative, she should have been urgently referred to Vrapče for observation (Vrapce=Psychiatric hospital in Zabreb). Because it is not possible that the majority of the nation is blind and does not see Plenki’s “successes”? Apart from the material and spiritual destruction of Croatia there are really no positive things to be seen. But we haven’t crushed ourselves with cleverness, either.  We chose Stjepan Mesic (twice), Squid (Ivo Josipovic) and Frenzied (Zoran Milanovic). Yesterday, comrade Ivo demanded the return of “the Bloody locksmith’s city squares” (bloody locksmith = Josip Broz Tito) in Zagreb? What the fuck is he … to demand something? I also demand that Red Rijeka change its name to Pavelic’s. What do we do now?

Mainly, I can see from the headlines that BiH Croats have again become a sought-after commodity. Even those two who stayed in Sarajevo. Comrade Bero, unprovoked, also mentioned the “third” (entity). Our mothers grieve because of such Delilahs. And the mothers of those who trust them are ever sadder. Well, out of 151 MPs, there will be a lot more old faces than new ones. Pupi (Milorad Pupovac) is the only one safe for now. He has been sitting in Parliament for so long that he now represents BLM, sorry Serbs, and he has become part of the furniture. So, when the cleaners wipe the benches, they remove some cobweb from the “beautiful” Milorad with a little “powder” as well. Our Pupi is tricky, fu..ed by duck Daca. If asked, I would clone General Glasnovic in 150 copies. And I would leave one MP. Mr. Stazic. Purely out of a joke, to make him uneasy.

It is noticeable that YUGO TV companies (and they are all like that) do not differentiate between candidates and treat them all equally. But in penises. Thus, the guest of Dnevnik was the “smart” Puljak, for whom, as a rule, women, children and dogs vote (if he promises them a bone). This still belongs in comedy but could become a tragedy in a couple of years. It should be borne in mind that this strange beakman and his wife are publicly funded by the “Open Society” of Soros George. So, nothing is ruled out. Not even that the big-nosed boy may one day become President. Ah, the Frenzied! He is our best example that we are living in a wonderland.

And for all those who lean to the right, the only space for promotion is FB and Twitter. Of course, only if the “reputable” Faktograf allows them to do so? When we add to this the fact that the “independent” Apis is counting the votes, there is no need to doubt the regularity of the elections. But it doesn’t matter. Let us be alive and healthy and everything else can stuff itself. Because Grunf concluded long ago, “If you want to win, you can’t lose.”

If you’ve had problems with blockages, deletion of profiles and postings on FB, get ready for much worse things. Namely, about a hundred large companies withdrew their ads from FB, due to “hate speech”. But watch this now, OURS and not theirs!? Translated into Croatian, so far, we have been able to freely express our views, and in the future, they will punish us!?  I cross myself with both the left and the right hand. What to do? We can freely share recipes and pictures of our pets. And let’s forget about politics. Unless you have Tito’s picture on your profile. This is a time of absurdity, injustice and minority terror over the silent majority. For the average, normal people, in this “advanced”, technocratic and censored world of theirs, there is no more room.

Every realistic and reasonable person is aware that we cannot expect a miracle in this election. The maximum we can get is the entry of several exceptionally high-quality people and patriots into the Parliament. But, that is something, also. Because change doesn’t come overnight. Our basic problem is lack of time. Because some things (like the election law) MUST change as soon as possible. Not today, not tomorrow – but yesterday. And then again we come to the famous 2/3 majority, which unfortunately we can only dream of.

Alternative? Referendum. I have already written about this but I am intentionally repeating it, because it is extremely IMPORTANT. We know in advance that they will rob us, but we have no other (legal) means left. This time let’s not target the number needed, because they will make fools of us again. If they say they need 400,000 signatures, let’s raise the bar to 600,000 at the start. Surely there are that many of us left? Whatever tricks they use, they can’t theoretically steal 200,000 signatures. Even if the shrunken George counts the votes alone. Since I proudly enjoy my marginal status, I can’t do more than this. Because to achieve something like this, we need strong people with a name and a surname and as many associations as possible, who are still working for the benefit of this country and people.

I can’t brag that I have followed the campaign regularly, but I haven’t noticed that someone has shattered themselves dealing with today’s main problem, GLOBALISM? Or have we already been sold (of which I am convinced), so there is no point in even mentioning that plague? What’s next? The invasion of Jihad warriors in our beautiful country, under the slogan TLM (Terrorists Lives Matter). This time I’m dead serious. When I see what HERD is doing with impunity across America, why would we be an exception? Because the Marxist-Islamic revolution is underway. For now, we’re still watching it on TV. And maybe tomorrow from the balcony? Never say never. Especially today, when nothing living has any meaning or logic.

Amazing things are happening in America and something is definitely wrong. Republicans look more and more like the HDZ. And betrayal is present at every step. Just three words on Twitter explained it all. “The lone warrior!” (LONELY WARRIOR), Trump wrote. Abandoned and abandoned by all. CIA, FBI, Pentagon…He was even betrayed by some Republicans, who are afraid to oppose the red-black gang. The question is, does this great man have any authority left?

Just a few months ago everything looked ideal. So, if someone thinks that the virus and the protests are “spontaneous”, let them think again. Pity, because with Trump’s departure, the last straw of salvation would go. One needs to prepare for the worst, because SATANS (globalists) are the worst thing humanity has ever encountered. Exaggerating? Let’s wait a year or two so we can recapitulate the events. If we survive…

I watch Infowars regularly, and Alex Jones is right when he says the Civil War has already begun. The only country in the world without police, where street law is in force. I watch, in disbelief I hit myself on the head with a glass Coke bottle. Hell, it’s a tragedy…

Klapa songs came to my mind. Stone, rock, bread crust, drop of oil…There is a lot of truth in that. But again, it all depends on the person. Are her eyes hungry or not? I remember when after the war I did some intellectual work (unloading trucks, passing on gas cylinders to manual workers…). Because you had to eat something and pay the bills. The boss was normally a private individual and cracked like slipper. In addition to 3 houses, a new Mercedes and who knows how many millions in the “box”, his favourite saying was: “Poor me, I won’t even have enough money to buy salt!”. And we worked from 7 in the morning until we finished. Sometimes until midnight. Luckily, the joke among “working people and citizens” was top notch. And we didn’t miss out on beer either. You come home all soiled and dead, and you don’t even have the strength to take a shower. But on every first day of the month, 2000 kuna in the pocket. Like a gentleman. And again, I was more optimistic then than I am today. For F sake. The ways of the Lord are mysterious.

After the war, most of us thought positively, and after the battlefield, everything seemed easy to you. We were once ordered to walk over a hill and take up a new position. At night, of course, so that the Chetniks do not see us. Just as we descended, dawn broke and an old man was walking towards us. “Children, how did you get here?” He asks. “Through this forest, Grandpa.” “Well, all that is a minefield.” We just looked at each other, crossed ourselves and continued on…

Each of us has experienced something inexplicable in life. “Happiness,” some would say. “Coincidence,” others would say. And is that really so? For atheists, yes, because they don’t believe in anything. But I would never change places with them. Because they are afraid of death, and I am not. I don’t think about it at all and I don’t know what waits me there. But I know there is “something.” By nature, I am a hard realist and logician, so I am not able to describe that “something” in words. Few people have that gift. The first person that comes to mind is Mr. Ivica Ursić. His texts heal the soul, and in a few sentences, he explains EVERYTHING. That is that natural gift, which cannot be learned in any school.

It’s still dark outside, the normal world is asleep and I talk to myself over coffee and a cigar. I’m afraid I’ve gone a bit overboard, because my basic rule is: “Write as short and as substantively as possible and don’t bother people.”

Because, as Winston Churchill said, (while in the toilet at the bus station in Čapljina (BiH)): “The three most important things we need to do every day are:”

  1. Wake up
  2. Survive
  3. Go to sleep

Croatia: Dandelion-like First Round Local Elections Results

in Croatia’s political landscape

To some people the dandelion is simply a bother, to others it is something that means a great deal. Overall, blow on the dried dandelion flower and particles fly all over the place, with no definite pattern to rely upon unless their landing is scooped into a meaningful shape.

Were one to focus on the content of local election campaigns in Croatia during May 2017 one could not but see that national issues weighed more heavily than local ones, particularly in the city of Zagreb, the relatively largest voting population in one place in Croatia, which by the same fact could be used as some sort of barometer flaunting political issues affecting Croatia. A trend to be expected given the HDZ-led (Croatian Democratic Union) minority government crisis that still strongly flutters in the air and, indeed, the polls for the capital Zagreb 21 May dealt a major blow to HDZ’s candidate for the City of Zagreb, despite the fact that HDZ had some significant first round wins sprawled across regional or rural areas.

The first round local elections results give no clarity as to which way the second round polls on June 4 will fall. Confusion and deeper political mayhem may well result, giving the message that serious changes and new blood-lines in the political climate and practice are essential to Croatia’s future.

In about mid-May 2017, dealing with his minority government’s crisis that had as part of the crisis lost its coalition partner – MOST List of Independents, Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic announced that the seats of the coalition partner in government will be filled after the local elections so that a workable government could be formed and snap-elections avoided. The first round of local elections took place on 21 May and second round to be held 4 June. The government and political crisis have led to an evident widening HDZ’s division lines (those for and those against Plenkovic as leader, particularly) and the shedding of some key members either through expulsions from the party or through self-propelled walk-aways, as well as first round victories in 42 towns/local councils and entering into second round in 44 others suggesting a serious or at least unpredictable at this stage voter based loyalty.

The results from 21 May polls do not at this stage give much clarity as to what to expect at the second round. Virtually all established political parties are at the losing end of the confidence spectrum, but in Zagreb the new player in the field – Bruna Esih list, which had several widely politically trusted right-orientation names (Dr. Zlatko Hasanbegovic, General Zeljko Glasnovic) with a strong history of determined actions towards clearing Croatia of the still-prevalent communist mindset, as well as war veterans of note such as Marko Rados, Croatian culture devotees such as Dr. Ana Lederer, and others. This new right stream headed by Bruna Esih is about the only force in the local elections mix that commands attention as it steers attention towards hope that political leadership in Croatia may indeed develop the badly needed positive changes, which in essence spell out a more assertive building of democracy and Croatian independence self-determination. Bruna Esih’s list saw comparatively excellent results in the first round, which were twice higher than those of the HDZ candidate Drago Prgomet. She won 10.98% of the votes, and Prgomet – 5.60%. In all practicality this means that Esih’s list will occupy several seats in the City of Zagreb Assembly, forming an important element upon which the final winner of the Mayor’s chair (incumbent Milan Bandic/ “365 party” or Anka Mrak Taritas/Croatian People’s Party HNS) may indeed need to depend upon to get things done. But even if such collaboration does not occur, encouraged by the solid results at local elections, Bruna Esih team has announced the formation of a new political party to be represented nationally in next general elections.

This may well herald wider than Zagreb favourable voter sentiments to come, similar to those that come with fresh new, needed, force on the map of Croatia’s political organism that is in desperate need of clear leadership. Similar perhaps to those when third political forces such as MOST or Live Wall were perceived as the forces that would break up the two-party monopoly, which left great majorities of disgruntled citizens, to put it mildly. However, MOST and Live Wall have failed dismally to push for changes the nation needs and needed.

To further demonstrate the evident influence national political issues and ongoing national government crisis have had on local elections one can also look at the appalling results MOST’s candidates have had. MOST – list of independents – is seen as orchestrating two government crises within a matter of six months and because of it second snap elections within the same period are a likely outcome. MOST ‘s success (if it can be called that) at 2017 local election is meaningless and degrading, a far cry from the success they achieved at previous local elections, from whence MOST group climbed the ladder of power within the national parliament elections that had followed. The other quick-rising club from last national elections is the Live Wall (Živi Zid) group and they too have come up against a very telling rejection at 2017 local elections. SDP or Social Democratic Party (the other major party besides HDZ) stays on relative ice when it comes to local elections even if it chose not to have candidates in a number of council areas – it did not experience embarrassing losses but apart from its stronghold city of Rijeka where its candidate seems certain to win the second round, it can bathe in no pool of laurels and this adds to the pressure against its president Davor Bernardic to move aside for fresh SDP leadership blood.

While most political parties and independent candidates invested a great deal of energy on focusing their council election campaigns on national issues, local elections, after all, should be a vote for local councillors who will be looking after local services and issues that matter in neighbourhoods and in people’s daily lives. That is, the essential city services, the support provided for most vulnerable people, and the local economy. But this does not seem to be the case for Croatia, which suggests that everyday lives are saturated with political or ideological issues and need to be aired one way or another before life can settle into some orderly processes one expects in a democracy.

Having said all this, Plenkovic’s resolve to stay in government power as long as possible, regardless of HDZ member splits from it occurring almost constantly, could see coalition with Milan Bandic’s party, which already has members in the parliament, if Bandic wins second round polls for Mayor of Zagreb. This would mean that HDZ would link up with the party whose leader – Bandic – has been linked to corruption on a number of occasions although evidence of that has not yet percolated to the visible surface. The eventual fall of the government and new elections would mean a new cycle of uncertainty over Croatia, another postponement of vital reforms – but then again, HDZ or SDP in their governing track records have not convinced the people they have what it takes to install and achieve needed reforms. Perhaps, a major overhaul in skills-oriented leadership of HDZ is needed if HDZ is to retain government for the remainder of its current mandate. Nevertheless, all arrows for reforms seem to point to a third political option, which does not yet formally exist – regretfully. Ina Vukic

Croatia: Will The Door To New Government Be Kicked Open Or …

I’m bursting with anticipation and curiosity waiting to hear whether Dr Zlatko Hasanbegovic will continue as minister for culture in the new Andrej Plenkovic led government of Croatia. Smaller parties and independents had huddled around HDZ (Croatian Democratic Union) and its leader Andrej Plenkovic with relative ease and a rather miraculous speed to support HDZ minority government receive the needed parliamentary majority goodwill for forming a government. But that government, i.e. the make-up of the government Cabinet (Ministers) is still a big enigma. It has remained an enigma even though the new Croatian Parliament had been convened and officially constituted on Friday 14 October 2014, with Bozo Petrov (leader of MOST/Bridge of independent lists as Speaker and HDZ/Croatian Democratic Union’s Miljan Brkic, Gordan Jandrokovic and outgoing Speaker Zeljko Reiner as deputy Speakers of the new parliament). Not even an inkling, yet, as to which of the elected members will be filling the all-important roles of government ministers. We are reassured, however, that the persons to serve as ministers in the new government will be announced during the coming week.

“They” do say that good things come to those who wait. I shall hold destiny responsible to deliver on this.

Prime Minister designate, Andrej Plenkovic, has – amidst copious amounts of media speculation regarding who will and who will not get to serve as minister in his government – made it publicly clear last week that “I am the PM designate and nobody will determine the appointment of ministers,” (but me). Of course, it’s a given that a PM must choose those people to serve as members of his/her government executive team he or she can best work with in order to achieve outcomes from the government’s set goals or program. The top goal for any government is to serve and promote national interests and Croatian national interests at this stage are significantly marked by the need to rid the country of the remnants of the unproductive and undemocratic practices still present due to habits instilled by the former communist regime of Yugoslavia.

Things appear to be looking up in this sense as we learn that the delay in naming future government ministers may well be associated with the restructure of public administration and government being decided upon and announced. I.e., as announced by Plenkovic last Friday night Croatia is to have 19 out of 20 current ministries but a new ministry for demographics, family, the youth and social politics to be created from existing set ups with view to thrust into the front lines the solving of the falling birth rate and increasing emigration. To achieve a lesser number of ministries functions of some previous ones have been merged into new ones (merger into one ministry of economic, business and trade portfolios; the return to ministry of Croatia Veterans as opposed to the current veterans affairs, etc.) There will also be six instead of four Central government offices. State Secretaries will replace the current deputy-minister positions and the role of Assistant to the minister will in time transition into Head of Administration and will be filled via public advertising and competition, which in essence represents a very significant positive step in securing incumbents of important public administration position on the basis of merit (not political affiliation); the Heads of Administration will have the status of Servants (public servants), which means that after ceasing to work in that position the incumbent would not enjoy extended remuneration as assistants to ministers receive now.

After Social Democrats’ representative suggested that the new structure will mean increased number of central bodies, thus suggesting increased government spending, Andrej Plenkovic replied: “There’s no intention to increase administration or expenses but the key intention is in increased rationalisation, increased outputs and de-politicisation and professionalisation of public administration,” reports HRT news.

During this time of delay in naming the ministers of the new government HDZ and its leaders would do well in heeding the words and warnings regarding Croatian priority national interests contained in the statement released Saturday 15 October 2015 by the Croatian Bishops’ Conference. Croatian Bishops have called for the Croatian people and society to unity and maturity so that it would have the strength to endure the newly staged attempts in creating myths and in the spreading of lies. That is not a call to “return to the past”, but a motivation and a wish to free ourselves from the burden and the weights from the past that place a burden upon our today and blur our vision for the future, emphasised the Bishops’ statement.

The Bishops consider the current regard towards the victims of the communist regime, especially when it comes to mass graves and the remains of those that perished, in Croatia and in other places, especially in Slovenia, expressed by the relevant Croatian organisations and by the Croatian state generally as unacceptable and damaging,” says the Bishops’ statement in which Croatian Bishops emphasise that the upgrading of Greater Serbia myths neglects the suffering of the Croatian population during the Homeland War, the destruction of property…and the inadequate acknowledgement of Croatian veterans in the creation of freedom and independence. The Bishops call upon the appropriate Croatian government bodies to engage the necessary effort in order to place a light upon the truth of Jasenovac camps as well as upon the post-WWII sufferings. With this, the victims would receive due respect and the truth will usher in more peace into the families whose members have suffered…Bishops say.

It is a fact that Yugoslav communists who call themselves “the liberators” had from 1945 destroyed the Croatian civil society and committed the crime of murdering the country’s intelligence (the part that was not pro-communist). Hence, hundreds of priests, writers, journalists, publicists, cultural and social and political elites, engineers, lawyers, teachers etc. were liquidated, while others fled the country in order to escape sure death. The communists knew well that their success in ruling the people  depended heavily on getting rid of the part of the country’s intelligentsia that was against communism. In modern Croatia, stripping Croatia of its most deserving son for its independence and democracy – Franjo Tudjman – had been a purposefully vilifying agenda for several years before Tudjmans death and after his death from 2000 when former communists’ win of government as well as Stjepan Mesic’s win of the country’s presidency followed. The official cultural pursuits or the ministry of culture under the left and centre-left leadership had played a large part in making sure that the condemnation of communist crimes does not pick up ground in any significant measure within the Croatian society. Ministry of culture has been and is a government body through which all publications, books, films, cultural associations etc must go in order to see the light of day. Thankfully, in his short role as culture minister of Croatia’s short-lived previous government Zlatko Hasanbegovic had commenced the process of bringing balance into the ministry’s (the society’s) pursuits of Croatian truth, which of course meant that communist crimes needed to become an agenda to be openly and without reservations dealt with on the basis of facts and truth. This move of course earned him terrible blows and branded him as ultra-nationalist, Ustashe, fascist, revisionist …

 

In other words, within six months of being Croatia’s minister for culture Hasanbegovic had declared his resistance to the cultural hegemony, or upon the dominant influence the communist Yugoslav left side of Croatia’s political playing field had wielded since late 1990’s when the so-called “detudjmanisation” commenced. Because of this, Hasanbegovic had been a target of terrible attacks within Croatia and beyond – staged and implemented by former communists and their mates, including the head of Istrael’s branch of Simon Wiesenthal Centre – filled with hateful lies.

Although Andrej Plenkovic as designated PM has made it abundantly clear that he will not be influenced by anyone’s pressure in naming the ministers of his government and that the ministers will be those persons he himself chooses one can only pray and hope that his choice for culture minister is Zlatko Hasanbegovic. Having demonstrated some good insight and analysis skills so far one can only trust that Plenkovic has come to a realisation that by not naming Hasanbegovic as minister also means that he is joining the posse of liars against Hasanbegovic and also means joining the posse of anti-Croatian propaganda. Plenkovic’s move in the next couple of days will be interesting to watch because all eyes in Croatia and beyond seem fixed upon this very issue of whether Hasanbegovic is to continue as culture minister. If he does appoint Hasanbegovic then Croatia has a new lease of life for positive moves towards ridding Croatian public administration and associated processes of communist regime’s progress-stifling remnants. If he does not appoint Hasanbegovic then Croatia’s reputation and daily reality are at a terrible loss and suffer a damaging setback in moving forward from the burdens of history that must be cleared – not swept under the carpet. Not naming Hasanbegovic as minister will also mean that Plenkovic either directly or vicariously agrees with the false allegations of neo-fascism/revisionism made against Hasanbegovic and Croatia. And so I wonder if the imminent announcement of new government ministers will feel like the door has just been kicked open (with unexpected and niggling surprises) or that it has just been opened – with the right mix of people eloquently showing through.
