“..a place removed from the USA to set up bio-weapons labs when our own government called an at-home “moratorium” on gain-of-function research in 2014..”

National Assisted Suicide (Kunstler)

“Joe Biden” and company might have prevented Russia’s “operation” there by simply reiterating what NATO itself had declared: that Ukraine would not be invited to join the alliance. But Ukraine has been a special client of the USA since 2014, when we changed-out a pain-in-the-ass government there. Since then, we’ve used Ukraine as an international money laundry, a proxy forward base for NATO, and, apparently, a place removed from the USA to set up bio-weapons labs when our own government called an at-home “moratorium” on gain-of-function research in 2014. Part of the forward base activity in Ukraine since 2014 was the training and arming of the 600,000-troop Ukrainian army, one of the biggest armed forces in the world, which Russia now feels constrained to disarm and neutralize.

How successful Russia might be in that endeavor, with an operational force of about 200,000, is the subject of a propaganda war being waged one level removed from the action on the ground. The reality, as one might expect from such basic troop numbers, has been an onerous grind for the Russians. American javelin missiles have proven deadly to Russian tanks and armored vehicles. But, contrary to the narrative script of CNN and The New York Times, Russia is hardly “losing” the contest. Russian forces are in the process of kettling up Ukraine’s most potent units, the notorious Azov battalions, along the Donbass line in the east. There are a lot of them. They are surrounded, cut off from their central command, and now given the choice of surrendering or being slaughtered. For the moment, it is Ukraine’s choice.

For the Russians, this is, as they say, an existential matter, something they have faced before and understand the stakes of — think Napoleon and Hitler. The US has shown, at least, an exorbitant will to antagonize Russia using Ukraine. This, too, is yet more insanity. In Mr. Putin’s early years as head-of-state, Russia asked to join NATO, in Russia’s quest to be treated as a normal European nation after overcoming 75 years of Soviet insanity. Request rebuffed. Twenty years later, and many instances of antagonism in the meantime, Russia had enough. It is doing something America no longer can do: establishing boundaries. Ukraine will not be used as a platform for further antagonisms. Our response: wreck the global economy starting with the international money system, and possibly bring on a world famine by destroying supply lines for fossil fuels and things made from them, such as fertilizer.

Russia’s demands are clear. Respond to them, and then you can have your meeting.

Kremlin Rejects Proposed Zelensky-Putin Meeting (ZH)

At a moment Russian forces are believed to be on the cusp of taking the major southeast city of Mariupol, after the Ukrainians rejected the Kremlin’s terms of surrender for the city, a fresh statement from the Russian side has yet again cited “no significant progress” in ceasefire talks, while stating Moscow is not ready for a proposed meeting with Zelensky. The invasion which kicked off on Feb.24 and shocked the world will reach a full month by close of this week. Starting last week reports emerged that Turkey was working hard to get Presidents Putin and Zelensky at the negotiating table in face to face talks. Given Russia’s overwhelming manpower and military superiority, despite reports of serious losses, it’s not expected that the Russian leader would agree to any top level negotiations like this anytime soon.

“For us to speak of a meeting between the two presidents, homework has to be done. Talks have to be held and their results agreed upon,” Putin spokesperson Dimitry Peskov said Monday, according to Reuters. “There has been no significant progress so far.” Last week Peskov had said that “when there’s progress, we’ll tell you” – in reference to the continuing negotiations taking place between lower level delegations toward reaching a battlefield ceasefire, or at least longer lasting local ceasefires. As for the Ukrainians, according to comments given to CNN on Sunday, Zelensky told Fareed Zakaria he’s “ready to talk to Putin at any time.” But Zelensky is simultaneously urging Europe to ban Russian energy and ratchet up sanctions measures even more, pleas which have without doubt angered the Kremlin.

CNN detailed of the interview, “His offer came more than three weeks into a war that appears to be entering a new, more deadlocked stage on the battlefield. And while that counts as an extraordinary military success for outgunned Ukraine, it will also leave its cities and people even more vulnerable to brutal Russian bombardments.” And more via CNN: “It’s a stalemate. But we should note it’s a bloody stalemate,” ex-CIA Director David Petraeus, a retired general who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, said on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday. “Also, arguably, it’s a battle of attrition.” For now each side is blaming the other for failure to significant progress through five rounds of talks: Peskov on Monday also suggested that Russia was more willing to engage in talks than Ukraine. “Those [countries] who can should use their influence over Kyiv to make it more accommodating and construction at these talks,” Peskov said, according to Reuters.

US Sanctions China Officials Hours After Demanding Beijing Condemn Russia (ZH)

Apparently not content with diplomatic war on one front with Russia, the Biden administration appears ready to escalate with China following on the heels of last week’s persistent accusations that Beijing was mulling cooperation with Moscow on weapons resupplies for its Ukraine operation, as well as assistance on Western sanctions evasion. Monday afternoon Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced more visa restrictions on Chinese officials related to prior charges that state authorities are overseeing the ethnic cleansing of Uighurs. It’s certainly interesting timing in terms of pulling out the the human rights card, given that throughout last week the admin’s China criticisms seemed exclusively focused on its “fence-sitting” over Ukraine.

Blinken called on China to “end its ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang, repressive policies in Tibet, crackdown on fundamental freedoms in Hong Kong, and human rights violations,” as cited in Bloomberg. “The United States rejects efforts by (Chinese) officials to harass, intimidate, surveil, and abduct members of ethnic and religious minority groups, including those who seek safety abroad, and U.S. citizens, who speak out on behalf of these vulnerable populations,” Blinken said. “We are committed to defending human rights around the world and will continue to use all diplomatic and economic measures to promote accountability.”

It’s unclear as yet which and how many Chinese state officials will be impacted by the new visa restriction measures, which will effectively ban them from travel into the United States, and it’s an expansion of prior Trump restrictions. Earlier, the White House issued a statement saying – like UK prime minister Boris Johnson’s words over the weekend – that Beijing must condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and stop downplaying it.

“western representative democracy” collapsed under the weight of COVID-19 and was replaced with unilateral authoritarian emergency power.”

Is Ukraine the Representative Autocracy Washington Hopes To Achieve Here? (CTH)

Tucker Carlson used his monologue tonight to note something we have discussed at length here. Western government leaders continue to make statements about “representative democracy” in comparison to “autocratic non-western government”, yet they make these public statements while personifying autocracy itself. An example was Joe Biden making statements to the media during a 9-11 commemoration visit to Shanksville Pennsylvania. In his remarks, Joe Biden decried Chinese Chairman Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladmir Putin as autocrats, yet Biden had just announced forced mandatory medical procedures for all U.S. workers a mere 36 hours before. It is a fact that throughout the last two years – the leaders of Europe, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the United States have used declarations of emergency to position themselves with massive power. This is not debatable.

As a consequence, the prior definition of “western representative democracy” collapsed under the weight of COVID-19 and was replaced with unilateral authoritarian emergency power. When you look around, every single government in the west is still trying to extend those COVID powers by extending the emergency declarations that provide them. Again, none of this is up for debate; it is empirically true. Tucker asks a really good question. Is the autocratic system of government that existed in Ukraine before the Russian invasion – which is (not coincidentally) identical in many ways to the COVID-19 inspired system of government created by Western leaders – actually, the real motive for those western leaders to unite in their support and current propaganda campaign on behalf of Ukraine? I think he might be onto something. WATCH:

Is western autocracy the real objective, and is modern fascism (i.e. corporatism) the technique to get there? There is a massive synergy visible if you think about the WEF selecting leaders in this process. The problem for western leaders, who want to be dictators, has always been the voice of the people. Replace traditional democracy by merging modern corporatism with a new version of western autocracy, and we end up with a never-ending system of oppressive government just like we have been dealing with for the past two years throughout the pandemic.

“The U.S. has no one capable of sailing its ship of state, no one in a position of influence worthy of the title “diplomat.”

American Imperial Infantilism (Lawrence)

When those purporting to serve as America’s statesmen and stateswomen think calling other world leaders names is properly part of the diplomatic repertoire — a prominent part, I’ll add — we are left with only one conclusion: The U.S. has no one capable of sailing its ship of state, no one in a position of influence worthy of the title “diplomat.” To qualify it, I’m certain there are plenty of mid-level people trained in the foreign service now in mid-level positions at the State Department. But they do not count, by and large, because what passes for diplomacy in Washington is driven not by skill, experience or subtle intelligence but by fidelity to American ideology and a nose for what plays in Peoria. Over the weekend I found myself thinking about FDR. I thought about Roosevelt in that famous photograph with Churchill and Stalin at the Yalta Conference.

There they are in their overcoats against the cold of February 1945 (FDR in a dashing cape). Then I thought about Biden and his nonsense name-calling and his refusal to even consider an encounter with Putin at this crucial moment. I had choice between laughing or the other emotion. It’s simply not easy to find truly good diplomats in the post–1945 annals of the American Foreign Service. I am talking about people who understand that one of the primary responsibilities of a diplomat is to understand how those on the other side of the table think and see things, what the other side wants and why. Here’s why they don’t exist anymore: Simply stated, power obviates the need for serious statecraft. The powerful nation has no need of diplomacy.

A figure such as George Kennan was the exception proving the rule, and he was an exception because he saw the need to understand how the world looked to the Soviet Union. Henry Kissinger proved the rule: For all his claim to diplomatic skill, Hank K. was a wielder of American power with a calculating mind, nothing more. The rest follows naturally: Antony Blinken is not a serious diplomat. Samantha Power is not a serious diplomat. As a diplomat (and various other things), Hillary “He’s Hitler” Clinton is a walking calamity. Biden, who’s spent his career selling snake oil off the back of a buckwagon, is not a statesman of any kind, serious or otherwise. We should consider when, precisely, calling other leaders names became an accepted feature of American “statecraft” (and I insist on the quotation marks.) When, why, and what are the consequences of this undignified practice?

The Takeover Of America’s Legal System (Sibarium)

As of last month, the American Bar Association is requiring all accredited law schools to “provide education to law students on bias, cross-cultural competency, and racism,” both at the start of law school and “at least once again before graduation.” That’s in addition to a mandatory legal ethics class, which must now instruct students that they have a duty as lawyers to “eliminate racism.” (The American Bar Association, which accredits almost every law school in the United States, voted 348 to 17 to adopt the new standard.) Trial verdicts that do not jibe with the new politics are seen as signs of an inextricable hate—and an illegitimate legal order. At the Santa Clara University School of Law, administrators emailed students that the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse—the 17-year-old who killed two men and wounded another during a riot, in Kenosha, Wisconsin—was “further evidence of the persistent racial injustice and systemic racism within our criminal justice system.”

At UC Irvine, the university’s chief diversity officer emailed students that the acquittal “conveys a chilling message: Neither Black lives nor those of their allies’ matter.” (He later apologized for having “appeared to call into question a lawful trial verdict.”) Professors say it is harder to lecture about cases in which accused rapists are acquitted, or a police officer is found not guilty of abusing his authority. One criminal law professor at a top law school told me he’s even stopped teaching theories of punishment because of how negatively students react to retributivism—the view that punishment is justified because criminals deserve to suffer. “I got into this job because I liked to play devil’s advocate,” said the tenured professor, who identifies as a liberal. “I can’t do that anymore. I have a family.

Other law professors—several of whom asked me not to identify their institution, their area of expertise, or even their state of residence—were similarly terrified. Nadine Strossen, the first woman to head the American Civil Liberties Union and a professor at New York Law School, told me: “I massively self-censor. I assume that every single thing that is said, every facial gesture, is going to be recorded and potentially disseminated to the entire world. I feel as if I am operating in a panopticon.” This has all come as a shock to many law professors, who had long assumed that law schools wouldn’t cave to the new orthodoxy.

Ukraine Refugees Uninterested In Vaccination, Wary Of The Vaccinators (Eugyp)

Bayerischer Rundfunk (Bavarian Public Radio) notices that Ukrainian refugees are overwhelmingly unvaccinated: “Only about a third of Ukrainians have been vaccinated against Corona, in part with vaccines that are unapproved in the EU. The low vaccination rate could cause problems in the refugee centres. The city of Nürnberg, for example, has set up three gymnasiums to accommodate 600 people, where many must share a small space. …Anyone who wants to can receive a vaccination a few hundred metres away … free of charge for Ukrainian refugees.“Unfortunately, we’re finding that the refugees aren’t exactly snatching the vaccines out of our hands,” says Nürnberg Mayor Marcus König.“Many new arrivals are very worried about ‘forced vaccinations’,” adds Thomas Jung, Mayor of Fürth. He says you have to approach the topic with sensitivity. …”

It’s been months of overt coercion to accept vaccination from politicians and the press here in the Federal Republic of Germany. Months of social exclusion and jeopardised careers and all the rest of it. Nobody has given the slightest thought to “sensitivity.” Why are they now at pains to accommodate the feelings of Ukrainians? Jung explains that city officials pressed a Ukrainian doctor into service, to begin delicately preaching the Gospel of Vaccination to refugees last Friday. It’s rare, because the West is so totalising, but every now and then you get an idea of what it must be like to look into this funhouse from the outside. You flee a war-zone and end up sleeping on the floor of some repurposed gym, while the locals scheme madly about how to inject you with their latest mRNA tech.

Dear Ukrainians: You’re entirely right to be terrified of forced vaccination. We are too.

More VAERS-Reported Vaccine Deaths In Our Military Than COVID Deaths (Blaze)

Both political parties are salivating to draw our military into the Russia-Ukraine war, but neither of them seems to care about what our own leaders have done to these soldiers. It is now abundantly clear from numerous data points that the shots have caused unimaginable injury among the general population. Military doctors have come forward to show the enormity of this damage in the military, yet the military has chosen to cover it up and tamper with their own health surveillance data in order to conceal the magnitude of the injury. Meanwhile, new data presented in a Florida federal court on behalf of a Navy SEAL demonstrates that, at a minimum, more people died from the shot than from COVID.

On March 10, attorney Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel presented data in court showing 127 VAERS-reported COVID vaccine-related deaths in the military in 2021. That is more than the 93 reported COVID deaths in the military since the beginning of the pandemic. And keep in mind, COVID deaths tend to be overestimated, while VAERS-reported deaths, especially in the military, are underreported. Even CDC researchers recently conceded that “the actual rates of myocarditis per million doses of vaccine are likely higher than estimated” by VAERS reports. The military VAERS data was initially discovered by Dr. Jessica Rose, a biologist and mathematician who has likely published more information on VAERS than anyone in the world. VAERS has a box to check for those in the military to select upon submission, and she counted 127 reported deaths stemming from service members in 2021.

This safety signal from the universal reporting system is the most significant evidence to date that the DMED (Defense Medical Epidemiology Data) specifically monitoring the military, as originally presented by the whistleblowers, was correct when it showed a massive surge in injuries ranging from neurological and cardio to cancers and immune disorders. According to the military, though, the 2016-2020 baseline used by the whistleblowers was plagued by a glitch just at the time these military doctors pulled the information (not before and not after!) and the numbers for those years were always as high as those in 2021. The problem is that the VAERS data, by definition, indicate that 2021 had to have experienced a surge in injuries. It’s just a question of how much. Here is the VAERS data for vaccine-related hospitalizations in 2021 compared to previous years.

He Faces 20 Years For Jan 6. His Lawyers Say He Just Went To Protest. (DW)

Knowlton, now 41, has recruited a team of high-profile attorneys who hope the court examines the evidence without judging him by the actions of other defendants. They view his case as having major First Amendment implications. “He went to Washington to exercise his First Amendment right to petition the government for what he believed was a redress of grievances,” Alan Dershowitz, an attorney for Knowlton, told The Daily Wire in an interview. “And he’s been lumped together with people who caused damage or who intended to obstruct. He wasn’t intending to do that. He just intended to protest.” A few minutes before Knowlton entered the Capitol, police held the door for a group of protesters inside who exited through the Upper West Terrace. Soon after, another protestor held the exterior door open and waved for others to flood in.

The defendant’s lawyers say Knowlton heard a message echo through the crowd that officers were allowing people inside. Surveillance footage shot inside the Capitol after Knowlton entered corroborates that officers were shaking hands with protestors — furthering an argument held by some January 6 defense attorneys that police did not take necessary steps to protect the building. At 2:51 p.m., Knowlton and a group walked peacefully with an “officer escort” and left two minutes later, according to a memo based on discovery. Hundreds of protestors trekked through the Upper West Terrace doors, as officers turned their backs, until 2:47 p.m. The U.S. Capitol Police declined to comment. Knowlton’s attorneys cite judicial precedent as a key factor in showing his innocence. He was nonviolent and not “stopped or told by any officer” that his conduct was “unlawful or prohibited in any way,” they say.

But arguably the most significant prosecution flaw, the lawyers say, is the DOJ’s decision to prosecute him for obstructing a congressional “proceeding.” Ronald Sullivan, who directs Harvard Law School’s Criminal Justice Institute and is an attorney for Knowlton, called it “a unique” and “unprecedented use of the statute.” Section 1512, which carries a hefty sentence and could have the effect of “strongly encouraging defendants to accept plea bargains,” has never before been applied to protests “of this sort, or any sort,” Sullivan said in an interview. David Warrington, a constitutional lawyer who is a partner at Dhillon Law Group, told The Daily Wire that the statute relates to things like the destruction or alteration of evidence and witness tampering — not an electoral certification.

Warrington said its usage by the DOJ against defendants who trespassed, vandalized, or committed violence is “unprecedented” and an “expansion” of its scope. Lawyers who The Daily Wire interviewed questioned whether the certification of an election even constitutes an “official proceeding.”

Donald Trump’s PAC Has More Cash Than Republicans, Democrats Combined (NW)

Former President Donald Trump’s “Save America” political action committee has more cash on hand than the Republican National Committee (RNC) and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) combined, according to financial data from the Federal Election Commission (FEC). Kenneth Vogel, a journalist with The New York Times, noted the disparity between Trump’s PAC and the committees’ funds in a tweet on Monday. Vogel said that FEC records show Save America reported $110.4 million in cash on hand as of February 28, compared to the DNC’s $52.9 million and the RNC’s $24.5 million. Trump has suggested multiple times since President Joe Biden took office in January 2021 that he might mount another run at the White House in 2024, though he has not yet officially announced a campaign.

However, he’s held multiple “Save America” rallies and proven to be the most prodigious fundraiser within the GOP. Though he legally cannot use the PAC funds directly for a comeback race, he’s allowed to use the money toward such political expenses as television ads and investing in his own businesses. On Sunday, Bloomberg reported that although Trump’s war chest has grown, he has not yet donated any of the money from it in 2022 to the dozens of candidates he’s endorsed in upcoming elections. “Trump has endorsed GOP candidates at the federal, state and local level, focusing on those who support his baseless claims the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him or are challenging Republican incumbents who opposed him,” Bloomberg’s Bill Allison wrote. “He’s championed more than 130 candidates since leaving the White House, more than half of whom are running for federal office.”

Allison also noted that while Save America has given $350,500 to candidates since July, 2021, it has not reported making a single donation in 2022. In a separate story in February, Allison wrote in Bloomberg that Save America spent $838,000 “on event staging and related expenses in January.”

Barr: Biden ‘Lied To The American People’ About His Son Hunter’s Emails (NYP)

Former US Attorney General Bill Barr on Monday accused President Biden of having “lied to the American people” during a presidential debate when he called the Post’s exposure of his son Hunter Biden’s emails “a Russian plant.” During an appearance on Fox News, Barr said, “I was very disturbed during the debate when candidate Biden lied to the American people about the laptop.” “He’s squarely confronted with the laptop, and he suggested that it was Russian disinformation and pointed to the letter written by some intelligence people that was baseless — which he knew was a lie,” Barr said. “And I was shocked by that.”

The comments from Barr — who recently authored a tell-all memoir, “One Damn Thing After Another,” that’s critical of former President Donald Trump — came after the New York Times last week said emails it obtained had been authenticated by sources familiar with them and with the federal probe into Hunter Biden’s taxes. The Times and other media outlets previously denigrated The Post’s exclusive reporting on the emails, saying the material hadn’t been independently verified. During the Oct. 22, 2020, debate, Trump suggested the emails showed Biden was “a corrupt politician” and called his scandal-scarred son’s computer “the laptop from hell.”

Biden responded that “there are 50 former national intelligence folks who said that what this, he’s accusing me of, is a Russian plant.” “They have said that this has all the characteristics — four, five former heads of the CIA, both parties — say what he’s saying is a bunch of garbage.” Last week, only five of 51 former officials — including former National Security Director Jim Clapper — told The Post they still stood by an Oct. 19, 2020, public statement that said the release of the emails had “all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.” Five others declined to comment, while 39 signers didn’t respond and two couldn’t be contacted.

White House Ignores Its Hunter Problem (Devine)

It is hardly vindication of The Post’s flawless reporting on the Hunter Biden laptop that 17 months late, the New York Times has admitted the laptop is real. It is an indictment of the Times and a betrayal of their readers who were kept in the dark about the true nature of Joe Biden before the 2020 election. But now that we are all on the same page, there are some serious questions the administration needs to answer, which go to America’s national security at a time of international peril. President Biden’s press secretary, Jen Psaki, refused to answer The Post’s White House reporter, Steven Nelson, when he had the rare opportunity to ask her two of those questions last week. Psaki’s excuse was that Hunter Biden “doesn’t work in the government.” But she wasn’t being asked about Hunter. She was being asked about her boss, the president.

“How is President Biden navigating conflicts of interest when it comes to sanctioning people who have done business with his family?” asked Nelson. “What would be his conflicts of interest?” Psaki coolly replied. Well, just for starters, Russian oligarch Yelena Baturina, who paid $3.5 million into a bank account associated with Hunter and his business partner Devon Archer, was not sanctioned along with other oligarchs allied with President Vladimir Putin this month. Why not? Was it an oversight? A favor? It’s a serious question that deserves a serious answer. Baturina wired $3.5 million on Feb. 14, 2014, to Rosemont Seneca Thornton, a consortium formed between Rosemont Seneca — the firm co-founded by Hunter, Archer and Chris Heinz — and the Thornton Group.

Baturina’s wires were flagged in “suspicious activity reports” provided by the Treasury Department to a Senate Republican inquiry by the Finance and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committees. Hunter’s lawyer has denied Hunter profited from the transaction, telling CNN: “The claim that he was paid $3.5 million is false.” So who received the $3.5 million and did they pay tax on it? Seven weeks after Baturina’s wire transfer, Hunter and Archer flew to Lake Como, Italy, and had a meeting with her at Villa d’Este, a favorite haunt of Russian oligarchs. A year later, in April 2015, Baturina and her husband, the former corrupt mayor of Moscow and political ally of Putin, Yury Luzhkov, would appear on a guest list Hunter prepared for a dinner at Washington’s Cafe Milano where his father, then VP, would meet with his son’s overseas business partners from Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan.

After The Post published details of that dinner last year, the White House quietly admitted to a Washington Post fact-checker that Biden did attend the dinner, but only briefly. That’s a pretty important admission, because during the election campaign, Biden repeatedly denied meeting Hunter’s overseas business partners. Specifically, he denied meeting Hunter’s Ukrainian paymaster, Vadym Pozharskyi, who also was invited to the dinner. Pozharskyi was an executive of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, owned by Russia-aligned oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky, who was paying Hunter $83,333 a month. “Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together,” Pozharskyi wrote in an email to Hunter on April 17, 2015, two days after the dinner.

That email, found on Hunter’s abandoned laptop, was the basis of the bombshell story The Post published three weeks before the 2020 election. It was that email that 51 former intelligence officials declared without evidence, in a partisan letter issued five days after The Post’s story, had all the “hallmarks” of Russian disinformation. Biden used that letter from the Dirty 51 to get off the hook in an election-eve debate against President Donald Trump. He called The Post’s reporting a “bunch of garbage” and the laptop a “Russian plant.”

    “Blinken called on China to “end its ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang, repressive policies in Tibet, crackdown on fundamental freedoms in Hong Kong, and human rights violations,” as cited in Bloomberg.”

    Story should read:

    “US leaders, unable to gin up enough interest in Americans over the Ukraine situation, quickly pivoted to Chinese genocide to increase distraction from the country’s domestic issues. In a press conference, Jen Psaki appeared to be suffering whiplash as a result of the 180 degree turn, but promised to circle back to the topic once she has the correct canned responses memorized.”

    This stuff would be funny if it weren’t so sickening. Seems like only yesterday we were celebrating China during the Olympic games. Oh, wait …

    Destabilizing the social, political and economic structure of 190 sovereign countries cannot constitute a “solution” to combating the virus. But that was the imposed “solution” which was implemented in several stages from the very outset of the corona crisis in January 2020. It’s the destruction of people’s lives. It is the destabilization of civil society.

    Fake science was supportive of this devastating agenda. The lies were sustained by a massive media disinformation campaign. 24/7, Incessant and Repetitive “Covid alerts” in the course of the last two years.

    The historic March 11, 2020 lockdown triggered economic and social chaos Worldwide. It was an act of “economic warfare”: a war against humanity.


    This week the long-awaited Online Safety Bill was published, which aims to make the UK the ‘safest place to be online in the world’ – in other words, the country with the most strictly regulated and censored internet of any liberal democracy. This mammoth piece of legislation was five years in the making, and those five years show. The bill is vast in scope, and terrifying in its implications for free speech.

    Most significant is the ‘duty of care’ the bill imposes on social-media firms. Tech platforms will be legally required to prevent users from seeing both illegal content and ‘legal but harmful content’.


    Because of the degradation of the immune system (AIDS) after taking these shots, the mortality rate has jumped for those who are told they have COIVD. It’s even worse for the triple vaccinated population in terms of their risk of death. The official figures show that they are on average 3.7 times more likely to be infected with Covid-19 but 5.1 times more likely to die of Covid-19 than the unvaccinated population.

    The following chart shows the total number of Covid-19 cases per week by vaccination status across Canada between 31st Jan 22 and 27th Feb 22 –

    Is it REALLY so hard to just make do with less? Conserve and produce local? No, it makes more sense and is more efficient. But then you wouldn’t have financial middle men collecting tolls worldwide for doing nothing. Hugh Smith comments on this and their outsized gains, gradually increasing over many years.

    It is a shame Malone has to move on from the local question he is qualified for in Covid, to the large question of government, intent, and totalitarianism, but here we are. Without adding those factors, we are blind. And he is qualified for them. He is a citizen, as we all are.

    “Kremlin Rejects Proposed Zelensky-Putin Meeting (ZH)”

    Lavrov was clear on Putin’s position: Ukraine calls all kinds of meeting with all kinds of new ideas, new formats, to endlessly delay and waste everybody’s valuable time and talent. Act to prove consent to at least the Minsk accord and they’ll probably meet with you shortly. Until then, I agree: we keep the low-level people talking with open channels, and the big guys can go get real work done. Instead, Ze says “Fight to the last Ukrainian” in Maripol.

    All it takes is the most cursory read of the top people to know that. The West is incapable of it.

    The United States rejects efforts by (Chinese) officials to harass, intimidate, surveil, and abduct members of ethnic and religious minority groups,”

    …While harassing and oppressing religious minorities at home (Christians and Jews). And keeping some groups in solitary for a year pending trial. And hosts active war criminals in the country, applauding them on The View, such as Bush, Cheney, Albright, and more.

    If they have such strong views, boycott Chinese goods and remove their Most Favored Nation status. Oh wait: that would be Trump’s platform, again.

    ““western representative democracy” collapsed under the weight of COVID-19 and was replaced with unilateral authoritarian emergency power.”

    It didn’t collapse, It was murdered. Over all our objections. And the only alternative we had to that was open rebellion and civil war which the people aren’t taking yet.

    Of course “Democracy” we must pay EXTRA donations above all our taxes of a billion dollar there to are for a nation that outlaws all opposition parties, grabs and nationalizes the media, and starts a citizen-crushing war. While installing nationwide panopticon of IT tracking with virus ID cards, etc. So yes, exactly what we want here. Ukr is ourbeta test of tolerance and love.

    “The U.S. has no one capable of sailing its ship of state, no one in a position of influence”

    This is what they said of the failing Soviet Union. No idea who was in charge or what they were doing, so there was an industry in “Kremlinology”, figuring what was happening by who visited and what ties they were wearing. So as Orlov says, we’re “Closing the Collapse Gap” in mirroring the Soviet failure. Of State Socialism.

    “The powerful nation has no need of diplomacy.”

    In a way, yes. But we never used to do this. They’re all useless inbreds. Remember only a few years ago, Baker and the old guard put out a warning to the young kids that they were failing and misbehaving? That it wouldn’t work and their 100 year plan would be ruined? And were summarily ignored. Also there are plenty of diplomats and others with good ideas hanging around. They’re just ignored and expelled.

    Reminds me of today’s chilling article on law schools, “The Takeover Of America’s Legal System (Sibarium)” who now graduate people who don’t believe in law, equality, or right to legal defense. If a person is a “bad man” then we don’t go represent them and find out. We telepathically know it, as a statement of mass faith, with no need to find out. It’s the same here: we don’t talk, we tell you. This is the universal approach of all PMCs. Administrators. Apparatchiks. Submit or Die. We don’t have peace talks, because there’s nothing to negotiate. Submit or Die. Or since you rebelled, just: Die.

    A Vietnam pilot was on radio yesterday, saying from then, if you go into war, you should be able to describe what winning is. So he asked to his fellow men back then, what’s “winning” in Vietnam, what does it look like? When do we go home? A: “I don’t know.” And so it turned out there although the point was making money and cracking the U.S. currency. We left still not knowing and Vietnam is capitalist today. No Dominoes.

    So what is “Winning” in Ukraine and Russia? When do we know we’ve done it? When do we go home? See last week’s 30-point plan of complete, eternal annihilation of Russia, nationally, militarily, culturally, personally. I’m sure they’ll agree to this. Why not? See how great the Western system is to our own poor, workers, and minorities?

    “three gymnasiums to accommodate 600 people,” With numbers like this, there must be a serious war indeed. How will they cope?

    And why would they care, I ask for the 500th time, if Germans are vaccinated, they’re all safe. If the refugees don’t want to, are you going to put them in solitary, tie them and their kids down and make them? A: Yes!!!!!!!!!!!! They need to be saved from themselves!!! Mommy knows best.

    Or as from Fascism yesterday, its essence is Groupthink. That we’re all one people with the UniIdea™ of the UniParty™. But these sad refugees spurn our offer to be part of the High School Girls Clique. This cannot be tolerated. Hell hath no fury as a Jr. High School girl scorned.

    However, they are “allowed” to be apprehensive. If you’re black, for instance, or whatever, then the rules are different and it’s okay. If you’re White, but abused by the system, tested on, your whole county erased with that open coal mine, you’re not allowed. “Because I said so.” –Mommy. Btw, “Learn to Code.”

    More VAERS-Reported Vaccine Deaths In Our Military Than COVID Deaths (Blaze)”

    Discuss? Or do we want to comment on drugs that are entirely safe with near-zero recorded deaths?

    “As another guy killed himself after he was told ‘he would not receive a fair trial in this town’.”

    He was murdered. No one was arrested. What part of “Speedy Trial”, with “access to prosecutorial evidence”, and lacking “Cruel and unusual punishment” i.e. torture, do they not understand? Those are all VERY SERIOUS crimes. Felonies, of Civil Rights level. That is, some of the most serious violations possible. Ones that end the very contract between people and state. As said, the people, being incredibly tolerant, are not up to starting an open Civil War over it. Yet.

    “By 2024, the US may be a complete disaster. You want to inherit that?”

    Yes, it’s very easy to solve. Stop being stupid and trying to kill and oppress everyone. Let’s see, last time with no power, nobody following orders of any kind, best minority employment in decades, low gas prices, energy independent, reviving manufacturing, no wars.

    “Barr: Biden ‘Lied To The American People’ About His Son Hunter’s Emails (NYP)”

    …And I did nothing about the hundreds or thousands of felonies involved. Plus a bunch of other known crimes! And still not doing them today. Or ever!

    Hey would that be cause for asking Ukraine to maybe look into it?

    We’ve officially crossed over from Clown World into Bizarro Horror World…

    Where at least 1/3 of the population is stark raving mad, ready to support whatever the next “thing” is floated by “liberal” Western politicians & media, including starting a nuclear WWIII 😐

    This includes supporting/ignoring any hint of blatant illegality committed by “leaders” or “spokespeople”…

    Suicidal depression is one of the symptoms of a person suffering a psychic break with reality, which explains when combined with IQ impairment why sooo many lined up for death jabs.

    The mass programming/propaganda is literally pushing people over the mental cliff, there is no hope of returning to normal human society, they’re broadcasting the torching of the social contract 24/7/365…

    Why else would “they” allow men to cheat with performance enhancing testicles against young women that should be hoping to bear children into happy, safe communities & families?

    Sorry, I view same sex marriages something beyond the Infinite’s intent, another twist on the selfish spiritual malady rollercoaster…

    People in positions influencing others will either spread their love, or their hatred ~ They must chose whether to Serve in Heaven, or Reign in Hell.

    Sometimes the “THING” agents are so far lost in EGO & Pride they’re beyond choosing; They have burnt the bridges & boats, it’s too late for them…

    Others under their influence are so caught in idol worship, the influencers program actual their thought patterns.

    One thing is clear, very few are seeking The Road Less Traveled, spiritual teaching & morals has no appeal for the sound byte generation(s)…

    In a society of strangers with almost no rules, those who pander to the largest common denominator, no matter how venal, lead the tribe. Reality be damned!


    “It depends on a cheap, universal, globalized commerce. What was it, they move 22,000 tonnes of ore to make one electric car? Yeah, that sounds sustainable.” And all done primarily with diesel.


    Anyone know what’s going on with MOEX. I find it hard to believe that it isn’t trading period. The east is still trading with Russia and yet I can’t find any info on the markets in Russia. I personally have no investments in any markets. I do like to follow them as the reality is what happens on the global market front will eventually show up on the ground around me.

    Autocracies cannot allow evolutionary churn to operate freely enough to enable their regime to adapt to changes. By throttling evolutionary churn–dissent, variety, experiments across the board in all fields–autocrats doom their regime to failure and collapse. The irony is their tight grip on power is their undoing.

    Autocrats have a second fatal flaw: they want agreement and confirmation, not dissent. Once the autocrat decides that this set of policies will support the regime’s control, then dissent is unwelcome.

    This desire for compliance and consensus dooms the autocracy to failure and collapse because dissent is the essence of evolutionary churn and adaptation. Surround yourself with sycophants and toadies, crush dissenting views, and you’ve sealed the fate of your autocracy:


    A note on the Russian operation in Ukraine

    Russia is not only trying to minimize civilians causalities and trying to keep the civilian infrastructure functioning, they are doing this with a minimum sized force compared to what the Empire of Lies used in say Iraq, where it’s invading force used overwhelming force size, killed half a million civilians, and utterly destroy the civilian infrastructure, in parts, even to this day.

    The bulk of Russian military forces are not even committed to this action in Ukraine, they are poised and ready along their own ‘contact line’ with NATO from north to south in case the Empire of Lies wants to try a sneak attack on Russia.

    In summary, the Russians are accomplishing their special operation in Ukraine with numerical inferiority to the Ukrainian army size.

    This was also a message that probably fell on the deaf ears of the NATO-tards®

    In schoolyard language it translates as:

    “I did what I said I was going to do to you, and I whipped you with a small fraction of my actual capability so if you want to push your luck with my full undivided attention, give the Bear another poke punk, and we’ll see who’s left standing”


    “Barr: Biden ‘Lied To The American People’ About His Son Hunter’s Emails (NYP)”

    Former Trump AT Bill Barr is a vermin maggot.

    So why did Trump not fire him?

    A little back history on Bill ‘Judas Goat’ Barr:

    Barr’s father Donald was a recruiter for intelligence agencies and deep state operatives. During his time at the prestigious Dalton Prep School in NYC, Donald Barr allegedly hired Jeffrey Epstein as a math teacher even though Epstein was a 21-year-old college dropout.

    Donald Barr was as fascinated with sexual slavery as Epstein; and, in 1973, Donald Barr published a novel about it called “Space Relations.” Here is an excerpt of a book review written by in 2008. It reveals the underlying philosophy of the sci-fi novel.

    [Barr’s] exploration of slavery is neither sensitive nor telling. Despite repeatedly and officiously informing the reader that slavery is wrong at every turn (go figure), Barr creates two openly “superior” characters as his leads. Craig and Morgan freely kill, torture, seduce and make sweeping political decisions on behalf of thousands of people – but this is acceptable, because they’re somehow imbued with “natural heroism”. Slavery and oppression are wrong, unless you’re someone as wise and talented as Craig or Morgan, in which you’re perfectly justified in forcing decisions on other people.

    Father & Son, boy, the poison apple doesn’t fall far from the rotten tree.

    Perhaps it’s no coincidence that Donald’s son William Barr was the author of the 1992 report “The Case for More Incarceration.” Yes that’s actually the title, he’s not coy.

    The incarcerated people referenced in the report were often low-level drug users and peddlers, NOT white collar serial felons from Wall St. This drove the Prison, Inc. agenda to lock up as many blacks and other ‘deplorables’ as possible, kinda like back in plantation times.

    With little attention, William Barr formally announces his proto Orwellian Pre-Crime Program

    Naturally, at the same time, gangster rap brainwashed whole young generations into a lifestyle that set them up for incarceration. This is true as it was fortuitous for someone wanting to make billions with the Prison Industrial Complex Racket.

    Barr, in a psychopathic reveal, slipped up and said in the report, “The benefits of increased incarceration would be enjoyed disproportionately by black Americans.”

    Barr is a longtime proponent of the unitary executive theory of nearly unfettered presidential authority.
    Except for Trump, his boss. He sat their with his thumb up his fat useless ass and allowed Trump to be rolled like a bowery bum.

    During his confirmation process for US. Attorney General under Trump, Barr sent an unsolicited memo to DOJ and the White House arguing that it cannot be obstruction of justice when a president does “facially-lawful” acts that involve an exercise of his constitutional authority.

    Unless it’s Trump as president, then Barr’s position was that everything Trump did was illegal.

    As a deep state Judas, he made sure the election fraud of 2020 was never actually and effectively challenged. Mission Accomplished.

    And I don’t buy the lame ass excuse that Trump didn’t know Barr’s deep state history, anyone with a lick of sense could have Googled Barr’s maggot past. Trump willfully tolerated a traitor in his cabinet and then boo-hoo about it.

    Put Bill Barr in an industrial woodchipper and mulch the White House lawn with him.

    “ZELENSKYY: THE MAN WHO TOOK ON PUTIN – PBS 9:00pm Monday, March 21”

    Couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this program pop up last night on the telly after exiting the Plex app. Talk about a full court propaganda press. With all the media hysteria you’d think more was at stake with this battle than little ol’ Ukraine on the other side of the globe? And people still tell me they watch PBS and the BBC in order to get a more balanced view of world events. I wonder if Amazon has sold out of Ukrainian flags yet? I need another one for my car.

    “Covid is just a skirmish.. we have a much bigger problem in my opinion and it has to do with the rise of totalitarianism”

    This is why I love this guy, Dr. Robert Malone. He’s already hot on the trail of the WEF’s global plans and talking about it publicly, putting things in perspective for the average Joe. That’s the only way one can make sense of the global Covid response without pulling one’s hair out and screaming about the insanity. The answers which give meaning can be found one level up from Covid in the WEF. Direct your artillery there for maximum effectiveness, especially now that Covid has been fully exposed as a giant scam.

    What do you call someone who had a comfortable life on a beautiful horse farm, surrounded by family and friends, and then leaves it all behind to barnstorm the planet with a call to arms? Working long days, running from one event to the next, maybe getting 4 hours sleep per night in strange hotels, receiving death threats, enduring attacks, losing long-time associates and friends? Such men are rare, we call them heroes. Dr. Malone would deny it, of course, saying that he was just doing what was right.

    “The U.S. has no one capable of sailing its ship of state, no one in a position of influence worthy of the title “diplomat.”

    When you are the sole superpower there is no need for diplomacy, only threats of force and the use of force. When you have a giant military hammer whose bases span the globe, every problem the State Dept. sees looks like a nail. And when you control the global banking system the solution to every “diplomatic” problem is a check or a sanction, a bribe or a stick. Diplomacy is for the weak don’t ya know.

    Iryna Vereshchuk said shelling by Russian forces was also preventing rescue workers from accessing the site of a bombed theatre in Mariupol where city officials say hundreds were believed to be sheltering underground when it was hit by an air raid last week.

    Russia has denied bombing the theatre or attacking civilians.

    Video: Rogan Exposes How West Has Done A Complete 180 On ‘Corrupt’ Ukraine

    “They were talking about the massive corruption of Ukraine, and how horrible it was over there. And now, all of a sudden, they’re looking at it like they’re heroes.”

    See! This is what happens when there is no diplomacy and you go around kicking everyone who makes you unhappy in the nuts. They picked a fight with Joe Rogan when he gave airtime to Dr’s McCullough and Malone, and now he’s pissed off. So now his 10 million followers are getting the low-down on Ukraine, when they could’ve been listening to Rogan interview some author about his new book instead.

    They never learn. With each new blow the state creates more enemies.


    Everyone here keeps circling around to a same logical conclusions without focusing on the keystone to pretty much all areas of dysfunction be they political, medical, financial, etc…

    None of the problems gets solved without a prosecutor and a judge ruling to make a case out of the problem.

    Covid lies and deception = a prosecutor could start going after Fauci et al, there’s a MOUNTAIN of evidence out there, i.e. Reiner Fuellmich et al

    But all the prosecutors seem bought off, scared off or stupid incompetent dipshits

    Maybe that’s why George Soros, dried up old Supreme Manwhore Commander, decided to ‘sponsor’ candidates for prosecutors nation wide.

    You know ones that don’t think BLM riots were, well, riots.

    Military Industrial Complex Racket boondoogles, no cases moves against it unless a prosecutor says so.

    Financial Ponzi schemes on Wall St, no cases moves against it unless a prosecutor says so.

    Covid mass murder with fraudulent PCR tests, useless masks, lockdowns, toxic pseudo ‘vaccines’, no cases moves against it unless a prosecutor says so.

    Mortgage fraud, no cases moves against it unless a prosecutor says so.

    Hey, it’s a pattern!

    And humanity is sooo goood at pattern recognition!

    10,000 years of watching psychopaths who walk among us pull the same extortion rackets over an over an over an over again.

    Hey, not seeing patterns in front of you, that too is a pattern!

    A pattern of an animal species with a built in sadomasochistic addiction to pain and suffering. Don’t…stop….don’t…stop…don’t stop!

    Hey, maybe we’re better now because we all have ‘smart phones’ and it will only take humans another 5,000 years to get their shit together. Only 50 more centuries of insanity and we’ll claim Nirvana!

    Hurrah for people!

    Okay, so I just read the hit-piece on referred to in this video. That Gonzalo Lira is a social-maladjust and grandstander who doesn’t know quite as much about all and sundry as he likes to imagine he does, squares with my initial impression of him. I still find his on-the-ground insights about the war in Ukraine valuable, though it’s true his perspective may be just a tad one-sided, as this would be consistent with his excessively one-sided views on gender and society. But his take is still a lot more thoughtful and nuanced than the shrieking propaganda that passes for news and information on mainstream websites.


    Talking of suicide, it is now clear that Australia has decided to top itself.

    Last Tuesday, the Federal Court overturned the ruling from last year that the Federal Environment Minister has a duty of care to protect young people from the effects of climate change when making decisions. Last year’s ruling was a world first, setting a precedent for cases all over the world, and it was also finally some common sense.

    In other words, the future is of no consequence. Whatever we lust after now, we do, and hang the consequences.

    This is madness. The darkness is closing in. May God have mercy on us all, because we sure won’t.

    Mr. House

    “one-sided views on gender and society.”

    Isn’t that the case with regards to everything we argue about these days? One side stopped pushing acceptance and has been on the warpath for some time. Many of us grew up in the 80’s and 90’s were taught acceptance and understanding. But that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore with regards to anything. TINA seems to be the what both sides are pushing these days. “leftists” are the new christian right, boycotting things they hate and trying to get in canceled. Change my mind?


    Monday was the first post mask mandate day for the province of Ontario. I spent the day at work – in a grocery store – and can report that 90% of customers continued wearing their mask. Just when I thought nothing more could surprise me.

    Yes I know the argument continues to be: “they’re frightened.” After two years?

    It was put best here: we are the Empire of Children. You can frighten 2 year olds once and they’ll remain scared long after the initial event. Plus it may take an enormous amount of coaxing to help them get over that fear. Who’s around to coax when everyone is embracing the same fear? Some will be traumatized for life. Now imagine grown adults with the mentality of 2 year olds. Actually I don’t need to imagine anything. When I return to work today I’ll have a front row seat for this three ring circus.

    I used to hear lots about Dying With Dignity. Looking at all the elderly people and their masks, it seems no one cares about Living With Dignity. I won’t mention turning retirement homes into permanent maximum security prisons. I wonder how many people rescued their parents from these homes. Or how many pretended they had no choice but to have them serve out their sentence.

    Have we turned into a society of retards or is it simply the rapid death of an entire culture?

    There currently is not much of a difference between Liberals and the “Andy Pinky Party”. Leadership of both parties are Devos Crowd groupies.

    Mr. House

    With regards to what Gonzalo Lira is stating about journalists, haven’t we seen this to be the case in all major events for the past 20 years? This is what i don’t get, the same people have been caught lying for 20 years about all these huge events, nobody is ever punished or goes to jail (unless you were the person pointing out the lying, kinda like a whistleblower). Yet we still can’t come to trust those who say yes i see what you’re seeing, and then create a narrative with regards to it?


    ““The U.S. has no one capable of sailing its ship of state, no one in a position of influence worthy of the title “diplomat.”

    If your country is in the control of the globalists who do not believe in the importance of the nation-state, how could this be otherwise? The ship of state itself becomes secondary to the globalist objectives.

    Mr. House

    @EoinW: “Yes I know the argument continues to be: “they’re frightened.” After two years?”

    So this not unique to NY? Our mask mandate ended a few weeks ago. Lots of people are still wearing masks. Some of them while outside. Some while driving around by themselves. Masked people avoid being anywhere near someone who doesn’t wear a mask. Interestingly – I see more twenty-somethings and young parents wearing masks (children also masked) than I see seniors, who mostly haven’t seemed overly concerned since the start of this.

    I think some people are damaged at this point. Not sure there is a fix. Sad.


    Fire and Ice

    Some say the world will end in fire,
    Some say in ice.

    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.

    But if it had to perish twice,
    I think I know enough of hate

    To say that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

    Pretty much. As silly as “Coach Red Pill” may be personally, the PMC consistently fails to realize how silly they look now that they know that their position in the cat-bird seat is being challenged by the increasing number of people who are simply sick and tired of all their bullshit.

    TAE Summary

    When war is declared, truth is the first casualty.
    Arthur Ponsonby

    Ponsonby wrote Propaganda Lies of the First World War which provides a stunning comparison to our current situation:
    A few excerpts in which the parallels are obvious:

    War being established as a recognized institution to be resorted to when Governments quarrel, the people are more or less prepared. They quite willingly delude themselves in order to justify their own actions. They are anxious to find an excuse for displaying their patriotism, or they are disposed to seize the opportunity for the excitement and new life of adventure which war opens out to them. So there is a sort of national wink, everyone goes forward, and the individual, in his turn, takes up lying as a patriotic duty. In the low standard of morality which prevails in war-time, such a practice appears almost innocent.

    Our prompt entry into the European War in 1914 was necessitated by our commitment to France. This commitment was not known to the people; it was not known to Parliament ; it was not even known to all the members of the Cabinet. More than this, its existence was denied. How binding the moral engagement was soon became clear. The fact that it was not a signed treaty had nothing whatever to do with the binding nature of an understanding come to as a result of military and naval conversations conducted over a number of years. .. it was referred to as “an obligation of honour”, “A compact “, “An honourable expectation “ (and) “the closest negotiations and arrangements between the two Governments “.

    Whatever may have been the causes of the Great War, the German invasion of Belgium was certainly not one of them. It was one of the first consequences of war. Nor was it even the reason of our entry into the war. But the Government, realizing how doubtful it was whether they could rouse public enthusiasm over a secret obligation to France, was able, owing to Germany’s fatal blunder, to represent the invasion of Belgium and the infringement of the Treaty of Neutrality as the cause of our participation in it.

    The accusation against the enemy of sole responsibility for the war is common form in every nation and in every war. So far as we are concerned, the Russians (in the Crimean War), the Afghans, the Arabs, the Zulus, and the Boers, were each in their turn unprovoked aggressors, to take only some recent instances. It is a necessary falsehood based on a momentary biased opinion of one side in a dispute, and it becomes the indispensable basis of all subsequent propaganda.

    Having declared the enemy the sole culprit and originator of the war, the next step is to personify the enemy. As a nation consists of millions of people and the absurd analogy of an individual criminal and a nation may become apparent even to moderately intelligent people, it is necessary to detach an individual on whom may be concentrated all the vials of the wrath of an innocent people who are only defending themselves from “unprovoked aggression.” The sovereign is the obvious person to choose. … A Punch cartoon in 1818 depicted the Kaiser as Cain. Under it was put: “More than 14,000 non-combatants have been murdered by the Kaiser’s orders.”

    Not only did the Belgian baby whose hands had been cut off by the Germans travel through the towns and villages of Great Britain, but it went through Western Europe and America, even into the Far West. No one paused to ask how long a baby would live were its hands cut off unless expert surgical aid were at hand to tie up the arteries (the answer being a very few minutes). Everyone wanted to believe the story, and many went so far as to say they had seen the baby. The lie was as universally accepted.

    To the uninitiated there is something substantially reliable in a picture obviously taken from a photograph. Nothing would seem to be more authentic than a snapshot. It does not occur to anyone to question photograph, and faked pictures therefore have special value, as they get a much better start than any mere statement, which may be criticized or denied. Only long time after, if ever, can their falsity be detected. The faking of photographs must have amounted almost to an industry during the war. All countries were concerned, but the French were the most expert. Some of the originals have been collected and reproduced.

    Gas warfare and submarine warfare offered instances of violent outbursts of indignation on the on the part of the Press, which events showed were gross hypocrisy. “We must expect the Germans to fight like savages who have acquired a knowledge of chemistry. This atrocious method of warfare . . . this diabolical contrivance. . . . The willful and systematic attempt to choke and poison our soldiers can have but one effect upon the British peoples and upon all the non-German peoples of the earth. It will deepen our indignation and our resolution, and it will fill all races with a horror of the German name”. But it turned out that the Germans had not been the first to use poison gas. M. Turpin”s discoveries in poison explosives had been advertised in the French Press before this date, and the French War Ministry’s official instructions with regard to the use of gas hand grenades had been issued in the autumn of 1914.

    There was no richer field for propaganda than the United States of America in the first years of the war. The Allied Powers and the Central Powers were both hard at work competing. The German method began by being too subtle. A wireless news agency, under German control, gave at first the best, most authentic, unbiased, and by far the cheapest war news, and thus attracted a large number of subscribers and fed the American Press. As the months passed, their news began to be ingeniously “slanted” in favour of the Central Powers. But they relied too much on argument. The cruder British methods were far more successful, and intensive work was done by the British War Mission, which comprised 500 officials with 10,000 assistants. Atrocities, Germany’s sole responsibility, the criminal Kaiser, and all the other fabrications started in Great Britain, were worked up by American liars with great effect. The Belgian baby without hands was a special favourite. There was hardly a household in which it was not discussed all over that vast continent, and even so ridiculous a scare as the concrete platforms for German guns was current in California.

    None of the problems gets solved without a prosecutor and a judge ruling to make a case out of the problem.

    Covid lies and deception = a prosecutor could start going after Fauci et al, there’s a MOUNTAIN of evidence out there, i.e. Reiner Fuellmich et al

    But all the prosecutors seem bought off, scared off or stupid incompetent dipshits


    When the Legislative & Judicial “representatives” hide behind the big ol’ Executive wolf, ALL crimes against the people are possible, indeed inevitable…

    Whatever words proceed from the Sovereigns’ orifices are Just, True, Lawful.

    As Dumya told/warned everyone, POTUS is the decider!

    In an Empire of Lies Justice mutates to JUST US!

    Merger of MONEY, WARFARE, LEGAL & now MEDICAL POWERS is now fait accompli in Western Civ ~ The ultimate coups d’CANCEL, where the huddled masses MUST submit to ALL FASCIST SOVEREIGN decrees, judgment & POWER!

    For 30+ years now I’ve been watching good men, “heroes”, chasing their tails playing the “owners” games, without one step forward, only backward, because it is the SOVEREIGN’s game!

    Go ahead, seek redress from a totally corrupt, now psychopathic shystem that was rigged against you 90 years ago…lol

    And then confront & negotiate with psychopaths, terrorists & small children, expecting “different” results…

    Just another form of delusional insanity 😐

    Until “heroes” find the “real reality” chink in the armor of the pathocracy (Natural Law is the simplest), creating a ground swell of voices agreeing on the SAME LEGAL SOLUTION, it will only get worse, worse & worser until…THE END.

    The state of nature has a law of nature to govern it, which obliges every one: and reason, which is that law, teaches all mankind, who will but consult it, that being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty, or possessions ~ Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience. ~ John Locke 1690

    If the above became the rallying cry & legal system, ALL manners of harm & evil could be seen for what it TRULY is, then dealt with appropriately…


    But how many in 2022 truly want to be held strictly responsible if they harm another in his life, health, liberty, or possessions?


    Certainly not “humans” ruled under the tyranny of toxic child EGO depravity, nor anyone that believes U$ Empire Inc. is required, indeed NEEDED for them to prosper beyond their “real reality” limited abilities.

    No, it’s more fun to harass, attack & “cancel” those you disagree with, or live in contradiction to the CULT voice in your head, when in “real reality” they have not actually not harmed you or anyone else!

    The Enemy of our Enemy is our Pyscho!

    Putin knows this, which is why he’ll never meet with that pathetic lying puppet -Z-, who is only presenting a barrage of “negotiation” games, which psyop monsters in the West have perfected as slight-of-hand weapons of “good faith”, when in truth they are a ruses of deception to confound, inflame, distract, destroy et al.

    That is the crux, the curse for 10,000 years, to solve “The Crisis” it requires not only “moral” heroes, but it involves self-sacrifice for the betterment of “all mankind”, to create a “real reality” legal standard that protects ALL as “equal and independent”…

    But now that We the Sheeple have been tricked into fantastically craving, no DEMANDING Unicorns, Rainbows & Skittles-in-every-pot, the Creative, Loving, Healing TRUTH of Natural Law is null & void, indeed outcast as a EVIL to be lambasted & ridiculed…

    Enjoy Bizarro Horror World, if you can,

    In Canberra mask mandates ended a few weeks ago. Most people don’t wear them any more. Of those that still do, the age distribution is mainly older people, but some younger people continue. Individual enterprises can still require them, e.g. doctors’ surgeries.

    Waiting now for the next variant to arrive, or for something completely new to emerge from the abyss.

    Veracious Poet

    Why are many on TAE so obsessed with those that wear masks?

    If I don an N95 while blowing out the garage, does that make me a lesser being?!?

    Isn’t that just a tad hypocritical, for those complaining about tyranny, to judge/condemn others when their thinking/actions do not harm you in any way?

    Asking for an unvexed, enclosed public environment mask wearing friend…
