“Lead it?” Where? Down the crapper!”

Biden Says US Must Lead ‘New World Order,’ Lead it Where Exactly? (Celente)

What’s the big headline making the news last week? “BIDEN: AMERICA WILL LEAD NEW WORLD ORDER.” In his speech, President Joe Biden declared, “Now is the time where things are shifting. There’s going to be a new world order out there and we’ve got to lead it.” “Lead it?” Where? Down the crapper! America’s roads are rotted, bridges collapse, archaic subways and rail systems crumble, the middle class evaporates as 61 percent of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, people can’t afford to buy homes or afford to pay rent, etc., etc. Q. And who is the “we’ve” that “got to lead it”? A. The Republican and Democratic crime syndicate… people like Joe Biden who’s been sucking off the public tit for 50 years and championed the sending of our jobs overseas and making the billionaires richer and the Bigs bigger.

Yet, as the nation descends, there is always more money to enrich the military/industrial/intelligence complex with over $1 trillion per year dumped into their coffers. Name the war that the D.C. Gang started since the end of WWII and assess the cost benefit analysis. Here are a few: • Korean War: Lost • Vietnam War: Lost • Afghanistan War: Lost • Iraq War: Lost • Syrian War: Ongoing Bloody Disaster • Libyan War: Ongoing Bloody Disaster • Yemen War: Worst Humanitarian Disaster on Earth. Therefore, with a stellar track record of monumental failures, why would anyone with a brain bigger than a pea believe or follow warped-brain politician’s war dictates… politicians who shoot off their fat mouths to start wars, but never shoot a rifle to fight the wars they start?

[..] As we reported last week, with significant percentages of the world’s corn, wheat, barley and fertilizers unable to be shipped out of Russia and Ukraine—and/or sanctioned—food and fertilizer prices have sharply spiked since the Ukraine War began: Wheat is up almost 22 percent, barley 32 percent and fertilizers jumped by 40 percent. The two nations accounted for 75 percent of the world’s sunflower seed oil, 32 percent of the barley, 30 percent wheat and 17 percent of corn exports. And over the past year, barley prices rocketed up 82 percent, wheat prices spiked 69 percent and corn prices jumped 36 percent.

“Ukraine has only compounded a catastrophe on top of a catastrophe,” said David M. Beasley, executive director of the World Food Program. “There is no precedent even close to this since World War II.” Beyond WWII, as we reported, the COVID War destroyed the lives and livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people. The imbecilic, non-scientific draconian lockdown mandates pushed hunger up 18 percent… from 720 million to 811 million people according to the UN. And now with the Ukraine War raging, the United Nations said its implications on the global food market would push up an additional 13.1 million people into hunger. “We’ll be taking food from the hungry to give to the starving,” Beasley said.

“This suggests to me, at least, that Putin is not intentionally attacking civilians..”

Pentagon Drops Truth Bombs to Stave Off War With Russia (Lauria)

Western corporate media, depending almost exclusively on Ukrainian sources, report that Russia is losing the war, with its military offensive “stalled,” and in frustration has deliberately targeted civilians and flattened cities. Biden has bought into this part of the story, calling Russian President Vladimir Putin a “war criminal.” He has also said that Russia is planning a “false flag” chemical attack to pin on Ukraine. But on Tuesday, the Pentagon took the bold step of leaking two stories to reporters that contradict those tales. “Russia’s conduct in the brutal war tells a different story than the widely accepted view that Vladimir Putin is intent on demolishing Ukraine and inflicting maximum civilian damage—and it reveals the Russian leader’s strategic balancing act,” reported Newsweek in an article entitled, “Putin’s Bombers Could Devastate Ukraine But He’s Holding Back. Here’s Why.”

The piece quotes an unnamed analyst at the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) saying, “The heart of Kyiv has barely been touched. And almost all of the long-range strikes have been aimed at military targets.” A retired U.S. Air Force officer now working as an analyst for a Pentagon contractor, added: “We need to understand Russia’s actual conduct. If we merely convince ourselves that Russia is bombing indiscriminately, or [that] it is failing to inflict more harm because its personnel are not up to the task or because it is technically inept, then we are not seeing the real conflict.” The article says: “As of the past weekend, in 24 days of conflict, Russia has flown some 1,400 strike sorties and delivered almost 1,000 missiles (by contrast, the United States flew more sorties and delivered more weapons in the first day of the 2003 Iraq war). …

“A proportion of those strikes have damaged and destroyed civilian structures and killed and injured innocent civilians, but the level of death and destruction is low compared to Russia’s capacity. ‘I know it’s hard … to swallow that the carnage and destruction could be much worse than it is,’ says the DIA analyst. ‘But that’s what the facts show. This suggests to me, at least, that Putin is not intentionally attacking civilians, that perhaps he is mindful that he needs to limit damage in order to leave an out for negotiations.’” These Pentagon sources confirm what Putin and the Russian Ministry of Defense have been saying all along: that instead of being “stalled,” Russia is executing a methodical war plan to encircle cities, opening humanitarian corridors for civilians, leaving civilian infrastructure like water, electricity, telephony and internet intact, and trying to avoid as many civilian casualties as possible.

Until these Pentagon leaks it was difficult to confirm that Russia was entirely telling the truth and that corporate media were publishing fables cooked up by Ukraine’s publicity machine.

If Russia hasn’t done what Americans would do, it must mean they are failing…

Putin’s Bombers Could Devastate Ukraine But He’s Holding Back (NW)

Over the course of almost four weeks, missiles fired at Kyiv have been scarce. Ukrainian media have reported just more than a dozen incidents involving Russian cruise and ballistic missiles intercepted over the city and its closest suburbs since February 24. And all of them, U.S. experts say, have been clearly headed for legitimate military targets. “The fact that the mobile S-300 SAM systems are still operating is a powerful indictment of Russia’s ability to conduct dynamic or time-sensitive targeting,” the Atlantic Council asserted this week in a military brief. The DIA analyst disagrees: “For whatever reason, clearly the Russians have been reluctant to strike inside the urban megalopolis of Kyiv.

“Yes they might not be up to the U.S. task [in dynamic targeting] or in establishing air superiority … But this is the Russian air force, subordinate to the ground forces. And this war is different: it’s being fought on the ground, where everything strategic that Russia might destroy in front of its forces—bridges, communications, airfields, etc.—also becomes unusable to them as they move forward.” From the very beginning of air strikes, both U.S. analysts agree, some of the limited air and missile attacks have also had some internal logic. Take, for instance, the airfield at Hostomel, northwest of Kyiv. It wasn’t directly attacked because Russia initially used it to land paratroopers, with the hope of advancing to the capital city. Instead the airfield and the surrounding countryside became the scene a major battle, as Ukrainian forces mounted a fierce defense. In the south, Kherson airport also wasn’t attacked. The reason has become clear: Russia is now using that very airfield to stage its own forces.

“..the main source of Russia’s foreign-exchange reserves — oil and gas exports — has been excluded from the sanctions..”

Sanctioning Russia Could Topple The West (Fazi)

So what should we expect from the sanctions? Western pundits and commentators have little doubt: the sanctions will hamstring the Russian economy, sow discontent among the Russian people and elites alike, and possibly even cause the downfall of the Putin regime. At the very least, we’re told, they will hinder Russia’s war efforts. But history suggests otherwise: see Iraq, or more recently Iran. Far more likely is that this turns out to be the latest Western strategic miscalculation in a long list of strategic blunders, of which the United States’ inglorious withdrawal from Afghanistan is just the most recent example. After all, Russia has been preparing for this moment for quite some time.

Following the first wave of Western sanctions, in 2014, and partly in retaliation against them, Putin embarked on what analysts have dubbed a “Fortress Russia” strategy, building up the country’s international reserves and diversifying them away from US dollars and British pounds, reducing its foreign exposure, boosting its economic cooperation with China, and pursuing import substitution strategies in several industries, including food, medicine and technology, in an effort to insulate Russia as much as possible from external shocks. True, Putin made the mistake of leaving around half of those reserves parked in foreign central banks, resulting in these now being confiscated. But nonetheless Russia still has access to more than $300 billion in gold and foreign-exchange reserves — more than most countries in the world and more than enough to cushion any short-term fall in exports, or prop up the rouble (for a while).

Moreover, the Russian central bank reacted to the sanctions by stopping capital flows out of Russia and nationalising the foreign exchange earnings of major exporters, requiring Russian firms to convert 80% of their dollar and euro earnings into roubles. It also raised interest rates to 20% in an effort to attract foreign capital. These measures are aimed at bolstering the rouble’s value and providing a flow of foreign exchange into the country. They appear to be working: while the rouble is around 40% of its value since the start of the conflict, the Russian currency’s free-fall seems to have come to a halt for now, even registering an uptick over the past two weeks. For the time being, Russia’s financial account — the difference between the money flowing in and out of the country — is far from disastrous.

Let’s not forget that the main source of Russia’s foreign-exchange reserves — oil and gas exports — has been excluded from the sanctions, for obvious reasons: for most European countries, Russia accounts for a huge part of their oil and gas imports (and other staple commodities), and there’s simply no way of replacing those energy sources from one day to the next. In short, Russia runs no risk, in the short term, of running out of reserves and not being able to pay for its imports. But even assuming that the West decided to put a stop to all its imports from Russia overnight, there’s no reason to believe that this would bring the Russian military machine to a halt. The notion that “we are financing Russia’s war by purchasing gas and oil”, as the Finnish prime minister recently stated, is fundamentally misplaced.

A translation at the Saker. Not clear from what.

“..if the Baltic statehood develops in the same direction in which it has been developing for the last thirty years, then sooner or later the denazification operation is inevitable.”

Will Poland Invade The Western Ukraine? (Saker)

the pro-American European lobby is in a state of unstable equilibrium; it wants to intervene in this conflict, but is afraid. The Americans do not yet give sufficient guarantees. Biden is now going to Poland to talk about exactly this, and we’ll see what he tells them. Well, I think not now, not now, but in general, given what trends have prevailed in the Baltics. Sooner or later the denazification operation will have to be carried out, because, as the history of Ukraine shows, living next to the Nazi state, even if it is small, means everything equally uncomfortable. Just because we are two different systems, we are on different sides of good and evil, and we will always be in confrontation with each other, and confrontation with the state that is on our borders will always be used by our enemies, regardless of who is this enemy at the moment.

Therefore, naturally, if the Balts do not take it reasonably, then sooner or later they, just like Ukraine, will ask for the denazification operation. Ukraine asked for a long time, in fact, persuaded for 30 years. Therefore, Ukraine began to prepare for a war with Russia from the first day of its Independence. It was, by the way, her idea-fix. Well, it was getting ready, getting ready, now 30 years have passed – she got ready. Finally, she asked for the war. By and large, the Balts behave in the same way. They now think that they are covered by NATO and the EU, but as the practice of recent years has shown, this is a very unreliable umbrella.

It is unlikely that anyone will be especially tense and risk a major war for the Baltic states. Moreover, there is always a casus bellum. It’s just that now, of course, Russia is too busy to go to the Baltic states. If only they won’t interfere with Russia on their own along with the Poles. They once tried to attack Belarus. They can repeat. If they themselves do not get involved in this matter, then the problem, the Baltics, is a problem of the distant future. During this time, they can change their minds, correct themselves, establish normal contacts, and choose other politicians. But if the Baltic statehood develops in the same direction in which it has been developing for the last thirty years, then sooner or later the denazification operation is inevitable.

“Sending NATO peacekeepers to Ukraine would lead to a direct clash between the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and the alliance.”

Lavrov: Peacekeeping Effort Could Result In Direct Clash With NATO (JTN)

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned this week that if NATO sends peacekeepers into Ukraine amid Russia’s invasion, that action will lead to a direct military confrontation between Russian and allied forces. According to the Russian state news agency TASS, Lavrov said Wednesday morning, “Sending NATO peacekeepers to Ukraine would lead to a direct clash between the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and the alliance.” Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations eliminated the possibility of the U.S. becoming part of a peacekeeping operation inside Ukraine, reiterating that the Biden administration will not send American troops into the country under conflict.

“We don’t want to escalate this into a war with the United States,” said Thomas-Greenfield. “But we will support our NATO allies,” adding that President Biden “has made clear that if there is an attack on any of our NATO allies, under Article 5, that we will support those countries and defend those countries.” The war has been going on for about a month as Russia’s far larger army continues to fight for control of Ukraine’s major cities. In the past days, the battle for Ukraine’s strategic port city of Mariupol has grown increasingly fiery. Thus far, the resistance effort from Ukraine has been unexpectedly fierce, though western experts warn that the Ukrainian’s longtime outlook against Russian forces may spell trouble.

Just The News, a right wing unit, has trouble positioning itself. They must be both anti-Biden AND anti-Putin.

Ukraine Says Russia Is Holding Aid Workers Captive In Mariupol (JTN)

Speaking Tuesday night in a video address to his nation, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy accused Russian forces of seizing a humanitarian convoy in Mariupol.Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk said the Russians are holding captive 11 bus drivers and four rescue workers as well as their vehicles. Zelenskyy said the efforts to establish stable humanitarian corridors in Mariupol, which has been under heavy attack, are being “foiled by the Russian occupiers, by shelling, or deliberate terror.” A senior U.S. defense official told the Associated Press that Russian ships in the Sea of Azov are adding to the shelling of Mariupol, a strategic port city.

On Wednesday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the Russian military operation is unfolding “strictly in accordance with the plans and purposes that were established beforehand.” He added that Putin’s aims are to “get rid of the military potential of Ukraine” and to “ensure that Ukraine changes from an anti-Russian center to a neutral country.”

Uranium One. Nuff said.

How Russia Got Stronger As Bidens And Clintons Got Richer (JTN)

By 2010, the Obama-Biden-Clinton Russian reset was in full swing. The administration put forth a mutual nuclear disarmament treaty known as “New START,” which, while noble in its declared intentions, risked weakening a compliant partner such as the United States while strengthening a Russia not constrained by the rules. Another deal that Obama, Biden, and Clinton gave the Russians was called the “123 Agreement,” which allowed state-owned Russian entities like nuclear behemoth Rosatom to sell nuclear materials directly to U.S. utility companies. This deal continues to pay huge dividends to the Obama Foundation’s top donor, Chicago-based Exelon Corporation. And President Biden has allowed that deal to survive even during the Ukraine war, exempting nuclear fuel sales to U.S. utilities from his recent sanctions targeting Russian energy imports.

Meanwhile, the U.S.-driven 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal, and other so-called denuclearization efforts with Libya and North Korea, effectively sent hundreds of thousands of tons of uranium to Russia for enrichment — a huge cash and energy windfall for Putin. On top of these nuclear handouts, the Obama-Biden-Clinton team gave Russia one of the biggest prizes of all: Uranium One. Before the Russian takeover, Uranium One was a Canadian company that mined Uranium around the world. It had assets on at least three continents — Eurasia, Africa, and North America. Its assets in Wyoming, Utah, and other states constituted approximately 20% of U.S. uranium capacity and meant that the Obama-Biden Committee of Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CFIUS) would have to sign off on the deal. They could have said no, but the deal was approved.

Investors in the deal had funneled $145 million into Secretary Clinton’s family foundation. Its approval helped to give Russia a near-monopoly on global uranium production. After investigative reporter and author Peter Schweizer broke the Uranium One story in 2015, a State Department under secretary, Jose Fernandez, took the blame. Fernandez later landed a “very rewarding” position at the Clinton-connected Center for American Progress. Fernandez has now come back through the revolving door and is a top official in the Biden State Department.

“First, I put on my socks, then my pants, then my shirt, then my jacket … and then I am fully dressed.”

The Death Of The Supreme Court Confirmation Process (Turley)

“This is not a normal day for America. We have never had this moment before.” Those 15 words from Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) captured the historic confirmation hearing for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman nominated to the Supreme Court. In other respects, however, the hearing was an all-too-familiar moment, particularly in its lack of substantive legal discussion. The Jackson hearing continued the rapid reduction of the range of questions for nominees, leaving these hearings as little more than performance art for senators and an endurance test for nominees. The hearing was impressive in the ability of senators to move effortlessly between diametrically opposing positions. For those with memories extending back to 2020, there were turns that were enough to snap your neck.

In Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s hearing, members like Sen. Chris Coons (D-R.I.) declared: “What’s at issue is her judicial philosophy.” Yesterday, during Jackson’s hearing (around the 6:30 mark), Coons declared: “I don’t believe that ‘a judicial philosophy’ is always all that meaningful.” It was clear from the outset that Jackson would not discuss her judicial philosophy on interpreting the Constitution or statutes — the very issue Democratic senators cited in voting against Barrett in 2020. When asked about her judicial philosophy, Jackson responded with a discussion of her “judicial methodology.” Indeed, on the second day of questioning, Jackson told Sen. Grassley that “I do have a philosophy. My philosophy is my methodology.” It is akin to asking someone about their preferred clothing style and having them respond, “First, I put on my socks, then my pants, then my shirt, then my jacket … and then I am fully dressed.”

Given that evasion, it was not surprising that Coons felt compelled to say judicial philosophy was really not that important and the key all along was methodology. Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) agreed. After labeling Barrett an unacceptable “originalist,” she now dismisses originalism and judicial philosophy questions for Jackson (around the 8:48 mark) because “I do not find labels particularly useful.” In reality, it did not seem like any substantive answers were “particularly useful.” I have complained about that lack of substance in prior hearings where nominees discussed favorite movies and baseball but not long-held principles of constitutional interpretation. The Ginsburg Rule — enabling nominees to refuse to answer questions about their positions on particular rights — has reduced confirmation hearings to the nutritional value of a Slurpee.

“They were unsure whether saying “get vaccinated to protect others” would increase willingness to vaccinate.”

Anger Towards the Unvaccinated was Intentional Psychological Manipulation (NE)

As the first wave of the pandemic died down in 2020, the narrative was already being pushed that vaccines were the only way out. However, even before it was clear that the vaccines would predominantly be mRNA based, many were rightly hesitant to receive a novel vaccine that had been produced at warp speed. With The Science™ so convinced that their solution was the only solution, something had to be done to increase uptake. Even though there were many opposing opinions (that were ignored), it was thought that without high rates of vaccine uptake, the pandemic would likely be prolonged. Something had to be done about vaccine hesitancy, so along came Yale University with a study which began in July 2020.

The study, which was not published online until October 2021 (once everyone was vaccinated) was to test “how persuasive messaging affects COVID-19 vaccine uptake intentions”. Recent studies had shown that explaining vaccine herd immunity increased willingness to receive a vaccine and reduced the time people would wait to get vaccinated. However, other work found that prosocial appeals did not increase vaccination intentions and prosocial concerns were absent in densely populated areas. They were unsure whether saying “get vaccinated to protect others” would increase willingness to vaccinate. The authors of the study suggested that something else would be needed to get people to encourage others close to them to get vaccinated and to hold negative judgments of those who don’t get vaccinated.

“Viewing vaccination through the lens of a collective action problem suggests that in addition to increasing individuals’ intentions to receive a vaccine, effective public health messages would also increase people’s willingness to encourage those close to them to vaccinate and to hold negative judgments of those who do not vaccinate. By encouraging those close to them to vaccinate, people are both promoting compliance with social norms and increasing their own level of protection against the disease. Also, by judging those who do not vaccinate more negatively, they apply social pressure to others to promote cooperative behavior. This would be consistent with theories of cooperation, like indirect reciprocity or partner choice, that rely on free riders being punished or ostracized for their past actions to encourage prosocial outcomes. Thus, effective messaging could have outsized effects on promoting vaccination if it both causes people to vaccinate themselves and to encourage those around them to do so.”

“Dictatorship Of The Worst Kind” – Trudeau Lambasted In EU Parliament (TNC)

Croatian Member of European (MEP) Parliament and former judge Mislav Kolakusic called Prime Minister Justin Trudeau out to his face in Brussels on Tuesday, savaging Trudeau over “civil rights violations” against Freedom Convoy protesters. Speaking before the European Parliament, Kolakusic accused the prime minister of engaging in a “dictatorship of the worst kind” by using the Emergencies Act to crush peaceful demonstrations. Kolakusic’s speech followed Trudeau’s own address to the parliament, where the prime minister had sounded off on purported threats to democracy posed by freedom protesters. Kolakusic responded to Trudeau’s claims through a Croatian translator.

“To defend our rights and the rights of our children, which we have acquired over the centuries, many of us – including myself – are willing to risk our own freedom and our own lives,” he said. “Unfortunately, today there are those among us who trample on these fundamental values.” Kolakusic then turned to face Trudeau. “Canada, once a symbol of the modern world, has become a symbol of civil rights violations under your quasi-liberal boot in recent months,” he said. Kolakusic went on to blast Trudeau for the militarized crackdown on Ottawa protesters where one woman using a walker had been trampled by a police-mounted riot horse. He also referred to how Trudeau had used the Emergencies Act to freeze the bank accounts of convoy protesters and donors.

“We watched how you trample women with horses, how you block the bank accounts of single parents so that they can’t even pay their children’s education and medicine, that they can’t pay utilities, mortgages for their homes. To you, these may be liberal methods, for many citizens of the world, it is a dictatorship of the worst kind. Rest assured that the citizens of the world, united, can stop any regime that wants to destroy,” said Kolakusic.

    “Biden said last week that Putin was a “war criminal” for sending tens of thousands of troops into Ukraine.” –Armstrong.

    Pretty strange world: Biden says they sent 10,000-ish troops into Ukraine, and also says 10,000-ish Russian soldiers were killed. So there are no Russians still in Ukraine! If my math is correct about your statements here. Okay then, problem solved. Unless…hmmm…everything you say is LYING.

    And of course 21 years after the U.S. started an aggressive world war killing something well over 1,000,000 people in 20+ nations. But killing a MILLION people is not a war crime when we do it. It’s pure love! With big hug bombs! For child citizens visiting their dad in the Middle East!

    We have heard – as nothing can ever be confirmed – that yes, Russia did the invasion, with the goals as I stated. However, although the Azovs were flat-footed, the West still had a number of “resistance-ish” locations and people stockpiled. Those people waited for Russia to come through, then popped up and shot them from behind. In a way, it’s the same “Bases”, “Bunkers”, “DUMBs” or bioweapons labs? Owned by the same private oligarchs with the same private MIC armies That are all the same concept here. Occupied by the West, for the West, with quality paid mercenaries trained by and for NATO. So no idea of casualties, but may be why Russia is cautious, and if it were a cake walk, we would have heard that suggested too.

    Trading Houses Will Collapse as “Margin Call Doom Loop” Goes Global, Trafigura CFO Warns”

    Watching Zoltan, who is giving good, real information out of the blue, suddenly. “Margin Doom Loop” is a default that takes +30 days, like Evergrande did, and can be pretended didn’t default, like Evergrande + LME Nickel did. But that has consequences.

    Zoltan says it means they have run out of “Liquidity”. But since the word “liquidity” was essentially invented not to have to say “dangerous, everyday debt-leverage”, we can never run out of “liquidity.” The central bank can always lend more. They don’t WANT to lend more, because if people go under, their FRIENDS get free 0% liquidity to buy up all competition, go anti-capitalist, and it attracts too much attention to do that without a crisis. That the bank creates. By halting liquidity. Yawn. Same-old, old, old news. Was old dog, used trick when the Federal Reserve did it to all the non Federal Reserve banks in 1933, and vaporized competition from the American landscape, in true #AntiCapitalist, #AntiCompetition #GovernmentMonopoly fashion. Or should I say Fascion.

    What’s the rest of the article? “market disruptions, meaning stock-outs of certain products in certain regions.

    Oh, so you mean No Free Markets, no price discovery, no Capitalism, and state-ordained, state-protected shortages. That will kill their citizens in good Soviet fashion. Yeah, I know. I’ve been saying it for decades. But if you don’t like it you’re free to: shut your hole, don’t protest, don’t post online, don’t communicate, and no complain, or we’ll shut off your job and your bank and put you in solitary without trial. #Freedom! You’ll get nothing and like it!

    House Dems Want to Stop Oil Inflation by Creating Money out of Thin Air, Offering Americans “Direct Payments”

    To stop inflation, we must print MOAR money! For everyone, everywhere! Then prices go down! That’s just common sense, Economics 101. Think I’m kidding, this isn’t just the glue-sniffers in Congress:

    JPM CEO Dimon Urges Biden to Enact US (Fossil Fuel) Energy Industry “Marshall Plan”

    Yes, Jamie, printing another trillion or so and handing it out to your friends will totally stop inflation, I’m sure. If not, well, I’ll be really sorry on my third yacht!

    “”Monetary Bathtub Overflowing” on Misguided Fed Policy, Warns Johns Hopkins Professor” Uh, ‘flation?

    “Biden Doing Everything Possible to Drive Up the Price of Oil, Some of It’s Illegal”

    Yeah, I noted that earlier. There are no “Executive Orders.” The President enacts, you know, “LAWS”, that are passed by “Congress.” He does not start and stop the commerce of special companies he is invested in, and enforce nationwide house arrest because he has a bug stuck up somewhere. That’s when we “impeach” at a minimum, and worse than I can describe here is the historic norm.

    “Madeleine Albright, First Female Secretary of State Under Clinton, Has Died”

    Now we’ll never get to prosecute her for war crimes. But Bush and Cheney are still around. I nominate them. If they’re proud of what they’ve done, they’ll have no trouble explaining it to the court.

    “Ukraine Confirms 9 Humanitarian Corridors Agreed to as Zelensky Says Mariupol “Like Armageddon”

    Gay-leather-wearing sissy-pants clearly has no idea what “Armageddon” is. Does Mariupol EXIST? Can it be occupied again within 100 years? Are there still living creatures there, men even? Then it’s fine, unlike what he’s trying to get us into for the rest of the planet, where all three things are still optional. F around and find out.

    Clearly there is nothing I can do, not even a war flattening cities, that can make these guys behave seriously. It’s not Gravity that’s the strongest force in the universe: it’s Denial.

    Wait: I’ve not been tick-for-tick checking BTC since it’s in a range that breaks out at say $44k. But all the minor coins are now jumping, slowly creeping up on as much as 30%? What’s up with that? (Top suspect: BTC is completely rigged via Comex and Wall St derivatives with 300:1 hypothecation just like metals are.) P.S., if you want to goof off, ApeCoin is up 1200% this week.

    “U.S. analysts agree, [Russian] attacks have also had some internal logic”

    Wow! Amazing! Did it hurt much to say that? Are you okay, do you need a vacation to recover from the strain?

    I read a dozen articles on Putin, Russia, in Foreign Affairs, The Guardian, Independent, etc today. Painful. Excruciating. Deflating. Every one lost in their own propaganda, their own view without asking, without adding facts, referring to facts, reversing and rewriting history, without the premise of reason, universally denying any and all existence of any and all Nazis, of any flavor whatsoever, some while simultaneously harping about Russia’s corruption and lack of democracy and Western morals, while at the same time pointing out Western abuses, extraction, and money laundering. But by Russians, and by the Western oligarchs themselves. If one was “Russophrenia”, is the other “Anglophrenia”? Where, like BuzzFeedNews, the author has a rambling, self-absorbed rundown of 2 years of fee-fees disparaging any and all lack of faith in government, as represented by those villain PutinNazis of Jan 6, and then spends the second half of the article running down why liberals under Biden can’t and shouldn’t trust government, following the failures, betrayals, sellouts to corporations, and in the mold of “Occupy”. …He never did figure out that Jan 6 is NOT the party of “Burn it all down”, erase all institutions, and that the Far Left under Antifa and BLM are. Denizen of #OppositeLand.

    All the usual lies. All the requisite lies per paragraph. All the lies about how we’re still the City on the Hill, the beacon of morality and hope that poor idiot scum such Russia can only dream of attaining, while at the same time pointing out that Western behaviour in … well, every nation, every where, every time, worldwide, but starting with Iraq, Libya, Syria…seems to be putting a mild crimp into the value of their ceaseless moralizing. Tiresome, bloviating sauropods. And a moment later is forgotten ‘cause we’re the greatest, Russia is just paranoid, run by baby-killing Huns, and we need to completely take over and re-work Russia ‘cause they ain’t doing it right. Unlike our tolerant, free, prosperous, no-income disparity West.

    Practically, I think: Is there any end to this? Like if I were Russian strategists, can I use the West’s immeasurable capacity and reality of self-delusion to accomplish my goals? As the 30-point plan, 100% of article say “We cannot let Russia negotiate a truce.” That is, since this happened, we can ONLY be grinding and unforgiving, and destroy Russia utterly. There Is No Alternative. …To true believers such as we, practically perfect in every way. Every Russian worldwide must be murdered. They did it to themselves, those Opera Singers in orchestra. That’s that. It will happen because we said so, right here in this spreadsheet.

    I just don’t know. It’s far more difficult to plan and negotiate around the violent fantasies of the psychotically mentally ill than just an ordinary self-serving expansionist. Mafias have reason, goals, order. The West and the Empire of Chaos does not. Since they see boogeymen and delusions everywhere, you can’t even pen a summary before they see more invisible men with invisible plans, under your bed poisoning your food.

    How do you settle with such a people? How do you get them to stop? Bring them back to reason? Cure their mental illness WHILE they’re firing guns at you? That’s next to impossible even while they’re not. You tell me.

    Sanctioning Russia Could Topple the West (Fazi)”

    Which is the sort of crisis of insanity I’m talking about. So we’re on the cliff’s edge, barely held back by baling wire, and the West is voluntarily causing a multi-national sovereign default, while cutting every commission profit for moving bulk goods they can find on planet earth WHILE crushing every economy by preventing goods, transport, energy. If Russia themselves were in charge they could not fabricate a better means of collapsing us.

    But what can topple us? Markets? Hahahahahaha! All markets closing, having no products, no profits? That’s so last century! We close markets and undo trades daily now. No one notices. No products delivered? London LME doesn’t mind, Chicago hasn’t delivered metal in 10 years, and has never delivered Bitcoin on futures contract — CME futures don’t even have that option! Companies go bankrupt, GM, AIG, whoever? We print money for buyouts, bailouts, mergers. No products are sold, shortages, too expensive? We MAKE you buy them anyway. Health insurance, forced buy or else. Cable internet? Forced buy or subsidy. Cell phones? Government buys from ATT and hands you the phone free. High gas got you down? Newsom borrows $400 and gives it to you on election day.

    There IS no market. In anything. That’s what it means to be non-Capitalist, #AntiCapitalist. So if China and Russia think they will take us down via markets the joke’s on them: We don’t have any! Meanwhile Russia and China DO have real markets and DELIVER nickel, palladium, toasters, iPhones.

    I’m not saying it can’t fall; it can, but the method is ancillary to markets, not markets directly. Things like lack of confidence and lack of domestic compliance.

    “[NATO] under Article 5, that we will support those countries and defend those countries.”

    The Foreign Affairs article by Fix said the West should not put Ukraine into NATO, but use a separate, identical treaty to do the same thing. I’m sure Russia will be totally fooled by that and not be alarmed in the slightest. Especially after publishing their plans for total deception and bad faith on the front page of a worldwide magazine.
    What do you think they have to do, therefore, in such a case? AND in a case where not only Foreign Affairs, but every paper, journalist, and politician worldwide says Russia is not allowed to surrender. They can only be conquered.

    “Just The News, a right wing unit, has trouble positioning itself. They must be both anti-Biden AND anti-Putin.”

    Very common. The Right is like 2/3rds sold on all this war after making progress for peace for 20 years.

    “Ukraine Says Russia Is Holding Aid Workers Captive in Mariupol (JTN)”

    Yeah, the Ukraine says a lot of things, almost every one of which was proven false. Wake me when the headline is something you can prove. You know, by “calling” “sources” on a “Telephone” and getting their names “on record.” Haven’t seen that in decades.

    “a compliant partner such as the United States while strengthening a Russia not constrained by the rules.”

    Hahahaha! The United States was constrained by rulez? Wtf? This is the kind of bizarre, unsupportable anglophrenia in all the other articles I read this week. The U.S. hasn’t even ATTEMPTED to follow the rulez since JFK.

    “This is not a normal day for America. We have never had this moment before.” Those 15 words from Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) captured the historic confirmation”

    Yes, someday we’ll have a Black Supreme Court Judge and Black President and we can get rid of all those separate drinking fountains. Oh wait, was that 40 years ago under Reagan? Where Biden smeared him and voted against? Too busy to look.

    And things like caring/not caring, looking/not looking just show all 535 people in D.C. are self-serving bare-faced liars, lacking all morals and beliefs. In other words, a day ending in “y”.

    “Anger Towards the Unvaccinated was Intentional Psychological Manipulation (NE)”

    So they were lying, cheating, manipulative thieves, disinterested in safety or whether they were murdering everyone. Got it. Their only studies were for you to (not) buy this product, already purchased by the State in a full State-Corporate merger with a multi-billion dollar convicted felon, with no time for studies on whether it would, I dunno, kill everyone like all the Pfizer docs showed it would, and every other mRNA attempt had.

    “We create our own reality, and if we convince you you can fly when you jump off a bridge, you can. If you can’t, it’s nobody’s fault. And that’s good enough for Science!™”

    “Now enormous sunk costs of reputation/politics make it hard for ppl to admit they were wrong”

    I see no costs paid at all. By anyone. Quite the contrary, there are enduring rewards. And as 100% of the time, every computer model was 100% wrong. Yet people here still think the Climate Change computer models AREN’T totally wrong for some reason? I haven’t seen a computer not fail in almost my whole lifetime, nor a professor tell the honest truth. What does it take?

    Pandora Papers: Why would the West offshore it? I mean duh. Clinton can sell Uranium One openly, put the money in her personal bank account, sell influence worldwide to Norway, put the money in her illegal charity fund that files no taxes, 1st session Congressmen buy multimillion dollar houses at sea level, and it’s all legal and uninvestigated. Why on earth WOULD they add the friction of moving corrupt money to Panama, when every account and bank in their home country is openly corrupt now? Clearly that’s NOT true in Russia or they’d have no need for Pandora.

    But speaking of the universally-held views on Russia, 100% say that, now that Russia has off-shored their money to London, Miami, the West should totally steal 100% of it, just ’cause, RussiaRussiaRussia. Putin Bad m’kay. I’m sure that will have no bad effects to be a nation and zone that just opens up writs of piracy, boards ships, steals any money transiting, and has no basis for or due process of, all that stealing. …And it will never-ever spread to reporters or say, waitresses who donate $50 to a legal protest or anything. No! Everyone will just keep workin’ hard, relocating all their money to such nations, forever and ever, so we can steal it from them. So say the Reporters! So say the experts! Probably their computer models too. When have they ever been wrong?


    Looks Like Vanguard funded a little video designed to throw Larry Fink under the bus. BlackRock is the shop front.


    .the main source of Russia’s foreign-exchange reserves — oil and gas exports — has been excluded from the sanctions..”

    • Sanctioning Russia Could Topple The West (Fazi)

    So Putin announcing that oil and gas can only be paid in rubles means…….

    …repeatedly kneeing the West in the groin with a big grin?

    Yeh, I guess that’s what it means, at least that’s my hunch.

    And the Eurotards?

    Well, being the Empire of Lies toy poodle means lots of yapping and groveling and peeing on the carpet.

    Look, fertilizers also need to be paid in rubles.

    How’s that Spring Planting going?

    Is gut punching food prices and famine baked into that coffee cake yet?

    Cause a commodity based currency like the Ruble sure points in that general direction.

    A commode based currency like the dollar isn’t gonna keep the heat on or keep food on the table.

    Tough choice, food or fuel?

    Saw a screen shot of $9 dollars a gallon at a Californicate gas station.

    No more Big Mac for you!


    Gas prices are going to get very volatile y’all, so if you can’t be good, be careful.

    Trudeau is an hypocrite

    • “Dictatorship Of The Worst Kind” – Trudeau Lambasted In EU Parliament (TNC)

    Croatian Member of European (MEP) Parliament and former judge Mislav Kolakusic called Prime Minister Justin Trudeau out to his face in Brussels on Tuesday, savaging Trudeau over “civil rights violations” against Freedom Convoy protesters. Speaking before the European Parliament, Kolakusic accused the prime minister of engaging in a “dictatorship of the worst kind” by using the Emergencies Act to crush peaceful demonstrations. Kolakusic’s speech followed Trudeau’s own address to the parliament, where the prime minister had sounded off on purported threats to democracy posed by freedom protesters. Kolakusic responded to Trudeau’s claims through a Croatian translator.


    Bought a couple of 44 gallon oil barrels today for diesel. I figure a few hundred litres gives me a fair bit of work out of my small tractor when the arm heals up some more. Was driving to pick them up with a mate today as I can’t lift them yet and wondered at all the multitudinous retail and wholesale outfits in and around the industrial estates that need all the things that arrive on boats and planes. Things built on rising globalism we all knew was brittle. And here we are on the eve of mend and make do..

    Dr. D was right, The Empire of Lies has transmogrified into the Empire of Chaos, which makes sense since the super-duper-liberal Party of Chaos (#Derp) are now The Anointed Clergy for the Cult of Western Utopia…

    Now humans will once again murder each other for sport, not on the small, random scale @ present, no this time it’ll involve urban warfare everywhere, soon to be coming a Walmart/Toom/Asda/Carrefour near you, starting in the self-checkout isles after EBT funds et al. are inadequate to purchase a $200 box of Fruit Loops.

    The Empire of Lies and it’s toy poodle Eurotards are about to have a brain a aneurysm over the ruble basically forcing price discovery fon their sorry patoots.

    They are gonna have food and fuel rationing this fall in Eurotardistan if not sooner.

    We shall see what a ruble buys these days very shortly.

    And as the Eurotards panic and drive the cost of rubles through the roof trying to secure essentials, they are schadenfreudianly supporting Russia’s currency even as they are ‘sanctioning it’.

    The poll that The Star image about attitudes towards Russia sanctions being correlated with vaccines is at .

    I found it interesting reading–it seems to show that Unvaccinated Canadians are much less likely to favor sanctions and military action against Russia than Boosted Canadians. So the people that didn’t believe the media about vaccines also tend not to believe the media about Russia…

    Boosters are not (yet) required for vax passes in Canada (vax passes are required to fly, and for many jobs&schools), so taking a booster is more of a choice than a requirement.

    There are complaints in the comments to the link above that the sample sets may not be representative, so I suggest taking it for what it is–a poll, with all the accuracy (or not) that polls are known for.

    @ Gary

    I watched the video and felt it was of value. At this point the waves of information feel like large water coming off the ocean and smacking me in the face, going up my nose and down my throat perhaps a little bit like drowning. My memory is decreasing and at this point I try to stay informed to better prioritize. I wonder if/when products from amazon will freeze up.

    I would feel desperate to escape if I lived in a city at this point.


    Was watching Jimmy Dore a couple days back. He pronounced Volodomyr Zelensky’s first name in a way that sounded like VOLdomor’. I heard “Voldemort.” It was very amusing. Dore didn’t seem to notice the inadvertent word play (which is rare public, he often does such word play on purpose…this one appeared to be a slip of the tongue.)

    Talking about word slips…
    My daughter was completing some homework last night for her social studies class and had me nearby for consultations when she gets stuck. I had the dubious pleasure of watching the CNN 10 episode for 3/21/2022 with her. The presenter holds his eyes wide almost the entire time. (Perhaps he is trying to appear honest and open to children? I thought it was a little creepy. Made him look like a cartoon character.) The stated goals of Russia and Ukraine were presented as three bulleted points for each side. Russia’s third stated objective was the “de-nazification of Ukraine.” The presenter left off the “de-.” My daughter caught it too. The presenter didn’t bat an eye. He had just stated that Russia wanted the “nazification of Ukraine.” My daughter marveled at this — pointing out that it could have been re-recorded and fixed. I agreed that it was odd.


    Why are there people cheering for Ukraine?
    In the donbas region, it took 8 years to kill 14,000 Russians. Now, It only took one month to kill 10,000 Russians.

    Michael Reid

    I just noticed my previous post repeated 5 times a portion of the comment from Veracious Poet and that was simply an error with the copy/paste. It seems funny trough in that it reminds me of the wave after wave of information.


    Gary –

    Agree with you. The vision of the anointed is a vision of death. However, and this is a key point – the anointed believe they are holding on to a vision of life. What binds them is that they hold this shared mirage as the one and only truth. In daily living they consume and thrive on what confirms their view. The deeper they go, the longer they stay, the harder it is to break out/break through.

    Therefore, it will be impossible to CHANGE them as a group.

    That leaves us with only one option. The change/shift that we seek, happens on the INDIVIDUAL level, and begins with each of us. You know this. Change/awakening/Peace/Purpose is an “inside job”. Generating an internal shift on the INDIVIDUAL level = AWAKENING.

    Commentators at TAE share experiences of their lives in fulfillment of daily living. Since the prescription of “possession of a vocation” can be applied to everything from parenting, gardening, building fuel storage infrastructure, volunteering, managing a street soup kitchen, showing up at the office – the collection of diverse experiences makes TAE a source of valuable insight. It’s not what we do but how we work that matters!

    Working with LOVE gives PURPOSE, value, and meaning to what you are doing. Discovery of this “secret” TRUTH, understanding how it works, application/activation of it in daily living – is where it gets exciting. Anyone/All who encourage this understanding, who gather to share and compare notes are engaging in an act of pure LOVE.

    With reverence and gratitude to Vincent van Gogh (Weaver 1884 above plus his many other paintings of workers working) – who expanded awareness on the meaning of living life by painting everyday men and women at work.

    Om Shanti. LOVE to All.


    On Work
    Kahlil Gibran

    You work that you may keep pace with the earth and the soul of the earth.
    For to be idle is to become a stranger unto the seasons,
    and to step out of life’s procession, that marches in majesty and proud submission towards the infinite.

    When you work you are a flute through whose heart the whispering of the hours turns to music.
    Which of you would be a reed, dumb and silent, when all else sings together in unison?

    Always you have been told that work is a curse and labour a misfortune.
    But I say to you that when you work you fulfil a part of earth’s furthest dream, assigned to you when that dream was born,
    And in keeping yourself with labour you are in truth loving life,
    And to love life through labour is to be intimate with life’s inmost secret.

    But if you in your pain call birth an affliction and the support of the flesh a curse written upon your brow, then I answer that naught but the sweat of your brow shall wash away that which is written.

    You have been told also that life is darkness, and in your weariness you echo what was said by the weary.
    And I say that life is indeed darkness save when there is urge,
    And all urge is blind save when there is knowledge,
    And all knowledge is vain save when there is work,
    And all work is empty save when there is love;
    And when you work with love you bind yourself to yourself, and to one another, and to God.

    And what is it to work with love?
    It is to weave the cloth with threads drawn from your heart,
    even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth.
    It is to build a house with affection,
    even as if your beloved were to dwell in that house.
    It is to sow seeds with tenderness and reap the harvest with joy,
    even as if your beloved were to eat the fruit.
    It is to charge all things you fashion with a breath of your own spirit,
    And to know that all the blessed dead
    are standing about you and watching.

    Often have I heard you say, as if speaking in sleep, “He who works in marble, and finds the shape of his own soul in the stone, is nobler than he who ploughs the soil.
    And he who seizes the rainbow to lay it on a cloth in the likeness of man, is more than he who makes the sandals for our feet.”
    But I say, not in sleep but in the overwakefulness of noontide, that the wind speaks not more sweetly to the giant oaks than to the least of all the blades of grass;
    And he alone is great who turns the voice of the wind into a song made sweeter by his own loving.

    Work is love made visible.
    And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.
    For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half man’s hunger.
    And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your grudge distils a poison in the wine.
    And if you sing though as angels, and love not the singing, you muffle man’s ears to the voices of the day and the voices of the night.

    The North American half of the Great Western Empire is about to contract a severe case of Eurotarditis, on account of the European branch of the outfit not feeling inclined to commit suicide by RussoCop.


    So, I’ve started reaching out to people in my social circle, explaining what I think is going on. A form of political vaccination, though belated, meant to expose people to the possibility that there’s what we’re told, and then there is something entirely different and nefarious going on. In part of the letter I had this passage:

    And now we have the Ukraine war. Funny how that came along just in time to dominate everyone with a new fear and outrage narrative. I kind of suspect that the war news is amplified to cover up the ongoing demolition of the financial system and the emerging awareness of how falsely we have been played with COVID and the vaccines; anyone seen Anthony Fauci in the past month or so? With the shortages and inflation in commodities/food/energy and the deflation in everything else (like personal assets or things you might want to sell on Craigslist), I figure the cataclysm can’t be far off.

    Although COVID and vaccines have disappeared magically from most of the public discourse, I believe the globalists are not done with us. They’re going to be beavering away out of sight at the WHO to further bind nations to their pandemic response protocols, and pass laws at the state and national levels to introduce and normalize digital ID systems.

    Those of us who believe in medical freedom in Oregon managed to make enough noise to stave off a very bad bill that would have given dictatorial power to the director of the Oregon Health Authority to compel Oregonians on any issue of health concern, including mandatory vaccination. As passed, the bill apparently has a ‘conscientious objection’ clause, thank God. I may still be able to continue to live in this state.

    And then I run across this link, which explains the beavering away that is going on, with a projected timeline, from The Corbett Report substack:

    Picture with fresh banana shoots coming up

    Last night I noticed an email from Google that the blog post “Worst Enemy” from 3/19/22 had been “deleted” due to violation of some condition in the list on their website, to which they thoughtfully sent a link for my edification.
    The post had garnered over 100 views on Blogger, and 380 on Substack, where it remains uncensored

    I started up the Substack blog after the 2/22/22 post “Two New Countries” prompted Google to delete my blog and gmail account.
    It was the same vague “figure out your sin” message.
    We jumped through Google’s hoops and it was all reinstated, including the “Two New Countries” post, which had looked at Russian recognition of Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, declared 8 years previously by the republics, under duress of Ukrainian nationalist genocide, following the US-instigated 2014 coup.
    Substack allowed me to send to subscribers, so I did not have to do that via gmail, which was the likely reason our gmail account was “disappeared” at the same time as Johnday’s Blog.
    I had started Johnday’s Blog in spring 2016, when my bcc email news-sends to about 200 friends started getting blocked, no matter what I did to comply. The main anti-narrative work I was doing was documenting the Democratic Primary fraud, which was disenfranchising Sanders voters (like myself). That censorship stopped 3 days after Trump was elected (without my help. I voted for Jill Stein). It happened again leading up to the 2018 and 2020 elections, b ut people could look at the blog if the email did not go through.
    There has been censorship associated with my medical investigations of the COVID pandemic, suppression of early and hospital medical treatments, including ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. The American Board of Family Medicine is reviewing my Board Certification status (31 years) for “discouraging patients from vaccination against COVID-19”, also known as “informed consent”. They cited the (factual, linked) information on my blog as damning evidence. They are dragging this process out.

    What is consistent is that information disputing or disproving the current Control-Narrative being promulgated by power-elites is what will be censored.
    The “Worst Enemy” post addressed this specifically, and included multiple narrative-deflating links and excerpts, opening with an essay that explained how “The West Is At War With Itself”, or self-defeating, or “its own worst enemy”. This begs the question of “why that post?”. There was analysis of the Ukraine war from various sometimes-censored Russian and Russia-friendly sites.

    Mish Shedlock may crack that nut open with this article about how the Biden administration is driving oil prices up, while pretending to try to lower them.
    It is not merely the sanctions against Russian oil and gas. There is more.
    I have been aware of predictions that the world would face an oil supply crisis in 2023 since late 2021. It seems to me that the price shock early this year will reduce the demand for oil at these high prices by depressing economies. That “heads it off at the pass”, softening the hard supply-inadequacy shock.
    The control-narrative of war-with-Russia is tried and true, worked well for the “owners” for most of my life, and has now been fully-rehabilitated for the peak-oil crisis.
    Last June Gail Tverberg had this analysis: Where Energy Modeling Goes Wrong
    Summary: The economy is approaching near-term collapse, not peak oil. The result is quite different.
    The modeling that comes closest to being correct is that which underlies the 1972 book, The Limits to Growth by Donella Meadows and others. This modeling was based on physical quantities of resources, with no financial system whatsoever. The base model, shown here, indicates that limits would be reached a few years later than we actually seem to be reaching them. The dotted black line in Figure 1 indicates where I saw the world economy to be in January 2019, based on the limits we already seemed to be reaching at that time.
    (I think that line is drawn at 2010, myself.)

    Where Energy Modeling Goes Wrong


    John Day

    ​ There is a control-narrative scramble to herd people into a response to the end-of-cheap-energy, as pollution, global warming, and global shortages of critical minerals for batteries, chips and electric motors break the finely tuned global economy and supply chains.
    “We” tried Global-Warming/climate-change, but it was hard to get people motivated to change, and businesses still had to maximize profits and compete, so buying an electric car, solar panels and wind turbines happened, but there was no reduction in mining or burning.​
    Climate change is happening, but it’s less of threat than running short of oil, which is slated to happen first.

    “COVID-Pandemic” control-narrative DID decrease global oil usage, even American oil consumption decreased, but that control-narrative is worn out. It spent its last burst on mandating the deadly mRNA gene-therapy “vaccines”, which make people up to 3 times as likely to catch the latest COVID variant when it comes to town.

    Vaccine Effectiveness Hits as Low as Minus 300% – as UKHSA Announces it Will No Longer Publish the Data

    The WAR-With-Russia control-narrative can be “turned up to eleven”, and evokes the rational fear of nuclear Armageddon. Russia and Europe seem to be cooperating. What could go wrong?
    War could go wrong, of course, but there are a lot of economic and financial details to work out. There is going to be a “new” world financial order, and all of the players want to control it so that it sends them rent payments without fail. I commonly see the threat of the Chinese Yuan/renminbi displacing the dollar as global reserve currency shot down, but it is a straw-man threat.
    What the Chinese, Russians, other Asian countries, Iran and others are looking at is a specific global trade currency, such as John Maynard Keynes described in the 1930s-1940s, but which was not adopted at Bretton Woods. It would be backed by commodities, like gold, oil, wheat, rice and soybeans, and actual industrial output from factories. Saudi Arabia is making it clear that it is happy to consider divorce from the $US, as that “protection” deal looks like it might better be serviced by Russia and China soon.
    What the global banking friends would like to see is global digital currency, and they are willing to give us free-money in a digital account so that we will become reliant upon it. California seeks to be an innovator, but the EU is all over it, too.
    Yes, the currency will hyperinflate this way, but novel “fixes” like eliminating your money will become available to central bankers.

    In general will be a better place to look for my research as we go forward into harsher economic times, and probably harsher censorship of truthful foils to the dominant control-narrative. “WAR!” will be the control narrative for the foreseeable future, and the real problem will be global resource depletion.
    Keep those points in mind, and steer towards food security and lower cost living, especially where you can grow vegetables and the local people and weather won’t (usually) try to kill you.


    Dmitry Orlov’s latest comment on the Empire of Lies

    Looks like Jim Kunstler’s World Made by Hand is coming to the USSA

    “After 30 years of glue sniffing euphoria, the US is now crashing. And when it realizes it is cutting off its limbs to keep its jaundiced organs alive, it will have to make major, and costly, changes in living arrangements. Mass transit in lieu of suburban sprawl. No more bloated military. A return to local industry and farming. Far more labor intensive cooperatives that actually do things and make stuff. Regional cultural and quasi-sufficiency. The end to industrial entertainment and woke academia. A resurgence of a proletariat based religion of hard work and respect. A return to classical literature and art. Oh, how to pay for it all on NO budget?…”


    So I thought I should buy some Rubles, for various reasons
    I would NOT have expected to lose money (long term), but
    in Canada, not available. Is this the start?

    Thanks for the affirmations concerning the power of love in one’s vocational energy & action during our sojourn through this reality…

    Other than fleeting moments in the Now, where I commune with the Loving, Healing, Creative Power of The Infinite, the vocation of Service in Love remains the impetus moving me forward on the journey.

    I reflected today on how mass psychosis aids & abets “The Anointed” (winners) in their quest to Reign in Hell, which is the impetus of deranged, spiritually sick child minds (EGO)…

    It is #AntiLove, #AntiWork, as it seeks to subjugate the lesser pawns (losers) fealty to support “The Anointed” Oligarch’s irrational obsession with fear, death & finite power.


    I understand information overload, which is why it’s best to just review a few “news” sources ~ Less is more.

    Over millennias “The Anointed” have always relied on the irrational-ism of denial to legitimize their crimes against humanity, against the Infinite’s Universe itself…

    If the humans of this age are content to continue playing The Anointed games, falling under the spell of terminal hubris, then who am I as one voice to stop them?

    All I can do is continue my vocation of Love, caring for the souls relying upon my servitude, until I am reunited with the Source…

    Do not be afraid to choose the “Road Less Traveled”, the alt. is a living hell.

    In love & servitude always,

    Globalists Release Timeline for Health Tyranny


    Thanks for linking the Corbet Report article above. I wasn’t too thrilled with the World Health Assembly’s proposed timeline to implement a ‘legally binding agreement’ for the international coordination of future global health emergencies.

    So I put together a different timeline that I think will be even more effective at insuring a better outcome for global public health:

    The only hope Western civ has to stop an international tsunami against it, arising from these crimes against humanity + others, is to offer up “The Anointed” directly connected + their henchmen.

    Otherwise China, Russia, India, Brazil, House of Saud et al. will become the “Allies” empowered to put down the rabid “Axis” powers of the West…

    China Demands Answers From US Over Russian Revelations About Military Biolabs in Ukraine
    On Monday, the Russian military revealed that the Pentagon’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency has been involved in the operation of over 30 biological laboratories across Ukraine, engaged in the storage and research into a variety of deadly agents.
    8 March, 13:09 GMT


    Events in the Ukraine are as clear as mud!
    The Ukrainians are clearly losing!
    The Russians don’t plan on being finished with the last Ukrainian, until mid-May at the earliest.

    It looks like at least the eastern part of Mariupol has been cleared of neo-nazis.
    It is also possible all of Mariupol has been cleared.
    Videos of Mariupol show what I thought was happening.
    The Russians are now using the low casualty approach to the neo-nazis.
    That means doing whatever it takes to kill neo-nazis without getting killed.
    The top halves of tall apartments where the neo-nazis were, are totally destroyed.
    You fire a rifle bullet, I fire a 120 mm tank round at you. Any questions?
    There was a victory parade in Mariupol today.

    Clearly the Russian meat grinder is slowly but surely working it’s way to the last Ukrainian.

    The Ukrainians, using missiles, hit 2 Russian supply ships in a port. One was damaged and left for repairs. The second ship caught fire so the captain wisely opened the valves and sank the ship to eliminate the risk of it exploding. That was today’s Ukrainian victory.

    Meanwhile Biden is in Brussels to convinced the European zombies to jump off the cliff instead of walking along the edge!

    Nice of the Europeans to remember Trudeau so fondly! At least Europeans are free to say what we here in Canada are not free to say. And Trudeau wants a new jet so he can to travel to countries that don’t want him.

    Remember, we are the WEF’s ultimate target!

    My guess is this is how most of the world sees the conflict at this point in time. I’ve read elsewhere there are links to Dalzac and friends, so COVID could be shown to be an American attack on the world, given Biden wants his US led “New World Order”.

    Can we just send them all to Crimea for the war crimes trials?

    Hunter Biden’s Investment Fund Connected to Financing of Pentagon-Funded Biolabs in Ukraine: MoD

    In recent weeks, the Russian Defence Ministry has peeled back layers of information about 30+ Pentagon-funded biolabs feared to be engaged in dangerous and illegal research into deadly pathogens in Ukraine. US officials and media initially denied that the labs existed, but a senior Biden administration official later confirmed their presence.

    An investment firm connected to US President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden has been implicated in the financing of the Pentagon’s military biological programme in Ukraine, the head of Russia’s Radiation, Chemical and Biological Defence Troops has announced, citing fresh documents.

    “Incoming materials have allowed us to trace the scheme of interaction between US government bodies and Ukraine’s biolabs. The involvement in the financing of these activities by structures close to the current US leadership, in particular the Rosemont Seneca investment fund managed by Hunter Biden, draws attention to itself,” RCBD Troops chief Igor Kirillov said in a briefing Thursday.

    According to the MoD’s information, the fund has at least $2.4 billion in investment capital. “At the same time, a close relationship has been established between the the fund and key contractors of the US military, including Metabiota, which alongside Black & Veatch is one of the main suppliers of equipment for Pentagon biolaboratories around the world,” Kirillov added.
    The Los Alamos National Laboratory – birthplace of the US atomic bomb, has served as one of the chief curators of the US military biological programmes in Ukraine, Kirillov said.

    USAID, Soros Foundations, CDC Also Involved, MoD Says
    “The scale of the programme is impressive. Along with the Pentagon, the US Agency for International Development (USAID), the Soros’ Open Society Foundations, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are directly involved in its implementation,” the officer said.

    “Scientific supervision is carried out by leading research organizations, including the Los Alamos National Laboratory, which developed nuclear weapons for the Manhattan Project.

    All of this activity has been carried out under the direct control of the Pentagon.”
    Kirillov accompanied his presentation with new Ukrainian-language documents detailing the operations of laboratories suspected of involvement in US-funded military biological activities, including a detailed listing of 31 laboratories across 14 settlements.

    “This document was signed by deputy state secretary of the cabinet of ministers of Ukraine Viktor Polishchuk. The legal basis for its signature was an agreement on cooperation to prevent the spread of technologies, pathogens and information which can be used to develop biological weapons. The registration card identifies the customer: the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, and also includes a list of bio facility sites,” the officer said.

    The MoD also released a document from the office of the secretary of defense approving Project Concept UP-2, described as a ‘multi-pathogen mapping’ project which “includes molecular fingerprinting of pathogens endemic to Ukraine and strain transfer.”

    The 2008 document was signed by Richard Douglas, who served as deputy assistant secretary of defense during the George W. Bush administration, and Arthur Hopkins, a deputy assistant to the Secretary of Defense for nuclear, chemical and biological defense programmes.

    Ukrainian Troops Used as Guinea Pigs

    Kirillov provided other new details on US military biological activities in Ukraine in his presentation, citing documents detailing the testing of unlicensed pharmaceutical products which did not pass licensing procedures in the US and Canada on Ukrainian military personnel under a programme known as ‘Deep Drug’.

    “Documents confirm an attempt to test previously untested drugs on Ukrainian military personnel [under the] Deep Drug screening system for pharmaceuticals which have not passed the licensing procedure in the United States and Canada. The special cynicism of the US sponsors of the programme lies in the fact that the developer -Skymount Medical Group, offered to purchase the system on a commercial basis, even though employees of the Ukrainian defence ministry were used as volunteers” for its testing, Kirillov said.

    Kirillov also that over 4,000 individuals were involved in research under the previously detailed Project UP-8, and that according to a Bulgarian media investigation, 20 Ukrainian servicemen died and 200 hospitalized during experiments in the Kharkov laboratory alone.

    The officer suggested that such practices were nothing new, recalling that in 2010, authorities in Indonesia terminated biological research activity being conducted by the US Naval Medical Center in Jakarta over numerous violations and a refusal by US authorities to inform the Indonesian government about the results of their research.

    Kirillov also revealed that Pentagon-affiliated pharmaceutical firm Gilead has been involved in the testing of its products in Ukraine and Georgia.

    Industrial-Scale Export of Biosamples

    Russia’s Radiation, Chemical and Biological Defence Troops have established that the US and its allies have exported about 16,000 biosamples from Ukraine as part of their military biological activities in the country. “Such large-scale screening of the natural immunity of the population was likely carried out in order to select biological agents that are most dangerous for the population of a particular region,” Kirillov said.

    The officer pointed to the taking of blood samples from 4,000 servicemen in Lvov, Kharkov, Odessa and Kiev for antibodies to hantaviruses under Project UP-8, and an additional 400 samples probing for antibodies to the Crimean-Congo fever virus. He added that in addition to tissue and blood serum samples, dangerous pathogens and their carriers were exported abroad from Ukraine.

    Over 10,000 samples were sent to the Lugar Center in Georgia alone, according to Kirillov, with labs in the UK and the Leffler Institute in Germany also serving as recipients, subjecting not only Ukraine but the entire region to dangers.

    New COVID

    Kirillov warned that the spread of pathogenic biomaterials in Ukraine could lead to a new pandemic, saying that in the Russian military’s view, “the current situation involving the spread of pathogenic biomaterials from Ukraine to European countries can cause death and create a hotbed of epidemiological instability the scale of which would be comparable to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

    The officer pointed to the Pentagon’s record of causing health scares involving deadly pathogens, recalling that betwen 2005 and 2015, live anthrax spores were accidentally sent from the US Army Dugway Proving Ground to 194 addressees in ten different countries.

    Anthrax Insects

    Krillov also pointed to suspected US interest in the means of transmitting anthrax through insects. “The interest of US military biologists in the study of insect vectors in the locations of cattle burial grounds appears not have been accidental, with researchers analyzing the results of an outbreak of anthrax in Yamal in 2016, during which cases of transmission of the disease through flies and horseflies were recorded,” he said.

    International Investigation Needed

    The officer echoed concerns voiced by China’s foreign ministry earlier this month about the real purpose of the 336 labs scattered across 30 countries being operated with US funding and other forms of support, and suggested that in light of the new information which has been disclosed, an international investigation is in order.

    Thursday’s revelations by the MoD follow a separate document dump last week containing frightening details on some of the research feared engaged in at US-funded laboratories scattered across Ukraine, such as work studying the transmission of diseases through bats, ‘Project Flu-Fly-Way’, studying how wild migratory birds might be used as vectors to transmit avian influenza, and others.

    The Russian military started disclosing details on the scale and scope of the US-funded network of biolabs in Ukraine on 6 March, reporting, citing documents, that the Ukrainian health ministry had given the order to scrub incriminating evidence on research into deadly pathogens including anthrax, the plague, tularemia, cholera and other deadly diseases.

    US officials and media dismissed the Russian allegations, releasing “fact check” pieces explaining that the “false claim of US biolabs in Ukraine [is] tied to [a] Russian disinformation campaign.” These same officials and outlets were forced to change their tune after US undersecretary of state Victoria Nuland confirmed that the biolabs existed, and that the US was “quite concerned” that Russian troops might take control of the facilities.—mod-1094150901.html


    @VP Gary

    Must have been a mixup, as I misread Zerosum’s post and didn’t see it as the link I posted earlier. I was looking for the China article snippet. The 404 might have something to do with internet censors, as I’m even getting intermittent error messages even on the Brave browser. How long do they think they can keep this info under wraps? Enter false flags blamed on the Russians.

    Work is love made visible. So true!
    But work doesn’t have to be labeled as work!
    Doing anything that you enjoy counts IMO too!
    I have been collecting maple sap but I am enjoying it, so I wouldn’t call it work per say. Focused effort yes! Holding 500 ml of maple syrup gives me great satisfaction!

    Your collecting firewood might give you great satisfaction such that you look forward to it! It is hard not to love the sight of a cut and stacked cord of wood!
    The same for planting and harvesting a garden like Dr. John Day does!
